Hufflepuff and the Chocolate Factory

9:27 am - Lu

We've all heard the story of the Golden Ticket, the priceless artifact that wins you a tour of Mr. Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. People around the world are winning Golden Tickets, and then... all of the sudden... only one remains. Enter a young man by the name of Charlie Bucket, who's not well-to-do at all... In fact, he can barely afford a novelty like chocolate.

Still, he spends his quarter and... flash. Something glints in the paper wrapping. Charlie's heart stops. Could it be...? YES! The last Golden Ticket!

What do you mean, you 'don't know this story'? Do you even go here? Well, fine. This is your last chance, though. Check out this thread to find out how you can participate in the retelling of this beloved tale.

RPC Updates

10:00 am - Artemis Eve

It is September, and you are ecstatic to be back at Hogwarts. Over dinner on your first evening back at school, you overhear a fifth-year Ravenclaw whisper about a party that will take place the following night. "Eight o' clock tomorrow night ... the lake ... Cedric will be there ... do not tell Parvati ... the Slytherins are bringing ... by invitation only ... Astronomy Tower ... going to be wild!"

Your heart sinks to the cold stone floor when it dawns upon you that you are not invited. Still, you are determined to get to that party if it is the last thing you do. Taking a sip of pumpkin juice, you begin to hatch a plan, a plan so brilliant that jaws will drop to the ground when you arrive at the party in your most dazzling outfit. But to put your plan in motion, you will need an accomplice.

Join the RPC for our September's Roleplay of The Month: The Very Secret Party. You have until September 30th, 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
