With all the hype going around this new website, I decided to jump in the bandwagon, so to speak. I’m not really that excited with whatever news Rowling’s got (I’m quite content with the seven books, eight movies and countless admirable people surrounding the franchise), but that’s not me saying I don’t care.
Because I care, really. It’s just my crappy internet connection working against me. The highest it can go is 33 kbps — 50 on a good day, 10 on a bad — so that means I can’t open up YouTube. However, diligently scouring through the many articles on the internet, this is what I got:
- J.K Rowling’s announcing something on the 23rd of June; the YouTube link is for the countdown
- It has nothing to do with the upcoming movie
- No matter how much the fans pray, the announcement has nothing to do with a new set of Potter books, either… *insert sad face*
- On the brighter side, it could either be…
- A virtual encyclopedia — I read somewhere that Rowling was planning to do this years ago. I wonder what’s going to happen to Harry Potter Lexicon if this is true.
- A social networking community — this would be my favorite, since I’m an avid social networking geek. I would love to connect with other Harry Potter fans.
- Last but not the least, a multi-player online role-playing game.
I’ve had my fair share of RPGs — Hogwarts New Zealand comes to mind at the moment — and I have a strong feeling that this might be answer. I mean, it’s PotterMORE. Potter Multiplayer Online Role-playing Experience. Need I say more?
I can’t take credit for the idea, seeing as it’s not mine. I got that from this link. Still, I think the idea has credit. While I’m still rooting for the social networking community, I’m not saying no to an RPG.
Over and out.
