Combat Skill, Classes and MP
In this post, I will detail the Combat Skill system, Character Classes, and how MP works. The main amount of information for all three things will be in spoilers to cut down on post length, and so you can quickly navigate to which of the three you want to read about.


Combat Skill

This system is relatively new, and is used as a general guide to how powerful a character is and their capabilities as a character. Certain races have specific Combat Skill limits that can only be broken with permission, as a result of plot or history development, while some have an unlimited range. Most, however, are in the former category. For more information on this, please see the Character Races post, where it details what skill range they are allowed to use.

Spoiler:
 


Classes

Classes aren't required, but they can help define your character's ability to do certain things, as well as change their MP amount available (there is no set range, but there will be a hard cap based on their rank and class)

Spoiler:
 


MP Info

MP is a necessary component to spell-casting, for most magic users. MP availability to tied directly to your character's Combat Rank and Class, as well as plot related events.

Note: The rules in here may change at any time. If they do change, there will be a note at the top of the forum saying so

Character Rules

There are not very many rules, but there are some, so please abide by them.

  • Use the template! There is no excuse not to. Delete what you don't fill.
  • EXCEPTION: In some cases, required fields CANNOT be filled out. Please PM an Admin if you are having difficulty and think you should be excused, and explain your situation.
  • Keep images appropriate! This forum is publicly visible. Character pictures must be safe for work. Users breaking this rule will be banned on the spot (length depends on picture and user history)
  • If the character's race is not already listed, please post it to be added to the list. The character will not be approved until their race is (races will almost ALWAYS be approved)
  • Only use characters created by you! Any characters ripped from other stories, games, or any other form of media are not allowed unless you are the creator of said media.



Magic Rules

These rules are VERY important when making and using spells. Your spells will not be approved if they fail to meet these rules.

  • Use the template! Same as above.
  • No auto-hitting spells! There are very few exceptions to this rule. If you want to make one, please PM me first, rather than posting the spell, so we can discuss it.
  • Keep the power consistent with your character! A mere mortal will not be able to call meteors from the sky, for example. Be realistic about their capabilities.
  • Your spells WILL be balanced! If your spells are unbalanced, I will guide you through balancing it. Refusal to balance it will result in the spell being deleted on the spot (even if you put SO MUCH EFFORT into it, it WILL be deleted)



Weapon Rules

When creating a weapon, please follow these rules. There aren't many, but they ARE important.

  • No ballistic weapons! This specifically refers to firearms. Using a gun just ruins the fairness of any RP site, so they're banned here.
  • Be realistic! Please, don't make stupid weapons... A mortal can't swing around a hammer three times their weight and size. You get the idea.
  • Joke weapons ARE allowed. Just keep in mind that they won't help you at all if you get into a real fight.



Forms/Transformation Rules

Not everyone will have these, as they can be hard to get approved due to balancing, but for those who want to try get one, here are the rules.

  • As always, follow the template.
  • Balance the cost for power. Forms can be VERY strong. Make sure the cost or penalties for using it are balanced, or work with a staff member like myself to make it balanced.
  • Be realistic with power. A mortal cannot spend a little MP and become a god. Even if you make the cost ridiculously high, there are some things that people cannot achieve.



Summon Rules

Not everyone will have these, as they can be very hard to get approved due to balancing, but for those who want to try get one, here are the rules.

  • As always, follow the template.
  • Balance the cost for power. Forms can be VERY strong. Make sure the cost or penalties for using it are balanced, or work with a staff member like myself to make it balanced.
  • Be realistic with power. It's not easy to summon or create something conscious and keep them summoned.
  • Abilities can be added over time. As long as you ask first, so we can move it out of archiving to be edited, we will allow you to add and alter abilities as you see fit. However, it will need to be reapproved, and all changes will be archived in a reply to the thread.
  • All summons should be unique! The only exception to this is if they are summoning generic things, like wolves or 'characterless' soldiers.




About Approved Items

If you are wondering where your approved items disappear to, they are being moved to the "Unrelated RP Creation Archive". It is a section visible only to site staff, but any thread there can be viewed if you access it from a link. It is where all approved items will be moved, as well as the Character threads, which contain links to all of their spells, weapons, and all of that stuff.

If you have an item there which you would like to view or change, go to the Character Reference Links thread, find your character, and open it from there. You will not be able to edit anything that is approved without messaging a moderator or admin first, so we can unlock the thread for you.

Elements
Below is a list of all 'basic' elements on the forum. Be warned, that some cannot be used by mortals, and there are more that are not listed, due to being a combination of two or more elements. Some of these are listed in the In-Depth section, but some others, you will have to figure out yourself.



  • Non-Elemental (only use if you have no other element)
  • Fire
  • Ice
  • Water
  • Electricity
  • Earth
  • Wind
  • Metal
  • Life
  • Darkness
  • Space
  • Time
