NOTE: Credits are at the rear end of this FAQ
NOTE: This FAQ is only to be seen at Gamesfaq and Neoseeker unless you receive
      PERMISSION FROM ME SO EMAIL ME TO DO SO.
NOTE: If you don't have the expansion packs, when you decide to email me, you
      should have "The Sims 2 - Base Game" as topic so I know what it is 
      about.
NOTE: If you see glitches in your game, go to www.thesims2.ea.com and download
      the latest patch for your game. This fixes up A LOT, if not ALL the bugs
      in the base game and the glitches found in the expansion packs.

[1] Introduction

This is just the start of the game. This chapter will describe the nature of
the game and the difference between the old Sims 1 and the new Sims 2. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[1.01] Introduction to the Game

The Sims 2 is a squeal to one of the most popular games out, The Sims. This 
game is produced by Maxis and is distributed by Electronics Art (I Think). The
Sims 2 is basically a virtual (not as realistic) simulation of life, where you
play god over your "Sims". You buy them items such as furniture and plants,
buy new clothing, build house and such, and so forth. Its great fun, but it is
rated M15+ in the shops (In Australia, it is anyway). It is targeted to 
everyone who can purchase this game, and that means everyone. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[1.02] Difference between The Sims 1 and The Sims 2

Players of The Sims 1 should see that I'm talking from the original version
of The Sims 1 and that I'm talking about the one released, not the one with
any or all the expansion packs. This is a large range and includes:
                   _
* Livin Large       |
* House Party       |
* Hot Date          |
* Vacation          | Great Stuff
* Unleashed         | 
* Makin Magic       |
* Superstar        _|

* Online

I'm doing this so that people who get to play The Sims 1 without any of 
the expansion packs will understand my mumbo jumbo.

Differences include:

* The telephone does not give out money randomly and you don't get weird calls
* You can talk to computer played players (NPC's) like the postie
* More items (well, duh!)
* Cleaning skill
* Age groups
* Kicked out some old jobs (entertainment)
* Added of new jobs (slacker, cooking)
* Many more social interactions
* Community lots
* Neighbourhoods
* Aspirations and Aspiration Points
* Rewards
* Chance Cards
* Meditate and Yoga
* New Foods
* Grim Reaper
* Interests
* Environment Bar
* Call Work and call a SICKIE

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh man, its so hot, I can't work. Being stuck in the southern end of the world

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2] Getting Started

This is the basic chapter of the FAQ. It explains how to start a family and 
where you choose to live and work, and in the end, DIE!!!!! It is here that
you learn the basics of the game and how to start it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.01] Neighbourhood

The Sims 2 start you off with 3 pre-made neighbourhoods and the option to 
create you own neighbourhoods. The 3 pre-made neighbourhoods have their own
story and I'll start with them. 

Note that the story is directly from the game and is not edited in any way.

***************
*Pleasantview*
***************

"A lot has happened in 25 years! Mortimer Goth made his fortune, the Pleasants
put down roots, and a new generation of Sims was born. But the peaceful, happy
existence is in jeopardy when some new arrivals to Pleasantview start stirring
up trouble, creating rivalries and tensions for all the families in the 
neighborhood. Can anything be done to restore the peace to sleepy, idyllic
Pleasantview?

Cassandra is ready to start a family of her own, but can she tame the town
Casssanova? And can Mortimer bounce back after the disappearance of his wife
Bella?

Was it just coincidence that the Caliente sisters arrived on the evening of 
Bella's disappearance? And is there interest in Mortimer physical ... or
fiscal?

Who is Don Lothario? Is his engagement to Cassandra Goth genuine? And what
about the rumor that her mother, Bella, was last seen scaling the deck of his
condo?

Brandi was left to raise two boys alone following her husband's suspicious
pool ladder accident. With Dustin acting out, can Brandi teach young Beau to
make the right choices in life?

On the surface, Daniel and Mary-Sue Pleasant seem to have the perfect life, 
but is their love a flimsy facade? And can Angela and Lilith make the right
choices when it comes to love?

Darren is pursuing his dream of being an artist, while his son Dirk hits the
books. And Darren may have found his muse, but will his creativity be enough
to win Cassandra's affection?"

There are 6 living families in Pleasantview. They are:

Pleasant
Goth 
Dreamer
Caliente
Lothario 
Broke

There are 2 that are waiting to be moved in. They are:

Burb
Oldie

*************
*Strangetown*
*************

"An aspiration for knowledge has attracted a diversity of truth-seeker to this
small community along the Road to Nowhere. Can they learn to accept their
neighbors, or will their differences clash and spell ruin for their town? And
are the report of a Bella Goth sighting fact for fiction? In Strangetown, 
nothing is what it seems.

In search of truth and mystery, the three Curious brothers, Pascal, Vidcund 
and Lazio, got more than they were "expecting." Can they cope with their new 
roles as cosmic parents?

After a fruitful career, Pollination Technician 9 has retired to his favorite
planet. But can his son Johnny make friends and fit in, or is this family just
to strange for Strangetown.

What experiments are the highly secretive and less than neighborly Loki and 
Circe Beaker performing on poor Nervous Subject? Will this secrecy affect
Circe's career ambitions?

Tank has always lived under the hard thumb of his father, General Buzz Grunt.
In this domesticated boot camp, can Tank prove his worth to this demanding 
Dad?

Who is buried in Olive Specter's garden? Will then mysterious, aging outcast
leave her fortune to her niece Ophelia, or, as rumored, to an unnamed heir?"

There are five families currently living in Strangetown. They are:

Specter
Curious
Smith
Grunt
Beaker

There are two families waiting to be moved in. They are:

Loner
Singles

Massive Spoiler - DON'T READ UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHERE BELLA GOTH
IS.

Bella Goth is hiding in the hot air balloon

End of Spoiler

*************
*Veronaville*
*************

"Two houses, alike in dignity ... The Capps and Montys have been feuding for
years, but that hasn't stopped the younger generation from crossing boundaries
and falling in love. Will their actions lead to ruin, or bring the two 
families together?

Patrizio Monty never forgot Consort Capp's broken promise. But now his
grandson Romeo fas fallen for the Capp heiress. Will the Elders live to see 
the two families united?

Juliette Capp has fallen for Romeo, golden child of the rival Monty clan. Can
the Capps set aside their grudge and put Juliette's happiness first?

The Summerdreams' kindly nature and zest for life have cast a romantic spell
over Veronaville's youth. But will there be any magic left for Puck?

There are three families currently living in Veronaville. They are:

Monty
Capp
Summerdream

There are four families waiting to be moved in. They are:

Monty
Monty
Capp
Capp

That is the end of the 3 pre-made stories. You can create your own 
neighbourhood. All you have to do is to select Create Your Own Neighbourhood
option and choose an area. Then you can choose a setting, lush (green) or 
desert setting. If you are not happy with your selection, you can make your 
own neighbourhood. You need SimCity 4 (Not sure if you need Rush Hour or Not)
and got to a region. Enter one and make a basic outline of one. Then you 
import the sc4 file from you games folder into the Neighbourhood folder under 
My Documents. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.02] Create Your Own Sim

Lets start with the basics. Click on Create a Family (a family with a plus
sign on it) on the neighbourhood screen. Here are the basic options

Name
Here is where name your Sim (duh). You can call him/her anything you like. For
example, you can call him Bob, Jack, Moo, Poo, Stupid, Ugly, Hobo, anything 
you like. Don't forget the surname box at the bottom to finish the name.

Gender
Here is where you decide if the Sim is a male or a female (well, duh) 

Age
You can choose where your Sims can start off with age. They can be a toddler,
child, teenager, adult or ELDER!!!

Colour
Choose the skin colour here. You can choose either light, tan, brown or dark.
If you have downloaded any skins off the net, they will appear next to dark.

Weight
Choose if you want a fatty boom boom Sim for a frail skinny Sim. This will
change throughout the game.

Biography
Here you write about you Sim.

If you are so damn lazy that you cannot do any of the above, click the die 
button to randomize your Sim you lazy bum.

                                     ***
Once the basics have been set up, you can move onto the Body! Yay! Body 
options allow to configure what your Sims will look like in the end. Its a 
long list, so lets start
                                     ***

Head
You can change the shape of your Sim's Head. Theses heads will depend on your
chosen skin colour, age and gender

Hair Style and Colour
This options change the hair style and hair colour of your Sim. There are 
several styles to choose from, including hats like a VIKING HORN HAT. HAHAHA,
dress your Sim like a Viking! HAHAHAHAHA. Where was I? Oh yes, the hair. You
can change the hair colour to red, black, etc. Next to the red option, there 
will be an icon which lets you use hair styles downloaded of the internet. Or
made using the Sims Body Shop (separate program installed when you install 
the Sims 2)

Face
You can change the face to your liking. You can make the Sims look like a 
normal person, ET like, deformed like a monkey (no offence to be taken here)
or so ugly so that mirrors will break when they see him, scare the living
daylights out of people so see him or like the Grim Reaper. With the slider,
you can change the facial height of your Sim.

Brow
You change the eyebrow of your Sim. Choose the base option and change 
according to your taste. You can change the thickness of the brows till you
are happy.

Eyes
Like above, you choose a base and customise accordingly. You can change the 
eye colour to your own taste.

Mouth
You can get a big mouth, small mouth or your average size mouth. The sliders 
here control width, size and shape. (Wanna making that long mouth painting 
you've been seeing so often?)

Chin
Like your weird mouth, you can change the chin. Choose a base like normal,
then fiddle around till you are happy

                                     ***
When you are done with the facial expression, you can place makeup!!!
                                     ***

Blush
Give it a brush with some blush. Choose from the several colours available. 
Both males and females can use this.

Eyeliner
Is your Sim a Goth? Give it the black treatment. Both males and females can
use this.

Eye Shadow
How deep will the colour array have for your Sim? You want a male who wants to
be a female? Give him the shadow! Wanna a dirty slut for a wife? Place the 
eye shadow till its just like TV! Males and females can both use this.

Lipstick
Want red lips? Want black lips? Now you can with the lipstick!?! OMG !?! Both 
males (snigger) and females can use this.

                                     ***
After the makeup, you can choose some accessories to go along with your Sim
                                     ***

Costume Makeup
This allows you to add some face painting to your Sim. There are several 
schemes for you to choose from. My favourite (being Warfreak) is the military
one. Both males and females can use this.

Glasses
Want a nerdy figure in your family? Bored and want to make someone in your 
family a pointdexter? Then give them glasses. The Sims 2 glasses range from 
you typical sunnies to the old, boring, dull, traditional reading glasses.
Both males and females can wear these fab products.

Beard or Moustache
Give your Sim that unique look. Give him a moustache to look like Saddam 
Hussein (infidel!) or Mario (the plumber) or a beard to be like a biker 
(rebel!) or good old Santa! Hey, males only!

Stubble
Used in conjunction with the beard/moustache, your Sim can have a stubble.
Not a moustache, not a beard, just enough to show it out. This is a males
only option.

                                     ***
After the face, you can choose your Sim's clothing
                                     ***

Everyday Outfit
You can mix and match your everyday outfit from the large range of tops and
pants here or select a pre-made suit.

Formal Outfit
Choose what formalwear your Sim will have. You will wear it to the Wedding 
Party if you make one.

Undies
Choose what lingerie your Sim will wear to bed

PJ's
This is what your Sim will wear instead of undies to bed

Swimwear
Your Sim will swim in this outfit. If this go into a hot tub, they will also
wear this outfit as well

Athletic Outfit
This is what your Sim wear when on an exercise machine or meditating.

After this you will choose your Aspiration and Personality. This will be 
explained later in Chapter 3, Aspirations will be explained later on in this 
FAQ. Then you choose your family tree. You choose who your Sims have relations
with. If you have a male and a female adult in the family, you will be able to
have a baby. The baby will look like its parents. Click the pacifier icon till
you have the baby you want.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[3.02] Characteristics

When you design a character, you assign points to give them traits. The traits
are Neat, Outgoing, Nice, Playful and Active. If you choose a star sign from 
the selection, you get the assigned traits automatically. You can assign 
yourself if you want to.

Note that the description between the quotation marks are from the game.

*************
*Sloppy/Neat*
*************

Sloppy Sims are the ones that are dirty. They eat like pigs, refuse to flush
the toilet, won't clean up, etc. Neat sims are the ones that have no problem
with that kind of stuff.

Sloppy
"With their constant disregard of cleanliness and hygiene, sloppy Sims are
content to simply "be." They tend to enjoy just about anything that doesn't
require planning or cleaning up on their part."

Neat
"Tidy Sims typically enjoy cleaning up the house or grooming themselves in
front of the mirror. There's always something to be done around the house
and they'll more often than not be found doing it; great for a house, but it
can tire Sims out."

Notes about Neat Sims

* Cleaning Skill increases faster than normal Sloppy Sims
* Neat Sims gain fun when cleaning things (weird)
* Neat Sims will clean the high chair when the Sim has taken the baby away
* If Free Will is on, if there is a puddle, they will clean it up
* Will never automatically eat spoiled food
* Children will pack up toys after use

Notes about Sloppy Sims

* Hygiene decreases faster than neat Sims
* Sloppy Sims stuff food in their mouth, which might lower relationship points
  if anyone is near them (sitting at the same table)
* Sloppy Sims don't have fun when told to clean things
* May eat from trash, for food that have files around it if their hunger is 
  very low (Free Will must be turned on in order to do this)
* Leave toys around if they are finished with them, they don't put it back
* They will make cleanable items such as showers and toilets more dirty 
  quicker than neat Sims
* Automatically eats spoiled food more often
* Gives themselves a spongebath in the sink when there is no shower or bath to
  wash themselves
* Can lick plates clean by clicking on the other rim of the plate
* May pee in the shower

**************
*Shy/Outgoing*
**************

Shy Sims are ones that do not like big parties and stay away from group 
action. The outgoing sims are the ones that crave the social attention and
adore being around people. 

Shy
"Introspective and quiet, shy sims often think about the world around them and
write in their diaries rather than actually interact with anyone. It may be 
harder to break out of their shells, but if shy Sims take the time to get to
know others, they'll be delighted by the social world awaiting them."

Outgoing
"Outgoing Sims are likely to jump headfirst into any situation. Charm and 
confidence are their best traits and when they're in a friendly mood, they 
enjoy group activities most of all. Keep an eye on these characters, though;
outgoing Sims can be too brash, and others aren't always so impressed."

Notes about Shy Sims

* Social bar takes a long time to decrease
* If they are in the same room with a fight going on, the shy Sim will run
* Shy Sims will not jump off the diving board
* Solo dances are a bit more reserved
* Have several special animations for some racy interactions

Notes about Outgoing Sims

* Social bar decreases fast
* With 8 or more outgoing points, the Sim will enter hot tubs naked
* Outgoing Sims talk with garden objects (gnome) if Free Will is on.
* Males Sims with Outgoing of 9+ points will pee in the bushes if need be
* Children with high outgoing are more likely to bring a friend home
* Higher chance of party success if started with outgoing Sim
* Sometimes Naked Sims may forget to dress in special events such as fire
* Have more animated conservations
* Will visit Sims if they are spied upon

*************
*Lazy/Active*
*************

Lazy Sims spend more time in front of the television than anyone else. 
Entertainment that require less energy like playing games on the computer 
or watching TV. Active sims gain more fun by doing harder activities, like
swimming.

Lazy
"Lazy Sims have been known to veg out on the couch for hours on end, so 
naturally, they don't need much sleep to sustain their constant lazying. They
still enjoy socializing with other Sims and can be persuaded to get out of the
house once in a while."

Active
"Active Sims are almost always on the move but need a lot of food and sleep to
keep up with their hectic pace. They're apt to be the happiest while breaking
a sweat, an exhausting idea to most other Sims. An active Sim will usually get
more enjoyment from watching sports on TV than reading a book."

Notes on Lazy Sims
* Can't run all the time, only if it is far away
* Get a snack from the fridge, even if hunger is at max (Free Will is on)
* Refuse to put books away
* Energy and Hunger decrease slowly
* Get fat a lot faster
* Always turn on the TV / Computer when fun is low (Free Will enabled)
* Random chance on turning off the alarm clock and going back to sleep
* Requires more sleep to fill bar
* Requires less food to fill bar

Notes on Active Sims
* Runs to every place
* Energy and Hunger drains faster
* Will swim if fun is low (Free Will enabled)
* Easier to get fit
* Needs less sleep to fill bar

*****************
*Serious/Playful*
*****************
Serious Sims don't play to play much, (Social Interaction), they take jokes
seriously. Playful Sims is the reverse.

Serious
"Quiet, thoughtful Sims are more inclined to enjoy logic puzzles and good
conversations, but they don't respond too well to chaos or silly behaviour.
Repairing broken items or working on an important project can keep serious
Sims content."

Playful
"Playful Sims are more likely to find entertainment and fun in the world
around them; they tend to be more curious than any other Sim. They may have a
lighthearted nature, but they can wear themselves out with their antics, as 
well as get on their fellow Sim's nerves."

Notes about Serious Sims

* Read the newspaper (If Free Will is on)
* Fun decreases slowly
* Reading a book or doing a crossword gives them more fun
* Increase Logic Skill the fastest

Notes about Playful Sims
* Fun decreases quickly
* Playing games increase fun faster
* If the Sim has Playful Points of 6+, they will also be able to skip to where
  they are going (you have to choose that)
* Can play with garden gnomes
* Can play in the hot tub

**************
*Grouchy/Nice*
**************
Grouchy Sims have a bad time making friends and socially interacting with 
other Sims. Of course, nice Sims have no problem with this.

Grouchy
"Grouchy Sims, despite their sour mood, can still be social creatures. They'll
probably enjoy teasing a Sim as much as telling a joke. They don't seem to 
mind when other Sims overreact and they like playing a games as much as anyone
else, but be warned: they tend to be sore losers."

Nice
"Encouraging and generous, nice Sims tend to be easy to get along with and 
very positive. They'll listen to what other Sims have to say whether it's
interesting or not and clean up after dirty roommates. If they don't watch out
though, other Sims may take advantage of their good nature."

Notes about Grouchy Sims

* If the interaction "Argue" is used against another Sim, the grouchy Sim will
  most likely gain Social from it.
* If the Grouchy Sims 4 point or less in the nice trait, they might knock over
  your garbage bin in a bad mood or steal a garden gnome if they are in a foul
  mood (what stingy people). Very mean Sims will do this even when the owner 
  is nearby
* With Free Will on, the Grouchy Sim might start a fight (more likely) with a 
  Sim they hate
* Grouchy Sims with 4 points or less in the nice trait will tend to spy on 
  people with the telescope if Free Will is enabled.
* Grouchy Sims taunt Sims who are playing a game
* Can cheat in Chess or Darts by clicking on the board

Notes about Nice Sims

* Less likely to start a fight (If Free Will is enabled)
* Lose Social and relationship points if they use or be used in the social 
  interaction "Argue and Fight"
* Nice Sims cheer on other Sims playing a game

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4] Neighbourhood

The neighbourhood is where your Sims and other Sims live, work and shop. This
chapter will explain how to add objects and what residential and community
are.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.01] Adding Decorations

When you play your own neighbourhood, it looks kind of empty. You can add
decorations to your neighbourhood to brighten it up. This include vegetation
such as tree and shrubs. You can also add things like water towers, research
sites, etc. You can add effects such as boats on the water (if there is water)
balloons and lots of other objects.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.02] Residential Lots

As the name implies, residential lots are lots where your Sims live. You can
either choose a pre-made home or a block of empty land. If you choose the 
block of land, be sure to name it and click residential lot. All lots, 
pre-made and empty lots must be placed next to a road (so cars and buses can
pick your Sims up.) After that, move your Sims in!

If you have a block of bare land, you can use build mode to make a house. 
However, building a house is harder than it seems and can cost a lot of money.
Only use this option if you want you Sims to live on bare land (for some 
unknown reason) or you have a lot of Simoleons (Sim Money) around the quarter
of a million mark for a luxary home. However, you don't need that much if you
plan to live cheap, which is relatively cheap. You can have a nice 2X2 home,
with the bare basics, for under 20,000 Simoleons, depending on what you buy. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.03] Community Lots

Community Lots are lots that a community can meet up in, which is also implied
by the name. They lots are where your own Sims will interact with other Sims
you have created or just walker bys (Sims that are generated and played by 
your computer.) You can buy food, clothes, games and magazines for your Sims
along with other things like BBQ's. 

You can build your own community lot by getting a block of bare land and 
making it a community lot. You can build to whatever you want as there is no
money limit on this (Thank God, imagine that you have a limit!) Build it to
your imagination, I mean you can build it like your corner shop if you really
wanted to, your imagination is your limit.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[5] Walkthroughs

This chapter is to help you with various things. This helps to start off, earn
money, etc.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[5.01] Help to Start Off

Okay, you have your family and all your need is a lot. Get a house (from the
house and lots bin) and slap it down. Buy the house if it is about §10000.
Then move your Sims in.

When you move in, there will be some items for you already. Go to buy mode
and make sure that you have:

1 Fridge
X Beds where X is the number of Sims (except toddlers)
1 Microwave or Oven
1 TV
1 Table with X Chairs where X is the number of Sims (except toddlers)
1 Crib and Changing Table (Only if you have a toddler)
A telephone
1 Toilet
1 Shower
Some Paintings (For Environment if you really care)
Some Toys
Bookshelf

When you finish buying that, you will be low on money. Get your adult Sims to
look in the newspaper. Find the highest paying job (Military or Politics) and
get in there. If you have teenagers, make them have a job as well. This will
bring more § into the household. If you have §500+, that's good as there
is need for more §. When the money starts to roll in, buy more things like
computers, better beds, better kitchenware, etc. When you have no more space
in your house. Stop. 

When you have §20000+ in cash, refill your fridge (you should refill it
earlier, but hey). Either take a taxi to a community lots where you can buy
food or order over the telephone. Ordering over the telephone involves a §50
delivery fee. Quit your Sims jobs. All of them. Then try to find a job in the
Athletics Career. Get some friends and keep promoting them. When you have the
money, then you keep playing yourself, the Noob Walkthrough is over.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[5.02] Earning Money

There are many ways to earn the easy buck. If you happen to have an art easel
and a high creative Sim, start painting. It earns you money on a more you
paint the more you earn basis. I've heard about people earning §2000+ per
painting! And there is the Hydroponic Garden. As a reward, your Sims will
cultivate plants and sell it for money. Getting a lot of family friends and
a lot of skill points with the odd maxed out set will greatly speed up your
chances at getting a promotion at work. The only method however, of gaining
more than §2000+ per painting is that you keep at it, keep going and painting.
The University Art Career has no bearing on this trait and the more you paint,
the more each painting will net. 

And who could forget the good old money tree. At §40 a pop every eight hours,
you could be rich! Don't have too many excess, unwanted objects as your bills
get calculated from the amount of objects your have and their values. Don't 
make your Sim's eat without having a low hunger bar as food from the fridge 
comes from the groceries you have to order. Use this walkthrough only if you
are on the verge of bankruptcy in the Sims 2. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[5.03] Art Money Maker

This should belong in the art section but I really don't care. When you finish
your painting on the art easel, you don't have to sell it. Go to buy mode and
hang it somewhere. As the time goes on, you'll forget about the painting, no
seriously, you'll forget, just like me. Leave it there and the price of the
painting will slowly increase over time. I once had a crappy painting which
was worth about §56, and when I remembered about it, it was worth §500! Man
was that a great deal. The price of sale increased by over 450%. You can also
do this with the painting you can buy like the §5500 one but it will increase
slower, it increased only §78 in 3 days. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[5.04] Need Control

This section is the faster way to regain your needs if you live in a single
storey house or you are short on time. Of course, check your bars for the one
that is in the most red. If it is bladder, go to the toilet to avoid a nasty
accident. Hygiene is cleared by going to the shower. Fun is quickly cured by
watching television, it regains the fastest on a channel besides the Yummy 
Channel and is best on the wide screen plasma television. Hunger is the most
annoying one as it takes time to cool. Go for an instant meal is you are red
but if you have time to same yourself, you should aim for a meal like an 
omelette or something that your Sim will not have the chance to get away from
as when they are hungry, they tend to leave food in the oven and stuff their
face with food while their cooking project is in the oven, starting to set the
whole house on fire. Social is best regain if you send e-mails many times and
when you check your e-mail, you will get a massive boost to your bar as you
decided to spam many e-mails over the SimInternet. Energy and comfort is best
regained on the Most expensive double bed. Comfort will skyrocket and energy
will slowly but surely regain itself. Environment is regained if you find a 
better furnished and cleaner room then you are in now. If not, clean the damn
room up. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[5.05] Skill Builder

Under here is the fastest way for my Sims to build up those hard to earn skill
points. Use the exercise machines, they are the fastest ways to build up those
annoying body skill points. Cleaning is best gained from cleaning benches and
toilets and such. Although cleaning from the bookcase could be faster, you are
actually helping out around the house and save on those maid bills. Cooking 
skill points are best learnt from the television (the Yummy Channel) and 
cooking and serving food. This can help you because the Yummy Channel is a fun
activity for all Sims and the cooking and serving for everyone is helpful 
because it can relieve hunger for yourself and other Sims. Mechanical can be
learnt from the bookself but helping out and fixing the broken objects are 
also important but the danger of getting fried by some broken electrical 
product is quite high. Charisma is only learnt from the mirror as there is no
naturally occurring object that will raise it. Creativity is the most easy 
one to raise because of the sheer fact that your Sims will do it with free 
will. Paintings are the best in my opinion because they will provide some nice
needed money and boost your creativity which will boost future paintings.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6] Your Sims Needs

Sims, like humans in real life, have needs, the basic needs of life. Their 
needs include Hunger, Comfort, Bladder, Energy, Fun, Social, Hygiene and
Environment.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.01] Hunger

"A refridgerator is the first stop for any hungry Sim. Cooking Skill and 
appliances will affect the quality of the different meals Sims can prepare. If
they don't feel like cooking, then they can call for a pizza!"

Hunger is the only need on the list that can kill your Sim. This makes it the
most important need to fulfil and first thing to look at on your Sim's need
bar. The more expensive the appliances that are used, the better quality the
food would turn out to be. Hunger can be restored by ordering a pizza from the
phone, grilling it on a BBQ, cooking it on a microwave or oven, having a snack
and using the oven stove to cook.

When cooking your food for an important guest, like for instance the 
Headmaster, you have to cook from a expensive fridge. The enhance the quality,
you should have a blender / food processor on standby (expensive) to mulch 
the food, then cook it on an expensive BBQ or the most expensive oven. Make 
the food a higher cooking level type of food, like lobster or salmon.

Hunger has the biggest effect on a Sims mood so be sure to make their hunger
in full green all the time to get a high mood score. Don't eat 24/7 because if
you do, the game will make your excess food in blubber and you really don't
want that to happen to your Sim, do you?

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

When the hunger bar has hardly any green left in it, it would be full red. The
Sim will rush to your fridge and randomly grabbing stuff to stuff its face. 
If there is no fridge, say goodbye to your Sim. If there is no food (hence
no supplies in the fridge), also prepare to say goodbye to your Sim. 

Full to Empty
Hunger of Active: 50 Hours
Hunger of Lazy  : 54 Hours 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.02] Comfort

"Sims of all ages love to be comfortable. This need will get pretty low if
there isn't a nice cozy couch or chair to sit down. Taking a warm bath or
soaking in the hot tub is another great way for Sims to relax."

Comfort isn't important to your Sims like Hunger is. It will only increase 
your mood, that's about it. Sit down on chairs, sofas, recliners to increase
comfort. Sleeping and having a bath will increase comfort. When you sit down
to eat your meal (Sim) you will increase comfort. All I can say is that you
can increase comfort and keep it at the max without even knowing about it.

Comfort is not one of the most important type of mood. It hardly increases 
your bar so don't bother with this one much.

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

They will talk to your in Sim language and wave their hand and complain.

Full to Empty
Comfort of Active: 48 Hours
Comfort of Lazy  : 16 Hours

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.03] Bladder

"When a Sim's gotta go, a Sim's gotta go. And there's really only one solution
to that kind of problem - get them to a toilet as fast as possible."

Bladder is not important, however it can raise your mood fast and it is by 
far the quickest draining motive your Sim can have. It drains fast and it will
normally go red in about 6-8 Sim hours. If you eat something, drink from a 
bar, drink coffee or drink from a tap, you will drain the bladder bar a lot 
faster for as long as your are eating / drinking the food. You can compare 
this to real life. The more you drink, the more you pee, the more you eat,
the more your poo. The better the toilet (expensive) the faster you get rid
of your red bladder

Not every important to your mood but take care of it anyway, you don't want to
have your Sim taking a leak on their favourite clothes.

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

This action should be highly avoided (means going to the toilet ASAP.) Your 
Sim will have an accident (that is how it is described in the game.) What I'm
saying is that your Sims will pee their pants if your have to go but you 
don't. It will release your red bladder bar all the way up to green in a clear
shot, however, your hygiene will be completely red. This will happen to 
toddlers but you do not see the drama that is shown.

Full to Empty
16 Hours

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.04] Energy

"Nothing replaces a good night's sleep, but in a pinch Sims can settle for a
nap on the couch, a snooze in the recliner, or a steaming cup of coffee to 
boost their energy."

Energy is semi important. It is required to have a nice green energy bar
before you go to work or school, but it drains like a turtle running a 100m
race. Body work, such as weightlifting or swimming drains the bar like hell.
The better the sleeping thing is (couch, bed, recliner) the better the energy
bar gets refilled.

This motive has hardly any say in the mood factor, however, you can fall 
asleep on the floor if you don't take care of this one.

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

If you energy is nothing left, your Sim will fall asleep on the spot, either
standing up or sitting on the floor. This improves your energy, but at a slow
speed. Like bladder, something will take a hit, and in this case, it is your
comfort. If swimming and you run out of energy, your Sim will go to heaven
because they will drown.

Full to Empty
Energy of Active: 24 Hours
Energy of Lazy  : 16 Hours

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.05] Fun

"Fun means something different to everyone. Some Sims may prefer reading while
others like watching TV. Most Sims will enjoy playing a game of pinball or
darts with other Sims."

Fun is fairly important. It can cause a bad mood if fun is red, but it is a 
breeze to maintain. To improve fun, do something fun (duh). Serious Sims will
have fun reading books, playing chess and reading the newspaper. Playful Sims
will have more fun playing Group Activities like darts. Everyone will enjoy
TV and pinball machines. The more expensive the fun object is, the faster the
fun bar will be filled.

This is the most important motive for skill building. All work and no play 
make your Sim, something, something. If you want to build any skill, it is
sure that without a green bar of fun, you won't learn anything.

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

Nothing except to refuse to do anything and complain.

Full to Empty
Fun of Playful: 22 Hours
Fun of Serious: 40 Hours

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.06] Social

"Sims are friendly creatures that crave social interaction. They can fulfill
their needs by interacting with friends, family and neighbors. The telephone
is a great way for Sims to invite people over or to catch up on the latest 
gossip."

Social is very important in the game, next to hunger. It drains fast (which is
what I really hate as it can take ages to increase.) Go too red and a bunny 
lands smack down on to your house which only the red social Sim can see. You
can do whatever you want (Kisses and Hugs improve social fastest.) Social can
increase when you talk when you eat dinner, talking to someone on the phone,
bathing the baby, etc. If you have lots of friends, chuck a party

Social has an important swing in mood. Without it, you will never reach will
green. E-mail spam is the best way to increase social in a nick of time.

Oh, and the Social Bunny is a reference to a disturbing movie called Donnie
Darko, thanks to Jessica Dahl for pointing that out. 

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

Same as fun, do nothing until it is increased. Oh and to COMPLAIN. 

Full to Empty
Social of Outgoing: 22 Hours
Social of Shy     : 40 Hours

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.07] Hygiene

"Taking a shower might seem like a usual part of any Sim's routine, but it's
surprising how often it gets overlooked and how low this motive can get.
Taking a bath is a more relaxing solution if the Sims can find some extra 
time."

Hygiene is important, moreso if you what to be a social animal. It drains
slow unless you are weightlifting or swimming. Smelly Sims will have a green
cloud around them (ewww cloud) and other Sims will not want to have any social
interactions with them, so they fail. To increase hygiene, wash your hands in
a sink, take a shower or a bath.

Has a slight effect on mood and certainly on other Sims. If you think that 
hygiene has no real meaning in the Sims 2, think again.

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

If you have low hygiene and no bath tub, hot tub or a shower, your Sim will 
try to give themselves a sponge bath in the sink. No Sink means that it will 
stay red till you buy something.

Hygiene of Neat  : 48 Hours
Hygiene of Sloppy: 16 Hours

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.08] Environment

"Decorations and landscaping around the lot will affect the environment. Sims
like bright, clean spaces with plenty of color and light. A well kept house
and yard will surely fulfill this need."

