Kirby Academy for the Gifted


Often when parents have a special child, they're unsure of how to handle it. Some children are born special, while others are given a gift, or make one themselves, and the parents are often confused, and sometimes frightened by it. These years, when your child is still learning and exploring their talents, is when they need the most help, attention, and guidance.

For over a hundred years, the Kirby Academy has been teaching gifted children about themselves and the world around them through top notch facilities, teachers, and programs. No matter what your child's gift, we have a program that can be tailored to suit their needs perfectly, and give them the support they need to continue to be a successful, productive person living a normal life, while still allowing them the freedom to be themselves.

Recently remodeled, the Kirby Academy was founded over a hundred years ago just outside of Cove, Oregon, the Kirby academy was originally intended for children who's gifts were more of a physical nature, and was meant as a safe haven where the children didn't have to worry about the outside world. As the world changed, so too did the children, with new children with different needs being born. The Kirby academy expanded both location and staff, and welcomed them with open arms.

Kirby Academy offers a full curriculum of kindergarten for children who were born special, all the way through their standard academic career at grade 12. On campus boarding is provided, with dedicated caretakers on staff and available 24 hours a day.

With many of the alumni returning to the school and hired on as staff, the Kirby Academy quickly became the foremost school for children with these particular gifts, and a safe place where your child can learn and grow, while safely exploring their new gifts with the freedom to be themselves. Does your boy fly faster than a speeding bullet? Does your daughter walk through walls? We have just the place for them.


Welcome to the Kirby Academy for Gifted Children.

Reasons to choose Kirby Academy:

Award Winning Curriculum (K-12)
Specialized Staff suited to your child's needs
Year Round Calandar
Uniforms provided
On campus boarding



Yes! I Am working on yet another project. This one is based off of the idea of a school for young super heroes. Or even villains! Who can say?

The format will be simple board, episodic and freestyle, with any combat or challenges being more based on description and cleverness around one's established skills and powers, rather than my rolling a D20 and ignoring the results for what sounds cool anyway.

Players will have some options: While I'll be posting a list of the archetypes, along with relevant information about them, players are free to come up with their own if it doesn't fit. While the school provides uniforms, the students will also be allowed to wear their own for most classes, rather than the uniform associated with their powerset.

That being said, players can also pick to be a student (First or second year at the school, actual grade is largely unimportant.), or an instructor for a standard class (Math, Science, Standard History. Gym is taken, sorry!) along with a specialized class (Elastics 101, Intro to Flying, or Mecha Shop, for example).

Feel free to chime in if this sounds at all like anything you'd like to participate in, and I'll start laying down the ground work like I did with Null's Game.

As awesome as that form up there is, it sadly doesn't work out very well due to the format and fonts and whatnot.

Anyway, here's a sample for you guys:

Name: Amber H. McKenzie
Codename: Alpha
Height: 64 inches. (5'4)
Weight: 117 lbs.
D.o.B: 5/1/1999 (13 years old)
Approx. Date of emergence: 4/17/2012
HIghest Grade Completed: 6th.
Education Status prior to attendance: Active (Homeschooled due to gifts)
Description of gifts: Alpha can transform herself into any animal, real or fictional, that she can clearly envision herself transforming into. Animals she has never seen before are far more difficult and exhausting than those she has.
Reason for Attending: Alpha's gifts, mixed with an overactive imagination, often lead to unexpected and disruptive transformations when her mind wanders.
Additional info: Alphas power is extremely exhausting, and excessive transformations in too short a period leave her dangerously drained. This also leads Alpha to be a heavy eater, particularly after classes pertaining to her shapeshifting.
Hey there! Can I give you a hand?

APPLICATION FORM

PLEASE PRINT ALL TEXT
=================================================================
First Alan MI E Last Dougall
Codename Drow Height 5'11" Weight 188 lbs
DOB 11/ 1/1996 (MM/DD/YYYY) Approx. date of emergence 5/17/12
=================================================================
Highest grade completed 9th
Educational status prior to attendance Expelled, behavioral
issues; 3.8 GPA prior to emergence, 1.6 at time of expulsion.
=================================================================
Description of gift(s) According to the people who have studied
our son, he is bonded with a "magical symbiotic entity", usually
dormant and undetectable. When active, his skin becomes coal
black, his eyes and hair silver, he becomes stronger and more
agile, regenerates injury, and gains very heightened reflexes
from the symbiote's hypersensory awareness. He can camouflage
to all senses and pass through stone and earth unimpeded.
=================================================================
Reason for attending Alan's performance in school has plummeted
since his "emergence". He was an excellent and driven student
when he was swimming, but his powers disqualify him from
competition and caused several records he held in his age group
to be tossed out. He's coped very negatively to date. It's our
hope that an environment like Kirby will help him get back on
track academically by helping him better understand his gift.
=================================================================
Any other information relevant to your child's application?
The "drow" symbiote offers him no abilities while dormant and
is repelled by direct sunlight. Alan has no conscious control
over the transformation, so far it has only occurred when he is
injured or in high stress situations.

First Lucja MI Last Wójcik
Codename Pryzmat Height 5' 3" Weight 106 lbs
DOB 8/15/1996 (MM/DD/YYYY) Approx. date of emergence 9/ 7/2012
=================================================================
Highest grade completed 9th
Educational status prior to attendance Not yet enrolled
=================================================================
Description of gift(s) Collection and projection of light energy
Shields, constructs, and hard energy beams
Visible light only, as best we can tell, though we haven't tried
all kinds of light for obvious reasons; infrared, ultraviolet,
and radio definitely don't work.
=================================================================
Reason for attending Worries that the power might endanger her or
others if she doesn't have the proper training.

