Following a chilly Halloween, November has landed with some decidedly harsh weather. Winter is here early and it looks like it is going to stay. With unusually heavy snows buffeting the isles, life has slowed to a crawl. It is all anyone can do to keep warm, and it is even worse for those without a home as the Hogsmeade refugees at Hogwarts still can’t go home—and how can the town hope to be rebuilt when it is buried in snow? Of course things must get done, but what sort of mischief can our enemies get up to when everyone is hiding inside?
Last but not least, here are some prompts for this month!

BERTIE BOTTS EVERY FLAVOUR BEANS
Here at Infinite Arms, we believe that everyone should have a fair shot at winning site awards. Just because your character isn't a super popular canon, or you're part of a small subplot, does not mean that your contributions are not being noted and appreciated! So, when we started to entertain the idea of introducing awards, we knew right away that we were not going to over-done "Of the Month" route.
So today, we are happy to introduce the secret project we have been slaving over... the Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans. We have taken the list of flavours from Bertie Bott's - and added some of our own here and there - to compile a huge list of beans/awards that we can give out. Throughout each in-character month, the staff will be keeping an eye on your characters and plots to see how things are progressing. We will then award specific beans to people based on their accomplishments. Some will be quite tricky to earn, while others may be quite simple.
But, here is the catch.
We will not be publishing the master bean list! It is kept in the staff forum under lock and key, making each award a surprise! So, not only are you going to get super fun, surprise awards... but you will be able to show them off! Beans that you have earned will be shown underneath your character's avatar. Each bean has been painstakingly brought to life by our very own Rachel! All you will have to do is hover over your bean, and you will be able to see it's name.
Each month we will also have a featured bean that can only be earned during that IC month. Since those beans will be "limited edition" we are going to tell you our requirements for earning them. Once the month has changed, that limited edition bean will be locked away, so be on the look out!
And remember, if you think we've missed you for a bean don't be afraid to let us know and we'll get that for you ASAP.
