Persona Quest, True Reincarnation Mode>Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Persona%20Quest%20Golden>Twitter: https://twitter.com/P4GoldenOP>Character Sheet: http://pastebin.com/txQXezA5>Rolls and Persona QuestWhen I call for a roll, I'll select the highest of the first three rolls made in response to the post calling for it. Natural 1's and natural 20's within the first five rolls count as critical failures or successes, and override the first three roll rule. Natural 1's and 20's negate each other. Only rolls linked to the post asking for them count, unless they are acting as corrections to misrolls that are linked to the proper post. >Previously...Seeing no one, you quietly close the door, but unlock it. That should make it easier to get out. Heading over to where the TV is, you check on its power, before turning to the two with you. "Alright, please don't tell anyone else about this, would you?" You say, before tapping the screen lightly, causing it to ripple "Th-THE HELL IS THAT?!" "H-How?!">I don't even>Me sticking my hand in the TV, of course>That's not important. What is is that->Write in
Rolled 11, 11 = 22>>27370477>Me sticking my hand in the TV, of course>That's not important. What is is that-
>>27370477Whats wrong? never seen a man push his hand into another dimension before?
So>Snark+rundown on things
>>27370780Sorry, yeswas just eating dinner
>>27370956Yep. We're here. Kinda.
>Snark then a rundown"What? Never see someone stick his hand into an alternate dimension before?" You ask, thrusting your arm into your elbow and hoping nothing grabs you this time....The two watch, their jaws slack, as you pull your arm out. "I... Wh... What?" Kanji says, finding his voice. "How the hell are you doing that?""I...Don't even know." You reply, shrugging. "I found out I could do this by accident the day before yesterday, when I... Well, saw the Midnight Channel for the first time. Got pulled in, too.""...Are you saying there's something inside of the TV?" Yukiko asks, looking at you skeptically. "But that's...""Yeah, a lot to take in." You say. "I went into that world last night and looked around a bit. It's almost an exact replica of Inaba."The two of you look at you as though asking you to explain more."When I saw Miss Yamano on the Midnight Channel, she was running through a place that looked a lot like that world. I think the missing people are getting...Pulled into there, somehow." You continue, nodding to Yukiko. "And where Junes would be, there was an odd tower, like something out of an old martial arts movie. Something living there called it a 'dungeon', and said somethings that makes me think it represents a repressed part of whoever's it is."You give Yukiko a look, indicating that she should be able to guess what's coming next."...Do you think Chie's somewhere in there?" She asks, failing to disappoint."Most likely. She went to Junes before vanishing, right?" You ask. "I'm betting you wind up roughly where you were when you got dragged into the TV. I know I wound up in the equivalent of my uncle's house." The room is quiet for a minute as that sinks in further. "...Alright, I don't know 'bout this alternate world shit," Kanji starts, punching his hand. "But if somethin' from it's makin' people disappear, we gotta beat the crap outta it. We gonna do this?">Yes>No>Write in
Sorry about the delay. Was tethering in the car, which is... Malconductive for typing.
>>27371754>Yes, but...We shouldn't go in unprepared. There are those 'Shadows' in there. We gonna need weapons for sure. Also, we don't know the condition the others might be in on the other side. Might need to bring some medical supplies with us.In short, prepare first, then we head in
>>27371754Yeswhat could possibly go wrong
>>27371813We all the equip fold-up chairs in the room of course.
>>27371754Also we need to mention that they are going to run into their own Shadow's that are a collection of all the crap they repress. If they can't come to terms with that part of them bad shit is going to happen. The least of which could happen would be them dying, might be exaggerating, but better that than them not taking this seriously.I'm going to throw the idea out that unless they can talk about their most often/deepest repressed feeling then they will only put Chie and what's his name, its too long, as well as themselves in danger.
>So "Yes", then tell them about the spooky monsters?Also, this was the image at the top of the page when I refreshed.
