[ Rules: http://pastebin.com/ygvwRe7w , includes link to archive].You and your entourage decide to follow Mira. You've definitely caught her eye, what with challenging an Ultramarine to arm wrestling (and surviving with your limb mostly intact), but most importantly, because you're here for the same person.She leads you out of the city, into the camp east from your initial location. Within the largest tent, she begins explaining how she knew Captain Titus, how she and her regiment owe their lives to him, and how she was promoted to the rank of Major after the campaign in Graia."The 203rd was in shambles, but still combat-capable" she says. "High Command decided to promote me and have me handle the Regiment's functions while they attached a Colonel to it."So it seems these Guardsmen were friends of Captain Titus, at least. Might be the best people to ask about his current whereabouts.Before you can pop the question, though, Rahman approaches you and asks for a word in private."Joachim. The Guardsmen I overheard regarding Captain Titus' situation? They were a detachment from the 203rd."Grim realization sets on your eyes. "So they too were...""...Set to the torch by the Exterminatus. Yes."There comes a point where you stop believing in coincidences, and that point has been reached. There are way too many links here to ignore.「203rd」. 「Battlers」. 「Captain Titus」. 「Accusations of Heresy」. 「Exterminatus」. There was a mystery in the making. That much you knew. Whatever it was, it was something incredibly sinister. And now you know that unveiling whatever it is....is what the Emperor wants of you.You return to the tent with Rahman. >Ask Mira more about Captain Titus.>Ask Mira why is the 203rd in Parmeno.>Tell Mira about the fate of her men in Carillion. >Other (Write)[NM4]

Reposting our Stand's Stats.[LOW RIDER]Destructive Power: B - Obviously superhuman, I wouldn't be suprised if we could throw small vehiclese, probably not strong enough to chuck roadrollers or minarets at people, though.Speed: A - Near lightspeed to FTLRange: E (2m)Durability: C - Rougly on par with The World, don't take too many punches from an A ranked Destructive Stand.Precision: B - Not good enough to preform brain surgery with our Stand's bare fingers, but still superhumanly accurate. Our stand can flick stones/bullets to a range of 75-100m (Josuke almost hit a *rat* behind cover at 60m.)Development Potential: A - Adaptable as fuck, Koichi was able to evolve his stand into alternate forms via Acts, and Gionro constantly pulled new abilities out of his ass.Summary, not the most conventionally powerful, but adaptable and versatile as fuck.

Rolled 75>>Ask Mira more about Captain Titus.The more we can find out about our target, the better.
>>27740876You decide to ask Major Nero about the man you were sent here to seek, or at least whom you suspect to be your target. Still, it was a good time as any to turn that 99% certainty into a 100%."Captain Titus," the commissioned officer begins, "is the reason I, and in fact, all of the Cadian 203rd draws breath today. If it wasn't for him, Forge World Graia would have fallen to the Orks, or even worse, to the Forces of Chaos.""Chaos?!" Mercuria interrupts abruptly, startled by the Major's previous assertion. "Miranda, have you fought the Forces of Chaos before?!""Yes, and the reason I can tell the tale is because of the good Captain's valiant efforts."Whomever this Captain Titus was, he must be a singular individual of inmense power and skill. To lead an assault against Chaos and come out on top...that's what would earn a man hero's honors, not shame and guilt!!You decide to ask the reason for such injustice bluntly. "Major Nero...why was Captain Titus apprehended after such woundrous deeds?"Mira sighs, bringing her closed fist to her temple. "It was that Leandros' fault. He told the Inquisition that the Captain was corrupted by Chaos' taint. Nothing but lies and slander from a blind, close-minded apprentice who will never achieve anything like the Captain's greatness.">Ask about Titus' current whereabouts.>Ask about the 203rd's presence in Parmeno.>Ask about Mira herself.>Ask about Leandros.>Tell Mira about the fate of her men.>Other (Write).[NM5]

