Very interested....PM me?
Tower Prep is a secret preparatory high school for students gifted with special abilities. Most of its students have been abducted and are held prisoner here, having no way to escape the school grounds. The students are told that their parents have allowed this and are aware of where their children are, although it is unclear if this is the truth. The school's motto is excellentia per obsequium, Latin for "excellence through obedience", obviously a message meant for rebellious students.
Don't let the short description fool you. I do have an extensively thought out concept behind this idea, but I just left it out because I thought the length may put off some potential partners. Looking for male, or female to play a newly arrived student.
PM me with questions or interest ONLY.
Please note: I WILL NOT be responding to thread expressions of interest (i.e ones posted here).
Spoiler"The Program" seems to be a name for the school's rules and code of behavior. Those who follow the rules are said to be "with the Program." Students sometimes derisively use the term "Proge" to refer to model students.

When not attending class, students can wear what they want (to an extent). Students typically use parts of their uniforms to express their own personal style. It's assumed other personal clothes like jeans, coats, jackets, etc. are either brought in from a student's home when he/she is placed in Tower Prep or purchased at the Tower Prep store using Tower Credits from their Work Study Program.
Students are issued PDAs and netbook laptops manufactured by SatoSystems and are linked to Whisper. Tower Prep PDAs main function is to be a form of student identification in order to unlock a student's personal dorm room and order personal diet meals in the cafeteria. Students send and receive their homework assignments from their netbook laptops. This creates a "paperless" information system that keeps track of students' work and can be accessed by Faculty and Headmaster ("Monitored"). Whisper communicates to students both through PDAs and netbook laptops, typically to remind students of the time till their next class or updates a student on their progress in their classes [i.e. If there is a grade decline on a certain subject ("Whisper")].
Student dorm rooms include 1 bed, 1 closet, 1 nightstand, 1 table desk, and 1 chair for each student. Student dorm rooms have a minimum of 2 students to a maximum of 4 students per room. Additional furniture is most likely issued depending on the size of the dorm room and the number of roommates occupying the dorm room.
The school's faculty members are known only by their titles, not names. For example, the science teacher is simply called "Science". According to the Headmaster, this is done to keep things "simple" and respectful.
Known faculty include:
While Headmaster runs Tower Prep's operations, he is not the ultimate authority. He must answer to the board of directors, a mysterious group of corporate leaders that apparently own the school.
The school's computer systems are operated by Whisper 120, an advanced artificial intelligence created by SatoSystems.
Groups and activities
Buffer is a sport unique to Tower Prep, and several teams within the school -- each coached by a different teacher -- compete against each other. The Mascot appears to be a Bull.
The work study program allows students to work various jobs around the school to earn Tower Credits.
Monitors are students who have volunteered to enforce the rules and take orders directly from Headmaster through earpieces they wear.
The Rooks are an unsanctioned secret fraternity.
The Tower Prep Network Blog is the school's news blog, similar to a school newspaper.
A model in the Headmaster's office, showing the school's layout. The school grounds include several buildings; the largest building houses the student dormitories as well as some faculty quarters and the observatory. A more modern-looking oval building is the location of the Whisper Room and the buffer arena. There are several smaller buildings, including one with a distinctive tower. These can be seen in the model in Headmaster's office. According to the map, most of these buildings are lecture halls or devoted to specific subjects such as Art or Science. One on the East side is the Administration building.
The Skills Lab is a room set up for students to train their specific abilities.
The forest around the school is called the Forbidden Zone, and no students are allowed there from sunset to sunrise. Laser motion detectors surround the school at night.
Below the main campus buildings is a network of abandoned tunnels. These appear to be part of an older structure that the current school was built on top of. It's not clear what this facility had been, although one room looks like a laboratory. The tunnels look like they were built in the 1940s or 50s. Gnomes also travel through these tunnels, which may be how they move between the school and the forest.
The West Campus is a separate facility located in the forest some distance away from the main campus. It is a detention facility for students who are caught breaking the rules. According to Headmaster, detained students "study in seclusion" there. The West Campus is often used as something of a Boogieman to the students, as the main threat the teachers will use to get students with The Program, is to threaten they will be sent to West Campus.
The school is built on a remote peninsula, but its exact location remains a mystery. It is surrounded by a deep forest, and it is unknown how people travel to and from the outside world. The forest itself is patrolled by gnomes, which seem to act as guards. A large metal wall separates the school grounds from the rest of the world, which is later revealed to be a hologram made by the Whisper system.
