Natal Chart Fun!

So, I know I'm not the only one that has a bit of difficulty with personality at first!! You want your characters to fit a certain mold, maybe, but not to the point where they're a cardboard cut out of a certain character theme!

That's where this comes in handy!

It's called a Natal Chart.
"In natal astrology, a natal chart is a horoscope/astrological chart drawn for the exact time of an individual's birth at a particular place on Earth for the purposes of gaining information about the individual." — wikipedia

The neat thing about Natal Charts are that they aren't nearly as cut & dry as your sun sign is. For example, my sun sign is Cancer & I am a Cancer native through & through. But my Ascendant (shows our natural defenses and how we cope with day-to-day issues. It's basically the mask that everyone wears.) is a Libra. Which makes a lot of sense because I am ALWAYS trying to make sure that everybody is happy. I'm big on neutrality & Cancers are actually known for not being very neutral & rather over-protective. lol.

It explains all of it in your natal chart. It'll give you tons & tons of personality quirks that you can run off of. I didn't explain it TOO well, but if you give it a try, you'll definitely understand better!

Hopefully I helped somebody out!

Maps! Maps! And more Maps!

I come here bringing you maps! First a cool trick, and then a couple of Harry Potter-specific maps.

First up, how to make a click-able map, mixed with some hidden tables just for kicks. Here's a live preview, since I'm not really sure how to explain it.

Clickable Maps )

And now onto the fandom maps!

Diagon Alley )

Hogsmeade )

So those are complete maps and codes with all the information filled in. Quite a few of those stores are original creations of mine, and I'm perfectly fine with people taking them and using them with two exceptions - 'Dos Diablos' from the Diagon Alley map and 'Croeso' from the Hogsmeade map. I'm using those somewhere else, and they've been deleted from the codes posted above. Also, there's a bunch of repeated names and such so if you're using them both in the same game you might want to fix that.

Below are some blank maps that you can color in with your own information.

that nifty fake cut!

Hi, my favorites! I've noticed a trend going around with people using that nifty, parentheses-less fake cut, and, I'll admit, I'm a shameless user myself. But one of the things I didn't like about the code I had was that it didn't jump right down to your text, like an actual cutlink. So I figured out how to make it do that!

follow the incredibly appropriate fake cut!
