But with Joey not protecting you, that doesn't quite stack up either. Definitely something amiss with one of you, just can't be sure who at the moment.

Im happy to agree with that plan. Can't think of any other targets that wouldn't just be pot luck and a potential waste of a spell.

"Now children, pay attention" said Flitwick, as he bent over the wand. "This is an incredibly complex and not particularly well explained plot device, er, I mean spell, so your intonation must be clear and your wand movement accurate."

With those words, he uttered the charm and flicked his wand in an odd half hitch motion. "Prior Incantato"

A silvery fog emitted from the wand, then quickly gathered until it formed the ghostly image of a shield. A few seconds later the same thing happened again, as a second shield hovered in the air before dissipating to mist".

"Now, wasn't that instructive" said Flitwick, beaming at the class.

Okay, think that's fair to say we can trust Joey then. Probably a good idea to follow up with the protégé spell on Joey so he can protect someone else tonight.

Interesting, certainly racks up the suspicion on Spring for sure. Protecting Joey makes very good sense here though so sounds like a good shout.

Vote Count

Martin P - 2 (GuyCliquil, Sixtyten)

Yet to Vote - 9 (Cenedra, DoubleAitch, Elvortel, Chimpster, Joey, MartinP, Maxey, Mendax, Springogeek)

Cenedra may not talk, but may still vote. 11 people are left alive, so six votes are required to curse someone.

You have the following spells still available to you this lesson:

Accio
Expeliarmus
Prior Incantato
Wingardium Leviosa

Does anyone have any theories on what Accio and Wingardium can do for us in the game, or do we think they are "joke" spells?

So, I guess the question is what inanimate object do we really want to find? I can't recall an object in HP that does anything like check alignment, so I am really unsure. I'd be interested to know what impact the invisibilty cloak has though - that seems the most useful thing that comes to mind.

Isn't there a magical object or two which looks past all illusions and charms or something?

There's the triwizard thing, but we don't know about that because it doesn't appear until the next book. I'm not sure it would be that useful in this context anyway, but could be fun to try?

*Cricket*

Cenedra - If you're previously raised suspicions are just "I think X person is scum", can you vote for them so we know? If it's more a theory than a X is scum suspicion, then disregard :P

Been thinking about the Accio spell and come up with a list of options

If we summoned the Maurader's Map, the map shows which people are in the room regardless of disguises.
A Probity Probe (Seriously not making this up) detects spells of concealment and hidden magical objects. Filch apparently has one in the books, so there's one in the castle somewhere!
A Sneakoscope spins up when dark arts are near.
There's also the Sorting Hat as previously mentioned.

(All of these pulled of Wikipedia.)

I doubt we can get our hands on the Maurader's Map (As this would surely just end the game?), so I'd say we should use it on the Sorting Hat or on a Probity Probe and see if we can get some investigations done that way

We're stalling out here, so I'm going to put a deadline of one week from today (Wednesday 20th July, 10:00 am) to get this lesson wound up. If we haven't reached a conclusion by then there will be no curse and the remaining spells will go unused.
