Yup, that's pretty much right With a Success of 3 and Intelligence 1, his base points are 3, same as his wife. So that gives them a total of six. Subtract 5 for Gregory's motivation, and add 4 for his wife, leaving the family a total of 5 Resource Points. For a farmer I'd implement that by giving the family only 5 garden squares, but another idea is to keep the 20 plots and only let the family care for the garden a set amount of time each day.

In the past I've only tested the system with a couple of households, never a full neighbourhood, so I am totally open to any suggestions you might have for improvement

So another question. If a royal were to fall in love and marry a noble, SHE would take HER husband's status, right?
Like if Royal A married Lord B, she'd lose her status as queen and become Lady B, right?
What would be the punishment? I looked at the rules, but I'm having a slow moment and I don't see anything regarding it.

There is no punishment, if all is sanctioned and aboveboard. And yes, a princess would become a duchess if she married a duke. But that might be exactly what would be right--there are usually not enough princes to go round for all those princesses

Still, not all monarchs are so gracious especially when the illegitimate child is a daughter and there is already an heir produced. Let us know what you decide.


I've decided that I'll put her in the lower end of the gentry.

Huhu^.^

I actually used a lower marriage as punishment for one of the princess' She was actually going to marry her royal cousin but then slept with a member of the gentry. The man's luck was that he was like a brother to the king (princess' half-brother) who didn't like her very much End of story: Princess had to go to convent and marry the gentry member, while her fiance-to-be married her sister

I feel like such a low marriage is - story-wise- punishment enough. Just imagine the humiliation and loss of prestige and comfort

PS: the routation is almost finished And I decided to run my own finishing schools and universities within the neighborhood. Never really liked the university add-on I wrote down which skillpoints they'd need and play accordingly. There was just too much mixup with the ages last time

Edit: I started the next round and came across several interesting situations: First I dislike royal healers, just no fun if there is not the smallest chance of a negative outcome... well, personal opinon.

Then I played a serf family... Wow! First one of my fav (and oldest) sim of the hood died His son (Joseph) lost his wife the same day (stroke loved her too) and he arranged a marriage for his son (Brian). Just after the first child was born Joseph started an affair with Brian's wife Now the son hates his father and wants to divorce his wife, but Joseph wont allow it. Now the girl (Sarina) will spent one season in a convent and Brian the same time in a monastry Maybe the hate between all parties will calm down. The person I feel most sad for is Lizzy, Joseph's mother. She lost her husband, her daughter-in-law, hates her son, her grandson and his wife... All happened within one round and is pretty hard for a family sim

I can't wait to play this family again I think Brian will divorce Sarina even if it'sagainst his father's wishes and thenwill be disowned as heir I am evil

OMG How did I miss this post Yvi-Sama? This is too, too amazing. Wow. I love the family drama and your perspective on it. It would be awesome to have a photo essay of this with your comments thrown in. I laughed out loud just reading about it.
On another note, I'm kinda with you on the Royal Physicians. After seeing several documentaries on royal and hereditary diseases, I'm starting to think those royal physicians are a bit too skilled. Mayhap there should be some things they do have trouble with ... and also, some practices that do not ride so easy on their patients (devilish plotting ....), but that will have to wait. I think, however, it would be interesting to add a few "mystery" diseases, i.e. ones we know about now, but that puzzled doctors in the past. In one of the docu's I saw, there has been quite a lot of research into King George's "madness" and now scientists believe he probably had undiagnosed porphyria, and was not insane at all. His doctors just literally drove him crazy with all the stuff they did which did NOT help. Poor guy. Poor docs.

Meginmd, sounds great! Looking forward to seeing your first chapter.

M3: How hard and fast are these rules? For example, thanks to ACR, I now have a storyline I didn't see myself having. When something similar happened in the 16th century, the fallout wasn't bad; just hurt feelings and anger. Can I "use" punishment as I see fit?
