Arcanix For eons, Earth has been without magic. It has been exterminated from the Earth by the newfound religions, persecuted - it's practitioners killed and creatures thought dangerous slaughtered. The humans go on with their lives, believing it all to have been a distant myth created from the figments of ignorant people's imaginations. Belief is misleading. The truth is, those creatures never left - people simply do not believe in them anymore. With their disbelief, they no longer 'see' the world as it really is anymore. They can no longer touch upon the power of Dreams - Magic. They allow the darkness in their heart to cloud their mind, and they are forever lost. ...However, there is something about the minds of children, of youth - before they are taught the way "the world works" by adults. They are open to the magical wonders of the world. Their parents do not believe them... but there is Belief. There is Magic. The Towers of Arcanix - cloaked to the world below, floating in an area where planes never travel, whether because of magic or convenience of location. It is the last true academy of magic in the world. There, people are trained to use the most precious resource of all.... Imagination. It is a special school, open to those that show the 'spark'... where the teachers and constant exposure to Magic and the Stuff of Dreams fosters Imagination, allowing the spark to become a roaring flame of imagination. That is not to say there aren't problems. Time still passes, and parents wonder where their children (sometimes teens) go. Some children must learn to balance other schooling with Arcanix schooling. There are cliques in Arcanix of varying degrees, as well as exposure to less admirable magical creatures. However, as the sign says in the opening hallway, where students imagine themselves into the building... Arcanix "Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere." -Albert Einstein Game Notes: This is a fun little freeform game about life balancing a magical school with the pressures of real Earth life. One can play a character of any age (older characters having attended the school when young and re-visit to continue "Collegate" schooling later in life). "Imaginary" creatures also available to play, as are half-breeds. Use any character sheet you are comfortable with.
