Hogwarts
« on: January 08, 2011, 08:52:53 AM »
So awhile ago on here (a long while ago) I ran a Hogwarts free for here, and apparently there has been some interest in ressurecting the idea. So I am posting this to see the level of interest before I formally ask for ressurection or restart the game entirely :)

I have discovered that there are a LOT of different takes on adult Hogwarts games, and would love to hear more.

I'm with Kckolbe.

I am interested, but would really like to know more about what the story/game would entail?

Being a Harry Potter fanatic I am interested but I also would like to know about a plot, is there one or is it just people mingling through the school?

I'm interested, though I hope it will focus on more than just Gryffindor.

Good call Wolfy.  I tend to play Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff (though I hate the name) for that reason.

You can always read through the previous posts from 5 years ago *snicker* We did non canon characters, even had a Goblet of Fire tournament. We followed the books fairly closely as of the finish I (as Albus) had not died. So we did bypass Canon some. I would have to reread to see who we had, but it was a lot of fun. I was doing a house cup (and would continue to.) As far as plot goes we can pick up where we are right now in "The epilogue." The time after Harry left Hogwarts but before he became an adult, leaves us a very open playing field with what is going on and what darkness may still befoul the steps of Hogwarts.

Now I am considering just starting a new replacement game, to leave the one that exsists in the archives. But the rules would stay the same as would the character sheet and so on. i would aim for a balanced game set after Harry Potter has left Hogwarts, the only Canon characters would be staff.

Given that you seem to enjoy hosting contests (which sounds awesome) and this is a freeform game, do you have some form of moderation?

Also, are the normal ages in effect, meaning we all need to be upperclassmen to be "site legal?"

So I'm assuming it would have to start at least in the 5th or 6th year for our characters. If you are starting a new one you have any idea how it would start?

Well it appears we will be relaunching soon then :) Yes characters have to be 6th to 7th year to fufill site rules I think to manage that more formally, we did 7th year only. The game was always a free form, with light moderation, occassional plot points dropped in, we decided against any actual classes as that was boring after a day, (who wants to roleplay actually taking a class. lol) So most of the story happened outside the class rooms, in Hogsmeade, or amongst the grounds. some basic Canon rules are in place (like no boys in the girls dorms and vice versa.) , no magic outside the classroom (unless supervised) and yes I know that rule will be broken a lot. :) I will have a new game up and linked for you guys likely by Tuesday, I need tow ork on some plot ideas to at least give you all a story to freeform about.

We haven't started and his last game had a large group of players, so I imagine he's still taking more.  Also, none of us are "in" yet.

I'm in again.

I'll be bringing back Xavier as long as faculty characters are still an option.
