The premise of the challenge is to play a Legacy Challenge where you roll from a set of parameters to determine how your Sim's lives will be lived out, with specifications ranging from the marital structure, to careers, to goals for your Sims to complete during their time in your game.
The goal of the challenge is to add a bit of structure to a game that is essentially a sandbox. That sandbox can be overwhelming, and cheaty, and doesn't always offer incentives to mix up the way you play... but this challenge does! And if you blog about your adventures, we'll be there for the ride along with you.
If a rule is not clear, please visit our thread on MTS and ask for clarification. We're friendly!
Note you do not have to have every (or any) expansion to play. You'll just have to exempt yourself from some of the possible rolls. Many people play by their own house rules as well, exempting themselves from rolls they intensely dislike or find too buggy. That's fine! Have fun!

A little bit of history about the Random Legacy Challenge...
The original challenge by Tigger89 was a more rigid version of what the RLC is now, with less rolls.
Sadly Tigger89 disappeared from the challenge before the release of the Late Night expansion, and we were left without an update to include all the fancy new careers and life states and stuff. So, those of us who were still there began to make our own "House Rules" to fill in for Tigger's absence.
Early on, Severedsolo (on this blog as "Just Call me God") took over administration of the challenge and introduced new rolls and objectives by updating the thread at MTS.
Later on, as more and more expansions were released, the list of rules and possible rolls grew large and intimidating! We were afraid the sight of it would terrify new people, so the challenge was moved over to this blog. Severedsolo felt the challenge had grown into a "monster" that was "just too much for one man to keep a hold of"! So, now the challenge is administrated by Severedsolo, Calisims, Mimi250, NutandDolts, CinderEmma, and CyyKosis. And maybe some other people.
Anyway that's enough from me, lets go play Sims dammit.
