Hmmmm now does this mean that the interactions of a Drumstrang student would be more of a seasonal appearance?
Hmmmm I am very torn between these two now....
What are the main differences between temp students and the original 4 houses? As far as interactions, and every day occurrences? Are they as active as others?
OR are they more active during the cup and such?
Beauxbaton and Durmstrang students are only there for the Twi-Wizard Tournament, which lasts the entire school year.
All students (Beaux, Durm, Hogwarts) can be played for the same amount of time. There are no restrictions on how many scenes they can appear in and so forth. They can participate in the class threads, events (Yule ball, Halloween Ball, etc), and pretty much do the same as a Hogwarts student. The main difference between temp kids and Hogwarts ones is that they don't get house points for participating in class threads. Of course, Beaux and Durm students might also differ from each other due to various cultures and how their institution operates. For example, Beaux and Durm students were different uniforms from Hogwarts students.
Once May 2014 comes around, they will be leaving for their homelands to never return (unless you're opting into the 4th year and above transfer option).
Hogwarts is more of a mid-ground in my opinion. Durm is more militaristic in nature. Beaux is more of a fine arts and medical school. You can get a general feel for the foreign schools here
A question that I thought was answered, but I couldn't find it (and may have missed it, since my brain is a bit mushy today), but... How many characters are new writers (to this group) allowed to have to begin with?
Two characters are the maximum. :)
