    Hey there folks!
    I'm writing from my phone during a lunch break at work so I'll keep it brief, but I'm really glad I found this place! It seems like just the kind of RP site I've been looking for.

    I go by Dr. Beat, Dr. B, Doc B. or any other variant you can think of. My hobbies are gaming (mostly JRPGs), roleplaying (both forum and tabletop) and watching anime.

    I'm also a budding writer so I spend a lot of time reading and writing. My genre is Middle Grade fantasy so the stuff I read and write is mainly aimed at older kids/tweens. The MG voice is pretty hard to master, so you'll probably see me mostly playing older elementary kids and trying my darndest to make them sound natural. Critiques always welcome!

    I've already got (what I hope will be) a fun first character idea hammered out so I'll be trying to get that posted when I get off work.

    I tend to be on either really early or really late to post and I'm usually not able to chat in realtime too much (though I do participate in Discord chats now and then) so you'll probably be seeing me mostly in threads.

    I am definitely excited not just to RP but also just hang out with a great new community! Thanks for having me!

    Hey Doc B! Sounds like we've got similar hobbies, since I'm also in the JRPG/Anime/RP realm. I'm looking forward to seeing what character you put out!

    Hey Doc B! Nice to have you around. I, too, love tabletop role-playing and watching anime.

    And I totally get you about kids being hard to get right. I have an older kid character, and I sometimes feel like she comes across as too knowledgeable for her age. But it's all chill. We live and we learn.

    If you've got any questions, don't hesitate to ask. You can PM a staff member or just drop into the cbox. We're usually around and we are all pretty chill.

    Howdy hoo Dr. Beat! Glad that you are excited to have found our community here and I do hope that it is just the sort of forum site that you were looking for. We pride ourselves with how welcoming our community is so don't be afraid to bring up possible plot ideas any of our members, including the staff!

    Since you mention that you mostly write older children and in their tweens, I have few characters that might be prefect for your character's first post if you need someone to RP. If you have any questions about the site, its rules, or the setting, do not hesitate to PM myself or anyone the other staff members about your questions. Everyone here is pretty helpful I have found since I joined this site about a year go. I do hope that Starlight Academy is your kind of place and will look forward to seeing you around Dr. B .

    Good luck with hammering out your first character :P

    Hey Doc! Welcome to the site, fellow gamer! My first ever RPGs were JRPGs and they still hold a place in my heart. Hope you find your experiences here to your liking!

    Hey there and welcome to SA!

    So one of the first things I usually do with new folks is tell them that I'm a huge book nerd and invite them to share what they're reading in the "What are you reading" thread.

    BUT YOU ALREADY DID THAT
    so you get instant high-fives from me bro thank you

    Regardless, here's my usual welcome speach: I'm ReD and it's great to meet you, I hope you enjoy your time on SA. If you're not big into hopping in the cbox, there's no worries, but I'm a big fan of the Community Lounge and would love to hear your opinions on very important topics like Pancakes VS Waffles and How you got your Username if you're up for sharing. Otherwise I hope to RP with you in the future~

    Welcome to SA!

    Hey Dr. B, glad to have you aboard!

    A school RP seems like it would be a good place to practice writing younger characters. I usually cheat and just have my kid characters be precocious in certain ways. I get the sense you've spent more time thinking about how to write them than I have, so I look forward to RPing with you and seeing you around more!
