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<-

For once in a while, the Playhouse was relatively lively. It was a joyous occasion for Larsinny. The Psyche-Terrorists who returned from the earlier debacle would notice that the demon wasn't alone like last time. As they entered, laughing and talk of 'good ol' times' could be heard. Through the slosh of sampling alcohol and playful banter, they would notice it was a significantly positive vibe, something that contrasted with the realities they faced the last night. In the midst of their revelry, out of the three of time, Larsinny noticed the newcomers entering, "Ah! There ya' be! Welcome back! Hey, where' that mutt at? Busy burying a bone?"

Tonight there might be a few newcomers. Some were called to the Playhouse. And for the couple that were new, their Personas were drawn to this place, leading them to the Playhouse itself.

"Hooo boy. I can't wait to see what you say about the shit I let you guys talk me into." A familiar voice came as Reiji walked through the door, and leaned towards a table. She was intrigued to see new faces around and smiled as she leaped over the counter much to Larsinny's dismay. Despite several grunts of "Oi, girl!" and other annoyed pleas to stop, she grabbed another smaller bottle and emptied its contents into a tall glass. She wasn't going to drink immediately though, she needed to hear how it all went down from here. She looked to the other new arrivals and chuckled. "More chicks. Can't say I disapprove. And we got a newcom-Oh! Nevermind, I get it now, hahah....oh fuck." It suddenly hit her who they were and she sat at a nearby table, sighing heavily. The other masked folks seemed to reconvene with their talking and essentially ignore her. Jack walked in and took a seat near the back, humming a jovial tune to himself.

Contrary to Aya, Brittany - or rather, Pretty Guardian B - had no idea who these people were. Terrorists, for sure, but none she could recognize so far. Judging from their outgoing demeanor, seemed like Larsinny knew them quite well, unlike last time when he was being antagonized by a stranger (namely a bizarre-looking angel), which definitely explained why the little goat demon was quite lax in the presence of these people. Good. Someone had to be, after all. On the other hand, the cheerful atmosphere could only mean the bad news of their terrible failure didn't seem to have caught his ears yet, as well as the death of one of them.

Hi, Larsinny! And...you all too. I don't think we've met before but if you're friends with Larsinny, then we're on the same side, I guess?”, she said, the joyous attitude still there, albeit hindered for obvious reasons.

Shotaro walked in a bit silently with his hands in his pocket, eyeing the place. He gave an acknowledging nod to aya and patted Jack o the shoulder.  After making eye contact with Brittany, he would then proceed a bit closer to the area that Larsinny was standing at.  He didn't really appreciate what Larsinny said about mentioning the mutt, the dead of good people shouldn't be desecrated, especially when they have no fair way of defending themselves.  "He sacrificed himself to buy us time,  so we are essentially down a team member. Try to associate that mutt with "good thoughts", he might not have died for "The Cause", but he died for his friends, which makes him more of a man then plenty of people that I know.   But the time to mourn..... should now come at another time. There are a few things about yesterday that I wanted to go over with you Larsinny."

However, before Shotaro could even begin, he noticed that there were a few people here. " Who are these people? "

Unison walked in a little behind Shotaro, and simply walked to a table for the moment, Shotaro could talk for now, Unison was busy internally talking to her siblings at the moment, the events of the day needed to be handled and she needed to get them active again, she couldn't be in control all the time, it would be to much of a drain, not to mention that the people around would notice the massive change in her attitude, or perceived change anyway, and so she sat and talked with her siblings in her own mind paying attention to the room and what was said, she would pipe in if asked but at the moment she had things to deal with.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zappa walked in as well, the Personality of Zaku having gone to sleep a while ago and the systems activating and carrying it here, only putting on it's guise once it knew it wasn't observed, the system seemed to know what to do to hide, what needed to be done, and as it walked in, its one eye going back and forth in the visor as it looked about the room at the collected people it only nodded before walking forward, "Greetings....I was informed to come here after an incident earlier in the night....." the robotic voice said as it looked over them all, it seemed they all hid their identity, much like the System thought it too should.

Larsinny seemed to be confused by their statements. "Not "The Cause"? Wait!" He urgently hopped to the top of the table and glared at the group. "Did ya folks fail to beat up Invidia? What happened?!" He seemed clearly upset by the thought of that even being true. Hopefully that wasn't the case. When he said that however, the rest of the group began to stop talking and turned towards them. The Man stared intently at the group in silence, while the woman in the cat mask and the one in yellow remained silent with inquisitive glares. They weren't giving off an antagonistic vibe, but they were indeed curious about it. In a short pause however, the woman in yellow began to speak. "They don't seem very tough to be honest....they got sent to fight Invidia? Damn, wish I had time to show up..."

