Well, I'll be joining this merry cast if you'll have me. I'm thinking of making a white and/or green mage for this, though I do have a few questions.
1)If we focus on a single element, will we be allowed to make use of all of the "styles" of that element?
2)Should we make a list of spells, artifacts and creatures like counterfeitself did? if so are there any limits we should keep in mind?
3)Is summoning only restricted to small animals, or did you mean just mundane ones? If so would actually get a shot at having the bigger ones?

The more styles you use, the less you 'master' each of them.
You don't need to do that, but you can.
Summoning can go as far as Terastadon/Emrakul, but you have to lead up to it.

Got a few more questions for you.
1)Are other planes the same as in Magic or is this one of the points from which the rp diverges from the game?
2)When you say planewalker you are referring to the nigh-omnipotent transdimentional magic users, who are literally the stuff of legends, right?
3) Is the rp going start right when they're summoned or sometime after?
4)To see if I understand, starting out in the rp we'll only be allowed to summon small animals unless we specialize in greens summoning line?

There are the other planes, and they all do exist like in the game. But there's something preventing you from escaping this realm...
You do know the whole idea behind magic is that YOU are a planeswalker, right?
Slightly before. You may have a bit of backstory as to what you were doing when you were summoned.
Summoning just means you can summon larger creatures easier.

Is this dead already? Or is everyone just busy?

I'm thinking of using this sheet (once modded) as an ice mage for any RPs that come up. I like my dude's name.

Busy? Not really, just having difficulty on Appearance and history (always take the longest for me), I was mostly waiting on others to gauge on how I wanted to make his appearance. I did however copy counter's idea and put a list of spells he knows.

I'll start the IC in a bit, just so I can write the summoning. Braxio isn't on either side and exists only to mess with you all.

CS is finally done, except for maybe more spells later, but I think for now he has plenty of counterspells.

hello fellow planewalkers, is there room for one more to join the fold?

If so, then i've got a few questions.

1) Is it possible to create a character centered around a creature type rather than a color?

2) What is exactly implied in being an artificer? would you be able to create new wonders that have never been seen anywhere else? How much access to normal magic would i have, if i choose to be an artificer?
Mastery of magic is when telling time means telling time what to do.

Quickstrike: [gloating and tauntingly] So, what's a warrior without weapons, eh?
Dinobot: A warrior still! [Punches Quickstrike twice, then throws him so he lands on his head, knocking him out]

- Honor does not need to be won, but it must never be lost.

- The question that once haunted my being's been answered. The future is not fixed. My choices are my own. And yet... how ironic. For I now find that I have no choice at all. I am a warrior. Let the battle be joined.

There's always room for more, and even though I'm not the GM nor the co-gm I can give you some suggestions.

1) It wouldn't probably be recommended to go that route, but if you want to focus on certain creatures, have your person be multiple colors (example, Green/White/Red and make his emphasis Creature) That way you could summon the big creatures and still have the colors.

2) Mostly I think you just focus on artifact spells, so you really are colorless in mana. Granted there's pluses and minuses (Low summoning cost for most, however lack of Instants/Sorceries comes to mind), as for the second I don't have a clue, but I hope I helped you somewhat.

Also @Gare: Have you been busy lately, or why is there no improved/accepted list yet?

ok thanks for the heads up, cheesemore. However, i've got another set of questions.

1) how would spells that return targets to the hand work? do they literally return them to you?
2) How do the ones that return them to the deck work?

A prompt answer would be welcome so i finish working through the list of spells and artifacts that the character i'm planning on might have

For the first question, It would make sense for them to be brought back to the summoner's location, or negate it if it's a spell. Not sure how to question 2, to be honest.

Well then i have a suggestion. In the Onslaught cycle, i think, we were introduced to the nightmare summoners. They kept the beasts they had captured or created inside their own mindscape. Perhaps that is were everything lies until summoned

We really need a few more people to really get this off the ground. By the way, I'll be posting the history for my CS as I write it, but I'm going to start posting in the IC as soon as I make a intro post. I kept forgetting to do that stuff before...
