Okay kids... it's time to try to start another Role-playing Thingamajig. The last one did fairly well, but quickly died off. The destruction of the old site was pretty much it's final breath. But, hopefully, this new one will intrigue all the old players and prod a few new folks to joining in as well.
The rules are the same for all message board role-playing things. Make up your own character(s), write what they're doing, and continue along the story. Comments on the story must be flagged as OOC or Out of Character, and please try to keep them to a minimum. You can only write for your own character(s) - no deciding so-and-so's character runs off a cliff to their doom. I'll be on hand as a deciding factor, if folks reach an impass on how a certain event should conclude. Also, if anyone has any questions about the world or whatever, PM me. I'm hoping my first entry will answer all your questions.
Otherwise, on with the story.
An older, well-dressed gentleman stood on the stage of the auditorium, addressing the crowd of new students before him. While he had many years under his belt, he still seemed spry and knowledgable of today's youth.
"Welcome to your first year at Chambers High School. We hope that your stay here will be pleasant, and that you will learn many things that will make you and your families proud."
He placed his hand in his pocket. It seemed as if he had done the same speech for many years. This was all old hat to him... the same thing every year. Another flock leaves the nest while a new batch of hatchlings enters.
"My name is Dr. Jenkin Stein. I am the Principal of Chambers High, and your last line of authority. I do not tolerate disobedience, however I do reward those who follow my rules."
He leaned against the podium, and lowered his tone, as if he were to revealing new and exciting information. However, the students had all heard the same story.
"You are all here because you are all special. Each of you has powers and abilities that ordinary humans do not. Some of you have super abilities. Our superhero and supervillain courses will teach you all you need to know. Others are 'creatures of the night' or are one with the supernatural. We have many courses for you as well. And even those of you whose abilities have yet to manifest, or are, well, undefined, we will help you find your place as well. When you leave this school, you will have the skills to make it in this world! You will make a difference!"
He paused, waiting for applause, but only received a few claps from somewhere in the audience. Unaffected, he continued.
"Thank you. If you have any problems, or just want to talk, do not be afraid to approach me. I am there for you. Meanwhile, your luggage and personal items have been sent to your rooms. Make yourselves at home. Get to know your roommates. The next four years will be over faster than you think, so enjoy them while you can. Classes begin tomorrow at 6 AM. Dismissed."
Hopefully you all get the gist. Now, get crackin'!
