Current Events
Updated: 6/20/2016

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, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! 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 older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

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<-

PostSubject: The Arcana (Strengths of Arcana Types)   Tue Jan 15, 2013 6:58 pm

    The Arcana

    The Arcana directly relate to your character's personality, and over all alignment. Below is the list of Arcana available for use so far. Each have their strengths over one another. Do try to match them up with your character's personality to the best of your ability. This will help the staff in determining how your own Shadow will correspond with you.

    Fool



    The Fool represents innocence, divine inspiration, madness, freedom, spontaneity, inexperience, chaos, and creativity.

    Pros: Users of this Arcana are the "Jack of all Trades", allowing them to use any skills. Users of this Arcana get a 15% boost in one skill type of any kind.

    Magician



    The Magician Arcana is commonly associated with action, initiative, self-confidence, manipulation and power (more specifically, the power to harness one's talents.)

    Pros: Personas excelling towards Magic, particularly towards Fire-based element. Users get a latent 15% boost in Fire-based skills.

    Priestess



    Portrayed as an old woman with a closed book, the Priestess Arcana is a symbol of hidden knowledge or other untapped power, wisdom, female mystery and magic.

    Pros: The Personas of the Priestess Arcana are commonly associated with healing and support attributes. Users get a latent 15% boost in healing skills or support skills.

    Empress



    The Empress represents prosperity, creativity, sexuality, abundance, fertility and comfort (most often in helping maintain peace around them like an ideal mother would.)

    Pros: Personas of the Empress Arcana are often Personas excelling in Ice-based attacks with healing powers also relatively common. Users get a latent 15% boost in ice-based skills or healing skills.

    Emperor



    The Emperor symbolizes the desire to control one's surroundings, and its appearance could suggest that one is trying too hard to achieve this, possibly causing trouble for others; some elements in life are just not controllable.

    Pros: Emperor Arcana are Personas typically excelling in lightning-based and physical attacks. Users of this Arcana have a 15% boost in lightning based skills or physical-based strike attacks.

    Hierophant



    The Hierophant is a symbol of education, authority, conservatism, obedience to rules and relationship with the divine.

    Pros: The Personas of the Hierophant Arcana have no weaknesses, but no particular strengths as well. SP and Luck are given a latent 15% boost.


    Lovers



    The Lovers Arcana initially represented two paths life could lead to, and thus a symbol of standing at a crossroad and needing to make a decision. Today, however, it is portrayed more of a symbol of love and romantic relationships, although it can also be a symbol of finding agreement with an ordinary friend or even two conflicting elements within.

    Pros: The Personas of the Lovers Arcana are commonly associated with Support-Healing attributes. Users have a latent 15% boost in either healing or support skills.

    Chariot



    The Chariot Arcana is a symbol of victory, conquest, self-assertion, control, war and command.

    Justice



    Portrayed as a woman holding a sword and balance, the Justice Arcana symbolizes a strict allegory of justice, objectivity, rationality and analysis.

    Pros: The Personas of the Justice Arcana are commonly Personas excelling in Light-based affinities. Users have a latent 15% boost in light-based skills.

    Pros: 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.

    Fortune



    Portrayed as a wheel with different animals wearing wealthy and beggarly clothes up and down the wheel, the Fortune Arcana symbolizes Fate and varying luck, fortunes and opportunities. What goes up will go down, what goes down will go up. Bearers of the Fortune Arcana are often individuals who roll with life's punches and/or seize their own destiny, regardless of their surroundings.

    Pros: The Personas of the Fortune Arcana are well based in Wind based skills. Users have a latent 15% boost in wind-based skills.

    Strength



    Portrayed as a young woman holding up a terrifying beast (more often a lion), the Strength Arcana symbolizes an imagery beyond the Beast And Beauty, and is associated with the morality about the stronger power of self-control, gentleness, courage and virtue over brute force. In tarot readings, it can also represent creative or physical energy that needs to be or is about to be unleashed, sometimes out of desire to be recognized.

    Pros: The Personas of the Strength Arcana are commonly Personas excelling in Physical attributes. Users have a latent 15% boost in physical-based skills or soul bound weaponry attacks.

    Hanged Man



    The Hanged Man Arcana is associated with self-sacrifice for the sake of enlightenment, the bindings that makes one free, paradoxes and hanging between heaven and earth. Hanged Man characters may be self-sacrificial, but are more often notable for being caught between two different extremes or parties.

    Pros: The Persona of the Hanged Man Arcana are commonly Personas excelling in survivability. Users have a latent 15% boost in health and defense.

    Devil



    Portrayed as a hermaphrodite devil over two naked and chained figures, the negative aspect of the Devil Arcana represents the urge to do selfish, impulsive, violent things and be slave to ones' own impulse and feelings. Occasionally, it is also portrayed as a symbol of temptation. The positive aspect, however, represents a healthy bond or commitment.

