Plot

In the modern day life, many things go unnoticed through out the world. These things are all cleverly concealed, holding secrets of the planet. Secrets that are only revealed to the ones who have the power TO reveal them. The world remains oblivious to the underlying society concealed by magic and mystery. This society consists of the wonder that normal humans only dream about. A world filled with wonders that seem to only exist in fairy tales. This world is inhabited by humans who have found ways to harness their life energy to do spectacular things such as magic and skills. The ways to use this life energy were categorized by the technique and ritual they were utilized. These categories of usage were Knights, Wizards, Snipers, Ninjas, Samurai, and many more smaller unclassified groups. Humans who learned to harness their energy to to perform skills specific to their grouping are sent at a young age to the four schools of battle, placed all over the world. These schools are Lancaster - in the green fields of England, Darkhorn - In the frozen Tundra in Nothern Canada, Riomahri - in the dense humid jungles of South America, and Sahri - located in the dry deserts of Africa. These schools each pride themselves on how well they raise their students who grow up to carry covert missions to maintain peace in the world without the knowledge of average humans. At these schools, the students learn to hone their abilities, and how to properly cover their weaknesses and amplify their strengths in order to maintain the balance of the planet. To do so, they are sent on various missions to prove team work and strength and build themselves. But the schools do not teach just to maintain peace...they teach also in order to compete. In times of peace, the four schools of battle meet for the unique competition of pitting their best students against each other in friendly fighting tournaments where high powered people come to see which school is producing the best fighters. The students of these schools are always training and working to prove themselves to their peers and elders alike. Lately though... Darkhorn has been rather reclusive and quiet... it seems like something is astir over there... This is where you come in!

Your Role
You are a first year student at Lancaster: School for battle. It is a college like atmosphere, where you attend daily classes while learning new techniques and making your current ones stronger. Missions are issued to the students in teams of 4 and usually consist of simple tasks such as monster extermination. There will also be various battle exams which you will be given through the years that i will issue randomly and of course. Final Exams which consist of fighting tournaments in the Colosseum.

Classifications
Knight

The knight is generally the least conservative about using life energy. Though they make up for it with the weapons they wield. Their weapons usually consist of, two hand swords, Lance/Spear, shield and sword as the most common. Despite their name, knights do not appear like normal knights of mythology. Most wear thin armor as to not hinder movements, as opposed to the clumsy clanky armor of the far past. Along with the many different kinds of weapons, knights have many different levels of life energy usage. The different classifications of a knight are Rune Knight, which are knights with specific magic branded into their weapons. Each weapon can only hold a specific amount of Runes and more powerful Runes take up more than one slot. There are also Dragon Knights who are bonded with a dragon at birth. The individual's battle strengths are never very strong. But once they achieve the final stage power where they combine with their dragon, their power increases exponentially. But this is a skill for advanced Dragon Knights only. Dragons grow to large sizes but the average size for a dragon our age is about shoulder high max.

Wizard
Clearly the best at utilizing their life energy. The Wizards use their life energy to control and manipulate the forces of nature to their will. Wizards cast these spells with long chants and verses to summon their spells. Wizards can be split into the magics of healing magic, which obviously heals. Dark Magic, which is dangerously damaging magic which consume large amounts of time and chants to unleash. And Elemental Magic which is the harnessing the natures energy and having control over the elements (Water, Fire, Lightning, Wind, Earth, Ice) though not all elemental spells are offensively oriented. Beginning Wizards learn to use two of these at an early age, and can mix the two. The Wizard always carries an amplifier which increases the power of their spells and can be considered their weapon. These are a large array of items, usually containing sentimental value (Necklace, Ring, Wand, small dagger, etc)

Sniper

The Snipers are the few battlers who are restricted to certain weapons. These fighters tend to be mediocre at mid level magics of their element and have impeccable aim. They use their element to amplify their choice of shooting style though their magic tends to become weaker as their shooting distance increases. There are 3 types of Sniper. Crossbow, mid-ranged, and long-ranged. Crossbow tend to have moderately powerful magic that they pack into small arrows that fire very quickly, but tend to be inaccurate. Mid-ranged have the middle of both worlds, carrying a moderately sized bow and arrow and having mediocre magic ability. Long range Snipers carry large over sized bows and rarely are seen in the heart of the battle field. They have small amounts of magical ability for they spent most of their childhood learning to carefully aim their massive bow and arrow to hit targets over 300 meters away.

