Who: Nanami, Open Invitation
Where: Streets of Hinoto-Ri, 13th Hour
Summary: If wandering around until you found a party worked for MMORPGs, why shouldn't it work here?
Warnings: nil

The sky was red. Nanami Chiaki was, once again, ignoring common sense and wandering around.

Then again, many players did that, didn't they.

Battles were supposedly best done in pairs here- thanks to that, it was apparently a thing for some people to make appointments on the Network. Nanami had browsed the Network messages, gotten an idea of which locations would be rife with demonhunters tonight- and in retrospect she should've made a comment, maybe, but it felt...... ...... ..... it felt awkward to say anything when everyone seemed to know everyone else. Yeah. Nanami was not good with networking. (A pity this site was called the Network. Eyyerugh, her kyrptonite!! Haha.)

The plan was to one- find a fellow hunter to tag-team with, and two- a quest aptly described by miming a gun with your hands and going pew pew pew. Or even better, ratatatatatatata like a machine gun, and cue evil laughter. Her Evoker was in her hand and she absently experimented with flipping it about once in a while as she strolled. There were growls and indescribably grotesque animal noises- but there were also large buildings with their anti-demon barriers, that Nanami made it a point to landmark in her mind in case she ever encountered something she didn't feel like fighting. 

In many cases it took less effort outsprinting your average Rattata-class mook than actually engaging them. Quest One had to be cleared before progress could be counted for the next. 

Now, time to go player-hunting!

Sorry, no players here, just some kind of small purple demon-creature surfing through the air on a wave of purple sludge studded with screaming faces.

Desco is entirely too fond of The Smooze's Pass Through spell, you see.

Desco's eyes give her something fairly close to 360 degree vision, so it's not that hard for her to spot someone following her on a spaceship. The Smooze corners like a pregnant whale, so rather than reverse course she just takes a wide turn through a nearby building, looping around to pull up near Nanami.

"Hello, new subject! Queen Desco appreciates the old-school, retro charm of your Persona!"

Nod nod.

"Desco likes the aesthetic very much! That is why she took it from the Velvet Room."


"She kept it because flying through walls is really cool."
tyrantball: (FINAL BOSS POWER)

"Desco is the one that flies! The Smooze just lets her fly through walls!"
tyrantball: (MWAHAHAHAHA)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-09 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, not everyone can be as amazing as Desco, after all!"
tyrantball: (GRAR)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-10 02:10 pm (UTC)(link)
"Hunting! Desco is beating up unlicensed demons!"


"Now, new subject, you will be helping your Queen!"
tyrantball: (GRAR)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-11 10:34 am (UTC)(link)
"Then follow Desco, subject!"

And off she goes to pick a fight with weird grey fairy things.

"Desco and Retro Girl will beat you all up!"

Ooo, right in the weakness! Desco's limiting herself today - she's got out Kogasa, her creepy combat umbrella, so she just pulps one of the Zombie Fairies with a simple swipe, shaking the remains off nonchalantly as she observes Nanami fight.
tyrantball: (MWAHAHAHAHA)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-13 09:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Desco grins a little at the boosting spell and rotates to the left, her two primary tentacles snapping their jaws.

tyrantball: (GRAR)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-15 11:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Desco floats merrily over to where Nanami is, idly cratering one of the Zombie Fairies that gets too close to her with a swipe of Kogasa.

"That was fun!"
tyrantball: (MWAHAHAHAHA)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-16 05:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Desco puffs up at this.

"Hmhmhmhmm! More, more! Praise Desco more!"
tyrantball: (MWAHAHAHAHA)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-18 06:11 pm (UTC)(link)

"Hmhmhmhmm! Final Boss Arises is the first of Desco's three Killer Moves! They are proof of her status as the Legendary Final Boss, Queen of Evil Deeds, the Adorable Endbringer! Truly, you have good taste!"

Her tail, which has retracted down into a little stub, is a blur behind her as it wags furiously.
tyrantball: (GRAR)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-20 06:06 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes! Desco defeated Bio-Suits and Ranger-type enemies and the Justice Valkyries and her little sister, Earth's Guardian God! That is why Desco is queen of everything ever!"
tyrantball: (Bzuh)

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-23 07:13 pm (UTC)(link)
A slight pause as Desco considers Nanami.

"'re kind of bad at talking, huh?"

There's a woman standing in a doorway, looking rather cross. As far as MMORPG characters, she probably would be the taciturn hard hitter, but she certainly looks the part - dressed in her normal severe outfit with her whip prominently at her side.

Demon hunting... was rather tedious. Which is why she's waiting in a rather dark part of the town, waiting for the demons to come near her rather than her chasing them.

She may be open to conversation, maybe. But with the way she's leaning against the wall, you might as well expect a marker over her head.

"Hm?" Franziska's voice is non-committal, but this person seems harmless.

That doesn't mean she's going to be nice to them, it just means that she won't get out the whip to use on them on the first go.

"What is it? If you're here to demon hunt, then be on your way. I'm waiting here for them to pass by."

"When your Persona is low levelled... and you are not someone who actively engages in such acts." Franziska began, slowly. "You do not pick any fight. For there is no "training area" or "progression" here, only beasts which roam of every strength and shape!"

She grips her whip a little tighter, gesturing to the figure of something large in the distance, that lurched away a few seconds later.

"I wish not to die in this forsaken place."

"Tell me who you are first," began Franziska as she gave Nanami a look over. She looked dependable enough, and the way she talked about Personas meant that she was genuine, as rare as that was in Franziska's world view. She reminded Franziska of Maya in a strange way, in her openness and eagerness.

She just wondered whether there was any Character Quirks (TM) that she'd have to deal with.

In reality, not much. Franziska was more curious to see how this person would respond - what a person is willing or unwilling to volunteer about themselves says a lot about of them as a person.

"My name is Franziska von Karma. Very well, do you have a weapon?"
