Welcome to the New Eden Community Blog

Recently branched off from the older community of Eden, many younger residents have chosen to move away from their ancestoral land to a different location, called New Eden. Although most residents still hold closely to their family ties and history they are eager to start a new life in a place they can make their own.

Moving in: The Crabtree Family

The name Winston Crabtree is well known in the sim entertainment industry for his work as a talent agent and casting director for the long running sim soap, Arrendale Heights, but his personal life has been kept largely private. Before he moved to New Eden, he lived in Bay Pointe, where Arrendale Heights is filmed. He is single, never been married, and has no children. His family, his father, the caretaker of the Bay Pointe cemetary, and much younger half-siblings still live in Bay Pointe.

He's moved away from Bay Pointe, hoping his new home will be a private retreat from his professional life.At least to some degree. One of the first rooms in his spacious home is set aside as an office where he can meet with clients and work from home.
His first day in his new home, he's already meeting with clients. Trevor Yang and Gareth Thayer members of the new band, Aerial Bionic drop by to see how the publicity shots from their recent photo shoot turned out.

And offer some suggestions about how they would like to see things done, but Winston, as their agent/manager is not afraid to speak up when he knows best and veto anything that he thinks will hinder their careers.

However when it comes to the creative side of things, he knows when to step aside. Leave the talent to those who have it, good business sense is his strong suit.

Moving in: The Harris Family

One of the first families to move into New Eden is young married couple, Gregory and Robin Harris. Though not from the oldest families in Eden, both come from families that had risen to prominent places in the community. Robin's mother Brooke Young (descended from the Thayer-Centowski family line) is Eden's only elected spokessim and her father is CEO of his own company. Gregory's mother is a local theater actress and his father is a local athletic star. Both are only children, but Robin has many aunts, uncles, and cousins living in Eden and New Eden. If their parents are any indication, this couple seems destined for success. Their house is still modest from the exterior. Gregory and Robin both see this as a starter house that they can expand upon. The highlight of this house for Gregory is the detached garage which he has converted to his own fitness and dance studio. "We never had anything like this back in Eden," Gregory proudly boasts.
While Gregory runs his studio, Robin is just getting started in her career in the field of law. Is she interested in following in her mother's footsteps and running for office in New Eden? Perhaps. Robin says, "I never aspired to go into politics, but if we need someone to fill the role and I turn out to be the best sim for the job, I wouldn't say no." Sounds like it might be a likely possibility.

The couple seems very cozy and settled in their new home already, though they say they'll need to add another addition to the house before it can be complete, as the couple happily announces they're already expecting a new addition to the family soon.
