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....You barely get a second to think and dismiss your Persona before you feel the sudden yank backwards, pulling you out of that cloud of smog's range"And that's why I keep myself back in a fight." Minako says, sighing as her Persona vanishes. "I've fought enough Shadows with nasty area attacks to know that they're not nice at the end."Looking at the grass under it, you've gotta say you're preeeetttyyy glad you got pulled out of the way. What with it going brown and all...>Write in
Still the first 20 minutes, huh?
>>27749658Head to the smoke, we're distracted by this guy enough
>>27749658"I'll defer to your experience, then. I've been fighting Shadows for less than six hours. This is the first one to explode."
>>27749658Thank her for her assistance and apologize for not expecting that. Then go find Uncle Dojima.
>>27750226Over on the hill?It's gone. Probably was the result of JOKER being summoned.
>>27749658Well, thanks for that. Shall we get out of here?
>>27750664Then we refer to Minako on what to do
Rolled 11, 9, 9, 4 = 33>Give me an Acrobatics check, then.
Rolled 7>>27751146Let fucking go
might want to use fortune
>>27751303Not really, we got a 16 within the roll range. That's fairly good.
>Thank, defer to her"Thanks for that." You say to Minako, shaking your head as you look at the grass. "I do NOT want to know what that stuff would do to a human..""Not a problem" She replies, turning to face the direction she came from. "Now, time to go follow the detective..."You nod, taking off with her the direction your uncle had run, climbing the hill and giving chase...>16!>11!...The two of you manage to make your way through the bushes, in pursuit of both Dojima and the summoner. Eventually, you find yourselves catching up to a panting Dojima, leaning against a lightpole. Seeing you, he shakes his head. "No luck. Whoever it was slipped me around here." He says, standing up. "I'm guessing you got whatever that thing was?"Both you and Minako nod at that. "Yeah." She says, shaking her head. "It tried to take Narukami with it, though. That part of the park isn't going to be very healthy for a while."Dojima looks at you, seemingly torn....>Write in
>>27752252A part of me wants to put a hand on his shoulder and apologize for causing him worry and grief on our behalf.So let's do that, shall we?
>>27752301Sure let's do that
>>27752301Yeah. Sorry, Uncle Dojima. But it's not like we had a choice in this matter.
>>27752252Tell Dojima it's alright--we'll just grab this guy when he inevitably shows his head again. And then say we should all celebrate by going for ice cream.
>>27752301>So, this? >Alright.
How much time has passed since the end of P3?
>>27753142Canonically, P3 is 2009 and P4 is 2011.
>>27753142>>27753191Indeed. A bout a year, since graduation was in the spring. You ask because...?
>>27752704TONIGHT...YOU...GO WITH THIS.
>>27753191>>27753216So about 2 years then? Just curious really, I don't know much about where the P3 characters ended up after the end of FES.
>>27753283About a year. A good fraction of SEES wound up working their asses off to get the Shadow Operatives off the ground, at least in this.
>...Sorry about that.....Dammit, you think, realizing what this must be being like for your uncle. "Uncle Ryo?" You say, putting your hand on his shoulder. He looks up."I'm sorry for putting you through all this worry." You say, shaking your head. "I didn't even know what was going on when I got involved in this." He seems to be in thought for a moment, before he clasps his hand onto your shoulder. "You're a good kid, Yu." Dojima says, sighing. "And, hell, you seem to be handling this better than I would in your situation. Hell, than I am in my situation." He pauses again."Promise me you'll be careful while you're involved in this." He continues, looking you in the eye, resolve clear in his expression. "I don't want to have to call Aoi and tell her that her son got killed when he got caught up in a case.">Make the promise>Don't
>Also, sorry about the delay. Dog again. >She had been so good about it for the last week, too...
>>27753836Promise.Hug it out if the situation is appropriate.
>>27753836>make the promiseAlso I kinda hope Dojima joins the party, just so we can do pic related with maximum authentity
>>27753836>Make the promiseIt would be stupid of us not to be careful. If it's an emergency and we have no other choice, then we'll rush in like we did today. But whenever possible we'll make sure that we've taken every precaution we can for dealing with JOKER and the Shadows. And we'll tell him before we head to the other world, he deserves to know where we are.
>>27753836"If we can be."There's no telling what the situation will call for later on.
>>27753895We've been over this before: P4 is Diamond is Not Crash, not Stardust Crusaders. We're Josuke, Yosuke (hah) is Okuyasu, Kanji is Koichi and Teddie is Mikitaka.
