It’s the pivotal moment that everyone has been waiting for. Spreading across the castle is an outburst of fighting. Each and every student must make their own choice. The Rogue band of students have returned just as the hooded figures make their way into the castle to fight for what they stand for. We’ve all been waiting to know just what is going on and now the time has come but it will take fighting tooth and nail to get to the bottom of it, or in this case, the top. At the highest point of the castle you will find everything you need to know: Make your way to the Astronomy Tower?
Please make sure that you read through each post we have given you. There is quite a bit for you all to take part in and don’t forget that by doing so gives your character a history that they won’t be able to find elsewhere through plotting on site. Be a part of the motion; Choose your side!
Behold! The staff have added a new special power that many of you may find interesting; the Kitsune. After careful consideration, we have combed through many different lore to bring you our very own canon version. Please make sure you read the guide found in character development so you have a sense of what this amazing ability is, and how it will be utilized on the site. While there are things on there that are very different from regular lore, this is to make sure that the ability is as balanced out as the others.
Please, check it out and don’t forget that we still have applications open at the moment for Special Powers! You can apply here. Good luck to those who do and thank you to all who have taken the time to read through this new ability. We sincerely hope that you all are as excited about it as we are.
This month we have a spectacular assortment of role-plays with a spooky theme for you to sink your fangs into:
It must be tiring to spend so much time saving the same guy from his own awkwardness over and over, but that’s exactly what Hailee Levitt does when she discovers Viktor Devane unconscious and gets him to safety. Thinking her tattoos are the reason the guy is afraid of her, Levitt removes them for the evening and dresses to impress. Little does she realise that the concussed boy is terrified of everything – particularly girls. Can the tough girl finally get through to him? Will Viktor find some courage? Find out in October’s RPoTM, Camisado.
Taking the first runner up spot is an awkward tale of young romance and misunderstanding from Cassie Sullivan and Nathan Jayne in Time and Time Ago. Two former childhood sweethearts meet again for the first time and plenty of embarrassment follows. Since they last met, Cassie is all grown up and apparently Nathan has a Faine – whatever that means. Make sure to read it for yourself to find out what happens!
Well, if that guy ‘has a Faine’ – um, girlfriend – what is she doing flirting with one of the Scott twins at the ball? When Faine Denton decides to make a fashionably late entrance with a barely-there costume she catches the eye of Oliver Scott and the pair seem to hit it off right away with a cheeky exchange. It’s up to you to decide who is the biggest shameless flirt in this month’s second runner up, Dressed to Distress.
All these points earned will now be added to your overall house points which will give each of your houses a boost in the running for the house cup. Congratulations to each and every one of you for working so hard. There were many brilliant reads and for those that aren't finished with their posts - we hope to see what happens next!
The Halloween Ball went off without a hitch and we are so happy to see how many of you have attended and worked hard on your role-plays! In honor of this, staff has decided to host awards in which you can vote for!
Just click here and place your votes! You have from now until November 23rd at 12pm EST. In the meantime, we have closed down the forum and will be taking a quick look through to mark all posts made. They will be marked out of twenty points and the points you've earned from your posts will go towards your House. Once we are done marking, points earned for each house will be announced and the forum will be opened once more so you can finish your posts.
Again we are so happy in how many of you took part and we hope that our next ball will be just as good if not better! Thank you!

Double, double, toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble… It may sound like we’re introducing another potions class but don't be fooled by our rambling; it's time to get out your most ghoulish gladrags and hit the Halloween Ball in style!
We know you’re all more than just a scary face, so we have plenty of things to keep you entertained during the spooky season. If the ball doesn’t tickle your pickle, why not try your hand at pumpkin carving, the spooktacular costume contest, or even a good old round of bobbing for apples among the games.
To make sure everyone has plenty of time to enjoy the ball, we've decided to open it a littler earlier and give you until November 1st to get in touch with your inner monsters. Enjoy!
After the derailment of the Hogwarts Express, Claudia Visby is at St. Mungo’s hospital. She’s asleep when Dorian Faulkner visits her. The Hufflepuff clearly doesn’t feel comfortable, not just because he hates hospitals. There seem to be more unspoken things between the two Hogwarts students. The moment Claudia wakes up, she is surprised to see him as they didn’t have any contact in months. Does he care for her after all? What about the rumors that surround the Hufflepuff? Find out the answers in September’s RPotM, The Woman. a well-written, emotional role-play.
Romance seems to be in the air at Hogwarts – just maybe not for this pair! What starts off as Michael Halsey turning in a challenge from Charlotte Baker lands the guy in what could soon turn out to be more trouble than he can handle. After his life stops flashing before his eyes things seem to be going Mikey’s way, at least until his infamous mouth runs away with itself. Find out what happens by reading this month’s first runner up, Mission Accomplished.
Taking the second runner up spot is a trip down memory lane from Matt GreenSpark and Meghan Frisk in Past Interests. After escaping the riot, the pair must find a way to treat Meg’s injury and flee Hogwarts’ grounds before they’re discovered. If avoiding capture by the professors isn’t enough, it seems as though Matt has a few pursuers of his own to deal with. Who are these mysterious figures, and will the rebel duo make it out without being caught? Make sure to read it yourself to find out what happens!
Hey everyone! It’s that time again. It’s very rare that we open up the Special Powers application but here we are and you all should be very excited as we’ve updated information in the SP Guide to help you all out when applying (if you so choose). Please note that you can only apply once so that means you’ll really want to think about your application before you send it. Staff are going to be very picky when observing and choosing the final powers. Please be aware that since there are already so many Animagi on site, there are only two slots currently open. The other special powers don't currently have caps. If you wish to apply then click here. You have until the end of November on the 31st at Midnight Eastern Time (LA Time). Good luck to all those who apply!
