    A 'Lower Levels' forum has been added to Hogwarts for basement and dungeon threading. Due to forum clutter, should the Common Room forums be moved?

    Staff will be deleting dead threads and postlogs beginning January 1st. Want to save your stuff? See here for more info!

    EDIT: We also have two new winter skins to release today! Previews can be found below:


    Golden Beauty (Banner by Soph)


    Secrets of Purity (Banner by Soph)


    The default skin has not changed - as I am still working on tweaking things here and there. It will be released at a later date.

    We're revolutionizing the Networking forum! Plottage will stay the same, but in order to help organize and minimize the craze of networking, we've created a new style of networking! In order to reduce the sometimes overwhelming size of the networking forum, now each player will have one networking thread with any/all of your current needs. See the New Guidelines and Bee's example if you need some help! All of the new forms and guidelines are outlined in the Networking Guidelines post, pinned at the top of the forum.

    You will have until January 31st, 2015 to make the switch over before we clean the networking forum of all old threads!

    We now have our reputation system up and running! Please post here to get your reputation ribbons, and consider setting up a reputation log! The application form has been updated to include the new field.
    unless you're related to him, work under him, or are a mudblood, lucius is actually very friendly. your character might find him intimidating, but would not consider him a giant dick, esp. if they are also a UCPB.

    The reputation updates thread has been updated and reworded so that class = lifestyle. (And that is described in the thread!) Accordingly, the updates thread has also been reopened.

    The Hogwarts Champions have been announced—better late than never xD They are as follows, though in no particular order:

    Petra Septova played by Olive
    Tom O’Hare played by Jenny
    Castor Allaway played by Kayte
    Lorna Van Patten played by MJ
    Harvey Beauregard played by Bee
    Persephone van Helsing played by Miri
    Cillian Notting played by Stefanie
    Oliver Trask played by Ori
    Felix Parkinson played by Atlas
    Tilda MacFusty played by Ladybug

    Your characters will have been made aware of it Christmas Day, and it will be in the paper soon. Please check the Hogwarts Calendar for IC event dates; OOC, they will start one to two weeks before!

    It’s not too late to have a champion of your own.

    There are several international champions still available and we desperately need them filled—enough so that we’re now letting you play two (on top of any Hogwarts champ you might have!), as long as they’re from different schools. Please consider taking them on—remember, temporaries don’t count as real characters anyways ;) You can make your reservations here.

    Lastly, accepted champions are asked to reply here with names and profile links!
    unless you're related to him, work under him, or are a mudblood, lucius is actually very friendly. your character might find him intimidating, but would not consider him a giant dick, esp. if they are also a UCPB.

    As 2014 comes to a close, I’m here to remind you that end of the month means the AC is on the horizon! Due to travel and celebrations, the January AC will be on Sunday, January 4th instead of the usual date. To that end, I have some housekeeping notes:
    • Please make sure that all characters are on the CML, and that the links you provide go to their accepted application.
    • Please make sure their mini-profile is filled out—the only optional field is postlog! You can edit yours here.
    • Double check that all of your characters either have a reputation ribbon or a pending post here!*

    If any of these things are not done, your character(s) will be deactivated. Even if they’ve posted this month. Even if you’re on absence.* The usual policy really, but since this time of year is hectic I did want to press the point xD

    Also, in the interests of having the AC run as quickly and smoothly as possible, no new characters will be accepted after January 2nd. Bonus points if you hold off on registering anyone new until after the AC >.>

    * We appreciate that a) rep ribbons are a big undertaking, b) the holidays are busy, and c) we did have the thread locked for a bit. To that end, players who were on full absence are exempt from point three, but will be expected to get their ribbons up ASAP—we’ll be checking you in February! The exempt players are: Janni, Bex, Doodle, Emily and Jenny, the last of which we hope gets well soon!
    unless you're related to him, work under him, or are a mudblood, lucius is actually very friendly. your character might find him intimidating, but would not consider him a giant dick, esp. if they are also a UCPB.
