>>28155786>Previously...Dojima is home early, you think as you turn around and see him walk in, jacket over his shoulder. "Oh, you made dinner early." He says, catching sight of the table. "Ah, and you invited Miss Arisato over, too?"...You have a feeling from his look, he's half-surprised, half not."Oh, I'm sorry if I'm intruding," Minako says sheepishly. "I came over to talk with your nephew and his friends earlier, and he asked if I'd be willing to stick around when he started making dinner.""Oh, it's not a problem." Dojima shakes his head with a sigh. "I bet Nanako wanted you to stick around, too. I know how both of them can be when they want someone to do something.""Anyway, since you three look like you're done eating, I'll just warm some of this up in a couple of minutes." He shrugs....Minako seems somewhat relieved."I suppose you were talking about..." Dojima starts again, looking at the two of you meaningfully... Nanako seems confused."Yeah, that friend of mine, who's been out of school for a couple of weeks. Miss Arisato did some digging, and found out that he's been sick since then." You say, getting a nod from Minako. "Shame about that. He was such a joker, too."...Dojima seems to get your meaning."Ah, alright." He says. "Well, it doesn't look like you wrecked the place by having your friends over... Just let me know before you do that again."...After a few awkward minutes, you've got the leftovers of the dinner not claimed by Dojima packed up, and Minako seems to be about to head out for real now...Nanako is watching TV happily, and Dojima is at the kitchen table, eating while reading a newspaper...>Offer to escort Minako home (probably swinging by the Velvet Room for a quick chat...)>Talk to Nanako>Talk to Dojima>Write in
>>28155799>>Offer to escort Minako home (probably swinging by the Velvet Room for a quick chat...)Ask if Minako would like to enter the velvet room as well.Are we suppose to roll for those checks or is that just a reminder?
Is the char sheet updated, by the way?Perhaps next time you might want to add a 'Last Updated' time stamp to it.
>>28155799>>Offer to escort Minako home (probably swinging by the Velvet Room for a quick chat...)
>>28155815>You need to roll that 5d20, yes.Five of those sets in total.
Rolled 16, 1, 16, 7, 7 = 47>>28155851Right, rollingu.
Rolled 11, 4, 16, 3, 6 = 40>>28155851
Rolled 13, 17, 7, 7, 6 = 50>>28155799>>Offer to escort Minako home (probably swinging by the Velvet Room for a quick chat...)>>28155851rollin'
Rolled 4, 13, 16, 20, 14 = 67>>28155815sounds decent
Rolled 8, 7, 4, 12, 7 = 38>>28155799>Offer to escort Minako home (probably swinging by the Velvet Room for a quick chat...)raising them flags. Hamuko route is a go.
Rolled 7, 12, 6, 11, 13 = 49>>28155851Dice God bless us Dood!
>>28156193Need to sacrifice more prinnies.
>Offer to escort Minako home....Well, you wanted to see Igor already. May as well head out...Walking towards the vestibule, you cough."Er..." You say, catching Minako's attention by the door. "Want me to keep you company on your walk?"She gives you a blank look, until you tap your nose and move your finger outwards. "Oh, yes. Thank you for the offer." She says, smiling as she seems to get the meaning. You nod, taking a few steps back and catching Dojima's attention."Uncle Ryo, I'm gonna walk Miss Arisato home." You say. "Is that alright with you?"...He gives you a blank look, before you hold up your right hand, palm upwards....He seems to get the meaning after a moment, and sighs. "Yeah, sure." He says after a moment. "Just let me know where you are."You give him a thumbs up, before turning around...>Time to go>...Hang on, I should take...
>>28156229>>...Hang on, I should take...An Umbrella... just in case?
>>28156229>>Time to goLets get the show on the road.Does Yuu count as having his sword with him or is do we need to specify that he takes it?
>>28156229>>28156244...The masks. He's giving us a chance, I think.
>>28156229>Time to goour weapons are not very conceivable and we would seems suspect if any one se us armed on street at night>>28156209>sacrifice more prinnies.That’s cruel dood!we have already worked hard on a ritual, pleas don't sacrifice us Dood!
>>28156298I thought Yuu would be bringing those with him around with him regardless.
>>28156344Yeah, but would he have them with him even at home?
>>28156376I mean, like, on him and not in his room.
>>28156376Well he brought them with him to school and about even after finding them. The showing of the masks to others was a on the spot thing so its not like he purposely choose to bring them with him on those particular days.
I wonder if we can cancel nat 20s to store them for later use
>>28156449Probably that would be a higher rank of the Devil perk. Something to look forward to, I suppose. It would be useful seeing how we seem to always get 20s when cooking. If we could store those for later we'd be unstoppable.
