Pottermore, PoA Chapter 10 (what I’ve found so far…)

DISCLAIMER: This is not exactly a live blog and it’s definitely not a Finder’s Guide. It’s what I’ve found so far. There’s also probably some stuff I’m missing. :)

Here’s what I’ve found so far (DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED!)…

CHAPTER 10: THE MARAUDER’S MAP

In this chapter, we take our first trip to Hogsmeade!

Pottermore gives us a great feast for the eyes. But I do hope commenters have found items that I have missed… because there SHOULD be a ton more stuff to find in Hogsmeade!!!

Scene 1 (“Dissendium”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Move cursor to get the door to open and shut.
    • Move the cursor to get the visor on the armor at the right to move.
    • UNLOCK: “The Marauder’s Map” (JKR-Exclusive Content) – click on the map in Harry’s hand next to the statue of what appears to be a crouching crone. (sorry, haven’t read PoA in awhile so don’t remember the statue descriptions from this scene).
    • From the Comments:
      • COLLECT Mistletoe Berries (above the statue). (Thanks, Kristen Learned and Annie!)
      • COLLECT Chocolate Frog Card for Gunhilda of Gorsemoor – one-eyed, hump-backed inventor of a cure for Dragon pox (and apparently, the subject of the statue). Card can be found at base of statue on right side. (Thanks, Annie!)
  • Zoom 2:
    • COLLECT Jiggery Pokery and Hocus Pocus (on the floor through the open doors. I think you have to open the doors at Zoom 1). This is actually a pretty funny title because the name of the book is comprised of “faux spells” that Harry called out when he was trying to get his cousin Dudley to back off at the beginning of CoS.
    • You can also see snow falling through the window behind the open doors.

Scene 2 (“HoneyDukes”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • COLLECT an Acid Pop from among the “lollipops” on the counter. “Acid Pop” will be a password to the Headmaster’s Tower in HBP.
    • Move cursor to group of students on the right to get what looks like a purple balloon to spontaneously inflate and float upward.
  • Zoom OUT 2:
    • COLLECT a Choco-ball (from middle counter – looks like a cupcake).
    • COLLECT a Peppermint Toad (from the green items on the left shelves).
    • Move cursor to male student at the left and watch him breathe fire (presumably using a Pepper Imp).
    • Move cursor to ring the shop bell.

Scene 3 (“The Three Broomsticks”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Blustery, cold, snowy, windy. Can move cursor around to get a snowball lobbed at you.
    • Really nice artwork and animation, but I’m not seeing much to do here.
    • From the Comments:
      • COLLECT a sprig of holly from the upstairs window of the nearest building (The Three Broomsticks?). (Thanks, JennyKruschke!)
  • Zoom 2:
    • Move cursor to get student at the left to breathe fire.
    • Move cursor to get doors to The Three Broomsticks to open.
    • COLLECT Chocolate Frog Card for Glover Hipworth (inventor of the Pepperup Potion). Side-effect of his invention: the drinker smokes at the ears for hours afterward. Card can be found on the ground to the right of Hagrid and Cornelius Fudge.
    • COLLECT snow ball (to right of the fire-breathing student).

Key to Zoom Levels:
I am using the conventions I’ve seen used elsewhere when discussing Pottermore zoom levels:

    • Zoom 1 = the original zoom level.
    • Zoom 2 = zoom in one level from Zoom 1.
    • Zoom 3 = zoom in two levels from Zoom 1.
    • Zoom OUT 2 = zoom out one level from Zoom 1.
    • Zoom OUT 3 = zoom out two levels from Zoom 1.

Pottermore, CoS Chapter 13 (what I’ve found so far…)

DISCLAIMER: This is not exactly a live blog and it’s definitely not a Finder’s Guide. It’s what I’ve found so far. There’s also probably some stuff I’m missing. :)

Here’s what I’ve found so far (DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED!)…

CHAPTER 13: THE VERY SECRET DIARY

Scene 1 (“Tom Riddle’s Diary”)
The key for Zoom Levels will be found at the bottom of the post.

  • Zoom 1:
    • COLLECT Bertie Bott’s Soap-Flavoured Bean (from floor)
  • Zoom 2:
    • COLLECT Leaping Toadstool (from floor)
  • Zoom 3: CLOSER LOOK at Tom Riddle’s Diary

Scene 2 (“Valentine’s Day”)
The key for Zoom Levels will be found at the bottom of the post.

  • Zoom 1: See the Great Hall through the Doors
  • Zoom 2:
    • COLLECT Bertie Bott’s Vomit-Flavoured Bean
    • COLLECT 3 separate Valentine’s Day Cards from 2 different tables
    • COLLECT Bertie Bott’s Strawberry-Flavoured Bean
    • COLLECT 5 Galleons (and I unlocked a Galleon-collecting badge!)
  • Zoom 3:
    • COLLECT Rose Oil (in front of Lockhart)

Scene 3 (“Into the Diary”)

Click on the number 13 on the page. It opens a new scene, with Riddle and Hagrid. I don’t think there’s anything to collect here, but if you move in to Zoom 2, you can see Aragog struggling to get out of the crate.
