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.>Before we start... Could I get 7d20, please?

>>29518116THE BLOOD GOD IS PLEASED.
>Previously >BufuYou form another blast of cold with Jack Frost and launch it, letting it slam into the slime-thing.It lets out a roar, and the hiss of steam is finally loud enough to recognize from afar.It seems to be staggering as you send a final bufu at it, slamming into its head and causing it to collapse....The slime drips off the bones slowly, and the fur seems to evaporate as it does so.Adachi pulls himself out from behind the bush he took cover with."I-is it dead?" He asks, glancing at the scorch marks on the road, then at the 'body'. >Write in
>>29518197"Only one way to find out." Tread carefully towards the thing. See if it dropped something.
>>29518197Snap pictures of it for later analysis before it evaporates completely.And poke it with the stick, see if there any bit we can salvage from its corpse."I think so?"
The last time we tried to check if one was dead we almost died. Just saying.
>Pictures, investigateYou shrug, turning to Adachi."I think so, but..." You start, glancing back to the body."I want pictures first. "He seems half sick as he glances over, then tosses your phone back to you. Looks like it got hung up in the commotion. You nod, walking over to the mess and taking a few pictures quickly as the slime evaporates. A retching noise from behind you makes it obvious what Adachi thinks of the situation.Picking up the makeshift club from before, you give the bones and remaining slime a poke. ...Nothing happens.>Write in
>>29518835Question Adachi."How did you come across it? Why did it attack you? Where were you?"Need to trace it back to a possible location. There might be more or there might be victims.Also, call Minako if she doesn't arrive in the meantime, let her know its settled but we might need her help in sweeping/investigating the area.
>>29518835Poke it more while waiting for minako
>>29518835Inspect some more, yeah. Ask Adachi what happened. Send a message to Minako saying the thing was dealt with.
>>29518881>>29519104voting a combination of those
Rolled 14rolling Sense Motive to see if he's a lying piece of shit
>>29519468"What do you think the first sets of rolls were for?"
>Question Adachi, otherYou shoot off a quick text to Minako, letting her know about how the thing was dealt with, then go back to poking the thing with your club. "How'd you find it, Adachi?" You ask when you hear a pause in the puking. "It... Came at me when I was going home from dinner." He says, still sounding ill. "Just jumped out of an alley and chased me."You glance back at the body as your phone rings. ...It's Dojima.That's right... You called him and handed it off to Adachi as this mess started... >Answer it?
>>29519939Answer it ourselves. Let him know we're fine.
>>29519939Let Adachi answer it
>>29519939Answer. "Hey, I'm fine. Ran into some trouble, though. Adachi's here with me."
>>29520064Changing my vote to answer it, and explain the situation to Dojima so we can avoid ties
>>29519939It doesn't really matter who answers it, as long as we keep an eye on Adachi
>>29519939Answer it our self and let him know that the situation is under control
>>29520206Stop being so paranoid.
>>29519939What does the slime smell like? As gross as they are, I can't imagine Adachi puking unless there was a smell to go with it.>>29520516unless he's faking it
>>29520516It's not paranoid to keep an eye on a suspect.
>Answer it"Hey uncle Ryo." You say in a calm tone, and hear a sigh of relief. ["Right. Where are you, Yu? Is it dealt with?"] Dojima asks. You think you can hear an engine faintly in the background...."Same place Adachi should have said. And yeah, I killed it." You shrug, looking back over to Adachi. He seems to have gone back to throwing up. "He's not feeling good, I think."You can hear Dojima sigh over the phone. ["I'll be there in a minute."] He says. ["We'll talk then."]The slime on the bones is still evaporating slowly, with only an odd, somewhat sweet smell coming from it.The phone clicks off, and you turn to face Adachi.....He's by a bush, wiping his mouth and looking to finally be done. >Write in
>>29520748Watch the corpse. See if it leaves anything solid like the mask or anything."Feeling better? You're a cop, don't you have a gun with you? Didn't use it on this thing?"
>>29520748"Wanna grab a bite to eat after this?"I don't know if this counts as trolling Adachi or trying to make him feel better.
>>29520601We have little to no reason to suspect him, you assmunch. >>29520748That was Tohruific
>>29520748see if Adachi is all right>>29520974those un-bear-able puns
>>29521062You'll just have to bear with it, I won't paws fur a second
>You're a cop, right?"Feeling better?" You ask, getting a nod as he looks over to the thing. "Scare you that much?""Yeah... "Adachi seems a bit ashamed."I... I realized how many times I coulda died." He says, somewhat wobbly. "I was helpless..."...You look on at him as he gets himself under control. "I mean, I shot it, and it did nothing! It just went through it and it hissed!" He continues, throwing his arms into the air. "And then you just showed that Stands are real and killed it!"...That's right. You DID describe your Persona as a Stand."So now I'm gonna resign myself to being the comic relief I guess, since it sounds like my boss is already in on this..." >Write in
>>29522293>Make bad pun>Wait for Minako and Dojima while explaining more about your stand
>>29522362Sure, this.I'd make a speech about how he's the protagonist of his own life, but I don't have it in me.
