Stories of spirits, ghosts and of the paranormal are quite common even to this age. It’s not surprising that every school has mysteries haunting every hushed talks and whispers of every student on a daily basis. It’s become a part of the daily lives of students and faculty members that these stories have also been made the butt of every joke or made into a farce by mischievous students to pick on their weaker peers.

In Shichirei Gakuen, this was not the case. Every single person in this school dreads the utterance of such stories, dwelling upon the incidents of the past which had inflated into such great superstition, a taboo amongst them.

“Do not speak ill of the dead,” or “the walls have eyes and the floors have ears” are just two of the many sayings in this school.

Like any other school, Shichirei had started out as an institution hoping to deliver its children to a wonderful future while ensuring they have lived a happy adolescent life before they became adults. Where have they gone wrong? Who was at fault? No one can really say, but all the good, the bad and the ugly things that one could hope for or fear might just happen to you if you enter this High School.

The mysteries which were supposed to be mishaps of the imagination or playful tricks of the light were not the case in Shichirei. For years this plague had been on everyone’s heads as soon as they enter the premises; one comes in, but it’s not a guarantee that they can ever go out.

As the start of the new school year, new unsuspecting and fresh young students begin a new life at Shichirei. Without a single idea about the new world they have come to embark, worrying about teachers or exams should be the least of their worries. For this new beginning, this flourishing journey to High School may just be their withering way to Hell.

RP Setting


Japan, Present Day (2012)

I’m not familiar with the provinces and prefectures in Japan, but in a nutshell, the RP will take place in a peaceful community or town in the outskirts of Tokyo. I wouldn’t say that the area is secluded, but the idea is that the place is, even if it’s already modern day Japan, people around town still have the tendency to be superstitious and hush, hushed.

RP Type


Genre: General; (mainly) Horror, Occult, Mystery
Progression: Story Type RP / GM-Based
Rating: T (13+)- M Rating; explicit contents such as blood and gore may be present.

Rules and Regulations


1) Must create a bio following the standard format provided for this RP in order to be accepted.
2) RP Posts should be no less than a paragraph. One liner-post is not allowed, be creative. A separate discussion thread will be provided for each chapter, so no OOC posts within the main RP. No exemptions.
3) Fighting/Battles is allowed, however any excess shall be cited and if proven to be disturbing or hindering the progression of the RP. Remember to keep it down and no flaming other players. If it’s a personal disagreement, do it over PM.
4) Romance is allowed, but lets not go overboard. Keep it to a minimum of kissing or making out.
5) No God-Modding or Power-Playing. I don't care if your character is the most strongest student in the school. If I see you even try to punch a spirit that's trying to kill you, consider yourself dead. In this RP you use your head, not being rambo and thinking you're Goku.
6) If your character is about to die, you're allowed to use your second chance. Similar to the Borderlands system, you'll have a chance to make a post in order to save your character from certain death or ask another player to come help you with succession being it's a reasonable escape or save. Every player will get one second chance for every ARC that is completed or is rewarded by the GM upon completion on certain special events. Of course this is one of many rewards (Firearms, Buddhist Beads, etc) that can save you when the times comes. If by any chance your character dies, you are allowed to replace your character.
7) To encourage we don't have any deserters in this RP, those who stick through the first ARC will be given special in-game rewards and a high school ID badge to put on your signature. If for some unfortunate reason you are going to be inactive, please let a GM know so we can do something about your character instead of just letting him/her get killed off. If you by chance happen to come back before the RP ends, you'll receive your in-game rewards for the ARC. You can also discuss with the GMs if you feel you deserve your in-game rewards if you come back after the ARC ends.
8) If you read the rules, please write [Paranormal Hunter] on your template.

Notes
:

This is a GM based RP, but there’s no need to wait for every GM post to get everything going. If in doubt, ask any of the GM’s. The progress of the RP lies within the players, GM posts are made to guide the storyline, but everything else (unless crucial to the RP) is player discretion.

In every chapter, different mysteries will be revealed, so if you’re a fan of horror anime and manga, you might see some reference here and there.

In all, I want everyone to enjoy the RP. Let's hope this becomes a great series! Peace!

[Paranormal Hunter]

Just tell me if there's anything I need to change.

