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.

>>28569042>CURRENTLY>Coordinate!"Time it!" You yell, catching Minako's attention as you ready a fireball. She nods, moving back towards you, and launches her own spell the moment you release yours.>20!The fire and ice slam into the Shadow, sending it tumbling over, back into the sludge, mask on its back first.A moment of silence passes, and then the thing rises once more, making a horrible noise as it thrashes. ...The form goes slack, falling back into the pool, and the large mask hangs in the air for a moment before falling itself, sinking back into the sludge as it slowly decreases in size.... >Notice 17!You think you caught sight of a Roman numeral in the back of the mask as it sinks, but you're not quite sure... ...The pool has vanished. Looking across, you see Kanji, looking surprised, while holding a glowing blue card in his hand. ...Minako, though, looks a bit shocked and is staring at where the pool had been. >Actions?
Rolled 17>>28569058See to minako."Are you ok?" Give her a hi5 for job well done. Its enough to throw her off and get her out of her shock. Also tell her about the roman numerals on the back.Also grab Kanji. "Looks like you found your persona. Congrats. whats its name?"
>>28569058check on Minako and see what Kanji is doing
>>28569058Check minako for injuries, congratulate her, check kanji then discuss the thing that made izanagi fadey with minako
Rolled 3>>28569215>>28569222>>28569263As we're doing this we should begin heading back.The chase team has gone on pretty far ahead and we dont want to lose track od them
>Which first? >Check on Minako, yes?
>'k. >Also, could I get five rolls of 5d20, please? I forgot it last thread, and regretted it.
Rolled 5, 8, 9, 16, 16 = 54>>28569551Bleh
Rolled 14, 14, 5, 11, 13 = 57>>285695515 1s incoming

Rolled 2, 2, 9, 2, 10 = 25>>28569551>>28569616shit
Rolled 3, 12, 10, 2, 1 = 28>>28569651>All those near-critfails.Anon. Anon pls

Rolled 11, 2, 20, 4, 3 = 40>>28569551
>Check on Minako.You dismiss your Persona, turning to look to Minako. ...She still seems a bit out of it, and is staring at the same spot."You okay?" You ask, tapping her on the shoulder....There's a pause."...That.." She finally says, turning to look at you. "Was of the Temperance Arcana. Number XIV. It was on the mask..."She pauses for a moment. "I don't think we actually killed it. Its mask didn't break." She continues, sighing. "I'm not sure if it was what I think it was, or just a powerful Shadow, though. ...You nod understandingly. ... After another moment, she sighs. "Did you feel kinda... Off when it clipped us?" You ask, glancing around. "Because I felt like Izanagi was... Distant, or something. Not quite attached to me." She nods."Yeah, Jack Frost seemed to be disconnecting, too." She says, still somewhat shocked sounding. "I think it may have been some sort of 'Mind' attack, that was disrupting our Persona..."...You have an odd feeling that letting it hit someone who gained their Persona through accepting their Shadow could be a bad idea...Still, Minako seems less out of it now. >Check with Kanji?>Get going, then check with Kanji?
>>28570292Let's pat Kanji on the back and congratulate him on his new persona while we walk back. Maybe he can tell us where he went, since he wasn't there when we looked. I want to know what he did
>>28570292>Check with Kanji?
Rolled 4, 6, 15, 10, 6 = 41>>28570292Put a comforting hand on her shoulder. "Still we beat it up good. We did it once, we can do it again." Thumbs up and then:>>Check with Kanji
>>28570292>Check with Kanji
Isn't this about the time 24 started?
>Comfort, then check with Kanji"Don't worry." You say, putting your hand on her shoulder and giving Minako a thumbs up. "We got it once, we'll do it again."She nods, taking a breath. "Yeah." Minako says. "We're strong enough to take it out for real. I mean, we managed to make it fold, right?" "Yep." You take your hand off her shoulder, and turn to look at Kanji, who's-
>>28571039...Standing with a Persona floating in front of him, looking awed."Oi, Tatsumi! Put that away and let's get going!" You yell, causing him to jump a little, but nod. ....A few minutes walking brings you closer to the apartment complex that the Shadow had led you to earlier.According to Kanji, his Persona is 'Take-Mikazuchi'. He had decided to get to cover and not get in your way, but..."The hell of a kinda man would I be if I left ya out to dry?"So he got out of cover, and was about to start trying to hammer the Shadow when he heard a voice.That was 'sea of your soul', as well... ...You can hear Chie yelling from ahead.>Hurry up?
>>28571060That's pretty natural, don't worry about it man, let's go show the others.We should check with them
>>28571060"You're a good man, Kanji. Glad you're with us."Hurry up, they're probably engage.
>>28571346God I hate Mitsuo. Something about his face just makes me irrationally angry.
