International Outpost
The International Outpost has been created directly to the north of the small village of Irvingly. A path has been created between the two for easier travel. It is about a days walk, however a carriage line has been set up for those who can afford it to minimize travel times. Those who are able also have the option to fly from Irvingly to the Outpost or apparate. Irvingly's law against public magic must be observed by all travelers. A prairie field has been cleared. Tents have been erected for the international players and spectators, segregated into sections by country. The tents belonging to the teams are notably marked by having their country's flag printed on the side, though the spectators' tents are varied in both size and style.

The Market
Vendors from countries worldwide have set up shop in the clearing of a meadow. Placed conveniently between the pitch and the international outpost, the market is a sight to behold. Exotic pets, alcohol tents, small circus acts, quidditch suppliers and more can be purchased here. Certain corners are more moral than others and in the evenings, it's generally best for children and proper ladies to stay home.

The World Cup Quidditch Pitch
The StandsNewly built and quite similar in design to the Hogwarts Quidditch Pitch, the World Cup Pitch is made from the wood of the trees of Hawthorne Hollow and is the largest pitch in Britain. The freshness of the pine clings heavily to the air. Relatively quiet and plain when not in use, during games banners of the teams playing are scattered everywhere and the noise of the crowd is nearly deafening. The stands that surround the pitch are so tall that they are rumored to be prone to lightning strikes. Private boxes are located at the perfect height for those lucky enough to have them, while those with lesser money also get to see less action in the lower section of the stands.

Hogsmeade Station
The only train station that travels to and from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Hogsmeade Station is your one-stop-shop for all transportation needs. Almost kitschy in atmosphere, the station is made of big, melodramatic archways and high, vaulted ceilings that serve little purpose. The colors tend to be equally gaudy, and artwork, upholstery, trains, and floor tiles range in color from royal purple to neon orange. A handful of restaurants and giftshops can also be found within.

Wellingtonshire
Wellingtonshire Area ClubsA cut above all of the rest, Wellingtonshire is the residential lane for those of considerable means. Though the houses are tightly compacted and built somewhat like miner's homes, the outer facades are deceiving. Enchanted to hold more than they ought, the homes of Wellingtonshire are exceptionally and intimidatingly grand on the inside, and few pedestrians litter the immaculately kept streets for fear of being thought of as potential thieves.

Padmore Park
A beautiful and colorful garden has been carefully cultivated over the spring and is now ready for summer use. It is large but still manages to be cozy. The green leafage is spread all around with bright and colorful flowers sprinkled thickly throughout. Among the sprawling grass and a shady copse of twisted trees are paved paths, perfect for walking or bicycling. Different benches are scattered about, some shaded some in the sun, for those who merely want to rest. The lawn is open enough to offer a game of croquet or lawn tennis, or even play host to a picnic. A large pond can be found off to one side of the garden, an inlet from the Black Lake. Several charmingly decorated boats are enchanted to give lazy and gentle rides around the pond, though the spells are not strong enough to resist the tampering from troublemakers. As far as anyone knows, there aren't any creatures that live in the lake aside from a couple of gentle giant goldfish. Several families of ducks have decided to make the place their home, as have dozens of songbirds. In the evenings, the park is lit up by golden orbs that levitate above the walking paths. They have been known to become attached to a person and to try to follow them home, so keep an eye out. A person of any class is welcome here, though most stick to their own social circles and ignore the rest.

Bartonburg
Bartonburg Area ClubsHome of the middle class, the Bartonburg District is a modest but extremely dense bit of Hogsmeade, holding more than half of its inhabitants in a series of townhouses that all interconnect in various, confusing ways. Homes are known to be stacked aslant on top of one another, though naturally the magic ingrained into the architecture makes the homes of the Bartonburg District sturdy, cozy, and just big enough for your average family.