If only this quest wasn't right around mn my side of the globe.I'm out folks, have fun and protect the Minako.
>Time to go. ...It really isn't a good idea to take weapons around with you. Too obvious. Walking to the door, you take a second to get ready to leave, and nod to Minako. ...The two of you step out and start on your walk. "So, you wanted an excuse to go to the Velvet Room?" Minako asks after a few minutes of quiet walking."Yeah, I figured it'd be easy enough to head there either on the way to your place, or on the way back." You nod. "May as well see if we can get some information tonight.""Well, the shopping district's on the way to my apartment, anyway."She sighs. "May as well stop by."....After a short while, the two of you arrive at the shopping district. ...Seems quiet.The only people you notice other than yourselves are a couple of salarymen, evidently somewhat drunk, and a teenage girl a fair bit further down the road, talking on a cellphone....The door to the Velvet Room is sitting there, glowing slightly. >Write in
>>28157277Ladies firstask her if she prefer to go one at a time and we'll wait her get out or if we should go together
>>28157397VR is wider now, we should be able to go together
>>28157580I know but maybe she wants to go alone?
>>28157277Go in together
>Roll me 1d20, please.
Also,sorry about being slower than usual today. Stuff has come up that's being... Distracting.
Rolled 13>>28158275Rolling dood!>>28158290It's ok dood
>Into the Velvet Room...May as well, you think. "Want to go first?" You ask, gesturing to the door as you and Minako approach it. She nods, reaching out and grabbing the handle, turning it and-...Pulling it, without it opening. There's a brief silence."So, I guess I really do need to get a key, huh?" Minako sighs and steps back. "Go on. I'll wait out here for you."...Memories flicker into your head again... Shouldn't contractors be able to..."No." You shake your head. "I think I can probably let you in with me, actually."This gets a surprised look from her. "Those memories popped up again." You say, shaking your head. "I think I can let you in with me, though.""Well, let's go then." She seems doubtful, but...You place a hand on Minako's shoulder, then pull open the door. At the far end, you see Igor with a somewhat surprised expression, but he nods and gestures for you to enter....The two of you step in, door closing behind you as you do so."Ahh, Mr. Narukami." Igor says, grinning. "I see you've brought a guest this time." ....Not much to say to that but nod. "Now, I suppose the two of you have ventured here because you wished to have some questions answered, yes?" He continues, folding his hands. "Please, do ask away."Minako seems to be considering something, but remains silent....>Write in
>>28158653>...Memories flicker into your head again... Shouldn't contractors be able to...Memories, now? Also, I forgot, What were we gonna ask Igor about?Ah yes.>try asking Igor if demons or other spirits exist. We can go on from there. At least with that, we can get certainty>Ask for advice, like about JOKER.Oh, we should ask him about the Cups card. Minako about the Death card, if the Arcana popped up. Then maybe we can do that fusion thing with Minako under his supervision?We could also ask about the supernatural in general. Like what happened in the past.And...why things are based off Jungian psychology.Maybe ask about Social Links?
>>28158767Oh, and why we get memories and information in our head.
>>28158653How dangerous would facing JOKER's summoner directly be?Does he know what caused the Dark Hour reappear for half a minute a week ago?Is there anything that can be done with the masks to destroy them for good, or are we stuck guarding them forever?Why do we keep getting memories of things other Wild Cards encountered?
>>28158839>How dangerous would facing JOKER's summoner directly be?I don't follow. He'd be as human as us. >Is there anything that can be done with the masks to destroy them for good, or are we stuck guarding them forever?OOC & IC it came up time and time again.>Daidara = Turn any Shadow shit into special armor or weapons>Teddie = Blank cards or items>Why do we keep getting memories of things other Wild Cards encountered?We don't really know this. I never got this impression.
>So, questions are...>Demons?>JOKER-related advice>Dark Hour>Masks>Memories/Information>That about it?
>>28158653>contractors Contract-ees you mean? Or "the contracted/people contracted"?
>>28158653>>28159006Throw in asking about what happened in the blacksmith-guy-whose-name-escapes-me's generation.
>>28159006Demons/Spirits. The card he gave us. Cups or Wands I think it was.How long it"ll take for the blank cards to have the Arcana appear. Ask minako, even. I'd like to see:> "And the trading?">> "...Provided the wild card in question is compatible with the Persona's arcana, there should be no issues." He seems reluctant to speak about it. "It would be best if I observed the proceedure, though, to ensure it runs smoothly.">"It truly depends upon the situation. A wild card could -potentially- fuse a Persona to another's with no effect to themself, but that is all speculation on my part."Last but not least:>What's the difference between my Deck and a Wild Card?