>>27754018>Yosuke (hah) is OkuyasuHow could you possibly fuck up THIS bad? I mean shit
>>27754018But Koichi starts out as a wuss and becomes badass, while Kanji starts out overly-macho and comes to terms with his more sensitive side.
>>27754018What if JOKER's owner in Egypt and has followers?
>>27754058He's the kind of stupid best friend comic relief character that can never get anything right and has a desire for vengeance against the killer. It's not a perfect match in terms of personality, but he fills much the same narrative role.
Rolled 15>>27754127EgyptNyaIt will happen,
I know I'm late asking this, but why aren't wwe Nanako. Doesn't /tg/ wants to be the little girl ?
>>27754308Maybe. But not useless little girl>>27754150Then how is Kanji better as Koichi. Besides, Kanji is a dumb brutish poorfag with a single parentNot to mention Yosuke doesn't have a revenge motive yet
>>27754369The revenge motive fits in the original game.
>Make the promise"Absolutely." You say, nodding. You were planning to do so anyway, so why not make the promise? "I'll keep you informed when I head to the TV world, too."The mutual shoulder holding turns into a hug, and then the two of you release and back up. >You can feel a new bond beginning to form... "Alright." Dojima says, shaking you from your reverie. A glance over at Minako shows that she's staring at you like you had grown a second head. ...Might need to ask about that. "What we know is that the perpetrator is male," He says, starting to pace after taking a look at the ground. "About 165 centimeters or so tall from my estimate, and knew to run when he saw us." Both you and Minako nod. "I think I remember the JOKER yelling something about 'making it painful and bloody' as his summoner demanded." Minako says, looking over at you. "Yeah. Whoever summoned it wanted me to suffer." You nod, getting a look from Dojima. "I don't think it expected my Persona, though."There's silence. "...Well, we'll have to look into things around town, then."Minako says, pounding her fist down onto her palm. "I'll see what I can figure out tomorrow. Narukami, mind looking around your school?"You nod. You were probably going to do that anyway, especially since you need to talk to the others about this. ...You probably should ask those questions on your mind, though, like->Write in>Sheet updated
>>27754427the voice in your head, is that normal?
>>27754427Ask about perpetrator's looks, clothing, hair color and such. I bet it's MitsuoAsk Minako to check out other schools in Inaba, and where is she staying for the time being, and for how longMaybe about why did it take her so long to summon her personaAnd what was that about "second head" thing?
>>27754427Ask why Minako looked so surprised when we did the social link. Come on, we know P3 MC did it plenty of times, I'm sure you've seen it before.
>>27754523Maybe that's exactly why she was surprised? The only other person she's ever seen do it was her cousin/childhood friend/whatever who died and became the Great Seal.
>>27754482>I bet it's MitsuoMitsuo sits around playing video games all day because he has nothing better to do with his life.This is not the sort of person that can outrun a cop.
>>27754858Huh, I guess you're rightBut height matches one of a teenager... and if that height chart is anything to go by, a girl
>>27754887>a girlI just noticed>is maleSo what, someone pretty young then?
>>27754887I will never get over the heart-shaped designs on Maya's breasts. So slutty.
>>27754887>>27754896>Naoto confirmed for antagonist
>>277550392shortAlso that pic is just a reference, like "what would be average japanese X's height?"
Did OP fall asleep again?
Gonna dump a few pics I love to keep this afloat
>>27755973>>27755985>>27755998These are great! who drew them?
>>27756321Amei Zhao, I believe
>>27755449How DID you guess?
Why not ask if she's going to join us in the shadow world from now on? might as well tell the others about all this too, so ask if theres anything we should tell them
>Questions"So." You start, after a moment's thought. "Did you notice anything about the summoner's appearance, uncle Ryo?" Dojima seems to pause, thinking back. "Nothing out of place. Couldn't really see the details, but it looked like a tee shirt and jeans. Hair was short, though." He shakes his head. "Basically, that he was wearing casual clothes." ... Dammit. "Alright, then." You turn to face Minako. "Miss Arisato, I've been wondering... Why did it take you so long to summon your Persona?""To be honest with you?" She says, shrugging. "I don't know. It's happened some before, though..""I think it may have to do with me using a weaker Persona than I should be using." She continues, shaking her head. "I have a habit of fusing off Persona as they get stronger, and starting fresh with some weak ones every time Liz comes to town."...There's that name again. Liz. That flash of knowledge you've had happen would be preeettttyyy nice around now. At any rate, you nod at that. You have a feeling that a similar thing might happen if you get too used to a more powerful Persona..."Alright," You say, taking a step closer as Dojima is checking the ground for tracks. "What was the look for when I was talking to my uncle?"She seems to pause. "You seemed... out of tune with yourself, I guess." Minako says, shaking her head. "I could see some sort of white aura around you as you spoke. It reminded me of... How things happened with him, really.""He got all quiet when he was talking to some people, and when I started paying attention, there was always something a little... Off that I couldn't place about him at those times." She sighs. >Write in
>>27758274Ask if and when she wants to talk to the rest of the gang, and if and when she wants to join us on a trek into the TV world.Other than that, it's surely getting late. We should head home and get some sleep.
