You awaken in a daze. You look around. You seem to be in a class room. You’re not sure what you’re doing there.
You remember who you are, but not where you are. You seem to recall being accepted to a prestigious school, Hope’s Peak Academy, and showing up at the door. However, everything after that feels like a complete fog.
You notice that there are odd contraptions on the walls, about the size of windows. Confused, you walk outside the classroom and wander the halls of a large expansive school. You hear what sounds a bit like movement coming from a set of large double doors.
With some trepidation, you open the doors and walk inside. The fluorescents burn your eyes for a moment as they adjust from the dimly-lit corridor you originated from. There, you find a gathering group of individuals in a gym.
The crowd seems to be forming around a spot near the center of the gym. The faces around you are frozen, pale, not a single person speaking. You edge your way closer to the focus of the group.
Lying in the center, was the body of a girl. A pool of blood had formed around her body. There was a large splotch of blood on her clothing which itself was torn at the spot. The way she stared off to the side blankly told you enough - that she was dead.
Suddenly, movement from further inside the gym catches your attention. From behind the podium on the stage you only just noticed, a large black and white stuffed bear bounces up atop the podium, arms flailing, a permanent half-grin across its face. It would only make sense in this bizarre nightmare that this thing was responsible for the body lying on the floor.
“Eh, sorry about that, I got a little carried away it seems,” the stuffed animal said. Its voice was shrill and cartoonish. “She woke up a little earlier than the rest of you. But she was planning to ruin the game for everyone, and I just couldn’t have that.” It was now that you saw the bear was brandishing a handgun in one of its hands.
“Oh, don’t worry, I won’t be doing this again,” it said throwing the gun haphazardly behind the stage. “Well, everyone is here, so let’s get started then!”
“Welcome to my Despair Academy! I am the headmaster, Monokuma. I’ve set this up as a training exercise to test new recruits for our cause. Who are we, you ask? We are the Remnants of Despair. We relish in suffering and sadism and all that good stuff,” the bear said with a laugh.
“As you might imagine, though, without a challenge it’s not much of a test! So, the rules will be simple… Have you ever played mafia? It’s just like that!”

If you are participating in this game and not Darryl, you will have received a role PM with your role abilities. Here is an example of what one looks like:
Welcome to Despair Academy!
You are an Ordinary Student!
You are aligned with Hope. You win when only Hope-aligned players remain.
You do not remember your classmates, but clues lead you to believe that you perhaps knew them in another life.
Oh, you’re just ordinary. You might have a super high-school level ability, but it’s probably something useless and not worth mentioning anyway, like fishing. Your only power is the ability to vote. Kinda lame, I know. But hey, you can do a lot with that power! But so can everyone else in the game… sorry. Just, uh, do your best.
Feel free to PM me any questions about your role.
