The endless expanse, littered by uncountable stars, is always so beautiful, and always so frightening.But today, it is also heartbreaking.The planet underneath you is now no more. The place where your Regiment, the 02nd Stella Platina Regiment 「Battlers」shed their last drops of sweat and tears, an endless wasteland of snow and frost...gone, just like that. The Regiment you had just started serving under, the Regiment you had just befriended. Just like that, gone. You wish you at least had a chance to remember the faces of several more of the fallen. The fact you cannot properly grieve gnaws at your very being.There is no time for grief, no time for respite, and neither was there time to hunt down that bastard Hayes and make him pay for the slaughter, for the Emperor himself had chosen you, not an Adeptus Astarters, or a Sororitas, or an Inquisitor...YOU, a lowly Guardsman, to carry out a mission of extreme importance. Still, your mind cannot help but wonder how an Exterminatus could have been carried out so quickly and on a single Commissar's word. It didn't make sense. And then there was this xenos witch...Macha, who claimed the Emperor himself sent her. A trick by one of the devious Eldar? Still, she too is a 「Stand User」... The mysteries pile one on top of the other, and you yearn for answers. And you silently vow you help the broken young girl, her body present but mind lost, to find answers as well, so that she may set her father's memory to rest. The good Colonel would not go unavenged. You feel you and Hayes' paths have not crossed for the last time. Your 「Stand」, the 「Emperor's Mission」, and the 「Exterminatus Order」...You cannot help but feel them all connected.You will find the truth behind that connection.You are Joachim Joestar, of the 「Last Battlers」.Today, you have lost much.But you still have friends, inner strength, and faith in the future.Come what may, you will keep advancing.
>>27651717Hey cool! Did we find out what our friends stands are?
>>27651717[STAND INFORMATION:WEATHER GIRLSUser: Farseer MachaStrength: DSpeed: DRange: InfiniteStaying: DPrecision: ALearning: B"Weather Girls" is a Remote Stand consisting of two different female humanoids with no legs, Bronze (left) and Silver (right) who instead float in place. Weather Girls is a rather slow Stand, but in theory, it can be controlled by its owner from a limitless distance away.SKILLS - Vision and Hearing: As with most humanoid stands, what Weather Girls see is seen by Macha herself. However, it is more akin to changing a video camera feed directly in front of her eyes and ears rather than having six pair of eyes working simultaneously. The "feed" can be changed for a single eye or ear, though, sacrificing depth perception or echolocation in both sides for simultaneous playback. It's Raining Men: Weather Girl's main ability. Anything that comes in contact with one of the two "girls" can be transported instantaneously to where the other "girl" is. This includes living organisms. NOTE: Weather Girls cannot phase through objects. So for example, in order to enter a Fortress-Monastery, it would have to find a proper entry point and not just ghost themselves inside. However, as with most Stands, they cannot be seen, and in most cases, felt, by normal people.]
Brief backtrack: Hayes was gonna EXTERMINATUS the planet, right? I was kinda wondering how he managed to pull that one. I mean, I was under the impression that the EXTERMINATUS was a method of last resort. Hayes wouldn't be able to get an EXTERMINATUS for one regiment of traitor Guardsmen.
[Hey guys, sorry for the wait. Work has me really busy and whatnot, but I definitely want to find as much time as possible to JoJo your socks off. I wanted to make a "chapter cover", even if as rudimentary as the one for the first chapter, but I didn't have the time.Regarding future threads...well, I threw together a really super shitty dinkypage link for you guys which contains the date for the next session, whether there's a session going on at the moment, the session link, links to the archive for the past threads, and a SOUL'd Out song in all of its weaboonese glory (still, I feel it fits the campaign lyrically. And I'm also biased due to those crazy awesome JoJo MADs.Needless to say, this is also a good place for newcomers to the thread to jump into, as they can access the old threads and check out the quest's dice system. Note to self: make that into a dedicated section.I'll probably refine the dinkypage into something decent sometime, but as I said, pretty short on time.Well, without further ado, we'll be starting shortly. Please stand by.]
[ >>27652169And I forget the damn link. Oops. >>27652005As Joachim's thoughts mention, it IS extremely fishy.The fact you're wondering how that happened just means you've been paying attention.Now anything else would be telling.]
So here you were. Inside a Xenos transport ship. From the looks of the location you were currently in (and with that, you mean a rather cramped yet pristinely white hallway), the ship itself isn't too large, but not small enough to prove extremely uncomfortable.Eldar design was definitely sleek and smooth, a sharp contrast with the Imperium's blocky, intimidating structures. To be quite honest, it reminded you just a bit of home in the sense that it looked "stylish", except Stella Platina made things a bit more colorful. This hallway felt sterile. "Xen...Macha.", you start. "Where are you taking us?" You ask the alien woman, the radiant hue of her crimson-orange hair adding some much-needed color to the barren locale."Well, I can't have you in this ship if you don't know anybody here or where things are located, can I?" she responded matter-of-factly. "It's only natural I'd introduce you to the crew.""Great. More pointy ears to look at.", Mercuria added sarcastically. Macha ignored her for the most part."This is not a large transport, so you should not have that much trouble navigating it."You are right behind Macha, and right in front of Rahman, Mercuria, and a downcast Zola who won't take her eyes off the ground. [NM 4]
Rolled 44>>27652477Be a gentleman and attempt to cheer up Zola. We cannot simply leave her in such a state.(btw, just read character creation, how does our nature affect rolls?)
>>27652524[Nature allows for easier Overpose (read: 90 or more needed for an Overpose effect rather than 100) for actions the QM considers Gentlemanly.Flaw makes it easier for a botch to register (10 or less rather than just 1) when doing an action that requires the heavy use of expression, like attempting to mediate a conflict between strangers, or convince an Inquisitor you are on a holy mission for the Emprah without he ramming your ass with a chainsword in less than 0.2 seconds.]

