...perhaps that was a poor way to phrase it. Magic only works in special areas where magical waves can be harnessed and manipulated into performing deeds that bend the fabric of reality and break belief. Many places thought sacred or holy are actually sites of magic. In America, there are precious few. Some include the Black Hills, Crater Lake, and the Mojave Desert. However, the location with the strongest magical waves is in sunny Florida, due to the influence of the now-collapsed Fountain of Youth. Cascade High School has been built upon the Fountain, a sprawling private high school known for being the best and most selective high school in the nation.
However, despite the attractive allure of magic, few know about it as they walk into the halls of Cascade High, hoping to one day live in the elite boarding school. This lack of knowledge, despite the hundreds of students who have learned magic themselves, is due to The Trade. As the seniors leave Cascade High forever, they are granted a single wish in proportion to the amount of magic they have gathered during their studies there. Afterwards, once they exit the school grounds, those students lose all memory of magic and the ability to wield it. Rumors persist though, of the legendary 'black plates' that will allow a student to retain his or her memories of magic, and the ability to use it outside of a magical site.
This is where you step in, dear student.
You managed to pass the written exam, aced the interview, and were able to read the octarine ink at the back of the pamphlet, proving yourself capable of magic. All financial matters have already been taken care of by the school, and your living accommodations have been provided for. Whatever your final wish may be, we hope you also have fun with life here at Cascade High, and enjoy your youth down in sunny Florida!
Welcome to the world of magic.
There's no turning back now.
Welcome, I want this RP to be open. You want a school-wide tournament-style battle to the death? We can work something out. Want a dueling system to restore thy slighted honor? Already in place, but you get the idea. Also, feel free to make plot and world suggestions. This world is yours just as much as it is mine; create it!
Magic in this world is based off incantations and previously created spells. However, many incantations are long and arduous, and fail if bit recited perfectly. And it was for this purpose the magic plate was created. Each student has a personal plate that can 'memorize' and store any magic recited to it. This magic can then be used without an incantation, merely by casting the plate into the desired medium of your chosen magic. Any plate may store any spell within reason. However, each plate level has a certain amount of memory space, which the total amount of spells on the plate may not exceed. Using magic also uses up MP, or Magic Points, which are also used to decide how high a plate should be ranked up. Starting with 100 MP, you may gain more. MP are easily gained, however, through excellence in the classroom, community service, magic clubs, etc. So don't be stingy with your magic!
-note: You may create your own spells, but you have to describe their effects. I will tell you how many Magic Points that spell consumes per cast and how much memory it takes on your plate. I will not keep count of your magic such as "You used a Voice Warp and Magic Hands, subtracting 55 MP from your total of 56. You fail the year, BWAHAHAHAHA!" No. I'm just gonna See how often you use magic, and tell you every now and then if you are running low. This will probably not happen unless you are casting Voice Warp every 3 seconds. A few days before a ranking test, I will tell each player if he/she has enough points to climb up, and if so to what rank.
