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. >Character sheet updates!>Please roll 4d100. First is Magic XP, second is Weapon XP, and third and fourth are General XP.>You have a new Perk: Devil, Rank 1. Would you like to accept it?>You have a new Perk: Fortune, Rank 2. Would you like to accept it?>Persona section added
Rolled 17, 14, 2, 5 = 38>>27665892Yes and Yes.Also where is our persona section in the pastebin?
Rolled 46, 31, 73, 40 = 190>>27665948Sorry that was a die of 20, this is the 100
Rolled 6, 76, 80, 19 = 181>>27665892Lets get this shit started
Rolled 80, 41, 13, 36 = 170>>27665892Just for clarification, do we only have one perk pick, and we have to choose between Devil and upgrading Fortune?
>>27665970You can choose both, or neither, or one.
>>27666006>>27665892Oh neat, then. Let's take both. I can't see how blindly accepting power from the sea of souls into our self can be bad for us. Seriously, though, might as well. It's not SMT if we're not unwittingly binding our souls to supernatural powers.
>Magic XP: 80>Heavy Blade XP: 76>General XP: 120>Bonus General XP: 300>General XP pool: 501>Sheet updated
>>27666006Sorry, not a persona player, what exactly does perk "The Devil" do? Definitely accept Fortune 2, just wanna know what I'm signing up for before grabbing the other.
>>27666220Since people said both, you got them... Both. In this case?Immediate drawback for potential solution. A... Deal with yourself, of sorts.Also, you should go play Persona.
>>27666220Unclear. It's not part of the game, it's a quest feature. But the Devil Arcana represents bondage and enslavement. Specifically, it represents how people get too attached to concepts and ideals and can't grow as a result. So...read into that what you will.
>>27666269It also represents Temptation, which I'm playing up here.
>>27666191Buy magic lv.1Leaning towards either banking the rest or buying notice lv.2...for now voting bank.
>>27666191Spend 178 XP on Magic Level 2, 300 on Notice Level 2, bank the remaining 23.
That all the votes?
>>27666659no but I think the same thing as >>27666399>>27666624>>27666335
>>27666399ThisMagic is so good.
>Magic and Notice>Sheet updated
>PreviouslyLooking at Yosuke and Chie, they've lowered their hands and seem to be relaxing. ...Teddie pokes his head out from behind his hiding spot. "But... He smells like those masks..." ....>Don't worry, eh's a pretty cool guy. "Even if he does, he kept me from dying due to my own screw up," You say, turning to Teddie. "Besides, other than pulling me into the TV, he's done nothing harmful to me."...This seems to satisfy him, and Teddie carefully removes himself from the 'hiding' place. "Well, all right..." He starts, doubt obvious in his voice. "If you're beary serious...."You nod. He may be suspicious, but he's been helping you, after all. "Alright." Yosuke says, knocking you out of your thoughts. "We need to talk about what we're doing." Chie looks at him oddly, but both Yukiko and Kanji nod, seemingly knowing where this is going... "Satonaka, you remember that thing that threw us in here?" He asks, looking to Chie. "I think we all need to find it and take it down."Chie seems to think about it for a moment, but nods."Yeah, that's too dangerous to be running around loose." She says, punching her palm. "Exactly what I thought." Yosuke says, shaking his head. "Thing is... I can't really do this sort of thing." He shakes his head. "I'm not a good leader at all."...You have a suspicion where this is going..."So I suggest we let Narukami do it!"Called it. Looking at the faces of your fellow students and the Shadows, you->Write in
>>27667002"If I'm really doing this, I request you call me 'Captain,' 'Boss,' or 'Optimus Prime'."
>>27667002Don't expect me, to be competent I'm just running on luck.
>>27667002We take the lead. We've been more or less doing it so far, how will making it official be any different? As our first action as leader, we should order everyone who can leave the Shadow realm to do so. Yosuke and Chie are still reported as missing, they need to get home (note: tease Yosuke if rumors about them disappearing together come up). Sure, going off to find the thing that did this is tempting, but we're in no shape to do so at the moment. For now we'll just get each others' cell phone numbers so we can keep in contact, then head back home to recover for next time.Speaking of homes, where do the Shadows live? Shadow Yu's room was wrecked by the Reaper, and I don't know where Teddie lives. Are those two going to be alright?
>>27667192This, followed by >>27667126
>>27667243This, but we need Kanji to put teddy and Shadow Yu in his home. Heck, teddy can be in yukiko as a teddie bear.But the problem is shadow yu.
>>27667394Well, we don't know if Shadows can leave this world. Sure, Teddie does in canon, but that's after he develops a Persona and grows a human body. And who knows what Shadow Yu can do. Hell, we're not even sure exactly what he is, at the moment.
>>27667394Shadow Yu seems like it knows what's on the up and up. Offering to take it home might raise suspicion with everyone else and it's waiting for it's Yu, so we could offer to escort it to a safer place.Be nice, you know?
>Don't expect me to be competent>But you have to call me-You sigh. No avoiding this."Alright, first things first." You say, pinching the bridge of your nose. "I've made it this far on luck alone. Plain and simple."...They don't seem to be worried."Don't sweat it. You're doing better on the fly than I could with planning." Yosuke says, waving it off. "'sides, you really don't want me in charge.""You'll do fine." Yukiko says, nodding. "You got us through that alive, after all."You sigh again. "Alright. On ONE condition." You say, as the group begins to pay attention. "You call me Chief. Or Captain. Or Optimus Prime. Or... You get the idea."...You can hear the mental facepalms."Of course, sensei!" Teddie says in his overly cheerful voice. "I'll keep on calling you sensei!"...God dammit, Teddie. "Jokes aside, I'm willing to do this." You continue, getting a few sighs of relief. "Alright then." Yosuke says, nodding. "From now on, we're the Inaba Special Investigation Team.""And our goal is to hunt down that masked freak who threw me and Satonaka in here," He continues, getting nods from the others and yourself. "And put a stop to him.""Yeah.""Indeed.""Yep." "Sure thing!"...The Shadow is noticeably quiet. "Uh, bud. I think it might be a bad idea if I stick with you all for your investigating." He says, rubbing the back of his head. "I'll help out in acting on them, just not in performing them."Yosuke shrugs when you look at him. "Your call, 'Chief'.">Write in
>>27668067>"What's up, Shadow? That's fine if you need to maintain a cover or something. Would help, though."
>>27668067Wouldn't we demand to be called "Battle Convoy", not Optimus Prime? Just saying. We are in Japan, we'd use the Tomy-Takara names, not the Hasbro ones. Anyway, I'm fine with Shadow Yu sitting out the majority of the investigations. He's somehow connected to the False Shadows, he might be susceptible to influence by whatever is controlling them. Hell, we know he has some control on him, keeping him from saying what he is. If he feels it isn't safe for him to be around while we're trying to uncover the secrets, I'd say we trust him.
>Trust the Shadow?Go I need to go argue Persona v. Stands with Joey? 'cause this is pretty dead.
TONIGHT...YOU...ARE FINE WITH THIS.
>>27668723Yeah, I don't know what's up, tonight. Gundam AGE Quest is mostly dead, too. But I'm still here, and I say we trust the Shadow.
>>27668723Yes, trust the shadow (for now), but ask for a reason.No, don't leave us.
>>27668067trust the shadow, I've been looking lurking mostly so I should probably respond more
>>27668723He hasn't fucked us over yet, so trust him.
>>27668723Stands are better due to FTL feats and persona got shit on StandsBut SMT high tiers are too high for JOJO.outskirtsbattledome.wikispaces.com/Character+Profile+-+Protagonist+(SMT+Strange+Journey)
Oh, yes.Forgot the Notice dice.>5d20, please.
Rolled 11, 3, 19, 16, 13 = 62>>27669441oh dear.
Rolled 20, 13, 11, 4, 14 = 62>>27669441extreme failure !!!!!
Rolled 14, 19, 11, 6, 18 = 68>>27669441How does having level 2 Notice affect that? Does it lower the hidden DCs, or something like that?
Rolled 18, 17, 18, 8, 16 = 77>>27666939For the archive-record:>Devil, Rank 1: You're able to deal with the world more than not. Once per thread, you may choose to take a natural 1 on a check, that cannot be negated in any manner. If you do, you may negate one natural 1 within the thread.>Fortune, Rank 2: You've reached out and grabbed hold of your fate. Once per thread, you may increase or decrease a roll result by 1. This can negate or produce a critical.Huh. I would have pushed to not take the first. Glad I wasn't here, I guess.>>27668067"Ah, yeah, having two Yu-shaped entities out there could get kind of confusing. ... although, now that I think about it, there probably already are two Yu-shaped entities out there. That's probably going to bite me later."Is it possible that the Yu Narukami of whom he is a pseudo-Shadow is simply past-Yu, and that he doesn't recognize us as the same Yu because our soul has been significantly fucked with since then?
>>27669500Raises the hidden bonus, actually.
