Persona Quest, True Reincarnation Mode>Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Persona%20Quest%20Golden>Thread 24 (Lost to pruning)http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/28536030/#28536030>Twitter: https://twitter.com/P4GoldenOP>Character Sheet: http://pastebin.com/txQXezA5>Rolls and Persona QuestWhen I call for a roll, I'll select the highest of the first three (now four, due to a perk) rolls made in response to the post calling for it. Natural 1's and natural 20's within the first five rolls count as critical failures or successes, and override the first three roll rule. Natural 1's and 20's negate each other. Only rolls linked to the post asking for them count, unless they are acting as corrections to misrolls that are linked to the proper post.>CurrentlyThe two of you walk for a bit, making small talk, before you recall those bone white cards...Maybe another Fool card wouldn't hurt..."Hey, Adachi... Willing to help me out?" You ask, reaching into your jacket pocket and taking one of the few you have with you out."Sure. Want me to try something with that, or...?" He seems a little confused at its appearance, but nods."Just hang onto it for a bit." You hand it to him. "It's either going to give you a Persona, or turn into something attuned to you that could help me make a new one.""Yeah, sure, why not." He shrugs, but puts it in his jacket pocket with a grin. "Can't hurt anything, right?"After a few more steps, his face falls.A glance around shows nothing really out of the ordinary.Just an old lady with a cheerful expression walking towards the two of you....>Greet her politely>Cover for Adachi>Run with him>Write in>You have Experience available to spend! >General XP: 639>New Perk available to purchase!

>>31063163>Magic rank 2Persona focus go!Also, let's be actually competent at something for once.
So, when are we going to go on a date with Minako?We haven't done anything with her in while.
>Cover for Adachi "...Adachi, I'll cover you." You say, glancing over to him. He doesn't seem like he wants to deal with this old lady, does he?"Don't have to tell me twice." He says, turning and moving at a slightly faster pace than, probably for an alley or something.There's a second as you glance back, and... It seems that the old woman has made it to you in that brief moment. "Oh, where did little Tohru go?" She asks, looking at you. "Did he have to head back to the station again?" ...May as well go with that. "Yes ma'am. He got a call and needed to go." You nod."I hope he isn't working himself too hard... The boy always seems to be running off to the station every time I see him..." She sighs. "Well, thank you for letting me know." She says, turning and shuffling away. ...After a few minutes, you eventually find Adachi a few streets over, looking around nervously.He catches sight of you, and waves, looking somewhat relieved. >So, what's with the old woman?>Go back to your conversation>Write in
>Sorry about vanishing, I, uh... Got a little off track.
>>31067981>Who's the oldie?
>>31067981>So, what's with the old woman?
>>31067981>>So, what's with the old woman?
>So, confirming for XP use: Buy a rank in Magic, Cooking, and Heavy Blades, save the rest?
>>31067981>>Write in"Nice to see old ladies scare you more than slime-demons"
>>31068573I'd rather pass on Heavy Blades.We gotta get Investigate SOMETIME
>>31068573>>31068655we can't even buy Investigate for the time being. and we're going to fight at one point might as well get Cleave.
>>31069024We've got magic. It'll be alright...right?
>Ask about the old woman"So, why were you running from her?" You ask. Adachi seems to freeze. "I mean, she can't be worse than, well.. That slime demon."He lets out a loud sigh. "Her son has the same name as me." He says, shaking his head. "So she's been popping up every once in a while since I introduced myself." "And she's been bringing nimono down to the station, too..." Adachi shrugs. "I guess she's just lonely, or something.""She probably cares about you, you know." You say, getting a sighing nod from Adachi. "So humor her a bit.""I guess... It's just... She's acting the opposite of how my parents did. I just can't get that kinda person." He shakes his head, before grinning. "Besides, she's making me feel old. I'm too young to be someone that age's kid." "Anyway, I probably should get back." Adachi says after a few moments of silent walking. "Gotta get this stuff cookin', after all.">You can feel a bond strengthen...>Head home >Drop off vegetables, then head out somewhere else>Write in>Sheet updated

Ohboy a p4 threadOh wait. ded
>>31074210C-can I suggest cooking for Adachi-san?
