    Sample Roleplay Post: James  stopped in at Quality Quidditch after several minutes standing at the window, staring at the newest Firebolt model. It was extremely expensive, but Jalek had been working hard in school, and at Club Quidditch. He knew his son hoped to become seeker for a professional team, and would need a professional broom. He approached the proprietor and placed an order for the broom, paying for it upfront. He had it wrapped and carried it out under one arm. Once he arrived home through the Floo Network he wrote his son a letter and placed it in the bundle, sending Screecher with it to Hogwarts.