>>27669499>>27669450>>27669500>19>19>20HAHAWE NOTICE EVERYTHING!
>>27669563I'm taking from the sets in order, actually. First roll of the first set is taken, along with the first of the second, ect. That way, it's spread out over people.But yeah. You've got two more sets to roll. Either here or there >>27669441
Rolled 13, 5, 7, 16, 20 = 61>>27669616
Rolled 7, 20, 8 = 35Unrelated.
Rolled 11, 19, 19, 17, 20 = 86Oh, really? In that case I'd like to suggest using Devil-1 on the second notice roll (the 3).>>27669525So basically it's +2 on all our Notice checks?
>>27669654>>27669659>>27669665oh god, the crits. The CRITS.
>>27669701665 doesn't count. Not linked to one of my posts saying it counts. Sadly.
Rolled 7>>27669665Wait, I think I've misunderstood. You mean our first Notice roll is taken as (11, 3, 19) = 19?In that case I guess I meant taking it on the third instead -- the (13, 11, 4).>>27669733AAAAGH I thought I linked that. Fuck. Here: >>27669616
>>27669665Crit-fails on notice get you a knife in the kidneys. I vote against that.
>>27669733next Bleach Quest is going to be a trainwreck.Or peter parker quest, for that matter.
Rolled 10, 19, 20, 2 = 51>>27669771>dice+1d20... also, fuck me with a spool of barbed wire wrapped around an angry pickup truck. (And >>27669616.)
>>27669771No. The first notice check is taken as [11. 20. 14, 13, 7] From these rolls. >>27669450>>27669499>>27669500>>27669654>>27669771/>>27669819
>Trust"Alright." You say, looking at the Shadow. "You can stick around as extra muscle when we need it." He grins. "Just what I was asking for." He says, nodding. "Sorry about that, but I just have a bad feeling about being near too sensitive stuff."You shrug. "Whatever." You look around at the others. "Alright, so we're a team now." You say, giving each a look in the eye. "We're going to find that thing, and stop it. One way or another."The reaction is unanimous, with firm expressions and nods given.>Notice 20!...As you glance at Yukiko, you notice her jump slightly, as though something surprised her..Just as she seemed to have jumped, you notice a strange weight in your pocket, something that wasn't there before... Reaching in, you feel an old skeleton key... Yukiko seems to be checking her pocket as well...>Write in>...You feel new bonds beginning to form....>Sheet Updated
>>27669917>>...You feel new bonds beginning to form....wait whatThat's not a social link, is it.
>>27669917Straight-up ask Yukiko about the Velvet Room and Igor....We have been to the Velvet Room already, right? I forget.
>>27669917Well then. Looks like Yukiko's going to have her fortune told.And it looks like she's going to have to Social Link it up, too. Note to self: don't step on her toes with the Rank 10 Strength. Hell hath no fury.(And who are we going to get for our Priestess, then, if Yuki's a Fool?)>>27670011'course it is.
>>27670017You've been IN the Velvet Room, briefly, at the start of your Strange Journey.
>>27670017We have: Igor offered us a choice of cards, and we took the whole deck. But unless the key is a most peculiar shade of blue (which I seem to remember that it is, in-game: is it here, OP?) then we don't have any IC reason to connect the key to the Room yet.
>>27669917So Yukiko's a Wild Card, too? Or at least she can access the Velvet Room. I'm not sure how I feel about that. She already copied our "no Shadow confrontation" thing, now she gets the other Protagonist special trait? Will all our party eventually get to visit the Velvet Room, then? That could be a cool result for having taken the whole deck instead of a single card.Well, let's ask Yukiko if she's got a weird key in her pocket, then. We can compare them, see if they're the same sort of thing. Magic keys appearing in peoples' pockets unbidden is weird and deserves bringing attention to.
>>27670048>(And who are we going to get for our Priestess, then, if Yuki's a Fool?)You don't need a Fool Arcana to have a Wild Card, it's just more likely. ALL of the Persona 1 and 2 playable characters could equip multiple Personae, meaning they were ALL Wild Cards.
>>27669917We got Yosuke, Yukiko and Kanji as S-Links all at once, but no Chie? What's up with that, lady? Is this because we left during the fight with Shadow Chie to back up Yukiko? Or just because of the lesser time we've interacted with her, compared to the dungeon crawling we did with the others?
>>27670180So it's one of those reasons, and it's NOT that it's the Fool social link for the entire Investigation Team?
>>27670180I really should have learned by now, shouldn't I? Whatever, we'll still get her S-Link. She'll let us help her through her personal growth whether she likes it or not, damn it!
>>27670206Yep. One of those. Not saying which, but it's one of them. >>27670215You really should have. I mean, there are at least four QMs who answer like that. I just happen to be one of the ones who delights in Kotomines.>So, actions?
>>27670264"Are you okay yukiko?"
>>27670264Extract key, examine.
>>27670264It was mostly a rhetorical question, anyway. I wasn't expecting an actual answer, that's why the "Yes" caught me unawares. Still, I should heave predicted it coming.Whatever, let's ask Yukiko if she's got a weird key in her pocket all of a sudden. Would be interesting if she has something completely different, you know? Like, instead of a Velvet Key she has a Burlap Lock. Or something less stupid than that.
>>27670264Wander aimlessly through the shadow realm.The plot should crop up sometime soon.
>>27670549if by "plot" you mean "Thing trying to kill all of us," then yeah.
>Extract key, examine, questionPulling the key out of your pocket, you examine it...Out of the corner of your eye, you notice Yukiko doing the same. ...They're the same key. The others are looking at both of you with odd expressions. "...Alright, this is odd." You say, getting a nod from Yukiko. "Any of you suddenly have a key in your pocket?"...About a minute goes by, with everyone searching their various pockets....Only ou and Yukiko seem to have the keys...And you can hear an odd, high-pitched noise coming from the platform above the building....>Write in
>>27670720does anyone recognize the noise? They might have heard it before and not thought it was important.l..
>>27670720Have the others hang back a little and head up-top with the shadow and Yukiko to investigate.
We might want to spend some time -- not now, but later -- exploring the Shadow World to find good emergency entry/exit points.>>27670767Nah, it's just someone screaming as they fall, terrified, from the unexpectedly yielding television surface into a fog-filled abyss. Let's go up and greet them once the platform stops bouncing (but before some asshat in a black suit kidnaps them).
>>27670720"Anyone else hears that? Is everyone good enough to check it out?"
>>27670818how about we ask who wants to come with. I don't want it to seem like we're excluding the rest of the party because suddenly we have something else in common with Yukiko.Persona's a pretty paranoid game.
>>27670925We could also head up with just the shadow and have everyone else ready ambush whatever is up there while we distract it.
>>27671153Investigate noise, ponder implications of Yukiko being the only other one to get a key.
>>27671153Let's all head up to greet the new arrival! Or fight a bonus boss. You know, whichever.
>>27671174Pretty much this. We don't really have any other clues at the moment.
>>27671153Inquire about noise, then investigate.
>Alright, sorry to say this, but I'm kinda nodding off right now. >I'll continue when I wake up, which shouldn't be too late.
>yukiko is a heroine>true reincarnation modeYukiko is a goddes, calling it now
Why do I have a bad feeling we won't be able to romance ChieShe's best girl
>>27675214Get out with that "best girl" shitThere's only "worst girl" which is Marie
>>27668752Here's hoping Mitsuo will turn into Mara or something as disgustingActually no, mara is the only option to prompt a better reaction from teammates, before Yukiko goes and dumps a lorebomb about who that is
>>27675267Why is Marie worst girl? She was actually a pretty cute tsundere. As far as I'm concerned she was a very nice change from what people typically think of when they here the word 'tsundere' these days.
>>27676367She doesn't really have any traits that make tsundere "cute". In fact she doesn't have feelings for you until you get the lovers flag (which I have to admit is a nice change of pace), so she's really not one, and just a rude bastard
>>27676715Actually she does. When you read one of her poems it says, 'You Killed MeYou are a murdererBy your silent smile, by your composed voice,By your dark eyes, by your bashful fingersI am slain.I am a corpse.Foolish, wretched, happy.Surely, I’ll simply rot away….My last words….adieu, au revoir….mon cheri(french for my love or my sweetheart, a term of endearment.'She then calls you murderer in her little word babble. It even counts as a little bit of myth lore since Yu has Izanagi and she is Izanami-no-mikoto
>>27676845>reading her poemsAnd I never paid attention to her word babbling, I thought it was composed from random words, including recently usedI just thought she doesn't love you first since she asks you to "prove it" when you confessSo she rides Yu's dick too...
>>27677048Well Yu is one suave, charming motherfucker. Who doesn't ride his dick?
>>27677145I'm just saying that I feel like Atlus tries too hard to make player feel special by making every character want the protag's D, it's disturbing
>>27677145>>27677180I suddenly feel obligated to repeat what I said a couple of threads ago about how EVERYONE in the game wants Yu.Honestly, it does get to the point of trying way too hard in P4.
