Forword Tired of typical high school drama? Rather worry about rationing your food to last the the rest of the week, how you're going to afford that spiffy sixty dollar text book needed for a lesson that will last two weeks at most, or how you can possibly afford a new round of mags on a college student's budget? Or how about whether or not that demon asshole is going to pay for your window he rudely broke through, if that weird science geek is going to blow up the labs with that suspicious looking death ray look-a-like, or if the girl always staring out the window is going to run off to do Mahou Shoujo no Jutsu? Look no further than Sagecastle Community College! The college advertised for humans but somehow ended up infiltrated by supernatural, magical pricks. Yeah, I see you, you little shit! Stop trying to hypnotize your professor. Power of suggestion my ass, if you didn't earn that A you don't deserve it! Setting Despite the title this will not always be placed at school and when in class don't expect it to be normal. Given that this is a roleplay thinking realisticly in this sort of setting will only kill it. If you ever watched Baka and Test, Okamisan and her Seven Companions (I so encourage drawing inspiration from fairytales and mythology, after all, most are about mortals facing the unnatural), and Angel Beats (it'd be kind of cool to see a secret organisation of goofy conspirists trying to beat the system or something of the like, just with a lot less fire power) then you should have a pretty good idea what I'm trying to do here. Golden Times is an anime I only heard about but apparently it also takes place in college, and Big Hero 6 is the best representation of normal kids becoming extraordinary. If you ever watched them and think they're something worthy of inspiration, go for it! I will also go on to say all supernatural (and the human cast as well) have a class with the sexy blonde headmaster and it starts at ten-thirty AM sharp. This really nothing more than a homeroom everyone can just chill in and be themselves. Have to keep an eye on you lot some way, right? On that note, some teachers may host "extra curricular activities" which may or may not offer an in-depth look in supernatural powers. These are taught in secret and are held at the professor's own desecration. Plot? What Plot? For more than 40 years Sagecastle Community College has been the Sagecastle-area's best choice for high quality, affordable, fully accredited, and transferable education. No matter where you want to go, Sagecastle Community College can help you get there. It doesn't matter if your plan is to take classes at SCC and transfer to a four-year university or enter one of our career programs designed to get you into the workforce right away. We have what you are looking for. Sagecastle offers no more than two years of on campus education and costs a meager fee of $3,131, just over one-third of the cost for a year at a four-year public institution. We don't offer boarding, so find your own place to crash you freeloaders. Ever heard of a roommate wanted ad? ONLINE CLASSES You have a busy lifestyle. Fit your class schedule around work and family responsibilities. Or maybe you decided not to bother the old headmaster with your stupid abra-cadabra stuff and want to chill at home for a while. That works too. CAREER SERVICES We provide career assessment and counseling that leads individuals to effective career management. Unfortunately, we're not qualified to counsel nut jobs so please refrain from enrolling if you're not completely right in the head. FINANCIAL AID Financial aid for those who qualify, from all available resources, including grants, loans and scholarships. Or, you know, get a job! And no magicking yourself into classes either. I'm on to you, nitwits! RUNNING START PROGRAM Running Start is a program that allows 11th and 12th grade students to take college courses at Sagecastle Community College. Students earn both high school and college credits for these courses. Running Start students and their families do not pay tuition, but they do pay mandatory fees, buy their own books, and provide their own transportation. Students receive both high school and college credit for these classes, thus accelerating their progress through the education system. Running Start offers students the opportunity to earn up to thirty college credits by graduation and send them well on their way of earning their desired degrees. Rules and Regulations Since apparently pulling a surprise background assessment is discrimination or some stupid shit like that (it's also a lot of work) I've been forced to rewrite the student handbook, which may or may not contain magical enchantments to deter the innocent eye of mortals (not because I was forced to by my secretary or anything). You are forwarned, supernatural