As a lover for Harry Potter, when I came across this role playing Harry Potter website, I was ecstatic and I would now like to give my review of the entire thing.
Upon logging in, I received an owl that informed that I must wait 24 hours for verification to pass before I could be sorted and in the meantime, I looked around the website and I found various different interesting things.
Daily Money – Every single hour, the amount of galleons change ranging anywhere from 5 galleons to 500 (though there is probably more, those are just what I witnessed.) This is a big gamble because you never know what the amount is going to be next time you check so often times, you settle and then regret it.
The Well – If you put 5 galleons into the well, you can win a random amount of money that is actually rather interesting though is just as risky as Daily Money except for this one where you actually pay galleons in order to receive galleons.
The first 5 games can earn you so many galleons though the wizarding math was rather confusing as you had to pay with chocolate frogs (and I completely lacked ever finding out where to find them!)
My favorite game was Counting the Wizarding Money where you literally just counted the Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts and it gave you so much money based off how quick you were in counting.
Once the Verification was up
Once it was up, it finally allowed me to get sorted where they asked you various questions (fill in the blank, check the boxes, and other various forms of questions) and then said to wait a few more hours to officially be sorted.
From what I understood of the website, the longevity of your wait completely is random and just depends on the circumstances. I have no idea how long mine personally took as I went to bed and then woke up to find out I had been sorted and my blood status had been decided.
This is actually exactly what I wanted as Slytherin’s are my preferred house and honestly, I would probably be a death eater.
Anyways, after this was decided I was finally able to register for classes where they gave me a long list of classes to choose from. After that, they told me the supplies I must get in order to begin taking the class.
After getting the supplies, since I had started after September 1st, I had a few late assignments.
Something I do not like : They give deductions for late assignments and as I completely adore this technique for if you joined before September first but it kind of sucks when you’re new and you already have no change of getting full points.
Anyways, the assignments are pretty easy. They give anywhere between 4 to 5 actual questions and if you answer them, you have the option of doing extra credit work.What you do is that you launch the lesson where they give you the lesson, very similar to reading somebodies roleplaying work.
You search the lessons for the answers, they are pretty straightforward and the answer is very clearly stated. This actually my favorite part of this entire thing, you get to take interesting classes and get graded on it. #YeahIAmaNerd
As you go around the area, you can find a variety of people performing magic. For example, while I was buying my books, I stumbled across somebody having thrown fireworks around.
Another time, I logged in to find somebody had thrown a Dark Mark Pendant that made everything dark and had Voldemort related thing. The Dark Mark that was in the sky during Goblet of Fire, Bellatrix Lestrange, and even the words Mordesmorde (at least, I think that is what it said, I am not completely sure!)
This actually genuinely pretty cool.
This is an interesting format as you can earn money by posting a chapter (Galleons, of course!) based of the quality of your work which I thought was really cool.
I am currently working on getting a Story Quill and Story Parchment but as of this moment, I do not own two school textbooks so I really need to work on that before I go on and post chapters and stuff. However, reading the fan fiction is perfectly fine.
Another thing I do not like : For the fanfiction, you can not search just the fanfiction stuff. So if you are looking for a Drapple story, you have to search through every single fan fiction instead of typing it in which is a hassle. Drapple = Draco + Apple.
I am not a role player, I like this game essentially only for the classes and the fan fiction so I was really worried that I would actually have to role play but you don’t and perhaps I will get more into role playing later on in the game but as of this moment, it is not something that I plan on participating.
DO NOT WORRY IF YOU ARE NOT A ROLE PLAYER.
After you complete your seven years at Hogwarts, you can choose a career where you then take classes based off your career and earning your own ability based off the career.
Every August, you are given the opportunity to change your career (AND STILL KEEP THE ABILITY YOU EARNED!)
The jobs are also pretty interesting!
A Problem That I Ran Into
So I genuinely have no memory of this but apparently, I had made two prior accounts to this one and I received an owl that informed that I had to choose between THOSE TWO. I don’t even remember those so I know I couldn’t have done much (if anything with them!) so I had to struggle to try and keep the one I had but thankfully they allowed me to.
ALL IN ALL IMPRESSION ??? I LOVE IT!!!!
Even though there are a few things that I would probably tweak, I genuinely do enjoy the site and I can’t wait to see more of it.
Don’t forget to add me as your hogfriend! Sharkycandy.
