You're in for a Scare!Posted by Doc Necro on October 13, 2020 - 12:03 am
On one of his routine shopping trips to Muggle garage sales, Mr. Weasley found quite a bargain (in his opinion) when he was able to snag a damaged walkie-talkie, some old light-up children's sneakers, and a box of books for merely ten pounds! When he got home he tossed the box aside and began tinkering with the walkie-talkie.
The box caught Ron's eye as he walked in the room to tell his father goodnight. Arthur let his son take the books as the covers were too scary looking for him. Ron settled in bed and picked up a book with a bunch of kid's bearing pumpkin heads on the cover. Join Ron in the Shopping Forums as he dives into the Goosebumps series. But Reader, Beware, You're in for a Scare!

THE RPC IS HIRINGPosted by Kasey on September 14, 2020 - 11:42 am
Yawning widely, you enter your common room after a long day of classes, ready to plop down in a comfy chair and chat with friends while you pretend you don't have homework piling up. You're about to claim the best spot in the room when you notice all the students gathered around the bulletin board. Squeezing in through the crowd, you get close enough to see the massive sign that reads: "ROLEPLAYING CENTRAL MODERATORS NEEDED".
Yes, you heard correctly! The Roleplaying Central is on the lookout for a few new moderators to join our team. The RPC forums are entirely dedicated to roleplaying, and are some of the most active forums on HEX, so we're in need of some new, active, and reliable moderators to help us keep the area running smoothly.
Is this sparking your fancy? Then head on over to this thread to learn more about what it means to be an RPC moderator and details on how to apply.
Applications will be open until 11:59 PM HEX time on September 27, 2020. We look forward to reviewing your application!
