At the dawn of 2027, war is a distant memory remembered mostly in the lines between your parents' brows, the grandparents you never got to meet, the great-uncle in Azkaban only spoken of in whispered conversation. The Ministry of Magic knew peace couldn't eliminate generations of scars and grudges and fear, and an ambitious youth cohabitation project was their solution.

Wrinkled RP

OPENING 27 MARCH

WRINKLED RP
A First War Displacement Game
A displacement Harry Potter game set during the First Wizarding War in 1979.

The meddling of students in 2020 and a damaged time turner created a pocket ripple along the timeline they meddled with and ultimately left people stranded at the height of the First Wizarding War. While the people of that year live try to live their time period out as they intended, people from the future have come with information of a second war of genocide, and of ways to fix it all.

The only problem: the Death Eaters have the same information

The World 1979: A wrinkle in time has formed around this year, where people have been pulled to it. While the world is filled with others, it seems few realize what has happened and what it means for that reality's future.

Lines Requested Current requests: Death Eaters, Ministry, and older Order members.

What to Expect Active, creative minds willing to play both the darker side of war and the absurdity that comes from it.

Known as the ‘Dark Age’, Licorus Black became King not long after turning 17 after his father’s sudden death to Dragon pox as it swept through the wizarding world. Under the iron-fist of King Licorus, the wizarding world seemed to freeze in time, forcing industry and all innovation to a complete halt. His Nobles deposed him in late 1849 in favor of his son Cygnus I, who died 3 years later in 1852 after his coronation from ‘unknown causes’. His brother Arcturus I became regent until his son, Phineas Nigellus was old enough to take the throne though his reign ended in 1900 when his son overthrew him in favor of ‘change’.

King Sirius II’s reign became one known as the ‘Golden Age of Wizards’. For the next 52 years, under King Sirius II, the Wizarding World of London and Paris thrived. Beneath him, trade was at an all-time high and purebloods developed far more power than they ever had in time before it. It was also under King Sirius II that the Statute of Secrecy was reinforced to ensure that Muggles remained out of the wizarding world. The goal at that time was to ensure an eternal divide.

Arcturus III brought an era where the people were counted among those that mattered. Where the Nobility was charged with the protection of not just the Crown but of her people. It was an era where your purity did not promise you favor with the king, as two unfortunate families discovered when their lands and titles as higher nobility were taken in favor of families that were able to manipulate their way into the good graces of the King. Under Arcturus III Nobility began to rise in power (in some ways even above the King himself) and it became a dangerous struggle for power that was never quite recovered.

Upon his death, Orion I was crowned and what hopes the people had for possible reform died almost immediately as the High Nobles were charged with being more ruthless in hopes of bringing the kingdom back together and maintaining order. By 2005 Orion’s interests have shown that they do not stand with his people so much as with the wealth and power that comes with his station and his nobles. The more ‘trivial’ tasks of daily life within the kingdom and its lands have fallen on the high nobility who are constantly at war amongst themselves and the nobles who foam at the mouth to become one.

As Orion’s fate grows ever more in question as age takes its toll, nobles and commoners alike begin to wonder - what will become of the kingdom once the King dies. His son, Sirius III has a reputation for being a troublemaker and far more progressive than his father but the nobility has no desire to allow their power to slip away so easily. The youngest Prince - Regulus has been steeped in tradition his whole life and of the two, he is far safer for nobles to trust than his brother.

When push comes to shove, who will win the war for the throne and will they keep it? There is outright war on the horizon but that war will start in the very heart of the Kingdom. What side are you on?

A HOGWARTS DAWN
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has protected its own through time and realities. It did so even when wizards could not see the foolishness of their actions. Most of the times, the castle and its inhabitants have been able to stop the nefarious acts of a few, but that is not always the case.

The year is 2038 and in one reality, Hogwarts stands devoid of students. The ghosts and the house-elves keep thing going, but there are no more wizards and witches in the country. They have all disappeared and the few Muggleborns have no one to guide them as they discover their own powers. The Muggles keep living, ignoring the war that has ended the life of all the wizards.

With no one else left to help, Hogwarts decides to fix things. Slowly, one by one, wizards and witches from different times and realities begin the appear. The house elves cheer up. The castle rejoices, but what happens to the people who suddenly find themselves displaced.

All war has a cost. As the final curses were uttered on the battlefield of Hogwarts on May 2nd, and the Death Eaters reign of terror - indeed, Voldemort himself - was ended, the world began the process of healing. The wizarding world was wrong.

