I see that you’ve stumbled upon the Thoreau Legacy! Welcome, welcome. For those of you who know a thing or two about legacies, let me just tell you now; throw all of that knowledge out of the window. This is not a legacy challenge and will therefore be non-scoring. I originally conceived this to be a slightly more traditional legacy, but the story grew beyond that, and I feel no desire to reign it in. Instead, think of this as the continuing saga of the Thoreau family. I do aim to achieve ten generations, there will be an heir each generation, and I will use no money cheats to add to my legacy household funds, but, other than that, there will be no restrictions. I hope that everyone who finds their way here enjoys the story as my Sims tell it to me.
Not just legacy family members will have their stories told. I may frequently decide to pick up a friend or family member of a spouse as a secondary plot line. This serves a couple of purposes. On one hand, it allows me to take a break from my main family while also keeping the story evolving. It also lets me flesh out a character that, otherwise, would remain just supporting cast. And also, it’s just such fun to find out more about the Sims in the world you’re part of for as long as you’re reading this.
To help keep everyone straight, I’ve created a Meet the Characters page. I am going to update it with relevant information about pertinent characters within the story. You should, though, perhaps avoid it until you are fully caught up.
To navigate this site, please just check out the Chapter List page.
Enjoy reading and happy simming!
