Discovering Newt's Chronicles


5:22 pm - ThornShield


Hogwarts is a magical place. With every step you can discover something new and exciting that could lead you on a special adventure of your own. This is exactly what happens when one knowledge-hungry Hufflepuff, Chadwick Doran, discovers a hidden compartment in the bookshelves of the Hogwarts Library. From the hidden compartment, he pulls out a set of dusty parchments. Examining the pages closer, he discovers that the parchments are actually the early notes of Newt Scamander's Magical Beasts and Where to Find them. Naturally, the information about the manuscript spreads all over Hogwarts and soon everyone wants to read the pages that are filled with deep and detailed knowledge about magical beasts of the world.

With the newly acquired knowledge, the students are guided towards their own fun adventures. So, what are you waiting for? Go and join the fun in the Hufflepuff Site-Wide, Discovering Newt's Chronicles.

Of course, you can have a look at the manuscript too. However, treat it carefully. There are rumors of torn pages of the manuscript being seen floating around.

A Night at the Department of Mysteries


6:22 pm - icemousey


Yes, it's true. Due to some mismanagement of funds by our dear Minister, the Ministry will hold its first-ever fundraising gala so that the Department of Mysteries can continue to pay its Unspeakables.

The tickets are an extraordinary value -- the Unspeakables have slowed time down for the event. Spend two whole weeks in a single, unforgettable night. Music, dancing, unforgettable silent auction items, fun, games -- you've never experienced anything like it.

Let us entertain you at A Night at the Department of Mysteries!

The Big Sale is On All Weekend!


4:32 am - Nefarious Black


In NFY this weekend is a big sale like nothing you have ever seen on hex before. Over 100 different items will be rotating through the store at random intervals. All Prices are 7k - 100k and are all priced well below common owl search/market prices. Each user will be able to buy 2 items total, and there will be NO having other users buy more for you so you can stock up. This is not a way for the rich to get richer. This is hopefully a way for everyone to have some fun. Please post any questions in the Entry Hall thread. Enjoy!

March 2014 Daily Prophet is up!


10:57 am - Samantha Bradley


* * * * * * * * * *

It's that time of month once again! We are proud to bring you the March editiion of the Daily Prophet. Inside you will find many things relating to the luckiest holiday of all - St. Patrick's Day. We can all use a little more luck, but we cover so much more! If you want to know what's been happening here on HEX, we cover all that, too. You don't want to miss a thing!

I would like to note that I have taken over as Editor of the Daily Prophet, with Kay85 moving up to Assistant Editor. There will be other changes going on, too, as we are looking for three new writers. This presents a great opportunity for some of you writers who may be interested. I know a lot of you have dreamed of writing for the Daily Prophet, so here's your chance! All you have to do is write up a sample article which you think would be appropriate for our paper (refer to this issue for ideas on the kind of material we are seeking) and owl it to Samantha Bradley on or before April 10th. Good luck, and we look forward to seeing some of you here on staff soon.

If you have any general concerns about the this month's issue of the DP, please contact the Daily Prophet, or check in with Ninja Kitten in Publication Management

Dueling - Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff


5:24 pm - Ninja Kitten


Ah, the springtime of youth, of love and hate and wild passions. What better time is there to duel? In honor of the change of seasons, the ever-so-talented Professor Gilderoy Lockhart has prepared a stunning arena for the final match of the year, filled with everything that one associates with spring: flowers, baby animals, and, of course, the bright and gentle sun. Those with hay fever are suggested to take a potion for alleviating allergies before they proceed to the Great Hall to watch the grand finale of the dueling season!

The last set of dueling matches resulted in Slytherin receiving a total 22,500 House Points for 5 individual wins and a team victory, while Ravenclaw earned 7,500 House Points for a team loss. This time, though, the battle is between fierce Gryffindor and fair Hufflepuff, the two houses on opposite sides of the House Point Race. Can the badgers bring about a shocking upset, or will the lions tear them to shreds?

It's a Really Big Sale!


6:10 pm - Nefarious Black



"The focus would be on smaller items priced reasonably, with the purpose of making quite a few a little more common, to ensure a larger quantity of different items in the 100k and under bracket."
That was the premise and we have finally got the plan all down. Starting Saturday at 12:01 am, NFY's doors will open and there will be a weekend long sale that is for you. There will be approximately 60 different items so the stock will constantly be rotating. No item will cost over 100k, all will be priced to sell. Does it sound too good to be true? Well, there will be limits. Each user will only be able to buy 2 items total, and there will be NO having other users buy more for you so you can stock up. This is not a way for the rich to get richer. This is hopefully a way for everyone to have some fun. So mark it on your calenders today, because you will not want to miss this.

St. Patrick's Day


12:00 am - John


St. Patrick's Day is here! A day of green and lots of celebration. All of that will be occurring here on HEX of course! Be on the look out for multiple REs throughout the day with many items. Throw some auld sod to your friends, or club them with Seamus' Shillelagh. Share the luck with a four-leaf clover to them. Also, be on the look out for tickets to multiple drawings!

To make things fair for everyone, we are starting a new RE policy. Anyone detected by the server that excessively refreshes, goes from page to page excessively, etc. will automatically be added to an RE ban list and will not receive any future REs. Do not bulk buy on RE days to avoid problems.

Note: All prank items will disappear at 11:59 PM Wednesday (the whiskey and whistle will stay).

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A Restock of Olympian Proportions


1:11 pm - Sophia Oceanborn



An event with no precedent is about to happen, and you'll be able to take part. The gods have opened the gates to their dwelling on Mount Olympus and are expecing guests. Who? You, of course.

And because it's rude to decline an invitation from the gods--not to mention their rather unpredictable nature--I urge you to head over the Buy-ins thread and buy yourself in.

Don't be afraid of the gods, though. They truly know how to treat their guests. You'll be able to walk home with the finest goods that are not available to regular mortals, be bestowed with titles, or even get to stay longer on Mount Olympus. Waste no more time and join the party!

9:24 pm - Ninja Kitten


Ravenclaw's victory over Hufflepuff has thrown the Quidditch season wide open! With two matches left to play three teams are still in contention for the coveted Quidditch Cup. As excitement mounts, two teams face each other in the penultimate match of the season. Hufflepuff is looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season and ensure that they are still in contention come the final game. Gryffindor, on the other hand, knows that victory will see them crowned champions!

So make like Mr. Snidget there, and come sit yourself down in the stands around the Quidditch Pitch to watch the action as it unfolds!
