  1. Ok, I know I said I was gonna wait, but I had a good response and managed to finish one of my two papers ahead of schedule so I can handle this, I'm looking at starting another game. Monster Academy There are three worlds, the World of Monsters, the World of Man, and the World of the Celestials. Integration has always been a big problem. Monster spur great fear from mankind, and Celestials are always seen as messengers from higher powers. Humanity is known for leaping to fairly absurd conclusions and acting impulsively. Some Time ago, the Celestials created their own Elite school to Educate their children on how to behave in the human world, and have enjoyed some success. The Realm of Monsters, led by the Six Monster Lords, is a much darker place. It really isn't safe for humans at all, as many monsters are drawn to the taste of human flesh and blood. That said, a decision was made to create a school along the lines of the Celestial's model. Humans were expressly forbidden at the school, with stiff penalties to be imposed should one be found. For the past century the school has done well, teaching monsters a semblance of self control. Most of the staff at the Academy have lived successfully in the human world, managing to be among the best at hiding in plain sight and being able to be true to their monster selves. There have been problems however. There are monsters that do not feel the need for this, and they only attend school because they are forced. These monsters hate humanity for hunting them, and gladly attack those who would seek coexistence. Character generation This story takes place at the Monster Academy BESM 3rd edition 400 CP You may be any type of monster ( I reserve the right to say no if I feel it's inappropriate) Greater Demons and Celestials will be accepted on a case by case basis. I don't want more than one celestial, as they have their own school and would have to go to this school as a special consideration. No Aliens Possible ideas Dragon (Chromatic for Monster, Metallic for Celestial) Faeries, Centaur, Vampire, were-creature, Kraken, Lamia, Siren, Witch, Succubus, Fox Spirit, Seraphim, Dark Elves, Snow Maiden. Many of these have some base templates as a guide in the book, but you don't have to use them. I am allowing Power Flux, but reserve the right to determine the level(cost) of Minor, Major, or Primal as relates to the game. Witches will be HEAVILY Ostracized by pretty much everyone in the monster world. They're looked down upon as the halfway between Monsters and humans. There are no halfbreeds amongst the PC's This means no half humans, and no mixes of different monsters (I have my reasons) A Single PC (3-4 player) or if there are 5 or more Players, a Pair of PC's may choose to play humans. Humans cannot become another kind of monster. This accounts for them getting the same starting points. Also they can only buy abilities marked with an asterik on page 17 of the core bookto the levels listed on Page 16. The exceptions are Tough, and Energy bonus which are unlimited. Getting found out that you're human is a bad thing. *The Six Monster Lords * You MAY play the children of the Monster Lords, which can explain why you are stronger than most of the monsters there. You don't have to do so. The parent will be of the same type of the Child. These are the types of the Six Monster Lords Dragon example- eastern or western, generally using the ones from D&D as a base Vampire example- Alucard from Helsing, the Vampires from Vampire Knight Were-creature (giving the PC the option of playing the child of this lord, they'll be what the child is) Elemental example- The NineTailed Fox from Naruto is a great example Greater Demon example- Aion or Chrono's true form in Chrno Crusade The Final Monster Lord has not revealed his true nature in a century, as such most living Monsters do not know what he is. You may not play his child. *House Rules* 6,6 always hits and does double damage for PC's 6,6 is auto hit for anything attacking 6,6 auto defense for anything defending 1,1 always misses for attacks 1,1 always fails for power activation 1,1 always hit when rolled for defense Defender always wins reduced to negative HP characters with regeneration regenerate all negative HP in one turn, regardless of how deep they go, so long as they do not die. The use of a healing power on somone in negative heal will always bring them up to at least 0 hp, regardless of how deep into the negatives they are. There is no limit on Tough, or Energy bonus. I am changing their costs to 1 cp per rank. Each rank gives you 10 hp or 10 ep. Regeneration can be used for EP or HP, but must be decided at Character creation, You may have both kinds. I will be using the Spirit Commands from Nexus Earth. Only those in the first post are available at the start of the game. The characters start with 1 additional ones may be purchased independantly for 15 CP each http://www.rpg-post.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/96275/a_new_idea.html#Post96275
  2. Though it was early in the year, things had been changed so that the Juniors would take their Field Trip to Kyoto first, and the Seniors would go after Midterms. It took ten bus to get everyone going on the trip Into Kyoto, each bus carried four faculty members, and two more drove vans carrying another eight faculty each. Still less than sixty faculty, only 20 of them teachers, for 540 students, it was roughly one adult per ten students. Miss Nekomone of course was her club's chaperone, and actually sat with them for the bus ride into the Human world. "Now remember, no one is to use their powers, or their true form for any reason." ,, "This field trip is both a fun experience, and a learning and assessment one for all of you, and us. I want you all to have fun, to see all we can, together, but let's try to have abit less of a rowdy time than we did at the hotsprings." ,, (Everyone is seated around each other, and sadly for Kuro, he's in a cat carrier. What it took to get him in there is evident by the scratches on his sister's hands, and his general displeasure at being treated like a pet. It was however necessary, as once she got him inside, she told him there are springs that might help him..I want to let you all talk some on the ride there, then I'll get you to the hotel, to unpack and then go site-seeing. it is right at 8am when you start, and you've been on the bus an hour.)
