So you've made your character and you've completed some threads! Things are great but what else does the Vault offer to develop your character?

Maybe your character was particularly adept at divination in school or your character wants to move up through the healer ranks at St. Mungo's. Or, if you want to shake things up, an animagus within the Ministry of Magic could be an advantageous ally. Consider getting a skill or ability for your character!

  1. Choose a skill or ability and read the requirements detailed on the page
  2. Start plotting! Use classifieds, Discord, create or join open threads. Keep track of any information, threads, or pre-requisites you might need as these will be needed for the form
  3. Fill in and send in the form
  4. Profit!
