  Fetishistic Elf Carnival
Posted by: GinaGovernatore - 10-26-2018, 11:47 PM - Forum: Event Suggestions - No Replies

[Image: BWIjqHb.jpg]

When Dumbledore offered to summon the house-elf Dobby to the hearing for testimony, Fudge blatantly stated that he had no time to listen to house-elves.
"I - not - I haven't got time to listen to house-elves!"
 Showing his disregard for what he considered to be an inferior species and his overall belief that the elves are of lower status than wizards.
And with that... the following suggestion becomes plausible.

THE VERY FIRST 'ELF CARNIVAL'

(1) What is your in-game name & Steam ID? - STEAM_0:1:90890134, Gina Governatore

(2) What type of event is this? (Passive RP, Forum announced, etc.) - 
Forum announcement would be most appropriate 

(3) What are the details of this event and now will it be run? - 
In a paranoid effort to maintain public support, The Minister for Magic (who will have no direct role in this event) amends the Guidelines on house-elf welfare even though canonically, they were not even being enforced.
He also agrees to fund the 'elf carnival' in an attempt to "stimulate Wizarding Britain's economy"

The Elf Carnival is a grandiose event (grandiose meaning it has to be built well, with expensive food and fixtures) to be held at Hogwarts in which students may, for a small fee, enter a House Elf into the Carnival. More of a competition really. There will be...
-A preliminary round
-Semi-final round
-Final round
(Participation in / Viewing of the carnival is not compulsory, classes will still occur.
Certain areas of the school would need to be blocked off, however.)

Judges will determine the elves who progress to this 'final round'. The entire show is an excuse to mistreat elves for amusement. Something the majority of Wizarding Britain, especially Fudge's strongest supporters, would be on board with. Below is the event procedure, and explanation on what these 'rounds' entail, and what should come after the 'winner' is announced.

STEP 1 - Setup

The event needs to be grandiose, thus construction will be necessary. It's a carnival. It needs a stage or place for the festivities to occur. Personally, I'd recommend pressing an Astronomy Tower platform into the ground of the mid-courtyard, and subsequently blocking access to / running of Astronomy. This platform would thus, be a circular base, that may be no-collided. Use of the precision tool and advanced duplicator would make the introduction of this stage possible. 

A table or area for Judges would also need to be constructed, but plenty of room must exist for the elves to complete the (3) rounds.
The stage would have to be sealed with invisible props to prevent students from barging in OR, all entrances into the courtyard may be blocked except for one which takes students upwards onto the little--- 'roof' areas of the courtyard. Here it may be easier to construct seating and prevent interruptions.


Optional - A special seating area for The Minister for Magic, to remind students he, not Dumbledore, is letting this happen

STEP 2 - The Rounds.

Round 1 : Preliminary
House Elves are brought forward (3 at a time) and told to sit on chairs, which must be positioned close enough to the audience so that they may hear the elves.
The three elves are told to stare at a basket of expensive, fine, luxurious linens 
(*A prop exists, a basket filled with clothing).
The linens are then incinerated in front of them (Incendio)
Judges will determine which (one) of the three elves had the most exquisite reaction.
This elf will make it to the next round.

Round 2 : Semi-final round
Remaining elves are put on stage and forced to 'dance'. That is to say, the Judges will get up from their seats, stand atop their table (or some other tall platform, possibly a marble pillar), and start firing Verdimillious at the Elves. Once the Judges are happy with the pool of elves which remain, the round concludes.

Round 3 : Final round
The remaining elves are pitted against one another, given claws, and made to fight to the death.
The one remaining victor is awarded... clothes. The elf is given freedom.

STEP 3 - Elf Uprising (Optional)

GMs may choose to have the elves 'rise up' after the competition has ended, or otherwise just let the oppression continue. Elf Lives don't matter.

(4) What problems could arise and how could they be remedied? -
Dumbledores Office + Astronomy Tower would need to be blocked off to prevent people from being teleported onto the stage.
Any spawns inside these two areas would need to be changed.

Astronomy is blocked off, therefore Astronomy must not be allowed to run as students will be unable to enter the classroom.

Students protest the event in the masses = Respond with brutal suppression. Bring all prefects, model them into Aurors, and order them to give detention to protestors. Trusted prefects may even be given blue stun sticks to assault students who protest, which would act as a general deterrence. This solution not only deters protests but also gives the school a much more militarized feel, which is appropriate given the grandiose nature of this event.

