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.>New addition to dice rulesIf someone wants to request a passive check, such as Notice, at least two other people must agree. Afterwards, I'll call for a check.>Previously...You slam into the Shadow, electricity from Izanagi coursing through it, and sending it tumbling away, shrinking until it's back to looking like Yosuke.It lets out a whimper as it sees you walking towards it.Looks like the beatdown was more effective than expected.>Actions?
>>27491738Intimidate it to be our minion.
>>27491738Yosuke you know what you have to do
Rolled 7 + 5>>27491835This, also I feel sad we won't get hot nurse as a social link
Tell Yosuke that it's time to come to terms with himself.
>>27491738Tell Brosuke to accept himself and keep our guard up.
>WritanProbably should put on more suitable music than Spooky Scary Skeletons, too.
Rolled 15Tell yosuke to accept himself, his shadow.
>Yosuke, I..."Hanamura!" You yell, continuing your walk and grabbing the Shadow, keeping it from running away. "Teddie should have told you this by now, but... You've got to accept this as part of you.""Yeah! If you don't, it'll go berserk again!" TeddieYosuke, no back on his feet, looks to the side. "Alright," He sighs, turning to face the fake. "Yeah...""Even though I'm ashamed of it, yeah, that's me." He steps forwards, nearing you and the Shadow. "All that, the boredom, the bad attitude... That's me, alright. You're me, and I'm you. " He finishes, placing his hands on the Shadow's shoulders as you release it. . ...You sense a change coming over the Shadow near you, as it begins to take a new shape, before descending to Yosuke's hand in the form of a glowing blue card...>You doing okay?>Ready to go save Chie, guys?
Rolled 4 + 5>>27492788>You doing okay?>Ready to go save Chie, guys?Why not both?
Rolled 12>>27492788>You doing okay?>Ready to go save Chie, guys?
Both! Keep up the momentum!
Rolled 8tell yosuke how to use a stand or persona.
Rolled 1>>27492788>You doing okay?

>>27493083Tonight's gonna be fuuuuuuuuuuuun...
For the love of...Turn off your dice, people. Stop getting me excited.>Also, if people want to toss up their own dialogue for Yum I'm happy to have it. Saves me work. >Writing
>>27492788"Hey Yosuke. Need a quick medical check-up?"An simpler way to combine the suggestions and let Yosuke exposit on what happened with him and Chie.
>>27492788"Everyone's got a side to them they they don't want to admit to, Yosuke."
>>27493331"And hey, if yours is anything like mine, now that it isn't trying to kill you, you'll get magic powers. That's worth the emotional trauma, right?"
>>27493206"Yosuke, try ro summon power from thyself and crush the card. Or something. No one questioning the fact that I got a fucking stand that shoots lightning?"
So many die and we're not even having to roll yet.
>>27492788Woohoo, we got the Disco Ninja Frog!>Ready to go save Chie, guys?
>>27493616Damn straight. Where's that fox, we need to refill on SP before we go.
>Why not both?You look over the state of Yosuke. Aside from a notable amount of exhaustion, he seems to be doing well."How are you doing?" You ask, patting Yosuke on the shoulder. "Looked like we wouldn't make it in time.""You mean aside from the whole coming to terms with the stuff I always denied about myself?" He asks, tone hollow. "Pretty good. He- I, I guess- kept me up since I got shoved in.""The hell shoved ya in anyway?" Kanji asks, walking up to the two of you. "Hell, the hell did you just do, Narukami?"Yosuke pauses, as Yukiko heads closer to listen in, too..."Alright... " He starts, looking at the three of you. "It started last night, when I was coming off shift at Junes." "I've been eying a TV in our electronics department for a while, and when I got there, Satonaka was looking at the same one." He continues, shrugging. "I figured that, you know, I'd make some small talk and stuff, but after a couple of minutes, the place felt cold.""Not cold, cold, but REALLY cold." He shakes his head as he sees you start to speak. "Shivers up your spine cold." "So the two of us started looking around, half 'cause of what you said earlier about the TV, half because we were scared out of our wits.""Then we saw... It. That clown-thing in the black suit, with the mask for a head. It laughed at us, and rushed, shoving me in. I hit that target up there when I landed, and Satonaka landed on me." He seems to rub his side as he says this. Looks like"We had like a minute to take a look at where we were before it showed up again, grinning. Then it shoved Satonaka off the side, and last thing I remember before waking up in this place was it slamming into me..." Yosuke finishes, shrugging. "Don't know what it was, but it was freaky."The group goes silent as they digest the information..."But that's bugging me too... What WAS that thing behind you, Narukami?">A Persona>Awesomeness incarnate>Write in
>>27493923Let's show him the mask we've got- see if that's the same as the thing he saw.Also, It's my persona.
