Persona- Burn On, Shining Souls!

"Heroes aren't gods! When we get punched, it hurts! When we eat stuff off the ground, we get diarrhea, or worse!.” ~ Pirihiko Ichimonji


- Arcana List -

When you create your sign-up you will no doubt notice a section labeled ‘Arcana’. “Now Zinc,” you may ask “what ‘da hellz is that fo’”? That is, my good man, the corresponding Arcana of your character and their Persona. Each Arcana has its own personality characteristics that are similar to the person who is being represented by it. You don’t have to fit all of the criteria, as most people will be very complex in this RP, but you want to chose the Arcana that fits your character the best using the list of the Arcana provided below. Just be careful. Only one character is allowed per Arcana.

Sadly, as this is a continuation of a previous RP, we don't have many spots open... at all. So if you want in, it's first come first serve, no reservations.

1: Tarot cards are now used for Evokers. They're completely reliable, and you don't have to pull a trigger. Fun times.

2: The Empress is now a banned Arcana as well.... Oooooooo, ominous.

3: This sign-up is only for filling in the last spot, and to start up the new chapter in this RP. There is a very slim chance for people to enter, but stay tuned just in case something opens up. There is only a two chance limit here as well, as in you have two chances to get your sign-up accepted or you can't come back. That goes for older players as well.

4: Over the TWO MONTH intermission, Wulfgard has finally taught you how to keep your Persona out for prolonged periods of time, instead of come out and do one spell then leave. They now effectively fight along side you if you so wish. This tires you out fast, but can be extremely powerful. If they get damaged, you tire out even fast.

5: Personae also offer utilities due to their new found ability to stay out for prolonged periods of time. They may offer certain things based on their natural build or a different use of their magic. Randy's Hellion allows easy transportation for one with it's chopper. However, don't get crazy. Izzy's Daedalus allows him to generate nearly infinite amounts of electricity throughout the Court. This is a special ability that the GM will use to make things easier for you. It does not mean you should have something as overpowered.

6: During the intermission, Wulfgard has requested that all Persona users move into the same dorm as the others. It makes you easier to defend, as well as gives me a way to let players out of the game without killing their characters.


From the Desk of "Ciara H. Wright, Writer Extraordinaire" On: The Plot of Persona: Overpowering Past

One week had passed since the original , and the Seven Samurai plus the Three Musketeers plus however many others of these people there were (they seem endless) were relishing the chance of a proper weekend, after the rather more action-packed events of the week before.

As well as this delightful bunch, five others were also unaware of what would befall them. Including your genial writer, me. Now, I was trying to avoid the school therapist for yet another session in which I was lectured, so I had decided to go hide in the bathroom- where I met one of this gang for the first proper time since the semester had begun, Miyuki Tachibana. We were in the same homeroom, but given that we mostly kept to our respective selves I guess we naturally wouldn't have talked much. I was perfectly civil and offered Miyuki some friendly fashion advice, just for the girl to start PMSing and throw a hissy fit with a tissue. Still, I totally got hold of her notebook, which is where I first learned of the Court- even if, at first, I totally thought that it was just her fiction.

One of the nutjobs, a girl named Sofiya, decided to sexually harass the Student Council President in the halls, and when he shrugged her off rather roughly, she felt a teensy weensy bit anxious, which goes to show that nobody can be truly happy and you should just grow up if you think that. She got chatting to a cheap street-corner hooker, the school's lecherous gym bunny and a blue-haired mutant freak. See, Bellow High is totally awesome! Go (whatever our school mascot is which I always forget because sports are pointless)!

Of course, this being a colorful school which is accepting of all mental states, there was yet another basketcase roaming the halls, Lace Condor, who promptly injured herself and had to be escorted by Sigmund Okonkwo to the pharmacist, where she also met the world's most attractive man Joshua Sands, who had fallen asleep in class and had promptly thwacked his head on the desk upon awakening. How adorable. I mean, pathetic. I wanted to fall asleep too, honestly, but I had self-control. Still, they all got the drugs they wanted and so everybody was happy or high on something who wanted to be.

After doing his daily duty of Assisting Those Of Little Mental Capacity, Sigmund went to the dorms and had a nice cup of tea, with his two manly friends, a midget and a snarker. Their adorable little tea party was quite the sight. I am sure that they felt like real men after their session. Perhaps I should ask them to play with the kindergartners. I'm sure that they would absolutely love that.

Later on, pretty much everyone was at the concert, with a few exceptions. I, being one of said exceptions, but also wishing to be an Ace Detective (scratch the wish, I AM an Ace Detective. And an Ace Everything.), decided to investigate the 'Court of Miracles'. As the Court began, five new members with 'the spark' entered for the first time- I was among them. Apparently, some also lost 'the spark,' but they're not important to my story.

In any case, a mysterious Shadow appeared- a Jester. which was essentially a massive troll. As in, the Internet sort. Not the real sort, although I guess it could look like that under the mask. It was 'kind' enough to warn the group of the new challengers approaching, to rip them to shreds. What a sweetie.

I got into a minor scuffle with one of the MANLY MEN from earlier (although sadly I did not have the prior information to hand- what a showstopper those details would have been!), and being an impossibly intelligent woman, easily floored the poor sap. Honestly. And then somebody else decided to take a potshot- and the possibility of my revenge upon him would be sweetened later on. Hee.

Still, another Shadow had made its appearance. The girl from earlier, Miyuki Tachibana- but then she promptly transformed into a horrifically large draconian monster. It was Miyuki's 'Shadow'. The thing, being some great avatar of justice blah blah blah death, decided that the best thing to do would be to chase me around and be all judgemental. Whatever. Everybody else did their thing as regards to attacking, but that mental patient also decided that the best thing to do would be to start throwing Molotovs around... How has she not been sectioned yet?

Still, in a surprising act, Miyuki jumped in front of me and took the attack by summoning her Persona, Astraea, which weathered the blow. It was very valiant, in a 'knight-in-shining-armour' sort of way. This caused me to temporarily re-evaluate my priorities... before realising that one-off situations were just one-offs. It's impossible for any one person to be consistently so selfless, over and over again. I think I'd have found someone willing to do that for me by now, honestly.

Still, that Wulfgard dude took the finisher. In the words of video-gamers, what a 'kill-stealer!' I mean, everyone did their bit. But Miyuki deserved to be the one to put that thing down.

Afterwards, things went a little crazy. The 'civilians' were asked to introduce themselves, and one of them must have made a misstep or something because then that gym bunny went berserk. I think he was on his period. Still, Wulfgard came to the rescue and saved the midget from being squashed to pieces, thoroughly embarrassing the gym bunny in the process. God, he looked hot when he threw that punch though...

Meanwhile, Randy was getting a crash-course in his 'mind space' (and I'd like to know how big that was, ahoohoohoo) from the Jester, which gave him a set of envelopes about... us. To be continued? I hope very much so. I can't stand not knowing things! Still, when he awoke the next stage began, and wasn't it a doozy.

It was like... a magical Saw rip-off. Immediately, the Shadow in charge got rid of a 'spare,' some poor guy that I didn't know. We were all faced with a choice- there was a person on our screens. A person only we could save. We were all separated, with no clue as to what was going on... I saw Miyuki on my screen. I'm not sure who saw who on the others. Still, there was a choice- if I stabbed myself, Miyuki would walk free. If I didn't stab myself... I would walk free and Miyuki would die, in the same way as the boy did. It was frankly terrifying, although I'd kill anyone who said I was scared. Really.

I couldn't go through with it, but I didn't appreciate being bossed around and I wanted the monster to know the score, so I yelled at the screen for a little while... at which point, something materialised behind me. The corpse of the boy from earlier. In shock, I kinda... stabbed his eye out, before vomiting into the corner. Luckily, nobody found out about that... otherwise, I would have kicked their head in. Still, after seeing all the brain fluid and blood on the blade I couldn't stomach even looking at the knife, and I couldn't go through with it. The others of the 'new people' who had also been dragged into the Court couldn't stab themselves either. On the other hand, the old guard were valiant enough to go through with it.

At which point, everything went a bit... weird. I wasn't really capable of tracking what happened next, and my mind was in a dreadful state, but it all ended with that snarky rebellious red-headed MANLY MAN speaking with the voice of a little girl in a way that would totally freak out even the sanest of minds. And somehow, a combination of everything that had been thrown at it killed the Shadow. I think that that Jester fellow set us free...

The next day was Saturday, and I soon found myself sitting over a nice warm cup of hot chocolate with one of the boys from the previous night, Joshua Sands. Now, Joshua didn't actually appear to recognise me all too well (despite the fact that we were in the same homeroom, I mean, dear lord), and I decided to use the situation to my advantage to gain some background knowledge. One thing led to another, and before I knew it I was asking him very sweetly to pick out some apparel for me. He found this most embarrassing, even more so when he was caught in the act by none other than Miyuki Tachibana. Luckily, I came to his rescue before he could be struck down by the wrathful vengeance of justice, and we spent an enjoyable morning looking around the mall, and they were more than willing to carry my shopping bags. A girl has essentials, you know?

Still, before then Miyuki herself had had a little bit of an adventure. She saw a boy in the candy shop- the same boy she had royally PMSed at on Friday afternoon, Izzy Simone. He's terrified of Miyuki- which is laugh out loud HILARIOUS. He should be scared of me. But he hasn't met me yet... perhaps he'll find a level beyond terror? Still, he gave her a note, as part of a 'Challenge of Manliness' or whatever, set up by that loudmouth Randy. Boy, this would come back to bite him in the butt later.

The nutbar Sofiya, having decided to elevate her levels of offense, was spending time with womens' edition 'gentleman's select literature' in video form! I think I should watch some with her sometimes, to help her comprehend it all. Still, she managed to drag her eyes from the glory that is the human body long enough to run off to the mall for a delightful shopping trip with some pals. Likewise, the larger group of boys had also decided to go off to look at some hot new clothes- Snow promised his agent or guardian or whoever (I can't keep track of all these satellite characters, seriously) that he wasn't a raging Satanist, and they seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Actually, pretty much everyone was at the mall. Quarterman is so backwards if there's only one place for teenagers to gather... seriously.

At this time, Wulfgard was telling Randy about his past. And how dreadful it was... but the Court has started up again! Seriously, I hope Wulfgard goes more in-depth with this stuff... I wonder if there were any girls like me back then? But less attractive, obviously.

Then, we went to a little tête-a-tête in the Bellow High Stadium. I was sadly separated from my two new servants, and was instead forced to spend time in the company of some dreadful people whose names I promptly forgot. I was also insulted by the 'teacher,' who is totally a pharmacist. I mean, the school pharmacist! Leading some motley crew against the forces of darkness every night without fail. You couldn't make this stuff up, how ridiculous. I mean, I had to come back after that. How could these people manage without me? They'd all get themselves killed in their intense stupidity. I mean, Joshua came along to ask and I couldn't really say no as... Whatever.

Everything went swimmingly with everyone else's training sessions, until Miyuki went and murdered her little date with a blunt instrument. Or attempted murder. A girl after my own heart. She was so cute about the whole thing, and you could see that she cared, sweet girl. She totally has a massive crush on him, and I need to set that up, pronto.

At night, the Court of 'Miracles' once again arrived. The five of us new recruits were required to summon our Personas- mine was the beautifully fierce fox, the Kitsune. Russell Wilton, the immensely irritating hobbit, brought forth Eros, some happy-sappy love god or another. Halberd, he of dreary realities, brought forth Scathach, one of the most revered warrior women and also someone who Halberd totally does not deserve. The blue-haired cheerleader, Clarise, hailed Konohana Sakuya, whom surprisingly enough for a Japanese goddess looked way too much like a cheerleader. Finally, the alien from another planet, Lace Condor, had Saturnus, son of Gaia. She promptly attacked it, which honestly went against the whole point of the exercise but whatever. I'm not her mother (thank the lord) or her master... yet. Moving on!

At the same time as this was going on, Randy and Izzy were having a little bit of a confrontation- Izzy, see, had grown a backbone. He didn't want to be Randy's little apprentice MANLY MAN OF MANLINESS any more, and he didn't want Randy to act like his older brother. Of course, he didn't say it quite so eloquently. He may have even swore. Disgraceful. Miyuki'll keep that in line. Still, this made Randy a teensy bit upset, as Izzy's older brother was to him as he is to Izzy now, if you get what I'm saying? So he got a teensy weensy bit... drunk. And when he got drunk, he felt a bit sad, poor dear. Of course, his flatchested pudgy reporter friend was at hand to give him a boost. Bless her. Poor thing, eating all those lollipops and getting so... rotund. I, on the other hand, can eat many kilograms of chocolate with barely any difference in weight at all. My metabolism is the work of the gods.

Promptly after this delightfully cosy session, we got trapped in a techno disco brothel, engineered by none other than Shadow JP. (JP, may we remind ourselves, is a detestably lecherous human being with absolutely no redeeming qualities, so it was of no surprise to your stunningly attractive writer that his Shadow was a pimp) The members of our group were immediately set upon by his detestable 'Shad-hos,' Shadows which had taken the form of strippers in ridiculously short miniskirts, and with attacks that would make a trooper blush. They were formidable adversaries, but luckily we were matched one-to-one, aside from our 'sensei' who got two for the price of one in some sort of threesome battle royale. Of course, the dazzling writer would like to point out at this point that she did fabulously. Others had varying techniques, from scurrying away as fast as their stubby legs could carry them, to attacking head on with powerful blows. Nobody fell against their opponent.

Meanwhile, JP was selected for a special cagefight with his Shadow, and the idiot decided to go for a macho show of bravado, throwing away his weapons. Apparently, his Persona can take control of his body or something just as daft, so he felt less pain than usual from the blows. Still, his Shadow took some strange version of 'pity' upon him... if one could seriously call it that. He could take up his weapons, but risk the life of another... or leave his weapons, and keep the others safe.

The tool, in a decision that he would finally regret, went for his weapons, leaving that hooker in the leather to be zapped against the walls of the cage by even more of the shad-hos, all of which disappeared after their job was done. Finally, his work completed, the Shadow JP turned his weapon on himself and committed suicide, leaving the real idiot to completely and utterly fall apart, as the consequences of his actions caught up with him.

The rest of the little gang gathered around Theresa, to hypocritically weep as if they had known her their whole lives, as if she were gone forever etcetera etcetera. There was no hope left for her- the Apathy Syndrome had rendered her a vegetable. She wasn't dead gone forever dead, but people were acting as if she was- and honestly, they may have had a point. I guess I'm hard-hearted if I say I didn't really care, but so what? I didn't really care for her one jot. Either way, she would have been a useless body.

Meanwhile, Randy and Liza were off far away, looking for Izzy. Randy, in a surprising move, summoned yet another Persona (lucky bastard), a being known as Hellion, riding a motorcycle (clearly a Ghost Rider rip-off without the skulls) of the Chariot Arcana. I thought that Vigilante was Fool, but perhaps Randy has a deeper power that none of us know about yet? None of us even know about our own Arcana yet! I guess that's still to come...

And of course, we can't forget that Student Council President, Haitani, and that girl he has in his apartment, Assua. I think that she has Apathy Syndrome. His Persona, Ophidian, appeared to him on the same night as I summoned mine... and I'm not getting a good vibe off of it. I just hope he's not our enemy, as he seems dangerous... Like he'd do anything. Anything at all. And our worst foes in this would not be Shadows, but another human being.

Miyuki's Journal - Day 12

Friday - After School

Randy was sporting a cast today. He claimed it was because of some sport or something. (Note: look up "Extreme Red Rover") I wouldn't put it past him, but it was probably a result of the Court. He was practically bragging about it, like a war scar or something. One way of coping I guess.

A guy named Shinai stopped by class today. Apparently he's our student council president or something. He's kinda creepy.

