All Posts on Hold Until September!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that the next two weeks are going to be VERY busy for me and my family. We’ve got to start getting our kids ready for school (one of which is starting Kindergarten), have some friends visiting, and we are also going to be travelling next week (which means lots of packing and getting things ready). With this in mind, I find it unlikely that I’ll have much time to get much done in the way of website posts. So I am going to put all posts on hiatus until early September.

Once September starts I will be able to focus more on the website and I am planning posts at least 4 times a week.

See you then and hope you all have a great rest of your summer!

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.

Traits Disappearing from the Random Trait Generator

Hey everyone, just a heads up that I may have input some of the traits incorrectly yesterday when I updated the Random Trait Generator. Some traits are currently missing. I am getting that fixed right now and they will be on the generator ASAP.

Sorry about that! I don’t know how that happened!

 

UPDATE: I fixed the traits that I put into the list incorrectly, but I noticed another problem, that I didn’t see yesterday. Trait 1 and Trait 2 on the Parent’s Traits only show Child and Teen traits respectively. I don’t know how to fix this so I need to run it by the plugin’s creator. Hopefully he has a fix for it. Sorry guys. I didn’t realize the issue yesterday. Hopefully it will be fixed ASAP.

Brand New Toddler Random Trait Generator!

The Toddler Random Trait Generator has been rebuilt from the ground up thanks to the help of our awesome “Plugin Guy”. The issues that were occurring on the old generator should no longer be an issue as it’s a completely different plugin that works in a different way than the old one did.

You should no longer experience stuck traits. You might get repeats of the same trait (that is normal as there are only 8 traits and repeats will occur), but they shouldn’t be “stuck” anymore.

Updating All Trait Generators Today

Hey everyone! Just a quick post letting you know that rather than posting the Weekly Links List today, I will be working on updating and fixing (in the case of the Toddler Trait Generator) all of our Random Trait Generators today.

Our plugin creator fixed a bunch of stuff and also made a new Toddler Trait Generator for us (using a different plugin than before). Once I get everything set up, we SHOULD have no more issues with the Toddler Trait Generator continuing to get stuck (or at least I hope we won’t).

I will be making a second post later today once everyone is up and running. Fingers crossed the transition goes smoothly!

The Novella Movin’ On Up Story – Chapter 3

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates on this story last week. I didn’t have as much time as usual to get posts up as I had houseguests. I’ve missed writing about Arwen! As you can see by Arwen’s face above in our last chapter we had a few issues with apartment pests, breaking objects (due to goblins), and not checking in at the right kind of park. However we struggled through and hopefully this chapter will go a bit better for our fearless founder.
