THE MINI-STRY!
One-Year Anniversary Event


Spoiler: announcement and sign-ups show
Hello there, lovelies!

As you may or may not be aware, The Ministry's one-year anniversary will be on April 27, 2014!

In celebration of our year of community, creativity, and super fun times, we're going to be running

THE MINI-STRY!

What this means is that due to a magical mishap at the Ministry, a number of characters will be de-aged -- that is, they will be transformed into their child-selves.

Here's how it works:

  • Each player will be allowed a maximum of two (2) characters to de-age.
    • All de-aged characters will start between the ages of 9 and 12.
      • De-aged characters will only have the memories they had at the age they are (ex. Harry Potter [Child] would have no memory of defeating Voldemort).
        • De-aged characters will remain inside the Ministry building for the duration of their affliction for their own safety and others'.
          • All characters will return to their normal, in-game ages at the end of the month.
            • All de-aged characters will remain between the ages of 9 and 12 for at least the first ten days of the month. After that point, you may either keep them at the same age or age them up throughout the month.
              • To sign-up, register an age appropriate account for your character with either [Child] or [Tween] after their name and reply with the form below. We'll set everything up from there!


              Code: Select all
              [b][color=#FF4080]De-Age My Character![/color][/b]

              [b]Character Name:[/b] [url=linktopersonnelfile]CHARACTER NAME[/url]
              [b]De-Aging Age:[/b] (Choose an age between 9 and 12 years old)
              [b]Child Account:[/b] [url=alternateaccountlink]Link[/url]
              [b]Child Account Pb:[/b]   
              [b]Child Height:[/b]


              Sign-ups will close April 27th, 2014 -- so get 'er done!


              Edited to add: In the interests of keeping heights for these kids somewhat realistic (and since a lot of us have no idea what average heights for 9-12 year olds are), we've added these handy dandy height (and if you're interested) weight charts for children!

              (of course, you're not required to make your kid average height, or any particular height! But this way you can know whether you're making them a little tall for their age or giving them giantism >.>)

              Spoiler: Introduction and Logistics show
              INTRODUCTION

              During the day on May 1, 2001, a flash blazed through one of the administrative floors of the building. At the time, there were several meetings taking place ranging in importance from debriefings to BUMM planning meetings to the usual administrative time sucks. For whatever reason, the flash was quicker than anyone could notice or measure -- in fact, when it happened, no one seemed to remember it, and went on about their respective days.

              Everything seemed normal until approximately an hour after the flash, at which point in their offices, in the lifts, in the hallways, they began to transform -- shrinking, changing, metamorphosing into child version of themselves.

              CHILDCARE LOGISTICS

                The Ministry lacks the staff to care for the kids, so they will be staying at the next safest place--Hogwarts. Hogwarts has used its Room of Requirement to create a common room for the kids, with separate boys' and girls' dormitories attached.

                All kids will return to the Ministry from 3pm-7pm in order to monitor their progress. During this time they will be restricted to a designated play area, located in Accidents & Catastrophes. It contains a recreation center (with toys, games, books, and areas for sports), a swimming pool, and a dining/snack area.

                Children are restricted to the Hogwarts campus or their designated area inside the Ministry. They are not allowed elsewhere except during special, chaperoned events such as a group picnic or outing. (However, they can still sneak out or try to!)

                If you're playing an unshrunken adult who works in the Ministry building, you have the option of having your character take shifts at the childcare center or having your character run into one of the kids.

                For kids, all magic effects & memories are reversed. The Trace is in effect again. Werewolves who were not lycanths as children are temporarily cured.

                For safety reasons, all kids are given a pocket-sized jewelry box with a special portkey badge that will transport them to the Ministry's atrium on touch.





              Spoiler: Let the Mini-stry Begin show
              LET THE MINI-STRY BEGIN!

                Start off the thread where you character shrinks! Or join someone else's thread as a newly shrunken kid! Because the characters lose their memories as they shrink, they remember nothing about the transformation. From their perspective, they suddenly appeared in a strange place with strange, oversized clothes.

                Any adults who encounter the kids should get them to the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad, stat! The entire Accidents & Catastrophes Department (on floor 3), along with help from the on-site St. Mungo's Clinic, are herding all the kids into various exam rooms that have been set up in the department's east wing.


              Spoiler: ageing up show
              GOOD NEWS:

              • You can start aging your characters up!
                  If you have a de-aged character participating in The Mini-stry and playing them as a kid is getting a little old (harhar), you can start aging them up!

                  You can either do this gradually, or if you'd like to have them revert back to their adult selves in one shot, you can do so at any time starting now!
              • The Mini-stry has been extended by TWO WEEKS!
                  This means that you can continue playing your character as de-aged until June 15th, at which time we'll ask that all Mini-stry threads be wrapped up, and all characters will resume their normal ages.


              Approaching Adulthood

                First, while the plot will be officially over June 14th, if you'd like to extend your little one's time as de-aged to fully explore and wrap up their story, please feel free to do so!

                For those of you preparing to wrap it up or whose shrunken kids are now getting into their young adult phase, there'll be some new freedoms for them to enjoy:

                • De-aged characters ages 17+ will be provided with living space in the Ministry Mews for their own safety but also out of respect for their need for privacy.
                • De-aged quarters in the Mews will be in four-bedroom junior suites, even if the character already has an apartment in the Mews. Suites will be single-sex only, and guards will be posted outside of them.
                • De-aged characters ages 17+ will be enrolled in professional training programs to teach them about the work they're doing as full adults, complete with a stipend (a part of their usual salary).
                • De-aged characters who exhibit disiplinary issues will be enrolled in a sort of military school or "mini-boot camp" to provide them with a greater sense of structure and discipline.
                • All de-aged characters, regardless of age, will continue to undergo regular medical examinations to monitor and document their growth and overall physical well-being.

                Room Assignments:

                  When your character is old enough to move to the Mews (17+), reply here with the following code:

                  Code: Select all
                  [size=150]CHARACTERNAME is legal now!  Move me into the Mews!  :3[/size]
                  [i]roommate requests (optional, can be IC or OOC)[/i]:

                RA Sign-Ups:

                  Now of course, with all these young'uns running around, they'll need a bit of supervision, and so The Ministry will be accepting applications for Resident Advisors (RAs). Applicants must be Ministry employees and current Mews residents are preferred, but other candidates will be considered if they have a suitable background. RAs will be paid an additional stipend plus overtime for their work.

                  Reply to this thread with whoever you want to sign up as an RA!

              Thanks to everyone for participating. It's been an AWESOME month+, and feel free to keep playing your mini-fied personnel longer and move them into the Mews if you'd like!
