    Default Harry Potter and the School of Fear Discussion Thread

    Harry Potter and the School of Fear: Year One

    Discussion Thread

    All righty then, I was given permission to create a discussion thread for the Harry Potter and the School of Fear RPG. I am going to ask that there be no flamming, no spamming, and that everyone treat each other in a respectful manner.

    Now then, we have all that out of the way, so let's start this. You may use this thread to discuss things related to the RPG, not to boost your post count. Things you may do here include:

    *Asking about relationships
    *Asking about information related to the RPG
    *Approving a really big event
    *Asking about characters
    *Approving spells or anything else

    Now then, really big story events will be posted here ahead of time, so everyone can get the data they need. Also, if you have questions, please feel free to post them here, and I will answer to the best of my ability until the real leader gets back from Thanksgiving break.

    Also, a point I will put up again, so there is no questioning it.

    NO LSU's. Flat out.

    ************************************************** ****

    Until Oblivion gets back, I will be answering questions you might have in his absence. That should be at least Friday, so bear with everyone until then. Post the into to your characters, because I think this is going to be a long RPG. No double posting.

    Okay, I have a question. What kind of spells are we going to be using? In know right away we won't be using things like the Summoning Charm. Just so I can get an idea.

    Basic things from the Standard Book of Spells: Grade One. But we're not even at the school, so no one should know any casting yet. I think Oblivion might have a set of spells from each year that we might learn. We won't even be at the school at the end of the week, so I wouldn't worry just yet.

    As both are twins, they should both be going to Hogwarts. Yes, post both, and make sure to include something about my character, we are traveling together.

    Umm... I would want to ask if I could make my character learn the Refilling Charm (Verbal only), cos, well... its just to add something more interesting to him. (Okay, so its just refilling a bottle of liquidified Mashed Potatoes and chicken gravy to eat whenever he's hungry)

    We're not even getting our wands yet, hold up on those questions until Oblivion gets back. I'm not the leader, just filling in questions. That might be okay later, but right now we aren't supposed to know magic.

    Just post intros and getting your letters and things, no Platform Nine and Three Quarters at all. Maybe Diagon Alley, but that's as far as we're going until our leader gets back.

    Agreed. Anyway, my character is a bookworm, so she would probably be reading all her textbooks before she started school. But, how does she get to Diagon Alley if she's a muggle?

    Common sense dictates that, like Tom Riddle, her letter would come with directions to Diagon Alley. I's okay for them to know a few basic spells, but our characters fon't even have wands yet, so no spell casting.

    That Muggle thought goes to all Muggle-borns, your letter should come with directions to Diagon Alley

    I'm back from my family's! We had, like, thirty people packed into my great-granny's tiny house and there was NO room whatsoever to walk. Naturally, there was no hope at getting to the computer. No internet at the hotel either, so now I'm back to find a load of questions. Well, here I go...


    Okay, I have a question. What kind of spells are we going to be using? In know right away we won't be using things like the Summoning Charm. Just so I can get an idea.
    The cirriculum will mostly end up here, but anything outside that that you want to do must be approved by me or my new co-leader for the School of Fear RP series, Powershot! *applause*
    Yup, Powershot, you seem competent and I liked your RP skills when I glanced 'em over. You're the co-leader for a whole seven RPs.

    Hey should I post both my character's and his sisters's reaction in getting accepted into Hogwarts since I included both of them in my sign up?
    Yes, Merkel. Two characters generally means two reactions.

    Umm... I would want to ask if I could make my character learn the Refilling Charm (Verbal only), cos, well... its just to add something more interesting to him. (Okay, so its just refilling a bottle of liquidified Mashed Potatoes and chicken gravy to eat whenever he's hungry)
    NO, knight. You only just got your wand, refilling charms are going to be a year or two ahead. If you had a REALLY good reason, rather than just being able to get food whenever it was wanted, I might consider giving him a spell from the next year up. Even that would have to be approved, though.

    Anyway, my character is a bookworm, so she would probably be reading all her textbooks before she started school. But, how does she get to Diagon Alley if she's a muggle?
    Yes, so she might be a month or two ahead, but still excercise caution. Like Power said, muggle-borns receive letters with instructions on reaching Diagon Alley. We will have wands, but we won't be able to hex each other, except maybe a minor knockback jinx. That's the farthest you get until classes.

