This download is part of the The Ancients Creator Challenge
NOTE: MAKE SURE TO DOWNLOAD ALL FILES BELOW (SEE NOTE ABOUT 8/3/07 UPDATE FOR WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE CAREER REWARD) AND PLACE THEM IN YOUR DOWNLOADS FOLDER OR THE CAREER WON'T WORK PROPERLY.

UPDATE: 12/23/2008
While working on my carpool replacements recently I discovered a problem with the hansom carpool, it and the rickshaw were interfering with each other, causing the hansom to use the rickshaw's mesh. I fixed the problem and uploaded a new hansom carpool. If you have downloaded this before, you should download the new carpool below and replace the previous hansom carpool with it. If you are downloading this for the first time, use the new hansom carpool instead of the one in fighter carpools.rar.


UPDATE: 8/3/2007
I was made aware of a problem with the career reward for my espionage career that also applies to this one. While both the punching bag for the warrior career and the punching bag for the athletic career will appear in the rewards section, the original athletic punching bag was not able to be placed on a lot. I have fixed this problem. People who have already downloaded the career should download the new rar below (Fighter Reward.rar) and replace the original fighter reward with it. People downloading this career for the first time should use the reward in the Fighter Reward.rar instead of the one in the Fighter Career.rar. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm still rather inexperienced at objects.

UPDATE: 7/31/2007
After downloading Numenor's BaseGameStarter and testing in a basegame-only environment, I have discovered that my warrior career is incompatible with the basegame. For those of you that have no expansion packs, the game will crash. Sorry for the inconvenience. I didn't know until today.


This career is based on the Dungeons & Dragons Fighter class with the level titles being pulled (mainly) from the level titles in the old first edition Player's Handbook from way back in 1978. This is the second in my series of careers based on the Dungeons & Dragons classes (more to come!). This is the most ambitious career I've worked on so far, with four custom carpools (meshes used with kind permission from Hexameter), six custom uniforms, and a custom career reward (basically it's the punching bag, altered slightly).

Career Details:
-- Custom Icons (the picture I included is magnified greatly from the actual in-game icons, so if they look fuzzy or uneven, don't worry, they don't look that way in the game)
-- Complete Chance Cards
-- EP Ready
-- Custom Uniforms (all are recolors of basegame outfits, so there should be no compatibility issues)
-- Custom Career Reward (it's the punching bag recolored with a different description, but it does show up in the career rewards as a separate entry)
-- No overwriting of any career that I know of
-- Custom Carpools, listed below:

Hexameter's Ridable Horse
Hexameter's Victorian Coach
Hexameter's Rendezvous Hansom
Hexameter's Rickshaw
Note: I include these links so that you can see where the carpools came from and to give credit to Hexameter for his work. But these are not the carpools. Having his drivable vehicles in your downloads folder will not give you the carpools as well. They are completely separate vehicles that just look exactly the same. They have different GUIDs. The carpools (which are required for the career to work properly) are located in the downloads below in the file called Fighter Carpools.rar. If you want to have, say, the Rendezvous Hansom as both a drivable vehicle and a carpool you must have both packages: Hexameter's drivable one and the carpool version below. This applies equally to all four.

Levels and pay are:
1. Conscript $146
2. Veteran $303
3. Warrior $497
4. Swordsman/Swordswoman $601
5. Hero/Heroine $724
6. Swashbuckler $875
7. Myrmidon $1028
8. Champion $1312
9. Superhero/Superheroine $1987
10. Lord/Lady $2652

Body, Mechanical, and Charisma are the skills needed.

Lots of files in this one, place all of them in your downloads folder. Files are the career, the career reward, six outfits, four uniform templates, four carpools, three custom sound files. I have them split up into three rar files, you will need all three for it to work properly.

As in the Magic career, I based my chance cards on famous characters from movies and books only this time warriors. Can anyone identify the characters I used?

Heres a screenshot:

Thanks. The mechanics of careers aren't all that difficult, sometimes it's difficult to find interesting things to write, though. Your Aries lot looks very nice. I'm not that much of a builder, myself. I get frustrated trying to make things work the way I want them to (connecting stairs the bane of my existance). Good luck to you too.

This career is just wonderfull. It always drives me mad when my medieval/fantasy sims have go have modern jobs... or fantasy jobs but go to work in cars.
Do you think it would be possible to make another version of the career that would replace one of the original Maxis ones? For people like me who play only the fantasy neiberhood it would be a change to get rid of something they never want to use, make the chance of getting the career a bit higher and also solve the problem with career LTW.

I'm sure it would be possible, I'm just not clear on how to do it. It might be as simple as using the same GUID as the career that you want to replace. It wouldn't bother me if someone wanted to make a version of my career that replaced a Maxis career. They would have to also get Hexameter's permission to use the carpools, though. As far as the lifetime wants go, I think there is some sort of cheat or hack to reroll one. So if you're running a fantasy neighborhood and you get a career-oriented lifetime want you could just force the game to give you a new one.

Great idea for a career, FennShysa. My theme sims (& I of course ) are going to have a blast with this one. Thanks.

Thanks. Yes, it's a little similar to the Magic career (and to a certain extent, the Magic career for pets). That's because they are both based on Dungeons & Dragons. I plan on doing more in that vein. But first I have a kind of off-the-wall career that will be ready in just a couple of days. Keep a lookout.

What's happening there is that the hansom carpool is using the mesh of the rickshaw carpool and it is because I made them separately and forgot to test them together. They both worked fine separately without the other loaded into the game. In any event, I had just discovered that particular error a few days ago while I was working on my carpool replacements. I will be posting an updated version of the carpool so that that won't happen any more in a couple of days.

Nice but there's 2 minus:
1: Any houses, furnitures and any jobs i download doesn't work so this one counts too.
2: Check clothes from Rose (www.rosesims2.net) go to download, clothing then swing around the pages to find cool warrior clothes.
Hope u will create something cool from her ^^
