A MAGICAL GIRL ADVENTURE
Long ago upon the Age of Tales, magic still reigned over the world. In its very real and very physical grasp, miracles were performed and spiraling feats that spun forth stories were commonplace from all the land over. It was within these very stories in which true magic was held and stored, passed down along the centuries and holding within them a special power of their own. This was the advent of Magical Girls, those gifted with the power to unlock the magic in the stories hidden in plain sight all around them.

Fairly maidens chosen by forces beyond to bring about hope and justice among the world, Magical Girls have been among the shadows long throughout history, waging an endless war against those who seek chaos. Their enemies have remained even now as the Pageless, creatures from a different beyond who seek to consume all the stories of the world. Cloaked in darkness and negativity, it is only by the power of stories and the Magical Girls who wield them to keep back darkness at its bay.

As history progressed, so too have the methods of the Magical Girls. Friendship and loyalty have remained staple keys of their power, fueling the Grimoires that hold their story magic together. It wasn’t long before all the world over united in their war against the Pageless; and thus, the Grand Ministry was born. Located at the heart of modern innovation and historical narrative, the Grand Ministry continues to watch over the world in plain view within the heart of England. It has been this way for some time and shall continue to be this way for all of time to pass….

And yet, there is whisper of a great catastrophe coming to the world. The end of all stories beckons its reach as the Pageless grow stronger, wilder, and more erratic. Something is coming, something beyond the Grand Ministry’s sight. Perhaps then, the world’s stories truly aren’t enough to vanquish its erasure after all. Only time can tell.


SETTING
Welcome to Marrywell Academy. Located deep in the bode of England's most prestigious city of London, Marrywell Academy boasts itself as the most astute all-female education center in the world. It is here where only the best of the best and the brightest of minds are gathered to shape the future. While naysayers may look upon the castle-like grand walls and think only of normal boarding schools, Marrywell Academy's feats and reputation put all doubts to ease. Indeed, it is here where a girl's future is made into reality with a strong and positive career meant to launch them forward. At least, that's what the public believes.

In truth, the walls of Marrywell Academy serve as a fortress and base of operations for all the Magical Girls of the world. Hidden in plain sight, the school doubles as the heart of the Grand Ministry, the global organization of Magical Girls who watch and protect the world from the very shadows they face. It is here where your journey begins; or perhaps it's already started quite a while ago, having been a seasoned Magical Girl yourself. The choice is yours, your magic and Grimoire yours to decide what to do with. Regardless of your first impressions, one thing is constant.

The Pageless are growing restless. For the first time in years, the Pageless grow bold in their mark and more daring in their pursuit both for humans and the very stories that give a Magical Girl her power; the Grimoires. To what end is their hunt and their goals? That darkest mystery is for you to decide. Make friends, study hard, gather together, and combat back the darkness into the recesses where all stories come from. And, above all else in your endeavors, trust in the Grand Ministry.


TERMINOLOGY
Throughout the RP, many terms and wording have become common place among the daily lives of Magical Girls. To truly excel in one's studies and ventures, it is best to familiarize with the locale and language.

@TheWendil Up for review! I may have taken too many liberties with the lore, but I can say that I'm pretty pleased with how the CS turns out.

Regardless, tell me if there's anything I should edit!

@Izurich

I see we have our first senpai archetype to lead the others. Reading it over, she's approved from me and @KoL. You can place her in the Character Tab.

I’ve been thinking of changing the “Celestial Host” in my CS to something else, another term that fits more thematically yet has the same meaning, but I’m on the fence about it.

However, after reading Roma’s CS, it gave me enough push to decide on changing mine because she also has a “Celestial Host” and changing mine will avoid potential confusion. Win-win!

Therefore, I’ll be switching the word “Celestial” in Lumière’s CS into “Malakhim” which means Messenger/Angel in Hebrew.

Sure that works. In hindsight there would be similar terminology between legends and what not so that’s fine by me.

Yeah~ but in this particular case, I was already thinking of switching the term since "Celestial" is thematically more fitting for East Asian legends; Jade Emperor, Celestial Army, Moon Rabbits, all that jazz. I just needed a little push and Roma gave me that push.

With the size we have and the people I know working on their CSes in the background, I'm allowing people to have 2 characters if they want for now.

Generally speaking yes, so long as it's nothing too crazy. I trust everyone has restraint for that. However, they must be the original versions of the tale; as an example, you can use the original Beauty and the Beast fable but not its Disney interpretation, for the most part unless it's an Alter. These are few and far between so I suppose I should ask, was there anything in specific you had in mind?

At the moment not really. Maybe the Count of Monte Cristo because its my favorite book but I was also thinking the Odyssey but trying to work out how either of those would work for a grimoir. Still thinking on the specifics

Oooooh! I’m really liking what I’ve read~ I can see fun stories made between our PCs.

I hope you get accepted!

I’m also helping a friend work on their CS, so add one more to the list of WIPs.

As for 2 main characters, my personal procedure on that is to ICly progress with my 1st main first then see if I feel like a 2nd main is necessary. I’m already comfortable controlling NPCs (Whether regular or throwaway) by default anyway.

Here I go! Backstory is still in the works, but it should be nothing too out of the ordinary.

@The 42nd Gecko
Your character seems pretty fine for me. It's funny that I'm actually one of those that read a (translated and abridged) version of the Song of Roland, so at least I know she's pretty fine.

@Villamvihar
While I like the idea of your character being essentially a bard, I think her power set is a little too all over the place. I don't know what to suggest for sure, so I'll wait for @TheWendil's input, but I think she can benefit of a little more focus.

@The 42nd Gecko

Like KoL said, she's good to go barring the small parts you're missing. She's fine by me, especially in noting those story beats to use for her future development. Once you add her theme, you can place her in the Character Tab.

@Villamvihar

I enjoy the alternative retelling of the Legend so that's fine. However, I do agree with KoL that it seems like her magic is a bit too sporadic in following the Dutchman theme. One work around this is maybe giving her 2-3 core powers of her Grimoire for now and slowly gain the other abilities as she grows/the RP goes on, especially if she's only been a Magical Girl for a year.
