January 1- 17:30// 50ºCYour name is Nobuyuki Hayashi, exchange student from Japan residing in Spain, and Demon Summoner. That last one since today- when you woke up with a bad hangover and a strange app on your phone, the sun shining in the sky despite it being impossible at that hour, and the temperature slowly raising. You met up with your friend Daiki after getting up, and together you saved your other friend, Keiko Akiyama, from the demons summoned by the app from her- and your- phones, making a contract with them, and getting plunged headfirst into this confusing mess, trying to make sense of what looks to be the end of the world.An hour ago, you decided to try raiding the nearest shopping mall, since its location would mean it was more likely to have unspoiled supplies- and were ambushed by some sort of strange creature that was using the food as bait to draw in unsuspecting humans, kill them, then add them to itself. You finished off this creature, and are now trying to exit the mall..."Jack Bros! We´re leaving!" You shout as you pass by the toy section of the mall- Perhaps that´s where they went?-"Oh, already-hee? Wait, what happened to you guys-hoo?"Did they really hear NOTHING from your battle? Now that you think about it, they also weren´t there for the battle on the parking ground... That´s weird. Did they just rush ahead? They seem innocent enough, but you just can´t shake the feeling there´s something wrong in all this...>We ran into a fucking huge demon. Where were you guys?>We ran into something really weird.>Let´s get out of here before we do any explaining>Stare at them blankly.-----Also, before i forget... New stats!STR:5MAG:8VIT:5AGI:4
>>1393730>We ran into a fucking huge demon. Where were you guys?
Oh boy."We ran into a fucking huge zombie demon, where were you two?"" Well-hee, we kind of got sidetracked-hoo..." Mutters Frost"Do i want to know with what...?""Well, Frost kind of dragged-hee me in here-hoo.""What for?""Said-hee wanted to see if the arcade was still working-hoo""...But there´s no electricity""Just in hee-case"Oh god you got stuck with the retarded ice demon didn´t you.>Whatever, let´s get out of here>Well, we could use Pixie´s lightning magic, if we had some SP...>Any clue what that thing we fought was?>Other:Write-in?
>>1393767>Whatever, let´s get out of here>Any clue what that thing we fought was?
>>1393767>Well, we could use Pixie´s lightning magic, if we had some SP...
>>1393767>>Whatever, let´s get out of here>Any clue what that thing we fought was?
"...Whatever, let´s just get out of here before we get eaten by demons or something. Any clue what that thing we fought was?"Pyro Jack looks at your for a second, thinking about what you said about the creature- " It was a zombie-hee, yes? Anything else about it?" "Yeah, it was a mass of corpses, they were using the food as bait, and when we went in, they started...fusing together. Really tough to damage with physical attacks, seemed weak to fire. Could´ve used your help back there""Sorry-hoo. You´ve seen how my brother-hee is""Yeah, I guess... Any clue?""Doesn´t hee-sound like a normal demon-hoo. Maybe something artificial-hoo? Work of some-hee sort of necromancer?""Artifical? You mean someone actually made that thing and put it there to kill people and grow?" You shiver- even with all this heat... Pyro Jack shrugs."That has some... disturbing implications, guys""Can we not discuss this here? I´m not feeling so great with all this heat..."Keiko´s right... it´s gotten much, much hotter since you came down here, and while Jack Frost´s magic should keep you alive for a while, you don´t know how much longer you can last in here...Where even could you go?>Back to the library. It won´t be much colder, but it´s something...>Risk it and go towards the Church on the way to your home- you have a feeling there might be something there...>Go down into the parking lot. Since the sun isn´t hitting the underground areas, it should be colder there.>Other:Write-in?
>>1393821>Go down into the parking lot. Since the sun isn´t hitting the underground areas, it should be colder there.
>>1393825>Go down into the parking lot. Since the sun isn´t hitting the underground areas, it should be colder there.
>>1393821>>Risk it and go towards the Church on the way to your home- you have a feeling there might be something there...Hmm... idk, I feel as though the parking garage would act like an oven. It's all stone, so it's gonna just keep absorbing heat.
>>1393821>>Go down into the parking lot. Since the sun isn´t hitting the underground areas, it should be colder there.
You decide that going down into the parking lot, even in the dark, is better that getting fried like an egg out here- You rush into the parking lot under the intense heat...Though, if the sun keeps getting hotter, there´s no other exit to the parking lot, so you´d be trapped there if it doesn´t stop...Go into the parking lot?>y>n
