In The Sims 4 Discover University you can join a secret society. It's actually really hard to find them on your own, so we thought it would be easier to write a guide for you.
The secret society is a group of Sims who 'worship' Sprites. Sprites are small bright creatures who have been mistreated by humans. Your job is to make them happy.
How to enter the secret society
Your Sim must make an offering to any statue in the school. The offerings must be some sort of food, flowers, crystals etc. But it must be something of excellent quality or a rare item. If you offer poor quality items to the statue, your Sim will be in a tense mood.
Surreal Focus Buff
Your Sim has a mysteriously good feeling about that offer. Almost as if it somehow made someone, somewhere very happy. The world seems a little more... sparkly.
Once you have made the right offer and obtained the Surreal Focus buff, the secret society will come to your house at night (or the next night). It doesn't matter where you are at the time. If you don't want to sign up, you can simply click "no thanks" when the popup appears.
What are the advantages of the secret society?
Sprites can give you great advantages, but you will have to keep them happy. They give an extremely useful 12-hour buff to help you study, improve your chances with your crush, stop your hunger from decaying or learn skills faster.
After you have been accepted as a member, your Sim is able to see sprites when it is dark on campus. When you receive a visit from a Sprite, you must entertain it.
Sprites love a good show, so make sure you keep them entertained by socialising with other Sims. A happy Sprite is a generous Sprite and your Sim wouldn't want to be boring ...
If you have managed to entertain them enough, they will give your Sim very useful moodlets. For example, if you have received the moodlet, your Sim will concentrate but it will also remove any feelings of hunger or lethargy. If you fail to entertain the Sprite, you will get a negative moodlet.
If you want to get rid of the negative moodlet, you can go to the ritual area and click on the stone to make an offering to the Sprites.
Leveling within society
Each time you complete an activity, it will increase your membership level.
The secrets of the spirits have been kept precious for generations. It is indeed a gift to be awakened to their blessings. Grant the sprites respectfully (or sweetly) and they will kindly return the favour. Snub them and things may not go as well for you.
They will give you the official Order of the Spell robe and mask for their new membership.
When your Sims switch to an experienced member, you can now perform the Sprite Attack on the others. You also get new clothes!
