Okay, so I realize this might seem like a silly feature to some of you, but I’ve been trying to come up with a way to incorporate more of the games I like into my blog, and a little series about the life of my Sim seemed like a good idea! It may be a bit juvenile, but sitting in the sun on a quiet afternoon imagining characters and their lives is still one of my favorite pass times, lol. That’s what I love about the Sims, creating a character and then living the story of their life! Hopefully even for those of you who don’t like the Sims, you’ll enjoy my Sim’s life story!
Laura Simington had but one goal in life, escaping Riverview! It’s not that there was anything necessarily wrong with the small, quiet community, but it just seemed too small at times. Everyone knew everyone, from the Goths to the Landgraabs, and the Sims of Riverview sure did like to gossip. Having no parents and growing up in an orphanage left Laura with no real ties to Riverview, so as soon as she’d saved up enough simoleans working part-time as a Stylist, Laura would take off for weeks at a time to explore the Pyramids of Al Simhara or to experience the lifestyle of Shang Simla. As she spent more time away she began to realize that exploration truly seemed to be her life’s calling!
As Laura became more familiar with Al Simha, she began to hear rumors from the locals about the legendary Pangu’s axe. There had been a few occasions when Laura truly had been caught between a giant rock and a hard place during her tomb exploration, and the axe was said to be able to smash giant boulders to smithereens. Laura always had been able to make friends quickly, and by using her charms she was able to find out that the axe was somewhere in Shang Simla!
Laura had been to Shang Simla in the past, but had never known about the axe! She’d spent her days drinking tea and learning Martial Arts, a skill she’d been perfecting at home since her last visit. While on her quest to find Pangu’s Axe, her Martial Arts training paid off, as she was forced to spar with a local before he’d give her any information. Once she’d proven herself worthy, he revealed that the axe was hidden in the Temple of Heaven.
Laura stocked up on provisions and headed to the temple right away. She had grown accustom to sleeping alone in tombs that had been sealed for centuries, so when she began to feel sleepy after her first day in the huge catacombs beneath the temple, she was prepared with a tent and bedroll! She did not sleep well that first night however, and vowed to purchase a higher quality tent if she made it out of the tomb alive!
Though Laura was caught by many traps throughout the temple, she was always prepared to extinguish herself with her trusty Shower in a Can! She found many hidden doors and switches, and swam through many underwater tunnels but finally, after almost 3 days beneath the Temple of Heaven, Laura discovered Pangu’s Axe! Pink bolts of energy flashed through it as she swung the mighty weapon, destroying a boulder like it was a house of cards! Laura knew she’d found a mighty relic indeed!
Laura escaped the Temple of Heaven with little difficulty, and headed straight to the local market where she purchased herself the Sultan’s Tabernacle, a truly lavish and expensive tent. After reporting in that she’d found the legendary Pangu’s Axe, and using it to fetch a relic for a local from the Hot Springs, Laura headed back to Riverview for some serious R&R. She’d made so much simoleans selling the relics she’d discovered in her adventures that she was able to purchase a nice lot right on the water, and build herself a very respectable home! Once the construction was complete, she began to wonder if perhaps settling in Riverview wasn’t so horrible.
