Just one little post to tell anyone reading that Kayton Times has undergone some changes and additions!

First, there are two new pages at the top of the site, called Histories and Lots. Histories tells of how the current residents who weren’t born in story got to Kayton. So far there is Carmen, Jeff, Gretchen, Penny, and Ben, and there will be more in the future. I’m trying to do some of the more central characters first.

The other pages, lots, is very self explanitory and is basically a picture of all the community lots, broken down by town. Most of them have already been seen in blog, and there are some links to lot tours.

The other change is that the new Govenor has been added to the Public Pages.

Another one is that I’ve finally updated the White Pages!

 Every resident now has their age, life stage, aspiration, life time want, zodiac sign, and job listed under their family picture, which have nearly all been updated for round 2.

thanks for reading!


Legal Matters…

Continuing the one year celebrations…

I’ve always wanted Kayton to have an elite, if you know what I mean. The high class, rich, influential citizens that everyone knew. But my neighborhood was so new that no one reached that level besides the Engebretsen family. I had resigned myself to wait until the neighborhood aged and I had some people to pick from.

But… after reading this post at New Buckington, I’ve decided I just have to have them!

And so… introducing the Brandsetter family!

The man in the middle is Kayton’s new governor Bradley Edward Brandsetter. He’s forty seven years old, popularity/fortune, and his lifetime want was (obviously) to become mayor, and now Bradley’s tackling the governor position. He’s a people pleaser, first and foremost, and is very friendly and personable. He’s cheesey, but genuine.

His wife Genevieve is who I’m most intrigued about. She’s forty and  fortune/knowledge. But what intrigues me most is her lifetime want is also to reach the top of the political career. Couple that with ambitious aspirations and one nice point and I think we have a conniving, scheming wife on our hands! I’ve already got some ideas.

The two of them together are pretty unusual too. Yeah, she likes him alright, but she’s not one to get sidetracked. She was his second wife, married for his reputation, and she knows it.

Their son Jean is ten and studying at Kayton Elementary in Kayton Square. He’s his mother’s son, and parrots her beliefs and behaviors. He’s quite a stuck up little brat.

At least, these are the characters I’m thinking of them to be! So we’ll see what happens. They’re going to get their own little intro post and then they’ll be added to the lineup sometime in this round.

Here’s the mayoral mansion, in Maple City next to Kayton Hall. I downloaded it ages ago from MTS2.

One little fluff post left, and then it’s back to real story updates!!!

Cheyenne Tower

So it’s officially been one year since I started this story!!! I’m so excited and happy and it’s been so much fun, thank you all for continuing through the weird posting schedule I’ve found myself in – no more, haha!

So since we’re continuing the celebrations, I have another lot tour, which is a brand new tower I built in Maple City. I really needed a skyscraper for my skyline, and I was itching to try some more decorating and building techniques.

Plus I needed a place for all of the end of round 2 action to take place. :p

Cheyenne Tower dominates Maple City, standing regally between two apartment buildings.

It is a nine story building, with seven floors available to the public.

Here’s the street entrance.

The first floor contains the hotel lobby, a waiting room, billiards, and public restrooms, all in the highest of taste and design.

The second floor is the hotel, with four equal rooms containing the finest oak furniture, private bathrooms, and minibars.

Floor three hosts the five star restaurant Donatienne, known internationally for their meals, atmosphere, and service.

Floor number four is also known as Club Chey, the hottest upcoming spot in town. Nowhere is better for dancing, drinks and fun than Club Chey after hours.

Floor five contains the pub, a nice place to spend a warm, quiet evening with a glass of scotch and friends. Or if you come on the weekends, during Club Chey nights, the pub serves as the second floor of the club and the karaoke is on!

The six floor is the modest Cheyenne Tower auditorium, that can be rented for weddings, recitals, political rallies, and various performances.

Finally, the seventh floor is the piano lounge, where visitors can escape to a candlelit evening of piano solos and relax. Additionally, the observation balcony is open at all times through the french doors for an incredible city view.

Welcome to Cheyenne Tower!

What do you guys think? Happy One Year, Kayton Times! More fluff posts to follow, since this site is getting a lot of much needed additions!
