Life changed in 1930 for every wizard and witch in London. Gellert Grindelwald killed Albus Dumbledore on a muggle street and rose to power. Nothing is like it should be. It wasn't long before Grindelwald extended his power to the muggle world as well as the magical world. Halfbloods, muggleborns, and even muggles live in fear. Breaking boundaries and rewriting old laws, he controlled everything he could see. Unhappy with just that, he stretched his power, spanning countries.

The Class of the Chrysanthemum rose early against the dark dictator, only to be broken into factions when their leader, Cassiopeia Black, met her untimely death at the end of Grindelwald's wand. Still the Class of the Chrysanthemum fought on in factions, not knowing who to trust.

It's war, but no one seems to know it.

The game is set in 2001 currently. Grindelwald's is coming out publicly, eventually, with his relationship with Vlad Tepelus. The plot and arcs depend and focus on the reactions of the characters over Grindwald's decisions, his new leadership role and loyalty, and the actions he takes as a consequences that effects all. The plots also focus on relationships of current characters that unfold.

Reopening March 5th, 2012!

Most wanted: Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Nymphadora Tonks, Andromeda Tonks, Ted Tonks, Narcissa Malfoy, Luna Lovegood, Parvati Patil, Padma Patil, Alicia Spinnet, Seamus Finnigan, Dean Thomas, Rabastan Lestrange, Rodolphus Lestrange, Pansy Parkinson, Fred Weasley, Ron Weasley, and many more.

Accepting canon characters, muggles, and [magical/muggle] original characters!

There's a revolution coming, and the Brotherhood wants you to join them. For centuries, wizards have been ruling this world, building their wealth and power off the backs of muggles. It's time to end the power of the wizards and create a new world.

Those who aren't with us should be warned. We are not asking for change politely. It is coming, and those who oppose it will be sorry. We fear nothing and we will stop for nothing, because we have the power of justice and truth on our side. Those who cling futility to the coattails of a mad king can burn with him. Those who join us will see a world of peace and prosperity such as has never been known before.

Do you have the courage to make a better world?


Most Wanted Characters:
Bellatrix Lestrange, Hermione Granger, Parvati Patil, Charlie Weasley, Gideon and Fabian Prewett, active Brotherhood members, active Knights of Walpurgis

Which side will you join?

3:18 am - Crescendo

crescendomods
The Game
The year is 1981. Voldemort is still at large. The Order is hunting down Horcruxes. Sirius Black isn't in Azkaban. The Potters aren't dead. And The Longbottom's are nowhere near being admitted to St. Mungo's because of those damn Lestranges. Why not? Because we decided to throw canon out the window and re-write the story for ourselves and it's been one Hell of a story so far and it's only going to get better!

Over at Crescendo, we believe in letting you, the writer, determine where the plot goes based on character interaction and plots, so literally anything can happen. We believe in giving you the freedom to let things develop naturally, instead of trying to force your characters into a small box to make things work with what happened in the books. We've been open for nearly six months and we don't plan on going anywhere, so come on over, take a seat, and drive the plot a bit to see where you can take us next.
Current Events
Voldemort and his Death Eaters are doing their best to stir up terror to get the resistance against them to stop. Katherine Rosier is doing all that she can so Millicent Bagnold will be recalled as Minister, including murdering members of her own family who are sullying the family name, so Voldemort can take over, she can clear Bellatrix's name, and so a Rosier can become Minister. Alice Longbottom accidentally killed Alecto Carrow in battle. Bellatrix Lestrange is running the Ministry, unknown to anyone, because she is the puppet master controlling Minister Bagnold. Voldemort is on to Regulus and has a plan to kill the Potters, steal Neville, and to get his hands on the prophecy. Most of the characters are in hiding and hating it, leading them to come up with creative ways to kill Voldemort, not to mention, the Order knows about the Horcruxes thanks to one Regulus Black, and they've already destroyed one all because the Lovegoods are B.A.M.F.'s and they need to find the rest!
The Players
We're currently seeking dedicated writers who are interested in character development, participating in game-wide plots, changing canon through their actions and interactions, and truly exploring the 'what-ifs' of the HP-Verse that canon ruined for us.
Coming Soon
Bellatrix Lestrange is going to screw Voldemort over, clear her own name, and take over the Ministry so she can finally have the 'right' side in charge, without all of Voldemort's little terror games slowing things down. Voldemort is going to try to kill Rodolphus and Bellatrix's child, force Narcissa to take the Dark Mark, and try to get Regulus to turn over his own brother to be killed. Not only will he be pissing off his own followers but the entire Order is ready to kill him, so it's only a matter of time before both sides come together to take him down or for one to finally stand up to him and try to kill his ass.

Things are going to be very interesting soon, however, in order for these things to be as kick-ass as we want them to be, we need a few characters. Our most wanted characters are: Severus Snape, Lily & James Potter, Xenophilius Lovegood, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Cassidy Longbottom, Michael Brown, and a whole bunch more! Not to mention, poor Regulus really needs him someone to drag him out of that damn closet he's hiding in.

3:11 am - Amortentia

amortentiamods
The Game
It's been a year and a half since the fall of Voldemort and the Wizarding World is still rebuilding. The Death Eaters have been tried, Hogwarts has been rebuilt, and everyone is attempting to move on with their lives. However, most of them have forgotten the biggest thing they should have learned during the war; the importance of love. It was, after all, Dumbledore's message that there could always be move love in this world.

While working on an experiment to alter the properties of the popular love potion, Amortentia, Unspeakable Hermione Granger makes a mistake that leaves everyone within the Ministry, Diagon Alley, and Hogsmeade on that day fall in love with the person whom they're nearest to. While everyone is stuck with the wrong person, or in some cases, the right ones, The Ministry frantically tries to correct their mistake, but their attempt to bring everyone out of their love-drunk stupor only leads to everyone magically finding their soulmate. Not everyone will be happy about who they're fated to be with, but some of them may just find what they've been looking for.

Amortentia is set in the year 2000, when the Wizarding World is still recovering from the events of the war. We're focused on the characters exploring all kinds of relationships: romantic, family, friendship, etc. and character development. Every two to three weeks, the mods will introduce a new plot point for the game, which will keep things in motion for the first few months, with the plan being to let everyone keep things going with character interactions afterwards.
Current Events
After a botched experiment with altering the properties of Amortentia, almost everyone fell under the potion. Some people spent the time snogging, others got engaged, and some people ended up with people they secretly desired in the first place, opening up new relationships to be formed. There's also a lot of people who aren't happy about the entire thing, not to mention, some truths have come out about others. There's a lot going on and it's going to keep going on.
The Players
Amortentia is currently seeking dedicated writers who are interested in character development, participating in game-wide plots, and moving the plot forward with character interactions.
Coming Soon
Kingsley and the Ministry are going to administer a new potion invented by Hermione which will lead people to seek out their soulmates, which can only lead to chaos and hilarity. However, in order to make sure this all kicks some ass, we need to fill some of out most wanted characters, which include: Neville Longbottom, Harry Potter, Seamus Finnigan, and many others.

The year is 1976 and the world is changing. Lord Voldemort has been slowly gathering followers and rising to power. People are disappearing at alarming rates and there is an overall feeling of uneasiness over wizarding society. As the world prepares to go to war, things in Hogwarts continue on as usual. Prefects are chosen, Quidditch is played and the usual teenage drama allows it’s self to unfold. It’s not as if the students have no idea what’s going on out there, they would just like one more chance to be children before going to war.

Juvenescent is a sixth year MWPP game focusing on the social and every day lives of the Hogwarts students.

Coming Soon
Since we have yet to open, we're looking for as many characters as possible to get us rolling with the plot and we will make adjustments as we go. Some of our most wanted characters at the moment are: Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Harry Potter, and many others.

2:20 am - Crescendo

crescendomods
It's 1981. Voldemort is on the rise. Death Eaters roam free. Hundreds have died or disappeared. As each day passes, the resistance grows weaker. Voldemort seems to be invincible and all hope seems lost, that is until a Prophecy is made; a child with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies to those who have thrice defied him and with a power that the Dark Lord will not understand. This child will bring an end to Voldemort's reign. And so the Dark Lord set out to kill this child before he could grow into a threat.

We all know the story, little Harry Potter is that child, his parent's die to protect him, the Dark Lord falls, Sirius Black is sent to prison, The Longbottoms are tortured to insanity, dozens more die, and the survivors are left broken.

But let's not get further into that, because we all know that story. Because, what if the story had a different outcome? What if you had a chance to re-write canon? Decide who lives? Who dies? Who wins the war?

What if you could re-write history?

Here is your chance!

Crescendo is an AU Marauders Era RPG taking place in 1981, when the war is in full swing. Through your actions, the story will slowly unravel into something new and exciting, or still have the same outcome. The ending is unknown, but the journey to discovering it will be a good one.

So...what are you waiting for?
Most Wanted: Frank Longbottom, Rabastan Lestrange, Rodolphus Lestrange, Caradoc Dearborn, Severus Snape, Gilderoy Lockhart, Xenophilius Lovegood, Gideon Prewett, Thomas & Cassidy Longbottom Sybill Trelawney, Benjy Fenwick, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Glenda Chittock, Petunia Dursley, Andromeda & Ted Tonks, and many others!

We're currently seeking dedicated writers who are interested in character development, participating in game-wide plots, changing canon through their actions and interactions, and truly exploring the 'what-ifs' of the HP-Verse that canon ruined for us.

9:17 am - [Era of Hogwarts] An All-Eras HP RP!

hogwartsmod

"Every great wizard in history started out as nothing more than we are now: students."
WELCOME TO ERA OF HOGWARTS
Many of the greatest witches and wizards in the world have graced the doors of Hogwarts, and spent seven years there, leaning arithmancy, buying practical jokes at Zonko’s and doing literally everything in-between.

Our aim, at Era of Hogwarts, is to condense all of this down into seven years, and answer a lot of what-ifs. What if Voldemort and Harry had been in the same potions class? What if Dumbledore was caught sneaking around the school with a boyfriend? What if Rita Skeeter had her own school gossip rag, and could talk about it all?

At present, a new year has just began, though it's not exactly to a fresh slate. There is an unknown force that is beginning to rise within the school. The year before, at least students had fallen victim to attacks, and now there are rumors about a potential growing werewolf army. Join the beginnings of the Death Eaters and the DA/Order of the Phoenix, both organizations vying for members without being entirely too sure what they are up against.

We hope to see characters from all eras interact with each other as students--as well as the opportunity to bring in original characters. Who knows? History just might rewrite itself within these walls.

We recently have rebooted the RP after a few-month vacation. Because of this, we also are looking for some new players for old characters. More than anything, we are looking for a James Potter and Sirius Black, Hermione Granger, and Peter Pettigrew -- although any number of Death Eaters or members of the DA/Order of the Phoenix are welcomed. We'd also love to see more members of other houses and younger years!

|| Main Page || Forum || Plot || Rules || How to Join ||

A decade has passed since the Battle of Hogwarts. For most of the magical world, life after the end of the Second War was been relatively peaceful. But even the most optimistic witch or wizard knows that no peace can last forever.

As another school year comes to a close at Hogwarts, chatter has already begun about what the fall will bring. A Triwizard Tournament will bring new visitors to the school's hallowed halls, as students from Durmstrang, Beauxbatons, and the Salem Witches' Institute of Magic come to compete against Hogwarts finest. But there are whispers that not all is what it seems: that something or someone is planning to use the Tournament for a darker purpose.

Dark tides are beginning to pull beneath the surface of the adult world. A new terrorist group has begun launching attacks on the Ministry of Magic, intent on fighting for the rights of magical kind. As panic begins to grow, the Aurors are left scrambling, forced to choose between protecting their families or upholding the duties of their badge.

And elsewhere, there are hints of even darker shadows. There has never been a better time to whisper the old saying, Let there be no evil here.

THE DARKEST YEARS


It had started nearly a decade ago. At first no one thought much of the random disappearances and deaths, all seemingly unconnected to one another. Young, old, female, male, single people, group murders. There was nothing connecting them one another. Until Professor Dumbledore realised what was happening.

From there it didn't take people long to realise that there was something more to these deaths than what originally appeared. Someone then another started to notice that they were Muggles, Muggleborns, people who supported equality. As each day more and more deaths and disappearances were occurring until they could no longer be ignored.

The year is now 1980, the attacks have been occurring for a decade and show no sign of stopping. Everyone is scared, no one trusts anyone, especially those involed the most in the war. Welcome to The Darkest Years, the first war is raging between the Death Eaters and the Order of the Phoenix while others are just trying to live their lives, stay safe and pretend that nothing is happening.

The Darkest Years is a canon compliant, Marauder Era game set in 1980 that focuses not only on the war but the lives of the other people, those not directly involved with it.

OPENED SEPTEMBER 1ST


Wanted: Albus Dumbledore, Arthur and Molly Weasley, Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange, Sirius Black, Amycus and Alecto, Death Eaters, Neutrals, Fudge, Alice and Frank and Millicent Bagnold among others.

1:00 pm - “Two enormous green eyes had appeared among the leaves." Finished in a night

mncuddlecub
Gouache paints with coloured pencil on watercolour paper.

Last night I had some time to myself, and while I used it as I should - I painted, I decided not to work on the next Oz painting (which is all ready to go and what I was planning on doing) but rather a little something just for me.

I had recently decided I wanted to use this vignette drawing for the illustration that’ll go on the slipcase. And with the free time I had, I thought I’d be able to do it in the night... and I was!

Not much to say about it... I’m happy with it. The green of the leaves and Dobby’s eyes, will go great with the new green motif the book will have going for it, which will make more sense once I’ve finished the new cover painting, which will likely be the painting after the next... or at the very latest after the one after that!

Anyway, here it is:

Eleven years have passed since the Battle of Hogwarts. For most of the magical world, life after the end of the Second War was been relatively peaceful. But even the most optimistic witch or wizard knows that no peace can last forever.

In the adult world, the tentative peace since the end of the Second War was shattered by the Remembering Day attacks. The Wizarding Blood Alliance, seeking to style itself as a Robin Hood-like protector of the magical downtrodden, has declared a shadow war on the Ministry of Magic's Department of Magical Law Enforcement. The brave men and women of the Auror Corps have found themselves under assault, shaken by assassination attempts and threats to their families, as they struggle to balance the safety of those they care about with their duty to the public.

Meanwhile, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry stands on the brink of completing another turbulent school year. Fifth year students rush to study for their OWLs, and the Graduating Class of 2009 is getting ready for an even bigger adventure: the transition into the real world. Many are preparing to enter the Ministry. A handful have set their sights high, hoping to be accepted to the prestigious Auror training program. But other students look to head in the opposite direction: disillusioned with Ministry policies, they have become entangled in the underworld, expressing sympathy for the controversial Wizarding Blood Alliance.

And behind it all, a new breed of werewolf - the Direwolf - prowls the land, transforming during the day and causing panic in the streets. Who's to blame? Some cast a suspicious eye towards the WBA. Others blame normal, law-abiding werewolves, who now suffer under harsh new draconian policies that seek to keep the magical public safe.

One thing is for certain: the past year has seen more strife than any other since the fall of Voldemort. No matter where your allegiances may lie, with the Light or with the Rising Darkness, there is no doubt that the same whispered prayer lingers at the tip of everyone's tongue:

Absit Omen: Let There Be No Evil Here.


Absit Omen is a Harry Potter play-by-post roleplaying game set in 2009. Writers may take up the part of original or canon characters from the Harry Potter series. For more information, visit our How to Join page.

Characters Needed: Current Hogwarts students, graduating Seventh Year students, Aurors, Ministry workers, Werewolf Capture Unit members, werewolves and direwolves, WBA members and other criminals, other Requested Adoptions, and many more!
