Is there some way to tell what relationship level our sim has with an Old Friend?  Wimsey has two of them and the green bar is almost full - they appear to me to be Best Friends, but is there any way to know for sure?  The next sim down is just a Friend, so that doesn't help here.

If the Sim on the other side is a Best Friend, the go ahead and count the Old Friend as one, too.  Plus, if the bar is full, they are Best Friends anyway.

Is anyone else doing a female character as the founder?

Mine is female.  She married Christopher Steel in Sunset Valley.  Mine is the Dreamweaver Dynasty on the stories board if you want to read it.  It's not as clever as some of the other stories because I'm not that creative.  It's just a report of what's happening, but I'm trying to give tips along the way of things I'm doing.

Riiiiight, Pam.  You're not that creative, huh?  Now pull the other leg.  I'll go read Dreamweaver. 
What?  Grannies can't play games?

I've got a female founder too; she married Billy Caspian in Riverview.  It's linked (but not up to date) in my signature (not up to date as in my 5th gen just reached teen) if you want to read it :)

As for Twinbrook...hrm, I really can't say who I'd marry.  Maybe Justin Kayes.  I've had a sim marry him before and he's nice and handsome, though doesn't have a particularly helpful skillset.  Actually, come to think of it, maybe I'd try Buddy Bailey.  Has the artistic trait, starts with 2 painting, and is a young adult.  He's not rich or anything, but might be useful anyway.

There's another guy in Twinbrook who's decent.  I can't remember his exact name, though.  Something like Goodson Good.  He wears all white and has very blond hair.  He lives in the Good and Bad household (again, I may not be remembering the exact name).  He has gotten a girl pregnant at the start of the game, but I had a Sim meet him and he was single until a little later when he showed up as being engaged.  His traits are all good-related.  Not terribly useful, but not unplayable, either.  And he's not as ugly as many of the Twinbrook residents.

About the "Oh my ghost!" Opportunity, may we take a random grave from the mausoleum and simply use that? If the ghost gets added to the household we can just kick them. Is that ok?

The problem with that is according to the Dynasty rules, you cannot move anyone out of the house.  I believe that would count for ghosts that you move in after having them restored.  They will have to live out their ghosthood in your house while you wait for a spot open up to make room for a new immortal candidate.

Oh yes, of course, silly me. I'd just considered how irritating it can be for a self-employed nectar maker, etc to get opportunities.

Well, just be sure to keep the slots open.  You should get enough eventually.

I'm keeping the opportunistic LTR open for anyone to use and plan to give it to all the immortals, probably before they get their unique three.

It's six unique opportunities/BlackOps they need, not three.  I gave my sims the opportunistic LTR as well, but I don't think it helps them get opportunities - it just increases the payout they get when they complete them.

Pielord, the first two Immortals-to-be in my Dynasty are self-employed, and I have been agonizing over the opportunity problem.  The only suggestion I can give is, don't overlook the community opportunities.  My Gen 2, Wimsey, has managed to complete two of those - the Olympics and the Eating Contest.  Without those she may never have gotten enough opportunities.

Goodwin Goode?  Yeah, he's a nice guy, and starts single, even though he has a baby on the way (I've played the file with the mother of his child before and he didn't really go for her...he ended up with another girl).  He's handsome though, and starts at young adult like Buddy Bailey does.

My Twinbrook legacy founder married Shark Racket, who is 4 days from YA at the beginning. He's got good traits, including some skill in athletics. His family is very well-connected.

There's DeAndre Wolfe.  He doesn't have any painting skill, but he's rich and artistic, and he's pretty close to completing his LTW of being a Rock Star.  He lives alone, so he might bring a nice car and simolians to the family.  He's not bad looking either, although he does age up to elder in 11 days.

Here's a list of all the Townies in Twinbrook that the game starts with.  It includes their traits, skills, relationship status and age.

Yeah, DeAndre is a hottie, but gets old fast. He may be the equivalent of Agnes, though, to bring money to the dynasty.

edit: D'oh! I absolutely added no information in this post.   :-[

The guy Winter Thyme married was Harwood Clay.  I married him because of his supposed abilities but have seen very little of said abilities within him.  I think I'm going to give him another chance even though he is already an elder.  I think the best shot at a guy, looks and talents wise is.....darn it!  Elder moment here.  He's an artistic type who joined the military and is VERY good looking and the right age.  grrr
will go find his name

EDIT:  found it!  Marc Brandt.  I'd like to give him a spin but I really do love Harwood.  Winter is such a good one for Marc though.  She's absolutely gorgeous and with no 3d party cc or anything.  Even her clothes were decent!  Ok, do over time since I cheated in my practice with Harwood.  (figured it was unplayable for the challenge so went ahead and cheated, now I'll go back and do it clean)
