Welcome to Infinite Arms! We are a no word count, character driven, AU Marauder Era roleplay set in January 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?
January 1981
Dark skies and flurries.
Full Moon: Tuesday 20


The beans this month are Fire Wood and Ember. Can you earn them both? Following a fairly quiet Christmas season, a new month and a new year sweep in. With it comes a familiar threat, but also a new set of nightmares. With creatures terrorizing the Wizarding and Muggle worlds, people begin to doubt the Ministry’s ability to handle the creature threats they’ve been talking about trying to fix for ages, others are calling for more stringent regulations, and still others are just too afraid to get involved. With tension and fear running rampant, it’s hard to remember that there are bigger threats out there.

St. Mungo’s Hospital is the premier healing institution in the United Kingdom. It is located in a rather innocuous old brick building and may be accessed by speaking to one of the mannequins in the shop windows of the dilapidated Purge and Dowse clothing store.

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.
