That's great but so sad!

Poor Princess Sophie.

So I got carried away with story telling.

Sophie ran away from home in search of adventure. She found 3 other orphans who had settled on an island, Orphan Island, and joined them. After about a day, I switched back to the nanny real quick, but she got robbed. When that was finally over, I switched back to Orphan Island, only to find that the orphans had gotten motorboats. They became unroutable in them and starved. This is not how I wanted it to end.

So I'm still a little confused as to the percentage rolls. Especially with the Vikings and wars. There is a 25% chance a member of your household is taken away by the vikings (as with wars, xx% that those who go off to war get killed etc.), but I'm not sure how we determine this percentage. Is a 25% chance rolling a 25-sided die and if it hits 25 they are taken away? Or rolling a 4 on a 4-sided die? Or generating a random number? Thanks

Also, I agree with the earlier poster that days 37-415 are a bit devoid of events (I get bored easily so I hope I can make it through to all the wars and other events!). Has anyone thought of an events that could happen during those days?

Also, also, I liked the idea of adding an event about the use of medicine so I did a little research and added this to my rules -- Antiseptic introduced (Day 1900): Medicine can now be used to treat illness.

Agreed about the medicine.

As for the 25% bit, that's just a 4 on a 4-sided die. A 25% chance is just that simple fraction, and I think I kept them all simple fractions, but correct me if I'm wrong.

I've downloaded loads of new medieval cc but not actually got around to playing my dynasty family again. Feeling a bit uninspired. How about anyone else?

This is a fun challenge, but I just don't know what to do. I lost, but I want to keep playing, but I don't want to start over. Maybe I can start a new family in the same save in the time period I left off in (after the plague ruined everything)?

My mom came up with a backstory!

The kingdom searched the treasury frantically, looking for any royalty that may be alive. They were relieved but shocked when they found an old birth certificate. The father of the queen had a child with a poor woman, meaning queen had a half sister! Although the royal family came from the king's side, the kingdom was desperate and tracked down the forgotten princess. It turned out to be none other than Nanny Blackmon.
A good prince from another kingdom was quickly arranged to marry her to help her rule and later produce an heir. Thus, the new king and queen are Yvette and Zachariah Burroughs.

Okay thanks for the clarification, I was having trouble understanding how percentages translated to dice rolls but that makes perfect sense

I don't know if anyone is still playing the Dynasty Challenge, but it looks really fun, so I've decided to give it a go!

Dynasty Name: Xianshu Dynasty
Location: East China, roughly 256 B.C
Ranks: (localized/equivalent with the 1-7 system previously mentioned)

7. Emperor/Empress = King/Queen
6.5. Grand Prince/Princess = Future King/Queen
6. Prince/Princess = Prince/Princess
5. Duke/Duchess = Duke/Duchess
4. Marquess/Marchioness = Marquess/Marchioness
3. Count/Countess = Earl/Countess
2. Baron/Baroness = Viscount/Viscountess
1. Knight/Dame = Baron/Baronet

In my Dynasty, the Grand Prince/Princess is the title given to the eldest born child of the reigning monarchs, and the title is adjusted to their gender. If the first legitimate born is a female (my dynasty prefers males), then a Grand Princess and Prince will be titled, but if it is a male, then only a Grand Prince, meaning regardless of if the eldest child is female or not, there will always be a Grand Prince.

It is kind of breaking the rules, but titles are assigned based on relation to the monarch and their immediate family in my dynasty. For example, the niece/nephew of the Monarch and 1st cousin of their children is given the title Marquess/Marchioness. To adjust for this, a person has to buy 2 statues to rank up, since a lot of the family starts high-ish up. They can also rank up by being really good friends with the Monarch and their kids, and will be boosted up 1 rank accordingly. However, ranks aren't changed after someone becomes a Duke/Duchess, but there is more favor put their way when it comes to the Monarch dying and their kids taking over.



Using the system I've set up the ranks for each person as a default would be:

Mao - Emperor
Lian - Empress
Qian - Grand Princess
Zhaou - Grand Prince
Ming - Prince
Laura - Grand Princess (Zhaou)
Nara - Princess (Ming)
Shen - Duke
Xing - Duchess
Huang - Count
Teng - Marquess
Xu - Marchioness
Dai - Emperor Mother (if alive still) or Empress (if died as a monarch)
Jiang - Emperor Father (if alive still) or Emperor (if died as a monarch)
Meng - Empress Mother or Empress
Gou - Empress Father or Emperor
Ling - Duchess
Wu - Duke
Xiong - Marchioness

Now, into my Dynasty!


~ My founders and ruling monarchs; Lian Min and Mao Shun

I don't have much material so far, but I will update again soon!

I have another small update for this thread! Is anyone even playing this anymore, I don't know, but I hope it becomes more active soon. To the news..

NEWS!

Day: 4


~ The Emperor and Empress have had a baby boy, and the kingdom rejoices! His name is Zhou Shun-Min.

~ The Royal Bedroom

~ The slaves' quarters

~ The kitchen

~ Lounge area/dining room

~ Laundry area

~ Arts room

Soon, I will post the palace I made for the Xianshu Dynasty under the #dynastychallenge tag or maybe a new one like #dynastychallengebuilds? Considering how long this challenge is, future updates will be less frequent. I might also post a list of extra events I'm using or something as well. Thanks for reading!

Okay, I love this challenge, but can someone tell me how you keep track of the days. I've never seen anything in game that shows that, and Im not very diligent in things like that. I'm gonna make the Royals from The Witcher though

Don't Cry for me I'm ordinary and unimportant
