Congratulations! :::throws confetti:::

I was just about to turn off my light and go to sleep when I saw you had updated. Hopefully, I won’t be too far behind you!

Well done! Elwyn got those requirements done in no time, and with almost no help. I’d feel sorry for him, but he’s known Cristal so long that he ought to have known what he was getting into. Him rushing to complete the last pumpkin was so funny!

Now that you’ve finished, may I ask how much you planned from the beginning? Did you know each heir’s unique skill and career?

Wow, excitement right to the end!  Cristal sabotaging the party, Mocha's unexpected illness...craziness!  Still, way better than game glitching nonsense and such that could have caused more crippling drama!
Congratulations, my friend, on being the first to finish a Po10!!  Of course, the rest of us who are trying this dynasty also want to offer thanks for showing us how it's done  ;=)  Definitely going to steal borrow all the inspiration I can from this  ;=)
Can't wait to see what challenge you take on next!

@reggikko
You are extremely good at avoiding unnecessary skilling and other time-consumers while playing your P10, which makes your progress very fast.
With enough free time, I imagine you could be done in another 2 weeks or so.   2.5 weeks for 3 generations?   ;)
And The Triumphant Pankcakes tournament challenge providing added incentive?

Elwyn was the only heir with an only child, too, so--in addition to all the adult parties--he also barely earned gold for the toddler play date.
Cristal was not helpful at parties but her gardening and childcare meant that Elwyn could focus on his requirements. Honestly, she was quite a funny, unpredictable sim to play.

As for planning, I had a personal rule of only visiting worlds where the current or previous dynasty households lived (as I mentioned recently, I think), with an exception for Sulani.
So I started with my favorite world, Oasis Springs, then initially planned the sequence of worlds the heirs would move, ending with Strangerville, based on what amenities/community lots each world offered.
That's why the second generation moved to San Myshuno for the festivals, Art Gallery, and produce stall.
I pushed Sulani/Glimmerbrook toward the end because I was unfamiliar with Island Living/Realm of Magic gameplay.
Then, I decided on collections with thought to what each world offered or the lot size available.
Finally, I chose the career + unique skill combo based mostly on that generation's collection.
If a world didn't suggest a unique collection, then I chose a career/skill combo that seemed to make sense for that heir's "personality/traits."
Haha, that was probably way more detail than you'd wanted.  But, there it is.  All planned out using LenaLJ's spreadsheet from the start.

@PeregrineTook

I just had to check how that "Request a carved pumpkin" social worked for a Spooky Party and quickly learned that it didn't, at least for my sims.
Once a guest abandons their unfinished pumpkin, my hosts cannot ask them to finish it, haha. And a host cannot resume carving another sim's unfinished pumpkin, either.
I had the child sim running around doing some of the other party tasks (Request Party Treat 0/2 and Perform Mischief social 0/3).
I'd always waited until my heir's twins aged up to teens and had them carve the pumpkins. Still the easiest route, in my book!

Of course, Mocha has to age up and get sick right before the challenge ends. 
But the Tiny House offers an insane skilling boost! Elwyn got to Vet 5 from treating Mocha just once!
But I'd say some skills are boosted more by a Micro/Tiny House than others. Elwyn took much longer than 2 sim-hours to reach Video Gaming 5.
Borrow away, Pippin. Sharing is caring, right?  Which reminds me that I need to finish my Sharebears Legacy.

For my next challenge, I'll be jumping on @reggikko 's bandwagon, so whatever she does next, that's what I'll be doing.  ;D

Oh my hat. Congrats. I'm just catching up now and I see all that amazing micro-housing-ness in StrangerVille. Such a cool house. I'm glad you got a screenshot of the Legacy Player achievement. :) I'm unlikely to see that. Unless my Eugenics II house gets it.

So many interesting sims along the way. And interesting houses. And spouse hunts. And red hair!

Various Forum Adventures:

The Dynasty of Original Townies Dynasty
Vlad's Nose story
Sims Eugenics II - the big chateau one
Vacuous Green house (I totes like this one)
Island Living Beachfront Mansion

It is a little thing of my own. I call it "Heart Foam". I shall not publish it. Farewell! Patience, Patience, farewell!

Exit Bunthorne.

Thank so much! I'm absolutely enamored of building tiny houses now.
I'd gotten into a rut making houses with their "mandatory" focused and inspiration rooms, but the Tiny Living skill gain boost makes such rooms superfluous.
The Power of 10 is no doubt my favorite of this forum's dynasty challenges!

Haha, I'd never gotten the Legacy Player achievement before, either, since the Pinstar Legacy challenge ends with the birth of the 10th-generation heir.
Thanks to the birth of Marlon, I now know that the Legacy Player achievement only pops up with the birth of the 11th-generation heir.
