Pleasantview Rnd 5 - NPC House - Birch and Joy Wilkie and Rose and Count Ted Mamuyac

This is the last of the Plantsim children via Leo Wilkie (Who married Coral Oldie).    If you do not remember, Leo's LTW was to marry off six.  Given his advanced age and my love of playing Sims who aren't human, Leo contributed 6 Plantsims to Pleasantview.  Then, each Plantsim child wished for true love out of the Wishing Well, gaining an instant spouse thus fulfilling Leo's LTW before he passed to the great Sim beyond.  It just so happened,  siblings Rose and Birch received NPC spouses out of the wishing well.   Luckily one of them is a supernatural Sim, giving some challenge to me for this lot.

This lot is also the last lot in Round 5.  The next play will be to finish up those still in University and get them back to the hood for round 6.

 Beginning Wishes:

Joy Wilkie - Aspiration:  Fortune.  LTW - Become A Criminal Mastermind.

All of her wishes are directed toward Birch.  Talk to him, flirt with him, dance with him, and give a back rub to him.  FIrst wish fulfilled:  Flirt with Birch.

Rose Mamuyac - Aspiration:  Popularity.  LTW - Become Captain Hero.

First wishes:  Have a baby, play with, talk to, and entertain. She is currently a Security Guard.  First wish fulfilled: Talk.  (To Joy).

Birch Wilkie - Aspiration:  Fortune.  LTW - Become Head of the SCIA

First wishes:  Earn some money, earn $100, flirt with Joy and get creativity 5.  First wish fulfilled:  Flirt with Joy. 

Count Ted Mamuyac:  Aspiration:  Pleasure.  LTW - To Become Mayor

Beginning wishes:  Make a friend, have a pillow fight, flirt with Rose, kiss Rose.  He is currently an Intern in politics.

I am very excited to play this lot.  None of these Sims are perm plat, and are far from it.  Couple this with a vampire who wants to fulfill LTW TOC with a day job, and very few hours left in the day to skill and fulfill wishes....we will see how it goes!  :)

I want to mention that the Count's backpack was been emptied in order to purchase this lovely rancher already equipped with rooftop solar panels, and various career rewards inside.  This house was in play in Prosperity Falls, and is available for download in the event  you are interested.  There is also a wishing well on the lot.  heh

Rose's husband the Count is sleeping in his coffin the garage, so Rose really had no one to help her fulfill her wishes.  Luckily she threw 'have a party' after she talked with Joy.  So party it was.  The only people she knew outside of the house was her dad Leo, and Coral.  Then commenced the party influencing wishes. The party was a roof raiser!

So alrighty then.  Rose rolled the good 'ol woohoo wish during her party.  Her husband was asleep in his coffin.  I didn't know if there was a way to woohoo in it, so I clicked on it.  The choices were 'peek at' or 'dare to peek at'.  I had no idea...learned something new about the game.  Rose chose 'peek at' and her husband popped up and scared her.  heh

The Count rolled a wish to ask Sim on date, so dating it was!   In the meantime Joy chose to get a new aspiration, taking a hit on Prosperity points, but on the other hand the hope is to get an LTW that she can fulfill.  Dice was rolled to get her new aspiration.

She now wants to max 7 skills.  Hmmmm.  Doable, I think.  :)  Plus she is still terribly in love with Birch the Fortune Sim.

Rose gets her woohoo wish fulfilled, and chimes are heard.  Thank you Risky!

Whilst Rose was playing video games, the Count swooped in and bit his love.  CRAP.  Geesh, he was fast.

Now I have a sun loving PlantSim that is a sun hating vampire.  heh  And she is pregnant to boot.  Her sunlight need immediately tanked.  What to do, what to do....  I know.  Check her wishes.

She wants to buy some Vamprocillin-D and be cured.  Alrighty then!  *ASimWen is relieved*.

In the mean while, Count Ted wished for Rose to be cured as well.  Okay, so no hearts will break over Rose being cured.

Ugh, this stuff tastes bad!

Rose bought extra doses of the Vamprocillin-D just in case Count Ted decides to do this again.  She receives a terrific boost to her aspiration.
As does Count Ted whilst he has a nice chat with Roses's brother Birch.

Of course Knowledge Sim Joy now wants to become a vampire.  Easy enough!!!

That night, Rose asks her husband Count Ted to bite Joy.

Ouch, I think Joy wants to keep this.  heh.  The good thing is, is that she doesn't work outside the house, and won't age, giving her free range to skill.

What has Birch been doing during all the Vampiric shenanigans?  Why, he has been fulfilling wishes for creativity by playing violin and looking for a job in Intelligence which finally came up on Wednesday.  Now Birch shows a wish to win a hobby plaque in Music and Dance.

Awww.  Birch wants his wife cured.  And so it will be, that night when she comes out of her coffin.   In the meantime, Birch leaves for his first day of work.

Joy drinks the Vamprocillin-D, and takes a big hit on her aspiration.  However, Birch receives a big deposit.

Birch finally makes his hobby plaque in Music and Dance early Thursday morning.  This is great for him, but it won't help him much in his Intelligence job.

