For this round, your characters will be students at the Occultus Academy, between the ages of 15 and 20. Any sort of magic is allowed, as always, so long as it is within reason, as usual. I would prefer if characters were not yet experts in any of their magic yet, though having a preferred technique or two which they are proficient at is expected. I don't want anybody to emphasize on power- Your primary goal is to create a character that is fun to play.Welcome to Occultus Academy, the training ground for the Occultus Magica's next generation of members, enforcers, and innovators. Though the Occultus has long left each of the schools of magic to its own devices, the recently developing Warm war with the anti occultus group, known as the Confessors; whose goal it is to destroy the balance of magical and nonmagical life on the earth by revealing the existence of magic to the world at large; has forced the Occultus Magica to consolidate the training of mages as a means of preparing them to work together rather than seperately, as has been the case in the past.
To this end, the Academy has been set up in Osaka, where, nearly a decade prior, a series of events took place that sparked the ongoing war, as well as showed the Occultus that the many branches of magic working together could serve a far greater purpose than segregating them ever could, and so, a new experiment is taking place, one that will hopefully help to restore and preserve the balance of the world.
Also, I'd like to get with everyone who's going to be joining us in the new adventure and explain a bit more about the immediate setting of the academy itself, as well as what went on ten years ago that we never managed to get to in the original Roleplay.