Ninja

The ninja are the mediocre battlers of the battling community. They are not very physically powerful, and also possess weak grasp of elemental attacks. The ninja rarely has an elemental affinity and uses a very weak, wide variety of elemental techniques, and are mostly for sneaking around and gathering information. This being said, they aren't to be taken lightly in a fight. Their nimble bodies and quick thinking often give them an edge over their opponents one on one and in groups. The ninja often carries an assortment of the given tools but usually not all. Shurikens, Kunai, ninja sword, Nunchaku, Flail, smoke bombs, floor spikes, small grade explosives.

Samurai

The Samurai are people who harnessed their energy and put it towards their swords, style, and technique. They can channel their energy into the swords and deal fast, lethal blows. The Samurai are truly feared since they are so hard to read in battle. No two samurai are ever alike and their techniques can range from long range to short range depending on how they manipulate their weapons. Samurai equipment always consists of a katana. The only real variable is if they decide to use two katana or just one.

*My Signup*
Name: Fenra (Fen) Kurai
Gender: male
Age: 17

Class: Sniper - Long Range
Primary Weapon: Fen carries a long white bow with each side shaped like a pure white angel wing. The edges of the bow or sharpened for emergency close combat. The bow releases a loud booming sound with every arrow fired, due to the sheer size of the bow. His arrows are long and thick for powerful shots from long distances. Because of the loud sound it makes and the shape of the bow... Fen named his bow, Angel's Song.

Elemental Affinity: Wind

Description: Fenra stands about 5'8 and weighs roughly 140 pounds. He has shorter olive green hair with bangs the swoop sideways over his face and has a soft look to it. He has lightly tanned skin and sea blue eyes and a normally happy expression on his face. He wears a tight fitting black t-shirt and brown slim fitted cargo pants. He keeps various supplies inside the pockets of the cargo pants. Under the pants he wears thick black boots with very thick soles so he can maintain grip anywhere he needs to, so he can get the best shot. Along his left arm he has a typical mark of an archer, a thick brown leather arm guard to prevent being bruised by the string of his bow. Fen carries his massive bow, Angel's Song, Vertical on his back and the long arrows it uses, near his waist, tilted slightly to the side for easy access. Fen is a very quick kid as well. His limber build allows him to escape and move fast to a better vantage point, away from one on one combat.

Personality: Fen has mood shifts depending on the scenario. Outside of mission or battles, Fen is a typical kid. He clowns around a lot and tends to be overly sarcastic at times. He enjoys Lancaster and everything about it, especially the girls who he would not hesitate to sit under a tree and watch walk by all day. The cautious nature of his chosen class, leads him to have a very passive and patient persona though. He never feels hurried, and rarely sees a reason to rush things, especially in mission time. However, during missions, he is quite different. Fen tends to be quiet silent, even on radio transmition between team mates. He prefers to tune out all of the chatter and focus on his duty at hand since he only gets 2 maybe 3 shots tops before his location is discovered and has to relocate his sniping position.

Techniques: Right now Fen has 3 techniques, crucial to his Sniping.
Jet stream - Fen uses weak wind magic to slightly bend the air currents, allowing his arrow to more accurately hit its mark

Sonic Boom - The opposite of Jet Stream, the arrow itself is charged with weak wind. It is less accurate but has a wider area of damage.

Whirlwind - Fen spins, sweeping his bow in a wide motion and using weak wind magic which kicks up dust around him providing enough of a cover for him to escape to another sniping point

Additional Information: Fen came to Lancaster, following in his parent's foot steps. They are both accomplished wind masters. His mother, a Wind Sage (powerful witch specializing in Wind) and his father is a powerful Heavy Blade Knight. Both are notable graduates of Lancaster and expect a lot of Fen.