>>27493923>>A Persona>>Awesomeness incarnateBoth, one after the other. It's really the best description we can give of the thing right now, anyway.
>>27493923>That clown-thing in the black suit, with the mask for a head.I'm not terribly familiar with Persona games before 3, but isn't that Joker from 2?
>>27493923>Awesomeness incarnatealternatively: our real identity
>>27493923A Stand...oh fine, persona.
>A Persona of course, the hypest shit since sliced bread.
>Explain and ask about the mask you have, hm?>Anything else?
>>27494016not quite- It sounds like the initial Joker Persona from 2, part of the Joker Curse.Which means we've got some chaos crawling around here spreading some nasty rumors in Inaba.
>>27494121Now that I think of it, we should ask Teddie about that mask too.>azluded consciousi think captcha's onto something
I wonder what would happen if we went public about personas. I mean the whole smt if thing which leads to persona seriea is that demons were known earlier than smt 1 canon, thus thor did not nuke the world.
>Persona, duh."That... Was basically a tamed Shadow." You say, knowledge coming to your mind instantly. "It's the same type of being, just being used positively, instead of being a hate machine.""And before you ask, I don't even know how I got mine. I just felt power coming from that card that Teddie gave me, and everything clicked." You shake your head. "I'm... Pretty sure anyone can get one, if they face their own Shadow, and accept it...""...Does that mean I've got a Stand now, too?" Yosuke asks after a brief pause. "Because I am totally fine with that."...Looks like he's a fan, too, you think, as you see Kanji nod as well. "Probably. " You shrug. "Give summoning it a shot. Focus on the card that you gained, and get it into your hand."You demonstrate, dismissing your card after a moment, and watch as Yosuke does the same, to your nod."One more question from me, then." You say, holding up the mask you claimed from that Not-Yosuke. "Was this what the jester-thing was wearing on its face?""Nope. That's too white. The jester's was orange and black." Yosuke shakes his head, looking at that. "Though that looks like the same material as its...""That's... That's not a Shadow's mask." Teddie say, cowering behind Kanji now. > ....Explain.> Write in
>>27494483Less talking more CHie finding
>>27494483> ....Explain.>While we start looking for ChieWalk and talk.
>>27494483Yep. It's the Joker infection. Great. So are we going to have to deal with Demons as well as Shadows?> Write in"Well, the thing I took it off of wasn't acting like the other Shadows, I just assumed it was because I'm new here. It looked like Yosuke, but with this weird saw blade/ hula hoop thing, and it shot wind blasts like Shadow Yosuke did. Any idea what that would be, friend bear?"
>>27494483>...Explain...and how do you know any of this stuff? Do sentient shadows hang out and drinks or shit?
>>27494483aw shit son we gon be fightin demons and shadows.Lets have Teddy explain while we walk.
>>27494667Time to get that demon summoning program.Peaceful days are over. Kill yours friends except your waifu. ...what? SMT is all about killing friends and fucking heronies.
>>27494805so does this mean powers outside the midnight channel?
>Explain while walking"Best if we get a move on," You say, shrugging and putting the mask back where you had stowed it during the fight. "Teddie, mind explaining while we walk?"He nods, and the five of you start to make your way out of the club, meeting surprisingly little resistance..."The thing I took it off of wasn't acting like the other Shadows, I just assumed it was because I'm new here. It looked like Yosuke, but with this weird saw blade-hula hoop thing, and it shot wind blasts like Shadow Yosuke did." You say, indicating the mask's location. "Any idea what that could be? And, uh, how do you even know all this stuff?Teddie seems to be deep in thought."I bearly know that it isn't a Shadow." He says, shaking his 'head'. "It smells wrong. Close, but wrong.""Why I know... I don't know." Teddie continues, shrugging as best he can. "I just think about something, and I know a buncha stuff about it."...That's not helpful at all. ========The five of you manage to make your way out of the nightclub, finding yourselves back on the roof of the pagoda. Yosuke seems to be deep in thought...>Ask him what's up>Write in
Rolled 16>>27494934>Ask him what's upKeep walking
>>27494934>Ask him what's upAnd then we look for entrances to the pagoda. There has to be something.
>>27494630Quit itIt's not funny or scary, Mitsuo is a fucking forgettable pushover
>>27495084Who had reason to be pissed at Yosuke and Chie, though....And us.
>>27495084His shadow was kinda tedious though. Fucking 8 bit knight...
>>27494934>ask him what's up
>>27495107What? He just hassled Yukiko, didn't he?Also>...Looks like he's a fan, too, you think, as you see Kanji nod as well.We should totally do picrelated
>>27494934>>27494934What youre thinking? You got wind powers but lightning wrecks your shit. Also, stay away, you got no wrapons.
>>27495107And if Nyarlathotep is in town and infecting people with the Joker virus, it's not entirely implausible that he's after us. And Nyarlathotep can create "Shadows" that are rather different from the P4 version. That would explain, I don't know, let's call him Reverse Yosuke. Or maybe Reverse Yosuke is just a Shadow from another universe, if it's an Eternal Punishment style parallel universe thing. That would explain why Shadow Yu thinks there's another Yu Narukami out there he needs to kill. Maybe both? Shadow Selves from the other world Nyarlathotep empowered as his agents alongside the Jokers?
>>27495229We're Reverse Yu.
>>27495138Yes. We shall be a JoJo-tastic Investigation Team. What are the most Araki of the alternate costumes that Golden gives? The Ouendan costumes, maybe?
>>27495138>The Investigation team stop for a nice relaxing POSE>S. Link up
>>27495255That is actually quite plausible. It explains why Shadow Yu isn't aggressive, we're the one who's supposed to be attacking him. And why neither Igor nor Izanagi have appeared to us, yet. I like your theory, sir. Though it still leaves many things left to explain. Well, we'll get more data and refine the model as the quest progresses.
>>27495337Igor did infact appear to us already just as usual during the 1st thread.
...Brilliant anon! Yu but not yu equal alternative universe which is nyalra is fucking around again with the amala network.
>What's up?"Hanamura, something on your mind?" You ask, turning to face Yosuke. "...Yeah. We need to find that thing and put a stop to it before it gets to anyone else." He says, shaking his head. "We can't let it run around loose, and we can fight it now, can't we?" Looking at the others, you see Yukiko and Kanji nod. "Yeah! That thing's runnin' loose, and could be attacking who knows who!" Kanji pounds his fist into his palm. "We need to smash 'im.""I agree," Yukiko says, nodding as she seems to be in thought. "If we can put a stop to this, we should."Teddie is oddly silent. >I agree. We need to end this.>No. We finish our rescue and work from there. >Write in
>>27494805P1/2 didn't involve friend-killingUnless YHVH and Lucifer are involved, we're safe from thatinb4 Shadow Yu is disguised Stephen
>>27495356Ah, so he did. I remembered it as just being a faceless voice, leaving it to interpretation who it was. Guess I remembered it wrong.
>>27495402>>No. We finish our rescue and work from there.
>>27495417Persona isn't mainline SMT.
>>27495439>True Reincarnation Mode
>>27495453YOOOO>>27495439Didn't Lucifer appear in Raidou games?
>>27495453No, I meant that the reason they didn't involve friendkilling like mainline SMT tends to was because they weren't mainline SMT. You don't expect Demikids to have friendkilling, either.
>>27495417>>27495439>>27495453igor was stephen the whole time>>27495402"We do need to end this. But right now, we need to focus on rescuing Chie and going from there."
>>27495402>No. We finish our rescue and work from there"Hold up. You saw how close Yosuke was to getting creamed by his shadow, we should try and find Chie as soon as possible. I'm sure we can find this black-faced clown after we've secured the safety of our friend"
>>27495402>Write in"One step at a time. First we find Chie and deal with her Shadow. Then we'll have another Persona in the party. Maybe we can get ones for Kanji and Yukiko if we run into their Shadows, too. And if anyone else has weird pseudo-Shadows like Yosuke did, we can gang up on them so we can interrogate them instead of it being a struggle to the death. We'll get resources and intel before we go actively hunting these things. We're dealing with monsters, I don't want to go into this half-cocked."
>>27495502>Igor is not Stephen.
>>27495274I pictured everyone on the team slapping on persona labels onto their clothing like Keicho and Okuyasu.Or Kanji makes letterman jackets for him and Yosuke and Yosuke is conflicted about the obvious jacket.
>>27495552All i know is, whatever we do, we put Teddy in his cheerleader costume at all times. Because that will make Yosuke and Kanji very uncomfortable, and I will laugh.
>>27495574Alice!Teddy is best Teddy.would totally otp
>So "Yes, but we should save Chie first"?
>>27495601Yeah, but we have to save that for the crossplay contest. It and the opportunity to hit on Yosuke during the speed dating cafe are the only good things in the end of October. Everything else is Teddie being creepy and Yosuke enabling him.You know, there are actually a lot of points in P4 where you can hit on your male party members. Yu is pretty much the hugest troll.
>>27495641Admittedly, I'd totally be okay with going bi for Kanji.
>end of the month>"Class, next week we are having a school trip to Tokyo!">ITBEGINS
>>27495707He is dreamy. Especially in the P4 Golden epilogue scene, where he's let his hair go back to its natural color, combed it down, and gotten some nice glasses. Quite a handsome devil, that Mr. Tatsumi.
>Alright, it's getting kinda late, and I need sleep.>I'm going to go now, and if this is still here when I come back, I'll toss up an update. Otherwise...
>>27496248>Sorry about this, by the way. I noticed the time after waking up from a light doze, so...>Better than crashing with no info, huh?
>>27496248>>27496289We aren't even 100 posts in. Keeping it from 404ing overnight shouldn't be too hard.
>>27496289Yep, it really sucks when you just up and leave
>>27496248Get some rest! I had fun tonight.
Finally caught up with the thread. Well, just have to wait a bit longer for it to start up again,
SOB, OP. You posted when I went to sleep.
Place your bets: What are the odds of this entire ordeal turning into friend killing simulator 2013?
>>27498941High.Also bumping from the last page.
>>27497518I believe in OP.
>>27498941I dunno, but it seems like the players are not rolling a bunch of ones like Bleach quest. And I am okay with that.I am still surprised my recon suggestion worked out.
>>27496248I will keep believing in OP.>>27495708>Getting Drafted into the Demonica Army
>>27498941>It's 2011Anyway, I've got like an hour or two now, and another couple after class, in about seven hours.
>>27502974...Hey OP, maybe we should do computer programming as a pastime.
>I agree. But Chie comes first. "You're right." You say, clenching your fist. "But we need to save Satonaka first." "Then, if things go like they did with Yosuke, we should have three Persona users, which should lighten the load of any fight. " You continue, walking to the place most likely to hold an entry ladder. "If we run into any not-Shadows like Hanamura had, we can get some answers instead of killing it outright."The others nod at that, before Teddie rustles in his... Whatever, storage pouch, producing a pair of yellow glasses and two blank, bone cards, much like the one you had until recently."Here!" He says, holding the glasses out to Yosuke and the cards to Yukiko and Kanji. "Maybe they'll work for you like they did for Sensei!"All three accept the offered objects with a nod, Yukiko and Kanji putting their new cards away safely, and Yosuke putting on his glasses."Whoa!" He says, looking around. "Man, these things clear up the fog a lot." ...Not much you can say to that except to nod agreement and continue searching.After a few minutes, you find an access hatch. >Head in?>Organize for this
Rolled 1>>27503029>Head in?
>>27503029>Head in?I wonder if Kenji's shadow will be the same as the game if he hadn't met Naoto yet.
>>27503065SO FUCKING GLAD HE DIDN'T ASK FOR A ROLL.
>>27503029We go ahead, Kanji stays in the back due to shield, Yosuke is in front of Kanji to be the mage to the tank, Teddie is behind us and Yukiko is in the middle due to having no persona or a good weapon/shield except for a knife. Teddie and Yukiko can switch places anyway. They the weakest members right now, so make sure they don't die.
