Amortentia Dolorosa -- the temptation to love pain, in Wizarding Latin, and a rather apt description of Pureblood feelings in 1974. Of course, whether you take it to mean schadenfreude or masochism is up to you...
Voldemort's rise to power is well underway, fuelled by the vacancy left by the fall of Grindelwald in 1945 and the recent outbreaks of violence related to the tensions in Ireland. Many a Wizard believes that the only way to stop the senseless barbarity of the Muggle world is to assume power over it, and that the way to assume power is to demonstrate it. The Dark Lord, himself, has been heard to say that national pride is irrelevant -- that it is only Wizarding blood that matters.
Enter this vertigo, a young wizard, impressionable and horrified at the state of British affairs, and what it may come to mean for the Wizarding World. How will you choose to shape the future? Where do your loyalties lie, and how deep do they run?
This game is a forum-based RPG, intended as a window into the first Wizarding War, and as such, focuses on very dark themes. We are not accepting players under the age of 18, for this reason.
* The admins would also like to take a moment to remind you that "Wizarding Latin", to all appearances, is just another way to say "we only speak Latin in the vaguest possible way".
