Did You Know?
“Got the morbs” was Victorian slang for a temporary melancholia — Dante
In a panic sort of reaction, she shut the door but neglected to make sure she was on the other side of it.

August 2020


Activity Check
The list of inactive accounts has been compiled, with deactivations and list maintenance underway :) If you lost a character you'd like back, you may post in Maintenance starting Wednesday, August 5th. If you have no currently active characters you can post in maintenance immediately! If you lost a character before the AC, you can post there whenever you'd like!

Student Updates 2020
It's that time of year again—Student Updates need to be processed to make sure we're all set for the coming school year. If you play a current or incoming student or professor, please swing by ASAP to sort your character(s)!

The Quidditch World Cup is here! The final match has already begun OOC, and the Moroccans have touched down on our shores. Fancy taking on a foreign player? Participating in a scrimmage?

Student Clubs have been updated and the spreadsheet wiped clean for the 1890-1891 school year.

Please read both the original directions carefully and my additional post on how to add your student, claim a presidency and get your user titles updated accordingly! Ta darlings!

MJ made this divine beauty

The QWC final match has halted abruptly after a spectator was slain by a bludger. IC, this match will resume on Friday, August 28th—all existing tickets are valid for the new date, though there will be no refunds for those who decide it is unwise to attend. OOC, it will begin again this weekend—players have been contacted via Skype and I'm just waiting to finalize the Moroccan roster!

Need to catch up on the SWP?


It is I, your friendly neighbourhood Satan, here wearing my Head Hag cap—the Gossipmongering Hags are hiring, and they (probably) want YOU! What does this job entail?

Announcements party is BACK.

Activity Check
Our September Activity Check will take place on Sunday, September 6th—that's one week from today! What do you need to ensure to get through without a headache?
  • Your mini-profile is filled in with height properly formatted
  • All of your characters have been listed in the Character Directory—check back on your entries to make sure they were processed properly! Anyone reactivated this month will need to be placed back on.  (including Hawaiian temporary characters)
  • Characters made before the last AC have posted at least once this month
  • Your Student Updates have been seen to
  • This one's mostly for staff, but that your full profile has been filled in ;)
If all of the above are squared away, there should be no reason for you to fall inactive in the upcoming check!  To our new members: the AC requires no work on your part. The staff team simply makes sure the above is seen to!

Signups are now open for September PW! May the odds be ever in your favour during this dumpster month xD

SWP 10
Morocco may have won the Quidditch World Cup, but that doesn't mean that the SWP is over! The timeline is up-to-date as of today with all the happenings!

Camp Charming
This year's Camp Charming wraps up in one week! Don't forget that you must link to a completed thread in order to make it across that finish line! Feel free to reach out to Kayte by Skype only if you want to know what your CC post count is—please be prepared to provide her with your character post totals if you have 20+ accounts.

Thread Roulette
Because I continue to be all about shaking things up to small extents, the thread roulette for September sees participants given a blind (posting) date over three days! Those who complete their dates will get PRIZES (yay!), while those who fail will get sent to bed without cake but still get to shake up their posting life!

September Events
After a very eventful summer, I anticipate September might be a bit more chill—but just in case you have events lined up for this coming month, please let us know!

Student Quidditch
With the events of the Quidditch World Cup, there are fewer positions to try out for this year, but every house has at least one opening for students who want to fulfill their quidditch dreams! Tryouts will begin OOC on September 3rd, with tryout signups being accepted until the 10th!

Temporary Characters
We have a number of temporary characters kicking around as a result of the QWC. With the summer winding down, I've had a few questions as to what you'll be doing with them moving forward.

The Sanditon Terrace house has been let until September 4th. Anyone who wants to stay beyond that IC must find their own accommodations. Please note that the regular quidditch season begins for Morocco on September 26th and so all players must vacate Britain by then or remain long-term (see below).

You may continue to post in threads set during the visitation window in your application through the end of September with no changes. Characters who plan on relocating to Britain must post in Maintenance with:
  • Their new usergroup
  • Their new usertitle
  • A brief (1-3 sentances) explanation as to why and/or how they are staying.
As soon as this is done, you may begin participating in threads outside your visitation window. The best part? You don't need to fully app them! Just please keep their profile fleshed out moving forward, and remember to update their CD entry :)
