Steelhead Mt St Helen's is Here!

Steelhead's latest sim--Mt St Helen's--arrived! Here I am at the top looking over the whole sim...
I love when a sim is brand new and everything is being terraformed and added to it. I love the waterfall and trees...Some of us gathered by the fire with marshmallows...Later, I couldn't think of a better place to be a critter and chase (and be chased by) the deer through the woods...

Leftovers Dance

I went to Steelhead's "Thanksgiving Leftovers" dance as turkey bones...It looks like I ended up as soup stock...Hope you all had a great holiday!

Steelhead Town Meeting: Steelhead Mt St Helen's Prebooking Available

The citizens of Steelhead gathered for their weekly town meeting. O'Toole had a very large drum to bang. You may find out more about local events HERE, but the big announcement of the evening is that Steelhead Mt St Helen will be arriving in December and is now available for prebooking!
What is that large mountain in the background? Oh, it's perfectly safe to live there...To summarize the info from Lunar:
Steelhead's sixth sim will be a rugged, frontier wilderness community in the Oregon Territories, tree-filled and more rural with unpaved roads. Steampunk is very much allowed as long as a western influence is present in the build. Think the wild Pacific Northwest and geothermal power. Industries such as logging, slaughterhouses, cattle ranching, shipfitting, and whaling are very welcome, and industry builds are allowed to spit out tons of smoke in the air as well as dump pollutants into the water (This was the era before the EPA).

If you are interested in living there, please contact TotalLunar Eclipse.

Steelhead's New Station

Lunar and Tensai have built a brand new structure based upon this one to replace one of Steelhead's most well-known landmarks--the train station...
Steelhead's station has had a main train station for as long as I can remember. It serves as Steelhead's main welcome center and there is now plenty of room inside for new arrivals...
My favorite thing about it is the beautiful ceilings and beams...

I went to Steelhead for tonight's Guy Fawkes-inspired dance and found this note tacked to an underground room...As you can see, I was dressed in a tiny gunpowder keg. After making my way through the tunnels I found the revelers and joined their dancing...Afterwards, I thought I'd go home to Harborside and partake of a bit of fishing, as Lunar created a lovely area by the water to do so...I even managed to catch this pretty ultrarare fish!

Noodle's at Ho Ping's

I stopped by the Steelhead Shanghai pawnshop establishment of Mr Ho Ping the other night, where I joined siblings Lunar and Lady Christine MacAllister for some noodles and sake. All that I can say is that elves must have a rather high tolerance for sake. I took care not to spill any of the broth onto my satin dress, although a vegetable (or at least I think it was a vegetable) escaped my chopsticks at one point.

Town Meeting: Of Squiddies and Spookiness

The citizens of Steelhead gathered for the weekly town meeting, where it was announced that Miss Tibouchina Freschi won the trophy for Steelhead's Spookiest House...I was rather surprised to see the relatively reclusive Dr Alter present. It seems a John Doe was found in her pet squiddy thing last Friday and Sheriff Fuzz and Steelhead in general are to help solve the mystery of how he ended up there...
