The Challenge

This is a legacy using TheUsernameFound’s Differences in the Family Tree Challenge. I found it a lot more inspiring for storytelling than the usual legacy. This one uses almost all of the aspects found in the game itself. The rules can be found at her blog here.

Generation One
“I always wanted to be a farmer. There is a tradition of that in my family. ”

Your family was always into the farming deal. They spent their days working hard and asked for their children to do the same. So when you turned 18, your parents surprised you with your own plot of land to continue on tradition. And having always been one to want to impress the folks. You begin creating your own small garden, dedicating your time to that rather then dealing with a dreadful 9-to-5 suit and tie job.

Objectives of generation one:
-grow a garden with every type of plant from store! (excludes egg and steak and omni)
-get married, but no woohoo before married (your mama taught you better then that)
-have a boy and a girl. Keep trying til you do! (try no watermelons or apples)  -ADDED: If unable, you can always adopt the one you are missing
-Master Gardner skill.

Optional objectives:
-Obtain and plant every type of plant
-catch every type of fish
-Marry a gal/guy with “Loves Outdoors” and/or “green thumb”
Master Fisherman Skill (Moved from objective)


Generation Two
“I was expected to be a farmer like my father and siblings. I broke tradition. It was great.”

Life with your hands in the dirt wasn’t the life for you. You always craved to spend your time in the city and always loved when in the inner-city limits. You crave for more important things then seeing seeds sprout into plants or the days your father spent fishing, as they didn’t interest you as much as your siblings. You decide not to follow the road of a farmer, but turn to business instead.
