This is a RP that is based on the books of The Earthsea Cycle. I don't think any of you have heard of the book so I will give a quick rundown.

The world of Earthsea is full of islands it is a mostly fishing economy unless you go to the larger central islands. I don't know much about the gods but there is a human one I think. Well the most powerful people are Wizards who all were ether an apprentice or went one of the schools.

In this RP we would be a group of students who just graduated or are in school and then graduate. The we would go on a mission after the Arch-Mage gives us a final exam were we need to retrieve a baby dragon from the mother Ruica who has been pillaging the western keys.

We can make up names of the land since I haven't read the books for a year and am a little rusty.

Character sheet will be something like this.

Name: Anything out of the ordinary
Magic Spec: Wind Control(Sailing), Fire, Earth, Water, Natural(mastering animals),
Looks: Not animeish
Origin: Make up an island and its backround.
Age: High School Age
Weapon: No great swords please :)
Boat: Think small
Other: Anything else

What do you think?

Sounds cool, ill join. Does the wind control magic spec also include power over lightning and thunder?

Oh just so you all know your spec is just what you prefer to do, you can do all types. And I don't think it is part of wind but since I am not going strict but using the book as a guide line sure you can I don't care as long as you don't zap me to death.

YAY, ill make a character.

I'll make my character now cause it just came to me.

Name: Kino
Magic Spec: Natural
Looks: Kino has reddish blond hair which is pulled back into a ponytail. It is tied back with a grape vine with a hawks feather in it. He is 6 feet tall and has light blue eyes. He is quite pail and is pretty hairy on his face were he has a 5 o'clock shadow.
Origin: Kino comes from the northern isles were he lived on the island, Dragon's Roust. He grew up whaling with his father to make a modest living. At the age of 12 he was putt under apprenticeship of the local wizard, who was a master at Natural magic. At the grand age of 14 he was shipped off to the academy of mages.
Age: 16
Weapon: A yew staff, on it is carved a sparrowhawk chasing a mouse. And a fine steel rapier.
Boat: A whaling canoe with a side support on the left side with a cloth sail with a faded picture or a sparrowhawk.
Equipment: Kino prefers a green hooded robe with a leather left shoulder were his pet sparrowhawk perches, he also has a book with symbols with a chain that runs from the book to his belt. The book was given to him by his master when he left it is said it has unkown powers that only a master can gain but he keeps it as a good luck charm.
Other: Always has a sparrowhawk summoned. Kino doesn't like school but loves magic and he stays in school with the love of the craft. He once in a while cheats on tests by using the "Eye of the Beast" power while his pet is flying around the room.

So is anyone else goin to be involved?

Dude I am so in. Just give me a day or so to get my stats together.

Name: Sarth

Magic Spec: Fire

Looks: Sarth has bright red medium length red hair that goes down to his shoulders. It is usually unkept and in disarray. His eyes are a dark green. Wears a black tunic with hints of red in it. He is short and stocky, with large muscles.

Origin: Lived at the island of brenter where his father was a knight. His father, from birth, taught Sarth everything about weapons. Despite his age and short size, he has a quick temper and is skilled in martial arts and multiple weapons. One day a wizard visited his villiage and told him he had great potential to learn magic. Sarth went with him, a master of fire magic. This man tought him a lot about fire magic and took him to the acadamy. Sarth was never the kind of magic person though and, because of his quick temper, is constantly getting into fights with magic, fists, and steel.

Age: 18

Weapon: An oak staff and two gladius short swords.

Boat: His own boat was destroyed by a rival of his in a magic duel. His rival destroyed it and then Sarth almost beat him to death but was apprehended in time. Now he hitches rides with other people, rents a boat, and is trying to build another one.

Equipment: His short swords belonged to his father. His father died shortly after Sarath left Brentar. Sarth went back and took the swords and a his father's diary. His father's death is a large contributor to Sarth's temper.

Other: Outside of combat, Sarth is easily angered. In battle, Sarth is calm and cool, always calculating the next move. Sarth has a reputation of a trouble maker and a violent person at the acadamy and is always avoided. Is being constantly told by instructors that he could be a great mage if he left behind his "Crude close range ways". However, because of his father's influence, he ignores these and strives to develope a unique technique that combines magic and his own combat.

Is this ok?

It's fine but I am not sure why you limit yourself to just fire but what ever. I will make the forum when Twilight has a character sheet going then copy paste your characters there.

Actually, im going to change that. Fire will be his main but he knows everything else.
