WWXXXI: HARRY POTTER & THE YEAR 1995 - TANNER & ORDER WIN!!

There are worse ways to spend the time, but not many.

Postby wendy » Wed Jan 04, 2017 11:10 am

You do not need to know anything about Harry Potter to play.
Spoilers (at least from my end) will be limited to mentioning the names & occupations (via game roles) of characters that don't appear until book 3 or later. I will be posting a bunch of out of context gifs.

This will be a THREE SIDED GAME: Ministry vs. Order of the Phoenix vs. Death Eaters.

I invented a role and tweaked a bunch of others, so I do recommend reading the roles.

Rules, roles, mechanics, and items

Rules:

-The usuals: no screenshots, no sharing of mod communication, no playing against win condition, no chat transcripts, no anon emails
-Mason rule DOES NOT APPLY. However, PUBLIC DISCUSSION OF CERTAIN ITEMS IS FORBIDDEN.
-We will break for weekends (Friday evenings through Sunday afternoons). Posting during these times will not get you killed but it will make me think you have as little self-control as I do, and that's a bad thing.
-Backchanneling is permitted only during night cycles. Night cycles will take place between the hours of 4pm and 10pm EST. Every Sunday and Wednesday night is a Full Moon and will be longer.
-Please try to avoid the discussion of major plot spoilers

THE EVENTS OF THIS GAME ARE NOT CANON. YOU CAN TALK ABOUT OUTER SPACE. I WILL NOT BE TRIGGERED. YOU CANNOT TROLL ME. SOME OF THESE STATEMENTS ARE NOT TRUE.

Note
The Death Eaters are a bit OP but the homework and special items skew toward the Ministry & OotP so i'm gonna leave the DE as is. I added another Order member and made it so each Order member knows at least one other Order member.

The WCs are as follows:

Ministry: eliminate the Death Eaters and the Order

DE: eliminate the Order and achieve parity with the village

Order: eliminate the Death Eaters and achieve parity with the village


I have included a few fail-safes in case something huge happens early on that completely fucks a team, or in case the game turns out to be grossly unbalanced. These will most likely not be made public until after the game, and will only be used for those freak occurrences that basically end a game before it starts.

As the game progresses, if it becomes clear that your team has no chance at winning, it doesn't mean you have to stop playing! You can still impact the outcome of the game.

The setting is the Harry Potter universe in the fall of 1995 (Harry's fifth year), but knowing everything that entails isn't required. However, if you want to know the basic setup, it's as follows (minor plot spoilers):
-Voldemort is on the move and gathering followers. People are disappearing.
-The Order of the Phoenix is working to stop him.
-The Ministry of Magic is in denial and trying to discredit Dumbledore/the Order. Associating with Dumbledore could cost you your job (or your life, if the Death Eaters happen to notice).
-The Minister for Magic has placed his Senior Undersecretary, Dolores Umbridge, at Hogwarts to keep an eye on things, particularly Dumbledore.
-Hermione Granger starts a student resistance group called Dumbledore's Army
-Umbridge responds by putting together an Inquisitorial Squad made up of narc Slytherins

Wendy I have an important question.

if the Ministry won wouldn't it just be co-opted by the Death Eaters? Cornelius Fudge is the shookest motherfucker who ever lived. And there is no way fucking Rufus Scrimgeour, though an admirable (if stubborn and misguided) man, would be able to beat either the Order or the Death Eaters, as we CLEARLY SAW in the books.

Why are you abnegating Harry Potter lore?

I am not responsible for whether or not the Ministry falls after victory and, to be clear, the events of this game will not be considered canon.

Furthermore, alliances are encouraged even though only one faction can win. The challenge will be figuring out which of your two enemies is the more useful ally and deciding how and when to turn on them.
