Persona Quest, True Reincarnation Mode>Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Persona%20Quest%20Golden>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 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. >Previously..."That's what she was wearing when..." Yukiko murmurs, looking thoughtful. "That's exactly what Miss Yamano was wearing the day she disappeared from the inn. She only had one blouse like that, and she didn't wear it out in public...."The shock on the other two's faces is apparent, though this feels not completely surprising to you."Ha-ha! That's a good one, Yukiko!" Chie starts, before she notices the serious expression of her friend."...Oh man, this is big..." Yosuke mutters, looking around. "That all that you saw?">Wanna see a magic trick?
>>27289424"Well..." You respond, shaking your head at Yosuke. "There's one more thing, but it's going to sound crazier than the rest of this..." "Don't tell me some spooky monster came out of the TV..." Yousuke says quietly, looking at you nervously. Chie nods at that statement, shaking somewhat herself. Looks like you've spooked them."Not really." You reply, shaking your head. "It'd be easier to show you. Is there an AV room we could head to?" "Uh... Yukiko and I are gonna pass on that." The short-haired girl in green says, waving her hands in front of her. "Lunch is almost over, anyway, and she needs to head home early after school!"You turn to look at Yosuke, who seems to be considering it. "Sorry, man! I've got work after school, can't see whatever weirdness you want to show me."He says, almost exactly mimicking Chie's gesture after a pause....Looks like they don't believe you, or think you're trying to set them up.The bell rings, interrupting the talk and sending everyone hurrying off, the other three tossing you the containers with a thanks and scurrying off. ============School ends after a short while, and you head out. At the gate, it seems a small confrontation is taking place...Yukiko and Chie are standing there, and a rather creepy looking student in the uniform of a different school is talking to them. From what you can see, Yukiko looks somewhat worried, and Chie looks annoyed...>Leave them be>Step in>Write in
>>27289424Hell yes we want to see a magic trick. Well, show a magic trick since this is in the second person. Whatever. Point is: Whoo, Persona Quest, True Reincarnation Mode!
>Both Cosgrove and Irksome post their quest at the same timeSuffering
>>27289502I know, right? And I have material strengths homework I should be doing. Curse you, awesome quest runners of /tg/!
>>27289455FLYING DROPKICK HIM IN THE FACE
>>27289455> Step inLet's not let this guy creep out our new friends/acquaintances.
>>27289455>>Step in>"Back off."
>>27289548Yeah! Only we get to do that!
>>27289455walk up and say, "Hey guys! How's it going?"
>>27289502I can't wait to need to roll.Your despair, it sustains me.
>>27289929Cosgrove, we know. There's no need to spoiler that.
>>27289455>Step inGreet Chie and Yukiko as socially appropriate for our state of acquaintance and the situation. Appear mildly puzzled at the other student. Don't be overtly hostile yet.
>So "Step in"?
>>27290153Step in and step it up.And by that I meant, let's go with >>27290081's suggestion.
>>27289455>The short-haired girl in green says, waving her hands in front of her.Could you please not do this? It's really awkward to read. You did it a little in the last thread too. Use a consistent name for the same character when the narrator's talking.That is to say, please don't switch between Yosuke and Hanamura, don't switch between Yosuke and "the headphones wearing boy," just use Yosuke - it makes me have to take a second to think "who's Hanamura" or "which person has headphones" to figure out you're talking about, which breaks the flow of reading.
>>27290694Alright, can do. Don't even know why I do that, thinking about it....
>>27290729i personal like that style of writing and keep from repitition
>>27290803>and keep from repititionwhat the fuck happened there, what i ment was that it keeps from repitition and make the writing more enjoyable in my opinion
>>27290803>>27290839Usually people gloss over "___ says", though, so it's all good.
>>27290839Your wording still got the point acrossbut your grammar was sub par,which is usually the case on the internet.
>>27290923yeah late nights on /tg/ are grammar killers.
>>27290803>>27290839It's time to go to sleep, anon.Thread'll still be here in the morning.
>>27290803Just gonna dump a quote here.>Sometimes amateurs play “musical names” because they’re afraid that using the same name over and over again will become repetitive.>What they don’t realize is that repetition is rarely a problem with names — names aren’t a stylistic device, they’re a signpost to guide us through the story, telling us who’s doing what. On those rare occasions when it really would be awkward to repeat the name, we already have a solution: the pronoun.
>>27291092This.(On rare occasion it's stylistically worthwhile to refer to someone by a property, and then to someone else by a contrasting property, but that's a special case and starts looking stupid really quickly if overdone.)
>>27291092u sum kinda faggot? u got a problem with the way i like how OP discribes people 'steada usin der names? u tryin ta say im sum kinda idjit?
>>27291272Go home, Kanji, you're drunk.
>>27291272Are you an ESL speaker, by any chance? I'm told that in some other languages it is common to use multiple names, but in English you use one consistently.
>>27291305no... english is my first language, why cant i just like that style of writing. why are people making a big deal out of it?
>>27291474This post made me laugh way too hard
>Step inAs you start over to help with the situation, you see Yosuke stop next to them as he's walking his bike through the gate"..And trust me, buddy, they've both turned me down." He finishes as you near the gate. Seems he had the same idea as you."Hello, Miss Amagi, Miss Satonaka." You say, waving. "What's going on here?"The two girls look at you, half relieved and half worried. "This joker decided to try the Amagi Challenge without planning ahead." Yosuke says, turning to face you and pointing at the strange student with his thumb. "I was just being kind enough to let him know that even I got shot down." The student seems to bristle at that and growls under his breath."FINE!" He yells, turning and running off.You watch as he rounds the streetcorner. "...Wh-what was that all about?" Yukiko asks, confusion on her face apparent. "Wasn't it obvious?" Chie turns to face her friend. "He was asking you out on a date.""Huh? Really...?""Man, that's cold." Yosuke says, watching as the two girls walk on. "She did the same to me last year." Wheeling his bike past the gate, he climbs on and waves to you. "Well, uh, see you around!" With that, he kicks off, pedaling away.Checking on your watch, it seems you've got some time to kill... You->Head straight home>Go see the sights of the town>Write in

