”Welcome, young ones—students new and old—to Rosengarten Conservatory. Or should I say... Welcome home.
You have come to us from all walks of life. From the highest of heights, to the bottom of the gutter. Had circumstances been different, your paths may never have crossed. And yet... Fate has brought you, one and all, to our doorstep. I am sure that right now some of you in this very Hall may be feeling uncertain, frightened; and you may be questioning. 'What is this place? Why am I here? How can I be certain that what I am hearing is the truth?'
And while now is not the time for those, be at ease. For all questions have an answer, and these are no exception. But for now, rest well in the knowledge that you will, eventually, come to see Rosengarten and its staff as your home, and family.
... As you are settling in, feel free to explore the grounds. The dormitories are separated by year, starting from First on the First, to Twelfth at the top of the stair. West Wings are for boys, and East, for girls. Classes will be held five days-a-week from morning to afternoon with a short break for lunch around mid-day. Your classes will be, once again, separated by year.
Classes will begin in earnest in one week's time. Until then, take time to settle into your new lives, learn the names of your neighbors, and enjoy the many amenities that this old castle has to offer, including a chaperoned field-trip into Town in three day's time... However, should you be of a more... Intrepid sort, I should warn you to steer clear of the hillocks and woods after dark.”
A WORLD OF POTENTIAL
Today, approximately 10% of the world’s population possesses a quirk of genetics that has unlocked within them latent, untapped potential. These Potentialities can take many form and manifest in strange, often-times otherworldly ways… Humans with Potential (HPs) are born naturally stronger, faster, and hardier than their Non-Potential (NP) kin. But beyond mere enhancements, a certain subset of HPs (less than 1% of the population by most current estimates) possess unique, fantastical, and above all powerful abilities. Some move at astonishing speeds, others manipulate matter with a mere thought. Just one of them is enough to defeat entire squadrons of Non-Potentials (NPs) with little effort.
The true origins of the subspecies known Homo Potentialis have been lost to the ages. Though in (relatively) recent times, their resurgence was due solely to the actions of a handful of explorers who stumbled upon an ancient system catacombs hidden away beneath a far off city. Uncovering this hidden tomb awoke the dormant Potentiality of all humans the world over, and the NPs have been struggling to keep up ever since.
Currently there are five accepted types of Potentialities, which have more-or-less categorized Potentialities by their presentation, though they are by no means an exhaustive list, and often-times Potentialities may belong to one, two, or more different categories simultaneously. The five Potentials are:
Physical enhancements with a condition belong here, including but not limited to super strength, super speed. They are by comparison the most simplistic variation.
Transformations and alterations of normal human biology, either temporarily or permanently, belong here. Potentialities concerning shape-shifting, animal chimerism, and the like would belong in the Chimeric category.
This type of Potentiality deals in the creation of either matter or energy that comes ostensibly from nothing. Ethereal HPs can command elemental forces of fire, ice, or lightning among countless others.
HPs with the power to transmute and manipulate existing matter are called Alchemical. Most broadly, this can include telekinesis, or more specifically, manipulation of specific pre-existng elements or states of matter.
The fifth and final category exists to lay claim over any Potentiality that does not fit neatly into one or many of the above categories. There is little that links one Irregular Potentiality to another outside of their rejection of the common understanding.
This roleplay will be predominantly "PvE", with a few opportunities for Player Character Vs. Player Character sprinkled throughout. With that in mind, occasionally events will have their outcomes determined via dice roll, with opportunity for advantaged rolls for characters who may have some trait or ability that would lend itself well to the task they are trying to complete. The dice rolls and advantages (or disadvantages) will be determined by the GM prior to the roll.

The Rosengarten Conservatory is built upon the bones of an ancient stone castle stronghold situated in the mountainous Northwest of the Island Continent known as Amestria. Overlooking the small town of Edgewood, Rosengarten Conservatory is no ordinary boarding school, but rather a school for HP children who have either been disowned, or orphaned for one reason or another. The children range from 5- to 18-years of age, with approximately 8-to-12 Children per Year. This fall marks the grand opening of Rosenagrten Conservatory, and thus these 100 or so children are the first class to pass through its doors.
The Conservatory is run and operated by a staff of teachers, orderlies, nurses, prefects, and researchers, all of whom report to the Headmaster.

Welcome! To New Oasis: Academy
While the name may be a bit misleading for those who've been in New Oasis all along—spoiler alert, the city New Oasis does not feature (not prominently, anyway) in this story—New Oasis: Academy is a side-project of the ongoing RP, New Oasis: Four Heavenly Kings. Both of these stories exist in the same universe, at around the same time (this story is taking place in late 2021 to start), and in fact on the same continent (though separated by at least a few thousand miles).
This'll be a relatively lower-stakes, less absolutely sweeping in scale story compared to Four Heavenly Kings. It's essentially an Academy, Mystery, Somewhat-Horror-Adjacent tale of a group of young super-powered teens being forced to live in a dormitory and attend classes together. With that in mind, I am likely looking for no more than 8-12 players to play the 8-12 characters in their first, and final, year at Rosengarten Conservatory, but if this drums up enough interest I may open up slots in the "Junior" class as well.
There'll be much more to come on this, but for now this post serves more so to see about interest and take things from there.
1. Be Respectful.
- Treat everyone with respect. If you can’t be civil you’re out. No one has time for all that.
- If a disagreement breaks out because of an in-story thing GMs will make the final call on the decision if it can’t be dice-rolled.
2. Absolutely no godmodding.
- This includes any moving of characters without asking ooc.
- This includes any implying that a character did something or didn’t do something without asking if that’s how they would react.
- If a post can’t be finished without knowing what another player would do then ask them or turn it into a collab.
- If you have been given a warning your post is void until the godmodding has been removed and will be yeeted back to you in a PM before being deleted from the thread.
- If we do not immediately catch that you have been godmodded please pm us.
1. Players will start with a 1 character cap.
- This does not mean barely meeting the minimum. It means actually exceeding it. When you can say you haven't left any rp partner waiting more than two-to-four days we’ll consider it
2. Post Minimums: don't leave your partner(s) hanging for over a week with no communication.
3. Character Deaths
- It may be insane of me, but I'm kicking around the idea of actually implementing consequences for absolutely batshit decision-making. The stakes may be low, but this'll still be a story about life... And death. Don't always open that door!
4. Teachers, prefects, and orderlies.
- If you'd like to play one of these, let me know! Playing one will necessitate stepping into a kind of pseudo-GM role, so don't apply if you don't want to get the whole plot spoiled right off the bat!
