Round 1: The Bustos

Title: Round 1: The Bustos

As soon as I opened the lot, surprise surprise, Howie is wanting to see Benjamin Long's ghost. If you will recall, Howie picked a fight with Ben Long at the Schurzenjager's during a wedding party. And he lost. *snicker*.

That Howie is just a naturally mean fellah. He only has 3 nice points. But, Howie turned out to be a lot of fun for me. It was obvious Howie was gonna have to be the money earner in the family, but the Elder jobs just don't pay. After buying the house the Bustos had less than $500 simoleons. So they sold stuff off, but Howie still decided he needed more cash. He is, after all, a Fortune Sim with the LTW to have 5 Top Rated Business. I thought, NO WAY.

Howie started going to the park every day to work as the barrista. Here he is serving Celeste Cooprider and Jenn Yessam. On his way out of the park that day, he met up with his old nemisis......

Yep. *sigh* These two just can't seem to get enough of each other. Howie, Howie, Howie...tsk tsk....when will you ever learn? Ben Long is stronger and younger then you are.

Again, never underestimate Ben the Knowledge Sim. Howie lost, again. Howie was so upset he went home. I don't think he will ever learn his lesson. Howie didn't let that embarrassment stop him. The next day he went to the Spa to serve coffee. There he met someone who had a very large pocketbook, and listened to his sick jokes.

That's right, Countess Brittany Knight. Hmmm...she looks like a Knight. :) Howie realized right away she was the woman for him. However, Countess didn't think much of Howie. She politely listened him talk about himself, the great warrior that he is. But she didn't really like him much. They had a negative bolt.

She turned Howie down everytime he asked for a date. But, she would meet him at a public place if called her there and invited her to an outing. GADS..... gossiping about Hans Schurzenjager.

Howie knew it was gonna take some serious wooing to work up the relationship high enough with Countess Brittany so she wouldn't turn him down when he asked for her hand in marriage. It took Howie serving up many cups of coffee to earn two bottles of Love Potion. Yep, he drugged her with his intoxicating kisses and artifically manufactured operatic voice.

Howie manages to lure the Countess to bed. Afterwards, Countess Brittany thanked Howie for the good time. What a stud. You know what this means.

Deciding to strike while the iron was hot, Howie immediately invited friends over for a wedding. It was a Roof Raiser party. Countess Brittany Busto came with just a little over $50,000. Her LTW is to be a Professional Party Guest. Doable. I haven't looked in her backpack yet. Besides turning Howie into a vampire, Countess Brittany indulged Howie with his first business; she bought him the Little and Local in Bluewater. He sells lots of junk in there, and has worked it up to a level 2 business already. Since his aging is turned off, he can take the time to work up to his LTW of 5 top level businesses. Next round, I plan to open a home business for him as well.

In the meantime, Hedwig met Charles Profitt. Now there is a good realtionship! Two bolts! I mentioned before I might change Charles's aspiration in Uni. I don't think so now. Meet the future Mr. and Mrs. Charles Profitt! (Wow...they both have pointy ears.)

As for Rufus...he rolled Knowlege. Didn't get his LTW. He will make a good knoweldge Sim.

POINTS this round..... 1 new Sim - Countess Brittany Busto = 1 point.

LOL - your whole town talks about him, huh.

What on earth did Hans DO? The whole town is talking about him! Great strategy for Howie--he's been sipping the elixir in my game.

Yeah, poor Hans. He is the talk of the town. Congrats with marrying ol' Howie off. Watch out for a vampire epidemic though. As soon as I had a vampire take a bite in Area 62 the NPC vampires bite people on the community lots. So beware ;o)

Yeah, the vampires have gone crazy in my test hood where I do short challenges, (Like ISBI) and in the Falls, one of my playable characters was automously bitten when she showed up on a lot when I was playing someone else. (Lillith Capehart) I worked it into the story and kept it. :) I think it is kinda cool.

Vampire!Business Owner Howie. I didn't think to do that - but top five businesses will take a while. And I have to do it with Shasta Norwood.

Good luck is all I can say.