>>27291534Check around Inaba for any crafts stores. Yu's always liked sewing, it would be nice if he could find a store to supply his hobby here in town.
>Go see the sights of the townLike a breath of fresh air! Heh.
>Go around town, yes?
>>27291534lets buy some reading material, how about some of those courage boosters eh?
>>27291737yes.I mean, what's the worst that can happen?
>>27291794...> we are so screwed
>>27291794We find Mayumi Yamano's corpse, get interviewed on the news, and show up on the Midnight Channel to be targeted by Nametame? Of course, our shadow is pretty chill with us, so he'd probably just let us back out again. I don't know what that would do to Nametame's mental state.
>>27291895>Fuck you, we're taking you with us!
>>27291895I wanna try fighting one of those monsters tonight
>See the sights of town, and maybe pick up some reading material...You decided to go look around the town.=======Your path took you through a small suburb, and to the old shopping district.Standing across the street from the corner gas station, you look down the road. Plenty of stores to go to, and you're sure there are a few more around the corner.Hm... First, you'll go to the->Bookstore>Metalworker>Tofu shop?>General store>Go around- the corner

>>27292012Oh, right, I forgot that Inaba has nothing of any interest. I guess let's go around the corner to see the other half of the town.
>>27292012Metalworker. Master Daidara is awesome.
>>27292012General store. It's where everyone goes at first.
>>27292012>Go around- the corner>callyWel ELIZABETHNo, Captcha, P3's main will come back from the dead to kill us if we even THINK about her.

>>27292402Too bad we don't have the Velvet Key, yet. Well, soon enough, I suppose.
>>27292402Casually slow down, using rubbernecking at the bookstore stand as an excuse. Brush against and/or examine the interesting space more closely as we walk by.>>27292434Well, but that was before we knew about the interesting thing! Eh, fine, plan will keep.
>Around the cornerNearing the corner, you walk past a Chinese diner, a bulletin board, and then a small shop from which the smell of steak drifts. Passing the closed stores on the corner, you take a look. There's a hobby store that seems to have a surprising number of boys around your age in it to the left, then a shrine and textiles shop on the right. At the end of the road, there's a liquor store, with several vending machines in front of it.You'll go to->One of the first places>The diner>The bulletin board>The steak shop>The hobby store>The shrine>The textile place>...The liquor store?
>>27292545>the hobby shopawwwww yiss
>>27292545The dinerI realized there's not much happening at this point
>>27292545Textile store. Yu needs crafts supplies. And having another guy show interest in sewing should do interesting things for Kanji's self-esteem. Maybe we can even get a social link to him before he joins the party. That would be neat.
>>27292545>>The hobby storeWe're buying a gundam model. Master Grade. I'm thinking either the Sinanju or Unicorn- they're newer models.

