Unfortunately, the title of this post is correct. And when my computer died, it took all of my Sims files with it. This means no more of Last of Her Kind, but I am planning on starting a new RLC once I get a new computer up and running.
Meanwhile, in the Faelands…
Crazy Man: The Summerfae Queen is dead.
Fairy: I did not ask you to kill her…but you did a good job nonetheless.
Crazy Man: Thank you, my Queen.
Fairy: And the Azul woman?
Crazy Man: Um…she escaped…
Fairy: Idiot! You have failed me, Darkarion! I should use you instead of her…
Darkarion: My Queen…I can find her…
Fairy: See that you do. Another failure will not be tolerated.
(Duck Notes: Thank you to owl_face for lending me the fairy Sim! Check out her awesome storyline! Also, thank you to candlelight82 for the house that I used for this interlude’s screenshots!)
Here’s the family tree for the relevant Sims for Last of Her Kind, as of the end of Chapter 3:
These are the rules I am using to determine which Sim will be heir in any given generation of Last of Her Kind:
- Only mermaid Sims that can trace their lineages to Mia are eligible to be heir.
- If there is exactly one eligible Sim, that Sim becomes heir.
- If there are no eligible Sims, the youngest Sim that can trace his/her lineage to Mia will be made a mermaid using MasterController and will be heir. (Duck Notes: This is how Maya became both a mermaid and the Gen 2 heir.)
- The unlikely event that none of the Sims can trace their lineages to Mia will be considered a failure and end the legacy.
- If there is more than one eligible Sim, there will be an heir vote between the eligible Sims on this site, with the winner of the heir vote becoming heir.
- In the event of a tie in the heir vote, the oldest out of the tied Sims becomes heir.
Yup, I have access to my savefile again. Last of Her Kind will be returning!
I’m going to be posting an interlude along with some game details in the near future, and start work on Chapter 4 proper in late October or early November.
Thank you all for reading!
Unfortunately, due to me not having access to my savefile for Last of Her Kind, the story will be going on indefinite hiatus. I do intend on coming back to this storyline once I am able to, and I thank everyone that has read it.
I went to play the legacy some more and noticed that Llanye has an Imaginary Friend. Since I don’t really like the default IF names and I can’t really think of a name at this point, I decided to leave it to my readers. So, please comment what you think a good name for the IF would be, and I’ll choose the best name from the comments! Thanks!
UPDATE: The name has been decided.
(Duck Notes: I know, an update for Last of Her Kind is long overdue. And I don’t have that update ready yet. However, I did write up a bit of lore for the world that Arthur, Mia, Maya, and Llanye live in, and I’m going to be sharing it with you now.)
Simmium is the planet that the story takes place on. Inhabitants of Simmium are known as Sims, regardless of whether they are human or supernatural.
The planet Kytania orbits a star 2.86 light-years away from Simmium’s sun. Originally, Kytanian civilization had a medieval technology level; however, Sim colonists have taken over Kytania, enslaving the native Kytanians.
The Faelands are not a planet, but rather an alternate dimension where the Fairies hail from.
The Sim Fairies traditionally divided themselves into two factions: the Summerfae and the Winterfae. Traditionally, the Summerfae took power over the Sim Faelands at the vernal equinox, and the Winterfae took power at the autumnal equinox.
Not much is known about the Kytanian Faelands and their Fairies.
Sims worship a deity known as the Watcher. The Watcher divides himself into several Aspects, each of which can be worshipped as a deity in and of itself. Three of the most commonly known Aspects are Shari, Aspect of Sea, Glenda, Aspect of Nature, and Aspear, Aspect of Intellect.
Kytania also has a Watcher. Unlike the Sim Watcher, the Kytanian Watcher does not have Aspects. The Sim conquerors of Kytania have made worship of the Kytanian Watcher highly illegal.
It felt weird for Arthur to sleep alone in that double bed. But sleep eventually did find him, and dreams did likewise. He dreamt of a unicorn – a manifestation of Glenda, aspect of nature – running through a snowy field, light trailing behind. And the unicorn spoke to him in his dream.
Unicorn: To find who you seek, go to this location…
When Arthur awoke, he remembered where the unicorn had told him to go. He got on his bike and rode into the sunrise…
Mia swam through the pool – no, the cage – that she was in. At least her captor was kind enough to provide water, but it was fresh water. She didn’t know how long she had been there, but she did know that if she stayed too long, she would die of salt-water deficiency.
Mia did not want to die.
As Mia was contemplating her situation, she heard a knock on the side of the cage. Looking down, she saw a woman with bright green wings.
Mia (thinking): A fairy…
(Duck Notes: Mia should have a tail instead of her legs when swimming; this is a bug.)
Mia swam closer to the fairy.
Mia: Where are we?
Fairy: I wish I knew exactly. What I do know is that this crazy human knocked me out, and the next thing I knew, I was locked up here. By the way, I’m Ceuj of the house of Silvergryphon, and this is my daughter Llanye.
Mia: I’m Mia Azul. Now how do we get out of here…
Ceuj: Quick, act like nothing’s happening! He’s back!
Crazy Man: Ah, my pets…
Arthur continued to ride his bike through the snowy day, desperately seeking to find the location that the unicorn had hinted Mia would be at.
And he finally made it there. As he walked into the unassuming building, he saw Mia trapped in an enclosure. He also saw the unicorn from his dreams, also trapped, and a fairy mother and child. Unfortunately, their captor was in the building as well.
Arthur: Let Mia go!
Crazy Man: Is this daughter of Shari a friend of yours? She has everything she needs here.
Arthur walked up to the wall of the enclosure and felt it. It was made of acrylic – plastic. The Toxin.
Arthur: What the hell are you doing? Let! Her! Go! Now!
Crazy Man: Why would I do that?
Words turned to blows, as Arthur and the crazy man got into a fight, which Arthur won.
Arthur then cut a hole in the wall of the tank holding Mia, releasing both her and all the water in the tank. The flood was enough for the other captives to break out as well.
Ceuj: By the honor of my house, I will see you dead!
But that was not to be. As Ceuj lay dying, she looked to Arthur and Mia.
Ceuj: Please…take care…of my…Llanye…
And with that, Ceuj of the house of Silvergryphon died.
Mia: Thanks for saving me! But…
Arthur: You’re sad about the fairy?
Mia: Yes. She was my only friend in this hell. And now, she’s dead.
Mia picked up the now-orphaned fairy child Llanye, and she and Arthur exited the building to go home.
(Duck Notes: Yes, Llanye is the spare for this generation.)
