RIP- My Computer


So my computer finally decided to completely stop running any games and now it’s shutting on and off randomly when I try to use it at all.  I tried my best to at least get through part 2 of Quest before it died but it just didn’t happen.

As you all know I have some big bills to pay before I can think about getting a new one so my stories will have to stop as of now.  I’ll be trying to work with Kethrydrake and Nay83 (I’ve sent them both emails) so that they can go forward in their own stories with affected characters.

I seriously and mad that this stupid hunk of junk couldn’t hold it together for at least another month so I could finish Part 2 of Quest for Immortality.  I hate leaving something hanging like this.

Hello Everyone:

Here’s an update for all of you kind enough to follow my blog.  Now that I’ve had enough time to sit down and assess how much time I’ll have this week I am able to give you an update on the only story I have running currently Quest for Immortality.

The thing that continues to effective the amount of writing/playing time I have right now is my mom and her recent surgery.  We have physical therapy to set up and one more follow coming up this week.  I also have a dentist appointment for myself as well this week.  For this reason I won’t really have time to finish what I’ve started until after Wednesday.  I had just enough time to write the next chapter over the weekend but I haven’t had the time to do the pictures yet.  I will have it up by the end of this week and I hope to have another one also.

Thanks for your patience and kind words for my mom!

Quest For Immortality: Chapter 38


Hi everyone.  So with my mom’s surgery and my computer deciding it wants to get a few steps closer to actually dying I’ve been busy.  Seeing as how this chapter was mostly complete and I had already taken some of the pictures plus I’ve been playing with some of the graphic resolution settings the quality of the images will vary greatly.  I hope to get the sims looking a little less pudding-faced by playing with them a little more.  The good news is that by lowering them I can play for longer than 10 minutes without my computer crashing even if my pictures won’t be as pretty.

Starting with this chapter the largest part of the chapters will be written in Liam’s Pov in the style of his journal entries (except for other character’s interlude’s ie the next post which will be the last of Set’s).

I would like to thank Kethrydrake for taking pictures of Liam’s scene with Rommich which I used in this chapter.

Warning:  There is some nudity involving adult situations but, as always, I use clever angles to hide the naughty bits.

Obsession Central

When I left you with Liam last time he was a little thrown off-balance with a couple of visitors.  Though he already has Laella and Francisa in a holding pattern waiting to join the ranks of his baby mammas he added yet another to his waiting list.

TS3W 2013-10-13 17-29-59-45

As you can see, Liam watchers, though he balked at the idea of Levi joining the household, being reluctant to add to the ranks of young toddlers and infants to care for now and in the near future, she managed to convince him of the benefits of having her around.

TS3W 2013-10-25 21-35-22-04

This witch is cunning enough to have realized that at fastest path to getting into Liam’s good graces was finding her way into Liam’s bed.

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-13-35-41

To his credit though he put her right to work helping with the babies as well, which she didn’t seem to mind.

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-14-57-11

“Would you like some help there, Honey?”

She seemed disposed to want to foster harmony among the rivalrous females.

“Should I tell her she can help by leaving your daddy alone?”

“No!”

“The kid’s right.  I say share and share alike.  I’m not that bad if you give me a chance, Erica.  I hate to have a pretty girl like you upset with me.”

“Share good!”

“What do you know you stupid Kid!   Go to sleep.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-32-45-80

“You should listen to the kid.  It’s like my mama always said ‘jealousy makes a pretty girl ugly’.”

“I’m not going to be happy to share Liam just because you say I’m pretty so you can stop lying.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-34-34-40

Though it seems her intentions for doing so may be just a little selfish.

“Oh I’m not lying Sweetheart.  I happen to think you’re very attractive.”

“You mean that?”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-36-55-06

“I’d be more than happy to show you how much I do.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-40-38-15

“Take your hands-off me or I’ll toss your scrawny ass out.  You think you’re all that and a bag of chips but you ain’t.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-41-12-36

“Alright then…. I’ll take that as a no…”

At least, Levi seems to not want to beat up on her rivals for Liam’s affection but instead wishes to share though I’m not so sure how well her flirtations with the other women will go over.  As if everything that’s happening isn’t enough it seems we have yet another arrival that just might complicate things even more.  In fact, with all of the trouble Seth has stirred up I wonder just how Liam is going to deal with it.

I’ll let Liam tell you in his own words.

