On my island, teachers are very important in the study of magic. Magic is what keeps this island afloat! It's what helps recycle our water and capture rainfall! So our teachers have an important and vital role in our society. Then there are the Masters, the most powerful magicians of their branches who continue to push the limits and discover new ways to utilize their magic.


1. Teacher is not equal to master. A master can be a teacher, but a teacher isn’t necessarily a master. Teachers just understand their branch well enough to teach it. Masters have excelled and expanded their branch. Know the power difference.

2. One of the mods or myself may or may not conduct a brief conversation (over CR or through an IM site like tinychat) with you just make sure you understand what is and isn’t possible with the area of magic your becoming an expert in. Read the descriptions carefully and please come with questions! We can answer whatever questions you need and we will ask you a few questions that you as a teacher/master should know.

3. We need very good RPers for these positions. We may (probably won’t, but it is possible) ask you to describe a situation for us and see if you can use good details and show us understanding of your branch of magic. This may sound strict, but we aren’t looking for people to turn down. We are just making sure everyone has a reliable teacher/master to learn from.

4. There can only be one master of a branch at a time. The master is the person with the highest proficiency and understanding of their branch of magic. Now if someone were to become better than them or the current master were to disappear or die, then a new master would take the reigns.

5. Lastly, I, as the creator, must point out that Masters/teachers have only one benefit power wise: they can use high level spells and won’t run out of magic very quickly. This doesn’t mean unlimited magic/power. Also, you as a CR member are on the same level as any other member. You aren’t a mod, or a weird hybrid. I don’t wanna sound like a jerk or strict, but I’ve been in RPs in the past where this has been a problem. These are character positions, not user positions.

Post 2 rules: Try to balance your characters’ powers. Don't have all of them be super strong. Balance it out. Some strong, some weaker. You can’t just have a large number of all-powerful magicians and the world’s best gunslinger. This keeps the power balance between people fairly equal.
EVERYBUDDY STARTS FRESH. Your first character might have dabbled in magic a bit or might know a few spells, but nobody starts as a master/teacher unless you went through the application process and were accepted. Otherwise, everybody's first character starts at a similar level to help keep things balanced. This also benefits active RPers and encourages more active threads, thus keeping the RP alive.

Master Application Form

Name: Seth Greenvale

Age: 20

Gender: Male

Bio: Seth was born into a noble family with ten siblings, fortunately being the only one that showed magical capabilities. His family was rich and posh, but Seth never cared for money or influence, since he was always a prankster, and by no choice of his, he was known as the Trickster. At the age of six, he experienced his first display of Buffing, which was revealed to be the power behind his pranks, despite not knowing this himself. But this also caught the attention of the -then- master of Buffing. He saw potential but declared he was much too young to learn the art of Buffing, and so left him there. This didn't stop Seth though. For two years he followed the Master around, trying to use what little magic he had to fool him, and failing every time. When he turned eight, the Master gave up and took him in secretly, since it was frowned upon for a noble child to learn at such a young age. However when he became of age at 11, the Master just dropped him, saying that now he was able to publicly study for his own means, and that the spot as apprentice had to be earned just like the rest of the children at the time. The master didn't pick anyone for a whole year, saying that the role of apprentice was unique and fulfilling to his definition of the role. Seth tried for what felt like years persuading him, but eventually gave up. Three months passed since his attempts, and heard that noone was deemed worthy of being at his side, so he just shrugged it off and picked up his apple as normal. Having a headache at the time, he made an idea of using his buffing to make his medicine act faster than normal, by buffing the material to crumble easily. Without him knowing, the master had walked past while he did this, and noticed that Seth had taken what he had learned, and evolved it to make something new and fresh that hadn't been seen in generations of Buffing. On the spot, he was given the apprentice place, and wasn't given the choice. He was told that the apprentice had to be someone who shared the beliefs and enjoyment of Buffing as he did, and his masters before him, and to see it as an enjoyment rather than a job, since he was told that the Master saw him have fun with his apples, buffing them in so many ways.

