I guess I should be glad that we're so close to being able to have a Sims 4 Life State Dynasty (sim, alien, vampire, mermaid, caster, plus the pseudo life states) but I'm honestly kinda skeptical. We'll see about this.

Glimmerbrook?!? Really, "Found Filled" as the alternate to "Forgotten Hollow" would have been my preference <G>

Now for my first of likely many opinion replies. I am so, so, so, excited.I bounced up and down as I watched the trailer. It looks so, so cool. I love the look of the Magic Realms lot. I love that Magic can kill your sim if they aren't careful. A new ghost for my collection! I love the concept of familiars and how they aren't afraid of death and may protect you from it. I love they are adding a new fully fleshed out lifestate. The animations look so cool! I am bouncing for joy as I type this.

There is one thing that I learned that disappoints, no new woohoo spots.

Only 21 days until I get to play this! This is like Christmas except less fighting and unhappiness and well just better! I really feel for the console players that have to wait.

Livestream Sept 6 no time as of now

Do we have any reason to believe it won't be at the same time as usual?

@sdhoey no problem. I love reading tweets on packs I am excited for and if I am wasting time on twitter, reading other forums and sim fan sites that gather tweets and the like I may as well bring it here so we can be up to fate as well. Most every thing I read makes me smile with this pack. I am having fun.

So far nothing that important tweeted I can see this morning yet so no new tweets to update. I did notice something cool. 10 Gurus have new avatar picks of what I and others believe are the new familiars. Add in the Cats, dogs, raccoons and foxes that is 14 familiars in total.

Here is some avatar picks












The one I am most excited for is the leafbatpig, and the owl the only ones I could find official notice of it's species associated directly to the avatar. Leafbatpigs are coming to the game!!!! We also know one is a crow, a dragon and a fairy. Although I am not sure which is the fairy the other two are easy to guess.

@sdhoey That or the black bunny with butterfly wings. But not going to declare the fairy until sure I am not say. none of look too fairy like to me.

I updated my fact page. Disappointed there is no new career. That and that there are no new woohoo spots. Cat and dog familiars are starting to sound functionally different then other familiars. I hope to learn more soon from my mystical crystal ball I am using to divine the future of my sims game. Anyway I will finally have a good use for the witch clothing from spooky stuff. Never been into dressing my sims in costumes, but if they are actual witches, warlocks, wizards and sorcerers well that is different. Oops I meant spellcasters.

OK more tweets updated above.

And the bottom familiar is bunnerfly

OK, lets get some discussion going so I don't feel like I am talking to myself or spamming this thread every time I update the info on the info reply.

OK how excited are you people?

As I have said I am extremely excited. I haven't ever been more excited. I love occults and this looks very well done. I am literally bouncing for joy since I seen the trailer.

What are your plans for the pack?

I am most definitely getting it. First I am going to raise up a sim with a perfect start to explore the pack with. I will do everything I can with that sim. Including making that sim a grand parent as I read somewhere about a multigenerational bonus trait or something somewhere. I will also have that sim have a cat and dog familiars. I also so want that leafbatpig familiar. I will get it. I will collect them all! I will also collect the new ghost form spell death. Try out all the spell. And yes that sim will live in Glimmerbrook. I love the looks of that town. And that is just to start. I have so many ideas running through my head.

What are you most excited for?

as foe me, Of course spells and spell casting. I have been hooked on magic in sims since making magic in sims 1. Witches have always been my favorite occult in sims, well until vampires in sims 4 as they are extremely well done. But this looks to top this. Spells and perks? Alchemy and familiars? Curses to dread and flying on brooms? I am can't wait. I am bouncing with excitement. Did I mention I love occults in sims?

A new death is always a plus. And LEAFBATPIGS!!!!!!!! so cool. And that hidden magic real looks so interesting.

Are there anything that disappoints you that you read?

Kinda. I an sad no new woohoo spots are opening up.  I guess no woohooing on the brooms. But I can easily over look that.

How excited are you people?
Anything that adds life states to the game or adds new things to the game excites me. I won't be getting it straight away, I don't think, but I probably will in time.

Plans for the pack?
Reenactment of magical events in Eddings/Feist/Brooks/Goodkind/Tolkien/Martin/etc will be happening, I think.

What are you most excited for?
Magic Users not being called Witches. :)
On the other hand, I'm also excited that I may be able to create my own version of Agnes Nutter, Witch who writes her own book of prophecies.

Anything that disappoints you that you read?
The name of the new world. Also kind of miffed that they lost the chance to call it Realm of Might & Magic ... but they may have gotten into trouble with the might & magic game franchise if they did that. :)

OK how excited are you people?
I'm trying to manage my expectations after Island Living, but... seeing that floating Realm of Magic gave me goosebumps. I found supernaturals mostly annoying in TS3, but Vampires were so well done in TS4 I still have hope.

What are your plans for the pack?
I'm with you with the super sim and gotta catch them all familiars. The multi-generational bonus is very interesting; I rarely play legacies, as I get attached to my founders and find raising multiple children tedious. This gives me a reason to have a powerful magical clan and change my usual gameplay.

What are you most excited for?
POTIONS! I have a few mods that change herbalism, as I find it a really cool skill that is sadly underused. Spells too, of course. In particular the "Copypasto" spell as possible replacement for a cloning machine. I liked brooms in TS3, but wonder how they will work here. There has been some teasing regarding stairs (I'm one of the spiral staircase nutjobs), but it might have been trolling. Most of all, I'm excited this won't be a University pack ::)

Are there anything that disappoints you that you read?
No new career, no hybrids. I like the magical bloodline thing from a storytelling perspective, but still wish I could get a spellcasting mervampire...

It looks nice in many ways and as something cool for the game but I don't know if/when I'll get the pack. Maybe I'll wait and see what's the next EP rumored for the end of 2019 and if both that EP and RoM were up to my tastes, I'd bundle them.
As usual, I'll wait to see the livestream and the features to see if it's a pack I might enjoy playing.

@mousef we have confirmation on spiral stars NOT being in the pack or a free update coming soon. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. See today's tweets above for the official comment from sim guru Ninja.

Notice I did yet another update.

@Playalot Thanks for posting Carl's Ream of Magic page.

More I read the more I want this pack. My expectations are getting absurd and I am trying to rein them in but they are making it so hard. I want this pack now. I may start knowing what I know not I may start out trying to get third or forth generation spellcasters before I make my super sim. To make that sim super super sim. I wonder if having father winter father the child will mess it up? I can't wait to find out.
