To celebrate the revival of the Potter fandom, with the new book/play and a set of movies on its way I figured I'd post up something myself and my cosplay group do :D We're getting ready to do it again next weekend <3

Seize The Day

For years terror and death plagued the United States. A legion of dark wizards, aligned to the most evil of witches, the Lady Nyx, wreaked havoc on their world. Sadistic and ruthless, they ruled the Wizarding community with an iron fist and even struck fear into the hearts of some Muggles. A valiant fight from brave witches and wizards brought about her end but some wait in the shadows for her return.

Thirty years later, the death of Lady Nyx and the imprisonment and vanishing of many of her followers is but a history lesson to the students of Hogwarts. The world is finally at peace and a new group of students have enters Hogwarts, new cliques, new relationships and of course, new drama. Can they keep it together long enough to survive the school year, not to mention the oncoming darkness drawing ever closer?

Will you seize the day? Apply for a wizard or witch and enter the world of wizards, witches, spells and songs. Original characters are welcome and encouraged. The game started on July 23rd, 2015. Go check out the Wanted Characters or Holds page and get your application in!

~ ENTER THE VAST AND EXCITING WORLD OF...



We live mainly the time period the books and most roleplaying games skip over – generally the 1980s and the beginning of the '90s – we'll see how the sociaty healed from the long war, and what happened when in the summer of 1992 a rumour spread that the Boy Who Lived battled Voldemort inside Hogwarts! How is your character adapting? Or is it a muugle who's yet to find out about the secret world of magic? Or perhaps a muggle who's absolutely terrified by magic like Mr. Dursley? In addition to the final two years of the first wizarding war, in this RPG muggles and the everyday life and festives or wizarding families can stand out.

This time and setting provides nearly endless possibilities for your characters and gives room for almost any kind of character! Both, muggle and wizarding sociaties are equally available. So also muggle characters have tons of possibilities even if they didn't know anything about magic's existance. And the extensive information package makes sure that anyone who's interested can enjoy playing here, as you don't necessarely need to know the story or the Potter universe beforehand!

This might be an excellent choice for anyone who wishes to combine everyday life to the enchanting universe of the Harry Potter books!

* * * * *

NEVERMORE OFFERS, among other things:

~ Small application! Also relatively free-form.

~ No word count, (as long as your average game post is more than a two or three lines.)
This hopes to target writers from intermadiate to advanced but beginners are welcome. After all, you can develop writing skills only by writing and reading.

~ Extensive cast of playable species and character types & you don't need any special permissions to have them! In addition to witches, wizards, squibs and muggles you could play vampires, werewolves, hags, goblins, house-elves, centaurs and ghosts! There's info on many other non-playable magical creatures as well from which you can get great character and game event ideas.

~ In-depth information package on the game's universe from which you can get tons of character and game event ideas, yet also players' suggestions and wishes for the universe's and game's development are warmly welcome and encouraged!

~ Strongly canon based, but lots of adapting has happened so AU is allowed!

~ Generous god-moding rule that still doesn't rob anyone off their rights for their character!

~ Over 12 years long timeline to really get into your character's life + you're free to set game events outside it as well!

~ Free-flow gaming; you can set game events to any year at any time. Grow your character as quickly or slowly as you want to!

~ No main plot, as in this is mostly a character plot driven rpg but you're free to suggest side plots that could involve many characters if you enjoy them!

~ Offline style. You don't have to be on the forum at any specific time.

~ Annnual character awards where your character can win brilliant and fun titles!

~ Monthly Potter related polls!

Feedback and questions are always welcome! :)

~ Website & Forum here!

MISTIfanfic
In the wizarding world, the pen can often be mightier than the wand -- and so can the pencil, the paintbrush, and the stylus! J.K. Rowling's works have inspired thousands of writers and artists to dive into the wizarding world and expand it with their own creations.

From the sublime to the smutty and back again, derivative works allow readers across the globe to develop their talents, express their enthusiasm, and cement lifelong friendships with fellow fans. MISTI-Con wants you to share your creativity with everyone at the con by submitting to our Calls for Fan Fic and Fan Art.

Submission forms are available at the link below:

Society Cannot Survive Without Gossip and Rumors
Do you know what happens four years after a community finally stops being at war? No one is hiding. No one is just fighting to survive anymore. As people rebuild their lives, they find the foundation of life hasn't truly changed at all. People have friends, jobs, and lives. Now they just can relish in a sense of security they thought they may never have again.

Unexpectedly the generation emerging as adults now have the attention of those around them and, mainly, the attention of those reading the pages of the Witch Weekly. In truth, they have became almost celebrities in their own right in the community without their permission. Some acknowledge this status for themselves or their friends; others try to hide from it and keep their lives private.
In the aftermath, people seem to want to live a quieter life, but those who are watching from the outside don't always want to keep it that way. Those who were students are now adults, trying to build their own life outside of war and the hallowed halls of Hogswarts. But the social pages of the Witch Weekly have gotten more and more popular as the writer began to shine a spotlight on all many. Readers at least have decided to just embrace the new attitude in the media. Gossip is just right the corner at every turn for just about anyone.

With the spotlight on them, no one is safe from being written about in the gossip pages that seem to try to build scandal and rumors on anything they could find.

Now in the year 2003, will you try to hide from the light or embrace it?

Society Cannot Survive Without Gossip and Rumors
Do you know what happens four years after a community finally stops being at war? No one is hiding. No one is just fighting to survive anymore. As people rebuild their lives, they find the foundation of life hasn't truly changed at all. People have friends, jobs, and lives. Now they just can relish in a sense of security they thought they may never have again.

Unexpectedly the generation emerging as adults now have the attention of those around them and, mainly, the attention of those reading the pages of the Witch Weekly. In truth, they have became almost celebrities in their own right in the community without their permission. Some acknowledge this status for themselves or their friends; others try to hide from it and keep their lives private.
In the aftermath, people seem to want to live a quieter life, but those who are watching from the outside don't always want to keep it that way. Those who were students are now adults, trying to build their own life outside of war and the hallowed halls of Hogswarts. But the social pages of the Witch Weekly have gotten more and more popular as the writer began to shine a spotlight on all many. Readers at least have decided to just embrace the new attitude in the media. Gossip is just right the corner at every turn for just about anyone.
