HEX Halloween Party

4:31 am - HEX Staff

We told you there was a lot more coming in The Pumpkin Patch, and it just keeps on coming. Along With the Ravie Sitewide, and the pumpkin growing, for the next 3 days we are having the Hex Halloween Party in here too! There will be REs, and not just regular REs, but REs that will have you searching high and low for everything you need to make your own pumpkin pies and caramel apples. These treats can only be enjoyed with another user, but the act of sharing pleases the spirits of the Halloween sky, and they are known to give pixelated blessings once done. We also have another great free raffle with lots of ways to get more free tickets for you chance to win a sorting hat.

There is a lot going on, and we have worked hard to make everything as easy to understand as possible. Please go to the thread in the Pumpkin Patch for a quick how to guide as well as a place for questions and answers. Also, a big thanks to Alex for the Halloween layout!

Troll in the Dungeon

What are you waiting for? Click here to take your shot at the troll and have some fun with us! Maybe you'll randomly find something when you stop by!

Surely, you didn't think The Social Media team had forgotten about Halloween coming up? No. We, also, have something planned for you. First, answer me this...

What do you get when coffee spills, the team is too hyper on candy to focus on planning, and all of the planning papers have been not-so-mysteriously burned up by somebody who felt like we needed a bonfire?

You get Halloween Media Madness!

That's right, 15 days of crazy Halloween fun! Witches and werewolf takeovers, facts, activities, and more await you!

So what are you waiting for? Check it out now!

Pumpkin Fair

1:55 am - HEX Staff

Who is ready for the fair? We have quite the teaser to share with you, and we think it will make everyone want to participate in the competition. To start with, the top five people in the top 50 list, will all get substantial prizes. And what is your incentive to try if you don't think you can get in the top five? We are doubling up on those five substantial prizes and randomizing the remaining 45 people on the list for that second set of five.

Now, for the juicy part: the prizes. Grand prize will be a Time Turner, and then the four founder wands will be randomized out to the next four on the list. A second set of those same five prizes will be randomized to the following 45 people on the list. Lastly, we want you all to know that no one, who enters a qualifying pumpkin in the competition, will leave empty handed. Now, who is ready for the fair?

Another note on pumpkins... all pumpkins that reach Hagrid-size will qualify to spin the wheel. The wheel can give great rares, galleons, and ultra rare pumpkin carvings. Trade your Hagrid-sized pumpkin in today and spin the wheel to see what you can get!

Also, you may have noticed that fall is truly now in the air around the site. The brand new layout was made by Alex. She did a great job in making the site feel like the season!

RPC Update - October

8:07 am - picklebuddy7

Rumor has it that there's a haunted house in the neighborhood. Some people will believe anything, won't they? They're probably afraid of their own shadows, ha! But not us! We're not afraid of the "boogey man" or the dust bunnies under our beds!

...wait, did you hear that? It's coming from over there. Why don't you check that out while we stand guard (over here, where it's safe). Don't worry, you can bring someone with you! It'll be an adventure!

Join RPC for its October Roleplay of the Month: Monsters at Midnight! Get ready for some thrills and chills!

You have until October 31st at 11:59 pm HEX time to complete your roleplay. Prizes will be awarded for the best character, the best plot, and the best overall post.

Arts & Graphics - October Contests

9:07 am - Sophia Oceanborn

I know what you're thinking. A Halloween theme during the month of October? How creative. I can assure you, though, the A&G Staff hasn't run out of ideas.

So yes, we're going to celebrate Halloween too. With a twist: we decided to create a non-scary atmosphere, and you will be asked to do the same in our Writing and Graphics challenges!

If you're still not convinced, maybe these will:
1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
3rd Place: 2,000 Galleons + 1,000 House Points

Pumpkin Patch

12:42 am - HEX Staff

Welcome to the pumpkin patch, it's located just on the outskirts of Hogsmeade, a quick walk from the castle. All students will be allowed daily access to the patch with Hagrid as both escort and guide, so that you may grow your own pumpkins this year. There will be lots of rewards for your efforts and the opportunity to showcase your best pumpkin at the fair, later in the month, for even bigger prizes. At the top of the forum you'll find the pumpkin cart, where you can buy seeds, tools and supplies for growing and tending your own pumpkins. The surprises will keep coming all month ,as everyone's pumpkins continue to grow. So pull out your warm flannel and wool, grab a cup of hot apple cider to warm your bones, and let the October activities begin.

Start here.