>>27503029>Head in?DIVE DIVE DIVE
>Head in"Let's go." You say, cracking open the hatch and climbing in. The others follow shortly, and soon all of you are standing in... What appears to be a dojo, much like you'd expect from an old martial arts flick, that's devoid of life. Cracking open the door, you see an absence of Shadows down the tatami-lined hall, and a staircase heading down at the end of it. >Write in
Rolled 2>>27503247"Smells like a trap, I'll go ahead you guys cover me."
>>27503247"Five hundred yen says the tatami are covering pressure plate traps. Yosuke, if your Shadow was anything to go by you should have wind powers. Think you can blow the mats away so we can check them from a distance?"
>I'm guessing you want to make a Notice check?
>Give me a d20.
Rolled 9>>27503498Rolling since >>27503500 wasn't linked properly
>It's a trap."...This is too suspicious." You say, looking around the empty dojo. "There's probably some sort of trap under those mats."The others nod as they look past you. Eying it over, you look for the obvious traps- places where spikes would jet out of the walls, darts to fly from the ceiling, and so on... >Notice 16!...There's nothing. The hall seems like there's nothing nasty waiting to stab you."...Yosuke, mind trying to send a blast of wind down there?" You ask, turning to face the only other person in your group with a Persona. "If you've got any powers like your Shadow, you should be able to...""Oh, yeah." He says, summoning the card. "I'll give it a shot. JIRAIYA!"The frog-in-a-jumpsuit appears as he crushes the card, and within a moment, a blast of wind is sent down the hallway, tossing around the tatami and leaving the place a mess....No pressure plates.>Write in
>Right, I need to go now. >I'll be back in a few hours. You know what to do.
Rolled 1>>27503754Okay, let's continue
>>27503754Oh well, Keep on your toes, Let go Perv Sensei.
>>27503754"Well, better safe than sorry. Let's get a move on."
>>27503754"Huh. Okay, guess I'm just being paranoid. But I will be sorely disappointed if ninja Shadows don't hop out of concealed doors to ambush us at least once while we're in here. What's the point of theming the Shadow lairs after the target's personality quirks if it's just set dressing?"
>>27503065>>27503303>>27503794Turn off your fucking dice when he isn't asking for a roll.
>>27503923It seems like unprovoked dice rolls anger the dice gods, given the sort of rolls they produce. I think that should be taken as a sign to stop.
>>27503954Or maybe he's rolling the 1s out.
Kinda wish we used D100s, with 1 as crit fail and 100 as crit pass. 1 on a single D20 is 5%. With 5#1d20? 22.62% of rolling a 1. Same with a 20, which makes a 45.24% chance of having a crit fail or crit pass. (19/20)^5
>>27504588Actually, to get a 1 OR 20 on 5#1d20 is 40.95%. 22.62% chance to roll a 1 on 5#1d20 is correct, though.>>27504703Your post is boring.
>>27504749I'm saying that it's not that uptight kind of game where having rare crits matters
>>27504833>True Reincarnation ModeThe game doesn't have to be uptight to point out that the current system is pretty whack.
>>27505261Eh, uptightness leds to SMT games, death, then restart and then pray for the RNG gods to not instant kill you.
GoldenOP, Can we go public with Stands and shit? I mean, there no reason not to tell uncle once we save chie and yosuke.I mean, why not?
>>27506720There's a strong suspicion that Dojima may be the killer. OOC. We've apparently only figured out 2 out of 6 things, but they're clearly things only people who played the game would really get immediately.
Y'know, after looking over some of the conversations in P4 again, I think every character in the party is hot for the MC.
>>27506999Scratch that. I meant every character in the game.Barring a couple of people.
>>27506797There's no in-character reason for us to suspect Dojima right now. He had an alibi for Mayumi Yamano (not to mention no reason to want to kill her), and as far as Yu knows the thing that's throwing people in is a monster of some sort. Meanwhile, Uncle Dojima is a police officer and we have tangible proof as to how the murder was committed. Well, maybe not that, but we can prove the Midnight Channel is a real thing, so that's at least enough to start him investigating the right train of thought.At the very least, if we don't tell Dojima, I'd like to show Naoto the moment we develop enough trust in her skills. We've already gotten Kanji way early, let's try to do it with every party member as soon as we can. While we're at it we should start eating at Marukyu now, just to have a legitimate reason to be hanging around there when Rise shows up.
