I'm gonna save up kp to make a Puella Magi Magica Madoka roleplaying club and I
don't even care if I'm the only one in it making about thirteen different characters
being mangled by horrorterrors. I will roleplay all by myself if I have to, like that
weird kid in the playground who has a mansion full of imaginary friends to feel less
like a lonely loser.
I love Puella Magi Madoka Magica so much.
So, so much.
Naturally, those that I've roleplayed with are auto-entried if they want to join.
No stupid run-on sentences or grammar failures or manglation (Unless they're
portmanteaus, because portmanteaus are funtastically good) of the english spelling
system m'kay. I will be a persnickety bitch about who's allowed to join because I'm
tired of posting in roleplays I find quite dull and childish out of sheer obligation.
If anyone who is interested (LAAAAAWL YEAH NO ONE BUT MY TWO OR THREE FRIENDS READS
THIS STUFF ANYWHO) wants to join who I haven't already seen work from, I will require
a roleplay sample.
NO STUPID CHARACTERS:
I like Mary Sues if you play them well. Characters with many skills and exotic
background can be fascinating if it isn't boring or cliche as hell. Yoruichi is cool
for a noble lady who can turn into a cat and is super sexyhot badass and is BFF joes
with a sexyfine storekeeper who manipulates people like breathing air. Disney
Princesses, OTOH, are blander than unsalted crackers.
Characters that are what you've always wished you could be are A-OKAY; Sometimes, it
even adds more emotion to what is being written. Five-year-old self-inserting like,
"SHE WAS A TIME-TRAVELING PRINCESS ORPHAN RAISED BY A BAND OF BOUNTY HUNTER THIEVES
WHO COULD TALK TO ANIMALS AND SHIT" is stupid.
I will try to keep things the opposite of tl;dr as possible about the backstory and
details of Puella Magi Magica Madoka if you promise to pay attention. Giving a damn
goes a long way, trust me.
HEEEEEEEEEERE'S YOUR GRAND NUTSHELL SUMMARY:
'Puella Magi' = Magical girls with girly outfits, cool weapons. You've seen
the formula in Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Lyrical Girl Nanoha.
Puella Magi are regular girls who make a contract with this cat-ferret-rabbit thing
called Kyubey. They get a wish, a wish for whatever the hell they want in return for
transforming into Puella Magi and fighting off Witches.
'Witches' = Monster of the week, in this case, in the form of monsters of the
sort that look like they came flying straight out of a drug-induced nightmare. Only
Puella Magi can see and destroy them. Witches drive regular humans to suicide, and
are very deadly.
Soul Gem: Your transformy object. It will get dirtier every time a PM
transforms, and in order to purify it, a PM must use a Grief Seed, which is dropped
by Witches upon murdering the hell out of them. When it's dirty, a Puella Magi has
less power, and if the entire thing becomes black... 'Kyubey will have to go make
more contracts' is all I'm going to say for now.
KILLING OTHER ORIGINAL CHARACTERS IS PERMITTED IN THIS ROLEPLAY.
YOUR CHARACTER WILL NOT BE IMMORTAL.
Godmoding = Ban
Only mods and I may create and roleplay witches.
They will not be grossly overpowered, but as your Puella Magi shows more competence,
the difficulty level will increase. Think of it as a video game. If you could control
the bosses you fought, it'd be boring because you'd know the outcome. No ending will
be completely determined by a witch-roleplayer- The outcome is determined and
affected by the ingenuity of your OC's actions.
Do stupid shit in battles, you're going to die.
Fight properly with your characters and things will likely turn out fairly well.
Impress us, and the chances of survival skyrocket. We want to make badasses out of
you, not Mary Sues.
Witch roleplayers are not allowed to godmod either. They must play within the power
of their witch, and have the decisions be in character.
I'm tired of writing stuff no one but me cares about. Bye for now.
