JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Star-cross Tour


A very special thanks to Turmenista for creating NationStates' first JoJo's Bizarre Adventure RP and for laying the groundwork for the OP. Also major thanks to Britanania for continuing the Jojo Dream

The Story Thus Far

In 1938 there was a man named Joah Joestar, who descended from the Joestar bloodline. Joah was a famous gangster in New York at the time, however his life was flipped upside down when his gang was destroyed by an extremist group that worshipped the mysterious Pillar Men. After having his gang destroyed, Joah traveled to Egypt to avenge his fallen gang members. Once there he encountered many allies and enemies. In the end, after killing Wayne, a very powerful Pillar Men Joah came face to face with the leader of the Pillar Men. Duran, had desired the Red Stone of Aja that Joah carried. After two encounters, Joah lost the Stone to the Pillar Man. Duran was able to use the stone to become the Ultimate Lifeform! Joah thought all was lost when facing Duran however, while fighting he was piecered by a Stand Arrow allowing him to gain the Stand Way Back Home. With this stand he was able to use Hamon through the Stand which stunned Duran. With this, he was able to use the Red Stone of Aja to blast Duran onto a German rocket however not before losing his right foot. The rocket then launched into the atmosphere and carried Duran into space where she continues to drift...

Following the Battle of Egypt, Joah returned to America where he would have a daughter named Holly Joestar. Holly would go on to marry a famous jazz musician from Japan and have one son named Jonasu. This is Jonasu's Bizarre Adventure...

The Premise

This is a Role Play based on the popular manga and anime series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Set in an alternate universe without any of the canon characters, our plot begins in 1983 in the United States of America. David Bowie, legendary rock star has begun the largest tour America has ever seen. They will start in Washington and tour all 50 states and even Newfoundland. However, random people have gone missing after the first stop. It's up to our protagonist Jonasu Kujo and his group of allies to solve this mystery while traveling with the tour. We start in Seattle, Washington.

The Main Concepts

The world of JoJo is, to put it simply, bizarre. With a multitude of supernatural forces operating, it can be quite mind boggling to think about it all. I'll take the time now to explain a few of the stranger concepts.

Stands:

Probably the most iconic and well known bizarre thing thing of our world (well, among this audience) are Stands. Stands are supernatural/psychic powers unique to a certain group of people. Typically ones stand manifests itself either when they're deemed worthy after being hit by a certain Arrow, or when the user goes into puberty. In the case of not being hit by the Arrow, its usually the latter.

Stands follow several rules, some of which are altered in this RP. For one, a stand is bound to its user as a physical manifestation of their willpower. That being said, they can only have one, and that one stand guards its user in various ways. Capable of being inherited, A Stand is part of its user, and damage is usually reflected between the two like a mirror (ex: cutting off stand's arm cuts off user's arm). Usually, Stands may only be seen by Stand users; the exception being Stands bound to physical objects. However, in our world, the user, with enough willpower, is capable of willing their stand to be able to be viewed by everyone with their own mental capabilities. A Stand can only be directly damaged by another Stand or by Hamon. A Stand's energy or power is inversely proportional to their operating range. The further a Stand is from its user, the weaker it becomes – Long-range Stands and/or Stands' long-range abilities are simpler in mechanism. Usually stands have a certain radius of operation they can be in before they will be unable to move past a certain point - some have even been capable of having more than 50 meters of range, while the stronger ones usually are limited to 10 or less meters.

After a Stand is defeated the user is either knocked unconscious or killed, depending on the level of injury.

Stands that also focus on melee combat can usually preform attack rushes - rapid punches or kicks alongside a signature stand cry.

Rules

  • The OP's word is law. That isn't to say that my mind can't be changed, of course.
  • Co-OPs are my eyes and ears when I am unavailable. Respect them as you would be
  • Absolutely no one liners. One liners are the death of RPs, and if you can't write AT LEAST three lines, wait until you can do so.
  • No godmodding, meta gaming, et cetera. If you don't know how a fight should end, plan it out ahead of time.
  • Have fun! This is a JoJo RP, after all. It's supposed to be fun, over the top, and kind of goofy.

It begins! One question, though. If I plan on having my character develop a stand later on, should I include it in the app? I'm debating whether or not he should start with it, and what powers it should have.

Yes, you should include it in the app even if the Stand hasn't developed yet.

No, go nuts.

Also I would prefer if not every character is in the band/opening act band. I would like to keep the band members to 3 or less. You can have characters who work with the band but most of the hero characters I would prefer to either be fans following the tour or people investigating the missing people.

Be prepared for a well-groomed man who always wears a tuxedo, even when it is covered in blood and guts. Also, how could I get a corp into the tour?

What's Pixiv? Image hosting service?

And I've got a good Stand idea I think. Enough to compete with wormholes, probably.

Also, what'a the story for Jonasu? I would like to have some historical collaboration with my Zeppeli and him.

I'm tging with Britania about a stand idea that I have, but they haven't tged me back yet. As of now, it's potential abilities involve disease.

Oh, I've fumbled around with a disease stand in my head before. Similar to Purple Haze from what I know about it but I haven't read Vento yet. The main thing was the Stand being able to inject a special pathogen (syringe-like fingers) into victims and control the virus that way, basically making it whatever disease from there.

Aw, man...

You can make a hero character who is in a band, but have it be the opening act band instead of Bowie's band.

Also Shark Isle, the corporation could easily be funding the tour. Selling merchandise, drinks, snacks, and marketing?
