Student Application

Step 1: Who Are You?

First, nearly all characters are students admitted to Saint Christopher High, are high school characters, but there are a few details that make your character distinct from the rest.

  • Full-Name <First> <Middle> <Last>
  • Age: Characters must be between 14 and 18. (only NPCs may app older)
  • DoB: Date of Birth - <Month>, <Day> (Year will be filled in by the code)
  • PoB: Place of Birth - <Town>, <State>
  • Grade: School Grade - Freshman (9), Sophomore (10), Junior (11) or Senior (12)
    • Some people may want to app someone who has dropped out. We wont say no to this, but those who have quit school should be sure they are dedicated to the concept. IC actions can be taken to obtain their GED, but not at the local High School. Drop-outs can not linger around the school during school hours.
  • Played-By: A Played-By is used to represent the physical appearance of your character in the IC world. Click HERE to see all taken PBs.
    • This is not mandatory for approval, but many players enjoy having a face to attach to their name. All actresses, actors, or models used must be of the appropriate age.

  • Cliques: There are eight cliques here on the game. Students know these cliques by their respective name. They acknowledge the hierarchy (given below) and continue to perpetuate its existence by living by it. Each student is sorted into their clique almost unanimously by their peers and it's that student’s actions entirely that determine where they go; in this way, Saint Christopher is reminiscent of Hogwarts and its infamous Sorting Hat. Death-wishing junkies are Alternatives, rich elitists are popular, the meek and shy are invisible…but Saint Christopher shares an important trait with actuality and that is depth.
    • Popular->Deviant->Alternatives->Dramatics->Band Geeks->Nerds->Freaks->Invisibles

  • Family: Provide a small blurb on your characters family and their life together.
    • There re a few 'Iconic Families' in the town of Saint Christopher Cove. These families have either established themselves through community works, through local influence, or through nothing more than simply having a lot of money and having been in the town since its founding. Only families created by the admin may hold the status of 'Iconic Family'. This characteristic can be selected in CG.

  • Background: The town of Saint Christopher Cove draws many families from many walks of life. Thanks to a rich history, beachfront beauty, its access to larger cities and a local military base, students from all over the country, and in some cases the world find their way into the slow, lazy grind of the Cove.
    • You need to determine where it is that your character comes from and how they got there. Maybe your character grew up in the Cove, or maybe they moved in when their parent was transferred from another base. Maybe they are a foreign exchange student eager to dive into their American experience. Whatever your flavor, work it out in this step.

  • Known For: When Did You Gain Your Rep? You weren't always who you are now. Everyone at some point int heir life has managed to make themselves more 'known' be it a good experience or a bad one. Maybe you were the first student at the school to win a national level art competition? Maybe you competed in the junior Olympics in swimming? maybe you threw up on Mrs. Atkin's shoes that one time when you were dissecting that frog? Regardless of what made you known, everyone has been known at some point or another, even if their renown faded just as quickly as it came.
    • You need to determine what moment you became 'known' and just what that moment was. Define it! This will be used by other players to get a feel for your character and the most impacting social memory of them.

  • Description: What Do You Look Like? This doesn't have to be a novel, but its always useful to know what your character loos like. Fill in your description in this section. cover things like hair, skin, and eye color, as well as build and height. If your character has any noticeable scars or marks add them here! You can also include things like clothing style, but avoid putting things in that tell others how to feel.
    • Don't tell the reader that they think your character is beautiful, there are characteristics for that (and of course this is always a matter of personal opinion). The same goes for descs that tell the read that they are intimidated. Leave this up to RP, reputation and Characteristics.

Step 2: Below The Skin

There's more to your character than a name, and age, and a clique. There are talents, skills, flaws and weaknesses that make them a real person. This is where we ask you to loosely define them in these manners. You will have to define the following character elements. Unless marked as Optional, these things are required.

  • About: This section must provide enough information to give readers a well-rounded understanding of your character. This section must be 200 words minimum.
  • Positive Quirks: Give 3 positive personality quirks. Provide a sentence explaining each.
  • Negative Quirks: Give 3 negative personality quirks. Provide a sentence explaining each.
  • Skills (Pro): Give 3 skills or activities your character is good at. Provide a sentence explaining each.
  • Skills (Con): Give 3 skills or activities your character struggles with. Provide a sentence explaining each.
  • Fears: Give 1 thing that your character is afraid of. Provide a sentence explaining each. (Optional)
  • Quirk or Secret: Does your character have a secret? This section must be 100 words minimum. (Optional)
  • Other: Are there any other details you wish to disclose? Medical problems or hook information not covered elsewhere? Use this section for it. Each item should be 150 words at minimum.

Step 3: Required Courses

Now, it’s time to consider your course schedule at the school. You can take six courses per semester. You will need to select a grade of course, and then you will select your classes.

And You’re Ready!

Your character is done! You will be asked to name any alts you may have approved.

  • Intro Pose: Show us you can RP. Write an introductory pose (scene set) for anywhere within the town. This must now be 150 words minimum. Remember that this is part of the approval process.
