Super awesome roleplay! Magical combat and conspiracies
The year is sometime future-ish with androids and such. Earth is running out of land/resources and tensions are heating up so that many believe a third world war is brewing. However, something even bigger is going on behind the scenes that may change everything. Insanely powerful magical creatures referred to unofficially as Granters are making an attempt to gain control over all of mankind. One such Granter claims that humans will destroy everything without help from the Granters, and says that he'll soon have the power to wipe out any human who commits foul play, thus stopping aggression leading to war and leaving the land and it's resources to the surviving humans who will deserve it, and then humans and Granters will work together to keep the world safe. He has the backing of a powerful council of Granters who secretly have evil plots in mind for complete domination, not just the anti-heroness demonstrated by that one Granter. The only thing stopping him from carrying out the plan right now is a magical seal placed on all the Granters that stops them from using their powers with the intent to harm/kill a human being. The magic binding them all in such a way is incredibly power, coming about from the days of the first Granter, but there's a rumor of a way to undue the seal through a ritual that...umm...this part I haven't thought of yet. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. It's something that will get the plot moving for a long while, so no "say this paragraph and boom, the seal is removed".
Wanting to stop this plot due to sensing evil intentions is a single Granter willing to stand up to them. He was wounded and forced into hiding, but help is on his side (unfortunately the same can be said for his opponents). To "get around" the limit of not harming normal humans, Granters have developed a technique of granting magical powers onto human girls, which forms a special mark unique to that Granter somewhere on their body (simply cutting it off won't stop it from reappearing elsewhere on the body). The evil council of Granters has a lot of agents hiding in the shadows that have recruited many girls to their cause of "world peace", and they've been turned into deadly soldiers able to obliterate tanks with ease due to most human technology completely ineffective against magic. However, even with their power they believe they can't get world peace without their Granter regaining his own power to deal with this horrible situation once and for all. For this goal they'll stop anyone who gets in their way, including the main good guy Granter and his own magical girls who oppose this plan. A neutral Granter can create artificial realities, so keeps such "magical explosiony" battles a secret by forming an artificial reality in places where magical girls are fighting that separates them from real Earth, and after the battle their surroundings go back to real Earth without all the damage done in the artificial reality (but the magical girls retain the damage/possible death, leading news stations to believe a new series killer is on the loose around the world).
Humans, not wanting to leave their fate in the hands of these relatively unknown and dangerous threats, have created their own special task force of cyborgs, androids, and people injected (dangerously, I might add) with magically infused tissue from a captured Granter in order to fight on a level able to deal with magical girls (albeit still with much difficulty for many of them, although there are some exceptions). This group will also get good guy magical girls to help out once they get to trust them, but at first there is much mistrust. After all, a lot of Granters are evil, some may or may not be evil, and the good guy is not able to prove his good intentions of helping humans.
So...yeah! That's the main idea. Our characters can be magical girls from many different Granters, not just the main ones, so you can be from some oddball Granter who we don't know if we can trust or not in order to make things interesting. You can also be a Granter or even part of the human task force where even male characters can have these magical powers. You can be a normal human, but in a fight expect to get your butt kicked unless you're like Batman against Superman, coming in with awesome planning and skill to try and come out on top against a far more powerful opponent.
Any questions, comments, suggestions, interest? I'd love to hear some ideas from you guys so I can add in stuff that you'd like to have happen in this roleplay. And yes, for those of you wondering, this is my last magical girl related roleplay (...for awhile?)
