Re: Week One – San Marino

My contribution to the Museum of Curiosities is this large sphere! I found it about fourteen years ago while on a train from New Jersey, headed to New York. While at a stop I noticed a small box under the seat across from me. As no one was around i picked it up to see what it might be. Imagine my su...

Re: SQL 2018 sign-up post

A) Quaffle (the "standard" Quidditch game) B ) Snitchplay (i.e. taking part in a Seeker tournament) C) Other broom games (e.g. Creaothceann, Quodpot, Xany, and similar games) D) Forum activities (creative and puzzles) outside of IRC D FOR SURE! A, B, and C will definitely depend on me getting my stu...

Re: Will there be a Sequel to Cursed Child?

I am kind of done with Harry Potter's story, but definitely not the world! I'd love a story based at one of the other schools, or a RAB story, maybe something more about the founding of Hogwarts? Cursed Child was ok, it just didn't fulfill the (admittedly high) hopes I had for it. I wish JKR had con...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

One thing I really do like though is that your character has a hand in shaping the HP universe as we've come to know it — from giving Bill Weasley a taste of curse-breaking to helping Hagrid name Fang . Yes! I think JKR actually put a decent amount of thought into house this game works, as well as ...

Re: Study tips

I also love having a to-do list. I have a Google Sheets document of all the things due and when, and then I organize it by deadline in each category (classes, Dungeons, HOLLERS, Misc., newsletters, The Sett, teaching.) The feeling of checking something off really is quite awesome! Then i highlight t...

428th Quidditch World Cup

To celebrate the excited of the 428th Quidditch World Cup, Andrew Lincoln (narrator of Quidditch Through the Ages) was sorted into his Hogwarts House, as well as finding out his Patronus! Were you surprised by his results? They've also posted some great tips on how to survive a Quidditch Match here!...

Magic in the World

So I've recently started the Bartimaeus Trilogy (on book 2 now) and the magic system in it is quite different than that of Harry Potter, or many other series that I've read. This series has Magicians (as opposed to witches/wizards/warlocks) who have no power of their own. Instead, they have the math...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

I've reached the point where I've run out of story and can only level up my character/attributes/friendships until more is released. Here are my thoughts: -The art design is still amazing, very well done! -The storyline actually does get better and I'm pretty happy with the direction it's going -I l...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

The commentary throughout is fun though! My favorite one so far is when Penny's boggart is revealed to be a werewolf, Tonks asks why someone would be afraid of werewolves, and your character responds "Well, Tonks, I assume it's because werewolves are terrifying, murderous creatures." Yes! I also lo...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

Some of the interactions in classes are amusing, like talking to Madam Hooch about her hair or glaring at Merula in order to gain experience. Yes! I love those, and the background characters doing things, especially in flying class like when they get hit in the face with the broom! The questions fo...

Re: Harry Potter Legos

Pottermore has finally released images of the new Harry Potter Lego sets that will be available in August!!

I'm pretty excited for these in addition to ones from the new movies. I especially love that the Whomping Willow has a secret tunnel! Which one are you most excited about?

PUFFS

A filmed version of the family-friendly version of the off-Broadway play "Puffs" was shown in select theatres this past week and then those of us who backed it on Kickstarter received private Vimeo links of the film. Did you see it? *note* while the film is the more family-friendly version of the sh...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

Further update: I'm still frustrated by the energy levels, but I've worked out a pretty good system I think to get tasks done. I always do the 8hr classes so I have more time, I don't start until I have full energy and once I use up the energy I just go do some other task until my energy is mostly f...

Dementors

Now that we're halfway through the term, let's talk about Dementors! This is the time when students tend to get really busy and overwhelmed, both in school and life outside of school. Homework gets put off as other things come up, and then suddenly you realize you haven't looked at the class project...
