The Day the World's Terror Fell
Nobody was sure how it was possible. Acnologia, the greatest and most horrific dragon to ever live, was dead. His ruin was smote upon a mountainside, or what had been a mountainside, that now was little more than a massive crater on the surface of the world. Somehow, through a strange combination of magic, luck, and pure willpower, a coalition of mages spearheaded by the notorious Guild called Fairy Tail had defeated the greatest threat the world had ever seen. Many lives were lost in the battle, but where there is death, there is also new life. A new age had begun for the land of Fiore; an age where men and women were free to pursue magic as they saw fit, free from the threat of corruption. An age that came to be called...
The Age of Guilds!
50 Years Have Passed...
However, evil can never truly be destroyed. Wherever there is light, shadows will appear. It wasn't long before Dark Magic began to resurface. Caught unawares, the world soon fell under a shade of fear. In an act of desperation, the Magic Council has authorized the creation of Hunter Guilds, specialized Mage Guilds that train and hone themselves to wage magical war upon any and all Dark Guilds that they find. These Guilds, while still carrying out items and things in the typical fashion that has come to be expected of Mage Guilds, are officially permitted to launch what are called Dark Raids on the places where Dark Mages are believed to be. As for you? Well, you my friend are going to be playing a member of a very specific Hunter Guild. A Guild that you may very well know, but never have you known it like this. A Guild known as...

Personality: (How do you behave? Don't need lots of details, just a good enough grasp)

Mage Rank: (Everybody starts at C-Rank. Don't worry, this will change soon)
Magic: (What kind of magic do you use? You can have up to 3, but remember that the more you have, the less powerful they each are)
Signature Spells: (List your notable spells here. At the start, you have 5. One thing to note, this does not mean you only have 5 abilities, it just means these are your iconic ones)
Overdrive: (Describe your Ace in the Hole attack, your big finisher, the big guns. You get my drift. Bear in mind that eventually you'll be able to make a new Overdrive and this one will be moved to Signature Spells, so plan ahead)
Inventory: (List any magical items you have here. You can start with 1 combat-based item and 2 non-combat items)

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is there a limit on the kinds of magic we can use?
A: Yes and no. Just about any kind you can think of is free game, but if I think it has too many dark or evil connotations I'll ask you to adjust it.
Q: So that means I can use Lost Magic like Ultear?
A: Depends on how it fits into your backstory. What, you didn't think you just got any magic you liked out of the blue did you?
Q: DARGON SLAYERZ?
A: I'm allowing it, but you'll be done 2nd Generation Style (ie Elemental Lacryma in your body, a la Luxus). This is how we're doing it on account of Mashima just now getting to the Dragons and their role in the plot as of writing this.
Q: What about Celestial Spirits?
A: You're perfectly allowed to use it, so long as you create your own Zodiac. I'm not letting anybody use the 12 Horoscope Keys, since they also seem to be pivotal in the plot right now.
Q: What are these Division things?
A: You'll find out soon enough. Like, literally, the first post in the In-Game Thread will cover this.
Q: So, these Overdrives...
A: Ah, yes! Overdrives are very simple; they're your massive attack spells that you can launch anytime you like. Your Dragon Force, your Rapid Ice Make, your Urano Metria. You get it. However, be warned; like the spells I just listed, Overdrives usually take some time to set up and use and can be very exhausting after you're done. Also, the more you spam it against one target, the less effective it becomes. Don't hesitate to use it, but don't just fire it willy-nilly either.
Q: Slice, how did you become so sexy?
A: That is a closely-guarded secret. I could tell you, but I'd have to kill you afterwards.