  [@Community] Staff and Player Rule Discontinuity
Posted by: Michael Classicius - 10-26-2018, 03:42 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (21)

For sometime, we, the staff team, have been given several repeating points of criticism from the community that I believe it's time to touch upon. A common point is how certain staff members may punish for one rule break while others may not. To address this: sometimes a staff member may not be aware of the rule in the first place. We're all human so it's no surprise that rules may get confused or forgotten -- they change often so there's that too.

In our Saturday and Sunday meetings, we have a section dedication to address this issue. But here's the issue, the only place that the correction is listed is under our meeting notes, which can be hard to find if the question was asked several weeks ago. My idea that I am acting upon is creating a FAQ page that contains common rules that are asked often. The bright side to this is that rules getting passed by mouth can easily be checked by simply checking this list. Astro, our Server Manager, will input the correct form so we all have something to back us up.

My question to you is this: what are some common rules that you don't understand or are confused about? Are there any instances you avoid because you don't want to get in trouble for a rule that you don't know? Anything to comment -- suggestions, feedback, etc.

*if you don't feel comfortable posting, please pm me so I may post it for you anonymously*

**please remain civil**

Lightbulb Just a couple suggestions to give new life to the RP.
Posted by: ReOceano - 10-26-2018, 09:33 AM - Forum: Denied Suggestions - Replies (6)

N.B: Sorry for the bad english :C

(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID? - In-game name: Antonio Oceano, Steam ID: reoceano1

(2) What is your suggestion? - Well I do have just a couple suggestions... I'll be starting with:
2.1) MORE EVENTS:
These days the server is kind of dead, I mean, i played this HogwartsRP server for almost 2 months like 5-6 months ago (when there were 70-80 players online most of the times), then uninstalled gmod and now that i re-started playing all I can see is like 30-40 players at all the hours
So my suggestion is to do more events, inspired from the real Harry Potter's story for example. It would be really good if you could make like a seasonal "Tri-wizard tournament" (Meant not with other schools, because it's not possible, but with the Hogwarts houses [Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff], so it could be an "internal" Four-wizard tournament) where the house which wins the tournament, gets a "reward" (that could be a stupid thing like a """firework""" spell or stuff like this.
C'mon, making a maze is not that difficult, it could be really fun, and why don't you give a purpose to the "Ascendio" spell by creating the underwater competition where player from each house have to find something like a Treasure Hunt? These are just a couple suggestions about the events you could create/make to let people have fun

2.2) GIVE GALLEONS A PURPOSE:
Let's talk about this: Galleons are useless. Why don't we give a purpose to them? For example. You could make a shop where player can buy Skins, clothes, effects, hats, dances, spells, pets or maybe WANDS!!! I'd like to pay to get some wand skins. That would finally give a purpose to Galleons.

2.3) CREATE A "WORKING" QUIDDITCH (idk if it's possible):
But i suggest it anyway. Quidditch could be another type of event that could involve players and let them have fun. It would only require an automated plugin which creates the Tournament (that could last 20-30 minutes, or 2-3 class periods) and the Teams from each house, with the same rules of the real quidditch game. Winners get Galleons (which would be useful to buy the Skins, effects, etc, mentioned in (2.2)

2.3) 2 MORE SPELLS: RIDDIKULUS (CHARMS) AND PERICULUM (CHARMS):
There is no actual use for these spells, but that could be another adding, they're not even that difficult to create i think. The first one could be thrown to a player and make it disguise in a monster or stuff like that for 10-15 seconds, the second one it's just as simple as the Firecracker Charm, it would cause no damage, just a long-range red firework

2.4) ADD LEADERBOARDS:
That would give another touch of competition to the roleplay. Just add leaderbords on DF or LF Kills, on Galleons, on Hours played or similiar stuff.

2.5) MORE PVP:
Yeah, I know, freespelling is quite a problem already, and there are already the fights at the QP involving LF and DF and the Duelling Club. But when there are no events, there should be a "PvP area" where even 1st/2nd year students could try using their Verdimillious or Expelliarmus spells against other people.
I know even that is a Roleplay but in my opinion there are not enough moments to practice fight spells. on a "3 hours of playing" period (doing an example), if you don't count the times that you go against the rules (Freespelling) there are only 10-20 minutes where you can actually use your fight spells. This is too little in my opinion...

