  • [Recruitment Thread] [OWOD Venues] [Mixed Genre PBP Site] HBN

    Hello All! I've resurrected a PBP FF RPG I began over a decade ago (time has flown!). It's called 'Hogwarts by Night' but don't let the potterness of the title dissuade you.

    In The Wizarding World (fantastic beasts and where to find them, the book) It lists Vampires and Werewolves as sentient beings. Using this knowledge I melded Old World of Darkness with The Magical World (replaced m:ta) and dropped them all into a setting together. It's a lot more cohesive than you'd think.

    I need players to get the lifeblood moving in it again. It is a Free-Form Play-by-post Forum with hints of PVP depending on the situation. Mostly we are just social RP. The players I've got right now are long time veterans of the world of darkness and as I am married to a OWOD/NWOD/CoC writer (Matthew Sanderson), I take full advantage of using his brain to think of things to throw at the players.

    If you're curious, or know someone who'd like this kind of RP, Please share! The link is: http://www.hogwartsbynight.com

    We also have a Hogwarts by Night FB group for being social behind the scenes.

    Thank you for your time!

    So how does the whole mage thing work out in your game?

      I've replaced Mage with Harry Potter. Using the spells, setting and history from the canon books and movies. There are lexicons online of the magic HP Wizards can do and enough lore through the HP Lexicon to emulate what magic is and how it is used. We also know there is an 'Order of Merlin' so it is quite possible for someone to homebrew orders into the Wizarding World.

      There is the issue of Wizards getting embraced etc... they basically are automatically switched to OWOD status and lose Wizarding powers.

              I may sign up. I'm definitely checking it out.

              EDIT: I checked it out and you have a good game going, but I cannot join this because your game recognizes the Week of Nightmares, and I do not play in games that use the Week of Nightmares (the Ravnos are one of my favorite clans and hold a special place in my heart because my first LARP character was a Ravnos from Ireland). However, with that being said, you do have a well-thought out and well-made chronicle setting and I think people will find it to be very enjoyable! And I do wish you the best. I will even encourage some of my friends to join, as I have a lot of friends who are big into Harry Potter.

                Heh yeah well I tried to bring back the Ravnos and because of issues with other players and accusations of being racist, I had to do something with them. I thought about bringing them back, but my other admin has said what we wrote should be left alone since we thought out a a reason and it melds with the background. Sorry that's left you out, I was gutted by them going away too.

                I will pass this forum talk to him so he can see your comment, and I'll ask him about the Ravnos again.

                  V20 and Dark Ages V20 have largely resolved the whole racism issue and I never played my Ravnos in a racist or stereotypical manner (My first Ravnos character was Irish, not Romani or Traveller, and I've also played a Japanese-American Ravnos whose vice was compulsive gambling instead of the stereotypical thievery)

                    I'm polling my guardians again to get a final decision on the Ravnos debate.

                      So far it is looking good about bringing them back in, just still waiting on other Guardians to post about it. We'd use the v20 rules if we do (about ravnos)

                        Sounds good to me!

                          Ravnos are back!

                          Creating a Ravnos PC: Due to player issues with the original Clan history we are going to refer to the Dark Ages V:20 Clan background for this Clan. We prefer that they are rare. When they are created they must not have any ties with any Romani, Traveller, or Gypsy backgrounds.

                              Yes, I still do want to play. I've just been distracted by some real-life stuff. I'll come up with a character soon.
