It was a busy morning, first you had the Herbology and then the Transfigurations. Transfigurations proved to be a class you are not so good in during your time in Hogwarts. You are still yet to transfigure anything successfully. Just after the lunch you have a meeting with your distant and older cousin Alfred. You meet with him at the outside grounds with a nice view of the Lake. The weather is starting to get cold and it seems it will rain later today. Alfred looks like a normal guy. He is wearing his Hufflepuff robes and some extra scarves for the find. He doesn't look like your father or your uncle, or you think so at least. You meet awkwardly and start talking about general things like the weather and the classes. You learn that his mother and father are both working in the St.Mungo as a healer and he also wants to be a healer when he is done with his studies. He asks you what do you want to be when you are finished. "You should plan this stuff you know... you need certain grades at certain classes for the job you want.">I want to become a Potioner>I want to become an Auror>I want to open a book store in the Diagon Alley>I want to work in the Ministry about Magical Creatures>I didn't decide it yet>Other
>>42923220>I want to become a Potioneer
>>42923220>I want to work in the Ministry about Magical CreaturesBut we should aim for Auror.
>>42923301>Government stoogeNever! We will master the subtle and exact art of unethical experimental breeding and/or potions
>>42923330Think about our family responsibilities and duties!A good position in a Ministry could bring some stability back to our fractured family.
>>42923220>I want to become a Professer here.
>>42923330>>42923238>>42923301>>42923436"I am not sure yet. I like potions. Also magical creatures... I think something about this stuff...maybe even teaching about it here...I don't know." Alfred just smiles and says it's a big part of the profession Healer to know about potions and potioneering. He tells you he can teach you some "cool" potions if you like later but now he needs to run for his class. He tells you maybe his parents will also come to your house for the Christmas dinner but he is not sure.>Ask something to your cousin before he leaves>See you soon!
>>42923132>I want to work in the Ministry about Magical Creatures
>>42923509Potions and magical creatures? Nigga, sounds like you want to make wands.
>>42923509>See you soon!
>>42923509>Ask something to your cousin before he leavesAsk him if he knows anything about that magical creature our DADA teacher told us to find out about. Get dat third year knowledge. Hell even if he doesn't know shit he's still got that nerd blood; he'll probably know where to find out.
>>42923638"Hinkypunks? Strange I was just reading about this the other day. Check for the book called "Marsh Dwellers" in the library. It has lot of information about this kind of creatures. "See you soon, John! It's nice to have someone from the family here." He smiles and leaves.You also leave for the Charms class with the Professor Flitwick, he teaches the class about some strange magical alphabets that you find boring. When you return to the Ravenclaw Area you find that you have received a letter. It's from your mother."Dear John,I am very happy to hear you made it into the Quidditch team! I am looking forward to hear about your success in the team. I have never played as a Seeker so I can not help you with that, but I am sure you will prove to be excellent at it. There will be a surprise for you at home when you come back for the Christmas. Enjoy your days and do not neglect your studies.Love, Mom"Now you have some free time to spend.>Study with Anya, Glenn and Valdis>Read the Hobbit>Research something>Try to sneak in the Hospital Wing>Study X class>Talk to someone>Other

>>42923821Madame Hooch for sure at least.
>>42923749Practice flying. Spend some galleons of broom wax or whatever.
>Potions>Herbology>Magical Creatures>FlyingAre we just a savant at non-wand activities? How shit is our wandwork?
>>42924005We're pretty good at DADA, though.
>>42924005We good at charms, and DADA. As he just said, we can't transmogrify ice into water.>>42923928Do you actually keep track of the hours we spend study/researching the various things?
>>42924005Potions require wand work.
>>42924049>Do you actually keep track of the hours we spend study/researching the various things?Yeah
>>42924049http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Harry_Potter_and_the_Tabletop_RPGOur classes will bring us up to Skill Rank 1 in the subjects we are taking at the end of year 1, we can study to learn other skills or get ahead of the curve. We actually learn nothing from Potions and Herbology class
>>42924124When do we get exposed to coffee, so that we can power through all-nighters studying and doing extra credit work?
>>42924167Year 4 potions.
>>42924154This is kind of strange of the system. I mean than after 1 year it is useless to have any advantage. I think I will treat them as advancing to skill 2.
>>42924167>>42924188Could we use our connection with Anya to get an espresso machines and put it in our room?
>>42923795>>42923808>Study with Anya, Glenn and Valdisor>Go to library to get the book on HinkypunksSharing information on the Goblin or Hinkypunks with your classmates is totally up to you.
>>42924211Doesn't that make studying skills we have classes in LESS valuable? +1 Skill Rank is the domain of higher-level classes, while lower level ones just say "Up to Rank X"I kind of like it like that
>>42924227>Go to library to get the book on HinkypunksWe can be the bringer of good grades and answer sheets to our friends.
>>42924227Study dem Hinkypunks, son. Gotta keep your nerd game strong.
>>42924154Just like my real life school. Considering it is hogwarts, we should probably just spend all our time on DADA. Although, I've always thought charms was the most useful and transfiguration oddly specific. So unless we want animagus, it is maybe a dump stat.>>42924124So does studying with our friends count as persuasion or learning that skill, or both, or half to each?>>42924227Study with Anya
>>42924245Well it's because the classes are fixed to a degree, they do not teach you anything more than what is expected. So only way to raise them more should be independent studies.
>>42924227>>Go to library to get the book on Hinkypunks
>>42924288>>42924263>>42924248You head to the library and check out the book your cousin told you about. It has lot of information on creatures that live in marshes and bogs from hags, hinkypunks, imps to marsh ogres and will-o-wisps. You read all there is on the Hinkypunks and you think you quite know anything that is to be known about them. Anya looks quite interested also with the book and asks you if she can also check it out. You leave it to her.Two day passes and now you are once again back in the Potions class that is in common with the Slytherin. To your surprise David is in the class. He looks pale and a bit slow but in general he looks okay. He must have been treated well. Professor Snape is as usual and just tells you about how Potions are an art that most of you will probably never master and lack any kind of intelligence and then he gives you a task to brew a Herbicide potion. It is used to kill and destroy plants. The ingredients are ready in the stores and you just need to brew it.He takes 5 points from Ravenclaw after Valdis makes a comment on how the smell of the potion is similar to the smell of a troll's fart.Roll 1d10
>>42924514Great wizarding Jesus Vladis, what the fuck? Are you a plant? Are you working for another house or are you just stupid?
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>42924514Reminder to ask Valdis why he sniffs troll butt.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>42924514a bagel is not a donut captcha.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>42924514
>>42924514What is the date? Is it our second week at hogwarts?>>42924569DO NOT TAUNT THE CAPTCHA!
>>42924569Fuck you captcha. You did this to us you vengeful bastard.
>>42924569You just had to taunt the capcha, didn't you.
>>42924622How do we raise our stats? Increasing our Finesse could prove useful.
>>42924514All the descriptions in the books say that there is time for multiple attempts in a class periodToss it out and start from scratch!
>>42924610No it's more, this should be the fifth week.>>42924569You follow the book's instructions but with the recent things in your mind, like the prophecy and goblins and quidditch you feel distracted. In the end your potion doesn't look good at all. Well you can't be successful every time...The class dismisses and Professor Snape calls David to his side when the others are leaving. You are free to do what you want until the evening.>Feel free to discuss
>>42924738You get +1 to a stat at the end of each year
>>42924753Brew an Herbicide potion, We're not stopping till we get it right!
>>42924753>That feel when you make a good roll>Then the second roll totally fucks it upWait for Dave. See if he's OK.
>>42924753Attempt to get the potion right this time, and tell our friends about the book on hinkypunks.
>>42924753>>42924775Make that herbicide potion. Just 'cause you fuck up doesn't mean anything. If you give up then it means something.
