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.>Currently>Talk to DojimaYou nod, heading over and taking the seat across from him."Sorry about being so late..." You say, rubbing the back of your head. "I got caught up talking to my coworker." Dojima shrugs."I know how it is." He says, standing up. "Believe me, I've gotten caught up talking to Adachi a few times."He retrieves a glass of water, and then sits down again."Anything specific you wanted to talk about?">Yes [Write in]>No
>>28808126>Also, I need 5d20, please. Notice checks, after all.
Rolled 5, 2, 9, 2, 16 = 34>>28808126Any new leads, or persons of interest who might be able to help? Minako has been pretty damn helpful, I'm glad you introduced her to us.
Rolled 3, 3, 15, 5, 12 = 38>>28808187>Yes"Do you know where Adachi is most of the time?"
Rolled 3, 9, 17, 7, 10 = 46>>28808187rolling
Rolled 8, 8, 19, 6, 4 = 45>>28808187
Rolled 1, 5, 14, 6, 7 = 33>>28808187pretty shitty rolls, guys
>Looks like "asking for more leads/where is Adachi" is the plan...>>28808721>Eh. Not as bad as it could be.
You fall asleep GoP?
>>28810046Nah. Distracted by animal upkeep. >Finishing up.
>>28810070I understand. Too many goddamned animals here.
>>28808126Did he change his habits about leaving Nanako home alone?
TONIGHT...YOU...SORRY, I GOT NOTHING TONIGHT.
>>28812112it will only happen when the SL is high enough
Did GoP get eaten by animals?
>>28812602dude's probably asleep. He tends to fall asleep midthread.
>>28813723>midthreadThis isn't midthread though. GoldenOP is silly.
>>28813735Let me correct myself then, he tends to fall asleep whenever the fuck, just right fucking there, still at the keyboard.
>>28813967Yeah, I know. I half expected it anyways.
>>28813967You'd think he'd at least get out a second post before dying...
>>28813967Let me correct myself AGAIN, actually. He might be getting food or something. Because he does that without saying anything a lot too.
While we're waiting for next post, let's talk about Persona or something. I'm starting another playthrough of P4G and I'd forgotten how hilariously easy the newgame+ perks make it. It almost feels unfair for me to be ruining the early bosses SO HARD with Yoshitsune like this.
>>28814186P2 was the best gameP4 a shitP3 made the combat bearableP1 is okay.Chie a shit, Yukiko a shit, Yukari a shit, Fuuko has an annoying voice, Ginko is a confirmed slut, ken is a teamkilling asswipe and Shinji is olev.
>>28814224>P4 a shitBut you're wrong, because all the persona games are good.
>>28814224>>28814307P4 has best gameplayP3 has the best ostP2 has the best storyP1 has the best black people
>>28814963>>28814307>>28814224>>28814186Thou I admit i haven't played all personas my favorite one base on what i have seen is P3
>>28810070GOP I do find you a bro but you need to learn that the keyboard is for tipping and the bed is for sleeping, not the other way aroundalso I saw you ate F/SAQ, is it good? should I start to read the Archive?
>>28816648Read it.Pretty damn good.Also, This Bike This Bike This Bike
>>28816648>I saw you ate F/SAQWhat>>28816682Steel is my body and fire is my blood and fire is my body and I'm on fire oh god
...In my defense, my initial tweet DID say I was likely to fall asleep.
>More leads and Adachi"Well, yeah. Know anyone else who might be of help?" You ask, getting a surprised look from Dojima. "Miss Arisato basically got everyone trained in using our Persona abilities quickly, and if you know someone else who could help out, past that difference in summoning methods..."... He nods. "I could put out a few feelers." He says, shrugging. "The problem is, there's only one other person in the department who knows anything about this stuff, and he's not generally the most sociable of fellows.""Anything you can find would help, at this point. We've only got a few leads in that world, after all. We may as well get better at using our Persona while we hunt around for more." You shrug. "Though that's not really counting the stuff like that well, or the mines..."...Dojima seems to be in thought... "I'll see if there's anyone in the know around, then." He says finally. "Maybe there's someone in a nearby town, or something...""Thanks then."You reply. There's a pause... "So, do you know where Adachi can be found usually?""Oh, yeah. He's usually at the station with me, or I have him running errands." Dojima says, rubbing his chin as your question seems to click. "Really, if we want to let him in on this supernatural stuff, it'd probably be best to do it here, after Nanako's gone to bed."You nod. ...Anything else?>Yes [Write in]>No
>>28818968>noKatsuya confirmed? I can't think of any other cops, and I don't recall him being the most sociableKatsuya confirmed
>>28818968I don't think there anything left to talk about. Lets just head to bed
>>28819167>It isn't him.
>>28819231Naoto best girl and best detective.
>>28819231>Nope. >So, "No/Go to bed"?
