D. Walkthrough
-------------------------------

Well, here comes the longest part of all section. Let's get to the
point. This is all far from complete. So please don't give me any 
critical e-mail first.

NOTE : I will not tell you when you need to do level up or not. Just do 
it with your own suggestion.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Prologue
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Starts with FMV, then you can see a young man standing in the temple.
Enjoy the talk and than the scene change to a mysterious conference 
Room, where some people talking about neat stuff of summoning 
(suspicious huh?).
The scene changed to the office and soon we will meet our main 
character, Maya. Let's go on and enjoy the conversation right now. 
Nothing is important, I guess. But I will soon add it if something is 
important. After you, regain control of your character, go outside the 
Mizuno's Office. And you'll encounter Yuki. After you back regain 
control of your character. Go talk again to Yuki near the elevator. She 
will mad that Maya can't get her time off. Talk to Fujii, person next 
to Yuki. And after that, make sure you talk to everyone in the office. 
After talking with all of them, go to elevator, and Yuki will inform 
you that your friend, Ulala Serizawa, is waiting in the receptionist.
Get to elevator and you will come to Receptionist. Enjoy talking and 
you will be assisted by Ulala in your research. After you regain 
control, go to the exit door, NOT the elevator. And you will now be 
taken to the first dungeon.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
7 Sister HS
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Well, once you enter. You automatically be taken to Faculty Room. See 
the conversation, as you'll learn more about the incident. After you 
regain control, be sure to talk to every teacher. After that exit the 
room.
Here is a map of 7 Sister HS from the Floor 1 to the Floor 4.

   S

    After exiting the room, you are know in the hallway at the Floor 2.  
Make sure to grab 'Awaken' near the stairs, and now down to Floor 1.  
You can talk to students if you want to. In the Floor 1, go to  
Courtyard and you'll see an event happened. After regain control, you  
can either talk to people (there's another Maya here) or directly go to  
Principal Office in the Floor 3. In floor 3, there's money (1200).
    Once you enter, you'll realize the principal has been murdered  
sadistically. Katsuya will enter and soon you will encounter with Joker 
(the rumor is true!!!, if you listen to the story). And then, your own 
Persona will be draw out, and soon you'll come to magic land meet with 
Philemon who asked your help. You'll be back to your world, and then 
Katsuya will call the office for back-up and Ms. Saeko will show up. 
After you regain control of Maya, be ready for fun !!! Explore the 
school which now infested with demon. 
    Your first encounter will be Slimer, which will teach you about 
Contact (See Contact section for detail). After that, you will 
encounter random battle with demon in the school. 
    Your objectives now is to go to Faculty Room and find the teacher 
who held the Clock Tower Key. Answer yes to help him and he will hand 
over the Clock Tower Key to you.
    Now, go all the way to the Floor 4. Once you near the ladder up to 
Floor 4, the strange feeling will come up, which means Joker is near. 
Enter the Clock Tower using your Clock Tower Key, and you will see the 
scene. (Notice that Katsuya called Joker with #501). Now, be ready for 
the boss battle.

Boss Battle.
Enemy    : Empusas, 2 Apep
Reward   : 100 Exp, (5000) 
Strategy : It's easy, just keep attacking and using your fussion spells
           everytime possible. Healing when necessary and you'll win 
           eventually. (Note : If you're level higher than Lv.5, you'll
           find it easy, but if you're lower, than be prepared for
           though battle.)

After the battle, your characters will be asleep because the spell from 
the Joker. Now, here comes the rescue, the deja-vu boy, and will tell 
Maya go spread rumor in the MS Amano. And then he leave. The scene will 
change to the hall in front of Principal Office, when Kazuya talk to 
the other police officer. Now, you'll see that Kazuya are off the team, 
but it doesn't make him let the Joker loose. He decided to go with you.
Now, just walk to the stairs or to the black scene behind Ms. Saeko to 
reach the city map. 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
Area : Rengedai
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
You'll now walk in the city map. The green dot represents you, while 
the blue dot represents other people. Now, let's explore this area 
first. You'll find the temple in the north and shopping mall (Lotus 
Plaza) in the southeastern part. Nothing too much to do though. But 
you'll find a rumormonger in the Sushi Gatten at Lotus Plaza. Exit this 
map, by walking until the end of street and choose Amano area.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
Area : Aoba
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
Let's check the city. Right in the north is shopping mall (Aoba Dr.). 
In the center is Kismet Pub (the office where Maya work). At the west 
is Aoba Park.

Go straight to Aoba Dr. and enter Kuzuncha, you'll know get into 
conversation. After regain control of Maya, talk to Chief Todoraki, and 
choose spread rumor, then choose 'power that emblem holds', then 'It 
repels Joker'. After finished, enjoy the conversation again, then get 
ready to go to 2x Slash to meet Baofu. 2X Slash is located at Aoba Dr.,
the option next to Kuzuncha.

