    The school of wizards

    Did you ever wonder why there's a school of wizards in Summerville? Well, let me tell you about that...

    Do you know Emma? She calls herself a witch. Most times she's very busy, but maybe she will visit your town during Halloween. While that time of the year, she's always traveling from city to city, searching for rare goods. Emma is the foundress of Summerville's school of wizards.
    When Emma was a child, she used to visit her grand aunt Roberta nearly every day. Roberta lived in the Mystical old Land of Summerville. She was rather old but still fit and she was very knowledgeable in herbalism. Emma was a very wild child, always testing things up to the max. So Roberta had to patch up many minor injuries. And Emma was not her only patient. Many people of summerville came to visit Roberta in order to hear her advices. They used to call her the Old Land's Witch. One day Emma asked her, why people call her a witch and grand aunt Roberta answered:
    "Well sweetheart, most people that come to me, only need someone who will listen to them and take their problem seriously. I'm good at listening and I'm as old as a dinosaur, so I have much life experience that I can share. And don't forget that my tea is the best throughout Summerville *g*. So, when people leave after their visit, they mostly feel much better than before. They believe that this must be some kind of magic and so they call me a witch."
    Emma frown and said: "But this isn't Magic!" "Oh Darling", said Roberta "always remember one thing: helping others and trying to make the world a better place is what I would call real-life-magic. This is the magic in life that really matters, not some kind of hocus-pocus."
    Grand aunt Roberta died several years later and Emma, who was already grownup and finished her studies of pharmacie, inspired by Roberta's herbalism knowledge, moved into her grand aunt's house in the Mystical old Land. There she set up a laboratory, in order to research for medicines against rare diseases and establish the school of wizards. She placed a statue of her grand aunt into the garden infront of the house and at the bottom of the statue you can find a brass plate that says: School of Wizards - Open for everyone who wants to help others and make the world a better place

    I like mine to be organized, and since my town is owned by a company, you can easily see why. It would be easy to find a house you are looking for, they are all in a corner The factories? Over by the farm. The mine? Same place!

    I try to keep mine realistic, with an occasional dash of whimsy. I especially try to blend each piece with its neighbors in both function and color. So many towns are such a jumble that I shudder when I visit. I don't try to put every single piece of decor in use at the same time. I use seasonal stuff at certain times, and reserve snowmen for Christmas and bats for Halloween. Please visit. Regatta Racing Friends co-op, town is Greenton.

    Hi Greenton,
    your town looks beautiful. Especially the wedding hall and the photo center combined with the swan lakes and the bridges caught my eye

    Thank you Deadend :*
    I'm happy if you like the story, especially as it sounds like you are a real life magician yourself
    I just visited your town again and saw that it's under construction at the moment. As it seems it's going to be really beautiful The huge beach area is awesome!! I'm not sure at the moment, but before your redesigning, wasn't your town the one without cars? And with the Bikeshop right behind the train station? Or am I just confusing it with something else? In any case, I'm curious to see the final result of your rebuilding project Please let us know when it's done.
