[ Rules: http://pastebin.com/ygvwRe7w , includes link to archive]A family reunion unfolded before you, within the confines of this Stand, 'Burning Down the House'.Husband and wife, the latter thought dead by many, were finally together once again. Daughter and mother held each other tight.The sister squeezed your arm tight with her hand, and you could feel her silent glee. The brother was dumbfounded, but not unwelcoming of this development. Maybe he has learned a valuable lesson today: in this grim days where there seems to only be war, there can also be 'pure-hearted hope'.The man who identified as the 'Emperor's Ally', Emporio Alniño, guided you through winding corridors deeper into the complex, until...You find yourself in what you assume to be a 'town', its architecture rustic and nowhere near as packed as the hive you lived in.It reminded you of what you've heard regarding Agro Worlds, and yet the architecture, while feeling strangely familiar, was also unlike anything you'd imagine to see in the Imperium...and you could not quite place your finger as to why.You notice a few people walking on the distance...wait, what?! Why are there people here?"Friends," Emporio speaks. "welcome to the sanctuary that provides respite from the cruelty of the galaxy. Welcome to 「Phantom Morioh」.">Ask about 'Morioh'.>Ask about 'Burning Down the House'.>(LIVII)Ask about Taldeer and her stay here.>Ask about the people living here.>Ask more about Emporio.[NM 6]

