Plot


On an island tucked away in the corner of the North Atlantic ocean (near Canada), an academy, Forte Academy, has been built there. Forte is not just any ordinary school. It is a school for the privileged, a school for extraordinarily talented people in the arts. It is a school for people with abilities. Of course, to the general public, they represent themselves as a school for talented people.

But that is not all.

In the school, the pupils are divided into two factions. The two factions are quite different but similar at the same time. One wants to use their powers for the good of the world and the other wants to bring destruction to the world if only to let the other humans acknowledge they are slowly killing the world. Ultimately, both factions want to save the world from dying off but with very different ways to make that happen.

At the same time, the management is planning something. They are organizing trips to different countries to allow students to showcase their talents and to bring more awareness to their academy. They want more people to join Forte. It all seems pretty harmless until more and more secrets are revealed. And now for the question.

Just who is the real enemy?


General overview of Forte



The place where lessons (and meetings) are conducted are in the very first building students see when they enter. That building is in the front and is very big, covering the dormitories and cafeteria from view. There is a sports facility, running track, and game room -though more commonly called the student centre- as well. Students do not fight in these areas and the fighting only happens in the courtyard. The courtyard is behind the school and the dormitories and aforementioned facilities are joined together as three buildings. The place in the middle is the courtyard and that's where everything occurs. It is generally agreed upon that fights should only occur in the courtyard and nowhere else.
One more important thing, an invisible barrier surrounds the island which blocks the academy from view. Students travel from the island to the outside world using jets.


Locations in Forte



Rooftop garden. It is quite extensive. In the middle, there is a hedge maze and in the centre of the maze, there is a fountain. There are all sorts of plants and trees and the most notable is the flower bushes. The flowers are of all kind.

Main Block. Main Block or MB for short is where all official lessons and meetings are conducted. Practices can be done either in the rooms provided or in the students' own dorm rooms. Meetings of any sort are conducted in there as well and there is no official rule as to where the meetings can be conducted. The management's office, Gladiolus's headquarters and Deadly Nightshade's headquarters can be found in there as well but no one knows where it is. Rumours say DN's headquarters is the student council room but no one knows for sure.

Dormitories. A place where the students all stay. There are no houses but people are mainly roomed with people of the same faction. The dorms occupy the right side of the three buildings. It is four stories high. The rooms are all double beds and single gender. People of the same grade shares the same room. The fourth level is for staff only.

Cafeteria. It is where the students eat. There are many varieties of food and it is bloody big. It occupies the left side of the three buildings and is beside the game room.

Game room. The nickname is Student Centre. It is placed beside the cafeteria and like it, is pretty darn big as well. There are all sorts of games and consoles. The opening time is after lessons from 5pm to 12am.

Sports facility. It occupies the middle of the three buildings. It is on the first level and is a gym.

Training area. It occupies the last two floors of the middle building, above the sports facility. It is where students can train and master their abilities.

Courtyard. The most important place in Forte. It is where fights take place and also the place where you can find out who belongs to which faction. The gossip mill is here and I stress once again, the most important place in Forte. It is imperative to always check back there. A half destroyed statue stands in the centre. People are waiting for the day it is finally destroyed.

Running track. It's placed in an improbable place. Or maybe quite probable depending on your viewpoint. It surrounds the courtyard and you well, run on it. Need I say more?

Factions



Deadly Nightshade- They control the student council of Forte and the management as well. They have eight leaders, all occupying the seats of the student council but they are shrouded in mystery. Only one person holds complete control over the faction including the other seven leaders. That person is in the management and he created Deadly Nightshade. One of their current short-term goals is to bring down Gladiolus and convert people from there into their own faction. Their leaders (except the head) is issued an accessory to curb their power. This is because when they unleash their ability, it will prove too powerful for the school to take.

Goal: To bring awareness to the humans through brute force.

Them in one word: Destruction




Gladiolus- Strength of character. The number one value. It is also the meaning of the flower. This faction controls the people who are bullied and under appreciated. They have one leader and one second-in-command. One of their current short-term goals is to bring people over from Deadly Nightshade and bring it down. Their creator is dead. Their leaders are issued an accessory to curb their power. This is because when they unleash their ability, it will prove too powerful for the school to take. They have two leaders. One is the official head and the other the second-in-command.

Goal: To bring awareness to the humans through using their abilities for good.

Them in one word: Peace.



