Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

Event Ideas

Do You Have an Idea?

We are always looking for the next big idea (or even moderately-sized idea) for events—something that can attract a large number of characters be it a hosted event or something else. Please post here if you have suggestions for...

  • A one-off event (carnival, dance, flower show, etc.) that appeals to the middle and/or working classes, or to non-humans.
  • A mini boardwide event such as the snowstorm and spiked tea we've had in the past.
  • A major boardwide plot that affects characters from all classes and at least three usergroups.
The staff will pop in here every time we feel more inspiration is needed—and there might be board contribution stamps on the table for those whose ideas are used!



PMs on this account will not be checked.
Instead, please contact Ursula Black, Aldous Crouch, Cassius Lestrange, Elias Grimstone, Elladora Black, or Elsie Beauregard with any questions, issues, or concerns.

Okay so dream land got me this time.
    A large crisis in the Portkey Office occurs when several portkeys set up for a large event in the magical community (think quidditch world cup sized) causes its travelers to be transported to the middle of the Scottish wilderness with their wands fried. THUS, the travelers get lost in the Scottish wilderness without magic for days and have to do a Hunger Games style survival thing, only without the killing each other part. They meet wild obstacles like an acromantula colony, magical weather conditions, etc. Would be super cool if people could sign up with the knowledge that one of their chosen characters must perish for #realism.


I burned the bridges without regret.

One off event:
May Day festivities for the working class of Hogsmeade/Irvingly (whichever suits) feat. Maypole dancing, beer and food because yay Bank Holiday. Could also include some mild love potion being spiked into the drinks/food because love is in the air in Spring? But on some people it backfires and spouses/courting couples end up hating each other.

An inter-house competition sorta thing! Think triwizard tourney/pan-magical games except it would be two houses v. the other two houses! Students from each age group (intro/OWL/NEWT) would be chosen to compete in a number of competitions (something more creative than just dueling or potion-brewing, though :P) and earn points separate from the house points—though the houses with the highest scores in each age bracket should earn points at the end of the year!

I am 100% down for the chosen students being merit-based or evidence-based rather than randomized because it would promote participation in the first few months of school ;)
