• Welcome to Magical Awakenings!

    Magical Awakenings, commonly referred to as MA, is a forum-based role-playing game established in the world created by J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. Our site takes place in a post-Potter universe, with a slight AU twist, and sets focus on Hogwarts and the United Kingdom.

    Our site's main goal is to allow writers a space to craft characters attending Hogwarts, immersed in the larger Magical society, or even Muggle society, all within the UK. However, this is still a site with a foundation in the universe created by JK Rowling. Just with some twists to connect the lines that we might not yet know.

    Our site accepts writers to join us as canon characters or to breath life into an original character. Whether they are barely old enough to understand magic or a muggle confused by that vanishing door, we welcome all to join us and write!

      With borders shared with Wales to the west and Scotland to the north, England makes up a large portion of the United Kingdom. England's terrain mostly comprises low hills and plains - but you will find uplands in the north and southwest. With London as it's capital, many muggles and wizards have found home here.

      Scotland is bordered by England to the south and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean with the North Sea to the east and the North Channel and Irish Sea to the south-west. Scotland isn't just land, it has over 700 islands as apart of its territory. Home to Hogwarts & Hogsmeade, this is a very magical place.

      Bordered by England to its east, the Irish Sea to its north and west, and the Bristol Channel to its south, Wales is known for its wonderful stretches of mountains and coastline. Certain areas of Wales have long been strictly wizard communities, but as muggles moved so did the magical folks who called it home.

      Here is the place to advertise your own site or board without the repercussions of being yelled at by an admin. We would like you to keep advertising to this board only and out of the PMs/cbox chats. As we would like you to respect the fact that we worked hard to acquire and keep the members we have here and to advertise else where or under other pretenses is just down right rude to the owners of said board you're doing so on.
