Even though the Phantom had never told them the exact location of the Platinum Playhouse, their Personas would be drawn to the place. Almost like their otherselves were leading them, they'd surely find themselves standing before a broken down shop located in the back bowels of the Backlight District. The front door to the shop was barred by wooden planks that could easily be removed or destroyed. Whatever this place was, it appeared abandoned. However, that was far from the case. It was now inhabited by demons. Regardless, all that was left was for the cast to appear. And perhaps when they did, the Phantom would appear and give them the run down on what they could expect.

As the night grew deeper and deeper, a black-fire-clad canine figure would arrive at an eerie part of the Backlight, devoid of human presence. Whether non-humans were present, however, remained to be seen by the robot. Selenus came to the dusty and disrepaired shop guided by his Persona Fenrir, as if he knew precisely where the Phantom wanted to be met at. Perhaps on second thought, it might've been a good idea to come along with Nola and Tatsui instead of arriving early and waiting for them there. Either way, the robot wolf's instincts told him that he was definitely in the right place, and all that was left to do was wait for his comrades.
It would be a lie to say that Selenus didn't have second thoughts on the way there, but every time he doubted whether he truly wanted to stand under the brand of Terrorist, a quick reminder of his situation, his friends' situations, and his ultimate goal would bring back the determination he held when he initially set out for the Platinum Playhouse.
Standing in front of what he assumed to be the playhouse itself though... it filled him with dread and excitement at the same time. It was as if in front of his eyes lay the devil and the messiah at once. The nest of the terrorists: The source of all his problems, yet at the same time the solution to all of them. The only thing he knew for real was that inside of that forsaken-looking building awaited danger, and the kind of danger that he certainly would not be able to face alone.
"Alright, mister Phantom. Impress me." He would think to himself as he sat waiting.

Honestly, from the way Gabe saw it, Shotaro was pulling him towards some sort of area. He didn't know exactly why himself, or as to what the place truly was, but he felt as if his persona was guiding him to the place that the phantom was trying to lead them. Gabe actually found it quite ironic that the Persona's could figure it out on their own and know the location without them actually "knowing" "Well then...."
Gabe would say as he was already in his terrorist outfit, along with his mask of the sort.
Taking an eye of selenus, he tipped his hat to the robot weapon.
"Hello there Selenus, fancy meeting you here..."
Gabe would say in a calm and yet joking manner through his persona, not necessarily speaking on his own just yet for cautious reasons. Shotaro sounded like a different gentlemen altogether. "Just got here yourself? No sign of the phantom yet?

Xombie had been in the area the entire time during the night. Whether it was wandering around or shooting the shit with Aya, he knew leaving the Backlight district wasn't on the menu. When he noticed just how far off into the dark his Persona was leading him, he figured it'd be best to transform into his Terrorist gear instead of showing up in his regular attire. A hand came to his face, and a burning azure light created his mask. That same burning light ran down his attire and skin, altering his appearance to that of Xombie and not the previous Jack. After doing this, he would arrive on scene to see two familiar figures. For some reason he wanted to suck his teeth. Honestly he was hoping they would chicken out and go elsewhere. Guess his luck wasn't that great as of yet.
"So this is the place, huh? Heh, well let's go have some fun." The skull faced Rogue spoke to his Persona within his mind while walking pass the group and summoning his soulbound weapon to hand. A black rod alittle larger than his size would have appeared within his left hand in an azure light. Following its appearance, a sudden red spark of energy came from its furthermost point, and he would suddenly slash through the wooden barricade in one swipe. Once doing this, he'd walk through the entrance of the broken down place to see what the hell was going on inside. Unlike the others, he was on a time limit. Sooner or later his Persona would go berserk and devour the luck of all around him if he didn't find out how to properly control it. Hopefully the Phantom had an explanation on exactly what he needed to do. Though if he didn't, and Raffles went out of control, that would probably be pretty awesome aswell.
"And just like that, Xombie appears like a sandstorm at a Kindergarten picnic. I can't wait to see what this place is like!" His distorted voice could be heard from within the room after breaking through the first wooden barricade. However, he would sudden peek his head out and look towards the two. "I think this goes without saying.. Do not use your real names here. You don't know if this is a trap or not, ya know? So what are your code names? If you don't have one, I'll call you something myself. And I'm sure you wouldn't want that, kek."

