Hi everyone! Can you believe it is already October? I am SO ready for spooky season! We have a short update with some big announcements this time around.
Electives Fair
The Electives Fair has been up for about a week now, and we encourage second years to attend! @Professor Warren Spencer is super excited! Let us not disappoint him ;) :p
🦡 Final Quidditch Match 🦡
Unfortunately, Hufflepuff won the Quidditch Cup! Hufflepuff is now responsible for taking on Ilvermorny and winning for Hogwarts New Zealand. The game starts TOMORROW:frantics: and as a reminder, all Quidditch chat here and not Shouty. Get ready! I still do not see any loser party for Slytherin...yet
SDA-sponsored Duelling Tournament
The Dueling Tournament is in round 3, and it's been exciting. 🕺If you haven't caught up, a list of topics has been posted here, and there are already 3 champions. Catch up!

Lastly, let's take a moment to also thank Kris and Kiersten * for the time they are dedicating to this event. :wub:
Brightstone Weekend
Our favorite time of the semester is here! The Brightstone and Makutu Mall forums are open for students. The Weekend ends at the end of this week, so start your topics and finish them (if you can :r ). See any that you really, really liked? Submit a Plot Highlight!

Spooky Story Competition
If you have not seen the Spooky Story Competition thread here you go! Using emoticons and as few words as possible, create a prize-winning story that will scare us to x_x !
Donna and Kaitlyn are stepping back
Life doesn't always go to plan, so you have to adjust. As a result, Donna and Kaitlyn are stepping down from GMing. Let's thank them for helping the site run smoothly and support them. We hope that when life calms down for them they may find their way back to us.

Additionally, since Site Staff is down by two people, expect more time to handle things. Please be patient with us, and the report button is the fastest way to notify Staff of issues. This is especially true when spam manages to escape us. :)
Backseat Moderation
We have noticed backseat moderation is on the rise, and we want to remind everyone there is a report button to report rulebreaking and potential rulebreaking. If there are concerns about roleplays, like whether or not something goes beyond the norm of the 'typical' experience for a witch/wizard and warrants a special plot request, you should reach out to Admin. It is appropriate for Admin to reach out to members on rulebreaking, especially if a plot request may be needed.

  • New Friends
    • Where there is love and a new family is being made.
    • Characters: Killian Taylor, Marley Pattinson, Teila Owens-Lee


  • Competitionsss
  • Hufflepuff Quidditch superiority? o_O

That is all folks! 2 weeks until we meet again!

Aww, thank you Donna & Kaitlyn for all your hard work over the years! HNZ won't be the same without you guys in orchid, but focus on that real life stuff & take care of yourselves :wub:

And thank you Lovi for the update!! Can't wait for Hufflepuff to be crowned supreme Quidditch champions of all time :cool:

Proof that I am human:
While Daphne is fabulous, it is actually Kiersten (@Adorah Zumwalt ) who are hosting the dueling tournament. My first post has been edited to reflect that!