How new students join them



Deadly Nightshade and Gladiolus have one agreement with each other and that is to bring a student through a hazing and tell them of their morals and goals. The student can then decide who to join. Of course, the information they get is what the groups tell everyone. No telling who may betray them. The people involved in the hazing get their memories wiped after by the management so that they can't remember who joins what.


Knowing who is in what



There is no definitive way to know which faction someone is in. There are no particular emblems or signs to differentiate each other and only the higher-ups (leaders) know who are in their faction but even they cannot remember everyone so they only memorize the core members. There is the hazing in which some members are involved in but their memories are always wiped after that by someone in the management though whether they know it or not is subjective. As such, it is possible for double agents to function but they cannot get into the faction meetings because they will be checked.

Lessons

Lessons will be differing for people of different grades. Students will spend the rest of their lives in Forte but they are still expected to be keeping up with the rest of the world. Students will spend six years studying or more if they fail the requirements to go on to the next year. The ages of students do not matter so yes, a seventeen year old can be taking the same class as a fourteen year old. It really depends on your age when you first enrol. The lessons for each grade will be different and changes each year.

Lessons start from 8am and ends at 3pm. After which there are 2 hours of mandatory staying in the hall of Main Block and doing self-study. You can do anything during self-study which includes socializing but it is highly recommended you finish all your homework during that time because the workload will be heavy. At 5pm, students can go and do whatever they want. Lessons differ from day to day but there may be repeats.

Lessons will only be conducted from Mondays to Fridays. The weekend is free for you to make up your own schedule. It is forbidden to visit the outside world without permission.

To look at the specific lesson schedules for each grade, refer to here


Ages of pupils

As said before, the ages of pupils do not matter. In fact, I believe I have already covered this subject but to reiterate, the ages of students do not matter so yes, a seventeen year old can be taking the same class as a fourteen year old. It really depends on your age when you first enroll. Let's talk about the lives of pupils AFTER they graduate. They will be presented with different career choices and they will make their own choice but whatever work they choose will be conducted from within the school grounds so yes, you are forever bound to Forte. Most students choose to help the school whether it be a teacher or cleaner. About the minority...you'll find out if you ever reach there. You will of course get your own salary and shift out of your dorm room to a single bedroom.


Hazing

For the love of god, when conducting hazing, do not do anything life threatening. Just conduct a hazing that will bring through the values of your faction and educate them on your goals. Members involved in the hazing will have their memories wiped after including the pupil being hazed. The hazed pupil will wake up in a section that is well-known for having the faction members occupy them. Occasionally, there will be mix-ups but please, do not fear, you won't get killed. Well, unless you do make a fuss. It has happened before.


Uniforms


Uniforms can be worn any way but please, do wear every article of clothing specified here or else you shall face punishment. Blazers can be taken off after school ends at 3pm.

Girls-
Navy blue blazer
Short-sleeved white coloured blouse
School tie
Dark blue pleated skirt

Notes:
Skirts can be of any lengths but cannot pass the knee. Skirts cannot be micromini skirt lengths.
Footwear can be anything.
It is highly recommended to wear leg warmers during the colder months.

Boys-
Navy blue blazer
Short-sleeved white coloured shirt
School tie
Dark blue trousers

Notes:
Footwear can be anything.

Overall notes:
Accessories are accepted and weapons can be carried around.

Abilities and the mutations that can happen



Everyone has only one ability and whilst some are unique only to themselves, abilities can repeat. However, no one ability is the complete same. There are always limits to what one can do with an ability unless one has complete control over the ability. Even then, there are limits.

Raw power is measured on a scale from 1-9999. 1 being the weakest and 9999 the strongest. When someone enters the academy, the raw power will be taken. New power measurements will be taken every six months.

Lessons for your abilities will be divided into different classes:
Elemental [Self-explanatory]
Cognitive [Abilities to do with the mind. Mental powers.]
Physical [Exaggerated aspects of physical abilities.]
Non-classified [Abilities that belong in none of the above i.e. nullification and blood-bending.]

Possible mutations:
Once you obtain your ability, changes may happen to your body. It of course, depends entirely on your ability and the chance of getting some changes are equal, 50-50.

Your hair, eye and body build may change. It is always ability related. So for example, if you can control ice, your hair may become white. Body temperature may change to but it seems to be limited to people with ice and fire abilities only.


Weapons



Weapons are used to channel your ability and allow you to moderate it. Essentially, without your weapons, you CANNOT use your ability. So it is best to bring it around.
