Have fun!
September 22nd, 1988"Here's your recepit." Jotaro rips the textbook page he was writing down and lets it fly close to where Steely Dan's unconscious body is, before departing to find the group's latter half.Considering where Kakyoin's Emerald Splash was, you figure it'll be a while before finding Joseph and the others, but since the jeep's closer to your location than their, chances are you'll probably have to go back here anyways.>Go with Jotaro.>Approach Dan and look for your belongings.>Wait close to the jeep.
>>2209345 >Approach Dan and look for your belongings.i'm happy that you're doing more with the other crusaders other then their allotted 2-3 fights
>Approach Dan and look for your belongings.
>>2209346I don't think I've done anything that different from the canon story if you don't count the times when they're resting. It's kinda hard to work with some of them desu.
>>2209356IIRC we haven't fought N'Doul yet but we've gotten iggy so that's a major deviation from the normal plot
>>2209345>Approach Dan and look for your belongings.You know, he's a complete fuckin dickhole...but we should probably still look for a flesh bud on him anyways. It's standard procedure, after all, right?
>>2209346>>2209348>>2209367Approaching Dan, you look for your belongings under the pile of rubble he's at while Jotaro walks away from the fighter. Since Iggy's taking a nap close to where you are, you doubt he'll be following the boy either.Placing a hand on his pockets, you manage to find both yours and Jotaro's wallets, along with his watch.He did say Dio paid him in advance, right? Could it be that he still has some money left in him?You keep searching the man while Jotaro hasnt arrived yet. Feeling a weird volume on his chest, you place a hand on his shirt's pocket to find a small, golden key. Neat, but where would you use this?Looking over to the destroyed food stand, you see a locked suitcase over the counter. Adding 2 and 2 together, you try to open it up with the key you just found, managing to find Dan's secret stash.Inside the suitcase, you find dozens of 100 dollar bills piled up neatly inside. Taking a few minutes to count them up, you estimate that the entire amount of money is close to a hundred thousand.Where does Dio find all of this money? Does he just casually pays everyone in advance like that?>Take the suitcase. It's not like he'll be using it anytime soon.>Maybe Mr. Joestar should have a look at this...>Don't take the money. It's not yours.
>>2209368>>Take the suitcase. It's not like he'll be using it anytime soon.an eye for an eye
>>2209368>Maybe Mr. Joestar should have a look at this...There may be a way to track these bills. While DIO probably has no trouble convincing wealthy people to work with him, breaking up his source of income could make him slip up out of annoyance or track down informants that he's using.
>>2209368>Take the suitcase. It's not like he'll be using it anytime soon.chances are this might bea) a new, Anubis-like Standb) an important decision that determines our fate
>>2209368>>Maybe Mr. Joestar should have a look at this...
>>2209368>Take a thousand dollars, no need to be greedy but he's got to pay
>>2209368>Maybe Mr. Joestar should have a look at this...
>>2209368>Take the suitcase. It's not like he'll be using it anytime soon.Dio's been draining the shit out of our funds with disaster after disaster. It's only fair game that we get some of that funding back. Honestly, I feel bad for how much of the Foundation's resources we've been using up - they only have so much, in the end.
>>2209378Speaking of the SPW I wonder if they run mostly off of the oil company or get money through research now
>>2209370Also: Joseph might be able to use his Hermit Purple on it to gain more information maybe? Not sure if it works like that, but some info on DIO is better than nothing.
>>2209368>Maybe Mr. Joestar should have a look at this...It is time to CRUSADE!
>>2209370>>2209373>>2209377>>2209384Writing. Good to know Hitomi aint greedy.
>>2209390it's 50/50 though?
>>2209396No it ain't.
>>2209396I change my vote to being not greedy in that case
>>2209390100.000 dollars, huh? Maybe Mr. Joestar should take a look at this... You personally don't hae a reason to want all that money, so that'll surely help out with the funds. Who knows how much he's already spent while travelling the Middle East with 5 people along with him?Grabbing the suitcase, you approach the jeep and sit down to wait for your comrades.10 minutes later, you see the other crusaders approaching the vehicle."Are you sure about that, Mr. Joestar? A rest on the hotel would be nice..." You hear Polnareff ask for Joseph to reconsiderate something in their conversation."We'll still have an entire day to rest on the boat. No point in standing still if we can be on the move." Joseph explains, wanting to arrive in Egypt as soon as possible.>Where did you go off to?>Are you alright, Mr Joestar?>Take a look at what I've found!>Boat?>Write-in.
>>2209407>Take a look at what I've found!
>>2209407>Are you alright, Mr Joestar?>Take a look at what I've found!
>>2209407>Take a look at what I've found!Time to gamble it all away
>>2209407>>Are you alright, Mr Joestar?>>Take a look at what I've found!
>>2209409>>2209410>>2209411>>2209413>>2209416"Are you alright, Mr. Joestar?" You worry about the senior's condition considering he just had a stand invade his brain."Eh, I've seen better days." Joseph complains. "Kakyoin and Polnareff had to shrink their stands to fight against Lovers, so a messy fight inside my brain made me a bit woozy, but that's hopefully just temporary. I ain't dying 5 days away from my birthday, that's for sure!""How old are you, Old man?" Jotaro asks his grandfather."I'm turning 69 this week." Joseph says to everyone's surprise."Whaaat?" Polnareff replies in shock. "I thought you were 53 or something! Damn, I wanna have a body like yours when I'm your age!""Indeed, it's amazing to see what your Hamon can do." Kakyoin ponders.Slowing aging seems to be an great side effect from the technique. If Joseph can look around 15 years younger while barely using the ability, you wonder what a Hamon master would be look like if they trained regularly."Well, consider this your birthday gift, look what I've found!" You hand over the suitcase you looted from Dan."You found Dan's money?" Jotaro asks after seeing Joseph open the suitcase."Very nice!" He gives you a thumbs up,. "That should be more than enough to help us travel to Egypt and then some. Tell you what, you can have the rest of this cash when this is over."After everyone gets inside the jeep, you're informed that the Foundation has prepared a boat for all of you to embark on. It should take about a day to reach Oman, so it could be a good time to rest too."Here." Jotaro hands you a handkerchief, reminding yourself that you're still dirtied up by sewage water. "They have showers back on the boat, so you won't have to worry about being dirty.">Thanks.>How long do you think it'll take us to reach Egypt.>About that kiss we almost had...>Write-in.
>>2209428>Thanks.>How long do you think it'll take us to reach Egypt?
>>2209428>Thanks.I'm not the only only one who imagined Jospeh's "Very nice!" in classic JoJo Engrish, am I?
>>2209428>Thanks.Considering the (at least minor) healing capabilities, I think we should recommend for Joseph to take a break for a day, and then to do some light hamon-breathing excersizes tomorrow. I think that would be best for his recovery.
>>2209428>>About that kiss we almost had...>>Write-in.Joke about this.
>>2209435Any particular joke in mind?
>>2209438Only bad jokes."So, how much do I owe you for your fifth kiss?" Pull out our wallet.And I got nothing. Being drunk and thinking about Kiss based jokes is not my strong part.
>>2209435>>2209436I think the near-kiss is best discussed in private.And also when we're not covered in sewage.
>>2209443Why even discuss it?
>>2209443You are probably right. But then it will be romantic if we bring it back. So it's now or never!
>>2209447I meant that if we discuss it at all, those are the preferable conditions for it in my opinionIt isn't something that needs discussed, reallyBut if we do, I'd rather do it in private and clean.
Yeah let's not discuss that almost kiss. No need to.
Also, I just got IT!!!We are a perfect counter to Mariah!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6dCtfPBwNU
>>2209428>Thanks.>How long do you think it'll take us to reach Egypt
"Thanks." You take the handkerchief and clean your face while thanking Jotaro. "How long do you think it'll take us to reach Egypt?""I'd give it a week at most." He informs. "After Oman, we only have to get to Saudi Arabia and cross the Red Sea. Reaching Cairo by foot and looking for Dio is another story, though...""You're probably right... Oh, before I forget! Here you go." You pull out your wallet and hand him a 10 dollar note."What's the money for?" He asks in confusion."I take it tasting sewage for a kiss would be pretty rough, so I figured you'd like something in return.""Good grief..." Jotaro holds out a chuckle. "Always thinking of a joke, arent you?"...After driving to the beach, you patiently wait for the ship to arrive at dusk."Heeeey!" A familiar voice greets the group.It's Tempest, now wearing a Speedwagon Foundation uniform, along with a giant pair of glasses on her face."What's up?" Polnareff is the first to remember who she is.>Where's your boyfriend?>How did it go with the Foundation?>Where's the bathroom?>Write-in.
>>2209476>How did it go with the Foundation?
>>2209476>How did it go with the Foundation?>Where's your boyfriend?
>>2209476>>Where's your boyfriend?
>>2209476>How did it go with the Foundation?I honestly thought Dust would Araki these characters
>>2209496Jojo's version of a Death Note is too much useful of a concept to dispose of now that it's in the Foundation's hands.
>>2209476>Where's your boyfriend?>How did it go with the Foundation?
>>2209505So we one-shoted an insta-kill stand? Hah.
>>2209516Which character is she?
>>2209516I planned on conpensating their op abilities with their incompetence, but Final Countdown isnt exactly instant. At most you'll be searching around with a reluctant Iggy while they hid somewhere, but you guys did too good on that beforehand.
>>2209532And final countdown wouldn't really work on people like n'doul
>>2209532>Final CountdownOh for something something. Now I got those DUDUDUDU stuck in my head for a while.>>2209531Probably the one with the megaphone.
>>2209541Nah, Rebel yell more incapacitated people instead of outright killing them like final countdown
>>2209478>>2209484>>2209480>>2209491>>2209496"How did it go with the Foundation, Tempest?" You ask the girl about her employment."Pretty good, actually." The four eyed girl responds. "They're paying me and Billy pretty well, so I think we can stick around for whatever they need!""For now, they're mostly scouting out for information and keep give us a heads up for any stand users on the countries we're going, but I'm considering using them to find other stand users around the world after Dio dies." Joseph explains. "We never had stand users working them before, so learning about other stands will be useful, maybe they might even recruit even more stand users while they're at it.""Speaking of Billy, where is he?" You ask Tempest about her boyfriend."He's getting a submarine for you to cross the Red Sea with some other workers." She informs."A submarine? We've yet to travel on one during this journey." Jotaro seems particularly intrigued by this statement."I hope he's doing alright..." Tempest worriedly thinks out loud about Billy....After taking a shower and having dinner, you figure you still have plenty of time to talk with someone on the boat before you go to bed. You do have a lot of options, but you're not sure who you should talk to first...>Polnareff.>Kakyoin.>Iggy.>Joseph.>Jotaro.>Tempest and the crew.