Reposting Stand abilities and analysis.[LOW RIDER]Destructive Power: B - Obviously superhuman, I wouldn't be suprised if we could throw small vehicles, 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.ABILITIES:Touch and Go: Any "object" that comes into contact with one of Low Rider's limbs can have its "coefficient of friction" with all objects changed at will.Domino Theory: Low Rider's "Touch and Go" can affect any object at a distance so long as there is a "path of objects" for T&G to follow.
>>28012082[STAND NAME: FirestarterUser: Rahman AkonDestructive Power: B - Obviously superhuman, has the capability to cause significant damage, this doesn't mean the Stand itself is physically strong, as its fire abilities could be the source of the destructive power.SPEED: B - Hypersonic, many times faster than the speed of sound, but nowhere near the speed of light. will scoff at traditional firearms. (roughly mach 15)RANGE: E - 2mPRECISION: C - Not significantly more accurate than a human, might have issues with friendly fire in the most literal sense.STAYING: C - Rougly on par with The World, don't take too many punches from an A ranked Destructive Stand.LEARNING: B - Good capability for improvement, I guess. Most stands that manifest new abilties have A ranked Development.Abilities:Manhattan Transfer - Firestarter's main ability. It can exchange the 'heat' between two different objects as desired by one of two methods:1. Direct Contact (either with Stand or User)2. Using the "Laser Beacon" on its belt, as specified within the "Targeting" ability.
>>28012082[For the record: turns out my only day off is not going to be so off, as a professor wanted to have a class during it, so...I'll post the description of the newer Stands during the morning before said class, and will continue the thread once I get home.]
>>28012110[RUBY TUESDAY -USER: Mercuria CostelloSTRENGTH: A* - Can easily punch holes through someone's torso, drop industrial vehicles on them, shatter boulders, or throwing chunks of vehicles at them. At this rank, can probably be used for anti vehicle duty.SPEED: C - Roughly comparable to a normal human, considering faster Stands can move many times faster than sound, is almost completely usessly is melee fight against another stand.RANGE: D - about 5mPRECISION: 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 - Has issues with durability, being used for long periods of time, or using the powers too often.LEARNING: D - Ability to improve and evolve is almost nil.ABILITIES -Shine Bright (Like a Diamond): Ruby Tuesday has gemstones where her knuckles should go, in the following order, starting from the index finger's knuckle: Ruby (R), Emerald (E), Sapphire (S), and Topaz (T) (REST). 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'.
>>28012140[STAND NAME: AusterlitzUser: Criehr AlthareenDestructive Power: E - Much weaker than a human, don't rely on for power.Speed: E - Very slow, especially compared to other stands.Range: A - Exceeding Hundreds of metres, maximum range is unknownPrecision: E - very clumsy or impreciseStaying: A - Have significant durability, against damage, usage or both. User damage transferred from the Stand is likely to be significantly reduced, or even ignored completely.Development Potential: C - Chances are slim for improvement.Austerlitz takes the shape of a simple sketchbook and pencil.ABILITIES:Fact || Fiction - Anything drawn by the user of Austerlitz within the 'sketchbook' can become a 'tridimensional illusion' which looks absolutely identical to what the real article would be. These illusions, however, are absolutely static; they do not move or have the intrinsic physical properties of the real article (for example, were one to draw 'fire', one would not feel the heat). The illusions, however, do have visual depth. The trigger for activating this ability is 'ripping off' the page from the 'sketchbook', although this might just be psychological in nature. The illusions are, additionally, completely intangible, albeit the user can manipulate the elements of the illusion as they see fit, similar to an actual object, for the sake of position displacement (like when the user held the 'Tequila Bottle').Fiction || Fact - Should anybody attack one of the Austerlitz with 'an intention to harm' whatever is depicted by it, the damage will appear as if it is done to the 'illusion' (should the illusion of a man be slashed in half, it would seem as if a man has truly been cut in such a way), but the real damage is instead reverted to the attacker.]
>>28012124Sorry, about that, I didn't see your post until just now.
>>28012223[I mean the ones that haven't been described so far, like Wayward Son, Great Gatsby, and Midnight Lightning. I really appreciate the fact you take the time to analyze all Stands every thread.I'm thinking about making a Stand Compedium readily available eventually, but I've been pretty busy.]
>>28011713Wait, Morioh? This place better not sprout legs and go off to fight an island of mobsters...great, now I want that book.
>>28012260Thanks, I've been trying to match up their stats to feats that were done in the manga, but some of them are rather hard to place.>>28012318Yeah, apprently the events in the Jorge Joestar novel read like bad fanfiction. Killer Queen ditches Kira to join Cars, who teams up with Dio, because he 'respects' Dio. Also SBR is part of the original universe, with the Corpse Parts coming from Dio, and the Dio in part 3 being a fake.Seriously, it's like if the guys who translated Duwang were told to write a book or something.
>>28011885[Since it's been quite a while, I'm going to default to this response.]"About that message..." LIVII started, but was interrupted by Emporio."Oh, I assume you'd like to know what happened to your spouse, correct? She was captured, and tortured, but a Rogue Trader rescued her by using his Stand ability to create a body double for her. That man brought her here to recuperate.""It seems I was in a coma for quite a while." Taldeer squeezed Lofn's hand, resting on her own. "My wounds were rather grievous, and I could hardly move for months...well, until suddenly I could use a Stand ability, as well. That...helped a lot."This catches your ear. "You...have a Stand Ability as well?"The mother nods. "Yes. If it wasn't for my 「Slaughterhouse-Five」, I probably would not be walking at this time..."You notice LIVII's expression darkening, depicting a silent fury and dangerous aura. Despite his wounds, his vigor seemed renewed, and should whomever had hurt Macha's sister present themselves in front of the ex-Vindicare...you almost would feel sorry for them."...I'm just glad you're all right. I honestly thought you were dead." Ronahn breaks the thick, engrossing silence."The people here have been good to me and watched over me in my time of need. I owe them a great debt." >Ask about 'Morioh'.>Ask about 'Burning Down the House'.>Ask about the people living here.>Ask more about Emporio.>(LIVII)Inquire regarding Taldeer's captors and their treatment of her.>(Macha)Ask about the Rogue Trader.

