This is the mirror image of The Matriarch Legacy Ruleset, but I reverse the genders. Instead of having matriarchs, you have patriarchs. :)

The idea of the Patriarch Legacy is to make the challenge both easier and harder at the same time.

It's easier in that the player is managing less Sims. It's harder in that the player lacks the aforementioned Sims income potential and child rearing assistance.

So it's simple ... a male founder procreates with a townie or NPC until he gets a male heir. When the male heir is born, the female can either leave the lot or give birth to a second heir. If the second child is a daughter, then the male must divorce the female, allow the female to leave the lot, and marry another female. In heir polls, to make it simpler on everybody, you can only include heirs of the male gender. This is a Patriarchy, remember?

The alternate -- and somewhat easier -- version of the male heir issue is to download the Pregnancy for all Genders hack by twojeffs. This will allow for same sex relationships for males and females.

So I leave it up to the individual player. If they want to do it sans hacks, then they have to try the alien way. The game, by default, only allows male pregnancies. The best bet is to keep trying for a male heir.

Other than that, the rules set are the same as the one set forth by Pinstar, and the player should follow whatever rules set is appropriate for the expansion pack(s) the player has. This rules set can easily be rolled into one of the 'alternate' rules sets, such as the Alphabet Legacy invented here at, the Apocalypse challenge, an Uglacy, etc.

So, what are you waiting for? Lets get started!

*Please give any questions, comments, and concerns about this legacy challenge if you are having trouble in starting or running it. :)
