To be Magical is the fictional biography of Italian witches and wizards in the world of Harry Potter, tweaked our way. You will incarnate a seven years old wizarding citizen of the Wizarding Kingdom of Italy and will go through their lives through events that will be available twice in each of their year of life for as long as we need to complete the objective that will be outlined each of these Chapter of Life. It will be 2025, the 30th of August, to be exact, and the first day in your character's first school. Each of these schools will be held in the house of the tutor, and only when your character will reach the age of eleven years old will they be allowed to choose to eitheir continue with their tutors or enter an international or European wizarding school such as Hogwarts, Beaubatons and Durmstrang. Schooling will not be the only thing in their lives, however, as Wizarding Italy will be a land of tradition and pride, where Duels are legal and all types of magic are openly practiced. Indeed, those schooling days will soon be behind you are you maneuver the ways of politics, arranged marriages and even blood feuds. Italy, however, wil be a land of Arts and Philosophy, and that, with magic, will soon become what your character will associate with him or herself and their peers most. These will be the cardinal rules of this roleplay, and you would do well to abide by them. 1. Absolutely no Godmodding or Metagaming allowed. If you can't find a good reason why your character could manage to do or know something, they can't, and that point is moot ! 2. Be fair, and be polite to each others, there are no need to take IC things seriously, or to start a fight either in the OOC thread or through PMs. 3. Please write at least one well written paragraph per post, and make some effort while writing what your character do ! 4. Keep things PG-13, if things get too graphic, merely fade to black. 5. Most of all ; Have Fun ! First of all, you should ge up to date with both the IC and the OOC, for they will both have crucial information that will help make a believable and, even more importantly, suitable character ! After you are all caught up, you should start thinking of your character as they were as seven years old all the way to the current age of the others, for this will be where you will be starting. Think of their name, gender, family history, likes, dislikes and everything you can think up to flesh out your character in your head. That may take some time and it's perfectly fine, we will all be happy to meet him or her when you are finished, whenever that will be. So you managed to think of a character ? Perfect ! Now is the time to put it all on paper with a Character Sheet : Name : Gender : Living Family : Friends : Enemies : Birthday : (Day and Month only) Likes : Dislikes : Lifelong Dream : Next Goal : Personality : Prior History : Familiar : Inventory : Allowance : (Per Week) And here we go, be aware that this will expend as we go along, so keep tuned if you want to join ! Post the sheet in the OOC and wait for my approval. Then, with my go ahead, try to think of a way to introduce your character to the others and I will make you a entry post accordingly. Nothing ! Here is the Premise : August 30th, 2025. Florence, Italy Today is a special day for wizarding children all over the Wizarding Kingdom of Italy, for the thirtieth of August always means the start of classes for all witches and wizards from seven through eighteen years of age, and even those older than that in many cases. This is a special day for you, for you are now old enough to start your magical schooling, and will today be fetched by your new local teacher and brought to their house to learn the basics of what it means to be a witch or a wizard. You will learn calligraphy, history, etiquette and languages along with more esoterics Runes, Arthmancy and Astronomy this year, and this introductory class will pave the way to whether you will become a fine witch or wizard or an untrained Squib. This stage of your development will be crucial to reach your dreams and earn your place, and so you would do well to be on your best behavior. This tale will encompass your life, from this day forth to your hopefully fulfilling death, with two main events per year where you will be able to explore both the world, art, magic and yourself as an hopeful Magical Maestro. This kingdom is the last stand of the Old Ways, and with it you shall grow with pride and the notion of Noblesse Oblige, for the hapless muggles are to be protected, not destroyed. Will you ascend to true nobility, young one ? Ask and you shall know ! Milo de Casa, played by Mistress. Giustino Peregrine Bassi, played by Reveuse.
