    After a world-changing event known as «Bloom of the Early Spring» occurred twenty two years ago, over half of the world's population, in particular children and those born after, began to develop talent and prowess that defy rational explanations.

    In order to secure peace and to maintain society at its current state, an international agreement to treat what was at the time only known as "Magic" as a field of knowledge, and for any possessor of such power, known as "Mages", to be treated with well-being in a way no different than any other people, was reached.

    Years passed, and people had accustomed themselves to the changes. Magic had become central to daily life, and there seems to be no better example than the rapid advancements that took place within the past decade. Among all the other countries, perhaps Japan would be exemplary. Being the place where it all began and continuing on to pioneer the progression that followed, it's no surprise that it was years ahead the rest in terms of development.

    One of the policies which the country is famous for, and which only three to four others had also applied, was the mandatory implementation of magic within the national curriculum. While the first thing that would likely come to one's mind would be of students trying to memorize a magical formula with a weary look in their face, or of all the mischief that could possibly be done with just a single spell, that was only one small part of the whole picture.

    There was no doubt that a great portion of it would be represented by the annual High School Mage Tournament. First held just ten years ago, many said that one would find the true essence of magic within the event long awaited by many. And unfortunately, that was indeed the case.

    While the tournament itself was—for the most part—nothing of a concern, the preparation goes back to the whole year before. Whatever their reason was, students all over the country was eager when it comes to that matter. In fact, a few students had already planned for it all the way back at the middle school. And from there on, the subject became of a far greater importance than ever.

    Such is the case in the Tokyo Magic Academy. Being the oldest magic institutions in the world and was still renowned internationally, it was only natural for it to accommodate plenty of students, and for each of them to compete to reach their best. In order to further motivate them, the students are categorized into classes based on their ranks. Since the criteria itself was rather loose by the dozens, there really are two "tiers" as defined by the students themselves, with the class A until C being the "High Tiers" and class D until F being the "Low Tiers". The default ranks are defined on the magical aptitude test taken during the start of semester, and later through personal matches and or tournaments.

    Though made with good intent, the desire for each students to be the best of the best ended up creating a divide among themselves. The High Tiers student were to be given benefits exclusive to them, while the Low Tiers were given extra assignment to improve. After all, it's possible for one to rise through the ranks with their own hard work alone, and what else would better motivate the students than that ? As soon as the idea came to be proposed by student council, the teachers promptly approve of it.

    They had little knowledge that reality itself doesn't always work like what they had in theory. The first problem would rather be obvious, that not all mages are born equal, with each of them having a unique "ability" at birth they inherited besides the ones they would learn later. And that was not taking account those who weren't even mages at all. Since some people developed their potential after the age they entered high school, it's not unheard of for people who lacked any ability to be accepted as the entrance examination were based on academic knowledge due to the former issue.

    The second one was what only few had seen coming. After a tense relation between some major global powers resulted in international conflict, the country responded by sending their forces to battlefields at the other side of the world. Though official reports deny of it and of any related acts, it was said that the low tiers students of some academies were trained in battle techniques and was (eventually) deployed as dispensable troops at the front-lines. With almost no evidence of such a case having ever happened, the veracity of it remained unknown.

    As the day grew ever closer to the tournament, what choices will you make in this world long-changed by magic ?

    «Rules»

    1. Be polite and fair to others. Chatroom and site rules apply here.
    2. Try to have more than one sentence per post. I didn't want to force you to make long and complicated posts, but instead to make others understand what you posted.
    3.Take your time to post, don't move the story too quickly so that others won't get left behind.
    4. Do not excessively side-track, such as wandering off to places with little to no reason or those your characters had no access to, adding things that make no sense within the story's context, etc.
    5. You can only have one character until later as the RP progressed. Once allowed, list all your characters NPC included within your first character's post. This is to ensure others will know who are they interacting with.
    6. This is not a medieval high fantasy RP. This set in what was roughly present-day but with major differences.
    7. We will begin at the morning of the first day of school. There will be no lesson that day but the magical aptitude test would take place at the time.
    8. Timeskip is allowed but should be discussed first. An automatic timeskip would occur each time a lesson begins unless there was to be an important event there.
    9. Posts that didn't fit with the above rules or which was essentially spam will be reported for deletion.

    Standing among rolling hills of grass spread out as far and wide as one's eye could reach, the youth set his sight upon a faint silhouette somewhere far across the horizon. Amidst vast expanses of woodlands and meadows, was a tower reaching high into the blue skies.

    Taking a deep breath of fresh morning air, he wished all that was as real as his mind had tricked him into believing it was. It was sad to say, but the story of heroes he had been immersed so deeply into, wasn't one of his own. Even with all the instruments people of the past could only dream of, the fact had never changed after all, that reality remained something people could only accept and live in.

    With a sigh of relief from having seen so much to have improved over the past few months, yet with unease slowly building up inside him as his mind reminded him of what awaited for the rest of the day, the young man took off the rather inelegant-looking headset, returning him back from the lively and vibrant world of fantasy, to the somber contrast of his room.

    Standing once more after having spent so long in front of the screen, he paused for a while as a feeling of ache surged into his back. A real ache, unmatched by even hundreds of bites and slashes of those pretend monsters he had slain last night.

    Taking some time to stand and stretch his arms and legs, the youth took a few steps before suddenly plopping on his bed. Taking a glance at the clock all the way on the opposite side of the room, he saw that it was around half an hour past midnight. Though a usual time for him to stay up until perhaps late morning, tomorrow was his first day of school. As much as he wanted to continue playing, he had learned firsthand that a ruined sleep schedule was perhaps the worst thing a student could've had run into.

    "Hmmm..Wait what?" She sighs and flops on bed "Why, it still doesn't work!" Her cat gracefully jumps on her bed and starts talking in her language (nor human language possibly sorry if spelt wrong)
