    FT School for Aspiring Mages Idea [Idea by Requiem]

    Post by Kitty Pryde on Sun Apr 10, 2016 10:30 pm

    [22:24:53] Requiem : yall should have a school for training mages
    [22:25:09] Requiem : kinda like hogwarts...but more badass and flamboyant lol
    [22:25:18] @ Kitty Pryde : lol post the idea? X3
    [22:25:24] @ Kitty Pryde : we'd need teachers tho...
    [22:25:59] Requiem : the general idea would be it would allow the new players to experminet on which side to choose
    [22:26:38] @ Kitty Pryde : so all members can join in despite their alignment?
    [22:26:45] Requiem : the schools motto would be "To breed the next generation that will shake the worlds foundation. To breed the next people who will write the worlds history"
    [22:26:48] Requiem : yes
    [22:27:02] Requiem : the school will be divided into three houses
    [22:27:13] Requiem : one house leaning towards light
    [22:27:20] Requiem : another neutral and independent
    [22:27:23] Requiem : and the thrird dark
    [22:27:50] Requiem : each house would allow the students to tour and do jobs with professional guilds
    [22:28:07] Requiem : kinda like how a student would shadow an up[per classman
    [22] @ Kitty Pryde : that's a really cool idea o.o
    [22:28:21] @ Kitty Pryde : hm... would the mc own it or would it be its own seperate foundation?
    [22:28:29] Requiem : independent
    [22:28:39] Requiem : after all the school sides with no one
    [22:28:51] Requiem : its goal its to produce the next generation of heroes and villains
    [22:30:15] Requiem : in short to break the balance in order to move the world to its next phase

    [22:30:34] @ Kitty Pryde : im up for it o-o/
    [22:30:46] Requiem : lol
    [22:31:06] Requiem : the threads in school would be like class lectures
    [22:31:17] Requiem : and student who participate can aquire mp
    [22:31:24] Requiem : I mean exp
    [22:31:47] Requiem : this will also unclog the pvp action and focus on socilizing and character dev
    [22:31:48] @ Kitty Pryde : would students need to be a certain age to register?
    [22:32:12] @ Kitty Pryde : or is it mandatory in your pov?
    [22:32:16] Requiem : hmmm no, it would just be level base. Of course some classes wpould be divided into age
    [22:32:37] Requiem : forexample, if your are a rank D mage. you are freshman
    [22:32:46] Requiem : rank up to c you are a spohomore
    [22:32:59] Requiem : once you rank up to A. Or you find a guild you want to join. you graduate
    [22:33:34] @ Kitty Pryde : i dont think limiting them to soley wanderers would be a good thing o.0
    [22:33:57] @ Kitty Pryde : why not have guilds also send members to 'rank up'
    [22:34:06] @ Kitty Pryde : and recruitments for them could also be done n school
    [22:34:12] @ Kitty Pryde : cause cliques and whatnot
    [22:34:22] Requiem : yeah that would work
    [22:34:38] @ Kitty Pryde : paves way for events too. so like a school version of magic games
    [22:34:43] Requiem : yeah
    [22:35:07] Requiem : but guilds can only send students that are of D or C rankj
    [22:35:12] Requiem : anything higher is a no go
    [22:35:24] @ Kitty Pryde : any reason why? o.o?
    [22:35:48] Requiem : simple, why would you need to be in school if youre already in b rank
    [22:35:56] Requiem : youre literally on rank away from A
    [22:36:03] Requiem : *one
    [22:36:26] Requiem : it would be like sending a seasoned veteran back into boot camp
    [22:36:43] Requiem : the school is meant for saplings, newbies so to speak
    [22:37:04] Requiem : if a character already has leanred and grown in a guild, they arent a newbie anymore
    [22:37:05] @ Kitty Pryde : ah, that makes sense XD
    [22:37:08] Requiem : HOWEVER
    [22:37:38] Requiem : the guild may send a certain amount of mages as representatives as teachers and mentors
    [22:38:05] Requiem : that way they can help students transfer into their prospective guilds
    [22:38:20] Requiem : or if the student graduates they can choose to stay in school and become a staff memeber
    [22:39:46] * Requiem yawns
    [22:40:09] @ Kitty Pryde : hm...
    [22:40:18] Requiem : yup yup
    [22:40:23] @ Kitty Pryde : but for now, only one teacher each, no?
    [22:40:29] Requiem : yeah ahead master
    [22:40:34] Requiem : *head master
    [22:40:56] Requiem : there can be an evcent that the head master shows up to a guild / mc meeting
    [22:41:16] Requiem : and basically recruits people to act as teachers and mentors at the school
    [22:41:50] Requiem : and in another event the head master can secretly meet with the dark guilds to recruit teacher there

    Yes and a thousand times YES!