>>28819334>No/Go to bed
>>28819308Parrot is my 2. 3 in this quest
>>28819334lets go to beddon't wanna get sickbut if we do get sick maybe Minako will swing by to take care of us
>>28819407Maybe another time
>No, go to bed. "Well, I'm wiped." You say, shaking your head and standing up. "I'll talk to you in the morning."With that, you head upstairs and go to bed....>Friday, April 29th, 2011, 6:30 AM...You woke up early again. Heading downstairs, it seems that Dojima has already left...>Lunch, then breakfast? [2d20]
Rolled 16, 14 = 30>>28819521>dicdI'm an idiot
Rolled 2, 17 = 19>>28819521Too bad Minako is never around to see our cooking prowess
Rolled 10, 13 = 23>>28819574Let's leave early and bring her lunch, she might be feeling sick still
>>28819585Whoops, didn't mean to roll. Already rolled
>>28819585that sounds like a planI hope we roll a 20 here...
Rolled 7, 15 = 22>>28819521Kay
Rolled 7, 17 = 24>>28819521TIME TO BUUUURN OUR BREEEADMake note to never sing this in front of Minako, she might know that it was "his" favorite song or something
16 and 17 ain't too bad
Rolled 7, 15 = 22>>28819521last roll/
>Cook!You set to work, preparing the lunches as usual. Setting the boxes aside again, you move onto preparing breakfast as Nanako comes downstairs. The two of you eat breakfast fairly quickly, and are out the door and on your way to school soon enough....After dropping Nanako off, you make it to the gates of your school a bit early again.>The roof>Classroom>Other
Rolled 5, 18 = 23>>28816707I was really sleepy>>28819521Rolling
>>28820217>The rooflets se if we find the afro hair dude to check on the rumors
>>28820361Let's tell him we saw Hitler in the mines
>You really want to check on Rumors?
>>28820492start a rumor that Yu can get any girl he wants
>>28820520We should tell him mjonir is real and that we saw Thor walking around the shopping center
>Roll me 1d20, I suppose. >>28820520>>28820552>Being that highly implausible will impose a big penalty if you want him to spread those rumors...
Rolled 9>>28820603fineparty pooper
>>28820603>Being that highly implausible will impose a big penalty if you want him to spread those rumors...No no. Please. No. Just ignore anything that's unfunny and stupid.What's the roll for?
Rolled 13>>28820603I was kidding about Thor anyways
>>28820630>I know, I know.>The roll is for Reasons.
Rolled 16>>28820640Don't kid. There's people in this and other threads that"ll think it's so whacky and hilarious that we must go with it. Eventually the quest gets drowned in retautists.>>28820603No roll for spreading those.Though, can we trade numbers? Tell Afro he can't say much, but it's extremely important. Tell him to give us a call if he sees someone like Mitsuo?
Rolled 9>>28820630Not everything is serious you know>>28820603Here
>>28820682How would we know who mitsuo is
>>28820701>You've met him, learned his name, and know he's a suspect. >I still need one more roll, by the way.
Rolled 12>>28820787There's your roll
>>28820787Oh, i was thinking of someone else. Damn jap soundalike names
>>28820701You're new to this quest, huh?We fought him, we saw him. We know his name.Also, this is True Reincarnation Mode--which is Hell mode with some special stuff. This means the GM isn't pulling punches. First time we went in TV World and explored, Reaper showed up. So, it's okay to mess around a bit. But don't intentionally suggest retarded things when it can bite us in the ass, because it will.
>>28820844No, I just confused the name with Mitsurus
>>28820867Oh! Yeah. I've done that a few time myself.
>Roof, rumormongering. You shrug, heading up to the roof. On the third floor, you see the funky student you spoke to yesterday, and gesture upwards. He nods, and follows you...."So, what's up?" He asks, looking at you. "Need something?""What rumors are floating around?" You asks, shrugging. "I had time to kill, so I thought I'd ask."He rubs his chin for a moment in thought..."Well... I've heard a few. We only got a couple of minutes before classes start, so.. What kind do you want to hear?">Rumors about relationships>Rumors about places>Rumors about individuals>Other
>>28821216>>Rumors about individuals
>Alright, I'm gonna be off and on for the next few hours. >I'll be back later, though.
>>28821216>>Rumors about individuals>Rumors about placesAsk about relationships if it isn't sappy girl-boyfriend stuffBring up Mitsuo. Like in a..."I shouldn't be saying this since I kinda overheard it by eavesdropping buuut..." Then tell him to not let that spread
Rolled 19>>28821216gonna go with individuals
>>28821216>>Rumors about places>>Rumors about individualsIs golden still alive?
>>28821216>Rumors about individuals>Rumors about relationshiptrying to keep the thread alive
Did op sleeped
>>28827308Signs point to probably.
>>28827308Hey, GoldenOP just hopped online. He'll be posting shortly. GoldenOP> Go tell them that I just got on IRC, pls<LargeLeader> Who?<GoldenOP> My thread<GoldenOP> Quote the second to last person
>Individuals"Hear anything about specific people?" You ask, getting a nod in response. He's in thought for a moment. "Well... I heard that Mr. Mooroka isn't really that bad, if you talk to him." He says, rubbing his chin. "A girl in one of his classes got called to his office for a 'Private talk', and he actually gave her some advice, instead of chewing her out like she expected." ...That jerk? REALLY?"Yeah, I was surprised too, but after talking to her myself, she said he told her to follow her dreams." Looks like your reaction to that was obvious. "He's still a jerk otherwise, though."...Huh. You're considering that for a moment, when the bell rings. Better hurry to class.....At lunch, you head up to the roof. ...Kanji is sitting there, and seems to be shoving something small into his bag as you look out of the door."Oh, uh, hi Narukami." He says, looking around nervously. "How are you doin'?">Write in
>>28828591What was that, kanji? Some kind of doll? You should help me make one for Nanako
>>28828591Hey Kanji what's up?