>Want me to flip a coin or something?
>>27292718What's the tiebreaker?
>>27292545>a hobby store that seems to have a surprising number of boys around your age in itWell. That's an interesting change, isn't it.Hit the bulletin board first; it won't take long.
>Textile it is. >WritingWhat are you buying, by the by?
Let's get a stuffed animal for Nanako.
>>27292791Just window shopping, never seen a textile shop before.
>>27292791A bolt of craft felt and some serger thread. We'll make Nanako a little stuffed doll with it.
>>27292791>Ask the proprietor if they have lessons on sewing or if they know of anyone who might.
>>27292955This sounds promising
>Textile shopWalking up to the Tatsumi Textiles storefront, you open the door and step in. The air-conditioning is noticeable as you take a look around. After a moment, a gray haired woman, in a green kimono walks out from the back room."Oh, hello. " She says, giving a slight bow. "It's not often that we get high school students in here. How may I help you?""I'm looking for some craft felt and thread." You reply, setting down the scarf you had been looking at and turning to her. "And maybe a pattern for a small doll?""Well, we certainly have those." She says, turning to head over to the far wall. "What colors would you like?"You pause."...I hadn't thought about that. Er... It's for my little cousin." You say, scratching your neck. "I'm going to be staying with my uncle and his daughter for the next year, so I figured I'd try my hand at making something for her as a gift."The woman turns around and takes a look at you. "You're a good boy, then, if you're willing to try sewing to have a gift for your cousin." She says, turning back around and gathering up several different colors of felt. "I wish more students were like you."She bustles about, cutting the felt, gathering some thread, and pulling out a pattern, before speaking to you again. "Now, the felt and thread come to 1800 yen," She says, putting the collected goods in a bag. You pause for a moment, and are about to ask about the pattern when she interrupts you."Oh, you can have the pattern for free. It's always nice to see a young man interested in sewing who isn't afraid to show it." The shopkeeper says, waving you off. "If you'd like lessons, feel free to stop by on the weekend."...You paid and left the store, giving the shop owner your thanks.Looking around, the crowd outside of the hobby shop seems to have reduced in size, but is still there. A glance at your watch shows that you have more time to kill.>Write in
>>27293761Hobby shopSinanju or Char's Zaku.
>>27293761Might as well see what the crowd is about.
Sorry about the delay. Dog needed to walked.
>So, visit the hobby shop?
>>27294207HELL TO THE FUCK TO THE YES WE GOTTA GET OUR MODEL KIT BUILDAN ON, SON
>Hobby storeYou decided to head across the street to the Marutake Hobby Shop.Walking in, you manage to make it past the small crowd still in front of the door.Looking around, you see more people in here than you'd expect from such a small shop, though they mostly seem to be looking browsing the various sections set aside for different series. Finding the shopkeeper sitting behind the counter, scribbling something on a notepad, you step up and tap on the counter to indicate your presence."If you're just here to flirt with her, she's trying to find out where ou-" He starts with a sigh, looking up from the . "Oh. A new face in this humble shop." "I apologize for that." He says, shaking his head. "Most of my new customers are only here because of the girl I hired a few months ago.""Not that I'm complaining, just... " He sighs again."Anyway, how can I help you?"...You ask about the models you came looking for. ..."Oh, one of those? Yeah, we should have one or two in stock. "He says, peering towards the leftmost set of shelves. "Back there, near the corner."You retrieve the model with little effort, picking up a hobby knife and some plastic cutters. As the shopkeeper rings you out, you wince. This will cut into your funds for a few weeks, unless you find a job...Paying the price, you thank the storeowner with a nod, and leave....Looks like you have time for one more stop.
Annnnd this is where I call it a night. I'll give a half-hour to an hour's warning on my twitter for when I run this next. Good night, all. Sorry about my generally slow updates.

>>27295045Why are you and Cosgrove so obsessed with KotomineIt keeps reminding me of my want to host a Fate quest
>>27295082We hail from the same forum, and are F/SN fans, actually. And since pic related...Well, you can see why. I actually goaded him into starting up his first Quest.He then convinced me to run this.You should run yours. Can't be that bad.
>>27295132Yeah, right after I learn writing 101 and write enough stuff for about 55 in-game daysSpeaking of which, is there any system for Fate?
>>27295147Not that I know of. It'd probably be best to build one yourself, really. That way, you can account for the bonuses and such you want.
>>27295147One request for that.. It'd be nice to see an all OC cast and an at least somewhat cool heroic spirit.Last Fate/Stay game I tried to play featured Incubator and magical girls.I personally dropped it first thread as I wasn't quite thrilled about that...Ah, and it also may be interesting to play as the servant. Some of the mages are scrubs after all.
>The General storeLet's see if we can find a copy of that Kung fu DVD in town. It's probably unlikely, but we should check it out.
>>27297869>all OC castGod no
Brace for impact
....I suppose I COULD run today's in this thread, if that's what's wanted. I'd have preferred a clean, new thread, though. ..Opinions?

