    Welcome to I Solemnly Swear! ISS is an active, literate/advanced Marauders-era roleplay based in the Marauders' sixth year. Please sign up with your character's First and Last name in Titlecase (e.g., Lily Evans).

    The beginning of the summer holidays are a much-needed break from the stress of schoolwork, exams, and the like. It has been a difficult year for everyone, what with the dark events happening during term, and the increasing panic and fear outside the school's walls. Now, with a fresh batch of graduates to go face the world, everybody must still be on their guard, because anything might happen, and everyone must be prepared to face it one way or another.

No New Posts The Clock Tower
Probably one of the most impressive parts of Hogwarts once you’ve managed to get over the Quidditch Pitch and The Black Lake (not to mention the castle itself). It houses a huge clock and it starts on the Third Floor level since it’s on top of a hill.

No New Posts The Entrance Hall
A large cavernous foyer with arching stone ceilings and stain-glass windows. Directly behind the giant oak doors leading into the castle from the grounds. First years assemble here before Sorting.

No New Posts Great Hall
With four grand tables particularly placed side-by-side and a high table at the very end of the hall, this place was donned with immediate superiority. All meals are eaten here and feasts occur most often on holidays.

Believe it or not, students actually attend classes at Hogwarts and learn things. All classrooms, regardless of in-castle location, are here, as well as a brief introduction to each professor.

No New Posts The Concourse
The Concourse is not only a place for kids of all Houses to go if they need a place to hang out or study, but it is also the only place visitors may enter or exit the castle. Filled with comfortable chairs and couches, as well as roaring fires and study tables, the Concourse is a perfect place for some inter-House unity.

No New Posts The Practice Room
Situated on the second floor of the school, the Practice Room is a safe and secure environment for students to go and practice spells for classes. Whether it be for an exam, or just students wanting to improve their skills on a certain spell, any and all can do so in the Practice Room.

No New Posts Room of Requirement
Secret room in the castle that can only be reached when you’re in great need of it. Located on the seventh floor of the castle, its hidden entrance is in front of the tapestry of Barnabas the Barmy trying to teach trolls to dance. To make the room appear, a person has to walk past the section of the blank wall three times concentrating on what is needed.

No New Posts Hallways & Corridors
Every winding stairway, every hallway, and every secret passage way leads somewhere within this castle. Whether you're roaming around or even trying to get to class, these are the paths throughout the castle.

No New Posts Bathrooms
Number one, number two…look, no one wants to know what business you have in the restrooms. Just go in, come out, and move on. And try not to get too mad over the rumours written on the bathroom wall.

Every single book is located in this library. It is commonly used for studying, but even if you need some peace and quiet, this is a great place to be.

No New Posts Headmaster's Office
The Headmaster's office is a large, circular room with portraits of previous headmasters hanging on the walls. The entrance to it is behind a statue of a gargoyle on the seventh floor. When given the proper password, the gargoyle will leap aside and the wall behind it will split in two to reveal a spiral stone staircase that moves upward.

No New Posts Filch's Office
Filch's office is a small room with a single oil lamp hanging from the ceiling. It smells of fried fish. In it are filing cabinets with details of the misdeeds of students, another cabinet marked as "Confiscated and Highly Dangerous," chains and manacles (not used these days but kept polished just in case), and lots of forms to write up malefactors.
