Archived: Persona: Were the World Mine-1
Alberichstadt is a town with potential. Standing firmly between the ancient and rural past of Germany and the modern city future, people from all walks of life have come to the town, being held up as a model of immigration and metropolitan acceptance.
Alberichstadt is a town with dreams. Drachenblatt Academy is a microcosm of the town as a whole, an old factory that had been renovated and equipped with modern educational materials, creating what has become a strange mixture of elite boarding school and heavily subsidized scholarships and financial assistance for those less fortunate. The design is experimental but has been hailed as a place where all can find their future.
Alberichstadt is a town with problems. Despite the metropolitan surface, tensions run high. A rash of missing person cases and teenagers have begun to exhibit a range of psychological and behavioral problems that have been commonly lumped together under the banner of the 'verlonekinder, or Lost Children', many blaming the stress of immigration and learning how to adapt to German society for their strange actions. Some say that they have seen an ominous man in red in the streets of the city, and Drachenblatt Academy suffers from intense class and national tensions which often are used as excuses to abuse one another in the school's social hierarchy. Inequality and the labyrinthine nature of the peerage in the school have given rise to many rumors and superstitions, lending the place an almost unreal air.
Alberichstadt is a place with darkness. Through the looking-glass of reality, another land awaits born from the the dreams and darkness of mankind, where the Black Queen rules from her castle and brings subjects into her realm of torment and the Pale Wolf stalks the unknown reaches, bringing the horror and finality of the monster to those who cannot escape its clutches. The Shadows grow within this Forest of Mirrors, and it becomes the duty of those who have discovered the existence of this place and awakened to the power of their own tales, the power of Persona, to determine its nature and learn the story of its inhabitants in order to save the town of Alberichstadt... and perhaps the entire world, from joining the Lost Children forever.
