"Welcome to the Velvet Room." -Igor

Persona User[edit]

You are a Persona User. You have seen your own true face and that has made you stronger. Strong enough to fight for what you believe in, strong enough to protect what matters, or strong enough to crush anyone or anything that gets in your way. Whatever you decide, as you come to terms with who you are, who you were, and who you are becoming, your power will grow and take shape. However, what that shape is will depend on you.

Making a Persona User[edit]

It depends on how you build it but it can potentially fill any role in the party.

Abilities: First and foremost comes Wisdom. It determines how a Persona user understands himself and others and is what he uses to manifest his power. Followed by Charisma (should you choose to battle alongside friends) and Constitution (should you choose to battle alone).

Races: Any person with a strong will can call upon a persona (requires a sense of self)

Alignment: Any (Mostly Chaotic)

Classes: Cannot have Psionic Powers

Starting Gold: 3d4*10 (being introspective doesn't pay that well...).

Starting Age: Any age (It's never too early to learn something about yourself, or too late for that matter).

Ex-Persona User[edit]

When a Persona denies themselves who they are or who they have become in some form or fashion, they are considered to have fallen out of touch with their true selves and can therefore no longer call upon their Persona. They only way to regain full control is to fully admit to yourself what you are/have become.

Campaign Information[edit]

Playing a Persona User[edit]

Religion: Everyone is different, but keep in mind that running about with a persona summoned is probably bad manners in Sunday school.

Other Classes: Once again it is very much up to the person on this one however it's probably a fair generalization that they don't enjoy people who like to steal identity from people (e.g. thralling them etc.)

Combat: It depends on how you build your persona... I feel like starting to sound like a broken record.

Advancement: It usually has a good Wisdom stat so... druid maybe?.

Persona Users in the World[edit]

PER...SO...NA!
—-I think every Persona User at some point...

They can come from all walks of life as long as they have a sense of self.

Daily Life: I'm not about telling you how to live but uh... stay in school I guess?

Notables: Naoya Todo, Tatsuya Suou, Maya Amano, Makoto Yuki, Aigis, and Yu Narukami.

Organizations: Go ahead and make your own. It's your life.

NPC Reactions: Hello normal person. Why did you say Persona? WHAT THE <redacted> IS THAT!?

Persona User Lore[edit]

Characters with ranks in Knowledge-Arcana can research Persona Users to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.

<-the appropriate skills->
DC Result
5 They can summon something called a Persona.
10 A Persona can be used by them as an extension of their powers and abilities.
15 A Persona is discovered upon someone coming to terms with how they really are.
20 However, just because people can access a Persona does not mean they know themselves perfectly. Were they to once again begin lying to themselves they may lose control of it.

Persona Users in the Game[edit]

<-How characters of this class fit in the game (PC and NPC) and what roles they play.->

Adaptation: <-Possible variant conceptions of this class.->.

Sample Encounter: <-DM placement for NPCs of this class.->.

EL : <-Encounter scenario and character info on sample NPC including stat block. The CR of the NPC is typically the same as the EL for the encounter.->.
