  • I rather like the One Piece suggestion. The Grand Line as a major Wyld-tainted stretch of Ocean could actually be kind of interesting. There are a lot of interesting characters that could fit in as Solar's, Wyld-touched, or Dragon-blooded characters as well.

    A treasure that sets out what they are going to do while they are establishing their characters and their relationships with the antagonists is a pretty interesting idea...and then once they have the treasure they will have enough 'things that have happened' that the story will perpetuate itself....

  • So what DOES a Paradigm have to be to meet your expectations? You have said over and over again that "It doesn't convince you" but what would? Because only having 'These are the things you can believe and none other" just seems to be killing the spirit of Mage just as much as putting this hypothetical magical girl into play.

    Also...I kind of think that a Magical Girl convention wouldn't be to bad for a Magical Girl. At those kind of things, much like some Mage's pretend to be Stage Magicians. As long as said magical girl kept her magic at such events small , she could...

  • What are you talking about? I didn't say people don't believe in Science, or their Paradigm. I just said that some people don't use mysticism as the basis for the Paradigm they cobble together without the tutoring of a Traditions or Technocracy mentor. I'm talking about the Orphan who Awakens and has no mentor, so cobbles together something that works for him. It might not draw on ancient mysticism, religion or even the paradigm of the Technocracy but it works for him....

  • There are a lot of Orphans that left to their own devices that basically cobbled something together that worked, and while some of those certainly drew on mysticism, not all of them did. I see no reason that a teenager girl who awakened couldn't arrive at the conclusion that she was a Magical Girl to explain why she can do these amazing things.

    Mage 20 argues that the reason that a belief that Mickey Mouse is god isn't workable is because beliefs in it by the mage tend to be rather shallow, and snap under pressure. However if there was somebody who sincerely believed in Disney Magic,...

  • I rather like that view Bluecho. I kind of see in some ways a mix between Prime(and in some ways verging into something that might be seen as akin to Primal Utility) to let this hypothetical Magical Girl literally invest themselves in their relationships with friends/rivals/romantic interests....

  • Hmm...if you are talking about 'Social Bonds as Magical Might', a good resource might be Pesona 3/4/5 video games where your character literally does that. You make a bond and strengthen it and you can derive more power from it, in the form of stronger Persona's....

  • No offence was taken or meant on my part. I do think the statements you made in that last post WOULD point to a Marauder.

    That said even most of those Statements could fit with a Paradim/Focus/Instrument as needed.

    That skimpy costume? It's magical Power Armour (or serves the same focus as an Enhancement).

    That strange magical Creature that follows her around? It's actually a high level Avatar.

    The Crazy Monsters / Evil Wizard? An Infernalsit, a Nephandi, Pentex Brach or something like the Sabbat could work here. (Though yes its stretching...

  • While Marauders are an obvious Solution, I think your kind of jumping the gun with the lack of Depth of the Magical Girl paradigm. Honestly a lot of them have pretty fleshed out origins and justifications of how magic/reality work. Certainly not all of them but there are more than a few who do seem to have backstories that justifies how and why they have these magical powers. Not all of them certainly, as there are certainly more than a few magical shows/manga that operate on 'handwaviium' but few of them could be justified under Mage with only minimum adjustments to bring them under something...

  • It strikes me that the 'cute magical companion that gives advice' could be made to work with a high Avatar Background.

    Bluecho: you raised a good point above when you were talking about Advanced tech. Often advanced tech fits rather well with some of the magical girls backstory. Sailor Mercury with her super advanced computer is an obvious one, but then you have 'lost artefacts', or the Maths Based Magic from Nanoha(Forget its actual name).

    Paradox is going to be the real issue unless 'a secret battle' is baked into the magical girl mythos. Sailor Moon for example obviously...