>>27303645>>Investigate the area that felt off by the metalworkerWe all know /tg/ is incapable of leaving well enough alone, Miskatonic University Quest has well-proven that.
>>27303645>The shrineFUCK YES
/tg/ is really slow right now, it isnt just this thread. Bad timing?
>>27303771Yeah, it's been slow all day. It's Wednesday, after all.
>>27303792Makes sense, Itll pick up in an hour or two when people start getting off work
>>27303645Investigate the area that felt off by the metal worker
Go to the Metalworker's place as a pretense to investigate why that area felt weird.
Metalworker it is. >Give me 1d20 for Investigation

Rolled 19>>27303890I'm pretty sure it's 20.>>27303910Hmm. On the one hand, a) I doubt 20 would actually be enough to beat the DC, and b) we'll probably get the Velvet Key pretty soon.On the other hand, 1) it's likely to be a relatively short thread, with few opportunities to spend the bonus, and 2) Igor could possibly help us keep the next poor sod from dying.... no, I think the bonus could probably help us with that as well as Igor could. Don't use it.

>Investigate the metalworksYou head over to the metalworker's shop, using window shopping as a cover for your curiosity. >13>Fortune Perk! +7!>20!You poke around the sidewalk some. There's something here, you can tell, but you can't quite place what it is, but it's right... HERE- The door of the foundry opens loudly, and a gruff looking man steps his head out, looking at you. "Hey, kid. If you want to look, it's easier from inside." He says, glancing at the spot you're standing by, before walking back in. You turn back to look again, but after a minute of looking, you can't seem to find the spot again....>Step inside? >Go on your way.
>>27304523>Ask him how he got that scar
>>27304552Second this. It's how you make polite conversation.
>>27304523Step inside and say Hi
>>27304523Might as well go in and take a look around. An actual look around, mind you, this stuff is kinda interesting even if you can't really afford anything.Also, state that the windows outside his shop give reflect the light in strange patterns. If he reacts at all to us noting that area specifically, then he probably knows what that weird feeling was.That, or Yu has started a slow descent into madness.
>>27304523>He says, glancing at the spot you're standing by, before walking back inAh. He knows.Go on in.
>Go inside and make polite conversation?
>>27305000Get on with it, yes.
>>27305129Yeah, yeah. I'm working on it.>Writing
>Go inside and make polite conversationLeaving the suspicious spot alone, you step inside the Daidara Metalworks. The place is a mess. From what you can see, a literal ton of various weapons, armors, and tools are strewn around the shelves on the walls. There are even a few piles of stuff on the floor. "Kid," The man says, looking at you from behind the counter. "You're the fourth person to stop and look around that same spot in the past three days. What's so damn interesting about it?"...That's surprising. "Well..." You pause for a moment, scrambling your brain for an excuse. "That window was reflecting in an odd pattern. I was wondering what it was."He gives you a look. "Well, if you say so..." He mutters, before speaking louder. "Anyway, welcome to Daidara Metalworks. I'm Master Daidara. Feel free to take a look around."He thumps his thumb into his chest with that, before gesturing at the mess that is the store....You spend a few minutes looking around, before your curiosity gets the better of you. "Erm..." You start, catching the attention of the smith as he's hammering at... Something you can't make out. "If you don't mind me asking, how did you get that scar?"Daidara looks up from his work, squinting at you."It's a long story." He says, looking off to the side somewhat."But when I was about your age, a few friends of mine and I were messing around with some things on a bet. Needless to say, it stopped being fun after I got this."...Well then. "So kid? Be careful with weaponry. That stuff hurts."...You browsed the store a bit before leaving.>Head home>Stay out juusssttt a bit later....
>>27305921>>Head homeNo sense staying out late.

>>27306281Okay, but watch out for bosses, after you beat one your cerberus will be teleported away, never to be seen again.
>HomeYou decided to head home....As you walk back into the Dojima residence and set your bag to the side, you see your uncle and cousin seated in the living room, half-full dishes on the table between them."Ah, there you are." Dojima says, waving you over. "Nanako told me that you shared some of the lunch you made with her.""It was really good!" The girl pipes in cheerfully, looking at you almost pleadingly. "Can you make more tomorrow?"You pause at that. The whole thing was..."I'm sorry, but I don't think I can do that again." You say, shaking your head sadly. "That was a fluke, and I've even forgotten what I used."Nanako's expression falls at that. "But don't worry! I'm sure I can make something almost as good tomorrow!" You continue, watching as your cousin perks up. "Heh." You turn to Dojima, who's smiling at the conversation. "Looks like you two are getting along well already. I was worried that you wouldn't." "Anyway, sit down and eat. I'm guessing you took a look around to see what's where?" He says, nodding at your bag. "What did you get?""Oh, a model and some sewing supplies." You say, causing Dojima's eyebrow to raise. "I figured I'd need something to do for a bit, and I could try to do something creative. ""Huh. Wouldn't have figured you for the crafty type." He says, shrugging. "Well, it's your time."...You ate in relative silence, with occasional small talk. =========After dinner, you realized it would be a bit longer before you needed to go to sleep...Dojima is sitting at the kitchen table again, reading a newspaper.

