Come on in!

Invite only

Now don't be discouraged! just because this is an invite only group does not mean you can not join! Simply Go to our chat rooms and get the feel of the members, pending members (people who aren't members but have a character sheet) will be able to roleplay in the OOC and really find out if this is the place for them. The invite only isn't to scare people away but to prevent people from joining and then later finding out that this isn't their cup of tea. If you really wish to join, speak with an existing member and see if you can become sponsored. When you enter in your app, please put down who sponsored you with the link to your character sheet, all other member acceptance forms will be denied so please make double sure you've read all the rules!

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.

Countdown to till Open Enrollments

Sunday, February 1st @ 11:59pm



: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. Read the F.A.Q.s and other journals before joining. they contain most of the needed info!
2. You may use any creature in mythology, but not a named monster like Medusa or Hades.
3. You may make up a monster, but your character will be looked at more carefully for balance.
4. You may use a mage, or other human that has superhuman talents.
5. You must carry a glamor with you at all times. This can take the shape of anything you can physically posses.
6. Every student must live in the dorms.
7. Dorms are separated by male and female and then by grade.
8. 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.
9. Inside the school grounds you are allowed to show your true form. Only when exiting school grounds must you wear your glamor.
10. There is no dress code, but please wear something...

: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. 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.

So members! you have this unique opportunity to sponsor someone, to give them a chance at getting into the group.

Before you sponsor someone you need to ask yourself these questions:

Do you think they will be active?
-if you're not sure, get to know them!

Do they know how to roleplay?
-go ahead and do some rp in the ooc chat room and get to know their pending characters. if they do not know how to rp or if they need coaching, you will be responsible to teach them

Do you feel comfortable supporting this person and helping them out if they need assistance?
-If their app gets denied then you must help them revise it!


Even if you sponsor someone, that will give them the ability to submit their character sheet, but this doesn't mean they will auto be accepted! we still need all the characters to be at the standard that we strive for.

Any questions please comment here. Also if you wish to sponsor someone, please comment here, and do not note the group! We're trying to keep the income of questions a little organized ^_^;


Warning to all current members that starting from this opening we will be instating a strike system associated with sponsoring. Given that the sponsor system was supposed to ease the stress of the app checking group of moderators, so that we do not have to go through every individual application and mark off every single mistake that is there that could have been avoided from more thorough reading of the journals or looking at other member applications. The purpose of a sponsor is not simply to sign up on the sponsor journal that you're sponsoring someone, when you become a sponsor it becomes your responsibility to be sure the member you are sponsoring is credible, their app is up to snuff, and they are a capable of being a productive, beneficial member of the group. But it seems that people are just sponsoring much of anyone willy-nilly, so instead to coax sponsors to be more active we will be instating a strike system upon sponsors.

Sponsors will be given a strike for every person they sponsor who does not reach the standards of the group. We're not saying their application has to be perfect because it is still our job to fine tune the application, but if there are grammar issues left and right, the information is too ambiguous or missing all together, and the concepts are convoluted or unoriginal then they will be outright rejected. The standard is that at least 60% of their app must be correct by journal standards and fall in line with the lore and rules of the group. These strikes will not be announced outright and there will be no show of public humiliation associated with the strike system. Sponsors who receive strikes will be notified personally in a note, and when they reach 3 strikes they will receive a note that tells them they have lost their ability to sponsor people and will be notified of such. Any people sponsored by someone with their sponsorship privileges revoked will be asked to find a new sponsor, or their application will be turned down.

Would you allow like a monster called Glitch? Think of like BEN Drowned and that will give you a idea of what i had in mind for my character.
