    Looking for an established, active, organized, enthralling, and tight-knit Harry Potter RPG community? Try Absit Omen!

    We've got some majorly exciting plots going on with lots of ways to include anyone who wants to move and shake. The Ministry is trying to tackle a Dementor plague with an interdepartmental initiative with an absurd acronym (I.D.R.E.A.D.). Someone's also blown up the Leaky Cauldron and it's becoming a distinct possibility that the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes might be causing rather than cleaning up...

    We've also got an underground clinic for unregistered werewolves, tainted potions ingredients on the market, and office holiday parties!

    Come see. :)

    We are coming up on our 12th year! One thing our community wants to be clear about is that while we can't completely extricate HP from its author we can take control of how we transform the canon and write our plots and characters.

    Absit Omen is explicitly welcoming of transgender characters and writers. We welcome writers of diverse backgrounds, cultures, religions, and orientations to join and to create plots and characters that reflect their perspectives.

    Plots going on right now include Ministry of Magic stuff, a werewolf rights movement at Hogwarts, and, just for fun, an experimental magical pirates AU.

    We'd love to meet you and your character.

    To clear the cobwebs we are jumping forward to the Fall of 2012. This is a perfect time to bring your character. We're wrapping up old plots, coming up with new plots, and you'll be just in time to start at Hogwarts (if that's your thing).

    Our diversity and inclusion statement:
    Though we write in a setting originally created by J.K. Rowling, we do not condone the author's transphobia and intolerance. Absit Omen is a safe space for liberal ideas. We encourage writers of diverse backgrounds, cultures, religions, gender identities, gender expressions, disabilities, and orientations to join and to create plots and characters that reflect their perspectives. Our interpretation of HP canon reflects these values.

    What's going on lately?

    School is in session and oh, the poor 'Nothingpuffs'! A unsorted Sorting Hat refused to sort, so Hogwarts staff are scrambling for a solution. At Hogwarts, active clubs include Dueling Club and a werewolf allies group.

    In the broader Wizarding World, there's legislation on the table to legalize consensual vampire bites, and there's been a Ministry raid on a werewolf night club.

    Your characters and ideas here! Absit Omen plots are created by the community.

    Also, note, our RPG Rating has changed from 212 to 222. We respect personal preferences for content and routinely tag content with sensitive subjects.

    Big things coming to AO - in about a month, we're advancing the time-line five years. This gives established characters a fresh start, opens the door for new characters to jump in more easily, allows us more control over HP canon, and brings our setting into the (more) modern day.

    Also in the past year we've changed our rating to 333 and made the minimum age for writers 18. A community policy is in place to make sure sensitive topics are tagged and personal boundaries and preferences are respected.

    We did the time skip and it feels super refreshing. Looking forward to a new international intrigue plot with spies in the USA, and continuing all the werewolf drama.