    Pros: The Persona of the Devil Arcana are commonly Persona excelling in support skills. Users have a latent 15% boost in buff/debuff skills.

    Tower



    Portrayed as a tower stricken by lightning, from which two small figures fall down; a straight Tower of Babel allegory about pride preceding the fall. The Tower Arcana is commonly associated to overly arrogant, prejudiced and authoritarian organization, which walk to their own ironic demise.

    Pros: The Persona of the Tower Arcana are commonly Persona excelling in physical-based affinities. Users have a latent 15% boost in damage resistance against physical-based skills and a 15% boost to their Ppstr stat.

    Pros: The Persona of the Moon Arcana are commonly Persona excelling in Physical-based attacks. Users have a latent 15% boost in pierce-based skills and pierce-based soul bound weaponry attacks.

    Sun

    Pros: The Persona of the Sun Arcana are commonly Persona excelling in Light and Fire-based attacks. Users have a latent 15% boost in Light or Fire-based skills.

    The World



    The World Arcana is the second most powerful arcana. It often appears as the final triumph arcana, creating miracles and aiding players who have found their resolve. Portrayed as a young woman (or hermaphrodite, depending on deck) surrounded by figures of an angel, a bull, an eagle, and a lion (representations of the four elements in transcendent form, as well as the symbols of the four Evangelists Luke, Matthew, John, and Mark respectively), The World Arcana is a representation of the world's totality, the symbol of fulfillment, wholeness, and harmony. The World Arcana is commonly associated with Social Links, where its power is based upon the players bonds with others.

    NOTE** You cannot choose this Arcana to start with, as it is closed. Only through plot events and maxed social links can this Arcana be unlocked. It will be directly related to your Ultimate Persona.

    Pros: The Personas of the World Arcana are well based in everything. Thus, they get a 15% boost across the entire board excluding the boost you already have from being a part of the first Arcana type you had chosen.

Additional Arcana


Excluding Judgement, the other Arcanas on this sheet will be available to be chosen for your character

Jester



The Jester Arcana is the equivalent of the Fool Arcana, numbered 0. The Jester symbolizes much of what the Fool symbolizes--ignorance, spontaneity, and freedom--but in a suppressed form. In the case of the Jester, the querent is misguided and unwilling to work with others, in contrast to the Fool, who is compatible with everyone. The Jester is a prankster clown which is a variation of a Fool. Furthermore a Jester acts like a fool instead of genuinely being a fool.

Pros: Those of the Jester Arcana are a spinning wheel. Where the Fool can control what their 15% boost is focused on, those of the Jester cannot. At the start of each battle, the boost they will receive will be randomnized between all of the boosts of the other Arcanas, but because of this, the boost is raised to 25%


Lust



Hunger symbolizes the danger of losing control, of being consumed by power. The card also implies strength, but strength which comes through Dominance. It is not true power, but the pure bliss of abusing power.

Pros: Those of the Lust Arcana have a 15% boost to Terra skills


Temperance



Portrayed as a woman with angel wings mixing up the water of two cups, one blue, the other red, the Temperance Arcana is a symbol of synthesis, prudence, harmony, and the merging of opposites.

Gameplay-wise, the Personas of the Temperance Arcana are often well-rounded Personas. Personas of the Temperance Arcana are mythological figures associated with balance and moderation. The Temperance Arcana is primarily home to mythological beasts rather than human figures.

Characters of the Temperance Arcana are often struggling to find a balance in their lives and in their hobbies.

Pros: Each stat gets a 7% boost


Aeon



A common theme for characters representing the Aeon Arcana is their attempts to fully understand themselves, as well as the world around them. In both of the Aeon Arcana's appearances, the Social Link characters in question were unfamiliar with the way the real world works, and struggled to discover their own place in this unfamiliar world.

Pros: Passive skills get a 15% boost (Regenerative/Healing skills are boosted by 5%, Boost/Amp skills are boosted by 10%)

Magus



The Magus Arcana is the equivalent of the Magician Arcana, numbered I. Contrasting to the Magician who's focused on oneself, the Magus indicates the intricate and complex web of influences that binds the Universe to itself, and to all else. They look to shift events and make the world change for themselves instead of the other way around.

Pros: All mutated Skills get a 25% boost in potency


Judgement



The Judgment Arcana, in tarot, is associated with realizing one's calling, gaining a deep understanding of life, and a feeling of acceptance and absolution.

In gameplay, the Judgement Arcana is commonly associated with a balance of Light and Darkness. Figures of the Judgment Arcana are usually related to Judgment Day myths, or are gods tied directly to the judgment of humankind.

This is an Arcana you cannot start with or claim as your own, as it refers to your bonds with your team, and how far you're willing to seek the answers life presents you.
