It’s 2014, and the brightest teen witches and wizards in America are gathered in the wilderness of northern Utah, where they spend their mornings learning magic and inventing new spells, and their afternoons mountain-climbing, kayaking and riding winged horses. After last June’s harrowing encounters with the powerful magical entities that guard these woods, most are hoping for a quiet year...

But MACUSA agents have set up camp nearby, claiming to only be here for the students’ safety, and the ghosts of children, once rarely glimpsed, keep popping up as the living try to go about their days. “Be careful,” one of them warns. “Be brave.”

Welcome to Gooseberry High, a slice-of-life American wizarding school game with atmospheric horror elements. Combining Hogwarts (houses, magic and Quidditch), high school drama (nerds, jocks, cheerleaders and choosing where you’ll sit in the cafeteria), camp (mosquitoes, roasting s’mores and the great outdoors), and the creepiness of being stuck in the middle of nowhere.

After the fall of Voldemort, the wizarding world experienced a period of unprecedented peace and prosperity. Life improved--or went back to normal--for most. Minister Shacklebolt left office nearly 20 years later with an incredibly high approval rating, and was replaced by war hero Hermione Granger-Weasley in 2017. However, when a global recession slowed the muggle economies of the world, the wizarding world was not spared its effects, and Minister Weasley lost the 2024 election to conservative Terence Higgs.

By 2035, many wizards are out of work, shops have closed, money is tight, and the people are looking for someone to blame. A dark figure is on the rise, claiming to be by the people, for the people. But will the hero they get really be the one they need?

Resurgence is a dark, next-gen Harry Potter game hosted on Insanejournal.

WANTED: Scorpius Malfoy, Rose & Hugo Weasley, Aurors, Ministry officials, journalists, Healers, out of work/disgruntled wizards

Game opens February 1!

The Year Above is a long-term game which follows one group of Hogwarts students through their school career and beyond. We begin in 1990 with our young people starting Hogwarts and the first year (the year before Harry Potter attends Hogwarts) will be mainly a social game, with events becoming darker and more complicated in later years as we follow the timeline of the books. How will they react to Harry Potter starting Hogwarts? Muggle-borns being petrified? A crazed killer being on the loose from Azkaban? The game emphasis is on character development and will provide the opportunity for a truly representative experience of the rise and fall of friendships, the highs and lows of growing up, and how 'ordinary' people are affected by war.

Most wanted: Cho Chang, Marietta Edgecombe, Analisa Montgomery, Slytherins, purebloods

Plot | Rules & Rating | Face Claim | Advertise

What we offer:
*Welcome threads for each new account – You should never doubt that we want you around.

*Guest-friendly shoutbox and chatroom to talk plot before making commitments – None of us like joining a site only to find that it isn’t a good fit for us, so we don’t mind talking first and letting you decide.

*No word count – All we ask is that you post enough to give your fellow poster something to respond to, whether this is one sentence or one thousand words. We much prefer quality over quantity.

*Mobile-friendly Forum

*Informative application – By informative, we don’t mean difficult. There is no length requirement. We just want to learn about your character.

*Quick turnaround on approvals – An approval only requires one admin out of four to look over the profile.

*You choose your character’s house – This goes for current and past students, as long as there is an opening.

*Friendly community – If we weren’t, we wouldn’t be advertising.

*No OOC discrimination, but there could be plenty IC ;)

*Easy character placement – We have so many areas to play in that it would be hard to decide there was nowhere for your character.

*LBGT friendly – Your character’s sexuality is not a concern for anyone, and, for those transgendered characters, we’ll go with however they identify. The only male/female division is in the school dorms, and your character would generally be roomed with whatever gender they identify with, or, by request, have their own room. If you’re worried for personal reasons, don’t be. No one else has the right to tell you how to live.

*Brand new – You’ll have a chance to get in on the ground floor when almost everything is open.

What we do not offer:
*OOC Drama (if there is a disagreement between players, they take it off-site. Or they will, as it hasn’t happened yet.)

*Cliquey behavior – What is the point honestly?

*Canon characters – But we have descendants open for adoption.

*No character bans – The only way I see this changing is if one year of a house is full.