>>28571374IS IT THE FACT THAT I SHOW UP EVERY FUCKING EPISODE?
>>28571463No, it's his fucking face. Even when I was playing p4 it was just so irritating to look at, despite his low appearance time
>Hurry up. You give Kanji a thumbs up and a nod after he finishes his story, and the group accelerates.Nearing the gate, you hear the sound of violence, along with Chie shouting ... Something. Turning into the courtyard, you see-...Chie abusing Teddie, and-"-DUMB BEAR WE WANTED TO GO AFTER THEM, NOT TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM!" She shouts as Yukiko and the Shadow laugh to the side and Yosuke seems to be hiding behind a bench.....>Write in
>>28571547Chie chill the fuck out. You're not being beary nice right now
>>28571589Really it's probably the polar opposite of reasonable behavior.
>>28571589>>28571603If you don't act, this situation could turn grizzly.
>>28571634Fur real, man.
>>28571634What an unbearable notion. No choice but to intervene.
>>28571686But shes having a bear of a time.How often does she get to subject someone to sm?
>>28571810Yosuke shouldn't just sit there and bear with it. He should stand up for himself.
Actually this is where they cam from?This is still good. Maybe we can find out where they entered the TV world.They'll likely stick to a single point of entry/exit and we can get dojima to help assign folks to stakeout the area.Well its that or we can wait and see if they'll return to this location. (Quite possible)
>>28572047We're IN the TV world.Aren't we?
>>28572074What I mean is find their point of entry and see where it corresponds to in the real world.
>>28572074>Yep. It's the Midnight Channel's version of it.
>>28572078dont matter, she's been in here for awhile. She sure wasn't thrown into this area. She escaped from her dungeon and ran here
>>28572096But the trail we're after isnt mayumi's isnt it?Its a pair of people who have sufficient power to defeat shadows.
>>28572130Shit man, I don't even know.There's something important though, and we're chasing that.
>>28572130>No. It's at least ONE person with sufficient power to defeat Shadows.
>>28572165I stand corrected.>>28572145We'll need to see the next scene and do further investigations.Perhaps we should spend some xp into the investigation skill already...
>>28572213I think this a case of player misunderstanding, not investigation skill
>>28572474>Probably. I know how bad you guys can be, especially when I'm treating the plot threads like a plant.
>>28572498>like a plant?
>>28572532Branching.Like you get the choice to kill XKilling X goes to one direction and sparing him changes the story drastically. I think
>Stop itYou sigh, heading towards the... Kerfluffle seems to describe it best. "Satonaka, lay off of him." You say, shaking your head. "There was water everywhere back there- I'm not surprised his picked up the wrong scent."Chie pauses as she's drawing back to punt Teddie again, and he takes his chance.Half a second later, you have a bear trying to hide behind you, poorly. Chie still seems annoyed, but has cooled down a bit."Ah, alright." She says after another minute of fuming. "Wasn't even hitting him that hard...""Sensei! You're the beary best! She was ruffling my fur!"...You can feel the sighs coming from everyone."So, Narukami, what kept you?" Yosuke asks, standing up from behind his cover and brushing himself off like nothing happened. ...No one buys it. "Shadow. Big one, too." You say, shaking your head. "Tatsumi managed to get a Persona while we were dealing with it, too."A glance shows Kanji seems somewhat embarrassed by the newly gai-"The hell you lookin' at?"Okay, maybe just annoyed.There's chatter for a few minutes, then a pause..."So... We don't have any leads, huh?" The Shadow asks, glancing around. "Sorry 'bout the idiot bear being an idiot. I've been tryin'...."There's general murmuring. "And a lot of time has passed..." Yukiko says, looking at her phone. "We probably should be heading out of here...">Agree, lead people on out?>No, more investigating!
>>28573099Yeah, I guess we should head out.We've been in there for awhile
>I need to get to bed. 'night, all. I'll try and continue running 'Tomorrow'. Have an "interesting facts" chart.
>>28573141Is this supposed to be a clue or is it a red herring? Are you fucking with us
>>28573155>"Are">But no, this is neither. Just a thing lurking around my HD to toss up before sleeping. Have another.
>And one more for good measure. >Just keep the thread alive until I come back, m'kay? Should be around noon, but intermittently.
>>28573283I'll try.If it's still up when I wake up that is
Bump before bed.Don't die on me
Gotta keep this thread alive... Stayin' alive, stayin' alive. Ah-ah-ah-ah.
>>28573940I think this needs a boop.
>>28574334Dude, bump when it's at least on page 8 or somethingEven though we do have shitload of posts left
Golden here. Gonna be back home in about an hour. What's gonna be your action? Agree and head back?
>>28578303Still voting to go out.
