Default Reign of the Amazon Queen
This is an updated and edited version of rawlesims's Reign of the Amazon Queen Challenge (idk what happened to them, they went silent in 2016). This challenge was obviously influenced by the Amazon Challenge by Isaria from Sims 3, which was adapted into the Sims 4 Amazon Challenge by lovejess2 (I looked this for help with my updates and edits). So basically, this is by no means my original creation, but I loved this challenge and wanted an updated version.

You are the Amazon Queen. Your enemies used evil magic to cast you out of your homeland. Separated from your tribe in a strange new land, you have been left with next to nothing. But a queen is always a queen, and you are determined to recreate a sprawling tribe that will endure for generations.

Set Up
1) Create your Amazon Queen. She must be a beautiful, YA female with the Active, Genius, and/or Self-Assured traits.
2) Move her into one of the largest empty lots and set her money to §1,500.
3) Acquire a cow plant berry. (Later skill rules do not apply here, so the Queen is allowed to fish in the attempt to find one and garden to grow the cow plant, but only for the cowplant and only as long as there is no Hunter in the tribe.)
4) Now, you begin to expand your tribe. This can be done in two ways:
a. The natural birth or adoption of daughters.
b. Inviting women from town to join your tribe.
5) The goal is to produce as many Amazons as you can over the course of 10 generations and tell lots of fun stories along the way.

General Rules
1) No money cheats, unless otherwise stated.
2) No use of mods that make it easier for you to play/complete the challenge. However, Deaderpool’s MC Command Center mod (for No Jealousy, Quit School, etc.) and LittleMsSam’s Unlock/Lock Doors for chosen sims mod are suggested.
3) Sims may only join your tribe if they accept the Invite to Move In interaction. If you are trying to feed someone to the cow plant immediately (and you didn’t download the cow plant mod above) you may cheat to add them to the household since it can be pretty impossible to get NPCs to be eaten in an unmodded game.
4) This challenge is designed for play on Normal lifespan, but I’m not the boss of you, do what you want.
5) You may choose the traits of any child born or adopted into your household. You may not, however, change the traits of any Sim.
6) You may create or download Sims to be used as breeders or join the tribe, but they must not have any pre-leveled skills. (Use the #amazonqueen tag on the Gallery to download and upload Sims for the challenge.)
7) Ambrosia, Potions of Youth, Life Essence, Death Flowers, and Books of Life are ALL allowed to be used on any Sim, but, for storytelling purposes, your Amazon Queen is the one who determines how these are parceled out.
Note: Execution = fed to the cow plant. Exile = removed from the household and allowed no further contact with any Amazon.

Tribal Expansion
Invitation
• Only the reigning Queen may invite women to join the tribe.
• Potential tribe members must be Young Adult females.
• The new tribe member must be Good Friends with the Amazon Queen before she can be invited to join the tribe.
• Any pre-existing committed relationships with men must be terminated immediately upon joining the tribe.
• One woman may be invited to join the tribe immediately upon starting the challenge, then one woman after one sim week, and then one woman every two sim weeks thereafter. Choose a regular Induction Day (i.e. every other Sunday).
• New tribe members may not bring in any money.
Pregnancy
• A Breeder may be chosen to impregnate up to three Amazons, but only once each (see 'Breeder Role').
• You may NOT intentionally use fruit or music to influence the gender of children UNLESS the Queen’s line is about to end (she has NO natural daughters and there is only time for a final pregnancy before she becomes an elder).
• If an Amazon has three pregnancies that produce no daughters, she must be exiled unless she is a favorite of the Queen (at Best Friends level). You cannot have more than one Best Friend without mods, so just having the option to ‘Become Best Friends’ is the benchmark for this.
Adoption
• Only female babies may be adopted.
• Adoptions are only allowed once every two sim weeks.
• Adopted daughters may not become Queen. They may, however, become Chiefs (see ‘Secondary Tribes’).

