    Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

    Teachers Hogwarts school is an ancient academy of magic. Students enter at age eleven with a rudimentary knowledge of the magical arts and leave at seventeen as fully qualified Witches and Wizards. What one studies at school may determine one's future employment opportunities. The Castle is staffed with a variety of faculty. Five permanent teachers and the headmaster make up the school's permanent, salaried staff. Teachers head of one of Hogwart's four Houses. Hogwarts is one of the most magically defended places in Britain:


    • Disapparation is impossible within school grounds
    • Sneaking around school grounds is difficult, owing to a number of spies loyal to the school lurking about in forests and towers
    • The areas surrounding the castle are inhabited by unfriendly creatures


    Core Subjects

    This class allows students a window into the realm of casting hexes and changing the appearance of objects and yourself. (Increases willpower and hexes)

    Potions

    Teachers are responsible for teaching lessons, giving tests, and sending out supply lists to all students for their class. The Headmaster will oversee the sorting, the running of the school, and send all official correspondences to the students from teachers. Students will earn a minimum of 1 point in proficiency for each area for taking a course, but may be awarded up to 8 based on grades in respective classes, given by teachers for performance in the class.

    O.W.L.S. and N.E.W.T.S will be determined by the score students receive in each class During the 5th and 7th years, students will have the opportunity to earn 10 proficiency points in all classes instead of the normal 5 which correspond to the six grading scales of the tests: Outstanding, Exceeds Expectationg, Acceptable, Poor, Dreadful, Troll.

    The four houses of Hogwarts compete in the annual House Cup. The house cup is awarded to the house that has the most points at the end of the year. Professors of the school may award points for good behavior or take points away for bad behavior in the appropriate thread. Winners of the House Cup will receive unique bonuses.

    Students will receive at least 1 willpower for passing each class they take every year, but up to five. Willpower is awarded at moderator discretion for RP done during the schoolyear. Students could earn anywhere from 1-10 willpower. Graduating from Hogwarts will automatically earn a student 10 willpower.


    Students Upon entry into the school, First-Years are sorted into one of four houses. The sorting hat takes personality and personal preference for house into consideration. Throughout their school careers, students can increase their willpower and magic mastery by taking an active role in school. The more a student participates, the higher his scores and the more proficient he becomes at whatever area of magic he studies. Students will earn at least three points per category per year.

    Students that distinguish themselves may be given titles and positions. Heads of houses will be given the option to name any students in their houses Prefects in their fifth year of study and Head Boy or Head Girl in their seventh year. These awards and positions may strengthen a student's Willpower.

    Students are expected to attend class, gather materials needed for class from respective shops, and do appropriate course work.

    NOTE THAT IT TAKES SEVEN YEARS TO GRADUATE FROM HOGWARTS, SO BE PREPARED FOR FOURTEEN WEEKS OF HOGWARTS RP (unless you drop out)

Wizards can begin a search for these items by informing moderators they wish to seek out a particular magical item and then do the necessary RP to uncover them.

    Casting Spells

    Willpower

    Willpower refers to the mental stamina and fortitude of a caster. The willpower often determines the strength and effectiveness of each spell that is cast. A first year Hogwarts student could perform the Cruciatus curse, but it would hardly be effective. In order for spells to be effective and serve the caster better, the caster must have strength of mind and the concentration required to perform the spell. Each Wizard or Witch will have a level of Willpower according to their level of training and life experiences. If someone engages in a lot of duels, or has a need to use defensive or offensive spells often either as part of their job or simply because they are a target, their willpower will increase according to their actions.

    Willpower is assigned on a scale between 1 and 150 for each with or wizard and aids in resisting spells of the spiritual sort, as well as aiding in casting spells that require more concentration. Willpower will allow for spells to have more effective results.

    Accuracy

    Even the best wizards miss. Accuracy is one of the few factors outside a caster's control. Dice will determine whether or not spells reach their targets. The area of the duel will affect the accuracy of spells.