The Slums
The Slums are just as glamorous as they sound. Built amidst a din of less than savory people and street purveyors, The Slums are where the lowest class dwells. Small, squat, shack-lack buildings line the streets, which are littered with garbage and muck. The increasingly popular brothel, Maison de Vénus, is tucked away on one of the cramped and dirty side streets. Though during the day The Slums are unpleasant, it's the night which really gives the area a bad name — even those who live here are rarely seen outdoors after nightfall, as the shadiest of characters can be found in every nook and cranny.

Asphodel Cemetery
Named for the asphodel flowers that grow wild around the tombstones, Asphodel Cemetery is a quiet and mysterious place when the sun is shining. In the evening, it's been rumored to be haunted by the most terrifying ghosts who howl and whine throughout the late hours. Those who visit at night have been said to have never been the same - some say cursed, some say terrified into craziness and others say it's unexplainable. It is tucked away on a hill that overlooks the village of Hogsmeade. The only way to reach it is by following winding paths through the village that lead out to the slums and slightly through the Forbidden Forest. The graves are new, with the oldest being only a few years old.

Gate of Hogwarts
Locked for most of the school year, the great iron great rises upwards as far as the eye can see. It can only be opened by the Headmaster himself and separates the grounds of the school from the city of Hogsmeade.

The Black Lake
Cold and mysterious, the Black Lake is exactly the way it sounds - the depths in the middle of the lake are so deep that the water takes on a blackish hue. However, the closer to shore it becomes the bluer the water appears. It is rumored that a mercolony has been established underneath the depths.

The Forbidden Forest
Thick and dark, the Forbidden Forest offers many dangers for those adventurous enough to breech its borders. Magical creatures of all kinds call the forest home, though not all are friendly. Please note that Hogwarts students are strictly forbidden from entering the forest, and risk punishment from the Headmaster. Enter the forest at your own risk.

Outside the Castle
QUIDDITCH PITCHAs wide and varied as the rooms of the school itself, the school grounds extend for what seems like eternity. However, there are certain landmarks students learn to identify as the brink of permissible exploration. Overall, the grounds are beautiful, even with its occasionally violently vile quirks.

The Great Hall
When not being used for meals — The Great Hall is full around breakfast, lunch, and dinner, during which lavish meals are provided for students and staff alike — the hall is a common place for students to meet in order to talk, study, and generally mingle, especially during the colder, soggier months. The room is amorphous in appearance: the ceiling is alternately starlit, filled by floating candles, garnished with garishly opulent colors, or decorated for the holidays. The tapestries on the walls likewise change depending on the headmaster's mood. The only solid features are the four tables for the four houses, the staff table at the front of the room, and the headmaster's podium.

Classrooms
The classrooms of Hogwarts come in all shapes and sizes, generally dependent upon the Professor's preference. Large and spartan; small and cozy; midsized and eccentric — like most things at the school, every aspect of every room is exceptionally protean, and given to change at any moment. The Headmaster and Professors' offices, respectively, can also be located here.

The Library
Set on the second floor of the castle, there are several large floor-to-ceiling windows that give a serene view of the lake and forest below. There tens of thousands of books on tens and thousands of shelves that cover every subject imaginable. Near the back of the library is the Restricted Section, which is roped off in order to discourage wanderers. A student must have a note from a teacher in order to be given permission to enter. There are intricately carved wooden tables scattered about the large room that are perfect for studying.

Corridors
Hospital WingThe corridors of Hogwarts are just as varied as the classrooms - some are wide, some narrow, some tall, some you have to duck in order to pass through and some seem to shift direction as you pass by. They lead to the different rooms in the castle, whilst some lead to nothing at all.

