The 1st Magic Insurrection



Back before the advent of the sciences, humanity had the ability to cast magic. Magic users were the more dominant force of humanity. During these periods their power was nothing short of incredible and you could tell these people apart from the standard human by their black, tattoo like birthmarks. The magical powers these people possessed had a varying range; from telekinesis to elemental abilities. At the height of their power the Magic users accounted for almost 70% of the human population.

However, The magic users were split in their philosophy. Some of them believed that it was the magic users job to protect the earth and its inhabitants. Others thought that it was their place to control the rest of the world. This differing view of beliefs eventually culminated in a magic war between the two warring factions; The Guild, who wanted to protect the Earth, and Corpus, the group that wanted to dominate humanity. This war was highly destructive and very quickly many lives were lost. At one point it was even thought that the Earth might be destroyed. The remaining non-magic users of Earth, in the fallout of this war, decided to put aside their petty squabbles of country and tribe, and try to deal with this 'magic' problem.

What happened next was nothing short of genocide. Quickly, large groups of Magic users were being murdered, and their numbers quickly diminished. As their numbers dropped so did the chance that any new born children who were born became magic users too. After hundreds of years of persecution, the remaining population of magic users had dwindled to less that 5%, and today in 2017 has fallen to 0.1% with only an estimated 20,000 magic users left.

However, old habits never die, and once again the cauldron is starting to bubble. A group of angry and disenfranchised magic users have started their own terrorist cell called 'Dark Shadow': The Corpus re-imagined for the modern world. Their goal is to take over the world, and show the rest of humanity why magic users are the dominant species.

On the flipside, the Guild still carries on, trying to regulate the hiding magic users. Creating rules and laws which it enforces, trying to keep the peace between the magic and non magic forces by creating its own authority. While everyone in the magic world might not agree with them, everyone has no choice but to accept. This mainly comes from the fact that the Guild has been run as a hereditary dynasty. The powers of the dynasty have been passed down through each child and this has culminated in creating arguably the most power magic user in the world. Her powers are legendary and she has used these powers, along with other methods to keep everyone in check.

--------------
So this RP is not a black and white, Good Vs Evil RP. The Guild id the force for good, but they are not angels themselves. The leader of the Guild can be a bitch. But it is pretty much a RP where two sides will be competing against one another and trying to get the upper hand. Your characters will get hurt and may even die. You have been warned.

I will be taking on the role of the leader of the Dark Shadow which means i need someone to play the leader of the Guild. Given the importance of this role i am looking for someone who is experienced and i am sorry if i judge your character sheet more harshly than others if you apply for the role. It is just important i get her right. The person who gets this is pretty much a Co-GM by default.

Character sheet and Relationship sheet is below. The relationship sheet is only applicable to characters you know before the RP started. It mostly will contain the people from your own team, unless you have had prior run ins with people from the other team. You will need to message the other accepted players to see what kind of relationship they would like with your character.

I am new to the whole GMing thing and am terrible at creating character sheets etc. PLEASE feel free to add bits, styling and other bits that you like. Any information you want to add is fine. I am not going to get pissy if you adapt the template. I want you to be creative and feel the character you are making :) I am sure some of you have fancy fonts as well xD

Also, i just want to take the chance to say, thank you for reading my text and getting this far. I am quite nervous about doing this and i am sure that i have missed things out, so please if you have any suggestions etc, please let me know. I am really excited to get my First RP here off the ground.

Gender: Female
Age: 27
Alignment: Guild
Rank within Organization: Leader

Birthmark Shape:

Location of Birthmark: Left bicep, normally covered with clothing.
Magical Abilities: Rose is able to control the elements but has a particular affinity for water. She has become quite adept at making herself invisible, giving many members of the Guild (and others) the impression that she may always be watching or listening. While it is not confirmed to be an ability the illustrious has it is widely believed that she has the ability to read minds, a rumor she has not confirmed or denied.

Place of Birth: Byron Bay, Australia
Currently Residing: New York City, NY
Personality: Rose is very forgiving by nature but does have a bit of a temper if pushed too far. As the leader of the Guild she is very gregarious and charming. It takes people a while to notice that she doesn’t talk about herself, when asked personal questions the conversation is artfully turned back to something else, usually without the other person noticing.
History/Bio:

While born in Australia Rose moved to the United States when she was 12, after her parents died. She moved in with her Aunt who was only 21 at the time, the two have been inseparably close. When Rose turned 18 her Aunt told her the truth about herself and her parents. Her parents had not died in a car accident as she’d been led to believe. No, they were murdered by other magic users who followed the ideology of the Corpus. Rose’s strange attraction to the water and the strange occurrences that happened around her, her Aunt explained was because of her magic. The two had a falling out over the lie, after having been so close for all those years.