assholes, you only get one chance - apparently the school board of education didn't agree with that and insisted I must distribute punishment fairly - three chances to blend in with the rest of human society. Seriously, if I wanted to babysit high schoolers and deal with troubled teens who act out via their powers I would be doing just that! Act your age! NO NON-OC'S Using a fan-made character for an already established series is acceptable. What is not acceptable is kidnapping a poor, innocent, not to mention already owned, character from their universe and forcing them to be your meat puppet. Seriously, why is there not a universe law against this?! NO GODMODDING Seriously, who finds it fun to stumble across level 9000 powers and abuse them just to look cool? It takes the whole point out of roleplaying to begin with! For the sake of everyone's sanity, allow your character to get hit, injure, allow time for others to react, and leave out any and all instant incapacitates/kills. Another form of godmodding is taking out of character information and/or information provided in the narrative (i.e. information your character can't possibly know) and utilizing it in your in character post. Example: John: He could feel the knife in his back pocket. Jack: "Don't bother with your silly little knife." Jack couldn't possibly have known John had that knife in the actual game, but only because John put it in his post in a way that it wasn't revealed to Jack. NO POWERPLAYING Powerplaying, or the art of controlling another character and abusing said character to make your own look cool, is a blatant disregard for the rules and shows the up most disrespect for those you are playing with. Do not do this without express permission from the player. The only other exception is collaborative story telling and game master posts, which I will write if I feel the explicit need to intervene. RATED PG-13 Sexual content should be near non-existent. I say near because it can still be implied while forgoing explicit detail. Let's face it, awkward morning-afters are fun to read when done right especially if the participants were drunk. Just be aware not everyone wants to read such material nor mature enough for it. WRITING EXPECTATIONS Give me more than two sentences that progresses a scene and I'll be content. INFLUENCE This game is a supernatural slice of life, much like S.O.S Brigade and Durarara! feel free to draw inspiration from such animes/manga/and other similar medias. DIVERSITY Want to be runaway royalty from another relm? A magic girl secretly fighting aliens? A demon summoned from the ether with nothing better to do than take notes in history class? Maybe a normal human being with s flare for science and failed experiments? Go for it! Just keep in mind there are consequences for your actions and your character could possibly be billed/suspended/expelled/arrested for any damage property, sexual harassment charges, or stolen goods. RESERVATION If you're going to reserve a spot, please use that very same post to post your character sheet and tag it @Noctis the Devious. Otherwise just post when ever you get the chance. I doubt there'll be a need for me to close sign ups anyway. I might as well go on to say you can play as many characters as you can handle but please make a seperate post for each one. Fight! For the fun of it I'm implementing a dice system! This system will be implementing two ten faced dice, or one-hundred faced if you're using the chat box, so results will be out of a hundred. If you don't know how to use Iwaku's dice system: simply post your reply and then click "more options" down in the bottom right hand corner near the edit button. Then choose "throw dice". You don't have to use the dice though, and if you do, you don't have to use it just for deciding whether or not you hit or miss or predict or dodge or whether or not you actually smash through that window like James-fucking-Bond. Just use your imagination and have fun with it (but using dice to tell whether or not your kiss is successful would be humorous). 0-59 = F: The action you attempted ended in complete and utter failure. At this point, you should roll again to see the chances of the ground opening up to swallow you whole. 60-69 = D: Not much better but at least you managed to leave somewhat of an impression... 70-79 = C: Hey, your attempt turned out half way decent. You should be proud! Too bad you didn't entirely succeed. 