3.Max a skill not maxed by other immortals. All related skill challenges from the Skill Journal must also be accomplished for the skill.

Please tell me what about the above is confusing you. Your confusion is confusing me.  :D

Requirement not restriction.

What did this mean? Sorry, again. I guess I'm off my game today.

The following tasks must be completed before Ambrosia can be eaten and Deathflowers placed in inventory.

My founder is elderly. Can he place a deathflower in his inventory?

Only if he has completed all the requirements to eat Ambrosia and become immortal.

OK this is a simply math question but since my real life stuff is clogging up my brain I can't wrap my head around it. My immortals need three unique life time rewards which would be 24 unique life time rewards over the course of the dynasty. Right? So if there is 48 life time rewards that my immortals can use (minus the change LTW and change traits plus I have all expansions and stuff packs) My founder could get 27 Life time rewards (3 unique and 24 that can be shared by all)

Well, 3 times 8 is 24, so that's how many rewards have to be unique to each sim, 3 for each sim.  The rest are up for grabs for anyone.

Correct. I haven't actually counted the exact number available myself, so if it's 48, then yeah, 24 could be shared by all. All I know is there are plenty to go around for everyone.

Ahoy there, me old mateys!  Barnacle Bay has just been downloaded into my game.  Bluebeard and his kin are waiting to populate the new town.   Shiver me timbers!  I'd really like to do a Dynasty in pirate town.  ;D

Me too on thinking I will start a dynasty in Pirate town.  I have kind of been waiting to restart to see if Barnacle Bay was going to be a town I'd like to use for it.  Did you see that there is a campground on the beach?  Now if I just could get my hands on a tent!  LOL  And now I am all confused again about the maxing skills.  I feel like I am brain damaged every time that discussion comes up again.  I will think I have it and then get all confused again.

aAAAARRRRGGGHHH!  Yo ho ho and pass me the rum!  I so wish I was you!  I have to wait till pay day, (this Friday), before I can indulge.  I want a pirates dynasty too!

Ok, Metro you are NOT going to believe this!  Grimmy came for my mortal spouse tonight.  We knew it was coming partly because he kept wanting to hug Winter and then would serenade her and then go do something else for her, back and forth.  It was interesting to watch.  So when Grim appears no one is greatly surprised.  However, he took an inordinate amount of time chatting with the family before poor Jon had to bow to the inevitable.  Ok, so I'm expecting Grim to poof in a cloud of black smoke.  Instead:











I thought I would die laughing.  First he washes the dishes, then he chats up the son and tells him he loves hamburgers!

Did Grim chat with the family before he took Jon?  Or just after?

Both.  And he never really "took" Jon.  Jon stood there as a ghost looking rather bewildered as Grimmy chatted and the family grieved and begged.  Then Jon started to walk away with an icon over his head that said he had to pee, as a ghost.  (You know that glide thing they do, not really a walk)
At that point moved past the family and went toward Jon who turned toward Grimmy and the usual beg for your life scenario started.  Grimmy never used his scythe but Jon just kind of gave up and dove into his tombstone.  Then Grimmy walked into the kitchen.  I usually see him poof into black smoke, right?  I was curious so I followed him clicking screenies all the while.  He walked into the kitchen, grabbed the plate of spoiled food, did the dishes and started to walk away.  So I clicked on him and he turned and did a friendly greeting with Justin.  The friend bar even started to fill up.  I sent Winter to make him a hamburger since he indicated he really liked them, (get to know was what they were doing), but at that point he just left running.  I knew he had a sweet tooth, (remember the pic of him buying a muffin or cookie from a kid?), but who knew he liked burgers as well.  Any other time I've tried to have a conversation with him it just says no interaction possible.

It was mentioned in another thread that the Coastal family of Barnacle Bay has 24 life plants, bearing fruit. I think this might have big implications for those starting a new dynasty.