Enjoy the conversation, and at the pub, enjoy the FMV too. Now, after 
that, any pub will sell weapon! Upgrade your equipment now. You'll also 
get the new character, Baofu. :). Once you back to city map, Baofu will 
mention about Velvet Room. Go there, it is the last option in the Aoba 
Dr. Inside, you'll find the follower of Philemon : Igor, Belladonna, 
Nameless, and finally Demon Artist. Here, if you want to draw a card 
and have a Free Tarot Card, talk to Demon Artist. If you want to 
summon, 
talk to Igor.

You can talk to rumormonger in the Sushi Gatten at Rengedai to find 
the new rumor. Back to Kuzuncha and spread it. Now, Time Castle 
(shop in the Lotus Plaza) will sell spell Cards. Good isn't it?

After you done re-equip yourself, go to Mt. Mifune, by exiting Aoba, 
and then choose Mt. Mifune. Be sure to bring some new Persona, and see
them in action.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Mt. Mifune
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I bring Surya, Harpie, Pixie, Robin Goodfellow, and also Poltergeist 
here. Don't know if it's the best choice.

Talk to Shady Security Guard only to find out you can't keep going. So 
it means you need to take a turn around. There's a small pathway under 
the guard, take it and you will enter the 2nd dungeon.

Here is just easy actually. You just need to rely on your map (triangle
button), so you can just pass it. But, you also want to gain some level 
first right. Here is the good thing, you can turn in town and recover 
anytime you want, of course, you need to drive all your way back to the 
main entrance of the dungeon. I will include just simple map, the real 
one is too big and I don't think I can draw it accurately (you'll see 
that).

The clue here is just to go to ascending slope. IF you go to descending 
slope, you'll be back to the entrance. There is only one condition to 
go 
to descending slope, if you want to get an item (). (not considering if 
you want to get to town and heal).

Once you can reach, the rear entrance entrance of Sanitarium, you have 
just passed the Mt. Mifune. 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Sanitarium
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
Once you go in, you'll find two body killed by demon. Then Kazuya and 
Baofu will have some argument, and Maya will be given the option (I 
choose the second). And after you back to regain control, go in, and 
you'll be in the long corridor inside. The first room is Velvet Room, 
the second is Healing Shrine, with Trish inside. Go all the way to the 
stairs.

E. Contact
-------------------------------
Here comes the trickiest part from Persona. Contact the monster. While 
your exploration in the Persona world, you will encounter many demon, 
and interestingly, you can make contact with them, and if you lucky, 
you'll get either Contract or Tarot Card. 
You'll learn the basic of Contact from the first Slime you encountered 
in the 7 Sister HS. He will tell you how to contact the demon and also 
the aura which show up their emotion. And lastly, about the demon 
personality, which is determined which kind of contact needed to get 
the best result.

Here is the list of aura of the demon :
RED   0-----------? anger, once reached 3 times, the demon will either
                     attack you or leave you or break the contract if 
                     you have one.
GREEN 0-----------? joy, once reached 3 times, the demon will make a 
                     contract with you if you don't have one, or give 
                     you an option of item, money or info from him if 
                     you already have a contract.
YELLOW + '!' 0----? interest, once reached 3 times, the demon will give 
                     you a Tarot card and also a bonus if you have 
                     contract.
BLUE 0------------? fear, once reached 3 times, the demon will run away 
                     from you. 
Note : it is possible to have aura in the monster more than one from 
       above. For example, green with '!' mark means joy and interest. 
       BEWARE : You may get nothing when this happened.

About personality, you may find that demons have 8 basic personality
and their personality can be a mix between those 8. The personalities 
are : wise                 aggressive
      foolish              timid
      cheerfull            tempered
      gloomy               arrogant
Every personality has their own way to get a best result when you 
contact, sometimes, you need a particular character in your party 
before you can contact with the demon. 

If you manage to get contract with monsters, you will soon realize that 
the monster will have some circle under their feet. If you later 
encounter the monster again, and if you make them joy again, you'll be 
given item or money or info based on your choice. Also if, you make 
them interest, you can get double of tarot cards and an addition, Free 
Tarot Cards. The maximum number your contracts is 3. So, if you want to
make another contract, you must first have to break the old one first.

Well, you can see the best way to contact a demon from my demon list 
below.

More About Persona

Right now, I'm experiment with the persona that can be summoned in the 
Velvet Room. The first thing comes in mind is that looks like every 
Persona has different compatibility among the characters. I realize it 
when I see the SP needed to summon Person differ each person, and also 
some persona can not be used by spesific character. I hope anybody can 
help me with this.
