Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1409350/You are Ryoma Shizuhara, a young man living with his grandfather in a small town while your mother goes under chemotherapy. So far, you made a friend, saw said friend get his soul pulled out of his body a creepy marionette version of him and pulled through a mirror, then jumped into said mirror and chased his soul through a factory. After all that, you met a strange girl, got a Persona, and saved your friend from being turned into an obedient drone by the Shadow of an overly-strict teacher. However, none of this is an acceptable reason for why you and Hiroji disappeared during lunch and didn't come back to class.So how are you going to explain your sudden absence to your grandfather?>"It was just the first day, Grandpa. Not much happens on the first day.">"I got lost">Write in

>>1423277>20Gramps sighs. "Alright, I guess...just make sure you don't get lost again. I'd hate to tell your mom you've gotten detention twice."After explaining yourself, you went straight to bed. Exploring that factory, you felt extremely tired and can't think of doing anything but going to sleep.4/12, Before SchoolYou run into Hiroji on the way to school. "Hey, dude. Yesterday was fuckin' crazy.">"How you holding up?">"I can barely believe it happened myself..."

>>1423459>>1423364>>1423320Writing (Sorry, had to go out of town to help my aunt clear out tree branches from her yard)
>>1423675"How you holding up?" you ask. Hiroji shrugs. "Eh, my parents weren't thrilled about me getting detention the first day of class, but other than that I'm fine...Did you try to move through your mirrors at home?"You shake your head. Hiroji rubs the back of his head. "I tried in the bathroom at home but I couldn't get through because the mirror is right over the bathroom sink. If I put a knee down on the sink I might have gotten through...But that risks breaking the sink off the wall and my parents would probably kill me in ways worse than any of the Shadows..."You chuckle, but Hiroji raises a valid concern: there's no way you could easily get into the Reflected World with a bathroom mirror...You went through the school bathroom mirror last time but that raises two problems: if you went into the mirror during school hours, you'd constantly be committing truancy. And in order to do it outside of school hours you'd have to break into the building, which would likely get you expelled."We're gonna need a mirror of our own...One of those big standing mirrors." you say."Right, but where'd we put it?" Asks Hiroji.>"Could you keep it at your place?">"We could put in my grandpa's barn...He doesn't use the upper loft often.">"Is there a forest or something we could hide it?">Write in

"If your grandpa ever asks, we can just tell him we're studying when we're really in the Reflected World."He stops and sighs. "Man, this is so crazy... I was thinking about all this last night and I had to ask myself if I was really willing to risk my hide to save people from the Shadows...But after thinking about what Takeda would have turned me into I realized that this is the only I thing I could do and live with myself. I mean, Yolanda said people don't know they're sending people through the mirror. If this went on for too long...God, eventually everyone would be conforming to someone else's perception of that. A world where you're nothing more than what someone else thinks of you... That's not a world I want to live in.">"We're doing the right thing.">"If not us, then who?">"It's a lot of responsibility, but we're the only ones who can do this.">Write in

>>1423975Hiroji coughs. "Anyway, I'll see if I can find one of those standing mirrors. Don't know how we're gonna get it up into the loft without breaking it, though..."When you and Hiroji reach the gate, you are stopped by the history teacher, a middle-aged woman named Mrs. Nakahara. "You two!">"Who, us?">"Is there something wrong?">Just keep walking>Write in

>>1423992>>1423997>>1424000"Is there something wrong?" you ask.Mrs. Nakahara lets out a harrumph and hands you each a pink paper slip. "You're detention has been scheduled for this Saturday afternoon. You'll be staying after class to mop hallways. I'm sure the custodian will be pleased to get some work taken off his hands for once.""This Saturday? Aw man, I had plans!" complains Hiroji. "Maybe you should have thought about that before you and Shizuhara snuck off to who-knows-where."You pocket the detention paper when out of the corner of your eye you notice a rather tough-looking girl with long black hair walking up. The girl freezes when she sees Nakahara and begins to walk a different direction, away from Nakahara. However, the old teacher notices her too."Where do you think YOU'RE going, Ayabe?" The girl stops mid-step. "Old bitch..." you hear her mutter. Nakahara seems unfazed. "I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that....I've got detention papers for you, too. Momoko, you'll be serving your detention this Saturday alongside Hiroji Kotoku and Ryoma Shizuhara"Hiroji goes pale.