Trinity had followed the advice and the directions of her persona's, taking winders alleys and the like, and as the place started to get darker and more secluded she changed into her mask, her body being covered in studded black leather belts, hiding every inch of flesh, even her eyes and mouth, then a white gossamer veil over her body hiding her just a bit more. She had heard of the place from Selenus, and then oddly her pawns seemed to know where it was now. It was quite interesting really, As she Walked down in her mask she looked about at the area, it seemed the place she was going was quite out of the way and hidden. Considering what it was meant to be though that made quite a great deal of sense that it was hidden.
As she turned a corner and continued down she heard voices and the sound of something smashing and so she continued, Finally coming to the place that her Persona's told her was the location she spotted Selenus sitting there in his mask as well as another person who looked oddly familiar but she didn't know why, Walking over though she simply gave a small wave as she figured saying Selenus' name wasn't a good Idea. Though then what should she call herself? She had spent some time thinking up a voice to use while like this and that had helped a bit, but what personality did this new her have?
Just then one of her pawns stepped out and gestured to the two present and the one leaving "Bow Before Sovereign and show your due respect and difference knaves" the pawn spoke to them as Trinity grew closer, and she found it odd one would do that. But at the same time, it did give her an Idea for the personality and the name to give this new version of herself. Tilting her head up a little she decided the best way to protect herself and her identity was to not act like her normal self, change her voice, and maybe even let her pawns act like this, though....she did wonder how long she COULD act like this.

There was no way Frog was coming there alone. Like seriously, he came there, saw how dark and creepy and smelly and disgusting the place he felt he had to go through to reach his destination was, and then just gave up, deciding to wait for Brit and Liam, sending them a text.
The powers from yesterday were burning up inside him, but, naturally, he wasn't feeling quite sure enough to transform into that outfit on his own there. Like, okay, fine, he was gonna do it before going into the Platinum whatever, but like this, on the street of the mall, waiting for Brit and Liam to arrive, na-hah, nope, he wasn't gonna dress up in that thing. I-it'd be too embarrassing. Instead, he opted to play dumb and walk around like a clueless idiot he was until his backup arrived. Because, you know, one does not earn the title of 'Frog's friend' that easily. And so he did that, spying on the way towards the Platinum whatever with his two prying eyes. Or well, four eyes, because he was wearing glasses.
Either way, regardless of whether they showed up... A loud crash could be heard all of a sudden after some weird dude walked into the place. Frog flinched and would, once again, with or without Brit and Liam, transform into his beautiful, shiny new form and, after a bit of hesitation, run in there, right after another person came the same way. Damn that person for coming in before him. (OOC: like, Brit, Liam, just write we met up or something or that we didn't meet up)
And when he arrived at the place, he saw four... well, three people and something. He'd give them all a glance through his bangs, then grin. They were all transformed already and one of the guys broke into the place. Speaking of, ew, the place was totally run-down. Even if they had chairs inside, he probably wouldn't sit on them. What that meant was... that he was perfectly fine as he was right there and his fancy get-up was getting to his head. He once again started feeling like he could do anything. With that sentiment came new bravado for the pathetic little Frog and he could smell on all of the other people there that they were not worthy of facing his powers. They'd just die, that was how weak they smelled.
The two seemed to be silent, while the third, dressed like some halloween cartoon ghost in a white veil was... well, doing whatever they were doing with what he presumed was their Persona thing talking something about knaves (pffft, rude and uninteresting as all hell), but the only one even worthy of attention was the one that broke in. Frog directed his attention at said guy. "Go ahead, call me whatever you want, it'd be fun to hear what someone like you can come up with anyways, hah-!" He grinned, raising his nose up high and resting his hands on his hips. "Anyways, since you already broke in, can you see anything? Not that I mind that you broke in, that Phantom guy needs someone to stick it up his ass." And this guy's stick would definitely serve the purpose. ___________________________________

Twelve had brought Takeru over here, attracted by something, and what he then did would change things forever.
"Hello. I'm.. well... call me twelve." Takeru said, clad in his 12th doctor costume. His sonic sunglasses covered his eyess, acting as a sort of mask of sorts.

