"Then he greeted Death as an old friend, and went with him gladly, and, equals, they departed this life." - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The world is a dark and scary place. Just how I like it. I hope to greet many of you as friends by the time we are through with this epic battle. Before that, however, you must prove your mettle and fortitude through a number of trials. Think of this as a way of demonstrating that you are truly worthy of departing this world alongside me, hand-in-hand. So, throw that invisibility cloak aside and let's get started. I don't like to be kept waiting. The most skilled and lucky among you might even come close to Conquering Death... but we're getting ahead of ourselves.

The first set of tests revolve around a particular kind of death: the death of singleness. Ms. Fleur Delacour has decided to intertwine her soul with her betrothed's, and it is now up to you to assist her with the preparations for this Wonderful Weasley Wedding. While devoid of any overt weapons, trust me when I say you'll need a strong temperament to survive this battle unscathed. There's nothing worse than a scorned bride-to-be, or so I've been told.

Moving on, you'll be required to prove that your quills are mightier than the sword in a daring task that, in my humble and unbiased opinion, revolves around a topic of utmost importance. With your closest comrade, you will recreate the story behind some infamous Hallowed Crafts, retelling the Tale of the Three Brothers and the mysterious and incredibly dashing figure who oversaw their efforts to forge the Deathly Hallows.

While wars cannot be won without copious exertions of energy, I can imagine that more finite souls might grow tired after running from Death Eaters for a measly two hours. In a rare show of mercy, I invite you to take a break, catch some fish, and bask in the sun's rays... but, what's this? Snatchers on the horizon? What terribly unfortunate timing. You had best get a move on so you Don't Get Snatched.

I hope that you've still got your quills handy, as this next trial is a doozy. While brute strength undoubtedly plays a role in any feud, true battles are nothing without a healthy dosage of subterfuge. So don your spy caps and come decode these Mixed Messages from the Potterwatch; the news they convey could prove crucial! Just how crucial, however, is up to you to decide as you pen your reaction to the messages or perish in the attempt.

Unsurprisingly, war yields a plethora of vivid memories - the good, the bad, and my personal favorite, the exceedingly gruesome. During the Battle of Hogwarts, a certain Severus Snape entrusted Harry Potter with his own memories. Through efforts of your own, craft one of the scenes that Harry gained access to through this Recollection Collection. As I'm quite literally-minded, also be sure to describe the memory you're portraying, lest you make me terribly unhappy.

Naturally, part and parcel of any wizarding war is the, in my opinion, needlessly ostentatious exchanging of spells. If flinging flashy magic at your foes appeals to your more killer instincts, then perhaps this war's Daring Duels are for you. I much prefer to claim souls by snapping my manicured fingers, but it's undeniable that these contests will prove challenging to even the most skilled witches, wizards, and wix. I hope you've sharpened your wands... or whatever it is you do with your pointy sticks.

Finally, an army is nothing without its soldiers. To acknowledge the importance of your combative Participation, each trial you attempt to overcome will earn you points. The 25 users who accrue the most points will then be invited to partake in the Final Battle of Hogwarts. Trust me when I say that you do not want to miss out on this elite showdown or the shiny fruits it will yield to those who emerge victorious. At the very least, those in the Final Battle will all receive a likeness of myself, which already makes it worthwhile, doesn't it?

Further, for those valiant troops who complete all of the participation team's mini-contests, I have a special prize in store: you will all be entered into a drawing for 30 shiny and new Magic is Might statues. Yay, oppression!