*pic of Chibi Shinai with a dark aura*

Testa's class was the same as always. He was going on about some adventure story from Russia or something. He talks too fast sometimes. I have a hard time understanding all of it, but I don't want to ask him to talk slower. I must be the only one in class with that issue. No need to make everyone else wait. Still, when Testa's busy talking is the best time of the whole school day to doze off. I'm used to napping in class, but its even more welcome with the court going on each night.

Speaking of the court, Joshua fell asleep in class today as well. He smacked his head pretty hard on his desk. I felt sorry for him, so I passed him a note. Doing this court thing is hard on all of us it seems. Some more so than others. I never did get to see if my note helped him that day or not. Someone ran right into me and spilled their drink on me at the end of class. At least it was just water, but it was still embarrassing. ;_;

What made it worse was what happened next. If I had know then how bad Friday was going to be, I would have probably just skipped. (-_-)

I ran into the restroom to dry out my hoodie and my notebook (this notebook actually. Still has some creases along the edges of the page.) That was my initial run-in with the school's Ice Queen, Ciara H. Wright. I tried to just stay quiet and stay out of her way, but she must have been in a bad mood or something because she still snapped at me. Even insulted my clothes and taunted me with chocolate. Who taunts people with chocolate? Its like she thought she really was a queen or something.

*pic of Chibi Ciara laughing evilly (complete with fangs) with a huge crown on her head and a chocolate bar in her hand.*

I stormed out of there, already in a bad mood from the water accident. Didn't find out till later that I had forgotten my notebook. (So this isn't wasn't actually written on Friday, even though I keep saying "today". I didn't get my notebook back until later. Luckily, Ciara was actually kind enough to return it to me later on. Just shows you can't judge a person by their cover.) But, my bad luck continued that day and I ended up running right into Izzy Simone in awkward fashion. (Did I do something to deserve bad karma? ;_; ) I think I scared him, even if I didn't mean to, and just decided not to press my luck and went home for the day.

Turns out I missed some interesting events. Sofiya apparently made a scene in the halls when she asked Shinai (Mr. creepy from earlier.) to "bake bunnies" with her. I like Sofiya, but does she seriously eat bunnies? ;_; I know she's a bit oddballed, but even so. Bunnies are just so cute and cuddly... How could you eat them? (._.) Maybe that's normal where's she's from... I shouldn't judge.

*pic of bunny running from a knife with arms and legs*

Some of the guys even had a tea party in the dorms. Mana, Halberd, and Sigmund all made tea and stuff. I should get a room in the dorms, then maybe I could join in. I can make tea. Even snacks. But would they like them? ... On second thought, maybe they'd just invite me if that was the case. I'll just make my own tea.

*pic of Alice and Hua Po sharing tea* (Miyuki's Note: Too bad I haven't seen Halberd's persona yet. I feel bad leaving him out of the drawing. Maybe I'll add him in later.)

*pic of Scathach watching the others from the shadows, also with tea*

I went to the concert that night with Sofiya. It was a little embarrassing being right up in the front row, but it was fun. Sofiya was really getting into the song, and though I didn't really know it at the time, Izzy was part of the band, though he mostly did backstage stuff. Randy, Snow and Randy's two friends (who are those two guys anyway?) did a great job with the show. It was my first concert, but I enjoyed it.

Friday - The Court

What a shock that Court was. I really must have pissed off some deity or something because my karma today was terrible. ;_;

A new Shadow (at least, I think he was a Shadow) appeared. He called himself "The Jester", and he was all mysterious and whatnot and made sure to confuse us.

But that wasn't all. The big Shadow for the night was my own! ('o') It was an evil me! Like, if I was obsessed with punishing injustice or something. It took the form of a huge dragon like creature, which was kinda scary. I mean, that thing came from me. What I had in my heart created that monster. That's kind of a sobering thought. Especially since it tried to kill my friends. (._.) It homed in on Ciara, showing that my letting my anger slip earlier that afternoon only served to fuel the Shadow me. But thanks to Astraea's new ability, I was able to save her! I still don't know how it happened, or where the strength came from, but I managed to face up to my Shadow and keep it from hurting anyone. I was almost too late to help JP though, but at least he was okay.

*pic of Shadow Miyuki, one sword raised. A word bubble reads "Evil Justice!"*

And then Wulfgard-sensei swooped in and took out the Shadow. He was cool the way he just went in and faced it down, but something about it felt odd. Like, I was the one who was supposed to kill it. It still nags at me from time to time. He stopped by to talk to me afterwards, but even so, it still feels like something is missing from that whole situation.

JP was injured, but he made it out okay. We had a few team issues (that Wulgard had to settle with his fists.) but even those worked out eventually. And Randy had some sort of lesson from the Jester via a dream, in which he was given some mysterious envelopes. There were some loose ends and a few nagging things, but it seemed that we would make it through this court without losing anyone like we did last Friday. We were wrong.

Everything went black. It got cold. I couldn't move. For a moment, I thought that maybe I had died in the Court after all. Then everything came back, and I found myself chained to a wall, unable to move. The darkness had melted away to reveal some sort of torture chamber made of black stone. We found ourselves looking at a second Shadow Self, this one of Izzy. In contrast to my own, his Shadow looked relatively normal, but with glowing eyes and a distorted voice. It was cruel and sadistic, forcing us to play a game of life and death. And just to prove that he was in control here, he killed one of our group, Kent (who I never got to know, and now never will.) just because he didn't fit into the game. Half of us were chained to the wall, the other half isolated in their own little rooms. Izzy's Shadow set up his game, each of the others would see someone's face on a screen. If they stabbed themselves in the stomach with a knife, that person would be spared. But if they didn't, the person on their screen, one of the ones on the wall, would be killed instead.

Several of the others all made the choice to stab themselves. A few simply hesitated, unable to go through with it or just unwilling to make a choice. Ciara got angry. In the end, the game was played out, but before Shadow Izzy could kill those who were deemed for death, that Jester guy showed back up and freed us from our chains. Things got a little crazy after that, and I'm fairly certain I went a little berserk. I don't remember much after that to be honest, it was all sorta like a blur. The last thing I remember was stumbling home sometime later on that night, after the court.

*pic of Chibi Shadow Izzy shooting lightning from his hands*

Notes on The Court of Miracles: Shadow Selves seem more powerful than other Shadows. Some even seem able to alter the landscape of the Court itself. If they really are born from the darkness in our hearts, are their tactics and abilities a result of how we our as well? And if our Personae come from ourselves too, then are our Shadow Selves like Anti-Personae? Or are our Personae like Anti-Shadows? So many things to ponder...

Miyuki's Journal - Day 13

Saturday - Daytime

Saturday was a nice break from all that had happened in the court the night before.

It seemed like almost everyone in our group was at the mall that morning. I'm sure I saw Snow and a few others doing some shopping on one of the lower levels, and Lace (a girl in real need of a psychiatrist) was causing some kind of ruckus on the 2nd floor. I didn't spend too much time watching them though. The candy shop was calling my name. (^_^)

*doodles of various sorts of candy dot the page*

While there though, I had another run-in with Izzy. Apparently, Randy had put him up to handing me a letter that looked an awful lot like a confession of love. It was all just a test for him though (which was both relieving and a bit disappointing) but I think it may have done more harm than good in the long run.

After that little adventure, I took a trip up to the top floor department store where I found Joshua doing some shopping in the lingerie aisle. After a brief... misunderstanding, I found out that he had actually met Ciara at a coffee shop earlier, and she had set him up to it. At first, I thought he was just trying to get out of it. Then I thought that maybe Ciara had actually done it as a prank, and was just going to leave him there. (He looked so sad, it was hard to keep suspecting him.) But Ciara surprised me (and possibly him) by actually showing back up. I ended up getting dragged along with them, but I had fun. Ciara is a bit cold on the outside, but she's not such a bad person when you get to know her. She just has some... kindness issues to work out.

And her back and forth with Joshua. (^_^) It was so cute.

*pic of Chibi Ciara and Chibi Josh looking at each other from the corners of their eyes.*

While we were all at the mall though, Randy had apparently cornered Wulfgard into telling him all about his past, and what had happened to the first group of kids who had wandered into the Court. It... was not a happy story. ;_; So much sadness in his past, its a miracle he can keep going as strongly as he does. Especially leading us headlong into the Court. It makes me wonder if there's not some alternate reason for all of this. Randy thought he was being sneaky, but Liza totally trailed him and eavesdropped on the whole conversation. She's like some sort of super-spy.

*pic of Chibi Liza in spy goggles, suspended from a ceiling*

Saturday - Afternoon

(Note: This is where all my journal entries are up to date! Losing it for a little while put a damper on my daily updates.)

Today was quite the experience, to say the least. After the mall, we went to the Stadium back at school for a training session with Wulfgard-sensei. He split us all up into groups, getting us to work on something we needed to help us with the Court, or in assisting one of the new kids who had gotten dragged into the Court for the first time last night.

Theresa had a mishap with her shoes. She actually tried to run in those high heels of hers.

*pic of Chibi Theresa tripping over nothing*

A few of the others had some words, and Ciara and a bit of a falling out with Wulfgard-sensei. They just can't see eye to eye on things it seems. Either way, most of the group got split up, and I ended up with Izzy. I was trying to show him how to defend himself. He picked out his weapon, a long knife (no, the flashbacks ('o') ) and I had him trying to hit my shield with it, so we could both practice. Things were going okay for a while, until he tripped over himself (how is that even possible? I still doubt it was a total accident.) and landed right on top of me. Because no day this weekend is complete without embarrassment. ;_;

*pic of Chibi Izzy tripping over nothing. Chibi Theresa is in the background. A word bubble says "I did that first."*

Of course, he landed right on top of me. In a rather... unfortunate way. So I tried to push him off and accidentally hit him in the head with my shield. It was a total accident, and I feel really bad for it, cause it could have seriously hurt him. Wulfgard-sensei bandaged him up, and Randy didn't seem like he was angry at me, but I still feel bad about it. I'm gonna make it up to him on Sunday.

Sofiya and Mana had an... interesting training session as well. I think they spent half their time on top of each other. Still, whatever works I guess. Maybe if Sofiya can get to know Mana better, I can get another chance to talk to him.

Saturday - The Court

To call the Court that Saturday a surprise would be an understatement. Normally, the courts that follow a Friday are relatively peaceful. Not tonight however.

The new members of our group, the ones who got dragged in yesterday, all managed to summon their Personae. Its always interesting to see what form they take. If a Persona is created from a person, then the form it takes could be a kind of representation of that person, right? I guess the forms didn't come as much of a surprise. Ciara's was a Kitsune! I totally recognize it from some old fairy tales.

*pic of Chibi Ciara (in full classical Kimono garb) riding Kitsune*

Halberd got a shadowy looking warrior lady. (Research update: Scathach) Odd that he got a female Persona... Maybe he just has a lot of feminine traits? He certainly doesn't seem like a manly man like Randy or Wulfgard. Russel (who I still have hardly seen) got Eros, a god of love. (Research update: Really, Eros? That Eros? I may need to keep an eye on Russel.) Lace summoned up a pretty creepy looking... thing. And proceeded to insult and attack it. ... yeah. (Research update: O_O) Clarise (that blue hair is cool. At least I'm not the only one here with a weird hair color... Not sure if Liza's purple counts.) summoned up Konohana Sakuya! There was a shrine to her near my hometown. My grandparents made a big deal of visiting it each spring to watch the sakura flowers. But its odd, Konohana Sakuya is a flower goddess, but Clarise's was all white and icy. Maybe the Personae don't have as much to do with their form as I initially thought?

*pic of Konohana Sakuya looking at a flower questioningly, a "?" over her head*

Randy and Izzy had a falling out. I wish the two of them would stop fighting. Randy always seems to be messing with Izzy somehow, and Izzy is always shut up in his room. I need to get him out more... then again, until a week ago I was practically a Hikikomori myself... Liza (in full super-spy mode) was on hand to cheer Randy up afterwards, which is good cause he almost got drunk on the roof of the school, and bad things could have happened to him like that.

Until this point, things looked like any other non-Friday Court. But then, the disco happened.

With incredibly loud electronic music blaring over head, and then all the flashing lights and all, it looked like the stadium had turned into some kind of nightclub or something. That's when Shadow JP appeared, fully dressed as some kind of Super-Pimp. Complete with, of all things, Shadows that looked like strippers. And the way they moved and attacked...


I'm just going to skip that part. I don't need that to go down on record here.

JP got the short end of the deal, as his Shadow pulled him into a one-on-one cage fight to the death. The rest of us were left to fend off the "Shad-Hos", each one-on-one except for Wulfgard who had to deal with two of the... the monstrosities.

As tough as the Shad-Ho's were, JP had the worst deal. He tried to pull some sort of heroic stand or something (See Also: a bad idea in a cage fight with an embodiment of evil) and tossed his weapons aside. So his shadow slapped him around a bit. JP claimed he was doing okay because his Persona Pedro could "possess" him. That's kinda creepy. I hope Astraea can't do that... Actually, I think I'd trust her.

*pic of Pedro controlling Chibi JP with marionette strings. Chibi Shadow JP watches, a huge grin on his face. His Pimp hat is easily three sizes too big.*

Shadow JP offered him a deal, he could take up his weapons and make the battle easier for him, but someone else would be in danger, or he could just keep going at it and risk his own life. JP, the poor misguided soul, took up his weapons. As a result, Theresa was dragged over to the cage, and electrified against the bars. She survived, barely, but she became inflicted with Apathy Syndrome, a condition that will cause her to literally lay there and do nothing, like a waking coma. Its sad... what happened. I know JP and her had something going on. Maybe that's why the Shadow targeted her... just like my Shadow tried to attack Ciara since I had gotten angry at her earlier.

And then, its horrible choice completed, Shadow Pimp did the cruelest thing it could do. It killed itself, and left JP to deal with the results of his choice. The Shad-Ho's vanished, the music died, and everything seemed to go back to the normal routine for the night... except just like the day before, we had lost one of our teammates.

*Indecipherable pic. Seems to be little more than Miyuki absentmindedly scribbling. The swirls are dark and ominous.*

Some good news did come out of tonight though. Randy got a new Persona, Hellion I think it was called. (Research Update: Hell's Angels?) Its like some kind of flaming punk biker from hell or something. So I guess the name fits. Looks kinda like Vigilante... I wonder if there's a connection? But why does he get two Personae? Will I get another one? I wonder if Astraea would mind having a partner?

And Izzy got his Persona too! Its... some kind of robot guy named Daedalus. (Reaserch update: Hey, Daedalus is Greek, just like Astraea!)

*pic of Astraea and Daedalus hi-fiveing each other.*

But there was something ominous going on that night as well, though we didn't know it. Turns out that Shinai (Mr. Creepy from earlier on Friday) had a Persona as well. It was called Ophidian, and it was pretty ominous. (Research update: Not a lot of info. Seems to be dream related.) Shinai seems to have some dark screts, like with that girl he's with all the time, Assua. Maybe he's doing what he does for her sake. I just hope he doesn't take it too far...

Notes on the Court of Miracles: Today was the first time a Shadow Self appeared on a day other than Friday. It also marked the first time one of us (Randy) awakened a 2nd Persona. The more I learn about the court, the more mysteries it seems to hold. Will we ever find out the truth, or are we all destined to die one by one?


I don't need to dwell on that.

Miyuki's Journal - Day 14

Sunday - Morning

Today's the day I try to make it up to Izzy.

I've got everything ready. I hope you're with me outside the court Astraea, I could use some of your courage.

Alright, so the first thing you guys will be doing is starting up after school on Monday, the 31st. Also known as Halloween.
Later in the night, there is a costume ball being held in the Gymnasium. Find a date, go stag, or don't even show up, whatever.
Marbly, Levin is in Miss Halls' Homeroom.
So, get to talking boys and girls. We start anew!
If you need to know anything the GMPCs are doing for your post, send me a VM and I'll let you know.

