Round 1: Cordial (Season 1: Fall)

Cordial Household:

Kimberly Cordial: Knowledge/Grilled Cheese  |  LTW: Become Mayor  |  First Wishes: Influence Someone to Make Grilled Cheese, Serve Grilled Cheese, Talk to Sim About Grilled Cheese, Make Grilled Cheese for Sim  |  Fulfilled First: Serve Grilled Cheese


Kimberly used to have her sister living with her, but she moved out and got married to Conner Weir.  This house is pretty nice sized for two people, so we'll see if Kimberly wants anyone to move in.

 As soon as the welcome party comes by Kimberly is able to serve them some grilled cheese.  She spends her first day fulfilling Grilled Cheese wishes, one after another.

Latter in the night that first day Armand DeBateau called and invited her for an outing.  Since we do our best to accept these invitations in Megalahood she says ok.  When they arrive we find that Kimberly is actually highly attracted to Armand.  Too bad he never showed wishes for her.  Samantha, her sister, is also along.

Kimberly is still thinking about Armand, who brought his daughter and new wife with him on the outing. The older guy in the middle back there is actually Consort Capp I believe.

Wanting to be Mayor, Kimberly understands the influence someone like a Capp can have, so she starts to get to know Consort.  Armand and his very pregnant wife are very in love.

Kimberly is having a heck of a time finding a job in Politics, so she stays with her Military career for now.  Unfortunately, that means she is usually very tired when she gets home.  Either that, or her guest is VERY boring.

Kimberly needed a skill for her job, and since she was reaching her 5 wishes easily each day in GC, I decided to have her study for the skill she needed.  It proved to be just the thing to get those knowledge wishes started.

She is a very social person and brings guests home with her almost every night.  They are not always polite.  This guy walks in on her going to the bathroom and just stands there and stares at her.  Kimberly does her best to ignore him.

Kimberly is now taking advantage of everything fall has to offer a knowledge sim.  She comes home every day and starts to skill.  Most days getting 5 wishes is easy.  Once in awhile we hit 3 due to the wishes such as, see a ghost, or reach level 9...which takes awhile.  Due to the exhausting nature of her job, somedays she just can't stay up for 5 wishes.

It does not stop her from trying each day, however and the chess set is installed to start reaching the logic skill wishes that she has begun to roll up.

Cooking is also a popular skill for Kimberly to wish about, and it gets her away from the books.  The cooking channel gives her quite a bit of fun as well.

Kimberly is still checking for that Political job she desires, and continues to be disappointed.  I feel kind of bad for Kimberly, but skilling the way she is should make it a piece of cake when she finally lands that dream job.

So with that hope in mind she goes back to skilling.  Thus ending a very pleasant fall, and a mostly successful one for Kimberly.  No one special has popped up to make her want a beau so far.  Time will tell if that changes for our hopefully soon to be mayor.


Kimberly Cordial: Started off with really easy days.  All her wishes revolved around grilled cheese.  Then, once she got that first skill point, everything revolved around skill points.  It became like an obsession to her. She never wished to change careers, but since her LTW is to become Mayor, she checked every day.  Politics must be competitive right now, since it never showed up. The Military career did prove to be difficult on her, almost every day coming home very low on energy while also hungry.
Ending Wishes: See a Ghost, Be Saved from Death, Gain a Cleaning Skill, Reach Charisma Level 6


  1. So interesting for me to see what Kimberly is doing in your game! In mine, she has reached Elderhood some time ago, and her sister Samantha still shares the house with her. Sam is married to Gabriel Green in my game.
    Does Kim need to work while she is waiting for her opportunity to enter politics? If I remember correctly, the household is not doing bad financially at the start of the game.

    1. It's not doing poorly money wise, no, she technically she doesn't NEED to work. I've been keeping her at her job for now though just for fun, and a bit of a challenge. Although 5 wishes a day is probably challenging enough.

  2. I have only played this hood once. Even for a GCS, it is possible to get the skilling wishes started...

    1. Yeah, she was a really easy sim to keep happy for quite a while. The get level 8 or 9 started to get a bit harder just because it took so long. Thanks for reading.

  3. Great round in the end, skilling certain is useful in the Autumn! It's so annoying when a job won't appear- it's taken some of my sims nearly 2 weeks of looking sometimes. (Sorry!). ;D
    I once turned both sisters into witches (good and bad) but that's about it so I'm looking foward to following their lives with you.

    1. So far Kimberly hasn't had any interest in her witch friend, or becoming one. That might change in the future, but I'm interested in seeing where wishes take her. Thanks for reading. :)