>>28159006The story behind Jungian psychology, or why all this freaky stuff has explicit parallels/allusions to it.Social Links. What exactly do they do and all.
>>28158902>I don't follow. He'd be as human as us. We don't know how easy it is to summon JOKER. If it's Persona-like speed, then it would be dangerous. If we can just get the drop on him on his own we'll be fine.>OOC & IC it came up time and time again.>Daidara = Turn any Shadow shit into special armor or weapons>Teddie = Blank cards or itemsWe don't actually know that. The masks aren't exactly normal Shadow drops. It might work, it might not.>We don't really know this. I never got this impression.We know about the stuff Makoto fought. We had some basic knowledge of JOKER even before we investigated him more. Yu's got something passing him notes. Might not be directly related to the previous Wild Cards, but we know about the things they had to face.
>>28159015Yeah, that's what I meant. Blame me being somewhat dumb. Though, contractor is -technically- correct, since the contract in question (agreement to stop the JOKER thing) has you in charge of doing something, and you're deciding your own hours,>>28159066Wands it was.
>>28159109We should also ask about why there's the Tarot card connection. Tarot being meaningful is a relatively recent concept in occultism. Which way did the influence flow? Did awareness of the supernatural lead to Tarot getting higher priority, or did the focus on Tarot imprint on the paranormal and change it? Like, were 15h century Shadows based on something else?
Rolled 16>>28159006>Demons?>Dark Hour>MasksThose mainly
Sorry about this, but... I've headed out to get some food. I'll finish up and post as soon as I get back.
>>28160045Take your time!
...We brought the masks, right?Or did GoldenOP fuck us?
>>28160857>You brought the masks.
Back. Shoulda said this earlier, but finishing up the next post.
>>28159122>We don't actually know that. The masks aren't exactly normal Shadow drops. It might work, it might not.Nope. We do. OP has told us OOC and IC that's how it works with the drops. Seriously. Teddie had already shown he can make cards and possibly other "Stuff.". Daidara said he can make crazy shit from the material.
>>28164135I said that about the normal masks. Not the ones you've been carrying around.
>>28164163oh.>>28158767>Maybe ask about Social Links?I'd like to see this for Minako's reaction, if she gets them too. If I were in Yu's position, I'd be vaguely uncomfortable with the idea of almost exploiting people by getting closer to them for more juice.
>>28159066>>What's the difference between my Deck and a Wild Card?Just expanding on this, but Igor never really went into much detail on Decks and they didn't sound different from an ordinary Wild Card (multiple Personae they can use or fuse). So we should press about this again.
>>28164359...I sort of want to ask if we can turn others into Wild Cards as well.I mean, this is True Reincarnation mode.
>>28164453And see if we can do the Fuse or Trade with another Wild Card
>>28164481Sure, why not, that too.
>>28164481Gattai with another wild card
>>28158653>"Those memories popped up again." You say, shaking your head. "I think I can let you in with me, though."Does this mean we can let in other people, even if they're not WCs? Since we got MEMORIES, I assume this is something we may already know IC and isn't meta or spoilers.
>>28164659...You know, I think we might want to explore MEMORIES some more.
>Questions"Alright." You say, stepping towards the table. "First things first. Do demons and spirits exist?" You ask, looking Igor in the eye. He seems to be in thought for a moment, before nodding. "Oh, yes, indeed they do." He says finally, unclasping his hands. "Though the term is extendable to almost all entities of a supernatural origin, not merely monsters." "The demons encountered in the realm of man are merely manifestations of an aspect of the collective unconsciousness. These take their forms and shapes from mankind's minds and beliefs." He continues. "However, in another realm, parallel to that in which you live, there exist powerful entities, many of which once roamed the realm of man in the past, inspiring legends and myths.""Those beings are the 'true' demons, being the sources behind many of the beliefs that the 'normal' demons take their forms from." "Now, might I ask why you were inquiring as to the existence of such things?" He asks, resuming his classic posture. "I should hope you have not encountered such a thing."..."There are some rumors floating around." You say after a moment. "Talking about demons in the coal mines, or in the woods." ....Igor's expression seems to flicker through a mixture of emotions that you can't quite place for a second, before resolving to his normal one."Ahhh... Yes, I can see why that would inspire such a question." He says, nodding. "Pay no heed to them unless suspicious happenings begin to occur around them is the advice I will give you. Demons appearing in the realm of man are rare, far more so than Persona users appearing spontaneously." ...That's answered. "Alright. About a week ago..." You pause, looking over to Minako, who nods and moves closer."A week ago, the Dark Hour came back for about half a minute." She says, watching Igor's expression.(1/2)
>>28165023"Since your second to last guest stopped it, I thought you might know something about it."...Igor sighs, and shakes his head. "The Seal remains in place, if that is what you are worried about." He says, looking at her. "Do recall that the Dark Hour was brought about through the works of men. Perhaps it is one of the remnants of the original project that brought this about. Regardless, I know nothing of it."...Minako seems to go quiet at that, now in thought... "Do you know if these can be destroyed?" You ask, pulling out the two masks claimed from those False Shadows and breaking the silence. "Igor looks at the masks appraisingly..."None that are particularly safe as of this moment." He says, shaking his head....Fun....You have a few more questions, like...>Write in
>>28165052...Can we get more info about JOKER?Maybe advice for keeping our friends safe?That'd be good.
