Snitchers RPG

It had started as two men's joint quest to control the wizarding world. Lucius Malfoy and Rabastan Lestrange worked to take over the wizarding world and they were successful, minus one little band of rebels. But, even power isn't forever and the deepest of bonds can be broken. As Rabastan Lestrange came to accept the man he wanted to become, Lucius Malfoy was seduced by the power the Elder Wand brought him.

With the fate of the magical world in the balance, these two former friends are now at odds. One is driven by love, the other by lust. As old enemies are forced to become allies and those who crave power are tempted by their desires, it's impossible to know what will happen. Can there be a winner in a world torn apart? Will the magical world ever truly know peace? Can anyone truly trust either of these men with their futures?

Snitchers is a dark game that is not afraid to push the envelope with dark themes and unhappy endings. It is a plot heavy game with a vast array of players and characters to interact with. If you're tired of purely social games with happy endings, and want to explore the darker nature of HP, please explore the links below to see if this game is for you.

MOST WANTED: Arthur Weasley, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Hufflepuffs, Ravenclaws, Malfoy Supporters, Muggleborns, Lee Jordan
