Introduction


I would like to preface this RP by saying that this is largely inspired by Aphorism, a manga by Kujo Karuna. Square Enix and Yen Press own the publishing rights to the story. Obviously I have nothing to do with any of those things. Reading the manga is not necessary to participating the roleplay, and in fact I would prefer that you didn't so that you don't spoil yourself.

Also, no, using images does not make me a photoshop person, okay? I just wanted a way to use watercolors as a background for text. I tried to find the artists to the different images I have used, but the only one I was able to locate was Jackie Liu. Check her out. She's the creator of the cute fish/ocean watercolor at the top.

IC CHATROOM
Super casual, this RP is for anything that happens not during the Blights. Instead of a continuing flow, the RP sessions that take place here will be dependent on who is online at the time. A bunch of people will likely result in a scene about lunch or P.E., while if only your roommate is online it can just be the two of you. Sign in with your character name and hexcode.


OOC CHATROOM
This place is for all the memes and crap the surface from Hell when I'm not looking. It's really just a space to goof around and bond with other RPers. Use what ever name and color you want. If you join this RP, I will silently judge you if you don't come down here to socialize every once in a while.






CHARACTER NAMES
This is the link to the site and font that used for the character names in the sheets. I also put the link in the coding, but it can't hurt to have it here too (make sure you delete the link before you submit, btw). The image expires after a while, so you'll have to save it to an image hosting site like imgur.


MARY SUE LITMUS TEST
Just wanted to share this really cool test I found online. If you like taking tests for your characters, or think you;d be interested in that sort of thing, you should check it out. Post your score in the OOC if you end up actually doing it!


SPRINGHOLE
Springhole.net is a wonderful website filled with other articles and quizzes like the the Mary Sue test. If you liked the test, or like reading up or things like this, give it a click. It has loads of RPing tips and tricks for character creation, in character, and out of character. Even stuff about romance and shipping, ohoho~...

CONDITIONS
Blights will generally occur in the morning, sometime before lunch. They typically happen at least once a week, but in reality Blights are unpredictable and could theoretically begin any time the sun is out. Bad weather that causes the sky to become overcast will stop a Blight from activating. Because of this, the school sees a decrease in Blight activity during the winter season.


NORMAL TYPES
There are typically three kinds of Blights. Normal Blights are the most common kind, and are the easiest to complete. They draw their power from a random word, and the word determines the nature of the trial. The trail could be anything from fighting monsters, to solving puzzles, to working with others as a team.


TEAM BASED
Every Blight is incredibly dangerous, and students are practically guaranteed to die with each occurrence. When the number of surviving students becomes divisible by three, it will trigger what is called a teamwork Blight. Students are randomly divided into groups of three, and will be transported/teleported to a new dimension to complete the team-based challenge.


POWER WORDS
Some words have more strength than others. Unlike other words, whose challenges can change from year to year, the task presented by a power word will be the same each instance it appears. While all other Blights occur sporadically and have a short time limit, a Blight formed around a power word will happen every day until it's solved. These Blights will also increase in difficulty the longer they go on, and are capable of introducing challenges of a larger scope than normal Blights.

Re: Promises

I AM BACK!! But from the looks of it things are still in progress:/ I hope we don't die out before this even starts! I'd really love to be a part of this role play since the last two I showed interest in died before it even startedTT.TT

@Luna
Not sure if you got my pm or if you're just discussing things with angel but I hope to receive a reply if you can spare me one>.<

@Everyone Else
Also feel free to send me a pm if you want to form a relationship with Chiaki since she would have been at the House for about a year, if I understand correctly.

Re: Promises

I am SO SORRY I have been really busy with projects, graduation, etc. I'll finish my character tonight, I promise. ^.^

Re: Promises

@Angelwolf
Alright will do, sadly I won't be on after today until friday afternoon. I want to focus on my finals but if you really want to discuss their relationships this week I can try to get back on and see.

Re: Promises

I'M HAVING ISSUES WITH MY INTERNET TO WHERE IT'S NOT LETTING ME RESPOND TO PMS, LOG IN, UPDATE MY CHARACTER SHEET OR ANYTHING.

