First Stop

You will find all important information here. From rules, to needs/bans, to available canons, and available jobs. The only boards you can post on in this area are Thread Monitoring and Activity Requirements. The rest are locked informational boards. New members, you're going to be here for a while, so get nice and cozy, and maybe grab some tea.
As you might guess, this is the place to come to submit your character application. Just click 'New Character Registrations,' and when you select create a new thread, the template will come up. This is also where you can find our alias page, play-bys page, and other helpful information!
Any other claims you need will be found here, and that means everything. Wands, clubs, housing, pets, open threads, volunteer work sign-ups, and everything in between. This is also where you can claim house points, which is now open for adult characters as well.
This board is guest friendly! Anyone feel free to come on over to ask some questions, if you need any help, or make some suggestions on how to make the site better! We definitely love when you guys have ideas, and that means you too, guests! Feel free to let us know how we could improve! All important site announcements will be here as well. This is also where to come for the staff request thread, if any members need anything from us!

Extras

In this board, you can fill out an application for a character that you would like someone else to take.
All of our characters have memories and perhaps it is time to review something in history. This section is solely for RPing memories of our characters, letting you act it out via the Pensieve.
In here you will find our character boards as well as our character shippers, which makes it easy to plot with other members and learn more about characters!
Here one can send information from character to character in letter form. This is one of the few exceptions to the third-person rule as characters will be able to write in first person.

Hogwarts

Located under Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, this area of the castle is rather chilly, perhaps implying that the occupants are rather cold individuals.
Located just above the Dungeons, this surprisingly un-musty area is the home of a few great rooms that may interest curious minds. Though, as there are no classrooms, this floor really is quite useless for those that do not belong.
Perhaps the most travelled floor to exist in the castle, this floor contains many of the courtyards, various halls, and many different rooms for enjoyment.
Home to a few different classrooms, this floor also contains all that is needed for students that need a bit of healing. Looking for a ghost to communicate with? Moaning Myrtle is located in the Girl's Lavatory. However, be gentle with one's words - she can be slightly sensitive.
Not many exciting things can be found on this floor unless one really does enjoy their classes. Though, there are some questionable rooms that can be located on this floor.
This floor seems to contain a few different hidden passageways, though it is uncertain why a castle would have so many hideaways, as if encouraging students to roam about aimlessly, getting into trouble, no doubt. The One-Eyed Witch is not known by very many, but some people may stumble upon the others.
This floor tends to be quiet as it is home to the library, after all. Even though the entire floor isn't a library, it grates on the librarian's nerves when he hears anyone nearby that he considers being rowdy.
This floor is not a well-traversed floor, really, as the only room of real importance is the Muggle Studies classroom. However, prefects would find this floor incredible, simply because of the presence of the luxurious prefects' bathroom.
There are really only a few rooms that students would find themselves needing on a regular basis on the sixth floor. The Ancient Runes classroom can be found here. It is a poorly lit floor, and has many tapestries and portraits on the walls.
The top-most floor of Hogwarts hosts many classrooms and two house dormitories. A pretty long walk to the ground floor, though, so that's a bit inconvenient for students trying to sneak into the kitchens for a late-night snack.
The grounds of Hogwarts are very expansive, with the lawns leading to the quidditch pitch, the lake, and the Forbidden Forest. Students would also come out here for Herbology class and some practical Care of Magical Creatures lessons.

Magical Communities

Diagon Alley, a large, well-known wizarding shopping area that will typically be found busy when it nears September as students and parents hurry about, eagerly preparing for the new school year. Many restaurants and shops can be discovered, stocking up on much needed necessities. This magical community is hidden by the muggle world.
This shopping area is off of Diagon Alley in London, and is filled with shops devoted to the Dark Arts. Since Death Eaters have taken over the Ministry and the U.K., this place has gone back to being where purebloods and the like go to buy what they needed, but most don't have to live in the horrible surroundings any longer.
Throughout London, there are many magical locations if one only knows where to look. Some of the entrances to these magical establishments, such as the Ministry and St. Mungo's are heavily frequented by Muggles, so use of magic in some areas has to be discreet.
London is not just made up of the city itself, but its surrounding suburbs as well. Some of them are in some poor areas, some are nicer, and there are both magical and muggle areas that can be found here.
Ottery St. Catchpole is a small town, and it is located in Devon, England. This is both a Muggle and a magical village, and so residents there have to be cautious to make sure to abide to the Statute of Secrecy. Famous families in the area are the Weasleys, and the Lovegoods, though other wizarding families can be found there as well. It is quite the small village, but has plenty of small shops and apartments.
Godric's Hollow is home to a large number of wizarding families, however it is not a purely Wizarding village. This means that use of magic needs to be avoided openly, as most of the shops and pubs located in the village are frequented by Muggles. Famous residents include the Potter family, the Dumbledore family, and Bathilda Bagshot. There is a memorial to the Potter family.
Hogsmeade Village is near to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and hosts many shops that not only students (third year and up, of course) enjoy, but adults as well. The main street offers a variety of different stores, and pubs, and is incredibly picturesque during the holidays.

United Kingdom

England is situated on an island of Great Britain in North Western Europe. It shares a border with Scotland to the north and Wales on the west. The capitol is London and the population there accounts for more than 80 percent of the population in the entire U.K. The country covers most of the island.

Ireland is separated from Great Britain to its easy by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George's Channel.

This is a peaceful country with beautiful scenery that is certainly worth a visit.

Africa is the second largest continent, and covers six percent of the Earth's total surface. Dozens of countries call it home, and all are diverse and beautiful in their own right. It's a lovely place to visit or live, but be sure to bring some sun lotion if you're not used to the heat...
The Earth's largest and most populous continent, there are both landlocked countries and islands considered to be apart of Asia. All have diverse cultures, and are most certainly worth a visit.