Environment is not important but can turn a very good mood to a very crappy
good mood. It changes room to room as they are separated by a door. Windows
will increase the environment, the more light there is, the better. Also, art
will affect the mood. The outside of the house is the most important as your
Sims will go to work with this environment score. This bar will increase or
decrease from room to room, unlike other bars with increase and decrease over
time. The original Sims will know that environment is changed from the "Room"
score in the Sims 1.

Trash on the floors like green bottles and plates that have green clouds 
around them will decrease the score. Old newspapers, weeds and untrimmed 
hedges will also decrease the score. If your house is really filthy, there 
will be cockroaches, which will really lower the score. 

Outside, place trees and shrubs to increase the score as when you go to work,
the outside environment will have a say between promotion or no promotion.

Environment will be a concerning factor in your mood. A good can go bad if the
room is a bombzone. Make it clean or you are stuffed.

********************
*Desperation Action*
********************

There is no action for the Environment however, they will whine at any
possible moment to clean up the mess. Best to send the children to do it, 
since they don't have an Environment bar. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[8] Semi Skills

This chapter will outline skills that are hidden by other main skills. These 
skills are yoga, meditate and cooking (cooking chart)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.01] Yoga

Yoga is achieved when your Sim has a body skill of 3. To go yoga, click on 
your active Sims and click "Do Yoga." You learn more techniques if your do
more Yoga. It increases your body skill at the same time. Note that they will
stop doing Yoga if that fall down and make a fool of themselves. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.02] Meditate

Meditate is acquired when you have a logic skill of 3. You click on your 
active Sim and click "Meditate." You lose no needs on your status bar and they
don't change when meditating. That means that you don't need to pee while 
meditating which is a blessing. After 14 overall hours of meditating, you 
learn how to teleport while you meditate.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.03] Cooking

Cooking is a main skill but here is listed the food your can cook with each
cooking level. Food will have flies and go bad after about 8 hours after they
were cooked. Thanks for Jessica Dahl again for pointing out that if you have
a serving platter that is about to go off in 2 hours, pulling a plate from 
the platter will give the new dish another 8 hours while the serving platter
will still go off in 2 hours. This also applies to Pizza as well.

[9] Age Groups

New in the Sims 2 is age groups. This is how you tell how do a Sim is. As they
grow older, the age groups changes slowly till they reach Elder and pass on.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.01] Baby	

To get a baby, you must have a female and male adult. They must have a
lifetime relationship of at least 70 (lower bar) and a current relationship
(higher bar) of about 90+. Now to make a baby. Have your two sims relax 
together in the bed or in the hot tub. Use one sim and click on the other. 
Now you click on the option of "Try for Baby" and they will do a WooHoo. I 
will warn you that having a "Try For Baby" in the hot tub is a lot less
successful than in the bed. If it is successful, you will hear part of the 
song "Rock a Bye Baby." If not, try again.

Your female Sim is now pregnant. It takes 3 days for your Sims to give birth.
On the first day, she will have "Morning Sickness." From then on, every day
for 3 days, your Sim's belly will grow bigger and bigger. Once the 3 days are
up, your Sim will give birth. Every other Sim around the house will come and
watch your Sim give birth. The Sim will have their green arrow broken into
two, with the smaller one being given to the baby.

There is another rarer way to get a baby. Have any Sim (adult) stargaze at 
night between 7:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. using the telescope. Aliens will abduct
your Sim and their needs will be randomized throughout the situation. Once
they come back, they will be pregnant, this INCLUDES males. When they give
birth however, it will be an alien sort of child, green skin and black eyes.
Note that teens can be abducted, however, they cannot have children. 

Like the Sims 1, you do not have control of the baby, so you must guess what
it wants. You can play with it, feed it (bottle from the fridge), cuddle it
and bathe it (in the sink). The baby will sometimes have a green trail around
it, so then you have to change a diaper! Take good care of it or the social
worker will come and take away your baby. The baby will become a toddler in
3 days.

SPOILER ALERT

If you eat spaghetti when your female Sim is having a child, there is a higher
chance of the baby becoming a pair of twins!!!

END SPOILER

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.02] Toddler

A toddler is the older form of the baby. You can control the toddler now. You
can have it learn some skills like creativity. The status of the toddler is 
the same except it has removed 2 bars, Comfort and Environment. You can do
more with it now. Your Sims has more interactions with it such as bathing it
in the bath tub, talk to it, etc. You can teach the toddler 3 things with the
adults. Teach it to Walk, Teach it to Talk and Potty Train it. They also have
skill building available to them, however, you will need specific items to
train those skills. 

If you hire a Nanny, everyone can leave the baby at home while the nanny looks
after it. However, the Nanny will teach it to walk and talk so you won't have
the chance to teach it yourself. Your Choice. If you don't look after it well,
the toddler will be taken away by the infamous Social Worker. After 5 days, 
the toddler will become a child. Note that the Nanny is a lazy *** ** * *****
and will make food, even when the child is not hungry, walk around in your
house and watch TV. Rarely do they actually do any work. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.03] Child

A child is more like the adult Sim now than ever before. The status bar is 
only missing the bar environment now. All 7 skill sets are available to the 
child now. It is just like an adult except for the major actions which an
adult can do. It can't cook, WooHoo, make out, etc. Your Sim child will have
to go to school (groan) from 9am to 3pm (carpool at 8am) Monday to Friday. 
Your Sims parents have the option of having a private school accept your child
by calling the headmaster from the phone. Look after the child well for it can
be taken away by the social workers. After 8 days, the child will become a 
teenager.

The only exception to the child not being able to cook is using their little
oven to bake muffins. After a few cooking skill points, they won't even burn
their muffins!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.04] Teenager

A teenager is only a step away from the adulthood. The teenager has more 
access to social interactions like kissing and others. They can cook and they
still have to attend school. The time is from 9am to 1pm (carpool at 8am). 
That is 2 hours taken away. They attend Monday to Friday. You can get them
into a private school as well. You can get a job for your teen in any of the 
ten job groups by they only have 3 levels in them. Jobs start at about 3pm
Sim time. After 15 days, your teenager is an adult. Unlike children, you 
can leave them at home without fear of the social worker coming along and 
kidnapping them. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.05] Adult

The adult is the adult Sim in the Sims 1. The are smart and know what to do 
around the house. They have full access to all the social interactions except
for the child ones (cops and robbers, etc). The Sims can get engaged, married
and joined (for same sex couples). They can move out and find their own place.
They have 10 levels in every job set career. When they earn money, they have
some of the money as private money. They can have babies and have free reign.
After 29 days, they will become elders.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.06] Elder

An elder has the access of social interactions like an adult. Their job set 
however is the same as an teenager, so there are 3 job levels per career. If
the elder keeps a high aspiration and a good mood, you elder will die of old 
age. This will happen when the elder is about 15 - 25 Sim days since they
turn elder. If they had a job as an adult, they retire with a fraction of the
pay. 

After the elder dies, their private money and wealth is spilt up and given 
as an inheritance. The higher the dead Sim's aspiration and higher the 
relationship with the other Sim's means that more money will be given to that
particular Sim. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10] Aspirations

New to the Sims 2 is aspirations. These is a Sim's wants and fears. This is
also related to their dream. They have 5 dreams or destiny. They are Fortune,

[10.07] Rewards

For completing your Sim's aspirations, you earn aspiration points. The points
can be spent on rewards for your Sim. 

All the objects should only be used if their (Sim's) aspiration meter is at
platinum or gold. This is because of the harmful side effects that may incur
if it is not used properly.

************
*Money Tree*
************

"In a discovery that sent shockwaves through the parent community, scientists
at the Institute of Sim Botanical Studies have found that money does indeed
grow on trees ... as long as one keeps them watered."

Aspiration Points Needed: 3,000
Uses: Unlimited
Effect: Drops money every eight hours. Guests will try to steal the money.

If successful, you collect §40.

If unsuccessful, you only collect §1.

to chuck this out and spend another 3,000 points to get another one. You 
should water it just after collection and it will be fine. 

***************
*Noodlesoother*
***************

"Shrouded in mystery, the Noodlesoother's mood elevating effects are well
documented but poorly understood. Some maintain that the weak electrical 
current it generates produces euphoria and contentment. Still others contend
that the Noodlesoother contains transdermal Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhabitors. A
third school swears that the helmet's tiny, glove hands and googly eyes
are positively adorable."

Aspiration Points Needed: 5,000
Uses: One full Sim day (24 Sim hours, when the light is off, its finished)
Effect: Gives a mood boost.

will drop. When the Sim wakes, the Sim will remove the helmet.

*********************************
*Pasteur's HomoGenius Smart Milk*
*********************************

"Is your toddler moving slowly through a fast-paced world? Get their mental
engine in overdrive with Smart Milk! After a Smart Milk bottle-feeding, your

Uses: 5
Effect: Decrease time need to teach a toddler to walk, talk and potty-train

and the colour will depend on whether it was successful or not. 

*************
*Cool Shades*
*************

"Eyes are the windows to the soul, and these Cool Shades provide the most
effective window-dressings for your Sim's inner cool. Socially awkward? Just

Uses: 5
Effect: Success rate of Social Interactions will increase

**************************************
*The Eclectic and Engimatic Energizer*
***************************************

"Does your Sim need a little pick-me-up? The technology that powers The
Energizer is puzzle wrapped in an enigma, held together with copious amounts
of duct tape and bits of twine, and reported to be beyond the ken of mortal
Sims. Bit all you need to know is that a quick visit to the Energizer will get
your Sim's motor running! Only five uses allowed for this addictive item."

Aspiration Points Needed: 14,000
Uses: 5
Effect: Refills your motives five times before you have to buy a new one

If successful, all needs will be maxed out

If unsuccessful, all needs will bottom out but your Sim won't die.

the needs from zeroing. 

**************
*Thinking Cap*
**************

"Also known as "Thinking Person's Silly-Hat-With-A-Lightbulb," the Thinking
Cap allows for a free flow of ideas in both directions, increasing skill 
building abilities and the ability to both teach and learn. Wear with caution 
- extended use of the Thinking Cap may cause enervation, loss of skills, and 
possible surface burns to the scalp.

Aspiration Points Needed: 16,000
Uses: One full day (24 Sim Hours)
Effect: You gain skill points faster, as well as teach and learn faster from
        objects that teach things.

If successful, your Sim will learn at double the normal rate. You teach 
toddlers at a faster pace. You will teach at double the rate. 

If unsuccessful, your energy will drop, your Sim will pass out and you will 
lose a random skill point.

********
*SimVac*
********

"The SimVac puts the "suck" in succubus! Equip your Sim with the SimVac, and
look for an unwitting victim ... err ... we mean, a willing individual with 
whom you share a friendly rivalry. Operate the SimVac on them and watch as you
... liberate ... their Aspirations and Skills and make them your own."

Aspiration Points Needed: 17,500
Uses: 5
Effect: Take either Aspiration Points or Skill Points from one Sim and give
        it to you

If successful, your Sim will either take Aspiration Points or a Skill Points
of your choice from a target Sim. You'll lose relationship points with the 
target Sim and cancel a love or a crush. You will take 3000 Aspiration Points
if the target is controllable but the effect will be random for a non
controllable Sim (townie)

If unsuccessful, the target Sim will do what was intended to do to them. This
means that the reverse will happen. The target Sim drains your Aspirations
Points or a Skill Point and your motives will go down.

**********
*Love Tub*
**********

"Who can resist the sensual appeal of soft lighting, warm water, and sizzling
romance? Just about no one if they're soaking with your Sim in the Love Tub,
that's who! No need to check to see if your Sim's skin is getting pruny, 
either ... when the candles go outs, it's time to retire to a private place.
Ahhhh yeah!

Aspiration Points Needed: 20,000
Uses: Four Sim Hours (When the candles go out, it is a normal Hot Tub)
Effect: Romantic Interaction in the tub is a guaranteed success

If successful, Interactions in the tub will succeed more often and you net 
more relationship points because of this.

If unsuccessful, there are no harmful side effects.

****************
*Elixir of Life*
****************

"Perfect for those who like their idle water-cooler chats to go on for ages
... literally! Gather round this decorative glass urn and sip the sweet nectar
of prolonged youth as your Sims resists aging."

Aspiration Points Needed: 30,580
Uses: 5
Effect: Gives your Sims few extra days before turning elder

If successful, you will have an extra 3 days before your turn elder. That 
means that if your have 15 days before you are an elder, you now have 18 days.
If you have just came from the teenager range (i.e. 29 days till elder), you
will not revert to the teenager age group, you will have 29 days before you
are an elder. There is no change. The max you can push it up to is the age
you have to grow. Therefore, you have no 32 days only 29.

If unsuccessful, you will get 3 days closer to elder. That means that if you
are 15 days from being an elder, you will have 12 days left. If you have less
than 3 days before you turn elder, you will be pushed into the next age group.
If you are 3 days before you die of old age, you die.

[15] Chance Cards - Adult

Chance Cards are things that happen at work. They are scenarios that you have
three options to. Two of the options let you go something and the third is to
ignore the situation altogether, however, if you succeed in making the right
decision, the rewards are high. The chances of success are based on one of 
your Sim's skill sets and depending on how high it is, it will determine the
level of failure or success. So really, it isn't all that 50/50 of a chance. 

If you see a chance card that is not here, feel free to send them me, even
a picture of the dialogue box but it better not be a virus.

*****************
*Campaign Worker*
*****************

While working on the phones at the campaign office, ____ receives a call 
from a reporter claiming to be from the SimCity Herald. The reporter says
she just has a few questions about the campaign. ____ could go and bother 
the council member's personal assistant, or answer some questions himself.

"Get Assistant" 85% Chance
____ squeezes out of the tightly packed phone bank and goes to look for
the council member's personal assistant, whom he finds embroiled in three
conservations and one phone call already. ____ informs her that there is a 
woman from the Herald on the phone with some questions. The assistant gives
____ the "okay" sign and mouths the worlds "thank-you." ____ receives 1
charisma skill point.

"Get Assistant" 15% Chance
____ tries to free himself from the sardine tin can of campaign workers all
busy answering phones. As he squeezes out of his chair and out from 
underneath his section of the folding card table, he trips over his table,
ripping the entire bank of phones out of their sockets, and effectively
hanging up the reporter. ____ is forced to pay §65 to replace his phone. 

"Answer" 15% Chance
____ informs the reporter that he'd be happy to go on the record in response
to any questions directly pertaining to the campaign. After answering three
or four questions, the reporter thanks him and ends the call. ____'s name
appears that night in the evening paper, attached to some eloquent quotes
which perfectly toe the party's line. ____ is immediately promoted to
Intern.

"Answer" 85% Chance
____ tells the woman on the phone that he'd be happy to answer any of her
questions, seeing that he IS an offical Campaign Worker. After a few strange
questions, included "Where does the council member normally dine out?" ____
begins to suspect that something is amiss. That evening a local tabloid runs
an expose on the council member and quotes ____ severely out of context.
There's no excuse ____ can make, and he's fired on the spot.

********
*Intern*
********

The controller has a stack of paperwork on his desk that ____ has been asked 
to read through and assign priority levels to the tasks. About halfway through
the stack, she finds some speeches that the controller has been asked to edit.
____ has an okay eye for syntax, and she knows how busy the controller is, so
she could try editing them herself, or scan the speeches into her word 
processor and run the grammer check on them.

"Edit" 85% Chance
____ carefully reads through the speeches and finds a few typos, as well as 
some really awkward syntax. She dutifully marks the errors and suggest the 
proper changes, before returning the speeches to a relatively un-cluttered
section of the controller's desk, along with a sticky note that says "Done".
The entire process has taken her almost two hours, and when the controller 
returns, ____'s barely started on prioritizing the stack of paperwork. The
controller chastises her and makes it clear that he needs an intern that will
do what she's told first, and THEN spend whatever free time she has being
industrious. ____ is sent back to work on the campaign phones. 

"Edit" 15% Chance
____ carefully reads through the speeches and finds a few typos, as well as
some really awkward syntax. He dutifully marks the errors and suggest the 
proper changes, before returning the speeches to a relatively un-cluttered
section of the controller's desk, along with a sticky note that says "Done".
When the controller gets back to her desk, she's overjoyed at having one less
task on her plate. She scans over the documents, approves the changes, and 
sends ____ off for an extra long lunch. ____ earns 1 Logic Point.

"Grammar Check" 85% Chance
____ runs the speeches through the office scanner and sends the electronic
versions to his desktop computer. After running some state-of-the-art 
optical character recognition, he plugs the document into his word processor
and lets the built-in grammar check do its thing. It finds only two
verb-agreement issues and a couple of typos, and even though the changes
it suggests are actually worse than the errors it's trying to fix, ____ makes
the changes manually and sends the documents to the controller. She is so
pleased to have soft copies of the speech, not to mention edited versions
that she channels some funds out of the inflated road repair budget and 
tells ____ to buy himself something nice. ____ earns §500 Simoleons. 

"Grammar Check" 15% Chance
____ scans the documents, pligs them into his word processor and lets the
built-in grammar check do its thing. Upon completion he sends the 
documents off to the controller without even double-checking (trusting
in the wisdom of Microscotch's grammar check). Apparently, the controller,
trusting in ____, sent the speeches off without reviewing them either,
because a few hours later the controller gets an irate phone call from 
someone at the legislator's office. It seems as though the grammar check
somehow managed to replace the entire contents of one of the speeches with
the first two acts of "Titus Andronicus," and as inexplicable as it may
be, ____ is fired for his mistake.

**********
*Lobbyist*
**********

____'s consortium has asked him to meet with a member of the Senate and lobby
him to vote against the Llama Land perservation bill. The bill will halt the
construction on a major intercity highway that passes through a section of
wildlife reserve. ____ isn't sure how he feels about the task. He could do as
he's told, or follow his conscience and secretly lobby in support of the bill.

"Lobby For" 85% Chance
____ arranges a lavish meal at Hedman's Hideaway and meets with the senator 
to explain the interests of the group he represents. The senator is convinced
with his proposal and agrees that there are too many wild llamas in SimCity
anyway. She furthers agrees to vote against the perservation bill, and ____
earns 1 Charisma Skill Point and a §5,000 bonus.

"Lobby For" 15% Chance
____ takes the senator out to a lavish meal at Hedman's Hideaway and meets 
with the senator to explain the interests of the group he represents. The 
senator is appalled by his claim of "There are too many wild llamas in
SimCity anyway" and pledges to make her support of the bill a major
platform during her upcoming election. The next day the senator announces
her views, and ____ loses a day's pay for his failure.

"Lobby Against" 15% Chance
____ meets with the senator and explains to her that although his special
interest group has sent him to lobby against the perservation bill, he has
taken it upon himself to instead lobby in support of the wild llamas. The
senator is impressed and says that she could use someone like ____ during
her upcoming election. ____ accepts her offer and is promoted to 
Campaign Manager.

"Lobby Against" 85% Chance
____ meets with the senator and explains to her that he'd made the decision
to lobby for her support of the perservation bill. The senator looks confused.
She pauses and explains to ____ that the money from special interest groups is
the grease that keeps the political wheels of SimCity turning, and that it's
important to have pressure from both sides of every issue. ____ leaves the
meeting a bit confused and is met by a member of his consortium who hands
him a pink slip. ____ has lost his job.

******************
*Campaign Manager*
******************

____ and the senator he's campaigning for are due at a "meet and greet" within
the hour, but the senator appears to have received another delivery of 
Elderberry Nectar from her aunt in Old Town, and is passed out on her office
couch. ____ could call and cancel the publicity eavent, or get some coffee
into her and put her under the gun, groggy or not.

"Cancel Event" 85% Chance
____ calls the senator's personal assistant and informs her of the senator's
position. The assistant sighs as though she'd been expecting it and hangs
up the phone. ____ spends the next few hours looking through the senator's
speeches for the following day's press junkets and notices that one of her
speeches has been replaced with a photocopied section of Titus Androncius.
____ finds and replaces the speech, nearly avertingpolitical espionage, and
earning himself 1 Charisma and 2 Logic Skill Points.

"Cancel Event" 15% Chance
____ calls the senator's personal assistant that the senator won't be able
to make it to the evening's festivities. ____ stays to look over the 
senator's upcoming speeches, but the senator wakes up an hour later and 
is furious that ____ didn't wake her up in time to go to the publicity 
event. She hustles him up and out the door to find a cab. ____ loses 1
Charisma Skill Point for his miscalculations.

"Go As Planned" 15% Chance
____ heads to the office kitchen and microwaves some leftover coffee. It's
burnt and it's stale, but it'll have to do. He wakes up the groggy senator
and gets some coffee into her. They head off to the meet and greet, and
with ____ on one side, and the senator's assistant on the other, they
manage to navigate their way through the evening. All goes well, and ____

of duty.

"Go As Planned" 85% Chance
After pouring a pot of coffee into the senator, ____ piles her into her 
waiting car, and the two of them head off to the Royal Court Plaza for
the meet and greet. The senator can barely keep her eyes open, and it's
all ____ and the senator's assistant can do to keep her up. The evening
becomes a travesty, and a play by play recap of it appears on the 6 o'clock
news. To say the least, the senator is not pleased. ____ loses 1 Logic 
point and a day's wages.

*********************
*City Council Member*
*********************

The council has convened to discuss the renovation of a local park. The park
is in what the mayor like to call an "underfinanced" part of the city, and 
though the park has some historical significance, the surrounding housing and
public works are as equally in need of renovation. The pros and cons are 
complex, but when it comes time to vote, ____ has only two options.

"Yes" 15% Chance
The park renovation measure does not pass, and it is revealed that nearly all
other council members voted against the measure. The council is publicly
praised for its clear-headed fiscal reasoning, but ____'s name comes up in 
local media coverage as the council member who would have rather saved some
"historically decrepit" park than devote funds to an education system on the 
brink of collapse. ____ loses 2 charisma points and is left to worry about his
position in the upcoming elections. 

"Yes" 85% Chance
The park renovation measure passes, and work begins immediately on restoring
the old garden. Public support in the City Council swells in response to the
decision and renews civic interest in the areas surrounding the park. The 
council members all receive a bonus to off-set the previous year's pay cuts
and are assured of their positions after their upcoming elections. ____ takes
home §9,568 Simoleons after taxes, and earns 2 Charisma Skill Points.

"No" 15% Chance
The park renovation measure is voted down, and the funds are instead 
transferred to an ailing school system and roadways, both of which were badly
in repair. Public support in the City Council swells in response to the
decision and renews civic interest in the areas affected by the decision. The
council members all receive a bonus to off-set the previous year's pay cuts
and are assured of their positions after their upcoming elections. ____ takes
home §9,568 Simoleons after taxes, and earns 2 Charisma Skill Points.

"No" 85% Chance
The park renovation measure passes, and it is revealed that nearly all of the
council members voted for the measure. The council is publicly praised for
its "personal attachment to the community that needs to believe in a 
government that believes in the community's needs." But ____'s name comes up
in the local media coverage as the council member who would have "rather
thrown more "inadequate" funding at ailing public systems, than to spend the
money more wisely on something that might actually renew civic interest in a
community that has lost fatih in its government." ____ loses 2 Charisma Skill
Points and is left to worry about his position in the upcoming elections.

**********************
*State Assemblyperson*
**********************

Though State Assembly members are not up for re-election in the upcoming 
elections, members of Congress are, and ____'s local district doesn't have
many strong or seasoned candidates on the ballots yet. ____ is happy with
his current position, but the step to Congressman is one he'd like to make at
some point. He doesn't have the experience that most candidates do when
running for Congress, but he does have a good public following. Should he run
for Congress, or take his publicity and back another candidate of the same
party affiliation?

"Run" 15% Chance
____ throws his hat into the ring and publicly announces his plans to run 
for Congress on each of SimCity's day-time talk shows. He gains the immediate
support of his party, and after party investigators "produce" allegations 
against his opponents of misconduct, racism, negligence, and poor hygiene,
____ finds himself running unopposed with only a short while before Sims go
to the polls. The leader of the opposition declares that her party will not
be running a candidate against ____, and seeing that the SimCity government
is a bipartisan political system, ____ is prematurely promoted to 
Congressperson.

"Run" 85% Chance
____ throws his hat into the ring and publicly announces his plans to run
for Congress on each of SimCity's day-time talk shows. Everything seems to
be going well, until the opposition party investigators begin a smear
campaign that uncovers and publicises every unsavoury detail from his
private life. The mud flies, and ____ finds himself mired by accusations
of misconduct, racism, negligence, and poor hygiene. The implications are 
so negative and so general, that ____ is unable to mount a defence. He is
forced to drop out of the running, and slinks back to his office at the
legislature, losing 3 Charisma Skill Points in the process.

"Lend Support" 85% Chance
____'s party nominates a candidate for Congress, and ____ rallies his
supporters behind her. He sends his minions out to dig up every bit of dirt
they can on all of the opponents, and in the short time they have "produced"
such allegations as misconduct, racism, negligence, and poor hygiene, against
each and every member of the opposition. It looks like with ____'s support
the election is going to be a lock, regardless of whether any un-marred
candidates even dare throw their hats into ____'s mud-slinging trenches.
In gratitude, ____ receives §30,000 by way of a completely legal redirection
of campaign financing. 

"Lend Support" 15% Chance
____'s party nominates a candidate for Congress, and ____ rallies his
supporters behind her. He sends his minions out to dig up every bit of dirt
they can on all of the opponents, and in the short time they have "produced"
such allegations as misconduct, racism, negligence, and poor hygiene, against
each and every member of the opposition. It looks like with ____'s support
the election is going to be a lock, but with all his attention focused 
elsewhere, ____ has been unable to furfill many of his duties as a legislator.
"Underfinanced" areas of the city rally together and move for a vote of no
confidence in ____. ____ is forced to take a job as a campaign manager.

****************
*Congressperson*
****************

A bill has found its way to the Congress floor that if passed would designate
large sections of undeveloped waterfront as wildlife perservation area. The
Canary Breeding Ground Bill would be a no-brainer for ____, as the SimCity
Canary is an endangered species, and its habitats has been increasing
encroached upon as the City steadily expands. Yet, there is an unusual amount
of pressure coming from a number of special interest groups, and if ____
were to vote against the bill, the lobbyists would certainly make it worth
his while.

"Vote Yes" 85% Chance
____ votes in favour of the perservation bill, and goes on record championing
the SimCity Canary's right to protected breeding grounds. The bill passes, and
environmentalists herald ____'s name. He earns the respect of the 
green-thinking public and of the biological community, who name a rare type
of plankton after him, earning him 2 Charisma and 2 Logic Skill Points.

"Vote Yes" 15% Chance
____ votes yes, and the bill goes into effect, preventing the construction
of any and all new industrial expansion, including out of town highway 
upgrades, a planned international seaport, and a public transportation 
connection that would have invariably lowered the city's pollution levels,
which are as big of a threat to the canary population as their shrinking
breeding grounds. Geological surveys suggest that less than 1% of the new
protected areas might have been all that was needed to reach an amicable
compromise. ____ loses 3 Logic Skill Points. 

"Vote No" 15% Chance
____ votes against perserving the Canary's breeding ground, but the bill
passes anyway, which was what ____ really wanted, and there's nothing wrong
with simply having his NAME on record as having opposed the bill, right?
That way the canaries are saved, the lobbyists think ____ voted with them,
____ gets §40,000 big ones transferred to his off-shore account, and 
everybody's happy.

"Vote No" 85% Chance
____ votes against perserving the Canary's breeding ground, but the bill
passes anyway, which was what ____ really wanted, and there's nothing wrong
with simply having his NAME on record as having opposed the bill, right?
However, there does appear to be something wrong with getting 40,000 
Simoleons tranferred to a private off-short account as payment for having
voted against the bill. Investigators from the environmental groups
discover ____'s involvement and make the information available to the 
public. ____ denies any knowledge of the transaction and donates the cash,
as well as §10,000 out of his own pocket, to a local charity.

*Judge*

The next case on ____'s docket is a misdemeanor shop-lifting charge, which
would normally involve little more than a public defender pleading out the
defendant, and ____ assigning a small fine and some relevent community
service. But the defendant in this case is none other than the Mayor's 
favourite niece, her pride and joy, and the bane of store security guards
everywhere. The young woman has been hauled into court more times than
____ can remember, but each and every time, the judge involved dismissed the
charges on the basis of some technicality provided by the young kleptomaniac's
high-priced legal staff. The case is cut and dry. The girl is guilty, but when
it comes time for ____ to render his verdict, he pauses to weigh the 
ramifications of his decision.

"Innocent" 15% Chance
____ tells the young woman to return the goods she's stolen and to write a 
letter of apology to the store, sending her on her way with a harsh lecture
as to the evils of shoplifting. ____'s bailiff shakes her head and snorts her
dissent to ____'s decision, but within the hour, ____'s publisher informs him
that his legal thriller "Allowable Judgment," which had previously sold only
twelve copies, has sold over 25,000 copies in the last twenty minutes; all to
one anonymous corporation. ____ justifies the sales to himself as an 
"allowable" coincidence, and pockets the §25,000 in royalties.

"Innocent" 85% Chance
____ tells the young woman to return the goods she's stolen and to write a 
letter of apology to the store, sending her on her way with a harsh lecture
as to the evils of shoplifting. ____'s bailiff shakes her head and snorts her
dissent to ____'s decision. Then, as ____ leaves the courthouse, a flock of
reporters surround him. By way of barrage of mostly unintelligible questions,
they effective crucify him for throwing out his commitment to justice and
instead aligning himself with the corrupt politics of SimCity. The media
coverage is astounding. By the end of the day, overwhelming negative public
opinion leaves ____ with no choice but to resign, or face the possibility of
a grand jury inquiry into his criminal misconduct. ____ resigns and is left
without a job.

"Guilty" 85% Chance
____ explains to the young woman that no one is above the law, and that she 
has been allowed to slide for too long. He sentences the kleptomaniac to a 
week in the SimCity detention facility and forces her to pay the maximum
fine allowable by law. Apparently, the exploits of the mayor's niece had
become more widespread than ____ knew. As he's leaving the courthouse, a 
flock of reporters surround him, and by way of a barrage of mostly 
unintelligible questions, effectively congratulate him for standing up
against the corrupt politics of SimCity. ____ earns 2 Charisma and 2 Logic
Skill Points. 

"Guilty" 15% Chance
____ explains to the young woman that no one is above the law, and that she 
has been allowed to slide for too long. He sentences the kleptomaniac to a 
week in the SimCity detention facility and forces her to pay the maximum
fine allowable by law. Justice served, ____ returns to his case load with a 
positive attitude and an overall feeling of satisifaction with a job well 
done ...

As a member of the Joint Sub-Committee on Aquaculture, ____ has been asked to
spearhead an investigation into the possible connection between the military's
new sonar technology rig and the increasing number of beached whales around
SimCity. The power-that-be have categorically denied any connection between
the two events, but it takes ____ only a few hours to note that each 
documented use of the technology corresponds directly to the beaching of
multiple whales, both in time and location. ____ prepares his findings and
announces his intentions to present them to the Sub-Committee ASAP. En route
to the Senate Building, he turns a corner and spots a black helicopter
descending sliently from only a few stories above him. With no time to think,
all ____ can do is to run or hide.

"Run" 15% Chance
____ takes off running and doesn't look back. One block. Five blocks. Ten
blocks and he's at the step to the Senate building. The helicopter is nowhere
to be found. Out of breath, he ascends the marble stairs, walks onto the
senate floor, and presents his findings. Within the hour, the military's
sonar experiments have been ground to a halt by the wheels of justice, the
whales have been saved, and in the face of overwhelming public support
(and a special amendment to the city's constitution) ____ is promoted to
Mayor of SimCity.

"Run" 85% Chance
____ kicks off his dress shoes and bolts for the Senate building. The streets
are strangely empty, and as ____ looks back over his shoulder he runs 
headlong into two men in black tactical gear who have stepped out of an
alleyway. ____ falls back into the pavement and, not seeing another option,
hands over his folder of briefs to the two men, who disappear back into the
alley. ____ dusts himself off and head on to the Senate building. He makes
his case to the joint sub-committee, but further investigation reveals that
all the documents ____ cites for his findings ... never existed. Knowing full
well that no one will believe his stories of silent black helicopters, ____
agrees to resign his commission with the sub-committee, and is demoted back 
to being a District Court Judge

"Hide" 85% Chance
____ darts across the street and dives into the lobby of an office building.
Still Shaking, he recounts the recent events to the man at the front desk
who sits in awe of his tale. The receptionist excuses himself to a back room
and returns with coffee for ____, just as two men in black suits enter the
building. The taller one surveys the lobby and reports the situation into
a microphone in his shirt cuff. The receptionist backs down the hall and
returns with a woman carrying a camcorder who ushers the two men in black 
suits out of the building. She turns out to be a film director, and after 
escorting ____ to the Senate building, she offers to buy the rights to his
story. ____ reports his findings, saves the whales, and walks away with a 
movie deal worth §45,000.

