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. History : S : stairs, L : locked. Floor 1 Janitor Room Bike Rack __________ ?????? ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ????????????????????????? ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ??????????????????????????????????????

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. Rear Entrance __________________ ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !__________________! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ____________!__________________! ! ! ! ! !

Road 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. TO BE CONTINUED . . . ------------------------------- 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. ------------------------------- F.
