1972 / Welcome back! It's 1972.
« on: 12/01/2011 at 17:53 »
Hi everyone, and welcome (back) to the new Summer Campus! We'll be here through the end of December, after which we will transition back to the castle.

If your character graduated, don't forget to apply with a new one! Additionally, Elsewhere applications are open year-round, and we'll let you know when professor applications go live!

Here are some general announcements (some new, some old). It's great to see you!

General Links
Sorting Hat
Elsewhere
Hogwarts School Wiki
Website

The Mod Squad
Ask them if you have any questions, or if you'd like to get involved in their efforts! We've restructured the Mod Squad this time around to hopefully encourage more activity and purpose. If you're interested in any of their areas, let them know - we need as much help as we can get!

Recruitment
Cadi Wolfe
Kellen Douglass

Directory Representatives
Hero Savage
Cassius Ellwood-Luxe

Department of Games and Things
Lydia Chant
Edgar Marlow
Charlotte Tallis

Additionally, the administrators for this term are myself (Esme Vartan), Cat (Bruce Havard), and Sarah (Rhoswen Hardwick).

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements

Security updates!
The chatroom is only open to characters actively writing at our site. You must register to join our chat.

Paging All Residents!
Check out the General OOC if your character plans to stay at the Hangout for the summer (and if they have anyone that they would like to live with!). Keep in mind, the cabins are separated boys and girls. Younger years share cabins of up to ten students (rising years 1-6, essentially), while older years bunk in groups of four (rising year 7).

Got a boo-boo?
The infirmary, located across the hall from the Mess Hall, is open for all of your medical disasters. Come by and visit!

Going Out?
The little Hangout town (between the Hangout and Hogsmeade) is home to all sorts of small businesses. Feel free to have your parents crash for a weekend at the hotel, hold a romantic tryst in the gazebo, or spend an afternoon in the bookshop.

Biographies, Plot Pages, and Journals, oh my!
Be sure to check out the Character Development forums for Wanted! ads and plot pages. They're a good way to make friends without doing an introductory ("Hi, I'm Esme." "Hi, I'm Timothy." "I'm the Keeper of the Keys." "Yeah I know.") thread.

Thanks everyone! Have a great summer.

OKAY. Here's one in bbcode. I hate bbcode. I used Ellerie's because it was still on my clipboard, but you can substitute the image for any of them.








THREE YEARS AFTER the joint murders of two of Hogwarts' brightest students, two are presumed  dead, one is very much alive. While the arrest of suspect Damien Andrada put some minds to rest, the  respite was only temporary as Andrada has recently been released under mysterious circumstances  and is now living amongst the general populace.

RIOTS AND DISCORD has clouded many key social groups with concern over the current  Minister of Magic and her cabinet. Accusations have flown from both ends of the spectrum for the  recent attacks on Hogwarts, and no one can decide if Hogwarts is the safest place on Earth, or a ticking time bomb.

A NEW MINISTRY takes the stage as the Wizengamot elects a new Minister of Magic as well  as several unknown names for his cabinet. Policy changes are on the horizon for both the Wizarding  World and Hogwarts alike, with some students electing to stay abroad at Salem Institute or Beauxbatons Academy.

BACK AT THE RANCH, students and adults alike are preparing for summer. For some, this means traveling abroad or visiting their parents -- for others, the summer campus has opened.  There are reminders of instability everywhere, though, from Aurors patrolling the summer campus to random Veritaserum screenings.


term begins 01 January 2012.



About us.

Hogwarts School is one of the oldest Harry Potter RPGs still alive today. Started in 2000, we offer inter-house Quidditch matches, dueling tournaments, and writing-based classes as well as full-scale magical skill system. Our administrative team is active, and there is a formal ball held every term or other large-scale event.

We also foster two smaller sister-schools to Hogwarts, Salem Institute and Beauxbatons Academy, for players who already have a character at Hogwarts School.

During the summer, the castle closes and the players move to the Summer Campus, a small summer camp on the other side of the lake. We offer chatrooms (not to be confused with chatboxes) on all of our boards, and we encourage OOC participation in plots! Currently, our active member base around 80 players, and we're always looking for more. Check us out!

It won't let you post HTML when it's converted into bbcode html? Stupid caution.

Urm. I don't really code in bbcode often. Do you?

Eee shoes. <3 I've worn the same pair of black flats four days in a row now, so I think I'm in a slump.

And yes, Ed. Yes you absolutely may. But you need to stop staring like that because I keep thinking I'm in trouble.

