Drop one or more sims into an empty neighborhood. If you can't think of a story, the sims will come up with one on their own.
I dropped a sim into an empty neighborhood that I downloaded. Originally I only intended to have her explore and make sure the lots worked okay, but the sims are making their own story anyway.
I had that, too! It was just an test hood for lots, an EMPTY test hood, and I dropped a clone of Rod Humble in there. I forgot to do anything to stop the newspaper girl from coming, so she spawned. Then I had Rod go to test a community lot, and the Charlatan spawned, so now there's a whole story about the three of them being the only ones left after the Apocalypse caused by a virus spread through Rod's computers!

(Dishonored's Void magic is very different than the Magic that Sims 2 Witches use. I don't know how to implement Windblast, Possession, the Arcane Bond etc in a way that would make Sims 2 play different.)
I don't know what any of that is, but I know what I'd do. I already rewrote all the spells in plain English with better rhymes. I'd make them into that kind and just pretend the rest, looking for whatever mods and such that came to me as I played.
