"The brave Badgers did not kill dragons. The brave Badgers rode them."
Dragons have overtaken Hufflepuff! Our 2018 New Years Resolution was to try to tame a dragon. Little did we know this dragon would call in reinforcements. Join us as things get heated up in Tipping the Scales!
The AtriumPosted by Chrissy on January 18, 2018 - 6:02 am
A peacock-blue ceiling is inlaid with gleaming golden symbols that appear to be continually moving and changing like some enormous heavenly notice board, seems to stretch endlessly above you. The walls on either side of you are panelled in shiny dark wood with many gilded fireplaces set into them.

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: JanuaryPosted by Sara on January 5, 2018 - 7:45 am
New years are often times used to reflect and begin new habits or beat old ones to become a better version of yourself. This month the Arts & Graphics team has gone a few steps further with this theme. We're all about perfection in the form of utopias, and the opposite, but popular plot setting, dystopias!
Join us in the graphics challenge to show us the dichotomy of these two concepts in the form of a wallpaper. Is writing more your thing? Then join the writing challenge where you, a dystopian dweller, are tasked to write a letter to a friend in a utopian society to convince them to join you. Are you up for the challenge? Winners will receive the following:
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
Finally, each month we feature fabulous works found throughout the A&G forum, but this month we're asking you to vote for your favorite from 2017. So drop by and place your vote for the Artwork of the Year!

RPC Goes Wild!Posted by Artemis Eve on January 3, 2018 - 7:00 pm
It's absolute bananas in the RPC. Fictional characters have escaped from their fandoms and are tearing through our forums. They are even trying to crawl into each other's worlds -- how rude and bothersome! The team is diligently chasing after the errant characters and trying to send them back to where they belong, but it's an uphill task. To make matters worse, original characters have begun to sprout like mushrooms and build kingdoms of their own. Help us keep things in check by participating in RPC Goes Wild!
