RPC Teaching Center :: April UpdatePosted by Cait on April 9, 2019 - 10:59 am
The Teaching Center is back at it again with a full set of learning opportunities and activities with House Points up for grabs!
Through the past months, we in the teaching center have focused on a number of different roleplaying aspects. Though all of these different aspects are very important, arguably, no aspect of roleplaying is more important than grammar. Grammar helps improve how we are understood, allowing for us to be heard, and to express exactly what you mean to your readers and your partners. Join us in Grammar 101 to get practice on editing and correcting roleplay grammar. Then, try using your skills to make your own posts in this month’s Beginner Roleplay Surprise-Surprise, and tell us about a surprising situation!
Additionally, the Teaching center would like you to congratulate our Student of the Month for April, Kasey ! Do you think you've got what it takes to be the next Student of the Month? Check out the Student of the Month thread to learn more about it! Last but by no means least, we are on the lookout for new mentors! Think you have the skills to teach others how to roleplay? Then check out our Mentor Applications to learn more about becoming an RP Mentor!

Publications Management - April UpdatesPosted by Morgan93 on April 7, 2019 - 11:08 am
April showers bring May flowers - and also some new and exciting things over in The Newsstand. To start, we have the March Daily Prophet focusing on women in all their glory. Our April discussion takes this wonderful theme and runs with it. So come join us in talking about historical and inspiring women!
Now, what would you consider the opposite of May flowers? Did you just say garbage? Because that's exactly what the Quibbler served up in March. No, I'm not talking about their extraordinarily talented writers - just their topic, which took a heavy look into spring cleaning! Our discussion this month focuses on just that - your trash.
Not all of our publications took the bright and happy route with their issues last month. The WWN's broadcast took a dive into the dark, examining the biased era of pureblood-superiority. Our contest this month takes a stab at recreating what it's like to move in secrecy as a targeted member of society with some puzzles for you to solve. Come join us in When Evil Prevailed. Participation in any and all of the events this month could earn you not only some House Points or other shiny prizes, but also tickets to the Newsstand Quarterly Raffle!
RPC April UpdatesPosted by Morgan93 on April 6, 2019 - 8:00 am
This month, the RPC is traveling back to our childhood as we read fairy tales and play with toys. Let's begin with a story, shall we? Once Upon a Time, two fairy tales collided headfirst. But - uh oh! - what happened next? Only you can tell us in April's Roleplay of the Month.
After writing about some fairy tale characters, take some time to explore who is hiding in your imagination. Come over to the Freestyle and tell us all about your Concealed Companion. Unleash your inner child, and let them have fun with their make-believe friend.
Over in the Lounge, we've found a toy! But it unfortunately seems to be lacking some important details. We need some help fixing our Jack-in-the-box, but What's in the Box? is up to you! Finally, we have some whimsical prizes in the April Participation Raffle that could be yours if you join our playtime this month!
