The deepest definition of youth...
is life as yet untouched by tragedy
|Name:||Incendio...A Harry Potter RPG|
|Website:||Incendio...A Harry Potter RPG|
As of the release of Order of the Phoenix, this game is AU. New canon that does not interfere with game continuity can be incorporated.
It began like this:
Harry Potter has barely escaped with his life – again.
Harry and his best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger have just finished the first week of their sixth term as students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. On this clear, crisp Autumn day, Harry decides to take his Firebolt out for his daily circuits around the Quidditch pitch, but his beloved broom is nowhere to be found. He scours every corner and closet and is beginning to panic when he sees a note lying on his bed. He could swear it wasn’t there before. Assuming he’d just overlooked it earlier, Harry shrugs off the strange appearance, as he finds the note is from Ron:
Hope you don’t mind that I took the Firebolt for a spin. It’s such a great day to fly and I hated being cooped up in here watching Hermione study. I’ll leave it in the broom shed for you when I’m done. Thanks, Harry!
Harry finds it odd that Ron would leave the Firebolt in the shed rather than bring it back to Gryffindor Tower, but nonetheless runs to the pitch to retrieve his broom. Harry is relieved to find his Firebolt safe and sound and propped up against the shed wall. Madame Hooch arrives and shoos Harry away, as she has to ensure all the school brooms are up to standard for another year. Harry is barely halfway back to the castle when a huge explosion rocks the grounds. Harry turns back to see the broom shed consumed in flames and he runs to the castle for help.
And that was only the beginning. From the moment the broomshed went up in flames, everyone at Hogwarts new this would be the most dangerous, most exciting, most tragic year ever.
And so it has been. Mysterious dream-visitors, kidnappings, possessions, deaths, even a murder by a student—it's only March, and the year has seen all these things. Not to mention the usual romances, tests, and mundane worries of hormone-ridden teenagers. We hope you'll join us in a game both social and adventurous—come and play Incendio!
1. Adult themes and content are welcome here as long as they are consistent with your character and the storyline(s) and participants are over the age of consent in their area. Sexual situations/suggestions, swearing, violence, disturbing content etc. may appear in journal entries and/or RP. However, please do warn if adult content will appear in posted logs.
2. Both Het and Slash pairings are welcome here. Currently we're really interested in getting more female characters and straight male characters, because the slash is getting a bit overwhelming. If you have an idea for a girl or straight bloke, do please apply!
3. Players are required to make at least one IC journal entry a week. If you fail to post for two straight weeks without notifying the mods, your journal will be removed and your character will be made available to the public again. We understand about RL constraints and that things happen. We're not evil. But we get very frustrated when people do not let us know what's going on, and we spend weeks wondering, "Did they quit without telling us? Are they coming back? Did they fall off the edge of the world?" We're really quite understanding and not-evil, but please do communicate with us and try to stay in touch!
4. Be creative and have fun with your character! HOWEVER, we ask that your portrayal stay relatively faithful to the spirit of the canon.
5. All OOC comments or questions can be posted on our OOC community, 3_Broomsticks.
6. INCENDIO IS AN LJ RPG.All players are strongly encouraged to provide a journal for their character. However, we do have some LJ codes we can give out if you absolutely can't get one. Don't let this be the one thing that keeps you from applying!
7. We will not be accepting original characters until we've built up a strong base of canon players. Really, there are a WHOLE LOT of canon characters open at the moment, we're sure you can find someone you want to play!
8. Second characters will be given to existing players on a case-by-case basis. Mostly we want to make sure you have time to devote, because we know from experience that when people get too busy or have too many people living in their head, they stop being able to keep them all active. We promise, we have all learned this the hard way!
An extended version of "Incendio" Guidelines and Posting Rules will be emailed to every player upon acceptance into the community.
E-mail the mods – please put "Incendio" somewhere in the subject line – and include the following information:
1. Name (and current LJ, if you have one)
2. Email address we can reach you at (please use one you regularly check!)
3. Name of Desired Character
4. Brief biography/concept/history of your character: A few paragraphs is fine, and please include things like what classes they're best at, if you want them to play Quidditch, and if they are pureblood/halfblood/Muggleborn. You might also include some family history and a bit of psychology.
5. Short sample journal entry: Don't worry, this won't be the one you're starting out the game with! It doesn't have to have anything to do with the actual current plot unless you want it to. It just has to give us an idea that you understand how this whole format works.
6. Any ideas about the direction you want your character to go.
7. Prior RPG experience: Keep in mind it's not necessary to have, we're glad to take on new players and we're happy to answer questions and groom you all into perfect little role-players. This just gives us an idea of how much we can expect to do that, and also if it's likely you'll have other game obligations besides this one.
8. Do you have an LJ code or will you need one?
9. Anything else you think we should know, or any questions you want to ask!
Disclaimer: by submitting a player application you confirm that you’ve read and agree to abide by the "Incendio" guidelines.
If you are chosen to play, you have one week to set up an LJ account for your character and make your first post before we put the character up for grabs again. You'll be added to the OOC community automatically.
Applications will be reviewed as they come in; please allow us a few days to read it through and discuss it among ourselves before replying!
