Note: This story was one that was in progress, with years of writing - it was actually technically my first roleplay, and its origins go back almost 20 years, though with one reset (mostly to convert it from a yuri only group, allowing male characters and a few other changes, after the disappearance of my original partner) and some periods of inactivity over that time. It had been moved here due to the shut down of Yahoo Groups. Unlike the few other times I have brought an idea over from there, this is intended to be a continuing story rather than a reset or open world that lacks a story beyond what the individual characters are going through. You are welcome to join in, and if you do you could try to join the main story, or do something on the side, a minor story in the same setting but largely unconnected to the wider story.
The center of this story is a school, a boarding school isolated in the middle of nowhere, for high school aged students. It is a school that takes in two sorts of students. There is the elite side, this is a combination of the very intelligent as well as students from wealthy/powerful families around the world. It also takes in the violent trouble makers, too difficult to control in other schools. There is a reason for this.
There are several unusual gimmicks at the school. First each student is not only allowed but expected to carry one weapon (optionally two if they are both one handed, essentially melee weapons, guns and such aren't allowed). Students are then expected to resolves conflicts between themselves (or otherwise prove themselves, or establish hierarchy and even just fun sometimes) the duels in an on campus arena, with a judge and audience. The fighting is not to the death, but rather to some other pre-agreed upon condition, such as first blood, ring out or unconsciousness. Another gimmick (and why I brought it here) is that this is essentially a sexual free use campus. Everyone, boys and girls, are not only allowed but expected to sleep around constantly with everyone else and anyone who does not do so is considered especially weird. More details will be provided in the club but the only basic restriction on this are to respect a student's sexuality and some restrictions on incest (cousins are allowed, siblings are officially forbidden but it does still happen sometimes, they are just more discreet about it), also students and teachers are not supposed to be involved with each other, though it can happen.
The last openly known quirk about the school is how it is run. Final decisions on everything come from one or both of two sources, the Headmaster/Headmistress and a Student Council with nearly unlimited power over the campus, as long as they agree on it (which most members love to exploit). Sometimes there is competition/conflict between the Headmaster and Council, but the new Headmaster has chosen to ally himself with them and work together. Of course politics and factions sometimes divide the Council on certain matters, though they are united in protecting their power and everything that comes with it. The Headmaster and many of the Council members are pre-established characters, though there is some room for others to make members (21 members total, 10 of which are potentially open for others to play).
But then behind the scenes there is something much bigger going on. The campus has become the center of a cold war of sorts between the gods themselves. The gods are a pantheon made up specifically for the group, none of them are open to play though there is some potential for characters connected to them in some cases, which will be covered further down. The gods are divided into several factions:
Urbanus: A sort of Satan-equivalent (it literally was Satan in the first version of the story, before the reset and the pantheon was established). He has been trapped in Hell since he rebelled long ago. Recently he managed to partially return, possessing the body of one of he students, while his true body remains trapped below. The students following him are the 'Uomizu Family'. The center of which is a fallen angel; Hanako Uomizu and Urbanus' half-human daughter Su-Chi Uomizu (not her original name, they are married currently, even if only the Uomizu family and Hell accepts the marriage as valid) and various other children that came from some combination of Urbanus, Su-Chi and Hanako (divine children grow very fast). This conflict started last year, when the newly arrived Su-Chi met her father and discovered what she really was. Urbanus quickly established a group of four students that became the Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Su-Chi (death), Hanako (pestilence) and two other students as famine and war. They went on to preform what would be known (to some) as simply 'The Massacre'. Wiping out a section of the girls' dorm (which would then be kept to themselves, and known simply as 'The Uomizu Section') as well as the Courtyard at the center of campus, over one night. The Student Council acted quickly to hide this (hiding most traces, though a faint smell of blood lingers in the courtyard), very few know it happened or believe those few who try to make it known. But the Uomizu family is still known and feared throughout campus, it being understood there is something different and dangerous about them.