The Amazon Way of Life
Once a woman has joined or been born/adopted into the tribe, there are certain rules she must abide:
• Amazons should limit interaction with outsider males to what is required for breeding purposes. No Amazon, except Nurturers, should be closer than Friend level with Tribal Sons or the son and the Amazon will be punished.
• Amazons may not have any manner of committed relationship with a male. This is punishable by death or exile at the Queen’s discretion.
• Amazons may have committed relationships with each other or outsider women, but any outsider woman must be inducted into the tribe before she can marry an Amazon.
• Amazons should have an aspiration in line with their tribal role, so when a new woman is invited her aspiration must be changed to an aspiration that goes with her prospective role if it does not already, however their bonus trait from whatever aspiration they had before may never be changed with the aspiration.
• Other than new initiates, aspirations may not be changed until completed. (If an aspiration requires career advancement and they are not and will never be allowed a job or something else that would break the rules, that requirement can be ignored and you can use the aspirations.complete_current_milestone cheat as soon as they’ve finished all the other requirements for that level).
• Only the Queen and Heiress may have a job.
• Amazon children and teenagers may not attend school (you can use Deaderpool’s Quit School mod that’s part of MC Command Center to make things easier).
• Unless otherwise indicated, Amazons may only leave the tribe’s lot/neighborhood to find men with which to breed, attend tribal gatherings as sanctioned by the Queen, or complete their aspiration with the Queen’s permission.
• Your tribe may have ceremonies and rituals, such as induction ceremonies or weekly meetings, at the discretion of the Queen.
• Every Amazon must take up a role in the tribe. They may decide on their role as early as Childhood. The roles of Queen and Heiress are automatically decided by birthright.
• The Queen and Heiress MUST have at least one of their suggested traits.
• It is suggested that an amazon has at least one of the traits associated with their prospective role and must not possess any of the forbidden traits for that role.
• Amazons may not intentionally study any skill outside of those allowed by their role unless otherwise indicated. (If a Sim autonomously does things that increase a disallowed skill, that’s fine, but you cannot tell them to and should try to stop them where possible.)
• Comedy, Video Gaming, Dancing (Get Together), and Bowling (Bowling Night Stuff) are skills allowed for everyone, but do not count towards their role.
• Amazons may only have one role and may not change roles.
• The Heiress takes over as Queen when the previous Queen ages into an elder or dies.

Tribal Roles
Amazon Queen
The highest ranking, most respected amazon, in charge of the whole tribe.
Traits: Active, Genius, and/or Self-Assured
Forbidden Traits: Clumsy and Lazy
Skills: Charisma, Fitness, and Logic (once all initial skills are maxed she may pursue any additional skills she likes)
The Queen may have an outside job and leave the tribal estate whenever she likes. If a job requires her to learn skills she’s not currently allowed, she must wait until she may learn those skills to advance in her career. The Queen controls everything important in the tribe. The Queen may also call for tribal gatherings (any social event or vacation) to be held on the home lot or elsewhere and to be attended by all members of the tribe unless their role forbids it. In other words, she da boss.

Amazon Heiress
The eldest living daughter of the Queen and next in line for the throne.
Traits: Active, Genius, and/or Self-Assured
Forbidden Traits: Clumsy and Lazy
Skills: Charisma, Fitness, and Logic (once all initial skills are maxed she may pursue any additional skills she likes)
The Heiress may have an outside job, but only upon maxing her allowed skills. She may also leave the lot whenever she likes, though as a child she may only visit Museum, Park, and Library lots. The Princess is second only to the Queen in authority, though she may not hand down any major rewards or punishments without the Queen’s consent, nor can she make any determinations about membership or call tribal gatherings without the Queen’s backing.

Initiate
An Amazon of the tribe, including any outsiders invited by the Queen, any younger Daughters of the Queen, and any daughters of the tribe. An Initiate has not been inducted into an official tribal role. They must reach level 3 in at least 3 of the skills associated with their chosen role (If you do not have packs for 3 skills required for a role then just reach level 3 of what you do have). If they have not successfully been inducted into a role by the time they age up into an adult, they are exiled.

Nurturer
The Nurturer is the tribe’s domestic caregiver tasked with keeping house and tending children.
Traits: Family-Oriented, Neat, and/or Outgoing
Forbidden Traits: Hates Children, Slob, and Loner
Skills: Cooking, Gourmet Cooking, Mixology, Baking (Get to Work), Parenting (Parenthood), Knitting (Nifty Knitting Stuff), Juice Fizzing (Eco Lifestyle), and Cross-stitch (Cottage Living)
She must be the primary caregiver for all children born into the tribe and cannot leave the lot for ANY reason if there is an infant present.

Gatherer
The gatherer oversees all collection, gardening, and general outdoorsman-ship for the tribe.
Traits: Loves Outdoors, Perfectionist, Active, and/or Maker (Eco Lifestyle)
Forbidden Traits: Lazy, Clumsy, and Squeamish (Outdoor Retreat)
Skills: Handiness, Fishing, Gardening, Fitness, Flower Arranging (Seasons), and Fabrication (Eco Lifestyle)
Gatherers are permitted to leave the tribe’s lot to collect items.

