I always got the impression that Hogwarts and the homes of Wizard families was in another world/dimension from the normal muggle world.  Otherwise wouldn't humanity have discovered things like trolls and centaurs by now?

As far as I am aware there is actually a whole section of the wizarding ministry that is devoted to the suppression of magical activity amoung muggles, cloaking various buildings to appear as other things like the hospital looks like a condemned building to muggles.
Thanks to others who have answered this question as well. ;)

Alright, does every wizard or witch have to have a familiar?  Can a familiar be any animal?  I was thinking a big raven might be pretty cool whether I made Ravenclaw or not.  I just only remember people having rats, owls, toads and cats in the movies.  Then again, I've never read any of the books so I may have missed something.

Aiden and myself answered part of this previously with regard the pets allowed but no not every witch or wizard needs to have a familiar but I think it is recommended. The best if you are unsure what to go for is probably an owl and that way you have your own personal owl for sending messages instead of using the school ones. ;)

no one gets their house until their sheet is posted up - you can leave that part blank for now and add it in after wards Lunar ;)


could every one please please add in the year your characters were born, we won't have a clue who is a first year from a senior otherwise ;)
thank you

loving the character sheets so far

Just curious... what does blood status mean?

whether your character is a pureblood, a muggle or a half blood

Sorry 'bout that, Kendra; I've added it in. I'm also basically done with the sheet; just need to find a picture now, and fill out the rest of his physical description...

Gotcha.  Thanks Kendra.  Though I thought there wasn't such thing as a true pure blood anymore.

*pokes* tis all there - go to the rules and guidelines and it's posted there ...

PURE BLOODS

If your character is a pure-blood both of their parents are magical, and all of their grandparents and so on. It means a 'muggle' was never married and that all ancestors have been magical. That being said, it is very obvious that this must be quite impossible. J.K Rowling has stated that 'true' pure-bloods do not exist in the magical world, and that any family that claims to be entirely 'pure' has simply erased muggles and squibs from their family trees. With this knowledge in mind our definition of a 'Pureblood' is that all great-grandparents and any direct ancestors below them were all magical. This, of course, also means that your character can have two magical parents and still not be a 'pure-blood'.

If you wish your character to be a pureblood, do up a good character concept with a believable line of heritage. They do not have to be canon.

no worries THM - just remove the WIP when you're done and we'll know you're good to go ;)

There really isn't such a thing as a true pure blood anymore. Those that are, are horribly inbreed (look at the Gaunt family, after all). At least in my opinion.

Then again, it has been mentioned (by fans) that there is no such thing as a real Muggle Born either, that all Muggle Borns are really the descendants of Squibs who married into Muggle families and the magical abilities are just reemerging in a newer generation....but that might be going too far into it and it just plays into my sick idea of an X-Men/Potterverse crossover fanfiction. >.>

Not if the magical abilities of witches and wizards is actually a very low-level mutation of the X-Gene, a very common one...since, as we all know, mutants will produce other mutants (pure bloods) and the rare occasion that they don't (squibs) would still result in future mutations (so called muggle-borns).  ::)

For those of you with sheets up and future.


Under the "House" option

Can you add whether you are a 1st year (or starting the game as a later year, 5th year being the oldest)




We want to make sure, since birthdays span the year some seem older and are confusing us if you mean to be first or second years.

Well now that I know that I have more to add for my pureblood back ground I am sure that I have to go back and edit a few things. And I also have to go through and take the test and do the character sheet.

Thank you GM's for getting that up quickly. And I hope you don't go crazy trying to sort out everyone.