23rd March 2012, 9:40 AM
Okay, so I didn't expect to be the first to post in the RPG thread. Even less did I expect to be the first to post in the Discussion Thread. Alas, life is full of surprises.

Anyway, the first half of my post is basically a recap of Halberd's life in the last two months. Originally I was gonna put it in Halberd's History, but that would have made his signup way too long. Also, I've been debating about it ever since posting my signup, but in the end I had Halberd succumb to Wulfgard's wish and move into the dorms. Providing a hopefully creative reason for doing so.

Also, I have finally succumbed to TV Tropes... I've been looking around it a lot this past weekend, and have been making a list of tropes that fit with all my characters... Halberd is naturally one of those characters, and I found a couple of new ones for him:

Cavalier Competitor (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CavalierCompetitor), given his highly moralistic view on fencing and belief in being fair in a fight. Mostly fair.

A member of a Five-Man Band (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FiveManBand), specifically the Black Cat Bandits. This is technically a four-man band, but Halberd fills two of the roles: the Hero (because he's the leader) and the Big Guy (duh).

23rd March 2012, 10:28 AM
FFFUUU- This has to start NOW that I'm about to leave for the weekend? NNNGH.

Can't help it, will post when I get back. SAVE SOME ACTION FOR MEH TOO.

23rd March 2012, 12:06 PM
Zinc, hope you don't mind if I swapped out Konohana's outside of battle ability for something a bit more...logical/helpful.

23rd March 2012, 4:17 PM
Honestly, I didn't think anyone would post that early. That's great.
Although I don't think I ever said anything about kids coming to school in costume. If unsure, you should ask me first.

When are you not going away for the weekend?

It depends on what you change it to.

23rd March 2012, 4:55 PM
I was actually up when you posted the threads but I was way too tire to post anything so I just went to sleep. Since I'm awake now I'll guess I'll get a typing it.

23rd March 2012, 5:29 PM
So... just to clarify Zinc, ARE people walking around in costume or is that going to be saved for the party?

23rd March 2012, 5:36 PM
They might be. You still have time to change after class, so you don't have to have gone in costume.
I know the GMPCs won't change until the party... as was planned.
So, the amount of people dressed up in the school is about half.

23rd March 2012, 5:36 PM
YUS! It begins! Newbie (read: Marbly), show us what you've got! Show me your moves!

Wordy and I are currently writing up a joint post, I expect that we can finish it by the end of the day, if we don't consider it so already.

23rd March 2012, 5:44 PM
Also, don't feel like you need to write somthing as long as I did.
That little post there was three pages in Word.
I still want quality, but I'm not gonna hold you to two or three pages on each post. That's insane.

I love the video feature:

I have no idea why I posted that. But it was worth it.

23rd March 2012, 6:54 PM
Well, every K-12 school I've attended, and practically every one I've seen that doesn't require uniforms, has plenty of students in costume during school on Halloween. Especially since not everyone is a partygoer. And like I said, Halberd might not even go to the party, so that was probably his only chance to be in costume the entire day.

And yes, there is a reason why Halberd dressed up as a pirate specifically, a reason that shall reveal itself later in the RPG...

EDIT: Okay, here's a question I do have. In the Bellow High dorms, do the boys and girls have separate common rooms, or do they share one and have separate rooms or sets of rooms (i.e. as in Hogwarts). As much as I would love to reply to VB's post, I want to see if this is valid first...

23rd March 2012, 7:19 PM
This isn't every K-12 school you attended though.

We share a single common room on the main floor. Don't worry about that.

Clean slate! Let's go, peons!

23rd March 2012, 7:56 PM
Wordy, as usual, proving how awesome she is. Bow before the Dread Queen!

Also, whoever wants to be crashed into by Joshua, go ahead if you want, it doesn't exactly affect anything for me though.

24th March 2012, 12:58 AM
Hmmm... I don't really have anything to write about JP (though I haven't read all of the posts yet) so I am most likely going to have him exit class and visit Terri, following it up with some introspection. Hope that's alright.

24th March 2012, 1:08 AM
I'm gonna take a little longer to post, for several reasons:
- Finished reading Upon the Grave of Guilt recently and I'm not done with OP yet, and it's a lot of stuff to digest.
- Gotta read the character bios slowly to memorize how each of them are.
- Levin has no Persona, no knowledge of the whole thing and I'm still trying to figure out how to include him in the plot.

So don't think I dropped out if I take longer than expected to make a decent post. ;)

24th March 2012, 1:28 AM
I like this guy, he's got a good head on his shoulders. But seriously, you can just post with Levin doing whatever the hell you like, and Zinc will presumably bring him into the Court with the rest of us at the end of the day.

24th March 2012, 1:57 AM
Somthing I sent to Marbly:

if you want, I can make it so that Levin was drug into the Court on Sunday.
I'll go back and edit my post to the students finding some 'loudmouth who doesn't know the crock he's in', and tell them to give him the usual lecture (If you remember this tomorrow, don't say anything, just meet us at the Gym at midnight).
That way he can have his Persona for tonight... he'll kinda need it.
And he'll have somthing to ponder on and be sceptic about.

So keep that in mind. Levin's already been in the Court, and he's going through the same thing you all did on your first day after. Wondering if it's real.
The whole 'ignore his insane ramblings until he gets dragged in once again' thing works pretty well.
If someone wants to grab him and try to explain it everything that's going on, go ahead.
Just let Marbly post before you glomp Levin.

24th March 2012, 2:01 AM
It good you want to learn everything but you can just post Levin going to school like a normal person. Something that he might know is that two months ago: one person went missing (Diego because he body was never found because he was burned), one person die (he was in Ms. Halls' homeroom) and other person was hospitalized from the school. Also, if I can remember everyone, the people in Ms. Halls homeroom is Russell, Snow, Sigmund, Sofiya, Lace and Clarise. So make up some NPC friends pick up couple clubs and keep going. Or continue your reading... whatever makes you comfortable I guess. Oh maybe you want to see my Need to Know I wrote about the RPG!

Which reminds me Kiruria, what's Halberd dorm room #? 201, 203, 205, 206, 211, 214 and 215 for the guys are available and I guess 208 it since used to belonged to Kent.

Also if you didn't guess.. I posted! It really long and it'll probably be the longest one I write all RPG. It really depends.

Edit: I've been ninja'd oh noes. I you can ignore my first statement and listen to Zinc.

24th March 2012, 2:20 AM
The ***** is back!

Although we're starting with less *****, more... desperately lovestruck teenager who is definitely not trying to seem lovestruck in any way, shape or form.

Added some Izzy themes by Zinc's request.

Ciara will refuse to have anything to do with any 'new people'. That is the job of someone with far less important things to do. Really. Also, that's an excellent idea, Zinc. It'll definitely pick up the pacing.

But let's go for it, peons!

That post was long.

The objective is to make Joshua the desire of Bellow High's teenage girls (and maybe even some boys) by the end of the night.


24th March 2012, 3:54 AM
@Inner Flame: *applause* I loved your post! Halberd would be so proud of Russell if he could only see him... Anyway, uhhh... dorm room number? I never really thought about it before... Eeney meeney miney mo... 214! I dunno.

Oh noes, Lace's (and possibly Sofiya's) "Insanity Syndrome" has rubbed off on Halberd! Oh well, at least now we all have a hint as to what his Shadow Self might be like. I think this might have just been my craziest post yet...

24th March 2012, 4:04 AM
Hmmm if it make it better here's room list that I have so far.

Boy’s Floor
Randy is in room #202
Snow Fields is in room #204
Sigmund is in room #206
Mana is room #207
Kent is in room #208 <- Has died so I guess his room is free?
Hikaru is in room #209 <- Isn't part of the RPG anymore but didn't die, so I dunno?
JP is in room #210
Russell is in room #212
Joshua’s is in room #213

The room next door to Russell is currently not claimed by any player. Also I'm glad you liked the post I might get him to join Halberd and Lace eventually. Speaking of it time to read your post.

24th March 2012, 4:33 AM
Hikaru still lives in the dorm... but no one really cares.
Ken's room is kinda taboo to be in at the moment.
Just choose 205, 211, 214, or 215.
If 201 is still open, I'll be shoving Izzy in it.

24th March 2012, 4:34 AM
Oh look. The Discussion Thread and RP Thread are up. My galaxy is not ready! Er... body, I mean. Too much Mass Effect.

I was chilling because I thought it wasn't up until Saturday. Although it's probably Saturday for a couple of you guys, what with time zone shenanigans and all.

Nnngh, costumes. Nnngh, ball. I make a point of not going to my school's events, so I dunno what that's going to be all about. Although I guess Mana might go. If only because not going would probably mean missing important plot or hilarious mishaps. So... time to ask someone out.*Spins bottle*

Dead people's rooms are bad juju.

24th March 2012, 4:36 AM
And then Mana walked right up to Sofiya, only to be asked out by her.
She knows she must teach him the proper way of the dance. He'll just embarass himself otherwise.
Unfortuneatly her method involves knives.

EDIT: Also, I just got it up two days early. I'm proud of myself.

24th March 2012, 4:44 AM
Fun posts so far! And if Sofiya and Mana end up going to the party together, would it mimic their training sessions? Halbred might be able to get away with having a real sword due to Fencing club, but I dunno about Sofiya and those knives.

So... any of the guys want to try giving Snow dating advice? Or girls, I suppose. Didn't plan on that, but I got an NPC thrown my way and decided to make use of her. Funnier if said advice something easily misinterpreted.

24th March 2012, 4:47 AM
Time for Randy to pull out his Handy-Dandy Notepad of Love.
It's completely useless.
But he'll want to read it to Snow anyway.

24th March 2012, 5:09 AM
And then Sofiya goes to the ball in a suit, holding a ball gown-clad Mana at knifepoint. Don't we all love happy endings?

Mana lacks rhythm entirely. So dancing will likely be slightly humiliating. But he's the kind of guy who'd never, ever go on the dance floor...

Randy's Handy-Dandy Notepad of Love? Mana needs it too. Because I need to see this happen. The Notepad would likely inspire JP as well. And solve Joshua's women Ciara thing. And find Snow love. And hook Halberd up with Lace. Randy must become the bumbling, incompetent Love Guru, and Russell with Cupid is his hypercompetent but forever alone sidekick! It's the new prime time sensation!

The Super Erotic XXX Bros.! Isn't it Bromantic?™

"Rule number one! Never look a woman in the eye. Eye contact is how they detect fear. When you doubt your ability to follow this rule, get a pair of sunglasses. Preferably mirrored. I've used them for years and haven't had a problem yet."

*Meanwhile, Izzy is mouthing "Don't listen to him. He's a madman."*

24th March 2012, 5:29 AM

Ain't I a stinker? :p I honestly didn't think you would accept her offer or even let her find you XD If you get advice from Russell it would be... I dunno be nice to her, ask her about her interests? Ask what she wants to do when in doubt.

Time for Randy to pull out his Handy-Dandy Notepad of Love.
It's completely useless.
But he'll want to read it to Snow anyway.

Yay, we get to see it again! I thought he would stop doing it after the whole Izzy getting angry at him.

And then Sofiya goes to the ball in a suit, holding a ball gown-clad Mana at knifepoint. Don't we all love happy endings?

That sound like it would be fun. Russell could be the word of reason and Randy would completely ignore him and give absurd advice anyways.

24th March 2012, 5:47 AM
I like how season 3 (BOSS) started with everyone in the middle of things with the shadows. No time to explain. Shoot and not-die!

It's got to be around 3-4pm and I'm guessing the dance is going to be late, around eight, nine-ish. Halloween party with a Court reception.
Snow doesn't look like he's really in need of advice. Just go with whatever happens. Trust ya gut!
It's gonna be fun with Halberd and dormitory candy. I got an idea.

EDIT: Zinc. If the guys are staying in the 200's, the girls are the 300's, right? Can't remember what the number or order is, you might have mentioned it way back when.
Can you tell me which of the girl's rooms are taken, and what's available?

24th March 2012, 5:54 AM
Well then in that case I'll take Room 211, just to annoy Russell further. 8D And hmm, dorm candy? Fun? Looking forward to it... I guess.

Of course, knowing this is Lace we're taking about, I'm willing to bet Halberd is in deep (insert name for brown thing in the toilet here) right about now. Or so everyone except him thinks.

Pfft, all of a sudden the candy pirate from Candy Land (I can't for the life of me remember his name) came to my mind.

EDIT: Speaking of candy land (in general), I just found a possible theme song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCPTL619XgY) for Lace. Especially in the upcoming scene.

Oh why not. Here are two more themes for Halberd, which are in quite a different genre than the other two:

Overworld theme (day): "Glorious Morning" by Waterflame (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2Dz0d3TUEw)
Overworld theme (night): "Defection" by ParagonX9 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lja6amc-nFY)

Both are video game tracks, making them all the more appropriate for him.

24th March 2012, 5:57 AM
I remember Lord Licorice, but he wasn't a pirate... just a D-Bag.
I don't think there was a pirate in Candy Land...
There was Sticky Beard in 'Kids Next Door', though.

24th March 2012, 6:09 AM
My room order has been updated. Is Ciara moving into the dorms? Because she currently the only person not on the dorm list. Except for Marble is Levin getting a dorm room?

24th March 2012, 10:58 AM
I believe everyone's moved into the dorms by this point.

Took me a couple of minutes to realise what Ciara's fake costume is, then I was all :O

The b!tch is back!

Although we're starting with less b!tch

... That is VERY arguable. But my God, that was brilliant. The posts so far have been of a great standard I have to say, we're really getting back into the swing of things.

24th March 2012, 1:46 PM
Yeah, everyone's in the dorms at this point. I don't really care about what number it is, honestly.

Ciara's room is lavishly decorated with velvety reds and all the rest of it. It just screams 'I have money to throw around.'

Added Halberd's d/n themes to the compendium, as well as Ciara's Shadow Battle theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p85zQLOMlUY).

You were all :O, really now? trolololol

How is it arguable? By my standards that would have been very nice.

All the men are completely obnoxious when it comes to matters of the heart. Snow would be better off asking the wind for help.

24th March 2012, 5:26 PM
I know that long-*ss posts full of with flashbacks and backstory aren't great, but it was necessary to at least make Levin's feelings believable and bring him to life a bit. Future posts will be less descriptive for your sake and mine (unless this is the kind of post you expect as the norm), but bear with me on this one.

24th March 2012, 5:40 PM
Don't care what anyone else but Zincspider thinks. Be confident in yourself! I had Russell sitting in class thinking about the past week and clubs for my first post of introduction of him (in POP) and I did not care. Your post is fine and it's not even that long. It's good to get a feel of how Levin life was before now. Description is good as long as it relevent (so don't go into detail about every single blade of grass). So good job newbie!

Pep talk aside would you like to give Levin a doom room # or would like me to put him in one of random remaining ones?

24th March 2012, 5:45 PM
Pep talk aside would you like to give Levin a doom room # or would like me to put him in one of random remaining ones?

Oh, it can be a random number, so long as he can interact with the rest of the guys later on. Not sure how that works though, since Levin isn't in the group of awesome yet and they've apparently all been relocated to the same dorm to make operations easier... Unless I misunderstood Zinc's OP.

24th March 2012, 6:03 PM
Well what happened was he original was only going to have the room # be 201-210 but he never realized that SoS had put his character in room number 213. So he thought there wouldn't be room to fit more guys in the dorm so he was going to put them in another dorm but once I mention it he decide to expand it to 215 which became more than enough room for them, I guess. It's not really important but I'm still hording away the information anyways so I know what the crap I'm talking about... I got oogles of stuff I even have the timeline that Blivsey wrote. I've been adding on it.

I put Levin in room #203 in between Randy and Snow and put Ciara in #304 between Lace and Clarise.

Just so you know... the school uniform is a blue blazer and black slacks(for boys)/skirts(for girls) (or which ever you character prefer I guess XD).