    *Power Shot bows over the heads of everyone*

    Thanks, I did the best I could here. Um, do you have a list of spells yet?

    Of course not! We don't have any standard spells for everyone yet, so there'd be no point. Maybe Ollivander could teach the wand light, to demonstrate, but nothing further than that...

    Something I feel like pointing out for everyone.

    I know that at least a few people want to know certain spells, like for instance, I would like Drew, my character, to know Expecto Patronum. But he can't because we are IN THE FIRST YEAR. They didn't even learn the Refilling Charm until sixth year, so it's easy to say that that will not be learnt for a while.

    That does not mean, though, that some spells will be allowed to be learnt ahead of time. Play with your strengths, as Moody said, and I agree with that. A person who hates Potions would not be able to learn advance Potion making skills for example. A person good with Herbology would naturally be able to learn better spells that deal with plants.

    People good at Dark Arts would be able to cast Dark magic better than others, and so forth. But remember that we are all beginners, so we shouldn't even be seeing things like Jelly Legs.

    People like my character and others that are naturally smarter than the others would be able to learn harder spells from more sources, but not as well as the ones with that certain talent, like Nevile in Herbology.

    What events are we covering in the first year? It is my understanding to give everyone a fair shot, the Triwizard Cup should be in second and seventh year, as it is held every five years. But for Quidditch teams and everything, what will be done about that?

    I agree highly with Powershot. I mean, look at Hermione. She was a first year and she conquered some hard spells that not even third years knew. ANd if the Triwizard Tournament is held in their second year, none of us will be choosen, because we are too young, and who would play all the other champions, like the Durmstrang Students and Beauxbatons? That's my only question.

    Well, I just had that thought as it occures every five years. Maybe in the seventh year then, but for the second year perhaps not, as it would just be repeating old material.

    Forgive me as I am not in the RP, but might I suggest that in the second year, have the tournament at a different school. Since it rotates every five years.
    Only the seventh years leave. Plus, theres no new characters to introduce.
    Just a random suggestion.
    Do what you may.
    I caught a Horohoro.
    Is involved in countless Mankin shippings.
    Including.....
    Horohoro X Corey
    Horohoro X Ren X Chocolove
    Yoh X Manta
    Yoh X Ryu X Faust the VIII
    Faust X Eliza

    Ah, that's a much better idea. Thank you for inturrupting then, that was a good idea.

    And yes, DeathlyMighty, you know how much I love excitement.

    *still being pursued, hands over message*

    It actually states that, in order to compete, you must be seventeen years of age. That is why the Weasly twins could not pass the age line. That way, we would be in second year and in seveth year to properly take advantage of it, though the one for second year will take place away from Hogwarts.

    NO. The Triwizard Tournament was discontinued again after the last one ended in disaster. No Triwizard. Yes, Hermione WAS able to learn advanced magic. However, that was essential to the plot. Like Power said, your strengths might earn you a bit of advanced magic, but we're not going to have first-years learning third-year magic left and right.

    The Quidditch teams, first years aren't even allowed brooms. I'll put in a match or two throughout the year, but it won't pertain to anyone in particular unless thier older siblings are playing. In fact, don't expect to be accepted into a team until at least third year.

    The Quidditch World Cup is once every four years, I think, so it'd be on the years that there are Winter Olympic Games (one was in 1994). That would mean second year and sixth year for us. Some of us can show up if we want, and some others can view it via some form of magic if we really care that much.

    Okay, thank you for clearing that up.

    And as a suggestive note, once the Sorting is finished, there will be no LSU's. So if you took a long time in getting ready, too bad, because you will have to wait until next year.

    Oblivion, do I get to know the houses yet, or will that be a surprise for me?

    Anyway, My character shall be pouring through the books, not knowing of any advanced spells. Just simple ones like 'Alohamora' that's all. Is it allowed? She's just pouring through the books, and shall be a Know-it-All at Hogwarts, making no friends at first.

    Anyways, what is the list of spells we're going to learn? I think it's 'Wingardium Leviosa' and 'Alohamora' if I'm not wrong.

    I think we should make a list when we would need it right Oblivion? The basic curriculum for First Year would suffice.
