Mod post [Thursday, August 4th, 2005
@ 5:22pm

Hello all.

Im sure you've all heard alot about the future of this game, drifting amidst the waves of rumour...
Well, Im here to set the record straight, and sort the floaters from the truth.

Almost Grown was set up just over a year ago, on a day much like today, by a very bored, somewhat rp-ignorant me. I was shortly joined by our most fantabulous (and not at all ignorant) Co-Moderator- Kel, and an array of exciting, lovely players including Jessi and Kelly, who have stayed with us through the game's history.
The plan was to create a fun, friendly game which was canon based and didnt require blood samples to pass the application process (and also a place where I could play Ron!).

The game has seen some truly inspired plots, wonderful character development, and an honestly superb cast of players... but now my friends, the natural end of the game has come about.

After we read Half Blood Prince, we debated ways to include the new canon into the plot... It wouldnt have been impossible... But there was something not quite right about fiddling about with our character's backstory so far into a well established game.
We love Almost Grown, and as much as we cant bare to lay it to rest, messing around with it seemed somehow worse.

So, we debated and deliberated, discussed and deconstructed many ideas. In the end, we concluded that the best course of action was to create a new game, taking into account the new canon, from the ashes of Almost Grown. A game that reflects a history of dark times that Half Blood Prince implies are to come...

And so we present to you; From The Ashes. A new rp game brought to you by Kel and Xen. It is not Almost Grown with a new name, but it has a very similar premise. There is still an application process, though as valued members of Almost Grown, we encourage you to apply to this new game.

Thankyou for all your time and effort over the past year. This game has been an incredible pleasure to run, and I speak for both Kel and myself when I say we have enjoyed playing with you all.

new rpg, spoiler warning [Wednesday, July 20th, 2005
@ 10:50am

so, i've been a shitty AG member lately (mostly cause it's so slow and my characters' love interests are AWOL, but also cause the plot is a bit too big for me at the moment with so few players)

but, that said, andrea and i are starting a new group over at greatest journal. i've spent the morning getting the foundation built. but feel free to check it out it's a 7th year trio game that will include the NEW CANON (***spoiler warning***, don't check it out unless you plan to be spoiled). i'm going to be playing draco, charlie, and perhaps pansy. we already have a hermione, bill, and penelope (bill and penelope are reserved for andrea). i've also reserved tonks for alex (let me know if you want me to reserve someone else too). and i've reserved snape incase eric is interested (cause when he's active, he's the best snape of all time).

so, yeah, just putting it out there.

Hey guys!

I think the time has come to consider the exsistance of Isobel Pranger in this RPG futile.  She's got no point and no place, so I would love it if she could be defriended and anything else that's required for a hasty exit.  I'll still have lostatoad and miss_emma_dobbs, though they're currently breaking while I figure out what comes next for them as characters and recovering from HBP as well as re-reading it.  I also, apparently, have to go camping again this weekend.  I promise, I'll be back soon!

Thanks bunches!

So. I take it you've all heard the news.

24 hours after we found out that London had won the Olympics and the city was in a state of elation, the news turned sour.

London had been attacked by terrorists.

7 explosions, 33 confirmed fatalities so far... All train lines are closed in the city, most of the buses have been cancelled, and mobile phone networks are jammed...


In light of this, I have a question for you all.

Do we include this in our game- as we have done with previous news stories... or is this one something we dont touch?

Id like a vote.

Do we include the terrorists attacks into our plot?


Thanks everyone.

Back. :)

Thankyou both Kelly's for being amazing and keeping up the good work while I was away.

The news from Jessi is that Ginny will be on a mission until she gets back IRL from England.
So. Now we know, lets get down and dirty with the plotting!

Alright guys. Just a heads up regarding the big plot.
That DE meeting thread is now done.
It didnt wrap up particularly cleanly, but hey. They never do, and it's not a big deal.

The bones of the meeting:
Pansy announced her plan to ressurect Voldie.
Snape and various un-dead DE criticised her.
She layed down an ultimatum on their arses, and that was that.

With any luck, this is how its gonna flow:
There is this wand plot under-way...
That needs to kick off pronto...

The ressurection will be delayed once more (due in part to that), and there needs to be heightened DE activity and more DA/ Order/ Auror meetings/ general worriment too.

This thing should all be culminating in a big show down soon. By soon, I mean in the next 2 weeks or so.

So! If anyone needs to do any plotting, or confirm plots that have already been decided, please do so soon.
To all members who have been inactive recently, now is the time to start playing again.
This is a key plot to the game.

We will be reviewing membership after this plot.

Cheers everyone. Have fun with it!

Bet you missed me. ;)

May I just say,


The actual date we're looking at here, is June 6th (I think), so I was a little late off the mark.

Love you all muchly.

Hi all.
Im joing the haitus sqaud, and letting you know I wont be here for a week or so.
Please please please feel free to carry on with plotting and posting. Ron will be chilling with Hermione, walking Treestump, buying baby things, being thoughtful about the future, and worried about DE activity.
My other charas (Pansy, Lucius, Dolohov, Rita-ish), I've left in cetain capable hands.
SO. Good luck.
Look forward to getting stuck in when Im back.

Just a short note, to let you know, that Tuesday afternoon (Danish time, which is 1 hour ahead of London, any other timezones... do your own math!), I'm heading out to Copenhagen, and I won't be back until Saturday. I'm not sure as to how much online time I will get (if any at all), so if you want Bill involved in anything, just go ahead (I don't own him, JKR owns him, at least that's what it says everywhere, right?).

Anyhow, just thought I'd let you know :-)

Bill is back, and he's ready to hook up with his family, once again.

As for me, I'm new here, and I can't wait to get started *jumps excitedly in my chair*, and I will do my very best to make this work.

Let's get the DE plotting and the party started, dudes!
