EVENT: INTERNATIONAL MAGICAL COOPERATION SUMMIT.
LOCATION: THE SAVOY HOTEL. LONDON, ENGLAND.
FRONT LINES : THE PLOT SO FAR
The months following the New Years event have been difficult. The magical authorities having no real answers to provide the community for the odd occurrences of the night. The day was dismissed as an unfortunate result of a strange magical backup in the area, the presence of which the magical government has promised and yet failed to locate. Worry and panic have gripped various parts of the magical community across the globe prompting this summit of international magical cooperation to address future plans and control of the situation between nations. Various agendas are being rolled out. Everything from nations who think tightening the leash on the magical community to prevent exposure and further panic all the way to Darcy Elizabeth Ludlow potentially rolling out her proposed plan to eliminate the statute of secrecy will be up for review. Tensions are high as nations clash over the potential vow from America to remove such a statute and the implications on their own nations as fallout. The event taking place in London shall have the best security with various members of law enforcement undercover as attendees and double as the annual meeting of nations dinner party to conserve on time. Media personnel are reminded to be courteous to their fellows.
BEHIND THE SCENES :: THE ALLIANCE
To those in law enforcement it's no secret that in early 2043 a time-turner went missing from the department of mysteries in England. Despite best efforts to locate the item it seems to have simply vanished into thin air. Those within the upper ranks of Elisaveta's Alliance will know the item came shipped specially to her hands specifically for this event. What she knows of Catriona's hunters is barely enough to fill a shot glass but the cloud looming over them in the distance is enough for her to know the statute of secrecy CAN NOT be lifted. These assumed no-maj assailants CAN NOT be let into their world. They could never locate them if they were so integrated into their society and the things they would learn of the magical community would make them an even greater threat. Imagine, a no-maj in possession of great magical items. Elisaveta has appealed to those closest to Darcy Elizabeth Ludlow to make the woman see reason and change her mind about exposing the magical world. However, it's unclear if they were successful. The Alliance has infiltrated the event, time-turner in hand. Ready to reverse Darcy's bold proclamation if she goes forward with abolishing the statue in public - and see her six feet under.
BEHIND THE SCENES :: THE HUNTERS
They had been training Darcy for this moment ever since she was a child. A pawn to expose the magical world. The board is set and Catriona Walsh has no interest in seeing her plans come so far only to fail. With what information they have discovered from various spies and the study of magical items they have created a few mechanisms to prevent the use of magic when activated. Thanks to careful infiltration they have them placed all about the hotel in preparation for the worst. The statute will be abolished. One way or the other.
BEHIND THE SCENES :: THE PREMISE
The Alliance and Hunters mingle with the elite and law enforcement alike. Media clamor to the sidelines for stories and photos as speeches are exchanged and glasses filled. The room goes silent as Darcy Elizabeth Ludlow takes the stage to address American interests. Yet, despite all previous plans to do as the Hunters wish and abolish the statute of secrecy in America, Darcy does just the opposite while playing into Elisaveta Amélie Grindelwald's hands. A surprised silence falls over the crowd as an unfamiliar gunshot rings out through the halls and President Darcy Elizabeth Ludlow falls near her podium on stage. After all, if Darcy is dead to the Hunters, they still have her signed bill to abolish in hand and ready to submit as her last act as president thanks to infiltration in the American Ministry. Dead, she can not dispute this. The Alliance, however, can not let this happen. The crowd falls to the floor and runs toward exits as panic grips the room. Elisaveta rushes forward, ready to reset time and save Darcy from an untimely fate. Yet, as she reaches for her time-turner, Catriona is one step ahead of her, activating the anti-magic devices planted about the room. The sudden surge of magic and unseen force field collide causing a massive explosion that sends everyone reeling. Blood and debris fill the air as people scramble to get to their feet and draw wands. However, it's in this moment they realize - some of their loved ones are missing. Not just within the building but in all of London as the dust settled. Where were they?
As some begin to regain consciousness they realize they're no longer in London. Perhaps no longer even in 2043. The accident has sent groups of random people through time to various points in history. The most frightening thing? As they begin to get their thoughts in order they realize - they've lost their magical abilities. Will anyone come for them? Does anyone know they're missing? How do they get back? How do they survive?
- This event is open for everyone. Students and adults are all welcome because this event takes place during SPRING BREAK.
- You DO NOT have to be at the event to be "missing" but you DO need to be somewhere in London at the time of the explosion!
- ALL types of magical use are suspended during this event. This includes use of regular magic and magical abilities such as seer, legilimens etc.
- You may be "missing" for up to ONE MONTH in this past life you're living BUT when you are brought back to modern day times it will be DURING the time of the explosion. If you are within range of the blast, you WILL be hurt.
- When you are brought back to modern times you will be wearing whatever you were wearing in your past life at that moment, keep that in mind!
- You will not bounce back and forth between various times. The time you select at the beginning will be the time you are stuck with until brought back to modern times! There's no limitation to how far through time one can go, have some fun!
- When you are brought back, it will be by a member of magical law enforcement just doing their job at a later date to correct the issue. Make some new plots!
