Recruitment post for Valor Battle High

Note: this won't happen until one of my two current games end. So not for a few months at least.

Once, there was a hero, Lilac, who slew many monsters who had been corrupted by malign chi. She ascended to become the greatest hero of all time, even cleaving a possessed mountain in half. Then she went away into the monsters' homeland to take the fight to them, and hasn't been seen since.

But this isn't about her. Some people, impressed by her feats, decided to create a school to train future heroes to become as great as her. They placed it on the site of her greatest feat--right between the cleft mountain's halves. Even though they were told that's a stupid idea and it's out of the way and away from civilization, they preserved. That was a good while ago, and since then a town's sprung up around Lilac High.

You're newcomer students to this school. You train to master the chi that flows through all things, in one or more of multiple methods to access and use it.

The weapon users, wielding powerful weapons that channel chi to perform mighty attacks. Weapons can vary from simple but strong, to highly complex multi-mode trick weapons, to weirder ones like dolls, books, and so on. The common element is that you channel chi through an external object.

The martial artists, who go through harsh training to turn their bodies into chi channels. Using a mixture of mediation techniques, vigorous exercise, acupuncture, a special diet, and other methods, they can do impressive feats with their bodies alone. But many don't make it through the training and switch to another class.

The magicians, who academically study the flow of chi. They use complex formulas and rituals to manipulate chi to do their will. This is a very mentally challenging method, especially doing it in combat situations, and those that manage it tend to be either geniuses or have an intuitive understanding of chi.

The inherent users, who possess an assortment of strange chi anomalies that give them novel and often odd abilities. The one with a living shadow, the one with a manifested book that controls anyone drawn in it, the one who can see the future and faraway places, and so on. While there're cases of people who've achieved inherent abilities, it's difficult and risky so the majority are those born with those chi anomalies.

The nonhumans, who cover a variety of intelligent non-human entities, from vampires to werewolves to fox spirits to ogres and countless other mythological or otherwise unusual creatures. They train in the school to better their mastery of their strange abilities and to develop their combat skills.

And then there're the hybrids, who master more than one school.

Will you step up to the challenge of becoming the greatest hero? Will you brave one of the most notable and challenging battle schools? Will you forge ahead forming friendships and facing the shadows of your own past? Will you deal with the many strange quirks of Lilac High? Will you compete for the best cafeteria food, take part in a tournament or two, face the horrors of the highly unusual field trips, and more?

If you're interested, I just need the following:
* Name and plurk
* Time availability
* Character concept(s).
* Questions?
* Post your favorite hype moment.

NAME Emily [plurk.com profile] deerleisure
AVAILABILITY Basically it needs to be the same day and preferably close to the same time as whatever game of yours this is replacing. Or Saturday.
CONCEPT Robot. Basically my idea is that there's one nation that has, well, really shitty chi abilities. They find it hard to fight off monsters and have developed their technology further to try and even the playing field. My robot represents the culmination of their technological advances, and is being sent to the combat school to gather data which will, in the future, be copied to every subsequent unit to be built.
QUESTIONS okay I said robot but really what is this world's tech level??? would this nation be miles and miles and leagues ahead of everybody else by having a robot, or is this just a small step up from everybody else?

Name: Awe / [plurk.com profile] awestriker
Availability: Currently I'm most open on Friday evenings and Saturdays all day. Even so, I reserve the right to back out if the campaign begins at a time I can't manage it.
Concept: A very shrewd, deal-striking werewolf from a mid-size town. Her parents are hoping not just that this will be an important part of her development as a fighter but also as a lover and will never once forget to ask whether she's dating. She fights as much with contracts with spirits as she does with her teeth, claws, and instinct.
Questions: The details of what exactly being a werewolf entails are at the very least for my character's case up to me, correct?
