7.15 – The first party forms

ScreenshotNo one’s POV

Two figures ran faster than a natural, and faster than most supernaturals, in a dark forest. It is a forest rarely visited at night, due to bandits and coyotes. So, in a way, these two were right where they belonged.

One of the two figures halted without any warning, almost causing a collision with his companion.

“What’s wrong? Have you lost the scent?” The companion asked.

Screenshot-2

“No, I’ve acquired a new one dear.” The man replied.

The woman instantly put her guard up, using her superior vampire senses to attempt to locate the newcomer.

Screenshot-3

“There he is.” The man replied with a satisfied smile as he found the newcomer.

“Where?”

Screenshot-4

The woman finally spotted him. “Kord. I see, you were right, he came after all.”

“My dear brother can’t stay away from me. No matter how much he tries.” The man said, a smirk plastered on his face.

Screenshot-5

It was true, and Kord was ashamed of it. His brother had killed Lilith, their sister, and then to begin a war purely for his entertainment, Velor had killed his wife, Diella. His dear beloved wife. The one who’d let him escape into a reality different from the blood thirsty truths of his family.

It was a curse. These golden-eyes were a curse and nothing else.

Screenshot-6

“Carla.” Kord said as a greeting to his niece.

“Kord you decided to join us.” Carla said, the joy apparent in her voice.

“You finally got bored of the goody-two shoes?” Velor asked.

Kord looked away resigned. He’d tried very hard to live with Zyla and her family. His niece was the nicest of the golden-eyed vampires he’d ever met. Mainly she refused to abuse of her power, it’s what kept her sane. It’s what kept her from turning into something like what his brother was.

But even if he desired to live peacefully, it was too much for him to handle. To stop hunting and to drink plasma juice, to stay cooped up in the house all the time, to do plain nothing….it was boring beyond anything he could’ve imagined. He never thought he’d miss the wars his brother maliciously plotted.

At least when Carla had started to evolve into a vampire he found something of interest. He taught her how to hunt by using her power and counted stories and stories of old vampire battles and of her father’s reign. It was when she left to go to that school that he finally realized it was impossible for him to stay any longer. And thus, he left to search for his brother on his wild chase.

Screenshot-7

“We aren’t going to feed you.” Velor clarified tapping his brother on the shoulder. “Alright, now that that’s out of the way we better keep going.”

Kord understood many things about his brother, but there was one that he could never quite comprehend. It was his brother’s absolute greed to control. To be the most feared. It’s what’s keeping him on this long chase. He’s been running after these people for years and he still seems as determined as when he first started.

Or maybe it’s his anger towards being betrayed by nearly all his close vampires. After all in a simple short while, both Kevil and Rehal betrayed with two different people no less.

Screenshot-8

“If we daddle too long Kevil gets the idea he can take a break. The foolish boy.” Velor chuckled.

But then again, with Velor who knew what the reason was? For all they knew Velor was a cat merely playing with mice to pass the time.

Intermission? Checked. Next up, Arc 3.

Well, everyone’s talking about the sims 4 lately and I feel compelled to do the same. I personally had a great first impression of the sims 4, but then I read all that stuff about it having less careers, less everything really. It’s just more varied when it comes to emotions and actions apparently!

I’m certainly not going to be getting it anytime soon though. If I do, this means bad news for this story and I love it too much to do that to it! What about you guys? Anyone getting the sims 4?

    Velor!!!!!!!!

    “These golden-eyes were a curse and nothing else.” – *hugs James*

    That last line… I love it, because really… who knows what Velor is up to? Who knows how me spawn he has roaming your universe? Who knows? He might already be really close to winning the 100 baby challenge.

    As for the Sims 4, I’m on the same page as you. I’m patient enough to wait for a couple of expansions before getting it. I want my toddlers. Can’t afford it right now anyway. Plus, just like you, I’m pretty sure getting it will endanger the Clarkes.

    I’ve seen some players post their screenshots on FB, and I haven’t really seen anything just yet that made me want to go, “Oh my! I have to have this game!” So I can wait…

      Haha! Lol! Yeah, he does have a bunch of spawns roaming the earth! Probably all naturals though…Be interesting to somehow include that in the story…But that would be just mean ruining some more sims lives.

