Just for fun, I thought I’d add some pictures that Sho and I did for Hogwarts: Your Story.
We created some Wand Dueling poses upon hearing about the opening of H:YS. And we had some fun doing the pics on one of the quiet preview nights prior to the fair opening.
I couldn’t decide on Gryffindor or Ravenclaw, so I tossed a coin. Just kidding, I wanted to do Gryffindor and decided it’d be more interesting choosing a character that would force me to think about my roleplay.
No information given on my character here. I have a very short blurb in my picks. But even that won’t tell you much, as I much prefer for people to find out about my character ICly.
I have to say, I’m extremely excited about H:YS opening up. Check out their current website here: Hogwarts: Your Story. Sho and I have both looked for Harry Potter RP sims, but couldn’t find one that would fit. Well…actually, I can’t speak for him, but at least for myself, that I couldn’t find one that fit what I like in a RP sim.
With all the talk going on in-world within the H:YS group and the OOC Group chat, I’m itching to get started RPing. It’s been well over a year since I’ve RP’d and it’s quite a different feel. Going from an “adult/mature” RP sim to a “PG” sim, and an open ended verse to one based off a well known and well loved book and movie series. From talking with the H:YS staff, they sound like they’ve got some awesome plot developments in store for us.
It’s gaining a lot of popularity, but after a month or two (or three), there will be a better idea of who will stick it out regularly. I encourage everyone to try it out if you’re a huge HP fan. No RP experience is needed. They’ll be holding classes for people who want to learn. There’s a plethora of information on the web already about RPing (although RPing in-world is different from forum RPing if you’re familiar with that. Though the transition won’t be hard). It’s funny finding different characters. And by characters, I mean personalities. I made a statement rather straight forwardly and was accused of trolling. Oh god, if only they knew what I am capable of when I’m trolling :D
Either way, if you’re remotely interested…check it out. You got nothing to lose. There are more good people than asshats.
I look forward to meeting some of you there!
…And this concludes my non-fashion blog post thingy.
See what I deal with? He likes to shoot at me.
