The Newsstand's April Events!


12:28 am - Cody




The Newsstand is up to its peculiar antics again this month, with topics ranging from love to magical creatures to... raisins?

In his takeover of the Daily Prophet, Cupid left a string of strange clues that you'll need to decipher to accurately recount his exploits. Can you rise to the challenge in April's contest, Wonky Words?

If you're fed up with all things love, then never fear! We've collected a few creatures to help take your mind off of that sickly sweet subject. Head on over to our discussion on magical creatures to get involved!

Still not enthused? Well, how dare you! Why don't you mosey on over to our discussion on raisins? We'd love to hear your thoughts on this musical fruit.

As always, be sure not to dawdle! All activities will end at the end of April.

RPC April Updates


5:22 am - Lucas




Hilarious antics are guaranteed to ensue in Role-Playing Central this month! For starters, the universe decided to pull a prank on your favourite characters! They're stuck in a locked room where they don't belong in our Roleplay of the Month, Free the Fandoms, and they need your help to escape!

But if a daunting escape seems too thrilling for you, maybe our RP Freestyle, Knock, knock! Who's there? might be more your speed. After all, what sort of shenanigans could a group of comedians working together get up to?

And for the more puzzling minds out there, why not try your hand at the Lounge Contest, Piecing Together the Page? Fix up a dictionary page and, who knows? Maybe it'll even inspire you to write a bit.

As always, don't forget to check out this month's RPC Participation Raffle to see what gleaming treasures are up for grabs as a reward for your efforts!
