PostSubject: Fern in Murkland   Mon May 22, 2017 12:19 pm

I was very intrigued with this challenge so decided to try it   I redid Oasis Springs and bemoaned the loss but lucked out in finding an OS's save with most of the lots deleted but was able to add the Watering Hole back so I'm sure the other community buildings/lots will go back nicely.
After setting up Murkland, Fern was created and dropped in the allotted camp site and we set about seeing if she could survive.  Had trouble remembering all the rules so she made a few mistakes the first few weeks but we swept them under the rug.
Windows upgraded Paint to 3D and I couldn't get things figured out how to get the snapshots in the program. Mad Haven't found time to to study a tutorial on it yet.  So decided to just get on with what I got.
Fern Farmer  after the grill caught fire and burned to ashed along with the 'bathroom' ( bet you didn't know those bushes could burn ), and poor Fern caught on fire trying to put the fire out.  All from not cleaning the grill.

After cleaning up the mess and replacing the lost important items, Fern went visit around Murkland to see what was there and hopefuly meet other survivors.  She got kicked off a few lots and found out later she wasn't suppose to visit them.  Then she got busy growing she trash plants and learning skills. ( Took me about a Sim week to discover it was quicker to make a trash plant by having the Sims clean up and dropping the garbage than letting the dirty dishes turn into a pile of trash. )  
Fern took up fishing ( and liked it!) for fertilizer for she plants.

When she was moving around Murkland she found a hot springs where she could bathe.  But she had trouble staying in the springs until she was clean.  First visit it took her all day to get clean.  Someone pointed out a fun thing to do and she spent more time slipping and sliding through rushes on the property than getting clean in the hot springs.

More fishing.

She tried a yard sale after she found item to sell.  Took her awhile to get the hang of it and she did well enough to try it again after she collected more stuff to offer.


She had to travel to Granite Falls to find a hermit who was learned in Herbalism which Fern desperately needed to learn.  She couldn't find the Hermit but fished and collected some plants and bugs and ended up spending the night on a log bench.  She wasn't able to learn anything on that trip but experimented when she got home and was finally able to make a deodorant lotion to use on herself and made her feel so much better.

No one told her how expensive the trip would be so she had another yard sale and made even more money.  She had made Camper's Stew for lunch and that seemed to lure customers onto her campsite where they helped themselves to the stew but also bought items Fern was selling.

Fern finally found time to visit the Mercantile where she bought a guitar.  She taught herself to play it and enjoyed accompanying herself singing.  When she first started people ran away but as she got better they'd stay to listen and even tipped her.  

Her favorite place to go for her social was a dilapidated gym across from a beach where she liked to fish.  The old gym always had lots of people to chat with and at one end of the beach were working toilets!  A lovely change from the bushes at the gym and in her neighborhood.  There was a scare when people got a strange disease which seemed very contagious but Fern didn't catch it.  However she often had a queasy stomach after gardening and would get sick, then become dirty and have to make the deodorant lotion to get clean again.

I seem to be having one of my non lovely days.  I edited the above posts and was looking for a screenshot when photobucket ( in their infinite greedy wisdom) put up one of those darn large popups and when I Xed it out I lost internet contact which wiped out what I'd corrected and  added.  So, I'm too vexed and short of time now to finish.  Sorry And for some reason the screen is do large I can't reach the edit button at the top of challenge posts. Could just barely see the tiniest bit of edit on this post. Not sure if I did it or why the screen changed size.

Yes but there are a few more. I'd get so busy playing I'd forget to take snapshots! Should I ask where did you find them? Laughing

On to the missing pictures and their explanations.
Fern occasionally got a late night visitor. She would talk to him during the day but not at night.

Her favorite place to go for social and fun was the old gym site. One of the alien twins got sick. No one knew how to treat the disease so Fern stay away from him until he was well again.

Fern was always lighting her campfire. It made her feel better, I think. But this time she'd left her guitar too close and the fire got it. She managed to get the fire out and keep it from spreading to her tent but lost her guitar.

She moved her tent back a bit just in case.
Talking with Joseph Sirat at the old gym. Joseph is Allen's younger brother and they are both sons of Ollie Sirat and Spades Klondike who had 5 children. ( Allen has had 2 alien babies, both daughters.)

Needing funds for another trip to Granite Falls, Fern had another yard sale. Something for $1 kept selling but the only thing for that price would have been Trash fruit and that wasn't offered for sale. Have no ides what the customers were buying.

Fishing again.

Talking to her plants which were getting very high level wise by this time. She needed social and she needed to stay close so her plants would continue to level up.

Coming back from Granite Falls, poor Fern was by this time so used to bench sleeping she bypassed her tent and went for a nap on the community bench down the street.

It was her last trip to Granite Falls. She'd discovered what she needed to make the deodorant lotion in the basement of her friends' home, The Cliff Dwellers. Their plants were a mess so she offered to tend them in exchange for some parsley. She was also showing interest in their eldest son who would call her and ask her out but to places she couldn't go except for one time when it was for dinner at the Puffer Dome.
Fern entertaining a group around the campfire at the old gym, telling stories, jokes, and playing her newly purchased guitar.


Fern Farmer finally became Friend of the World. Her traits were loves the outdoors, cheerful, glutton, and gregarious. She maxed Cooking, Charisma, Gardening, Fishing, and Dancing. She reached level 7 Singing and Guitar, level 8 Herbalism, level 5 Fitness and Comedy, level 2 Video Gaming ( is that even legal?) level 1 Logic and ( I have no idea how she got this last one) Gormet Cooking, level 3 Handiness. Her funds were a little over $17,000.
She made a lot of funds breeding frogs and caught some very expensive fish ( one was over $1,000 ) which she sold.
Thank you for reading.

I'm thinking of trying the side challenge What's Left of the Gym but not for a while. Let too many things slide around here doing the original Murkland Challenge. giggle
Has anyone tried it?

Completed it Smile by FINALLY getting the required plants to Perfect. The hardest part was finding the Dragonflies for the Energizing thing. Some people had no problem but I only found a few.

Do you have your browser set to show pages at 100%
or larger?
Changing the magnification of the page could cause
viewing issues.
What is your computer Resolution setting?
My screen is at 1920 x 1080 as recommended
by my monitor/computer.
If I set it smaller everything including web pages,
my game and desktop
items are bigger but may not fit the screen.

It doesn't seem to happen anywhere but here ( that I've noticed) but then I don't get around much anymore. I will check into those things. Thank you.
