Far Far Away - A Fairy Tale Boarding School [Bon-Exotic]
« on: August 10, 2010, 04:22:12 AM »
Far Far Away

Far from the rest of the world, and located smack dab in the middle of the far off, and isolated continent of Far Far Away, lays a school. But this isn't just any school, it's home to only the elite, royalty from every kingdom across the land.  Unlike most boarding schools for the creme of society, this one wasn't established in order to teach spoiled children their lessons on history or arithmetic, but instead, it's main function is a sort of finishing school.  The Royal families of Far Far Away send their children to this school when they've reached the age of majority, 19, and they stay until they've either completed all four years, or when they take over the crown themselves.

Such a school is highly regarded, and guarded from commoners and thieves alike.  The gates are tightly shut to everyone but the official emissaries of each students kingdom.  For miles inside the gates, there is nothing but rolling grass, punctuated by stables, and training grounds.  Far Away Castle is huge, towering up towards the sky, long turrets, like fingers reaching into the clouds.  Surrounding the gates of the school, are acres of thick and dangerous forest, the only safe path to travel being the main, and only road, which is wide enough for cars going both ways.  At night the long road is illuminated by lantern like post's that lead the way to and from the school.  Each room is richly furnished, and the living quarters are co-ed, although opposite genders may not share a room.




This is really an interest check, if I get enough people wanting to join and someone willing to at least co-GM with me, than I can really see this getting off the ground. 

I really wanted to play in a game with a boarding school setting, but I didn't want it to be like a high school filled with nothing but teenagers.  Far Away Boarding school is formed more like a college, but the students there will be learning the finishing touches on slaying evil, and becoming a legendary ruler.

The Fairy tale aspect was just a curve ball I wanted to throw in to make it interesting.  The students would be children of the fairy tale greats; like Cinderella and Snow White.  Faculty is accepted also.


List of Fairy Tales

Hans Christian Andersen

The Emperor's New Clothes
The Little Mermaid : Tentatively played by  Online LimitlessNikkie 
The Princess and the Pea

Grimms Fairy Tales

Beauty and the Beast : Tentatively taken by London
Cinderella : Tentatively played by GrapeTootsiePop
Sleeping Beauty
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Frog Prince : Instructor position tentatively taken by RS Mistress

Other Sources

Black Cauldron : Tentatively played by Marie Reynolds
The Black Knight : Tentatively played by BlueEyedBard


Your characters would be your own, even down to the name of the kingdom they come from.  Each Kingdom borders a part of the Schools land, but the school itself lays on none of them, so it's neutral territory.  I like the idea of siblings as well as only children, but again it's up to you what you want.

Setting: Modern with a fairy tale twist

Great!  I didn't think anyone was going to go for this game, since there are already a few fairy tale games up(a fact I didn't notice until after I put up this idea lol)

I hate to think that this idea might not take off because of other fairy tale games. I'm sure more people will want to play.

Well I'm thinking if it doesn't get up off the ground it's because the concept is a bit odd for some people.  I'm sure it's not really because we have a lot of fairy tale games up :D

I wouldn't mind joining to if that's ok. Most of the other fairy tale games don't sound as interesting. I can already think of several characters I would want to play. Now just to decide on student or staff....

Yay for interest!  I should add that staff can technically be from any fairy tale, not just the ones listed.

Sweet! I was hoping to play the man formerly known as the Black Knight, though now he teaches a class on the slaying of evil creatures.

If we get one or two more players interested, than I'll start working on the character template and other things.

I was thinking of playing a staff member. Like the frog princes sister. While she was waiting for her brother to find a princess to kiss him she wrote a self help book on how not to get cursed for life.  She could teach something like etiquette.

Okay, I put some of you up on the list of stories, so people can know what's taken and what's not.

I'm thinking of playing Beauty and the Beast's son.

Your on the list, I can't remember if you wanted a Student or instructor position.

I was thinking of playing a staff member. Like the frog princes sister. While she was waiting for her brother to find a princess to kiss him she wrote a self help book on how not to get cursed for life.  She could teach something like etiquette.

Your idea is awesome, and I have you up.  If you want slots open for your characters brothers children at the school, let us know.

Hmm I think ill play the daugther or Taran and Eilonwy from the Black Cauldron.

Lol tricky tricky, I found this one, I knoww I've seen it, but I can't remember the story very well.  If you'd like to expand on the story here that would be great.

Instructor, formerly known as the Black Knight. Teaching "Slaying of Evil Creatures"

Ooooh I looked for which fairy tale your character is in, but can't find it, let me know where he's from when you can.

Undisclosed, "The Black Knight" isn't necessarily from any particular tale.  He's become a sort of archetype, the "faceless antagonist" that stands opposite the Knight in Shining Armor.

However, most people simply remember the one from Monty Python's The Holy Grail, who gets all his limbs cut off.

~And, before I got sidetracked, I think I might be interested in joining this game as well!

Yeah I was thinking of Monty Python lol.  It's all good, I was just curious, but the idea of him teaching slaying of evil creatures is an awesome idea lol.

Oooh yay!  Student or Instructor?
