WELCOME: to Engorgio, a Harry Potter role playing game [here after initialed 'RPG']. This community will home adult situations, and looks to be as canon as possible. We're looking for mature (though experience isn't necessary), and active role-players with an interest in both relationship and event aimed journals.
STORYLINES:...are entirely up to you. However, the roles of Albus Dumbledore and Voldemort will not be open for role-play applicants, as they may be needed for mandatory role-play plots. The students will be in the their sixth year. This will be a VERY dark RPG, character death included.
ACTIVE? Activeness is good. Very good. One post a week is what's required of you. The more the better. If your character hasn't posted in two weeks, without prior notice, you will be kicked out of the community. We do understand that life does exist outside of RPG's. If a vacation/family issue (or anything of the sort) comes up, and you won't have either the time to post, or no internet access: just make sure the moderators are informed.
CHARACTER PERSONALITY: Stay in character. That's all we ask. Draco Malfoy WiLl NOt StaRt TypInG liKe hE ThIs. Ron Weasley will not refer to anyone as a 'homie'. Harry Potter will not start sexing up McGonagall. Filch will not start painting flowers on the school walls. Dumbledore will not wear jeans and t-shirt.
RELATIONSHIPS: Nothing (much) is taboo. As aforementioned, Smut/Slash/Het...anything. Though, teacher/student relationships will not be allowed, except for special cases. If Snape/? is what you want, present your case to a mod, and go from there. All NC-17 or sexually oriented logs/posts must be put behind an LJ cut: no exceptions.
ROLE PLAYING: RPing will be done using AOL instant messenger (AIM). There are no restrictions with screen names. Using your personal SN is fine. Using an In-character SN is also fine.
JOIN? Great! Once having read all the above rules, please fill out the application at the bottom of this page. All character journals LJ handle/screen name must have some affiliation with said character (Example: Hermione's handle will not be "hotstuff69696"). If your character already has a movie actor...use that actor for your user icons (Example: Daniel Radcliffe will be used for Harry). If no actor/actress is given, feel free to choose your own. But, don't overdo it.
CHARACTER LIST: All characters without a journal link beside them are open for play. OC's are currently not being accepted.