Rolled 11>>28578303Time to get out.We've found some new stuff at least so today hasnt been a total bust.As everyone piles out of the TV, be the last out. When its just Teddy, Shadow Yuu and Yuu, then question our Shadow regarding his disquiet earlier today. Find out what he was hesitant to talk about.I expect we'll stop at Junes for a pick-me-up before we split for the day but tell them what the new opponent was able to do. Namely the feeling of the personas growing distant. Let them know of the dangers of its attack that since they embraced their shadows, they getting hit might be very harmful.
>>28579539I'd say Kanjis persona alone was good enough to make the entire trip worth it.
Rolled 17>>28579587Yea, that was a good thing but it still feels like we're failing about in the dark without a clue and that we're not getting anywhere fast. Its kind of fustrating.
>>28579694Remember that in P4 that didn't actually get anything done for a long while; the first half of the game was basically gather party members. We've very much ahead of the curve right now.
>>28578303Head back, yeah. SUP FLORIDABRO
>>28579734We haven't even gotten to parrot or Rise yet.Oh man, Rise is gunna be fun.
>>28579770Neither of them show up for a while. We can't do anything about them until they are actually in town.Actually, FeMC could probably hire Naoto to join the investigation, if we needed some help working on it. She is a PI.
>>28579805Yeah. Personally I'm hoping we get katsuya somehow.But given the end of P2, I suppose that wouldn't make much sense. OP might be able to work something out though. Katsuya best waifu
>>28579854Well, as is, we probably can't do anything to really push forward yet. It's a matter of waiting for something to happen.
>>28579881Yeah. I suppose. Jump right into the TV next time we see someone on the midnight channel
>>28579904We shouldn't do that until we can get some Goho-M or something. I don't think we have anything like that right now? And it's really important that we don't go off half-cocked until we have a decent chance to get out of dodge.
>>28579942Can't teddy summon TVs to leave?
>>28579991We won't have Teddie unless you want us to camp out at Junes, and I doubt they're open 24 hours. Or take him with us, but he probably needs some time to adjust to a changing environment; dropping him in the real world out of nowhere may be a bit overwhelming.
>So, that "hour" turned into "hour+trip out shopping". >Writan.
>>28580010Also:>Recall that Yu's Shadow left an exit in the room on the other side of your bedroom TV.
>>28579805Oh, and, uh...>Hire
>>28580994We can pay her with food and rent? A birdcage and parrotfood isn't that expensive
>>28581025Oh you>>28580994Are you implying s/he will take the job voluntarily?
>>28581048Oh, that's right. Adachi mentions that Naoto will work cases for free if she finds them interesting enough.
>AgreeYou nod. "Yeah, we're all getting pretty tired from the walking and fights, right?" You ask, looking around the group...General murmurs of agreement can be heard, and the group starts back, generally questioning Kanji about his new Persona...Turns out it's also lightning aligned... And possesses a wide-area attack, unlike Izanagi. During a lull, you mention the 'disconnect' you felt when being hit by that Shadow's attack, and the potential effects of it on Yosuke and Chie... Both seem disconcerted by that. As the group arrives back on the platform, Kanji takes notice of the Velvet Room's door, and pats his pockets before pulling out a key... ...Both Yukiko and Kanji try it, to no effect... Odd... >Continue with the plan to leave.>Igor visit.
>>28581349Does or doesn't kanji have it?Visit with minako and kanji if he does
>>28581349Visit with the key-holders. Ask why they can't go in themselves.
>>28581365>Kanji has a key. Yukiko also has a key. >But neither Yukiko or Kanji could open the door.
>>28581365Wait, yukiko has a key doesn't she. Ignore the question
>>28581349Cant we bring in non-keyholders? We could try it
>>28581349Igor previously said that the Velvet Room can support 3 people at that time, right?Since we know that there are 2 confirmed people that can access the room (us and Minako), as well as one possible Persona user (the people we were tracking), perhaps the Velvet Room is currently filled to capacity, and Yukiko & Kanji must wait awhile?
>>28581456Maybe we'll run into tatsuya or the boy with the eating.Or even junpei that tking fuck ken
>>28581494If we run into shota then I am all for feeding him to the dog. God damn it, I had to keep reshuffling my team after that until I could feel comfortable again.
>>28581542Fucking asshole ken.Still mad. if femc is here maybe shinji is alive too
>>28581578I think Golden said that it was unlikely, but not impossible. Remember that suppressing his Persona was killing him anyway
>>28581593I'm not expecting it, but I can stIll hope.As long as he doesn't rise from the dead as a boss
>>28581622I don't think we settled who "Yu" is either, did we?
>>28581664...Isn't it obvious? [Spoiler]Lucifer.
>>28581692I kind of wanted to say Nyx but then we'd just be rehashing the previous game.
>>28581664Don't think so. Maybe he is legitimately yus shadow, but yus not actually yu. He's you
>>28581710nY is nY. nY is Yu. "Yu" is "Yu." This is what we know.