>>27653065 (Gentleman's Action)You slow down your pace in order to approach the youngest member of your current group, until you are walking side by side with her. "Zola, I...I'm sorry. If it wasn't for me..."Words escape you.Realization dawns upon you.It was your fault that the Commander, and the rest of the Regiment, had died.And to think the Commander would entrust the heritage of the esteemed Battlers regiment to someone like yourself.You'd feel disgusted in yourself..."Don't. Don't finish that sentence."...if it wasn't for Zola herself."Hayes killed my father. You did not put lasgun to his head. It was him, plain and simple."That's right. An evil man had done evil deeds. You could not bear the responsibility for his actions, even if they were caused tangentially by yourself. You were to fulfill the Emperor's Mandate. For that, there could be no room for either hesitation or self-pity.And, most importantly, you were a Joestar. Through your blood flows a noble intent. The Emperor would achieve that which he needs to do, and whatever that is, it is sure to be for the sake of the betterment of the Imperium."I always knew...he wouldn't come back home one day. I was lucky...since he was a Regimental Commander, he was often summoned back home...so unlike many others, I got to see my father fairly often. I wanted to follow in his footsteps, and I did. Even as his precious little daughter, whom he always said he wanted to protect from a life of strife and violence...as soon as I said I wanted to become part of the Imperial Guard, he accepted my will.""Zola...""And yet...." you can see the light gleam of teardrops on her obscured face, "I always thought...it'd be against an enemy of the Imperium. Not a SERVANT of the Imperium itself!"A few stiffled sobs, and an attempt to get the tears out of her eyes."That...pitiful excuse for a man, Hayes. The Emperor's justice will befall on his shoulders. The truth will be known."
Rolled 5Pose hatefully at the eldar?
>>27653605Quick on the trigger, anon. OP hasn't given us a NM yet, so he's not done posting.
>>27653656IT IS NEVER TO EARLY TO POSE HATEFULLY AT ELDAR
>>27653444"Yes, Zola. We will bring that man to justice. Once we perform the duty given to us by the Emperor...we will certainly, without a doubt, make him pay for his crimes.""Still...Fa...ther....will...never....be back...."Those words run like dagger through your chest."Thanks, Joachim. I'll....I'll manage. I am one of the Imperial Guard, after all. I...must make my father proud.You notice her fiddling with her father's...no, her sunglasses.You raise your gaze and look ahead, catching Farseer Macha, who was glancing at you. She quickly turns her head back forward.However...Even if it was just for a moment, you could register a human emotion. Empathy.Even if it's a xenos...Someone who makes a face like that for a total stranger......Cannot truly be a bad person, can they?A little while later, Macha does in fact speak up. "We're here. Through here's the bridge."You are standing in front the largest door you've seen thus far. What do you do?[NM 4]
>>27653694But it's Macha. If anything we should pose pityingly at her.

>>27653864Up to OP. I think last time he mixed the two together. I imagine in cases like these it more or less comes down to "what's best for the story?". We'll see.
Rolled 95>>27653702be a fucking gentlemen. Posing hatefully for no reason is being a shit head. Roleplay the character.
Thank God I have late class tomorrow. Drawing is really bad for my sense of time. Especially silly fanart of 4chan quests.Anyway, I'll be back later. Hopefully the thread will not be dead by then. More likely it will. I'll see you all next thread then!
>>27653756>>27653769[Dat coincidence]That's right! The fact was that despite their nature as "xenos", if the Emperor had seen them worthy of being given this role, then the Emperor must see some good in them! As a humble servant, you must lead the way!As the door opens, you take on a glorious pose, demonstrating your hateful disdain and contempt for their accursed condition, yet your unyielding determination to help them atone for the sin of their birth, which they have no fault on!You hate their tragic condition, not them!"Greetings, Eldar! I am Joachim Joestar, a servant of the Emperor in a most important mission!""I....Joachim Joestar....humbly request your aid!!"[AlivebySOUL'DOut.mp3 playing in the distance.Cue the silhouettes of the current party POSING MAGNIFICENTLY.]
>>27654126You notice that the bridge of this ship was surprisingly small, being manned by only five Eldar.Just one of them seems to look back at you, shrug, and continue his work.Yet, aside from the ones currently manning the controls, you notice a woman of relatively large stature standing a little under you. Rather than being either intimidated, insulted, or appalled by your aggressive, domineering pose. she looks at you with sparkling eyesYou've heard the rumors of fearsome female Eldar warriors, unstoppable forces in melee combat who can also use their voices as sound weapons.From the look of her getup, you'd imagine she's one of them.From how she's gawking at you with big, round eyes...yeah, you've got nothin'."Waaaaah....I've seen this before...done by those who follow a subset of the Path of the Artisan known as the 'Path of Posing'.

Rolled 90This thread will not die until it over.The first thread survive, today just a slow day.
>>27654808NOT TO MENTION WE CAN STILL POSE HATEFULY AT LESSER RACESpic related if we find a squat
>Oh hey, Jojo Guardsman Quest, let me read this thread->It's already over for the nightMotherfuck.
>>27652169Well since Araki did some cover art for one of SO's albums, had two characters named in refrence of them (Magenta Magenta and Wekapipo = Wake Up People) and had them do the theme song for the unreleased Phantom Blood movie, I'd say they're the closest thing Jojo has to an 'offical' band.Pic related, it's the album cover mentioned.
>>27655009There are those Diggy-MO MADs for parts 1-4 of the manga, too. You know the ones.
>>27655076Those are fan-done though, aren't they?I was only referring to actual interactions between SO and Araki, otherwise the argument for SO being the closest thing to an 'offical' Jojo band would be moot.
So this is based of of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, right? Should I watch it?
>>27655817Yes, watch the new animeThen read all of it ALL 25 YEARS WORTH OF ITBecause it's good
>>27655865That's what I'm doing. I'm up to Vento Aureo, because the one thing The Godfather was missing was more posing.
>>27655886Honestly, I thought Vento Aureo went downhill after the elevator ride/when Fugo leaves, everything felt poorly thought out, and with the exception of fight with Nero, it felt was less exciting.
>>27655009Why do their faces look like paul stanley?
>>27656034Because it's Bizarre.
>>27656026Vento Aureo as a whole isn't as good most of the other parts.
>>27656087paul stanley is bizarre?
>>27656115It's because they look like Killer Queen's face, and apparently Killer Queen looks like Paul Stanley
>>27656115Because the artist is the creator of Jojo's *Bizarre* Adventure and thus, "because it's bizarre" is a stock response.>>27656123Killer Queen has a cat theme going on, and the album the art is for is called "Catwalk."

