Topic: Time for a new fantasy sim

Hi all.

I recently found a game franchise that would make awesome roleplaying if there was enough interest in it, so here's a quick overview of an idea.

The year is 2016, and the new school year is about to begin. You enter the boarding hostel that will be your home for the next months, and warily look around yourself. Welcome to the world of Persona.

In this world, each person has a Persona, a physical manifestation of their personality, which they can call on to help them in certain circumstances. In order to call out ones persona, one must will forth a card that represents their persona, and crush it within their palm. This will cause the Persona to manifest, and it can then be directed to attack, heal, guard, or any other number of actions. Please note, each Persona has a different function, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses.

The story will revolve around two plotlines, the Waking World, and Hel. The Waking World will be during the day, attending school, meeting new people, and advancing the plot. Hel is the world of the Shadows, evil creatures that appear suddenly for no clear reason. You and the other Persona users must journey into Hel, battling Shadows, and your own worst nightmares, in order to stop a sinister plot.

If you have any questions, or this sounds like a Sim you'd be interested in, let me know smile

This will also be a sim that works with people coming and going, due to the transient nature of 'school'.

Also, rather than using an Evoker, I have altered the means to summon the Persona.

I'm really tempted to try. Unless I over extend myself

"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow you head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?"

Hey! I thought it was just to help GM?

Re: Time for a new fantasy sim

Whatever gave you that idea? tongue You can help with GMing if you like, though without knowing the source material you may struggle to GM properly

Re: Time for a new fantasy sim

Okay, so we have two interested, and one "Possible maybe, I thought it was for GMing", so can we get a show of hands to who is actually game for this? There's normally like, 7 or 8 characters, but as I doubt we'll draw a crowd like that, a steady 3-4 will suffice, and the rest will be NPCs smile

Re: Time for a new fantasy sim

I am definitely tempted. But on the other hand, I am afraid to be unable to post regularly, and...

Oh, well. It's too interesting. I'll do my best. Count me in.

Just some questions. You mentioned cards, so are we talking about Persona 4? That is, one Persona per player, like the game NPC, or more than one, like the protagonist? And are they fixed, or able to evolve?

Re: Time for a new fantasy sim

Way I was originally thinking with the Evoker, was Persona 3 esque, but with using the card example from Persona 4 it'll create a nice disconnect between the two.

One persona per player, however you will access to a Ultimate Persona when you reach closure in your personal story (of which each person will have one)

There'll be one Wild Card Carrier, an NPC who will work like the Protagonist. I'd also say we can call this game a go, with three yeses, and I have three maybes, so I feel we can pull the lever on this one.

When the thread is put up, I'll start putting up information pertaining to personas, storylines and how the mechanics will work smile
