yeah... After watching a couple hours of old school american dubs of 90s anime I now wanna make a mash up of FMA, Digimon, and pokemon, but use none of their plots, but rather the elements they did best. FMA had amazing plot and atmosphere, digimon had a great cast to me (first gen), and pokemon had a pretty great world IMO.
Now what I have put together is the setting more or less. The world is heavily magic based. Everyone has access to magic, but you're skill is your social class. You're born at a certain power level, and it is very hard to grow stronger. So you can be born of two low class citizens, but due to your magic being so strong you could be in the house of lords. Theres another thing the govt. in the RP is a sort of skill based position. The strongest mages control things, but they are hold their position only until one better can take the position. Besides that it works like a senate each fiefdom having its own mage.
Now there are five types of mages. Despite your power level you only can have one type of magic. it is linked into you on a very deep level. Elemental (typically you'll only have access to one or two elements), pure arcane (this is basically just energy), enchanting (you can imbue magic into items), access (weakest magic out there its very general and basic spellings, but it has some spells like that of the others, but much weaker.), and restoration (healing and also the strengthening of life forms).
Everyone also gets a familair, but they are all magical animals like shade wolves and frost hawks. Basically they also get a type of magic which matches or is the opposite of yours. ((Fire mage could have a salamander ((fire lizard if you dont feel like using known magical creatures)) or an aqua ferret.))
the reason this is a mosh pit is because I want to try and throw around some ideas and get feedback. thanks.
