Author’s Notes: This is part 3 of 3 based on a three month challenge collaborating by using the Sims created by others in the SimLit Monthly Challenge group. 

Step 1 – READ HERE– create a new character and upload it to the gallery. Create the backstory for this character. FIND TODD HERE in the gallery as Castaway Todd

Step 2 – READ HERE – I selected Veronica Grey, one of the characters from another writer’s character introduction to incorporate as an antagonist (creating tension or conflict for Todd) (as per the rules – 673 words, 10 images)

Step 3 – I added Naia, Siren of Vengeance created by DarkChadmeister as a protagonist (a supporting character that may help to resolve or smooth over the tension or conflict and as per the rules 1200 words or less, max 12 images)


Then.. several years in the future…




Widow Creek

Crayg and IshekeCrayg and Isheke are the creations of ElderJymm – find them in the gallery.
Savea SistersI don’t know where these sisters came from. Are they game townies? Ooops I forget.

Other things to explore later:

  • there is a strange mystical tree which is rumored to be the source of several orphaned children

A Very Vardo Adventure – part 4

Mount and Snow continues his adventure in some very scary territory – Death Mask Valley as it is now called, has been plagued by a virus of some sort, though his only purpose is to save any children that need saving.

If you are not caught up then start with part one of this side track storyline. HERE
