The Goodman ISBI Patriarchy – Chapter 9 [A Lot of Nothing]

Eyyy welcome back to the Goodman ISBI Patriarchy! Last time, Odin and his new wife Addyson had a couple of babies and adopted another, giving us two eligible heir choices and one spare.

(I apologize if this chapter seems a bit sporadic. Not much happened and I was just killing time till birthdays so it’s basically just screenshots and notes lol)

Let’s see what the family is up to.

Odin, our reining TH, is having a nap.


Addyson is using the bathroom, sorry about that.


Jason is getting some food while Reece and Valerie hang out at the table.


I add some fun stuff for the backyard since it’s summertime.
*spoilers* The only thing that gets played with is the dollhouse.


Odin is still a successful comedy star.


Addy and Jason team up on cleaning the house since our maids are so flaky.


Addy hangs out with Valerie and Reece.


Edith comes to visit but since Odin isn’t home, no one can let her in.


Val is the first to find the fun stuff.


Reece seems to have found something under Jason’s bed.
Jason doesn’t seem too bothered.


Mom to the rescue to spray the monsters away.


Instead of grabbing all the yummy leftovers in the fridge, Jason grabs a spoiled plate of French Toast to eat. He eats the whole thing and is nauseated after. That’s what you get, kiddo.


Izumi comes to haunt!


Valerie loves the dollhouse outside. Izumi hangs out with the only grandchild she got to meet before passing.


Reece joins, he also loves dolls.


The dolls in this house are particularly cute. Little chipmunk girl :3


Odin hangs out with Jason while he has some food.


Then he hangs out with Reece and teaches him some chess.


Addy and Val have girl-time in the backyard.
Addy likes the dolls just as much as the kids lol.


Jason finds his dad and brother and chats while they play.


Odin works on his jokes on the computer, which helps him level up the comedy skill.


The kids get projects and I set them down in the yard. Jason and Reece work on theirs together.


They finish them within the day. I’m pretty proud!


Odin has a lot of skill points and I never actually spent any of Dom’s when I controlled him. So I take the time to use his now. I give him the Savant trait and the Frugal trait. That way he’ll gain skills faster and the bills will be cheaper.


I have so many random pictures. I was very scatterbrained this chapter.


The kids get home from school and instead of going inside and sleeping, Reece decides to stand outside till he passes out, giving us a fail. -5

((All the kids usually come home from school exhausted because they wake up in the middle of the night from a monster under the bed and stay up till school starts.))


Non-Torch-Holder Family Time.


My heart…
Dom and Odin share a loving hug between father and son.


Someone, I wish I knew who, smashed the dollhouse and Odin has to fix it.


Reece is pleased as punch to have it back.


These two love each other very much. I’m happy my boys are so close.


Odin and Addy’s birthdays fall on Harvestfest so Odin starts cooking.


This is the couples birthday cake, it is also the cake that helped Odin max out his cooking skill. Fun!


Turkey time!


Reece grabbed a plate before Odin called everyone over so he finishes first. It’s nice to see the whole family together though.

Man-Maid is in the background. We have to constantly rehire maids, it’s so annoying. They come by for 3 or 4 days straight then never come again.


The boys have another hug after eating.





Then Addy and Odin blow out their candles and become adults. I see a lot of Izumi in Odin when I look at him in this picture.


Jason does extra-credit work all on his own. He’d done his homework himself as well without Odin asking him to. I try not to do that every day and just hope they get the picture and work on it themselves. It works sometimes haha.


Reece finds the Jungle Gym.


Valerie and Jason have a chat.


Valerie does homework. Bless.


Izumi haunts and isn’t feeling very happy, so she breaks the sink and the shower in the boys’ bathroom.


The kids all have B’s in school at this point, which is pretty great. School projects help a ton.


Somehow, Valerie gets by the locked door to the basement and mourns Izumi. She never met Dom, unfortunately. I think Dom would have loved being around grandkids while he was alive.


Here’s why the kids don’t sleep at all. One gets a monster and they both wake up. Then a monster shows up in Val’s bed and she wakes up too. Then they’re up all night and go to school exhausted.


Dom watches Odin fix things that he broke -_-.

I keep getting notifications that he and Izumi’s souls are moving on but they just keep coming back. No one usually mourns the urns because I keep the door locked but they just don’t wanna leave.

Also something to note, Odin gets the Pristine Reputation at this point. He doesn’t do anything noteworthy and his celebrity level is just steadily going down but his reputation is very high.


All the kids go through a phase. While Jason and Valerie just wanna be loud and listen to music, Reece starts being a picky eater. He doesn’t wanna eat actual food, just snacks from the fridge. I’ve never seen this before so I was pretty fascinated by it


I put a violin out for the kids with two out of three having a musical phase and Jason is the first to grab it.


Someone, dunno if it was Val or not, broke the dollhouse again. I end up selling it. Addyson plays with it more than the kids so let them figure out how to play with the swings.


More computer fixing. Odin needs it for his skilling.


Here’s Reece having some chips instead of all the other food in the fridge. I’ve never seen a sim do that on their own when there’s food in the fridge.


My cutie, Valerie, is so well-mannered. Always doing everyone’s dishes.


We end up getting a butler because maids suck and never come back after working less than a week.

I put a bed for her in here, the basement entrance, and made it accessible to the butler only.


Odin and Jason hang out while he skills.


Addy, Izumi and Reece watch TV.


Jason is the first of the three to get an A in school, earning us +5 points.


Butler has been beaten with the CC stick lmao. That’s some outlandish makeup for such an old woman.


Jason and Reece are good friends and they’re both just friends with their sister. I’m glad the kids are getting along.


I forget about Jason’s lazy trait until I see him do stuff like this. Very much an Izumi throwback.


Winterfest arrives and Valerie’s birthday falls on it.


Cake is ready.


Before cake, we’ll open presents.



Here’s our lovely spare, Valerie with her teen makeover.

She rolls Musical Genius as her aspiration and gets the Muser trait to join that. She also gets the Geek trait to join Self-Assured.

I think she’s adorable, but looks a lot like her mother.


We get a new creepy Father Winter that wants to hang out with the teenage girl in the house.


This shot signifies Odin maxing out his Comedy skill and completing his aspiration. That earns us a solid +10 points! Odin is free to do whatever he wants now haha. He’s still TH, but at least he can just chill.


Fast forward to the boys’ birthday and Reece wakes up and wants to be a furry. Poor dear, just nervous about becoming a teenager. I really hope this doesn’t transition into teen-hood.

We don’t have a party or anything. It’s a Friday and I’m ready for the chapter to be over so we just cut straight to cake.


*tries not to laugh*

Here we go, our heir candidates!

Jason gets his makeover first, being a little older, and gains the Freelance Botanist aspiration. That comes with the Collector trait and he gets the Unflirty trait to join his Lazy trait. Very close to his father in looks and the boy is skinny as hell.

Now before you’re confused as hell by this next screenshot, I want to explain.
I’ve had a certain play for Reece since they became a child. Reece has always had a higher pitched voice than their brother and liked dolls/stuffed animals a lot more. I also thought they had very feminine features decided that if this continued into teen-hood, I would roll with it. So…

Meet Reece!
Reece gains the Renaissance Sim aspiration, which comes with the Quick Learner trait. They also get the Romantic trait to join their Cheerful trait.

Reece is still eligible for heir, they were born male, after all, but once Reece is an adult, they will transition to the point of being able to carry children. Whether or not they are gay will be up to them. I figured if Reece were to be passed the torch, we would go out and see what sticks.

I do enjoy their appearance though. Reece will be using they/them or she/her pronouns from this point on and I will do my best to write those out.

There will probably be an heir vote next chapter, or I’ll just pick my favorite. It’s almost obvious who my favorite is lmao.

I hope you guys enjoyed this chapter and I hope there was no offence taken at all. I come from a place of compassion and understanding for people in Reece’s situation and accept and love you all! I am just so happy that the sims allows this kind of stuff to happen without the use of mods. It’s so progressive and I wanted to be able to represent a community that I’m not a part of and I hope that I represent them well.

Thank you guys again for taking the time to read, see you guys next time ❤

The Goodman ISBI Patriarchy – Chapter 8 [Babies and Toddlers and Kids, Oh My!]

Hello hello! Welcome back to the Goodman ISBI Patriarchy! Last time, Odin married a  pretty woman named Addyson Dennison and our founder, Dominic, passed away.

Let’s start off with a sim check!

Izumi and Addy hang out. Izumi is incredibly sad about Dom’s passing but Addy is completely oblivious to it. Even Odin has a sad emote but Addy doesn’t. I’m going to assume it’s because they weren’t very familiar with each other.


Aww, poor thing 😦


Here’s Odin lookin sad as he sleeps.


Izumi, who is under the blankets here, also has the Widow Moodlet. The description is ‘from losing a true love’. That made me so sad ;-;.
She spends a lot of time in bed, crying.


On a lighter note, Addy is just glowing with pregnancy.


Odin, who looks pretty sad, comes home from his second day of work with a promotion!


Damn, Addy is really pregnant.


While both Odin and Izumi working, Addy starts the labor process.


When enough time passes, she makes her way to the nursery and pops out a baby!


It’s a girl.

Why?!

Oh whatever, everyone meet Valerie Goodman. We get some points for a single birth.


Addyson does a fairly good job taking care of Valerie on her own.


Odin happily meets his first-born and helps with the childcare.


Dom! 😀
Of course you’d come haunting the night your first grandchild is born.


He spends his haunting time straightening up around his house. Miss yooou :3


When Addy wakes up, she hangs out with her dearly departed father-in-law.



Time to work on baby #2.


Later, Addy has a nap in the nursery. I didn’t realize people could nap on that little piece of furniture, cute!


I get a notification about Izumi. She doesn’t have much time left. I’m both happy and sad. I’m glad she can be reunited with Dom so soon, but it sucks to lose both of them.


Odin gets another promotion and moves onto the Comedy career track. That helps his aspiration milestone! Just gotta wait for him to level up his comedy skill to complete this milestone.


Once again, I get no notification of Addy being pregnant.
We have baby #2 on the way though!


She continues to impress me with her great autonomous parenting.


Odin completes another milestone for his aspiration, earning us some points.
He’s just one milestone away from completing his aspiration entirely. He just needs to perform three comedy routines(which will be easy, he already has four written out) and max his comedy skill out.


Birthday time for little Valerie!


Look at this little ball of cute!
Valerie rolls Angelic as her toddler trait.
I can’t wait to see her as she grows up. She’s gonna be stunning, I’ll bet.


Daddy and daughter dance off!


Afterward, silly-times with mom!


Addy autonomously starts trying to teach Valerie to talk.


Odin nails another promotion.



He celebrates with playtime!


Izumi’s time is almost up 😦


Oh dear.


She dies right in front of the door, blocking anyone from mourning her!


Addy: Izumi??? Are you okay in there?!


Grim: Uh… Should I tell her?
-_-



There she goes.


Yo, Grim? Where’s her urn?!
Grim: I dunno, that bathroom is small.
FFFFFFFFF

It actually took a few minutes to find her. She ended up in the family inventory.

But I got her. She now rests next to her husband, Dom.


Izumi Goodman, Spouse of First Generation Founder
Aspiration – Master Mixologist – Not Completed
Reputation – Neutral
Fame – Unknown
Skills Maxed – None
Husband – Dominic Goodman (deceased)
Children – Lillian, Edith and Odin
Grandchildren – Valerie


Valerie is extremely upset about her grandma passing away.