Character Name:
Kael Daugherty

Nickname:
None
Age:
17

Height:
6'2"
Build:
Muscular, toned and fit

Student Level:
2nd Grade(Second out of three years)

Physical Description:
If you want someone that stands out, look no further than this guy. Ignoring the height advantage that he has on most people, his skin tends to really set him apart from the rest of the folks. That's because it takes on the typical pale coloring of most Irish. And then you have the hair and eyes. While it doesn't stick out as much as his skin and height, his hair can also stick out a bit. That's because his hair is a deep crimson color that most people don't see. That's because it's one of the only traits that he inherited from his mother, the other being his gray eyes. Otherwise he gets his general appearance from his father. This includes his facial structure in that he tends to keep a relatively stern look about him. It has been known to make a few people back away from him.

Personality:
To look at him, you'd think that he was one of those that hunted down trouble and loved to get into fights. Sure he's intimidating to others, but that's not how he really is. While he doesn't talk much, he does like to be around people. He's never one to start a conflict and is always trying to find a peaceful solution to everything. The only thing is that this doesn't always work out. That's why he has forced himself to learn martial arts so that he may defend himself. This is also why rumors about him being a delinquent has spread around the school. But if you manage to get close to him, you'd find that he's actually quite gentle. The only thing about him that could be considered non-gentle is how he gets when his friends are in trouble. He's always one of the first people to leap into action to defend them.

Outside of his contact with the regular world, he can be a bit of a chatterbox. But that's simply because he tends to talk to his mother most of the time seeing as how she's fluent in his native language English. Other than that it can be noted that he tends to be late for class and often times hungry. That's because he's the type that will give away his own food for others, even stray animals. All-in-all, he's a very gentle giant that makes due with what he can.

History:
Believe it or not, Kael is a native of Japan. That's because his mother was a "military brat" that loved Japan so much that she moved there in her adult life. But what she didn't know at the time was that she was already pregnant with Kael. The pregnancy came as a surprise to her, but she decided to keep the child and raise it on her own. Some time later Kael was born in the heart of Tokyo.

At first things were rough for the single mother. She worked as many jobs as she could just to provide the food and shelter needed for Kael. She finally obtained financial stability around the time that Kael was to start school. The only thing though is that because of the teasing that he went through due to the difference in his appearance she pulled the boy out and began to home-school him. This was all well and good, but she neglected a most crucial lesson plan: how to speak Japanese. Because of this he grew up learning only basic skills thanks to what he was able to catch listening to other people talk. He could still read and write as well as any other person, he just didn't really learn how to speak it.

For the first few years of his school life, this was the case. It wasn't until he was at the age of middle school admittance that he started to venture out. He was soon enrolled into a nearby dojo to learn karate, but that was only an added bonus. Keal primarily used this time to learn as much as he can about the Japanese language. He was rewarded for his efforts at an astonishing pace thanks to his prior knowledge and the fact that the owner of the place was a friend of his mother, so he knew what to expect from Kael. For the next four years this was the case, until his mother grew tired of life in the city. With that in mind she moved to a smaller town on the outskirts of Japan. The only bad thing about this was that Kael was forced to enroll into the local school. He passed the entrance exam easily, but that didn't ease the fear that he would be made fun of again.

Interests:
Anime
Manga
Cooking
Animals

Extra:
Most don't realize that he prepares his own lunches. His mother sucks at cooking.
He is also in charge of all of the cooking and cleaning at his house.

This would depend on circumstance. We only put it up in case something does happen. Likely, the cause of death would be inactivity without notice, but it's just a safety precaution for everyone. But don't worry, we don't intend to kill any PC's. And don't worry, even if you used your second chance, we're generous enough to give more in case of deaths, of course it would still depend on the situation.

Thanks guy for taking interest to this. We'll have the RP up ASAP! x)

[Paranormal Hunter] Izanami, Maria


[FONT=&quot]Nickname: Mari
Age: 16 Years Old

Height: 5 feet 5 inches
Build: Slender

Student Level: Freshman

Physical Description: Born of half Japanese and Italian race, Maria inherited features from both her parents; her luscious raven hair, a hybrid of her genes garnering the soft, silky waves from her mother and the midnight sky hue from her Asian descent. Her eyes, a somber blue of the deep oceans are shaped like cat eyes with full lashes, creating a doll’s eye effect with a tiny beauty mark under her right eye. Slender in built, Amelia takes from her mother’s stature and grace, long-legged and having curves where it should. Fair skinned and enigmatic, Amelia’s outward appearance has the qualities of both mystery and child-like innocence.



