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.

Zuko, Weds the 6th, Virgo

Zuko is in the Virgo ward, because his apartment doesn't have any food, and this seems the place to get it.

It's just...

Zuko's world is quite different from Hinoto-Ri. So he's a little awe-struck by what he's seeing. Forgive him if he bumps in to you.
islandshore: (what is this I don't even--)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-10 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, when Zuko bumps into Riku, he'll stop and press one hand into his hip, cocking his head to the side.]

For future reference, you might wanna look where you're going.

[His tone isn't particularly hostile, though. Given that this is a big city, some awkward encounters are bound to occur.]

[personal profile] honorlao 2013-03-10 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
“Huh?” Zuko turns to face the person speaking to him, rubbing his hair as he does so. “Sorry, I--”

Wasn't paying attention? Right. “This place is weird.”

Just thought you ought to know that.
islandshore: (cocky)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-15 05:37 pm (UTC)(link)
"I take it you're not used to big cities..."

There's a smirk plastered on his face as he says that, and he props a hand on his hip. What he fails to mention is that the whole place is still fairly new to him, if only by a few months.

[personal profile] honorlao 2013-03-16 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
"No, I'm used to them," he replies, "just not cities like...this."

He waves a hand to indicate the area around him, as if this is enough to convey his meaning.
islandshore: (yeah right)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-16 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"That doesn't explain a lot, you know."

Though he glances at his surroundings, Riku merely shrugs. Yeah, it's packed full of shops and stands, but what makes it so strange to this guy?

"Where I come from doesn't look like this."

Better?
islandshore: (listen)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-18 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
"Okay, that makes a bit more sense."

And, really, it's something he can understand on at least some level. "We don't have anything this massive back home, but the technology's not too much of a stretch for the most part. Are you saying your world doesn't have stuff like street lights and television?"

[personal profile] honorlao 2013-03-18 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)
"Tele-what?"

That would be a no. Or a yes-his-world-doesn't-have-these-things.

islandshore: (unsure)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-18 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
...Well, that answers that question. Luckily, televisions aren't too hard to explain in theory. All he's gotta do is find the right way to articulate it without giving this guy a headache.

Bringing a hand to his chin, he takes a few seconds to mull it over before finally responding. "Television. They're like... boxes that show moving pictures with sound. Kind of like looking in a mirror, only you don't see your own reflection."

[personal profile] honorlao 2013-03-18 08:54 pm (UTC)(link)
"...really?" That sounds amazing, at first. But then he's gotta sit back and really think about this before he starts giving in to childish glee.

"So it's like a puppet show."
islandshore: (o rly?)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-18 08:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"Sort of. You can show puppets on TV, but some shows feature real people recorded with a camera." He pauses when he realizes this guy probably doesn't know what that is either. "And a camera's a device that can create pictures based on what's in front of it."

[personal profile] honorlao 2013-03-18 10:00 pm (UTC)(link)
"And those pictures can move? How does it work? Magic?"
islandshore: (le shrug~)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-21 04:04 pm (UTC)(link)
"Not exactly magic. It's all in the technology and engineering behind it." He shrugs. "Haven't exactly picked apart a camera, so I don't know all the details."

"Is there one nearby?"

He wants to see he wants to see!
islandshore: (determined)

[personal profile] islandshore 2013-03-30 05:23 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, Junes probably has at least a few in their electronics department."

He's got nothing better to do, so maybe he'll just lead this guy there. Besides, he's getting kinda hungry anyway.
