This is Sanyo news! The warmth of summer has just arrived, the odd chill that was spring is now gone! We got some strange news for you rumor mongers though. It seems that there is a cherry blossom tree atop the Bubble. All attempts to have it taken down seem to have failed. For now it still seems to be under investigation.
At a glance, the city of Madasui seems normal. Thanks to a wide range of things to do; a somewhat prestigious local academy; and more than a few rumors; it seems like a town well-suited to anybody of any age, culture, or interest. Recently, though, some people have begun feeling "empty." Those affected by this phenomenon—called "The Nothingness Curse" by the locals—lose their memories, their motivations, their emotions, and in some cases… their lives.
Across the globe, in the rainy city of Roselake, Maine, a similar disease has started popping up at an alarming rate. The so-called "Eros' Blessing" causes its victims to become pure Id or Superego—to either give into their most basic desires, or suppress the parts of themselves they disagree with (no matter how small). From these cases, those afflicted seem less… Human and more like feral animals.
But there are more things to deal with in both cities than just the loss of self; modern life still needs to go on, after all—though recently a mysterious application called "The Cathedral of Shadows" has started leaking to the public, even though no one can access it. ..
Only a select few know the truth: the various demons and creatures of myth are real, born from mankind's own Collective Unconscious. This so-called "sea of the soul" also gives rise to Shadows—monsters that seek to become whole by either devouring their human counterparts or by consuming enough other Shadows to become "whole."
With all of these strange occurrences, it's time to ask yourself: Who are you?
Recently revived after a period of inactivity, Persona: Shattered Heaven is an AU, non-canon, forum role play site based on Shin Megami Tensei: Persona. Here are just a few of its features:
[*] An Open, Helpful Community: A dedicated staff team, no word count, and well-organized guides make the site welcome to people of all experience levels! Ask any question you might have and a staffer is sure to answer as soon as possible. [*] Two Cities, Many Plots: Both Madasui and Roselake have their own plot threads. Fast travel and ways for characters to understand each other are included, too! [*] Several Character Classes: Players can choose from Persona Users, Shadows, and Devil Summoners—all of whom have their own unique combat mechanics. [*] A Unique, Detailed World: The site doesn't just draw from Persona; it also includes elements or names from the broader Megami Tensei franchise, fighting games, and even Resident Evil to ground or otherwise expand the setting!
