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!

PostSubject: Man of Flesh and Cogs (Milton's Awakening)   Thu Nov 09, 2017 12:08 am

"Milton, may I see you for a moment?"
Milton gave a light sigh as he made his way into Dr. Klein's office. Seeing how his day was completely cleared of any errands to run for the techheads at the lab or the good doctor herself, he was finally going to step down onto the planet Junction was now touching down on. Everyone at the lab was meticulously examining him and his weaponry to make sure he was at his fullest fighting capabilities. Instead, the doctor had to pull him aside for one more errand...


~~Dr. Meli Klein~~

"Listen, Milton. I know you're excited to go journeying outside Junction, but don't forget your primary objective is documentation. Any information we can gather on our surroundings is worthwhile, but don't go risking your neck. Your suit can only exert so much energy in one day, and there certainly aren't any Stream chargers down there. Find out what you can on the inhabitants of this planet and report back when you have suitable findings. Understood?"


Once Milton nodded in agreement to the terms, he ended up running into his childhood friend Anni. Though she was quite soft-spoken and her frail body was less adaptive to the mechanics, she had a kind heart and a surprisingly strategic mindset. She held up one of the chocolate covered nuts Milton had gotten her and popped one between his lips.


~~Anni Perch~~

"Here, Milly. You need all the energy you can. Can you bring me a yummy fruit or flower? Oh, but be safe, okay?"

"Absolutely, Anni. I'll be back real soon."

With the girls stepping aside to let him leave the office room, Milton ran as fast as his feet could take him to transport down to the clearing Junction had dropped into. With his weapons at the ready and his eyes scanning the surroundings, Milton was ready to step out to an adventure beyond his expectations...

"I sure hope you don't plan on using those things there kid..." The transport driver would sigh as he watched Milton prepare his weapons. Sighing a gurgally breath the neon purple slime being would turn it's attention back to the sky's, carful to make sure it touched down in the designated landing zones. "You're not JPD... so are ya one of them Seekers I keep hearing about? If not you're probably gunna have a bad time out there kid..." The transport touched down gingerly and the doors opened with a light hiss. "Come back here and shoot off a flair when ya need pick up. Don't start any wars and don't get yerself killed alright?"


Milton would be faced with an entrance to the woods to his east, Junction to his west. A field to his south and an overcast path to his north. Where will he go?

Milton sat in the transport ship with the look of serious determination. For the first time, he'd be out in the field, exploring these new lands for whatever inhabitants may end up feuding with their arrival. With his blade folded up into the small razor cutter in his grasp and his repeater hiding away in his hip, Milton hopped out of his seat and waved the driver off.

"No worries, sir. War's the last thing I would want, followed by termination."

Finally alone on the outskirts of Junction and the woodlands surrounding them, Milton turned to look at the forest entrance just to his east. If anything, he would be familiar with either a sprawling megatropolis like Luminia or the Blume city of Stream Springs. Better to enter where he was familiar.

As soon as he entered the wood, a feeling of being watched would overcome Milton. However, if he was being watched or followed, whatever was tailing him gave him no indications. The path before him stretched on deeper into the wood. A loud cawing and hooting heard from further down the path... To the north a loud clanging sound could be faintly heard over the normal ambient sounds of the Forrest.

"Hmm? That clanging... Is it a machine? Operating machinery indicates civilization. Beat be in guard."

As Milton investigated the clunking sound from the north, the feeling of being watched only intensified... As if the woods itself was keeping an eye on his progress. As he fallowed the sounds, he would eventually come to a large circular clearing, at the center, an odd device hummed gently. The thumping sound, it appeared, came from the men and women in full body suits surrounding the machine, some guarding, others interacting with it.


None of the workers have seemed to notice Milton yet...

Well, Milton was correct. There was a gathering of people around the machine, both guarding and operating the humming device that vaguely resembled extractors from his planet. On one hand, this would an excellent opportunity for diplomacy. But on the off chance he wasn't allowed to be here, he would have to comply. Milton kept his weapons sheathed and out of obvious view as he approached one of them from a safe distance.

"Hello? Can you point me to the nearest settlement?"

Upon voicing his question and emerging from the foliage, nearly a dozen sets of eyes would fall on Milton as the focus of the group of suited individuals was taken form their work and placed solely on him. For a short moment neither side dared to move or speak as only the loud hum of the device filled the void of sound. However, one of the workers would suddenly call out in what sounded like a mix of fear and exacerbation. "Morgasimer! We got another Fish outa Water over here!" The voice came slightly distorted and almost computerized, and was followed by another equally as apparently synthetic.


"I told you lot to stop callen em that! They have names ya stupid gits!"

The form the voice belonged to made it's way from the crowd and towards Milton, what looked to be a harpoon gun raised and trained in his direction."OI! You! Who the hell are you and what the hell are you doing so far from Potts-Field! We had an agreement you little shit!"

If they had heard Milton's question it was ether ignored or failed to register... however he did succeed in getting their attention.

