What does OOC and IC mean: Out Of Character and In Character, respectively.
What is metagaming and powergaming:
Metagaming is using knowledge your character would not have known to get an advantage in roleplay, and powergaming is, I believe, either abusing the roleplay system or doing things your character wouldn't be able to do. (I think it's the latter, ha ha).

Characters full name:
Amaedus Salvius Adrammelech (nick-named 'Aedus')
Although not necessarily evil, Amaedus is a mage of logic and intellect, thoroughly thinking things through before making any decision. Because of this, he is a strictly neutral character, not going out of his way to help others if it's at his expense, but not committing crime out of fear of punishment.
Amaedus was born in the glorious city of Issilia, ruled and protected by powerful orders of mages (magi) and knights. There was immense magical potential in him, so he was immediately put through a rigorous education of spellcasting. After specializing as a mage (mages are known for elemental magic and enchanting, wizards are known for potion-making and arcanic magic, and druids are known for their ability to transform and casting nature magic), he launched himself headfirst into his studies.
His curiosity began to grow about other magic, however. The more and more he learned about what he was able to do as a mage, the more curious he became about magic that stretched the limits of human potential. Fashioning himself as a perfectionist, he was one to push himself to the limit in even simple spells and enchanting, and he had a knack for experimenting and making new combinations of spells and magic. It was only a matter of time that the prospects of forbidden magic
would catch his attention.
Unable to locate any tomes about the application of dark magic, he began to experiment with utilizing darker forces in magic himself. Since magic clasified as 'dark magic' was strictly prohibited by the Twelve Ancient Magi of Issilia, this was done in secret, but he only preformed such magic with what he considered to be good intentions. He simply wanted to use tools that other spellcasters feared using to better himself, and find the ultimate spell: resurrection.
His parents had died soon after his birth, and as an orphan he had never gotten the chance to see what they looked like. So, he experimented with the darker forces involved with the animation of zombies and skeletons by capturing them and secretly transporting them to a laboratory-like study he made outside of the city. He would observe and determine the aspects of their dark aura for days, attempting to learn about their reanimation.
This constant exposure to their dark aura gave him a residual glow, invisible to the naked eye, but not to the magically-discerning eyes of the Twelve Ancient Magi. They learned of his dark experimentation, and he was exiled from Issilia, never to return again.
Heart-broken, he wandered the wilderness with a new purpose: revenge. He wanted to take revenge against the city he once so dearly loved for casting him out. In his mind, he was laboring for
the betterment of the city, creating spells and magic no other spellcasters had tried to use without being banished themselves. So, with his magic virtually stripped from him and with not even a wand to channel what little magic he had left, he began to build.
He began to do the unthinkable: He began to reconstruct the Four Elemental Towers of Issilia, which in the city had contained a vast deal of elemental energies.
Little did the other magi know that while he worked in and around the towers, he was privately taking notes to himself about their structure, about what combinations of runes and wards they were imbued with that gave them the greater output of elemental energy than the input of auric energy it took to activate them. Using only materials he excavated from the earth, and with a great deal of trial and error, he managed to construct his own Glass Tower of Issilia, harnessing the elements of air and water in one tower, and the Greystone Tower of Issilia, harnessing the elements of earth and fire in one tower.
The only thing he lacked was a power source, and in order to do that he would need to find one of the rarest minerals on the planet: diamond. When untouched diamond is found in the earth, and it is infused with pure gold, the natural small magical output of the precious gem is amplified by the conductivity of the diamond, producing what is known as an Emphonic Generator. The Emphonic Generator he constructed was not as large or as powerful as Issilia's, but it gave him enough power to activate the towers, which in turn restored his elemental powers to him.
He waged war on the city, besieging the great walls with summoned elementals and his own powerful magic. He did a great deal of destruction to the outer walls of the city, but the combined efforts of the magi of Issilia proved to simply be more that a match for him, even with all his ambition and anger. Thwarted, the city launched a counter-attack against him, effectively destroying the plagiarized towers and sending him running for his life.
Since then, he has elluded the watchful eyes of the knights and magi of Issilia, careful to hide his true identity from strangers. He seemed to have all but forgotten his resolve to take revenge against the city after his failure, and instead turned to a quieter, more secret life involving magical study and experimentation as a lone, wandering mage. After a year of staying quiet in the wilderness, he finally dared to seek out civilization again, tentatively searching for a home in the small kindom of bettramia...
Note: Since there are no mods for magic on this server, Amaedus' 'magic' will be chiefly pretend, using (for example) flint and steel to emulate fire spells, and buckets of water to emulate water spells. This should therefore not put him at any real advantage above other players
