    Site-Wide Plot #7
    #1
    SWP #7
    [Image: pUSSgTd.png]

    At last, SWP7 is upon us! Anti-halfbreed sentiment has been steadily growing over recent years, coming to a head with the introduction of a halfbreed ban at Hogwarts. What does this mean for the future of halfblooded students? Citizens? Of magical society at large?  Only you can help to determine that!

    Code:
    <img src="https://cdn.nickpic.host/images/IJD4uX.png" title="Took part in Charming's seventh sitewide plot" />

    Anyone is able to take part in SWP7 in even a small way, but in order to earn the stamp that proves you’ve done so, you must complete at least three of the following during the duration of the plot:
    • Complete a thread (10+ posts/3+ are your own) in which the halfbreed ban or things that result of it is the main topic of discussion.
    • Complete a read-only or thread in which your student character discovers they cannot return to Hogwarts.
    • Complete a read-only or thread in which your student character scrambles to procure the requisite number of grandparents
    • Write at least three related letters or journal entries
    • Attend (or stage) a protest or rally (5+ posts from your character)
    • Submit a letter or editorial to the Daily Prophet
    • Contact the staff with other ideas of how you might be involved—if they go for it, it’s all yours!
    (You may do the same thing twice to count as two!)

    Halfbreed Ban

    The terminology of the halfbreed ban requires that every student be able to provide evidence of four human grandparents (human, not magical, so your muggleborns are safe!) in order to attend Hogwarts in September. This list is an inclusive “sorting” of affected students as of July16th, 2017, and will be updated intermittently. Rather than immediately pull your student from school, players are encouraged to have it be a ‘process’ that occurs from the end of term until sometime in August for #FunWithRealism~

    DEFINITELY SAFE
    The following characters have procured all grandparents and so will be returning to Hogwarts in the fall.
    @Vesta Bones
    @Timmy McGonagall
    @Cora Smith
    @Ruby Urquart
    @Demelza McGonagall

    @Gretchen Lestrange
    @Blythe Fairchild
    @Kristoffer Lestrange
    @Percese Bolić
    @Germander Macnair

    PROBABLY SAFE
    The following characters will most likely be able to procure all grandparents unless there is plot incentive for you to do otherwise. Think carefully—actions have consequences! In cases of siblings, please consult relations before making the final decision.

    Olive told me yesterday that "Also I didn't know that birth registrations weren't mandatory until 1875. There soooooo should've been a bunch of students who just weren't ever registered so have no paper trail". Just so you know >D

    So the way I read that article was that students who are returning are doing so after Christmas, and then they'll permanently be a year behind their former classmates, correct? E.g. someone who would have been a fourth year this year would take third year classes next semester and start fourth year in 1888?

    Yup! It'll be up to the students/families to decide if it's worth it to them.

    For those going back, will former fifth years have to take their OWLs again? Or since they already got those grades, do they just take the classes again?

    (Sadly not asking for my poor Acacia, even though she deeply wishes to return.)

    Acacia made papers that she posted around Hogsmeade against Half-Breed prejudice, and a letter to the DP editor on the topic. Your character may have opinions on this.

    I don't think they should have to! Give 'em a nice break during exams instead ;)