80-89 = B: Would you look at that, you accomplished your goal! And without overkilling it or using flashy effects. Good for you. 90-100 = A: Instant effect! Not only did your efforts reap fruitful results, but came with it's own light show and pointless explosions! Registration You don't actually have to completely fill out your character sheet to be accepted. But at least have your name, age, general personality, and race/species specified. The rest can come later. Though, knowing your character's gender and role may come in handy. Name: [Please remove any and all brackets from the sheet. Use quotations for nicknames]. Alias: [This is the name you go by if you're supernatural and your birthname will be a dead give away. This will also be the name you go by if you're out fighting crime or have a handler. Optional. If applicable.] Age: [Sixteen is the youngest you can go] Grade: [If applicable] Race/Species: [Any thing you can think of that resembles a living life form (robots from the future included). I'll even allow familiars]. Powers/Affinity: [If applicable] Alignment: [Good? Bad? Neutal? Anti-hero? Optional] Role: [What stereotype are you? The badass with a soft spot? Or the gentle, caring soul who loves animals? Whatever you are, please avoid duplicating a role already in play.] Gender: [If applicable] Sexuality: [If applicable] Appearance: [if including a picture, please post it at the top of your sheet, but you must include a written description. Contrary to popular belief, a picture won't always tell your partners how you want their characters to view yours.] Personality Summary: [Please don't all of you be awkward, shy ducks afraid to approach others and start a conversation. Character interactions make roleplays go around and if there are none to be had then the roleplay meets an early demise; that and it's unfair to the social butterflies they tend to out number.] Likes: [Optional] Dislikes: [Optional] Ambitions: [Optional] Fears: [Optional] Quirks: [Optional] Flaws: [Optional] Biography Summary: [Optional] Relationships: [Rivalries, friends, enemies, frienemies, crushes, love interest, spouse, the works. Also optional] Romantically Available: [Optional. If applicable] Roommate: [Optional. If applicable] Residence: [Describe your home, in case someone comes to visit. You may even end up living in the same apartment building as someone else. Also optional] Employment: [Optional] Skills: [Twenty points to spend if human student, twenty-five to spend if non-human, thirty to spend if human staff and thirty-five to spend if non-human staff. You dan't have to spend all your points or fill out all criteria, and this is also optional. If you end up filling this out and use the dice, you can add the points from one relevant skill attribute on to your total if you roll anything below 70.] Athletic: [Think in terms of physical efficiency and attack. Also determines stamina.] Defense: [How good is your character at forming a verbal come back or defending themselves against an attacker.] Speed: [Includes dodging and getting to school on time.] Agility: [Flexibility and ninja ability.] Health: [How long you last in battle. Note: hitting zero doesn't mean you die or got seriously injured. You just lost. This also determines how acceptable you are to sickness and your resilience; the ability to bounce back from setbacks or injury and the like.] Charisma: [How well you handle social situations, charm your way into getting that A, and how prone you are to the infamous noes bleeds] Intelligence: [Book smart? Street Smart? Common Sense? This could mean anything. It also decides how well you defend against mental attacks and whether or not you pass that test.] Magic attack: [Your efficiency in using spells and supernatural attack, including super strength/speed/et cetera] Rooster Since I'm not focusing on the politics behind running a school and the various employees, I'm only going to focus on three semi-major important positions: headmaster, secretary, and professors, of which I'll allow three to five, but I would suggest doubling if you're going to play one of these. "Other" are reoccurring Non-Player Characters. These can be anything from classmates to teachers to employers, ex cetera. You don't have to make a sheet for them, you just to mention them somewhere or make them appear in-character ten times. FACULTY Uyehara, Hideaki "Hide" - I've been told I'm quite vulgar and offensive, but some people like learning the hard way. Some even speculate I have more power than I let on. I'll let you be the judge of that. Honestly, I'm just the hot headmaster everyone wants a piece of. STUDENTS Holland Tiämät - The strong, silent type whom mainly sticks to the shadows until provoked. Cambion - Our token androgynous character and local yankee... for the time being. Yamamoto, Nozomi - She's a highly intelligent NEET who is always learning more as we speak. Her high IQ is difficult to rival, and she wants to keep it that way. George Karyu - "Well, I guess you can say I'm a wannabe criminal with a failure in evil." Bridget "Birdie" Sasamas - That weird goth girl whom creeps everyone out, but whom everyone goes to, to sate their apple juice craving. OTHER Dorofei "Fei" Samaras - Birdie's older cousin.
