OK, now I am confused.  Can my heir count his brother as a best friend?

Yes. All you have to do at moving time for an heir is count up Best Friends for all household members. Don't worry about whether or not Best Friends are related.

Great, Thanks!

That's like the only rule that I got immediately and it seems its being turned into an cryptic mission. 10 BEST friends total per house hold before hier moves out. And 10 NPC friends. NPC can be best friends and can count towards 10 BFF's. I think I got that right?

As for my DecaDynasty. I have only managed to get through the 1st day. I've been so tired with work. How often to people post their stories. Should I be doing it daily?

Obviously, that's a personal choice. It's not a race. I have not posted in quite a while because I've been catching up with challenge stuff. I just finished the Photography event, but now I need to dive into Baby Boomer.

I do mine when I want to play them because I have two other main stories which have been going for longer and I like those families more.

The NPC friendship requirement and all other requirements need to be true at moving time.

The way that I read this rule was that you only need to attain friend status - once you have completed that you are free to let the friendship decay.  Could you clarify this in the rules please?  Just in case anyone else reads it the same way (although it was probably just me :D).   Thanks.

You know you're right. The NPC one is not clear compared to the Best Friend rule...

3. The household must have 10 different Best Friends at moving time.

I'll make the edit now. Thank you.

Thanks Metro!

Sorry to be a pest, but did you make a decision on the Imaginary Friend?  (If you did I can't find it, sorry) Are we allow to make them real and let them take up a slot in the Household or not?  (I'm referring to Additional Rules #2).  Thanks again :)

I'm embarrassed to admit, but I cannot remember myself. Lol. A strict interpretation on that rule leads me to believe that I would say no.

I am not sure why you wouldn't allow it if you are allowing adoption.  I made mine real and she ages just like everyone else (Her age is tied to the child who's imaginary friend she was).  She is currently married to one of the brothers and will be moving out as soon as he grows enough life fruit for the heir's Simbot opportunity.

Okay, fine by me. It makes sense. I will make the Imaginary Friend clear in the rules. Sorry for the flip-flopping.

---------

EDIT: I ended up rewriting that rule and also allowing household members to be ghosts. Given all the testing that Chronic did in the Immortal Dynasty, he convinced me that there is absolutely no lifespan differences with ghosts. Others have also confirmed this. Here's the rule now:

2. No household member can be a vampire, mummy, or SimBot. However, Imaginary Friends are allowed to become household members. You're also allowed to have ghosts as household members.

Thanks for the clarification.  My first heir is getting close to making his first move, hopefully one more game week he will be ready to go.

I think that's equal parts ew and awesome... so does that mean you could start with agnes on her own and have a ghost baby as your first heir?

I think I didn't word that correctly. If this ever happens, this will be Agnes' fourth kid already. She has three with her current roommate/husband Chris. ;D

I wonder how many people have chosen chris to start their dynasty with? There really is a lack of eligible single men in Sunset Valley - I think I remember people having that problem in the crazy 8s challenge last year - they'd started with a female character and were exclusively straight so they had real trouble getting those 8 romantic interests. Not only are there loads more single women, most of them have at least 1 trait that makes them easy pickings. (hopeless romantic, snob, flirty)

If your first heir was a ghost baby, would all their heirs be ghosts or would some of them be human? (slight tangent I know but I've never try for baby with a ghost... or a mummy or a vampire for that matter)

If we start with a single woman that lives by herself, then can she break someone up with their spouse and a have a child with them?
For example, could Emma Hatch break up Thornton and Morgana and then have a child with Thornton?

Just abide by all the rules — i.e. Thornton and Emma would need to live under the same roof.

Got it - I was meant to write that they would be living under the same roof. I'm trying to think of potential starting townies for when I begin this challenge.

Double checking: It is okay to use the Frio household to start because Claire and Jared's child is (unborn) with Claire and her household correct?

I know we cannot use Claire, but I didn't see this addressed while back reading (may have missed it)

Well, you still can't have Claire move in and have her unborn child become the heir. Heirs need to be the result of Try For Baby of two Sims living together.