      Yeah! I heard there would be any toddlers! It’s a shame.
      Most screenshots I’ve seen = Sims4 sucks XD

    Ah, a little look into Velor and Carla… and now Kord.
    I feel bad for Kord, but I have no idea why he keeps following his brother into drama. If I were him I’d want as far away from other Vampires as I possibly could… but mostly because I’m a romantic sap at heart and the thought of losing my other half would probably crush me. 😦
    Meanwhile, saw your note about the Sims 4. I loathe it. XD
    I’m so salty. Don’t mind me.

      Kord is …broken in so many sad ways.
      And, surprisingly for furniture (I’m so mean but that’s what I refer him to now), I have a lot to say about this vampire.
      But I don’t want to spoil so I’ll wait 😛

      SIMS 4
      I bought it in the end though, just because I’m a sims fan and I kind of wanted a sims game just for fun, because as my TS3 game is now it is unplayable for just playing! It cannot handle my scrolling and fast forwarding.

        Oh I totally bought the Sims 4 too… and I haven’t touched it since. It just… isn’t fun. I have a laundry list of reasons, but a lot of it are tied into the loading screens, closed world, and no CASt. Bah, I sound like such a moany brat about it, but I don’t understand why everyone goes gaga for it. The graphics just look… silly to me. I couldn’t imagine trying to make a serious story in it, which is sad because when they first announced the Sims 4 I had hopes of (maybe) moving my story there if it proved good enough… but then no open world? No CASt? Oh but look, sims can *feel* things.
        Yeah, and then they can feel another thing because I turned on a lamp. A LAMP.
        (Coughs). Sorry. Passionate about the subject. Not a fan of the game, that’s all.

          Even if they Sims 4 was more story friendly I wouldn’t be able to do it. I’ve put so much more energy in sims 3! And either way sims 4 is still too new for mods.
          Camera options are weird, and from what I hear you gotta jump through 300 loopholes to pose peeps?
          God just imagining not being able to use my 700 poses destroyed me.
          I could complain about sims 4 for days. As a stand alone game it’s pretty neat, but when compared to its predecessors….I’m crying.

            The creepy thing for me is the lacking of Toddlers. I use Toddlers for everything and I can’t stand the fact that babies are stuck to those bassinets!
            The Sims 3 will always have a special place in my heart… besides… our stories wouldn’t do so well on 4. They only have aliens…
            No witches… no vampires or werewolves (not even the silly looking kind). They’ve released all of 2 expansions in 2 years and like… 2 game packs. Sometimes I wish they would’ve just put a little more TLC into cleaning up the Sims 3 instead and then came back when they actually had a decent reiteration of the Sims ready to go rather than what they have given us.
            I’m right there with you about complaining for days though. I honestly wasn’t *that* upset playing the Sims 4… I just got bored after a point. You can’t leave your neighborhood freely, so you basically have to strategically plan each outing and just stare at the walls of your Sims house when they go to work.
            I see all the people playing the game and talking about what a pain it is to deal with no open world. “Oh, I can’t change their outfit because that’ll remove all the good moodlets for the people at work.”
            That’s ridiculous. (Sighs).
            Meanwhile I’m over here still looking at the Sims 3 store wondering when I’ll complete my ridiculous collection…

              Sims 4 is a mix of Sims 1 and Sims 2. Basically. That’s what it is. T_T They forgot to include sims 3. That failed masterpiece.