>>27758274Way to bring down the mood. (jokingly)I'll be fine, what do we do now?Should I tell my friends about any of this happening, or just continue like normal?
>>27758274"This happened with the other Fool you knew? Maybe Igor would know more about it, then."
>>27758274"Hey, just asking, but why did you press a fake gun against your head?"Ask if she can confirm that people are weak against fighting Shadows, but get stronger immediately after obtaining a Persona. That seemed to be our experience.Ask about the White aura? I dont really get what she means.And try summoning our other Persona. Ask about Fusion, too. And where we're all supposed to move on from here, other than checking the school grounds.
>>27758274Ask about what we do with the Shadow items? Hell, ask if us telling the others our experience may have been linked with Yosuke & Chie getting dragged in. That could spell bad news about TVs.
>>27758274>"He got all quiet when he was talking to some people, and when I started paying attention, there was always something a little... Off that I couldn't place about him at those times." She sighs.P3!Protag was kind of a creep in some of his Social Links."Well, you did sense something. I'm not sure what, but it's just jumped higher on my list of things to ask Igor about. I feel fine, though."Then topic change! "How do you acquire new Personas, anyway?"
>>27758274What happened to him?Mention that we intend on getting a job at the gas station...buuut ask if we"ll get some money from [the Security Department] or [Dojima]. Because while we all managed to arm ourselves, we can probably get better equipment.Like low-tech gear that can work in the TV World, if normal electronics from IRL don't work there.
>>27758716oh thats good.time to monetize this shitalso, ask the other things before we bring this up
>>27758760Even free gear would be good.Personally though, I want to still interact with the smith, so I'd like it if OP didn't invalidate that choice.
>>27758274I...see.>>27758716Nah, We need that gas job. For that Social Link man. Social links>money.
>>27758890We can still get some small money or free gear.
>>27758274Who the hell is "he"? Seriously, are we supposed to just "get it"? That's just plain impoliteI know she's talking about MC, I just think this question is in-character for us
>>27759111>>27758274Act a bit offended?"No offense to the person you knew, but I like to consider myself decently socialized and not give off the impression I have a few screws loose just by looking at me."Not exactly that since I suck at dialogue, but something like that. It sounded a bit like an insult, really.And a bit scary we're being compared to/set up to be the same as the guy who's now /dead/.
>>27759231I can see why we can act insulted, actually. All that comparison to some "he" is one of those bad anime cliches
>>27758760>>27758800We could ask for combat/persona training, considering the most combat experienced person is a kid with a knack of getting into fights with gangsters. Ask about the Evoker for sure.
>More things"...That happened to the other Fool you knew, then?" You ask, looking at your hands. That sort of freaky thing isn't really good to have happen..."Yep." Minako replies, shrugging. "Every time I saw him talking to someone, he seemed to zone out for a moment. When I asked, he just said it was related to Persona and clammed up."That's... Odd, you think. "Hm..." You start, looking around. "Anything specific you can tell about that aura you noticed?"She shakes her head. "Just its appearance." She says. "I only saw it for a second."...There's a brief silence as the two of you think about that."Alright. Why did you use that fake gun to shoot yourself in the head?" You ask. "That isn't exactly normal."She chuckles at that."It's how we of SEES summon our Persona." She says, giving you an odd look. "I was actually wondering how you did it with just the card." "No clue." "Probably has to do with how you obtained it, then." She shrugs. "He did something similar when switching, but still used an Evoker to summon.""...Who is 'he'? You've mentioned him a lot, and it's gotten me curious. Especially with all these comparisons to him." You ask after a moment. ...Minako is silent for a minute."Makoto was his name." She says in a somber tone. "He was the Fool I mentioned, and.... I... Really don't want to talk about it right now...""I'm sorry," She continues, shaking her head. "I just... Can't. Not without getting myself ready." ...Maybe you should drop it for now. 'Was' is not a good way to describe someone's name, and that tone bodes ill for god memories. >Drop it for now>Pry
>>27759528"I get it. But I don't think I'm too comfortable being compared to someone you refer to in the past tense. It's kind of unsettling, you know?"
