    Default A Bizarre New World: A JoJo's Bizarre Adventure RPG Sign Up & Discussion Thread



    Welcome to the year 0022 P.I. or 2043 A.D. for all of you old-fashioned folk.

    On December 21, 2021, three meteorites struck what was once the United States of America, setting off a chain of reactions that forever changed the world...but you already knew that.

    What you didn't know was that your father, Johannes Joestar, had recently passed away. Regardless of your relationship with him (whether or not you even knew about said relationship), your filial piety, curiosity, or maybe that hefty check which hinted at a massive inheritance has brought you to the Joestar Manor in what will begin a journey across this Bizarre New World


    ___________

    Greetings and welcome to my JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game.

    This game is set in an alternate (alternate) universe where the supernatural events of global proportions have occurred after the impact of three meteors in the USA, fracturing the country and resulting in the United Unions of the American Continents (or UUAC) being formed in its place. From these impact zones, the ash and debris filling the air and moving in all directions bring with it abnormal and supernatural reports although there appears to be little consistency in its effects.

    As for your characters, they begin to notice little changes recently in their lives. Some may notice a star-shaped birthmark on the back of their necks that didn't belong there before while others had it since birth and all have fallen ill with some unknown disease, plaguing them with feverish nightmares and the lingering feeling that something was watching them. Then came the letter, delivered in various ways, but all stating the same thing: their father, Johannes Joestar, had passed away. Whether or not your parent(s)/guardian(s) had informed them of their lineage early on, their mothers had kept it a secret, or anything else and in between, your characters are being summoned to attend the reading of his will.

    From there, expect some shenanigans that'll send you across the former united states.

    THE DAY EVERYTHING CHANGED

    Ocasek 678
    It began in the summer of 2021 when scientists discovered a meteoroid they would name Ocasek 678, one whose path was dangerously close to Earth. Despite the threat, most people of Earth were apathetic to its approach, having grown fatigued of one big panic after another. After all, this wasn't the first time such a news story had come up. Unfortunately, we would not be telling this tale if that was the case. Looking back, it seemed like a cruel joke as 9 years earlier, everyone had been abuzz about the supposed Mayan apocalypse when their records had been revealed to end abruptly on December 21, 2012. Some with darker humor say that someone must have gotten the last two numbers confused. It was on December 21, 2021, that Ocasek 678 reached the Earth, a majority of it burning up in the atmosphere with only a handful of sizeable striking the surface.

    Salem, Massachusetts; Roswell, New Mexico; and Gibsonton, Florida: there were few little things that could be considered similarities between these cities before, but that had now changed as they were each struck by the fragments of the meteorite.

    The 25th Hour
    The first sign that everything had changed was when the clocks began to act up. The evening after the impact, at 0100 hours analog clocks paused for an hour before resuming, and digital ones displayed the time as 2500. As strong as our networks and cybersecurity are, all it took was messing with the clocks for a majority of computers to become little more than paperweights. Civilization ground to a halt, crippled from the disconnect. The casualties would have been horrific were it not for organizations like the Speedwagon Foundation, who had prepared for the worst of emergencies from the beginning. Reeling from three impact events already, the United States could not recover from the 25th Hour. Within the following year, the U.S. would collapse, merging with Canada and Mexico to become the North American Republic which would later expand with the inclusion of those of South America to become the United Unions of the American Continents.

    The Old Stars and Stripes
    Some people don't like change, especially when it comes to governments and when the United States forced to dissolve and eventually merging into the UUAC, there were some who protested this, believing it to be one of many conspiracies. In the chaos of a country trying to rebuild from several disasters, it was fairly easy for one to exploit those outraged and vulnerable, leading to the creation of the Old Stars and Stripes, a militant group seeking to bring the United States back to its former glory. The O.S.S.'s leadership comprising of former military almost seemed ready from the beginning, as they wasted little time in assuming command of Roswell.

    Night Fever
    Alongside physical destruction from the impact events and global technological disaster, the end of 2021 also brought with it a new global pandemic in what was named the Night Fever. The first outbreaks were recorded in areas close to the impact zones but quickly spread to the point where cases were reported from areas on the opposite side of the world. Its symptoms were flu-like yet doctors were baffled to find a solution to it, as no treatment affected it. Many who caught it would perish, their bodies seemingly attacking themselves until vital organs shut down and those who survived developed paranoia and anxiety with some mentioning that they always felt watched.

    While there was never a cure or treatment found for Night Fever, it seems to vanish on its own and only becomes noticeable among the population every so often. It was during the latest flare-up that your characters caught it.