>>31078549We should cook something nice for him with whatever he has in stock.
>>31078901Cabbage rolls are awesome, and don't need much ingredients, I don't think
Fuck me. I wish I knew you were running. Cooking? Spending EXP on Cooking? Come on. That's one skill that we can let entirely go off skill XP.Heavy Blade, Magic, Investigate, Notice and Athletics? Not so much. Those are needed for the plot and to survive in TRM.
>>31070026What does Awakened 2 do? Please don't tell me it increases the dice or crit range.
>>31079425That's for me to know, and you to find out. >It's more of a general buff, thoughAnyway, sorry about vanishing for so damn long. Fell asleep after I ate, then was busy most of the day.
>Go see about MinakoYou say your goodbyes to Adachi and return home, dropping off your purchases fairly quickly. A texted conversation with Minako says she's got the day off, and that she's feeding strays again.After a bit of walking, you wind up in the lot behind the shrine, where Minako is...Petting a fox wearing an apron? "Ah, hey there." She says, noticing you, and your confusion at the fox. "I think she's living in the shrine.""...Then is she the thing I've been getting a feeling was watching me when I go by?" There's a yip, and you see the fox nod. Okay then. "You'd be surprised at how some animals are. I know for a fact that there's a dog with a Persona..." Minako trails off, as the fox gets up and disappears into the bushes. "Anyway, you wanted to talk with me?">Write in
>>31082918Hang out with Minako and ask about the fox.
>>31082918Hang out with our grill.>mfw
>>31082918Maybe ask about that equipment she picked up? We probably should go test it in the TV world...
>>31082918Ask about shadows, relationships, and the fox.
>>31082918>Not really. Just wanted to hang out.
>>31086398Yup, this.I think we're kinda tapped out on work related stuff.
>>31086398Hang out with Minako-chan! She needs some loving! And hugs! Lots of hugs!
>Hang out"Not really." You shrug. "Just wanted to spend time talking, since we haven't really." "Yeah, I get you. If you know your friends better, you can probably guess what they'll do better." She nods. "You're kinda an open book, so I guess I should share a little bit first." "Well... Let's see... I've got about two dozen hobbies, mostly picked up in a few months of high school.." She rubs her chin. "They're stuff like javelin throwing, cooking, kendo, animal care... That stuff.""Yeah, I'm not too far behind that myself." You nod. "Though I've been neglecting my model building a lot since I got here..."The two of you talked for a few hours about hobbies and work, before you noticed your stomach growling... And after a moment, Minako's joined the grumbling... "So, uh.... Guess we should get lunch?" She asks, rubbing the back of her head in embarrassment. "Want to go get some somewhere?">Sure, how about Junes?>Well, Aiya's around the block...>There's always Souzai Daigaku...Blame the delay on trying to lead to a conversation and failing.
>>31090254>>There's always Souzai Daigaku...

>>31091126>Aiya's a Chinese diner. Daigaku is a walk-up place, which admittedly has damn good steak.
>>31091248Well, it's not like this is a date anyways
>>31091248So Aiya is a nice place for a sit down meal?
>>31091311>Yes, since I got distracted.

>>31092759See you in five hours
>>31092759>Yeah, I am. >Since I'm trying to figure a leeettlllee bit out.