>>27759528>Drop it for nowAnd here I was half wondering if she was even capable of remembering his name. Makoto did some weird things to causality towards the end before he became the great seal. I wouldn't be surprised if his name being lost was a consequence of it. It has a certain fitting mythic logic to it.
>>27759615This but mention ominous
>>27759528Drop it.I think we should wrap things up it's probably getting late. Maybe ask if she's going to help us in the shadow world or what we should do now
>>27759528Drop it like it's bassOn an unrelated note, why do I have this nagging feeling like we're gonna have to die in the end because we're monster and don't belong in this world or somesuch
>>27759693death will only be the begining
>>27759710Loosing is winning
>>27759693Because we're on True Reincarnation mode? Because we know things we couldn't possibly know? Because the Shadow of Yu Narukami doesn't recognize us as being Yu Narukami? Because we got our Persona without the influence from Izanagi that canon Yu got, raising questions about just what our power is? There are a lot of reasons to question our nature.
>>27759710Seriously though, I heard that in SMTverse if you're not hardfucked like Aleph or MC, death is basically nothing, are there any examples?
>>27759790Everyone dies in Digital Devil Saga. Every single party member. But they all come back for the final dungeon. That might not be a fair example, though. The final dungeon is Heaven. But after God is defeated (because of course the final boss of an Atlus game is God, what did you expect?) everyone comes back to life for real, so I'm counting that as a win.
>>27759784>Because the Shadow of Yu Narukami doesn't recognize us as being Yu Narukami?Most of all, thisI'm just waiting for real Yu to show up and force us to kill ourselves because there can only be one
>>27759829>I've said it several times. >There is only ONE Yu Narukami, and you are it.
>>27759848Okay, then did we introduce ourselves to Dojima, or did he know our name already?
>>27759848That doesn't mean that we're the original Yu Narukami, though. Just that we replaced him, somehow. And even if we are the original Yu, we could still be something unnatural. Our spiritual nature being warped and twisted would explain why Shadow Yu can't recognize us as being us, because we've become something else since he was created.
>>27759898>...Did your uncle know your name already? >When he's been calling you "Yu" since you arrived?>What do you think?
>>27759925Remember, Shadow Yu is an artificial Shadow. Maybe whatever made him just didn't know the real Yu as well as he thought he did?Or maybe it has to do with the whole rebellion thing, and he's lying about not recognizing us as Yu, as a convenient excuse to not fight us.
>>27759932I didn't think, I couldn't rememberBut after short archive diving, yeah, he knew aheadWell then, I'll just stop speculating and wait for developments
>>27759898That's a bit of a silly question. He's Yu's uncle. He'd know his nephew's name.
Drop it for now. I think that's enough spaghetti pulling for now.
So did anyone else think that by choosing the deck and have a nigh-encyclopedic flash memory to all of this bullshit, we might just be like Elizabeth and Margaret are? Someone with a deck that functions as a recorder? Or is this a silly theory that holds no merit? Because the way we operate and didn't choose a specific Arcana at the start, combined with the fact that Liz could still obtain a Persona the old-fashioned way (at the end of P4 Aerna) kind of has me getting suspicious.
>>27760169Aren't "flashbacks of information" just a narrative thing, for reader to understand things clearer? I know that we asked Minako about them, but it may have been done for laughs or somesuch
>>27760382What's that mutated cat mean?
>Drop it for now"Alright." You say, shaking your head. "If it's you need time to get ready before talking about it, that's fine. It's just unsettling to be compared to someone referred to in the past tense. And ominous."She nods. "Thanks. I understand your curiosity, but... I really can't talk about this right now." Minako seems to be getting back to her 'normal' self. "Anything else you want to ask about, though?""You mentioned fusion with regards to Persona." You start, shifting your posture slightly. "What is that?"She seems surprised. "Igor didn't tell you?" She asks, giving you an odd look. "It's something he and a few others can do. They take multiple Persona and turn them into a single new one."...THANKS FOR SHARING THAT, IGOR."Multiple? So, like, several people's, or someone with more than one?" You shake your head. No sense in getting worked up about that. "Someone with more than one's." She replies, before putting her finger on her chin in thought. "Though I suppose using more than one person's Persona COULD be done...."...Looks like that's all of the pressing information."Alright." You say, shaking your head. "Anything else I should do? I was planning on trying to get a job somewhere around town, but... Well, any chance your boss would pass along some funding for our investigations?"...Minako seems surprised that you'd think of that. "She probably will," She says, shaking her head. "But she leads from the front, and is with a few of us out tracking down someone who stole our property. It will be a while before she'll be able to get anything sent to us."Dojima finally stands, turning to face the two of you. "Alright." He says, sighing. "I'll be coming back out here with Adachi and some equipment tomorrow. Hopefully, we'll be able to figure out some more about the culprit with light."(1/2)
>>27760521(2/2)"Nothing we can really find out here right now, though." He finishes, shaking his head. "We should probably head home, now, given how late it's gotten." Minako nods. "Yeah, I need to back, too." She says, looking at the sky. "I have work in the morning, too."...Not much you can do but agree....You and Dojima parted ways with Minako, and returned home....It's a few minutes before midnight when you get back. >Go to bed>Drop in on the Shadow to talk
>>27760489See the filename for details.