>>27657593Pose like there is no tomorrow.
>>27654583 (Gentleman's Action)In Stella Platina, those who have the talent and drive to become artists, artisans, and musicians are highly valued and respected. Creating beauty from essentially nothing is, after all, truly one of the most impressive ways to revere the Emperor.And yet, the Eldar also have 'Artisans'. You never imagined that any of the xenos races could pursue beauty in such a noble manner."We are more alike than we may think," you start, "if your race has people in it that create splendid artworks! Truly, this is why the Emperor has brought us together! To solve our differences!"Some of the navigators mutter things like "Foolish Mon'Keigh..." and whatnot. Rahman, who is standing behind you, ponders lowly. "It seems that the line between heresy and sacred duty will be blurred for us in our mission..."On the other hand, the Banshee standing a bit below you has her eyes as wide as saucers, a toothy smile, and is absolutely beaming. Bringing her hands together, she does some little, silent claps."Bravo, Sir Joachim! You truly are an unique mon'keigh!"You seem to have impressed her, at least.[NM3]
I am grinning like an idiot OP. I fucking love this quest.
Rolled 31>>27657881A least attempt to smile back at her, then back to businessWe must discuss with Macha the nature of our alliance. I doubt she's willing to follow us unquestioningly
Rolled 91>>27657881Truly me should at least learn the name of one who appreciates our art and understanding.Then after I guess get general plan from Macha. Over some food maybe?
Rolled 68>>27657881Whisper to Akon, "Being friendly to these Eldar would help us in the short and long run. Just keep your eyes and ears open."

Rolled 36>>27657881Foolish is he who can not admire a beauty when he sees one.

>>27657994"Ahem! Fair lady of the Eldar, what is your name?" "Hailing from Craftworld Ulthwe, this fair lady known as Criehr is the only Howling Banshee currently serving Lady Macha! ....Okay, ex-Howling Banshee. I became an Artisan recently, but here I am! Hey, hey, can I call you JoJo? JoJo, you'd be a fantastic live model for my artwork!!"The 'Banshee' was...incredibly enthusiastic about it all. Deep down, you were perhaps thankful for that. It made you feel somewhat welcome.Wait, why would you want to feel welcome by xenos? You push the thought out of your head as soon as it finds itself there.[NM4]
Rolled 66>>27658115What kind of artwork?
Rolled 87>>27658129Posing for sculpture/drawing/painting most likely. Express interest but decline for your duty to the Emperor is more important
>>27658129Oh, forgot to add. JoJo is fine.
Rolled 94Of course!
>>27658172What a gentlemen.
>>27658172 (Gentlemanly Action)[God damn you guys with all this overposing, at this rate her kokoro is gonna go doki-doki for Joachim.]"Of course I'd be delighted to serve as a model for your art, Lady Criehr. I'm sure we'll have plenty of time for it during our voyage towards our next destination. However, for now, I'm afraid I must discuss our next course of action with Macha and my companions."Criehr was positively beaming. She walks past you, looking excited. "I'll be waiting, JoJo!" With that, she leaves through the door you just came through.Macha approaches you, arms crossed. "Well, that was awfully nice of you, Joestar. How come she gets called 'Lady' and I don't, though?"[NM3]

Rolled 65>>27658315But without attracting members of the opposite sex, how are we supposed to find the one who will carry on the precious Joestar bloodline? No, it is good to attract members of the opposite sex, for finding love is vital for a Joestar.
>>27658237>her kokoro is gonna go doki-doki for Joachim.
>>27658365Let's pray that when we get down to it we don't wind up Soft & Wet
>>27658288For some reason, you feel that answering that question directly would just invite calamity..."My Lady Macha! Let us discuss our next course of action!" You interrupt, taking a relaxed stance.She seems pleased enough at being called 'Lady'. "Yes...that would be wise. Golden Boy just told me to keep an eye on you guys and offer help if you needed it, but nothing else aside from that."[NM3]
Rolled 54>>27658404Actually start discussing next course of action
Rolled 85>>27658404Then lets gather the otgers up and get a plan going. The more heads we put together the better.I bet we and our squadmates could go for some food. Can't stratigize on an empty stomach
Rolled 99>>27658523>>27658404Building on this, strategize over a meal.
Rolled 66>>27658553MAXIMUM OVERPOSE
>>27658553"We should probably discuss this in detail, Lady Macha", you make emphasis on the 'Lady' part, "over a meal of some kind. No doubt my companions are starving for some nourishment.""I dunno the rest of you, but I AM pretty hungry", interjects Mercuria."Of course. This way, please."Macha leads you through some other hallways until finally you reach a small place that looks like some sort of cafeteria. The tables are the same pristine (although boring) white as the rest of the ship, as are the chairs.[NM3]
Rolled 10>>27658620Ask about the aesthetic choices and what they eat. We're going to be with them for a while, so it'd be better to get straight answers about this sort of stuff up front rather than rely on preconceptions or drawing our own conclusions.Then we really need to get with the strategizing and the eating and the destiny.
>>27658620Macha's probably still a little ticked at us; time to be a gentleman. Pull out her chair for her like the gentleman that you are, and wait for the rest of your companions to be seated before seating yourself.
Rolled 93>>27658687I'll back this
Rolled 74>>27658760Damn dice.
>>27658765>>27658687"So this whole ship...pure white, I must say, Lady Macha. How come it is so barren of color?""Well, the whole ship is made out of Wraithbone, which you may not know, but is the main building material we Eldar use. As for the color choices...well, there were none. No reason to decorate a transport that was meant for military usage on the inside."You nod your head as you take a seat on one of the Wraithbone chairs. "I see. And...regarding food...""All safe for Mon'Keigh consumption. You should be able to digest the vegetables and grains we use to elaborate our meals. We've already had a Mon'Keigh taste the dishes by this particular Cook before, so you should be entirely fine."[NM3]
Rolled 12>>27658864Strategizing, eating and destiny
Rolled 17>>27658864"There have been other mon'k- humans on board this ship in the past?"
Rolled 43>>27658864Ask if the xenos commonly has human guests on her ship. And then do the strategizing, the eating, and the destiny.
Rolled 54>>27658864So there have been others like us that have rode this vessel?Then grab food and begin discussion

