Youngdale Royal Queendom Chapter 2 Hunter's Good Luck

Slide2:

This week is the Hunter family, since we're going in the order the bachelors left the bachelor challenge.

Just use to track taxes for University.

Slide3:

Joshua: I had rather hoped I'd be able to spend my days soaking in the hot tub with the Queen, but no. I'm here on a little 3x3 lot, stuck living the peasant life. There's nothing here but my sewing machine, and the few gifts the Queen gave me. I think I'll sell those gifts. I need the money.

Slide4:

Joshua: Also, I need a job. Not that I really want to spend all my time working. I really want to be a complete slacker – a professional party guest. But I heard there was a jobs board at the Royal Court. I'll go there and see if they have any listings for a slacker, like me.

Slide5:

Joshua: Man, I couldn't stand a gig like this. I'd be bored out of my mind, and I'd feel all stiff and sore, and it probably pays peanuts. And the worst part is that you don't get to make any friends or hang out with your co-workers. It must be a lonely life.

Slide6:

Joshua: The lonely life is not for me. Besides, I'm supposed to be founding a legacy here, even if it is just a peasant legacy. I need a wife. And since Her Majesty was kind enough to provide a wishing well, I'm going to use it.

Slide7:

Joshua: Oh, wow! This wishing well is amazing! I totally found the woman of my dreams! Being married to the queen would be waaay too much responsibility. Here is a woman after my own heart. And she's a peasant, just like me. Author's Note: I just about choked when I saw who he got on the first try! This game read my mind.

Slide8:

Joshua: Will you marry me? Jasmine: Sure! Sounds fun! Joshua: I'm the luckiest man in the world!

Slide9:

Joshua: Your Majesty, may I introduce my fiancee, Jasmine. “How do you do? I'm pleased you're joining the playable fold, Jasmine. So, when is the happy occasion? Jasmine: How about right now? I've got nothing better to do. “You're so romantic.”

Slide10:

Jasmine: Wow! I had no idea you were so rich, Joshua! Joshua: I'm not rich. I don't even have $20,000 left to build our house. Jasmine: Well, when you only have $14 to your name, pretty much anything is rich. “I like your attitude, Jasmine. You'll do well with Joshua.”

Slide11:

Joshua: Speaking of money, let's make some. We can busk for a while, since we'll both need the creativity points for our career. Jasmine: Already got the creativity handled, honey, but tips are nice.

Slide12:

Jasmine: In fact, why don't we just study the skills we need, and once we've got the minimum requirements to top our career, we can go and have some fun. Joshua: Sounds great. It will let us start out higher, and we can top the career much sooner. I can't wait to be perma-plat. Jasmine: I want to have 100 first dates, and we don't have that many people in town. I'll probably never be perma-plat.

Slide13:

Jasmine: I'll just have to keep my aspiration score up the old fashioned way.

Slide14:

Jasmine: Well, look at that. There are two openings at level 6 in Slacker. Perfect for both of us. I don't like skilling, but we have enough for this career. Now we're done, and we never have to skill again. We just need to make friends, and go to work in a good mood, and we'll be professional party guests in no time.

Slide15:

Joshua: As long as we're here, let's enjoy the hot tub, and make some friends!

Slide16:

Jasmine: I prefer gaming, thanks. It's one of my favorite hobbies.

Slide17:

“I don't know about you guys, but I've had quite enough of the hot tub for now. I guess four lightning rods on the palace roof just weren't enough.” Joshua: Wow! I'm so glad I got out just when I did. Gordon: He sure was lucky he didn't get struck by lighting. Vesuvius: Yeah. That was so evil of him to leave it to the Queen to get hit, instead.

Slide18:

Joshua: I was hoping to have a bit more money to start with, but we can earn a few hundred writing an article or two. Jasmine: OK, but just one each, please. There are more fun things to do around here.

Slide19:

Jasmine: See? Isn't this way more fun? Joshua: You're right! In fact, now I know what sort of family business to start up!

Slide20:

Joshua: What do you think, honey? We have our own fishing pond! We can sell tickets to all the neighbors, and they can fish in our pond, and enjoy the great outdoors. Meanwhile, we're saving a fortune on building, until we can make a bit more from our jobs. And, this is a great way to build up our friendship network, to get those last four promotions.