>>27760521>and is with a few of us out tracking down someone who stole our property.Labrys plotline confirmed?>>27760532Head to sleep.It's been a long day, we need to rest.
>>27760532go to sleep we can talk to ShadYu tomorrow
>>27760532>>Drop in on the Shadow to talkGrind that social links guys.
>>27760552I can't>>27760521>Though I suppose using more than one person's Persona COULD be done....Fusion spells ahoy>>27760532We just saw our buddy, let's just rest for now
>>27760607It said "Wouldn't you like to know"
>>27760561>there will never be a Labrys/Aigis action game by Platinum
>>27760618Ah, I see, I suspected that, thanks
>RestYou decided to go to sleep....>Thursday, April 14th, 2011, 6:30 AMAfter a peaceful rest, you wake up early....Heading downstairs, you see Dojima sitting at the table, drinking a cup of coffee.He nods at you."Make sure to get Nanako to school and back safely again today." He says, nodding at you. "Take the longer route today, would you?">Write in
>>27760903"Sure Uncle. What do you want for breakfest?"Start making breakfest for All 4 of us.Dojima, Nanako, Yu and Shadow Yu.

>>27762518IT TIME TO AHEGO SOME BITCHES AND HOES WITH OUR COOKING.
>>27762518So...we're not going to have the Mystery Food X scene in this continuity, right? Because at this rate Yu should have developed a strong enough reputation for cooking with his friends by the time of the camping trip that he'll be the one in charge of the food.
>Make food"Absolutely. Keep her from seeing the site of the incident, right?" You ask, looking at your uncle. "Yeah. If there's any chance there's something left over from that thing..." He trails off. "If I could, I would have had the whole area cordoned off, but..."You nod in understanding. He doesn't have nearly enough clout to shut down a frequently used walking trail over an alleged incident. "Anyway," You say, heading over to the kitchen. "I'm going to make some lunch and then breakfast. Want to stay for breakfast?" He shakes his head. "No I don't really have time for that..." He replies, sighing. "I'll probably be going before you're done making breakfast." "Lunch, then?" You ask, glancing in the refrigerator... Yes... You can make a superb lunch with that...."I guess..." Dojima says, looking at you. >Makin' Lunch! 20x2!...Six lunches are prepared, sitting on the counter in their boxes, as Dojima walks out the door with the seventh. >Makin' Breakfast! 14!Nanako soon comes down the stairs, seeing the breakfast you're finishing being set on the table. ...The two of you eat in relative silence, before heading out. ....You take the long way to Nanako's school, then hurry on to yours.Arriving at the gate, you realize you managed to get there a bit earlier than you otherwise would have...>Head up to your classroom and see if the others are there.>Find and talk to Kanji>Go to the roof>Write in
>>27762718>Head up to your classroom and see if the others are there.
>>27762718WHAT DID WE MAKE FOR LUNCH?????
>>27762718Head to the classroom
>>27762744>Food. I'm not really good at describing meals, especially lunches. I'm going to gloss over it as much as I can.
>>27762775Will we get exp for having double 20's
>>27762718>>Find and talk to KanjiMan, fucking Kanji needs food badly.
>>27762718>Go to the roofIt's an option for a reason
>>27762718>Find and talk to KanjiInvite him to lunch with the rest of the group. We've got five bentos and four of the group in the same class. We'll all meet on the roof and have a nice meal while we discuss what we've learned.
>>27762718Find kanji and invite him to lunch with the rest of the gang. Or if he declines just give him a container and say enjoy
>Looks like Kanji's getting an invite to lunch, then
>Find Kanji and invite him to meet up...Best get everyone to be meeting on the roof for lunch, you think. If you recall right, Kanji's jacket... Was the year 1 one. So, he's on the first floor. Glancing in the first classroom, you shake your head as the underclassmen stare at you. Next one, you find him, sitting in the back, looking uncomfortable and somewhat awkward. Catching his eye, you tap your wrist, then point upwards, while holding up one of the boxes of lunch you brought with you. He nods, obviously getting the message, and gives you a thumbs up....Heading up to your own classroom, you take your seat and brace yourself for a boring lecture...>Pay attention?
