Clipping the Wings of Night

Who: Open to All
Where: INSIDE the city & the Mictlan
When: From the 9th until the early morning of the 16th.
Summary: A town meeting and temple pillaging
Warnings: Depends on the players!
Music: This one | Map: See the Temple Layout for each level

At Q's Request, Visitors gather near the remains of town hall. The half destroyed stone structure stands with three walls to serve as office, along with one undamaged desk. The situation is dire and serious.

Q is standing looking at a map along with the mayor, his assistant, Isabelle, and the Commissioner General of the Hinoto-Ri Police Force. When they see Visitors arriving, they silently nod, waiting for the time to address them all. There's not much to do, but the place is in shambles, and people are moving all around.

Members of the police and MAGI are slowly carting away pieces of the barrier that had fallen down. Perhaps it would be possible to grab a small, chipped part of it when they aren't looking? Or maybe Visitors can conduct a search in the debris nearby on their own accord...that seems less like stealing.



The Mictlan stands defiant against the reddish moon. The monsters around have become more bold, waiting to attack Visitors as they watch the city rise at night. Thankfully a few police officers have been tasked to aid them in collecting the Plumes of Dusk.

"Are you in teams yet," Q asks, as members of MAGI around him carry containers that will be used to collect the gathered items. Isabelle serves as the mayor's representative, and to count them as Visitors come back from their temple runs. Q is making sure everyone is his own way.

"Don't go in there alone like fools! Make sure you're working at least with someone else. We'll be keeping tabs up here for safety precautions. As soon as you're ready, let's get to work!"

[OOC: Mictlan exploration time yay!

Keep in mind these few things:
▶ Mods as well as our creature mod will be keeping an eye on this post for temple interaction. If you want to deliberately encounter a creature before the mods surprise you with one, simply title of your last tag [ENCOUNTER REQUESTED] so we know!
▶ The full info for the temple is here
▶ You can start threads in any level you want, but keep in mind of what was in the previous levels. Don't start a character in perfect health in Lvl 6 if they are just a newbie persona user and by themselves!
▶ Characters can gather plumes of dusk and whatever else they find around here until the 16th.
▶ If there's a special section that the document says you need to contact a mod, plurk [ profile] pixle so that we can get to you.
▶ We suggest going in numbers to increase chances of survival.
▶ Please have fun!]

Desco has a chunk of barrier in her claws as she floats over to where the mayor is.

"Chief Minion! Your queen requires a report on the state of her city!"
hinoto_ri: (Junko)

[personal profile] hinoto_ri 2014-06-11 01:19 pm (UTC)(link)
"C-chief Minion?!" The mayor looks at her in confusion, before Junko steps forward, pushing the glasses up her nose.

"Miss Desco, is that correct? I believe I asked Isabelle to mention to you not to address yourself as the Queen of the city. We elect government officials to hold office, this is not a sovereignty."

[personal profile] tyrantball 2014-06-11 09:31 pm (UTC)(link)
The eyes set in Desco's torso roll in their sockets to regard Junko, although Desco herself doesn't say anything, continuing to fix her crimson eyes on the mayor as she summons her Persona, Yog-Sothoth. The leering congerie of spheres titter and roil as Desco almost absent-mindedly casts Dunwich Horror on the secretary.

There is a sound like a whip-crack, and Minerva appears in a blink of an eye, adjusting her hat.

"I see it's more or less impossible for this city to go a month without a calamity. I've done what I can to protect this building -- well, the remains of this building -- but one witch's Protego will only go so far. Still, it should be safe enough to converse here."
hinoto_ri: (Mayor)

[personal profile] hinoto_ri 2014-06-11 01:21 pm (UTC)(link)
"Thank you for your invaluable aid," Junko replies before the mayor can say anything.

"Yes," he adds after her. "Thank you for protecting the lives of my citizens to the best of your abilities! I must admit, I am always impressed by the skills of the Seven...hopefully we'll find the others soon."

"As far as I've been told, there's nothing to be done about that until the sensors pick up on something." Minerva responds briskly. "Best to focus on this situation for the moment."

She'll turn to the Visitors now.