Odin also has a sad moodlet but Addy, once again, is fine.


Addy goes into labor with baby #2.


She makes her way over to a bassinet to pop.


A boy! 😀
Meet Jason Goodman!
We get more points with another single birth!


How sweet :3


Valerie is very happy to meet her new sibling.


I decide to try something I’ve never done in TS4, and that’s adopt a baby.


Meet Reece Goodman. I picked the first baby boy on the list of adoptable children. I’m going to go ahead and award myself more points for another single baby entering the household.


This could have been a mistake, but who knows!


Look at little Valerie napping in her chair, awwww.


Some time and literally no events of substance pass and it’s the boys’ birthday!


Here’s Jason, he gets the Fussy trait!


Here’s Reece, he gets the Silly trait!


Addy plays with her boys.


I think they’re just precious.


Family time while the maid straightens up the house!


I really do love Valerie. She’s precious.


Odin fixes the television. Way too expensive to replace. We got this as a gift, I believe.


Hi Izumi! 😀
That Gloomy trait seems to be hitting her hard on her first haunting.


She’s still adorable though.


She does frighten a stinky Valerie though.


Later, Valerie and Jason hang out.


Awww, we get our first fail in a while with poor Jason. Odin was trying to potty train him and he got off the potty to go pass out on the floor. Poor thing. I’m not even mad at him :(.


Birthday time for this little bean.




Here she is, pre-makeover.


There we are, much happier.
Valerie rolls Rambunctious Scamp as her aspiration and Self-Assured as her trait. I believe both her parents have that!


Weird place to hang out, kids haha.


I get an opportunity card for Odin. He has a chance to perform his stand-up live, or record it for a television debut. If record, he gets promoted to the top of his career and gains a star of fame. I select it and Odin is now a TV Comedy Star!
I don’t gain any points for Torch Holders topping their career, but I’m still pleased!



Dom haunts and while I’m a little worried to see him angry, he cheers up as soon as he turns on the television.


The boys have a birthday soon. There isn’t too much happening between birthdays, this chapter.


Edith comes to visit on the double-birthday-day and gives little Jason a hug.


She hangs out with her little brother while he bakes the boys a cake.



Here we go!


Here’s Jason!
Jason gets the Social Butterfly aspiration and the Lazy trait.


Here’s Reece!
Reece gets the Whiz Kid aspiration and the Cheerful trait!

The boys are very different, but I love them equally. They’ll both be up for heir when they’re older, so we’ll be having an heir poll this generation!
Next time, we’ll play through all the kids going through their childhood until they’re all teens so we can have an heir poll! Thanks so much for reading, I hope you all enjoyed! ❤

The Goodman ISBI Patriarchy – Chapter 7 [A Wedding and the End]

Gee, that title is ominous, isn’t it?

Welcome back to the Goodman ISBI Patriarchy! Last time, we got a buuuunch of points and Odin officially became the torch holder.

This time, I’m jumping right into things!
Sim check!



The house sure is empty.
Everyone is doing well after Odin’s birthday party!

Later that night, it’s a real blizzard out but I send Odin out to a karaoke bar to meet girls.

Hey, she looks really different!

This girl is Alex Moyer. She’s a young adult, has freckles and a natural tooth gap :O
She has very interesting features and looks like she’d be Odin’s type.


There were definitely other choices in the bar that night. Both of these girls were also Odin’s age so I had backups.


After they talked a bit, I put Alex in CAS and gave her a makeover. When I got back into game, she vanished. -_-
Odin had to call her to invite her to hangout at ANOTHER bar.
He ordered her a drink and she promptly left. Why did I waste my time making you cute?!


I feel the same way, Odin. Drink the pain away.


The night wasn’t a total loss though. Odin ends up meeting Addyson Dennison.


Even though her name is spelled in such an awful way, she’s super pretty and seems so sweet.


These two become friends very quickly with Odin’s “polite introduction”.


After a couple successful flirts, it gets late and I send Odin home. He looks pleased with himself.


Winterfest arrives and Odin starts decorating.


Odin and his parents light the tree together.



Afterward, they sing Winterfest songs together.


Odin invites his sisters and Addyson over to celebrate with them. It looks like Lillian is flirting with her.
LILLIAN STOP!


Odin gives Addyson his earbuds as a gift. He never uses them so why not?


Lillian and Edith end up leaving early, but Addyson spends the day over and has dinner with the family.


D: A new Father Winter.
His beard doesn’t match lmao

The next day, Addyson calls Odin and says she can’t keep him out of her mind! She invites him out for a breakfast date. He happily accepts!

They look cute as they wait on service.


The whole time they’re conversing, this family(I think it’s the Pancakes) are joining in. Why does the game make that an option? Who would have full conversations with other tables like this??


The food is great!



First kiss!


This screenshot is supposed to show that they’re dating now.
I’m just bad.


Odin “attempted to seduce” and did this pelvic thrust move which made me giggle like no one’s business.


It works though haha
And they don’t seem to mind their audience.
The little girl was so triggered by them making out near her haha.


Little girl: Mom…







So that was hella easy.
Do most first dates go like this? Haha, you go from first kiss to proposal xD


These two are so sweet.


Odin: Come live with me and my folks?
Addy: Are you sure?
Odin: You get a snazzy makeover.
Addy: I’m in.


Here she is!
Addyson Dennison (Soon to be Goodman)
StrangerVille Mystery Aspiration
Traits: Home Turf, Loves Outdoors, Hot-Headed and Self-Assured.


Doesn’t take long for me to get the portraits done. Another 5 points for me!


I now have a little shack on the back corner of the lot that lowers down into a basement mausoleum. Here’s where the urns will end up going as well. I can always make it bigger when we need more room. It’s literally just a long rectangle.


