Rockford High: A High School story.
It is the last semester for this school year at Rockford High School, and this year’s senior class is well on its way to graduation, everyone is excited for their own reasons, and time has seemed to fly by. But the year isn’t over yet there are still a few more important moments around the bend, such as the senior class trip, the prom, and a few other things. And the student’s still have the rest of the year to achieve any goals they may not have so far.
Ok so this is my idea for a high school based role play (yeah I can be captain obvious sometimes but ohh well), it will be 100 percent freeform, and I’m looking for it to focus on the interactions between the different characters, and how their last bit of time in high school changes them, set to the backdrop of a senior year that’s winding down. In order to help direct the story I’ve created several ‘characters ‘ to choose from, this doesn’t mean that every aspect of who they are/what they think/look like/ect is drawn out. It’s more of a bunch of rough drafts to be used as guidelines and to help you know if this story is what you’re looking for. Everything not outlined in their little rough draft is 100 percent open to interpretation, and their looks/ethnicity/thoughts ect are at the discretion of whoever wants to play them.
The characters are all detailed below. As far as for how this game will work logistically there will be one thread for each office and this will be used to illustrate special meetings with students/ things that wouldn’t go on in the normal school day like counseling or tutoring after school, or detention. There will also be a main thread which will house just about everything else. The focus of the posting would be in the before classes, and after classes time frames with classes not really posted about due to the fact that it’s just a nightmare to co-ordinate a school schedule via group role play (trust me it is).
Below are the character slots that will be open for this role play, the pictures are NOT what each character has to look like in any way shape or form, they’re just something I hope will get people’s imagination flowing.
underneath each picture is a short description of what the character’s current situation is, that having been said everything else is at the discretion of the player. I’d want at least 2 faculty member characters, and at least 4 students before starting this up. More would be MUCH better. The number of players is limited to the number of slots and the slots are on a first post first serve basis, based on posting of the actual character sheet(not simply posting an interest in playing them). As with all my role plays I have no problem with people playing different sexes as long as they can do so well.
The characters and character sheet is as follows.
He’s unhappily married , and has been working at Rockford High for a quite a few years, he’s seen students come and go, he just wants to keep his school running smoothly and try to be happy. In an effort to try and boost grades he’s offered a raise to the teacher in each department who’s classes have the highest grades for this semester.
New to the school (It’s her fourth year here) she’s quickly become the apple of many of the male students eye, as well as the focus of quite a bit of the male teachers’ “water cooler talk.” She teaches history and is dead set on getting that raise!
The Male Teacher
A member of the teaching staff, he’s been with Rockford High for a while now and knows his way around. He does his best to educate his students, genuinely believing in what he is doing. He teaches history and is also chasing after the promised raise.
The Coach(Male or Female)
One of the more senior members of the staff, a former student of the high school, (he/she) was once the school’s quarterback. (He/She) is paid well because the team has made it to the play offs every year, and has always managed to come out with a winning season. In addition to coaching the team (he/she) also teaches the gym classes, and does (his/her) best to keep his eyes off the students’ bodies.
He is single, and wants to keep everyone in the student body happy and on the track to a good future. This year he wants to try to actually help his students in a way that will make a real difference
The Anti-Social (Female)
She’s not part of the ‘in crowd’ in fact she hates the idea of it, she is perfectly happy to be her own little ‘click’ of one. She wants to survive high school, and maybe make a friend or two during her last semester in Rockford.
The class valedictorian, by far, over the past three and a half years she has managed to get her grades high enough so that it is impossible for her closest competition to catch up, she has been accepted to her 1st choice college, now she wants to try actually having fun in High School
The Quarterback, the most popular of the jocks, he’s been king of high school for three and a half years, but as the year winds down he looks to the future, ready to play ball for the local college on a scholarship, he wants to “live out his last days as king with some style,” and get laid as much as possible.
She’s mean, she has a temper, she knows how to use it, she’s ready to get the hell out of high school, and anyone who messes with her before that happens had better watch out.
The Loner (Male)
He’s stayed below the radar for all of high school, no one knows much about him, or about what he wants.
The Slacker (Female)
She never really put much effort into High School, focusing on her favorite sport instead, she was good at it, she even managed to get a scholarship for it, but the problem is that with her grades the way they are she will not pass high school, and she will lose said scholarship. She’s managed to get every other grade up except history, her one goal is to make sure that she passes it any way she can.
The Teacher's Pet (Female)
For all three year’s she’s been the “teacher’s pet” staying after class to help out, showing up early, and only with one teacher, no one knows why she does it but she does.
The Loner With A Secret(Female) & The Secret(Male)
She made a mistake, a BIG mistake, she’d never been very popular and had secretly hated the popular kids for it. One night two years ago at a party she’d crashed she saw one of the more popular boys, one she’d had a crush on since 6th grade and decided to talk with him, he’d blown her off. So she decided to get even, she spiked his drink with some drugs she’d found in the house. She didn’t know what the drugs were, she had no idea he’d never done any in his life, and she sure as hell had no idea he’d wind up face down in the swimming pool in the basement of the house. His death was declared an accident and life went on as normal for everyone else but his family…except…ever since his funeral she’s been….well haunted by him. Literally, his spirit is constantly around her she’s the only one who can see, feel, or hear him, she just wants to make it through life without anyone finding out. She wants to be free of her secret.
She’s the school slut, she has been since freshman year, everyone knows she is from the students to the teachers, she’s not stupid she just LOVES sex, and she collects conquests like they were trophies. She is going to college, that much is for sure. All that’s left is to have as much fun at Rockford as she can before she leaves.
The Couple (1 Male & 1 Female)
They’re in love, at least that’s what they think. One of them wants to keep the relationship going, he or she) has taken the abstinence vow and wants to keep it, the other one has not and doesn’t want to graduate high school a virgin.
