Basic F&R Mythology

I posted this to tumblr and thought it might be good here as well. A breakdown of the supernatural species in the F&R universe:

  • The Watcher - All powerful, works in mysterious ways, represents the player of the game

  • Demi-Watchers - Keep the universe running behind the scenes, often personified concepts, invisible to mortals most of the time, answer to the Watcher but manage themselves in their own bureaucracy.

  • Fairies/genies - “Fallen” demi-watchers bound to an earthly form, associated with animals and nature, mostly immortal but death can restore them to the above.

  • Witches/aliens/plantsims - Mortals with supernatural DNA. Genetic and not curable, though one can create the illusion of it. Passed on through offspring or full magical transfiguration. Witches can see demi-watchers.

  • Werewolves/vampires/zombies - Mortals under an enchantment. Curable and contagious (through biting), can be passed from parents to children as a ‘curse’ but not truly genetic.

  • Humans - A little insecure about their place in the universe. Followers of the Jacoban religion believe humans to be the only people with souls, and becoming a supernatural makes you lose it. Many also believe witches are humans who sold their souls (and bodies) to gain their powers.

  • Servos - Artificial people created by humans, though there’s some debate as to whether they could be magically inspired. Mortal but highly durable.

  • Ghost - The spirit of a mortal outside of a body, a state achieved by being touched by the Reaper’s scythe or eaten by a cowplant. Can choose to haunt the mortal world or “move on” to the unknown. Only ghosts who don’t move on can be resurrected. Can see demi-watchers and will retain this ability if restored to life.

Heh, yes, she is indeed part of that believe system (or raised that way, anyway).

This was an interesting reed. Thanks for posting!

I noticed that you lumped Zombies with other creatures that can pass on their condition. Does that mean that zombie bites are contagious in your story?

Yes, I might use some of the TS3 zombie aspects for that. :)

I don't have sims 3, so I didn't know how they were handled there. Interesting.
