Dueling: Gryffindor vs Slytherin

11:35 pm - Char

It's the month of May, and it's time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! Wait, it's already done? Oh, then it's time to celebrate Mother's Day! What, that's not it either? Okay, okay, for real this time... we'll be celebrating National Teacher Week! Is that right now? Oh yay, it is! It's time to think about our teachers and professors and how much we appreciate them. It's time to remember all the good things they've done for us, and all those times they've helped us. Of course, Gilderoy Lockhart is no exception. He wants to be appreciated too, so he made sure this month's duels had an elaborate feast and celebration to celebrate the occasion. Join us as we see the Brave Gryffindors and the Cunning Slytherins battle it out -- while celebrating National Teacher Week, of course -- in the last set of duels this season! It's a sight you'll definitely enjoy! Come visit the Great Hall to check it out now!

Introducing The Marketing Department

As some of you may have already noticed there is a new department on HEX, namely the Marketing Department. (As if you couldn't tell from the title of this announcement right?) One of the main projects for this department is creating and running multiple email campaigns to keep users on HEX informed of all the things going on as well as providing some other fun tidbits of information. (You may have already noticed that the first ever HEX Newsletter, titled the Dirigible Plum, arrived in your inboxes on Saturday!)

In order to successfully deliver this information, we're asking everyone to take a moment to check out the mailing list preferences page to tell us what emails you'd like to receive and make sure your email is accurate.

We're looking forward to sharing even more with you in the future! If you have any questions or suggestions about the Marketing Department you can contact any of the team members: John, Ninja Kitten, Grant, or Sara.

RPC May Update: Roleplay of the Month

8:21 pm - Artemis Eve

It was a difficult choice to make, but if she didn't act quickly, both the people she loved would perish.

There was a labored intake of breath. To the Savior's left, her mother struggled to lift her head, and with her dying breath, the elderly woman rasped. "Save Venka. I ... wish ... the two of you ... a very happy ... future ... together."

Several feet away from the Savior, Venka protested, weakly. "No. Save your mother. She deserves ... to live ... So much more ... than I do."

Join the RPC for our May's Roleplay of The Month: Choices. You have until May 31st, 11:59 PM HEX time to complete your roleplay.

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

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: May

11:52 am - Em

"We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, Harry, but battle on."
- Albus Dumbledore

May marks another anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, however, this year has proven to be just a little more painful than years past. Professor Severus Snape was lost during that fateful battle in 1998, but this year, we lost the man who brought our beloved potions master to life, Alan Rickman. We wanted to make this month entirely about remembering this character who meant so much to all of us. So, for the graphics, you will be making the cover for Severus Snape's biography. For the writing, you are going to try to recreate part of the former Headmaster's life. We continued our theme with the Artwork of the Month, which is a simple, but lovely piece depicting the departed Professor. In happier news, we have a brand new tutorial program that we have put together to help budding graphic designers sharpen their skills. Be sure to check that out (after a good cry, maybe?).

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
