ALTERNITY is a Harry Potter roleplaying game, set in an alternate universe where Lord Voldemort has the upper hand.
As a result of one tiny change back when it all started, Harry Potter has been raised as Harry Marvolo, the Dark Lord's adoptive son and heir apparent. He simultaneously loathes and is intrigued by the Mudbloods and Muggles that are interned in work camps throughout Great Britain. He knows nothing of the world beyond the United Kingdom's seemingly impenetrable wards. And he is about to start attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry... where he will encounter truths about his past, present, and future that he has never known before.
In a new initiative by the Voldemort-controlled Ministry of Magic, all members of the Wizarding World are given access to LiveJournal-like journals. The Death Eaters believe that these journals will allow them to spy on the public; the Order of the Phoenix, however, has discovered a way to lock their entries to other Order members, keeping everyone else out. Furthermore, Fred and George Weasley have created their own lock, inspired by the Marauders Map, allowing their friends to communicate secretly to each other through the journals.
ALTERNITY is a nocturne_alley style roleplaying game, meaning that we do not post chat logs - we allow only true journal entries and the occasional letter, photo manipulation, etc. We are playing in real time: that is, if it is September 1 in real life, it is also September 1 in the game. Time stamps on comments may or may not be accurate - we'll do our best, but we are all on different timezones, and therefore a time stamp may occasionally not reflect the reality of when the comment was posted "in-world."
Casting is currently open; you apply to be a part of the game, and then we decide which characters you'll play. To apply, check out our casting call.
