Clematis finished building the rocket! 😀
It’s a risk, sending the embodiment of all your hopes and dreams for the future into space in a rocket he built himself in his own back yard, but I was way too curious to resist. I had to try it out right now!
On our space mission there were asteroids and we had the option of turning back but we managed to avoid collision. And then he found an alien. We had the option to either kill it or attempt to capture it; we chose the latter and Clem was bitten! D: Did I just blow it? Was he gonna die? What would it mean??
He made it back! Woo!! And he seems okay. Thank freaking gawd.
The little “alien” he rescued gets to live with us while we work on our collections. He’s kind of cute, I guess? ;D
Anyway, that was a little too nerve-wracking given the current state of affairs, so for now we’ll stick to skilling up our Rocket Science by building ship upgrades while we attempt to get a family underway. Once we get a bun cookin’ I’ll send him back up there.
You know what that means.. More trips to the park! *cheers weakly*
I’m half-expecting Estrella to be an elder every time we encounter her, since she had some adult overlap with the late Buttercup. But the two get along and she’s very nice to Clem, so we’ll at least build a friendship. We learned from Burdock’s Astronaut career that there will come a promotion stage that Clem will need 7 friends for, and there definitely won’t be a house full of babies to chum it up with this time.
As seems to be the norm, the game is making some unappealing townies for me. 3/4 of them seem to be chubby male elders, and many of the others have serious character flaws. Like this beauty:
Love the hair and eyes! But, insane and mean? No thank you! D:
We ran across our brother Cal, who seems to have become even more of a cheeseball since he moved out. Wearing a tux to the park to meet girls? Pfft. We know you practically live in a baseball cap, bro!
Well, no winners yet but at least we’ve met a few people. It’s a start.