Scholar
The Scholar is the purveyor of art and culture for the tribe, along with being its historian.
Traits: Creative, Bookworm, Music Lover, and/or Art Lover
Skills: Painting, Writing, Piano, Guitar, Photography, Logic, and Research & Debate (Discover University)
They must write a biography of each queen before the queen’s death.

Priestess
The Priestess manages the spiritual, physical, and emotional wellbeing of the tribe.
Traits: Good and/or Cheerful
Forbidden Traits: Hot-Headed, Materialistic, and Self-Absorbed (Get Famous)
Skills: Violin, Piano, Herbalism (Outdoor Retreat), Wellness (Spa Day), Singing (City Living), and Medium (Paranormal)
She must live in the temple. Priestesses must not interact with males in ANY WAY and must live cloistered at the tribal lot, never leaving for any reason. ANY YA/Adult/Elder male that interacts with a Priestess must be executed. A Priestess must be chosen in childhood to ensure that she remains cloistered, so she must be born into the tribe.

Elders
They are wise and highly respected amazons (still below the Queen). They keep their roles, but they should not have to perform any extraneous tasks that they may have when they were younger.

Beast Tamer (Cats & Dogs)
The Beast Tamer trains and cares for tribal pets.
Traits: Cat Lover and/or Dog Lover
Skills: Pet Training, Veterinarian
She trains all pet initiates to obey every command. She makes sure all pets are healthy, fed, and clean.

Men Among the Amazons
All men, regardless of origins, must have their own separate barracks, away from the main living area.
Men are only allowed to join the tribe in two ways:
1) A man may be an outsider brought in by any Amazon. He must be immediately assigned a male role.
2) A man may be a Tribal Son, born to an Amazon and raised in the tribe.
a. You must randomize their traits.
b. They may learn any skills, but only if the Queen has decided to provide them the means to do so.
c. Upon becoming Young Adults, Tribal Sons must immediately choose a role or be exiled.
Tribal Roles for Men:
Servant
A Servant functions primarily as a helper for the Queen, Heiress, and Nurturers. He is allowed into the main house solely for the purposes of cleaning, repairing, cooking on rare occasions, and doing any kind of minor errands or grunt work the Queen or Heiress requires. Servants are not allowed to have jobs. Servants are never allowed to leave the tribal estate unless accompanied by a Queen or Princess. Servants may have any traits and may learn any skills at the Queen’s discretion. Only two Servants can be kept in the household at any given time. Servants may be chosen as Breeders, but if not, they must remain a Servant until they die of old age.

Breeder
A Breeder’s sole purpose is to impregnate Amazons. Once selected, he is not allowed to leave the breeding pen until either he has impregnated up to three Amazons or no Amazons who are willing or able to be impregnated by him. After that the Breeder is executed if he was an outsider or exiled if he was a Tribal Son.

Construction Guidelines
You should aim to build the following on your tribe's estate. You must have all of these things in your primary tribe before you found any secondary tribes.
Your estate will need:
• Queen and Princess's Quarters- each must have a double bed and its own bathroom.
• Initiate’s Quarters- you may separate these into spaces for child initiates, teen initiates, and young adult initiates, or in any other fashion, but every initiate must have a bed.
• Amazon’s Quarters- you may separate these by role or in any other fashion, but every Amazon must have a bed.
• Nursery- must have enough space to fit the bassinets for all children born or adopted into the tribe; one Nurturer may choose to live here instead of in the Amazon’s Quarters in which case it must have a bed for her.
• Temple- must contain a yoga mat, incense, and a meditation stool (Spa Day); Priestesses live here instead of in the Amazon’s Quarters, so it must have a bed for every Priestess.
• Kitchen
• Dining Area- there must be a seat for the every Amazon.
• Meeting Area- there must be thrones/honored seats for the Queen and Princess.
• Breeding Pen- must be separate from the rest of the estate and have a double bed, cheap toilet, and cheap shower.
• Men’s Barracks- all Servants and Tribal sons live here; must be separate from the rest of the estate and have a bathroom and a bed for each Servants/Tribal sons.
• Execution chamber- a cow plant and a locked door.

