Okay, so if you've read the Taking Ideas topic, then you might already know what I'm going to say but if you don't, I've long deleted that message. But here, it will be a bit more organized and the ideas a little more focused. I will warn you though, while not this may not be a spoiler, just a basis, you might not want to read this if you really want to be put on a ride, but then you wouldn't understand what is going on, so I guess it doesn't matter. So I'm going to put this down in the most organized way possible. Plot:
So here is the basic plot so far, at least, what you'll all learn very quickly. Even more people have been disappearing than normal in the Ueitawa Region. Has the culprit behind this all been doing double the work? It's possible, but a strange tower has been found in Limbo, either the Velvet Room or Nyarlahotep will instruct their Users/Children to investigate. Even without investigating, the culprit behind this strange tower will reveal themselves soon enough. Let's just say that the tower's owner has gotten bored with Philemon and Nyarlahotep's conflict. It isn't going fast enough, nothing is really happening. This new enemy decided to spice things up.
But this new enemy isn't just concerned with current Users, no, the new enemy wishes to create new Users herself. No User/Child is safe until this tower is dealt with. Enemy Users:
So how is this enemy going to get new Users? Why, she'll force them to awaken, of course. Philemon and Nyarlahotep are not the only deities that can create Persona Users. Of course, she will not do it like the other two, no, she wishes to make this a little more enjoyable and safe for her. How? Mind control of course! Those who "make a pact" with her are under her control. Is there a way to get out of this control... Maybe. But until it's figured out, then they are trapped under her spell.
Enemy Users will get their own name and color for their Usernames during the event. They can only become Enemy Users once they have three good threads, just like everyone else. They will have their own "Awakening," too. In the end, once they're freed, they can choose to side with Philemon or Nyarlahotep, but they do not need to reawaken.
Enemy Users do not need to make a special Persona, as long as they have either a respective Initial or Tainted Persona and three good threads, they are good to go. The Tower:
The tower, which will not be named yet, is the main setting of the side event. It has its own door to Limbo which will be marked differently from other doors. Once inside, there will be a lobby to the Upper Floors. The enemy may or may not be on the top floor, but the top floor would obviously be the goal for those who enter. Characters will be tasked with ascending to the top of the tower and defeating the enemy at the top. The only way to clear floors is to complete challenges from the enemy herself. Once the challenge is cleared, rewards are handed out and the new challenge opens up. Challenges and How They are Set Up
When a challenge is set, it will be released to the public via text message or call, depending on circumstances. All of the challenges are set up as so.
Floor Number: Which floor of the tower in which the challenge is located.
Challenge Briefing: A briefing of the challenge will be here, but will lack specific conditions, will be from the enemy herself.
Conditions: The actual conditions on clearing the floor.
Possible Candidates: This will be a list of people who may take on the challenge, it will be taken from a sign up sheet in the near future. It will also be used to avoid confusion.
Rewards: Obviously awesome things.
Challenges can be a variety of things, from PvE to PvP. Our little adversary will certainly keep things interesting.Rewards for Participating:
Obviously there will be pretty and shiny things that will come from doing this side quest. The main reward is experience, though. Those participating, either friend or foe, will gain experience for their respective Persona. This means that it is highly possible for any of the people involved can be guaranteed a fifth rank or close to one for their Persona, at least for Initial Users. Some may be lucky enough to gain a good bit of experience towards their sixth skill. This event can also make or break friendships, so expect Social Links to happen every once in a while. So it wouldn't be hard to say that one could even get a sixth skill if they work hard enough. It would basically make Persona Usage requirements easier to get to.
For Enemy Users, not only will their character's Awaken, but it is also possible that they will gain new skills. Once a Enemy User frees themselves from the enemy's control, they will be able to participate freely in the event.
There may be special items that would be available for those who participate as well, so experience isn't the only thing to look forward to in the event!
Look forward to more details soon!