Just as Birch was receiving the good news from Noele Dennis to inform him about his success in the Music and Dance arena, Count Ted decided to try to bite him.  However, Birch ignored this supernatural advance, and just shooed him away.   Heh. 

All thoughts of the biting malfunction were forgotten when a few hours later, little Sheldon was born.  (erm...forgot about my naming theme of using names from the 1800's, The Big Bang Theory was on the TiVo. Heh)

Count Ted is turned down for a neck bite again by Andrea Hogan.  Man, he just isn't as suave since he is playable.

Early Sunday morning, a monstrous summer storm hit.  Lightening struck three times and burned the breadfruit tree in the back yard twice.  The third time it struck the little tree in the front yard with flowers on it.  Geesh, have you ever seen a tree fire this bad?  Took two firemen and a vampire to put it out. 

Count Ted works hard to put out his wife.

Rose survived the fire, but all the sunshine and water was sucked right out of her body.  She faints.

The Count leaves her laying on the sidewalk waiting for the sun to rise.

Even after her sunshine half way filled she would not wake up.  Finally, Birch was able to revive her by watering her.  heh  Another thing I have never seen in this game.

After being revived, Rose and her daily dose of friends from the wishing well listen to Joy give a speech on the teleprompter the Count brought home as a career reward in Politics.  Joy continually rolls wishes to skill, which is fortunate. 

And the week is ended with Count Ted sinking back into his bed at 7:00 am Monday morning. He will be getting back up in an hour to go to his job in Politics as a State Assembly Person.


I was fearful I was going to lose Rose when the little tree in the front yard caught fire.  I was especially concerned when I saw TWO firemen show up.  The only other time I saw that happen was years ago when I was doing the 'I Love You To Death' challenge during the 'death by fire' segment.  My simmies made a heckuva fire to kill off the spouse.  

Joy:  Ending wishes:  Be saved from death, get logic 9, get charisma 8, and see a ghost.  Joy started the round as a Fortune Sim with a wish to be a Criminal Mastermind.  I wanted a Sim I could actually play, so she changed her aspiration, taking a 5 point hit in Prosperity points.  I rolled her new aspiration per Prosperity rules, and she rolled Knowledge.  My favorite type of Sim in a busy household.  Luckily she latched on to skilling.  She kept making enough aspiration points to keep everyone in  thinking caps and keeping them energized.  I really lost points on that deally though.  But it is worth it.  An easy play.

Rose:  Ending wishes:  Smustle dance, play with the modular synth, get hobby plaque in Music and Dance, and play the violin.  Rose rode the fence between music and dance wishes and friendship wishes.  Everyday she wished for friends from the wishing well to feed her Popularity aspiration.  Usually her five wishes could be fulfilled then.  She would continually roll friend type wishes until she got on the ballet barre at night under the plant light to earn body points for her job.  The she would roll Music and Dance type wishes until it was time to hit the wishing well again.  Very easy to keep happy.

Birch:  Ending wishes:  Blog about Music and Dance, smustle dance, get mechanical 9, and play the violin.  In the beginning of the week, Birch had the 'buy me buy me' syndrome.  Being that there was little money left after buying the big rancher, I was afraid he was gonna make the family go broke.  But after he got his hobby plaque in Music and Dance, he was all about wanting to do things to feed his hobby.  At one point he rolled mechanical points for his job, and I just kept it locked in, and he kept rolling it.

Count Ted:  Ending wishes:  Buy electronic entertainment, buy a bubble blower, play chess, and buy clothes.  It has been lots of fun playing Count Ted.  I don't recall the NPC vampires still going after victims after they are made playable.  But maybe so.  He has been quite easy to play as he was given the car to drive to work, which is kept in the garage along with his coffin.  So all he had to do was get out of bed and go, taking no hits on his needs.   Comes home from work, gets right back in the coffin.  When he arose at night, his needs were full and he would usually spin up 'ask sim on date' so he and Rose would have a quick date getting his 5 wishes in, in no time.  Then he spent the rest of the night skilling.

Baby Sheldon:  Sheldon should have had his birthday on Sunday, but he is stuck in the 'I don't wanna grow up' glitch.  Sims would run over (usually Birch) and pick him up with 'help with birthday' in the queue, and he would never actually age.  If it is still a problem next round, a birthday cake will be purchased to help Sheldon along with his birthday.

It was a good play.

Keep on simmin'!



  1. Wow, that was a spectacular week, made very interesting by the "Vampire shenanigans", as you call them :-D
    I've never seen two firemen appear at the same time, in spite of there having been many fires in my hood.
    Glad to know I am not the only one who gets the "I don't wanna grow up" glitch!
    The house looks nice, thank you for giving the link for downloading it.

  2. What an action packed week! Count Ted certainly got some good biting in eh?! I thought Rose made a good vampy plant sim. I had an alien/zombie/vampire/plantsim once who was quite happy. :D
    Shame Joy wanted to be turned human again but no doubt she'll max her skills soon.
    That was one heck of a fire! At least only the trees died. :)

  3. LOVED all the Vampiric action in this house. What a crazy, turn, turn back, turn, turn back type of wishes, or actions. I haven't played much with vampires...only in Breeze Point where she is highly controlled. :)