>>42924738Well if I got it right, it takes 60 hours to raise an easy skill from 0 to 1. You get 3 hours by attending the class every week. Then the rest is up to how much you study. You can also reduce the time as Intelligence x 10 and also by pay any number of galleons up to your Spirit score to reduce the study time by 10 for each galleon spent.Persuasion is gained by spending social time instead of studying.And you should get 1 attribute point every year if I remember correctly.
>>42924760So you're saying that by the end of year four we could be MAX NERD.
>>42924818Can we get a tutor for over the summer?So we don't lose our brain gainz?
>>42924775>>42924794>>42924809You are not defeated. You want to make this potion right. You take some of the ingredients with you and get more from the Herbology class and start preparing them.Roll 1d10
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>42924925First roll never fucking matters
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>42924925Fuck plantsAlso, we should get on studying some Dark Arts. It would be our best ability if we learned it, since it uses Power+Int. Our lack of Finesse is hurting us so badly in potions
>>42924941Third time's the charm!
>>42924941Goddamn, we are sucking this session.
>>42924941>You needed a 10 you got a 9You start preparing the ingredients, you get some hurklump juice, some strange herbs, lionfish spines and some flobberworm mucus. But this mucus is impossible to dice as the book suggests. You just end up destroying your ingredient. Today is not your day for brewing potions it seems. You return to the Ravenclaw common area after dinner and find Anya looking worried. "Have you seen Glenn?" she asks.>No why?>Yeah (lie)>Other
>>42924941That's why I like 3 rolls over DC great succes 2 normal success 1 normal failure and 0 severe failure
>>42925047>No why?Oh dammit, he used the herbs, didn't he.
>>42925047No. Fuck off.We're doing this.Round 3 mofos
>>42925047>No I havent>Do you need me to help look?>I have a potion I need to brew
>>42925065Unless we all make sure the second roll is high, we don't have a chance in hell.
>>42925085It's a 70 percent success rateIf we fail a third time in a row we are dropping out and learning to flip burgers
>>42925047No. Sorry. I got to brew this potion. If he's not around for dinner I'll help you look for him.
>Trait gained: Stubborn
>>42925111It IS after dinner.Pay attention.
"I just haven't seen him since the class and he wasn't at the dinner either." >I can go look for him>I need to brew a potion>Other
>>42925139>I can go look for him
>>42925139>Potion>never give up, never surrenderWe have priorities. Rescuing our friend from possibly mortal danger can wait.
>>42925139Potion. Game. Son.
>>42925139>>I can go look for him>plot derailed by an useless potion
Wait, our Mom taught us french, right? Do we... do we have family at Beauxbatons? Maybe on Mom's side?
>>42925139>>I can go look for him
>>42925139>PotionAlways finish what you started, son
>>42925264No she hired a teacher to teach you. She doesn't have any family in France. Only relative she has living abroad is her uncle who lives in Lapland.
Make a Griffyndor go look for him.They love adventuring and stuff.We got magical agent orange to make.
>>42925168>>42925178>>42925303>>42925426You say you don't know where is he and that you need to brew a potion. You leave Anya in the common room and head upstairs to an empty room to practice your potion. Half hour passes and you are trying to prepare the ingredients once again. >Roll1d10
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>42925459First roll is meaningless!
Rolled 3 (1d10)With Cordy at our side anything is possible!
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>42925459nat 1
>>42925507Literally did one point better each time.
>>42925517Well, atleast we succeeded. If we got a 9 on a 2 we should have just barely passed this time.
>>42925507You start preparing them like the last two times and this time manage to dice the mucus in a correct way. Another half hour passes and you are ready to try to brew it if you want. It's around 21:30 now. It will take two hours at least.>Roll 1d10
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>42925546
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>42925546
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>42925546
Part of me wonders if Snape is going to be impressed at the time and effort we put in to learn this potion or just think that we're retarded because it took us a whole goddamn day.
>>42925577Finally once you start putting the ingredients in you feel like in control again. You put them by one by, stir the potion properly and concentrate on your wandwork and after two hours you have a disgusting smelling and disgusting looking but perfectly made Herbicide potion to use as you please. You can take a vial and dump the rest or do something else.>You have learned about the Herbicide Potion
>>42925665>Vial them up. Keep some for ourselves and one as presentation for Snape.Evil plants might attack us guys. Keep some in reserve.
>>42925665Feed Cordy then goo look for David if he still hasn't been found. Reassure bee that we aren't trying to kill ALL THE FOOD.
>>42925659It's Snape; of course we're an idiot compared to his brilliance.And, though unpalatable, he really is just that good at potions.
>>42925665Put it all in vials, so that we have extras and we can present one to Professor Snape for inspection.Then feed Cordelia and go help Anya look for Glenn.
>>42925691We should ask his advice for DADA.Guy wants that class so bad it hurts.Plus every DADA teacher never lasts more than a year, while we got Snape every year.If we got on his...less grumpy side.
>>42925704This. This shit right here. This is the good shit.
>>42925704Check the Divination Room.
You store the potion in several vials and you are planning to present one to the Professor Snape. You head down to see just in time that Anya entering the Common Room from outside. She looks completely devastated. Her curly hair looks wet and her face looks red. "It's Glenn! He is hurt. He is in the Hospital Wing now. Professor Sprout found him near the forest!"
so we ignored Glenn to make a potion good work guys
>>42925788Goddammit Glenn you dumb son of a bitch. Fuck. Guess we got to take a trip into the forest to find out what this motherfucker was looking for. Anya you know how to use a shotgun, right? , Your parents owned a small bookstore,
>>42925788"Can we go see him? Did the professor say why he was there?"Wow, way to go being a shitty friend, guys.
>>42925803>/tg/ decision making
>>42925803Are you saying friends are more important than studying and grades?Well. Maybe our pureblood ravenclaw member isn't as rounded as we thought? Kids gotta work on stuff.
>>42925866 Disregard Classmates. Acquire Grades.
>>42925851Anya is 11, and this being England, she is very unlikely to have experience with a shotgun, nor would her parent's store have one.And even then, with the wards around Hogwart's, we couldn't use one.
Is there a way we can make a belt or something to put vials of potions in? Hide it under our cloak and put out potions whenever we need.Also we adopt a Bee superhero personae.With Glenn as our Raven Claw sidekick.Anya can be Queen Bee...
>>42925976Well shit, I guess we're going into the forest unarmed.
>>42925984Yes to the first lineLess yes to the others
This is brilliant and I love being the Hermione of the group>10/10 would abandon friend to unknown fate again
>>42925984You can make a belt like this.>>42925857"No...they do not know. Professor Sprout was just there to bring some herbs. She says she found her on the ground, bleeding. I..I don't know." She gets teared up. "I just hope he is okay. They don't let visitors. Last thing Glenn told me was he was going to study in the Ravenclaw. I don't know why he went there."
>>42925334Oh well, maybe we could still spend a semester studying abroad. and at the same time we can spend a semester studying a broad.
Place your bets people>Werewolf>Vampire>Goblin>His own goddamn stupidity
>>42926071K.Potion Belt will be my next vote.Might wanna talk to someone who knows that stuff.Or a book.>>42926088All four.
>>42926088Bat animagus, not a vampire.
>>42926071He was going to the Ravenclaw Common Room?When was this?
>>42926119S'what I bet.Should learn about vampires anyway.Good info for if we do run into one or two.
>>42926071Let's go to Professor Sprout to ask about Glenn. Maybe she knows more, or she can get us in to see Glenn.
>>42926143What do you mean if we run into one or two?We will never stop studying and as such will never meet anything like that
>>42926088Gytrash probably.He probably panicked and forgot to use lumos.
