As the students begin arriving at Hogwarts, everyone gathers in the Great Hall to hear Dumbledore's first day speech.
"Welcome to another year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,"
"No doubt you have heard that Rufus Scrimgeour has taken over as the new Minister of Magic. He has helped us ward Hogwarts against anything nefarious that any ill-meaning wizard might try.
This is not to say we expect anything to happen, but one can never be too cautious. But take warning, as the wards are a bit sensitive and may not be able to tell a serious wizard from someone just playing a practical joke," Dumbledore says, while staring directly at the Weasley twins
"Besides these small measures, I think you will all find Hogwarts much the same as it always has been. Classes will continue as scheduled and --" Dumbledore is interrupted by a Mr Filch
running into the hall.
"It's the Patil girl," he growls. "Parvati. She's dead!"
Ron, Hermione, and Harry exchange glances.
This isn't a good way for the school year to begin at all…
Many of those you would expect are at work here.
, and Hermione
and the Death Eaters
There are also more players than just that, so keep your eyes peeled.
Every night, the Death Eaters will attempt to kill some of you.
The faster you get rid of them, the greater your chances to defeat He Who Must Not Be Named
The longer you wait, the less chance you will have.
Even as you read this, they are helping to return the Dark Lord regain his full power.
If that happens, few if any may survive.
There are more non-special wizards than wizards, but there are quite a few "specials" at play.
Too many powerful wizards to just have a few, y'know.
If you're just a student here, you will want to help Harry defeat Voldemort.
If not, your win condition(s) will be revealed to you.