>>28165052Does he have any suggestion on how we should proceed from here?
>>28165052>How was JOKER defeated?>Ask Minako about the card, then inquire if we can try trading or fusing like now.>Memories that aren't ours, information popping in our head.>What's with all of this stuff being linked to Jungian psychology? Or Tarot cards? How am I a Fool when it's supposed to be impossible to be born as one? Is it a case of humans just getting it wrong?>What can I do with the Wands card?>How long should it take for arcana to form on a blank card?>Social Links>Last time when you told me about the Deck, it didn't sound that different from a Wild Card. What's the difference between a Deck and Wild Card? What can my "limitless potential" lead to?
>>28165240>What order? >I'm doing three at a time to keep a more reasonable pace.
>>28165240I'd say not to talk about the social links. It'll be like we're doing them just for their own sake.
>>28165240>Joker>Wands>Social Link>What's with all of this stuff being linked to Jungian psychology? Or Tarot cards? How am I a Fool when it's supposed to be impossible to be born as one?

>>28165297While we're there, remind Minako about registering her Personas
>>28165297>Joker>Wands card>Ask about fusion
>More questions"Then the JOKER." You say, putting away the masks. "How was it dealt with originally?"Igor is silent for a moment. "Its... origin was dealt with, though not its creator." He says. "Then all possible revival vectors were rendered inert." "Alas, I feel that such an approach may not work here, at least for the moment." He sighs. "As its creator is still taking an interest in events, and thus can recreate it as much as it wishes." ...You have a feeling he won't be helpful for more information regarding the creator of the JOKER..."Alright. What did that card Margaret gave me last time I was here do? The three of Wands?" You shake your head. ...Margaret coughs. "That card should provide you with a new Persona." She says, resting her arms on the book in her lap. "One of the Wands suit." "Unfortunately, I do not know what sort of Persona it will transform into, or how powerful it will be." She shakes her head. "The only people to make use of such Persona were years 'before my time', as some would say."You shake your head at that. Less information than you would prefer again."What's a Social Link, then?" You ask, catching Minako's attention. "I've had this feeling that I've...Gotten an understanding, I guess, of several people, and according to Miss Arisato, I seem to go somewhat vacant when it happens."Igor's smile widens."Social Links are the power of bonds." He says, folding his hands again. "A method of strengthening your own heart, and thus the power of your Persona. Or, rather, -your- Personas.""As you interact with others and have relationships form, your Social Links will develop." He continues. "That you have developed several so soon is a wonderful omen." That's something answered, at least. >Next?
>>28167250>>Arcana cards>Ask if we can try using the Wands card right now. >>Ask Minako about the card, then inquire if we can try trading or fusing like now.
>>28167331Oops. I meant asking Minako about the card we gave her. We should register stuff before trying to fuse or trade
>>28167250>Do other Persona-users have Social Links? Can two friends have their Social Link give different effects?
>>28167250Ask if we can trade or fuse persons another wild card>>28164598>Gattai with another wild cardplease be with Minako
>You sure about the "Ask about trading or fusing Persona" thing?>If so, 1d20, please.
Rolled 7>>28168485What.Oh what the hell.Lets see what happens anyways.
>>28168485I do not support this course of action.
>>28164320>I'd be vaguely uncomfortable with the idea of almost exploiting people by getting closer to them for more juiceIf you're only getting close to them just for the power boost, it probably won't work. S-links, if I recall, require a sincere and reciprocal relationship. Go out, help people, talk to someone you maybe wouldn't normally, and don't be a shut-in, and S-links (and their benefits) will be a pleasant bonus.Funky Student S-link when?
Rolled 6>>28168485I was going to ask Igor first but since you asked for the roll here it is dood
Rolled 15>>28168485THE TIME HAS COME!

