September 1957. A new school year begins at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and as far as the students and faculty are concerned, it'll be a fairly uneventful and standard year. As uneventful as the wizarding world can be, anyway - barring the soporific classes of Professor Binns, and the nearly equally as mind-numbing studying sessions set in place for upcoming exams, life at Hogwarts was not known to be dull. Between the wonders of performing magic in various classes; fighting for the Quidditch and House cup; witnessing Professor Kettleburn fight hand-to-claw with an annoyed Griffin for the third time that year, and students attempting to join the exclusive "Slug Club" to rub shoulders with the exquisite and famous... there is plenty of excitement to be found at any time in the ancient school. However, this year in particular brings with it new adventures for the students. Some of it planned, made to teach and fill with wonder. Other parts of it more sinister, and sure to sow seeds of dissent and paranoia amongst the school.
Welcome all, to another year at Hogwarts! Our plot will start off on the Hogwarts Express, approaching the school as a way for everyone to settle into their character's shoes nice and comfortably. I won't give away too much of the overall plot as of yet, as I'd like to keep some surprises. Below you'll find information about the lore, rules for playing, and the character sheet. I hope you all enjoy this roleplay!
Link to the OOC is here. We haven't launched the IC as of yet, but would love to see if anyone in the advanced section is interested at all. :)