>>28581732>nYI tried to flip that. It didn't work out. You get the idea, though.
>>28581706We've already got the dark night and joker. Nyx seems like a likely suspect before we find out this is all yukikos dream because she's actually really sick and doesn't want to run the inn
>>28581750Okay. Well at least we'd be inverting P3, though, if that is the case.
>>28581732That makes me want to name Shadow Yu "Nu", but it's a chick's name
>>28581886I've got no objection
>>28581886I want to see he says. Go for it.
>>28581750Those two just mean Nyarly/Kirijo Group, though...
>>28582012That's what I thought of too.
>>28582012Okay, so our antagonist is an immortal assassin, our protagonist is basically Mir, and we have evil clone we're naming after a yandere killbot. Who wants to bet we can rake up a better death toll than the P4 cast could?
>Sorry about this delay,... Got dragged into a side-trip again...>So, visit Igor?>If yes, please roll me 1d20.
Rolled 18>>28582711Bring others if possibleExcluding Shadows of course
Rolled 8>>28582711Wonder what'll happen.
>>28582807Of all the times to NOT post Char...
>>28582744We can just stop rolling after a 20 right? Or do we still need a third
>>28582836Pretty sure it's mandatory or I wouldnt roll a 1We CAN spend Fortune to negate it though
>>28582865>>28582878Relax, he's out of the roll pool
>>28582897I wouldnt do that. Fortune is to avoid PK
>>28582865>>28582878>The sad part is that 18 still works...>>28582897>>28582909Eh. until I say "Writing", it's open until the pool of 5 is filled. And this is a half-thread. No refresh on per thread, since it was going to be finishing that fight.
>>28582938Of 5? I thought it's 4!>>28582865You motherfucker!
>>285829714 for rolls. 5 for crits.
>>28582971Well, I guess 18 is ok too
>>28582991So we dont need to roll a fifth time?
>Try to visit Igor with the others.You sigh, walking over to the door and nodding to Yukiko and Kanji. "Grab onto my arm." You say, waiting until they do so and then cracking open the door.>18!You can feel... Some power flow down through you as you do so, and both Yukiko and Kanji's eyes widen as they see it. The three of you step in, followed shortly by Minako."Ahhh, Mr. Narukami." Igor says, shaking his head. "I see you have brought guests today."...There's an awkward silence as Margaret looks at the four of you from her seat next to Igor... >Actions?
>>28583016>You do, actually, provided there isn't a ridiculous delay in rolling. .
>>28583022So we fought a giant mass of fuckIt's related to a goblet and has Temperance arcana. Any input?
>>28583022Ok so what was up with that mudmonkey we fought and are minakos and my persona okay
>>28583022We should probably ask him if this was okay. I mean, we kind of wanted to introduce them to the room, since they seemed to have keys for it, but he was shaking his head, so maybe it's not okay with him.
>>28583116It's Velvet Room, you know. They wouldn't be able to enter if they weren't permitted
>>28583022Introductions are in order!
>>28583170Yeah I guess an introduction would be nice. Also why can't the others emter
>>28583160I don't know, OP kind of did weird things with the abstractions in the games already. Like the social link events being directly addressed by the characters, when those were always carefully directed around uninvolved people.
>So, introductions, then questioning on the Shadow from earlier?
>>28583587Sure, why not
>>28583587And making sure izanagi is ok
>>28583587ask about Teddie, maybe?And have us gain new personas/fusion. Same with the other guys
>>28583644Izanagi is "Yu" though. There really isn't a need to check on it.
>>28583644>>28583734>Yeah, after about 20 minutes, it went back to normal. That spell was temporary.
>>28583768With Izanagi + Yukisona + Kanjisona + Jack Frost, any interesting fusions that can come out?Also, check out the Igor program to see canon fusions
>>28583812Incidentally, if the Nyx theory were true, would we be able to fuse Thanatos later on?
>>28583862Fuck thanatos we need Thor. Thor fucks bitches and thunder reign is ridiculously good. Death is only good for dealing with trash
>>28584027Alice has the best instant kill and is the kawaii-est Persona.
>>28584122Last I checked it didn't do jackshit to any major bosses, making her a garbage truck. Meanwhile Thunder reign has an insane stun chance.
>>28584174She still has seven other skill slots to play with, though.
>>28584266But none of those will be more useful than being able to stunlock bosses with thunder reign. Don't get me wrong she's still great and comparable to thanatos and every other ultimate, but just not as great at crushing bosses. At least in my opinion
>>28584380Even so, if I don't use her, I tend to use someone like Surt over Thor. There's nothing wrong with him, and Thunder Reign is great, but I guess I'm kind of particular like that.