"Line up for a Shield Charm if you'd like. I'm afraid I can't say how long it will last in that edifice, but it certainly won't hurt."

Kotoha is picking through the scattered debris as she heads over to the mayor and Ms. Junko, carrying a small pouch in her hands.

"Excuse me? There was something I wanted to talk to you about before the meeting starts?"
hinoto_ri: (Junko)

[personal profile] hinoto_ri 2014-06-14 10:42 am (UTC)(link)
"Ms Lobelia," Junko responded in greeting, giving her a small bow. "How may we help you?"
unbroken_chain: (wonder)

[personal profile] unbroken_chain 2014-06-14 01:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Kotoha blinks a little, clearly surprised before shaking it off and muttering something under her breath.

"Different culture, girl, this is normal for them..."

With that, she opens the pouch and draws out a blue fruit the size of a tangerine.

"This is an Oran Berry, a type of fruit native to my homeworld. With the right kind of attention, a single plant can produce up to eleven berries per day for an entire month. It can be used to make juice, bread, and candy, and in non-food uses it can be made into an efficient fertilizer or medicinal powder."

Kotoha pauses to let that sink in.

"I've done some math, and if a greenhouse can be set up to produce these berries - using just my current stockpile - it could produce nearly eighty thousand of them in the first month alone."

Flynn had arrived earlier than the meeting time. He listened to the briefing without the barest hint of emotion, and does not ask any questions. The youth is dressed simply, carrying only a plain sword as a weapon - though his seemingly foolish choice of equipment might be masking a power impressive enough to not need visible armour.

He isn't alone, though. A blonde girl in a blue dress mills around him, poking around at the surroundings without any regard for her own safety. Flynn doesn't intervene, simply watching her from a distance.

She comes up to you with an angelic, innocent smile - though her voice sounds a little... off, as if her words are echoing a little.

"Hey there! Are you gonna be joining the expedition too? You should go with me and my big bro, otherwise he'll be lonely - and things won't be as fun!"

[ ooc: feel free to join Flynn's party. Once two or three people reply, I'll make an exploration post starting at the second floor of Mictlan. The first floor sounds straightforward enough, so we can skip it methinks. If you want to skip ahead to the third floor instead, we can arrange that!

Though it should be noted that Flynn is very powerful - his magic stat is double that of even the Ancient of Days (an aspect of God) whom he managed to defeat, so he packs insane firepower. This should help in defeating the bosses.

He'll be returning every night, so feel free to ping me at [ profile] eonflamewing if you want him to join your log! ]

Allelujah listened as well, Hallelujah not having too much to comment on. He was in his flight suit, helmet tucked under his arm for the moment. He blinked a little bit at the girl approaching him, though.

"... I am. Who's your big brother?"

Alice beams at him, turning and pointing towards the youth standing some distance away. He notices her and looks in their general direction, but doesn't say anything.

"This is my big brother Flynn! He takes care of me." She nods, emphasizing the statement. "But he doesn't talk a lot, so he gets boring sometimes."

He tilts his head, expression not changing. "Don't bother the gentleman."
egotrigger: ([alle] light love and laughter)

[personal profile] egotrigger 2014-06-12 08:42 am (UTC)(link)
"Ah." The person from before. He nods, and smiles a bit.

"I don't mind. It's all right." He holds out a hand to the girl for a handshake. "I'm Allelujah. What's your name?"

9th | Mictlan Exploration | OTA (poke on plurk first)

[personal profile] adnihilum 2014-06-12 03:52 pm (UTC)(link)
The Thirteenth Hour fell, and the first party of intrepid explorers descended into the depths of Mictlan.

It has been a while since they first made it into the entrance. Due to a combination of good teamwork, sheer firepower, and adaptability, the group has managed to arrive on the third floor without mishap.

Flynn led the way. It came rather naturally to him - plus, his status as one of the main damage-dishers meant that he could eliminate most incoming threats before they could harm the others. Alice wasn't accompanying him anymore. She had become a little tired after traversing two floors, and elected to rest. Instead, another demon is by his side - though it was strangely blindfolded with a white cloth.

The group descended down the stairs into a narrow corridor, which eventually opened up to reveal a huge chamber filled with roaring water. Flynn stopped just before the entrance, turning to address the group. It was impossible to hear his voice, but perhaps lip-reading could suffice.

