Sweet Sixteen

6:50 am - HEX Staff

Sixteenth birthdays don't happen every day, so we can't let one pass by without a little celebration! So today, join us as we wish HEX a very happy sixteenth birthday! We've survived the tantrums of the toddler years, made it through our childhood, and have reached the years of full teenage rebellion. We're looking forward to many more years of fun here on HEX. Though, let's avoid all that growing up business well into HEX's old age. Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.

Be sure to wish your fellow HEXians a happy sixteenth as you chat and explore the site today. And while you're doing all that chatting and celebrating, keep your eyes open. You just might catch a couple of new "treats."

Do YOU like to chat with characters?

1:11 pm - Madam Rosmerta

SCA, or Site Character Accounts, are the canon characters that you see out and about during HEX events. They bring great joy and excitement to our users on a daily basis.

We need more help at this time, due to an increase in requests for characters. Please note that we remain completely anonymous when using a character - we want everyone to be able to let loose, and not be afraid of being flamed or trolled for their portrayals. We do ask that each of you continues to respect their privacy in regards to that.

Is anyone out there brave enough to come and play with us? Hop on over to the Entrance Hall to take a look at the application, and have a drink with me! All applications will be judged anonymously in order to be as fair as possible. Applications after 11:59 pm HEX time on September 9th will not be accepted.

You won't want to put it off, as I hear there are some wonderful new surprises in store for those who pass!

Recently, the Magical Education discussion forum underwent a bit of a revamp. There are all new discussion forums for each year, as well as some fun-filled contests!

But wait, there's still more! Want to be a professor? Amazing, we want you to be one, too. If the idea of teaching a class makes you wiggle around like an excited puppy, then you're in luck!

RPC August Updates

11:10 pm - Cody

”Be brave enough to travel the unknown path, and learn what you are capable of.”

The time has come again to head on down to the Roleplay Center, but be sure to bring a mirror with you this time! If you like an adventure, you can embark on a journey to a world lived entirely backwards from your own in A Life Lived Backwards. However, if that doesn't appeal to you, you can always head on over to reflect on the past in Reflections.

Regardless of what you choose, be sure to head on over to our Raffle Thread to check out some gleaming prizes!
