The roller isn't working? Hmmmmm... I will fix it after work.

Edit: make sure you have the latest java update on your computer. I can rewrite it in a different language if it still doesn't work... but as long as you have java 1.6 it should work. The update is here: http://www.java.com/inc/BrowserRedirect1.jsp?locale=en

That said, you should have it as a lot of programs and websites use it to run. If it still doesn't work, you can PM me to troubleshoot as I'm the creator. :)

:new: The Little Family Legacy - 1.0 - A Little Beginning (http://littlerandomlegacy.blogspot.com)

I had the idea to 'send' each heir to a new world. Their task would be to start with little, adapt to their new environment, make their new place home, and continue the legacy the best way they could. I don't know if ALL generations will have their own world but...What does everyone think of this idea?

I don't know, but if you've already had to get rid of your CC and savegames you might as well uninstall and reinstall. Make sure you uninstall it super thoroughly.
http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Uninstall
http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Install
http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Preparing_for_the_Next_Patch_Expansion
http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Patching

And when you go to patch, use this instead of the launcher, EA doesn't patch all the way on its own. I used to have these massive crashes and it turned out it was because I had Pets and the Basegame patched but Late Night was completely unpatched. http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=409829

Is it refusing to load them at all or attempting to load them but crashing?

Unrelated: We're all just going to pretend I didn't say I'd have an update up yesterday and actually said I'd have one up today. Okay? Okay.

Uninstalling is not in my picture at the moment,
I needed to get rid of old saves anyway they were just play ones and I only had like 2?

What happens is:

I load the game like normal then BOOM! click on the neighbour hood for a new game and it stays at like 0%/1%
I then have to ctrl, alt, dlt and then have to exit and then I try again and nothing! EDIT: AS IN IT HAS CRASHED BECAUSE IT COMES UP WITH A MESSAGE SAYING ITS NOT RESPONDING
I've deleted all caches, renamed the sims 3 on documents sims 3 backup to create a new on but nothing!
I'll check to see my worlds but I don't have any custom worlds but maybe something dodgy in there

It sounds like you have a bad package file. Did you recently install any new files? I downloaded a ton of hair files last week and had the same thing happen to me. I took out what I had just added and added them back in a few at a time.

Ugh! I have a problem.
So Chuck is at the top of the evil criminal career, and he has that red glow thing, the pets are going crazy about it, they get a miilion and one interactions with him that i can't cancel. It doesn't even say what the interactions are, there are just a load of pictures of Chuck at the top of the screen. The only way i get them to stop is by making them do something else, sometimes they already have a full queue because of this and it is just really annoying.
Does anybody know if there is anything i can do to stop this. I keep having to reset the pets

Ana, I've seen mods that stop pet reactions to things like TVs, maybe there is one for not reacting to criminal Sims. search for 'not pet reaction' in the mods section to see if you can find anything.
Some of the modders who do no autonomy mods, like claudiasharon, take requests, so if you can't find a mod, maybe you could ask a modder for help.

I had thought there was a mod to stop it but if there is, it's not coming up in searches for me. You might want to look for yourself. Honestly the best response might just be to have him retire as soon as the challenge will let you. That's why I hate the evil side of the crime tree.

You can retire or quit your job at any time in the challenge. You are never required to actually play your career, you are just restricted from making money by any other means than your rolled career (or opportunities or from investing in community lots). Unless you roll Perfect Careers as a goal, that is. Then, you do have the play the career to the top.

sophieridley, I'm glad you got your game working now. I'm not great at fixing games, I try all the dumb people stuff and luckily that has always worked for me. Lol.

Ana, Sorry about your pets being so annoying. I hope someone can make a mod for you if you can't find it.

UGH, I'm thinking about doing some flashbacks with my vampires when they were human. Just a few every once in awhile for key points in their lives. How does everyone think that sounds? I'm trying so hard (along with Cece) to find some knight armor for Sebastian, if I can't find it I may not be able to do any flashbacks for him. But anyways, tell me what you guys think about the flashbacks! =]

calisims
11th Feb 2012, 5:30 PM
With MC, go to settings, then CAS Settings and disable the filter for clothing. There's two sets of knight armor in AMB that are usually locked, but will appear when you disable the filter.
Also, check this thread for conversions from Sims Medieval:
http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,20137.0.html

And this blog:
http://omegassims3stuff.blogspot.com/search/label/Medieval

Flashbacks sound like a cool idea.

jessica x gore
11th Feb 2012, 5:51 PM
Melissa, you're my hero. Cece mentioned that too but when I searched for it I only saw Cavemen and Futuristic outfits. I clicked on another site and there they were. I don't particularly like the helmet for the Knight but at this point who cares? I have one!