  3. The new Term had begun, with everyone moving on to the next grade. Perhaps most surprisingly, they found They would not all be in the same class again, with Miss Nekomone, who'd been tapped to teach Juniors this next school year as Several teachers had elected not to return after the last incident. There was roughly fifteen minutes before class, and the roster according to the computers had changed alot, with some friends moving to other classes. For the most part, the core group had remained though, with some new additions. The class room was still lightly populated, only a few students there, but chief among them was Kyohei, who no one had heard from or seen in the last month. He was once again without a roommate, as the school's population had decreased to just over nine thousand. He looked trim and fit, moreso than normal, and sat with a calm ease, knowing he'd probably have to answer a slew of questions regarding his disappearance, but he smiled. It was good to be back.
  4. Time Frame: Day before Classes: Chapter 8:New Beginings Kyradathea moved around the new dorm rooms that she had moved into, ground level, with a opening on one side of the room that lead outside to the gardens, she had selected this room with careful consideration to her new roommate. It was somewhat more open then her old room, she was not entirely happy with that, but it was worth it for the ease of her dryad friend.. and it was good to have one of her friends so close to where she was keeping her horde. Her many treasures, the horde that she had gathered over her youth was carefully piled up in her own bedroom, and it was quite a horde at this point, some of it gathered over the break and some of it from her christmas break, though not as much as it could be if she hadn’t spent so much time negotiating with the dryads. Diplomacy was not something she was good at, but after her discussion with her father, and the fight with her sister, she knew that she had to be a bit more flexible. The Hina clan had reacted to her... proposal with considerable surprise, but the Elders had been thoughtful after a while.. and she had stayed with them quite a while to learn more of Yuuki’s people, even learning a good deal of basic knowledge of plants with the dryads... not to mention, trying to be a bit more controlled. Classes would be starting tomorrow, but for now, she and Yuuki would have time to settle into their new rooms, and she expected to see the dryad at any point.
  5. Personal Information Name: Murakami Natsuko Nicknames: Natsu-chan Occupation: Student Marital Status: N/A Known Relatives: Asano, the Elemental Lord Allegiance(s): TBD Physical Traits Weight: 122 lbs Height: 5'7" Apparent age: Adolescent Age: 17 Gender: Female Ethnic Background: Japanese (human guise) / Elemental Eye Color: Amber Hair Color: Blue-black Handedness: Right Blood Type: A Appearance (human guise): Natsuko in human form is a relatively tall, slim young woman with an earnest smile, sun-kissed skin, and a luxuriant mane of hair so dark it shimmers with a cool blue luster. Her skin, and indeed the very air around her, is always pleasantly warm. She prefers to dress in feminine clothing, often of a very traditional nature and often in bright colors and elaborate patterns. Powers, Skills, and Personality Known Powers: Natsuko is reported to be capable of flight, utilizing brilliant wings that spring forth from her back with a mental command. She also seems to share the affinity of all her kind for her natural element, and is rumored to sleep on a bed of glowing embers as a form of training. Unlike many of her kin, however, the young fire-born "princess" is purportedly a skilled and attentive healer who utilizes the essence of fire to rekindle waning vigor and vitality. Some have wondered openly (and fruitlessly) whether she is a phoenix in truth, or whether the seeming simply strikes her fancy. Abilities/Special Skills: Natsuko expresses very little interest in the brutality of war, preferring instead to pursue cultural and artistic studies. She is a gifted dancer, and loves learning about the exotic customs and quaint manners of non-elemental beings; the latter gives her ample opportunities to practice diplomacy in preparation for the role she might one day hold as her elder brother's successor. Personality: Despite Natsuko's preference for the healing arts over the martial ones (an eccentricity generally viewed by her family as a moderately tiresome adolescent phase), she is not the serene, retiring priestess of traditional lore. She shares with many other fire-born an inherent passion for life, as well as their love of performance and something of a penchant for the dramatic. She is friendly, earnest, and (both literally and figuratively) warm, possessed of a genial and inclusive spontaneity. Background Natsuko, younger sister of Asano and current heir to his position, has somehow managed to avoid the spotlight so far, and thus the scrutiny to which such a public figure is generally subject. Her lineage is unquestionably legitimate, so the need to suppress a scandal was clearly not an issue, but reports of her whereabouts prior to her enrollment in the academy are nebulous, at best. ,, ,, Miscellanea 18 Feb 2013: +1CP (Making Justin laugh in chat room.)
