The Bloomer Legacy

August 14, 2016 The Plumbob 8 Comments

Welcome to the home of the Bloomer family!

For the most part, this story is based on the #BuildNewcrest legacy – a challenge created by Simply Vanilla Sims, you can find the full set of rules here. I do however see the rules more as guidelines, and will stray from or break most of them throughout the course of the story.

Come along as the Bloomers build Newcrest from scratch; as in real life, there are ups and downs in this story and I may not always play by the rules, but hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride! The story index for all generations can be found below.

Ready to plunge into the story? Start from the beginning!

Do you find long legacies intimidating? I would recommend reading the full story for maximum enjoyment, but if the number of chapters scares you, two good starting points further down the line may be Generation 3 or Generation 7.
