Roman Round 4: Moran

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-49-20-96

The Moran family were originally fair with blond hair and brown eyes. The hair has been lost in the direct line but there are enough blond sims running around to bring it back.

This was an eventful round for the Moran’s as their propensity for bad luck resurfaced after generations of ease.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-00-57-49This is about the only picture I have of the shop from this round but it does still exist. I didn’t cheat with the opening hours or anything but my focus this round was more on the sims themselves.

We started the round with a birthday Les Wynn, who incidentally carries no Wynn blood at all and will be changing his name at the end of the era, grew into an adult. I have no idea what happened to his skin, the default replacements I have in are really glitchy. I must look into that.

“Not orange! It clashes horribly with my hair.” Someone is less than thrilled at his makeover.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-12 17-12-48-94

Little Kleon who looks more like a Harmon with Wynn features than the Moran heir grew into a toddler. I’m hoping he grows into his features.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-12 17-13-15-15

Korin, the son of Les and Rain looks far more like a Moran. Ah sim genetics, you taunt me so… I have no idea where his hair colour came from probably one of those elusive founder recessives I put in.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-12 17-21-11-34

Just a friendly reminder that Rain spent the beginning of the round pregnant. I believe she wasn’t as far along as her belly would indicate.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-43-14-66

Syd succumbed to the flu at first it seemed only Felix was there to lament his passing.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-44-15-64

But Fira arrived just in the nick of time to save him.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-50-14-36

After all she was expecting her third baby and babies need fathers.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-52-43-34

Speaking of her babies, little Alba collapsed at the foot of the stairs. Ill with the same deadly illness as her uncle/step-father.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-53-15-47

The whole family crowded around to try and save her.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-54-22-39

But death, evidently tired of the Moran’s cheating their unlucky fate took Alba.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-55-10-97

Alba was spoilt and very loved. She would be surely missed. Even her little step-brother and whatever-relation-Korin-is-to-her, too young to understand death were devastated.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-55-34-78

Fira was hit the hardest by her girl’s passing.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 14-59-05-51

Life slowly picked back up it’s pace. Rain grew closer to her due date.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-02-10-74

Syd managed to work off his belly.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-25-16-40

And Fira went into labor.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-25-56-98

This is Georgios. Since he has the correct eyes and may carry blond hair  I’ve decided the Moran line will skip Kleon and go to him.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-28-13-48

Syd is less than pleased at the birth of his son as he and his aunt Luna dread the extra messes to clean.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-29-31-20

After an uneventful pregnancy Rain went into labor.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-31-43-30

She had another boy, Cato. The house was pretty crowded by this point.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-32-27-11

No sooner had Rain given the baby to Luna to hold than the labor pains started again. Neither she nor I expected twins from such an easy pregnancy.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-33-05-34

She had a girl, named Horacia.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-33-34-63

With Fira too tired, Les off somewhere and Syd to ‘busy’ to hold the baby Rain laid her daughter on the floor.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-34-15-17

Turns out I wasn’t right about it not being twins. Little Pyrrhus, followed his brother and sister into the world. I’m happy to see more green eyes floating around.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-36-55-83

I was cursing all through the birth. Even if it was just twins they’d have twice as many babies as they can fit cots into the nursery area. As it is they have three times as many babies/toddlers as cots.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-38-35-69

That night Rain grew into an adult.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-39-55-68

With four young children to care for she traded her old finery for more station appropriate clothes.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-13 15-42-06-92

To save my sanity Rain and Les moved out with their children. Six babies/toddlers and a shop is more than I can deal with. Since I moved them out mid round you’ll be seeing the rest of their round up next.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 14-58-35-75

Luna succumbed to the mystery illness (ok I forgot what it was but shh) and again only loyal Felix seemed to care. Fira was so worn by running after toddlers and babies that she walked right past without noticing.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-02-40-34

Syd was too busy with the shop and garden to notice.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-03-47-42

Life went on and little Georgios started crawling.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-04-17-53

He shared a birthday with his big brother.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-05-57-27

Here Kleon is post makeover.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-06-35-72

While Kleon was sifting through hand me downs from long forgotten relatives Fira began to feel deathly ill.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-07-03-74 Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-07-28-22

Luckily death was merciful and returned her soul.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-07-57-64

This has happened so many times between them that neither deems the near death experience worth a comment.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-10-54-59

Rain found some time away from her babies to furnish her new apartment.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-13-03-51

Syd’s birthday rolled around. Of the eleven generation three direct Moran line descendents he is the only one to reach adulthood. All of his siblings died very young.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-13-36-86

As a knowledge sim he wasn’t happy about the lack of educational prospects.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-16-36-28

He dressed in a similar style to Les.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-17-25-27

He found time to potty train his son.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-19-10-92

Next thing I knew this was before me. The urn is Fira’s. With no way to save Syd he was claimed by Grimmy at last. The longest surviving generation three Moran lived not ten hours after his adult birthday. Georgios was terrified and hid under the bed while ever loyal Felix cried for his sims.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-20-17-55

Poor baby 😦

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-23-16-74

Once more the Moran line was left hanging by a thread.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-24-32-60

Or in this case on the shoulders of a six year old and his baby brother. I couldn’t find any relatives to move in and I would have to play Les and Rain for a few days before I could move them back in so I decided to just play the brothers alone for the remaining day.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-24-58-29

Turns out I modded out the socail worker taking orphaned kids but not the cops taking abandoned pets. Lets just say Felix was stolen. Yeah that works.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-25-24-06

Kleon snatches a moment of childhood while his brother sleeps.

Sims2EP9 2014-10-14 15-35-08-72

Child: Kleon (4), Toddler: Georgios (4)

Please survive babies. I can’t have an original family line going extinct.

  1. OMG I was on the edge of my seat and now Im like O.O…. I was just thinking at the start of this round “Syd is so playful and friendly looking…” and then he got fit and grew up and went from cheeky to handsome and ooh la la and…. now he’s DEAD?! UGH *face down on the floor in defeat* I’m too attached to your sims haha XD

  2. *cough* itchy trigger finger… was also going to say, I hope the kids survive! I might be confused here but is Georgios’ Syds? Coz from where I’m sitting they look closely related! I suppose everyone is though by now >_> XD

    • He was one of my favorites so I was sad to see him go but realistic sickness does that. I’m starting to think the Morans are cursed because this is the third time I’ve had the family line hang by one or two sims. Sure other families have seen worse but not in every single generation.

      I hope they do too. Sure I don’t want to lose an original family but I also really like these two.

      Everyone’s very interrelated at this point. There’s no way to tell who’s from which family anymore. Even with the third generation I could pick a sims family based on their features but not anymore. I’m barely able to find spouses at this point but I’m pretty sure it will be easier for the current kids. Getting promotions is nigh on impossible because sims just aren’t making friends with (or in some cases even meeting) the unrelated sims.