>>28828591Ask him how it's going and inquire about what bag
>>28828591"Hey, Kanji. How are you?"
>>28828591ask what that was, also general greetings
Op pls dont fall sleepysleepy
>What's in the bag, Kanji?"Yo." You say, giving him a wave as you walk over. "What's in the bag? Love letter to someone?" Kanji sputters. "The hell, Narukami?" He asks, looking at you as you start to chuckle. "That ain't funny." You shrug. "Eh. Got a rise out of you, though." You say, grinning. "But really, what's in the bag that you hid so hastily?"...Kanji sighs, and pulls out what appears to be a small doll, a needle, and thread."Sorry 'bout hidin' it so quickly..." He says, shaking his head. "Thought it was Yosuke or someone."You nod at that. "So, one of your pieces?" You ask, extending a hand to take a look at it. "Looks a lot better than the one I'm working on.""Eh... I've only been working on it between classes." He says, rubbing the back of his head. "It ain't the best, but..."You hand it back shaking your head. "Again, a lot better than the one I'm making." You say, glancing to the roof door. No one yet. >Write in
>>28830672Maybe you could give me some pointers later? Consume lunch
>>28830672Obviously we need to bring ours to school tomorrow.If the others see Yuu doing this, they won't give Kanji any ribbing (not like I think they would anyways) and Kanji will be more relaxed about doing it in the open."If I bring mine tomorrow, could you show me how to do it better?"
>>28830672"Hey, man, you keep it up. I'm serious. You hungry? We could dig in early and laugh at the others for arriving late."
>>28830672Suggest that he should probably join a club, he's pretty talented at this.And also what this guy >>28830736 said
>>28830672How about we ask him for some pointers. No shame in getting some help so what we make for Nanako isn't crappy.
>So, pointers, club, and "look at mine tomorrow"?
>>28830868Pretty much, yeah.
>>28830868Correct.Gold go to bed
>>28831005Are you going to fall asleep?
>>28831029Why would you even ask him?
>>28831029Not just yet. >Give me 1d20 for Charm, by the way.
Rolled 12>>28831135lets do this
Rolled 7>>28831235>Char of '08>Rolled 8
>>28831235... "Char 08".>Last two numbers add up to 8>Rolled 8
>>28819167>>28819200I'm still betting it's Katsuya.Only other high-ranked cops out there who are aware of supernatural are Akihiko, who's too young for that yet and that guy who sold weapons to kids in P3, but he's just a beat cop, and also he kinda never really matters
>>28831394He said no. Also, akihiko became a cop? That some golden thing?
>>28831394>True. Reincarnation. Mode.>It isn't Katsuya. And it's 8 years too early for two potential cops, too. >>28831408>It's a -trinity soul- thing.
>>28831419Was that the really fucking bad anime
Rolled 9>>28831456pretty bad
>>28831467Yeah, didn't watch it. I guess akihiko does strike me as a cop kinda person
>>28831419It's not saying much except that you can twist the plot anc characters however the shit you like, which I'm already taking into considerationI'm inclined to say you're lying to stop the hype, but I still believe youWell we've got a bunch of characters from first two games who might fill the bill, and that's not counting a few obscure as shit ones, so I'm just gonna stop speculating altogether
>>28831529>It actually isn't a character from one of the games.>It's just a police officer who's seen enough weird shit to accept that as a possibility and roll with it.
>>28831593Well, okay then.
>Pointers, club, poke at my work tomorrowYou shrug. "I bet the Home Ec. club would love to have you." You say as he puts away the small doll. "Given any thought to joining them?"Kanji shakes his head. "Nah. They wouldn't want me there, anyway." He says with a sigh, looking off to the distance. "I mean, I'm th' big delinquent-guy, after all.">Charm 15!"With thinking like that, of course they won't!" You say, catching Kanji's attention. "Take the chance to join them! Hell, if you're nervous about it, just say you thought that you'd help a friend out by getting them a discount on supplies. I'm sure you could convince Yukiko or someone to join for your sake, after all."...Kanji seems to be in thought..."Anyway, willing to give me advice and look over my work tomorrow? I'll bring it with me.""Yeah, sure." ...Kanji seems a bit distracted in his response, and you can hear the sound of the others arriving....The five of you eat lunch in relative silence.As usual, you finish first, and set your box to the side.>Talk about something?
>>28831656Anyone ever feel like they're being stalked? Particularly near the shrine?
>>28831656Ask if he likes any girlsIf he says no, ask if it's a matter of none of the girls fulfilling his particular tastes, or "something else". Use air quotes with that.
>>28831656Did we contact Minako about Yosuke and Chie's summoning problems?I wanted to know how they think about shooting themselves in the head
Rolled 19>>28831812No.nononono.Their 'problem' is that they accepted their shadows in the TV world. Yukiko and Kanji's came to them by themselves.And Igor already said that a person who has already accepted their shadow should not use an invoker as there will be terrible consequences.