>>27371754Get some weapons and start ditching school. It's time to explore the other world.Let's see how fast plot can progress.
>>27372119Aww yiss, things are progressing beautifully!
>Yes, but..."We should, but..." You start, shaking your head. "That world's filled with these monsters. Black-blob things, called 'Shadows'." "...Aw, crap. They ain't nice, are they?" Kanji asks, expression falling. "Not in the least. There's a good chance we'll bump into Shadows of you two, though..." You continue, looking at the two in front of you. "They represent your suppressed desires and feelings, and will probably try and kill you immediately. I've met one that... Well, it looks like it's mine, but it somehow isn't." "Did it try to kill you when you met it?" Yukiko asks, peering at your curiously. "Nope. Babbled a lot of nonsense of 'Yu, not you', but was generally pleasant. He helped me find that tower, and gave me the rundown on things." You reply, shrugging. "But there's a definite chance of death or worse in there, that you should know about before you decide to go in. I'm going to give an attack on that tower a shot later, but..." The expressions on the two change, growing somewhat more concerned than they were before."If you want to help, we should do this after school. Probably at a large TV, so I can let us all in at once." You continue, shrugging. "At any rate, I think they should be fine for a while. I'm going to need to get my cousin home before I do this, because my uncle asked me to."You pause, thinking of what to say next...>"If you want to help, meet me at [Blank]">Write in
Rolled 20, 1, 5 = 26>>27372896Ask if there are any Tv's we can use or find for all of us to get in?
>>27372896>"If you want to help, meet me at [Blank]"Junes! I'm sure a super market has big screen T.V.s! Plus it should put us near the tower!
>>27372896>>"If you want to help, meet me at the TV section of the local Walmart."Or whatever constitutes as one.
Rolled 16>Rolling a common sense check, for you.
Rolled 7>>27373235common sense is a go
>>27373235We have common sense? I thought Nyarly stole that from us.
>>27373266Oh, I was doing it, 'cause I'm nice and it only needs one roll. If you'd prefer I use that 7, though....>>27373281He hasn't.Yet
>>27373294>if you'd prefer (DM laughter!)Everytime an anon leave his dice on, an angel laughs hard enough to lose their halo.
>>27373294I think we should keep the 16 for now because we apparently have common sense for nowI probably screwed up on the spoiler... I never really needed to use it before.
Rolled 13, 8, 3, 3 = 27>Roll me Notice, please.
Rolled 3>>27373529Ho boy...
Rolled 16>>27373529....here we go.
>>27373632No, we may be escaping from the frying pan, but I fear an oven awaits us.
>Meet me at Junes"If you want to help, meet me at Junes after school. They should have big enough TVs for us to get through, and if we come out in roughly the same area, we'll be right where we need to be." You say, deciding on location. "Bring something you think you can use as weapon, too."...You pause for a moment, realizing how bad it could be to be found with a weapon in a supermarket."Keep it concealable, though." You say fairly quickly, getting nods from the other two. ...You return the TV to where it was, and make sure everything seems right, before leaving and locking the door behind you.============>After schoolWalking towards the school's gate, everything seems normal.>Notice 16 v Stealth 13!As you walk past, though, you get a feeling that's something's not right, and turn around to see the odd student from yesterday lurking behind the side of the gate, probably to harass Yukiko again. ...And speaking of Yukiko, you see her hurrying out towards the gate, not paying attention...>Step in>Leave her to deal with it>Write in
>>27373707>Step inYou don't leave allies hanging in the wind.
>>27373707>Step inSeriously man if you want to get the notice of a girl you shouldnt stalker herthats like bad and stuff
Rolled 9>>27373707>Step in
>>27373707You know he could probably make some good bait for those monsters. Let's bring him along.
>>27373787im pretty sure he is one
SOB. I barely made it. Shouldnt we go through our TV so we can meet with Shadow Yu? We should tell them that they need to "accept' their shadow to make them stop......And get Dojima in on this. Because fuck yes, Dojima as a party member.
