The Sorcerous Supplies

(bringing a little magic to FreePlay and Simville)

- - - - - - - - - - = = = = = @ @ = = = = = - - - - - - - - - -

Welcome to the future of a magical Simville... Or is it the past of a magical... Wait...

Right so here is the thing - even if you don't read the fan sites, or the official game site for FreePlay, you cannot help but Notice the news announcement that appeared in the game, or the presence of a new building site situated near the base of the Dam on the river, right? Right!

That new building site is an intimate little affair for the newest building and lifestyle in the world of The Sims: FreePlay. Not only that, but it also includes a new and exciting Hobby for Teens, and Adult Sims (Preteens and Senior Sims need not apply) that is called Broomstick Flying - and is exactly what it sounds like!

Considering how persuasive and invasive Harry Potter was to the world is it really all that much of a surprise that magic has made it into Simville? Really? Well, it has!

The Sorcerous Supplies

When the new building site appeared in your game (it requires Level 8 and above) you will have spotted it situated at the foot of the dam on the north shore of the river, and when you tap on it you may be very pleased and shocked to see that unlike the other new buildings sites that have been added to the game over the past six months, this one has NO attachment to the Life Dreams & Legacy Quest at the outset.

What does that mean?

Well, if you are like us, and you are working very hard to complete all of the Career and Hobby Mastery prior to engaging and enabling the Sims Aging System, this is good news indeed. While we have been working diligently to accomplish all that can be accomplished in terms of Career and Hobby Mastery it is rather nice to have something new to add to the mixture, particularly something that offers a new hobby to you for your Sims that currently lack one.

With our town here at SuperCheats at Level 35 and thus our Sim Count for Population at 25/25 we cannot look to be adding a new Sim until we reach Level 36 - so having something new to help that process along is also a welcome Event!

A simple tap on the building site below the dam reveals lots of information:

Building Name: Sorcerous Supplies

Town Value Boost: + $300,000

Construction Timer: 2 Days, 18 Hours

Construction Costs: $350,000

Sim Population Required: 16 Sims

Build the Sorcerous Supplies store to gain access to:

So yeah, not one but TWO new hobbies! And how freaking cool is that?!

Very very very cool, that is how cool! Or as our French Simmers would say, Très cool! Our Spanish Simmers would say Muy cool! And our German Simmers would say: Wir denken, dies ist eigentlich sehr cool, aber wir dürfen nicht mehr als zu reagieren, denn das wäre peinlich gesehen werden. Aber wir denken, dass es sehr schön ist.

Darn those Germans!

Way back when we realized that there was likely to be a string of builds coming soon we started to save up our money, particularly9 the $45K daily we received via the mail box, and now we are glad that we did, sicne the cost of this building only dents our treasury. Of course now we have to wait out the 2 days and 18 hours of the build timer. Sigh.

- - - - - - - - - - = = = = = @ @ = = = = = - - - - - - - - - -

The Book of Spells Quest

Once you complete building the store you flag The Book of Spells Quest, which unlocks at Level 8 and after you have built the store. Completing that process (details below) will unlock the Spell Casting Hobby, and the next special quest...


Once you activate this Quest as long as you complete it within Seven (7) Days from its flagging and start, you get yourself a Pet Dragon. Very cool! Very cool indeed!

You have seven days to complete this Quest and thus get yourself a Pet dragon as part of the reward.

Don't worry though, even if you can't manage to get it done in the 7 days you are given you can still complete the Quest - you just don’t win the prize... Personally the prizes for this part of the game are actually (at least to us) worth having, so it is certainly worth making the effort.

The Quest - Part I

  • Buy a crystal ball ($5,000) from Sorcerous Supplies (Instant);

  • Place the Crystal Ball in one of your Sim Homes or perhaps your Ghost Hunter House? (Instant);

  • Gaze into your Crystal Ball (30s);

  • Gaze into your Crystal Ball (30s);

  • Pick up the Magic Wand (2s);

  • Unlock the door to the Wand Room (2h 30m) - follow the clues;

    What you need to do is explore the house, and tap different Objects - like the Painting - to search for clues. The clues will reveal the object that you need to look at / the choice you need to make. So search them :)

  • Gaze upon the designated object (3m 30s);

  • Take the Magic Want (30s);

  • Use the Crystal Ball to return home (1s);

  • Act Casual on a Couch (10h);

  • Place the Magic Wand Podium in your house.

After the Magic Want Podium is placed in your House

The Quest - Part II

  • Cast a random spell with the Wand Podium (13h 30m);

  • Talk to a Sim about Magic Wands (8m);

  • Cast a random spell with the Wand Podium (13h 30m);

  • Watch the Emergency Broadcast (2h 30m);

  • Visit the Park (Instant);

  • Call a Sim to the Park (Instant);

  • Formulate a Plan & click on the Mummy (6h 10m);

  • Search for Mummy Removal Spell on the Internet (13h 30m);

  • Perform Mummy Removal Spell using the Magic Wand Podium (7m);

  • Use the Crystal Ball to visit the Wizard House (Instant);

  • Read Weird World of Wands at the Wizard House (22h 30m);

  • Explain to the Wizard (8h 12m);

  • Use the Crystal Ball to return home (Instant);

  • Call a Sim to the Park (Instant);

  • Talk to the Wizard (1m 40s);

  • Distract a Mummy (16h 30m);

  • Talk to Wizard about Magic Spells (3m);

  • Distract a Mummy (16h 30m);

  • Joke around with the Wizard (10s);

  • Distract a Mummy (16h 30m);

  • Pack up the Magic Wand Podium (30s);

  • Talk to the Wizard (3h 10m)

Complete within the slotted timer and you win a Pet Dragon! The pet Dragon is found in the Pet Store (naturally) and is available for different prices depending on Dragon quality...