Yeah, Through my searching I found all of those. They will come in handy!

It's totally sad that I didn't know about the outfits that came with the time machine. Lol. I only went in it once.

Oooh that does sound awesome. It would work amazingly into plots and whatnot.

It brings up the question however, would a stillborn (ghost baby) count as one of the children your heir must have? Or if you roll two and have one stillborn, would you have two more, or just one more?

Buckley
11th Feb 2012, 6:26 PM
I have decided to use Charlton Island for my new legacy. It's absolutely stunning! I swear it's the prettiest world I've ever seen in game. I never downloaded it before because it uses some CC I wasn't familiar with, but now that I have I'm so glad I did. If anyone needs a new world to explore, I highly recommend it. There is just so much detail!

Today I'm going to create a bunch of Sim families to populate it. Does anyone care if I snag their uploaded Sims for my world? Not sure who I want to use yet, but I'll give proper credit and everything with links back to your blog if you allow me to use them. :D (Also, I SWEAR I'm going to start catching up on legacies today. I haven't even attempted it yet because the task seems so daunting. SO MANY STORIES! Whose blog should I start with? ;))

I didn't look into this mod, but if 'stillborn' produces the same kind of ghost baby that your Sim can have by trying for baby with a ghost, then it counts as one of the required children and it can be the heir.

So, I'm having an issue with my makeup not showing up properly outside the CAS screen. Does anyone know why her lipstick is not fully covering her lips? The opacity is set at 100%. (Spoilered to keep this post smaller.)
http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/a466/colleen_davis/Screenshot-69.jpg
I'm wondering if it's an issue with my graphics card. It's a nvidia GeForce GTX 570, same as my last computer. I changed the settings to make the anti-aliasing application controlled, and it helped a little. Here's a picture of the improved version.
http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/a466/colleen_davis/Screenshot-71.jpg
It's still not perfect though. (Look at the upper lip especially.) I would fiddle with my graphics cards settings a bit more, but I'm not sure what I could change that would help. Any ideas? I'm thinking about posting in the help section, but I thought I'd ask here first in case y'all have some ideas.

Welcome to the challenge, charmed. :) You got quite an interesting roll for generation 1.

GigaRevival
12th Feb 2012, 6:14 PM
Blargh. I still have three episodes from the first season. But, I still share your excitement. If you're into graphic novels, I would read the series. It's pretty awesome - just sayin'.

jessica x gore
12th Feb 2012, 6:37 PM
Apparently they're doing a marathon today. You should catch up! Ooooo I bet my DVR recorded them...I might rewatch them too. =]


I don't read them, never been a fan of graphic novels/comic books. I must not have an inner geek. But my cousin read them and he said it has spoiler so that's another reason I didn't want to read them. I want to be surprised.

GigaRevival
12th Feb 2012, 6:39 PM
Hey! I'm offended by that! I'm not a geek! ;)

Yeah - they do have some spoilers. And thanks for letting me know about the marathon. There's one small problem; I'm home alone today and zombies scare the shit out of me. I'll watch it when my roommate is back in town - so I can sleep on his floor and jump at every sound. I'm such a wuss.

jessica x gore
12th Feb 2012, 6:46 PM
Lol. OH NO! I didn't meat it in a bad way!


Hahaha. See that stuff doesn't both me at all. When I watch the real life crime shows where they investigate real people getting murder, that's where I flip out. People are nuts I tell you!

GigaRevival
12th Feb 2012, 6:51 PM
Haha - no worries. I've been unintentionally called FAR worse than that. And murderers scare me too. Especially the undead kind - wait... I'm sidetracking us back to zombies here.

And no one is mioving into the world!? Help?

That's okay. Zombies are awesome! =] They would be awesome if they were real though, because it there was a Zombie Apocalypse, I'd be the first one to die probably. Lol.

Any of those work, sophie. Click it (any, or the sim as Jess pointed out) and you should see the NRaas option. You can also click on the Town Hall.

