All right, here's the OOC info and discussion thread for this roleplay.

With that out of the way, let's carry on. This is actually a second attempt to a story I started before going on hiatus, so a few of you have already seen it. As a disclaimer, this is starting from scratch, with new characters and new challenges assigned to each of them.

Roleplay-related disclaimers:

All characters for this roleplay are regular humans, without any superpowers or special skills. Also, this roleplay will be about character development and bonding.
No self-inserts, please. I can't stress this enough. It always leads to drama and hurt feelings.
No super special characters, like a 14 year old going to college. All characters should be at least 18.
Be patient, we have a time limit for posting, and people will be skipped once the time expires, so nagging isn't necessary (nor is it the kind of conduct I'm willing to have in this roleplay, this is supposed to be fun and relaxing).



Plot: The characters (up to 8, counting mine - so one for each available challenge) are all in the same university, and have ended up developing a bond as a group. During one of the terms, all of them will face some personal challenge that will cause them to rethink their choices and consider dropping out, and only the support of their friends will keep them afloat.

Further information: This will be an unstructured roleplay, with the players creating the story as we go. Posts should be done two weeks after the previous post, and we'll have a posting order so we don't get lost, so if you can't usually keep up this pace, please don't apply. Special situations that arise during the rp will be looked at case by case. Romance is allowed, but the characters need to interact with others as well, not just their SO.

And here's the catch: You don't get to choose your character's challenge. I have a list of options here in this post, and they will be put in an order and selected via die roll. If this takes off, the writers will be allowed to tell me if they don't want some specific challenges in the OOC thread, but all the others will be put up for random selection. That goes for my character as well. And it will be first come first serve, as in those who come in first will have more possibilities.



The challenges (remember, you can opt out of any of these if you'd like):

Losing a family member (someone close enough for the loss to affect their emotional balance)
Mental health issues (if you get this, you get to choose exactly what the issue will be) (Cotton)
Getting kicked out of their home (if you get this, you get to choose the exact reason) (Yue)/(Shades)
Gang involvement
Getting pregnant/getting someone pregnant and having to face adult life sooner than they planned (Zombies)/(Shades)
Drug involvement (Zombies)
Becoming a caregiver for a sick family member (Cotton)
Losing the job they needed to pay for their education

Feel free to ask any questions! This roleplay will remain open until all of the challenges are taken!

I think the only one I'd like to opt out of would be the drug involvement. I'm not sure how I would write that. I'm also a little unsure about mental health issues but I could possible do that one if necessary.

Any of the other ones I could do. Probably. I have a lot I would prefer (please give me losing a family member, please give me that one, I don't know why I want this one but I do).

All right, here goes the challenge list:

Shades: Gang involvement
AhZombies: Getting pregnant or getting someone pregnant (depends on the character)
Cotton: Drug involvement
Yue: Getting kicked out of their home

I'll post the character sheet template tomorrow, but thought I'd do this before bed today so everyone can start thinking about their characters!

Okay, I have edited the character sheet template into the initial post.
If anyone wants to try a reroll, now is the time to speak up, before you create your characters!

@Shades sorry to bother, but I'm having difficulty trying to think of a character involving drugs, and I'm not very well-versed in terminology / effects etc. I don't want to seem so picky but I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep the character up long term. That being said, a reroll is fine and if I get drugs again I'll just deal with it xD