>Aiya"There's always the diner." You shrug. Minako seems to think about it for a moment, then nods. "Why not." She says, shaking her head. "Let's go." After a short walk, the two of you wind up at Aiya, and head inside.Ordering, the two of you grab a table, and you pick up your food fairly soon..... It's good, as usual. Minako seems satisfied with it, as well.About halfway through your meal, you glance to the opening door, catching sight of... Kou? He seems to notice you, and waves, walking up."Ah, hey Narukami." He says, before shooting a glance over at Minako. "Say, those rumors..."You sigh, and shake your head. He seems to get it, and nods. "Anyway, hello there, miss... Uh...?" Kou pauses, before extending his hand. "Well, whatever. I'm Kou Ichijo. Nice to meet you.""Minako Arisato." She replies, shaking his hand and grinning. "And rumors?"...He glances briefly at you "Just some stuff floating around at school. Mostly that Narukami here is trying to build a harem or something, given that he's been being seen around Amagi, Satonaka , and you..." He trails off, before shrugging with a grin. "He doesn't seem like the right sort for that, though.""Oh~?" There's a moment as Minako smirks mischievously. "Well, I suppose I wouldn't really mind a couple of others..."...He seems to buy it, before Minako laughs. "But no, nothing going on. I asked for his help with a side project I'm working on, since he was interested in it." She says, watching the expression on Kou's face. "We're just taking a break from taking care of the strays around town to grab lunch.""Ahhhhhh..." He seems to be thinking about that. "So you two are why they've been looking healthier these last couple of weeks, huh?"Minako nods, and you go with it."Alright, then. Mind if I sit with you two to eat, then? Running worked up an appetite." Two shrugs of assent later, Kou's making an order as you and Minako resume your idle conversation. (1/2)
(2/2)After another while, the now-three of you are finishing up, when a teenage girl in a red apron walks up to your table, looking at you carefully. "So, how's your work going, Miss Arisato?" She asks, turning to Minako. "Pretty good, Nakamura. Business is booming as usual, and my hobby is getting lighter again after the winter." She seems cheery, and familiar. "I'm sure you already know Ichijo here, but this is Yu Narukami. He's been helping out with my work." The girl nods, before turning to you. "Aika Nakamura. I run deliveries for Aiya." She says, giving a short bow. "I'm at Yasogami, too. Second year, class C." >How do you respond?
Crashing now, I'm sorry to say. I'll continue again when I get up, hopefully at a more reasonable time. >And yes, I'm using all the things.
>>31094897Not playing P4 is really biting me in the ass now.Did we ever make the calling card with blank card combo?>bow as well>switch persona to match if possible>greetreally just trying to show off to Minako
>>31094897Hello, nice to meet you
>>31095960>Did we ever make the calling card with blank card combo?Why would we?
>>31094897Bow and greet her as well.And offer our hand for to shake.
>>31094897Greet her and offer a hand shake
>>31095960I see nothing requiring extensive P4 knowledge here, and honestly, you didn't miss much
>>31096629Make sure to give Kou a blank card
>>31096712Let stop with all the card giving.We're not a salaryman or in any position of importance. Theres no reason to keep handing out cards like this.
>>31096734People want new Personas, whatchagonnado
>>31094897Greet her. It'd be weird to get up just to bow, especially as a customer. Then ask about any specials.
>>31096712No. There's nothing dumber than giving blank cards to people with no involvement in the shit that's going on. It made sense to give it to Ryo, Adachi & the Investigation Team since they are.
>>31096888Didn't we give one to Marie?Anyway, I agree with you in general, but the way this system works we're supposed to give them to all SL people we know
>>31096902>but the way this system works we're supposed to give them to all SL people we knowNo, and no. GoldenOP never said "we're supposed to give them to all SL people we know". I can't believe you're defending what has to be the dumbest kind of metagaming.
>>31096888>>31096902Shit's going down, though. Wouldn't it be better if there was a possibility that our friends could defend themselves if they're ever put in a life-threatening situation?I mean, suppose Kou gets attacked by a demon when he doesn't have a card... He'd probably die. If he was in possession of a card in said situation, then there's at least the possibility that he'd get a Persona.It'd be nice if we had insurance for Dojima too.