>Step in>Leave her to deal with it>Write in>Step in...That's twice now, you think as you pivot and walk over towards the gate. Time to say hello as well. As Yukiko walks through the gate, the creepy guy moves in front of her."Hiiii Yuki." He says, smiling creepily as she seems a little unnerved. "Why hello, Miss Amagi!" You say, catching the attention of both. "How are you doing on this fine day?""Oh... Narukami." Yukiko says, her nervousness fading somewhat. The odd student turns to look at you, looking fairly annoyed. "I was talking to her," He says, tone darkening as he glares at you. "Go away.""I'm sorry, but who here IS a student at this school, and isn't harassing one student? Because I'm pretty sure it's not you." You continue, smiling sparklingly at him in an attempt to infuriate him more. The boy grits his teeth, looking like he's mad. "FINE!" He yells, stomping away much like he did yesterday. That was resolved relatively peacefully. "Thank you," Yukiko says, sighing. "Didn't he do that yesterday?""Yeah, he did. I'm afraid you might have a stalker, miss." You reply, looking towards where the creep vanished to. "If you want, I can see about getting him to stop outright..." "That would be nice," She says, following your gaze. "I need to get home now. I'll see you at Junes in an hour."...Looks like she's in. The two of you parted ways, and you went to pick up Nanako.....After an uneventful walk home with your little cousin, you->Go talk to the Shadow>Go arm up>Head straight to Junes
>>27374235>Not having motherfucking nanako>Who's dark side is Bro-con
>>27374316>>Go arm up
>>27374316>"Yeah, he did. I'm afraid you might have a stalker, miss." You reply, looking towards where the creep vanished to. "If you want, I can see about getting him to stop outright..."This. We can tell Dojima. Since he's a student his parents could give him a ton of shit too.>Go arm up.>Tell/show Dojima when Nanoko isn't around.>Talk to Shadow about where we're going>Meet at Junes.
>>27374316>Head straight to JunesA man needs no weapons other than his body.
>>27374335OP implied it'd be a bad idea for Nanoko to know about this.>Get Dojima involved.>Talk to Shadow.
>>27374316>Go arm up
>Get Dojima involved. He's a cop with a gun.When we meet up with everyone we should warn them that they MUST accept their shadow.
>Dojima is still at work, for those wanting to get him involved>If you want "All of the above", tell me the order you want to do them. You have roughly an hour to work with
>>27374492>Go talk to the Shadow>Go arm up>Head straight to JunesWe can give our Shadow a quick heads up about whats going on
>>27374492First>Arm upSecond (if we have time)>talk to shadow broThen>head to Junes
>Alright, then. >Writing.
>>27374689OP can we get through this without dying 10 times? We dont even have a Contract yet.What the hell did choosing the Deck mean? The implication I got is that we're more than just a Wild Card. We're...Everything. One Card, Wild Card, whatever the fuck it means to have things like Cups.
>All of the aboveHeading upstairs, you rap on the TV's screen gently, before squeezing through again."Hey," You say, waving at the Shadow. "I'm going to be trying to break through that place again today. At least one friend of mine is going to meet me at my world's equivalent to it.""Awesome." The Shadow seems to be sulking somewhat, in the corner. "Uh, you gonna need a stick for this?"...You get a sinking feeling about your pipe..."Because I sorta bent your pipe when I went out to play golf with Halberies." He continues, holding up the pipe you claimed last night, bent to what appears to be a 20 degree angle, as well as what appears to be a blank playing card. "Got this from 'em, though! Shame I don't know what it does.">...What is that?> I need to go get a new weapon then. > Write in
>>27375137>...What is that?> I need to go get a new weapon then.
>>27375137TO THE LOCAL SMITHYAWAY
>>27375137>> I need to go get a new weapon then.Don't question the card.
>>27375084Yes, you can. It will only be 9 times. Probably.It means... Many things. MANY, many things.
