On October 1st, 2015, the roleplay underwent a major restructuring and slight downsizing due to waning player interest and several completely inactive players. A new signup and thread was created, and the RP itself was rechristened as "Welcome to Beacon Next: 2.0".

Beacon Next is a [[SpinOffspring spin-off]] of {{Roleplay/WelcomeToBeaconUltimate}}, expanding on an idea put forward in the Gaiden thread. BN is set 27 years after the start of the last RP, and tells the story of the children of BU's main characters (and some originals). The kids go to Beacon, and have their own wacky misadventures while at the school.

!This roleplay provides examples of the following
following:



* AllThereInTheManual: Most of the worldbuilding surrounding the RP essentially exists just to provide extra context and is virtually all provided through posts in the discussion thread, rather than in-character. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that all world building needs to be given GM permission before being used.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[TheSoulless The Grimm]], just like how they're portrayed in canon ''RWBY'', and which are basically just rampaging, human hating monsters.
* AppliedPhlebotinum: Dust, just like in canon ''RWBY'', is used for everything from transportation to weaponry to complex electronics.
* BiTheWay: Numerous characters are bisexual.



** Iris is a scared ShrinkingViolet, Stormer is an outgoing and brave warrior.

Added DiffLines:

* FunWithAcronyms: Every team name in the roleplay is an acronym.


Added DiffLines:

* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Well, of course.]] From buzzsaw chakrams to ''PoweredArmor'', the characters possess a plethora of cool weapons.
* KillerGameMaster: Grim himself can be this sometimes, just like in Beacon Ultimate.
* TheLeader: Just like in canon RWBY, Ozpin appoints a leader for each team when they survive Initiation. In this game they are:
** Isabelle Nobel of Team MISN
** Ragnaros Remington of Team SSMR
** Relena Vale of Team DRQN
** Connor Whorple of Team ATMC
** Johann Vale of Team JWHL
** James Croire of Team JAMS
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Two dozen different [=PCs=], plus their families, at least 1 non-PC hunter team, a whole bunch of nobles, and counting. This trope is present without a doubt.
* MixAndMatchWeapon: Almost ubiquitous among the players in the roleplay.
* NumberTwo: A unique part of the roleplay, compared to canon RWBY, is that Ozpin also assigns one of these for each team after Initiation. In this game they are:
** Suzune Yukimarimo of Team MISN
** Scarlet Amagi of Team SSMR
** Natasha Lei of Team DRQN
** Mefus Sullivan of Team ATMC
** Halle Wulfen of Team JWHL
** Mint Mallory of Team JAMS


Added DiffLines:

** Among the students, we so far have Relena and Ragnaros, and [[spoiler:Iris and Morgan]].
* SinkOrSwimMentor: Ozpin, just like before. He even slingshots the students off a cliff at the start of the Initiation!


Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfBadass: Much like in RWBY, everyone of note is either a highly experienced monster slayer, or training to become one. And if neither, they are at least likely to be a skilled warrior against human/Faunus opponents.

Added DiffLines:

** Mefus is a friendly bouncy girl that contrasts to the more stoic Cyanea.

Added DiffLines:

** Then there is Selene, who is a lot more outgoing and thrill seeking than her father Remus.
