Yes! Hogwarts still exists and all characters went to Hogwarts as normal, even the royal family.
Can I change my character's rank? Royalty and High Nobility are locked in place, but any other character can be moved around if you would like. Nobility is based on wealth and acknowledgement by the crown, so anyone could technically become nobility and have their noble status removed. A character in the royal family or high nobility can be disowned (see: Sirius Black), however it is not common practice except for the most egregious offenses (see: Andromeda Tonks).
Did the wars happen? Tom Riddle never became Voldemort, so no. That means that all characters killed (and driven crazy) in the first and second war are alive and well. Sky is the limit in picking up characters.
Did the Tri-Wizard Tournament happen? Yes, the Tri-Wizard Tournament occurs every ten years and that includes in 1994 when Cedric Diggory was the Hogwarts champion and won the tournament overall. The winner from 2004 came from Durmstrang, so feel free to have your character be salty about it.
Is the Ministry still around? No. Every form of government is run by the royal and high noble families. There is a centralized building where all servants to the crown work. If it doesn't fall under the four main branches of government (law enforcement, treasury, research & development, and courts) it is a private enterprise.
Does that mean that Quidditch is privately owned? Yes it is! Consider the Quidditch more like our own NBA or MLB, where there is oversight and people in charge, but it isn't the government.
How long have the Blacks been in power? See the history page for the timeline and history of the Black's reign.
Who are the rebels? ***ANSWER IS IN DEVELOPMENT***
Is there royalty in other countries? Every other country has their own thing going on, just like the way the world works now. There may be monarchies, but for the most part an absolute monarchy has fallen by the wayside. If you want to play a foreign character, their system of government is probably very different than England's.
How are Muggles and Muggleborns treated? There is some superstition among traditionalists that marrying Muggles or Muggleborns increases bad luck and the likelihood of Squibs. Therefore, it is frowned upon within the royalty and high nobility to marry anyone with a direct line to Muggle blood. There are laws against royalty marrying Muggles or Muggleborns, but as for the High Nobility it is simply a scandal.
Squibs born into the royal family are cast out. King Arcturus went against precedent by allowing the magical children of Marius Black back into the family.
Can I create an OC? Yes, but there are some rules. There can be any number of OC muggleborns added into the game. If you wish to play a sibling or child of an unplayed canon character, please ask us first.