Peggy,

I think my life is slowly sliding into Twilight Zone territory.  I remember that day when my brother showed up he’d said worse and worse things started happening to him until his house catching fire and loosing everything made him decide to quit.  I didn’t really get it then, and even when I found out about these “Gods” being involved, and I really didn’t think much of anything could happen.  I didn’t really take it seriously but now I can see it’s not going to be easy to complete this challenge.

It was bad enough with the Montigo ladies tricking me the way they did but now I have even more things being shoved onto me that I can’t stand.

TS3W 2013-10-24 21-55-43-47

You see, the other day when I was spending some time with Odeila when I heard a knock at the door.

“Rana!  Can you get that?”

TS3W 2013-10-24 21-57-20-41

Since Rana couldn’t get it I put Deily in her play pen and answered it.

68.6

It was that alien guy again.  Naturally, I wasn’t too happy to see him.

“What are you doing back here?”

I, um, I thought we could talk about our deal.”

68.2

“I’m not changing my mind about it.”

But–! Liam, please, I…I’ve never wanted something… someone so much before.  I can’t even explain it.”

I couldn’t believe that he was insisting I go through with having babies with him again.

68.3

“Look I don’t care how strongly you feel about it.  I’m not letting any more aliens do procedures on me to put a baby in me.  Being pregnant was the worst experience I’ve ever had and I don’t want to repeat it. Nothing you say will change that.  Now I’m going to ask you to leave now.”

I thought that if I sat down and ignored him, after I’d repeated my hatred of alien pregnancies, this Rommich guy would get the picture.  Instead, he suggested a far worse way for the pregnancy to work out than implanting me with an egg like the last alien did to me.

I do understand. I did not enjoy my first pregnancy either, but, Liam, it doesn’t have to be that way.  If you like, we could conceive our children naturally and I would carry the child.

Since my nose was buried in my book I guess he took that as an invitation.  The next thing I knew was his hand somehow found its way onto my knee and started up my thigh.  Of course, I sort of exploded at that creepy gesture.

68.1

“Whoa!  Hold on!  That is the last thing I want!”

“Please, Liam…”

Though I wasn’t really thinking it through at the time, it was kind of overboard behavior, even for an alien.

68.4

I didn’t really have time to think about much except to shove him away from me in disgust, because then he tried to kiss me.

“What is wrong with you?  Go away!”

TS3W 2013-10-24 22-31-58-56

“He told you to go, green boy.”

“Liam is mine and he doesn’t want you!”

I was a little relieved to see Erica and Regret burst in at that moment until I realised it was a very real possibility that a fight could erupt since they were every bit as aggressive with me as Rommich had been acting. 

TS3W 2013-10-24 22-41-40-78

“Not this again… Why is this happening to me?”

I was sure of one thing, I was really getting tired of this possessive nonsense that the Montigo ladies seemed to feel entitled to.

68.5

“I was not aware that Liam belonged to anyone.”

“I don’t belong to anyone.  I told you that earlier, ladies.  It’s none of your business who I have sex with just because you’re pregnant with my babies.”

“I do not understand. You do wish to mate with me then?”

“No, it’s just a matter of principle.”

Thankfully the alien didn’t seem to be looking for a fight since I was a little too shocked to do much but to save face over being treated like a piece of meat.  Now I know how women feel when clueless jerks won’t take no for an answer.

“Excuse me but I think you should leave while you can before you get hurt.  The little harem Liam’s collecting has been getting more aggressive with rivalries.”

It was then Levi showed up and further defused the situation but I didn’t exactly appreciate the way she did it.

“Harem?  What do you mean, Levi?   I didn’t ask for all of this attention all at once.”

“Asked for or not you’ve got it, Liam.”

She made it sound like I was encouraging, or at least enjoying, having all these people fighting over me.

TS3W 2013-10-24 22-30-39-33

“You see he just wants one of us.”

“Yes, just me.”

“In your dreams Erica.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-10-16-30

“I think I may know what’s going on.  Liam, can I speak to you right now?”

Just when I thought I’d have to tear my hair out Bast showed up.

68.7

“Look, Rommich is it?  I suggest you go until one of them gets to the point they won’t mind drawing blood.”

“I suppose I can but…”

“This isn’t the time or place.  Come on.”

