Caring Gestures

Illnesses like the flu or passing colds don't effect the beings in the archipelagos... However, getting "sick" can still happen.

When Guides and Seekers are unwell in their hearts or minds, such as being overwhelmed with sadness, this can manifest in a physical sense. This looks different for every individual, no less. Symptoms have been known to show up as shivering or feeling cool to the touch, a need for more sunlight or magic-imbued foods than usual, even expelling dusty material in sneezes has been seen before!

To get well again, one must address the emotional aspect as well. Not all have such severe reactions; some have mild causes with greater physical reactions. Distractions, fellowship, good food, quality time with loved ones, anything can help to soothe.

What would help your Guide or Seeker through a rough time? Or, how would they try to help someone else?
What caused the upset to begin with?

Submission Guide

Magic Academy: Enrollment

Magic Academy: Enrollment

DrqpxGY.png

The entrance to the school is only mildly intimidating. A grand tree, reaching high above and just as widely, forms the structure school itself. Its front doors are fitted perfectly to the trunk. The shade it provides is so dense, it even keeps the ground underfoot cooler. Windchimes above suggest windows to rooms, some with decorations hanging from them... Windsocks and pinwheels flap and spin, and the smell of flowers drifts down to you. Despite the inside being hollowed for quite some time, the tree itself seems to be unphased. Er- perhaps it's beginning to do well again. A closer examination at the flaking bark, abundance of lichen, and faintly-glowing mushrooms along the trunk shows weathering and time.

Just as you're about to knock again, the door opens for you. The person on the other side greets you, ushering you inside. You're quickly given a paper with text and braille, and the person nervously excuses themselves to help elsewhere.

"Follow the main hall," they call over their shoulder. "You'll do just fine!"

Do fine with what? Is there a test of some sort?

You consult your paper. It tells you the first thing you must do is get in touch with your magic... With very little insight as to how. Instructions and signs take you to down a hallway with no doors along the walls. At the end is an unlocked door to a room that appears to be fully rounded. The floor looks like a target, circles expanding from its center in imperfect rings. This must be the center of the school, of the whole tree.

You close the door, and it seals so snugly, it's as if it disappeared. A soft click tells you the door has closed fully - but doesn't lock you in, you find, as you try the handle again. The only windows are high above, towards the roof, and provide less than ideal light. It's still enough to read clearly.

"Some may experience a calling towards that which is familiar. Others have described having to fight with a force, as two magnets with the same force repelling each other backwards. It may be something new. entirely Your goal is simply to work with it. See the table in the center, and open a drawer corresponding to what you would like to connect with."

Connecting With Magic

You approach a roll-top desk, seemingly the only thing in this room, and open the cover. Inside, along the back, are finely crafted compartments, each face perfectly inlaid with shapes relating to their study, and a lock at their center. Metal hooks are placed beneath each lock, from which hangs a key. 

Choose your key, and open its compartment to begin.

 

Available keys and components:
❥ Aqua:
Two shallow metal bowls, small flask of water, a towel.

The others don't have keys available yet, and remain locked...

You're now left to your own devices. Which compartment do they open? How does your character reach their magic?

Submission Guidelines

❥ You MUST complete this prompt to begin earning magical affinity. After your submission has been approved, your character's magic affinity level will be reflected in the notes tab of your character's masterlist.

To receive magical affnity levels, be sure to add a character to your submission for the character you wish to enroll. A character code is what you find at the end of a masterlist page's url. (For example, Toro's would be NPCGuide-001). Write which key you've chosen in the comments section!

❥ After this, you will also be able to gain magic affinity for your character by completing other prompts, of any category, that incorporate your character's use of their chosen magic field.

Your submission must feature at least 1 Guide or Seeker under your ownership. You're welcome to include more characters (of any GnS species), whether owned by yourself or other community members open to gift art, however only 1 character under your ownership can level their magic per unique submission.

❥ ARTWORKS: Must be at minimum clean lined with some shading or flat color; at least 75% of character should be shown.

❥ WRITING: Must be at minimum 500 words, clearly following your Guide or Seeker in the narrative. 

❥ POETRY: Minimum 30 lines, clearly following your Guide or Seeker in the poem.

 

As always, thank you, and we hope you have fun!
