Dear lovely members of this roleplay,

The admin team is so very sad to say that the roleplay is closing. As I’m sure you are all aware a lot of drama and problems have made Barlow a much less fun place to be and as we see no way of returning it to its previous state, we think the best thing to do is close it. Us admins don’t have the time, the energy or the motivation to revamp the rp like we want to and while we feel very bad about that, it is what it is. At some point in the drama that happened, a lot of us lost the joy we had previously found in rping. That was never what Barlow was supposed to be like and it is not any longer a good place or a good environment for people to roleplay in.

It saddens us that it has come to this because we have had so many good moments here which we will all miss so much. Barlow have been apart of our lives for a long time now, and as none of us admins are ready to let it go just yet, we will continue to indie roleplay as most of our characters and we will give you permission (if credit is given to the rightful writer of the bio) to use the characters to indie rp yourself if you wish to. We would love to continue rp with you guys, there is nothing we would rather want.

But for now, Barlow Academy as a group does no longer exist. We might find that we miss it so much we want to start up again, but we don’t know when or if that will happen.

And last but not least, thank you. Thank you to all of you wonderful members who have been a part of making this roleplay so special and great. You are all incredible and we love you very much. Thank you for staying through the last months when scrolling down the dash wasn’t always nice, and thank you for all your love and support. We appreciate it dearly.

Thank you for all the happy times!

Love, The Admin team.

It’s time for a change, don’t you think?

My dear lovelies,

As you all might have noticed, this rp hasn’t been all that active and as fun as we want it to be lately. There has been some conflicts and some people have unfortunately had to leave us, but that is all behind us now and we are going to start fresh! We want us all to find that joy we found at Barlow before again, and us admins are working on ways to do exactly that.

So we are thinking of doing a revamp. Every one of you get to keep your characters of course, but we are thinking of changing things quite a lot. We want to make the rp bigger, more like a city rp but still keep Barlow as one of the main locations for your characters. We want to expand so we can have more characters, different ones and also so you will get the chance to plot and write about other environments than just the school. Remember, the world outside Barlow’s walls is a dark place and we want to give you all the opportunity to explore that while still keep a piece of the well-known.

If you are a member and you think this is a horrible idea, please tell us. This is your roleplay too and we want to hear all of your opinions so please don’t be afraid to tell us. More information will be out soon and we urge you all to speak your mind and help us improve Barlow to the best it can be.

And I would also like to thank all you members for sticking around, we are nothing without you. Things aren’t as great as they could be right now, but that will change, we promise you all that. You are all amazing, lovely people and great roleplayers and we love you all!

Thanks for reading.

- The Admins

I think all our beautiful lurkers should send in some apps. We’ve got a lot of drama to be had with our characters and pretty sweet plotlines, if I do say so myself. I’ll be up a bit longer to answer any questions, if anyone is interested! Come hither, lovelies!

❝for the one who sows to his own flesh                           will from the flesh reap corruption,
In a world which is slowly falling apart, where is the rescue?

The year is 2123 and nothing is like it was.
A taste of their own medicine     the people in the world got careless, greedy, lazily wasting money, air, and power. You reap what you sow has never been this accurate, and without an intervention it is expected to get much worse. In a desperate attempt of pulling the splinters of an unbalanced world together where the rich get richer, and the poorer just poorer the government decided to create a shielded little bubble on the deserted countryside. Known as ‘The school of the damned’ and formally called Barlow Academy. The school where the ones with promise would learn to shine, and those who needs to be saved gets saved.
Annabelle Barlow believed they should go back to how things were in the good ol’ days, thus creating a traditional boarding school for a great amount of lucky students to live. The point was to save them from themselves, create a new beginning, make sure there would be a bright future. So the only question which remains is, will the students actually learn to reap what they sow? Or is it too late?