>>29522362This sounds fine.
>>29522293"He is and we actually were about to bring you in on this case too but I guess the case came to you first." Give him a pat to get him to dont mind it too much.
>Explain some, wait"Well, I guess you gave it a shot..." You grin, and get a groan from Adachi. "Yeah, but still... I don't want to be a secondary character..." He shakes his head, looking around. "I guess I could try and get a Stand like you have, though."...Better explain what it really is to him, then."Er... It isn't really a 'Stand'. It's called a Persona." You say after a second of thinking. "I said Stand because, hey, I thought you might be familiar with it."He nods. "So it's still a magic invisible ghost thingy, right?" "Yeah. I'm able to switch between three of them, at will, too." You shrug and walk over to the body, nudging it with the stick again. He seems to be thinking...>Write in
>>29523358Just come into to the TV with me later alright?No time for silly questions, better to see it for yourself
>>29523358do we tell him that he might be able to get one persona if he enter the tv?
>>29523358Tell him he can get his own Persona if he enters the TV world.
>>29523487>>29523519Nah, let him gain the fear of death first.Let him try a Invoker first.See how much he wants that power.
>>29523549I don't know about you, but I'm trying to get hm killed off plausibly.
>>29523558No. Fuck off
>>29523358Let him think as you wait for Minako and Dojima. No telling him anything.
>>29523549seems good, so tell him that there are ways for him to get a persona and later thy to have him use the eviker?>>29523558no anon we can get a new SL out of this
>>29523558Lets not. Not yet at least, IC wise, hes not done anything harmful yet. None at least that Yuu knows of.>>29523549Invoker sounds interesting. That guys likes guns after all.
>>29523358>"So it's still a magic invisible ghost thingy, right?"Wait, can he not see the Persona?
>>29523549Pic related>>29523640>He hasn't shown signs of being able to see it, aside from noticing it gathering electricity/fire. Maybe the bufus, too.
>>29523358>Try to loot the body for anything good
>>29523358... Check the body again. Anything on it?>curious oudinYes captcha.
>>29523613>Lets not. Not yet at least, IC wise, hes not done anything harmful yet. None at least that Yuu knows of.I know there's no IC reason to get him killed off. But there IS an IC reason to put him into a life or death situation, and that's almost as good.
>So, loot the body, then wait?>d20, if so.
Rolled 5>>29523929Why am I so great?
>WaitYou just shake your head. "Anyway, Dojima and someone who knows more about this sort of thing will be here soon." You say, glancing at the body again. >Search! 10!...A few minutes of relative silence pass as you shift around parts of the slime covering body with the stick, looking for anything that might be useful, and Minako arrives, looking out of breath, with wet hair, and like she had gotten dressed in a hurry."So. That's the thing you called about?" She asks, looking at the thing you're poking. For half a second, she glances over to Adachi, then shrugs. "Yeah. It went down to a few Bufus, but..." You nod. "It looks like... I don't even know what." She just shakes her head. "Got any idea?">Write in
Rolled 8>>29524138None at all, I was hoping you would.Sorry about interrupting your shower.
>>29524138It used to be covered with slime and fur. The ice seemed to hurt it more than lightning or fire. That help?
>>29524138let's tell her that it might be a Demon and if it was then we have some serious problem
>>29524532>we know what demons are.
>>29524695if memory serve me right Igor told us
>Maybe it's a demon?You shrug. "Well, ice seemed to hurt it the most, and I think it may have eaten the fire I shot at it. Lightning did some damage, though." You say, thinking back to your initial salvos, then to what Igor had said... "It might be a demon. A real one, I mean." You say after a second of silence. Minako's expression shifts. You can't quite tell what it is, but she stands still."A demon. Here." Her tone is flat as she looks at the body. One of the patches of fur finally evaporates fully, and you see the slime under it sink into the mess.....Seems like Minako is in thought now, too....>Write in
>>29524138>Show her the photo>Discuss the implications of monsters just up and appearing out of thin air and attacking civilians
>>29526020Do we know whether our father's research is related to this shit or not?Also mother's attempts to teach us mythology are getting kinda relevant now, I guess. Think about it?
