Shopping Forums Update


10:10 am - little fox


The Shopping Forum mods are always hard at work trying to keep the forums as user friendly as possible. In one such effort we went through our rules to clarify terms as well as add in a few that will help keep things running smoothly. Head on over here to check out the changes and ask us any questions you have.

Last month the Economy Training system was totally revamped! If you haven’t had the chance to check that out yet, head over to London Underground to learn more and to join in for a chance to win some awesome prizes, including house points and more!

A Walk Down Easter Lane


12:33 pm - Data



Peering into the pensieve, Scorpius had a peculiar look on his face. "What exactly am I looking at, father?" Draco smiled down at him, patting him on the shoulder. "Long lost memories from when your grandfather was in school. With Easter around the corner, I wanted to take a walk down memory lane with you." He then gestured towards the pensieve for them to begin..

Easter is just around the corner! What better way to spend it than to step back in time to when the Marauders and Death Eaters were still at school with a Walk Down Easter Lane?

Third Monthly Item & Six Month Rare


7:25 pm - John


In 2006, we introduced the first monthly donation item. Then in 2009, a second monthly item was added. Today, nearly ten years later, a third monthly item is being added. This new item is called the exclusive premium item and will always be animated. Because of this, and to control rarity, the item is $20 / month. The other two items are now called the exclusive classics. Nothing has changed with any of the packages associated with the classics. This brand new item will be given out at the same time as the classics every month, which will begin starting next month, for all that choose to donate during this month for them. Anyone that has an active Package 3 has the opportunity to purchase the premium item at 50% off each month. Package 3 holders can access this deal in the donations portal under the package features, or on the premium item info page.

After many requests, we are also bringing back the six month rare item. Here are the details:
- Those that donate $10 minimum monthly for six months straight during January-June or July-December will receive a six month rare item, never to be given out again.
- The six month rare is guaranteed to always have an item action associated with it.
- The next six month rare will be given out at the beginning of July this year.
- Because this feature is being brought back in the middle of the time period for it, anyone that donates $10 minimum every month from March to June of this year will qualify to receive the six month rare.
- For more details on the six month rare, see this page!

Lastly, we are excited to announce that we now accept direct payments on HEX. If you don't want to use PayPal, you don't have to anymore. Simply click "Pay with Card" instead and follow the prompts. Most of you have probably noticed that HEX recently switched to being fully SSL compliant to ensure maximum security for everyone. This security also applies to paying directly on the site. PayPal is still an option for payment.

Thank you!

RPC March Updates


3:43 am - Lucas



What if you lived in a world where superstitions came true - where letting a black cat cross your path would ruin your day, or finding a penny would bring you good luck? This month in the RPC, we're answering exactly that. Don't walk under any ladders on your way to our RPoTM, Superstition Ain't The Way.

Or perhaps you'd prefer something that relies a little less on old wives' tales. In that case, you can help rescue Lego people from certain doom in March's RP Freestyle, Everything is Awesome.

If you're looking for something to test your brainpower, check out this month's Lounge contest, Cryptogram Conundrum. Perhaps you'll meet some friendly characters along the way!

Of course, you shouldn't forget to check out March's prizes for our monthly Participation Raffle.

Lastly, want to hone your descriptive skills? Head on over to the Teaching Center to participate in The Taste of the Moon, where you'll have to describe your character's favorite place - without saying what it is.

School's In Session!


1:15 am - Zoe


Have you ever wondered what the other wizarding schools are like? Maybe you've fancied a visit to one of these far away places, hoping to learn a bit of their unfamiliar magic and broaden your skills? Well, you're in luck! After many owls, a lot of Apparation (and fortunately no splinching!), and much cleaning, the Ravenclaw House has organized what is bound to be the school exchange of the year.

Whether your interests lie with Beauxbatons, Castelobruxo, Durmstrang, Ilvermorny, Koldovstoretz, Mahoutokoro, or Uagado, you now get a chance to experience them all! Stop by and pay your travel fee so you can get started!

New Issue of The Quibbler!


6:27 am - Zoe


It appears that some sort of shifty witchcraft is going on in The Quibbler's headquarters, as raisins have started appearing on every surface imaginable. Tables, parchments, shelves, balanced on fruits, stuffed into cabinets, piled into pockets... they're everywhere! While we try to hunt down whoever is putting raisin corpses all over our place of work, you should sit down and read through the March issue of The Quibbler. Do so with caution, though. There's bound to be more raisins lurking about.

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

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: March


9:35 am - Katie




We could all use a little bit of extra luck, couldn't we? Maybe we lost a homework assignment and we need to find it before class begins, or we're trying to drum up the confidence to go talk to that special someone. That little extra boost of luck would be so handy right about now!

Well, break out those charms, recite some superstitions, and make a wish when the clock strikes 11:11, because we're all about luck this month in the Arts & Graphics Forum! The first step in selling any product is to market it well, so head on over to the Graphics Challenge to present to us your best magazine advertisement. If you'd rather tell a tale of luck gone wrong, stop in at our Writing Challenge to detail the downside of a lucky day - with a twist, of course! We hope to see everyone there!

1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