I was glad at least Levi was distracting one of my tormentors while Bastet pulled me into the kitchen for a little pow-wow, though what she had to tell me didn’t make me very happy.

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-23-50-75

“I hope you have some really good advice for me Bastet.”

“I don’t have advice but I do have an explanation for the inexplicable obsessions that are settling on you.  It’s a magic spell.”

“So… it’s not just my natural charm and irresistibility?”

I have to admit I’d thought the way the Montigos were acting was a little strange, and the insane way it was all happening made me pause, but a small part of me didn’t want to believe it was all just some spell.

“Well its a spell that enhances natural attraction so the subject would have to already find you attractive for it to work on them.  You see Set is trying to make you stop by creating a group of admirer’s vying for your attention.  I think I should have a word with the rest of them, too.”

What she had to say made sense though and it doesn’t bode well for the near future.  Why?  Well, let’s just say it’s not going to be easy to get rid of the inconvenience of unwanted stalker behavior.

TS3W 2013-10-24 22-44-38-06

“I asked Liam and you here because I believe I’ve discovered the source of all of your sudden infatuations with him.  For those who don’t know me, my name is Bastet.  I realized that something supernatural must be behind it all because no one human could possibly attract so many ardent admirers at one time.  I also noticed the similarity to the spell that was on Sekhmet and so did a bit of digging.  It seems Hathor, a love and fertility goddess, mixed up 7 love potions designed to make those who ingest them to lust after Liam.  She gave them to Seth, the god of chaos, and he seems intent on using them to torment Liam.  She told me that to break it the one ensorcelled will have to bear Liam 5 children.  I think its safe to say, by your behavior, that Erica, Regret, Levi and our alien friend here all have spells on them but I have no way of knowing where the other 3 will land.”

You see, the only way for me to be sure that this, for lack of a better term, harem of mine doesn’t cause a lot of trouble is for me and Bast to keep a close eye on all of them.  She convinced me that the best way to do that is for them all to be in one place so it looks like my poor house is going to be packed to the gills until either they have 5 of my babies or we find some other way to break this spell.  This wouldn’t be so bad if the spell didn’t seem to make them all crazy, possessive or just hostile in general.

“That is the most illogical thing I have ever heard.”

Take the alien, Rommich, as an example.  He, or it (what in the Hell do you call a hermaphrodite anyway), is in denial of the situation and I really don’t like the idea of a crazy obsessed alien lurking in the shadows.  If I can convince him/it of the seriousness of the situation then I avoid an unknown attack from the outside but I think Regret and Erica just might tear Rommich limb-from-limb if given a chance.

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-07-06-37

“I see you are a skeptic but Liam told me you said you couldn’t explain your intense feelings for him.  Would it not make sense that if was a spell?”

“Any child could with a chemistry set could make a compound to make someone lust after another. Liam may be gullible enough to believe this nonsense about gods and magic, but I am not.”

Also, if he/it keeps up alternating between trying to seduce me and insulting my intelligence I just might sucker punch Rommich myself.

“Hey I am not gullible!”

“Calm yourself Liam.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-07-56-04

“I will not calm myself Bastet this guy has some nerve to barge into my house, attempt to grope me and then insult me.”

“I’m your guide and advisor, Liam, so trust me.”

That day, for the first time, I think I realized that the closer I got to my goal the harder it would be and that this Seth character was going to make sure that it wasn’t going to be easy.

“I suppose the way I feel doesn’t matter as long as I get immortality in the end.”

The thing is that I’m a pretty determined S.O.B and I’m not planning on giving up.  As far as I’m concerned the reward far out-weighs any of the shit I have to swim through to get there.

“Whether you want to believe it or not, Rommich, it is the truth.”

Once Bast took inventory the odds aren’t exactly that horrible at me making it through this onslaught.  There are only 7 people he could do this to and once we talked it through with the gang at the house I found out I didn’t mind most of them as lovers so having them eagerly hanging around isn’t a draw-back at all.  I’ve already decided that the most annoying will be the first to go and I can enjoy the benefits of the sexy ladies whose company I prefer in the mean time.   

TS3W 2013-10-24 22-59-38-12

“Yes, magic is powerful stuff.   Besides I think I know what Bast means.  I had an encounter with a strange man right after I met Liam and he did give me a potion.”

