Current Events
Updated: 8/18/2017

Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

More to come

PostSubject: The Beginning of a Mystery   Tue Feb 19, 2013 5:57 pm

Awaiting the two new guests, Velvet Attendant Yu would be standing by his master Igor. On the opposite side of his master stood Justine, who carelessly flipped through the pages of her Persona Compendium. Igor awaited his guests anxiously. Leaning forward in his chair, he placed his elbows upon the table that was placed just alittle ways infront of him. His bloodshot eyes focused on the doorway that provided entry into the Velvet Room from Limbo. What was so important that they'd place a doorway smack dab in their faces? Well, that was for the Persona-Users to find out once entering.

If the two were to arrive, Igor would let a wide smile come across his face. "Welcome to the Velvet Room. I am Igor. These are my two assistants Justine, and Yu. It seems our number of guests have grown by one. Fascinating, truly fascinating." The male Attendant by the name of Yu would clear his throat to send a sign to his master that he wished to speak. Igor, being all too curious, would lean back in his chair. "Ah yes, excuse me. It seems my Attendant has summoned you here this day. Thus, I am just an overseer of the words exchanged." Immediately once Igor stopped speaking, the male Attendant would step forward with a smile on his face. He seemed quite anxious to speak to the two guests. "I am Yu. My role here in the Velvet Room is to inform you of phenomenons and notable situations that occur in your world, and Limbo. For that soul purpose, that is why I have summoned you here." The golden eyed Attendant would place a hand on his chest, as his gaze would look towards Ejji. "Your descent into Limbo did not occur from your Shadow dragging you over itself. Do you have any memory of before you arrived in that room? I've been informed by my sister Elizabeth that some people are being thrown into Limbo by others who can use Personas aswell. We have reason to suspect you were a target of this other Persona user, but why they targeted you, we do not know as of yet. Whatever the case, Limbo must be removed from your world entirely. If it continues to linger, only more and more people will fall victim to the Shadows it harbors. And with the possibility of other Persona users pulling the strings behind such a place, its power could be used to bring serious harm to the delicate balance of the conscious and subconscious realms."

At this time, Justine would step forward in the place of Yu. "We are here to guide you towards the truth behind Limbo. Why did it suddenly appear? Who made it? Who's using it to dispose of others? Can it be destroyed? All these questions need answers. And once you find your answers, will you have enough resolve to make your final decisions based on them? No matter the case, this Velvet Room will be your safe haven to discuss any information regarding the matter. We will continue to assist you to the best of our abilities. Oh, and before I forget..." The woman would walk behind the one named Igor's chair, and would then come back around and walk up to Naito. Placing two items in his hands, she'd walk back to her master's chair. "That is for a mission complete. Congratulations, Naito-kun. However, this is just the beginning of a bold journey. You both will need all the help you can get, if you wish to save Ueitawa and the people you love from the looming threat. There are sure to be clues scattered across Limbo."

Igor would now reclaim the reigns of the conversation. "I believe that's all the time we have as of now. Next time, do visit us of your own accord. I expect you two to overcome hardships with your newly awakened powers." The door back to the real world would begin to emanate a bright light, as the proprietors of the Velvet Room simply watched on.

Ejji would enter a strange room, filled with strange people. "Filled" perhaps was not the best word for it, but there were three people there nonetheless. The room itself was somewhat like a plane interior, but spacious enough for everyone present. Ejji's first reaction seeing the one who called himself Igor was to stare a bit, facinated by the man's strange appearance. However his attention was quickly drawn to the assistants afterwards. He had to cover up a bit of fear with his calm facade - since the two had yellow eyes just like the Shadow Ejji did, but they seemed to be different from his repressed inner-feelings.

After listening to the three talk, Ejji had become somewhat confused. Naito, who was already here when Ejji stepped inside, seemed like he knew these people a bit, so perhaps he had an earlier encounter. The Reiguu however had questions - he hoped Igor and his attendants would provide answers. He decided to begin before Naito could say or do anything.

"Excuse me, but what are these Persona you speak of? Does that have something to do with the tall phantoms both Naito and now myself possess? What kind of power is that?" he voiced his first question, aking some hints from earlier words that Yu used. "And just what is Limbo? The room I was in is not the whole of it, right?" Ejji pressed.

Then he made a small pause, understading that he may have come off as a bit rude. He decided to add one more thing. "I'm sorry for taking some of your time with this, even though it is short, but I truly do not understand yet. Please, I need an explanation." he emplored.

He did not wish to jump headfirst into the unknown and these people seemed kind enough to explain the basics, at least. He could not go yet.

Pocketing the items, Naito would cross his arms over his chest and close his eyes next. Apparently this Ejji guy had alot of questions. "A Persona is your inner strength given form. It takes the appearance of your psyche, and can be used as a facade to protect you from life's hardships." Naito spoke with his usual calm tone, not bothering to open his eyes and look towards the one named Ejji. "Those 'phantoms' are what Personas are. You know have the ability to summon yours on instinct to protect yourself, and the ones you care about. With your potential now unlocked, you can travel to this place, and Limbo, through various doorways spread across the Ueitawa regions specific districts. They're quite easy to find..." Opening his eyes halfway, he'd shoot a glare towards the other Persona user. "That world you were just in is Limbo. You can get there by using red doorways, like the blue doorway that brought us here. These fools don't know anything about Limbo, and neither do I. That's what the mystery is. It's much bigger than that small room I found you in. Infact, it's as big as Ueitawa itself. Quite a spectacle, but covered in Shadows looking to kill anyone who sets foot in it." With this said, Naito would begin to make his way towards the exit of the Velvet Room. However, before leaving he'd look over his shoulder at Ejji. "Take my advice and stay out of Limbo, or this business. I won't be held responsible if you lose your life trying to play hero." And with those final words, Naito would exit the room and head back to the real world.

Before Justine to respond to the questions, the one named Naito would make it his priority to answer instead. Her face made a slight pout as she pushed the book against her chest with a sigh. "It's as our royal prince says. There isn't much we can speak of as of yet. Perhaps if you find my sister Elizabeth in your world, she'll have more information for you. Or you may ask Naito-kun, as he seems quite informed about your world's current situation. We'll be sure to stay in contact if we learn anything new. Now as my master has said before, our time is scarce this meeting. Please visit us again another time." Justine would raise her hand and wave to the new guest as a sort of "goodbye" gesture.

Ejji simply listened to Naito explain the situation - everything about the Personas and Limbo. He also got confirmation from Justine, the felame attendant of the Velvet Room. The bit about the new powers Ejji now possessed was somewhat clear, and there seemed not much to add, but the Reiguu heir couldn't help but feel unsatisfid with the answer. It was still quite vague, and if the young man was to solve any kind of mystery - it seems he would have to find out things on his own.
The information on Limbo was truly lacking, but it seemed that it was the main mystery to be solved. That and finding the one who threw him here - that would be his drive for now. He had a score, and he would settle it.

Ejji turned to look at the three weird individuals residing in the Velvet Room and bowed slightly, showing more manners than Naito. "I await our next meeting. Goodbye."

Ejji walked out, deciding to ignore Naito's words. He wasn't going to play her anyway - just get to the bottom of this. But first, testing out Limbo and finding others... others like him.
