OOC: This is a mostly non-national character RP based off the lives of a number of students attending TEP’s premier university, Shiro Academy. The thread is open to anyone who wishes to join, so long as their main character is a student (though they may also introduce secondary adult characters). Students of any type (non-human, children of national leaders, regular old kids) are accepted.
It should be noted that Shiro Academy is a multi-level educational institution. It includes a boarding high school, undergraduate college, graduate school, and military academy. Your student may be attending any of these…the choice is entirely yours! Regardless of which school they are attending, though, it is highly recommended that they live in the same dorm as the rest of the Shiro characters, as this will facilitate RP.
Setting Note: Shiro Academy continues to be temporarily operating out of the abandoned Tilden Territorial University in the Free Pacific States. The Academy was originally forced to move due to the Korean/1IL War, and has been prevented from returning since that time due to the destruction of the old campus in 1 Infinite Loop.
Below is the diagram of Wachin Dormitory (Official Name C-10), where all active characters happen to be residing.
If you’re interested in joining in, feel free to drop in a student at any time.
If you want more details on who all the other students are and what’s happened, summaries are available on request. If you’d rather not summarize and feel like a whole lot of reading, the entire previous backstory for this can be found in several places:
