Dueling: Slytherin vs Hufflpuff

8:59 pm - Raventhefree

Just as the Quidditch players get out of the poor weather, it seems Gilderoy Lockhart has something in store for the duelists. Nearly everybody's heard of the rhyme April showers bring May flowers - but almost nobody's willing to go as far as Lockhart to make it happen. So grab your umbrellas and your bright-colored boots, because it's time to go watch the duels! Come and watch as Hardworking Hufflepuff and Ambitious Slytherin try to avoid not only being struck by each other's spells, but also getting drenched by the rain! Head on over to the Great Hall to see how Lockhart literally made it rain indoors!

Poseidon has taken over the HINT forums in an effort to best his brother Zeus. For the next two weeks, come join Poseidon and many of the other gods and goddesses in #BreakingOlympus.

Enter, if you dare.

P.S. I heard that there were a total of 6000 House Points up for grabs too, whatever those are.

A Series of RP Events

7:07 am - Char

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Harry never met the Weasleys in his first year? How would he find his way to Hogwarts? Would he even get there in the first place? Well, wonder no more! This month, you'll have the opportunity to explore those possibilities and roleplay what could have happened if Harry had failed to meet the Weasleys. So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Platform 9 & 3/4 to find out more! There are House Points up for grabs here. All entries are due April 30, 2016, 11:59 p.m. HEX time.

Last, but not least, we've just introduced Bi-Weekly Chats in the Grounds. Head over here, and you'll be just in time for the second one!

Mystery Solved?

4:18 am - HEX Staff

Lavender flipped the worn token over in her hand. It looked like it had been used for something, repeatedly, but she couldn't think of what. As she began to mull it over she suddenly had the urge to take a walk outside. She had no set destination in mind, but her feet seemed to know exactly where to go. A short while later, she found herself in a clearing. She looked around and noticed a mysterious booth and instantly knew EXACTLY what the token was for. She stepped forward and inserted the token...

Do you dare to learn what Lavender discovered?

Go now...

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: April

12:14 am - kay85

"And then comes a lion
who's partly a trout!
Then more stuff!
For forty-five minutes, about!"

- Dr. Seuss

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! The circus has rolled into forum 51 and everything is topsy turvy! This month, your task, should you choose to accept, will be to make us laugh in both challenges. Over in the writing challenge, you'll be writing a stand-up routine for a cannon Harry Potter character. We think Professor Binns would probably make the best comedian, right? I mean, he'd be spooktacular at witching hour, am I right or am I right. His audience would just drop dead from laughing so hard. Puns aside, over in the graphics challenge, you are manipulating a Harry Potter into a circus act and putting them in a poster for the circus. Dolores Umbridge looks fantastic in feathers, if you haven't had a good look at our new layout this month.

As always, the winners will go home with galleons and House Points, and their entries will be published on the official HEX Tumblr page.
1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
3rd Place: 2,000 Galleons + 1,000 House Points

Roleplay of the Month - RPC April Update

12:51 pm - picklebuddy7

For every hero, there is a faithful sidekick. And for every great pair of friends, there is a story behind it. Some of the best stories focus on the relationships between people, through struggle and triumph, and how they help each other become the very best, like no one ever was.

That's right, grab your controllers, find your mouse, and dust off that disc - with a partner, you're going to chronicle the yet-unknown adventure of famous video game pairings. Will they have a happy-go-lucky adventure? Or will we see a piece of the story that the game directors didn't have time to share? That's up to you in We Are Gonna Be Friends!

Join RPC for its April Roleplay of the Month: We Are Gonna Be Friends. 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

Quidditch: Ravenclaw vs Gryffindor

3:04 pm - Sophia Oceanborn

The birds are singing (no analogy to any players that may participate in the upcoming match intended!), the sun is up and spring joy is all around. Spirits are up and it's the perfect atmosphere for one last Quidditch match, is it not? After their loss against Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw is now ready to reclaim the skies as they take on Gryffindor. Now, if you're eager to see how this plays out, hurry up to the Quidditch Pitch, secure your seats in the spectator stands, lay back and enjoy the game!

You must NOT tell LIES!

12:00 am - Ninja Kitten

Things at Hogwarts are far worse than I feared. The educational standards are absolutely APPALLING. There are far too many interactions between boys and girls, so many clubs and activities that are not up to the standards of the Ministry of Magic, and don't even get me started on the Staff members. How on earth it's still being run by those in charge, I'll never know.

That's all about to change now. As I was telling John, all naughty children deserve to be punished. I will make Hogwarts Extreme the fine, upstanding site it should be. I WILL have order! Progress for the sake of progress must be discouraged after all. May I remind you that under the terms of Educational Decree #21, as enacted by the Minister...

Dolores Umbridge has taken over HEX! Will anyone be brave enough to take her on? Will she get what she wants, or what she deserves? We'll let you make that choice. Head on over to Diagon Alley and see what exactly is going on.

It's time. Go make your choice today!
