A Harry Potter Play-by-Post RPG

Who's Who?



All characters need their own account. Character accounts should be your character's First and Last name. Middle names/initials are optional.
All members need an OOC Account. Create an OOC account with the name of your choice.
Character accounts and OOC accounts must be linked together. Any accounts without a link will be deleted, as it will be assumed to be spam.
Private messages should only be sent between OOC accounts. Character accounts may be checked less often, which can lead to missed messages.

* See How Linked Accounts Work for more detail.

We do not allow canon characters. Original characters that are distant relatives of canon characters may be considered.
We allow unlimited Hogwarts Students, Magical Adults, Muggles, and Squibs.
The following character types are limited to 3 per player: Animagi, Legilimens, Metamorphmagi, Part-Giants, Part-Veela, Parseltongues, Seers, and Werewolves.
Character images must exclusively feature photographs of real individuals. Artwork or AI-generated depictions of characters are not allowed.

Write in the past tense, third person for IC threads between players.
There's no word count, but provide enough material for the other player to work off of.
Keep 18+ threads in the appropriate forum. Any threads that contain explicit content that is of a sexual or violent nature should begin or continue in The Age Line forum. When in doubt, use The Age Line forum.
All characters that are involved in sexual content must be 18 or older. If not, fade to black.

Use the default font colour. Your character's dialogue can be in a different colour, but the colour needs to be visible in both Light and Dark mode.
Use the Tagging Guide for your threads to ensure that all players have the experience that they are comfortable with.

There's no IC activity requirement, but members will be archived after 1 month of OOC inactivity. Archived members are welcome to come back at any time, no questions asked.
Character claims will be re-opened after 2 months of OOC inactivity, unless a leave of absence has been requested. Re-opened character claims will be restored if they are still available upon the player's return.
Accounts that have not posted an application within 1 month of joining will be deleted. You are welcome to rejoin at any time.
Threads that have not seen any activity in 3 months will be archived, but they won't be locked. You are welcome to post your replies, and we will move the thread back to the appropriate forum.