>>27762775I'm going to assume we made some bentos of such aggressive cuteness that Kanji at first thinks we're mocking him only to see that everyone else got similar designs, leaving him with no idea how to respond.
>>27763802Yeah, go with that.
>>27763788Yeah, we pay attention. Just because we're now a professional monster-hunter doesn't mean we don't need a proper education.
>>27763788Pay AttentionWe need that Knowledge up mate.
>Give me 2d25, then. I'll take the best of first three sets rolled
Rolled 18, 25 = 43>>27764107d25? Odd.
>>27764159well.That...that's damned good.Guys, I think we're good.
>>27764159We good OP.Time for update.
Rolled 22, 25 = 47>>27764107
>>27764218You were saying?
>>27764218OH SHIT, TG DICE IS WITH US. TIME TO STOP ROLLING.
Rolled 13, 12 = 25>>27764159>>27764218>Two 25sWhat the hell.>>27764107
>>27764244>13+12=25TG dice is being kind to us. Poor Peter Quest and Bleach quest, they going to be buttfuck in the next thread. Jojo, on the other hand, is all about them 100
>Pay attention....Despite the boring subject matter, you manage to keep yourself awake and pay attention to the morning lecture... ...As the lunch bell rings, you catch the attention of Yosuke, Chie, and Yukiko, holding up the lunches you made. "Roof?" You ask, getting nods from all three.... The four of you make your way to the roof, finding Kanji already seated there. "Yo." He says, giving a curt wave. "Narukami made lunch for all of us, huh?"You nod, and distribute the packs to each of your friends.....Kanji seems annoyed as he opens his, but then drifts to confused as he looks at the others...As you finish up, you notice there are a few minutes before the bell...>Talk about last night>Ask them to meet up at Junes later>Head on back to the classroom
>>27764475>>Talk about last night"So guys, I told my uncle about everything. Turns out, not only did he already have a surprisingly good idea what was going on, but he introduced me to another, more experienced Persona user. And then we got attacked by the Joker."So how was your guys' evenings?"
>>27764475Let them in on what we know.
>>27764475>Talk about last night>Ask them to meet up at Junes later>Head on back to the classroom
>>27764475>Ask them to meet up at Junes laterNo comment about the food?
>>27764475Also, what did they think of our 20X2 EXTREME LUNCH?
>>27764475>Talk about last nightSo I had a busy night, how about you?
>>27764475Ask what they thought of our lunch then casually explain that we might have spilled the beans to our uncle. Wait for reactions and then explain
Hit on Kanji and say we made his special
>>27764475>Talk about last nightJust a sketch, though, because we don't have time to go into details. So...>Ask them to meet up at Junes later
>So, uh...."What did you think of lunch?" You ask. "I was kind of low on ingredients, but... Well, I thought it turned out alright."Their expressions say it all. ...Well, aside from Yukiko's, which is her usual one."...Bud?" Yosuke says, looking at you oddly. "You are officially in charge of food for the Investigation Team. No exceptions."Nods come from the rest, as you grin and hop to your feet, taking a quick bow. "Glad to hear that I'm keeping a gold standard." You say, taking your seat again. "So, uh.... How would you folks feel if I maybe let slip to my uncle that there's supernatural stuff going on in town?" You start, adopting a nervous expression....Again, their expressions say it all."Because I sorta did last night."...Wow, you did not think their expressions could get any more horrified. "But!" You continue, grinning once more. "It turns out he knows a person who's had a Persona for longer than any of us, and whose job is to investigate this sort of thing. And that he's willing to let me stay involved, since I'm one of the few in town who can do something."You can practically hear the record-scratch as most jaws drop. "That's good." Yukiko says, seemingly unfazed. "I don't suppose they'd be willing to help us?""The hell, Narukami? Next thing, you'll say you're the one who messed up the park." Kanjis says after a moment, giving you a glare. "...I'm not making any promises, but we should probably all meet up at Junes later to discuss this." You get a suspicious look from the others, but they nod. "I'm going to give the other Persona user a call, too. She needs to meet all of you, after all."...As you finish your sentence, the bell rings....Back to class........After school, you find yourself out at the gate... It'll be a while before everyone else is at Junes... >Head to the shopping district>Head straight to Junes>Head home>Write in
>>27766244>Write inTake Nanako home, first. And, speaking of her, while we're at home we should grab our sewing stuff. We can work on it while we wait for the others to show up. Gives us something to do with our hands, you know.
