In Charmed, the characters powers were often reflections of their personalities and quirks. Piper's neurosis and "needing more time” played off her ability to slow down molecules. Prue’s assertive personality and quick temper foreshadowed her telekinetic powers. Phoebe’s lack of ambition and purpose evoked a sense of irony with her power of premonitions.
Although these powers were reflective of the sisters as individuals, they did not choose them. These powers were merely their destiny. In order to stay true to this theme the members of this RPG do not get to choose their playable character’s powers or playable race. Instead, this is done by the Game Master and Administration through the non-playable characters Destiny, Fate or Fortune.
The Lawful Good are the designated "Protectors of the Innocent" who obey the Laws of Magic enforced by the Governors of Good Magic and written by The Authorities. The Neutral Good obey the Laws of Magic, but refuse to serve as a "Protector of the Innocent". The Chaotic Good will routinely and consistently act outside the Laws of Magic, if they believe it will benefit the Greater Good.
Although the Lawful Evil work in their own interest, they bow to the power of the Evil Authorities and the Laws ordained by them. The Neutral Evil are independent of the influence of the Evil Authorities, but do not challenge the established power for fear of reprisal. The Chaotic Evil wish to overthrow the established Evil Authorities and will use magic for personal gain regardless of the consequences.
Fortune decides the powers and race for characters at random. It’s a game of risk as fortune can be bad or good. Your character could be lawful or chaotic, good or evil, lower level or upper level, young or old, mortal or immortal, magical or non-magical ... any combination thereof!
The purpose of this creation format is to make things more interesting, to instill order, and to basically keep those damn "omnipotent" Mary Sues off our site. It's important to remember that, as in life, nothing is guaranteed when posting in The Nexus. Your character could have great fame and prestige within their chosen career, but absolutely no ties to the supernatural. Contrarily, the fates could determine that your character is at the bottom of the barrel when their chosen career is in concern, live in a crampy little apartment, but possess overwhelming power in terms of weilding mystical forces.
However, these Forces of Nature do recognize that there are some who are ultimately unsatisfied with their Fate or Destiny to such a degree that it affects their ability to enjoy the game. For those individuals, there is an option that is open to them. Prior to posting a character biography, any player may message John directly and request a new Nexus for their character!
Only those who received a Nexus from either Fate or Destiny are eligible as Fortune is meant to be a "luck of the draw" and cannot be overridden. In fact, this new Nexus will be given by Fortune and it will negate any previously requested Veto. And, of course, nothing is without a cost as the new Nexus could potentially entail a lower power level, more passive or restrictive powers, lower socioeconomic status, etc. Be warned, once this option is chosen it cannot be undone!
