The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.13 – Pillow Fights, Broken Things, & Bugs

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great week. I’ve been busy getting back into streaming on Twitch so the post schedule for this week has been a little wonky. Now that I’ve got things more or less figured out, I should be more on track next week! (I hope)

In our last chapter we celebrated Ayla’s birthday. She’s now a teenager! Let’s see what happens in this episode.

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.11 – Ti’Ning The Pretty Princess

Hi everyone! What’s this? ANOTHER Retreaux Legacy chapter this week? Woah! I decided that since I am moving the Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge to Youtube that I could increase the frequency that I post the Retreaux Legacy stories here.

In our last chapter, Crono became a serial muffin burner. Almost every 5 minutes (or at least that’s what it felt like) he was making muffins in the kid oven and then forgetting about them, which caused them to burn. Let’s see what sort of shenanigans our intrepid family will get themselves into today!

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.10 – Burned Muffins

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a chapter in the Retreaux Legacy. The last few weeks of summer were insanely busy for me, but things have settled down now that my kids are back in school. In our last chapter, Crono aged up into a child. We were able to get him to Platinum aspiration status beforehand which means that he’s off to a great start!

Decision Regarding Retreaux & Novella Stories!

Hi everyone! I know I said that I was going to wait until Friday to make a decision about this, but after looking at the poll results and doing some thinking about it on my own, I have made a decision about whether or not I am going to move the Retreaux and Novella stories over to my Youtube channel as Let’s Plays.

I was surprised at how many people actually wanted them to remain as written stories. Out of the 48 votes, 33% of you requested that they stay stories. While this isn’t the overwhelming majority, it was enough of you to make me think that maybe I shouldn’t move them both.

So instead I thought I’d come to a compromise and hopefully make everyone happy. The Retreaux Legacy will remain a written story. I prefer Sims 2 playthroughs as written stories. I love writing them and it kind of brings back some nostalgia for the old Sims 2 BBS days. So Retreaux will NOT be moving to Youtube.

However, I DO prefer doing Let’s Plays of Sims 4 playthroughs over writing them and to be honest, the Novella story was never very popular as a written series (at least compared to the Retreaux Legacy). The Movin’ On Up Challenge also seems to do better on Youtube than it does as a written story (at least in my opinion). So the Novella story will be discontinued here and restarted as a Let’s Play series on Youtube.

From now on, I think that is how I am going to work things. All Sims 2 challenges will be written stories here on the site, and all Sims 4 challenges will be Youtube Let’s Plays. I’m currently unsure whether or not I will do any Sims 3 challenge playthroughs. The game always tends to bug out for me.

I hope this works for all of you!

Stories vs Let’s Plays – Help Me Decide!

Hi everyone! I’m getting ready to come back from my 2 week long break and get back into the swing of things here and on Youtube. I have a question for all of you that have been reading the Retreaux Legacy and the Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge, however.

I’ve been considering moving these both over to my Youtube channel as a Let’s Play, but I am not sure if I want to or if I will be making it difficult for some of you to keep up with them if they move there. If they move to Youtube, I will be picking the stories up exactly where they left off. I will not be restarting them. The chapters that have already been written will stay on the website for everyone to read if they need to catch up.

I have created a poll and would appreciate it if you all could answer whether you prefer them as written stories or Youtube Let’s Plays. I’ll keep the poll up until next Friday, September 8th.

Thanks!

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.9 – Happy Birthday Crono!

Hello everyone! This chapter is a few days later than usual (normally I post it on Tuesday) due to my working on the Random Trait Generators. Better late than never, though, right? In our last chapter, we received several visits from “Random Work Friend” and she is now quite close to Ayla. This should hopefully benefit Ayla when she becomes an adult and needs to make friends for promotions.

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.8 – Random Work Friend Likes to Visit

Ahhh… another day in the life of the Retreaux Legacy. Now that the kids are getting older, things are starting to get more interesting. Ayla is in school now and Crono is learning his toddler skills so that he’s ready for childhood and beyond. In our last chapter, things got a bit buggy in regards to Crono aging up, so hopefully we don’t encounter any more game issues in this chapter. It’s waaaay too early in the Legacy to start encountering bugs!

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.7 – Just Age Up Already!

Hello everyone! A lot happened in our previous chapter of the Retreaux Legacy. Marle was super busy playing the role of Supermom while Ti-Ning was out working to earn his next promotion. Not only that, but little Ayla aged up into a child! She was able to accomplish the “Age Up Well” want so she is now sitting comfortably in the platinum for a while.
