Aristocracy, Royalty & Mistress Careers for Sims 4

Sims 4 Aristocracy, Royalty & Mistress Careers mod
Aristocracy, Royalty & Mistress Careers for Sims 4

This is meant to enable historical/fantasy players’ nobles & royals with income and is otherwise cosmetic. For more gameplay, I’d recommend either: downloading KiaraSims’ royalty Career mod for royal sims; using llazyneiph’s Royalty Mod for both Noble&Royal sims; or using all the same time and by your discretion, choosing what mod will supply your noble or royalty careers.

You can’t just be anyone to associate with everyone! Status and rank matter more than most else, and your titles reflect upon your bearing!

With 8 new careers in this pack, you can officially become a noble, royal, or the lover of a noble or a royal! Adopted from three different societies of real history (“Europe”, Heian Japan, and Tang-dynasty China).

European Aristocracy [In Game: “Aristocrat (EU)”]
You are part of a family ruling over a part of the realm under the head of the Sovereign. Even before the rise of the Sovereign, your ancestors plotted their first lines in the ground. If they were smart, they also claimed mines and established personal trades to support their status through overwhelming wealth!

Levels

  • “Gentry”: You have not entered the royal court or made any sort of debut. Having a title but no recognition.
  • “Courtier”: You said a temporary farewell to your royal patron and hopefully made a good impression. Now you must attend many parties and build special skills to catch the attention of other higher-ranked aristocrats.
  • “Knight/Dame or Royal Attendant”: You still hold no lands under your own authority or name yet, so you need to start building connections with other nobles and even some wealthy merchants. To be a complete part of the nobility, you have to have both material land and build wealth based on your social credit–and that comes with showing off your genealogy! You are also subject to being drafted into Your Grace’s Sovereign Forces, so you need to be as fit as you can! Or you went under serve a Sovereign or their family member, attendant to their every need…and having an intimacy that has you closer to personal plans.
  • “Lord/Lady”: Now assigned a small section of serfdom owned by a connection, you must learn how to direct others and flout your authority over the peasants you are responsible for. Be careful not to have one of them act out, or it might be your head!

After choosing a branch, the sim will officially be “Baron/Baroness”, “Marquis/Marquess”, “Count/Countess”, “Duke/Duchess”, or an “Archduke, Archduchess”.

Branches

  • “Overseer of a Barony”: You’ve made it! Still, you will always be lower than a Marquess, but higher than a Lady.
  • “Overseer of a County”: Lower than a Marquis, higher than a Baron.
  • “Overseer of a Margarviste”: Lower than an Archduke, higher than a Countess.
  • “Overseer of Duchy”: Lower than an Archduchess, higher than a Marquess.
  • “Of the Archduchy” (the Level after Duke/Duchess) You live with a status second only to the Sovereign! You can also possibly inherit their throne.

Titles

  • “Baron/Baroness”: Now you can call yourself a true Aristocrat! Many Lords and Ladies must report to you if they want to obtain any large resource.
  • “Marquis/Marquess”: While you don’t have as much power as a Count, Duchess, or Archduchess, you still can pretend you are as significant as the Sovereign for the pecuniary boost!
  • “Count/Countess”: You are a powerful ally for most Aristocrats. As your closer control over many a Marquis and your closeness to the Duke puts you in a liminal position of power, you can shift lesser Aristocrats towards the higher-ups.
  • “Duke/Duchess”: You control an entire sector of Counties. Your opinion is also considered paramount when there is a new project begins, sometimes even before then.
  • “Archduke, Archduchess”: You have either been adopted into the Sovereign family, or you already are a part of it. Well, now you can enjoy being this close to the Sovereign.

Japanese Aristocracy [In Game: “Aristocrat (Japan)”]
You are part of a family ruling over a part of the realm under the head of the Emporer or Empress. Even before the rise of the imperial ruler, your ancestors plotted their first lines in the ground.

Paramour
Level — (The only level for this career)
“Noble Paramour”

You have not entered the royal court or made any sort of debut. Having a title but no recognition.

You have a relationship with a noble lover, even if they (or you) are married. However, it’s likely not that much of a secret. Because your lover isn’t royal, you’re just not that significant outside of your lover’s household, but life may be much better than what it was before.

You just have to keep them happy and avoid their (maybe) jealous spouses…

Royal Paramour
Levels

  • ” ‘Little’ Paramour”: You are an unacknowledged, less important royal lover, even if the court may know you are involved with a royal. You’re still not important enough to most powerful and ambitious sims to curry favor with, though your lover may grant some gifts to you in “secret”.
  • “Declared Paramour”: You have been presented (or brought back) to the royal court! Now you can semi-publicly advise your lover, broker favors for “clients”, forge state & international alliances, and negotiate with foreign diplomats. You have no official title. However, many at court seek your favor to get closer to your lover. You should be selective in what you take into your inner circle–you never know who may even catch your lover’s eye and replace you!
  • “’ Paramour-with-Title’ ”: Nothing has changed, really aside from you receiving an official title that has nothing to do with your “formal” position as your lover’s only lover. You, however, are so dependent on it that you likely sign your name with your lover (even over their spouse!) on official documents.

NOTES

  • Requires nothing but Base Game, and can be used with llazyneiph’s Royalty Mod but NOT with their Monarch or nobility careers.
  • The “Titles” do not appear above Sims’ heads!
  • You need to download “ICONS & IMAGES” for the icons & other images to appear in-game.
