Setting




:icongreensparklesplz:Setting:icongreensparklesplz:




It is the year 2014 and the clothing styles are constantly changing in the City of Cadance, but this is not a ordinary city. For it has something strange inside. In the down town area, a tall sky scraper reaches up into the skies above, the tip covered by the looming grey clouds. People go in and out every day but they leave no sign to tell you what lies behind yonder doors. The address is 789 6th st. Cadance, NA 845123. Cadance is a large city, roughly the size of New York, and the Country Nacoir, or NA, is wide and has a very large amount of land. Outside of the city is nothing but long farm lands and vineyards. Cadance is the lone city on the Island of Nacoir, which is located East of the United States and within the mist of the Atlantic Ocean. It is the size of the state Oregon and is very populated with humans.

As you enter the sky scraper through the main entrance, you are greeted with a second door. The second door refuses attempts of opening until the first one has fully closed. There, the glass door opens up and the sturdy gates of the school are revealed. When you walk in it's like a whole different realm, expanding far into a bright blue sky as if you stepped outside rather than in. Only students with their ID card can go in and out of these doors, with their glamor on. Glamor is the students equivalent of make up, it helps them blend into society. Also another prerequisite is that the student must have taken Human Studies, to know the etiquette of the world beyond.

Now for you students! You have all received an acceptance letter. This will tell you, in full detail, how to attend class and how to get in the first time. From the far end of town there is an entrance to the Catacombs, There is a detailed map in the letter telling you exactly how to get in. You have to take many twists and turns, that look exactly the same in your eyes, but the map is very clear and only an imbecile could get lost. Once you get to your destination you are greeted with a large door that is unlike any other your eyes have laid upon before. It is framed with a type of jagged, black rock, that may be volcanic. The doors are long and seem to be made out of Stained oak. You're instructed to knock twice. Once knocked, the door opens up to the lower hallway of the building. There you will be greeted by the Headmistress, a large owl woman. She asks you for your Glamor host item. You present her with such an item, examples are like watches or cell phones are common. Your item is now enchanted and she encourages you to try it.

Once you activate it for the first time, it tingles all over your body. You then look around and she points a mirror at your face. "I hope you like it" She chirps with an all knowing wisdom. "You may take any classes in any order, but you may not leave the school until you've completed your human studies class. You can take up to three classes a semester and a minimum of one." She goes over the schedule and then shows you to the main hall. It seems though this school is in a normal sky scraper, the building is much more like an old English castle. Like the building was enchanted, only the doors were attached but nothing else. When in the school you can see the castle and the vast fields around it. But when you exit the front door you are greeted with the street of a busy city. She shows you to your classes and gives a brief introduction to all the teachers. She then takes you out the back door. You know that there is magic afoot when you see the acres and acres of land just waiting for you. There is also an impressive military grade obstacle course at your disposal. "and this is where you'll be taking your M.P.E. class, though if you fly please be careful not to fly higher than 500 meters in the air, our magic will not allow you to leave" she winks at you and she continues to show you around, including the dorm you will be staying at. They are on the 7th(boys) and 8th(girls) floor and are separated by gender. She then goes over the consequences of students sneaking over and other such rules.

She finally gives you your dorm room key and tells you she has to go greet more students and you should sign up for classes and to reach your teachers at your own leisure.

Rules




:icongreensparklesplz:Rules:icongreensparklesplz:




:bulletgreen:Drawing Rules:bulletgreen:
There has been a little confusion that I would like to clear up. This group is meant to collide both writing and drawing artists together in a role playing group. This isn't very common, I'm sure you know. This is because there are some who cannot draw, but write fantastically. I feel like we would be hindering our role playing by eliminating the wonderful writers we have here in DA.

Because of this I'm allowing people to use other artists, bases, and doll makers. But there's always something we need to remember. We must always credit the original artist. They spent time and effort into their art and they deserve respect. I will not tolerate art thieves in this group.

:bulletblue:Academy Rules:bulletblue:
1. You may use any creature in mythology, but not a named monster like Medusa or Hades.
2. You may make up a monster, but your character will be looked at more carefully for balance.
3. You may use a mage, or other human that has superhuman talents.
4. You must carry a glamor with you at all times. This can take the shape of anything you can physically posses.
5. Every student must live in the dorms.
6. Dorms are separated by male and female and then by grade.
7. There is a sky barrier above the school - students that fly must not fly higher than the barrier. If they try, it will deflect them and make them dizzy.
8. Inside the school grounds you are allowed to show your true form. Only when exiting school grounds must you wear your glamor.
9. There is no dress code, but please wear something...
10. YOU MUST NOT REVEAL YOUR MONSTER SELF TO HUMANS.