>>27678236Also, I still say we romance [s]Izanami[/s]that lovely gas station attendant.
>>27678316Any other day I'd agree with you, but now I think we should romance YukikoShe may be Izanami
>>27678316Yeah, we never actually met any gas station attendant.Think about THAT for a bit.
>>27678414It's ambiguous. We visited the gas station, but skipped that scene
>>27678414Yeah, this time the Persona is entirely ours which makes for a much more interesting development. However, we have asked before about jobs around town and one of them was indeed the Gas Station.
>>27678486You forget hobby shop
>>27678438Nope. Adachi went by on the way to pick you upReflect on that.
>>27678941I reflect on you being here right now
>>27678941I was curious if we actually stopped at the gas station or not in the intro.Also, this Quest has driven me to start playing a new round of P4 again. Curse you OP! Why can I not romance Izanami in this game!?
>>27679041Because you have her ex-husband living inside your brain, and that makes things just too uncomfortable for her. They had a bad breakup, she doesn't want to be reminded of it.
>>27679041Funny, because this quest got me to actually start playing P3 with intent to play P4 when I'm done.Except I've been very lazy and have only gotten to the first journey into Tartarus.
>>27679012Yeah, woke up, dealt with some stuff, and am now here.>>27679041You can, technically. In Golden,
>>27679041>>27679115I'm replaying both P3 and P4G to write down stat progression for each character and use it in other various ganes
>So, Investigate is your action?
>>27679182>various gamesgod damn it
>>27679171I'm aware. Sadly, I've only got the original.>stands lworterI think captcha wants us to get back to mucking about with our [s]stands[/s]personae.
>>27679197Let's indeed.>>27679209And wow, that's suddenly not working.
>>27679229I don't think strikethrough has ever worked on 4chan. Suptg turns spoilers into strikethrough, though. For some reason.
>>27679252I have used it before. Not sure why it's not working now, but oh well. Just something to keep in mind in the future.
Did OP died?
>>27680219OP wound up dragged on a Magical Journey into the Realm of Pizza.But he's >Writing.
>InvestigateYou sigh at the noise."Alright. I'm going to go check on that." You say, turning and heading towards the ladder. "Probably best if it's just me that goes."You can hear confused murmuring among the rest of your group, but pay it no mind as you start climbing. Eventually arriving at the top, you look around... Nothing really seems out of place, aside from the door where you had felt that presence earlier... Wait. Door? As you carefully approach to investigate, you hear the sound of footsteps behind you.Turning, you see the rest of your group in various states of climbing off the ladder and looking around. ...Not even Yukiko seems to notice the door...>Write in
>>27680746Well, there's only one thing to do now.[X]Kick down the door while screaming bloody murder.
>>27680775First we open the doorAnd then we get on the floor...
>>27680786And then we walk the dinosaur!
>>27680814Pic related. It's what you should have posted with that.
>>27680878Someone needs to go watch Kyoryuger, then, >>>/m/>Anyway, open the doo?
Rolled 19>>27680941Yes. Open the door.What could go wrong?
>>27680941Yes indeed.>urnonoo physiologyand i think captcha is saying we don't know physiology
>>27680746OPEN ZE DOOR
>Open the door"No one but me can see it, huh?" You mutter, pulling that key out of your pocket. From the new shine it's taken, it looks like they're related...Sensing a change in the door's presence, you make up your mind.Time to open this door. Reaching out to it, you give the handle a turn, and it creaks, opening outwards slowly. Looking in, you see the limo from when you awakened, with the large nosed man waiting, hands bowed in his seat. To his left is a woman dressed in blue, who turns to look at you....>Enter the room>Close the door and leave
Rolled 42>>27681594>>Enter the roomBe polite.
>>27681594"Excuse me, where the fuck is the emo, goth, tsundere chick? I ordered one with my Gold."
>>27681594>Enter the room."Oh, hello there. Good to see you again."Pause for a moment."Why do I feel as if someone's missing?"Well, if the last part isn't too meta-y, I know you said we could have vague feelings about stuff.
>>27681594>Close the door and leave.I've seen the videos, nothing good comes out of men with large noses in limos.
>Enter the roomYou step into the room, ignoring the shouts of surprise from your companions as you do so. The door creaks shut behind you as you sit down. "Good to see you again." You say, stepping up to the table, before turning to the woman. "I'm guessing that you're Igor's assistant, Miss...?""Margaret." She says, nodding. "And your guess is correct. I am here to serve as a guide to those on journeys of self discovery.""So, you're here to help me." You say, getting another nod from her. "Good to know."Igor seems to rouse himself again, adjusting his seating to look directly at you. "Several actions yesterday have altered the path you shall take." He says, shaking his head. "The source of these actions is hidden from me, but you have seen their results already.""You mean how Hanamura and Satonaka were thrown into the TV, don't you?" You ask after a moment."Indeed I do." He replies, before looking you in the eye. "Now, I notice that you have... Obtained a Persona. Excellent.">Write in
>>27682023"How exactly does that work? Yosuke and Chie got theirs by assimilating their Shadows, but Yukiko and I didn't have to. Is that related to the keys we just got, somehow?"
>>27682023"Why is it that there a shadow yu that isn't me? Do you know who this other yu is?"
>>27682023Yukiko has a key, does she have access to this room?
>>27682282Metaknowledge. We have no reason to connect the key to the door. Just ask Igor about the key.
>>27682491Theres a door. We have a key. Keys go into doors. The door showed up after we got the key. Do the math
>>27682491>>27682523Also, this:>Open the door>"No one but me can see it, huh?" You mutter, pulling that key out of your pocket. >From the new shine it's taken, it looks like they're related...
>>27682523No, keys go into keyholes. And given that Yukiko has a key, but couldn't see the door, that's not nearly enough of a connection.>>27682802... but that is. (I missed it on the first go-round.)
>>27682023"What is a Wildcard? How come Yukiko & I didn't need to beat our Shadow? What does it mean to have the Wild Card, or to have chosen the Deck before? Is the thing kidnapping people a Shadow, Persona or something else?"
Well, I think we lost OP again.Who wants to take bets?
>Questions"How exactly does that work? Hanamura and Satonaka got their own by assimilating their Shadows, but Amagi and I.... didn't. Is that related to the keys we just got, somehow?" You ask. Igor's eyebrows rise at that. "My my. You certainly have been busy." He says, grinning. "Though the latter development is quite interesting.""In the case of most, a Persona is gained when they face an unpleasant truth about themself, often in the form of a Shadow Self, and come to accept it. The Persona acts as a symbol of their new revelation." He continues, holding out one hand. "However...""A being can be granted a Persona by a sufficiently powerful entity, bypassing the 'facing oneself' requirement. Their initial powers are, alas, less well suited than a natural Persona, yet have far greater potential as the person's power is added to the gifted power." "And, of course, there are artificial Persona, made through human effort and science, but you are unlikely to encounter any during your stay here." He finishes, clasping his hands back together. "...So Amagi and I had ours granted to us?" You ask, after a moment to digest everything."Of this Amagi you speak, most certainly. Your own, I cannot say."...Not encouraging."Alright. Next, what is a Wild Card?" You say, shaking your head. "Both Satonaka and Hanamura had two Shadows that I fought, and only one turned into a Persona. The non-Persona one of Satonaka called me that in an odd voice before it was destroyed."Igor seems to think about that for a moment, before Margaret speaks."A Wild Card is a person with the capacity to use multiple Persona." She says, holding up the book at her side. "I have the ability to record Persona in this tome, for later recalling"...Huh. Another burst of that information seems to seep into your brain with that information. Merely think of the Persona that you want to use to summon it, huh?>Write in
>>27683460Ask about the key, and how/why we got it. Go on to ask about Yukiko getting one as well.
>>27683499>>27683460Rather, point out that he avoided our question about it.
>>27683460"So how do I get new Personae? Do I find them, or make them, or what? And you still didn't tell me what those keys are."
>THE KEYS"...You know, you never answered me about the keys." You say, turning slightly to face Igor again. "Why do both I and Amagi have them, and what do they do?""They allow one to access the Velvet Room." He says, shaking his head. "If there are two now, there will most certainly be more later."That doesn't sound too bad..."Which is a pity, since the Velvet Room is currently unable to support much more than one Wild Card due to our master's absence." He continues, letting realization form. "But worry not. As I said, I suspect our fortunes are soon taking a turn for the better. Just recently, a new well of power we can draw upon has opened, and we shall be back to our former glory should things play out as I expect.">Write in
>>27683953That's good, do you know anything about my other self?
>>27683953"Ominously phrased, that last. Should I be worried?"Now that I think about it, it's entirely possible Yukiko just crit-failed her Notice check to see the door.
>>27683953"Yes, just as planned. Anywho, teddie says Shadow Yu and some other shadows are different. What's different about them?"
>>27684055That's probably a good cue to show him the masks that FYosuke and FChie left behind.
