From time to time there will be events ranging between passive and active events. Passive events mean we post small changes around the school you need to keep note of when RPing, like the decor of the Great Hall, or the barring of the lake from students. These can range from important to random. Active events are when we host group RPs.Summer Holidays Part 2Type:

This is the second half of the summer holidays. After the 26th, everyone has about a week to prepare for school (get school supplies, go to Diagon Alley, etc) and anything else. School term starts officially on September 1st.
For this half of the holidays, the students are going on a field trip back to the Renaissance (15th century)
for the reason that it's educational (and fun). This is different from the device Hermione had in the stories in that you can't change the past, (thus changing the future) when you return to your own time
. Once everyone returns back to the 21st century, the past sets back to the original state. They also cannot take anything living back to the future (technically shouldn't take anything back at all to satisfy my logic, but that would be no fun). This prevents any sort of gap or loop in the space and time continuum.
This also leaves serious mischief potential. Killing a muse is still out of the question
, and for the most part, killing of other people is out of the question too. Unless you really think your muse is capable of killing someone... Creating colossal collateral damage requires major consequences, so if you want to burn down the coliseum, then be prepared to deal with the consequences. Double check any extremes you might consider before doing it. "Would my muse really do that"? Dumbledore and Snape are the teacher supervisors for this trip
. Both hold the time warp magical devices that allow them to bring the students to the Renaissance. For the sake of simplicity, we're not going into detail about what that is, just know they have it and can use it at any given time, and warp large quantities of people.
The story is, they're foreign students from a prestigious art school called Hogwarts and on a field trip
. Not so far from the truth, but it is of the absolute essence students do not reveal their magical status to muggles. There will be some wizards and wizards in this era, but they will be in hiding as well. They're all staying at the Argenteo Inn (locanda in Italian but let's not get into semantics). And for the sake of simplicity (I like simplicity?), they all acquire the ability to speak and understand multiple languages of that time period through their journals, modified for this trip. It's recommended students shrink their journals when not in use so it's easier to carry around. Don't use magic in front of muggles
, otherwise be prepared to be called a witch and they will attempt to burn you at the stake. Or something.
There are eight groups, five students to each group and this is the sleeping arrangement as well. The groups pair off to make four groups in total, and they are used to move around the city and places so they don't all explore together. The students have free reign on where they want to go, provided their group prefect allows it. Prefect partners are their respective House prefect partners, and are required to work together. The first week of the trip
, wherever your imagination takes you, or whatever you want to do in Italy, go ahead and RP it out. They're staying in Venice, during the Carnival week. The masquerade will be held midway through the first week. During the Carnival, students can dress up like there will be many who are littering the streets all week, or save their costume for the masquerade, it's their choice. Also, all students will be dressed appropriately to the time period at all times. They're only allowed to bring a few personal possessions with them on the trip so choose wisely.
And...I know I'm missing something so I'll probably edit this. Questions can be directed here (or if you see me online, you can IM me there too).( GroupsCollapse )