:bulletred:Role Play Rules:bulletred:
1. NO GOD-MODDING (To ensure this rule is followed, please select your powers from the already accepted list in the journals
2. Do not use OOC (out of character) knowledge to your advantage. For instance, if my character has a weakness to copper, and your character had no way of knowing that, if you use copper against me, that is cheating.
3. Use your brain!
4. Be realistic. I don't need overpowered characters running amuck.
5. A good role play gives and takes.
6. You're not allowed to use powers unless they are on your character sheet. Don't make stuff up as you go along...
7. Keep true to your character!
8. Stay active!
9. This group won't solely rely on your contributing art, but it does on role play. YOU MUST ATTEND THE CHAT AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK. I'm tired of dead chat rooms..
10. There will be a "lit" chat and a "script" chat. "Lit" chat requires at least 4 sentences and "script" chat requires at least 2.


Easter Event! April-May1st UPDATE!!!

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 8, 2014, 7:17 PM
Roleplay for this event will be held Here. If someone isn't there, stick around for a bit, or try to get others to come in from the ooc chat :)

The courtyard has opened up again yet another portal! Behind the fountain two large doors have risen and stay closed, yet they are not locked~


If you wander inside the dark stained oak doors, you look down and you see yourself in different clothes! You look forward and find long grassy fields, with warm winds and the sun held high with blue skies and puffy white clouds. Below you is a stone brick path that takes you to a old Medieval Castle, you finally recognize where that clothing came from!

You approach the castle and you feel dwarfed to it, the door opens and a gentleman lets you inside, he wears a bunny man mask. You see the main foyer and it's decorated in pale pinks, blues, and yellows! It's spring and if you wander the hallways you'll see everyone is having a good time.

Inside the eating hall, you see a feast laid out, all kinds of food to test and delight your pallet. The room opposite of it is the dance hall where festive music is held. The plethora of extra rooms will keep you busy as this castle is a little more odd than you thought. Sometimes you go through one door and come out a different room. This isn't quite right, some walls open to secret passage ways, and hidden rooms.

If you choose to leave through the back door, the sky is suddenly darkened and the stars come out as you can see hung up lanterns and a sign. "please take a basket, the one who collects the most eggs will be the winner!" A stack of baskets, below the sign, come in all sorts of colors. Once you pick up the basket, a splinter pricks your finger, and the basket changes color to your favorite hue and it is now your basket. Ahead of you is a dark forest, full of moving black vines and trees with smiles carve into their bark, skulls hang from the branches and you can swear you hear them cackle and scowl. You must go into this macabre forest and collect as many eggs, they are brightly colored and have a feint glow. IF you wander far from the path, you find yourself quickly losing sight of it. It is very easy to get lost in this forest. It can't seem to keep it's vines off of you, I sure hope you brought someone with you...

Dark threads move through the forest towards you...

roleplay rules:
1. you may have fun in this castle but you can't take anything from it! you can even find a treasure room and try to take items with you, but you will not be able to take them back with you, they are magically attached to the castle.
2. if you find something, it is not magical, you can't use it to make yourself stronger. however that doesn't mean you can't tell someone otherwise.
3. You are capable of finding your way out of the forest, but it's not easy, don't make it seem like your character knows everything.
4. if your character can fly, they find themselves easily caught in the vines, they are magically enchanted to keep you below the forest line
5. You can roleplay as any of the castle staff, they are dressed in bunny and chick suits, they are plain and creepy and stare a lot...

Event rules:
1. This event is not mandatory!
2. You can draw your character interacting with this event and receive x2 points, simply say that it is for the Easter event, somewhere in the description or it will not have x2 points!
3. have your character participate in the egg hunt but don't give them an unrealistic amount of eggs to have... if you think you're going to tell me that your character survived the ghostly forest for hours on end and collected 300 eggs, I'm going to call bullshit. I won't need roleplay log confirmations, so lets be honest here!
4. Keep roleplaying and keep track of how many eggs you found!
5. Eggs when found will be alone and they will be hidden well, high and low places. No egg batches, there will never be two or more eggs chilling next to each other naturally.
6. To submit your number of eggs you've collected, you'll have to submit a picture of your character out of the forest and their basket.
7. Like I said I'm not going to request roleplay logs, but each egg must be roleplayed out as you finding them, so someone else has to be there!
8. You guys can team up but, only teams of 2-3 people can combined. They can pull their baskets together afterwards for a higher egg count, but the reward will be split up among them.
9. When dressing your character, go ahead and have some fun, it isn't strict medieval styles

If you have any questions, please post them here and I can update the rules as necessary.

UPDATE! 4/8
White eggs have begun to appear in the forest. These eggs shine like the moon and can be collected as well. Make sure to keep track of your white egg total separately as they will have an impact on the event. The white eggs also appear either singly, in a cluster of 2-3 eggs, unlike colored eggs, or adjacent to a colored egg.