>>31096926Yes he didWe give blanks to people to get back personae. Obviously those personae will have same Arcana as the people we give them to, ergo for example if we want Strength persona, we must give it to KouI didn't write this system, it just how it works
>>31096932GoldenOP never said having a blank card or persona card can automatically give someone a persona, and we all know the reason we have blank cards anyway isn't to spread persona usage. It's to get new personae. >>31096941Okay. Please show me the quote where he said we have to give them to everyone we form a social link with.
>>31096957Wasn't giving Yukiko a blank card the reason she has a Persona without having to face her Shadow Self? I think it's the same with Kanji.
>>31096957Please read the post againHe didn't say it explicitly, but he designed the system in a way that forces us to do it
>>31096971We didn't have blanks until after at least Yukiko got her persona
>>31096971No.>>31096972He never said it, period. You're making shit up. First he never said it, and now you're supposedly reading into his intentions because you can't give a quote? GoldenOP never said we have to give everyone we talk to a blank card like some metagaming idiot. This is one of the few quests that hasn't gone to shit because of it's low traffic compared to quests like PGQ.
>>31096978It wasn't us who gave Yukiko the blank card, but she DID have one. Teddy gave it to her.Exact quote: > "Huh." You say, looking at Yukiko. "Wouldn't have expected those to work."> She smiles, Konohana Sakura doing a twirl. > "Neither did I. But I felt the card Teddie gave me pulsing, so..."
>>31097010PGQ has nothing to do with anythingGOP designed the system for it, obviously it's his intention for us to give cards to peopleNo metagame either, since it was explained by Igor
>>31097041No he didn't. Go jerk off about your cards elsewhere
>>31097182> I am losing the argument and therefore going to resort to ad hominemsI thought /tg/ was supposed to be the intelligent board?
>>31097192I'm not him. I just want to stop seeing you asking to give fucking everyone a blank card. Other guy probably stopped trying
>>31097041Giving cards to people =/= giving cards to everyone.
>>31097363I never tried giving people blanks and I think it's stupid, but that's what the system suggests to do
>>31097423>>31097192>>31097041>>31096972Don't try to presume what the "right" thing to do is based off the mechanics.Yes, we can give cards to everyone. It leads to us getting the most personae, and possibly more fighters, but:1) we don't know if having a persona or just the card attracts shadows2) people who "awaken" are generally in more danger, unless they're already constantly in danger, like Ryo and Adachi.There are pros and cons. It is an option, but not automatically the "best" option.Honestly, I think we should give more cards, but if others don't want to, I'm cool with that.
>>31097473I'm not saying it's the right thing to do, I'm only saying that if people want it, mechanics justify it. It's definately can't be "wrong" thing to do, even though it might be a "stupid" one
>>31097510...okay, that doesn't sound the same as what you said earlier.I'll assume everyone just needs to take a chill pill and calm down.
>>31097510It's justified in the same way Yu can Zio everyone he sees. Nothing stopping us from mechanically doing it!
>>31097533They might be the murderer too, even more reason
>>31097510No. Mechanics being present mean it is a thing that can be done.What make it 'right' or 'wrong' depends on who it is being applied to.Giving it to someone uninvolved and dragging them into the conflict would be morally wrong and honestly I cant see Yuu doing something like that just for another fighter.
>>31097533>>31097546Except giving cards just makes us a weirdo, not an asshole or a murderer
>>31097547getting more personas is a debatable reason though. It's unclear how dangerous simply holding a card is.
>>31097547Oh yeah, definately, dragging more people into this mess is bad, but giving out cards doesn't necessarily mean that.We should really find out about implications, but considering that so far it's the only way we get personas, I won't be surprised if GOP would outright handwave them away
>>31097561I'd rather not play an autistic MC either.
>>31097603We can bargain with them too. In fact, why not ask minako, she had several and experience. After our not-date though
>>31097696As an officer of a division that hides its activities while solving these type of cases; I can't see her condoning bringing in unrelated people unless absolutely necessary.