Rolled 5>>28168485I support this plan.There is nothing that can go wrong with asking a girl you've only known dor two weeks to fiddle her soul around with yours.
Rolled 8>>28168888Isnt the fusion we're asking about is Yuu using personas hes collected as a wild card?
Rolled 7>>28168925Nope. Ask about the card and talk about trying fusion like right now seems like we want to fuse with her's...
>>28168518>>28168553>>28168579>>28168681>>28168599>>28168888Rolls gathered. You didn't fuck it up sincerely, at least.
>>28168965And yeah, that's what I gathered from the wording of the action and sentiments of... >>28164598>>28168462
>>28169007How do you fuck up asking a question? Did we call Igor a hook-nosed bitch while asking?>>28164598That's not funny. It's shitposting that degrades posting quality. Just loo at PGQ.
Rolled 15>>28169053Wait what.I posted the puchi.I was just lightly mocking the sentiment.
>>28169082By coming off as an ass to ->>28169139Ah. ...So the question is directed at Igor regarding fusing YOUR OWN Personas, while also asking her about the card. Right?
>>28169192An ass to?And, fusing our own personas too. But we did previously ask about two WCs fusing their Personas in the past, and he wasn't sure. Not that we actually do it right now. We're speaking in hypotheticals, since we have exactly two Personas we can use. She has two, but only one she's willing to use. So asking HER to Fuse right now is moot.
>>28169247Er, asking right now or doing that right now.
Alright, then. Looks like there was a misunderstanding on my part. >Finishing up my writing, then
>>28169365I'm kind of confused. You thought we were asking her to fuse one of our Personae with hers at this moment?
>>28169447I thought you were going to aim the conversation that way, or to swapping persona with her, from the general tone. .
>>28169510That'd be pointless until she gets more Persona. She already mentioned having one Persona she doesn't want to use. And presumably, she wouldn't want to lose it either.
TONIGHT...YOU......UH...SHIT, I GOT NOTHING TONIGHT.
>>28169569True. But I know Questers are not the most consistent or sane of fellows...
>>28169569>>28169586Er, I meant only two Persona currently, and only one she's willing to use. Just from a quick search:> "The Persona compendium is what she uses to fight." Minako says. "So we're starting from scratch on this one? I guess I'll need to register the two I have with me when I can get in there."> ...That's right. You've only seen Jack Frost in use, and she's been talking about another one she's reluctant to use... Consistency can be blamed at a rotating mix of players, new and old. Now, if/when she gets new Persona, it would be okay obviously. Speaking of, I guess we can try getting Jack Frost on our blank card. We could hand her some blanks and let her get the other Death Persona (if it's done).I assume she can't take the Wands one.
>>28169365I guess we can also ask if there's a difference between a WC Persona and onecard Persona.
Rolled 17OP ded?
>Still more questionsYou focus, holding out your hand palm up. ...The wands card materializes over it, floating."Do you mind if I test this right now?" You ask, getting a smile and nod from Igor. ...You clench your fist in the manner you do to summon, and the card... Shatters.-From the sea of souls, I come. Hotei, at your service. Let's live life to its fullest, hm?- The image of a cheerful fat Buddha appears in the back of your mind, and looking behind you, you see the same being floating in the air, cloth sack in hand. ....Knowledge of his abilities flows into you. Fire elemental... You let him fade, before turning to Minako. "We should probably record our Persona while we're here." You say, getting a nod from her as Margaret opens her book."Merely extend your hands, and allow me to see the cards you wish to have recorded." Margaret says. ...Your own cards are done first, and quickly, both Izanagi and Hotei being stored. Minako's are stored almost as quickly... Jack Frost, the Magician one, and the other of the Death Arcana, though she seems reluctant in the latter case. ...The sound of the tome slamming shut echoes somewhat, knocking your thoughts back into place....That's right. "Igor..." You say, turning to face him. "You mentioned fusing Persona." He nods. "Yes, though your current selection is... Far more sparse than ideal for such a task." He says, looking at you meaningfully. "And the two in your possession are unlikely to produce any Persona of value to you."...Pity. "Then... You mentioned swapping Persona was a pos-"(1/X)
>>28170076(2/2)....You pause. Perhaps bringing it up NOW would not be the best of ideas. "Nah, that's something for another time, I suppose." You finish, shrugging. Igor seems to understand, and smiles.....Minako seems to be looking at you curiously......."So," You say quickly. "Miss Arisato, how's that card I gave you doing?"...She shrugs, reaching into a pocket and pulling out the card and showing it to you....It's now a pale blue, with a tinge of black and red towards the center."A bit more colorful than last week, but still developing." She says, shaking her head and putting it away. "I'd give it a few more weeks."...You nod at that, before turning back to Igor."What difference is there between a Wild Card's persona and that of someone who only possesses one?" You ask. ....Igor is silent for a few moments. "Nothing much at all, really." He says finally. "If a person possessing but one Persona manages to find something to strengthen their resolve and heart, theirs may evolve to a more powerful form. Wild Cards are reliant on fusion to improve their own powers." "...Though..." He trails off. "I believe that Wild Cards have a significantly easier time summoning their Persona in the realm of man, which, coupled with their increased versatility, more than accounts for their reliance on fusion.""Yeah, I've difference in the strain it takes summon between the real world and the Midnight Channel..." Minako says, nodding at that. "It's easier there than it was in Tatarus, actually...""Oh, yes. Tatarus, for all that it was, was still technically in the realm of mankind." Igor says, nodding. "The realm you have been exploring appears to be part of the collective unconsciousness." ...Interesting to know, but... It's been nearly effortless for you to summon, after that first time...>Write in>Sheet updated
>>28170071Big update, actually.
