In the bustling world of Persona 3 Reload, where school life and impending lunar disasters keep you on your toes, there's never a dull moment. Just when you thought you had enough to deal with, the enigmatic Elizabeth summons you to the Velvet Room in May with distressing news - people are vanishing within the treacherous labyrinth known as Tartarus.
These poor souls can hear the siren call of the Shadows, but without Personas to protect them, their fate is sealed. If you don't rescue them before the next Full Moon, they'll become permanent residents in the great beyond. But don't worry, it's not all selfless heroism - these lost souls are surprisingly generous with their rewards once you save them.
Now, let's rewind a bit. Picture this: you've just defeated the Emperor and Empress in a grueling battle, and you're starting to feel like a true Persona-wielding badass. But just as you're about to catch your breath, Elizabeth interrupts your well-deserved respite with a summons to the Velvet Room. Ah, the joys of being a hero!
Elizabeth explains that this is just the beginning of a game-long questline. As Apathy Syndrome continues to spread, more and more people will vanish into the depths of Tartarus. Fortunately, only you and your trusty SEES comrades have the power to locate and rescue these unfortunate souls.
From then on, you'll receive distress calls every lunar cycle, informing you about the latest missing person in Tartarus. If you're feeling particularly investigative, you can even check the bulletin board outside the Police Station at Paulownia Mall for additional leads. Elizabeth, being the helpful assistant she is, will provide you with specific floors to search, sparing you the agony of aimlessly wandering through the labyrinth.
But here's the catch: you have a limited time until the next Full Moon to complete each rescue mission. Spending too long in Tartarus without a Persona is like bringing a rubber duck to a sword fight - you'll get squashed. And Full Moon nights? Well, let's just say the Shadows turn into turbocharged fiends.
Now, here's the exciting part. In the revamped Persona 3 Reload, when you stumble upon a missing person in Tartarus, you have a choice to make. You can personally escort them back to safety at the entrance, or, if you're feeling adventurous and want to continue your exploration spree, you can request an escort. That's right, an escort service in Tartarus - the ultimate convenience!
By activating this mechanic, an inactive party member who was patiently waiting at the entrance will come to your aid and guide the lost soul back to safety. This is especially handy if you haven't fully scoured the floor and want to continue your treasure hunt. After all, who wants to lose progress when you haven't even found that elusive teleporter yet? The escort service has your back.
But let's not forget the real reason we're doing this. Besides the warm and fuzzy feeling of saving lives, rescuing missing persons in Persona 3 Reload is a rewarding endeavor. Each and every one of these grateful souls leaves a token of their appreciation with Officer Kurosawa at the Police Station. It could be cash, gear, skill cards, or even a secret recipe for the perfect ramen. Okay, maybe not the last one, but you get the idea.
These rewards can be collected the following day, and the best part is, they don't consume your precious time slots. So, be sure to check in with Officer Kurosawa regularly to claim your hard-earned goodies. After all, these lost souls aren't just grateful, they're also quite generous.
In the table below, we've meticulously documented every missing person you'll encounter in your heroic journey through P3R. We've included their names, the specific Tartarus floor where you'll find them, and the delightful reward they leave for you. Think of it as your personal guide to collecting all the goodies in the game. You're welcome!
So, gear up, summon your Personas, and get ready to embark on a rescue mission like no other. In the ever-unfolding tale of Persona 3 Reload, where lost souls await salvation and rewards abound, you'll discover the true meaning of heroism. It's time to shine your light in the darkest corners of Tartarus and bring hope to those who have lost their way.
