Following a cold and snowy November, the last month of the year is upon us. The Christmas holidays are approaching, and with Hogsmeade remaining closed, people are scrambling to find the perfect gifts for those important people in their lives in other places. Diagon Alley remains croweded at any time that the shops are open, and a Goblin Market has popped up in Wales for the season. It's a perfect opportunity to take care of that shopping before it's too late. It's a perfect time of year to begin to put the past behind us and look forward to the future. Some may be apprehensive, but everyone has the same question: what will the new year bring?

winter is coming
Welcome to Novemeber! Things are about to get a lot colder.
In a spot of unseasonable sever weather, a cold snap has gripped the country and Wizarding and muggle kind alike. With temperatures dipping below freezing at night and snow from a blizzard piling up, the wizarding world has all but frozen over as everyone tries and cope with winter weather, especially when it came a month early. Stay tuned to the Wizarding Wireless Network for weather reports.
On a related note, everybody has different ways to defrost and the weather can provide excellent cover for some less-than-savory deeds. Check out this month's EVENT PLOTTER for ideas on how characters from each member group might be dealing with the cold and plot out your sinster side jobs, snowman building contests, and emergency supply scares there. Please mark all threads as [BLIZZARD] to distinguish from other threads about the site.
Recently, over a dozen muggles went missing from a Muggle street, thought to be the work of dark forces operating under the cover of the recent weather. But reports are scarce as to what actually went on there. It's the first of many strange occurrences expected from this cold snap, but it also begs the question - after Hogsmeade and this, where are they going to strike next? Was this a test for Wizarding-residential area attacks or something else?
And speaking of Hogsmeade, how are the residents of the village recovering from their recent displacement? According to Rita Skeeter - who we may or may not wish to believe - it could be going a lot better for them. And with the recent change in the weather, all efforts to recover anything from the village and rebuild plans have been put on indefinite hold. They might never be going back home. Read all about it in this week's issue of Witch Weekly.
Now, time for a couple out-of-character notes.
New to the NPC scene this month is Minister for Magic, Millicent Bagnold. Famous Ravenclaw Minister known for coming to power a the height of the First Wizarding War and asserting that wizards have an "inalienable right to party" after the fall of Lord Voldemort (if she can make it that long...).
We've updated the site PLOT and cleaned up some of the other extra information threads, so be sure to check that out as well.