>>27375210Once our potential is awakened, what will the difficulty even out to? Right now we're a bit helpless even with Shadow Yu, and we already ran into the Reaper. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being dying repeatedly over bullshit things we couldnt foresee) to 1 (godmode, all cheat codes, boring as fuck) what's our current difficulty? What is it when we get our shit unlocked?>...What is that?
>>27375254I shall not answer that. Most of the shit that will throw you off has been foreshadowed somehow, so that's your own fault. Only stuff is... No, the person who'll become the fifth vanishing act has been foreshadowed, as well.So yeah.
>>27375290its Nanako duh
>>27375290>Most of the shit that will throw you off has been foreshadowed somehow2deep4me
>TO THE SMITHY!"...Right. I'll be going to spend what's left of my money on a new weapon, thanks." You say, sighing and walking to the stack of TVs. "Meet me at that tower in about an hour." "No prob." The Shadow replies, waving as you step through the TVs.......You landed more gracefully this time. Grabbing your emptied schoolbag, you head out, telling Nanako to keep the door locked while you're out.========>Central Shopping DistrictAs you arrive at the shopping district, you take note of the goings on. ...Kanji seems to be heading to Daidara's workshop at the moment.>Head to the Metalworks>General Store
>>27375380Gah.>Write inwas left off in my copying and pasting. But do it anyway, if you want.
>>27375388What about the card?>Head to the Metalworks
>>27375380>Write inSpaghetti and tell Kanji to b-back that ass upseriously though use>Head to the Metalworks
>>27375404....I didn't double check the votes, is what. >It was a blank card, and only that from what you could tell. There's the word of QM.
>>27375442Can we ask/talk about it when we see the Shadow at least?
>>27375476Sure, next time you talk to the Shadow, I'll make sure to remember that.
>>27375488Write, OP. ;-;
Shoulda keep the pipe and Haggar through thisalso>have a full mage and full warrior in party from the start instead if weird hybridsRadical
>Head to the MetalworksStepping into the foundry, you see Kanji talking to Daidara."And, ya know, I thought ma'd feel better if I had somethin' I could use to smack down whoever's doin' these random kidnappings." He seems to be finishing, as the metalworker nods sagely. "Can't say I blame you. When I was about your age, some weird things were going on, too. I took to carrying a nice hammer with me wherever I went, too." Daidara says, seeming to drift off in reminiscence. "Yeah, I'll let you buy some stuff from me. Get something deniable, and you didn't buy it from me.""Gotcha." Kanji turns to take a look around, spotting you."Hey, uh..." He starts, pausing as he tries to remember something. "Yu Narukami," You say, offering a handshake. "Sorry I didn't introduce myself earlier.""Ah, no problem!" He says, shaking his head. "Hey, what do you think I should get? These knuckles, or something heavier?" He lifts what seems to be a western style shield from the pile in front of him, shrugging. >Knuckles, definitely>Hm... Get a shield.>Write in
Rolled 18>>27375680>Hm... Get a shield.become captain america!
>>27375680>Write inSomething big, like a sledgehammer
>>27375680get one of those brass knuckles with the spike on the bottom
>>27374492Can we bug him when we come back then?>Hm... Get a shield and hammer. You want a bit of reach, but small enough it"ll work indoors.
>people want him to use a shieldWHY
>>27375720Kanji is cleric now?
>>27375727Tradition, I think.
>>27375727Only >>27375694 wants and with a solid reasonI think hammers win
>>27375727Why not? think something with a bit of reach is wise though.
>>27375771Im okay with the shield/hammer combo but Kanji going Cap is fucking retarded
>Hammer+ShieldIt's a nice combo, going with blunt.
>>27375680Kanji will be our damage monster, yukiko is our healer, i imagine, so i say go with knuckles.Kinda just wanna see him wailing on shadows going berserker like a bamf
>Kanji is dorf, eh? >Alrighty.
>>27375799>shields>reachDo you even know what "shield" is?
