It has been seventeen years since the fall of the Boy Who Lived at the hands of the Dark Lord. The fugitive Harry Potter and his two associates had attempted to break into the Ministry of Magic to steal an amulet from an employee there but they were unable to escape in time... the Ministry was locked down and when the Dark Lord arrived he executed all three of them, curious that it took the Killing Curse twice to put down the Boy Who Lived permanently but in the end Harry Potter was dead, his death demoralizing the entire Order of The Phoenix and though resistance continued for several years nothing of substance was ever achieved.
As the rest of the Wizarding World watched silently the Death Eaters were quick to establish and formalize their control over Great Britain, Muggle Borns quickly becoming little more then slaves to Pure Bloods while those of Mixed Blood heritage were second class citizens under the new Regime.
Six years later the expansion started, it is believed that there had been agents of the Dark Lord in France, Spain, and Germany for a significant time, sowing the seeds and preparing the way for the swift take overs... Voldemort had set his eyes on the rest of the wizarding world. There is no formal resistance to what he is doing, around the world his policies of Pure Blood superiority has a large number of supporters, especially among those in positions of power.
Now the hungry gaze of the Dark Lord has fallen on North America, a new generation of wizards prepare for the struggle ahead.
The year is 2014, you are a witch or wizard in New York City, perhaps you fled from Europe in the face of growing Death Eater power or maybe you have live in New York for most of your life.
Are you working to prevent the coming coup or do you want to see the Dark Lords power spread?
Its up to you.
This game would be a darker game, falling into the Extreme category, a setting where slavery is a very real thing, where breeding programs have been brought into existence in an attempt to increase the number of witches and wizards in the world, where the line between terrorist and freedom fighter is a blurred one.
Canon characters would be in the background and may be used in the game itself... but only under certain circumstances...
Its a chance to explore the Harry Potter universe if it had taken a darker and much nastier turn, an AU where your imagination can run wild.
At this point I am only seeing what interest there is, seeing who else would like to be a part of the game and of course seeing what other ideas someone might have.