  • 1-Star Dragon- ($50,000)

  • 1-Star Dragon (25 SP)

  • 2-Star Dragon ($250,000)

  • 2-Star Dragon (25 LP)

  • 3-Star Dragon (50 LP)

  • 3-Star Dragon (100 LP)

I don’t know if it is really worth it to buy the more expensive ones - that is really your call... I mean a Dragon is a Dragon, right? And how do you put a price on Dragon friendship?!

Note that when you buy a Dragon from The Pet Shop it is the same situation that Hagrid faced when he obtained his Dragon from a bloke at the Three Broomsticks - that is to say you get a Dragon Egg, not an actual Dragon. So you get an Egg and you need to hatch it. Depending upon the stars the timer can be long...

Spell Casting Hobby Collection Quest

As is consistent with the basic Game Play mechanics for FreePlay, new and added content is added to the game with the opportunity for you to earn special Pets or Objects - as long as you get her done within the time limit...

LIMITED TIME: Get Yourself an Imperial Barn Owl!

If you finish it within the Seven (7) Days from its flagging and start, you get yourself an Imperial Barn Owl!

You have seven days to complete this Quest and get yourself a Pet dragon as part of the reward. Don't worry though, even if you can't manage to get it done in the 7 days you are given you can still complete the quest - you just don’t win the prize...

Strategy-wise this works pretty much the same as the other hobbies in that you are best served using the shortest timer for it. For most of the other hobbies that is like a 10m timer, but for Spell Casting the short cast is actually the "Quick Spell" task, which takes 2h 30m to complete - so for this stage in the game and for this Quest you are going to need to play in two-and-a-half or three hour gaps.

Also remember that you will certainly have to repeat that spell over and over - and over - to get a new object for the collection once you get to the higher level ones - and of course you must GET to a higher level in order to unlock and obtain them. Hey, no joke, this is a lot of hard work!

The Collection consists of four lines of three Objects in each line, each of which pays an increasing reward. The objects are, by level:

  • Level 1: Tasteless Apple / Odious Toadstool

  • Level 2: Clouded Crystal / Strange Toadstool

  • Level 3: Common Apple / Blind Eye

  • Level 4: Animal Eye / Jade Crystal

  • Level 5: Carnelian Crystal

  • Level 6: Luminous Toadstool / Beholder Eye / Golden Apple

The actual collection structure is in four lines, with increasing rewards consisting of the following:

  • Line 1: Tasteless Apple / Odious Toadstool / Clouded Crystal -- 750 XP

  • Line 2: Strange Toadstool / Common Apple / Blind Eye -- 1,000 XP

  • Line 3: Animal Eye / Jade Crystal / Carnelian Crystal -- 1,500 XP

  • Line 4: Luminous Toadstool / Beholder Eye / Golden Apple -- 2,000 XP

If you complete this Quest in the time allotted you win a free Imperial Barn Owl, which normally costs you 15 LP. Note that unlike the Dragon, which you know, is a major Pet, the Imperial Barn Owl is more like a fish or a rabbit, so you will find them in the pet section of the buy and build store at home. Just saying...

New Hobbies

Oddly while the Broomstick Flying Hobby does already appear in the hobbies list (when you tap on the Hobby Tab and then an individual hobby on the right-hand pop-up menu you see Broomstick Flying listed under the Teenager and Adult Tabs, but not the Spell Casting Collection.

We know that there IS a Spell Casting Collection - it is a major element of the special Quests above - but it is strange that it actually has to be unlocked to add it to the catalog when the Broomstick one does not...

Broomstick Flying - the Hobby Collection

As with most of the Hobby collections, Broomstick Flying has twelve (12) collectible Objects spread over four lines with three objects in each line.

The short task is called "Quick Broomstick Flight" and takes 4h 30m so you are likely to only get three or four goes in an average day....

These collection Objects are:

  • Line 1: Ruby Dashing Spiral / Jade Dashing Spiral / Sapphire Dashing Spiral -- 750 XP

  • Line 2: Ruby SuperSim / Jade SuperSim / Sapphire SuperSim -- 1,000 XP

  • Line 3: Ruby Loop / Jade Loop / Sapphire Loop -- 1,500 XP

  • Line 4: Ruby Corkscrew / Jade Corkscrew / Sapphire Dashing Spiral -- 2,000 XP

After the collection has been completed for the first time you can buy a Magic Broomstick Closet from the Sorcerous Supplies store. It costs $10,000 just so you know...

There are a number of prizes to be had for completing the above collection, from the Home Builder Kit to a magic mop that automagically cleans your home!

More to come....

It is very hard work completing the spell casting, I have nearly all of them just 2 left but I only have 13 hours left which isn't a lot compared to how long it takes to get just one new object! Advice for other players about to start this hobby, regularly check the game and I mean like every 2 and a half hours because it's a very long process and the time they give you to complete it and get an owl isn't actually a lot so dont waste it Smile

I'm really struggling with this part of the sims, as I have gone and 'act casual' on a couch, and it's telling me I have to place the Magic Wand Podium? I've looked everywhere- it's not in my inventory or at the sorcerous supplies store! I'm really frustrated because I can't find it anywhere, but then when I go back to the Wizard's House it's still there! It won't let me interact with it or anything, so I am unsure what to do now?
