The Powers That Be ram a coffee table through Boris' head. He's tough, he ignores it.
Closeups of Lolth and Robinson.
I must have had a reason for this pic, but danged if I know what it was. Maybe because he looks so darn happy?
"He fell asleep on my feet, I couldn't possibly move and wake him up!"
I got these when Iktomi was on his date. They appeared, these three popups, and then I never saw them again.
It's Inheritance Baby! Reblog Inheritance Baby and you too will get an inheritance of big cash coming your way!
"Mom says we're going to leave tomorrow. We could totally try for one more night on the town!"
Doesn't Boris look so sweet here?
Looks are deceiving. He's as nasty as possible.
"Should I move the plate of food? Or the diaper? Eh, who cares."
Hey, remember Kumonga? I kinda forgot about her - because she apparently disappeared. ^^;; Or maybe I lost those pictures when she moved out? So I summoned her back, and she was an adult, so it's likely she adultified and moved out and I just don't have the pix. So here are some closeups of her.
The final tally for all husbands and deaths:
Husband #1 was Joe the Garden Club Guy who fathered Charlotte and died of hunger.
Husband #2 was Sasha the Slob who fathered Aragog and died of flies.
Husband #3 was Neville the dancer-chef who fathered Shelob and died of drowning.
Husband #4 was Guy the Coach Guy who fathered Lolth and died of hail.
Husband #5 was Oliver Nancarrow who fathered Kumonga and died of disease.
Husband #6 was Brashen the townie, who fathered Iktomi and died of cowplant.
Husband #7 was Clarence Phillippine, who fathered Boris and Robinson, and died of electrocution.
Husband #8 was Matt Minter, who fathered Lord Arachnos and died of spontaneous combustion/heatstroke.
Husband #9 was Beavis Rickard who fathered Anansi and died of satellite.
Husband #10 was Trent Paulson (Senator Do-Rag) who fathered Ungoliant and died of fright.
Honestly this is way better than I anticipated! I really thought the ghosts would get a husband earlier than that.
As you likely saw, I tried to use the running with scissors, but that didn't work out. The sim would run for a few seconds, then stop and put them down. It proved too much of a hassle.
The Spyders also got a murphy bed, but I couldn't kill anyone off with it. Oh, I tried! How I tried to kill Beavis with it! But that too failed to happen.
Yes, I cheated a bit with the satellite; but the odds on that are so abysmally low naturally that just raising the odds seemed fine.
I didn't keep score in any other way. Relationship scores? Who cares! I was in it for the death variety. A mixed M.O. made it harder to track Deb down. And you know who turned her in, don't you?
As far as "BW must die by one of her husbands" - well, they're all dead, and I had two ghost kills on the lot already. I thought it would be "much justice", as the kids today say, if Deb got the death penalty for her numerous crimes.
I removed all her makeup and jewelry for the execution. That prison jumpsuit is a 2005-ish Fanseelamb file! Thank goodness it was still on MTS. So was the electric chair.
I built a little shack on the same lot so I didn't have to move things around too much, but tbh I don't remember if she actually died in the chair or not. The flailings were a little weird since she had a frozen expression on her face.
After the pix for the story, I had Deb die in the house so she'd have a tombstone etc. But I wanted her in the prison jumpsuit, so I cheated her a fright death.
"Look, kids, your mom was a psychopath and I'm not sure any of you are much better. Except you, Robbie."
Deb's kids each got $10k, from the look of it; which would be eleven of the sixteen recipients right there. I suspect Stoner and Ratna each got some, too. Maybe Erhardt Brains?
Deb got to be the center of the little graveyard. At some point I need to move them all to the community lot? I suppose I should do that before everyone moves out.
I originally had a little bit to play out where the older boys talk about what to do. Robinson would be the only one who cared enough to say he would drop out of school a little bit to watch over the baby during the day. In theory, if each one of them skipped only one day at a time, they could get through the week without too much impact on grades, until Iktomi became an adult. But I couldn't see Iktomi or Boris giving two s***s about the rest of the kids, and wanting to take off ASAP.
So, let's see how all the kids would look as adults, shall we? Since I don't know that I'll come back to them anytime soon, now that this household is finally DONE. I didn't play out the kids' growing-up; I aged them up to see what they'd look like, then exited without save so they can still wander around in their proper ages for a while.
I don't know how Iktomi ended up taking her to the cake. Poor sweet innocent baby!
Or, par for the course of this family, not so sweet. :/
Anansi's teen years/aspiration/T&Ts.
Iktomi ages to adult.
Not bad, but still kind of a weird look.
"Sorry about my face!"
Next up is Boris. He still has some of Clarence's features, but you can see Deb in there too. He came out pretty good, though I'd hate to play such a nasty sim.
But he doesn't look evil, does he! He looks like sleepy-eyed Joel Hodgson.
Robinson is ready to go be a productive member of society! I just realized, that makes him the white sheep of this family, doesn't it?
Robbie has a slightly lumpier nose, I think, but he still has a sweet look, like his brother. I suspect he has more of Deb's features than Clarence's.
Aging Anansi up to adult results in...
idk, I just don't like that skintone much. :/
Next, Lord Arachnos. I'm very happy with him. Just look at him!
Matt and Deb turned out a stunning kid, imo. Good features and profile.
Also, I think that hair goes great with him. (except for that severe part)
"Yes... yes, this is my chance to take up my namesake's mantle, and wreak terror on Paragon City and the Rogue Isles..."
At this point I just had to get him some red and black armor, but I couldn't find a helmet.
I know, it's hard to see, but it looked more dramatic at night...
Here's a daylight pic.
Even his thumbnail looks haughty and commanding!
I made him Money just so he could aim for that Criminal Mastermind ltw, of course.
"This armor looks cool, but it sure isn't warm. I must find a suitable lair so I don't freeze to death in wintertime."
Oh, and of course he got a cape. Man, he's going to look so dramatic and cool and stuff.
"Ah, Boris, my tormentor... you'll be the first to die."
Lastly, the kid who had no real chance to ever show personality, Ungoliant. It's hardly her fault. Anyway, here's her aspiration/T&T but I skipped the growing-up pictures because we all really just want to see what she looks like as an adult, right?
She has Deb's overall structure but I think she has Trent's narrowed eyes. I went for a sort of Morticia Addams look for her.
And there we are! If you want any of these kids or Deb or some of the other sims, let me know. And thanks for reading! :D
