Something Old, Something New

▼ Something Old, Something New (13th hour & arrival log)
 
Who: Anyone
Where: The entire city
When: The news two weeks
Summary: This is both a Newcomer log AND a General 13th hour log
Warnings: That depends who is there

▼ When it is darkest, men see the stars...(13th hour)
 
The night sky once again turned red as the 13th hour hit the city. By now it was almost too easy to accept it. The moon (or what was of it up there) shone, affecting the monster population in subtle ways.

By now, even the strange events which had happened almost seemed a little too common. The pulls from a new building, or the odd creatures that showed up and increased the population for that hour gave rise to new oppertunities; both good and bad.

To keep the population safe, the mayor had asked the city to stay inside that night and let the city police and visitors do their job, despite the dividing population on this issue. For the most part, there wouldn't be much resistance.

Each night, the sky was always filled with at least one or two signs of something new, and people were ushered inside buildings as much as possible.

Who knew. Maybe tonight you'd get lucky.

▼ Ode of the Newcomer
 
You're not in your homeworld anymore. That much is evident. So how do you feel? Happy? Sad? Troubled? A little of all three? No matter what, the memories of a butterfly man named Philemon are fading like a dream; you'll remember the details, but perhaps not everything he has said. What time you showed here seems to be as random as everything else; if you were lucky it was during the day, if not, well the 13th hour was rather dangerous. Fortunately, there was a high chance you'd be spotted quickly.

...hopefull anyway.

There is one word that stays with you, however.

Persona.

So...here to save the city, huh? First you'll need to find out more information. And who knows, maybe a familiar face or two...

▼ Extra Long OOC Blurb
 
[(Make sure you read it!) This is a dual log, both 13th hour, or newcomer posts (we're testing it out to see this works well or not.)

This will be up to you on what you want to do; start a new post where you can character's name and OPEN and write the days they'll be wandering during the 13th hour.

If you are a newcomer, write OPEN and what hour they arrived. It can be the 13th hour if you want too!

Join other people's post, do some exploration, post them fighting monsters and just have some fun leveling up / interacting! For this log, you can level up persona, but not in the same thread and the same day, IC-wise. Please do not abuse this. The conditions is that the fighting must happen on different days. The threads should be long enough that an attack is possible and shouldn't just be a few comments just for the sake of leveling up (Ie, we want effort in them, as much as you would with a normal log.).

If you submitted a building and it was accepted, feel free to start a post with them discovering it! The original owners who submitted will be the first to see them, due to a strange pull that made they feel like they NEEDED to go to that area. What they do with this information is up to them; they can contact others in their group, start exploring by themselves or allow the thread to be open for others to come in with them...it's all up to you. That next morning, the government will be coming over to analyze them (that will be done offscreen, however).

FOR THE CREATURES 1) The creatures have to be in the Beastary for you to use them. You don't need to use creatures from your own home worlds either, as long as someone's put in a creature in there! Also, make sure your characters could logically take on the creatures you pick let's not have them take down a giant creature when they couldn't normally.]


DON'T FORGET TO TAG WITH YOUR CHARACTER'S NAME PLEASE.

Leo Ward, Monday 3/4 - Open

Meetra, in her nighttime wanderings of the city, had stumbled across a group of ghoul-like things that looked hideous and aggressive enough for her to want to practice on. Thus, she summons up the strange Persona she'd retrieved from the Velvet Room, Kabuso, to try setting one on fire, lightsaber in hand as a backup.

It clearly did some damage, but unfortunately alerted a whole group of the things. Meetra found herself paralyzed by a series of shrieks. Fortunately, she hadn't closed to melee range, but there were an awful lot of those things traveling toward her now that she was stunned...

[personal profile] meaningdies 2013-03-04 08:51 pm (UTC)(link)
A burst of light dispelled one of them, Naoya standing behind Cleopatra. A few of the ReDeads turned, and Naoya crossed his arms, sending his Persona at them with a Poison Skewer.
echo_of_a_jedi: (Jedi Master)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-05 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
After a couple of seconds for the stun to wear off, Meetra shakes her head and faces the ones that were still shambling toward her. In one quick motion, her lightsaber ignites and slashes out, ripping a chunk out of the nearest one and knocking it back several paces.