>>28584416I understand completely. Ultimate spells aside, I prefer Odin and Thanatos.This spelltalk made me wonder if we can use fusion spells though, and if it works between two party members or two of our personas if we can.
>>28584497MC could use them because he had two "parts," right? So "Yu" should be able to, because Nu said he couldn't be Yu. For normal people, it should be fine if they work together, but being a Wild Card won't be enough.
>>28584545Makes sense, I'd prefer it if it was an actual teamwork think anyways.
>>28584627It was in P4G, wasn't it? If a teammate initiated an All Out Attack, an enemy was still alive, and the appropriate teammate was present (Naoto and Kanji, Teddie and Yosuke, Yukiko and Chie), they would perform a combo attack.
>>28584679It wasn't quite a fusion spell though. It was... Some shit
>>28584497>There was a Fusion Spell used a while back, by Minako/Yosuke/Chie/Yukiko.
>>28584713It wasn't exactly the same, no. But I didn't remember it actually being given a specific name, so I assumed it was the same idea.
>>28584679Wouldn't know, I only played regular P4, I don't even have the right system to play golden.I remember specifically selecting fusion spells though which depended on having the right persona, not teammates.>>28584725When was that?
>>28584770In P2 fusion spells depended on correct spells being used by any teammates in correct order, like Aqua->Magma->Agi created a huge pillar of fire
>>28584822Okay, I think I'm thinking of p3p(I think) then, which had specific cards you select.It's been too long since I've played these games I'm getting everything wrong
>>28584892MC could use Fusion spells solo, but he was a special case. We mentioned this earlier >>28584545.
>Introductions."Ah, right." You say, breaking the silence. "Igor, Margaret, please meet Yukiko Amagi and Kanji Tatsumi. Amagi, Tatsumi, Igor and Margaret."The four nod, and Minako takes a seat at the side while everyone else nods. "So... If you don't mind me asking, where is this?" Yukiko asks, looking around and stepping to one of the sides, pulling aside the curtains on the window....Solid white fog surrounds the car, and you can hear Igor's grin intensifying. "Ahhh, yes. " He says, clasping his hands. "Welcome to the realm between the conscious and the unconscious, and indeed to the Velvet Room." "I must say, I am rather unprepared for the two of you to be here." Igor continues, catching the attention of Yukiko and Kanji. "I had planned to wait a while longer before contacting you in the same manner I did for Mr. Narukami.""Well, not quite the same manner, but similar enough..." He trails off."As for a more accurate 'Where', we are moving through the fog of the collective unconsciousness, towards a fate I know not." He finishes, resuming a normal seating position. ...May as well ask now. "Earlier today," You start, looking to Igor. "Tatsumi, Miss Arisato, and myself fought a powerful Shadow, related to the Temperance arcana. Do you have any idea what it was?"...Igor seems to think for a moment, before a deck of cards appears on the table.
>>28584949"Oh, yes. I presume it was rather unbalanced looking? Top heavy, noticeably asymmetrical, or similar?" He says, taking the top card and revealing it to you... Unsurprising, given the subject. You nod. "It sounds very much like a manifestation of the reversed Temperance arcana. Where Temperance is a merging of opposites in balance, its reversed form is...""Well, the opposite. A lack of balance and moderation. Separating the same. Unharmonious."...>Ask about ...?>Let others ask questions>Write in
>>28584971Ask about the cup
>>28584971Mention the mask
>>28584971Why was it there, what was with the cup? Why wouldn't he let the other two in?
>>28584994>>28585056The cup's suppose to be an indicator of weaknesses/strengths, I think (along with the other objects on the card). Nothing else.So, mention the mask (and its similarities to the other Nyarly-spawned Shadow masks), and that it arose in the location corresponding to where we first encountered (and forcibly manifested) Joker....And, perhaps, that we poked at the pool with our finger and a pole..?
>>28585389Man, he doesn't need a fucking play-by-play. If you want his input, give him the pertinent details, but have some restraint.
>>28585389Well if cup doesn't mean anything, Igor will tell us that. Always try for as much info as you needI just don't like how ominously it floated
>Cup and mask."That makes sense." You say, shaking your head. "When I threw a rock in, it surfaced shortly after, shaped like a cup. And the Shadow had a huge mask, similar to these."You pull out the two masks claimed from the False Shadows, setting them on the table again. Igor seems to be in thought..."Perhaps the cup was merely an attempt to manifest?" He says, shaking his head. "Regardless, it appears to be an anomaly, which I have yet to encounter.""The mask, though, is common among all Shadows. Of course, one of such power would have a larger and more firm attunement to an arcana.... " Igor trails off. "Well, -if- it was as these two masks are, I suppose we have significantly more to worry about than a mere JOKER summoner." He sighs. "Do take care if you should encounter it again, and when you do attempt to eliminate it, please destroy the mask and do not let that bear consume pieces of it."You file that away for later reference, as Kanji finally seems to have gotten a question together.."Uh... Both Miss Arisato and Narukami have th' 'wild card', right?" He asks, getting a nod from Igor. "Does that mean Amagi and I do, too?""Almost certainly." Igor sighs. "I had planned to observe the two of you in action before extending an invitation to this realm, so as to understand your strengths and mindsets better." "Alas, Mr. Narukami took the initiative and invited you in, in a rather forceful manner." He continues. "Well, we shall make the best of what we can...">Ask about ...?>Let others ask questions>Write in

>>28588636I doubt we're strong enough to summon personas into the real world. Strega could, but that was because they were hopped up on drugs or some shit, and the p3 crew kind of brute-forced it with the evokers
>>28588662>You have summoned in the real world, actually. During the fight with JOKER, for one.