Take the first to admit to going under the spell, Levi Babur.  I’ve sampled what she has to offer as a lover and I’ve got to say I really don’t mind having her around.  Not to mention she doesn’t mind helping out with the kids.  She’ll definitely be among the last to go.

TS3W 2013-10-24 22-57-06-48

“I think we met the same guy.  I just thought he was a drug dealer.”

“So then you three definitely are under the spell.”

The next two to admit it were Erica and Regret.  At least they already are pregnant and hopefully I’ll be rid of them soon.

“Fancy drank one too.  I didn’t but he broke it and I breathed it in.”

I was upset to hear that Fancy had taken one but I suppose it means that her attempts to flirt with me aren’t just because she’s insane from being raised in the Montigo household.  It shouldn’t be too hard to hold her off until she’s of age at least.  She can’t know any of those alien mind-control tricks, at least I hope she hasn’t learned how to do any of that stuff, since she wasn’t raised by aliens.

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-00-05-35

“Don’t try to sound like a good-two-shoes Erica.  You drugged him without being under the influence of anything so that you could get pregnant.  You aren’t any better than me or Regret.”

Apparently, Erica and Regret were already insane enough to basically rape me by drugging me into senselessness on their own before taking this love potion.  I can’t say I’m surprised though.  Hopefully, I won’t have too much trouble getting them to leave while I’m waiting on Fancy.   I’m afraid I’ll have to put up with both of them until she’s through having 5 even if they’re done.  Maybe they’ll be easier to deal with once the spell wears off?  At least I hope they are.  

“So not only a gay alien but a teenaged one too?    What does Seth want; To humiliate me?”

The worst part of it, at least as far as I’m concerned, is Rommich.  I mean I don’t like the idea of having to go through some procedures and pregnancies enough to have 5 kids just so I can get rid of him but it looks like that’s just what I have to do.

“He wants you to give up your quest so that he wins and Kalliah fails.”

“What’s the big deal with this whole ‘game’ business anyway?”

“You’ll have to ask Kalliah about that.”

I may not fully understand the reasons that these gods are offering immortality through some ‘game’ but at least I’m willing to play along.

“I’m not going to stay to listen to this anymore.  Your superstitions are ridiculous.”

“Hold on, Rommich.  You aren’t going anywhere.”

The only one who doesn’t seem to understand the predicament they’re is in the alien man-lady, Rommich.

“You’ve made it clear you don’t want me here, Liam.  I am going.”

“And you’ll come back again.  If this potion acts on you anything like it’s affected the ladies you’ll be back and you won’t leave me alone.  I better take that deal you offered and just get it over with.”

“You mean you wish to mate with me?”

“No, the implanted pregnancy in exchange for the removal of the “egg”, or womb, or whatever the Hell it is.”

“I will think about it.  For now I will go back to my hotel.”

Hopefully he/she gets with the program soon since I want to get rid of him/her as fast as possible.  At least I can get him/her to reverse whatever those other aliens did to me so that they can use me as a guinea-pig whenever they want so it won’t be entirely horrible.

“Don’t worry, Sexy.   I’ll go along and make sure Rommich comes back.   I’ll help him pack.”

Levi went with him to hopefully make him understand that he’s going to stay obsessed with me until he has 5 babies through implantation.

“It’s not as bad as it seems Liam.”

“How do you figure that Bastet?”

“Your goal is to have 100 children and you have some very willing partners in these individuals.  Even if some of them aren’t exactly to your liking you can turn it to your benefit if you can put aside your petty emotions.”

“You’re right.  It’s not going to be easy or fun though.”

Anyway, there’s Erica, Regret, Fancy, Rommich and Levi that we can confirm as being enspelled.  That means we only have two more potions to worry  about that, at least as far as Bastet knows, out there unused.  That’s pretty good odds. 

“My biggest worry is that there are still two potions out there.  Hopefully those he enchants can’t be any worse than those that he already has.  He seems to target those that already have shown attraction for you so that narrows down the possibilities.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-01-48-23

“You mean any of us four.  That’s logical I suppose.”

TS3W 2013-10-27 00-09-19-70

My biggest worry is the fact that I just recently welcomed a reporter into my home but I think we’ve come to an understanding.

“Fran you cannot write any of this up.”

“Relax Liam.  If I posted or sent anything to my editor that says some gods are blackmailing you to have babies with sims you don’t like including a teen wouldn’t go over well.  They’d think I’ve gone more insane than they already think I have.  I will have to write something about your harem though.”

