★ Do NOT steal the artwork here. It is copyrighted to the original creators, the owners, and this shop.
★ No drama llamas allowed. If you have a beef with someone, take it to private messages. If you think the staff should be involved, private message one of us about it and we’ll see what we can do.

FAQ

Basic Pricing

★ FS Puella Magis will be 5K each. Raffle tickets cost 100 gold each. Auctions start at 5K with a min. increase of 1K until 15K and then a min. increase of 5K up until 100K and then a min. increase of 10K beyond. AB will vary.

Oh my goodness I want to be Madoka from the show!
★ Sorry, but that can't happen. All show Puella Magis are NPCs at this shop.

NPCs, dang. D; Can I use some of the colors or partial designs from characters from the anime?
★ Yes you can. : 3 But make sure it's okayed by the staff first.

Are these pets role playing required?
★ No, but if you want to reach the elder stages and obtain magical powers you'll need to role play them. I promise there are perks to role playing.

Do I need to have a Puella Magi to role play?
★ Nope! Feel free to make a civilian character, but they will not be able to fight and have magical abilities. But, maybe if you're active your civilian may become a Puella Magi one day. -.^

Familiars? : D
★ Yes, elemental familiars will come into play later on in this shop.

Metaplot?
★ Yup! : D (Although I'm not sure what yet...) xD

Crossovers with other shops?
★ Yes, I am interested in this but I don't know how or when.

Cosplays?
★ Eventually.

How many can I own?
★ We're going to max everyone out at 5 Puella Magis for now. In the future you'll be able to own more. You can have unlimited civilians.

Boys can't be Puella Magis!
★ Well actually, I think they can. The reason they weren't present in the show is because they didn't have strong enough emotions, as the girls could. I completely disagreed with this throughout the show, I feel like men and boys just show their emotions differently, but they're just as strong. So Puella Magi's will be able to be both male and female at this shop.

So what are we fighting then if not Witches?
★ In the original system, the curses and despair of the World’s population are absorbed by Witches and Familiars to grow more powerful. Now that witches do not exist anymore, these curses manifest in their own forms, and that’s the ‘big white things’ called demons. The job of Puella Magis are still exactly the same – to eliminate the curse and despair of this World. It’s just that now they fulfill their jobs by defeating these demons instead of Witches. - taken from x

Getting Started
★ Cool, I love the ideas you have going on, but how do I get started? Well, you can either wait to win a Soul Gem, order a commission, open a questing thread, OR create a civilian journal and RP your civilian. : D Check out Getting Started in the Guild

How Long Do Our RPs Need to Be to Be Counted?
★ Solo Rps are a minimum of 2 paragraphs with AT LEAST 250 words (that's approx. one page in Word). Sample
★ PRPs and ORPs need to have a minimum of at least one page of RPing in the guild with approx. a paragraph in each post. Before an RP can be counted each person needs to post at least 10 posts with at least a paragraph in each post. If you're having an in-thread RP or an IMing RP that's mostly dialogue try to have at least 25 things said by each person.

When in doubt...
★ Post here or send me a PM. : >

★ Story ★




Basic Story of Madoka Magica from Wikipedia - SPOILERS


★ In this world, there exist strange creatures who have the power to grant one wish to a chosen girl. However, in exchange, that girl must then become a magical girl and use her powers to fight against witches, evil creatures born from darkness that are responsible for murders and suicides.

★ In the city of Mitakihara, a schoolgirl named Madoka Kaname and her friend Sayaka Miki are approached by a familiar named Kyubey, who offers to grant each of them one wish in return for making each of them a magical girl. Another magical girl named Homura Akemi tries to prevent Madoka from making such a deal, while Kyubey urges Madoka by telling her she will become the most powerful magical girl. However, contrary to the glamorous notions one would expect, a magical girl finds herself dealing with death, isolation, loss of humanity, agony over the value of her wish, and existential crisis. Madoka, following her friends, soon sees the darker side of being a magical girl, and because of knowing the truth about being a magical girl, she questions if she should become one as well.

★ To read more and learn more check out the Wiki

The End of the Series and Epilogue - MORE SPOILERS

★ Madoka makes her final wish: "I wish to erase all witches from existence before they're even born. Every witch in the universe, from the past and the future, with my own hands". As promised by Kyubey her wish is granted and she becomes a goddess, breaking the Incubators' system at the same time. Madoka is seen traveling through space and time, healing defeated magical girls.

★ The consequence of her becoming a Magical Girl quickly follows the "rescue" of the other magical girls: due to her wish, the laws of nature have been altered, and the old world will be put to an end in order for a new one to take its place. Homura witnesses the Earth being swallowed in despair from the moon, where she also sees Madoka's soul gem, now the size of an asteroid, traveling through space.

★ The gigantic soul gem collapses into a Grief Seed and Madoka's new planet-sized Witch form is unleashed: However, true to her word, she erases her own Witch self from existence. The resulting paradox removes Madoka from the universe.

★ The cosmic sequence continues with Madoka losing her physical humanity to become a force of nature, detached from mankind; however, she is now suspended in interdimensional space, in contact with everyone and everything.

★ However, the concept of harvesting witches for energy would be more efficient than the new method: because there is still grief in the world, it manifests in the form of demons that the magical girls must fight, who upon defeat drop cube-shaped pieces much like Grief Seeds.

Now

★ Magical girls and boys are still needed to fight demons. Like before, to become a Puella Magi they must make a wish, and thus create a contract. Now, they make that contract the with Holy Mother Madoka. In exchange for their wish being granted they gain the abilities of a Puella Magi and fight the demons of the world. If they ever decide that they are too tired from fighting and stop collecting Grief Cubes, they will die.

User Image

Growth to next stage: 2 Solo RPs, 3 Other RPs (in thread or IMing logged or in the guild), 1 Event/Battle (5 further RPs in total + at least 1 Event/Battle) AND at least 3-6 months of activity total in the thread

Fourth Stage Evil - Corrupt

★ Sometimes something goes wrong in a Puella Magi's life and they become tainted and turn towards evil. When this happens, they become a Corrupt. This stage can only be obtained through RPing and breeding can occur to produce more "magical" and tainted Soul Gems (with alterations). Both male and female stages drawn from scratch.

★ Familiars ★



User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

Whispers of magic users have been around for centuries, not all of it true. Just as common, whispers of creatures that accompany these magic users have circulated for just as long. Familiars. Sometimes thought to be evil. Sometimes thought to be good. Sometimes a ghost. Sometimes an animal.

Thankfully for your magi, those whispers have some truth to them. Always in an animal form, a familiar might decide to make a contract with your magical girl or boy. Once done, the familiar will protect and aid your magi as they come into and learn how to wield their new powers.

The midhikana chikixyuu- an odd cross between a bunny and a rat. Steady or firm like the earth. Sure of what you want. These characteristics might draw this familiar to somebody.

The onajimi no kuuki- a cat like creature. Maybe you are flighty. Maybe you do not like to be tied down to anything, just wanting to go wherever the wind may take you like a leaf. Maybe these things might draw them to you.

The onajimi no mizu- a creature that could have been a sea horse. Cool. Collected. Calm like water on a summer day. These could be characteristics that attract this familiar.

The midhikana kasai shimasu- a small rodent like creature. Maybe you are brash. Maybe you have a quick temper. Or maybe you have something burning inside you. Perhaps this might attract this being.
