Wish Lists & Wands

6:09 am - John

Many of you have been asking for forever, and it is finally here. You can now re-order all items on your wish list. In addition to this, wish lists have received a general design refresh. Start re-ordering your items now! Wish lists are also now located at www.hexrpg.com/wishlist/index.php?view=username instead of www.hexrpg.com/clist.php?view=username, so any links you may have to yours will need to be updated.

The popular Savior and Destroyer wands from the recent Ravenclaw sitewide event are now sitewide random events that anyone can receive. As many of you may recall, both of these items have actions. One can attack someone with the Destroyer wand, and then the person has within one hour to defend themselves with the Savior wand. If they fail to, they are temporarily stopped from posting, along with some health point deductions. Be on the lookout for them!

Princesses, knights, dragons, and adventure! What else could anyone want? It's the stuff of legends, specifically, the legend of St. George and the Dragon. Come recognize the Patron Saint of England as students attempt to recreate this epic story on the dueling platforms. Will the dragon be victorious this time, or will St. George once again rescue the damsel in distress? Or will the fair lady rescue herself from the dastardly clutches of her unwelcome captor in a modern role reversal? Perhaps negotiations will go through and they'll settle it all peacefully. Only time will tell!

The fifth set of duels is between Bold Gryffindor and Creative Ravenclaw. Head over to the Great Hall to see which House will bring home the victory!

Dividend Updates

8:55 pm - John

As many of you know, we have made a consistent effort in the past couple years to provide everyone with more ways to make galleons. We will continue to focus on adding more and more ways. Since a lot of the ways have been around for a while now, it is time to start balancing things out to keep the economy in the best possible state that it can be. With this, there are some big changes that are happening to dividends come May 1st. They are:

- Dividends will now be taxed if you make 50k G or more per month. How much you are taxed depends on how much you make in dividend payments. To see percentages based on payment amounts, please see here. In addition to this, your total amount you will pay in taxes each month is listed at the bottom of your portfolio.

- Dividends will only be paid to your account if you have logged in within the last 30 days of the 1st of the month they are being issued. So if you were to not login for a few months, you would not receive dividends in those months. If you were to login again, you would begin receiving dividends again as normal (but you would not receive any back payments).

Thank you for your understanding with all of this. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in this thread!

Professor Sprout Saves Spring

6:11 am - Artemis Eve

At long last, the harsh winter that has terrorized the Hogwarts has come to an end. Still, the bitter cold is left lingering in the Greenhouses, reluctant to relinquish its hold on the various plants that have unfortunately become its prey. It is up to Professor Sprout, the Herbology teacher, to pick up where the frost left off. Steady and steadfast, she sets off to revive her precious plants. But the immense workload is proving to be too hard, even for the unyielding lady. She needs more hands on the decks - er, pots. This is where you come in!

The Welcome Center moderators have arranged for Hexians from all around the world to help Professor Sprout save spring. Are you ready to put on your gardening gloves and pick up your trowels? Good. There is plenty of work to be done, but wait! That is not all. Plenty of prizes are in store to reward you for your hard work and effort!

Join Professor Sprout here.

RPC Update - April

11:27 am - picklebuddy7

It was supposed to be a routine procedure. Exit the Hab, get into the Rover, travel to the MAV and ascend to the ship before, ultimately, returning to Earth safely. No one counted on the freak sandstorm, or the stray beam which careered into both you, an engineer, and your best friend, a botanist/engineer. The accident destroyed both bio-monitors, leaving the rest of your crew to believe neither of you made it. Making some calculations, you find you can survive for four years (providing you can find/make food) on the Red Planet, but no more. Now, stuck on Mars, it's a race for survival-- can you make it? Or will Mars lead to your downfall?

Join RPC for its April Roleplay of the Month: An Impossible Mission. You have until April 30th at 11:59 pm HEX time to complete your roleplay.

Best Plot: 5,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP (each)
Best Character: 5,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP
Best Overall Post: 5,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP

Also - don't forget that roleplay nominations will earn you tickets into our annual raffle (prizes TBA soon)! Nominate a roleplay here.

Easter 2015

5:45 am - HEX Staff

Hoppy Easter, HEXians! The Easter Bunny has some extra special Easter fun planned for you.

You've likely already noticed the Limited Edition Bertie Botts Every Flavor Bean boxes -- which dispense special, Easter edition beans. Well, soon you'll also be able to display all of your beautiful beans in a special display box. Get your bean holder now so you can be ready to show off your collection in the next couple days.

Not only are there beans to collect, we've also brought back last year's popular egg decoration. So, make sure you collect those ingredients, and find yourself a recipe to decorate a beautiful egg (this year with a completely new look!). We have also added an exciting new feature, egg dyeing! Collect all the ingredients to dye your eggs and then visit the magical cauldron to dye your eggs.

We have also heard that leprechauns had so much fun around here during St Patty's that they have been able to convince the Easter Bunny himself to join in some similar fun. Are you able to catch Peter Cottontail in exchange for a reward? What are you waiting for? Go to the thread in the Easter Forum for a quick how to guide on how to join in all the fun!

Fight or Flight?

12:00 am - Ninja Kitten

It's that time of year again, the Twins' Birthday, April 1st. The Twins have taken over hex and have completely overhauled the pranks on the site! Be here to see them all in action. Keep your eyes peeled, I heard a rumor there may or may not be one or two people trying to break HEX...

The ever-so-mischievous duo, Gred and Forge, are up to something! Is this a war, or something more friendly? Did they have an argument? Are there ill-intentions behind it all? Whatever the cause, they appear to be pranking each other left and right, with several poor users being caught in the middle.

Will you choose to join the fight, or will you hide in the shadows? Is there truly anywhere safe at all? Other characters have been sighted, choosing to help their favorite twin. Lines are being drawn, and subsequently crossed. Who will wind up being the winner? Can one actually win against one of the infamous Weasley twins? They appear to have an endless supply of products, will they ever run out?

Let's just hope it's not a full-out rebellion, as things could get out of control rather quickly indeed.

It's your decision. Choose wisely.