Hmmm - this *might* be something that you'll have to ask Twallan at his site. I'm not sure what other advice I can give you. Perhaps someone here will have a solution. : /

Just to be sure, your game is patched and up to date, correct? And you have the latest version of SP and whatever other mods?

Also, are you sure you have the mod installed properly? If the NRaas menu isn't popping up, it sounds like you may need to try installing it again.

@Giga- Oh no! I hope you don't get any more...

Hey, guys, despite the wonky camera and odd controls in Kingdoms of Amalur, I got sucked in. Between that and trying to finish up my ME2 playthrough before ME3 comes out next month, I'm just coming up for air now.
So, I'm very behind in reading updates, I'll try to catch up this week. I only played a little Sims the whole weekend, and most of that was making the new house for my family to move into. Not much for me to blog about, I don't know when I'll have an update.

Sophie, my world isn't technically finished. It's missing several rabbitholes, and the map is still mostly empty. Also, I used a lot of buildings from worlds by My Sim Realty, and I used a lot of Store and CC stuff, so I can't really share my world in good conscience.

Klevkin
13th Feb 2012, 1:27 PM
he folks, sorry for my lack of pressence in the forum, been missing updates as well, i'm kind of tangled up in something personal, though I will have less time to spend on simming, I will keep doing it ;P and to prove it, I got an update (short though) I'll try to get up to date with all your stories again as well!

Klevkin
13th Feb 2012, 2:28 PM
Ana, all I can find is either stories or youtube movies with that subject created with the sims. But none of them actually have debris or something like that. And if I just look for debris sims 3, all I get it french sites about sims 3 doing the inventor career :) Sorry :(

giga and melissa, why do both of you keep hinting to games I want to play and that I am not able to with my daughter around! Seriously! The list of games to play when my children go to school is becoming massive!! I can't even look at that site without entering my birthday :P I am going to see if I can get a hold of ME2 now though :) just for those moments I might be able to play hehe :P

calisims
13th Feb 2012, 2:56 PM
Sophie, just as a heads up, MTS doesn't allow any discussion of or posts that approve of getting Sim things for free that are supposed to be paid for. I don't know how often the moderators check up on challenge forums, but you might want to edit your post. And not mention those kind of things in the MTS forums in the future.

Mass Effect is an awesome series, Klev. You should be able to get a copy of ME2 pretty cheap now, with ME3 around the corner.
My husband finished his final play through yesterday. I'm lagging behind a bit, and it's not helping that KoA is now sucking up my free time. But I'm also counting the days until ME3 hits. Because it will suck if Scott gets to play it while I'm still finishing up my final ME2 run, lol.

Klevkin
13th Feb 2012, 3:03 PM
ROfl, I can imagine how that would suck :D so, is it wise to start of with ME2 or do you advise starting with ME all together :) to get the full story?? I'm not sure if there is a full story to it ;) I still need to finish DA as well :S ugh...all those games :D so addicting!

GigaRevival
13th Feb 2012, 3:09 PM
If you start with ME2, you can buy the comic (5 dollars or so) to make all the important decisions from the first game - since that stuff carries over (sort of). I would suggest starting from the beginning, but I'm a bit biased.

Klevkin
13th Feb 2012, 3:35 PM
oh god, a comic? I doubt we have all of that over here...if so, i'm a complete idiot as to knowing where to get it from! I'll see if Ican get the base game :) biased or not :D I love entire stories, I even looked into getting the elder scrolls from before Morrowind :)

calisims
13th Feb 2012, 3:55 PM
Yeah, I would also suggest starting from ME1 for the whole story. Because it really is one whole story divided into three parts.
The comic *I think* is an online DLC, not a physical paper book (though ME has those, and novels, too. But they aren't necessary to the game.)

GigaRevival
13th Feb 2012, 4:06 PM
4.4.1-- http://harrislegacy.blogspot.com/2012/02/441-ellis-revisited.html

The comic is a DLC as Melissa pointed out. ; ) I still say start from the beginning though - if you can possibly swing it.

I'm thinking of giving the Legacy challenge another go, I loved it the first time around. But, Legacies tend to screw the game up for me. -knocks on wood-
All my legacies have died due to weird errors, and when you have all the EPs you kind of dont want to reinstall which leaves me not playing the sims for a long time.