>>42926140"After the potions class. He told me he will study something about Herbology. But when I come here he was already left. What do you think happened to him? He is the second victim?" She asks teary eyed.>Yes I think so>Yes and I will stop this>I have no idea>No he must have been hurt by something in the forest>No I think a Goblin might have hurt him>Other
>>42926374>He could bee >Let her hold Cordy
>>42926374>Other: We shouldn't jump to conclusions. We should talk with David to find out what happened to him first.Let her pet Cordelia, its a very calming action.
>>42926374"Here. Just pet the magic bee. Everything will be fine." Prepare for forest adventure. Good thing we have all this plant killer.
>>42926374>>I have no ideaBut we should tell a teacher about the prophecy now though
>>42926534>Trusting Hogwarts teachers with anything. Jesus it's like you want things to get worse.
>>42926397>>42926437>>42926443>>42926460You sit down at the table, not many students around at this time but you can see some two older girls gossiping near the fire without caring about you. Cordelia flies around and you take her and pet her before giving her to Anya. She starts petting her and seems to be calming down. "It has to be the prophecy. He said someone will get hurt in two weeks. And someone did. Him. Maybe he finished his study and wanted to go back to the Herbology class to bring something...I don't know... and got attacked on the way. I have no idea. They didn't let us talk with any teacher and just sent us to our beds."You say that you should also talk to the David, to Anya. She nods. "If it's the same thing that hurt them...But what if it isn't? And I saw David after the class. He was just telling some students how he doesn't remember much other than taking a walk near the lake."
>>42926729Let's put our Ravenclaw intellect to use.What commonalities do the two attacks have?Time of day?Any wounds or scars left on the victims?Anything that they might have had on them at the time of the attacks?
>>42926813Both happened outside of the castle, near the forest or the lake, evening, not big or visible wounds (at least as far as you know).
Tim walks down from the stairs. "Only Valdis is sleeping in the room. What's going on?" After you tell him the events he seems excited. "What are we waiting for? Let's go to see Glenn.">Woah calm down it's illegal to go out after dinner>It can be dangerous>Yes>Other
>>42926934>Yesfuk da police
>>42926934>Woah calm down it's illegal to go out after dinnerW were able to get Glenn's herbs by cleverness and patience.Use our head, think things through, make a plan, and then execute it.
>>42926934 Can we take Vladis to the forest so he can stop losing us fucking points. >Yes
>>42926984>>42927046We don't even know where in the forest that Glenn was found, and you want to go out there at night?And you're taking Valdis' suggestion to go? What the fuck is wrong with you, that you'd follow the suggestion of our class fuckup?
>>42927131How can one person be so wrong?The question is leaving to visit Glenn in the hospital wing, and Valdis is asleep. Tim suggested it.
finally site is back?
>>42927221looks like it
>>42927171Yes, but it's still true that we have always tried to come up with safer plans than running headlong into trouble like a Gryffindor.It's what got us an extra credit project and brownie points with Professor Sprout rather than potentially getting caught and in trouble.
>>42926984>>42927046>>42927273>>42927342Do we have a plan? An excuse to be out at night? A way to evade Argus? Do we even know where in the infirmary Glenn is sleeping?
>>42927368No, no, no and no. We're not the greatest planners. What we lack in planning we make up for with magic.
>>42926984>>42927046>>42927273>>42927342"Tim is right. Let's go to check how is Glenn!" you say standing up."But it's not allowed to wander in the castle at this time." Anya says, petting Cordy. "Yet...it's Glenn. We have to see. I am in." Tim smiles. "Let's check our friend."Anya runs upstairs really quick to get a jacket and Tim runs to get his wand. You already have your wand with you. >Get something else>Let's go
>>42927405>Get something elseBring Cordelia if she's awake, get that spy bee going.
>>42927401>We're not the greatest planners.But we did just that when we told Glenn he was stupid for thinking of breaking into Sprout's materials cabinet, and we were able to trick her into giving us what we needed.It's just pure laziness and stupidity on the part of players like you.
>>42927405Our invisibility cloak? nope. All we got is this lousy garlic.
>>42927405Bring...I dunno. Our broom.
>>42927429Oh wow, that's a terrible assumption to make, hostility is a shitty thing to show.