[FONT=&quot]---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/FONT]​

- Personality -

Maria is a cheerful and sweet teen who keeps a relatively kind relationship with people around her – at least on the outside. In true retrospect, Maria is arrogant and has an air of strong superiority towards others and will not hesitate to backlash at anyone with a snide remark given the opportunity. She believes that she can toy with anyone as long as she keeps up the polite act, even to the extent of acting like a bombshell dimwit from time to time. A true tsundere to the core, given Maria’s personality she finds it hard to be true to her underlying feelings and masks them with her saccharine smile to refrain others from seeing too much into her. Very strong and opinionated, Maria doesn’t easily back down when her pride is at stake.

[FONT=&quot][FONT=&quot]---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/FONT][/FONT]​

- History -

Maria is the sole daughter of a Shinto Priest and the second and youngest daughter of an Italian novelist in her second marriage. For the first six years of her life, Maria lived with both her parents and her half-brother in the town of Shiromaru where her brother attended Shichirei Gakuen as a first year student. On that year, through a series of incidents concerning her brother had committed suicide in the school grounds on that same year. With the fateful events on their shoulders, Maria’s mother had broken down and had to be confined at a mental institution succeeding her brother’s interment. Distraught and beaten down, the Izanami household decided that Maria should stay at a relative’s for an indefinite period of time in Tokyo.

Before leaving to stay in with her relatives, Maria had to suffer the short end of the stick through the indifferent eyes of their neighbor’s who looked down upon her foreign mother; calling her a psychopath by birth and a disgraced woman among other things. With this sort of humiliation shoved onto six year old Maria, she swore to herself not to let anyone get close enough to know the dark past her family had gone through. While staying at Tokyo, Maria somehow developed the complexities of her personality to save herself the heartache of being shunned and out casted.

Ten years later, before Maria graduated from Middle School, her mother died. Now after long years of separation, she reunites with her old man to live with him back in Shiromaru, ironically, to attend Shichirei and unravel the mysteries from within; or to prove her parents wrong about their conclusion about her brother's death.

[FONT=&quot][FONT=&quot]---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/FONT][/FONT]​


Interests: Growing up, Maria had always wanted to become an idol. She loves watching herself sing and dance in front of the mirror which helped with her outward self-esteem. She loves reading or watching anything about the occult, but only to an extent. Although she grew up in a temple and had been taught by her father about the existence of other entities, Maria strongly refutes his belief and contains herself in the opinion that the occult is only real on media based entertainment and folklore. Reason for that is, with her father being a Shinto Priest and her mother an avid fan of the occult and was said to have the ability of the sixth sense as well as her brother, Maria always felt left out because when “something” happens to pass by and her family begin to discuss it merrily or seriously, she has nothing to contribute and resolved to keep a blind eye whenever spirits or talks of the supernatural came about.

Extra: Maria is a self-proclaimed “Ignostic”, despite her father being a Shinto Priest and her mother a devout Catholic.

Even after months of both physical and mental therpy and Mia still was no where near back to normal, until she found her sister's journal. It told of stories of her school, experinces she was having , and nightmares that were reacurring. Her sister had been trying to find out had been going on in her school, even thought she made it clear that she was scared what she would find.

Great, we have three character's now. Raiden will be posting his character by tomorrow. We've been busy so sorry for the delay. I like the character's so far; they would surely make this RP interesting. I appreciate the initiative guys. I promise I won't fail you!

And I've been thinking of some stories to incorporate each character into the story, so don't be surprised if I drag you into one dark corner you let you into some juicy stuff. ;3

It's fine. I actually liked it~ adds more flair into the mystery. I'm about to post again, Raiden's a bit tied up at the moment but he'll post soon. For this chapter, I'm hoping we can all band up together so we can work as a team for the next one. x)

EDIT: I just noticed it today (yeah, wonderful after days of being posted) I got the title of our RP Thread wrong. It's supposed to be Houkago Kill Time x GHOST STORIES. I unconsciously typed the original name of the RP without noticing. I epic failed this one. I made a blunder. -cries-
