RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

-SoulRiser

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

[GOSS 3] Luvania

Luvanian Religion (Luvanism to outsiders, but more often referred to "The Way")

The Five Paths
Luvanian Government

Economic System

Population and Culture

Leaders

Hello, it is my pleasure to announce our admission into the League of Nations. It is my hopes that the League will welcome us with open arms, and that they will see what great pets our jaguars make. It is true that our way of life allows us to accelerate our training in the magical arts, but we are not a threat to any one in any way. Only a few of us can wield weaponized magic, and they have pledged to fight for the League as long as they stay loyal to the Lady. Don't cross her... Who am I kidding, anyone who crosses her is an idiot. (Turns stern.) Remember that.-Mr. Oxford

Prophecy of the Admission
I welcome all who come to the table.
Our banquet is full of foods and meat.
The League will serve all who are able,
but one nation will only share deceit.

The Lady

THE NATION OF ARISYAN HAS INSULTED OUR LADY AS WELL AS OUR NATION ITSELF. STATEMENTS FROM THE GRAND MAGI ARE BELOW.

(03-30-2015 02:19 AM)The Grand Traitor Wrote:  I find this topic (the Lady's offer)... superficial. Arisyan is not interested in trivial exotic animals.

(03-30-2015 02:12 PM)The Grand Traitor Wrote:  An arrogant practioner can't master anything beyond their own inflated image. We will decline your request.[...] We seek natural development of our territory, not the taint of what you call magic. Those are given the fish, never learn to catch it, Oxford.

DO AS YOU WISH.

RE: [GOSS 3] Luvania

(OOC: Is Arisyan the deceitful one? Just wondering. Oh and I should mention, since I havent yet updated my nation page, that the Pywith are like some naturalist zen taoists. Mother Nature is like the collective Tao force of all living things that were, are, and will be, and that all power is derived from it. They also believe that the path of balanced life between good and evil within.)

RE: [GOSS 3] Luvania

(OOC: At this point, technically. The Lady is basically an omniscient human, which means all her prophecies have truth, but they often have subjective opinions in them. We won't know until it fully comes true what exactly it entails. She could be talking about a general betrayer, or maybe you are "deceiving" your nation into thinking Luvania has nothing to offer. Time will tell, but it seems Oxford has pegged you as the deciver of the council.)

---
(A man in a jet blue suit stands over a science lab. This lab is filled with different feral mammals being magically tested on. The man has short silver hair, and a surface piercing on his left temple.)

So, what are you doing here?-Adolph Bluesteel

We're mapping the minds of new species of mammals, so that we can perfect our spells with new animals. We're hoping to get wolves and cows in households by the end of the year.-Scientist

That's good. This process is humane? No pain?-Mr. Bluesteel

Nonono, Sire. all the animals are sedated. And, once it's mapped enough to experiment with alterations, a backup of that animal's original brain is saved, so we may revert back to it if anything goes well.-Scientist

(Bluesteel smiles) I'm impressed. Keep up the good work.-Mr. Bluesteel.

-----

(Jack Who Gives to All is driving his truck into the city to get more equipment for his farm. He is wearing a plane white tunic and trousers, his brown hair shoulder length, and has a piercing on his right eyebrow. As he's driving, he hears cries in the alleyway.)

What the- (Jack gets out of his truck.) Hey... HEY!!!

(He is greeted to two Strong men beating up on Arisyan man, who is badly injured. When the two men recognize him as the Messenger of the Caring, they flee, leaving the man bleeding on the pavement.)

HOW DARE YOU BEAT UP AN INNOCENT MAN, HOW DARE YOU!!! YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!! (To the man) Okay... I can stop the bleeding, can I use magic on you?-Jack

(The man nods, and Jack assess his injuries after repairing his skin.)

You have three broken ribs, and your leg and your shoulder are in bad shape as well. You're going to be fine, but we'll need to get to the hospital. One's just a quick drive away, don't worry. -Jack

(Jack gets the wounded Arisyan into his truck and gets him to the emergency room. He doesn't leave his side until the next day.)

---------

(In a guard tower on the Western Border of Luvania, Ashlee Deathbringer looks into a forests of Arisyan, her second in command right next to her. She has a septum piercing. On one side, her black hair is buzzed cut to the height of an inch. On the other, her hair falls beyond her torso, and is bleached white. She is wearing a black army uniform with a purple vest.)

Why do you think they refrain from using those for lumber? Do you think they're hiding something?-Ms. Deathbringer

I'm not sure, Sire. I believe that they preach oneness with nature? That would explain why they're so primitive compared to us. I'm sure we can take them if the time comes.-Advisor

Soften your ego, we never really know what they're capable of. One thing's for sure. Arisyan is a nation full of idiots. Nature is not the way to bring peace and harmony. Nature will appear in the form of a dragon and burn everyone they love. I was a victim of nature, and the longer they hold onto that philosophy, the more victims will be made. With the recent statements, I think it will be best if they learned that quickly.-Ms. Deathbringer

(A few men of the Strong line the unguarded border. They begin to project fire onto the forest's trees.)

[GOSS 3] Luvania

(In a workshop filled with people making magical food heating devices, a woman with shorter black hair and a piercing on her right ear. She's wearing a simple grey dress, like what someone would wear to a while collar job. She is writing on a board with a quill, investigating what's going on in this workplace.)

Well, Chester, it seems everything is in working order. I don't see what that complaint was about, when this place is probably the most impressively humanitarian workplace I've seen. I just need to do a few private interviews in the back room and we'll be done here!-Ms. Smith.

I'm not sure if that's necessary, Jane. We just received a huge order, so we'll have to kick our production up a bit. That means no distractions.-Chester

Oh, I completely understand, sir! I just need you to do one thing for me, then. GUARDS!-Ms. Smith (The guards restrain Chester, and Smith takes out a ring that temporarily blocks all magic. When the ring is put on Chester's finger, the once happy workers grew exhausted and miserable. A couple of them started begging for food and water, and one woman started sobbing at her desk.)

Just as I suspected... He was using a happiness charm. We can only assume that he told overseers not to come in today, and that the place is unusually clean. Shut it down. (Turns to Chester.) Usually I would only take you into custody, but that charm proves that you have no right to have these- -Ms. Smith (She takes out a small tweezers like device, and cuts out his two piercings. Chester collapses as the magic leaves his body, and Ms. Smith goes to comfort the workers.)

(OOC: Jesus Christ, sorry about that. We don't need revivals already.)