>>31098044OTHER PEOPLE. SOCIAL LINK PEOPLE. The Investigation Team actually also counts, but they're way too deep in already. Pretty sure Ryo and Minako don't want MORE people in this mess.
>>31098102Oh right, misunderstood. I meant asking about how she got multiple persona
>>31098115Fusion and taking personae from the book as MC gathered some by killing shadows.
>>31098407To think that if GOP allowed us to get personae via shadow killing we wouldn't have this argumentI get a feeling he doesn't really know where to take his quest
>>31098674There's still demon negotiation, which should be fun when it finally happens.On another note, I hope rise comes soon.
>I go do a few errands after waking up, and I come back to this. >Allow me to clarify: You aren't getting Persona out of the Shadows you fight, because....>They're too damn weak, and the few boss-type Shadows you've fought have been False, someone who tamed them, or Aspects of [REDACTED] possessing [REDACTED]. Attempting to negotiate with the Slimberus would have failed, since it was, y'know, berserk and trying to kill the biggest threat to its freedom and life, but you got a way to summon a new Persona from it. .>The card handing out, yeah, may be getting a little overboard at the moment. My own fault for having explained it like that, honestly. >But, it plays no part in the whole "Awakening" thing, except maybe as a slight aid.>Yukiko and Kanji shortcutted to their Personas in a way that's fairly traditional- being in that sort of situation would have provoked it, but the card sort of... Eased it along. Not to mention the added bonus that was floating around. >Now, if you excuse me, I'm gonna be writing. >"Politely return the greeting/shake hand" is what I'm going with, since it seems to fit the responses
>>31099724>>"Politely return the greeting/shake hand"
>Greet, handshakeYou nod, extending your hand in a shake. "As miss Arisato said, Yu Narukami. Class B, here." You smile. "Pleased to meet you."Her grip is firm, and the handshake ends fairly quickly."Good to meet you too." Aika says, before shrugging. "Anyway, I'd better get back to work. See you around." She gives you a short wave, and approaches the counter again, seemingly to pick up some orders..."Nakamura's really amazing." Kou says, glancing over to her. "I mean, she delivers anywhere. I've heard some students who were on a trip into the mountains ordered, and she somehow got to them."You file that away for later, and get ready to head out....You and Minako part ways with Kou shortly after leaving the diner, and wind up walking over towards the Flood Plain, talking more about the likes and dislikes of the both of you... (1/2)
>>31103365(2/2)"..And... I guess I really don't like to say 'goodbye' to friends or people I care about." She finishes, as the two of you get to the now-familiar table. "Probably because of how often it's gone bad, I guess..." You give her an odd look, and she sighs. "One of my clear memories as a kid is saying goodbye to my uncle and aunt after they made a trip to visit my parents and me." Minako shakes her haid sadly. "They died in an accident on the way back.""Then, two years ago, that friend of mine almost died, and then -he- did die, both after I said goodbye..." She trails off. "I mean, I know that it's not always going to end like that, but... "..."Yeah, those things happen." You start, after a few moments of silence. "I guess the association of saying goodbye and death is easy to make.""But isn't it also something like a new beginning?" You shrug. "I mean, hope for something new, a new 'hello' to be said, and all that."....The two of you are silent for a bit, before Minako sighs loudly. >You can feel a bond strengthen..."Thanks, Narukami. You've given me some stuff to think about." She says, standing up. "I'll see you around, then. That equipment still needs to get set up, after all."You nod. "We should probably meet up to test it sometime this week, anyway. Never know when something might happen." You say. "Anyway, later then."...The two of you part ways.It's now mid-afternoon... >What do you do?>Sheet updated

>Meet with the foxYou stretch, before heading back to the shrine to look for the fox. ...After about a half hour of searching, all you've found is an ema with a request for something to cure an old man's hurting knees, along with what appears to be a crudely tied bundle of leaves. As you were getting leaving the shrine area, though, an achy looking old man stopped you, and took the leaves, claiming they were an ache remedy that his grandmother always recommended to clear up pains. ...You handed him the small bundle of leaves and moved on, the old man cheerfully and spryly walking into the shrine after applying a leaf to his leg. Making your way to Junes, you glance around the electronics department, making sure the coast is clear before hopping into the usual TV. .....You fall through the twisting... Whatever, eventually landing feet first on that platform... That Shadow of 'yours' is lounging around, reading one of the manga you brought him, while Teddie is off a bit, playing with something you can't quite make out.The fog seems thicker today than most others, actually... "Yo." The Shadow says, giving you a short wave. "Came by for a talk, or just to check in?" >Just checking in. How are you two doing?>Yeah, I was just planning to check in. This fog is odd...>Actually, I did want to talk... How's the name coming, and how are you doing?>Write in

>>31107173>Sunday, May 15h, 2011.