Right, you were getting a bit sidetracked. "In any case, I wished to know what the Inquisition has done with the good Captain.""Joachim." Her expression becomes stern, serious, and a little pained. "I cannot divulge that information lest it is to those who are within my regiment."So she knew somwething, but she could't tell you for some reason. Damn.She shakes her head and exhales deeply. "...There is a way, though. I could treat you as honorary members of the 203rd. From my understanding, your Regiment's main force was reinforced by a detachment of my men, correct? It would not be a problem to treat you as an extension of the 203rd Cadian Regiment, so long as you agree to keep the same secrets we have to."Secrets? This gets more and more interesting by the minute."I do not know why you and your friends are separated from your Regiment, or even how you got here." The Major crosses her arms in front of herself.

>>27742964Grappling hook could be ridiculously useful with our domino effect.
>>27743484This is a very good observation.
Rolled 20>>27743484Definitely, considering Low Rider's effective range is as low as it is...and that's on top of the /normal/ crazy that a grappling hook can do.Still, we need a gift for the Major. Search deeper in the store. Maybe we'll find something surprising...
I'm not sure we should really get a gift for the Major. It's a weird direction to go in, and kind of in really bad taste?"Yeah, it sucks that your men were all murdered. Here, have a shiny new pistol."Or some gadget or flowers or whatever. Just seems weird to me.
Rolled 22>>27743687A simple laspistol can go a long way to symbolize our allegiance to her leadership and the vow to use this weapon to punish those who would harm the innocent and oppress the just
Rolled 5>>27743725^ This
Rolled 11>>27742964Talk to the owner, ask what could be a good gift for the Major.
>>27742964>Other(Write)Ask if they carry any purity seals, I think that would be a fitting present.
>>27743843Considering we're trying to help one prisoned for acting the will of the emperor, I believe a purity seal would have apt symbolism to it.
Rolled 85>>27743843>>27743875We're getting a present for Maj Mira, not Capt Titus. We need to cheer her up and rekindle her engine for righteous fury after that huge bungle up
>Grappling hookLow Rider can control friction right? Couldn't we mess with friction to stick to walls and Spider-man our way up?
>>27743959Point's not that; point is, if we can connect to our target with the hook, we can affect friction on it over a distance.
We could go with the old fashioned route and just get her alcohol.
>>27743978Yeah, this is very potent. In Jojo, one of the key things in battle is the effective range of your Stand, powerful types tend to have very short ranges, while long range Stands tend to be very weak.A grappling hook can give our Stand an effective range of around C-B, combine that with our ability to remove friction on our shoes, and that can allow us to kite melee Stands, and rapidly close in on ranged ones.
>>27744274Not to mention that if we remove all friction, we can use that hook to propel us to relatively high speeds.
So get grappling hook if we can't find a proper gift?

A confident smirk finds its way to her face. "I'm about to open a can of whoop-ass on all of you!""Hey, we ain't going to be lettin' no girl get the best of us!" One of the lads steps up to the plate. Folding his sleeve upwards, his natural weapon is soon primed and ready.Just as soon, he gets schooled. Hard."Whoah, that chick is packin' muscle in those slender arms of her!""Thank ya, thank ya boys. I'll be here all week. Now who's next?"Criehr walks closer to the spectacle. "Ooooh! I'd like to try as well!""Wow!""What a total babe!""Marry me!"Criehr just giggles as she takes a seat where Mercuria just was. "Don't hit on me, silly boys! You might end up getting hit back hard~"Are your eyes deceiving you? Is the Guardsman/PDF lot...pushing each other down and using all sorts of physical punishment in order to be the one who gets to challenge Criehr?...No, you must be seeing things. There's no way something that cartoony could happen, right?An angular-faced Guardsman (with a purple eye, even) is the one that steps out of the crowd (or whirlwind of dueling bodies, same difference), planting his elbow firmly on the table. "I'll take you on, miss."The duel of strength starts simple enough. Neither of the competitors seem to have the upper hand. However, you soon notice this is not the case. Where the Guardsman seems to be exerting all of his strength, Criehr seems perfectly serene.Their arms have not moved a millimeter from the position they began in.(cont.)
>>27749251"Mister, a contest like this is not about brute strength." Criehr lectures. Her arm starts moving, and bending her opponent's in an oppressive arc. "It's about finesse, and knowing what and how to use your muscles to win.With those words, it was all over. Criehr had won."Wow, this girls are awesome!""Hey ladies, let us buy you some drinks!"While Criehr curtly refuses the offer, Mercuria is a lot more enthusiastic. "Hell yeah! I sure could use some booze!"A few minutes later, and Mercuria is chugging down her fourth bottle of Amasec."Pwah!" she loudly exhales, as she finishes the bottle. "Now...dis JoJo right here..." she says, pointing at you."Yes, that's me." "...shuu fink dat ahm restling an Ahstahrtes was nawts? Guy rahn ovaa an Owk Wahbawss wif a Kimerah.

