Okay, this round took longer than the last few rounds–some births, some deaths, some random events. A lot happened!
First we will check in with the BISHOP FAMILY!
Ambitious master gardener Arnold Bishop and his new wife Gerta attempt to climb the societal ranks and earn their fortune by expanding 3 new garden plots and being a baby boy factory. As soon as Gerta had Gabriel, they started trying again, and she had another baby boy named Max!
With two toddlers, Gerta had to call on grandma Kah to come help out with the boys so she can get some rest.
Before long, Gabriel grows into a child, and baby number 3 is on the way!
On to the SMITH FAMILY
Dinah grows into an adult!!! (She does not seem to like Bree Morgan, however.)
Perhaps it’s because Bree started dating Dinah’s younger brother Bram?
Kenna becomes a teen! There are too many teen girls in this tribe, and not enough Sims who are attracted to each other. Before long, there may be arranged marriages….
Now, given my abundance of girls, obviously what I needed was more teen girls! I created one last new family in my attempt to keep separate blood lines (especially since Tyron Whitman is having babies with everyone this round…) THE MORGAN FAMILY!
The Morgans moved to town, but the father died as soon as they moved in, and the mother decided to move on to the neighbor who stopped by to greet her and welcome her to the tribe… Tyron Whitman! Now, since Tyron Whitman almost died without descendants in the last round, he decided maybe he should reproduce in case something happens to him.
Mrs.Morgan becomes pregnant! Tyron isn’t planning to leave his camp (plus Trella Moore got really jealous when she found out about them, and came by and stole her morning newspaper?), however, so the single mother continues to be a single mother–in addition to her teen daughters, Bree and Brooke, she is pregnant with another baby. Maybe it will be a boy, so the Morgan name won’t die out….
Aaaannnd…. it’s a girl! They name the new baby girl Belinda Morgan!
Brooke is proud of herself for catching a big fish for dinner, but she doesn’t prepare it well…
She dies of food poisoning? I guess? Her mother pleads with the Grim Reaper to spare her, and he decides to give Brooke one more shot at cooking fish…
Belinda becomes a toddler! She’s a little cutie with Momma’s hair and Daddy’s eyes…not that he’s been around much since she was born….
And THE BLACK FAMILY
It’s time for Delilah to grow into an adult! The first in her household to grow into adulthood! All the of ladies in the Black family pose for a photograph.
Jayma becomes a child, and Tasha sees Jam’s ghost!!!
Then, tragedy strikes, and the Whitman camp strikes again–kidnapping Tasha and Jayma right out from under their mother’s nose!
Ursa is getting older, and now that her children have been taken away again, she’s more depressed than ever. She consults the village doctor, who tells her she doesn’t have much longer…
The WHITMAN CAMP/FAMILY!
Trella finally becomes an adult, but the happy event is overshadowed when her brother Jali dies!
Obviously that’s sad, but when her brother dies, Tyron is there for her, and without wasting any time, they decide to get married! She’s basically like his wife anyway, so they might as well make it official so he can carry on his family name with a son.
Tasha Black becomes a teenager, and what a little cutie she is! Shortly after her birthday, Tyron’s assistant shows up and argues with him, telling him that Ursa Black is nearing the end of her life, and he should be a decent person and at least give back her youngest daughter, who is her dead husband’s namesake. Tyron agrees to send Jayma back home, but insists on keeping Tasha, especially now that she’s a teen and more useful around camp. Jayma is returned home, and Ursa is overjoyed.
Tyron has a baby (Belinda) with Momma Morgan. Trella was not pleased, even though this was before her 18th birthday. Now married to Tyron, she and Tyron have a baby of their own–and it’s the boy that he wanted! They name him Jali in honor of her brother who died…
In less pleasing news, Tasha Black also ended up pregnant, and Trella can only assume it’s Tyron’s baby…
Marvin Black dies! Now all of the boys who have been abducted to Camp Whitman have died as teens…all of the girls have survived, however. RIP Marvin Black, Jali Moore, and Steve Hamilton!
Tasha also gives birth to a baby boy! Tyron decides to name him Hunter Whitman, and she’s cool with it. Not like she particularly wanted to have a kid at 15 anyway… In an uncharacteristically kind moment, Tyron allowed Tasha’s dying mother to come over and meet her first and only grandson since she might not live to see anymore of her grandkids… Although obviously not pleased with how she got her first grandchild, she is so happy to get to meet him since she was afraid she wouldn’t live to see it (Delilah seems to have no prospects).
Jali Whitman becomes a toddler!
