School Wide Plot
On February 6th, 2009, a virus is going to break out at TJS. What is special about this virus is that it skips humans completely and only affects those with supernatural DNA. The more human you are, the less affected you are. The virus works much like the flu virus- aches, fever, coughing, sneezing, sore throat, vomiting, etc. The further removed the DNA from human, the worse the symptoms will be. Lycans, vampires and full blooded demons will suffer it the most. Anyone who has yet to reach puberty will be rapidly aged 5-7 years, depending on race/human mix. It is possible for someone to die from the sickness.
But that's not all! Right before the outbreak, Danvers is going to get a huge snowstorm, which will lock TJS down so no one can leave or get in. The official virus begins on the 6th, and outside help with a cure will arrive on the 13th, though it doesn't work instantaneously and some people will need a few days to recouperate (estimate until the 16th for those who were more afflicted). Yes, this may ruin valentine's day, sometimes these things happen.
What you need to be aware of/plan for: - Younger characters will age! Unless your kid has hit puberty already, they're gonna grow older. Either get them off campus (and keep them off) during the duration, or find them an older PB.
- There will be NO LEAVING CAMPUS throughout the storm/sickness. If you don't want your characters affected, get them off campus before evening of the 6th. They will not be allowed back until after the storm passes. Characters living off campus will either stay there, or they need to find a reason to be on campus that night.
- The phones/internet at TJS will work, but sporradically. Power failures are likely.
- Cold and flu medicines might help alleviate some peoples' symptoms, but not by much. They're just gonna have to suffer this one out. Withes may try to find some remedies, but since they don't know how the virus works it's unlikely they'll get anything useful, especially since they'll be sick themselves.
If you have any more questions, please post them here so we can be prepare answers before the plot arrives.
