I know we got some Potter games going on but I want to try something a little different, original characters, a different setting... and a whole lot of potential for fun and intrigue.
As the 15 year of The Dark Lords rise to control of wizarding Britain approaches he has set his eye on expanding his territory even further. Already most of Europe has fallen beneath his control, Governments are left intact but those in charge report to him now.... but he was never going to be satisfied with even a single continent and now looks across the Atlantic to new territory. As before he intends to have the government of the North American Wizards and Witches overthrown and place those who will obey him and his wishes in charge... in the last decade Blood Purity groups have been gaining popularity there and he thinks it is about time to strike.
The Coup takes place in a single night, those in power who wouldn't bow to him already fall quickly and are replaced without much trouble. But things won't go so smoothly this time, the Wizards here saw what happened to England, and in many other countries in Europe, the moment word gets out about the suspicious deaths they begin to organize, those who oppose the Dark Lord are ready to fight an insurgent war to keep themselves and those they care for safe.
I see the game taking place in New York, large and diverse city, gives us plenty of things to work with. I would rather keep Canon character out of it, however characters could have ties to them, by blood, or marriage, or even just old friendships. If necessary they could be used as NPCs... I am seeing the game playing out, Pure Bloods who find themselves wielding new influence and power, some happy with the new leadership others ready to resist, with those of lesser blood trying to hide what they are or maybe even fight it.
As for what happened in this setting that didn't happen in Deathly Hallows... Potter never made it out of the Ministry, he died along with Ron and Hermione. Others tried to resist but with the boy who lived and Dumbledore gone they lacked much by way of inspirational leadership.
So lets see who is interested and who has ideas... but keep in mind that the game I am starting will be controlled by me. Now good ideas will be listened too but if you put forward an idea that seems to only appeal to a very narrow base (IE you and you alone) then I will likely not implement it. I have had nasty drama with games before and would hate to see that happen here... so lets hear who is interested, lets hear your ideas... don't post characters yet though if you feel inspired to create a certain type of character, for example a down on his luck pure blood who finds his situation in life improved but is conflicted about the changes... feel free to share it.
