Every ending is a new beginning...

"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." Harry spoke the words from his heart at the memorial service for the man he had once so hated. The words flowed easily from his lips, though he would later confess to Ginny his uncertainty whether he meant to convince the wizard world of what he had seen that terrible night when so many had fallen; or console himself for the infinite pain of a missed opportunity.

What if everything Harry and friends believed they knew suddenly began to unravel? What if the world they built proved to have shaky foundations and appeared to unravel before their very eyes? What if history began to repeat itself? What if they could do some things very differently? What if?

If you'd like to play your original character or canon in a solid and well-crafted Next Gen Potter role-play, here's your chance!

Also needed is a co-admin to help run the game and develop the story-wide arcs.

As this is a Next Generation game, players with minimal knowledge of the canon can easily work characters into the game.

Mare Cognitum will be filled with surprising twists and turns as Harry Potter and friends confront their pasts and learn that many long-held assumptions have evaporated while long accepted truths are proved false. It's not always easy to separate friend from foe when long accepted realities evaporate. The game will be relaunched, so now is a great time to join in! There is plenty of room for OCs and most canons are available, too. Characters most needed include Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger-Weasley, Rose Weasley, Albus Severus Potter, Ginny Weasley-Potter, Lily Luna Potter.

Mare Cognitum will be a very literate role-play and basic literacy is expected of all players, whether writing for canons or original characters. We seek to be a plot-driven game with solidly crafted characters. Mary Sues, Gary Stus and otherwise fantastical creature-characters (half mermaids/half vampires) are not accepted. All others will be welcomed with open arms.

Most major canons are available. Everyone is welcome.
