The sun was shining and it was a warm, gorgeous day at Hoenn's ranger school. Some of the upperclassmen had already arrived and in fact many of them had already been given various assignments and tasks all over the world so the islands were mostly quiet.
The permanent professors, along with some of the guest rangers who would be giving lectures and lessons from time to time, were assembled in a large open air meeting hall where the first years would soon be arriving. The head ranger in charge of the academy, a large muscular man by the name of Larmond, looked out at the empty chairs in front of him.
"Even after all these years, you're still excited about this." A voice brought Larmond back to the present. It was one of the guests, a young handsome blond haired ranger who was one of Hoenn's best. The young man was a graduate of the academy, at the top of his class a few years back.
"Will your younger brother be as much trouble as you were Ranger Walker." Larmond looked mirthful, a taunting but gentle smile on his face, a look which caused Jackie Walker to grin as well.
"Of course he will be." Jackie shot back. "He's a Walker after all." It was somewhat of a lie. While Jackie's family was known for being mavericks who didn't always follow regulations, they were also known as a clan as some of the finest rangers the world had seen in recent memory. Jackie's grandfather, father and uncles had all served with distinction and he was well on his way to doing so.
"We certainly expect much from him..." Larmond trailed off, once again losing himself in his thoughts about the latest crop of ranger trainees, once again some of the finest youths from across the regions.
OOC: So this is where you all come in :)
Post your arrivals at the academy (and by extension the meeting hall). Be creative, arrive however you want. I'll post my student signup in the signup thread shortly, which will be kept open as an OOC chat thread. Signups are still open as well, at least for a few more days before anything really happens.
