I have read many challenges and I don't think this is copying any old ones. I edited this for clarity and to add a few a few more things.

Backstory:
Sunset Valley, and all of the other towns, have been taken over by a new government. This government runs the towns in a caste like system. You and your significant other just moved here, and have been assigned your new castes. (Note: the higher castes are better) The castes are defined like this:

1. Businessperson, unemployed, politician - also children of the super-rich
Can own anything.
Can go to all locations.

2. Performance artist, actor
Can go to all locations.
Can buy anything but pools.

3. Police officer, firefighter, doctor
Can go to all locations.
Can buy anything but pools, hot tubs, or items over $6,000 in value.

4. Journalist
Can go to all locations but public pools.
No birth control(sims can't woohoo only try for baby/risky woohoo or use dice, see rolls below)
Cannot own pools, hot tubs, items over $5,000 in value, or electronics other than computers, stereos, video game consoles and T.V.ís.

5. Scientist, inventor, alchemist
Can go to all locations but pools and clubs.
No birth control
Cannot own pools, hot tubs, items over $4,000 in value, or electronics other than T.V.ís, TV based consoles, and stereos.

6. Artist, musician
Can go to all locations but pools, libraries, and clubs except in the event of a band gig play in them.
No birth control.
Cannot own pools, hot tubs, items over $4,000 in value, or caste five hobby objects (such as inventing table, science thing, etc.)

7. Babysitter, cook
Can go to all locations but pools, clubs, art galleries, and libraries.
No birth control.
Cannot own pools, hot tubs, items over $3,000 in value, caste five hobby items, or art supplies.

8. Athlete
Can go to all locations but pools, clubs, art galleries, and libraries; once a week can go to grocery store, and bookstore.
No birth control.
Cannot own pools, hot tubs, items over $2,000 dollars in value, caste five hobby items, art supplies, or toys.

9. Unemployed, criminal, part time job
All locations but pools, clubs, art galleries, bookstore** and libraries; once a week can go to grocery store**
No birth control
Cannot own pools, hot tubs, items over $2,000 dollars in value, caste five hobby items, art supplies, or toys.
No houses, only tents and other makeshift shelters.
**unless they work there.
Marriage
All castes are allowed to marry and date if the two people who want to marry or have a romantic relationship are less than two castes apart, there are no questions asked, flirt away :rofl: ! If there are more than two levels between the two, you must roll a six sided dice(a good site is https://www.random.org/dice/). If the number is from 1-4 your sims attentions were unaccepted and they are thrown down to caste 9. If you get a five or six, you can continue, flirt away :rofl: .

Rolling for birth control
Because the base rate of success for the "try for a baby" interaction is so high, feel free to use this system so you don't end up with hundreds of children. Before you direct your sims to... ummm.... get down to business ;) roll a ten sided dice. If you use nraas woohooer, 1-5 normal woohoo, 6-9 risky woohoo, 10 try for a baby. If not, 1-8 normal woohoo, and 9-10.

I hope this is a fun challenge, and feel free to modify the caste rules. Have fun, and post pics! Happy Simming :lol:

I'm just asking, did you get this from the Selection Series? Also, can I choose any Caste I want? How do you move up a Caste? Do you marry up into that Caste, and how do you tell what Caste that person is in? I know I have a lot of questions, but please tell me!

Yes I did get the idea from the Selection Series, it is a great series that I love. To Start off you can choose any Caste, but I recommend a lower Caste, because it give you something to work towards. Yes, you can marry up, but if you want, you can make it harder and marry down. I personally, just look at what job they have, and see what level they fit into. Obviously, sometime that doesn't make sense, but it is simplest. Also you could look at their wealth ad just give them a number, its up to you. I hope that answers all of your questions, if you have more, feel free to ask! Happy Simming :!: :lol:

What is a "caste??"

What is a "caste??"
According to google, and implied by Hindu society, a caste is "the system of dividing society into hereditary classes," or "any class or group of people who inherit exclusive privileges or are perceived as socially distinct." Basically, it is a society based rigidly on social classes, so much so that your entire live, job, spouse, etc. is determined by you classification. Hope that helps!

I was just thinking, it would be cool to have a mix of this and the 100 baby challenge but starting as a 9! ( I cannot play unless my challenges have a mix. ie: ISBI and the 5 item challenge)

To pick my caste, I'm going to randomize it and see what I get. :) I also think it would be cool to add challenges so you can work up similar to how America's brother did in the Selection series. ;)
