Now Hiring: Magical Archives!


5:54 am - Jojo



NOW HIRING: MAGICAL ARCHIVISTS

The Magical Archives is an area in which we delve into each of the books written by the lovely J.K. Rowling. Our area is composed of 12 forums dedicated to the Harry Potter books, our new Archives hub, the Vault, forums for The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Cursed Child, and Fantastic Beasts, and lastly, our more serious forum in which we remember all the characters and actors who have passed, In Loving Memory. There is so much yet to explore! We are expecting some big changes in the Archives soon, so we hope we can find (in the very least) a couple of new Archivists to join the journey with us!

Life After Hogwarts


8:40 pm - ilostmyleftshoe



“Hey, Mr English guy! I think your egg is hatching."
- Jacob Kowalski

Newt Scamander would like to formally invite you to experience what it's like to be a Magizoologist. You'll be able to further explore what it's like to care for fantastical beasts! Although he's known for losing his beasts, he does eventually find them. Can you help Newt find his latest group of lost creatures and friends in Fantastic Words and How To Find Them? Want to chat about Newt's beasts in An Archives' Anthology of Beasts. If you're not up for playing hide and seek, show us your artistic side and decorate your own dragon egg in Debonair Dragon Designs.

Remember, participating in any of our Life After Hogwarts events will earn you tickets toward our monthly raffle!

Project L.O.V.E.


7:56 am - Jojo




"Welcome to Project L.O.V.E. Remember, please, this is a place of privileged access. What you see in here should remain in here, as I'm sure you've heard enough times in your lessons. This place is yours to explore for the day. Though some of you may see this room again if that is where your role as an Unspeakable ends up taking you. Don't lose the key, though! I can't stress this enough. It's the only way to access this room. Well, I guess that's it. Enjoy!"

Join us on our journey investigating the Love Chamber in the Department of Mysteries, which is said to hold the secrets to the hardest and strongest kinds of magic - LOVE.

From the Grounds


9:38 am - Char



Being stuck on Platform 9 3/4 with no Hogwarts Express and no gateway between the two platforms, and hence no way out, can be a daunting time. However, luckily for you, you have a time-turner and are able to change your fate. How will you change your fate, so that you will make it onto the Hogwarts Express in time? Come and join us in the Platform 9 3/4 forum in the Tales of the Time Traveler and tell us your story. All entries are due 28 February 2018, 11:59pm HEX time.

Please keep the Grounds' Watch Thread on watch for updates regarding activities and events like the current Bi-Weekly Chat, as well as Roleplay and Roleplayer of the Month.

Do you like to chat with characters?


10:21 am - Madam Rosmerta


SCA, or Site Character Accounts, are the canon characters that you see out and about during HEX events. They bring great joy and excitement to our users on a daily basis.

We need more help at this time in order to give our awesome users the BEST possible experience they can have. Please note that we remain completely anonymous when using a character - we want everyone to be able to let loose, and not be afraid of being flamed or trolled for their portrayals. We do ask that each of you continues to respect their privacy in regards to that.

Is anyone out there brave enough to come and play with us? Hop on over to the Entrance Hall to take a look at the application, and have a drink with me! All applications will be judged anonymously in order to be as fair as possible. Applications after 11:59 pm HEX time on March 9th will not be accepted.

RPC February Updates


9:49 am - Pyper



Lets get ready to rumble! It's game on in the RPC this month as things have finally come to a head. In the blue corner, we have been overrun by an alarming number of crazy characters, occupying themselves with rambling about their own needs and requirements. Memory loss, poisoning, and abduction are the words on everyone's lips and no one is quite sure who to trust. Can you help us sort fiction from fact in our RPotM, Random Roleplay Ramblings?

In the red corner, battles are occurring daily, as Maggie Brant attempts to teach the young fledglings how to battle with the old dogs. To see some sparks fly, some tempers get frayed, and some passionate dueling occur, stop by this month's RP Freestyle, Battle Royale, as it's gearing up to be one unforgettable event!

For those of you who prefer to battle with your words, we offer you Exquisite Expressions. Get your tongue wrapped around some of the most beautiful words in the English language and discover that not all words are considered common, ugly, and vile.

And, of course, our Participation Raffle will be ongoing, so be sure to check out some of the lovely prizes we have in store for you this month!

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: February


11:01 am - Katie




Pink and red, chocolates and roses, date night dinners and more selfies than you even know what to do with - we're surrounded by love and relationships during the month of February! But you know what they say... there's a fine line between love and hate...

That's why, this month in the Arts & Graphics Forum, we're exploring both sides of that line! In our Graphics Challenge, you'll be tasked with creating the cover of a novel. The subjects? Your favorite fictional couple! If that doesn't tickle your tastebuds, our Writing Challenge may appeal to you, in which we're eagerly awaiting your stories about a romantic couple who may be heading far away from 'happily ever after.' If you've ever wanted to feature your favorite ship, canon or not, in a challenge, this month is your chance and we can't wait to see what you create!

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

Welcome to the Weasley Hideout!


12:51 am - Zoe




Whoa! What's that? A secret passageway behind the curtain? Awesome! Let's go check it out!

As we all know, HEX is made up of not just users from all over the world, but of all ages as well. After much discussion, it was decided that our younger users needed a space to call their own where they can chat with and get to know those on the site who are of a similar age. Thus, the Weasley Hideout was born!

The Weasley Hideout is a NEW forum created specifically for users on HEX who are under the age of thirteen. From contests to discussions to incentives and more, this forum is intended to be a welcoming place for all of the younger users on HEX. With that said, for the first month of being open, this forum is open to everyone! What are you waiting for? Stop by today and see what's hiding out in the Hideout! Who knows, you may even spot the Weasley Ghoul!

New Issue of The Quibbler!


3:16 am - Zoe


Gnomes, gnomes, they're everywhere! What is this?! What happened to throwing them over the wall and getting rid of them once and for all? Oh dear. It seems that the gnomes that were eradicated from Hogwarts somehow found their way into The Quibbler's headquarters. Between you and me, I'm convinced that one of The Quibbler's staff gave them a rather large helping hand, but what do I know? Either way, you should grab your Gnome-Away and pick up a copy of the February issue, as it's sure to be an adventure!

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or send an owl to Zoe or Art.