=================================================================
Any other information relevant to your child's application?
She has little warning before she exhausts her energy, and can
only release as much as she's taken in. Her powers don't weaken
as she runs low, but rather shut off abruptly once she's out.
Make sure she remembers this.

Also, be sure she also remembers that her eyes have no special
resistance to bright lights.

First: Jeremy MI: B Last: Sharma
Codename: Panoram Height: 5' 4" Weight: 110 lbs
DOB: 1/ 2/1997 (MM/DD/YYYY) Approx. date of emergence: 12/24/2011
=================================================================
Highest grade completed: 9th
Educational status prior to attendance: Good Standing
=================================================================
Description of gift(s): Jeremy has displayed some control over
wavelengths. As of this time this has mostly manifested itself in
alteration and emission of light and sound. Other types have not
been fully tested.
=================================================================
Reason for attending: Given our limited means and the potential for
accidents within our community we feel it would be best if Jeremy
were in an environment better suited for helping him learn control
over his abilities.
=================================================================
Any other information relevant to your child's application?
Jeremy is an excellent student. We are confident that with the
proper support he will make good progress in control over his
abilities as well.

DOB 05/01/1985 (MM/DD/YYYY) Approx. date of emergence 07/19/1995
=================================================================
Description of power(s)I can control broadcasting devices and radio

them or get them to bring back Thundercats. Yeah, that was me!

I also look great in tights if that counts.
=================================================================

production, radio production. I'm also liaison for the AV club,
cinema club, and anime club. Don't judge me.

Codename Bluebird Height 5_'5_" Weight Chassis-Dependent, 100~450 lbs
DOB 3/14/2015 (MM/DD/YYYY) Approx. date of emergence 12/25/2032
=================================================================
Highest grade completed __10th___________________
Educational status prior to attendance Discontinued for medical reasons.
=================================================================
Description of gift(s) Astella has been converted to a full-body cyborg
following a car accident during her second year in high-school. The bodies and
utilities therein are of our own design. She is capable of feats of strength, speed,
agility and endurance far beyond that of a normal human.
=================================================================
Reason for attending Astella's unique position as being our first fully
operational human-cyborg conversion following her accident two years ago puts
her in a peculiar situation regarding schooling; she will need a change of environs
and we believed it best she attend a school with other unique individuals.
=================================================================
Any other information relevant to your child's application?
Astella will require access to a larger storage room or unit, as we will be
shipping replacement and alternative bodies for her use during the time she
attends. We will also be shipping her re-charge station which is to be placed
in her intended room in lieu of a bed. She has been trained to perform her own
maintenance and checkups, and therefor will not require any assistance from your
medical personnel if damage should occur.

=================================================================
First Rebekah MI M Last Abrams
Codename Ghost Height 5' 6" Weight 139 lbs
DOB 02/16/1984 Approx. date of emergence ??/??/2001
=================================================================
Description of power(s) Superhuman reflexes, further amplified when connected to power armor systems; machine empathy (when connected to neural interface software); experience in the field of power armor and small mech units
=================================================================
Subject(s) taught Gym class, Applied Kinesthetics
=================================================================
Educational experience (if any) High school diploma, graduate of the Hudson Technical Institute officers' program (comparable to a bachelor's degree in traditional university); later returned to university for a degree in teaching and education
=================================================================

Also: Applied Kinesthetics: What the Hell is It?

In short: it's pretty much a more intellectual version of gym class. Meaning, it's a class that focuses on both physical and mental exercises, so that superpowered students can learn to control their bodies and their abilities more effectively. While it doesn't focus on any one specific power, it does teach basic skills that can apply to a broad range of powers. For example: a speedster would be able to slow down and speed up more efficiently, a student with machine empathy could gain a stronger mind-body connection in controlling machines, etc etc. If anybody has any questions, feel free to ask.

Codename _Rasp___________________ Height _5'11" Weight _165__ lbs
DOB 12/20/1996 (MM/DD/YYYY) Approx. date of emergence 11/30/2009
=================================================================
Highest grade completed_9th______________________
Educational status prior to attendance _Good _standing___________
=================================================================
Description of gift(s) Anything inorganic that Karif
touchescorrodes, very quickly, even in environments that make this
impossible. Skin contact to metal causes oxidation, and eventually
forms of corrosion that overcome galvanisation and protection.
_________________________________________________________________
The more organic (more carbon) that a property has in it, the more
it's able to resist this effect, with wood and flesh being best.
Karif can't wear inorganic fibre or it just rots, and his belt
buckles and shoe fittings have to be leather, wood, or bone.
_________________________________________________________________
=================================================================
Reason for attending _Karif needs an environment in which
his special needs for physical contact don't cause problems or
harm to school property. Also, as a byproduct of his appearance
and his ability to cause damage to his environment, we seek ways
to ensure that he does not have any reason to fly within the US.
_________________________________________________________________
Karif's school progress so far has been extremely stilted, and
rapidly more socially withdrawn. We hope that that the Kirby
academy's inclusive schedule and differentiated students will be
a good influence and help keep our son from becoming more with-
drawn than he already is.________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________
=================================================================
Any other information relevant to your child's application?
Karif boxes, but usually alone. Thanks to his large size for his
age and his weight, he tends to focus on solitary, individual
tasks. We know he can cooperate, and know that he's capable of
being a contributing student, we just want him to have a chance
to not feel like a stranger in his own home. ____________________

My apologies for allowing the first part to drag on so goddamn long. I basically ended up in a spot where I was like "How in the hell am I going to cut this cleanly to transition into the next part?"

And then I said fuck it and cut it uncleanly just to get it done.

I'll begin the next part, "Haunting in the Underhalls" later this evening.