Rolled 37>>27658966>>27658974I'm really sorry, okay. Especially because I don't know much about Warhammer in general. I just know (well, assume) the forces of Chaos take an antagonistic role.Also I supported those things.
i have no idea what we are suppose to strategize about.
>>27659058>[NM3]You were too late.
>>27659058You didn't make it in time.
Rolled 71>>27659058I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. Your post wasn't a /bad/ thing. /At all/.
So I wonder if we're gonna get a Mulan-style montage of Macha training the Last Battlers to use their Stands now...
>>27659122Most of the time people who get their stand from a stand arrow can use it at least decently right off the bat.The only exception I can think of is Koichi, and the only reason he couldn't is because he wasn't supposed to get a stand in the first place, and only survived the stand arrow due to Josuke
>>27658930"So, do you get several guests like us in your ship?" you ask Macha, the apparent leader of the forces stationed inside."To my knowledge...you are the first Mon'Keigh to ever ride in this ship. I just know of a Mon'Keigh who had eaten Trussardos' cooking several times in the past. That's all."You notice a forlorn look in her eyes, and don't know whether or not asking about that would be a good idea. Perhaps you should just get down to business? Or perhaps you should keep asking...or making small talk. You just don't know.[NM4]
>>27659170.....YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSMUTHAFUCKIN TONIO'S HERE

Rolled 11>>27659170Let's not confront these demons right now. Time to strategize. The Emperor gave us a mission, but we're still not quite clear /what/ that mission is. Let's pool our knowledge and see what we can come up with.>>27659182Tonio?

>>27659198Crap, is this a critfail since social situation/persuasion?
>>27659198 (Expression Botch)You ask Macha why she looks so sad, stumbling with your words as you attempt to do so."Know your place, Mon'Keigh. It's none of your business."Aside from the snappy comeback, she seems quite irritated.>>27659230"...I'm sorry", you say. "Let me tell you what the Emperor told us we needed to do. We have to get to Ultramar and find a 'wrongfully imprisioned' person there. The Emperor said they'd know what to do there."Macha puffs her cheek. "As always, Golden Boy has a gift for being vague. It's not like Ultramar is made up of SEVERAL PLANETS or anything.""This could be dangerous for everyone involved." adds Rahman. "Should they find an Eldar ship near the Ultima Segmentum...I'm afraid this small transport would meet its doom quite fast."Macha stands up. "I'll tell the navigation crew to get ready for Webway travel. We'll stay the safest and most concealed distance possible from your objective...I'll use Weather Girls to get you down to the planet. What planet, though...that's a bridge we'll have to cross when we come to it. Trussardos will be with you shortly. Enjoy your meal."With that, Macha leaves your sight. You are seated together with Mercuria, Rahman and Zola.[NM3]
Rolled 74>>27659367Check morale of group, ask what they think of the mission/what we should do next
Rolled 24>>27659367Ultramar has just one maximum security prison doesn't it?That would be a good place to startMeanwhile though, we should talk more with Mercuria, she's been on a hell of a ride of late, she may not be taking it as well as we are

