They took the IM Web service off the net and I don't know how to use the one in the Mail Service unfortunately.  I do however have AIM if you want to talk there.

Indeed it is Pend buddy.  I can't wait lol.

Oh... my. What is this? A Persona roleplay? Hm.

Color me interested, yes indeed.

I've played through P3 about one-and-a-half times, am familiar with the basic outline of P4, and... would say I'm probably interested in this, aye.

I'll hopefully put something together character-wise tomorrow or the day after, after taking a while to re-read over your take on this and mulling about things for a while. Assuming you're still looking for more people, which... I presume you are, judging by "big group wanted."

I'm thinking High Priestess Arcana, buuuut. Iunno yet. Not certain.

I don't believe Priestess has been chosen yet but I could be wrong.  Still, I'd be happy to have you aboard and yes, I am still looking for a few more people yet.  Welcome aboard if you do get a profile going.

Offline pendarious

To my knowledge we have; Hanged man, magician, death, and fool. i may have missed one but i'm not sure.

Offline Solstice

We also have someone who mentioned they were considering Moon, if I'm not mistaken.

Hm. I'm considering Tower as well, obviously as a rather... different, character archetype from High Priestess.

Two questions!
The first, you do want us to be associated directly with the school, right? Just--confirming, so I know what directions to take or not when brainstorming.

And, the second: Any particular limitations you want on personas (exist in mythology, are more than X years old, whatnot), or just... run wild, within reason?

You can use a premade Persona from any of the past 4 games, or make up your own within reason.  I made up my own, the Persona I chose being a Japanese assassin from the Meiji Era.  (Ever see Rurouni Kenshin?   :P)  All that aside, creating your own within reason is perfectly cool by me as well.  Also, no, you don't have to be related to the college at all or Inaba for that matter, moving in as you like so feel free to go nuts on that end as well lol.

The only small problem I have is the fact he's able to summon his Persona with potions.  The way you make it sound is that he already has his Persona, but that can't be the case here since the events that allow new people to attain such power hasn't happened yet.  Beyond that and a simple clarification on your part will help clear up any doubts I have, but otherwise it's an awesome profile Star.

It's all good Star.  Take your time and make it good when you can, no rush.  As soon as Zara gets his profile up and going I'll get the OOC as well as the IC going.

I should have said as soon as one other person gets a profile up lol.  At any rate, I am still accepting a few profiles yet even after the last one to get things going for the RP.

Offline Solstice

Sorry to pester with another question--

If personas were canonically used in the series (e.g. Metis, Io, Orpheus), are they still fair game, or would you rather they retain that more iconic status?

As long as they aren't any of the original P4 Personas any canon created Personas are free game hun.  No worries on asking questions though, I don't mind at all.   ;D

Offline Solstice

Well, I was going to go and edit my post, but you already answered it. >_>

-Koff-

P3, and I believe P4, did part-way-through "upgrades" on most people's personas; are you plannign to incorporate that?

Ons;For now, nothing stuff will be added as she discovers it.
Offs; Again what I said on Omís.
Personality;  She is a happy girl, she is the girl that can be friends with just about anybody if they let her. She can be pretty fun to be around often telling jokes or putting herself in embarrassing situations in order to get others to laugh. She just loves the feeling she gets when other people laugh because of something she did or said. She keeps her past hidden from anybody perhaps because that is the thing that can cause this happy girl to show her true personality.

In fact she is indeed happy but however she is calmer than what she shows. She uses a mask in front of people, especially males. Acting childish she hopes to have boys see her more as a friend than a partner. When the past comes into question she usually makes up a excuse to get away from the group not really wanting to reveal her past. She is a box full of chocolates you never know what she is going to give you.

Personal History; Life itís not that easy, especially for Natsume. Daughter of a middle class family she got everything she ever wanted in life with her parents, both good loving folks. Her life was pretty normal at the beginning of her life, she had a lot of friends and was loved by everybody around her, she had a very good childhood. Her parents loved her to death, however it all changed one night. It was a family meeting, there were drinks and party all around, a new year arrived full of opportunities and new hopes for the family. Nat was with her parents, at the time she was barely eight years old. The night was nearly over and her parents wanted to get home, however her dad was drinking and he got up to the driverís seat much to the fight of his wife. Guessing what happened could be as easy as pie, his car hit a tree sending her wife outside the car hitting the tree in front of her, she was declared dead a couple of hours later in the hospital.

Ever since then Natís father started drinking, and with drinking came his rage that was inflected on the poor Nat. She was constantly abused and beaten by her father making her leave her house often and just escape to her friends house which granted her more beatings once her father got her back. However when she turned sixteen his father could not see her as a child but a woman and with that came his needs, physical needs. During the next two years she was the subject to constant rapes by the hands of her own father. Two years later she finally decided that enough was enough and went to the police which they caught him easily enough and sent him to jail.

Now with her past out of her life she enrolls to the university. With her new life came new opportunities. However her past still haunted her not making her able to get into any real relationships, in her mind her body was dirty because what her father did to her. She started acting differently, more childish in hopes to get people to think of her as a friend and not a sex partner, she didnít wanted to stain them with her dirty body.

Dungeon Theme/Creatures that inhabit it; I was thinking of something with her old home. The rest I leave to you.

The OOC and the Character Roster threads are open for business.  Check the first post on the first page to get your stuff going while I get the IC ready.  Adios for now guys and gals.

I finished my character sheet.  I also like the looks of the other characters popping up.  :-)

By the way, Vergil, a friend of mine is considering playing my character's Persona. Just thought I should give a heads-up.
