She loves him not.
"I'll bleed wherever I damn well please!" She shouted, scowling at him. As if to prove it, she uncovered her nose and shook her head back and forth like a dog attempting to dry its fur of water. Little droplets of blood rained on the sidewalk all willy-nilly. Billie Farrow in A Good Dusting

SWP 9: A Pictish Curse!
#1
Site-Wide Plot 9: A Pictish Curse

Almost a year ago, muggles began an archaeological dig near Hogsmeade, one that swiftly proved deadly and so was taken over by the Ministry of Magic. As the dig wrapped up, though, the (presumably) unthinkable happened: the artifacts were stolen, in a case that remains open today. The missing artifacts weren't seen again...

Until now.

The cause of two deaths on New Year's Eve has been traced back to one of the stolen objects, leading the Ministry of Magic to fret that there are more out in the world. And so there are.

Enter the (belated, sorry!) latest SWP from the Charming Team: A Pictish Curse!

Active Threads Looking for Participants
Feeling the Heat
Dancing Queen, Young and...

Though this new CYOA starts as a solo venture, the choices you make can lead you to other individuals... or your doom. Those who participate fully will earn not one, but TWO stamps:


To earn the SWP stamp simply have your character post 7+ times across SWP threads—accounts can be combined. For the CYOA stamp, Participate actively (5+ posts) with the same character in any one Choose Your Own Adventure campaign. Must be enrolled in the campaign for posts to count. Both stamps can be claimed by hitting up the Stamp Station!

This plot is opt-in. Those who choose to participate directly must do so by filling in the form below and submitting it on or before February 29th, 2020—your adventure will start once you do! Those who prefer to be a background character can pop into related open threads, discuss newspaper articles, or serve as a played-NPC (that's totally a thing, guys) in another player's quest!

Code:
[b]Character:[/b]
[b]Risk Level:[/b] Misadventure, Long-Term Effects, or Born to Die (maybe)
[b]Affected or Engaged:[/b] Does your character have one of the artifacts (affected), or are they interested in some freelance investigating (engaged)?
[b]Obtained:[/b] IF AFFECTED, does your character seek out an artifact, or acquire one through chance?

Please keep the following in mind:
  • There is a maximum of two characters per player to be actively involved.
  • Students are limited to "Misadventure" level of shenanigans. Please note that student paths will inevitably be shorter than adult ones.
  • Any thread your character is engaged in set after your first SWP thread may be interrupted by the Suggestionizer ;)
  • Please aim to post at least once a fortnight in your solo threads, and at least once a week in your pair/group threads. (Real life happens, of course!)
  • When you're given your options, some will have clear outcomes whereas others will have hidden outcomes, much like an RPG. "Graceful exit" options will always be made clear, as will anything that can kill your character (if on a potential-death-path).
Happy shenanigans!