She's almost always getting into fights, she's got a bunch of other delinquent girls under her...she's a scary person."You don't respond to Hiroji. You just watch Momoko grip the detention slip tightly in her fist.(Gonna continue this later. Need to sleep.)
>>1424218Thanks for running!Loving the quest so far, just don't burn yourself out

>>1424391Eh, the Arcana will vary up in time but usually you get that typical spread of Arcana because those are the first Arcanas that you start with- the Tower Personas start at level 30-ish in P3 and P4

>>1424570>>1424621"Think it had to do with beating his Shadow?" you ask. "Probably." says Hiroji. While you and Hiroji eat, you see Momoko eating alone- that is, until a trio of very intimidating looking female students walks up to her. However, they seem to hold Momoko with high regard, based on how they talk to her."Hey, boss, heard that Nakahara gave you detention." says one of the girls. "Want us to get her to change her mind? Maybe smash the windows of her car?"Momoko sighs. "Just forget it...I'll serve detention....honestly, it ain't worth the hassle."This seems to surprise the delinquent girls. "H-huh? Are you feelin' OK, boss?" one of them asks. "That ain't like you!""Look, just forget it, okay?" Momoko says forcefully. "I don't fucking want to put gas on the fire, so just stay out of it!""Don't tell you've gone soft, Ayabe-sama." says one of the younger-looking delinquents. "You're supposed to be our leader! Don't act like a coward!""I ain't a fucking coward, dipshit...." snarls Momoko. She starts standing up, and you can feel the menacing aura she's giving off. "I'm just fucking sick of dealing with this shit, getting in and out of trouble...it's all fucking annoying, and you pieces of shit ain't fucking helping..."The delinquents do not take kindly to this, and their body language becomes hostile towards Momoko. "Dude, we should probably leave..." whispers Hiroji. "Shit's about to go down.">"Yeah, let's get outta here...">"I wanna see how this plays out.">"And miss a 3-on-1 catfight?

>>1424678>>1424679"I want to see how this plays out." you say. Momoko glares at the delinquents. "You really gonna try an' start somethin'? I could smash all your fucking heads in, no problem."The delinquent girls snarl, but they back off. "I can't believe this..." says one of them. "You've gotten weak."The delinquent walks off, and Momoko stands there for a moment. She sighs, then sits down. "...shit." she mutters. Then she turns to look to you."What are you two chucklefucks lookin' at?" she snarls.>"Uh...we were just leaving.">"You.">Say nothing, leave.
>>1424791>"You."Didn't want you to get jumped by 3 people without someone around to help pull them off at least, not that you don't look like you can handle yourself

"Didn't want you to get jumped by 3 people without someone around to help pull them off at least...not that you don't look like you can handle yourself." you say. Momoko's eyes narrow. "Look, just mind your own business." she says, with a clear threat behind her words.Hiroji grabs you by the shoulder. "We were just leaving." he says, dragging you away. After managing to get you out of earshot of Momoko, he glares at you. "Dude, are you fucking suicidal?" he hisses. "Momoko would've ripped off your dick and forced you to eat it!"You roll your eyes. Something about how she acted makes you think she's not the person Hiroji thinks she is. >After SchoolYou are heading home when you see a peculiar blue door that seems to stand on its own.

"Now that you have awakened to the power of Persona, you will need the services of the Velvet Room to create new, stronger Personas.""Wait, new Personas?" you ask. "Indeed," says Igor. "As you represent the Fool Arcana, you are zero- the void in which all things are possible. With that potential comes the Wild Card- the power to possess multiple Personas. At the present time, you can carry up to six, but as you grow stronger, your capacity to hold more inner selves will grow with you.""So how do I get more Personas?" you ask. Henry steps in. "You can obtain more Personas by negotiating with the Shadows in the Reflected World...those common Shadows you see are demons from the sea of humanity's souls. Negotiate with them and you may rekindle their memories and, in return, take them as Personas.""And when you collect these Personas, you can bring them back here and fuse them together, creating a new Persona from the sea of your own soul." says Igor."We'll see you again when you are ready for our services." says Henry.You leave the Velvet Room and walk home, where Gramps is waiting, reading a newspaper."Hey, kid.

Tell me, how much do you know about harvesting crops?""Not much," you say."Well, it's not that hard." says Gramps. "There's soybeans that need picking, so how about you and I head on out to the fields and get to work?"You nod, and a few hours later you are drenched in sweat, sitting in the grass with a few buckets filled with soybeans.

It's got a reflective surface roughly the size of an adult male, so we should have no problems getting through it.

