High School settings are one of THE most popular roleplay settings! And you rarely ever see more about these settings than "it's a school". Which is a shame, because a little bit of flavor can go a long way in creating atmosphere for your roleplay and development for the characters. In this exercise you are going to be designing a unique High School! What is the NAME of your school? Schools are named after towns, famous people, the streets they're on, founders, etc. Choosing a significant name for your school could add something really interesting to the place. Is the a Public School or a Private School? This is important because it tells you what kind of students and teachers you'll have. Public schools tend to have students from all social classes. Private schools will have wealthy students or scholarship students. What is the school MASCOT? Are they the Panthers, Bulldogs, Satyrs, Trojans? You can go with classic common mascots, or you can do something really unique and meaningful for your town or roleplay. What sports teams does the school have? Not all schools have the same kind of teams, whether it be because of funding or because of the local culture. Northern schools might have a Hockey team, while schools in the south will have swimming teams. Some schools can only afford one well funding sports team, while others have several. What clubs does the school have? Drama club, glee club, chess club, art club, movie club. You can have ANY kind of club! They can be official, sponsored by the school clubs, or they can be something the students themselves organized. Is it a popular club? A crappy club? Are there competitions or is it just for fun? What does the school EXCEL at? Most schools have one thing that they're known for, that makes people want to go to that school. Is it a badass sports team? Do they create the best actors in the country? Genius mathalethes? Superb teachers? Hot models? If they are not good at anything currently, were they famous for something in the past? What is TERRIBLE at this school? Do they get no funding? Awful sports? No clubs? Lacking enough teachers? Are desks falling apart? There's bound to be one thing at the school that really sucks. What sort of special events does the school host every year? Prom and Homecoming are obvious staples of school life. But what OTHER events does the school hold? Do they have something even more special as a tradition? What are the features of the school building and campus grounds? Multiple floors? Special lunchrooms? Rooms for Orchestra? A theater? Give a basic run down of the halls and architecture like you are right a map. Am I forgetting something that is important about schools? ADD IT IN!