>>27306873Well now that i think about itnot very much at this point
>>27306870hm.... I'm less worried about it than before, but still worried nonetheless.
Hey. OP, I vote we tell Dojima everything that happened while by the tv. THEN STICK IT IN if he stops us mid-sentence or after we finish
>>27306884Nanako falls in. You monsters.
>>27306911>STICK IT INdont you mean J-J-J-JAM IT IN
>>27306920>Character development>Badits true reincarnation modo something bad was going to happen to Nanako at some point
>>27306911This would be pretty cool. If only to derail things further.
>>27306941She turns into moot.
>>27306941Yeah and now you've just killed her due to no teddie deus ex machina. gg no re
>>27306960I laughed way to hard at this
>>27306911That actually bothered me a bit in the beginning of P4. At the start I wanted to tell Dojima what was up, since we'd have the opportunity. The fact he's our uncle means we'd get the chance for him to hear us out.
Tell Dojima what happened, then show.
>>27306968I aim to please.
>>27306987I figured he wouldn't believe us, the second Yu stuck his hand in the TV in front of the others I had that thought though. I was annoyed that I never got the option to tell him.
>TV+SewingYou head upstairs, to your room. Maybe the Shadow living in your TV knows something about sewing, you think as you lock your room door and set down your bag. Standing in front of your TV, you come to an odd realization...How the hell are you going to knock?Eventually screen IS basically the door, you give it a few light raps, before sticking your head in and squeezing the rest of your body through, craft supplies and tools in hand....Maybe you should get a bigger TV when you have the money, you think as you fall into the white room, landing in a crouch. Looking around, you see the Shadow lounging on a couch, an old TV set in front of him apparently showing the antics of a brightly colored cartoon bear. "Yo." He says, waving back to you absently. "Thanks for knocking.""Not a problem." You say, shrugging. "Figured I'd drop in for a bit, maybe sew some stuff."The Shadow stands up, turning to look at you. "Sew? You're kidding, right?" He asks, looking at you. "You know, next you'll tell me you cook, fence, are a star soccer player, and all that shit."You give him a quizzical look. "The other me's a jack of all trades." He says, eying you carefully. "You're more like him than I thought, but you somehow aren't him...""Anyway!" The Shadow seems to want to get his mind off of that... Odd. "I can help you out some, if you want. I'm crashing in your dungeon, so I may as well pay rent somehow." ...The two of you got started on the bear project, getting the fabric cut to the right specifications, before the Shadow seems to twitch."Well what do you know." He says, looking to the door. "Sounds like the lesser Shadows are pissseeedddd at something.">Check it out>Continue sewing times with Shadow Yu>Write in
>Regarding the (late) votes to go show Dojima the TV thing, anything after I say >Writing will be mostly ignored, unless it's suggestions for dialogue for the winning option, which was Sewing+TV in this case. >Lame, I know.
>>27307205>>Check it outMight as well see what they're on about.
>>27307205"wanna go make them shut up?"
>>27307205Fuck shadows, we're sewing.Ask him if he knows shadow nanako or shadow Dojima
>>27307205>Check it out
>>27307072We can now though. Dojima as a party member. Think about that.>>27307228Can we do it in the near future at least?
>>27307264>Yes, but you probably don't want Nanako watching, for reasons that may become apparent. >They aren't nice reasons.
>>27307205>"Sew? You're kidding, right?" He asks, looking at you. "You know, next you'll tell me you cook, fence, are a star soccer player, and all that shit."[spoilers]OP, what is True Resurrection Mode?Are the story derails a result of the Difficulty Mode, and Shadow Yu a result of choosing Everything? Do we have unlimited funds?[/spoilers]>Ask about it/Check it out>Ask him if he existed just to kill the other Yu, and if so, is he just going to hang out now he's free?
>>27307205>Check it Out>>27307304So we just confront him while she goes to sleep.Also.>Ask if a Shadow Dojima would show up to kill his Uncle if he brought him inside, why it would happen and how it could be prevented (other than not bringing him in).
>>27307304Curiosity killed the Nanako and all that
>>27307321In order:A difficulty mode, yes, and no.
Adachi is the killer.Sorry, obligated by law to have at least one of these posts in any thread relating to Persona.
>>27307402Oh, wait. Misread the second question. "Maybe"
>>27307419So Shadow Yu appearing MIGHT be because we chose the Deck?OP, how much longer do you have? Enough to do another thing after checking out the shadows and stuff?
>>27307419A Shadow like him would have shown up regardless of who you chose, to be honest.
>>27307411True Resurrection Mode. He isn't.
>>27307438Hm... It's 11 PM, and I have no work (again) tomorrow. I'll run until I feel like I need to sleep. And fights will be a good deal faster than talking, since it's something that DOESN'T require me to keep characters completely in character.
>>27307440I thought the TV was too small for us to go through.If this was the Persona 4 videogame, what would have choosing all cards mean? I figured having 'Coins' meant we get a shit ton of money to spend. What does taking the Deck mean mechanically? Is that something you can reveal, or will we find out soon anyway?How consistent will we be? Lets say cooking. I'm no great cook so I mostly cook fast, plain food. Sometimes I"ll look up a recipe and make something fancy like chicken francese (sp?). But I won't burn my food 45% of the time, set my house on fire 5% of the time and then make it extremely good somehow 5% of the time.
>>27307520>5% chance of setting your house on fireYou must be really, really bad at cooking.
