    Default Hogwarts RP starring the original founders...


    J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series is undeniably one of the most famous fantasy book/movie series of all time, and to this day it remains a very popular setting in many RP’s. I’ve seen (and occasionally created in the past) RP’s set during and/or after Harry’s time at Hogwarts, as well as prequels featuring Lily, James, etc. back when they were students, among various others...

    ...but why don’t we ever get any RP’s featuring Hogwarts’ original founders?

    The Harry Potter universe provides some degree of insight into the lives and personalities of Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin, but many details and possible exploits have been left up to the imagination and would certainly be worth exploring in an RP. How/when/where did the four founders first meet? What was their wizarding education like? What kind of adventures did they have prior to founding Hogwarts? The list goes on and on...

    Post if you’re interested! And even if you’re not, feel free to post anyway; the bumps are always nice!

    Excellent, and welcome to you both!

    Got any particular character(s) in mind, or any specific plot ideas that you would like to include? As I said, there are so many possibilities that TBH I’m not yet sure where to begin. I also might try my hand at playing Helga Hufflepuff, though I’ll leave the position open for now in case anyone else would like to play as her.
    Thanks for the set, Kicks!

    I don’t really know much about the founders, so I’m not sure who I’d play.

    I could play Godric Gryffindor if no one else wants him

    Otherwise I’ll take anyone, no real preference

    I'd like to join in. ^^

    Preferably as Slytherin but I'm willing to play someone else if needed.

    That’s three founders with prospective players, and only one more (Ravenclaw) to go!

    While we wait, does anyone have any specific story ideas in mind for this RP? There are so many possibilities that TBH I don’t even know where to begin.

    Would we just be playing the Founders or would there be space for regular students/wizards?


    Thank you to Alice for making my sig and avi <3