>>28831772Yeah, lets talk about their love lives, and maybe shift the topic to mitsuo
>>28831860Except OP said that "DO NOT USE EVOKERS" think applies to Yu only. It might actually help Chie and Yosuke to summon personas in the real world
>Alright, it's late enough I really need to crash. >I'll try to continue this for a bit tomorrow evening, though, if it's still alive. Probably around 4-12, Eastern, based on my schedule. >I'll leave you with this picture.>>28831860>He said YOU, SPECIFICALLY, shouldn't. >It probably would help Yosuke and Chie, as >>28831909 says.>If they get past the whole "Shooting yourself in the head" thing.
>>28831928I'd fuck nyarly
Rolled 5>>28831909Stand corrected. Remembered wrongly.>>28831928laters
>>28831945I bet Nyarly would be a monster in the sack.
>>28831945>>28832058.... Why am I unsurprised?
>>28832121He's a handsome motherfucker, man. Even if I'm not gay.Maybe a little bi for him though
>>28832121I was trying to make a bad joke, but are you really telling me you wouldn't crawl over his chaos?
So, things took longer than expected.Any questions as I'm on the way home?>Also, action?
>>28841037I'm still voting talk about romance and lead into questions about mitsuo
>>28841533I forget, what exactly do we know about Mitsuo?
>>28842006Enough to suspect him
>>28842006Enough to know it's him.
>>28842006>That he's got motive, possible access to the information, and has been absent from school since you beat the JOKER.
>>28842548did we ever ask Minako to get the rest of the team some invokers?Becasue if we didn't we should send her that email now
>>28842999>Evokers, and no. I'm pretty sure you wanted to actually, you know, test it beforehand?
>>28843151Testing might be a good idea.well my vote is to see if Chie or Yosuke wants to come with us to test it out after class at the hobby shop
>>28843326Try it in the cave later.
>Romance~"So..." You start, getting everyone's attention. "How are your love lives going?"There's a general burst of sputtering from everyone.Except Yukiko, who's expression is stony. "What the hell, Narukami?" Kanji asks, glaring at you as you start to grin again. "Well, since we're friends, I thought I'd ask around. I mean, you don't need to share it if yo-" You continue, being cut off by a loud bout of laughter from Yukiko, as she points at Yosuke....This continues for a minute, with Chie sighing and facepalming, while Yosuke looks... Annoyed. "Heh heh... "...Looks like Yukiko is winding down, though Yosuke is still looks annoyed about the outburst. Time to cut it off. "Alright, bad subject to start on." You say, shaking your head. "I'm pretty sure we've got a suspect for throwing people into the TV, though." The others nod."Yeah." Yosuke says, looking around. "Mitsuo Kubo. That freak who was hitting on Yukiko the first day you were here."Kanji seems to be thinking about something as he rubs his chin."And that me and Hanamura shut down, too." Chie continues, pounding her palm with her fist. "He's the only guy that's got a reason to do it.">Response?
>Yeah, sorry about that. Some stuff happened and I've been distracted. Gonna make some food and be less so.
>>28844462Talk about mitsuo more and ask if anyone knows his address or class
>>28844462Alright so we have a motive. Now we need to make sure it was him. We should test to make sure he can enter the tv
>>28844541>He's in a different school, note.
>>28844565Oh right. We can ask Dojima then.
>>28844462Tell the crew that you'll ask Dojima about Mitsuo,
>InformationYou nod at that. "I can see about getting his address through my uncle, or maybe Miss Arisato." You say, getting approving gestures from Chie and Yosuke. "We can confront him and see if he's able to en-""What about th' other two?" Kanji asks, shaking his head. "Why would he want t' throw that announcer chick into the TV? Or that politician?"...That's right. Mayumi Yamano and Taro Namatame are still missing, and you found signs of the former's Dungeon in the TV world."So... It might not be him..." Yukiko says, holding her finger to her chin. "But most of the evidence is pointing to him, so... "There's a pause in the conversation "Then there's probably more than one person doing that." Yosuke says, sighing. "That guy- Igor- said it was a parasite, right? Think there's a chance of there being more than one?""So... Multiple people summoning them?" You ask, getting a nod. "Probably, thinking about it..."...Everyone else seems to be in thought again...>Write in
>>28846804Maybe it's not, but right now he's our best lead. We cant take a chance and we have to investigate every lead. Let's not forget that as unlikely as it is, the joker might be a separate incident at an untimely time.
>>28846908I think it would be best if we didn't all confront him. I was thinking just Yu and Minako, so it doesn't seem like we're ganging up on him. a large group might make him nervous, and we don't need him on edge if we're going to question him
>>28846958Yeah, no confrontation yet but we can't ignore him
>We still need to investigate"Either way," You start, shaking your head. "Kubo's our best lead, and we can't really afford to ignore any at the moment." This gets nods from the rest. "Maybe a couple of us should go talk to him, and see what information we can gather at some point." You finish, just as the bell starts to ring to signal the end of lunch. The others groan and stand up, but you can get a general feeling they agree....After walking Nanako home, you have quite a bit of time this afternoon... >Go to the TV World?>Contact Minako to question Kubo?>Contact Minako to go explore the mines?>Go hang out with a friend or two?>Write in
>Same deal as last night. I'm wiped, and probably need to get up in the morning. If this is alive when I get back, I'll continue on until about 10 PM.