Brad

Sooo... what classes are available...

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 09:50 AM
snap i think we're getting confused... i was thinking power classifications to discuss in here, such as knights, Wizards, and such. when the semester starts in-RP feel free to make up classes that you'll take. simple things like... i'm a sniper so i'll take like Archery 101 or basic Wind Element control... Wizards can take classes like defensive magics and whatnot...be creative :) And in case you didn't see in the RP thread, Brad. Your app is accepted, just make sure to keep his strength in check.

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 11:14 AM
up to how many classes can we take

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 11:21 AM
um keep it within reason, but make it apart of your char's personality. if its in your character's personality to be an over achiever shut in, then you'll have a lot of classes. But a typical schedule of like 3-4 classes maybe only a couple even. its up to you how much free time you want your char to have.

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 11:25 AM
I need 4 becayse of one class for each element, ninja class, dragon class

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 11:28 AM
thats fine, you don't have to directly say what classes you're in right now. You'll be getting a class list in your introduction. and in that, you can say what you signed up for. But if you're unsure about a class then you can just ask about it in here. Thats what the threads for afterall

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 11:32 AM
How do I tell about my dragon

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 11:36 AM
well... if its a physical like pet dragon you can summon... then that wouldn't be a ninja, you'd have to go into the Dragon Knight classification. But if its a symbolic dragon that takes form in your attacks then you don't have to explain it. It'll just be understood that the technique takes the form of a dragon when used.

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 11:39 AM
It's a amulet if it's okay that lets him transform into a dragon

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 11:47 AM
i dunno, i think i'ma have to say no to that since once again... partial dragon transformation is already high level Dragon Knight ability and the ninja isn't meant to be an exceptionally powerful battler at all.

Shadow_Yue

So the minimum of classes is 4 or 3 or 2?

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 11:51 AM
we'll say a minimum of 2 and a max of 6 for courses being taken.

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 11:58 AM
k just to make sure can it amplify my element powers alittle

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 12:02 PM
if you're talking about the amulet, then i'll let it amplify a little. but only on the Dragon Fire technique. I'm trying to make sure the ninjas don't get too out of hand

*EDIT*
I almost forgot but i added a list of the currently enrolled RPers "students" at Lancaster and what type of fighter they are.

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 12:29 PM
k so if it has to deal with dragons I can use it

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 12:30 PM
i'm gonna go with just the flame dragon, not all dragon related techniques quite yet.

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 12:35 PM
k just making sure because later he is going to have lightning dragon barrage

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 12:37 PM
kay, just be sure to keep it within reason. always remember ninjas aren't meant to be the powerful head to head fighters that they are in Naruto

DrazenHayato
December 23rd, 2007, 12:38 PM
i know that is my attack can be used medium to long range

Brad
December 23rd, 2007, 07:50 PM
Hmm... six classes... interesting. That should be fun to make up...

Anyways, my character has 2 t's in his last name, just so you know. I don't really mind- I'm just nitpicky. I mean, it ain't the worst mispelling I've seen. I've been called Matthew Bradleys before. Sorry for being off topic...

My Classes (As a preview, and so I can actually keep track (I have crap for memory))

Advanced Tactics
Advanced Dark Magic
Advanced Swordfighting
Edit: he already knows World History, and Bio and Chem, so he only has 3 classes, instead of 5. In free time, he trains, studies, eats, trains some more, studies, relaxes, and sleeps.

Kansas
December 23rd, 2007, 07:52 PM
lol sorry Brad, i was typin fast when i wrote that, i can fix it. and ideas for classes are fine to post in here. Feel free to discuss them with the other RPers as well. i mean it IS school... we can have some classes together and whatnot

Scarlet Weather
December 24th, 2007, 12:29 AM
Heh... now that I've been accepted I can post Ed's classes:

-Poison and You: Assassination 101
-Think before you act: Advanced Opponent Analysis (He skipped a year *o*)
-Elemental Control 101
-Basic Swordsmanship (for use with katana)
-(Self-taught during sessions with Great-Grandad's diary): Alchemic Engineering

He tends to skip class a lot when he feels like he isn't learning anything that day or there's nothing due. He trades weapons for information on the next day's homework. XD

Kansas
December 24th, 2007, 01:21 AM
seems like a fine course list, ACC.

