Magic vs Robotics: A MangaRaiders Roleplay
Legends tell of an ancient time where the Mageborn and Technologists, enemies forged through visions of the future of Hasithia. Though they have lived in peace for millenniums, their differences soon proved that there was little room for coexisting. Centuries ago, the clash known as the Age of Scorching Hasithia has left the lands divided. Now, as conflicts between the interests of the two parties reintroduced themselves, the countries are hovering at the brink of war.

The Mageborn Guild: High Priestess Emryse
Spoiler
It has been ages since our people have seen such a crisis. The sun is darkening, and the moon glows red. The stars are no longer there to guide us, and we can no longer hear the voices that have once whispered in the winter gales. It all started when the technologists rose from the realms of darkness, and we have now lost our ancestral ways. Metal is cold and unemotional; lacking the passion in fire, the animation in water, and the hope in light. This cannot be what our world will become.
The Mageborn have been around ever since humans began to develop in Hasithia. Their powers all varied in style and scope. Some people could face armies by themselves, while others were left with little to nothing. The Mageborn have always retained their ancient traditions and culture, which have not been perturbed up until the introduction of technology and industry. They wish to hold the natural elements of the world pure, and think that the Technologists are threatening to destroy everything they and their ancestors worked hard to create.   

The Technologist Faction: Darren Von Clyde
Spoiler
We have been under the oppression of the mages for long enough. It is time for them to accept us as equals. Their ancient ways are no longer the world should be seen. The naturally gifted are granted higher positions in the government and live better lives while the weak fend for themselves. It is time that the world is for the people, not the elites. We are the future, and are not bound by the chains of the past.
The Technologists have been a growing minority in Hasithia. While the mages had powers to aid them in livelihood, the Technologists, who had little or no magic potential, began developing machines as a replacement for the talents that they lacked. The Technologists use the resources available on Hasithia to create tools that could assist them with any task at hand—resources that are being hoarded by the Mages inhabited on them. They think that robotics holds the key to the future, and that it should be embraced by all the inhabitants of the planet.

Welcome to the MangaRaider’s Magic vs Robotics roleplay. This is a loosely moderated freeform PvP roleplay involving the very members of the MR community.

Before you join, there are some things that we, the playerbase, will expect from you.
  • Activity. You should follow the story regularly, especially if there are interactions ongoing between your character and another’s. Remember, they can’t post until you wrote a response to them.
  • Respect. When you join the RP, you give up all your rights to the GMs. Never fear—all that means is that we have executive decisions when you start to go astray. Usually, it is to maintain a game balance, or to stop godmodding. We don’t like to be police, either.
  • Communication. I highly advise you join the Unofficial MR Discord Channel, but you can also communicate through in site DM. Make sure you have a convenient way of contacting those who your characters are interacting with. (Discord is 100% the way to go, trust me)
  • Quality. We are expecting that all your posts are sizable and properly written. This includes grammar and spelling. If other players can’t understand what is going on in your posts, it could ruin the experience for everyone.
  • Satisfaction. That’s right, we want you to enjoy the roleplay. If at any times it starts becoming a burden, we can find a way to remove your character from the story.

The roleplay is freeform, but that doesn’t mean a writer should slack off since there is no posting order mandated. Remember, the more active you are, the better the experience is for all the writers that are participating. PvP should generally be figured out by the players involved, but any conflicts should be presented to and dealt with by the GMs. Remember, your character doesn’t necessarily have to win fights. We are seeking good story elements.

As of now, we are restricting players to having one character at a time. Granted the genre and gameplay elements of the roleplay, you can make a new character after your original was killed off. On that note, we do not promote the killing off of a character sheerly to make a new one. Although it is allowed, don’t make a habit of it.

Follow the template below in creating your character. You can use your original OC, but make sure that they fit into the lore and logic in the story. You may be messaged and asked to modify your characters afterwards. (Again, Discord is convenient)

Recruitment Application-
Name:
Your OC character’s name.

Age:
For balancing sake, your character should not be immortal.

Appearance:
You can include a drawn image. In fact, it’s recommended.

Allegiance:
Mageborn or Technologists.

Strength and Weaknesses:
Gary and Mary Sues hurt me. Also, note that people with magical potential can be sided with technologists, vice versa (though technology is generally are less accepted by the Mageborn)

Backstory:
How does your character fit in into the world of Hasithia? Make sure to discuss any lore changing information with those in charge of the RP first.

