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.

New Eden University - Fall Semester 2001

New Eden University - Fall Semester 2001
Chase Platz - sophomore / Joy London, Felicity London, Davis Vanderburg - freshmen

The move from private housing to dorm living immediately broadened the students' social circle. 

In addition to living closer to the other students,

they had a new roommate, freshman Davis Vanderburg.

The move also seemed to help the students become more academically minded and they soon found their grades improving and they were beginning to focus more on their own personal interests.

Chase was becoming more and more interested in fitness.  He was determined to work out and get in shape to prepare himself for a future career in the military.  When his determination began to reach the point of obsession, Joy became concerned and had a few words with him.

Joy: "Chase, you're at the gym so much we never see you anymore.  I know you want to get in shape, but do you think it's good for you to push yourself so hard?  That seems like all you do anymore."

Chase: "Don't worry about me, Joy.  I know how much my body can take."

But apparently he didn't. Late one night while finishing up his work out Chase overexerted himself.  It happened so fast that no one knew exactly what happened.  One minute he was working out, the next he was gone.  Only a dormie in the cafeteria was there to witness him collapse.  Everything happened so fast there was nothing anyone could do to save him.

Tragically, a life ended much too early and the campus remained in a state of shock for the remainder of the semester as they mourned the loss of one of their own.


  1. Wow, I didn't know sims could die from exercising too much.

  2. Me neither. I wasn't watching very closely and I wasn't used to how fast the fastest speed was since I got my new laptop, so I missed exactly what happened. All I know is that he was on the exercise bike one minute and the next there was a flash, a townie had a death symbol over his head and Chase's icon was missing. Maybe he overheated or starved to death. When I finally found his urn it was in the cafeteria. I guess I'll have to see what color his ghost is.
