    A Lot Can Happen In Sixty Years - Part 2

    Part 1 is here: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...y-Years-Part-1
    Building a Life Together
    This section applies to the first ten years of your marriage. The whole thing will be repeated ten times to get ten years’ worth of events.
    A Note if You’re Playing as a Gay Couple:
    Any planned pregnancies rolled can be replaced with adoption or treated as being from surrogacy, IVF, etc. Unplanned children are trickier. If you roll to have an unplanned birth and are playing as a gay couple, roll a d4 on the table below:
    1. A family member gets unexpectedly pregnant and is not prepared to raise a child. They ask you and your partner if you will adopt the child. If neither of you have any siblings, this can be a cousin.
    2. One of your children befriends a child at school who turns out to be in foster care. They grow close to your family and you end up adopting them. In this case, the kid will be the same age as one of your school-aged children, and if the roll is for multiples, roll the others as siblings who can be any age. If you don’t have any school aged children, treat this as a roll of 4.
    3. The biological parent of a child you’ve adopted in the past gets pregnant again and gets in contact with you asking if you’ll adopt again in hopes that this child can be raised with their sibling. If you have no adopted children, treat this as a roll of 1.
    4. You volunteer as short-term foster parents during a period of a few months and are matched with a kid who is between long-term placements and waiting for an adoptive family. You end up adopting them. Roll a d12 and add 5 to get their age, and if the roll is for multiples, roll the others as siblings who can be any age.

    Family Plot:
    Roll a d20 twice and add the results together to get an event on this table.
    1. (It’s impossible to get a one.)
    2. You have quintuplets. Roll a d6 for each child, and all 6es are identical. Then roll each child in the New Children section. (Plan is your choice.) Names are from here: https://www.ssa.gov/oact/babynames/d...ames1880s.html
    3. Your house catches fire and you have to move. Reroll on location table C (if you get the same result as before, assume it’s a different part of the city or rural or suburban town than where you already live.) Additionally, roll a d6 for each family member to see how they were effected. 1 – Moving schools or workplaces is difficult for this family member, but fortunately they’ve managed to make a friend in the new place (with a name from here): http://nameberry.com/list/375/Baby-N...om-Books?all=1 2 – They lose something important to them in the fire, such as a journal or a project they’ve worked hard on. 3 – The stress of the situation causes them to feel ignored. Children respond by doing something rebellious. Adults find that this puts a strain on their relationship, treat as a roll of 13. 4 – They were in the house then the fire happened, and although they have at most minor injuries, they struggle afterwards to cope with what they experienced. 5 – They were seriously, although not life-threateningly, injured in the fire. 6 – They have a near-death experience, whether they survive is up to you.
    4. You or your partner become addicted to something.
    5. Your or your partner’s parent(s) move in with the family. If neither of you have parents, you can substitute another family member.
    6. You have triplets unexpectedly. Roll a d6 for each child, all 6es are identical. Roll details in the New Children section. Names are from here: http://www.behindthename.com/names/d...ight,dramatist
    7. A sibling experiences unfortunate circumstances and moves in with you until they can get back on their feet. Up to you whether they bring a spouse or any kids with them, in which case names come from here: http://www.behindthename.com/names/m...n,wind,sky,air
    8. You purchase or open up a business in the field you or your partner are employed in.
    9. You and your partner go on a trip and leave the children with extended family. Roll a d6 for where. 1 – The location of your honeymoon. 2 – A major city with plenty of entertainment and shopping. 3 – A ski trip to the mountains. 4 – Rent a beach house. 5 – A national park. 6 – A location with major historical significance.
    10. Your family struggles financially. Roll a d6 for why. 1 2 or 3 – Someone loses their job (or, if self-employed, business is slow.) 4 or 5 – Unexpected major expense. 6 – Criminal reasons, such as being robbed or falling for a scam.
    11. Your family goes on an exciting vacation.

    13. You and your spouse struggle with your relationship.

You can put this option off if you want, and choose to have the children as a single parent through adoption or a short term relationship.
    14. You have twins unexpectedly. Roll a d6, on a 6 they are identical. Roll details in the New Children section. Names are from here, with up to twenty rerolls: http://springhole.net/writing_rolepl...mage-names.htm

    13. They get into a conflict with another kid at their school. Other kid’s name from here: http://www.behindthename.com/names/m...w,sparrow,wren
    14. They stay back a grade because they are struggling.
    15. They skip a grade because they are advanced.
    16. Their current class or school isn’t working out for them because of their learning style or similar issues. Roll a d4 for how it is resolved. 1 – Work things out where they are. 2 – Switch classrooms within the same school. 3 – Switch to a private or charter school. 4 – You start homeschooling them or enroll them in an online school from home. If they are now in a different school than the rest of your kids (including homeschooled or online), you can choose the same for any of your other kids when they start school.
    17. They experience a serious illness.
    18. They learn that they need glasses. (If they already wear glasses, they grow out of needing glasses.)
    19. This has been an eventful year for them! Roll twice on this table.
    20. Choose whichever one you like.


    Teens and adults. (These are unlikely to happen within the first ten years, but there are possible scenarios where they can, so I’ve included them in a simplified form. Also I’ve been working on this for hours today and hours yesterday, is another reason they are simplified.) When they reach adulthood also roll a career or choose one based on existing interests, and roll location starting at table 3. Update Now, if you prefer, you can use the teen and adult tables I made for part 3, found here: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...y-Years-Part-3
    1. New romantic relationship, name here: http://nameberry.com/list/20/Antique...or-Restoration (for adults, if you roll this and they’re already in a relationship, you can choose to end it and start a new one or to have them marry. If they’re already married, you can choose to treat this as a roll for a child.)
    2. New friend, name here, 20 rerolls: http://springhole.net/writing_rolepl...oriannames.htm
    3. For adults, have a child. For teens, roll a d12 and on a 12 have a child. Name here: http://www.babycenter.com/0_baby-nam...es_10305354.bc
    4. Adults receive a promotion, teens get a part-time job.
    5. Adults move and teens take a school trip, roll location from scratch.
    6. Self-discovery, roll a d4. 1 – Change religions, 2 – become passionate about a cause, 3 – Change careers, 4 – LGBT identity
    7. New hobby (choose).
    8. Disability or mental illness.


    After getting here, increase everyone’s age by one and go back to the top to roll new events for the new year, until it’s been ten years since you started.

    Reaching year ten without having any children should be very unlikely, but if it does happen, your family has quadruplets on the tenth year. Names from here: http://nameberry.com/list/58/Baby-Na...-Harvard?all=1

    Thanks for playing, part 3 is here! http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...y-Years-Part-3
