CHARACTERS: How many characters can I play? Right now, you may play as many characters as you can keep up with. However, we do have some guidelines regarding this: → Please try and place your students in different years/Houses. Yes, we know its fun to play a courageous Gryffindor, or a snarky Slytherin, but if all of your characters are "carbon copies" of each other, it gets a little boring don't you think? → Please allow for equal time for all your characters. The only way we can build friendships/relationships is if certain characters aren't favored over another. → We understand that people cannot dedicate 100% of their time to being online. However, we do ask that you try to be active at a minimum of twice a week.
Can I play someone who is not at school? Sorry, no! All outside events will only be reflected in news articles, letters, and other forms of written material. The scope of this game is being limited to students currently attending Hogwarts. At this time Professors are also not available for play. HOWEVER if for example you wish to run a log with a Professor/other adult (i.e. if Draco Malfoy wants to interact with his parents) please post up a sidelog in the community, and one of the mods will respond as appropriate.
I want to play! How do I apply? Go HERE and fill out the application. Post it as a comment to the entry and a MOD will get you set up ASAP. Once your character is accepted, you will be sent invites to the communities and may begin posting ASAP. We also ask that you then fill out the character bio sheet (located HERE) and post it as a new entry on your characters journal.
PLEASE NOTE THAT CHARACTERS/PBS ARE ACCEPTED IN THE ORDER THEY ARE RECEIVED. WE WILL TRY OUR BEST TO KEEP THE CHARACTER LISTS UPDATED TO REFLECT ALL CHANGES.
PLOT-LINES: I have an idea for plot! →WONDERFUL!! We love players who want to get involved with the overall direction of the game. If you have an idea for your character, or a group of characters, a general event, etc - please share. We have planned a lot of large-scale events to take place in game but are always looking for more creativity to fill the spaces in-between.
How Do I Share?
→ Leave a comment to the entry HERE and a mod will get back to you ASAP!
I just joined, can I establish friendships randomly? → As long as you clear it with the characters first, I see no reason why this cannot be done. For the most part, all characters here are very friendly and easily approached.
RULES: → Always be respectful towards all players, please.
→ If your thread contains material that may offend someone (sex/violence/strong language) we ask that you place a WARNING label on your thread. → If your character is not in a thread, you cannot "magically" know what was said. → Your character may not be "perfect". Lets face it, everyone has their flaws. → YOU MAY NOT KILL OFF ANY CHARACTER THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU. If you should wish to kill off one of your own characters, you may, but please let the mods know ahead of time so we can update the list. →Private storylines are encouraged! If two people want to get together for a scene, that is great, just make sure both players are on the same page (i.e. a death eater character using the imperius curse on another).
