The Tokken Schooling Program
There exists a school for the brightest boys and girls of their generation. It's doors have been open for a proud hundred years, established with the best of intentions (and incredibly generous donations). The greatest prodigies the country has ever known, all to be placed under one roof. The worlds youngest and most promising mathematicians, musicians, artists, athletes, and inventors: all interacting and working off one another. Thoughts and Hopes in relation to character creation:
Prodigy type: The main focus here is making it varied. I am pulling a little bit from Dangan Ronpa here in the sense that your character can be ANY kind of prodigy. Yes, there are prodigies in art and music, but why CAN'T there be a prodigy in writing, or in baseball, or in fashion? Have fun with it. I want there to be as many different types of prodigies represented as possible. So at least when we start out, I would rather that we get a good mix before doubling up. For example, if we already have one art prodigy who specializes in sculpting, I'd rather we try out some new things before having another art prodigy who specializes in water colors.
Country of Origin: I love the idea of making this game as widespread globally as possible. On that end, I would prefer it if characters come from a wide variety of countries, but their background be just from one. IE: Your character being born in England, but your Mother being Japanese and your Father being American isn't going to fly. I am perfectly fine with multiple characters being from the same country.
Georgette "Gigi" LemaireAge:
Gigi is an extremely shy and nervous sort of girl. She is incredibly shy and is quick to bow down to those with more authority than her, or those who simply possess a louder voice. A big fan of cute and feminine things, she is actually rather cheerful and happy-go-lucky when she gets to do something that she really enjoys. Not used to being around people, the few people who Georgette does manage to befriend have her undying loyalty and gratitude. There is a very real part of Georgette who believes that people are doing her a favor when they are kind to her. Country of Origin:
Gigi discovered an innate ability to read music at an incredibly young age (and in fact learned how to read music before she learned how to read or write). Her parents, upon discovering Gigi's gift, became extremely focused on utilizing her potential. Choosing the violin for her, she started practicing at the age of 5. Most of Gigi's early childhood was spent indoors practicing. They home schooled her, allowing them to focus even more of her time on music. While her parents were never physically abusive, the love they bestowed upon Gigi was always conditional. Whenever she made a mistake or gave a performance that was less than her very best, they expressed disdain and anger towards her. By the time she enters the Academy, she has already toured globally, offering performances everywhere from Shanghai to Vienna. Sexual Preferences:
1. Be respectful to yourself and other players. This is a game. We should be having fun.
2. No god-moding. This is a game with characters who are incredibly gifted in one specific category, but even in that catagory they aren't gods.
3. OOC chat should only take place in the OOC.
4. 1 post a week minimum, but if you need to take a leave of absence just inform the group and its fine
5. Quality writing. I expect a two paragraph minimum. MINIMUM. Other:
The game would start on the first day of the first year of schooling, so most characters would likely not know each other personally. It makes a lot of sense for them to have heard of one another however. They would all have been sought out for the program (there is no way of actually applying. You have to be chosen
) but acceptance is completely voluntary.
