Did You Know?
During the Victorian era, knitting became a staple of a well-bred woman. Queen Victoria is even reported to have been a fan of knitting herself. It was during this time that knitting wasn’t just restricted to plain yarn fabrics, but changed to involve bead and lace knitting. — Fallin

A new forum has joined the fray! The Magical Portrait Gallery of England will be a unique addition to Charming in that nothing is ever completely private. Indeed, it boasts the following disclaimer for users to be aware of:

There are sentient eyes in every room of this forum. Active Portrait characters may interject even in private threads, and actions could lead to rumours -- though these would likely be distorted by the time they reached the human populace.

As announced today, this forum will open IC and OOC on Saturday, November 20th with a week-long celebration! Will your characters be in attendance?

Get ready for December!

The December Activity Check will take place in five days, on Sunday, 5th December. Please be sure that:
  • Your mini-profile is filled in
  • 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. 
  • Characters made before the last AC have posted at least once this month
  • Profile has been filled in if not done during acceptance
  • Your character's height is displayed in their mini-profile—if you reactivate an account, this needs doing!

In the meantime...
  • It's the last day to complete Charming NaNo, which also earns you the November challenge stamp!
  • Posting Wizard signups for December are open
  • We're now looking for events set in December!
