This is based on a server I made on Discord. The server is dead (it's kind of my fault because I lost access to Discord) so that's why I'm making a version here!

Mysterious happenings have been occurring in Japan over the last few years that no-one can seem to wholly explain. From a large cult forming to welcome "The Fall" appearing and disappearing, a strange fog doing the same in several different cities, and a group of phantom thieves who had the ability to "steal hearts," nothing seems to be out of the ordinary anymore. That is until the people within the country begin disappearing without a trace. At first, it simply seemed to be homeless people and drunkards, but then it got worse. Police seem to be baffled at how so many people, sometimes including entire families, would disappear without a trace. People are panicking and no-one knows what to do. Life simply seems to go on, however, despite these disappearances.

One day, the main protagonist of this story, whoever they may be, discovers a strange elevator while on their way into the city of Shibuya. Little did they know this elevator would lead to the cause of these disappearances and to a strange room draped with blue...

Unlike most Persona games to which The Velvet Room is only open to the protagonist, The Velvet Room in Persona Dusk is open to all individuals.
It offers many services to aid Users:
- Selling of weapons, both melee weapons, and firearms
- The fusion of Personas for the protagonist
- Mock battles for light practice in combat
- Selling of items

The Velvet Room is attended by Jacklyn (played by ForgottenHome).
The Velvet Room sells a variety of weapons for your disposal, both melee and ranged.
Weapons must be maintained for effective usage. Jacklyn will offer this service for free.
You must be able to carry a weapon to use it well. For instance, a meeker character probably couldn't carry a two-handed sword.

Ranged weapons are powerful and you can find all types in the shop but they require ammunition that must be bought.

Taking your weapons out into the public can get your character arrested for illegal possession as these are REAL WEAPONS.
Also, keep in mind that they could actually kill someone.

Yeeeah, I'd be interested.

Not in being the protagonist or antagonist but i'd be up for a Support Persona role if I could. Or supporting character social-link otherwise.

I'm glad you think that!
Question: what is the naming theme for Persona's?
Naming theme? Well, as long as that Persona is original, you can use whomever you want.
This looks cool, though I wonder how many persona users can there be in this rp?
I'm thinking about 7-8, including the protagonist and the supporter.

Now this is gonna be a toughie. Persona rps tend to be extremely ambitious, its the fate we have to accept as attempting to do something with it.

I'm looking at the antagonist, due to how influencial they will be to the story, and if they play a major role, wouldn't their personality need to be a certain way to facilitate such?

A very tough position to fill, one that requires a careful hand...
