    Mini Plots are events that your character can get involved in all around the world. Some are school specific, and others are for all of the players to get involved in. Details are left open to interpretation so you can use your imagination to make it your own! Post [Mini Plot] in your thread title and post the thread link here! FPP points and other prizes will be given to drivers who participate.

    After yet another year of tragedy, Hogwarts looks forward to a term with new beginnings. The Beginning of Term Feast this year is meant to encourage camaraderie, as students are allowed to sit with friends of any house as opposed to separated by House tables. The Dome and Gauntlet, which had been the source of so much sorry last year, seems to have used their last bits of sentience and magic to atone for the deaths and destruction. The Gauntlet doors remain in the Great Hall, which now lead a lovely surprise. Even the Great Hall has been refurbished and redecorated to promote inter-House cooperation and a sense of renewal. The unveilings will take place right after the BoT Feast.

    School is back in session, but it's not business as usual at Beauxbatons. At the Beginning of Term Feast, a mysterious earthquake shakes the school. Though Madame Maxime quietly excuses herself to investigate the disturbance, her lack of answers for the students and staff may lead to unauthorized investigations of the disruption. Students and faculty are welcome to explore the grounds and school, where trees have fallen and cracks have appeared in the ground and exterior walls. What caused these damages to the grounds, why is Madame Maxime keeping details of the incident so close to her chest, and is there a chance it could happen again?

    This term will begin again with the celebration of Friendship Day! On the first weekend of the school year, students can gather around the grounds and halls for many activities ranging from: picnics, three-legged races, friendship bracelet making, and much more! To help encourage new friendships, some of the activities are design to have randomized pairs, though others are perfect for those who are already the best of friends. As usual, the biggest draw of Friendship Day is the gift room, an area where students can receive a gift after donating something of their own that they treasure. At the conclusion of the celebrations there is a hike toward the observatory with a party, complete with bonfires, s'mores, and scary ghost stories.

    Sevastyan Nikolayevich Yeshevsky has been named the new Headmaster of Durmstrang after the incidents revolving Anastasiya Vulchanova at the end of last term. A new reign has begun at Durmstrang, but it has everyone wondering what kind of new era he will be ushering in. Join the new headmaster in the first day feast in the Grand Hall and see what secrets and surprises he has in store for his students.

    Students and staff are returning for the first time in over a year. While house elves maintained the building during the year, it's still obvious that the school has been uninhabited for some time. In an effort to get over past events at Durmstrang and to value Koldovstoretz as a educational establishment students and staff alike are supposed to help renovate and redecorate the school. In the course of this new opening of the school staff members are also available for any students who want to talk. There are offerings for groups and single students alike. Furthermore students are encouraged to hang something personal (a photo, written memory or charmed item) from the branches of the big tree in the central cavern. If that is done IC with a description of the item house points will be awarded.

    It's time for the annual Test of Courage! The only event of the year where activities begin after curfew, the night starts off with second rank students pairing off with anyone they choose, after which they'll be led to the grounds near the campus. The goal of the Kimodameshi is fairly simple– navigate a course through the woods that the first rank students have laid out, with the objective of retrieving a single object that was previously hidden. Each pair will get to choose between two “fates” at the first junction, represented by two first rank students, and they can be either the “tenshi” (angel) or the “akuma” (devil). The older students will then in turn use spells to either guide their way or scare them.

    Worldwide/Adult Plot:
    In the aftermath of the great zoo escape of Nigeria, the nation's beloved Rompo, Snuggles, has unfortunately passed away. The beloved Rompo tragically perished during the mass break out of animals at the Nigerian Zoo last season. Snuggles, curious as ever, wandered out of her magically heated paddock and into the savanna and was unfortunately lost in the night due to hypothermia. To honour the importance of protection of magical creatures and its special place in people's hearts, the African Ministry of Magic is throwing a gala/fundraiser in remembrance of Snuggles. Special invites have been sent out to Ministry employees across the globe, Magizoologists and researchers, as well as the generally rich and famous to drum up awareness for the event. There is also a public auction of several rare and prized items donated to raise funds for the evening.