But I'm back and im looking through the rules again. the urge, cant withstaaaaand it.... -is sucked in-

So many updates to read. I'm sorry I haven't had an update in a few days. I was on a schedule but Valentine's Day has messed it up. I'm in charge of my daughter's class party (WHY did I sign up for this crap?) so I haven't had time to play! But I will have an update sometimes this week. =]

sophier, Okay. After I commented on your legacy, I was like....err wait a minute these names do not sound familiar. Then I saw it was posted in September and knew I was at the wrong one. I deleted the comment so I wouldn't look stupid. -_-

GIga, missed your response! Must have posted the same time! Yes, I agree, vampires can totally phase through walls *nods enthousiastically* ..... wait...ellis, vampires?? 0_o what have I missed?? Oh, I think a few chapters :D must go and read up!

She's an extended descendant of Lord Vincent, remembah? It's explained again in a more recent (http://harrislegacy.blogspot.com/2012/02/43-adamaris-uther.html) chapter, written to jog everyone's memory (even my own - because I keep forgetting that I have a vampire sub-plot. :jest: ).

And thanks, Klev. Haha - I needed reassurance and you have provided. Vampires can totally phase through walls - it's now in the canon for my story (sort of). And congratulations on your 50th chapter. You've hit a milestone!

On an unrelated note: Happy Valentine's Day!! I'll be spending it with my cat - because that's what awesome people do when their friends are all busy. I'm sure Wookie appreciates the plethora of annoying baby talk and awkward staring contests I'm doing right now. :|

Repeatedly, it's just lousy site design. I even logged in from a different computer on a different IP. Must have just caught the official site at a bad time...again.

Exhibit B: turns out the items DID download and install, despite the fact that they don't show up in the Launcher, or on the Installed tab, or in my downloads folder...they're ingame, even though every single folder/subfolder/tab/etc EA has says they don't exist.

So yaaay, I got my grill. But if I ever want to uninstall it, I'm screwed. :D

I had that same EA TS3 error when I tried to access my account. When it began to work, I purchased SimPoints... Here is where it gets frustrating. Paypal handed over the money (confirmed it with online banking) but EA never delivered. :( When paypal automatically redirected me back to the TS3 site it gave an error message saying that I cancelled the paypal transaction and would I like to try again. Ugh! Sent in a Paypal dispute report. Perhaps EA will get it resolved soon.

Warning to all, if you plan on getting any SimPoints tonight... wait. Major troubles that a lot of people are having. Wish I checked the store tech thread before my 'attempted' purchase. *sigh*

Hey, Melissa. Did you watch the Lunar Lakes live chat video thing today? I just started watching it, and the first family they talk about is the Landgraab family. And I quote:

"Christina Landgraab wanted the perfect family, so she made clones of herself."

I lol'ed. It reminded me so much of your legacy and Cecelia and Harris. Although your story line was 1000 times better, obviously. :)

I'm very practical minded, and some of their "fiction" just seems off. Like they brought wild horses and raccoons and deer on their spaceship when they landed on this planet? And all the lakes are full of fish that you'd find back in Sunset Valley? Also, there's the whole gravity issue. And what about if you wanted to introduce new people to the world? According to their story, the spaceship broke down so they can't get back to the real planet, then how do new people get to Lunar Lakes? Plus, I just don't buy into the idea that they were able to colonize a foreign planet with cars and buildings and swimming pools with only the supplies they brought with them.

...Oh, and what about gardening? If tomatoes and apple trees are able grow in this planet's soil and climate, why doesn't it look just like Sunset Valley? Maybe I'm simply not able to extend my imagination that far, but it seems poorly planned, like those sci-fi movies where the spaceship explodes in outerspace and makes a loud boom. Overlooked details bother me.

I didn't see the lunar lakes show thing, that's hilarious about the Landgraab clones.
But reading about how poorly planned this world is, in terms of how space like can it be when it has all the regular stuff from the base game, it sounds like a bad MST3K move. "If you're wondering how he eats and breathes, and other science facts, then repeat to yourself 'it's just a show, I should really just relax'"

Melissa, what the hell did you have me click on. O_O What is this, I don't even...

