5.7: Chess or Die: Vol. 2

Hey everybody! Happy Easter! It’s time for another chapter of the Kanto Legacy! At the pace I’m going, we might be done with this generation by retirement!

In the last chapter, all the kids in the house had a birthday. Arbok became a toddler, Espeon became a child, and our twins grew into teens. Let’s see what troubles we get into this time, shall we?

Romance 1-Baby

First, some romance. More babies from Weast and Wobbuffet.

Romance 2

JenGin is at it again.

Romance 3

Although flirting with newly teenaged cousins is fun too, ne?

But enough about the spares. Let’s see what the main branch of the family is up to.


Arbok: Potty training is srs bidness…


Arbok: Parents? I went potty all by myself! Why is nobody here to acknowledge me??? Parents?!?!


We got our little virtuoso to the xylophone before he could cause too much of a ruckus. Crisis averted.

Arbok: Music soothes my soul ❤


Little miss here has her first before school breakfast. They grow up so fast!

Espeon: You’re going to bowl like a baby when I leave, aren’t you? But don’t worry. You’ll be bus-y with the rest of my family, so you won’t even notice my subtraction from the house.


This is Ditto’s attempt to look happy. Do you find it convincing enough?

Ditto: ~grimaces~ I’m so excited to go to school, guys. See how happy I am? I’m smiling and everything.

Nice try, hun. But you’ve got some work to do on your fake emotions.


Espeon: Brother.

Missingno: Sister.

Espeon: I hate you 🙂

Missingno: I hate you a slightly larger amount 🙂

I’m so glad my children get along so well.


Autonomous!Tari plops down to play with Arbok. Sometimes I forget that she’s not actually these kids’ grandmother.

Altaria: I may as well be. Now if you’ll excuse me, the maestro here was playing me a sonata.

Arbok: I call it: Ode to Heirship. It shall be played when I ascend my throne!

Keep telling yourself that, kid.


Leds invited Kyo-kun back over to actually play chess this time.

Ledyba: Show your face, old man, so I can whip your ass properly!

Kyogre: Should I be scared? Cause I think I’m kind of scared…


Ledyba: This isn’t even a challenge anymore.

Another flawless victory. Honestly, I have no idea why this has been so easy for me.

Ledyba: It’s because I’m so awesome, duh.


Phillip: Can you say torture device, Ary?

Arbok: High heels!

Phillip: Wonderful!

Maid: That’s right, my love. Teach your wife’s last pathetic child. You’ll be having MY children soon enough…



Missingno: Em is getting kind of tired of doing homework on the floor. Why can’t we go to the table, twin?

Ditto: Because, Em.


Ditto: Sister is there.

Missingno: Oh, I see.

Espeon: Stupid boys…

Also, Hilary is there. Hilary is always there…

Hilary: I’m just draining your battery life by trolling on forums. No big deal.


Phil and Leds congratulate each other on successful endeavors for the day. In the bathroom. Where their guest was trying to pee.

Kyogre: I almost missed this place, until I remembered the crazy…


Espeon: Hilary and I have decided that we’re skipping school tomorrow. We’re going clothes shopping instead.

Ditto: But I thought you were supposed to be the good one.

Espeon: Even good girls go through a rebellious phase, brother.


Ditto: First she’s more popular than me, and now she gets to skip school?…life’s not fair…

Oh, she’s not skipping school hun. She’s ambitious. She’ll have a mental breakdown if she doesn’t progress at least once a day.


These two finally took their PDA to the bed where it belongs.

Ledyba: Quiet, we’re trying to conceive another offspring.

No more babies right now, children. You two have plenty.


Arbok: Who is this person?

That’s your Auntie Jamie.

Arbok: I have an aunt?

I can see how you would forget her. She hasn’t been popping up a lot lately.

Jamie: I’ve been busy. What do you want from me?


Skilling time! Ditto intensely reads a cooking skill book.

Ditto: Quiet! Absorbing information of this caliber takes complete focus…


Essey wanted to learn the writing skill, so she starts on her first novel.

Espeon: I’m so happy to be sentenced to being glued to a computer for the rest of my life. Just like grandpa Squirtle was!

And he turned out so well, didn’t he?


Em, meanwhile, goes to take a gardening class…I think?

Missingno: One must learn to grow ones own vegetables if one is to live the life of a vegetarian like Em.

Between him and his twin, we could start up a restaurant.


What’s this? Ledyba is teaching one of her children for once?

Ledyba: Shut up. I can be a good mother when I wanna be. Now get over here kid, I don’t have all day.


Ah, she’s only toddler training because Phil is busy with skilling of his own.

I haven’t actually sent him to work in a really long time. I’m not really cut out for interior decorating, but maybe we’ll try again sometime in the near future?


Oh boy, looks like the children are bonding…

Espeon: I say we make a truce, brother. I think the two of us working together could be a dangerous combination. We could get filthy rich! We could rule the world!


Missingno: Throw in some diamonds and Em is in, princess.

Espeon: You got it, brother.


Missingno: Twin. Em has called a truce with sister. We’ve made a deal to take over the world together.

Ditto: That’s cool I guess. But you might need by genius, so can I join?

Missingno: You’ll have to take that up with sister.




She is adorable.

That is all.