The current Whitman clan. Now Lela Woods is the only child he has, along with Tasha and their son Hunter, and Trella and their son Jali. Now that his legacy is secured with an heir and a spare (not to mention an illegitimate daughter out there somewhere), looks like it’s time for some new recruits….
Next up, THE MORTON FAMILY
As per the usual, there is not a lot going on with Kev and Orlo Morton. Kev (the eldest with the black hair) is not attracted to anyone in town, but since he will be aging up soon and has to start a family if he wants his name to live on, he hosts a fishing party for Kenna Smith and Bree Morgan, but is not impressed with either of them.
But then his younger brother brings home Tasha Black, whom he discovered having a heat stroke while she was out gathering wood for a fire that night, and Kev actually finds himself attracted to her. He has the oddest urge to flirt with her, and when he does, he’s pleased as punch that she flirts right back! Before long, he’s asking her on a date, and she says she’d love to, but she’s not sure she can get away again… She goes on to explain that she’s a prisoner at Camp Whitman–and even has a son by Tyron Whitman, despite her young age. Instead of being scared off, as she expected, Kev promises her that he will go to Tyron Whitman and he won’t leave until he agrees to let Tasha leave if she really wants to be with him.
More because she’s excited by the prospect of freedom than Kev Morton, she eagerly agrees, assuring him she would love to come live with him if he could free her from Tyron, but she doubts he will ever let her go.
“You let me worry about him,” he says, puffing out his chest, and for the first time, Tasha is immensely pleased with her feminine wiles.
On to the WOODS FAMILY!
Mara Forrester becomes an adult, and even though the night before her birthday she shared a kiss with Barney Woods after her professed his love for her–just to make sure that it was really Michael she should be with before she ran off and married him–Mara packs her things and leaves to go marry Michael Hamilton. The Woods family is kind enough to provide her with a $2,000 dowry since she’s an orphan.
One night while Wilma is out gardening, Tyron’s assistant sneaks into her house and kidnaps Rena!!
Tasha Black accompanies Rock home one day, and he’s quite taken with her! (Unfortunately, so is elder brother Barney…)
Tasha finds both of them more attractive than Kev Morton, although when Rock asks if she wants to go out with him, when she explains her situation, he most certainly does not offer to pursue her freedom from the dastardly Tyron Whitman, leading her to think despite her flirtation with the brothers, she should probably play it safe and stick with Kev…
Barney becomes an adult! Unfortunately, with Mara and Trella being the only grown women he’s attracted to, and not wanting a teenage bride or a married woman, Barney is presently without prospects…
Selma and Pebbles grow up!
Fred and Wilma Woods with their two grown children, Barney and Pebbles!
THE HAMILTON FAMILY
Richard Hamilton becomes a teen! And Callie becomes a toddler!
The Hamilton heir Michael Hamilton finally comes of age!
Michael and his aging parents, with Leah in the background reading to Callie and younger son Richard going to bed. He’s a touch jealous of his brother, given that technically he was born on the wrong side of the blanket, so Richard feels he should be heir.
Till Hamilton with both of his sons, the heir Michael and the younger son Richard.
Michael wastes no time marrying sweetheart Mara Forrester and she becomes his wife!
Richard becomes infatuated with Tasha Black (it seems he should get in line…) but instead of just a little flirtation, Richard is a bit more aggressive and shares his first kiss with Tasha. Just as infatuated as he is, Tasha wishes she could be with Richard, but he certainly isn’t old enough or strong enough to stand up to Tyron, who she suspects is responsible for all of the teen boys who have died at his camp. Not that she wants anything to happen to Kev, but he’s older and he seemed more determined than the handsome boys who only flirt with her. Despite being more attracted to Richard, she thinks it’s wisest to stick with Kev…even if her heart says otherwise.
Mara gives birth to a son! The first Hamilton child–and heir–of the third generation, Phillip Hamilton!
What a beautiful family! Michael, Mara and baby Phillip will be leading the next generation. Hopefully their family can work their way up past the Smith family, and eventually they can be the ruling family in the future!
Lastly, THE MOORE FAMILY, who had a very bad season.
Ajani becomes a teen and Khal and Khana become children.
Sadly, everyone except Jinella has caught a sickness. The young ones seem better equipped to fight the sickness, but elderly Kaz is having a hard time recovering.
While Kaz is weakened and everyone is sick, Jinella is kidnapped!
Then, as if things aren’t bad enough, an earthquake triggers an avalanche and before they know it, half of their house has been crushed and most of their crops lost!
Kaz does not survive the avalanche, but he was able to tell Jayla about money he had hidden before he dies, so despite their losses and having to rebuild a smaller shelter, the kids still come out ahead financially.
