Try #2, let's go. The Magical Congress of the United States of America has launched, nearly 20 years after the defeat of Lord Voldemort, a new No-maj/Wizard co-operation programme. The Magical Co-operation Law Enforcement programme (MCLE) has been put into its trial phases across all of the major American cities - the highest calibre of police detectives and Magical Congress members have been allied under the same agenda to ensure that all crimes are dealt with quickly, efficiently and painlessly. So far, the testing has been a huge success - billboards of smiling witches and wizards, clothed in the MCLE uniform next to fresh-faced and well kept police officers are seen all over America. The glistening skyscrapers which house these elite taskforces are photographed daily, and there hasn't been a newspaper without the MCLE headlining it for the past month or so. Things are looking good for the wizarding world, especially since the rates of magical gang violence and drug smuggling through apparition has increased sharply with the introduction of wizards to the No-maj community. The MCLE has come to represent the pinnacle of Wizard-No-Maj relations. Unfortunately for you, the MCLE is not what you thought it would be. Underqualified for the positions in the central headquarters in Manhattan, you've been rerouted to a shitty, run-down police station in downtown Brooklyn. The gritty truth of the MCLE comes out; all the funding is being poured into these fancy stagefronts who are fed relatively easy cases to deal with whilst any surplus finances (and there isn't much of it to begin with) is split between the lesser-known subunits scattered throughout the different boroughs. Underpaid and overworked, you will find yourself at the beck and call of the No-Maj Captain Brooks Moreland and his quirky magical assistant Abigail Harlow. The plot will throw you headlong into the worst that the criminal underworld has to offer, and the sparkling façade of the MCLE will slowly begin to unravel before your very eyes... Okay, so that's the premise! If I had to explain it very quickly, it's a mix between a modern-day detective/crime RP and some Potterverse elements thrown in for good measure. You'll be playing the rookies in this new taskforce, dealing with long shifts, a moody boss and broken coffee machines whilst all sorts of weird and wonderfully magical things happen in and around your terrible job. We've got big plans for the MCLE and it's manipulative grip on the American media, and those little tidbits will be dropped in-between our 'cases' ranging from illegal dragon-egg smuggling to drug gangs using polyjuice potions to frame law-abiding citizens. I'm going to spend about a week pushing the interest check and slowly working on the OOC before starting up the CS, but we're looking for a small group of long-term players instead of a large group of mildly interested people. If you're down for this sort of controlled chaos, feel free to say hello. If you're not too sure, say hi anyway and we'll make a decision. I have a co-GM who will be making an account on iwaku who will be helping out with all the difficulties of running an RP too, I'm sure he'll drop by eventually.
