A Magical Girl Adventure

GM:@KoL Co-GM:@TheWendil

A long time ago, in a world other than our own, there lived a Princess who could breathe life in any stories she ever told. From her lips, world were created, filled with magic, adventure, dragons, and heroes. From the zenith of her crystal spire, she guided her kingdom with grace. Peace and justice lasted for millennia.

All of that changed one day when a Dark Witch tried to usurp the Princess' power. She created a way to seal the Princess' stories in books, binding them to her will. With the power of those books that came to be known as Grimoires, the Witch was able to unleash her rebellion. After sealing the Princess away in her tower, the witch, now turned into a Dark Empress, set out to conquer the many worlds touched by the Princess' tales.

One of these worlds was none other than our very own Earth.

Unknown to the Dark Empress, her armies wouldn't have an easy time conquering this world. A great deal of the Princess' storytelling power blessed these lands, all that was needed to keep it safe were guardians of peace and justice with the power to wield the very same Grimoires that brought forth the Witch's victory many eons ago.


"And who would be better to guide those few chosen ones other than the Princess' most trusted attendant? No one, I tell you! And that's why I, the Magnificent Scheherazade will do that. Fear not, you may not be fit for the job, but I'll ensure you succeed one way or another."

With the enemies encroaching upon the otherwise peaceful Mizukino City, it's only a matter of time until the battle for the world's survival begins.

Character Sheet

Name: Self Explanatory.
Age: Try to keep this between 12 and 17, unless there's a really good explanation involved.
Appearance: No real life images, thank you. Either an image, text description, or both are allowed. Bonus points if you can provide an appearance for your character's magical girl form.
Description: A brief description of your character. This can include bits of personality, backstory, likes and dislikes, etc. Try to keep this as brief but also as flavorful as possible. Think of it like the character description you would read on the back of a DVD/Blu-ray's box for example.
Grimoire: Every magical girl begins her story with one unique grimoire, a mystical story book that somehow found its way into her possession.
Title: While the stories contained in the Grimoires aren't exact 1:1 copies of fairytales and other stories of our world, they are similar enough that you can use them as the basis for the naming and powers granted by the books.
Description: A brief description of the contents of the Grimoire, this is used to Explain its abilities, as well as to add a little more flavor to the choice.
Abilities: What kind of powers, weapons, gear, etc does the Grimoire grant to your character?
Misc: Trivia, theme songs, or anything else not covered above should go here.




Bonne Lecture!

Alright, let me get to work on my character. I hope Yuri fits in well here.

@KoL I started a character and need some direction. Can you help me out, please? I can't figure out the name of the Grimoire, and I want you to check to see if Yuri's Grimoire abilities are okay.

Sure, I'll look him over later, but please take him out of the CS tab and post the character here on the OOC until he's approved. Just to keep things organized as usual.

Anyway, in regards to naming the stories, that requires a little creative flexibility since there are no proper guidelines for that.

For example, you pick a story that exists (or an element within one) and twist its title a bit. It doesn't even need to make too much sense as long as it's at least grounded in a bit of the theme you want to go with, like what I did with Arc d'Lupin.

Name: Momo Hanabira
Age: 17
Appearance:

Description: An average student and animal lover. Momo is energetic and outgoing. She prefers hanging out with friends over being alone and can have trouble understanding when people need some time alone.
Grimoire: Every magical girl begins her story with one unique grimoire, a mystical story book that somehow found its way into her possession.
Title: The soldier's tinderbox
Description: The story of a soldier that gets a tinderbox that allows him to summon up to three giant loyal dogs.
Abilities: Like the soldier from the story she can summon up to three giant dogs of different sizes. She can only summon one at a time and it goes in order from smallest and weakest to biggest and strongest. The order resets each time she transforms.

  • Akamaru the first and smallest of the three dogs. The weakest of the three but the easiest to control.
  • Kiba The second and second biggest dog
  • Ceberus The last and biggest dog. The most powerful of the three but also the hardest to control.

Misc: Trivia, theme songs, or anything else not covered above should go here.

Name: 小刀禰 夕朱 (Kotone Yuzu)
Age: 15
Appearance: Normal (Source), Transformed (Source unknown)
Description: When there's evil afoot, her confident showmanship steals the show! When there's not, our heroine is modest and kind to everyone she meets! This quiet beauty has admirers from all over, yet none can get close enough to unravel the mysteries of her heart...
Grimoire:
Title: Noble Robin
Description: The story of an archer highwayman who's chance meeting with a princess causes him to forgo his old ways. In pursuit of her love, he enters into an archery contest to show off his skills. The princess is swooned, but the two can never be together. In order for them to live happily ever after, Robin steals the treasures of her evil family together with his old friends. He scatters the new-found wealth to the peasantry before he and the princess elope into the woods.
Abilities: Robin was a master archer, able to hit his mark no matter how far or narrow the target. Yuzu gets a bow and deadeye skills to match, conjuring magical arrows to fire off at the enemy. Robin was quick on his feet and now so is Yuzu, able to fire off volleys of arrows during any daring stunt without losing the slightest bit of accuracy.