Secondary Tribes
Due to the large number of roles to fill and the necessity of having many children, the normal Sim household will fill up pretty quickly. Since there is currently no way to have more than eight Sims in a household without big glitches (i.e. inability to use CAS or Manage Families), if you like, you may have your original tribe splinter into any number of secondary tribes. As long as the following rules are abided:
• Upon founding a secondary tribe, you may change aging to Only Active Household if you wish to play rotationally.
• You do not have to play a secondary tribe at all if you don’t want to. You may simply put extra Sims there and leave them. BUT for every Sim week you DO play a secondary tribe, it must offer 10% of its household’s worth as a tithe to the Queen and the primary tribe.
• A secondary tribe may only spin off from the primary tribe ruled directly by the Queen. A secondary tribe may not split its household to make another secondary tribe.
• The Amazon Queen, Heiress, any Initiates, and any current Breeders are NOT allowed to move to a secondary tribe.
• Any number of Amazons may move to a secondary tribe.
• A secondary tribe MUST contain at least one Daughter of the Queen. The eldest Daughter of the Queen in the secondary tribe is the secondary tribe’s Chief. She keeps her previous tribal role and limitations, EXCEPT:
• She is in control of all Potions of Youth, Life Essences, etc. produced in her tribe.
• She is allowed to call Amazon gatherings for her tribe.
• It is an Amazon in her tribe’s relationship with her that determines whether they are exiled for having three pregnancies that produce no daughters.
• All other day-to-day decisions about her tribe also fall under her purview.
• Secondary tribes may continue to find Breeders and Servants as normal, in addition to birthing, but they are NOT allowed to invite outsider women into the tribe directly or to adopt.
• Tribe members may be transferred back to the primary tribe, or to another secondary tribe, at any time. The Chief, however, may only leave her tribe if there is another Daughter of the Queen available to take her place as Chief.
• When the original Chief of a tribe dies a Daughter of a Queen must succeed her. It can be the daughter of the reigning Queen or a daughter of the previous Queen, but it must be a woman given birth to or adopted by a Queen. If there is no Daughter of the Queen to become Chief, the secondary tribe is considered in rebellion against the Queen and is thus disbanded. All who can may rejoin the main tribe (or another secondary tribe if one exists). If you run out of space, anyone remaining is exiled (Amazons, Tribal Sons) or executed (Servants, Breeders).
• All other rules apply to secondary tribes as normal.
If you do want to try a mod that allows for more than 8 sims in a household, you can use Deaderpool’s MC Command Center to increase the limit of sims you can have in a household. Be careful if you do this because managing households and CAS will not work after adding a ninth sim and will cause any sims past eight to be deleted. In order to add sims over eight to the household you will have to cheat them in after your relationship is high enough to have the options. To edit a sim you will need to separate them from the household, so they are in a household of eight or less.

Pack Specific Rules

Here are some variations you could if you like occult:

Vampires
All-vampire tribe (Brood)
• Role Alterations:
• Scholars and Priestesses can also study the Vampire Lore skill
• Entertainers can also study the Pipe Organ
• An Amazon’s Brood Role affects her permitted max vampire rank:
• Amazon Queen: Grand Master Max Level (most powerful obviously, she’s the Queen)
• Heiress: Master Vampire Level 4
• Priestess: Master Vampire Level 1 (Level 2 for Elder Priestesses)
• Elders: Master Vampire Level 1
• All other Roles: Prime Vampire Level 4
• Initiates: Fledgling Vampire Level 4
• The Queen is the only one allowed to have the Vampire Creation Power and therefore is the only one allowed to turn initiates into vampires.
• Perks, Powers, and Weaknesses should make sense with an amazon’s brood role.
• Males may not be vampires, if they are born one they must be cured with The Ultimate Vampire Cure.
• Executions of vampires should be done through garlic or daylight.

Island Living
All-mermaid tribe (Pod).
• Only the Queen may bless initiates with mermadic kelp and has full control of all mermadic kelp in the Pod.
• Role Alterations:
• Child of the Islands trait is highly suggested for Priestesses.
• Priestesses should work to improve pollution if you live in Mua Pel’am.
• The founding Queen should enter the conservationist career to improve Mua Pel’am as much as possible.
• Males may not be mermen, if they are born one they must eat two mermadic kelp.
• Executions may be done through drowning.

Realm of Magic
All Spellcasters (Coven).
• An Amazon’s Tribal Role affects her permitted max spellcaster rank:
• Amazon Queen: Virtuoso (most powerful obviously, she’s the Queen)
• Heiress: Master
• Priestess: Master
• Elders: Master
• All other Roles: Adept
• Initiates: Apprentice
• Amazons should only study magic that makes sense with their role.
• Males may not be Spellcasters, if they are born one they must have a Sage remove it.
• You must replace the male Sages with a female.
