Chapter 43: The Gnomes are Worried

After Meghan's death, no one has been tending the garden. The gnomes gather around the weedy, dessicated plants, but are unable to do anything about it.

Rhys becomes a child, and takes over the bedroom recently occupied by his grandparents. His favorite color is the same as Archer's, so no changes in decor are needed.

Jessica discovers a new hobby.

Mining has produced a large glowing hole in the yard, so Jessica inspects it, and falls in. On her underground adventure, she meets a Grey Warden who warns her away from a darkspawn infested cave.

Alis becomes a child.

Challenge Notes:
Talfryn and Jessica have both achieved their LTWs and have thus officially completed all their goals for their generation.
The legacy is supposed to continue until the gen 11 dies, but my plan was just to go until the gen 11 heir (Rhys) becomes YA. However, now that Gen 10 has met its goals, I'm finding the actual playing of the legacy to be kind of tedious. I can't get too interested in or attached to the kids because I know I won't be playing them as adults.
I did intend to carry on with this legacy and give it a proper wrap up, but as I've moved on to my next legacy, the longer I go without playing this one, the less I feel like loading it. So I can't say for sure when or if this legacy will be updated  again.
Here is a link to my new legacy:

Chapter 42: Leftover Party Drinks

Guests begin arriving for Talfryn and Jessica's wedding.

As soon as everyone arrives, and before they all start wandering around the house, the couple take their vows.

Now Jessica is officially a Carlton.

The three Carlton brothers enjoy the angel cake, baked generations ago by Violet Carlton, but still flaming.

Dylan does his Yeti hand puppets for Carys, who is expecting her first child.

The bridal couple dance.

"Do we really have to stay down here? I'd like to go upstairs and be alone," Jessica suggests.

"These parties are more about my Dad than anyone else," Talfryn answers, "We don't have to stay."

Caitlin picks a fight with Carys.

Alvin and Kristian go out to the yard to get away from their in-laws.

And the happy couple sneak up to their bedroom.

Archer starts off Sunday morning with leftover wedding party drinks.

Not long after their wedding, Talfryn and Jessica are expecting.

Dylan gets a cake for his birthday, but no party. The only person he wanted invite, his girlfriend Candace, couldn't make it because of her working hours in the music career.

Dylan becomes a man. Following in Shadow McDermott's footsteps, he gets a job as a ghost hunter. Then he moves in with Candace. The couple marry shortly afterwards.

Talfryn and Jessica have a son, Rhys.

And quickly follow up with a second pregnancy.

"You can't take me now, I've got another grandchild on the way!"
Archer's pleas do not move the Reaper.

Talfryn shares his grief with Jessica.

Rhys becomes a toddler.

And he gets a little sister, Alis, to share his nursery.

Ghosts: more afraid of you than you are of them.

Alis becomes a toddler. Meghan spends a lot of time in the nursery, helping to raise her grandchildren.

So it's no surprise that Grim comes for her while she's teaching little Alis to walk.

Archer and Meghan are buried together with the rest of the family. 

Challenge Notes:
Generation 11 is born. I didn't roll any rules for Rhys and Alis, since this legacy will be ending when Rhys becomes a YA. As long as I can fulfill Talfryn and Jessica's goal of Fulfilled, to achieve their LTWs before then.
They are both looking good to achieve this before Rhys a YA. Jessica is level 9 Handiness and level 8 Logic (she must max both). Talfryn is level 9 painting, level 7 Logic and level 8 Charisma (must max all 3).

I'm really bummed out I don't have a picture of Jessica's Gnome of Invention. I was sure I shot one right after she made it, but there is no picture of it. Lyle never made one of those, so I was excited for Jessica that she did. Oh, well, lol.