  6. For Siabhra, the day spent stuck in her natural form only served to reenforce her image as Queen Bitch and Ice Queen. She'd been corraled early on after being caught in an off limits section of the school, and sentenced to the Medical ward, to use what gifts she had to help those injured. There were actually a fair number, though none too seriously injured, mostly bruises, some cuts and bite marks. Whatever crew was out there was doing a good job keeping things under control. After some time though, the injuries worsened, culminating in Arrival of a large snow white wolf, carrying a litter with three younger nekojin, two girls and a boy. They were covered in frost, and frostbite had already looked to be at work. "I need medical assistance now, or these three will not make it." The guttural voice of Kiba, one of the Seniors, and perhaps the most powerful of the school's remaining hengeyokai, wasn't of someone used to being ignored, and his bright yellow eyes zeroed in on Siabhra, imploring her to help these much younger students. He himself was also covered in Frost, thick snow and even some ice hung and melted from his fur. Clearly something was very amiss outside.
  7. The return from Winter break came quickly. For Darrik, It ended his training in the magical Arts, without completion, but at least now, trying to channel both types of mana wouldn't kill him or drain him so badly. For Aria and Eri, they'd found Kiba to be a solid companion, very knowledgable about a variety of topics, and a senior who seemed to be very comfortable around them. Skye and Kuro found that the collar the headmaster fashioned did restore some of his strength and speed, but still left him unable to speak in human tongue. Still They managed to endure the hormone filled nights at the Sokatsu house, and indeed, Kyohei seemed to do what he could to spare them the worst of it. For Katrina, the break was spent with Shizuru, one recovering from mental wounds, the other physical. She trained day and night to strengthen herself as a nekojin at Shizuru's insistence. There were still battles to be fought, and she would be needed. For Yuuki, there was alot of teasing from Haruhana, and of course she and Kyohei still needed to discuss her admission from that night, but at least for now, her aunts and the Elder had agreed to travel to the valley for a stay. Life could go back to what passed for normal. Lumah spent her time becoming acquainted with Ruby, the only witch there powerful enough to truly utilize her, and coming to understand Lumah's truly unique nature Delilah and Kyra spent a great deal of time together, the former educating the latter on many things about city life. More often than not, Kyohei went with them, and while it was plain to see he did favor Delilah, he spent time with Kyra as well. Things had gone remarkably well, all things considered, now, after two weeks, they were heading for finals, and the major crunch time for studying. As everyone waited for class to start, It was intriguing to hear the gossip still coming out of the winter break stories...
  8. Name: Kyradathea (Kyra to non-Dragons) Race: Red Dragon Gender: Female Age: 15 (in dragon equivalent to human years, which is somewhere around 3 or 4 to 1, it varies, Kyra's actually almost 50) Height: 6'3" Weight: 123 lbs Eyes: Green Hair: Red History Kyradathea is the daughter of the Red Dragon Lord Adranthean (Adran to no-dragons), one of the most powerful dragon lords, and Ruler of the Red Dragon Clan, part of the Chromatic Dragon Council, in fact, due to being the most powerful there, he is the ruler of not only red dragons, but all Chromatic Dragons. Kyradathea is his youngest child, by his most recent consort, a beautiful dragoness by the name of Zirathakura (Zira to no-dragons). It can be noted, that dragons use the longer name amoung themselves, but give the shorter name to non-dragons, unless that non-dragon has earned their respect (a difficult prospect). Chromatic dragons are ruled by power, in a system of hierarchy that is based on who is the strongest, craftiest and most powerful. Fortunately for Kyra, a hatchling, is considered outside of this particular system, and may not be challenged (at least not publicly, sometimes in private, particularly powerful ones are challenged and killed by dragons who fear the power they may one day possess.) A dragon is considered a hatchling until his or her 50th year or so. Hatchlings can and will however, challenge one another from time to time, and Kyra has won every such challenge, to the point where she is not challenged by most other hatchlings. This has other dragons concerned about what she'll be like when she matures, and her father is happy that her age keeps her out of dominance challenges, but she's a strong willed and independent young dragon. What's more, recently her power has begun to grow rather rapidly, which has her parents somewhat concerned that one of the other dragons might take the opportunity to eliminate her while they aren't around, and they can't be around 100% of the time. She has also had little contact with any other races other then dragons, and her father has sent her to the monster academy in for a number of reasons, all of which are good ones in his own mind. To temper her, to allow her to grow in power out of the direct sight of many other dragons, to allow her to learn more of the various races in the realm outside of dragons. Personality Kyra is a princess, for all intents and purposes, and is rather arrogant and self-assured, even overconfident at times, and she is beautiful, but it's a sort of dangerous beauty, there is fierceness about her even in her human form. She moves with a dancer's grace, and she's an amazingly capable warrior for her age, as one might expect of a dragon. Despite that, she's loyal to those who earn her trust, respect and friendship. She has a terrible temper with regards to anyone who attempts to take something from her horde, which is actually substatial even though she's still only a hatchling dragon.
