A Slightly Tipsy Legacy 1.6

Vodka and Whiskey are enjoying winter so far (and the snow days they've been getting off from school), despite the freezing temperatures. The little lake behind the farm has completely frozen over, but Jenever won't let them skate on it for fear that the ice isn't thick enough yet. So they've contented themselves with building angry devil snowmen all over the place.

A Slightly Tipsy Legacy 1.5

Autumn has come to the Tipsy farm, which means that the family will be spending most of their time indoors now instead of outside. To accomodate Jenever's ever-growing family tree, the upstairs of the house has been expanded. Jenever and Sören now have an actual bedroom, as do their sproglets.

A Slightly Tipsy Legacy 1.4

I'm cutting back on the commentary a bit, as I'm not really compos mentis enough to make a whole lot of sense (or try to be funny). So mostly picspam updates for now.

With Jenever busy on the farm, Sören does most of the parenting. How much harder could training a kid be than training some dogs, after all?

A Slightly Tipsy Legacy 1.3

Married life seems to suit Jenever and Sören. Jen doesn't have a TV or other contemporary entertainment, but she does have a truckload of books that she brought along, and they spend most of their evenings reading together. Sören on the sofa, and Jenever in her comfy rocking chair.

A Slightly Tipsy Legacy 1.2

When Sören moved in with Jenever, so did his two dogs: Leffe and Duvel. They are both named after Belgian beers, which will be the naming theme for the Tipsy dogs. 
Leffe (pronounced Lef) was originally an Abbey beer, although it's been bought by a commercial brewery. It's brewed in many varieties such as blond, brown, ruby and tripel.
Duvel (Dou-vel, more or less) is the quintessential Belgian strong golden ale , and one of my favourites. Its name means 'devil' in some Dutch dialects, and refers to its high alcoholic content (8,5%) as well as strong flavour.

A Slightly Tipsy Legacy 1.1

 The weather is harsh in the small village of Twoflower Lake, with snow covering it for almost 6 months out of the year. The soil is hard and rocky at best, and everything from the icy winds that howl through the forests to the late frosts that nip young seedlings in the bud doesn't so much point towards unsuitable farming circumstances as bash you over the head with a flashing neon sign.

Introducing: Jenever Tipsy

Yep, I'm naming my legacy after alcoholic drinks. I like naming schemes, as it makes picking names for the sproglets a whole lot easier. (I originally wanted to do a Cheesy legacy, with everyone named after different cheeses, but I think someone else is already doing that and anyway I have the Picklethorpes in my BaCC on that one now).
Why alcoholic drinks? There's enough varieties out there that I won't run out of names anytime soon, and noone that I know of is using it as a naming scheme. Cue end of contemplation.

Founder Jenever Tipsy (or Jen for short) is named after the spirit my hometown is sort of famous for. It comes in a myriad of flavours, from basic ones like lemon and apple to whacky stuff like chocolate and traditional sweets. In its original form however, it's a highly alcoholic juniper-flavoured spirit distilled from grain.

Right, enough alcoholic factoids, time for introductions.

Legacy Plans

 I'm going to take a break from the BaCC for a little bit, as work is quite stressful at the moment and I'm coming home exhausted pretty much every night. I think my updates have been suffering because of it, and I'd rather put it aside for a while until I have enough energy to give it the sort of updates it deserves.
I'm not feeling much like doing the (rather boring and repetitive) posing for my Megahood Makeovers either, or building for Angler's Cove (lot shrinking headaches!), so I've decided to finally get on with that Legacy that I've been thinking about starting for quite a while now. It'll be nice to just play for a while and concentrate on a single family.

As I simply can't bring myself to play a legacy in an empty hood, I've quickly put together a neighbourhood for it to take place in, based on my Maple Lake neighbourhood terrain. I plopped various of Twoflower's lots in it, and gave it the fabulously original name of Twoflower Lake. It has a spring/fall/winter/winter rotation, and is supposed to be a rustic and pine-filled place up north somewhere. I'm currently in the process of making some townies for it (fun!) and figuring out who should be my founder.
I read about a particular legacy ruleset I wanted to follow a while back, but I seem to have lost my link to it. It had different challenges for every generation, the first was farming I believe, and the second business or something similar. If anyone could point me towards that post, I'd be very grateful :)

Now enough babbling, and on with the picspam!
