Difficulty: True ReincarnationCharacter Select: You awaken, limbs feeling all but dead, in a dark location. You can't really tell where you are, and your memories are cloudy...A spark of light flashes before you, blinding you momentarily. When your vision returns, a small table has appeared in front of you, a small deck of cards sitting on it."One of these is you." A voice says, seemingly everywhere and nowhere at once. "Your instincts will guide you to the correct one."The four top cards of the deck float off, laying themselves in a line on the table. Looking at them, you note their designs. The first has a traveler on its face, walking left on a grey background, with a skeletal dog following behind him. When you rest your hand above the card, it feels... Familiar to you.The second depicts a right-facing man, similar in appearance to the traveler on the first, hanging from a noose, hands clawing at his neck. A laughing jester is in the background, seemingly mocking the hanged man. A feeling of great regret, and some despair, comes from this when you lay your hand above it. The third is painted with a priestly looking man, seemingly performing a rite upon a slab. The jester from the second card can be seen in the background as well, laughing in much the same manner as otherwise. Something of a fatherly feeling comes from this one, The fourth card is blank, save for a single, large, question mark centered in it, surrounded by a box-like square. You can gather little else about this aside from a feeling of foreboding...You pause for a moment, before reaching your hand to the table and picking up the object on it that you feel closest to, the-- Fool- Hanged Man- Hierophant- Mystery Box
>>27205609There was no alcohol in the drinks.
>>27205650>- Hanged Man
- Mystery Box
>>27205407I like you already. >>27205639 What sort of cur do you take me for? Of course there are bosses.
>>27205650The mystery box is tempting but...Is the deck still there?
>>27205650- Hanged Man
>>27205650>>27205650>- Mystery BoxAlways pick the mystery box. It holds infinite possibilities within its unknowable fate.
>>27205650Pic relatedIn all seriousness, Hanged Man. We shall become the Minato reincarnation
>>27205688The deck is still there.
>>27205719Can I pick the Deck?If so, I pick that.
>>27205735Never said you had to just pick the cards.
>>27205719Could we draw another card from the deck?>>27205735Picking the whole deck could be fun too.
>>27205750You are a clever man. Let us choose from the deck.
>>27205750Can I pick the table?
I pick the table!
I'm suprised the mystery box is not being taken. I like taking the whole fucking deck idea
>>27205650>Mystery BoxThis or something else from the deck.
>>27205770May as well. Changing vote from >>27205709to this.Lets see if we can get Za Warudo right off the bat.
>>27205758Nope. No redrawing. Do note that this IS character select. Each choice is a different character. And I've only prepared five. >>27205772>>27205785Only if you want Nina Einstein to hump you.
>>27205650The deck!That or the Mystery Box.
>>27205823>>27205814Either the deck or the table.
>>27205814I have no problem with that.
>>27205814>FoolFool it is, gotta go utterly alpha on this.
>>27205814>Only if you want Nina Einstein to hump you.You make a very tempting case for the table.My choice would be either the deck or the table too.
>Pick the entire Deck>Become ElizabethThis might be entertaining
I like Anon's thinking: grab the whole deck. Let's see what happens.
Fool- 1Hanged Man- 2Hierophant- 0Mystery Box- 2Deck- 9Table- 3 deviants
So GoldenOP, what do the votes look like?Is that the first quest thread you run?
>>27206140Whoops, Miscount on Mystery Box and FoolFool- 2Mystery Box- 4Looks like the Deck is in the lead. >>27206148It is indeed. This will be a fun ride.
>>27206140Deviants? You wouldn't want to be humped by a cute slightly underage crazy lesbian physics genius girl?>>27206176Consider making a twitter to announce when next game is and when thread starts.BTW, DId you expect us to choose the damn deck or the table?
>>27206292I expected the MB, unless someone clever spotted the Deck part. Table was out of left-fieldThat I will. Anyway...Character Select: Deck>Writing
In before taking the deck is a horrible idea. Or we become the villain.
>>27206672>tg is the bad guy for onceFucking finally
>>27206672Being the villain in a persona quest seems like it'd actually be kind of awesome...especially if taking the deck means we get to be the only one who can swap out personas. I can just imagine the look of horror on the faces of those heroes. It's...it's beautiful.
>>27206672>we become the villain.>Become an insane eldritch horror that tries to destroy humanity because of the human desire for self destructionYes. YES. YES!
>>27206695What about the Black Comedy quest? That one is pretty... villainous, one could say.
>>27206734or demi fiend
>>27206734Your Pimp is showing.
>>27206746Hitoshura cannot into personas.
>>27206743yes but that one forces us to be evilwhenever we have a choice between good and evil tg always chooses GUD
>>27206672>>27206695>>27206724>>27206734Oh, it is a horrible idea. You'll regret this later on, I assure you. But you won't go Evil, no.If anything, the Mystery Box was the best chance of that happening.But I shall say no more, and resume writing.
>>27206695Hollow quest, Akuma quest, Bioweapon quest...
>>27206805Can our Persona be Alice? /tg/ needs more Loli.
>>27206805Well, won't be FORCED to go evil. If you wish to, though, you can. Though there would be... Consequences to that decision.
>>27206805When you say we won't go evil will be unable to or is it just unlikely?
>>27206746>>27206760Wait, we could become the villain and completely oppose the protag.Where he makes new social links, we undermine and destroy them through treachery, lies and violence.We create our own network of mad followers who wish for the end of humanity and use our contacts to undermine the protagonists and destroy their bonds.We attack them right after a boss while they are still weak and unprepared.
>>27206811Hollow i guess more of a round about way to get our plant friend backAkuma ive never readBioweapon we cant control our hunger and we eat everything that even looks remotely tasty
>>27206854>We can make our own Antagonist team of purseowners, each with an Inverted ArcanaLets not go too Nyarls here, but that idea has potential.
>>27206854And if we do go this route we follow the Evil Overlord's List like it's fucking scripture. >>27206879You might like Akuma. It's well written, at least I think it is, the characters are fun, we're a complete evil bastard but we aren't an idiot about it, and we bake.
>>27206847You worried me for a second there, OP. Now that the idea of playing the villain's in my head, I kinda find myself fixated on it.
>>27206847Consequences?Our dearest wish, kind sir, is to see the world overrun by shadows eating every last humans.
>>27206903"Well, why don't you tell us your plan, then? Don't we deserve that much?""Certainly. You see, it all starts with me doing this." *Casts Mudoon until the whole party dies* "Except for on the whole planet. Simple, no? ...Hey, you're not listening..."
That's it, you think, grabbing the deck itself. The four cards remaining on the table glow slightly, then slowly fade. The deck feels heavier in your hand after they do so."Ah, yes. Not a surprising outcome, but an unexpected one." The voice says, as the room slowly grows clearer and crisper. ...You're riding in the back of a limo. One with a very... Blue interior.http://youtu.be/NxcjF_TU_noAnd across from you, you notice the source of that voice. A hunchbacked man with an abnormally long nose sits, hands clasped in front of his grinning face, in the middle of the bench at that end. Other than yourself, he is the sole inhabitant of this car..."Now, can you tell me your name?" He asks, looking you over. You pause, drawing on your memories, before answering. "Yu Narukami." The man's eyes widen slightly at this, before his smile grows. "Ah. Then allow me to welcome to the Velvet Room, Yu Narukami. I am Igor, and I shall be more than happy to assist you in your coming journey." He says, waving at the interior of the car you're riding in. "I must apologize for the small attendance- my assistant had business in the world of man that she could not delay."The two of you lapse into silence for a moment, before he seems to notice your confusion. "Oh, yes. The Velvet Room is a place between the conscious and the unconscious, the physical and the mental. Only those bound by a contract or possessing the capability of travel into this realm on their lonesome can enter." He says, nodding as though to himself. "And only the former may obtain my services.""Now, before I release you to your physical form once more, do you have any questions for me?">Yes (Write in)>No
>>27207173>Yes (Write in)"You mentioned a contract. Could you explain further on that? A contract with what? What are the terms?"
>>27207173> Tell me more about this contract. DO you have an employer? Who is it?
>>27207173>Yes>Have I entered into a contract, then? Or did I wind up here on my own?>What are your Services? My coming Journey?
>>27207264Considering we just picked every arcana at once, it'll probably be better to call it Strange Journey.
>>27207173Did we take all the cards? or just the deck if so did we miss the fool, the hanged man, etc?We made a bad choice didn't we?
>>27207173>YuDoes that mean the other cards were the boy with the earrings/Tatsuya/Minato/FeMC?
>>27207289Or perhaps an Excellent Adventure.
>>27207308It said after the disappeared that the deck got heavier, so I assume they are now ALL in the deck again
>>27207308The deck felt heavier after the cards disappeared, so it's safe to assume they returned to the deck.
>>27207308Hierophant, fool and hanged man kinda sucked anyway.We still have the good ones from Moon, devil, star, sun and judgement.
>>27207308The deck contains all the cards. Ace-King of Cups, Swords, Coins, and Wands, as well as the full Arcana, and a single blank card.... >>27207322I'd prefer not to say who they were, but they were NOT those four. >Writing
Rolled 5Also, a singular roll for my own purposes.
>>27207470Oh, okay.Also>>27207173No. I don't need another tutorial to sit through
>>27207470>and a single blank cardWe Joker now.
>>27207470So both the major arcana and minor arcana which would mean a total of 78 cards are in that deck.Don't tell me we're the random draw character.
>>27207566Nah. Someone else is Joker. That's just a Wild Card. >>27207571You are not.
Adachi is the killer
>>27207674Thats nonsense anon He is a police man.
>>27207708And he looks so nice and harmless! He's such a niceeeee guy!
>>27207736All he wants to do is eat some cabbage
>>27207736And he's so helpful!This is the killer's way of trying to hide himself, isn't it? By making us look at poor Adachi.
>>27207759The killer was the manifestation of mankinds evil in their heart all along!Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain
>>27207802We could also look under the limousine.
>>27207847Or in a delivery van...
>>27207873Or a Van that has been guaranteed to be filled with free candy and free back massages
>>27207910>Or a Van that has been guaranteed to be filled with free candy and free back massagesOOOH! OOH! ME!ME!I WANNA GO!
>>27207936You and me both. I really need a massage while eating swedish berries.
>>27207936Okay sure, but first here smell this
>>27207964Why does this rag smells like chloroform...
>>27207987BECAUSE IT IS CHLOROFORM
>>27207987Aha, I've spent years building up a resistance to chloroform!Where's the candy and massages?
>>27207987Why do you know what chloroform smells like?
>>27207998>knowledge increased>anal tightness decreased sligtly
>>27208014Uh uh CHEESE IT
>>27208030Now- that isn't very nice, is it?

Or did I wind up here on my own?>What are your Services? My coming Journey? > Tell me more about this contract. DO you have an employer? Who is it?"Ah, yes. The contract I mentioned. It truly is a mystery to myself as well. The terms are for you and the other party to decide, naturally." Igor says, looking you in the eye. "From your appearance here, I would say you are unbound from any contract. Your appearance here is not unexpected, though, for those destined for greatness have been known to appear here from time to time. This is what I meant by your coming journey- the walk towards your true potential.""My services are many and versatile, and, though my own master has the policy of sharing nothing with those unbound by a contract, I will be glad to explain the few I offer you.""First among these is assistance in realizing your 'self'. Though this may sound trite and without use at the time, I assure you that you will find it of great value in the future."The man waves to the sides of the limousine briefly, before returning to the conversation. "I also will provide you with a secure respite, should you truly come to need it. Few can enter this realm, much less breach the walls of the Velvet Room.""My own employer is one of the inhabitants of this realm. However, a decade ago, he vanished after a project of his went awry. Since then, I have been maintaining this room, though due to the disparate powers, it is but a fraction of its original self. ""Ah, but do not worry about that. I have a very good feeling that my fortunes are soon to change.""Now, is there anything else you would like to ask me?">Yes (Write In)>No
As an aside, damn, things look bigger in my word processor than when actually posted.
>>27208114No, thank you for your time and patience, though, Igor. I hope we meet again.
>>27208114Ask how, when and where we can sign this contract.
>Sorry, dogs and family things came up really briefly. I'll finish this update fast, now that I can focus on it.
> We went true reincarnation> Our name is Yu Narukami> We Izanagi nowFeels good man. Let's go get that wife of ours and tell her we're sorry for freaking out once we saw that she had turned into a rotting corpse. In our defense, it was really shocking.
