Sara and Jason bought a vacation home in Champs Les Sims.
This visit to France was very laid back. Jason raised his charisma skill, while Sara made nectar and excavated dig sites.
The family returned home to bad news: Jason’s mum had passed away. He hurried to his dad’s side to comfort him.
Story progression had some happy reports too, though. Shirin and Leighton’s son Kaveh just got engaged to Jason’s sister Janis. Sara stopped by the house to wish them well.
Maria had a birthday party. All of the Mitra-Sekemotos showed up to celebrate with her.
Thiago made quite an impression on Shirin and Leighton’s daughter Layla. She’s neutoric like him, so listened with fascination while he shared his conspiracy theories.
Unlike his sisters, Naoise still likes to keep to himself. He has been working towards the ‘Timber Terminator’ challenge, which will allow him to get gems from space rocks he smashes on the board breaker.
Daniel and his uncle Thiago both grew up. I moved Thiago in with his sister Breda.
Naoise traveled to Shang Simla. He only had one tomb left to complete there, and the quest chain just wasn’t coming up, so I cheated and used Debug Enabler to give it to him. I accidentally walked him into a few traps, but he had a good time nonetheless.
Back in Sunset Valley, Sara and Jason were expecting their second child. Elisa and Grady were very excited.
She gave birth to a baby girl, Sonia, who is brave and a genius.
As soon as she’d put her newborn daughter in her crib, Sara rolled the wish to get married, so I sent the whole family (minus Sonia) off to Al Simhara for a double wedding.
Here’s the venue I built for the occasion.
After the wedding, Maria and Manon stayed on in Egypt, as Maria had a few tombs left to explore. She started with The Great Sphinx: 1 0 B1 B2. (Sorry about the first two pictures being so distorted! The Sphinx shell was seriously getting in my way.)
Next, she visited the lowest level of the Copper Quarry, where there is a fiery ravine that can only be bypassed by zenoporting across.
Finally, she tackled Abu Simbel, where she found the Eyes of Horus and several rare relics.
While Maria was off exploring, Manon learned snake charming. She got so good at it that she was able to charm a kiss from the king cobra.
Maria and Manon both came back from Egypt pregnant. Maria bought them both pregnancy books and cooked a family meal to celebrate.
Sadly, that night Shirin died of old age. The next morning, Elisa went straight to Leighton’s house to spend the day with him. At first he seemed inconsolable.
But after a few hours, he did manage a small smile.
Elisa eventually left to give Leighton and his children some time to mourn alone. Just as she arrived home, Elisa herself passed away.
Grim was far too happy about this.
The family laid Elisa to rest next to Grady, Clark, and Shirin.
