Well, I got too far ahead with playing and not enough picture taking... so here's the Kulo Seeri equivalent of an end-of-year newspaper article. Next season's updates will be at least semi-regular. :)
Summer 132 saw a huge baby boom in Kulo Seeri: four pregnancies resulted in the birth of eight babies.
Arafa Herendez and Nathan Gorski welcomed a son, Kelam Herendez, not long after their daughter Sasha became a toddler. Despite being parents twice over, as well as getting constant nagging from the elders, Nathan seems to be in no hurry to settle down. Rumour has it that Arafa has been getting closer to Markal Go... is this why?
Lilac zan-Avei and Anyu zan-Avira are now the parents of triplets, son Kanith and daughters Tsayash and Kamiya. "It was unexpected to say the least", says Lilac, "but it's brought a little joy back into our lives after losing two of our older children."
Zareb zan-Ace and Kim Yoo have also welcomed triplet daughters Cassia, Para and Nenash. Older sister, Prisa Yoo (7) says "They're the sweetest little babies ever!". Her twin brother Anan says "It's impossible to tell which one's Cassia and which one's Nenash."
Claire Ursine, who immigrated from TS3-era Sunset Valley a few years ago, and Shansam Herendez now have a little girl, Renee Ursine. Renee is the first baby with Sena Yuleng's lizard features to be born in over sixty years. "I'm glad I don't have to explain this to the hospital staff!" Claire commented.
Shansam and Claire, who have been best friends since Shansam's student days at Sims University, have decided to get married following the birth of their daughter. The wedding is set for Spring 135. Shansam's half-alien son Kuvato (4) says: "Yuck."
A rat infestation in Teal Camp brought illness to the village in late spring, 131. Although our healers managed to stop it spreading further, Kifsina and Kitira zan-Avei both died of the disease. Lilac and Anyu wish they could have been there to meet their new siblings.
The tribe also lost its oldest member towards the end of Summer. Casey zan-Ellen died peacefully in his sleep aged 82, leaving behind his wife Li, granddaughter Natabu and great-grandchildren Lily and Gareth. Li says: "He was a very supportive man - he never minded about Hestrie, or Shansam."
Asken, Tia and Briar zan-Ace's visit to TS4 resulted in the birth of the first ever Nuidya quintuplets. Three boys, Treneskris, Hatiro and Kehansen, and two girls, Katari and Evrezeya, have been driving their parents crazy for an entire year now. The quins celebrated their first birthday towards the end of spring. "They're even more of a handful now!" says Tia.
This summer, 13 year old Zakash Yoo became the first Nuidya in history to sleep through half of her own rite of passage. The ceremony was a very rushed event as a result. Zakash intends to leave Kulo Seeri when she's older, and would like to apply to an interhood university one day.
