You'd think your name unimportant, Guardsman, and that no officer of a higher station would need to remember it. You'd be wrong. After all, you are Joachim Joestar, a young man hailing from a planet known as Stella Platina, rediscovered and annexed to the Imperium not a millennium ago, but already having a reputation for producing excellent (if tactically unorthodox) Imperial Guard Regiments.Even so, from birth, much was expected from you. After all, you possess the 「Star-Shaped Birthmark」on the nape of your neck; it is said those who possess it are descended from Saint Jonathan, a holy man whose anointed fists brought the Emperor's Light to the vile and foul who abandoned their humanity, mercifully purifying their corrupt spirits. Those who possess the 「Star-Shaped Birthmark」are said to be destined to great deeds.However, Joachim Joestar...no, JoJo. This does not tell us anything about who you truly are. What is your past?[Roll 1d8]1. 「Aspiring Gentleman」2. 「Noble Maverick」3. 「Imposing Student」4. 「Small Town Podunk」5. 「Gang Star」6. 「Caged Bird」7. 「Exiled Rider」8. 「Forgotten」
>>27535107>Aspiring GentlemanGotta go with the classics.
Rolled 2>>27535161>Roll 1d8Forgive me, I am retarded this morning. ROLLIN
Rolled 2>implying men of the Joestar bloodline would not be space marines
>>27535161Whoah, hold on there, Speedwagon. You have killer taste, but you must roll for it.Once enough results are accumulated, the number that repeated itself the most decides the result. (Also forgot my trip)
Rolled 8Come on, maverick or podunk!
Rolled 1Lets do this!
Rolled 2, 1 = 3YEAH.
>>27535107This is a good idea and you should feel good.
Rolled 4Dammit. Why do I have to be at work!? Rolling anyway.
>>27535201>>27535217[WE BATTLE TENDENCY NOW]「Noble Maverick」By genealogy, you truly are of noble birth, yet the assets that your family own are nothing compared to those during your Grandfather's generation. Seeking to start anew after your father's mysterious death and mother's disappearance, your Grandmother and your Grandfather's best friend took you from your birthplace and brought you to the first Hive City on your world, still under construction. As your grandfather, too, was called "JoJo" by his friends, just like you, your Grandmother and "Uncle" have come to call you「Hive City's JoJo」. Your father was part of the PDF, and you follow his footsteps, much to your Grandmother's chagrin. However, she respects your wishes. A couple of years later, you are transferred to the esteemed 02nd Stella Platina Regiment, the "Battlers" during a reinforcement operation. You are currently in transport to the planet where the 02nd Regiment is combating the foul Ork menace.You carry a long, flowing scarf wherever you go. It was knit for you by your grandmother, and you even wear it together with your Guardsman's uniform. Perhaps due to your birthmark, your superiors overlooked this particular breach of dress code during PDF training, but who knows what will happen when you meet a Comissar? Now, roll 1d8 for Demeanour:1. 「Kind Gentlefellow」2. 「Incorregible Trickster」3. 「Stoic Giant」4. 「Young and Brash」5. 「Clever and Passionate」6. 「Hot-Headed」7. 「Dark Will Bearer」8. 「Nostalgic Noble」
Rolled 5>>27535558I need some Hot-Blood Sauce to get hot!
Rolled 2Hopefully a gentle mentle.
>>27535223(Adding an annendum to this. Once eight rolls are made, I will take the number that repeated itself the most, or, failing that, the first number rolled. So the time for the new post is "eight rolls". You can roll multiple times if you wish, since I have no way of controlling who does and who doesn't, but I'll only take into account the "first eight rolls" made in the thread.)
Rolled 7c'mon, trickster!
Rolled 1>>27535558Best Part for best Jojo quest
Rolled 8>>27535558>2, come on 2
>>27535704HERETECH SCIENCE IS THE BEST IN THE GALAXY
>>27535704>not Techpriest Stroheimdo you even IMPERIAL SCIENCE anon?
Rolled 3>>27535841Rolling tiebreaker
Rolled 23>>27535841Speedwagon says 5.
>>27535859Disregard what I said earlier.Roll 1d8. The first result to be either 7, 5, or 1 is the demeanor for this JoJo.
>>27535875We are a kind gentlefellow then.
Rolled 6>>2753587540K AND Jojo? You have my attention.
