The Highlander Crest: A legacy-ish game play challenge

Your sim lives through 10 generations.

This should work for Sims 2, Sims 3 and Sims 4   B)

This is simple. Your founder sim has been blessed....or cursed...with his/her family's secret. Once every 100 generations a sim is destined to live for 10 generations.

On the sim's young adult birthday, he/she mysteriously receives an antique vial, along with a sealed note. This note states that your sim has been born under the "Highlander Crest" and that destiny has chosen him/her to live through the next 10 family generations.

A single drop of liquid from the antique vial must be added to a drink and consumed the day before the day of his/her birth.  

Option One:

Begin a save with a young adult single sim...male or female. Normal lifespan.

Move that sim into a house or empty lot he/she can afford.

Option Two:

You may begin with a child/teen in a current save as long as no money or needs cheats have been used since the beginning of the save. On the teen's young adult birthday the "Highlander Crest" begins. Normal lifespan.



*Live life as normal. Work. Marry. Conceive children or adopt. Your "Highlander" Sim living through 10 generations is the goal of this challenge. Have your "Highlander" produce at least one child. If your "Highlander" has more than one offspring you can choose which ever child you want as heir. This child will then have the next generation and then so on. The Highlander must stay in the household the entire challenge.

The Highlander can continue to marry and produce offspring throughout the challenge.

*On the day before your sims adult birthday drink a youth potion. Use any object to mark the consumption of the potion and place it somewhere on your lot (this will be your reminder).

*Youth potion points may be earned by anyone in the current household and the drink purchased and transferred to the inventory of the "Highlander". You may switch between aspirations at anytime to earn as many points as possible.

*If you miss drinking the potion before the adult birthday:

1.You must move your household to an empty lot (when moving tick the button to sell furniture).

2.Sell all of your personal inventory items for each household member.

3.Then use money cheats to reduce the household funds to zero simoleons.  This is the penalty for forgetting to drink your concoction.

Cheat codes:
“Money ###”–Set’s funds to exact number
“Sims.modify_funds +/-###” –Adds or subtracts value from current funds

*Continue to rebuild your family's life.

*If you miss drinking the concoction before your elder birthday, repeat the previous penalty.

*If your "Highlander" dies for any reason the challenge is over and your sim is branded "Hopeless Highlander". The family's legacy will be shamed for eternity.

You may:

Have a spouse: You must marry before moving them into the household.

Move members of the household out or keep them. Only 8 household members are allowed at one time. To be clear, you may not move out your founder.

Move to a different lot (without enforcing the above penalty).

You may not:

Use any Money or Needs Cheats

Have Roommates. Only family members are allowed, who of course are sworn to secrecy about the "Highlander Crest".

Use any Mods that would give your Highlander an advantage.

Now for the points:

There are none. I do not like point keeping.

If you make a founder or story please share. Use the hashtag #thehighlandercrestchallenge

    @Buttonsginger For some odd reason my screenshots are not showing up. Not even a folder. Quit and hit repair game and Origin crashed while I was repairing my game. It should be sorted now. Will post my Highlander pictures another day.

    This sounds a fun challenge but there's something that's puzzling me (bear with me, I'm pre-coffee this morning...): Does your 'Cursed Highlander' Sim just keep on hooking up with a new Sim (and having a family) once per generation (and waiting for the spouse and kids to die off) so in effect there are no 'heirs' ever, or does the cursed Sim start off the legacy and one of his/her kids becomes the heir to the next generation, and so on, and the 'cursed' Sim just lives on with the all various 'heirs' over the generations? If that makes sense!
  • BUTTONSGINGERBUTTONSGINGER Posts: 5,485 Member
    @EuphorialQueen I am so excited that you chose Valeda to be your "immortal" for this challenge. She is as stunning as she is versatile! I can't wait to see your story thread soon <3

    @loubyloulou You can play it however you'd like. Your Sim can either keep producing offspring or be the "Aunt/Uncle/Cousin/etc" that never goes away....or ages ;) The Highlander Sim living through this challenge is the goal so I guess, he/she is the official heir in this challenge. That's why I think it's only a "Legacy-ish" Challenge.

    Can we keep the money a Spouse brings if any?
  • BUTTONSGINGERBUTTONSGINGER Posts: 5,485 Member
    @EuphorialQueen Yes, you can. This challenge isn't about money. As little or as much earned is okay.

    I will definitely be sharing I'm looking forward to starting I already have a sim in mind (She's just been sitting in my library waiting for a worthy challenge). Between this and my 2 legacy games I will be busy. :D ( I'm also planning on doing the Rosebud challenge my Simself has been given a makeover and is just itching to start)

    My youngest is starting school tomorrow so I have all these plans for filling my few hours of free time (Simming is only one of them) but i fear i'll just be stuck catching up on the housework as he's only going to be at school for 3 days. My little tornado, It's amazing the amount of mess children can make in the short time between breakfast and heading out the door before school. :D


  • BUTTONSGINGERBUTTONSGINGER Posts: 5,485 Member
    @loubyloulou You are most welcome :)

    @Charliimai I can't wait to see your Highlander! LOL....I know what you mean, little free time and little ones making messes...along with a few big ones adding to the mess :open_mouth:

    The Quickening - A Highlander Challenge Report by EuphorialQueen
    Introduction:
    It was the eve of the Blood Moon and the sky was bright with the ember glow. Valeda was getting ready to celebrate her birthday when The Watchers appeared to announce her fate. It was time to claim her heritage as The One.
    blood-10.jpg
    All her life she had been told she was 'special'. But it was not until the day before her transition from teen to adult that she would learn the whole story. She had been out walking in the woods as was her routine. She loved the cool breezes and the scents of the trees and wild flowers. The woodland creatures accepted her presence and let her get quite near. She was not surprised to hear the rustle of movement nearby. She then realized the sound had been following her and she hid behind a large tree to get a glimpse of what or who it could be. She heard her name being called softly as the three shadowy figures stepped into the clearing.
