About 25% of people in your world have a power that they develop as a child, at around 10 or 11 years old. Maybe it’s super strength, maybe it’s extreme intellect, maybe even magic. Who knows what it could be? But there’s a catch, everyone has a source of their power (electricity, light, heat, ect), it isn’t something they just have and can use whenever they would like.
The rarest type of source is music, and people with this source are known as Canetis, those who are granted their power when they play certain songs and rhythms on a wind (not a recorder, slide whistle, nose flute ect) or string instrument (to be specific, ones which you may find in a high school orchestra, such as violins and string basses). You are a Canetis, and because of this, you go to a school where you learn to use your powers. If you have read to here, put “I” in other.
This school is simply called “The School of Music,” and there are three ‘factions’ which students are sorted into; Pulchritudo Pars, Tenebris Pars, and Claritas Pars. The factions students are sorted into each represent the type of music which gives them their abilities, Pulchritudo Pars being beautiful and emotional melodies, Tenebris Pars being songs which are powerful and intense, and Claritas Pars being joyful and bright pieces.
The School of Music is located in an island known as Nix in the North Atlantic Ocean, and is almost like a mountain paradise. In the winter, the island will be covered with snow and ice, the temperatures below freezing. Many students find the weather a nuisance, as the lower temperatures make their instruments below pitch. In the spring and summer, the island is around sixty degrees and sunny.
At this school, along with learning how to use your powers, you and your peers will also learn about music, improve your skills, be educated like any other school, and most importantly, be taught the threats of the outside world. If you have read to here, put “am” in other.
Although you and many others have special powers to protect yourselves, your world is also full of danger. There are monsters (from mythologies, not ones that I’ll randomly create), and of course those who use their powers for evil.
You and the friends you meet at this school have to worry about staying alive, along with learning how to control your powers and playing your instrument.
The island of Nix is full of dangers, from stray Canetis and others with powers, to monsters which roam the area. You cannot let your guard down, no matter how safe or happy it seems. If you have read this far, put “a” in other.
Rules and Requirements-
-Be respectful to others.
-Do not manipulate other people’s characters without permission.
-LGBTQ+ is perfectly fine, I want diversity in this.
-As minor as this sounds, please use “ ” to show when someone is speaking in a POV and decent grammar. POVs can become hard to read without it.
-No “perfect people” or OP characters. Everyone has physical and emotional flaws.
-Characters aren’t warriors or fighters, and have little to no fighting experience.
-No weapons in school, it’s not a warzone.
-Be prepared to be bombarded with musical terms and expressions.
-This is not an action RP, so please don’t expect a lot of fighting, even though there are monsters and bad guys.
-You can have as many characters as you want.
-If these rules are broken, I'll politely give a warning. However, if it is constant even after warnings, I have every right to ban you from it.
-Be creative and have fun!
-If you have read this far, put “Canetis” in other. By now, you should have “I am a Canetis.” If you don’t, reread the directions and plot.
If your character is going to have a power which changes themselves, such as super speed, super strength, flight, or increased stamina, the “source,” or song which they play will only last for a certain duration. For example, they can only fly for 10 minutes before playing whichever song gives them their abilities again.
Other powers which will control the environment around them, such as water or fire manipulation, will last for the duration of the song that they play, meaning that these powers can only work while the person is playing their instrument.
I’ll post the forum soon. If you have any questions (I know that I glossed over some things), feel free to ask!
