Update: Early access to Pottermore is now closed. Congratulations to everyone who found the Magical Quill, and for those who didn't Pottermore will be open for everyone to register in October.

The seventh and final clue, from Deathly Hallows, for the Magical Quill Challenge is now live:

How many Deathly Hallows are there?
Multiply this number by 7.

Think you know the answer? Add the number to the end of this website address ( and find the magical quill for a chance to be one of the first million Pottermore beta users.

Best of luck to everyone!

The sixth day, the site took you to a video preview of the Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, and you basically just had to wait for the little feather to float on by (over the virtual map of the park) and click on it. At least, that’s how it all worked out for me. I suppose it was a way of rewarding patience, since I initially thought I’d been led to nothing more than an advertisement, but I let it play out and Mr. Quill soon showed up.

i hope the pottermore insider puts up a post that gives us some idea about when we can expect our welcome email. even if its as simple as ‘first come first serve’ or ‘randomly selected’

@luckyleo81 – I hope it’s done by day registered. That would seem like the ‘fair’ option.

I managed to register my account on the first day of the Magical Quill challenge. I’m extremely anxious and excited to receive my Welcome e-mail, the leaked screencaps look very promising indeed.

So the quill was a bit different on some of the days? On Day 1, it was just floating among a bunch of other feathers. If I clicked the wrong feather it told me “that’s not the magical quill!”