>>28848860Hang out with Minako, make sure she's okay. we haven't talked to her for a few days
Rolled 17 + 2>>28848860Check on/hang out with Minako
>>28848860>Sign up for a fucking sports club already
>>28848860>>Go hang out with a friend or two?Go hang out with minakoAnd also go sign up for basketball.
>>28848860>Go hang out with a friend or two?Yosuke and Kanji
>tfw I'm only awake when GOP is asleep
>>28848860Go to Igor for info. He would know, beyond a reasonable doubt whether it's possible for them to summon their Personas in real life, and how. After that, we can do Minako
>>28848860>Go hang out with a friend or two?Lets se how Minako is doing or hang out with Yosuke
>>28848860I think we should head to Igor's to get this thing cleared up.After that, we can go to the mines or try help Yosuke pick up chicks.
Just another bump
LIVE THREAD! LIVE!
so are we gonna start waifuing yet?
>>28863426No. Don't even joke. You have PGQ for that to shitpost in.
Back, again. >Looks like "See Igor" is a leading opinion. Maybe with "Hang out with Minako/Yosuke" as a second.
>>28865559How did I even lose my trip...
>>28865604If you're back then I'm voting for hanging out with Minako
>>28865604>>28865625This, MC chill times are a go.
>>28865559I'm keeping my vote for check on Minako
>>28863507GOP is a good writer and i think he'd be able to make it interesting. But with how sparsely we have quests and with the slow progression we should drop waifuing and concentrate on the investigation. The triple date would be a good way to boost morale and Social Links i think. So maybe we should do that for fun and not to try and hook up.
>>28865625>>28865666>>28865708But I was... Alright, alright. >>28865807I don't consider myself good.
>>28865929The narrative and characters seem to be pretty consistent. I read all the archived threads over the past few days and the pacing seemed pretty good and everything. I'm not into fan fiction or anything but this quest seemed to keep the spirit of Persona intact.
>Hang out with MinakoYou nod to yourself, pulling out your phone. A quick email is sent to Minako, asking her if she wants to meet up somewhere to talk....A few minutes pass, and you get a response, asking you to head up to the hill overlooking town... Seems she's near there already.......You stretch and head out, walking for a fair bit before arriving. Glancing around, you see Minako over by a bench, squatting down and petting a stray dog."Yo." You say, giving her a short wave as she notices you. "Ah, hi there." She says, turning around. She's still petting the dog... "What did you want to talk about?">Nothing, really>Just checking in. Your email last night sounded like you had had a hard day>Investigation stuff>Write in
>>28867418>>Just checking in. Your email last night sounded like you had had a hard dayFriends don't let friends have hard days
>>28867418>Just checking in>How are you settling in town?>Ask about possibly experimenting with her Evoker and the two who might be able to use it
>>28867525>>Ask about possibly experimenting with herWhoa man its a bit early for that->Evoker and the two who might be able to use itoh alright
>>28867566Man, I'm all into that gentlemanly, classy shit. Taking a bitch out 3 times before making a move if she's comfortable with it
>>28867418>Pat the doggy>Check in>Ask if she's received any updates from Shadow OPs or whatever>Ask about circulating rumors.
GoP pls wake up
>>28867418>Just checking in. Your email last night sounded like you had had a hard daylets be nice after that we can ask evoker related questions
>>28867418Tell her about Yosuke and Chie's summoning problems and her input on that
>>28867418>>Just checking in. Your email last night sounded like you had had a hard dayHope yuu bought like 2 can chilled drinks.
>>28873316Seems like i posted this too earlynow is I can only hope GOP wakes before the thread dies
this is getting silly
>>28876619and depressing.I think we should just let it die and let GOP open a new thread.
>>28867418You should try telling us when you gotta sleep>>28867418>Just checking in. Your email last night sounded like you had had a hard day>>Do you actually like gunpla?>Investigation stuff>>Invokers for them. If you're not sure, maybe we should ask Igor?>>Can we get some support? Like, finding MItsuo? Or at least equipment? We're not exactly kitted out to explore mines or to split up.Towards the end, we can ask her out. >>28876688I never understood the point of bumping a thread to keep it on the page when OP can always just make a new one.
>>28876696Because GOP tends to run over several days in him down time. It would be better to have one long one instead of a lot of very short ones but this thread has mostly been bumps.
>>28865807Like I said, plenty of quests that have already been blessed by waifus & harems. Lets keep this one different.
>>28876696>You should try telling us when you gotta sleepTrue he should and I hope he reads this>the third pointbasically what>>28876722but I personally just do it because GOP normally asks for it
>Checking in"I was just checking in." You say, shrugging and walking over to her and the dog. "I mean, you seemed tired yesterday."It seems a bit nervous, but doesn't react horribly to you. "Ah, right,"Minako says, standingup and nodding. "Yeah, we got new stuff in, so I had to stock it, and then in the middle of the afternoon, we got a bunch of highschoolers in trying to show their custom models off to me and yell at each other about how theirs were better."...Oops."You wouldn't happen to know anything about that, would you?"..."So, Hanamura and Satonaka aren't able to summon their personae outside of the TV world." You continue, basically ignoring the question as Minako sighs. "Any ideas?"There's a pause..."Maybe an evoker would help, then." She says, shaking her head. "Not sure if they'd be up to it, though. Those things are stressful, not to mention..."Oh. Right. Gun-shaped. You can see how it'd be disturbing..."Besides, my boss hasn't gotten back yet, and can't clear any requisitions while she's out." Minako sighs. "I suppose I could ask for some from the emergency stock, but...""...Still?" You ask. "That's a long time..." "Yeah, well, whoever stole our stuff also seemingly got a few of the old machines the group used." Minako shrugs. "Seems like one of those was at fault for that... Thing a few weeks ago."She seems half-disturbed, half-relieved.Probably a good idea to chane the subject again.>Write in>>28876696I really should. Unfortunately, the last few days have been exhausting, though I didn't feel it.I basically felt fine up until I utterly crashed. Shit sucks.