>No>Thank you for your time"Oh, it was no inconvenience for me to speak with you. As a matter of fact, it was quite relaxing." Igor says, shaking his head at your thanks. "I rarely have the opportunity to speak with those other than my assistant, these days.""Now, I must bid you farewell. I have great confidence that we shall speak again in the future."With that, you feel yourself slipping away, slowly regaining consciousness....========>Monday, April 11th, 2011, 7:45 PMYou awaken to someone shaking your shoulder vigorously. That's right. You were on the train to visit your uncle in Inaba when you fell asleep... "Hey, kid." The attendant says, giving you another shake. "Ah, good. This is your stop. If you'd kept sleeping for another five minutes, we'd have had to take you with us."Thanking the man, you gather your effects and disembark. Going through the station, you pass by a few colorful individuals- the rather eclectically dressed brunette girl standing out the most.Probably a hipster, or something. Reaching the parking area, you look around for the signs of the uncle who would be picking you up. Catching sight of a car fairly the one described to you, you head over to it to get a look at it when you hear a voice. "Oh, hey! Are you... Yu Narukami?" Turning around, you see a rather unassuming looking man, dressed in a cheap suit. "I'm Tohru Adachi. Your uncle asked me to pick you up for him, since he's tuckered out from work because of this missing person case."(1/2)
>>27210590WHATWHATWHAT JUST HAPPENED. WHY ARE WE MEETING ADACHI? WHERE'S NANAKO? WHERE'S RYOTARO?
(2/3)He extends a hand, sheepish expression on his face, and a smell of cabbage catching your attention as you go to return the handshake. Seems you know this fellows favorite food, now..."I'm his partner, but mostly get stuck with the grunt work."Adachi says after the two of you exchange initial pleasantries. "So, what brings you to this sleepy little town to stay with your uncle? Parents going traveling a lot?"You pause for a moment, before replying."Well, that and the fact that I haven't spoken to uncle Ryo since I was a little kid." You say, before turning to the car. "And I haven't met my little cousin at all.""Ah, I get it. Trying to get to know family you haven't spoken to, and taking advantage of a move to do that. Not that bad of a plan." The detective returns, nodding sagely. "Not much else you can do in Inaba 'sides talking, anyway. ""Anyway, let's get going. He's probably waiting at home, half asleep by now." The man shrugs, before heading to the car you had started to approach with you tailing. ========>Monday, April 11th, 2011, 8:25 PMYou arrive at the Dojima residence with Adachi after a short detour to refuel.When the detective knocks on the door, a scruffy looking middle aged man opens it."So, this him?" He asks, looking at you, then Adachi. "Yep. Got you the gas you wanted too." The younger man replies, before turning around. "Anyway, I've gotta get home and eat something. See you around, kid."With that, Adachi leaves, walking out of the neighborhood in the foggy night. "...So, you're Yu, huh? How's my little sister doing?" The man- your uncle Ryo- says, giving you a questioning look as he lets you into the house. "Pretty well. The move was making her stress out a lot when I last saw her, though." You reply, looking around the foyer and putting away your shoes. (2/3)
(3/3)"That sounds like her, alright." Your uncle replies, a small grin forming on his face. "Anyway, if you want to eat something, feel free to do so. I've set up a room for you upstairs, too, if you just want to get to sleep. Just be quiet about it, since Nanako fell asleep early. ""The transfer was already dealt with for school, too, so you'll need to head out in the morning. I'll give you directions before either of us leaves,""Thanks." You return, looking around the house as you walk further in."Welcome to your home for the next year." Dojima says, patting you on your shoulder. =========After grabbing a bite to eat, you have some time before you strictly need to get to sleep...>Talk to Dojima some?>Go to bed?>Write in
>>27211198Talk to Dojima some.

>>27211198>Talk to Dojima some more."So- is there anything I should be aware of or beware of? Your partner mentioned that you were busy on a missing person's case- but he didn't say anything else- so I was a little worried."
>>27211046Hey, I'm not the one who chose True Reincarnation for the difficulty! You should expect this sort of thing to happen.
nanako is the killer
>>27211316Why do I have a feeling that all the canon party members are going to be murder victims, and that Saki Konichi is gonna be our first party member?

Alright, I'm sorry, but I'm about to crash right now,and can barely type normally.I'll archive this, and continue with thread 2 where we left off tomorrow afternoon, or Sunday.So, until then... 'night. Got the "Talk to Dojima" written down in my file.
True Reincarnation. Does this mean we become our Persona instead of summoning them?
