Hopefully everyone enjoyed their class trip and a little bit of peace and quiet afterward -- or at least as much peace and quiet as anyone ever gets at Kikuryou!

Shigeru, elder son of the Matsuzaki family, will be arriving at the Academy to take the position of Kikuryou's new music teacher.. among other things. He is interested in the rumours of whatever darkness and foul energy is sleeping there in the area and how he might be able to make use of it for his own selfish, personal ambitions but these things take time. Shigeru is not one to handle boredom well and so he has every intention of stirring up trouble!
Red moths seem to be invading the school in incredible numbers but they are far from ordinary insects. Attracted relentlessly to the scent of their victims, their powdered wings carry a toxin that if breathed in produce an intense fear response. If one should touch one of them the effect is much more severe as the toxin induces a crippling, hallucinogenic effect in the victim that brings their worst fears, nightmares, and anxieties to the surface. The moths feed upon the fear and the terror and will entrap their victims in this state indefinitely as long as the moths survive. Once free of the moths the effects will eventually fade as long as the victim does not encounter more of the insects.
Shigeru is an older vampire who fully embraces his nature, lending him considerable power by that alone. He champions the ideology of vampire supremacy, viewing humans as little more than fodder and other non-humans as lesser creatures that pale in comparison to vampirekind. If that weren't enough he is also an unapologetic sadist and a narcissist though the exact nature of his brand of madness is hard to pinpoint. Whatever the cause, he is an extremely dangerous and depraved individual who lacks shame and has no sense of morality. He is very capable of hiding all of this behind a convincing, charming front meant to inspire trust and create doubt in the face of accusations. He will maintain this as long as he sees fit, preferring to pull strings from the shadows in the meantime. However, when that time does come he can and will fight and is quite formidable. Beyond enhanced speed and strength he also possesses the dark powers inherent to his kind that allow him other abilities such as compulsion.
Presently, he is making use of that in order to manipulate adorable first year Tom Marsh for his own ends. Aware of the boy's talents with magic he managed to ensnare him and put him to good use as the figurehead of his cruel game, drawing suspicion away from him while he continues to act behind the scenes. This is essentially an event in layers and there are plenty of opportunities here for interactions both positive and negative. On his own, Shigeru is a manipulator capable of shaking up loyalties by planting the seeds of mistrust wherever he sees fit for an entertaining time. By that same token he can eventually be a catalyst for characters to find reasons to work together.

Basically, this is an elegant way of saying that if you want some dramarama in your life then we can hook you up~

Fun and games are heeeere!

it's long overdue, really, but time to tear this bandaid off. I just don't have the time and mental energy to keep up with even such a small and adorable game as this one. I'm happy to leave Ulf as an NPC for plot-fodder, or have him head home for Family Reasons; whichever you like.

peace out, dear Ghosties, and keep on doin' you.

Because I KNOW that we all come up with ridiculous crack headcanon.
So I'm an organisational potato so I figured it might be fun to have a place where we can share all our stupid and ridiculous and silly and PROBABLY-NOT-GONNA-HAPPEN headcanon and then it is preserved here for our viewing pleasure!
Plus then people can leave comments for even more silliness ehuehuhuehueueh.
It's all in good fun but of course you guys know that! Enjoy~~~

Dopple event is finished and it's time for something new. Kikuryou's students and teachers are being sent to a rural farming community in Kagoshima Prefecture, Kyushu!

Get your work boots and gloves ready and bring your Tiger Balm, folks. Teachers and students will go on an all-expenses-paid work-study trip to participate in a week long biology education course sponsored by the government. Students and teachers will be taken to work on farms and catch fish to learn about food. At night they will stay in a hot-spring country inn.

The kids have to do each activity in pairs, so if you want CR with a certain someone, you can say they were paired together by drawing names. Pairs can be any grade together or even student-teacher if you really want. You can have different partners for different events. Accommodations can be in twos or fours or even M&F just make up an excuse. Do what you like.

You can choose to have your character participate in threads with prompts. Activities available include:

--Going out as a team on a small fishing boat to catch skipjack tuna with poles. A storm will be coming in.
--Planting, weeding, or harvesting together as a team. Chief crops are mustard flowers, tangerines, grapes, honey.
--Cooking contest with a partner ($100/¥10000 prize)
--Caring for wee baby free-range Kagoshima Black Piglets including bottle-feeding, bathing, petting, racing, and playing.
--Turtle Rescue: a trip to Yakushima beach at night to document endangered loggerhead turtles laying eggs, help tag and measure turtles, and count turtles, nests, and eggs being laid. Free time on night beach afterwards.
--Visiting Yakushima, a primeval wild rain forest preserve with trees older than 2000 years. Home to ancient species of weasels, yaku macaque, and sika deer. Nice beaches there.
--gigantic sushi eating contest (vegetarian available) (prize is a fancy dinner for two that can be used in Kikuryou)
--Getting into randy shenanigans Bathing and sleeping at a cozy traditional Japanese inn. Haunted? Up to you


I ask that if you join threads that you check back and tag in a timely manner to prevent a pileup of back tagging all the events ok? This event lasts one month at the most and then we are moving on to new things!