Ryouseiku: The new Headmaster is in fact a god, and founder of the school (though using a different name at the time, which he now pretends was his ancestor). Very few are aware of this though. The Student Council are his allies and agents (though only a few of them know what he really is, most just see him as a Headmaster who is much more willing to help him than the Headmistress he recently replaced). He had a later falling out with the gods in Heaven as well, though for different reasons. He wants to be more directly involved with humanity than the hands off approach Heaven has taken after previous troubles. He wants to make them into something more, something better. He was sealed by the power of descendants of four families with angelic blood. He was released ten years ago and has slowly been influencing things on campus. Completely in the shadows, until his recent decision to become Headmaster again. Even before, he had been working with the Council secretly over the last decade and it was with his help they gained the power they have now.
“Heaven”: This a larger group, containing (almost) every other member of the pantheon. Most of them remain in Heaven though. The only one on campus is Maxim, the god of magic. Even he is closer to an observer/advisor. He wants to keep a low a profile and only act if one of the other gods go too far. His main agent is a single girl, Jumi Hanari. She has long been a trouble maker, one of the few voices speaking out against the Council and trying to make people aware of the truth about the Uomizu family and the massacre. She is also a descendant of one of the four divine families and recently became an angel herself. She has/had a few other allies, including an older half-angel, a time traveling daughter from the future and her boyfriend until he disappeared (he was played by someone who stopped writing, there has been a little planning for a potential replacement, but there could be other candidates if other people join).
“Chaos”: The goddess of chaos is the final divine faction. As one would expect, she merely follows her whims, constantly changing who (if anyone) she is helping at any given moment. The other gods know not to trust her and simply appreciate the help when it comes, while knowing it could change at any moment. As one would expect, she does not have many followers, but there are a few and one unusual student in the process of becoming her follower, though s/he (gender bender of the sort that keeps changing) doesn't know it yet.
“Other”: There are a few other groups involved in the conflict with no connection/limited connection to the gods: The primary two being the sorcerer Cult of Zorn (ancient hostility to all gods) and Muneria (a secret society, focused on demon hunting, that are technically followers of the Heavenly gods, though lacking recent interaction with them).
Guess what? It gets even more complicated. I mentioned the time traveling daughter earlier. There are two other time periods we can cover. One in the distant past (that has not been played yet) and one in the future (next generation, which has been played a little):
The Sorcerer War (the past): This is where the Cult of Zorn originates (a few other cults as well, but they did not survive this period) as well as the hands off approach of the gods in Heaven. Thousands of years ago the gods were united, lived on Earth, on a continent that no longer exists (yes, it is a semi-Atlantis equivalent). They established the Kingdom of Zenis there. From there they also colonized, establishing smaller colonies on other continents throughout the world and openly interacting with those that lived outside the colonies. There was peace for a long time but it came to an end when some of the Sorcerers, humans taught great magical power by the gods, rebelled against the gods. The war(s) caused great destruction, many deaths and ultimately the destruction of the Kingdom of Zenis, the continent it was on and the gods going back to Heaven (the origin of Urbanus' rebellion was that he felt humanity needed to be punished much more harshly, if not destroyed for this. He has never forgiven them for the Sorcerer War). By the present sorcery is nearly forgotten (except by the hidden survivors of the Cult of Zorn and taking up sorcery is essentially an unforgivable sin and if discovered is one of the few things that may motivate the gods to act).
The Next Generation/Post Apocalyptic Future: This is a (possible) future that takes place after the cold war between the gods turns hot. The various factions start fighting openly and breeding divine/semi-divine warriors to fill their armies (in addition to angels from Heaven and demons from Hell). Now the world is fought over between the 'The Heaven Legion', 'The House of Uomizu' and The Knights of Ryous. With others just trying to survive or finding more usual groups (such as a secretive fertility cult headed by the previously mentioned gender bender, by now fully devoted to the goddess of chaos and believed by the cult to be a goddess her/himself). For now, the war is in a stalemate, if and when that will change is unknown.
Finally, we have had plenty of fun doing small scale alternate universes. Focusing on specific characters in rather different circumstances. There could be many more, and I am certainly open for suggestions on them for others.
In conclusion this is a very story heavy club but also very very sex heavy (which combined with character ages, is why I chose to bring it here after the Yahoo Groups shutdown). A little care needs to be taken to have content that fits in the universe but as far as things like fetishes, gore, generally dark content in general, there is nothing off limits. There is a lot of material to bring over from the old group. Some of the easier to copy stuff will come over quickly, but how to handle the pre-existing RP writing is something that still has to be determined. I only have most of it in email format currently.
