❈ What's all this about?
Crystal Dreamers is a panfandom RP set in a magical girl type setting. Currently we accept OCs, AUs, and any previous game canon your characters might have.
❈ Is this like Madoka Magica?
It is A LOT like Madoka Magica. We're going for that same subverted, dark feel - but there will be plenty of room for happy stories, too.
❈ How does everything work?
IC logs (things happening in real time, like battles or meet-ups) happen in [community profile] crystaldreamers_ic .
Other interactions take place through the , which is for video, voice, and general chat messages. Anything OOC (including memes and introductions) goes in [community profile] crystaldreamers_ooc.
❈ Magical Girls? What?
In this game, Magical Girls are created by the NEIR Corporation by dragging a person from another world with a heartfelt wish (their "dream") into Moro-Umbra and equipping them with a crystal vial, which, when activated, will allow them to harness magical powers and weapons. This crystal vial is also used to collect the tears that fall when a shadow is defeated - a full vial of tears can be traded in to the NEIR corporation in exchange for safe passage home and a single wish.
❈ Are non-female characters allowed?
Of course! They will simply be known as 'magical boys' or by the gender neutral term 'crystal dreamer'. Likewise, older characters are allowed.
❈ What other characters are allowed?
Any age, shape or form of character is allowed. Animal characters will be transformed into human shape by the NEIR corporation to maximise their fighting potential, but they may retain features of their animal selves (ears, tails, etc.). Robots will remain robots, but will be scaled down if they are too big to fit in an average door. Very small characters will remain very small, but while transforming during battle will become average size.
❈ What are the rules about AU's?
AU versions of characters are allowed, as long as they are sufficiently distinct from the canon version of that character. For example, a Karkat Vantas who was born as a human in medieval england would be acceptable, but a Karkat Vantas exactly the same as in canon but with purple blood would not be. If in doubt about any AU, please ask!
❈ What are the rules about OC's?
Again, OC's are perfectly acceptable.
❈ Can my character die?
If you want them to. By default, a dead character will remain dead, but they will be able to redeem any collected tears they have for another chance at life. Alternatively, another character may spend their own tears on bringing them back to life, but this would be decided between the muns. No character may return to life more than three times.
❈ Can I play more than one character from a fandom?
Yes, up to a limit of three, and if a newcomer is apping for the same character at the same time they will be given priority.
❈ What if my characters already have powers?
In this case, their existing powers will be transformed by crystal technologies - they will only be able to use them properly at the appropriate clarity level. Depending on how many powers they already have, they may gain new ones. They still get a magical weapon and a silly frilly outfit, though, and they will still find it harder to use their powers at lower clarity levels.
❈ How do clarity points work?
Clarity points are a measure of the purity of your characters wish. A selfish wish - say 'I want to be fabulously rich', will net them a very low clarity score, which means that their powers will be harder to control, and will also leave them more susceptible to shadow contamination. All characters will have the option to gain more clarity points through events or other methods if they want to.
