Charming is a Victorian Era Harry Potter roleplay set primarily in the village of Hogsmeade, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the non-canon village of Irvingly. Characters of all classes, both magical and muggle — and even non-human! — are welcome.

With a member driven story line, monthly games and events, and a friendly and drama-free community focused on quality over quantity, the only thing you can be sure of is fun!

    Networking Guidelines & Coding
    #1
    Networking Upgrade
    In order to help organize the networking forum and reduce clutter we're asking you to do one thread for yourself and all the characters you want to network at the time.



    At the top of your networking post you will want to include the following:
    Code:
    <b>Player Name</b> OOC Name
    <b>Contact: </b> Best Contact Info (PM which account/AIM/Skype/etc) include a link if PM is your primary preference! Or you can just leave it with a "reply here".

    Now! Here's the form per character you want to network, feel free to add/delete any info you want, these are just the basics. While this form is not required, the requested information is as follows, just so we're all giving the same info. If you have a form that you like, share! Feel free to modify as you like. My example is done in a totally different way, but contains the same information outlined below.
    Code:
    <b>Character:</b> <a href="App Link here">Name</a>
    <b>Quick Facts:</b>
    <blockquote><b>Age:</b> ##
    <b> House:</b> G/H/R/S
    <b>Grad Year:</b> 18xx
    <b>Class:</b> U/M/L
    <b>Reputation:</b> 1-5
    <b>Blood/Race:</b> PB/HB/MB/Vamp/Veela/etc
    <b>Occupation:</b> Self explanatory</blockquote>

    <b>Needs:</b> What you’re looking for!
    <blockquote><b>Friends/Classmates/Former Classmates:</b> Pick which apply, and give deets about what you’re looking for.
    <b>Hurls:</b> List the requirements your character has for hurling (aka romantic) matches.</blockquote>

    Other suggestions could include, extended family, co-workers, ex-lovers, staff, whatevs!


    How you proceed from here on is up to you, we suggest adding and deleting characters from one single post at the top of your networking page. If you have a lot you'd like to network at one time, do more than once post if you like. You may also want to include a post below the initial one as a work space for things in progress and a place to organize your thoughts, but it's not necessary. Feel free to bump your networking up as frequently as once a week but no more than that please! If your networking gets too long as you complete something or remove a character and would like to free up some room, please post in Maintenance to have posts cleaned out.

    Please mark your most current Networking O for open!

    If you have any questions feel free to post them here or speak with a member of staff.

    APPLICATION (name)
    AGE | HOUSE CLASS of '## | BLOOD/CLASS
    OCCUPATION

    BLURB with background info and needs/wants!







    Code:
    <center><div style="width: 450px; text-align: justify;"><img src="gif url" align="left" Hspace="10" Vspace="5">[align=center][size=medium]<a href="application url">NAME</a> [/size]
    AGE | HOUSE CLASS of '## | CLASS/BLOOD (I did in the -B-C way)
    OCCUPATION[/align]

    BLURB
    </div></center>

    How I did my new networking! The gifs are 160x160 but you could reasonably use whatever you want! If you want to alternate the sides like I did, after the gif url where it says align='left' change it to 'right' and voila!

  • Lovers! Good luck boys because she's awful.

    19 | UCPB | Gryffie Class of '87 | Welcome Witch | 3
    This bitch is bad and I love her very much. She was a Gryffindor and was very shy in school, but now she's wild and gossiped about and most people from good society don't like her. She also doesn't support your pureblood and classist bullshit. Wants to heal and likes to help plants and make potions. Very smart (but also very stupid when it comes to people). Beware.

    She needs lots of friends (only cool people pls, and probably ladies). She also needs enemies with people who don't like her (because she's petty and probably doesn't like them back). She could have hurls but isn't very charming with men.