I may have to get on board with this, but first, I'll have to start building an OC, since for once something based on me doesn't feel like it'll fit. I might more or less dust off one of my old muses and reincarnate her, or maybe I'll try something new. Should we post our applications here or send them in PM? I don't use Discord, but I have a Skype if that's preferable.

I'm in on this, but I've got a billion things to draw... I'll try to get around to making an OC soon.

@Mahlua
Have you tried Discord Mahlua? I honestly think it's legit better than Skype. But if it's a no go, I've got a Skype as well.

I highly recommend getting on Discord actually. In terms of text and voice chatting, Discord took a leading role in the industy (over Skype, Teamspeak, etc.) This is because of a vast array of reasons.

1. Mobile Skype is awful. It takes at least 30 seconds before messages are properly delivered
2. Discord works on literally anything. Discord is available for browser, download, and mobile.
3. Dark theme.

I might need to wait to see if anybody else wants to have a Skype before making an official group. At the moment, I'm against it, since splitting between two different communication softwares can become tedious. But I assure you, you won't regret it >:D

1. I don't do anything mobile. Ever. Mobile anything is always garbage. Besides, my phone is a brick and tells me it has no storage space even after deleting all my apps, photos, videos, music, and cache. It can't even update Google Play and gives me error messages about it.
2. I hate transferring all my s--- to a new program/server.
3. I hate making new accounts for any reason. It's like a weird pet peeve.

I already know all about how great Discord is and all those nice little statistics since literally no one in my Skype group would shut up about it for a solid month and a half trying to convince me to transfer over to it. You can see how successful they were.

Call me a grumpy old codger if you will. I refuse to get something new if the old product I own is still at least partially doing its job. I don't need fancy things like themes or "speed" to keep me interested. It's like, I already have something that does this job. I don't need another thing that does the job more pretty because the job is still being done and getting the new thing may waste five minutes of my life, and also the amount of time wasted trying to figure out some new layout and how a new program works. You'll have better luck convincing me when Skype literally isn't a thing anymore.

I don't think you actually need an account for Discord, you can just drop it in your browser for 1 time uses (like this RP). I totally understand the thing about transferring all your contact info and stuff like that though...

Either way, I'm cool with either Skype or Discord so put me down for both.   :dance:

Name: Edana (last name lost due to orphan status)
A.K.A: Bloodstone

Age: 30

Appearance:

Black hair shaved close to the head. Brown eyes. Carries one or two short daggers at her hip. If one could perceive aura or the energy of a person, hers would be questionably laced with something unsettling that lingers even after she's gone.

Allegiance: Mageborn

Strengths and Weaknesses: Hotheaded, sadistic, self-determined, bound by loyalty to the high priestess, renowned for offensive magic.

Backstory: Although a bit of a street rat in early life, her time studying magic proved her excellence in offensive elemental magic. In her early twenties, she was recruited into the Mageborn enforcers or military, where she takes great pride in preserving the "natural order" in which the Mageborns overpower the Technologists.

Name: Hangaku (real name is Tomoe Hojo)

Age: 25

Appearance:
Spoiler
On her initial appearance, she's wearing her traditional attire and carrying many many swords. She ditches this pretty fast upon learning what guns can do. After reaching the Technologists and learning a bit about their world, she slaps on some standard issue Technologist fatigues and starts spending all her money on guns. She still wears her prayer beads and some ornaments from her home.

Allegiance:
Technologists

Strengths:
Extremely proficient with eastern swords. Give her a katana and she can do work. Give her more than one and magic happens.
Amoral. She'll do anything if she feels like it.
Agile, but no more agile than a regular human is. Also quite sneaky.

Weaknesses:
She ditched all her swords upon arrival because guns are awesome. She has no way of getting her swords back.
She is a horrible shot, never used a gun before but she loves them.
Whimsical, her loyalties are very loose to put it bluntly. She does whatever interests here whenever she feels like it.

Backstory:
A ritual to summon the spirit of an ancient warrior to assist the Mageborn goes very wrong. Hangaku, Saint of Swords appears. Immediately, she concludes the Mageborn are "super lame" as she has absolutely no aptitude for magic. In the middle of the night, as her summoner mourns the failure of the ritual, Hangaku escapes the Mageborn keep. She discovers guns for the first time during her sojourn, and she immediately decides she wants more guns. Selling all her exotic swords, Hangaku follows the trail of bullets to the "gunnest" of cities. She immediately joins the Technologists when they promise many, many guns.

-Addendum-
If anyone is willing to RP as her Mageborn summoner, that would be totally awesome. I think there is the potential for some great interactions!
