Is it ok to do the Skills Week Boost for our dynasties?
What?  Grannies can't play games?

I don't want to pester, but I'd love an answer to @Joria 's question as well. I'm avoiding playing that file until I know what's okay and what's not. Thank you!

The skills week boost is fine for all Dynasties. Yes, it will make things easier for some players, but the team is more relaxed about this kind of stuff in Dynasties as opposed to the Tournament challenges where everyone has to be on an even playing field.

Did you know there is a social for Grim which is "Demand Sim be Spared"?  I'm thinking this is a no no for us but thought I'd mention it as it could be a loophole since you aren't Pleading for Life.

@Joria: I always assumed that the rule covered that interaction too and I personally wouldn't pardon anyone who willingly used it in a dynasty regardless of how the rule was written, but do you think we should clarify and add it in as well?

There are a few different interactions that serve the same purpose as pleading, depending on the sim's mood. If they are flirty they can attempt to seduce Grim into sparing the dying sim. I have assumed they were all covered under the "no life extension for non-immortals" ban, but it might be worth clarifying.

@Trip making things clear and removing grey areas around the rules is always a good thing in my opinion so that people can't claim that "I didn't know that wasn't allowed" as their defense.

Does this look better?

Looks great! I would just say "use" instead of "using" so that the verb tenses all agree, but as far as clarifying the rule I think it's perfect. Thanks!

Perfect!  Being one who MIGHT try to sneak something by that makes it absolutely clear.

Done.

Rule Clarification: Added line to clarify that using any socials to demand a sim back from the Grim Reaper are banned.

Household members cannot complete the Bodybuilder Aspiration, use Potions of Youth, Essence of Life (from cowplant), Book of Life (from writing skill), Plead with the Grim Reaper to save a dying sim or use any other interaction to demand a sim's life back, use Age-Away Serum, wish for Youthful Vigor from the wishing well, or any other methods of extending life.

@Magpie2012 :  I have yet to make it all the way to the end of a dynasty so I understand totally!  You just have to keep plugging away.  For me, I write everything down starting with the rules so I can constantly recheck to make sure I haven't messed up or forgotten anything.  I think keeping notes helps a lot.

EDITED TO ADD QUESTION:  My towns do not seem to be repopulating at all.  Pretty much everyone is dead.  Oasis Springs is totally empty and the other towns are pretty empty as well.  Just about 8 households total most with single Sims in them.  Is there anything I can legally do to repopulate?  My pollinator has been busy but there is a dearth of females and once he's done his job the kids would all be related.

Are we able to use the sugar skull collection for one of the immortal's museum items, and if so, would the final skull also count as one?

I do not have the xpac, let me check with other team members and get back to you with the answer.

You are allowed to add EA created sims and/or sims that are created from scratch so they won't have any skills/advantages.  Please do not use gallery sims created by other players because those sims sometimes comes with too many hidden stuff that will cause unfair advantages.

@Nutella, it isn't a new xpac. It's the October Day of the Dead challenge. It's like the Easter Egg Hunt except that you ask specially dressed Sims for the sugar skulls.
