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.

Adamaï | Sagittarius District | March 5th, evening

He'd been knocked out to the ambient sounds of clockwork, and woke up to the same - he could smell that same alien, underlying edge to the air that signified a horde of moving metal. Adamaï wobbles into wakefulness, barely realizing that he'd been on his feet, plodding forward in a zonked out sleepwalk. He stops, comically huge hat bobbing at knee-height to a normal person as he looks around with wide eyes. This doesn't look like the inside of the clock. He doesn't sense Yugo. This has to be a different world. He was going to just dismiss the dream as distant premonition, something he could think about later, maybe - but suddenly it feels a lot more urgent!

"Eh - whah - why right now?!"
halberdaxe: kaomuffin @ lj (Default)

i'm sorry

After discovering about his Persona a couple days ago, Noda has been looking forward to the 13th hour. He was always a hotheaded guy, and fighting had been something he was better at doing at than talking.

And enjoyed too.

As he went around killing the monsters that appeared during the hour, he almost slammed his halberd axe down on the little....thing. Instead of apologizing, he looked at Adamaï with a raised brow.

"What in the world are you supposed to be?"
verbaltique: ("human": Come fight me you nazi.)

i'm not ouo

[personal profile] verbaltique 2013-03-08 07:02 am (UTC)(link)
The mysterious-whatever-he-is that Noda nearly axed makes a wordless sound of distress as he backpedals away from the hit, getting away with just a nick to his giant (wooden?) hat. Wow, guy, rude. Adamaï puffs up his chest as much as his small frame will allow.

"I'm a dragon, that's what! So watch it where you're swinging that next time, okay?!"
halberdaxe: kaomuffin @ lj (Default)

oh man

[personal profile] halberdaxe 2013-03-08 07:09 am (UTC)(link)
A dragon? Did that mean this little guy was a... Monster?

"You're saying you're a monster?" He drew out his weapon again, pointing the blade at the other. A smile spread across Noda's face.
verbaltique: ("human": Eesh.)

this is going to be "well that escelated quickly" the thread isn't it

[personal profile] verbaltique 2013-03-08 07:35 am (UTC)(link)
"What? That's not what I said at all!"

Adamaï's bravado recedes visibly, as that axe is pointed back over his way. Grougal had lectured him that there were people who fancied themselves dragonslayers, sure, but - to be looking at the metal of someone's weapon, glinting in the strange light that had been cast over the city, while he called you a monster... it was a lot different than just shrugging off the idea so that the conversation could go somewhere else.

"Get your ears checked. Dragon, not monster!"
halberdaxe: kaomuffin @ lj (Default)

everything gets escalated quickly with noda

[personal profile] halberdaxe 2013-03-08 07:55 am (UTC)(link)
"Dragons are one type of monster!" As far as he was concerned, in the world of RPGs dragons fell into the same category.

Talk about living in different worlds.

"So are you not going to attack? All the other monsters during this hour seem to be more violent than you."
verbaltique: ("human": oh you're in for it now bub)

[personal profile] verbaltique 2013-03-08 08:31 am (UTC)(link)
This is why he's glad his series is a loving homage to like fifty types of games, rather than just RPGs!

If that's how he's going to play it - Adamaï makes a noise that's in the rough neighborhood of a growl, but not quite the intimidating ideal you'd expect from a dragon. "If you say hello to everyone with an axe to the head, I know why they'd want to hit you back! This is the last warning I'm giving out!"
halberdaxe: kaomuffin @ lj (Default)

[personal profile] halberdaxe 2013-03-08 08:57 am (UTC)(link)
And with a smirk, Noda advances towards Adamaï, raising his halberd up and ready to attack.

"I don't need any warnings, come at me!" Spoilers, even with warnings he dies easily.
trollsdragons: (Oh! How peculiar.)

Today is the day for Purpled-Haired Jerks, it seems.

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-08 10:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Hmm. A humanoid, yet awkward appearance - those feet are certainly a pretty good giveaway that this isn't a normal child. Granted, a lot of things in this world aren't 'normal', but if he's right, then this will be pretty interesting.

Xellos makes himself seen, and looks rather intrigued by the wee dragon. "You seem lost!" It's said more as a statement, an observation - no obvious intent to help in the tone.
verbaltique: ("human": (unsures) into the sunset)

[personal profile] verbaltique 2013-03-09 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
Ad's not the best in the world at reading tone he grew up on an island in the middle of nowhere talking to rock monsters what do you expect, so he misses the implied indifference and simply seizes the opportunity his sudden appearance offers. "I am!" He blinks up at Xellos, vision partially obscured by the brim of his hat - he's simply taking his appearance in rather than looking any kind of perturbed. Guy looks pretty normal by the standards of the World of Twelve, after all. "Do you know the way to somewhere a little less, um," Adamaï waves his hand at the mechanized vicinity. "mechanic?"
trollsdragons: (/fingerwag)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-10 10:06 pm (UTC)(link)
"I do! Really, if you start off in most any direction, you'll eventually reach a different area!" Vague advice, and not exactly helpful, but true. Xellos smirks a bit, and gestures similarly with his staff. "Not fond of metal, I take it?"
