Introduction

Step into the school you can never leave...

Welcome to Dimme Boarding School.

We take pride in our low prices, our rigorous education, and our well controlled environment. When you drop off your child, we will be taking great care of them for the next four years. To keep the best environment though, we highly discourage outside visitation after the first week of school, and all cell phones will be confiscated, replaced with school monitored devices for communication only within school grounds. While it may seem excessive, we find that our isolation is the ideal setting for focused learning. Enclosed you will find a schedule for the first week to give to your child.

Thank you for your trust, your child is in the best of hands.
Sincerely,
Lana Dimme
School Director

A dark secret haunts the inner campus...
Image

Dimme Boarding School is a small, not very well know center for uninterupted education. Nobody knows much about it, but they say if you take a wrong turn in the deep woods of a certain national park, you might just find it's tall gates and high walls, with the very modern, well kept building sitting neatly inside. They brag very high quality education, with high level classes that will prepare students for careers like politicians, doctors, and scientists. It looks like quite the fine place from the outside, but their policies are a bit... excessive. High school aged kids who enter those gates are kept completely isolated, cut off from all contact with the rest of the world. It's the ideal place to make a child disappear, if, perhaps, there was a reason for such measures.

Enrolled children arrive on the first Sunday for check in at the office, where they and their parents finish paper work and then move into the older set of dorms on campus, where they will live only for the next week, away from the rest of the school, as something of an initiation and screening process, though no one prior has ever been removed from the school. The fist week of classes is spent getting a general overview and finding a niche for each individual to decide their future schedules.

However, the "Introduction" class isn't anything that it sounds like. The class is known better as "Monstrology", and the week is spent in a crash course covering an A-Z of all sorts of monsters, demons, mythical creatures, angels, gods, and more. The "final testing" on the last day is suppose to be set aside for an essay exam on the "monster that stood out most to you, or that you related to the most", all of which are "graded" during a long lunch period, before an assembly to have students go through "health services" to "update their immunity shots and prepare them for life in the inner dorms".

The students are not all immediately moved, but told that they will wait their turn for an assisted move while staying in their temporary dorm. It's not long after, however, that students begin to fall mysteriously ill, and are quickly being removed to the "Isolation Dormitories", an odd building outside of campus as well that has an odd design to it, with a glass roof and outer walls on the top floor, and a variety of materials visible from the outside used to create each individual room. Similarly inside, it seems like sections of rooms have common themes, but these themes can vary wildly, from rooms made solidly of certain metals, to ones with odd seals over or on the doors. Some are larger or taller while others have their own, small pools or hot tubs.

By the time the students arrive here, most begin to realize what is happening, and its far too late to back out.

You see, everything is found in Dimme Academy's motto: scientiae creat monstra omnium nostrum.

"Science creates monsters of us all"

Toggle Rules

  • I'm not putting a limit on character creation, but consider what you can actively keep up with before you submit that 8th character.
  • Pictures can be anything you want, anime art or photograph. It may seem more chaotic that way, but my aim is to make sure you feel comfortable with that character so you can get in their shoes. Whatever your head space requires, go for it.
  • As far as monsters go, pretty much anything will fly WITH THE QUALIFICATION that all characters need to be somewhat human-like in nature, if not appearance. This means you can have that Sphynx or Griffin, but make sure they can still act, feel, and interact somewhat like a human. Another example is Wendigos, typically humanoid but not exactly considered high in social skills. Characters should be able to do more than hunt and act like a complete animal, so your Wendigo can crave flesh but should still be able to attend his math class (whether or not they pay attention).
  • Characters should be about proper age for a student entering 9th grade. There's a little wiggle room for accelerated or held back students, but mostly that age would be right around the 13-15 area.
  • On that note, I'm am VERY uncomfortable with kids that age doing anything sex wise, so please just... don't. Romance is fine, your sweet little high school sweet heart thing is okay, but unless we're talking some older characters only with other older characters, developing things that far is a general no.
  • If you want, I WILL allow teacher and staff characters, who should already be monsters. Please change on your profile skeleton the word "Student" to "Teacher" or "Staff" though. Also note that these characters, being older, may have more intense relationships (ONLY WITH OTHER STAFF/TEACHERS), but anything to do with the do should be taken somewhere else. Just fade to black or time skip here.
  • Fighting on school grounds is bound to happen, but teachers are obligated to break it up if they see it. During fights, there should be no god modding, ie creating undefeated characters who "autohit" or "autoblock" everything (for example "Joe punched Jane at an insanely fast speed, before she could see it coming, knocking her tooth out in a splatter of blood, before speedily taking cover from any possible counter attack.") Another general rule is don't kill characters without permission. Planned purposes for leaving, necormancy and zombification are perfectly acceptable.
  • Leaving school grounds WILL NOT HAPPEN. Unless there is some big plot in the future that I do not see now, no individual or group will be capable of escaping. And besides, even if they did what good would it make? You're a kid who suddenly has monster powers who isn't even suppose to be heard from for the next four or more years. You're not exactly going to be welcomed or missed.
  • This roleplay is likely going to heavily focus on the transformation aspect of this with planned body horror. The process likely won't be falling asleep for a few minutes and waking up your sparkly vampire dream princess. It's long, gritty, painful, and incredibly ugly. Imagine a mermaid's legs slowly fusing together, the awkward transition between lungs and gills, or an angel slowly growing wings before their bones hollow out, making massive, unsupportable structures on their back. Character torture is only as good as you make it. The transformations should expect to take anywhere from a few hours to a few days to start with the mysterious illness that will likely include a large temperature flux and extreme flu and cold symptoms. After that, the full transformation could take between days and a full month, you choose.
  • On the note of the transformation, I expect some pretty drastic physical changes, but please try not to make anything too sexual. Sure they can become model gorgeous with all the right curves in all the right places, but don't make it crazy dirty to the point it might make someone uncomfortable.
  • Follow all site rules when applicable. I reserve the right to add to or change these rules as I see fit.

Jake swallowed, Im trapped. I don't want to be in this, he thought, his eyes flicking between Olivia, and the boy. He thought we were fighting? Wow. I should get away before I actually get pulled into a conversation. Maybe they wont notice me though. In that case, I should probably find my room. Slowly, Jake inched away, hoping Olivia was too preocupied with the new guy to notice his departure.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

I'd like to apologize for the obcenely long and maybe not very well thought out first post. To sum up:
-Olivia has arrived
-She currently uses crutches. 'The bus' has something to do with them
-She has put her case away in her room, though hasn't really looked at it because priorities
- She has returned to the spot where she saw most peeps her age, and intends to 'properly introduce herself.'

I think that's it. TOODLEOO~

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Sorry about that, life got unexpectedly hectic all at once =-= I had a lab write up, a military history outline, social obligations, obligations with two different organizations I'm part of, a test next week, a group project... -sigh- I wish I could have written more but I might still be out for a bit.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

I've been trying to get Evenir to post, but she seems really busy right now

Re: The Monsters We've Become

I'm just waiting on those who characters are actually interacting with each other.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Is anyone going to post soon? O:

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Hello, I wanted to know if it was still possible to join?

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Started a new job, keeping me busy >>

Will try to post soon.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Well, it was dramatic, that's for sure!

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Bleh, I'm bad at into post.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Re: The Monsters We've Become

That's probably the longest introductory post I've ever written. ._.' Heh.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Shoot it double posted >>

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Mmm, well my plan was to start with pre-week to maybe get some character relations started before things go to hell, but not really linger on it too long. Probably when we time skip it will jump to after the school days unless people want to go through certain classes or lunch periods or anything.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

'Lo - pleased to read you all (I really did enjoy all your character profiles) c:
I'm Alice.

Guess I'll start typing up Dora's first post.

I wish I had that kind of Artistic talent <<. Sadly no, it's just something I found on deviant art.

Also are we starting during Pre-week? I was under the impression that we'd all be at the isolation dorms already.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Hello Hello~ I am Eve, your GM! The first post with Alex is up, so feel free to jump in! I'm not setting a rotation because it tends to slow things down, just a reminder. You're free to use the office lady as you like, and Alex is open for interacion.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Hello :3 I'm Paige. Did you draw David's picture? It's awesome.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

Well, since we've all yet to introduce ourselves >> Hi guys I'm Wake. Been off site for a few months but hopping to get back into things with a fun group! ^^

{EDIT] Also loving everyones characters so far. I'm already trying to figure out what Davids initial attitude towards each is going to be.

Re: The Monsters We've Become

After the fact, they will be attending "school", as expected, but this will include not only typical subjects, but classes more in depth on their species, fighting classes, and other odd things that would attempt to teach them to harness their skills in ways that seem rather battlefield oriented. Studies will be continuous, every student will be subjected to further research at some point, which they are not permitted to refuse. Defects will likely have attempts at correction, but should that prove impossible, they'll likely be locked up, out of sight out of mind, likely for continued experimentation as seen fit.

<< This is probably something I should add to the introduction. I'll try and see if it fits somewhere.
