Visit The Canon World of Harry Potter
This board is played in the years immediately following the re-opening of Hogwarts Castle after the Battle. Those who have died are honored with a memorial along side that of Albus Dumbledore's tomb. Those who lived have returned to their posts to carry on and bravely teach the message of tolerance, honor, and perseverance. Professor McGonagall now sits as Headmistress of Hogwarts, Horace Slughorn has returned to continue his post as Potions Master, the Defence Against the Dark Arts curse is now broken, and a new Professor for both it Transfiguration, and Muggle Studies now preside.
In the magical world, the Minister of Magic is Kingsley Shacklebolt, who has been very popular with the way he has handled things following the fall of the Dark Lord. All of the known Death Eaters have either been killed, prosecuted, or have disappeared for fear of their own lives. Any supporters of the Dark Lord are under close scrutiny or have been prosecuted, though some were able to avoid trouble with technicalities causing some animosity among the wizarding world.
While the Dark Lord has been defeated, suspicion, fear, and anger still remain. It has only been a few short years and with lives having been lost, people persecuted and tortured, there is still a long time before many can forgive let alone forget.
_________________________________________________________________All canon information is in play for this board. Our canon is only what has been published in the books, or what JKR has given as factual to the world. Where we have a lack of canonical or inconsistent information, we have attempted to fill in with the most plausible and reasonable presumptions based on the facts that we have available to us.
We invite anyone who is interested in playing in the world of JKR's invention to join us. Here we honor and adhere to canon rather than adapt her imagination to our own. Some people find this stifling and difficult, but others truly enjoy the challenge of creating, developing, and playing a character in a world with it's own rules and limitations and reality. Fanfictions are encouraged and welcome to be posted in their section of the board, but when in the game we ask that you leave your own world behind and enter the magical one of Harry Potter.
CWHP likes to consider itself a learning forum where players from every experience level and background can come to grow and learn from one another. You don't have to have extensive knowledge of the canon world, but a basic knowledge is needed. If you have read at least one book, then you don't have anything to worry about.
