Nice choice, but I think you know that Agnes is already a young adult (at the time that you start the game with 3-4 days till reaching adulthood). That may cause some issues as she'll die earlier, even before your Sim eats Ambrosia, I think. And I would also recommend Holly Alto (once she reaches young adult), in my game she has lots of days till adult and has high levels in gardening, cooking and fishing.
Morgana Wolff is another great choice but she can't sell the house like Agnes, because she has a husband, Thornton Wolff. I think you knew everything I've written long before this, but still I would suggest to think lots on your second dynasty attempt. I say that because because of bad strategy I had to start all over again, recently...

I have an issue. Holly Alto skipped the adult phase, and went straight to elder. Is there a way to fix this, or should I just deal with the issue?

As far as I know there is no way to overcome this bug/glitch. That's because there is absolutely NO WAY to return to a previous life stage (nor cheats, nor mods). I've never seen it happen before to a townie. I suggest testing with your other save files or start a new game to see if this bug reoccurs. If it does reoccur with another Sim, I would recommend fully restarting the game and the computer. This sure cures a lot of game bugs and glitches.

Call me crazy but I can't wait for you to start a new one!  ;D

Me too! I really like reading other members' stories, it sure helped me lots.

Personally I don't see anything wrong with the spouse dying before the founder becoming immortal except when the spouse is a best friend. My policy is always to get an older wife because my immortals have all got married and tried for baby the day they turn YA (including the founder) so they can't get a younger wife. As for Holly her skills differ in different games, for yours she's a good choice but in others she may not be. Agnes' skills are more fixed since she's already a YA.

I hope I didn't sound offensive but this is just my take after restarting over and over again with a male immortal. (:

I have used Agnes in my dynasty's and would not have it any other way, but that is my take on it.  As long as she produces an heir and she does the painting, it is all good.  She has made a wonderful mother and wife and I don't even think her grumpy trait even made a difference and of course the money helps, but that is not the only reason why I use her though. :)

I'm on my third start of my dynasty. I decided to play Barnacle Bay to try it out. Jasmine Noon makes a decent first wife. She's level 6 painting and maxed in charisma. Of course she made it to about 89 days old before my founder hit elder, but that's OK. Picking gardening as the founder's career was not that helpful due to the lack of money tree seeds. My elder founder is almost maxed in his gardening career, he should be OK. I may post on the story board, not sure.

I know of no way to fix that bug. Can you return to an earlier save?

Tried that, but it did not work. I have two ways to go about solving though, if either of them is allowed. One: Can you force a backwards age transition using testingcheats? Two: I could keep her alive with a tattoo or life fruit until I get even with the number of days that she missed: The whole Adult stage.

If you can that's news to me.

Yeah, she basically has 3 whole weeks coming to her. So, what I would do is the day she is slated to age up to Elder, feed her Ambrosia one time to reset her back to the beginning of Adulthood. That works for me.

I just completed a dynasty using Morgana's husband Thornton as the founders spouse. With the car he brought into the family we had a budget of over 100,000 simoleans to start with. I have already started my new Dynasty with Agnes as the founders spouse. Besides the money which is not that important she brings high levels of painting plus the loner trait,which means she doesn't mind being stuck in the house sculpting all day.
After doing this challenge once without any plan at all I am definitely a woman with a plan this time round.

Aw and see I'd go for some random Sim no one else has even considered just for uniqueness sake. But that's just me.

She didn't miss YA, she missed Adult and is now an elder. I assume I can do the same thing: Once she reaches 90, feed her Ambrosia. Also, if you would allow it, I was wondering whether I could give her a death flower just in case she dies of old age before 90, as has happened to me before.

Sorry to seem like such a pain, but I have one more issue. My Sim has the hunted moodlet which has lasted for about 3-4 days. There are no vampires in the household, and it is really bugging me. Is it supposed to last this long?

One of my immortals got the hunted moodlet as a toddler and it persisted her entire life.  For the most part it didn't affect her negatively that I could see but it was aggravating to me.

Yes, that's fine.

I don't know what would be causing the Hunted moodlet if there are no immediate vampires in the area. Try Resetting that Sim.

Resetting the Sim is not working. I know that I could delete it using testingcheats.

That's fine. It's a bug, so I don't have a problem with it. Remember to turn them off.

@ratchie - Congratulations on your new dynasty! What would be the last name of the dynasty? Waiting for updates!
@n8thrgr8 - I don't have Late Night, but I think this might be because of a vampire gnome in the house (the hunted moodlet). Do you have any such gnomes?

I love the theory, but I've had vampire gnomes and I'm fairly sure they don't cause the hunted moodlet. I had it get stuck when my then teenage second generation immortal teleported home away from a vampire, if that's any help. Incidently she's no longer a teenager, she just had a very eventful pregnancy, first her step dad died, then her husband set fire to the kitchen and then she had twins.

Dec has so far had no Sculpting Ops? He just turned YA and I am hoping that that will be the turning point, he has the Opportunistic trait as well but I want to save the School Ops that I havn't done yet for other Immortals.  :-\

That was the problem, samo. No skill ops fire until a Sim is YA.