Also please remember: if you are no longer feeling your old character, you are totally welcome to change what you need to, give them powers, do a new character, whatever you want!

Questions? Plotting? Come chat with us on Skype in the game chat or ask here!

What is the Shapeshifter Event?

Over the course of about a week, an entity - codenamed Agent Dopple - will be infiltrating Kikuryou Academy and spying on students, faculty, and monsters alike. This is your opportunity for twofold shenanigans! Firstly, Agent Dopple is interested in getting as much information as possible, about as many people as possible. This primarily involves shapeshifting, as Dopple can use the powers of anyone they shift into, providing an invaluable source of information. More importantly, Dopple wants to get intel on the relationships and dynamics of the Academy, especially those with supernatural powers or who have some importance on the campus. Thus, Dopple will also attempt to interact with as many as possible, often by transforming into someone seen as trustworthy. So, if you've ever wanted your characters to have awkward UST, hilarious misunderstandings, or have a catalyst for follow-up interactions, Dopple’s attempts can work well for that.

The second involves the ongoing plot with the Council of Enlightenment. If Agent Dopple shifts into your character or interacts with said character, all information gained can be used later for further CoE events. Think of this as your doorway into ongoing plot, so if there are things you want to explore with your character, be sure to incorporate that into your posts.

hello lovely friends, I'm sorry I haven't been around! I'm afraid it's going to be a continuing trend for the next couple of months as end of year/christmas madness hit every aspect of my life. so I'm gonna go ahead and say that I'm not going to be playing for a while. however, I'm happy to plot stuff out for Ulf if you want to handwave it or backthread later! best way to contact me is via my plurk, since I can access that anywhere, otherwise my AIM details are also in the contact post. if I don't reply/stop replying it's not because I don't love you, I promise. something's just come up and by the time I got back you're gone!

Please welcome new player Dane, who is bringing in Kylar [personal profile] mizuma, and his brother Arin [personal profile] ghostfacin. Jade is also bringing in new characters Thomas [personal profile] deep_mysteries and Shichiro [personal profile] accidental_deity

Let's decide what room each student/teachers are in, too. Enrollment and staff has dropped due to 3 student deaths/disappearances and 1 teacher death last year. Available classrooms are the A and B class of each year. My suggestion:

3-A: HR teacher Miyuki, all 3rd year characters
2-B: HR teacher Yuzuya, all 2nd year characters
1-A: HR teacher Ren, all 1st years

Please comment here and confirm if this is ok or if you prefer another class. Thank you!

The game is ready to open again! Please tag all new posts in the main comm with SEASON 2. Old posts should be tagged SEASON 1. 

Note: The Japanese school year is different. Kikuryou's ended at the beginning of MARCH 2009 and there were 3 weeks vacation. The first day of school is on APRIL 6th. 

Many of us are making changes to characters. It's been years and we've forgotten stuff too. In the interest of saving time and encouraging CR, please:

Comment with your character, put their name in the subject line
1. Link to character's profile
2. Give us what we should know/remember about your character from Season 1, any big plots they were having or foreshadowing, etc we should keep an eye on. Links encouraged to important stuff.
3. Have you made changes to your character you have made such as a retcon or "soft reset" that we and other characters should be aware of now?
4. Anything that your character did during the time-skip that other characters would know about? Are they coming back from break with green hair, etc?
5. What kinds of plots and CR are you interested in doing? Any ideas?

Then the rest of us can comment below you and ask questions or kick the plots around. GO

 Welcome to Ghost*Sugar 2.0

1. Biggest rule: This is now a no-pressure plotty musebox comm for fun times to blow off stress. No drama, guilt, or grief about tagging.  Ain't nobody got time for that. Everybody has a grownup life now and we all get it. Just have fun with your characters and do all the things you want. Let's just be cool with each other.

2. You can retcon anything you need to, or "soft reset" or change aspects of your character that you're just not feeling anymore. Feel free to share new profiles or changes or whatnot on this comm.

3. We will be doing a time-skip to the beginning of the new school year (April 1st). That means you can promote your kid to the next grade up. If your character was a 3rd year student, feel free to just keep them at 3rd year if you wanted. 

4. Everybody is a mod now. It's a collaboration and we all have an equal amount of authority here. You can do whatever you want with the comms and posts.

5. No posts on your individual journal, too much work with friending everybody. If you are posting with your character on the school internet/network, you can post in main comm and tag it #network.

