  1. Here's the Signups thread;

    I'm gonna give you two CS's, one really damn fancy. And one that has only relevant stuff, both work, but you can guess which is valued more highly.

    Some important information to keep in mind before you make a CS
    -We are all 15-18 years of age.
    -None of you will have real jobs before this, but you might have had something you wanted to do before your magical abilities showed up, this is what you put under occupation.
    -None of you know how to use magic.
    -Tbh if anyone's title is "Dark Mage" you'd probably not live long.

    Fancy (open)

    Relevant (open)

    While this CS has far less fields, I expect that much more text per each field.

    Appearance: (No real people, again)
    Magic: (3-4 emotions, at least one dark and Light)

    I am not really hard on rules, but here are the basic RP rules.

    1. No powergaming.
    2. Keep an eye on metagaming, most stuff in the opening is general knowledge, but stuff like Grey mages and True mages are generally unknown.
    3. No powergaming (X2)
    4. Use (un)common sense.
    5. At certain moments people could be allowed temporary lapses of immense power spikes with severe consequences, that is the nature of Light and Dark magic, however unless given permission, please refrain from doing so.
    6. No godmodding.
    7. I believe that no mary sues should be common sense by now.

    And these are the posting rules.

    1. I expect at least one post a week, come on people it ain't that hard.
    2. I expect a minimum of one paragraph, unless if extreme circumstances don't allow that much (Though let's be honest you can always write at least one.)
    3. I may or may not hijack characters for the sake of plot continuation in case you fail to post once a week.

That was until age 16 when his father got the rest of the family killed, as he had gambled them into a debt they couldn't pay. The price then became their lives. Arthur survived by not being home when the attackers came. It was from here Arthur took on his personage. One who fights injustice,no matter the cost required.​

    Her title comes from the title of her parents which are know as Wings of Eira. Her brother is known as Young Wing of Eira while her sister is know as the Stray Wing of Eira.

    A young girl from the village of Eira. Her older sister Neccesia told her stories about heroes and adventurers as well as though her writing and reading. But like the rest of family it was pretty obvious that her life would be made out of hunting. So after a fun-filled childhood when Alissa became seven she was made into a helper for her dad and mom, one of the best hunters of Eira village. Then when she was only 10 Alissa's sister Neccesia disappeared, running away from a her fate of becoming a hunter. This induced a mad rage of Alissa's mother which in the end lead to Alissa's mom wounding her spine by falling down the stairs which left her bedridden.

    After a few days of turbulent emotions Alissecia decided that unlike her sister she will not run, but fight against her fate. First she quickly learned all that she could about hunting and used the knowledge to appear bad at it on purpose. Then she started to learn about the world from history books and travellers while training herself in secret. But lacking a way to gather or create supplies for travel Alissa took to cooking but under the watchful eyes of her father, mother and brother got no opportunity to hide any food that she made or steal ingredients to make it in secret.

    Years passed with Alssecia slowly growing up. Thanks to her faking inability as a hunter she remained a Junior Apprentice Hunter for all this time and as she matures into a woman her father is more and more considering marrying her off, but still hopes that she will become a hunter. Little her father knows that Alissa is an excellent hunter that surpassed all other apprentices a long time ago and is already better then most of the younger hunters. But then she manifested her magic power and a new fate opened to her ...

  5. Except the grammar (Which I hope you'll look into), I can't really find anything wrong with your CS, therefore its accepted @gamer5 .
  6. I'm interested in this, is there any room?

  7. I suppose that's fine, we have one slot at the moment because one person quit in the Int check. Did you see the OOC thread?
  8. Thanks for the consideration. I realized a few minutes after I made the post that it was Invitation Only, sorry about that.
  9. Yeah, don't worry, luckily you posted and we needed one more person.
  10. I have attempted to adapt my CS, if there's anything else I need to change, please let me know.
  11. You missed changing the "Details" section.
    Unless that's intentionally unchanged.
  12. Woops, sorry! (Fixed)
  13. I suppose its fine, though you could expand on the History, specifically where is he from, a village or one of the two other cities.
    (Though its insinuated that he's from a city)

    History: Ardashir and his brother Tassad were born into a lower-class family in the Lowlands. Despite the fact that both he and his brother were identical twins, their preferences began to differ after some time. While his brother would always venture near the nearby barracks after school in hopes of getting a glimpse of soldiers training, Ardashir preferred to help his mother in the kitchen with preparing meals and preserving food for the winters, often spending more time in the kitchen than on his schoolwork. Around age 14, Tassad was able to acquire an internship with the local military outpost, and Ardashir entered into an apprenticeship with a restaurant close to the New City. A year later, with his failing grades and attendance in school, Ardashir dropped out to pursue his apprenticeship full time, with his paychecks paying for a modest apartment, moving out of his parents' house. He had only a little more than a year left before he was in line for a full-fledged job as a chef, when his magic began to manifest itself.
  15. Everything seems to be in order, we have our first character who could only ever look at the City of Light, but never step into it.

    Cousins :
    2nd cousins on Mama's side: Luz y Liz. 2nd cousins on Papa's side: Noel, Victor, Jacqueline, Magda et Aurora.



    Elation, Appreciation, Aggression, Rage pure and simple.



    Born into the wasteland annex of the West Defensive Line, Charlisse grew up there as a single child. Her parents could only afford to raise only one since they were only Defensive Maintenance Workers. But their lone daughter showed talent beyond her status and financial income. The girl had rhythm and motion in all she did. A born dancer.

    At the age of 6 Charlisse was entered into the Mardukian Dancers Academy in the better part of town. She blossomed and excelled there, becoming a top dancer and lead each year. At 13, she was branded on the back of her wrist with the logo of the Mardukian Academy. Charlisse now found herself in the dorm there. And her family now moved closer to the main entry to Fina, somehow able to now afford a place there. But rarely was Charlisse allowed to see Mama and Papa.

    At 17 everything changed and denial ceased.

    He held a knife. The teacher she knew most her life had finished raping her yet again and threatened her life and her family's life. Her teacher let it slip that this was how she earned her keep like how both Mama and Papa had given their bodies and their only daughter for a better life. This teacher she had known most her life said he owned them.

    Owned them.

    That was it. That single world broke all durances of denial ever formed in her mind. Before her now was the real gravity of her reality right then and there. That was it. Her family was but play toys to a giant spoiled toddler. He owned them.

    When Charlisse woke up next, she bled from nape and navel. But the rest of the flesh and blood scattered and sprayed all about was not her own.


    And so she fled with 7 other of her closest performer friends.

    But soon enough, through peril and confusion, they lose one of their mates. As they move west, they find a travelling carnivale passing through a village.

    On a whim they offer to audition for the carnivale. They are accepted and it just so happens that the carnivale was making its way west to Ententa. And so now the dancers joined up and are now living the dream. .. As clowns.

    True, not the glamourous lives thery had always envisioned for themselves, but it was the best way to hide their identities whilst still being able to perform.

    And so as they moved further west, their talents could no longer be denied. They were given one shot. And they blew everyone away with their trained theatrical prowess of storytelling through music, dance and acting. And though it started off small, they soon became a hit.

    But like a snowflake rolling into a downhill bound snowball, they became a big side production of the carnivale, gathering a near full orchestra and talrented pool of pereforners for their theatre/dance troup. And as they travel along the coast, Charlisse is now practicing her newfound talent. She now practices her magic.

    And so now after hiding out for almost a year and a half now, and only making contact with her folks only twice, the Seeker Caravan has found her in Ententa. And with heavy heart she leaves her new family in the carnivale. But with full heart she faces her future.

    And with steeled heart she will return to Fina to finally face her past.
