Hello everyone. My name (For those of you who don't know) is Tiffany. I am one of three of the 'Admins'/ maintainers of this Community. I think I'd like to start by saying 'test, one, two, three.' Let's all be hopeful there wont be any problems to worry about just yet. By the way Welcome!
We're all glad to have you here. Feel free to ask as many questions as you need. Especially if your Kafuffled as to where everything is leading to. Basically this is a re- telling/ re- living of the Marauder's last years of school.
These are some facts, just to refresh yourself of what the 1970's were like. I found some of them interesting, maybe you will aswell.1970-

Just to sum all of that up, we are obviously set in teh 1970's time period. If that is a problem, I'm sorry but I cannot really help you there. This means that no one will be runnnig around with I-pod's because they didn't exist back then. The alternative obviously is the A-Trax or the Cassette tape, which as mentioned above was created and launched by Sony in 1979. Basically all I'm trying to do by all of this information is let you stay with the times. I know that I wan't around for the 70's. Being born in '88 myself. Therefore some of the things that I was reading about the 70's were a surprise to even me. If anyone would like any extra information, feel free to ask me. *Ways to contact my and other maintainers will be at the bottom.
As Sam mentioned on our profile page 'We make no money from this website, all writings that take place here are part of the fiction universe created by JK Rowling, copy write of (but not restricted to) Warner Brothers PLC. Please, for the love of Merlin, dont sue us poor little RPGers who only wish to enjoy such things.' So please keep that in mind. Everything on this site that is mentioned to be copywrited is our work, we would all appreciate if you'd either ask to use it. Or resist the urge.
The only other thing that I would like to mention is that the Marauder's are infact set in their sixth year here at Hogwarts and that things like that need to be taken into account when observing and creating relationships and such. Just keep in mind that they are only 16.
Thanks for listening, we hope this was helpful to you.
