Highstone Academy: Adventurer's School

Highstone Academy
The winds of adventure will take us where we need to go.

Above a desert that was once a forest, burnt to ashes by the rampage of a fiery abomination, there flies an island... lush with green, and easily identified by the gray stone castle resting upon it, as well as the small town to the side of it. The town is known as Spicegale Village, and it houses a multitude of races from all around the world, even from across planar barriers. The keep is the focus of the flying island, however: the strange adventurer's school referred to as the Highstone Academy.

Long ago, the current Dean and his adventuring party came across the school in their travels. The site had long been abandoned, but the floating city and keep were enough to stay in the man's memory. The party would come to use it as a base of operations, and used it as their final stand against an otherworldly threat: the gouges of that battle still mar the surface of the island, and the fallen corpses of the infernal machines can be seen far on the desert ground below.

Inverse to the land below, the island is temperate, the surface is covered in great grassy hills, an expansive forest, and an impressive lake, filled from the side with a portal from the Elemental Chaos. In fact, the entire island is dotted with portals to the various planes: save for a few, these portals seem to be one-way, letting creatures onto the island: but not back off of it...

The underside of the island, however, is not as ideal as the surface. The winding tunnels of the continent-sized island are filled with various other environments: The deepest of which being a varied labyrinth of molten lava which drips into the desert below, fed by some unworldly, bound being...

Worried about what might lie ahead, the Dean has set up his adventurer's school in order to train a new generation of improved adventurers, taking youths and molding them into far more powerful individuals than they would be on their own, or adventuring normally. Providing various tests and awarding them with gold earned from his own years of adventuring, his system is one of the most vaunted in the world - at least, among those that know of him...

You are a student in this academy. What happens next, of course, is up to you...

Special Rules:
You must be a young character.
The point buy is 22, 100 starting gold.
For this roleplay, I will be lax on character concepts. Any book, any race can be used. You may even run by homebrew or special races and feats... feel free to get creative!

There are three special ways to play in this RP.
This is the standard mode of play, and will take place in the IC thread. Your character will use their powers, skills, and equipment to complete whatever objective given to you by The Dean. Cooperation with your allies will be key. Whether you win or lose, you will earn experience points and gold, as well as a grade on your performance!

Free Time
At any time, you may interact with your fellow players (or anyone else wanting to join in!) within the Roleplay tab in the Cbox. There are no rules to what you can do in this game (though if you pick up items in the Free Time, you can't use them in the Testing period, unless I feel you've earned them). Adventure, explore the island, and interact with your classmates! Provide proof that you did this by posting the Logs in this OOC thread, and you'll earn 250 experience points for every two players!

Besides what I have mentioned above, I will not be providing a lot of detail into the world. YOU, however, can do this. By writing a 'report', in-character, for one of your character's classes (most of which will be off-screen and up to you), will earn you 50 gold times your level per report, twice a week (real time). Thus, if you do this right off the bat, you can double your starting gold. The world is massive, with many different societies, plants, cultures, and races - don't be afraid to get creative!

That's all the basic information. The post after this one will provide homebrew, "added" information from homework, and a cast of characters.

Sir Basil

Original poster
Name: Nori
Age: 15
Sex: Male
Alignment: Unaligned (Leans to Law)
Has black hair that appears reddish in some light. He has dusky skin, and high cheekbones. He has a scar on his right cheek and one on his lip. His mouth is usually set in a line, and his dark-brown eyes are narrowed. He wears black-chainmail under a brown-red tunic and leggings and a thick red cloak. In his fox form (which he rarely ever uses), he's a dark brown with flecks of black on his back.

Personality: Less patient (or as some would say, lazy) than his brother, Nori tends to be hot-headed and prone to random fits of anger or gloominess. People find him to be serious and grim - and very intense.When confronted with a moral problem or question, he tends to avoid it, rather than answer it. He doesn't like revealing what side he stands on. He rarely feels like he fits in, but is more comfortable amongst humans in the prime material then in the company of his fellow fey. He is quiet and secretive - some consider him to be untrustworthy.

The eldest of a set of twins, Nori beat his brother to life by five seconds. But those five seconds made all the difference. Nori was well aware of the difference between himself and his brother - his brother was gentle and soft spoken, he was rash and violent, his brother was successful at everything, Nori rarely did, and where his brother was fair and sunny, he was darker and stormier. It was obvious that his brother, Kyu, was the favourite of his parents, and though Nori didn't resent him for that, he did feel very jealous of his brother, wanting more than anything to be as successful as he was. Unfortunately, fey society looked down on Nori's behaviour, his lack of spontaneity, and his habit of getting into dark and gloomy moods.

