Welcome to another year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Yet again, the time has come for you to mingle with friends, bet wagers on who will win the next Quidditch match, flirt with the hot guy/girl in your Potions class, play pranks on the first years, confront your liar of a best friend, and, of course, continue your magical studies.
Now, we're all for bettering your future, getting good grades, and all that fun stuff. But these are the years where you can have fun and live life until reality outside the castle hits you square in the face. These are your golden years. So take a chance, live a little. Just take heed -- not everything that shines is always going to be gold.
This is an original, alternate universe, Harry Potter roleplay where there is no influence from J.K. Rowling's amazing series whatsoever, and only original characters attend Hogwarts. Also, make sure to peek into our chatbox!
Respect is a must. Any teasing or bullying of any kind (out of character) will not be tolerated. Ever. We get that everyone has different views and thoughts, and that there will be several different personalities coming together, but if anything gets out of line, there will be consequences. Talk to a mod if someone or something is bothering you.
Even though we all love and adore the Harry Potter series, this RPG is an alternate universe of that reality where none of the events that J.K. mentioned in her books ever took place. Meaning there will be no mention of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, the Potters, the Marauders, etc. However, the concepts of the Wizarding world still apply.
Make sure your character’s ask box and submit page is enabled! We need to be able to contact you after being accepted.
There really is no age limit, however, this RPG will contain mature content (sex, drugs… rock and roll?). So if you’re not comfortable with any of that, think twice before joining us.
There’s no limit to how many characters you can have. All we ask is that you take ratios into consideration, as well as keeping all your characters ACTIVE!
You have two days to check in after being accepted. If there is no word from you after being accepted, then your face claim and character will not be integrated into the RP.
POSTING AND ACTIVITY
If you choose to join us, you are immediately agreeing to stay active. We’re not asking you to post paras every single day, all we want is for you to at least post something (convos, one liners, paras, etc) once every week/seven days.
That being said, you are expected to use proper spelling and grammar at all times. But we’re not anal about it, we get that people make spelling and grammar mistakes all the time. We consider ourselves to be a literate RPG. Also, there is no word count. Quality over quantity, always!
If you haven’t posted in seven days, with no word of an absence, then your character will be removed from the RP. So remember to let us know if you are going on hiatus or if your activity will be lacking!
God-modding is not allowed. At all. Ever. It’s annoying, doesn’t make sense, and just asljkdha don’t do it.
KEEP THE DASH PRETTY! Reblog as text (see this!) and cut down posts, please and thank you.
No one likes Mary Sues. We like developed characters; ones that have just as much flaws, and weaknesses as they do with strengths and positive traits. If you need help developing your character, we would love to help! :) One tip? Figuring out your character’s MBTI personality type really helps. There is also a link on the sidebar to a character development blog that may be of use to you :)
If your character is on the Quidditch team, they CANNOT be a prefect. Or if they’re a prefect, they CANNOT be on the team. Student positions are filling up fast, and this is to simply give new people who want to join a chance at having their character as a prefect or a Quidditch player.
We’re not anal about how old your face claim is in real life. So use whoever you want. However, be somewhat realistic. We’ll have to tell you to change your face claim if you’re trying to use Robin Williams as a seventh year.
While we’re on the topic of face claims, please keep it strictly celebrity face claims (i.e. musicians, actors/actresses, models, etc.)
And lastly, have fun! Enjoy yourselves. That’s what we love most about RPing. SO DO IT! OR ELSE.
