Roleplay / After The Academy

After the Academy is a Ragnarok Online Play 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 Assassins Guild and Rogue Guild. To facilitate battles, they use a dice system.

The Roleplay is now in its second story arc.

This roleplay provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: Claire/Emily, Dolly.
  • Action Mom: Auriciel, although her 'son' is not biologically hers.
    • Hazme, for being an actual mom and melee bard
  • Always Chaotic Evil: All aggressive monsters. MVPs have a variety of alignments, though.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: Iroi's reaction after Hazme crawls on a bed over reach a basket at the bedside table.
  • 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.
  • Bishounen/Mr. Fanservice: So many, it's actually easier to name those that aren't.
  • Butt-Monkey: Silverius, in-character and in the discussion threads. Is it Bully a Priest Day yet?
  • Body Snatcher: Hemming, in the process of coming back from oblivion. Sid was also a temporary victim of this, and also Silphene. Apparently one priest gets possessed every few years.
  • Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: What certain people *cough* are expecting to happen with Gregory.
  • 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
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Croix for his "Mistress". Who happens to be High Wizard Kathrynne Keyron.
    Even so, if he wanted to become strong enough to achieve his goals, and probably even marry his mentor one day, he needed to think outside of the box.
    • Then again, he's only 2-3 years younger
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Emily and Shara. Also Kureha and Milie
  • Wife Husbandry: Apparently what Auriciel is doing with five(?)-year-old Ceaz.
  • Proper Lady: Strangely enough, no females are exact fit. Shara, Young-jae and Milie might count, but the closest example is a male one: Bastiaan.
    • Momohara is physically one, although a guy and is snarkier than your usual examples of these.
