Also, as a point of clarification, during the breaks you are allowed to continue living in the dorms. I'm under the impression a few of you assumed it functioned like college in which you have to go home during the summer/winter breaks. Having re-examined my Persona 3 playthrough, you (along with the rest of the cast) are still living in the dorm during the month long breaks. So, if you want to reconsider your time during those breaks, just update me on it. That said, don't feel compelled to rewrite. You're allowed to live on campus at the dorms during the breaks, but you're not obligated to either.

Also, having read through everyone's stuff, I would really like to call in a last minute session this Sunday around the same time for us all to just talk out our character relationships. With the types of character's we have and with everyone having been at the school at least a year already, it's fairly difficult for everyone's character to not be at least somewhat familiar with each other. So, please let me know if you can make it. I'll probably do what I did last time and go around to each of you like a beggar asking you if you can make it.

I can't wait to hash out Hotaru and Akio's relationship, that's going to be hilarious

Man alive, I need to figure out how to turn my mic volume down. The entire recording is just "Listen to Inferno yell everything and also plead for mercy eventually."

LOL.

I feel like Nuva could just turn you down in Discord, maybe?

Reminder that the next test session is this coming Saturday. Hoping to start roughly the same time as we have been for the other sessions. However, seeing as I'm not pressed for time due to work, it should be a little less hectic.

Just a heads up that since a lot of the actual mechanics I'm looking into aren't exactly gonna be available immediately off the bat, this is gonna be a kinda dry session comparatively. I could do the canonically non-canon last time, but there's not necessarily a way to do that this time around. If I can think of a way to make it a little more interesting before then, I'll see what I can do.

Don't forget to get me a thing your character finds cool or represents their personality soon. This will end up affecting how I describe your persona and possibly even what Persona I pick for you, so think on it, but don't spend forever on it. I need it soon. Preferably before the 19th. Examples of what I'm talking about include:

Yosuke likes ninjas and superheroes. Therefore his Persona has elements of camouflage for modern ninjas and capes like superheroes wear.
Yukiko is there as a supporting character and backs up her friends. Her Persona looks like a cheerleader.
Chie loves martial arts. Her Persona looks like Bruce Lee.
Kanji likes things that look tough, like lightning. His Persona looks like a dude getting shocked.
Naoto likes detectives. Her Persona looks like a fictional boy detective.

By the way, I'm gonna use the "Next Game" thing on Roll20. So if you're ever curious when the next game is, if you check the Persona T page, it'll have the date and planned time.

Well, I had originally planned to start this on April 2nd, but realized last night that Inferno is working that day and can't really do a session at that time. So the first session is being put off a week until April 9th.

So, I've been putting in work to hammer out the final details and mechanics and such. Unfortunately, there is a high likelihood that Social Links will need to be retweaked IMMENSELY from the games. They function as a video game due to the one way avenue presented to the player. The player, specifically, is the one who interacts with the other characters at fixed times. The absurd amount of freedom I give you guys means the entire system shatters and I can't handle the extreme workload that would require completely revamping an entire system from the ground up to accommodate. It would push the game out by at least another month or two and I don't want to do that. So, expect a different system. The roleplay will still be there, but it'll just be tracked differently. This also ended up changing other systems I had planned, so this is gonna be the killer.

By comparison, all the Social Link characters AND the school teachers have been made. Their stories and personalities have not been made yet, but the characters and their names have been created.

I'm hammering out details for experience and gold. I have a rough idea of what I'm looking for in terms of experience, but gold is still under examination. This'll probably be cleared up by this weekend hopefully. Once that is out of the way, weapons will fall naturally into place. Items are gonna be worked out after. They will be there.

Map layouts hasn't been started yet. I have a rough idea of what I'm doing for April's dungeon, but I haven't fleshed it out yet.

The main overarching story is still WIP. It'll hopefully be cleaned up by next week at the latest. April's story is basically good to go.

As a random note, I changed the music on all 3 pages again. I'm not planning to do that forever though. I'm just doing it now as preparation for the official start of the campaign. I mostly did it tonight because I'm putting together the soundtrack.

And Part 1 of the Soundtrack is complete. I finished grabbing all the music for at school, after school, social links, exploring, at night, etc. Tomorrow is dungeon music night.

Oh right. I don't know if I intend to use this mechanic or not. But I want each of you to privately message me either here or on Discord three days of the week that your character is free to do things. Even with Clubs, your character is not necessarily required to attend, so don't worry about the club schedules. Sunday is a freebie day for everyone. Basically, I'm considering a mechanic in which I'm intentionally trying to create a schedule in which your characters aren't gonna dick around after school every day of the week. So yeah, do that.

Wanted to point out I want these absolutely no later than the 2nd. I'm on an extremely tight schedule right now as I'm entering the final stretch and, as always, the sooner I get them the better. If I don't have them by then, I'm rolling some dice and telling you what those days might be if I go through with implementation of the idea. Also related, that idea for the personality stats that I cut a long time ago might end up making a return as I try to find a way to prevent you guys from just clearing every social link inside of an in-game month or two.

Just remembered I need some other stuff from you guys. Besides the days I asked for. Which, again, this is pick 3 days between Monday-Saturday that your character is considered free on. Clubs are optional in the Persona universe, so don't worry about the schedule for those at the moment. I'll probably decide on them during the week though.

The other thing I need from you guys is a short blurb about what you guys will be doing before heading back to school. The plan is that when the first session starts, I'm gonna do a short intro sequence where I describe what each of your characters is doing. I'm specifically doing this for certain thematic reasons. You'll all be leaving wherever you are to come back to the school the night before the first day of classes. So, describe to me what they're doing the morning and afternoon of. Also describe to me what they might be doing on the train. Ideally, I would like a paragraph or two, but basics works too. Just don't give me like a full blown multi-page essay. I'll just end up trimming it.

Think about stuff like:
What are you packing?
Who are you talking to as you get ready to leave?
How enthusiastic is your character?
How does your character pass time on the train ride?
When you get in to Shin Yume-shi would you head straight to the dorm or linger about the city for a bit? (You'll be arriving in the late evening around 8-10pm)

Since Inferno asked, write this like a narrative. Don't just give me a list of that stuff. Write it out like you're telling me a short story about them getting ready. You can include dialogue and stuff if you want if that helps you piece it together, but just know that I'll only reference it, not actually read it.
