Poinsettias


6:27 pm - HEX Staff


Hagrid has opened his hut to everyone this year and given space for poinsettia growing! You can grow all different colors of poinsettias, depending on what seed you plant. Some colors are widely available, while with others you'll have to do some digging around to find.

To get started, check out the top of the Guide. Poinsettias will tell you when a certain action needs attention. In addition to this, there are special actions for poinsettias. These actions are not mandatory, but can greatly enhance your poinsettias. You can sell your poinsettia for galleons when it gets to a certain point.

What are you waiting for? Get to growing now!

Salazar Claus Steals Quidditch!


8:32 pm - Ninja Kitten


Egads, what do we do? The infamous Salazar Claus has kidnapped Madame Hooch for his own nefarious ends, forcing Professor Dumbledore to cancel all Quidditch matches until they can find and apprehend this criminal and rescue the poor damsel in distress. Thus far, there are no leads on where this sinister villain is hiding with his hostage, but rumor claims that the House teams will not play for the rest of the school year. Other rumors say that Rolanda and Salazar have eloped against the wishes of their friends and family and will be taking a long honeymoon. Only time will tell where the truth lies in these bizarre circumstances!

Please go to the Entrance Hall for more information on this disastrous event.

Eggnog and Snow


4:24 am - HEX Staff


Random events are now dropping that have the various ingredients you'll need to start making egggnog. Be on the look out for the following: Cream, eggs, nutmeg, sugar. If you want to make a special Grandpa's eggnog, you'll need his secret ingredient. It's not a requirement though! Once you have all of the ingredients, you can begin the process of making eggnog. You can then ask someone to help you finish creating the eggnog with a bowl of any snow type. If the person helps you, one of you will get a prize!

We promised more details about the snow, and they are here. Everyone now has a snowflake in their user info next to their usernames. Click this to view the person's snow info page. The page contains info like how big their house fort is so far, how many snowballs the user has collected, along with more to be added soon. There will be more to come about how snowballs can be used, so be sure to be collecting them!

Snowstorms and Snowballs!


8:58 pm - HEX Staff


Continuing RPC's theme of snow, today's release involves snowstorms and snowballs! Twice every hour at random times, a snowstorm will begin on the site, all over. Be sure to check the forecast in the HEXmas Forum to see what kind of snow one might expect during the hour. Collect snow with your bowls! Everyone has received 1 bowl to start. You can collect snow up to 2 times per storm. Additional bowls can be received through random events!

After you collect the snow, you will then have a certain bowl type. From there, you can create snowballs or help aid your house fort building! More details will be announced soon outlining what you can do with snowballs, along with more details about the forts. Stay tuned!



RPC Update - December


3:39 pm - picklebuddy7


The first flakes of winter sprinkled down from the sky. What started as a simple dusting of snow turned into a monstrous blizzard. Students became trapped inside the walls of Hogwarts for days on end while blankets of snow walloped the Hogwarts' grounds. Classes screeched to a halt and excitement filled the air.

Before long, the students were able to roam the grounds once more, and what better way to heat things up than with a stellar snowball fight? Join RPC for its December Roleplay of the Month: Snowball Fight! Put on some layers and join the fun!

You have until December 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.

Salazar Claus has come to town!


5:24 pm - HEX Staff


Salazar Claus was annoyed at all the cheer and goodwill that have been spread around the site and decided to cast some rather tricky Perpetual Summer Charms (hexes if you ask us) as we were all getting pumped for the next release of this holiday season. So, our fearless leader, John, is working hard to come up with a charm to counter this and give us back our holiday cheer.

Due to Salazar being up to his usual tricks, there is going to be a delay in this holiday's special releases. Today's activities will be pushed to tomorrow, and that means Saturday's activities will be pushed to Sunday. Yes, we're quite confident that John can figure out a way to counter the Perpetual Summer Charms by tomorrow, so stay tuned for more to come then.

Way More HEXmas!


10:37 pm - HEX Staff


Christmas Spirit

Christmas Spirit is back and ready for your submissions! This year there is something brand new for it. Approved Christmas Spirit submissions will show up as random events for everyone on the site. A page to view all of the submissions as well will be added when we get enough approved entries.

Candy Cane Grams

Candy Cane Grams are back and come with a redesigned page for them. A new feature this year: You can send candy cane grams anonymously. They are on sale now in Fred's Holiday Store! Speaking of Fred's, be sure to check the store out as he may have some interesting items this year.

Goodwill Stockings

Are you in need of more stocking stuffers? Feel free to sign up for goodwill stockings through the link at the HEXmas Forum. Have you received your 15 stockings but still want to send some out to those in need? Feel free to send them through the top of the HEXmas forum! The system automatically selects someone in need for you to send the stocking to, making things as easy as possible!

Mistletoe

A new random event has been added, having to specifically do with mistletoe. If you get a mistletoe placed over you, you must find someone to kiss. Until you do, you won't be able to owl or post anywhere. When you kiss someone, multiple things can happen, so check it out to see all of the possibilities!

Stay tuned for more HEXmas tomorrow!

HEXmas Trees and Gift Wrap!


5:38 am - HEX Staff


As mentioned, at least one new HEXmas addition will be added every single day this week! Today, two brand new systems are being released. They are:

HEXmas Trees

Everyone can have their own HEXmas tree in their user info, free of charge! To get a tree, you must go pick yours out at the Tree Farm. You can look at as many trees as you want, but whichever tree you do decide to chop down will be yours for the rest of the month. Presents can be placed under people's HEXmas trees. How do you do this? Read on...

Fred's Gift Wrapping Service

Fred and the house-elves are bringing everyone a whole separate gift wrap system from the existing inventory one. They wrap your gifts for you, along with delivering it under the receiver's HEXmas tree (and with all new gift wrap)! You can even wrap multiple items in 1 gift with this system. For more info, check out the link to the service in the HEXmas forum!

Things to Note

Fred's Gift Wrapping Service strictly delivers gifts under trees, not to inventories. Any gifts put under trees will not be able to be opened until the 25th. Also, on the 25th, everyone will be able to go around check out each other's trees and see what everyone received, and from whom (after the gift is opened by the person of course).

There's much more to come for HEXmas! Stay tuned for tomorrow!

The prizes for the HEXmas lottery are better than ever! There are many ways to obtain HEXmas Lottery tickets, and all the information as to how can be found here! This special lottery will go on for the entire month, with a drawing for all of the prizes to take place on January 1st.

Scavenger Hunts

A new addition this year are scavenger hunts. A HEXmas lottery task will be posted every other day in a different forum, and it's up to you find out where! The first task is posted within the HEXmas forum, here. The thread has a clue as to where the next task may be posted on the 3rd! You can get two raffle tickets per task submission!

Santa Daily Money

It has returned this year and early too! Be on the lookout, because you never know how much Santa will bump up the daily money. The amounts will be all over the place for the entire month. The multiplier hour will still occur as well during all of this.

More to Come

We will be releasing at least 1 new thing HEXmas related every single day of this week, so be sure to be looking at the announcements. We have so much planned to make this the best HEXmas yet!

Lastly, a big thanks to Alex for the very festive HEXmas layout!