"Hide" 15% Chance
____ darts across the street and dives into the lobby of an office building.
The building is empty, as is the front desk, and all of the internal doors
are locked. Still trembling, he huddles up against the desk clutching his
folder of briefs. A few minutes later the front door opens, and two 
businessmen enter the lobby. ____ breathes a sigh of relief and steads up,
ready to recount the unbelieveable events of his day. But before he's even
told them his name, the taller of the two begin speaking, "____, you'll make
things much easier on yourself is you just hand over the folder and forget
this ever happened." ____ heart sinks. Not seeing any other options, he 
hands over the documents and later reports to the sub-committee that he was
unable to find any conclusive evidence. Dejected, ____ loses 1 Charisma
and 1 Logic Skill Point.

Landgraab Enterprises has started a joint venture to build an international
seaport that would allow the transportation of larger volumes of goods in and
out of SimCity. A major principle in the business venture approaches ____ to
buy a large tract of city-owned waterfront property for only §1 an acre. With
current real estate prices as high as they are, §1 an acre is highway robbery,
but the construction of an international seaport could create a lot of new 
jobs in SimCity. Should ____ accept the offer?

"Yes" 15% Chance
The deal goes through, and the forecast of being the region's only 
international seaport immediately puts SimCity on the map. Foreign investors
from around the globe begin to show interest, and with only the first stages
of the seaport's construction underway, the city is already boasting its
lowest unemployment percentages in decades. The deal is viewed as being so
successful that no one notices the §30,000 "donation" Malcolm Landgrabb makes
to ____'s "private" campaign fund.

"Yes" 85% Chance
The deal goes through. Selling valuable city-owned real estate, at bargain
basement prices, in order to create jobs for a lagging economy seems like a 
good idea. That is, until environmentalists bring a recently signed bill to
____'s attention that declares the waterfront property to be protected
breeding grounds of the SimCity canary. The joint venture is forced to sell
the land back to the city, but is out of all the Simoleons that it has 
already invested into the preliminary construction. The largest shareholder
of Landgrabb Enterprises, a Miss Crumplebottom, files suit against ____
for her company's losses, and ____ loses §10,000 in legal expenses.

"No" 85% Chance
____ refuses the ventures ridiculous offer and without the waterfront 
property to build a Seaport, Landgraab's business partner opts instead to 
invest her liquid assets in a monumental trucking distribuation network. Once 
the network is in place, SimCity will have all the benefits that the Seaport 
could have added, in half the time, plus retaining the valuable waterfront 
property for other uses. And the §50,000 "donation" ____ took from the 
Landgraab's business partner can't hurt either.

"No" 15% Chance
____ refuses the venture's ridiculous offer and continues on with business
as usual. Unfortunately, business in SimCity is not so good. The unemployment
rate only continues to climb, and when news of ____'s refusal to sign a deal
that would have created hundreds of new jobs reaches the masses, the public
outcry is deafening. But when the community becomes aware of the fact that
the property in question is currently inhabited by unemployed and homeless
Sims, the irony is too much for them to endure, and in an unprecidented
recall, ____ is voted out of office and out of his job.

The place is covered with mashed potatoes and tapioca pudding, as well as some
other unidentifiable substances. ____ could spend all day disinfecting the 
place, or simply ask the custodial staff to handle it.

"Clean Up" 15% Chance
After five hours of hard labour and disinefcting, exam room 5 is the 
pinnacle of cleanliness. The manager of the paramedic unit notices all the
hard work and asks if ____ would be able to keep an ambulance clean. ____'s
been promoted to Paramedic.

"Clean Up" 85% Chance
Cleaning up an exam room isn't as simple as picking up trash like ____ does

of his assigned lab work. ____'s direct superior docks him a day's pay for
his absenteeism.

"Ask Custodian" 85% Chance

the medical commuity. ____ receives 1 Charisma point.

"Ask Custodian" 15% Chance

_____'s on her way to an emergency, and the ambulance is stuck in an extremely
congested area of SimCity surface roads.  She's got the sirens on, but there
isn't enough room for the cars to get out of her way.  She could drive the
ambulance on the sidewalk, or get out and hoof the 25 blocks carrying her med
pack and resuscitation kit.

"Sidewalk" 15% Chance
The sidewalk turns out to be easier to drive on than the roads, and _____

An oppurtunity arises for a joint venture with Landgrabb Enterprises to build
a new privately owned, but internationally accessible seaport. A new seaport
would allow many of ____'s corporations access to trade routes in other 
regions much earlier in the corporation's developmental lifespan than trucking

corporation, Landgrabb Enterprises fails to secure the capital or backing 
necessary to begin construction on their international seaport. Having used 
most of their corporate credit to allocate building materials, grease palms,

herself with it. In all the smoke and confusion, not a single officer notices
____, or rather, the quickly moving hump of cloth. She doubles back for her
briefcase and discovers that her own briefcase AND the briefcase full of
cash have both been left behind. ____ takes them both and sneaks out a side
door still under the drop cloth. She slips down into the shallows beneath

*Recruit*
*********

The sun has been relentless, and earlier in the day ____'s drill sergeant
forced the squad to run ten miles in the sweltering heat without any laces in
their standard issue swamp boots, because one of the recruits had been unable
to do up his laces in the amount of time mandated by the field manual. Now
____ has been asked to choose the proper method of discipline for a recruit
who has been caught sneaking donuts into his footlocker. ____ must decide
between placing the solider on kitchen duty, or restricting the solider's
rations to water and vitamin supplements.

"Kitchen Duty" 85% Chance
Glad for any relief from the heat, ____ enters the Drill Sergeant's quarters
and stands at attention, awaiting permission to speak. The Drill Sergeant
looks up from his desk and asks ____ if he's made the right decision. Knowing
there'd be no point to overthinking the matter, ____ stands his ground and 
declares that the guilty recruit should be placed on Kitchen Duty until such
a time as he can take control of his hunger and his weight. The Drill Sergeant
pauses and informs ____ that he agrees with him, but that he thinks this 
struggling recruit would also benefit from some "direct" management. ____ is
assigned to kitchen duty as well, and though it isn't the best time he's had,
he does manage to earn a Cooking skill point in the process.

"Kitchen Duty" 15% Chance
____ makes up his mind and wanders over to the Drill Sergeant's private
quarters. He steels himself to all the possibilities that could arise from
making the wrong choice and launches into his decision, as well as his 
long justification for why Kitchen Duty is the correct method of discipline
for the errant recruit. The drill sergeant is not only not impressed with
____'s reasoning, but he is equally disturbed by his lack of protocol in not
waiting for permission to speak. He places ____ on financial "rationing" and
____ loses a day's pay.

"Rations" 15% Chance
Glad for any relief from the heat, ____ enters the Drill Sergeant's quarters
and stands at attention, awaiting permission to speak. The Drill Sergeant
looks up from his desk and asks ____ if he's made the right decision. Knowing
there'd be no point to overthinking the matter, and that the Sergeant would
no doubt choose his response regardless of ____'s decision, ____ stands his 
ground and declares that the guilty recruit should be placed on strict
rations until such a time as he can take control of his hunger and his weight.
The Drill Sergeant is impressed with ____ decisiveness, and ____ earns 1
Charisma skill point.

"Rations" 85% Chance
As ____ is crossing behind the Shrapnel Resistance Training Facility, on his
way to see the Drill Sergeant, an announcement comes on over the loudspeakers.
"Mass rioting has broken out between SimCity and RedCity sports fans over 
which team's hospitality services make a better hot dog ... and that the Mayor
of SimCity is currently reviewing a bill which would declare war upon the 
Reds." Not wishing to be involved in any skirmish where he
 could possibly ever
find himself beginning a story with "Well
 kids, back at the beginning of the 
Wiener Wars," _____ decides it's time to make his exit: he quickly goes AWOL.
The war begins, and although it only lasts for 7 hours, the toll on the 
processed 
meat industry is staggering. _____ is, of course, fired - but it
was worth it to avoid months of picking wieners out of his hair.

**************
*Elite Forces*
**************

The elite forces are having their annual punch and pie picnic cotillion at a
local park just outside the city limits. ____ was asked to bring chips and dip
for the potluck - but forgot and showed up empty handed. The rest of the 
squad is pretty disappointed at him, and he's thinking he should probably
do something to make it up to them. He could draw upon his elite forces 
training and go on a stealth mission behind enemy lines to one of the other
squad's potluck tables, with the hopes of "occupying" some much needed
appetizers, or he could enter himself into the intersquad dance competition
and try to earn his squad some much needed respect.

"Stealth" 85% Chance
____ surveys the scene, nothing the various choke points and possible 
weaknesses in the enemy's line of defence, but it doesn't look good. ____ may
have very well have bitten off more than he can chew, and all in the name of
potluck. His mind made up, ____ selects his target: a bowl of potato salad.
With a quick step he blends into the wall and makes his way very slowly 
toward the table that holds his victim. A few seconds later, he has 
successfully made it all the way to the table unnoticed. Now's the time to
strike! He checks that no one is looking and quickly snatches up the potato
salad, then executes a roll followed by a double backflip on one hand to
return to his squadmates while evading capture. His squad is delighted
with the performance, and ____ gains 1 Body point for his adept sneaking
skills.

"Stealth" 15% Chance
____ surveys the scene, nothing the various choke points and possible 
weaknesses in the enemy's line of defence, but it doesn't look good. ____ may
have very well have bitten off more than he can chew, and all in the name of
potluck. His mind made up, ____ selects his target: a handsome cookie jar.
With practiced ease he slinks into the shadows of the wall and makes his 
way towards the target table. As soon as he gets close, he reaches out for
the cookie jar, hoping he'll be too quick to attract notice ... only to find
that another hand has beaten him to the cookies! Looking up he sees the
Drill Sergeant's eyes staring at his own. "Soldier, I think you're looking
for a little bit of discipline!" he exclaims as he pushes ____'s hand away
from the cookie jar. ____ is fined §100 for Attempting to Requisition 
Military Property.

"Dance" 15% Chance
It's useless to outfox people with the same training - dancing, however, is
____'s secret weapon. His mind made up, ____ steps towards the dance floor.
Shaking off his doubts, ____ lets the music wash over him as he starts to
move. Closing his eyes, he lets the rhythm guide his body as he dances. He
concentrates ...  he feels his body answer the music's call. Moving slowly
now, the suddenly jumping and speeding up as the music wills. Now the 
music's stopping and the competition's over. ____ opens his eyes and finds
the appreciative eyes of the crowd on him. They burst into applause, and
grinning, ____ basks in his moment, knowing that he has redeemed himself.
____ gains 1 Charisma point as §5 in tips from cheeky observers.

"Dance" 85% Chance
Realising that there is no way he can sneak pass 30 Elite Force trainees
without being noticed, ____ chooses the dance floor as his fate. As ____ 
makes his way to the dance floor, however, he inadvertently entangles
his foot on the speaker cables next to the DJ's table. Frantically, ____
kicks and squirms at the rat's nest of cables until he is freed. In his
rush, he doesn't notice the speakers tripping over until the deafening 
crash fills the room! The awful noise and the ensuing quiet have drawn
everyone's attention - and ____ realises that all hope of gaining respect is
gone, at least for tonight. ____ loses one Charisma point for his embarrassing
display.

******************
*Drill Instructor*
******************

____'s been delivered a set of especially "green" recruits that are wetter 
behind the ears than a big-eared donkey in a rainstorm. He's had them for two
days and most of them still can't lace up their boots. Half of them still
complain about having to iron their pants, and at least a third of them still
seem to be thinking for themselves. ____'s tried to teach them all the
cadences he learned while he was a recruit. He's tried putting them on ration
restrictions and kitchen duty, but the regular ways just don't seem to be
working, so it's take for phase 2. ____ can either force the recruits to
march in their underwear, or take away their rifles and make them carry
baguettes instead.

"Underwear" 85% Chance
____ musters the troops to attention and after a searing but well deserved 
beration, the fatigues comes off for a few hours of parading around in the 
rain. To ____'s dismay, this seems to delight the soldiers, who parade 
around base as if wearing their best uniform. It seems that they view 
____'s attempted discipline as a perfect outlet for their rebellious nature.
____ has a lot to learn about how to handle recruits. ____'s resulting loss
in respect and command over his charges causes him to lose 1 Charisma point.

"Underwear" 15% Chance
____ musters the troops to attention and after a searing but well deserved
scolding, the fatigues come off for a few hours of parading around in the
rain. A few hours of this, and promises of more, result in a 75% reduction
in complaints and free-thinking. Impressed with his quick results, the CO
has personally commended ____ for his creative problem solving approach.
____ gains one Creativity point.

"Baguettes" 85% Chance
____ musters the troops to attention - and after a searing but well deserved
scolding, he collects all rifles and stores them in a secure locker. The
chastised recruits are then sent to the kitchen where specially prepared
baguettes are waiting for them. After their distribution, the recruits are
instructed to drill with their rifles ... err ... baguettes. Off-duty soldiers
gather around the unfortunate recruits and comment of their baguette
technique. Thereafter the squad is dubbed "The Baguette Brigade" by the whole
camp. The resulting atmosphere causes the recruits to work together to earn
their rifles back. Impressed by ____'s unorthodox but effective approach, the
CO personally promotes him to Junior Officer.

"Baguettes" 15% Chance
____ decides that to shape up the troops, they must suffer the indignity of
drilling with baguettes instead of rifles. He musters the recruits, and after
a long lecture about military training, hands them their new baguettes. As he
turns around and begins marching the recruits toward the drilling yard, he
hears a lot of noise behind him. Turning around he finds that the unruly
recruits have all eaten their baguettes! Furious, ____ places the whole
squad on extended drilling schedules. Not only has ____ failed to discipline
the recruits, but now they're acting wrose than before! It doesn't take long
before the CO notices the lack of order, and arrive to personally take
charge of ____'s squad. As punishment, ____ is demoted to Recruit.

****************
*Junior Officer*
****************

____ has been placed in command of a 30-soldier brigade of highly trained
soldiers. Since it is peacetime, his unit enjoys a regimented yet regular
life - that is, until rioting breaks out in his unit's deployment region. The
Mayor of SimCity is trapped within City Hall along with several foreign 
dignitaries who were on a state visit, and rioters have set fire to the
building. ____ is forced to think fast - he can direct his troops to storm
the building by foot, or conduct an airdrop and have them infiltrate City
Hall from above.

"Advance on Foot" 15% Chance
____ decides that an air drop, while possibly effective, might scare the 
already anxious city residents, he opts for a more low-key approach. He
instructs the officers to don riot gear and swing around the back end of
City Hall, where there is a sewer entrance a few feet from the rear entrance.
They manage to quietly work unnoticed to the main lobby, where the dignitaries
are huddled together, wheezing from the smoke. The Mayor and his party are
secreted out through the sewers and taken to a secure location, where they
wait out the rioters. ____'s commanding officer is very impressed with his
no-nonsense, stealthy approach to the rescue, and he awards ____ a §500
performance bonus. 

"Advance on Foot" 85% Chance
____ doesn't have enough confidence in his younger recruits to justify an
airdrop in such a complicated situation. Better to go in by foot and do
things the old-fashioned way. But those same "green" soldiers are unprepared
for such close contact with civilians, and one soldier inappropriately 
discharges a tear gas canister in a crowded street. The public is outraged,
and ____ is the most convenient Sim for the fall. ____ is reprimanded for
failure to control his troops, fined §1000, and loses 1 Charisma point in
the process.

"Use the Parachutes" 85% Chance
The building perimeter is surrounded by fire and rioters and ____ fears 
that they'd waste too much time battling those obstacles. He boards an
airlift with his 10 best soldiers, and they depart for the center of the
city. Yet something's just not right about the situation - dignitaries 
trapped alone in City Hall? Suddenly, ____ remembers a bomb threat a few
days prior, and the suspicious information discovered in a search. ____
places a few calls, and manages to reach a mayorial aide - who is greatly
confused at all of the commotion. "The Mayor is out of town visiting a 
neighbouring country," he explains. ____ aborts the mission, sensing a 
trap - and indeed, 15 minutes later City Hall impodes under mysterious 
circumstances. ____'s superiors are highly impressed with his intelligent
and life-saving reasoning under extreme pressure, and he receives a new
commission as Counter-Intelligence.

"Use the Parachutes" 15% Chance
____ knows that they'll lose precious time if they go on foot - those
crowds are dangerous and unpredictable. He prepares his troops and they
board an airlift, preparing to parachute down to the roof of City Hall.
As they approach, they are all shocked to see the Hall genuinely alight - 
the fires are quite persistant and there is real danger ahead. ____ jumps
first, sailing through the air - but when he lands, he manages to land on
a structurally unstable piece of roof that caves beneath his weight. ____
lands hard, and immediately senses that his leg is broken by the odd angle
and sharp pain. His well-trained group of soldiers manages to find the Mayor
and rescue their leader too - but the injury keeps ____ off his feet, causing
him to lose 2 Body skill points.

**********************
*Counter-Intelligence*
**********************

The enemy has made recent headway with its latest attempt to crack the SimCity
Security Systems Database. ____ has been assigned to launch targeted counter-
intelligence measures, but with the highly classified nature of all 
information within the agency, ____ finds himself in the embarrassing position
of not knowing exactly who the "enemy" is. He tosses a few subtle questions 
out while in the lunch line, but begins to get the distinct feeling that no 
one in the bureau has any idea who or what it is that they are fighting
against. However, orders are orders, and ____ is going to have to come up
with something. He could play it new school, unleashing a horde of his newly
coded "double-agent" firewall replicator network probes, or he could keep it
old school and go with a barrage of wire taps and traces.

"Network Probes" 15% Chance
After spending some time with data collected by his network fetch-bots, ____
decides that it's time to try out his new firewall replicator network probes.
He has designed them to be stealthy and leave no trace, so he's pretty sure
that he can use them to disrupt the work of The Enemy, while at the same
time leaving them guessing about what happened. Sure enough, as soon as he
releases his tiny agents, he sees that they have located the point of the
attack. Without hesitation he sends his probes in and disrupts the attacker's
code with a blast of binary logic. As the attacker had not been expecting such
a counter-attack, ____ is able to neutralise the vulnerability that they were
exploiting before they try again. ____ gains 2 Mechanical skill points for
this display of technical prowess.

"Network Probes" 85% Chance
____ sees his chance to try out his brand new "double-agent" network probes
to sniff out the root of the problem. Of course, he has to disable a few
system security checks to get the probes to work, but ____ isn't worried - 
he can head off any intrusion at the pass himself. When ____'s commander
asks to see him a few minutes later, ____ leaves his station unattended - 
and returns to witness a complete meltdown of the database server. Those
disabled checks allowed some very malicious agents into the system, and 
they've lost days of unrecoverable classified data, some of which has leaked
to outside sources. ____'s arrogance and disregard for protocol earns him
a dishonourable discharge from the service - he's out of a job.

"Wire-Taps" 85% Chance
____ has always been fascinated by cellular phone technology, and his days as
a l33t hacker in his youth introduced him to several sophisticated ways to
breaking into wireless conservations. Determined to trace the culprits, ____
obtains permission to execute a wide-range wireless-sweep. When the next
database attack goes down, ____ sweeps the local frequencies and manages to
find a conservation about the attack on the airwaves! By using the phone 
number he retrieves, ____ is able to track the conservants through their
service providers, which eventually enables warrants and arrests in the case.
The department is ecstatic, and ____ reaps a windfall of §2000 thanks to an
internal reward for the criminals' capture.

"Wire-Taps" 15% Chance
Upon receipts of his orders, ____ decides the best approach is to immediately
tap all communications lines that lead to the database, thereby catching the
incoming transmission of the hack, and hopefully figuring out where it's 
coming from. If things go right, he'll have the whole thing wrapped up as
soon as another hack attempt is made. Unfortunately for ____ things do not
go right. A short time after the wire taps are in place, the telltale signs
of a hack in progress start flashing on ____'s screen ... but his wiretaps
see no unusual traffic. It seems the hacker has outsmarted him within the
building, rather than doing this long-distance! Before ____ has a chance
to react, the hack is completed and some information is downloaded. Once
word gets out that someone in the department is to blame, everyone, including
____, is docked a week's pay.

****************
*Flight Officer*
****************

Growing weary of all the "Peacetime" restrictions - no dog-fighting with
commercial airliners, no buzzing private control towers, no launching laser
guided missiles into peaceful civilian protests - _____ and his fellow Flight
Officers decide to make a little fun for themselves. They hop in a couple of
fighter jets and head out to international waters, where the rules get a bit
more "fuzzy" when it comes to 'who blew up who first with a heat-seeking
computer aided anti-aircraft missile'. Within minutes, _____ spots a pair of
bogeys who are clearly far from home, maybe even as far as RedCity - but
wherever they're from, things are about to get a whole lot more interesting.
Should _____ engage the enemy, or attempt to establish radio contact and warn
the unindentified aircraft that they are trespassing in SimCity controlled air?

"Engage" 15% Chance
Knowing there is no tiome to lose, ____ activates his weapons system and locks
onto the unidentified aircraft. Following standard operating procedure, he then
duly warns the unidentified aircraft that it's about to be shot down unless it
leaves ... immediately. Receiving no reply, ____ decides to use his Mark 83
Radar Guided Homing Fire and Forget Exploding Missiles, or M83RGHFFEM for
short. He fires a volley from 44 miles away, and waits for his computer while 
it confirms his kill. Only seconds later, ____ sees confirmation that he has 
hit his target. His radar also confirms that the target is going down. ____
notes the coordinates and returns home. Of course, none of this is offical	
or on the record, and it never really happened ...  at least so says the
SimCity Air Force. ____ is quietly rewarded for his service to his country 
with a §3000 bonus in his paycheck.

"Engage" 85% Chance
____ hadn't really expected to meet up with any aircraft way out in the
middle of nowhere - and in his panic, he complete forgets the firing 
sequence procedures. Desperately, he reaches for his flight manual, which he
keeps handy for just such an emergency. Precious seconds slip away as ____
flips through the index looking for "Firing Missiles". After what seems like
an eternity, he finds what he needs. Relieved and back in control, ____
grabs his controls and prepares to fire. It's right around the moment when he
notices his radar screen is blank. While he was scrambling to get his airplane
ready to fire, his bogey spotted him and left the area in a hurry. Darn that
index! ____ loses 2 Mechanical skill points for his dependance upon the 
manual.

"Contact Base" 85% Chance
____ contacts the base and sets out for visual identification. Gleefully, 
____ hits his afterburners and makes full use of his g-suit as he's hit by
7Gs of acceleration. It's not long before he sees his bogey. As ____ closes
in for a better look, he describes what he sees: "Base, looks like a cylinder
from here... I can't tell what sort of jet it is.  Wait, I think it sees me, 
it's moving. In fact....it's....incredible! It looks like it accelerated to 
well over Mach 10...holy cow, it disappeared!" Hours later, ____ is welcomed
back to home base, where he's immediately debriefed and sworn to secrecy. The
SimCity Air Force quickly offloads all the recording hardware in his plane for
study. While he gets no information from his debriefers, _____ knows he's seen
something extremely unusual, and survived to tell the tale. _____ gains 1 Body
Skill point for his expert flying.

"Contact Base" 15% Chance
____ remembers how to handle contact with rogue aircraft: Inform the base and
get visual information. After raising a radio alert, ____ hits the 
afterburners and quickly closes in on his bogey. As he moves in, ____ notices
something rather unusual about his target: it's so slow that it can't possibly
be any sort of normal aircraft. Straining his neck, ____ looks around, trying
to spot it. As soon as he does, he understands what his instruments were 
telling him. It's a weather balloon! It seems some SimCity scientist's project
has drifted way out of normal operating ranges. Fortunately, for ____ there's
nothing harmful about the balloon and he can continue his patrol. 
Unfortunately, it hardly calls for the level of alertness that he caused
when he radio in his alert. Although no harm was done, ____ gains a reputation
for "crying wolf" and loses 1 Charisma point.

****************
*Senior Officer*
****************

While out on a routine inspection patrol in the rocky SimCity foothills, a 
lieutenant in ____'s division recounters a rare species of poisonous frog. 
____ spots the danger immediately and calls out a warning, but is too late, 
and the soldier drops to the ground unconscious. The ailing Sim is rushed
back to base camp. During the confusion, the frog manages to slip away
unnoticed. ____ knows that importance of identifying the poison in order to
improve the soldier's chance of recovery. As an experienced soldier, ____ is
quite capable of finding and safely capturing the frog, but it might take
too long. If he orders the rest of his unit to help him find the frog, he's
not sure that they'll be able to capture it safely. Should ____ attempt a
potentially lengthy search by himself, or should he have his squad help out?

"Search Alone" 15% Chance
____'s junior officers are visibly spooked, and he makes the call to do the
search himself. Fortunately, ____ has spent training time in outdoor 
survival - and one basic technique taught to every survival student is the art
of tracking amphibians in terrestrial environments. It's not long before ____
spots the frog and makes his move. Taking his field jacket off, he carefully
uses it to scoop up the toad, making sure that no part of the frog touches
his skin. He'll have to jet a new jacket, but there's no helping that now.
Quickly ____ radios for a EVAC and relays the frog to the hospital. A few days
later, the poisoned soldier gratefully thanks him for the rescue, and good-
naturedly sits through ____'s lecture about frog safety. ____ gains 1 Body
point for his performance in the woods, and 1 Charisma point for the added
respect he has gained from his troops.

"Search Alone" 85% Chance
Frogs can be extremely poisonous, and ____ does not want to risk anyone else
in his command looking for this potential killer - so he sets off on his own.
The ground is quite dry, and there are hardly any signs visible to his trained
eye. The woods seem devoid of life. ____ desperately tries to retrace his 
steps (and the frog's), but to no avail. It's not until half an hour later
that he spots the bright coloured miscreant hiding in the shade. He manages
to capture it and sent it back to the Hospital, but it's too late for the
soldier. Although not enough poison was present for a fatal injury, the 
soldier sustained severe trauma to his nervous system and will likely be
discharged from the service. Devastated by the news, ____ feels completely 
lost as guilt due to his failure destroys his self-confidence. ____ loses
1 Charisma and 1 Mechanical skill point due to his depression.

"Whole Squad" 85% Chance
This is no time to be a hero: every second counts! ____ orders his officers
to help search for the missing frog. It's not long before the trail is found,
as most officers are proficient in amphibian tracking in terrestrial 
environments (one of the most popular elective classes at the Academy). They
find the frog hidden under some leaves. Together, the officers fashion a 
makeshift cage and trap the frog without bringing it into contact with 
their skin. Once they have completed the capture, they rush off in an
airlift to the hospital. The medical staff quickly determines the poison as 
soon as they see the frog, and they quickly apply the antidote to the 
affected area. The doctors commend the team, as it turns out the poison
would have been crippling for the soldier had they not administered the 
exact antidote as quickly as they did. ____ gains a performance bonus of §5000
for his role in the rescue.

"Whole Squad" 15% Chance
There is no time to be a hero: every second counts! ____ orders his officers
to ghelp search for the missing frog. It's not long before the trail is found,
and the officers close in for the capture. Before ____ can react, several of
them reach forward and grab the frog ... only to fall senseless to the ground.
In their haste, ____'s officers have forgotten their frog safety training!
Frantically, ____ calls for an airlift for the stricken officers. The

"One dreary morning, ____ receives a confidential memo informing him that 
several recruits have been accused of leaking sensitive government information
to enemy factions. While this would ordinarily be a cut-and-dry case (court
marshal and dishonourable discharge, plus jail time), one of the accused is
the son of a high-ranking, powerful General. Over the course of the day, ____
is "informed" that perhaps it might be best if he quietly pardoned the
offenders and let them off the hook. ____'s conscience is torn, should he 
stick to the rules and risk the General's wrath, or should he take the easy
way out?

"Book 'em" 85% Chance
____ refuses to be bullied by someone just because they outrank him. Ignoring 
the veiled warnings, ____ arranges for a swift trial of the soldiers, and 
ensures that every protocol is followed to the letter. As the date of the 
court marshal approaches, ____ finds himself receiving death threats and 
harrssing phone calls and emails - yet he does not arrange for a pardon.
During the trial, the General's son drops a bomb, he reveals that he was 
framed by his own father for attempting to expose his dad's scandalous
traffic in government secrets. The evidence produced by the defence is 
overwhelming - the soldiers are acquitted, and the General is jailed for
treason and removed from the Service. In the course of the proceedings, ____
is hailed for standing up to the General's pressure - so much so that the 
new General sees to it that ____ receives a promotion to Astronaut.

"Book 'em" 15% Chance
____ fears for his job safety, but at the same time he can't stand by and
watch the General make a mockery of the military. He informs the appropriate
individuals about the accusations and arranges for a court date. Almost
immediately, life on the job becomes unbearable. "Mysterious" computer
failures, thefts from his office, and threatening phone calls abound. ____
is astonished that his coworkers are willing to sit by and watch this
happening to him. Eventually, one of ____'s mentors recommends that he
take an extended leave until things cool off. Facing no other option, ____
takes a sabbatical. When he returns, ____ finds that he has lost 1 Body
point and 1 Charisma point during his rest, but is otherwise left alone
in the aftermath of the trial.

"Pardon 'em" 15% Chance
____ is so close to Astronaut that he can taste it - and while it feels
somewhat strong, this seems like the perfect way to move up. An anonymous
tipster informs ____ that a pardon would be "amply rewarded." ____ heeds the
whispered warnings and threats, and paves the way for a swift, silent pardon.
He waits for his reward, and in a few days he is wired §30,000 from an
anonymous donor "for his continued silence". But the promotion ____ was hoping
for never comes - and ____ later discovers that not only was the General's son
guilty, but he continued to abuse his position after the pardon. ____ is left
feeling betrayed, having only §30,000 in "dirty" money to console him in shame
and disappointment.

"Pardon 'em" 85% Chance
The General is an intimidating person and ____ fears for his safety if he does
not acquiesce to his wishes. ____ quietly admits defeat and pulls some strings
in order to arrange for a full pardon in the matter. It is only a few weeks
later that the news breaks: the division is being investigated by the
Government for allegations of corruption and wrongdoing. The General is 
charged and convicted of treason, but in the process he implicates ____ as a 
conspirator for his role in the pardons of his guilty son. ____ is
reprimanded, fined §10,000 and is demoted to Senior Officer

*Astronaut*
***********
____ and his crew have been training to command the first remote probe to land
on the surface of Venus, but recent satellite images have revealed what may be
the final stages of a mobile launch platform in the heart of RedCity. This 
could be bad for ____'s career; its appears as though RedCity may beat him in
the space race. But ____ has a secret weapon: It's a mission that would use
similar technology as the Venus lander, but will transform the module into a 
submersible to explore the vast uncharted depths of the ocean floor. ____ 
could put the Venus mission on overdrive and attempt to land the module 
prematurely, or ____ could scrap the mission and put "Operation Unknown Ocean"
into full effect.

"Explore Venus" 15% Chance
____ finds Venus far more exciting than the bottom of our own ocean. At the
moment, the SimSpace Program can use all the good publicity it can get, and 
winning the Venus challenge is worth a lot of media points. Before ____ really
has the time to think about it, the countdown has started and he's sitting
at the Virtual Console, getting the feel of the probe. With practiced ease,
he starts the landing procedures. He knows that the signal lag caused by the
huge distance between Venus and Earth is so severe that if anything goes 
wrong, the probe will be history before he knows it. But ____ manages a 
perfect maneuver. Without so much as a single engine misfire, the sturdy
SimCity Venus Probe sets down on the basaltic Venusian rocks. The weather
today is very mild: only 894 degrees Fahrenheit. A very nice day on Venus, 
and a very good day for ____ and the SimSpace Program. ____ is promoted
to General.