>>27535922I'm ok with this, as long as we get some hot-blooded action later.
>>27535900>1. 「Kind Gentlefellow」YES.
>>27535980Kind generally extends until someone fucks with your shit. Then the friendly smile either goes away or becomes rather fixed and forced. Either way it's the last thing you see before you get your face beaten in.
>>27535900Seems our JoJo is a TRUE GENTLEMAN.「Kind Gentlefellow」You are truly a noble spirit! You do not wish to harm anyone and always wish to resort to diplomacy first before resorting to your unrelenting strength. Your personality is said to remind many of your Grandfather, who some even said could might as well be the second coming of Saint Jonathan before his all-too-soon passing.That noble spirit of yours also drives you to protect the innocent and the weak, and while you might take any attacks to your personal honor by turning the other cheek, whenever you see 'injustice', your explosive spirit awakens!This manifests as a desire to 'protect others', which was yet another reason why you followed your Father's footsteps despite your usually pacifistic nature.Roll 1d8 to determine your「Inseparable Companion」1. 「Lowbirth Loyalist」2. 「Fire-Forged Battle-Brother」3. 「Rescued Youth」4. 「Impulsive Ogryn」5. 「Pistoleiro」6. 「Headstrong Girl」7. 「Smiling Mentor」8. 「Pigtailed Beauty」
Rolled 6>>27536078Speedwagon wants an Ogryn. I can only imagine the Ogryn equivalent of a Jojo character.
Rolled 8>>27536078Anything but 4
Rolled 4>>27536078This is going to be good.
Rolled 1>>27536078How come 2 has all the best options?
Rolled 6>>27536078Because Joseph was best jojo?
>>27536097Pic related.And yes, Ogryns speak in Duwangese
Rolled 6>>27536163>>27536159>>27536097We have a headstrong female with us men! MAN THE BATTLESTATIONS AGAINST WAIFUING TO EARLY!Who the fuck am I kidding...
Rolled 6>>27536097Keep in mind that it would probably be pic related. So not that different
>>27536189>>27536182>>27536180>>27536163>>27536159>>27536097The dice gods demand a headstrong female...
Rolled 1>>27536189>>27536182>>27536180>>27536163>>27536159I think /tg dice have been possessed by the devil or really like stone ocean
>>27536143Read Jojos. You'll realise Part 2 is just the best part.
>>27536207I think they've been possessed by a Waifu demon.WE MUST CAST THEM OUT WITH OUR PERFECT GENTLEMANLYNESS AND COMPUNCTION TO PUNCH EVIL IN THE FACE
Rolled 8>>27536208Don't worry I have I just felt the need to comment on it. Hopefully we do not roll two for our main antagonist though.
>>27536226You can't get rid of the waifu demon anon. It always comes back.ALWAYS!!
>>27536226PURE WHITE OVERDRIVE!
Rolled 8>>27536264NO YOU FOOL WHITE KNIGHTING WILL ONLY MAKE IT STRONGER
>>27536189>>27536182>>27536180>>27536163>>27536159>>27536097[The Cosmos loves Hermes GOD DAMN]Despite her extensive criminal record and forced service, you know a noble spirit when you see it. You met her not too long ago, but the Guardswoman and you have developed a close, unbreakable bond already. You got her back, and she's got yours. In this grim future where there is only war, you have made the strongest of companions. There is a mysterious power within you, one you have yet to grasp. I wonder, JoJo, what is that power of yours?!1.「Luck & Pluck」2. 「Sight Beyond Sight」3. 「Time Manipulation」4. 「Absolute Healing」5. 「Life, Death and Perception」6. 「Bonds」7. 「Golden Rotation」8. 「Friction」
Rolled 2>>27536277>1.「Luck & Pluck」Lady Luck adores us, no?
Rolled 1>>27536277SAINT JONATHAN BLESS ME WITH YOUR STRENGTH THE POWER OF LUCK AND PLUCK!
>>27536277Need Tiebreaker for 8, 2 and 6.
Rolled 5>>27536361Here's the tiebreaker
Rolled 7>>27536277TIE BRAKER
Rolled 4>>27536361Break it
Rolled 1>>27536361Psyker Jojo
>>27536361So... friction.Which sounds like a shitty power.