    Open spaces (such as fields, an empty room): 2/10 miss chance
    Occupied spaces (such as occupied rooms, or a hall with columns and pillars): 4/10 miss chance
    Cluttered spaces (such as forests, the room of requirement where the students dumped contraband: 6/10 miss chance

    Proficiency

    Proficiency refers to training and knowledge of magic. There are several proficiency levels that will determine the overall effectiveness of different types of activities and Qualified wizards have an edge over students in most areas. All areas of proficiency are graded on a scale of 1-150. Wizard's or Witches' proficiency level will determine their effectiveness in each area of Magic. If a Dark Wizard with a high proficiency in curses does considerable damage to a victim, it would require a wizard with proficient healing skills to repair the damage.

    Potion Making

    Spells


    Every spell is categorized into either offensive, defensive, or neutral spells. In addition, Every spell has a rating referring to the difficulty in conjuring

    KEY:

    O = offensive
    D = defensive
    N = neutral
    Di = difficulty of the spell to use (ranked 1-10)

    Proficiency Scale:

    Spells can be performed perfectly when they fall within the proficiency rank a character possesses. For example, when someone performs a level 1 curse with 5 proficiency, it will have no chance of failure unless countered or unless it misses (see willpower). When the same wizard with 5 proficiency attempts a spell above his skill level, the point deficit will be converted into a chance for failure and a modifier added. Attempting spells above one's proficiency level will have an automatic base failure chance of 30%. Then the point deficit will be added to the failure chance.

    So the same wizard attempts a level 2 curse with 5 proficiency points in curses. The chance for failure if 40%, the base 30% failure rate added to the point deficit of ten points. When the same wizard attempts a level 5 spell, his chances decrease to 80% failure and so forth.

    Level 1 spells: 1-10
    Level 2 spells: 10-15
    Level 3 spells: 15-25
    Level 4 spells: 25-35
    Level 5 spells: 35-55
    Level 6 spells: 55-75
    Level 7 spells: 75-95
    Level 8 spells: 95-110
    Level 9 spells: 110-125
    Level 10 spells: 125-150

    Moderators must be involved in the process of casting spells whenever it is a situation involving a legitimate duel, a battle, on Special Item or Special Skill missions or whenever two opposing wizards/witches are facing one another. Classroom spell casting or duels done for fun will be subject to less formal rules.

    The Killing Curse (Avada Kedavra, O, Di:10) - Kills the victim

    A note on Dark Magic: Dark Magic may cause some wounds that are harder to heal with basic potions or magic.

    A note on Unforgivable Curses: These curses can only be utilized by highly skillful wizards. These curses are empowered by the emotions and intent of the Wizard or Witch casting them; thus you must have the intent in torturing someone just for the enjoyment in order to use Crucio's full potential. The same goes for Avada Kedavra; you must have the intent to kill for the enjoyment of killing or with a heart set on killing someone out of pure revenge. No righteous sense of justice may be able to use these Curses without them being under-powered or backfire. Thus a mere student cannot truly use the full potential of any Curse unless they are highly skilled and/or have the pure intent of killing/torturing/controlling someone without any remorse. It is illegal to use unforgivable curses on humans.

    Another note on Unforgivable Curses: At this point, Aurors are the only legal users for these three curses due to their task in hunting down the last of the Death Eaters. Outside of that class, anyone who uses it; both Dark and Good Wizard, will be immediately sent to Azkaban after a quick trial. It is impossible to escape or be innocent in the case of using an Unforgivable Curse; whether it succeeds or not. It is known that the Ministry may pardon an unauthorized user in the Unforgivable Curses, but it is very rare.

    Default Re: Game Rules

    Economy/Salaries

    The currency is Galleons
    Salaries
    Hogwarts Teacher: 7,500 per year
    Headmaster: 12,500 per year
    Regular level Ministry employees: 7,500 per year
    Department heads: 10,000 per year
    Minister of Magic: 15,000 per year
    Students: 500 Galleons per year minimum (random number 0-5*50 extra income)


    Economy
    There are two primary places to start up shops:
    Diagon Alley - 5,000 to start up shop
    Hogsmeade - 2,500 to start up a shop

    Note: You may own multiple shops
    Shop 1: 100,000
    Shop 2: 150,000
    Shop 3: 200,000
    - Cost for each new shop goes up by 50k
    - You may also take loans from Gringotts in order to make a new shop, but remember to pay them back. These are Goblins and they don't like their loans going unpaid. You'd best pay back the loan or Gringotts owns your store now.