That's the opening theme song for an old TV show called Mystery Science Theater 3000.
The whole show was basically this guy Joel and his two robots making snarky comments over really bad movies. They came up with this silly premise of how this guy got sent into space by his evil boss, a mad scientist type, who forces him to watch crappy movies so he can study his reaction to them. Joel deals with this 'torture' by making fun of the movies.
It was the funniest thing ever.
Here's a sample:

jessica x gore
15th Feb 2012, 4:31 PM
Melissa, Lol. When I watched the other video, I was like...:wtf: I'm scared to click on that one.


Also, I think I just screwed my game up guys. Ugh...I was adding Paris and Teddy from Cece's legacy to my neighborhood. (Because they are going to fall in love and have a million babies) Well, I switched to their household because Teddy wasn't a vampire in CAS. So I changed him over with MC and when I went back to switch households I clicked on the Burkhart's apartment and it accepted it. Then...nothing. I'm stuck on the map screen. There are no icons, no panels, no anything. Just the map view and I'm able to move around but that's it. I googled this problem and so far I've found a lot of people with the same issue but I haven't read any solutions on how to fix it.

EDIT: I fixed it! I went to switch to another household (Vlad) and it let me. So then I tried switching back to the Burkharts but it still wouldn't let me. SO after that I got them to move in with Vlad (I bet Amelia just LOVED that. Lol.) by having him visit which he couldn't. There was no icon on their building but he could use the call box. So he called Amelia down and I couldn't interact with her. So I reset the lot and they all came down and I added them to active family. Then I moved them BACK into their apartment via the phone. Note to self: NEVER again switch households.

CyyKosis
15th Feb 2012, 6:13 PM
That's weird... did you let time pass while in Teddy's household? Maybe they were in the process of moving... You can also use MC to change them to a vamp without switching households in the future if you can rectify your save.

jessica x gore
15th Feb 2012, 6:17 PM
Not more than an hour. I knew I could use MC to do it if Emmalina just went over and visited but I don't know why I didn't do that. I guess I wasn't thinking. But I edited my previous post and finally got it sorted out. Whew!

ReyaD
15th Feb 2012, 6:18 PM
I agree with Cyyk, sounds like one of the families was in the process of moving or doing something similar when you tried to move. It tends to bork the game a bit. Glad you managed to fix it though. That kind of glitch would have terrified me! O_O

jessica x gore
15th Feb 2012, 6:35 PM
Oh Cece this was my face when changing the households didn't work the first time: http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m481/jrock727/GIFS%20and%20MEMES/What-have-I-done_ed483b7a88bd5c44ee33ead26655d7e0-1-1-1.jpg

jessica x gore
15th Feb 2012, 8:52 PM
Map tags? I'm assuming you mean besides the building tags? Yeah, I don't know everything MC can do. Mostly I just click on stuff and hope it doesn't ruin my game. (Which I will no longer be doing for fear of losing my legacy.) I need to reread MC information again to refresh my memory instead of blinding clicking on things.

EDIT: sophieridley, my story keeps me very attached to my family. I've NEVER made up stories for my Sims, so when I got tired of playing them I didn't feel bad about deleting the save file. However now, I've really invested in them. In my head I've got this whole world created and what they're going through and I REALLY want to continue on with it. I also found out that I really enjoy writing from this challenge too and I've been approving, or at least I think so. My current legacy is a 10 times better than my first attempt. (Which ended thanks to glitches.)

EDIT: ^^That was in response to Sophie, not you Alma. It sounds like you're going through a rough patch, *hugs*, we're all here for you if you need to talk :)

@Jessica, if you have Twallan's SP and the "Extra" module installed, you can turn on map tags that will highlight every sim in your neighborhood. It's kind of nifty since you can see what they're doing or click on them easier. It helps with stuck birthdays and situations like that since it makes them super easy to find. It does make the map view more cluttered though. Here's a picture of what it looks like:
http://media.photobucket.com/image/recent/Shimrod101/MoreMapTags.jpg

jessica x gore
15th Feb 2012, 9:22 PM
Sophie: Ahh, yeah that could be hard to manage everything but you could still give it a try. I'm sure several people here would be willing to give you advice and critique your story. Oh and don't feel bad, I'm 24 and I probably have grammar errors all over the place in my legacy.

Second names? You mean like...last names? I actually got my legacy last name off of a TV show. Lol. The main character's last name is Burkhart...although they spell it Burkhardt. I dunno why..apparently the D is silent. But anyways, you could also google surnames. I've got a list of surnames (first names and pet names too) to grab when I'm in CAS.

http://names.mongabay.com/data/1000.html Here are the most common surnames in the US.