  9. Resak didn’t pause as he made his way back out of the girl’s dorm, ignoring the various female demons in various states of disarray. His songbird still rode on his shoulder, and he had one large hand on her ass, holding her in place—while giving her covert squeezes, of course. Resak’s mind was not on anything other than the feel of the female over his shoulder. At the boy’s dorm, Resak took the stairs two at a time, and if any of the others noticed, they were wise enough not to interfere. Resak would have met interference with extreme violence at this point. The goblin prince was beyond wired; he’d passed into a state of mind where if he wasn’t allowed to have sex or violence he was going to snap. Right now, he was choosing sex. Part of him was aware that he wasn’t entirely himself, that while he liked sex and violence, he usually wasn’t pushed into it quite like this. He was cognizant of it—and didn’t care. At his room, he slammed open the door, glaring at the hiding imp. The damn thing watched all the time, and while he didn’t mind so much, it acted like watching him was a victory. Resak didn’t spare long to stare down the demon; he was too eager for what came next. With a smile, the Nibelung slipped his songbird off his shoulder and dropped her lightly on the bed. The young demon reached for the harness that held his weapon and pulled it loose; the heavy axe dropped to the floor as he drew the edge of his shirt over his head. Throughout, he was unaware of the shadow that had followed them from the girl’s dorm.

  11. Aderyn Songbird Personal Information Name: Aderyn Songbird Nicknames: Ade, when male; Ryn, when female. Occupation: Student Marital Status: N/A Known Relatives: Resak Mountain-Killer, formerly Verin (protected), now Verndarin (protector); Laesh, mother (verin of Itakshir Dragon-Bloodied); Korvan, father (verin of Huisak Open-handed); Tornah, younger sibling (verndarin of Shinriki); Jorahn, elder half-sibling by Laesh (verin of Kraeta Sky-Climber); Desann, elder half-sibling by Laesh (verin of Uthvanik Ice-Scarred); Bersah, elder half-sibling by Korvan (verin of Nikshar Storm-Blessed). Allegiance(s): Resak Mountain-Killer Physical Traits Weight: 115 lbs Height: 5'10" Apparent age: Teenager Age: 16 Gender: Most often female, but can become male at will Ethnic Background: Caucasian (human guise) / Songbird Eye Color: Blue-green / Green, blue, and gold Hair Color: Dark blond / Honey hues with blue, green, and gold feathering Handedness: Left Appearance (human guise): Aderyn is beautiful, seeming pure and innocent, in her human guise, whether male or female. Both forms are slender with bright blue-green eyes and fine, soft golden hair. She dresses simply but attractively, favoring shirts and pants that flatter her figure and accentuate lithe curves of her body. Her voice is light and pleasant to listen to. Appearance (true form): As her true self, Aderyn has a crest of beautiful feathers framing her face and her movements are a graceful dance even when only walking or doing mundane tasks like cleaning and cooking. Her skin takes on a golden luster and her eyes become inhumanly intense and flecked with gold. She does not seem to have ears in this form, but doesn't seem to suffer any loss of hearing; her voice becomes even more entrancing, a pleasurable indulgence for anyone in range to hear her. Powers, Skills, and Personality Known Powers: Aderyn can heal with her singing and takes time to help out in the school clinic, especially when arms practice is in full swing or competitions are going on at the school. Although less than a dozen people at the school have ever seen it and so it remains mostly a rumor, she can harm with her voice just as easily as she heals. Abilities/Special Skills: Aderyn is an accomplished performer and cook, both services that she provides to her Verndarin, Resak, and to others if he permits. Personality: Aderyn is usually quiet and congenial, allowing herself to slip into the role of hostess and invisible servant when tending to Resak; when on her own at the Academy, she is still reserved but quite friendly if approached. She is fiercely loyal to her Verndarin and will defend him vehemently against any attack on his