"Bump in the Night" RP {Harry Potter}
>>>>>Note: Does not follow the books completely<<<<<<
 
GROUP SYNOPSIS – MUST READ
[do not be lazy and message one of the mods to ask what the group is about, just read the information below please]
-----
 
Like the legends of Merlin, the tale of Harry Potter and his infamously victorious defeat of the worlds darkest wizard Lord Voldemort has slowly begin to fall to that of stories told around campfires to inspire and scare those with too weak of a will to survive the dark. Though he still lives and breathes, that of the wizarding world has remained relatively peaceful despite a few bumps in the road with a few vampire attacks to Hogsmeade and various events around the world; but all in all, the wizarding world had found peace. Yet that no longer means that Dark Magic has ceased to exist.
 
In the underworld of crime, there exists what Aurors and many other members of the Ministry of Magic have come to call “the Dark Magic Mafia”; a mass collection of witches and wizards practicing illegal magic, trading black-magic magic artifacts, committing kidnapping – making people go missing, and even committing murders. No one is sure who is behind it all, but its wise to watch your back when you find yourself in a dark alley or at night when you’re out and about.
 
Yet that is not the only thing to fear. Hunters from across the world have begun to take up in arms, wishing to kill – and even wipe out – any and all half-breeds from the world, even including; vampires, werewolves, sirens and a few other species. Goblins have begun to doubt their loyalties to the wizarding world for fear of a war breaking out between the creatures and the /more/ human population of the wizarding world.
 
The Ministry has also begun taking precautions to protect muggle-borns from their rather anti-magic families, even if magic has still managed to stay hidden from the majority of the population of the world. A new law has been enacted to take those muggle-borns in life-threatening or in dangerous situations and house them in Hogmseade’s very own Loveless Hotel during vacation times (including the entirety of summer) to protect them, though that still has offered some more problems than it has truly helped.
 
True as ever, many snobbish pure-blooded families still try to claim superiority in high society and wishing to push out anyone of a muggle-born – or even a half-blood nature – out of the schooling system, still deeming them unfit to have the chance to be schooled in the art of wizardry.
 
With the addition of the fears of the outside world and adult hood, inside of Hogwarts, there is still all manner of regular drama, working past your limits to make the grade, and simply trying to survive a fair-share of bullies that might steal your money or homework and leave you in the dust. Then there comes all the chaos of being a teenager in general in a world of unicorns, wild beasts that could eat you whole, and dangerous classmates that will do almost anything to get ahead.
 
Hope that you’re strong enough to survive as a wizard or find yourself in the good-graces of someone that’s in a position of power to protect you. The best of luck to you young wizards, I pray you survive the worst of it.

~~~More Group Story Info~~~
Creatures + etc:
--------------------------

[Please read all of this before auditioning.]
~ RP RULES ~
- Do NOT automatically start rping/writing stories until your character is accepted into the group. Sometimes we request that you edit your information/model – it is nothing personal against you, but some things are already in place/used and cannot be changed to automatically fit what you want. You also must tag one of us because sometimes we don’t automatically see it.
- We do NOT accept sets with pictures-only, unless you have a very long story like some of us write, we do not accept sets into the group unless they actually have /clothes/ on them.
- You may have a MAX of FOUR characters to begin with [this does not include parents]. Then if you want more, you can discuss it with a moderator.
- If you have younger characters [11-14] they HAVE to be 11 when they enter school – and no younger; just because you’re character may be ‘super smart’ does not grant them entry in to school early and they cannot leave until they are at least 17 years old, and may not skip grades/years.
- Please stay PG-13, if you want do get darker/raunchier, you have to talk to a mod or RP stuff out via p.m.s. Do not RP out sex, it’s…just gross.
- If you copy a set you will be told to change it or you will be spoken to and potentially kicked out. If you use someone else’s layout, you have to get permission from that person and credit on each set you use that layout.
- Do not ganging up on people. If you feel that someone is, you can talk to a mod for help.
- Just because a character may be a professor – or headmaster/headmistress – does not mean you can make up anything you and about what they say or do. They are still characters of other RPers and it is incredibly rude to write something that is not true. If this happens you will be asked to amend your writing or what you RP or you will be asked to leave the group.
- RPers can only make sets to RP on that are dorm rooms, and the houses of your characters. The Room of Requirement, and etc are only made by the mods unless you are given permission to make them.
- Any violation and you will be spoken to, and if problems persist you will be asked to leave the group.
 
~ Story guidelines ~
- This RP takes place when the famous Harry Potter is now a grandfather, making him early 60s
- Do not automatically put who your character is dating or who their friends are unless you’ve discussed it with others those characters belong to.
- Characters can have piercings, colored hair, tattoos. We have chavs, emos, preps, hard-core partiers, and etc. The more variety with everyone’s characters the more fun things will be!!
- Straight, gay, bisexual characters ARE allowed and greatly welcomed. Black, white, Asian, Indian – it doesn’t matter what race, we encourage multi-culture. You can also use singers from bands, TV actors, movie actors, whoever that you can find pictures for. You can even use yourself if you wish to.
- Your character CAN have pets but do not put things like Elephants and giant tigers – because those are too big for the school and the classrooms. A tiger would have to stay at home…
- The students are NOT required to wear a uniform, but have to have a patch/ring/pin to identify their house as part of their outfits; keep the outfits reasonably covered – this isn’t a school for harlots.
- You ARE allowed into common rooms that your characters are not apart of, but you have to be invited in by someone in that house. But please try to keep to your own common rooms.
- When it comes the RoR; in the book, only the people inside can let people in unless you're the first one there. You can't randomly drop in at random, and have to ask to be let in if you are not the first one in there.
- Not EVERYONE is a pure-blood; half-bloods and muggle-borns are more than accepted.
- Witches/Wizards WILL outnumber the werewolves, veelas, and etc, so be aware of that. You can have your characters be veelas, and etc – but you HAVE to clear it with @vintagevampire19-dear-porcelain
…no, vampires cannot be students to Hogwarts and have to follow the guidelines of HPwiki
- We want to try to keep an equal amount of boys to girls ratio. So please do not have all of one or the other.
- When writing stories, if it is something ‘BIG’ or it affects/has to do with the professors, message a mod first before writing.
- You CAN rp with each other without a mod having to be on; don’t feel like we’re “big brother” and have to watch you.
- Remember, that you can have mean/snobby characters. Not everyone is bubbly and nice.
 
~ NOTE ~
- If you are LEAVING the group or CANNOT get on – family problems, school, etc – you must message us, don’t just make a set and tag us; so we don’t get rid of your character or give your character’s model to someone else.
- We require a minimum of one set a week, or at least 4 sets a month. And at least one story – short or long, it doesn’t matter.
