This RP is set in an alternate universe. It is not based on any books or movies.
The year is 1596. The White Tower is one of Six Towers that house students aged 16 and up. These students are capable of using magic, either because they have special gifts or because they are chosen by Deities. Those chosen by Deities are also called Riders. Riders are capable of a lot of magical feats but they are mostly known because of their companions, called Muto. They are seen as the protectors and helpers of the world. They are often called upon when there is a magical creature attack, if there are impending wars and conflicts to be resolved. Riders are also known as inventors and scholars, artists and healers. There are very many branches in which Riders can help make the world a better place.
Of course not every Rider is good by nature or anything of the sorts. They are still simply people and have their own personalities, they do not necessarily agree on how to handle things and infighting isn't unheard of. As well as some of them becoming entirely selfish and using their powers simply for their own good. The schools do try to steer their students towards doing good and trying to help others, but of course this isn't always achieved.
The world itself is a mixture of advanced in things such as electronics, science, and equality and on the other hand underdeveloped when it comes to weapons. This mostly because when it comes to wars and conflict magic is mostly used. The development in weapons/explosives is no further than gunpowder weapons. (So no handguns etc.) Most electronic development can be seen in the towns around the Towers. This mostly due to planesight and planetravel by Riders and other magic users. The Towers are connected to each other by a network.
White Tower and the surrounding town are located on the Tiwi Islands in Australia (as it is known on Earth 4), in this world the location is called White Tower Islands. Unlike the Islands on Earth 4, large, snow topped mountains can be found on these Islands. All of the Towers are governed by Riders and Other Magic Users, they have a central ruling body that don't answer to any of the other countries leaders.
The other Towers (from which students can of course transfer if this is something you want to do) are:
o The Fallen Tower - Yoroshima Island, Japan, Asia
o The Ivy Tower - Key West, USA, North America
o The Ivory Tower - Delta du Saloum National Park, Senegal, Africa
o The Red Tower - Texel, The Netherlands, Europe
o The Black Tower - Isle Isabella, Ecuador, South America
New students are usually found/discovered by Riders and/or people with Foresight. They can be found at any age really and are taken to one of the Towers if they are at least 16. There are special Riders and/or Foresight users assigned to this task. Riders are used because their Mutos can sense the Potential within a future Rider. Those with Foresight are used to find those with other Magic Abilities. These people are called Seekers and usually go out in groups of at least five people, max ten.