>>27507089OP has made it clear he is willing to fuck us over for not noticing or going around things OOC and acting on it.
>>27506999I don't think Kanji is into the MC. They just make cuddly toys together. Yosuke is super gay for Yu though.
>>27507199"You're starting to look beautiful...""Man, do you work out, Senpai? Can I touch your chiseled abs...?"And those are only a couple of the things Kanji says to the MC during a dungeon.
>>27507256Kanji is my husbando....
There no reason why NOT to tell uncle or just go out and tell the public. Fuck the maskerade, The sooner that shit goes away, the less chance of a SMT 1 react happening.
>>27507568Mass panic is something that we do not want. Along with that, there's also the level of sheer disbelief. Without the disappearances of Yosuke and Chie, Kanji and Yukiko probably wouldn't believe us or give us a chance.
>>27507602Yeah, but better to have panic now, than to have panic while demons are going to nuke humanity.
>>27507169This is the only reason going for Dojima is not a good idea.
>>27507658As bad as it sounds, I'd rather the rest of humanity remain blissfully ignorant of the happenings around them while the Investigation Team goes about fighting this shadow war. Mass panic wouldn't be good for anyone, or safe. Mass public hysteria could lead to a government step-in, which could lead to martial law, curfews, and IFV's in the streets--all things which would severely curtail our ability to move around and operate.
>All this discussion>MFW>So, continue down the hallway in the citadel of kung-fu?
>>27508003Same reasoning as mine. This is not the kind of thing we need spreading because it will only make things worse without anything getting better whatsoever. There's alot of downsides that actually will happen with VERY little potential for good results, especially with how OP has outright stated how hard he's going to be making all of this.>>27508050[X] Continue.[X] Also start considering how to marry all of your party members.
>>27508050ContinueOP. Throw us a bone about Dojima? Lots of people want him because it's an awesome idea. But some people are (rightfully) paranoid.
>>27508319That I can do. >Dojima is not the culprit. That good enough?
>Continue"Well, we checked..." You say, signaling everyone to start walking. ...You make it to the stairs without incident, and everyone heads down. =====You find yourselves in another hall, lined with tatami mats like the first... At the end, there's a crossing with yet another hallway. >Left>Right>Straight>Look around, then [Direction] (Roll 1d20 for notice)
>>27508388BUT HE COULD BE AN ACCOMPLICESHADOWRUNS LEVEL: MGNQ!
Rolled 18>>27508417>>27508417Look around, decide afterwards.
>>27508449dont you fucking dare mention that questor any quest that has little girls otherwise known as lolis
>>27508482But all the main characters in MGNQ are teens. And the protagonist is probably far past that due to time loops.
>>27508517Yes the small breasts and magic make it extra sophisticated
>Look around>18!Straight ahead of you, you can see a gathering of Shadows... Vaguely humanoid in appearance, but generally indistinguishable from each other. Must be the 'monks' inhabiting this place. To the left, you see a dead end, with a number of weapons hanging on the wall. The right leads to a door. >Choose
>>27508585Left. Get Yosuke equipped. Then right (from our current position).
>>27508585grab a weapon from the trapped weapons rack and give it to yosuke then go down to where the scrubs are
>>27508585Another for left. We need to get Yosuke geared up and maybe grab a backup weapon for ourselves after our run in with the oddly intelligent 'Yosuke' Shadow.
>>27508388But...is he an accomplice?!
>>27508449>>27508655Fine, fine. One more freebie.>Dojima is currently only involved as an investigator into this mess.
>>27508585Left.OP, what do you think about the fact that there's about a 23% chance for a 1 to be rolled? Will we be able to get things to lessen it?
>>27508702I think that it's awesome. A later Fortune perk will offer a negation of a natural 1, on a per-thread basis, as well.
>>27508699Fuck yes. Lets get Dojima involved in this.
