Rabbit holes Edit
New families Edit
A table for one. For Leo there is no greater love than his love of food. Will he find romance or will his culinary appetites always come first?
Thad Hare, Rose Adler
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop. Here it ends with a freshly caught fish and a well cooked meal for two.
Veronica Ryder, Heather McCray
They are united through their love of 80's brat pack films and mutual disgust of Titus Lyons. They are a perfect pair of bad hair and love lost.
Billy Morgan, Toby Bassett
The desire to win best defines these Sims. While life may be too short for chess let's hope Toby is not too short to become a Super Star.
Ronald Bacon, Yvette Farr
The strong attraction for athleticism brought these two together. A shared braveness helps to combat the hooligans at the local match as well.
Jamar Bolton, Josh Love
Much like oil and water, peanut butter and hair and BB guns and eyeballs these two roommates are like misshapen peas in a pod.
As an aspiring Emperor of Evil it is important to find a calm hobby like fishing. No surprise then that she sees it as one for drowning worms.
She is a flirty, hot headed coward with a gift for gab. Could she be anything but a politician? Is change called for or has her fate been cast?
Shannon Chandler, Kim McNamara
Mc and Cha in the house. Cookin'up, eatin'up, dishen'up the fun and up the field of life. Excitable, eatable as long as it's a vegetable. Yo.
She cannot help but see the world as a haiku. How odd one might ask. A poet with hope. To set a table for art. Beauty will flourish.
Jo Abel, Tia Drake
Accustomed to living alone it was a big change when Tia's best friend moved in. Will Jo be the perfect housemate or Tia's biggest regret?
Diana Salazar, Garrick Pitt
For these two, work is a way to discover the world and then give your heart to it. One day they will discover their hearts belong to each other.
Burning the bridges of love is the way of this Sim. He is a pyromaniac of girlish crushes and love is the fuel that lights his torturous match.
His earliest role models include a 9,999 piece jigsaw puzzle and a doll named Cane. Both of which he stole. Clearly he is an evil genius.
Returning families Edit
Holly Alto, Don Alto
Rich, rich, rich is their motto. Unscrupulous business practices have gotten them far. Far from happiness and redemption some might say.
Alex Goth, Cecilia Goth
They have lived in town since the beginning. Is their aura of gloom deserved or more the result of growing up with dad named
Malcolm Landgraab, Bambi Landgraab
Malcolm's family founded the town, so it was no surprise that when Bambi was looking for some gold to dig she looked to him. Is this true love or true greed?
