The Mysteries of Magic
This game is a reboot of an urban fantasy game that's been running for over eight years. I need a slew of new characters as the old ones have left, but with this game you can expect a long, rich background and coherent history. There are plenty of mysteries left to explore as a student of the Mysteries.

Premise: At the beginning of the game, you were a normal, ordinary teenager, living in the modern world, with all the ills and conveniences that such implied. As far as you were aware, you had no magic in your life and no inkling that another world outside the one you know existed.

Through a series of terrible and mysterious events, you were saved by a cabal of young magi and spirited away to their ancient Tower. Their customs were strange, as they wore archaic robes and pledged loyalty to someone known as "the Wizard", one of the greatest sorcerers in the cosmos, who possessed powers both strange and wonderful. There they professed a veneration for the Mysteries, a religious doctrine, ethos, and philosophy for the veneration of truth and knowledge, praying to no gods and rejecting the acquisition of power or status.

With time, you would learn more about the strange new cosmos into which they’ve been thrust. They would make friends (or enemies) with the Tower's strange inhabitants and soon discover they too were gifted with magical spells that allowed them to shape the world in strange and powerful ways.

Notes: The game takes its inspiration from middle grade fantasy like Fablehaven, The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and The Graveyard Book. The biggest theme, of course, is the coming of age, or the bildungsroman, as so often occurs during these sorts of stories.

As a portal fantasy, a large part of the story will be about exploring and understanding the new world in which you find yourself. However, danger abounds and doing what is right is not the same as doing what is easy.

The Tower is moored to a physical location on Earth, and much of the game take place in the United Kingdom, dealing with the magical politics there, though your character can be of any nationality and race. Diverse backgrounds are welcome and will be accepted.

System: I am more interested in characters and story than in system mechanics. As such, while this game uses a home-brewed system, the fiction will often triumph over mechanics. I will always go the path that makes for a better story.

This game is rated Mature.
