Jace Legacy, the head honcho, the one they’ll never forget. This blog will document the life and times of Jace and his family through ten generations. Started September 27th, 2016.

Why am I doing the Legacy Challenge?

I have been playing the Sims games since The Sims Livin’ Large (yes, I missed out on being the ultimate fan by one game). Since then I have played every version (Sims 1-4) as well as every expansion and stuff pack. By the time Sims 4 came around, I started getting bored and losing interest. I decided to take up this challenge (and others in the future) in order to rekindle my love for the game.

About the Challenge:

If you are interested in completing your own challenge, the rules can be found here, followed by subsequent links for points, scoring, FAQs, etc. In a nutshell, you are basically starting out with nothing but $1,800. You have to build your family and empire on nothing but that. I’ve decided to keep score (which will be on a different post) and will be using Hilliee’s score sheet to keep up.

Laws of Succession:

  • Gender Law: Strict Equality; This means that both male and female sims may become heirs. However, each heir must be the opposite sex of the previous heir/founder. For example, I’m starting out with Jace, a male, and his heir will be a female, and her heir will be a male, and so on and so on.
  • Bloodline Law: Strict Traditional; This means that the heir must be a naturally born child from the previous generation parents and be able to trace an unbroken bloodline back to the family founder. Adopted children may not become heirs.
  • Heir Law: Last Born; The youngest, by order of joining the family, eligible living child is named heir.
  • Species Law: Tolerant; The species of the child has no impact on their eligibility for heir status.