TS3W 2013-10-27 00-08-13-65

“I hate that word already.”

“Why Liam?  I’d think you’d love the idea of having so many women to make love to whenever you wanted.”

“Ordinarily I wouldn’t mind it but two are crazy, one is underage and another isn’t even female.”

TS3W 2013-10-24 23-01-26-02

“Well if its one of us, well not me but Fran or Laella, then it wouldn’t be so bad.  Would it?”

“So what are you suggesting Leah?  That Fran and I try to get this Seth guy’s attention?”

“Yes Ella, if you can’t stop him from using them on sims then why not make sure it’s not someone Liam totally hates.”

TS3W 2013-10-26 23-02-42-88

“Nice idea kid.  You’re not just another pretty face.  Think about looking me up when your older.”

The little-lady Leah had a pretty good idea for us to try to influence who Seth chooses to use those last two potions on.  She’s a really pretty girl so she’ll be a sexy lady when she grows up so I invited her to be a baby mamma once she does.  I think she’ll take me up on it since she seems to find me attractive.  At least I won’t have to worry about her throwing herself at me like the other teen in the house.

“Don’t make the poor girl blush.”

“Yes don’t you think that’s just a tiny bit inappropriate to say to my teenaged cousin?”

“It’s okay Ella.”

All in all it might not be that bad after all.  I’ll get me some babies and other benefits even if I have to put up with some annoying house guests for a while.

I just hope that Liam is right to take his situation as lightly as he seems to be.

Levi managed to get Rommich to return with her the next day so now all those we know about are accounted for.  Even though Liam finds his presence disturbing it will be much safer for all of his harem to be where Bast can keep an eye on them and Set can’t influence them to cause too much trouble.  Bast and Liam are trying to decide just how to influence him on using the potion on  someone of their choice but Seth is clever and I fear they must decide quickly or who knows what further mischief will occur?

 

– All of the Marines that appear in this chapter belong to Nyrakick.  Doll Marine has her own 100 BC  called Doll Marine and 100 Baby Plums and her appearance here is part of a swap.  Lark, Linden and Lauren are Doll and Liam’s kids from the first part of her swap and were born in Doll’s story.  Lauren and Leah are her nieces and submitted for the harem section in Part 2.

– Levi Babur is Mewmewmentor’s Sim created specifically for the harem.

– Regret Montigo, Erica Montigo, and Fancy Montigo appear here with Nay83’s permission.  They are her Sims and I’d like to thank her for her input on the dialogue and plot ideas for this and future chapters.  She writes hilarious stories involving all of her Montigos, including some of Liam’s children, so go to her blog to read about their adventures. 

–  Rommich Exipehl belongs to Kethrydrake and was submitted for the harem section in part 2.  I have collaborated with Kethry on all dialogue and content in this chapter involving Rommich.  Rommich has his own Baby Challenge and you can see his point of view events in this (found in Logs 68-72) and future chapters there in The Alien 100 Baby Challenge.

Well I’m back on track!

A couple of simmers reminded me that the resolution of the graphics could be set lower and it wouldn’t be so hard on my computer.  Well had set the resolution and window size scaled down I hadn’t really touched the details section.  It took a couple of days but I managed to get the game to run without it constantly crashing my computer.  It’s once again giving me a long enough window to be able to play enough to advance the game and take a few pictures.

Starting with the next post, which is half completed you will be seeing most of the chapters being filled with Liam’s journal entries as you voted.  Using that format I won’t drive myself crazy over pictures.  I hope you don’t mind the change in format and fewer pictures too much which is why I figured to let all of you decide what way you’d prefer.

The next installment of the story will be up on Monday.

A Small Update. Please Vote!


So you guys saw my last post.  I spent sometime last night deleting some programs and files I can’t use on my computer and will be seeing if Liam’s file will open at all.   The good news it that is now opening and I am able to play with it a little bit.  The bad news is that I I can’t play for more that 10 minutes without crashing.  I want to try to get it to work enough to at least get through the parts of Liam’s story that effect others stories.

I’m busy emailing those people and figuring things out.  Its my hope I can use cheats to have the kids and do enough to maybe get a couple of pictures to include in each chapter.  At this point if I do the minimum to count the kids for the challenge and get a couple of pictures I don’t mind aging them up with cheats just so I can advance.