"Explore Venus" 85% Chance
The decision is made to let ____ attempt the remote landing of the Venus
probe. Very carefully, he guides the probe down - but ____ can't help thinking
that there's something very wrong. He's not quite sure what the problem is, 
but the feeling won't go away. Unable to put words to his feeling of doom, he
continues the landing procedure. Carefully, he watches the telemetry and
applies thrust to brake the probe - but his stomach sinks as he sees that 
the probe is not responding! What's going on? Suddenly ____ understands: he'd
completely forgotton about the time delay between when the signals are
sent from Venus, and when he receives them on Earth! The braking thrusters
eventually fire, but too late - ____ watches in horror as the probe smahes
onto the surface of Venus at a disastrous velocity. It seems that this mission
is over, as is ____'s career in the military

"Explore Ocean" 85% Chance
Venus is an extremely harsh environment. ____ knows that there is nothing he 
can do to speed up the landing of the probe. If he wants praise for 
discovering uncharted territories, he's going to have to look in Earth's own
oceans. Without any hesitation, ____ storms into the SimSpace board room and
purposes his aquatic plan. Expertly avoiding the question about how he funded
his side-project, ____ convinces everyone that his project is exactly what 
they need. In a matter of minutes, activity bustles in ____'s office as
scientists cram into it to hear his briefing. Just a few day's later, word of
the expeditation "leaks" and antipication is high. With such exciting 
explorations going on close to home, people forget about Venus and "ocean-
fever" grows. ____'s plan succeeds beyond expectations, and ____ is awarded
a §50,000 National Innovators Award for his project.

"Explore Ocean" 15% Chance
Knowing that there is no purpose in attempting a haphazard Venus landing 
that could endanger the program, ____ decides to unveil his ocean exploration
project and proposes it as a solution. He prints out copies of his reports,
gather his pile of dusty proposals, and lugs them to the Space Director's 
office. After spending half and hour introducing his pet project, the
general convene for a short meeting. Quicker than he thought possible,
____'s office is ransacked of all material pertaining to his project so that
SimSpace can fully develop the program. Unfortunately for ____, he's 
deemed too important to the Venus project and he's permanently assigned
to see it through. Meanwhile, development on the Oceanus probe continues - 
without ____'s help. To add insult to injury, ____ is fined §25,000 for
misappropiration of government assets and personal project use.

*********
*General*
*********

It's a quiet day in ____'s posh, oak-paneled office suite when his private
phone springs to life. Picking it up, ____ is mildly astonished to recognize
the President's voice on the other end of the phone line. Apparently, there is
credible evidence that a major satellite may be breaking orbit irregularly,
putting it at a crash risk with several highly populated areas. It's a serious
concern, and the President wants ____'s advice as a vertain of land, air and 
space. Should they make an emergency shuttle launch to intercept the 
satellite, or should they attempt to use their sophisticated missile system to
vaporise the falling satellite into harmless debris?

"Intercept" 85% Chance
____ doesn't know much about the satellite, but it sounds easy enough to send 
up a spaceship and knock the satellite back into alignment. He informs the 
President that they should send up a crew to correct the situation - but in a
fit of heroism or egoism, he insists on leading the crew personally into 
space. Despite protest from some of his colleagues, ____ makes good on his 
plans and launches into orbit with the rest of his crew. But ____ hasn't been
up in space in ages. He becomes disoriented during a spacewalk at the 
satellite and accidently damages a reflector with his umbilicial cord. ____'s
crew has to bail him out since his cord has become damaged, and he spends the
rest of the mission onboard the spaceship, watching his team become heroes. 
____ loses 2 Mechanical Points and 2 Charisma Points as a result of his
stubborn "heroics", and is demoted to Astronaut to work on his spacewalking
skills.

"Intercept" 15% Chance
____ doesn't want to lose that satellite, and he confidently informs the 
President that they should send up an intercept team immediately to correct
the satellite's orbit, and to junk it if need be. ____ hand-picks the team 
and stations himself in Mission Control, ready to give commands to the team
at a moment's notice. The astronauts were trained by ____ himself, and they
skillfully manouver the robotic arm to snag the delicate equipment and change
it's course - without knocking it into a collision course with the planet.
Several specialists go out and work on the satellite directly, correcting
the navigational systems and repairing the broken reflector that started it
all. ____'s leadership and his skilled team manage to save the billion-
Simoleon satellite, and prevent any risk to the planet. ____ is awarded
§20,000 as a performance bonus, and his team become the stuff of SimSpace
legend.

"Vaporize" 85% Chance
____ does a quick analysis and determines that it's safer and cheaper to
neutralise the satellite than to try and salvage it. He gains authorisation
to use the national defence missile systems to shoot down the satellite over
the ocean. It's a risky operation, and his aim needs to be perfect - there
may not be a chance for a second shot. When the satellite is seen entering
the atmosphere, ____ descends into a buried bunker that serves as the
defence command center. With sweaty hands, he enters his command mode, takes
aim, and fires. The entire control room is silent as they watch the missile
making its way - if this misses, they're in big trouble. Like clockwork,
the missile makes it mark and destroys the satellite far from any signs 
of civilisation, and the debris falls harmlessly over the ocean. ____ is
commended and receives a §55,000 reward for averting a disaster.

"Vaporize" 15% Chance
____ explores the options, and decides that an outer space mission is too
expensive. After talking it over with the President, ____ convinces him
that a missile intercept is the best and most direct option. ____ spends
the next few days in intense planning meetings. He begins to realise
that perhaps the spaceship approach is the better plan, and that's out of
his league, but ____ never speaks up or asks for assistance, stubborning
wishing to complete this task on his own. When the day comes and the 
satellite falls to Earth, ____ descends into Defence Command, prepares and
fires - but his calculations were wrong! His missile barely grazes the
satellite before self-destructing, and the military is forced to evacuate
part of a coastal city. The resulting impact costs billions to repairs
and scares the public - and ____ loses his job due to his poor judgement.

plants core reactor has been severely damaged. Feeling responsible for 
much of the destruction, ____'s alter ego donates §25,000 to the 
reconstruction efforts.

*Dishwisher*
************

It's another dreary night, and ____ is up to her elbows in slimy dishwater
with an embarrassing case of dishpan hands. She has one last bit of cleanup
to do for the night when the head chef, Lefromage, runs frantically into the
kitchen, arms flailing like a dying lobster. "Mon Dieu! A critic has come,
and ze staff has gone home for ze night! Can you help cook?" Can ____ trust
herself not to set the kitchen on fire, or should she stick to the dishpan
hands?

"Keep Cleaning" 85% Chance
____ doesn't feel confident enough to help prepare food, and besides - that
last stack of plates really stinks! As she's finishing her last scrubbing,
Lefromage frantically appears - the "critic" has revealed himself to be a
county health inspector! ____ frantically disposes of the wandering roaches
and cleans up the rest of the mess in the sink before giving him a tour of
the kitchen. If she had left that mess lying around, he might have shut down
the restaurant! ____'s grateful manager decides to get her a §150 bonus in 
her next paycheck as thanks for her sparkling performance.

"Keep Cleaning" 15% Chance
Lefromage is very upset at ____'s refusal. "Ze insolence!" he cries. Visibly
flustered, he does his best to finish the meal satisfactorily, but somehow
the lobster in pickle sauce doesn't seem quite right. In the end, the critic
is quite displeased with the lackluster food and promises to write an 
unfavourable review. He is true to his word: a few days after the scathing
review, the restaurant shuts down, taking ____'s job along with it. Zut
alors!

"Fire up the Burner!" 15% Chance
____ agrees to help cook, and Lefromage issues a few preparations instructions
before going out to take the critic's order. Mercifully, he choses a 
deliciously simple dish - in fact, ____ has disposed of the leftovers of this
dish so many times that she could make it in her sleep! (A few scallions
there, some orange peel here...) The critic is delighted. After securing
the rave review, Lefromage offers ____ private cooking lessons as his thanks
for a job well done, neting ____ 2 cooking points from the expert tutelage.

"Fire up the Burner!" 85% Chance
When the order comes in, chaos ensues - and ____'s peanut butter sandwich
don't help her in the slightest. She absent-mindedly sets her dishrag down
on the cook stove and starts a fire that consumes most of the dish intended
for the critic! A few overcooked escargots later, the critic leaves several
shades of red darker than the tomatoes that survived the fire. Lefromage,
serious at being misled about ____'s cooking expertise, docks her a full
day's pay for the embarrassing incident.

*********************
*Drive Through Clerk*
*********************

It's late, and ____ is working the drive-through all by his lonesome - lots of
responsibility for little pay. Suddenly, the otherwise quiet night is ruined
when local rich kid Mimi Landgrabb and some of her hoodlum friends pull up 
( ____ recognizes them by the indecent language coming through the tiny 
speaker.) From what he's heard from other employees, _____ is pretty sure 
they're going to drive off without paying. Should he fill out the order, or 
should he treat them to a bit of their own medicine?

"Fries with that?" 15% Chance
Although he's surely tempted, ____'s never been one for pranks - especially 
when they might cost him a job. Even though it will probably come out of his
salary, he fills the order and hands it off to Mimi. Much to ____'s surprise,
Mimi winks at him and hands him 200 Simoleons. "Keep the change, cutie." The
car speeds away, and ____ can't help and smile at his profitable turn of 
events. (Did she call him a cutie?) ____ pockets §150.

"Fries with that?" 85% Chance
____ dutifully fills the order to the letter, grumbling under her breath
the entire time. She reluctantly hands the greasy bags of burgers over to
Dudley's crew, and they shove a few bills in her hand before speeding
off. Relieved, ____ sets the money down and takes a deep breath! She didn't
think they'd really pay! It's not until they're long gone that she looks down
and realises that they've given her FAKE money. Looks like that §100 
Simoleon order is coming out of ____'s pocket.

"Teach them a lesson!" 85% Chance
Tired of taking flak from ungrateful customers, ____ decides to take matters
into her own hands. With a mischievous grin, she discreetly fills several
fast food bags with empty cartons. For the top of the bags, ____ grabs some
of the oldest food they've got left in the kitchen. As expected, Dudley's
crew snatches the bags and speeds off without paying - or checking their
orders. Oddly enough, they stopped showing up - to the delight of the entire
staff. ____'s creative problem solving tactics earn her 1 Creativity point.

"Teach them a lesson!" 15% Chance
Tired of taking flak from ungrateful customers, ____ dedides to take matters
into her own hands. She fills the bags with crumpled paper, adding a few
containers of French fries on top to make things seem realistic. What she
didn't expect was a hungry Dudley handing her a wad of Simoleons, then
rifling through the bag for his burger. "Hey! You tried to stiff us!" he
cries after realising what's happened. "I'm gonna tell my DAD!" The wealthy
Landgrabbs file a complaint against ____, who is quickly fired.

*************************
*Fast Food Shift Manager*
*************************

The movie theater down the street just let out and ____'s restaurant is
PACKED. (One might think they'd be full after those absurdly sized movie
drinks, but no such luck.) He's barking orders left and right when suddenly
the unthinkable happens: the Uberburger 3000 breaks down in an entirely
ungraceful puff of smoke. Now the restaurant smells like charcoal and there
isn't a burger in sight. Should he try to keep going without the Uberburger,
or take the repair into his own hands?

"Who needs Burgers?" 85% Chance
Who needs burgers anyway?  While his staff out front is explaining the
situation, _____ makes an emergency run and begins preparing some of his
ultra-secret-recipe VeggieMight burgers.  he ravenous hordes of customers are
so hungry that they'll try anything - but once they've tried his "burgers", 
they just can't get enough! When _____'s manager Jennie arrives and sees
hundreds of happy customers, it's clear to her that _____'s true calling is in
the kitchen.  _____ is promoted to Host for the VeggieMight sensation.

"Who needs Burgers?" 15% Chance
_____ sees the throngs of customers and knows that there's profit to be had.
He instructs his staff to deep-fry the hamburger patties instead of sending 
them through the Uberburger. Unfortunately, this backfires and breaks the
Frency fry fryers as well. Now the entire kitchen is filled with acrid smoke  
and an undeniable stench. The customers back out of the restaurant in horror,
and the incompetence of the staff makes the local news.  _____'s furious boss
docks §500 for the repair of BOTH machines from _____'s modest paycheck.

"Roll up those Sleeves!" 15% Chance
____ tries pressing all of the Uberburger's buttons like a three-year-old in
a spaceship, but that doesn't seem to help. In her frustration, ____ 
remembers overhearing the repairman talking about the Uberburger's powerful
air intake. Apparently, it has a tendency to suck up kitchen utensils like
a vacuum! Making sure to shut things down first, ____ unscrews the back
plate and discovers an Ultra Mega Super-sized milkshake cup embedded in the
main conveyor. She carefully extracts the cup and brings the Uberburger 
roaring back to life. ____ gains one Logic point and a modest bonus for her
cost-saving heroics.

"Roll up those Sleeves!" 85% Chance
Eager to be a hero, _____ digs up a greasy screwdriver and rolls up his
sleeves. "It's probably just a patty jammed somewhere," he thinks to himself.
Recklessly, _____ unscrews a panel despite the large "Caution" display on 
the front. As soon as the panel is removed, a small piece of machinery springs
out and bounces around the kitchen, eventually hitting the fry cook in the
head and injuring him before falling into the fryer. _____'s irresponsible
disregard for safety precautions costs him a demotion to Fast Food Order Taker
and a Logic skill point.

*Host*

It's every restaurant's worst nightmare: the party of 25 teenagers with no
reservations. They showed up on the doorstep with no warning, and they're 
getting rambunctious while they're waiting for a table. At this point, 
they're starting to annoy the other guests. ____ could tell them that there's
no room and hope they don't make a scene, or she could make room for them
by asking that last elderly group she's waiting on to leave. (They haven't
ordered anything in 40 minutes!) Who gets the boot?

"The Grandparents" 15% Chance
Grimacing, ____ approaches the table of friendly looking folks and hopes that
she doesn't offend them. It turns out that they're new to the area and they
don't know where to find a good hotel room. Coincidentally, ____'s cousin
happens to work at a nearby hotel, so she provides them with a phone number
and a very nice referral rate. Delighted, the group makes to leave, and they
hand ____ a VERY generous tip on their way out. ____ promptly seats the 
surprisingly grateful teenage group and by the end of the night she finds 
herself with a record §400 in tips and some very satisfied customers.

"The Grandparents" 85% Chance
____ walks over to the elderly group and tries to explain the situation to
them. But it's been a long day, and ____'s not watching her tone of voice as
much as she should. The patrons take offense, pointing out that they spent a
good deal of money and are now enjoying their unlimited refills of coffee.
They call over ____'s boss, and ____ is chided for being so inconsiderate
of "some of our best customers!" At the end of the night, ____'s boss 
approaches her and tells her that she's really not ready for hosting after
all. ____ is demoted to Fast Food Manager.

"Those Darn Kids" 85% Chance
____ decides it's just not going to be feasible to seat the huge group
together, and she grudgingly walks over to talk to them. As an alternative,
____ offers two smaller tables and some free appetizers [courtesy of her
stock of "emergency" freebies from the manager.] As it turns out, the
group is surprisingly willing to accept smaller tables. Apparently all of
the other restaurants in the area turned them away just because they looked
like trouble! The teens have a great time, give a nice tip, and one of them
sends a compliment to ____'s manager. Her calm decision-making earns her a 
promotion to the wait staff, where her mettle under fire will come in very
handy indeed.

"Those Darn Kids" 15% Chance
____ walks over to the teens and explains that they're very busy tonight,
and that they probably won't have room for the whole group. "Well, what's
all that space over there?" one asks, pointing at the area next to the
elderly couple. At a loss for a response, ____ asks them to leave, and the
group becomes irate. Somebody asks to speak to a manager. ____ reluctantly
fetches her boss, who quickly defuses the situation by splitting the group
up into two smaller groups and plying them with a few free appetizers. 
____ loses 2 creativity points for failing to find a better solution to
the problem.

That trail of fainting girls outside can only mean one thing - swoonworthy 
teen heartthrob Simon Simmy has arrived at ____'s restaurant! ____ has been
granted the dubious honor of serving Simmy, and the picky star is sure keeping
her hands full. He's currently demanding an expensive brand of water - 
"Vapour" - that's only sold at one place in all of SimCity. Since the cooks 
are busy, it's up to ____ to retrieve it. Should she make the run and give up
her tips at the other tables she's working, or should she secretly substitute
tap water for Simon's fancy water?

"Play Fetch" 85% Chance
____'s a little infatuated with Simon - although she's never admitted it to
anyone - so she's glad to run out into the night for him. There's no line at 
the beverage shop, so she's in and out and is back at the restaurant within 15
minutes. Simon can immediately tell the difference - he winks at ____ through
his long blond (and remarkably effeminate) hair. At the end of the evening, 
Simon stops to chat with ____ a bit, and when he discovers that she's trying
to break into cooking, he generously offers to set her up at one of his new
restaurants in the city. ____ is promoted to Prep Cook!

"Play Fetch" 15% Chance
Hoping to score a monster tip, ____ hands off her other tables to a fellow
waitress and runs out into the night. The beverage shop is extremely busy,
and she has to wait longer than she'd like for her purchase. As soon as she
has the bags-in-hand, she speeds off without double-checking the order - 
not realising that she inadvertently asked for the wrong brand! Once at the
restaurant, ____ decides to try and serve the wrong water rather than 
admit the error. Simon, however, can detect the difference easily, and is
furious that ____ tried a bait-and-switch. He refuses to pay for the water
or leave a tip, and ____ finds herself out of 300 Simoleons.

"Try Tap" 15% Chance
____'s coworker offers her a bit of free advice in the kitchen: "Vapour?
I've had that stuff. Tastes like tap water with a little apple juice, if 
you ask me." They look at each other, then run off to the pantry to return
with a bottle of apple juice. ____ pours a few glasses straight from the
tap and tops each off with a bit of juice before bringing it out to Simon.
She takes a breath as Simon tastes a sip - and wonder of wonders, Simon
falls for it! He flashes his trademark grin and thanks ____ for making 
that special trip for him. Once the 30-person entourage leaves, ____
finds that Simon has left her an autographed napkin - and a positively
astronomical tip of 500 Simoleons!

"Try Tap" 85% Chance
____ has too many other things to worry about to pander to Simon's 
unreasonable demands. Once she's dealt with the other tables, she pours
tap water into fancy glasses with a twist of lemon juice, and brings it
out ceremoniously for the VIPs. Simon picks up his glass, takes a sip ...
and does a spit-take, drenching everyone at his table. Turning red, Simon
splutters, "Are there lemons in this water? I'm ALLERGIC to lemons!" As
Simon begins to wheeze, his entourage quickly departs to follow their
leader to the hospital, leaving chaos and an unpaid bill in their wake.
Mortified, ____'s boss fires her on the spot.

A local society dame has contracted with _____'s restaurant to cater her
daughter's wedding to a local wealthy businessman. This overly extravagant
affair promptly causes headaches for the entire staff: the demands range from
the silly (500 miniature swans made entirely of coconut paste) to the
impossible ("Can you get powder blue lettuce greens for the salads?"). The
sous chef is so busy taking care of the demands that he leaves the decision
about the soup ("surprise us!") entirely up to _____. Should she make Italian
wedding soup or the less traditional Louisiana Gumbo?

"Italian Wedding" 85% Chance
Since he's only served his Italian Wedding soup at bar mitzvahs and graduation
parties, ____ decides to correct this ironic state of affairs. When the 
wedding party arrives, ____ notices that the family is Italian, and briefly
fears that his creation wasn't good enough for their tastes. He wrings his
dishtowel as he peeks out from behind a pillar, waiting to see their 
reaction - and it's an absoulte success. "Buonnissima!" bellows the bride's 
father, and he insists upon ____'s services for all of his company's 
gatherings. Overjoyed at the new business, ____'s employers give him a tidy
cut of the profits from the new bookings: he gains §2,000 and 1 Cooking point
for his scrumpious creation. 

"Italian Wedding" 15% Chance
Opting for the safer option, ____ decides she'd rather go with the Italian
Wedding soup. Creative, no, but it's tradition. She prepares the soup
conscientiously, and is so proud of how it turns out that she insists on
bring it out personally to serve the guests. As she's bringing out the
oversized, steaming pot, ____ sees the groom - and realises that it is none
other than her high school sweetheart! Distracted, ____ accidently tips over
the awkward pot - and the almost-boiling soup rushes over the dessert table
next to her, instantly turning all 500 coconut swans into unappetizing
white mush. Mortified and ashamed, ____ runs out of the hall. Her boss 
doesn't fire her, but ____ agrees to pay §1000 in refunds to the clients for
her carelessness.

"Louisiana Gumbo" 15% Chance
Italian Wedding ... is so obvious! ____ would much rather like to surprise
her boss with a little bit of creativity. She manages to procure some choice
seafood and sets out to create a culinary symphony. Before she can begin,
however, she is interrupted by a desperate wedding planner. "Do any of you
know how to make sushi? I totally goofed and my clients are furious!" Now,
____'s been known to roll a mean Godzilla Roll in her day, so with a small
amount of trepidation she agrees to give it a try. She grabs the seafood she
gathered and sets up in the main hall, preparing sushi on request. ____'s
services are a huge hit, and there's such a demand that she makes an 
impression on one of the guests, who also happens to be opening a Japanese
fusion restaurant in the months ahead. The businessman offers ____ a 
promotion to Sous Chef at his new establishment, and she gladly accepts!

"Louisiana Gumbo" 85% Chance
Cajun cooking holds a special place in _____'s heart so she decides to favor
her own taste and whip up a large batch of fresh Louisiana Gumbo. She throws
in everything but the kitchen sink: there's more aquatic life in that soup
than the average aquarium! But _____ is so busy with preparations that she 
doesn't remember the problems that local seafood restaurants in the area are
having with sick patrons. When the gumbo is unveiled to the hungry throngs at
the wedding, they greedily consume it - and it's only a short while before the
groom gets sick on the bride's shoes during their first dance. It's a 
full-blown disaster, and several guests are sent to the hospital. _____ ends 
up taking the fall for her grievous gumbo, losing her job and a cooking point
to boot.

*Sous Chef*

As ____ grows more skilled in his work, he also begins to host dinner parties
that gain him respect among his friends. One such friend, who dabbles in 
publishing, suggest that ____ publish a cookbook to get his name out there, 
going so far to offer a nice contract. Now all that ____ has to decide is 
what type of recipes to feature. He could concentrate on Asian dishes, a 
particular passion of his, or he could try and shoot for the growing low-carb
low-sodium low-substance cookbook market. Which book should he write?

"Eastern Eats" 85% Chance
Refusing to "sell out" to the day's latest dieting crazes, ____ compiles a 
cookbook with some of his favorite Asian-inspired recipes, just hoping to
break even writing about his passion. He pours his heart and soul into that
book, weaving anecdotes and stories he's collected throughout the book to 
give it more character. Serendipitously, just a week before his book's 
release, scientific studies are published that show that Asian cooking can
improve health and help Sims lose weight. The public buys up ____'s 
thoughtfully crafted tome in droves, and the work is a smashing success. 
____ nets a cool 10,000 simoleons from his first royalty check.

"Eastern Eats" 15% Chance
____ refuses to sink to the level of those "diet" cookbooks that make a 
travesty of REAL cooking. She uses her book a a sort of pulpit, where she
preaches taste of calories, quality over quick preparations. And it would
have been widely successful, too - except for the fact that ____
accidently disclosed several of her restaurant's "secret" recipes in the rush
to get her book out. Her employers sue her and win, forcing her publishers to
remove the book from the shelves. Now seen as untrustworthy, ____ will have
to rebuild trust before being placed in a position of power again. ____
loses §5000 in legal fees and is demoted to Prep Cook.

"No-Cal Cooking" 15% Chance
____ is too fond of her personal recipes to give them up, so she instead
tries her hand at the new recipes in the no-fuss no-fat category of cookbooks
that sells so well nowadays. She ends up needing to take some time off to
experiment, and has to dip into her savings to get by for a while. During
her time off, she discovers an inventive side to her cooking that never
existed before. She works from dawn till dusk in her kitchen, and each day
sleeps a satisfied and contented sleep. Excited and inspired, ____ completes
a cookbook that displays a daring variety of tastes and cooking styles. The
book is a modest success, but ____'s creative growth during her brief vacation
has been substantial. ____ gains 3000 Simoleons and 2 Creativity Points.

"No-Cal Cooking" 85% Chance
Perferring an easier road to success - and lacking the time to think of a
creative angle -  ____ opts for the simple choice and begins to work on her
magnum opus, "No-Cal Cooking". Unfortunately, ramen noodles fail to excite
the public no matter how they're portrayed. Meanwhile, a competing cookbook
preaches a return to rich cooking and refined tastes, and it's selling like
hotcakes. Who woudl have thought that Sims wanted things to taste good?
Luckily, ____ breaks even on the endeavour financially. Unfortunately, all
the time she spent working on the book causes her cooking skills to
atrophy, and she loses 1 Cooking point.

*Executive Chef*

____ has become quite the talk of the town lately - his latest menu has been
praised as "a gift from the heavens" and "a miraculous delight." Its not long
before entrepreneurial spirits begin to approach him with seeming lucrative
endorsement deals. Two of them stand out from the rest - one investor offers 
to put his name on a new brand of indestructible sporks, while another 
proposes a branded line of combination food processor/fax machines for the
busy household. Which absurd kitchen implement will ____ endorse?

"Sporks of Steel" 50% Chance
____'s had a soft spot for sporks ever since those cafeteria lunches in
elementary school, so the choice for her is a no-brainer. She begins to
have second thoughts during the taping of the infomercial - "You mean I can
eat soup AND meat with the SAME utensil? That's AMAZING!" - but she crosses
her fingers and hopes for the best. As it turns out, ____'s winning smile
and soothing voice are all the public needs to get hooked on sporks. Sporks
of Steel are replacing spoons and forks at a respectable pace! While the
media may poke fun at her little empire, ____ is very happy to reign as 
Queen of Sporks, and she manages to amass §20,000 for her successful 
endorsement.

"Sporks of Steel" 50% Chance
When ____ read the Sporks of Steel prospectus, one can almost hear the gears
spinning in his head. This product is sure to be a winner! Enthused and
excited, ____ throws himself wholly behind his endorsement, skipping work to
make media appearances and to recuperate from his grueling informerical
shooting schedule. But everything comes crashing down when Sim Comsumer 
magazine runs an expose on the Sporks of Steel, revealing their propensity
for breaking in the dishwasher. ____ is lucky to break even after this
endeavor, but he returns to work only to find that he's been unceremoniously
replaced. ____ is fired!

"Blend n' Send" 50% Chance
During her deliberations, ____ remembers that she once had a traumatic
experience with a spork, and thus decides in favour of the revolutionary
Blend n' Send. At first, sales are lukewarm ... until ____ has a TRULY
inspired idea. "If you act now, we'll throw in a free cheese grater!" This
"amazing stupendous" extra value excite the public, and suddenly the Blend
n' Send is selling out nationwide! The product line soon expands to include
such technological marvels as the "CompuCooker" and the "TeleToaster". The
Blend n' Send product line nets ____ a surprisingly bountiful §50,000
in pure profit.

"Blend n' Send" 50% Chance
____ signs on the dotted line and stamps his name on the "Groundbreaking" 
Blend n' Send. He's so sure of success that he even pledges 20,000 Simoleons
to the cause. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell ____ that fax machines 
and food processors belong in two entirely seperate rooms. The industry is 
baffled at this display of complete marketing ineptitude, and consumers are 
completely indifferent to the product. Dejected and embarrassed, ____ demends 
that the company remove his name from the product. ____ loses his §20,000 
investment and two logic points for his lack of foresight.

***************
*Restauranteur*
***************

____'s line of restaurants is doing fairly well - so well that they've
saturated most of the major metropolitan areas. It's time to branch out in a
creative direction if business is to be kept at a booming pace. After speaking
with her financial advisors, ____ has narrowed her actions down to two 
potential expansions - establishing a partnership with several major theme
park chains, or expanding into airports across the country. Where should she
put the dough?

"Theme Parks" 15% Chance
Observing that families are willing to spare no expense while vacationing
at themed resorts, ____ makes her move and signs a contract to install a 
dozen gourmet food outlet in theme parks and resorts around the country. The
returns are almost astonishing - as it turns out, eggs rolls on a stick
were the next food fad waiting to happen! ____'s visibility skyrockets, and
she's soon a household name. The profits have pleased the park execs so much
that ____ soon receives a call from a company executive offering ____ her
very own television cooking show! ____ is promoted to Celebrity Chef!

"Theme Parks" 85% Chance
Remembering sweeter days of roller coasters and overpriced ice cream, ____
chooses to expand her empire into the theme park industry. To fund the 
venture, she ponies up §30,000 if her own savings. However, it turns out
that most kids are too picky to eat dishes like "Candied Calamari", and most
vacationers would prefer a simple corn dog or ice cream cone to a full-course
meal. ____'s fledging restaurants close swiftly, and she loses her entire
investment in the depressing denouement that follows.

"Airports" 85% Chance
____ decides to capitalise on flight delays and the recent absense of
in-flight meals, and she expands her restaurants to a dozen major airports.
This trendy atmosphere and overpriced appetizers are a hugh hit with the
eternally black-clad road warriors, and ____'s bright idea to provide
wireless internet access to patrons certainly didn't hurt either. Ironically,
the airlines themselves begin paying to serve ____'s food on their flights,
finding that the name recognition helps their sales too. The resourceful
____ nets §55,000 and one Logic skill point from her restaurant investment.

"Airport" 15% Chance
A frequent raveller herself, ____ decides that she wants to see her face in
every city, and she promptly expands her franchise to a number of important
airports. For a few weeks, business is booming - that is, until the largest
airline in the country goes bankrupt, throwing the industry into chaos. 
Airports shut down, flights are cancelled, and the public decides to stay
away from the air until everything has cooled down. The recovery a few 
months later is too late for ____ - her restaurants close after losing enough
money to bankrupt the entire chain. ____ loses her restaurants along with
one Creativity point and she is demoted to Executive Chef.

****************
*Celebrity Chef*
****************

What do wealthy celebrity chefs do to ensure their continued place at the top?
Why, they compete in overly complicated televised battle shows, of course!
____ is honored by an invitation from the #1 reality-cooking-competition show,
"Steel Cuisine." He's been pitted against on of the most renowned chefs in the
industry, Pierre Lefromage. (That name sounds strangly familar ...) The week 
before the historic competition, ____ recieves a mysterious phone call - 
someone well tell him the secret ingredient to be used for the sum of §50,000.
Is ____'s victory worth the shame and risk of cheating?

"Stay Honest" 85% Chance
____ wouldn't be able to live with herself if her victory was tarnished
by the knowledge that she cheated. She hangs up on the mysterious caller and
instead devotes her herself to studying Lefromage's background, strengths, 
and weaknesses. Suddenly, ____ realises that this is the same chef that worked
at the restaurant where she was a dishwasher long ago! Armed with the 
knowledge, and her vivid memories about those congealed leftovers, ____
bravely enters the battle kitchens. The secret ingredient? Eel. As Lefromage
tries desperately to get a hold of the slippery creatures, ____ steps up to
the challenge and puts together a 5-course meal, complete with eel-flavoured
sorbet for dessert. She takes the championship and the lucrative cash prize
of §25,000 - as well as the satification of beating her former boss.

"Stay Honest" 15% Chance
____ takes the high road and politely refuses the extra assistance. Imagine 
what would happen if someone found out! Yet as the competition approaches, 
____ becomes so wrapped in television interviews and other media appearances
that he doesn't find any time to prepare himself for what comes next. He 
arrives in the battle kitchens with a great deal of trepidation, and anxiously
awaits the unveiling of the secret ingredient ...  Red Snapper?!? In all of 
work, in all of his cooking, he's never worked with snapper before! ____ makes
a valient effort, but he is blown away by Lefromage's superior skills and his
remarkable composure. ____ suffers an embarrassing loss at Lefromage's hands,
costing him two Cooking points - and the resulting loss in patronage at his
restaurants cost him §35,000. 

"Pay the man!" 15% Chance
All's fair in food and war - and ____'s not taking any prisoners. Once she
has been assured of the secrecy of the exchange, ____ meets the shadowy
figure in a run-down bar where he imparts to her in hushed tones the secret
ingredient: "Bananas." ____ thanks her informant  and returns home, where
she spends the next 72 hours devising the perfect banana-inspired menu.
She appears on the show calm and collected, but all changes when the 
ingredient is revealed: "Almonds?!?!" Indignant and anxious, ____ must
rethink her strategy. Remarkedly, her anger and her embarrassment at her
predicament causes her to work more effciently - she WILL win with a trio
of exquisite almond-themed dishes. ____ wins an honest victory [by a narrow
margin] and takes home the §150,000 prize - although she only nets §60,000
due to her clandestine payout.

"Pay the man!" 85% Chance
In a moment of weakness and fear, ____ accepts the stranger's proposition,
and trades §50,000 for the information she needs. The information her 
informant provided allows ____ to prepare a dazzling menu in advance, and
when the competition draws to a close ____ emerges as the clear victor.
But after a night of celebration and kudos, ____ reads the paper only to
discover that she is front-page news! The informant has gone public, and
____ is exposed as a fraud. She is forced to return her winnings, and the
public's interest in her drops off completely, despite her many contrite
public apologies. ____'s culinary empire crumbles around her as she loses
the §25,000 she paid to her turncoat informant - and her job as a Celebrity
Chef.

