Alright, here we are with the OOC of "Persona: Void Within the Screen." Lets jump right into the plot.

No one knew how it really started, but one thing was for sure, new victims were showing up every 4 weeks in Tokyo. The first known event anyone could point to was the death of a student by the name of Yuya Jin, an 18 year old senior. Before his supposed suicide, he was the "first" known student to use an app simply called "Crossroads." The app was said to be a gate way to an alternate dimension, or a different world, or something along those lines, but there was one thing for sure. After Jin used it, everyone else who used it would end up the same way, falling off one of the many large buildings in Tokyo. The deaths were labeled as suicides to keep public awareness low, but anyone who knew anything about the app knew the truth, or at least had access to the truth. Many were to scared to use it, or even look into it, and the few who did do some research ended up the same way.

The biggest thing was, the app suddenly appears on several people's phones at once, and then creates messages. These messages...Well no one knows what they say besides the people who receive the app, as it doesn't even seem to register when someone who didn't get the app is shown these messages. These messages speak of horrible things, and continue until one of the people within the group of those affected decides to use it, and the consequences are severe. And once it's over, everyone effected forgets they ever even had the app. Now, the app chooses a new group of students in Tokyo, ripe for the embrace of death...

And this is the opening to our RP, I hope everyone's ready for some murder mystery stuff.

Now with that out of the way, RULES:
1. Posting - Posting will work in a specific manor, rounds. You see, I will post first and this will be the beginning of the "round." After I post, everyone else is free to post once in reply. Once everyone accepted into the RP posts, the round will be over, and you'll wait until I post again to start a new round off. If you wish to post multiple times a round, you must discuss it with me before hand.

2. Level and Time for posts - So this is advanced, I shouldn't have to explain how long posts should be. However, posting times are as follows. Being as this is an advanced RP, I will give everyone a maximum of 3 days to respond to my initial post. If you don't post within that time without notifying me, you get a warning, and if you miss a second time with no notification, you're kicked. If you notify me that you're missing a round, you won't take a warning, and if you missed a round before and then notify me of a future round you'll miss, that warning strike will be wiped. Meaning as long as you notify me at least once everyone two rounds you miss, you won't get kicked. Miss 2 rounds in a row with no notification, kicked. Fair and simple I think, but please discuss this with me if you don't feel this is fair.

3. Respect - No fighting or bickering. If you have a problem it, discuss it like adults or get me involved if you have too. Also my word is law. This is mainly because if we argue over things then posting slows down and that's boring for everyone else.

That's pretty much it on rules, so now we get to Character Sheets.

Name: (Remember this takes place in Japan, so surname followed by first name, and make it authentic :))
Age: (15-18 since it's a highschool setting)
Gender:
Appearance: (Pic of any kind or description is fine.)
Personality/Arcana: (Simple character description. Keep it open ended as characters can develop and change in the RP so no need to have a strict guildeline to follow)
Weapon(s) of Choice/Type: (Two handed swords/slash, gun/pierce, bat/strike)
Persona/Element:
Persona Appearance:
"personal arc": So as I described in the int check, I want each character to have a personal story arc devised around the theme of regrets and desires. These are essential character building arcs that are there to develop your character and such. I'll do a demonstration of this in my CS as well as make it the first personal arc within the IC to give you guys an idea of how this will work.

That's pretty much it for character sheets. I like smaller CS's as it gives characters the ability to grow and change over time. Now my own CS



For the personal arc, you don't need to put down a specific set of events or anything, just a basic description of what they want to change in their life and what they desire and/or regret about their current life, and a possible way for them to get something more.

Anyways, final note. Just posting a CS will not be enough. See, I want to keep this group small, so I'm at most accepting four other people. Based on this, if we get five or more applications, I will pick the 4 that I think are best suited to this RP based on the CS submitted. That's it, hopefully we get a good group going :)

Name: Yoyohata Ryusei
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Appearance:


Personality/Arcana: The Moon. Self conflicted does not begin to describe Ryusei's feelings. Keeping a mask of tranquility up at all times, it is rare for Ryusei to say what he's feeling. More often then not he doesn't involve himself with others if given the choice because of the risk in getting close with someone and sharing his insecurities.
Weapon(s) of Choice/Type: Scalpel-Slash
Persona/Element:

Anubis - Light

I feel as though Anubis and light are appropriate for Ryusei's theme. While those who are much more attuned to Megami Tensei already know Anubis's Arcana is Judgement, to me the moon is an appropriate counterpart, perhaps even the antithesis of judgement. The moon is illusion, fear, madness, and insanity within the Arcana but it is also illumination. The truth is revealed when the moon casts light upon the darkness and so Anubis shall judge evil with the light, removing falsehood from those looking toward the future. It is the opposite of Judgement, which should be the ideal Arcana for Ryusei, because Judgement is about the realization of oneself and one's purpose. For the time being the Moon is more powerful in his life, so Judgement may come later.

As for the coincidence between Anubis and the family business, this is an intentional choice to create conflict between Ryusei and his persona. After all, death freaks him out so who better than Anubis to push the envelope?

Persona Appearance:


"personal arc": Ryusei is the son of an funeral director has come to resent the grotesque aspect of his father's business. Their long line of father-son practitioners doesn't put aside the fact that Ryusei is more than afraid of dying but Ryusei doesn't know how else to please the people around him. In many ways he is conflicted over the decision to follow his talent in law. However he sees his indecision as a weakness so he regrets wasting his time over-thinking. Truly wants to know what will come of his future which would remove the burden of choice.

There is no theme, free-forming it up. Didn't want to restrict people

Name: Kouzuki Ryu
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Appearance: Ryu is rather tall standing about 6', he has a more slender build and a rather fair complexion. His raven black hair brushes his neck and his cool blue eyes are sharp and analytical, constantly scanning everything around him.

Be warned, huge image that I'm to lazy to resize.


Personality/Arcana: Strength.
Ryu is a cold and analytical person, allowing rationality to guide his every action. He also strongly believes in his own personal philosophy, as it is an obvious fact. People only interact with each other on the terms of give and take. The only time people talk with one another is if they want something, whether it be attention, knowledge, compliments, or something else. This philosophy has caused Ryu to become incredibly cynical in nature and robotic in his day to day life, choosing to avoid people unless he himself required something. His natural intellect and stunning diligence make him a model student and a hard worker.

Weapon(s) of Choice/Type: Dual swords/slashing

Persona/Element: Lightning/Physical

Persona Appearance: Kratos the Greek personification of strength takes the form of a winged man in radiant armor wielding a longsword.


"personal arc": Ryu lives alone. His parents died when he was a child and he's been shipped from relative to relative ever since. His constant state of moving around and transferring from school to school has jaded Ryu into a lone wolf, a person who doesn't think he needs the help of anyone for anything. He holds himself somewhat responsible for his parent's death though it was an accident, he also bears an amount of resentment towards himself because of the blame he puts on himself.

Hopefully we get at least one more applicant. I think a cast of 3 characters would be too small lol

THat's fine, I figured your CS was just taking longer than expected. Hopefully you have it ready soon ;P. Anyways, I think I'll wait another two or three days for applications before I make decisions on who's in (if we go over the limit) and then I'll work on an IC intro post.

Wow, this RP looks extremely interesting! I'd definitely love to play a part in it. Although I just signed up for this site, I do have some experience elsewhere. I was wondering if it would be alright with you if I applied since this would not only be my first Advanced RP here, but my first post as well.
