Something is wrong. A student returned from a field deployment, and no less than twenty four hours after coming back to school they came down with a horrific fever. A day later, their significant other also came down with it. As well as an allegedly unrelated third student (who everyone knows is totally hooking up with the significant other).
After quarantining the students and a few quick series of tests, the reason for this became apparent. A virus, engineered to latch on to anomalous individuals and cause them to go through a seriously deep fever. How did it get past the usual post field screenings? It was dormant, created to only activate under certain conditions. Those conditions?
It was odd, it didn’t make sense, but after some testing it became apparent that the virus was being transmitted between students who showed any amount of affection to each other. Well, anomalous individuals infected with the virus. There isn’t a way to detect it, or create an antivirus or immunization that can target it effectively, yet. So, to stop the spread and the potential harm it may cause students, the school has to take drastic measures.
Student displays or acts of affection are hereby banned. This is a major health risk! Any student caught performing any of the following will be quarantined in the infirmary as well as given harsh punishment.
Holding hands, hugging, kissing, cuddling, sharing beds,
and anything else that might be seen as physical affection.
If you see students performing these activities, please report them immediately. Only with your help can we keep Sunnybrook safe. Ban will stay in effect until the quarantine is lifted.
This will rely on students (players) to act out on their own, but if a GM sees something going on they will need to direct the character to show heavy fever symptoms and become bed ridden within twenty four hours. If you’re not sure if something counts as physical affection, use your best judgement, what will cause the best narrative roleplay for your character? Otherwise, ask a member of staff.
Event will last one week until a cure can be found, either by staff or by some entrepreneuring students.