>...That's... good?"...Well, that's something. Should I be worried?" You ask, looking at Igor curiously. "Not at all." He says, shaking his head. "In fact, it should prove quite beneficial to yourself, as well.""...Alright." You pause, thinking of your next question. "There's a... I guess bear out there that said those two Shadows I mentioned that didn't become Persona smell 'wrong'. He also said that a Shadow that looks like me and sounds like me, and claim's he 'Yu Narukami's' Shadow, but hasn't tried to attack me smells wrong.""Know what's up with that?" You ask.Igor is silent for a short while, seemingly thinking about his answer. "It seems that you have proven yourself to be a figurative Wild Card, as well as literal." He says finally, nodding. "Those Shadows sound much like artificial ones. Be wary around them, for they are created to kill and -replace- the original, not merely a person's defense mechanism for their own faults.""It sounds very much like this Shadow of which you speak has taken on the aspects of the Fool arcana, and perhaps even some of the reversed aspects. Recklessness and rebellion first among them." He continues, his grin widening. "This shall be a more interesting year than I had first guessed.">Write in
>>27685275>Recklessness and rebellion first among them.this means he's fighting his programming?Fuck yes. And now we know why he didn't want to be around the sensitive stuff.If we can get him his own identity and sense of self, he'd be a real boy, right? and then we wouldn't have to worry about him?
>>27685324Hahahaha.New plan for dealing with fake shadows: have Fake!Yu try to catalyze their personal growth, as if they were Social Links.
>>27685275"Wow this is a friggin mess."
>>27685275I believe this is the first time the Arcana have been mentioned. But it's not implausible that Yu could have a casual knowledge of Tarot and be able to extrapolate from there."Is this a Tarot thing? That would explain the numbers on the masks the artificial Shadows left behind, if they corresponded to major arcana. Yosuke's had a "I" on it, so that would be the Magician. And Satonaka's was "VII", which is Chariot, I think. So a Shadow's traits are somehow connected to their arcana, then? Is it just the major arcana that are important, or do the lesser suites matter, too?"
>>27685275"What is the black and orange thing dragging people into TV? What did it mean when we chose the Deck over one of the cards? Did that make me a Wild Card, or something else?"
>...Clusterfuck, huh?>Tarot thing?>Orange and black monster"This is just a huge mess, isn't it?" You ask, reaching up to rub the bridge of your nose."Oh, quite possibly the worst I have intervened in in more than a decade." Igor replies, his tone one of joy. "Which is quite revitalizing, since it means the game is once more in motion.""Fear not, though. You, I am quite certain, are safe from having a Shadow form of you, natural or artificial." He continues, getting a look of surprise from you. "I cannot say why at this moment, but you may rest assured that no such Shadow will spontaneously appear to harass you." "Alright." You say, shaking your head. "You mentioned the Fool. Is that a tarot thing? It would explain the marks on these masks those fake Shadows dropped. Magician and Chariot, if I recall the deck correctly." You set the masks on the table, getting a look of surprise from both Igor and Margaret. "My, my... " Igor says, looking at them. "This year keeps getting more and more interesting...""These appear to be the catalysts used to form the Shadows you vanquished." He says after a moment's examination. "If these were regained by their creator, they could be called forth once more.""Alas, I cannot keep these in here." He shakes his head sadly. "I must ask that you keep them in a safe place instead of taking them into my care."...You get to hold onto the monster forming masks. Fun."One more thing," You say, getting a small snort from Margaret. "Both Hanamura and Satonaka said a black-suited clown with an orange mask threw them-"Igor's hands slam onto the table, cutting you off. Looking at his face, his insane grin has vanished ."That abomination is but a symptom of what is occuring." He says, now glaring at the masks. "It is an abomination known as JOKER, that has not been seen in more than a decade, that, when last seen, at least, relied upon a human host to grant it power."(1/2)
(2/2)...His reaction seems to have taken Margaret by surprise as well, from her expression. "Now, I would suggest that you step outside." Igor says, back to his normal, somewhat creepy self. "Your friends must be quite worried about your disappearance.">Write in
>>27686138"... Right. Sorry about the question-barrage; I've been short on reference material. I'll see you later?"
>>27686120>It is an abomination known as JOKERis there an abomination known as CYCLONE to go with it?>>27686138...yeah, maybe we should go. Wave goodbye to the assistant, too. No need to just leave and be rude.
>>27686120wow he went from amused to fucking PISSED in a second thereThis Joker guy must be a total cunt
>>27686138Joker must be pretty big ass douche bag to make Igor be that mad.Apologize for about the whole questioning thing and say goodbye to that fine ass lady
>>27686138"I wonder what entering the door looked like from their perspective? Well, I'd best be leaving. Until next time, Igor, Margaret."
>>27686366>>27686422So very much. Eternal Punishment is an outright painful game at points. And now we have to put up with the same shit. Here's hoping the rumor rule doesn't start working, too, or else we are boned. Massively boned. We don't need any more JOKERs running around.
>>27686488.....Can Persona speak? I fucking love the prep battle chat between Apollo and the reverse one with deep voice. That was fucking awesome.Are there fusion spells?Wait a minute....two yu...the [Other Side]
>LeaveGathering the masks, you give a nod to both. "I apologize for the questioning." You say, standing up. "Thank you for the information. I'll see you two later."Heading towards the door, you feel a spark of intuition."...Say, this place feels a little.. Empty." You say, turning back around. "Why do I feel like there's someone else who should be here?"Igor just smiles. "Ah, we had a much higher occupancy previously, when my master was still around." He says, waving offhandedly. "Perhaps it is just echoes of their presences you are feeling." ...No arguing with that. "Well, thanks again for the information." You say, shaking your head and opening the door. "I'll drop by again soon enough."Stepping out, you see the your friends standing around, looking at the space where the door is. "The hell have you been?" Kanji asks as he catches sight of you. "Ya just vanished.">Write in
>>27686591>yanot going to take the opportunity to make a "yu" joke, Kanji?"Went on a Limmo ride. Didn't turn out as fun as I hoped. How about you guys?"
>>27686591"Not completely sure myself. But I had a nice chat with a very knowledgeable fellow who, at worst, isn't against us. Taught me a bit about Shadows and Personas. I'll give you the cliff's notes."
Did OP split while posting was down?
>>27686591"I went to a world you may not understand, now step aside, everyone, and let Yukiko go too"Alternatively ask her if she had any strange dreams recently
Shadow girls best girls
I don't even know whether this needs to be bumped or should we wait for a new thread
>>27692623Working on it. I crashed like 10 minutes after the downtime, with a half-finished update.
>Not really sure."I went on a limo ride that wasn't as fun as I thought." You say, getting a dirty look from the rest of the party. "Alright, alright." You say, shaking your head at this. "I'm not really sure myself. But the person I was speaking to knows a lot about Shadows and Persona. At the worst, he's not against us."Yosuke shakes his head. "Man, first the Midnight Channel, now this. You're just full of surprises, aren't you?" He says, looking at you. "Give us a rundown."....You passed on the basics of what Igor told you..."...So, on top of whatever's throwing people in here, there's something making fake Shadows?" Chie asks, shaking her head. "Man, this case is getting tougher to solve the more we know...""No kiddin'..." Kanji says, shaking his head. "I'm having trouble believin' all of this, even havin' seen it myself...""Yeah." You say, looking around. You can tell that everyone seems tired... Yosuke seems to be thinking about something,."You know... We aren't in the best of shape." He says, shaking his head. "We should probably leave.""Yes..." Yukiko says, before turning to you. "You do know how to get out, don't you?""Yeah." You say, before pointing at the Shadow. "He can open a portal back to our world."The Shadow shakes his head. "Sorry, bud. I'm spent." He says, sighing. ...Of course."So what?" Yosuke seems upset. "Does that mean we-""Well, if you're willing to bear with me, I can open a portal to your world for you instead!" Teddie interrupts , seemingly starting to concentrate.A stack of TVs falls from the sky suddenly, landing and turning on with a crackle. "...Huh.">Write in
>>27692666Thanks Satan!You damn lawfag
>>27692713We should really pester Yukiko about recent dreams. Also maybe walk her to Daidara and see if she or us can see the door there

>LeaveYou look at the tower of TVs..."Well," You say, turning to face the Shadow and Teddie. "Thanks for the help. We'll probably come back soon enough to do some investigating in this world."The others nod, and start walking towards the TVs..."Oh, Hanamura, Satonaka." You say, remembering something and catching the attention of Yosuke and Chie. "Both of you were reported as 'missing'. You'll probably want cover stories."They nod, pausing for a moment. Kanji seems to be thinking as well.."Uh..." He says, looking sheepish. "What about your clothes?"...You look down at the rip in your jacket's arm, and can see Yosuke looking at his side.FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF->Stealth it [1d20]>See if there's anything that could be used to repair it

>>27693837Sorry I expressed my self poorly, every reason is based on the worst of an aliment, musubi for neutral and etc. My point is that in the end neutral is not different from Law or Chaos, as all have there ideal GOOD END where it's a better world, but can also screw up

Checking on the time, you note that a few hours have passed since you entered the TV world. ...Yosuke and Chie hurry home to assure their parents that they're alright. You, Kanji, and Yukiko remain near Junes, the latter two talking. >Head home>Go somewhere else (write in)

>>27694473>[x] Head home
>>27694473Ask Yukiko if she had any weird dreams recently and take her to Daidara's to see if she sees the door, on the way explain the key. Kanji can go home

>Ask both about the day, then Kanji about relationship to fabric store, then Yukiko about odd dreams?