Sorry for the toilet picture, but at this point I get a notification that Dom won’t be around much longer 😦


These two are like soulmates. I dunno if it’s just them having a shared trait, but it’s great.


Dom and Addy hang out while Odin and Izumi sleep.


Odin practices comedy.


One of his milestone whims was to be funny to five sims. He only needed one more sim so he ran outside and told this woman a quick knock knock joke and finished a milestone! Points!

The next milestone will be done when he joins the Entertainment career, which will happen after he gets married to Addy.



Odin heads next door and meets Addyson’s parents. Lisa and Gilberto Dennison. I’ve never heard of these sims but they must be a pre-made couple.

I wanted Odin to meet them so he could invite them to the wedding. Speaking of the wedding…



Everyone’s there in their formal wear. I have to say, I love Addy a little more now that I see she’s gonna get married in a black dress. My goth heart sings.


They really are cute.

Wedding montage!








We have newlyweds, guys!
I was happy to see everyone stopped to watch the ceremony. Was great.


Dom hugged Odin after and it made me so happy.




This is the first time the cake, plate and forks haven’t vanished when doing this haha.



The party ends with the family all socializing and just enjoying each other’s company. Brings me joy ;-;



Gotta work on the next generation though. Chop chop!


That’s the face of a man that finally got to woohoo.
At least he wasn’t a young adult for a super long time haha.


Odin gets a job in the Entertainer career and finishes his second milestone, which means more points!

He starts writing jokes on the computer to build up work performance.


Nothing like dancing in the kitchen with your new wife.



You thought you could hide it from me? What are you, a puppy?!
I have my first fail in a while. Looks like Addy couldn’t hold it. At least she didn’t pee in bed haha.


I get another notification about Dom’s life ending soon. I am super broken up about it but I’m glad he got to watch Odin, his best friend, get married.


Odin needs to write three comedy routines for his next milestone so we get started.


Addy chats with Odin while he works.


Also, hi? Pregnant? What?
Addy: I just didn’t wanna make a big deal.
MAKE A BIG DEAL, DAMN IT!

I legit got no notification or anything for this. I just looked at her and she had a belly. Third generation on the way!




We ring in the new year with the couples being autonomously cute.


The next morning, Addy makes me angry by how cute she is in the morning. Pregnant and stunning, weh.



Addy and Izumi support Odin has he practices telling jokes.


Odin practices violin and Dom acts all lovey dovey to his wife.


Suddenly, I yell NOOOO at my computer.


Dom: It’s time, creator.
No! I refuse! Not allowed! D:


Dom: It’s okay, I just wanna lie down.
I’LL BUY YOU A NICE NEW BED TO LIE IN, DON’T GO!


Dom: Bah, this is fine. I got nice carpet for the girls.
IT’S GONNA BE SO WEIRD TO PUT A BABY ROOM WHERE YOU DIED


Dom: This is a lot of pictures for little, old me.
;________; waaaaaah


Dom: Bye, kiddo.


Izumi: Dominic, no!


Odin and Addy don’t seem to notice Dom at all. It actually broke my heart. Odin just leaves to go to work and Addy is just confused af.


Addy: Izumi, what’s wrong?
Izumi: *gross sobbing*


Addy then leaves the room and Izumi is alone with her tears and her dead husband.










There he goes.


Poor Izumi. She’s really upset.


Grim: Thanks for the legacy founder, those sell for the big bucks on Reaper-Ebay.
I hate you D:



Dominic Goodman, Founder
Passed Away on the First Day of Spring
Aspiration – Successful Lineage (Not Completed)
Reputation – Good
Fame – Unknown Status
Skills Maxed – Painting, Parenting and Cooking
Wife – Izumi
Children – Lillian, Edith and Odin


Grim: Peace, guys. *poofs*
Addy: This movie is garbage.
Izumi: *in tears*

Well, that’s where I’m ending this chapter, folks. I’m feeling awful about Dominic’s death, but I know he wasn’t an unhappy sim. That at least gives me some solace. He lived a great life and loved his wife and kids so dearly. He had maxed relationships with all of them and was best friends with his son, Odin.  I am really happy I was able to get Dom and Izumi to tie the knot. Even though his Aspiration wasn’t completed, he was an all-around happy sim that didn’t seem to have any regrets in life.

Bye for now, guys. ;-;

The Goodman ISBI Patriarchy – Chapter 6 [Birthdays, A Marriage and the Torch Passed]

Hello hello! Welcome back to the Goodman ISBI Patriarchy! Last time, the house filled with teens and we had our second chapter in a row with no fails.

Let’s see what the family gets into today.


Well, the house is gone.
Dom looks like the only person bothered by this.
Also, Izumi is at work.


New house! Found this one in the gallery and it was just as much money as the family had after selling almost all of their possessions.


I thought I took full tour pics but I suppose I didn’t. The founder photos are hanging in the living room for now. If the family makes back some money, I’ll build a separate building behind the house for urns/portraits.



So there are these strange light bulbs that show up over everyone’s heads when they are working on random skills. I looked through the house settings and found that whoever built the house put lot traits in. I promptly removed them so I didn’t cheat.


Dom has a new area to paint. It’s pretty scenic.


Sometimes I forget that Lillian is Erratic.
Then she meows and hisses in fear.
So quirky.


Here’s a pretty good shot of the kitchen. Ignore the light bulbs, I fix it shortly after.


Poor Odin heads to school with a full bladder and smelling very ripe.






I enjoy taking pictures of the family doing random things/socializing.


Oh hey, it’s Izumi. First time seeing her lmao.
She’s been working and was stuck standing outside all exhausted so Dom went out there to convince her to come to bed.



Easiest way to get a dummy spouse to bed lol.


