Task 11: Leave Your Mark

It’s almost time to leave the fair for this year. On your way out though, you see a group of people clustered around something. It turns out to be a huge canvas, propped up against the castle wall. As you approach, someone passes you a quill and invites you to add a message. For 5 points, please wri...

Task 10: Taking Stock

As you turn away from your final trip to the refreshment table, you have to gather together everything you’ve picked up during the fair. Sheets and sheets of parchment, free gifts and various other things, they’ve all been thrust on you by very enthusiastic people. You’ll need to try and make sense ...

Re: Changing house and/or name

Arianna is right but in addition, the Privacy Policy also says
Should you do so accidentally (sign up with your real name), please send an email to headoffice@hol.org.uk to have your HOL name changed.
Emailing the HO is far more effective than sending them all personal messages.

Club Booths

The club area is as noisy and bustling as all the ones that came before it. You can see a book fort with flags fluttering from the top, a table buckling under the weight of enticing puzzles and what appear to be severl huge, twelve sided dice moving around on their own (and intent on knocking people...

Task 8: Fabulous Freebies

You notice that a lot of people seem to be carrying far more stuff than they were when you all entered the fair. Someone passes with a veritable niffler’s hoard of brightly coloured items and you backtrack towards the booths, on the lookout for freebies. For this task, we’d love you to design someth...

Task 7: Gifted and Talented

At the centre of the fair is a large table, groaning under the weight of an assortment of items. At a glance, you can see books, telescopes, bottles of potion ingredients and batches of cookies (probably not the best idea to have those last two so close together). This is the HOL gift exchange and i...

Re: Names!

Mine is pretty boring. Sky Alton is a character in the first novel I ever wrote (for NaNoWriMo 2012) and I was still very much into that fictional universe when I signed up to HOL almost a year later (also, I was in a hurry as back then, there was only a narrow window where HOL accepted signups). I ...

Department Booths

The Departments section of the fair is cluttered. Quidditch balls are whizzing overhead, a flock of quick quotes quills are churning out quatrains by themselves and there are ribbons and origami flowers fluttering everywhere. The Departments are an excellent place to unwind or challenge yourself out...

Task 5: Creative Cartography

As you pass yet another table, a breeze knocks a pile of parchment off the edge. You reach down to snag a few sheets before you accidentally step on them. They appear to be maps of the castle with a few important locations marked, though you don’t think nearly enough things have been labelled to sto...
