Boarding School of Freaks
Iwaku Installment

A School Life setting in a Science Fantasy Multiverse

  • For many, many, many aeons (an aeon is, I remind the reader, 1,000,000,000 years!), one school stood out in it's ability to gift the infinity which we call the IDS with superior Freaks, mages, martial artists and more.
    Oh you want to know about the IDS. Short for Inter-Dimensional Space, the IDS together with the Outer-Dimensional Space, or ODS, makes up everything. But given that the ODS is made up only out of wild, unpredictable and uncontrollable magic it is the IDS in which most species, civilizations and people live, thrive and exist at all.
    The IDS is made up of what we shortly call Dimensions - Dimensionally Unique Probabilities. Now you might wonder what are those Dimensions. Well put simply they are Universes, Realities. Why the long name? Well that is a long story. Fell free to ask Gamer for answers.
    Anyways moving on, in the long history of the IDS, which spans across at least 1,000,000,000,000 aeons and probably longer one large group of nations, corporations, individuals and other forms of societies has, using the ability to travel between Dimensions, be it with magic, technology or the two jointed in MagiTech, formed the most splendid civilization ever seen - named the Post-Dimensional Society.
    This wast and ever-expanding civilization is by no way perfect; wars, greed and cruelty still are present, be it proxy wars between super-power supported states to all-out battles between two said super-powers. After industrial capacity and technology the most important resource in such wars are Freaks, powerful mages, skilled martial artists and other one-man army individuals.
    Oh yeah you probably don't know about Freaks. Freaks, individuals that have powers that their race shouldn't have and which do not stream from magic. Be it a goblin capable of crating a single drop of water to a human which can turn anything it holds into a weapon that breaks the very laws of IDS.
    Anyways as Freaks, especially those with powerful abilities, are valuable assets but require training the most powerful corporation of the Post-Dimensional Society, as well as a IDS super-power in it's own right, the United Corporation, or UC for short, opened a Freak-training dedicated High School under the name "Saymai Private School" and the care of the Schooling, Education and Upbringing Department (SEUD) of UC which became much more famous as the Boarding School of Freaks or shortly BSoF.
    As years went by and magic, martial arts and other skills caught up with Freaks promising individuals from those (magic, martial arts...) were also allowed to enroll in BSoF. But as time leaped forward mercilessly the old BSoF campus couldn't stand the increase in the amount of potential students and the hard decision to leave the old campus was made by UC's SEUD. Now the first few generations of BSoF students have passed trough the new campus.
    This new campus starts of with a capacity 25,000 students/year, 2.5 times more then the old BSoF's capacity. Further work is also being conduced on increasing the new campus to 100,000 students/year inside the next ten years and then a slow increase to the maximal sustainable campus capacity of 1,000,000 students/year.
    But enough about that. Why doesn't someone a bit more knowledgeable about the new campus tell you all about it. Oh and keep the three prime laws of the IDS in mind:

    1. The IDS is infinite.
    2. Inside the IDS nothing can last forever, nothing is eternal. (Basically everything that is a part of the IDS perishes, eventually [Note that you can make it a really slow perishing.].).
    3. Everything is possible inside the IDS (Yes that includes falling teddy bear nukes or randomly spawning people/monster.).

  • Welcome to the new BSoF Campus!!!
    Guide for Potential Students!!!

    The new BSoF Campus is located on the world of Asperya, a Earth-sized planet orbiting a star very similar to the Sun (trough much younger) at ~0.96 AJ. ~74,5% of the Asperya's surface is covered in water, which makes it not only a bit warmer but also rainier then Earth.
    The Campus's grounds stretch trough the seven islands of the Yariys Island Chain, trough only 2 of said islands are in use at this time.


    The first island in use is the southernmost volcanic Araygos Island. Trough the volcano which dominates the island makes hard to build anything on it, Araygos still was a valuable asset as it allowed two things - a good place for placing one of the 92 Tectonic Stabilizers that stopped Asperya's tectonic movement and a stable place to construct a breakwater and a floating island; the "Karsiz" on which now the dorms, marketplaces and a port are located on. Also during the first and second semester of the next school year the "Karsiz" will be expanded with a state-of-art airport, increased management and safety facilities and finally a custom-build IT, computer, gaming and arcade center.

    nnY8WOt.png


    Located 69 nautical milles north from "Karsiz" the Layis Atoll sits as the third southernmost of the Yariys islands. Being only a 10-20 minute ride by a hydroplane, a 30-40 minute by a ferry cruise or a quick teleportation away from the dorms, the Layis Isle currently hosts the educational part of the Campus - the school administration, the hall, the gym, the sport fields and the four school buildings for the students. Expect for the vital school facilities the atoll also contains a spaceport for the needs of BSoF. The atoll is also the location of "The House", the isolation building for students that break to much non-expulsion rules or are just not able to live in the dorms.



    K3h6k9f.png


    Currently the Campus is able to handle 100,000 students with an average of ~24,500 students in each of the four years. The maximal amount of new students is ~26,500 each year. Currently ~0.5% of all students are not part of the standard program, of which only >0.1% are not part of the Ranking Battles.

    For those not familiar Ranking Battles are fights between students that take place after classes (from 4 pm in the afternoon) or on weekends. Until the new campus was operational the fights were strictly one on one (Duel) or team on team (Brawl) but the new improved monitoring system makes possible not only to start fights from day one but also to introduce a new type of fight.
    This is the Battle Royal in which all teams and individuals can attack anyone except their teammates. Battle Royals will only happen on Saturday or Sunday and will begin at 9 am and last till 9 pm with a two hour break from 1 to 3 pm. A magical function will randomly roll at 7 am each Saturday and Sunday to decide if a Battle Royal is on that day.
    Naturally the rules for Duels and Brawls remain the same - every student or team can send a single challenge each day. A higher ranked student or team can't refuse to fight a lower ranked one if challenged by them. A lower ranked student or team can refuse up to 5 challenges from higher ranked ones each week, with any challenges with more then 10,000 ranks of difference not counting towards this 5 refusals.

  • How to enlist in BSoF (AKA How to make a CS):

    1. Prepare the necessary documents:
    A. A valid ID (Think of a name, surname, place of birth...).

    B. A valid Middle or Elementary School Diploma or a certified proof of having passed the Universal Elementary & Middle School Knowledge Test (Basically come up with a fictional Elementary/Middle School that your character finished or just have them take and pass the above mentioned Test).
    C. A valid document proving your status as a:
    a. rank 4 or higher Freak
    or b. rank 3 or higher Magic User/ Martial Artists/Skill User
    or c. combination of two or more from those: rank 4 Magic User/Martial Artist/Skill User/rank 5 Freak (Basically your character must be able to take on a standard Post-Dimensional Society military starship that is at least a Destroyer. To put in prospective that kind of starship is as powerful as some 5,000,000 Borg Cubes from Star Trek.)

    D. A valid photograph of yourself. (Find me a image to go with your character. Or draw and scan one.)
    E. Valid medical data about yourself. (Height, weight, species/race, gender...)


    2. Take the BSoF enrollment test which consists of:
    A. A basic test of elementary knowledge. (All accepted characters auto-pass this.)

    B. A fight with a rank 3 MagiTech automation. (All accepted characters auto-pass this.)
    C. A interview with a random rank 1 or higher UC Freak/Mage... (You can put a personal motto, agenda or something that your character says often. As with the previous two all accepted characters auto-pass this.)


    3. Fill in the rest of the BSoF enrollment form. (In case I forget something and add it to the form when the actual OOC is made.)

    4. Wait to be called to enter BSoF! (Wait and pray that this interest check succeeds.)

    I recommend taking a look at the example sheets before making a (temp) one.

  • IDS -
    The multiverse setting in which the RP takes place. A infinite multiverse in which anything can happen and inside which nothing lasts forever.


    ODS -
    The areas outside of the IDS are filled with wild, uncontrolled and raging magic. Only a few creatures can survive long in it.