>>2209550>Kakyoin.we haven't actually talked to the guy in forever.and after >Tempest and the crew.I'd rather talk to jotaro while we're in the sub
>>2209556>Kakyoin.Ask him about his vidya that he brought along
>>2209556>>2209560>>2209573Approaching the pink hairred boy, you see Kakyoin eating from a small box of cherries, he gives the last one a good lick before noticing your presence and putting it back on the box."Hey there Hitomi." He greets you. "Joseph went to bed early due to him not feeling that well from today's fight.""He probably didnt want anyone to worry about how he is..." You try to justify him not sayig anything about it other than feeling a bit woozy."I can't blame him for feeling a bit burnt out considering he's the one in charge of all this..." He eats the last cherry from the box "Anyways, is there something on your mind?">What exactly happened while I was with Dan?>Did Jotaro tell you anything?>Is it true that you want to be a programmer?>Why do you play video games so much?>Write-in.
>>2209591>>What exactly happened while I was with Dan?
>>2209591>What exactly happened while I was with Dan?>Is it true that you want to be a programmer?>Aw, I wanted a cherry...computers are going big, and they'll only get bigger
>>2209591>What exactly happened while I was with Dan?
>>2209595>>Aw, I wanted a cherry...Yeah we could go for a reverse REROREROREROREROREROREROWe can always get one thro Karma Chamelioning one of the cherries in his belly.
>>2209591>>What exactly happened while I was with Dan?>Is it true that you want to be a programmer?>>2209604that's gross, anon
>>2209591>What exactly happened while I was with Dan?>is it true you want to be a programmer?>I wanted a cherry
>>2209605>that's gross, anonAnd that's why I will not pick this option until we will fully reject our humanity. Then when Kakyoin will face Pillar Vamptomi, we will skip fight with him by doing this shit.
>>2209614>pillar vamptomiI don't know why, but thats making me laugh real hard
>>2209618Hitpire WoMen. Fixed it.
>>2209591>Did potato say something?
>>2209593>>2209595>>2209607"Awww, I wanted a cherry..." You complain to Kakyoin after seeing him eating the last one."Sorry, Sorry!" he replies. "Cherries are my favourite food, so when I get the hands on them, I can't help but eat them all.""Alright then..." You brush it off. "But what exactly happened when you were fighting Dan for him to be so tired?""Well, Lovers managed to create some copies of his own stand to confuse us while he dug away at Joseph's brain and activated the flesh bud. I managed to find the real one and expel him from Joseph's body, but I managed to track him down with Hierophant Green's uncoiling ability." He explains."Whoa!" You gasp after hearing what happened. "But what about the flesh bud?""He managed to kill it with a good Overdrive. He's trying to heal himself with Hamon ever since, but he said it'll take a while for him to fully recover since he's out of touch."After hearing some more about the his condition, you decide to change the subject to something more casual."Hey, Jotaro told me you wanted to be a programmer, is that true?""Yeah, ever since I started playing video games I've been fascinated by technology as a whole." He passionetly explains himself. "I'm eager to see what we'll be able to do with computers with the sucess of the Commodore Amiga series. And I wanna be part of that too. I even have a few concepts for game ideas once I start college.">What would your game be like?>What do you think about our group's current condition?>I don't know a lot about video games...>Write-in
>>2209654>What would your game be like?I'd imagine hitomi might have played the original street fighter at an arcade or something. What kind of games would she even like...? Rhythm games? DDR doesn't really hit the scene until 199something though...
>>2209654>>What would your game be like?Operation save cherry licking milf hunter is a go
>>2209654>What would your game be like?
>>2209654>What would the game be like?He ends up making a milf dating sim called MILF Hunter
>>2209671>He ends up making a milf dating sim called MILF HunterAssuming he surivives the final fight. And canonically, well...
>>2209676We can just make him a new stomach and revive him
>>2209671He could join the fire emblem team, since that's being developed like, right now. Or maybe he'll wind up making something similar to sakura wars.
>>2209678>joins fire emblem team>makes everyone a milfI see a brighter future in this timeline
>>2209678>Marrige mechanic starts with the first game, and hot milfs are introducedImokaywiththis.jpg
>>2209660>>2209662>>2209667"What would your game be like?" You're curious to listen to what he has to say, given his knowledge on the industry."Well, currently the market's been trying to sell their products using mascots to attract the kids, especially in the west" He starts off his explanation. "Mario, Megaman, The Ninja Turtles, you name it. And now that this trend's starting to take off in the gaming market, I feel like it'd be nice if we had a parody of those types of mascots.""A parody?""Yeah, I wanna hit that sweet spot where I can make fun and satirize a normal video game while being entertaining without being too derivative." Kakyoin adds." What I had in mind was making a platformer about an earthworm traveling around planets to find her girlfriend, Princess Whatshername."You laugh at the female worm's particular name, congratulating him on being self aware of his own story."Jotaro even drew some concept art for me using Star Platinum!" He searches for his notebook to show you a drawing of an earthworm wearing a space suit while firing a gun."He managed to draw exactly what I was thinking using his stand's precision. Isnt he cool? I named him Jim." He excitedly points at the drawing of Earthworm Jim, awaiting for your response.>Go for it, I'd but it if I had the chance.>It sounds too silly to sell a lot, don't you think?>Write-in.
>>2209709>sounds goodKakyoin confirmed for time travel
>>2209709>Go for it, I'd buy it if I had the chance
>>2209709>Go for it, I'd but it if I had the chance.>But! Don't put all your eggs into one basket. Do you have any other ideas in the future?
>>2209720why not, I'll go for this
>>2209720>decides to try and use our adventures and stands as a basis>comes up with the basis for smt and later persona
>>2209720Good advice. Supporting
>>2209725>Hitomi looks like a persona femprotagthis works too well
>>2209720"Go for it, I'd but it if I had the chance." You encourage your friend on his idea despite not knowing that much about video games."Really? Thanks!" He's glad to hear that he has your support. "I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do when I start working.""But do you have any other ideas in the future? You need a plan b in case it doesnt take off, you can't put all your eggs in one basket." You advise him."Well, I could always apply for a company, but I personally think that would limit my liberty on developing games." He says. "While I am interested in making fun games, I also wanna see how far the media can go from a story telling perspective. Of course there's always role-playing games, but since they mostly play the same, it'd be hard to think of a way to innovate the genre without alienating newcomers..."You scratch your head while you try to follow up on his monologue about video games, but after noticing that he was becoming lost in his own thoughts, he clears his throat and puts his hands inside his pants' pockets."Well, as you can see it's not that easy to make a game, especially on my own. You have to think of a lot of variable even before forming a team to create the product..." He informs, trying to get back on topic. "But your observation will probably help out a lot, so thanks. Who knows? Maybe I'll even make a game about stands, too." He laughs it off, considering on what game to make next after he puts his name out on the market."No problem!" You give Kakyoin a thumbs up.>Change the subject.>Look for someone else.
>>2209763Josephs probably sleeping... Could go see him, maybe see if we can do anything to help.And ask for some medical textbooks, if they have any. Studying while we have some down time sounds nice.
>>2209766Definitely supporting reading up on biology and the like, if they happen to have any books on it. Even something on first aid would be good. If not now, later.
>>2209763>Look for jotaro
>>2209766Since we're the designated healer this would help
>>2209759It's like pottery
>>2209766>>2209769>>2209779Good old medicine lesson, huh?Let's test her luck to see if she finds anything around.Roll.
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>2209787man, we're never going to find anything with how hitomi rolls outside danger...
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>2209787Coming through
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>2209787>>2209791She can find something! Trust in the hitomi!
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>2209787
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>2209787
>>2209791Very nice, considering we aren't [Under Pressure]!
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>2209814Shame it wasn't THIS roll!
>>2209814Once we enter the sub, it will be [Under pressure] 24/7!>>2209816C E A S E
>>2209791Hitomi finds lewds?
>>2209824>Hitomi finds a small porn mag hidden between the med book's pages.>Joseph/some other memeber of the Crusaders gave her that med book.>Hitomi levels a judgemental stare at them.
>>2209836I hope this is what happens
>>2209836smugtomi is best hitomi
>>2209847>>2209850Of course, the question is.Will Hitomi "confiscate" the mag? /s
>>2209836>Is the porn mag the work on an enemy stand?>If not whose is it?
>>2209854She might just be upfront with it. "Let me borrow that some time too, you know?"Or she might be like"Well, I don't need it. I have all the eye candy I could possibly want."Or just straight up "Is this porn mag an enemy stand?!"
>>2209791Saying goodbye to Kakyoin, you start to think about your own job career, specifically what you can do to start learning about it right now, just like Kakyoin is doing.Looking around the boat, you see a crew member that had "Lifeguard" written on his uniform. After you explained your interests in biology and medicine, the lifeguard gives you a few basic lessons about medicine along with showing everything inside a first aid kid and explaining what you're able to do with each item, from tweezers to antiseptics, and while you didnt manage to get everything down 100%, you were definetly interested on what he had to say.Naturally, you came out of that experience thinking on how you could apply that knowledge using your stand and your Hamon techniques, which is something you could test out in the future, you did wrote down what you considered important, so you won't be having a problem remembering it.Feeling tired, you decide to rest for the day. Hopefully you'll already be in Oman by the time you wake up....September 23rd, 1988.You wake up to the sound of a dog loudly barking at your ear. Not exactly the best reception you could recieve from him.Looking up to the nearby clock, you see it's already 7 AM, the time where usually everyone's having breakfast, to which Iggy's happily chewing at.>Thanks, I guess...>Shoo him away.>No need to be so loud!>Give him some coffee gum.>Write-in.
>>2209854>>2209855Both of these need to happen
>>2209858>Thanks>kick him in half
>>2209858>Thanks, I guess...>That was loud. Can I ask you to tone it down if you do that again?Get some morning hamon exercises in, then off to breakfast
>>2209858>>Thanks, I guess...
>>2209871Changing to this
>>2209869why did this make me start laughing>>2209871supporting
>>2209871"Gee, thanks Iggy..." You gently caress your ears after almost going deaf. "Could you at least try to not be as loud next time?"sIggy gives you a wince like you were asking too much for him and simply walks off. What a prideful dog...Brushing him aside, you get out of your bed and focus your breathing to get a few Hamon charges. After that, you do a few dozen sit ups and squats to start off the day in a good mood. Nothing too rough, but hard enough for you to feel some straining.Moving over to the kitchen, you see the gang calmly having their meal. Well, most of them.Joseph seems to be having a pleasant chat with Tempest, while Polnareff and Kakyoin argue something about Iggy eating their food, to which the dog doesnt seem to care about in the slightest.Jotaro seems to be finishing up his meal with a pretty neutral look on his face.After grabbing your plate and preparing your meal, you decide to sit next to...>Jotaro.>Iggy, Polnareff and Kakyoin.>Joseph and Tempest.
>>2209925The only person not talking to anyone>Potato
>>2209925>Joseph and Tempest.Let's ask him some medical questions, if we know any. Headaches, double vision, memory loss, loss of taste, that sort of thing.
>>2209925>Joseph and Tempest.Should probably talk about helping him out, medically.
>>2209925>Joseph and Tempest.We should check up on joseph
>>2209933plenty of time to talk to potato
>>2209926>>2209927>>2209929>>2209933>>2209944>>2209946Edgy JooJ: 3Old JooJ: 3
>>2209958Is this a vote for joseph, or jotaro? I can't tell 100%.
>>2209925>>Joseph and Tempest.
>>2209960Well, I'm sticking with my vote for Joseph. Plenty of time to talk to potato later, but someone on our team has had head trauma and could probably use our help.>>2209958Is... that a vote for old man help or for sitting with potato?
>>2209960so, right now it's 3-4? with one in the air, with the two above reiterating thier choices.
>>2209987>>2209981>>2209970I'll pick Joseph first, you can still have a word with Jotaro before they arrive in Oman
>>2209994well I meant joseph anyways but I forgot to clarify so I guess it all works?
>>2209994Approaching Joseph and Tempest, they both greet you while you eat away at your food."Are you sure you're feeling well, My Joestar?" The four eyed girl worries herself about her boss' health."I've been worse, don't worry!" The old man replies with a laugh. "I just needed a good night's sleep, that's all!""Alright then, feel free to ask if you need anything" She points out before drinking some orange juice.>Any news on Avdol?>Any news on Holly?>I can use my Hamon on you if you want.>I could check your brain with Karma if you want.>Write-in
>>2210021>I can use my Hamon on you if you want.
>>2210021>I can use my Hamon on you if you want.>I could check your brain with Karma if you want.Hamon to boost some healing, stand just to check where the damage is, nothing more.
>>2210021>I can use my Hamon on you if you want.>My joestarI know that was a typo but man does that sound lewd
>>2210021>>2210027This. It's the best method. Actually...now that I think about it...What if we had Karma use the Hamon instead of us? Her precision is a bit above human-level. Plus, she could apply it directly where it's needed. In fact, if we wanted to take an extra careful approach, we could shrink her and have her do it bit by bit, just so we don't risk putting TOO MUCH hamon in such a sensitive area.
>>2210021>I can use my Hamon on you if you want.>I could check your brain with Karma if you want.>>2210033That could work!Also, we should try getting a fish and messing around with it with our stand.

>>2210055Nice, Nice, Nice!
>>2210052>>2210053>>2210055"I could always help out with my Hamon if you want, Mr Joestar." You raise your hand to show you're willing to help out the old man in need."Sure." He clears his throat. "You're getting better everyday with that Hamon of yours, I don't see why not."After finishing your breakfast, you walk behind Joseph and try to breathe the pain out of him with your Hamon, which turns out to have a positive effect on him."Oh, good! This feels a lot better now." He stretches his arms to get a feeling on how well he is after the healing session. "I don't know about my brain, but my body is at peak performance after thiat, thanks a lot!""I can help with that, too!" You summon Karma to get a feel inside his head, but just like last time, you only manage to phase through his skull, and since you can't really shrink your stand like Pol and Kak did, it's better to leave that for another time."I always get creeped out when you do that..." Joseph admits, seeing you hand get out of his brain. ">Any news on Avdol?>Any news on Holly?>How long until we reach Oman?>Write-in.
>>2210114>>Any news on Avdol?
>>2210114>Any news on Avdol and Holly?We really need to get that precision up to A, pronto.
>>2210114>It's creepy, but think about how useful it'll be when I'm a world class Doctor/surgeon. >Any news on Avdol and Holly?
>>2210114>Any news on Avdol and Holly?>>2210136Yeah, something like that. "It's creepy, but it's useful, isn't it? Especially since I'm going into surgery or biology. Or both."
>>2210114This>>2210136>if Joseph is almost killed by DIO will he try to pass his Hamon to us like will and ceasar did in the past?
>>2210179I'm almost positive he will. I'm...conflicted on it. On the one hand, it'd be so much better than...seeing what he becomes later on, where he starts losing his mind. It'd be a really powerful moment, a potent one that would be great for the story. But on the other hand, I think...maybe we can stop that. Maybe if Hitomi becomes a good enough doctor or surgeon, we can fix the problems before they become serious. Or prevent them entirely.
>>2210192Gotta train with the potato more to get star-platinum like precision then
>>2210192the hamon might slow down him going senile if we can convince him to keep it up again
>>2210121>>2210123>>2210136"I know it's creepy, but think about how useful this will be when i become the world's best doctor!" You beam proudly at your statement, confident on your own improvement."World's best doctor, huh? I'll give you a few years, but you better live up to my expectations." Joseph jokes at your statement.Speaking about doctors..."Any news on Avdol?" You ask Joseph about your friend back in India, worried if he's still making a good recovery."He just woke up yesterday." The old man is happy to tell you. "The chef said he'd make the best breakfast we've ever had to celebrate. I already told everyone else about it, too."Normally you would make a joke about the food not feeling that good, but you can't contain your excitement after hearing Avdol finally woke up."That's great, Mr. Joestar!""I know. It'll take another week for him to recover, but he plans on joining us again on Egypt, so hopefully we'll be already be there when he's all good.""What about Mrs. Holly?" You smile to your senior, but he doesn't smile back."Holly's only gotten worse after I last called her..." He sighs "She can still talk just fine, but the doctors said she keeps losing her balance when trying to walk, so the stand's only getting worse...""I'm sorry to hear that, Mr. Joestar..." You apologize, feeling like you've ruined the mood."It's alright. We still have until the end of October until we reach Cairo." He tries to pretend he's fine with that, with his tone clearly implying the opposite. "I guess it's just a father thing, it's hard to think rationally when your entire family is involved in this, you know?">We still have plenty of time, no need to feel pressured yet.>I wouldnt be able to be as calm if my family was on the line...>Write-in.
>We still have plenty of time, no need to feel pressured yet
>>2210241>>We still have plenty of time, no need to feel pressured yet.I feel like the other one is foreshadowing but that's probably just being paranoid
>>2210238>All of us here have your back. You can trust us to deal with Dio with time to spare! Just promise you won't run off and do anything rash during the home stretch, okay? We've still got to play it safe if we're all going to make it out of this.
>>2210238>We still have plenty of time, no need to feel pressured yet.
>>2210238>We still have plenty of time, no need to feel pressured yetuhh guys is anyone looking after our family, or milf hunter's?
>>2210238I'll second this: >>2210249Also: if Joseph managed to beat the Ultimate Life Form, then squeaking out a timely win against an upjumped vampire should be no sweat, right?
>>2210238>We still have plenty of time, no need to feel pressured yet.>no need to feel pressured>pressuredUnder pressure, where art thou?!>>2210249agreed
>>2210241>>2210249"Hey,we still have plenty of time, no need to feel pressured yet." You try to ease his worries."I know, I know. It's just something that's always at the back of my head..." He lowers his face to stare at the floor.Maybe a more assertive approach would help him out..."Mr. Joestar, All of us here have your back here. You can trust us to deal with Dio with time to spare! Just promise you won't run off and do anything rash during the home stretch, okay? We've still got to play it safe if we're all going to make it out of this.""Whoa, I wouldn't do that!" He raises his face, with his confident grin returning while Polnareff exits the kitchen. "Who do you take me for, Polnareff?""Hey! I take offense to that!" Polnareff raises his voice, only for the laughter of everyone still on their tables to respond him."Oh man, I really needed that one..." Joseph stops laughing and finishes his food. "Your daughter would be in great hands if you were on my place Hitomi!""Of course she would!" You say, picking up the mood. "She'd be like a mini me, how would she be in bad hands?""Alright, alright. Thanks for the laughter." He stands up from his seat. "Be ready to leave, ok? We'll be arriving in Oman anytime now!" He warns you after leaving."Mr. Joestar, wait!" Tempest, who was the first to leave after she finished her meal, rushes to the exit, likely wanting to ask something about the Foundation.>Look for someone else to talk to.>Wait for the boat to dock.
>>2210334>talk to potato
>>2210334lets go look for potato. invite him to go fishing on the edge of the boat.
>>2210361Couldn't we do that but with our stands for precision training?
>>2210364With B, I think that wouldn't help much, Some harpoon fishing with our stands could still be fun though, while the two of them fish normally. Practice multi tasking. Some live fish to mess around with wouldn't be so bad to practice with either.
>>2210334>talk to potato>"Of course she would!" You say, picking up the mood. "She'd be like a mini me, how would she be in bad hands?">Your daughter would be a THOT!>THOOOTTTTT!
>>2210348>>2210361>>2210364>>2210368>>2210371Exiting out of the kitchen, you see Jotaro doing what he enjoys the most, staring at the sea with his cigarette pack in his hands.Before he could lit those, he acknowledges your present with a short grunt, turning around in order to hear what you have to say.>Did you heard the news?>Don't you ever get tired of smoking these?>Wanna go fishing?
>>2210420>Did you heard the news?once he's said his piece>Wanna go fishing?as for the smoking thing... well, we probably can't convince him to stop, but we have hamon and a stand. Maybe we can reverse what damage there is once we're good enough. Could say that to him too. "I won't stop you, but I'll fix whatever you break."
>>2210420>Did you heard the news?>Wanna go fishing?>If he asks why tell him its a way to both practice with your stand's precision and a way to just chill and relax.>make a competition out of it even>pout if he beats you.
>>2210420I'll second this: >>2210430
>>2210430>>2210444Supporting We could grab a cup of sugarand with a side of coffee while we sit out here and fish too, if there is any.
>>2210430>>2210444>>2210448>>2210450"Did you hear the news?" You ask Jotaro about Avdol and his mother."Yup. Good to know Avdol's making a good recovery" he adjust his hat. You feel like asking, 'what about Holly?' but judging by the look he's giving you, he probably doesn't want to talk about it.Just like last time, you sit close to Jotaro and watch the sea along with him. This time however, you notice that his body language isn't as defensive as when you were back in the boat to Singapore. He lets you stand a lot more closer to him, only backing away when he has to blow out the smoke.You're already used to Jotaro's silent way of communicating, but you feel really satisfied to know he's more comfortable around you, even when he's in a bad mood."Hey, wanna go fishing?" You say, taking a look at the fish jumping out of the water."You think they have fishing rods here?" He asks, surprised by your suggestion."Give me a minute..." You walk off to ask the crew members, arriving with two rods and a fish filled with anchovies."Here you go!" You hand him a rod."I don't wanna hurt the fish, though..." Jotaro examines the fishing rod, worrying about the fish."We won't eat him, you big baby! It's just for fun." You tease him like you usually do when he gets too serious. "We can even use your stands to make it more interesting.""Fine then. The loser get's attacked by the next enemy stand." He returns your teasing after putting the fish bait on the hook."Deal!" You both summon your stands, ready to get as many fish as you can.>Roll for results.