Rolled 7>>28170092Is investigate suppose to be rank 0?Cant remember
>>28170134Whoops. Forgot to hit the save button.The only time you used it, you flubbed the XP roll.
Rolled 11>>28170163Oh lol.How many Personas can Yuu support right now?What will it take for him to draw a copy of Jack Frost if he can support an additional persona.Beyond that I think we're done here and it's time to bide Igor goodnight and send Minako home.
>>28170163But it was previously Rank 1. We can actually lose Ranks? Jesus. >>28170092>Ask how exactly Minako gets new Persona if not through Cards.Actually, if I got it right, Margaret just pulled them out for her right? So we wouldnt be using up a card by taking Jack Frost? >Memories that aren't ours, information popping in our head.>Last time when you told me about the Deck, it didn't sound that different from a Wild Card. What's the difference between a Deck and Wild Card? What can my "limitless potential" lead to?
>>28170273It was? Because I only add stuff at rank 0, and I hadn't touched that yet. ...
>So, Memories+Information and Deck/Wild Card?
>>28170303I could've *sworn* it was rank 1, but I can't check the previous version for some reason. Oh well.>>28170412Yes. Oh, ask if other P-users get Social Links. And if a Social Link between two P-Users can actually be different.
>>28167250>"What's a Social Link, then?" You ask, catching Minako's attention. "I've had this feeling that I've...Gotten an understanding, I guess, of several people, and according to Miss Arisato, I seem to go somewhat vacant when it happens."I think it's funny this is apparently the first time she heard of Social Links. Unless she assumed something else was up with Minato.
>>28170412Can we check the Compendium for possible fusions? And get Jack Frost? I doubt she'd take kindly to us trying to take the other one.
>>28170412Ask if we can bring in other people into the Velvet Room, or if it's limited to fellow WCs? Right after the memory thing.
Rolled 16>>28170490Thing is Igor already said its not to our benefit to do as at this point.
>>28170524>To fuse. Obtaining Jack Frost and/or [OBSCURED] is doable...>If you have yens.
Rolled 15>>28170554No pay yet?Gonna need to add a new field to the char sheet then.
>>28170554What does Igor do with the money?
>>28170554So the cost isn't just a game abstraction that we've ditched for this quest? Darn. Why do they need it, then? I can't see them having any expenses that would be payed in human currency. Is it just a symbolic thing to show we're willing to labor to gain our power, or something like that?
>>28170092What's with all the ellipses?
>>28170706Luxury items, maybe? Maybe supernatural people still participate in the economy to an extent.
>>28170412Did we ever ask about the Sea of Souls vs Sea of your Soul thing? If not, now would be the time....Maybe ask if we can talk to our Personae. Because Hotei talked a bit at least.
>>28170736Maybe the magical nature of the Velvet Room only applies for expanding its volume, not upholstering it. They bought a lot of blue velvet, and now they need to pay off their debts with the fabric store.
>>28170706>Really, the "yens" part was a joke, hence the spoiler. >It's the fox you need to worry about. >>28170763>You did. It was explained it's like that because you chose the deck.
Rolled 19>>28170763Thats the lines they say when they are summoned. They don't usually talk, normally.
>>28170794>>You did. It was explained it's like that because you chose the deck.Thats it? Can we ask for more info?And get Jack Frost.
Rolled 11>>28170794Well, lets grab Jack Frost and end this scene
>Alright, could I get 1d20 again?