>>42927405>Get something elseSwitch out of our robes and into generic clothing, with a jacket if we have one. Make sure that there's nothing that could lead back to us or Ravenclaw.Don't bring Cordelia because her buzzing will give her away, and she is unique to us and an easily identifiable familiar.
>>42927405Put Cordy back in her cage with some sugar water. Do we have any of that wiggenweld potion we learned to make? Take that.
>>42927459You currently only have lot of vials of Herbicide and one vial of Volubilis which alters the voice of the drinker.
>>42927456We've always been careful before, we haven't run into anything without thinking of a better way, and we've been careful until now about making baseless accusations or assumptions.Since you didn't try to come up with a better way to see Glenn than taking the most direct action, what else could it be than being too lazy to try to think of an alternative.
>Take Cordy or not?
>>42927489Might as well, bring each of the potions and the garlic. I don't want to bring our broom and break/lose it.
>>42927489Doesn't that only remove accents, rather than actually changing what our voice sounds like?>>42927577No.
>>42927577Leave her. We haven't trained her to do anything!
>>42927590No that was another potion
>>42927627Oh, then lets bring it along, just in case we need to use it.
You change your clothes and wear your jacket, leave Cordy behind safely put in her cage, take a vial of Volubilis and leave the common area with Tim and Anya.Anya leads the way to the Hospital Wing. After twenty minutes you manage to reach there. It is dark and cold in the castle. You, luckily didn't caught by anyone. The door is locked.
>>42927756>Anyone know alohomora?
>>42927756Pick the lock using our thin, pureblood fingers
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>42927756alohomora is in our spell book!we can try spells without practice, we just will probably fail.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>42927836First roll means shit!
>>42927756If we read far enough into our First Year spellbook, we should have read about the Unlocking Charm in Chapter 7.Though I doubt we know the proper wand movements for it.We should have waited to get properly ready for this.
>>42927836It's not in. You preferred to take the Reparo.Anya says she will try to unlock the door and that she had learned this spell before. She takes out her wand, seems really stressed, does the movement and says in a low voice, "Alohomora!" For a second nothing happens. Then you hear a click sound. The door unlocks and you enter the infirmary. It is completely dark inside except for the moonlight coming in from the windows. You check all the place and find that there are only two beds occupied. One of them a girl sleeps. The other , Glenn. He seems to be sleeping or unconscious. You examine him, he looks pale and there are red circles under his eyes. Tim says "Look!" and he finds some leaves clenched in Glenn's hand. It's the herb you gave to him. And when he takes it you also see some marks on his wrist. There are four or five strange marks, like deep wounds on his left wrist.>What to do
>>42927927Feel the marks on his wrist, wake him up if possible. I know it's a dick move to wake him up.
>>42927927Wonder out loud why nobody took the leaves from his hand before this.I mean, what kind of nurse would overlook that shit?
>>42927927Examine the marks with Anya. Then ask her to take a look at the girl, and see if she has the same wounds somewhere on her body.Check Glenn's breathing, and look around for the Nurse's desk and see if there are notes on Glenn's condition.
>>42927927Wormwood, useful in the Antidote of Common Poisons. Put that Magical Creature lore to work. What creatures find Wormwood anathema?
>>42927964Then why wake him up?Why be an asshole when there's no need to be one?
>>42927968The same one who didn't see Hermione had a paper in her hand when petrified
>>42927927use knowledge of magical creatures to determine what left the mark!
>>42927964>>42927975>>42927990>>42928054Anya checks on the girl and declares that she doesn't have any marks or anything and simply seems to be sleeping and with some fever. When you examine the marks you can clearly see they are bite marks. Two deep ones that indicates two front, larger teeth and two other smaller ones near them.Tim checks the desks and around but couldn't find anything useful on Glenn's condition. There are only a jar full of raisins next to Glenn's bed, probably brought to fed to him."I think we should go now. It seems he is out." says Tim.>What to do
>>42928204Get out of here. We can go to the library tomorrow and look up his symptoms to figure out what's wrong.