2.6) ENLARGE THE MAP:
You should enlarge the map, here are my suggestions:
2.6.1) Dark Forest:
Enlarge it. Place more trees and enlarge the walkable area, place abandoned Bungalows and other scary stuff.
2.6.2) Lake:
Yes. Make the lake where Hogwarts school is placed on fully explorable! Even underwater! Remove the invisible borders and make the lake fully explorable, by creating Natural borders such as Mountains (that wouldn't require a big texture amount) like in the Film. You could place a lot of Caves underwater or Sea weeds where players could go in the Free time periods! This would let the lake be prepared for the competitions of the Tri/Four-Wizard tournament mentioned in (2.1) and also give another purpose to the Ascendio spell mentioned in (2.1).
N.B: By enlarging the lake area you could create a new job (for VIP even if it goes against me because i'm not VIP): the Mermaid. it would be great! The mermaid should go really fast underwater but would not go out of the lake. Weapon? Trident.
This would also create another PVP situation!
If players goes inside the lake, the Mermaid would be allowed to attack them!
Plus, you could do another thing. Aguamenti out of water deals 1 damage, but underwater it deals 30-40 damage!
2.6.3) The chamber of secrets:
Just create a secret area in the school: The chamber of secrets. Explorable only during events
Another Event Idea! Admins or players could play as the Basilisk (new special job) which has 1000-2000 Health points and a Venom Spit as weapon, and other players would have to kill the basilisk by using spells! (By doing this you would have created another event and made the game funnier). It's not that difficult, just a big wide area made of bricks material under the map reachable by the bathrooms (opened only during the event)

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition:? - In the long-run the HogwartsRP played like that could become boring. This is the main reason why i stopped playing for 5-6 months. At some points I was doing the same stuff, everyday.

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - 
(2.2) Giving galleons a purpose could make people greedy. There would be less professors because of the price of homework/spells given to the students because even professors would save Galleons to buy skins and stuff. This could be solved by letting professors give the homeworks/spells for free to students (C'mon there is no point in that, should a professor pay to give Homeworks to his students??)

(2.5) If you are thinking "This adding would let the Roleplay become a Team Deathmatch server" well, i don't think so. I'm not saying that at any time students should be allowed to use fighting spells and to kill people, there would still be classes to be respected and most importantly the server rules. I'm just saying, there should be just a little more PvP.

(2.6) "This would make the server lag!": I'm not saying "make Hogwarts open world". If you think about it would not requires a big amount of textures or space.. And if it's not possible to create all of this stuff i mentioned in this point, well just create at least one!

See you In-Game!

  Killing Damages The Soul
Posted by: Jim Lahey - 10-25-2018, 01:47 PM - Forum: Denied Suggestions - Replies (3)

(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID? - $STEAMID$ Bobby McFattycakes - Cant remember STEAMID havent logged on in a while.

(2) What is your suggestion? - In Harry Potter Lore is is revealed that killing has a damaging effect on wizards, via their souls.  *Unless you're a Weasly ginger and have no soul anyways MUA HA HA*. Anyways, this suggestion is to implement a temporary debuff to players light or dark who kill for any reason.  Maybe the debuff reduces their maximum HP by a certain amount per kill. 

(2.5) Your suggestion in action: During lockdown, a player uses a spell to kill a student.  He has 10% subtracted from his total HP meaning that his maximum HP is now 90 instead of 100 until the player dies.  Unless you are Voldemort because his soul is scattered into his Horcruxes.  However you would not be killed directly by the stacking debuff maybe the lowest your HP could go down to is 30 total.

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition:? - It would add more need for proper strategy in lockdown battles and events, it would actually add weight to killing and would give a benefit to resorting to non-lethal options to dealing with dark forces.   

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - The Weasleys without souls would be overpowered, players could just suicide to lose the debuff.  But I suppose it would shake things up as well.  People don't like change, change scares people.  But I feel like in order to bring people back change is needed.

**PS. I feel like this could be modified to only apply to the killing curse, to force dark forces to rely on spells other than Avada to get their kills.  Voldemort would actually have to use damaging spells instead of avada.  But I want to leave that up to debate in the thread. Contribute something when voting, state why or why not.  NO HALF ASSED VOTES! Lets get a nice grown up discussion going.