Rolled 13>>28588676...Huh. Didnt notice that at the time.
>>28588676Oh.Well shit, maybe we can make some money sat the electric plant then.
>Apologize, let the others ask questions"...Sorry about that." You say sheepishly, rubbing the back of your head. Igor just smiles. "Ah, there is no need to apologize. This is merely a minor setback." He says, shaking his head. "It would have made determining both of their secondary Arcana far easier, though."That's interesting. You shrug, and step to the side, taking a seat on one of the side benches.Minako nods, standing from her seat and taking a step towards the small table."Igor... Was that one of those Shadows?" She asks, looking at him seriously. "A second wave of them?"'Those' Shadows? What is she even...Igor's expression becomes stony, and he clasps his hands. "I do not know." He says, shaking his head. "Not all is revealed to me, after all. I am merely knowledgeable, not omniscient.""I do, however, know that the seal still holds. She remains blocked from Minako nods, and heads towards the entrance. "I'm going to head out. There's something I need to check on..." She says, cracking open the door and ste-Huh. You basically vanish when you leave. You did not know that....Yukiko looks like she has a few questions as well...>Let her get to it?>Write in
>>28589247We're not getting an answer out of Igor or Minako. Let's just let Yukiko have the floor.
>>28589247>FUCK, somehow copied the thing without a line.>"I do, however, know that the seal still holds. She remains blocked from mankind's grief."
>>28589247>"I do, however, know that the seal still holds. She remains blocked fromMinako nods, and heads towards the entrance. Something is missing
>>28589247>>Let her get to it?Make sure we get them to register their personae though. Then see our fusion options.
>>28589332Fixed here >>28589330
>>28589247Hmm... is minako going to question shadow yuu? I get the feeling she is. She might have noticed his disquiet earlier as well.Kinda want to be there if it happens.
>>28589247Ah shit, fell asleep waiting. Let's let her ask and leave after Minako
Bump?Also pic related as OP image, y/n?
>>28592492I like his current one, it's recognizable.
Actually, I was just thinking. We said "Yu" could probably use fusion spells by himself, but could Nu? I mean, Nu is Yu, but if Yu is dead, and Nu is alive, then Nu can't be just Yu. That is to say, Nu is Yu, and Nu is Nu.
>Gah. Fell asleep again. Finishing writing.
>>28596787You sleep too much
>>28596948Or not enough
>>28596948>>28596995More the latter. I had to be up at 5:30 AM yesterday to go work. Then I wound up on a reasonably-distanced shopping trip. The weekend after Thanksgiving. So yeah, exhausted, even if I didn't show it or believe it myself...
>>28597030I think it's safe to say he's gone again. This guy needs a doctor or something.
>>28597030You should take a break every once in awhile, mang
>Let her get to itYukiko goes to the table, looking thoughtful."If Narukami can obtain more Persona by using those cards," She starts, glancing over to you. "How could Tatsumi and I gain more?"Igor is silent for a moment."At the present moment? Much the same way." He says, shaking his head. "Unfortunately, for the two of you such a method shall be significantly more difficult for the time being." Yukiko nods. "You said at the present moment, though." She says after a second. "Does that mean there's other methods that we might be able to use later?""Indeed, though they are as far more reliant on the winds of fortune than the method you can use now."He sighs. "If Mr. Narukami told you of demons as I expected him to, then this will be simple enough.""Should you encounter the 'false' demons, there is a fair chance you could negotiate with them, and allow them to imprint themselves upon your mind as Persona." He finishes. ...Yukiko looks like her questions have been answered. >One more thing... [Write in]>Ready to leave?>Write in
>>28597299Blame getting hungry for that. >>28597313I try. Got today and tomorrow free, so there's something. .
>>28597330I should be able to fault you for that, but I can't. >>28597323I don't think there's anything else we need to ask Igor, though; just Nu.
>>28597323Nah, let's get out of here and go back to the real world. We've been in here for a long time.Demon negotiation will be pretty fucking neato though
>>28597323GoldenOP, which ones are the false demons? The one we just fought? >time to leaveStill need to ask shadow yuu about the stuff he was hiding earlier in private.
