Right. First thing to do as evil consultant, I will need an office with furnishings of the finest black Corynthian leather, and mahogany. Also, you will be billed by my dry cleaners (can't be evil without an appropriate suit, after all!).  8-)
That's what henchmen are for. *Nods.*

Yeah, like the guy in the 6,000 dollar suit is gonna do his own dry-cleaning.

*grins* Nothing really until I set up the character thread. Have you read through the rules to try to get an idea of them?

Total flake out on the exact date here, would Luna be 16 or 17 currently? (Born between 1 September, 1980 and 2 May , 1981)

This might help

Common woods that wands are made from, and birth months/days commonly associated with them.  Many wandmakers (including Ollivander), prefer to match wand woods with this table, so it is very common.  Other woods may be used. (Note: Dates are in m/d format)

Apple Tree: 6/25 - 7/4, 12/23 - 1/1
Ash: 5/25 - 6/3, 11/22 - 12/01

Birch: 6/24
Cedar: 8/14 - 8/23, 29/9 - 2/18
Chestnut: 5/15 - 5/24, 11/12-11/21
Cypress: 7/26 - 8/4, 1/25 - 2/3
Elm: 7/15 - 7/25, 1/12 - 1/24
Fig: 6/14 - 6/23, 12/12 - 12/21
Fir: 7/5 - 7/14, 1/2 - 1/11
Hazelnut: 3/22 - 3/31, 9/24 - 10/3
Hornbeam: 6/4 - 6/13, 12/2 - 12/11
Lime: 9/3 - 9/12, 3/1 - 3/10
Maple: 4/11/ - 4/20/, 10/14/ - 10/23
Mountain Ash: 4/1 - 4/10, 10/4 - 10/13
Oak: 3/21
Olive: 9/23
Pine: 8/24 - 9/2, 2/19 - 2/29
Poplar: 2/4 - 2/8, 8/5 - 8/13
Walnut: 4/21 - 4/30, 10/24 - 11/11
Willow: 9/3 - 9/12, 3/1 - 3/10

Yeah, I know. I have a wealth of wand lore knowledge and links because of my OC who's the daughter of a wand maker. The birthdays don't actually pay that much towards the wand. The wands makes the wizard/witch, the wood has to match personality

My apologies. My girlfriend stole me away before I could finish the sheets and I was busy all morning. Will try to get them up sometime tonight. Will post again tonight with hopefully at least one example sheet.

Here's an OC Death Eater that I am working on that you can use as an example:

Background: Ex-Chaser and briefly captain for Hufflepuff team, brought home the Quidditch Cup twice, once as Captain. 
Reason for Joining the Death Eaters: Vengeance against Muggles 
Wand: (In progress), Violent
Pet: None

Agility 3       Fly 1B
Athletics 3
Awareness 3      Notice 1B
Cunning 3      Strategy 1B
Deception 3
Endurance 3      
Fighting 2
Magic Expertise 3   Curses 2B
Magic Projection 4

Approved Character board is up. Don't count on my numbers being correct until KC double checks me. :) Hopefully will have Neville up sometime tomorrow as another example.

DADA is an odd class, as it combines spellcasting with practical knowledge.  The spellcasting portion is covered under Magical Expertise, and the academic bit was fairly minor, not being worth an ability.

We're going to be balancing characters a lot to make it fair to other players. See my Hermione sheet... which is fairly underpowered for her as she should have 5s in pretty much all her classes... and a higher magical projection as my girlfriend pointed out to me (via the examples of her Wards and her spells in general) at which point I had to tell her it was balanced Hermione.

If you'd like to collaborate with KC or I for assistance, I'll be glad to help.

If anyone knows anyone who'd be interested in playing Draco or Ron please let me know either in here or via PM. I think we can get started as soon as we get character sheets from everyone, but I'd prefer to start with a Draco. To be completely honest, I can start without a Ron. Draco is one character I'm very interested in seeing played out. Ron I can NPC until we find someone interested in him. However, if anyone knows someone interested in Ron also let me or KC know. Thank you!

For those intending on playing OCs still! I will change the topic name when that's a go! But, if you guys also want to send in sheets for me/ask how many points your allotted go ahead. I'm only intending on the Canons being main for a couple of days in game time. So hopefully only a few weeks real time (maybe longer given real life events). So any preparations are appreciated. :)

note though, I'm not sure if he's interested. This kind of AU isn't really his kinda thing. Not really mine either, usually. But the idea is very interesting and I like you. LOL. Plus, LUNA!
