So, if you win first place in one category and second in another, that's a grand prize of 10,500 Z-Tokens and TWO items in-game. Wow.

My entry isn't quite as creative as the rest, but that doesn't stop me! I really love how creative you guys were in your entries, but only a few can win. Best of luck to everyone!

No rule against it, but I'll warn you that I tend to start looking over entries early so that it doesn't take fifty billion years to judge.

Meaning if you change something, I may not see it because I've already read and judged your entry. So you may want to get any corrections finished as quickly as possible after posting your entry to ensure that I read the best possible entry you can provide.

Just finished and submitted my entry. Not really expecting to win or anything, but at least I tried. Good luck to everyone and may the best entries win.

Set my entry up here. It ended up being a bit too long because of the explanation for the armor's effect and all the notes on the appearance and animation... Sorry bout that :/

I don't know if my armor is feasible to create though because it just seems to complex... oh well. I had fun making it. A bit time consuming but oh well haha.

Good luck to all! I've already seen some fantastic entries. I really like "Reflected Shadow" by Fornever. So nifty.

Shad-O-Lantern looks terrifying but I like terrifying. Great job Keeper!

Shrouded Wild just sounds terrifying to fight... All those effects :O

Just posted my entry.

I don't think I have much of a chance of winning, but I thought I'd give it a try. Regardless, I'm looking forward to the results.

Posted my entry. However, I've stumbled upon a problem; I can't for the life of me figure out a balanced way to apply the self-damage effect.

So, the monster deals 10% extra damage on each hit(a *1.1 modifier). He's a tank, so he assumes a 75% hit rate against the player. He's meant to take self-damage in harm every time he misses, something like *[(hits missed/hits attempted)*modifier] of a standard attack. I have no idea what that modifier should be. He assumes to miss 25% of the time, so I have no idea how much damage he should take if he doesn't land a hit in that turn. It needs to balance out with the *1.1 modifier he gets(bumping his average damage to 82.5% instead of the normal 75%).

Similarly, I have a problem with the weapon. You can get the Shogun's katana, which has the same self-damage buff effect for the player. It assumes a 90% hit rate because it has a +5 BtH lean. So,it misses 10% of the time for a pure build. When I've tried to balance it out, logically, the unknown modifier in the self-damage equation should be higher than the Shogun's, because you miss less often than he does. Yet all my attempts have made the modifier lower than his. Plus, it's meant to be an MC bonus, so really, it should be like the weapon has a 5% damage bonus, with the self-damage covering for the other 5%.I have no idea what to do, because I'm not inventive when it comes to math.

Edited my post after a discussion with my brother.
Don't know how serious the release is actually supposed to be, but here's your P3/P4 spoof. :P
Well, at least I had fun thinking about it.

And on that note, I love everyone's ideas; they're all so creative. I especially love looking through the monster suggestions.

Hmm. There will be references.

I've got the general gist of it down. I'm not going to finalize anything until near the due-date. I rather not reveal what cards I'm playing til then.

Hmm. Spent a good 20 minutes skimming through the entries. Are you the only one looking over this, Lord Barrius? Must be rough for your eyes; having to look through all these walls of text. Also, does the monster have to be a shadow-version of an existing monster or not? Also, do I have to create my own interpretation? I remember someone providing a link to some anime/manga character. Can I do that also? Eh, I feel a bit silly after asking all these questions.


Level: 150
Power Level: 153, Mastercraft
Price: 96,820,666 Gold (1.1* for MC... 2* for compression)
...That's a bit too much, don't you think? That would dent even the wallet of the richest of players.

@Rafiq von den Vielen
Graphical details: Imagine Meduso with a Leprechaun's upper body and wearing a Leprechaun tophat, everything shadowed and slightly twisted. Also carries one of those bows.
Somehow, shadow leprechauns don't surprise me. I do feel you missed a perfect opportunity for a little pun.

@Aura Knight
A giant leprechaun that has been tainted by the Shadow Universe. This monster has the shape of a leprechaun, but is colored all black. Its eyes are glowing green. It has a green four-leaf clover on its chest.
Another leprechaun. Also disappointed at missed chance just like the above.

If the monster fails: 'Your foe denies its true self.'
If the monster succeeds: 'Your foe has accepted its true self.'
Took a closer look after you mentioned P3/P4. Well, nice to know that other people have similar interests with me.

@The ND Mallet Guy
Monster Name: Shadow Moose
Description: "Moose are one of the rarest, and most powerful, species of Lore. This one is a shadow of its true self, but it's still just as powerful. Prepare to meet your Moosey Fate!"
Are moose somewhat like deer? I think I prefer deers more. Deerys are pretty sinister-looking. But, I'm not going to make a shadow deery. :P

Well... The price isn't up to me to decide anyways.

And now that I look back on it... I think it's supposed to be half. I think having a skill built in is what makes the price double... My bad .___.