You both place your stands underwater close to the hook, trying to see if any nearby fish."It's a bit hard to see underwater..." You squint your eyes, trying to look something other than salt and bubbles."Star Finger!" Star Platinum extends his fingers to the shoal of fish approaching the boat, catching one by one with his stand and placing them inside the bait bucket."Are you serious?" You get flustered over how quick he's filling his bucket, you have to do something if you intend on winning this, fast!"Karma!" You turn Karma Chameleon into water with ease since she was off the boat, perfectly camouflaging her in the ocean.The fishes are approaching again, maybe you can use Karma's current state to pull them up and catch them all by surprise...SPLASH!As soon as they come close to your stand, you pull her back with all the speed you can muster up, making dozens of fish fly down towards the deck, knocking over both you and Jotaro."That didn't count. You were cheating!" Jotaro complains after getting himself up."Oh, don't tell me you weren't cheating with that Star Finger of yours!" You respond after your classmate helps you stand up."Good grief... Now my cigs are all soaked up..." Jotaro checks his soaked up cigarette pack after taking it out of his jacket."I'll buy you another one when we get to Oman." You smile to him, managing to see the coast in the distance. "Why don't we help these fishies get back on the water in the meantime?"Seeing you grab the fish with Karma's two rows of arms, Jotaro ultimately complies; gracefully admitting defeat and helping you save the fish.>To be continued...That's it for today. Be ready for the tomorrow's stand fight though, I'll begin a bit later than today's session.
>>2210621Pff, Jotaro's a little bit of a sore loser when you catch him off guard.Also, Jotaro is totally going to be attacked by the next stand user, now. It was part of the deal.
>>2210621Any character opinion changes?What does Joseph think of the Potato/Hitomi ship?What time tomorrow exactly?
>>2210621Thanks for the run, Dust!
>>2210696Iggy's finally respecting the group thanks to Hitomi, but that won't stop him from messing around with everyone.Avdol is very thankful to Hitomi after hearing her saved his life, he can't wait to meet her again and see how well she's doing.Jotaro hates to admit it but he's honestly adoring her company, even though she tease him a lot. Now that he sees Hitomi as her equal and appreaciates the way she always helps everyone with their problems, he's sensing a weird, positive feeling towards her, but he can't put it in words yet.Kakyoin, Polnareff and Joseph still have the same opinion on you.Well, Holly introduced you as "Jotaro's girlfriend". So he isnt surprised you two are having some time alone with eachother, even after Jotaro explained the two weren't together. Polnareff and occasionally teases him about Hitomi while Kakyoin gives him advice on how to act around Hitomi.14:30 UTC-3.
>>2210876What is this strange positive feeling? It's not quite the feeling I get after beating the shit out of someone who got on my badside... Not the feeling I get when I take a long drag on a smoke. It's kind of like that feeling I get when I look out at the ocean, but it's not that either... what could it be?I know! This must be friendship!
is it time?

September 24th, 1988.After arriving in Oman, Joseph and Polnareff went back driving around the barren wastelands called deserts until reaching the United Arab Emirates, a fancy country full of expensive looking buildings and hotels, which Joseph decided to avoid since most of the crusaders agreed on sleeping on the car. Only this time around, Joseph bought a fancy black car to ride with instead of the jeep the group has been previously using."Why didn't you buy an off road vehicle, Mr. Joestar?" Polnareff asks, mantaining his eyes on the road."You'll find out soon enough." He says, taking a look at his map. "I took the boat ride since I wanted to avoid the politically unstable route from Iran to Iraq, but taking the route to Saudi Arabia will be a bit tricky too.""What do you mean by that?" Jotaro asks, inching forward to take a look at the map his grandfather is currently holding."Now that we're past Abu Dhabi, there's a small villaged named Yarpline 100 kilometers from here, the road is heavily curved due to all the desert mountains." He circles some parts of the map. "It would take a few days to reach by car, but we cant cut that to a day if we buy a Cessna plane to cross Saudi Arabia.""You know how to ride a plane, Mr. Joestar?" Polnareff is surprised to hear."Well, up to know I've been worried that enemy stand users would cause any plane we rode to crash, putting innocent lives at risk" He admits. "But if I pilot a private plane like a Cessna, it wouldn't be a problem.""I don't really want to board a Cessna with a man who's been through 3 plane crashes." Jotaro makes a snarky comment, which makes Joseph wince at him in silence.>3 plane crashes? How did that happen?>Don't be such a party pooper, Jotaro!>What does that have to do with the fancy car, though?>Write-in.
>>2211899>What does that have to do with the fancy car, though?let's be against flying, too
>>2211902I'm adding in:>You shouldn't fly a plane, Mr. Joestar, you got hurt in the head short two days ago.
>>2211894Maybe, hopefully he won't come out of an egg in case Hitomi convinces Jotaro to have a second kid.
>>2211899>I bet Kakyoin could fly pretty well. He's probably played a flight simulator before.
>>2211899>>Write-in.Heh, it would be safer for us to just grow some wing and fly there.
>>2211899>That's cool. The knowing how to pilot a plane part, not the crashing, though that can be cool depending on why. So...>3 plane crashes? How did that happen?
>>2211902>>2211904>>2211921"Knowing how to fly a plane sounds cool, but not the part about 3 plane crashes..." You side with Jotaro. "How did that happen?""Well, one was when my uncle Speedwagon's plane was hijacked when I was a kid,t he second one was when I threw Kars in as volcano when he became the Ultimate Life Form, and you were with me on the last one, so no need to explain how that happened." Joseph reminds him of the Gray Fly event, making his plane crashes sound as casual as going to the grocery store."Still, I don't think you should fly in a plane after getting a head injury, Mr. Joestar." You worry about his health."Don't worry, thanks to this car, we're going to have an extra day to rest!" He points out, confusing the other group members."What does that have to do with the fancy car, though?" You ask, only for Joseph to park his car next to a man selling camels."Hey, sir! How much do you charge for 5 camels?" He asks after getting out of the car, prompting the other crusaders to do the same."It won't be cheap, mister." The stingy seller warns him."Would it be ok if we traded those for my car, then?" Joseph offers, making everyone's jaw drop in response."Mr Joestar! You just bought that car!" Polnareff protests to his crazy offer."That's exactly why I bought it! A car like this wouldnt help us get through the desert, but since I can't write a check to the guy, besides, these guys don't trust cash here, so trading is a lot more effective." He confidently says, while everyone is still dumbfounded by his decision."Still, camels? How will Iggy even go with us?" You point at the Boston Terrier taking a look at the nearby camels."Well, you could always carry him with you, can't you? No reason to buy another camel just for him." Joseph says, approaching the camel seller to take a look at his new traveling vehicle. "So, are you guys ready to ride these guys?">Try to ride the camel.>Why don't you go first?
>>2211965>>Why don't you go first?
>>2211965>Try to ride the camelwe rolling for this?

>>2212019We're on full C H I L L mode man! And obviously, this is the work of an enemy stand!
>>2212019"Alright then, up and over!" You hop in the air, trying to grab ahold of the camel's hump, despite the fact that he is clearly twice your size."Pfft-- You need a hand, Hitomi?" Joseph offers help after a few unsucessful attempts, but his condescending chuckles ultimately force you to refuse his help."Please, I got rid of a stand user after getting out of the shower, this is nothing!" you summon Karma Chameleon to leap you up higher into the air."Whoa!" You shout, noticing you clearly overshotted your stand force as your stand flings you 5 meters up in the air.Wait, you're still close to the camel, maybe if you aim at him in the right angle you can straddle him with no problem.Unfortunately, the camel walks a few steps forward just before you managed to land on him, sending you faceplanting you into the sand like an ostrich hiding it's head in the sand.With your head neck deep in the sand, you hear Iggy's muffled barking as he approaches you to try and get a taste of your hair, only for the came to blow his nose on both of you.Joseph gets into a laughing fit while the other 3 crusaders just shamefully stare at you two."Mr. Joestar, you do know how to ride a camel, right?" Kakyoin doubts Joseph's knowledge."Of course, I've seen Lawrence of Arabia three times! Although I slep through a few parts of the movie since it was a bit long..." He boasts, comfirming that he only got these camels because he thought it would look cool."What? You've never actually ridden one?" Polnareff angrily points at the camels."Hey, no need to panic. When dealing with animals, it's important to understand how they feel." Joseph says, pulling an apple from his traveling bag and approaching one of the camels. "Here, doesnt this apple look delicious, little guy?"Lowering the food close to the ground, the camel finally sits down and lets Joseph ride him."Whoa! I did it!" He says, to the surprise of everyone. "It's really high up! Cmon, your turn, Jotaro."The crusaders start to grab the fruits from their respective bags to ride their camels.>Grab a fruit.>Try jumping on him again.>Try a different approach.

>>2212137"I thought Jotaro would be the one with bad luck against stand users after he lost the fishing bet, not me!" You mutter under your breath after grabbing a banana from the bag."All right. Now I'll tell you what to be careful when riding on camels." Joseph starts to explain. "They don't walk like horses. The front and back leg from the same side move forward together, so they tend to sway a lot..."While Joseph is explaining the do's and dont's, you notice that the banana you've been carrying is suddenly missing. Where did it go?Looking up to the camel behind you, you see him already gulping down the fruit before you could even offer it to him."Hey! You're not supposed to eat that yet!" You shout at him while everyone else is already getting up on their camels."I think there's one last fruit inside my backpack." Joseph says, prompting you to search inside it, only to find an eggplant."An eggplant? Why would you be carrying that around? It's not even a fruit!" You ask Joseph."Well, technically..." Kakyoin starts a lecture, only to be cut off when you realize the camel also snuck behind you to eat the eggplant."Argh! You little-- OW!" You point your hand at him, only for him to bit your finger too."Not fair..." You kneel on the ground and weep while the camel licks your salty tears."Good fucking grief..." You hear Jotaro say, but before you managed to respond back at him, you see that you're already riding the camel."How did she get there?" Joseph is confused after unknowingly witness Jotaro stopping time for such a simple task"There we go! Congratulations, Hitomi! Aren't you a great rider? You could be a jockey one day with that attitude." Jotaro's sarcastically comments, pretending to not have helped you out on that."Alright then. Everone! Onward to the Northwest!" Joseph points, only for all the camels to walk to another direction. "Hey! Hey! Hey!"(1/2)
>>2212212Aw, he did because we cried.
>>2212199No, Anon! BAD! Do you NOT remember the wasted crit?! Stop taunting the Dice Gods!>>2212212Jotaro you sassy fuck.
>>2212212Jotaro's weakness is Hitomi crying. Pff!
>>2212212Okay, so he saw us at our lowest.Ha...It seems he can stop time for around 2 seconds now?
>>2212229It's no laughing matter!
>>2212212>You could be a jockey one day with that attitude>SBR Hitomi on a camel confirmed?
>>2212212https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0svW2S1z2UcAfter what feels like an eternity, you manage to control the camel properly. After that, Joseph bought a few water bottles to restock on supplies so you could finally start your journey through Saudi Arabia."Come on Iggy! Jump!" You encourage the small dog to jump after you offer him a hand, but he just shrugs you off and uses the nearby sand to escalate himself to the camel's hump.It seems no one but you had a hard time with those camels.After a few hours walking through the desert, Kakyoin makes a particular comment that worries the group for the time being."Something's wrong. I can't shake the feeling that someone's watching us...""You worry too much, Kakyoin." Polnareff points at his camel's behind. "We're using palm leaves to cover our tracks, remember? And we can see a great distance around this desert, we would know if someone was around here.""Actually, I can't help but feel that way as well." Jotaro voices his worries after summoning Star Platinum to scout the place. "I can't quite put my finger on it, but something's definetly weird.""I'm more worried about this heat, though." You complain while wiping the sweat from your forehead. "What's the temperature, Pol?""50 Celsius." He checks the temperature.>Ask to scout the place with some binoculars.>Drink some water.>See if Kakyoin can find anyone.>Ask if Iggy is smelling anyone.>Write-in.
