A virtual state in The Sims 2 universe
by Mrs. Calista Deppiesse
People looked at me oddly when I applied for the Record Keeper's position, but - let's be frank - who else would be more qualified?
As the years go by, as generations come and go, I will be here to see it all. Raised from the dead a few years ago by my talented, medium son, I am the parish's own, and only, zombie. I have no problems with that; it was I who asked Desi to bring me back. How else could I make sure our flower business stayed prosperous, and my family - and its future generations - would all be cared for?
So I died, came back, changed the store's slogan to "Undead, But Still Fresh!" and the business has prospered. I was no spring chicken when I left this world as a human, either - meaning I'm qualified in having direct experience with the past as well as having ample time to keep up with current events. My daughter has now fully taken over the flower shop, and I was able to take this job. I love it. As I said, who would be more qualified?
I love Burgundy Parish, and everything in it. Being able to track its progress, and record its memories means a great deal to me. Someday, everyone I know will be gone - there will be new places, fresh faces, and a different time to learn to live in. Yet I will still be here. In this way, I feel the parish and I have much in common. In this position I will be able to share the past with the new generations, and record their lives for future ones. I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be.

Danversport, and eventually the surrounding areas, were founded by knowledge sim and philosopher J.S. Guidry. Though it is one of the smaller parishes in Skasimlaki, it is a quiet and comfortable place to raise a family.
Spread out around verdant hills and surrounded by large, placid lakes, Burgundy Parish is one of the most beautiful in Skasimlaki and a regular vacation spot for those looking to get away and relax.
