Everyone knows the name Lord Voldemort. Even in the year 2030, some decades after his death, Tom Marvolo Riddle's dual reigns of terror are not forgotten. His name is still spoken in hushed tones, if at all; it is as if the wizarding community at large fears the very mention of his name will spark his return. But neither was Harry Potter's victory over the Dark Lord ignored. Since that fateful duel in 1998, the Ministry of Magic, and the wizarding world as a whole has changed a great deal. Muggle technology has begun to find a place in the world of wizards, as per the suggestion of the ex-Chosen One, who had lived for years among muggles. New policies and laws protect muggle-born wizards and more harshly punish the use of Dark Magic, while promoting the Light. But the very laws meant to protect society may end up dooming it... At Hogwarts, a group of curious, prodigious, and rebellious fifth years, whose pasts have, for the most part, been uneventful. But their pasts aren't what is important. What matters is what they do now, and how they are about to become a threat to the world even greater than Voldemort ever was. The basic plot of this RP revolves around a group of students from all of the Houses of Hogwarts who get together for what, at first, seem like very simple and innocent reasons. Over time, however, they gradually begin to sink into the Dark Arts, until finally, in their sixth year, they abandon the school and strike out on their own as a terrorist organization, striking out against what they perceive as an overbearing, dystopian society in need of resurrection. Hence why they claim the name of a long defunct secret society, the Order of the Phoenix, as their own. Canon characters exist in this world, but are non-playable. Harry Potter's children have since completed their schooling and live in the outside world, but won't be encountered (along with many other canon characters) until later on in the story. As fifth years, we have a good deal of knowledge on magic, but little practical experience, nor do we know of many powerful spells. In this time period, the Unforgivable Curses are little more than a myth to young children, and the Dark Arts are increasingly persecuted. The initial reasons for forming the new "Order of the Phoenix" are to explore avenues of magic forbidden by conventional teaching, and to escape the structure and regulation of society. The conflict of the story comes in the shape of our growing disregard for personal safety, and the exploration of extremely dark magic, ultimately resulting in us becoming what could essentially be considered modern Death Eaters. ******* I'm looking for around five players, who can play one main character and, at max, two other side characters. I'm also looking for players who are 18+ for an RP that explores violent, sexual, and amoral themes. Furthermore, the writing level is Adept. This thread is just an interest check. If I can get a show of hands, I'll go ahead with an OOC, and hopefully an IC. Hope to see some interest soon!
