The Magic the Gathering Hall
Image
"Welcome, friends, acquaintances, and fellow walkers, to my humble, magic addled plane! Mind my wyverns. While beautiful, they can and will bite if disrespected. It doesn't take much. Trust me."



This is a gathering hall for the trading card game, Magic: The Gathering, if you've gathered that from the title.

Also known simply as MTG, this game has the impressive title of the most played trading card game. It's not hard to catch on, once you have the basics down, but learning all of the skills and abilities can take awhile. MTG is based on a 5 color mana system, with multicolored, hybrids, and even colorless cards here and there. The mana colors are red(R), green(G), blue(U), white(W), and black(B). No, I don't fully know why they used U for blue when shorthanding it. On top of that, you have creatures, lands, artifacts, sorceries, instants, planeswalkers, tokens, and enchantments to pay attention to! There are a few guides online that can teach you how to play, if interested.

If anything at all, you can just play MTG just to play, but there is a LOT of depth in their stories, if you look. There are MANY planes across the multiverse, and we've only covered a few. While a few others were covered in phyrexian oil. They didn't last long. Anywho, it's a bit much for me to go in depth here, but the progression is interesting.

So, come in, have a drink, talk to us about your favorite or most disliked cards, what colors you most enjoy or relate to, the planeswalkers, Eldrazi, Phyrexians, any other of the baddies, the latest releases and theories, your BIG FAT deck(s), even your own fanwalkers and fancharacters.


RULES

ImageYou know the drill. Basic MS rules here. I'm sure we don't need to post these in full, yes?
ImageStay moderately on topic. You can stray a little bit, but remember to come back to MTG.
ImageLet's keep things civil. We all have our opinions of Jace, Mirrodin, Nicol Bolas, and so on. You can have opinions on things but don't hate others for having a different opinion.
ImageEnglish please. Sorry, but I only took one language class in high school and that was Latin. I got away with having mainly art classes all 4 years. I can't keep watch on ya in full otherwise. Sorry, friends.
ImageHave fun, ya nubs.

EVENTS AND RPS

If there are enough of us to want to do a thing, this is where you'll look! We can have tournaments using [url=https://cockatrice.github.io/]Cockatrice[url] (In different formats, if we can help it), or just our own events in general.

Planned Events



Also, do you have an Planeswalker / fan character / magi you'd be interested in RPing with?
Look no further, my friends. Submit your character(s) here, and the planes you'd be interested in RPing in, and when we decide to do an RP, you will be notified when something of your preference pops up. It can be on Magistream, but there are some RPs that go on Discord as well, which we can handle, or whichever preference you have. Be warned, these are typically para/ multi para / novella in nature.

ALL PLANES ARE WELCOME. Pick your favorite out of MTG. Use yours if you have one. You can use another games setting if you wish (Must be told from what game, though, if you rename the plane), and even Magistream is available. My original character was from Ravnica's Simic Combine, but after some thought I made her a magi from Magistream. Thought it'd be fun.
(I do plan to go through ALL the creatures to give them mana colors. Some will be more obvious than others. I'll have a link posted after this is completed.)



Character Name:
Appearance:

History:

Code: Select all
[b][color=#FF0000]C[/color]haracter Name[/b]:

[b][color=#FFFFFF]W[/color]here are they from?[/b]:
[b][i]A[/i]bilities[/b]:
[b][color=#808080]H[/color]istory[/b]:


Character name is self explanatory.
Owner would be you.
Appearance can be an image, a description, or both. When I place it in the list, I will change it back to a link for space saving purposes. Keep it sfw peeps.
As for 'where they are from', I'm looking for the Plane, and any other detail or places you can spare.
Abilities can be as varied as you'd like within reason. Don't have your characters be overpowered, at least, not without faults to offset them.
Your history at the least, should be brief, but try to include how they got their spark, if they are a planeswalker.
If there are any other details you would like to add, feel free to add more categories and fill them in accordingly.

If your character information changes, let me knooow!

Favorite Mana Colors: Red and Black
Favorite Plane: No idea!
Anything Else?: I am really stoked there is a MTG guild but you should be warned that I am as new as it comes to this game! My friends have promised to teach me and I have the cards but other than that I am like that super newbie! I hope that's okay. I literally know close to nothing except for a few stories I read. :woo: :bounce:

I'd really like to RP too as it could help me greatly with understanding this universe! So I don't fudge any lore I'll just be from Magistream, and learn as I go along if I am accepted :D .

