Nova - the term for a new so-called evolution of humanity. The first documented Nova was 5 years ago, when a young woman miraculously survived an apartment fire. Her newfound Nova power allowed her to control the fire itself.
Soon after, young Novas started appearing all over the globe. No one was sure why they suddenly developed powers.
Seeing a need to be filled, the Galvan Corporation began the construction of an academy, to teach and train new Novas how to use their powers in a safe location.
Located in Colorado near the Rocky Mountains, the Galvan Academy now accepts students with Nova powers for high-class private education for both their minds and their powers.

Galvan Academy is a high school for teenagers with Nova powers (like super powers or mutant powers). You are students at this academy. I’m aiming for a mix of drama and humor.
The first scene will be your collective arrival in Colorado, waiting for your bus to the school.
Your characters are incoming members of the Sophomore-level class (this school is only for grades 10-12, as most Novas do not show signs of their powers until they are nearly 15). You can be from anywhere in the world, though since the Galvan Academy is in the United States, speaking English is required and most applicants are from North America.
Why is my character going to school there?Likely because you recently acquired Nova powers, and they are… disruptive to your life. Maybe your parents can’t handle them, or your community distrusts you. Either way, somehow you applied, and were granted a scholarship or your family paid your way to this prestigious school that specializes in helping Nova.
Nova power?Nova powers are still relatively new; not much is known about Novas. In fact, the Galvan Coporation is on the forefront of understanding the Nova phenomenon, though much of what they know is still secret.
Nova powers are dormant until the person reaches puberty, at which point the power reveals itself, usually during a stressful moment in time.
What should I include in my character description?Please include how your character’s Nova powers manifested, as well as a detailed description of your character’s powers. No one should have anywhere near complete mastery of their powers at this point (that’s what special Nova school is for, after all).
Feel free to make up any new cards as you feel, especially for your powers.
This is my first time narrating, so if you have any suggestions please let me know. This is based off of an RP I participated in on Gaia long, long ago. :)
