  • So after looking through the posts here and brainstorming myself I've come to the conclusion that a Magical Girl character would likely fit into these paradigms, practices, and instruments;

    Paradigm: It’s All Good – Have Faith!
    Practice: Chaos Magick, Faith, High Ritual Magick, Witchcraft
    Instruments: Blessings and curses, Dances and movement, Fashion, Mass media, Music, Prayers and invocations, Toys, Voice and vocalization, Wands and staves, Weapons

    I also just want to state I never really bought that Mage was an especially grimdark game. It kind of...

  • Yeah, I don't why a typical Magical Girl's paradigm of friendship is magic couldn't work. If wish magic done by children can work than anything is fair game.

So as long as its internally consistent anything goes, right?

    Yeah, when I thought about doing this concept I immediately thought that the Hemetics or the Verbena would probably fit the concept the best. A lot the Magical Girl genre is rather blatantly ripped off from western occultism, albeit given a much lighter touch. I think your right that a Magical Girl probably wouldn't fit all that snugly in either group, given that the scholarly Hemetics would likely scuff at the whole powered by friendship aspect and the Verbena tend to to put a lot of focus on blood and sex as part of their rituals.

    Magical Girls and Mage: the Ascension?

    Pretty nerdy question, but I wanted to have a character that possessed most of the conventions and trappings of the Japanese Magical Girl genre, which Tradition, Convention or Disparate do y'all think would best fit.

    For those not unfamiliar with the genre, typical Magical Girl themes and tropes are;
    - Main character is almost always a young girl
    - Only being able to do magic after going into colorful transformation sequence that gives the main character a sweet outfit
    - Having knowledgeable familiar/guide that usually takes the form of a cute animal or pushie...

  • I think the Witches from Puella Magi Madoka Magica are a great, and horrific, example of a Marauder and their reality bubbles.