>>42928204Ask if anya can relock the door when we leave.
>>42927927sorry, I meant the Book of Spells we bought for class, but no matter.Let Glenn sleep. he needs to rest. We need to find out about overdosing on that herb. To the library!
>>42928204Go back to our rooms and try not to have left evidence of us being here
>>42928204>Make a quick sketch of the bite.>Find Hagrid
>>42928204Get out and lock the door. Research the bite later
You head out of the room while Anya is trying to lock the door. "But what was those leaves?" Tim wonders a loud. You just realize they do not know. You tell them you give Glenn this herb to help with his divination skills, you didn't know what they were for before. After locking the door Anya also tells Tim about the prophecy. It seems he is also in this now.Three of you walk towards the stairs and pass the corridor where you encountered that goblin. Anya whispers "We have to be extra quiet" pointing to a door "This is where Professor Snape stays I think." it is the room you heard someone was talking loudly that night.You continue a bit more and then just when you take the stairs they change randomly. Now you are once again in a completely foreign corridor. You can hear water dripping from somewhere. Just then you year a loud "THUCK" sound from behind, you turn around and...1/2
>>42928447You turn your heads to see a strange sight. A short creature, you can't see very well because all the torches in the corridor are not lit. No TWO creatures carrying something. When they see you they drop it with haste. One of them, now you can see a Goblin, orders the other creature in a language you don't understand. He then does some weird hand movements and the chest disappears. And quickly after this starts running away very fast.The creature starts coming towards you, now you can see it's a Doxy. >What to do
>>42928582Touch up where that chest was, invisibility hopefully
>>42928582What does our character knows about Doxy?
>>42928582Cast the Verdimillious charm on it
>>42928614You know A LOT thanks to the DADA Professors home work in the first week.You know they are also venomous. It is possible to fend off a Doxy with simple offensive spells.
>>42928582We studied them.We don't know knock back.But we do know Wingardium Leviosa!Knock one into the other!
>>42928582We don't know the Knockback jinx, so try to cast the Verdimillious charm against it.
>>42928689>You know they are venomousDoesn't sound like we know a lot
>>42928724You know if they bite you, you get poisoned and must get an antidote quickly.>>42928626>>42928702You take out your wand and cast the Verdimillious charm.Roll 1d10
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>42928872Nat 1
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>42928872
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>42928872Let's not get poisoned
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>42928872Second die, don't fuck us over.
>>42928903You aim at the Doxy and cast the charm. Weak green sparkles come out of your want, surprising the Doxy for a second but don't seem to hurt him much. Tim next to you shouts "Fumos!" suddenly a thich dark smoke starts coming out of his wand. Just in a few seconds all the corridor is full of smoke. You can't see neither Tim nor the Doxy or Anya. You hear Anya casting something but you don't understand exactly what. Complete messed up chaos in the corridor.>What to do
>>42929033prepare to cast again
>>42929033Avifors, and hope the birds flight can dissipate the smoke.Or the Verdimillious charm, but thia time for light.
>Cast Avifors>Cast Verdimillious
>>42929033It's just a doxy. It best show respect or it will see the back off your hand.>Cast Avifors, because what we need is more chaos in here?
>>42929119>>42929204>>42929252>>42929205You point your wand near the ceiling and try to cast Avifors.Roll 1d10
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>42929364CHAOS!
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>42929380
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>42929364If this doesn't work, just shout "Run" and get out of there. We got no dog in this fight.
>>42929406Running is kind of hard when we can't see where we're going and have no idea where in the castle we are.
>>42929439Don't bother me with details!Just try to avoid walls. We can ask a picture later.