"Hiroji, you need to move quickly," you whisper."Huh, why?""Dog. Big dog. Big, angry dog."The dog begins barking and snarling at Hiroji, who has gone pale as a sheet. He begins frantically pushing the mirror over as you help set it down on your side of the fence. He puts a leg up on the fence and that's when the dog comes after him, teeth bared.

"God dammit..." groans Hiroji. "I'm gonna have a bad time explaining how this happened..."You manage to find a dolly to move the mirror and tie it down with your jacket as an impromptu rope. After that's done, you and Hiroji use an old but functional hay trolley to pull the mirror up to the upper loft.Hiroji wipes a bead of sweat off his forehead."Wanna check if this'll work?" asks Hiroji.>"Sure.">"Maybe tomorrow...">Write in

You see Yolanda there, cross-legged on the ground and eyes closed. "Did someone get sent over here?" asks Yolanda."Uh, no." answers Hiroji. "Then why are you here?" asks Yolanda, sounding stern.>"We want to train.">"We got mirror to use when someone gets sent here.">"Are you always gonna be like this?">Write in(I'm getting sleepy and my tablet battery is running low so I'll continue this later...Though I may make a new thread if this autosages)

"This is Xinaian." says Yolanda. "It's a massive underground Shadow hive.""Shadow hive?" parrots Hiroji. "Is it safe to be here?" "The entrance is safe...plus, I can sense a few floors down there's no Shadows." says Yolanda. "I've wanted to investigate this place since I found it, but I didn't think I could do it alone. But before we do that..."Yolanda walks up right next to the cavern's entrance and begins digging. When she comes back, she's holding a burlap bag. "Some weaponry I found from that factory dungeon." she explains, "First, you'll need a melee weapon.

>>1427500>>1427509>>1427524You take the spear, Hiroji takes the axe, and Yolanda takes the sword. "I also found these..." says Yolanda, pulling out more stuff from the sack. There's a pistol, a shotgun, and a semiautomatic.>Take the pistol (Use handguns)>Take the shotgun (Use shotguns)>Take the semiautomatic (Use SMGs)
>>1427537>Take the semiautomatic (Use SMGs)I take it this is some sort of PCC?
>>1427537>>Take the semiautomatic (Use SMGs)Spear a meh, better than axes though.
>>1427537>Take the shotgun (Use shotguns)We need a real mans weapon!
>>1427537>Take the semiautomatic (Use SMGs)
>>1427540>>1427556>>1427583You take the submachine gun. Hiroji takes the shotgun, and Yolanda takes the pistol. "Alright, now that we've got that taken care of, let's get going." says Yolanda.(Continued)
>>1427603You step into the cavern and take it in. "This...isn't what I was expecting." says Yolanda. "Yeah, this doesn't look like a natural cave..." says Hiroji.You just shrug and run in. "Hey, where do you think you're going?!" says Yolanda.To get some new Personas, you think. Henry said that the Shadows would become Personas if you negotiated with them. So when you see a formless blob of darkness around the corner, you can't wait to get down to business.>Roll 1d20

>>1427696>>1427680Alright, I need to explain how to negotiation works- you have to knock down all enemies in order to initiate negotiations. Once all enemies are down, you can either do an All-Out Attack or negotiate for money, items, or to make the enemy you're negotiating with a Persona.

>>1427731You spray your gun, not used to using firearms. However, you manage to shoot down the Shadows, knocking them prone.One of the Shadow girls weakly lifts her head. "Th-this can't be any worse...don't kill me...I'll do anything....">"Lend me your power.">"Give me money.">"I want an item."

One of the girls gets up and looks at you."I remember something...I'm not a Shadow...I am an existence that drifts along the in sea of humanity's souls...My real name...is 'Pixie'!"With that, all but one Shadow disappears and the remainder glows with a brilliant blue light, turning into an antique iron key. The key flies towards your neck, and the collar appears around your neck. The key slots into a previously non-existent lock on the collar and seems to melt into the keyhole.>You have taken a new Persona key: Pixie of the Lovers Arcana!Yolanda stares in shock. "Wh-what did you just do?">"New Persona. You dig?">"I think I just got a new Persona...">Write in.

