This Sims 2 blog follows the lives of the Nuidya tribespeople of the northern mountains, as they try to survive, thrive and figure out what exactly it means to be a lizardsim. Along the way, there'll be drama, romance, utter silliness and lots of cats. Just watch out for those storm demons - they're sneaky. :)

Abina's Vengeance: Study or Die, Semester 1

VT Says: In my last post here, I was struggling to decide what to do with five four and a half troublemakers in Kulo Seeri. (Branch isn't a bad sort - he was doing what he thought was his only option to protect his family - but the other four do kind of deserve this.)

"This" is the Study or Die Challenge by hexagonal-bipyramid, which pits five students against a haunted house and an angry ghost. The tribal council has put Anan, Asken, Ganyalis, Branch and Pollux in an empty house in Sim State University, along with the vengeful spirit of Abina mi-Avira - quite appropriate, given that Abina was the target of the (failed/semi-thwarted) murder plan that got Ganyalis and Branch in here. She was also working on the tribe's first semi-formal code of law since the days of Azanni the Tyrant, back in the second generation, and has since ascended to the role of Patron Ancestor of Justice.

Of course, this isn't an automatic death sentence for them - it's a chance at redemption, with the guarantee of being pardoned for their crimes and getting a fresh start in the next rebuild of Kulo Seeri if they graduate. If they graduate.

And without any further waffling, here begins the (rather badly scripted) adventure...

Causing Trouble in Paradise...

...Because "What shall we do with the howling he-wolves, early in the play round?" was too long a title.

Basically, I'm close to playing Kulo Seeri again, but I need to work out how to deal with a few issues that cropped up in the last couple of iterations.

We are back!

(Cross-posted from my simblr)

Wooo! I just finished recreating the last batch of Sims for new Kulo Seeri!  (And taking a backup. I am not letting my last goof-up happen again.) Now I can play TS2 again!!

I’ll be playing sort of a one-day “trial run rotation” where I won’t be taking any pics, so I can get reacquainted with everyone in KS and they can get settled into Pleasantview (which I will probably rename) before I start rolling ROS and blogging and stuff. But rest assured that my story posts will be returning VERY SOON. :D

Space-Time Quandaries

VT says: I'm alive! And still rebuilding the download cut for new Kulo Seeri. Grr. Anyway, I'm about to tag off to Nita, a Sim born during one of my two TS3 distractions, to explain a slight dilemma we've got. She's asked me to put this one to my followers, so any feedback is welcome :) VT out!

11th Anniversary Special: The Life of Vedrafe

Kulo Seeri is eleven years old today! It's a bittersweet moment for me, though... one of my favourite Sims recently passed away, and since I'm still hoodless and rebuilding at the moment, I wanted to dedicate this anniversary post to her.

It took me the best part of a week to answer the questions, but I got there! My answers are right under the cut:

Traits and Elements v2 (and VT is clueless)

It was my birthday last week, and you know what that means - special post time! I'm still in the process of rebuilding Kulo Seeri, but my Traits & Elements system attracted a lot of interest on a thread about arranged marriages on Plumb Bob Keep recently, and I promised a post around my updated system... so here it is.

Read on for a lot of rambling about elemental balance, an example from my game, and one embarrassing anecdote about some seriously unbalanced Freshwater...