24th March 2012, 6:19 PM
WI got oogles of stuff I even have the timeline that Blivsey wrote. I've been adding on it

Any chance you could link me to that timeline? Sounds like it could be helpful in bringing me up to speed.

Room #203 it is then. And expect to see Levin in neatly-ironed slacks, unless that first trip to the Court messed him up more than I had planned. :P

24th March 2012, 6:36 PM
It'll be easier for my to post it because I don't sure what page it's on. I do need to find it though so I can reinsert the links he put in it. Hmm... I might be missing a few events now that I look at it. But nothing too important I just haven't put in when Shinai got his Persona. August 23 and above is what I wrote. I also added the info on the first entry.

Unspecified dates, 1996: Previous incident involving the Court of Miracles at the site currently occupied by Bellow High. Further details are unknown, though Garret Wulfgard seems very familiar with these events.

Confirmed that the court was in that location and Wulfgard was first pulled into the court at that time. Blew up the school in hopes it end the court. Wulfgard was the only survivor.

Sunday/10 August 2011: Garret Wulfgard confirms that the Court of Miracles is again in effect at Bellow High.

Monday/11 August 2011: Beginning First day of school. Most characters move into campus housing, begin interaction. Day played out in-game beginning here.

Thursday/14 August 2011: Further character interaction, no major plot events.

Friday/15 August 2011: First student involvement in Court of Miracles. Diego Vendrix's Shadow Self appears, wins against students in fight. Diego Vendrix is killed by his Shadow Self. Students introduced to Court are Mana Shizuko, Sofiya Ignatova, Miyuki Tachibana, Joaquim Pereira, Joshua Sands, Theresa Del Monico, Diego Vendrix, Sigmund Okonkwo, Randy Clopin and Snow Fields.

Saturday/16 August 2011: Garret Wulfgard begins giving combat training to the students involved in the Court of Miracles. Students use the Persona ability for the first time. Students introduced to the Court are Minami Umehara, Kent Lockewood.

Sometime Between Sunday and Wednesday (17 and 20 August): Liza Monroe is introduced to the Court.

Monday/18 August 2011: Club activities begin.

Thursday/21 August 2011: Randy Clopin is severely injured fighting an unknown enemy during the Court of Miracles, leaving him temporarily unfit for battle.

Friday/22 August 2011: Miyuki Tachibana's and Ezekiel Simone's Shadow Selves appear. The Jester makes his first appearance. Students are forced into a sadistic trap, killing Kent Lockewood. Students introduced to the Court are Clarise Stone, Bryan ‘Halberd’ Donneley, Russell Wilton, Lace Condor, Ciara Wright.

Saturday/23 August 2011: The characters spend the morning interacting at the mall before they started training. JP’s Shadow Self appears putting the characters against a Shad-Ho in a Disco Strip Club. Randy obtains a new Persona. Theresa was inflicted with Apathy Syndrome due to the attack on her from multiple Shad-Hos.

Between 22 August-October 29 2011: About two months pass with no notable events happening.

Sunday/30 October 2011: The persona group fights off large amount of Minotaur Shadows. The number of Apathy Syndrome victims increase. Levin Sander joins the Court?

Monday/31 October 2011: Interactions are going on after school. The Persona crews are preparing for a Halloween Costumes. Will something big happen on this day?

It might. Russell first two courts was enough to tramatize him. Someone died, he had to decide to stab himself for a random person or let them die. Then the next day someone is inflicted with Apathy Syndrome and is now hospitalized. He's afraid for his life but I guess him give him the determination to not want to die.

24th March 2012, 9:10 PM
Sig's back, now with footnotes! I kinda like 'em - they're much cleaner for adding aside information. Might keep 'em. Thoughts?

Heh, I'm imagining Snow wandering between about half the cast now, getting five different sets of wildly conflicting advice that ultimately just leaves him more confused. Or getting any advice from Sofiya or Lace. But for now, his BBF (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BlackBestFriend)'s got his back, Ysav. Of course, almost all of Sigmund's advice will be based on conjecture, so keep that in mind.

"Hmm? Girls? I think they like boy bands - you're a music-type, right? You could try and serenade one, I guess. Like a siren, but with less ship-crashing and drowning. Probably."

Hey, I remember that timeline! Good to know it's still useful. I was gonna snag a first place post to keep tidbits like that, but neglected to - luckily, it seems like most useful info is on the first three pages. If we find any other vaguely important miscellanea, this is where I'll keep it, then.

25th March 2012, 5:46 AM
So, um, which characters are in the common room of the dorm? I know a lot of characters are in the dorm building/near it but outside of Lace and Halberd, I'm not sure who is in the common room specifically.

25th March 2012, 6:03 AM
So far just Halberd and Lace. Levin, Snow and Sigmund are heading that direction. Russell outside to the back of the building but I'll probably bring him inside as well; eventually.

25th March 2012, 6:05 AM
Just a quick headcount:

Shinai is off performing a blood ritual on his (former) main squeeze.
JP and Testa just met up on the other side of town.
Randy and Liza are off fighting Shadow!Liza, cut off from the players.
Everyone else is fighting shadow-bears.

Hmm, maybe I should just start keeping track of where all the characters are and what they're doing. Not too hard to update frequently, and it'd be a good quick-reference... DONE. THIS POST IS NOW STALKERPOST.

EDIT: Ah, ninja'd. In that case, lemme drop this so I feel marginally more useful:


25th March 2012, 6:43 AM
Thanks. Short post but it'll do for now.

25th March 2012, 6:00 PM
lol@Stalkerpost. He's always watching us.

You guys do realise that in introducing NPCs with names, you're giving Zinc 'collateral damage' and a way to write all those grisly death scenes he so desperately wants to :P

I'm kidding.

25th March 2012, 6:17 PM
Oh, that's exactly what we're looking for... *cackles evilly*

Either that or a way to greatly embarrass our PCs.

25th March 2012, 8:26 PM
I might introduce a female NPC for Jp to get busaaaaay with at the party.
Zinc is free to traumatize the boy even further by killing her. Effectively driving the JP to, most likely, is own suicide.

And we know that is the thing this RPG needs the most.

25th March 2012, 9:39 PM

I disagree. Firstly leave the poor NPC girl alone she've done nothing to deserve to be sacrifaced for JP like he is some god. Also I hate the whole suicude thing. It's bad; I hate the whole idea of suicude. Russell would think he took the quitter's way out and that will be instilled in him for forevermore. If your going to down at least try to go down somewhat like a man.

25th March 2012, 10:11 PM
I like it.
We aren't here for everything to go all nice and perfect IF. Conflict happens in life, and should occur in an RP as well. If everyone always chooses safe choices, are you really role-playing your character? Or are you just trying to please everyone with some robot who says the perfect thing at the perfect time?
Bad things happen. That's not to say good things don't, but sometimes things take a turn for the worse. And that's perfectly allowed.

25th March 2012, 10:34 PM
I know that. The world an angry, cruel and unfair place. I have no problem with characters dying unfairly or being betrayed; I just really hate suicudes. Of all ways to die I hate it the most. I'm just voicing my opinion on it; he can do it if he wants, I'm just saying that I despise the idea.

25th March 2012, 10:38 PM
The world an angry, cruel and unfair place.
Now, that's a bit harsh.
It certainly can be, but isn't by default.
There's kind deeds, helpful people, and those who care about justice as well. It's equal parts good and bad, not naturally one or the other.

25th March 2012, 10:59 PM
I know that too; my mom makes me watch a lot murder, crimes shows which makes me think that a lot but I understand that. There's both good and evil in the world; I've tasted on both sides but you know it makes you appreciate life. Which is why suicude make me upset. Someone got to the point in which they thought there was no more hope left in this world. And I like to think that there is always even the smallest chance of hope.

But we're kind getting off subject here. So how's the fanfic coming? I waiting to read it.

25th March 2012, 11:21 PM


25th March 2012, 11:33 PM
..... Totally adding that to my favorites on youtube XD My secret weakness adorable internet animation memes!

25th March 2012, 11:38 PM


I love how Naoto is the only one drinking milk.

26th March 2012, 12:07 AM
The scenes make me laugh because I played all three games thus it make sense to me. I think Pharos is drinking milk... It looks white.

Ooo one my favorites! A bunch of internet memes squeezed into one video.


26th March 2012, 12:36 AM
Its hilarious watching you re-discover all the Persona vids that have been in my You Tube list for ages now. Mostly because I get to re-discover them with you. :p

Goodness things are moving fast. You guys are productive.

I'll be posting in a bit then, can't let myself far too far behind.

I may as well leave a Persona related vid.


26th March 2012, 2:30 AM
>'makes me watch crime shows'

... Um, that sounds... harsh? Forced crime show watching? "WATCH YOUR MURDER TELEVISION, CHILD! YOU MUST LEARN!!!"

My favorite crime show is Dexter!


All these Persona videos are amazing. I just wish I understood what they were saying. Needs english subtitles. Also, the second one Zinc brought up has both Justice links - Nanako and Ken. Is it trying to imply something about Justice?

I'll post soon. Mustn't get left behind.

26th March 2012, 6:03 AM
I think she want someone to watch it so she has someone to talk about it. All of her stories always tend to end with something bad happening and it always something that really happened. It like she needs the constantly remind us that there are crazy, sicko people in the world. Or bad things can happen doing normal things... She once was telling us this really morbid story about someone getting chop up while we were eating... Needless to say but she's forbidden from telling story at dinner table. But that's my Mom and I love her.

I posted again right after Niihyl. I was going to wait for VB but Halberd last line was soo easy to be misunderstood that I couldn't resist. I like awkward moments... It was really fun to type it up.

26th March 2012, 10:10 AM
... *hugs IF* I'm a criminology student with a lecture on violent crime tomorrow morning. That should be fun. I might feel slightly sick.

More importantly! Hopefully Sequel and I can finish up in the mall reasonably quickly so we can all move on to the party.

27th March 2012, 5:30 PM
Back! Now you people don't need to be cold at night anymore <3

I ALSO POSTED. So I'm a good person.

27th March 2012, 5:48 PM
I really think it might be impossible to comprehend that costume without visual aid...
It's amazing.

27th March 2012, 5:54 PM
Visual aid shall be provided whenever I get the chance/time to produce it 8D And image it, since even I'm not quite sure of all the things included in that costume. But there are amazing things included. Lots of them.

27th March 2012, 10:34 PM
The image in my mind is somewhat disturbing. Although I feel rather sorry for the hapless teachers who had to deal with Sofiya. Where did she even get all that stuff anyway? Well, I await the visual aid.

But seriously, someone needs to put a parent filter on Sofiya's internet. While internet censorship is still bad and all, sometimes you've got to consider the greater good... of everyone.

... Neko-Mana? Nekomana? Nekomata? So that's how it works.

27th March 2012, 10:38 PM
I'm not sure whether to be squicked out that Sofiya might have used her own blood or not to make the costume.

27th March 2012, 10:42 PM
She has a secret stash of... things. You don't want to know anything further. And you think the parent filter'd help? She'd find out her computer can't display what other people's can, and the inner conspiracy theorist in her would want answers. And then one night some poor, unfortunate soul would wake up with Sofiya in their room, browsing all that questionable stuff with THEIR computer all "Oh hai, my computer is kidnapped by the governments pet aliens, so I'm educating myself here instead now! Look, look what I just found".

Nekomanamata. Nekomatamana. Mataneko... ugh. Mana with cat ears. There.

As for the blood... It's not hers. She got a few... donators to help her with it. Donators who may or may not have been asked first. It's a Halloween mystery. Every Halloween needs a few spooky stories.

28th March 2012, 12:23 AM
Speaking of scary stories... a certain GMPC has no idea how to tell a good one. The setups are great... but they never reach a satisfying conclusion.

I rember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday.
I was barely seventeen...and I once killed a boy with a fender guitar.
I don't remember if it was a telecaster or a stratocaster, but I do remember that it had a heart of chrome, AND A VOICE LIKE A HORNY ANGEL!
I don't remember if it was a telecaster of a stratocaster, but I do remember that it wasn't, at all, eeeasy.
It required the combination of the right power chords, and the precise angle from which to strike!
The guitar bled for about a week afterwards, and the blood was dark and rich, like wild berries. The blood of the guitar was chopped berry red!
The guitar bled for about a week afterward, but it rung. Out. Beautifully.
And I was able to play notes that I'd never. Even. Heard. Before.
So I took my guitar, and I smashed it against the wall! I Smashed it against the floor! I smashed it against the body of a varsity cheerleader! Smashed it against the hood of a car! Smashed it against a 1981 Harley Davidson!
And I ran up the stairs to my parents' bedroom... Mom-mee, and Dad-dee were sleeping in the moonlight.
Slowly, I opened the door, creeping in the shadows right up to the foot of their bed.
I raised the guitar! HIGH! ABOVE! MY HEAD!
And just as I was about to bring the guitar, crashing down upon the center of the bed, my father woke up screaming!:
"STOP! Wait a minute! STOP IT BOY! What do you think you're doin'? That's no way to treat an expensive musical instrument!"
And I said:

"... you know, if you're going to directly quote 'Meat Loaf', you ought to give him credit."

28th March 2012, 2:36 PM
So, after I'm donw with a paper for english, I'll get the next post up.

28th March 2012, 4:42 PM
KK? Was that a Three 6 Mafia joke? Ha! I know that song; kind of.

Anyway, sounds good, take your time.

Oh, and by the way. Since the dance'll be at the school, the gymnasium is where its actually happening, right? I'll probably be Trick-or-Treatin' around that time. I just want to make sure I'm in the right neighborhood is all. Can't wait for that sweet gooey candy corn, and pumpkin punch!

28th March 2012, 4:47 PM
Yeah, the dance is at the gym.
It starts at 7 'o Clock (Somthing that was going to be mentioned in the next post).
You could probably hit up early houses and still make it to the party before it ends... or after it barely begins.

28th March 2012, 5:21 PM
So, after I'm donw with a paper for english, I'll get the next post up.

B-B-B-Ballin. English is evil. I always liked it though. Why did I drop it at 16 then? Because I thought I wanted to do Physics, and was an idiot. And VB actually beat me to the punch on her question, so that works. Gee, I wonder when my next non-collab post will be...

28th March 2012, 8:29 PM
Probably after you stop asking to do them, mate.

Also, I've finished my paper and I'm working on the post now.
Zinc's new posts: Now with 80% less Randy! 8D Damn I'm glad to be out of that arc. Time for Jones.

English is evil? That's my best subject.
I might not show the best of my ability here, but I'm a cunning linguist.
This is my writing I do in order to relax for my writing I get graded for. I don't pay attention to what I put down half the time.

28th March 2012, 9:10 PM
I used to really hate english then I started RPing here and I got a really awesome English teachers and I finally learn to love it. But then I started to hate math even though it was my best subject until I got a terrible teacher. I never understood what people meant about having a bad teacher until I had one; almost everyone failed her class. I had to go tutoring just to understand it, something I've never done for any subjects other than that class. I heard she was... relieved of her position shortly after that.

I'll give Kiruria a couple more days before I post again. I'll be leaving on Saturday and I won't be back until about Wednesday. I'm going to be visiting my sick uncle, aunty and my big sister. My laptop as of everytime I've been there doesn't connect to the internet in my sis's house for some reason so I'll probably won't able to get on.

28th March 2012, 9:46 PM
***** please, bad teachers were the bread and butter back at my home.
This one time, at school, a kid set my hair on fire with Axe and a lighter on the locker-room. With ashes still in my hair and smelling like burnt zombie, I went to my PE teacher and told her what happened.

She just shrugged. Never even said a single word. Literally, not a single **** was given.
And her teaching skills didn't exactly amend her actions.

28th March 2012, 9:51 PM
Let's not talk about bad teachers here.
They give the good ones a bad name./hasfamilythatteacheswhocatchahardtime
Let's talk about something else if we must.

28th March 2012, 9:56 PM
This character select screen- awesome or AWESOME?!


(Yes, that is ELIZABETH. And she's still the World's Deadliest Elevator Girl.)