Seth continued his training for another eight years, but this time, he was allowed to publicly practice and train with his Master for the whole world to see. He was happy and calm all the way, since his love for the branch was seen in full light. That was until the Master called him to his room, where he was resting in bed. Seth didn't understand what was happening, since his grandparents were still alive so he hadn't experienced this before. The master held his hands out and gripped Seth's tightly, smiling all the time while he did so, and told him to live life to how he wished, and to ensure his love for Buffing never died. Seth shook his head, telling the master to stop saying such annoying things like this, and that he could easily whip up a Buff to make it all go away. But the master simply shook his head. "Not all things can be solved with a buff Seth" was all he said. On his bedside table was a box, which he opened and held out two golden bracers for Seth, stating these were his Sorte, since Seth had never seen the master's Sorte before, since he always wore a long robe with long sleeves. He said that with these bracers, Seth was recognised as the new Master of Buffing, and that it was approved beforehand...having been decided years beforehand upon his death. Seth shook his head and pushed them away, stating clearly that he wasn't needing them since the Master was lying about not being able to do something. But the Master just smiled and pulled Seth in, hugging him for the first time ever in their time together. "Be strong and keep our legacy alive... Work but also enjoy.." He said before laying back, and with his smile still on his face...passed away.

Seth couldn't do anything. He looked shocked and didn't know what to do in that situation, but the tears just flowed. For an hour he knelt at his master's bed and mourned, cursing the branch system for not having a cure for this. But the words of his master echoed in his mind, allowing him enclosure and focus to what he was entrusted. He stood up slowly and took the box, opening it slowly. He placed the bracers on his wrists and felt the warmth of the owner that once wore them. He wiped his face and stood up straight, bowing to his master and quietly leaving the room...as the new Master of Buffing.

But his first task wasn't Buffing.

It was to say goodbye to his friend and mentor one last time.

Master of this branch: Buffing

Post 2 laws:


Brief character intro:

Seth Greenvale here, Master and head of the Buffing department at the Jyubei-Hilda University! Buffing is the art of shifting an object to another property. Make a feather as heavy as an elephant... or a stone as strong as a steel wall. This branch can be a hassle for some, but it can be the best enjoyment you could ever have. Think of the possibilities of what you could alter! Take it from me and the late Masters, it's a legacy worth learning..

Master Application Form
Name: Crimson Solstice.
Age: Just Nineteen.
Gender: XX chromosome.
Personality: Crimson can be seen as a kind, fun, and happy girl on the outside, but in reality, her attitude is a cruel and harsh one. She's somewhat of a yandere, and even though she's kind of everyone, there's always times where the temper of hers slips. Those are the times when she's truly unpleasant.
Biography: To Crimson, art was her entire life, from the first day of school, all she could worry about was how she was going to draw her trees and suns better, and make her designs more spectacular. To everyone around her, it was obvious that she was going to pursue the magic of creation. Even at the earliest time of her memory, all she could remember were people talking about how talented she was, and how she was a prodigy. It frustrated her, and even though she tried to distance herself away from arts, it was almost like a magnetic reaction. She eventually just had to go with the flow, and she learned creation magic.

It was a breeze for her, with her artistic abilities and her unusually detailed memory. She graduated top of her class with no effort at all, and it was that which made people around her start to hate her. How could someone achieve something so great without doing anything. She wonders about it herself even. Crimson would often go to a dark place and just sit there, to get away from everything. One day, someone found her in that state. At first, she didn't know who it was, but she didn't really care. It was just a good person with whom she could talk about all the things that bothered her. She was only 12 at that time, and soon, she began to realize something about the person she was pouring her heart out to. They seemed familiar, and when she gave a long thought to it, she finally realized. It was the Master of the creation branch at the time.

