Happy Slyth-o-ween!!

Recommended Posts

Because the Chamber of Secrets is now basilisk-free, this year for Slyth-o-ween we will explore the depths of Salazar Slytherin’s lair. What secrets will you uncover?

To ensure that we have plenty of time to search the Chamber, all tasks are due by 23:59 HOL time on Sunday 5 November.

Here, take a chocolate frog!

Well, what are you waiting for? Open it! Which card did you get?

One of the chocolate frog cards contains a clue to the password for you to join our Slyth-o-ween festivities. The password is all lowercase letters with no spaces (i.e. chocolatefrog). Can you figure out what it is? (You can start a password discussion here in this forum, but please do not post the actual password.)

Any general questions about Slyth-o-ween can also be posted below. But if you have specific questions about tasks or need a hint for anything, please send me a PM.

I got #24, Adalbert Waffling.

Check the main website, Tarma! And then look at your treasures :)

Hmmm I wonder what this all means.. The only thing I can think of is that he wrote Magical Theory.

I’m assuming that when the person gets that one card with a clue, it will be obvious that the card contains a clue?

 

I’d been avoiding the banner/icon activity because... well... graphics and I don’t mix - but if I need to do the graphics to take part in any of the rest of the festivities, I should have something up within 6 hours!

I've got all the cards too, but they look like Arianna's cards.

I have tried breeds of winged horses and different words I could think of which are associated with the cards folks have received.  Unfortunately, I didn't keep a list of them. *cough*

I think I'll make up a list and try them. Again.  >.<

 

EDIT:  Is it permissible to post in here words which do NOT work?

EDIT the SECOND:  I just tried all these words and they don't work --

That is correct, Amanda. I can give out chocolate frogs, but I have no control over what cards come out. Luckily, the card I had in mind was already mentioned above!

Just because you got through doesn't mean you can't post in here anymore, by the way. Strength in numbers could be important in the Chamber of Secrets.
