The Potters' Demise

5:56 am - Jojo

"James, do you reckon we're safe?"

"Of course we are, hun. Nothing will happen to us," James said confidently as he approached his son. With a gentle touch of his wand, he animated the owl that Harry had been chasing before. The creature rose in the air, alighting in the boy's nose. Giggles erupted in the boy's throat this time, and Lily rose to stand next to her husband. There, they both stood, holding hands, as they watched the little owl soar in the air, out of the window and into the night, the baby's laughter hot on its trail.

Join the Gryffindor Staff in remembering the Potters in their last moments together as a family. What really happened that fateful night? Who was lurking in the shadows? Help us cast light on the situation during the time of year when the barrier between the living and the dead is at its thinnest. The Potter's Demise shall never be forgotten.

Dueling Judge Applications Open

7:45 pm - Artemis Eve

Sometimes, Professor Snape feels like he could strangle Professor Lockhart, who has been spending more and more time in front of the mirror, checking his golden hair and picking imaginary spinach from his perfect teeth. When Professor Lockhart was not busy admiring his reflection, he was signing loads and loads of autographs, leaving Professor Snape alone to worry about the duels. No wonder Professor Snape's own hair is so greasy. He has no time to wash it.

Think you've got the moves like Lockhart? Hoho, you can do a better job than the Dueling Master himself, you say? We want you! Apply to become a dueling judge and give Professor Snape a chance to wash his hair. Interested? Head to the Entrance Hall for details.

Tagging and Menu Changes

10:32 pm - John

Tagging users is a brand new feature that is now available on the site. You can tag as many people as you'd like in forum posts, as well as in trophy case comments. Tagging is very simple, and much like Instagram: simply type the @ sign and start typing a username, and a list of users will pop up for you to choose from. When you tag someone, they will be notified via event and will be directed to the area you tagged them in. There will be additional areas to utilize the tagging feature in soon! Major props to Steven for doing all of this!

Everyone received the notice about the left menu change. As a reminder, the "Site" menu category has been entirely moved to the top bar. Simply hover/click it to get the menu links from before. We are always working to simplify things on here, since we know it can be quite complicated at times. :)

School Bags

6:37 pm - Ninja Kitten

Thanks to the ever-so-lovely Spiora, School Bags are now able to be equipped and used. For those of you who do not own one, be on the lookout in the next few days! They will be available if you look around enough. *cough*

More information or instructions on how to get them to work can be found in Diagon Alley. Please note that only items on the actual class supply lists can be stored in your school bag. So no ladles or non-class related books!

Also just a reminder to all that applications for the school are still open, both for professors and substitutes. Please go HERE to see our application and owl it in to The Headmaster post haste!

Halloween is drawing close for Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. They have just come off of a big case, and are seeking to relax for a few nights before another investigation inevitably ensues.

But it's not too long before Sherlock receives a call from the police station. A new mystery? On Halloween? What fun! In fact, it seems that...

The game is on!

Join the RPC for October's Roleplay of the Month: Halloween with Holmes. You have until October 31st, 11:59 PM Hex time to complete your roleplay.

Fall is here and that can only mean one thing -- it's time to make like a farmer and grow those Halloween pumpkins.

For an entire month, you can plant pumpkin seeds, care for your pumpkins and choose whether to sell them or trade them for items. Graphics this year have completely redesigned from the ground up by Lydia to enrich the experience even more!

The better you care for your pumpkin, the bigger it grows. And the bigger the pumpkin, the bigger the prizes, so make Hagrid proud and grow your pumpkins as big as you can!

We'll have brand new items available to trade for pumpkins and some surprises in store. Be sure to read the FAQ and Guide to see just how everything works! Head over to the Pumpkin Patch today to start growing!