>>2212271>Ask to scout the place with some binoculars.>Ask if Iggy is smelling anyone.
>>2212271>Ask to scout the place with some binoculars.>Ask if Iggy is smelling anyone.>should we try the hamon sensing thing...?speaking of water, we could ask iggy to copress some sand in a block and convert that to more water, right? Also, we should ask the guys to give us a bottle of water to keep on us at all times.
>>2212271>Ask if Iggy is smelling anyone.With temperature starting to become a problem, we could do with being proactive about our water supply to make sure nobody dehydrates.We could turn KC's hand into water, and convert sand into water to refill canteens. We could probably also stand to convert decent amount of sand on the ground into a small little pond for the Camels and Iggy to drink from.
>>2212280And here I was hoping for some ice...Well, still could try later. I had that idea with hamon to draw heat away from things earlier, might be able to pull it off...
>>2212271>Ask if Iggy is smelling anyone.He could possibly smell the food Arabia Fats was eating, right?
>>2212274>>2212277>>2212280Taking a pair of binoculars from Jotaro, you scout the dunes far away into the desert, but nothing particularly interesting sticks out."Iggy!" You signal for him to check if he's smelling something. He woofs over to where the sun is, but you don't see anyone there."Is he smelling someone from far away?" Kakyoin can't really figure out what he's trying to say."Maybe it's just the heat tiring us out..." You summon Karma Chameleon to grab a water battle to cool you off."She's right, this temperature is no joke." Kakyoin wipes his brow, with Karma turning her hand into water to help him out as well."Let's get as far as we can until the sun goes down, then. We'll stop and put up our tents after we're done" Joseph tells the group. "It's too risky to travel at night.""But it's 50 degrees Celsius!" Polnareff empties his water bottle."I know, but it's always hottest around this time of the day--" He interrupts himself after double checking the time. "Jotaro, what does your watch say?""Ten after eight." Jotaro raises an eyebrow after his watch implied it was already night. "Hey, old man! The hell's going on here?""I don't get it... It's 8 PM, why isnt the sun going down?" Joseph asks after staring at the sun rising up."Woof! Woof" Most likely saying "I told you so!" Iggy conjures up a sand cave around the entire group, comfirming that the sun is indeed a stand.>Dig to make the cave bigger>Think of a way to look for the stand user.>Harden Iggy's sand.>Something else.
>>2212365>Harden Iggy's sand.>use it to make some water>Think of a way to look for the stand user.He has to be nearby somewhere. Unless its a long range stand... but under the assuption he's neaby, we'll have to look out for any caves or other such things
>>2212365>Harden Iggy's sand.>Make a small puddle of still water in the cave to use as a hamon radar
>>2212365>Harden Iggy's sand.>Think of a way to look for the stand user.
>Harden Iggy's sand.

>>2212436>>2212473>>2212476"The thermometer just jumped up to 80 degrees!" Polnareff shouts in terror as the heat becomes unbearable in a matter of seconds."He's planning on frying us alive!" Joseph exclaims."Not on my watch!" You use Karma Chameleon to turn Iggy's sand cave into a marble cave, making it harder for the sunlight to reach your friends.Despite the cave being hardened, a laser of magma comes crashing down inside the cave. Polnareff's Chariot manages to deflect it, but he knocks over a water canteen next to him."Oh, damn it!" He curses after realizing he wasted his only water source."That's fine, look at what I can do." You charge your Hamon on the water puddle around it to form your radar, which pointed towards a rock a few meters away from you."Is that where the stand is?" You deduce."Pfft!Heheheheheheehe!" After hearing that, Kakyoin suddenly starts to laugh."HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAH!" Jotaro follows soon after, you made fun of Jotaro for not showing that much emotion before, but seeing how weird his laugh is, maybe that's just for the best."Ahahahahahahahahaha!" Polnareff laughs along with the two, something that made Joseph and Iggy look away from outside the cave to the laughing trio.>What's so funny?>Laugh with them.>Ask Jotaro to attack the rock.>Ask Kakyoin to attack the rock.>Do a double check.>Write-in.
>>2212539>Laugh with them.>Ask Kakyoin to attack the """rock""".>captcha 'william hors'Oh my god, Hol Horse had a son named Billy Horse?

>>2212539>Laugh with them.>Ask Jotaro to attack the rock.
>>2212555>>2212570>>2212578"Teeheehehehehehehee" You laugh along with them, to the confusion of Joseph."I don't get it, what are you all laughing at?" Joseph scratches his head."Look at that rock over there, Mr. Joestar, isnt it just big enough for someone to hid behind?" Kakyoin points to the rock your Hamon detector found."What about it?" Joseph still has no clue on what he's talking about."There's a rock on the opposite side that looks exactly the same, but the shadow is mirrored to the other side.""I don't think he'll get it unless you attack the rock, Kakyoin." You quit your laughing fit."Alright then, Emerald Splash!" He summons his stand to attack the "rock", breaking the mirror that was reflecting the rock from far away."What? A hole appeared in the air." Joseph unsucessfully tries to figure out what's going on."Do I have to explain everything to you, old man? The user was reflecting the desert and tailing us from behind." Jotaro scolds his grandpa for making him explain the joke."It's so stupid! I can't believe it actually worked." Polnareff laughs as the sun fades out to be replaced with the moon."So we already beat the guy? Even though we barely saw his stand?" Joseph finally connects the dots."Yeah, I guess so." You say back to him.September 24th, 1988.Stand User: Arabia Fats.Stand Name: The Sun.Status: Retired.>What a dumb stand.>It wasn't that hard.>Are we riding the camels again?
>>2212651>What a dumb stand.>It wasn't that hard.>isn't dio a vampire? If this guy accidentally activated his stand in his presence, all our problems could be solved just like that.
>>2212651>"You guys think this guy's stand is lethal to vampires?">Check him for flesh buds
>>2212655Oh, also, more complaining about camel riding.
>>2212651>>2212655Comment offhandedly about Dio being weak to one of his subordinates.
>>2212655>>2212657"What a dumb stand, this was one of the shortest fights we've had so far!" You get out of Iggy's cave and approach the guy hiding behind a mirror and an air conditioner. "Do you think this guy's stand is lethal to vampires? Imagine if he just activated his stand in front of Dio and saved us the trouble of going to Egypt.""Nah, I don't think Dio would fall for this dumbass trick." Polnareff chuckles. "Whatever his stand does, it's probably better than this.""Still, should we check if he has a flesh bud on him?" You ask the group in case he needs help."I can't see any" Jotaro takes a closer look at him. "Either Dio wisened up and started placing those inside people's brains, or he's jus some asshole who got payed to kill us off. Either way, I'm not bothering with him.""Alright then, let's go back to the camels!" Kakyoin calls the camels to his side."But it's dangerous at night!" Joseph rejects his suggestion."Mr. Joestar, we already took care of the guy, we're in the clear." The frenchman attempts to calm the british grandpa."Camels!? Not again--" You already start to whine about having to deal with your camel again, but then you realize you're already on him again with Iggy."Damn it, Hitomi. No need to rush it up like this, you'll end up scaring the camels." Jotaro hides his helping hand by giving you a fake scold.Feeling reinvigorated after the fight, you patiently wait for them to get back on their camels to put your fist in the air and shout while you ride through the desert night."Next stop, Saudi Arabia!">To be continued...
>>2212748what a fucking bro
>>2212748Damn that Jotaro. He's going to give me diabetes.
I'll have one last session on this thread tomorrow since there's something magical about starting the Death 13 arc on thread 13. Feel free to discuss/ask anything until then.
>>2212748I missed the session, but goddamn is Jotaro a bro. Thanks for running, Dust!
>>2212808How's Dio feeling lately?Did our interactions with Steely Dan dredge up some old memories of his?Has his opinion on the cast changed much?
>>2212836Humbled. The way Hitomi's been handling stand users reminded him of what caused him to lose to Jonathan 100 years ago: Underestimating his opponents. He was pretty tired of searching for blood for the past few weeks, but now that he's close to a full recovery Dio is taking some time to breathe.It wasn't that similar to what happened to him.Now that he knows Avdol will be returning he plans on taking him out on Egypt with his remaining stand users. He's not taking any chances after how well Hitomi went along with Iggy.Dio always hated dogs so murdering one who happens to be your friend sounds particularly delightful for him He'll be calling a ceirtain priest to visit him for a second opinion now that he knows Jotaro can stop time.
>>2212912I see...so Dio's not only been accelerating his plans, but he's been feeding a lot more frequently to heal up with the lesser amount of time he has compared to canon. Cairo might have a really tense atmosphere by the time we arrive.
>>2212912Hypothetically speaking, how would DIO handle Ultimate Kars returning to Earth? Would he try and confront him or would he just grind his teeth and stay hidden until he thought of a good way to handle him?
>>2213159The outcome would be heavily situational. But let's just say that if Kars returned at present time, Dio would be more than ready to take him down since he'd likely pair up with his strongest ally.
>>2213227for a moment, I thought he was wearing one of those one-piece pajamas with a hoodie.
>>2213227Looking at it, Jotaro has a good chance of winning against Vanilla Ice. His time stop abilities might mean that everyone will be able to escape alive.Hitomi on the other hand... she might have some trouble with him.
>>2213297Seriously, we need to copy his stand sometime soon. Just to see how karma platinum would work.
>>2213299I think we should try out copying the stands of all of our allies. Would Heirophant Green make KC stretchy? Would Silver Chariot give a different defensive bonus depending on if we absorbed the outer armor or the inner layer? Would Iggy's stand simply turn Karma into normal particulate sand - or solid sandstone - or something else? Could, potentially, we have KC grow spikes all over herself by absorbing Hermit Purple?After we've tried all of those out...well...maybe we could try out [Synthesis] with different stand materials. No doubt it'd be even harder than using it on regular materials, though. Something else I want to do, too, is to challenge Iggy to a practice bout. Iggy hasn't had much experience against other stand users, as fierce as he may be - it could be good for him to learn what it's like. And it could help us to learn how to deal with unconventional stands that can't be directly harmed very easily, if at all. Who knows - maybe when Avdol gets back, we can have a 3v3 match. We can also try out some 2v2's...or a 2v3, if we wanted to unfairly pit our current group up against Water KC and The Fool. Hard as fuck pairing to beat.
>>2213610Yeah. Combing stand materials has to be hard as hell. Probably close to final level hitomi attempts there, when we get A in precision.
>>2212651>"What? A hole appeared in the air." Joseph unsucessfully tries to figure out what's going on.Old fool, he did the same thing with Stratzo, or what was the name of Hamon Master turned Vampire?
>>2213857Straizo. Or Straights. Or Straitzo. Depending on what you read/watch.
>>2213227Yes...him and that stand are undeniably powerful.
Starting another session in 2 hours, hope to see you guys here.
