Black Friday


1:33 am - HPfanextrm


Hey, there. You probably noticed by now already, but we had to keep the announcement a little behind the time to ensure those of you patiently waiting in line were first in the store. Black Friday is currently underway in London, with Naut Fur You and Borgin & Burkes both participating.

Go buy something already!

Daily Prophet November 2013


2:28 pm - themoon



The Mafia has taken over the Daily Prophet!

It's a small issue this month, but that's because the Mafia showed up halfway through the writing process, and made us all switch up our articles. You simply don't say no to the mob. Not cool you know? Our next issue will be much larger with our new family members writers!

If you have any general concerns about the this month's issue of the DP, please contact the boss, Il Profeto at the Daily Prophet Manor, or check in with our ConsigliereKitten050606 in Publication Management.

The house elves of Hogwarts are looking for a little help this holiday season: they want to build an item you come up with. A thread has been posted in the Ideas & Suggestions forum for you to submit your ideas. At the end of the week, we'll take the best suggestions we receive and place them in a poll for everyone to vote, and the winning idea will be brought to life by one of our talented item designers and given away this Christmas!

Check out the thread here for more details.

Black Friday


7:37 am - Nefarious Black


Have you been saving up? I sure hope you have. One week from today, November 29, Black Friday kicks off of the holiday shopping season. Two of the biggest stores in London will be participating: Naut Fur You and Borgin & Burkes. These two stores will each stock twice throughout the day on a staggered opening and closing schedule, featuring more than 50 different items. Quantities will be limited, and supplies will move quickly.

The schedule for store openings and closings is thus:

Friday, 12 AM Midnight HEX Time - Naut Fur You opens
Friday, 6 AM HEX Time - Naut Fur You closes, Borgin & Burkes opens
Friday, 12 PM Noon HEX Time - Borgin & Burkes closes, Naut Fur You reopens
Friday, 6 PM HEX Time - Naut Fur You closes, Borgin & Burkes reopens
Saturday, 12 AM Midnight HEX Time - Borgin & Burkes closes

Each time the two stores open, they will feature a completely new set of items: some popular old favorites, a few redesigned treasures, and dash of entirely new treats. This will be the only time these stores will open again before holiday season concludes, so ready those shopping lists for Christmas. Unsold stock from the first opening will not be available during the second, so do not hesitate hoping to pick up the same items later in the day.

Users will be permitted to purchase a maximum of three (3) items per store opening, for a total of twelve (12) items the entire day, should the maximum be purchased during all four openings. This is to ensure that enough users have reasonable opportunity to purchase something.

From today through next Thursday, November 28, a clue will be posted daily hinting at a different item that will be available for purchase. These clues may be found in this thread stickied in Diagon Alley.

Get ready to empty those vaults.

Also, offers have gone out for the new donation anniversary program. If you qualified, you should have received an event with instructions. If you did not receive one and know that you qualify, please owl me.

Lastly, after many requests, the option for a one-time purchase of Flitwick's Wand has been added to the donation upgrades page!

Monthly Role-Play Contests


10:27 pm - Xeneixian



On the 1st of every month, both the Groundskeepers and the RPC Moderators post new role-playing contests. The topics are widely varied; for instance, the Groundskeepers' contest this month involves Hogwarts students relaxing around the lake, while the RPC contest is based on the popular TV series, Monk. To keep track of when new contests are posted, you should put each of their respective watch threads on watch:

Role-Play Central Watch Thread | Groundskeepers' Watch Thread

Here's a taste of what each forum has to offer this month:

The RPC RP of the Month: Monk: Adrian Monk arrived at the scene of the crime a little late after insisting that his assitant drive at least 10mph below the speed limit. He walked in and surveyed the room. It looked like there had been quite a struggle. He moved slowly, taking in every detail. Suddenly, a frown appeared on his face and he started making a beeline for the opposite wall.

Thankful for the Company: Three friends were relaxing by the side of the lake farthest from the castle. They had all been swimming in the frigid water, much against the wishes of the professors, and had entirely worn themselves out avoiding the squid. Due to their complete lack of energy, they had fallen asleep on the grass. By the time they awoke, the stars were out, and the castle was locked. They'd have to wait until morning classes before going back up to the castle. For fear of running into Filch, they decided to camp out.

So grab a partner or two and put your writing caps on. Prizes await you. And don't forget to check back on December 1st for two new contests for your RPing pleasure!

6:59 pm - themoon



You're walking down the street, minding your own business, when a figure emerges from a darkened alley. In a hoarse whisper, he reads from a bit of parchment.

"Your presence is requested at the villa of Il Profeto. Don't ask questions, just show up tonight at midnight. You will be asked a question at the door, and if your response isn't, 'The Family,' you should turn around and run. Fast.'"


That's right, HEXians! It's time for Daily Prophet Applications! We are looking for dedicated writers who will be able to write at least one article per month. Head on over to the Entrance Hall to find out more about the applications, and more importantly, the deadline!
