Welcome to Tallygarunga, an original roleplay set in the Harry Potter universe. Set in present-day Australia, tensions are high between the Ministry of Magic and the only Ministry-run wizarding school in the country. Become like the other snooty private schools? Not a chance.

Originally established in August 2006, Tallygarunga prides itself on an inclusive and active community. Once part of the Tally family, always part of the Tally family. Whether you're here for the first time, the thousandth time, or returning after a long time---welcome home.

  1. Something strange this way cometh

    Hey there! I would love to live the cat life, tbh. My four-legged son has a far better life than I do, and reality can absolutely be disappointing. It's great to have you here with us, I look forward to seeing you around the board!
  2. New buttons!

    Oh hey there! You might have noticed that the editor looks a little different! It's been given a little reorganisation, and a few extra shiny buttons (plus some old ones that have new icons). Let's check them out! Big header, small header Same function, just a different look. The BH and SH icons on the editor now apply the big/small header style to any text you want. These will then remain consistent with any thematic changes on the board, so you'll never have to worry about it looking weird after a skin change. Tag! You're it! Group threads got you down? Looking for an easy way to separate out who has been mentioned/should read that post? The tag box is here for you! The @ button will bring up a nice little box for you to insert your mentions: Tag @mentionsomeonehere And because you're using the mentions function, they'll also get a notification. Sweet! One-click group colour! Text that is bolded using the B button on the editor now has a colour applied after the post is processed. While a neat feature, it does mean that it's harder to apply your own colours. The colourful buttons on the editor will now apply text colour from the selected group, just hover over the button to see exactly which group you're clicking on. Or, you could be crazy and rainbow your text. You do you! Got ideas? Is there something else you'd like to see on the editor? Let me know! All ideas will be considered. <3
  3. Mousie's Bug Bashing Thread

    This should be fixed now. This is working as intended, I'll look at coding some buttons/shortcuts to have alt text colours if you like. Need to come back to this due to Firefox's hideous caching issues, but hopefully this is fixed. Same for the weird display on threads.
  4. Thirteen is lucky for some!

    Happy 13th birthday, Tally! Thirteen years and two days ago, Tallygarunga didn't exist. It seems weird to think that was ever the case. Tally has been such a big part of my life for so long it's hard to imagine life before that. Although we were out of action for a few years there, I still count August 6th as the "true" birthday of Tally. We might not have been all together, writing and doing as we do now---but the spirit never left. It sat, waited, and came back to life when the time was right. So we're celebrating the 13th anniversary of Tally's first launch with a new skin, and this here sentimental post from yours truly. None of this would ever be possible without each and every one of you, contributing to the community and being your amazing passionate and enthusiastic selves. I never wanted just a roleplay board, I wanted a community that looked after everyone in it. I wanted somewhere people could go, without being afraid that they would be mocked, pressured, or looked down on. And we've done that. They may have been my goals, but you are the people who make them happen. Thank you. Some notes on the new skin Hopefully you all like it! I always get nervous over major changes, especially skin releases. There will be some quirks that need to be fixed, and things that don't quite look how they should. If I could get your assistance in noting these down in my bug bashing thread, I would be most grateful. It hasn't been coded for mobile yet either, though most of it should work okay. Thanks again everyone, here's to many more years of Tally awesome!
  5. Ozzie Lyle

    This is a general character idea, and can be changed significantly as suits the player that would like to write this role. Osbert "Ozzie" Lyle, a well-known character in the Victorian Ministry of Magic. Attended Tallygarunga along with his siblings, and believes in the school's ability to raise forward-thinking and innovative witches and wizards. Ozzie's days are mostly spent fighting back against budget cuts, arguing for better support for all schools, and trying to keep the Victorian magical education system in line. He's extremely passionate about what he does, and visits each of his schools regularly. He does have a soft spot for Tally, the school that he has the most ability to influence, and a great relationship with Alan Burdett. Ozzie loves terrible jokes, and is often described as "jolly, but persistent".
  6. Keaton Kennard

    This is a general character idea, and can be changed significantly as suits the player that would like to write this role. Graduate of Greyheme, Keaton grew up in a world where his worth was determined by the cash his parents had. This was fine, they had plenty, and Keaton was king of the playground. Whatever he wanted, Keaton was given. He looked down on students of lower status and lesser wealth, as his parents did to their peers. A lazy student, Keaton was forced to start taking responsibility for himself and his actions when his school grades failed to get him into the law career he wanted. The closest he could get was a position training for the Auror Force, where for once he was given no preferential treatment. He passed the program and is now beginning his first assignments, and has been stationed in Narragyambie to help keep the peace and maintain the balance between muggle and magical communities.
  7. Mish Vaughn

    Mish (never call her Michelle) has worked at the Drunken Roo for more than half her life. Kicked out of Penrose at sixteen for having a "scandalous" relationship with her roommate, Mish's parents didn't have the money to get her un-expelled. Nor did they want anything further to do with her, leaving the girl without home or support. Knowing she had nowhere else to go, her then-charms teacher @Katherine Belmontgot in touch with @Alan Burdett, hoping he would have a solution. Mish was offered a bed and learning at Tallygarunga, later choosing to drop out of school altogether and pick up a job at The Drunken Roo. She likes working for @Matthew Belmontand is incredibly loyal to him and to the business. The Roo Crew have become her family, providing her with the support and connection she lacked in her childhood. Though she knows that Kate had a hand in her finding her place there, Mish is still not a big fan of the woman---and will always side with Matt whenever the couple fight.

  10. Dajinder Patel

    This is a general character idea, and can be changed significantly for the person who wishes to fill this role. Dash settled into teaching as a means of making money for his true passion: travel. He considers himself well-versed in the world, a lover of language and culture, but most of all: the weird geography and dangerous magical places that few dare venture to. Passing his experiences on to students when he is home in Australia is his way of keeping the memories fresh until he can go make new ones. He's widely regarded as a 'fun' professor, and loved by the children. Even those not great at geography find his storytelling and experiences riveting.
  11. Lanelle Bellemer

    Loyalty isn't in Laney's wheelhouse. She believes in success at any cost, is a very capable networker and seeks positions of power to fulfil her need for control. She went to Penrose herself, back when her now-boss Katherine Belmont was teaching Charms. Lanelle is trained to teach Defence Against the Dark Arts herself, but only takes a minimal number of classes these days, in favour of administrative work to keep the school running smoothly. While Kate's husband was in a coma, a lot of the administrative burden fell on Lanelle and she believes that she deserves to replace Kate on a permanent basis. She has always been ambitious and driven, precise in how she carries out her plans, and rarely does anything that she isn't certain will work. Her family is well-connected in the Australian wizarding society, being from old English blood, and supposedly pure.
  12. Dvora Laine

    This is a general character idea, and can be changed significantly as suits the player that would like to write this role. Dvora is very loyal to Tallygarunga, and to the home that it gave her when she did not fit in with the mainstream Melbourne wizarding society. Her family is mildly ashamed that their daughter went there, but have come to accept over time that her education turned out okay. While a fantastic and talented writer, Dvora often clashes with her superiors at The Mage over what they call her "extreme" views on blood prejudice and her seeming vendetta against the old wizarding society in Melbourne. As a result, Dvora spends a lot of time around Narragyambie when she can, the town that became home during her time at Tallygarunga.

  14. Hello, Tally!

    Hey Audrey, and welcome to Tally! I love bubble tea. So much. Actually, I love tea a lot. And don't worry about mis-matched spelling, Australia likes to use some US versions and some UK versions... so it's all very relevant! Haha. Awesome to have you with us!
