  • What is the difference between keys to guest keys? / What are guest keys? / How can I get a key?

    Players on BYOND have the option of creating a free user account, which gives them an identity other than "Guest" to use online. You can do that now, or at any time you like later on.

    You can get a key by registering to BYOND here, if you choose to play BYOND games without a key your  guest key information is saved on the computer you use, meaning on other computers you won't be able to access your savefile.

    An account will keep saved game information, let you earn medals for your accomplishments, and give you a unique identity protected by your password.

Are the death eaters players or npcs?
The guy hoping to learn every spell possible :)


Updated some answers to recent updates, added "Are Deatheaters/Aurors players or NPCs/AI?".


what do you mean by learning a spell you already know?


When you go to a class, you learn a spell at the end of the class. The spell taught in class is decided by the teacher and is global, if he's going to teach Accio, you'll all learn Accio even if you learnt Accio yesterday.

But what if you already learnt Accio? What good will it be going to another class about Accio? That's learning a spell you already know.
