New York, 1999: the turn of the millennium in the greatest city of the world. Sure, it's a big city and things are rowdier than usual, but you consider it home. As a student at Linden High School, you try your best to focus on your studies and struggle to find a way to pass your classes. Other than the stray shooting or the common street fight, things seem... normal, for the most part. There isn't much to focus on other than yourself; your job, your family, your friends, and what you're going to be to doing on New Year's Eve, which is about three months away. Despite things being same-old same-old, you feel like this year is going to be different, somehow.
It's only October and things have already become strange. You've heard strange murmurs in the school halls, in the shadows of the back alleys, bodegas, and even at the arcades. A shadowy figure has made contact with specific youths through the screen of their computer screens and televisions. People say that it's just a prank. Police say that it's the work of a hacker. No one knows much about the mysterious figure, though it's on the rage at Linden High School. You feel like your year is about to take a sudden turn for the bizarre...
Our characters will be students at Linden High School. It is currently Friday, October 15th, 1999, which means that it is roughly the beginning of the school year. For now, their worries revolve around passing their classes, graduating, surviving in the big city, and so forth. They may know one another, but at the same time, they might only be classmates. Though, while they may be students, their lives are going to change throughout the span of the roleplay. Yes, they will get Stands, one way or another. Maybe they were born with the ability, or maybe they gain it through the plot. Either way, our characters will be very, very inexperienced with their newfound powers, and will definitely run into both good and bad guys at certain points in time. There will be many chances for downtime between characters as this is a roleplay that will have a focus on slice of life aspects, but remember this: our characters will be put on a mission. Some, if not all, of them will die for the greater good. At least, we can only hope so.
Please note that this is a 18+, high-casual/semi-advanced roleplay. While I don't expect novels for posts, I would like for you to please take your time creating your characters and writing your posts. We all make mistakes, and that's fine, but if your post gives me a headache to read, then that'll be an issue.
Do not ghost us. If you need to step away from the RP, please let me know.
I will listen to people's suggestions and ideas for plot development and etc. However, my final decision is law.
Carefully think about your character when creating them and their Stands. Not everyone will be accepted. I will only pick six people from the number that have proclaimed interest. This means that think about gender, type of personalities, and such when creating the character. As for Stands, try to focus on making them creative and fun to play with, not something game-breakingly OP or edgy. Currently, we have a Jojo, Brando, and Zeppeli in the works. Despite their names, they will not be the main characters of the roleplay; everyone will have the chance to be in the spotlight.
This RP is anime-only friendly! No need to worry about being out of the loop!
DO NOT COPY STAND NAMES/ABILITIES OF ALREADY PREXISTING STANDS. There's bound to be some overlap with abilities, but I don't want a carbon copy of Star Platinum or The World.
DO NOT WRITE YOUR CHARACTER'S STAND INFORMATION ON YOUR SHEET. Even though there is a field for such information, that is to be used later on. Instead, PM me the information instead. If it's acceptable, I will let you know when you can reveal the full specifics of your Stand. This is to promote suspense/curiosity/mystery when it comes to each character.
Once the OOC goes up, I will create a discord and PM the invite link to those who have already proclaimed interest. Please be active on the discord, as that is the easiest way for most people to get in touch with one another.
I don't want you guys to constantly pump out posts. Thus, we will be running on a semi-cyclic posting schedule. This means you should try to wait for everyone to post first before typing another post. If the person we're waiting for doesn't post in a week or so, then we may move on.
I get that we're all busy at times, but I would love it if players post once or twice a week.
I am a fun-loving person. I love it when we talk about things on Discord and make fun of characters, create ships, theories, and relationships. Don't hesitate to reach out to me for anything you need!
