User Image.... An infinitesimal, fathomless entity, filled with mystery and endless possibilities for all who reside within its boundless reach. Creatures from other worlds have traveled from planet to planet to fulfill their own intentions, whether they mean well or ill, and many, whether we know it or not, live here on Earth alongside its native residents. It seems that humans, who naturally fear the unknown, are not yet ready to face the truth that they are not alone in this universe. So, in order to fit into society and live peacefully with humans, these creatures keep themselves hidden. Others however don't want to live in harmony, they wish to enslave human kind, or wipe out the race entirely, these beings are why magical creatures are called monsters. But, as with everything else within the universe, there are reasons as to why such relationships between humans and magical, otherworldly creatures exist to this day. There is a legend, a happening that existed before ancient times; There was another civilization, one that was based on magic and many creatures that could harness the different powers magic possessed, but no one knows their true name. One man, called Xenon, was one of the more powerful magic users, joined by four others to form a council of elders called the Ebon Council. He ruled and guided this world of magical creatures, keeping peace, harmony, and equality together with the council. However, his brother, Lo'que, another council member, saw more power in the magic they had. He found that using magic, they could create more powerful beings under their control, and use them to take over other worlds. He called them Daemons, horrible monstrosities with black wings and gruesome faces, and kept his idea a secret, working on creating the perfect Daemon army to present to the council, that way if they refused, he would take over the council, and make an example out of them for all who defied him. Xenon heard of Lo'que’s plans and was dismayed at his brother's ignorance. He was delving into dark magic, forbidden because it was powerful but dangerous and corrupt. Lo'que was blinded by power, and had to be stopped. The council stormed Lo'que’s castle a little too late, the army was ready, large enough to spread out and conquer several worlds in only a day’s time, and perfected as planned. A great war ensued for years and years to come, and in the end Xenon knew he could not win. He called upon an ancient magic to seal away the daemon army, and his brother. With the entire Earth in ruin, and most of its inhabitants massacred, the council had a new job, to keep strengthening the seal, kill any creatures that emerged, and create a new world, free of magic so that this disaster never happened again. The new beings would be called mortals, they had short life spans, and were very frail and weak, because they were new to this land, and needed to grow stronger, and learn to adapt without magic, therefore the council could not help them. It pained them to see their creations suffer, but it had to be done. Overtime the mortals did grow and adapt, and the council was forgotten.

This is where our story begins. The Council's duty has been passed down from generation to generation, the one thing that was not expected however, was that some of the magical creatures of ancient times had also survived and grown by creating their own worlds or surviving on the sundered Earth in secret. The truth is, they are no longer endangered species, and they thrive once more. Some stay in their refuge of their own worlds, still others travel to Earth to help the council protect the world from the Daemon Seal. This is how Swiftwood Academy came to be.

Welcome to Swiftwood Academy!


    Swiftwood's Purpose;

        To teach and train young magical creatures of all kinds to control or find their power; Swiftwood Academy is open to Wizards, Trolls, Pixies, Witches, and any other magical creature both known and unknown to man. As long as students follow the rules and are willing to learn, Swiftwood will continue to teach and train the body and mind.

        To have a battle ready team at a moments notice; With the seal slowly losing it's strength, more and more Daemons are escaping into the world, and as a member of Swiftwood academy it is your job to hunt down and kill them before they cause harm or are discovered by mortals. D.E.M.I.S. (Daemon EliMInation Squads) are groups of randomly selected students who are assigned to seek out and destroy a Daemon outbreak. Different D.E.M.I.S. are put together every day and posted in the main hall of Swiftwood Academy, that way if a Daemon breakout is reported, the school can announce it, along with the chosen D.E.M.I.S. for the day. The D.E.M.I.S. are excused from any classes they miss and are given alternate assignments if needed as they go out with a member of the council to hunt down the rogue Daemons.

        To house magical beings and act as a safehaven; Swiftwood Academy is designed in a way, to keep magical beings away from mortals, and act as unknown protectors. The school staff members are actually the current generation of the Ebon council, which has grown in number since the original five, they preside over the school, ensuring its safety for the students and the world itself.