And quick, a video using the new embed feature!


<3 <3 <3

28th March 2012, 10:17 PM
Elizabeth is coming to Inaba? Either she must be there for Izanagi's (aka the MC) help, or the local steaks. It's got to be the steaks.

P4: Arena is getting close! Does anyone know who they're going to main? I'll side with Labrys thanks to her theme song.

I-Is that Thanatos? ...She's broke already. I didn't think she was tied to just one Persona. Elizabeth basically fought you with the whole compendium in P3.

They still need playable Nanako, and Funky Afro Student DLC, on release day. Throw in Fox and his healing leaves too for a support character.

EDIT: What do you guys usually do around Halloween? We might be too old for Trick-or-Treatin', so, there's always haunted houses, right?

28th March 2012, 10:25 PM
Too bad I'm likely the worst person alive at playing this sort of game. Looks awesome if you know how to pull all the snazzy stuff.

28th March 2012, 10:45 PM
Holy s***! It's Elizabeth! Wait... she's the Death Arcana? And she has Thanatos? What. Elizabeth was super-hardcore. But still not as hardcore as Hito-Shura.

There are three characters with Wheel of Fortune... that's Naoto, and I assume Labrys + Shadow Labrys. Ngh, August seems so far away... hope it releases for Vita though. BlazBlue did, after all. And I still need a Persona 5 announcement. But then again, there's an Atlus PSN sale now, so I can go and finally play Persona 1 (Revelations?)! Hooray! And maybe Persona 2 Innocent Sin, since the PSP version is apparently better than the original.

28th March 2012, 10:49 PM
Eh, I'm not a fan of the Persona games before 3... the battle system was way to slow.

28th March 2012, 10:56 PM
And I'm not really a fan of 3 because of tiredness and the inability to control your allies. I haven't played P3P though, is it different there?

I am god-awful at fighting games apart from Smash Bros. (and even then I'm iffy), so in all likelihood, I'll give the Arena a miss.

28th March 2012, 10:59 PM
You do get direct control of your party. Now you can actually strategize and guard now!

Atlus is doing a Persona sale on PSN? Neat.

28th March 2012, 11:04 PM
I actually felt a lot more thinking was necessary in P3 because you didn't have full control and all you could set up were tactics. I mean, I know I can do the same in P4 if I want to, but not having an alternative at all made P3 more challenging.

28th March 2012, 11:06 PM
P3P brings in P4's 'control your party' feature. Thank god, although it's not default, and apparently you can't make it default either. So before every fight you have to go into Tactics and change to 'Direct Control'.

Assuming direct control.

Also, you only get 'Tired' if you get KO'd and you don't revive by the end of battle. And there are cheap items that cure Tiredness, so you can pretty much grind forever now. You have to pay for healing, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than that bastard fox. Actually, it makes the game kind of too easy now.

I love Super Smash Bros.! No quarter turns, z-motions, circles, charges... just direction B or direction A.

Ngh, have to reply to Golden and Sofiya madness. I need to think of a way to keep Mana in those ears for the rest of the day.

28th March 2012, 11:06 PM
Your characters do get tire but as VB said you can now control your characters. Though I tend to only do it when I fight bosses. I'm lazy don't like giving everyone a command. Also you a get a girl version!

Edit: What Nii-san, who ninja'd me, said is also true. I found it much easier than the original; without my friends throwing himself into death arms.

28th March 2012, 11:12 PM
But it is default. You only need to do it the first time. I went Direct Commands the whole game, and the only time I needed to change it back again from 'Do Anything' was after Orgia Mode or when a new party member joined for the first time. Also, the addition of a Defend command made P3P easier than it probably should have been. Combat wasn't balanced for me to be able to do that. Hermit boss was way easier when Yukari could just defend whenever after being abused for Mediarama.

But in any case, Nyx took forever. Jeez gurl/man, how long are you going to keep shifting Arcana for? And then the final stage was just resistant to everything and I was like NOOOO.

Shadow Labrys's familiar is the best thing ever:


Also, don't be too quick. P4A has been specifically designed for RPG fans coming in from the main Persona series as well as fans of fighting games, so it's very easy to get into! It doesn't have a high execution requirement and you can still enjoy yourself if you... aren't so good.

28th March 2012, 11:16 PM
There was so much derp a few posts up, I'm glad it was cleared up.
But that's done and done.
Everyone may continue their daily Zinc Worship Hour.

29th March 2012, 12:01 AM
Maybe mine's just screwed up? I have to change it to Direct Commands every. single. battle. On the bright side, FeMC (girl ver.) is much better, in my opinion, since you get Social Links will all the male members of SEES. Akihiko, Shinjiro, Ken, etc., they're all just as important as the girls, and definitely more important than random music club members.


Derp? What derp?

All hail Zinc! May his name live on in glory forever.

29th March 2012, 12:11 AM
Dammit Niihyl.
You were late by a single minute.
The Zinc Worship Hour starts at 5 and ends at 6.

29th March 2012, 3:30 AM
I actually liked the lack of direct control in P3. It was different and interesting. I didn't find it too frustrating either (at least not frustrating as trying to max all social links in the original version... but most have you have heard that from me before).

Started playing FFXII recently myself (more AI allies! I think I find it endearing because I love Star Ocean 2 as well...). Watched the opening and thought 'This is like Star Wars plus FF2'. I'm still thinking that several hours into the game. At least it doesn't have FF2's wonky leveling system.

29th March 2012, 3:49 AM
Same here Ysa; it only made me mad when they did stupid things that got themselves killed; like fighting the last boss. Omigosh there a way to max all the social links!? [/joking... slightly] I've have fail to figure how to do it on my own. I'm not a good at organizing and know when to meet people and what's the right things to say (most of the time). I enjoy Persona 3 for the PS2 just the way it is, but that just my opinion.

29th March 2012, 10:42 AM
Eh, that's probably just my personal taste, I like to have control. That's why I suck at The World Ends With You, I hate auto-play, but am very bad at controlling both screens at once.

29th March 2012, 1:31 PM
Im among the ones who liked no control, since that increases immersion and makes things more interesting. I usually only put in direct Control in P4 when going against a difficult boss that requires a particular strategy that I can't convey with simple tactics (like the Lego Shadow, for example) or when I'm underleveled.

Though I hate that in P3 and P4 the team members you dont use dont level with you. Yeah, its logical and all that, but it means that after lvl 30 or 40 I have to resort to using the same team through all dungeons, because my other allies are dangerously underleveled and I cant bring myself to waste 2 hours training them. This problem happens to me everytime I reach the Naoto dungeon (looking at you, Chie, who only stays in my team if I need Galactic Punting.)

29th March 2012, 5:18 PM
As someone who has played both, I have to say that the original P3 was a lot more challenging. It made the tactics menu something you have to actually use. With the P4 battle system implemented in P3P, it just became too easy since the enemies themselves remained balanced for the original P3 system. I will say that I ran direct control all the way through P3P and P4 however.

Also @niedude, P3 and P4 have a neat little feature of their EXP system. The larger the level difference between a party member and an enemy, the larger of a multiplier the EXP gets multiplied by. So at the same level, its a x1. But if you're lover leveled than the enemy you get a boosted amount of EXP, while if you're higher leveled than the enemy, you earn less. Also, the less party members you have, the more EXP each member gets. The EXP it displays on the after-battle screen is simply the MC's personal share of the total EXP, which gets divided evenly between the party members then gets each members individual level multiplier applied.

In short, the bigger the level gap, the faster they'll catch up if you just slot them into your party. With dedicated training, you can have them up to speed pretty quickly.

@Ysa, I freaking love FFXII. My favorite of the whole series. I hope you enjoy it. ^^

I always did notice the level multiplier, but I didn't know that it scaled to the point you are suggesting. Its good to know, since I think this time around (Im going through new playthroughs on both P games) I think Ill be diversifying my team a lot more. Especially since I never got to use Ken and the dog in P3 that much, nor did I use Naoto barely at all in P4. (mostly because my first ever playthrough of P4 culminated in me finishing a P game for the first time with P4 Bad Ending. I also tried to have some immersion and cleared the Heaven dungeon in one single in game day... Meaning I didn't use any other team besides my standart Mc + Yusuke + Yukiki + Teddie/Chie)

@Ysa, I freaking love FFXII. My favorite of the whole series. I hope you enjoy it. ^^

I love FF12 too, its just a shame that the game's plot is so disinteresting.

I also wish the remake (forget the name) and its changes were implemented in the original. Controlling your summons and a less abusive leveling system would be greatly appreciated.

29th March 2012, 8:47 PM
Anyone ever try a three-party run? I'm trying it for the next playthrough.

Bear-sona run? You can only choose two people to go with you through the dungeons/bosses.

Teddy and Yukiko all the way from start to finish might be possible. I'll use Chie until I get the bear.

Back OT: So, following the Phantom Of the Opera dude's lead (Joshua?), we don't have to be in costume for the party, right?
Back up costumes even crazier than what we got on now?! This would be a good time to change outfits, or...evening wear? Around when the dance starts. Hope everyone makes it back to the dorms.

29th March 2012, 8:52 PM
Please, I use just the Protag half the time.

I feel like we had this conversation before... in the older DT.
Maybe we should try some new material?

29th March 2012, 11:09 PM
@VB: Joshua's in costume, but he'll be changing into regular clothes before the court. Because you try fighting in a suit, it's highly impractical, and Joshua doesn't feel like ruining his best clothes.

30th March 2012, 1:52 PM
Well, I don't have any schoolwork, and I'll have constant access to the internet this afternoon, so I can garuntee a post later today or tonight by my time.
It's 7:49 AM were I am, so use that as you will.

30th March 2012, 4:46 PM
And then Zinc and I were in the same time zone. All the better to [worship him in person/be an easily-reachable target/have awesome tea parties], I guess.

I see we've noticed how P4A continues to look more awesome and that FFXII is a greatly under-appreciated game. Forget the complaints about the battle system - it wasn't that bad at all, and the superior story, dialogue and setting more than make up for its shortcomings.

Anyway, while we're stalling (our conversation's kinda directed at Clarise ATM, might jump in anyway), let's take a head-count of who's dressed as who for the party, so that we don't tread all over each other's toes. Or we could have repeat costumes. Dunno. Anyway, the decided ones are:

Halberd - Cap'n of the Black Cat Pirates
Lace - Demon-ninja.... thing
Ciara - Succubus Witch
Clarise - Cowboy(?) With goggles.
Mana - Mad Hatter (tentative). Possibly a cat.
Sofiya - Everything. ALL OF THE COSTUMES.
Joshua - Le Fantôme de l'Opéra
Sigmund - Vampire. Classic flavor.
Russell - Musketeer
Snow - French nobleman
Levin - Eff costumes. Going casual.

30th March 2012, 6:16 PM
I play musical chair with my characters. I switch them around all the time because I like them to be within the same level range. That goes for anything with a level system. Unless they're extras that I have just to have a full collection of the characters, their level have to be close. I've never caught the FF bug. I've played a few but I've never beaten any... I do like the game series I just can't push myself to beat it.

Russell is a Musketeer. Ciara other 'trick' costume unless I'm mistaken is Theresa minus the hair because she couldn't find a blonde wig.

30th March 2012, 8:59 PM
I like FFXII's battle system so far. That's always what makes or breaks a game for me, if the gameplay and battles are enjoyable. I do like how it prompts you to make back-up saves in dungeons in case of problems. Not that I use them, lol. I'm hoping the plot lets me go do other things soon; just got on Leviathan.

Snow's costume is more suitable for a Ren fest, being a French nobleman... and a cat-boy. Is Mana going to keep his cat ears too?

30th March 2012, 9:06 PM
I'm tight for time, with the thesis delivery deadline coming up. Levin is at the party in a casual outfit, feeling superior to all you childish maggots. And fearing for his life because of last night's Court.
I'll post properly when there's plot development, but I really can't invest time into more descriptive fluff posts right now, sorry guys :/

30th March 2012, 10:09 PM
Haha, Levin more superior than us I think not. He's going to a Costume Party without a costume. And just going to wear casual clothing. He's going to look like an uptight guy who can't have fun.

30th March 2012, 10:28 PM
... Which is exactly what he is. :P

30th March 2012, 10:37 PM
Russell is a bit like that too but he still a kid can get pull into doing things by others. Honestly if I didn't make a reason he be a loner and not dress up or go to the party at all. Which is why I think Levin and Russell will either be good friends or rivals.

30th March 2012, 10:49 PM
Haha, Levin more superior than us I think not. He's going to a Costume Party without a costume. And just going to wear casual clothing. He's going to look like an uptight guy who can't have fun.

30th March 2012, 11:08 PM
Hah, got in a post before Zincman did! Of course... his "I'll definitely post tonight" could've been a ruse to get our asses posting... Meh, was going to post today anyway so doesn't matter.

Oh, right, Levin's not gonna wear a costume? I truly, truly pity him then, y'know.

All this talk about P4... I'll buy it next week. Promise. Oh and I'm one of those who liked the no-control battle system, by the way. Makes it more difficult and fast phased, both of which I like.

... My English feels like it's all over the place today. Strange. Better get back to work and then to bed quickly.

30th March 2012, 11:10 PM
And then Sofiya molested Mana. It was the best day ever, but for GH... It was Saturday morning (I believe that's right, GH being Finnish.)

30th March 2012, 11:55 PM
Yup, already Saturday here. An ordinary one. With lots of molestations, gore and muffins.

Because muffins make everything better.

EDIT: Oh, and so, Ciara's evil plan was to dress up as Theresa in front of JP to mock her/him/the both of them? ... I wanna see the fight that escalates into. The Shadow Self boss gonna be confused.

31st March 2012, 4:28 AM
... Well, even if you didn't know Theresa, that kinda crosses the line from not caring/black comedy into Dude, Not Funny! (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DudeNotFunny) I mean, she's in a permanent coma.

"For you, the day Ignatova graced your body was the most important day of your life. But for me... it was Saturday."

Oh, god. I'm not even sure how to react to that. I'm beginning to think that Mana won't be able to make it to the dance... Also, the stray kitten thing combined with the cat ears combined with military shenanigans = Schrodinger from Hellsing (http://grypscelsus.deviantart.com/art/Schrodinger-s-Catboy-50355309).

31st March 2012, 10:32 PM
It's not just funny, it's hilarious. And now that JP technically isn't really a member of 'the team' in Ciara's eyes, he's just another potentially dangerous unstable factor.

But Ciara's not going to be wearing it any more, because those lovely backless strapless dresses with slits in the legs are buggers to get into and girls like Ciara would just want to put them on ASAP. So instead, the fake costume gets a mannequin. And a lovely face drawn on said mannequin (XP). So, you know.


Let us all worship Boss Elizabeth, for she is God made fighter.

1st April 2012, 6:29 AM
Obvious April Fools joke is obvious Zinc.

1st April 2012, 6:48 AM
JK's right Zinc, that's waaaay too see-through a lie. I am disappoint.

But thanks for reminding me it's April Fools' Day.

1st April 2012, 7:34 AM
Mm-hm, and I'm going to be the first Asian Doctor Who. An in-RPG trick post would have been more believable, especially if the joke was subtle.

Well, I honestly believe in Zinc. He's a man of the finest moral fiber and gentlemanly character. He'd never lie to us. And so, as our beloved leader is leaving, we should honor his memory by peacefully electing a new GM and continuing. Quick, someone stab the treacherous vizier!

1st April 2012, 1:38 PM
Well, Zinc just sent me a PM, and it's detailed some things for me, so don't bite his head off. I think that everybody who sees this as 'just another April Fools' joke' needs to have their head examined. It's not nice, just because it's April 1st, to trivialise somebody else's life.

I am quite displeased with a large proportion of you.

