First things first, it’s Winterfest and Noelle looks like she’s carrying twins! She looks absolutely miserable, but…this is only the first of who knows how many pregnancies.
Nia stepped in to make the dinner, although it doesn’t look that impressive. I’m not great at managing the holidays in my games so the table isn’t set at all, but she looks to be spending some quality time with Loario.
I’m thinking that at this point, I should probably rip out the kitchen and replace it with a nice new shiny one, because practically everything in this kitchen is battered and bad.
Nia also had a cuddle with Ruby in her pajamas, which was a really cute shot.
Then it was time for Noelle and Loario to decorate the tree!
This is such a cute shot – Noelle with her baby bump and a smile while Loario hangs an ornament? Oh my goodness! Definitely one of my favourite Winterfest pics so far in this legacy.
Plus, once they were done, the tree looked really cute!
Father Winter definitely seemed to agree when he came to visit!
Everyone got a present, and Loario got the best one of all…a Motion Gaming Mat!
And then, in a puff of smoke, Father Winter was gone! I didn’t even have to sell all the gifts this time around, which was fortunate.
Everyone had a really good Winterfest as a result, and I think next time around I’ll be able to put even more effort into it! It’s a really good holiday and I had a lot of fun playing through it.
Plus, once we packed up all of the Winterfest items, we had room for the Gaming Mat! Loario’s been mostly the one to use it, and I also decided to splash out on some nice pink wallpaper to replace the blue from before.
He also found a Potion of Curse Cleansing on Plopsy, and Noelle was able to drink it and finally be free of the curse she received back in her teens! Yay! No more weird magic!
She…then immediately went into labour.
I decided that this time around, I was going to name everyone in this generation after different characters in Lore Olympus (one of my favourite Webtoons) so meet Minthe Whitmore, our first baby of the next generation!
She’s absolutely adorable, and I had Noelle dress her in the little ice cream cone onesie.
Her dad adores her too! I think Loario is going to be a really devoted dad.
Unfortunately, that’s just as well, because I got the notification I’ve been dreading for some time while I was playing. Nia is on her last days, and while she’s lasted longer than I could ever have hoped for, she’s not got long left and will pass on soon.
I remember how hard my first Legacy Founder death hit me when I first played this challenge, and I don’t think it’s going to be any easier this time. I’m really attached to Nia and I really don’t want to lose her, but I think it’s only right that she should paint Noelle’s portrait to add to the portrait room before she passes.
I’m going to miss her so much, and I’ll be nervous for the next few times I play, but ultimately this is how the game works.
Until next time, readers!