Finally The time of day to uncover all the doubts left by last night's encounter. Liam felt like he couldn't contain himself anymore after the night has fallen upon Endymion, seemingly bothered by something he couldn't quite put his finger on it until he finally remembered about his other, or in his case a couple of dragons "other" self and let them go from his mental shackles to see if they were the case of this agitated spirit. Since then the dragons took turns to take the man through all the way until near the right spot where everyone was meeting each other, waiting to see if he could find Frog or Brit as they combined to enter together.
The red haired was too fashionably late though, as he saw Frog (And Brittany if she met Frog prior) entering just about the time he arrived there. Well, it was not that big of a problem anyways, he could just talk to them inside. First, the dragons comically attempted to enter the enclosed space, poking both their heads and shaking them a little to force an entrance, puffing away as soon as both had given up before the read-haired walked in, laughing under his breath of his own self just in time to hear Xombie's and Frog's words. He didn't recognize anyone right away, but skimming through everyone before approaching seemed useful as he found a lot of interesting people he had never seen before, or so he thought. The little pawn was adorable but quite petulant to be announcing someone like the Sovereign, which reminded himself of the Queen and that was not the best was to present itself on a room full of Psyche Terrorists, he thought. Nonetheless, Frog spoke as high as himself when in character so no complains there. Oh look! A Persona who could fit inside and looked like a dog! Was that a persona or something else, though? Liam hasn't seen anything like it until now save in games so he couldn't put his finger on it right away but, it was interesting nonetheless. Xombie was as flashy and strange as Frog, but in a more dark way. Was that a thing for Terrorists? Was he out of the loop? Anyways... The man in the top hat... Had they met before? He had this familiar feeling with him, and The green eyes kept staring at him for some time before looking away... No, It couldn't be Gabe, right? He would just adjust his mask to that, and move on to meet with the ones he knew the identities of for now before investigating further in that matter. ~ Hello there. ~ He said while back hugging Frog (and going around to hug Brit and kiss her on her cheek if she was there as well) as he has promised hug him in every occasion possible, and his already warm nature. ~ What should I call you, then? Prince of the frogs? Hopping Master? ~

Huh, so this is the place huh? I felt like I was drawn here. Guess it means our personae could auto-lock onto this place or something. It looks like a broken down shop, but that is probably just for appearances. Huh, looks like other people are already here. Guess it was a good move for me to already take on my masked form. There appears to be a flaming wolf... Selenus of course. A well-suited gentleman with one of those opera masks... Gabriel of course. .... Jack Valentine and his crazy antics. A lady with leather belts covering her entire body... Nola. Some guy who looks like a rainbow... frog? I don't know who he is. A guy who looks like some kind of doctor. Don't know who he is. And some guy who looks like some fantasy character. I also don't know who he is. It seems that we all have the power of persona and learned about the platinum playhouse. But are the other three trustworthy? I guess we will have to wait on that. "Just saying.... we should probably refer to our personae when talking to each other. Mine is Forseti, as some of you know. I believe that there are two groups of people here, so we should probably wait on giving names until we know we can trust each other." I say in my distorted voice that comes with my alternate appearance. Now, we wait to see if any more people show up. I just hope that they are sane, unlike two people here.....

"Well, he's The Frog Prince! Suits him fine, doesn't it?", with both hands on Frogerio's shoulder, Brittany's head sneaking right behind him, revealing her cheerful giggle upon the meeting. "Frog Prince" was hardly an adjective her friend would allow, but it served the young man very appropriately. To her somewhat naive eyes, he was like a Prince, and this perception would be enhanced by his new attire and overall appearance and behavior while under the Psyche Terrorist disguise, though she won't deny the change of personality could be comical if looked on from certain angles. As for Liam, she had come up with a nickname of her own to him..."Oh look, my friend Draconeeson, we appear to have company for the night!", she said, letting go of the tender snuggle they shared shortly after. One could say Brittany was quite exhilarate to see so many Psyche Terrorists together at the entrance of the shop, thrilled like a child in an amusement park. They probably reached the place just like her, following their intuition and letting itself drag them closer to their destination. It was odd, rationally speaking; they were never told about the exact location of said place, and it felt like raw intuition, but stronger and less simplistic than that. Anyway, this was her moment. Her outfit was on point: moments before, she had yelled "Persona Prism Power, Make Up!" and even tried to perform a fancy twirl, much to her own surprise when she actually noticed how much summon her Persona powers have worked to change her attire and make her feel like a TV series heroine. Well then, time to live up to her new role, then?

Bernard had followed Brit there in her "Terrorist Uniform". Appearing more so as an actual person instead of a friggin owl. As the owl walked in with her sort of human guise on, which you couldn't really distinguish if she wasn't a human inside of. Hmph.
The owl walked in with a rather serious expression on her disguise. Appearing as simply the equivalent of a human with a owl mask that was rather grim. Hm. Alright. I guess this is it. Let's be careful now...
She wasn't exactly a very social person, and this entire situation did not help it at all. The Owl's eyes had been focused on specifically Brittany and the area around them, being a rather careful hoo at the moment.
Hello...I guess we're stuck together then.
The owl would comment to Ryu and the odd frog guy, since she had been stuck with them before. Now it simply occurred a second time.