As the world began to repair itself, the world began to notice something strange. Hogwarts registry was beginning to decline, the maternity ward became emptier and emptier. Regardless of the conspiracy theory anyone chooses to believe, the reality was clear: Wizarding kind was facing its end. Though there were several proclamations that were issued after the war, each one meant to better society, there was none so important as the tenth -- the initiative to save wizarding kind from extinction.

REWRITE
would you rewrite your story?
PREMISE
2 May 1998 was a day that would reverberate throughout history and changed the course of life as the Wizarding World knew it. Lord Voldemort had won. Narrowly escaping death, Harry Potter was forced to go on the run along with the surviving members of the Order of the Phoenix. Those that fell during their hasty retreat into the Dark Forest, were unfortunately left behind to their fate. There was little that could be done for them. Small comfort for those that ended up in hiding at Grimmauld place, before eventually fleeing outward toward other countries and new lives. The Order, or so it seemed, was fractured beyond repair and redemption.

Refusing to give up on their world, a small group of Hogwarts students began the painful task of trying to regroup and come up with a plan. Through that process the idea what if we used a time turner came about. Maybe it was a joke, a laugh someone thought to give the group that were desperate as their options began to dwindle, maybe they were serious. Whatever the reason, despite it being brushed off at first, Hermione took it upon herself to research it. What did they have to lose? Even if it wasn’t viable, at least they’d researched every option.

Months later, Hermione came to the group with a plan. They would indeed go back in time but not just a few months to prevent Voldemort’s rise, not a few years to prevent Peter Pettigrew from rejoining him, no they would go back further. They would go back to the beginning of the war where it all started. Back before Harry Potter became the chosen one. Back to where Voldemort can be truly killed before any of this ever happens.

UT EX PHOENIX
an au trio-era game
2 May 1998, the war has raged for over two years now with Voldemort's hold over the wizarding world becoming terrifyingly tight. Worse, his rage over being unable to find and kill Harry Potter has made him devastatingly volatile. Life after life falls in his wake and no one knows where he will strike next. Then, as the final page of the story was being turned, Neville Longbottom spoke up. Making their last, valiant stand at Hogwarts might have been fine for Voldemort himself and for Harry, but all the innocent there didn't deserve to die. Harry agreed.

One after another, people were rushed through the room of requirement as Hogwarts was attacked. The deafening sound of spells trying to break through the 'protego' charm surrounding the castle, added more fear as each person made their way out through Hogsmeade. It was a night meant as a reckoning for the wizarding world but instead, as Death Eaters entered the Hogwarts grounds they found them empty. Rubble and death greeted the man hellbent on revenge. It is said his scream of hatred and the killings that followed echoed and the dark mark bled so deeply into the sky you could see it throughout the world.

15 July 1998. Two months, the DA and Order have been on the run, formulating plans and growing in numbers. Numbers that are now strong enough to face Voldemort and his wrath. With the help of allies from around the country and Europe, Harry is finally ready to face his fate. To find Voldemort and show him once and for all that the wizarding world will not bow to any 'Dark Lord.'

Ut Ex Phoenix is a short term game intended to run for 3 months to play out an alternate end to the war

It starts with a man cooking his breakfast. It's Sunday, he thinks. It must be Sunday, because it was Saturday yesterday, and even though he can't seem to remember yesterday finishing, the sun is slung low in the sky of a new morning. His head hurts, and the memory loss is slightly disorientating, but he is hungry, and soon his wife and child will be awake and eating with him and he will put this discomfort aside. Sure enough, his wife enters the kitchen. He drops his frying pan from the surprise of her scream. It's Tuesday, not Sunday. It's a year after his death.

Reoccurrence is an alternate universe Harry Potter roleplay set in 2005, seven years after the second war. It takes inspiration from French drama, Les Revenants, and BBC's In The Flesh. It asks the question: what would the wizarding world look like if the people we thought were gone returned one day?

game opens june 19th!

Endgame


The year is 1994. Days are getting longer. The weather is getting warmer. The Quidditch World Cup is just around the corner. Rumours abound about a big event at Hogwarts.

Life couldn't be better.


Thirteen years ago saw the end of Lord Voldemort. The Dark Lord who terrorised the wizarding world, along with his monsters-at-arms, the Death Eaters. A mistake that cost him a piece of his soul and seemed to wipe him off this plane of existence. It also caused an unfixable rift amongst his followers.

However, the rest of the world breathed a sigh of relief. And, after years of mistrust and uncertainty, the wizarding world was finally able to start rebuilding and recovering. That was until recently. Strange goings-on, werewolf attacks, unexplained murders, an escaped prisoner on the loose; rumours are spreading like wildfire. Something is stirring in the East.