>>1393903>yIf the sun keeps getting hotter we are fucked anyways
>>1393903> yY'know, I wonder if there's a particular demon causing the heat and after it's killed the heat would stop.
So what's the plan if it turns out the sun doesn't stop
>>1393926Pretty sure the heat is coming from the sun in the sky that hasn't moved.>>1393935Die? Like we need a window of cooling to not just die. Maybe go to the subway since that is the deepest part.
>>1393937You mean the subway that was supposedly never built and is past the church?
>>1393945Yeah that one, even if it was still under construction that is as deep in the earth as we are gonna get and let us travel around the city without going in the sun.
You enter the dark parking lot, the refreshing shade eliciting a weary sigh from your team- Damm, the sun keeps getting hotter and hotter- you just hope it´ll stop. At least you have some food in here.1 January- 17:30 // 60ºCThe sun doesn´t seem to have any intention of slowing down...1 January- 18:00//70 ºCYou go deeper into the parking lot- It´s getting hot down here, outside must be unbearable... Pyro Jack and Jack Frost stay here, but you can tell it´s only because they´re afraid to go outside right now- Even them seem to be sweating bullets...1 January-18:00// 0ºC...The heat seems to have gone down... considerably?"...Guys, did it stop?" Asks Daiki, in disbelief- Can it really be...?"It´s colder-hoo! We can go hee-out now!"" Thank God, i thought we would die down here! Though... it kinda feels cold now. Maybe it´s just the difference in temperature?"It does seem to have cooled down very quickly...>Go out and investigate>Stay here a while longer
>>1393957>Go out and investigate
>>1393957>>Go out and investigate
>Go out and investigateAlthough a sudden change to fucking freezing temperature is probably indicative of something horrible I will allow curiosity to get the better of me.
>>1393972It is indicative of something, if you know physics...What happens when you heat something a lot, and then cool it down quickly?
"I´m going out to investigate... You guys coming?""Are you kidding? Of course i´m going, i don´t want to stay down here in the dark..."" I´m not afraid of it but i´ll say i´m curious, man.""...Sure, weren´t you the one who was afraid of the dark a couple ye-"" Be very careful with what you´re about to say, Daiki. Be very careful"You walk out from the parking lot, and come out under a darkened sky- Is it... is it finally nightime? But- the time´s still all wrong! And there was no time between day and night at all- wait a second.The Sun is still there. There´s just something in the way- an eclipse?1 January- 18:05//-5ºCSuddenly, from behind- no, bellow... you hear a loud cracking noise.>Run for it>FUCKING RUN>What was that noise?(Also, please roll 1d100)
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>1394000>>What was that noise?
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>1394000>Run for it
>>1394003Senpai could it possibly be anything we want to stick around and gawk at
>>1394007Don't forget to roll, we need it.
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>1394015What, do you want another 26 that badly?Anyways my vote is for running.
>>1394019oh good i don´t need to write a BAD END today.
>>1394023Don't be too sure.
Well, that can´t be good."RUN!"You sprint towards the exit of the parking lot, noticing the cracks appearing on the walls- Since the temperature was so damm high outside, and it declined so sharply, it must be causing the rigid walls to contract forcefully after expanding from the heat- and breaking them! If you had stayed down there, it might have just come crashing down-A huge crashing sound and a terrible shaking of the ground bring you to your knees in the middle of the road. God, that was close- you look back- your group has managed to make it out mostly unscathed- though it seems Keiko got hit by a flying shard of rock from one of the walls collapsing, it doesn´t seem serious- at least nothing that magic can´t heal. God, this is surreal... It hasn´t even been a full day yet since you woke up- or at least, you think it hasn´t. Your phone still says it is January first, but it feels like it´s taking forever...January 1rst- 18:15//-10ºCThe air is cold. Very cold, in fact- if this is anything like the sun and the heat from before- and you won´t know how long this will last... You need to find somewhere to say very quickly-but if the sun goes back to being absurdly hot right after, what is a good shelter right now would be terrible then...>Go to the Church>Try and risk it, go to "El Solarón", where the metro was supposed to be built-You get a feeling it´s somehow related to all this...Though you can´t quite guess why.>Go to the bullfighting arena.>Other:Write-in?((Not sure if i can stay much longer tonight, but i´ll try. I´ll probably run tomorrow, too))

