You wake up that morning with a weird feeling in your gut. Something is going to happen, something weird or bad. You’re not sure what, but you dread getting out bed.
You have to, though. It’s a huge day for Castle High School, the high school you attend. It’s Spirit Day, the annual expression of school pride that infects the majority of the school and even the local citizens. That night is the Homecoming Football Game, played against arch rivals Valley High, followed by the Homecoming Dance.
Even if you don’t ascribe to the rituals of high school, you still have to go and get an education.
Throughout the morning, that weird feeling lingers. It even gets stronger. Little things go wrong. You dribble toothpaste on your shirt, your coffee is cold despite just making it, your car refuses to start. Your cell phone keeps freaking out.
It’s a weird morning and it’s only going to get worse. You realize that when you get to school and instead of your normal, boring high school, you’re faced with a castle.
And there’s no escape.
This is a high school-set game, with fairytale and urban fantasy elements. It has the potential to turn somewhat dark, but I’m not looking for heaps of angst. There will be some horror elements (things chasing PCs, creepy things going on just out of their view, etc.). I’m a big supporter of romance and explorations of sexuality, so there’s a possibility those elements will come up. It’s set in a small town in a rural area of Northern California (close enough to San Francisco that it’s possible to visit in a day, but not so close that it’s a trip made all the time).
I like diversity, I like art on the cards, and I like bios that give me a sense of the character and your writing style. Not required, but consider adding something to the bio that reflects that Friday morning - how did they handle that weird feeling?
While the Nature cards use common princess tropes, the characters can be either gender. Natures with more than one possibility should be edited to reflect the character better, and you are not restricted to these Natures, Strengths, Weaknesses, or Subplots. (If you do create your own Nature, please keep it in line with the other Natures and it must reflect a fairytale-like theme.) Please keep characters between 16 and 18.
Currently looking for one more character, male character preferred.
Number of players: 4 - 6, depending. Applications not first come, first serve. I’m looking for interesting characters who will click together.
Player roles: High school students, no younger than 16, from a small town in a rural area of Northern California.
Power scale: Less than epic heroes with little access to outside resources.
