Welcome to a crossover unlike anything you've ever seen before.
For you see...
This isn't a dream.
This isn't the 4th wall.
This is a plot which affects BOTH
games. Both games will be uncovering information and learning more about their respective worlds. We've been preparing this event for the past few months, and we hope you will have fun with this as much as we do.
Yes that's right!
Tower of Animus is...
Tower of Animus is set, appropriately in the aforementioned tower. Everyone living here has been told their world has been destroyed and they've been rescued and brought here. Unfortunately, "here" is an evergrowing, often disturbing Tower run by administrators of varying levels of sadism.
As you might have guessed, Animus is very much a horror game, with all that implies. The events range from unintended and dangerous accidents to sadistic surgery or games, and even when nothing is going on the Tower is dangerous--just look at the bestiary. Unfortunately, Ruana is in charge of the Tower this month, which means games that you probably won't enjoy much. Anyone from the Tower has a metal collar with liquid in it that matches one of the colors of the rainbow.

Destiny Strings is...
Destiny Strings is set in the closed off city of Hinoto-ri. It's closed off because the outside world is a barren wasteland where it's impossible for life to grow...or so they say. Demons roam the city during the night, but the citizens (and now the visitors) have the means to defend themselves: Persona, which is a manifestation of a person's psyche that takes the form of a god or a demon.
Despite the setting and the presence of demons, the genre is mainly slice of life and action. Some days, it's just plain dull!
But some times, you discover in a temple during the 13th hour a Shining Trapezohedron that allows you to travel through time and space! And apparently this means landing in a tower. And not just any Tower! The Tower of Animus!
Oh right, and everyone coming in is a full registered Persona user.

▶ If you play the same character in both games, the Animus equivalent will fall down and faint if they are close to their double character. This is both for plot-related reasons AND due to the fact that we don't want munsterabation.
▶ However if the character is played by two different people, it will be different! The animus character will feel dizzy and MAY sometimes faint if you wish, but they will be able to hold conversation, at least.
▶ Destiny Strings characters, you can only die and be revived ONCE in the tower with the Revival Beads you have been given. If you die a second time, it's for real. PLEASE ADVISE THE DS MODS IF YOU PLAN TO DO THIS!!
▶ Obviously, only Animus characters can start new logs, or post in the network. Destiny Strings' characters are able to post in them during the time between the start and end of the event.
▶ There will be mod-made open posts so that String characters can go around.
▶ Destiny Strings Visitors will be staying in the Vacant Rooms
▶ The Tower has a lot of levels! Look at them all here.
▶ The Tower has a menu, look at it here
. You must eat the oatmeal before anything else or you will vomit up anything you eat
▶ Destiny Strings players, once you do join this log, understand that your character cannot return until the event ends and that yes, you CAN sign them up for the typical Animus events of this month.
▶ Any additional questions can be answered below.
▶ Enjoy your despair.
▶ We'll have so much fun together! :)
