Welcome to Rise of Souls!
Hi, I'm Fluffy. I'm Kayle's rabbit companion and kind of a mascot for the site apparently. Anyway, let us get this Walk-Through over with, hm? Awesome..
Now, we have aspects of the site that are the three F's... We, of course, offer a friendly community where we welcome you with open arms. We love inviting new members into our family. We make it quite easy to come in and be a part of everything.
Fairness is another aspect to this site that we would like to offer. We grade every character application equally. Meaning, staff won't be able to have completely Overpowered characters while members can not. You can start with any type of character you want with any level of strength.
Here at Rise of Souls, we like to have a bit of fun! We have a Skype chat where everyone is welcome. We may have games in the future via Skype featuring our characters.
Chat Box Rules
Also, please note that characters can die. For example, If you are a Kishin Egg and you're on a mission to take on the entire DWMA including Death, there is basically no way you would survive that entire battle. Don't put your characters into stupid situations and then God Mod so that they live. Sorry but it can't happen...

RanksSome of you may notice the 'Rank' on your character Application. I'll explain all that here!
First, I would like to point out that high ranking characters are limited on the site. If you achieve an ML tier character, in order to create another one you will need to ask a member of staff for permission. This member of staff will then convene with at least three other members of staff, who will then discuss whether or not you will be allowed to have a second elite character. Note: Only one character can start at ML-S. The second after that will be capped at ML-A at the start, though you can upgrade them normally.
Meister & WeaponMeister and Weapon Ranks are as follows:
One Star Meister / D Class - These students are usually of this rank and are battle ready. They are basically the runt of the litter, the small fries of the whole body. People of this class are usually seen taking lower level missions and are still starting out on their partnership with their Demon Weapon.
Two Star Meister / C Class - Meisters of this class have become adequately competent combatants. They are more reliable fighting units that can take on harsher challenges for the DWMA. Level One missions are usually given to them and they have gotten a hold on a good relationship with their Demon Weapon. C Class Students are also able to attempt Level Two Missions.
Three Star Meister / B Class - The Honor Students. The students in the B Class are mainly focused on personal growth and development. They're able to take Level One and Two missions freely.
A Class - The elite out of the rest. These are the top dogs and are given the most important missions that would be considered suicidal to the lower ranks. People of this class can fight competently without their partners. Weapons in this class are usually Death Scythes or at least close to becoming one. Meister and Weapon in this class are skilled when it comes to fighting Solo as well as with their partners.
NOT Class - Individuals who attend DWMA as students make up 90% of the whole population. They lack actual power and attend the Academy to control such abilities to function normally in society. These are what you'd call your "average human". NOT students will not see any action like the EAT students because of this.
Witch / SorcererThe Grand One - This is the Witch or Sorcerer who has literally transcended and developed their powers one final step. They can stand against the strongest of any Meister and even Death himself. Their name is literally feared, or honored among the Witches, Sorcerers and even the other races. There can only be one that holds this title and they more then anyone have earned it. - NPC
Divine - Here's where Witches and Sorcerers are beginning to push past their limits and become even more powerful then before. They can stand their ground toe to toe with the Three Star Meister and Weapon teams and aren't to be taken likely. These are divine beings among the Witches and Sorcerers and may end up choosing followers of their own to train and make their own small little clicks. (Limit Four)
Prodigy - These are the magic users who have been pushed to their limits. Their powers basically complete. Most Witches and Sorcerers are lucky to get here but not uncommon, and most likely means they are under the teachings of someone ever more powerful then they are to have come this far. They're on par with Two Star Meister.
Gifted - By this time the magic user has developed their abilities and started to expand their growth developing or just learning their unique powers. They are extremely undeveloped and still can barely hold themselves in a real fight though can defend themselves off from mostly One Star Meister or NOT class students.
Dormant - Witches and Sorcerers who are too young to be effected by the Pull of Magic. They have no magical capabilities yet but are still able to learn as they grow.
MonstersMonsters can not use abilities outside of monster forms!
(Legion) Imperator - Also known simply as a General, an individual who holds this rank is viewed with the utmost respect and awe by members of the Monster race. It is no small feat to acquire this title, as one must demonstrate power equivalent to Lady Death and Xanthus in order to be seen as worthy of holding it. (Limit One)
(Legion) Legate - Otherwise known as Lieutenants, Monsters who hold this prestigious title are among the most feared and respected of their kind. Commanders within the Legion, these Monsters answer only to the Imperator himself and are typically hand-selected by him. (Limit One)
(Legion) Sentinel - The armed forces of the Monster race, the Legion is composed of those who are willing and able to fight for the continued well-being and prosperity of the race. The typical member of the Legion stands at the level of a Two Star Meister at the DWMA, though the precise level fluctuates between members. (Unlimited)
Monster Those who are not a part of the legion do not get ranked.
Kishin (Egg)Kishin Eggs currently hold no ranks.
HumansHumans currently hold no ranks.
Two staff members must approve your application before you can allocate your masteries and begin role-playing. Furthermore, if at any point a staff member deems your app needs adjusting before role-playing can continue, you may be subject to some minor changes.
Getting StartedIf you've never been on a role-play forum before, you should know that there is a posting order. Here is an example:
Character A makes a thread
If a role-player fails to post within two days, they can be skipped. If a week goes by without any activity on the thread, it will be at risk of being declared dead.
Well, first off, we ask you don't role-play a full team by yourself. It can get very boring and dull after a while if you're role playing by yourself. Missions would be difficult and it just...won't work out well for ya, lol.
To get a partner you need to role-play and meet new people. The more new people you meet, the more chances you have at finding someone without a partner who can work with your character. You can also arrange to partner up via chat box but you have to role play their meeting and decision to become partners. Keep in mind that not just anyone can pair up. It would be good to keep your character's fighting style and personality in mind. You wouldn't want to pair up a lone wolf with a prep who loves getting into anything involving crowds.
While some personality differences work, some don't. You really need to figure out who will help your character out the most. If you have two characters who work well together, bringing out each others strengths and able to cover any flaws, then that's the characters you want to be partners. It's not like you have to be a married couple or perfectly compatible but you just have to be able to work well together.
There are actually two ways you can get a partner:
The first one is rather self-explanatory. Role-playing with other people you gain friendships and develop close bonds with other characters. The stronger a friendship you gain with others the more likely you're going to be able to have a partnership with that character. However, not everyone is able to resonate and work together. This may apply to those of you who wish to have a one-time partnership: you'll have a 65% chance that you can't work well with someone and not everyone can be your 'partner' keep that in mind if you decide to be an Excalibur wannabe. That being said you don't have to keep the same partner forever.
Once you've found a partner, alert a Staff member and edit your character bio to say that you have a partner. It really helps. After a Staff member is notified they will give you a profile title field with the name of your partner.
On a side note, having two partners isn't rare or restricted, but it will have to be closely monitored. Too many double-partnered characters and it will have to be restricted.
If you have any questions about how to gain a partner, what to do when you get a partner, contact a Staff member.
Character DevelopmentI know some of you may want the laid back aspect of the site where there is no combat or action, am I right? Regardless, every character needs some kind of development. I encourage you to plot with other members, build relationships with other characters and improve your masteries.
Developing a character doesn't have to be a tedious task. If you role-play casually, you can still earn enough Death Bills to buy new skills or upgrade your masteries. If you increase your masteries enough times, your tier will go up as well!
Alternatively, you could give your Death Bills to a friend or move them between your characters depending on which one you want to improve. If you choose, you can also just horde Death Bills and do nothing with them but that's boring!
Death BillsDeath Bills are used to upgrade your character in various ways. This means Soul Resonances, Spells, Soul Wavelength Attacks and Items or Accessories! Every character can upgrade!
DEATH BILLS INFORMATION:
StoreThe Store has many fun features. This is where you can buy new abilities and spells as well as mastery upgrades. Taking part in lotteries and events may earn you various items from the Store. The misc items are to be used in the (S)Witch Caulderon. You give them to the Witch and she turns them into another item. You can keep giving her your items until you get one that is desirable.
TrainingSo, you’re technique was approved, and now you’re looking to use it, right? Well, time to train then!
Training a technique is simple: post a thread demonstrating clear effort towards the technique. That being said, you can type as much or as little as you think is necessary. These training post can consist of any number of things: practice using the technique, honing specific skills required for the technique, attempting to use the technique in a sparring match and on occasion, mental training (like meditation) can work as well.
Once you’ve completed your posts, link the thread in the Tag Box or PM a staff member to take a look at it. Upon confirmation that the thread is completed and has been approved, the skill will be added to your character's application. Then you're all set and ready to use your new technique at any time!
Mission & BulletinAs can be expected, not all the missions will have the same level of difficulty; some will be relatively easy while others will be insanely hard. This is not because the staff or the site favors certain races or people, but more because its an unfair world and if you wanted fairness, you shouldn't have attempted to interact with the rest of society.
In descending order of difficulty missions can range from:
