Let's Get Mystical

lgm.jpg

Goal
Your Sim wants to discover all the blessings and curses of the 27 mystical relics that can be assembled from pieces found in Selvadorada. Your Sim will need to gather 9 Zazatotol heads, 9 Balampalsoh heads, 9 Totecallama heads, 9 Watcher bases, 9 Chaos bases, 9 Death bases, 9 common crystals, 9 uncommon crystals, and 9 rare crystals. All the crystals will have to be refined. Once a relic is assembled, your Sim will have to activate it on himself or herself to discover the relic's effect. Warning: keep some bone dust handy for the Curse of Death by Poison.




General Challenge Rules

Specific Challenge Rules
  • The Jungle Adventures expansion pack is required.
  • Create 1 Young Adult Human or Alien Sim.
  • No household additions allowed after leaving CAS.
  • You are allowed to use the Buydebug cheat for the sole purpose of purchasing a satellite to prevent abductions.
  • Cloning is banned.
  • This challenge concludes at Week 3, Day 1, 8 AM.




Scoring
Your score is the Total number of different relics you assembled and activated on your Sim. If you were able to assemble and activate all 27 before Week 3, Day 1, 8 AM then use Lena's Spreadsheet to calculate your time.

Ch-Ch-Changes
The team does not want to edit and make changes to the ruleset once this event goes live, but we may have to. If an exploit is brought to our attention or we discover something else we may ask affected players to redo their effort.

Have Questions?
Please think hard before you ask in the challenge thread because it may be strategy. What you may consider an innocent question could cause another player to go — “oh, I did not think of doing that.” It’s always safer to PM everyone on the team (Metro, MarianT, sdhoey, and LenaLJ) for clarifications. Thanks.

And the Winner is...
After this event has closed everyone is encouraged to discuss how they approached the event, but the winner is expected to do so in detail.

Oh This sounds good. Just so you know, Lena's spreadsheet is giving an error message.  Thanks :)

  • This challenge concludes at Week 3, Day 1, 8 AM.


A slight change in when you will stop this challenge file (and all future challenge files)...

@reggikko  brought to the team's attention that she has seen some minor variation in days for a Sim to age up. Lena also did some testing and saw this as well, so we need to have everyone playing the same amount of time. What we decided to do is basically two full weeks of gameplay, so it won't matter anymore if you start your file and age up to Adult in 10 days, 11 days, or 12 days. You'll stop your file at exactly Week 3, Day 1, 8 AM.

How can you tell when it's Week 3? Do you just keep track yourself?

If you have Seasons and start a 28-day season on the 1st of Spring, it's the 15th of Spring. If your seasons are 14 days long, and you start on the 1st of Spring, it's the 1st of Summer, and if you're using 7-day seasons, it's the 1st of Fall.

Would just opening up the Household Calendar window be easier?

When you have the rule of no cloning -- that means no duplicates - correct? So no having several Totecalium Watcher Relics with the common stone, but you could have one Totecalium Watcher Relic with the common stone, the second Totecalium Watcher Relic with the uncommon stone and finally a Totecalium Watcher Relic with the rare stone. Would that be correct? Thanks :)

Yes, that's fine. But "no cloning" refers to the cloning machine that you can get as part of the Science career. You can't use that to turn your 1 rare crystal into 9, etc.

Ok, understand about the cloning. So are you permitted to have duplicate relics or not? Thanks :)

My Sim assembled and activated 18 different relics on himself.

I had some unbelievably bad luck with a couple of things that I'll discuss when the challenge is over. Overall, this was a really fun challenge because I've never done much with the relics.

@SoulGal7  There are 27 potential relic combinations. Each one may only be counted once.
