Get in touch with your inner self... (RP Disc)

Postby Drayco on Sun Dec 04, 2011 12:03 pm

Well, since Mayhem RPs move slower than molasses in a New England december, I AM GOING TO RUN TWO because I'm just that boundlessly full of creativity and ideas. And my IRL gaming group is going slowish, but hey, more fun for you guys.

Is anyone here familiar with... Persona? Yes? Maybe? Awesome.
And don't worry, all you who don't know a thing about Persona 4 or the SMT and Persona series(es). Due to the nature of this RP, you don't have to. All you have to know is how to play your character, the rest will make sense as it goes along.

11/21, 2011

A strange fog moves in from the ocean over the town of Inaba, in the Tottori province of Japan. Over the course of the next month, it slowly starts to spread over the town, baffling weather experts at the Tottori University of Environmental Studies. Regardless, it's just fog, so nobody pays it too much mind.


12/24, 2011

A series of power outages flicker on and off over Inaba.
With all communications out, only the members of the town see what truly happens. Shadowy entities emerge from the fog, and transform into monsters. They run wild in the town, preying on anyone out on the streets. A few people fight back under the leadership of a group of four teenagers, but are overrun by the sheer numbers of the unusual creatures. Far more try to flee, but are caught and devoured all the same. As power outages continue to prevent outgoing communications, the town is reduced to an empty shell by dawn...

And then the fog begins to spread, no one the wiser of what it brings...


~ ~ ~

This game takes place in a kind of "what if?" of an event near the end of Persona 4. The Shadows, spirits of mankind's negative emotions and the like, break out of the world of dreams portrayed in the "TV World" of that game, and overrun into the real world. In the game, this only happens if you fail to capture the true antagonist of the game by then. Meaning that canonically, this doesn't happen.

The what if scenario, however, is that in this version it does.

You will play as high school students at AFS High School, in Tottori (city), the capital of the Tottori prefecture. AFS is well known for foreign exchange programs to their school, and many of the students there aspire to go on to further their education at one of the two universities in the city. As the most populous city in the least populated part of japan, it's more like a big suburb next to the beach.
Particularly, you will all be members of the TUES Club, which unironically meets on tuesdays. Its a club for students who want to go on to study at the Tottori University of Environmental Studies... or those who just wanted some extra credit that looks really good on your college applications.

The RP starts on 12/24, with everyone on their last day of school before Christmas Break gives them a big long 2 day weekend (12/24 is a Saturday, Japanese schools only have Sundays off for normal weeks)! To make it even better, there's an assembly today with a man speaking about interpersonal relationships, anti-bullying, and friendship to anyone who wants to attend. And by that I mean practically everyone because it gets you out of half of your classes for the day, as long as you hand in the personality test given out at the assembly to your next class teacher.
So a day with only half classes, AND right before Christmas break?
Awesome.

Yes, I'm aware this is a Persona RP and the bio has nothing about the Personas.
Yes, you'll get them.
You'll just have to wait and see how... :D

Kinda?
The games are based on psychology, but to an extent yeah they play out fairly horror/thrillerish.

THIS game, however, much more so. Well... like a psychological thriller scenario crossed with a japanese high school anime. Crossed with my own brand of insane, of course.

Interesting. I'll have to see if I can come up with something.

And feel free to bonk me on the head every time you see me and remind me to do something with Avery.

Hello. It's a been a while. I think the last time I was here was in a December.

I don't know about Persona 4, but I'm playing through Persona 3. This looks like an interesting plot.

Oh man oh man, I love Persona too much, I can feel it happening...
I am a shadow...the true self...

Name: Daisuke Onozuka
Grade: Junior
Birthdate: 12/27
Appearance: Daisuke has a sort of hipster thing going on, with his obviously messy-but-still-styled brownish hair; he wears his uniform buttoned mostly up, but with the top left unbuttoned. Out of school, he wears a variety of stylish outfits, but never anything too pretentious.
Hobbies/Interests: Writing short stories; he hopes to become a writer. He holds his friends in high regards.

Weapon of Choice: Anything bat- or club- or sword-like. Anything that allows him to keep his distance.
Backstory: Daisuke's from a pretty rich family, and used to live on Tatsumi Port Island, and was all set to go to the local private Gekkoukan High School, when many of the people in Iwatodai became afflicted with Apathy Syndrome. His overprotective mother was worried and left the big city for somewhere a bit more rural. Her recently divorced husband and Daisuke's father begged her not to go, and then begged Daisuke not to go with her, but Daisuke was just waiting for an excuse to get away from his father. Daisuke started going to the local high school instead a nice private one; a fact he makes little comment on.

Life's Goal:To be successful and wealthy person.
Greatest Strength: A vast imagination and drive to get ahead.
Greatest Weakness: Daisuke is somewhat of a compulsive lier. He lies about many things, often for now good reason. It's not any kind of mental disorder, or anything like that, but lieing about little things just seems to come more naturally that any truth.

Daisuke's a lot more complicated than this little dichotomy can show, so I'd rather play him than talk about him.
The only defining characteristic between knowledge and belief is the point of view.
If making a story or RP is like baking cookies, then angst is the vanilla extract. You don't put any in, and the final product is bland, and tasteless. Put too much in, and it's bitter and gross. But if you use just the right amount, then you get something truly delicious.

It would be hilarious if that were an actual dude who just really wants to share the wonders of Cymbalta with us.

Mayhem's not dead, but it's certainly not alive either, which may or may not be for the best.

I've been pondering turning it into a chat RP if there's only going to be like three people. Sessions whenever people are about and all. But I can still see this working with a small group if everyone's up for it.