The teens are in school and Izumi is working so Dominic gets to paint in peace.


Dom loves helping the kids with homework. He gets a great confident moodlet when he does it and they finish homework so much faster.


Here’s a sudden change! It’s Lillian’s birthday!
Dominic makes her a cheesecake. She’s quirky so she gets a quirky birthday cake!



She’s still pretty in her quirky way.
She gains the Bookworm trait(LIKE DOM) to go with Erratic and Outgoing. If you don’t recall, Lillian has the Friend of the World aspiration which comes with the Gregarious trait.
She also gained the Good Manners trait, getting us 5 points!


Here’s a nice CAS photo of Lillian.
I have her saved in my library, in case anyone would like me to upload her to the gallery. She also lives in a little starter home in Newcrest so we’ll see her again soon.


Odin decided to fire up the coffee machine and drink some disgusting coffee instead of sleeping.

I need to mention here, since I put it in my notes, that Father Winter calls both Dominic and Odin every day now. Sometimes at the same time. He calls at least 5 times a day and at the most 10-15 times. It’s so creepy!


He then runs outside to see a pretty teen named Reyna Bheeda and Vladislaus Straud hanging out near the house.



She gets a cute makeover and I hope that Odin can invite her to his birthday party. Definitely a potential spouse.


Girls, cheesecake is not a balanced breakfast.
I wish it was though ._.


Lillian’s back already! Dom is so happy to see her.




All the kids have a little hangout with dad while he paints.


After everyone goes to sleep, Lillian sticks around and watches TV. I don’t mind, it’s not like she’s bothering anyone.


The first snow! :O


Izumi isn’t impressed.

What you are about to see will shock you. It was very random and I don’t know what I was thinking when I did it.
Context: Kids are at school and Dominic and Izumi were being real quick, autonomously flirting on the couch. Again, I don’t know why I did it, but I was feeling the romance of the first snow… So…

Dom: C’mon Izumi, what are we waiting for?


Dom: Let’s do this before we’re so old we forget each other.

(real romantic)




Izumi finally accepts.







They get married in the living room.


Then they celebrate the way adults do.


My first thunderstorm ever! Poor Dom gets a scared moodlet from the thunder and lightning. So cute.


Study buddies!


Dom is a one-star celebrity and because he continuously eats excellent quality dishes, he gains the Refined Palate celebrity quirk. This comes and goes with his celebrity level, since he mostly only has the star from selling paintings.


One more picture of my founder looking young-ish because…


It’s his and Edith’s birthday.


The kids are still in school so we’ll celebrate when they’re home.


Dom works on plumbing upgrades while he waits.

Here we go!


Dom first, age before beauty.


There he is, look at my sweet founder. Bless.


Edith next, her summer hat is stopping us from seeing her face.


Not much change, I still think she’s really cute.
Edith gets the Dance Machine trait to go with Goofball and Outgoing. Her aspiration is Vampire Family and she gets the Domestic trait to go with that.
Edith also gains the Happy Toddler trait, the Good Manners trait and the Responsible trait! More points!


Edith moves in with Lillian. I didn’t upload her to my gallery though. I’ll have to go back into game after uploading this chapter to upload her in case anyone wants her!


Harvestfest rolls around and Dominic makes a wonderful Tofurkey to celebrate.
I have to say, I’m gonna be pretty excited to get a sim that can eat meat haha. I will probably still have Odin cook vegetarian dishes for his dad.


Hi-dee hoooo! Let’s eat! *ding ding*


Lillian appreciates Dom for cooking good food.


Meanwhile, Odin takes his full belly and works on extra credit work in his sisters’ old room. I’m happy he chooses to do this on his own. I need him to get an A before his birthday so Dom can progress in his aspiration more. I really don’t think he’ll complete it, but at least I can say I tried my best.


So at this point, I’m conflicted. I hate seeing such a drastic age-difference between these two. I’ve decided that Izumi will be aging up with Odin so these two don’t have to spend too much time apart. I hope that’s alright with everyone. It’s not like she’d be taking up too much room. I’m only going on the rule that I need at least one baby of each gender per generation, I just get attached to these pixels and it makes me sad to think that she’d have to exist without him for a long time.


These two just hang out, it’s cute.


More homework help, we’re still working towards that A.


Edith comes to visit!


Izumi is happy to see her daughter.


Later, she socializes with passerby’s.


Dom maxes out his painting skill with this cool painting.
He now has Cooking, Parenting and Painting maxed. Gourmet Cooking is at 7 and Handiness is at 9.


Here we have it, a day before Odin’s birthday, he gets an A. That scores us another 5 points!


He’s also absolutely enraged from a mood swing. He’s walking fully!


Dom calms him down so his heart doesn’t explode.



The family have a little hangout day. We’ll see Lillian tomorrow because…


Birthday time. Odin gets a pretty cake. Some might say it’s a wedding cake, I might say that too. It’s okay though, it’s fancy!


Dom not only bakes the cake, but he cooks a bunch of vegetarian-friendly foods for the birthday party. Meatless Monte Cristo Sandwiches, Faux Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus and a Tofu Chicken dish that I can’t remember the name of lol.



This is a small party, only family invited. I planned on inviting that pretty teen from earlier but she’s no longer in Odin’s relationship panel. Sure, Father Winter we never forget, but potential spouses just escape our minds -_-.

It is nice to see the girls in their party clothes though.


Like I said before, Izumi goes first.


There, she matches her new husband now. Dom in the background is giving zero fucks and I love it.


Dom and Lillian are still oblivious when the heir steps up to the cake.


There he is, our new torch holder.
Odin gains the Self-Assured trait to go with Music Lover and Geek.
He has the Gregarious trait as well to go with his Joke Star aspiration.
He also gained the Good Manners trait and the Responsible trait from his upbringing, which scores us more points!

