The Important Things
This area does just what it says on the tin, and houses some of the most important things you'll need to know on the site. Our rules and plot are here, and this will tend to be your first port of call with us here on Potterwatch Restored.
All information about characters, their celebrity play-bys, canon characters, and the all important aliases of those on site are found here! This section is one of the most important ports of call, whether you've been on site for a while and are trying to refresh your memory, or just starting out with us!
If you have a suggestion of how we can improve this forum, this is where you go to do so. Ideas for new boards are always welcome! If you're having a little bother with anything, or if you want to tell us how you think we could be doing something better, feel free to come along and tell us, we welcome guest input and queries here as well.
Gringotts Wizarding Bank
The most fantastic of inventions, the currency converter! This will tell you just how much your pounds are worth in Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts. We apologise for the way that the muggle site works with muggle currency, but the confused witch or wizard need never worry about those pesky sums with the converter on hand!
Gringotts Wizarding Bank is the only bank of the wizarding world, and is owned and operated by goblins. It was created by a goblin called Gringott, in the year 1474. The bank holds all vault information and current salary information for witches, wizards, house elves, goblins, and more.
Points of Intrigue
Once your app is out of the way and your character has come alive, go here to show extra points of information and interesting facts about them!
Not all threads will be planned out to have someone specific participate, so if you have a thread you've left open ended for someone totally out of the blue to jump on, post them here! Make it known where they are, and let the threading... begin!
Does your character need to send a letter to someone? Or perhaps they're having a note feud over breakfast in the Great Hall? Whatever your character needs to send a letter about, they can do so at their leisure right here.
"They were neither ghost nor truly flesh, he could see that. They resembled most closely the Riddle that had escaped from the diary so long ago, and he had been memory made nearly solid. Less substantial than living bodies, but much more than ghosts, they moved toward him, and on each face, there was the same loving smile." - The Resurrection Stone is here for any threads which have passed us by time wise, but remain important to characters. Memories can be bittersweet, but when used correctly, the Resurrection Stone can give us a brief glimpse at what could have been, or revive what once was. Not something for everyone, and to say that it's not for constant use is a given, but sometimes we all like to look back and see for but a moment.
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Located under the main castle, the Dungeons are colder than the rest of the school and sit partially under the lake. Home to the Slytherin Dormitories, Potions class and the Head of Slytherin's office. Main entrance is in the entrance hall beside the Great Hall.
A warmer part of the castle though still below the main level, this floor is where one will find the Hufflepuff Common room, The Kitchens and the Head of Hufflepuff's office. Normally smelling like food and filled with friendly faces, this is also where many and more of Hogwarts House Elves work.
The main level of the school where the Great Hall, Transfiguration class and the staff room (usually) is found. This floor tends to be the busiest outside of class periods and is where most of the courtyard's can be reached.
The first floor is where Students and Professor's alike will find the Library, as well as a Muggle Studies classroom and the Head of Gryffindor's office. Best to stay on the quieter side of things to avoid bringing the librarian out at you.
Looking to pay a visit to Moaning Myrtle? Or perhaps it's the Headmaster/Mistress that you seek? Both will be found on this level alongside Advanced Arithmancy Class and one of the DADA classrooms.
The only point of interest on this floor really is the amount of classroom's, though the Clock tower and it's courtyard is up here too. Not much else to see though there are plenty of places to run into people and create new friendships. That's what the school appreciates almost as much as the education of it's student's.
Going out on a limb (pardon the pun) and going to say you've managed to hurt yourself. Or someone else has done it for you. Or your immune system is failing at it's job and you've fallen ill. On this floor all will find the Hospital Wing to patch them up, but other than that and a few classroom's there isn't much to do on this floor.
Looking for a little pampering in the form of the Prefect's Bathroom? Coming from a long night of studying or duelling? You must be on the Fifth floor.
If you find yourself to be wearing a Head Boy or Girl badge on your robes, you may be up here on the sixth floor looking for your chambers away from the rest of the student body. Or you really like your classes... getting warmer to the mark yet?
The floor that is the home to most of the entrance's to the castle towers, as well as most of the school's classes. Gryffindor's and Ravenclaw's are the houses most often seen up here on the seventh floor due to where their common rooms are. There is also a room of interest up here if you can find it... though that depends on what you're looking for.
The grounds of Hogwarts is home to many a point of interest, even if you aren't out and looking for your classes. For instance... there's the Quidditch Pitch if you're interested.... oh of course you are, don't lie, who isn't?!
There's also that intriguing yet ominous forest to interest you... or the lake if you fancy a swim... or perhaps you're looking to pay your respects to Dumbledore. Whatever it is, you'll find much and more out here.
A semi-outdoor shopping area to the side of Diagon Alley, this market is not to be missed! One of the staples of visiting Magical London, you'd be mad not to pop in once in a while!
Welcome to Diagon Alley, Magical London's biggest and busiest High Street! It is thought to have predated much of London, and some of the shops and attractions have probably been here since the beginning, The Leaky Cauldron definitely has!
Located between Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley, this small row of shops sits across the entrances Carkitt Market as well, and contains the lovely Fountain of Fair Fortune along with some essential shops.
Welcome to Knockturn Alley, one of the only places in Britain where you'll find so much of the Dark Arts. If you're here, you can't be up to anything reputable so we'll just pretend we didn't see you.
Greetings, and welcome to Godric's Hollow - a beautiful and quaint village where muggles and magical folk live alongside one another in harmony. It was named after one of Hogwarts most esteemed founders, Godric Gryffindor, and is believed to be his birthplace. It is perhaps now more famous for being the final resting place of James and Lily Potter, as well as the place in which Voldemort was first defeated by their son, Harry.
Welcome to Hogsmeade, The only All-Magical Village in Britain! Hogwarts students have been coming here on scheduled weekends (and for some, the odd extra few visits) since 1714, and love it as much now as they did then. A truly picturesque village, Hogsmeade is generally one of the most welcoming places to visit and live.
Welcome to Magical London! Not to be confused with it's Muggle Counterpart, we assure you it's far more interesting this side of the fence.
A fair trek up that hill, eh? Welcome to Ottery St. Catchpole! Situated in the beautiful county of Devon, this small village is home to muggle and magical families alike. Whilst it is possibly most famous these days for being called home to the Weasley, Fawcett, Diggory, and Lovegood families, if you were to visit, we know you'd see it has charm all of its own.