>>27307520In order:You can squeeze through, uncomfortably. A bigger set would be a hell of a lot easier to pass through. Wouldn't you like to know. I'll try to keep consistent. If it's a basic dish, I won't even ask for a roll, but if you want to try your hand at something far more advanced, I'll ask for a roll. The first time was the "First crit success" bonus burning up.
>>27307561He's taking about d20 dice.
>>27307608Do we know how to make the ambrosia again without a roll?Because I'd totally want to remember how I made something like that.
>>27307634we wil probably have to make it a few more times and even then we would only get a bonus to rolling to make it
>>27307634Nope. Flash of insight, ect. Trial and error, though, could get you knowledge of it with time (and a high cooking skill, which I forgot to add to the sheet until now)
>>27307669Seems like everyone is set on checkin it out.Oh, can we ask him if recorders could work? Like bringing IN a camera. Or just recording the Midnight Channel
>>27307762Yeah, you can. >Writing
>you are the fourth person to check that out>fourth>FOURTHFULL MC PARTY CONFIRMED WHOO
You know, Dojima and Yu are being a bit irresponsible. What if the missing person thing happening, we should escort her to school.
>>27307762Recording the Midnight channel ain't gonna work. In the anime Yu abused the poor record button when Rise's shadow showed up. When he tried to play it back all he got was static.
>>27307963That's the anime. Even if thats true OOC its worth asking IC partly because Yu doesnt know it.
OP fall asleep?
>Check it outYou set down the sewing material, standing up and walking towards the door. "May as well see what's gotten them riled up." You say as you near it, looking for a handle. "Whoa whoa whoa!" The Shadow starts, standing up and following. "You ain't gonna try anything STUPID, are you? Those things don't care WHO you are, unless they're pretty damn powerful. Even then, it's a luck if they don't try to kill ya.""...What do you suggest, then?" You ask after a moment, looking to the Shadow again."Relax, let them eat the dumb bastard who ticked them off, and get back to sewing."You pause, looking the Shadow in the eye. "Ah, crap. You ARE too much like him." He says, sighing. "Know what? Fine. I'll even give you a hand, if ya want.""Just gimmie a second to get ready for this." The Shadow seems to head over to the corner of the room, rummaging though... Something. ...There's a lull. "Er... I've got a couple of questions, if you're able to answer them at the moment." You say, catching his attention."Shoot!" "First, if I bring anyone else in here, will a Shadow of them form and try to kill them? If so, can it be prevented?""Depends on tha' person." The Shadow replies, still digging through whatever it is he's searching. "A kid probably won't, since they don't have as much of a self-image built up yet. Anyone older, though? Whooboy. They sure will get a shadow to form for them.""The only way to keep 'em from getting killed by it is to get them to accept it, and their own faults."...That information sounds interesting. "Now, special cases, like yourself, either have something keeping their Shadow from forming, or have nothing hidden from themself. Not sure which you are."...More interesting.(1/2)
>>27308360(2/2)"Next question, then." You say, filing those tidbits away for later use. "Do you know if I could record inside of here with a phone or video camera or something?""Not a damn clue. Probably not, though." The Shadow seems to find his goal, standing up and brandishing... A pair of cheap glasses "HERE we go." He says, throwing them to you. "Found 'em a while back, and thought they might come in handy. .">...Thanks?>What do they do?>Write in
>>27308382Looks like we're about to be on..... The big screen>put on sunglasses and strike a pose
>>27308382"Cool, What do they do?">Put them on
>>27308382Thank your shadow and slap them on in a stylish manner. May I suggest in the style of Horatio Caine?I am pretty sure that if he wanted to kill Yu with glasses, he would have done it when he first saw him.Unless OP wants to amend my statement?
>>27308360>>"The only way to keep 'em from getting killed by it is to get them to accept it, and their own faults."Judging how the Shadow described itself, and what the Limousine guy said, I think Yu would know that Shadows are meant to make them confront their "Selves".>>"Now, special cases, like yourself, either have something keeping their Shadow from forming, or have nothing hidden from themself. Not sure which you are."Maybe we should tell him about our dream. What Philemon said, and that we just took the entire Deck. He may know something, anything.>...Thanks?>What do they do?>Tell the Shadow about our DREAM prior to coming here, and the Velvet Room.
Same person as>>27308454>What happens when someone accepts their Shadow?>What if I accepted Yu? If I can't, why?
>>27308382>"... useful? How so?" (as you don them)>>27308454I wouldn't tell him too much yet. He may be unwittingly working for, or controlled by, Nyarly. Or he may infer (correctly or otherwise!) that we ARE the real Yu that he's supposed to try to kill, and then do that.
>>27308454I just reread the first thread. That voice was Igor, not Philemon. >And across from you, you notice the source of that voice. A hunchbacked man with an abnormally long nose sits, hands clasped in front of his grinning face, in the middle of the bench at that end. >>27308512...Couldn't he even BE Nyarly?
>>27308512He can sense that we aren't, so I don't that would happen.>>27308454You forgot the most important question:>Is it masturbation if we had sex?
>So, thank him, question, and put them on?
>>27308614yeah sure why not
>>27308614Yes. All of these questions can be insightful. One can give an amusing answer/reaction.
>>27308614yeah, I think that's the gist of it
>Rolling for how bad the pun is, then.
>>27308454I want to tell him. We might get *some* kind of question out of the Deck and not being contracted thing.

