Welcome to The Darkest of Times, a mature, AU Post-Potter Roleplaying Board. Set nearly 25 years after the end of the Second Wizarding War, a new conflict descends on the Wizarding World.
The Witches and Wizards of Tomorrow, an organization seeking to merge Muggle technology with magic, have just attempted to launch the CloudChaser on 31 December 2022. The dirigible would be capable of mass Apparation across vast distances, but it would never reach its first destination.
The CloudChaser malfunctioned on its maiden voyage killing 935 of its 936 passengers. Among the dead are: the Minister for Magic, the Editor of the Daily Prophet, Harry Potter and roughly half the Hogwarts Student body. The only survivor: Aurae Dulane, Headmistress of Hogwarts School and head architect of the CloudChaser, who fled the scene of the chaos.
Now the Wizarding World seeks someone to blame, as the Emergency Minister for Magic tries to curb the violence that sweeps through the streets.
Meanwhile, a new army of Death Eaters is on the rise, ready to take advantage of the rising chaos. Simultaneously, stirred by unrest about them, an ancient cult of Witches and Wizards known as the Children of Epona, must decide how to move forward in this new age...
The struggle for power begins on New Year's Day. It's time for you to take your chances, and see where the chips fall in these dark times...
16-31 January 2023
January continues, cold and bitter. Hogwarts is only due to open on 1 February, but the many students who have lost their families remain within its walls. Those unable to take refuge at the school seek assistance from the Ministry, as charities struggle to find homes for those orphaned by the disaster.
With Headmaster Brenden Bonaventure's present absence after the death of Celia Sycamore, it falls to Morpheus Black to find staff replacements, and the Darkling's allies take a firm hold on the school.
A funeral for Sycamore takes place at the Château de Bonnefontaine, but things are going to take an unexpected turn when several uninvited guests arrive after the ceremony...

Welcome to the staff thread tracker. This is so that staff can keep track of what staff characters are in what threads.
Currently there are 5 staff characters. They are:
The first is Morpheus Black, the Defence against the Dark Arts professor. He is a blind parseltongue who has a chilly personality, an oversupply of snakes and a host of extracurricular activities.
The second is Cosette Isabelle Morgan, the horribly scarred and disowned daughter of the Morgan family. After a prank gone wrong, she has officially been rejected by her family and cast out to the winds. I wonder where she went to?
The third is Gregory Ames, the Head of the Department of Mysteries and the fiancé of Athena Morgan. A personal disaster area for most of his life, he finally seems to be holding a family unit together. Let’s hope this one lasts…
The fourth is Aurae Fay Dulane, Ex-Headmistress of Hogwarts School and the disgraced leader of the WAWOT movement. As the sole survivor of the largest single catastrophe in modern Wizarding history, she had much to answer for...
The fifth is called A Stranger. The is an NPC admin account used for characters that are needed in a thread, but do not necessarily require and application to be played.
Until you cover me with manic fame. You wanna know about it? But I'm a be fucking with you every time. Story broken, you're behind. And when you ask about it? You can rest assured I'll give you my best side. Seems we all have friends to find.

Here we come
to a turning of the season, witness to the arc towards the sun. A neighbor's blessed burden within reason becomes a burden borne of all and one. Let the yoke fall from our shoulders, don't carry it all. We are all our hands and holders, beneath this bold and brilliant sun
There a wreath of trillium and ivy, laid upon the body of a boy. Lazy will the loam come from its hiding, return this quiet searcher to the soil. So raise a glass to turnings of the season and watch it as it arcs towards the sun. You must bear your neighbor's burden within reason and your labors will be born when all is done

bright eyes behold
the sight through another glass of wine... The one eyed jester skips and turns as she makes her way through the crowd. The tavern's royalty try not to laugh aloud... The ease of laughter comes so fast when you're not in a jester's shoes. 'Cause when you've only Fools Gold, you've got nothing
The world's weight on her chest. When your mind begins to race
you've got no time to rest. The ease of anger comes so fast when you're not in a queen's shoes but when you've only Fools Gold, you've got nothing more to lose...

Flash of mauve, splash of puce, fool and king, ghoul and goose, green and black, queen and priest, trace of rouge, face of beast, eye of gold, thigh of blue, true is false, who is who? Curl of lip, swirl of gown, ace of hearts, face of clown. In the light, in the sound, but who can name
This is the NPC account. The characters played through this account have no applications etc, but if you wish to plot with one or require one that you have a plan for, please PM one of the staff.
Grinning yellows, spinning reds, take your fill, let the spectacle astound you. Burning glances, turning heads, stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you. Seething shadows breathing lies, you can fool any friend who ever knew you. Leering satyrs, peering eyes, run and hide, but a face will still pursue you.
