Buffs are thoughts, emotions, and sensations that medieval Sims can experience. Most buffs affect a Sim's Focus, either positively or negatively, but some buffs have other effects or do nothing. A buff with a negative affect is also known as a "debuff". While some buffs only last for a limited amount of time, other buffs last for as long as the source of the buff is present. (e.g. "Nicely Decorated" for as long as the sim is in that room)
