Thank you, Shannon.  I had missed that part.  Really bad vision.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

@Joria @mpart @sdhoey

sdhoey is correct. 

2016 Challenge Tournament Rules -- ONLY for challenges!  This means the two new challenges we have in January (new year resolution and skill of the week) have to follow those rules.  All future 2016 challenges will follow this rule.  They are NOT for dynasty.

Dynasty rules -- first page first post on the specific dynasty thread.

For Dynasty:
Get Together -- allowed
Reward Lamps -- allowed
Potions -- allowed
Basically everything is allowed unless noted on the first page of this thread that it is banned for this dynasty.

Every dynasty will have slightly different rules.  Don't assume the rules for Immortal Dynasty applies to Rival Dynasty.

@Nutella - Okie dokey... LOL
I played for a couple of hours last night and found the town more appealing than I thought. So the Riley's will continue in the Oasis.

Thanks for answering all my questions. ;D

Great news about editing lots for club hangouts. I've discovered pre-existing lockable hangouts in the Shrieking Llama Bar (basement) and the Avant Gardes have one in the South Square Cafe, but they're boring hangouts as they are now. Thanks!

The Dynasty Challenge is still going on, yes? I've always been a little overwhelmed by it before, but I really think I want to try it.

Also... this...

Question... can I redo my town? Meaning take some houses away, add more venues and give it a revamp? Does that make sense?

Yes.  There is no end dates for dynasty challenges. 

Question... can I redo my town? Meaning take some houses away, add more venues and give it a revamp? Does that make sense?

Yes and no, depending on what you are planning to do.

You are allowed to place "MAXIS CREATED" buildings (commercial and residential) in your dynasty. 
You are allowed to add club hangouts.
You are allowed to edit community lots to add or rearrange objects such as microphones, easels, etc.

You cannot bulldoze any lots that comes with the town, residential or commercial.  Just say "no" to bulldoze.
The only time you are allowed to bulldoze is your starting lot (lots listed on the first page).

You cannot take houses away (except starting lot).
Newcrest has 15 empty lots, there should be more than enough space for you to add venues to revamp your town.

Okay, Thank you for clarifying. That was how I understood it from the rules page, but wasn't sure I understood it right. So I filled NewCrest up with Maxis lots (both venue and homes). So when it comes to my dynasty home, I can NOT find one from the gallery, I have to build it myself?

Yes, building your own house has always been part of the Immortal Dynasty Challenge.

I would like to clarify what a venue party is, so I can feel certain whether the party below is eligible or not.

Though Gen4 had previously thrown a birthday party at home for himself and his twin (gold medal), he just threw one more a sim-week later for his spouse and a household helper at the Shrieking Llama Bar. We brought our own cakes and food (also a good medal).

Is this what is meant by a "venue party"? 
If not, we'll just throw another Spooky at home.

Okay, Thank you @MarianT . I only asked cause I stink at building unless I'm in the mood. That's okay, though, this will push me to build. The gallery just has me so lazy. With such amazing creations on the gallery I don't even bother anymore. lol

Yes eligible.  Birthday party at a different venue (this case it is Llama Bar) is an example of "venue party".

Okay, I might drive ya'll nuts with the questions, but one more...

Do they have to wait until they are elders (and accomplished all the goals for that gen) to eat ambrosia or can they start eating it as soon as they accomplish the goals for that gen?

And another question while I'm thinking about it. Once they reach the top of their career, can they quit or do they have to keep the job the entire length of the challenge?

Okay... I have read thru ALL 66 pages and... man, wish I had done that before I started my Dynasty (It only took me from last night to now to get all that reading done :D )

And I have determined, I have to start my dynasty over. I didn't understand the rules until I read the pages. But, just to clarify a few things before I start again (and I am sorry for making you repeat yourselves)...

If Sim #1 has the connection trait as her unique reward, no other immortal sim can have that trait, correct? (That is one place I went wrong with my first try).

And if Sim #1 uses like the "inspired potion" as her unique reward, no other immortal may purchase them, even for personal use, but non-immortals may purchase them so that anyone can use it? (Sorry, editing cause I remembered another part to this question)... And if they do use the "Inspired Potion" as their unique reward, what do we do with it? Keep it in their inventory or just note it on the spreadsheet provided is fine?

My founder had Don as her BFF, before they got hooked up, but they did get married and lived together, so he no longer would be allowed as her BFF since she wasn't doing the soulmate aspiration, correct?

And, as for starting over... can I use my same sim? Not as she is now. No, that is not allowed, I know. But the copy that was made when I created her in CAS?

Okay, I think that is all. For now.

Regarding unique rewards -- you're right, only one of your Immortals can have Connections as a unique reward. But if you want to use it for more than one, it can be a "free" reward. Keep in mind, too, that getting an A as a teen means the sim starts at level 3 of a job. It's really only necessary if your sim is doing the Renaissance Sim aspiration.

Non-immortals can purchase Inspired potions for your immortals if one of them has the Inspired potion as a unique reward. You don't need to keep the potion, just note it on your spreadsheet.

I think it's okay to have your  Immortal's spouse as the unique BFF, but keep in mind that the children usually become good friends with their parents.

Thank you, Marian! And is it okay to use my same sim, from the CAS save, in my new attempt or should I start completely fresh? I'm quite attached to her, already.

Correct.  If you claim it as unique, it is off limits for all other immortal sim. 

And if Sim #1 uses like the "inspired potion" as her unique reward, no other immortal may purchase them, even for personal use, but non-immortals may purchase them so that anyone can use it? (Sorry, editing cause I remembered another part to this question)... And if they do use the "Inspired Potion" as their unique reward, what do we do with it? Keep it in their inventory or just note it on the spreadsheet provided is fine? 

Correct.  If Sim #1 claim "inspired potion" as unique reward, no other immortal can purchase it.  However non-immortals are not tied to the same rules, they can purchase "inspired potion" and anyone can use it (including immortals).

My founder had Don as her BFF, before they got hooked up, but they did get married and lived together, so he no longer would be allowed as her BFF since she wasn't doing the soulmate aspiration, correct?

No.  Don can still be the BFF, but you have to make sure he is the unique BFF.  This BFF (Don) cannot be a Good Friend or BFF to any other Heir.  Since Don is already in the household, it is very easy to accidentally become good friend with the future heir.  My suggestion is to get a unique BFF outside of the household and don't let that BFF know or befriend any of your immortal heirs.

And, as for starting over... can I use my same sim? Not as she is now. No, that is not allowed, I know. But the copy that was made when I created her in CAS?

The copy you made when you first created her in CAS right?  With no play time at all right?  If yes, you can use her.  We just don't want players to start with a sim that is saved after they have some skill levels.

Yes, that's right. No play time, she just saved to the library when I created her (as all sims do).

Thank you, Nutella!! Off to start again. I'm much more excited/nervous about this restart... I think this is going to be much harder than I anticipated... which makes it even more fun! :)

@WriterJunkie, I forgot to say -- I'm impressed that you read all 66 pages of the thread. Still, be glad you didn't try the Immortal Dynasty for TS3 -- that's at 416.
