[OPEN] Magical Menagerie

Post by Ailis » Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:34 am

You're picking up your mail when a flyer on the door catches your eye. It shimmers a little, and you know that this is intended for the eyes of someone like you: a sorcerer. You lean forward to read over the flyer.

Help Wanted!
Seeking experienced adventurers willing to travel to dangerous, deadly places!
For serious inquiries, please contact Maybelle Hopkirk at Maybelle's Magical Menagerie, located at 3442 Windenburg Street, Banff, Alberta.


In a world where magic exists, subtly boiling under the notice of humanity for centuries, two factions have divided those in the know: those who wield magic and those who Hunt it. Sorcerers, as they have chosen to call themselves, work, play, and exist among the non-magical, the ordinary, or mundane folk.



The Setting: This takes place in the same world as the Altsoba RP. It’s a magical world of sorcerers and creatures. More information about the world, the type of magic, and what a sorcerer is can be found here (Details about this setting will be added soon).

The Plot: The Leviathan has been hunted to the point of near extinction. The locals have discovered that, despite being illegal, hunting of the creatures has resumed. Maybelle Hopkirk is the daughter of two very famous Fauna Sorcerers who were known for their work with magical beasts and part of the small group that has documented Leviathans. A few of the locals have traveled to Banff to convince Maybelle and her assistant, Alice, to come and save this wondrous creature. Having agreed, she now seeks the help of other sorcerers, for a dangerous adventure in Jog Falls Environ Forest, India.

Magic Info
General Magic
Magic is done through the use of spells channeled through a wand or even sometimes another medium such as a staff. Either must have a magical core and be made and bound with magic to channel magic energy. Wandless magic can be performed, but it takes an incredible amount of work and dedication. Generally, wandless magic can’t begin to be performed until after specific study in the subject at a collegiate level.

Wandless magic is most easily achieved when practicing gift magic, though it still requires more work and stamina than practicing with a wand or some other means of channeling. The practice of magic, both general and gift, requires energy from the sorcerer. Achieving greater feats of magic requires more than just talent and training, it requires strength and stamina. This is why those who practice duels (whether competitively or professionally) often train through running and other mostly cardio-centered workouts. Performing harder spells requires practice as well as stamina to improve spell quality and overall success.

Performing magic can take a lot out of a person, particularly if they don’t regularly practice. Think of it as a muscle; it doesn’t matter that you have a natural ability if you don’t practice. Performing magic requires stamina and energy, things that you can increase by practice. The more you practice, the easier it will become to perform harder spells and mix the more difficult potions.

All spells, both old and new, can be spoken in any native tongue, though most spells may have a higher potency if spoken in Latin or other ancient languages. Most often spells are spoken, and the sorcerer may use as little as a whisper when using smaller and well practice spells, as long as the words are clearly spoken. For unfamiliar spells or higher level spells, it is recommended to speak loud and clear.


Gift Magic
How the gifts work:
When a sorcerer’s magic first starts to show, they will show an affinity for all six of the gifts. Very minor, maybe a little bit of wind picks up when they’re frustrated or a wild fauna might come up to a sorcerer looking for attention. As the sorcerer ages, their affinity for a particular gift will strengthen while the rest will slowly weaken and, ultimately, disappear.

By the age of 16-17, their strongest gift should be clear. At the start of the year, there is a ceremony where 11th years get to announce what their gift is going to be formally. It is also the year they get to start taking classes specializing in their gift whereas previously they were required to take lessons in all of the gifts (the reason being it’s important that they have a basic understanding and respect for all of the gifts).Once your gift is declared, and the ceremony is complete for all declaring students, the lining inside the student’s cloak will change color to reflect their gift (blue for water, red for fire, green for earth, grey for wind, brown for fauna, and purple for clairvoyance). These cloaks are often not worn into adulthood unless in magical only locations, many sorcerers finding other means of indicating their gift (i.e., jewelry).

The Gifts:
Earth:
Physical Center of Tension: Thighs and Seat
Source of body dynamics: Strength
Personality traits: Steadfast and dependable. Introverted. Very grounded. Realistic.
How it works: Combination of mental and wand use. Very outdoorsy.
Other Info: Has the power to create small earthquakes. Some of the most powerful sorcerers have created large-scale earthquakes that have devastated cities. Often friends with fauna.


Water:
Physical Center of Tension: Lower abdomen, navel
Source of body dynamics: Power
Personality traits: Emotional. Extraverted.
How it works: Combination of mental and wand use
Other Info: Water typically balances out the more impulsive tendencies of fire. Water and fire tend to make friends with one another easily. With training and practice, these sorcerers can learn to breathe underwater for hours at a time. Without practice, they can go a few minutes longer than the average person.



Fire:
Physical Center of Tension: Solar Plexus
Source of body dynamics: Energy
Personality traits: Impulsive. Extroverted.
How it works: Combination of mental and wand use
Other info: Fire sorcerers do not burn as easily as others do and with practice will have a higher heat tolerance.



Wind:
Physical Center of Tension: Center of chest, heart
Source of body dynamics: Resiliency
Personality traits: Flighty airheads. Whimsical. Not always very realistic.
How it works: Combination of mental and wand use
Other info: With practice, they can hover a few feet in the air; this also aids in tricks like jumping, flipping, etc.



Fauna:
Physical Center of Tension: Shoulders and back
Source of body dynamics: Love
Personality traits: Introverted. Prefers to be in the outdoors and prefers animals to people.
How it works: Completely mental power
Other Info: Often friends with earth sorcerers. They have a connection with animals. It’s not that they can make them do what they want or control them, just that they can communicate and more often than not the animal will be willing to assist a fauna sorcerer.

The Characters:

Code: Select all

[b]Name:[/b] First and Last
[b]Age:[/b] 21 and up, as she’s looking for people at least out of University
[b]Gift:[/b] Water, Earth, Fauna, Fire, or Wind
[b]Resume:[/b] Keep it brief and IC.
Right? So, how do you join this awesome RP? I thought you’d ask. Just copy that convenient little form there, paste it into the box below and fill out the details. Any questions, about the world in general or the RP, please contact myself and BrookeDi.
