Harry Potter and the Rise of the Dark Lord
That year was supposed to be the end of everything. We were about to head towards Hogwarts to end it all. We were to find a horcrux and face Voldemort. We were late. The Light, as we call ourselves, had already destroyed two horcruxes before we broke the locket. And the break in to Gringotts was hardly a quiet affair. So when Bellatrix alerted her master of the loss of another horcrux, Riddle didn’t hesitate to move on the final hold of the light, the castle meant for learning where he had stored one of his many horcruxes, Hogwarts. He couldn’t risk losing another and having the target come closer to him. Nagini after all was usually close by at all times and her death would mean four pieces of his soul obliterated. Not even including if they did manage to destroy the goblet or the diadem.So he decided to make his stand and Magical Britain fell.
This RP was inspired by this group of pictures.
This is the timeline that is set in stone as of right now:
- Gringotts Bank was robbed by the Golden Trio. However, instead of heading to Hogsmead, they lay low for a few days. This was a mistake.
- Voldemort attacks the castle, intending to reclaim his diadem. Knowing Harry is not in the castle due to the Horcrux in Harry, he doesn’t wait and instead storms the Castle immediately and without warning. Details of the battle are unknown as of yet. Casualties are as followed: Minerva McGonnagol, Fillius Flitwick, Trybel Trewlany, Remus Lupin, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Pomena Sprout, and Horrace Slughorn. Madam Pomfrey and Hagrid are considered MIA as neither can be confirmed dead at this moment.
All events up until the Gringotts Bank will be considered canon. I am currently looking for canon characters that are both “Dark” and “Light” as well as a limited number of OCs (probably about 3 or so more depending on ideas you might have). Keep in mind that this will be an International RP. The main focus in the beginning will be Britain, but keep in mind that for the purposes of this RP, Britain is essentially lost save for the underground rebellion. Foreign supporters may come in, and maybe another group could even attempt to ally themselves with old Tom. Just tossin plot bunnies out there.I will take all Canons listed below no matter what. I will also accept Dark OCs (Probably like 4 more right now) and Light OCs (Currently two spots open).
- Draco Malfoy
- Lucius Malfoy
- Narcissa Malfoy
- Any Canon not listed will most likely be accepted but these are priority for me.
- Hermione Granger (RoTWS)
- Neville Longbottom (RoTWS)
- Ron Weasley (Ember Star)
- Luna Lovegood (Ember Star)
- Ginny Weasley (Miss Kaia)
- Bellatrix Lestrange (RainbowRian)
- Astoria Greengrass (Ladia2287)
- Harry Potter (Rapt)
I have two co-GMs: Ember Star and Persephone 325. This is intended as a long running RP running years of Game Time. As such elements I wish to implement: Torture and Non-con. I intend for people to get caught at some point or another. All non-con scenes will be consensual! Just because you are signing up for this doesn’t mean you are giving consent for non-con! While I suspect that most torture will be kept to the Cruciatus curse, there is the possibility for knives to get involved as well as the potentiality for more psychological torture.
That being said:
- This will be in the Non-Con section barring suggestions that it get moved to Extreme for safety reasons because of the Torture.
- All gender types and Sexualities will be accepted.
- Canon Players: I expect you to have fun. The younger canons are going into what we expect to be college age. Any experimentation you want to have, as long as it’s mutual between players, go for it.
- This RP is not a sex RP: This is meant to be highly emotional situation so sex will happen. It’s not the focus. Story/Character Development is.
- One character for the moment please! I'm still relatively new as a GM after all and would not like to be overwhelmed.
- I would like this to be a once a week thing, but I know that this is unrealistic for at the very least myself. However, a month without a word and I might start to worry. :)
- I would hope this is implied but GM's word is law.
Rules for Original characters:
- No giving of random powers without GM approval.
- They will not be in Voldie's Inner circle if they're on the Dark Side.
- They will not be closely related to any of the Canon characters. Determined by GM's discretion/importance of the canon character.
- No magical pets. Period.
- If questionable, ask me or don't do it.
- Foreign OCs are allowed and even encouraged. The end goal on Voldie's part is World Domination after all.
I've decided on keeping most of the old character sheet. On that note, OCs/Canon characters with lesser known backstories, I will expect more from you in the Backstory department than let's say.... Harry Potter. I'm assuming if you are in this RP you've at least watched
the movies if not read the books and have a working knowledge of the universe. If any questions arise, make use of the wiki pages available or ask your resident HP knowledge guru. :)

Please PM GM and co-GMs for approval before posting! :)OOC
is up and running! This is the next step after your sheet has been approved. Please post here next.
Note: if this looks familiar, I recently attempted a system version of this game. Due to an unexpected event I have decided to revamp it without one. :)
