Default Rebuild The Tribe Challenge
Rebuild the tribe. A generational challenge.

Nevaeh watched as the round ears (humans) killed her whole family. They laughed as they killed her father. Her mother's scream still echoes in her mind, and the cries of the young ones haunt her nightmares. She watched as they stole her older sister Alanya, and then they left. Too young to be alone, but that is what she was, alone. Left with nothing but the smoldering ashes of what was left of her people, and a wave of raging anger to keep her company.

******

(Several years later)
Nevaeh can still taste the ashes of the burning huts in her mouth. She survived, alone, and it fostered in her a bitter hatred for the round ears. Deeper into the forest she forged as she grew older and stronger. She hunted and built a small village on the ruins of the old one. Farming came next, and fishing always kept her aching stomach filled, for a while. Her life is loneliness, and hardship when she spotted a dirty figure looting her hut. She pounced on it and turned the figure over. The stranger has a familiar, but dirty face. "Alanya" Nevaeh cries completely shocked. Alanya wiggles away, and hunches down in a corner. "It's me Nevaeh!" She looks at you and tilts her head sideways. She has this sort of strange, and wild look on her face. Then she lunges at you and hugs you. "Is it really you?" she says. Despite how skinny she looks when you hug her body it is round, and you push her back to reveal a large pregnant stomach. "Your pregnant" Nevaeh says. Her voice trailing off as she looks at her long lost sister's face. Her mind turning to the horrors she might have endured. Nevaeh hugs Alanya tightly, and says "Welcome home, sister."

Alanya's Story:
She grew up around round ears and tends to look more human. Hiding her elf ears, and dressing more like she is a human. She lived with the round ears for many years, and they suppressed her elven instincts. She was also treated very badly by humans, and because of this, she acts like a child. Simple tasks are hard for her. She spends most of her day painting, wondering the woods, singing, and playing a banged-up violin that was a gift from a kind man. (or so she says)
Nevaeh can do little to get Alanya to engage in daily tasks and simple choirs. Whenever Nevaeh gets angry or frustrated with Alanya, Alanya will disappear into the woods for several days or even weeks. Nevaeh worries for her, but every time she takes off she returns. Alanya sings to her unborn children in human when she thinks Nevaeh isn't listening. She has a child-like wonder in the way she looks at the forest and its wonders. Nevaeh tends to look through heavily jaded eyes. She has seen many years full of hardships and no longer sees the forest as a place of wonder, and comfort as Alanya does.

******

Set up:
1) First, you need two female sims. They need to be young adults and sisters. How you dress them is up to you.
2) This challenge can be on any map. If you use a neighborhood you must empty it out of people and houses.
3) The sisters are elves. You can do anything you want to designate that they are elves. Make their ears pointy or give them colorful hair.
4) Build them a small village with huts, a fishing pond, a kitchen, and anything they may need to survive.
5) Alanya needs to get pregnant soon after you start playing to go along with the story.
6) The sisters are only half-siblings. So make them look different.
7) Make a round ear camp. It can have up to six sims in it. They should be situated at the opposite end of the map from the elf camp. The area can be a village, a hunting camp, or something else. Your choice.
8) Make a hermit. She lives alone on the edge of the forest, but far from the rest of the round ears. She must be an adult.
9) Make sure to include on the elf lot: an easel, violin, room to garden, a workbench, and a pond you can fish at. (frog pond)
Optional:
9) Create one male elf, and put him on a lot somewhere near the hermit.
10) Pick a theme. My challenge is medieval themed.

Goal:
1) The two sisters and their heirs must rebuild the village, and repopulate it.

