PostSubject: lionpaws' New RtR [week5]   Thu May 17, 2012 5:25 am

Here I go again, new attampt:

Craig Sheraton


„Hi!
My name is Craig … Sheraton. Craig Sheraton that is. Never mind my last name, it’s a joke!
I’ve heard of this TV show called …???“
“Rags to Riches” (Voice of the director)

“Right, Rags to Riches.
So yeah, that’s why I’m here: MONEY!”

(Simology:
Male; young adult; Sagittarius
Insane – Workaholic – Flirty – Excitable – Eccentric
Classical –Fish’n’Chips - Green)




“You will be following me around, watch my every whimp? – I won’t judge you, not really. A man/woman got to do what a man/woman has to.”

~~~

“Why expose myself like this?
Well, ya see this fancy place? It’s River Moss library. I wouldn’t be allowed in here if it wasn’t for the show.
In this town I’m shunned. Accused of killing my abusive father – no proof has been brought up against me so far.
I grew up on a junkyard, the old man ‘tended’. He made just enough money to serve his need of drugs and alcohol …. But that’s the past.
So far I’ve learned nothing but to survive, Which doesn’t count much with the townsfolk of River Moss though.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I want out of here, which the show gives me the chance to do.
They pay for the move to another place for a fresh start and I get to pick from three different places.

Riverview – same sort of people as here – scratch that option!
Appaloosia Plains – horses, cattle, cleaning out stables; eww! I’ve had enough of smelly – Not my choice!
Starlight Shores – now that sounds more like it! That’s where the money is, the pretty people and … My Golden Future!”

See you there !

I can't wait to see this one. I like this challenge and someday hope to take it up. But I don't want to have to add a new world like most seem to do.

Thank you all for your interest Smile


See what happened in WEEK1:



"Wait a Minute!
"A sleeping bag? that's all?"

I guess Craig should have read the contract before signing it.
Oh, is he even able to read? - I hope he picked up the meaning of letters somewhere while growing up.


Day1


I was surprised to see him rumage through his trash can right after he arrived.
He has neither the mooch nor the kleptomanic trait.
Day went by with exploring the close neighborhood, he discovered the park with the showstage. There he picked some fruit to fill his stomach. Then went on to the beach, found some more vegetables and fruit, and slept in the sand.


Day2


During the day, while collecting more fruit, he watched some guy fish with a fishing rod.
I didn't pay much attention to his interest then. But come night, magically a fishing rod appeared in Craigs hand Suspect
My lips are sealed, there's whole TV-team watching him - not my responibility!


Day3


After selling some fruit and fish at the local market, Craig invited himself to share these lovley girls' picnic.
With his flirty remarks he made them think they invited him.


Day4


Most of the money he had gotten from selling his fruits, he spent right away next door at the music shop and bought this guitar.
You can't even play, dude! Won't impress the girls much!
Only $145 left.


Day5


Craig uses the opportunity to sneak food from the abandoned picnic baskets in the park.
The other night he was fascinated by a girl, who was debating with two guys about eating habits and nutrition. He had no idea one could know all that stuff, and even less what you needed to know it for.
He was lucky when the ants would leave him enough food!
VVV



Day6


Slept in. Then went collecting more fruit and fishing after dark.

Day7


This picture I took some day during the week.
I didn't know the reprowoman would come for a bill of $1!
She didn't find anything and compensated by kicking the trash can.

- - -

status quo:

funds: $2799
networth: $????

skills:
fishing 5

I get so busy with other things that it is great when someone points something out that should not be missed as such a fun element in the game.

Smile

It is good to have all the different eyes on the game here to find all the cool things.

Surprised
so much traffic in this thread!
hugs to all of you.

Sorry for being absent so much; but my summer job eats up a lot of my spare time.


When I first noticed the ants, I thought it was a grafic error. But when I zoomed in I had to laugh. Way back when I was little I saw a Disney movie, I think it was Donald Duck having a picnic when the ants carried away all his food ... I instantly was reminded of that.

And now lets see what Craig was up to in his second week:


Week 2

Day1

Collecting fruit in Starlight shores is fastedious. The plants are scattered over the entire town.
'Dead tired' Craig spent a spooky night at the graveyard.


Day2

"Things have to change. - Maybe I could move in with someone ..."
Yeah, have someone pay his bills, thats what our boy dreams of!


