ah man these are gorgeous! I wish there were some free use journal skins in a similar style, these are just immaculate! Love your template work here.

Hello, one of my friends is a huge HP fan and I was wondering if for his birthday, I could make him an OC and use this template for it. I'd only be making one print of it to give to him for his birthday, and not selling it or anything. I wouldn't be making money off of it in any way. Is that alright?

When it comes to spells, do you have specific ones that are not allowed to be used by first years? Or some that are specific to certain years?

Can I use this app even if I don't intend on joining?
I'd like to make a character but I just won't have time to rp and keep track of events and such. 
Of course, I would link back if I was allowed.

NeniioN Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013
No, I found it too late! Damn, this is the single most beautiful Hogwarts group I've ever found and I missed the application period. That's just sad... TT_TT

I have so many questions...!://

I played and rpg A LOT in the real life(mmos too) but never tried doing something like this. 
I really want to join and was curious about how rpg works on internet/foruns/sites/ here but i really dont have any idea and never tried, my internet sucks to any game i try so something simple like this would be perfect to meUU"

I draw on paper but i dont paint...So how can i make my app on this group then?i really wanna try but i also dont know how to use most of these programs to put colors or modify images (yeah....i am old fashionad like that and it sucks) -_______-'

Hi there!

RP on the internet generally works like and formats much like a play, where each author writes their own script for their own character, interacting with other characters. I'm on the other end of the spectrum having never rp'd in irl/mmos so I don't really know just how far the similarity goes. Google is your friend, there's people much more verbose and gifted with language that can give prime examples. Here's one such post :…

As far as traditional art goes, just color it as you normally would and then scan the image in. You can note the group and one of the mods would be happy to edit it for you to place on the application.

Excuse me!
I'm VERY embarrassed to ask since this was something that was already been previously answered in other coments...
but I've tried myself and could not understand T__________________T"

I have read and reread posts answering the correct place to send your app but my english isnt that good anymore and i could not understand any of them.

What is the specific part of the page where I can send it correctly?
can you tell me or pass the link?
I AM SORRY FOR THAT, i know that this should be simple but i did not get it... ">___________________>

it's a bit hard for me to direct, as the moderator's front page looks quite different from a member's xD But I'll do my best!
The "Join" button is usually in one of the circled areas:…
When you click on it, a small box will pop up with a comment section. That's were you'll put the join format, the same one you see under the counter on the front page.
Let me know if you're having any more trouble with it!
Erichan8DD Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

This group looks like it's going to be awesome! :D 

Question though, say your character is a pureblood or perhaps a born American who has lived in England most their lives (hypothetical) then could you do the height and weight system in feet and pounds? The wizarding world never changed to the metric system so wands are all in inches, so if your a pureblood wouldn't you measure yourself in feet and pounds? Just curious as to what the answer will be :)

Can't wait for this group to get underway!
LightningEffect Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
You are free to put the weight in feet and pounds as well. There is nothing against that.
But we would like it to also be in cm and kg. 
It's like that mainly because of most of the mods being in europe, so they prefer those units.
TwilightsInferno Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Ah okay, I understand. Thank you for answering :)

hmmm how do we gauge/know the wand's flexibility? 'cause I was looking at hp wikia and they only listed the attributes and didn't explain how flexibility is measured.. :icongtthplz: like why would they use 'combustible' , 'springy', 'whippy' , 'brittle' and etc to describe--
KDeto Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2013  Hobbyist

"Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair - although, again, this factor ought not to be considered separately from the wand wood, core and length, nor of the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will combine to make the wand in question unique."
Further information can be found in our wand info under the"Character Creation" journal, here->…
Hope that answers your question!
yaocchi Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes i saw that part of the doc but i'm just curious as to why they described it that way instead of using a range of 1-10 with 10 being the most unyielding-- worked out something with my friends tho--!! Thank you for the reply! ; u ;

Oh! I see. Sorry for misunderstanding lskjfd
