Not much to sea out here, huh...


Introduction

Welcome to the OOC! I'm stone, your GM, and Aviaire is my lovely CoGM. Please direct any questions you have to us. If you want to PM us on the Guild, include both of us in the recipient line. On discord, you can DM me @stone#2804, though you might have to friend me first, and I'll make a group chat. Also, Avi hasn't finished Persona 5 yet, and IDK fully about others applying to the RP, so try to keep spoilers to a minimum.

We're looking for a small/medium group of people, anywhere from 4-7 players, though the number isn’t concrete yet.

Sea of Unconscious

The collective unconscious, coined by Carl Jung in 1916, argues that humans, alongside the personal unconscious, exhibit a “collective” unconscious wherein common dreams, myths, symbols, and other motifs appear constantly in individuals’ thoughts as a result of various traditions, expectations, and other excitements. These symbols are referred to as “Jungian archetypes,” and they form the basis of the idea of a collective unconscious. These archetypes are thought to shape our perceptions, thoughts, and behaviors in profound ways, and are seen as a way to understand the underlying psychological dynamics of the human experience.

There is more to the concept than the simple description above, but for the purposes of a Persona RP, it’s enough. We won’t be getting into too much psychology (unless your characters really really want to), but having the baseline knowledge is nice. The Palaces in P5 represent the personal unconscious of their rules, while P4’s TV world and P5’s Mementos both represent the collective unconscious.

The Sea of Unconscious is this RP’s way of characterizing the personal and collective unconscious in order to provide a lovely setting for shadow-fighting, bond-strengthening, and pun-making. The great big ocean represents the collective, the islands represent the personal. Early on in the RP, the party will acquire a means to travel the Sea of Unconscious. Story arcs will entail sailing to and from islands, searching for ship upgrades, and fighting bad guys.

In terms of greater theming, the focus of the RP will be isolation and connection, with a touch of personal truth. Your characters will be dealing with the barriers of communications, individual ways to build and maintain relationships, and the power of friendship. Feel free to use these themes as a guide when building your character, though it’s not necessary—Persona games generally touch on many, many different ideas beyond their central focus, and this RP will likely do the same.

Harbour Academy

Harbour is a small city on the coast of southeast England, with Harbour Academy for Gifted Adolescents and Youths located about 45 minutes away, looking over the sea. HAGAY is an international boarding school filled with students from affluent backgrounds from all over the globe, although its generous scholarship programme is always an option for those who can’t afford the price tag.

The school itself has excellent facilities, and there are a few buildings nearer to the school - a petrol station stocking a wealth of snacks and a family-run café that has proved to be a hit with the student body, occasionally offering part time jobs. For everything else (seeing a film, going to the arcade, buying swords), the city is close by.



Meta stuff

Standard Guild rules apply, don’t be dumb, don’t be a bigot.

We don’t have any length requirements for posts, even if this is a Casual RP. Write as much as you need or feel up to. Tiny posts are better than no posts! We don’t care about double posting either lol.

Here’s the character sheet, don’t make any of the sections too long or we will cry - if you have any cool ideas you’d want to include, you're free to DM us. We don’t have an explicit section for ultimate personas but it would be nice to think about the direction you might want to take your character in. Also, maybe don’t make a Navigator character. We got that covered already.

FYI, mentions break after a certain number of them are slammed into a single post. And with 4 to 7 outta all these people, what's the criteria and such? Whether or not we read Helck?

We’d like a diverse party, don’t worry about picking the same Arcana as someone else (most can be tweaked to fit another). Plus general review of sheet quality and writing and the like. it’s holistic.

Also reading Helck is sadly not a requirement, but if it were, you and hatakekuro would be in instantly lmfao

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN PEOPLE SHOULDN'T READ HELCK haha people should read helck because it's goat raw peak kino fiction, not cuz their GMs love it

please don’t worry about it too much, the group size number is not concrete

sounds good. Generally, we're looking for characters that will make good party members while retaining more agency than a normal Persona game party member. i.e. what the PTs would be like without Joker, what the Investigation team would be like without Yu, etc.

BASICALLY just make characters that are interesting and not blank slates and would slot well into a party and provide their thing and all that jazz

I'm assuming that the female uniform comes with a skirt due to the mention of cropped ones, or is that an addition that some make?

Avi will be providing a visual reference of the uniforms soon! (I don't actually remember the details and she's out rn wait a bit)

EDIT: i think there's an option for skirt or pants for everyone, not 100%
