Okay. I wonder how Alice could summon it.

In persona 3 she's the second strongest Death Persona. Second only to Thanatos.
Nyx is a personification of human emotion, the collection all the Arcanas. It was not Alice summoning Nyx. It was Nyx using Alice as a conduit of the Death Arcana to touch the world.

I summoned it as a player. Alice, as a character, was possessed by Nyx. ;) Mental breakdown, plus a legion of howling souls crying for revenge attracted Nyx, the concentration of negative feelings was simply too much, and even so, it could only act because Alice is a really strong member of the Death Arcana, a lesser Persona or anyone not tied to the Arcanas wouldn't be able to channel it at all. The amount of power that Alice's necromancy could draw from these souls was enough to sustain it for as long as it did, though the Physical Manifestation, plus Moonlight Gown (Reflect Everything) plus Night Queen (Damage plus causing a random status effect) was simply too much for Alice, which is why Nyx jumped out and vanished as soon as it did that combo.

For Nyx to appear, as in Real Physical Nyx, fully powered and direct instead of acting through a proxy... Mewtwo would cry for mommy. :lol: But that takes a full year of events, with the Arcanas manifesting one at a time every full moon, and when Nyx descends, it's doomsday.

I'll pretend I know those in-game terms XD
Yeah, I understood enough of it, I was curious. The only Nyx I know is the one who could kick Zeus' ass.

Uh... Can I just pass this turn? I'm going to be gone for 2 weeks without internet and it's finals week, so I'm just going to have to say skip me this turn.

Considering how we're all "Not sure if ARG is over".
Maybe this RP will actually stop now...

So, I know this has been silent for a while, but it's time to get things moving again! Here's the deal: I need someone to do a collab post with me. Someone conscious, obviously. Also, someone capable of getting all of the not-conscious people and all of the people incapable of doing it themselves off an island flying miles in the air.

Though, I suppose I could just have you run down one of the tethers Sabrac created to hold it up...

Well, whatever. Point is, I need a partner. I was gonna get Isla, but she's got some tough stuff going on right now, so I need volunteers.

So, no takers? Xana has offered to work with me again, but I was going to wait and see if anyone else wanted to take this chance before I accepted.

I think I could, but I remember I had a reason not to, and I was awaiting for some situation to unfold before saying "I'm in". If I could remember what I was awaiting for...

Alice is out, she could card-glide everyone down, but already having played aside, she's unconscious herself.
And vic... I'm afraid Isaac can't carry everyone down on his own. Not within a few short minutes.

I mean I guess I could have Red come to back you up but he would need another Power of Existence buff to keep fighting and we probably don't want to attempt that while being attacked by One-wing angel!Mewtwo

Well, I just need someone to go handle getting everyone off the island, because if anyone is still there when I finish, well... Let's just say that between Sabrac and MewTwo, there will not be much left of them.

Working with me on this essentially consists of whoever it is running up towards Alice as MewTwo tries to kill her, seeing me intercept MewTwo, getting orders from Sabrac to take everyone and flee, then doing so.

I'm glad to announce that SABRAC IS BACK. :twisted: Ever-present monologues and all.

Xana, I'm now looking for you, so when you are ready to work on it, come and look for me. I DO have some things I will be doing this afternoon, so if I am not around, just wait a bit and hopefully I will show up.

Sicon I know you are busy with stuff but in order to try and get this RP up again I am reinstating the three day rule. Three days from now if you don't have a new post up I am going to skip to the next player.

I'm about to where I lost the post last time. Think I'm probably heading to bed early. I should be able to get the rest done tomorrow.

Back and writing. Going pretty well. Just about to the part where MewTwo and Sabrac destroy everything ever. :P

I think it's relevant to say that when I started reading the previous two posts, Emiya started playing in my shuffled Youtube playlist.
