Hi! I am getting my application together for the mini opening. I have made sure to read all information provided, and compared different excisting characters from the group aswell. However, there is a few things that I can't seem to quite grasp. I'm sorry for the inconvinience, but if anyone had time to answer that it would be very helpful.

1) Only one person can claim one persona - Is that correct or not? Because somewhere I am pretty sure that someone stated that only one person may claim one persona, which makes sense. However, in this thread, I read that obviously the same persona can be claimed many times?

2) Does the choice of Suit actually affect in any different way than the options of personas you get? I think that the suit also affected combat, but that makes me even more confused. I can't really get the pieces together considering this.

3) The attacks or skills that people have chosen for their personas, are these made up or actually written down somewhere?

4) Aaand, last one. The character and persona always share the same Arcana, right?

Sorry for the trouble! But this group seems so great and I want to make my best~ I should have started earlier if I could, but I found this group yesterday, so I'll fight haha~ ^^

1) that first thing means that you can only have one persona per character, not that only one persona can be claimed by one character =v= it's just the restriction on numbers

2) It reflects on the fighting style, yes. Chalices are focused on healing, swords on physically fighting, wands on magical fighting and pentacles are focused on support magic and the like.

3) They are written down. Please check the persona compendium.

4) No, you can choose any persona from the arcanas that belong to your own suit.

Well, I was not very clever with one of my questions. Please ignore the third of my question (Regarding Skills) - I totally seemed to miss that they were in this very journal. ^^;

Are "All Suits" skills included under the four compulsory "Specific Suit" skills?

For example if as a Wands, I picked Agi, Bufu and Zio for my first three Wands move, is "Counter" considered as a Wands move (because it's All Suits) by the Skill Priority rule, or do I have to pick a specifically Wands move?

I know the enrollments are closed now, but I wonder, how do we choose our OC's arcana, I'm assuming it can be anything, and not like... personality based or anything, am I correct? (I hope this question is clear enough O_O)

you can choose anything, but the arcana has to do something with your oc 'v'

It would be based on the Suit you choose, and the personality.

Ah... actually, let me correct myself.

When you choose an Arcana for your character, it is tied to the Suit.
The Arcana must also be present in the personality, or it can also be shown in the backstory, whichever works.
As long as the character development is related to the Arcana, yes.

A friend helped me find a Persona called Furtuna... they said Furtuna was the only one with Wind (my natural element is wind so I tend to use that for my characters.)

They screened capped me that info and image. I believe I read that I could modify the persona as log as they still fit their job. Is that true?

rieule Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Uuuh design-wise, it's true. But we don't really work with wind/element specifics here, you can choose every attack as long as it fits in the rank (and suit from r5 up) Other than that uh... yeah just make sure fortuna is in the list and everything and it should be fine ovo

well, you'll have to wait until rank 3 to be able to use fortuna actually. To be able to do that, you must choose one from fortune arcana as your starting persona, too.

Ahhh I understand.
We have a list for the Rank 1 Persona for those who don't know, but the best website to check on those stuff would be Megami Tensei Wiki <3

[link]

Just type in the name of the Persona in the search box, you should be fine then.

... Yeah... idk why but wiki links do not work for me on this
computer. The only ones I've gotten to work are Zelda and
Mortal Kombat wikis... Do you have a list on a tumblr?
Or even a facebook list?

I mean if you doubt my issue with wikis I can screen cap
and should you the link.

lacelazier Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
It's not that I'm doubting, but maybe you can try Google Images as well. If not, there are also Gamefaqs which may contain the descriptions of the Persona itself. You can try Persona 3 and Persona 4. If it's not there, it may be in Persona or Person 2: Innocent Sin.

I tried google but It didn't know what I meant
by Persona list or Morphos metaphor persona list
That is why I came here and asked if you had a list of them.

Rank 1 Persona = [link]

If you chose an Arcana, find a Persona under it.

Then, the Persona you choose you use the search for Megami Tensei Wiki.

Say... Hel, under Death.

We don't have our own Persona list we gathered the Persona from the games.

Also I can modify the uniform as long as its tasteful and done to still hide any cleavage right?

lacelazier Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013
Actually that's Fortuna.
Modify the Persona but keep to their essence, yes.
The uniform doesn't show cleavage at all. Please read the rules regarding uniforms.

unfortunately not ovo as a persona is a faucet of the true self, there's really no reason because it'd correspondent to the original!

1) No Judgement Arcana

2) One persona.

3) Split personality disorder. If you'll use that we'll be expecting a lot of effort in terms of balancing personality and character development from your Application~

Is it intended for the Hermit Arcana's Rank 3 Persona to be the same as the Rank 1 ones? ; w;'

This: [link] (Rank 1)
And this: [link] (Hermit Arcana, Rank 3)

They have the same personas; though the third and fourth have different stats. I was just wondering, because I think the Personas of other Arcanas change completely...no?