"Y-yeah, I guess you could say I 'drove' it into him..."Before you know it, you're getting pats on your back and several of the Guardsmen and PDF (Mercuria included) a bit on the inebriated site chant in unison "JOJO!

>>27749508One of the more sober Guardsmen wistfully gazes into his mug. "Ya know, that reminds me of this friend of mine, no longer with us, lost his life in Lorn V, Emperor bless his soul. Rumor has it that during a temporary alliance with the Eldar there, he and one of those xenos got rather 'friendly'."This story had definitely caught the attention of some of the drunks. "Rahlly? Whut ya mean?""Well, this guy, he didn't really want to be a full-time Guardsman. Had artistic aspirations, that one, but he still gets shipped off to fight for the Emperor like all of us. He carried a sketchbook everywhere he went, and tried to draw whatever caught his eye at the moment. Turns out a Commissar found his drawings, and several of them were of a certain xenos. A little asking around from the Commissar, and soon enough..." his fingers splay apart, mimicking an explosion. "Blam. Bolt Pistol round applied directly to the forehead. Poor man's head was blown cleanly to bits."One of the drunks chuckles loudly. "Ah gess yah cah sah dat xenos blew hish mahnd!" More uncontrollable laughter from the not-sober. But on the corner of your eye, you notice something. Criehr's expression has darkened considerably, and she has stopped chatting with the Guardsmen sitting next to her.She stands up. "I must excuse myself." she says shakily. "I'm suddenly feeling unwell. I will see you later."And with that, she leaves the tavern.>Go after Criehr, see what's wrong.>Get information out of the drunk Guardsmen.>Ask Yuu'yan about Criehr.>Get Mercuria and leave the premises.>Other (Write)[NM 5]

I must say Gyro was kind of a bad character I mean seriously he's the sort of guy who's solution to every problem is to whip out his balls and hit people with them.

For those of you who haven't caught on. The reason Crierh's so upset? The guardsman they were just talking about was the one who inspired her to become an Artisan. She was the 'certain xenos' that he had been drawing, which brought about his death.Also, AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICED THAT SHE HAS A STAND NOW?!WHEN SHE 'ACCIDENTALLY' TRIPPED, SHE 'ACCIDENTALLY' CUT HERSELF ON OUR PENDANT.

Ever.You step out and sweep the area, looking for any signs of Criehr. After a little while, you find her on a small, deserted alleyway between two buildings, leaning against one, her whole body shaking tremendously, and her hand covering the sounds that were coming out of her mouth.She was crying."Criehr..." you call out lamely."...D-did you figure it out, JoJo?" she responds in between sobs and hiccups.

