Everything should be updated. Please make sure everything is correct for your characters as well as double checking so that you don't have any characters in the same group. Staff should also make sure that their characters aren't paired with any other staff members' characters.

EDIT:
Also I've just realized that I haven't mentioned how this will work exactly. It's fashioned after the Oregon Trail Game. For those who haven't played, you can read more about it here.

The Hogsmeade Trail (thanks to Miss Olive for the name) is fashioned the same way as the game. Group members will be given a number of choices throughout the exploration that will direct them to certain discoverable areas. Some choices will yield certain results, while others while allow other prompts to pop up. These prompts will be controlled by the staff. Group members will need to discuss their options and come to a decision (perhaps by taking a vote if need be) so that the adventure can continue on. Not every group will have the same adventure (unless they all make the same decisions, which would be rare) and not every group is going to make it until the very end.

Sorry for all the questions lol

In character lobbying to get needed members (a healer would be a really good thing to have) to join their group and group switching all the way up until the take off point (which is in the middle of May) is completely allowed.

As soon as your character is added to the list by staff, you can assume that they have received an owl in character informing them that their name has been drawn and that they need to report to the Ministry within three days to confirm that they have received it.


Technically, the plot has started now. The exploring will begin in the middle of May. It's up to the characters and players of how they want to get their groups prepared.

What would this letter say? Could we maybe have a mock-up, addressed to "Dear Sir" or some such, so that I know how to react IC?

Are we supposed to actually thread out our characters reporting to the ministry as soon as we get placed into a group? Or are we under the assumption it's going to happen?

To: (Characters name and address here)

Greeting:
You are hereby ordered for induction into the Exporation Groups of Hogsmeade Village and to report at The Ministry of Magic, Hogsmeade Division, High Street in three days by no later than five o'clock PM. Those who do not comply will bring upon themselves the Irreversable curse.

(Signature of Ministry Member here)

Military drafts in real life were pretty blunt and to the point. I fashioned this after one of those.


QUOTE

They'd have to be really tricky about doing it, since the Ministry is going to be keeping close tabs on all of the groups. I also don't really see the point of being a stowaway, unless they're an adreneline junkie that wants an adventure. Stowaways wouldn't be given the award money or land.

QUOTE

We don't have any IC character actually in charge of the draft currently, we're just using NPCs, so I would say just assume it's going to happen, unless you just want a read-only thread where he goes to check in and whatnot. Once he checks in, he'll be informed whom his group members are.

Thanks! I was just wondering how much information was in the letter about exactly what they'd be doing. =]
