The league was established in 1674. Due to the need to maintain anti-Muggle security, the professional League was formed of the thirteen best teams at the time, and all others were asked to disband. Amateur teams are still permitted, once they meet departmental requirements. Each year, the teams compete for the League Cup. The teams have also competed for the Josef Wronski Award for Excellent Pitch Skills and individual players for the Dangerous Dai Llewellyn Commemorative Medal. Teams from the league also participate in the European Cup. The league falls under the authority of the Department of Magical Games and Sports.

It’s been one year since the second Battle of Hogwarts that pitted the students of the ancient school against the forces of the dark Obscura. With help from the Order of the Phoenix, the side of good managed to hold off the attack and defend the school, though the damage done to the castle and those who fought for it still linger. Most of the casualties have been memorialized in a constructed statue in the middle of the front quad—four figures wearing the crests from each of the houses with wands raised, the names of those lost engraved on the base—a reminder of what is needed in order to overcome the still lingering conflict that haunts the magical community and the amount of sacrifice it takes.
Those suspected of alliances with the Obscura have been brought into custody, but some escaped in a frantic mass exit once the battle had subsided. Of those detained none have proved to be the true mastermind behind the shadow organization, and while there are whispers of ancient family names responsible, there is no proof. For all the world knows, they are just puppets in an even greater plan of evil and darkness.
Nevertheless, the students who have graduated and still carry the lessons learned from their years spent at Hogwarts are the growing hope for true peace within the community. Aurors, Ministry members, Gringots workers, Professional quidditch players— these are just a few of the professions that Hogwarts students have filled, not to mention the branches that reach into the muggle community. Ready to step out into the real world to try and make their mark, will they succeed? Will they be consumed by their work to the point of naivety? Or will they keep an eye on the ever-growing murmurs from the darkness? It seems that the dangers within the castle were just child’s play compared to the threats that have presented themselves in the real world. In the end, there’s one question that you must ask yourself:
Hey all! So as of Friday we are officially on our hiatus for the re-vamp. This means that all students have graduated and/or been released for the summer. As for our return date, we’ve narrowed it down to August, but as we get closer to the month we’ll set a date. For now you can keep doing what you’re doing, whether that be roleplaying out summer or taking a short leave from wandsandmagic while we work on the switch.
As for those who wish to return I just need a small something from you! If you could comment on this post the taken FCs you are going to play (current ones you have control of or one new character) that would be great so I can put those faces aside and not plan on writing a bio with the face. Also, if you want to take a look at the new application that is in the ooc and start to try and fill it out a bit, that’d be awesome as well!
As always, you guys rock and I hope to see you guys in August! If not some activity here and there on the dash!
We will, no worries! As of right now we’re probably gearing towards a June re-vamp and then a July re-opening.
As of right now we’re in a sort of semi-hiatus until the remaining characters graduate in May. And then we’re going to be undergoing a huge revamp. If you’re interested in being a part of the roleplay then you’re more than welcome to come off anon and we can discuss creating a character for the post-revamp!
I was actually thinking about it, yes! I haven’t created an application form yet, but I wouldn’t mind having at least one, if not two more admins for this place. I’ll probably start to work more on that once we get closer to graduation.
We are not! We’re just in the regular run of the semester at the moment!
We wouldn’t mind having Esmeralda around!
As for right now we don’t have any planned before the re-vamp in May. But if someone wants a specific character or has an idea they’re more than welcome to create and OC.
We’re in a bit of a transition period, I’d say. As it turns out most, if not all, of the characters that are taken right now will be graduating at the end of May, so we’re going to do a re-vamp then and shift towards life after Hogwarts with a tie in to the Obscura/Order. We’re still very much accepting applications, though! And any questions anyone has about our plans and/or the direction in which we’re going to head in the future.
