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.

Kaspar the Friendly SpookFIRST! 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.

Kaspar the Friendly SpookThere 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.
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.

Kaspar the Friendly SpookTrue, they could... Then again, that's a characteristic of over half of Slytherin house.
But of course!
Kaspar the Friendly SpookAnyway, 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.
This is all Decade's fault.Oh, are we going already? Sweet.
Kaspar the Friendly SpookYep! Also, hi, Loudead! *Hugs.*
This is all Decade's fault.Hmmm...
@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.

This is all Decade's fault.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.
Kaspar the Friendly SpookIt should be my deathpigeon's and my characters, not me and deathpigeon's characters...
Thank you for asking! We're using the book's description of a robe over casual clothes. A wild Grammar Nazi appears! No really, I'll clean up my grammar.

This is all Decade's fault.OK. Not quite sure about that, but...
This is all Decade's fault.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.
Kaspar the Friendly SpookOf course, Edward is not actually the type to trust after only 2 books... I mean movies! I mean years!

This is all Decade's fault.*facepalm*
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!! @Deadbeat: Well, some people still have to wear uniform... And besides, after university that uniform will be replaced by a suit.

This is all Decade's fault.I had to wear a suit for my last two years.
Kaspar the Friendly SpookI 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.*

This is all Decade's fault.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.

Kaspar the Friendly SpookAnd I'm applying mine, which are very anti-uniform...