>>28014317[Feeling much better, guys. Much better. Work really IS getting to me.]>>28014317A gentle wind caresses your face and brushes your hair. This place...it feels almost like a paradise. A 'sanctuary', was it?"Mr. Alniño. Can you tell me more about this town?"He flashes a bright smile. "I figured you'd be driven to know more about this place. The real deal was, after all, where one of the Joestar family lived as well. Or should I say 'some'? It's a rather complicated affair, that. Oh! But I'm getting carried away with that. What you truly need to know is that this whole town was victim to the fires of war...truly a tragedy. Since I considered that place 'important', I made sure it lived on in my Burning Down the House."A town where one of the 'Joestar' family lived. Was this perhaps the reason you felt a strange magnetism coming from this town?"You mentioned a 'Rogue Trader'. Those are the Mon'keigh merchants that explore uncharted territory, are they not? Who exactly is the man that saved my sister?" Macha asks, genuinely curious about this savior."Ah, that boy? He's always coming and going, trying to act cool and whatnot. I know him sice he was a kid. He should be headed to this planet, so maybe you'll get to meet him, too.">Ask about 'Burning Down the House'.>Ask more about Emporio.>Ask about the people living here.>Ask about the 'Joestar'.>Ask about where exactly are you currently headed.[NM 5]

[And now, for some Stand Descriptions as well:WAYWARD SONUser: LIVIIStrength: BSpeed: AStaying: BRange: DPrecision: CLearning: BABILITIES - Vector: Wayward Son's touch draws an 'arrow' on any object it touches. Once this arrow is set, the object will act as if they had a 'force' applied to it (without damaging said object) on the direction of the arrow. The 'magnitude' is set by the Stand user almost unconsciously. Timer: The effect of Wayward Son's 'Vector' ability can be delayed up to 5 seconds by the user when setting the 'arrow', for a delayed effect. ]
>>28019971This Stand is pretty much a mirror to Low Rider, with Learning being 1 rank lower, and Staying swapped around with Precision. Even their abilities are related to the concept of [movement] which is fitting, since they're both related.>Staying: BUhhh, that's between Dio's 'Being shattered in half from a punch to the knee' to Joseph's 'Uninjured from having his Stand shredded.'I don't remember any durability feats shown by a B ranked stand...
[GREAT GATSBYUser: Ronahn UlthranStrength: ASpeed: BStaying: CRange: E*Precision: BLearning: CABILITIES -Yellow Rolls-Royce: Great Gatsby allows Ronahn to set a 'collision' within any object and the ability to activate the effect remotely. For example, should this ability be used on a 'bullet', the bullet can be fired into an object. When triggered remotely by Ronahn, the 'storing' object releases a shockwave. Anything caught in said shockwave would receive the same effect as 'being hit by a speeding vehicle'. Thus, this ability is meant mainly for dealing damage and demolitions. Great Gatsby can use this ability in up to 6 objects at the same time.*Actual movement range of the Stand. Any 'storing' object within 300 m can actually be triggered.**Great Gatsby cannot use living organisms as 'storing' objects. ]
>>28020117The timer ability seems like a lesser version of Sex Pistols, which is fitting, since the user is an Assassin. Long range enhancement, coupled with very good close range abilities make LIVII a very good for solo operations.It's more powerful that Low Rider in close range, but with long range and versatility it's more of a toss up.>>28020162Brutal combat stand, has the stats that I was expecting Ruby Tuesday to have
[Midnight LightningUSER: Titus ZepelliStrength: BSpeed: BStaying: DRange: B*Precision: CLearning: BABILITIES -Electric Feel: Titus and his Stand can store all sorts of 'energies' within themselves, like a living battery. These energies can then be used to create objects, be they for utility purposes (like for example, a makeshift bridge), or for combat purposes (weaponry). If used as weapons, the objects would have all the properties of the desired weapon, plus effects fitting to the energy type that was used (creating a chainsword out of 'electricity', for example, would not only cut, but electrocute the foe). As weapons, these can only be wielded by Titus. Functional objects, however, can be used by anyone, as they have several properties removed (an electric bridge would not electrocute anyone, friend or foe). As a matter of fact, Titus unconsciously used a partially-awakened version of this Stand Ability against Nemeroth during their final battle in Forge World Graia, transforming 'chaotic energies' stored within his body in the form of 'knuckle dusters'. It is entirely possible that Titus' exposure to Warp energies, instead of corrupting him, partially awoke his Stand Ability.Release: The energy that Titus and Midnight Lightning can store is limited. All energy can be exergonically released, creating a blast radius around Titus. This can harm friend or foe, so one has to be careful with its usage. Additionally, this released energy cannot be reabsorbed.Radar: By focusing, Titus can use Midnight Lightning to detect energy signatures within a 1 kilometer radius. He can only detect the energy itself, but not to whom it belongs.*This Stand cannot make Titus or itself absorb damage and impacts as 'kinetic energy'. Said possible sources of energy act too fast, and do not allow the Stand to absorb the energy efficiently. ]
>>28020363[**Midnight Lightning does not need to be next to Titus in order to absorb energy, and energy can be transferred and traded between both sources almost instantaneously. Either Titus or Midnight Lightning can create 'weapons' at will, but Midnight Lightning is required to build larger 'functional objects'.]