Day3

Well? I don't know if this lady is the best choice. All food burned or beyond consumable.
Apparently Craig didn't mind. He talked the girl into letting him stay on her driveway.

(I didn't even know this was possible)


Day4

Craig was kicked from the private ground early in the morning.
He checked on his own lot and was delighted to see the garden he had started growing, and bought a sprinkler.

His LTW is to create monsters - he might as well start to work on his inveting skills.
There is a workbench in the fire department ...
Isn't it a little late to go there?
"Nope, I could use the facility undiscovered ..."
I bet you want to! No using the beds! I warn you; I might charge you for it. You know I can cheat too!


Day5

After a night in the fire department's courtyard Craig went back to Kerry. Attending her party he evidently got her drunk and slipped into bed beside her Surprised

He was kicked out soon afterwards and asked not to show up again.


Day6

Lost a friend - but realized he had to get his own place.
A humble lilttle shack - not much but a place to shower, pee and sleep.

Don't complain! It's your very own four walls; more than you had ever!


Day7

Ahh - the ladies!
Craig can be quite charming, if he wants to ... Whistle

Thanks ladies, I'm happy you enjoy Craig's story.

I started out limiting myself to a single picture a day. But I can't help myself, I love taking pictures of Sims in action. So please bear with me overruling my initial resolve.

Before I leave for a short-trip across the county (family festivities) let me tell you about Craig's third week in Starlight Shores.


WEEK 3


Day1

"Wake up!" The camera man's voice tore Craig from his dreams.
Our poor boy, suffering from constant sleep deficit, jumped right up half asleep.
"We have a surprise for you!" the director's voice. "People enjoy your story so much, they voted for an audience award. And here it is." The man handed Craig a voucher.
Discount Diner (lifetime reward)
"This allows you to eat in a bistro for free, service and taxes included."


Day2

Craig chose the Flying V's Coffeehouse for his regular meal supply.
Oh! ... somebody had told him to work on his sweet talk ...
Charisma isn’t his strong, so he tried on befriending a girl, Lela Whitfield, with his soft voice through the phone. (It worked too!)

Spurred by his success he decided to get into shape before he asked her on a date.

Jogging home he almost got run over by a car.


Day3

The day was spent mainly in front the store. The owner wouldn't let Craig in, although other people walked in and out at will.
"The fruit isn't getting any better in my inventory!" he growled.

Craig wouldn't give up that easily and camped at the door of the stubborn shop owner.

[I researched the issue of the grocery shop stopping to work. The problem is EA and has to do with seeds in the inventory. When I removed them -tadahh!- the shop worked again.]


Day4

Relieved of the produce in his inventory, Craig hit the park, caught some fish and spent the rest of the day planting and tending his small garden. He grows some high quality tomato (outstanding).

To tired again to move, he slept at the roots of his plants ... It turned out to be a "wet" night.


Day5

After that experience Craig got himself a bed.
Wait a minute, a double bed? ...


Day6

OHHH ... now I see! You were projecting...
Don't you think you overestimate your charm a little?
"Shut up, I have a moment here!"

"May I meet you again ... on a steady basis?"
"I'd love it if you did. ... Only, my family is rich ... I don't think they would approve ... we have to keep it a secret!"
"Of course! I won't tell!"
Liar! - you have an entire TV team and half a nation watching!
Grumbles: "Never said anything about showing!" - sticks out tongue towards hidden TV team.


Day7
Love again proved to be the best stimulation to push oneself:
For real Craig picked up pace with inventing.

Did you know it is all about throwing some scrap and then use the tools?

But mastry is earned with a lot of pain:





status quo

funds: $186
networth: $6714

skills:
inventing 5
athletic 1
fishing 5
gardening 5
handiness 1


There has been done some construction on the shack, but not enough to make it count as a home for this challenge.

Enjoy - and see you soon Celebrate

Hope he does not set himself on fire .... in the fire station! Laughing

I think the way they will sleep anywhere with them is so funny too. In my legacy family in a 5 bedroom house one of the teens would sleep about anywhere except in the bedrooms. Usually right in the center of the downstairs hallway. Rolling Eyes

And somewhere I have a cute pic of 2 of the teen girls, one sleeping in the bunkbed, and the other on the floor right next to it in a bag, instead of using the other bunk.

Silly Sims!