>>27375829There is reach when you have a hammer + shield. >>27375820Getting that close does not seem like a wise idea in True Reincarnation Mode.
>>27375821We must now force Kanji to grow a glorious beard
>>27375821>Or, rather, Alwritey.
>>27375848Unfortunately he's only 15 y/o, and ~180cm tall to boot
By the end of this were going to look like a LARP group that likes to hang out in electronic stores
>>27375866>implying 15 year olds cant have beardswhat are you a girl?
>>27375870That's the fucking point>>27375889No they can't, unless there's something VERY wrong with them
>>27375866tfw i had a beard at the tender age of 10
>>27375906I could grow a full beard at 15/16git gud woman
>>27375917Jesus you must have a Muslim tier beard
>>27375920Well if you call those watery pubertate mustache a beard, then yeah, sure
>>27375971no not like those patchy as fuck fake beards I mean like full on neck bear
Oh dear. It seems this talk about beards has distracted me.
>>27376012I have a bad habit of doing that
>FULL DWARVEN"Why not a shield and something with reach?" You ask, waving over to Daidara. "Got a concealable hammer handy?""Heh. Getting the kid to copy me, huh?" He laughs, before pointing to the side. "Yeah, there are a few there. Grab one of the mallets. They're hefty enough to pack a punch, but can be hidden well enough."You and Kanji nod. "Thanks! I'll go grab one." Kanji says, heading to the shelf. "Now, what're you here for?" Daidara says, turning to face you. "Lookin' for a weapon too? What'll it be?">Write in
Good thing we didn't attempt to use the small school TV, or else we'd have to go all>"GREASE ME UP, WOMAN!"On Yukiko
>>27376031Greatsword+sheath we must become guts
Sword indeed, gotta go for the classic go-to weapon.
>>27376031Either sword+shield, 2H sword or polearmORhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAyCVTV8-lMThis tactical repeating crossbow.
>>27376031PolearmWe must copy Izanagi>>27376048They're heavy as shit though
>>27376085>implying that matters in anime land>implying we cant get buff as fuckMAD GAINS SON
>>27376085>They're heavy as shit thoughand polearms aren't?
>>27376085this, maybe a collapsable shaft with the blade interchangable? Make it easier to hide and carry around?
>>27376102Well, they are, trueMaybe just a two-handed sword, we can train in some Kendo club as well
Yari.It'd be like Izanagi.It's a 2H Sword Spear. Think about that
>Sword or Spear or Swordspear?
>>27376085A functional 2 handed sword is at the very highest 8 pounds.
>>27376154Swordspear, like >>27376142 said
Two handed sword, great sword. Like Guts.No polearm shit. Just a good old claymore.
>>273761542h sword also fuck number captcha
>>27376154Recount the votes since each of them was introduced at different points. People may reconsiderI choose the Yari: the Swordspear
We actually have no idea if we"ll have Izanagi, do we? Swordspear either way. It's a nice compromise.
>>27376167Wait a sec, why not have both? The pole-arm for baddies we wanna keep our distance from, and the claymore for when we wanna go beastmode on an enemy?probably not that viable, but still, something to think about.
>>27376177We not princess now
>>27376154Sword. It has to be at least *plausibly* concealable, and polearms just aren't.
>>27376199THERE CAN ONLY BE ONEIt will help determine our persona you fool
>>27376199A 2H weapon with 1H backup would work best. Like a machete or dagger.
>4 Sword>4 SwordspearPick.>>27376230It will not.
>>27376230 you're a fool. Well if that's the case, then i retreat to voting for a polearm like Izanagi has.
>>27376199>>27376254And you intend to get that into Junes all the way to the electronics department ... how?
>>27376228You can wrap it and say it's a fishing rod or some shitBesides, you can always say it's antiques and you were just taking it home. Yu was busted for it in P4 only because Yosuke is a moron
>>27376249Swordspear. Bitches love my glaives.
