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?

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?

the press

The Prophet is the only daily, wizarding newspaper in Britain. It is delivered by owl on a daily basis to nearly every wizarding household. On occasions when the need is great, special editions of the Evening Prophet are distributed to subscribers as well. The daily paper has a front page, lifestyle, sports, and business pages, as well as classifieds and cartoons. Weekly specials include the government section Friday mornings and an extended lifestyle and society look on Monday mornings. The paper is always printed in black and white.

Their offices are in Diagon Alley and do all work related to creating, printing, and distributing in-house. As such the staff varies greatly from the men working the printing press, to the editors in their glass-fronted offices, to the young people who take jobs prepping owls in the morning for delivery or running papers round to the shops and such in Diagon Alley.

The Daily Prophet is a subsidy owned by the Rosier family. Operations are overseen by Evan Rosier. The editor in chief is Barnabus Cuffe.

Recent censorship efforts have made the pieces published shorter and less varied. Deadlines have been moved up to allow the powers-at-be time to review everything thoroughly before it goes to print. Things in the office have been tense for everyone for months with layoffs not out of the question following the decline in printable materials.

Full of cookery, home, gardening, and craft ideas, with a smattering of all of your favorite celebrity gossip, this magazine is published weekly and targeted primarily at a female audience. Also featured are regular restaurant and shop reviews, relationship advice, quizzes, and coverage of the latest fashion trends. Witch Weekly is available at your local news stand, by owl-post subscription, and is stocked in all the waiting rooms at St. Mungo's.

Their offices are located in Diagon Alley. Printing and distribution are handled out of house, by the friends down the way at the Prophet on Wednesdays through a special contract arrangement that is rumored to have risen from a bad Gobstones bet.

Witch Weekly is independently owned and operated by the Misslethorpe family following its founding in 1901. Hyacinth Vector is the editior-in-chief.

Recently, readers will notice an uptick in articles aimed less at macrame and more at current events. It seems that the folks at WW are taking advantage of their minimal censorship to push through some rather hard-hitting news stories that wouldn't ever make the page at the Prophet.

From music, to interactive programming, to Quidditch broadcasts, to new - the Wizarding Wireless Network is the place to keep the wireless tunes in the wizarding world. Whether or you're at your desk listening to the Quidditch match you wish you could be at, or gathered round the fire with the family listening to a dramatic reading of Beedle the Bard radio plays, WWN provides round-the-clock entertainment and up the the minute breaking news alerts.

The Wizarding Wireless Network broadcasts from Hogsemede village and has been running continually since 1935, switching to the twenty-four hour format in the late sixties. They employ a number of hosts for their daily and weekly radio shows, they independently produce radio plays, they have commentators at major sporting and gaming events from Quidditch to Gobstones championships, and of course, they're the place to get your music heard by the wizarding world at-large.

They are a public radio network owned and operated in part by Ministry grants and with generous contributions from listeners like you!

They were perhaps most effected by recent censorship, given the nature of their relationship to the Ministry. Shows with the purpose of discussing major political agendas were cancelled nearly immediately and the more controversial hosts put on alert.

One of the newest wizarding publications on the market, it's alright if you've never hear of The Quibbler. It covers stories that most people couldn't even dream up. It is published on a highly irregular basis. It's a startup, trying to find its footing in a heavily-censored world.

Their small operation is run out of Diagon Alley. They do their printing in house and distribute largely by hand though there is a subscription system in place for those interested.

It is owned and operated by Xenophilius Lovegood who is also the editor-in-chief and founder.

Guerrilla journalism at its finest, the Aparecium was founded to fill the void left by censorship of the major news outlets. They cover news that nobody else can from perspectives that nobody else has. It thrives on the input of readers and people writing in to bare witness to the horrors of the current war.

This newsletter is most often distributed secretly, littering the floor of the Atrium at the Ministry or stacked neatly by the door of your favorite shop - they make sure that everyone can get their hands on one, but do so in as-anonymous a manner as possible.

They have a limited staff and membership is by invitation only. It is currently run by Christopher Catchlove and Fabian Prewett.
