ImaginingMystic's Legacy Story - Introduction

Well, it's been a few years (several, in fact) since I've attempted to write a story for a Sims 2 Legacy Family.  In spite of being married to the challenge's creator I've never actually successfully completed a Legacy Challenge.  I intend to finally remedy that.

I decided to follow the Sims 2 Legacy Challenge Advanced Rules as I think that adding more challenges to my Legacy family will help keep me interested longer than the 3 Generations I usually make it until I get bored and the family is swimming in Simoleons.  I will also be using Handicaps.

Rather than dive head first into Chapter 1, I decided to give a brief introduction to my founder.  I am still working on writing Chapter 1 and hope to have it up within the next week or so.

This is Geneva Legacy (I plan on following a European city naming theme).  She is an outgoing Leo that enjoys meeting new people and making friends.  I decided to make my founder a Popularity Sim as it's one of my least favorite Aspirations (next to Pleasure Sims), so I figured if I started off with an aspiration I don't like, it will help me to get it out of the way so that I -hopefully- don' have to deal with too many more of them.

Welcome to the Official Legacy Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the new Official Legacy Challenge Blog!  My name is Christina, but some of you will probably know me as ImaginingMystic.  If you don't know who I am, I am Pinstar's wife. We met through the Sims 2 back in 2006.  We have both been pretty silent in the Sims world over the last several years as we have been busy starting a real life Legacy of our own.  Pinstar and I have two little boys, Alex is 3 and Cooper is 1 1/2.  As you can imagine we have our hands full.  That being said, I didn't want to keep neglecting the gaming community that brought the two of us together in the first place so I decided to start up a blog where I could have all of the Legacy Challenge rules organized in one central location (as well as the rules for the Apocalypse Challenge and the Sim of the Month Challenge).  I also plan on posting the story for my current Sims 2 Legacy Family as I play it (though I don't anticipate these updates being all that frequent as I am busy with our real family) as well as guest posts from other Legacy Challenge fans.

As many of you know, Pinstar has not been available to answer Legacy Challenge questions on the Sims 3 site for quite some time now.  So if you have questions, you may ask them here in the comments, or email them to me at and I will ask him and get back to you.

Finally, as news of the Sims 4 starts being released, Pinstar plans on posting his plans for the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge here as well.

If there is anything else that you would like to see here, please let me know!

Happy simming!
