Of course, Signal Lakes is the western tip of the Bermuda Triangle, and the Signal of the Lakes attracts all kinds of paranormal creatures and forces, so there's no telling what these new students might be, or what they might be up to.
As one of the local Teenage Creatures, you find yourself curious about two of the new students in particular. There's something weirder than normal going on in Signal Lakes, random people are having psychotic episodes, and you're sure one of the two new kids knows
One of them is trying WAY too hard to be the new Head Bitch In Charge, total Alpha Mean Girl…but you've got a feeling she's trying a little too hard, that maybe she's secretly insecure and trying to hide it. And the new guy is a shy, Goth-esque artist who seems too timid and bashful to talk to anyone…but you know what they say; it's always the quiet ones you have to watch out for.
Regardless of who's what around here, there's something driving people crazy; you and your fellow Teenage Creatures are going to have to figure out what it is and put a stop to it....
IWATC is a narrative-focused urban fantasy RPG where it doesn't matter how strong your werewolf is, or how fast his vampire is, or how beautiful her fae is…what matters is how these characters feel, what drives them to do things, not how inherently capable they are of accomplishing them. What keeps the viewers of Buffy or Teen Wolf or any other young-adult urban fantasy show coming back every episode? Is it the Monster of the Week? No, it's the angst and drama of the young adult characters' lives, how they face the paranormal shinola they're wrapped up in. Come play a character that could star on such a show, and see how their angst and emotions drive their story.
Player characters in IWATC each have a Trope, summing up who they are or what purpose they serve in the story. If you get a character sheet that says "Ditzy Cheerleader" or "Computer Nerd", you already know how to play that character. The rest is figuring out what it means when your Trope is a Werewolf, or a Ghost, or a Hunter, or whatever.
