|Q: Can I hold a character?|
A: Yes you can. You can hold a character or a Played By for 7 days.
Q: Is this game set in real time?
A: Yes with the ability to backdate threads.
Q: I need a code to make a journal! Where can I get one?
A: If you already have a journal on Insane Journal you can go to Code Share and make a post asking to see if others will share an extra code or two. If you are new to Insane Journal and can't find a code please make a note in your application. The mods have a few codes that they can use and are willing to give them out to anyone that is accepted into the game. We will email you the code after we have accepted you!
Q: Are original characters accepted?
Q: Would it be all right to re-use a journal which has absolutely nothing to do with the character's name? Or is it better to just find a new code?
A: Yes, it's okay to reuse a journal. But we can also get you a code once you are accepted if you want to make a new journal.
Q: Is there a limit on which characters and fandoms may be applied for?
A: No, with one exception! No canon Harry Potter character. Any fandoms besides Harry Potter are open. Just check the Character List and Hold pages to make sure the character you want to play hasn't been taken.
Q: When does the game start and what year is it?
A: The game started on July 23rd, 2015 and is still actively being played.
Q: Do we need a Played By? Can we use just use cartoon or anime icons instead?
A: Yes, you do need a Played By. You can't use icons of the character from a cartoon, game, or anime.
Q: Where is Hogwarts located in this RP?
A: In this RP universe, Hogwarts is in the USA. More specifically, Hogwarts is located somewhere in the Appalachian Mountains.
Q: Is there a Hogwarts in Scotland like in the books?
A: No, there is no Hogwarts in Scotland. That school goes by a different name which is Pigfarts. Hogwarts has always been located in the USA since it was built.
Q: Is there a character like Voldemort in this RP?
A: Yes. Lady Nyx terrorized the wizard-verse until her 'death' thirty years ago. The legion that followed her was a large one. These individuals were (and possibly still are) incredibly dedicated to her cause and have done unspeakable acts in her name.
Q: What other locations are in the game other than Hogwarts?
A: Marble City, Quinque Alley, Hogsmeade, Azkaban, the Forbidden Forest... it’s all there. You gotta buy your supplies some place, right?
Q: Do I need to have read Harry Potter to play in the game?
A: We would like to say yes but we understand not everyone loves reading. So we suggest you watch all eight movies to get a better understanding of the Harry Potter world because you need to understand it to play in the game.
Q: Can my character be a werewolf, a Metamorphmagus, or a Animagus?
A: The mods understand that all three of these things are very much part of the Harry Potter world and we have talked it over.
We will be accepting three or four werewolves but remember werewolves are looked down upon worse than Squibs by the whole magical community and they aren't the fun kind of werewolf like in Teen Wolf. (4/4 taken)
We will be accepting only three Metamorphmagus because they were extremely rare in the book. First three characters to apply for one will get them. (2/3 taken)
As for Animagus it is a learned trait so given enough time anyone could learn it. Unless you can give us an unbelievably good reason why your teenage character would be an Animagus then only adults will be allowed to be Animagus in this game. Adults that took the time to practice and train can be registered Animagus.
Q: What are the guidelines regarding religions/cults?
A: The only real guideline for religion in the game is that Wicca isn’t allowed due to JK Rowling saying it is too different from the witches and wizards she created. As religion is allowed cults would be allowed to.
Q: Is a character allowed to have a mental or physical disability?
A: Both mental and physical disabilities are allowed in the game.
Q: Is my character allowed to be half veela or troll or another mythical creature?
A: Having a non-human parentage is allowed in game but the non-human has to follow the Harry Potter universe rules (like how elves in the books are short and small and not beautiful and human-like like in the Lord of the Rings).
Q: Are canon mythical creatures native to other fandoms allowed in the game?
A: Canon mythical creatures native to other fandoms are not allowed. Only mythical creatures that are allowed are ones that are in Harry Potter.
Q: Can we apply to be a professor or assistance professor?
A: Yes, you can apply to be a professor or assistance professor (something we added to the school so their are more adult options). You can place the subject on hold on the Holds Page or just add it into the application. But much like the Prefects and Quidditch positions first come first serve.
Q: How young can my character be?
A: As the majority of characters are 16 or 17, I've decided the youngest age we will be accepting will be 15 which means the character would be in their 5th year. Myself and the other players would find someone younger than 15 would be just to awkward in this game..
Q: Why is the mod so cool?
A: It’s natural. I'm a good-lookin’ badass. Have you seen our guns?