>>28879381So how are you settling into town, I'm pretty new here myself.
>>28879381Ask about hobbies, then if she's single.
>>28879510She is fairly new in town right? Like, called here about shadows recently
>>28879381>I basically felt fine up until I utterly crashedThat's not normalMaybe you should visit a doctor or something
So, GOP, is Shinjiro alive or not?
>>28879794Nah, it happens all the time
>>28879510>>28879660Gonna vote for these two
>>28879766>She's been in town longer than you. At least several months so. >>28879815>He'd have had to get control of his Persona and stop taking the suppressants, even if he survived being shot. Even then, that wouldn't fix the damage.
>>28879861I know that it does with him, but I can always feel the tiredness accamulating. I can acknowledge the point at which my brain can barely think and I gotta crash, so I'd be able to make a post before I go to bedI just assume that everyone could do that
>>28879872This sounds like a good idea
>>28879929I usually can do that, but the last two days were worse than usual in terms of exhaustion. And there's also my desire to make just.. .one... more... update... before I crash.
>>28879660>then if she's singleThat's some kind of meta-trollingDidn't we kidna throw a stone at her personal life via rumormongering?
>>28879921>>She's been in town longer than you. At least several months soThen that might be an odd question. I'm not really sure how long goes by before that question goes out of date>>28879974That's true.
>>28879510Changing to, how do you like this town instead. Also maybe discuss models? Yuu makes models, might be a decent coversation topic
>>28880387that sounds like a good conversation topicI still want to ask if she's singleLets go with that
>>28880610If we can ask in a subtle way I'm for it
Sorry about vanishing. Wound up out on a Chrostmas shopping trick when I thought it was a chance to go get food.Moment I find an outlet, I'll throw something together.
>>28880939Chrostmas.... Christmas.... Whatever
>>28880939It's fine. What are you getting us for Christmas?
>>28880968I know what I want
>>28881021Risebutt is nice, but I'll take Minakobutt this time.Still, risebutt is quite lovely
>>28877346Oh, the ironyWe'll keep this quest waifu/harem-free, but quest's setting is basically waifus/harem
>>28881021A new TV?
>>28881282True, that. >Writing. [Opinions on town] as subject.
>>28882068also add in the single thing
Rolled 13>roll d20 for discression
>>28879974How is it meta trolling? i thought we all agreed to go with Minako
Rolled 20>>28882419Did GOP lose his trip?
>>28882663holy shit is that ever a signwe're going for this guys, the dice demand it
>>28882663I did not. I did, however, lose my outlet. And, hell...>Roll for discretion
Rolled 3>>28882868Maybe when we ask her out it can be like>So, two people who just moved and are single...>Why you should go out with me? Well, other than my looks and charming personality? I can cook, sew, clean and probably have a bright future ahead.
Rolled 5>>28882868So the 20 doesn't count does it?Man...
Rolled 16>>28882868Why are we rolling anyway?
>>28883104Nice saving the day man. Keep it upAlso, rolling for discretion asking if she's single
Rolled 8>>28882868But he got a 20!
>>28883952Why did you try to critfail? Not cool
>>28884063I didn't I just forgot I had roll there. We have fortune 2.5 anyways
Which fortune gives us the +7? I'd use that
>>28884672Yea, lets us it in this one.
>>28884672We got a 16, were fine
>You're wanting to use Fortune 1, then?
>>28884963How often do we get to use it? The character sheet seems to be gone too
>>28885008Nevermind. I didn't copy the end 5. I vote no since threads last awhile
>>28884963I'd say use it. We have other fortunes we can use if shit really hits the fanPlus I don't know how much longer this thread will be up but its been going a while
>>28885047Actually fuck it. Go for it, this thread won't be around too much longer
>>28884963Use it. We're at 200++ after all.
>>28884963This roll probably needs it. Kind of a sensitive topic that requires a light touch.
Well it looks like GM is kill again
>>28887314><GoldenOP> Finally. Remembered what I was writing. Sometimes i dunno which is worse...
>Opinions on town"So, know of anything interesting around town?" You ask, catching Minako's attention again. "Still haven't taken a look around myself."She shrugs."Not really. Seems like the Amagi Inn is the biggest thing in town." She says, heading over to a nearby bench. "It's not too far to Okina, though, and they've got a bunch of stuff that Inaba doesn't."You shrug, standing up and watching the dog run off. "Really, I'm pretty sure I'd be bored in short order if not for this whole mystery to solve." You say, stepping over to join her. "I mean, nothing to do here, no girlfriend, and the only job I've found so far is gas station attendant.""Yeah, I know how that is..." She says, shaking her head sadly. "Though this was being a nice vacation from the office drudgery that I had been doing. And it's keeping things from being awkward with a coworker of mine, since he's out helping the boss while I'm here.""So, an ex, huh?" You ask, looking over curiously. "I dated him for a bit, but we decided that it'd end horribly." She says, shrugging. ...You can catch her muttering something under her breath as she looks off to the side, but can't make it out.>Write in
>>28887554ask her how long ago that waswe can't be dating a girl if we're the rebound
>>28887554"Would this be 'fighting shadows' coworker or something more mundane?"
Sorry about the extra-long delay. Battery died while I was typing, so I lost... Most of that and had to re-figure the course.
>>28887554"Office Drudgery? I would have thought working for a 'special investigation service' would have been fairly interesting. What do you usually do there?"
>>28887554>"Hey, I know how that goes. Don't want to pry, but if it's gonna have a bad effect on our dynamic... Y'know."
>>28887554"End horribly? Sounds complicated."
>>28887852Can we not do this one?Everything asks about the the ex but talking about dynamics brings Yuu into focus.
>>28887554>Well...wanna try dating?Later, we can mention the whole school-spy-network thing.Actually, we should ask Dojima about it, because we might be able to exploit it
>>28888093>Hey Dojima did you know the school has rumors?>So what?>We can exploit it>How? >By making....rumors?
>>28888093May be too soon for this, dude. Not to mention we have three other waifus to meet.
>>28888202Other waifus aren't as good. I should know, I'm an expert on these things
>>28888093Abit too soon anon to ask her out.
>>28888202We voted on this. >>28888246I don't think it is. You like a girl, you ask her out. Not sputter over it half a year.>>28888196No. More like:>So, one guy has a creepily good information network for being a kid. Like [explain what happened]. Maybe we can have him keep an eye out for Mitsuo, and text you if he's spotted?
>>28888389Or we can have him text us if he's spotted, instead of sending rumors to the police. What's Dojima going to do, call us? Arrest him without a warrant?
>>28888389Our social link is nowhere at the level where she'd be interested, asking now would likely result in her rejecting Yuu and make thing awkward for the investigation. We're not really working with western sensibilities but asian ones. Taking it slowly would be better.
>>28888389No. We're not asking her out. I support Minako and all, but you're taking it way too fast.
>>28888626>>28888597These men speak truth. S. Link = Miniscule.
>>28888423What? I never implied that. You're reading into things that aren't there. It's just asking him for advice on how to approach Funky in a way that"ll go well.>>28888597Needing SL 10 to go on a date (which lets you get closer and more intimate in the first place) sounds pretty silly and meta.
>>28888690>Hey dude, can you tell me if this dude is sighted>okIt's not hard
>>28888722I can't tell if you're just trying to be argumentative. It's more that this is a criminal suspect.
>>28888916>Hey dude, we suspect this guy did something wrong, can you tell us if he's seen>okLegally, there's nothing Dojima could even do. They don't have anything on him outside of the suspicion of summoning the joker, but like Dojima said, only one other person in the department listens to that crazy talk, so what's he going to do?
>>28888969>Legally, there's nothing Dojima could even do. I never said anything about Dojima doing anything.
>>28889152Then why involve him at all? There's nothing he can do, it's a waste of time for him and Yuu
>>28889210You really are being argumentative, huh? How much of my posts did you actually read?>>28888690>It's just asking him for advice on how to approach Funky in a way that"ll go well.
>>28887554Ask her out or lead to it. At least show we're interested in her. If she isn't interested back, we can back off.
>>28889368We don't fucking need advice, it's a really fucking simple thing>Can you tell me if you see this guy.>okWhy would we need advice for that, is he supposed to be retarded? It is that simple
>>28889412To do it in a way that won't arouse suspicion. Dojima is a detective and would have experience with informants and investigating. You're pretty much arguing against something that will do no harm for the sake of it.
>Huh?"Shadow-fighting coworker, then?" You ask, getting a nod. "Yeah. He's one of the two that Mit- Miss Kirijo took with her on her hunt for her property." Minako says, sighing. "We dated a bit when we were still in school, but it never went anywhere, especially since..."She trails off, obviously in thought. "Well, whatever. You mentioned office drudgery." You continue. "I thought you were with a police organization...?"She snorts at that."Yeah, and we're still sorting through the files from the last fifty years of its poorly maintained existence." She replies. "Not to mention that we're operating around the country. I've been on the backup team and need to be able to get to anyone who needs help.""So I've been at the main office, sorting through stuff with a friend's help. It's a pain, but..." She shrugs. "We're getting the old case files organized, which is why we even know about the JOKER and cell phones."You nod. "Makes sense, then." You say, finally coming to a decision. "Uh... Is there..."...You pause. No, asking her out isn't a good idea. Your gut is telling you that you aren't nearly close enough to her yet to expect that to work. >Write in
>>28890411"... Nevermind. Uh, do you need my help at the office sometime? I'd like to meet your comrades if we're all in this together."
>>28890411See? No fucking asking her out yet>Is there anywhere you'd like to go for dinner since it's getting pretty lateNot a date-dinner, just a friends-dinner
>>28890411Well she shared abit. Share some of Yuu's past. Parents, home away from this town and all.>>28890456Sounds like a good idea. But make it Yuu's cooking. And Nanako would probably be happy to see Minako again.
>>28890673Yeah sure, invite her to eat at our house>inb4 natural one on dinner with no fortune to use
>>28890697We have fortune 2.5 that negates the first 1.And we also have fortune 2 unused.'sides its not the first time we've asked her to stay over for dinner.
>>28890756Oh right, 2.5
>>28890673>Share some of Yuu's pastThis. I'm curious too
>Past>Want help some time? >Dinner"Is there what?" Minako asks, looking at you somewhat curiously....Time to bluff."Is there anything I could do to help out with those files?" You ask. "I mean, I'm already in the know about the stuff that's covered by them, right? Wouldn't hurt, and maybe that odd information thing will help out and fill in some blanks."...She holds her chin, obviously in thought. "Hm... Might be helpful, actually. I was planning to go drop in in a couple of weeks, anyway, if the others don't get back." She says, nodding. "Yeah, if you have time, that'd be great."The two of you sit in silence for a few minutes. "So..." You say, looking over. "I've learned a bunch about you, but haven't shared much.""Yeah, I've been kind of wondering about what your life was like before you came here, since you've obviously got a strong will." Minako nods. You shrug."Well... Not much to say. Lived with my parents in Tokyo..." You start. "Went to school there... No girlfriend, no one who really was a 'friend' to me. A few acquaintances, though." Minako nods at that."Anyway, mostly spend my time studying or at the museum, since mom was big on learning about history and myths for some reason. Dad gave me a few pointers on electronics, since he's a programmer, but... Didn't really stick much."...There's something you feel like you should be remembering... You can't quite put your finger on it...You shake your head."Anyway, when dad got the offer to lecture in America, they decided to go on over ahead of time, and leave me here with my uncle so they can get set up, and I can get through a year of school without changing languages partway." You stand up and stretch. (1/2)
>>28892301(2/2)"Anyway, it's getting kinda late." You say, turning to face Minako. "Wanna come over for dinner? There's something you should probably talk to Uncle Ryo about too, and Nanako would be happy to see you again.""Hm..." She seems to consider it for a minute. "Yeah, sure. I was gonna get takeout, but if your cooking is as good as it was last time, this'll be a lot better."You send a quick email to Dojima, telling hi about your additional guest, and then spend some more time talking to Minako.
>Gonna call it here. Sorry about this thread being about as fast as molasses. >...Though I suppose, if you're interested, I could do another interlude at the start of next thread...
>>28892362Whatever you want, dude. I think it's about time to let this thread die and get a new one though
>>28892362Interlude sounds good!
>>28892362What kind of interlude?Thanks for the notice, GOP
>>28892379Yeah, this thread is on autosage. Next one will be announced via twitter, and will hopefully not be as slow as this one. >>28892446Depends on your choice, though.
>>28892454*really. Stupid thing being an afterthought.Anyway, the interlude will be another "Choice" one, much like the first.
>I'm willing to do an interlude, if you decide between the Magician, the Emperor, the Hermit, and the Hanged Man.>One, and only one.
>>28892751I'll go for the Emperor
>>28892751Whos Hermit and Hanged Man?
>>28892832Like he'd tell us that.I'm sure they're not the same as the game though.
>>28892832>That would be telling. >And Magician and Emperor are NOT Yosuke and Kanji. FYI.
>>28892751Who did we pick last time, anyway? Aeon? Go with Hanged Man, I guess.
Rolled 3>>28892751>>28892852Huhhh...I'll let the dice do it for me.
>>28892301>...There's something you feel like you should be remembering... You can't quite put your finger on it...Whereabout is the gap, chronologically? We had some vague, nondescript backstory up until something we can't even remember, and then we came here?
>>28892879I assume 3 is Hermit?
>>28892958Looks that way, yup.
>2 Hermit, a Hanged Man, and an Emperor.>Any more votes?
WelpApparently we really are descendants of SMTI protagsEither that or GOP just fucks with usI vote Hanged Man
>>28892892>About an hour, during the time you were saying goodbye to what few friends you had before leaving. >>28893322>Pic related. >Two Hermit, two Hanged Man, and an Emperor.
>>28893386Hey GoPWhich Meguka is best Meguka?
>>28893386>About an hour, during the time you were saying goodbye to what few friends you had before leaving. Did we turn into a demon and ate them all?Is that why we're so good at cooking?Do we have a cool tattoo on our butt?
>>28893493>Do we have a cool tattoo on our butt?What would it even say?
>>28893512DickbuttJust a nondescript symbol
>>28893493>You have no clue what happened, actually. >In fact, until you thought about it, you didn't even notice the missing time....
>>28893583>try to see it>finally go buy a special mirror>it's really small>squint really hard>Ur a faget
>>28893591This isn't alarming at allWe really need that tiebreaker
>>28893677If there isn't one,I'll postpone it another thread, and ask next one.
Rolled 2>>28893837Ok, I voted for hermit, but I'll change it to Hanged man if this is a 2Hanged man was my 2nd choice anyways
>>28893386Well, yeah, that makes a lot of sense, actually. We have a vague, nondescript recollection that involves no ties and no connections. It's a clean slate and a free get-away to guarantee that nobody can recognize the problem inherent in "Yu." Except Nu, who probably assumes the problem is internal.
