Eich 2 (R6)

The last time we checked in on Tia Eich she had just graduated from Sim State and embarked on her adult life. Unfortunately luck was not with Tia during her first week as an adult. She had a hard time picking up men, got struck by lightning, lost her job due to a bad chance card, came down with the flu, and to top it all off, her apartment got robbed. Will Tia have better luck this week? Lets find out.

Tia's life hadn't been going so well thus far, but she was determined to make a better go of it. She met Ryker Terrill, a.k.a. Mr. Big, downtown and decided to invite him over to her apartment.

Tia appealed to Mr. Big's vanity and it didn't take long for him to succumb to Tia's feminine wiles

(Ryker Terrill, a.k.a. Mr. Big - lover #8)

Tia was having a blast heading downtown almost every night to pick up men that it was only fitting she declare a secondary aspiration of pleasure.

And maximized her Arts and Crafts enthusiasm

Tia got a great bonus at work

The bonus allowed her enough cash to:
1) move out the apartments and into a home of her own
2) buy a small bungalow on Twikki Island
3) take a vacation

Tia's dad Julio told her how he found a map to a secret location when they took their Far East vacation. Tia thought it would be neat if she could find a similar map at her beach house. The minute Tia got to Twikki Island, she dug up the backyard looking for a map

After finding a map to the Mysterious hut, Tia traveled around the island taking in the sites and meeting the locals. At the beach she learned to fire dance

she built a sandcastle

And worked on her tan

Tia also booked her first tour, a glass-bottomed boat ride. Unfortunately the relaxation didn't help Tia's unlucky streak

After the disasterous boat ride, Tia headed back home to use the energizer and invite over one of the island natives she met at the beach, Jim Reeves.

Tia and Jim have 3 bolts of attraction so it was easy to build their relationship quickly

(Jim Reeves - lover #9)

The next day for breakfast, Tia tried the island specialty - pineapple surprise

She also explored an abandoned pirate ship exhibit and managed to meet the ship's ghostly captain

After meeting a few more natives, Tia embarked on another tour, this time a parasailing excursion. Like the last tour, Tia's luck wasn't so hot

To cheer herself up after another horrible tour, Tia invited over Talin Vijayakar for a little romance

(Talin Vijayakar - lover #10)

After saying goodbye to Talin, Tia went off to the monkey shrine to wish for some better luck

The wishing shrine seemed to work. Tia entertained another guest, Darren Johnson, a fellow tourist

((it looks like Darren anticipated Tia's intentions for his visit))

Tia added another notch to her lipstick case

(Darren Johnston - lover #11)

and then headed off for her third and final tour. This time she had much better luck than subsequent tours

Tia then decided to scope out the mysterious hut where she met a witch doctor with a lot of broken stuff. Tia repaired the witch doctors hut

While the witch doctor lounged around in the hammock ((no wonder he can't fix his stuff if he spends all day in the hammock instead of skilling!!))

The witch doctor also had a bit of a nervous breakdown due to his lack of mechanical skill I suppose

After the hut was in good working order, Tia and the witch doctor had some hula time

The witch doctor also gave Tia a voodoo doll as a thank you present

Tia was playing with the voodoo doll, apparently it doesn't work on the witch doctor

Tia headed to the expensive beach-front hotel restaurant for dinner

She scoped out the room and found another prospective lover

Troy left before Tia had the chance to introduce herself... and the voodoo doll backfired on him as well :(

She was hanging out at another lot when she met Goopy Kimbrell

In the morning she invited Goopy over for a quickie ((he is a family sim, I'm surprised their relationship grew as fast as it did))

(Goopy Kimbrell - lover #12)

During her date with Goopy, the gypsy matchmaker dropped off a genie lamp

((This was strange because throughout the whole vacation, Tia was getting pop-ups that she was losing enthusiasm in this, that, and the other. I think the lamp is a reward for the music and dance enthusiasm Tia gained while on vacation))

The genie was loathe to comply with Tia's request for a wish though

All the dates and woohoo allowed Tia enough points to max out her lifetime aspiration benefits

Tia's vacation was winding down. She had time to invite over one more hottie, Zeeshan Kimbrell

(Zeeshan Kimbrell - lover #13)

Tia had enough time to relax and learn the hot-stone massage before she headed back to Silvervale. ((I have plans for this new massage when we see Tia next round ::evil grin::))

When Tia got back from her massage, Goopy had dropped off a big screen TV for her

Bright and early the next morning Tia left Twikki Island to head back to Silvervale

Tia took advantage of her vacation benefits and spent her points in refreshed, productive and je ne sais quoi

She also displayed her vacation mementos

And the men she romanced on the island stopped by to drop off gifts

At work the next day Tia earned her final promotion bringing her to the top of the culinary career

She also took advantage of the genie lamp that she got while on vacation. She wished for fortune twice and beauty once ((although I'm not quite sure what beauty does))

between the promotion and the wishes, Tia earned 100,000 in her lifetime

To round out the week, Tia called up two of her friends from town to take advantage of her je ne sais quoi vacation benefit

(Jim Lillard - lover #14)

(Vince Johnston - lover #15)

Scoring: 5 points (1 point for maxing A&C enthusiasm, 3 points for maxing the lifetime aspiration meter, 1 point for TOC culinary)

Household Net-Worth: 100,007

((That wraps it up for Tia. this 20 simultaneous lovers LTW is so hard!!! Not only does Tia have to seduce the men, she has to keep up relationships with them. I can't wait until I complete it. I actually played Tia's lot normally but then I felt badly because she only had a very short play session so I sent her on vacation. Without vacation she would only be at 10 lovers instead of 15. The vacation actually happened after everything else in the round, but I thought it made a better story to put it in the middle. This officially completes round 6. We'll be heading off to start round 7 with the Pushard's next))

Tia had a lot of good things happen to her this round! Congrats on getting all the reward points!

I noticed you play 7 day rounds. You really get in-depth with each character that way. I used to play 5 days rounds, and I liked that about it.

I haven't done 20 simultaneous loves, it is especially challenging.

Wow, that's a heck of a work bonus! Nice! And 15 lovers, woohoo, almost there! Pun intented, hehe.

Haha, Tia's cursed. She'll probably have deformed babies with arm and such. Who get struck by lightning frequently. And always get bad chance cards. Maybe they'll get bit by Balin though, and hey, you can make that work for you.

Loooove Tia's vaca outfit. Nice choice.

Grats! You're almost there! 20 simultaneous lovers is the tougher one. The woohoo 20 is easier since they dont have to stay in love heh
