So let me see if I have this straight in my head.

We start of with a single townie.

Heh. Well, I need you stop you already. No, you start with any household that does not have a child.

Would Zelda Mae count for this seeing as she is single but lives in a house with children.

The household must not have children.

Then the heir has to complete several requirements before he or she can marry. Obviously we have to make sure that our heirs always marry townies and not NPCS.
The family makes a collection which we add up the value of before we leave that household.
I am assuming the heir has to be born by natural means but are the founder and spouse or heir and spouse allowed to adopt further children.

Yes.

Then after ten generations we add up the value of all the collections take a picture of the final heir with the final collection and post our scores.

You got it.

My final question can I write a story about my decadynasty.

Of course.

A household without a child so does that mean we could start of with the Wolffs and make them have a child together or would we have to make them break up and have Morganna marry again.
Also could we use the roomies household and have Stiles and Emma have a child for example.

No, definitely not.

Yeah, I think that would be fine. Emma is not pregnant in the beginning, right?

No, definitely not.


So it has to be a household with unmarried Sims with no children.

Hey, you're welcome, Chronic. It will be a long journey for all DecaDynasty players. I'm looking forward to the eventual stories (and writing my own idiotic spin on this event).

Love this idea. just my speed- complex, but not frenzied. I rarely stick with legacies past the first few generations, and haven't tried a dynasty from here. was thinking of forcing myself to do the immortal dynasty, but this sounds way more fun to me.

One final question for now anyway. In the case of the heir being twins or triplets is the first born the heir or can we choose.

No. The no children part is the key. But, single or married is okay.

During the challenge, I can move out, from the current household, any sim that get on my nerves (since we can't kill them off on purpose ::) )?

While the mom and dad must be residing in the same household when trying for baby, do they have to remain together afterwards?  Or can one parent get kicked to the curb if they get too irritating?

I think you missed my post earlier.  :)

Another Question - Can other Sims in the Household have Children and can the Parents/Heir and Spouse have more than One child, other than the heir?

ratchie, your answer is...

2. The first named child born into a new house is your DecaDynasty heir.

During the challenge, I can move out, from the current household, any sim that get on my nerves (since we can't kill them off on purpose ::) )?

Yep. You just can't move out the heir (obviously).

While the mom and dad must be residing in the same household when trying for baby, do they have to remain together afterwards?  Or can one parent get kicked to the curb if they get too irritating?

Yeah, that's fine if you want to give one of them the boot after the heir is born.

The Knacks do not qualify. Their child is living with them.

Yes to both questions.

So a household that includes a single Elder man and his single YA daughter would not qualify?  Since the YA daughter would be the mom of the heir?

Attempt Number 4 then. Oh well I'll just chose the Wolfe guy and then have him marry her that way, oh well, Just got it the wrong way around. Thanks about the Kids Questions as well!  :)

Basically what you're saying Metro is that when you say a household that does not have children.  You mean children not just in age but you mean period.  So no household where there are multiple generations?

Technically, yes, that household would not qualify because you're choosing a household with children.

EDIT: Ricalynn, that's exactly what I mean.

Moving to an empty lot just does not fit in with the whole Townie theme. You should be required to move into another Townie's home, so I'll clarify that.
Do you mean we are required to move into an already occupied townie home? Or just any house that already exists?

The rules state that you move into a Townie home. That means occupied.

OK, so the starting household has to have no "children" but when the heir moves out can they marry a spouse that still lives with parents?  So the "no child in the household" rule only applies to the starting family?  Or when the heir moves out to live with their spouse, they need to choose a single spouse already living alone?

I'm starting a Story on the Challenge, I'm just checking but do I post in the Dynasty Story Board? It's called the Wolfe-Knack Townie DecaDynasty, in reference to the two Original Townie Parents. Is that okay?

Lol can hardly post in this Thread!  :D

Ok I've never done a dynasty of either kind before (is that weird?) I've wanted to try it, but always been swarmed with other stuff like school. I think I might actually try this one though. Just to give it a chance if nothing else.

Correct. Once the first heir moves out they're free to move into a house with multiple generations.

Yes, DecaDynasty stories go into the Dynasty board.
