The Story

Image


Welcome! This is a game about a bunch of apprentices (Freshmen) attending a university of magic.All students will major in a school of magic, both to advance the knowledge of magic and to find a magical career after your session as a student is complete.You'll be involved in a lot of adventuring, dueling, and shenanigans of all sorts, but remember this is a university, rather you skip classes, do projects, etc. or not is entirely on you as this is a sandbox, and anything goes (within reason).

Like I said you can do whatever you want, exploring the forbidden underground, romancing, occultist shiz anything goes. The tools to craft your own story tale are ultimately in your hands.There will be a central story arc going on though rather you join or not is entirely up to you but it will have powerful ramifications for the school.

Lore

The Arcane University was founded millennia ago when witches and wizards of all species across the Multiverse converged to find a school to further the cause and advancement of magic. You can see this diversity in all the halls of this ancient school from the run of the mill humans to High Elves, Dark Elves, Drow, the odd Orc and dwarf and even stranger alien species such as beings made of pure energy, and the rock-based Yarnek.

The School is famed for its advanced magical studies and has given way to many famous and powerful wizards and witches throughout its history.Yet it's reputation is a bit stained, over hundred years ago the powerful and evil Lich Lord Moloch a former student of the College of Necromancy once nearly destroyed the University and plunged the Multiverse into chaos.Fortunately, he was defeated but at a great cost, the College of Necromancy was abolished, and after the school recovered it seemed the threat was gone for good.Still, some believe the followers of Moloch are still out there scheming and committing all sorts of evils.

City-State of Daria

Image


A cute and magical college town,where one can shop,play, and get into all sorts of mischief.Nearby is the Enchanted Forest, and Forgotten Mines, where one can forage for sorts of supplies for their adventuring.Daria was founded eons ago around the time the University was founded.Due to its status of hosting one of the most prestigious institutions of magic in the known cosmos, many empires have tried and failed to conquer the town due to all the mages who call this land home.

Mechanics
While this is a free-form roleplay I'll still have some simple mechanics to keeps things reasonable,there are three skills knowledge,dueling and artifice and you have 30 points to divy up the skills.Your character will also start with 200 coin that he/she can use to shop with.

Health:
You start with 50 points in health.Once your health reaches 0 Death whisks you away and your gone,unless a necromancer is able to revive you.Without your wand you do about 3 points of physical damage .Health can be replenished by eating,sleeping,or drinking a potion.You replenish your health every time you post and you have to post your health at all times.

Magicka
All wizards and witches start with 50 Magicka which is their pool to cast spells from.Replenished by sleeping,and drinking potions.Being near your familar also speeds up the rate of recovery.

Damage:
Damage is proportional to the wand you wield, and your skill in dueling.All students start with a apprentince wand which gives no bonus while teachers start with an adept wand to signify their higher starting level.

1-5: No buff.

5-9: +1 to damage.

10-14: +2 to damage.

15-20: +3 to damage.

Dueling has a sport
Dueling is when two or more mages compete in order to knock the other mage out.The mages start in a dueling circle, with the goal of knocking the opponent out or pushing the opponent outside the circle.Only wands are allowed, no physical weapons.All spells that are not forbidden are allowed in the match, as well as potions and enchantments to enhance the mages' ability.

A dice roll shall determine the success of your spell with buffers for enchantments and potions

You start with a Dueling HP of 30 if it reaches 0 you lose.

Dueling to the Death
Deathmatches where forbidden centuries ago by the Ministry of Magic but that hasn't stopped mages from duking it out to end.Basically works the same way except your fighting to the death.

A dice roll shall determine the success of your spell with buffers for enchantments and potions

You start with regular HP of 50 whoever reaches 0 dies.

College System

Image


All mages must major in a field relevant to the magic career, they will get after their education.It is absolutely paramount that you study and dedicate yourself to your school or else you'll fail and have to drop out.

For the passionate and brash, conjuration is one of the most powerful and destructive schools of magic.Casting fireballs, lighting, and ice are natural for a novice, but true understanding and mastery of conjuration comes from years of studying and dedication. This is the school if you want to control the elements and destroy all those who oppose you.


