Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

*bumps*
The next pickup is less than two days away - and not at our usual day! It will be WEDNESDAY at 3:30 AM HOL (Tuesday in US time zones).

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Last afternoon was probably the most exciting pickup of the season; with eight people showing up, it was our best turnout yet! Just as last time, we began with two quick rounds of Xany. Based on a suggestion from Sky Alton, we divided the teams based on our coffee preferences: those of us who had th...

Re: Questions?

This may be stupid: but can candidates vote for their own submissions? I’ve seen places where this was allowed... and places where it was punished.

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Last evening was our fourth pickup of the season, and a good time was had by all! We began with two quick rounds of Xany (designed to allow three people to get points for any given question). After that, out came the Quods and the special cauldron for a few rounds of Quodpot. We divided our teams ba...

Re: Questions?

I'm a bit confused about the talent section: are we trying to showcase the talents of our characters or the RL person behind the character (or both)? For example, let's suppose that my 'talent' is an image of my character waving my wand to cast some fancy spell. What matters more in that case: the s...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Our third pickup last afternoon had the best turnout yet! We began with an old favorite, strapping cauldrons to our head for Creaothceann. On the final question, I wondered "why does it always take half an hour to get between any two points in the castle?" But then it was time to form team...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

We had our second pickup of the season last night; it came complete with all sorts of exciting randomness! We began by playing two games of Xany... on the Cascade set. (Because Xany recognizes first through third place and Cascade randomly chooses an answer out of many, you might not know that you t...

Re: Week 2: Ghostly Conversations N

The Ghost of the Bloody Clay continued playing along with the musical saw until the song ended. Realizing that no one around seemed to enjoy the sound of the saw, he decided not to try to accompany the next song with his musical accompaniment. Instead, he decided to float along towards a different c...

Re: Week 2: Ghostly Conversations N

The Ghost of Bloody Clay listened to the music and wondered how he could join in. He didn't have the right voice for singing, but maybe there was something nearby he could play to join in? He looked to his right and found a musical saw, which was next to a bow that seemed almost custom tailored to h...

Re: Week 2: Ghostly Conversations N

The Ghost of Bloody Clay decided now was a good moment to arrive to the party. He floated by Temperance's mouldy cheese plate but wasn't in the mood for that at the moment. However, he heard that there would be haggis at the hors d'oeuvres table, and that was what he was craving at the moment. So he...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

We had our first pickup on October 1, and although we didn't have the largest crowd, we still had an exciting time! First, at the request of Katelin, we played a round of Quodpot on the Cascade set. The bot was still set on the Quidditch World Cup teams, so it was Ireland vs Bulgaria for one last ti...