>>29526073Wait WHAT. Think about the fact that your mother might be involved with this Persona shit. Call your mother and drop hints. ... also calling mother is a good idea in general
>Sorry guys, but my eyes are drifting closed here. >I'm gonna call it a night, but continue tomorrow. Twitter announcement is likely.
>about 10 minutes in-storyThis is the most amazing pacing I have ever seen.
>>29526200rest well Golden OP see you tomorrow
>>29526230We were in combat mode for most of it.If it was SOL, it'll be much faster.>>29526200Laters.
>>29526256Bleh, not combat, interrogation.
>>29526230Welcome to Persona Quest
>>29529105just keeping the thread alive
>>29526020"I'm just throwing out ideas. Could it be like... One of those creatures from another plane or something? Ectoplasm. I, uh. I read paranormal stuff."
>Show photosYou shrug, pulling out your phone and flipping to the pictures."Anyway, this is what it looked like just after I killed it." You say, holding it out to Minako.She looks at it carefully for a minute, before you hear an engine approaching. Looks like Dojima is here now too you think as you hear it stop, then a door slam shut."Hey uncle Ryo." You say, turning to see him approaching at a fast walk. "This is it."He glances down at the thing and shakes his head at the thing."What IS that even?" He asks.>A demon, probably>Don't know.>Write in
>>29534489Could be a demon. Could be anything, really. Definitely unnatural, though.
>>29534489"I'm not sure but iy mifht be a demon"
>>29534489Oh, hello again. Didn't realize it was running again.You should announce it on twitter.Could be a demon, could be anything else. We've got no real evidence either way. Also, explain to him what we learned about demons from Igor
>>29534489>A demon, probablyTrigger flashbacks, come on!
Why not pop into the Velvet Room and ask Igor? We have a photo to show him.
>>29534489>Probably a Demon. Uncle Ryo, I know it's late, but can you drop us off near [blacksmith's name I forgot]? I need to talk with my benefactor. Some of us can't use their Personae outside the TV World. I might be able to take you there, incase you want to meet him or ask him questions.I figure a detective would have a good Notice/Investigate skill, and may be able to scrutinize Igor's facial reactions.
>>29534489"... We should probably dispose of this crap somehow."
>>29536507This. We kinda need the others if we're going to check the mine.
>Demon. Probably."I'm not going to say it was a demon," You start, poking the body with the stick again. "But I think it may have been a demon."Dojima's expression changes to one of shock. "You...aren't joking, are you?" He asks, and you shake your head. "No., not really." You sigh. "From what I've learned, there are two kinds. a 'real' kind, and a kind formed from humanity's thoughts, I guess."You pause. "I can probably find out more if I ask... I guess the best term is 'the guy who's explained this stuff to me'?" You continue, getting a nod from Minako as she seems to finally have come out of her thoughts. "Yeah, we should probably ask Igor what's up with this." She says, handing your phone back to you....The street is silent for a moment."...We probably should clear this mess out, too." You say, looking at the slowly evaporating slime. Those bones aren't normal, and-...Is that a broken fang?>Write in
>>29537188May as well take it along. Teddie could do something with it, maybe? Or Takamaru.
>>29537188Gather up the remains and look for anything useful. Look around to see if anyone saw us, then take Minako home while discussing demons. Ask Dojima to take Adachi home while filling him in on the story so far, or not, whatever he deems the best course of action as Adachi is his guy.
>>29537188Take some tissue or a handkerchief and use it to pick up the fang. Examine it abit.Firstly before we look for an explaination from igor we need to make sure that there arent any others wandering the streets.Ask adachi to lead us to where he first encountered the slime.
>>29537188Take the fang. >I think the difference between a Shadow and Demon is that Demons appear in the 'normal' world. Shadows only in reflections of the real world?>Ryo, want to meet Igor or just wait outside?
>>29537479We don't need to introduce Dojima to Igor.If Igor wanted to meet him Igor would invite him. We've already brought in uninvited guests once and he wasn't exactly pleased
>>29537530Those were actual Persona candidates, though. People who already went in the TV World
>>29537564And so why would be bring in someone whose not even that involved?
>>29537188take the fang and go to Igor!
>>29537479Lets at least offer igor the courtesy of asking him about if first.
>So, take the fang, get Adachi to lead you to where he encountered the slime, then go to Igor?
>>29537762Take everything, we can't just leave the remains of a demon sitting out there.Otherwise yeah sure.
Should we call everyone else and warn them to be careful at night on the way there too?
>>29537357This.We can speak to igor later and we might find clues as to where it might have come from or entered this world from.
>>29537577Dojima can catch onto things, or ask things we didn't notice or think to ask?
