[list=][/list]In a small college town, barely large enough to warrant its name on a map if not for the school, a body is found. A student, their body dried to a husk, was discovered dead in the arcade they worked in. The police are dumbfounded, the school is terrified, and everyone is asking who would do this, and how? A handful of students, know the answer to the latter, and are determined discover the prior. The student was tossed into the Panopticon, and he won't be the last.

The Panopticon is a world created by the collective unconsious of humanity. It originally wasn't a prison, but has been twisted into one by the humanities desire for safety and conformity. Every living mortal has a prison cell in the Panopticon, created by the society's imposed expectations, especially those that don't match with one's true personality. When someone begins to crack under this social pressure, to be what others want by sacrificing their true self, their cell in the Panopticon becomes corrupted. If one enters the Panopticon (how is explained later) and their cell is corrupted, they will be dragged into it. Their soul will begin to slowly fall apart and if they don't escape within three weeks they will die.

However there is a way to break free and turn the Panopticon's chains into power. The cells are created by others expectations, wanting their inhabitants to abandon their true selves and bow to this pressure. But if one rejects this, stands up and declares their true, self the lock will be broken and a Persona is summoned. This power takes a physical form that represents one's true self and gives this individual incredible power.

------------
------------

And there is the full introductory prompt, what is happening, where its happening, and how we fight back. Each player will control a student (maybe more later but we'll start with one) who gains access to a Persona after entering the Panopticon. Each Persona is based on a historical, mythological, or literary character, and has an associated element and tarot arcana. Only one PC per Arcana, so I'll keep a list.

Here is the character forms:
Name:
Age:
Gender:
Arcana:
Personality:
Appearance:
Persona Name:
Element:
(options are Fire, Ice, Wind, Lightning, Psy, Atomic, Light, and Death. If multiple people have the same elements, that's ok.)
Appearance:
Other:
This is a good place to put what weapon your character uses to fight, story elements you would like your character to have, or just extra notes that dont fit a previous section.

Please pm me the filled form before posting.

Here is my example character, and the one I plan on playing

Name: Lance Keller
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Arcana: Magician

Personality: A very sarcastic and apathetic person, Lance responds to most of life with a raised eyebrow and a chuckle. He rarely rushes or puts more effort forward than needed, and if personally insulted or provoked will be unfazed. However when someone gets violent, with himself or especially others, he will get violent back to stop them. By his complaining he clearly doesn't want to, but something makes him do it regardless. He is somewhat self destructive in the long term, and is drinking to ignore something from his past.

Appearance: Lance doesn't do much to maintain his appearance, but does well the disheveled look well. He has long hair brown and a respectable beard, with light skin and dark eyes. He often wears a jacket and/or hoodie, only wearing less when it gets really hot. He's perpetually tired, and probably tipsy from drinking. The loose clothes make it hard to tell, but he's in surprisingly good shape, though he still has a bit of a beer belly. Nearly always carries around a bottle of something.

Persona Name: King Gambrinus
Element: Fire
Appearance: Gambrinus appears as a firey Jester, lithe and mischievous, weary both a crown and jesters cap. His large cloak is trimmed in flames, and he always has a dangerously playful smile. He carries a large glass flask, which contains a continuously flaming brew.

Other: Lance is a practiced martial artist, and uses Drunken Boxing style primarily. Due to the mass conception that drunken boxers get more powerful the drunker they are, he can get stronger within the Panopticon by carrying harder liquors.

------------

And that is Lance. He will start the story already being aware of the Panopticon, due to backstory shenanigans. He will help your characters learn, overcome, and eventually save others from the Panopticon. And hopefully they will help him learn to deal with his past issues and become a less literally drunken boxer.

Name: Lesley Ilano Reyes (Lee)
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Arcana: The Hanged Man

Personality: "People who ask for respect wear black leather shoes,"

Confident, open, aggressive, brash. Lesley is down to earth to the point of shamelessness and strives to do what needs to be done to get through the day. Though he isn't a slob, he enjoys living his way almost to an exhibitionistic degree and he's quick to snap at anyone that disapproves or targets him because of it.

Though he has no physical ability, he can scare off most people with his rage. If threatened with violence, Lee would rather run than fight, but if cornered, he'd do anything in his power to survive the encounter.

Appearance: Image
standing about 5'6" Lesley has developed a protruding abdomen from living off of cereal and free campus event food. He attempts to dress up at times and clean his appearance when he feels like treating himself.

Lee's temper has made him some enemies and he's taken to carrying around a taser in a the side pouch of his bag, pepper spray on a lanyard and a pocket knife in his hip pocket for protection.

Persona:
Heruka 1: "Wrathful deity of the body" Yamantaka.
Element: Psy Image
An immense androgynous being composed of thick wispy black and white outlines. Its body is that of a human with 6 arms and two legs, though its immediate appearance is startling its demeanor is almost comically easygoing and jovial. Some would say the god is so enlightened, it's strange actions are beyond human comprehension....
Most would say it's a goofy naked cloud.

Other:

Lee hates being called Lesley but he can't bring himself to legally change the name.

Lee hangs out with a strange collection of people around campus from preppy students to homeless people in the park.

Lee is open and kind to most anyone that treats him at least tolerably well, even if he's had bad experiences with them in the past.

Alright it looks like we're ready! Let me lay down some groundwork on when/where the RP will be starting, so we don't have any issues getting to the good stuff.

The RP will start on the first day of classes, theres an orientation assembly all sophomores are supposed to go to. They'll hand out student ids there, which are required to get food from the cafeteria and get into the dorms, so it's encouraged that students at least drop in.

The first murder will happen the next night.

Lance has a house a bit away from the college, and is renting out the two spare bedrooms for extra cash. Or you can give your character a different place to live, there are dorms around the college and apartments in the city.

Having roommates is cheaper so Lee's down to live off campus in a place with you two.

I've posted the rp: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=53794

The house has three floors, a main floor with a bedroom and bathroom, a second floor with two bedrooms, and an attic Lance locks the door too.

Hope the post is alright, I kinda went for an "annoying younger brother" vibe, where he's excited to have Lance around but he pushes buttons for the fun of it all.

Considering that Lance is god their unflappable, I dig the dynamic. It could definitely lead to some fun moments

Alright, sorry it took so long for me to respond.

Also warning, I actually finished that up while I was on sleeping pills, so it could be a little less sure than it could be
