Description

A collective breath is held by the entire wizarding population of Britain while the world looks on in earnest. Is Voldemort as unstoppable as people think? Is there anyone that can end his campaign of terror? This is war waged between the Ministry, the Order of the Phoenix, and Voldemort's Death Eaters. With Dumbledore's death, some have turned to despair, some of felt solace in their own hate and fear, and some have turned to the Boy Who Lived. Yet life in war does continue. People fall in love and have families. Children go to school. Even in their fear, people persevere in their own way.

It has been an eventful summer to be sure. It has done precisely what Voldemort hoped- it has the everyday wizard questioning the competency of the Ministry and Scrimgeour. With Dumbledore's death, it seems Death Eater attacks are growing more brazen. But gains have been made.

- Alecto and Amycus Carrow were captured by Ministry personnel during a raid and sent to Azkaban only a week ago. Their trials before the Wizengamot are set to begin next week.

- A very public (show) trial for Antonin Dolohov has been big social news- his sentence of Death by Dementor's Kiss is expected to be carried out within the month for the murder of Igor Karkaroff, former Headmaster of Durmstrang. His sentence has sparked some outrage.

- Fenrir Greyback was briefly taken into custody by Alastor Moody's handpicked team when he attempted to kill Bill Weasley. He later escaped, managing to kill four Aurors in the process. He is believed to be wounded.

Yet despite such gains, dozens have been injured or killed and dozens more have disappeared- all suspected work of Voldemort and his Death Eaters. There has been no sign of the wanted traitor and known Death Eater, Severus Snape. Yet the last two weeks have been strangely silent. Harry Potter has disappeared as well and many fear for his welfare. Scrimgeour has taken advantage of the situation and proposed a number of Security Acts that severely curtail the rights of individuals- especially those with suspected Death Eater ties.

In mid-August, students received letters debunking rumors of Hogwarts' closure due to the war. Prefects and Head Boy duties were assigned in the same letter. The school will open on time, though students should expect several changes in routine.

Passing Through Twilight is a brand new HBP-Compliant game focusing on characters other than the famous Trio. We are looking for characters from all walks of life- Death Eaters, Ministry Workers, Order of the Phoenix Members, Students and Teachers. Many choice characters are available!