>>27308564>...Couldn't he even BE Nyarly?Very possibly. I doubt it, but you never know...>>27308574>He can sense that we aren't, so I don't that would happen.Yeah, what I suspect is actually happening there is that something's either blocking his senses or Fooling them.Mostly because the Shadow being the one to deny the original would be _hilarious_.
>>27308867He seems to have knowledge on what we're "supposed to be like" though. Typical, canon Yu, which we are not.

>>27309114Ooooo he really doesnt want us to get this
Rolled 5Did anyone think maybe when he suddenly changed topics, we shouldnt have brought it up? Oh well. This should be interesting.
>Thank, questions"...Thanks, I guess?" You say, looking at the flimsy frames. "Anyway, thinking about it, I have a few more questions before we go out investigating." You continue, holding the glasses up. "First, what do these do?""Help you see better, dumbass." The Shadow replies, grinning. "There's some nasty fog out there. Those babies seem to make it easier to see through it.""...You couldn't have phrased it nicer, could you?" You mutter, before speaking up. "Alright, next. Ever hear of a place called the Velvet Room?"The Shadow seems to pause at that, and...Did he just FLICKER with static?"Nope." He says, looking at you VERY appraisingly, his voice sounding somewhat deeper than what passes for normal. "Sounds like a very cool club, though. Care to get me in?">19 v DC 17...You get a feeling that doing that would be a horrible idea, for some reason, and shake your head, causing the Shadow to sigh. "Anyway, ya ready to go?" The Shadow asks, his voice back to normal and no longer flickering with static. > ...What just happened?> Yeah, let's.> Write in

>>27309138> Yeah, let's.
>>27309138>Yeah, let's>...What just happened?What sort of tomfoolery was that?
I doubt OP will confirm or deny it, but maybe we ARE being protected, but only because we aren't contracted yet? We can ask Igor about our Shadow later.
>>27309138>> Yeah, let's.Don't fucking question it.
>>27309138>19 v DC 17So. Telling Shadow Yu about our supernatural encounters. Bad idea, or WORST idea?> Yeah, let's.No sense in waiting around; we've got a victim to rescue.
>>27309213Bad. Very bad. WORST is... Worse.
>>27309203You aren't being protected. Your shadow exists, but you haven't met it. Yet.That's what I'll say on the matter.
>>27309242Can we ask the other stuff unrelated to our dream/igor?LIke what happens when a Shadow gets accepted.
>>27309279Whoops. Forgot about that. Yeah, sure. >>27309274______Yet.____
>>27309138>>27309289>Yeah, lets.>....What just happened?Doesnt it mean another Yu Narukami exists?OP you should set like a 10-15 min time limit for votes. 6 people already voted anyway
That I should, but since this was short....Well, it'll be up within a few minutes.
>>27309138...Kay. Wasn't expecting static. I am hella wary about our shadow, but I'll give him some benefit of the doubt. I am still not sure he wants to kill us.Let's go with him and investigate TV world. With our pin needle.
>>27309242How does this Shadow Yu work then? does that mean there is another Yu walking around?
>>27309242... Hahahaha.We're in the wrong goddamn universe, aren't we.
>>27309375Maybe we can deduce how it works through investigation? I am hella curious about it, too.We should be careful not to treat shadow Yu like a toy.
>Yeah, let's."Let's..." You start, pulling your new glasses to your face. "Cast some light on this mess."...If you were in your world, you would say that you could hear crickets chirping in the silence."That... Was pretty damn bad. Glad you aren't ALL like the other me." The Shadow says, shaking his head. "Anyway, you look like you got another question. Shoot.""Alright," You start, heading to the door again. "What happens when someone accepts their Shadow?""That's the money question, buddy." He replies, following you. "Damned if I know. Worst case, the Shadow explodes, though."...That's encouraging. As the two of you reach the door, the Shadow taps it's side, causing it to crack open. "When I open this the whole way, we run like hell." He says, letting you get a look outside at the ruined suburb. "This place should be like your world, so you can find your way around easily.""The big mess seems to be in the center of the town, but I'm feelin' some stuff over that way, and over there."The Shadow points in the direction of the shopping district, then towards the path you took earlier to get to school. "Your call.">Center of town>Shopping District>Route to school

