This is a roleplay guild built from to be the American magical school that was first introduced by J.K Rowling, it was made canon in the 4th Harry Potter book, The Goblet of Fire during the Quidditch Cup. Originally it has been assumed that it was an all girl witches school, but we have decided to change the canon to allow the school to be Co-ed, therefore we are accepting both witches AND wizards.

This school runs in conjunction with Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Role play Guild, this means that everything canon there is canon here and the stories are running at the same time.

The school is set Post the Second Wizarding War, Harry Potter has moved on and become and auror and the horrors that unfold in the American Wizarding communities has been 'solved'. For all appearances there are no threats to the international Wizarding world. To find out about the events, history, and traditions surrounding the school please go here.

Yet even with the threats supposedly neutralized and contained. There are rumors, whispers, and a growing force that could throws the security, peace, and traditions of Salem into a whole new light.

SWI is located in a heavily and creepy feeling wooded area outside of Salem, Mass; USA. The strangeness of the Dark Witches Forest is normally enough to keep most muggles out, but the school has added extra enchantments so that any muggle who enters is magically transported back out and left with the memory of a long hike through a misty forest.

"Olivia Elderwild pressed her palm to her forehead as if to block the progress of her growing headache. It was a great sign for the new year, that already they were behind schedule. The masses of new and old students milled around the circle, crushing the fresh grass and fresh leaves of the come fall. Oh yes, she thought, this was a perfect start to the new year."

The above example is a representation of our standard here. If you are still a little confused, feel free to explore the guild's forums to see how others have posted. If you use any other form of roleplay outside of semi literate (i.e Chatspeak, script format), you will not be accepted.