The RP has officially started for those who haven't seen the Edit.

Shadow_Yue
December 24th, 2007, 06:40 AM
Hikaru only has 3 classes. Cuz she's lazy. :P

Advanced Close Combat
Elemental Control 101
Basic Bombing Course

Yeah... I have to think of a better name for the last one.

ThatInsaneKid
December 24th, 2007, 08:05 AM
Lessee.

I gave Ruroen an Advanced Combat course, a Lightning Control course, and a Basic Defense one.

And also, what sort of shindig is going down in the Colosseum?

EDIT: Oh, and I gave Ruroen a last name.

Kansas
December 24th, 2007, 10:56 AM
the shindig at the Colosseum is the opening ceremonies for the school. sorry i shoulda said something earlier XD

XD Brad, i dunno how much you know about the college course numbering system... but 900 classes are Graduate courses.....and considering you're a first year... i'ma have to ask you to lower it haha nothin big.

ThatInsaneKid
December 24th, 2007, 01:12 PM
Haha. Okay.

And I know nothing about the college course numbering system, too. Haha. :]

Kansas
December 24th, 2007, 01:27 PM
its pretty simple to understand.... basically 95-100 are the beginning courses for below average. 101 is the beginning class. 102-130 are usually the second classes in the topic. 131-240ish are the more advanced classes. then it skips a lot of numbers and the 800/900 range are the Graduate courses.

If you want to make any edits after knowing this info, feel free to do it. I'll be starting the opening ceremonies after the other few make their introductions. If they can't make it in time to make their introductions we can just assume they're running late in the forest and got caught up and they can catch up to the story later.

Brad
December 24th, 2007, 02:35 PM
On missions, we have teams of four. Who is on who's team? And are they permanent?

Kansas
December 24th, 2007, 02:37 PM
teams will be issued at the time of the mission, and the teams vary every time. Although if certain students work well together, they tend to be placed on the same team more frequently

Brad
December 26th, 2007, 10:42 AM
Do we have roommates, because if so, I'll need to edit my two most recent posts.

Kansas
December 26th, 2007, 10:51 AM
you can have a room mate if you want... thats how dorms usually work. But if you want a single room then thats fine.

on another side note... incase you didn't read the OOC, i posted Teacher profiles for the core classes. If you're taking stranger classes that only you're in, make them up yourself or just don't talk about that class.. haha. and uhhh slow down a bit... some of the other RPers can't post as often, i don't want them to quit cause they get left behind.

Brad
December 26th, 2007, 10:54 AM
Aight. I have A TON of free time, so I post as much as I can. I can wait however- yay Super Mario galaxy and GHIII for WII!!!!

Shadow_Yue
December 26th, 2007, 04:37 PM
marksmanship is required for snipers right? XD

I'm so dumb.

Kansas
December 26th, 2007, 04:38 PM
haha its okay, i assumed you had some sort of plan for your char when you didn't have Marksmanship XD you can still add it in if you want.

Shadow_Yue
December 26th, 2007, 05:08 PM
Ok I added it. I switched it with the bombing course.

Scarlet Weather
December 29th, 2007, 06:42 AM
Hmm... you know, I'm randomly going to say something here: since most if not all of our characters seem to posess an iPod, what say that just for fun we post a playlist that we think best matches our character here in the discussion thread? (Not necessarily our favorite music, just music that we think would fit as the background track for our character's life or songs that we think they would like. Ex: I like the Aquabats, but Ed is probably going to be more into something by U2, which would probably fit better anyway since he's Irish).

