crackandbleed oocandbleedThe year is 1980 and Albus Dumbledore is dead. While the nation reels from the Headmaster's mysterious demise, propaganda and guerilla violence flourish. Having ridden the coattails of this aura of fear, Bartemius Crouch, Sr. has risen to power, widely supported and completely unchecked; slowly he has transformed the Ministry of Magic into an Orwellian regime. Now nothing but a Dark Lord with approval ratings, Crouch's fanatical pursuit of order tightens his choke hold on Britain. While innocent dissidents rot in Azkaban, Death Eaters roam free - untouchable due to their wealth and status, they feed back into the public's terror and ultimately maintain the Ministry's dictatorship. The only resistance to this madness is the Order of the Phoenix. Once an organization dedicated to spreading unfiltered knowledge and duelling only when necessary, under Alastor Moody's new leadership the Order is becoming progressively more militant, combating both Voldemort and their own government in an attempt to finally restore peace.
