The mods have come to a decision on the future of the game! Starting February 1, the game will be converted into a sort of musebox/dressing room where you guys can play out whatever you want in the setting, without any modly meddling. Fei and Icky will still be maintaining the comms to grant access to new journals, but applications, reserves, activity check and the like will be no more. The comms will be primarily for current players, but old players who would like to come back, and those that can be vouched for as not jerks are welcome!
But! All's not over and done with just yet! For our last official squarewarts event, we'll be fast forwarding ten years into the future! Your students have graduated; they're Quidditch stars, government officials, Aurors, or perhaps they're professors now themselves! Your professors have stayed to teach new generations of witches and wizards, or they've moved on to something new! The choice is yours!
One morning, each character will find an owl perched somewhere, staring down at them as they awake. In the owl's beak, a fancy envelope, with elegant gold embossed text on the front, spelling out their name. When the letter is opened, confetti (their House colors, of course!) flies out, and the Hogwarts school song begins to play:
Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald,
Or young with scabby knees,
Our heads could do with filling,
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot.
As the song finishes, the confetti swirls through the air, coming together to form a lovely bit of parchment, on which the following appears:
Headmaster and Headmistress Kramer cordially invite you to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for a celebration of the ten year anniversary of Ultimecia's final defeat.
We excitedly await your company!
Headmaster and Headmistress of Hogwarts,
Cid and Edea Kramer
As soon as they finish reading the letter, an RSVP form will appear, and the owl will look expectant, perhaps pecking those reluctant to respond. Whether they are inclined to attend celebrations or not, each character will find themselves compelled to fill it out in the affirmative, and send it off with the owl. It seems the Headmaster and Headmistress really want to catch up with everyone!
Important Event Note: For this event, players can bring in any past characters they have played, if they choose to! Old players may also join in on the fun. No re-apping necessary!
You may also use this post as a planning post! Talk to those your characters have close CR with, plan out the ten years between now and the event! GO WILD.