He has named me as his successor, and told me to carry on where he left off. In line with Zinc's Last Request, Randy is to be 'taken out back and shot like a rabid dog.' As such, Randy will be bitten by a rabid dog and actually catch rabies, thusly ensuring symbolism. Liza will be the one to do the deed, completely differentiating her from Miyuki whom, frankly, she was way too similar to.

But there are a few things that Zinc did in his time that I frankly don't like, so here's the skinny:
- As in P1/P2, every character can now hold up to five Personas at a time, with differing levels of compatibility. Zinc made Randy special, but I believe that all characters should be equal.
- Velvet Room has a part to play, with Igor and new assistant Marie providing services such as Persona Fusion. Zinc has omitted a Persona staple.
- Apathy Syndrome makes you into a demon. Theresa will come back as our first recurring villain, hellbent on the annihilation of humanity.
- The Court of Miracles is an alternate universe as opposed to an hour out of place or whatever BS Zinc was spinning. Seriously.
- There are alternate universe versions of each of the characters- these are referred to as Z-Types. Unlike Shadows, the Z-Types are humans too.
- There is now the option for 'Negotiation' with Shadows, in which your characters can gain new weapons, armour and Personas. Alternatively, the demon could join your character's army.
- Army System: Each character is now in command of a squad of loyal demons and Shadows, which can be deployed as they see fit. Each unit has a specific function to fulfil.
- Ms. Halls will be killed off and replaced by a real Succubus.
- Given how the new Persona fighting game only has 13 characters, the cast must fall in with this number. We will have a vote to determine which characters get dropped, and which can stay. Certain characters of plot significance will have to stay, but hopeless minor side characters like Mana or Joshua are easy pickings.
- Because nobody cares, Russell will be written out of the story.

I will write my first post in-game as GM shortly, but rest assured that these changes will be ironed out within the post. If I see any more GRAVE ERRORS within Zinc's posts, I will add my planned changes to the list.

- Due to the horrifically skewed gender ratio, JP will go through gender reassignment surgery and will now be known as LaBarbara Pereira. It was decided based on who the 'least masculine/most feminine' male character was unanimously decided to be by a sample of voters.
- After another vote conducted among the forum lurkers, the characters that will be eliminated are: Joshua, Russell, Clarise, Halberd, Izzy, Jones and Randy. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. Feel free to PM me with ideas for your death scenes.
- Given her newly elevated importance, Ciara H. Wright is now of the Judgment Arcana.
- In a crossover with the Mass Effect series, the Moon Arcana will now be represented by Jacqueline Nought, better known as 'Subject Zero' or 'Jack'. The character's role is closely tied into the main storyline.
- The nickname 'Cinders' for Sigmund is canon, as is spin-off saga "Snow and Cinders." Talks are in place to create an entirely new spin-off RPG set around the duo, with the rest of the cast being shoehorned into various film noir stereotypes. Ysavvryl and Blivsey are expected to be proactive in proving their characters' worth so the spin-off deal can be signed. It is still to be determined whether or not Melpomene and Hua Po will appear, and whether or not they will be wearing suits.
- Because things were headed that way, Liza and Miyuki are now conjoined twins.
- All heterosexual relationships are hereby outlawed, as Zinc's homophobia held us back greatly. We are to be the most progressive RPG on the forums, and to do so we must get rid of all this 'men and women together forever' nonsense.
- In line with the above rule, all characters are required to have at least one romantic scene with their Z-Type counterpart.
- Due to a universal wardrobe malfunction, all male characters no longer wear shirts. Combined with some of the above changes, this will enhance the RP's yaoi rating by up to 1000%, drastically increasing the female readerbase by up to 9000%.
- Because Zinc was an idiot, the Crimson Beasts will once again be known as Free Candy. Miyuki will join as lead singer, necessitating the involvement of Liza, who will stand there looking boring and useless.
- All players should fill out a more detailed SU form, which includes Date of Birth, Star Sign, Blood Type and Evolved Persona.
- Every player should also write a completely fresh SU form including the above fields for their Z-Type counterpart.
- Federal agents are now circulating Quartermannistan, investigating events. If your characters begin acting in any way deemed 'suspicious,' they will be removed for testing. Your back-up character will also automatically be grabbed by federal agents ASAP.

Posts are now in real-time. However, if you sacrifice post quality to meet real-time demands, then you will be eliminated. If you do not post in real-time, then your character will suffer from an existential breakdown. This is a strenuous challenge to separate the worthy from those who are not.

Also, it is QUARTERMANNISTAN. Let that be an end to it all.

1st April 2012, 2:06 PM
You forgot aliens. No plot is truly sucky before it involves aliens.

1st April 2012, 4:02 PM
And Snow will be replaced with his alternate realty self (the blind swordsman android), who will kill all of the characters who are being cut.

1st April 2012, 5:24 PM

1st April 2012, 5:56 PM
Because Zinc was seriously too slow about this, we're going to be speeding up the rate at which we off all you little buggers. As such, all players should also have posted complete sign-ups (including Z-types) for at least two backup characters at all times. Anyone without a ready sign-up when their character is killed off will find themselves permanently ejected from the RP.

At least we're making the obvious troll obvious rather than letting something be taken the wrong way. Better have a few cheap jokes than let the Joker make *real* fools of us all.

1st April 2012, 6:26 PM
Are you people trying to make fun of the work I'm doing here?

GH, if you're so enthused about the aliens, then make Sofiya an alien. She's already mostly there. You just need the revelation. Although, if she is an alien, she will be exterminated by federal agents, who from now on will be circulating Quartermannistan, gathering information about the mysterious incidents currently taking place there.

Blivsey, I'm not trolling you. In fact, I'm offended that anyone could say anything like this.

Now, does anybody know Zinc's password so I can edit the new details into the first post? I ask him to do it, but he's not responding. Probably because he 'doesn't give a **** any more'. What a douchebag.

1st April 2012, 6:35 PM
Alright, so from here on out, Sofiya's an alien. All that insanity/stupidity she has displayed? Just a ruse. You humans are so easy to fool. She has become friends with you all just to get easy access to your brain. And now, on the night of Halloween, she shall carry out her plan to suck out the brains of you mortals, thus ridding the Earth from the only people who could have protected it against her homeplanet's attack. Soon, the Shadows and Apathy Syndrome shall be the least of your worries. Planet Bunny**** is taking over, *****es. Prepare your ovens, for no bunny shall be left unbaked.

Mana will survive though. Every alien needs a genetically altered pet.

1st April 2012, 6:43 PM
Now you're just mocking me. Tone those superpowers down or Sofiya is out. That plotline is denied with immediate effect.

Also, Mana has a genetic disease meaning that he'll die if exposed to aliens. In that case, he has twenty minutes left to live as of the last post in the RP thread. So sad.

However, I do have an alternative quest up for grabs. Like how P1 had the standard SEBEC route, but also the Snow Queen route, I'm offering two choices to players:

BEAST route- We carry on as we are now, exactly the same as before. We'd just be doing what that unfeeling douche wants us to do.

Dread Queen route- A unique new quest that completely changes the way the world works- similar to the critically acclaimed Read At Your Own Risk, by TheSequelReturns.

All dead players will be revived for the Dread Queen route.

Let's begin voting now.
BEAST Route- 0
Dread Queen Route- ∞

The GM vote is worth infinite points, so we're going with the Dread Queen route. Buckle up, players!

1st April 2012, 6:48 PM
They aren't superpowers. They're plotpoints. As a GM, you should know the difference.

But hmph, fine. There will be no brain sucking, but planet Bunny****'s invasion is gonna stay. You can kill Mana, Sofiya has lots of backup pets *looks at the list* Sig's up next. He can be a big black teddy bear.

EDIT: After a short manipulation discussion session with our new GM, Sofiya is now the final boss and is allowed her brain-suckage powers. So my earlier threat still stands, mortals.

1st April 2012, 8:04 PM
I told you guys to stab her. Now look where we are. Her power is too great. The eternal slaves of the Infernal Dread Queen (May She Rule Forever). Now buck up, the inevitable Résistance has emerged!

Mana can't die because he's already dead. He drowned when the ship sank, and everything after that point was a delusional fantasy!

... Aaaand we're not going to get anything done today, are we. Especially since Zinc disappeared. Unless he decides to come back and join La Résistance.

1st April 2012, 8:08 PM
Wait, what?! Can someone explain what's going on? Zinc's dead, an incoming alien invasion, a new evil/nicer GM? What do I have to do to not get my brain sucked out? Who's dying?!

1st April 2012, 8:11 PM
Everyone's dying.

Let's survive.

1st April 2012, 8:15 PM
Mana has actually transmogrified into a dog, we've decided.

Focus groups responded positively to this change, and it was decided that Mana's negative attitude and gender-confusedness made him the best candidate for species reassignment. We're going to have go over some things, you understand.

The only thing we have left now is a robot party member. Ahoo. Who will be upgraded? I think Sigmund would have been a perfect candidate if not for the 'Snow and Cinders' franchise deal, as giving him cybernetics would negatively effect focus tests.

The Résistance will be crushed before it even starts.

Zinc doesn't care. He's let you down, he's let me down. He's let himself down.

In his stead, I will try my best to salvage this dreadful RPG, where informality and rebelliousness are rife. I run a tight ship here.

1st April 2012, 8:27 PM
Yes, concentrate on destroying Wordy and her evil, evil regime. Meanwhile, I will rule from the shadows and slowly turn this RPG into a sex-fest. My plans are already in motion, and Sofiya's brain-suckage has been turned into... something else. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LampshadedDoubleEntendre) Hon hon hon.

A dog, you say? Alright, then he can reclaim his position as Sofiya's pet/literal lapdog. As for the robot, I nominate Halberd/Halberb/Halby/the big dude.

1st April 2012, 8:30 PM
Hey what's going on in here...

... continue.

Good Lord, every time I vanish for a day or two I come back to find that everything I thought I knew about this RP has completely changed while I was gone.

Dread Queen Route- ∞ +1

1st April 2012, 8:33 PM
Mana's like Koromaru? Can he hold knives in his mouth?!

Uh, it has been a while, being stuck in this rut. If only we can get to the dance, then it'll be a cinch to wing it until Zinc returns.

Wordy, you seem to be the closest person to our GM. So..

Do you think it'd be too much of a stretch if one of us just went into the gymnasium and kind of set things up? I don't mean, bunnying or anything. Nothing major, just enough to give us some direction.

Or, we can just goof off here with our characters in wacky scenarios! Spin-off just to kill time.

EDIT Oh, woops. I'll toss in a vote for DQ then. O-Onward?

1st April 2012, 8:34 PM
Awesome things are happening, Sequel. Awesome things. It's like a mutiny, except not because Zinc claims he doesn't care. I predict everything will be back to normal tomorrow/when Zinc doesn't need a makeshift reason to delay his post anymore, though. 8<

And oh, right, the voting. Add another ∞ to the DQ route.

EDIT: @VM: You silly thing, Wordy isn't the closest to the GM, she IS the GM now. Get on with the times.

1st April 2012, 8:46 PM
Nobody is posting until their Z-type SUs are posted here and approved by me. If you want to post, VB, get on writing up Z-Lace's SU. The SU form is the same as Zinc's, with some additions that can be found on the next page.

Also, because I'm bored, the next person to post will die horribly. I think that one of the rafters in the gymnasium will fall on their head, crushing their skull. So, you know. Pretty big risk.

In other news, pink is fashionable, so we're going to have to get rid of all other colours from our characters' ensembles.

LOL, ignore that troll. I'm in charge here.


1st April 2012, 9:13 PM
Zinc! You're back! La Résistance lives on! The Dread Queen shall fall, and there shall be much rejoicing!

This all happened because you underestimated the treacherous vizier's treacherousness.

1st April 2012, 9:47 PM
Don't be confused, dear.

I seriously doubt that Zinc has the mental capacity to continue as GM. He appears to be... easily confused. Bless.


1st April 2012, 10:00 PM
This is going a bit far...


1st April 2012, 10:09 PM

I for one am enjoying this.


1st April 2012, 10:15 PM
I enjoyed it for a while, but then it got repetitive and boring.

Can't you two like, mud wrestle or something?


1st April 2012, 10:29 PM
Shadow Joshua's theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xA66yy2FmTE), according to the ideas I sent to Zinc.

1st April 2012, 10:43 PM
Alright, alright. Lets get back to normalcy, or whatever passes for it around here.


So on that note, I'm waiting for Zinc to post the party before I do.

Unless he wants to drop some details so I can get started. Please?

1st April 2012, 11:27 PM
Shadow Josh's theme sounds kinda Castlevania-y to me. I like!

I didn't have much to do with Snow before the party either, unless Sig or Clarise wants to talk some more.

2nd April 2012, 5:46 PM
Sorry, dears. It appears that this coup was unsuccessful. But there are always more opportunities. Ho hum.

I maintain that all of my improvements would make this vastly better, but I suppose that that is why the option is available to make my own RP... eventually. With all the aliens and Z-Types and armies that my heart desires.

Now stop procrastinating, Zinc. Jeez. (April 1st was just an excuse for him to be lazy. Douchebag.)


I'll Megidolaon all of you.

2nd April 2012, 6:07 PM
That's her finisher?! Oh, come on there's got to be a way... It doesn't look like you can evade it. At all. That's messed up Wordy. Well, no use in saving this thing any longer: I think this covers it.


*Raises Omnipotent Orb*

2nd April 2012, 6:49 PM
That's an insta kill attack. According to common Fighting Game lore, it is a move pulled off by an impressive combination of button presses that, in order to be successfully executed, requires careful timing and a precise activation. It is usually easy to evade and costly to miss as well.

A lot of fighting games have Insta-kills. They're flashy, cool, and the most blatant examples of Awesome but Impractical ever.

2nd April 2012, 6:49 PM
What you fail to realize is that if you bring the Omnipotent Orb to the Elizabeth battle, she totally ignores her normal pattern and will Megidolaon you for 9999 damage EVERY SINGLE TURN. And Almighty damage is the one thing the orb doesn't stop.

Still waiting on Zinc I guess. I suppose I could drop a small scene in while I wait.

2nd April 2012, 8:10 PM
No need. I posted. Finally.
It isn't the best, but it get what I need done, done.
I hate these first posts in an RP... but as soon as I get rolling, I'm rolling.

2nd April 2012, 8:10 PM
You were saying?

So, for one night only, the Crimson Beasts are Sex Bob-omb (1, 2, 3, 4!)?

Will Randy being mute affect his Court performance?

2nd April 2012, 8:13 PM
I think I ninja'd you there.

Yep, pretty much. The most f'd up Sex Bob-Omb ever, but Sex Bob-Omb none the less.
Probably a bit. His bravado's completely gone though. He's to avoid talking for the next couple of weeks, so not only will he not be speaking in the RP, but he's been forced by the principal to cease the concerts. There will be no more at Bellow High. He hasn't broken the news to Snow, Phil, Ned, or Izzy yet. They think he'll only be out for a coupld of days, a week at most. Because that's what he sent them in a text.

2nd April 2012, 8:53 PM
Hey Zinc, you wouldn't happen to know where Izzy is and what he's up to would you?

2nd April 2012, 8:56 PM
Izzy's sneaking around not in costume. Just kinda stalking around in the shadows. But he forgot to turn off his goggles, so he should be easy to find.
At least one person will have seen him and complimented his costume, despite his lack of one.

2nd April 2012, 9:02 PM
So Izzy is inadvertently dressed up as some sort of spy? Neat.

Him stalking the shadows actually works out perfectly for what I have in mind. ^^

2nd April 2012, 9:11 PM
Miyuki X Izzy progresses! Despite my natural distaste for heterosexual relationships in fictional settings, it is still in the running for my OTP.

And I get to unleash all the Ciara biatch that I've been saving up. Let's dress up mannequins like potato people and parade them in front of their ex-boyfriend's dorm rooms! Yay! Go us!


Love you guys.

2nd April 2012, 9:13 PM
He's inadvertantly dressed up as Simon, but a spy works as well.