>>27750255He was a Guardsman.Do not cry, he died with you in his thoughts. He died knowing that he had done his best to capture what he knows as perfection.He did not die of Orks, tearing his limbs from his bodies.He did not die, full of terror, against the Necrons.He did not die, consumed by Chaos.He did not die, flesh torn from his bones by the Tyranids.Yes, he did die, but he died loving you. He died content, knowing that his fate was sealed the first moment he laid eyes on you, content that he got more than a single outline of you in his sketchbook.
>>27750295Slowly, softly, you wrap your arms around her back, giving her a comforting embrace.She wails, and she howls, like the Banshee she once was, but this was not a battle cry, no, this yell carried no wish to harm. It was simply filled with anguish. Her body gives in, and her legs buckle. As she slides down the wall, you follow her descent, and end up kneeling next to her. "It's okay...let it all out."All that pent-up sorrow fuels her tears, and she cries and cries, and cries, and cries for what feels like an eternity. All you can do right now is give her this support."I SAW HIM!" she cries out. "I SAW HIS HEADLESS CORPSE! THEY PUT IT THERE FOR ME TO SEE! WHY DID THEY HAVE TO DO THAT TO HIM?!

Our lives belong to the Emperor, and we accept that fate. We accept 'death'. 'Dying' is what we Guardsmen do best. When we die, we die standing. We die fighting.

I'm certain, that if he became close to you, he believed in 'peace'. He believed in your 'bonds'. He knew his fate was sealed, but...he would still swim against the current of the turbulent river that is 'hatred'."You point at the sky, your eyes never breaking contact with hers. "I'm certain, Criehr. He died content, because he died for 'loving' someone in this universe fueled by 'hate'. I'm certain! He thought his death a small price for getting to meet you!

Do not resist."Defiantly, Mira shakes with fury. "Wh-what the hell is going on here?!" Each word drips with hatred and vitriol."Oh, just a group of Guardsmen sent by your Emperor himself to rescue the same person you're trying to save getting a terrible welcome by their would-be allies, and a friendly neighborhood Farseer stepping in so that you don't do something you regret. Wait. Don't say it...next you're gonna say 'Curse your lies...Xenos Witch!', right?""Curse your lies...Xenos Witch!" Mira utters through her teeth. "...Wait...What?!""Now, now, Mira." Macha mutters mockingly. "If their intentions were truly that sinister, don't you think they could have killed all of you already? Because this fight seemed pretty one-sided from here.""Vile Xenos...Don't you know where you are? I'LL HAVE YOU PURGED BY HOLY FIRE!!""Oooooooh?" Macha raised an eyebrow, further taunting the Major. "So what are you going to do? Call that Inquisition you Mon'Keigh were plotting against? I'm certain they'd love to hear this..."On her free hand, Macha holds a thin, rectangular device. She pushes into it, and sound fills the tent. "...I know it. You know of our intentions to rescue Captain Titus from his fate. So now, I'll give you one chance..."Mira's eyes widens as she shakes even more furiously."So go ahead! Call the Inquisition, or the Marines! We'll both go down in flames. Now, I'm pretty sure you don't care if you die...but if you do, won't the Captain's chance at living die with you, too?"Mira cannot take it anymore, and falls to her knees. Her eyes are hollow and distant. Her will has been shattered.(cont.)
>>27752868"JoJo." Macha now turns to speak to you, withdrawing her weapon. "You really have to be more careful. Not everybody is going to believe in your good intentions, even if you share the same noble goals." She tosses the rectangular device to you, which you promptly catch. "Here, collateral. Also proof that what I do on the other end is not just simply slack off. Later." "Thanks, Macha." is all you can respond."....JoJo?" She turns towards you once more.

The "Right Hand Gemstones" are embedded unto an object (this does not harm the object) in order to 'select' them. The "Left Hand Gemstones", in the same order, are instead used to establish 'distance'.Any object embedded with a 'Right Hand Gemstone' will have a fully functional copy appear where the 'Left Hand Gemstone' equivalent is located, and will imitate the actions of its original. For example, by embedding a 'Right Hand Gemstone' on a 'Heavy Bolter', and setting its 'Left Hand Gemstone' seven meters to the right, another, identical 'Heavy Bolter' will appear on the location where the 'Left Hand Gemstone' was left, and will move in the exact same ways as the original object will. So if somebody is operating the 'Heavy Bolter' and aims it a little to the left, the 'copy' will also move a little to the left, even if nobody is using it. When the 'original' fires, the 'copy' fires.]

