OH oops! I didn't even make that connection at all... I kept thinking it would have to be a fairy! Well I'd like to keep going if I can but I'll understand if I have to start over.

Certain skills are connected, for instance if you invent you also train your handiness skill. Are there more skills connected like that?
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

Oh, so I have to keep the human baby as my heir? He's already aged up to child and I didn't complete all the requirements with him... does that mean I've failed or can I try for a new heir, since I honestly thought he couldn't be an heir unless born that way?

If you are going for the HOF I am sorry you have failed since the human triplet was indeed your heir and those requirements were not done. :(

Ouch, that makes me so happy I decided to start with a normal sim founder, that way only occults will be heirs...

@Metro and Rica,I know that the heir has to be a different life state to the previous heir but what about in later generations. I am assuming that if you have a household of a vampire,human,ghost and werewolf you keep trying until you get a life state that is say a genie for instance.

Changing the wording to "a different life state than previous heirs" would be more what Metro and I have in mind.  Would that satisfy you, Rachel or were you talking different than that?

Well, if it is not already understood in the rules the way I look at it is each heir has to be a different life state than all other heirs, not just the previous one.

Riding Trophies do count as the only item that counts for both career reward and 7 items.  It's in the FAQ post. (Reminder we have a FAQ post! :D)

Does this mean we need all 9 trophies? 7 for the items and 2 for the career rewards, or can they count double and is 7 enough?
I am just wondering, since I am trying to plan my Dynasty.

for career rewards - get two different types of trophies (1 for jumping, 1 for racing or 1 gold and 1 silver) - the other 7 can be any combination of the available.  But you need to have 9 total in the mausoleum to count for both requirements.

@Metro it makes perfect sense to me but as there has been some confusion with how the different life state thing works I was just hoping to sort of make things perfectly clear that it is the first child born who is a different life state to all previous heirs that is the new heir.You just know somebody is going to end up with two vampires and have the excuse that the second vampire was a different life state to his mum so it counts.

@Rica,the wording any previous heirs would certainly help.

Sorry for being a pain but you all know you love me really.

Thanks Ricalynn for clearing that up! I just wasn't sure when reading "counts for both".


Edited for another question, hope you don't mind...: Does Martial Arts give a skill certificate when completing level 10?
Edited again... Maybe that was a silly question and all skills give a skill certificate when completing level 10?
Edited for the third time: I just realized that a Martial Arts skill certificate wouldn't count, since it is not directly related to a career or profession, right?
Sorry about all the silly questions... :-[

It does give a Certificate and no it wouldn't count as it's not required in any Career.

A few more 5k+ wishes for the list.

For gardening we can getting a perfect life fruit plant.
For photography we can add maxing the skill and taking a photo worth 2 500 and 3 500.

Maybe a silly question but do we need to max the career for the rewards to count?

You only need two rewards. I'm not sure whether you still need to be in that career at the end or not, I say that because of the Skill Certificates. Also getting to Level 10 may give some 5k+ Wishes I'm not quite sure.

In my dynasty, I'm planning for my sim to marry a ghost. Is there any way other than moving out the ghost to get rid of her? I don't want to move her out but I also don't want her to live forever. Also, after she gives birth to a child who is a ghost, am I allowed to use ambrosia to make her human?

Reposting here now that I'm somewhat awake.

Once the heir is born, can we cure the occult partner of their occultness? Such as a vampire getting the cure from the science facility, or asking a fairy to forsake the fae? I haven't started yet, but I'd like the partners/spouses to die in the family, and I can think of at least 4 occults that have long lifespans (vampire, fairy, genie, werewolf).

Add to the 5k wish list: Martial Arts skill - meditate for 48 hours is 10k. I assume meditate for 24 hours was 5k... and no, it doesn't have to be all in a single sitting. :)

There are no restrictions on life extending for anyone other than heirs so using ambrosia would not be a problem.

You don't have to but it's an extra wish that you can get uniquely for a Sim since that is probably going to be the most random part of this dynasty other than the birth of the next gen.  Otherwise, as long as you don't have to be level 10 to receive the reward than no you don't have to max the career.  Most rewards come later rather than sooner however.

Thank you Rica.
I have a feeling getting the career to max could kill my sim and I got a spare 5k wish I can use after I get my perfect life fruit plant either way...

I can't see anything in the rules that would ban the use of personality-changing elixirs. I assume this is a no-no; am I right?

Also, are we permitted to send spouses to get plastic surgery, since they're not covered by the prohibition on extending life?

Sweetest Pea, I don't know what the personality elixir does exactly, but we can't change anyone's traits or LTW's, so if it does that, then I think it would be a no no.
From the rules:
 Spouses/partners' traits must be taken as is. In other words, if you bring Grumpy old Gunther Goth into your household, his traits stay as is, as well as his lifetime wish. For heirs raised from birth where you have the option to pick traits and a Lifetime Wish, everything must be random.  All infants born into your game must be given two random traits at birth.  You must accept the first dice roll and you can only choose a Lifetime Wish from whatever the game offers you (no Mid-Life Crisis and no Change Lifetime Wish). This restriction is for heirs and spouses only.  Spares can have any traits or Lifetime Wish that the player chooses past the infant stage.
** The only thing I'm not sure of is that if you get to pick spares traits starting at child, if you can use personality elixirs on them, or not.
