Never To Return is a sandbox style RPG site set in 2043. We are loosely based in the Harry Potter canon fandom and follow a unique, member driven, alternative mythology laced plotline. The wizarding world has known peace for over sixty years but there are troubles ahead as rumors of a ‘second salem’ begin to spread. Magical kind have been rumored to be dying out in recent generations sparking a public outcry for change. While seeking simple means of survival old ideals of purity and necessity have awoken a century old legacy. Immerse yourself in a world where evil wears a new face and unforeseen terrors lurk in the shadows even beyond the magical world. Will you fight for magical supremacy or hunt the blooded? Choose wisely, but remember, even the hunters can become they prey.
0.1 PLOT UPDATE As the year comes to a close darkness continues to stir in the shadows; where justice is fought, rebellions boil near the rim; where evil stirs, resistance builds. From every angle of the known world forces begin to come into play. The policies of Minister Blackwell have proven effective in the eradication of the terrorist attacks forever proving the international unity and the power of government dominates all. However, as people rejoice in their freedom from suppression a greater thread lingers in the shadows. Old enemies come to the forefront promising further unity and safety for all magical kind while another seeks to eradicate it. The Magical World is splitting at the seams. It's no longer a case of blood purity, but of survival for all of magical kind. Will you choose to join a once deemed extremist group to save your future and that of your children, or will you fight against it? One thing is clear; those who venture into the darkness will never return.
0.2 ADMIN TEAM. Hello everyone, as you can see we've had a major overhaul; the skin and graphics having been lovingly crafted by Symphony & Ceilia as we invited a wave of new members on the site. We've cleaned up the rosters as well as the site plot while taking a shift toward running as a sandbox. Should you have any issues feel free to PM the links above.
never to return.

Ornate marble floors shown unbearably bright against the backdrop of the setting sun. The moonstone finish reflected an almost picturesque mix of violet and ruby onto the surrounding walls and stairwells. Her training area had no doors, no restrictions. The very basis of entering with an open mind and leaving the same, no walls to hold the heart, no barriers for the mind to fall prey to. The sanctuary was perched among the vast greenery within the valley, the balconies close enough to view the emerald green waters of the beaches and falls seemingly below in the distance. Trees from the river sitting just to the back of the villa had years of growth pushing them upward and draping their wide and fan shapen leaves atop the stone foundations. The wildlife was teaming and ever changing - certain charms in place to keep their habitats separate from that of the villa’s human inhabitants.
This place was called home not just to Svanna when away, but to each and every wandering soul that found itself upon her steps. The delightful sounds of what most had forgotten, nature and themselves, always finding an echo inside the great halls. She would never turn away one in need, and as well as her home she had a few permanent residents in students and fellow instructors - most likely men and women that had once been her own students save for a few traveling monks here and there. She was truly blessed to have them among her, each and every one of them, no questions asked. Some came to her from famine and poverty, some from loss and alcohol, each an individual lost among the crowds of society. Here they were safe. Here they were loved. Most of all, here they found themselves again. Even if in their own twisted elements.
Though mostly free reign to those that called the place home and such as she it’s mistress, there were a few simple rules she had in place to keep the serious feel. Upon entering one was to abandon nearly all worldly possessions, for luxury and extravagance were one thing she aimed to cure in the world. There need not be any distractions for one searching for peace, purpose, and the will to take another life without the full weight of it weighing on the conscious. Students within the house were to don a saree or agreeable robes, a tradition Indian dress to preserve the feel and authenticity of what those were here to seek. It promoted seriousness and awareness in those that may have mistaken it a joke. Last of all there were to be no disruptions, or one would find themselves removed. There were no food rations or limits as she would like for every one of her students to know their own limits, set goals and achieve them, no matter what they may include - although food rationing is a good first test she poses for those of a serious mind that wish to find control in their lives.
”Time is the manner of all things. Everything will eventually bend beneath it’s passing. Our bodies, our fates, the lives of our loved ones and even the very Earth that preserves our existence. We must look beyond the grasp of time. We must look within, become one with the seconds and the very air as they pass through our being into our soul. To find true happiness we must be grounded. We must put aside worldly items and distractions and find joy in the simple art of existence. Once you find peace you will also find that you will excel with greater ease, you will find yourself once again. Stress and anger, every emotion that holds you captive as a human will also hold down your soul. They cloud the mind, prevent reason and unconditional love for others and yourself. Deliverance lies within.”
Svanna walked between rows of sitting students, most with their eyes closed intent on better focus, and others with their eyes toward the horizon full of hope and determination. Some were of magical heritage, some were not. It seemed those with an open mind and magical background came here to learn to focus their magic, to release their emotions from disruption of spells thus making them more precise and less hesitant. Others came from hardships and merely wished to find their happiness again, a path they could firmly set their feet upon with a smile and feeling of hope. Even if purpose could be found while holding a blade of sneaking about in the shadows. The crows were first and foremost a family. A small smile passed her features as she left the students to their thoughts, hazel eyes falling to the back of the room nearest the back entrance where a rather familiar face stood watching.