Rolled 20>>27659367Combine these:>>27659395>>27659410
>>27659230So I was thinking about how the Emperor asked Macha for a favor. For some reason, I can only see the conversation happening one way.>Hey, hot stuff. What up?"Oh no. No no no. I told you to stop calling me!">Aw, c'mon, Machie..."Stop calling me Machie!">Alright, fine."Your next line is: 'hey, by the way, I need a favor.'">Hey, by the way, I need a favor. ...Damn it."Next, you'll say: 'Stop doing that, Machie.'">Stop doing that, Machie."Followed by: 'Okay, I get it, you can read me like a book.'">Okay, I get it, you can read me like a book."And then you'll say 'She sells seashells by the seashore.'">She sells seashells by the seashore. Oh, for the love of-"I'm not doing you any more favors, by the way, Golden Boy.">And if I was to ask nicely?"I would be very surprised.">Good point. And what if I was to say that I need you to help out a man by the name of 'Joestar'?"...I'm listening."
Do we really need to specifically state we're posing? I assume it's just kinda the default state for most impressive or dramatic actions of a JoJo.
>>27659395"Are you guys all right?" you ask the rest of the Last Battlers. "How are you feeling?""Never would I have thought we'd start the day fighting Orks and end it with making an alliance with a Xeno witch!" responds Mercuria. "JoJo, wherever you go, something crazy is bound to happen, isn't it?""Indeed, this is an unforeseen situation. However, I must say Joachim, I could see the Farseer's stand a lot more clearly than when I saw yours for the first time.""That's because this pendant I carry seems to 'grant' Stands to whomever cuts themselves with it, so long as they are compatible." you say.Zola raises her gaze at you. "...Why can't I use it?"Your expression softens. "Zola...the Emperor told me than if you come in contact with the Pendant, you'd be killed by it."She turns her gaze downwards and nods. "If such is his will.""So this means we're getting Stands of our own? I don't feel any different." Mercuria adds."I'm not quite too sure," you respond, "but I could not use my Stand immediately. Maybe everyone needs a different time to be able to use theirs?"Mercuria crosses her arms behind her head, leans back and looks at the ceiling. "Just as long as it's there when I need it, I'm fine with it."You hear footsteps. An Eldar male with a strange hat approaches you. "Esteemed gourmands!", he starts, "I will be your cook today. May I know what you would like me to prepare for you as a meal?"
Rolled 50>>27659710Time to open up our culinary palettes. Let's try the finest example of Eldar cuisine available.(I'd request a HAM sandwich but all Elf food is likely rabbit-safe...)
>>27659710[Forgot NM. NM3]
Rolled 83>>27659710Order something suitably jojo-ish. I can't remember anything off the top of my head other than how many breads you have eaten.
Rolled 77>>27659710"Whatever is your specialty."
>>27659758"Sir cook! Bring us your most fabulous dishes!"The cook smiles at your enthusiasm."Yes, sir! I will bring you the most spectacular pasta you've ever had!"You wonder for a moment if this Eldar is psychic. You love pasta! You just never expected to find it here. "Ooh, that sounds good!" adds Mercuria."I'm looking forward to it.", says Rahman"...that's sounds fine.", finishes Zola."Sir", the cook, whom you assume to be Trussardos, speaks. "would you like a cup of recaf with that?"[NM3]
Rolled 22>>27659743Spaghetti ala Nero.
Rolled 12>>27659901"Please. Black."
Rolled 40>>27659901>>27659904EVERYTHING MUST BE BLACK
Rolled 11>>27659901OF COURSE!
>>27659901Did we accidentally manage to convert an Eldar to being an artisan path through the sheer fabulousness of our poses earlier? Also yes to the coffee. On the plus side we'll be cured of pretty much all our ailments. On the downside we will creep out the other party members while doing so. Also just couple of questions:Is part of spacemarine initiation to stab them with an Arrow?If an Eldar switches paths do their stands change as well to match their new path?
>>27659963Tonio takes your order and, before leaving, speaks. "Something I was told once was that what people it is a 'reflection' of that which they consider 'beautiful'. Could it be perhaps, then, esteemed gourmand, that you find the 'black' of space beautiful?"To tell the truth, he hit the spot...however, what you truly love about space is the stars.The stars you've always wanted to reach, so bright, and so beautiful, and also so terrifying."Forgive me, I spoke too much. I will be back with your order shortly." And he is. Soon, you are eating the best Pasta a la Nero you've ever had (and you've had a looooot of pasta in your life). For some reason, you feel your vitality coming back to you by eating this delicious meal.Soon enough, you're done eating. You and your friends thank Trussardos for the meal before leaving.Now what do you do?[NM5]
>>27660099[Speehs Murheens don't get stabbed with the arrow, otherwise they'd be able to use Stands.Eldar Stands stay the same even after changing paths. The explanation for that will come later.]
Rolled 71>>27660108...What, no crazy side effects? Lame.Go find Macha! Ask her why she keeps on calling the God-Emperor 'Golden Boy'!
Rolled 86>>27660108We should try to narrow down where our prisoner-in-distress is in Ultramar. Perhaps see if there's any rumors or news of a recent high-profile arrest?
>>27660122I was thinking that since we haven't seen any space marines and their horrendously low survival rate on recruitment the emperor might've possibly given out arrows to be used on candidates.
>>27660159Is the Arrow even still around? Artifacts get lost or destroyed all the time.
>>27660134[Trussardos doesn't have a Stand...yet. Or maybe he'll never have one?>>27660159The creation of Space Marines is related to 'something else'. Any more and it'd be spoiling.>>27660191Well, you ARE carrying the remains of one on you.]
>>27660191We have one of them and it was made from the remains of an asteroid. By 40k who's to say that the Emperor hasn't instituted a policy of locating and mining those types of asteroids for valuable resources. What's really interesting is wondering where Cars wound up.
>>27660217Remains of one, yeah. But is the complete Arrow still around, is what I meant.>>27660228Hm, good point about the possibility of more asteroids of the same type...
>>27660236The Arrows were made from a meteorite, right?Maybe somebody's found more such chunks of magic space rock elsewhere in the galaxy.
Rolled 96>>27660108Ask Macha how she had encounter The Emperor and why she called him [Golden Boy]She can't be older than the emperor.
>>27660236It's not just one Arrow there were six of them.
Rolled 14>>27660108Does anyone else here hate Chaos? Man, those guys suck.
>>27660156This. In general, do some fact finding while we're here.
Rolled 67>>27660354wrong field
>>27660108[Gonna reduce NM to 3 due to thread speed.]>>27660266It doesn't take you long to once again locate the Farseer, for she is standing right outside of the door to the bridge."Lady Macha, I had a few questions I wanted to ask you.""Go ahead, Mon'Keigh. I got some time.""How did you encounter the Emperor?""Well," she starts, "I was drawn to a planet looking for information on a certain someone, and I found a tower similar to the one you were in a few hours ago. I got cut with something sharp, and I faint right then and there. Finally, when I wake up, Golden Boy's standing right there."You nod. So apparently, they met when Macha obtained her Stand. "So...why do you call him Golden Boy?""...Have you SEEN his armor? I just gave him a nickname because he's not my Emperor, and he wouldn't give me another name to call him with. 'Emperor of Mankind' is too much of a mouthful, anyways."You wonder why exactly Macha agreed to help you, if she doesn't venerate the Emperor. Still, there might be more important things to discuss first.[NM3]
Rolled 29>>27660379Can you be more specific on how you got cut?
Rolled 95>>27660379Inquire about how much longer until we reach planetfall and if she will be aiding us after delivering us there.
Rolled 37>>27660424Gotta agree with this
Rolled 6>>27660379Ask Macha if Stands are more common among Eldar than Humans. Also inquire if there are other xeno races with them.Because I don't think I can handle the idea of Stand-using tyranid.
Rolled 2>>27660379Who were the person you were looking information for and why you call me and the others Mon'Keigh? I don't have to call you Elders or Xenos since we know each other names.
