Ha!  Another question.   My angler supermaxed his fishing.  But I still need 4 more opportunities, can he quit his job and get a new one and hope more opportinities come quick?


Yes, he can.  In fact, that's a popular strategy.  Just make sure that he doesn't get to level 10 if you want an heir down the line to max the same career.

Welcome to the forum, Roo and Daemo. :) It's great to see new players jump onboard the Dynasty events.

I'll be getting Pets today and am excited to see how players incorporate the new content into their games/stories.

Just look at it in relation to other best friends.

If the relationship bar is maxed don't worry about it. When in doubt open the Relationship tab and see where the Old Friend falls in line with the friends to the left and right and see what strength those are. If an Old Friend falls between 2 Good Friends then you know that the Old Friends' strength is not high enough for Best Friend.

Ahhh!

So, I was in a hurry to get married so i grabbed the next girl I saw on the street because i only had 4 days left until i became an elder.

I won the girl over and quickly had a private ceremony.  I chose to move in with her.  We arrived and the house she lives in is the house my first heir owned.  Does this mean I just failed at this challenge?

If the person who could move out was a male, then you didn't really have to rush.  Only females can't have children after their elders.  Just so you know.

I thought it was heirs have to be at least in the adult lifestage.  Not that they could only move when they're an adult.

I interpret the rule as "if your heir is any life stage other than Adult, they may not move out".

8. The heir must be in the Adult life stage.

Nope. If that were the case the wording would indeed include at least. But, those words are not there. So, think about someone moving out as a Young Adult and then read the rule.

Well that's my Homer Simpson moment of the week.  I'm so sorry to confuse anyone with what I said and thank you for the clarification to my thinking Sportsfan and Metro.   Time to scrap the side project again.  Whoops.


Can collecting minor pets be considered one of the collections or could you break it down farther by saying birds = 1, rodents =2?

Sorry Daemo, I missed your original post. No, you're fine. There's no rule stating you cannot live in a given house more than once. As long as all the moving requirements are met for any move, then you're fine. Chances are it would be rare, but you never know where townies end up.

I'm assuming that if you can have a pet as a best friend in Immortal Dynasty, you can in this challenge, too. My next question is, if you make friends with a stray or wild horse, will that count as an NPC?

On a non-related issue, can my heir give a Young Again potion to his wife (who is a non-heir) if she's an elder by the time they get married?

Marian,the rules state.
1. Anything that lengthens life for heirs is forbidden—eating Life Fruit, Ambrosia, make-overs, tattoos, and drinking from Leon's Fountain of Youth (Hidden Springs). Non-heirs have no life-extending restrictions. Once your firstborn makes an appearance and becomes the active heir, you’re free to extend the life of the former heir.

So you are fine to give the heirs wife a young again potion.

Definitely.

My next question is, if you make friends with a stray or wild horse, will that count as an NPC?

From what I'm gathering in the initial threads, it is not an easy task by any means, so I do not see why not. I guess the question I have for you and everyone else though is — unless you adopt the wild animal and they become a household member, would you know if it is alive and "available?" I mean, how do you get in touch? Lol.

Hadn't thought about that -- invite it to a party? unlock the gate to your garden?

That's because you have to invite the NPCs to your house, not just make friends with them.  Right?

Actually, no. You just need to be friends with the NPCs at moving time.
