The guy who posted it says he was part of a mall survey

It was one of those mall survey groups. I wasn't allowed to have the camera. The signs in the lobby say no phones but no one checked me. The guys who did all the paperwork looked like they gave zero fucks about their jobs and were getting anyone and everyone who would do the viewing to do it. I got paid to watch it


and last year there was a WB job listing for a "senior writer with a deep understanding of British culture" for an Avalanche Studios RPG (they make a ton of movie adaptation games) - https://www.neogaf.com/threads/avalanche-disney-infinity-now-owned-by-warner-hiring-for-a-ue4-harry-potter-rpg.1357969/

Just a quick guess, but it might be around the class names in the books (Potions, herbology defence against the dark arts, etc)

i hope it's more complex than like... you pick your best subject in school and if you decide you're good at charms your potions have weaker effects

wendy what are the spells that they invented after the 1800s and thus will be excluded from the game? i'm assuming there are some

it's not explicitly described in the books

inventing spells is very dangerous (luna's mother died doing it). the only people off the top of my head that i can think of that like successfully invented multiple spells were dumbledore, voldemort, and snape, arguably the three best wizards of the 20th century

kirito wrote:yeah harry buys a used potions textbook that's been heavily annotated and uses the notes to skip or change a ton of steps in class but produce way better potions. iirc he even uses the recipes during exams and is graded solely on the completed potion. so there is no science or process behind the curriculum at hogwarts whatsoever. potions is just a cooking class.

chemistry*~ actually but yeah

also harry doesn't buy the book he finds it in the potions classroom. it was snape's from when he took the class

the book is heavily annotated but the changes to the potions themselves aren't huge, i.e. the book says to cut up a bean to release the juices but snape crossed out "cut" and wrote "crush"

re: using recipes during exams, i think what you're thinking of is when slughorn asks them to brew an antidote based on...goldalott's third law or some shit which harry didn't understand, but in the potions book snape had written "just shove a bezoar down their throat" in the antidote section. at the end of the class when slughorn comes to look at harry's potion harry holds out a bezoar which slughorn thinks is hilarious and so he gives harry house points or something for "sheer cheek"

also we don't know how snape would have taught a 6th year potions class but we do know that if snape was still teaching potions in 1996 harry would not have tested well enough on his O.W.L.s to have gotten into the class. slughorn lowered the bar and accepted students who graded "exceeds expectations" and higher. also by their 6th year they're expected to have a good enough understanding of potions to improvise and experiment, so it's not that crazy that a student would be producing potions that could not be created if they followed the book precisely

in fact there is a class where slughorn asks the students to brew something like fun or surprising which suggests a certain amount of freedom given to the older students in potions

so i would argue that there is science and process behind the curriculum thank u

kirito wrote:i think it's implied that snape just teaches the textbook even though he's the most brilliant potion maker to ever live or whatever


like i said we know only how snape taught years 1 - 5, which are pre-O.W.L.s. however, he often put recipes/instructions on the board in addition to sometimes having them refer to their books. anyway from what i understand about potions it would be hella dumb to have pre-O.W.L.s students experimenting or improvising with recipes

sorry i'm done


i was kinda hoping you'd reply with this kind of post so ty. did they ever explain how they grade the effects of the potions? i remember that a lot of them were like, if the potion is the right color and smell than it probably works but do they ever actually test the effects?


often they were required to turn in a vial of their completed potions at the end of class but idk how they were tested

snape once tested a shrinking solution on neville's toad

slughorn tested draught of the living death by dropping a leaf in it and watching it die

wizards talked about them as the Big Three like people talk about roger, rafa and novak in tennis. this is canon.

I have a feeling I'll be more inclined to Witchbrook than the HP game. Like, goddammit, I just want to go to Wizard School, I don't want to Save the World from a Mysterious Evil

but I probably wouldn't mind playing both!
