Dragon Pox on the Rise
After an unprecedented number of cases in December, St Mungo's is warning the public of an outbreak of Dragon Pox in England.

Roughly 80% of documented cases in the past month alone have proven fatal, a senior healer said, and those who did not succumb to the illness are not out of the fiendfyre yet. This strain of Dragon Pox appears to be more aggressive and less forgiving, with most cases reporting severe fatigue on top of known symptoms.

Healers are strongly encouraging anyone who experiences even mild symptoms of the illness to report to St Mungos immediately for treatment.

Battle of the Bands
The music scene is lighting up! While the Platonics are preaching girl power, Wyvern of Wye is hitting all the right notes. Both groups are making increasing marks on the music world, and everyone seems to be holding their breath - which group will come out on top?
