A big thanks to Ted for getting the well image created and placed.

Gambling House & The Forge


2:26 pm - John


        

The Gambling House in Goblin City is now open for business. The first area for it is a betting game called Runic Aleatorem. Head on over to Goblin City and click the building with the "G" over it to enter the Gambling House. Also, try to avoid any of the mysterious goblins talking together in the shadows. Be sure to read the FAQ within the area before placing any bets.

The sweltering hot Forge has opened as well. The very same schematics that can be won at Runic Aleatorem (and other areas to be revealed in the future) can be brought to the goblin smith. For a modest fee, he will create you a piece of armor that will boost your HP when equipped. He also has a keen eye for goblin artifacts that may have fallen into the wrong hands, and he's willing to give whatever it takes to bring them back to the goblins. As a reminder, The Forge is in Goblin City, right next to the large dirigible plum tree.

So, head on over to Goblin City and place your bets now on Runic Aleatorem in the newly opened Gambling House.

A Shadow Over Hogwarts


3:01 pm - anushree


The Necromancer had chosen the perfect night for setting her plan into motion - the night of Halloween, when the air was already thick with fear. All she had to do now was to direct her pawns into the castle. She would just be a spectator of the chaos and the madness that would spread like wildfire.


The four house ghosts had been as easy as feeding rice to bowtruckles. The bit of magic she had to perform on them, however, was equally difficult. The effort had been worth it. She had succeeded in turning the ghosts into much more human forms - they had flesh, they could feel, and most importantly, they could hurt.


Standing at the castle gates, Zilla Nerezza waited for her force of the four former ghosts and one former poltergeist to join her. This is going to be fun, she thought.


Zilla plans to take over Hogwarts with the help of her army. Are you going to be a victim, or are you going to fight her? Welcome to the Hufflepuff Site-Wide, A Shadow Over Hogwarts. Make sure to avoid shady figures, and don't accept drinks from strangers; it might just be the Alihotsy Draught appearing out of nowhere!

Donation Program Refresh


7:02 pm - John



It has been over a year since any major changes have occurred to the donation program. After gathering lots of feedback from everyone about how to improve it, many changes have been made to better it as a whole.

The packages and upgrades areas are on separate pages now, for easier viewing. The bulk of the changes have occurred to upgrades, including new additions, as well as some price changes. One of the biggest additions is the Change Username upgrade. You now have the option of changing your username if you'd like (see the full info on this here). Other new additions include: Color-Changing Ink, Forum Title, Custom Wand, Flitwick's Wand, and Promoted Trends. One final upgrade I'd like to highlight is the brand new item, the Premium Unopened Chocolate Frog. Each pack contains 1 frog and 10 wizard cards. Score a shot at finding that potential rare card that you've been searching for.

As always, the usual popular upgrades are still available, like Change House and Change Blood Type. For more information, head on over to the new Donations Page.

Lastly, there is a brand new addition to the program, the Anniversary Reward. This addition allows one that holds onto any package subscription for 1 year or more to receive an existing rare item on every yearly anniversary. For more info on this new addition, click here. Existing subscriptions that are a year or older already will immediately receive this option within a few days, to make it fair for some that just had their yearly anniversary.

Thank you!



Clash of the Titans


4:08 am - yuki_chan




In keeping with the theme, the room was festively decked out like a Greek temple. Enormous Ionic columns stretched all the way to the ceiling, while marble statues were placed tastefully around the hall, interspersed by tinkling fountains. The platforms themselves were covered with white cloth like ancient altars, and all manner of offerings were laid out upon them: fruits, a few symbolic animals, and such. Lockhart had even managed to gather a group of students to dress up as the temple attendants in plain white robes while carrying burning sticks of incense. He'd even managed to find a couple of those strange, Muggle "fog machines" and placed them in the corners of the room to add to a misty, ethereal feel...


The last set of dueling matches has resulted to Gryffindor receiving 21,500 House Points for winning their first a team victory this term, while Ravenclaw has earned 8,500 House Points for a team loss. This is the second set of duels for this term. Who will succeed: the knowledgeable Ravenclaws or the loyal Hufflepuffs? The epic battle has begun. Head to the Great Hall and see for yourself.

A Restock of Thrones


9:05 am - Sophia Oceanborn



The Small Council proudly invites you to the greatest feast Westeros has seen. You can take part in the Hand's Tourney, get your own Sellsword and dine with the noblemen of the great Houses of Westeros. If that doesn't appeal to you, you can choose to take a look at our stands where the finest goods imported from the Free Cities are sold.

Don't be late! Winter is coming soon.

P.S.: Be careful. Take the Kingsroad and don't stray away. The forests are dark and full of terrors.

11:25 am - themoon



Board the train to haunts and spooks in this Daily Prophet.

Oh my goodness, it's been far too long, HEX. My personal apologies for the delay between the last edition of DP and this one. We had some great articles, but an Editor switch and RL stuffs caused me to put off editing for a bit.

In this edition of the Daily Prophet, we have articles from September (anything to do with trains) and October (Halloween, yo.) We hope you enjoy reading, and look forward to any and all comments!

If you have any general concerns about the this month's issue of the DP, please contact GSP827 at the Daily Prophet Offices, or check in with Kitten050606 in Publication Management.
