RE Abuse Policy: A reminder and clarification

Posted by HEX Staff on June 24, 2017 - 6:51 am

With the introduction of the new (lovely and exciting) spells system, there have been quite a few questions raised on whether looking for spells counts as Random Events (RE) abuse. In addition, with the ever increasing amount of events thrown on HEX that include the use of REs, we felt that it was in everyone's best interest to further clarify our Random Event Abuse Policy and maintain it in a public place for all to read.

In order for things to be (hopefully) clearer and more accessible to everyone, we are introducing a new format, a FAQ. This FAQ can be found here. It contains detailed information on what is a Random Event, what counts as random event abuse, what are the consequences of such abuse, and much more.

Remember, random events are made for you. They are meant to be fun, and to reward those users who are active on the site. We are not here - nor do we wish in any way - to monitor all activity on HEX, or to make anyone's life harder. We're here simply to take care of the cases where users are breaking the rules for profit. We're here to help you.

So, help us helping you. You can find more detailed information on this matter in this post.

Thank you.

You Can't Be Sirius

Posted by Sara on June 18, 2017 - 3:53 pm

Sirius Black is not having a good summer. His family is driving him crazy, and to make matters worse his Hogwarts friends seem to be having far more fun over the holidays than him. Today has been a particularly bad day, and as Sirius heads to bed he can’t help but wish he were in someone else’s shoes…


The Slytherin Staff are proud to present You Can’t Be Sirius – join us as we explore a number of parallel universes in which Sirius Black steps into the shoes of Muggle actor Gary Oldman, as well as celebrating the best Gary Oldman portrayal of them all: Sirius Black himself during his time at Hogwarts.

June Fan Fiction

Palms sweating...hands shaking...the velvet box almost slips from his fingers. He just needs to get the words out. She's gonna say yes. He knows it. And as he starts to bend down on his knee, his balance waivers, knocking over a bowl of hot soup into his girlfriend's lap. Oh no...

There are important milestones in a relationship. A first kiss. Moving in together. Getting engaged. Getting married. We imagine that these moments are perfect, but life isn't that at all. Join Fan Fiction once more for our June Theme Prompt for a chance to win an item, galleons, and house points!

Don't forget to join in the other activities that Fan Fiction also has to offer so you can win tickets for our Monthly Raffle.

From the Grounds!

Posted by Char on June 11, 2017 - 12:12 pm


The Shrieking Shack has always been full of mysteries. What happens when a rumor begins once people start seeing activity in there? Is it true, or is it someone pranking the students? Head off to the Shrieking Shack forum and figure out the truth behind these rumors in Mystery in the Shack. All entries are due June 30, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. HEX time.

As it has been over six months since the release of the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie, the spoiler ban on content relating to the movie has now been lifted. This includes roleplays as well.

Please keep the Grounds' Watch Thread on watch for updates regarding activities and events like the current Bi-Weekly Chat, as well as Roleplay and Roleplayer of the Month.
