In the fourth part of our review of Apartment Life, we're looking at Magic.

Looking mainly from the point of view of Ricardo Cartman who has become a White Warlock and his sister who is interested in the darker arts, we look at some of the spells that can be cast, what reagants are, how skills and alignments can improve and a witch or warlock can do with their grimoire and cauldron.