>>28597374Demons probably look like actual persona rather than blobs of darkness. I'm sure when we encounter one he'll at least change up the description or tell us something feels off. Then we can dance for it until it likes us
>>28597374>Taken from thread 21.>"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.">It's the former ones. >That thing was a Shadow of some variety. >>28597443>Indeed I will.
>Time to leave"Well, Igor, thank you for the information." You say, getting a nod from him. "Again, I'm sorry about disrupting your plans like that."Igor shakes his head, waving you off. "As I said, it is of no real concern." He starts, before turning to face Yukiko and Kanji. "The two of you are welcome to reenter this room at your convenience."Both Kanji and Yukiko say their thanks, and the three of you head towards the exit of the Velvet Room......As you step out of the door, you can see the others off about thirty feet, talking quietly. Yosuke and Chie seem somewhat disturbed by what Minako is saying, but you can't quite make it out...>Check on them?>Write in
>>28597653Ceck in on them. Is there something we should know
>>28597653We should probably poke at it. What could she have found that was pertinent to share with those two but also rather unsettling?
>>28597729Could be somehing we know, or she might be wondering why those 2 don't have keys. Which makes me want to ask why they didn't get keys
>>28597653Normally I'd say eavesdrop, but this is a team. Just walk right up and >check on them.
>>28597753They're not cool enough
>>28597849If it was a cool club why would yukiko be there. It'd be yu, minako, naoto, kanji and rise
>>28597874Because they didn't get dungeons before joining and I guess OP didn't want to have our party members get kidnapped. That's why Yukiko.
>>28597874>rise>coolOh, that's a nice oneI'm serious though, Yosuke and Chie got their personas from shadows, Yukiko and Kanji developed them on their own

>I have no luck and I must roll
>AskYou walk up to the group, catching the last few words..."-yet, alright? I want to check on some things first." Minako finishes, getting nods from the four she's talking to. "Yo." You say, giving a short wave. "What are you talking about?"Minako blinks. "Oh, just how we shouldn't see what letting anyone use an Evoker to summon would do." She says, waving it off.Ah, right. Igor mentioned how it would be bad for you to use one... You nod. "Seems reasonable." You say, looking to Yosuke and Chie, who are nodding at you frantically."Yeah, I don't envy you for that method of summoning."Minako shrugs. "Anyway, time for us to head out, right?" She asks, getting agreement from the rest.As the others slowly filter out of the TV, you hang back, and gesture to the Shadow that you want to talk. ...A few minutes later, it's you, the Shadow, and Teddie on the platform. "So, what'd you wanna talk about?" The Shadow asks, cracking his neck. >Write in
>>28598569I wonder if people are gonna try and follow through on my stupid naming joke
>>28598617Probably. What were we asking him about, again? His reaction to the place where Joker died?

>JOKER spot, sludge"So." You say, as Teddie wanders off to tinker with something. "Why the reaction earlier?"He glances around, then shrugs. "That stuff reminded me of... I can't even remember." He says, shaking his head. "I do know, though, that me comin' in contact with it is a baaaaaddd idea." You nod at that. Whatever the thing that was summoned was is obviously nasty... If it's related to the False Shadows somehow, well... "Well, I'll keep that in mind the next time we encounter that thing." You say....The two of you stand there in silence."So, uh... Decide on a name yet?"The Shadow nods, rubbing his chin."I've got a coupla ideas. Seta Souji, for one." He says, looking at you. "Maybe Raidou Kuzunoha..."He seems to be in thought. "This is kinda a big thing, y' know." He says after a minute. "It's gotta be 'Me', not 'You'.">Write in
>>28599378>Raidou KuzunohaYou know that's a movie character, right?
>>28599412He's the main character of the Devil Summoner games.>>28599378Well, it's probably for the best that he makes it on his own. It's an important step if he's going to be his own man from now on. Wait, didn't he tell us Yu was supposed to have died a bit over a year ago, by the way?
>>28599467>He's the main character of the Devil Summoner gamesI know that, but Chie drops a line in dialogue that there may be a movie/s in-universe about him
>>28599467Let him come up with his own
>>28599499That's not what I meant. I just wanted to know if I was remembering that right.
>>28599524No I know, but I think he should make hisown name anyways. A name is important
>>28599378>Well, other than 'Yu', when you look at yourself, do you see yourself with that name? You can try looking through books for names. Or get a name based off the SYMBOLISM of everything.
>So, what's the response?
