Faction Fallout

2:06 pm - Pain

What makes you different makes you dangerous.

In a world where everyone tries to fit in, being the different one could only bring you trouble. A world where Faction comes before Family, where teenagers go through grueling Initiation Tests and Divergents are feared. Everything depends on that one choice you make. Will you choose Bravery, Selflessness, Intelligence, Peace or Honesty?

Join the Slytherin Staff in the Faction Fallout and remember, Faction Before Blood!

O.W.L.s, N.E.W.T.s, and TA Applications - Oh My!

2:33 am - Zoe

Whether you love them or you hate them, one thing is for certain - O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s are a requirement for those of us at Hogwarts. Unfortunately, something crazy happened with the exams over the past few years, and any attempt to use them was resulting in exploded desks, quills that flew away, and the loss of eyebrows. After much hard work (and a few tears), I am pleased to tell you that these exams have RETURNED!

That's right, O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s are open once again! Click here to find out more!

Additionally, applications for teaching assistants are now OPEN! If grading homework makes you happy, if you're looking for a way to spend some of your spare time, or if you just like helping, this is the job for you! If would like to be a TA for the coming year, go check out this thread!

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: August

3:28 am - Em

Summer is not over yet, and that means you can still go on a cool summer camping trip, while around the fire you can share scary stories, while eating s'mores. But here's the catch, you are being chased by a monster and you have to create a plan in order to defeat it. They stole your camp food and now it's up to you to catch it. However, if you are writing savvy, then you can tell us how you felt listening to scary stories? What did you feel? Head over to A/G and let us know.

After your camp fire ordeal, don't forget to check out the Artwork of the Month, a gorgeous example traditional art using only graphic pencil.It's quite EYE-catching

Em's Tut-a-Week program is still there waiting for eager learners to come and learn all there is about graphic design

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

The RP Factor 2016

8:00 am - Artemis Eve

There was a quiver of anticipation in the air, the very promise that something spectacular was about to take place. Our heroine stepped towards the door in that vast, empty room, her white ankle-length nightgown rustling quietly as she moved like a ghost in the dead silence of the night. Her bare feet made no sound, but when she flicked her wrist to turn the brass doorknob, a whooshing noise escaped through the narrow crack, accompanied by a swirl of snow. Placing both hands together, she heaved the heavy door open and gasped in great astonishment at the sight laid out before her very eyes.

Scores upon scores of possibilities open up to you as a role-player, and plots, both dark and dazzling are explored time and time again. You have told the story of numerous characters, all of them charming and magnetic, intense and complicated, and you have built worlds so diverse and glorious, you feel like you belong. But have you put your role-playing skills to the test? Well, it's about time that you do.
