By now I'm sure we all know and understand the concepts of a multi-fandom RPG. This particular game is not about the CRACK!fun. It is about having fun, and having characters interact, but with real rational thinking and drive behind those interactions. Random things are funny to some 12-year-olds... saying things like, "OMGmycharcterslike CHEESE" might entertain them... but we want a meaningful game, which is why we want to focus on characters who are well-developed and very deep.

So...what if the main conflict wasn't about ZOMG who is pureblooded and ZOMG who is a mudblood? What if that didn't matter at all? Or really, only a little, and then in social situations, like it is an excuse for snobbery, not violence.

The issue is not eradicating mudbloods and blood traitors, it's about the way magic is used, and for what purposes. Let the Muggle world go on as it is, neither the dark or light side will care.
This is a conflict about morality, and the way people use the powers they are given.

This game takes place in the Harry Potter universe, however no characters from the HP fandom are allowed.

Fandom Suggestions:
Stargate (SG-1 & Atlantis)
Battlestar Galactica (2003)
Law & Order
Lord of the Rings
Pirates of the Carribbean
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and related spinoffs)
Star Trek (any)
Star Wars (any)
Babylon 5
Wrestling (wwe/ecw/tna)
Horatio Hornblower
Chronicles of Narnia
Gilmore Girls
West Wing
One Tree Hill
X Men (movie canon)
Veronica Mars
Mean Girls
Literary Characters
Characters from Theatrical Works

You may app any character, from any fandom, as long as they are not from a cartoon, children's movie, comic book or anime series. Why are these excluded? Fandoms geared toward children are excluded, because the characters lack depth. Characters in children’s movies, etc are often created to be role models, or to embody certain traits. They are not realistic, three dimensional characters. So there.

You are strongly encouraged to app only HUMAN characters, or characters who are basically human in appearance (Vampires, Cylons, Mutants, life-like androids).

The Rules

1. Please be courteous out of character. Honestly. It's a role playing game. We're here to have fun. And none of that sugar-coated cyanide bullshit either. Just realize these are your mates and we're all here to have a good time.

2. All role-plays MUST take place in the correct thread (obviously)

3. All role-play entries must be date/time/week stamped in this format:

Time/Date: Tuesday, September 12th, early evening
Open To: Anyone

<*lj-cut text="Daciana sat at the table…"><*lj-cut>

*insert RPing paragraph behind this lj-cut* <*/lj-cut>

NOTE: Just remove the *s or see the LJ FAQ to learn how to do a proper lj-cut.

4. All role-plays MUST specify who may join outside of the livejournal cut. If they're open to all characters, you must specify open-ended.

5. All role-play posts MUST be behind a livejournal cut, with the information OUTSIDE the cut.

6. Do not assume another characters reaction, or do not puppet their character. With another players permission, you may write their reacton into the thread. Each player controls his or her own player ONLY. Please be mindful of this rule especially.

7. Your character may be in more than one active thread at a time. For example, if it is Wednesday morning and you are at breakfast, you may also play Wednesday afternoon, in the dormitory. However, you may NOT start both threads. You may only join another's thread after you have already begun one.

8. Your character MUST act in a way that is IN CHARACTER. If you put on your application that your character is shy, they may not suddenly come out of their shell. You were approved to be shy and shy you will be. Please make your character choices very carefully, and keep this in mind. The reason for this rule is that we intend to have a game of diverse and interesting characters. We cannot all go boldly charging off into the sunset, chasing down bad guys, or lighting the common room on fire. If too many characters of one type exist, we'll simply point that out in an application denial.

9. Respect and follow a posting order. Turns may be skipped if people decide OOC to switch things around to get better flow.

10. All OOC posts are to made in the OOC community. No OOC notes may be placed in role-play threads as it looks hideous.

11. In character vs. Out of Character knowledge. Your character may not know things unless:
A. They were there (which means part of the RP post)
B. They were directly told (in game play or via the personal journals)
C. The event was very public and distracting (ie: someone aflame in the great hall)

12. No attacks/major incidents without moderator approval.
A. Sara may be reached via email at sweetwingsfan25[at]aol[dot]com and on AIM: sweetwingsfan25

13. Character play-bys/Body Models: Your body model must be claimed and you cannot use a model who is already in use. Please try to use pictures that are age appropriate. For example, you have decided to play Jack O'Neill from Stargate SG-1. He is played, in the series by Richard Dean Anderson who is 55. If you want to play him as a STUDENT, you will have to find an age appropriate body model, like Michael Welch.

14. All role-plays must be done in third person novel form and PAST TENSE. Things just get messy when someone says, "Rowan walks into the common room" and another says, "O'Neill farted, loudly." See? The first is present tense, the second is past-tense.

15. Try to be canon to your character. Your character MUST act as the house they are placed in. Your character must attend classes. Your character must obey most of the rules OR be punished for the rules they break. Keep both canons in mind. Whatever fandom you come from, and the Harry Potter universe.

16. Some characters will be mod-played. The mods will have a story line in mind. We'll be playing out the school year where certain activities will take place.

17. There are slots for FIVE students in each house, per year, per gender. To use a canon example, the five Gryffindor boys in Harry's year are Harry, Ron, Neville, Seamus and Dean. If any of that was news to you, by the way, you should find another RPG.

18. This RPG is same sex relationship friendly on a PER CHARACTER basis. That is why there is a slot for "sexuality" in the application. Too many gay boys will not be tolerated. It is not canon and not practical.

19. You must have a personal journal for your character. In the "user info" you must keep a full profile of your character, including, but certainly not limited to, the fields you filled out on the application.
