How to STAT

Stats are to be included in your Character Profile and may affect your character's experiences.
Old RPers ONLY start off with 20 Stat points (as they had built up a lot prior).
New RPers start off with the standard 10 Stat points.

Intellect:
(Gained from studying)
Your character can not get good grades without this stat.
This refers to studying in own time (with or without friends). Study can be performed at home, during school hours or wherever. Attending a class (given there is a teacher present in the room) will also increase this stat as attending classes is optional. You may decide to have your character skip a class to hang out with friends or for whatever reason you desire. Skipping a class results in your character gaining no intellect but you do not lose current stats either.
This stat only affects your character’s ability to cope with school work and grades. A low stat doesn't make your character stupid.
Per post with your character involved in a study session or class (with a teacher) you will receive 1 point.

Physical/Sporting Ability:
(Gained from practice)
Your character can not perform well in physical activity/sports without this stat.
This refers to playing sports during school hours for P.E class, extracurricular club or just for the heck of it. We will also accept spending time at the gym or running around your neighbourhood. The only requirement is physical activity conducted for the purpose of being fit/ serious fitness.
Per post with your character involved in a game/ workout you will receive 1 point.

Charm:
(Gained from flirting and being successful, if unsuccessful will decrease)
Your character can not be the school's heartthrob without this stat.
This of course refers to flirting with other characters. Flirting with a NPC is not applicable to this stat.
Per post that your character is successful/encouraged to flirt more by obvious 'signs' or 'go signals', gain 1 point.
However, per post where your character is rejected you will lose 1 point. If you are at 0 charm you will stay at 0.
All of the above apply to both physical and verbal displays. It's hard to be charming kno?

Popularity:
(Gained from being mentioned by other characters)
Your character can not be considered a school popular without this stat.
This refers to both gossip and being as they say 'checked out'. You are being talked about/checked out, making you more noticed, making you popular in some sense. Being thought about or just seen does not count towards this stat.
You will earn 1 point per person who notices your character due to physical appearance
OR per person who mentions or talks about your character specifically to others.
If they notice you again, or talk about you again in their next post or posts after.. you will continue to accumulate points.

Notoriety
(Gained from being mentioned by other characters negatively)
Your character can not be the school's bad boy/girl without this stat.
Follows the opposite idea of Popularity. This refers to negative gossip and negative judgments based on your character's appearance (like a negative checked out). Being thought about or just seen does not count towards this stat.
You will earn 1 point per person who notices your character negatively due to physical appearance
OR per person who mentions or talks about your character negatively specifically to others.
If they notice you again, or talk about you again in their next post or posts after.. you will continue to accumulate points.
In the event you do not want Notoriety points, you must deduct points from your Popularity equal to the amount you want deducted from Notoriety.


REMEMBER

Different to old RP, we are requiring everyone to present their gained stats at the bottom of their posts.
This serves as a self reminder to you to update and also to let others know they should update if your post affects their stats too.
eg.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer nec odio. Praesent libero. Sed cursus ante dapibus diam. Sed nisi. Nulla quis sem at nibh elementum imperdiet. Duis sagittis ipsum. Praesent mauris. Fusce nec tellus sed augue semper porta. Mauris massa. Vestibulum lacinia arcu eget nulla.

Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos. Curabitur sodales ligula in libero. Sed dignissim lacinia nunc. Curabitur tortor. Pellentesque nibh. Aenean quam. In scelerisque sem at dolor. Maecenas mattis. Sed convallis tristique sem. Proin ut ligula vel nunc egestas porttitor. Morbi lectus risus, iaculis vel, suscipit quis, luctus non, massa.

Stats
------
Intellect + 2
Popularity (to Rhys) + 1
Notoriety -10
Popularity -10


The formatting of your Stats does not matter so long as it is clear and at the bottom of your post for people to easily recognise. Colour coding as above is highly encouraged.

Any further questions please ask in main ooc and we will clarify this post further.
Thanks for your time.

How to do Relationship Statuses


This feature will help you keep track of who your character has met and befriended etc. It will also help other Rpers to be aware of how their character is viewed by others and how they're fairing social wise.
My advice is to get a variety! Don't be wary of starting rivalries/enemies for the sake of it.
You can also combine the following official statuses as you see fit:

1. Acquaintance: Someone your character has met and/or been pointed out to know. You must have this status to be able to know that other character's name. If you have not been 'acquainted' with that person, you do not know their name. If you would like to address a character you are not yet acquainted with, you can describe their appearance. Remember to put brackets like so (Kirsty) so we know who you mean.
ALL seniors are acquainted with fellow senior. Juniors however starting school, will not know anyone unless a plot has been developed beforehand.

2. Friend: Someone your character gets along with, plans to get to know further and hang out with.

3. Best friend: Someone your character frequently hangs out with.

4. Rival: Someone your character is frequently competitive against/ wants to be better than. 

5. Enemy: Someone your character hates the guts of. 

6. Crush: Oh come on, you know what this means...

7. Boyfriend/ Girlfriend: Someone your character is officially going out with. 

You may also assign unofficial relationship statuses instead, provided they are reasonable.
eg. Fling, Cousin, Childhood Friend, Roommate, Junior Partner, Ex etc.


REMEMBER


Update your relationship statuses within your character sheets as the roleplay progresses.
Feel free to provide additional information such as your character's impressions, theme songs describing feelings towards particular relationships... same as how LSD worked.
If you make any major changes to your character's relationship statuses, leave a 'RS UPDATE' notice in your character's synopsis so we know to check it out.

eg. layout only.
You may organise this differently.

