This is an RP continuation of the Johnny Entertainment variety, set in Osaka High, the school in the Hana Kimi series. You don't need to be familiar with the series to join, but there are a few things about Osaka High that you need to know.
Osaka High is an all-boy boarding school. It has been dubbed the "pretty boy paradise," because most of the alumni are attractive, or fairly good-looking. There are three dorms on campus, one of each has a "dorm head." These three dorm heads form what is known as the Sakura Committee. The Sakura Committee is meant to represent the student body.
→ Please check the taken/reserved characters list before applying.
→ At the moment there's a five character limit. This may change in the future.
→ The only muses allowed are Johnny's Entertainment members or girls/woman who've played in dramas with JE members.
→ STAY IN CHARACTER. It's fine to bend this once and a while, we all do it, but please, unless it's in keeping with your character's development over time, don't go too crazy. (Unless your character is legitimately insane, in which case, have a ball.)
→ Try to use correct grammar and spelling- everyone makes mistakes, but try to make logs readable.
→ No OOC drama. What happens in the game stays in the game, same applies outside. Contact the mods if you've got a problem with another player.
→ Be active! Try to show up at least once every 2 weeks, and post a hiatus notice in the comm if you need to take a break. Maximum hiatus time is one month. Sweeps will be made at the end of each month, and you'll be contacted for inactivity. After that, your character will be up for grabs to anyone who wants them; feel free to reapply, though. You can reapply after two weeks to give others a fair chance as well.
If you have any problems or questions, ask a mod! ♥
CAMPUS, DORMS, CLASSES;
Osaka High is a very typical boarding school. There are three dorms, a clinic, a variety of sports facilities, classrooms... It's going to be made in paint, so don't expect anything fancy.
Students will be allowed off campus during weekends only or by special permission.
A dorm head can only be voted off as dorm head by the majority of people in a certain dorm. Dorm members, on the other hand, are free to switch dorms if they so please. Once a dorm member switches out of a dorm, they won't be allowed back in. This is to avoid people switching back and forth constantly.
Additionally, each dorm is equipped with it's own dining area. The dorms are NOT off limits to anyone. That is too say, Dorm 1 member can freely visit Dorm 2 without permission.
There is a two person limit per room. If you and your friend are applying and want to share a room, please specify in your application. Head over here for more information on the rooms, and to see who is sharing rooms with who.
To make life simpler for everyone, you will not be required to apply for classes. All students will be taking the same courses, varying in difficulty depending on the student's grade level. Everyone in the same grade level will be sharing the same classroom. That is to say, all 9th graders in one class, all 10th grades in another...
You will not need to keep a record of your character's attendance or whatever. This information is only here to let you know who your characters will be sharing classrooms with.
Logs and in-character IM conversations will be posted to the community as well. It is important that any interaction outside the journals gets shared with the rest of the players in the game, so that everyone is aware of what is going on. It is not mandatory for you guys to read these if you don't want to, but please share.
Please post all hiatus announcements, general announcements, drop posts, new member posts, ect. in osakahigh_ooc. If you have questions about what does and doesn't belong please email a mod. (:
[LOGGING AND INSTANT MESSAGING]
You will not be required to create an in-character instant messaging account. However, it is necessary to have at least one kind of instant messenger for communication with other players, and any interactions outside from journals between characters.
If you and another player want to log, but you do not use the same IM Client, you're free to comment-log on the community. You can also log through e-mail.
A log posted on the community must be under a cut. Information on the characters, rating of the log, warnings (if any), and summary must be provided. This applies to comment-logs that are incomplete. Just specify that it is incomplete in the summary.
You will be required to create a character journal. When you write in your journal, you are writing from the point of view of your character. "I had delicious apples today," as opposed to, "Sano ate apples today."
IN GAME, the journals are being kept on a private server in Osaka High. What I mean by this, is that your characters are not writing posts in LiveJournal. Your characters are accessing their accounts on Osaka High's private server to post on their journals. So instead of complaining about how LJ sucks, your characters would be whining about OH's server sucks.
Since interaction in this game is mainly by journals, we are to pretend that all new characters in the game have just created an account on OH's private server. What I mean by this is that, when you apply, your character won't be "the new student." He would have been in campus all along, but is only new to the journal system hosted on Osaka's High server. This is mostly to avoid a new student coming in every other week, but you can specify in your application if you want your character to be a new student.
All information and posts on journals will be viewable to the whole student body. Unless your character chooses to filter their posts.
For example, Nakatsu writes a lengthy confession to Mizuki, but he doesn't want anyone but her to read it. He can do this, by filtering his post, or that particular section of his post, to Mizuki. Like so:
[FILTERED: TO MIZUKI]
Mizuki I love you. Marry me. Insert other lovey dovey crap here.
The information in this filter will be viewable to all of us OUT OF CHARACTER, but will only be viewable to Mizuki IN CHARACTER. This is so we're all aware of what is happening in the game. You can filter to and from people, just be specific about it. For example, you can filter a message to Dorm 1, while filtering it from Sano.
It may seem a little complicated at the beginning, but trust me when I say that it is not.
Osaka High accepts female characters. Since JE lacks women, the only condition is that your character must have acted in a drama alongside a JE boy. Variety shows DO NOT count.
Female characters applying to the game will only be able to fill in the role of a teacher, as Osaka High is an all boy school. There is no room for female students. We will not be accepting applications for girls at St. Blossoms, because again, this is Osaka High. Not St. Blossoms. No girls.
Now that all the boring introductory stuff is over, lets get to the fun part. Applying! But before you do so, please check the list of taken characters so you don't waste your time.
Head over to THIS POST to submit an application.
