And so we meet our hero, Chase Stoddard…
And this is his lot in life.
Yes, quite literally. A beautiful lot in Oasis Springs that the real estate agent called “Pebble Burrow” and a “quite place to build a family.” In Chase’s mind, it was also the perfect spot to build a house. Of course, he only had §18,500 with which to build it, so he opted to first get a job, then build.
Yes, he was going to serve his fellow Sims in the military. The ultimate goal: the rank of an officer. A time-honored role in the community, his athletic aspirations would serve him well in his future endeavor as a member of the armed services. The only drawback, a daily commute to Strangerville. Yes, the people there were quite odd, but that wasn’t Chase’s problem. As a recruit, he had one thing on his mind: to get to the gym. A quick session on the exercise machine would net him a nice little bonus.
After a gym adventure, Chase returns to Pebble Burrow to build a house. It isn’t the prettiest house on the block, but it has four walls, a bed, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a living room. And he still has a little over §1,100 remaining, so at least he can eat. “Over time this will become a show place. Until then, it’s my humble abode.”
Tomorrow he starts work. Tonight, it’s time to eat dinner and relax.