>>27660468We've seen gorillas, dogs, photographs, and plants with stands. I'm sure tyranids could handle it.
>>27660492Well shit, good thing that was a NM3
>>27660468It would probably be limited to the central portions of the hive minds if they do. Admittedly the Stand itself would probably be something along the lines of Harvest, Ratt or Foo Fighters in that it is one stand with many bodies.
>>27660424"How long until we reach our destination, Lady Macha?""We haven't gone into the Webway yet...but as soon as we do, we will be there shortly. We're using the Webway to arrive at the frontier of Ultima Segmentum, hide our transport behind some space debris, and then deploy my 'Weather Girls', which I will be using to take you to the planetary surface. Our voyage should not take more than two to three days.""I see...""As for aiding you...don't you think having an Eldar walking around the home of the Ultramarines would not be a terrific idea? I won't go with you directly, but one of my Weather Girls will follow you around. I'll be your entry and exit point, and communicate with you over my Stand. That sounds good to you?"[NM3. Last Roll for today, I gotta get going to work.]
Rolled 99>>27660544Tell her it sounds good, then ask her of she knows of any other Xeno races with Stands.
Rolled 29>>27660544Sure, sounds good. So about that cut...
Rolled 97>>27660563Yeah this. The necrons are probably the only race without stands though.
>>27660563Dayum these rolls!Also, supporting this one.
>>27660563"I do not know of any other Stand Users other than you and me. Golden Boy mentioned Stand users being extremely, extremely rare..but I don't see any reason why only Eldar and Mon'Keigh would be the only ones to be able to use Stands."Satisfied, you nod your head."I'll show you your resting quarters, follow me."[TO BE CONTINUED.If this thread is alive by the time I get back from work (9:30 CST), I could QM the quest for three hours or so; that way we could cover what JoJo and the party do on transit. It's not something worth making a new thread for, though.If the thread is dead by then, though, I'll just make a new one on Friday, 10 PM CST as I was already planning to.Make sure to check the dinkypage for any updates, and if possible, keep this thread alive you guys.]
I'm going to eventually expect to meet a Blood Raven that has a stand called 「Steal Rain」
Goddammit, I pop in last night to find the thread over, then I wake up to find the thread over.Fuck!
Rolled 77Quick wonder about how Weather Girls works. Their speed is D...which means that sending them long distances will be a hassle. Do they have the ability to warp to each other, or back to Macha, at will?Also will macha be able to communicate with the party through her Weather Girls?
>>27660688Your second question was already explicitly answered.
>>27660696Ah, missed that. First question still remains.
>>27660688Actually, speed usually refers to combat speed, pretty much all Stand users are able to see through their stands, with the exception of Polnareff (He trades ESP for armour), and Automatic Stands. Some non-humanoid Stands would also probably be in here, like Metallica, otherwise Risotto would just be seeing a view of his bloodstream non-stop.If anything the vision this is probably instantaious.
>>27660731Wait, nevermind, I misread your question, I thought you meant to ask how fast they sent messages. Yeah it'd probably take awhile, but since they're invincible, they can just stow away on imprerial vehicles without anyone being the wiser.
>>27660706[The Weather Girls can teleport wherever the other 'girl' is located. However, due to the nature of the Stand, they would not be able to go back to where they just teleported from if not manually traveling. Weather Girls is useful for recon and instantaneous transportation from point A to B anywhere in the Universe, but its main weakness is its slow speed, which means getting one of them to point 'B' in the first place will take some time. On the other hand, "Speech" and "Vision" through Weather Girls is real-time. No delays due to distance.]
>>27660751Exactly what I was wondering, thanks.
>>27660751[For the record, they are about as fast at moving as a Segway...if a Segway floated. Dunno if that makes sense.]
>>27660783So then wouldn't it take a very long time for one of them to make it from where we come out of the webway to the planet to teleport us there?
>>27660817[It'd be about a day's time from where the ship comes out to the planet's surface. That's slow in Stand terms, though.]
>>27660817They're invisible, they can stow away on pretty much any craft without being noticed, due to the nature of being a Stand.
>>27660849[Keep in mind you'll come out pretty far from them planets in order to stay concealed and not eat lasers, though.]
Weather Girls really is a support stand, huh.Makes me want to try and play them in combat so that they're actually quite dangerous. Just need to figure out the best way of abusing that teleport...
>>27660952telefraging bitches to the middle of a star.Hey, they don't need to become solid to use their abilities. The heat, pressure and gravity of a star will not affect the stand.
>>27660994Yeah but they can only do that once (I think?) and then they have to Segway-float back to Macha.
>>27660683I wish we gain [Hunger] and [Dark Will].Also, For Jochim, all the stars in the nightly sky...what does [Stars] means to him? What is the [Meaning] of [Stars] to him?
>>27661005Fine, Telefrag into space or to a nearby moon.
>>27661019http://www.crunchyroll.ca/gurren-lagann/episode-27-the-lights-in-the-sky-are-stars-628021All off the lights in the sky are stars, huh...
>>27661031Or just telefrag 10 km up. Voila, terminal velocity.
After much consideration (and a quick breather to do an assignment) it might be better for Macha to keep Weather Girls around and abuse their teleporting powers for positioning and escape to support her own (considerable) powers as a Farseer. If there were some way to increase their speed, a /lot/ of badass would suddenly become available; judging from what I've been reading here, though, that probably isn't an option.
I negate the descent down pages with my stand.
>>27663849Bumping with some WIP. This one is gonna be a doozy.
>>27664267That'll be fukkin saved worthy.
>>27664267[ So I get a break at work and I come to dat WIP.Life is great.I get out of work at 9 and it's currently 6:30, so I'm pretty sure we'll have shenanigans involving a Banshee-turned-artisan tonight.]
>>27664947Keep on going with the good fight.
>>27664947Aaaaaand done. This one was fun to do!
>>27665507Now you only got to color it.BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA
>>27665507That's pretty good! I like the hand holding, lewd but Macha's face seems just a bit off.
>>27665507What's the work time on this?
>>27665653Nah, her face looks like a pretty standard Jojo face.
>>27665653I'm more concerned by the fact that her left arm looks like it might have a second elbow joint...that said (and aside), the picture looks awesome!
>>27665624HahahahahahahaNoSomeone else color it.>>27665653I was going for JoJo face instead of uguu.>>27665687Approximately 2 hours with slight breaks.>>27665737I think it was the stylized glove button things I put on it. May have fucked up the arm design.
>>27666135The Jojo face clashes with the face tattoos.
Guys I just realized something: Tazeem the infinite (that is the time traveling 'cron lord right?) is obviously the big bad. He doesn't actually achieve time travel through tech he simply has a stand that allows it. And since that would give him a time manipulating stand that obviously proves that he is the big bad.
[Got out of work. Heading home. GET READY!!]
>>27667651Time for more hateful posing
>>27667686Why do I have a feeling Revolver Ocelot's lag name is Pucci now? Also can anyone recommend a good site to watch the anime off of?
>>27667849Forgive my /a/, but>Streaming
>>27667849You might want to look into downloading/torrenting. With streaming, the video quality isn't as good.
>>27667581Too bad I'm going to sleep now. I guess I'll have to settle for reading it in the morning.
>>27668037Man it's like the exact opposite for me, I've missed this thread both last night and today, I'm glad I finally get to actually participate tonight.
[Sorry I took so long to get home, guys. There was a situation just as I was leaving work.Okay, gonna resume in just a bit. Prepare yourselves.]
>>27665507God damn I was doing almost the exact same thing but not nearly that awesome. Time to tossa way that sketch...
>>27668570Don't. Post it nao.