reputation or character. She will do the same, though to a lesser extent, for his younger brother, Shinriki. Background When the Wise Woman of the Iron Fangs tribe found she was with child, she and her husband ordered their verin to mate to produce a Songbird child to be their child's verndarin. Songbird pregnancies are shorter by a few months than Nibelung pregnancies, allowing Aderyn to have been born nearly two weeks before Resak, an auspicious sign among both Songbirds and Nibelung for the two infants. Her childhood was fairly typical of a Songbird born to be verndarin to a noble Nibelung child: she had the advantage of living in luxury, but was still Songbird and suffered the whims of her verndarin and his friends. Neither particularly cruel or kind, Resak treated her as a confidante, servant, and personal whipping boy by turns. When Resak's father determined that he would send his son to the Monster Academy, he declared that Aderyn would be left in the Northlands, as Resak would be well-protected at the school and there were questions on how well the Academy would honor the bond between Songbird and Nibelung. Aderyn panicked, well aware of how far her social standing would fall - from near the apex to below the lowest-born Nibelung and Songbirds - if she was left in the Northlands without her Varin. She begged Itakshir to allow her to accompany Resak, and when that proved useless, appealed to Huisak and the close bond the Wise Woman shared with own varin, Laesh. Huisak interceded with her husband and a compromise was reached: Aderyn would attend the school with Resak, so that they were not strangely separated and so that Aderyn could learn what she would need to understand to serve Resak as he grew into his power, but she would declare herself female to school and room in the girl's dorm, so that Resak would have to room with another boy and learn to interact with other monsters. She saw the changes in Resak after the first year, but didn't truly appreciate the new depths of her Varin until the last break from school. Resak and number of other Nibelung noble-borns decided to go hunting in the Little Mountains just south of the Great Glacier. They were hunting wraith beasts, large leonine creatures with pure white fur that made them nearly invisible in the snows - clever and strong prey that would earn the boys a great deal of prestige if they brought one down, and a fine pelt to gift a girl for whoever struck the killing blow - when they awakened an Earth-Child, violent rock elementals that could take an entire tribe to kill if it were an greater Child. The Nibelung children did as they'd always been trained when faced with a foe they could not defeat - they ran and left their Songbirds to die for them. Resak ran until he heard the first Songbird scream, even the snapping of the Songbird's bones sounding like a lyrical accompaniment to the melodic tones of their death-cry. He turned back, unwilling to allow the same fate to fall on Aderyn. It took over an hour and the death of two more Songbirds before he managed to kill the Child, luckily a younger elemental not yet adorned in full mantle but still strong enough to break Resak's arm and leave him with a dozen scars down his side for his efforts. When they returned to the Iron Fangs, the tribe was arming to rescue the son of their chief. Once word spread that Resak had returned - the Earth-Child slain and a half-dozen young Songbirds in tow - he was declared Mountain-Killer and his childhood was officially over. He became the Verndarin and Aderyn his varin, while the other Nibelung were shamed for acting as little children and allowing two Songbirds to die instead of standing with Resak when he turned back. Aderyn had never heard of a Varin ever saving their Songbird verndarin before - sacrifice is what Songbirds are for while Nibelung are still children - and her loyalty to Resak now borders on the fanatical. She works even harder to be a Songbird worthy of a Chief of Chiefs, as she is certain Resak will take that mantle when his father dies and she refuses to ever be a shame to the man that saved her life when all his childhood training should have left her to be crushed and eaten by the Earth-Child.