Now that Odin is a young adult, we also get points for randomizing every trait and aspiration for an entire generation.
I also get points for not using any satisfaction points from my spares this generation!


And with this hug, we officially pass the torch from father to son. Dominic’s time as torch holder has ended and I’m a little sad. I’ll miss playing him a lot.

I am going to end this chapter here though.
Next time, Odin gets a job and hopefully starts scoping out potential spouses. I hope you guys enjoyed! Thanks so much for reading! ❤

The Goodman ISBI Patriarchy – Chapter 5 [Little Accomplishments and Lots of Pictures]

I’m really belting these out, huh?

Welcome back to the legacy! Last time I had NO FAILS and our little heir, Odin became a child.

Let’s see what everyone is doing.




I couldn’t be asked to get a picture of Izumi lol.
Everyone is pretty much doing what they were doing last time.


The kids get along so well. I love getting shots of them just chillin and socializing.



Dom has almost maxed cooking at this point. He made some tofu stir fry. Sounds delish right now. Probably more delish than usual because I need to order dinner lol.


The stir fry was so epic, it broke the stove.


Just a picture of everyone sleeping because it’s so nice to see in an ISBI.


Lillian works on her project all on her own as Dom paints.


Dom and Edith come socialize while Lillian works.


This minestrone marks Dominic maxing his cooking skill. Torch Holder doesn’t get points for maxing skills, only Non-Torch Holders. So Dom just gets to enjoy yummy vegetarian food forever.


I eat up pictures like this. So cute.

New Years Eve time!

Dom and the kids watch the countdown channel together.






The family counts down the ball dropping together and celebrate at midnight.
We had a pretty great New Year celebration. Dominic got all his goals done and everyone else had a good day as well. No negative moodlets to start the new year with.


This happy picture of Dom marks the first day of Spring. It’s been one in-game year since the legacy started!


Dom paints a lot. His large, classic paintings sell for more than double what the canvas costs, which is great.



I dip into the family funds and make the girls their own room. I rearranged the kitchen to fit another door.


The old room is just for Odin now. I do end up switch the girls room to another color.


Lillian gains enough responsibility to earn the “responsible” trait when she becomes a young adult. If she can keep it up till then, I’ll get points!


Lillian’s project is all done and she gets some nice extra credit!


I hope these extra socializing pictures aren’t obnoxious. I just think they’re sweet.


I thought this was a cute idea. I wish I could just paint self-portraits ;-;
I bet I’m a noob and there’s a way to do it but I’m too noobish.


Dom takes a nap and dodges the multiple calls (I’M TALKING UP TO 10 CALLS A DAY) he gets from Father Winter. The dude is creepy! They literally had one or two interactions, counting him giving him a present, and he calls him all the time!


This little girl has a birthday coming up!


Dom tells Edith she needs to stay home from school because she’s sick. She’s all stuffed up at the moment.


Then he puts her to bed. Awww


She definitely looks better after she got some extra sleep.



Some random pictures of Edith on her day home from school.

Fast forward!

Birthday time!


Here’s our birthday girl!
Lillian gains the Friend of the World aspiration, the Gregarious trait and the Erratic trait to join her already present Outgoing trait.


I gave Odin a stereo to appease his ‘Music lover’ trait and the girls use it the most.


Dom helps Odin out with homework and finishes one part of his aspiration milestone.


The boys then become best friends. So cute :3


I dunno why I have this picture. I think it’s cute that Dom loves his kids.

In other news!


Mausoleum is done and it’s a bit small, but I have a spot for the urns now. At least I’m prepared.


While the rest of the family sleeps, Odin plays The Sims. A little meta, but alright.



Odin then has to cozy up to Dom because Izumi is obsessed with snatching up her kids beds before they can sleep.


Izumi gets a new look since Edith’s birthday is in a day or so at this point and since Izumi was so much younger than Dominic after all the pregnancies I decided that she’s gonna get the cake treatment after her daughter.


I apologize for the shower picture, but I needed to vent about how triggering it is to see CC on sims when they shower. I’ve learned long ago how to get rid of stuff like this using Master Controller. It’s a life saver.
Rant over.


Love day arrives. Doesn’t Izumi look excited :l



They do a bit of romancing after the kids go to school.


Wouldn’t you want your significant other to make a face like that right before woohoo? Especially if you hadn’t woohoo’d since your youngest was conceived?


The kids are home, they look thrilled.
Probably thinking about what their parents were up to on Love Day while they were at school. haha


The boys socialize while Dom bakes Edith a cake.


Yay birthday time!


Edith: I am the night!
Eek!

Edith rolls Vampire Family as her aspiration. Fucking weird.
Her aspiration comes with the Domestic trait, fitting.
She also gets the Outgoing trait to go with her Goofball trait. Very interesting sim.


The kids still enjoy hanging out. The girls are sweet to their little brother.


They all do homework while Dom paints. I legit have no idea where Izumi is.


Sometimes I forget that Lillian is Erratic until she meows and hisses lmfao.


Oh, there you are. I need to turn these lights down.



Now we can move on.
Izumi is 12 days younger than Dom now. It was close to 20 days before I caked her early.


Dom starts upgrading the plumping to keep it from breaking so often. Can’t really afford to get really fancy stuff yet, so this will do for now.


At first I thought Odin was just doing homework on his own, I found it really nice. Then I realized he did his homework already and he’s just doing extra credit work on a Saturday evening. Bless your heart, child. Ily ❤


I think I only took this picture to show the cool painting before Dom sells it lol


The family keeps themselves busy while Izumi casually naps sitting upright.



Bam, apple pie!


Dom has been working on his Gourmet Cooking skill lately. If this were a normal legacy, I’d probably open a restaurant since I’ve never done it before. He’s really good and cooks excellent quality almost every time.


The kids always ask their dad for advice.


