Two thousand years ago marked the first encounter between the vampiric and wizarding communities. It was a moment that should have seen greatness when both these great and proud races sought to become allies against the growing populations of non-magical people and Lycanthrops. Unfortunately tragedy would strike the first meeting of these races, when the eldest of the Vampiric family, the Kings, refused to take part in such an occasion. They claimed that it was beneath them and condemned any Vampiric families who went through with the debacle. After a strategized and carefully calculated plan a group of hooded beings, attack the gathering of wizards and vampires. The attack was swift and costly. A wizard from the house of Derthbane accidentally killed a vampire. And that one action in the midst of battle garnered a fierce and deadly accusation from the King Family, who accused the Wizards of a double-cross because their true allegiance lay with the hooded murderers. A blood feud against the whole of the wizarding community was created and the Vampires would feast on their magical brethren with every chance they could.
Centuries later, the relations between the Vampires and Wizards remain as dangerous as it did those many years ago. Both realms have lived and prospered away from the knowledge of their enemies. But every so often a stray member of either clan comes within enemy territory, or a chance encounter with the other clan and the most grizzly of punishments are performed against them. A sadistic ritual of revenge against their ancestors and family members crimes becomes reality. The most notable, the King family, branched off and exiled one of their own who foolishly (by King standards) fell in love with a magical person and thus created a new (albeit forbidden) lineage of wizard and vampiric blood.
Over the years, both societies have seen prosperity and tragedy strike. The wizards fell victim to the greed, madness, and lust for power of one of their own in the name of Lord Voldemort. For years they feared him and what he could do. Until the prophesied hero, Harry Potter, destroyed the Dark Lord once and for all. The Wizarding community was allowed to live free of terror for the first time in many decades and for years nothing but good fortune smiled down upon them. Now as we stand today a new generation of wizards take reigns up in the schools known as Hogwarts, Durmstrung, Madame Beauxbatons, and various other magical institutions to continue their studies and the steady growth of their magical abilities, enduring similar trials as their parents and family members before them. But terror will once again strike the Wizarding community, however, this time they will not be the only victims. A millenia old conspiracy will finally be given fruition. The destruction of one race is imminent. But neither the Vampiric and the Wizarding clans know of such a grand deception as they live their lives carelessly. But time has begun to run out and eventually death and destruction await.
You can be of either Vampiric or Wizarding blood (some Lycans will be allowed but not many). The RPG will start off in the Wizarding World, more specifically in, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry then progress with the story.
For those who choose to be of Wizarding blood, it's your choice of whether your character is a Student, Professor, Qualified, or Ministry Worker. For those who choose to be either Professors or Minister/ Ministry Workers of a particular department, please post in the OOC telling us what class you are interesting in teaching or what Department you're interested in working in. For Professors, if you'd like to be head of a particular house also post which one you're interested in.
As for the houses for the students, you can pick which one you'd like to be in or if you'd like you can play it like the book and have a "sorting hat" pick for you. Just take this quiz and find out which house you belong in:
For those who choose to be of Vampiric Blood you will have the standard superhuman strength, agility, senses, etc. As well as your own brand of magic. There are two types of Vampires those who are created and those who are born. The created Vampires are those who were once human and sired by one of the Vampiric Families, because of that, they will have the normal weaknesses shown in Vampire folklore, IE. Sunlight, Wooden stake, and Holy Water. The Vampires who are born, are immune to everything of a created vampire for the exception of a wooden stake, but they hold their own weaknesses. They can be killed with the use of pure silver. The Vampiric magic is one that only the Pure Vampires can perform. Not everyone can be from an Ancient Family (that too will be limited. So far there are the Kings and the Lees. If you're interested in having your own ancient line just post a brief history of that family and you will be approved or disapproved.)
Please stay within the powers of your chosen clan. And keep it realistic to the world they're in.
This RPG is open to all but PLEASE watch your grammar and spelling and try to post more than 3 lines. Effort will make or break this RPG.
Normal RPG rules apply. (IE, no auto-hitting, no puppetry, no god-moding, et cetera.)
