Black Friday 2016


12:02 am - HEX Staff



Black Friday is hands down one of the craziest days in the United States. People line up hours before midnight, sometimes in extremely harsh weather, in hopes of getting a deal on an item they have had their eye on. Here on HEX we don't exactly offer crazy deals on items... but we do drag some rare, hard to get items out of the depths to give users a chance to acquire them and put them on display in their Trophy Cases!

Each day of the sale: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday Naut Fur You will be stocked with a handful of different items. Each customer is limited to one (1) of each item during the length of the sale.

Fantastic Beasts


10:07 pm - John


As Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is released across the world, we recognize that many do not want to be immediately spoiled about the movie. So, like we've done for always done for the books and movies, the Spoiler ban will be in effect. This means:
- No spoilers whatsoever outside of the Fantastic Beasts forum. Those that do will have their post edited and warned.
- Spoilers within the Fantastic Beasts forum must be within the [spoiler] [/spoiler] tags.

We appreciate everyone following this so that no one has the movie spoiled for them before they see it.

Have fun and enjoy seeing the movie!

This month's issue of the Daily Prophet details the true history of the tale of Guy Fawkes and the ongoing tug-of-war taking place between the Department of Mysteries and the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, and an update on the local Quidditch teams. For those interested in culture, a focus piece on the newest smash hit in the Wizarding theater community -- along with its breakout star -- awaits you. Go on and take a look!

Want to read more of the Daily Prophet? Then head on over to the Official Archives! Special access, just for our loyal readers!

From the Grounds


2:32 am - Kljy


As a young man, Newt Scamander journeyed across five continents, to a hundred countries, in order to catalogue various beasts for his book. He traveled far and wide to study different beasts, and he had many adventures along the way. Whether it was from the people he met or the beasts he had studied, all the things and events he encountered were definitely something he would never forget! Now that Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them has gone on to become a widely acclaimed book, join the Groundskeepers as we delve into Newt's experiences as a Magizoologist, and discover the legacy he left behind in Five Continents: A Legacy. Remember, the contests will be held until November 30, 11:59PM HEX time!

Please keep the Grounds' Watch Thread on watch for updates.

RPC November Update: Roleplay of the Month


6:42 pm - Mar


The year was 1979. A frigid breeze seeped through the thin fabric of the figure's black cloak as he slinked along the narrow street. The silhouette of the man walking ahead of him was painfully familiar - an image from his childhood juxtaposed onto the surrounding townhouses: long, unruly hair the color of squid's ink, an arrogant gait worn as naturally as a second skin. We meet again, little brother.

You are to roleplay Sirius and Regulus Black's attempts to recover and destroy the Horcrux that Voldemort has hidden in the canonical Horcrux cave. How will the brothers go about trying to recover the Horcrux? What object will the Horcrux resemble in this alternate universe? What horrendous creatures/obstacles will they encounter when they arrive at the cave? Most importantly, will they succeed in destroying the Horcrux, or die trying?

Join the RPC for our November's Roleplay of The Month: A Trip Without Return. You have until November 30th, 11:59 PM HEX time to complete your roleplay.


Prizes
Best Plot: 10,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP (each)
Best Character: 10,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP
Best Overall Post: 10,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP
