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?
MAY 1981
Warm days, cool nights
Full Moon: Tuesday 19


We’re having a fiesta! Or at least our beans are. This month we’ve got Tequila and Salt and maybe some other goodies coming down the track later this month.
As the world continues to descend into turmoil, the Ministry has declared a mandatory curfew for the whole of wizarding Britain. Stay safe out there, folks!

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.
