We all know what a legacy is and what the basic rules are; well this is similar except fewer rules and really fast (and generally random).
This was introduced to me by a couple of friends and we're all having a great deal of fun with it so figured we'd invite the whole of the simming community to join in!
The Premise: It's a 10 generation legacy using your simself as the founder.
The Twist: Use the Short Life Span!
Keep the lifespan on SHORT, though the following break down is recommended:
>Infant= 1 day
>Toddler= 1 day
>Child= 1 day
>Teen= 2 days
>Young Adult= 6 days
>Adult= 5 days
>Elder= 4 days
*Just keep the lifespan on short*
-Your founder must be your simself -You can use any townies or people from your bin as the spouse/other parent.
-You can use any cheats EXCEPT cheats that will help you with obtaining money directly. Money cheats include (but are not limited to) kaching, motherlode, freerealestate, cheating your sim into a higher position on work
-Each generation, a boy and girl must be born
->You cannot edit any of your heirs/spares in CAS unless it is to change their clothing or hairstyle. You can however, age them up.
Note: By aging them up in CAS, you cannot reverse the action, they must stay that age. No eternal youth!
->Adoption isn’t forbidden. But as with normal legacies, you can’t have them as heirs/heiresses.
->Be sure to keep in mind that you have a limited amount of time to have the heir/heiress have children. Use it wisely.
Otherwise, have fun!
Feel free to use this thread to post pictures of your family and progress, ask questions or just have fun. If you post pic spam on a blog or tumblr, you can link that here as well!

FAQs Q: Do I have to start on the 60x60 empty lot like in a regular legacy?
Q: My sims just won't have a girl (or boy) and time is running out! Can I adopt the opposite gender?
A: Yes, the adopted child just can't be the heir(ess); only biological children can inherit the line.
Q: Do I have to stay in one house/keep the founders/heirs all in one house?
A: Nope, your heir can move out on their own, move in with their spouse or grandma and grandpa can retire in Florida - so to speak. Do what you need to do!
Q: Can I edit townies, IFs, foreigners, etc in CAS that are potential mates?
A: Yes, I don't see why not as you could just as easily make your own mate in CAS and plop them in the town. Heirs and Spares are off limits to CAS edits obviously.
Participants! Note: the numbers for this updates do not correspond to chapter/generation/etc. It's just a notation for the number of times that person has posted some variety of update to this thread. As heir votes are fast and furious, most of them have not been linked but I will if you want me to. If you are keeping a family tree and familyecho and want it linked, let me know.

Much thanks to Cami and everyone else who's been joining in such as Shanna and of course Audge ^D^
So far three days have passed, and I've been having too much fun with this. Possibly because we don't have to always write it out, and there's nothing too serious! Just good clean fun. -Granted, me and Audge are a bit competitive as of late- ^u^"
Lyster [left] and Pyce [right]
Pyce is pretty much a carbon copy of me, despite skin tone and hair color.
So naturally, I let..
Lyster be the heiress!
This is Lyster's now-hubby, Tom Vicka. Though her firstborn child isn't his.
Forstch[left], Becqi[middle], and Lylyth[right]
Forstch is the son of another man, though is still considered a candidate, whereas Becqi and Lylyth are Tom's daughters of course.
Though for the sake of genetics -And to hopefully pull ahead of Audge soon-
Becqi became the heiress! Who her hubby will be, well..
