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

I’m afraid you’ve got the wrong impression. I am not a monster, merely the sound of the rage which lies within a lion’s heart. The universe tells me what song I shall play next, and I do nothing but obey its wishes.

True Self

True Form Name The Devil Of Georgia

Arcana Hermit

[bTrue Form Appearance[/b]

Ruben’s true self could probably be best described to the outside world as a demon-like creatue with bright red skin and black decorating his knees, the wings on his back and his face. It’s a rather terrifying sight, with his jagged tail and black claws and teeth, but somehow, this creature is still capable of holding and playing his treasured instrument. Despite how horrifying Ruben’s true appearance may be, he still doesn’t lose any of his grace in his movements, though his beauty in the execution of his movements is well matched with his fierceness.

Form Background: Ruben's true form is an ironic twist on an old tale sung in a fiddle tune called "The Devil Went down Georgia". In this story, a devil plays a musical duel with a fiddler player in a dangerous bet: the demon's violin of gold against the other man's soul. As the original tale goes, the fiddler Johnny was the one to win the contest....but not in this case.

Strengths: Electricity

Weaknesses: Earth

Passive Boosts: The Personas of the Hermit Arcana are commonly Personas excelling in Mental-Ailment skills (such as Panic, Charm, etc). Users have a 15% more chance of causing Mental-Ailments.

Shadow Skill List:

Skill 1:     Invigorate 1 | Recovers 3 SP on each user turn | Passive | Tier 1

Skill 2:  Evil Smile | 25% chance of inflicting the Fear ailment to all enemies. 50% chance fear may stop their next attack. Wears off after 3 turns. | 10 SP | Tier 2

Skill 3:   Sexy Dance | 25% chance of inflicting the Charm ailment to all enemies. If successful, enemy will attack allies (with soulbound weapon) or heal user for 3 turns. | 10 SP | Tier 2

Skill 4: (Unlocked once defeating ten Shadows; Must be Tier 2 or below)
Skill 5: (Must have used your Shadow Frenzy ability to defeat atleast three enemies in one battle; Must be Tier 3 or lower)
Skill 6: (Unlocked once defeating thirty Shadows; Must be Tier 3 or lower)
Skill 7: (Unlocked once using your Shadow Frenzy to successfully defeat a Persona-User/ASSW/ or Attendant; Must be a Tier 4 Skill or Lower)
Skill 8: (Unlocked after defeating your fifth Dungeon Master and defeating 60 Shadows in combat; Must be a Tier 4 Skill or Lower)

Special Ability:

Ability Name: Shadow Frenzy

Appearance while in Frenzy: If Ruben seemed to be lost in his own world before when he played, he is gone from this earth completely when he enters this mode. Somehow, everything just flows naturally. Eyes closed, he moves from one song to the next effortlessly as he chains his mental aliments,  playing with more passion than ever from his beloved golden fiddle. Every step he makes is in beat with what he plays, as a display of horrifying beauty as the devil like creature plays his music.

Description: The Shadow Selves have a special ability called the "Shadow Frenzy" allowing them to cast skills at half the price, and link Tier skills like a chain. For Example: If a Shadow Self were to go into a Frenzy, they could cast a Tier 1 skill and immediately follow that Tier 1 skill with a Tier 2 skill in the same post. The only requirement is that the skills being chained must be the same type, such as Garu to Garula, or Magaru to Magarula. Also you can only link up to three skills total. This Shadow Frenzy only lasts for three (3) turns, and once it ends it can not be used again the entire topic and all following skills will be weaker by 50% (unless a special item is used).

Description: Due to his heavy musical background and the fact that Ruben's skills are tied directly to his instrument, he is able to play an introduction to a symphony that increases the chances of all his mental aliments effecting his enimes by 10% for the next 5 turns in order to balance out the fact that he doesn't use his soul bound weapon to physically attack unless absolutely necessary.
