The Sims series of games lends itself to storytelling. The characters often seem to take on personalities of their own, and the gameplay contains endless fodder for creating and telling the Sims’ stories.

On this site, I’ll be relaying the stories my Sims tell me.

Incidentally, I’m Patrick. Trick on the Sims forums and IMTrick in the Gallery, where you can find several of my Sims and builds.

About the Poindexter Legacy

Beginning with founder Edison Poindexter, this game will be following the rules of the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge as created and maintained at The Sims Legacy Challenge. The following succession laws will be used:

Gender Law: Strict Equality

The founder may be of either gender. However, only children of the opposite gender to the founder are eligible to be named heir. This repeats itself for the next generation (the next heir must be a different gender than the previous heir) so that each generation will have alternating-genders as heirs.

Bloodline Law: Strict Traditional

To be eligible to be named heir, a child must be naturally born from their previous-generation parents and be able to trace an unbroken bloodline back to the founder. Adopted children may never be named heir.

Heir Law: Exemplar (Geek)

At the beginning of the challenge, name a single trait. This trait must be one of your founder’s three traits. Any eligible heir that has this trait will gain the title of heir. If a single generation has no children with this trait or more than one exemplar, follow the First Born rule.

Species Law: Tolerant

The species of the child has no impact on their eligibility for heir status.