>>27536390Nigga you high friction is a fundamental force of the universe
>>27536390But the shitty powers go the longest way in Jojo
>>27536390The more vague the power, the more overpowered it is. Sure it's no 'bonds', which could be just about anything at all but its a good shot.
>>27536403>>27536410I have a headache atm and have not into JoJo since Im a pleb. I will gladly embrace our new power and learn how to use it.
>>27536378For some reason, sometimes, when you touch objects, you've seen their physical properties change. You once leaned on a decomissioned Leman Russ, and it ended up sliding away for some reason!Now this is all fair and good, JoJo, but you are not only heroic characteristics. You too must have a fatal flaw, one which your enemies might take advantage of. Only if you are aware of it and work towards improvement, will you not fall victim to it.1.「Innocent Naivete」2.「Excessive Romantic」3. 「Insufficient Expression」4. 「Aesthetic Pride」5. 「Honor Before Reason」6. 「Unrelenting Stubbornness」7. 「Silver Spoon Arrogance」8. 「Childish」
Rolled 3>>27536489Come on, Excessive Romantic.
Rolled 3>>27536489Lets go for it!
>>27536489I'm eager to see how this holds with my theory that you can make stands work in any setting or genre.
Rolled 4>>27536489Come on honour!
Rolled 2I think we're getting another tie breaker.
Rolled 8>>27536516I guess we become a psyker who channels his dead grandfather AS THE EMBODIMENT OF THE EMPEROR'S FABULOUSNESS!...shit, we're descended from Fulgrim.
Tiebreaker, 3 and 4.
Rolled 2Breaking the Tie
Rolled 7>>27536489Inb4 waifuing faggot
Rolled 2>>275365561 for 32 for 4
Rolled 8>>27536556luck here?
Rolled 5>>27536570stupid tie breakers
>>27536601Bingo mother fuckers
>>27536639A noble Stoic...I can get behind that
>>27536601「Insufficient Expression」Despite your noble manner and refined gait, you have always had trouble when it comes to communicating with other people. Because of this, people might get the wrong idea from you or might initially think of you as cold and uncaring. Of course, nothing could be farther from the truth, but you're generally not the best when it comes to getting someone else to see your side of the argument. Now...one last thing. There is one thing that separates you from the others who have had a 「Star-Shaped Birthmark」 in Stella Platina. From beyond the endless prison of time and the cosmos of infinite death and rebirth, you have gained an 「Inheritance」. 1. 「Noblesse Oblige」2. 「Savvy Cleverness」3. 「Unending Resilience」4. 「Golden Spirit」5. 「Unwavering Resolve」6. 「Stargazer」7. 「Hunger」8. 「Distant Memory」
Rolled 3>>27536705To our jojo!
Rolled 6>>27536705Come on, lucky number 2!
Rolled 1>>27536705Resilience, come on....
Rolled 4Time for another go!
Rolled 6>>27536705No ties this time please
Rolled 2>>27536769This roll shall finish the selection!
>>27536780FINAL TIEBREAKER! 2 and 6! LET'S GO!
Rolled 6>>27536793Yare yare daze
>>27536796we got our stargazer
Rolled 8>>27536796Well, that's ominous.
>>27536808the roller likes 6 today
Damn, I want to join in, but I've only just started on Diamond is Unbreakable, and I don't want anything spoiled.
>>27536796"I want to keep looking at the stars."Well folks, that's it for today. The quest thread proper starts on Friday at 9:45 PM CST! I'll see you then!Even Speedwagon is Excited!
>>27536839It's been a pleasure questing with you Joey, Gentleman Joachim shal surely live a bizarre life wit you at the helm.
>>27536390Friction is actually really, REALLY good power since it's an absolute power that ignores powerlevels.Imagine if a Daemon tries to punch us. We can block it with one hand and remain standing while the Daemon stumbles.
>Jojo in the 41st MilleniumI am now monitoring this quest.
>>27537160Not really, if you move backwards with a punch then that will lose some of its power to movement. If you manage to stand there thanks to the friction, then you'll get hit by its full power. If you can just shake that away like its nothing then you wouldnt have needed the friction power to stand your ground in the first place.A good way to use friction in defence would be with parrying. Just make your own body or your oppenenst fist frictionless and it'll just slide off without harming you and throwing the other guy out of balance.
