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

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?

spring into conflict

It's April. The temperatures are getting warmer and relationships between the two major factions in the wizarding world are heating up as well, while the Ministry is looking on them both with a rather cool eye. Spring has spring and it's going to be a really messy one for sure.

This month, we're rolling out events continually throughout the IC month, so be sure to check back here throughout the month to see what it is we're cooking up. Everything will be posted here and linked in the Announcements channel on the Discord for your viewing pleasure. To keep things clean, the information about the first of such events is below.


This month in BEANS we've got some floral flair to brighten the mood, so check out how to earn those.

One of those beans involves WANT ADS, and there's been additional information about how to go about writing ads, keeping them looking spiffy, and where you should post them to attract attention added to that thread. Make sure to check it out for tips and tricks so you can get that bean!

Also, we'd like to remind everyone to check their claims. As part of the SPRING CLEANING process, we're trying to ensure that everyone's claims are completely up to date. So make sure your characters have been added to the Canon List, and while you're there flip through the rest of the claims as well, just to make sure everyone is where they ought to be. This would be an awesome time to complete those non-mandatory requests, because they're still very helpful for the rest of us.

part one.

The Ministry is cracking down. In the past six months they’ve had a Death Eater arrested from the Auror Office and then last month a member of the once-mysterious Order of the Phoenix went rouge as well from their ranks. There isn’t really a way to identify them without investigation and most have done an excellent job of hiding. That really has Minister Bagnold incredibly upset and the best way she can see to take care of her concerns is to have various Ministry members undergo an inquiry process. Members from both groups ought to be fearful of this new-found interest in tracking them all down.

Working like any other random check might, Ministry Officials will be holding interviews of members of various departments across the Ministry of Magic. It will be in the form of a simple (yet probative) interview in a conference room in the Office of the Minister of Magic. Anybody who wishes for their MINISTRY character to be subject to such an inquiry is welcome to PM the Minister of Magic account for details. These threads will count toward your posting goal this month for the CACTUS BLOSSOM bean. Please remember to mark these with [INQUIRY].


The Death Eaters are none-too-pleased at the response the Order had printed in the Aparecium (and subsequently spread throughout wizarding Britain). Under the supervision of Evan Rosier, the Daily Prophet has printed a very scathing response to this disgusting form of vigilante journalism and asks that anybody with any information regarding the Aparecium or the Order of the Phoenix to step forward. By now basically everyone in the area has seen and read both pieces and are beginning to realize that one of the takes on the issue can’t be right. The Press is shaping up to be a major part of this war and people haven’t even realized that yet. But with accusations flying every which way, censorship running rampant, and journalists themselves having to be stuck somewhere in the middle it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Where do your characters fall in line? Do they trust the Daily Prophet to be the upstanding truth in journalism they’ve always imagined it to be, or do they think that Prophet is printing a bunch of bologna disguised as actual news? Members of the press are invited to a special meeting of WHAT (Writers Having Afternoon Tea) a society for the collaboration of all press members (even broadcasters) to cross the lines that usually divide, and discuss the current unrest in their profession. Invitations will be sent by PM with details to all applicable members. Posts there can be used for the CACTUS BLOSSOM bean. Please remember to mark these with [NEWSPRINT].


Characters of any member group may thread in regards to these events, most especially the press war that seems to be brewing between the powers at be and vigilante journalism. In order to claim a thread for the CACTUS BLOSSOM bean, please center that thread on a character's response to one or both of the news stories. Are they still seeing Aparecium fliers everywhere they go and find them annoying? Do they see someone reading the Daily Prophet on the street and decide to call them out? Are they staging protests at the Daily Prophet offices? Or trying to take matters into their own hands and hunt Aparecium members down? Whatever the case may be, utilize the press event to start the dialogue for the thread to get the bean.

And remember - we're posting many more events throughout the month, so if neither of these strike your fancy, there might be something else for you to get your bean with soon.

part two.

Discrediting the Order and their arm of the press, the Aparecium isn't enough. These are the people who preach justice and fairness, and are also out murdering innocent Pureblood victims in cold blood. They must be stopped at all costs. They must be reminded that they might wish to rise from the ashes, but in order to do that, they must first burn.

Acting on a tip a few Death Eaters have learned the whereabouts of one of the publishers of the Aparecium. Better still at least one of the pair is a known Order of the Phoenix operative. And they live in a muggle area and there's little worry about that loss of life or property. The Dark Mark looms over the flaming remains of what was once an apartment building. Death Eaters mill in the streets, but they've done what they've intended to. They need only wait to see if they managed to smoke any Order members out from the ashes, or if this is a blow they're willing to take sitting down.

DEATH EATERS may earn posts toward their bean for this event by starting a thread at the site of the fire. You are welcome to coordinate as to who set the fire itself, who cast the mark, or if they're just having a bonfire party around the smell of burning flesh. Please use the tag [ASHES].


The Order has all assembled for a meeting, a discussion of the latest developments on the front, follow ups about the inquiries at the ministry, whispers about people being none too happy about the Aparecium. Enough time has passed now since the horrific murder of Elvira Burke, but it's still fresh on everyone's minds.

It isn't unusual for these meetings to be peppered with late comers or people having to duck out in the middle. But it's also not often that everyone can get together en mass to talk about the troubles that plague the organization and the world. Nobody thinks much on it when an Order member enters the room with news, but that news shifts the tone of the meeting incurably. Perhaps it is no longer enough to sit idly by and let the controversy pass. Perhaps the only way to respond is not through words, but by actions.

That is what the Order must now decide.

In order to earn posts toward your bean for this event ORDER MEMBERS, you are welcome to post in the large group meeting thread which can be found HERE or you may start your own thread at headquarters/the scene using the tag [ASHES].
