Thanks for Playing!

I would just like to take a few moments to thank those that all participated and assisted in Hogwarts Live Action 5 - The Turnabout Tale. The players managed to help save the day and the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher from a horrible fate.

Now for the future of Hogwarts Live Action, I think we may take at least a year off from it. We've run HLA for over five years now and it is time for a change. Next year may involve a Diagon Alley Live for you die-hard fans but we need to figure what elements you folks most like to make for a wonderful event.

The question becomes what to do next as well. We love family oriented events and still think there are a number of ways to get players of all ages together. Perhaps we were thinking of the world of Narnia, or maybe a universe where everything is possible but held together by a thin thread and together the players must work together to save it.

Anyway just ideas what do you folks think?

Welcome Back!

It has been a number of months since a recent entry, but we have some great news. We have reacquainted at the Ren-Faire with some of the folks that want to help us out. Curious enough other folks also called us that same day so it looks like our requests have been heard, so thank you whoever you are.

We have the basic plot ready and it looks like we will be moving forward in the next few weeks. So look forward to more regular postings.

Thanks!

Let Us Continue!

Well it has been a couple months since the book has been released and since we last posted. So let the games begin, or rather continue. We have a premise for the new story but where will it take place at is one question, and of course now we have the option to continue past where the last book left off.

More regular post coming is all I will say for now!

Congratulations Hogwarts United!

Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry could only have one Quidditch team participate in the Hermean Duster Derby. So, rather than splitting the school by letting only one house participate, school wide tryouts were held for a united team. The Hogwarts United team consisted of students from all four houses. The three chasers were Bethy Blue, Tink Erbell, and Bunny Meir. The two beaters were Bunny Ninja and Selena. The keeper was Ishmael. The seeker was Joseph Flynt. And the team captain was Selena the beater. Congratulations to the team, which made it to the Hermean Duster Derby finals!