>So, combine 2 and 3?
>This fog is odd...>How's the name coming along?"Yeah, I was just here to check in," You start, looking around again. The fog really seems... Off. More potent than usual, you guess. Your gut is telling you that you'll be fine, but you can't help but wonder what would happen if someone else got lost in here... "Well, this fog."The Shadow nods. "Yeah, it's been getting more and more like this for a few days." He says, glancing around. "Too damn thick to see though, but other than that, pretty reasonable.""'course, I don't know how a normal human would handle it..." He seems to be looking at you oddly. "Ah, whatever. The bear found something to play with, anyway."Odd... If it's been increasing over the past few days...The Shadow seems to shrug. Looks like he's got about as much of a clue as you do...There's silence for a minute as he flips through his book...."So, decide on a name yet?" You ask, looking over to him. The thumbs up you receive is surprising. .."Call me Souji Seta now." He says with a grin. "I liked the way it worked out, after all."You nod. Best to pass that along to the->You can feel a bond strengthen...-others...Okay, now that's nowhere near the amount of talking you'd expect...Glancing at the Sha- Seta- , you see him shrug. "What? I heard that cracking noise just now, and you zoned out for a sec, before looking surprised.." He says. "Figured it was something odd."What.>What. >...I'm just going to ignore this for now. I'll be talking to Teddie.>How did you..? Is this because you're sorta my Shadow?>Write in>Sheet updated
>>31108170>How did you..? Is this because you're sorta my Shadow?>Cracking noise? It was a Social Link
>>31108242You think the words SOCIAL LINK just appear to him or something?
>>31108287Maybe. He heard a cracking noise, which was weird. And then saw we spaced out. The cracking may mean he broke himself free.
>How did you..? Is this because you're sorta my Shadow?>Cracking noise? It was a Social LinkYou look at Seta incredulously."...That was the sound of a Social Link..." You say, shaking your head. "But what I'm wondering is 'How did you hear it?'..."He shrugs again. "I dunno. Just heard the noise and saw you zone out." He says. "Anyway, we cool now? Nothing else to talk about?" Taking your still stunned silence as a 'yes', he goes back to reading. "No. seriously." You say, catching his attention after a moment. "Any ideas why you heard it? I mean, it might be because you're 'my' Shadow, but... I doubt that's it..."He pauses for a second, then looks at you."Nah, that's probably exactly why. I'm him, he's me. And you're him, but he's not you. So I... Guess you're me, but I'm not you?" He shrugs. "Basically, I guess I heard it because Yu heard it, or something."You sigh at the cryptic statement, again. He's probably not going to give you any more useful answers... >Go talk to the bear>Write in

About these p4 quest threads, does it follow the main story of p4g or is it much more freeform? My first time playing that game was unforgettable, but I don't really want to do a text-based version.
>>31115587This quest's plot has barely anything to do with P4's plot
>>31115587It went off the rails in thread 1.Someone, probably Mitsuo Kubo, summoned the goddamn Joker. Or JOKER.
We've got a CLONE of ourselves, guys. How did making out with our clone not even begin to cross our minds?