>Left for weapons"We head left." You whisper, gesturing for the others to follow. Arriving at the rack, Yosuke seems to understand what the plan is, and grins."Getting me something to kick ass with, huh?" He asks, reaching for a pair of nunchucks.Taking them off the wall, he starts spinning them overdramatically. ...>Stop the idiot before he gets himself hurt>Let it play out
>>27508961Give him the look
>>27508961>Stop the idiot before he gets himself hurt"Careful. Those are weapons, and we're about to get ourselves in a real fight. You want to injure yourself."
>>27508961>Let it play out.Be ready with suggestions/first-aid when he cracks his kneecap.
>>27508961Give him THE LOOK.Also grab ourselves a good backup weapon.
>>27508961>>Stop the idiot before he gets himself hurtAlso get a new short sword since our other one broke.
>>27508961>Let it play outIf he gets himself hurt, it's his own doing.
>>27508961>>Stop the idiot before he gets himself hurt
>>27508961Looks like we've got a badass here...
>>27508961>Stop the idiot before he gets himself hurtDon't chose a weapon that you have no idea how to use
>>27508961>Stop the idiot before he gets himself hurt"Yosuke. No. No nunchucks. Get something sharp. If you want to be fancy you can take some sais or something.
Would it be possible to rescue the third person in here?
>>27509277What third person? Chie and Yosuke are the only ones to have gone missing so far. Saki's probably back home right now. She won't get thrown in for another day or two.
>>27509334I think he means the announcer chick. But pretty sure she's long dead regardless.Shadow Yu's still around here somewhere too I believe.
>>27509334It would appear that I misunderstood a line from the fourth part.>"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. This made me believe that there were three people in the shadow world. Specifically the 'seems to be in the center of town...feelin' some stuff over that way, and over there.' line.
>>27509190No Nunchucks, maybe later when you get some freaking training.
>>27509515That's actually even worse, then. Three areas of disturbance, but Chie's and Yosuke's dungeons are right on top of each other. And Junes is near the center of town, which with the double-dungeon could explain the "big mess". But those other two points of interest... Well, the shopping district is probably Saki, then. But who was down the other path?
>Stop the idiotSighing, you reach out and catch the nunchucks before Yosuke can hurt himself with them."No. Just no." You say, shaking your head as you take them from him. "Get something that doesn't rely on you being lucky enough to not hit yourself with it, instead."Silent nods come from the rest."Awww. I thought they looked cool." Yosuke sighs, before taking a pair of large knives from the rack. Glancing over it, you find a replacement shortsword for yourself, sheathing it in the empty scabbard your old one was in. Heading back to the corner, you need to decide...>Towards the Shadows>To the door
>>27509591Hm...? Are you wanting to know who was down the other path?
>>27509598>Towards the ShadowsIf you leave them they'll just stab you in the ass later.
>>27509620Wouldn't hurt if you're willing to say.>>27509598[X] Shadows. Let's knock some heads.
>>27509620Yes, but it can wait until after Chie's safe. We're not the Investigation Team yet, we're just a group of friends trying to survive in this crazy nightmare dreamworld.
>>27509598>>To the doorDon't we have some time to save the other person anyway?
>>27509598Let's bust some Shadows. We need XP.
>>27509598Towards the shadowstake out the mooks, then rush the boss."Yosuke, if you want to use nunchucks, get some training. Bruce Lee said it one of the hardest weapons to master. I think nunchucks might suit you, just a feeling.
>>27509643Oh-ho-HO!I suppose I sha->>27509668...Fine, fine. This can wait, then...
>>27509716Meant to quote>>27509654As you can guess, this is one of my beary few screw ups.
>>27509747you mean beary cub screw ups.
>>27509620I would like to mention that there might be other people here. I say we go rescue them after this if possible. It would fit to have the fog lift tonight to get the most drama/reaction from us if we don't rescue them now.
>>27509716Hey General, just an idle question, feel free to ignore it if you don't want to answer: If we were to take your offers would Yu know about it? You're listed as a Social Link of his, but you've never actually interacted with him, just the audience. Would our getting the answer from you also give Yu the knowledge out of the aether?
>>27509809>>27509809Why anon, yu is not yu.Yu is anon. He is simply not aware. He not yu because it not in a game but a quest.