              Saaammmmeee
              I want to get Dragon Valley soon! I need those dragons. I always need dragons.
              I have all the expansion packs, all I’m missing is store content and stuff packs (though those are ridiculously expensive for what they offer)

                (Shuffles feet around) (coughs)
                I… I have Dragon Valley and the dragons are… meh.
                Don’t get me wrong, I love them and so does one of my heiresses… but they never get any bigger… and their actions are *super* limited. It’s difficult using them for stories as they’re… a little glitchy.
                Don’t get me wrong though, Dragon Valley is my favorite town (Quinn Flanagan is a townie from Dragon Valley, so… I’m not sure what that says about me, save for that I adore him to pieces).
                I have all EPs and SP (minus the stupid Katy Perry one – which I never wanted anyways, and the 70s 80s 90s SP)…and I own a lot of the store. The only town I’m missing right now is Roaring Heights… which I may get just so I can have *all* the towns, but the concepts don’t really appeal to me. Mostly I want to gather all the premium content or anything that adds new gameplay… and men’s clothes.
                Geebus this game lacks men’s clothing. I swear I was picking through it last night going “I have nothing for ____ to wear! Drat!” And no one ever makes good modded clothes for men (save for a very few rare pieces), so I’m always using the same stuff for them.
                Don’t even get met started on teen boys either. It’s ridiculous. They have *nothing.*

                    Countless hours for me too. Shojo has some ok stuff for guys, but I’m not really big on having actual English language on the shirts, mostly because it feels out of place compared to everything else in the game. I try to find things that fit the stuff that’s already in the game as close as I can because nothing sticks out worse than those super shiny, super stretched ball gowns I see everywhere… but for men? It’s like either skin tight or awkwardly baggy… the pants always sit at weird heights on the legs (groans) the Deisel Stuff Pack was the best thing that ever existed for men’s clothes, so if you don’t have that already, I would look into it. I use those pants for practically all my male sims…
                    Men’s hair? I’ve actually made it a point to download *every single men’s hair I’ve found that isn’t too atrocious*
                    Even if I’ll never use it… I want to have as much variety as I can and sometimes Sims surprise me… so… I just keep hoping maybe one will work out? Deliro actually rocks one of those hairs I was iffy about… unfortunately the hair is glitchy and doesn’t show up right when behind a light… but I just… angle things right and no one will know…
                    As for the Dragons? They’re cute. They’ll sit on the ground. Sleep a little. A lot of times they’ll get stuck in this rigid pose with their wings extended as they stare off into the sky all creepy like… Sims treat them like crack and run to them and pick them up all the time. They have super cheaty-moodlet helpers which I used to love but now… eh… throw ’em in the pile with the rest of the options you can use (they only do 2 needs at a time depending on the color of dragon). Oh, and they can’t perch anywhere, which bugged me to death. It’s either in the inventory, on your Sim’s shoulder or on the floor. That’s it.
                    I expected more from them… and the cowplant… and a lot of other things. I’m picky though.

                      Shojo is…ok. But it’s mostly retexturing of already existing clothes. From what I remember All About Style was a pretty neat place for clothes.
                      Ahhh yeeesss, I don’t have it but Diesel is next on my list.

                      That does sound really disappointing…weelll yes you couldn’t expect TOO much from sims content

                      I agree with that. But those clothes have been the only tolerable clothes I’ve found for my teen boy Sims off of TSR so that’s why I mentioned it. I’ve been to All About Style, granted for Victorian-based clothing at one point, I had no idea they had men’s stuff (or that it was worthwhile) so I’ll look into that! I actually just got a few store packs too – the Hippy one and a few others (mostly because I was looking for a very specific outfit… and the clothes are really nice… but they’re only for adults (rages).
                      Do they think boys jump from baby to adult in this game? Does this look like the Sims 4? Bah. Bah to them all.
                      I have so many boys in my game and while I have dozens upon dozens of things for my girls… I have so little for my boys. You’d think they’d be a big market, but nooo.

                      And it makes me unhappy because I’m spending dozens of chapters and chapters with only teens, and I had the great idea to have them change clothes with the seasons…and half of them are teen boys ;-;
                      I wish figuring out how to mesh clothes was simple.

                      I’m right there with you. I move at a fairly slow pace throughout my character’s lives and a huge portion of their development comes from their lives as teens… but… ugh there’s nothing.
                      I’m also coming up dry on clothes for women that look like men’s clothes.
                      Why is it that unless it’s a dress there’s like… no other clothing? I just… urgh. 😦
                      The worst is *specialty* boys clothes too. Gods forbid you need a teenage boy’s peasant clothing… or Victorian clothing… or any specific type of clothing…
                      I wish making CC items in general were easier…