>>27753232[*More than one set of gemstones can be used for the same object.*Every time a gemstone is removed from the Stand's hands, that hand's "Strength" parameter goes down for one Rank in regards to direct combat. So by using all the Gemstones at the same time, the Stand's Strength Parameter goes from 'A' to 'E'].
>>27753265[The effect does not work vice-versa. Only the original object has those effects on the 'copies' So if you try to move one of several copies, this will not affect the others. If someone tries to move the original, though, this movement will be emulated by all the copies.This Stand is a bit difficult to explain, so if you got any questions, go ahead and ask]
Rolled 19>>27753232....copy a foe, fuck him up 7 ways to Sunday...or punch with rest, retreat and use left to torture or to kill or even to talk to...but once it copy, there no going back.
Rolled 30>>27753232>twin-linking all of the weaponsand that's just the beginning
>>27753297[Also, there is an arbitrary size limit to objects Ruby Tuesday can copy. Some objects can be copied in their entirety by using more than one gemstone.>>27753322Would not work, as any 'effect' applied on the 'copies' will not affect anything but 'itself', but any effect applied on the 'original' will affect all copies']
>>27753322I don't think it works like that
Rolled 14>>27753297Oh....but this means infinite grenades and ammo. Even infinite money.Use original to copy, use the copy object, never use the original.
>>27753373[You're limited to four gemstones, so a maximum of 4 copies of one single object. Ruby Tuesday can recall those gemstones, but once she does, the copy disappears.Of course, it would work for that grenade trick you just mentioned.]
[Also, my fellows, I hope you enjoyed today's session, but that's it for me tonight.Gotta see if I can program some assignment crap in Java and actually catch some z's after I'm done. Lates.]
Rolled 13>>27753408Or money to scam people or ammo once it used...copy gun, use copy gun, get gem back, redo.
>>27753232Whats the * next to the A for?
>>27753453[Just one last thing, though.What might be more important in a hypothetical situation? A copy of an object, or a decrease in the Strength Rank?>>27753477see the second part of >>27753268 ]
>>27753495If we place a gemstone on an enemy's face, would we make a copy of his face? And then we can punch the copy. Which would also punch his real face.
>>27753533[You could make a copy of his face or body, what you copy depends on Mercuria's will. However, punching the copy will cause no damage to the original. Just the copy.See: >>27753358]
>>27753495Actually, since Ruby Newsday's stat's are pretty terrible for a melee Stand, I'd be more willing than usual to sacrifice it's strength for utility. It'll be good against conventional troops due to its intangiblity, but against proper melee stands in a fight, it'll lose horribly.Here's an ability comparison[RUBY TUESDAY]STRENGTH: A* - At peak strength, it can shatter boulders, punch a hole through someone's torso with ease, throw chunks of buildings at someone, or even industrial vehicles like road rollers.SPEED: C - Not that much greater than a human being, considering that Stands can approach hypersonic to realativistic speeds at B and A ranks respectively, it'll be horribly slow against Stands that specialise in punching.RANGE: D - about 5m~ish.Precision: B - Not good enough to preform brain surgery with our Stand's bare fingers, but still superhumanly accurate. Our stand can flick stones/bullets to a range of 75-100m (Josuke almost hit a *rat* behind cover at 60m.)STAYING: D - Pretty fragile, relegate to support duties.LEARNING: D - Not much room for improvement, sadly.I'm actually shocked, since her alternate couterpart Hermes, had a Stand (KISS) Stat spread equal to Part 3's Star Platinum at AAACA. (Kiss swaps Star Platinum's Range with Percision.)

[Damn, glad to see this thread still lives.]We'll continue where we left off tonight if this thread lasts till then. Don't think it'd be a good idea to make a new thread tonight, since my schedule for today and tomorrow's pretty bad.]