General Guidelines:

1. Absolutely NO text talk.
2. No god modding.
3. No constant auto dodging/blocking, a few here and there is understandable, but you aren't God.
4. This is a literate RP, Each post must be at least two good sized paragraphs, you can make it longer, just don't write a few pages on one post.
5. Grammar is worth something use periods and such where it goes. Use quotations when talking. Capital letters at the beginning of sentences, italics for thoughts, and spell the best you can. Spell check is great if you have it, so USE IT.
6. Use ((Enter text here)) for OOC, but don't make an OOC post, if you want to do that, post in the OOC thread
7. You can have as many characters as you think you can handle, if you want to stop playing as a character, find a creative or heartwrenching way to kill them off, think of the post as your swan song, don't just say a bear walked in, ate them and left.
8. Please put your character pic in your post, and have some sort of layout, again, this is a literate RP.
9. Do not use ** -- or other symbols to indicate actions. type them out.
10. No fighting in OOC. take it to the PMs. If needed, I will be a mediator.
11. If you have any questions or comments, send a PM to me labeled "Daemons Bane".
12. Please try to be serious in the roleplay. I can understand if your character is kind of goofy, but take the roleplay seriously.
13. Don't make a profile and not post. IT'S RUDE.
14. This is a long term RP, if you know you aren't a Gaia addict who's on nearly everyday, or you aren't the type to commit to roleplays, please severely reconsider this RP. I can completely understand not being able to post often due to limited internet, or being gone for a few days because of a trip, school, or real life events, but no information whatsoever for a month or two after a sudden dissapearence isn't fair for the rest of us.
15. In cordinance with #14, please try to post at least every other day, and again, LET ME KNOW if you will be gone for something.
16. If you know you won't be able to post for a few days, but don't want to be left behind in case things happen, you CAN ask me, Darkie, or a friend to have them control your character. Better yet, if you have a means of posting through them, you may do so.
17. Cursing is allowed, but don't swear in between every word your character says. And absolutely no going Nostalgia Critic longest insult ever, because there are children on this site. o-o So please, nothing utterly vulgur and disgusting.
18. Create your Profiles on a Test Forum and send me or Darkie the link, once she or I approve you may go ahead and start posting.
19. Romance is encouraged, but not above pg-16. Once the clothes start dropping, time skip. Don't get me banned please. Hasn't happened yet, and I don't ever want it to.
20. If I change/add/delete any rules, I will announce it in the roleplay using OOC.
22. Give yourself a pat on the back for reading the rules so far, and somewhere in your PM to me or Darkie with a link to your Profile put Brown Peanut Koffuzels to let me know that you read them.
24. Some violence and rivals are encouraged, but for the love of Arceus, DON'T JUST RANDOMLY KILL OFF OTHER PEOPLES CHARACTERS! You MUST have their permission to do so.
25. Me and Darkie Ramirez Werepyre are the Co Head Mistresses of Swiftwood Academy, Kane-the-Racoon is the Banhammer Happy Rule Enforcer, (We can only hold him off for so long D: ) So please, follow all of these rules and do as we say, and everyone will be juuust fine and dandy. :3


Now! Onto the more RP specific Rules!



Explaination of Years:

The year you're in is quite literally how many years you've been going to Swiftwood. Other factors such as age, experience, or knowlege do not determine your year. Swiftwood will house you and train you for 8 years and not any longer unless you wish to become a permanent guardian of the seal.

DEMI Rules

The Daemons that escape through the seal will be treated like NPCs, however, in order to prevent god modding from other RPers, there are some rules to follow. First; Darkie and I will be controlling their actions through making posts with them in order to keep things more interesting when battling. Each Daemon or Daemon group will have a rank number, the higher the number, the harder it is to kill by less experienced students.
      
The list of students put in a DEMI group for the day will be put up at the time skip at the begining of each new day.

Here is the schedule for each year of students;
                 
User Image

To determine your schedule look for your student's year up at the top, then go down the column and your period number will be listed for each class. for instance; 3rd Years have Potions 2nd period, History of magic 8th period, Lunch 4th, Combat 5th, and so on.


Miscellaneous; This class, as it's name infers, is ever changing. Basically the class is a composition of various subjects that students will need to know or learn about but are far too short of a subject to be a class itself all year long.
They include learning different languages, astronomy (not the kind you're thinking of)  learning magic such as fortune telling, magical traps/barriers, etc. Archaeology, rune inspecting, and much more. 



Study Hall; Basically a free period for all students. It is meant to be a time where students go back to their dorms and work on homework or study, but most use it as a time to relax, sleep in, or hang out with friends. However if students get caught outside of their dorms by teachers then they will be punished. 

Cafeteria: The way the cafeteria works is not like your ordinary lunch room, you simply ask the plate for your meal and it appears. Make sure to be specific or it won't give you everything you wanted!

