    Hi? Empty Hi?

    Post by ○Kaori on 25th March 2017, 10:33 am

    Hi, I'm reading over the rules but I have some questions if I can ask them here...

    - Why is it that character spells aren't able to exceede their rank?
    - I noticed there's different guilds, do they each have their own values or are they all pretty much the same and it doesn't actually matter which one I join?
    - Is it possible to be in no guild at all?
    - What's the advised range for level 1 spells?
    - How many abilities do we start with?
    - Do we start with any weapons, or do we have to earn those or buy them, or make them?
    - Do we have to RP as a level 1, or are we able to be stronger?
    - How do we level up to get better spells?
    - How do I get one of those fancy glows?
    - Are guns allowed?
    - Is there a limit to the amount of threads I can be in?

    Ummm... I think that's all for now, I might get more questions later.

    Character spells are not able to exceed their rank as more of a common sense thing if you understand what I mean. You don't see a low level mage running around in MMORPG casting spells that are like, level 25 say, while they're only level 14. Understand? It wouldn't logically make sense to be able to use spells that are above your own prowess.

    Every guild as their own values. You can read up on them in their individual boards, where a majority of their information can be found, or get a generalized idea of what they are like in this thread.

    Yes! It's possible to be in no guild at all. This is referred to as being Guildless. If you don't want to be in a guild, in your character app where it says "Guild:", simply put Guildless.

    The advised range for D-rank spells are around 15 meters minimum, but you can longer ranges depending on the drawbacks of the spell. Sometimes, you can get up to 20 meters if the moderator grading your application feels generous enough.

    At D-rank, you start out with 3 Unique Abilities. I suggest reading the Magic Rules

    Weapons-wise, you have to make your own weapons as well as buy them. You can buy them in the Armory, which is located in the Shops board, then write up their app in the Weapons registration board. Weak grade weapons, items, armors, and pets are free, meaning they cost nothing to buy them. You can upgrade these things when you get the right amount of jewels for the next grade up.

    Unfortunately, you have to rp as a D-rank mage, everyone does, but you can rank up through missions.

    You are able to rank up through missions, which is better explained in this thread.

    Glows in names can only be gotten through chatbox events or by purchasing VIP statuses with irl money. The VIP Shop is here.

    Yes, guns are allowed, simply make an app in the weapons board for one and place the thread link in the approval thread so a mod can grade it. ^.^

    There is no limit to socials you can be in; however, you can only be in 3 jobs at once, anymore, you will have to gain the quality badges from this thread.

    Welcome to the site, by the way, and if you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to hop in the site chat or the discord chat, or message anyone with a white name.

    I still don't really understand why spells can't exceede your rank if you're using buffs... I don't really plan on using buffs but I do think that the rule is very silly.

    I think I can do without the fancy glow, and everything else on the VIP shop... It's a bit sickening to find a place that's pay to win, an RP site none the less, but so long as I can RP and not require any of that trash in the shop I guess it's okay.

    Don't take this as an attack on you, I'm very thankful for you answering my questions. I just think the site owner has a couple screws loose with that P2W shop. More like Pay to Have Fun, but it's the same concept...

    With buffs, they can exceed their rank, but without buffs, they're not allowed to unless there are drawbacks to the mage when casting the spell; that results in being able to get more damage.

    The reason there is a VIP shop is because the owner doesn't always have the money to keep the site the way it is (no forumotion trademark, a customized url, etc). Because the owner of the site is also in college, which saps a lot of his money, so he has to look for others to help keep the site afloat. Think of it like a subscription for playing an MMORPG.

    It's actually very easy to get what everyone else has. Heck, I haven't spent a dime on the site, but here I am as a Guild Master with VIP status.

    Oh. That makes sense. I thought it was 100% solid, 'no exceding your rank' kind of thing, but being able to do it for a cost makes complete sense. Sorry for being dumb and misunderstanding. *sad face*

    New question: What are lineages? I looked at the stuff on the right and saw Lineage roll, but the thread doesn't exactly explain what it is.

    When it comes to the magic rules, look at them more as guidelines than solid rules. There there to help you balance your weapons and magic.

    Lineages are basically just added roleplay material. You can roll one to have one or you don't have to roll for one, it's your choice. But many of the lineages actually have "unique abilties" to themselves that give you special things. Like one lineage could give you an added buff strength while another lineage could let you have an additional pet. It depends on the 3 lineages you roll and you can read up on them in the Sacred Library board in their respective threads.

    I haven't spoken to many staff members, but they all seem really nice. The members are also helpful, which is refreshing after my past couple sites. The rules are mostly straight forward, some ambiguous areas aside. I'm very disappointed that the site's owner has a pay-to-enjoy system in place, but that's on her and her excess of greed- not on the site members.

    Overall, P2E system aside, the site seems really nice. If I can ask a small question though, what's the best missions to do to earn money or things I can sell for money? I'm not really concerned with equipment since all of it seems aimed at PvP with the convoluted damage system, but I'd like to get her a motorcycle. Having one would make a more logical reason as to why she can be on one end of the map one mission, and the other end in another.

    Seijin is not being greedy when it comes to the VIP shop. In fact, you don't even have to touch the VIP shop to do anything on the site. The only thing the VIP shop really oes is give you access to the God and Demon Slayer positions and allows you to get to H-rank, which is just a rank above SS-rank.

    I don't actually understand your opinion, but I do respect it. The two of us view it from different angles; you from the angle of someone who knows the background reasons behind it, me as someone who does not. I view it as greed because it locks player progression- which has measurable power- and the most powerful slayer types behind a paywall.

    I actually can't find any reasons why it's necessary. She can't argue that it's for the benefit of the site. She owns the domain, otherwise it'd say "fairytail-rp.forumotion" and if she needs graphics people I saw an entire sub-forum of them. The site's built, and judging by the population it's been around a while so there's no need for a professional coder. The only other reason I see is personal gain. If you can explain the need for the paywall in a way that justifies it I'll be very happy to revoke my statement, I'll even write an apology to the owner. And while I do understand we don't 'have' to spend money to use the site, we do have to pay money to access certain features of the setting we're RP'ing in.

    To understand it, you'd have to run a forumotion site, yourself, and look into the admin panel where all of the irl money stuff is located for the founder, like more memory for the site to hold threads, images, etc, and then the aesthetics like custom url and junk. People don't realize that free sites have a limited amount of memory and that it requires money from the founder to pay for more memory on the site so it doesn't run out and cause it to constantly crash and dependent on how the founder's own irl life is, he's not likely to always be able to pay wants needed per month to keep the site up and running, so he looks to the members for help to keep the site up that they love.

    Give me a couple hours while I write that apology.


    Questions:
    - What's a good set of missions for a D/C rank to run that can earn 100k so I can buy a motorcycle (that isn't slow)?
    - What are the technological limits of the setting?
    - This one's a bit of a magic question, but is this okay for an ability?
    "Being psychic to an extent, Kaori is naturally able to control objects with her mind, as well as see into the past by holding objects from that time period. While the latter isn't a particularly useful ability, it allows her to find truth where textbooks might spread lies."

    There's no real way to get 100k right away at D-rank, though C-rank missions tend to pay the best for lower rank, so I suggest going on C-ranks with another person to get the 100k. Just search through the C-rank jobs board in the legal and neutral sections since you're a legal mage; they have a range of jewels they give out that are in the thousands.

    There are no limits to the setting, just, you know, be within reason.

    The only thing with that ability is that it would need to be stated that OOC information from others apps, etc cannot be used, as it would be godmodding in a way, and the only way to actually use such things is if you have the Blessed by the Fourth Wall lineage.