2nd April 2012, 9:17 PM
I thought Izzy was always inadvertently dressed up as Simon.

That, and the light-up goggles remind me of this (http://i2.listal.com/image/346110/936full-splinter-cell-poster.jpg).

2nd April 2012, 9:18 PM
Eh, both work.
Whatevs man. Whatevs.

3rd April 2012, 12:05 AM
And with that, JP probably intends to beat the crap out of whoever he thinks is responsible for the mannequin. Probably Mana. Or Joshua. Or Ciara. In which case he'll beat Joshua.

3rd April 2012, 1:48 AM
Ngh, I hate mood whiplash. I prefer confused-helpless Mana to murderous Mana. Posted, but I guess the red-headed Japanese kid isn't going to the party. Ah well. If anything important happens, I can get him over there pretty quick.

Eh, hooray for conflict!

3rd April 2012, 1:53 AM
Damnit Nyhiil you ninjaed me!

I posted. Cool character development and drama is cool.

3rd April 2012, 7:37 AM
Oh come on Niihyl. Don't be a pussy.
We don't have to get angry about it.
It's just a hi-larious prank on Halloween. 83d

3rd April 2012, 9:15 AM
And then Joshua wet himself in fear. Probably. He has NO idea what's going on, but I'm assuming he can hear the music faintly. I'll write a post tonight, and I'm going to need a doctor from all the whiplash.

3rd April 2012, 3:50 PM
When someone close to you dies, it really f*cks you up. Dancing on someone's grave and making fun of grieving loved ones... well that's a dick move. I don't think getting pissed was too unbelievable. Hell, if someone did that to me or one of my friends, I would hurt them with pleasure. Well, I'd want to, then I'd cool off and start thinking straight. Mana isn't quite as sane as I am. Also, he has access to supernatural powers and a little girl that's like an anti-conscience (devil's advocate?).

Poor Josh. He's just kinda caught in the middle of all this, huh. And looks like Sig is joining the Dairy Dread Queen. Or just playing peacekeeper, but whatevs. And so, the Persona squad was split, and the plot of Persona BOSS Arena began.

3rd April 2012, 4:09 PM
I never thought I'd have to say this but:

Went and made everything all 'baw' before things should go 'baw'.
Well, let's see if you people get over the damn petty action when I throw the Court at you. Honestly...
I just have one question:
"How does one handle an obvious troll? Do exactally what they want, or ignore them?"

3rd April 2012, 4:11 PM
But she doesn't have a grave to dance on. Which is kinda the point.

Ah, this is too cool and fun ♥

Eh, split? Nobody knows who it was yettttt
and they never will
They can sling around disingenuous accusations all day long. They can think all they like.

And if she or her mate feel threatened... She'll sear the flesh from your bones. And then tear your skeleton to pieces. So fun


This is adorable.

3rd April 2012, 4:25 PM
You might think it's adorable, but all I see is a chick molesting a kitten.

3rd April 2012, 6:37 PM
That picture reminds me of Ciara's relationship with Joshua. I can't tell who's the "he" here though.

@Zinc: Don't pay any mind? Whistle the Deadly Premonition song? Gorge on Häagen-Dazs? You know I'm being ignorant.

I'll wait another day or two for Kiruria to post. Come on dude. If not, then I'll just write Lace around him to the party with Russell and see what's going on with the others. I don't want to be stuck in the daytime with the dance half-over.

3rd April 2012, 6:38 PM
Eh, looking back on it with five more hours of sleep, I may have go edit my post to word things better in a bit. Will definitely add a few more paragraphs to move Sig to the party when Josh responds, provided it doesn't merit any significant new action.

Also, you're obviously missing out on the most underrepresented animal in terms of cuteness:

3rd April 2012, 6:40 PM
Sadly, Bliv, your link isn't showing up.

3rd April 2012, 11:07 PM
It is now, and that is the most adorable lantern fish ever.

Sorry to hold Bliv, Wordy, Nie and Nii up, I'll post tomorrow at some stage. Tired as hell.

3rd April 2012, 11:10 PM
Of course, just look at that face:


Don't you just want to hug him? <3

Hey Zinc, should I wait for a response from you or do you want to just give me a few Izzy responses and let me handle it in my next post?

4th April 2012, 1:25 AM
I've got this TSR, don't worry.
I'll have it up later tonight. I don't have anything else to do.
I just need a shower, then I'm on it like flies on ****.
Maybe a bit to crude for the situation?
How about 'white on rice'?... Sounds double offensive to Miyuki if you ask me.
You know what I mean.

I got it!
"Like Ciara on a wanted poster Josh a cross chocolate truffles."

Just for ya'lls pleasure the next post will include the sentence:

"She's gonna get shanked by Jerk Pants." A moment later "Is that racist? It sounds like it should be racist."

EDITEDIT: I lied. I totally lied. had an assignment posted on line and didn't finish until just now. I'll start and hope I finish it tonight, but no promises.

4th April 2012, 9:43 AM
Short, but it got everything I needed to say out. Meh. Whiplashy though, it goes from him practically drooling over Ciara to being very very scared of the big man in his face with his sword out not a euphemism.

4th April 2012, 2:24 PM
Not really that short, if you look back at UtGoG.
We had some short posts back then.
Yours was perfectly acceptable in length.

EDIT: You know you're tired when you look at a correctly spelled 'acceptable' and say: "How silly am I? That should be a 'p' not a 'b'."

4th April 2012, 5:30 PM
Sorry about my lack of posts. I'll work on it today, since Levin could use some interaction so he won't appear (even more) out of nowhere.

4th April 2012, 10:53 PM
I feel like I'm back on a roll.

6th April 2012, 2:02 AM


Now starring uber-Thanatos, with all the elements!
And Diarama and permanent Invigorate and trapping opponents in Tarot cards and OH MY.

Also, it is proven impossible for Elizabeth to actually lose. Ever.

In other news, everything Jihl Nabaat says in FFXIII-2 was rubbing off on me. And I was listening to the Charlie's Angels theme whilst writing that post... It's weird.

Oh, and they've announced Persona 3: FES for PS2 Classics on PS3 for $10. Yay!


6th April 2012, 2:43 AM
Alrighty then, while Wordy has posted a picture that reminds me of MySpace stickers and FaceBook updates that are desperately trying to get attention for somthing witty someone else has written, I have decided somthing that needs to be implimented imediately.
Namely, the abolition of the Water and Earth elements.
Seriously. No one uses them, and I will never use them on a Shadow. If you have one of these as a weakness or strength, remove it imideately, and post your new sheet.

6th April 2012, 2:45 AM
I dont even know any SMT games that uses those elements.
Is there something wrong with me?

6th April 2012, 2:47 AM
No, there isn't anything wrong with you.
Persona 1 and 2 used them, that I know, but we don't need them at all. I think they were removed for a reason. Because they aren't needed.

EDIT: Also, while editing, I'd like those who have to edit to post their new Strengths and Weaknesses here.
We're also around level 35 right now to use the regular Persona scale, so if you guys want to look over your skills and power up or down accordingly, also post that here for me to approve (because I don't want to have to go back to the DT and look at everything.)

6th April 2012, 3:09 AM
They are necessary... I just can't think why right now.

So I looked back and Ciara's weaknesses were Dark and Earth, so I'll change that, shall I?

XVIII. Ciara H. Wright | Moon Arcana
Persona: Kitsune
Weapon: Butterfly Swords
Primary Element: Physical
Slash: -
Strike: -
Pierce: -
Fire: -
Ice: -
Lightning: -
Wind: Weak
Light: Abs
Dark: Weak

Sonic Punch (Kitsune transforms into a large fist. Good against larger foes.)
Kill Rush (Kitsune fans its tails out behind it and charges through a crowd of enemies, damaging and scattering them.)
Fatal End (Kitsune charges the enemy with its body streamlined for impact)
Counterstrike (Medium chance of Kitsune's body reforming to absorb impacts and reflect damage back)
Skull Cracker (Kitsune takes the enemy's head in her jaws and tries to crush it)
Evil Smile (Terrifies all nearby opponents with red, flashing eyes)
Rebellion (Increases likelihood of critical hits)
Coup de Grâce (Finisher)

Power Charge
Gigantic Fist


6th April 2012, 3:42 AM
Also, were did everyone go?
It, like, died here.
Niihyl? TSR? IF?
Bliv? Ysa? Kuriria?
GH? JK? Marbly? SoS?

6th April 2012, 3:52 AM
GH is settling to his or her new place, and will be afk most of the time

As for everyone else...
Easter vk?

6th April 2012, 3:57 AM
Or caught up in writing? ClicheStorm has hooked me again (so much to do with Nimbasa). Actually, today was my off/gaming day of the week. It did get weirdly quiet in here.

Level 35 then. I should go check on other healers and see what to adjust.

6th April 2012, 5:22 AM
Had minor things to do over the last two days, otherwise haven't had much to contribute to conversation/game. Also been playing Persona2:IS and being generally annoyed at being sent to run around in circles.

Both of Sigmund's weaknesses were the ones that have been removed - changed his weakness to light, removed his wind resistance and scaled his skills against the ally personas in P3 and P4. Revised edition:

Persona Element: Fire
Weapon Element: Strike
Phys: -
Slash: -
Strike: -
Pierce: -
Fire: Str
Ice: -
Lightning: -
Wind: -
Light: Wk
Dark: -

Marakukaja (Radius ~3m)
Red Wall
Blazing Burst (Fire-based Tarukaja mutation)
Maragi (Radius ~2m)

Power Charge
Maragion (good call, Niihyl)
Fire Boost

6th April 2012, 6:06 AM
Eh, I was waiting for Wordy. I'll post now. Also, Batman: Arkham City and SSX were 29.99 as opposed to 59.99, so I picked those up.

Hey, Earth and Water are pretty standard elements. If you want ridiculous, there was a Nuclear element. Also, the Digital Devil Saga games had Earth and Water. One of the main characters was earth-element.

I'll post a new status here in a bit, probably changing Water weakness to Fire, since fire repels evil darkness. Will have to look around for skills, since 'Lvl 35' is pretty vague in Persona's wild list of available skills. As Bliv astutely said, it's probably best to base skills on allies from P3/4. So, multi-target Ma- skills, second level attack skills like Zionga, Agilao, and Bufula at this point too; most of your allies in the Persona games pick up second-level attacks by their 20s to 30s.

Also of note, it's Maragion, rather than Maragilao, isn't it?

P.S.: Finally, enough of the Juan userbar. I was getting tired of that.

6th April 2012, 9:16 AM
I was spending my week in essay hell, sorry Zincy. But why was I last on that list

Joshua was neutral to water and earth anyway, so his SU doesn't change. That said, I'm adding something to Aria, so that Shiva can power it up to Mediarama strength, mmkay?

XII. Joshua Sands | Tower Arcana
Persona: Shiva, Lord of the Dance
Weapon: Fencing Saber
Primary Element: Ice
Slash: -
Strike: -
Pierce: -
Fire: Wk
Ice: Str
Lightning: Wk
Wind: Str
Light: -
Dark: -

Diamond Dust – An exceptionally bitter, cold wind blows across the area, inflicting weak Ice element damage to all enemies. However, it also has the effect of slowing them as their joints become much stiffer because of the cold, and it is difficult for them to move. Slightly weaker than Mabufu.
Aria – A tender, sweet song soothes Joshua's allies, and bolsters their spirits, refreshing their stamina and health. As strong as Media. Joshua can perform it alone, or with Shiva to make it as strong as Mediarama.
Ice Blade – A basic close combat attack that Shiva!Joshua will use as a last resort when enemies are getting too close. Shiva!Joshua's sword freezes temporarily, and becomes sharp as a diamond, allowing him to cut down a nearby enemy.
Bracing Breeze – A strong, cold wind blows behind the party, forcing them to strengthen and fortifying their defenses as their muscles tense because of the wind.
Tailwind - A light breeze blows behind the party, invigorating their spirits, and increasing their attack power.
Frigid Blast - This allows Joshua to take the offence a bit. Usually Shiva performs this alone, but Joshua has been learning to do it himself. The user slashes his sword in an X, leaving a trail of ice. They then push their hand to the centre of the X, causing the ice to break into shards, and batter the foe. Weaker than Bufula, but can cause agility loss like Diamond Dust.

Energy Shower
Me Patra

6th April 2012, 11:41 AM
Levin: Asclepius, Chariot Arcana
Persona Element: Light
Weapon Element: Strike
Phys: -
Slash: -
Strike: -
Pierce: -
Fire: Str
Ice: Wk
Lightning: -
Wind: -
Light: Str
Dark: Wk

Hamaat (Asclepius' shield forms a circular barrier that protects the user from attacks up to and including Agilao/Bufula level. Must remain immobile while using it.)
Invigorate 2

Regenerate 2


If the party is set at around level 35, where does that put Levin? His Persona hasn't even manifested yet.

6th April 2012, 2:44 PM
Persona never really justified the whole thing of new members starting at a level it took the others half a year of training to reach...
So, I guess we wont either?
Sounds kinda cheap though

6th April 2012, 3:12 PM
Because he's so much better than everyone else, he'll be level 35 as well. 8D
Nah, if we can keep his skills at around 20 for the first night, and then go up from there, that would be better. It's better than not having anything though, right? *looks at the newbies from last time*

Also, SoS, in accordance to my third playthrough of Devil Survivor 2, you must change Shiva's name. He is now 'Shiva Lord of the Dance' and shall only be referenced to as such. There will be no abbreviation, or nickname. You must refer to him by the full title at all times.

EDIT: Marbly- you weren't here when we went over it last time, but to have Null, Repel, or Drain in any area, you must have two weaknesses to cover it.
I'm not sure about having Drain or Repel allowed on anybody yet, unless it's an upgrade from Null thanks to an ability. But for now, if you want to Null some Light, you need another weakness.

6th April 2012, 3:27 PM
Changed Null to Str, thanks ;)

And 20 sounds good. Wouldn't make sense to be on par with everyone else from the get-go.

6th April 2012, 3:55 PM
Okay, on checking game allies, Snow's skills should look more like this:

Snow Fields, Hanged Man

Neutral on all elements

Wordless Melody (ally skill boost)
Boomerang Boost

some upgrade to Wordless Melody

I noticed, he actually knows Amrita way early, but there's so many little status-recovery spells like Me Patra, Charmdi, and Posmundi when there hasn't been much use of status attacks in this game so far. And not knowing any attack spells yet balances that out, I think. And you suggested it, Zinc, so that too.

Yay for having Recarm! That'll be a big help if plans are still the same as when announced a while back. Or it'll be an excuse to KO people...

6th April 2012, 4:33 PM
We're here! There are people we have to take care of.

P3 FES is coming to PSN? For only $9.99? That's crazy! It's only been two months since I beat The Answer, but man, was that game long. With Persona 2: Eternal Punishment coming to JP and hopefully over here, I'll dive in one more time. Thanks for the update Wordy, I can't wait!
Persona 1-4 will be completed.

XVII. Lace Condor | Star Arcana
Persona: Saturnus
Weapon: Dual-Daggers
Primary Element: Fire
Slash: -
Strike: -
Pierce: -
Fire: Str
Ice: Wk
Lightning: - Wk
Wind: Str
Light: -
Dark: -

Fire Boost
Fire Break

Dodge Ice

I don't really know lvl. 35 skills on Persona. There are so many. Let me now what you think.

EDIT: I added another weakness to go match her strengths -- Lightning. Thanks! Fixed Maragion.

6th April 2012, 5:22 PM
VB, Lace needs another weakness to balance out her two strengths.

Got it Zincy. Can't tell if you're serious or not, but it's funnier your way.

6th April 2012, 7:03 PM
Maragion should be just Maragi at this point. Other than that, it looks fine.

I'm completely serious.
Go change that sheet up there, boy!