>>42929396You cast your spell while at the same time Anya casts "Lumos!". Your spell hits a torch near by on the wall and turns it into a small bat. You can see the light from Anya's wand and Tim shouts "Lets get out of here!" Your bat seems to be a bit out of your control just dives near where you imagine the Doxy is. "Damned thing tried to catch me!" Tim is saying, panting while you three are running away. You are quite afraid thinking what would happen if a teacher right now found you, running around, casting spells, breaking and entering the infirmary, they would take all your points...hell they would expel you maybe! After some time of running that you think took maybe all the eternity you reach the Ravenclaw Tower safely without knowing what happened to the Doxy back there.You enter the common room, there is nobody here and the fire is almost died in the fireplace too. It is quite late. "What the hell was that thing and the other one??" Tim asks completely shaken. "What is going on here?" >Tell them about the Goblin>I have no idea>Other
>>42929515>Tell them about the Goblin
>>42929515>>Tell them about the Goblin
>>42929552>>42929567You tell them about your first encounter with the Goblin and your research on it. "I never heard of Goblins wandering in Hogwarts before" Tim says. Anya doesn't seem to know much about it but she promises to study it and find something. "He seemed to order the Doxy to attack us. Other than that I don't know what, he ran away quickly." she says. "But I have maybe an idea on Glenn... I think maybe he tried to see more with the herbs to prevent the attack on another victim in his prophecy. And maybe whatever it made him see, he went out. And then got attacked. Why would he go out otherwise with some leaves?">No something doesn't add up>I have no idea>I think you might be on to something>Other
>>42929616Express doubts."He didnt hear his own prophecy, didn't see whatever he "saw" when making it. He had to rely on someone else to tell him he even made one."
>>42929616>No something doesn't add upWhy would he take the leaves with him if he already used them to brew the needed tea?No, that doesn't make much sense.
>>42929669>>42929674>>42929706You shake your head. "No...something doesn't add up. Why would he take the leaves with him if he already brew and consumed the tea? I am not sure of this, Anya." She just shrugs. "Whatever it is it needs to wait until the morning" Tim says and heads to bed. "We shall visit Glenn tomorrow again, this time in normal hours...if they let us." says Anya, tries to smile and tells you good night. You are left alone looking outside at the dark lake that looks like a completely perfectly polished rock surface, hiding all the things underneath.You try to think about all the things but you are just too tired. You head to sleep.>Thanks everyone for joining today's quest. I'll be lurking just a bit more for chitchat.
>>42929616>No something doesn't add up
>>42929809That was fun. I'm glad we are playing a character rather than /tg/'s usual "Hurr rational justasplanned"
Out of curiosity which thread was the most fun for you so far?
>>42929891The part where we found out e are a magusjoke aside. quidditch tryouts
>>42929891The first or second one, i forget.It was enjoyable to upset anon by constantly suggesting that we become unreasonably nervous and end up making ourself feel sick.
>>42929891I liked interacting with our fellow first years.>Anya being best girl>Alba being a jock>Glenn being a loveable moron>Vladis being an insufferable moron
>>42930010Valdis is really good at astronomy
I almost caught it, dammit.
>>42930143use a timeturner
>>429298914th session.Our plans worked out, we got extra credit, and ended up being a natural at flying and quidditch against our initial wishes.
>>42930178You know what, third year that would be a GREAT thing to get access to. Heck, we might be able to jury-rig one when we get older.
>>42930309Well you know what they say about Quidditch..."it's genetic">>42930334Oh just more chaos, why not.To me the most fun aspect is that everything about the character was more or less randomly created and developed.
>>42930433>Huge nerd>Prefers non-wand studies>BOOKS>Sensible and responsible most of the time, but occasionally stubbornness gets in the way>Natural at flying, but doesn't particularly care about it>Gets roped into the team by peer pressureI love John, he's so cute.
>>42930525Well let's see how he will do against Gryffindor
>>42930525I know who we should aspire to become.
>>42930525I thought quidditch would be an unnecessary distraction from our studies. But since we are in, we better practice obsessively like for everything else.
>>42930752Haha this is awesome. Find a work for John in the Space Department in the Mysteries in Ministry.
>>42930525Maybe he can help work on the true identity of the CMB Coldspot.