"Thanks! Didn't realize all of them were going to do that..."
meaningdies: (you who would seek power)

[personal profile] meaningdies 2013-03-05 04:46 pm (UTC)(link)
"It's not a problem."

He switches to Coyote, and tilts his head, as if he's listening to something.

"There's another enemy to the east of us, but that's it in the immediate area."
echo_of_a_jedi: (atton stop crashing the ship)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-06 03:34 pm (UTC)(link)
"Is it some kind of ghoul like these, or something different?" she asked, making sure the ones she'd bothered weren't going to start moving again.
meaningdies: (you who would seek power)

[personal profile] meaningdies 2013-03-07 03:18 am (UTC)(link)
"It seems different. Not as quick, but it feels... birdlike? But also human. I'm not sure. It's heading this way, though."

He's fairly confident between the two of them - or even on his own - it can be taken down, but being caught by surprise would be annoying.
echo_of_a_jedi: (atton stop crashing the ship)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-14 05:46 am (UTC)(link)
She nods, and follows his directions toward it. A few moments later, she spots it, staying behind cover for now this time.

"Somehow, it looks even deader than the last ones."

gegege_no_ge: (What's that?)

[personal profile] gegege_no_ge 2013-03-05 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
"Damn it!"

He hadn't really WANTED to intervene. She'd started it. But now they were ganging up on her, and he wasn't so bitter at this point that he didn't know a good time to step in. Anyway, he's not even sure what these youkai are, aside from troublesome.

Which is why you suddenly have a kid jumping from... somewhere, with a striped vest over his head, kicking his geta sandals at a far faster speed than they ought to be kicked off at towards the creatures. Needless to say, they don't weather it well.
echo_of_a_jedi: (way too much moral ambiguity here)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-05 03:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Meetra recovered from the stun effect reasonably quickly, but remained there transfixed for a moment by this guy's...fighting style.

She did, however, remember to hit one of the closer ones with Kabuso's Garu spell. Her concentration wasn't broken that easily.

"Nice shoes."
gegege_no_ge: (Not cool)

[personal profile] gegege_no_ge 2013-03-05 06:46 pm (UTC)(link)
He looks a little annoyed as the shoes fly back to him, returning to his feet as he casually two-steps. "Strange creatures. They resemble ghouls, but I don't recognize them otherwise. Father, do you know anything about this?"

Something shifts through the hair, and... oh God, is that an EYEBALL popping out? And... it's talking. In a teeny, squeaky voice. "Can't say I have! I've been hearing that new youkai have started appearing since all these otherworld arrivals, though! Hmm, I'll have to start taking notes on this!"

The boy looks back at Meetra. "Be honest. Why did you pick a fight with them?"
echo_of_a_jedi: (way too much moral ambiguity here)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-06 03:33 pm (UTC)(link)
She thinks about this carefully while pointedly ignoring the fact that an eyeball had just popped out of this kid's face and spoken. Who was she to question the life cycles of other species, anyway? Plus, she could ask later.

They had simply been standing there. She had assumed they were lying in wait, but why had she?

"Similar monsters tried to attack humans at random in the place where I was trapped for the last month," she explained, as one would to a teacher or instructor. She'd spent enough time justifying herself to her last master she didn't feel strange doing it to someone more sincere.

"Also, demons that appeared here after the first few waves of Visitors are almost universally hostile, and I didn't feel a living presence from them through the Force. I came to the conclusion these probably were the same...but I didn't have definitive evidence," she concluded.

"I should have checked to see if they'd communicate first," she admitted, "even if it was a small chance."
gegege_no_ge: (Ba-pssh)

[personal profile] gegege_no_ge 2013-03-07 04:25 am (UTC)(link)
"That's right. You should have." Kitaro crosses his arms. "Far too many youkai have nearly gone extinct because humans acted carelessly. You should be more careful." He harumphs. "Besides, this is clearly OUR time. Get your own."

The eyeball sighs. "Do forgive Kitaro. He's been pretty irritable since everything happened. He used to be such a nice boy, too..."