*Test Subject*
**************

Having grown nearly immune to the electroshock stimulus, the ESP research team
is finally convinced that ____ has absolutely no psychic powers whatsoever.
So she's been moved on to the Theoretical Color Research division, where her
first test involves nothing more than sitting in a sterile test room, selecting
one of two colored lengths of licorice and ingesting it. Should ____ eat the
red licorice or the blue licorice?

"Red" 50% Chance
____ looks over the stark and sterile testing room, the single cold steel 
table, and the two stems of malleable licorice each in their own little paper
cups. She takes the Red licorice, chews it up, and shows her empty mouth to
the observation mirror. A solemn voice comes on over the buzzing loud-speaker
informing ____ that she has made the correct choice. Not really understanding
why, ____ is thanked for her time and sent on her way with a §500 Simoleon
bonus.

"Red" 50% Chance
____ surveys the brightly lit testing room, noting the oddly shaped glass 
table strangely reminiscent of dental equipment. Lost in thought, a soft voice
comes on over the crackling loud speaker reminding ____ that the choice is 
simple: the red licorice or the blue licorice.  ____ turns a blank start to
the one-way mirror, picks up the red licorice and tosses it into her mouth. A
few seconds pass and there's still no answer from the scientists behind the
mirror. ____ gets up to leave, but the wall speaker hums to life and informs
her that she's made the wrong decision and will no longer be needed in the
experiment. ____'s lost her job.

"Blue" 50% Chance
____ stares blankly into the one-way mirror, listening to the instructions
coming over the monaural wall speaker hung next to the digital clock
eternally blinking 12:00am. Not really understanding the test, ____'s 
trust in the scientific method, picks up the length of blue licorice and
chomps it down. The wall speaker hums back to life, and a low voice thanks
her for her time, adding that she's done very well. ____ takes this as her
cue to go, and head out to the lounge for a cup of coffee. As she's walking
her head begins to tingle, and though she doesn't know it, ____'s earned
1 Logic skill point!

"Blue" 50% Chance
____ takes a lap around the strangely bifurcated glass display table and
surveys the two paper cups each containing her choice of seemingly tasty
licorice. Beside the table, the room is almost empty except for a one-way
mirror and a small monaural wall speaker. ____ doesn't see much choice,
or any reason why she should even worry about making a choice, so she picks
up the blue licorice, chews it and swallows without any trouble. She waits
for word from the wall speaker, and when she doesn't hear any, walks out and
down the corridor to the lounge. As she's pouring herself a cup of coffee she
slips on a banana peel and crashes to the floor taking the coffee machine
with her. ____'s okay, but has to replace the coffee machine she's broken,
forking over 127 Simoleons.

*Lab Assistant*
***************

____'s been given a large amount of test suites to run. Normally she's used
to having a bit of free rein in the lab, fixing up some of the machinery,
playing with the mice and with Wiki the signing chimpanzee, but now all of a
sudden the lead researcher has ____ running these simple and formulaic tests
that even Wiki could do, and ____'s not so happy about it. Then it occurs to
her that Wiki the signing chimpanzee COULD run the test suites! After all, all
they are is a bunch of checkboxes, one after the other. ____ never pays much
attention to them anyways. Should ____ let Wiki do the test suites, or take a
stand for herself and tell her boss what she thinks?

"Let Wiki" 85% Chance
____ sets Wiki up with a ball point pen, taking extra care to explain the
inherant dangers of pens with regards to visual impairment and to being 
"mightier than the sword in the hands of chimpanzees entirely great." She
lets Wiki out of his cage, hands him a stack of test suites, explains how
to fill the in and promises him some extra bananas later. Tasks in hand, ____
takes the afternoon off to catch up on some of the latest scientific
journals, earning herself 1 Logic skill point.

"Let Wiki" 15% Chance
____ sets Wiki up with a ball point pen, taking extra care to explain the
inherant dangers of pens with regards to visual impairment, and puts
Wiki at her desk with the stack of test suites. ____ makes herself a cup
of coffee and snuggles up in the lounge area with a throw blanket and
the lastest scientific journals, but just as she's flipping to an article
outlining the ever shrinking distinction between objective and subjective
observation, Wiki comes storming down the hallway in a flurry of broken
pens and test suites. ____ gives chase, but the chimpanzee makes it out
the front doors and into the surrounding forest before ____ even has the
time to sound the alarm. It looks as though the repetitive nature of
the simple tests was too much even for Wiki, and ____ is forced to pay
for a replacement chimpanzee, costing her §867.

"Speak Mind" 15% Chance
_____ marches down the long hallway of test subjects, past the cubicles of lab
assistants, all crammed together, sometimes 2 or 3 Sims per cube, and right 
into her boss's office.  Without even waiting for him to look up from his 
latte, _____ launches into her tirade, explaining that she is a valuable 
research asset, and that she considers it waste of her time, as well as an 
insult, that she has to spend five minutes of her day, every day, verifying
that gravity does in fact still function in SimCity and then checking off the
appropriate check box on her long list of test suites.  The Lead Researcher
looks over the list and tosses it into his circular filing drawer, informing
_____ that the whole process was just a test to measure her capacity for 
independent thinking.  _____'s passed and is promoted to Field Researcher.

"Speak Mind" 85% Chance
____ grabs up the test suites and marches down the corridor to the Lead 
Researcher's office. She goes to open the door, but stop short and pauses
in thought. She tears the pages to shreds, dumps them unceremoniously on the
floor, produces a book of matches, and lights them ablaze. Content that she's
made her point, ____ returns to the laboratory and goes about fixing the focal
lens on a malfunctioning microscope. It isn't long before the Lead Researcher 
appears, still coughing, and asks if ____ had anything to do with the small
bonfire recently constructed outside of his office door. ____ stands her
ground, explains her issues with the test suites, and is immediately demoted
to Test Subject.

*Field Researcher*
******************

In a remote section of the SimCity outback ____ has come upon a previously
undiscovered entranceway to an outcropping of ruins built into the base of a
mountain and covered by dense jungle foliage. This is a major discovery, but
____ isn't sure how to proceed. Should he enter the ruins by himself and
attempt to ascertain their nature, or head back to the institute and inform
some of the more distinguished archaeologists of the ruins' existence?

"Go In" 15% Chance
____ hacks back the thick jungle vines with her handy machete and makes her
way to the large stone carved entranceway. ____ calms her nerves and pushes
past the dust and cobwebs into the mouth of the ruins. Flashlight in hand,
she wanders through the newwork of twists and turns, always with the sense
that she's heading deeper and deeper into the mountainside. She finally
arrives in a large central chamber lit by a single column of daylight 
descending from a small hole in the cone of the mountain a thousand feet
above. On a small pedestal, perfectly illuminated by the column of mid-day
sun, is a gold figurine. ____ recognises it immediately as being priceless,
but retrieves it and sells it later that day for a cool §15,000.

"Go In" 85% Chance
____ pushes her way through the dense vines and heavy underbrush towards the
entrance of the ruins, but finds herself unprepared for the perils that
lie in wait. As she enters the carved arches, the ground beneath her feet
gives way, and she finds herself sliding down a network of slippery stone
tunnels. Suddenly the ceiling begins to collapse, and ____ is now racing 
just barely in front of an avalanche of tumbling rock and stone. Just as 
____ begins to debate taking some sort of action that might pervent her 
being crushed by the quickly moving wall of rock, she shoots out a small
opening and out into the daylight of the opposite side of the mountain.
Apparently unhurt by the fall, ____ makes her way to the entrance only to
find that any sign of the ruins has since been hidden in a shower of fallen
earth. Disappointed, ____ heads back to the institute and loses 1 Logic skill
point.

"Get Help" 85% Chance
____ takes one last and closer look at the giant stone archway, and even with
his limited knowledge of ancient glyphic languages, is able to ascertain 
immediately that the highly complex writings are of no language ever seen
before. ____ hurries back to civilization and informs the institute's
archaeologists that he has found the remains of what appears to be an "Alien"
civilization. He takes the pack of scientists, each one giddier than the next,
to the site, and it is immediately clear to them that ____'s discovery may be
one of the most important findings in the modern era. The Archaeologists
confer and ask him to supervise further investigations into the Alien ruins,
promoting ____ to Project Leader.

"Get Help" 15% Chance
____ quickly transcribes a few of the unrecognisable glyphs from the oversized
stone archway, and hurries back to the institute. She finds a contingent of
archeologists in the lounge. Nearly out of breath with excitement, ____ tells
the archeologists of her discovery and shows them the transcribed glyphs, 
explaining that she believes them to be of extraterrestrial origins. They
all agree that the language has never seen before by the scientific community
but all break into laughter as one of the younger scientists tosses a 
newspaper to ____. The front page of which has a cover story about a Studio
Town production house that has recently spent millions to turn a huge section
of SimCity jungle into a set for an upcoming film. Humiliated, ____ leaves the
lounge losing 1 Logic skill point.

*Science Teacher*
*****************

Lately, ____'s students have been getting restless, but being relatively new
to the field of teaching, ____ has been trying to stick to the textbook. 
Unfortunately, if there's one known constant in the universe, it's that high
school science texts are incapable of portraying the wonders of science in any
way other than the most boring, convoluted, and drab. ____ decides that enough
is enough, and that his job as a teacher is not to make sure his students have
memorized the periodic table, but to get them interested in science and in 
learning. It's time for a field trip! All ____ has to do is decide whether the
class should visit the mall or local video arcade, in the name of science, of
course.

"The Mall" 50% Chance
____ packs her class into a dingy yellow school bus and trundles on down to
the Mall. The class is ecstatic. With the ridiculous amounts of homework
fostered off on kids these days, most of ____'s students don't even have time
on the weekends anymore to hang out at the mall. They visit the Gadget Shop
where ____ explains the inner-workings of some of the neatest gizmos. Then
they hit the hotdog stands where ____ briefly explains specific heat as it
pertains to the steaming of a delicious "SimCity Dog". The entire trip is
a success and puts ____'s class back on track, earning ____ 2 Logic skill
points.

"The Mall" 50% Chance
____ packs her class into a dingy yellow school bus and trundles on down to
the Mall. The class is ecstatic. With the ridiculous amounts of homework
fostered off on kids these days, most of ____'s students don't even have time
on the weekends anymore to hang out at the mall. ____ figures she's found
the perfect teaching environment, where she can combine the real life
interests of her students with some practical applications of science and
technology. However, as soon as the students cross beneath the Mall's giant
front archway they scatter like dust in the wind, and ____ is unable to
find a single one of them again for the rest of the day. The whole trip is
a huge failure, and ____ loses 1 Logic skill point.

"Video Arcade" 50% Chance
____ puts in a request for petty cash and, sack of coins in hand, he and his
students pile into a beat up school bus, destination: Video Games! The arcade
is huge, and there's a type of game for every type of kid. ____ hands out the
coins and lets the class run wild. He makes the rounds and takes the time to 
explain the technology behind the games to the kids, as well as stirring up
discussions about electricity and reflexes. Finally, the class in enthralled
when he reveals that studies have shown that adolescents who partake in a 
"healthy" amount of video gaming possess higher IQs and better Hand/Eye
coordination. At the end of the day, it's clear that the field trip has been
a success, and ____ earns 1 Logic and 1 Charisma Skil Point. 

"Video Arcade" 50% Chance
____ puts in a request for petty cash and, sack of coins in hand, she and her
students pile into a beat up school bus, destination: Video Games! The arcade
is huge, and there's a type of game for every type of kid. ____ hands out the
coins and lets the class run wild. She formulates a few intricate lectures
involving reflection and refraction, as well as the basic principles of
electricity, but before she's able to impart them to the nearly hypnotised
pupils, ____ runs into the SCHOOL'S principal, who is apparently making
the rounds looking for truant students. Needless to say, he is not pleased
with ____, believing that her choice of "field trip" will only justify the
behaviour of students who routinely play hooky at the video arcade. Nothing
____ can say will change his mind, and she's demoted back to Field Researcher.

****************
*Project Leader*
****************

While reading through some of his team's reports, ____ realizes that one of
his researchers has inadvertently stumbled upon a new lithium isotope. Not
only is the discovery of a major find in and of itself, but the practical
applications of the isotope in devices such as atomic linear accelerators and
staplers will be worth a fortune. So it is that ____ finds himself with a bit
of a conundrum. Ethics would obviously say that he should inform the
researcher of her own discovery and advise her how to proceed, but practicality
says that no one ever got ahead in the world of science by sticking to the
rules, and ____ could easily claim the discovery himself without anyone being
the wiser.

"Inform" 85% Chance
____ calls the young researcher into his office and presents her the report
he's been reading. The researcher isn't sure what todo, but ____ directs her
to a few of the bits he's highlighted and then to a section of the periodic
table, then back to the report, and the fledgling researcher's eyes light up,
"I've, I've discovered a new isotope! And it's a good one!"  ____ smiles, and
the researcher thanks him profusely, saying she could have never done it 
without him. She further promises to give him a percentage from the proceeds
of the first technical patent, and by the end of the day ____ has a check in
his hands for §7,500.

"Inform" 15% Chance
____ writes up a discovery report, a document by which her team is supposed
to review each other's findings, and calls the young research into her office.
She explains the findings to him, specifying how importany of a discovery
this is. The young scientist looks confused, but thanks ____ for taking the
time to bring it to his attention. He then publishes the discovery report to
____'s superiors as though it were his own, and then uses it as an argument
for why HE should be project supervisor instead of ____. The institute's
board members agree with him, and in one of the more telling lessons about
the scientific community at large, ____ is demoted to Field Researcher.

"Steal" 15% Chance
____ figures what the young blundering research doesn't know, certainly isn't
going to hurt him, but just to make sure he doesn't know, ____ goes through
the archives and the database, and then removes any records of the isotope
ever being found. She then forges some back history, fills out some old
notebooks to make it look as though she'd been working on the discovery for
months, and starts work on a formal paper with which she will announce "her"
findings to the world. If there were such things as Conniving skill points
or Cheating skill points, no doubt ____ would have earned some, but luckily
that's not how the scientific community works, so ____ earns 2 Logic skill
points for her decisive theivery.

"Steal" 85% Chance
____ takes the young researcher's findings and publishes them in her 
institute's electronic science journal as her own. She then sets about filling
out the paperwork for what is sure to be a lucrative patent within the office
supply industry, but as soon as the electronic journal hits the wires, her 
entire research team is virtually pounding down her office door. With a senior
member of the board in tow, the young researcher responsible for the discovery
presents all of his findings which documents the steps he had been taking to
formalise the discovery of the isotope. On the basis of his presentation
and on the word of his collegues, it becomes overwhelming clear to the board
member that ____ has stolen all of the work she published only hours earlier,
and without any documentation with which to plead her case, ____ has no 
choice other than to resign her position. ____ has lost her job.

**********
*Inventor*
**********

Locked in the basement of the institute's advanced technologies wing, ____ is
hard at work and convinced that at any moment she'll make the breakthrough that
will allow her to build the better mouse-trap. But amidst the confusion of her
piles of parts and stacks of design specs, she's forgotten whether to connect
the Dervosian wicket receptacle to the coupled power inverter or to the focal
spline reticulation intake valve. Which one should see connect it to?

"Power Inverter" 50% Chance
____ ratchets down the surrounding support plates and screws the Dervosian
wicket receptable into the base of the coupled power inverter, remembering,
of course, to leave a little room for play in order to account for any power
flux that could possibly result from a misdirected uranium overflow. She steps
back behind the blast shield, secures her shatter-proof goggles and lead lined
vest, (remember kids, safety first!) and throws the toggle switch from REDUX
to ACTIVE. The envelope particulator whirrs to life, reticulating the
graphic rhythm of the pyrrhic emulator, which in return begins to rotation of
the seismic induction funnel, as the rest as they say, is history. Having 
finished the detection system for her mouse trap, ____ sells the patent for
§10,000 and sets to building the part of the device that will actually trap 
the mouse.

"Power Inverter" 50% Chance
____ ratchets down the surrounding support plates and screws the Dervosian
wicket receptable into the base of the coupled power inverter, remembering,
of course, to leave a little room for play in order to account for any power
flux that could possibly result from a misdirected uranium overflow. She steps
back behind the blast shield, secures her shatter-proof goggles and lead lined
vest, (remember kids, safety first!) and throws the toggle switch from REDUX
to ACTIVE. The apparatus momentarily hums to life before exploding in a blaze
of glory and elaborately named parts. None of it is salvageable, and ____ must
fork out 7,000 Simoleons to continue her quest for the perfect mouse trap.

"Intake Valve" 50% Chance
____ reaches back behind the ordovicater, remembering to avoid making contact
with either the depth defier or the multi-valved node indicator, and grabs
hold of the focal spline reticulation valve's negative terminal. She carefully
grounds the Dervosian wicket receptacle to a lug nut on the engine block and
slides it into place, taking extra caution to bend the wicket so that it fits
snugly within the hub of the intake valve's terminal. ____ moves behind the
blast shield and throws the switch. The apparatus beings to hum and begins
to glow an iridescent green, but none of the integrated particulators even
come close to inducing a vortex, derivative or otherwise. ____ has failed to
build the better mousetrap, but upon reflection, she tries adding a cup of
water and some coffee beans to the induction funnel and discovers that what
she has created is a microcosmic "no-mess" coffee machine, earning herself
2 Cooking skill points.

"Intake Valve" 50% Chance
____ reaches back behind the ordovicater, remembering to avoid making contact
with either the depth defier or the multi-valved node indicator, and grabs
hold of the focal spline reticulation valve's negative terminal. She carefully
grounds the Dervosian wicket receptacle to a lug nut on the engine block and
slides it into place, taking extra caution to bend the wicket so that it fits
snugly within the hub of the intake valve's terminal. ____ moves behind the
blast shield and throws the switch. The apparatus beings to hum, then it 
begins to glow, then rumble, then really glow. Soon the sound is deafening 
and the glow blinding. ____ gropes for the power coupling, but can't grope
too far, for fear of possibly wandering out from behind the blast shield. Just
when she doesn't think it can get any louder or brighter, the machine goes
silent and explodes in a rippling shock wave that turns her workshop almost
completely upside down. Everything is in shambles. The machine is ruined, 
and ____ loses 3 Cleaning skill points.

*********
*Scholar*
*********

Lately ____'s grown weary of her scholarly life, and weary of the charade that
so many university academics must be part of in order to weather the "publish 
or perish" phenomenon so common in today's collegiate environs. She misses the
hands-on aspects of being a scientist and is tired of having to spend such a 
large part of her career lecturing and writing, when what she should be doing
is discovering. It's high time that she did something about it. The only tough
part is figuring out what to do without risking her cushy position as an
"Academic." ____ mulls it over for a bit and decides that she should either 
spend the day working on her old theory of extra special relativity or look 
into finishing her field work in the ancestral structures of the Llama famliy.

"Theory" 85% Chance
____ cancels her lectures for the day and sets herself up in her good old 
office. The place is a mess, filled with stacks of dusty tomes and yellowing
paper, but within a warped and creaky dray, ____ finds the one time bulk of
her theoretical work. The heavy bolt of coffee stained pages contain theorem
upon theorem, and hypothesis after hypothesis, all attempting to prove ____'s
theory of extra special relativity. She flops down into her high backed chair
and attempts to refamiliarise herself with the work she'd long since forgotten
about, but the further she reads, the less she seems to remember, and the more
surprised she becomes at how staggering accurate and innovative the content of
the pages are. ____ finishes reading the paper and is shocked to discover
that the paper itself is finished, its argument whole and complete! ____
apparently completed it years ago, but had long since forgotten. She 
immediately publishes it in a national theoretical journal and receives 2 
Logic skill points and §5,000 grant.

"Theory" 15% Chance
____ cancels her lectures for the day and goes about cleaning up her office
in the hopes of eventually locating the huge amount of theoretical 
exposition she had done during her work on extra special relativity earlier.
However, her office is a disaster zone. The books and manuals and paperwork
are piled to the ceiling in some places, and are teetering dangerously
close to the brink in others. ____ decides to take a break and collapses
into her comfy high-back leather chair, but the fall into the chair jostles
a nearby stack of books, which begin to topple, sending a neaby crate of
fossilised bat skeletons crashing into a pile of what can only be described
as petrified Llama scat. ____ dives for her office door and makes it out
just as her entire office essentially collapses upon itself. Her research
hopelessly lost, ____ loses 2 Cleaning skill points, as well as the will to
buck the academic system any further.

"Field Work" 15% Chance
____ packs up her backpack, throws on her dusty hiking gear, grabs her trusty
walking stick, and is off to the SimCity foothills for a little run in the 
Alpaca sun. She's brought with her some of her old notes and field guides, and
as she's reading them on the train out of down, decides that she'd like to get
out of this new found pastime is merely to contribute one piece of 
information, or discovery which she can call her own. Just one addendum or
amendment, just a single entry or paragraph in the "Encylopedia de Llama" that
would allow her name to live on long after she's gone. As she is thumbing her
old notebook, she comes across an entry outlineing a theory that Alpacas and 
Llamas shared a common ancestor, as well as a genetic link to the camel:
what the ancestor crossed through SimCity it left behind two decendants, the
Guanaco and the Vicuna. ____'s theory was that the Llama had been domesticated
by the nomads of the SimCity foothills from the Vicuna, and that the Alpaca 
had been domesticated by the cave dwellers from the Guanaco. This theory has
since been canon in the archeological world, but no one had ever been 
credited with the discovery. ____ publishes her notes and field research,
claims the discovery as her own, and earns 2 Logic and 2 Charisma skill 
points.

"Field Work" 85% Chance
____ is off to the SimCity foothills for a little run in the Alpaca sun. She's
brought with her some of her old notes and field guides, and as she's thumbing
though them, she finds an entry outlining an old theory that Alpacas and 
Llamas shared a common ancestor, as well as a genetic link to the camel: when 
that ancestor crossed through SimCity it left behind two decendants, the 
Guanaco and the Vicuna. ____'s theory was that the Llama had been domesticated
by the nomads of the SimCity foothills from the Vicuna, and that the Alpaca 
had been domesticated by the cave dwellers from the Guanaco. This theory has
since been canon in the archeological world, but no one had ever been 
credited with the discovery. ____ hurriedly publishes her notes and field 
research, hoping to be given retroactive credit for the discovery. However, in
her haste ____ fails to realize that current archeological evidence has the 
Llama descending from the Guanaco and the Alpaca descending from the Vicuna!
____ quickly becomes the laughing stock in the scientific community, and to a
scientist losing all credibility means losing her job. 

***********************
*Top Secret Researcher*
***********************

Military Intelligence, otherwise known as AWXYMRAWN, has unearthed something
very important in the SimCity Desert. ____ has received a telegram that reads:
"____ stop top secret stop your eyes only stop have found an a stop l stop i
stop e stop n stop stop s stop p stop a stop c stop e stop s stop h stop i
stop p stop stop come to you know where at you know when stop this message
will self destruct stop. Fascinated by the thought of a small piece of paper
self destructing, ____ places the telegram on the table, but it just sits 
there, benign as ever. Well, ____ does manage to decipher the military's 
"intricate" code, but unfortunately has absolutely no clue about the time or
place where he's supposed to meet them and discuss the "you know what." So he
surmises they must be either be talking about the evcavation area, somewhere
out in the middle of the desert, or the secret underground military 
installation he's heard talk of, somewhere off Interstate 51. Which one should
he try?

"Desert Site" 85% Chance
The desert site is bound to be visible from one of the highways as the SimCity
desert isn't very large, so ____ requistions a "company" car and drives off
towards the desert's yellow horizon. She circles around for an hour or so
but eventually spots a military truck and follows it off-road for a few miles
until they reach an outpost. ____ flashes her credentials and is escorted to
a tent beside the evacuation site. Once she is introduced to a few officers
and scientists before being shown to a back room containing the "artefact". 
The automobile-sized device is contructed of a metal ____ has never seen
before, and it appears to pulse, expanding and contracting as though its
surface was malleable instead of rigid. The scientists explain that no 
headway has been made, and that no tests or observations have shed any light
on the makeup or purpose of the Alien technology. ____ places her hands on
the object, and to the shock and awe of everyone in the room, within minutes
has opened the device and has begun to theorise as to its construction and
function. The onlookers are impresed, and ____ is promoted to Theorist.

"Desert Site" 15% Chance
The desert site is bound to be visible from one of the highways as the SimCity
desert isn't very large, so ____ requistions a "company" car and drives off
towards the desert's yellow horizon. She circles around for an hour or so
but eventually spots a military truck and follows it off-road into the 
desert. The dirt road is badly worn, and the SUV is taking a beating - 
after all it isn't acutally designed to go off-road, it's designed to look
just like it does while being an impractical alternative to station wagons.
The road only gets worse, and ____ is finally forced to turn back. ____
loses 2 Logic skill points for trying to take a Sports Utility vehicle off-
roading, and though she's pretty sure the military's archeologists didn't
actually dig up any alien technology, she still would have liked to check
it out, just to be sure.

"Installation" 15% Chance
____ requistions a vehicle, packs some essential equipment, and checks her
road map for the quickest route for Interstate 51. Once on the highway
she passes through the outlying rural area and winds her way through the
protected marsh lands. After an hour of driving with no sign of the secret
military installation, ____ begins to lose hope of ever finding it, until
she comes to an odd fork in the road. The sign for the left fork reads "
S-E-C-R-E-T Y-O-U K-N-O-W W-H-A-T" and ____ is confident that she has 
found the place. She follows the advice of a cactus with a speaker in it
to proceed to the research facility. Once inside ____ is shown immediately
to the "A-L-I-E-N" technology, but she has a laugh to herself. because 
what the core of scientists, archeologists, and theorists have unearthed
is no more than an experimental jet-propelled toaster oven, just one of the
many failed inventions to come out of the Military's invention pool in the
past decades. Needless to say, the power-that-be are not impressed with the
waste of time and resources the whole fiasco has been. They fire almost
everyone involved and promote ____ to Theorist.

"Installation" 85% Chance
____ figures anything as big as a secret Military Installation can't be too 
hard to find. So he checks his road map for the quickest route for Interstate
51, but is unable to find the highway listed anywhere. Undeterred, ____
requisitions a military grade Sports Utility Vehicle and drives out to where
he thinks the highway probably is. After an hour of driving ____ finally 
decides that he doesn't even care about the top secret discovery, as the
military archaeologists most likely only unearthed some old defunct 
refrigerator again. He turns the car around to head back to his office, but 
the utility vehicle sputters to a near stand-still and the engine shuts off. 
____ looks down at the dash only to discover that he's out of gas. He thumps
himself squarely on the forehead for having tried to take a vehicle rated less

*Theorist*
**********

With the recent complications arising from such concepts as dark matter, 
wormhole theory, red vs. blue shift, superstring theory, ____'s own extra-
special relativity, not the mention the meta-spline reticulation debate, ____
has decided to take on a more rational approach to his theorizing. After all,
there are so many inconsistences and unknowns still lurking in the day to day
activities of Sims across the world. For instance, what happened to all the
pets in SimCity? One day they were there and the next day they were gone, 
vanished without a trace. Or how is it that Sims are all able to carpool, but 
yet not one Sim seems to own a car? Better yet, what's the deal with 
"inventory"? How is it that no one seems to have a problem with the seemingly
infinite universe that exists within each and every Sim's pockets? But ____
needs to focus, and he needs a starting point. Should he start with the 
tangible or the intangible.

"Tangible" 85% Chance
____ turns around in her swiveling office chair and writes the word "Tangible"
on her dusty blackboard in thick heavy chalk strokes. She stares at the word
trying to conjure all of its possible implications, but only definitions
and synonyms come to mind. She she erases the word and rewrites it in as many
languages as she can think of, but that doesn't seem to spark a theoretical
line of attack. Just as ____ begins to wonder if every theory has been
theorised, she is struck by inspiration ... the theory behind the process of
theorisation! What could be simpler, yet more complex?! It's the very essense
of SIMulated life! ____ sets to work immediately on what will no doubt be an
undertaking of such proportions that she may not even be able to finish 
within her lifetime, but on the basis of her proposal alone, ____ earns a 
research grant worth 50,000 Simoleons.

"Tangible" 15% Chance
____ turns around in her swiveling office chair and writes the word "Tangible"
on her dusty blackboard in thick heavy chalk strokes. She stares at the word
trying to conjure all of its possible implications, but only definitions
and synonyms come to mind. She she erases the word and rewrites it in as many
languages as she can think of, but that doesn't seem to spark a theoretical
line of attack. Just as ____ begins to wonder if every theory has been
theorised, she is struck by inspiration ... the theory behind the process of
theorisation! What could be simpler, yet more complex?! It's the very essense
of SIMulated life! ____ publishes a short piece in the Institution's
science and philosophy journal, but the members of the Institute's board
are not exactly pleased with ____'s seemingly lack of "tangible" output,
as they are in the process of paying for theories which make them money, not
overly simplified philosophical theories. They inform ____ that her type
of theories are best left in the classroom: ____ is demoted to Scholar.

"Intangible" 15% Chance
____ writes the word "Intangible" on a sticky note and posts it to her
computer monitor. She then scribbles the word across her hand with a felt tip
pen. Still not satisfied she fills her ancient blackboard with the word,
but yet the word remains as indecipherable as ever to her mind. The room
begins to spin, but still ____ presses on, scraping the edge of her pen
audibly over any surface she can find yet untouched by "the word", "the
thing", "the theory" ... everything goes black. ____ awakens to the sound
of hushed voices and the snap of camera shutters. ____'s office has become
a living shrine to the dichotomy of language and science, and on the basis
of this "experimental piece" ____ is awarded a §20,000 "Save the Artists"
grant.

"Intangible" 85% Chance
The "SIMulated Guide to Discovering What Words Mean" describes the word 
"Intangible" as being "the opposite of tangible," so ____ flips through a few
more pages to "Tangible", only to discover that its defination is "the 
opposite of intangible"! Utterly frustrated ____ tosses the unhelpful 
reference manual out of his office window and settles back to the task at 
hand, discovering a theory pertaining to the intangible world. ____ stares 
blankly out his window, then at his desk, then at his hands, then eventually
back out the window. Hours go by, and ____ is left wondering if there's really
anything left worth theorizing about. He decides that he's not yet ready for 
the world of the theoretical and demotes himself back to Inventor for a bit 
more hands on experience.

***************
*Mad Scientist*
***************

The air is heavy with scientific anticipation, but more importantly, is
charged with pure unbridled electricity. Somewhere in the distance a
wolf howls. Even further off a bell tolls, and a baby cries. Tonight, ____
plans to go against the very laws of nature. Tonight ____ will attempt to
reanimate the dead. Mwahahahahaha! Her life's work in the sciences has
culminated in a combination of biological and chemical engineering, and
since taking on the mantle of Mad Scientist her thoughts have turned evermore
towards living up to the title. Everything is in place, but in his haste
____'s assistant has misplaced the electrical schematics, so ____ is going to
have to rely on her instincts and decide whether to connect the green wires
or the orange wires to the enrgy source. The correct set will route the
reanimating powers of the skies directly to the machinery, while the other 
could set off a chain reaction which might very well lead to the end of the
world ...

"Green" 85% Chance
Grivello, ____'s assistant, limps across the cold stone floor of ____'s 
laboratory, dragging the heavy green cables behind him. ____ surveys the
complex system of bio-mechanical engineering, still in awe of the sheer
brillance of her work. She double checks a few connections, but the sheer
amount of preparation work she's put in, there's simply nothing that could
go wrong. ____ gives Grivello the signal, and he attachs the thick wiring
to the protruding terminals at the base of the nearest Tesla Coil. The
air above the laboratory begins to swell and swirl. The room fills with a 
pale blue light. There is an explosion of colour and heat, and then darkness.
____ scrambles for emergency power then turns her gaze to the test subject.
It's alive. Her beloved potted Geraniums, once brown and twisted, now stands
tall and green, nearly pulsating with life! ____'s achievement represents
a major step forward for the horticultural world, as well as a §55,000 patent
for ____. Mwahahahahaha!

"Green" 15% Chance
Almost immediately, ____ feels as though she's being watched, and though 
forces are at work removing the very air from her lungs and stone from 
beneath her feet. But in the name of science, ____ knows she must go on. She
instructs her assistant, Grivello, to limp over to the nearest Tesla Coil and
connect the set of heavy green cables to the protruding power couplings in
the "Reanimatron's" central control panel. Grivello shrugs his one good
shoulder and does as he's told. The panel sparks, and the air around the 
machine ignites. It appears to ____ as though the very molecules of the night
have caught fire and are now burning an intense blue. Something isn't right.
In fact, something has gone horribly wrong. As soon as ____ goes to cut the
power, a fissure opens rendering the sky asunder and sucking in all sites 
and sounds. ____ has no choice but to run, and so she does, down flight after
flight of spiraling stone stairs, onto the muddy garden path, and down away
from the ancient castle. When she finally looks back, the castle, as well as
the surrounding city is gone, wiped clean by whatever forces had so adamantly
opposed ____'s meddling. The damage is staggering, and when the city officals
are through with ____, she is forced to pay §10,000 in damages.