Places that have 'burnt down' can be recreated thanks to my Stand, so long as I meet someone who has a memory of said place. Actually, we're going to go meet him right away."Another person that has lived so long?!"...Is that...my...I mean, our ancestor?" you ask."No. He's not a Joestar like either of you."

Rolled 80>>28024373LIVII: "Actually, I'd like to know a bit about a certain man named 'Emporio', who has a tendency to help strangers for little to no reason."
Just wanted to let you know, OP, that I marathoned the whole quest and that it's fun and fabulous as hell. Keep on gettin' back, JoJo.
>>28024976"Jöšūkę?" you attempt to stammer, but the pronunciation is quite off, and you can tell. That name definitely is not in Low Gothic. It sounds foreign, even alien."Yes, the illegitimate Joestar...in this very town, he and his friends pursued a serial killer with a Stand...well, the original version of this town, anyways. I met him quite a few times, myself."Your conversation is interrupted, however, when Emporio is approached by a woman and her young son."Whoaaaaaaaaaaaa...is that a Space Marine? His armor is blue, but he's not a Crimson Fist, is he, mother?" the young boy happily chirped, scanning Titus head to toe. "Eram! You're being rude to Mr. Emporio's guests!" scolded the older woman, before directing herself at Emporio. "I'm terribly sorry Mr. Emporio and Blessed Astartes, it's just that my son...""...gets easily excited when it comes to Space Marines, does he not? Ahahaha, that's our Eram!" Emporio smiled wide, petting the boy's head."If I had known he'd be like that, maybe I'd never had told him that story..." the mother lamented."About how your lives were saved by the Crimson Fists, and their Chapter Master carried your tired body to safety? I'd say otherwise! It does good to a boy to have ideals and role models to aspire to."The boy, Eram, happily cried out. "Mister Astartes! Mister Astartes! When I grow up, I'll be a Space Marine just like you! And then, then, I'll protect everyone!!"Titus chuckled and kneeled besides the boy, bringing his enormous body closer to the ground. "I do not see any reason you cannot become one, lad, if you wish for it hard enough. Now, would you like to ride on my shoulders?""Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!"You couldn't help but smile as the young boy was lifted atop Titus' shoulders, his gleeful laughter filling the air. If for a brief moment, there seemed to be not a single care in this world.Emporio spoke again to the woman. "Metis, is 'he' at home? I'd like to introduce my guests to him."
>>28025958The woman nods. "He should be at his home, sir. Should I accommodate to the guests first?""Please do so. I believe they must be tired from their journey. Some are heavily wounded, even. Before visiting 'him', I think we should have them rest for a bit, and have Taldeer tend to the wounded."The woman, Metis, nods once again before training her eyes on you. "If you'd be so kind, sir, as to follow me?">Follow>Before leaving, ask Emporio about the people who live here.>Ask Metis about the people who live here.>Ask about this person Emporio keeps mentioning.>(LIVII) Ask Taldeer how she'd tend to your wounds.[NM4]