"The chasm needs to be crossed."

Sraosha began to move ahead without any visible instruction from Flynn, floating down the bridge in a stately manner.

egotrigger: ([alle] huh?)

[personal profile] egotrigger 2014-06-12 10:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Allelujah was starting to feel a bit of the strain, but kept going. The monsters were starting to get a little bit more aggressive... it was a good thing he had switched out for a Support Persona. Fortunately with his CommLink, Allelujah could hear Flynn just fine, and responded in turn.

"We need to figure out how to do that. It looks like something broke it. I might be able to jump it, but it's hard to tell."
adnihilum: (Default)

[personal profile] adnihilum 2014-06-13 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
Flynn didn't move. His demon continued down the bridge, seemingly unperturbed by the roaring waterfall.

"Sraosha will scout it out for us."

The angel stopped at the tip of the bridge, then.. floated over the chasm and stopped at the start of the other bridge.

"Ahh yes, what a beautiful night for Michel to enter the temple and save the city single-handedly!"

Yes, someone was trying to act like an idiot again. At least he had a giant Pokemon behind him, looking like a mixture of boredom and annoyance.

"Hmmmm, with this new Persona, my Gyrados and Hades, there is no way that anything can stand in my way!"

Someone please stop him? Or join with him.

Takakage looked up from the book he had been reading. Or at least, he appeared to be reading - said tome was the green string-bound one that he always carried around. And the lighting here wasn't exactly good...

His voice is calm, but serious. "If you intend to venture in, I suggest a few of us come with you. There is safety in numbers, after all."

The strategist did harbour some curiosity about the prospect of entering, but caution was always first and foremost on his mind. There was no need for anymore casualties...

"I can join you, if you'd like."

"Hey!" A voice piped up from behind them. Here comes a little boy on a tinier horse. Also, he's armed to the teeth.

"You're heading inside? So am I!" Link said as he hopped off of Epona and gave her a pat on the neck.

Plumes of Dusk. Well, Kanji knew about those. He couldn't help but find the thought of going hunting for them somewhat worrying - but when it came down to it, when and where had the one at the core of his own mind been found?

So, here he was, checking to see who'd come out this time, hoping to lend some firepower and protection to those going in.
"Hey, you got plans? You got a group?"
adnihilum: (attentive)

hey hey

[personal profile] adnihilum 2014-06-14 02:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Flynn was checking his Gauntlet. This wasn't the first time he was venturing into Mictlan - while it had become a little repetitive, the task (and challenge that came with it) was cathartic, somehow. And if the Plumes of Dusk would power the teleporter, it would be of use to him.

After all, the knowledge of what was outside would be important.

He seems to only notice Kanji after a pause, though it is another full five seconds before he replies.

"I intend to venture in." Another pause. "Care to come along?"

"Wouldn't be askin' people if I wasn't gonna come," he replied with a shrug. "If you want me, I'm comin'. You done this trip before?" Experienced at these sort of trips he might be, but this was still new terrain.

She had been to the meeting, she knew the gameplay objectives for this quest. She had a pretty good idea of what she'd be doing, walking into this sort of dungeon. Nevertheless, the silhouette of the Mictlan- voidlike black against the crimson sky- loomed nothing short of forebodingly before her. It foreboding enough to intimidate.

Nanami hadn't yet figured out if there was a level reset function in this place, after all. And in such a format where a save option was missing and caution thus became so, so important, she'd be honest and admit that a new Visitor like her going in alone was a stupid idea.

To prove her point, the police officers around her raised yet another alarm as a demon was spotted in the vicinity of the makeshift administrative station. Batons were raised, flashlights waved frantically, and available Visitors quickly diverted themselves to dispose of the problem.

Standing at the outskirts of the crowd- almost close enough to take the first irrevocable step leading into the dungeon, but not quite- Nanami stood and stared, transfixed and hesitant. Exploration parties passed her, numbering at least in the threes and fours- she was severely short on manpower, then.

There were no familiar faces in the crowd.... maybe she should turn her attention instead to helping out with the log tallying or something....?