>>2214866IT'S ALMOST TIME TO...
>>2214962Open The Game!
>>2212748September 25th, 1988.You spent the last day and half of this one walking around the desert in those stupid camels. Fortunately, you managed to find civilization before the sun was down."Is that Yarpline?" Polnareff points to the collection of buildings down the road."Yup, I'm pretty sure they have a few hotels close to where the planes are being sold too." Joseph points out.After getting out of their camels and finding a good hotel, the crusaders guide you to a fancy building's reception."Hey Polnareff, Do you mind if I room with you this time?" Kakyoin asks his french companion. "I'm always rooming with Jotaro, so I figured I should change things up this time around.""Alright, but don't touch my hair gel without my permission, ok? My hair takes a lot of time to get done." Polnareff combs his unconventional hairdo.You've been used to rooming with the white haired man with receded hairline, so this might turn out to change things up for you too..."In that case, I'll room with...">Iggy.>Joseph.>Jotaro.
>>2215103>>2215109>>2215120"In that case, I'll room with Iggy." You point to the small dog eating coffee gum on the ground. It would be good to spend some time with him now that he's warmed up to you."Woof!" He barks with a neutral expression, not really seeming to care on who he stays with. "That means I'll stick with the Old Man." Jotaro picks the safe option."I'll be buying the Cessna tomorrow, so enjoy the rest, folks." Joseph takes off his hat to inform the group of his plans."Try not to miss me, Hitomi!" Polnareff jokes, opening up the door to Kakyoin's room....After having a meal and unpacking your things, you notice its still 7 PM, since you still have a couple hours to spend.Is there anything particular you should do in your free time?>Interact with Iggy.>Look for another crusader to talk to.>Practice your Hamon.>Call your friends for a spar outside.
>>2215146>Interact with Iggy.
>>2215146>Interact with Iggy>Call your friends for a spar outsideLet's go with yesterday's group fight idea
>>2215146>>2215156This.Try to see of we can absorb / copy stand powers as well.
>>2215150>>2215156Since you're not feeling sleepy, you decide to kill some time interacting with your canine roomate."Hey Iggy, could you summon The Fool for a second?" You ask.He doesn't really know why you are asking this, but ultimately complies, curious to see what you have in mind.As the sand stand is conjured up before your eyes, you summon Karma Chameleon and try absorbing the sand the mechanical stand lifted up, which works about as well as you would expect.It has the same effect as absorbing water: nigh unvulnerability, but no offensive capabilities and difficulty to mantain the form to balance it out, you test it by only absorbing it up to Karma's arms, but you still feel a bit sore either way.You strain your arms a bit, trying to create something out of sand like The Fool does, but seeing that nothing's really happening, you give up and restore Karma to her default form.Still, absorbing other stands is something you should always have in mind, especially when fighting enemy stand users.That does gives you a good idea, too......After calling everyone outside the hotel, you express that you're curious about testing everyone's stand capabilities, and what better way to do so than to spar as a group?"Are you sure? I might not be able to keep up depending on how this goes..." Joseph summons Hermit Purple, reminding you that despite managing to read minds along with other psychic abilities, his stand is pretty much a bunch of thorny ropes."That's ok though, I have a good plan to make things up." You start explaining how this will go down. >Let's fight as a tag team, with 3 groups of 2.>Let's fight as a tag team, with 2 groups of 3.>We'll fight individually, like a tournament.>Write-in.

>>2215281>>2215287No problem, I just wanted to confirm what I would write.>Let's fight as a tag team, with 2 groups of 3.We'll see how this turns out now.
>>2215230>>2215231>>2215278>>2215281"We'll fight as a tag team, with 2 groups of 3." You propose your plan to the team. "The first one to give up or be incapacitated will be out."Sounds fair." Kakyoin seems to be fine with that idea."I'll do it on one condition, though." Jotaro raises his finger. "I will be going against you, we do want to keep this balanced, afterall.""Ok then." You give him a confident grin "I haven't beat you in a spar yet, so this will be my time to shine!""We'll see about that, pick your team, I'll stick with the ones left." Jotaro waits for you to choose two out of the four other combatants in this spar.>Kakyoin.>Polnareff.>Joseph.>Iggy.
>>2215332>Joseph>IggyWe can make do with the underdogs kek with the power of great rolls!
>>2215332>Joseph.>Iggy.I can already see PLENTY of shenanigans available here to give us the edge. Hiding Hermit Purple within The Fool, for instance, to give a spiky surprise when it attacks...Oh yes.
>>2215332>Joseph.>Iggy.Beating kakyoin AND Jotaro? It's like a dream that won't possibly come true!
>>2215336>>2215347>>2215348>>2215373"I'll pick Iggy and Mr. Joestar then." You surprise everyone in the group by your odd comp choice."Are you sure about that?" Even Jotaro was taken aback by your choice."You must be underestimating us if you think I can't win with them." You keep your confidence shining through. "It takes more than strength and abilities to win stand fights, remember?"Iggy also looks pretty happy, but that's probably because that means he has a chance to humiliate Polnareff if he plays his cards right."She's right, I can still use my hamon to take you down, Jotaro!" Joseph is pumped to hear your response, reminding himself of his earlier days."Ok then... Kakyoin, Polnareff." He calls The Hierophant and The Chariot to his side.Now that both teams are complete, you walk a few steps back with Iggy and Joseph as they summon their stands one after another.Jotaro's time stopping behemoth, Polnareff's hypersonic Chariot and Kakyoin's fierce sniper VS Your four armed dancer, Iggy's sand robot and Joseph's rosy thorns mixed up with his Hamon abilities.This will be the perfect time to see everyone in action. However, that means that they'll probably do their best to not lose, regardless of which user you chose, this would be a pretty trick battle..."GO!" You shout as everyone draws their stands at the same time.>Focus on Polnareff.>Focus on Kakyoin.>Focus on Jotaro.
>>2215409>Focus on Jotaro.We're going to have to. Sand can probably slow chariot down, purple is a good match vs green, and we can at least stand rush jotaro for a bit.Speaking of, if we can, we should to try grapple his stand and absorb it
>>2215409>Focus on Kakyoin.
>>2215409>Focus on PolnareffThe other two can hinder Jotaro and push Kak, Pol has to be taken out quickly and who better for the job?
Rolled 3 (1d3)>>2215409Ah fuck, I'm fuckin torn. I'll let the gods decide for me- 1 Polnareff, 2 Kakyoin, 3 Jotaro
>>2215409>JotaroCan we passively activate KC's absorb ability so it'd absorb part of SP's ability to move in stopped time?

>>2215469『Under Pressure』has now been activated.
>>2215469Hitomi doesn't know the meaning of 'mercy'.
>>2215469Do you feel it...? The [pressure]...? It's rising...
>>2215469Can he smell what the Karma is cooking?!
>>2215469>Always 90+ against potato
>>2215466>>2215467>>2215469"Charioooot!" Polnareff is the first to attack, aiming straight at The Fool. What would be an astonishing combo of slashes turns out to be for nothing, considering Iggy's stand is just a pile of sand."Oh No--!" Polnareff is about to steal Joseph's catchphrase, but is interrupted by Iggy's sand being fired at him like a machine gun."Khooooooooh...." Joseph charges his Hamon in place while staring straight at Kakyoin."Emerald...." Kakyoin charges his barrage of emeralds, expecting to be the first to draw his attack."Hermit Purple!" The old man suddenly draws his stand to restrain Hierophant Green's hands. "And, Hamon!" He transfers his Hamon energy straight to his stand, electrocuting Kakyoin's stand while he suffers the damage.Since both of them already seem to be dealing with their respective oponnents, you walk towards Jotaro with your stand ready to strike at him, with him and Star Platinum doing the same."ORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORA!" He managed to throw his powerful punches with little effort."KORESOREKORESORE!" You parry each punch he does with perfection, but they're obviously taking a toll on you considering you haven't absorbed anything before fighting."Star Finger!" He temporarily stops his punches to extend his finger to stab your stand, making Karma fall back and lose her balance."Psych!" as your stand falls down, you manage to use Karma Chameleon's legs to kick Star Platinum on his chin while Jotaro's guard was down."Good grief..." Jotaro wipes the blood you drew on him with his jacket, staring at you with a determined look.>Try to absorb Star Platinum.>Keep your offensive stance.>Be more defensive, he's up to something.
>>2215542>>Try to absorb Star Platinum.I hope CHILL doesn't activate now
>>2215542>Try to absorb Star Platinum.But wait, there's more! While we absorb the material, we should convert a small area of Star Platinum, where we touch, into Marble. He'll have to play it safely after that if he doesn't want to hurt himself.
>>2215542>Try to absorb Star Platinum.

>>2215573>>2215574>>2215576"I see. You can overdrive me pretty easily since your stand is directly connected into your body..." Kakyoin analyses his current situation after recovering from the shock. "But that won't stop me from attacking either, Emerald SplaaAAAAAAAAAaaa--"BAM!Kakyoin's emerald barrage is completely wasted since Joseph musters all of his strength to lift Kakyoin up into the air with his stand and fling him to a wall, making him collapse from the unexpected attack."Looks like I still got some fighting spirit in me!" He proudly boasts while the schoolboy is seeing stars after recieving the blow."Get a hold of this!" Polnareff starts to turn the tides with Iggy after taking his armor off, throwing every pile of sand away from him with his sword, effectively countering Iggy's attacks and positioning himself closer to the dog.Joseph obviously wants to hel Iggy now that he's on the recieving end, but knowing that fighting a rapier with thorns wouldn't be a splendid idea, he waits for an opportunity to strike."Got ya!" Your stand grabs Star Platinum's arm with one set of hands."ORA!" Jotaro quickly turns your plan down by punching her back with his free arm, sending Karma flying towards the ground.The attack hits you like a tank since you weren't protected by any extra shielding, but you're not down for the count since he didn't use his full force on that punch."I'm not falling for that, Hitomi. You should know that by now." Jotaro approaches your fallen stand. "I would ask you to give up now, but knowing you, it's likely not over yet.">Try to absorb him again.>Take some distance from him.>Prepare an overdrive while he's focusing on Karma.>Something else.
>>2215627>Try to absorb him again.
>>2215627>Try to absorb him again.>Kakyoin is still jobbing I don't know what I expected
>>2215627>Prepare an overdrive while he's focusing on Karma.
>>2215627>Try to absorb him again.Since were closing in on DIO we need to start thinking of a way to defend ourself while in time stop if we go against DIO, Joseph had a great idea of covering himself with Hamon and his stand, can we do something like that as well like MAX HARDNESS surrounded by Hamon so we won't get knifed to the throat?
>>2215627>Back off with Karma and have her scoop up handfulls of dirt, convert them to marble, and fire them off one after the other nonstop at Jotaro. But, after a few moments of doing this, suddenly toss two in a different direction - directly at Polnareff, who is focusing on his own fight.Remember, in a 3v3 the goal is for the team to win, not the individual! If we can all gang up on Jotaro, we might be able to finish this much easier.