    Shops will earn a yearly income, this will be done by rolls at the end of every week (Each shop will get good profits from NPC profits)
    Modifiers include:
    - Rping in shop (Ex: Rp taking inventory, selling items to NPC customers, etc)
    - Advertisement (Ex: Daily Prophet ads)


    Economic Rolls
    Formula: 2,500*D12 minus 2% loan (to Gringotts)
    Possible Modifiers:
    - +1 in rp (Ex: rping inventory or sale to an NPC customer)
    - +1 in ads

    Disclaimer: If you open an apothecary shop or a shp that deals with resources used in potions or other game aspects, a random roll will determine how many items you can sell in that shop for a year

    Death Eaters
    With the fall of Lord Voldemort, the Death Eaters have scattered like the wind, awaiting the rise of a new and powerful Dark Wizard who would reunite them under one banner and bring the fear of Voldemort's minions back into the Wizarding and Muggle worlds. Various small groups have formed under guidance and leadership of veteran Death Eaters who had served Voldemort during the Second Wizarding War. They not only fight against the Ministry of Magic but have a tendency to fight among each other; vying for the power and influence that was once held by their master, Voldemort. Despite their scattered numbers, the Death Eaters still rely on old allies such as the werewolves and Giants in order to remain a threat to the tranquility of order.

    Small groups and gangs of Death Eaters have formed around charismatic Death Eaters who were former Lieutenants of Voldemort during the last war. These groupings usually resort to small to large-scale acts of terrorism, murder and other vile deeds as a means to keeping the world aware of their existence and that they will return some day. These small groups will be the foundation of the future unification of the Death Eaters and Dark Wizard; like it was under Lord Voldemort. It will take a sole Death Eater or perhaps a group of talented ones to fully unite them under one banner.

    Attacks by Death Eaters
    High profile attacks on muggles or groups of people will involve an immediate response by the Ministry

    Low profile attacks, such as assassinations on individuals and all sorts of covert attacks, depends on:
    - If the target is killed without contacting the authorities, the Ministry will not respond (rolls will be used)
    - If the target is maimed yet makes contact (specifically with the Ministry) or the covert attack fails and the Ministry is contacted, MoM will respond immediately. Thus the Death Eater has the choice of retreating or pursuing the target (rolls will be used; odds against Death Eater)


    Rules for Duels


    When a wizard or group of wizards engages in a duel, the proficiency and willpower of each wizard will be taken into consideration. A powerful wizard may be able to effectively duel more than a single opponent. The rules for casting spells apply.

    When a spell is cast, the wizard defending has two options. He may either counter with an offensive spell which may cause the two spells to meet at the same time:



    Or the spell may be blocked by a charm of some sort:



    The duel will then play out using the appropriate rolls. The attacker will normally be able to cast the first spell, which the defender can attempt to counter in any way. Attacking another Wizard or Witch does not always only require one spell, multiple spells may be used in succession if it is necessary for a single attack, though if not done quickly your opponent may have a greater chance to parry the attack.

    Ambushes

    Note that one may not always be given an opportunity to defend himself. Your enemies may sneak up on you, if they choose to do so. Certain magical objects may conceal them, or they have hatched a plot to sneak up on you. A D20 roll will determine the outcome of sneaking, with modifiers added for enchantments of defense, magical items of concealment, or magical items that give warning of approaching enemies, such as a sneakocope. In general, without any enchantments or devices, a wizard will have a D1-4 chance of taking their opponents completely by surprise.

    Captures

    When the object of the duel is to capture your opponent, and your opponent is of age to apparate, an escape roll will be given. Unless your opponent has been hit with a spell that would prevent them from fleeing, such as the body bind curse, there will be an opportunity for a successful disapparation (90% chance of escaping unscathed).

    Random Events
    Every player will be visited by random events several times every year. The way in which a wizard deals with these events may lead to increases in proficiency.

    Player Rules

    Auxilary Characters

    Auxilary characters are allowed, but their impact on gameplay must be minimal. Auxilary characters may not collect income, be appointed to leadership positions, hold non-duplicate offices, help main characters do anything to unduly advance, or in any way threaten a main character. Auxilary characters may become main characters if a main character dies.

    Death Rolls

    Once a character turns 80 there will be death rolls for a 25% chance to die each year of natural causes.
