Welcome to Renaissance Island.
Previously an unclaimed piece of land in the North Atlantic Ocean, a group of wealthy philanthropists – Campbell Smith, Benoit Lecache, and John Solomon have wholly renovated the island into a secluded haven of civilization, all built around the philanthropists’ dream – a palatial school built for higher education for the most elite of today’s youth: Renaissance Island School for the Elite, known colloquially as Ren High.
To populate the island, the philanthropists awarded a number of different scholarships to brilliant students from all over the world, inviting them to come with or without their families to live on the beautiful island. Still more were invited (though not awarded scholarships), with students from schools across the continents being alerted to this new opportunity. Over the summer, Renaissance Island’s travel center was overrun by eager families and students, all coming to experience the new opportunities available to them in this new place. Fall approaches, and the students prepare…
Around this magnificent school, the founders built a comfortably-designed city, complete with elegantly simple residential areas, and an expansive shopping district. The lush scenery and beautiful beaches naturally complement the additions made by the founders, making Renaissance Island nothing short of an intellectual’s paradise.
Notable locations include:
The namesake. A massive school for advanced learning.
A quiet, grassy park, with some playground equipment for children, jungle gyms, sandboxes, and other necessities. Students often come to relax, or read, or simply hang out here. Up on a nearby hill, several benches sit facing a beautiful view of the ocean, towards the setting sun.
An expansive shopping mall on the east side of the island, this mall contains a multitude of stores, a movie theatre, and other amenities.
Three different beaches, located around the island in almost a triangle pattern. There are some dank caves around the coast of Penseur beach, and the wind blowing through these rock formations causes a curious moaning noise - the subject of many a ghost story in the school.
•Renaissance Line Rail
Solomon's pride and joy, this train system runs in almost a celtic-knot shape, providing transport to and from everywhere on the island. There are stations in each main district, with one Central Station in the direct center of the island.
•Renaissance Travel Center (Airport and Harbor)
The only way to leave, and the only way anyone can arrive. The Travel Center supports both air and sea travel, both for commercial purposes and personal enjoyment - some of the richer students rent docks to keep their own personal vessels in.
Named for one of the founders, the Smith District is home to all kinds of shops and services not found in Argent Mall. Barbershops, dry-cleaning services, used-book stores and all kinds of shops line the streets. A community billboard and a quaint, wide water fountain rest at the center of this area - often, "help wanted" ads and other announcements can be found on the billboard. Other job opportunities and buy/sell sections can be found in any newspaper, found at any local convenience kiosk around the island.
To submit a character, please fill out:
Name: (Self explanatory)
Age: (Self explanatory)
Surface Bio: Their personality as they project it; how they are seen by others, and what someone might take away as a first impression. This doesn't have to go into much detail, as getting to know each others' characters through social interaction and conversation is an integral part of the story. Although the expectation is that the character is an incoming student to Ren High, you are not restricted to this.
Appearance: What they look like. This may be description, or sprite, or both.
Family: Whether they live with anyone, or came with family to the island. If not, simply say so.
And post in the topic. HOWEVER, you must also submit privately in a message to me:
Character’s psychological and emotional profile: What the character is truly like, underneath the surface. What their character wants, desires, any personal problems they have, secrets, fears, etc…

Once we have a couple players, we will begin. Time will pass in days, beginning in September a day before the beginning of the school year. Each school day, students will have class, and then will have the option to take ONE action – ie., visiting various locations around Ren Island, hanging out with a friend, extracurriculars, etc. – before returning home. Other actions may eventually become available at home as the story continues.
To succeed, students will have to do well in school, and strive to improve themselves. By making friends, however, and strengthening their personal relationships, they strengthen themselves in ways not yet known to them...
Throughout the course of the school year, players will have to balance their social and academic obligations with the investigation of a series of most peculiar happenings… make your choices wisely, and you may uncover the truth. Choose poorly, and things will be forever unsolved…
