Established in 2000, Hogwarts-School.Net is one of the largest and longest-running Harry Potter role-play games still online today. In addition to student and professor status at Hogwarts school, we offer a variety of post-graduate career paths (Healers at St. Mungo's, Writers at the Daily Prophet, employees at the Ministry of Magic, or soldiers in the Wizarding Army - Merlin's Order of Defence), as well as the ability to become a shop owner in Hogsmeade, Diagon and Knockturn Alleys, or greater wizarding London.
Our out-of-character year is divided into three in-character years, split roughly between:
Year 1: January-April OOC | September Y1 - August Y2 IC
Year 2: May-August OOC | September Y2 - August Y3 IC
Year 3: September-December OOC | September Y3 - August Y4 IC
April, August, and December mark our OOC 'summer' months, where we open all boards for applications.
Note - all information here is available via the top navigational bar, beneath Resources, for quick access.