A college designed for those who lust for more pure combat rather than supplementary spells like in other colleges, the college believes in the ying and yang style system,
teaching mainly light magic which is less straining but somewhat less powerful than dark magic, which drains the user's body fast in exchange for fast and swift destruction of the enemy.

Most spells taught generally include repulsion of dark magic, combative light magic and neutral spells that do not rely on light or darkness, but rather a mix of both to deal damage. This school of magic is said to be very intensive due to it's courses and the intensity of the training, despite this dark magic has been prohibited in use of training and has been prohibited in teachings. This is primarily due to how difficult it is for one to control the craving for such power, and overuse will either severely scar or kill them. Most spells are not carved in and written out exactly, as such anyone with the same level of skills and knowledge could both know different spells as spells are borrowed in from other colleges and given a twist using light and dark magic



Mysticism or the mysterious ways is about unlocking the mysteries of the Multiverse.Telekinesis, defense, and reality-bending are all domains within this school.It can also be used to tell whats about to happen and lying behind the corner for the wandering adventurer.If researching and learning the unknowns of reality are your thing then this is your school


Involves manipulating the mind, and senses, of your subject.Things are rarely as they seem in the cosmos.Even in the university there are entire sections of the school hidden in plain sight, secrets abound and that's how illusionists prefer it.If your talents lie in lying to those around you then this is your school


Casters who take this school are able to tear apart the fabric of reality and summon all sorts of beasts, weapons, and objects from different planes of reality.Casters are also able to open gateways and travel through them, but it is very difficult to do and many foolhardy mages have lost themselves while exploring the multiverse.


Restoration is probably one of the most misunderstood of all schools.It involves not only healing magic, but ward magic has well.It is at odds with necromancy and restorative spells can summon spirits of life, to aid the caster while banishing ghouls, zombies, vampire and other undead.


Is the art of combining magical ingredients to craft potions and poisons.Alchemy can be utilized to achieve all types of wonderful creations such has turning iron into gold or changing the physiology and makeup of an individual.


An ancient and arcane form of crafting to add buffs to weapons, jewelry, and armor.

Hey guys this is my first rp so feel free to dole out advise to fix stupid mistakes or just to improve the gameplay.

Also, edited the OP and changed the starting age for students to 18 and now you start with 2 traits!

I am in quite a few RPs, but most of them are running very slow at the moment. Plus I love wizards so I think I'll pop by here. Can I reserve the Conjuration professor, please?

    Name: Taryn Hawkthorn
    Appearance: Image
    Species: Human
    Age: 18
    Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
    Backstory: Taryn is the daughter of Artur Hawkthorn and Elizabeth "Eliza" Hawkthorn (nee Morgenstern). Her father Artur is the professor of Conjuration at the Arcane University, where before he was a secretary for the Ministry. Her mother came from a well-known and renowned magical family and was the eldest of three daughters, she's now an assistant clerk and sometimes tutors children in enchantment. As an only child, she had the undivided attention of her parents which she greatly appreciated, but sometimes felt lonely because she never really had a brother or a sister.

    From her earliest days, Taryn knew she wanted to be a great wizard. And she was especially gifted in pyromancy, so she focused her skills on that. She ended up burning parts of the house on more than one occasion because the little firebug decided to get carried away and such. And as is typical of young mages, her powers started to get stronger and stronger with each passing day. Despite all the training her parents gave her, she needed to go to actual school in order to hone her skills. And as such, she was sent to the Arcane University when she came of age. She's a bit nervous as this is her first time away from home, but she's also excited.
    Major(s): Conjuration and Illusion
    Inventory: Apprentice Wand, Alchemy Set, spellbook/grimoire, several sets of wizards' hats and robes, her favorite being an orange and red set patterned with flames.
    Traits: Arcane Blessed, Wealthy
    RP Sample:

    Skills
    Dueling (How good you are at combat): 13
    Artifice (How good you are at tricking and deiciving): 6
    Knowledge(How good you are at Arcana,getting good grades etc): 11
    Optional
    Likes: Pyromancy, fire, the colors orange and red, colorful robes, her parents
    Dislikes: Being bored, when people call her a witch (she has nothing against witches at all, her mother is one. But she is a wizard, and she will remind you of such).
    Personality: Taryn is overflowing with energy and is quite the fireball, she'll go up to you and introduce herself with no provocation. She can talk your ear off all day and is abuzz with ideas. She likes to learn new things, and then share what she's learned especially if it's interesting to her. She has a zero tolerance policy for bullies and is a hard worker, sometimes to the point of ignoring things on the outside.
    Familar: A firebird (kind of like a phoenix but not quite) named Dragon
    Alignment: Chaotic good

    Name: Artur Hawkthorn
    Appearance:
    Image

    Species: Human
    Age: 42
    Sexual Orientation: Bi, but happily married
    Backstory: Artur is the son of two traveling monster hunters, Gerda and Kristofer Hawkthorn in Albany, New York. However his childhood was often spent moving around from place to place, especially tropical places. Places that most children didn't really go to, as his parents got contracts to hunt down and bring in monsters both magical and otherwise. And as a child, it often hurt when he made friends with the other kids just to have to go away and in most cases never ended up seeing them again. So the young boy became withdrawn, it became difficult for him to open up to new people as he wanted to spare himself the pain of losing them. And so it became harder for him to make new friends as many thought him aloof, however he had his brother and his books and with that he could mostly content himself. But his childhood fostered a deep sense of loneliness and uncertainty that he tries to hide from other people.

    Artur devoted himself to the study of magic from an early age and became a master wizard, which was quite surprising to his non-magical hunter parents. He didn't care much for hunting and weapons of war, he was a scholar at heart and wasn't ashamed of it. His parents were quite disappointed that their son didn't want to join the family business, but eventually they came around and accepted what made him happy. His brother Moises however always supported him, and as such the two have a very strong bond. He went into the Ministry as an adult and was eventually promoted to secretary. At a party, he met the witch Eliza Morgenstern, a society beauty and the daughter of a very prominent mage family. The shy, withdrawn young wizard was smitten immediately, but was hesitant about approaching her. As he himself was known for his scholarly pursuits but his family wasn't rich by any means. The vivacious, witty and outgoing Eliza took the initiative and approached him, and they danced the whole night. They started courting soon afterward, and despite the misgivings of her parents in the beginning the two married and had a daughter named Taryn, who resembled her father in looks but her mother in personality. Eventually, Artur was accepted for the post of Professor of Conjuration at his old university, as he felt he could be more useful for their world in that position than as a desk clerk.
    Major: Conjuration
    Inventory: Adept wand, spellbook, a supply of potions. Three healing potions, one bottle of poison, one invisibility potion, one potion with an unknown effect that he just picked up very recently. Several hats, robes and cloaks.
    Traits: Attractive, Awkward
    RP Sample:

    Skills
    Dueling (How good you are at combat): 8
    Artifice (How good you are at tricking and deiciving): 10
    Knowledge(How good you are at Arcana,getting good grades etc): 12

    Optional

    Dislikes:
    Personality: Artur is a quiet, shy and quite withdrawn individual, some would even think him to be aloof. However, he does open up more to friends and people he trusts, and he knows how to exert his authority in the classroom. He is a passionate teacher and comes alive when sharing his love of learning with his class, however he doesn't tolerate nonsense and his class knows it. He is cordial with his fellow teachers but doesn't attend faculty gatherings often. He loves his family more than anything, but doesn't favor his daughter in class and doesn't treat her differently than any other student. In fact, he probably gets on her twice as much just to prove he doesn't play favorites. When they're outside of the classroom setting however, he has no qualms about spoiling her.
    Familar: A Bengal cat named Dagda
    Alignment: Lawful good

    Actually, you can create any race you want, just nothing godlike or OP.Races are really there for roleplaying reasons and thus give no bonus.

    Also, a description of your race would be much appreciated

    I’ll be providing a much better and detailed description later, but it’s going to be a very humanoid race whose society is based around magic...

    And my character is going to be a Squib.

    Accepted but you'll have to make some edits.Can you specify how many potions you have and the type?Also, a broom costs 300 coins so make sure to deduct that from your starting funds

    Guys I should've specify this but your starting amount of coins determines what you can and cannot get from the store.
