Yes, DecaDynasty stories go into the Dynasty board.

Thanks Metro! I've posted my Thread, now to go catch up with my new Attempt! This time choosing DeAndre who has no Kids with him.  ;)

I'm just wondering if I may have made another 'mistook'.  :-[  I interpreted " a pre-made townie family with no children from any unaltered EA designed neighborhood"  to mean any existing, EA created sim who had no children and decided that this included the sims in the sim bin.

Am I wrong?  Is it only pre-made families living in houses that are available to become our starting family?

I have a question.

When we move heirs into new townie homes do said townies have to be single too or can they still be living with parents or siblings?

And I'm assuming townies with no homes are out of the question?

Correct, Gheez. It's only Sims living in houses that are available.

This was already answered on this same page.

The whole point of the challenge is to continue moving into Townie homes.

I doubt that I will play this one, but I do have a question.  In my Clan Douglas Dynasty, about Generation 5 there were very few options for my character to find a mate in town.  I wound up marrying him to a tourist because I just couldn't find anyone else, and I had definitely been looking for some time.  The town residents were all too old or too young or vampires.  If that happens in this game, what should players do?

2. No household member can be a vampire, mummy, ghost, or SimBot. Any other alternate life form in future expansions is also banned.

Are you seriously saying that Imaginary Friends from the much anticipated Generations EP are banned?!

Cry? Lol. I mean what do you want me to say, Schip? ;) Rules are rules and if you can't finish a Dynasty with the established rules, then you're done. Or the obvious alternative is just finishing on your own terms and forgoing the Hall of Fame.

Depends. I don't know much about the Imaginary Friend. If it would take up a household slot, then yeah it would be out I think. But, if not, then I see no reason for an Imaginary Friend not to be okay.

It doesn't sound like it will but you can turn it into a real sim with a potion.

EDIT: I have my first Heir! Woo!  ;) And within the Deadline!

I've been bad. I've ignored all the other projects/games/dynasty/challenges I have on the go and started this one. 

I've been punished.  I've failed my first attempt.

I'm so tempted to be bad again...

Be bad and go for it Gheez  ;)

Congrats to you Metro, this is an absolutely awesome new challenge! And it was well worth the whole "Teasing-Big Announcement" hype.

7. Each heir needs to purchase one building and one property (2 separate ownerships). The property must be fully upgraded before the heir moves.
I'm wondering about this rule: do the "electronic deeds" get carried over when the heir moves to another household?
I'm not sure since properties are household's ones now.
But moving to another household is a bit like switching households. Wouldn't the properties bought by House A be automatically "reset" when the heir moves to House B? Like promised wishes and inventories. If so, there might be a little loophole here.

I'm very much looking to try this new challenge, but I'll wait to have Generations first. And I've settled for the sensible choice of first finishing the Rabbit and Baby challenges before getting anyway near a Game shop. Oh patience!

All I can say is wow Metro, lol.  I was trying to figure out in my head exactly what this would be, but this is outstanding.  I will try this eventually, but after reading the rules and the questions and answers from everyone else, sounds pretty good.  I think I understand everything, only thing unique is items you leave behind and their one unique max skill.  Like you said, take a picture of the last heir with their 10 items and 10 friends between the household.  I think I got it.  First I have to get moved and finish other dynasty, then I will have a go at this.  Great job, as always Metro. :)

Well, to be honest, I'm not 100% if they do get reset. On the other hand, you and everyone else should be using Gheez's spreadsheet to keep things 100% accurate for all of the moving requirements. So, isn't this really a non-issue?

Right, I hadn't viewed it that way, indeed. I'll use the spreadsheet of Gheez, for sure. It's a great help. Whether the game resets or not, this will help me fight the reset of my own brain  :D

I guess I do have a question?  When your heir is ready to move then you would just use "change active household" and move that heir to another household?  I realize that is using edit town or am I missing something.  I read the rules again, but I just got off work, so my brain might still be in overdrive, lol. :)

Right. Let's say the Wolff's have a baby. That baby is heir #1. Baby Wolff grows up and completes his 10 requirements and moves into another house with his spouse. You say bye bye to Thornton and Morgana and Baby Wolff's household now becomes the active one.

I was thinking the easiest way would be when you did all your requirements then you get married which will allow you to move into the new house with the spouse.
"Let's eat, Grandma!" vs "Let's eat Grandma!"   Use proper punctuation to save lives! (Plus it's a rule.)

Wait. Is it possible to move into a house that is inhabited by a townie already? I mean, can the Wolff's baby move to, say, the Alto household in order to marry Holly? Sorry, I am being dumb. :-[

Holly starts as a YA, right? Or does she start as a Teen? I forgot. But, anyway, by the time your Heir #1 would be ready to marry, I'm guessing Holly would be late into her Adulthood or maybe already an Elder. Not sure. But, to answer your question, yes — once your heir grows up, then they could move into the Alto house.

I think what Chronic means is if you select the move option on the phone/computer, can you move into an already taken house?
I just realised that that's what Salty meant too.
I don't think you can select a taken house unless you go into Edit Town, can you?

Holly starts out as a teen with five days till YA. That was just an example, but *maybe* she will qualify for my heir. Lol. ;D
