So with the talk about schools, I'm curious - we didn't discuss age range. What was your original intent? Because I think Laurel is fluid enough to scale down from her set age, or stay where she is, or go wherever.
The biggest mistake I made was believing that if I cast a beautiful net, I’d catch only beautiful things.

If the character is a late teenager or older, then it'll work. Just expect that the younger the character is, the less respect they'll have.

Psychopath? Murderer? My friend, there is always room.

Reminder to everyone, I would like all character profiles in by the tenth, but I get it if you can't make the deadline. Just give me a heads up so I know your still in it. @JosephHazel2 since you're just hopping on this train, I'll give you some more time.

Almost done, just a couple quick questions. A) With the object the magician is attached to, does this mean just on their person or does the magic come from it? (i.e. a flame magician has a magic ring. Can she breathe fire or just shoot flames from the ring?)
B) Can my character have a basic, static character to work off of? And if so, do I need another character app or can I just add it in the character app for the main character?
sorry if these questions are dumb, I'm new to SBing

@Sheyren I'm really sorry but I'm going to have to back out of this one. I hope this doesn't disturb things too much. Good luck on the SB though! <3

I won't be able to get a CP up by today because of exams. I'll try to get mine up soon, but I'm not sure how soon that will be.

@JosephHazel2 a) Just on their person, on the surface. Like a necklace, not a pocket, for example.
b) For a character like that, you don't need another CP, at least in this SB. Of course, other SBs may say differently, but that's the rule here.
They aren't dumb questions... A lot of experienced SBers would ask those.

@EvangelineFire Okay. Don't worry, it doesn't really mess up the flow of things. Anyway, thank you for the luck!

@Mage Understood. Just please get it up by the twentieth, before we start. Good luck on midterms!

So, at least in my time zone, the tenth is essentially over. That means the CP deadline is up, but I'm aware that there are still some people who haven't submitted the CPs yet (@HazelGrace16 and @Mage, not trying to call you out, just getting your attention). I'm okay with that, just of course get it in by the twentieth, when we officially start.

(To you two, if either of you are making magician characters, I have noticed a lack of Flames and Earths. Hint, hint. You don't have to though, of course.)

If it's needed, I can transition Laurel from Ocean to Flames. I doubt her motif would work properly with Earth, though.

Okay, then I see that we have plenty of variety with magic types. Just disregard what I said. @Lumi Laurel can stay an Ocean. But thank you.
