Magic Guild OOC Thread Mk. III

Recommended Posts

M4qDZBc.png

 

What's this? Another OOC thread for the Magic Guild? What warrants yet another reboot?

 

Well, I assume many of you are familiar with Spellbound, WoE's resident association of magic ponies. What many of you may not know is that long ago, back in 2012 or so, the original plan was to make this organization more like an actual guild. At the time though, without the ability for users to write worldbuilding lore, we were forced to limit the scope of the group. And so it became more of social club; a hang-out for magically skilled ponies in WoE that lacked the gravitas of a true magic guild.

 

All of that is about to change! Thanks to new Lore written by yours truly, Spellbound will take the next step in its evolution. Not only will the Magic Guild take more of an increased role in community service, but it will now serve to promote the economic interests of all who practice magic for a living. At it's heart, the Magic Guild will remain the same group of friendly, magically gifted ponies it's always has been. But our fine little Guild is growing up... maturing.

 

For existing member OCs, perhaps the biggest change is that they'll now be ranked as either an Apprentice, Journeypony, or Master. This ranking system is based on how far an OC has advanced in their magic careers. Here are descriptions of each rank:

  • Apprentice: Is still in school, and has not yet found a job relying on magic proficiency. Don't have to pay dues.
  • Journeypony: Works as a paid employee in a job that requires magic proficiency, or is self-employed as a vagabond magic practitioner.
  • Master: Runs their own "brick-and-mortar" business (no wanderers please); enjoys the direct patronage of a royal, noble, or elected official; or is trusted by a credible institution or individual to teach magic to others. Masters have the right to hang a sign showing the Guild emblem (see the top of the page) outside their business or etc.

 

Concerning existing Spellbound member OCs, I'll let their roleplayers decide for themselves which rank their characters fall under. For new Guild members however, I'll determine their initial Guild rank based on that OC's app sheet and in-universe character development.

 

As always, the Magic Guild accepts all characters with skill or interest in magic; unicorn or otherwise. Stay tuned: I'm going to cook something special up to celebration our group's transition into a full-blown Guild. :D

Ice Storm will still be a part of the guild. As a solid member of EPIC, the owner of her own franchise, and quite potent in her own skill with the elemental arcanes of ice, I would say that Ice would be a master ice mage.

Pyro was a part of the old group, but he'd probably be an apprentice seeing as he goes to school. His brother is a guard, but he could be part of the guild too, seeing as he's an ice mage. dunno what group he'd fall under though.

 

Cryo

Since Cryo is a typical guard, I feel that Journeypony would be the best category for him. :)

I figured as much, but it was probably best to just leave that to you.

Geez. What would Pocket be? He's one of the original founders.

 

For the current Guild Hall..He did pull strings and work on transforming the old warehouse into something more guildy. Donating his old books and furniture..And getting others to add to their collection. 

 

Master Collector?

Master Moony-Smoocher?

 

He's an archaeologist and adventurer and thanks to Moony and some of the others has become a more well rounded spell-caster. He has not mastered teleportation, but soon he will!

Nocturne Wisp is the head of his own research lab and gives the occasional lecture/seminar...but, I think he'd be a journeypony. He's a specialist in the field of magical anomalies, but more on the research side rather than being a true expert yet. Any lectures he gives are usually more to share his research and findings than actual teachings. 

 

Plus, the guild is already heavily leaning towards masters. Need to even things out with the lower ranks~

Since he's been with the group as long as Moony has, I say Pocket has the position of Assistant Guild Master for Procurement. He, along with Moony and Duchess Belle, will pretty much comprise the Guild's upper leadership.

So, just throwing out a possible thread idea here. What would the interest be in running an EPIC/Magic Guild Co-op thread, or perhaps something in the sombra-verse. something where Equestria needs to call on the mages guild for assistance?

If it were up to me, I'd choose the EPIC/Magic Guild Co-op option. I'm not quite sure the Magic Guild would exist as a separate entity in a Sombra-verse. Most likely, all its members would be absorbed into the military.

That sounds extra-fancy! I could see Pocket rushing off to get business cards printed with that on it. "Assistant Guild Master for Procurement"

And I can imagine Razor saying something of the lines of "What does that even mean???" With a tone of sarcastic indignation. 

While Trekker would attempt to drag him off to see what can be procured.

Who said she would want a relationship? That's just silly talk. Who has time for relationships when you are off seeing the world? But human companions are nice. Chrome is great and all but he's not the best conversationalist (though they understand each other remarkably well)

Erm... I mean pony, yes pony. Trekker totally definitely didn't stumble upon a hidden mirror while breaking into the palace in the Crystal Empire. Nope, no way, no how.

Chipper Demise would like to apply for journeyman status within this guild!

 

Just as long as Chipper stays out of trouble..... :P

Fire Heart  is graduating from school, but has yet to start a profession (Whatever profession would involve a pony that can create fire!). She is very talented in her fire magic and has learned more control. She currently plans on becoming a teacher and share her experiences, but there may be something else that she can see herself doing. 

 

So I guess Apprentice, or Journeyman? She's kind of on the fence. :P

Rabi would probably be part of this. Not sure what category he'd fit into though. I'd hope master, but I dunno if his job would qualify him for that.

Since Rabi operates a business out of a physical property, I'll put him down as a Master. ^_^

Guess I should put Magnus here officially. Guess he’d be a Journeypony.