>>27668570No. No! NO!You WILL finish that sketch and you WILL make it fabulous. When you are done, you WILL put it on here and OVERPOSE with unyielding pride in your work!
>>27668603Ahahahahano. Not until I put a little more work into it. Weather Girls isn't even in it yet.I think I'll need to start over, though. JSCervini's piece has made me realize that my Macha was not posing nearly FABULOUS enough.
Voodoo Kingdom > Bloody Stream > Sono Chi no Sadame
Your sleeping quarters were surprisingly normal.You were expecting room to look...well, alien, but it was just like what you'd expect to find in an Imperial room: two bunk beds, a small nightstand, a desk with a chair, and even a bathroom with a shower cubicle attached. You'd be sharing one bunk with Rahman for the remainder of the trip while Zola and Mercuria bunked together. Fair enough.You remove your helmet and unlatch your flak jacket, leaving them on top of the topmost bunk. Unzipping your Imperial Uniform, you also remove your belt, stripping it of grenades, and putting it together in a chest with the rest of the weaponry your friends carried.Once that was done, you were definitely a lot more comfortable. Of course, you wouldn't just leave your scarf and pendant, so you kept those. This ship was chilly enough so that the scarf did not get too hot, anyways.You are the last to leave the room Farseer Macha has given you. You now have a pretty good idea of how to get around the ship without getting lost. What do you do?[NM 6]
Rolled 47>>27668871Create a shrine to the emperor all places must know his light
Rolled 70>>27668871We must reflect on our SORROW.By POSING.
Rolled 39>>27668871I do believe we promised a certain ex-Farseer that we would do some modeling work for her.Time to POSE for ART, gents.
>>27668941[Ex-Banshee. Keep in mind that Banshees are physical fighters while Farseers are, well, Farseers.]
>>27668932>>27668941I have a feeling we can combine these
Rolled 56>>27668871Look at the stars, all the lights in the night are...
Rolled 77>>27668871Find fan-girl artisan farseer. We promised to model for her.This will end in heresy.Sweet, sweet heresy.
Rolled 70>>27668871Time to go do our posing for Lady Criehr
>>27668871Supporting this combination, >>27668967. Let's make a tribute to Zola's fallen father.
>>27669028What shall we call it
>>27669066Conception of Jotaro
Rolled 68>>27669058Lamenting Hero Under the Stars
Rolled 76>>27669111No, man.Jolofn.
Rolled 38>>27669111Rolling for this
Rolled 5>>27669180But Jotaro was Zola's father's name and we need to incorporate him into it.
>>27669150Damn, I was working up something around "A Father's Strength" but I couldn't reach that level of JoJo. Then I saw yours and it is JoJo. And it's perfect. Well done.
>>27669231I wasn't talking about the title of the artwork. I was... you know what? I should probably just go to bed. Like right now. Before I make an even bigger idiot of myself.
>>27669289I know I was just messing with ya.
>>27669011You decide to ask around for Lady Criehr. Most of the crew is not exactly happy to see you, and some downright ignore you.Until you find yourself again in the Cafeteria. Trussardos is there, sipping on a cup of what appears to be a cup of Recaf."Ah, Gourmand! Are you looking for someone?""I made a promise to meet up with Lady Criehr. I was wondering if you'd know where she is?""Indeed! She is at the inner deck. She sometimes goes to draw there.""Perfect. I was looking for her because of that same reason."Trussardos nods in acknowledgement, and goes back to drinking his beverage. You head towards the Inner Deck. In the way, you pass Macha, and both of you curtly nod in greeting. You walk a few steps forward, and feels eyes on your back. You turn back, and see Macha is still there, frozen in place, looking at you. From this distance, you cannot make out her expression.What do you do?[NM 5Also, Feelgood, remember these: "Song of Kiss" and "Song of Boston".]
Rolled 52>>27669408What is wrong Lady Macha?
Rolled 17>>27669408We Pose. Posing makes everyone feel better.
Rolled 12>>27669408If the incredibly attra- I mean, HEATHEN XENOS WITCH wants to stare at us, let her. There's no need to act; meet her gaze calmly and coolly and wait for her to explain things. If she wants to, of course.
Rolled 59>>27669408Pose with concerned grace "Lady Macha, what ails thee?"
Rolled 78>>27669455...Or not.>>27669473I fear we must COMBINE our forces for a MAGNIFICENT POSE, sir.
Rolled 80>>27669408Ask her why she's following us.>Also, Feelgood, remember these: "Song of Kiss" and "Song of Boston".Wha?
>>27669494Whoops. Ignore those dice.
Rolled 19>>27669408Do what is happening in this image
>>27669503[It will make sense in due time. Just tossing that out there]"Lady Macha...is there a reason you're following me?" You ask, trying your best to sound concerned rather than upset."......That, on the nape of your neck. Is that a star?"[NM3]
Rolled 18>>27669559Of course it is.POSE
Rolled 85>>27669559Why yes it is
>>27669559'All the members of the Joestar bloodline have it, it's been traced backed to Saint Jonathan.'
Rolled 87>>27669559Yes, all of the line Joestar bare the mark of Saint Jonathan Joestar!
Rolled 94>>27669559Self-exposit about the [Star-Shaped Birthmark]. Instinctively touch it with your left hand as you do so.
Rolled 18>>27669559"No, it's a five-pointed shape that LOOKS like a star."
>>27669559Speaking about the Star-Shaped Birthmark, I was really pleased to find it in the anime. Like a retroactive shoutout or something.
>>27669604"Yes, indeed, it is a Star-Shaped Birthmark. It is the sign of the Joestar bloodline, and can be traced back to Saint Jonathan, the patron saint of my home, Stella Platina.""...A birthmark, huh."She looks somewhat forlorn, somewhat melancholic, and somewhat nostalgic.[NM3]
Rolled 51>>27669689"He was my grandfather."
Rolled 23>>27669689Propose that we can share the Joestar line with her line.
Rolled 64>>27669689Care you explain your woes, oh maiden?*POSE*
Rolled 66>>27669689"...I am...sorry for you're loss. It seems I am not the first to bear the mark that you have known?"
You know, you just have to wonder how Joachim looks to other people who've never met him. A gentlemanly, emotionless guy who has a pose for literally everything he does. Washing the dishes? There's a pose for that. Taking out the trash? There's a pose for that? Burning heretics? There's THREE poses for that.
>>27669715"Maiden Macha...care to explain the woes that afflict you?" You say, as you unconsciously switch your posture to face her."....It's alright." she looks down. "It's just that...after we rescue that person we're supposed to...care to follow us around for just a bit more?"[NM3]
Rolled 31>>27669826"I can make no promises. The Emperor's work is never done."
Rolled 5>>27669826"In all honesty, should the Emperor will me to not, I shall regret it."*POSE*
Rolled 64>>27669826Perhaps a day ago we would have declared our LOYALTY TO THE EMPRAH would require us to burn the xenos; but things have changed. Today, our GENTLEMANLINESS wins out, requiring that we assist all maidens whenever possible.
Rolled 73>>27669826I see no reason not to, unless the Emperor decrees that we pursue a different course.
Rolled 42>>27669826"By the Emperor's will...well, I would not mind."
>>27669888Well, this is going to hurt.
>>27669948I don't.../think/ this qualifies under the UNDERPOSE rules, but I dunno, we'll see what OP does.
>>27669888"In all honesty, should the Emperor will me not to...I would not mind!"You give her a winning smile. Except, well, your winning smiles look a bit forced, what with your countenance usually being rather serious."S-STUPID MON'KEIGH! I-I DID NOT MEAN ANYTHING WITH THAT!" Her face is as red as her hair...With a huff, she spins on her heel and leaves. ...That could have gone better.[NM4]
Rolled 63>>27669974...I sense that I missed something. OP, you should get a Pastebin with the rules. All the COOL QMs are doing it. >>27670028...Pose sorrowfully?
>>27670028I see our POSES have managed to have an effect on Macha as well...we might have to tone them down in the future if every female reacts this way...Anyway, facepalm at our failure. Then go back to finding that Artisan.
Rolled 71>>27670028Vow to apoligize to her laterProceed to hopefully pose better for the artist girl
>>27670028Oh you ain't gonna stay a virgin girl
Rolled 78>>27670028>>27670101what he said
Rolled 61>>27670085DAMN these dice.
Rolled 83>>27670028Work on the next JoJeneration with the Artisan
>>27670186>>27670186But that is heresy anon
>>27670186Nice Jojob with that pun there.
Rolled 79>>27670201The Emperor Wills it