>>1394894Don't worry, the fuck strong demon is in the Bullfighting arena freezing his bones off because he thought someone would have come challenge him already. Poor guy should have packed some winter clothes.
1 January 18:16 PM//-15°C“It's getting cold too fast, guys… I'll use Agi on something flammable we can carry around or something, you guys seen anything? ““[i] It’s p-p-pretty dark out here, Nobu...cant you just cast it on the air or something? [/i] “Says Daiki, his teeth clatteringPyro Jack creates a small fireball, roughly the size of a football, that hangs in midair-”[red] [b] Hee-re, we need to warm up-hoo.

The apocalypse is happening because we skipped out on Sundays too often. May as well start making up the days.
Back. Writing...>>1397772I kekked
“Look, if we find a safe place on the w-way, we can stay there if y-you want… But we need to move, and quick. S-staying here just means we freeze our asses off”“Gotcha, Nobu. Let´s go”“I-I guess you´re r-r-right.”Your group must be a strange sight in the freezing cold- a group of teenagers accompanied by two demons walking under an eclipse steadily becoming total, with the only light coming from Pyro Jack´s fireballs, as the temperature keeps dropping… You pass through the empty streets, noticing that there are a couple of bodies on the ground that weren´t there before- probably people who were hiding in their houses and got desperate when the temperature was getting unbearable. The stench is terrible- but you grab Daiki before he stops to look at the corpses and move on, trying your best to stay warm. After what probably was 10 minutes, you add your own fire spell to Pyro Jack´s fireball, trying to offset the chilling wind that seems to be picking up…1 January, 18:30// -20ºC.While walking towards your goal, you take a look at the surrounding buildings- It seems most of them have lost most of their structural integrity due to the rapid cooling of the air- most sporting at least large cracks, some completely broken down- a few streets are completely blocked by debris and chunks of stone. Most streetlights have cracked or entirely destroyed glass, probably imploded too… But you find one building that shows no signs of damage from all this.The church.The church near El Solarón was not a place you visited often- in fact, you don´t think you had ever actually entered it, but there was something definitely odd about it being the only building around that was completely unharmed by the extreme temperatures. The wind even seemed to calm down around it… Very odd indeed.“You g-guys… think we should enter it? Th-there might be a d-d-demon or something, but…”“Fighting a demon is better than dying of this cold, i´m going in.”“K-keiko, wait!”>Follow her inside? (With/without Daiki)>Stay outside, wait for her. It´s not as cold around it, anyways, and you don´t want to leave without her>continue towards El solarón… you don´t have time to waste.>Other:Write-in?
>>1397899>Follow her inside? (With/without Daiki)"Demons in a church? Really Daiki?"
>>1397899>>Follow her inside? (With/without Daiki)
>>1397917To be fair, this IS SMT.Angels arent necessarily any better than Demons. Even if Daiki doesn´t know that.
>>1397899>Follow her inside? (With Daiki)
“Come on Daiki, it´s a c-church. Why would there be demons inside?”“I guess it b-beats freezing here… ”You push open the door, and follow Keiko inside… The first thing that hits you is that the temperature is completely normal- not cold or hot, just average. The second…“HELLO, YES, HELLO DEVIL SUMMONERS!” Greets you an overexcited man in priestly clothing, arms open wide like he´s expecting a hug. Keiko is just looking at him dumbfounded, too. You get a feeling he didn´t work here before all of this.“WELCOME TO THE CATHEDRAL OF SHADOWS, MY FRIENDS! WE´VE GOT DEMONS OF ALL KINDS, WE DO! ALSO FUSING DEMONS TO MAKE STRONGER DEMONS!” He punctuates the end of the line with a joyous laugh- Okay, this dude is creeping you out in a “too cheery for the apocalypse” way.>Demon Fusion?>…You sell demons?>Can we stay here for a while? It´s freezing outside>Any idea what the fuck is going on?>Other:Write-in?

