How to Join the Secret Society and Benefits of Doing So!
The Secret Society in The Sims 4!
In Discover University, we know there exists a secret organization that meets near Pepper's Pub in a clearing across the bridge. We saw this in the trailer. There seemed to be a magical influence, given the blessings these members were supposed to get. Let's learn how you can join them, but saving the secrets for later when I'm less tired.
How to Meet Them
You don't have to do this, but heading to the clearing in the area marked in the map above, you will sometimes see members in robes doing something, and they'll scatter when you arrive. They lie to you about what they're doing, and that makes me even more curious.
How to Join the Secret Society
Make an Offer for Academic Success at your University's Statue
Despite them being super-secret, it's entirely possible to join this society. Make a high-quality offering at your University's main statue, the one in the field where people meet for events. You have a few options when making an offering for academic success:
- Desserts: Baked goods are very much desired and will give you a Focused buff, whether they work or not. They need to be of excellent quality. This may be possible to do with a few levels in cooking.
- Rare Cyrstals or Metals - this is the most reliable option, but you have to find one first.
- Pristine Gardening Harvestables
Once You've Made an Offering
Joining the Secret Society is easy once you know what to do!
If your offering was good enough, the Secret Society will come to visit you that night, and offer you to join the Secret Organization. They will let you right in, and now they appear on your organizations panel with a schedule and tasks you can perform to rank up.

When you're in the Secret Organization, you can use the Research Machine to learn about the Secret Society's origins.
Here is the text in case you'd like to read about them:
The End of an Era
In The Order of Enchantment's second year, their founder Esther Mudget was speaking at a charity auction about the importance of using all-natural ingredients for baking.
Why she chose that discussion topic in the first place for this particular event is a separate mystery.
Midway through this infamous speech, Ms. Mudget abruptly and dramatically ran off into the woods, leaving the auction-goers baffled.
It was later revealed internally among the Society that she had overused and betrayed the Sprites, seemingly ignoring their pleas for entertainment and starving them of the sugar they so craved. And all the while had been reaping the academic and social benefits they had bestowed on her. It was her greed and ignorance that ultimately led to her tragic downfall. As legend has it, she is still out there, forever lost, chasing after errant darts of light, hair in a tangled mess. No combs in sight.
Esther Mudget's fate serves as a reminder to revere and respect the Sprites lest you incur their wrath.
The Order's Origin
The Sprites on which the Origin of Enchantment's existence is based had been virtually undiscovered by humans until the turn of the century. A chance encounter with an energetic young scientist by the name of Esther Mudget changed the face of history forever.
Esther had been studying the pollination patterns of wild mushrooms and her research brought her to Gibbs Hill. This is where she encountered the most fascinating spiral configuration of fungi behind the castle ruins. Intrigued, she began to spend increasingly more of her time there to study.
One afternoon, thanks to her polite new neighbors, she brought a slice of fresh fruitcake to the mushroom site. She set the cake on nearby rock while she went about her work. Before long, she started to hear a peculiar whistling sound. She knew this sound was not human, so her instincts told her to crack a corny joke in hopes of diffusing a bad situation.
Apparently the Sprites liked her joke. And they really liked her fruitcake.
The disarmed Sprites came out of hiding and allowed Esther to see them in their true twinkly form. They whispered wisecracks and the mysteries of the universe in her ears. Little did she know this would be the start of a tender, though ill-fated relationship."
