Time for backstory!May 3rd, 2015
Three years have passed since the Midnight Channel Incident. With a few exceptions, those years have been quiet, both in the human realm, and the realm forged by human thought.
But that grace period has come to an abrupt end.
The TV World has been invaded by seven foreign Shadows, disrupting the flow of time in the world. Claiming to be the Masters of All Shadows, they act as gurus recruiting other Shadows to a cult of destruction and invasion. Every hour, they open the realm between mind and matter, allowing their armies to seep through. Every other hour, they become immobile, allowing their acolytes to wreak havoc and recruit others.
But their invasion has not become public knowledge, at least not yet. Besides a few random disappearances which are almost immediately resolved, not much seems to have changed. However, for a select few, there is a change in the atmosphere, a sense that something is wrong.
Who are these Masters of All Shadows? On what authority to they claim this title? Whoever they are, their influence is gradually being felt, and they feel that no one can stop them...Rules:
~Just because you perform an action, do not assume that the expected result is carried out. Your opponent deserves a chance to respond.
~Every page (40 posts) represents an hour passing in the TV World. It is currently the Active Hour. Here is the difference between hours:
Personas can be summoned in the Human World
Shadows can enter the Human World
The seven Masters of All Shadows are active
Personas that are summoned in the Human World are immediately recalled, and cannot be summoned.
No Shadows can enter or leave the Human World.
Shadows in the Real World do not have their normal resistances. Anything can hurt them.
The seven Masters of All Shadows turn to stone, and cannot be attacked easily.
~Persona Combat reflects Anime logic: Your Persona can remain out as long as you will it, and can take damage which the wielder feels. If too much damage is sustained, the Persona is forced back into your subconscious, and cannot be freed again until the wielder recovers. Do not try to circumvent the system by claiming a high threshold of pain: Everyone has a limit.
~If there are any questions or concerns, voice them either via PM, or in the Velvet Room (Signup and OOC Thread). Otherwise, use double parenthesis (( )).
~If you're going to be inactive for a time (more than a week), notify the other players so that we may plan accordingly. It's rude to disappear without warning.
~Have fun (this goes without saying)!
Now, if there are no other questions, let's get this show on the road!
