Welcome to my SECOND Sims 3 legacy! I spent over a year and a half following the Halliwell family, documenting their dramatic, and turbulent life. I found the experience so amusing, and enriching, I decided to do it all over again!
You can visit, and read my first legacy here: The Halliwell Legacy
The Sims 3 Legacy Challenge is a long, 10-generation challenge where you start out with a single founder with very humble beginnings and try to lead the family to fame, fortune and success over the course of 10 generations. This challenge was created by an amazing simmer, Pinstar. Pinstar also created this challenge for the Sims 2, and converted the rules to fit the style of the Sims 3. His creation enabled so many simmers around the world to enjoy the game on a different, more interesting level.
I will not be following the traditional rules of a legacy challenge, for the sake of the story. However, I will be following two rules that are different from my previous legacy:
- I am not following a matriarchy; both male and female sims can be heir
- I will also follow an alphabetical naming scheme
