Shin Megami Tensei: Persona https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/shin-megami-tensei-persona-jubilee.54518/ We have opened! EDIT: Back down to the Minor Arcana only slot.Welcome to this tale. Las Vegas, Nevada is where we make our story. A city of desire, of night life, of every excess capable by humans. But it's also a place people live. A city where people work and go to school. A city where lives are started and ended. And it is here, in sin city, where a group of people will gain the power of Persona and be thrust into a battle between two cosmic forces for the very fate of humanity itself. What's a persona?Persona is the power of the human mind. It's a manifestation of our psyche, of both our true selves and the face we put on to face life. While everyone has the potential to have a Persona, that potential must be unlocked. This can be done directly or indirectly through one of two forces, Philemon, guardian of humanity and overall force of good, or Nyarlathothep, the crawling chaos. Certain groups have forced their Persona out through other methods, but they were still granted the ability by one of these two groups or one of their agents. Persona are sorted into groups called Arcana, named after the major and minor suits of the Raider-White Tarot. Someone's life and personality will reflect that Arcana, and the meanings it holds in tarot. Persona manifest using mythological archetypes. So someone of the fool arcana, which represents potential and unpredictability, might manifest their persona as Loki, Susano-o, or Ose, while someone of the Hierophant arcana, which represents firm guidance might bring forth Jupiter, Omoikane, or Thoth. Setting infoThe world of our story is virtually identical to the real world. People drive cars, use cell phones, have debates over which next-gen console is the best, go to school, and so on. In fact, for all but a small handful of people, the world is exactly identical to the real world. But there are shadows in this world, shadows that only that small handful of people will see. A great cosmic struggle rages on between Philemon and Nyarlathothep, two extraordinarily powerful agents. They, bound by certain rules, select great creatures and promising humans to fight as proxies in a long, complicated game.
