I must say, this scenario sounds awesome, but, well, I'm a tad bit overwhelmed with all of its actual awesomeness. I'm going to pour over all of the fantastic details and do my best to come up with something cool, but it could take me a little while. Lol. Wish me luck!

Cheers,
Tony

If you have any questions just let us know either here or in pm as Rebelle and I should be able to get back to pretty timely.  We know there is a lot to read and we tried not to be overwhelming but we also wanted players to be "in the know" for a lot of things so they could push their own adventures and story should they chose to.  Welcome to the game!

Thank you. You'll be the first to know if I have any questions or hit any roadblocks. I love the character creation process, I just need to wrap my head around all of the details to get them just right.

Just found my first issue with my own work and that was that Faction was missing from the sheet.  I have adjusted it in the recruitment thread and creation thread accordingly.  That said putting "none" in here is acceptable or putting in which Faction you wish to be actively recruiting your character so that other players or staff can try and get your character to join their cause is perfectly fine as well.

Looking at the CS...is  "Wand License" basically just a license to use a wand like a wizarding version of a drivers license?

Offline Twisted iN Tux

There appears to be a wand application AND permit!

Although, I certainly have zero knowledge if such a thing exists in this AU. *looks to the GMs*

Offline Caela

I would have noticed something like that in the information posts at the beginning of this thread and wouldn't have needed to ask the question.

Offline Twisted iN Tux

Aaaand, now I think this brief interaction has sealed the deal on the type of character I'm going to make! Wand Permit Officer. *nods* Either that, or a Gossip Correspondent for The Obliviator. Nope! Something entirely different. *grin*

I was just noting that it does appear to be a thing in the Potter Universe, which I would assume would translate to this AU as well...or not.

Apparition License is more like a "driver's license" whereas a wand license is kind of like a Carry Conceal Permit or a Firearms Owners Permit (in a few states), it gives you the ability to carry your wand outside of your home or school enviroment.  In the US until you are 18 you can't get one, which means if a student is carrying a wand outside school grounds they can be charged for illegally doing so.  Certain crimes also could suspend licenses as directed by MACUSA.  As with most kinds of government oversight there are two sides, those who see it as necessary and those that think restricting such an inherent right to wizards and witches is a overstep and should be repealed.

I actually googled family crests after choosing the family name and looked to see if there was one I liked for the Greysons. 

However I have this generator I love for a lot of things (used it to help name some locations)  that has a coat of arms generator

That's wonderful news to hear!!

You'll need to redo her or add on the additional information  we seek and resubmit.

I figured, I might have to change a few things. I might have a few updates. How many pure bloods do you guys have potentially?

3 potentially at the moment and reading between the lines possibly 4.  We're really not limiting them though, so if you want one go right ahead :D

I actually have a question, too, and forgive me if I've missed this in all of your awesome history: Does the Salem Institute have houses that they sort their students into or not?

I did notice that there appears to be a Danvers and Andover branch (house?) of the school...or at least I'm assuming that's what they are, seeing that the Gallow Family has alumni from each. Any info you can give would be greatly appreciated! I feel like there may be more info out there that I'm somehow missing, perhaps from the previous iteration of this scenario?

Cheers,
Tony

Triple post FTW!

https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=255826.msg13167067#msg13167067

There is the schooling information now available to all :)  I also plugged it into the character creation. 

But to also answer your question - yes, the students of Salem are sorted into houses via a large lantern (think a cousin to the Sorting Hat).

Sorry about that Twisted - thank you so much for bringing it to our attention!