>>2215665 >>2215666 >>2215667After dodging all of The Fool's attacks, Silver Chariot catches Iggy with his hands and forces him to stand still for 3 seconds."There! Immobilized!" He's satisfied to best the dog that has been pestering him for so long. "Now I only have to deal with Mr. Jo--""Zoom Punch!" Joseph extends his right arm to punch Polnareff's nape, knocking him down head first into the sand."Argh! Mr. Joestar! When the hell did you learn to do that?" Polnareff stops the fight to ask him a valid question."It's been a while, but I still got the hang of it." Joseph thinks out loud, not really answering The Chariot's question. "Now, come at me, Pol!""Silly Jotaro, you know me too well." You make Karma jump into the air in an attempt to catch Star Platinum's hands. Seeing what you planned on doing, he grabs your wrists before you could even get close to him and pins your stand into the ground with his."I'm ready to stop when you are, Hitomi." Jotaro shows his point by immobilizing your wrists, not wanting to escalate things any further and hurt you in the process.You can't actually see how Joseph is doing, but knowing who he's up against, he probably won't last long. You're already having a hard time with one stand, let alone two.>Alright, you win.>Try to copy Joseph's punch.>Turn Karma into sand.>Try to reach Star Platinum's arm.

Fucking rip. Ah well, I hope we learn the Zoom Punch at the very least. Though it's looking like we're going to break our arm at this point. Gotta remember to spread out your rolls to deal with 4chan's dice.
>>2215779For FUCKS SAKE.STOP IT.
>>2215779>Finally think I got here early enough to roll>I got this insteadRIPtomi
>>2215799You can roll instead of me. I've been rolling fairly bad since october for some reason.I always rolled high before then, but now my luck's in a huge downward spiral.
Hey look a the bright side, at least DIO isn't seeing anything new from us so he can prepare for it, it'd fuck him over when we pull it out of our ass later :V
>>2215826Plus, even if we didn't do too well ourselves, we did make the other crusaders stronger through training, which is just as good. Need everyone to be at their best by the time we get to Egypt.
>>2215768>>2215770>>2215773What Joseph did really seemed like an interesting technique. He appears to have dislocated his own arm to extend his reach while numbing the pain with Hamon and using it to bring his arm back to normal.Jotaro sure will be in for a surprise...You arch your back, breathe deeply, close your fist and....SNAP!"AAAAARGH!" You scream in pain after dislocating your shoulder."Whoa! Cut the match!" Polnareff unsummons his Chariot after hearing your pain."For fuck's sake... I know something like this would happen." Jotaro approaches you and uses Star Platinum's precision to place your joint back in it's place. "That's enough fighting for today, we're going to bed!"Seeing how Jotaro got upset at you for not knowing when to call it quits, you lower your head and comply, going back to your room, where Joseph treats your injury with his own Hamon, along with the help of a first aid kid....September 26th, 1988.You're woken up by Iggy biting at your shoe, a bit more delicate than barking in your ear, but still pretty startling.You try to move your arm to see that it's already healed, although somewhat sensitive.>Thanks, Iggy.>Don't ruin my shoe!>Where are the others?>Write-in.
>>2215853>Thanks, Iggy.>Where are the others?
>>2215853>Thanks, Iggy>Where are the others?
>>2215853>Thanks, Iggy.>Where are the others?Oh boy.Death 13 time?
>>2215862>>2215866>>2215868>>2215884>>2215885"Thanks, Iggy." You say to the dog after waking up. "Where are the others, though?"Iggy sniffs around the room for a few seconds before jumping out the window down to the streets below."Hey, wait! I can't run that fast!" You say as you follow him down the stairs.Running after the dog, you reach the place where Joseph said to be selling planes, with a tired Kakyoin holding a baby."Hey, Hitomi..." He blurts out, barely keeping his eyes open."Is your arm better now?" Joseph asks.Jotaro visibly frowns after seeing you arrive with Iggy, while Polnareff is pretending to fly the airplane.>I'm feeling a lot better now, thanks.>What's wrong, Kakyoin?>What's this baby for?>Apologize to Jotaro.>Write-in.
>>2215961>I'm feeling a lot better now, thanks.>What's this baby for?>Apologize to Jotaro.We really thought we could do it T~T it didn't even feel like we'd overexerted ourselves or anything...
>>2215961>>I'm feeling a lot better now, thanks.>What's this baby for?Maybe we should apologize later, nows a bad time maybe
>>2215961>I'm feeling a lot better now, thanks.>What's wrong, Kakyoin?>What's this baby for?
>>2215961>I'm feeling a lot better now, thanks.>Ask Kakyoin who the lucky lady isCan't believe our friend's a dad already. They grow up so fast.Anyways, after we're done ribbing Kak,>Apologize to Jotaro.
>>2215961>I'm feeling a lot better now, thanks.>What's this baby for?>Apologize to Jotaro>Acknowledge that you dun goofed.Guy was probably super worried but doesn't know how to emote it properly.Also how the fuck do we beat DEATH?
>>2215994Turn a part of our body to metal or something and go to sleep? Maybe make our arm into a Star Platinum arm or something? admittedly, we've tried turning living parts into inanimate objects and change them back with success, but we have yet to test ethereal objects like stands, it could be passed off as science/ability testing, tho we might be scolded for testing on ourselves, we also don't know how our stand works while we sleep, seeing as Karma seems to be very vaguely automatic or has a very, very low level of consciousness to itself
>>2215994Let Kak be useful for the first time
>>2215970>>2215978>>2215994"I'm feeling a lot better after you helped me out, Mr. Joestar." You say to the Cessna pilot. "Thanks.""Anytime, Hitomi!" He gives you a thumbs up."Goo,goo!" The baby calls for your attention."Oh, Kakyoin! You were going to be a dad all this time and never told us?" You tease him by implying the baby is his."H-Hey, that's not what happened!" Kakyoin goes from sleepy to flustered after hearing your implications. "We got into an argument with a lady who wanted to treat her sick baby, so we offered to help him get to the next city with us.""Oh, I see..." You quit joking with him for now."I'm a bit worried to fly here since we'd be vulnerable for a stand attack..." Joseph expresses his worries."Cmon, Mr. Joestar! No one would send their stand after us in the air, we even made sure the plane wasn't a stand before buying it." Polnareff says. "Just get in already, the faster we get to Egypt, the less you'll have to worry about that."After Joseph and Kakyoin get on the plane, you signal over to Jotaro to apologize to him."Jotaro... I'm sorry if I made you worry about me yesterday." You look down and scratch the of your head, telling your sincere apology to your classmate. "I shouldn't have done that, I'm really sorry..."For some reason, he eyes you up for a few seconds before saying. "Let's just get on the plane."Was he trying to see if you were lying? Was he just checking if you were okay? Both, Maybe? This one is kinda hard to tell...(1/2)
>>2216097He gave a few good assists so far as well as taking out The Empress and The Sun. At this point he's doing better than canon.
>>2216107Let's wait til N'doul to see if he's actually doing better.
>>2216098The Cessna is incredibly cramped!It clearly was made with 4 people in mind, not 5. the fact that you're carrying a baby and a dog in it probably doesn't make it any better.Kakyoin and Polnareff are taking a nap with you on the backseat while Joseph has Iggy in his lap with Jotaro to his side.You promised to take care of the baby, but this flight is so boring you'll have to do something else to stay awake until you get to the Red Sea.>Take a nap, what's the worst that could happen?>Stay awake, the baby might need something.
>>2216153Best we discover, and connect the dots immediately>Take a nap, what's the worst that could happen?
>>2216153>Take a nap, what's the worst that could happen?
>>2216153>Take a nap, what's the worst that could happen?You know...I was just wondering. Would your training accelerate if you learned how to hamon breath while asleep? I'm inclined to think it might, from a meta standpoint, because Joseph and Caesar totally had to hamon breath 24/7 even when they were asleep, and a month of that gave them damn good progress. Alongside other things, of course. But still...be it now or later, maybe we should consider trying to pick up the skill at some point.
>>2216176Could try some meditation techniques while going to sleep. Close our eyes and hamon breathe until we either fall asleep, hopefully still doing that, or until morning arrived. Who knows how that might turn out though. Maybe we can ask when Avdol arrives
>>2216160>>2216167>>2216174>>2216175>>2216176You decide to lean back and close your eyes on Karma Chameleon's shoulder, making her absorb the seats for some extra cushioning while you drift off to sleep....It's dark. You eyes are wide open, but you only see darkness around you, weird...After you hear a faint sound of a baby crying, a blinding light makes the darkness disappear.After your eyes get accostumed to the lighting, you figure out where exactly you are."An amusement park?" You mutter to yourself, noticing you're sitting down on a roller coaster ride.Cool! You've only been to a place like this once with your parents back in Tokyo, it's good to finally have a good dream for once.Strangely enough, you canstill here the baby's crying echoing towards the ferris wheel.>Sit down and see if the ride will start. You're on a theme park afterall.>Try to find the baby.
>>2216235>>Try to find the baby.
>>2216235>Wait a minute, you realized you're dreaming, yeah? Which means it's a lucid dream now. Try to do something cool, like Fly.>Try to find the baby.
>>2216235>Try to find the baby.
>>2216235>>2216249ThisAlso see if you can summon KC in Dream Land.
>>2216246>>2216249>>2216251>>2216255Wait. This is really a dream, right?Making the mental image of an ice cream, you see a chocolate sundae poof right on your hand. Giving it a few licks to see if you can actually taste it, you come to the realization that this is a dream, without a shadow of a doubt."Wheee!"Jumping from the rollercoaster, you start flying through the sky like Peter Pan, doing a few loop-the-loops while trying to find the baby.Hearing the cry a lot clearer in the ferris wheel, you decide to approach it in order to check hat was happening there.There appears to be two men having an argument on one of the cabins, but you can't make their appearance clear from up there, maybe flying down a bit would help...Wait, why are you falling down? That's not what you wanted to do!"Hey, Hitomi!" You hear Polnareff's voice waking you up from your dream. "Could you help me out with the baby? I need to change his diapers."Coming up to your senses, you realize that you are still on the plane with everyone else. It couldn't be more than a few minutes since you started your nap.What were you dreaming about again? You can't seem to remember...Nevermind that, let's answer Polnareff first.>Hold the baby while he changes his diapers.>Did you really had to wake me up for that?>Why not call Kakyoin for it?>Write-in.
>>2216337>>Hold the baby while he changes his diapers.
>>2216337>Hold the baby while he changes his diapers.
