Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Barnabas Skeeter in CYOA: Group D

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.



bee made me this set and i love it

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 ;)

HI HERE I AM WITH A CHRISTMAS EVENT IDEA YES I KNOW IT'S SEPTEMBER

The Muggle Studies professor (or someone) convinces the Headmaster to let them put on a Hogwarts production of A Christmas Carol. Roles are cast and rehearsals begin. During one rehearsal, Peeves decides to help everyone get a little more in the spirit of things... by sending the entire cast back to a 'Christmas Past' at Hogwarts.

From the perspective of those not involved in the play (professors, other students, eventually the concerned parents/relevant Ministry departments), it looks like 30-some students just up and vanished. For those who go back, they cycle through a bunch of random years at Hogwarts and get to meet (and have amazingly awkward threads with) their parents/older siblings/etc while they're still teenagers.

Since actual time travel is a bit outside Peeves' wheelhouse this would all be illusion (ie, the 'past' people wouldn't have any memories of the interactions when the kids come back to the present day), but that doesn't make it any less weird for the kids involved. xD


is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?