I’ll like to get your feedback on what I’m considering doing to get through Part 2 at least mostly.  I can see the trying to take a lot of pics and staged pics probably won’t work with the frequency of the crashing.  I seriously tried to keep the same style relying a lot on pictures to tell part of the story but I think it’s mostly frustrating me at the moment so I have two options I’m thinking of doing to keep this moving along to the point I can pause the story if needed without hurting anyone else’s stories.

I’d like a vote on which way you’d like to see these update.  Below each I’ve placed an example of how something would look:

Option A: Post the Draft as Is

When writing up a post I usually put in parenthesis where and what I’d like an image to convey.  Once I see what I can take I’ll make adjustments to the text to reflect it.  Since I have written ahead I would just leave those notes in where I wanted the pictures and I’d continue doing the same so I could go back later and take pictures.  Here is a small piece of the draft for the next chapter as example:

“My biggest worry is that there are still two potions out there.  Hopefully those he enchants can’t be any worse than those that he already has.  He seems to target those that already have shown attraction for you so that narrows down the possibilities.”

(Pic of Francisa, Doll, Laella and Leah talking)

“You mean any of us four.  That’s logical I suppose.”

(Liam speaking to Fran)

“Fran you cannot write any of this up.”

“Relax Liam.  If I posted or sent anything to my editor that says some gods are blackmailing you to have babies with sims you don’t like including a teen wouldn’t go over well.  They’d think I’ve gone more insane than they already think I have.  I will have to write something about your harem though.”

“I hate that word already.”

“Why Liam?  I’d think you’d love the idea of having so many women to make love to whenever you wanted.”

“Ordinarily I wouldn’t mind it but two are crazy, one is underage and another isn’t even female.”

Option B: Change to Liam’s Journal POV

You’ve seen a few times where I’ve written thing from his pov interspersing dialogue and Kalliah’s thoughts in between.  This would mean I would the advantage here of Liam describing a little more about what happened and I don’t really need pictures that much.   I’d still us whatever pictures I got from someone else or my game when it works but I wouldn’t be so dependent on them.

Linked below is an example of a post in a style like that.  Just remember that there will be less pictures than are in the example post .

Please view this link before voting.

Vote what you would like to see below and once I talk to the two people I’ve been collaborating with I’ll update you on how I’m proceeding.

Computer Forced Haitus


Well I’m really sorry but my computer has decided not to run my sims game now.  It crashes now with any kind of game or video.  About the only thing that works now is plain old ordinary websites.

This makes it so I can’t advance my baby challenge at all.  I’ll be talking to Nay83 and Kethrydrake on how they want to handle it in terms of their stories but I can’t log into the game at all even to fake pictures of game play now.  My situation still appears to mean I won’t be able to get a new computer until next year sometime.  I have gotten a couple of bills paid off but I’m still working on the furnace bill, I still have a couple of dental bills to pay and we will still need to get new pipes so I’m still not sure when I can get the computer.

I have a bunch actually written up so I may try to post that stuff without pictures or something.  I’ll post once I talk to Nay and Kethry.

Sorry for this again.  I’ll stop in on and off to read other’s stories but it looks like I can’t do anything more now.

Hi everyone.

I thought I should update you guys on what’s going on.  My mom has her surgery last Wednesday.  As it turns out, helping my mother is basically taking up all of the extra time I normally use in between normal errands and housework.  By the end of the day I am tired so once I get my mom into bed I’m ready for sleep as well.  I still have two Doctor appointments to take my parents to this week and next week so its pretty crazy still.

As you can imagine, my story chapters are of less importance on my to do list at the moment.  The one day when I had time my computer got temperamental and kept crashing so I couldn’t get pictures.  I hope to have the next chapter and interlude of Quest for Immortality up by next week sometime.  I’m not going to guess what day yet.  I will post another update once I’m sure when the next chapters will go up.

By the end of next month I should be able to take on a little part-time work again since I can go over and borrow a computer for a couple of hours a week.  I’m hoping that gets me my new computer faster.  Things are slowly moving along but I’ll keep up with the story as I can on my temperamental computer.

I hope you all have a wonderful couple of weeks.  As always, I thank you for your continued patience.

