    The Elemental Academy: There are four divisions in the Elemental Academy as well as two sub divisions for each one. I will now commence to tell you about each one.

    Fire: Kamaki's school. The people here are usually very strong and consist of brute strength. The element of magic that someone is born with affect's there emotions and attitude.

    Sub divisions: Flame warriors usually fight with there bare hands. They can create fire out of anything, and shoot fire out of any part of there body. This sub-division is called Brawlers. Brawlers are the brute strength of the Flame division. The second division uses magical guns that are fueled by flame that the Magicians create. They are the strategic area of the Flame division. Kamaki is the Flame prodigy, and is capable of both.

    Earth: Eiji's school(Eiji is a character that is yet to be revealed). True brute strength, no matter what kind of person you are you will most likely be of little intelligence if you are an Earth Magician.

    Shape shifters can change the shape of there bodies and weapons, though only the most skilled can change the shape of there body. They can make there arms huge and change them into rock. The other form are the people known as Tunneler's or moles. They can dig at unnatural speeds and hide underground. They can also pick up chunks of the ground with ease.

    Air: Auro's school. The smartest of all divisions, they are usually the genuis' of the normal human world. They can be powerful, but they usually aren't. P.s. Auro is.

    Amulet magicians can use amulet's that grant them power. Auro is this and his giant sword is an amulet, though it doesn't seem like it. They are usually the powerful ones.

    Fan magicians use giant or normal fans that can create powerful winds. So far no character's can use this.

    Water: The sly sneaky ones. They are skilled in stealth, though not as much as Lightning.

    Shape shifters can't change the shape of there body, but are immune to most attacks. The exception is Lightning, as they can electrocute them.

    Wave master's can create wave's using staffs or such, and are extremely powerful. They are NOT stealthy.

    Lightning: The SUPER STEALTHY people. They usually use amulets and ranged weapons

    Crossbow's: They use crossbows that are engulfed in lightning. Fast, and hard for most to fight.
    Throwing knive users can throw there knives faster than most can see. Luckily they don't do much damage as they don't usually engulf them in lightning.

    Light Kasane is a special case, he uses a bow that uses arrows of lightning instead of arrows engulfed in lightning.


    Battle Mage Academy: The academy for battle mages. there are multiple types of battle mage sub-divisions.

    Sword users: They use katanas and there speed is nearly unmatched.
    Gun users: They use guns and there sniper skills are unmatched.
    Gunsword users: They use gunswords and are the generals of the Governmental army.
    Rune users: A more traditional type of magic, they write runes with special pens that make there weapons.

    Planetary Mage academy: the fakers who learn strange forms of Solar magic. They are the black mage's of this story. They have white rings around most of there weapon.

    Tamer Academy: They can summon demon's and magical monsters. They use staffs and scrolls.

    Staff users: use staffs.
    Scroll users: use scrolls.

    God's magic is the magic of god, a divine magic. It can heal people and kill people. It grants the user superior physicality, and extreme speed. The sign of God's magic is a pure white bird. Strongest known spell is called The Rapture. Can kill instantly or heal instantly, depending on how that person has live there lives.

    Solar magic: the magic of the universe, Solar casters can call down stars and planets from space. Strongest known spell is called Ragnarok, and can kill instantly or give slow painful death.

    Gonna post a new plot here for my one-shot manga that I'm gonna make for practice. Then I'm gonna go back to my previous one.