    Something like a school would make for a ton of interesting scenarios for student and professional mage alike. I myself think that B is about the right time to graduate but otherwise i'm all for it and also....

    [07:43:17 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : ooooh plots fooooooorming

    [07:44:39 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : i'd vote you had master lol
    [07:44:45 11/04/2016] Requiem : i would spend my days trolling the mc and all the other guilds lmao
    [07:44:54 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : and the school is gonna be a thing >~>
    [07:45:10 11/04/2016] Requiem : Mc: "sir, you've been dealing with dark guilds"
    [07:45:13 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : would also open the positions i want to do for the Sorcerer Magazine
    [07:45:52 11/04/2016] Requiem : Me: "I have money. Power. oh and all the guilds backing up my school. Do you really want to tussel with the achademy?"
    [07:46:00 11/04/2016] Requiem : lol what positions?
    [07:49:32 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Haha make the Head Master Reign Ford
    [07:49:34 11/04/2016] * Requiem goes to dabble on her character sheet
    [07:49:37 11/04/2016] Requiem : NO
    [07:49:39 11/04/2016] Requiem : lmao
    [07:49:42 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Just to piss off Zaroff XD
    [07:50:06 11/04/2016] Requiem : I'm making a beautiful woman
    [07:50:16 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Pssssh
    [07:50:19 11/04/2016] Requiem : cuz being a feminist warrior ftw
    [07:50:23 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : okaaaaays XD
    [07:50:36 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : And imma make the Sorcerers Magazine
    [07:50:37 11/04/2016] Requiem : that or im gonna make requiem my alt
    [07:50:40 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : But it'll be done IC
    [07:50:48 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : So positions
    [07:50:52 11/04/2016] Requiem : and make the head master my main
    [07:52:02 11/04/2016] Requiem : oh so like reporter?
    [07:52:13 11/04/2016] Requiem : editor, etc
    [07:52:35 11/04/2016] * Requiem yawns
    [07:54:18 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Mhmm
    [07:55:06 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : And the info gotten ic will be made into a newsoaoer for people to keep up with ic evebts ^^
    [07:57:06 11/04/2016] Requiem : also another position you may want to consider
    [07:57:16 11/04/2016] Requiem : is a king/princess/queen of fiore
    [07:57:50 11/04/2016] Requiem : just like the manga and anime a ruling force would mean that guilds would have more interaction with the city itself
    [07:58:51 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Hm... But arent they pointless?
    [07:59:01 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Cause the MC runs everything
    [07:59:08 11/04/2016] Requiem : other countries can have fuhrers, Prime ministers, Lords, and shogans
    [07:59:13 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Even in the anime the royals dont have any powet
    [07:59:27 11/04/2016] Requiem : the mc can be the governing force in fiore
    [07:59:31 11/04/2016] Requiem : but what of another country
    [07:59:34 11/04/2016] Requiem : it can vary
    [07:59:47 11/04/2016] Requiem : plus it would be nice to call someone king or princess ic
    [07:59:51 11/04/2016] * Requiem scoffs
    [08:00:10 11/04/2016] Requiem : fuhurer zaroff
    [08:00:55 11/04/2016] Requiem : kaiser zaroff
    [08:01:03 11/04/2016] Requiem : president zaroff lmao
    [08:02:09 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Tempting...
    [08:02:11 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : =w=
    [08:02:57 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : For now, we dont have anythibg besides fuore o.o
    [08:03:00 11/04/2016] Requiem : think about it, more ic dev
    [08:03:10 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Hm..
    [08:03:16 11/04/2016] Requiem : plus it wouldnt hurt for someone to be a princess lol
    [08:03:19 11/04/2016] Requiem : or a king
    [08:03:20 11/04/2016] Requiem : or a prince
    [08:03:42 11/04/2016] Requiem : like you said since they have no power, it would just be a little thing they can have as a title
    [08:03:57 11/04/2016] Requiem : plus IMAGINE IF THEY STARTED A REVOLUTION AND ACUTALLY BECAME RULERTS
    [08:04:02 11/04/2016] Requiem : now that shit would be sick
    [08:05:47 11/04/2016] Requiem : whelp on a lighter note
    [08:05:52 11/04/2016] Requiem : I'm off to bed
    [08:05:54 11/04/2016] Requiem : consider it
    [08:06:16 11/04/2016] * Requiem nods and scuffles back into her bed sheets
    [08:06:18 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Alrighty then. We'll talk more later ^^
    [08:06:28 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : See ya tomorrow maybe :3
    [08:06:37 11/04/2016] * Requiem sneezes
    [08:06:39 11/04/2016] Requiem : mkaye
    [08:10:11 11/04/2016] * Requiem rolls around and yawns
    [08:10:54 11/04/2016] * Kitty Pryde ruffles Req's head =w=
    [08:12:29 11/04/2016] Requiem : now what fc to use for the head master....
    [08:19:48 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Hi you two~
    [08:20:42 11/04/2016] Requiem : yo
    [08:21:17 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : So I saw the School thread, i'm for it
    [08:21:31 11/04/2016] Requiem : kewl beans
    [08:21:51 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : I mean, it just sounds so neat
    [08:22:21 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Not that my main will go but I think something like a school would be very interesting
    [08:23:36 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Point being: It sounds awesome
    [08:24:24 11/04/2016] Requiem : thanks lol
    [08:24:29 11/04/2016] * Requiem whisp[ers
    [08:24:36 11/04/2016] Requiem : I've always wanted to be the sassy head master
    [08:26:28 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Of course you did xD
    [08:27:23 11/04/2016] Requiem : but yeah, the goal of the school it to show newbies what path they want to choose without being bound to a guild or be a wanderer right away
    [08:28:03 11/04/2016] Requiem : this is primarily to have more people join dark guilds, due to my experiences the darkg uilds have little love due to less exposure and less event and job opertunites
    [08:28:29 11/04/2016] Requiem : having a school help facilitate that would be great to help aspring dark mages to grow~
    [08:28:54 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : The school itself would have to be an independent organisation IC for that though
    [08:29:25 11/04/2016] Requiem : yeah it was stated earlier while i chatted with kitty
    [08:29:29 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : I mean, what sort of government would encourage criminal activity in the slightest
    [08:29:43 11/04/2016] Requiem : the school is completely independent and self sufficent
    [08:29:58 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Honestly I think we need more nations and things like that
    [08:30:14 11/04/2016] Requiem : like i suggested earlier more positions XD
    [08:30:32 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Just saying, this is our world and it seems like kind of a waste to limit ourselves to Fiore
    [08:30:54 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : And maybe even Royalty NPC's
    [08:31:10 11/04/2016] Requiem : i was suggesting rpyalty to be ic
    [08:31:20 11/04/2016] Requiem : that way more character dev can occur
    [08:31:35 11/04/2016] Requiem : it much better to rp with a person instead of an npc
    [08:31:54 11/04/2016] Requiem : this can lead to bigger and more extravagant events
    [08:32:22 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : I suppose you're right
    [08:32:38 11/04/2016] Requiem : plus imagine if we had other nations
    [08:32:51 11/04/2016] Requiem : we can litterally have a site event when the nations go into war
    [08:32:58 11/04/2016] Requiem : have treaties
    [08:33:05 11/04/2016] Requiem : alliances
    [08:33:08 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : I used to be on this FT site where there was other nations but they never went too far with it
    [08:33:08 11/04/2016] Requiem : secret dealings
    [08:33:12 11/04/2016] Requiem : the works!!!
    [08:33:20 11/04/2016] Requiem : its all about excecution
    [08:34:20 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : I'd love for see just a fraction of all that make it into the site
    [08:34:39 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Even more so if we manage to get them all
    [08:34:51 11/04/2016] Requiem : dude foreal
    [08:35:01 11/04/2016] Requiem : it would make role playing waaaay more exciting
    [08:35:23 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : As for nations we'd have to make them all fundamentally different from one another
    [08:35:40 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Like lets say a nation where magic is heavily frowned upon
    [08:36:02 11/04/2016] Requiem : i actually have an idea for that
    [08:36:20 11/04/2016] Requiem : one nation would be tech and born with no magic
    [08:36:38 11/04/2016] Requiem : another nation would be a huge mining nation that produces weapons of all sorts
    [08:36:51 11/04/2016] Requiem : another would specialize in potions, and medical
    [08:37:02 11/04/2016] Requiem : another would be a huge nation based on lacrima mining
    [08:37:27 11/04/2016] Requiem : each nation would have thier own special shop people can acess if they have a passport to that nation
    [08:38:52 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : It would get kind of dull if they're just like shops though
    [08:39:12 11/04/2016] Requiem : no i mean the nations economy would be based of of it
    [08:39:29 11/04/2016] Requiem : so ic people can try to take over other nations in order to take control of the resouyrces
    [08:39:40 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Now that I do like
    [08:40:02 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : But I think another magic nation is needed somewhere