>>27694898Yeah, I guessI think we really gotta walk Yukiko past Daidara's though
>>27694143The Reason of Yosuga defend an society ruled and organized by power, a meritocracy, which is chaos, its only that it shows chaos worst by defending that the weak should die
>>27694935Yes, it should be funny seeing Kanji's reaction when we discover about his home
>>27694898Sounds good. Should be fun to see how Kanji responds to learning another guy thinks sewing is cool. As for the dreams, our recap did include thing Igor said about Yukiko's Persona being granted instead of naturally formed, right? Otherwise, that question is going to totally come out of left field.
>>27694975Her followers are angels for fucks sake, and her general is Thor, who is a famous lawfagBesides>organizedThat's not the way of chaos. And in Yosuga-land weak are supressed or killed for uselessness, in wurld of STR they kinda die by themselves.Futhermore, Kagutsuchi is sorta projection of YHVH on Vortex World, he'd never approve of anything chaos
Test post. Is shit working again?
You guys still planing on telling Dojima about all this weird shit going down?
>>27695014Yes, it did. Sorry about the delay, got distracted by hitting things with a leaf.
>>27694898I got one question OP.Can Youske do moonsaults?
>>27695014Yes, it did. Sorry for the delay. Got distracted by hitting things with a magic leaf.
>>27695014Yeah, it was included. Sorry about the delay, though. Got distracted by hitting things with a boomerang.
>>27694898Sure. men who don't know how to cook to feed themselves and unable to fix or create their own clothes are not men. The last two days been damn slow. We need some spice...or less college and work.
Why is 4chan so unreliable today?
>>27695377it's been horribly unreliable for me since yesterday.
>Ask both about the day, then Kanji about relationship to fabric store, then Yukiko about odd dreams"So," You say, cutting into the conversation. "What do you think about the weirdness that was today?"They both seem to think about it."Really," Yukiko starts, shaking her head. "It's a lot to take in. I've found out that there's an entire world filed with monsters made out of the human subconscious... That I have magical powers... A whole load of things."Kanji nods at that. "Yeah. Looks like we're gonna be in for a wild ride..." He says, shaking his head. "I can see that." You reply, shrugging. "But we've got to do this, since we're the only ones who can."This gets a nod from the two."Say, Tatsumi..." You start after a brief lull in the conversation. "You aren't one of the Tatsumi of Tatsumi Textiles, are you?"He expression is a bit startled. "What's it to ya?" He asks, expression changing to something of a glare. "I'm planning to make a doll for my cousin, and was wondering if you know any good materials to use."...His expression changes once more to one of shock."Wait. You sew too?" He asks."I'll take that as a 'yes'." You say, shrugging. "And yeah, I'm just starting to learn. I figured it might come in handy."He nods at this, before looking at his watch. . "Aw, crap. Ma's gonna be pissed if I don't get home for dinner..." He mutters, shaking his head. "See you two around."With that, he leaves, giving a wave at the two of you.There's an awkward silence, before-"Um, do you know what-""Tell me, have you had any-"Both you and Yukiko pause, looking at each other as the questions stop."You first." She says, shrugging. "Well..." You start, looking around briefly. "Have you had any odd dreams lately?" She seems surprised by this. "No, nothing out of the ordinary." She says, shaking her head. "When you summoned your Persona for the first time, did you see a blue light out of the corner of your eye?">Write in
>>27695377I blame wizards. Fucking wizards.
>>27695492>blue light>but couldn't see door to velvet roomPHILEMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONIn all seriousness, reply to the affirmative and ask if she's noticed anything odd around town lately. Perhaps around Daidara's?
>>27695507Yo OP, any word on those moonsaults?
>>27695492You know, I kind of get the feeling that Yukiko gets to be special this time around to capitalize on /tg/'s tendency to waifu hard in quests, and set up your OTP.Am I close? Honestly, I don't mind if that's the case, personally.
>>27695584Dude its a Persona 4 quest. Everyone is the waifu.Only for once waifuing provides mechanical benefits.
>>27695611Well, I meant it as a not-so-subtle push to get us to pick Yukiko specifically.I haven't actually played much P4, but I know in P3 you can't actually hook up with more than one person unless you're playing the girl in P3P. Could you actually go for a legit harem in P4?
>>27695637I think it is just an implied fade to black but I am pretty sure you can.
>>27695637Pretty much really.EVERYONE, the guys and gals all want Yu pretty damn hard. As far as actually seeing a pairing here, I'd go with Kanji over any of the other options. But that's partly because I'd like to see a thread where /tg/ picks a husbando over a waifu.Granted, waifuing/husbandoing of all genders is what Social Links does.
>>27695584Off the mark by a bit. If Kanji had rolled better, he'd ALSO have caught sight of the light. I don't even pair Yukiko with Yu. >>27695611Hah. True enough.>So, say "Yeah, I did" and ask about oddities in town?
>>27695676>But that's partly because I'd like to see a thread where /tg/ picks a husbando over a waifu.I don't see that being terribly likely, seeing as /tg/ loves manning the /u/boats if we're playing a girl in a quest.
>>27695738I know, though Kanji just makes me ask /y/ I shouldn't go for it.
>>27695827If the anime is anything to go by then I am pretty sure Yu isn't gay.
>>27695851Far as I'm concerned, I take the anime's worth as a grain of salt. In the game, Yu can flirt with the guys all he wants and then there's all the stuff with Teddie in Golden as well.
>>27695887At the end of the day, Yu is very definitely bi is basically what I'm saying.
>>27695684But we didn't, as far as I recall. I'm looking at the thread where we got Izanagi, and there's no mention of it. We did hear a voice calling out to us, though, that could be related.
>>27696032Speaking of Izanagi, Did we get reverse Izanagi from that card we found?
>>27695684>>27696032If we did, tell her so. If not, tell her so, but mention the voice.
>>27696067I think it was just the Reversed Fool we found. I don't actually remember if we got a description or not.
>>27695955I always saw that as being more about trolling than genuine attraction. Not that Yu couldn't be bi, it's just that his sexual orientation doesn't have anything to do with his hitting on his friends. Yu is the king of gay chicken.
>>27696117Do I need to get the Teddie kissing screencap again? It's more than 'trolling'.
>>27696067>>27696092Hey.What if.Hear me out.What if Shadow Yu gets a natural Shadow confronting him about his conflicted feelings towards wanting to help us vs his programming as a tool of Joker/Nyarly/whatever, and he beats and and gets Magatsu Izanagi as his Persona?Wouldn't that be cool?
>>27696092From the thread where we go it:>A quick glance shows that it's gained a picture on it, the same as on your own card, but... Upside down, regardless of how you turn it. So definitely the Reversed Fool. Might not be Magatsu Izanagi, but it's probably something interesting.
>>27696143Not that guy but Technically teddie Is a stuffed animal shadow who grew a body so Its iffy if he counts.
>>27696178I'd personally count it since he does identify as male and all, but that's a whole other debate than the present one.
>>27696143Teddie doesn't count. Everyone's gay for Teddie. Besides, I acknowledge that he could be bi. I just think that he mostly flirts because he's flirtatious, not because of any genuine attraction. It's the same as when he flirts with the female party members. Yu's sexual preferences are entirely unrelated to his desire to make people flustered.
>>27696144And this would be insanely badass.Especially since Magatsu Izanagi is Izanagi after returning from the Underworld, but before washing it's filth off.
>>27696217All I was thinking was if he had the capacity to grow body's could he potentially grow a girl body?
>>27696239Especially if we get a Fusion Spell between the two of the using Magatsu Izanagi and Izanagi-no-Okami. I don't know what we'd call it, but it would be pretty amazing.
>>27696253Did he really grow a "boy" body though? Haven't played the games (when I have time I'll fix that I swear!) but so far he's come off as pretty much a non-gendered animated teddie bear. So not really a guy so much as an oversized plushy who just wants to be hugged/safe (and may or may not have a hidden sinister agenda).
