WHEN DOES THIS TAKE PLACE?
Present day. The game will run in real time, starting in March 2019. The Marauders are 20-21 years of age. Basically, the canon year 1981 = 2019. If you're not good with conversions, simply add 38 years to any canon year.
HOW LONG WILL THIS GAME RUN?
This all depends on how quickly or slowly everyone gets through plot. Like any good tabletop campaign, we have about seven different “dungeons” to get through. However, plotting and pace will reflect player interest.
WHAT MAKES THIS A GPSL?
The cast will be limited and we’re invite only. Also we are going to regularly seek input from players. Yes, we have plans, but those are not set in stone. We want you to come up with your own plots or challenge us to change what we had in mind.
WHAT TYPE OF GAME IS THIS?
Hopefully a fun one, that may also touch upon injury, death, and more serious things but we're not looking to be too intense or burdensome. We are R-rated in the way that The Matrix or Terminator are R-rated. Hard limits for in game content (aka what we will not be writing): Rape, gratuitous or detailed violence/torture, abuse of children and animals, and incest.
Referencing or lightly describing torture and violence are okay, but we don’t need all the gory details. The same is true for sexual situations. For warnings in content please be sure to tag the following: sex, violence, character death, torture, medical procedures (esp. including needles, scalpels), and suicidal or homicidal ideation. As well as anything else you feel appropriate.
CAN I DO X, Y, or Z WITH MY CHARACTER?
Sure! Just give us the context and know that actions have consequences.
HOW DO THE JOURNALS WORK? WHAT ABOUT TECHNOLOGY?
Technology has come a long way in the wizarding world, and it's rare to find a magical household that doesn't use it in some shape or form. The journals can still be your average magical journals with networks and wards, they can be paper or more modern (WizPhone, Tablet).
ARE THERE ANY ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS?
Sort of. Every month we’d like to see two pieces of activity. This can be in whatever format you like -- logs, journal posts, comment wars. Basically just show up and you’re good, we’ll tailor plots to how active you can be.
IS THERE ANY SPECIAL POSTING FORMAT?
Just your typical who, what, when, where, and warnings. Put logs and any images behind a cut. All social media posts should be behind a cut. It saves loading and scrolling time for those of us on our phones and tablets.
THIS GAME SEEMS FAMILIAR...
We are an adaptation of the game blimey which was closed after the first month.
