This looks like fun and cozy. I've been thinking about a character for this RP, but looking at the OOC section so far, it seems there will be a lot of things to know first before I jump in.
How many confirmed players so far if you don't mind me asking? And does this RP have a railed plotline, final goal, things the players have to achieve together, or just a slice-of-life RP?
Hello and welcome! Yes, so I think so far we have about 8 players with tentative interest and 4 that already have characters submitted and accepted and the rest are likely actively working on sheets.
So, it does but it also doesn't. It has plot lines that I'll be teasing and the wider world will be doing stuff regardless of what happens at the academy. I think we've turned into a slice of life but with political shenanigans. So, while I do have a rough idea of what sorts of plot hooks I'm going to be throwing at you, it's up to you, the players, to decide if you WANT to partake and/or HOW you want to interact with it. They will happen regardless of that outcome. So.. yes. There will be things you can achieve together. But I'll be formulating things based on the actions and decisions of the characters themselves.
For example, let's say that Random NPC A loses their backpack and are VERY eager to get it back. They put up help wanted posters around the school. A character COULD pick up one of those posters and decide to seek out this NPC to see how they can help. And through doing so, maybe unlock a large plot involving backpack thieves.. idk. But if they don't, the backpack thieves continue their ways and get worse and things escalate. If the characters still do nothing about it, perhaps eventually the school itself catches them and kicks them out and the plot ends. It would have ended sooner had the characters done something, but it still progressed regardless of their intervention or not.
Now, I don't necessarily have an over-arching plot or goal in mind. I think the idea is just to see them all to graduation where they then take their place in the world. So, unless we find new things to do with this world, end-game is graduation after 4 years.
EDIT: To everyone!!! if you have an idea for something like this, even if it's something sneaky YOUR character is doing, please send those to me! I'd love to have characters involved in some of these smaller plot hooks and things. Maybe your character gets up late at night to raid the kitchen for food and everyone thinks it's a raccoon so they start to investigate. Maybe your character has been meeting in secret with one of the professors for lessons, but a rumor spreads that you're dating and you seek help from your friends, etc etc.
edit 2: if you see me constantly correcting, this keyboard at work is ASS. And the u key is sticky. ):<
