Introduction

READ RULES FIRST

What you need to know
Some children are born with unique abilities that make them all special. Maybe they are smarter, more impulsive, calmer, shyer, louder, anything that makes them a better fighter or opponent. When they are very young, children are given "monitors", or little robotic implants put in them, to watch their every move and see how they think. If the children show no sign of being extraordinary, they are taken out around the age of 3, but if they show promise the monitor is kept in until the age of 8-10. Then a representative from battle school comes to recruit the child to train to be in the army to fight against buggers in the upcoming years. At the school, students undergo a rigorous curriculum, designed to teach military strategy and tactics. As befits an elite school, only the very best and brightest students are taken. The common age of "graduation" is usually 16-18. While at Battle School, they are taught academic subjects; especially a heavy grounding in mathematics and science, a setup for work in space.

However, the academic work is not the complete focus of Battle School. Rather, the true evaluation of the students occurs in battle simulations which are run by the school's instructors. The students are divided into 6-10 person armies. They fight mock battles in null gravity, armed with harmless lasers and suits that freeze when hit with a laser shot. These battles are used to test the tactical aptitude of the students. The object of the game is supposedly to 'destroy' or freeze all the enemy soldiers and then pass through the gate from which the enemy had entered.

But the buggers are getting closer, and the battle school is getting desperate. More children are being taken, and the training is harder. You don't just have the choice to try to fight, you must because food is being withheld and you wont survive 3 days of this training without food. And sleep is a hidden withhold. Are these children tough enough to take it, or will the crumble under the pressure?

Toggle Rules

1. You don't have to read the book to get it. I explained everything you need to know.
2. There will only be a few armies/squads, how many will be determined later and discussion about who wins the battles will be on the OOC forum, so check there daily.
3. No god modding. Your character can be smart, but not a super genius.
4. You may bring in characters from the book if you have read it, but not Ender or Bean. Also, PM me before you make them to make sure the character is okay.
5. Your character doesn't have to be a launchy (new 8-10 year old), but don't make them 18 in the beginning or they will have to leave soon.
6. If you want to have a commander/squad leader post on the ooc or pm me.
7. If you post a few times a day most days, then i will give you a leeway of not posting a day or two a week. I want active roleplayers though.
8. You CAN make a girl, but i don't want too many. I want more boys than girls, maybe twice as many boys as girls. The squads are coed.
9. If you make a young character (and we will be needing some) when you make one, don't make them stupid/immature. Everyone here is very mature.
10. I know this may be hard, but posts need to be more than one liners. How about at least 3 lines for each post? More is better though, but I don’t want an essay. If you can't think of something just have them go on a ramble in their head or something.
11. Lastly, you can make up to 2 characters, but you have to be able to handle it. If you have proven you can do two, in the future you maybe be aloud another. But i must aprove of them.
PM me any other questions.

No. Now wasn't the time to be thinking about such things. She had a new squad to lead. Though it this one died, she would make sure she would share their same fate. With ease she found her way to the Tiger Barracks and looked around. She guessed that this was home?

Re: [OOC] Battle School

I'm guessing my new char is going to be in Griffin?

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Hopefully My new character is okay...

Re: [OOC] Battle School

I make a charcater if it isn't to late! :]

Nevermind! sorry for bothering you. :]

Re: [OOC] Battle School

I dunno why, but I want to make a new character, should I?

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Could you reserve a character for me? I will have it in as soon as i can

Re: [OOC] Battle School

We need two more characters until we can start. Tell your friends and such.

Re: [OOC] Battle School

I'll take griffin.

Re: [OOC] Battle School

So it'll be Pheonix and Jessica. Which squad do you want?

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Tiger and griffin for when we start? That'll work. Once all the characters are in i will look over them and see who is best for what team. One of my characters will be a commander, so that's one more. Who want's it? They must be at least 15.

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Lets go with Tiger?

Re: [OOC] Battle School

We need a second squad animal. What'll it be?

Re: [OOC] Battle School

I'll take your word for it, never read the book

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Yeah, but i am sure we will get there. Enders game is an incredible book.

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Yeah sometimes its difficult to get a good amount of characters...

Re: [OOC] Battle School

We could do that too. I just think we need a decent amount of students.

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Or If needed we could have one squad and NPC teams that they fight against. Or at least until we have enough for two teams. Just an idea...

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Just so you all know, before we start we will need at least 12 students because we need at least 2 squads and each needs at least 6 students. Feel free to make double characters if you can handle it, or tell people about this so we can get started sooner.

Re: [OOC] Battle School

I accepted your character, it was great. I am sure we will be able to make it work so don't worry.

Re: [OOC] Battle School

Hey I just made a character (is it okay? I'm a beginner so I don't know if I did something wrong or anything like that...)
Anyways, if you accept my character, I just want to say that I'm in a different time zone than most of you guys (I think it's a 10-hour difference from America), so I might not be online at the same times as you guys, so I just thought you should know :)