>>1427866"New Persona. You dig?"
>>1427870>>1427881>>1427946"New Persona. You dig?" you respond. You rip off the collar and Pixie appears behind you, winking playfully at Yolanda and Hiroji. They both stare at you flabbergasted."How is this possible...?" asks Yolanda. "I thought you wield one Persona!"She chuckles, and for the first time ever you see her smile. "It seems I assumed to little of you...this potential of yours will give us an incredible advantage.""This kicks ass!" Hiroji says excitedly. "Let's see if you can get even more Personas!">"Persona Shopping? Hell yeah!">"Let's exercise caution...those Shadows were weak, I might not be so lucky next time.">Write in

The autumn witch manifests behind her and shoots a jet of water at the pumpkin-thing. The spell sends the Shadow reeling, giving Yolanda the chance to attack again. She repeats the process, dousing the other Shadow."What do you want to do?" asks Yolanda.>All Out Attack>Negotiate
>>1428651>NegotiateKinda disappointed that no filthy degenerate robosexuals are trying to dispute my assertion of Miss Kirijo's inherent superiority as a waifu.

I'm getting sleepy and my tablet battery is starting to get low so I'll continue this thread in the morning.
>>1429436Good run VRH.Dream of your Best Girl of choice.

>>1429332>>1429609>>1429389"With no regrets." you say."Hee-ho, that's a pretty good answer." says the Shadow. "Personally, I-wait a minute...I ain't no stinkin' Shadow, hee ho! I'm a demon, hee-ho! Jack O'Lantern's the name! Lemme help you out!"Jack O'Lantern turns into a key and melts into your collar.>You have taken a new Persona key: Jack O'Lantern of the Magician Arcana!"Way to go, Ryoma-san!" cheers Hiroji. Yolanda, on the other hand, looks distracted- no, she looks afraid."We have to get out of here, NOW." she says in a terrified voice.>"Why, what's wrong?">"Are you OK?">Write in
>>1429780>"Why, what's wrong?"
>>1429821"Th-there's a powerful Shadow coming...I don't know why I didn't sense it earlier...It's so much more powerful than the other Shadows..."You begin to hear the rattling of chains, and some primal fear awakens within you, as if you are instinctively linking the sound of chains with death iteself...>Don't say anything, just RUN.>"Run! Everyone, RUN!"
>>1429913>>"Run! Everyone, RUN!"Hiroji might be left behind if we don't give him the order. Also fuck yes run.
>>1429913>>"Run! Everyone, RUN!"
>>1429955>>1430095"Run! Everyone, RUN!" you scream, tearing back to the entrance like a bat out of hell. As you glance behind you, you see a chained, one-eyed Shadow chasing after you, gliding along the floor of the tunnels like some horrible ghost."KEEP RUNNING!" you scream."You don't have to tell me twice!" shouts Hiroji as he beats feet.After 30 horrifying seconds, you make it back to the cavern's entrance, all of you panting and exhausted."What...the fuck...was that...?" Hiroji asked between deep gasps for oxygen. "I've never seen or sensed anything like that." says Yolanda. "It just...appeared out of nowhere. Like it came out of the walls or something. The next time we go into Xinaian, we'll have to keep moving. I think it won't come after us if we avoid staying in one area for too long...">"Agreed.">"We'll do that...until we're strong enough to beat it.">Write in
>>1430211>We'll do that...until we're strong enough to beat it."Gotta have goals
>>1430228>>1430387"Agreed," you say after catching your breath. "So now what?" asks Yolanda. "Are we done for the day, Captain?"You look at her, confused. "Captain..?"Yolanda nods. "Well, between your ability to use multiple Personas and the fact that you seem to be taking such initiative saving people from the Reflected World, it only makes sense for you to be the leader of this group.""I agree," says Hiroji. "You're probably the best thing we've got in this fight.">"I guess...">"If you want me to, I'll be the leader.">"That's a lot of responsibility for me to take...">Write in

With the birth of the Fool, thou hast found a new road to greater power.>You have established the FOOL Social Link with the Liberators!"We should get going. We'll be back when someone gets sent here." says Hiroji. "Speaking of which," says Yolanda. "I should mention there's a way to find out if someone's going to be pulled in. It varies from person to person, but before they get sent here, they'll be harassed by some form of supernatural phenomena.""Oh, you mean like the flickering lights in the bathroom be I got grabbed? Got it, we'll keep an eye out."(Continued)
(Updates on this might be slow...water pipe in my house just burst.)
>>1430656You and Hiroji leave the Reflected World and exchange contact info. After that, you head back to the house. "Hey there, Ryoma." says Gramps. "What took ya so long?">"Hanging with a friend.">"Studying.">Write in
