Mahou Shoujo Troper Magica
Based on the ongoing anime Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica by studio SHAFT, written by Gen Urobochi, this RP will take place in the fictional metropolis of Kyoen city, which is divided into the many smaller cities in which the RP takes place. To the moment we have Fujiwara, Imaizumi and Yamanaka cities.
A chosen few of the maidens living on these peaceful modern cities will soon be given the opportunity to live the fantasy of being a Magical Girl, fighting for hope wishes against the dark witches who spread curses and despair. In exchange for their brave service, the contractor, Kyubey, shall grant each of the young maidens a single wish.
The life of a Magical Girl is filled with trials and danger... However such is the prize to pay for a miracle capable of changing your life.
Alright Magica Roleplay. Welcome to the Grimdark wonderful life of the protectors of these two cities!
You can join in as a regular girl yet to make her contract, a veteran Magical Girl from town or a migrant Magical Girl from out of town. You will need to fill up these sheets to join in
As the GM I'll be playing as Kyubey and depending on the entries I might play a temporary senior Magical Girl. Though there will be combat have in mind that character relationships will be an extremely important part of this RP. Please try to avoid meta playing too much.
Hope we all have a lot of fun. If there are any questions about the setting, playing mechanics or anything feel free to discuss.

I'm in. I think I'll avoid the 'boy who wants to be a girl' thing because that's just asking for grimdark Gayngst.
So that isn't your favorite flavor of Grimdark, Funnyguts?
While I'd be most suited to play that role, honestly adding in that factor and having it played off of might cut too close to home than a game like this should.
So… are we encouraged to come up with Japanese-sounding names, or is any nationality alright with that?
We can be the Magical Foreign Exchange Student Squad!
Hmm I see... Understood.
In that case I'll be waiting to see which other concept you come up with.
You may be a foreign student or your character's parent might be immigrants. Still the RP is set in a Japanese city, so Japanese Magical Girls are encouraged.

Just popping in to provide This, a personal favorite for Given names
and a list of common Japanese surnames.
The theme in Madoka is having a given name as a surname though, so make of that what you will.
I'll be observing closely, and possibly participating.

I guess that Hikari is her given name, right? With this theme naming things can get a little confusing if we don't decided on which name order we use so I'll be grateful if people put the family name first and the given name last.
^I'll do it that way then.
And if it isn't clear I'm not a MS yet.
Hikari wishes she could pilot an MS though.

Funnyguts, would you mind someone else playing a transgirl? I'm very interested in playing one, but I'll just come up with something else if it makes you feel uncomfortable.
Go for it. Just be careful with it, okay?
Right… I guess I have a character. As I said in the main MM thread, I have zero experience with online role-playing, so don't except anything too impressive out of me; I'm going to be learning the ropes as we go.

Alright, Chiyo is accepted.
And don't worry Gilphon. The best way to learn is to try.
Let's see here.
Pre-post edit: Damnit Gilphon you scooped my character design. >.>

A couple things for Daltar:
1. I recommend that you give minimal consideration to how much the game matches the show. If you want things to be different, do it. There's a good chance that if you're planning something future episodes will Joss it, so create your own rules as you feel would make a good game.
2. If no one makes a character that starts as a MS, can I make a second character? I promise not to talk to myself too much.
So we got a pair of glasses girls. That'll be interesting.
Akira is approved.
As for Funnyguts, don't worry I got a few things planned and if I get Jossed by the anime then I'll either adapt or keep things as I interpreted them. Depends on the situation.
And, yes, you may make another character who's already a MS if we don't get one soon.
Name: Megumi Kazue
Appearance: Hair dyed a light shade of blue with small black tips. Usually wearing a gothic lolita dress — black with white lace. Wears a small tophat on her head.
Personality: Arrogant, with a sweet exterior. She is a idol — a newer one, put into the business due to her parents, even though it gave her quite a ego. Born in Osaka, Japan, her common stereotype was The Idiot from Osaka until she showed singing talent and got into the idol business...even though she had gained her magical girl form beforehand due to her desire to be "a loved and cared about girl in the media".
Wish: To be a "loved and cared about girl in the media".
Wish derived special ability: She is naturally persuasive — what she wants, she gets with a few words.
Weapon: A microphone that projects her soundwaves, as she can control them. This microphone can also, with a press of a button, transform into a gun, although this form is not used often.
Magical Girl Costume: A pink dress with a tiara on her head, coupled with a white mask over her face.
Other: In this form, she undergoes a personality change. In contrast with her arrogance, she is shy and uncertain. Her name in this form (at least, what she calls herself) is "Masami Makoto"...which means 'becoming beautiful, sincerity' — quite apt.
I tried, this probably isn't good enough XD

Okay, here we go. Hopefully I'll have time to follow up on this.
@Daltar: I have an idea of what the wish will be, as well as what the unfortunately results are. Haven't ironed out what the powers are yet. Should I pm the info to you, or just post it here?
edited 26th Feb '11 8:32:59 PM by JapaneseTeeth
^^I hope Kazue spams microphones.
Alright, in order let me see...
Maria Holic: Everything looks fine, thought there's one thing I have to point out. I would ask you to reconsider the wish given special ability. The control over sound and such can be her natural magic powers, while the special ability in my opinion is something derived from the wish. In that case if she wished to be loved by people and be popular her special ability should be something like that. Maybe she can dazzle familiars with her charms for a while or is more naturally persuasive with other people. Something of the sort.
Japanese Teeth: Feel free to post it here or send it to me by PM if you don't wish to spoil the surprise much. I do worry about the part of using conventional weaponry... she's a fifteen year old girl. It would involve stealing guns and explosives from her dad?
^ Okay, tried to fix it.
