SEMPER ARCANUM: A Sixth-Year Harry Potter RPG

~~~ Now Open!~~~

The semper_arcanum universe consists of:

semper_arcanum - main game journal.
sa_logs - RP logs between various characters.
riddle_house - journal for Death Eaters.
twelve_grim - journal for the Order of the Phoenix.
Plus all the individual journals of the game characters.

sa_watch - A place where fans of the semper_arcanum RPG can discuss the on-goings of the game with other fans. Please note that this community was not made by a cast member of semper_arcanum.

The easiest way to read all game posts in chronological order is to read via a character's friendspage, for example, http://www.livejournal.com/users/sa_harry/friends/. All characters have all other characters and communities friended, so you could read from any friendspage and not miss an entry!

If you're interested in reading:

Harry is returning to Hogwarts for his sixth year, not knowing if things will be better or worse than the year before. Students find another way to communicate through the Wizarding Communications Network, and so do those outside the school. As the wizarding world prepares for another war, those in and out of the castle try to go about their lives as normal... but can they really do that? And has Dumbledore really told Harry all there is to know about what binds him to Voldemort, or will some things remain forever a secret?

If you're interested in joining:

semper_arcanum is an active, plot-driven RP. We pick up at the beginning of Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts. While we will not mind "Shipping" (pairing characters in a romantic plot), this will never be the focus of the game. Both heterosexual and homosexual relationships are allowed; however, we reserve the right to ask you to ship responsibly.

The game is played out via the journals, with no third-person, or 'narrative' RP-ing required. Plots are coordinated via the Out of Character journal that you will be given access to if you are accepted.

We are looking for players who are self-motivated and able to think on their feet. The Moderating team may provide a story arc that will allow you to work your character into the fold, but players should be able to coordinate with others and conceive of their own plots. In other words, we cannot always hold your hand.

As of 6/4/2004, the characters we are currently casting for are:

Gryffindor: Seamus Finnigan & Dean Thomas, Colin Creevey

Hufflepuff: Justin Finch-Fletchley

Professors: Filius Flitwick

Other: Narcissa Malfoy, Rubeus Hagrid, Percy Weasley, Rodolphus Lestrange

We may eventually introduce other canon characters in the game. Character names that are bolded are the ones we'd like to fill as soon as possible.

Please look over the application below and fill it out to the best of your ability. A member of the moderating team will get back to you as soon as possible on the status of your application.
