What is a Persona?

Post by Shewolf13 » Sun Dec 06, 2015 11:06 am

This is a question that pops up a lot. The simple, most straight-forward answer is this: a Persona is a character that is fully aware of the multiverse. Many of them have a way, whether it be through natural abilities, magic, or technological to travel to the various worlds of the multiverse. They are also a member of the Collective.

Of course, many also use their Persona to represent them around the forum (like in the shoutbox and other OOC areas) and that is perfectly acceptable, though not required at all.

Can I have more than one Persona?
The simple answer is yes! You can have as many Personas as you want, though keep in mind that when taking part in a large forum event, like that of the War, it might be a bit unwieldy to use more than one Persona.

Are there limits on the Personas?
This is a bit trickier. Keep in mind, many of the personas you'll encounter have almost deity-level abilities, but each has their own story. No one likes those who God-mod, so while having God-like abilities is fine, be aware that things are often not that simple and each Persona has some kind of weakness/flaw.

If you have any questions or would like some help figuring out your Persona, then check out this topic in the Academy: Persona/Persistent World Help.
Thanks so much for the set, Sammy!
