Moonshire Private College, near Black Lake is a prestigious school with a long history. It has been the alumni to some of the brightest minds and inspiring leaders not only in the country, but around the world, yet is small enough to attract those with bigger ambitions then pocket books.
Moonshire started as a large manorhouse out in the wilderness. It seemed though from the moment that it's owners stepped into their half finished home strange things began to happen. The owners though were from a long line of wizards and at first figured that the problems were due to family enemies.
It was not. By pure accident it was built upon the spot where several ley lines intersected. It was a nod of power and with the construction of the manor it was noticed by all types of people and creatures.
Many epic battles and a few generations later the manor is donated to become a new school. More buildings are added on to the land to support the college and everyone could laugh off the old ghost stories about the properties past.
Except not everyone laughs.
Through the door, that looks to go into a maintenance closet is the club home room for the Dream Gate Guardians. It's a club that a select few girls every year join. It's not a slumber party club though. It's a defense club. A magical defense team, working to keep any baddie that wants to attack the school to get to the power source away.
How it all works
Girl finds the club by 'accident'. She then is told to select a fetish, though that word might not be used at the time. The fetish are carvings on pieces of wood in similar size and shape to a book mark. The carving is a guardian animal either real or mythical and there will usually be fringe on the end of the fetish, making it look even more like a book mark, with colors corresponding to the guardian animal, their totem.
They first meet their totem in a dream and learn about the totem and why guardians are needed. Never has a girl refused the call.
How they fight. While magic can manifest itself in the here and now, the best way to fight those that are trying to get to the energy source is go to into the Dream Time. This is where magic is wilder, where your senses are stronger, and where many things are more alive.
Battles will be fought mostly in the Dream Time. Injuries inflicted during battle in the Dream TIme will be less sever in the here and now, but you can die in the Dream Time and it will manifest in the here and now in some 'logical' fashion.
(Okay it needs a bit of cleaning up, what other info will be needed in the OOC beside bio sheets?)
Alright so the way I see it you can have one offensive power, one defensive power(healing can be defensive, but only one person please), one 'special' power that can be developed later and of course their can be combo attacks (GM discression). I think what I want to do is tell people to have their element and their totem match. Ex. Fire Lion, Moon Unicorn. It doesn't have to be perfect, but the powers need to revolve around them.
