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!


Art help



This group likes to focus on roleplay and art submissions, though art submissions are not required, you will have to complete your school assignment with either a picture, writing assignment, or a submission of your roleplay between you and your teacher.

Setting




:iconblacksparklesplz:Setting:iconblacksparklesplz:



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




:iconblacksparklesplz:Rules!:iconblacksparklesplz:



: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...
11. 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.


Monster Academy is SAVED

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 5, 2014, 10:20 PM
The headmistress looked up with steely determination as the energy she had been gathering reached its peak, a glowing orb of magnificent light in her hands, "Athena, give me your guidance, your aim and valor," she invoked in a breath barely above a whisper, as the collected energy morphed and lengthened, slowly solidifying into a resplendent golden shaft, like the heart of the sun, topped with a spear head of silver like the opalescence of the moon. "The Spear of Athena, not once in battle have you ever faltered, may you fly true as ever today!" With that the headmistress hefted the spear and in a perfect Olympian stance hurled it with all her remaining might, sending it soaring towards the heart of the titan.

"TEACHERS NOW!" Todashi bellowed as he rose briefly above the clouds to be lost from sight. In her giant stature, Otekah rushed up behind the brute coming from the forest, grabbing it's arms and leveraging it back to thrust out it's vulnerable exposed chest while Meredith bound it's legs in it's own shadows, the inky tendrils paralyzing it in place and creating a staircase of shadow to its chest.
Verna with a victorious yell to the heavens and sword alight of holy fire leapt up the shadowy path till she reached its chest. Smashing a large chunk of rock in a single slash and leaving a gaping gash that revealed the pulsing black onyx of its elemental heart.
Alaknanda raised her arachnid arms and legs to the sky, causing lightning to shoot down and wreathe the traveling spear in a voltaic fury to rival a hurricane.
Agathos Put his hands together and furrowed his brow, muttering in old Romanian a deep magic before clapping his hands, instantly teleporting all the students near the titan and on the battlefield to the roof of the school safely out of range of the upcoming explosion. 
Ian concentrated as flowing water shot up from the ground, traveling up Titan's body and seeping into the chest wound before pulling at like a pair of angry surging hands, keeping it from closing as rock was eroded away.
The titan roared in pain as dark light began to build in it's core threatening to flood out in an angry blast.  The spear reached level with the gash in Titans chest a howling roaring wind could be heard as Todashi shot back down from the skies, his arm covered in an angry tempest like a dragons head, catching up behind the spear, "Hokuto Doragon no Tenohira! (北斗ドラゴンの手のひら)" he yelled out as he open palm punched the butt of the spear, a blast of tremendous wind knocking him backwards as the spear shot forth in the blink of an eye propelled with an amazing force that flattened trees in its wake.  
"Not so fast ~Feet pue tan~" Remy growled as he stabbed a long iron needle into a stone doll made from golem remains, silencing the black energy in titan's heart. Otekah let go as she heard Todashi yell and rolled through the ground as the hurtling golden projectile smashed into Titan's chest, caving it in with the force as the black stone was obliterated. A second later the entire top half of Titan exploded into the sky in an eruption of lightning and golden light that lit the entire sky for miles around...


¡¡¡Congratulations!!!
Hooray everyone, the school has been saved by your valiant efforts! THe final stone has been pulverised to a pulp with the help of everyone! Students allowed the teachers to form a counter offensive and now the titan has been defeated! While much resting and repair will be needed after all the ordeals the school has been through now is a time to celebrate the day is yours! And with much to spare on this great effort you beat the point total TWICE!! Congratulations once again to all!

TITAN BONUS!

(p.s. if not all your students are listed in one place DO TELL IF WE MISSED THEM OMG)

They each receive.... 1,650 POINTS!!!

Stony Resolve
Also for each student who participated now earns the "Stony Resolve" Achievement giving them each the following new minor skill!
Resolve of Stone: This monster has earned the ability to keep cool and collected under pressure (even if they don't show it on the outside). When there back is to the wall they have the determination to keep on going, giving them the ability to shrug off mundane discouragements and take twice as long to fatigue physically.
(You can choose to take off some parts of this if it contrasts with what you want with your monster but not add up with something different

HIDDEN BONUS UNLOCKED!!!
Because you all did so well each student who participated also earns a Geodeling pet! A geodling is a small rock creature, Most commonly four limb-ed and with at least single crystal for an eye (Those with 2 legs or more than 4 are rare. Can have more than one eye, but not less)

Geodeling
Minor Skill: Limited Tremorsense: A Geodeling doesn't really see, but can feel vibrations in the ground to sense it's surroundings. A Geodeling can sense an object or being within a 10 foot radius around it as long as the thing in question is in contact with a surface the Geodeling touches.

You guys are absolutely amazing! You demolished and mangled each goal set before you, This is going to be a very good year!

TOTAL EVENT HEROES!! Most valuable Monster!
You all did amazingly well, but every team has MVP's, in this case MvM's, and here they are!

Nadya :iconrayne-storme:

Taral :iconyami-star:

Brighid :iconsoaringmoose:

Umami :iconzanyzarah:

These heroes went above and beyond! For their valor and bravery they are being made member of the newly formed IDC, or, Inter-class Disciplinary Committee! They will report directly to Todashi, but have been charged with keeping the school and her students safe (also getting nifty jackets later) SO congratulations once again, lets look forward to the next event, but in the meantime, rest, be merry and CELEBRATE!

Total of Points obtained in this whole event: 16,259 Points thanks to everyone's efforts!
