It seems that several students managed to get their hands on some vials swirling with memories. After finding a pensieve in the Room of Requirement, they dumped the memories into it. Now, it's up to you to follow them through the ten memories and see how things came to be at Hogwarts as the Caretakers present the Caretakers Decathlon - Hurtling Through Time!

RPC Teaching Center :: April Update


10:59 am - Cait



The Teaching Center is back at it again with a full set of learning opportunities and activities with House Points up for grabs!

Through the past months, we in the teaching center have focused on a number of different roleplaying aspects. Though all of these different aspects are very important, arguably, no aspect of roleplaying is more important than grammar. Grammar helps improve how we are understood, allowing for us to be heard, and to express exactly what you mean to your readers and your partners. Join us in Grammar 101 to get practice on editing and correcting roleplay grammar. Then, try using your skills to make your own posts in this month’s Beginner Roleplay Surprise-Surprise, and tell us about a surprising situation!

Additionally, the Teaching center would like you to congratulate our Student of the Month for April, Kasey ! Do you think you've got what it takes to be the next Student of the Month? Check out the Student of the Month thread to learn more about it! Last but by no means least, we are on the lookout for new mentors! Think you have the skills to teach others how to roleplay? Then check out our Mentor Applications to learn more about becoming an RP Mentor!

Publications Management - April Updates


11:08 am - Morgan93



April showers bring May flowers - and also some new and exciting things over in The Newsstand. To start, we have the March Daily Prophet focusing on women in all their glory. Our April discussion takes this wonderful theme and runs with it. So come join us in talking about historical and inspiring women!

Now, what would you consider the opposite of May flowers? Did you just say garbage? Because that's exactly what the Quibbler served up in March. No, I'm not talking about their extraordinarily talented writers - just their topic, which took a heavy look into spring cleaning! Our discussion this month focuses on just that - your trash.

Not all of our publications took the bright and happy route with their issues last month. The WWN's broadcast took a dive into the dark, examining the biased era of pureblood-superiority. Our contest this month takes a stab at recreating what it's like to move in secrecy as a targeted member of society with some puzzles for you to solve. Come join us in When Evil Prevailed. Participation in any and all of the events this month could earn you not only some House Points or other shiny prizes, but also tickets to the Newsstand Quarterly Raffle!

RPC April Updates


8:00 am - Morgan93



This month, the RPC is traveling back to our childhood as we read fairy tales and play with toys. Let's begin with a story, shall we? Once Upon a Time, two fairy tales collided headfirst. But - uh oh! - what happened next? Only you can tell us in April's Roleplay of the Month.

After writing about some fairy tale characters, take some time to explore who is hiding in your imagination. Come over to the Freestyle and tell us all about your Concealed Companion. Unleash your inner child, and let them have fun with their make-believe friend.

Over in the Lounge, we've found a toy! But it unfortunately seems to be lacking some important details. We need some help fixing our Jack-in-the-box, but What's in the Box? is up to you! Finally, we have some whimsical prizes in the April Participation Raffle that could be yours if you join our playtime this month!

Magical Archives - April


7:43 pm - Edmundus



April is here, and the new Apprentices have been hard at work trying to find you a job. Where, you ask? Well, it appears the Ministry is hiring and you may just be worthy. Find out with the Ministry Entrance Exam.

But the Vault has plenty more besides. Don't forget the galleons available in the Contest System. And if you have any questions about the Archives or the people who run them, then maybe you should ask in The Archivists and Where to Chat with Them. All comments and concerns are always welcome, too, in the Magical Archives Comment Box.

But with a dozen forums, there's plenty else to enjoy. Check the Table of Contents to see all the goings on in the Magical Archives. And be sure to keep tabs on the Watch Thread so that neither the house points nor the Book of Records will slip through your fingers.

Scamander's Shocking Snafu!


12:02 am - HEX Staff



It seems HEX is about to learn all about what happens when magical experiments go wrong! Newt Scamander was attempting some sort of shenanigans (he's refusing to explain properly), and now everyone has been turned into different kinds of creatures. We're sure Newt and all the other Magizoologists think this is a delightful turn of events, but the rest of us aren't so sure. On the other hand, we haven't heard a lot of complaints yet, just a bunch of squawks, squeaks, snorts, and snuffles.

Newt promises us he's working on a cure, so we can only hope this animal epidemic won't last forever. But until things are fixed, you'll find all of your avvies are creatures and all of your posts are creature speak. The only place you'll be able to talk normally is right inside Newt's Trunk.