  12. Personal Information: Name: Resak Mountain-Killer Nicknames: Reese Occupation: Student Marital Status: Umated Known Relatives: Itakshir Dragon-Bloodied (father), Huisak Open-handed (mother), Shinriki (younger brother, at school) Allegiance(s): Nibelung High Chief, Iron Fangs Nibelung Tribe Physical Traits: Weight: 194 lbs Height: 6'5" Apparent age: late teens Age: 16 Gender: Male Ethnic Background: Caucasian (human guise) / Nibelung Tribesman Eye Color: Purple / Yellow-Orange Hair Color: Black / white Handedness: Right Appearance (human guise): Resak is very tall in human guise, though he’s on average for the Nibelung. His human guise is as handsome for a human as his Nibelung appearance is for his people. He is tall and leanly-built, often wearing very casual clothing – when he wears anything at all. His body is marked with the scars and wear of his hard life on the cold northern mountains and seas; each one of them is a story which he will tell if asked. His eyes are a dark purple; they are his best feature and he uses them to effect, distracting, seducing or intimidating in turn. His hair is straight and black, hanging in a simple cut around his face. Appearance (Nibelung guise): In his True Form, Resak is broad and imposing. His skin is a dark green color and his hair stark white, marking him as a higher-level demon. His yellow-orange eyes are as arresting as his human-mask, but they usually only inspire fear. He has pointed ears and a broad, hard face. His Nibelung form represents the faster maturity that his kind reach. Powers, Skills, and Personality Known Powers: Resak is a fighter, like his father and his father’s father, back to the first Higher Nibelung. His hardened skin allows him to strike his opponents with hands that are hard as rock. He has few of the ‘overt’ powers of that other oni possess, but the Nibelung have always focused on fighting. They have long been considered some of Forbesi’s best shock troops. Abilities/Special Skills: Resak can fight in the dark, he’s distressingly fast and he can fight more than one target. He hits hard, pounding his opponents into submission. He runs faster than most animals and is unfazed by the cold. His long years at Monster Academy means that he has quite a bit of knowledge about other demon types. Personality: Resak is the son of the Chief of Chiefs, one of the greatest Nibelung of this era. He was raised with pride in his people and their strength, and he has a definite alpha male mindset. Despite this, he’s been at the Academy since he was ten, and he has learned to adapt to the more 'delicate' environs. Background Resak was born to the Wise Woman of the Iron Fangs tribe. He was birthed on the open snow in the middle of a blizzard, an auspicious sign. His father was the chieftain of the Iron Fangs (and would, by the time Resak was two, would become the Chief of Chiefs) and his mother was the highest status woman. All of this meant that few doubted that Resak would be the next chief. His father, Itakshir, knew that wasn’t guaranteed. Still, he took the chance and arranged for the boy to be sent to the Monster Academy when he was ten. Resak would have the knowledge needed to pass all the tests put before him to be the High Chief. The boy was already battle-worthy at ten, so his physical prowess wasn't in question, and he was Snow-Loved, the unique condition among the Nibelung where cold didn’t hurt him. The boy had the prowess; he just needed the knowledge. Resak hated it at first; it was always too warm and the people were not Nibelung. But when he went home for break, he realized how much he’d grown, just in that time. Resak went back with a more open mind, determined to learn. He wasn't interested in the ‘human schooling’; that he had no need to learn. Instead, he studied the people who he saw - the other monsters. He hid his interest behind a gruff machismo and let people think he was dumb. But there is cunning in his purple eyes, and purpose in what he does. He even made friends, a group of students that he raps with regularly. It seems that Nibelung war chants lend themselves to rap lyrics and rhythms.
  13. Christmas Eve Plates clinked as Darrik was setting up the table for the Christmas dinner. The private one, for him and Jezebelle. Wiping his brow, he reflected that this was at least easier than trying those receipts the TVs beamed in from the Human World. And what does that Paula Deen think, trying to make people comatose or something? But with the Herculean effort of setting up an occasion for his succubus love, and preparing the beautiful hand-crafted necklace - he supposed impossible deeds were the order of the time. Flicker popped up, holding a dark box with a lid not dissimilar to the jewelry cases from the Human World too. "Necklace inside." Darrik looked surprised. "You're helping?" Flicker looked affronted. "I do care for you, Master. And before you go running through it again, the four courses are all made, you've changed, the table's set. Now the hard part is waiting for her." "That's what I was afraid of." Darrik admitted. Flicker did know him this iong. And the imp grinned. "You'll get to make baby Darriks with her tonight, trust me." "That's not the point of this! It's cause I love her!" Darrik snapped, but Flicker clicked his tongue. "Hey, Darrik. I know you honestly do, and she does too. But you've also been wanting to get into her panties or lack thereof... I think since things first got reasonable hot and heavy." Darrik sighed and clapped his hand to his face, an admission of surrender. Flicker put down the box on the counter and laid a gentle hand on Darrik, utterly serious for once. "Relax. Don't second-guess yourself or worry too much. Just trust it goes alright." Darrik nodded, gratefully before Flicker gave him the element of surprise. "And, just my thought, but don't over-over do the bed stuff tonight... or... you know, baby Darriks." "Shaddup, you!" Darrik grabbed a spare cloth napkin and began whipping it at Flicker, who chortled and dived into the shadows. OOC The necklace:

  15. For whatever reasons they had, about half the older students of Yokai Academy didn't go home for Winter break. Darrik of course had a Christmas break alone with Jezebelle. Aria had been told to remain on campus by her Mother, and Eri and Lumah had likewise recieved similar instructions. For Eri, the snow blanketing the ground actually wasn't due to her powers, and made the place feel abit more like Home. Lumah had been given special dispensation to go to the School's vast library and read as she liked by the Headmaster himself. Aoi too had signed off on it, telling her to learn what she could and would. For Aria, it was a time to truly take stock. The last month and a half was calm and quiet, yet on alert for the Shinigami threat that had never reared its head again. She had the room to herself, and indeed much of the campus was deserted. Now was the time to do whatever she wished. Darrik of course had gotten a letter from his grandfather telling him to remain at school, The Valley was in turmoil, and would only dispirit him. Instead he had Jezebel there to keep him company, and of course the Ravenwitch, Rubi had agreed to teach him abit of magic he didn't know, since he'd helped so much before.