>Nope, ask about other weirdnessYou shake your head. "All I heard was a voice." You say."I heard one, too." Yukiko replies. "It said something about 'from the sea of' that got cut off, and I knew what to do to the card."Information flashes into your head- the entire thing said by your card is instantly known.'I art thou, thou art I... From the sea of souls, I awaken', huh? Interesting...."Well, nothing we can do about that." You sigh. "I don't suppose you've noticed anything strange in town before today?"She shakes her head. "Just the fog, though... the girl working at the hobby shop has been acting oddly when I've gone by to pick up orders from the textile store."You file that away for later as she takes a look at her watch. "Oh, I need to be getting home now. We're a little shorthanded at the moment, so I'm chipping in." She says, giving you a wave and running off....>Go home>Go elsewhere (Write in)
>>27696308Only thing that would be even better is combining all of the Izanagi's for a combo.>>27696316Yes, he did grow a male human body over time. Pretty easy to find an image of it if you wanna bother.>>27696330Let's head on home. It's time to have a nice dinner and get some well earned rest. I'm sure Dojima and Nanako are probably wondering where we are as well.
Rolled 19>>27696316Pretty sure he spends a fair bit of time trying to tap on to the girls.
>>27696316Probably, yeah. Teddie gets a medical examination at one point, and the results come back normal, so presumably the doctor would have commented on him being intersex or neuter. His human form is presumably male, then. Though he does get more gendered after growing a body, so he could be neuter and it's the act of acquiring neurochemistry that gives him a definite gender. He certainly doesn't have his fascination with girls until after he becomes a real boy. So it could be that it was an arbitrary choice to grow a male body instead of a female one, and that naturally lead to it imprinting a gender on him. Maybe Teddie decided to be a boy because he wanted to be more like Yu, I don't know.
>>27696403Only one way to test this. Next time we see Teddie we have to tie a giant pink ow on one of his/her/its ears.
>>27696403>Maybe Teddie decided to be a boy because he wanted to be more like Yu, I don't know.I think this actually is his canon reason, been awhile since I've seen the scene.
>>27696330So the hobby shop girl, who we've all been guessing is Marie, responds oddly to Yukiko? Well, that has some unsettling implications if we're right about that assumption.>Go homeWe just fought a bunch of horrible monsters, got magic powers, and learned that Inaba is home to a serial killer possessed by an eldritch horror. We need a rest after all that. We'll hug our adorable cousin/ little sister, make a nice dinner, and get some sleep. Things like repairing our sword at Daidara's or telling Uncle Dojima about the TV World can come later.
>So, home it is?
>>27696741Yep. Silver Wild Card needs food badly.
Can someone remind me again why we were going to tell Dojima about the TV world?
>>27697013Because there is no good reason not to.
>>27697025There's not a good reason too either. After all by doing so we basically give the rest of the group carte blanch to tell whoever they want as well.
>>27697081Well he is a detective who is trying to figure out this case and he is related to us, so he is pretty trustworthy.He is also an adult who I imagine would be much better at fighting shadows than random fifteen year olds, even without access to his gun.
>>27697125I personally think we might wanna wait another day as to telling him. But he would indeed be better at fighting them as even without his gun, I wouldn't be surprised if he had some combat training.
>>27697159As long as we tell him I don't mind. We don't have to do it today. We should take some time to rest up anyway.
>>27697125>>27697159To me it's more of the fact that we might be breaking the groups trust. Plus Dojima is probably not the best person to take to the TV world. He is not exactly all there, as Nanako can attest too. Plus what about the others in the group telling their parents? Or telling the police. By talking to Dojima about this a who mess of doors open. Cause and effect is a bitch. Do remember how badly he reacted to finding out Yu was involved with the Cases in the game and that was after starting up his social link, which we aren't even close to doing here. What makes you think he would continue to let us keep going there?
>>27697159Agreed. Talk to the rest of the Investigation Team about it, first. We'll all work out together how much we're going to tell other people about this. Besides, Dojima probably isn't home tonight. He'll be working, still.
>As an aside... Telling ANY of the police WILL have a consequence. >Just not one you'd expect.
>>27697190A good point. Even if we do decide to tell him, it's way too early right now. We need to think our options through carefully rather than haphazardly considering who could bring more to the table as a party member.>>27697225And this does make me think that waiting to see following events after this day is a good option.
>>27697190We don't bring anyone but teens with emotional problems into the TV world anyway how would Dojima be much worse off?To be honest the police would probably be better suited to all this anyway.
>>27697190Because we have magic powers, and he doesn't. How can he keep us from going in when he can't even enter on his own? That means it's in his interest to let us go in, because he has no other choice to deal with this case. And then he'd be coordinating with us to make sure we have the information and resources to do it safely. Or as safe as going into another dimension to fight shadow-fiends can be.
>Home!You decided to head home for dinner. After a brief walk, you step into the Dojima residence, your coat set aside for later... Repair, you guess. Heading into the living room, you see Dojima and Nanako sitting at the small table, eating. A place seems to be set aside for you. "Ah, there you are." Dojima says, frown on his face. "I thought I asked you to head straight home from school with Nanako..." "You did. But a couple of friends of mine invited me to go with them to Junes' food court, so..." You shrug. "Well, you didn't say anything about after getting home."He chuckles. "Well, you got me there." He says, shaking his head. "But be careful, would you? Your mother would have my head if I let anything happen to you..."You nod and take a seat. ....Dinner goes by quickly, and you're soon sitting and watching the news with Nanako...>Talk to Nanako>Talk to Dojima>Write in.
>>27697225Wait, we won't get arrested as a crazy person and have all the recent crimes pinned on us? That's quite surprising actually.
>>27697294You know that everyone who goes in can get magic powers right? I mean kanji still doesn't have any.
>>27697266Because their emotional problems aren't as bad. Dojima is actively avoiding spending time with Nanako and doesn't see what he is doing. He throws himself into his work and avoids everything else, being solely focused on the murder of his wife. the worst that the Investigation teams problems get it Naoto thinking that she has to change how people perceive her gender in order to pursue the dreams of being a detective.As for the police, read above. Plus I still feel iffy about Adachi who is also on the police force.
>>27697225Would it result in a consulting officer with experience in similar cases being brought in from Sumaru City to assist Dojima?
>>27697359>No. It would not. Yet.
>>27697328>Talk to Nanako>>27697350Agreed. In the game, it was stated that the power of a person's Shadow depended on how deeply in denial they are of what the Shadow represents. And Dojima is PRETTY deep in the denial department.
>>27697294He can force us to just act as a bridge between the real world and the TV world for the police. We don't have jack shit on him, because if we refuse we are saying to him that we are willing to people die if it means that he will let us continue to get involved. No one takes a teenager as seriously as they do an adult.
>>27697328>Talk to DojimaBuild that social link. Build it up the sky!
>>27697350>Dojima is actively avoiding spending time with Nanako and doesn't see what he is doing.I thought he just kept getting shafted by people getting sick and stuff. I remember at least one time he stuck Adachi with all the work so he could hang out with Nanako at some fair.Also whats wrong with Adachi? He's such a friendly fellow.
>>27697387Yeah but if he gets over his denial he will have a way stronger Persona than a normal.
>>27697423He is genuinely overworked, but he's also afraid to spend time with Nanako because he thinks he's unfit as a father. He has no idea how to do this nurturing thing, so he hides from it instead of risking making a mistake raising her. The idea that not being there is just as bad does not occur to him, at least not consciously, until Yu confronts him with it.
>One for Nanako, one for Dojima.>Choose.

>>27697749dohohohoyour 1 is showing
>Talk to DojimaYou stand up, heading over to the kitchen table where your uncle is reading a newspaper and taking a seat. "Want to see what this old man can tell you about town, huh?" He asks, looking over the paper. "That, and about, well, yourself and Nanako." You say, shrugging. "Well, this will be a long chat, then. " He chuckles....You spend a few hours talking to Dojima. ...About a half-hour after Nanako goes to sleep, he sets down the paper, looking you in the eyes. "You know..." He says, shaking his head. "About half an hour before you got home, I got a call saying that two of the missing people had shown up again. Looks like those kids had run off and gotten lost." "You wouldn't happen to know anything about that, would you?">Write in
>>27697917"Kids, you say? Was it Hanamura and Satonaka? They're my classmates, and they didn't show up today. Glad to hear they're alright."
>>27697917"yep freed them fro shadow monsters that come out of the tv." SARCASM hard
>>27697917"Who were they? You never said who it was that was missing."
>>27697917Can we use persona in the normal world.If so, Tell Dojima everything that happened. Tell him not to say anything because of mass fucking panics can happen and the responsible one will escape in the chaos.
>>27698083Fairly certain we can't, at least without an Evoker a la P3.
>>27698121Oh shit son.
>>27698111>>27698121HAHTell him and explain slowly so that he will not freak out. Tell him there others like us due to the dude talking about somethings happening 10 years ago.Let not make this become some kind of incident that kill everyone here. Someone or some people must have at least tried to tell the truth but either were killed or were considered insane.
>>27698164Well, in Arena the P4 protagonists couldn't summon their Personae in the real world with their tarot cards, while the P3 crew was surprised by the fact that they didn't need their Evokers to summon their Personae in the TV world.