Find something that's epic from the old threads? please tag it "reread this" so we can enjoy. Thanks!

Did I miss anything? OK, it's your turn. Are you down with this? Let's party. We are kicking around the idea of having the teachers in a bar playing a drinking game for the first post. Anything else?

BTW you can now buy G*S merchandise.

Hey guys! It's Oliver, your friendly neighborhood mod here. I've just done a much-needed update on the Episode Guide, but some of the threads are missing summaries or just have quick ones thrown in because I haven't had time to read all of the lovely recent threads yet! This is just a quick and dirty update to get the ball rolling, so I'd appreciate it if you guys could give the June 2008 section a look-over and tell me if:

* any of the threads need to be in a different (in-game) chronological order than they were on the comm
* I mislabeled any threads as complete or in-progress

Also, please feel free to feed me summaries to plug into threads with missing summaries or ones with less than stellar ones. :D

And just one quick reminder: in addition to having character tags, every action thread needs to be tagged with the ic tag. Thanks, guys! <3

Sports Day

Aug. 3rd, 2009 05:34 pm
[identity profile]
Okay, Sports Day is coming up in-game on Sat. June 7th, and here's some things you might want to know. I know this is a lot of info and I'm not going to bitch trip about that you must know it, it's just here if you want it to think of a fun idea for something your character can get involved in.

What is Sports Day?
Sports Day at Kikuryou is a major event in which the school tries to impress parents, the community, and most of all donors and trustee members with a sometimes cloying display of order, sportsmanship, teamwork, and athletic ability. Nothing is more important at a Sports Day event than showing how the students are well-organized and can work as a team. Because of this showing the students marching in step (even goose-stepping) is a big favorite with snooty private schools.

On a more obvious level, Sports Day is a competition between a "Red Team" and a "Blue Team" to see which team can win more points by the end of the day. There is one event (a group jump rope contest, see below) which is a competition between classes and doesn't have anything to do with the points. Just gives your class bragging rights and a framed award to hang on the wall.

Ghost*Sugar Sports Day FAQ )

* * * *

Questions, comments, requests? Who do you want your character teamed with or against? A job your teacher will do, or an event your student wants to compete in? (Students can't compete in more than 2 optional events, please. Sorry Kokoro, you would win everything otherwise.) First-come first-serve. Please comment here and we'll talk. Thanks!


FAQ Update

Aug. 2nd, 2009 01:42 pm
[identity profile]
Added more stuff regarding how teachers can discipline students to the FAQ. Some of it is a little bit embellished for the sake of RP. If you have a question that should be in the FAQ, please comment there or contact a mod over AIM. Thanks.
[identity profile]
I, Jade, am now pleased to announce the first group of Lovely Obake that have been unveiled for the pleasure and/or dismay of all characters in the Academy. From Kazuhiko the Eternal Guardian to Ittan-Momen, they are all here to add a bit of ghostly/demonic flare to any who wish to make use of them. If you want to thread with them, just drop me a line and we can work something out; any questions or comments (or requests, I'll be adding more as inspiration strikes) same story! These creatures all exist to help you with your stories, which means that I'll be flexible with what you want to work with.
[identity profile]
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you our thread index: Ghost*Sugar Episode Guide. We will post links to all rp threads here, in chronological order. If you start a thread, let a mod know what kind of description to put up there for your thread, and we'll get it up there correctly.
[identity profile]
Welcome to our OOC community. I'm going to be posting useful resources and announcing bits of the comm that have been constructed here. As we gain actual members, we'll announce them here, too. Please keep an eye on this closet, I hope it will be a fun one even if the walls do bleed.

One applicant was asking for more info about Japanese school. I know it's really lame but I have bits and pieces that may or may not be useful here:
Stuff About Japanese School I certainly don't expect anyone to remember all of this, and it probably won't even come up in rp. It's just for if you were curious. If you have more questions, fire away.

If there are any of you having trouble finding a good family name for your character, I was looking too, and I got irritated with really stupid mistakes in a few that I found online. Two sites that I found had the pen names of authors and artists in them, like Hokusai and Jippensha. These aren't real last names at all, they're trade names that were made up-- or there were like, given names that were in there as last names. Unhappy with this, I made a page. If you need a nice normal name, or want to see what kind of components make up a normal name in Japanese, go for it. I'm making a bigger list of names I've heard, but it's still in the works. Top 100 Japanese Family Names here.

I also found a lot of names here, thanks to good old Hitoshi Doi. You can see how many syllables and what kind of name combos go together well. This is a page of actor's names though, so be warned that some are not quite real names, they're stage names (like Kujira, Tarako, and Shiratori) but most are ok ones. Click on the big lists of male seiyuu for guys' names, and female seiyuu for girl names.

If there are other things you are finding you need to get your character rolling, please do not hesitate to tell us! Thanks! --Shiru
