Royal Kingdom Challenge

Originally created for TS2 by EnblitheFair, and then adapted to TS4 by GymeaLillie, I took it and modified it a bit.

Premise: This is a slightly modified Kingdom challenge, mostly with requirements for each heir as well as a few changes in general play style, depending.  So, once you have your new Monarch, move them into the castle upon the death of the previous monarch.  Designate the other two families as noble, and if you didnít set up your towns earlier, do so now and designate the other families and what they are (noble, merchant, peasant as well as designate the lines in the other worlds if you want to use them as separate kingdoms).

Goal:  Have your families continue for 10 generations (must complete the requirements for this to occur).  Now, this isnít to say that they have to be 10 consecutive generations.  If for some reason, an heir dies and they donít have a viable heir, then you can run a One Family to Rule them All once more.  What this means, is that if there are spares (or even illegitimate children) running around, it is entirely possible to have what was previously a Royal bloodline come back, depending.

Royal Family Rules and Requirements
Rules
1. Can use money cheat as often as needed
2. First born is Heir; canít move from Castle (must be the legitimate child of King and Queen)
3. If first born should meet with an unfortunate end before their requirements are met, or before they produce an heir, the next sibling in line will become the heir (and thus must fulfill whatever requirements they may have left).  If there are no siblings left, use One Family to Rule Them All once more!
4. The heir can only marry another of Royal bloodline or noble class (must throw wedding party and must attain at least a silver).  If not, marriage is doomed.  No divorce allowed, thoughÖ but there are-- other ways.
5. Illegitimate children of either the King or Queen can be considered of Royal bloodline but cannot become Heir (unless they are part of One Family to Rule Them All)
6. Can have peasants move in as servants, as well as hire butlers and nannies

Witch/Wizard Class Rules and Requirements
Rules
1. This is an optional class, technically
2. Only 1 Household
3. Can join any career, own all the modern amenities, use potions
4. Everything else is restricted to the Peasant class, including requirements

Church Class Rules and Requirements
Rules
1. Another optional class, one created from any illegitimate children or other folks who go to the Abby or Convent
2. There isnít an heir, technically, though can have a system for deciding who the new head of it will be
3. They are self-sufficient, growing their own food, fishing, etc.  They also can sell their paintings, wood carvings, etc.
4. They are not taxed

Requirements
1. Must contribute (job or money-making hobby)
2. Must work on gardening, fishing, or herbalism
3. Must purchase Carefree and Hardly Hungry before becoming adults
4. Must complete initial aspiration before becoming an adult

General Rules
1. If at any point, an heir does not complete their requirements, and there isnít another sibling or spare that can complete the requirements to become heir, and the previous heir and their spouse are no longer able to have children, the line dies out.  Once the family dies out, another family can take their place.  This means that a family below them in social status can move up if you so desire.  So a merchant family can become a noble family, or a peasant family could become a merchant family.   If the royal family dies out, then use One Family to Rule Them All.  If a peasant family moves up, a new one can be created/moved in.
2. Anytime there is woohoo, flip a coin, use a RNG, a die, something to determine whether they need to try for baby or just woohoo (or if using a mod like MCCC, there is a module for risky woohoo, I believe)
3. No cheats, other than those specified and building cheats
4. Try to play each family for the same length of time (would suggest a week each)
5. As to determine what class someone may be, can designate a gender rule (such as the male class is always used) or can do random or based on funds, etc
6. Illegitimate children (non-Royals) take on the class of their mother
7. Can use the other Worlds and either keep them as rotational play as well, or use the families there as options for spouse prospects, etc
8. Witch/Wizard class as well as Church class are both optional as far as playing with