I had whims turned on for like 10 seconds (I get tired of Dom wanting a Bee Box) and saw he wanted to volunteer with his family. I send them all to the nursing home to volunteer.


They’re back, feeling really pleased with what they did. I love that!


The girls are incredibly different in personality and appearance. I legit really like them. I plan on uploading them when they’re young adults so they’re backed up.


While his sisters have girl talk, Odin swings in the background!


Enjoy this picture of a random low-rank celebrity, pregnant and poorly dressed lol.


Also, Don Lothario set up a food stand across the street from the house. I thought that was adorable.


Dom paints his first masterpiece! Check that out :O


I like it. I’ll keep it for now, but if we need money, I’ll see it. It’s worth almost 1,400 simoleons.


Immediately after finishing the first masterpiece, he paints another. He’s level 7 Painting skill and is my first sim ever to accomplish this. Two in a row?!



The kids are home from school and they all brought home projects.
I set them down in the front yard and hope they get them done at some point.


Dom maxes out the Parenting skill and gains the ability to fill up all of a babies needs. That’s pretty useful and I hope he autonomously does it a lot when Odin finally has kids.


Everyone is doing great and in bed at a reasonable hour.


So Dom’s fame goes up from selling so many paintings and Father Winter just walks into the house and goes into the bathroom to stand around and be creepy. I believe the notification I got was “You knew me before you were famous, blah blah”
BOI, GET OUTTA HERE! Dom has ignored like 100 calls since he met you, GET THE HINT!



Izumi keeps with the trend of stealing her kids beds and forces Lillian to sleep on her dad’s bed.


The next day, Lillian starts on her project.


Odin’s birthday arrives and Dominic bakes him a blue cake!



:O
He’s so different-looking! I love it!
Odin rolls the Joke Star aspiration, fun!
He gains the Gregarious trait and the Geek trait to go with his Music Lover trait. I really like his face, is that weird?

I’m gonna go ahead and end the chapter here. I’ve definitely beat my usual amount of pictures per chapter. I figured I’d play longer since I had no fails last time but we’re looking at no fails again. The only points I got was from Edith getting an A as a child and Odin getting an A as a child.

Thanks so much for reading, guys! I’ll see you next time ❤

The Goodman ISBI Patriarchy – Chapter 4 [Progress?!]

Welcome back to the Goodman ISBI Patriarchy!

Last time, I had a lot(AND I MEAN A LOT) of fails while Dom and Izumi finally had a baby boy. Little Odin ended the baby-making for this generation.

Before we get started, I want to take the time to say a sincere and huge thank you to everyone over on the Boolprop discord. I joined it the other day and everyone is just so nice and welcoming. I highly recommend hopping in there and saying hello.

I want to also give a big shout-out and a thank you to the Master Controller Command Center (Deaderpool) discord. I was having some technical difficulties with my MCCC and they stuck with me and helped me till the problem was solved. They are incredibly friendly and helpful and you don’t see that a lot online these days. Keep it up, guys <3.

Let’s start off with a Sim Check!

Dom is tired after his birthday/makeover.

Izumi is looking pretty pleased with herself. Really don’t know why.

Lillian is sleeping.

Edith is hanging out on the couch.

Poor Odin is still passed out on the floor from last time. Bless his heart 😦


I send a exhausted Dominic to put Odin to bed and the kid woke up and ran out the front door. BOI, come back!


He gets all the way to the side of the house and just giggles to himself.


Dom, who had given up and went to bed, gets poked into going out there to get Odin(by me, of course) and Izumi beats him there, blocking Dom’s actions to Odin.


Yes, pour the paint on her shoes.


Izumi ended up making herself useful and putting Odin to bed after her wedge sandals filled with paint.


I finally get a shot at Edith’s normal clothes. I think she’s cute.



The girls are really cute together. They hang out and go play in the rain. Don’t catch a cold, ladies!


:l Edith… You were the good kid…


Scold her, Dom!


Lillian brings home a project from school. I remove it from her inventory with the hope that she’ll work on it.


It was at this point I realized I could influence the kids to do stuff. Dom promptly suggests that Lillian should take a bath, as she’s proper stinky at this point.


Dom heads off to have a nap and Odin, who’s fun bar is in the red, runs out to the ball pit to play.


Here’s some autonomous cuteness.


Dom potty trains Odin, getting him to level 2.


He then gets him to bed.


Afterward, he has some food with Edith. Dunno why she’s frowning, probably tired.


I was loving how much Dom loves his kids but then he tried to get Lillian to go to bed and she went to his room. Great :l


So Dom goes to sleep on the couch and gives me another shot of everyone sleeping.


The next day, Dom cooks some breakfast and Edith washes a dish.


Winterfest is coming up so we work on decorations!


Tree time!


Can you tell Dom’s favorite color is blue? I thought it fit with the Patriarchy theme.


The girls get home from school in their chilly day clothes.




Dom influences them both to get their homework done. They mind their father well.


This picture captures Odin maxing his movement skill, getting me points!
+5


Afterward, Dom reads him a book, which completes his Aspiration milestone, getting me more points!
+5

This next one, Trusted Mentor, will be a bit tougher, as I need at least one of the kids to get an A in high school and I need at least one kid to max one skill. We have plenty of time for them to get it done so I have high hopes.



Lillian, feeling restless, keeps herself busy while everyone else sleeps.



Winterfest time! Everyone hangs out while Odin sleeps and Lillian autonomously works on her project!

I don’t get many pictures, creepy Father Winter was here though!
(I bought a faux fireplace lol)


No one seems super enthused.


Dominic and Izumi go to bed and Father Christmas acts hella creepy around the kids, just watching them socialize.