Slide21:

Jasmine: I know it doesn't look like much right now, but I assure you, it's really fun! Joshua: Hey, Clovis, congratulations on winning the challenge. I think you're a much better king than I would have been. And thank Boolprop it wasn't Groop, right?

Slide22:

Joshua: By the way, congratulations on woohooing the Queen, and on your son. I'm sure he'll do you proud. Clovis: Thanks. Nice place you have here, if you're into roughing it. Do you think you'll be sprucing it up later? Joshua: Sure, eventually. But it's summer, you know? No sense building for the winter until the winter comes.

Slide23:

Jasmine: Joshua may not worry about the winter until the winter comes, but I'm all for stocking up the larder now, before the freeze makes it impossible. And we can sell the surplus later, too. Author's Note: In the background, you can see the ship, in which I magically summoned in all my “Townies,” to populate the land, in the first place. Unfortunately, it crashed, which is how I lost so many of them. The cemetery is next to it, but I haven't decorated it, or anything, so it looks like a blank lot. Someday, I'll open them both up to the public.

Slide24:

Joshua: The trick to building a business that requires little maintenance is to price the tickets really cheap. So cheap! Sure, there isn't really that much to do, but for the money, the customers are happy, and we don't even have to waste time selling.

Slide25:

Jasmine: We made money, even while we were away. And I got a promotion!

Slide26:

Vesuvius: This outdoor shower is so evil. It makes puddles for neat sims like me to clean up. Ha! If Joshua and Jasmine thought they could enjoy mopping the puddles, then it's just too bad, because I beat them to it. What a fun place. Joshua: Hahaha! Neither of us are even remotely neat. How do you think the puddle got there, in the first place? Thanks, Vis!

Slide27:

Joshua: Jasmine, I'm glad you got a promotion, but I really need it more than you do. Will you go on a date with me to boost my aspiration before work? Jasmine: Sure thing, lover. There's no way I'm going to be perma-plat, so anything to boost my aspiration, I'm all for it. I love dates.

Slide28:

Groop: GRAWWWWR! I can't believe that Joshua got to woohoo before Groop! And in public, yet! Now Groop must do what Groop does best. “You know, Groop, you still don't have your swords.” Groop: Now Groop must kick over the garbage can.

Slide29:

Joshua: It worked! I got a promotion, so both Jasmine and I are home video editors, and we have a few days off to focus on our customers and grow the business, before we go in for our next shift.

Slide30:

Neptunium: What a fun place this is! Let's boost it to level 2. Joshua: Thanks! I love these cash rewards. If we can get it to level 5 before winter, we'll be able to pay taxes, and still afford a lovely house.

Slide31:

“Let me teach you all how to do Tai Chi.” Jasmine: Thanks, Your Majesty. And thanks, too, for boosting us to level 3. That bonus really helps. Look! I bought a bubble blower, to give you more fun things to enjoy.

Slide32:

Joshua: The money is coming in, from bonuses, and the trickle from cheap tickets, and now we're both off to work with platinum moods. We should get promoted today.

Slide33:

Joshua: Jasmine, what you did with the bunny rabbits stock footage was AMAZING! Jasmine: I know! The boss told me he didn't need any of his stuff, anymore, and wrote me a check for his entire net worth, and then went off to live in the woods, with all the bunnies. We're rich! Joshua: And we can walk to work for another shift tonight, too!

Slide34:

Joshua: So close! So close! One level away from my dream, but we don't work again until next Tuesday. Jasmine: Just enjoy the weekend, dear, and we'll build up our business some more. I want a house before winter sets in, you know. Walter: How in the world did I manage to earn money just by buying tickets here?

Slide35:

Jasmine: Come and get it, everyone! Eat up, chat up, and make friends and customer stars. Clovis: Did you notice that the Queen has built a little hall at the Crash Zone? She's not sure, yet, if it should be a memorial museum, or a clubhouse, or just a store, so it's not open to the public, yet. It does add to the landscape, though, doesn't it? Walter: Yes, very nice.

Slide36:

Joshua: Finally, we have level 4! With that bonus, and the bonus you got from work, Jasmine, we can really build a good house now.