I still say that we don't tell him. Especially not this early. So would everyone please hold off on it? I really don't think it would end well.Just say that we're glad they showed up since we had gotten to know them at school.
Rolled 15>>27698164Let's not
>>27698164We never heard that plus that is a rather big jump in logic to make. I still say this is a bad idea especially when we were told that telling ANY of the police will have consequences.
>Tell him>Lie [Roll Bluff]
>>27698181Correct me if I'm wrong GoldenOP but>TRUE REINCARNATION
>>27698249>Tell himFuck Canon, Besides, He can help us find clues. This shit clearly went off the rails.
>>27698164OP Already said there would be consequences for telling the police, and I don't want whatever organization is artificially creating shadows to make us "disappear" thanks to their agents in law enforcement, mkay?Now, if we ever meet up with >pic related, well, that's a different story.
>>27698249I say tell him.
>>27698249Can we do something like >>27697966 where we aren't technically lying?
>>27698284>>27698284Just Tell Dojima.>>27698284OF COURSE
>>27698249>>Lie [Roll Bluff]
>>27698284He also said we wouldn't expect the consequences. They might even be good for all we know.
>>27698249Lie. The opportunity cost, people, the risk is too high. What this >>27697966 said.
Rolled 17>>27698249Less lie and more misdirect. Tell him we are glad they showed back up as we had started to become friends with them at school. Technically not a lie.I'll roll a d20 though
>>27698286Sure. You're still going to have to roll Bluff, though.
Rolled 8>>27698311Then lie without actually lying.
>>27698249Half truths and evasiveness. Ask him how we'd possibly know anything about that, he didn't mention who it was that was missing. Sure, our friends Yosuke and Chie weren't in class today, but we saw them after school, so we just figured that something came up. Is that what you're talking about, Uncle Ryotaro?
>>27698311>>27698249Rolling for lies. We get the Lovers expanded range for this, being a social check, right?
>>27698365That's odd. Looks like I typed "dice+1.20" by accident. That isn't even close to the d key, how'd I do that?
>>27698214 I still have yet to hear a decent in character reason not to tell Dojima and besides op just said there will be a consequence it doesn't have to be bad one. To me it only makes sense to tell him and could only lead to interesting things.
Seriously, Don;t you guys want things to be different? This is the exact same shit as canon. If you want to do the exact thing, play the game.Peter Parker Quest and Bleach quest are so fucking good because they DIFFERENT FROM CANON.
>>27697917>two of the missing peopleWait, what? Who else is missing?
>>27698385One, we need to consult the rest of the team. Two, it could open up the floodgates. I think Dojima trusts the people he was working with for years over his nephew he has seen since he was a toddler. Three, Dojima is our guardian meaning that he views our well being as his responsibility. Meaning he will try to take it over while keeping us out.
And yet the dice seem to approve not being a dumbass and blabbing right away.WE CAN TELL DOJIMA LATER.Let's see how the following day or two plays out for us first and then consider our options.
>>27698388Things are already different from cannon. Heck Spiderman is a comic, it barely HAS a cannon. Just because you want things to be different it does not mean that you rush into things rashly.
Rolled 12, 19, 19, 20 = 70>>27698414>The announcer and one more who you haven't found out the name of.>SINCE you're doing this, I'm making a nice roll here.
>>27698440was directed at>>27698388Don't know how it disappeared. But yes, we do need to consult with the team as well first.
>>27698385Because we haven't talked it over with the group, yet. We should make sure they're all clear on how we're proceeding with this. We'll tell him. Just not right now. We'll come up with a plan of investigation, then tell Dojima about what we've uncovered before we go any further.>>27698388Dude, we're already plenty different from canon. We've got JOKER, artificial Shadows, half the party recruited and empowered on the first day, and Yukiko's been touched by some sort of spirit. We're already way off course, don't worry about it.
>>27698457Two 19s and a 20?Fuck.
>>27698457>>27698467>See? I told you it was nice.
>>27698433I would Like to point out that While Dojima could stop Yu from going places he would have a much harder time stopping Izanagi.
>>27697917Tell him, demonstrate TV thing. Then explain EVERYTHING. There may or may not still be a human culprit, if the Shadow is cooperating with it. Or more than one culprit, but supernatural forces are at work.
>>27698479So your telling me you want to threaten our uncle? Yeah I'm sure that would go over well. Because that is basically saying I have power and you don't therefore I don't have to listen to jack shit you say. Can you say reversed Hierophant?
>>27698433All right I see your point. We should hold off until we talk to the group. I just do not want to see this turn into a constant pointless problem like in cannon.
>Since this debate has gone on long enough...>Bluff has the majority of votes. >Writing
>>27698514No Im just saying if he locks us up in some room we can Jimmie the door open with that bigass blade thing.
If we do tell Dojima (possibly as a reaction to him pressuring us because he just saw through our Bluff), ask him to touch the TV screen first.Then go up and touch it ourselves.Then tell him everything about the incident today. Suggest that he leave it out of the official report.
>>27698518I guess the thing is I don't see it as pointless. It could turn into a very big deal. The only reason other people were brought in was because of the fact that other people were forcefully involved. Once you start bringing people in though a lot of things start happening and a lot of bad possibilities come forth. After all Look at how Adachi was playing the team for suckers even when they hadn't let the police know about things.
>>27698522But...what about recruiting Dojima? ;_; This is finally the opportunity.
>Jedi Truth"Kids, you said? Was it Hanamura and Satonaka?" You ask, a look of concern on your face. "They're my classmates, and they didn't show up today. Glad to hear they're alright.">Bluff 20! vs Sense Motive 20!You squirm under Dojima's glare. "Yeah, it was" He says after a minute, shaking his head. "Glad to hear you're getting along with your classmates so early on.""Still, it's good that those kids have been found." He continues, picking up his paper again. "Shame the other two are still missing. Maybe they decided to run off together, or something..."...Who would decide to run off with that announcer?Wait... >Write in
>>27698654Okay, I forget here. Have we heard that news story or not?
>>27698654"The other two? ...You mean that announcer lady and the politician?"
>>27698654>"Dojima, if you want the truth, come to my room."
>>27698654"They're dead, Dojima."
>>27698744>>27698757Didn't we JUST have a big debate about this?
>>27698744>>27698757>thingsnottosaytoapolicedetective.jpgAre you trying to get us brought in for questioning?
>>27698654"... I was going to ask, but I guess that means Namatame's the other missing person?"
>>27698824This is the first time in the quest people were actually against it. Previously, people were hype about it but GoldenOP didn't give us the opportunity to talk to him.
>>27698848It's been a constant debate back and forth, actually. People saying yay, people saying neigh.Frankly, I just want to actually get some time to scout out the actual situation along with talking to the group about it first.
>>27698848Yes, but>They're deadYes, let's tell the detective that though nobody knows where they are, just between us and him, we know for certain they're dead as doornails.>if you want the truth, come to my roomThat just sounds half rape, half "I'm gonna inflict bodily harm"
>>27698886>It's been a constant debate back and forthNot in the other threads. This upsets me a bit, because the one time GOP finally gives us the opportunity, the people who say no get a majority in this one thread. The inconsistency of the userbase in quests suck. >>27698909Then you show them the TV trick. It's possible to reveal things with tact you know.
>>27698909Agreed, those are just HORRIBLE things to say in general.
>>27698909>Can we talk? Then lead to room. This isn't rocket science. OP can write out the specific dialogue so it wont come off badly.
>>27698654"Wait, are you talking about Taro Namatame? I didn't know he had gone missing, too. Damn, Well, here's hoping that's all it is"

>>27698988>>STICK YOUR HAND IN THE TV DOITDOITDOIT>So... That means the other one is Taro Namatame?
>>27698988I think it's still a bit too early to tell Dojima what we know, because, in-character anyway, WE barely know what we know. The second one is just a terrible idea.And how do we know about Namatame? I don't think he's been mentioned once in-character.
>>27698988>So that means the other one is Taro Namatame?>>27698998>>27699001Dang it was no one reading before! I swear I'm talking to a wall.
>>27698557I've been convinced not to tell him now but still eventually it will get hard to justify. It is (or will be don't remember if we've gotten confirmation yet) a string of murders anything we do or don't do is a big deal. The risk of more people dying because we didn't want to involve at least one person more competent then us with much better resources should be just as big a concern as them not letting us personally be the ones to investigate. This is also just my personal bias but, I'd find it refreshing to see a character in this situation not to immediately think they aren't the only ones who can handle it and adults will only get in the way and make us brush our teeth and go to bed early.

>>27699024The story's been on the news for weeks, we would have heard the name. And I agree, it's still too early to tell him. We need to consolidate our facts. So I vote>So... That means the other one is Taro Namatame?

The only objection was back in thread 9, when we thought Dojima might somehow be criminally involved.>>27699024Yes, but that once was, and I quote, "the announcer woman involved in that whole Namatame scandal went missing a couple of days ago." And "that whole Namatame scandal" was national news. It's pretty obvious.