  16. *Christmas Eve after midnight, the Sokatsu estate* Hina Yuuki was not an evening person. But after a long day shopping and exploring the human's Tokyo, seeing what they had been taught first hand, she had woken up with a head full of thoughts and no desire to take those thoughts back into her dreams unsettled. So, suitably bundled up, she had padded down the stairs and into the kitchen with the objective of Tea. Opening her mind's ear to help her make her way through the mostly-darkened household had been reflexive, a habitual action more than anything. What was *not* habitual was the distorted fragments of a song no one this side of the Human world-Monster world should know, fragments coming over the sleepy responses from outdoor plants. A song very, very few beings outside of the Hina Valley should know, at least in the last few centuries. The plants were too asleep from cold and darkness to allow Yuuki to determine who was singing, and she had no intention of waking them up now. What she wanted was answers and her Mask fell away in the fires of that desire as she pulled on one of her heavier coats over her robe, green-glowing eyes considering the darkness. The young dryad padded through the grounds towards the voice, unsurprised as she identified the singer as her ever-more-complicated charge Kyohei, frowning a little. The heir had his back to her as she approached, his solo rendition of an ancient version of the Hina Song of Awakening turned into a duet as Yuuki seamlessly joined in once she was close enough to do so without raising her voice.
  17. A short letter had arrived by courier for Kurosoroshimaru, summoning him home on his next break. He was instructed to bring Skye for "Testing" and His sister would be a required presence as well. Noting that Katrina hadn't been to the homelands of the Hengeyokai, Shizuru had gotten permission for her to go as well, her Father signing off on it. The bus that would bring them to the Homelands was waiting patiently, with Shizuka already aboard. Her Father never summoned the children home, except in dire circumstances, and to even permit Skye's presence, well that meant they'd have to be on their toes. Already she was wondering if getting Katrina involved was a bad thing. Still it was done now, and she awaited her students arrival, so that this Christmas Break trip could begin. She'd informed them to pack warmly, though She and her little brother would have little need of it, if it came to it.
  18. It’s said that the Show must go on. This is true., painfully, inexorably true.......... The Headmaster awoke with a Start. Beside his Pillow, a single feather, two small piles of Ash, and a stone of unique striation rest on his pillow. He immediately called out. “Shizuka, Ruby! To me.” Beside them was a note, with his name upon it. In the living room, Shizuka’s eyes snapped open, and she rose up, almost stepping on Eri, who while not asleep, was between Shizuka and where the headmaster was. “Sorry.” He ears and tail were plainly visible, something was decidedly up. --------------------------------------------------- Across the campus, Ruby’s eyes snapped open, beholding her shredded clothing, and the closed doors, and the hengeyokai and Angel asleep on the couch, leaned against each other. She flicked her wrist, crafting a spell to wake them and inform them on where to go, then vanished in a whirlwind of raven feathers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The commotion in the room easily served to wake Yuuki and Kyra, and even a drowsy Lady Aoi rose to the sound of it. “What on earth?” ----------------------------------------------------------------------- In The Guest room that was given to Asano, he nodded looking at the sleeping forms of Jiren, serena, Darrik, and Aria. “Wake up all of you, It is time to start today’s festivities.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For Katrina, arrival on Campus was interesting, in that there were literally thousands of other people with her. Bus after bus arrived, dropping off people of all ages, each and every one, a yokai in disguise. Still she’d been told to present herself to the headmaster’s office by her father, and that everything else would be taken care of afterwards. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ruby's spell went off, The alarm at a decibel guaranteed to wake virtually everyone, and even hurt slightly. Kyohei awoke, finding Delilah in her true form nestled against him, neither of them wearing a shred of clothing. The alarm didn't seem to wake her. This did actually make him blush, since they were in Ruby's home, and likely she and Kuro and Skye were outside. still whatever had happened had healed him, and the dreams he remembered, well, he'd have so see if she was up for that in the real world. He reached out to rub her back and kissed her nose. "Wake up, sleeping beauty. I think we need to get dressed and get back to work." ------------------------------------------------- In shizuka’s apartment, they all felt a massive influx of magical power as Ruby appeared, and then went through the door as though it wasn’t there. Within moments they could hear her gasp, and then the sounds of the door opening, and stifled sobs. The headmaster held the ash in one hand, the feather and the rock in another. Shizuka held the note. “They’re gone.”