>>27766244Take Nanako home like we promised.Not like we have any money to spend at the shopping district.
>>27766244Take Nanako-chan home then stop by and talk to ShadYu
Take Nanako to home and talk to shadow yu.
>>27766244Yeah, take Nanako home first. After that, eh...Head to the shopping district I say- look into Job possibilities while we have a moment- adventuring in the TV is expensive work
>>27766321>>27766333Voting for this two
>>27766636What we need to do is start taking fetch quests from people around town. That's the best way to make money. Quick, does anyone know where we can get some meat-flavored chewing gum?
>>27766774There are like 3 quests out of 69 that have cash rewardsWe should just get a fucking job
>>27767599No, it's not the cash rewards we want, it's the reputation it builds us as a capable young man. That'll help us get a well-paying job. For example, feeding rare insects to Old Lady Shiroku's fish can land us a job as a bar back. And the stuff we get as quest rewards is useful. We won't need money from a job if we're getting all our recovery items from trading.
>Drop Nanako off, check on the ShadowYou really should get your cousin home first, you realize, heading to pick her up from school. ... The trip home is faster than you expected, and Nanko goes to her room to do some homework, after you remind her to not open the door for anyone. Heading to your room, you squeeze through the TV, finding yourself in the white room, only the pillar of TVs in it....That's right. You left that Shadow with Teddie inside the Junes TV.....You clamber out of the TV world, and check the time. ...You have a bit longer to kill before it's time to meet up.>To Junes>Market District>Write in
>>27767947>Market DistrictWe need to go and see what places are hiring and get applications.
>>27767841I'm very much in favor of this, in that case. We need connections, and if we express worry over people disappearing and tell the people we're making nice with that we might know somebody who knows something, they'd be more likely to give us a call if they see anything. I hope.Information networks, we need them.>>27767947I'm tempted to say market, but scoping out junes ahead of time is also a valid, if only to ensure there's nobody suspicious or anything odd going on before, you know, we have the super sensitive team huddle there.
>So, Market?>Also, this will probably be my last update for the eve. Work at 6, and all.
>>27767947>To JunesWe can hit up the Market District later. Preferably accompanied by a native guide.
>Market district...You should take some time to figure out where is hiring while you have a moment, you realize. Stretching and grabbing your sewing kit first, you send Minako an email asking her to meet you and your group at the Junes food court, then head over to the shopping district. ......After asking around, you find that the notice board has a note saying that none will be posted until the 23rd...When you drop in at the hobby shop, the manager is there, and he says that he isn't hiring. All the other stores seem to be family run, so they're out of the running. Daidara, though happy to see you, isn't exactly looking to take an apprentice.The presence outside of his shop turns out to be a door not unlike the one you found in the TV World, though when you try to open it open, the door remains sealed, and you can hear a hum of power coming from inside of it...The gas station turns up a paper application, which you tuck away in your shirt pocket. Looking at your watch, it's time to head to Junes... ...As you arrive, you notice that almost everyone is here... Kanji appears to be absent at the moment, and Yosuke is off at a counter getting food, but Minako is sitting at a table with Chie and Yukiko, seemingly engaged in conversation...
>And that's it for the night. Feel free to eat this up with theorizing/banter.I need ideas.
>>27769619So, Gentlemen.What is Minako's starter/ultimate persona?
>>27769619my lack of persona knowledge only heightens my fear.
>>27769768Eurydice and Persephone.(I've never played P3P; I have no idea what it is canonically.)
>>27769886Canonically it's the same as the male MC, though her Orpheus looks more feminine.
>>27769768Eurydice as starter>>27769469I guess it's gasoline and gasoline accessories for us
>>27759958I think thats it. He showed some reluctance to recognize us as him. Plus, thats our False Shadow.>>27769619Get a drink. Go to Yukiko & Minako, engage in conversation while sewing. Ask if there's been any update from her, maybe? And bring up we possibly have a Reverse Fool Persona, but haven't got to use it yet. Maybe ask if she has a (safe) way for us to improve our combat/persona fightan? Since everyone but her have only a bit of experience.Followed by (when the scene needs to move on):Get some food for Teddie and Shadow!Yu. And push for him to get a real name. We can bounce a few off of him if he cant think up any.
I'm amusing myself imagining the results if, after we had talked with ShadowYu for the first time, we had somehow sent out a public announcement "if confronted by a clone of yourself acting out your repressed feelings, accept that they are a part of yourself, do not try to argue that they are not you." and then got the hell out of dodge before we could be identified
Also, as an aside, you'll LOVE one day in the next (in-story) week.It'll just make you SO happy.
