DISCLAIMER: << At current the Wizarding World venue is on a hiatus >> The Wizarding World Venue follows an Open Play ideology. As such plot events are more in the hands of players rather than any appointed storytellers. This also means that the venue is more freeform in character creation, though character approval is still required. Because of this characters in order to travel to other venue areas, special permission is required from that venues admin as certain characters will not be appropriate outside of Open Play areas where centralised or personal run plot may be affected. Please keep this in mind when creating your character.
Creation Rules for The Wizarding World
The venue is focused around the city of London.
Adult Wizards are likely to be common (especially as the majority of students graduating from the Hogwarts venue are likely to move here).
The Magical World in the current day
Following the defeat of Voldemort and the end of the second wizarding war, Wizardingkind sought to return things to as they were while also attempting to make up for suffering caused in the war itself. Over the years things progressed with muggle-borns returning to Hogwarts and seats on the International Confederation of Wizardy bring offered to representatives of other supernatural groups. For awhile things were looking good, despite the attempted actions of a few remaining dark sympathisers. As the atrocities of the war are forgotten, so are the lessons learnt however. Old views and prejudices return to light, spurred on by difficulties with certain supernatural groups and the voices of the pureblood families.