How to Attend Classes


A regular school day goes as follows:

Class 1
Break
Class 2
Lunch
Early Dismissal/ Club

Classes for Maths and Gym are shared between Seniors and Juniors to grant more opportunity to socialize with the other grade.
Teachers will not always show up to class and your characters are free to skip classes too if you'd like.
During classes with a teacher present, you may continue to engage in conversation with your fellow peers but keep in mind the teacher's personality. If you have Mrs. Kita for instance, your character would probably talk among the class freely unlike if you have Mr. Hayashi where you might be more careful in how you communicate by passing notes or whispering. Remember that your character gains 1 intellect point per post of attending a class with a teacher.
Also, the start and end of classes, breaks and lunches will be signaled in GM posts so keep an eye out for those. We will underline, bold and maybe even resize it to make sure it's noticeable.

Below are randomised locations. Please note that buildings are close to each other depending on closeness in the alphabet. eg. Building A and B are right beside each other. Building A cannot see Building C.
Maybe in a layout this is muddled but since this is a RP, it's just like that to keep things more simple. This is a simple system for if you are on say Level 1 of building A and want to look across to spy on a girl in the Level 1 window of building B. etc.
It may feel generic and boring to have a schedule but keep in mind not every day will be a regular school day and there will be events causing subjects to be missed for it.
BUILDING A's ground floor contains sickbay, reception and staff offices. The top floor contains principal's office and the library.


SENIORS:

Monday
Class 1: Science [LAB G.3 BUILDING C]
Break
Class 2: Maths [ROOM 1.1 BUILDING C]

How to Handle Inactivity


Your turn to post but your partner or next in line has disappeared?
Please call out to them in OOC and wait a maximum of 4 days (starting from the last relevant interaction post).
If said roleplayer returns and asks you to wait, you can then wait 3 days further.

If inactivity continues, post ahead however possible which may include:
*Dragging said character along for the ride
*Conversing with other characters in the group
*Leaving the current conversation to move elsewhere

GMs will notice and attempt to contact the inactive roleplayer to check for commitment, in the event their spot in RP is compromised due to frequent inactivity without prior notice.

How to STAT – 2nd Edition

Rules for all STATS:
1. Points do not stack.
This means a role-player cannot gain more than 1 point per stat from the same post.

How to Attend Classes


UPDATED.
Sorry if this has confused anyone. Changes have been made to the regular school day which will now go as follows:

Class 1
Lunch/Break
Class 2/ Early Dismissal for Club Members

There will only be one lunch break now to accommodate Inryoku and free time between classes.
The original schedule had a break and lunch separately but because of the posting rate, this is more convenient to move ahead to the new day!

Class 2 will still take place but students may leave early for club activities.
You can post once in class just to grab your homework or get an idea of the lesson before leaving if you like or stay longer! This has been altered so that students who do not have club activities, have something to do instead of finishing up the day by going home and waiting too long for the day to end.
If you want to leave class to watch a club in session but are not an official member, it is an option but you will have to keep in mind certain teachers. Mr. Hayashi and Ms. Araya would definitely not allow it!

If you have any questions, please contact us and we'll help you~ ^^

How to STAT – 3RD Edition (more lax and simplified)

Rules for all STATS:
1. Points do not stack.
This means a roleplayer cannot gain more than 1 point per stat from the same post. (The only exception is fulfilling a dare from Daily Dares)
2. Points cannot be gained from NPCs.
Self-explanatory. You can only gain points through your own and fellow roleplayers' interactions. NPCs do not qualify as characters.

All stats only corresponds to IN SCHOOL or EVENT RELATED performance and reputation.
This is to not place a limit on your character's story but keep crowd controlling fair where it greatly affects others. Once someone crowd controls even if a roleplayer disagrees with the way the crowd is handled, they are unable to change it as it would ruin story flow. Please understand this as the reason why we have Daily Ranks and respect it. For those outside of Daily Ranks, NPCs are permissible in smaller numbers like individual or group, not crowd.
Another reason for stats is to avoid mary-sues. If a roleplayer wants their character to be acknowledged for their grades, their athleticism etc. it must be earned first.


Onto STAT Clarification:

Intellect
Earned solely by the roleplayer through:
✓ Studying
✓ Attending Specified Classes (with a teacher present) eg. Science, English
✓ Specified Clubs eg. Airdalen Overachiever's Committee

Athleticism
Earned solely by the roleplayer through:
✓ Thought out Exercise, Workouts
✓ Sports
✓ Attending Specified Classes (with a teacher present) eg. Physical Education
✓ Specified Clubs eg. Airdalen Kyūdō Elites, Airdalen's Basketball Conquerors, Upstream

Charm
Given by other roleplayers through:
✓ Positive Flirting
✓ Attraction
Earned by the roleplayer through:
✓ Specified Clubs eg. Inryoku in-waiting

Popularity
Given by other roleplayers through:
✓ Admiration eg. physical appearance, personality
✓ Positive and neutral name dropping (to other characters in the roleplay aside from the one being spoken about)
Earned by the roleplayer through:
✓ Specified Clubs eg. Airdalen Showstoppers, Airdalen Social Society, Resonance of Airdalen

Notoriety
Given by other roleplayers through:
✓ Dislike
✓ Negative name dropping (to other characters in the roleplay aside from the one being spoken about)

Please make sure you tag characters that earned a stat point from your characters even if they themselves are not interacted with in the post because that is how the points at the end of the RP day will be added up.

I think that wraps it up! If I have missed anything or you have any questions, ask and we'll assist you.

継続は力なり。
(Keizoku wa chikara nari)
Literally: Continuance (also) is power/strength.
Meaning: Don't give up. Just continuing to hold on will yield/reveal strength and power. Continuing on after a setback is its own kind of strength. Perseverance is power.
