Sorry guys! House move and lack of internet....dratted Sidereals! I'm back now with your plot, so I hope you enjoy it. Anyway, as you've all said, time for the game!
You all wake up, eat, dress and get ready for school. There are instructions on the first day for enrolment and explanations of the lesson plan.
It would seem that, this year, they're trying something a little different: you're being put into groups and expected to work on a group project in order to pass the year. You're being expected to come up with an innovative piece of magitech, designs and prototype included, for something practical. Each of you is expected to contribute in some way, and the Magitech tutor you share is keeping an eye to make sure you don't leave all the work to one individual.
Obviously, being player characters, you've all been assigned together for convenience's sake and given a map with areas of first-age and shogunate ruins/tombs/places of interest. Each group has been given the same map, and most of the other groups are pootling off to one or all of them hoping to
find something and blag it off as original. I haven't had time to draw a map, seeing as how I'm in transit atm. You will be given reasonable provisions by the school and your families, but don't expect to be allowed to go too far from the school: about 300 mile max. Well, not without sufficiently good reasoning.
OOC, if you have any particular places in the area you wish to go to, feel free to converse with each other about it and decide on your plan of action.
The point of the change in the curriculum is in order to encourage the lessons of self-sufficiency, as well as team work and initiative. Lookshy has plenty of weapons of mass destruction and magitech, but it wants to see what the more idealist youth can develop in order that it may make better use of its resources.
