So, grab a copy of our September issue for some surprisingly simple and vault-friendly methods on self-care. It's time to give yourself some well-deserved "me time".

Publications Management - September Update


7:05 am - Morgan93



It's September and, while many people are returning to school, The Newsstand is returning in a different way: We're coming back with another month of activities! Come take a break from school and enjoy a musical interlude in our discussion on music based around the August issue of The Daily Prophet.

We're also shrinking things this month, which we blame on the influence of The Quibbler's August issue about small things. Firstly, find your way to this little discussion covering all thing itty bitty and teeny tiny. Then, join in on A Wee Bit of Fun, working your way through a series of small puzzles and challenges.

As always, participation in any of September's activities will earn you tickets to The Newsstand Quarterly Raffle and a chance at some spectacular prizes.

Fan Fiction Forum


9:04 am - desi




"Men have wasted away before it, entranced by what they have seen, or been driven mad, not knowing if what it shows is real or even possible."

The Mirror of Erised is a magical mirror, which, according to Albus Dumbledore, shows the "deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts." Harry stumbled upon this very mirror during his first year, entranced by the images he saw, and then returned again and again to stare into the mirror until it was moved. What would you see if you got a chance to look? Let us know in September's Theme Prompt.

Are you more of a reader than a writer? Then head on over to Reader's Digest, where the audience gets to shine! Don't forget to participate in the following activities to earn tickets towards the Monthly Raffle:

Character Journals l Continue the Story | FanFic Con | Guess the Character | Picture Prompt | Writing Circle




And, of course, don't forget that participation in Author's Notes could win you an item exclusive to the Fan Fiction department!

RPC Teaching Center :: September Update


5:44 pm - KatieNumbers




School has started back up and what better way than to dive into the Teaching Center to learn even more Roleplaying terminology and who knows what else!

To start us off this month, come on down and delve into the Feedback Roundtable to learn how to give feedback in roleplay posts.

Hot off the press we have two nature themed roleplays for you to participate in. First, do you want a Corn Maze or does The Secret Life of Leaves sound more like what's up your alley? Either way we have plenty to go around and much more to come. So stroll through the leaves and see what you can feel!

Finally, we're always looking for more RP Mentors. Do you have a passion for helping others learn to roleplay? This may be the job for you! Head on over here to learn more on how you can apply!

RPC SEPTEMBER UPDATE


1:20 pm - Kasey



Myth, legend, lore... fantasy. That's what we're exploring this month in the RPC, but naturally, we're changing things up a bit. Why not first check out our Roleplay of the Month and take us on a Flight of Fantasy. Let us know what it would be like for a non-magical character to suddenly find themselves in a magical world with a supernatural companion.

Have more of an interest in myths that we all know? Maybe you should try your hand at roleplaying a popular legend, but with the added twist of needing to make it realistic. That's right! It's time to Get Real!

Or maybe you'd rather design a superhero and then put them through a number of grueling trials, just like the Ancient Greeks. Don't let those abs fool you; those Herculean Tasks are no walk in the park, and now it's your chance to create your own.

And, of course, any eligible entries to our contests will earn you tickets to our September Participation Raffle. With some "much wow" prizes up for grabs, you're not going to want to miss this!



September 5, 2019

HINT Forums :: September Update
