You Could Be The Next HEX Idol!

4:25 pm - Xeneixian

That's right folks: HEX Idol is back for it's FOURTH season, and you could be the next star singer of HEX!

If you've got a good voice, or even if you just love singing, head on over to the Entrance Hall and get ready to sing your heart out. Auditions will be held in the Entrance Hall until September 2nd. Auditions will close at 5pm HEX time, so make sure not to delay.

The winner will be signed to the Crookshanks Records magic music label, receive 100,000 Galleons, earn 7,500 Points for their house, have the chance to win some other awesome prizes, and most importantly earn the title of HEX Idol 2011. The new HEX Idol will join the esteemed ranks of past winners lmnop567, lil miss magic, and Iguna. You've got some big names to live up to!

But don't worry: none of the Top 15 will walk away empty-handed. For each round you advance you earn more points for your house, more honor and prestige for yourself, and Gideon Crumb (esteemed bagpiper of the Weird Sisters) will make a special appearance at the finale. You won't want to miss this.

Not a singer? Not a problem. HEX Idol isn't just for the contestants. Everyone can head to the Entrance Hall at any time to listen to the competitors sing, cheer them on, talk about - and with - your favourites, and most importantly VOTE for who you want to win each week. (Head over to the AUDITIONS to see how you can win points and prizes just for keeping up with the competition.)

Happy 10th Birthday, Hex!

12:00 am - John

Today officially marks Hogwarts Extreme's tenth birthday. Happy Birthday, Hex! The past ten years have been quite the roller coaster, with so many things happening over the course of a decade. Hex has become the site that it is today because of you, the users. We appreciate all that you do to keep Hex alive and thriving. We hope to still be serving you with the greatest content possible for ten more years to come.

To celebrate Hex's tenth anniversary, the following things are happening:

- Hex has a brand new section, Fan Fiction. The Fan Fiction section is a place where everyone can write stories and publish them on Hex. Users can then read, review, rate, and interact with every published story. To write a story you will need to purchase a story quill and story parchment from Luna's General Store in Diagon Alley. Also, just to note, at first the main page of Fan Fiction will look pretty empty. Stories must be published first for the page to fill out. Fan Fiction was made possible by Kelly (Tori Tendleswift), Mary (Sapphire Smoke), and Aaron. I could not have done it without them.

- Diagon Alley has a new store, Luna's General Store, as mentioned above. The store will stock general items, like the story quill and story parchment. Trophy cases are making a return, as they are now stocked in this store. More items will be added to the store soon.

- We are also accepting any memories you have had over the past ten years. Please submit your Hex memories here. All memories will be posted for everyone to see. Submit as many as you'd like.

- A new layout has been added as the main site layout, titled Ten Year Celebration. The layout was created by Lydia (SofiaR). Great job!

- Random events with new rare items will be occurring today and the days to come. As always, the events will be completely random, meaning anyone can get one. Also, excessive refreshing will result in the server automatically azzying.

Again, Happy Birthday, Hex, and enjoy!

I also would like to formally announce a promotion. Erin (Thatsme) is now a staff member for the site. This is much deserved, and I know she will do extremely well. Congratulations!

Last but certainly not least, The Final Battle has begun. Those brave enough to endure all previous Horcrux challenges will find themselves eligible to participate. They will be faced with obstacles even more challenging than before. Will the Dark Lord fall? Will the safety of the Wizarding World be restored? It's up to you.

The House Cup

1:49 pm - Xeneixian

Though John has already announced the winner of the House Cup, I want to reiterate the congratulations due to Slytherin for their narrow victory. In honor of your first House Cup win, all Slytherins who helped contribute to this victory can find a special prize waiting for them in their Common Room from now until classes begin. Don't forget to claim yours!

In other news, prizes for those who managed to finish the term as a Top Student will be announced within the next week. If you were a Top Student last term, keep your eyes on the Entrance Hall! You won't want to miss out.

Finally, O.W.L. and N.E.W.T. exams for those 5th and 7th year students who were promoted at the end of last term will become available within the next few days. Make sure to study hard! Don't let your professors down.

Teachers Announced for the 2011-2012 School Term

1:24 pm - Jaessa

Teachers have been selected for the new school term! Please visit the Entrance Hall to view the posted list. Congratulations to everyone on the teachers and substitutes list for this term!

His Most Loyal Servant. His Only Friend.

12:00 am - HPfanextrm

Riddle knew that the Diary had been destroyed. That foolish Malfoy would pay for treating his belongings with such dishonor. He needed to make another. He need not think of another brilliant hiding place for this one, for she would never leave his sight. She would not need additional enchantments to protect her; she could easily fight back. That idiot girl who had provided him with information about his hidden servant and the tournament soon to be held at Hogwarts would do for the murder. He would give her life a purpose after all.

Nagini became his final Horcrux with the murder of Bertha Jorkins. His final Horcrux would be the most difficult to destroy. Will you be able to destroy her in The Quest for the Horcruxes?

The Ultimate Sacrifice.

12:00 am - Heather

The Unintentional Horcrux
Something had appeared in Riddle's path that he feared might threaten his rise to power and immortality. His most faithful servant told him of a prophecy about the birth of a son at the end of July. What could this boy to do stop the almighty Lord Voldemort? A baby was no match for the most powerful wizard who ever lived. No matter. Riddle would see to it that the boy was taken care of before he could ever become a threat.

The boy's mother would not move. What a fool she was. There was no need for her to die. If she would not step aside, she would simply meet the same end as her husband had, and her son soon thereafter. A flash of green light and she fell to the ground like all the others. Riddle turned to the boy and raised his wand. A moment later he was nothing. Something had gone terribly wrong.

Proceed to The Quest for the Horcruxes.
