this is an RP built around the mechanics of the Modern Magic Made Simple universe, but not concerning the events of the show. i really liked the ideas in the anime and wanted to try them for an RP. here's the idea and the CS explained:
Classical or Modern Magic: (the kind of magic you practice. Classical magic is preformed using rituals and incantations, and is better suited for creating Code on the go. Modern magic uses computers and programs and is better for creating Code in advance that can be used multiple times easily.)
Experience: (number of years you've been practicing magic)
Specialty: (you best magic related skill. this can be anything from a specific type of magic to a specific way to implement it.)
Unique Characteristics: (anything that makes your character stand out from the rest. special powers must be balanced with unique limitations.)
Magic Implement: (the object you use magic with. Modern mages tend to use cellphones and laptops on the go, and desktops otherwise. Classical mages tend to use staves and wands, along with ritual circles.)
Code: the basis of all magic. Magic is preformed by creating and manipulating Code, and it acts like a computer program for spells (which is why Modern mages use computers for their code)
Classical Magic: "old fashioned" magic, using the mage's own mind to compile and execute the code.
Modern Magic: instead of the mage's mind, Modern magic uses a computer to handle the code, and is useful for mass producing spells.
my CS: (as an example)
Name: Grace Wilhelm
Classical or Modern Magic: Modern
Specialty: Recognizing and Restructuring Code
Unique Characteristics: Grace cannot create her own Code, but she can restructure existing Code without a computer. it doesn't bother her much, but she has to be careful not to restructure something important. she can also download and store existing code to re-purpose later.
Magic Implement: Laptop
