I'll preface this by saying that this RP will be based on the manga and anime JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but will be completely detached from the main canon. The only thing that will be taken from that will be Stand Abilities. Hopefully, this will allow for people who aren't familiar with the series to still have fun with this. With that out of the way, lets get started!
Welcome to Launceston
In 2019, Launceston is a riverside town located in Tasmania, Australia. Contrary to popular belief, Tasmania can actually be a rather nice place. The people and places in Launceston are friendly, with older brick-and-mortar buildings sharing space with newer concrete establishments on the city blocks. In town you'd find small cafes and shops, the odd museum or historical monument, along with, surprisingly, the best Chinese food place in the world. At least according to tourists. But most people aren't attracted to this small town for its alarmingly good Asian cuisine. Launceston is right next to the scenic Cataract Gorge, with popular walking trails and a chairlift. As you can probably tell, nothing much happens here. Until...
First, some rules about how these work:
- A person may only have one Stand ability
- Stands can only be seen by other Stand users
- A Stand can only be destroyed by another Stand
- Any damage a Stand takes results in an equivalent injury to the user, and vice-versa
- If a Stand is destroyed, its user dies, and vice-versa
Other than that, the sky is the limit for what a Stand could be. They're manifestations of their user's psyche, so Stands are as diverse as the people who have them. They can appear robotic or organic, they can be made up of one entity or fifty that constitute the same Stand, or they could have no physical form at all and only manifest as an ability. Most people gain a stand in one of two ways, either being born with one or getting pierced by an artifact called a Stand Arrow. No one really knows where the Arrows came from, only that people who have Stand potential and sustain lethal wounds from an Arrow somehow survive and gain a Stand. Of course, what kind of ability you get is entirely random. It could be as powerful as stopping time, or as seemingly weak as collecting small objects from anywhere. But, with practice or the right situation, any Stand could be the strongest.
Sorry about how long the Stand section of this is, I hope I made it as clear as I can. Feel free to ask about anything you're confused about.
Borrowing some ground rules from Okotan Adventures; be nice and respect each other, no godmodding, powerplaying, bunnying, or other such nonsense, and please don’t play your character with plot armor. If you want your character to stay safe, play them safely; don’t just metagame them out of damage.
Stand Stats: (Ranked from A to E, A being the absolute best and E being incompetent)
-Range: (In meters 'cause we're not in America)
-Developmental Potential (This lowers as your Stand progresses)
