Greetings Apprentices and Magisters alike,
I hope that you are all staying warm and Wizardly this winter season.
I would like to let everyone know that we will be moving to the New forums as the Main School Forums on Jan 1st 2020.
A public announcement of this will be made during the Candle -Side chat later today (the 7th) through Facebook, although I wanted to let you here know what was happening first.
Please ensure that your new Forum Profile is up to date, a Bio is added, and that your profile picture is uploaded. If you're having troubles with creating an account, Click the "First time on the New forums?" button, located at the top of every forum page in white text.
These Forum accounts are approved every hour or so, and so I ask for your patience during this time of transition should account approval take a little longer than you would wish.
I'm excited to share in this new adventure with you all and I look forward to a great 2020!
Bright Blessings,
Provost Nicholas Kingsley
Assistant to the Headmaster

Hear ye from the prefect office of the Stones lodge. I am coming forth to inform you of two wonderful challenges for mega merits. The first challenge is a request for services in mapmaking. The map to be made is the virtual campus. If you put forth an effort, you will receive a merit; if your map is deemed the
most efficient, you will receive 10 merits. The second challenge is an essay. The subject of this essay is the importance of wizardry in today’s world. The essay deemed the most knowledgeable, you will receive 5 merits and a special hazel wand made by Professor Kingsley.
Let us go forth into a day of mapmaking and essay writing. But we shall not abandon the other challenges that have been placed by other departments. There is a challenge for the department of Divination and the department of Psychic Arts. The lodge specific challenge is one of fascination,
literally. If you find your curiosity peaked by this fascination, roll your way to the forums and check it out.

It is also with much excitement that I announce the return of the Rolling Stone Award! The requirements will be the same as before. There is a post on the forums regarding this.


Remember: a rolling stone gathers no moss!

Calling All Flames, A message from the Flames Lodge Prefect:


July is a pivotal time for the Lodges and the Lodge Cup! Right now, the Lodges are battling for 1st place and our lodge needs your help!

Merits are where this lodge needs the most support! We are sitting at half the merits of the rest of the lodges, but we have a chance! The school has two Mega-Merit Challenges currently running! The first is drawing a map of the vGSW campus! Participation gets you 1 merit and the winner of this gets 10 merits! The second challenge, an essay on the importance of Wizardry, also provides 1 merit for participating, 5 merits for two runners-up places, and first place gets 5 merits AND a hand-crafted wand crafted by Professor Kingsley! That is a total of 25 merits (not including all participations) if we swept the challenges! This would absolutely close the gap!

We have 4 lodge challenges to engage with! Additionally, the Lodge is working towards the LUMOS, and the requirements have been posted in the forums! Keep working on those requirements! We are getting there, but need your help! The TORCH award requirements are up as well, and those are individual-based awards, involving things from class completion to forum participation!

We’ve got this Flames! 

Bring the Fire!

A Message From the Wind's Lodge Prefect


Hello my fellow winds! I have some exciting opportunities to share with you! Professor Kingsley has offered not one, but TWO, exciting mega-merit challenges that could prove to be game-changers in the school’s Lodge Cup competition!!The first opportunity requires you to draw a map of the Second Life Campus. It’s a great way to familiarize yourself with the campus. All entrants receive a merit for participation and if you win you will earn 10 merits! The second contest challenges you to write an essay or story of a minimum of 2000 words telling why wizardry is important in today’s world. Again, all participants receive a merit. There will be two runners-up who receive 5 merits each. The winner will receive 5 merits PLUS a hazel wand made by Prof. Kinsgley himself! Just imagine it… if we represent well, all three top prizes could potentially go to one Lodge, *OURS*… combined with the map challenge, that could be 25 merits! That could greatly increase our standing in the Lodge Cup competition.And if that isn’t enough….The members of the Lodge that wins the Cup this term will receive a one month 15% discount at Magick Alley!But wait! There’s more!

We have two lodge specific awards, the Golden Wand award for earning the most academic credits in the term, and the Griffin award for earning the most merits. A stellar showing in these mega-merit challenges could earn you having your name permanently etched on our Lodge Page as a winner of the Griffin award….plus you will receive a certificate declaring that you have earned this designation from me. Don’t forget about our monthly lodge merit challenges and departmental challenges. There is no shortage of opportunities to show the other lodges that the element of air is not to be underestimated. Together we make a hurricane. ~Prefect Ombra
