~Open for Sign Ups~ All across the globe, and even in regions neighboring our earth or even our dimension, the supernatural lurk, their very existence a secret from most of the overwhelmingly large human population. Many of these beasts, these superhuman and fae walk among the streets of mankind, their species having learned over time how to take human form. Some are peaceful, some are violently carnivorous, while other beings remain entirely neutral. You can find creatures of a variety of alignments, shapes, and sizes at the grand old Nefastus Lupata Academy. The massive grounds of NLA's campus float through the clouds, hidden in plain sight via enchantments. The Academy is the home to hundreds of supernatural beings, where they are free to flaunt their powers and give in to their true natures without fear of having to hide from the oblivious human masses below. This is not to say there isn't plenty else to be afraid of in the great halls of the Academy, for almost every species gets a free ride, even the ruthless, the criminally insane, and the blood thirsty. Students are free to wander to their heart's content, and have access to the school's wide variety of services and entertainment, but while you'll have plenty of free time, you'll find the grounds are constantly flooded with chaos galore! Prepare to have to fight for your life, to get wild, meet friend and foe alike and explore! Welcome to Nefastus Lupata Academy! School Features Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler +Naturally, being a school, MLA does have a number of classes for students to attend whenever they desire. However, unless instructed otherwise, none of these classes are mandatory. Really, NLA is more of an embassy for multiple species to be able to live out of hiding and meet other supernatural beings, really +The Scholarship is a tradition at NLA, and has been in effect since it's establishment, records say. The Scholarship comes in the form of a black letter written in platinum ink. These letters are sent out to 13 random humans every semester, whether they are aware of the supernatural or completely unsuspecting. Should they agree to the invitation to come to this mysterious academy of prestige, they will be escorted onto campus, by whatever supernatural means the current staff decides to retrieve them with. This keeps humans, who are otherwise typically fairly supernaturally inept, in the school population. +The school is under new management, with the arrival of Headmaster Root +This year, a new store has opened up on the second floor. Cloud Cuckoo sells a wide assortment of magical wears, mostly for the convenience of living at the academy. Translators, disguising amulets, magical maps and many other enchanted and occasionally cursed items can be bought there. +The Academy has 5 floors, which include classrooms, an enormous library with millions of books of all kinds, a infirmary, 2 pools, 8 different gardens, a ice cream stand, a bar, a movie theater, a gymnasium, a cafeteria, and many other useful and/or bizarre facilities. Also, there are 300 dorm rooms, located on floors 3, 4 and 5 of the West Wing. Your dorm room is randomly assigned to you upon arriving at the school and getting your NLA starter kit. All dorms are built for 2 and are co-ed. Only staff members get to choose if they want a roommate and who they want to share a dorm with. +The school grounds are enchanted, so if you stand out in the yard you will not feel the campus moving. The grounds are susceptible to whatever weather the school is caught in, however. The inside of the academy is always unaffected. +The school will very often change locations, and from time to time, it will stop and just float over one particular place. During this time, students and staff are welcome to explore the earth below, as long as they can get back into the school alright. About Us Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler Welcome to the return of Nefastus Lupata Academy, the Iwaku Roleplay installment of the extraordinary Tenshi Jigoku Academy series. My name is Cheshire, though you can call me....pretty much whatever suits you. My username varies even more than my actual name, so I'm sure I'll be called all sorts of stuff. You can also refer to me by whatever pronouns you wish, but I typically prefer "It", "they"....gender neutral stuff like that. As I'm sure you've already figured out, I am the GM of this fine establishment, accompanied by my Co-GMs, Pino and Kaga, and the many veteran members that will be rejoining us. So a little info about this particular RP; We started on RPGuild, but immigrated here after it crashed, because frankly it was kind of saddening that we had lost all our history and the new site design kind of blows. We decided to start of fresh, and so, in a way, the current installment of TJA is an AU to the old TJAs. What does that mean? It means while we will have characters returning from the old threads, for many this will be a fresh start, and it will make it easy for new players to get involved with the story! Now, we're all adults here, or at the very least we can act like them. TJA has always been a pretty mature RP....and by that I don't mean it's a sex RP. Sex scenes still have to go into PMs. However, we do allow things like swearing, fanservice, dark subject matters, violence and gore, etc. Some of the things in this RP can be triggering to some, so I wouldn't recommend jumping on board unless you can handle some adult themes. So, as long as your CS is acceptable, feel free to get as real and raunchy as you want, but do remember once the shaft is hoisted, it's time to take it elsewhere. In conclusion, prepare to expect a little bit of everything in our RP. And feel free to use the OOC as a member lounge of sorts, as we're the type to just hang out together while we're waiting for a post. As long as you can type well, have an original character and seem to be able to bring something to the story, you'll be welcome to the TJA/NLA family/guild/whatever. And if you have any questions or want help with anything, and I do mean just about anything, don't be shy and feel free to PM me! Rules Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler +Unless you are a returning character, your CS must be approved by the GM or one of the Co-GMs before you can enter the IC +You can ask to make a staff member, as long as the position you ask for is not taken. There are certain jobs that have multiple positions open, such as maids, chefs, nurses, etc. +Sex must be kept in PMs +Usually the player gets to decide when a character gets killed, but if you powerplay or godmod, your character's life is forfeit +Don't post OOC in the IC.

If you've been here for 6 weeks, you may have 8. +You must follow the guidelines of an already used race as according to the race's ambassador and/or race sheet. If you are the first to use that race or come up with your own race, you become the ambassador of that race and will have to fill out a race sheet yourself eventually +Original Characters only.