Needless to say, they knew about Crimson's abilities in creation, and she began to learn tons and tons from the Master at the time. She was simply overjoyed, partly because someone was actually happy about how well she could use the magic. But fate was not on her side, and after 7 years, the person closest to her died. You could say she had reluctantly accepted the position of Master, but whatever it is, she holds the position now. Even if she's considered a prodigy, she has only held the position of Master for a few short months, and she's not yet used to it.

Master Application Form
Name:
Jason Ryder
Age: Twenty one
Gender: Male
Bio: As a kid he kept to himself—socially awkward at the best of times. Social life meant nothing to him, all Jason ever wanted to do was study, study magic. The moment Jason had eyes to read he was glued to the inner workings of magic, although he barely ever spoke he would dive into research papers and studies about the five types of magic, only, one always drew his attention more—arcane magic.
When he finally turned twelve, Jason breathed a sigh of relief and excitement as he learned that arcane magic was indeed his calling. He then spent five years cooped in his work room, caught in the mechanics of arcane magic and how the two magic circles work with each other. Jason loved seeing the puzzle pieces fall in place and eventually caught the eye of the Master of Arcane magic whose first reaction was to laugh at Jason's appearance (ink smudges, food crumbs, unbrushed hair, thick rimmed glasses, words imprinted on his face). He was then taught to put his gift with arcane magic to use and not just study it in theory, in a couple months Jason could bring and channel energy more naturally than breathing. He also learned the hard way that he has to keep appearances and socialize...which he did...eventually, although that 180º turn was a bit over the top, giving him a wrong image in another way.
On Jason's nineteenth birthday the previous Master gave Jason a sparkly looking gem before disappearing. He was then given the Master title and was very thankful that he cleaned up and knows how to talk to people. Jason swears to one day find the old Master and then prove himself better so to reaffirm that the title should truly be his.

"Many people think that summoning magic is the least complicated and weakest of all the others. However they clearly have never seen my might, because I am not a person to be trifled with."

First off, I just wanna say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this character. The pic goes perfectly with the personality I'm feeling from this character. And I've been secretly hoping for a character like this since I made the RP. Also I love that she does summoning. They way you described her training in her bio, that is EXACTLY what I thought summoning was perfect for when I thought it up. This character is APPROVED, but I gotta do what I did to the others and make sure you have a good grasp on Summoning (even though I'm fairly confident you do according to the bio, just gotta be fair and whatnot lol)

1) Can I Summon an object I have not previously marked?
2) Can I Summon anything from the Earth's surface?
3) Explain a very brief scenario where summoning could come in handy.

Like I said, judging from your bio I fully approve and your character IS approved, I just gotta do the questions cuz I did them for the other 3

Thanks, I'm glad you like her! I worked all day yesterday on her, so it's nice to know all that work payed off And of course you gotta do the questions! You wouldn't want a rebellion on your hands, would you? Especially if it were like the Hunger Games. That would be bad O_O .....Anyway I'm just gonna shut up now since I'm kind of rambling and answer the questions lol xD. So ya.....

1.) No you cannot! It must be marked first.
2.) You can as long as it's a real world item, is marked, and is within range.
3.) Well...summoning could come in handy if say, Reyna were suddenly attacked by someone and she were unarmed at the time. She could simply use her abilities and summon a previously marked weapon, like say a sword that's within her range, and use it to fight off the attacker...and hopefully kick their ass xD

Well there ya go. All questions answered sir!

Name: Vinox Abyss
Age: 34
Gender: Male
Bio: Vinox, one of the older of the Abyss siblings, had been devoting a few years to mastering the magic of Manipulation before he became a teacher of the very art that which he had separated himself from the world to learn. When he came back to the rest of the world, he was masked and forgotten but the Abyss name still remained. Vinox, the twitchy sorcerer that he is, became a teacher for no other reason then to pass on his knowledge of the Manipulation magic to the rest of the world while his little brother, Megalo, ignored his classes. Vinox is a quirky man to keeps his bandanna on at all times. He can be kind at times when he is working or strangely secretive when you have your back to him. Vinox is a mystery under that mask, not even the rest of the Abyss family knows what he looks like now....