Boy did time fly by for her. So much happened in one night, that she simply couldn't wait for the next big thing to happen. Finding a quiet place before arriving, she would have transformed into her 'costume', which consisted of her hair turning a sickly green color, along with her mask emerging from her skin once more and covering her face. Her clothing began to burn away from effects of the Persona, leaving many holes which revealed parts of her body, which were decorated by bruises and marks as though she had just been tortured. It was to the point where clean skin could not be seen on her. She was pretty much unrecognizable, however one part of her remained. She reached up grabbing her hat, and tossed it in the trash. She could get a new one later while the clothes on her back meant little to her; that much was apparent by the marks and tears on them now from her power. She'd walk slowly to the source, her disguise covering her. She stayed some space from the group Familiar faces like the obvious robot dog were there, as well as strange faces. Dumb looking princesses, as they started prattling at each other. It really wasn't a smart idea to say their names yet when the smarter one of the gang pointed it out. The Phantom could be a liar for all they knew. Kyoukudou herself didn't particularly care either way in any case. She leaned her body back against a nearby wall, and didn't say anything to the group. She had nothing to say in general; Kyokudou needless to say was not the talking type. Part of her hoped it was just her, but rumors spread fast, and it wasn't surprising in the least. Maybe they would be useful in the end. Watching everyone suddenly start basically snuggling up with each other made her want to gag though. Did people who just met start kissing and hugging? Maybe they knew each other. If so, she was glad she was out of touch with society. All of the other guys save for the smart one may not have earned names, but they earned the same title for Kyoukudou: Annoying.

Everyone was showing up. More people than the Phantom was actually expecting, to be completely honest. The more the merrier at the end of the day. When the one named Xombie broke down the wooden barricade he'd find a bar like room. There would be a shelf pushed to the side, revealing a locked door. It was normally hidden but it seemed someone had been there and deliberately showed the door to the group who had appeared. There was one thing different about this door, and it was the fact it was in great condition compared to the rest of the bar.
Suddenly, there would be static and a voice could be heard. The source was a mic within the room, and the voice was loud enough for all to hear within the area. "So you guys finally showed up? And you brought friends? Haha, alright then that's cool! So, I invited you here, but if you want to get to me you're going to have to break in and make your way to me. If you do, I'll show you the truth about this city you all lived in blindly until today." The Phantom's voice came over the mic clearly, and its tone was a mixture of smug and amused. "There are three levers that need to be pulled within the entrance to reach the true heart of the Playhouse. It's up to you all to figure out how to get to them. But first, you're going to have to pick the lock to the door. Hopefully one of you have the skills to crack that lock with ease!" The Phantom snickered for a few seconds before speaking up again.
"Oh yeah, and to make sure you all work swimmingly, we're going to be having a number of squads. We're have multiple teams traveling together, with one main squad at a time that'll lead the way. To get you all used to one another, for the sake of teamwork, I'll be making the squads for you! Hehe..!"
- Alternating Cast:
"Team A, you're taking the floor first. Let me give you a rundown on picking those locks, so hold up a second!"
Lock Level :: 1 (If you're understanding is above level one, you may automatically pick this lock)
Any one of you on Team A can pick the lock and I will respond. Once the door is unlocked, you're free to enter the dungeon and begin to traverse. Until you hit a demon or a QAS space, I should not need to post (though I may to inform the team of an Alternating Session between casts).

Reiji walked inside the room after seeing Xombie go in. Probably the smarter idea in and of itself. It didn't take a genius however to look around the room and notice that door. As she walked in, she'd catch the voice of the Phantom that she had heard about before. So they had to prove themselves? She'd be pissed if it wasn't somewhat exciting. Not really that she was trying to please him, but moreso that she got to use her Persona after her first fight. She scratched at one of her bruises on her arms, discoloring it to a reddish hue. Three levers, and a locked door. How exciting. On top of that she was being forced into a team to work together? What a load. "Hm. Whatever. Just don't fall behind," she said, her voice coming out with a distortion to it. She walked with a slight slouch towards the door and knelt down to it, ready to try and give this lock a cracking.
