Welcome to the MHS! Since I originally attempted to make this idea work, we've been stuck on day one and lost about 60% of our players. So, I think I'll try and ressurect the idea once more. With that said, here's the basic idea of the game. I'm looking for at least half a dozen more characters- humans, elves, any monster or demon that can take human form, basically. If there's anyone interested, I'll make a character thread and we'll use that to list our characters once more.Threads

: Modern with Fantasy elements. High School/Academy scene.Style
: Let's go with NC-H to begin with. If interests show otherwise, we'll change the style.The Plot
: Motley High School was once a well respected school, churning out graduates that went on to great careers and some even to fame and fortune. With the ocean not too far away, merely a mile and a half, with a beach that beckons any and all to visit in the warmer months, and a forest to just about surround it, the school has a great location for being out of the way. Though basically a public school one the outskirts of town at the time, that was nearly thirty years ago. Now, though its basic location hasn't changed, the town has. Sprawling mini-metropolis, with a full-blown bus system and a rival school on the other side of town that is far more advanced and modern, MHS has fallen behind the times. But it was over Summer Break when something... odd, happened. For some reason, roughly half the MHS students were transferred over to the rival school, something that didn't go over well with many friendships forced to break off or become strained as a result of the shift. With few remaining students that are 3rd year students, rumors flew throughout town as construction at the school began.
By the end of Summer Break, new buildings at the MHS were finished. The remaining students were given the option of living at the newly constructed dorms. The school sent out letters to the parents of the remaining students telling them that in order to make ends meet and to upgrade MHS' image, the school had to allow foreign students to come to the school. But who were these foreign students that would be coming to school? Questions were asked, and only vague answers given. Something was up, but as the start of school loomed ever closer, most students began packing their things and moving into the dorms. There, they found that each of them were split up into two-student dorm rooms. But... none of them knew the names of the students that they were forced to room with. Just what had happened to the school that these students grew up in, and what of those that had yet to attend?Main Points
: This is information that human students are not to be made aware of until after the introduction of the new 'foreign' students. The school was revamped completely, kept a secret from parents and students alike that are familiar with MHS. Although the overlying structure is the same, every bit of the school has been fortified with additional strength, some areas have even been armored to better withstand stresses that would come from the inclusion of the new students from another land. In reality, the new students are actually from an adjacent 'dimension'. These new students are most commonly human in appearance, but in actuality are not humans. In fact, they are what most humans call monsters of various sorts, using magic to reshape themselves to look like humans. This is a result of the monster's realm steadily shrinking, losing cohesion and forcing a move of all sorts of once-banished species to return to the human realm. Though this move is involuntary, it was discovered by humans several years ago, and so various governments around the world have been forced to provide them with amnesty. With no cure for the destruction of their home, a slow integration into human society is taking place and schools like these all over the world have been converted to assist with the integration of the 'monsters' and humans as best as possible.The Characters
: They can be just about anything. Monster characters should have two forms- their true form, and their human form. Feel free to use any monster you can think of, but please be considerate about their powers and abilities being too powerful. The supernatural characters may have some sort of ties to the human earth, perhaps familiar or through legends (I leave that to the players of the characters). Human characters may gain abilities through the course of the RP, but should not begin with anything outside the scope of being human unless it is a result of something (experimentation, attempts at magic, curses, etc). Also, by supernaturals, I mean species such as Succubi, Incubi, Imps, Orcs, Trolls, Ogres, Cyclops, Giants, Mermaids, Elves, Dwarves, Centaurs, Yuki-onna, Faerie, etc. Take your pick. You may play as more than one character, and feel free to be a student or a teacher. Tentacle monsters are also available, but not recommended (they probably wouldn't be liked by too many students or faculty, and may have trouble adapting to a bipedal body like a human's). It's all up to you.Basic School Rules
- No exposing true selves in public or in school. Dorm rooms are fine.
- No obvious usage of magic or non-human abilities outside of school classes. This is to keep the school and the human students safe
- Fighting is not allowed.
: Please respond to this thread if you're interested. I don't plan on a system of any sort being involved, so this is basically free form. If you have a character sheet in mind that might work for this RP, feel free to post it here and we can use that as a basis. If not, I'm sure I can have something whipped up quickly enough. Suggestions and comments are welcomed as well, message me or reply here (your choice).
