Bonehilda is a classic character in The Sims franchise, first showing up as far back as The Sim's: Makin' Magic. She makes her return in Sims 4's new stuff pack Paranormal Stuff. Many of you will likely want to summon her because she is known to do a lot of the housekeeping. She doesn't require payment, and you can work her to the bone(s). So, of course, you're wondering — How do we get her?
How to Summon Bonehilda in The Sims 4
To answer this question, it depends on the context. You see, you can summon Bonehilda to clean your home, as a buddy that tags along with you while you investigate the paranormal, and you can even summon yourself to her. That's right; you can become Bonehilda. Let's get started on how to make your house a little more spooky (but clean!).
- An Old Maid: Bonehilda can be her classic self and do the housekeeping for you. This is fairly straightforward and generally what you'll do if you just want to summon her. You will need a séance table or to have the ability to perform a séance circle. Upon setting the table or circle, summoning her will show up as an option when you click on it. If you choose to use a séance circle, your Medium skill must be at least at level three if you want the option to summon Bonehilda. As a maid, Bonehilda will gladly cook, clean, repair, and chat. She'll even... *ahem*... WooHoo.
- A Bodyguard: This is a first for Bonehilda, as up until this stuff pack, she wouldn't leave her lot. As an advanced Paranormal Investigator, you can summon Broomhilda to act as a bodyguard while you inspect a lot. She will fend off malicious ghosts, such as Temperance (a new aggressive ghost NPC).
- Become Bonehilda: Another first for Bonehilda and yourself. When you are further in your Medium skill, you will unlock the option to perform a Ghastly Ritual. When performing this ritual, there is a rare chance that you could become Bonehilda for a short period. You won't open up any fancy new interactions, but it is a fun feature to enjoy about this new Stuff Pack.
As you can see, summoning Bonehilda is easy. Getting to the level you need to reach isn't difficult either, and it's the most time-consuming part of bringing back everyone's favorite Sim Skeleton.
Hey, wait! There are other NPCs to summon with this pack! You know How to Summon Guidry, right?