The monster log is an organized list of known Daemons, ranked from lowest to highest in difficulty and a short description of their individual powers.


Grunts:


      User Image Shadows:

      The lowest of the low, these little bat like creatures attack in swarms due to their lack of magical ability. Their physical attacks are fairly weak, often involving scratching, and head-butts. They have wings and fly around to avoid hits, but are particularly annoying because when the swarm is in danger of being exterminated, they meld together to create a Greater Shadow. Because they often move in a group, wide range attacks are most effective on Shadows, killing several at a time before they get the chance to meld together.

      User Image Balboas:

      Balboas are minor magicians who float around midair and shoot elemental spells from a safe distance away. They always charge before shooting off a spell, and the longer they are able to charge the spell, the more powerful it becomes. They have little to no defense whatsoever and if you are able to get a hit on them they will die more often than not.

Lieutenants:


      User Image Greater Shadows:

      Greater Shadows are globules of normal Shadows melded together, basically a stronger, sturdier, more powerful, and harder to kill shadow. However, its still possesses no magic, making it the lowest ranked lieutenant.

      Spinnekops:

      Spinnekops are the main casters of the lieutenants; They stand behind the lines and shoot simple elemental spells. Keep an eye out for their web traps, they will shoot them at anyone who comes near, ensnaring them in sticky and strong webbing to prevent them from coming any closer. Often after trapping Spinnekops will hit the closest person to them with magic to kill them before they broke free of the webs. Unless your weapon is made of an unstickable material, if you try to cut the webbing it will just trap your weapon too.

      Web Weaknesses: Fire, anti stick substances.

      Nightmeras:

      The daemon twisted version of a chimera. These fire breathing lizards are very tough, molten armor plated powerhouses, but they are very slow moving physically. They can use a lava spout to spew lava from their mouth for a long period of time, or shoot fire balls. The fire balls they shoot are extremely fast in comparison to their slow body movements.

      User Image Tarragon

      Tarragon is a wingless, raging earth dragon, who seems set on obliterating everything in his path. From head to tail tip this massive beast is three times the height of Swiftwood Academy, and it's muscle mass is about the same in comparison. His powers include causing minor earthquakes in the surrounding area, and summoning up spiked pillars of earth that can impale you if you don't get out of the way. Due to his large size Tarragon is also quite slow, but his physical attacks hit hard if you aren't paying attention to his movements. He has been known to always escape back into the portal when he gets overwhelmed so he can regain his strength and come back again another day, thus his face is very familiar to the Ebon council.

Announcements

Again, the RP will open on August 21st, HOWEVER, I will be making the first post to start everything off. You will know when it comes, for it will be quite obvious due to the fact that it will be mine and it will be the first post on the second page. That post will be the 'Okay' to start posting.

I'm so excited to finally get this show on the road and I know you all are as well, so I hope this RP lasts as long as I hope it will; until the very end of the storyline. And who knows? Maybe even further... If I can make up another threat to the world. >:3


If you've noticed this announcements page, you've also probably noticed the rest of the new additions I've made to the front page; An FAQ section, a calendar, weather, time, and period section, the DEMIS section, a monster log section (Which will be filled more later), and this announcement section. It is not required, but I would highly suggest constantly checking the front page of this RP as we move along, seeing as it has all this nice information for you to help with minor detail in your posting, answering any questions you might have, etc.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


A lot of these are either things people did that I didn't like in my other rps, or things I have already stated in the rules but feel they are importiant so I put them here so you read them again, but otherwise if you ever have a question about things you can or cannot do, before you PM me with your question, look over this list first, chances are you may find the answer here.

The questions are broken down into categories,so look for your catagory, then look for your question. This section will be updated constantly, so just because you don't remember seeing your question last time you checked here doesn't mean it's still not there.

New Characters:


      Q. Can I make up a new species entirely? Even if it's Not listed in the Skeleton?

      A. Yes!!! In fact, I highly encourage the use of your imagination. Go wild, make up a name, a planet, what the species does, go wild!

      Q. Can I have more than one Magic Specialty?

      A. It depends honestly. I am open to your character having more than one magic specialty, but remember; Evey action has an equal and opposite reaction, so the more specialties your character has, the less talented they should be at using them. That doesn't mean your character should suck at using magic if they know a large variety of spells, but compared to a master of a specific type of magic your character should be less powerful than they are in that section of magic. There are sometimes exceptions to this rule, however I will be the one to make the decision on that.