And suddenly, you are my favorite Idiot around! Of course you're accepted. Welcome into the Guild! Oh please, how new you are doesn't matter. If you want to know more about the lore, my boyfriend and myself can help you out! But he knows much more than I do, I just got to get him to poke around on here some.

Seeing the colors you went for, and just... Taking a look at your page in general, you may be interested in Ravnica's plane, where the dual colored guilds take place. It's my favorite, mainly since I was started out on there, but still! You remind me of the Cult of Rakdos. They're aaaaaall about having fun. And torturing themselves and others. And having fun. You may get a kick out of that, methinks.

Yay! This will be a lot of fun! I'll be sure to ask questions when they come to mind. :D I took a look at the Ravnica and the Cult and it looks pretty great! I'll stick with a magi character until I become more familiar with the other planes :D

I play a lot of DnD so I'll base my character around something I'd make for one of my campaigns!
Character Name: Rickery
Owner: LaughingIdiot
Appearance: WIP: Will draw!
Mana Colors: Black (Minor) and Red (Major)
Where are they from?: Plane of Magistream.
Abilities: Rickery is a formidable fire magi capable of manipulating the element of flame effortlessly and a really bad practitioner of darker and more forbidden magic. Most think he practices the more sinister magics just to outrage people he meets! The extent of his dark abilities are fairly harmless, he can only resurrect small things and it is rare for his 'creations' to last more than a few minutes.
History: Rickery grew up in the streets of Triathe peddling 'miracle cures' to other street dwellers, and using his meager magical prowess to intimidate other merchants that attempt to corner his section of the market. Over time his ability to tackle the fire element became significant enough to warrant attention from less tolerant residents of Triathe. Since that time Rickery has seldom visited the place of his origins, and is usually seen travelling the roads between magi friendly cities with creatures and wares he had obtained through questionable dealings and adventures. He has no spark.

Never posted in an RP forum before, I hope this character is okay and that I posted in the right place! If allowed I'd love to have a side character, a creature companion perhaps? :bounce:

Username: CinnaminDraconna
Nickname(s): Cin
Favorite Mana Colors: Black & colorless
Favorite Plane: none
Anything Else?: Haven't actually played in years. I started playing with Revised and quit after Urza's Destiny was released (1994-99), because I couldn't afford to keep up with the sets any more. Still have all my cards, but I'd love to sell them.. just can't find anyone who can pay what they're worth, considering my collection goes all the way back to Beta and includes 7 of the 9. I played competitively for a couple of years, mostly in the old Arena format; Southeast Region, Northeast Alabama area.. #3 female/#5 state at my best. I competed in the old Type 2, Type 1.5 and Type 1. My favorite deck was called Cursed Black; based on Juzam Jinns and Cursed Scrolls.

Bry, you're a dork and I love you. <3 And thank you for taking the time to join and help out <3 You da bes.

Idiot! We don't have an Rp open JUST yet, this is more of a place to organize everyone for when we will plan one! Normal Magi are JUST fine, who knows, he could gain a spark later on? If you're eager to Rp, we can set one up! I was trying to plan a way to introduce my Khlori to the forums, so I have a small kind of an idea for a setting? It was at the Keep last time I checked on it a few days ago. I do REALLY enjoy the sound of Rickery, though. It's a cool name! He'll be powerful if he got some actual training, yeah?

And honestly, Go for it. The animal companion thing! Heck, you can have a few. I made a place in my Keep for Khlori's creatures, or at least onces I think she would have. If he would have a few critters, you're more than welcome to!
Gosh Black mana was never my thing.

Also, heya, Cin! Welcome to the Guild! Yeah, Magic is wicked pricey. I kinda wish I did get into it a few years sooner at least, but eh, I stopped getting cards for a long while. i only got some to continue my dragon binder. Honestly we may be able to help you find places to trade or sell your old cards, maybe? We do know a few people around.

Edit: Also I adore D&D, omg

No worries! I figured it would be awhile before an RP actually started up as those things take time, I just really wanted to block out a character haha. Thanks for answering so quickly! I'm still new to forum RP haha, I'm used to DnD.
