Doin’ What Comes Supernaturally

I took advantage of an offer to get the Sims 3 Supernatural expansion for half price, and I must say it’s pretty fun. You can create Sims who are witches, fairies, and werewolves; and there are also ways to change existing Sims into these supernatural classes. Witches can travel on brooms and cast spells, including ones to burn or freeze others and even turn them into toads. Amusingly, a toadified Sim is still the same size and basic shape of a normal one, just with a different color skin and a giant toad’s head.

This condition can be cured with a kiss. As for fairies, the game gives them both beneficial and mischievous magic, including the ability to booby-trap objects. If you set a fairy trap on a mailbox, it will send a swarm of bees out after the next person to check it, which strikes me as going beyond mere mischief. While a fairy Sim is normally the same size as any other Sim, they can shrink down to perform repairs on objects or to go inside fairy houses. Two fairies can apparently have sex in one of these houses, but I haven’t tried that yet.

I don’t think there’s any way for a fairy to steal a baby and leave a changeling, but the mythology does seem to be pretty well developed. I haven’t played a werewolf as of yet, but I do like that options for interacting with one include “Rub Belly” and “Compliment Fur.” The expansion also introduces moon phases, and all sorts of crazy things can happen during a full moon, including zombies showing up on your lawn. I know some people don’t care for the fantasy elements in the Sims games, but I personally love them.