Gabe rolled his eyes at the woman in yellow, clearly not taking any offense to her words, but not tolerating it either. " Well, it's usually halfhearted opinions like that which brings the worse results. I told you we lost, I didn't say how. " Taking off his top hat and running his hands through his hair, a small tick of Gabe himself, he then placed his hat back on his head. "We were blind-sighted, Invidia is no longer human. He has access to a second transformation that boasts a semi-humanoid appearance of a sword-wielding monster with tattoos. Which bring up the opinion of district leaders, there being two stages of fighting them, with the second stage, they end up losing their weaknesses, and gain the ability to absorb what they are strong too. His entire domain runs on statues bearing masks, which is used as keys to reaching him. Each masks adds a debilitating effect that whittles us down for as long as we carry them, with the demons themselves seemingly adjusting their strategies to take advantage of what crippled us. The deck was rigged, and in the last moments of almost beating him, he cut us down. "

Gabe then put his hands in his pocket. "At the very best, Intel is what's working for us at the time being. We know he's weak to electricity and strong to wind, we know the security isn't overly complicated at night, we know now that district leaders have two stages of fighting them, and we now know in our merry group of terrorists, who has the stomach for this, whose reliable, and who isn't. As harsh as that statement is, that's the reality. "

...alright, so now the failure has caught Larsinny's ears. Great. Brittany felt like a child cornered by adults to confess a prank. Gabe was there too, though she wasn't sure if that was as much of a relief as it should be. Not when he covered all the details, including the unnecessary ones Brittany could seriously pass.

...Tuxedo Mask, that's enough”, she said, with a less than optimistic sigh. “We were close, Larsinny. Then... I don't know how, he got super strong all of a sudden. Like, really. And... it costed one of us...

"It's pretty irrelevant. You lost, plain and simple. How doesn't matter." Larsinny grumbled to himself. "You dolt! He's just gon' change up his strategy! It could be all new next time yee show up!" The man nodded to himself before turning to Larsinny. "Don't worry. I think it was at least a good effort. The crowd for the moment realizes that the Leaders are not untouchable." Whatever he said or how he said it, Larsinny seemed to stop ranting and turned to the man. "If ya say so. But what are we gon' do?!"



The man got from his chair and looked closer at the group that had shown up. Aya herself was chuckling quietly, as Jack took a gander at Skelter back, somewhat intrigued by his presence. "I think that we can use this as a stepping stone to get upheaval even further on our way. If you've heard of me, I go by Skelter. I'm in the same business you are, I also want to overthrow the Queen. However, I think you lack a certain idea." He paused for a moment to let it hang. "Have you considered the help of Demons on your way to the top? They are a formidable force, and I think that they could both useful to command, and useful to prod the masses with. They can push them into reawakening themselves, sounds interesting right?" Aya's masked face perked towards the man in deep fascination. "I like the way you think. Demons are good shit to be messing with if we can put them under our foot. Here that kids? Big guy here has some plans."

"Gambler Shotaro... I mean... I do have some pride in my name. Even after all of this...."

However, getting scolded by Larsinny wasn't something that Gabe was interested in hearing. There was some hope that things could be somewhat similar, but the chances of hitting Invidia a second time and making things  alot more smoother with the intel was starting to sound a bit more null and void due to Larsinny's comments?

"So even our intel was useless? Even with the exterior of his domain? Was it all really for nothing?"

Gabe would tighten his hand into a fist as he looked away, he felt ashamed. At first, he thought that with at least the information that they had, it was possible to bounce back and bring back some honor to Selenus's sacrifice.  However, it was that time that the man with the white hair got up and introduced himself as Skelker.   From the aura he gave off, as well as his name, it was safe to say that this man had some kind of background with fighting the government. However, this new idea involved using demons as tool.

"Forceful reawakening... there is only so much that we know about the persona's we have right now. Were we the lucky ones? Is is everyone capable of this? If the former, what happens to the people who just can't hack it, brain dead?" "  Gabe wasn't in the immediate opposition, he wanted to weigh his options, but he also wanted to see what Skelker meant. "  Skelker, you might have your veteran status as a fellow terrorist,  but what makes you think those demons can be controlled?  Look at us, our whole organization is being run by Larsinny in a way,  the last time we came here, we saw humans transforming into demons. There is a lot that we don't understand about the demons.  I'd rather cycle through the risk of weaponizing the masses in such a way,  serving the purpose of saving the city doesn't come with the cleanup of the steps we took to achieve the means.  What are we replacing the government with?  With so much exposure to demons and mass awakenings, it'll be impossible for people to live a normal life in this city anymore.


Something would then click in Gabe's mind.

