I apologise for the long absence from blogger, everyone - it's been a summer of various illnesses and family drama, not to mention another rebuild, which I'm rambling about on my simblr. (Sometimes it feels like all I ever do is rebuild...)
But that's not quite true - I am playing. Kulo Seeri has just gained a "spinoff series"!
Zade zan-Ace has put in a few appearances in my story posts before now. Starting life as S'Ahmisa zan-Ace's plantbaby, grown in TS3 Bridgeport towards the end of that two-decades-long gap year, she grew up and stepped in to help Markal with his four motherless babies after Turi's death. Just as the older two were about to leave home, she started flirting with other guys in front of Markal and they divorced. I don't even think Zade likes kids. She's just in it to gain favour.
But now? She's just been found guilty of a serious crime, and sent packing from Lluza with the first lot of traders who came up the mountain trails this spring. Now she's living somewhere as unlike KS and Lluza as my Sims can get... Strangetown.
Zade has been exiled here for life (along with her dog Ella). What's a former Nuidya to do on an empty 5x5 lot in the middle of the desert? Here's a hint: it starts with "L" and ends with "egacy". I'm doing this in a completely different style to KS - Maxis Match style, premade neighbours, and more mod cons than mods.
Which is exactly how KS itself got started - so I'm going back to my Simming roots here.
This is the Rakal Legacy (ra kal = "hairless" in Maltiazi; a shaved head is the mark of a criminal in Kulo Seeri) and I'll be playing it alongside Kulo Seeri. I haven't started playing yet, but it should be fun, and break up the monotony of rebuilding a bit. :)
