Planeswalker Academy: a magical school RP
This is incredibly detailed. I've easily got pages of character, backstory and world saved to different hard-drives, notebooks, or just floating around in my head. For the amount of work I put into this world, it could easily be advanced. However, I really don't want my players to feel restricted in any way. Despite how the world feels to me, I'd like it to be easy to play.
The basic plot in a nutshell:
Magic exists (duh). Everyone is born with the ability, but varying levels of talent. However, an extremely rare fraction of the population are born as planeswalkers: extremely powerful mages with the unique ability to cross between alternate dimensions. Your characters would be planeswalkers, fairly young ones: aged 14-19 (adjusted for species, I'll get to that in a moment.) whose talents have just been discovered. The setting would be mainly classroom, in a fantasy floating castle in another dimension. I will play the faculty, and maybe one student if I get bored, I'll throw lessons, field trips and the occasional crisis situation at your characters, all building up as part of a plot that I already have figured out.
Information for you:
As far as the mundane world goes, it looks exactly like the real world today. However, non-humans are allowed, specifically elves, drow, werecreatures and at most one vampire or dragon. However, this falls under "Our generic fantasy creature is different".
I'll be explaining exactly how when this gets to OOC.
The whole magic thing is a very well kept secret.
Students will only be from earth and it's sub-planes (I'll explain later.)
Have a soul. The only thing that's going to make this interesting is if your character relates to and develops alongside his fellow classmates.
If you're used to roleplaying a soulless combat monster, get out.
If you're used to always being taken seriously, prepare to be laughed at.
If you're used to taking everyone else seriously, prepare to laugh.

I am active-duty military. This may mean, although extremely unlikely, that I could be called off to random ass inconvenient duty at inconvenient times. I'm not gonna say deal with it, but hey, cut me some slack, I work for like $4 an hour.
Finally, don't be an ass. That is all.