Endgame is an AU Harry Potter game set in 1994 following the lives of the adults of the HP canon

Welcome to
The Purist Initiative

THE PURIST INITIATIVE
A Dark AU Harry Potter Game
Harry Potter is dead. With Voldemort's disappearance, the Death Eaters retained control of the Ministry, their reign arising from out of the crumbling ashes of the Battle of Hogwarts. The magical world waited with bated breath to see what was to come. The changes, however, started off impossibly small. But they did come.

Following a series of muggle attacks on wizarding communities, muggleborns slowly began to lose their rights in the name of their supposed protection. Falling to the wayside in the community at large, they came to be an unprotected, at-risk population, easy to exploit. Now, fourteen years later, a hierarchy has emerged based on blood status. Those at the top seem to have all the rights, while every step could lead to possible ruin. Those at the bottom seem to have nothing to lose while those in the middle have the largest array of choices. Everything a character does can have potential consequences. What choices will yours make?

The Purist Initiative is a dark post-war AU RPG where Voldemort's ideas of blood purity has created a caste system within the closed Wizarding World. A variety of catastrophes and political issues continue to arise, allowing for a very plot driven game. We officially opened August 7, 2019 and has been going strong for eight months. Please check us out and put in a hold if you're interested!

The World 2013: The magical world is cut off completely from the muggles in three major cities. Magical London, the center of the government. Within Diagon Alley, war is brewing, the ministry is splitting, and the resistance is threatened more now than ever.

Lines Requested Current requests: Purist and Death eaters. People comfortable with heavy plot and light social aspects. Dark themes are encouraged.

What to Expect A highly active, fast-paced game with plot options available for characters from all walks of life from child, muggleborn orphans to elite Death Eaters. War is on the horizon now with the Lestrange brothers at odds, disruption of the peace following public executions, and the barely stable ground everyone has known slowly crumbling once again.

The New Hunt
Post 2nd War Harry Potter RPG
PREMISE
The Second War ended, but the ripple effect into the Muggle world couldn't be stopped. Too many Muggles had been killed and as much as the Ministry of Magic had tried, they couldn't contain all the questions and whispers. The family of the victims demanded information, they demanded answers. And while the Ministry never confirmed the existence of magic it became impossible to stop all the whispers.An American group, known as the New Salem Philanthropic Society became active once again. By 2001, governments around the world were swept up into the belief. Ministries all over the world were pressured to turn over their witches and wizards to the Muggle governments. Many countries resisted at first, but one by one they all surrendered.
Save one. One Ministry kept calm and carried on. The United Kingdom is the last safe refuge for witches and wizards. The magic running through the hills and valleys is too old, too strong, and too powerful to be so easily handed over to fanatics. Rather than bowing to another dictator, the Ministry of Magic opened its doors to international witches and wizards and created a new governing body. The Wizengamot was restructured, providing seats to foreign countries. New laws were written. And the primary focus of the Ministry became one of survival and growth. The borders of every magical town and institution have been closed. Travel into the Muggle world is only allowed at certain times to help ensure the safety of witches and wizards. But is it enough to combat the heightened attacks by the New Salem Philanthropic Society? With technology advancing, their attacks have become more measured, more deadly, and far more vicious. From biological warfare, kidnapping, assault, and torture, the New Salem Philanthropic Society will stop at nothing to erradicate the world of magic once and for all.

The New Hunt is set in 2008, ten years following the Second War. And the fate of the magical world is once again up in the air.

GAME OPENS MARCH 1ST!

A semi-AU HP-RPG that looks to explore what the students at Hogwarts went through while the Golden Trio was off chasing trinkets. How did Neville become such a notable leader during the war? What happened to the muggle-born students who weren't wealthy or capable enough to convince their muggle parents to go into hiding? How were the DA members that fought at the Battle of Hogwarts able to hold their own against notable murderers twice their age? And how the hell did that convenient tunnel connect from The Hogs Head to the Room of Requirement? Join us on this adventure to write the stories of the characters who were ready when The Golden Trio called.

WELCOME TO WIZZYWOOD
Glitz, glamour, drama, and literal magic are just the tip of the iceberg in the wizarding world's answer to Hollywood. Hidden away in an unknown location that is accessible from many places in the country, it has all of the great storylines underway, but none of the special effects budgets!

Wizzywood is a social game based on the Harry Potter world and set in the United States in the current year. It operates on a "divorced canon" philosophy, wherein it borrows applicable bits from canon, ignores what doesn't work, and makes up the rest. It can (and probably will) contain adult content.