    [08:40:19 11/04/2016] Requiem : yes of course this is just a rough idea
    [08:40:20 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Just something to spark conflict with eventually
    [08:40:39 11/04/2016] Requiem : yeah
    [08:40:53 11/04/2016] Requiem : it would be cool if guilds where in different nations
    [08:41:05 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Like Tevinther, a nation where Mages are considered the ruling class
    [08:41:32 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Yet perhaps very corrupt as a result
    [08:41:38 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Hai Kitten~
    [08:41:50 11/04/2016] Requiem : yeah
    [08:41:54 11/04/2016] Requiem : like i said
    [08:42:17 11/04/2016] Requiem : nations = differences = conflict = all the muddfuhkin plots
    [08:42:48 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : You don't have to sell it to me, I was sold to begin with xD
    [08:43:12 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Like I said: I was very sad to see so many sites not making more of things like that
    [08:43:32 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : I could honestly bring in the kingdom system/plot/idea from my auperhero site to here...
    [08:43:33 11/04/2016] * Requiem nods
    [08:43:37 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : If we add more nations
    [08:43:51 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Cause i even have the school system there too lol
    [08:44:01 11/04/2016] Requiem : you see ft is a genre that would perfectly fit the nations idea
    [08:44:10 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Oh but we'd need at least one "No man's land" kind of place though
    [08:44:28 11/04/2016] Requiem : the school would also be able to bridge the nations together since its chaotic neutral
    [08:44:47 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Like a huge waste where nothing actually lives anymore
    [08:45:27 11/04/2016] Requiem : yeah that would be cool
    [08:45:37 11/04/2016] Requiem : then we can heve people like madmax there lol
    [08:46:16 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Honestly I kind of wanted a place liek that for a letter plot idea I had for my character
    [08:46:24 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : *later
    [08:46:44 11/04/2016] Requiem : it would be cool
    [08:46:53 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : But it can't just be an ordinary desert or anything
    [08:46:58 11/04/2016] Requiem : plus having ic rulers would be interesting af
    [08:47:11 11/04/2016] Requiem : yeah it can have S ranked mutated onsters roaming around
    [08:47:26 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : More like, it used to be a nation long ago but everything just burned dow nto the ground
    [08:47:49 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : And now it's a desert of ashes
    [08:47:55 11/04/2016] Requiem : that would be cool
    [08:48:06 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : I try
    [08:48:23 11/04/2016] Requiem : throw in some monsters in there then it would really make it no mans land
    [08:49:04 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Yeah Smile
    [08:49:30 11/04/2016] Requiem : like maybe the ashes have some sort of effect that makes the monsters more dangerous
    [08:49:41 11/04/2016] Requiem : thats why nations tend to stay away from it
    [08:49:45 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : Guys post this in the thread XD
    [08:49:46 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Oh, I know!
    [08:49:53 11/04/2016] @ Kitty Pryde : For reference lol
    [08:50:36 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : What if the nation burned itself ro destroy something very powerful and it's ashes are present with the rest
    [08:51:04 11/04/2016] Requiem : so like the monsters ashes causes some sort of mutation in other monsters?
    [08:51:28 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : Yeah, why not?
    [08:52:25 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : It would make for a reason anything might live nevetheless actually being native to the area
    [08:52:28 11/04/2016] Requiem : that would be siiick
    [08:52:53 11/04/2016] Requiem : imagine an event around that
    [08:53:51 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : We could even have someone hunt down the beasts in the desert to gather the ashes for something VERY nefarious
    [08:54:09 11/04/2016] Requiem : bruuuh
    [08:54:16 11/04/2016] Requiem : that would be sick
    [08:54:31 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : We should probably be posting this like Kitten said xD
    [08:54:32 11/04/2016] Requiem : nations can start experimenting on the ashes
    [08:54:40 11/04/2016] Requiem : copy and paste the whole thing lmao
    [08:56:09 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : The desert could make for the dnagerous frontier not even the S-rank mage may escape unscathed
    [08:56:31 11/04/2016] Roland Gates : I'm so pumped now lol

