An AU Harry Potter RPG

trousers of time: with every decision, with every decision, time splits into two different paths – the path you took and the path you didn’t take.

Trousers of Time is an AU Harry Potter Role Play Game, in which the characters we know and love are given a chance to live life differently. History has changed but people stay the same. When Voldemort attacked the Potters, this time, he encountered Harry first. After casting the killing curse, it rebounded on him, as we all know, and reduced him to a spirit-like being, leaving James and Lily alive to take their son to St Mungo’s. When Death Eaters attacked the Longbottoms, they were ready for such an attack and were able to fend off their attackers who were caught and sent to Azkaban. And while Sirius makes sure James, Lily and Harry are alright, Peter Pettigrew is caught by Aurors and sent to Azkaban as well.

For your convenience, we've outlined the Eighties and the Nineties. All canon information that has been altered has been written in blue. A list of game canon can be found here and here.

The Rules of the game may be found here.

Flourish and Blott's bookstore recently advertised a new, magical journal, capable of showing itself to other journalists who had purchased the journals as well. Claiming it to be the Next Big Thing, the journals sold out in minutes after being put on display, and very few people were able to get their hands on them. Join the lucky few who were able to purchase journals, and enter a world where one different outcome, from one single event, changed the course of history forever.