    Title: Sharp Sword
    This story is about an eighteen years old named Sodo who is the main character. His main goal is to become the strongest swordsmen in the world. Basically, he goes throughout the world searching for the 13 Legendary Swordsmen. In a world of swordsmen, it is considered a great honor to be one of the 13, and they are the rulers of the world. There is also a rumor that they answer to a swordsmen even stronger than the One, who is the highest ranked out of all of them. He is also said to be the strongest. There were originally 20, but a warrior that no one had seen killed all of them and stole there swords. It starts off with a boy announcing it while selling newspapers. A teenager walks by him with something similar to a shell on his back, with seven swords sticking out of it at different angles. He has one in a scabbard by his side. He is walking towards a castle with large high walls in a gate. He reaches the gate and a giant man with a HUGE sword stops him at the castle gates. The teenager puts his hand on the blade at his waste, and the giant falls, blood spurting from his torso. He walks through the gates, as an alarm goes off. Swordsmen flood the entrance and the courtyard in front of him and scream out a battle cry. They charge him, and as he is surrounded he pulls out the sword at his waste and the one directly behind his head and crosses them in an "X" in front of him. An instant later he is behind the crowd in front of him. Multiple people in the crowd are cut fatally. He spins around and says, "Dark Style: Double Wing." His swords have turned black. The army of swordsmen is scared, and a few try to run. He runs swords out, blades facing the crowd, and cuts through all of them, black streams following the tips of his blade. Anyone near him dies instantly. Soon he has demolished the whole crowd except one. He asks the man whom is not dead how he survived. The man tells him his name, and it turns out the man is the 19th greatest swordsman. The kid throws the sword on the ground in front of the man, saying that it was originally his, until he attempted to kill him. His sword then turns red. He calls it Blood Style. He runs at the man, then disapears. He recieves a cut on his back, as the kid was behind him. They then start clashing blades. The kid swings his sword horizontally at the man, coming from the right. The man blocks, and then the kid pulls out a sword from his left side, and cuts the man from right hip to left hip. He then says that he will make sure he is dead, and stabs him in the heart. He takes the sword back. He then cuts the door leading into the castle into quarters.

    (Will finish later.)

    Now THIS I could get into. First, I'm a sucker for swordfighting stories. Regardless, you've given yourself plenty of potential in this story. 13 Swordsmen, 7 dead ones whose pasts could be important, Sodo the main character, and this mysterious kid who may or may not be Sodo (I can't tell). All with, potentially, their own agenda. If you can design enough memorable characters, you're golden.

    You lost me when the man and kid fight. Whose sword was whose before who tried to kill who?

    You remember whenever the kid pulls out the sword that is straight, directly behind his head? Well that sword was originally the guy he fought who was strong. So he gave the sword back. Btw, it is, in fact Sodo. He gives him back the sword and decides him to fight him with it. He then kills him. Sodo is the "kid":, and the 13th strongest swordsmen in the world. His goal, is like a said, to become the strongest.

    EDIT: He is supposedly 14th strongest, but each swordsmen subordinates are stronger than the swordsmen ranked below there master.

    AH, pronouns! the sword was THE GUY? or the sword was the guy's sword beforehand. And the kid gives the guy the sword, then fights the guy using the sword? Not to be harsh, but stop using pronouns so much. "He he he he he he" does not make it easy to follow.

    very well...

    Here comes the next part, with minimal pronouns, or at least with the smallest amount needed.

    Sodo enters the castle, but the swordsmen in the castle are much stronger. Lets just say that Sodo was cut up and tied to a large wooden board that was hung from a tower in front of the whole town. It was to be his public execution. He was charged with hundreds of counts of murder, and killing of the swordsmen without doing a proper duel. The 13th strongest swordsmen floats into the air, and readies his blade. It is a orange blade with a black line that looks like a scar running through the middle. The 13th is dressed in mostly black, a tuxedo, with an orange tie. He points his sword to the sky and swings. The 13th would have killed him, but a black silouhuette flashes by and steals Sodo away. He also grabs the tortiose shell with the swords in it, as well as Sodo's special sword.

    Description of Sodo: Sodo has black hair with long bangs, and usually wears a hat, but not always. He usually wears a black sleeveless shirt and black slightly puffy pants. He has a tattoo on his left arm (yet to be decided) and white boots that go halfway up his calf. He has black eyes. Sodo's sword is made of gold, with a platinum hilt. It is very heavy so Sodo is muscled. It has many special qualities, yet to be revealed.