Also, the scoop on Barnacle Bay Agnes: She's Agnes Seabottom, carries $32K, and is 8 days before Adult. She lives in a tiny house, hidden  by huge trees all over her lot. She has a military job and is Evil, Genius, Klepto, Daredevil, and Loner, with a LTW of Surrounded by Family. If you're looking for some cash and a baby, she can start you off.

To me, it's not. Maybe it is to Pam. We'll see. I can max gardening inside of 3-4 days and have life fruit on the vine from Special Seeds in about 2 weeks. I'm not saying this to brag. Anyone can do this. So, I don't know. Not a huge issue to me.

Maybe the simplest solution would just be the added edit that any life fruit for Ambrosia needs to be home grown.

Pam? Your thoughts?

Sorry for Double post but it is a different topic and a while since the other post:

@Metro - I want to keep Green Eyes as a Dynasty Gene, so am I allowed to always choose the Green Eyed child? If both had green eyes I would choose the first born. Or does it always have to be the first born?

The designated immortal has to be the first born child of parents. Even in the case of twins/triplets that means the first child that you assign a name.

Ugh, I haven't worked on the Enmei Dynasty thread in so long that now I'm not sure if I want to...I should have known this would happen.  Now I'm just playing Final Fantasy XIV (collector's edition which gets to start on the servers a week early) and doing things in Barnacle Bay...and I really want to start a dynasty there.  I did get the Enmeis to Generation 6 and I have three immortals, nearly four...ought I finish it out?  We are allowed to do dynasties in BB, right?  Has there been an official ruling on which BB lot to use?

Maybe I will just post a huge picture post in the Enmei dynasty without story (I haven't been doing much of that anyway)...just with simple captions...and try to finish that dynasty out asap.

Hrm, I've been playing EarthBound on SNES too (for the millionth time)...I'm really getting sidetracked!  At any rate, I think starting a dynasty in BB (whether or not I finish the Enmeis first) is really appealing, so I'd love to hear any new info on doing dynasties there (the lot to use...and if there's anything else...I admit I've only kind of skimmed the previous pages since I've last posted).

Sorry to ramble :)

I don't have a problem with the life fruit in Barnacle Bay.  Each town brings different advantages to the game and it's for the player to decide which one to play as part of the strategy. 

I've got Barnacle Bay downloaded and I'll determine the lot that is to be used for the Dynasty Challenge very shortly.

Got Barnacle Bay this morning (yay) and have only had a quick look so far, but as someone else noted, there are none of the new Ambitions lots placed when you start a new game. If we are going to have dynasty families started, will there be some sort of ruling to allow the placement of those lots?

The Dynasty lot for Barnacle Bay has to be 432 Tidal Terrace.  It's 59 x 59 and priced at $7,200.

Metro, would you mind coming up with items to buy and keep in family inventory to make the family funds the same as if playing in Sunset Valley?  Thanks!

Done...

  • Purchase either 15 Summerhill Ct (Sunset Valley), 345 Riverblossom Hills Dr (Riverview), 16 Puddlewick Dr (Twinbrook*), or 432 Tidal Terrace (Barnacle Bay**).
  • **With the Barnacle Bay lot, you’ll also need to purchase 1 Channel Trowler 27" Deluxe TV and 2 36" HiFi Plasmondo TVs from Landgraab Industries (Electronics > TVs). Place these 3 items in family inventory and leave them there for the duration of the Dynasty Challenge. This is for Barnacle Bay only and is necessary to make the beginning family funds equivalent to Sunset Valley and Riverview.

Don't forget to edit the Guide, Pam.

I'm wondering the same...especially about the consignment store, as I'd really like to have the luck to pick up a camera.

In BB, is it all right to home grow the life fruit for ambrosia by using one of the life fruits available on various lots to grow the plant, or do we still need to hunt down special seeds?  (I guess I'm not even sure if the having to homegrow life fruit for ambrosia is set in stone, though.)

I think I'm totally going to have to start a new dynasty later this evening.  I'm sure I'll get back to the Enmeis eventually though :)