    ___________

    A BIZARRE NEW WORLD

    Life, for better or worse, has become a bit bizarre, although those born after the impact might not see it this way having known nothing else.

    Some who have known the before and after often say that when the meteors struck, nothing had been taken away, but rather they had added to it. This contradiction of words is perhaps the best and only means to describe the changes that have occurred for these regions do not appear to be areas recovering from devastation; they are as if they had been replaced by something more.

    Salem, Massachusetts
    At first glance, Salem appears to have been the least affected by the impact, save for some overgrowth of nature; that is until you notice that a sapling can sprout into a fully grown tree in the span of a mere day. Already reeling from the impact itself, most places affected were overran by nature shortly after and those with enough resources have been fighting a never-ending battle since then to keep the overabundance of flora at bay. Lately, there has been a growing push to stop wasting resources and coexist with nature, inspired by those who have learned to adapt to the ever-changing forests. Comprising of a 100-mile radius from the town, the Salem Impact Zone (or S.I.Z.), takes up a chunk of New England and due to the constant growth of flora, most transportation and export/imports rely on the ports.

    That is not why Salem has fascinated so many nowadays. That would be because the city has become a center of all things magical, as the town's history has seemingly come to life. Witches, wizards, and everyone in between thrive and study to their heart's contents (within reason), encouraged by the local government who seek to avoid repeating their morbid past and as result, new life-changing innovations in both mundane and supernatural have become daily occurrences. It is said that Salem is run by two, the mayor and Moonchild, the de facto leader of those familiar with the occult.

    Roswell, New Mexico
    No one has heard a peep from Roswell since the impact, save for rare statements from the O.S.S., so it is unknown just lies within in. When the meteor struck, it was as if the very land rose up to defy it as the entirety of Roswell and the surrounding 20 mile radius now sit atop a towering mesa. With its history of shady government experiments, extraterrestrial occurrences, and sudden silence, the plateau looms ominously over its neighbors.

    Gibsonton, Florida
    Out of the three, the Gibsonton impact zone (G.I.Z.) which spans from Tampa to Orlando, has been the most oddly affected. The landscape, warped and distorted, appears like something out of a dream and just as indescribable. Shortly following the impact, in what could be considered a rather distasteful move by Lucky Land, the company annexed the entire impact zone, turning it all into a massive theme park unlike anything ever seen on Earth.

    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    Name: Sandra Johansson
    Age: 25
    Date of Birth: August 12, 2018
    Gender: Female
    Race/Ethnicity: Mixed (Anglo-Hispanic)
    Place of Birth: Berlin, Germany
    Appearance:



    Weight/Height: 5'7/134 lbs (170.18 cm/60.8 kg)

    Personality: Sandra has a temper with a hairpin trigger. More often than not, she solves her problems with her fists, with varying success. Will insult someone for little reason other than they looked at her wrong. Appears to not care about anyone. Is unwilling to let people in and won’t let her guard down except when she’s alone.

    Likes:
    • Boobs, big ones
    • Fighting
    • Eating
    • Traveling
    • Star gazing


    Dislikes:
    • Nerds
    • Self-righteous/pretentious people
    • People who hurt children


    Background: Sandra had a rough upbringing. She was the middle child of a fairly well-off and was often forgotten about. Her older sister, Patrizia, was the golden child; her younger brother, Paul, was the baby and thus got whatever attention Patrizia didn’t. That left Sandra out in the figurative cold. Without very little attention or love given to her by her parents, the void was quickly filled with a simmer rage that she unleashed on anyone who she felt crossed her. The criteria for “crossing” her ranged from insulting her or her family, to looking at her cross-eyed. Those that offended her more often than not became very well acquainted with her fists. Her violent tendencies brought her into constant conflict with the police. Twice she was sent to a youth prison, serving a total of six years.

    Talent/Skills:
    • Knifeplay
    • Whittling


    Other:
    • Sandra is fluent in German, Spanish, and English. The latter two are spoken with a thick German accent.


    Strength (STR): 03
    Speed (SPD): 00

    Appearance:



    Stand Ability:

    Window of the Soul: Bring Me The Horizon, after physical contact has been established at some point in the last twelve hours, can display a person's true intentions within its pages.

    Conditions/Drawbacks: Sandra must have made physical contact with the person within the last twelve hours. Once those six hours have expired, she will need to make contact again.

