One Year Anniversary of fiery_inception!
We are different from all the rest! If you are looking for quality writing as well as fun play, this is the game for you!
Are you tired of games that degenerate into fluff, smut, crack and soap-opera-style silliness? Tired of one-liners and no character development? Tired of 'Gaywarts'? Tired of games that die after a few months as Muns get 'bored' and move on to the next round of 'inspiration'?
Our game began three years after the end of the events of HBP. We have a LOT of fun exploring the Wide Wizarding World beyond Hogwarts (no Mun-played students or classes), dabbling in politics, businesses, Ministry idiocy, scary situations with still-lingering Death Eaters and much more.
It is not remotely an exaggeration to say we have some of the best quality, most dedicated writers in the role-play fandom. We are an epic-style game, one-year old as of March 1, and going strong! If you are a long-term player with a dedication to your character, this is the game for you!

The Ministry of Magic, determined to prevent the rise of yet another 'Dark Lord', has gone to extremes to try to get control of the more 'dangerous' segments of the population. The Manditory Registration process of all those deemed to be a 'danger' to society has now advanced to the wearing of Ministry tracking devices. Don't we all feel safer now, knowing Remus Lupin and others are wearing collars?
Though there are many still at-large who have avoided the Registry process altogether and are just waiting for someone to lead them.
Hogwarts School, Headed by Minerva McGonagall, has reopened after reconstruction and Minerva has enacted sweeping changes to the Sorting System, in an effort to increase inter-house unity and combat prejudice amongst the students. These changes are being observed with a critical eye - the Headmistress is already proving almost as eccentric as her predecessor, hiring known Registrants and Werewolves to teach children! Minerva McGonagall has planted herself firmly against the Ministry's institutionalised prejudice.
The 'average Joe' just wants to be left alone, to rebuild their lives, open their shops, raise their families, and not live in constant fear anymore! Lucius Malfoy has published a very moving book of his 'Memoirs' regarding his years as a Ministry Spy, and how deeply grieved he is over the things he was forced to see and do in this very difficult and dangerous role. He is slowly stirring the political cauldron with unknown motivations.
There are Death Eaters who were not 'caught', though, waiting and searching for someone to lead them. They are becoming reckless in their search for that leadership. Fenrir Greyback makes random appearances of terror-inspiration, yet has continued to evade capture.
Ministry, Hogwarts, Politics, Criminals, werewolves - they all combine to leave a great deal of upheaval, even in 'peace'.
