__FAQ on Creating Magic and Abilities__

**Overview**: Here on FTRP quite a bit is allowed, from time manipulation to fire magic you can make a wide variety of concepts and abilities, however, there are a few things which aren’t allowed anymore or are restricted in applications. These amendments are hard rules which should be followed, unlike normal magic rules which can be adjusted with a unique ability or some creativity.

**Creative Freedom**: FTRP encourages creative freedom when it comes to magic creation. To preserve this creative freedom, we will not make amendments to every possible abuse. However, the staff team has the right to pull any application that is deemed abusable either alone or when combined with other abilities or spells on a case by case basis.

**EXP and Jewel increases**: Outside of a custom lineage, one cannot increase jewel rewards with their magic (golden lacrima’s, gold rush lineage etc. can still be used and stack with each other). Regardless of ability type, one cannot increase the EXP earned from a job with an ability, there are other avenues to do such as a team and guild bonus etc.

**Immunities**: One cannot make themselves 100% immune to *everything/anything*, you can be *resistant* to it, but you can’t be completely immune to effects or damage. The only exceptions to this are your own magic (such as being immune to your own spells hurting you). Otherwise please only put that you are resistant to something if you wish to try and decrease its effects.

**Counter Chains**: With the banning of Immunities, counters are going the way of the dodo too. You can have an ability which states “if the enemy hits me with X type of spell, Y will happen to it/them” but you cannot have an ability which states that “if the enemy hits me with X type of spell, Y happens, and X doesn’t affect me, and if Y can’t happen due to X having an ability preventing Y, Z happens, ignoring all their stuff.” This is considered a counter/counter chain and possession of one will result in the application being pulled.

**Auto Hits/Dodges**: Abilities which can affect the inside of a Player character or profiled NPC aren’t allowed, you cannot spawn your attacks inside of another, you can manifest them outside and have them enter of course, but you can’t just hit them from the inside without even touching them. You also may not automatically reflect damage to an or from an opponent. Similarly, you cannot auto-avoid an opponent's attacks that hit you. You can, however, absorb an attack with shield spells or armor, of course.

**Nullifying Magic**: You cannot have abilities which can nullify an entire magic, you could negate a single spell or effect at a time, with a spell or per MP cost, but you cannot shut down a person’s entire magic, equipment, abilities, or lineage. Not only is this concept not fun, but it also is one of the things which promoted immunities in the first place. The only exception to this is the Truth Lineage, (and only the Truth lineage, not custom lineages with Truths wording in it).

**Compounding Buffs**: Buff’s cannot increase other buff’s by the total amount, for instance, you can’t have a 200% increase that is then affected by a 50% increase to become 300%, it would be 250%.

**MP cost reductions**: MP cost reductions for anything that costs MP (spells, possibly unique abilities, etc.) cap out at 50%. One cannot decrease their base spell cost either.

**Damage Resistance**: Across all of your magics, abilities, and equipment, your Damage Resistance maxes out at 50% maximum. This applies to both physical and magical resistances respectfully.

**Rounding**: When calculating damages, healing, defenses, etc. as well as buffs and you get a decimal number in the end, we round down to the closest number.

**Spell and Physical damage in UA’s**: If a Unique ability deals damage (such as physical or magical) then that damage is the normal base for the characters rank (unless otherwise specified by the creator to be lower in rank). Melee and spell damage may not be combined in a UA or spell. Below are examples of this intention:

__Spell Damage in Unique Abilities__: If a member uses magic damage in a UA, they may deal user rank damage. For example, a D rank deals 40 HP damage with a spell. If they have a Unique Ability that deals magic damage, it may also deal 40 HP damage.

__Melee Damage in Unique Abilities__: Only when used in UAs, melee damage is increased to full spell rank damage, but it may be influenced by other abilities or spells that affect melee damage (buffs, debuffs, etc). Melee damage becoming full user rank spell damage is unique only to UAs and does not stack with their usual base melee damage. Additionally, one may not claim that their character deals UA melee damage when not using a UA.
