Default Peoples of Faerun Legacy
I’m back on my bullshit, friends!
This Legacy Challenge has 11 Generations and is based around the Races present in the Player’s Handbook, though if this takes off and there’s demand, I may make additions for the other sourcebooks in 5e.
(Find me on tumblr as wlwsims4 and tag me if you play this! I would LOVE to see your sims <3)

- Base Legacy Rules apply to whatever degree you like
- Custom Content may be necessary to fullfill some of the Appearance rules! (though optional)
- Mods are encouraged!
- Heirs are generally firstborn, but generational restrictions may apply
- You may age up children prematurely when they finish their aspiration, and teens when they have three positive character values in range for the trait
- Go ape shit
