Quick FAQ

Check out the Guidebook below for complete information on the group.

:bulletred: How do I join the group? :bulletred:
Fill out the application and submit it to the Students folder. If the application is accepted, you will be sent an invite.

:bulletred: Do you have to be an artist to join? :bulletred:
No - you can ask someone else to make your application picture (or commission it). Other submissions can be roleplays or stories.

:bulletred: What are the activity requirements of the group? :bulletred:
One deviation (roleplay, story, art) per three months. You don't have to pass your classes but your student might be sad... granted, it's not hard to pass a class if you turn in a quick picture, short roleplay, or short story twice in three months.

:bulletred: I'm intimidated by the group. I don't know if I'm good enough? :bulletred:
Well, you shouldn't be! We have a large range of roleplayers with lots of different skills. Beginners to experts... you'll learn a lot while you're here, or teach a lot. But everyone's welcome.

:bulletred: How many classes do I have to register for? :bulletred:
Minimum one, maximum three.

:bulletred: What creatures can I use for my student? :bulletred:
Anything supernatural or paranormal - but ensure the character isn't too strong as a beginner.

:bulletred: What submissions do you accept? :bulletred:
Pretty much anything - we accept logged roleplays, short stories/long stories, artwork (traditional or digital), plushies or other traditional work of your characters -- as long as it's related to your OW character or another OW character, or the recognizable setting.

:bulletred: What is EXP used for? :bulletred:
It is most useful in tournaments, but as a general rule, EXP gauges how strong a character is in comparison to his/her/hir peers.

:bulletred: Where do people roleplay? :bulletred:
Get new partners by commenting on apps of characters that interest you. You can also join the Skype Group and join into random small RPs that start up to flesh out your character and get others used to them, or ask if anyone wants to start one with you privately.

:bulletred: How do I join the Skype Group? :bulletred:
Send your Skype username to viralremix to be added to the group Skype Chat.

Valentines Day Event~

I hate this day. *he sighed* And you should hate it equally too, because the phantasms are up to their usual tricks. As if you didn't see enough love potions being tossed around and infiltrating the water, you will surely be seeing more of them as the hours continue toward the holiday.

If for some reason you voluntarily want to be part of this nonsense, then by all means, sign up for the event below, but don't be surprised if ... frankly, something awful happens.

:bulletpink: Valentines Day Event :bulletpink:

COMMENT HERE to get added to the event!

On Feb 1, everyone who joins the event will be paired up for a date! Hohoho~

If you want to submit an existing pair, go ahead, just say both characters' names in the pair.

ROLEPLAY your newly paired characters going on a date! Do it!
You should draw them too, but it's not required.

EVERY PAIR will be given a RANDOMLY SELECTED OTHER PAIR to make a crackbaby for! The stork is calling, are you going to deliver something nice to your pair on valentines?

Or maybe something... utterly horrifying...

:bulletpink: CRACKBABY :bulletpink:

OW Crackbaby Meme by viralremix

Submit your assigned pair's crackbaby on this meme. Make it creative! It can be any age, from newborn to teenager.

If you are two artists, do a collab! Or one draw, and another write a story and a short profile. Just make sure both people contribute somehow.

When you get your crackbaby, if you and your partner want to keep it as canon you can. Be warned, babies tend to get eaten in OW... but there's a rumor there's a daycare starting in the shadowmancy building anyway.
