FLASHBACK <<<

Dear friends and readers of the Loewe Legacy,

SURPRISE!!! When I viewed the results of the poll in the post dedicated to the 4th birthday of the LL last week, I felt very moved. Even after the six-months-long hiatus, all of you still wish the story goes on. So, although I am not officially returning, I came up with an idea in order to provide you with a little reading material for this summer.

What you see above is the teaser poster for the upcoming retrospective series of nine short episodes dedicated to the character of Chloe Thomas at the Dribbledine Sports Academy. Are you excited? I hope you are! However, I have to warn those of you who aren’t caught up with the main storyline as the FLASHBACK <<< contains a major spoiler. I have also created a stand-alone page dedicated to the DSA featuring extra content as a support & teaser material for this series. I hope you will enjoy this special treat. Dribbledine Sports Academy awaits!

FUN FACT: The Dribbledine Sports Academy main building and campus, as well as the looks and character of some of the DSA students & staff, were inspired by the Blackwell Academy from my favorite game Life is Strange. Since it’s obviously a fan build inspired by another video game, I never intended to feature any of it in this story but because I spent quite some time building it I’ve decided to use it in the end. The images are intentionally blurred to give the retrospective series FLASHBACK <<<  a similar graphic style of the original game.

Celebrating 4 years of the Loewes

My dear fellow Simmers, today is a special day!

Four years have passed since the day when I published my very first post and my very first page. That’s insane.


Kate and Prim, September 1999, Appaloosa Plains


Nearly two years have passed since the day I published the teaser to the episodic series of short clips entitled Shards Of My Past. That’s tragic.


Mary and baby Kate, August 1971, Appaloosa Plains


More or less six months have passed since the day I finished editing the first video of the series BUT since it was initially thought of as of a goodbye to my beloved founder Kate Loewe and she’s still alive in my game I haven’t uploaded it yet. That’s shameful and great at the same time.


Kate, July 1979, Appaloosa Plains


You see, I have this ‘special’ bond with this Sim and I just simply cannot bring myself to play the game anymore because her life bar is full and if I start playing again she’ll die. And I cannot do that. That’s weird.

So what should I do? That’s the question. And I need you to help me answer it.


Before you submit your vote in the poll below, I would like to let you all know that I have quit my job in Italy in December and moved back to my home country at the end of February with a big plan – to start my own fashion brand. That’s one of the main reasons why I haven’t been active in the Sims community in the past months.

As you can imagine, making such a big change isn’t always easy so since my life is currently very busy (leaving business apart, I’m lucky to have a big real-life family), I have no spare time to dedicate to the Loewe Legacy at the moment. Personally speaking, I have never planned to abandon my little pixel family completely, but I won’t be able to play and write as often as I was able to while in Italy. I hope you will understand the lack of my activity, but don’t worry, I won’t disappear completely. I have actually written the intro of Chapter Four, I only miss the pictures, however, I’m not completely sure if I want to start another chapter if I’m not sure I will ever finish it.

I know there are my loyal readers that are still waiting for the first episode of Chapter Four.  You – yes you – are the reason that keeps me going and I don’t want to disappoint any of you, my dear friends, fellow Simmers and readers of the LL.

Alright, taking all this info into account, could you please help me decide what to do?

Thank you!

NEW PAGE: Who is Who?

Hello, friends! I have finally done it!

The page dedicated to the alphabetical list of the characters who appear in the story is finally up! Whether you’re a loyal reader or a curious newcomer I’m sure this page will come handy to all of you. I have been thinking about this time-consuming project for over a year now and I’m so proud of myself that I have managed to complete it at last. Some of you have been asking me in the comments about the relationships between various characters so from now on when you’ll not be sure about something you can consult this page which holds answers to some of your family tree/extended family related questions as well as a list of episodes in which each character appears. I hope you’ll find this new addition to the website useful and maybe even entertaining! The new page Who is Who? is listed in the drop-down list of The Story on the menu bar.

Have a great day everyone and happy reading!

Family BIOS: Generation 2

Gen2-BIO-Elisabeth-Loewe


Before you run to read the biographies of the second generation I have to warn readers who haven’t finished reading all the episodes of Chapter One, Chapter Two and Chapter Three. Elisabeth’s bio contains a major spoiler while Benjamin’s bio covers his life in Moonlight Falls, therefore, it’s safe to read for anyone. Amanda’s, Malika’s, Finn’s and Zachary’s bios reveal some minor spoilers – such as who married who and how many children they had…


My dear fellow Simmers, readers and friends,

I have finished writing all the biographies of Generation 2 earlier than planned! Elisabeth‘s, Benjamin‘s, Finn‘s, Zachary‘s, Amanda‘s and Malika‘s BIOS are here!

You can find them on their pages dedicated to the PICs aka Personal Identification Cards (The Loewe Family > Meet the Family > Elisabeth Loewe/Benjamin Thomas/Finn Loewe/Zachary Loewe & The Loewe Family > Meet the Extended Family > Amanda Loewe/Malika Loewe).

Please, don’t forget to let me know in the comments what you think about this new addition to the website! The biographies of the third generation will come at the end of Chapter Four.

Have a great day!

Family BIOS: Generation 1


Before you run to read the biographies I have to warn readers who haven’t read the first three episodes of Chapter Two because Kate’s bio contains a major spoiler and foreshadows one very important event that occurs in Chapter Three. David’s bio is safe for everyone who has read the first ten episodes of Chapter One.


Dear friends,

most of you probably know that I disappeared from the community in November of the last year, but if you thought that I have been slacking off in the past months I must tell you that you are completely right wrong. I have been working on some extra content for the story I mentioned at the end of the last episode (go catch up if you haven’t done so already). The alphabetical list of Sims that appear in the story will take some more time to complete, but the family biographies are almost finished!

Meanwhile I work on the last bio of Generation 2 (guess who), I have decided to upload Kate & David‘s BIOS (also because I am way too excited to wait and publish them all at once!). I hope you’ll enjoy reading about David’s background since it tells a story never told before… You can find their BIOS on their pages dedicated to the PICs aka Personal Identification Cards (The Loewe Family > Meet the Family > Kate Loewe/David Loewe).

Please, don’t forget to let me know in the comments what you think about this new addition to the website! I can’t wait to share the biographies of the second generation with you all!

Have a nice weekend!
