This game is inspired by the game Life. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a board game where you reach milestones on the board like getting a job, or getting married and starting a family. I thought I’d make a game on nameberry about it!

I’ll give you a form with details to fill out

If you want an event to happen, just reply with the name of the event (you can find the names and descriptions in “things that can happen”)

When your character is 16, they can choose if they want to go to college. If so, they go to [name_u]Berry[/name_u] University and get to pick their degree.
When your character is 18, they can chose to get a job. If they have no degree, they will get a job that doesn’t require a degree. If they went to college, they will get a job for their specific degree.
When your character is 14, you can ask for a partner. They can break up or stay together. When they are 18, they can get married.
Starting at 18, couples can have kids by choice. They can hire a surrogate, get IVF, or do it naturally. You can choose to switch to your child anytime and have them be your character.
Starting at 15, you can ask for a wild card. This will be an event that adds drama. This can be a teen pregnancy, a partner cheating, someone getting in an accident, etc.
Death can happen when you want it to. If you want a character dead, just describe how they died and they’ll be dead!