>>29537762Yep.>>29537818Dont think they're out on the streets. If a gunshot hasnt alerted the neighbourhood to shit happening, let it be. We can tell them the full story tomorrow.
>>29537843No.It's not our place, it's not our world to bring in whoever we want. It's discourteous and rude. He's perfectly capable of inviting people he wants into there and it's not our place to do that for him.
>>29537762that's about right. only 1 person can enter the velvet room at a time, right?
>>29538032so Adachi and Dojima are just going to stare at Yuu and Minako daydream on the street?
>>29538082Sure. Dojima can brief Adachi while they both stare intently at us
>>29537910I don't think he"ll just invite them at this point, so it's moot. It's not really rude at all. I think you're overthinking it and just don't want him to go in for whatever reason. Maybe because he's an adult, IDK
>>29538117this is gonna be awkward...
>>29538171So don't invite them for him.And it is rude, we've done this before, and he was displeased about it, remember taking in Kanji and Yukiko (I think it was those two)? And that was with people he was planning on inviting himself, so why would you try to upset our near-omniscient guide by inviting people he clearly isn't going to invite himself?
I thought people disappeared when entering the Velvet Room? The party asked where we went the first time we entered.Also, what's Igor's motivation to do any of the things he does?
>>29541714He's Philemon's subordinate, who is a bit more optimistic about humanity. Whereas Nyarly would push events towards humanity getting fucked over.
Rolled 3>>29542731I wouldn't say that. Nyarly is for humanity fucking themselves over
>Take the fang, get Adachi to lead you to where he encountered the slimeYou lean over, picking up the fang and sticking it into a pocket. Dojima gives you a questioning look, but Minako just nods. "That felt like it might be important, right?" She asks. "Maybe. It stuck out to me, though." You say, just shaking your head. "Anyway, we probably should get this thing cleaned up.Dojima grunts in assent, and starts to head back to his car. "I think I have a few trash bags in the back." He says in a resigned tone. "We can put what we can into those, and maybe burn the rest?"It's not the worst idea......After a few minutes of work, you've managed to get the bones and a majority of the slime into a few bags Dojima retrieved, and have loaded them into the back.A glance over to Adachi shows that he's looking like normal for him, but a bit worried. "Hey." You start, catching his attention. "Mind leading me to where you first encountered it? There might be more out and if we can find them...""Oh, crap." Adachi's expression pales. "M-more of them?!"You nod, and his face goes white. "Yeah. Can you lead me to where it first appeared?""S-sure. Is, uh..." He seems to look over at Minako, like he's trying to remember her name. "She gonna come with us, too?" "Yeah I'll go with you two." Minako nods. "I'm Minako Arisato, by the way. With the Shadow Response Unit."Adachi's expression changes to one of surprise. (1/2)
>>29543375(2/2)"Wait, you mean that branch that's-""Been called a waste of funding by almost everyone? Yeah, that's us." Minako shakes her head. "We deal with supernatural stuff a lot, and since not many people are in the loop...."Adachi seems to get it, and you turn to face Dojima."Go on. I know I probably can't help against anything that shows up." He sighs. "I'll get this stuff somewhere out of the way, I guess."You give him a nod, thent turn to Adachi. "Alright then, lead the way."...A few minutes of walking, and you find yourself and your group in the shopping district, near one of the closed stores on the far end of it."Around here." Adachi says, pointing at an alleyway. "It lurched out, and I started to run.""Maybe there's something related to it in there?" He glances down the way nervously. >Write in
Rolled 15>>29543401"Got a flashlight? I'll check it out, you two stay here. I'll call out if its clear."
>>29543401TONIGHT...YOU...CHECK IT OUT.
Rolled 15>>29543524why not
>Check it out"I'll give you two the all clear." You crick your neck and start down the alley carefully. Keeping Izanagi ready to summon, you make your way around the few trash cans sitting there. Near the middle of it, you see several bits of damaged trash sitting around... And what appears to be a circle drawn on the groundLooking back, you wave Adachi and Minako over, clearing things out so you can get a better look at it....It's a circle alright. Drawn in what appears to be a chalk, there's a few scribbles by it, and some drops of slime around it.
>As much as I hate to do it,calling it a thread now. >I'll probably run something again on Sunday or Monday.
take more photos for the photo-goddocument all supernatural things with cold hard evidence
>>29548506I hope that chalk is specially made/enchanted, otherwise we're going to be drowning in demons very quickly.
>>29550929Probably, yeah. And if it's made with special enchantments, there's probably some society, a cult, that produced it. And that cult may originate in TokyoIT BEGINS