>>27376204What? You do realize that the Naginata is the sword-spear that Izanagi is using as Yu's persona, right?
>>27376269Still illegal, I think. Also still suspicious to be carrying around a wrapped package of that size so frequently; people are going to wonder what's up.
>>27376262well, i'm thinking about the future. We bring in the polearm now, assuming it's collapsable like i said in >>27376105and bring in the claymore via our TV at home.by your token of logic, it would be impossible to hide anything more than a longsword, and that would be with decent difficulty.
SwordsA good old two handed sword.It always one handed swords or spears. Shit man, two handed great swords get NO LOVE.
2H SwordDagger as backup.We can actually practice our swordsmanship at kendo. Cant with a spear or swordspear.
>>27376285The naginata is frequently thought of as a feminine weapon.>>27376298>by your token of logic, it would be impossible to hide anything more than a longsword, and that would be with decent difficulty.That would be what I am trying to get across to you, yes.
>>27376285I know, just P3P's FeMC also used nagitanasI'm voting for swordspears anyway>>27376288No they won't, nobody will think you're up to something with ancient weapons. Only guns rub people the wrong way. Everyone will think you're just a LARPer
>>27376303Fine, i'll acquiesce i agree with this, if only so we can move along already.>>27376308makes sense and convinces me well enough.>>27376321fair enough, i must have misunderstood something
>>27376308>We can actually practice our swordsmanship at kendo. Cant with a spear or swordspear.True that. (Dunno if Yasogami has kendo club; you couldn't join it in-game. But we could probably even *start* one, if we had to. Well, except for King Moron's inevitable petty objection. But fuck him.)
>>27376308fairly sure naginata-do is a thing. Though it might be female only.
>Give me your votes now. Straight up, no conversation between, please. 5 minutes. Starting... Now.
>>273763982H Sword, Dagger

>>27376473I'll dri to keep the puns to a minimum.
>>27376487Nah, go zwei fullpower. With guts.
>>27376434>>27376436>>27376462>>27376473This worries the hell out of me. Urban environment, we LIVE WITH A COP, and people want to go around carrying _two_ illegal concealed weapons?
>>27376487THE LEGEND NEVER DIESWhen you said zwei i couldnt contain myself
>>27376516well we gotta carry one, might as well go full ten yards with it, no?
>>27376516We hide them with shadow bro.
>>27376516Nah its cool police its just our larping gear!
>>27376516>illegalGuns are illegal, maybe knives, also bats but nobody thinks you're gonna cause trouble with a sword
>>27376533i have a sinking feeling that shadow bro, as bro as he is, will end up with similar results to our old pipe should we leave our stuff with him.
Swords are legal to carry when sheathed, so long as you have a valid reason.
>>27375906A good amount of my friends had solid beards at 14 tbh. It's not that farfetched.
WARNING: Please refrain from involving Dojima in all of this, he may be the killer, I'm not even joking, it was in P4's concept
>>27376679Sport is considered a valid reason.>>27376704Doubtful. And come on! It's Dojima!
>>27376540>>27376679Larping gear != live steel, bro, and even so, where exactly do you do your LARPing, then...? (Inaba's a very small town, remember. People actually know other people.)>>27376542>but nobody thinks you're gonna cause trouble with a swordYou may have been sarcastic, but you're right. It may seem absurd, but it's true: swords are too impractical to cause trouble with. It's more likely you're just a devotee of that nice Mr. Daidara's artwork.A concealed backup dagger, on the other hand, is pretty obviously the kind of thing you have with the expectation of using on someone.(If we at least make sure we buy the daggers and swords only as matched stylized sets, and then don't unwrap them except inside the Shadow World, it'll probably help... but better to avoid the issue at all, frankly.)
>>27376729Larping groups in europe use real steel weapons and armor
>>27376729>You may have been sarcasticI wasn't, nobody will think that you're some kind of retarded terrorist and will attempt to rob a bank or something as a knight
>>27376758Sounds like a worthy challenge
So, any ideas on the "foreshadowing" OP has given us? The clues we somehow missed?