Actually, I just thought of something. Is anyone here actually from the British Isles? I just realized that due to the setting we're all supposed to be playing characters from that area, so naturally we'd probably be using expressions and turns of phrase more common over there than in the States, where I'm from. (If anyone in here knows any Englishmen in New York, now's the time to tell me.)

Brad
December 29th, 2007, 08:22 AM

Sorry for double post, but I'm worried.

I THINK everyone is on break, but no one has posted for a while, and I'm worried this RPG is going to die. Hopefully, I am not right about this...

Scarlet Weather
January 1st, 2008, 10:14 AM
Don't worry. We're alive, it's just that for one reason or another we aren't posting quite yet. Anyway, here's a quick playlist for Ed, since I didn't give him one in the first post:

-Don't Stand So Close to Me (The Police)
-Ready Steady Go (Best of Fullmetal Alchemist)
-Vertigo (U2)
-I Still Can't Find What I'm Looking For (U2)

Kansas
January 2nd, 2008, 10:50 AM
sorry Brad, the RP is definitely alive but like ACC-M said, i can't post right now for one reason or another so i've asked him to take control of my char for a little bit. we'll be back on track soon enough though

Brad
January 10th, 2008, 04:02 AM
Ah, as you siad, the ring is a bit overpowered. However, is it really possible for a 14 year old to have powere over a ring that conquered Roman armies. The simple answer is no. You will see the plot twist... it won't end up being deus ex machina for ol' Brad... no, it will HURT him...

Kansas
January 10th, 2008, 09:20 AM
ah okay then lol. I really wish the other RPers would come around too... i don't think we can keep this alive on our own

Brad
January 10th, 2008, 09:31 AM
Well, we have a few great options, sir.


Make a bunch of characters that we roleplay as.
PM the others.
Ask others if we can bunny as them.
(Don't want to do this) Shut it down- noooo... my first RP that didn't die AUTOMATICALLY... and it was so good....

Kansas
January 10th, 2008, 09:38 AM
hah ya, i don't want to stop it either.... cause writing the story wasn't nearly as fun as roleplaying the RP based off the story.

i'll PM the others and see if theres still interest

speaking of writing, if you guys want to see how i envisioned the school at first... you can follow the link to the other writings and read the story, I'd like all of your input if possible since you're... well in it.

Midnight_Dragon249
January 11th, 2008, 01:54 PM
D: I'm so sorry for the inactiveness! I've been busy with projects (I still have one for English due next Friday) and other... Elder Scrolls Oblivion... related stuff. I haven't been posting due to fear of "attack of the short post."

And as far as a playlist goes, I don't really listen to 'normal' music, so if I listed one, no one'd probably know what I was talking about. :3

Brad
January 11th, 2008, 03:34 PM
It's aight- I only post so mu8ch cause I have NO LIFE. Whatsoever. No HW, no girlfriend- I'm on my way to live in my parents basement XD

Anyways, here is my take on the original story

Pretty good, Evkay- nice plot, good characters, but you have DEFINITELY improved in your writing. The problem is most of your story is dialouge. ANyways, the plot has also evolved- our current plot has more classes of fighters, and a more structured system. I'd use this to show how kickass your writing has become since that first story

Old Writing- C
New Writing- A
Overall Story- C
New RPG- A

Kansas
January 11th, 2008, 03:53 PM
hah wow someone actually read it. The thing about that, is since i was the only one who reads it, and i wrote it 2 years ago, i wasn't too worried about writing more on top of that. Theres plenty of characters and plot i haven't introduced yet, not to mention I didn't introduce the faculty... theres actually another version of that story that got COMPLETELY out of control haha. anywho, thanks for reading, Brad. I've been quite worried about the balance between the action and the dialog. Its hard to balance it when there isn't other input i suppose. Still debating whether to continue on it or not. *shrugs* oh well.

Midnight, its good to see you're still around :) i've recieved a response from all of the RPers except Electric Hero now. Just a reminder to anyone you know interested, signups are definitely still open.

Brad
January 12th, 2008, 03:05 PM
I posted. The rings draw blood, but as Brad uses it more, he gains more control. Also, who would I socialize with, as I have no classes common classes with anyone.