EDIT: Maddie, thank you! But holy crap! I'd be so lost. I have trouble finding the buildings sometimes. Especially the Science facility. I'm forever looking for that building. I might still give it a try. Especially when I need to visit someone and they aren't home. With this I can easily find them. =]

About Map Tags: You can tell SP which ones to display. For me, it only shows friends, romances, blood relatives living in other households, and enemies. Go to General Options > Lots, click show map tags, and highlight the ones you want, and then go to General Options > Sims, and do the same thing. Not sure why you have to set it in two different places, but you do.

Additionally, Awesome Mod has a tagging system, but with it you have to manually tell it "Tag this sim". With me, I have both AM and SP, and while apparently that can clash (the map tags part, not the mods themselves) I've never had a problem with it. I just find AM easier to use to tag specific sims, as opposed to by category. Makes it easier for me to keep track of the Wild Horse herd, etc.

Damn it, I still owe a new chapter, don't I? *sighs*

Good to see I started a Hammond Island trend :) It's a marvelous little town. I added the Science Facility, a Junkyard and some other things that I'll check up on. Also lots. Lots and lots of lots added since there are so few, but that's the reason I downloaded it. My computer just stopped being able to handle the larger neighborhoods :/

It's so TINY AND ADORABLE AND OMFG SO CUTE. I don't think I'll get any real playing done in it today. It seems to be very strongly modern architecture, and I'm more of a quaint little cottage person, so I'll wind up stripping out a lot of lots and saving them to use elsewhere, and replacing them with mine. Lots of building in my future. :|

CyyKosis
16th Feb 2012, 2:53 AM
Don't kid yourself Cece, I've given in and realized I'll never have that strength, though I admire those who do.

So, according to the rules you can make servos but they have to move out by the time the next gen takes over. Arycella is doing that opportunity chain and by the time she can make one Oriana will have taken over... Is it still okay to make it as long as it moves out right away or how would that work?

ReyaD
16th Feb 2012, 3:04 AM
I think since its in Arycella's career I would assume that its fine for her to make one and then have it move out. I'm pretty sure that happened in Calisims' Foster Enmity Legacy at least.

Anyway, I have an update.

I'll have an update later today. I need to catch up on what I missed and stare blankly at my short story a little longer and then I'll get working on it. A productive day, if I say so myself.

Melissa, I had to explain to my daughter why I laughed so hard...."You know, mommy is reading something and this person is kind of proud to have become the king of the Fae, and she'll meet the high king even later today...." "Oh! Mommy, I want to be a fae!"

I AM proud; I had to fight a really difficult boss battle to earn my title. From what I've read in the forums, it's the toughest fight in the game. So far, it's the only time I've died and had to reload in this game.

But that's so cute, your daughter wanting to be a fae!
I'm afraid when I do get back to my Sim game, this world's fae lore will spill into mine.

If you mean what I think you mean, it's just "Text" or something like that. Then when you get to the "Configure Text" window where you actually type in what you want to say, click "Edit HTML" and add the image that way, using <img src= yoururlhere>.

Hey, does it count as being distracted by temptation if I make a Nothing is Free challenge blog? Because if so, broke that promise. >_>

What is with this Nothing is Free Challenge? I'm tempted to check it out - but far too scared that I'll get sucked into it as well.

Edit: Aaaaand I caved. Curse you all (mainly Cece).

In my defense, I'm using Altin's boss for it (Erika, the blonde chick), as a teenager, to give me somewhere to explain some backstory I won't be able to in the main legacy. Like where the Organization came from.

So technically speaking, when I post chapters there I'm still posting new chapters for my story. Technically. >_>

I noticed someone asked if there is a new one... anywho I'd appreciate it :)

Nuh uh! If anything, I'm making it easier to update Altin's story, since I don't have to worry about explaining random details I'll cover in MPW.

Stop interfering with my extreme rationalization. *sulks*

Okay, Maddie, I changed the link. Thanks for updating the roller.
I'm sorry I didn't update the link earlier, I meant to, but...well, no excuse, really.

So, I just went ahead and did the rest of my full ten generation rolls to hammer out the rest of the storyline (I had only done gen 1 and 2 before now), and
I rolled ghosthunting FOUR TIMES. And Awesome! twice.
This is going to be exhausting.
