I'm going to try to write an RPG. It won't be as good as AgentP's, but it should be ok. I'm going to write how I feel comfortable of first getting a backstory from you guys and then adapting that to another story that I already like in my head. It should be a middle-of-the-line RPG. I'm going to try to get out four updates a week(with a two day deadline per answer)
Also all applications by a soon time. When I feel comfortable I'll start.(also my Madden log will keep going just to know that)
The application was made by AgentP by the way. Forgot to say that.

Portscord is a weird town filled of a bunch of weird kids. However one thing have always prevailed in Portscord, baseball. It's always been the most popular sport even with football, basketball, and any other sport etting more and more popular. There are of course other sports, but everyone in this town has played baseball except the girls. It's a small republican town in south jersey. The School System is technically allowing girls to play baseball, but they've made baseball a cut sport where only girls are cut. Times are changing, but one thing is sure to prevail in Portscord, baseball.
You see Portscord, even with a technical town government with a whole council and mayor, has always had dual sports with another city of Millwood. Millwood is a huge township, which for years has accepted Portscord kids in every sport. They are more open minded to ideas about sexuality and social issues that are almost forbidden in Portscord like abortions and being gay. Micah Thompson was cut from the Portscord team and will probably play for Millwood's godawful team. Micah Thompson always killed Millwood's team. Last year, Micah Thompson hit 15-16, hitting 7 home runs, 3 doubles, and 3 triples. He drove in 30 runs against the Millwood team.

Baseball wise, Micah was a speedy, power hitter. He likes to play center and can play a good second base. However he has recently struggled with strike outs. However his talent usually shows over that as he has always been better than most. He was a star in Portscord on their team so when he came out as a Transgender so did his fame and most of his friends.

Stats are Micah's against Middle Schoolers, stats will decrease each level.

That one above was my more simplified version. It was a rough draft and it became this. All is true, but if facts go against each other look to this one.
It's a small town in South Jersey. It's a small Republican town that was a big port when America was colonial, but not as much anymore. However today, the little town is dedicated to one thing, baseball. They don't accept any real unconventional idea except in baseball in strategy and stats in baseball. That's about it.

And in this town is Micah Thompson. Micah Thompson came from Seattle, Washington when he was two. He visits his grandparents and his extended family every year or two. Since that time, he has become transgender. He came out last year and people in this town hate him for that. If that's not enough for people to hate him for, he's mixed, black and white. He has always though been "one of the guys" liking boy things like sports and other things. Plenty are trying to take him down, but he is good at one thing baseball. He's a nice guy, super friendly, and doesn't get anxious as much thanks to meds.
Micah lives with his dad and his sixteen year-old step-sister. They have both gotten used to this transgender thing with the pronouns and all of that. His dad was always open minded to this kind of thing. However his mom hasn't really been in the picture and is only supported by his father. However even though they are in the "middle class", they are a poor part of that class, but happy with everything they have.
Micah's story is just beginning as he walks into Portscord's only middle school, St. Peter's School. Even though it is a private school, it's relatively cheap. It's supposed to be $5000, but because of his dad the only one supporting him the cost was decreased to $1000.

Micah decided to make waffles. It only took ten minutes while AgentP dressed and brushed his teeth. He also showered.
Took his meds, and went on the bus.
He listened to some old jazz and some old funk. He mainly listened to Stevie Wonder.
After that he went into school.
His first period was physhics.

yikes i think it's 9.8 m/s^2 (meters per second squared)

"yikes i think it's 9.8 m/s^2," a very, very unsure Micah answered.
"Incorrect," said Micah's physics teacher, "It's negative -9.8 m/s^2."
"Man I'm a *(censored)* idiot," Micah muttered.
-1 IQ Points.

What are IQ Points? Oh you didn't read the manual. Well I don't blame you. Anyway IQ points are what decide what Micah's grade will be. You start with 100 IQ Points and if you have a 100 IQ, you will get a 75. If you have a 150 IQ Points, you will gain a 100. It will be nearly impossible to get 150 IQ Points.

That class was very long to Micah. Classes were each exactly an hour, except lunch which was only 30 minutes.

Next was math class. Micah was not smart, but somehow was in advanced math. So he was taking Algebra I.
The teacher went on and on about graphing.
Micah fell asleep. His teacher being funny put headphones on Micah's ears and blasted music.
Classic huh?
After that his teacher asked him a question about what he was teaching with this question.

"How do you find the vertex when graphing a parabola?" asked the hilarious math teacher.

Take the derivative of the function and find its zeroes. Then get accelerated to 11th grade calculus.

"it's... oh crap yeah you just gotta find the x and y intercepts," said a very confused, deaf Micah.
"Incorrect," said the funniest math teacher ever, "It's x=-b/2a and then plug that into the equation."
