  • Odd jobs do not have to be unique.
  • For vampire powers that have tiers, each tier counts as a power.

This feels like exactly my type of thing, even though I never play alternate life states.

Practice file time!
----------
Played around with it a bit (ok, a lot) today.
I think there are only 15 potions.  Also, I'm not sure how to count the astronaut missions.

For the Vampire powers with tiers (e.g., "Occult Student," "Occult Disciple," "Occult Master.") is that 3 powers or just one?

Each level/tier counts as a power, so those would be 3 powers.

There are 15 plus one more which appears when you fail to make a worthy potion.

Also, I'm not sure how to count the astronaut missions.

When the mission starts and you get the first chance card, there is a title of the mission. So just write down the ones you've stumbled upon.

- Can we use Rally the Troops?
- Can we drink the Potion of Plentiful Needs?
- Can we use the Wishing Well?
- Is a space mission considered complete just when the ship lands back, no matter the result and the amount of steps we went through?
- Do completed Odd Jobs have to be unique?

Unless Teresa jumps in and disagrees with me, @Nikitachi I will say yes to all of your questions except for the odd jobs. We're keeping the bans to a minimum in this event. So, if you do not see something banned, assume you're good to go. But, asking is still not a bad idea. We could decide to make a change this week.

Two questions about the collections:
- Is the Mermaid the only sim who's allowed to search for collection items, or can the other sims help too?
- Once an item is collected, does it have to stay till the end of the game, or can it be sold/used?

Sounds fun I've never played with a mermaid before so that should be fun.

Yes the mermaid is the only allowed to search for collectibles.
Yes the collection needs to stay until the end of the challenge.

Each sim must complete their own goals.

Just to make sure for myself and everyone else: is the Alien prohibited to use anyone's help when building the Rocket (both the playable sims and the townies?)