At least I don't have to worry about this not being autosaged.
>>27376808WIRITE OP ;_;
>>27376800In P4 concept artbook it was revealed that Ryotaro was initially supposed to take Adachi's place, but it was discarded since 2creepySince Adachi was the one to take us home this time, I suspect their roles are reversed
>>27376808My Little Quest Thread Cant Be This Popular!
>>27376807There are 3 other wild cards in townUnknown girl works in model shopWe may not be what we think we areThat's all I have for now
>>27376838But it's really fucking good though
>>27376754_Live_ steel? Actual edged blades capable of cutting people? Fuck that.>>27376758>knightWithout a horse and/or armor, I don't think that's the first thought someone's going to have when they see a guy carrying a sword.(Random aside: If I remember correctly, openly carrying swords has been illegal in Japan since the Meiji Restoration -- not due to violence, but since that used to be the prerogative of nobility.)
>>27376826Working on it.
>>27376894They're blunt, I think, but heavy regardless, and can leave traumas even through armor
>>27376894>Meiji>Same lawsNo, you can carry a sword. Laws change
>>27376957This one hasn't. Why would it have? It's technically not even legal to own a sword in Japan without registration.Wikipedia:>The weapons law begins by stating "No-one shall possess a fire-arm or fire-arms or a sword or swords", and very few exceptions are allowed.>Any fixed knife containing a blade length of 15 cm or more requires permission from the prefectural public safety commission in order to possess. Permission requirements also apply to any type of pocket knife over 6 cm (including Automatic Knives), spears over 15 cm in blade length, and Japanese halberds. All knives with a blade length over 6 cm are prohibited from being carried, under a crime law, with an exception for carrying for duty or other justifiable reasons. There is a penalty of up to 2 years prison or up to a ¥300000 yen fine.See also:http://www.swordforum.com/forums/showthread.php?16799-FAQ-Japanese-sword-lawswhich indicates that>training and decorative swords made from a zinc-aluminum alloy that can't be sharpenedare excluded, so it's entirely plausible that canon Yu is just hitting Shadows with a large blunt sword-shaped object.
>>27377048>with an exception for carrying for duty or other justifiable reasons.Right there
>>27377048Well shitTime to get a guitar case
>Sword and dagger"...Got a big sword?" You ask, getting an odd look from Daidara. "Kid, you want something concealable, right? 'cause I know from experience that carrying swords around in public is a bad idea." He says, sighing. "So unless you have a way to pass it off as harmless, I suggest you don't carry it around a lot.""...I'll probably mostly keep it at home, actually." You say after a moment's thought. "So that should be fine.""...If you say so, kid." He sighs, pointing to a pile from which you retrieve a decently polished tachi. Placing it on the counter, you sigh as you count out what money you have left. "...Kid, grab this beaut's sister blade. It ain't long, but it'd make a nice looking accompanying piece, and be more readily concealable." Daidara says, sighing and pointing back to the pile. "I'll throw it in, since you two are some of the few who're interested in my stuff in town."...Another minute's searching ends with the blade on the counter. "Alright, now the total will be..."You blank out at the statement, handing over what meager remnants exist of your wallet's lifeblood. You REALLY need to find a job..."Right. Anything else before you go wandering off with a pair of deadly weapons?">Write in
>>27377089We're broke, so leaveOr maybe ask for some battle tips, if he has any
>>27377089anything we can practice on, make sure we've got the weapon's weight dialed in and the proper stance?
>>27377089>You REALLY need to find a job...We should do that later. P.lus, we may get a shot at being contracted
>>27377089Why don't we ask about the other people who were looking at the window?
>So... Ask about forms? Anything else?
>>27377329Ask about forms, if anyone has a job opening since you just moved in
>>27376398Swordspear! Glaive! I'm late...
