Hey, everyone.

I have had the need for a decent HP world roleplay for a bit now. The idea is to stay as close as possible to the given rules by JK (no changing of given facts, that means).

Is anyone interested to even rp in this world anymore? I am not sure if people are still into this, rp wise.

You can leave a suggestion / preference of the era you'd like to rp in, the place (Hogwarts, Ilvermonry, out of school (aka adult life), ect), everything that comes to your mind that feels nice to you or that you prefer. Or even stuff you dislike (dislike the golden trio era as a rp setting? Tell us.)

Firstly, this is a simply call to see if people are still interested and therefore has no concrete plot, time, setting, rules or whatever.

I would also love to know if you would be up to gm it or co-gm it.




Some loose ideas from me:

- Hogwarts (most obvious choice)

There would be discovering your house by the sorting hat (the older students get a house from the gm as well, whoever chooses to take upon that role). I find it more realistic that way. We can write a summary of our character's personality and where it'll take us.

- Adult Life

We choose a character's job, maybe even built a family / married life with someone else. We all live close by each other (same town!) so we have to interact with everyone. Even family rivalries are able. Jobs are gonna be incliuded into the plot, not just "side notes" to mention.

On that note it would also be possible to have a more fleshed out plot about 2 or 3 families that have a backstory and are rivals but have to encounter each other on a daily basis. Maybe two of the adult kids of the families can be married and are trying to somehow get some piece into it. I'm sure there's much opportunities with a plot like that.

- Group of Aurors / MACUSA Body For Regulation and Protection of Magical Creatures

A group of circa 5 work in the same team and face challanges at work and private life. (This would be for a rather small group though). Finding criminal wizards or rescuing and saving magical creatures.

I'm one of those people that don't know too much about the Harry Potter world as far as the lore and rules go of everything but I always enjoyed the idea of it. I participated in a few of these type of roleplays and I always had fun even though they often didn't last as long as we could hope.

I personally like the idea of the Hogwarts life- It always appealed to me to have a group of people go from their first year until their last together with huge character growth and plenty of plot ideas to come as the years go by- and friendships and enemies reveal themselves.

Either way :) Count me interested, and keeping an eye on this

Currently re-reading the books, so this seems to be the perfect time to join an HP RP. Count me in as well!! The Hogwarts or Adult one sounds best to me!

I feel the same, to be honest. The lack of active HP RP's has been kind of disappointing, so it'd be good to have at least one on, so count me as interested.

As for specifics, I generally like playing the Hogwarts setting either as a student or a teacher, mostly because it keeps things organized enough that no one loses their heads, but not necessarily linear so there's still room to branch out, but that's just from my experience.

That's literally the reason why I thought lets do it. Rereading it and discussing themes together - I love the idea of the worldwide book club.