6th April 2012, 7:18 PM
Gah, sorry guys. I found out last night that I'm 5 days behind on Script Frenzy, since it apparently slipped my mind that its in April. So I entered panic mode and am now attempting to catch up on that. So I apologize if I vanish occasionally during this month.

Going to make a new chart, since my last one was balanced around lv. 15.

VIII. Miyuki Tachibana - Justice Arcana
Persona: Astraea
Weapon: Shield
Primary Element: Light
Slash: -
Strike: -
Pierce: Wk
Fire: -

Angelic Grace

6th April 2012, 8:09 PM
I'm completely serious.
Go change that sheet up there, boy!

Happy now? He'll now be referred to as that in ALL of my posts.

I'll probably post once Niihyl and Niedude do, unless they'd rather I do so first and have Joshua waltz off with Ciara.

Also, replaying Persona 4 on Normal, was Shadow Yukiko always this easy? I kind of curb-stomped her... Had an Archangel with Red Wall cast it on Chie, used Rakunda, Tarukaja and Sukukaja (the latter two on MC), used Berith for offense and kind of wrecked her in about four or five rounds. I don't remember her being that simple... I may have gotten lucky with some dodges though.

6th April 2012, 9:54 PM
Alright, so we're on our way to having our new charts. But we're still missing something... now what was it?
Oh, right.
How about you guys get on that? SoS, if you want to get somthing said, don't bother waiting, just chug along.

6th April 2012, 10:39 PM
I'll do that in the morning then. Because I'm a sleepy fella tonight.

7th April 2012, 12:45 AM
I completely forgot that I was supposed to get a post up too XO
Imma make JP get a little closer to Mana. It is kinda funny that he was the first one JP ever interacted heavily with (well, not counting his initial flirt with Terry...) and now hes going to be the first one to get along with JP after he's went all lone wolf.

But we'll see how it goes when I start making the post. JP kinda has a way of ignoring all plans I had laid out for him and kinda do his own thing once I start writting him. Its... kinda scary, actually.

7th April 2012, 6:30 PM
*pops in* Aw..... I don't was to research and update Russell's stat thingie (I have a bunch of skills written down bit they're not level specific)... But I'll get on it, right away. Also... I'm given Kiruria the weekend to reappear before I continue to the ball. Love her but I can't wait forever.

7th April 2012, 9:58 PM
Kiruria will be back soon. We can bring her along if she misses anything too major.

7th April 2012, 10:03 PM
Do you know she'll be back, or is this guess work?

7th April 2012, 10:42 PM
Kiruria's a girl? I'm just learning this now? Oh SoS, you silly man.

So, yeah, about that post this morning... Um... I overslept. Then I was out all afternoon. Then I got distracted playing Persona 4 all evening. Literally all evening. From 5 to about 10. Damn Contrarian King... First time I faced him, he used Rampage first turn, and killed EVERYONE except the MC. Second time around he didn't Rampage at all... The AI in this game is so weird. Posting time.

I don't watch MLP. Who's that, Fluttershy? Lady Raincorn? Oh, Lord Monicromicorn!

Zinc, I'm just being hopeful about her. I wish I knew. Halberd will get Agilao-ed right in the living room soon.

8th April 2012, 5:06 AM
That is Rainbow Dash, you uncultured swine.

I mean...
What? I don't watch it either. It's for girls... I definately don't own a Rainbow Dash toy and comb it's hair everyday. That's stupid.

8th April 2012, 5:25 AM
Hey, just keep those dolls, "figures" clean dude. Lollipops and neon-streaks.
It looks like another anime, I feel obligated to watch! Required reading/fan-girling over forthcoming.

8th April 2012, 6:33 AM
Hooray for MLP! Except the bloody fans are bloody everywhere, and some of them are quite aggravating. Which is true for all fandoms, of course. There's just a brony fad going around.

*Insert "I liked it before it was cool" joke here*

Okay, no, not really, I've only started watching it recently because there's this one creepily obsessed brony in my class who played the painfully catchy theme tunes during the entire band trip. Because colorful ponies save the world through friendship immediately turned me off when I first heard of it. And whatconformingtosocietydammit! It makes me nostalgic about good old Toonami stuff like the Powerpuff Girls and Samurai Jack though, so that's good.

Hey, just keep those dolls, "figures" clean dude

*Coughcoughcough* That sounded incredibly dirty when I read it. I'm not sure if it was intentional or not. The quotes make me think it was, but seriously.

Anyway, I have a post all written up. I'm just not sure if I should just post it or wait for niedude. Because Mana's awkwardly standing there waiting for JP to say something at the end, which works, but will delay any conversation by an extra post.

8th April 2012, 11:39 AM
"So, what lesson did you learn today?"

"Lesson? There wasn't any lesson. I was right all along, dammit!"

And that's why I watch it. It is not very conventional with it's morals at the end of the day.
"Hey, let's teach kids it's okay to lie for the sake of your friends and your livelihood, because life isn't always going to let you be Truthy McTrutherpants."

Don't worry VB, I can't very well get it dirty if I haven't taken it out of the box yet. I just comb motions over it's tail.

Also, totally post.
Never wait if you have it written, and doesn't absolutely require imput from another person first.

8th April 2012, 4:48 PM
Finally got around to making a post. Levin's so far behind in interpersonal relationships it's not even funny. Had him start interacting with the cast, and Sigmund sounds sane enough to begin with.

8th April 2012, 5:31 PM
Last post was short and not-that-great, and I honestly thought that Sigmund was just going to be boring for a while, but now I have an excuse to break out Tutorial Action Sigmund! For all your early-game exposition needs! Available at a store near you!

That is, once I get my SU for TSR's RP in. Acronyms FTW. That shouldn't take too long, though, so I'll wrap that up, grab lunch and then write out all a' Sigmund's explanatory jibba-jabba. I'll probably end up directing him to Wulfgard for final briefing and outfitting, just so's ya know, Zinc.

Do I spy a debate on the value of a certain pony-based cartoon in this RP thread, guyz?

(My official stance: It's a cool show from what I understand, but I don't want to get into it ATM. Watching the whole fad from an outside perspective is too amusing.)

8th April 2012, 7:06 PM

8th April 2012, 8:00 PM

Short post is short I know, but I don't really have much else to post at the moment I guess.

8th April 2012, 8:07 PM
Tee-hee. Joshua has a wonderful ace up his sleeve for if JP does decide to go after Ciara.

Meanwhile, Joshua's Boss Shadow Theme! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFWadiZkA_8)

I've had a couple of thoughts for Vs. Shadow Joshua (mainly Cyrus' theme from Platinum), but nothing concrete yet.

8th April 2012, 8:19 PM
The party cannon is the best cannon ever. <3

I recently got into MLP:FiM and... I can't look at Pinkie Pie without getting an uncontrollable urge to write something about Sofiya. I swear, the similarity...

Oh, Rarity can be Clarise. And Ciara's like Gilda or smthng. Miyuki's Flutter Shy. IdunnoabouttherestI'mlikefiveepisodesinlol.

Yeah imma go back to writing my SU naaaow D8

8th April 2012, 8:47 PM
Blivsey, TSR, and Marbly posted?

I'll get to writing another post now.

8th April 2012, 9:04 PM
I posted too... And niedude... Don't you love us Zinc? T_T

8th April 2012, 9:08 PM

8th April 2012, 9:20 PM
And I did it *again*! Twice in a day! And leaving Levin better informed but still confused! Poor guy - even the Temperance link is slightly off his rocker.

8th April 2012, 9:23 PM
Shadows = Bad Juju
Now and forever.

Sigmund should have been dressed as Morpheus.

8th April 2012, 10:17 PM
All parodying aside, that scene was pretty awesome.
Seriously, everyone's writing has gotten so much better, I feel like Im being left behind a bit here :P

8th April 2012, 11:33 PM

I feel so betrayed! What about that night under the bridge! We promised everything!

... I'm going to lie down.

EDIT: Editing my most recent post to reflect what Mana said to Joshua about the effigy, to save time.

8th April 2012, 11:35 PM
Mother of God... why was Sig's costume not Ultimate Nick Fury? It's so obvious now.
"Sigmund Okonkwo, director of B.E.A.S.T. I'm here to talk to you about the 'Persona' Initiative."

It's okay, SoS. The rest of us still love you. We just happen to also not hold the fate of your character in the palms of our hands.

8th April 2012, 11:40 PM
Speaking of awesome references, anyone notice the parallel between the first take on Scott Pilgrim's Final Boss and JP vs Pimp JP?

JP/Scott Get the power of love. Hell, the sword is a japanese silver/white sword. Scott's sword is exactly the way I pictured JP's sword (and I only saw the movie one week ago.)

Gideon/Pimp JP pull a sword from a cane in a counter to the hero's charge.

Honestly, the only difference in scenes is how JP went all MANO A MANO TIEM BIATCH on Pimp and Scott decided to use his brand new sword. Seriously, the similarities are almost creepy.

8th April 2012, 11:58 PM
And then Ciara decided that yes, now was the time.

I mean, it's not like she's lying. She's just forcing her opinionsfacts upon him.

All Joshua needs to do now is believe in her. And because he totally loves her, he's way more malleable than he would be otherwise.

I will fully support you if you want to go back and edit that in. Cause that would be awesome.

On another note, unless something decides to happen, I'm just going to enjoy messing with Izzy as much as possible. ^^ Just to give you a heads up Zinc.

...And I just imagined Ciara's eyes looking like that and making the noise. lol

Then Ciara's eyes turned into white blocks as she raised her head to the sky and screeched:

You forget that Gideon proceeded to rape Scott, kill Ramona, and then commit suicide in this version.
Kinda different.

9th April 2012, 4:12 AM
Oh, it's easier to get in the gym than I thought.

Zinc, I got to know. Is the DJ playing onstage, or ahead of the crowd on the floor? Just seeing if he/she's cut off from the audience. They could use some help.

9th April 2012, 4:16 AM
The DJ in a room in the back of the gym, closed off from the rest of the party.
The only thing that signifies he even exists are a few signs on the wall reading 'DJ Dizzy'.

10th April 2012, 10:00 PM
Umm... VB.
Can we tone down the Cosplaying students at the party? There might be some, but not that many.
As well as getting everyone in the place to start dancing. These are high schoolers. Most of them don't want to be seen having to go into the center, and some crazy chick yelling ain't gonna make them drop everything and run out.
Or at least that's what I got from reading it. It wasn't too clear.

You heard the man. This business of being so off topic and posting odd things must stop.
I'm just as, if not more, guilty than all of you so I take responsibility for it having to come to this, and apologize. (In fact, I believe I was the key perp here.)
From now on, we must only speak of things directly related to the RP. We've strayed from our path, my friends, and it's time to get back on that horse and ride it into the sunset.
I may have screwed up that metaphor quite a bit.
But you get my point.

10th April 2012, 10:39 PM
Yeah, will get back on topic.

I'm not riding your horse though.

10th April 2012, 10:48 PM
Sounds good. It's better in the long run anyway. Hopefully, we can send messages to the others about this. Someone might overlook and scroll past "Razor Leafs" warning, post a random gif, and then that's the end. Thanks for the heads-up though!

Zinc: I understand, that was a little wild. I was just got excited so, I'll curve it back some. The dance line part will be cut around there'll just be a small situation around her.

11th April 2012, 4:47 PM
Hey, Marbly, It's Wulfgard who's the pharmacist.
Testa's the World History Teacher and currently not part of the Court.

11th April 2012, 7:10 PM
Of course, my mistake! I'll change it up.

Testa Jones
School Pharmacy
4:00 PM

After grading the last of the day's tests, Testa resigned himself to searching for his brother-in-law, on orders from his wife.[...]

Skimming this post threw me off. :P

11th April 2012, 8:08 PM
So, couple of things.

First, writing up a post tonight as we speak, don't worry.

Second, I took an Arcana test yesterday, and it gave me an idea - if you're feeling concerned that you're not RPing your character according to their arcana, take a test as them, it might help put you on the right path. For the curious, I came up as Justice, then a tie for High Priestess/Lovers. Take that as you will.

Third and finally, question related to Randy which I may have asked before: with him losing his voice, is he even able to summon his Persona right now? If so, he's a big liability in the Court...

EDIT: Ok, this is finally fo realz yo. Hilarious thing that popped into my head for Joshua's Ultimate Persona, should we do them: Mara. (No, this isn't serious, obviously...)

11th April 2012, 8:17 PM

He can summon it. As long as you have the tarot card coresponding to your Arcana, you can summon your Persona now.
They to, will be mute at the moment, but that's inconsequential.
He'll probably end up getting knocked out in the first 46 seconds again anyway.

Also, to your idea, Ensign F*ckstick, we might have to make that canon now. Just because you brought it up.

11th April 2012, 8:19 PM
Uh-oh were in trouble Razor Leaf can along and burst our bubble~♪

@SoS: What does his voice got to do with summon the Persona? Just because the character in the games love to just scream out Persona and their Persona's name doesn't mean they have to. I think it all just forcing on summon them or something like that. Also I took a test of strength as Russell can I got Death with I remember correctly. I've tried to recently but that test(that I really liked) for some reason refuses to work on my computer. But I've read the Strength Arcana description and it fits Russell really well in my opinion.

Oh by the way on a related note I drew and colored: Theresa Del Monico (http://flamingstars.deviantart.com/art/Theresa-Del-Monico-294679537). Tell me what you think. It was my first try in a long time coloring a human; I don’t seem to care about messing up my animals and other creatures. *shrug* I’ve notice I’ve been drawing everyone else character and not nearly enough of Russell. I guess I’ll draw and show his picture next, maybe.

Okay question: Zincspider, what is there to do at the school’s Halloween Party? All I can imagine is dancing, talking and food, preferable Halloween theme... or pizza.

How does your character like his or her pizza? Russell would prefer veggie lovers’ pizza or supreme on thin crust. Doesn’t like crust all that much.

11th April 2012, 8:24 PM
I loved the Power Rangers Movie.

Well, it's just a reason for everyone to be meeting up and talking in the Gym, really. Talk, try and get some info from people on a day that one would think that your fantasies are simply a scary tale. That kind of thing.
Just an intorductory area before I move onto the Court.

11th April 2012, 9:49 PM
It's the first movie I believe; I got it for VHS. I used to be really into Power Ranger as kid. Nowadays there are so many series of them I can't keep up.

Well I knew that, but it's still a party. There should be something party like about it. Maybe a costume contest or something since it a Costume Party. I guess it won't matter anyways. I've posted if you haven't notice by this time.

11th April 2012, 11:07 PM
Alright, I'm done for a bit. I plan on moving into the Court on my next post, so finish anything you want to do at the party.

EDIT: A Del Monico is a kind of steak. 8D
The more you know!

11th April 2012, 11:46 PM
Terrific job, IF. That's pretty much how I imagined her to look from the start; A goth with blonde hair.

Lace likes her pizza everywhere, except where it needs to be.

12th April 2012, 3:20 PM
Agh, sorry for not posting for so long. Will throw a post in today, definitely BO

12th April 2012, 5:14 PM
I will fully support you if you want to go back and edit that in. Cause that would be awesome.
Honestly, I'm tempted, but it's a bit late now, and Sig seems more the type to go with a traditional costume than a character costume, anyway ("This 'cosplay' thing is pretty awesome, but not very Halloween-ish.")

Sig's done about all he's going to do at the party unless he gets lynched by Sofiya or something - he'll just be standing mostly out of the way. Basically, don't wait up on me to progress.

12th April 2012, 9:48 PM
Sofiya lynched Randy instead, this time 8P I needed to have her talk to somebody, and since the GMPCs are being all lonely, I figured I'd throw her there. I was supposed to have her step on Randy at first... and- yeah actually, imma change it so that she does. Seems more appropriate for her. Just a sec.

EDIT: Done.

12th April 2012, 9:54 PM
Hehe, JP and Mana are now paired on a dinner date XD ..... no homo... okay maybe a little.

Hehe, just isn't Randy's day..... It's never his day. Will Randy's day ever come?
