St Mungo's Magical MadnessPosted by Brandon on October 21, 2017 - 7:37 am
We're taking you back to 1975 when the Marauders were still at Hogwarts. We all know what type of trouble these boys liked to cause, so we can deduce that Halloween was no different. This year, they decided to throw a Halloween party in the Room of Requirement to celebrate. It's really too bad that the party didn't last as long as they wished. Over half of the party-goers ended up spending the night as St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.
Courtesy of Professor Dumbledore, the pumpkin patch has been transported to St Mungos due to the vast amount of students who are, unfortunately, spending the holiday there.
Do you find yourself in need of some spooky entertainment? St. Mungos Magical Madness could be the cure you've been looking for.

The Asylum ArchivesPosted by Vicki on October 14, 2017 - 5:01 pm
There seems to be a lot of mystery surrounding how Peeves the Poltergeist came to be, and it is with that desire you dare head to the one location you can find out. Knockturn Alley has long been a place of dark shops and seedy characters, but tucked deep within its walls lies a secret asylum burning to be explored. And from the rumors popping up around the school, it seems Peeves' beginning may be linked with the abandoned building. However, as quickly as you arrive, you're just as easily trapped by that menacing spirit that eagerly followed you there. Now with the help of your mind and your friends, you must complete the various activities that stand in your way of escape.
Can you discover the origin of Peeves and find your way back to Hogwarts? Join us in a new Halloween tale, The Asylum Archives!

A Mystery to SolvePosted by HEX Staff on October 8, 2017 - 11:55 pm
The leaves are changing colors, the air is starting to get chilly, and pumpkin spices are making their way into every kind of food. Which surely means pumpkins are coming to . . . but wait! Hagrid's store of pumpkin seeds is empty? And where are all the tool kits and supplies? They've gone missing! And all that's in their place seems to be some ginger hairs!
Well, folks, we seem to have a pumpkin mystery on our hands. We'll start looking for some replacement pumpkin supplies and see if we can't get some Aurors to help us investigate. But in the meantime, keep your eyes open as you explore HEX. Maybe you'll find some clues lying around the castle that could lead to our ginger-haired thief.
