What is cool and not cool from an OOC standpoint. You need to read this before you can apply, and we include a hidden keyword that you MUST put in your app so that we know you have read this page and know what is acceptable in Squarewarts.
This should cover most of your starting questions concerning the game. If you have any questions that remain unanswered, or specific things concerning your character, please feel free to email the mods at email@example.com. There is another required keyword hidden here that you need to put in for application in order for it to be accepted.
This is where you need to post in order to get special abilities, items or weaponry. It also has an outline for what is okay so far as violence and injuries and what we'd prefer you to get permission for.
You can use the forms on this page in your application, if you know what abilities, etc, you might like your character to have in advance. It also serves as an index of our current approved special abilities.
A work in progress, but the mods and players alike are working to build a complete picture of the world of Squarewarts! Players can make and edit pages for themselves, their characters and a bunch of other things. You can also use this as a resource to learn more. (The wiki is a strictly OOC tool, not an in-game resource.)
To request wiki access, please go HERE.
❧ Mod Contact
Feel free to talk to the mods! We are happy to answer your questions, help you figure stuff out for the game, or just chat about random things.
❧ Helper Moogle
As part of our mod team, we have two awesome helpers that make our Helper Moogle and Moomba team. This entry has an index of current Moogle entries, and they and our Moomba can both help you if you need community tags, a welcome moogle or wiki access.
❧ Suggestion Box
Things always come up that you might want to mention to the mods. If you have ideas for events, random day to day shenanigans, or even potential concerns that you would like to bring to the mods, please feel free to post here. Anon commenting is allowed and IP tracking is off.
This is where we post week change and any mod announcements. Basically the organisational side of Squarewarts. Only the mods, moomba and moogle post here.
In the game, everyone at Hogwarts (staff, students and ghosts alike) is provided a journal that they can use to communicate with one another. These journals are essentially a network, where one can keep personal thoughts as well as reading the entries of others. The journal comm is where these entries are posted. Written, sound and visual entries are all fine!
Any posts that involve interaction between characters that doesn't fall into the journal category. Want to have your character in the library and able to meet people, or maybe your professor has an appointment to speak to a coworker? This is the place! We allow action/quick logs and prose logging.
All out of character play announcements! This is where you can introduce yourself, let others know if you need to take a hiatus, or make a post to get ideas for character relations. Once a month the mods post a meme in this comm, either a getting to know you, character relations or praise/crit meme.
Where the silly stuff goes! Once every two weeks (alternating with week change) the moogle posts a meme, but players can post all fun stuff too! Fanfic, videos, art – anything fun and relating to Squarewarts can go here! Sometimes brainbleach is a good idea to keep on hand.
Our applications page. More information on how to app, weekly application deadlines, as well as the application forms. This is the place to post your application once they are complete.
Check here before you app to make sure a character is not reserved, or in order to place a reserve on a character that you would like to play.
❧ Extra Character Request
Currently the character limit stands at seven. However, if you go to this page you can find information on how to request an increase in your personal character limit.
Characters already in-game. Includes their House, age, year, teaching position or whether they are a ghost! Also pretty icons.
All characters are welcome, but here are some that people would especially like to see. If you are stuck for ideas on who to app, this might give you a place to start.
You MUST post here if you are going on hiatus, so that the mods have a record for when we do Activity Check. Posts to the OOC comm are good to let your fellow players know if you will be gone or when you get back, but we really need players to post to the official entry.
❧ Player Contact ✖ Locked
We keep this locked to players for their privacy, but once you are accepted to the game this is a handy-dandy way to find out how to get in touch with your fellow Squarewartians.
❧ Spells, Creatures and Artifacts
If you have an idea for how to adapt a creature, a spell you would like to create for characters to use or a random artifact to exist in the world (other than an item or weapon specific to your character) then post them here for the mods to approve.
Go here for information in wands and the various wand elements (woods and cores) available for characters in Squarewarts. It has guidelines for what wands need mod permission and what don't. If you have an idea for a potential wand core or wood, please go here.

If you are having problems with another player, but feel the situation requires mod intervention, you can find information on what to do here.
