Alright, so I'm still working on the backstory and whatnot of my Vampire Stand User, but I've got a rough draft of the Stand sheet ready. I'd rather not maintain radio silence until I complete the former, so here it is:

@ManyThings screw it. How do you feel about a little kid who isn’t aware of stands in general, but has an automatic stand that only works while he’s asleep?

Alright! Welcome, then. That character idea is interesting, but would limit your ability to make tactical decisions- a very important part of our fights. Perhaps the Stand itself has a mind and personality?

Stand Name: Enter Sandman

Power - B
Speed - B
Range - C
Durability - C
Precision - D
Potential - A

Description: Variable
Ability: Enter Sandman is a stand that can only manifest while its user is asleep. The user does not even know they are a stand user or that Enter Sandman exists. It acts as an automatic defense against any potential threats toward its user, attacking viciously like a guard dog. Its perception and reasoning as to what constitutes a “threat” however can be grossly misguided. Its form varies depending on what the user is dreaming of, usually some sort of fantasy or fairy tale creature befitting the imagination of a child.


The idea being that they would be a tagalong kid with a situational power that could be beneficial or detrimental depending on the situation. Also, the kid has narcolepsy.

Okay, I like it. I'd probably put together a random table or system based on the child's recent experiences to determine what form it takes each time. It doesn't quite have an 'ability' beyond its behaviour, but a dragon could breathe fire, a robot might have a radar, etc.

I'm still up for joining this RP, but would I be able to get some confirmation on whether there's space?

Yeah, you can fill the last space I'd say. 6 party members should be good, especially if one of them is a sleeping kid.

I'm not done with the CS, but I have filled in the stand section so you can give that a review.

edit: done!

One thing I'm noticing about this group so far is that there's not a lot of directly offensive/combat oriented abilities going on here. Two are straight up support-only no combat at all (seeing through eyes and communicating with the dead, no physical stand presence) one relies on the human-level swordsmanship of its user and can barely harm people/stands making it more utility, and the last is actually a traditional punchghost but with very low power, though a good debilitating effect. As it stands right now, the 8 year old narcoleptic is the most immediately dangerous/directly threatening one here. XD Not saying this is a bad trend, just one I wanted to point out. I can imagine the group dynamic becoming something along the lines of holding the line until the kid falls asleep, then just steering whatever nightmare monster emerges toward the enemy while trying not to get eaten themselves. XD

True enough. Seems like you'll have to put a little work in before you can ORA ORA.

Alright, I know I'm here a little bit late, but I did actually have an idea for a Stand that's caught my mind, semi-specifically based on how nobody here seems to be into that whole "fighting" thing. Would @ManyThings mind if I wrote up a sheet for potential future use? I don't mind if it never gets used here, I just want to get it down so that it's present.

Technically, the group also needs healing, I'm noticing. Arguably, this Stand would be capable of offering it. Depends on how Araki we want to go with a particular notion of its usage, is all.



I can't finish Phil himself off right now, but commentary on the power would be much appreciated.

It's powerful! It's a bit far off from the rest of the Stands in the group in terms of ability, but that doesn't make it bad necessarily. I suppose I'd want the effect to run out in a short while, and have a visual representation of the place it struck, like (part 6 Stand).

That seems like a reasonable assessment. I will make note that as a close-range power Stand in a group of largely support Stands, 「Ten Thousand Fists」 being immediately more devastating seems like it'd be a given, but I will add in those changes to balance it out, and probably make a note too that the effects would also dissipate if a target is a substantial distance away from the Stand, maybe ten or twenty meters.
