Welcome to Infinite Arms! We are a no word count, character driven, AU Marauder Era roleplay set in the year 1981. No one is safe and no one side can claim to be innocent. The Dark Lord has recruited many to his cause, creatures of all types have been attacking citizens and with each passing month the murders and disappearances have increased. Albus Dumbledore is fighting back. He has recruited a select group of talented young witches and wizards to fight against the darkness that threatens the world--but will they be able to resist succumbing to darkness themselves?
April 1981
Scattered Showers
Full Moon: Sunday 19


We have a trio of beans this month! Cactus, Purple Rose and Sunflower. Click to see how you can earn them!
After a disaster-filled April the Ministry has decided to take action, launching an Inquiry into its own employees. Not only that it seems like the various press outlets are taking sides. Who do you believe, the Daily Prophet? Or have you turned to other sources for information?

Anywhere that is not the UK. From France to America to China, this forum is fair game. Do keep in mind that apparition is dangerous across international boarders and is not recommended for great distances. Try a Portkey instead—or maybe one of those terrifying metal tubes the muggles use!

We’re already AU but, why not? All sorts of adventures can be had when we go far outside the bounds of canon. You can play as spies, or super heroes, or characters in an obscure French art film.