Rolled 96>>27670618? Joestars don't have sex. They POSE mutually with their partners and their progeny are condensed from the resulting FABULOSITY.

>>27670101"...That could have gone better."You seriously wonder what you did wrong.Well, no time like the present. A gentleman always keeps his promise, after all. And for now, you've promised to pose for the Artisan. As soon as you arrive at the inner deck, you see her sitting on the floor, her back against a nearby wall. She wore a long flowing dress that was decorated with Eldar sigils and jewelry."JoJo! You came!""Of course. I promised, didn't I?" You respond."A true gentleman!" She adds.[NM4]
Rolled 69>>27670758Where's the first Jo?

Rolled 62>>27670779"What sort of poses would you like from me?"
Rolled 80>>27670800I only have one question for you before we continue this quest...How do you like your steak?
Rolled 55>>27670883Actually sir, I am vegan
>>27670858we better not have to bend over
>>27670858Now, now. Aren't we doing a tribute to Zola's Father first? This is a special request from us to honor a fallen ally after all.
>>27670883With blood in it
>>27670909That;s why it should be Conception of Jotaro!
Rolled 56>>27670896...I think you should leave. This quest is obviously not for you. You are sad, and I've no desire to speak with you further.
SO it turns out this thread is archivedbut due to tags it is cut off from the rest of the questmeaning OP Joey JoJo should link to it at the start of the next threadjust to make sure no one misses it
>>27670839"That is what I strive to be, Lady Criehr!" You respond."Amazing! Such a lofty goal! You are an unique mon'keigh, just like him! Oh, I am so glad to get you as a model for my art!"[NM4]
Rolled 2>>27671013Pose in a mournful manner
Rolled 94>>27671013"Him?"Oh god emperor she had a fling with grandpa, didn't she.

Rolled 47>>27671013Begin posingAsk about him as we do
Rolled 42>>27671058>>27671068well, uh, that's something
>>27671068does this cancel out this>>27671058?
Rolled 72>>27671013Pose artistically for her, ask about Macha.
Rolled 63>>27671068Man it's always awkward when you start crushing on the hot nigh-immortal space-elf and it turns out she had a thing with your grandfather.And his grandfather.And possibly your great-grandmother as well.
>>27671130Pretty sure we still just failed. Thankfully we are failing dialogue and not the actual pose though.
Quick update from OP: 4chan can be a capricious gal at times.http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/7928/906.png
OP wants to reply to the last NM so I'll be giving his answer by proxy, but after that the thread's gonna be on hold until another day, likely Friday.>>27652233Refer to this post for the tracker page. Updates will go there.
>>27671358Oh prophet, tell our lord and maker that he has our deepest condolences
>>27671279well okay, did they seriously ban him for posting an IMAGE, not an actual hyperlink, but an IMAGE of a link?I didn't realize /tg/ mods were this, uh, "fastidious" in their moderation
>>27671406The Great OP replies!>>27671068"Him? You ask.""Oh, of course, you wouldn't know. It wasn't too long ago, actually, but under Farseer Macha's sister, Farseer Taldeer, I served in a planet called Lorn V. We fought alongside the Imperial Guard for a little bit, but...well, it completely changed my worldview. And he, well, he's basically the reason I left the Path of the Warrior to pursue the Path of the Artisan. But that's a story for another day, JoJo."She gives you a warm smile as she raises her pad and the inmaculately white pencil."Did you know? These pages and this pencil are made of Wraithbone as well. Wraithbone is so versatile..."Before you know it, Criehr is sketching furiously on her notepad. The minutes drag on, but quickly enough, she has a drawing of you done, and shows it to you.It is quite masterful. You would probably frame it if you could."You should get some rest, JoJo. You have a lot of work ahead of you, don't you?"You nod. Bidding each other farewell, you head towards your room. In this strange, alien ship, with an ever stranger and more alien crew, you finally close your eyes after the longest day of your life.Developing a Stand.A mission for the Emperor.The death of your Regiment.An alliance with the Xeno....Befriending the Xeno.Things were never going to be the same again. [Hey fellas, sorry I got banned so stupidly. Next time I'll justuse pastebin like everyone else.Still, keep an eye on the dinkypage, as I schedule the next time I can set up a thread there yo.]
>>27671563OP also says he tried to post the actual link. 'Twas an autoban.