Also we need to recruit that guy from that one blog to come with us.

Basically anything that William Lancaster says is true for me. That in mind, we'll keep this short.

I'm Amy, and I'm 22 years old. I just graduated from university with a couple of degrees and a lot of t-shirts. Outside of Hoggies, I'm a graphic designer with a publishing company, and I've recently taken an interest in power tools as I DIY my way into a new apartment. I have a blog about it! It's nerdy. It keeps me happy. These are all good things.

I've been on the site since I was 13. It's not nearly as long as it sounds, because I took two pretty large breaks, the most recent in the middle of university to do all those collegiate things like unpaid internships and eating ramen. I came back in December '09, and I've been here ever since. I'm the (second) newest member of the site administration team, though I've been on the Summer administration team for ages. I do all the designs for the boards, which means that things occasionally get very pink and full of kittens, and if something breaks, I'm probably the girl to talk to.

My main characters have been:

Esme Vartan Charms professor, Keeper of the Keys, and the constantly annoyed wife of Timothy Vartan. Esme was a Ravenclaw and Head Girl during her time at Hogwarts, and recently miscarried her baby in a sick twist of events relating to Supra Mortalitas (I'm looking at you, Spency). I'm not certain if she'll return to the Castle next term or if she's got other plans. I'm enjoying being indecisive.

Ellerie SA! If you see a blonde girl around here with a french last name and a penchant to die, it's probably one of mine. Ellerie's the latest in this set, and she's... sixteen. Old. She's one of the Beauxbatons girls you'll see floating around the site, and her daddy was just made the British Minister of Magic which meeeans she might be coming back to Hogwarts, but probably not. I haven't decided, but most of my castle students tend to be unloved and abandoned.

Georgia Darcy Former Keeper of the Keys and certainly the craziest lady around, Georgia was the necromancy professor, the temporary Slytherin House Head (she decorated their common room with pillows embroidered with kittens. they loved it), and the latest resident of Azkaban.

(I know I copied my intro from last term. Don't judge me.)

THREE YEARS AFTER the joint murders of two of Hogwarts' brightest students, two are presumed dead, one is very much alive. While the arrest of suspect Damien Andrada put some minds to rest, the respite was only temporary as Andrada has recently been released under mysterious circumstances and is now living amongst the general populace.

RIOTS AND DISCORD has clouded many key social groups with concern over the current Minister of Magic and her cabinet. Accusations have flown from both ends of the spectrum for the recent attacks on Hogwarts, and no one can decide if Hogwarts is the safest place on Earth, or a ticking time bomb.

A NEW MINISTRY takes the stage as the Wizengamot elects a new Minister of Magic as well as several unknown names for his cabinet. Policy changes are on the horizon for both the Wizarding World and Hogwarts alike, with some students electing to stay abroad at Salem Institute or Beauxbatons Academy.

BACK AT THE RANCH, students and adults alike are preparing for summer. For some, this means traveling abroad or visiting their parents -- for others, the summer campus has opened. There are reminders of instability everywhere, though, from Aurors patrolling the summer campus to random Veritaserum screenings.


term begins 01 January 2012.




About us


Hogwarts School is one of the oldest Harry Potter RPGs still alive today. Started in 2000, we offer inter-house Quidditch matches, dueling tournaments, and writing-based classes as well as full-scale magical skill system. Our administrative team is active, and there is a formal ball held every term or other large-scale event.

We also foster two smaller sister-schools to Hogwarts, Salem Institute and Beauxbatons Academy, for players who already have a character at Hogwarts School.

During the summer, the castle closes and the players move to the Summer Campus, a small summer camp on the other side of the lake. We offer chatrooms (not to be confused with chatboxes) on all of our boards, and we encourage OOC participation in plots! Currently, our active member base around 80 players, and we're always looking for more. Check us out!

1973 / Rules for the Summer Campus
« on: 11/29/2011 at 16:39 »
We like to keep these sweet and simple, so follow them and we'll have no issues.

1.) Security. This includes the security of your account, as well as your personal information. Play it safe and keep it a secret.

2.) Respect. We operate at a PG-13 rating, and all posts should reflect that. In addition, harassment of fellow players or administrators will not be tolerated - this includes flaming and whining.

3.) Creativity. Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters are not fun to write, write with, or read about. Don't create one.

4.) Effort. In character posts should be in third person, should be longer than a paragraph, and should control only your character.

It must be noted that at the Summer Campus, we operate on a 'act now, ask questions later' basis for harassment and flaming. These are real people with whom you interact, and actions like this are unacceptable.
