Legends...Lies...Heros...Villans...Sages...Witches...
I've seen it all, on the little blue ball.
I'm one of the creative and vengeful last,
they said death gods would survive the blast,
they thought I was gone,
but that was only a con.

I'm bitter and mad,
but not one bit bad,
I'm mystery,
I'm lies,
I'm the impossible.

What am I?

Why, I the last god,

Dirka, the goddess of magic!




This Rp is an Rp based around people in modern time becoming the new vassals of a god. You will play as these vassals and go through the world protecting it from old evils, which have been left over from the dead god's wars. As you do, you will deal with the stresses of leading a double life, one public, and one best left in a cave. Lore will be updated regularly, as I will reveal the past slowly and as you discover more of what awaits your characters.

I have five slots for people, each getting a special magical school. These do not limit your character to spells specifically associated with that school, but you can't use the other player's schools. The schools are as follows:

Player Specific schools
  • Necromancy(Raising the dead and calling lost souls for you to control)[NO ARMIES AND UNDEAD GIRLFRIENDS GOD DAMNIT]
  • Enchantment(placing wards, spells, and powers into items)
  • Alteration(Directly changing the major forces of the place, such as time and space)[note: This is not as Op as you think this is]
  • Dreamwalking(Using the astral plane to deal with issues)[note: What you do there effects the real world]
  • Alchemy(Mixing magical ingredients for spells, solvents, potions, etc.)[note: This is a lot stronger than you think it is.]


These schools will be the most powerful in each character's arsenal. But the characters are not limited to just these schools as said before.



You can only start with one other magic domain at the start, with basic spells only. Say fireballs, lightning bolt, freezing grasp for destruction; summon essence, summon wisp, and summon Itchol(crystal guardian) for conjuration and invisibility for illusion.




We'll be set in the UK for now, starting in the small town of Larkhill(Real place) near the famous stonehenge. For our purposes, stonehenge is the portal to the Rift, which your characters will be friends visiting the site and other places in Europe. You will be as a group for most of the RP, and after the main five, I am unlikely to allow others in to the Rp unless I see a chance at plot changes. Now here is the rules for the RP. Please follow these, for there aren't many and otherwise you can do whatever.






Here is the character sheet. Apply in the OOC or a PM, and there is no reveal as goes crap. The characters know each other already.



Check in with this post regularly for Lore reveals(if you even care).

Lore of the villain made me laugh, so I guess sign me up? Can I make a reservation for the dreamwalking Vassal?

Name: Tabitha Oneiroi
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Appearance:

Personality: Tabitha has always been, in many ways, irresponsible. While she is loyal and trustworthy enough to friends and family, they all recognize that what Tabitha wants,Tabitha will do, and with little to no consideration to the consequences. Add to that her innability to make up her mind, and Tabitha has cultivated a reputation for impulsivity. Despite this oft-repeated criticism of her character, Tabitha remains incorrigible in her behavior.

Ms. Oneiroi has also cultivated a reputation as an exceptionally lazy person, albeit a competent one. When a choice presents itself, she will always take the path of least resistance. I almost everything she does, she gives the minimal effort. That lazy attitude has carried oger into her demeanour, speaking, and moving in a slow, almost lethargic manner. One of the few things she actually does put any effort into is her swimming, while in the water Tabitha is alert, animated, or in the words of her mother "finally awake".

As anyone who knows Tarot, used to be a practicing Wiccan, and claims to be a Lucid Dreamer, Tabitha has quite the reputation for being a bit of an oddball. Not that she has done anything to dispel this opinion of her, happily offering readings to anyone who asks, sharing stories about her years and experiences with her Wicca group. Regarding her Lucid Dreaming, she has always been a bit more tight-lipped, happy to explain or offer advice to any curious individuals who may be interested in experimenting with it herself, but rarely sharing her experiences, even when pressed.