>>1397962>Demon Fusion?>…You sell demons?Just keep him talking.
>>1397962>Demon Fusion?>…You sell demons?>Can we stay here for a while? It´s freezing outside
“Demon…Fusion? Like in Dragonball or something?”“ H A HA HA, NO” He says, an obviously exaggerated laugh- “YOU SEE, WHEN YOU FUSE TWO DEMONS, THEY ARE PERMANENTLY FUSED, AND BECOME STRONGER”“What happens to their minds, though?”“I DON´T…actually…know… BUT THEY DON’T MIND!”“That is hee-acurrate, hoo. Demon Fusion is hee-cool.”Well that´s… a weird cultural difference you guess.“So… do you sell demons?”“ NOT EXACTLY, MY FRIEND- WE AUCTION THEM- OR USED TO, AT LEAST. SEEMS LIKE THE AUCTIONING PROGRAM IS BROKEN RIGHT NOW, BUT WE HAVE A COUPLE OF DEMONS AROUND WE COULD SELL YOU IF YOU WANT ”Auction program?

Or your eardrums, holy shit is he loud.“I´LL GO SUMMON HER, AND YOU CAN SIGN THE CONTRACT THEN, OKAY?”1 January – 18:45// -30ºC.You sign the contract, and your phone rings-Demon contracted- AngelMacca:800MWell, that was… interesting. At least you got a new demon- or, well, an angel out of it.“Ah, are you the demon summoner who made a contract with me, then? I hope you´ll bring God´s light to these dirty heathens, and cleanse their sins in fire.”That was surprisingly violent for something so nice-looking, but you guess your expectations are worth nothing since this morning.>Wait for some time before leaving(Until when?)>Leave immediately>Do something else (what?)

Wish I could participate in this session, but I have Physics class to go to...
You and your group decide to stay a while longer, hopefully once the eclipse starts to fade out, the temperature from the sun will balance out and not burn you or freeze you to death instantly. You walk around the church pews, trying to find something useful- there really isn´t much here other than the wooden banks, and the carpets- you guess you could take the carpets to cover yourselves during the cold, but you don’t really know if this eclipse is a one time thing or not, and from the death glare you get from the priest you´d probably be better off without doing that…1 January 20:00//-5ºC-º- .* -¿Your phone vibrates in your pocket- another message?Cathedral of Shadows.apk has been installed!

1 January 20:05// -3ºCThe cold seems to be subsiding- though it´s still pretty damm cold, Pyro Jack´s fireballs seem to be enough to keep you all warmed up. You make your way through the ruined streets, remembering how they looked mere hours ago- All of this, and it´s still January 1rst… what a great way to start this year, really, it somehow managed to top off ALL of 2016, ha ha. Fuck, if the internet still worked you´d probably be able to at least get some more help. You don´t even know how the world outside of this city is reacting to all of this…As you near El Solarón, you notice something… the ground seems to have small patches of snow on it- which shouldn´t be possible, since there has been no rainfall since this morning, and the heat would have melted it all off-//-10ºC?As you´re getting closer to El Solarón, the temperature starts dropping again- but the eclipse is ending, so why would it be going down?>Continue getting closer [Initiate boss battle]>Back away

You walk further towards your destination, the cold becoming stronger and stronger as the wind picks up- A blizzard? But there was- well, there WERE no clouds in the sky… This reeks of demon.“Hey!”Figuratively speaking. You probably shouldn´t have said that out loud.As you walk further into the blizzard, summoning your demons, you the density of flying snow and ice is blinding- as well as the cold, digging into your bones. Is this the cause of the eclipse, or just a byproduct of it…?You hear a tremendous roar, and a figure rushes at you from the darkInitiate Battle?: WendigoThe beast stands on two feet, it´s body covered in white fur. It´s arms look like it hits harder than a freight train, and judging by the snow, it´s got ice magic… And it seems a lot stronger than what you can handle right now.“…I t-think we should run.
