You have heard about them growing up. The Guardians. You even went to the Guardian academy. You took their test, you got in, you were handed your weapon - a silver pendant, the weapon of your choice hanging from a silver chain. They will teach you the magics on how to summon the weapon while going to school there. However, when graduation came around you failed the Guardianship test or were not chosen for Guardianship. You were cast aside, forgotten, never to become what your parents may have been, or what you dreamed to become. The only thing you have now is this pendant that, since you were pitied, you were able to keep. There are choices for you, though. You may become part of the mercenary guild, but they are almost as picky about members as those seeking a Guardian. Or there is the airships. One in particular, the Airvenger, takes on those cast aside as Guardians and trains them so that they may become Guardians later on. Because there are always those seeking Guardians in other locations, places that you may travel while on the Airvenger. This is sort of a "slice of life" style roleplay. You play as a cast aside choice for Guardianship but you don't want to give up so when you are given the chance you join the Airvenger's crew. This is about friendships, romances, but most of all it's about second chances. I want this to be about your time as your character on the Airvenger, training and getting to know the fellow fighters. Eventually you will leave the Airvenger to finally become a Guardian for someone. At that time you can either create a new character or leave the roleplay. I will leave it up to you on how many characters you want to play at one time. The magics involved in summoning the weapon are merely the following steps: 1. hold the pendent, 2. ask the weapon for its assistance, 3. call forth the weapon from your "center" and, 4. the weapon will come from the chest as though by magic. Reasons its considered a magic to summon the weapon. EDIT: The world creates its own magic. People cannot use the magic without the use of items to act as a median. The pendants, for instance, being one of the successful ways to use magic. So there is no known way other than using pendants to harbor the magic. Does this make sense? You cannot summon a weapon without the pendant. Also, you cannot summon the magic through just any item. I'll explain this later on if there are any questions with specifics regarding what you want to be allowed to do. I am only looking for up to five characters to start the roleplay out then it will open up to as many as is interested, the reason why being that the Airvenger will be in this one town searching for up to five new fighters to join the crew. All others will have to be already on the ship, and will have a chance to enter once the first five are at the ship.