I know it's a very short sheet, but mimicking the example given by the GM, I tried to pack in as much as I could into as tiny of a space while still giving that 'flavor text' feel to it. If it needs more, though, I'm happy to try again.

I also thought about adding snares as an option to her archery (Like being able to have a chain following her arrow's trail, possibly creating a net when firing off enough of them ) but I didn't know how to word it. As it stands it's just magical arrows with pin-point accuracy even when performing acrobatic stunts. Idk if there needs to be more there, so I've left it out for now.

Oh and the fairy tale it's inspired off is Robin Hood, but I took some creative liberties with the whole "Similar beats but not the same story" thing. If I went too far off-track, I'll course correct it.

Both look fine for me. Nevertheless, wait for @TheWendil's opinions before. The idea for the CSs being short but descriptive iis mostly because we'd rather see what you do thee characters IC than static information on a CS that, frankly speaking, we know is unlikely to matter much after a short while.

As a side note, just so that everyone knows. The characters don't need to go all to the same school or anything like this, if you don't want to.

When the time for action comes, you'll be called by Scheherazade to go where it matters. Also, their usual hangout spot, or at least Scheherazade's home is an old bookstore. They can meet over there when needed.

I mean, I don't disagree. I forgo CSes almost entirely if I know the people I'm RPing with, or have had long enough of a talk with them. I know I'm guilty of steering off-course from my CS within 3 posts at most.

Not entirely sure how it works out when you don't know the people you're RPing with, but I ain't one to scoff at the chance to not have to care about my CS.

Name: Yuri Angyl Harrow
Age: 16
Appearance:


Description: A charismatic young boy who just so happens to be the first and only male student allowed at a prestigious all-girls school as some sort of initiative headed by the Headmaster of the Academy. Not much is known about this student other than his loyalty is unwavering and his bright spirit is immensely contagious.
Grimoire:
Title: The Butterfly Ninja [Mulan/The Princess and the Frog]
Description: A beautiful Wuxia tale of a heroic prince who harnessed the power of his ancestors, in the form of arcane magic, to defeat an evil overlord who threatened to bring an end to peace among the kingdoms.
Abilities: Much like the prince from the story, Yuri's magic/voodoo takes the form of beautiful spectral butterflies. He can sprout beautiful iridescent wings that allow him to fly. He can transform into a swarm of colorful butterflies if harmed suddenly to escape, or as means to travel quickly. He can even open portals to "summon" creatures to do his bidding or travel great distances. The spectral butterflies can do great and marvelous things. They can be used to either shield, enhance, or destroy. The extent of this magic solely depends on the willpower of the caster. A list of current butterfly colors and their effects is listed below.

Blue Butterflies - Protection and Absorption. They can be used as shields against negative energy and oncoming attacks. The more powerful the negative energy and attack, the more taxing on Yuri’s body. If not careful it can weaken him severely.

Black Butterflies - Voodoo Enchantments. The only sinister part of his arsenal and most powerful. The full extent of these butterflies is unknown and they resemble skeletal butterflies with black smoke trails. Yuri's aura darkens when he channels this power. Prolonged usage can potentially have negative consequences.

Purple Butterflies - Offensive Spells and Counters. Either used in a swarm-like beam to cause damage, or used in larger forms to decimate. Yuri can attach a purple butterfly to an ally and enhance their abilities. He cannot enhance his own abilities.

Butterfly Staff - A special polearm weapon that allows Yuri to channel his arcana and utilize his martial skills.

Not for the time being at least. It's better for everyone to keep the roster to a manageable size.

There was mention of a potential discord server in the int. check. I didn't comment on it at the time, but I'm in favor of making one. I find they're useful for socializing with fellow RPers. S'pose it would be more about what everyone else thinks, though.

I don't mind. DISCORD has become a great tool when discussing plot and such.

@Duthguy, @Ammokkx

Both are fine and accepted by me. You can place them in the Character Tab.

@DesperatePerson

She's also good to go on my front, though wait for @KoL's opinions on her.

@WindsOfFate

Looking at him, it seems he has a few too many butterflies at his disposal. I'd recommend maybe removing the Gold Butterflies since we already have a healer through Ayaka. With the remaining 3 butterflies, he should be good to go on my end.

Will do. I was aiming to make him like a support character, but I will definitely remove the Gold Butterflies.

EDIT: I removed the Gold Butterflies and await review. Also, I do have a question. I know it was said that they don't all have to go to the same school, but I imagine they would know each other to some degree right? Yuri is open to friendships if ANY of the girls want to befriend him. He's loyal and will beat up their disrespectful boyfriends if need be.
