Persona: Amor Fati
Love your fate,
which is in fact your life.

Genres: Psychological || Supernatural || Horror || Mystery || Drama || Slice of Life
Inspirations: Heavily inspired by the Persona video games, Lovecraftian horror, Jungian psychology theories, and Tarot.

Plot Summation: Due to circumstances beyond his control a man is forced to relocate from a rural town to the big city. The move goes well enough, though as he attempts to settle in during his first night something strange happens when the clock strikes midnight. The world comes to a complete stand still. As he explores the frozen neighborhood the young man is lured and then trapped in a maze styled after his worst nightmares, greatest fears, and secret insecurities. And he isn’t alone. Shadowy monsters stalk, taunt, and attempt to kill him.

Luckily he is a saved by an oddly dressed boy and escorted out of the labyrinth. His strange savior takes him home and explains the hidden world that has just been revealed to him: persona, shadows, and labyrinths. Explanations aren't the only thing the strange boy offers to him. He invites the man to enter into a contract that imbues him with the mystical power of persona and join the fight against the malevolent shadows in order to save other the unlucky souls that occasionally become trapped in the horrific labyrinths that are constructed during the missing hour.

The young man will have to juggle the competing demands of life and develop new relationships while combating monstrosities born from humanity’s collective subconscious psyche.

Vital Information
  • I’m looking for someone to take on the role of the Protagonist. However my writing partner will need to help me create and control background characters. I'll also need them to assist me in fleshing out the rest of the cast. Even if I take control of the majority of the cast we'll need to brainstorm the Protagonist's companions together. I'll definitely need my partner's input and ideas to pull all this off. My writing partner is free to decide the Protagonist’s name, age, appearance, personality, etc. All I ask is that he be a dominant top or switchy top and that he have an intriguing personality and psychological depth to him. He should have flaws, weaknesses, etc. Please no “blank slate” or “perfect” protagonist.
  • I won’t GM the whole story. While I want to write out multiple main characters for the Protagonist to befriend and bond with I don’t want to be the sole leader of the story and dictate everything that happens. I need my writing partner to be an equal collaborator. They’ll need to help me create and carry on the plot.
  • Freeform Only. While this idea hugely borrows from the video games Persona 3 and Persona 4 I won’t be introducing any system or dice roll aspects. All plot twists, successes or failures, injuries, etc will be decided OOCly based on what will be the most interesting course for the story. Characters will have stats and spells, but it will be only for fun and flavor.
  • The setting will be a major city in Japan, England, or the United States. It could be placed in a real city or a fictional one. I have a preference for setting the story in Japan, but I'm flexible on this point and if my writing partner isn't fond of Japan we can place it in England or the States.
  • The Protagonist cannot be in a strictly monogamous relationship. I’ll just be real honest here: I want to see some “harem” shenanigans or exploration of polyamory. I’m going to be creating a lot of handsome and interesting men for the Protagonist to interact with and I’d like to see him engage in sexual and/or romantic pursuits with many of his companions. The Protagonist can be a smooth player, an unrepentant cheater, an ethical slut, or genuinely polyamorous - it doesn’t matter what direction my writing partner wants to take with him. What matters is that he isn’t limited to one monogamous relationship or ignores the whole cast in favor of one particular romantic interest.

Please PM me if this idea catches your interest and express a few of your own ideas for either the story or the protagonist. Don't post in this thread.