    Speed (SPD): 35 (B)
    Range (RGE): 00
    Persistence (PST): 40 (B)

    CHARACTER SHEET

    Stand User
    Name: Miguel Foster
    Age: 30
    Date of Birth: October 25
    Gender: Male
    Race/Ethnicity: Afro-Costa Rican
    Place of Birth: Costa Rica
    Appearance:
    Weight/Height: 168 lbs/ 6'3
    Personality: An arrogant magician, who constantly seeks new ways of perfecting his craft. Maintains a calm, generally friendly disposition which often hides his craftier demeanor. Likes to plan ahead of time.
    Likes: Cards games, Gallo Pinto, hobby shops, maps
    Dislikes: Being lost, enclosed spaces,
    Background: He thought he knew it all, until someone showed him a magic trick with no solution, no gimmick, no secret. He investigated, he pried, but any attempt he could manage, amounted to nothing. He spent hours expanding his mind in libarires, going over tape footage and that too amounted to nothing. So, in the hopes of perhaps finding an answer elsewhere, he departed for the US.
    Talent/Skills: Stage Magic, sleight of hand,
    Other: Can play the accordion

    Strength (STR): 00
    Speed (SPD): 01
    Agility (AGI): 00
    Durability (DUR): 00
    Resistance (RST): 00
    Willpower (WIL): 00
    Perception (PER): 02
    Martial Arts (ART): 00
    Skill (SKI): 03 (Stage Magic, Sleight of Hand)

    Stand
    Name: ALL CAPS
    Appearance:
    Stand Ability: ALL CAPS can take one word that Miguel has either heard or read in the past ten minutes and use it to form a sentence in the air, with a max of five words. Each word of that sentence must be from a separate sentence. Whatever sentence is formed occurs and is able to be used by Miguel or against the opponent. The sentence can only form something physical or corporeal in nature.
    Conditions/Drawbacks: ALL CAPS can only form a sentence of a maximum five words. Miguel has to see the word or hear it to make use of it in ALL CAPS. Each word must be from a different sentence. Different sentences in the same paragraph are okay, one word answers are okay. ALL CAPS cannot change the nature of a living thing such as claiming that they are dead or giving them an affliction, but any inanimate object utilized by an enemy is fair game.
    Destructive Power (POW): B 45
    Speed (SPD): D 15
    Range (RGE): E 05

    Not much, to be honest. The only thing I would recommend looking up is just basic information on Stands and maybe some of the pseudo powers such as the ripple/hamon/the spin.

    Setting-wise, this will be a trainwreck of my own design.

    Giuseppe Gionata Zeppeli
    Age: 31
    Date of Birth: June 18, 2012
    Gender: Male
    Race/Ethnicity: Italian
    Place of Birth: Venice, Italy
    Weight/Height: 6'4", 215 lbs
    Personality: Greedy, intelligent, charming when he wants to be, and possessing great empathy for those suffering from sickness--especially chronic ones. However, when push comes to shove, he'll try to do the right thing... as he sees it.
    Likes: Money, mom, mom's spaghetti.
    Dislikes: People looking down on him, good people getting a raw deal, dying alone.
    Background: Born to a woman named Chiara Zeppeli, Guiseppe's early life was... tough. While his mother, bless her heart, did her best, Guiseppe was a sickly boy with a weak immune system, and often confined to his bed with some sickness or another.

    One day, the boy fell deathly ill, and no matter what the doctors did, his condition only seemed to worsen. Then, as he was on the cusp of death, a mysterious man appeared. This man claimed that, using an ancient martial art called 'The Purr', he could save Guiseppe's life. Desperate, his mother agreed to allow this man, Master Miao, work on her son.

    After a brief examination, Master Miao poked Guiseppe in various places of his body, sending warm, calming vibrations into him. For the first few hours, nothing seemed to happened, but then... a bizarre miracle! While he didn't regain consciousness quite yet, his temperature dropped, and his heart rate and breathing stabilized. His condition improved and, within a few days, he was almost good as new and awoke to his joyful mother.

    His mother asked Master Miao how she could repay him, and he asked for only one thing.

    "Allow me to teach the boy how to purr... he will need it in the future, one way or another."

    His mother was... confused, but given that Master Miao had just saved Guiseppe's life, she agree and, once her son was recovered enough, he left his life in Venice behind, beginning his journey with his new master, who would, over time, become the closest thing to a father that the boy had ever had.

    Master Miao was tough, but fair, and the training equally so. 'The Purr' was an ancient martial art that branched off from something called 'The Ripple' or 'Hamon', which used light rays to empower the user, while 'the Purr' used sound and vibrations to grant the user a number of amazing and bizarre abilities. However, while the Ripple had been used to fight... vampires, apparently, the Purr was meant to heal and encourage health in both oneself and others. It could be used to hurt and even kill, but that was certainly not its intended usage.

    After all, a cat striking out in anger certainly would not purr while doing so.

    Eventually, Guiseppe had learned all he could, and all that was left was to refine his Purr to the utmost. Without the guidance of his master, who had... other matters to attend to. Bidding each other farewell, Guiseppe began wandering the world, getting himself into and out of plenty of trouble... financing his travels by using The Purr to heal the sick. For a... modest fee, of course. A fee that was, of course, scaled to their ability to pay.

    Eventually, he found himself in Italy and decided to visit his beloved mother, whom he hadn't seen for over a decade. They'd exchanged letters when possible, but given his nomadic lifestyle, that wasn't a very reliable way to communicate. His last letter had apparently gotten lost in the mail, even!

    When he got to his house, what awaited him was not his mother's warm embrace, but... silence. The silence of the grave. You see, his last letter had not gotten lost in the mail--oh no, it had gotten to his mother... as she was on her deathbed. She had fallen ill some years ago and, not wanting to distract him from his training, despite knowing the healing abilities of the Purr, had hidden that fact from him. And then, shortly after his final letter, she'd died... alone.

    That hurt. It hurt more than he could possibly imagine. He raged, he screamed, he gnashed his teeth, cried... but he eventually accepted that she was gone. Even the Purr, potent as it was, couldn't bring the dead back to life. She wouldn't want him to dwell on it, in any case--nope, she'd want him to continue living his life as best as he could.

    While sorting through her belongings, a letter arrived, addressed to both her... and him. Apparently, his father, Johannes Joestar, had passed away, and he had been summoned to attend a reading of his will.

    His mother had only mentioned his birth father a few times. Always in terms that, in retrospect, made him think of a lovestruck teenager. Yeah, he sounded like he'd been a pretty awesome, interesting guy, but why in the hell hadn't he'd stayed!? If he had, his mother wouldn't have had to have died alone...

    Yeah, he was a bit angry... but not enough to just blow off the invitation. Once his mother's final affairs had been settled, he set off once again, heading to his 'father's' estate...

    Ultrasound - Basically what he uses to "diagnose" people. At 3 PER & MA, it allows for short-range echolocation, improving to medium-range at 4/4, and long-range at 5/5

    Sonic Healing - Not instant, just promotes faster, more effective healing & health. Guiseppe is almost always using it on himself, to boost/take the pressure off of his weak immune system.

    Counter Vibration - A more... offensive variation, though typically still used for healing. By figuring out the 'vibration' of a particular object or thing (or collection of things), the user can tune their Purr to affect only it, and to a greater effect. For example, fine-tuning it for a particular contagion (virus, bacteria, fungus, poison), material, individual.

    Sound Cancellation (Self) - More or less directly the result of Counter Vibrating the sounds he makes by moving. At his current level of mastery, he needs to focus (almost) exclusively on this to achieve silent movement, but a true master of the Purr can do this as a matter of course.

    Voice Control - More of a side-effect of his training than anything intentional. Simply the ability to adjust his voice to whatever he wants.

    Placeholder but for a character that will not actually make it into the game. I know my limits.

    Stand User
    Name: Dafydd "Dai" Pender
    Age: 23
    Date of Birth: 13th June 2020
    Gender: Male
    Race/Ethnicity: Welsh/Canadian
    Place of Birth: Paradise, Newfoundland
    Appearance: Tall, a bit beefy, massively out of control curly blonde hair. Dresses like it's the late sixties, so a bit of a fashion disaster but always has a smile on his face and his eye make-up is on point.



    Weight/Height: 6'4" 214 lbs
    Personality: Quintessential himbo; Kind, upbeat, loud and outgoing but not too smart. Dafydd is the kind of young man who is looking for a good time, some adventure and a little romance. Very musical in his interests and his personality, he tries to make friends everywhere he goes but this can lead to him getting into fights as some people find him a bit annoying. Very respectful of his elders with a small interest in history. Pansexual.
    Likes: Music, dancing, drinking and singing [therefore; karaoke] Sleeping in the day and going out at night. Old people. Drugs.
    Dislikes: Buzz killers, policemen, the English, mathematics, logic puzzles and deceptive people.
    Background: Born in Newfoundland to a single Welsh mother who had become marooned there after a worldwind romance, Dafydd has always wanted to go and see the United States. Working in a boatyard and playing open mic nights from an early age, he saved up enough money to first make sure his ma would be okay if he went a-wandering for a few years and then enough to get off the island and look after himself for at least a while. The money ran out quickly and he's been hitchhiking/drifting and sofa surfing for about two years now. He doesn't complain about it but he does miss his mother. In the meantime, he's been working in odd jobs, playing open mic nights, busking and generally partying to make his way. Despite his quite extensive time on the road, he's still a bit naive and just a small island boy who wants to have a laugh but eventually go home.
    Talent/Skills: Can play piano, guitar, flute and harmonica. Speaks Welsh, but often bemoans how useless that is in the States. Amateur carpenter and reasonable sailor.
    Other:

    Strength (STR): 02 (Lifting and striking power)
    Speed (SPD): 01 (Running and reflexes)
    Agility (AGI): 00 (Nimbliness and dexterity)
    Durability (DUR): 02 (Physical hardiness)
    Resistance (RST): 02 (Defense against illness and toxicity)
    Willpower (WIL): -01 (Mental defense)
    Perception (PER): -01 (Sharpness of senses)
    Martial Arts (ART): 00
    Skill (SKI): 01 Please list skill: Musical Ability

    NOTE: Players will start off with (6) points for their Stand Users. Each stat caps at 5 and upgrades will be rarer for users, so use them wisely. Players can also reduce a stat to -01 for a bonus point, but be aware of potential consequences.

    Stand
    Name: We Can Make The World Stop
    Appearance: A bronze metal sphere the size of a softball. It is a highly detailed model of the planet that is constantly slowly rotating.
    Stand Ability: Local gravity and momentum control.

    1) The Void - WCMTWS can nullify the momentum of any object or person in motion for one second within a three metre radius. Effected items in flight will drop naturally to the floor upon encountering the field. This can be targeted to a single object within three metres or in an AoE effect from the Stand's position for three metres. In both cases, the effect still only lasts for one second. Objects effected cannot be larger than Dafydd himself. Living beings/objects will take no intrinsic damage from the process of being stopped though the result of that stoppage can cause damage.

    The Void - Conditions/Drawbacks: To activate this ability, Dafydd must summon WCMTWS into his hand and grip it to stop the small bronze sphere from turning. He can only do this for one second whereupon his hand is repelled by the gravitational forces of the sphere.

    In AoE mode, only objects with a mass smaller than Dafydd himself will be effected, anything larger will not. In this mode, a car, for example will count as a single object.

    In targeted mode, Dafydd mentally designates the target, which must be within three metres of his person, therefore he can choose a specific part of a larger object. For example, he could designate the wheel of a car in this mode rather than having to consider the car one object or individual body parts of a person "foot," or "hand," etc.

    Dafydd must be able to see the object he's targeting in targeted mode.

    2) Never Let Me Go - Currently locked.

    3) Stomping Ground - Currently locked.

    Destructive Power (POW): 00 - N/A (A stand's strength and its ability's damage potential)
    Speed (SPD): 41 - A (SPD, AGI, and how quickly its abilities can activate)
    Range (RGE): 12 - D (The distance a stand can manifest from its user as well as the area of effect of its abilities)
    Persistence (PST): 41 - A (The length of time a stand's ability can be maintained and its recharge rate)
    Precision (PRC): 31 - B (The accuracy of a stand and its ability)

    Development Potential (PNT): 50 - B (The potential for a stand to develop new abilities, new ways of utilizing said abilities, and overall growth). Players can use stand points to subtract from this, with every 10 points removed granting a new ability

    NOTE: Players will start off with (125) stand points and (1) ability. Save for exceptions, all stats are currently capped at 50. Please include both letter rankings and points

    Stat Tiers/Rankings
    X.) Abnormal/Unknown (to current parameters): 51-Beyond
    A.) Excellent: 41-50
    B.) Good: 31-40
    C.) Average (comparable to human capabilities): 21-30
    D.) Weak: 11-20
    E.) Very Weak: 1-10
    0.) None: 0

    Question, do we have to be a stand user or could we specialise in Hamon or the Spin? Not saying I want to be just wanted to know what the options were.

    Actually, you can do exactly that. I've left two stat slots open (ART & SKI) for those who want the more "traditional(?)" powerset like Hamon.

    Could you explain how the Stand Development potential stat works? Is it included in the initial 125 Stand stat points, or are you giving us a pool of 50 to cash out at the time of character creation?

    You could consider Development Potential a separate stat category, not tied into the initial 125, but rather it's how you'll pay for additional stand abilities. Because every character will be a new stand user, all stands will have a Development Potential ranking of A, since it's measuring how much potential a stand has before being fully mastered.

    Instead of adding points to Potential to gain abilities, you'll instead be subtracting them from the 50 listed, lowering the grade which in turn means you're mastering use to use the stand.
