Slainte Legacy Chapter 6 – Deaglan’s Surprise Weekend

The Slainte Family has spent their first week in their new mansion, Barondale, there have been ups and downs for the Family during the week and Deaglan decides to give the Family a big surprise on the weekend to celebrate their first week as well as Mother’s Day.

Deaglan is doing very successfully at work and the children have all made it up to B students in their new school. Arwen has been working very hard on her garden to gather the best and freshest ingredients for cooking and making her Natural Herbicide Oil. Deaglan has heard from some of his coworkers that there is a lovely National Forest a few hours north of where they live in Willow Creek, in a town called Granite Falls. His coworker told him how breathtaking the scenery is there and are both cabins and campgrounds to rent there as well as beautiful hiking and fishing areas. He also mentioned to Deaglan that he’s heard that some people have met a hermit there that grows the most amazing organic plants and knows a secret organic fertilizer recipe for growing the best plants. Deaglan thinks that this might be the perfect opportunity to celebrate Mother’s Day together, their first week’s achievements, give the family a well needed break, explore new areas of their new country and maybe Siobhan can convince the hermit to share her secret fertilizer with her!

Over a grilled steak dinner that night Deaglan makes an announcement.

Deaglan announces, “I have a surprise planned for us this weekend!”

Aiden exclaims, “I hope it is something active where I can play!”

Siobhan says, “Calm yourselves children, we still don’t know what Daddy has in store for us, although I am excited myself!”

“Don’t you worry!” Deaglan says “I believe there will be something to entertain everyone! We are going to Granite Falls National Forest to camp for the weekend!”

Arwen shrieks with joy over this news.

Alroy comments “I bet this will be a fun family adventure.”

“I sure hope we enjoy ourselves there, I know there are many new activities for us to try and Siobhan, I think you will find the hermit’s gardening knowledge very interesting.”

“Oh my yes, I am looking for a better way to fertilize my garden and perfect the quality of the plants!” Siobhan replies.

“Than it’s settled, every one get a good night’s sleep and be ready to leave first thing tomorrow morning, you kids better have an early night.” Deaglan commands “I also bought everyone new camping gear for the trip you will find them in your rooms!”

Arwen trills “Oh, Daddy I love new clothes!”

Slainte Legacy Chapter 4 – Introducing the “A” Generation!

The new mansion is finished for the Slainte Family, the construction process took longer than they had anticipated so the babies have aged up into children while they were living in the old house.

For more background on the Slainte Family check out the introduction

Authors Note: I really don’t like the “baby” objects in S4 because all they seem to do is poop and cry and having a good relationship with the parents makes no difference in S4 so I age up the kids as soon as I can.

Introducing the “A” Generation – Triplets!

Both Siobhan and Deaglan received secret fertility treatments to make sure that they were able to produce a healthy heir for the Slainte Family. This resulted in the hilarious outcome of triplets for the expecting parents! They were both pleased and surprised to have 3 children to manage, and they are very happy that they are not identical twins or they wouldn’t be able to tell them apart!

Slainte Legacy Chapter 3 – A New House

Our Founders have just had their first children, triplets! And well probably their last too, since 3 kids are hard to manage.

For more background on the Slainte Family check out the introduction

Before having the triplets, Deaglan and Siobhan had been living in a very nice suburban home in the middle class neighborhood of Willow Creek called Pendula View. They were provided this house from the Family back in Ireland, Deaglan’s uncle owns it as an investment property. They loved the house because it was beautiful, well furnished and in a good neighborhood.

Sadly with the birth of the triplets this beautiful house is now too small for their growing family, especially if they plan to have 26 generations living out of it in the future! So Deaglan makes an expensive long distance call to the Patriarch of the Slainte Family to discuss buying or building a new house for them and their new children.

Introduction to My Alphabet Legacy Achievement Family

Hello and Welcome to my New Legacy Family!

I will be introducing the family members here and providing a bit of back story for the Family. If anyone is not aware there is an achievement in S4 called Alphabet Legacy, the goal is to complete 26 generations in one household. Just so everyone knows I will NOT be following any formal legacy rules like Pinstar, I will be following my own set of rules, which maybe modified or changed for story purposes. So far there are no rules to pick the new legacy heir for each generation, any thoughts or suggestions are welcome in the comments. Now on to the introductions!


The Slainte Family

The Slainte Family comes from a wealthy family line of sims from Ireland. Their last name means “good health” in Gaelic and is phonetically pronounced “Slancheh”. The Family in Ireland is very successful in business, medicine and real estate. Many Family members are prominent business men or doctors and many own large plots of land that have been handed down over the generations. Since the Slainte’s have had such great success in their home country of Ireland, the family has decided to send their most successful young adult male to Willow Creek in the USA to make a new fortune and establish the family name in a new country. As per tradition in the old country, the Slainte Family would not be considered fully established in their new country until they have reached 26 generations! In order to make it a little easier for this YA male founder, the Family allowed him to marry his childhood sweetheart back in Ireland before moving into his new home in Willow Creek! The Family also generously provided a lavish residence for their new legacy so they could continue to live in the luxury and comfort that they are accustomed to in Ireland. They have also been given §150,000 simoleons to fund their legacy and insure that future generations are not broke! However the Family still expects the male founder to continue in his career and contribute to the new family fortune they are establishing in Willow Creek. The female founder’s duty is more simple, she must have children and care for their growing family.

Founding Father – Deaglan Stainte

(phonetically pronounced Decklan Slanchah)

His aspiration is Successful Lineage which gives him the Domestic trait. His 3 other traits are Genius, Ambitious and Confident.
