here is where you can claim your characters special abilities! there are a limited number of spots for each ability, so please check that the ability you want your character to have has an open spot. any canons with special abilities, (e.g. edward lupin as a metamorphmagus, or victoire weasley as a part-veela) automatically have a spot.
there is no code for this part, so just post your characters name and whatever ability you want them to have!
--- ANIMAGI ---
an animagus is a witch or wizard that can morph themselves into an animal at will. this talent can’t be inherited, it must be learned. the process in which you have to go through to become an animagus is a long and difficult one. your character must be at least fifteen to be an animagus. when choosing the animal, please keep in mind that being something like a fish or snail wouldn’t be particularly helpful.

--- LIGILIMENS ---
someone who practices legilimency is known as a legilimens. these people are capable of navigating through another persons mind to find what they want. it's a difficult skill to master, and not many have been known to. this skill is learned, not inherited. your character must be sixteen or older to possess this skill.

--- METAMORPHMAGI ---
a metamorphmagus is a witch or wizard that can change any aspect of their physical appearance at will. however, they are not capable of morphing into full animals as animagi are. metamorphmagi are relatively rare, and their powers are said to be inherited. however, it is possible to be born with this skill without anyone else in your family possessing it.

--- OCCLUMENS ---
occlumency is what wizards and witches use to protect themselves against the prying of legilimens. people who successfully practice occlumency can close their mind off, making it impossible for legilimens to access their memories and thoughts. this skill is learned, not inherited, and your character must be sixteen or older to possess it.

--- PART VEELA ---
veela's are a race of semi-human, semi-magical creatures that are very similar to the sirens in greek mythology. they are incredibly beautiful, but when angered become little harpys. a part-veela is someone who has veela blood in their family. although they don't make the transformation from beautiful to bird-like monster, they do have a very strong allure. they can tone it down or up, but just like anyone else, they can have difficulties controlling their allure. the less veela blood they possess, the less powerful their allure is. this is inherited, not magically gained.
parseltongues have the power to speak to snakes. this skill is inherited, although it is possible for non-parseltongues to imitate the sounds parseltongues make. this is a very rare skill, so please keep that in mind before giving it to your character.

--- SEERS ---
there are only a handful of real seers in the wizarding world! seers are able to receive prophecies, make predictions, read tea leaves, and see images in crystal balls. although some of these skills are taught in divination class, only true seers can receive prophecies.

--- WEREWOLVES ---
werewolves are witches or wizards that, upon the complete rising of the full moon, transform into fearful beasts. over the years, wolfsbane potion was created that allows the witches and wizards to remain in control during the transformation. if werewolves reproduce, there is a chance the the child will inherit the disease, however it is more likely that they will be contaminated by their mother or father when older.
vampires are part-human, part-magical creatures that are known in muggle fairy tales to bite the necks of their victims and suck their blood. they are sensitive to the light, (sunscreen is almost always required), and need a daily helping of blood to survive.
Welcome to Broomsticks & Fire! Feel free to have a look around and ask the staff if you have any questions.
THIS SITE IS CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF BEING REBOOTED WITH A NEW PLOT.
When the plot and site is finished all current members will be emailed/PMed about the site changes and will
have the option of staying or leaving.
Welcome to Broomsticks & Fire! We are a post-potter rpg set in the year 2023.
Things have been pretty peaceful in the wizarding world.
That is, it was peaceful until an attack killed five aurors, one of them being Ronald Weasley,
beloved father, husband, and one third of the trio that had destroyed Lord Voldemort. Sure an auror's
job is dangerous, but to have five killed in one attack is almost unheard of anymore. It has several people
wondering if the Death Eaters are again at large. The Order of the Phoenix has been reactivated and is now being
headed by none other than Harry Potter himself, giving hope that their world can soon return to peace again.
Snow often covers the Hogwarts campus these days. Winter has begun and there is a sharp chill in the air. Better bundle up if you expect
to be going anywhere.

Happy Holidays! As a special treat we have revamped the site. If you notice anything off, let us know. Our new template is best viewed in IE and
We have re-opened the site! Hurrah! As you may have noticed, we have also added a new skin as well. "Love Struck - Second Edit" is the name of
our newest skin. We have kept the layout because it works well for the site. If you want to go back to the original skin, it should be labeled
as "Love Struck." Just a little note, the cbox may look a little out of place on that skin now as we have changed the colors to fit the new skin.
Also, if you haven't noticed. Our IC Cbox has been upgrated, so it now autorefreshes. Keep in mind that the IC is not a subsitute for threading
but a place to play in real time with your characters. Not everything (or anything) that happens in the cbox has to be part of the site plot.
