Welcome to the prestigious Shelvington Academy, a private school for the fabulously wealthy between the high school and college ages! Located on the island of Calipan, Shelvington Academy is dedicated to being both informing and enjoyable, with frequent events that put the school's enormous budget to work! The price to get in is pretty high if you don't have special connections or a hefty scholarship, but it's worth it for such a stellar educa-fun! Wait, that was bad, scratch that from the reco-
Welcome the Shelvington Academy, AAO's premium Slice of Life role-play. In this RP, you play as up to three students attending the titular school and living out a bizarre school life where your teacher's a dog and most people are ludicrously wealthy. The concept is fairly simple - you create a student for the academy and interact however you want. Classes are mostly time-skipped over and the campus supplies basically everything you need, including dorms for lodging. The focus of this roleplay is on the interactions you have and the relationships you form between school life and the excessive school events!
This role-play was originally created by the wonderful Ami before being transferred to me. Credit to the awesome Alnar for our logo and Hesseldahl for our poster!
The school itself is large and wealthy enough to have basically anything you can imagine. Structurally, the campus is mostly outdoors with different buildings containing different aspects of the school, and it's REALLY big. Rooms and buildings included are:
-Drama and Makeup Departments
-A Front Office
-The Nurse's Office
And much more. There is no current plan for a map of the campus, as new locations can be come up with on the spot. Basically, expect things to be flexible on what's on campus.
Gameplay and Rules
There's no specific gameplay rules past what can be generally expected of my RPs. You go around and interact with other characters in a mostly free-range setting. You may occasionally be chastised if you break school rules (which, like the campus, are flexible) and days pass eventually, but it's fairly relaxed in terms of gameplay. Actual class time is generally skipped over because I'm not RPing your math lessons. Most notably are the school events, such as the Pep Rally, Track and Field, the Beach Trip, and the Costume Party. These are school-sponsored events usually after class that give people an opportunity to play around in different scenarios, usually inspired by other slice of life scenarios.
-No death. Your backstory can involve death and you can get into scuffles, but no students are allowed to die in this RP. It doesn't fit the tone.
-No murder. This isn't the RP for characters who are secretly assassins, for reasons similar to the above rule. Just keep "slice of life' in mind, please.
-No supernatural characters or elements. The rules of the setting can be rather cartoonish but magic, superpowers and aliens aren't allowed.
-No spamming. You can have short posts, but keep them one at a time and try to keep it substantial.
-Be fair and let other RPers react to things you do. Let people react if you try to grab them or throw a punch before you proceed.
-Post OOC in spoilers.
-Wait for GM acceptance of your app before posting as them.
-The current maximum is THREE CHARACTERS per player.
-NPCs are permitted for plot purposes, but do not take control of another's NPC without permission.
-Clearly note your location when switching scenes.
-Over-the-topness and cheesiness is allowed and encouraged as long as it does not go into god-mod territory.
-Keep 4th-wall breaking to a reasonable amount based on the tone of the RP takes.
-Don't steal a scene or bend the tone to your own whim if the other players don't want it.
-No AUs of real or copyrighted characters; OCs only.
-Read GD's Roleplaying guide for reference.
Staff Members and other NPCs
Here's some notable NPCs that have been a part of the RP, including staff members. Subject to update.
Headmistress Ami Cloverfield - Controlled by Ami. The young headmistress of Shelvington Academy, she inherited the school from her family and, through a number of successful business moves, rose it up to the juggernaut it is today. Despite her important position and her business know-how, she prefers to avoid work and high effort, and generally doesn't get involved much in school business.
Professor Muller - Created by Ami, controlled by gotMLK7. A large and intelligent leonberger dog with a collar that lets him speak human language. He's your main teacher for the RP. He's intelligent and rather proper and refined for a dog, but he's certainly a little awkward given the species divide, and he's not above the stereotypes associated with his particular disposition.
Nurse Lena Wulfe - Controlled by gotMLK7. The school nurse is intimidating, given her muscular frame, her intimidating glare, her rough and tough speech, her tendency for threats, her messy office, and her general resemblance to an anime gang leader. Surprisingly, though, Nurse Wulfe is incredibly competent at her job, and is considered one of the best medical experts around. She can deal with your health issues with ease, she just isn't likely to do so politely.
Jenny Specter - Controlled by DSY. A maid on the campus that, for reasons unknown, believes herself to be a ghost. She's fairly aloof and hard to get a read on. Along with her on the cleaning staff is M.A.I.D., a well-trained force of maids that approach their job like a heavy-duty government mission.
Lengthy Limousine Larry - Controlled by gotMLK7. Shelvington's limousine driver. He drives a very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very lengthy limousine.
Tiny Table Tino - Controlled by gotMLK7. Shelvington's secretary. He sits in front of a very very very very very very etc. tiny table in a tiny chair with tiny office supplies. Which are tiny.
The Rocket Surgeons - Controlled by gotMLK7. The Rocket Surgeons are a popular local punk rock band, founded by Shelvington student and lead vocalist Jackie Crow. The band was hired to play at the Costume Party event by the school. Pictured from left to right: Sid the Kid, the band's skilled drummer who seems very mentally distant and apathetic in most situations; Johnny "Hellraiser", abundantly egotistical lead guitarist with an excessively exacerbating disposition; and Tammy Mulligan, a bass guitarist with a sharp tongue and a seemingly eternal annoyed tone, with a fondness for smoking.

If you want to join in mid-RP, I recommend visiting the Front Office to speak with the secretary, Tiny Table Tino, to get a quick run-down of your dorm situation and current events. This is not required, but is an easy starting place.
Happy school life!
