|2nd Jul 2016, 2:07 AM||The Mystery of Mythos Boarding School. The first in a series of fantasy roleplay. Accepting #1|
Join Date: Jun 2009
You have been born different from humans, be it with simple added features as wings, or a tail...or supernatural powers like the ability to turn invisible, or set things on fire with a simple touch. Unable to safely be around humans, or simply unable to know how to control these powers, your parents/caretaker one day comes to you with an envelope...addressed to you! Inside is a pamphlet of the school, along with a letter.
It's not your fault they were born different, it's not your fault that they don't look like all the other humans around...it's not their fault at all that they have extraordinary powers, or just look different at all. So why should they be punished by being locked away for all of time? Which is why we here at Mythos Boarding School have extended a full scholarship to all those who are just a little different than the humans, come and make friends...learn how to control your powers...even gain extensive knowledge on how to integrate into the human world under guise as a human!
Love, Headmistress Mayhem of Mythos Boarding School
But not everything at Mythos Boarding School is as it seems...evil is lurking in these walls, even the students can feel it. Once inside, who knows what the students will find out about the school.
Hi everyone! I've decided to try something out here, figured no where better than a roleplay forum huh? I have a lot of experience roleplaying, so I whipped this up in a snap for everyone to try out, and hopefully have fun with it. I intend to do a bit of a 'series' roleplay! Which I hope people won't mind... it'll go like this: Anyone can solve the mystery, there is no 'chosen one' or 'special one', everyone will be able to solve it, everyone will be able to have a hand in it, once the mystery is solved, this thread will go on until the end of the 'School year', where in this thread will end, and then a new one will begin with another Prompt, mystery, or theme. People will be encouraged to bring over old characters, or even make entirely new ones!
As always, the rules of the forums apply
This is a Modern Fantasy roleplay, don't change it.
IC drama is encouraged! But don't take anything IC to ooc, and visa versa, just because someones character doesn't like yours, doesn't mean that person doesn't like you oocly, same thing for if you and another person have a spat oocly, if you think it will interfere with your roleplaying with their character, then simply do not address their character at all, if anyone notices, or feels that things go beyond ic conflict, please contact a moderator.
Keep all ooc posts to in brackets, and try to keep ooc posting to a minimum.
To show you have read the rules, please write what your favorite color is and what type (ie primary, secondary, etc.)
This roleplay is meant to be fun and encourage everyone to take part in some way or somehow, regardless of roleplaying ability and so forth. If you are not having fun, or feel like you're not as "good"(which believe me is not even remotely true, everyone roleplays in a different way!) I encourage you to contact me at first notice so that we can talk about how to make it more fun for you!
While not a major rule, please try to keep to a third person perspective( 'she' 'he' 'it' pronouns in place of 'I' 'you' 'me'(unless speaking)), for the simple reason that I am not my character, and you are not your character! Also please bold names of peoples characters you are posting at, that way people can quickly read through and find out if they need to make a post towards your character or not!
Romance is allowed, but limit any romance with the teachers to age 16 and up just to limit creepy factor!
Please have a limit of three characters.
I promise the rules are not made to hamper anyones roleplaying ability, but to keep the roleplay flowing, and fun!

(Not sure if this is still going on but here's my two characters if it is! My favorite color is purple, and it's secondary)
Name: Alexander Gerrildson
Age&School year: 16, 10th grade
Powers: shapeshifting(not into animals)
Personality: Alexander is uncomfortable in his own skin, constantly changing into others. He's very shy, but he hopes that he'll fit in more at Mythos. He's a mostly B student, with occasional A's and C's, and he's hoping that his teachers will understand him changing faces and bodies.
Biography: Alexander was born as a shifter, but his parents didn't tell him until he was 15. He started shifting randomly, against his parents' and his own will, and his parents had to send him off to Mythos, for his safety and theirs.
Appearance: Alexander's appearance varies, but his normal, not shifted form is him with long dark hair, that he constantly keeps out of his eyes by pushing it back. His eyes are a dark brown color. He rarely takes this form, choosing instead to make himself much more 'handsome' when he actually can control his power.
Classes: P. E., magic skills, history, lore
Name: Ace Michaels
Age&School year: 15, 9th grade
Powers: strength at night, flight at night
Personality: Ace is hot tempered, mostly always angry, or having a bad time. She's actually very sensitive, pushing people away before she 'hurts' them
Biography: Ace lived a normal life, except for her father dying when she was 6, right before her brother Thomas(Mas) was born. Ace has another brother, Luke, who is 4 years older, and her mom. Ace moved to a sort of shady town, with a bunch of gangs. It turned out some of the gangs were made entirely of vampires, but Ace didn't realize this until she started showing signs of being a vampire. She accidentally hurt Mas and Luke during a fight with one of the gangs at night, and her mother sent her to Mythos. Ace is half vampire until she kills someone and drinks their blood.
Appearance: Ace has curly dark brown hair, and light blue eyes in her normal form, with slightly bigger 'fangs'. In her vampire form, when she's really angry(not just normal Ace angry), her skin is pale, her eyes are yellow, and her fangs are long. She's very quick to hurt in this form, sometimes feeling controlled by want for blood.
Classes: Philosophy, First aid, Biology, and Survival skills