On an expedition through the Feywild, (Nori was prone to taking long walks alone) Nori came across a library. A library sitting there, in the middle of nowhere. This was hardly surprising, the Feywild was prone to generating things whenever it felt like it. Nori entered it, and found that it was full of old books and lost rituals, which were filled with a sort of magic and method for garnering magic that he never thought plausible; magic that was stolen from the forces of Hell. The kitsune hated Hell as much as any fey and had often been jealous of his brother's proficiency with magic - Nori had trouble mastering the simplest of cantrips. Here was an opportunity to take power from directly under Hell's nose - perhaps weaken them - and have skill in magic that Kyu would be in awe at. Nori took the most comprehensive book he could, and returned home.

With some assistance from his brother, Nori completed the rituals, earning himself the powers of Hell. He almost immediately began to feel sick, or like he had been tricked. He felt a great sense of uneasiness, but managed to conjure his first weapon; a long, broad Blade of Annihilation. The effort of conjuring it exhausted him, but he attempted practicing with the sword on dummies made of twigs and flour sacks. The sword often struck on its own accord and once even drew blood from its master, giving Nori the scar on his lip. Eventually, he was able to wrestle his unruly sword into submission. His power frightened him, and he cursed making the pact in the first place. He confessed this to his brother, and then, his parents. They rejected their son, and accused him of being as wicked as the origin of his magic was. He left, with his loyal Kyu at his side, and crossed into The Prime Material.

In the prime material, Nori found that he had a great admiration for humans, enjoying the relative freedom of their lives and their fairness. Rumours came to him of an adventuring school called 'Highstone', and he felt like he could get a better grip on his magic and on his life if he went there and trained. He begged Kyu to come with him, and there they ended up.

Unlike Kyu, Nori works exceedingly hard in his classes, though his success is often minimal to average. He has been lectured several times for violence against other pupils and for malicious behaviour. Most of these claims have truth in them, for Nori is prone to causing trouble. Not because he wants to, but because that's just who he is.

Bound to the samurai principals of the bushido yet inheriting his mother's free spirit Takahiro is willing to interpret the letter of the law in unconventional ways so long as the spirit behind them remains intact. The counterpoint between his parent's personalities yet still berry much his own person to upholds the principals of both clans as best he can.

Takahiro loves a good joke and growing up in the country has left him naive in some ways but parallel to the softer side is the stubbornness inherited from both his parents.

When a lordless Lion samurai married a Unicorn he because a part of her family and the two retired to a quiet village far from the ever more improbable stories of their adventure that spoiled a plot to infiltrate and overthrow the empire. Having chosen a life away from pressure and wild stories for the child Ryoko carried their conflicting personalities mellowed under the absence of stress and they were able to make a functional family.

Takahiro received wildly different tutelage from each parent, the rigorous and strict instruction from Kiyoshi and the more improvising and flexible bouts with Ryoko eventually were combined into his own distinctive style and he fights as well on foot as he does on horseback.

Even in the country his father made sure to teach him the works of Akodo and would spend hours reading passages to Takahiro and telling him different ways they could be interpreted while Ryoko watched, this continued for the young samurai until his cooing of age.

It was a quiet evening in the Moto household as Takahiro mulled over his decision in him mind, and to his surprise when he announced he was going on a journey with no destination neither parent was shocked. It because apparent they had already discussed it among themselves as they exchanged significant looks and Kiyoshi led Takahiro to a room he had never been into before. On a stand in a place of honor was a Daisho, ancient and revered as a relic for many generations, and now his to bear.

Promising his younger sister he'd return soon with something "exciting and exotic" for her he set off to prove himself in the world.

Kestrel? The half-halfling half-harpy race? I'm sure I could whip that up fairly well...

Age: 15
Sex: Male
Alignment: Unaligned
Appearance: Kyu is immediately identified by his calm, kind eyes. Opposite to his brother, the fox-man is relaxed and steady no matter his form, which changes on a whim. In any form, his red hair is streaked nigh-randomly with other, very natural colors. His calm expression and smile give him a "sweet" expression, though the perceptive can see the shimmer of a trickster hiding in the man's form. Sparks of various magics travel over bare bits of skin, hinting at the teenager's barely restrained talent for magic.

Personality: It would not be a surprise to hear that Kyu is failing most of his classes. He skips class often, moving into the fields, hills and forests around the campus to smoke and read a book. He's not anti-social: in fact, he's one of the more open and kind individuals on campus. He's just not really enthralled by adventuring. He's highly supportive, and is only really at the school out of love for his elder brother Nori. He's a horrible combatant, and avoid or smooths over confrontation... He's actually extremely bright, and when he puts his mind to an action, he succeeds. The hard part is getting him to that point.

History: The youngest of two twins, Kyu was the favorite of his parents. His infancy was notable in his demeanor: Kyu was not a fussy child. He never cried, never had a tantrum, and was considered by many to be a blessing of a child: the power of a fey, without the attitude. He loved his family and his brother more than anything, though his voracious accumulation of knowledge was a close second. It seemed anything he did he succeeded at...
...So he stopped doing things. It was no longer any fun to him. His tricks, his life... things began to slow down, melancholy overtaking him for the first time. It was a long depression that led him to the comfort of his eldest twin, Nori. Nori had a different sort of problems... and so Kyu committed himself to helping his brother.
Even after Nori completed the rituals, stealing his power from Hell and earning him the ire of his parents, Kyu stayed with him. The entire blame was placed on Nori, though Kyu's magic was equally at fault. The two left their home in the Feywild, brothers - Kyu had no intention to abandon Nori. Nori's path led him to the Highstone Academy... it wasn't really Kyu's thing, but he would stay with Nori anyway.
After all, he loves his brother very much.