State of the Blog 10/8/13


You’ve seen me post recently that my mom has an upcoming surgery that is keeping me busy.  Tomorrow the surgery is scheduled and I’m not expecting to have time to work on pictures for the next chapter until the end of this week.  I tried to get some on Sunday but my computer wouldn’t cooperate.  The screen kept winking out, which is something it’s never done, so I hope it’s not now going to have another problem besides the hard disk.   I’ll be attempting to get pictures again at the end of the week.

Thanks for your patience.

Seth’s Interlude # 3


Well a stupid glitch with a downloaded prop made it impossible for me to get some of the pictures I wanted.  I worked around it but it was very annoying and I don’t have a working editing program right now so I apologize that some of these pics are far away but if I got in too close the glass disappeared.

Here is Set’s third interlude from his point of view.  Its been fun writing these.

Rommich Exipehl

You humans are such a predictable creatures.  Take, for instance, your penchant to gather together in herds in establishments like bars and clubs.  They’ve had different names throughout the centuries but all had the same purpose.  You say its to have fun and socialize but from what I’ve seen its more about you getting drunk and watching your so-called friends make fools of themselves.

TS3W 2013-10-03 22-31-11-27

Oddly enough I’m at one today not because of one of you but because of another creature.  This particular creature is what your lot call an alien or extra-terrestrial.  It is of interest to me today because of It’s interest in Isis’s little pawn.  I think It will add extra chaos into his path after seeing Liam Gelman’s distaste for It’s proposition.

TS3W 2013-10-05 00-13-51-34

“Hello.  You look as if you could use another drink.”

“Thank you.”

Drinks are often seen as gestures of friendship or interest to you humans so I’ve found it an easy way to open up conversation.

“Here to observe the locals?”

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-06-00-28

“Observe?”

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-07-38-41

“Come now.  We both know you aren’t human and places such as these are excellent for collecting information on them.  Not to mention the alcohol loosens their tongues making them more prone to volunteering information.”

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-25-55-72

“You speak as if you are not human.”

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-17-46-67

“I’m not.  I’m far above their kind.  They are little more than rats running through a maze.  They spend their life scampering around under the delusion they have control of their short lives.  I’ve been observing them for centuries though so I wonder what a fresh pair of eyes like yours observe.”

“They are a more primitive species in many ways, compared to my people, but I do not find them inferior in others.”

“Every being, accept for my kin, has weaknesses.  Humanity lacks intelligence and power.  Your kind lacks imagination and its greatest weakness is in laying your beliefs at the altar of science.”

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-23-33-30

“My people have proved science can explain anything.”

“You might think it so but it blinds you to the existence of things don’t exist in your defintion of reality.”

“Reality is what it is. Ignorance of a thing is not blindness. Unwillingness to accept that one is ignorant is.  

‘He who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool, shun him. 
He who knows not and knows that he knows not is a child, teach him.’  (Ancient proverb)
 
 I am a child. I think you are a fool.”

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-28-29-08

Yes, creature drink it down in your annoyance.  Even the most logical minds can be unbalanced with the proper prompting.

“I think you’ll find the potion you just consumed might change your point of view.”

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-36-30-89

Yes this alien shall make Liam considerably uncomfortable.

TS3W 2013-10-05 01-51-32-52

As for the other possibilities, I’m choosing my targets carefully, because I am limited as to how many I can put under this spell.

TS3W 2013-10-05 02-07-09-97

Borrowed magic can’t be taken back once used and I want to be sure I choose the ones that will make most chaos for Isis’ little pet.

Seth’s Interlude # 2


Here is Seth’s second interlude.  I’d like to take a moment to thank MewmewMentor for creating such a fun character to complicate Liam’s already crazy life with.

Levi Babur

Human’s have been experimenting with magic since they first came into contact with the supernatural world.  The magics developed involve pacts with various entities.  By invoking these pacts the human witch is able to work spells.  In their arrogance they don’t acknowledge the true source of their power.

TS3W 2013-09-24 13-27-26-98

These magics have a taste and this latest human that has caught Liam’s eye exudes a particularly dark kind, a kind that might be useful.  I wonder how perceptive and malleable she would be to persuade to purposely cause strife in Gelman’s household?  This depends how dark that magic is and how deeply she is entrenched.

TS3W 2013-09-26 16-56-26-85

At last, she is on the move, and at the witching hour no less.  That cannot be a mistake she is on the move at the hour when the boundaries between the netherworld and the corporeal are the weakest.