Milton was stationary when the crowd reacted in silent surprise at his arrival. Were they afraid of him? Curious maybe? Well, the fear in their voices became apparent when this "Morgasimer" fellow was being called to meet him. Milton's diplomacy was suddenly put on the line when he found a regular steel harpoon trained on his body. His battle systems were whirring up slowly, but he kept his blade safely out of sight yet easily within reach in an instant. But before any damage needed to be made, the least he could do is explain his situation.

"Hello, Morgasimer. You may call me Milton. I came to survey the area, so I'm not actually from the area. If my presence is offending you, could you direct me to this Potts-Field place? Secondly, are you a mechanical being?"

"Am I a mech-...Milton huh? Damn Milton... You must have been breathing pretty heavy huh? Look, if you forgot where Potts-Field is we can probably Help you get back home."

Morgasimer let their arm fall to their side with a frustrated sigh. Several of the workers around Morgasimer visibly relaxed and returned to their work in maintaining the strange device. "Just stand over there and don't touch anything alright? Once we're done we have to let Fel know anyway, you can tag along with us when we-"

Morgasimer's words were cut short however by a loud, sickening crack emanating from the woods behind Milton. Before Morgasimer could voice concern, however, a large beast broke from the treeline a mere twenty feet from where the two stood.


"SKRRRREEEEEEEYYYYonk~!"

The workers stood in a stunned silence for only a moment before scattering to the treeline opposite the beast. Those who were armed stood their ground before the colossal arthropod, firing similar harpoon guns as the one Milton had pointed at him a few moment's prior. As the harpoons bounced harmlessly off the creature's carapace, it let out a savage roar and proceeded to bite down on one of the soldiers, encasing their entire top half inside it's mighty jaw. The soldier let out a short scream before being silenced by a squelching crunch. The beast reared back to its full height, taking the top half of the man with it, leaving the bottom half below in a slowly growing red puddle."D-Damn it!"" Morgasimer shouted, Milton long forgotten as they charged off towards the combat.

The feeling of being watched... It continues to grow in Milton... Almost as if a voice was reaching out to him...

What will Milton do?

Milton sighed in relief as Morgasimer stopped threatening him with the sharpened harpoon only to go on high alert when the earth shook and the trees crashed down on the path he just arrived from. Milton felt his battle instincts running in his system as the workers divided from running to protection or fighting the mountainous beast, Milton stuck to the floor as he saw the unlucky worker being bitten in half and eaten with no difficulty.

He had to fight, but he had to run. He had to live, but his programming was screaming for him to run and live.
"Afraid... always afraid."
Milton felt something unusual running in his body. It was an unfamiliar stirring in his chest, a tug at the back of his mind. His sword was already at the ready, extended to full length and his repeater fully charged.
"Foreign to both man and machine. The Frankenstein's monster to your world. Embrace who you are. Don't run from the nightmares... rule them. Only you know the truth.

For I am thou, and thou art I. Arcana Trigger... activate."


All at once, his body surged with a dark aura. Milton gripped his head as his two feet trudged over to the monstrous beast. His eyes glowed red with the restrictions on his battle functions falling away in an instant. The tension in Milton's brain rose to a peak, loud grunting and shouting coming from the mechanical man as parts of his skin reverted to his true metal form. He spoke the fateful words that released the fear in his mind.

"Rise, Phobetor! PERSONA!"

There was no more doubt in his mind. No reason to fear, no desire to run. Only to show this beast who it was dealing with. The dark aura hanging off his body rose up into the ragged robed specter named Phobetor.
"Come, Milton. Let us show this beast the fear you have lived with. Let them crumble under your power."

As the massacre continued... Not a soul in the clearing paid Milton any mind, their focus completely on their own survival.

However, one set of eyes were torn from their original goal, the death of their companions and the ever mounting dread long forgotten as the dull glowing red of their helmet was unable to tare itself from the being Milton had just summoned

"A persona user?..."


This World Weeps For It's Wounds.




The Beast rears it's full hight having sensed an awakening of Ego. Milton can no loner flee from this encounter.

As the Mystic energy given off by Milton's persona flies wildly off course, the beast wastes no time in beginning it's own attack. Rearing back for a moment, the Avatar Of The Forrest let out a loud screach before diving in to deliver a devastating bite onto Milton.

"Shitshitshit ShitShit SHIT SHIT SHIIIIIT!"

A rather agitated voice would ring from Milton's side.

Fallowed by a rather rough shove.


"Typhoid Mary!"

The sudden shove would knock Milton from the path of the attack, which was instead taken full force by Morgasimer who's body was bathed in a dull brown light, the glowing etherial child on their back seeming to shimmer in the daylight. Their suit's armor took the brunt of the impact, chipping The Avatar Of The Forrest's fangs, causing it to pull back slightly and regard the two Persona users with a curious eye. "You! Explain now before I feed you to this damn thing! How the hell do you have a Persona!?"

Morgasimer has joined the battle.
