    So we're looking at planar magic. That's pretty awesome. Here's to hoping that magic is a skill and not contained within a lifestate.

    I don't know, I'd kind of prefer for it to be a lifestate. In sims 3, I didn't really see the point of making my sims witches, since any sim could use magic anyway.

    Only witches could use magic in The Sims 3.

    nah, from what little I managed to play before it crashed, I had regular sims using the magic stuff as well

    You certainly didn't have non-witches using magic without mods.

    They can use the magic "stuff" without being witches. The items from the store (cauldron, spellbook, etc.) and the elixirs from Supernatural can be used by regular sims. Casting spells with the wand (or hands if reward is purchased) cannot be done by non-witches.

    Maybe @liliaeth is thinking about the Lady Ravendancer Book of Spells?

    Even without Supernatural, any Sim, regardless of life state, can use magic with Lady Ravendancer Goth's Book o' Spells. The Book o' Spells can be purchased from The Sims 3 Store for 500 Simpoints.
    There are 5 spells to choose from, and Teens through Elders can learn from it.
    Enchant- This spell can be used on Lady Ravendancer's Book o' Spells and other magic objects like Lord Vladimir's Magic Cauldron and Soothsayer's Crystal Ball. It makes those objects look like they are in use.
    Mood Elevatus- This spell can be used in a room with 2 or more people in it to increase their Mood.
    Summon Anamale- This spell can be used in a room with 2 or more people in it to give them the "Cursed" Moodlet which makes Sims involuntarily act in strange ways.
    Summon- This spell summons a random Sim from your town to you.
    Summon Acquainted- This spell summons someone with "friend" or higher relationship to you.
    Sims must review the spells in the Book o' Spells for them to work successfully more often. The spells lose power quickly, so Sims should review them every day. If the spell does not work correctly, the Sim or the other Sims in the room may get the "Cursed" Moodlet.
    Another store item, the Malleable Mimic Voodoo Doll, can be bound to specific Sims and used for their benefit or detriment according to the player's wishes.

    Well...it better not be a rabbit hole.

    To be honest it would almost be hilarious if it is. Sim steps in the portal aaaand... Notification in the upper right.

    I'm scared of this too...but otherwise I am excited..I just hope it isn't.

    Apparently it will be a small world...

    Some of these things the Gurus are posting and the speculation here is putting me off from buying it at all and I've bought everything else.

    Please let the extra special thing be changing environment effects depending on the visiting sim's alignment! Or maybe the wizard world starts at neutral and changes for the better or worse depending on our sims' actions. I never played Sims 3 into the Future, but Strangerville sold me on the concept and I also liked it in Island living (had wanted more of it, actually).

    I agree it should only focus on witches as a life state, however, Zombies have been tied to witches in every single sims game, so I expect to be able to raise sims as zombies. A lot of people had frustrations with how they were implemented in sims 3, so I say make them more like sims 2. You will never see a zombie unless you go out of your way to create one.

    Zombies don't even require a lot of work so they wouldn't take away from witches. All you would need to do is stop them from aging, greenish blue skin tone, slow zombie walk and remove their emotions and personality.

    Basically sims 2 zombies but make it so you can cure them without mods.

    I really don't want zombies. I couldn't stand them in Sims 3.

    Guys, I'm scared. I haven't been this hyped since Persona 5 Royal got announced. I am worried I may explode.

    i think we should think only about witches...with them says it was equivalent to Forgotten Hollow + something extra special. i think it is just the town and magic....i don't see anything more coming with it...it's only a game pack..

    I think ... and I could be wrong (I often am) ... maybe it's a smallish world with 5 or so lots, but the portal is located there. And the portal leads to that "something extra special" which is an area like Magic Town in Sims 1?

    That would be fun. Of course, I'd like a larger world, but I could take a smaller one with a lot of atmosphere and then a portal to the magical realm.

    I, for one, am hoping for more Makin' Magic, and less in the way of the sequels.

    That's why I said they should be like sims 2. They wouldn't appear unless you went out of your way to create them. They also don't attack plants and behave like normal sims, but their personalities are completely different, it was bizarre. Sims 2 had the best personality system imo.

    I don't know how to feel. It Looks promising, but Deceiving at the same time. This Portal is giving me Once Upon a Time Vibes. I wonder... but it was a door, not a Archway... And then there's the Looking Glass with all 12 astrological symbols around it... but those aren't zodiac signs those are ancient symbols, but Those almost look Like The Symbols of Jupiter Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto meshed together.

    Looks Nordic tho too. Thought they could be runic symbols to open or activate the portal