  19. *House Rules* 6,6 always hits and does double damage for PC's 6,6 is auto hit for anything attacking 6,6 auto defense for anything defending 1,1 always misses for attacks 1,1 always fails for power activation 1,1 always hit when rolled for defense Defender always wins reduced to negative HP characters with regeneration regenerate all negative HP in one turn, regardless of how deep they go, so long as they do not die. The use of a healing power on somone in negative heal will always bring them up to at least 0 hp, regardless of how deep into the negatives they are. There is no limit on Tough, or Energy bonus. I am changing their costs to 1 cp per rank. Each rank gives you 10 hp or 10 ep. Regeneration can be used for EP or HP, but must be decided at Character creation, You may have both kinds.
  20. Profile: Lumah Hanash <Note: this topic will be updated with relevant information as time goes on.> Height: 5'4" (165 cm) Skin color: Cafe-au-lait (light brown) Eye color: gold Hair color: gold First impressions, Human form: Lumah is strikingly athletic and strong for her size, capable of swift movements, tumbling and feats of acrobatics. Her wavy black hair and unflinching eyes accentuate her light brown skin, her posture and grace carrying with them the mystery of the Arabian Nights. Along her neck and back golden markings of various kinds - delicate like filligree - make her skin a canvas. Some are lines of text in Arabic, Latin, Russian and Chinese; others are sigils and glyphs like those found in mystical texts; others again make no sense at all, as if written in a language long forgotten. Her only jewellery is a thin gold ring on her left hand, engraved with the image of a sleeping snake. While first impressions would make her out to be a studious and passive girl, reality paints a different picture. Two fine lines at her left temple, white in contrast to her dark skin, indicate fine scars from a fight. She sports a similar scar across the bridge of her nose, usually hidden by the glasses. These can be seen only upon close inspection. She would have little difficulty passing for a Human, albeit a bit excentric one. Of course, when the location at hand is a monstrous school for monsters, who knows what hides beneath her skin? On a closer look: Hidden among the glyphson her back is the imagery of chains, locks, and manacles, as if these form a ritual imprisonment. Clothing style: Lumah's clothing style is relatively formal, depending on the occasion. A light shirt and a dark. mid-length pleated skirt are her favorite two-piece, covered with either a dark jacket or a spencer depending on the weather. She's not found without a necktie and long banded socks and simple black shoes, as well as a pair of simple frameless glasses - which she only wears for the effect, since they have no prescription to them. When she's on magical business, she covers her normal clothes with a heavy black robe with a black hood and a shawl, used to cover her eyes or the lower part of her face. The hood is decorated with the imagery of three golden eyes in a pillar. In all cases, she prefers a simple backpack to keep her things and a business-like suiitcase for her "props". Personality: Calmly cheerful, she seems like the kind of girl that could shoulder any burden. But any who observe her longer finds her to have a brooding side, pondering secrets or dark emotions which she hasn't learned how to handle yet. She is quick to offer assistance where it may prove useful, and continuously devours knowledge, facts and tid-bits.
  21. Asano's method of teleportation left everyone feeling a little dry, but it was insanely quick. They arrived within the gymnasium, or at least where it should be. Instead, they found themselves amidst a giant jungle. Giant trees, dense foliage, and all the sounds and smells one would expect greeted them. Asano looked around. "Great, someone left it on Predator mode. The headmaster is really going to have to have a talk with his staff."
  22. Kuro, Skye, Kyohei, Delilah, and Ruby stood in front of the dorms, the black-feathered wings disappearing from Ruby's back as the Teleportation spell vanished. "Alright, I believe the headmaster's correct, there's a sigil in each dorm. Which one do you want to hit first? It is after curfew, and if we get caught it's going to be an issue, especially if Kyohei and Kurosoroshiimaru are there. it will be somewhat less so going into the men's dorm." She sighed. 'It's something of a double standard i know, but it is what it is."