>>27770130We actually need a quick and efficient way to do this next time we come across another Victim-Shadow scene. >>27769469Ask Minako some of the things we didnt get to. Like what to do with the masks and stuff.
>>27770167...And by happy, I mean fucking terrified.
I just realized we're in Junes not to investigateAlthough we probably should push Kanji in, he's the only one without persona
>>27770167....What's that supposed to mean? Actually *us* happy or *you* happy?Unrelated, but how do we increase our Fortune rank anyway? RNG has so far proven itself to be our biggest enemy.
>>27770182Now I AM happy Although considering quests speed it's still miles away
>>27770202"Keep your friends close, and your enemy closer.">>27770216Not if we establish a routine day, and timeskip a bit
>>27770289So we're gonna duke it out with Shadow!Yu anyway? No food for him then
>>27770310Hah, no. It's about Fortune perk levels, not in-character things. Fortune perks are acts of pity upon RNG abused souls.
>>27770326Oh ok. Is Devil (General fuckface) SL an OOC thing only?
Rolled 1>>27770326We need to be able to destroy the chains of RNG that drag down the souls of mankind.
>>27770362Jesus Christ man.
>>27770326How do we increase it? RNG is annoying compared to say, encountering the Reaper the first time we decide to explore TVLand. >>27770362Good thing OP didnt ask us to roll for anything.>>>/lgbt/
>>27770361No.>>27770535I'm contemplating adding the 3rd rank for somewhere in the range of a thousand xp, but your first two were due to RNG fuckery.
>>27770535Yeeah. It's even worse when you consider the fact that you still have that very high chance of critfail even if you have say, Cooking Rank 99. >>27770710Something that requires two 1s out of 5-6 rolls would fix RNG fuckery.
>>27770710RNG fuckery is still there. In combat, we're probably going to get 3-5 1s per thread. F2 only shaves off one of those.
>>27770167....Guys?There was a full moon on the 18th of April, 2011.I don't like that
>>27773502...AH SHITP2(both games(Other side)) P3 and P4 bullshit all happening at once. Will everyone other than the town people will be killed like P2?
Did OP say what'd happen if we chose the mystery box? I swore he did but cant find it
>>27775727I did not.But, I will now.You'd have been playing as Seta Souji, 2nd-year student council member, and scared out of your wits by the SC president.
>>27775793Seta Souji? AKA Manga Narukami? Would that have meaningfully effected the supernatural plot?Or rather.Other than a different character, what else did our choice effect? Like, Deck over Fool.Would you say TRM is SMT difficulty tier?
>>27775867In order: No comment, possibilities for allies, and no comment.I will say that TRM added a few MORE enemies than Hard would have.
>>27776048Fuck yeah cant wait for the cosgrove tier arc mashups
>>27776048Wonder how Igor and Izanami feel about everything going so hard off the rails.
>>27776117Igor's ecstatic. Izanami's fucking pissed. Especially since.... you'll know soon enough.
>>27776188Cant write your notes on human behavior when the gates of hell are opening up
>>27776204Oddly, not that.She's had a horrible week, basically. Still has one unused pawn, though.Or, rather, bishop.
>>27776309huhthat raises even further questionsones that you wont answerwhere does she work again?
>>27776188Ecstatic? Why? It makes things more entertaining?Also, is it possible to get a moderately good end? As in, Yu gets to move on with his life and eventually become a NEET with his shadow twin or whatever.
>>27776352I think something about this whole clusterfuck is going to bring Philemon back to the Velvet Room. Or at least Igor thinks so.I believe he mentioned something to that effect a while ago.
>>27776378"Clusterfuck" does not even begin to describe it.
>>27776459Is it time?
oh god i just remembered she works at the gas stationthe same gas station were going to work atdem social links
>>27776474Is that even accurate? Rejoice implies getting what we want, even if its unpleasant. Without there being a subversion. Like being a Hero means Villains need to exist.
>>27776352Our resolve will cut open the way to the good end for usResolve and 20s
>>27776510In the gameShe worked at the station in the gameAnd was disguised as male, while we know that station has a female worker
>>27776514>>27776514>Rejoice implies getting what we want, even if its unpleasant.I'm rejoicing. Sitting here, right now, at my computer. I am rejoicing, because shit's about to get absolutely crazy.
>>27776541It's not though. OP said next week, and it's only thursdayIn other words it's not storm, it's not even raining, but we can see clouds in the distance and they're black as fuck
>>27776378Actually he said "a new well of power". Strongly implying that it's not Philemon-juice he's going to be running on.Ominous.
