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!

    SOME NOTES:
    Since it was considered improper for young ladies to walk about without chaperons, Hogwarts provides chaperons through teachers and Head of Houses as well as other staff members. They are assigned to a location and whomever wants to go to that particular location will be escorted there in a group. Seeing as the groups could be rather large, it would be easy to escape from the chaperon's view, though is greatly frowned upon and could result in a detention. Third years and higher are allowed to go on the excursions. Students who have written permission from their parents/guardians are allowed to visit their families in Hogsmeade if there is a good reason, such as a family emergency, a wedding, or a funeral. As a note, students are not allowed to leave school for events like family dinners.

    O.W.L.s are tests taken by all fifth years. N.E.W.T.s are tests taken by all seventh years. Students not enrolled in the subject writing on a given day will have that day free of classes, to study for other subjects.

    Quidditch game outcomes (unplayed) are determined by die rolls, coin flips, and player ability.  

    Charming uses house points to determine the winner of the House Cup.

    To apply for a student staff position, please fill out this form and PM it to a staff member, who will then post it up for scoring in the staff forum.  For student quidditch positions, please post in maintenance.

    Quidditch Captains are decided based on seniority, but must be in at least fifth year. Quidditch players during this time period were typically male, due to the rough nature of the sport. As of 25 October 1881, females were banned IC from playing Quidditch, but have been re-allowed as of 30 August 1883. Hogwarts does not have second string quidditch teams.

    N.E.W.T. Requirements

    Below are the grades required for students to enter into NEWT-level classes in a particular subject.  Please note that Art, Music, and Etiquette do not have OWLs or NEWTs, but the first two are offered from third year forward, and the third is mandatory for all years. Hogwarts professors may PM any member of staff to have their requirement added to the list; until they do so, and for unfilled classes, the default requirement is a pass (A).
