Has anyone tried this before? Some friends and i were talking about doing an SMT type game if we could find or make functioning rules that weren't hyper autist or cringe. I would rather stay away from the persona side because cringe normie game, but it does have some easier things to work with, like set summons for specific characters.
>>76945875Velvet BookA hack of Monsters and Other Childish Things.Uses ORE.
>>76945975This would probably be your main bet. There's also Geist: The Sin-Eaters, which is WOD. Would maybe take some reflavoring but could definitely fit with what you're looking for
>>76945875Do it in GURPS.
>>76947602For the love of god understand when someone makes these threads they never want to hear the answer of GURPS.
>>76945975Did Velvet Book use Persona 3? I thought it was Persona 5. I want a game where killing myself is a central dynamic
>>76948268How you summon your persona is up to you, there's no strict mechanic for that.
>>76948268P3 didn't have killing yourself as much as accepting death by using a metaphorical gun. That's basically the theme of the game. Same as P4 being about Tarot cards and defying your pre-chosen path by crushing them symbolically, and P5 being about denying the facade you've built up for the society around you, and thus masks. Etc.
