Erlenstar Mountain: A Royal Kingdom Sims Blog
I recently created a new Sims 2 neighborhood, set up as a Royal Kingdom although I am not playing the challenge for points, nor following all the rules exactly. The back story for my kingdom, and some of the beautiful names, are drawn from Patricia A. McKillip's magnificent series The Riddle-Master of Hed.

I won't be blogging each household separately; instead I plan to highlight a few sims and events from each round. The rules I am using to play this neighborhood can be seen at