>>27699045This is what I've basically been saying. Don't tell him now, but try to get a grip on things and then tell him.
>>27698988>>STICK YOUR HAND IN THE TV DOITDOITDOIT
>>27699037Shh, it's fun.We'll just deal with the consequences.
>>27699064Right, we are ALREADY non-canon. So, why not go more non-canon?
>>27699045Dojima's resources won't help. The JOKER is something not of this earth. It could still be a person but what reason do we have to believe that at this moment. I'm just saying seems most people want this because 'whoopie! Non-cannon! Dojima party member!'
>>27699123> whoopie! Non-canon! Dojima party member!Are you implying this is a bad idea?
>>27699146>The more in denial somebody is about their faults, the more powerful their Shadow will be>Dojima is INCREDIBLY in denial about hisYes. It's a bad idea.
>>27699146At the moment and possibly altogether? Yeah, I am. I have already listed my reasons so I won't bother putting them in this post. People want to run things off the rails so badly that they seem to not be taking into consideration things that could backfire.
>>27699123This is pretty much the entire fucking reason I've heard in ALL of the threads with this argument. Only NOW are there even starting to be arguments of resources.Compared to the arguments of how telling too many people can go badly, the level of denial Dojima faces in regards to Shadow potential, and not to mention OP flatout stating there's gonna be "unexpected consequences" and his love of Kotomine, this sounds like nothing but a bad idea at the rate it's going.We need some fucking time for this option people, rushing it is going to hurt.
>>27699123Oh calm down. We let him go get himself and most of the police department killed, then we won't have nearly as much interference to tiptoe around. Heck, with the collapse of law enforcement, we could justify a takeover of the town "for the protection of the citizenry" or what not. It's Japan, they'll probably go for it once the Monsters make it into the public eye.

>>27699225>>>STICK YOUR HAND IN THE TV DOITDOITDOIT
>>27699203Quite agreed, WickedWitch. Not telling Dojima now is not the same as never telling him. We can't just blurt out "Uncle Dojima I know what happened to them they're in a magic world inside the TV and I went there and now I can shoot lightning!" Even if we show him the proof of it, that sudden info dump is going to freak him the hell out. We have to put some thought into how we tell him. It can wait at least one night. Telling him right now will do absolutely nothing. Mayumi Yamano's already dead, we're in no shape to hunt for Namatame, and we can't bring Dojima in there without risking our having to fight a really nasty Shadow. We will cause more harm than good if we go traipsing off into the TV again for the sake of a demonstration.
>>27699292>>We know this IC? hurrYou want an in-character reason not to tell him?We still know jack shit about what all of this MEANS, and we KNOW it sounds crazy. We need a little more time to figure this shit out for ourselves.
>>27699225>>So... that means the other one is Taro Namatame?
>>27699318It's not my fault if people aren't going to listen to reason about taking this slower. I'm not saying not to tell him, but we do need to take the time to think this whole situation over.

>>27699225>STICK YOUR HAND IN THE TV DOITDOITDOIT
>>27699375Kanji isn't a rational-minded adult who could have us put in a mental institution "for our own good."Plus, we didn't know as much then as we do now.
>>27699375We were under pretty heavy pressure to run off and save Yosuke and Chie at that time. We've got at least some breathing room for now.
>>27699375We didn't know the dangers, then. When we recruited Kanji the most we knew was that Shadows get nasty if you deny them, and could hurt Yosuke and Chie. Now we know there are evil clones and an otherworldly demon-parasite at work here. We have to be careful in how we introduce him to that.
>>27699391It's the poster being an asshole in trying to make anyone who disagrees with him extremely stupid and unreasonable.Like:>Uncle Dojima I know what happened to them they're in a magic world inside the TV and I went there and now I can shoot lightning!"

>>27699449No, we've been saying not yet.
>>27699375>>27699391I was mostly being facetious, but my point was that we can't actually do anything with Dojima right now that will be in any way productive. We can't take him in to show him, and putting our hand in the TV isn't, in itself, a big enough deal to convince him. It could just be a prank. And summoning Izanagi wouldn't work. P2 and P3 imply you can't see a Persona unless you have one or are in a spirit world. Which leaves smashing things with the naginata or summoning lightning as means of demonstrating we're not talking out of our ass. You think those are going to do anything but scare him?
>Taro Namatame, huh? 5>They're dead 0>Hand 7>Taro+Hand 1Well then. >>27699467I noticed. But since the linked to both/either of the vote calling posts...
>>27699442Are you counting both posts? Because if you're just counting the second, thats practically a revote. >>27699480No, just some. It's a nice way of saying "no".
>>27699538Fair point, but the result is so heavily in favor of "Stick your hand in the TV DOITDOITDOIT", that it's nicer to let the others have hope.
>>27699527YESSS>>27699538Some people probably voted twice though
>>27699317Can someone actually give me an answer to this post?
>>27699627Sure.>>27699292>>Because it's our uncle? And as a detective, he"ll be a great asset at you know, investigating and deductive logic.
>>27699665One a familial connection doesn't mean that much considering we have no idea what he is like. Second he may be a detective, but the thing about that is that this is firmly embedded in the supernatural which Dojima has no experience in just like us. And unlike us he doesn't have a big nosed wise man to explain things. Third, if you are going with the familial connection thing why would Dojima let his newphew who he is responsible for get into this shit? Heck why wouldn't he tell our parents and get us out of here?
>>27699705You wanted a reason and I gave you one. I'm sorry but I don't feel like clogging up the thread with 3 hours worth of arguing.
>>27699705It wasn't a very concise or good one either. It really makes me worry if that is all that is needed to be convinced that something is a good idea. By that logic we should tell the parents of the entire investigation team.
>Stick your hand in the TV....You know, it's pointless to just keep trying to deceive him. He's a DETECTIVE, for crying out loud.You sigh and stand up. "Alright," You say, walking towards the powered off TV. "Uncle Ryo, mind coming over here for a second?"He gives you an odd look, but stands, walking over to the TV set. "Sure. What is it, Yu?"You shake your head. "Touch the screen for me, would you?" You ask, pointing to it. He does so, hand stopping on the smooth glass. "Alright, so?" He asks, giving you another curious look as he takes a step back."Feels normal to me."...Now or never. You take a step forwards, and rap on the screen. The ripples spread, and Dojima's confused expression changes to one of shock."You... What...?" He sputters out, as you stick your hand through."There's an entire world in there. Satonaka and Hanamura were somehow pushed into it," You say, pulling your hand out and shaking your head. "It's filled with things called 'Shadows', manifestations-""-of the lower parts of the human psyche, that prey on the minds of humans." Your uncle finishes, seemingly having found his voice. ...How does he-"Go out to the car, Yu. We're going to see someone now." He says, pulling out his cell and shaking his head. "Why am I even surprised that this case involves them..." ...>Get in the car>Write in
>>27699727The decision has been made, so yes, the argument is pointless now.What we do need to focus on is what to make of the current situation after OP posts again and we see Dojima's reaction.
>>27699807On one hand, new party member, dogma is not freaking out....on the other hand, he NOT FREAKING OUT AND WE GETTING INTO DEEP SHIT.I can accept these consequences.
>>27699807OH FUCK.>Get in the car
>>27699807>shadow ops>or P1/2 charactersGet in the fucking carAlso fuck 4chan lately
>>27699903Didnt the white haired guy in P3 become a cop?
>>27699923Akihiko, and that MAY happen after he becomes an adult, and only according to Persona Trinity Soul which is shit
>>27699807>>Get in the carI like where this is going...
>>27699807>>Get in the car
So, I have time to kill. Anyone got non-spoilery questions they want answered before this thread dies?
And yes, that means I'm going to continue in a new thread on Sunday evening, since I have errands today and a game this eve.
>>27700827Since we're Wild Card, will Fusion and Persona switching be a thing we can engage in? And did you make a system for it already?
>>27700842I never said YOU were the Wild Card. But yeah. I've got something planned for Persona switching. Fusion will likely be more "Spur of the moment", I suppose.
>>27700827I WANT CAR TIME
>>27700827Also fix the character sheet, namely Kanji's SL description. And "reversed" fool is Jester/Pierrot
>>27700864So, like, strong emotions may change our persona? That's niceWhat is the maximum skill rank?
>>27700870Later. >>27700877Kanji's SL desc needs a fix, but you're wrong there.Jester is distinct from Reversed Fool. >>27700892Basically.As for skill rank, I'm thinking probably 5-10 at the moment.
>>27701048I'm just sayin' (reversed) is SL's state, so (reversed) Fool would imply IT hating you. It's kinda confusingAlso I read, yeah, Jester is not reversed Fool, just dark counterpartOh wellLet's hope we won't anger S!Yu so that it wouldn't be DOUBLE REVERSED
>>27701088True. However, it'd get a "Rank: X (REVERSED)"I suppose I'll go clarify that a bit.