Ditto: Hold still, Em. I’m going to control your mind so you won’t wanna work with sister anymore.


Missingno: Woah, twin. Isn’t this a bit extreme?


Uh-oh. Looks like it backfired.

Ditto: Duhhh….what was I doing?…


Missingno: Twin? Brother? Ditto, talk to Em!

Jamie: He’ll be fine, honey. He’s only a little bit brain dead.


Looks like we’ve got some trick-or-treaters. Kindra is an inception alien.


And possible future spouse Chandra is a scuba diver.

Chandra: I hate all of you…

She’s perfect for Em, isn’t she?


Ledyba: What was I doing out here again?…

Chandra: Candy, bitch. You got some?


Birthday time! Here’s Stefan Van Gould, the youngest offspring of Herbson. He’s quite the cutie!


And here is Josiah, Weast and Wobbuffet’s son.

Romance 4-Anniversary!

Wow, two years! As cliche as it sounds, it seems like just yesterday that Cerulean gen were still teens.

Romance 5

Tepig found a new man! This is the first I’ve heard from Bernard in a while. I hope SP lets them be happy!

Romance 6-Nemesis

Well that didn’t last long. Is anyone surprised?

Missingno's Gender Preference

Ditto's Gender Preference

The boys’ gender preferences. Don’t know why I don’t have pictures of anyone asking them. Anyways, looks like the Tartlam ladies will be fair game for the both of them! Exciting!


Essey is up super early in the morning.

Espeon: I’m playing with Mien best friend. He’s shao-ing me love ❤


Em is up early too, getting some exercise in.

Missingno: It’s never too early in the morning to get less fat!


Ummm, hi? What are you doing here this morning, Nick?

Nick: I’m here for tricks or treats.

That…was last night…

Nick: I’ll wait here as long as I have to.


Nick: Candycandycandycandy!!!

Altaria: What a charming little boy.



Another chess opponent. Another victory.


YAAASSSSS!!!!! Now we just have to finish up the logic skill and Leds is done with her LTW!!!


Oh no…

Kimberly: I feel kinda funny…


Ledyba: ….not again…


Grim: Really, Kantos? Killing someone over chess again? 

It’s not like we did it on purpose!!!


Jamie: Hey, guys?…


Jamie: Well that’s peculiar.

Looks like Grimmy decided to go for a double reaping.


Altaria: NOOO!!! NOT MY WIFE!!!

Ledyba: Another one?…what is wrong with me?…


Grim: Squirts and I are taking an extended vacation to Disney World, so I thought I might as well get this over with. 

(Grim is making it extremely hard to photograph him, appearing on the roof directly facing the wall. We really need to redo this house…)


Altaria and Ledyba: ~mourns~

Phillip: Way to die in inconvenient places, Jamie. I needed those stairs…

Maid: Boo to the dead lady inconveniencing dearest Phillip!

As you can see, everyone was quite torn up about the death.


Jamie Ring lived to the ripe old age of 118, just a couple days away from being my oldest Sim ever. She was a great maid and an even greater lover to our heiress, Tari. She never completed her LTW of being a firefighter superhero, but she did get far in the athletic career for how short a time she was in it. She will be missed. Her grave will be moved next door to the graveyard with the other departed Kantos soon.


Leds had it in her queue to flirt with Grim. But of course she couldn’t get to him on the roof.

Ledyba: I was going to seduce death, but there’s a wall in the way…could this day get any worse?

She would be the one to make Grim her bitch. And now I’m totally regretting not having her make Reaper babies…


Innocent baby is innocent.

Arbok: Me and Misty would like to see Grim try to take mommy away. We’ll fight him.

Don’t worry, kid. She’s not going anywhere. Not if Grim’s best friend has anything to say about it.


Phillip: How am I meant to give people my dazzling smile when my wife tried to cheat on me with death?…

Ledyba: That’s the part you’re upset about? Not our aunt dying?

Phillip: At least her death isn’t a betrayal to my very soul!

Ditto: Dad, you’re such a pansy. She didn’t even do anything.

Phillip: My son too? Who else will you turn against me, you vile wench?!


Poor Autonomous!Tari hasn’t left this spot since Jamie passed. And since my game breaks every time I try to control her, I can’t help her. I hope she moves soon…


On a more positive note, Francesca Tartlam grew into a child. And she’s a cutie!

Romance 7

Cheez Whiz is apparently moving on from his breakup with Tepig to go after a teen. I mean, Marcelo is definitely a good catch, but I’d rather you spread your genetics elsewhere, Mr. Personality.

Romance 8-Baby

BernTep babies!

Romance 10-Breakup (1)

And finally, Cameras broke up! So sad! They make such attractive children together!!!

Well, that’s all I have for this chapter. Thank you guys so much for reading. Hope you all have a great day, and happy Simming!


One thought on “5.7: Chess or Die: Vol. 2

  1. OMG! Bernard babies! OMG! So excited!

    Okay, now that I’ve calmed myself. Em and Espeon are adorabolical! I have decided that either as heir would be lovely. Yes, quite. *nods*

    The Tart girls are super pretty! Can’t wait to see if one of the twins romances the eldest. She’s super cute and looks to be Grumpy, which I find endearing.

    Awesome chapter! 🙂