Rose moved from the southern part of the United States to New York, hoping to find someone who could teach her about her magic. She joined the Guild and was given her rightful place as Leader, learning that her Aunt had taken over this position when Rose was younger. She is a well-respected leader - often thought of as kind and genuine. She strongly believes in the laws that have been passed to help keep her kind hidden. She believes it is the Guild’s duty to protect the weak, non-magic and magic users alike. She doesn’t want magic users to control the world but she has no problem with the Guild ruling over magic users.

By day, Rose is a high-powered executive of a technology company but she spends a great deal of her time focused on the Guild. It is not unusual for her to take special interest in new recruits, especially those she feels may be teetering on the edge between loyalty to the Guild or the Dark Shadow.

Relationships
Name: Olivia Turner
Relationship: Co-Worker (Rose is her boss)
Characters opinion of them: Rose has seemed to have taken a special interest in Olivia’s career and from time to time her personal life. Rose likes Olivia but is trying to gently dissuade the girl from exposing her kind, without revealing that she herself is a magic user, let alone the most powerful one known to be.

Name: Aloysius Leighton
Relationship: Unknown
Characters opinion of them: Rose understands the feelings that bred the Dark Shadow to be formed but does not agree with it. It is not their methods necessarily that she disagrees with as she has been known to use a strong hand in the Guild but rather their end goal. She has never publicly denounced Aloysius personally, but she has denounced the Dark Shadow, likening them to rebelling teenagers. She is waiting and watching, to see if she can change Aloysius’ mind. If not, she will end his rebellion when it goes too far.

@jakeb1993 Not snobbish at all and since not too much work has gone into him I can easily switch to making a female character.

David "Fog" Gorgon


Name: David Gorgon
Age: 23
Alignment: Guild
Rank: Recruit (fresh blood)
Birthmark Shape:
Location of birthmark: center of forehead (covered by hair)

Magical Abilities: Create a mist, illusions within the mist,turn body into a misty form, as well as teleport within the mist.

Place of Birth: Slocum, Texas

Current Location: Traveling to New York City from Dallas, Tx

Bio: He has had a ruff life, being abandoned by his parents at the doorstep of an orphanage. While growing up he loved the fog, and said to the other kids that the fog would talk to him. He would have long casual conversations which turned into suggestions of fellowship between him and the mist. After He agreed to follow the mist, and never betray it, the mist taught him things, things that no one else was able to do.

The mist taught him how to make his dreams, and the entities within the dreams, spring to life. He enjoyed making different things in the mist, from puppies to his own parents, so he figured that if he could enjoy himself in the mist he could make the other kids happy. So one day when it was foggy he brought all kids out and asked them what they wanted to see, and a few moments later they saw the thing they wanted in the mist appear before them. He thought they would be happy, but instead were terrified. They knew that he made those things appear, so they hated him.

The following years leading up to his permanent departure from that wicked place, were horrible. Day in and Day out, they spat on him, made fun of him, and even physically tortured him to the point where he would have to run and hide each day, away from the kids and into the mist. The mist comforted him and helped him through his time of need, and in return the boy pledged that once he grew up, he would leave this place and never return. Once the boy pledged the mist taught him something new, how to make the mist appear whenever he wanted it, and how to teleport from place to place within the mist.

With these newfound abilities he began to practice and practice, until he had perfected the techniques, and by the time he was finished he had grown up to the age of 18, finally free from his nightmare. He went off without leaving a trace that he was ever there, except for the memories left inside the other children's minds. for the next 4 years he continued to hone his skills.

Then, one day he heard the mist speak to him about a guild, filled with people just like him, so he is on his way to what he thinks might be his true home.

Relationships:He isn't tied to anyone but the mist,and because of his past, it would take a while for him to trust anyone else.

Personality: Takes pride in whatever he does. He seems shallow and untrustworthy at times, but he has a heart of gold (if you manage to pierce the stone coating.). He seeks new friends who won't betray him, people who he can relate to, people he can trust. Not only will he be loyal to almost anyone he trusts, but he will also be willing to fight anyone who tries to fight them.

(P.S. this will be my first rp ever other than D&D, hopefully you will let me join you, thank you.)

@David Gorgon You'll have to wait to hear from @jakeb1993 as he is the GM and I have not yet been accepted as co-GM but @jakeb1993 I'm totally up for it (and I have prior experience GMing RPs.)

@David GorgonI would say though that you might need to change your alignment, while it works for D&D I believe the purpose was to see if you wanted to be a member of the Guild or of Dark Shadow. And you forgot to add your rank in organization, which for you I would imagine would be Recruit.

ok so I will probably go for guild, and seeing as how my character just found out about it he would most likely be a new recruit.

@David Gorgon Yes, based on your character's profile I would say New Recruit. Also, there was something wrong with the photo you attempted to use. Or it's my computer, it's showing as a blank square for me. Does it show up on your end?

@David Gorgon I'll see if I can figure out a workaround, that should have worked. In the meantime you can embed the link with the following tag:
