I recently learned that with the Generations expansion pack, your magic gnomes can now get married, have babies, go through all the life stages, and eventually die.
I’m a little unclear on whether this applies to all magic gnomes, or only the Mysterious Mr. Gnome. I have tons of the vampire gnomes (after that Changing spree last time, with the teddy bears). But I didn’t have any Mysterious Mr. Gnomes (which are the original magic gnomes – others have been added with various expansion packs).
You marry gnomes by placing two of them near a wedding. So it was “all hands on deck” to get some gnomes before it came time for Quinn to marry.
I sent Khloe to fish.
Bentley’s job was to do load after load of laundry, hoping for a Laundry Gnome.
I sent Mendy to work at the Inventing Bench, hoping for one of those gnomes that looks like it’s made out of tin cans.
And Grayson’s job was to collect gems and minerals, and smelt them (sometimes you get a Mysterious Mr. Gnome back in the mail instead).
The clock was ticking! Quinn turned into a Young Adult.
And she graduated from high school as the Class Valedictorian!
I had an easy time with this one, since the game had assigned her a boyfriend during the Prom. And luckily, Benny Huddleston grew into a Young Adult the same day Quinn did, so she didn’t have to wait for him to age up.
I invited him over and had Quinn start hitting on him, just to reinforce their relationship. I have yet to figure out what kind of flirtatious line might involve a glowing gold jellyfish.
As they were flirting in the front yard, I got the notice that Khloe had reeled in a Mysterious Mr. Gnome from the depths. So it was full speed ahead!
Quinn proposed, he accepted, and she had a bachelorette party that night. Two male dancers showed up dressed as “cop stripper.”
A good time was had by all, except for the random dude who died. (There’s always one.)
The next day, I set the two gnomes out beside the wedding arch.
The wedding itself was quite a scene. Mere screenshots could not capture the chaos, so here’s a video! (Click here if you don’t see it below.)
After, it was time to get busy. But not TOO busy, because Quinn can’t afford to take maternity leave.
I need her to climb to the top of her career ladder, and the six days you get for having a baby is way too big an impact on career advancement. (Uncanny, isn’t it?)
That night, Mendy died. Bye, Mendy. Sorry everyone else was asleep when you passed over to the other side.
Did the gnomes’ marriage take? I really don’t know. But I keep finding them together. Whether it’s in the yard…
Or over by the fence.
(I named the vampire female gnome Wendy, and the Mysterious Mr. Gnome Timmy, by the way.)
Meanwhile, Quinn has conquered the jogging and cardio challenges for her skill (Athletic) and now it’s time to get strrrrong!
