Deep in the forests of Transylvania there is a school hidden from the general public. Only a few humans know of it, and fewer are allowed admittance. This is because the school, Dubbed Stowerling Keep, is a school for supernatural creatures. This world knows of these creatures, if only a little as most of them don't associate with the human populace if they can help it. There are exceptions, however. these students are all sent a letter once they reach puberty(since the age differs between races) which admits them to the school through a monorail with hidden entrances and are given a trans-lingual barrier breaking bracelet so as to all understand each other in their mother tongue.
And Headmistress Gaia, has cordially sent you a letter, this very day.
The Races at the school are as follows:
Fairie- excel in Light Magicks. can use both a human and pixie-like form
Demon- excel in Dark Magicks. A misunderstood race that is viewed as evil by most students, when it is simply a bloodline
Tree Sprite- Excel in Plant Magicks. must be watered/hydrated every two days
Light elves- excel in Healing Magicks. A proud race that views itself to be pure and blameless
Dark elves- excel in Illusionary Magicks. A by-product of Dragons and Light Elves Mating. they are viewed as a disgrace by the general populace, including a few teachers, however the Headmistress and Vice Headmaster employ a few, and do not share these sentiments
Lamia- excel in Hypnotism Magicks and (ironically) are amazingly talented chefs. They are cold-blooded and must use heat sources(usually other students) to get warm. there are no males of this species.
Naga- excel in Hypnotism Magicks and (ironically) are amazingly talented chefs. They are cold-blooded and must use heat sources(usually other students) to get warm. these are similar to Lamia, but are completely reptilian with no human features and are native to Japan.
Dragons- excel in transfiguration Magicks (and not just on themselves(vary in size when in true form))
Harpys- excel at speed enhance/dampening Magicks, and their flight abilities are unparalleled
Vampires- excel at no magicks, but can summon familiars. there is a monthly blood drive to allow them a substantial amount of sustenance when at school so they don't feed on unwilling classmates. However, I did say UNWILLING. THESE ARE NOT TWILIGHT VAMPIRES. THINK ALUCARD ON A LESS POWERFUL SCALE.
Werewolves- excel at no specific Magicks, but their strength is unparalleled even when not in wolf form
Centaurs- excel in weaponry usage, and are usually weak magic casters compared to other races. Are the fastest ground bound race to date. Have two stomachs, and therefore eat both human and horse -foods each meal. largest appetite of any race.
Mermaids- excel in water related Magicks, and can breath under water. must be hydrated constantly
Sirens- excel at musical hypnosis, and are carnivorous, be it fish or... other things...
Fire Sprites- excel at fire related magicks, but need to smoke cigarettes instead of drinking liquids and eat coal to sustain themselves
Golems- excel in earth magicks, and can use earth to "build" weapons to use on the battlefield.
Ghouls- excel in ethereal and death related spells of arcane origin. vary in appearance, don't eat anything and, for all intents and purposes, are basically just other monsters that died yet retained the ability to be on the material plane.
Cyclops- excel at modern technology magicks(example: like a technomancer), and keep the school up to date and modernized, but lack depth perception.
Half Breed- excel at whatever the two halves are, but are also weak to more things than a regular race
Celestians- basically a demigod, they excel at foresight magicks and can usually tell you what will happen in the near future, however none of them are 100% accurate. they are weak to physically strong opponents, however they are very evasive in combat.
Humans- if they go to this school, for the most part they have one to three elemental affinities, but nothing extremely powerful. There's a single human teacher at the school, and he seems to be able to stand up to the Vice Headmaster with no issue, though he hasn't been identified as powerful or even seen using magic. This teacher however, has rumors around his origin or powers that keep the more gifted students in line.
Also, a Half Breed doesn't need to be half human. A Naga or Lamia/Mermaid would be considered an electric Eel instead of snake bottom, a demon and fire sprite would be considered a Hellspawn, and Dark elves are the by-product of Dragons and Light Elves, Golems/Harpys are Gargoyles, Cyclops/anything is just a one eyed version of that other creature. a Phoenix has a human esque and is a form of Fire Sprite/Harpy...etc. the other half breed races are up to you to create a race or character that makes sense.
You may have 3 Students per person. I know not all of you will, but for now that is the cap on characters unless we run into too few people to make it interesting
Here is the character sheet template for you to have a look, though I will probably be repostiong the entire post in a character sheet forum post.
Race: Pick ONE PER CHARACTER YOU MAKE. No duplicate Race choices if possible. If someone already picked a race you wanted to be, pick something else unless you just can't let it go.
Gender: This can also be neither, Genderless or non binary depending on which race you choose, just so you are aware, as this is in 2022, when those are still a thing. also this RP is only in near future so I don't have to deal with the coronavirus in-RP
Magic Proficiency: same as above list. only written out for clarity. OR if you want to do a bit of a bio on how they found out
Magic Deficiency: same as above item. DO NOT write "Weapons" here, as even the Celestians are only weak to actual physical attacks, so that means weaponry is a weakness of pretty much everyone. Case and point the Hotel Transylvania quotes, "That thing about the Wooden stakes?" "Yeah well who wouldn't that kill?"
Appearance: I do not care if you use an image or description, though if you use an image, please try to make them semi humanoid.
Bio: a short few paragraphs minimum. If you cannot write a second paragraph for whatever reason, PM me and we'll discuss details.
NOTE: Age, does not matter. this is because each race ages differently so it turns out being pointless, like the Power levels in DBZ. You could be "Over Nine thousaaaaaaaaand" and still be a teenager in the school.
For every hero's adventure, There is a villain wishing they could just be left the hell alone...
For every lovers kiss, There is a woman unjustly turned to tree or stone...
For every act of heroism, There is an Eternity in Hell to someone who could not be saved...
And for every bookworm, There is a book searched for in which this all is craved...