Sweet, Archy. We're missing a full Leader type. Kyu's a hybrid bard, though that only gives us a little healing.

For being in Free Time RP's, Takahiro and Kyu are at 500xp. Nori is at 250xp.

Kestrel will be up later today.

Well, going for Human and Crab Clan. Probably gonna use that tactical warlord build I had for miniboss, though I may instead go for some kind of cleric.

The Resourceful Star is here to take names and kick ass.

Name: Kari
Age: 14
Sex: Female
Alignment: Unaligned
Kari would be tall for a halfling her age, at four feet even. Signs indicate that she's stopped growing, though, so she'd be best described as "petite" for a Kestrel. Her back-length hair is a rusty-red that matches her feathers and she keeps it in a ponytail. She'd braid it, but she doesn't know how.

Her light build is exagerrated by the fact that she is unhealthily thin; she's getting closer to a healthy weight, but it's painfully obvious she is used to not eating. Her ankles and wrists are ringed by manacle scars, and she has calluses on the back of her neck and her collarbones that could only have come from a collar. Solid iron rings are set in her wings, circling the "wrist" joint.

Kari is...damaged. She exhibits the typical Kestrel chipper attitude, though it tends to seem forced and she's prone to breakdowns that go above and beyond the normal mood swings. She is mistrusting of other people and skittish - though she tries to hide it - but her flocking instinct drives her to seek out people anyways.

Kari's mother, rather than killing her at birth as harpies usually do female Kestrels, kept her around to use as a brood mare. Abused both emotionally and physically almost from birth onward, she was held in chains beginning at nine years old. She's been running from her mother's flight since her twin brother, Ravv, helped her escape just under a year ago.
[Additional details will be sent to Frost, as the GM, in a PM. Kari's not talking, so they won't become common knowledge unless and until they come up during play.]

Forthcoming, pending Kestrel racial stats

Yeep, I'ma gonna go for a Sun Warpriest build. Not quite as crazy tactical as the int-focused warlord, but I think I can still make it work with a girl who's a good but lazy strategist.

Added the stats! Thank you Frost, Vay, and Ric!

Name: Rain
Level: 1
Age: 18
Sex: Female
Alignment: Unaligned
Appearance: Rain is a Razorclaw Shifter. She's 5'6" and weighs about 130 lbs, basically resembling a human with tiger features. She has a wide, flat nose, large yellow-green eyes, pointed ears and long sideburns. She has a tail that measures about two feet long. Like others of her race, she likes to move in a crouched posture, springing and leaping along the ground.
Personality: She's not the smartest student in the class and her way of meeting people is pouncing on them. She thinks of things in terms of hunter and prey and is naturally curious but will exercise caution in areas that "don't feel right." She's a friendly individual who prefers the outside and is wary of closed spaces.
History: Rain never knew her true family and was raised by an elven Seeker alongside her biological daughter. They lived in a forest although Rain often woke up late for lessons. She was always too busy staring up at the sky at night. She knew she wanted to become a Seeker for as long as she could remember and was leaning toward forming a Spiritbond.

On the night of her fifteenth birthday, orcs suddenly appeared and burnt the forest to the ground. Rain's adopted family were killed in front of her eyes. She barely escaped. She returned to find their bodies and out of grief, she made a Bloodbond instead. She received amnesia soon after and began recreating her past. She remembers being a Seeker and having a family but she's certain she's a Spiritbond Seeker who left them to travel out on her own.

However, the voices in her head calling for blood and vengeance are making her think otherwise ...

While Takahiro was talking to rain over a meal the subject of family came up. Rain began to break down so Takahiro broke out the sake to perform a toast, then another. Hope the scene will be continued... I have plans to his behaviour if/when he gets sloshed.

NAME: Harper
AGE: 18
RACE: Half-Elf
CLASS: Druid, Lvl. 1
ALIGNMENT: Unaligned

PERSONALITY: Harper is a calm, contemplative student, commonly found in the gardens and forests of the academy where he feels most at home. He comes across as well-mannered individual to those who get to know him, though he is passionate about the defence of the natural world and the destruction of those who would harm it.

Harper is a child of the wilds; born and raised in a small community of druids living deep within the forests of the world. From an early age he was raised to know the ways of nature and trained to defend it from those who would seek to destroy it.

As part of a deal made with one of the teachers at Highstone Academy, the druids send one of their children a year to be trained as adventurers. Harper is the latest to be chosen, and has recently arrived at the Academy. He's a little out of his depth, having grown up in the forests of the surface, but is slowly settling in.