>>27376830How do we know OP is or isnt going with that? We have no real clue.>>27376807I didnt play P4, so no. I'm pretty sure we're fucked because of the people wanting true reincarnation
...Alright, this is seeming kinda... Dead at the moment, and I'm exhausted. I think I'll call it a night now, with the question reposted/non-write in options (based on the current write ins) added next thread. So... 'night, all.
>>27377479Next thread is a "Maybe" tomorrow night, around 10 Eastern, or highly likely Tuesday afternoon, around 4-5 Eastern, I'd like to add.
>>27377479>this thread>deadThats a lie and you know itif you need sleep just say your going to sleep were not going to burn you alive for it
>>27377496....Fair enough. I've got it in me for one more before I crash. Want it?
>>27377523Up to you man
>>27377523>>27377535Hell im about to crash aswell
In that case...>Ask for fighting advice, then if anyone nearby is hiring.>Writing
>Ask for fighting advice, then if anyone nearby is hiring."...Well, I don't exactly-" You start, being cut off by a loud sigh from Daidara. "...Dammit, kid." He says, shaking his head. "Buying a weapon you don't even know how to use..." He turns around, taking a stick of roughly the same length off of a rack behind the counter."Hands here and here. Use your waist as a pivot, and keep your feet steady." He says, pointing to parts of the hilt and demonstrating. "And for gods' sake, don't flourish. It's a waste of energy, and leaves you wide open.""Alright..." You say, following along and letting the impromptu lesson sink in as much as it can."And that's about it. Most of that applies to all swords, so remember it. This thing, I don't know exactly how to use, but that'll probably also be based on your own style." Daidara finishes, putting the weapon used for demonstration back onto its hook."Thank you for that." You say, before looking around awkwardly. "Uh... Know anywhere nearby that's hiring?""The gas station needs a part-timer or two. The last one they hired is a looker, but she's really not enough for 'em, even though this is a small town." He replies, shrugging. "Not sure if it's the sort of work you want or not, but that's what I've heard about.""Alright, thanks again," You say, nodding as you head to the door with your packaged blades. "I'll probably come back to talk more."As you head out, you notice the spot to the side of the door still feels off, and there's a slight haze around ground level....One of these days....>To Junes
And that's the last post of the eve. 'night, all.
>>27377734We should look into that job at the gas station, maybe recreate creation with our waifu in the endgame
>>27381218Actually I wonder which one is Izanami: part-timer at hobby shop or at gas station? Probably neither
>>27381253shh anon, shhlet me have my dreams
Not here to run. Popping in with sage to provoke paranoia.>>27381253Well, hobby shop girl is brunette, so make of that as you will.
>>27381297We're in japan99% of the girls are brunettesIf that one is Marie though, that means no models forever;_;
>>27381517Fair point. But it does remove one from the list of potential candidates.
>>27381297OP will Shadow Yu get his own persona?
>>27384214It really depends on how things go. If you get the Shadow to have his own sense of self, free of just being an embodiment of, well, what Shadows are?Possibly. Of course, he could also transition into a Persona on his own, or convert to something... Else. It really depends. I'm not saying what the "Else" is.And remember, kids! Sage goes in the email field during this talking.
>>27384312You'd be open to us trying to bro it up with him, right?As a character, I really enjoy him. I assume he has knowledge of things like Earth since he's a reflection of a Yu. So we could try grabbing him food and stuff.
>>27384383Another few conversations and I was planning for a new Bond to form, actually.
>>27384458Sounds pretty sweet. Are there really things we haven't caught on that you foreshadowed? How much of it requires you to have played the game?
>>27384524Well, from what's been said, you've only notice two. I count... Three more you should be thinking about. The fact that no bodies have been found among them.
>>27384659Last part can mean anything really. Other two? Which?
>>27377734Time to get that S-Rank IZanami relationship.
>>27384691Me to know, ect. I promise it'll be... Interesting, though. For one side of the screen or the other.
