No longer recruiting witches so ignore every mention of Witch in this. Everyone will be Espers. I'm sorry, I'm too lazy to edit it all out at this time.
For those writers who like “fighter-type” role plays, I bring you “Witch Hazel.” This role play is anime in theme, which takes place in a fictional city called, “Cauldron.” Expect many witch and magic themed words in this RP. Inspirations are Witch Hunter Robin and of course, anime fighting games like Guilty Gear, Blazblue, and Darkstalkers.
Before you read further into this, I am going to list forbidden character types. There will be no:
All characters will be 18 years old and over in the case that romance becomes a possibility. Now with that out of the way, let’s get into the story.
In the city of Cauldron, there exist a unique group of humans who have ESP (extrasensory perception) abilities. There are two types identified according to their morals. The good ESP users are called Espers. The bad ESP users are called Witches. Players will have the option to choose, which side they are on.
Espers are often quickly identified and taken in by the government’s covert organization, Séance. Espers are trained to use various weapons and taught special fighting techniques in order to capture Witches. Espers use special guns that neutralizes the powers of Witches by an alchemical liquid, which reverts them to an average human (Mundy) state. They are then imprisoned in a special prison for Witches called The Shadow Dome. Espers are given decent pay and benefits, and most importantly, they can live a somewhat normal life and use their powers for the good of mankind.
Witches are often autonomously driven. Some have allowed their powers to affect their mind with insanity. They can be selfish, greedy, and controlling. They abuse their powers to seek profit, revenge, or simply to cause destruction. Every now and then, Witches will form a Cult. Cults abduct humans and use them in dark rituals to summon entities not meant to exist in our world.
While the Espers and Witches wage war against one another, there is a greater threat skulking in the shadows.
Chapter One of Witch Hazel: The Witching Hour
Since this is anime, there can be many character types. However, not the ones banned above. You are only allowed one power, and you must have all of your character’s fighting abilities match that theme. For example, if you give your character Telekinesis, then all of his or her powers involve being able to move and halt objects with their mind. I will write down a big list of powers because I have seen players in the past come up with some ridiculous stuff, and I really don’t feel like dealing with that so please choose from the list below. If it is not in the list, then you cannot use it. Again, if it is not in the list, then you cannot use it. This isn’t first-come; first-serve. The more people who choose the same ability, then the more competition and rivals they will have.
For a detailed explanation of these powers, including their limitations see this website: here

All character sheets will be posted here in the recruitment thread. Only approved character sheets will be allowed to be posted in the Character Thread. You can take this CS and design it, however you want for those who are code-savvy. Be sure to use anime pictures or digital art. Avoid popular anime characters from popular anime. Nobody wants to see Goku, Ichigo, etc. There are enough original art pictures out there.