Slide37:

Jasmine: Alright. We have a nice playground for the kids we'll have someday, and a greenhouse, so we can grow delicious produce to sell, even through the winter. And it's not very many solar panels, but it should be enough to help lower the bills, at least.

Slide38:

Jasmine: If we garden and craft items through the winter, then in the spring, we'll be able to sell the things we've produced, in our show room. Right now, though, the customers are just using it as a dance floor.

Slide39:

Jasmine: And although the port-a-potty is fine for outside, the cold weather demands a better bathroom. This one is inside, and has two stalls, two sinks, and two showers.

Slide40:

Jasmine: I hope the customers like our “club house,” with a big screen TV, a good stereo, and a nice kitchen and dining area.

Slide41:

Joshua: I know I'm going to love working in the greenhouse. I've maxed my Nature enthusiasm, so I'll always be in The Zone when I'm gardening.

Slide42:

Jasmine: And upstairs we have a big living room, without much furniture, yet, and a craft room, where Joshua can sew his projects, I can work on flowers and clay pots, and both of us can work on paintings. Then there are the bedrooms. The purple is the master suite, the turquoise is the nursery, and the orange is the bedroom for the kids, when they grow up a bit. If we have more than two kids, we'll convert the nursery to a bedroom, but I think it will be fine as it is for a good long while.

Slide43:

Joshua: It's our last day, and winter has finally set in. Time to get this garden going, so we'll have some good food in the spring.

Slide44:

Jasmine: I'll make sandwiches for our guests. We only need a few more stars to get level 5, and that final cash bonus for our business.

Slide45:

Joshua: YES! We were so lucky to get that last bonus in time, because we spent a bit too much building this house, and would not have had enough to pay the taxes today. Speaking of which, according to my math, we are worth $204,304, and at 5% for us peasants, rounded up to the nearest hundred, our taxes are $10,300. WHEW! That's just over one percent of a university. And we have to make at least that much every week to keep up our tax payments.

Slide46:

Jasmine: We have to pay HOW MUCH every week in taxes? Alright, Joshua. I know we're both slackers, but we need to make sure we have a good harvest, or we won't be able to keep up. Time to get to work in the garden. “And that is how we leave the Hunter family this week. They had quite a good week, and have set a high bar for the other families to follow. Next week, we'll see if Groop has as good luck.”

Slide47:

Clovis: Michelle! I don't believe you! You set out those laws, and then the very first round, you let Joshua break them. If you let him get away with it, none of your subjects will have any respect for you! “Wait, what? What did he do?” Clovis: He opened a venue! Peasants aren't allowed. It was right there in your first proclamation. Don't you remember?

Slide48:

“Oops. Just because I forgot the rule doesn't mean HE can.” Clovis: So, how are you going to deal with this? “Obviously, he must be punished. Heheheheh.” Clovis: Oh, this will be fun! Do I get to help? “Sure! I thought I'd have to wait weeks before I'd be able to dispense some discipline. So, what to do?”

Slide49:

“I already have a few ideas, but I'm open to suggestions, before I settle on a final plan for punishment. “Preferably, the punishment will make him and his family suffer, but no more than one generation (so no apocalypse this time), so it will be a short challenge (Ahem. Punishment), with a definite reminder that he is a mere peasant, NOT nobility. “I will implement my plan at the beginning of the next round.”

Slide50:

Clovis: Did you do this on purpose, just to add some drama to the neighborhood? Not that I mind. I'm just curious. “Honestly, no. I was playing, while on pain pills, and a real space-case. I actually did forget until it was too late. I swear!” Clovis: Really? “Hah! You should see what I did to poor Ragnar Rock ! It seemed like such a good idea at the time!”

Slide51:

“Of course, when you're on pain pills at three o'clock in the morning, you don't always realize the ramifications of your actions. I did not predict that...” Clovis: Shhh! A good artist knows not to spoil the surprise. “You're right, Clovis. I'm so glad I married you. You really keep me well grounded.”

Slide52:

Happy Simming! Now, I've got to get theses updates out fast! And if you read this before the next royal round, feel free to write in your suggestions for how to punish Joshua Hunter, at the Boolprop thread here . I'll either take the suggestion I like best, or else take a bit of this and that, and mash it all together into my own special blend of punishment. Huh. I guess Joshua Hunter isn't so lucky, after all.