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-01-55-56

Her entering a graveyard is an interesting sign.   Certainly there is only one reason for a witch to attend to a graveyard when obviously having no intent to mourn.

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-08-59-92

Naturally, it’s as I expected.

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-47-00-29

She is confident considering what she’s about to attempt.

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-19-45-21

“Terra animam tradere teneatur præcepero me muneris.”

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-23-34-48

As I thought she is attempting necromancy.  Reanimation of this sort is asking the soul to reenter the body and can be done in a very small window.  It’s essentially, offering a deal to the spirit and relies on the sorcerer’s own strengthen.  It’s a rather crude sort of magic which makes it dangerous for the mage.    The method Isis taught to her priests, that evoked her assistance, creates a much more controllable slave that can be called upon when needed.   I’ve never understood your fascination with zombies because they are unpredictable and they rot away after a while.  Contrast that with the mummies made thousands of years ago through Isis’ magic that adventurers still encounter in tombs to this day and you can see how pitiful your attempts are in contrast.

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-59-29-68

“Not again!”

As you can see dabbling in the dark arts can be dangerous so generally undertaken by only a few bolder and stupider Sims.  This witch seems to lack the evil streak most necromancers have in common.  Perhaps she is a thrill seeker?  The explanation might simply be a touch of insanity.

TS3W 2013-09-26 19-37-44-54

Whatever her reasons it is obvious she is not powerful enough to accomplish the feat, which is an excellent place for me to fill, and something I can use to my advantage.

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-38-27-57

“Upset that your spell didn’t work little mage?”

“Who are you, or maybe I should ask, what are you?”

Excellent she is aware enough of magics to sense my power and that means I need not waste any to draw her in.

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-37-27-97

“I don’t release such information to any but the most deserving of mortals.”

“Well, you got an ego, as well as, a sense of the supernatural about you.  If that’s all you’ll give I suppose my next question is why did you approach me?”

Though she is over-confident she knows better than to demand anything of an obviously powerful immortal.  I think she will be very useful.

“To offer a bargain, of course.”

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-31-58-67

“What’s the catch?”

She is obviously slightly more familiar with the supernatural than I first thought.  No matter, if she is as eager to raise the dead as she appears, her vanity and desire for power will override her reluctance and suspicion.

“Just that you fulfill my terms and if you do I’ll give you enough power to accomplish the mastery of necromancy.  I can grant you enough power so that you can control more than one undead slave.  I don’t really care what you do with that power because no matter the reason it creates so much beautiful chaos to unleash the dead among the living.”

“That’s quite the offer.   What are your terms?”

TS3W 2013-09-26 19-43-13-08

“Only, that you drink a potion and seek out the man you were flirting with at the festival.  I’m sure you, judging by your reaction to him, you won’t be adverse to staying with him and helping him with his challenge.”

“That sounds too easy.  There’s got to be more to it.”

“It’s enough for the time being.  Naturally, I ask that you do what I ask you to do in the future, as well.”

“That’s the trick.  If I take your deal then I bet that asking me to do something will turn out to be more of an ordering me to do something.  What if that something turns out to be something I don’t like?”

“That’s the chance you’ll have to take mage.   So do we have a deal?”

TS3W 2013-09-26 17-43-04-78

“So, I get to have my fun with “Mr. Sexy”, do one thing for you and then after that you’ll boost my power?”

She’s smarter than I originally thought.  Her making the  number of tasks I can demand of her specific is a cagey move.

“Yes.  That is the deal.”

“I’ll do it.”

“Good Luck.  Be sure you speak of our arrangement to no one in the house except for Sekhmet.”

Leaving the potion with her I left to watch from a distance.

TS3W 2013-09-26 20-01-20-37

Despite her affirmative response she is hesitant.  She isn’t gullible, unlike those I’ve chosen before, but sometimes over-confidence is a better snare and all the hunter must do is wait until the prey misguidedly steps into it.

TS3W 2013-09-26 20-02-45-40

Yes.  As I thought.  You humans are so easy to read and to influence.

TS3W 2013-09-26 20-05-40-28

She’ll be an interesting pawn to have to call on when the time is right.  Just what I shall use her for, other than giving Liam one more ardent admirer for a time, I am unsure.  I shall wait and watch.  Perhaps her reasons for wanting to raise the dead will prove an excellent agent of chaos.
