Aight, so most of you on the discord already know, but I'm back.
Felt the Persona Kick come back over new years (having played P3 over that week after how many years?) and I just figured I'd check this place out again. (Was very tempted to hop in on a brand new account, all incognito and shit), but eh.
So what's happened? Well, I've done a lot of things since I stopped being super, duper active on here, and I genuinely miss those days. I just feel like rambling on and on. Could be an interesting read for those of you who weren't here back when I first joined (Which I assume would be the vast majority of you all).
So hi! I'm Jerry. I joined waaay back in like... what? 2014? I think? I was struggling with my mental health at the time, and found this rather innocent little persona roleplaying site. I was deeply into Persona at the time, and as such, I decided to give it a try. I temporarily left, as I had to move, and get my life sorted out. I came back around Sepember/October, once my Life Settled down, and the second plot of the site (Azores) had basically just started a month or two beforehand. Things were getting a bit heated on the story-front, and this was when I actually made a character I felt comfortable in (And I have YET to make one which I really feel as comfortable with as her), Mae Iharu. Magician and all that. Fire and Light based, for the most part. Time moves on and the story goes kinda crazy. But I was never really involved with the overall Azores Narrative until like... close to the very end. What made the New Arcana Experience so special to me at the time was... really, all the friendships I made. Both in the universe itself, and the people I played together with. I guess I look back at those times with rather rose-tinted glasses, because everything was far from perfect (and I'll admit, Mae was pretty much a cardboard cutout. Not all that interesting when I first made her). Why I like her so much, is mainly due to how she grew over the course of the story of Azores 1 and 2 (Latter of which is really non-canon, but I digress). She went from this kind of generic anime highschool girl, to being somewhat relatable, and I... kind of need that to Roleplay for longer periods of time. The Social Aspect of the Roleplay was really the most exciting part for me (aside from maybe the BIG story developments later on.)
Then came Ueitawa, and I got my first real taste of plot significance, despite being a low-level character, kind of shoe-horned in at the end. IDK, but the two GMs at the time (Grantus and Philemon) were excellent at making everyone in the story feel valued, to some extent. I genuinely miss the magic they both brought to the table, and I cannot deny it saddened me to learn that they both ventured on towards greater things. I myself, wanted to fill that void. But never succeeded to.
I'm not sure how Froger's handling the plot right now, but from what I've seen, it looks pretty good. I'm excited to hop back in, once I get my Alien Set up. Either way, I'm excited to be here again, and maybe, just maybe, this break did me some good.
I'll see you starside!
