Inside the castle walls, students return to the familiar routine of the school year; 9am classes, and dorm room gossip, while outside the castle walls the world becomes more and more unpredictable. War is looming. Terror is lurking. Fear is waiting. And one man can not keep reality from breaching the walls... Now everyone is being pressured to pick sides...
Each year, it is the job of the Hogwarts Prefects and Head Students to plan and organize events around the school.
This Halloween, they have opted for a Haunted House experience on the grounds!
Upon exiting the castle, you will be greeted by a low lying fog, separating into a clear path
that leads you to a dilapidated house, with the trees of the Forbidden forest looming behind it.
Many horrors await you inside of the Haunted House of Horrors!
There is, of course, a catch! The Marauders (courtesy of the fact that James and Remus have been involved in the planning!)
have taken this opportunity to add a few extra tricks, treats, and scares to the house, so tread carefully within.
This is, optionally, a dice game to keep things exciting! More info will be provided.
Giant Pumpkin Carving!
It simply wouldn't be Halloween without Hagrid's giant pumpkins! This year, however, it's up to the students to get
involved in carving some pumpkins up. Battle through the fog and make your way to the Gamekeeper's Hut - you'll
recognize it for it's orange glow. All the tools and carving equpitment you need are waiting for you, so don't
miss your chance to create a pumpkin masterpiece!
Candy Costume Party!
Halloween requires costumes. It also requires sweets and candy. Therefore, it's only right we throw a candy costume party!
This year, Honeydukes are providing the treats - all of your familiar favorites and a few new, slightly bizarre ones
to try out.
Slugs, Bugs, Warts, and Bones, whether you want a Slimy Slug Sour, or a Freaky Finger Fruit Pop, Honeydukes
has provided everything your could ask for!
So put on your best costume and work up a sweet tooth, then join us in the Great Hall for a Sugar and Spice,
All Things Scary and Nice Candy Costume Dance!
Everybody's Development will start here. Use the form in this board and start a thread with your character's name as the title. Once you've completed this section your thread will be moved into the Second Year board.
Each board contains the year-appropriate form for progression. The form you find in that board is the only form you should post in it. Eg, third year board, third year form. Don't post a fourth year form here.
You will find that the question get a little harder and a little more in depth the further through Development you go. Some of them will require a little more thought and a more developed answer than others. The more you write, the more chance you have of your Development being approved.
Questions will also start to think about what your character wants to achieve once they graduate from the school. Remember that just because this is what your character wants to do, you are not committing to it. They can do anything they like once they graduate.
Once you have completed Seventh Year Development and been approved your thread will be locked and will remain in this board. Once locked, you will be able to graduate your character the next time Advancement is running. Congrats!
If you would like to Advance your character you will need to have developed them in this board first, starting at the beginning and working through to your character's current year. This board will always be open so you can complete this at any time.