In fact, I'm sending this from a Mcdonald's on my mobile. I'm sorry I haven't been able to connect. Luna is familiar with this issue of mine, and you will have to refer to her for GM things while I'm indisposed. I'll be able to access the page, but for some reason I'm unable to submit information. I am extremely sorry for this, but if it's any consolation it shouldn't last too long. In my experience, it typically goes away within a couple days, so I'll probably (hopefully) be able to log on tomorrow.

Once I'm free to do things, I will sort out the character issues. Polarisbear, I received your PM, and I would like you to discuss your character's past with Luna. It was planned a little differently than what you might think, but if Luna is okay with the changes then I'm cool with that too. About Casta, I had a similar idea, but I will discuss it with you in more detail when I can send PMs.

Unless you have contacted me, when I am finally able to log in with my computer and submit Casta's data I will boot the WIPs (the only exception being those that don't have a set history, as it's likely that that will be changed for plot reasons). So, if you haven't finished your characters, please take advantage of my misfortune and finish them!

Re: Promises

Alrighty guys, three days are up. The two day grace period starts now.

It seems that most of you all messaged me about your characters, so the general consensus is that everyone's pretty busy, but we're all working on it. I'll try to have Casta mostly done by tonight for you all to refer to as an example (not that you need it; the characters are looking lovely), but it probably won't happen. I have a mound of homework and so on to take care of first.

Additionally, once you guys start getting to the point where you're ready to worry about past lives and pre-set relationships with other characters, just shoot me a PM.

Re: Promises

@Polarisbear12 || Actually, I believe it would be Wednesday or whenever the 23rd would be for you due to timezones.

Re: Promises

@angelwolf123
Sorry for me only now asking this would the deadline be Thursday correct?

Re: Promises

Alrighty folks, you all have three days to complete your characters. There will be an additional two day grace period for those who don't have time, and those who have questions or difficulties with FCs. Any character that is not completed by the end of those five days (without giving me a good reason in advance) will be booted from the RP.

Leej, who has not submitted a WIP yet, is the sole exception to this role because she has let me know she is working on her character. Leej, I expect a WIP within three days.

Once all the character are done we'll be working on character relationships during the two day grace period. Due to the nature of the RP, the charts will be pretty important and fun to fill out, heheh.

If any has concerns about the due date, now would be the time to let me know.

Re: Promises

So I went ahead and submitted my WIP although I hate doing that. I'm having a bit of trouble describing her personality and getting imagines that will fit into the Character Sheet without ruining the lay up^^; if there's anything wrong with what I have so far feel free to shoot me a pm.

Re: Promises

Thanks! I really appreciate it!

Re: Promises

@Tales of the Wrath: Polarisbear has just reserved the last available role. If you wish to compete, that'd be ok, but I suspect not! Thank you for your interest in the RP. It is still possible that a role will open up, and I will be sure to PM you if that ever is the case.

Re: Promises

If a female role ever pops up for vacancy or you ever re-do this RP, I'd gladly join.

Re: Promises

ELLO!

Ever, Leej I bid you good tidings~

Just thought I'd stop on by and have a look at this lovely looking role play of yours. And I must say I love it:D

Any who is it too late for me to join? Of not may I reserve the role of Voice of Nature? I've read over the posts in the OOC and am aware that you may conpete for a role. However I am slightly confused as to whether or not the role is open or taken.

Re: Promises

If you have an idea of what sort of personality you're looking for, I might be able to help?

Re: Promises

Ah, thanks to both of you. ^.^
I've been working on the info in MS Word, so I'll get the info into a character sheet sometime later today. (No work tonight, woo hoo!)

Though I do like the FC provided, I don't think he really fits the personality I've started to decide for my character....I think I've found one that might work though, thanks to the sites you've provided. Hopefully it doesn't appear too scattered, I've tried to make the characters/transformations look remotely similar.

[edit]


Ugggghhhhh can't find a good demon-looking one that would work.
This is killing me. Ha.