>>31118059too busy oogling Minako and sewing
Popping in to say that I didn't abandon you folks. I dozed off mid-update, and then needed to get sone sleep before work.I'll finish it up when I get done here.
>>31118142Well, let it cross our mind now. We're japanese! We should have seen enough anime to know where having a clone is going!Best case scenario, Seta/Minako/Yu threesome
>>31118360>letting someone touch our waifuTake your cuckold shit elsewhere anon.
>>31118387> That someone is yourself.It's like you can't into shadows
>>31118360>>31118360Best case scenario is bad and I refuse
>>31118059Don't ever joke about doing stupid shit in a quest, because you"ll have a storm of people lapping it up.
>>31118510No, shadows are not. They have separate identities. Yu's shadow is especially not him.
>>31114752>>31118347just keeping the thread alive until op returns
>>31120975They are. Did you even play p4? Or even p2?
>>31124175Them being a part of a person does not mean that they are that person.
So where does the Souji Seta name come in again? IIRC that was the "canon" name of the protagonist in P4. But then they had to get a new one because of the anime, or something to that effect.
>>31131720Souji Seta was from the semi-canon manga.The anime and Persona 4 Arena canonized Yu Narukami.
Remind me again why we aren't going for Nanako route?
>>31131732Oh yeah, I think I remember now. They had to canonize a name because they couldn't trademark it otherwise.Also fuck these number captchas. I can touch type just fine, but I can't use the number keys for shit because I never need them for anything but this.
>>31131777Because Nanako is pure imouto whose life is hard enough as it is.We will restore the sanctity of this family.
>>31131777because Minako is a superior waifu
>>31131777Because you're the only lolicon. But, there was a split over Chie v. Minako, and people agreed to go with Minako over nobody because of a divided playerbase.
>>31133974I'm generally gunning for UNLIMITED POWER, and considering that Minako has plenty of experience, she's the better option for now.
Shouldn't some XP be dropped in Investigation? We suck HARD at it. Staying alive is great and all but it's pointless if you aren't unraveling mysteries.
>>31135496If you looked above, I was already suggesting that
>>31135496>We suck HARD at itI don't remember invistigating anything ever or rolling for it
>>31135699The skills ranks are more for narrative than rolls. Also it could be that we lack the minimum to make competent rolls related to the skill.
>>31135496Xp from skill usage goes to its own skill until you hit level 2. We're just at the point to get discretionary xp for distribution as and how we want.
>Go talk to the beerYou sigh, shaking your head as you walk away from Seta. Teddie's over to the side of the platform, playing with-...Is that the fox from the shrine?The animal yips, and runs over to you, sniffing your leg, before circling you appraisingly. Finally stopping, it nods and yips. It seems the fox appro->You can feel a new bond formingOkay then. You made a Social Link... With a fox.She yips, running slightly into the fog for a moment. "Hi there, Sensei! Fluffipines seems to like you!" Teddie says, standing up and wobbling over to you. "Teddie... I don't think her name is that." You sigh, "That's just kind of insulting to the shrine, anyway.""She lives at a shrine?" Teddie seems surprised and interested..."At least near one." You shrug. "I think she-"There's another yip, and you see the fox return, a few of those leaves from earlier tucked in its apron....From her approach, it seems she wants you to take these, for some reason. "So, are you...Thanking me for something?" You ask, looking at the fox. She yips again, nodding, then moves and scratches your knees.Oh."For completing the ema for you?" The fox nods enthusiastically, and you take the leaves, putting them with that red stone."Oh, yeah, sensei!" Teddie says, catching your attention again. "I've been smelling a couple of powerful Shadows for the last few days. They're hiding around the town, but I'm not sure -where-..." "Thanks for telling me, Teddie." You say, nodding. ...Was there something else you wanted ask about?>How's he doing?>Anything else odd?>How's 'Seta' treating you?>Write in>Sheet updated