Rules:
1) You may use money cheats to build the home of the elven tribe but after that no cheats.
2) After you build the elven tribe lot you must reduce their money to 2000. All money after that must come from gathering, painting, gardening, crafting, and fishing (and optional skills).
3) The older sister Alanya must reach skill level 10 in singing, painting, and violin.
4) The younger sister Nevaeh must reach skill level 10 in gardening, fishing, and handiness.
5) Alanya can not help with the garden or go fishing, and she can't level up in handiness or fitness. She can also not cook.
6) Nevaeh's traits must be good, loves outdoors, and vegetarian.
7) Alanya's traits must be childish, squeamish, and romantic.
8) Nevaeh's hate for round ears extends to any human baby born from her or her sister. A pure bloodline must be established, and any baby that is human will be abandoned at the hermits. The hermit is well hidden, and Alayna cannot find her to get the babies back.
9) Human children will not count to the fifty elf tribe members.
10) Each generation must have at least one elf child per sister.
11) Each sister must have an elven heir.
12) Alanya's line is made up of dreamers. The hair must be level 10 in singing, painting, any musical instrument, and dancing.
13) Nevaeh's line is made up of workers. The heir must be level 10 in gardening, fishing, handiness, and fitness.
14) All elf children must go to school. When they get an A you may age them up.
15) Any additional elven children that are not heirs may stay on the lot after aging to young adults, but they must reach level 5 in the skills of their mother's line.
16) When a child is born you must randomly roll 1-20. Alanya is a half-elf, and Nevaeh is full elf so they have different chances of having an elven child.
For Alanya: 1-8 elf 9- 20 human.
For Nevaeh 1-16 elf 17-20 human.
17) Nevaeh hates round ears, and will only bring certain human men into her bed. She will only have children with the men if she gets the 'Deep Connection' buff while talking to them, and they are good friends first.
18) The sisters may not travel out of their neighborhoods. With the exception, if you choose to make the challenge harder (see below).
19) Each pregnancy must be with a different man.
20) The sisters may not share men. With the exception of the male elf. Each sister may have a single turn with him.
21) When cooking meals, you must have all ingredients required in order to do so.
22) The sister's nor their heirs or other children living on the lot may have a job or profession. This goes for all generations.
23) When the total elf population reaches fifty the challenge ends.
Optional:
24) Male Elf:
-Create a male elf who will live alone. What he looks like, and his traits are up to you.
-The Sisters must wait to whoohoo with him until they each have one of their required skills at level 10.
-If Nevaeh has a child with him the child will always be an elf.
-If Alanya has a child with him she needs to get 1-16 of 20 for the child to be an elf.
25) If you want a harder challenge you can have Nevaeh complete the herbalism aspiration. This is on top of the other skills she must master. Nevaeh's line must add this skill to the skills they must master.
- With this, you may travel to Granit Falls once, and you may only stay in the campground. What you buy depends on the amount of money at the time.
- For your one trip, you may stay there as long as you need to get the plants you need to complete the herbalism aspiration. Then you must go home.
26) If you want a harder challenge you can have Nevaeh complete the spell craft and sorcery aspiration. This is on top of the other skills she must master. Nevaeh's line must add this skill to the skills they must master.
-With this, you may travel once to the magic realm. For your trip, you may stay as long as needed, and talk to the three sages. Buy brooms, familiars, potion ingredients, and wands.
-When in the magic realm Nevaeh must complete the magic quest to gain magic.
-Magic was lost to the elves after all the adults where killed. Nevaeh may learn from the round ear sages but after the one trip. She must learn all skills and spells alone. Trying to learn her people's magic. She does this through hard work, failure, and a few scraps of knowledge she can find.
-After Nevaeh masters magic she is the teacher for any and all magically gifted elves in the tribe. Upon her death, her heir takes up the mantel.
27)If you want a harder challenge you can have Nevaeh complete the purveyor of potions aspiration. This is on top of the other skills she must master. Nevaeh's line must add this skill to the skills they must master.
-With this, you may travel once to the magic realm. For your trip, you may stay as long as needed, and talk to the three sages. Buy brooms, familiars, potion ingredients, and wands.
-When in the magic realm Nevaeh must complete the magic quest to gain magic.
-Potion skill was lost to the elves after all the adults where killed. Nevaeh may learn from the round ear sages but after the one trip. She must learn all potion recipes alone. She will do this by using hard work, failure, and a few scraps of knowledge she can find.
-After Nevaeh masters potion skill she is the teacher for any and all magically gifted elves in the tribe. Upon her death, her heir takes up the mantel.
28) If you want to make the challenge easier. You may have one toilet, along with the one skink you can already have.

Notes:
1) You can name the sister's anything you want. I just used the names of my sims to keep them straight.
2) This is a generational challenge. Have as many generations as you need to get to fifty elves in total. This includes the sisters.
3) Besides a fridge, a sink, and a stove you should not have any other items that use electricity on the lot. Unless you choose to make the challenge easier.
4) You may if you wish have aging turned off until you have your first elven baby.
5) You can if you wish you have one sister or both as vampires, but it would make the challenge almost impossible.
6) You may if you wish to make both or either of the sister's aliens.
7) You may if you wish to make both or either of the sister's mermaids.

This is a beta challenge. Please play it, and let me know how it can be better. If you have any questions feel free to ask them.

Default Annika & Jalisa
I was able to find an ear slider that allows for the manipulation of ears in CAS. These ears then become genetic so I didn't have to roll to find out if the kids were elves or not. The sister who was kidnapped is the elder sister, Annika. She is a dark elf with blue eyes and hair. She wears more typical human-type clothing and in the beginning covered her ears most of the time. The younger sister, Jalisa, is prouder of her heritage and appearance. She wears traditional face make-up and wings. She is a light elf with reddish eyes and pink hair. When Annika found her way back to the elvish lands, she was slightly swollen with child. This pregnancy was the result of a rape and the reason she ran away. While living among the humans, she was taunted and prodded. She didn't know why she looked different but she tried her best to look and play the part of her human companions. Finding Jalisa answered all the questions she had concerning her origins. She was home. The only hang-up was that Jalisa would not allow "round ears" to live on Elven lands. Annika knew her baby might not be welcome in her new family. When baby Davin was born with Elven ears, the sisters realized that by wooing human suitors they could rebuild their tribe.

Over the next three seasons, the sisters had a total of 11 children (5 born to Jalisa & 6 born to Annika)

1. Davin, son of Annika
2. Lakshmi Minor, daughter of Jalisa - human
3. Bruno, son of Annika
4. Marlee, daughter of Jalisa
5. Genesis Farley, daughter of Jalisa - human
6. twins Liana & Leath, children of Annika

When Spring rolls back around, the baby boom explodes into action again

11. Luna Moon, daughter of Jalisa - human
12. Chai Shackelford, daughter of Annika - human
13. Zohan Zest, son of Jalisa - human
14. Lake, son of Annika & elf Thiago - elf
15. Robb, son of Jalisa - unknown

1/3 of Annika's children have been human. She has 4 grandchildren (1/1/2).
Davin's children are
1. Leo Killian
2. David
3. Rachelle
4. Giuliana
Bruno's children are
