The Rules

Before submitting your application, please read through the Rules. There are a lot of rules but these are to try and inform everyone of things upfront. The main idea of the game is to have fun.

1. You must post at least once times in every seven day period unless you have a special arrangement with the mods. This rule not only applies to you the player in general but for each character that you play as well.

2. If you are going to be going away or know that you will be unable to post for an extended period of time, you MUST let the mods know.

3. If an emergency arises and you are unable to post, please get in touch with the mods as soon as possible. Excessive use of the emergency excuse may result in a probation period.

4. If you let the mods know that you will not be posting, you have three months to get in touch with the mods. Failure to do so may result in removal from the game or your being placed on probation.

5. If you are going away for an extended period of time, please know that your character(s) may be played slightly to keep the story moving. No major changes to your character, their history or their lives may occur during this period without your expressive permission. If you prefer, you may appoint someone from the group to play this character for you but you also understand that if this person leaves the group, your player will become a NPC until you are back.

6. You may NOT flame other members. Should another member complain that you are flaming them and/or it is seen that you are flaming another member, you will be warned. Failure to heed the warning will result in your permanent removal from the game. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.

7. You may NOT spam other members or the journals. Please note that you must follow the rules of each journal. Failure to do so will result in you receiving a warning. Multiple warnings will result in your removal. Should another member complain that you are spaming them, you will be warned to stop. Ignoring this warning will result in your removal of the game.

8. There is NO killing or seriously injuring of other characters in the game without the written permission of the mods AND the characters player. If you wish to leave the game please do not kill your character. Let the mods know so that we can re-cast your character. *NOTE* If your character is an original character and you do not wish to allow anyone else to play this character, you may contact a mod and request that your character is either killed off or leaves Hogwarts. *NOTE*

9. Please try and limit the one line responses. Posts should be on average more than 5 lines.

10. You must be at least 17 years of age or older to join this RP. This is because there will be adult content in this game. Note that sexual relationships may occur but are not the focus of this game. ALL adult content myst be behind an lj cut with warnings for those who do not wish to read and must occur in private journals.

11. Spelling and grammar are a must. It does not have to be perfect but please no net speak, use proper sentence structure and capitalization. We are not the spelling or grammar police but it does need to be readable.

12. Slash is permitted but you may not force other members into a slash type relationship. The same goes for straight relationships. Every character can NOT be involved in a gay/lesbian relationship - it would not be realistic.

13. You may not play God - we will not tolerate any God playing with the storyline or others characters.

14. Your character may not be a God-like character nor may they be a child of Snape, Voldemort or any other canon character unless already discussed in the books.

15. Limit of characters - you may play up to three characters. If you are playing a main character of the game you may not play another main character in the game. Voldemort is in this game but will be played by the Mods.

16. Original characters are permitted and encouraged but please make them realistic.

17. Dead characters are welcome to apply but unless a good reason is given for their return from the dead, understand that they may be denied. *NOTE* Harry's parents may NOT come back from the dead. Characters like Professor Quirrell or Sirius Black - well, it is possible that they come back. *NOTE*

18. If your application is denied, you will be given the chance to either fix the application or apply again. A reason will be given as to why you were denied. *NOTE* The only time you will not be permitted to re-submit an application is if you are under 17 years of age; or you have been banned from the game for breaking one of the rules. *NOTE*

19. Do not submit a character application expecting to be Snape's girlfriend or anyone elses girlfriend/boyfriend. ALL relationships must not only be approved by the mods but also by the players playing the characters.

20. Storylines and time jumps will be set by the mods. When creating a post in the game journal for others to RP to, please include the day, time and place. Please watch the times between morning, middle of the day, night, etc. It would not make sense for something to be happening in the morning while something else is occuring at night at the same time. If you have an idea to enhance the story line, please get in touch with the mods.

21. Though the main setting for this game will be at Hogwarts, characters can exist anywhere in the world.

22. All posts in the game journal MUST be 'Friends Only' posts. This is to keep people from bashing/flaming/ruining the game.

Snapebits is an adults only Harry Potter Role Playing Game played out on livejournal. All roleplaying will take place in the main game journal; snapebits_rpg; while all ooc conversations will take place in the ooc journal; snapebits_occ. All game play in the roleplaying journal will be in third person (like most novels) and will occur in threads (like a play by e-mail game; if you need to see an example, please let me know and I can invite you to a private Harry Potter RPG on Yahoo! Groups). Character journals are where the characters post their thoughts and feelings, homework assignments (should the teachers give any), any owl messages or notes back and forth to other characters. In ALL the journals please remember to not use net speak. These journals and such are not on computers in the game but are enchanted journals. Character journals may be written in either first or third person; and can also contain private RP's between characters.

In order to participate in this game you must have a character journal for each character that you play (or one journal devoted ONLY to your characters of this game and than you must sign your posts or use icons so we know who you are posting as). Should you choose to join and are accepted, an invite will be sent to your character journal. *NOTE* You may apply and be accepted before creating your character journal but please provide us with a character journal as soon as possible after acceptence. Chat programs are not needed for this game.

The game is set five years after Harry and those of his year graduated. The focus of this game is not on Harry; though he is a character that can be played; but on Severus Snape and other adults in the Potter fandom. The game will focus on different areas of the world; IE Hogwarts while at the same time Hogsmeade or wherever else in the world an event is occuring. Your character does NOT have to be at Hogwarts at all but can live in London or Philadelphia and play out their part there. This game goes A.U. after book four. The events that occured in book five, six or seven will not be canon in this game.

Voldemort returned to his power in the same manner as in book four. Instead of the war occuring; Voldemort has decided to bide his time, build his strength and forces before attacking those that are against him. As the years go on, Voldemort finds more and more supporters, but so does the Order. As one year turns into seven, Voldemort knows he must find a way to gain the power that he so desires and so he sets out to find the Dark Scrolls. These ledgendary scrolls date back to the early 1600's. The five scrolls are said to hold great powers and will bring these powers to the person who has possesion of all five. Alone the scrolls are useless, together in the wrong hands could mean the end of Good. Hidden by the five Wizards that created them, the Seeker of the scrolls must solve riddles and clues to find the location of these scrolls; hidden long ago in all corners of the world. As Voldemort and his followers search, so does the members of the Order. Who will find them first? Will good triumph over evil or has evil's day come to rule the world? It's anyone's game.

Snapebits RPG was created in 2001 as a Harry Potter PBEM group on Yahoo Groups. Closing in mid-2002, the game underwent major changes and re-writes before reemerging in fall of 2004 briefly. It has undergone some more changes and is reemerging here on livejournal.
