Skills Legacy Gameplay, Part 12

I’m a little embarrassed to admit that it’s been about a year and a half since I last updated this legacy! I’ve just been really tired, and not feeling inspired to finish up the builds I needed to proceed with this save file.

Anyway, it’s back now, and I apologise for the delay. I’ll try to keep a better balance from now on between this legacy, my Snordwich Chronicles, my Barnacle Bay builds, and other miscellaneous uploads.

And now for a quick refresher, since it’s been so long: in each generation of this legacy, I have my heir explore three skills, and only these three. I try to do most of the opportunities and skill challenges, except where they’re buggy or really boring, and/or I’ve already been through them in my EP Legacy.

I change world every two generations. We’re currently on generation three, and all set to move to Shang Simla, after two generations spent into Riverview.

This is our current heir, Carter Simovitch-Grisby. His traits are disciplined, photographer’s eye, adventurous, no sense of humour, family-orientated, hopeless romantic, and social butterfly.

Snordwich Chronicles, LXXI: Granting Wishes

It is Thursday morning when John Cecil sees his guests off. It has been a joy to spend time with old friends, and to see his and Sir Thomas’ households united in marriage.

He is 620 days old now. His own father passed away peacefully of old age at 640. But he refuses to walk with a stick, or to drink less on feast days, or to give up his weekly hunts. He does not want to think about what the family name might suffer when he is gone and Snordwich is left to his son Roger, still as awkward and ungovernable as ever.

But Roger and Matilda’s son Edmund gives Lord Snordwich some hope for his legacy. The boy excels at languages and letters, and especially at music. Whatever his tutors throw at him, he practices until he has it perfect.

Snordwich Chronicles, LXX: Return to Plumbob Hall

A thin layer of snow coats the ground as Fabyan Cecil rides up to his father’s manor.

It has been almost a year since he was sent away to serve the Bishop of Crafthole. He is not looking forward to seeing his family again. His elder brother Roger will be irritable and oafish, and will taunt Fabyan with everything that he, their father’s first born, will one day inherit. Their father himself will be playing the generous host, showing more affection to the sons of the lesser gentry than to his own blood. He will have read Fabyan’s letters to him, but will not be pleased by anything in them.