>>27509809General Bear never said we had to pay something back. And that was over a roll before, something explicitly separate from the narrative. Only thing I can think of is him about to fuck up and then the General aiding him somehow.
>>27509809This one is on the house. Yu would, as he is wont to do, pull a fragment of the knowledge from the Sea of Souls. In this case, that someone else is in here. In other cases, it would perhaps vary... As for knowing him, you could say we've met.
>>27509885Thank you for the clarification, General. Much appreciated.

>>27511462Team up with Yosuke to take out the Shadow harassing Yukiko, then help Kanji.
>>27511462Help Yukiho while telling Yosuke to help Kanji. Whoever finishes first helps Teddie if he needs it.
>>27511462Would Yu know enough to use Rakukaja on any allies having trouble, or are buff spells something he'll need to level up magic to unlock? If he can use it, buff Yukiko and Teddie. If not, stay mobile and look for targets of opportunity, like when we tag teamed that shadow with Kanji in our first fight. That was fun.
>>27511556>You need more magic to use buffs.
>So, help Yukiko?
>>27511653Nah, Yosuke can help her. I want to help the adorable bear.
>>27511653Help Yukiko by attacking hers on our own and use Izanagi to help Teddy, tell Yosuke to give Kanji a hand.

"Help Amagi!">18!Rushing forwards, you bring your sword up in a diagonal slash, bisecting the Shadow and causing Teddie to fall over, off balance from his missed attack. Turning to check on the others, Yosuke is spinning the two knives he's taken around, the Shadow assaulting Yukiko now another mess of smoke, while Kanji is blocking a kick from the survivor. >Write in

>>27512213Fortune, cant afford to fail here.
>>27494630Goddammit, I was supposed to post that!
>>27512302Well actually, we kinda can. It's not a do or die. But it does refresh one per thread and we haven't used it yet, so might not be bad to use it on this one. Our highest roll was a 6 though, so that'd only be 13 tops.
>You want to Fortune?>>27512340Remember, Awakened makes it best FOUR of five.
>>27512293>>27512293No...plz ;~;>assumed peoon
>>27512340No, having a Persona means we take first four. So our highest roll was nine, giving us a sixteen if we used Fortune.
>>27512366Ah, right. My mistake.So that'd be 9+7(Fortune) for 16 then. Yeah, what the hell.[X] Use Fortune.
>ZioThis has gone on long enough, you think, as Izanagi begins to crackle with electricity again. >9>Fortune! +7!>16!The bolt impacts on the Shadow, turning it into a smoking mask on the floor. "Man, that was close..." Kanji says, brushing his shirt off. "You nearly got me with that."

>>27512725Thanks as always for quest, OP.
>Feel free to discuss your theories, by the by. Usually, I'm planning to run the next day, and want to have the pic available when I post it.
So after we save Chie, where do we go from there? Picking up clues on who the killer is? Find Naoto and wait for Rise to show up? Build Social Links with Yukiko and Kanji?
>>27512900I still stand by my previous statement of 'ditch school and explore the TV world.' To that end, I suggest that we toss everyone else outside once Chie is rescued and go see what shadow Yu is up to.
>>27512960Do we really wanna be exploring the TV World alone? What if those Shadows try to gang up on us?
>>27513047Think we should drag the bear along? It may be hard to sneak around with his squeaking.
>>27513098I was just thinking we could lay off the adventuring in the TV world for awhile, rest up, and then march back in there with our four friends when we're ready.
>>27512960No, what we really need to do is join a sports club!
>>27515162No, what we should do is take a break from adventuring and get a job.We're broke, remember?
>>27515299I still think that we should get a job at the smithy. Bitches love blacksmiths.
>>27515305In a little town like this? Yeah, no.
I wonder if we will attempt the rainy day challenge in this quest?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IG_3jCkKBAU
>>27515305Smith wasn't looking for more hands, and we'd need to be apprenticed anyway.Now, there is a spot open for the gas station.
>>27519461That Boss relationship.
>>27508530The magic shenanigans and awesome writing/art do.
>>27519461...We should totally try and seduce her ASAP. Having a literal goddess on our side should be useful, after all.
>>27519802We'd have to see if she's even there. And didnt she disguise herself as a guy?
>>27519832Daidara mentioned a looker working there.So, unless he's into guys....
