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!

    The activity check is underway! All posts now count towards November contests and the December AC :)

    You may reactivate lost accounts beginning Wednesday, November 4th at 11:00am EST. The exception is players who do not have any active accounts—they may reactivate one immediately.

    That said, the actual deactivations have not yet been completed. Want to know who you’ve lost? (Hopefully no one!) Check out the PB listing.

    More updates to follow.

    if I could marry Bee I would but I can't so I ship our characters instead.

    Congratulations to Emma for winning October's PW with 394 across Aleksei Nichols, Claton Ross, Eoin Friel, Jacques Michaud, Lochlan Cleary, Mundungus MacFusty, Owen McKnight, Sparrow Bloodworth, Tristan Michaud and Warren Lucky.

    Good luck to this month's contestants!

    Calculations for NaNo; Posting Edition have also begun. It's not too late to join the fun! (It should be noted that only posts made after you sign up count!)

    Sign up for the November Thread Roulette! Open 'til the 9th, pairings announced on the 10th. (May also be useful to anyone who needs more things for NaNo!)

    An update dump of sorts since we’ve been quiet for a while:

    STUDENT QUIDDITCH: We currently have two positions available, both needed for the Ravenclaw/Slytherin match that could be posted at any second. Literally. If you’re interested in playing Ravenclaw Beater (male in year 2+) or Slytherin Chaser (year 2+), please post in maintenance to request the account update AND PM me immediately with the form below:
    [b]House & Position:[/b] ie Gryffindor Chaser
    [b]Build:[/b] Scrawny, average, athletic, sturdy, fat
    [*]House Team – years [i]not including current[/i] ie 3 years
    [*]Club Quidditch – years [i]not including current[/i]
    [b]Broom:[/b] School, older (5+ years), mid-range (< 5 years old but not super high-end), top-of-the-line.  If it seems suspect for your character, I will question it xD School brooms are available to all, free of charge, and are the best choice for a LC character unless they inherit one elsewhere.
    Both positions will have been filled this past September. Please remember that females need permission from a parent/guardian!

    ADULT QUIDDITCH: As per Anna’s (@'Georgianna Shacklebolt'’s suggestion, coaches have been added to our occupations listings! Coaches must have played at the professional level for at least seven years and presently be thirty-five or older (to avoid coaching people older than they are!), though the latter can be worked around if everything is handled IC. They are pay level four. FUN FACT! You do not have to coach a team you played for.

    VACANCIES: We have a few notable vacancies on our occupations list that you might not have been aware of. If you have an existing character looking for a professional change (or mistakenly thought there were no noteworthy occupations available for new characters), you might be interested in…
