Caretaker Concoctions - February


2:41 pm - Sammy




What was that that just ran by? Why did it oddly look like a magical creature? While pondering that thought, a couple more have rushed by. The large voice of Hagrid could be heard yelling, clearly frustrated over something. As you turn the corner, the half-giant comes into view. It looks like he needs some help after some of his magical creatures made their own Great Escape!

PRIZES


Hagrid Plushie || Errol Plushie || Blast Ended Skrewt Plushie

Power of Four


12:08 am - HEX Staff



Ah yes, love! A very powerful force. Love can drive us to do all sorts of feats. It can also force us to slow down and smell the flowers or to speed up and view the world around us at hyperspeed. Love comes in many forms, of course. This time of year, we're all accustomed to seeing things that remind us of romantic love, such as intensity and passion. This year, however, we bring you something a little different. Your founders - Godric, Helga, Rowena, and Salazar - have decided that we should celebrate platonic love, especially our love for not just our own Houses, but those of our friends as well. Join us here, as well as in all four Houses, as we spread the love through the Power of Four. While you do so, be sure to keep your eyes peeled; you never know what you might stumble across!

RPC Teaching Center February Updates


12:12 am - KatieNumbers



The Teaching Center is back with a new month full of fun activities and House Points up for grabs! Join us as we focus on descriptions in roleplays!

Descriptions are a very important part of any roleplay. They can help not only set a mood for the roleplay, but also paint a picture of the events happening around each character. Join us in our 101 series on practice describing characters! Being able to describe a setting is another very important aspect of any roleplay. In this month's Beginner's Roleplay, you will have the opportunity to describe settings using any fandom of your choice!

But that's not all! Join us in The Importance of Giving to discuss how important "giving" is to your roleplaying partners. Delve into topics such as being able to provide your partner something to work with, and how you can help ensure you provide your partner enough to build off of.

Next, head on over to this thread to congratulate our Student of the Month for February 2019! Do you think you've got what it takes to be the next Student of the Month? Check out the main Student of the Month thread to learn more about this new initiative! Finally, we are always on the lookout for new mentors! Think you've got what it takes to teach other how to roleplay? Head over to our Mentor Applications to learn how you can become an RP Mentor!

The Magical Archives once again are offering a variety of contests and discussions to explore the Harry Potter books and companion novels.

If you are still looking for an outlet for your creativity, why not design a fairy tale book cover in Coveted Covers? Or, if you prefer to write, make your way over to Memoirs of a Trolley Witch and tell us all about what you think the job of the Trolley Witch in the Hogwarts Express entails. You could also show or tell us what you think Kreacher endured when drinking the Draught of Despair in An Elf's Nightmare.

The RP Factor 2019


12:00 am - Lucas



A labyrinth of stainless steel walls towers above you, reflecting a harsh fluorescent light whose origin you cannot detect. The air is thick against your exposed limbs, humid, heavy, chafing. You run forward along the seemingly endless pathways, raw grains of earth crawling between your toes like specks of sandpaper. Anxiety buzzing in your veins, you quicken your stride, running until your lungs burn and your senses are reduced to the frantic beating of your heart as its mantra fills your ears. The next turn looms closer, and the gasp that snakes its way between your lips almost obscures the guttural undertone now interrupting the sound of your heartbeat. It almost sounds like... cheering. You barrel around the intersection, your fingers grazing the sleek metal of the nearest wall, and feel your legs collapse at the sight before you.

What happens next, you might be wondering? Unfortunately, I don't have that answer, as the possibilities are endless and lie within the minds of HEX's role-players. Whether it be creating worlds so vivid you can feel the foreign waters crashing against your feet, or writing characters so real you feel you have known them all your life, role-playing demands a lot from those who dare to attempt it. While the results can often be marvelous, filled with dark, poignant, and breathtaking tales, they can also fall a bit flat, the world they are meant to portray crumbling beneath the reader's uninterested eyes. Do you think you have what it takes to enthrall readers with your role-plays, to transport them to other worlds the likes of which they've never seen? Perhaps it's time that you turn that last corner and find out.