>Center of town>Athletics 17!Running through the streets of the darkened as fast as your legs can carry you, you dart past a number of black blobs with circular white masks, the humanoid Shadow traveling with you occasionally snapping his fingers as bolts of lightning fried those getting too close for comfort. After a few minutes, you turn the corner leading to the straightaway into town, and catch sight of something different from the real world down a side street out of the corner of your eye.Pointing that direction, you and the Shadow duck into an office building that seems safe, making your way though it carefully. ...Along the way, you notice a nice metal pipe sitting around that could serve as a decent weapon in a pinch.Picking it up, you and the Shadow eventually come to face the window on the other side, where, in the middle of the space the Junes is supposed to be, there's...A LARGE tiered pagoda, decorated in bright yellows and reds, with arches of a similar color leading to it. ...There also seems to be a nightclub on the rooftop? The hell is that doing in the mid-?>Notice 19!...You hear the sound of chains rattling from the floor above you, and the expression of the Shadow with you changes from one of some worry to outright panic.

>>27309983Does that mean "Hell Mode"? Surely we get some bonus material?Or...How much does our Deck help mitigate it compared to the other choices?
>RUNThe two of you smash through the glass door, running towards the path into the pagoda. As you run through the "door", a red and black portal, you take a look back, seeing a hulking shape looking at you from the floor above where you had taken refuge. You can't tell what it is, aside from Bad News. Stepping through, you find yourself and the Shadow in an open room. Tatami mats line the floor, and the walls look like something out of an old martial arts flick..."Damn, that was close." The Shadow with you says, panting. "I've seen that thing, or something like it, before, but never that close."> ....What was it?> Let's put that behind us and check this place out.

> Let's put that behind us and check this place out.Also, it seems that on some level, the Shadow itself doesn't want to acknowledge us as him. And he probably has a 'master'.

>Let's put that behind us and check this place out"Well, whatever it was, it's not catching us now." You say, offering the Shadow a hand up from his hunched over panting. "Want to see what this place is about?""Hell yeah! This is someone's dungeon! Imagine what sort of dark and dirty secrets we can figure out from this!" He says, getting a crazed grin. "Hell, I bet they're even still alive. Probably will be until the next time the fog goes away, too."He stretches, cracking his neck, before you hear a slight beeping noise in the room, coming from-...Your watch.Taking a glance at it, you see that, somehow, it's gotten to be midnight with all this running for your life.... "Er..." You say, watching as the Shadow stretches over enthusiastically, cracking its shoulders some. "I actually need to get back. I don't suppose you have a shortcut we could use?"The Shadow stops mid-stretch, before looking at you with a pleading expression. "Aw, it was just gonna get FUN, too." He says, starting to rub his chin in thought. "I guess we'll have to use one of these babies." With that, the Shadow pulls a white sphere, about half the size of his fist, from his jacket. "We smash it, and we get teleported back to home." He says, tossing it to you. "That's the only one I've got, though, so we need to finish up at this place the next time you drop in, unless you manage to find one somewhere in your world."You smash the object, enveloping both you and the Shadow in a coughing smoke.When it finally clears, you find yourself standing just inside the door of the same white room you appeared in the two times you've entered the TV world. You gather the sewing materials and say goodbye to the Shadow...=============>Wednesday, April 13th, 2011, 12:15 AMYou land less than gracefully when you exit the TV. ...Seems everyone is asleep. You decided to go to bed.
