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.

I read all the books...as they came out though. Been a while since then though ^^; I always enjoyed the world she created and would like to get to explore a hogwarts of our own.

So...I'm interested but don't be surprised if I don't remember what all the spells do or who all the characters are.

I'm interested as well. I've always been a huge Harry Potter nerd; I've read all of the books and seen every single movie.
Count me in!

Characters will be new ones (our own) and spells... well Hogwarts will teach you ;) right? (if you play a first year, you don't gotta know any spell beforehand anyway)

@FreeElk Only one spell you need to remember...


That's such a beautiful fond used! But I am sorry to have to remind you, at Hogwarts, unfortunately, such spells are not allowed. Most of the time at least...

Count me as interested as long as it's High Casual or better quality. I love the HP universe. ^^


I was gonna go with Casual to High Casual. You should be able to write a bunch of words to form a couple of sentences with a few details to make a lot of sense. ;)

@bishop I do remember that one! Though I think that means I'm dead now before the story starts :p unless someone loves me enough and it bounces off...then I just get a lightning scar.


That, unfortunately, is a thing that only happened once, ever, in history. I am sorry to disappoint you. You could be a ghost though? ;)

Questions to everyone!


1) Is anyone interested in GMing the stuff? I would take over as the GM, if no one is interested, but then you guys will have to bounce after my whip ;) I am not a necessarily strict GM, I like to include people in decisions (as it shows here...), but I can get pretty tight about certain things (staying canon for example, not overpowering your characters in the means of power, popularity and development, ect)

2) I assume the setting being Hogwarts is set in stone. So would you guys prefer it to be any age (1st year to 7th year) or we all start at the same year (1st for example) and grow up together?

3) In what time would you want to play? Any time from the 'just opened the school Hogwarts' to '2017, right now, Hogwarts' is possible. I personally always prefer more of a 2017 setting.

4) Do you want the RP to include meddling from the GM as a kind of 'moderator' of a story / the grades, classes, events / bringing characters together through occasional, random story-based 'quests' or 'adventures' or the like? Or just leave it completely up to each character to form a random story, leave it completely free and see where it goes? Ps.: the story (if one is wanted) would never overshadow the choices / free will of a player, there'll always be enough room with me as a GM to explore on your own, throw in ideas or requests, discuss and disagree with me.

Thank you to everyone interested. I hope to start this soon!

@KahleenCuthald So we're all playing students? I couldn't be a professor?

Also,
1) I'd be interested in co-GMing - I can GM but I'd rather be a second.
2) Seems good.
3) Indifferent
4) the first option sounds good.

1) I'm not that great of a Co-GM, so I'll leave this alone.

2) I think that we should have everyone start off at the same year, whether it be first or not. It'd be easier to interact with one another.

3) I'd personally prefer a more modern setting, as well. I'd be cool with anything, though!

4) Meddling from the GM

1. Not a great GM either, so you guys have at it.

2. Any year is preferable, but an do all first year if necessary. As a reminder, certain activities are off-limits for First Years. Things like Quidditch (Harry was lucky, damn lucky.) and Hogsmeade are off limits for First Years, and the latter is still off limits for Second Years.

3. Either or. Getting into the root history of Hogwarts would be interesting, but unnecessary.

4. A little out of column A and a little out of column B?

Let's say..even if everyone writes 2 posts per week, if we're left to our own machinations we won't even get out of our initial "hello-nice-to-meet-you" conversations after a month. Had a casual RP and even after 6 months of everyone posting thrice per week we still didn't get past the first week of IC time. So I vote that we need time skips. Say, after an event is over, a few more conversations later there is a time skip to the beginning of our next event. We can discuss how our characters connected with each other during that time OOC.

Now for the events. What were the things that captivated you while reading the books and/or watching the movies? The action, the mystery, the magic, the quest line. Each one of them had a main quest line. From finding the evil thing/person that resides in the castle and is killing students to fighting enemies out in the muggle world or finding a magical item crucial to the quest. From the beginning til the end, the main characters handled challenge after challenge not a moment of boring.