>>2216337>Hold the baby while he changes his diapers.>Mention you had the weirdest dreams where you had an ice cream, and flew in an amusement park
>>2216364We don't remember the dream
>>2216337>Hold the baby while he changes his diapers.>while we're doing that, see if there's anything at all we can remember
>>2216351>>2216353After a short yawn, you take a look at the baby, who Polnareff is holding upside down by his legs."Polnareff! That's not how you hold a baby!" You scold your friend for mistreating him."How would i know?""I've played with dolls until I was 9! How dare you treat him like this in front of an expert?" You grab the baby from him and turn his head up, placing one hand in his torso and another one on his head."I'm...Sorry?" He apparently doesn't seem to understand what's so special about the way you hold the baby. "Anyway, hold him still while I pin his diaper."While you're busing holding the baby, you notice Kakyoin is whimpering beside you, apparently having a bad dream."NO! STOP! GET AWAY FROM ME!" He suddenly screams, flailing around the plane."What's wrong, Kakyoin?" Jotaro looks back, only to see the pink hairred boy kick Joseph straight in the face, temporarily making him lose control of the plane."Crap!" Joseph curses after seeing the Cessna he just bought spiraling down into the ground."We're not going to crash again, are we?" Jotaro groans."Woof!" Iggy seems to panic while Jotaro tries to hold him still."What is it with him? He was like that this morning, too!" Polnareff dodges the punches Kakyoin unconsciously throws at him."Whatever, just try to calm him down!" Joseph says while trying to save the plane.>Try to wake Kakyoin up.>Keep holding the baby.
>>2216473>Try to wake Kakyoin up.If we do crash, that's not necessarily the end of the Cessna. We could always try to use Karma's abilities to change damaged metal into something malleable to put things back into place and change back into the original material.
>>2216473>Try to wake Kakyoin up.>Keep holding the baby.We can do both, if we send karma over to hold him down and try to wake him up, I think.
>>2216502Backing this, if it's possible
>>2216492>>2216502>>2216530Last roll of the session! Let's see if it makes up for the previous fuck ups.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>2216533
>>2216539d-does this make up for the late roll earlier
>>2216539>first sign something fishy going on>hitomi hard crits [Under Pressure] is just a meme... right? ....right?
>>2216578Nothing can stop [Under Pressure], anon!
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>2216580Let's see if this roll can stop [Under Pressure]
Rolled 27 (1d100)>>2216533If you need a third roll, then here it is.
>>2216578Under pressure coupled with Hitomi's maternal instincts is too powerful
>>2216539>>2216593>>2216598Nothing can beat「Under Pressure」
>>2216539>>2216593>>2216598"STOP! PLEASE! STOP!" Kakyoin keeps flailing about, almost hitting the baby in the process."KNOCK IT OFF!" You hit Kakyoin with Karma's four handed slaps, instantly waking him up."Wh-What's going on?" The confused highschooler is startled after seeing the plane almost crashing down."You got him!" Polnareff congratulates you for waking him up, making it easier for Joseph to focus on the Cessna."Screw it, Hermit Purple!" Joseph uses his stand to override the plane's controls, sucessfuly making it fly again. "Yes! I did it! Just in time.""Did we really almost get into another plane crash, Old Man?" Jotaro scoffs. "This is why I'm never going on a plane with you again.""To be fair, the blame isn't really on him..." You give a sour look to Kakyoin."Yeah! What's wrong with you, Kakyoin? You almost got us killed!" Polnareff scolds him for daydreaming."I'm sorry! I didn't mean to do that! It's just--" Kakyoin starts to explain himself before you unexpectedly jump into the driver's seat."Watch out for the palm tree!" You take the control wheel to protect the plane, and by proxy the baby from getting blown to smitherines."Good to know Hitomi's paying more attention on piloting than you, Gramps." Jotaro jokes after seeing your impulsive reaction."You know Hitomi, if this isn't proof that you will be a great mom when you grow up, I don't know what is." Joseph takes his eyes back to the sky.After about an hour, Joseph makes a stop in another village to safely deliver the baby to a hospital, just like his mother intended. After that, he took off again, only stopping when reaching the city of Jeddah, where a SpeedWagon foundation had a boat ready to take the group to a small island where the submarine would arrive.Everyone slept soundly that day, except Kakyoin.September 26th, 1988.Stand User: Mannish Boy.Stand Name: Death 13.Status: Safe.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSfqNEvykv0>To be continued...
>>2216722>Kakyoin never gets his one fight were he doesn't jobbeing kak is suffering
>>2216722Man, that was a pretty significant skip. We saved a LOT of time by saving the Cessna.And, on the bright side, now nobody ever thought that Kakyoin was going off the deep end. They just think he has night terrors instead. Which is understandable, with all this stress everyone's under.
>>2216722Also I realize we completely skipped the Genesis arc because of this
>>2216722>Death 13>Status: IGNOREDTarot card was desth, but hitomi just straight up walked by that completely unknowingly.
>>2216722Thanks for running Dust!Will Kakyoin suffer from nightmares from now on?
>>2216732Well, if he survives the last fight he might help a lot on part 4, since that team was very lacking of long range stands.>>2216744Maybe Dust will give him another chance and we'll get a round two, who knows?
>>2216744...also, her card WAS death, wasn't it? Just realized...
>>2216744We did get Death in that fortune telling, mayhaps our fates cancelled one another out...
>>2216760Makes it all the more funnier that we trivialized the death fight tbqh>>2216722Dust, any changes on character opinions? (Including Dio's if possible)
In any case we only have two more hurdles left until we get to Egypt unless someone hard crits again
>>2216748Thanks for being here, Anon. This was my favourite thread just for the amount of funny shit that happened.Nah, but he's feeling pretty guilty about almost crashing the Cessna.>>2216742Did I? IIRC the fight with Genesis happened while Iggy was with Pet Shop. I didn't find a good scan of the novel to add to the Quest and it's been a while since I've read it so I could be wrong on that though.
>>2216763Yeah, thats what I was talking about>>2216772Yeah, I was just pointing out that among the personal headcanon for appearance, most just go with pic related, who also has a special relationship with the death tarot.It's like pottery.
>>2216784The wiki says it happened soon after the Ndoul fight but i'm fine if you retcon it to be then
>>2216733After doing the math, we've saved approximately 4-5 days on trip so far, I think. Which, while not seeming significant, is actually pretty good.What's considerably more important than how fast we're doing things, however, is how good of a condition everyone's been in so far. We haven't been worn down to a level that we can't easily recover with a day or two of rest. And remember, every day that we win is one less day that Dio has to prepare and recover with. One less day that Dio has developed his stand's power.
>>2216784Hey Dust, d you plan on expanding the SPW more then it was in canon as a deus ex
>>2216772Y'all got some good points on the group for saving the plane, but Jotaro wants to have a word with Hitomi, preferably in private.Dio's definetly killing that kid after dealing with the Crusaders.
>>2216722>be on a plane >be on a plane with possible enemy stand users>be on a plane with possible enemy stand users with a baby>be on a plane with possible enemy stand users with a baby and kakyoin possibly affected by said enemy stands>be on a plane with possible enemy stand users with a baby and kakyoin possibly affected by said enemy stands with joseph taking control of the planeNo wonder [Under Pressure] activated!
>>2216784Did any of our team members learn anything important from the fights?I'm hoping that Iggy gleaned something about what it is to fight stands, since he hasn't actually done it much at all before. It was also nice to see Joseph getting his confidence about his fighting skills back. I think he underestimates what his hamon and stand combined can do.
>>2216835>Jotaro wants to have a word with Hitomi, preferably in private.That would be a wonderfull start to the "Star" Social link.
>>2216846I'm pretty sure at this point we have social links with all the crusaders
>>2216846I fear it may be more on the side of he now finds himself caring about us too much and doesn't want us to finish this journey or something along those lines. Hes a smart guy though, so he knows it's better for all of us to stick together since Dio's got a personal vendetta against the entire group. So maybe he just wants to gripe at us for being an idiot or something?
>>2216864Yeah you are right. It's just my brain stopped working. I was meant to say romance.>>2216879Or he want to talk about his feelings. How he loves dolphins
>>2216832Depends on how interested everyone is about the company, but I definetly have a handful of events planned if that's the case.>>2216843Jotaro learned you can be a bit stubborn when things don't go your way.Polnareff feels a lot more comfortable fighting without his armor now despite the major durability drop he recieves.Kakyoin learned that blindly doing the same attack against an enemy isnt a smart thing to do.Joseph will try to be more proactive now that he can do a thing or two with his stand.Iggy's Iggy.>>2216864I think it's pretty easy to speculate how close Hitomi is to each group member without me directly saying it now that she's had plenty of interaction with everyone.
Thread 14 will be Saturday since I'll be taking a small break, so have this fun poll in the meantime.http://www.strawpoll.me/14804465
>>2216956>no hitomi's ethics and morals option
>>2216965So just Hitomi.
>>2216956>0% think jotaro dies top kekalso don't forget to archive boss.
>>2217155Will do, thanks for reminding me.
>>2217206If Iggy does end up surviving, will he be present in Part 4? How will you treat his aging process, will he be old as hell (since there's 11 years between Part 3 and Part 4) or will his lifespan be at least slightly extended due to his nature as a Stand user?
>>2217900Stand user or not, he's still a dog. He'll have to be really lucky to still be around when Vento Aureo comes along
https://pastebin.com/L1hEQSWgYou guys feel like reading an old man's sob story?
>>2218028Hamon breathing doggo when?
>>2218285I see...So the dio we face might have a less potent time stop, but be considerably trickier physically.
>>2218285Oh dear.Man, dust, you just love raising deathflags, don't ya?
>>2218579I sure am. The poll was mostly for me to decide on who I should write the next few events, though.I'm more into difficulty spikes if you ask me.
>>2218747Will the age old question of "Is it possible to fuck stands? be answered in this quest?
>>2218796Don't count on it.
Hitomid To Do list:0. Protect her smile.1. Reject humanity.2. Awaken herself as a Mistress.3. Make Joseph Young Again.4. Clone Jonatan.5. Absorb some Stands.6. Don't be a Door.
>>2219591>Rejecting humanity instead of transcending itPleb-tier 0/10Hitomi must become the next logical step in humanity's evolution
>>2219620That would be part 2. But for that we need slaves.
>>2219637Depending on what we do in the down time between parts 3 and 4, we could have at least 1 Hitomi Clone, assuming the organ creation thing works to that degree.Though assuming we're riding the Jotaro Train, its more likely we'll be doing ocean research stuff with him, on a side note, being able to take smaller samples and replicate them on a humanoid scale makes Karma Chameleon real good for science, its just a really good science stand all around really
>>2218389DIO with a 3-second timestop but back at his Vampiric peak would be harder to deal with than Vanilla DIO, I think.1.) He'll be able to make zombies and hybrid zombie minions.2.) He'll be able to laugh off most of any physical injury. In part 1, he wasn't drastically affected by being partially bisected and showed that he can re-attach severed limbs without needing to drink blood. Star Platinum's punches to his head would probably still be able to stun him, but they wouldn't reduce him to a crawling desperate mess who needs to grab on to a speeding car to avoid dying.

>>2218870Hey Dust, if Jonathan Joestar was holding DIO back all of this time, then he was probably at least subconsciously aware of his presence right?Does that mean that somewhere deep inside, DIO feels a twinge of regret/sadness for Jonathan's final departure? Dio seemed to have a lot of respect for Jonathan after his near-death experience.
>>2219726>DIO with a 3-second timestop but back at his Vampiric peak would be harder to deal with than Vanilla DIO, I think.>DIO finally remembers he can do space ripper stingy eyes>TPK
>>2219903Dio liked Jon in his own twisted way, so he's feeling relieved to put his adoptive brother out of his misery.
