kq roleplay

Attention witches and wizards of the magical community! The admins of Kings and Queens have some exciting news to announce.

As a roleplay, we will be having our first event starting on October 26th, where the Hogwarts students will get the chance to go on the first Hogsmeade weekend of the school year. However, there is a twist. Once the students are in the village, the Death Eaters will ambush the lot of them, keeping them hostage and sealing off all entrances to the school. What you decide to do from then is up to you. For example, you can have you character take shelter in one of the inns, or perhaps join in on the fight, or even attempt to make it back into the school by apparating to the very edge of the Forbidden Forest. Use this as a chance to show your character’s true colors, if you will, and do whatever you think is most canon!

Now, in order to make things interesting, we are going to be doing something a bit different. If you like this post, we will add your character’s name to a list and then randomly match them with another character, and you two will get to para what happens when the two of them wind up encountering each other during the mayhem. Whether it be a duel or an unlikely companionship, use this opportunity to explore existing and form new relationships—you never know what might come of it! That being said, your partners are not the only people you’re allowed to para and plot with. You may have as many paras or interactions as you wish to, with as many people as you’d like! Give the Prophet something (or many things) to write about!

This event will last from the 26th of October to the 2nd of November, though you may continue the paras as long as you wish to. 

If you have any suggestions or plot ideas, please, sent us a message, because we would love to hear them. And remember, like this post if you would like to be paired up with a partner for the event ahead!

THE QUIDDITCH SEASON HAS BEGUN AT HOGWARTS

Final Score ➝ 200 - 40
Player Listing ➝ 

Witches and wizards of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, we are proud to announce that the much awaited Quidditch season has kicked off with a bang! On the morning of January 18th, 1978, the Gryffindor and Ravenclaw teams met on the pitch, where the two captains, James Potter (Gryffindor) and Erik Waldgrave (Ravenclaw) shook hands in the spirit of friendly competition. As always, Gryffindor house wore their colors with pride, filling the stands with red and gold — there were even a few students in other houses that seemed to be clad in scarlet. Needless to say, they did not disappoint their fans. 

Within the first five minutes of the match, Captain James Potter managed to sneak the Quaffle past Ravenclaw Capatain Erik Waldgrave, scoring ten points for his team with the daring use of a Dionysus Dive. The Gryffindor team did not let up as the match continued, though Ravenclaw did not go down without a fight, successfully landing both a Porskoff Ploy and a Starfish and Stick. Gryffindor beater, Sirius Black, successfully confused the Ravenclaw team with the use of a Bludger Backbeat, while his teammate, Dorcas Meadowes, confused Ravenclaw beater Kaida Filipczyk with the use of a Transylvanian Tackle — though contact was not made. Towards the end of the match, with Gryffindor leading by ten, seeker Marlene McKinnon swept right past the opposing seeker to snatch the snitch, successfully winning the game for the Gryffindor team. Needless to say, the lions have reason to celebrate tonight! Congratulations to the Gryffindor Team, and stay tuned for information regarding the next Quidditch match. 

ATTENTION ALL SEVENTH YEAR STUDENTS

The school year is coming to an end, which means that yearly examinations are creeping upon our student body.

Attention witches and wizards of the Wizarding World! The admins of Kings and Queens have some exciting news to announce. 

  • Within the next week, expect to see new sideblogs to the roleplay, dedicated to both the Order of the Phoenix and the Death Eaters respectively. On these blogs, we will be posting missions and assignments that are meant to fuel the fire of the advancing war, some specific and some left up to the will of the players. These will involve self paras, chatzy paras and standard paras, involving both specific groupings as well as those left up to the players. 
  • There will be another event coming up in two weeks that will involve an attack, as well as a Quidditch match taking place this weekend. The sideblogs will come into play during the first mentioned, so be sure to follow them once we provide the links. 
  • We will also be releasing a series of character biographies over the next two weeks, both canon and not canon.
  • Activity is extremely important in the roleplay, and while we have a slew of incredibly active members, we will be taking the next few days to weed through the inactive and reopen their characters. 

Overall, there are quite a few tricks hidden up our sleeves that will come to light over the next month or two, so be sure to keep a close eye on the main for updates. If you have any suggestions or questions, be sure to send them in! 

Match 002 ➝ Slytherin vs. Hufflepuff
Final Score ➝ 190 - 110
Player Listing ➝ 

Welcome witches and wizards of Hogwarts, to the second Quidditch match of the season! On the morning of March 15th, 1978, the Slytherin and Hufflepuff teams met on the pitch, where the two captains, Alec Wilkes (Slytherin) and Felix Rowland (Hufflepuff) reluctantly shook hands. Although the house pride did not seem as prominent as it was during the first match of the season, Slytherin seemed to be sporting silver and green with pride, while Hufflepuff crowded their stands with banners and streamers to show support of their team.

The match was off to a slow start, the first ten minutes or so spent with numerous attempts at getting the quaffle through the hoop, only for the keepers of both teams to continuously stand in the way. However, once they got into the rhythm of things, Hufflepuff chaser Jason Everett managed to score his team their first points, finally weaseling his way around the Slytherin Keeper, Taurus Avery. From then on, the Hufflepuff team continued to put up a good fight, with Captain Felix Rowland knocking bludgers towards everyone who intended to score, and keeper Brie Lancaster knocking the quaffle away using many flashy tactics, such as the Double Eight Loop andStarfish and Stick. However, chaser Luc Trésor was the first to score for his team, finally moving to help catch up with Hufflepuff with the assist of his fellow chasers in a Hawkshead Attacking Formation. From that point on, the tides began to turn for the Slytherin team, with the beaters and keeper Taurus Avery upping their defensive game in order to keep Hufflepuff from scoring too many more goals. Vincent Mulciber employed the use of aTransylvanian Tackle in order to scare chaser Danny Forester, causing the latter to nearly fall off his broom and forfeit the quaffle to the Slytherin team. Soon enough, it came down to a race between the two seekers, Regulus Black of Slytherin and Lucy Forester of Hufflepuff, and just when the latter hand her fingers all but grazing the tip of the snitch, she was brought down with a nasty bludger from Evan Rosier, who had shot at her with the expert use of a Bludger Backbeat, which caused Regulus Black to inch in front of the fallen witch and snatch the snitch, winning the match for Slytherin. Although Hufflepuff put up a valiant fight, it seems more and more likely that we will be seeing an epic face off between Gryffindor and Slytherin come the Quidditch championship — though in the meantime, anything might happen. Congratulations to the Slytherin Team, and stay tuned for more information regarding the next Quidditch match.