>>28170794WAIT WAIT WAITFuck fuck fuck.I was looking at the archives. Adachi actually didn't mention Mitsuo and his description to Dojima, huh?
>>28170965>Reasons.>>28170985>He mentioned Mitsuo's description. He DIDN'T mention his own appearance there. >Suspicious, ain't it?
Rolled 3>>28170985>>28170794Or am I misreading things?> "He didn't mention being there, as well as a description of the other high-school student, huh?"That gets a reaction out of Dojima."Oh, did he?" He asks, looking at you carefully. "Wonder why he'd leave that off..."NOPE. I fucking didn't. jesus christ. I can't believe I missed this. >>28170939
We really should try jumping into the TV during the next dark thirty seconds. But be repare full time and all the good bullshit.
Rolled 3>>28171096Thats adorable
>>28171133being honest the only reason I even posted, screw what I said
>>28171096Not when the OP on TRM even says it's a bad idea IC.
>>28171189But bad ideas are fun if you save, besides I just need an excuse to dump femc
>>28171227Just post without them or people will take you seriously.
>>28171418Why couldnt she get with Junpei?
>>28171506this is why
Rolled 12>>28171506Stupei had eyes for only one girl
I have alot less Femc stuff than I thought
Rolled 7>>28171541That pose is silly.Its like he overextended and swung his axe arm right into his crotch and hes trying very hard not to show pain.
>>28171631For all we know that is what happened, too bad we can't ask him He's dead
>Even more questions."Alright. Since I arrived in town, I've been getting... Information I shouldn't know, and memories that don't quite fit." You say, watching Igor's reaction. "Know anything about that?"His expression remains the same. "My, my..." He says, rubbing his chin. "It appears the 'World' is linking you to the collective unconsciousness..." "Yes, that must be it." He continues, looking at you carefully. "The 'World' arcana is feeding you information that is relevant to the situation at hand." That... Makes sense. "Alright, then. That would explain how it's always something at least useful in the background information..." You say, shaking your head. "What else is up with the deck? How does it differ from a normal Wild Card?"Igor goes silent. "There is... Much I cannot say regarding it." He says after a moment. "A normal Wild Card would be restricted to only the major arcana when it comes to Persona, barring mutations." "You may use the Persona of the four suits freely, as well as those of the major arcana." He continues. "In addition to a number of side benefits that you are no doubt noticing." ...That unnatural luck, both good and ill, of yours. The memories..."Yes, I see you are." Igor smiles. "That is the extent of which I can inform you, sadly." (1/2)
>>28172241(2/2)"That's alright. So, the Wild Card is in the deck too, right?" You ask, getting a nod from Igor....That's about it."One more thing for you, Igor." You say. "Can other Persona users form Social Links?"His eyes widen, and his smile soon does as well. "Oh, yes. Provided they form a suitable bond, and gain a deeper understanding of the person on their own, they most certainly are able to." Igor says, spreading his hands as he looks at you. "Though Wild Cards are the most likely to be able to turn such bonds into Social Links.""Alright, then." You say, glancing around. Minako's poking at the cabinet that was on your way in, it seems..."Margaret, could you give me a copy of the Jack Frost that's in the book?" You ask as you turn to face her. ....A moments effort passes, and you can feel the presen--Glad to meetcha, HEE-HO!-...Yep, you've picked up a Persona again. A cold one, it feels like. "I think that's it." You say, cracking your neck. Sure, the place is wider, but it isn't much TALLER yet, is it?Minako nods, looking over at the table."Any chance you have a spare key you could give me?" She asks in a sheepish tone. ....Igor looks at her carefully, before nodding and holding out a hand."I most certainly do." He says, key appearing on the tip of his finger and floating gently. "But please, try to not lose it.""Absolutely." She says, walking over and taking it carefully.....The two of you leave, stepping out of the door. ...The road is the same as when you went into the Velvet Room, sparsely populated.>Write in>Sheet updated
>>28172255We should finish walking her home.
Rolled 9>>28172255"Well then, let get you home. Won't be good to stay out too late."BTW, what time is it now?Is it close to midnight?If it is... might be a good idea to stick around together.
>>28172304>It is not near midnight. >In fact, it's barely a couple of minutes after you stepped into the Velvet Room.
>>28172255>So Minako, how would you like to form a Social Link with me?Jokingly flirt to show we're not *that* serious. Ask if she formed any during her time in SEES, perhaps.Then drop the triple date idea to her.
>>28172351Doesn't sound like a good idea to be honest, not now.
>>28172338Then ask her if she'll be ok at midnight. Reassure her that Yuu will call her and if it does last for more than a minute, he'll come find her.