Rolled 64>>28026065>Follow while asking about people who live herealso>>28025958dawwwww
>>28026156You decide to follow the woman, Metis. As you walked in silence, a question pops on the back of your head.How come there were people living here? Without even realizing it, you immediately ask that question. Metis smiles, her expression distant and yet serenely happy. "Mister Emporio used his power to save us all in some way or another. We are all in his debt...thanks to him, we can live in this paradise called 'Morioh'."You walk a few more moments in silence, and you hear those following you chatting animatedly. Even LIVII, whose wounds would keep a lower man down for the count, laughed together with his wife and daughter, one of whom he had not seen in a long time.That's right. Wife. He's married to one of the Eldar.You cannot even call them 'xeno' in good conscience anymore. As you walk in quiet reflection, you discover something about yourself. You now see these aliens as 'people'.Perhaps, that wasn't so bad.Metis stops. "We're here." In front of you, there's a pristine white building, its design archaic, but it indeed looks very cozy."Please feel free to use the installations as you see fit. Eram, say goodbye; we're leaving."The boy jumps down from the Battle-Brother's shoulder, walks towards his mother, and turns around to wave at the ex-Captain. "Bye-bye, Mr. Titus!" The Astartes smiles, and raises his own hand to wave as well. "I'll be seeing you, child. Remember, Space Marines always listen to their mothers."Once inside, you take a moment to take in your surroundings. The furnishings were quite unlike those seen within your habitual Imperial residence, design-wise, yet you could recognize each and every one of them. There was a white couch, white chairs, some shelves made of wood, and sunlight filtered from doors that seemed to connect to a garden.This was a living room alright.
>>28026728"I'll tend to LIVII and my brother first," thus spoke Macha's sister, Taldeer, whilst she took a look of where the knife broke through your skin. "I see you're wounded, too, but it doesn't look too bad."She was right.

What is it you wish to talk about?"You take a seat next to the gargantuan warrior."It was awfully nice, what you did for that boy back there. Are you usually so good with children? I never pictured an Astartes would be so good at dealing with children."Titus looks deep in thought. "I believe...it just reminded me of how I used to be when I was a young lad. That was so long ago, and yet it's all coming back to me. 'I'll become a Space Marine and protect everyone', I, too, used to say a lifetime ago. That eventually became 'I'm a Space Marine, and and my power is to serve the Imperium." I used to think those two thoughts were one and the same, but...""You are seeing things in a new light, too?" You ask. He casts his gaze downwards."I thought a lot about it while I was held captive. Now that I've escaped from being behind bars, my thoughts have been shaken even more." He takes a deep breath. "If the Imperium found about that little girl, the Vindicare's daughter..."You sigh deeply. "I figure they would 'purge' her too, for she has 'xeno blood' within her.""...And yet, look at her. She's just a young child who loves her mother and father and wants to be happy with her family. Has she committed any 'evil'?""No." You deny. "She hasn't."
>>28028203"I've come to realize one thing, Joachim. 'Imperial Justice' is not so much about 'righteousness' or 'the Emperor's will' as it is about 'convenience'. It's 'convenient' to rally the people against a common enemy, throwing lives away to preserve the status quo. It's 'convenient' to get rid of a loyal servant because they may know too much. 'Blessed is the mind too small for doubt'? No, it's not 'blessed'...it's 'convenient', as it cannot discern the lies it's been fed. We've met the Emperor in his divine glory, and he seems to have a different idea as to how things should be ran. We've been fed falsehoods for far too long.

>>28028755The inside of your mouth feels like it has been stuffed with cotton. Your eyes flutter open, and you look at the white ceiling above you. "Ah! You've come to." Says a female voice, which you recognize as Taldeer's.It seems you're currently on a bed. You start digging through your blurred memory...yes, you collapsed not too long ago and you have no idea why.As if reading your thoughts, Taldeer chimes in. "You were stabbed with a poisonous knife by my idiot brother here..."You turn your head to the left. There sits Ronahn, his face a purple mess of bruises. Someone made quite a number on him..."Macha and I made sure to straighten things out."...Scary."O-oh. My mistake..." groans Ronahn, He looks like he's in pain.

