There's two things I'm big into right now. Game of Thrones and Harry Potter. So I was thinking to myself, wouldn't it be fun to merge the two? Well....this is the result!
It is the year 1000 A.D. and the ten year anniversary of the opening of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardy. Every Wizarding family in the Western world wishes for their children to attend the finest source of education in the known world. To rub elbows with the right people and learn from the great 'Founders' themselves. It is expected to be a most interesting year. But not all is well.....
Scotland mourns at the loss of King Duncan I of House Black. Very soon his son Prince Regulus Black I shall be crowned, but he is just a boy of five. He shall be needing a Regent to advise and guide him. Whomever is chosen to occupy this prestigious office shall surely have great power to guide the Wizarding world and even mold the mind of this young King. There are clearly only four people worth considering. Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin. But which one?
As it would happen the great founders have made it very easy to determine whom is the finest leader among them, for they all lead a part of the student body. Just as the Wizard World has its Houses, so to does Hogwarts. Thus in a meeting between the founders and the Scottish Court Council a contest was devised to find which of the four is truly the most appropriate to lead the Realm until the King comes of age. The House Cup!
Each Founder shall compete by guiding their students and proving the wisdom and cunning
they possess. To ensure fair play and give the final say on rewards and penalties (and perhaps occasionally cause a problem to give students a chance to prove what they're made of!) the Royal Court has sent some representatives to take part in the school year.
Of course fair play in intended but who's going to play fair when the fate of the Wizard World hangs in the balance. The Regent to the King could aid in ushering in a new age of ideals and progress for Wizards and Witches everywhere...or see to it that the Wizard world remembers whom built and whom should rule it. Some forget the importance of blood purity
. It will certainly be an interesting year at Hogwarts. Being an ally of the Wizard or Witch that has the ear of the King could be rewarding, or ruinous if the person you backed didn't come out on top. Whom can you trust? And remember.....Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon.
Okay so yes, that's the set up! I'm hoping for a game that takes the politics, the secret plots & deals, the seduction and maybe even the betrayals
of the Game of Thrones and put it to the backdrop of Founders Era Scotland. Players would play the roles of Hogwarts staff (Founders & others), the current student body and members of the Royal Wizarding Scottish Court. Before I put up character apps, are people interested in such a game? Is there any questions or suggestions you have? I'd be most eager to hear it all! Thank you~
