Something wicked stalks the halls of Black Oak
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4irXQhgMqg

Welcome to 'The Oaks'

Black Oak university is situated in the parish town of Black Oak near Sennen, Cornwall, in the United Kingdom. It is a popular university for international students and offers a wide range of courses from science and technology to art and performance.

Students at The Oaks are usually aged between 18 and 21 but there are also a good number of mature students here. The University offers a wide range of clubs and sports to keep it's students entertained when not studying.

Come and be a part of our community. Enrol into Black Oak now!

...

What they don't tell in the prospectus is that Black Oak has had a strange and dark history, one that touches the lives of all students who study here. There are things that go bump in the night here - and worse.




Black Oak University is a game where you can (re) live your university days as a student. Find excitement, love and romance or just have fun while studying.

Oh, and then there's the darkness that haunts the halls...

This is a guided free form game. The players can create their own stories but the GMs are here to offer help when needed, and they will be involving all PCs in the main plot.

Come and join us.

Current Situation:

Prior to the start of the game the old Dean hung herself and her secretary went insane.

A teacher is abusing the tutor-student relationship whilst comitting his pupil's 'Essence' to canvas.

Something cold waits and watches as students register for courses.

A student has one of her 'fugue' states, resulting in the sketching of a man laying face down in a lake.

After recieving news that a ritual he thought had succeeded had failed, a teacher tells one of his students to keep something dangerous a secret from the new Dean.

A student has been found in her dorm, ritually murdered. Something has been summoned and freed the moment her body was discovered.

We have plenty of room for more students and staff. All genders, orientations and nationalities welcome.

This game is undergoing a reboot and the GMS are working out a detailed and interesting plot.

It will be guided free form, meaning players are free to explore their own characters and goals, but the GMS will also involve them in the terrifying happenings around the university and the town in which it resides.

Student and Staff are welcome.

The NPC list is under transition and is subject to change.

We already have 2 players and 1 maybe.

The game reboot has begun.

The story so far:

The new Literature Professor is speaking to a young librarian when suddenly she loses her footing on the step ladder she is using.

A rather poetically minded ex NYU professor spends a moment of mindfulness in her home before heading off to witch's hill.

A very traditionally dressed Chinese P.H.d student talks musical composition with another student and her music teacher.

Two females students introduce themselves in the rear gardens. As they talk one of them goes into a trance and draws a blurry image of a person hanging from a nearby tree. The other one calms her down by drawing strange sigils in the earth.

There are plenty of PCs and NPCs to interact with.

Current Situation:

The student that drew the hanged person is now having a chat with her nordic companion in the pot and kettle. The University's history teacher is taking a clandestine interest in some aspects of their discussion.

On witches hill the Ex-Professor is having a picnic with the Uni's drama teacher.

Whilst the librarian and literature professor continue to speak in the library, A chemistry teacher sees an apparition who is frantically searching for a book in the library.

Whilst discussing thesis projects, the music teacher suddenly looks towards an apparently empty lake before excusing herself and rushing off. The two PHd students she leaves behind make their way to the Purple Pixie.

The Parapsychology faculty head wakes up with a start. His eyes glow red and he says something in Irish Gaelic. Then he rushes off to the PA's office and demands to speak to the new Dean.

As the student in the Pot and Kettle chat they become aware of eavesdropping history teacher. He apologizes and before leaving addresses them both by name, including mentioning that he knows they are students and that one of them is in his class. Oddly they seem unphased by this obviously creepy admission and instead share a kiss after he leaves.

On witches hill the Ex New York professor has a picnic and a rather odd conversation with the drama teacher about something living in the nearby woods. This is followed by the appearance of a little boy who claims to have seen it and talked to it.

Whilst the librarian and literature professor continue to speak in the library, The now spooked out chemistry teacher is approached by a photography student that spouts poetry.

At the Purple Pixie the Chinese music student is treated to a pasty and a 'Murphie' by her cockney companion.

All desire to speak to the dean forgotten, the occult studies teacher is killing time trying to chat up the dean's adopted daughter and P.A.

A student finds himself in the main hall before registration without his shoes and having lost two hours of time. He retreats to the garden whilst a counselor tries to get him to talk about the blackouts he's been experiencing.

Somebody left the door open...

Apparently a rubber duck named Ducksworth needs a lot of water but that's totally irrelevant.
