Appare Vestigium is set at the height of the First Wizarding War. We are primarily sandbox but also have regular events. We've structured the site to allow for as much creativity as possible from our members, and accept a wide variety of characters from Death Eaters to civilians itinerant magizoologists. Those unfamiliar with the fandom are more than welcome! We have links in our Newbie Guide to a variety of resources and our guest-accessible Discord has a #questions-and-moderation channel where no question is stupid. Come check us out!
In the summer of 1980, the war between the Death Eaters and the Order of the Phoenix has reached its peak. There have been heavy casualties on both sides, but as of yet, there is no end in sight. The beleaguered Order is becoming more and more desperate to end the fighting before it can spread beyond England and into the rest of the wizarding world. Failure could mean an irrevocable turn for the worse. Pureblood supremacists have been trying for years to pass anti-creature and anti-Muggleborn legislature. They have yet to succeed, but a shift in power to support them would be catastrophic for thousands of magical beings across the UK.
The fate of the world hangs in the balance during a war that some do not even acknowledge. Some prefer to be willfully ignorant because they are not endangered. Some simply don't believe that Voldemort and his Death Eaters exist. But for those who do believe, the past decade has been a time of violence, chaos, and upheaval. The Death Eaters revel in it and do everything in their power to make the wizarding world even more unstable. The Order of the Phoenix has done everything in their power to protect innocent people but many see them as no better than the terrorists they fight.
If the war ever ends, will there be anyone left to pick up the pieces?
