After the Academy is a Ragnarok OnlinePlay By Post roleplay site. Although based on the MMORPG, it takes liberties with the lore, plot, and even characters. Several of the game's NPCs and monsters are now playable; those already taken include the Boss monsters Kiel Hyre, Kathrynne Keyron, and Dracula.Although each character is free to take his/her path, the forum has an overarching plot and several sub-plots, moved along by the admin and participated in by other members. Examples would be the story of the Somatology Labs and the fued between the AssassinsGuild and RogueGuild. To facilitate battles, they use a dice system.The Roleplay is now in its second story arc.
Asskicking Equals Authority: The Guild's (the assassin's guild) leader arrives at his/her position by killing the former guildmaster. The Black Hand, which are more or less his generals and council, are the best fighters in their respective weapons specialties.
Can't Get Away with Nuthin' : An almost meta example: Admins (most especially 42) usually read threads and will sometimes swoop in to add twists to the story, more often in direct consequence to characters' (bad) actions. For example:
boy character ran away from his assassin family and returns => an assassin comes in to punish him with death (he gets around it)
knight accidentally burns down a neighborhood => she gets in-RP punishment
monk socks a priest in public => both get called in by the Church
