Hogwarts Slice of Life RP - Discussion:

Welcome to the discussion page! Here, we can share ideas about the roleplaying game, and plan different story ideas. So get discussing.

But here's a few rules for the roleplay. I want to keep the content to a light PG-13 level, but I also want to keep the roleplay from getting Darker and Edgier like the series did. I love the later books/movies, but their tone doesn't suit the direction of this roleplay.
  1. No killing. Death and bereavment can be discussed by the characters, but no one will get killed.
  2. The following words are not to be used in the roleplay; "f**k", "c**t", "n****r", "w***e", and "t**s". Any other form of profanity cannot be used liberally.
  3. Relationships are great, and they can be sexual in nature as well. But the sexual aspects have to be subtle. Same goes with all sexual aspects in the game (except for sexual education classes).
  4. Keep all fighting, violence and content from being too gory.
  5. No railroading from any of the players (including myself).
  6. No God Moding from any of you.

You have to be accepted in the sign up thread first before you can post in the discussion page or the roleplay.

Here's a list of the professors, authority figures and subjects in Hogwarts.

Here's a list of the players in the game, and what characters they're playing.

Anyway, more seriously... Well... I can't think of anything serious to say, yet.

So, deathpigeon, we need to define how close Edward and Hayley know one another. Edward strikes me as being the kind of person who holds others at arms length, and Hayley wouldn't really take to anyone who's consistently icy.

We need to think of a way for Edward to confide in Hayley that he's a muggle born.

Here's my idea: at casual table talk with Hayley on Edward's first night at Hogwarts two years ago, he casually told Hayley that he's a muggle-born. But when Hayley warns Edward about the treatment muggle-borns in Slytherin get from some of the racist members in that house and suggests he lie about his background. And after seeing the treatment muggle-borns get, Edward then started to trust Hayley a bit more. So they started to develop an on-off friendship.

There is no d in pigeon, and, while Edward does tend to keep people at arms length, he also knows how to sidle up to, and charm people, when he needs to.

I was thinking that he was talking to her as a potential ally or tool in school, and mentions that he's sort of new to the idea of magic, since his parents weren't witches or wizards, which led to her telling him that many Slytherin's are bigots, and that lying about his heritage is a good course of action. He takes her advise, and decides that it's better to keep her close to make sure she doesn't reveal his secret, so he befriends her, but never really trusts her, nor considers her to actually be a friend.

[up] That idea's probably better.

And I could also see the two of them as fellow schemers from time-to-time, since both characters are willing to lie and deceive to make ends meet.

[up] True, they could... Then again, that's a characteristic of over half of Slytherin house.

Anyway, I'm thinking of having Edward joining Hayley in her compartment, and having a cryptic conversation with her about him being a muggleborn, which is only understandable, if you already know he's muggleborn.

@Deadbeat: Hope you enjoy the roleplay!

The plan at this stage is to have the characters stay on the Hogwarts express for a few pages to develop character, explore the train, bring in new characters, etc... There's not much of a plot, so I'm in no huge hurry to get things happening. And besides, many of us have things happening in our lives, so I don't expect people to post regularly.

Meanwhile, deathpigeon's character and my character are going to have a little chat, but if you want your character to enter their room, go ahead.

OK.

And just for the sake of argument, are we using the film or the book uniforms? Since the latter was just a black robe over street clothes, if the cover art is anything to go by.

And I still need a name for my owl.

[up][up] Thank you for asking! We're using the book's description of a robe over casual clothes.

No really, I'll clean up my grammar.

I'm not entirely sure why. Maybe I'm just not used to the idea of being at school in casual clothes after spending thirteen years wearing uniform.

Of course, Edward is not actually the type to trust after only 2 books... I mean movies! I mean years! tongue

@Deadbeat: Well, some people still have to wear uniform... And besides, after university that uniform will be replaced by a suit.

I personally find even the book's robe over casual to be more uniformy than I'm used to, or like. *Never went to a school that had a uniform.*

Whatever, I'm just applying my own prejudices to this.

Hell, I just realised I've still got the shirt I was wearing the day I finished Primary School nearly ten years ago.