I'm surprised Macha would be attracted to the gentile type."WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!She must have read the shock in your face, because then, Taldeer broke into a fit of curtsy giggles. "I'm just teasing you. I heard you and LIVII are related? It's nice to meet you as well, in-law."How's that for a warm welcome to the family?The Eldar's lips break into yet another devious grin. "You know, my little sister IS quite lonely. Are you sure you don't want to upgrade your in-law level to 'brother-in-law'?"Urk! This woman was merciless with her teasing..."Come to think of it, though, Criehr also seems to be rather fond of you. If my sister isn't your type, how about settling down with my cute subordinate?"WHAT IN THE HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...Taldeer giggles some more. "Oh, Joachim, I can definitely tell you're going to be fun to have as an in-law. Now, you really should sleep some. We're already in a night cycle, we can continue to know each other tomorrow."You seem to have made a good impression on Macha's sister...for better or for worse...You close your eyes, and after a couple of minutes, sleep claims you once again.[Turns out I have to leave for today, guys. Sorry about that. In any case, so long as this thread still lives, I'll try to continue making updates in the following days to offset the fact we haven't been able to get very far this week.

>>28030821[Wow, we were in Page 0 just about an hour ago, and we're already on Page 9? /tg/'s strangely active today.]Your eyes flutter open as rays of 'sunlight' filter into the room.You kick off the sheets covering you and notice a bandage running around your right bicep. You flex it a little, then move your left arm, feel for legs...everything's accounted for. You feel a lot better better now.Nobody but you are in the room.You get up and exit the room. Just outside, you stumble upon Zola."Joachim, hello. I heard you were poisoned?"You rub the back of your head "Apparently so...when did you get here, Zola?""Just this morning. We left a skeleton crew back at the transport and came here with help from Weather Girls. Yuu'yan's here's too, drilling the Cadian Guardsmen on Eldar weaponry. Oh! And Trussardos is here, too.

Rolled 21>>28035394>Try to find Macha.she's the Mission Control and we need more planningalso, those tears of happiness
>>28036060Thanking Zola, you decide to look for Macha. She just went through some family drama, after all, what with her brother trying to kill her brother-in-law and all.If that's not an awkward family reunion, then you don't know what is.You find her outside, on the garden, trees stretching back to as far as the eye can see, without any boundaries. As if feeling your presence approaching, she speaks, her back to you."You know, this place was actually a town in the planet you humans call 'Terra'. It's hard to believe how peaceful and beautiful it is.""This was...in Holy Terra?"You've heard stories of Holy Terra...supposedly, it was incredibly beautiful in architecture, but had no place for greenery or nature. "It's good to see you're doing good, JoJo. You honestly worried me for a minute back there." Macha turns to you, taking a sip of a beverage contained within a can held on her hand. "My idiot brother tends to screw up everyone's fun in one way or another. Reminds me of Father, quite honestly." She tosses a can, identical to the one on her hands, towards you, and you catch the cold metal container in midair. "Drink up, JoJo. The local specialties are rather refreshing."With a pop, you open the can and start downing the drink. It's fizzy, sweet but not excessively so, and downright tasty. "This is rather good! What is it?" you ask. "One of the locals told me it was called 'Coca-Cola'. Apparently, it was a rather popular beverage amongst humans millenia ago, and you could find it anywhere in the planet. "Ah. I see." So you were, essentially, drinking down Imperial history. You wonder, briefly, if one of the ancestors of the Joestar lineage held a drink like this in their hands as well.>Talk to Macha about something of your choice.>Go deeper into the garden, into the array of trees.>Go somewhere else (your choice).>Other[NM 5]

