A venture into the world of Harry Potter-Upon Death's Door
Hello everyone, I would like to offer the opportunity to explore the world of the Harry Potter novels and films. It is my intention to weave a storyline of our own creation with characters created and portrayed by those interested. I have a general background plot outline which will serve as a theme throughout the story but will not be the only part of the story that unfolds I hope as players will unlikely get themselves involved in many other stories in the course of things.
The general themes of this story will be those often encountered in the novels themselves with a strong bent on mystery and the unknown in the plots outline. This will not be a purely adult based storyline but I would never rule out such themes only ask that they be treated in moderation and that they make sense. This is supposed to be a story with many themes after all not just an erotic script, with this in mind I would also ask that all characters be of a mature age. Anyone wishing to be students at Hogwarts will be in there final years at school, Characters will not be expected to be students but it is an option. Certain concepts and backgrounds maybe restricted if I believe they will conflict with the story and the overall theme.
Although this is a venture into the world of Harry Potter you will not be allowed to portray the main characters themselves and will be expected to create your own. Also it is unlikely that many prominent characters will feature other than in passing.
The story itself will at times rely on a system for resolving certain situations and the success or outcome of certain task and acts involving magic. I am working on trying to modify a simple magic based system that I hope will keep with the theme. The system I will be relying on mostly will be the White Wolf Old World of Darkness system at present I am working on adapting a few things and creating a character sheet to make things a littler easier to keep track of things. This will not be a game that relies heavily on a system however and the system will only been used when it is deemed absolutely necessary.
I won't be starting this until all is prepared obviously and I have a cast of characters to participate in the storyline and interact with one and other. If you are interested or have any questions please reply in this thread. I will likely be updating this topic as things progress.
Bellow is an introduction to my little plot line think of it as the opening scene of a film or the text on the back of a book the first page in a novel whatever you like. Also included is a bit of silly decorative theme I cooked up. ^.^
Deep within the bowels of the Ministry of Magic in the department of mysteries is a room known to some as the Death Chamber. The room itself is large and echoing, scarcely lit benches run around the side of the room descending in steep steps like an amphitheatre. An eerie still atmosphere and cold chill penetrates the room and in the centre of the room in a sunken stone pit roughly twenty feet deep perched atop a stone dais looms the Veil. The Veil itself is an ancient cracked and crumbling stone archway. The Veil is a barrier between the land of the living and that of the dead to those touched by death a thick sheath of mist occupies its passage, whispers of the departed can be heard close to the Veil and some say there presence can be felt. One fact that until this night was believed absolute was that nothing could pass from the Veil into the land of the living. And it was this nights events that would throw the Ministry into panic and bring questions to the minds of wizards and witches everywhere. It happened at midnight one of the officials of the department of mysteries was investigating a mist that had begun to poor forth from Veil roughly half an hour before midnight itself. Alfonzo Firewalker had worked for the department for over half his life and he had never seen anything quite so strange or that he himself considered quite so fascinating. Alfonzo was a short stout man standing just under 5ft he was middle aged and kept a trimmed and styled beard that made his position as one of the Unspeakable's seam far more sinister than he himself actually was. He dressed himself in long dark purple robes and rested a silver rimmed monocle on one eye, he was busy attempting to study the apparently leaking mist and collect samples when the disturbance took place. There was piercing wail and a sound similar to a sudden gust of wind, standing up startled Alfonzo turned in time to see the shocking sight. The archway of the Veil was billowing with mist it seeped out into the room parting from the figure who had appeared there. A slender feminine figure dressed in sleek black and greyish toned dress and cloak a wide brimmed hat atop her head wisps of dark hair visible the majority of her face hidden behind a think ebony scarf. Her deep green eyes where what caught Alfonso's attention if it had not been for the lurking silhouettes behind her the sudden appearance of a sleek ashen wand in her hand and the sound of her voice he would of continued to stare. In hindsight of the events that night things may have perhaps gone better if he had, as she spoke her words where garbled and meaningless to Alfonzo and he took her posture and the looming figures behind her as a threat and acted. Alfonso whipped out his thorn wood wand and drew it upon her yelling as he cast “Expelliarmus!” The feminine figure stood slightly perplexed as her wand flew from her hand and skittered across the floor. She spoke once more her words once again tirade of unknown meaning, Alfonzo pointed his wand at her and spoke “How did you get in here, this is a restricted are ! Who are you ?” She peered intently at him for a moment and the begun to slowly walk down the stairs away from the archway. “I demand to know, you should not be in here!” Alfonzo scowled at her and thrust his wand at her menacingly. She regarded him with an icy stare and continued to walk forward her gaze wandering the room, Alfonzo shook his wand at her his lips begun to form the workings of a spell as he aimed. She raised one hand swiftly and spoke a swift verse of words that resounded with magical power a power quite different to anything Alfonzo had ever encountered. The mists that had been pooling in the room suddenly seamed to rise up and multiply smothering the room in a hazy greyish fog, Alfonzo felt a chill creep up his spine and felt his strength being leached away as an incredible icy chill overcame him it felt as if the mist was smothering and coiling about him. Within moments he had dropped his wand and fallen to the floor shivering he watched through the gloom with blurry vision as three silhouettes passed him by and then the world descended into darkness.
I look forward to answering any questions or querrys.
