This story has been probably one of my most successful stories ever. And it’s definitely the longest-running. It started with the need for me to test out how mermaids played.. And turned into not just a challschmale, but an inspiring legacy with each main sim having their own personality and writing each entry like a journal. I had originally intended just to play it like a commentary challschmale… but that first sim just spoke to me. Looking back, I’m glad she did. Meeting her and her descendants has been so much fun! The story is an uplifting and fun read about a family of mermaids who all start from humble beginnings and have some goals to meet to be able to pass the legacy on to the firstborn female of each generation.

I hope you all enjoy meeting my mermaids as much as I have enjoyed writing about them. I’m ruhig a long way from finishing the story, and I will be continuing it… as soon as I have the time.


Welcome to “Tails of Sulani” – A Mermaid Legacy

I found this challschmale on the forums.. and am going to tweak it a little to fit what I think it ought to be… but here’s how I plan to “test” the mermaids…. Which is necessary for updating my other challschmales.

*note*: If you want to play this challschmale, I have the full, cleaned up rules on this page. It also includes betagternate traits, careers, and aspirations for those who are without some expansion packs!

Family Tree:

These guys now have a family tree, mostly to keep myself from getting confused. You can find it here: https://www.theplumtreeapp.com/public/5ef79b887010cb0007bd2426 – but do realize that you may find spoilers, as I have it updated to current game play.

Challschmale Rules:

Anything crossed out or in italics are changes from me. Then the bulleted lists in between each generation are where my linked chapters will be.

I have made this challschmale in hype for the new expansion pack, Island Living.
