Alright so it's not officially September yet but it's too early in the morning for me to come up with catchy news titles. There's been a whole lot of activity community-wide that everyone needs to take a minute to recognize, so dig in:
- Three new staff have been brought on board: OneManGunn (Developer), _Kicker19_ (Designer), and mothums (Designer). Please welcome them and make them feel at home...or they'll probably make your life miserable.
- Minigames server got a complete rehaul these past couple of weeks. Two new minigames have been added: WizDrop and WizBuild. Wizdrop is a magical dropper game where the first to reach the bottom wins. WizBuild is a build competition game where players vote on each others build at the end. Whichever game gets the most attention I'll probably expand on more (ex: WizBuild has potential for team-building). Minigames is currently whitelisted for last minute reward tweaking but it'll be up in a few hours for public testing.
- Gringotts galleon storage system is getting removed at the end of September. We've got other plans for players to make money, but due to its only use of interest gaining we decided to nix it for now. We will continue to sell physical vaults for item storage. Get your galleons out now so you won't have to worry about them getting erased when the system is gone. You've been warned.
- Three semi-new players added to DA Members: Edralumos, miningdeep, and Elliiee. Congratulations!
- Two semi-new players added to Head Boy/Girl: Elliiee (Head Girl, Ravenclaw) and Erdalumos (Head Boy, Gryffindor)
- One semi-new player added to Wizengamot: _Cranium_
- Staff page on website has been updated recently to include DA Members/Heads/Wizengamot
- Wiltshire is getting a rennovation by the Designer team which includes a secret passage
- Quest Writer Club/Chat are finishing up on the CoS quest line for 1.11, stay tuned for more info
- We will be adding an official 'Player Voted Tags' thread soon. Players will be able to post tag suggestions and vote on which gets created at the end of each month
- Lots of daily internal server changes that I could honestly list here but can all be found on the server changelog, click here
Have fun, enjoy the server, and don't cry too much over interest.