Then he wants to chat with Dom in the kids room, while sitting on Odin’s bed. Stop D:


Izumi wakes up and randomly wants to swing. I bought that for the girls and they haven’t even touched it yet -_-

I should note that Dom had a fantastic Winterfest, I was able to complete all the holiday goals for him, and everyone else had a pretty good Winterfest! I thought that was pretty good for an ISBI.


Stinky, little Odin has one more day till his birthday. Dom patiently waits as he finishes his faux BLT sandwich to give him a bubble bath.


Edith comes home and does her homework all on her own. Color me, surprised.


Suddenly, it’s the next day.




There we go, our heir!
Odin rolls Artistic Prodigy as his aspiration and Music Lover as his trait. Pretty cool!


Here he is in his new pajamas!
I noticed in CAS that he had red eyes, the downside of custom eye content. I changed them to Dominic’s eye color, a grayish-blue, since he gained Izumi’s hair and a little mix of their skin-tone. I really need to get some more skin overlays for children as the only one I have has three tones and they’re all too light.


Here’s his everyday outfit as he does his homework at his father’s request.


The girls get home and Edith ends the week with a B!
Lillian is still at a C, but she doesn’t seem bothered.


Lillian decides to do her homework while she chats with her younger brother and a neighbor kid. I didn’t even get his name lmao.


My little Whiz Kid, Edith, works inside.


The chapter has gone on a little while,
I’ve been sticking to the trend of 50 to 55 screenshots per chapter to keep myself from being overwhelmed lol.
Let’s leave Dom to rest and call it a day!

Next time, more birthday and we hopefully get one of the kids up to an A average to make Dom proud. Thanks for reading guys! See you soon ❤

The Goodman ISBI Patriarchy – Chapter 3 [So many fails!]

Hello hello! Welcome back to the Goodman ISBI Patriarchy! Last time, our first two babies were born, both girls so not a very productive start for a PATRIARCHY. Let’s see how this chapter goes.
(If the title doesn’t spoil things, I can spell it out. Things don’t go well.)


We start the chapter out with Izumi’s impeccable parenting. She’s hugging little Lillian while Edith screams in the background. -__-


Of course, Dominic can’t help because he’s knocked out in bed. Poor guy is in a constant state of exhaustion.


Look at him, bless.


No rest for the wicked though, Izumi is pregnant again with baby number three and I will call this legacy a bust and move on if it’s another girl. DON’T TEST ME, WOMAN! MAKE THAT UTERUS WORK RIGHT!


Dom: Woman, I can barely stand with two kids and now we’re having a third??

o_o Look at the venom in that stare!


Look at that :O
Izumi fed Lillian all on her own!


I get my first true need fail with my TH of all people. He literally had to lock Izumi out of the baby’s room just so Lillian could eat without being picked up and put down over and over again and he ended up passing out right before he could potty train her.
-5


I let Dom sleep and pray that this dummy can keep the kids alive for a few hours.


A quick little fast forward later and Edith grows up!
She rolls the Clingy trait because the game and the trait randomizer hate me.


Here’s Edith post-makeover. She’s a cutie but ultimately useless lol.


Here’s Dom’s attempt at painting as a career. It’s going well.


Lillian has 2 more sim-days before her child birthday and I’m so strung out on toddlers. I get even more stressed when I remember there’s another on the way at this point.


Speaking of baby number 3, Izumi goes into labor a day before Lillian’s birthday.


At least the kids are chill.


Why don’t you go chill out while labor progresses, Izumi?


THAT’S NOT WHAT I MEANT!
-5


Here we go!


:O Is that?!


We interupt this baby reveal to give you another fail…
-5


Okay, what we’ve been waiting for!
We have ourselves a boy and one true heir!
Meet Odin Goodman!
+5


GO TF TO BED, WOMAN!
-5


Birthday time!



Here is little Lillian pre-makeover!
Lillian rolls Rambunctious Scamp as her aspiration and Outgoing as her trait!


Post-makeover! Looking a bit down, but still cute!


The next day is Harvestfest and I got overrun with these little bastards. I was trying to appease them, and it was working, but I ended up getting six of them surrounding the fridge. So I sold them :l


Lillian is a sweet girl, she likes to tidy up.


Dominic’s hunger, hygiene and energy are all in the red at this point. Poor guy can’t catch a break.


Izumi ignores the empty double bed and goes for Lillian’s bed instead. Whatever, at least it’s not a fail.


Edith is a mess, starving and filthy. Toddlers are so hard in an ISBI when one parent is an absolute potato.


Our heir, Odin, has a birthday!


Dom is so proud.


Look at this cutie pre-makeover!
He gains the Silly trait through the dice rolls!


Look at him!!!



I know I have been completely over toddlers, but that little face makes it worth it.


Lillian comes home from school after having to retake a test. She has permanent stank face on right now.


Even with a fenced in backyard, Edith sneaks out the front door to throw paint in the yard behind the fence. Girl.


Gotta constantly work to keep this mans needs up. Forever tired.


Here’s a tiny accomplishment, everyone’s sleeping!!
Look at Dom’s bright-red plumbob, poor guy.



The kids are still cute


Dom’s painting is still pretty okay.


We’ve got our Founder and “Spouse” immortalized through pictures. I only really need Dom’s picture, but I figured it would be good to have photos for the future legacy mausoleum.
+5

We’ve got two birthdays today, Dominic’s adult birthday and Edith’s child birthday.

Edith is first!


Edith comes out adorable, of course.
She gains the Whiz Kid aspiration and the Goofball trait with the dice.
This is pre-makeover, let’s age up our TH first.



Here we go!


Still handsome, of course!

Makeover time!


There we go!


We just had to end our chapter with a heartbreaking fail. Poor Odin got out of bed just to pass out. Poor thing.
-5

Let’s cut before anything else goes wrong lol. Next time, more birthday and hopefully less fails. Thanks guys! ❤
