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!

    House Points can only be earned through IC threads - this encourages IC class participation and a more realistic Hogwarts roleplay area. Professors, Head Boy/Girl and Prefects can add and deduct house points. However, prefects cannot add or deduct house points from each other, nor can they add or deduct points larger than 10 for each task. Head Boy/Girl can add and deduct house points from prefects as well as each other.

    Detentions are often doled out in addition to house point deductions. Detentions in this era were most often corporal punishment: hanging students by their wrists in the dungeons for a few days, whippings, beatings, physical labor without the use of magic, or something otherwise dangerous to the student's person - such as entering the Forbidden Forest.

    Earning House Points
    House Points are earned in increments of five.

    * Automatic detention.
    ** May lead to expulsion.

    If rule breaking is spotted in a private thread that takes place at Hogwarts, professors/student staff may PM a member of Charming's staff for permission to enter (if certain reasonable conditions are met) and dole out punishments.

    In order for house points to be added or deducted to/from the totals, professors/student staff must post a reply to this thread with the below code filled out. These will be kept on record here.

    Code:
           
           [b]Student:[/b]
    [b]House:[/b]
    [b]Staff Member:[/b] who awarded/deducted the points
    [b]Points:[/b] +/- #
    [b]Reason:[/b] Please try to be specific but not prolific.