"I'm still a nice boy! I'm just selectively nice."
echo_of_a_jedi: (atton stop crashing the ship)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-10 03:29 pm (UTC)(link)
She folds her arms up and bows toward the pair. "Your...son is entirely correct, sir. I apologize for shooting first and asking questions later."

She looks down at the remains of the ReDead and grimaces. "You don't really think they were intelligent, do you? They look...dead."

trollsdragons: (I guess you -are- useless!)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-05 10:44 am (UTC)(link)
As if from nowhere, a man dressed as a priest steps up with an amused look on his face - he moves to stand beside Meetra, and lets out an awestruck noise at the swarm of Redead on their way.

"Oh my! Looks like you've put yourself in a tight spot, Miss!"
echo_of_a_jedi: (everyone on this ship is an asshole)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-05 03:20 pm (UTC)(link)
She remains frozen for a few seconds, but does manage to mutter while she tries to get her lightsaber ignited that "If you're that calm about it, you could help, you know."
trollsdragons: (Ahahaha~!)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-08 10:18 pm (UTC)(link)
At that, Xellos shrugs, stepping back from her once she's able to move again. "I could, but why do that when you've got everything under control, hmm?"
echo_of_a_jedi: (atton stop crashing the ship)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-10 03:35 pm (UTC)(link)
She does, in fact, manage to get her lightsaber ignited, which performs extremely well in knocking down, dismembering, and warding off the zombies.

It was also probably a good thing he stepped back.

"You're more of the observer type than the actually helpful type, I'm guessing."
trollsdragons: (Neutral)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-10 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
"An astute deduction, Miss! After all, a priest's place is not on the field of battle," he answers, all smiles and decency. Underneath that, though, is curiosity - why can't he sense any kind of emotion from this woman?
echo_of_a_jedi: (everyone on this ship is an asshole)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-14 05:54 am (UTC)(link)
"Depends on the religion," she says simply, looking over what was left of the ghouls. Nothing useful. In turn, the Force wasn't telling her much about this person's intentions either, although common sense and years of experience told her not to trust a smile like that.

"Do you need help getting somewhere safe? There's a lot more monsters around, especially if you're not a fighter."

[Tachikoma comes upon Meetra from the other direction the ReDeads approach from. She comes over, happy to see a friend and say hello.]

Hello Miss Surik! Are you making new friends?

[Tachikoma's still relatively new to this whole "13th Hour" thing. She hasn't figured out that either of them might actually be in trouble...]
echo_of_a_jedi: (WHY IS THIS GAME SO SAD??)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-14 05:56 am (UTC)(link)
"Not at the moment," she said, slightly worried. "Can you fight? In this shape, I mean."
genkibot: http://azarath.deviantart.com/ (O O)

[personal profile] genkibot 2013-03-14 06:40 am (UTC)(link)
Fight? How come? Are these some of those demons that come out at night?!

Um, Zero explained he's a support type, so he doesn't really have a lot of attacks, but I brought one of the handguns from my room just in case. Would that work?
echo_of_a_jedi: (everyone on this ship is an asshole)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-16 05:59 am (UTC)(link)
"They usually do," she observes, "and yes, they're definitely demons, and they come out during this part of the night. I don't think they're the kind that want to stand and chat, either."
genkibot: http://azarath.deviantart.com/ (gununu)

[personal profile] genkibot 2013-03-18 07:44 am (UTC)(link)
Okay, um, I'll give it a shot, I'm more use to shooting things as a tank, but I've seen my other team members use them before, so hopefully that will help!

[Tachikoma takes out a rather dangerous looking handgun, checks the safety and starts firing. Her aim isn't too good, but considering this is her first time shooting a firearm, she does well at keeping the monsters from getting closer.]

Wow, this is harder than it looks without targeting programs!!
echo_of_a_jedi: (way too much moral ambiguity here)

[personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi 2013-03-18 02:44 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yeah...practice makes perfect," Meetra said, a little nervously. That was a powerful slugthrower in the hands of someone with not a lot of training.

"Give me cover and I'll try to finish this group off, if you're familiar with that tactic?"

Hey, if she used to be a tank droid, presumably she knows more about tactics than she does small arms.
