That's right, kiddos! This is a marching band rp! So grab your reeds, drum pads, and dot books, because this is going to be a long road to championships. East Salem High School – North Carolina Home of the Dragons School Colors: Red, gold and black Marching Show: unannounced Marching Dragons Sections (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Sections (open) Sections (close) 2 Drum Majors *1 slot left Colorguard (1 soloist) Percussion: front ensemble and battery Woodwinds: saxophone, clarinet, flute, piccolo Brass: Trumpet, tuba, mellophone, baritone 1 section leader per section This RP has the use of NPCs. Basically characters that no one in particular plays, but they are there for the sake of story. If you wish to add another npc, just create a bio for them and we'll see what we can work out. NPCs (Move your mouse to reveal the content) NPCs (open) NPCs (close) Band Director: Jeff McSanders (Sanders) – Somewhat uptight, but a dry sense of humor. He tends to prefer the students be tidy and is always asking them to pick up after themselves and DO NOT EAT IN THE BANDROOM. In terms of what he is planning for the show, he tends to be secretive. Other than that, he doesn’t really care for the drama that goes on between the students and will only intervene when their membership in the band is jeopardized. He is nice when he needs to be, otherwise he is quiet and to himself. He can’t handle students crying very well, however. He doesn't know how to handle it and always ends up treating them like a baby. Assistant Director: Michel Keller (Keller) – Super laidback and will talk to students about almost anything. He likes to gossip about what’s going on with the students in terms of drama and will more often be found coaching the brass instruments. He absolutely will not talk to any of the students about his love life or the fact that Maddie swears she has seen him on a dinner date with a young man… more than once. Front Ensemble Tech: Maddison Jenkins (Maddie) – Super giggly and had a merciless love for pudding. She just graduated from college and sometimes you can find her working downtown at the Starbucks. She adores gossip, but pretends she doesn’t because she has this thing that she says a lot “I need to act professional”, even though she doesn’t at all. Battery Percussion Tech: Miguel Bengali (Mic) – Probably the chillest dude you’ll meet in the band. He doesn’t really care for drama or gossip, but he loves to play cards. He’s not supposed to gamble, but no one tells Sanders about what he does or doesn’t do. Winds Tech: Joseph Borne (Joe) – One of the most uptight people you will meet in terms of being punctual and at every single practice, volunteer opportunity, and fundraiser. This man lives, breathes, and bleeds band. He is really funny and cool otherwise, but if you have a sore throat, you’d be better off going to Keller. Just to give us an idea on what the characters are up against and the amount of pressure on them, here is a schedule. Please use this to your advantage.

As long as it’s gossip, they can’t interfere. If they find you in action, it won’t be good. If you aren't sure how something works in a marching band, feel free to ask. We have veterans here as well as rookies alike, so don't get nervous or shut down. You're allowed to curse, just not around the staff. Please try to post at least once a week at minimum.
