Welcome to Inductus Revelare!
We're happy to have you. While we know this game can be confusing at first, we've compiled a handy document of all relevant information to help your application and induction (ahem, pardon the pun) to our community. This is even in entirely chronological order, so if you follow it step-by-step you'll be a pro in no time.

1. Create an account. This should be your name or user handle.

2. Immediately make another account, for your character/s. It should be registered as Firstname Lastname capitalized correctly. No middle names.

3. Pick a magical school for your character to have attended, or app a muggle I guess. You can give muggles patronuses! Jacob Kowalski's is a penguin, for reasons I feel aren't necessary to specify.

4. Head over and pick up our information template.

5. Create a new topic within the sorting ceremony with your character's Lastname, Firstname (comma included), paste the template you just discovered and fill it out.

6. The only required parts are the character's school, name, age, and wand. Everything else is optional, or you can even add more things.

7. Once an admin gets around to your information topic, you'll receive a reply from The Sorting Hat. Most importantly, we don't reject characters at Revelare. If there are any problems or canon errors with an app we'll just ask you to edit via PM.

8. You'll be PMed some additional cool information about your house, unless you're a muggle, in which case you snooze you lose.

9. Make sure to bookmark each thread you are active in. You can access your bookmarks at any time by clicking on your username on the top right-hand corner.

10. We only use OOC accounts to login and access the forum, you never have to login to your character account unless you're changing the avatar. Access the post switcher by clicking on the {I} on the top right of the post body.

11. When you're done poking around, make a thread here titled with your username. This is where other players will leave you .gifs, threads, plot information, greetings, or general shenanigans.

12. Finally, all avatars are a maximum of 250x400px in dimensions. You may use .gifs. The minimum avatar size is 10x10, in case you want to app a giant pixel.

Welcome to Inductus Revelare!
Rating
We permit scenes of a sexual and violent nature, and have no restrictions on swearing. The only topic we have a ban on is sexually explicit content involving characters who are underage. Such content will be removed. Members repeatedly violating this clause will be asked to leave. Additionally, we do not use trigger warnings on any part of the site.

Date and Time
The date is essentially a rolling date, so we use fluent time in this RP. If the date today is November 18th, 2017 then that is also the date on the board. This RP is set in 2018, modern-day post-war.

World Climate
The Dark Lord has been defeated, and a new era of peace has been ushered in. The current Minister of Magic is Hermione Jean Granger, and all is well. But deep within the bowels of the Department of Mysteries, where Unspeakables do their work, whispers are growing of a new threat. Not the threat of magic, but something far more dangerous: something none of our world can comprehend. The threat of muggles.

Hogwarts Climate
The current Headmistress for Hogwarts is Minerva McGonagall. After Severus Snape died, Kardat Blacksworth took over as Head of Slytherin and Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, while Horace Slughorn continued to teach Potions. Kardat has since moved on from both positions to act as Deputy Headmaster.

Activity Requirements
We don't have any activity requirements, but if you don't make a post for a couple of months, your characters will be retired. Before that happens we'll reach out to you to check. As long as you keep in some form of contact you're good, though. If you ghost us for a while, and you play a canon, they will become available once more. Feel free to come back, though!

Canons
You can app canons. Most of the major ones are still available. Please get in touch with Shayne, Betty or Username before apping a major canon, just to let us know who you are and what your plans are since our app is so incredibly lax, we can't really get a sense of the character from it, so we just like to wave on PM/DM.
