In Renaissance Italy all was not as it seemed. There was an increase in the amount of supernatural species and the children of these species if taught properly could learn to blend in with society and live their lives how they saw fit. Most of these troubled children/teens were sent to a school in the middle of Italy. It was located in a huge forest in a place that was only shared with the student once they were enrolled to the school. The school took in any supernatural that were having problems and had scouts that were constantly on the lookout for new students. Students could stay for as long as they wanted and when they wanted to leave they needed to go through a long vigorous test that proved that they could control their powers and proved themselves ready to be unleashed on the world. The school would seem like a normal mansion to anyone who saw it, but on the inside it was a beautiful palace focused on mastering the arts that was special to each race. As you walk up the stairs and through the two story doors there was a large entry way with a grand staircase. On the main floor was the ballroom and dining hall which was the area where students gathered once a week with the headmistress to have a lecture and where they also held the weekly ball, which is a way for students to interact with each other outside of classes. Also on the bottom floor was a large gymnasium, where students took part in athletics classes to stay in shape, but also self-defense classes because being a supernatural is never a cake walk. On the second floor there are 11 medium sized classrooms. There are classes based on each race as well as for general classes because all education is essential to survival, especially etiquette classes. Each classroom had it's own quirks and decoration but they were all layed out the same way, a couple of tables and chairs and an area for one of the professors to be at the center of attention. There were different accessories for each room based on what class was being held. As we head up the stairs to the third floor this is where the bedrooms are. Half of the floor was for girls and the other have was for boys. Each room had space for at least 4 people but was split up into groups of two or three and some were even unlucky enough to get their own rooms. Each student got their own queen sized bed and armoire for their clothing. They could provide whatever they wanted to make their room personal and there is a separate bathing area in each room so the students do not have to share with anyone other than their roommate. There is a basement to the building as well and it holds a huge library. The staff housing and kitchens, where off of the ballroom on the main floor in a separate building that was attached by a large short hallway. This area is where some of the students either chose to work or got sent to work as punishments. CHARACTER SHEET! Character Name : Age : Race and Power : Appearance : Personality : Background/Reason for coming to the school: Character name I’ll be really lenient about whatever you guys feel you want is good for me get creative though, I don’t really want any plain names since it is a supernatural setting. Age can be anywhere from 10 to 20; We’ll say that is the general puberty age grouping for most of the races. IF you want to be a professor at the school we can talk about it cause I think it would be an interesting idea as well. Or if someone wants to be a parent of another student or a relative of a student. Couples are allowed as well. Race and Power; I am allowing any race of supernatural as long as you can have some sort of power or a group of powers that are out of control then it is fine with me. Appearance speaks for itself. I would like to stick with a renaissance Italian theme for dress but we don’t have to if people would prefer it to be a modern thing am open to more ideas. Personality is basically so we can all kind of have an idea of who your character is and what drives them. Background/Reason is important because it will be the main problem that your character is trying to overcome, and will affect how your character is known as well. If you want to keep it vague and elaborate in the actual roleplay that works as well. I would really like anywhere from 5-10 people for this group…is that too many or not enough in everyones opinion? I don’t want it to get too cluttered but at the same time, it is a school so there should be a wide variety. I was thinking if anyone wants to we could create a skype group for this roleplay, or we can keep it on here it's really up to everyone, I could create a poll or someone could just answer me. Skype or forum? I also would like if you join that you are active for the most part, at least once a day would be wonderful even though I know it is going to be hard for those of us with a busy schedule. I also might want someone else to help me run this since it is my first time actually group role-playing.
