Moreover, one of the core themes of the Persona series is identity and self-acceptance; the boss theme of Persona 4 is named "I'll Face Myself" for a reason. Your Persona is your Shadow is yourself: "thou art I and I am thou," all that jazz. The characters in the Persona series have to face and learn to accept their flaws and shortcomings, not simply reject them out of hand. Having a separate Arceus--an explicitly dark or evil one no less--kind of defeats that. Both the Awakened and the Corruptors should ultimately have the same goal--it's just that the Corruptors have come to the completely wrong reason why they're doing so. Instead of seeking peace and understanding between Pokemon and humanity, the Corruptors seek control and domination--out of fear, greed, whatever--just like the villains of the Pokemon games have always done.
As for the identity/self-acceptance, I thought of that as well. I want people to include a problem they face regarding their identity, or personalities that are dark and/or disturbing.
Much love to Zurr
I don't know much about Persona but I am interested in knowing more abotu the games so I'll give this a go.
In the case of Arceus, he can be a "wishmaker" of some sort. Maybe grant the group it's power, or grant a wish of some sort. What do you think?
Do we want to get a Sign-up going for those interested, or are we wanting to plan it out a little further? I want this to be a group thing.
I'm still looking for a co-manager btw.
This sounds like it could be awesome. I'm totally in.
All of you better prepare for trouble

Well, since we know that each player will get a turn creating a dungeon for their character's issues, should we still have Social Links? In the Persona series (moreso P4 than P3), the Social Links elaborated on the issues brought up in that character's dungeon. So while the core issue was addressed in each character's respective dungeon, we only really saw the aftereffects and resolution of their problems in the Social Links. Should we make that a gameplay feature, or drop it for simplicity's sake?
Other than that, I think we're almost good for sign-ups. We've got plot, gameplay, etc. Just one last quibble: where exactly is this taking place ? It doesn't really matter, but it's the last major detail.
Well... what would you suggest? I prefer big cities, but I want the opinions of others.
I would prefer a big city. That way we can have more varied Social Links.
Big city as well; it's simply an easier environment to work in than a smaller town, because we can add newer areas more easily.
I vote for Seattle. Anyone else?
Sure. Fine with me.