Gryffindor Common Room
Located on the seventh floor, Gryffindor tower is a tall and imposing section of the castle. The entrance is hidden behind a painting of the Fat Lady, who often entertains herself by forcing students to listen to her sing horribly off-key before admitting them. Once she does decide to swing open, a round opening in the wall is revealed. The room is decorated with comfortable arm chairs, sofas, tables and a fireplace. It is a common hang out place for Gryffindors. Two staircases lead in opposite directions on one end of the room, with one leading to the girls' dormitory and the other leading to the boys'. Should a boy decide to try and climb the girls' staircase, it will set off a wailing klaxon charm and transfigure into a staircase - sending the boy down to the bottom with a noisy and embarrassing fanfare.

Hufflepuff Common Room
The Hufflepuff Common Room can be found by entering a door to the right of the main staircase in the entrance hall and descending a flight of stairs. It is located near the kitchens and is hidden behind a still life painting. Hufflepuff pride is evident in the cheery shades of yellow strewn about in different hangings and furniture. The chairs are squashy and comfortable with tables and sofas scattered about. A fireplace is located to one side of the room. On either side of the fireplace are two tunnels that end in perfectly rounded doors - one leads to the girls' dormitory while the other leads to the boys'.

Ravenclaw Common Room
Ravenclaw tower is located on the west side of the castle. The entrance is reached by climbing a tightly winding spiral staircase that starts on the fifth floor. The door is guarded by a bronze knocker in the shape of an eagle. Rather than ask a password like the other common room guardians, the eagle asks a question. Once answered correctly, he will allow entrance and swing the door open. The common room is decorated in shades of navy and bronze, with armchairs and sofas as well as tables and bookcases neatly placed about. The room is wide and airy. A starry cushy rug is set near the fireplace while the ceiling of the room is painted with matching stars. The windows are arched and give a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. On the other side of the entrance is a door that leads to the dormitories. Next to it is a white marble life-sized statue of Helena Ravenclaw, complete with her diadem.

Slytherin Common Room
Accessed through a tunnel that leads to underneath the Black Lake, the Slytherin common room is dark and cold. It is dungeon like in appearance, with low ceilings, greenish lamps and furniture and skulls everywhere. Candles sit on almost every surface, their wax having dripped into piles underneath them. The fireplace is lit with a blue-green flame, though it doesn't offer much warmth. A small iced over pool is located to one side of the room. If a student is lucky, they could catch a glimpse of a mermaid. A bit farther from the pond is a pair of tunnels that lead to the girls' and boys' dormitories.

Hawthorne Hollow
Ivana Memorial AsylumThe area around Irvingly is filled with a lush forest where much wildlife dwells. Set about a mile from the edge of the city is Lake Greer, a lake nearly the same size as the town itself. As far as anyone knows, it holds freshwater fish of the non magical variety. The hollow offers room to hunt, forage and explore. Meadows are woven in and out of it at random. The northwest section possesses steep hills and small mountains that are accompanied by valleys and creeks throughout.

Swallowbury District
The north side of Irvingly is decidedly different than the south. While the muggles had solid homes built for them, the magical residents were left to their own devices when it came to shelter. Homes of different styles and skill levels have been erected. Magic is not allowed on the streets even in the north side, so wizards have to be careful to keep such things inside the privacy of their homes.

Salem Square
CasinoMagical Liaison OfficeChance L'AmourThe commercial district of Salem Square lies in the very heart of Irvingly. The brand new casino as well as the home and office of the Magical Liaison is set at the very center, a perfect location for neutrality between the two communities in an attempt to peacefully unite them. There is a great open space surrounding these two buildings, as there are hopes that shops and other business will be built there.

Dovecote District
Originally made of poorly built ramshackle huts, the south side of Irvingly has since been remade into neat and organized red brick and stone two story homes that are identical in appearance. The muggles tend to stick to this side of the town in order to avoid running into the magic folk.

London
Predominantly consisting of muggles, wizarding families must be sure to keep themselves hidden while in London. The only place safe from prying eyes is Diagon Alley, the wizard shopping center. Most stores however, have picked up and moved to Hogsmeade to get better business. The alley is quiet and dark, with most shops boarded up.