"Wait.... was it your idea to force our awakenings too? "

Unison listened in on what was being said, she had thought about it before, working with demons, in fact she still wanted to try that approach, but forcing people to go through this think called awakening? she could already tell that if Tatsui and Selenus had not been there she wouldn't have been able to survive that encounter that triggered her so called awakening, working with demons and forcing this process on people were two different things to her, "We believe the Idea to have merit to a point, forcefully reawakening people could end in disaster, however getting the help of demons and working with the ones that are open to such things is not out of the question, aid in that manner would not be a bad Idea and has been one We have been considering for some time" she said to the room as she looked to Larsinny "Also to answer your previous question, during our attack on Invidia Ragnarok was killed, they bought time for us to escape when we had all been taken out, if not for that I doubt any of us would be here to report back...."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zappa listened and when the subject came up on working with demons they stepped forward, apparently ignored up till this point "Objection, working with Shadows would be most unwise Many are no doubt mindless beasts attacking and killing because they can and have access to easy targets, The ones that wish to help such as this one" she gestured to Larsinny "Are no doubt few and far between, also I object to putting others under this risk of so called forced awakening what ever it may entail" the singular eye on the visor would glow a bright red as she spoke looking right at the one named Skelter as it did so "This plan is only one that harms those that should be freed and may chase them into the arms of the enemy...".

The metallic ring of greaves hitting the floor marks Cecil's entrance, cautiously looking about the area from behind the concealment of his helmet. He recognised just about nobody here...the only person he could call a familiar face was the robot girl from earlier. At least she was alright.
And...that...that was a demon.
Just what had he gotten himself into?

They were already talking as they walked in. Attacks. A death. Nobody was treating the demon in the room as anything other than normal...not even robo-girl. And then, there was the person who introduced themselves as Skelter, who was talking about overthrowing the Queen and enlisting demons. Using them as an army, as well as to...awaken people?
...was he on about the kind of thing that had happened earlier to him?
He didn't know enough here. There just wasn't enough to go off of.

He nearly speaks up, before stopping. This...was dangerous. This armour hid his features, but that didn't mean any more layers of separation would go amiss.
For now, it was worth doing a little more to make him less immediately recognisable. He couldn't change his voice, but he could at least try to sound a little different. It might throw them off a little if he needed it.
I can't believe I'm even thinking about this.
He spends a little while mouthing words silently to himself, until he feels comfortable actually speaking out. When he finally speaks up, his usual manner of speech has shifted, a metallic ring added to the words by his helmet. "You're talking of many things that I've yet to be informed about."
I really am doing this, aren't I?
"I was told to come here for answers, and right now, none seem forthcoming. I appreciate that this is a poor moment to be demanding information, but when there's talk of demons, revolution and forceful awakening, it is not a time to be jumping into the conversation without a basic level of knowledge about the situation."

Cecil gestures to Zappa. "Without any information to work with, I must agree with her. Regardless of how useful they might potentially be, it sounds like a needless risk for something not particularly feasible to start, whatever your plans are."

"I am willing to bet that Demons are more able to be subjugated than you know. Look at this old goat." He nudged Larsinny who would shout angrily, which generated a snort from the woman in yellow. "He told me about the business you bailed him out of recently. I think there's more to the Queen's police force than just the Cadets. A lot more. I don't think that Demons are that hard to control. They are easy enough to take on, that's how you guys have survived. Well, save for your friend; my condolences."

"You also assume I mean to be forceful. I never said I would be forcing them to awaken, nor would I harm them. They aren't my enemy. But I do think that Demons regardless of whether we also enlist the help of the people or not. First and foremost we could partner up, and work together to find this avenue. This life for us has never been normal; doing what I am suggesting won't make it any more absurd than it already is. What do you say? Are any of you interested in attempting to subjugate Demons in the slightest? Any at all?" He did remain silent and allow others to say their objections or affirmations.


>Who wants to agree with Skelter and join him?

>Who opposes the idea and won't join him?

Ricky had evidentally managed to find his way to the playhouse, guided by his persona but without any understanding of what the fuck was going on. Whoever saw him would see a strange but very well dressed, smooth, charismatic and conveniently attractive young man masked by a bizarre head wrap with an eye on it. Much like the styles of Naruto and Bleach Bankais.

As Ricky would walk in he'd listen in on the conversation, this strange man was trying to rally these people who happened to be in other ridiculous costumes to join him. Uh hello, is it too late for me to join the party? Despite the fact that Ricky had awakened to actually being able to be relevant to the main story, it did not detract from his fatal character flaw of being awkward as fuck. I got sent over here to find answers, what's this talk about subjugating demons? I had one of them try to attack me and a bunch of people out of nowhere, though the idea of having them not trying to kill me does sound...Better. Even better to have them on my side. Ricky was sweating on the inside profusely, just what the fuck was he getting himself into by agreeing with this man. On one hand he wanted answers, but on the other hand how would he get them unless he took a chance and trusted someone? Out of all the costumed weirdos in the room, he looked pretty sane with his speech.

At the same time on the inside Ricky didn't just feel scared, but aggressive. As if something was starting to take root in his mind. He wasn't just nervous now, but more willing to get violent for his own survival by whatever means necessary.

>Yeah sure I'll agree with him for now.

"Demons indeed are a source of possibility we must explore. I'll take you up on the offer, sir." The golden knight spoke up from the entrance to the playhouse as he walked in, his gleaming rapier resting at his side.
