WELCOME TO:
THE HOGWARTS 10 GENERATION LEGACY!

This challenge is based off the Harry Potter books and films. It is designed for the Sims 4 and I have done my best despite the lack of supernatural elements to the current game. Therefore it isn’t 100% accurate bloodlines wise, etc, however each generation does embody fun character tropes and things so I hope you enjoy!

With some generations, you have options of who to choose as your heir and which challenge to complete. You can do both, or pick between the two. Your choice.

(Follow the original legacy challenge rules.)


Generation 1: Muggle “The wizards represent all that the true 'muggle' most fears: They are plainly outcasts and comfortable with being so.”
Which came first the chicken or the egg? Or in this case, the wizard or the muggle? We start with a straight-laced and traditional muggle founder who doesn’t like to think outside the box. When your muggle becomes a young adult, this story begins.
-If female, will be a house-wife / If male, will enter tech guru career track (They are supposed to be stereotypical, you see – so the heir can rebel.)
-Will live in Willow Creek
-Must get married and have at least 1 child
-Must have 1 extra child from a one night stand with a randomer, this child will be your heir
-When the heir becomes a young adult, the parents and heir become worst enemies and the heir is thrown out


Generation 2: Muggle-Born “Mudblood, and proud of it!”
You may have been outcasted from your family but you have found a new world in which you belong. When your muggle-born becomes a young adult, this story begins.
-Must have the ‘goofball’ and/or ‘creative’ traits
-Will move to Oasis Springs
-Make at least three new friends
-Have four children exactly that would all be sorted into different houses (Eg. a Genius for Ravenclaw, Ambitious for Slytherin, etc.)


Generation 3: Gryffindor “You might belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart, their daring, nerve, and chivalry set Gryffindors apart.”
You are the bravest of the bunch and your life’s dream has always been to put the bad guys in their place. This story begins when your Gryffindor becomes a YA.
-Must have self-assured trait
-Must go into the Secret Agent Career on the Diamond Agent branch (Aka – Auror!)
-Will have a red themed bedroom (or house if you wish)
-Must have at least three friends
-Extinguish a fire on the home lot
-Have at least two children
(Optional: Can move back to Willow Creek.)
(Optional 2: Can do each house generation; e.g - the Gyffindor gives birth to a Hufflepuff, then the Hufflepuff to a Ravenclaw and the Ravenclaw to a Slytherin. Just make sure Gen 2 has one from each house still.)

OR

Generation 3: Hufflepuff “You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil.”
You feel it is time to follow your own path and find what it is you want to do with your life. This story begins when your Hufflepuff becomes a YA.

OR

Generation 3: Ravenclaw “Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you’ve a ready mind, where those of wit and learning will always find their kind.”
You are the genius of the family and you aim to learn all you can about the world. This story begins when your Ravenclaw becomes a YA.
-Must have a knowledge aspiration

OR

Generation 3: Slytherin “Or perhaps in Slytherin, you’ll make your real friends, those cunning folks use any means to achieve their ends.”

    Thank you! I love Harry Potter so I wanted to see how a Legacy would work for the series. Glad you enjoyed reading through it, haha.

    I finish a Harry Potter movie marathon, go on the forums, and find this! I love this idea, I might try it :)

    I love harry potter and legacy challenges! I am so going to do this one! You came up with some really good stuff for each generation! Thanks for the great idea :)

    I am a huge potterhead, and I love how much effort you put into this. What house are you in? Im a Hufflepuff! I might want to try this out! :)
  • simblisssimbliss Posts: 82 Member
    I was a bit skeptical at first since the Sims 4 doesn't have all that many options but this actually seems pretty cool! If I had the Sims 4 I might try it but sadly I don't yet :c It's impressive how many options you've made!

    Great Challenge! I have Sims 3, so I will have too change it around a bit. Also, instead of finding a jewel for the "Golden Egg" I'm going to find furniture or something that looks like an egg, then colour it gold. :) I love Harry Potter, and this challenge is amazingly done!

    Getting started on a whole new Harry Potter Legacy! I'm starting off where the book ended (with flashbacks in-between) in 2017. Everyone is living happily ever after - or so we thought. Harry's new Auror assignment forces him and his family to move to the Muggle world for safety concerns. Hermione and Ron tag along with their children as Hermione is interested in learning how to push both the Muggle and Wizard world together, and takes Harry moving as a opportunity. Draco and his family are also along for the ride, as we assume that he just likes shoving his money-filled privilege in Harry's face. Other families begin to follow suit, as both Luna and Neville don't want to necessarily be in the wizarding world if their friends aren't with them.

    This isn't the only surprise to come, as there are many, so stay tuned!

    OMG how am I just finding this? (Or if I found this before how did I forget?!)
    Aaaanyway - I've been looking for something to spice up one of my current legacies (kinda switching from one I'm not feeling) and I love some of these generations. I'm definitley using this. I love to mash up challenges so it won't be totally straight forward but I love the flow of these (a few def give me story ideas to keep things interesting in my LPs). Thanks for making this!

    @Chessiechuu;805519"

    Brilliant challenge and well detailed. I love how you included a 'House Elf' generation. Sometimes I feel like a house elf in real life since I do most of the cooking and cleaning. I can just imaging the Malfoys in the muggle world too. :D
  • TheseareourlivesTheseareourlives Posts: 126 Member
    @Chessiechuu

    I was just reading through this challenge again! I can't wait to try it! I especially like how you've included options for the different generations. I think you're the first person I've ever seen do this, but it makes sense. It makes the rigidness of a legacy challenge somehow flexible and fun!

    Would it be rude of me to ask if you would check out my latest challenge, "Wizards in the Muggle World?" Like you, I had difficulty at first imagining how magic could be incorporated into the Sims 4, then I was struck by a great idea. http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/906019/wizards-in-the-muggle-world-challenge#latest

    Mine dress normal (since we don't have magic) but I have the Harry Potter traits mod in my game so it's kinda fun having those. LOL!
