    Orientation for 1st Years

    Post  Mathilde Laventure on Fri May 20, 2011 9:55 am

    With the 1st Years gathered in the Atrium, the Headmistress stepped forward to tell them of the coming weekend:



    Welcome to the Salem Witches’ Institute! We hope you will enjoy your stay within our school.

    Before we begin, I would like to make an announcement.

    Every year, the Phoenix always picks a house that "she" feels has met her challenge well in Sorting, and adjusts the Coven Points to reflect her feeling. She has made her decision for this year, and has made her choice--

    5 points to Coven Morrigan!!

    Congratulations!


    For all 1st years, you must be wondering what type of school this is. I assure you, the Flame sort, while intense and downright frightening, is set up to test your abilities within our beloved halls.

    I will not keep you too long, I can see your eager faces ready to get out and explore, but there are a few things we need to discuss. Once I have finished, I will open the floor to take questions.

    Your School Uniform
    The SWI Student Manual: http://theswi.forumotion.com/t50-swi-student-manual, has been updated with the following information:

    School Uniform and Dress Code, located in the same chapter as Common Rooms and Dormitories.


    Class Schedule

    Classes will take place over one real time week. For each week, one RP day has elapsed. Students MUST make it into their classes before the professor has begun to instruct. This will vary depending on the class and the instructor. Students who skip or arrive late will have coven points deducted and may have to serve detention.

    Classes will occur at different times of day, but for convince, will open together. Therefore, students can RP in both open classes at the same time.

    All students are required to take classes.

    No Classes: All 3rd Years and above may take trips to the Town of Dunwich. (If you have reached your 3rd year and cannot see the Town of Dunwich forums, PM Mathilde Laventure.) 1st and 2nd years may RP anywhere within the walls of SWI.


    All students are also encouraged to request a Challenge. The place to do that is here: http://theswi.forumotion.com/c8-disciplinary-chamber. All challenges should be completed on days off or during weekends.

    Each school year will include three classes in each subject. Final exams may be given… Pay attention in your classes and be prepared, or your coven may lose a serious amount of points.

    A note about RP time:
    At SWI, we are running on RP time. You will find the current Date and Time at the top of the forum. Make sure you take note of these when you post your threads. All threads MUST include a general time of day—Morning, Afternoon, or Evening, depending on what time of day they were created.

    Once you have declared a time in your thread, TIME STOPS for all characters involved IN THAT THREAD. As the forum advances in RP Time, your character (and all others involved), remain frozen in whatever time is listed in your RP description.

    Once you leave the thread, you rejoin current RP time. It is assumed your character has moved forward in time and has eaten/used the restroom/slept/or whatever else might have been missed while in your thread.

    Be sure you are paying attention to any changes to time at the Official Level. Missed classes WILL NOT be excused. Once you see classes open, wrap up your RP and rejoin RP Time.


    Questions, Concerns, Problems, Thoughts…

    From time to time, you may run into a snag here at school. What does my uniform look like? What is expected of students when in class? Can I really god-mod the adults?

    For anything that is not addressed in our Student Manual: http://theswi.forumotion.com/t50-swi-student-manual, students are encouraged to post in the ooc thread, located here: http://theswi.forumotion.com/t139-ooc-questions-ideas-problems-concerns


    Now, off to bed with you all! And enjoy the coming days, because after this weekend its going to be time to learn.