    Dimension
    - The basic building block of the IDS. A Dimension is basically a single Universe, defined by certain physical dimensions, laws of physics and magical principles.


    Post-Dimensional Society
    - The greatest civilization to ever rise in the IDS formed of countless races, nations, corporations and individuals joined together with the wonder of IDS travel.


    IDS Travel
    - Be it by magic, technology or MagiTech/TechnoMag the IDS travel, trough never 100% safe and predictable is what built the Post-Dimensional Society and what keeps it running even today.


    MagiTech/TechnoMag
    - Short for Magically Improved Technology/Technologically Boosted Magic, basically various magic methods of different advancement used to improve technology or technological methods used to help simplify or amplify magic.


    Freak
    - A person which gained non-magical power that it's species shouldn't posses.


    United Corporation
    - The largest, most powerful and most influential IDS corporation. Controlling ~42,4% of all wealth in the IDS UC operates from a planet in a monarchy with strong ties with the owner of the company - the powerful & mysterious mage, skill user and martial artist Traveler know also as the Wizard of Infinite Skills.


    Boarding School of Freaks
    - IDS' first Freak-dedicated school. Famous for it's unique system of ranks and fights between students for those ranks. Due to the need to increase the number of students the school relocated from the old campus to a new one recently.


    Yellow Creatures
    - A weird group of creatures that share an ability to eat massive amounts of things, enjoy massive amounts of alcohol, don't lose mass except if they want so and can even store some of the stuff they eat. The best known of them is Yellow, which gave those creature a name. Yellow is a owner of a massive alcohol business (UC-affiliated) and a bar that whose doors connect to a incredible number of places via dimensional transportation.


    Reconstruction System
    - Complete MagiTech Body Reconstruction and TechnoMag Soul Re-Insertion, is a procedure in which if one were to die a complete revival would be made inside seconds after death at the nearest Restoration Device which is the deceased is contracted for. This is made by using MagiTech to restore one's body as quickly as possible (using information from a Complete Scan) and then use TechoMag to connect the soul of the deceased before it can be collected by the agents of Death. The memories of how one died are also removed from the revived person and kept in case they are needed for any reason.


    Complete Scan
    - Complete Genetic, Quantum and Magical Body Scan, a combination of technological and magical scans that give complete information about one's body. Needed for the Reconstruction System to work (regular update of the Complete Scan data each 5-6 years is recommended. Magic users should do it more often as their magical proprieties change more often.).


    Death
    - The entity in charge of a massive organization in charge of collecting souls and returning them to the Magical Flow.


    Magical Flow
    - The constant stream of magic that circulates trough the IDS and ODS. The source of all souls and where all souls return eventually.

This sounds super interesting. Definitely not gonna overlook this at all. It sparks my interest.

Freaks and all sound awesome, especially their abilities and the infinite possibilities.

PS: Nuclear teddy bears would be amazing.

I do have a question about the rankings. I saw in the example there were letter ranks. So exactly what is the order of rank?

I'm assuming something along the lines of (highest to lowest): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, A, B, C, D, etc.
Not entirely sure though.

Pretty much everything.
Then ranks go from S, 1, 2 ... if letters are used they correspond to a number A would be 1, B would be 2 and so on... since rarely anyone bothers to ranks anyone bellow rank 10 letters from A to J are often used to denote ranks too.

The thing is that the Ranking system for BSoF calculates two things:
- One's current magical power, Freak ability, skill or physical strength (or a combination of those).
- One's probable potential in all of the listed above (just a probable prediction of potential power).
- Those two are taken together and make up the ranking for each ability, power and skill as well as one's overall ranking.

Actually I should probably note that you do not need to write the ranking - I will do that depending on the ability and in discussion with each of the players.

I see. Makes more sense now. Totally aiming to make a character in the Rank 3 area. ` ^` OP is nice.

Any who, I'll keep an eye here. I like the idea, as I stated previously.

Do note that I will limit the number of powerful character at the start, it might be a smart idea to make one or two weaker characters at the start and a stronger one later. Do note that I will also allow year 2 students to be made after a sufficient number of freshman characters is made in the OOC.
