So. What the fuck even is this?
Hi! Class of 1996 is a PSL I pulled out of my ass one afternoon while crying over the fact that I'd never have a outlet for some very specific character muses. I've tried Tumblr, Reddit, and ~pottergames, and let me tell you, it's pretty slim pickings out there.
Class of 1996 pretty much says it all in the title. The group would focus on characters strictly from the class of 1989-1996, like the Weasley twins, Angelina Johnson, Roger Davies, etc etc. There's plenty of characters with established canon and plenty that you can make your own. This gives players a chance to focus on a new crowd in school that doesn't revolve around the trio.Uh, so any guidelines?
I want this to be fun and not feel like an obligation. I'm not interested in lengthy applications or activity requirements, and just have a few basic tenants in mind.
1) I really prefer realistic PBs. Make sure your PB, if you choose one, looks like an actual teenager. It ruins the immersion a bit if it looks like we're playing with the cast of Teen Wolf and Gossip Girls.
2) The "plot" doesn't have to be totally linear. I'm fine with individual players exploring events that happen between 5th-7th years, the war, and even post war. We can do journal entries, narrative threads, or even just bounce ideas off each other casually. It's really up to you how you want to flesh out your character and interact with others.
3) Don't be dicks to each other. Anything else?
Any questions? We can talk on this post, and I'll edit it as I need to.
What characters would you like to bring? Comment below with a name, brief concept, and PB. Let's hammer out some details and see what kind of storyline you'd like to bring to the table with who you're playing.
Below, I'm going to comment with my characters. If there's any interest, we'll go from there.
