Sign Ups for the First Year are underway! Welcome, young one... may you live in.... interesting times. Introduction Take a seat, stranger, and let me tell you about some of the mysterious horrors young Highschoolers will experience this coming spring... the spring of the year 2046. Those young ones, innocent and eager, will be enrolled in the most technologically advanced school in Japan, if not the world, and will recieve an education only dreamt of by the most ardant of academics... but things will not be as they seem, for the particular area occupied by the campus is a very special area where the dead is the most felt. Indeed, the Dead and the Living live in two identical yet separate dimensions, where the former grow more and more instable and bitter as they stew in their unfulfiled hopes and dreams and, in most case, in their brutal and unjust death. You see, the veil between the two dimensions is thin in the school, one Sugimura Koutou Gakkou, and even in the brightest day the dead can be heard and felt when alone and silent. During their years as high schoolers, our young heroes will be confronted with a tough choice; live in fear or risk death for their own peace of mind? Should they choose the later, they will be able to comunicate with the dead when alone and get Mysteries bestowed upon them in exchange for boons of Peace, but one thing is for sure, no matter their choice... Do not go in the school at night. Gameplay This roleplay will be much like a very interactive game mixed with a visual novel, where your character will face both mundanity and great danger... should they seek it. Your first priority should always be to keep your protege alive, for once they die you will have to make another character and start as a freshman all over again, that it may be the start of a new year or as a Transfer Student. What is also important to know is that your character will be expected to at least get medicre scores at school, and so studies will be important, as will social contact for their sanity. They will be stressed and hounded by spirits of all sort, and as such will have to either gain a sense of self of ironclad sturdiness or get into alievating the plights of their hunter by either working for them in some tasks or, should they become lost, provide another target to the vangeful dead's wrath in exchange for Peace of Mind. That brings us to your character Gauges, all with a miximum of an hundred percent and all steadily draining as time goes on. They are as such: Academic, Social, Physical, Peace of Mind and Health. Be ver aware that should any of these gauges reach zero, it will be game over for this character, and so you must keep a steady eye on every gauge of your character. What will happen if they are full, however? You will gain access to a beneficial event, at the cost of seventy five percent of your full gauge that will give a worthwhile boon or bonus to your character. How can you make it so, you ask? It's quite simple, each day will be separated into three time spheres called Morning, Afternoon and Evening that will give you the choice to do one sole event related to your choice of gauge, making it so that you will gain a proportionate amount of good karma in the chosen gauge. Now, Mysteries, or quest given by spirits, can be taken during either Morning or Afternoon and will be the only way to gain Peace of Mind in an important amount but will be dangerous. Choose wisely. That is all for the Gameplay, let us proceed to... Rules First of all, be polite in the OOC. Post at least one worthwhile paragraph per post, so the story unfold at a satisfying pace.
