International Academy of Magic Roleplay Wiki is a wizarding world-themed roleplay wiki based on the Harry Potter universe. The school (IAM) is considered Canadian-American, unplottably located just over the USA border from North Dakota along the Red River Valley. Nearby towns include Lavoie, a Canadian muggle and wizarding town, as well as Ravenwood, an American wizarding village.


International Academy of Magic


Students
Students accepted into IAM can be from any ethnic background, and live or have been born in any country. IAM accepts transfer students and foreign exchange students. It offers two programmes - the Fundamental Class and the Master Class, for different students in accordance to their ages.

The Fundamental Class consists of students from 1st year (aged 10 to 12) to 7th year, while the Master Class consists of students from 8th year to 12th year (aged 21 to 23). Upon the completion of the Fundamental Class Programme (1st Year to 7th Year), students could decide whether or not to continue their education as Master Class students (8th Year to 12th Year) at IAM.

The Master Class students are separated from the younger students, residing at a different part of the school property. They may live on or off school grounds, but they are no longer permitted to enter the underclass Student Rooms, whereas the underclass students aren't allowed to enter the Master Class Quarters.

Houses
Every IAM student is sorted to one of the five houses, which are Aethelberg, Gomes, Charbonneau, Ihejerika and Maximinus. These five houses are named after the founders of this academy. Ihejerika is for females only and Maximinus is for males only, whereas the other three are unisex. The performances of house members determine the earning or losing of house points, and hence the winning house of the House Cup.

The Neighborhoods


Ravenwood
Ravenwood is a small American wizarding village not far from the IAM campus. The students of IAM (third year or above) can visit the town during after school hours or during school breaks. Many Ravenwood residents dwell at Ravenwood Village Apartments.

Lavoie
Lavoie is a Canadian muggle and wizarding town not far from the IAM campus. The students of IAM (third year or above) can visit the town during after school hours or during school breaks. Many Lavoie residents dwell at Lavoie Townhomes.

The Ministries


There're two Ministries in operation on this wiki - the American Ministry and the Canadian Ministry.

Characters


This guide basically covers up what you need to know when filling out the character creating form. The followings are some of the highlighted details.

Age

  • Your character could be either a student or an adult.
  • The age of a student ranges from 10 to 23 years old.
    • A first year is 10-12 years old
    • A twelfth year is 21-23 years old

Appearance

  • It is preferable to describe your character's appearance with the aid of a model. Check this list to see whether the model you have in mind is available for use (not used by other users). If you don't know where to find a model, the list also provides a number of suggestions for you to choose from.

Species
You are allowed to create human, werewolf, metamorphmagus, giant, veela, goblin, vampire or fae characters. They could be full-beings, half-beings or part-beings. However, every student character created has to be a wizard/witch. In other words, he or she has to be either a full human wizard/witch or a half human wizard/witch. You could refer to this guide for detailed information.

  • Metamorphmagus is a human.
  • Werewolf is a human/beast.
  • The following table shows the possible combinations of species for your character:

Sorting


To create a character, you MUST submit a character face claim at here. Please try to meet all the guidelines, or, even better, outdo them. If you find your character ideas lack promise, put them in a sandbox until you can come up with something to make them better, or scrap them if you prefer.

Approval

  • It can take up to three working days (Monday-Friday) to process your Character face claim, although it will rarely take this long. Let a administration member know you have posted one if it takes more than a day, although please do not get impatient.
  • A message with your character's designated house will be put on your message wall. The houses are Ihejerika (girls only), Maximinus (boys only) and Charbonneau, Gomes and Aethelberg (unisex). There are respective dorms and halls for each house.

Character Page Creating


EVERY character must have a page, filled with as much information as it can. It does not need to be pretty, but we politely request that it is well organised and easy to read. You could take a look of these character pages as examples: Lucas Cimorelli, Sara Timms, Caja Czcibor, and Reagan Presley.

To create a character page of your own design, simply type in your character's name in the box below. (Example; Roch Benoit)


If you don't know how to start and you happen to like one of the pages above, type in your character's name in one of the boxes below which corresponds to the page that you like.

Filling Out the Records


After creating your character page, please fill out the following records for your character:

Character Word Bubbles


After your character has been approved and you've created your character page, you are going to need a Word Bubble to roleplay.

To create a Word Bubble for your character, type in Template:YOUR CHARACTER'S NAME in the box above. For instance, Template:Glori.
On the template page, cut and paste the code below to begin editing your Word Bubble.


{{Word Bubble IC
|image      = just the image name, no file: or brackets just image name and file type jpg, jpeg, png, or gif
|color      = top bg color
|color2     = bottom bg color
|textcolor  = top txt color
|textcolor2 = bottom txt color
|line       = middle line color
|fonttype   = font style
|charname   = * how you want their name to appear
|charpage   = * page with char info, (actual page/character name)
|house      = * House you belong to or affiliate with
|title      = * title, student, teacher, etc
|time       = {{{time}}}
|text       = {{{text}}}
}}

For instance, if you type in:

{{Word Bubble IC
|image      = Glori2.jpg
|color      = #677C66
|color2     = #A5859E
|textcolor  = #2b1827
|textcolor2 = #2b1827
|line       = #9D6F80
|fonttype   = Andalus
|charname   = Glori-Anne Marie Angélique Dompierre

|house      = 
|title      = Ihejerika Seventh Year Junior Master 
|time       = {{{time}}}
|text       = {{{Glori}}}
}}


It will become:
