Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This past evening saw another fun, exciting round of pickups, complete with a returning face and a runaway Quod! We began with two rounds of Xany: one with the normal set and one with the Cascade set. We then broke into teams based on Shadow's suggestion of "chemistry vs physics" - only to find the ...

Re: Class Assignments

I wrote the following essay on my final for Dario's Transfiguration class several years back (I took it before he was known as Professor Brighton) and it's still one of my favorites. As I'm sure you're aware, the new Human Transfiguration spell known as "Mental Duplication" has made major headlines ...

College Football Thoughts: 2018-19

The college football season is mostly over and the bowls are set! What are your thoughts about this season/predictions/teams that may or may not have been robbed in seeding?

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

On a cold, dark, rainy evening in late November, a handful of Quidditch diehards took to the pitch for the next round of Quidditch pickups. Beginning with a regular game of Xany, we deliberated over team selection and ended up going with "Students vs Professors"... but the conditions of the pitch al...

I used my [telescope] to look outside the [castle]. I saw the usual constellations: the Big Dipper, Orion's belt, and the "W" shape of my favorite constellation, Cassiopieia. But to the left of the W was a new constellation: it looked more like a [dinosaur] than any known constellation! [49 words, i...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Even though the regular season of Quidditch is already underway (there's another game this Saturday!) pickups have been continuing as scheduled, including this night. We began by placing cauldrons on our head for a quick round of Creaothceann, but then it was time to divide into teams. Advancing an ...

This evening, we had the first pickup in November... all four houses were represented and we even got to introduce a new player to the Quod! We began with two different "Xany" races (the first three to answer score points): one with the regular set (possibly the most exciting Xany race I have ever e...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Today it was time for the third pickup of the season! The turnout count wasn't the greatest, but we still had lots of fun nonetheless - and a smaller crowd allowed us to complete more games! We began with three rounds of Xany: in between our standard rounds with the regular question set and the Casc...

Tonight it was time for the second pickup session of the year, and even if the turnout wasn't quite as impressive as last time's, it was still filled with all sorts of excitement and explosions!

Re: Changing house and/or name

The process for changing your house is known as "Squibbing" and is detailed in the "Squibs" subsection of the HOL handbook (which can be found under the "Houses" section). The procedure involves spending 5 school months with a special status, "Squib", which means you're not affiliated with a house. ...

I'd love to see a class on the finer points of IRC (including IRC code and scripts)! I also hope to see the Parseltongue class return, but I always had the feeling that I would be the one who ended up bringing that one back ;)