Scarlet Weather
January 14th, 2008, 04:41 PM
Well, if you don't mind hobnobbing with an Irish ninja then Ed might be available. Maybe Brad wants help in an attempt at getting the rings off because he's afraid that if he relies on them too often they'll kill him so he goes looking for help and randomly bumps into Ed. Ed uses his knowledge of alchemy to figure out what the rings are, exactly, and that triggers a search for the other three in an effort to figure out whether they have something built in that'll help remove Brad's rings. It would also be a moment for humanizing Brad, since so far he's been a bit cocky and we haven't seen his real weaknesses yet. That's one way. There's also Ed's new partnership he'll shortly be forming with Fen to consider, because he won't pass up free advertisement for his weapons and automata.

Brad
January 14th, 2008, 05:15 PM
Hmm... well, Brad may not want them off... maybe he finds Ed. Ed wants the rings. Brad can't give them away, if he tries, the rings start taking blood. Instead, Brad tells Ed of the other rings, which he can use as synthesis material. Due to help, Brad is drawn into the alliance as another member- to find dark synthesis material for weapons/armor. This works because the rings don't come off unless the user dies. Boudica, teh first user, died, so the rings fell off. Therefore, there is no built-in method to take the rings off. However, the new alliance humanizes Brad by putting a large crack in his antisocial shell. i guess you could say the rings are his potential weakness, but that will turn out neutral thanks to new spell Brad finds. We could find Brad's weakness on a mission. Lets not forget albinos ocassionally have medical issues, another weakness.

Scarlet Weather

Eh, thing is that Ed isn't that greedy. He's not the type to want every synthesis material he comes across, especially if it's already been forged into something. Maybe he recognizes the peculiarity of the rings and asks for permission to examine them, and gets the idea that if there are more he can learn something about ancient synthesis by studying them, so he enlists Brad with the promise of finding him a way to get around the blood-loss payment. It would also make Brad a bit less... Dea Ex Machina-'d if Ed is the one to find the cure to the ring's side effect and not Brad. I mean, it was random enough just finding the ring in the first place. 0_o

he's got a solid point, Brad. Whatever the scenario....i'm gonna say we need to tone/nerf/douse your char... whatever you wanna call it. I recommend taking ACC-M's suggestion on this one.

Hmm... well, they can't be taken off... but that would work for me. I mean, I did have a plan... but it'd probably be too uber. Lets go with ACC's plan. Another question: where is everyone else? This is turning into the 3 musketeers here...

Just a shout-out to Brad, but I just researched Boudica on Wiki and danged if your history book wasn't right. Don't go calling her Celtic, though, you'll confuse me. I always thought the Celts were Irish, but apparently there were tribes scattered around Britain. I need to edit my post. 0_o

Should me, you and ACC-M keep it running? Other RPG"s have run on 3 people... I'd like the others to come back, of course, but time runs out on RPG's pretty quick- remember The End- It, The Parasite?

EDIT: Should each of us have more than one character???

we can probably do us 3, i don't see a problem... then when i start the next chapter, maybe more will join and stay active -_-

Brad

Kay. Do we make more characters? Y'know, maybe 2, maybe, although probably not, 3, per person (9 characters at most... pretty good...)

Aight. I have a new plot twist. If you have read up to where the RPG is so far, my guy, Evkay's character, and ACC-M's character are working togehter to find synthesis material and stop my rings from killing me. Then, we go on a quest to find the rings, but we may need more people. Thats where the rest of you may come in. Then, we fight monsters for each ring- Quetzalcoatl for the Junkinta Ring in the Yucatan Peninsula, Fenrir for the Skargnoth Ring in Norway, and Typhon for the Delphi Ring... at Delphi in Greece. Each ring may have something to do with the other schools. Are you interested???

Edit: 2/20

He-llo~? Did this die as well... where are you Kansas... and... ACC-M!!! Come on! Where is everbody??? TIK? Midnight? Shadow Yue? It's lonely being the last one checking teh RPG...