>>28172433>There's been no Dark Hour-like event since the full moon, you know. >It seems like a singular occurrence.
>>28172464Huh. My bad then. Please drop that suggestion.
>So, finish the walk home?
>>28172517Theres nothing else open at this time right?FEED THE RUMOUR MILLYes.
>Alright, I'm sorry, but it's 4:30 AM and I'm about to crash. Have a silly picture.>I'll finish this post up when I wake up.
>>28172898>So, uh... Keep the thread from dying until then, 'k?
Gonna need a Persona with healing abilities.Probably Titania, soon?Because if we get her, I can totally see this happening.
>Finish the walk homeYou sigh and stretch. "So, ready to finish our walk?" You ask, turning to face Minako with a grin. She sighs, but nods. ""Lead the way." She says as the two of you start moving again, walking down the road through the shopping district....The two of you walk quietly, idly conversing about life and non-Persona related things...Finally arriving at the apartment complex, you say your goodbyes, and turn to start home, sending Dojima an email to let him know......>Take the direct route>Go through the shopping district>Take the long way
>>28177338>Take the long way
>>28177338Lets go through the shopping district, we might find someone there that we know.Plus i think taking the long way home might get us into trouble.
>Looks like Shopping District it is...
>>28173012Hnnnnng>>28177338>Take the long way
>Er... Could I please get one roll of 5d20? For reasons.

>>28177750>And I wanted to be merciful.Thats not ominous at all
>>28177793You had a 1 in the set for the second Notice check set. That's ominous already.

>>28177856>more crits than normal rolls
>>28177856Only the first set. So your notice checks are... >>28155858>>28155927>>28156065>>28156193>>28177733
>Shopping District....May as well go back the same way you came, you think as you start towards the shopping district. . >Notice 20!...On your way, you get a feeling that something is... Off. Like something is watching you. Almost as quickly as it comes over you, it passes, and you shake your head and keep walking. It might be hostile, but since it hasn't moved yet... Well, keeping your guard up is a good idea. ...Getting to the shopping district proper, it looks fairly empty now, at least in the Northern part. A second glance around, though shows... Something over at the shrine...>Shrine>Nope, home!
>Sorry about that delay. Internet bugged out for a few minutes, and I took that chance to check on something.
>>28178466Shrine!Do we have yens?
>>28178466Better see what's going o. At the shrine
>>28178466>Shrinelet's see if the Fox is still there
So for the past few threads there has been talk of some one needing to be with nanako most of the time. What are the odds Minako took Koromaru with her?
>Shrine...You should go take a look at that, you think. Walking through the gate, you glance around....The place is deserted, but you can still feel an odd presence...Another look around reveals... Still nothing. ...You spend a few minutes poking around the old shrine, before finally leaving to go home. Stepping into the main room, you see Dojima still sitting and reading the paper. Nanako is in bed, judging from the time. ...You probably should go to bed, yourself. >Talk to Dojima>Go to bed
Another distraction occurred, sadly.>>28181107>Koro is with Ken, as I said the last time it was asked.
>>28181140>Talk to DojimaSocial Link time!
>>28181140>>Talk to Dojima
>>28181140>Talk to Dojima
>Alright, I'm gonna be running off to get a little bit of stuff done. >Talk to Dojima, though, seems to be the goal.
>>28181437Yep. Adios for now, FloridaBro.
>>28181140We obviously need to bring offerings to the shrine.Like sweet tofu skin.Gods love sweet tofu skin.
>Alright, it sucks to have to say this, but... I can't continue this tonight. >I broke a tooth about an hour ago, and have been trying to find a dentist since. And I can't really concentrate on writing, so...>Thread end.
>>28185017It's funny, this isn't the first time I've seen a quest thread abruptly ended on account of the OP breaking a tooth.
>>28185017Oh god, are you alright?Head to the A&E?
>>28185044I swear, if I wind up being AC-Guy mark 2... >>28185058It's just being distracting. No real pain, and it's just the outside part. So focusing on writing is... Not viable. As a PSA, somewhat burned half-popped popcorn kernels are DANGEROUS.
>>28185161>I swear, if I wind up being AC-Guy mark 2...My memory's fuzzy, and it really does sound like something that would happen to AC-Guy, but I'm pretty sure it was actually Landing Gear.
>>28185161Do get it looked at soon.Ran into a glassdoor once and broke a tooth. The nerve died afterwards.
>>28185234It really is, isn't it? >>28185237Planning to. It appears to just be a corner of it broken off, at least, not a huge chunk gone.
>>28185017thanks for running dood!
