Okay, I've finally figures out how this'll work...

This RPG will work out similar to the Arena, but will be different in that you have to pick a side and create an original character in that Faction.

For example...
Right now, round one, you must pick one of the Colors of Magic to fight in. You can be a mage, creature relating to that Color, and try to eliminate the other side...

Rules:

1) Stick to your Faction. Make your choice before joining one unless specified (e.g. For this Round, you'll have to take the 'Magic: the Gathering' quiz to find out where you belong) and follow that choice through

2) No over the top powers and/or energy. If it gets too unrealistic, I'll tell you.

3) Stay within the boundaries of what your faction is able to do. In the future, I'll have an Alien vs. Predator Round...and if you're an Alien, (or a Xenomorph) you cannot use technology. In the first Round, if you're a Red Mage, you cannot use Black Magic, and so on.

4) I'll be dropping prizes and Items from time to time, so keep an eye out.

5) Definitely no powerplaying...

6) When you register your character, List down
Name:
Age:
Race:
Faction:
Weapon:
Strength:
Speed:
Intelligence:
Stamina:
Strengths:
Weaknesses:
Abilities:
Personality:

(*I need to know the Strength, Intelligence, and Speed, Weaponry so you don't randomly pull off unrealistic stunts or create/bring in items out of nowhere. No secrets either unless you send me a PM of them. It becomes too much of a bother when you randomly pull out a spirit companion the middle of battle )

7) Have fun!

So, any thoughts before I give out the details of the first round?

(A whacky start, but I havent really posted anything about what your factions magic style is...so...here goes)

White (Plains) is the color of order, healing, organization, purity, balance, law, justice, community, righteousness, and light (although not necessarily "good"). White's strengths are a roster of small creatures that are powerful for their cost, such as soldiers, knights, paladins and angels; protecting those creatures; healing and/or preventing damage; imposing restrictions on players; removing artifacts and enchantments; and the ability to "equalize" the playing field. White's weaknesses include its difficulty in directly killing opposing creatures, its inability to change game plans, and the fact that many of its most powerful spells affect all players equally: one of its signature spells, "Wrath of God," kills all creatures in play, including its own.

Blue (Island) is the color of knowledge, illusion, reason, dreams, ingenuity, manipulation, and trickery, as well as the classical elements of air and water. Blue's cards are best at letting a player draw additional cards, stealing control of opposing permanents, returning permanents to their owner's hands (informally called "bouncing" them), and "countering" (canceling) an opponent's spells, causing the mana to go to waste while the spell itself has no effect. Blue's creatures, which include shapeshifters, sea creatures and wizards, tend to have weaker base statistics than other colors, but commonly have flying or other "evasive" abilities. Blue's weaknesses include having trouble dealing with things that cannot be counterspelled, an expensive set of spells (especially its creatures), and a lack of ways to speed lands (which it needs a lot of) into play.

Black (Swamp) is the color of death, darkness, despair, plague, selfishness, ambition, greed, corruption, and amorality (although not necessarily "evil"). Black cards are best at eliminating creatures, making players discard cards from their hand, and raising creatures from the dead. Black, which seeks to win at all costs, delights in flexibility and unconventional tactics, and has limited access to many abilities or effects that are normally restricted to the other colors; however, these effects tend to require heavy sacrifices in resources, such as creatures, life, or cards. Black's main weaknesses are an almost complete inability to deal with enchantments and artifacts, its tendency to hurt itself almost as badly as it hurts the opponent, and difficulties in removing other black creatures directly from the field (though this restriction has been lightened in recent years)

Red (Mountain) is the color of chaos, destruction, war, passion, and fury, as well as lightning and the classical element of fire. Red shares an association with the classical element of earth with the color green; red has an affinity for the nonliving aspects of earth (rock and stone) while green is focused on the organic aspects.Red is one of the best colors for destroying opposing lands and artifacts, sacrificing permanent resources for temporary (but hopefully game-winning) power, and playing spells that deal "direct damage" to creatures or players, like "Lightning Bolt" or "Fireball" (which gave rise to another term for direct damage, "burn"). Red has a wide array of creatures, but with the exception of the infamous dragons, most of them are small and weak; it also has the vast majority of cards that involve random chance. Red shares the trickery theme with blue and can temporarily steal opponents' creatures or divert their spells. Red's weaknesses include its inability to destroy enchantments, the random or self-destructive nature of many of its spells, and its generally weak late-game play: it is designed to win fast or not at all.

Green (Forest) is the color of life, nature, growth, instinct, and interdependence. Green creatures tend to have the strongest base statistics in the game, and many of its spells make them stronger still. Green also excels at destroying "unnatural" artifacts and enchantments, while making use of powerful enchantments of its own, increasing a player's life total, and increasing mana-production capabilities. However, nearly all of Green's strategies depend on simply steamrolling the enemy with creatures; it has very little to offer should the opponent manage to incapacitate or overwhelm its horde. It also has a distinct shortage of flying creatures.

(Exerpt from Wikipedia...)

Soooo...if you're going to use llama magic, it better be related to your faction's Style...

Edit: Ignore any instructions on how to play the cards...the excerpt is just you get a basic idea of how your Faction works...

Okay...while waiting for the others...why don't we start...

The setting is a Magical School training all Five Magical Factions...Students can meet up with each other, Interact, Fight in an Arena, and the goal for each is to reach the status of First Place in the Starmoon Academy. There will be a Second and Third Place, but who wants to settle for those? I'll also be bringing in some NPC's like teachers and headmasters to teach students stuff. The deadline for the competition will be decided soon, and each Faction will earn points that I will display in the first post. The Faction with the most points wins this round and they will forever be remembered in a Hall of Fame I'll set up. New students can join whenever they want...but the later they join. the less they'll be able to help...

And...here's the twist that makes sure this doesn't wind up like some Hogwarts ripoff...
1) Students are allowed to kill each other
2) Students can select a Guardian Creautre to guide them through school
3) Trust no one outside your clan...not even the Teachers...or the Headmaster..who is rumored to have set up the whole competition just for the sake of sucking the winners magic...it's all a mystey...


Okay? Everything set?

Let Round One Begin...

Jenna was new to the Academy, she didn't even know how students were selected to go here, but here she was. Despite not knowing where anything was, she was calm. Her 2 inch black heels clunked on the floor, turning heads and attracting odd glances. She ignored them all, she was here for a different reason than everyone else, and her goal wasn't to make friends.

Dante hopped off the wolf he rode on and turned it back into the thick, black aura he hid inside of him.

The Starmoon Academy wasn't like any Magical School in the world. While the others based theirs on wimpy students, Starmoon only accepted the strongest, and its graduates often went onto claiming the top spots in the Magcial world...at a high risk, of course. Not everyone was expected to survive. Only the most powerful would.

Dante spotted the girl almost immdiately. She was a Blue magic user, a valuable friend to the Black. If there was any time to make an ally, it was now.

"Good evening," Dante smiled, his small fangs glinting but in a friendly, non-threatening way, "You're new here, right? This is my second year. Allow me to show you around."
