    Potion Brewing Competition!
    #1
    Potion Brewing Competition!

    This year's PBC is sponsored by St. Mungo's in the hopes that it will inspire students and adults alike to make new discoveries in the potions field!

    Adult participants may sign up in one of three categories:
    NOVICES took potions in school (probably), but have not done much of anything with it since. The prize for the winner is 3G and a new set of scales.

    HOBBYISTS likely took potions at the NEWT level and have dabbled in the years since. The prize for the winner is 5G and a new cauldron.

    PROFESSIONALS scored highly enough in their potions NEWT to have it factor into their careers. This is the highest level of the competition. The prize for the winner is 10G, a set of scales, a cauldron, and a really big plaque.
    The description above is just guidelines; the characters themselves may choose which category to enter!

    Those unfamiliar with how PBCs work can check out this thread for an example!  To sign up, simply complete the form below. Each player may submit a maximum of 8 characters—no more than five adults or five students.

    Participants will get to add this beauty to their collection, too!
