It's time for school.......

This game will be running with the Mutants & Masterminds 3rd Edition system (Yes, for those who read the Game Planning page, in the end I made a decision feeling that this system would make people more willing to join in).

There is no set limit to the number of people who can apply but it will simply depend on the ability to manage everyone, which may cause a limit to be imposed at some point.

I am looking for 2 Co-GMs (Hopefully), Teachers and Students who can brighten up the school. I have no set image of how the school will be exactly so the sooner you get involved the sooner you can help to shape the school. After all, this school is run for the benefit of looking after its employees and providing an exceptional educational experience for its students.

Almost anything goes for creating a character, though please take note that during the day you are but normal (within the scope of what could be seen as average normality in an anime setting) and during the night your power levels sky rocket giving you access to all sorts of exceptional abilities you wouldn't normally have.

I will be looking to accept Co-GMs first, then the idea is then to prioritise accepting teacher applications over student applications as the Co-GMs and teachers will have a greater influence on setting up the school, forming their departments and coming up with what facilities and equipment they will have access to.

Applications and Rules can be found in the Applications Threadgroup on the forum. Any questions, feel free to ask.

I think this covers everything I need right now.

Game Description:

There are many strange stories of paranormal disturbances and disappearances within the area classified as “The Bermuda Triangle” over many years. However, there is no stranger story than the sudden appearance of a new island 20 years ago. For some unknown reason it has attracted great investment and has become a place of new developments. All sorts of people from across the world have been flocking here to investigate the island and take advantage of the possibilities this island could represent. As people came to this island things started off on a small scale but the population grew and it became nothing more than a big island city home to some of the world’s greatest talents. With this came the development of a huge school at its centre focusing on research & development opportunities as well as education. It is a privately funded school and offers every educational opportunity to those with talent. It is considered a Megaschool due to its size and with its wide array of facilities and labs it caters for all ages and specialisms. Specialists and great talents from across the world have been recruited here.

Now, this may not seem that strange but the rate of growth and development that has taken place on this island is remarkable, though it could just be the result of centralising the greatest talents and minds of this world in one place. Others are uncertain about this theory but still many people are drawn to this island. Whatever is going on it seems to be something major but due to the lack of information coming out of this island it’s hard to know what exactly could be going on.

The School is the 'School of Limitless Possibility', it is a boarding school and it has been called this due to its limitless potential from having recruited the greatest talents from across the world.

So, it's all set in this world on this one island

Obviously something is going on with this island, well here it s.......

During the day the island is a normal place, just like anywhere else in the world, much like how we live our lives every day but in a more anime style setting. At night, due to the location of the island being in the Bermuda Triangle, is when the paranormal disturbances impact upon the island in this world giving people all sorts of crazy abilities and stuff. The students tend to go on the rampage, the teachers struggle to control the situation and all sorts of strange things seem to happen as the island goes out of sync with the rest of the world at night. This means that at night nobody can perform any action that can impat on the rest of the world and only the people on the island will ever be able to see what goes on at night.

However, with all this action going on at night, remember you still have classes to attend and other things to do.

This game will involve players playing as teachers and students. So beware taking things too far or you face the wrath of a player using their authority as a teacher to send you to detention or maybe an even worse punishment.........you may be sent to the Headmaster's Office. Also, if teachers push too hard the students may become even more determined to make your life miserable with all their antics.

And just when you think it's all over, you still have the following night to look forward to.

I like everything but the anime setting part. I may apply as a teacher of the mystic arts at a later date.

So as I understand it it is going to be normal humans by day and supers by night or are people just weirder at night?

I'm thinking of creating either a koi-themed magical girl or a dude that's got to dance throughout the day.

I'm going to bow out since it looks a little too complicated for me.

That's right.

Well, normal(ish) considering what is normal for your average anime type of show because even normal characters can still be a little out there, though you still have your limits.

At night, you get a lot more power, so yep, you become a super and far less limitations.

I have to say your character creation rules could use a bit of clarifying. PL has not been defined, but looking at the points available is looks around PL15-16ish which is POWERFUL. For example as per DCA, Batman is built on 282 points, Superman and Wonder Woman 289, and Darkside 293 point. So 240 points would be PL 16 if you are using 15 points per power level.

I realize you want to make this exciting for the players, but yikes! Good luck with this.

That is correct, at night you are powerful, which is the idea of it, and this is what the creation rules are based on, which is what you will be like at night.

Awesome it's up and its MnM... If I may make a suggestion about game play, I'm currently playing a similar(Ish) Game and what works really well is if you bypas in class game times. In other words RP revolves more around Breaktimes between classes, Lunch times and after school. Another suggestion Im going to make is that all powers that can only be used in the night time get the limited flaw if you do that you can also drop the PL by a level or two if you want.

Either way I'll be applying as a student for now, If you still need a Co I'll give it a bash but I'll need to read the rules a couple more times...
