Charming is a Victorian Era Harry Potter roleplay set primarily in the village of Hogsmeade, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the non-canon village of Irvingly. Characters of all classes, both magical and muggle — and even non-human! — are welcome.

With a member driven story line, monthly games and events, and a friendly and drama-free community focused on quality over quantity, the only thing you can be sure of is fun!

    Hogwarts Updates '87
    #1
    Hogwarts Updates 1887

    It’s that time of year again! I’ve grouped pertinent information by character category, so please skim through the list and check to see what applies to you!

    The first three must be completed prior to the next AC, or your character will be deactivated. No ifs, ands, or buts. No further warnings.

    RETURNING HOGWARTS STUDENTS
    Please post the form below on the appropriate account. When you’ve been updated, your post will be deleted. “Extra Titles” are limited this year to quidditch positions (bar captain) and club presidencies (but not club memberships!). Club presidencies are not yet available for claiming, bar those that held them last year.

    You do not need to do this if your character was accepted on or after August 5th unless there is an error with your account.
    Code:
    [b]Name:[/b]
    [b]DOB:[/b]
    [b]Incoming Year & House:[/b]
    [b]Extra Titles:[/b] if any.

    DEPARTING HOGWARTS STUDENTS
    All graduates have been seen to, but graduates aren’t the only students who don’t come back. Players of lower class and generally dim characters who have completed their fifth year should seriously consider pulling them out to start a career/get married, as should anyone with a character who will be 16+ and might want to be a Pendergast Rose. Please post in maintenance to get these changes processed! Also leaving Hogwarts will be those who cannot prove their heritage as per SWP7!

    #Realism

    Remember that most careers don’t actually need NEWT grades! See here for some examples.

    For information on school costs and scholarships, click here.

    Please remember that all NEWT-level students require at least three courses. Etiquette, music, and art do not count. For information on qualifying, click here

    INCOMING FIRST YEARS
    If your character was born between September 2nd, 1875 and September 1st, 1876, they would have received their Hogwarts letter last week! Regardless, please post below with your character’s DOB, the fact that they’ll be a first year, and whether you want to do the sorting ceremony or have a set house in mind. (Remember, the Hogwarts is my Home stamp requires a sorting post!)

    Again, please post on the appropriate account!

    If your character cannot prove four human grandparents, they can’t attend Hogwarts this year.

    SUMMER INTERNS
    Internships will conclude on August 25th this year. Please post in maintenance after that date to have your account looked after!

    PROFESSORS
    ALL PROFESSORS are reminded to make sure the NEWT information for their courses is accurate. Please post below to confirm you have done so.

    WANT TO BE FACULTY?