    Dark Guilds are outlawed and prosecuted as criminal associations. There is an officially recognized boarding school that prepares people to enter them. Ok.

    Well Claire, we kind of the figured this institution would be an independent organisation which merely seeks to further the use of magic rather than teaching them what to use it for.

    I know it doesn't make perfect sense but I think some interesting relationships could be established between characters this way. Field trips to guilds, professional mages giving lectures and we could probably stem a few newbie events out of it while we're at it.

    Nothing's set in stone but i'd like to think this could turn out more than okay if we let it

    Anyone seen Sky High? That and the Winx Club? If so, I believe this school would be a model of those two shows. Seeing as a school is an independent entity, anyone is allowed. BUT, to make it like movie high school, have 2 schools set up. One dark and one light. Wanderers get to choose where they go.

    LIGHT: These harbour the light mages and those associated with justice. They are taught by Rune Knights and other high level mages correlated with the 'good.'

    DARK: They are the school of the dark and evil. They welcome it and the chaos it brings. BUT, as a school, evil deeds are reprimanded if within the school. Outside, well, that's where the fun is. There are taught by dark high level mages. If registered in school and a C rank and below, they will face juvy and or school suspension. If more than once caught, they are jailed.

    RELATIONSHIP: Needles to say, both schools hold a rivalry. It's quite intense that sometimes the RK are forced to step in and put a stop to the chaos.

    The above is just a rough draft but I think it'll work out.

    this seems like an entirely independent rp universe. Great idea. Not going to be heavily used.

    Might as well go to the extreme consequences and have the Dark school enforce an upside-down values system, like Evil Academy in Disgaea 3. Like, people who study and attend classes are delinquents, and people who skip class and cheat are honor students Razz

    Maybe for dark mages it can be an underground school. Or the class can be disguised as a "good guild" class and the teachers if are well know can have facial reconstruction surgery Razz or use transformation magic to pretend they are a different person.

    Or it could be like in Legends of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. In that game, the protagonist enlist to a military academy, but some open-minded teachers, as part of a special curriculum, make them experience things that are well beyond the scope of what you would imagine a military academy to be like. Here it could be a similar thing, with kids being taught about the dark side of magic because, well, that is magic too. The school would NOT actively encourage kids to go join Dark Guilds, of course, but still, those in charge of it would feel that KNOWING about them is important, and is certainly more useful, for the kids, than pretending the dark side doesn't exist.

    So yeah, there would be only one school (having a school dedicated solely to evil would honestly feel silly), and that school wouldn't actively encourage joining the (still technically outlawed) Dark Guilds, nor actively form partnerships with them. But still, you could have a teacher who is a former member of a Dark Guild, field trips that "just happen" to bring kids to places where they would,"by mere chance", they would run into Dark Guilds (it would obviously be a set up by those in charge of the academy, whose goal is to get the kids to see the reality of the Dark Guilds with their own two eyes and form their own opinion, rather than blindly believing rumors), and so on.

    It would be very difficult to pull off: insist too much on the dark aspect and it will not feel credible, but if you don't insist on it enough, the whole thing will end up ending like a meaningless plot device done for the sake of edginess. It will be a challenge to find the perfect balance (as in, have the school's faculty plan for the kids to get in contact with JUST ENOUGH dark side, not once per field trip but not once per year either, and have a perfectly logical explanation for it each time), but it is worth the try IMO.

    For it to work, however, our Dark Guilds should need to be more in the grey zone, compared to the anime. Like, they would need to be characterized as extremists who have strong ideals, and aren't afraid of using illegal means to pursue them, rather than, you know, evil people doing evil deeds of evilness for the sake of being evil.

    I wanna say back when I ran a Dragonball Z RPG I had two schools VBFS and GBFS (Vegeta's Basic FIghting School & Goku's Basic Fighting School). One was for evil characters the other for good and neutral characters could go to either one. In order to surpass certain powerlevel thresholds you had to pass your chikara class. Each Chikara level had it's own teachers (Only requirement for teachers was you had to be above the Chikara class you wanted to teach) The class entailed on the teacher and student or students rping together whether it was basic lessons, teaching techniques (minor basic techniques/attacks), or having sparring matches between the students themselves.

    It was interesting and added a different flavor to dragonball z type game that is normally just based on transformations and fighting as much as you can. Some teachers offered tests to pass the course based on what they told/taught others had a sparring match with them and the students. I can say it was something that separated my rpg from others and everyone loved it.

    i say keep the school open for dark, light, and neutral. why? it would be easier to manage because it would be one school. AND PLUS. The school motto is to breed the next generation to move the world into motion. Also its not like the school is going to blatantly state they are harboring and training dark mages. The plan was basically have people volunteer they can be exdark mages, ex rune knights, light mages. Anyone who can offer something to the student body. The school itself is a gray zone, it takes no sides. It goal is to provide the students more tools to pave their own destiny.

    Please read my latest post (directly above Kyoto's which in turn is directly above yours). I think I addressed this in a way that makes it interesting (in that it adds a layer to Dark Guilds, instead of having them be just "lol evil") while still making sense (I.E. no "let's teach kids how to join a criminal syndacate!") from an in-universe standpoint.