Rolled 51>>28036812>>28036813past the NM, but i'll support these
>>28036812The foliage ocean outstretching in front of you awakens your curiosity. Might be a good place to go for a leisurely stroll."I'm going to walk around a bit. Macha, would you like to accompany me?"Wordlessly, she nods, and you two begin to walk together, side-by-side, taking in the scenery as you go along. Some idle chitchat later, you decide to ask a much more personal question."Macha, a conversation I had with Captain Titus recently made me curious..can you tell me about your childhood?""Oh? Is this your discrete attempt at asking for my age?" Macha joked teasingly."I-It's nothing like that!" You deny vehemently, waving your hands in front of you. "As I was saying, I had a conversation with Captain Titus earlier, and it sort of wandered into the topic of our expectations for the future as children...that's all.""Come to think of it..." she places her right index finger on her chin "that little boy yesterday wants to become a Space Marine someday, does he not? I'll be honest with you, Joachim." Macha suddenly got serious. "I usually don't get to talk much about my childhood, so I've forgotten most of it.""Most...?""Yes." her eyes are watery. Have you said something you shouldn't? "What I do remember is the sadness I felt when father sent me off to live with relatives in Biel-Tan, after mother died, while Taldeer and Ronahn stayed in Ulthwé...I felt...abandoned."You can feel the sorrow in her voice. This was definitely a difficult topic for her to talk about. Her solemn expression, however, changes with a vivacious one in a matter of seconds. "So! I take it's only fair you share with me a little about your own."

Rolled 30>>28037588oh right
>>28037526"My childhood, huh..." You start thinking back in your earlier days, but nothing in particular sticks out in your mind. "Well, I used to live in the upper levels of the only Hive City back in my planet with my grandmother and uncle...for the record, my uncle is the planetary governor. I didn't like sticking around the upper levels all the time, though, so I often visited the lower levels. Boy, did I break up a lot of fights...I was rather tall for my age, and the other kids respected me for some reason and would heed my words, but I DID get into some fights...other than that, well, I wanted to become a Guardsman like the father I never knew personally, so I did.""Joachim...you never knew your father?""Nor my mother." You lament. "My grandmother filled that role for me as I grew. So when you speak of being raised by relatives, I understand, even if just a little."You two end up staring into each others eyes for what seems like an eternity, but your moment of bonding is broken as a deafening sound filled the air. Macha looks away and covers her ears with her hands."Dear Isha! What is that noise?!">"We should investigate whatever it is!" (Go investigate the source of the sound directly)>"We should go investigate, but carefully. Let's not make a sound. (Go investigate the source stealthily).>"We should get the others and see what it is!" (Go back to the house and rally some reinforcements).>"It's probably nothing. Just everyday life around here."

>>28037749Silently wading through the trees, you follow the noise, with Macha in tow. The racket gets louder and louder as you approach, until..."I...I did it! I got this Gue'la machine working! I..I can't believe it!"Near your hiding spot, you can see a yellow vehicle with a curvacious design, reminding you much of Eldar machinery, yet still looking human-made. And next to it, a blue-skinned girl with a 'Y'-like facial marking, her red hair a few shades lighter than Macha's. She looked rather pleased with herself. She wore a black tank-top and baggy brown pants, a coat of the same color tied around her waist. In her hands, which had three fingers where there should be four, she held some sort of tool. She was definitely alien in nature...was she repairing the vehicle? That seems to be the case. "Is that...one of the Tau?" Macha mused out loud.The 'Tau' girl must have heard her, as she quickly yelped with an "Eep!" and dashed towards the other side of the vehicle, hiding behind it. "W-who's there?!">"Apologies, we didn't mean no harm. We were just curious about the sound. My name is Joachim Joestar." (Introduce yourself).>Stay quiet, have Macha handle the situation.>Stay quiet, gesture to Macha to stay quiet as well.>Walk out to the open without saying a word.>Other [NM 4]

A man, seemingly Eldar, approaches from behind the vehicle. "I see you've met my lovely assistant, Mr. Joestar. Now, allow me to introduce myself, I am Mikita-""AAAAAAAAAAAAAIEEEEEEEEE!!" Yet another interruption occurs as Macha's shriek pierces the air...but it was more out of surprise than anything else, as you turn to her and see her unscathed."No way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way!!" Macha shouts."Macha...? What's wrong!?" You start to get worried."What is the legendary Eldar explorer from 38 millenia ago,Nu Mikitakazo Nshi, doing here?!

But if he has lived this long..."Macha, why does this man surprise you so?" Might as well get to know this person a little better."U-uhm, yes.
