Welcome! This is...

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Cloudy Red Lights




You could be flying nearly anywhere. Out of the US, into the US, within the US, the destination matters to you, of course, but not to 'Super Classic'. This is nothing but a brief stopover, and so you're not remotely aware of where this strange little town called Super Classic is situated- somewhere between where you started and where you're going, and in America, presumably. The most you can see through the terminal windows is the runway. All you have to do is get off the first plane, wait a few hours, and then get on the new one that'll take you the rest of the way to your destination.

It's easy.

Isn't it?

It ought to be.

It would be bizarre if it were not.

@Lord Orgasmo Your character and Stand are good. I'd like to see some more under personality, but I'm willing to accept the character and let you feel him out more in game. @ me if you do add anything, or put him in CHAR otherwise.

@knifeman Nice one! That A range might be a few hundred meters, but he certainly can't reach the eyes in his city from this strange airport. Since its function is just based on the drawing and it ends when that drawing is broken, its durability should be Null. Kris may also suffer a bit more if an eye is destroyed while he's looking through it. With that in mind, your character is accepted!

@ProPro Great character- we just have to work out what exactly he's doing flying around. Since the narcolepsy is out of his control, I'll take care of triggering it via some dice rolls or when it seems to be appropriate.

(Keeping in mind that the range stats for long distance/automatic stands do not operate under the same principles as close range power stands)


You mean in the sense that those types tend towards the higher end of those ranges, right? Enter Sandman can probably make it a good 10~12 meters from Oberon with a range of C.

Aside from that, I'd say the Power, Speed, and Durability should be a bit variable. They're fine the way they are now, but considering it could become anything from a frail fairy to a terrible dragon, it might be more appropriate as something like "D~A" or similar. I'd let you know what you got each time it took form, and Oberon reading any specific storybooks before falling asleep would very much affect what it ends up as.

I’d really rather it not be determined by GM discretion or random die rolls. Also it still has the same stats regardless of what form it shifts into, with maybe little variations within the same grade scale. It’s the same power wearing a different skin, so to speak.

Hm, that's fine. As long as the form makes sense, more or less.

The narcolepsy is a different matter, since it's not really something convenient at all.

Nothing about the character is convenient. While awake he’s useless in a stand battle, or most situations. While asleep his stand is as likely to attack friends as it is foes. He’s designed to be challenging to play and interact with intentionally. Taking away my control over when he’s in which state is literally taking away the only control I have outside of specifically how ES tries to wreck everyone’s day. At that point you may as well make him a NPC and cut out the middle man.

Do you really feel that way? You'd have control over what he does while he's awake.

I've never entrusted a player with something like control over their own medical conditions. Where do we draw the line between this and just falling asleep and waking up whenever it's tactically convenient?

Yes I feel that way. Why would I bring it up if I didn’t? Sure I’d still control his voice and actions awake, but those would be incredibly minor in the grand scheme of things, and as stated before basically inconsequential to the actual meat of the game: stand battles. As for controlling when he falls asleep and wakes up, those are decisions to be made based on narrative structure, not tactical convenience. If you feel you can’t trust me to play my character fairly, then fine. You ultimately decide what you do and do not want in the game that you run. But just tell me that so I know whether or not to skedadle on out.

Based on past experiences, I don't make a habit of giving players control over things their characters don't control. If it's really make-or-break for you then I'm willing to give your judgement a test drive in this game, but if I find it's being used too conveniently we'll revisit that decision.

@Aviaire Joy is good! Accepted! Put her in the CHAR tab if you're up for playing.

@MadManMoon@ItMeGritty You two are still welcome!

@knifeman@Aviaire@Lord Orgasmo Looks like we'll be starting off with a party of three. Hopefully more characters follow.

Get ready for a 1st little IC post to set the scene, and then you guys can get down to business!

@Vulkan Nice! Apply a character and Stand sometime.

Meanwhile I take it @ProPro didn't like my style and headed out. Sorry to bother you if you had already put this game behind you, but proper confirmation would be great.

@Aviaire@knifeman@Lord Orgasmo Here we go. Start your characters off wherever you prefer- getting off the newest plane, in a waiting area, or at a shop or something. Don't be afraid to just bump into each other! Stand users are drawn together by fate, after all.