>>28599656Voting he names himself
>>28599656Let him name himself, and warn Teddie not to eat masks
>>28599656A difficult choice but I'll vote to Raidou Kuzunohapartially because they look nothing alike
>>28599777Or Serph. He looks like him, a little
>Tell him to keep thinking on it."Well," You start, shrugging. "A name's personal.""Other than 'Yu', when you look at yourself, do you see yourself with that name? If so, great." You continue, getting a nod from the Shadow. "Otherwise, you could look at the meanings and symbolism behind it, and choose one you like."He sighs. "Yeah, yeah. This is just a pain in the ass, anyway." He says, shaking his head. "Eh. I'll figure something out."Looks like you managed to help him out a little, at least...Oh, right. Masks."Hey, Teddie!" You say, catching his attention."Yes sensei?" "Don't eat all the masks you find, alright?"Teddie nods. "Sure thing, sensei! I'll save some for you!" He says, sparkling happily....You can hear a snort coming from the Shadow. >Anything else?
>>28599994Do we know if either of them can maintain themselves in the real world? Maybe we should talk about it/test it
>>28600023No, we shouldn't. Nu looks exactly like "Yu," and having them both around is going to cause trouble. Pretty sure it was enough of a stretch just to have both around Minako.
>>28600048>is going to cause troubleWhat trouble, since when are twins illegal?We may need them in the real world, sooner or later, might as well plan ahead
>Just about to run out to grab some food. I'll toss up an update when I get back.
>>28600094Well, Persona is excessively anime, so I guess mysterious identical twins nobody knew existed showing up from nowhere unannounced is pretty reasonable.
>>28599994Oh hey. Thread or two ago, we wanted to check the other side of our room's TV, but didn't. Why don't we ask ShadYu to go wait for us there?
>>28600128Why should we announce that. The only one who can give us trouble is Dojima, since he's able to comprehend Shadow!Yu's nature and see threat in him. Everyone else we tell that we're not even relatives, just look alike and it's nano their business
>>28600156Alright, I guess it's nothing as long as Dojima stays unaware of him.
Did we ever meet jewfox?
>>28600500We did notBut jewfox in P4 was just means to restore SP, so there's no need to have him here
>>28600523B-but the social link.
>>28600568Also shit. Character development is literally non-existant, we can use our time for something better than being an errand boy and OP can use that slot for a better character
>>28600616I guess your right. Are we even doing any social links outside of the main cast? I'd be okay replacing them with new party members for the most part
>>28600680Not at this point, although it is known that Namatame is associated with Hanged Man arcana, take it as you will
>>28600156Dojima can be wary, but has no real reason or authority to say no about him.The only real issue with walking around Shadows is potentially letting baddies in the real world know what we and they are.
>>28600500>Who do you think is stalking you at the Shopping District?
>>28600713>Dojima can be wary, but has no real reason or authority to say no about himStill, I'd like to avoid discord>The only real issue with walking around Shadows is potentially letting baddies in the real world know what we and they areGood point. Although that is not believable, how a person be a buddy to his shadow. That is, of course, if baddie is aware of what "person's shadow" even is
>>28600723Actually, while we're talking about Shadows, it was mentioned that "Yu" has a Shadow, but that we have yet to meet it. It was also mentioned that it was not due to being protected by a third party. However, is whatever would constitute "Yu"s Shadow otherwise incapable or restricted from interacting with him currently? Is that the reason we haven't been able to run into it?
>>28600839>Yes.>"Yu Narukami"'s Shadow is off being a dick elsewhere.>So, what was your action?
>>28601883Guess we're about ready to leave
>>28601883I can't think of anything else we need to do right now unless someone wants to use our The World perk to ask for something a little more detailed, but I'm probably the only one who cares right now.
>>28601883Ask Shadow!Yu to go back to the room behind our bedroom's TV and wait for us there while we get out of the TV World.
>So, back. >Any objections to me combining >>28602036 and >>28602812?
>>28602855nnnope, go for it.
>>28602812Why not just talk to him here if you need too?It's not like we aren't a team>>28602855Guess not
>>28602927>I believe it was because there was a desire to see what had changed on the other side a few threads ago, and a general "Not without an exit" sentiment.
>Ask the Shadow to meet on the other side of your room's TV, then leaveYou sigh and give a short wave, turning to walk to the TVs out."Oh, one more thing." You say, as you're about to step through. "Not-me, mind meeting me back where we met later tonight?""Yeah, sure." The Shadow looks surprised, but nods."Later, then." You say, stepping through the screen and landing in the middle of Junes' electronic department. A glance around shows that it's all-clear, and you make your way out of the store. ....It's somewhat dark when you step outside. A glance at your watch puts it around six-thirty... >Head home>Go to the Shopping District>Write in

>Shiroku StoreYou head out towards the Shopping district.After a bit of a walk, you find that general store you've walked by a number of times... Stepping inside, you see the old woman tending the register, and-...Are those that thing that the Shadow gave you a few weeks ago? ...They're somewhat affordable, too...