      Q. Can my character specialize in time/light/dark/shadow/psychic magic?

      A. My issue with this question: Most of the time I don't know your RPing habits and how good you are at not being god-modish with certain powers and abilities. Examples of easily god-modish powers would be Light, Shadow/Dark, Psychic, and Time powers/magic. I either need to see some serious limitations on the use of these powers if you are absolutely determined to have them, or you need to pick a new magic specialization. Now, there also comes the question of if you can create a species that has some racial abilities that involve the use of these types of powers, my answer will be exactly the same, serious limitations or no bueno. (Spainish for not okay for all you non spainish speaking people out there. :b )

      Serious limitations include at least one of the following; Time limit, time between usage limit, a very weak form of the power, specific weak abilities, for example Rowena, the Miscellaneous class teacher, has a racial ability of premonition, telepathy, and the ability to move objects with her mind, all of which are very weak, but well known psychic abilities. Those types of abilities are always perfectly fine to have. Rowena also has the ability to move in and out of dimensions, this can be extremely useful however also extremely god modish, so I made her have no control of the ability whatsoever. This brings me to the next problem I have with he concept of the big god mod four; Just because people put limitations on those abilities, doesnt always mean they actually stay true to their word, and that is one of my biggest pet peeves. If you put limitations on a huge god mod ability, and I approve it, then you turn around and basically ignore all the limitations you set, I swear to goodness you will be removed from the RP faster than you can say oops. No. Just.... No. I trust Darkie with tRowenas type of character, I RP with her constantly, and I know she will actually play the inconveniences of Rowena having no control of her dimension hopping, but I haven't rped with most of ou. I will approve the profile once the limitations are set, and watch to see how well you play them.

      I know most of that sounded really scary, but don't be afraid to make that type of character, and don't be afraid to use the big power boost as long as you stay true to the limits. If they can ooh use the power every five ours, make sure that ou don't use it again for abut five hours RP time. If they get severely weak after using it, make them pass out for a bit. As long as you don't do anything totally ridiculous I will be fine. All this is, is common sense. Great power and great responsibility etc etc.

      Q. Can I make a character that is new to Swiftwood, but not a first year?

      A. Yes, but, you must have a good reason for this, such as transferring from another magic school similar to Swiftwood, or already having some education from home, or being already extremely intelligent, talented in all things Swiftwood teaches etc. 

      Q. Can I make a student that doesn't have a magic specialization?

      A. Yes, in fact this is common with first year students or students who have little to no magical experience. However, it is Swiftwood's job to help students find their potential, so in theory, no student should go for too long without finding their magic specialization. However special cases have been heard of true potential developing only at a certain age in different species. Again, feel free to talk to me and we will work out the circumstances.

      Q. The dorm room for (insert year here) (insert gender here) is filled up, can I still make a (year) (gender)?

      A. No. If the dorm is filled up that means you cannot make a character of theat particular combination of year and gender. When all the dorms of all the years are filled then we may add more spaces, but it is not likely.

      Q. How many characters can I make?

      A. You can make as many characters as you are comfortable handling. Don't go and make six characters if you've never juggled even three characters before.


Class Time Basics:



      Q. I'm bored of this period and have done everything I can think of that I want to do, and everyone else is still posting, can I make it the next period?

      A. Absolutely not. Any posts that have any indication that you have "moved on" to another point in the timeline of the RP that the rest of the rpers have not moved on to is strictly prohibited. When Darkie and I are on, we will try our best to make sure everyone has something to do, as will anyone who is playing as a teacher. We will also make sure we don't stay too long in one period over all the others so that people don't get completely bored. However, Darkie and myself, and ONLY the two of us, have the power to announce in the overhead that it is time to change periods. We are the headmistresses after all, and you are running on our school schedule. If we haven't changed the period and everyone else is doing something except for you, theres a good chance that you haven't done everything yet, or you've done too little. The problem is if every student moves on to the next period whenever they get bored without our permission, then everyone is in a different part of the rp's timeline and it gets really confusing, really fast. I can't have that kind of chaos in this rp, so it's not like I'm trying to make you bored, I have a good reason to keep us all on a schedule.

