'So Shiny, So Chrome' takes place 13 years after The Fall, a combination of the Oil Wars that came to a climax with a nuclear event. Our setting is the Wasteland, once the Australian outback. Wildlife mutated by radiation prowls the wasteland; weather is harsh and highly unpredictable; roving gangs of survivors fight for what remains of precious resources.
What a day, what a lovely day.
----- Season: Winter Weather: Days 8°C/Nights -10°C
Winter has descended once again on the Wasteland as merciless as ever. Days are cold, and with little cover the high winds are all the more biting; even without snow, hypothermia and frostbite are a constant threat. The only relief is that many of the Wasteland's creatures are in hibernation.
The islands are home to a wide variety of beings, from the gifted, to the mystical, to the downright inexplicable. It is also home to Starlight Academy, the world's premier academy for all things extraordinary.
The Academy actively seeks out the supernatural and gives these students a place to call home where they can receive the finest education, and master what makes them unique.
Starlight Academy is a self-hosted, freeform modern fantasy roleplay that has been going strong since July 10th, 2005.
Our site is mobile-friendly, with a variety of skins. We allow students, teachers, and civilians of all types. We also allow open species creation.
We hold monthly events and challenges, and have a large, active and diverse community of players from around the world.
Starlight does not have strict activity requirements or activity checks. We have no limit on the number of characters you can make, and we allow personal art, animanga faces, and real life play-bys to be used for characters!
Roleplayers of all skill levels, characters types, and plots are warmly welcomed!