History:
Tabitha’s upbringing was mostly ordinary, with a happy childhood, loving family and warm home, if a bit quiet at times. When she was eleven, her upbringing took a short detour for the worst when her parents briefly separated. During this unfortunate time in their lives, Tabitha found herself being used as a pawn in her parents games, each of them attempting to play her against the other to their own benefit. While not old enough to fully understand what was going on around her, Tabitha nonetheless felt used and slowly began to retreat within herself. Slowly, her parents began to realize the trauma they were inflicting on their own daughter. Miraculously, this realization somehow managed to save their marriage, and they managed to pull together shortly before their daughter entered high-school. Tabitha often wondered in her teenage years if after graduating they would begin to separate again. Whether or not this was their intentions at first, after graduating and heading off to college her parents relationship was stronger than ever before.

While in high school, Tabitha was an unremarkable student. As an athlete she was much more notable athlete, she and her swim team won one competition after another. She may have went on to have a long and successful career in the sport, if it had not been for a tragic accident. Heading home from a party one night in a car with some of her friends, all of which had been drinking, Tabitha nearly drowned after they careened off of a bridge - after passing out underwater, she woke up on the shore receiving CPR from her best friend. After narrowly surviving and losing two of her teammates in the accident, Tabitha chose to retire from the sport, to the dismay of her coach. She went on to finish her high school years uneventfully, taking up smoking in her final year, to the great dismay of her former coach, and parents.

In college, Tabitha studied philosophy, and began to experiment in “alternative spirituality” as she describes it to anyone who asks her now. She ended up joining a Wicca group, and remained with them until earning her degree. This is also when she took up Tarot as well as lucid dreaming.

After leaving college to enter the workforce, Tabitha discovered the stereotype of useless degree’s to be more than accurate - to her great disappointment. After working a seemingly endless stream of dead end jobs, she found a job working as a telemarketer. The job was not the most glamourous, or rewarding, but it did pay moderately well, and it was easy, which was enough to convince her to settle for the moment.

Since beginning her telemarketing job, Tabitha’s life has become decidedly uneventful, almost boring. Her working hours blend together and she is more asleep than awake most of the time. At her apartment, she wastes away her time playing a MMO by the name of ‘Manabot’. In fact the few times she feels truly alive, or awake is when she is spendig times with her friends, so when one of them suggested a trip to Europe, Tabitha leapt to agree, happy for a break from the monotony. Even more encouraging, when she decided to do a Tarot reading for herself, the reversed devil chose to make an appearance. For Tabitha the omen was clear and her bags were packed, and the ticket bought the very next day.

Likes: diving, smoking, tea.
Dislikes: Small spaces (Claustrophobic), smoking, public transport, her job.
Vassal Magic: Dreamwalking
School Magic: Conjuration
Skills: Tarot, competitive swimming (former), Free Diving, art - primarily pencil drawing and watercolor painting, Lucid Dreaming
Occupation: Telemarketer
Other: Carries a small handgun with her, owns a Tarot deck of her own design.

@Ruler Inc

I've had issues with people bringing up taboo subjects on other RP sites and one RP on this site. Figured a Warning prehand would at least deter people I don't want. AND this is the first time that I prepared for an issue such related with that topic. Before-hand I simply said no major topics and keep it PG-13 PLus I was tired when I wrote most of it.

Honestly there's a Post-Apocalyptic High School RP in Free right now that specifically says cannibalism is allowed in the RP rules, so, I'm thrilled to see rules against being nasty.
Anyway I'm going to start a CS. @Dealdric Could you give me an idea of how alteration magic works? From reading it seems that illusion magic in this RP is perhaps more akin to/reliant on telepathy, because it's used to influence the mind rather than to affect the outside world in any way. In Elder Scrolls (the only series I care about as far as magical lore goes), alteration and illusion are something of a duality; illusion is not bound to the laws of nature but alteration is, illusion magic only affects the caster and/or their enemy but alteration magic is tangible and thus affects everything.
Am I overthinking this? probably

@Kinjaav

Alteration allows temporary control over the forces of major nature, such as distance, gravity, time, and what-not. However, this is quite draining and only for a small amount of time, so using it regularly can make one quite ill. Plus, you can't actually control matter except with how gravity behaves around it.

Illusion however only affects your enemies minds. What they see and perceive. You won't know what they are thinking, or able to actually control them, but you can trick them instead.

So you are half right in that Illusion affect their minds only, but you can't exactly touch Alterations effects either. I'm not adding things like the ability to bend light or make earth move until later when the characters are more advanced.

And there is a damn magic cannibalism RP? Humanity disturbs me more and more...