"Orange" 15% Chance
Grivello, ____'s assistant, limps across the cold stone floor of ____'s
laboratory, dragging the heavy orange cables to the mass of diodes and vaccum
tubes that is the "Reanimatron 2000", or as ____ calls it, Ronnie. ____ gives
Grivello the signal, and he attachs the thick wiring to the protruding 
terminals at the base of the nearest Tesla Coil. Change is in the wind. 
Electricity is in the air. The hair on ____'s neck begins to stand on end,
and the air above the laboratory swells and swirls. The room fills with the
thick cloak of night, a tangible force. The very essense of the laws of
nature begin to crumble right before her eyes. There is an explosion of 
colours and heat, and then darkness. ____ scrambles for emergency power then
turns to gaze to the test subject. It's alive. Her beloved patch of
chrysanthemums, once brown and twisted, now stands tall and lush, nearly
pulsating with life! ____'s achievement represents a major step forward for
the horticultural world, as well as a §55,000 patent for ____. Mwahahahahaha!

"Orange" 85% Chance
____ instructs her assistant, Grivello, to limp over to the nearest Tesla Coil
and connect the set of heavy green cables to the protruding power couplings in
the "Reanimatron's" central control panel. Grivello shrugs his one good
shoulder and does as he's told. The panel sparks, and the night goes silent.
The world to ____ appears as though it were in slow motion, seen through the
eyes of a young child forced to perpetually blink while staring into the
sun. Something isn't right. In fact, something has gone horribly wrong.
A veritable tornado of tangible darkness forms at the centre of the 
laboratory, threatening to envelope ____ and all of her unnatural ideas. ____
is unable to think, unable to move, but somewhere in the back of her mind
she questions what powers these are that are so hard at work against her!
Then it hits her, "power!" She needs to shut off the power! ____ yells to
Grivello, but he is nowhere to be found, so she struggles around the edge of
the laboratory and throws the comically oversized lever from ON to OFF. 
There's a flash, then only darkness. ____ finds a candle and wanders out to
the street below where she's met by the authorities. It seems as though
____'s "little" experiment has sent a power spike through much of SimCity's
electrical grid, damaging §20,000 worth of machinery, to be exact. All on
____'s tab.

*********************
*Door to Door Poller*
*********************

As a door-to-door poller, ____ leaves his ego at the "door" - modern families
aren't very welcoming to strangers bearing clipboards, regardless of their 
occupation. ____ needs to come up with a new tactic for getting information
from the neighbourhood. Should he conduct informal phone calls, or should
he perform a small song and dance at people's doorstep to get their
attention?

"Phone Polls" 50% Chance
____ is determined to make a good impression and get the bottom of the public
opinion. He grabs a phone book and begins to call families, one by one. ____
makes sure to avoid those early morning and dinner time hours that upset
people so much, and miraculously he manages to get pretty good poll numbers!
Thanks to his ingenuity, ____ earns a §75 performance bonus.

"Phone Polls" 50% Chance
Not fond of having doors slammed in his face, ____ decides to try the phone-
polling route. He grabs a local phone directory and begins randomly selecting
names from it. After a few calls, ____ is shocked at the anger Sims harbour
towards telemarketers. They're even more rude to him than they were to his
face. ____'s call experiment drums up quite a bit of public resentment, and
he is eventually instructed by his boss to stop calling at once. ____ loses
1 Charisma point due to public anger regarding his calls.

"Song and Dance" 50% Chance
Phone polling is so dated - and no one wants to talk to anything resembling
a telemarketer anyway. ____ opts for a more unconventional approach, and he
begins to serenade families from their front porch. "When the poll person 
comes and a'rings the door bell, that' a polling..." While his methods
frighten a few families, ____ finds that he's earned a reputation in town as
good entertainment and a respectable poller. His numbers are up - and so is
he! ____ earns 1 Charisma point for his newfound local fame.

"Song and Dance" 50% Chance
In a rare fit of self-confidence and possible insanity, ____ decides that
people would love to be seneraded by their local pollster. He pens a few
songs, straps on a guitar, and begins his daily rounds. As it turns out,
it's amazing how much Sims DON'T want to be seneraded by their pollsters.
____ is booed and shooed, and he ducks more than one errant tomato. In the
end, the local police department fines him §50 for disturbing the peace, and
____'s minstrel days are over - back to normal door-to-door work for him.

*****************
*Campaign Worker*
*****************

While working on the phones at the campaign office, ____ receives a call 
from a reporter claiming to be from the SimCity Herald. The reporter says

____ squeezes out of the tightly packed phone bank and goes to look for
the council member's personal assistant, whom he finds embroiled in three
conservations and one phone call already. ____ informs her that there is a 
woman from the Herald on the phone with some questions. The assistant gives
____ the "okay" sign and mouths the worlds "thank-you." ____ receives 1
charisma skill point.

"Get Assistant" 15% Chance
____ tries to free himself from the sardine tin can of campaign workers all
busy answering phones. As he squeezes out of his chair and out from 
underneath his section of the folding card table, he trips over his table,
ripping the entire bank of phones out of their sockets, and effectively
hanging up the reporter. ____ is forced to pay §65 to replace his phone. 

"Answer" 15% Chance
____ informs the reporter that he'd be happy to go on the record in response
to any questions directly pertaining to the campaign. After answering three
or four questions, the reporter thanks him and ends the call. ____'s name
appears that night in the evening paper, attached to some eloquent quotes
which perfectly toe the party's line. ____ is immediately promoted to
Intern.

"Answer" 85% Chance
____ tells the woman on the phone that he'd be happy to answer any of her
questions, seeing that he IS an offical Campaign Worker. After a few strange
questions, included "Where does the council member normally dine out?" ____
begins to suspect that something is amiss. That evening a local tabloid runs
an expose on the council member and quotes ____ severely out of context.
There's no excuse ____ can make, and he's fired on the spot.

********
*Intern*
********

The controller has a stack of paperwork on his desk that ____ has been asked 
to read through and assign priority levels to the tasks. About halfway through
the stack, she finds some speeches that the controller has been asked to edit.
____ has an okay eye for syntax, and she knows how busy the controller is, so
she could try editing them herself, or scan the speeches into her word 
processor and run the grammer check on them.

"Edit" 85% Chance
____ carefully reads through the speeches and finds a few typos, as well as 
some really awkward syntax. She dutifully marks the errors and suggest the 
proper changes, before returning the speeches to a relatively un-cluttered
section of the controller's desk, along with a sticky note that says "Done".
The entire process has taken her almost two hours, and when the controller 
returns, ____'s barely started on prioritizing the stack of paperwork. The
controller chastises her and makes it clear that he needs an intern that will
do what she's told first, and THEN spend whatever free time she has being
industrious. ____ is sent back to work on the campaign phones. 

"Edit" 15% Chance
____ carefully reads through the speeches and finds a few typos, as well as
some really awkward syntax. He dutifully marks the errors and suggest the 
proper changes, before returning the speeches to a relatively un-cluttered
section of the controller's desk, along with a sticky note that says "Done".
When the controller gets back to her desk, she's overjoyed at having one less
task on her plate. She scans over the documents, approves the changes, and 
sends ____ off for an extra long lunch. ____ earns 1 Logic Point.

"Grammar Check" 85% Chance
____ runs the speeches through the office scanner and sends the electronic
versions to his desktop computer. After running some state-of-the-art 
optical character recognition, he plugs the document into his word processor
and lets the built-in grammar check do its thing. It finds only two
verb-agreement issues and a couple of typos, and even though the changes
it suggests are actually worse than the errors it's trying to fix, ____ makes
the changes manually and sends the documents to the controller. She is so
pleased to have soft copies of the speech, not to mention edited versions
that she channels some funds out of the inflated road repair budget and 
tells ____ to buy himself something nice. ____ earns §500 Simoleons. 

"Grammar Check" 15% Chance
____ scans the documents, pligs them into his word processor and lets the
built-in grammar check do its thing. Upon completion he sends the 
documents off to the controller without even double-checking (trusting
in the wisdom of Microscotch's grammar check). Apparently, the controller,
trusting in ____, sent the speeches off without reviewing them either,
because a few hours later the controller gets an irate phone call from 
someone at the legislator's office. It seems as though the grammar check
somehow managed to replace the entire contents of one of the speeches with
the first two acts of "Titus Andronicus," and as inexplicable as it may
be, ____ is fired for his mistake.

the part in his white sneakers and candy striper uniform. He hears a buzzer -
and looking around, he realises with dismay that he's being paged to room 
146 - known as the infamous "Leaky Bladder" room. Should he suggest a bedpan
(which he will then have to clean) or should he try and get the resident
to the bathroom in time?

"Bedpan" 85% Chance

kind demeanor that a glowing compliment is passed to ____'s supervisor, who 
names him Employee of the Month. ____ receives a §100 prize.

"Bedpan" 15% Chance
Knowing that the bathroom is a lost cause, ____ distainfully pulls out a 
bedpan and tries to get the resident to use it. Unfortunately, ____'s distaste
for the situation comes out a little too clearly on his face. The resident
refuses to use the bedpan in ____'s presence, and demands a "more caring"
attendant. The resident will not be rebuffed, and ____ is forced to ask 
someone else to deal with his resident. ____ loses 1 Charisma Skill Point
due to his less-than-stellar bedside manner.

"Bathroom" 15% Chance
____, like most Sims, has a distaste for handling bedpans, and he encourages
the resident to get up and head to the bathroom. It's an arduous process - 
moving the portable IV stand and monitors along with the resident - but
eventually they make it to the restroom. Once the resident is back in bed,
he praises ____ for his patience. "It means a lot, to be treated like a normal
Sim and allowed to do normal things once in a while." ____ leaves with a 
greater understanding of the resident's experience, and he gains 1 Charisma
skill point.

"Bathroom" 85% Chance
Bedpans are horrid, and cleaning them is even worse. ____ decides that his
resident will use the restroom no matter what. Despite the resident's 
reticence, ____ gets everything set up and half-drags the exhausted resident
to the restroom. But ____ isn't fast enough - the exhausted resident can't
hold it in, and urinates all over both of them. ____'s boss forces him to
clean up the mess by himself and docks ____ a day's pay for mistreating a 
resident.

waiting.  Should _____ try and find the woman a room, or ask her to sit down
like everyone else?

"Find a Room" 85% Chance
_____ is worried about the mother-to-be, who is obviously in pain.  _____ 
sneaks around and finds a bed that has just been emptied, and quickly ferries
the mother to the bed, slipping her chart into one of the doctor's queues.  
Upon closer observation, the woman is definitely in the midst of labor, and
within 15 minutes of setting up a room for her, the baby is born! If _____
hadn't snagged an open bed, the poor woman might have given birth in the 
waiting room!  _____ is offered a promotion to Emergency Medical Technician
for her compassion and quick thinking.

"Find a Room" 15% Chance
____ is determined to help the woman, and he consequently sneaks the mother
into a room that was just about to be allocated to another patient in the 
ER. Just a few minutes later, several patients arrive in critical 
condition, and there is no place for them in the ER! ____'s boss discovers
that he has gone behind their backs and is quite angry, since the hospital
has strict policies about assigning patients to rooms. Luckily, the crisis
patients are taken care of, but ____ is fined 2 days pay for his error.

"Make Her Wait" 15% Chance
While ____ feels for the woman, he must stick to regulation and ask the 
mother-to-be to wait until an obstetrician can see her. In the meantime, 
____ takes special care of the woman, obtaining some painkillers and ice
from the nurses to make the wait easier. In a few hours, the mother is 
admitted and gives birth to a healthy baby boy. ____ is praised for his
competent and caring handling of the mother's situation, and gains 1 
Mechanical Skill Point for the lessons he learned in the process.

"Make Her Wait"  85% Chance
_____ believes this is not a critical situation, so she errs on the side of
safety and asks the woman to please wait her turn. In her haste, _____ forgot
to ask about the woman's contractions, which are just about a minute apart.  
The mother-to-be is only sitting for a few minutes before she goes into 
full-blown labor, and doctors arrive only minutes before the baby is delivered

____'s employer, and ____ is promptly fired.

"Cappucino" 85% Chance
Who doesn't like a good Caramel Venti Cinnamon Cappucino? ____ tries to 
grab a couple of these delectable coffee drinks at a ritzy corner shop,

most people don't know how painful a paintball can really be! Yet one day, an
old enemy comes in with a group of her friends and treats ____ quite rudely
while attempting to rent equipment. He's tempted to give this group the

It'll be fun to watch them sweat a little - so ____ goes ahead and issues the
group a set of "defective" paintball guns from the back room. They look just 
like regular paintball guns, but they sure don't act like them. It's like 
watching a silent movie, seeing the players out on the field: hilarity ensues

the main group and break into a hidden maintenance shed! The group tries to

for stopping the theft in its tracks.

choice. He has a hard time coming up with something, and he's scribbling
hasty sentences right up until the bell. ____'s poorly informed answers fail
to make a good impression on his teacher, and ____ fails the exam. ____ loses
a week's pay as he studies for his re-examination.

"Llama Altercation" 50% Chance

delicate social underpinnings of the Llama Altercation. He writes a 
thought-provoking analysis of the Llama motivation from a new perspective 
that simply blows away the teaching staff. To his delight, ____ passes with
flying colours - but he is awarded a §500 "Llama Appreciation Scholarship"
by the Corps for his groundbreaking essay.

"Llama Altercation" 50% Chance
____ begins the write about the Llama Altercation, finding himself at a loss

declares that the guilty recruit should be placed on Kitchen Duty until such
a time as he can take control of his hunger and his weight. The Drill Sergeant
pauses and informs ____ that he agrees with him, but that he thinks this 
struggling recruit would also benefit from some "direct" management. ____ is
assigned to kitchen duty as well, and though it isn't the best time he's had,
he does manage to earn a Cooking skill point in the process.

"Kitchen Duty" 15% Chance
____ makes up his mind and wanders over to the Drill Sergeant's private
quarters. He steels himself to all the possibilities that could arise from

Reds." Not wishing to be involved in any skirmish where he
 could possibly ever
find himself beginning a story with "Well
 kids, back at the beginning of the 
Wiener Wars," _____ decides it's time to make his exit: he quickly goes AWOL.
The war begins, and although it only lasts for 7 hours, the toll on the 
processed 
meat industry is staggering. _____ is, of course, fired - but it

long way home, or try to use the shortcut through a local construction site?

Even though his intentions were good, ____ is fired for endangering the
children and abandoning his post.

***********************
*Parking Lot Attendant*
***********************

_____ wipes the sweat from his brow in the midst of another unforgiving day on
the lot. The pay is low, and he always goes home with a migraine from the
exhaust. Today is no exception - the lot fills quickly due to a special event
at the local stadium, and they are turning cars away. A co-worker wants to use
the empty lot next door as overflow parking and keep the money for themselves.
Should _____ get in on the action?

"Park and Pocket" 15% Chance
Free money? Why not! ____ agrees to help in the scheme, which certainly 
seems harmless enough. They take the chains blocking off the field and begin
their unoffical parking operation. Business is bustling, and since the 
supervisors have the night off, no one finds out about the little endeavour.
____ pockets §175, his share in the Great Parking Escapade.

"Park and Pocket" 85% Chance
____'s not one for turning down free money - since this plan is foolproof,
____ goes along for the ride. They take down the perimeter chains and begin
to park cars in the abandoned lot. About a half hour later, a stadium 
employee in a business suit approaches ____ and informs him that they are
illegally trespassing on stadium property - the empty lot belongs to them.
____ and his co-workers are forced to hand over all the money they have
made, and each of them are fined §150 for trespassing on private property.
____ loses §150.

"Stand Aside" 85% Chance
_____ doesn't want to risk getting in trouble - after all, no one knows 
exactly who owns the empty lot next to them. Instead, _____ suggests a valet
parking solution to his supervisor - it's a legitimate way to crame more cars 
into the lot. The idea is a success - and now that it's valet parking, the 
company can charge more for each car parked!  _____'s supervisor is impressed
with his initiative, and recommends him for a security guard position at a 
local office building. _____ is promoted to Security Guard.

"Stand Aside" 15% Chance
Skeptical, ____ decides not to help in the parking scheme, and spends his
time monitoring the cars on the lot. He watches for any sign of his
supervisor or the police, but none ever arrive. The evening ends uneventfully,
and those who participated have pocketed a nice chunk of change. Even though
he goes home empty handed, ____ is glad that he took the high road - a few
days later, his coworkers are busted in the act and fined for trespassing.

****************
*Security Guard*
****************

While monitoring the surveillance cameras ____ spots someone enter the
elevator with a computer. He's sure that he's never seen them before, but
isn't sure what to do. Should he call the police or confront the suspicious
character?

"Call Police" 85% Chance
____ calls the police and continues to monitor the suspicious activities. 
The police arrive just as the man carrying the computer is leaving the
building. There has been a sting of robberies lately, and the police believe
that this man is the culprit. ____ receives a §500 reward for aiding in the
apprehension of the "Big Buliding Bandit".

"Call Police" 15% Chance
____ calls the police and continues to monitor the suspicious activities. 
The police arrive just as the man carrying the computer is leaving the
building. ____ recalls a news report about a string of late night business
robberies, and informs the officers on scene that she believes the man to be
involved in the crime wave. Upon further investigation the man turns out to 
be the corporation's new President of Operations. Nevertheless, he is not
impressed with ____'s rash reaction and fires her on the spot. 

"Confront" 15% Chance
As ____ waits for the elevator to reach the parking level she recalls a news
report about a string of late night business robberies. The doors open and
____ confronts the suspicious man, asking to see her Company ID card. The man
makes as if to reach for his wallet, but instead drops the computer and 
runs. ____ runs him down and apprehends the computer thief. When the police
arrive they inform ____ that she's caught the "Big Building Bandit" and
recommend they join the Police Force. ____ is promoted to Cadet.

"Confront" 85% Chance
As ____ waits for the elevator to reach the parking level he recalls a news
report about a string of late night business robberies. The doors open and
____ confronts the suspicious woman, asking to see her Company ID card. The
woman makes as if to reach for her wallet, but knowing better than to let a
criminal reach into her coat, ____ tackles her to the ground. The computer
is smashed to bits, and the woman turns out to be a company employee.  Luckily
she takes ____'s mistake in good humor, but ____ is forced to pay §349 to 
replace the computer.

************
*Dishwisher*
************

It's another dreary night, and ____ is up to her elbows in slimy dishwater
with an embarrassing case of dishpan hands. She has one last bit of cleanup
to do for the night when the head chef, Lefromage, runs frantically into the
kitchen, arms flailing like a dying lobster. "Mon Dieu! A critic has come,
and ze staff has gone home for ze night! Can you help cook?" Can ____ trust
herself not to set the kitchen on fire, or should she stick to the dishpan
hands?

"Keep Cleaning" 85% Chance
____ doesn't feel confident enough to help prepare food, and besides - that
last stack of plates really stinks! As she's finishing her last scrubbing,
Lefromage frantically appears - the "critic" has revealed himself to be a
county health inspector! ____ frantically disposes of the wandering roaches
and cleans up the rest of the mess in the sink before giving him a tour of
the kitchen. If she had left that mess lying around, he might have shut down
the restaurant! ____'s grateful manager decides to get her a §150 bonus in 
her next paycheck as thanks for her sparkling performance.

"Keep Cleaning" 15% Chance
Lefromage is very upset at ____'s refusal. "Ze insolence!" he cries. Visibly
flustered, he does his best to finish the meal satisfactorily, but somehow
the lobster in pickle sauce doesn't seem quite right. In the end, the critic
is quite displeased with the lackluster food and promises to write an 
unfavourable review. He is true to his word: a few days after the scathing
review, the restaurant shuts down, taking ____'s job along with it. Zut
alors!

"Fire up the Burner!" 15% Chance
____ agrees to help cook, and Lefromage issues a few preparations instructions
before going out to take the critic's order. Mercifully, he choses a 
deliciously simple dish - in fact, ____ has disposed of the leftovers of this
dish so many times that she could make it in her sleep! (A few scallions
there, some orange peel here...) The critic is delighted. After securing
the rave review, Lefromage offers ____ private cooking lessons as his thanks
for a job well done, neting ____ 2 cooking points from the expert tutelage.

"Fire up the Burner!" 85% Chance
When the order comes in, chaos ensues - and ____'s peanut butter sandwich
don't help her in the slightest. She absent-mindedly sets her dishrag down
on the cook stove and starts a fire that consumes most of the dish intended
for the critic! A few overcooked escargots later, the critic leaves several
shades of red darker than the tomatoes that survived the fire. Lefromage,
serious at being misled about ____'s cooking expertise, docks her a full
day's pay for the embarrassing incident.

*********************
*Drive Through Clerk*
*********************

It's late, and ____ is working the drive-through all by his lonesome - lots of
responsibility for little pay. Suddenly, the otherwise quiet night is ruined
when local rich kid Mimi Landgrabb and some of her hoodlum friends pull up 
( ____ recognizes them by the indecent language coming through the tiny 
speaker.) From what he's heard from other employees, _____ is pretty sure 
they're going to drive off without paying. Should he fill out the order, or 
should he treat them to a bit of their own medicine?

"Fries with that?" 15% Chance
Although he's surely tempted, ____'s never been one for pranks - especially 
when they might cost him a job. Even though it will probably come out of his
salary, he fills the order and hands it off to Mimi. Much to ____'s surprise,
Mimi winks at him and hands him 200 Simoleons. "Keep the change, cutie." The
car speeds away, and ____ can't help and smile at his profitable turn of 
events. (Did she call him a cutie?) ____ pockets §150.

"Fries with that?" 85% Chance
____ dutifully fills the order to the letter, grumbling under her breath
the entire time. She reluctantly hands the greasy bags of burgers over to
Dudley's crew, and they shove a few bills in her hand before speeding
off. Relieved, ____ sets the money down and takes a deep breath! She didn't
think they'd really pay! It's not until they're long gone that she looks down
and realises that they've given her FAKE money. Looks like that §100 
Simoleon order is coming out of ____'s pocket.

"Teach them a lesson!" 85% Chance
Tired of taking flak from ungrateful customers, ____ decides to take matters
into her own hands. With a mischievous grin, she discreetly fills several
fast food bags with empty cartons. For the top of the bags, ____ grabs some
of the oldest food they've got left in the kitchen. As expected, Dudley's
crew snatches the bags and speeds off without paying - or checking their
orders. Oddly enough, they stopped showing up - to the delight of the entire
staff. ____'s creative problem solving tactics earn her 1 Creativity point.

"Teach them a lesson!" 15% Chance
Tired of taking flak from ungrateful customers, ____ dedides to take matters
into her own hands. She fills the bags with crumpled paper, adding a few
containers of French fries on top to make things seem realistic. What she
didn't expect was a hungry Dudley handing her a wad of Simoleons, then
rifling through the bag for his burger. "Hey! You tried to stiff us!" he
cries after realising what's happened. "I'm gonna tell my DAD!" The wealthy
Landgrabbs file a complaint against ____, who is quickly fired.

*************************
*Fast Food Shift Manager*
*************************

The movie theater down the street just let out and ____'s restaurant is
PACKED. (One might think they'd be full after those absurdly sized movie
drinks, but no such luck.) He's barking orders left and right when suddenly
the unthinkable happens: the Uberburger 3000 breaks down in an entirely
ungraceful puff of smoke. Now the restaurant smells like charcoal and there
isn't a burger in sight. Should he try to keep going without the Uberburger,
or take the repair into his own hands?

"Who needs Burgers?" 85% Chance
Who needs burgers anyway?  While his staff out front is explaining the
situation, _____ makes an emergency run and begins preparing some of his
ultra-secret-recipe VeggieMight burgers.  he ravenous hordes of customers are
so hungry that they'll try anything - but once they've tried his "burgers", 
they just can't get enough! When _____'s manager Jennie arrives and sees
hundreds of happy customers, it's clear to her that _____'s true calling is in
the kitchen.  _____ gains 1 Cooking Point and 1 Charisma point for the 
VeggieMight sensation.

"Who needs Burgers?" 15% Chance
_____ sees the throngs of customers and knows that there's profit to be had.
He instructs his staff to deep-fry the hamburger patties instead of sending 
them through the Uberburger. Unfortunately, this backfires and breaks the
Frency fry fryers as well. Now the entire kitchen is filled with acrid smoke  
and an undeniable stench. The customers back out of the restaurant in horror,
and the incompetence of the staff makes the local news.  _____'s furious boss
docks §500 for the repair of BOTH machines from _____'s modest paycheck.

"Roll up those Sleeves!" 15% Chance
____ tries pressing all of the Uberburger's buttons like a three-year-old in
a spaceship, but that doesn't seem to help. In her frustration, ____ 
remembers overhearing the repairman talking about the Uberburger's powerful
air intake. Apparently, it has a tendency to suck up kitchen utensils like
a vacuum! Making sure to shut things down first, ____ unscrews the back
plate and discovers an Ultra Mega Super-sized milkshake cup embedded in the
main conveyor. She carefully extracts the cup and brings the Uberburger 
roaring back to life. ____ gains one Logic point and a modest bonus for her
cost-saving heroics.

"Roll up those Sleeves!" 85% Chance
Eager to be a hero, _____ digs up a greasy screwdriver and rolls up his
sleeves. "It's probably just a patty jammed somewhere," he thinks to himself.
Recklessly, _____ unscrews a panel despite the large "Caution" display on 
the front. As soon as the panel is removed, a small piece of machinery springs
out and bounces around the kitchen, eventually hitting the fry cook in the
head and injuring him before falling into the fryer. _____'s irresponsible
disregard for safety precautions costs him a demotion to Fast Food Order Taker
and a Logic skill point.

[16.10] Science

********************
*Lab Glass Scrubber*
********************

Working late one night, ____ catches a fright when he notices his boss Dr.
Finkelstein has left one of his head-in-a-jar experiments over a Bunsen
Burner. Doc doesn't normally leave floating heads in jars above flames 
overnight, as a general rule. Should ____ dismantle the experiment or leave it
be?

"Dismantle" 85% Chance
Dr. Finkelstein has seemed to be a bit more careless as of late - no doubt
stress brought on by recent legislation against "mad" scienists. ____ knows
this was a mistake - so he quickly turns off the flame and returns the
head-in-a-jar to its normal resting place in the refrigerator. While ____
tells Dr. Fink about his discovery the next day, the Doc is overjoyed - 
apparently head in jars are somewhat hard to come by. ____ gains 1 Logic
Point for rescuing the experiment.

"Dismantle" 15% Chance
Dr. Finkelstein has seemed to be a bit more careless as of late - no doubt
stress brought on by recent legislation against "mad" scienists. ____ is quite
sure that this was an accident on Dr. Fink's part, so he quietly shuts down
the contrapion and returns the hear-in-jar to the fridge. ____ comes to work
the next day expecting accolades, but finds instead a VERY angry Dr. Fink,
who hands him a pink slip for his "destructive meddling". ____ is fired!

"Don't Touch" 15% Chance
____ knows Dr. Finkelstein - and while he might be classified as a bit "mad",
he's certainly not stupid. ____ simply checks the flame, makes sure there's
enough power, and finishes scrubbing tasks at the sink. Sure enough, Doc
comes in the next day and is positively overjoyed at the results of his
mysterious experiment. Whatever his head-in-a-jar did, it earned the 
laboratory a good deal of money, and ____ finds a nice §170 bonus in his
paycheck. Good thing he didn't turn that flame off...

"Don't Touch" 85% Chance
____ doesn't like to mess with Dr. Fink's experimental work, so he simply
ignores the contraption and finishes scrubbing that particularly nasty test
tube. Alas, ____ arrives the next morning to find Dr. Fink clutching his
head in one hand and his ruined head-in-a-jar in the other. Doc didn't mean
to leave the experiment running - and now all of his work for the month is
ruined! Things will eventually look up, but Dr. Fink can't afford to pay
____ his wages for the week.

**************
*Test Subject*
**************

Having grown nearly immune to the electroshock stimulus, the ESP research team
is finally convinced that ____ has absolutely no psychic powers whatsoever.
So she's been moved on to the Theoretical Color Research division, where her
first test involves nothing more than sitting in a sterile test room, selecting
one of two colored lengths of licorice and ingesting it. Should ____ eat the
red licorice or the blue licorice?

"Red" 50% Chance
____ looks over the stark and sterile testing room, the single cold steel 
table, and the two stems of malleable licorice each in their own little paper
cups. She takes the Red licorice, chews it up, and shows her empty mouth to
the observation mirror. A solemn voice comes on over the buzzing loud-speaker
informing ____ that she has made the correct choice. Not really understanding
why, ____ is thanked for her time and sent on her way with a §500 Simoleon
bonus.

"Red" 50% Chance
____ surveys the brightly lit testing room, noting the oddly shaped glass 
table strangely reminiscent of dental equipment. Lost in thought, a soft voice
comes on over the crackling loud speaker reminding ____ that the choice is 
simple: the red licorice or the blue licorice.  ____ turns a blank start to
the one-way mirror, picks up the red licorice and tosses it into her mouth. A
few seconds pass and there's still no answer from the scientists behind the
mirror. ____ gets up to leave, but the wall speaker hums to life and informs
her that she's made the wrong decision and will no longer be needed in the
experiment. ____'s lost her job.

"Blue" 50% Chance
____ stares blankly into the one-way mirror, listening to the instructions
coming over the monaural wall speaker hung next to the digital clock
eternally blinking 12:00am. Not really understanding the test, ____'s 
trust in the scientific method, picks up the length of blue licorice and
chomps it down. The wall speaker hums back to life, and a low voice thanks
her for her time, adding that she's done very well. ____ takes this as her
cue to go, and head out to the lounge for a cup of coffee. As she's walking
her head begins to tingle, and though she doesn't know it, ____'s earned
1 Logic skill point!

"Blue" 50% Chance
____ takes a lap around the strangely bifurcated glass display table and
surveys the two paper cups each containing her choice of seemingly tasty
licorice. Beside the table, the room is almost empty except for a one-way
mirror and a small monaural wall speaker. ____ doesn't see much choice,
or any reason why she should even worry about making a choice, so she picks
up the blue licorice, chews it and swallows without any trouble. She waits
for word from the wall speaker, and when she doesn't hear any, walks out and
down the corridor to the lounge. As she's pouring herself a cup of coffee she
slips on a banana peel and crashes to the floor taking the coffee machine
with her. ____'s okay, but has to replace the coffee machine she's broken,
forking over 127 Simoleons.

***************
*Lab Assistant*
***************

____'s been given a large amount of test suites to run. Normally she's used
to having a bit of free rein in the lab, fixing up some of the machinery,
playing with the mice and with Wiki the signing chimpanzee, but now all of a
sudden the lead researcher has ____ running these simple and formulaic tests
that even Wiki could do, and ____'s not so happy about it. Then it occurs to
her that Wiki the signing chimpanzee COULD run the test suites! After all, all
they are is a bunch of checkboxes, one after the other. ____ never pays much
attention to them anyways. Should ____ let Wiki do the test suites, or take a
stand for herself and tell her boss what she thinks?

"Let Wiki" 85% Chance
____ sets Wiki up with a ball point pen, taking extra care to explain the
inherant dangers of pens with regards to visual impairment and to being 
"mightier than the sword in the hands of chimpanzees entirely great." She
lets Wiki out of his cage, hands him a stack of test suites, explains how
to fill the in and promises him some extra bananas later. Tasks in hand, ____
takes the afternoon off to catch up on some of the latest scientific
journals, earning herself 1 Logic skill point.

"Let Wiki" 15% Chance
____ sets Wiki up with a ball point pen, taking extra care to explain the
inherant dangers of pens with regards to visual impairment, and puts
Wiki at her desk with the stack of test suites. ____ makes herself a cup
of coffee and snuggles up in the lounge area with a throw blanket and
the lastest scientific journals, but just as she's flipping to an article
outlining the ever shrinking distinction between objective and subjective
observation, Wiki comes storming down the hallway in a flurry of broken
pens and test suites. ____ gives chase, but the chimpanzee makes it out
the front doors and into the surrounding forest before ____ even has the
time to sound the alarm. It looks as though the repetitive nature of
the simple tests was too much even for Wiki, and ____ is forced to pay
for a replacement chimpanzee, costing her §867.

"Speak Mind" 15% Chance
_____ marches down the long hallway of test subjects, past the cubicles of lab
assistants, all crammed together, sometimes 2 or 3 Sims per cube, and right 
into her boss's office.  Without even waiting for him to look up from his 
latte, _____ launches into her tirade, explaining that she is a valuable 
research asset, and that she considers it waste of her time, as well as an 
insult, that she has to spend five minutes of her day, every day, verifying
that gravity does in fact still function in SimCity and then checking off the
appropriate check box on her long list of test suites.  The Lead Researcher
looks over the list and tosses it into his circular filing drawer, informing
_____ that the whole process was just a test to measure her capacity for 
independent thinking.  _____'s gains an unexpected §700 bonus for seeing 
through the charade.

"Speak Mind" 85% Chance
____ grabs up the test suites and marches down the corridor to the Lead 
Researcher's office. She goes to open the door, but stop short and pauses
in thought. She tears the pages to shreds, dumps them unceremoniously on the
floor, produces a book of matches, and lights them ablaze. Content that she's
made her point, ____ returns to the laboratory and goes about fixing the focal
lens on a malfunctioning microscope. It isn't long before the Lead Researcher 
appears, still coughing, and asks if ____ had anything to do with the small
bonfire recently constructed outside of his office door. ____ stands her
ground, explains her issues with the test suites, and is immediately demoted
to Test Subject.

[17] Job Rewards

This section is devoted to your Sim's hard work at their place of Work. They
receive a job reward when they reach a certain level of work. Don't move house
when you get one, or else you have to start from day one to get the reward 
back.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.01] Politics

Enterprise Office Concepts Bushmaster Tele-Prompter
Job Level: City Council Member (5)
Increase Skill: Charisma
Increase Motive: Fun
Bonus: None

"Stand tall, furrow your brow, and just say the words with the Bushmaster
Tele-Prompter. Transparent overlays display text at varying speeds for
"tortoise" to "hare" fast. Adjust the font size to ease those aching eyes.
Exercise your verbal skills with the Bushmaster Tele-Prompter!"

This is a okay reward. Increases fun and charisma at the same time. Since fun
really increases your mood and charisma is needed in many jobs, this is a 
great reward for the money makers out there. Also, kids like to use it too, 
however, they like to burp onto the mike, and the gas release isn't nice.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.02] Medicine

TraumaTime "Incision Precision" Surgical Training Station"
Job Level: Intern (4)
Increase Skill: Mechanical
Increase Motive: Fun
Bonus: Laughter

"Sims venturing into the medicial field can sharpen up their mechanical skills
with "Incision Percision". The true-to-life features include genuinely clammy
fake organs and a functioning circulatory system. Dive into the faux gall
bladder, small intestine, panceras, inferior epigastric vessels, and other
organs and make them new again.

This is a great reward. The reason is that mechanical is not leveled up during
the course of the game if you Sims have free will on. You can increase your
skill and your fun for your Sim at the same time. No risk of zapping 
themselves in this area. Laugh as your Sims pull out vital organs and through
it away. Then pull out screwdrivers, spray cans, glass cups, etc and put it 
back in.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.03] Business

Execuputter
Job Level: Executive (5)
Increase Skill: Charisma
Increase Motive: Fun
Bonus: Nothing

"Why should your Sim sit through boring business lunches when they can play 
golf instead? The Execuputter features imported synthetic imitation grass, 
along with simulated water and sand traps so that Sims can work on their swing
while building charisma points - and hobnobbing with important business 
contacts."

This is okay. Nothing funny about a Sim trying their best to hit a golf ball.
Lack of comment means lack of comment. Get it or not, I don't really care 
about it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.04] Athletic

Exerto Punching Bag
Job Level: All Star (5)
Increase Skill: Body
Increase Motive: Fun
Bonus: Watching Sims Kickboxing

"Float like a moth and sting like a yellowjacket! With the Exerto Punching
Bag, athletic Sims can punch away to release tension and keep in shape while
building a useful career skill."

The punching bag can increase your body skill fast. It is probably the fastest
way to increase your body skill. You do gain fun from this reward but you also
lose quite a lot of hygiene over time, but not as fast as the other fitness
material. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.05] Criminal

SensoTwitch Lie Finder
Job Level: Con Artist (4)
Increase Skill: Creativity
Increase Motive: None
Bonus: Sims getting Zapped

"Don't let the inconvenience of the truth interfere with your career 
ambitions! Hone the skills to lie, cheat, and steal with the SensoTwitch Lie
Finder. Its patented Brainwave Twitch Needle detects even the tiniest nervous
mental tic. Fool the Lie Finder, and you can fool anyone!"

Well, this career is not the best of the rewards. It increases creativity 
which is easy enough to increase. It increases no fun what so ever so there is
no point to get this reward unless you are trying to reach the top of the job
career. The only fun you will see is when your Sim fails to lie and gets a 
massive shock that will do nothing to their motives.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.06] Military

Exerto Selfflog Obstacle Course
Job Level : Junior Officer (4)
Increase Skill: Body
Increase Motive: Fun
Bonus: Laughter

"After a long day at the military base, why not extend the hard work with a 
run through the Selfflog obstacle course? From Exerto, a leading manufacturer
of fitness equipment, this home obstacle course tests your ability to leap
3-foot hurdles, crawl under a canopy of simulated gunfire, and scramble over
a fence-all in the name of fun and fitness."

Its funny to see your Sims take this course. If they go on the hurdles, they 
have a chance of falling down on their bosom. When getting out of the canopy,
their shirts might stick onto the web and attempt to pull their pants down.
This will drag them back. Finally, the end, the scaling of the wall. See your
Sim fall on their buttocks. In my opinion, I think it increases another motive
other than fun, it increases your laughter, try it with a female child, it is
extremely funny *FAQ Writer hurt his bum while watching and writing this bit,
It's that funny.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.07] Slacker

AquaGreen Hydroponic Garden
Job Level: Party DJ (5)
Increase Skill: Creativity
Increase Motive: None
Bonus: Money

"Do your Sims love gardening as a creative outlet yet hate kneeling in the 
soil and getting dirt under their nails? Well, they don't have to anymore with
this hydroponic garden! The AquaGreen ensures that plants receive adequate
moisture and lots of light so your Sims get the fruits without the labor. It's
a slacker's dream!"

This is really worth it in my opinion. All you have to do is to plant the seed
in each of the little 12 pots, and wait 3 days. They grow and you harvest them
by placing it in a pot and selling them in buy mode. You increase your 
creativity by tending them. Plant the seeds and wait the 3 days for §350. You
do nothing. A great deal in my opinion. §350 for free.

However, you have to tend the plants to be able to sell them. Without loving
care, the plants will wilt and die.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.08] Law Enforcement

Prints Charming Fingerprint Scanner
Job Level: Detective (6)
Increase Skill: Cleaning
Increase Motive: Fun
Bonus: None

"It uses ultraviolet radiation to quickly and easily dust fingerprints
everywhere, then display the ironclad evidence right on the viewscreen."

This machine allows your Sim to scan objects around the house and find out
who used it last. It send a spread beam of light to detect for fingerprints
and find out who used it. When it finished with the light scanning, your Sim
either has the choice to find out who it was or comes up with a ?. If it does
end with a question, your Sim will answer it by banging the machine to see if
it really is working.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.09] Culinary

Schokolade 890 Chocolate Manufacturing Facility
Job Level: Prep Cook (6)
Increase Skill: Cooking
Increase Motive: Fun
Bonus: Money

"Fatten your Sims' bank account - and their friends and families too - with
this finely engineered machine. Designed by world-renowned chocolatiers at 
Bavarian Meltonwerks, the Schokolade 890 produces high-quality chocolates that
Sims can pop into their mouths or pop into a box and sell in the §7 billion
a year chocolate industry!

That machine is a definate getter. If your Sim is in a good mood, send him on
it. The Sim will start up the machine, first by turning on the caramel valve,
then mixing chocolate into a mixing bowl, and then the add the two together
machine. Lower leveled Sims will only make §3 per box (which is 3 chocolates)
while more skilled Sims make §4. Your Sim will wait for the chocolate to come
out, dust it with sugar and put it in a box. Sometimes your Sim will leave one
so it can fall in the bin, while others might eat it. Sims with a cooking 
level of 10 will try to avoid this so they make more money. They also increase
their cooking while making money. Great for value. If you have a perfect 
cooking skill of 10, your Sim will not eat the chocolates. If you have a 
cooking skill of over 9, you will make §4 a box, below it will be 3.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.10] Science

SimSanto Inc. Biotech Station
Job Level: Inventor (6)
Increase Skill: Logic
Increase Motive: None
Bonus: Might get or cure a disease and money

"Your Sims are sure to succeed in the world of science with the Simsanto Inc.
Biotech Station! Sims can study old microbes and invent new ones, gaining 
logic skill points and advancing their careers in the process. Includes a
microscope, computer, and refrigerator for storing samples."

This machine is okay. While it might make money, it makes it in small samples,
like §60 for logic skill of 6. However you might get a disease for low level
Logic Sims. They open it and if they cough, they have a disease. You can make
an antidote with the machine but its better to get about 14 hours of rest not
standing up. All I'm saying is, use it at your own Sim's risk.

These jobs are ones that make money, but if not a career path job. There are 
only two mini jobs. A painter and a novelist. They are some of the best jobs
because they allow you to stay at home and not leave the comfort of it. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[18.01] Painter

Creativity finally has a use. A painter requires a lot of creativity to make
a lot of money. You need an art easel and a good mood to be a painter. To
paint, click on an art easel and click the paint option you want. The painting
will take about 6 Sim hours to complete. Then you sell it. The more you make,
the more money you will net. The higher your creativity points tally up to, 
the more you will make. Even when you are maxed out at ten, paintings after
that will still make more money. Some people make 2000 Sim Dollars per 
painting and still make more per painting. Sometimes you make less than the 
last painting but on average, you will make more. A good mood will let you
continue your painting in peace so let your Sim's mood be high green. When
you are painting, only fun will increase. Everything else will decrease with
the exception of environment. 

You don't have to sell your painting though. You can hang it on the wall, as
the game treats it like a regular painting. But be warned, after hanging it
on the wall, there is no way to place it back on the canvas.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[18.02] Novelist

A novelist takes a lot of time to make money. A novelist requires a lot and I
mean a lot of creativity to make a good novel. It takes about 28 hours sitting
on a computer typing away to make a novel. Creativity increases the chance to
make the novel a success. Type away on the computer, and you will not complete
it in a single go so be patient. You have to be in a good mood to write. After
you complete your novel, a message will come saying you have finished and a 
phone call will be on the way. You make money from the royalities if your book
is a success. On my first attempt, my Sim made §2760. Thats good money but I
think that painting is better, but your have to be in a good mood to paint and
it is enabled to be accessed from Free Will.

You usually get between §2000 to §3500 per shot, and doesn't increase like
paintings do. Of course, you can get more, you can get less, it varies and for
27 hours of work, §2000 is not a hell of a lot of money. I think that there
are better ways to make money, not just this. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[19] School

School is an important aspect in the lives of your Sims, young and old. The
young can't bear to do without school, the old can't see them fail. School is
without a doubt, the most important thing that can happen to your Sim. It is 
for free and missing it can lead to the evil Agent of the Social Worker.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[19.01] Public School

Public school is just your basic taxpayer funded school. Teenagers go to 
school at 9am along with children. Carpool arrives at 8am. Teenagers return
home at 1pm and children return home at 3pm. Your children will bring back 
homework for them to complete. Finish the homework and go to school in a very
good mood to improve your Sim's grades. Teens also bring back homework as 
well. However, if you have aging off as a cheat, there will be a point where
they stop bringing back homework. This is because the game will recognise 
the teen or child should have progressed in age and there is no homework until
they actually progress in age. 

Child
Carpool Arrival: 8:00am
School Hours: 9:00am to 3:00pm
Transport: School Bus
Uniform: Everyday Clothes

School Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Free Days: Sunday, Saturday

Teenager
Carpool Arrival: 8:00am
School Hours: 9:00am to 1:00pm
Transport: School Bus
Uniform: Everyday Clothes

School Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Free Days: Sunday, Saturday

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[19.02] Private School

Private Schools have an advantage over the public system. The teenagers who
go to a private school go to work at level 2 instead of level one. That is
because careers think that private school students are more trustworthy than
their public counterparts. This school is a expensive school and an invitation
to the headmaster is necessary to get in. Read the section on inviting the
headmaster to know how to get in. Another difference between Private and 
Public is that Private School students have to wear uniform. Also, the motives
from a Private School drop slower than that of a public school. The motives 
that are slower to drop is Fun, Energy and Social

When you invite the Headmaster over, if you are successful in getting your
children into the Private School, all children in the household are accepted
regardless. 

Child
Carpool Arrival: 8:00am
School Hours: 9:00am to 3:00pm
Transport: School Bus
Uniform: School Uniform

School Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Free Days: Sunday, Saturday

Teenager
Carpool Arrival: 8:00am
School Hours: 9:00am to 1:00pm

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[20] Non-Killing Disasters

This section is about disasters that can change your Sims life but won't kill
them. There are several things like abduction and burglars that can change 
their life. Sure beats getting killed but it is better that you avoid the same
accident that are list below because as a matter of fact, most of these 
accidents can be created by you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[20.01] Abduction

Abduction is when your Sim stargazes with a telescope during the time of 7pm 
and 2am. This is a rare event and doesn't always happen. Its not a glitch so
don't fret about it. When your Sim is abducted, your Sim's needs will be moved
around so if you have a full energy and a low bladder bar, you might be going
to pass out with a full bladder. 

When your Sim is abducted, only your male Sim will be pregnant. Your female 
Sim will have to use the "Try for Baby" option. It is a normal pregnant person
so after 3 days, your Sim will give birth to an alien kid, usually with black
eyes and green skin. It is just like any other Sim, except it is an alien 
looking Sim. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[20.02] Breaking Stuff

Sometimes your Sim's get a little excited with equipment. Then they break it.
Or otherwise screw it up so you can't use it anymore. This is a tragic ending
to the otherwise fine piece of equipment. Most times like computers can be 
fixed by your Sims and by the repairman or repairwoman. If you have high 
Mechanical skill, you can fix the object easily, but if you fail look at the
section below on electrocution. These are the objects that can be broken can
how you fix it. The ones that will zap you are marked.

Trash Compactor - Repair - ZAP
Dishwasher - Repair - ZAP
Toilet - Unclog
Piano - Tune
Computer - Repair - ZAP
Stereo - Repair - ZAP
Bath - Repair 
Shower - Repair
Grandfather Clock - Maintain

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[20.03] Burglars

Would you like someone stealing your hard-earned furniture? Well, every so 
often, a burglar will come in between 10pm and 4am usually when your Sims are 
fast asleep with a ZZZ over their heads. The burglar will enter your house,
go through a few rooms and take your most expensive stuff. He will take up to
5 items tops. If you have a burglar alarm (you are very stupid not to have
one), the burglar will panic and try to run. When the alarm sounds, the cops
will arrive and try to arrest the guy.

If the cops see the burglar, they will fight the burglar (why can't they just
shoot them with a pistol or rifle or something?). This is the same as if you
did, Attack and Fight (except you can't use it). If the burglar wins, he 
escapes and you won't see him again for a while. If the cop wins, the burglar
is arrested and you receive §500 reward money and if he stole something from 
you, you get the depreciated value of the object not a replacement from your
Sim's insurance company (I guess that they don't have a old for new policy).
It also seems that you can free the burglar when he is arrested. You can free
him with the cop just gives you the reward money. When he does, click on the
cop car and when you do, open the rear door. When you let the burglar escape,
you get a double + relationship with the burglar but when the cop realises 
what you have done, you will get a double - relationship with the cop as they
are pissed they have to fight someone while they are trying to steal something
from you only to be realised by the potential victim. 

Both buy and build mode are disabled so you can't do anything to get the 
objects away.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[20.04] Flooding

Flooding is when you have a leaking object like a toilet and it is broken. The
object leaks and waters freely flows. This leaves puddles everywhere and you
lose on the environment score severely. If you don't fix the problem, the 
water will leak throughout the house and will eventually appear outside. To
fix this problem, mop up the leaks and fix the broken leaking object.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[20.05] Pass Out

Passing out is when your Sim runs out of gas, which means your Sim has a 
energy bar that is fully red. They will fall asleep on the spot. This will 
cause them to slowly regain their energy at the expense of comfort. Your Sim
will block the way of others and if their is a burglar and your Sim is on the
doorway, the burglar can't get in. That has happened to me once and it is 
funny.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[20.06] Pee Pants

Doing a piss in your pants is not a funny thing what so ever. So your Sims 
will not be very pleased with themselves if they pee their pants. Your Sim 
will only do this if your bladder is completely red and they can't reach a
toilet. They pee their pants or rather have an accident and their hygiene 
in return for have a fully green bladder will be completely red. This will 
leave a puddle on the floor, which you will have to clean. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21] Killing Disasters

These disasters are not like the ones above, these can kill your Sim so read
carefully. Teenagers, adults and elders are able to be killed but children,
toddlers and babies are cannot be killed. I've received word that if a Sim 
catches a disease, your infected Sim can pass on the contagious disease to a 
child. The children cannot be killed, even with the worst diseases. If they
do get injured or sick and such, the Social Worker will pay a visit and 
kidnap them. 

This chapter allows you access to kill off your Sims. Make sure you want to 
do this because there is no way to bring a dead Sim back to their normal
state. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.01] Diseases

There are 5 diseases that your Sim can contract. Some are avoidable and can
be prevented but some are unavoidable and however elusive your Sim can get,
it will chase them. Teenagers, Adults and Elders can all contract diseases. 
The five diseases are 

Cold
Flu
Food Poisoning
Pneumonia
Virus

A cold is the basic disease. You have a chance of contracting the flu when 
your Sim goes to school or work go the only Sims who can't catch the flu
directly are unemployed adults and elders. You can tell when your Sim has the
flu when you hear the Sim cough and sneeze. The cold is easy to spread around
so any social interactions with a sick Sim can result in the other Sim 
catching the flu as well. This disease is not fatal (it won't kill) but left
untreated, it will turn into pneumonia. 

A flu is an uncommon disease, as it can only be caught if your Sim is near 
some disgusting cockroaches. This roaches only appear if your house is filthy
so if you have a clean house, you won't have roaches. Your can tell when your
Sim has the flu when your Sim starts to cough and goes to the dunny as a 
result of diarrhea. Like the cold, the flu is contracted to other Sims via
Social Interactions but it will kill your Sim if left untreated.

Food Poisoning is a disease you can easily avoid. It will only become 
contracted if you eat food that has gone off (which has a green cloud over it
and flies) or if you lick clean a plate which has a green cloud over it. It is
not contagious so don't worry about your other Sims' but if you see that Sim
going to the toilet a lot (even if it is a full bladder bar) it means that 
they have constipation, and if they throw up, chances are that they have been
poisoned via food. This will kill you if untreated.

Pneumonia is the severe version of the cold. It is formed if you fail to treat
or too lazy to treat the cold. Signs of this disease is when you see your Sim
coughing and very tired (going to sleep a lot). It is contagious but not as
bad as the cold, but unlike the cold, it will kill you if untreated. 

A virus will infect your Sim if your Sim screws up at using the Science Reward
Object, the SimSanto Inc. Bio Station. If your Sim has a low logic skill when
they use the machine, the vial of potion you make could be a virus. The darker
the vial of magic potion, the more dangerous the virus is. Your Sim and other
Sims can contract a virus from the vial and it is more contagious than the 
cold and the flu put together. It will kill your Sim if untreated.

In order to cure a disease, your Sim will need 14 Sim hours of rest. This 
means 14 hours of napping, sleeping, etc. Your Sim could pass out and the 14
hours will still be counted. After 14 hours, not consecutive by the way, your
Sim will be cured. If not, they will die. The second way to treat a disease is
to have a Highly Logical Sim produce an antidote from the Bio Station.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.02] Drowning

Drowning is a death that your can deliberately cause at will. Make your Sim go
swimming and when they are in, remove the ladders. Once hunger or energy drops
down to nothing, they drown. You can't plead with the Grim Reaper unless they
drown near the edge and the Grim Reaper is near the edge. After all, however
faulty your Sims are, they cannot walk on water (they are not belonging to a
highly God like power group) or meditate there even though it is possible. 

Everyone except toddlers and babies can drown.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.03] Electrocution

Electrocution happens when a lowly trained Mechanical Sim tries to repair an
electronic product but don't know how. Even highly trained Mechanical Sims
can get electrocuted like the Repair Man (I saw him get zapped 2 times in a 
row) can get zapped. The electrocution won't kill you, neither will the
singed clothes you are wearing. Electrocution will drop your needs in half,
and if you have 3 or more needs at halfway points, you will die. Teenagers,
Adults and Elders can get electrocuted.

Also, being electrocuted will have a chance to make you lose a skill points as
it isn't good for your brain cells. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.04] Fire

Fire is a common cause of death, as it can happen autonomously or by your
hands indirectly. Fire will start for several reasons.

* Your cooking level is low and your Sim uses a stove or microwave which has
  a good chance of causing fire. I've heard of higher skilled Sims causing 
  fire but it is in the minority.

* You ruin food, which can start a fire

* Use cook food in the oven, microwave, walk away while is it cooking. The
  longer you leave the food in there after the bell has rung, the more chance
  there is of it catching fire. The more smoke there is, the closer it is
  to catching fire.

* You get electrocuted while repairing something, which has a slight chance
  of it catching fire.

* Leaving a flamable or reachable object next to a fire. 

When the fire starts, the object that starts the fire will be on fire. If you
are smart enough to put a smoke detector in your kitchen, the fire department
will always show up before the object is destroyed. Your initial reaction your
Sim will have will be to panic and they will come from all over the house. 
Your Sim can extinguish the fire when you cancel their panic and clicking on 
the burning object and then extinguish. They will put out the fire but slower
than the firefighter. You and the firefighter can shut down the blaze faster
if you two do it together. If the object does not get extinguished, it will
catch fire to other objects around it. 

If the object is made of wood or uses electricity, the fire usually contracts
on that objects faster. If the fire can't find anything to consume, it will 
burn out. The object will be a pile of ashes and reduce the environment score
a lot. If a Sim is next to a blaze, the Sim will catch fire. If they are not
extinguished quickly, they will burn to death. 

If there is a fire in the house and you have a baby / toddler, the adult will
grab the baby and ran out of the house. This happens even if the baby isn't 
in the fire itself. 

Children, teenagers, adults and elders can burn to death and buy and build
mode are disabled so you can't move away objects.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.05] Fly Swarm

This cause of death is so rare, that the chances of it happening is equal to
a tsunami (no offence meant to the tsunami victims). This requires your house
to be very filthy. You need at least 15 plates with flies swarming over it. 
The environment should be zero. Get your Sim to walk over the dirty plates and
on the rare chance of a tsunami, you Sim will get swarmed by flies and get 
eaten alive. Gross.

Teenagers, adults and elders can be eaten alive.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.06] Old Age

When your Sims become elders, they will live for 15 to 25 Sims day before they
will die of old age. This span of days depends on how you treat them. They
higher the Aspiration Meter and mood, the longer they will live. You cannot
bring them back by pleading. Of course, the only Sims that can die are Elders.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.07] Satellite

There is a rare chance that when your Sim stargazes without a telescope or
just watch the clouds, a satellite (decommissioned) will come down from outer
space and splatter your Sim into tiny bits. It is rare but it will happen. As
a bonus of getting your Sim splattered, your can sell the satellite for money.
You can sell the satellite for §1,999 and the tombstone for §150 to further 
insult your Sim's death.

Teenagers, adults and elders can be splattered by the satellite

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.08] Scared to Death

When there is a ghost in the house, there may be the chance that the dead Sim
will perform the Scare option on a living Sim. If that happens, it will be the
same as electrocution, if there is 3 or more needs at halfway they die of
fright as their needs drop into half. This is rare and when it happens, your 
Sim can piss their pants and run, or just plain run. Elders have a higher 
chance of getting scared than other Sims.

Teenagers, adults and elders can get scared to death.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[21.09] Starvation

When a Sim's hunger bar drops to zero, they will stuff their faces with food.
If there is no food, they will starve to death in one hour. Starvation will
kill teenagers, adults and elders but children, toddlers and babies will be
taken away by the social worker if that happens.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[22] Ghosts and Grim Reapers

Ghosts scare the living daylights out of people. The Grim Reaper will take the
souls of those who pass on and turn them into ghosts. Are you ready for what
haunts you below? Are you ready to witness the horrors of the undertaker?
Read on oh brave one.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[22.01] Ghosts

Ghosts will appear when a Sim dies and leaves behind a tombstone. If they die
outside, it will be a tombstone, if they die inside, they will leave an urn.
You can move the tombstone or urn elsewhere but that will make the ghost angry
and pissed. If they die with an Aspiration Meter of Gold or higher, it will
display their Level of Aspiration (example: Future Financer). They living Sims
will mourn the death of the other Sim and it is more of a regular thing to do
within the first few days of death. 

Ghosts will do a variety of things when they materialize from 12:00am to 
7:00am. 

* Turn on stereos, computers and TV's and leave them on for you to see
* Cause flowers to wilt and die
* Make dining chairs float, even if a Sim is on one
* Make the toy xylophone play by itself
* Cause the Incision Precision dummy to float
* Fill a tub with water, might make it dirty so you have to clean it
* Cause teddy bear's head to spin around
* Break a lamp
* Scare a Sim
* Kill a Sim (read above)
 
The ghost has a mood, just like your own Sim except it isn't about its needs, 
it is about its feelings. If the partner of the ghost got married, that would
piss the ghost off. If the Sim starved to death and the fridge is empty, that
would piss the Sim off. If you move out, the ghost will be piss at the new 
Sims as tombstones and urns can't be taken. If the tombstone or urn of the
ghost is kicked or smashed by a child or teenager, that will really make the
ghost mad. 

There are things you can do to halt the ghost of being pissed off. Don't
make the ghost's partner find another partner, don't make your Sims kick it
so block access to it or you could just sell the stupid tombstone or urn. That
will make the ghost go away completely.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[22.02] Ghost Colours

Your ghost will have a colour, depending on how it died.

Disease - Green
Drowning - Blue and will leave puddles
Fire / Burn - Red and smoking. Could start fires as it walks
Flies - Purple
Electrocution - Yellow, will throw sparks, and might even electrocute itself
Old Age - White
Satellite - Orange
Scared to Death - Pink
Starvation - Transparent and will empty your food stores

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[22.03] Pleading with the Grim Reaper

The Grim Reaper is the only way to bring back a Sim who has died from an
unnatural cause (means old age Sims can't be brought back). The Grim Reaper
will come when your Sim dies and everyone is crying over the dead Sim. The
Grim Reaper will hold a clipboard and look through the pages and nod his head.
Then using his scythe, will collect a blue circle, the dead Sim's life. Then
if you plead with the Grim Reaper (click on him and click plead), will Sim
who pleads will go down on it's knees, and begs for the life of the Sim back.

The Grim Reaper will show his two skeletal hands, and show one with the Sim's
life and one empty. To get the right one, your Sim will have to have at least
a combined relationship of 25 (daily plus lifetime) to plead and the maximum
score is 90, so you always have a 10% chance of failing. 

When the hands go behind his back, the Grim Reaper will choose a number in the
background. If the Grim Reaper chooses a number lower than your Relationship
score, then the Grim Reaper will bow his head in shame as he reveals the hand
with the life in it. Your Sims will cheer. If you choose the wrong one, the
Sims will be unhappy and you lose that Sim forever. The Grim Reaper will talk
on his phone and then they will be gone forever.

Seriously, on a mental note, for a guy who loves taking others into his
favourite domain, he is technological advanced. A nice blue cell phone matches
him and pen and paper are like the most basic thing for him. For a guy who 
lives in hell, his a nice guy. Rumor has it that one of the pre made Sims had
a WooHoo and even a baby with this mysterious person. Maybe he is a Sim that
is human and can reproduce. Or maybe not ...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[23] Telephone

The telephone is an important function in this game. Without it, you can't do
a lot of things, including not ordering pizza! This is the most important and
cheapest product in the game and for the variety of functions that you can
pull off, its a blessing. Even those on a tight budget will be able to afford
these technological wonders. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[23.01] Other Sims

A new function. You can receive calls from other Sims. Answer the phone and
if you are the target Sim, you will talk to the other Sim on the other end of
the line. If not, that Sim will ask you if the target Sim is available to talk
with them. Click yes or no. Then you will talk. The longer you talk, the more
is added or deducted from your daily relationship. 

You can also call other Sims. If they are home or you call at the right time,
you will get the chance to invite them over or talk. Invite over means that
you invite them over to talk, socialize, blah, etc. Talk is like answering the
phone, the longer you talk, the more is added to your daily relationship. This
is a great way to keep your friends together.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[23.02] Services

There are still services that you can order over the phone. Where would we be
without these ungrateful NPC's huh?

*******************
*Adoption Services*
*******************

You can adopt children over the phone. When you call the social workers, they
will let you adopt children provided you haven't had a visit from one of them
before. You can choose a baby, toddler or a child. They will come at 10am when
that time comes next.

***********
*Bartender*
***********

The bartender is the one that makes drinks using your bar that you should buy
before hiring the bartender. The bartender will make drinks and serve them
to you can your guests. When the guy runs out, the Sim will make more and 
start serving all over again. The tender will only stop when the shift is over
or until you dismiss him. 

The bartender has a base salary of §10, which you must pay and an hourly 
salary of §15 which is added to the base. So if you hire the person for 5 
hours, you have to pay §85, §10 for base and §75 for the hours.

**************
*Exterminator*
**************

No, he is not a freakin assassin. No he is not the terminator. He is the 
dreaded, wait for it, BUG KILLER! You can stomp the roaches, you can spray 
them with a green fart gas but he gets rid of them faster. Only thing he won't
take care of is your neighbours, no sorry wrong guy, he won't take care of the
dead roaches. You clean it up yourself. (I might have gotten the wrong call
card like Monty Burns but anyway ... )

The exterminator has a base salary of §10 and an hourly salary of §50. Four
hours work will cost you §210, §10 for the base, §200 for the hours.

**********
*Gardener*
**********

The garden is a cheap and useful service. The gardener will come in a blue 
pickup every three days. The gardener will water the plants that need water,
trim the hedges that are overgrowing and pull out those stupid weeds. 

The gardener has a base salary of §5, which is kinda cheap and a hourly salary
of §10. So for 3 hours, you will only pay §35, §5 for the base and §30 for the
hours put in.

******
*Maid*
******

The maid is what the name implies, the maid will clean. They will clean 
showers and benchtops and not to mention baths. They will unclog your toilets,
mop up puddles and piles of dead vermin, pick up and clean dishes, dispose of 
trash and rotten food, get rid of old newspapers, sweep up ash piles, clean 
the high chair, and so on. Only the maid will not take the garbage out of the
trash compactor and place it outside.

The maid has a base salary of §10 and an hourly salary of §15. If you have the
maid for 2 hours, you will pay §40, §10 for base, §30 for the hours.

*******
*Nanny*
*******

The nanny looks after your little baby or toddler when the parent wants it. 
You can call the nanny just for now, which is just at this moment or track
your time slot so when you are gone, you have the nanny to look after your 
little one. She will feed, bathe and change your baby. Because of this fact,
you lose your chance to teach to walk, talk and potty train. The nanny also
cooks, cleans, look after the house when not looking after the baby.

The nanny as a base salary of §10 and an hourly salary of §15. If you have the
nanny for 9 hours, thats §145, §10 for the base, §135 for the hours.

***********
*Repairman*
***********

The repairman is used to fix your broken things. They will fix TV, stereos,
computers, trash compactors, dishwashers, baths, etc. Its funny when they get
zapped by the appliance once, but it is even funnier when they get zapped 
twice. They will not clean after the broken sink, tub, or shower if they leak.

The repairman has a base salary of §10 and an hourly salary of §50. If you
hire the repairman for 24 hours, you have to pay §1210, §10 for the base and
§1200 for the hours.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[23.03] Transportation

Here you can call for a taxi or invite a Sim to come over and go to a 
community lot together. If you call a taxi, you have the option of choosing 
who to go to the community lot. You can choose yourself, for the rest of the
family. If you have a toddler or baby, you have to have someone to look after
the baby. You can get one of your Sims to do it or a nanny. Then when you all
enter the taxi, you go to the neighbourhood screen and choose a community lot.
After visiting that lot, you go to the public phone and call for taxi. Then
you have the option of going home, or visiting another community lot.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[23.04] Work

Calling work is a new option in the Sims 2. You can call work only if you have
a job. You will receive two options when you decide to call work. You can call
in sick or quit job. 