      Q. My Character is done with the schoolwork, can they be excused from the class?

      A. This really depends on the class. If your character has a good reason for wanting to really do all of their classwork really fast (i.e. they're meeting someone outside of class or they really dislike the class because it's their most hated subject etc.) then yes, you can work that in, BUT, I am going to require that you at LEAST make two posts about what you are doing in class, have your student interact with the teacher or fellow students around them, do the classwork, etc. Then after those two posts are finished, the next post you make can involve your student asking the teacher to be excused. You MUST ask the teacher before leaving the classroom, unless you preplanned that your character is doing it on purpose and you know that they will get in trouble for it etc, because anyone who plays as the teachers will get briefed on that rule. If your character doesn't ask before leaving, I have given the teachers complete permission to totally embarrass your character and get creative when it comes to dragging their butt back to class. >:3




Teacher Questions:



      Q. I don't come on gaia very often, once a week tops, is it okay if I still apply for a teacher position?

      A. No. I'm sorry but the teacher roles are very important. We need people who are only on gaia constantly to play them. If I have to take control of the teachers for 6 days of the week because you aren't on and everyone else in that class is waiting on you, I may as well do the whole week. I also would highly suggest that you not play as a student either if you aren't on often because this RP will go by fast when everyone is online doing their part, and you will get left behind. It's annoying and I know what it feels like, and there's no point in putting yourself through it. If you really, truly don't mind being a student and missing out on a lot, then talk to me, and we'll see if we can work something out, however there is no way around it when it comes to teachers. You cannot play as a teacher if you aren't on nearly everyday, and if you don't bring up this issue at the start, get accepted by me, show up one day and then disappear for the next day or two with no reason why, I will strike you off and take over the character again. Now, I can understand if it was a sudden problem and you couldn't get to me and you really are on nearly everyday but this was just that occasional exception because you hurt yourself or had a huge pile of homework that day etc, but when it happens every week I start to not really believe you.

      Q. I really don't want to mess this role up and I'm afraid of making big mistakes... What should I do?

      A. Don't worry too much about that. If you have any doubt that what you're doing is OOC for the teacher, look at their profile, see if there are any big flashing lights that tell you this is something you should absolutely not do because it's not in their character, and then if you're still worried, ask me. I'm always open to answering any questions you might have, no matter how stupid or insignificant you think they are. If you do anything worth correcting, I will let you know, but really as long as you just follow the guidelines of the profile you should be just fine.

      Q. Can I request a change or addition to the teacher profile?

      A. You can always request anything you want. It doesn't always mean I will say yes, BUT, I am always open to suggestions, a good theme song, a picture of a weapon you want to use, a fun fact, permission to have feelings for another teacher etc. Anything you want to add or change in the extra information section of your teacher's profile is very likely to be agreed with. Anything in the upper sections has a less likelihood of being added but it's entirely possible. However, it is VERY unlikely I will change or delete anything in the upper sections. If I do, it's only because you proved a valid point or had a very good reason.

      Q. I messed up and got corrected, will I get removed from the teacher role if I mess up again?

      A. Most likely not. It really depends on what you're doing. If you're going out and blatantly ignoring the teachers role and doing things completely out of character several times, yes, you will be removed because you aren't following simple guidelines which are very clear, and if they weren't, I have already said several times that you can always talk to me and ask questions. You would really have to try to get kicked from the teacher role so don't worry too much. The only other reason you would be kicked is if you simply can't be on constantly or ask to be removed.



Accepted Students;


      Q. My Character now has a love interest/girlfriend/boyfriend/friend/rival/new theme song/new found power/magic specialty etc. Can I edit it into my profile? 

      A. Yes. The reason I made each student have their own test forum for their profile is for this reason; now the profile is yours to add to, edit, and rearrange as needed as your character lives out their daily lives as members of Swiftwood academy. If you plan to make minor changes such as a new relationship with someone else, theme song, interest or dislike, feel free to edit as much as you want. However, if you want to make a bigger, more important change, such as the discovery of a new power, or discovering their magic specialization 

      Q. I'm bored of this character and I want to get rid of them/ I no longer wish to be in this RP, what should I do to appropriately dispose of my character?

      A. The best, most efficient way to kill off characters in this RP if you're willing to stick around for a little while longer, is to let me know ahead of time that you wish to kill off said character. I can then place them in a DEMI'S group and send the group off to go fight daemons, that way you can literally kill them off in your final post. If you absolutely need to leave the RP right away and no longer wish to, or can no longer RP in this RP, the next easiest way to kill off a character is have them either transfer to another school, or be called home and be removed from the school. 

      Either way, please, PLEASE don't just leave and do nothing with your character. Then I have to get involved and personally pull your character out and I really don't want to have to do that when I have my own characters to take care of.
