Hogwarts - interest check
« on: September 21, 2009, 06:58:58 PM »
If a game were to be started with present-day Hogwarts (ten years after Deathly Hallows) would anybody be interested? Canon characters would only be professors and such while students would be created.

I'd be interested to learn more about this setting you propose.

Here is a very rough draft of what I was thinking. So far it's just a couple people that have PMd me so I'll invest more time/thought into an introduction once I have more.

Alright well right now I'm just putting out feelers. It doesn't really seem like there's a lot of Harry Potter enthusiests so I thought that the first few people who show interest and I could get together on a little thread and discuss maybe a large-scale plot, whoever might want canon characters for administrative duty, and just maybe spreading the word to fellow enthusiests. If we can get enough people then we can work from there.

As I said, I am only testing the waters so this is all a very rough draft. Excuse me if it isn't nicely put together.

Basically, as I said, it's 10 years after the war (which would be 2008 if I remember correctly but I'll have to check) and Hogwarts has finally reopened its doors having had massive damage during the attack. In recent years, wizards and witches fled Britain for more peaceful countries and only now are they returning. The Ministry of Magic (headed by a canon character, though I don't rightly know who) is reformed and is trying to embrace all races and birthrights. The future seems bright, however many are still not at peace with the way things ended and an undercurrent of unease has rooted itself into the halls of Hogwarts.

I have also laid claim to the canon character, Hermione Granger who is the youngest Headmistress in the school's history.

I could be persuaded.  I might even have a character concept to work with.  Would this be an adult game?  If so, I assume that we'd be playing later-year students?

The students would most definitely be later-year. Seventh years, preferably or a late sixth year (as in somebody like Hermione who's birthday was too late to be admitted into her age year so she's the oldest.) I guess the age that students are accepted could even be bumped to go with the new structure of the wizarding world making the seventh years eighteen or nineteen. That way the ministry could keep a longer eye on the younger generation, watching for some signs of people who sympathize with the old Voldemort regime. This change could also allow more variety in the ages people could choose from. Everyone having to be seventh-years might be a bit dull.

Well the site allows for characters of age 16+.  Since the older characters would mostly be no more than 27, it's not such a huge gap, really.

When you get a board up, lemme know, and I'll throw my concept in your direction.  It could be lots of fun, methinks :)

Great! Then I'm going to take a little bit to sort out the current list of people interested and then get back to you guys. If any of you have input, however, feel free to send me a PM. This is very raw and unformed so far so I'd appreciate it.

You'll be paying for that, you realise...

Perhaps my upper-level student will have to punish the headmistress for letting the House Elf situation get so far out of hand...

And what will he do about the hippogriffs and dementors? I do believe that they, too, are out in your yard. And rememer: I'm always one step ahead.

I think I made a list somewhere of all the bad things that I want to do with the young headmistress.  Just remember, the further ahead you step, the deeper you get...

I think that the hippogriffs and dementors warrant item number #612 on the list.  Does anyone have a good sticking charm, and a barrel of flying monkeys I could borrow?

No but you could borrow my giant squid.

And my headmistress could send whatever you throw at her down to the grindylows.

Yes, but quite useless. Actually I'm quite surprised James picked a stag over the squid for a laugh...

Useless?  If manga's taught us anything, it's that 20-foot-long tentacles are never useless!

Still looking, I'll keep you posted. So far we have all males and I'm the only female. That may present a problem. But I've had enough interest shown that I'll start working on a more in-depth description.

Hm, well that's definitely a problem. I wouldn't be opposed to playing a girl, but I've never done it before, so I don't know how good I would be.