Calling in sick is basically skipping a day of work without using your
vacation days. You cannot always call in sick because that will defeat the 
purpose of going to work. When you call in sick, your Sim will pretend to 
cough on the phone, sneeze, etc. Your boss will fall for it and say if you
want to call in sick or not. Then you decide

Quit job means that your quit your job. You have a final option to quit and if
you quit, you quit for good.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[23.05] Emergency

Emergency means emergency. When you have a fire and for some stupid reason you
don't have a smoke alarm, you can call the fire department to rush to the 
scene and save your life. You do the same thing when there is a burglar and
you don't have a burglar alarm. Don't play with these types of calls however,
you will be fined if you muck around.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[23.06] Delivery

There are two options with you choose delivery. You can call for a pizza or a
grocery delivery.

Pizza delivery costs §40. A person will come with a pizza ready to eat. A 
pizza has several slices and it is a lot more expensive than cooking a set of
lobster which will fill up the hunger bar faster. A pizza has exactly 8 slices
and although it does not recover the hunger bar fast, your Sim eats it fast 
and they will be saved from the brink of stravation. 

Grocery delivery means you call for a delivery of food supplies. Depending on
how empty or full your fridges are, the price will be calculated. There is a 
§50 delivery fee plus a charge on the groceries. A block is about §6-8 and
the more fridges there are, the more a block will cost. To order supplies, 
click on the arrows above the supply chart and then order. A block one
increment in the bar. That means, a block is that amount of groceries 
delivered when you click up once. 

Both of these deliveries will take time so be patient with the delivery guy.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24] Computer

The computer in this game is one of the most important things you can get. 
This is a must have item. Thats because of the massive benefits that you will
be able to reap. Also, you can keep your life intact and fun in place. Again,
a must have item. Its cool, small, compact and keeps you in touch with the 
social world, even if you have been living under a massive stone rock. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24.01] Chat With ...

Chatting with someone is like MSN for us humans. You can see who is online
and talk to them like you were using the telephone. Only problem is that
you're not. It improves relationship points easy without losing a lot of 
motives as well. Its fast and you can have many people logged onto the 
internet and any one time. It is however, a slow improver of those pesky
relationship points. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24.02] Send E-Mail

Send E-Mail and checking for E-Mail is the same inversed. Sending a E-Mail 
to someone will increase your relationship with that person. They will 
instantly reply, and when you check your E-Mail, you get a e-mail for every
e-mail sent from you since you last checked your E-Mail. And everytime you
read a E-Mail, you get a big social bar boost.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24.03] Find a Job

^^^. Explains for itself. You can look through five jobs using the computer.
This is more than the newspaper and it can be above level 1. This is 
something the newspaper can't do. More jobs, better level. What a life.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24.04] Order Groceries

Like using the telephone. Ordering groceries is getting a person to fill up 
your fridge for a §50 delivery fee and a grocery bill. Thats about it and
you can do it from your own computer.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24.05] Play

Play means to play computer games or video games for you oldies, I mean 
elders, I mean you know what I'm talking about. When you start, you will be
able to play only SSX3, a snowboarding game. But because Maxis is only about
shameless self promotion / advertising, you can buy SimCity 4 Rush Hour and
The Sims Bustin' Out at community lots so you can play at home. Then you
can play the Urbz, Sims in the City (SITC) when you download that item off the
exchange when you register. It improves your fun.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24.06] Find Own Place

Finding your own place is trying to move out of the house you live in. Not
a good idea but if you want to have a big family with is more than eight, then
moving out is the only way to expand it larger.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[24.07] Write Own Novel

Writing a novel is hard for several reasons. First of all, you cannot stop
until your Sim is red in a motive unless you stop it yourself. You do not have
a bar above your head to tell you when you are finished. You do not earn a
whole heap of money from royalities. It takes 3 Sim days to finish. Skip this
I say.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25] Newspaper

The newspaper is the more primative computer. Sure it might not be shiny and
high tech, but it beats doing nothing. At 7 am, a paper boy or girl will 
deliever a newspaper for you and if the previous day's newspaper is still
there, it will turn old by the new one. The newspaper is the most basic way
to keep in touch the large SimUniverse.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25.01] Bring In

Newspaper getting cold? Bring it into the house for some warmth. You can read
it anytime and lazy sims don't have to walk outside in the freezing cold to
pick up a paper when a more active sim can do it for them.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25.02] Read

Serious Sims will love this action. They will get some fun out of this. They
hate sports so why not read a paper? More fun than they could ever imagine.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25.03] Find Own Place

Finding your own place is trying to move out of the house you live in. Not
a good idea but if you want to have a big family with is more than eight, then
moving out is the only way to expand it larger.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25.04] Recycle

You a radical greenie? Then recycle your paper by throwing it into the 
garbage pile. Save a couple of trees while your at it. Waste not, want not. 
Thats the way the saying goes.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25.05] Do Crossword

Doing the Crossword has some benefits after all. You can get some logic points
out of this. However, once you do it, you can't do it again. I mean, who 
would?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25.06] Make Airplane

Make a paper airplane and throw it at people. Increases your fun by a bit but
it is more than nothing altogether. Once you make the airplane, you can't 
possibly turn it back.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[25.07] Find a Job

^^^. Explains for itself. You can look through three jobs using the newspaper.
This is the most basic job finder you get and it is for level 1 jobs. This is 
something the computer can't do often. Start from scratch. All jobs are at
Level one, regardless.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[26] Fridge

What will you do without the fridge? You will starve of course. Read below for
the options that you will get from this almighty product. The fridge is the 
only way that you can get food to eat. Sure you might have an oven, a micro-
wave or blender, but without any food to chop up, you can only eat thin air.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[26.01] Snacks 

Feeling the munchies? Well have a snack. Ranging from cookies to juice to 
chips, you can have anything from this fridge. Relieves hunger slightly and 
can save you from death.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[26.02] The Three Main Meals

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The menu that you can cook vary on two things 
mainly. Your cooking level and your timing. Breakfast starts early in the
morning at 2am and ends at 10:30 am. Lunch starts after breakfast and ends 
at 4:30pm in the afternoon. Dinner starts from then till breakfast. Having 
food will only give you one portion which is for yourself. If you serve your 
food, you will give out 8 portions of food and you will serve food on the 
table depending on the size and capacity of the table and the amount of 
people that are able to eat the meal at the time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[26.03] Dessert

Need a sugar hit? Then serve dessert. Sure to kick start your hyperactive mode
and full of sugary goodness. When you serve dessert, you have to serve it, you
cannot have a single portion at one time. It's like baking a large cake for
yourself. Is that sad or what?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[26.04] Grill

Got a BBQ thats getting rusty? Then start to grill some food. Sure it is not
cheap at times, but its a homemade style of fast food. Hamburgers and hot dogs
with mustard, What more could you want? And by BBQ, I mean the BBQ Grill, not
the food. Food don't contain larges amounts of iron and therefore, cannot be
exposed to oxygen and in turn, create rust. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[26.05] Bottles

Got a hungry baby? Well feed it a bottle. Sure to relieve the hunger of the 
tiny tot and to provide entertainment if you juggle with them and don't spill 
them or anything. Full of milky goodness and sure to keep your tiny tot going
for hours and hours at a time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[26.06] Supplies

Running out of food? Then check your supplies often and buy more when the
need for it arises. Sure it might take a while to check the capacities of the
fridges, but it better than paying a more ultimate price, death.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[27] Invite Headmaster

Inviting the Headmaster is the only way to get your child Sims into a rich
Private School. To get the Headmaster, call him via the telephone. He will
come at about 5pm (Sim Time). He will knock on the door and before you answer
the door, make sure you are ready and prepared for the most difficult person
you will ever face in your life.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[27.01] Overview

When the Headmaster arrives, you have 6 real life minutes to get the perfect
score of 90. You have 3 ways to impress in by. This is Food (how good your
food is), Tour (how good your house is) and Schmooze (how lively your talking
is). 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[27.02] Food

This is how good your food is. He only eats one meal so make it count. The 
food score is scored in many ways. The more skill points needed to cook the
food, the more it will score. Lobster will outrank all the other foods as it
is a skill 10 food unlike salmon with is a skill 6 food. What you use to make
it is also important. The most expensive fridge will score more than a cheaper
fridge. A better oven will score more than a cheap oven. Use a food processor
will score more than not using one. 

What I did was cook salmon with the most expensive equipment. I scored 44 in
food when the total score was 90. To get the Headmaster to eat the food, get a
Sim to click on him, and under entertain, click "Call for Dinner"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[27.03] Tour

This section will help you on how good you're house is. The better the
environment in each room, the more you will score. If a room is loaded with
expensive stuff, then you will get a cheer from the old man. You get about 10
points for the cheer. So a good simple explanation is that the environment 
score for your controllable Sim will give you a guess of your score. The 
higher the Environment, the more points you will load. There is a maximum of 
45 points however and you cannot show more than 5 rooms. 

What I did was to get him into my dining room, I got 10 points. In the kitchen
I got 15 points (It was loaded with the best equipment) and my bathroom scored
another 15 points (I don't know how). To give the man a tour, you have to go
click on him, go to entertain and click on "Give Tour."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[27.04] Schmooze

Schmooze is basically the score for your social talk. If you share a common 
interest with the old fart, you get a better score as only the options chat 
and brag are available. If you brag, you have a chance of failing, then 
because you bragged to make yourself look good, you will lose points so chat
is the only way to go.

What I did involved chatting with two different Sims, only did better than the
other. Because so little interactions were available, I scored 23, which is
okay. To talk, click on the headmaster and click "Schmooze". You can also
schmooze around the dinner table while you feed him. Call him to dinner with
the whole family for more points. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[27.05] Total Score

Total score is your 3 scores altogether. The bottom of the little box on your
top right hand corner is a box with your scores and a total score out of 90.
Get a score of 90+ in under 6 real minutes to get your Sims into a private 
school. I scored 107 in 2 and a half minutes (no seriously, I got a 107).
If you achieve the mark, your Sims are in the school and they have to wear a
uniform to school but the bus and hours are the same.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[27.06] Secret Points

There are secret ways to get more points. If you get the Headmaster into a hot
tub, the Aspiration Love Tub being the best, you score 10 extra points.

If you make him drink coffee, you will also score another 10 points. The only
way you can do that is to set the example with other adults drinking coffee
after dinner. Monkey see, Monkey do. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[28] Party

Having a party is a fun thing to do. Invite some friends over and share some
grog. Make friends and lovers at the same place while others try to get 
stoned but they can't. There are several party types. You can have a House 
party, a birthday party and a wedding party. Only the House party can be 
used normally.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[28.01] Party Level

There are several levels on your party. The higher the level, the better the
party

1st: Roof Raiser
2nd: Good Time
3rd: Not Bad
4th: Snoozer
5th: Real Dull
6th: Disaster

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[28.02] How To Get a Good Party

To get a good party, invite guests who are friendly to the Sim that is 
inviting people to the party. This increases the success rate of that certain
Sim turning up for the event. Any guest that is already in the house and at
the house in the time of the party will also become a guest of the party. Also
any friends that you invite over manually can also have a guest of party 
honour. Having guests that are evil are a thorn in your backside and your Sims
backside so I suggest that you kick them out with all your might.

If the Sims that you are asking are absent or at work, they will be unable to
come to your good or bad party. Sure it may not be nice but thats the way it 
is. Maybe Maxis thought skipping work for a party is not the best of all 
ideas. NPC's should come unless they make some cock-and-bull excuse that they
are watching their favourite soup for cleaning their llamas.

The Party Score is based on how many positive reactions are being made. The
more green pluses, the better, the more red crosses, the worse your party
will be. Double + reactions are the best ways to make a good party and I've
had parties where my two house Sims had kisses everywhere and it was a Roof
Raiser. As long as you don't try to kill any Sims, you'll be fine and I will
assure you on that. If the guests are friends of one another, this will make
the party a success alone. Having two guests that are complete enemies and 
jerks to one another is not the icing on the cake.

The better your computer, the more guests your computer can handle without
any major drama. There is a cheat that can allow you to have more guests but
then it can make your computer crash and that is not good. Don't make your
party too close to midnight as no one will come and the coppers will come to
break up the fun. 

Make sure you provide some food for your guests, you don't want them to be
leaving mid way through the party. Have some bathrooms ready and be ready
to clean the mess that comes along with them. Don't feed your guests rotten
food, use your brain, when you go to someone else's birthday bash, you don't 
want to have constipation the next day because their parents gave you rotten
food do you?

If you have parties on a regular basis, have a mechanical Sim in the house-
hold as things can get broken and stuffed up very quickly. Toilets and 
showers are annoying as they will leak water and lower the environment bar in
that room a lot so I suggest you get ready. 

Have TVs and stereos turned on, have your arcades ready to rumble. Get your
computers ready and your washrooms in perfect mint condition. A party lasts
for 6 hours so try not to have a long night. Have all your Sims attend the
party and don't be afraid to order some pizzas to fill up those munchies. 

A House party is set up via the phone. A marriage ceremony can be done only
when some people in the household are about to get married. A birthday 
party is only able to be held when a Sim is about to be advanced to the next
stage in their live. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[29] Build a House

Wow, how to build a house. This section will guide you through the areas
that Maxis doesn't pay attention to. So PAY ATTENTION. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[29.01] Decks and Foundations

To build a deck, all you have to do is to make a floor with a wall around the
end. When you finished, go to build mode and you will see a square outside 
the wall. Expand outside the wall and build a wall or fence around it. Build 
a door in the wall to lead to the outside area. Then you have a deck!

A foundation is when you have a base to support the upper and below areas of
the house. Any wall will be suffice to this job and then you can cover the
area above and below with carpet.

As Jessica Dahl puts it:

"Building a balcony is as easy as putting pillars down at regular intervals 
 and filling those squares with floor tiles... you can then remove the pillars
 you wish. A porch can be built by extending the foundation beyond the walls
 of your house.  Lay down some wood or stone and there you go."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[29.02] Basements

Basements are easy to build if you have the time and effort to build one.

1) Build a foundation on the floor

2) Remove the centre of the floor, and leave the sides alone

3) Go to the lowest floor possible. Go to build mode a plaster the wall of
   the foundation with a baseboard.

4) Use the terrain tool to lower the ground and be at the level of the 
   baseboard to build a basement.

5) Use the terrain tool to flatten the ground at the position below the 
   basebord.

6) Use a floor covering to cover the grass

7) Go back to the first floor and place a tile in front of the place where
   you want a staircase to the basement. This is the landing.

8) Go to the stairs area and place the stairs next to the edge of the tile.
   Angle the stairs to suit your need. This will connect to the bottom floor.

9) Carpet the rest of the house and then your Sims can access the underground.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[31] Interests

Everyone Sims has an interest in something, sure some Sims might like Politics
but might hate Money, its random. Sims who have the same interests will get
along like a breeze if they Share Interests with each other. This makes 
their conversations last longer than normal. Also, you can get more relation-
ship points out of this. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[30.01] Your Sims Interests

Your Sims have 18 Interests available to them. They might like one more than
the other, it's not my problem. The interests are:

Animals
Crime
Culture
Entertainment
Environment
Fashion
Food
Health
Money
Paranormal
Politics
Sci-Fi
School
Sports
Toys 
Travel
Weather 
Work

These interests can change your Sims Aspirations. For example, a Sim with a 
10 bar food interest will have a higher chance of getting a Food Aspiration
than a Sim who has no interest in it. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[30.02] Changing the Interests

The only way to change your Sims' Interests is to read magazines that can be
brought from the community lots. They all cost §15 each and can be sold in
buy mode for §10 each.

The Magazines are

***************
*Beyond Belief*
***************

"Are there aliens living in your neighborhood? Do the dead still walk the 
earth? Can knowing any of this help you live longer? Ponder the imponderable
and indulge you paranoia with Beyond Belief."

Changes Interest in Health, Paranormal and Sci-Fi

*****************
*Highbrow Review*
*****************

"Highbrow Review is the perfect blend: a dose of culture, a dash of 
environmentalism, and just a pinch of hard-hitting political analysis."

Alaska? How to make a baked Alaska? You've living the Mode: Live life."

Magazine. but remember - even if you win the race, you're still a rat!"

wildest creatures, and coolest school projects. No matter how old you are,
you're sure to love Young Sim magazine."

Changes Interest in Animals, School and Toys

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[31] Memories

Memories are things that your Sims will do throughout their life. This will
be good things like marriage to fires, which is a bad thing. A memory cannot
be erased, just like if you burnt yourself, it is something that you will not
forget. Memories will refresh your memory about the good, old times. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[32] Helpful NPC's 

These NPCs will only appear when you either have a very low social bar or
your aspiration meter is extremely low. This is only because you suck and 
cannot lets your Sims go to heaven without living through hell. These 
imaginary people will come and whisk your Sim to somewhere and fix them up,
no just kidding!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[32.01] Social Bunny

The Social Bunny is an invisible bunny that only appears to the Sim with the
full red social bar. You can do anything to this bunny, you can kiss it, hug
it, slap it, anything you want with it. The social bunny will leave when your
social bar is back to the halfway mark.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[32.02] Therapist

The therapist is the only cure to your Sim when he or see has a aspiration
meter that is below double red. This therapist will come from the sky and talk
to your Sim. Eventually, your Sim will go back to the single red bar and you
will be able to control the Sim again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[33] Miscellaneous Stuff

This section is for stuff that doesn't have a section, that is why it is 
called miscellaneous stuff. If you have a topic that is not in this section 
or in the guide and you feel the need to make sure that it is in here, then
send it in, it's no good to talk to yourself if no one can here you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[33.01] Bills

This thing really pisses me off. The bill is not calculated by the water, gas
and electricity you use, it is the amount of objects you have and their values
that they possess. The more you have, the more valuable they are, the more
you have to pay. If you don't pay your bills, the bills will grow from a 
white colour to a yellow colour, then to an orange colour and then red. When
it turns red, you will receive a warning that you should pay your bills. If
you don't, the repo man will come and take items that are worth the amount of
the bills you own.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[33.02] Free Will

Free Will is an option allowing you to let the Sims do what they want to do
unless you force them to do what you want. They will take care of their needs
and others but they can be all over the place. Without Free Will, you are the
master and they only take orders from you. There has been a massive debate 
about free will so what I think is that you should leave it on. But then 
again, that's my opinion.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[33.03] Vacation Days

Vacation Days are aquired by going to work for several days / weeks. When you
get a vacation day, what it means that you can skip a day of work and still
get paid for it. You do not get access to chance cards and promotions or any
other work related things. Use it only when you forget that your Sim has to
go to work and they are in such a bad mood that they miss the carpool. If you
waste it, even if you are a Business Tycoon, you can still get fired. That is
not possible if you have a vacation day up your sleeve. You will have to stay
in that same career for a week for so to earn a vacation day. Perfect when you
can't get a sickie anymore.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[33.04] Fat and Thin

A new addition to the Sims 2 are the fat and the thin. You can control the
size of your Sim whether they will be a fat tub of lard or as skinny as a 
bowling pin (no offense meant). The size of your Sim can be control if you as
God look after it properly. To see your Sims weight / blubber, on the mood 
thingy, there are 5 buttons / options. The fourth one should be it (its above
the careers and aspiration rewards buttion). Its the one with the head. One of
the options will a guy doing a jumping jack. This is the one that will show if
you Sim is fat or thin. There are two influencing factors that contribute to
your Sim's weight.

Food
Your Sim can have their weight like what it is forever if you make sure that
their hunger bar does not go over full capacity when their are eating. This is
because when you eat food, for the excess energy, it is turned into fat which
happens in the Sims 2. For every gulp of food over the Hunger Bar, your Sim 
will transfer the food into fat which will drop the fitness bar. Before their
meal is complete, cancel their eating action. You have to be careful as the 
better meals like Lobster when cooked by a master will recover most and 
quickly so be careful on the mouse. So now, eating a meal consisting of a 
nice entree, like a hamburger, followed up with some grilled ribs and some
salmon, added with some lobster followed up with a baked alaska, it will now
have some detrimental effect on the Sim. I mean, you can't just keep eating
and eating and not get fat.

Exercise
Of course, exercise the the only possible way to get your fat little sim thin
again. Walking, running and skipping are excluded because there will not be 
the need to get fit if you get fit by walking. Everything that pumps up your
body skill will boost fitness so that is an added incentive to exercise. The
personality of the Sim does not effect the fitness of the Sim but active Sims
seem to enjoy the exercise unlike their lazy counterpart. Yoga is another way
to get rid of that excess flab that no one wants to see.

Exercising on a machine or a punching bag will make a Sim fat to thin in about
10 hours. However, this is the fastest way to rid the hygiene bar so be 
careful on that note.

Yoga can make make a fat to thin sim in just about 20 hours. This is a better
alternative because you seem to slow the decrease of your motives where as 
on the machine, you speed up the decrease. Yoga is handy as you only need 3
points of body to perform it and you can do it anywhere.

Swimming in a pool can make fat the thin in about 24 hours. This is in-
effective as swimming decreases energy like a chainsaw revving up so swimming
into shape is not a good idea.

The worst offender of fitness is the obstacle course. I thought that working 
in the military forces will encourage you to get thin, however, it encourages
the idea that time exercising is more important than fitness. However, the 
rate of motive decrease is slower than most activities and body skill seems 
faster to raise so you can gain more points when trying to get fit on this
hunk of junk.

[34] Q&A

This section requires people to mail in questions that have to be answered. 
Questions will be placed in this section. Don't be afraid to e-mail me, I 
don't bite (not very hard anyway) so send them in. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[34.01] Questions

Q. How can I get a faster load time?

A. The bigger the house is, the larger the loading time of the house / lot. 
The more Sims that are in there, the longer it will take to load. The more
objects, that are in there, the longer it will load. The more custom items
that are in there, the longer it will take to load. All these factors 
contribute to how the game loads and the loading time of it. Ram will decrease
the time (see below) and defragmenting your computer will help. Make sure that
you are not trying to load a 8 family, 5 storey house with 50 billion objects
in it because I'm sure that it will take forever. It is known that if you get
a gigabyte of ram, it is better. If you only have 512mb ram, you can go buy
a stick of ram for about I don't know, §50. Dunno, anyhoo, get that stick of
ram, place it on the motherboard and voila. But remember the fact that you can
have 1 stick, 2 sticks or 4 sticks of ram, but 3 sticks of ram seem to annoy 
the computer. 

Q. How can my game run faster?

A. The game can run faster if you install some more ram. Ram is the only way
that the game actually runs faster. Your processor speed won't do much and 
disk defragmenting your computer will only make sure it runs smoother and
loads a tad quicker.

Q. Where can I find the Disk Defragmenter?

A. If you are using Windows, go to start, programs, accessories and then to
system tools. If you are using something that the previous does not use, then
go to my computer, properities of C:\ drive (or hard drive) and in tools 
section. It should be the middle tool.

Q. I read your walkthrough to the Sims 2 game and what I was looking for was 
not in it so i was wondering if you could help me out. I am having trouble 
with keeping my people's lives together. In the first Sims game I noticed 
that if you used the cheat code moveObjects on and deleted a sim and then 
clicked on their picture that they would come back and their bars (such as 
fun, energy, hunger, bladder,and etc) would all be full. I was wondering if 
there was a way to do the same thing in the Sims 2. I have tried doing that
but when you delete the sims you cannot bring them back unless you click the
undo button but even when they do come back their bars are still the same as
before.

A. Simple answer, you can't. Maxis destroy that bug / glitch because it just
ruined the point of getting to the top of the career if you go to work in a 
great cheated mood. I think it is a good idea as people can't really cheat
anymore with that aspect. If all your Sims are failing with really bad moods,
which is a problem I assume that you are having, then your can't. How about 
trying to get a better person to be in charge and make sure all their needs 
are set. I mean, I hope you are not attempting to kill them or anything. Whats
the point of playing of you are only going to cheat? You might as well get 10 
more games if you are going to cheat in them to get your means of 
entertainment. The cheats such as motherlode is enough to buy massive, great 
motive building tools like a wide screen television, double beds, toilets and 
bathes so their is really is no point in doing that. Many people have lost 
their Sims because they tried to do that tactic and lost them forever. That 
is how the game mechanics work and if you are not happy with it, complain to 
Maxis, the creators of the game. Remember the fact that if you actually decide
to delete someone in real life (as in remove off the face of the earth), there
is no being them back (unless you play University that can resurrect slain 
Sims but not deleted Sims)

Q. Whats the deal over lawn gnomes?

A. Lawn gnomes rock! In the Sims 1, you could make and sell lawn gnomes for
a living. Of course, they have made an imfamous return to the Sims 2 as a
magical creature that can be played with if your Sim has enough playful points
to do so. Of course, if an angry person came along and took your dearly 
beloved lawn gnome, your Sim will take the magical journey to get the gnome
back and punish the evildoer who took it in the first place. 

Q. Where can I find this game?

A. Go to www.ebgames.com and buy it there. Or your local game shop. They 
should have this game if it is cool enough. It should be fairly cheaper than
the original price as it has been out for about a few months. I think that it
should not be over §50 to §60 US at the moment. It should be about double of 
the price of the University Expansion Pack.

Q. What is meant by chucking a sickie?

A. When you chuck a sickie, you basically say to your boss on the telephone, 
that you can't come to work today because you are feeling *cough*sick*cough*.
However, if you do this too often to skip work altogether, you will get a 
boss that won't trust you and you will be in deep dog do. 

Q. Why can't I build?

A. You have the pirated copy of the game. Get the real game. Next one to ask
me that question will be handed over to the FBI or the CIA of pirated games
and raid your house for pirated software and you will burn in the depths of
the underworld. Buy the real game, not a copy, not a daemon virtual cd copy,
not anything except the real game. I had the cracked copy while I had the real
copy and trust me, you will want the real copy, it is needed in the University
expansion pack anyway. 

Q. Why is Maxis obsessed with Llamas?

A. Well Llamas are super cool. It started in SimCity 2 with the Llamas making
their major debut on screen. There was a structure reward with the name Llama
in it, Llamas were the only animals that were actually named in the zoo, the
newspaper will take about the Llamas being killed in an air crash and there 
was even a speed called Llama which was 2/5 in speed. Llamas are big, furry
creatures that walk around and eat grass. They used to love South America
but the company of Maxis decided that this lonely animals needed some more
attention and placed it in their games. If you from now on hear the animal
called a Llama in the gaming community, chances are that they are talking 
about a Maxis game. 

Q. How do I get an Aspiration Change?

A. Simple answer, you cannot. If you could, (you can in University) you can
acquire so many different want that it would not be fair. You can then change
aspirations fully in Nightlife. The reason for the change is that you access
new aspirations. It was not included in the base game since there wasn't
much to change with anyway, and the change in Nightlife is based on the fact
that there are 7 Aspirations to change into, instead of 5. Also, the inclusion
of Lifetime Wants in University also gives the fact that some Wants are harder
to achieve than others and as such, a change will reset the want. There are
no such wants in the base game, therefore, there is no warrant for a change.
Also, you couldn't get the Grilled Cheese Aspiration in the base game :)

Q. How do I get my Sims to wear their clothes they brought from a community 
lot?

A. You have to have a wardrobe. Click on the plan outfit and then click on the
type of clothing that your Sim brought. Change the outfit till you get the one
you brought from the community lot. 

Q. What is a hack?

A. A hack is simply something that has been changed within the game. Hacks 
range from Career Hacks which are "new" careers created by people who entered
the games system and "changed" some stuff. Other hacks range from recolours
and mods like the Slow Aspiration Meter which reduces the speed which the 
Aspiration Meter Decreases. Some hacks are painless like the Maxis creations
but others can be harmful like the Hacked Objects which when deleted can cause
some houses not to load. 

Q. How can I detect a hack?

A. Some really smart people have created a hack scanner which you place in 
your Downloads folder (My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads) and it will
scan the folder of all of the package files in there. It will check what every
one of the packages are. You can download the hack scanner from 
http://djssims.deepmyth.com.

Q. How come when I maximize the Sims 2, I only see a blue screen. What 
happened to the game?

A. You have to wait. The Sims 2 game file uses quite a lot of memory and when
you minimize the game, the memory use is discharged. To get the game running 
again, all the memory previously used must be redirected back to the game. 
This effect is not an instant one so you have to wait. Depending on what you
were on before, the game will take time to load. The bigger the house, the
longer time needed to load. The smaller the house, the faster to load. The
neighbourhood screen won't take that long to load unlike your Sim's house. 

Q. How do I potty train?

A. Dear me, you must really suck. To potty train a baby, you have to buy the
toilet for the toddler, and click on it to potty train it. Some with the crib,
click on it to get the baby in it. Same with the changing station, click on it
to change a diaper, so forth. The baby must have some pee in their bladder 
before they can pee it all out you know. 

Q. How do I woohoo in public?

A. Come on, you've got access to the boards and other FAQs and yet you still
don't know how. To woohoo in public, try on clothes in a community lot, when 
you go into the changing booth, click on the lucky Sim and click ask to join,
and the Sim will come and before entering, will look around. When they woohoo,
the store attendants that are in the building floor as them will watch and
cheer. I once has over 10 attendants rush over! 

Q. What's your serial key?

A. GoBu-YThe-Game-UAss-Hole. Get the game and pay for it. You don't have a
serial key, BUY THE GAME. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET MINE. OVER MY GODDAM BODY
YOU WILL HAVE TO PASS TO GET IT.  

Q. How can I change Aspirations?

A. Once you choose an aspiration, it stays forever. FOREVER DUDE! 

Q. Does it rain?

A. It should but Maxis is probably leaving the weather for an Expansion Pack
to make more money. Cheap bastards. Anyway, just wait for a few more expansion
packs and the rain will come. It takes a lot of animation or rain, hail and 
shine to come down and probably a weather channel for details for torommow's
forecast. Plus all those items that will be needed to keep your Sims dry, plus
the effect of the rain coming down to your neighbourhood, your Sims getting 
wet, etc ,etc. They might as well make a clothes line next. 

Q. What are the colours around the Sims when they are peeing, bathing?

A. You pervert! It is a blur of the colours around it to stop you from seeing
more than you need to see. It's CENSORED FOR A REASON YOU SICK MINDED MOTHER
******! Why, do you feel alone in this world and can't find some real *ahem*
you have to rely on cheap animiated *censored* material?

[36] Bug and Glitches

This section is devoted to the screw ups and the problems with the Sims 2. 
This is not a guide devoted to piss off and annoy Maxis and how crap this
game is. A guide this size would not be this big if you have such a small
section on this. I mean, every game has a flaw in it. Nothing in this world 
is perfect so how will the Sims 2 be prefect. It's not a perfect world people.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[36.01] Bugs

Cooking Bug
When you reach the prestige of a cooking skill of 10 which is the max, 
sometimes you won't be able to cook anything beyond the first level. This is 
a bug that happened to my teenage Sim in the game.

Kidnapper!?!
When visitors come to your house and you have a baby or a toddler, sometimes
the visitor will play with your baby, hold it and then take it away when the
visitor goes home. When they return, you'll never see the baby again. 

Lazy Maid
When you hire a maid in your house, she will clean everything except take out
the trash from the trash compactor. What a lazy maid!

Art Bug
When you have your Sims do a still life painting, you have to take a snapshot
of the spot you want to have painted. Take a snapshot and minimize the Sims 2.
Find the snapshot in the My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Storytelling. Open
the snapshot.bmp with a picture editing program. Now screw up the file till
you like it but keep the resolution the same. Overwrite the old file with your
file and return to the Sims 2. Turn off pause and your Sim will paint what you
what created before. 

Invisible Sim
When you reach the top of a career that bring you home in a helicopter, your
Sim might bring a friend. That friend will be invisible and you don't know
where it is. You can fix it by getting another guest and say goodbye to all
or you could just kill it. 

Meditate 
When you have a Sim in the toilet and meditates away, no one will use that 
toilet because they believe that the Sim is still in there.

Grow Old Fast!
When my teenager grew into an adult, I saved the game, went to the house of 
his girlfriend, and had her get married to him at her house. I had saved
the game before his "age meter" went down to zero again, and when 6pm hit,
he turned into an elder. (Fortunately, he and his young bride were still 
able to have children.) 

Serve the Ghost
If you serve dinner/breakfast between 8 pm and 6 am, the Sim will put out a 
plate for each ghost which is active at the time. The ghost can't (or at 
least didn't) eat the food, but was still served. 

Not in Use Couch
A couch sometimes can't be moved. It can't be selected and it can't be sold
because something is going to use it but it won't. To fix this, start by
moving out then moving back in. Or use the move objects on cheat. 

Unable Want
Teenagers have a want to write a novel. This is not able to happen due to the
age restrictions. I mean, how many teens right novels? None. The patch will
fix this up though.
