"Is this the real life" edition.The year is 1936, and the Spanish Civil War has begun.Your name is José Quintana, and you´ve lived in the countryside for all your life, helping your family tend to the crops you´ve needed to survive, hiding your strange ability, the Stand [Iron Maiden], from everyone. Or so you thought, for the day in which you were to be drafted into the Republican army to fight the fascist forces, you fled, and were found by another Stand user by the name of Francisco Sánchez. You joined in his plans to stop this senseless war, and set out to find if the rumours of a falangist Stand user murdering Republic sympathisers in the Asturian city of Gijon were true. Upon arriving at the city, you were immediately assaulted by the enemy´s Stand, [A world without logos], which you managed to defeat after a hard fight. Not long after, you wound up hearing rumours of corpses being drained completely of blood near the caves of Altamira, and promtly set out to find what you thought to be a Stand user, only to find that vampires had taken refuge in the cave, along with a Pillar Man. You managed to flee with one of the stone masks which the vampires had, and you´re now searching for a way to defeat said vampires, having decided not to use the stone mask for now- Althrough your companion seems to have taken an interest in it...You...>Decide to search for the man in Gijon who seemed to know what was going on in Altamira.

>>600413>Decide to search for the man in Gijon who seemed to know what was going on in Altamira. You remember him mentioning something about the Sun and breathing... Now I remembered why we didn't just stick the mask on or anything. Had to learn how to be of the Breathing first.

>>600429>>600519>>600413You decide to search for clues in Gijon, focusing on the man who you overheard say something about the sun... if he knew of their weaknesses, maybe he knows of a more reliable way to defeat them? You begin searching around the city, starting out near the coast, where you last saw the man- but to no avail. Perhaps he has left town, you wonder? He could´ve gone to Altamira and completely missed you, but going back would be, quite frankly, a waste of time. Perhaps you could try to figure out what he meant by "breathing", althrough you are not sure if you could, or you could keep searching for him.What´s for sure is that you need to find a way to combat those vampires soon, before they begin expanding their control over the area- by the time you left, everyone was already terrified of the mysterious murders, it wouldn´t take much more for people to start fleeing the area- and the vampires would have all the time they need for whatever devious plans they have.>Try to find the man.

Deciding to continue your search for the man, you ask your friend Francisco for help- with the help of his Stand, you´ll have access to the senses of the area´s animals, and it´ll be that much easier to find the person you´re looking for. You remember it being a young-looking man, around his 20´s, with light brown hair. You did not get a good look at his eyes, but you do remember a pretty distinictive scar on his left cheek- which is the main thing you´re looking out for.Surely enough, thanks to Francisco´s help- much to his bickering, since he was attempting to research the mask, he has been quite insistent in figuring out how it works- You´re getting quite worried, to be honest. Perhaps you should prevent him from having it without your supervision- you wouldn´t like him doing anything reckless.You find the man soon after it begins raining- it wasn´t hard to find a man whose steps on puddles rippled light. You wonder what´s up with that.>Ask the man directly how to fight vampires>Introduce yourself politely, then explain your story in Altamira (include the mask? y/n)>Forget about this, you´d rather find out by studying the mask>Other:Write-in?

>>602499Don´t remind me---"Hello! I´m José Quintana, pleased to meet y-"" What do you want, kid? I´m busy Well, you didn´t quite expect that. You were hoping that he would be a upbeat kinda guy, althrough you guess expecting someone who very well might be a vampire hunter to be all fun and games was kind of wrong. After all, this person looks like he has faced death many a time before- or at least his face has.Christ, from the way he´s looking at you, he could very well have read your mind."You see, i thought you might know a thing or two about killing...vampires?" you ask, praying to not sound completely stupid" Vampires? Those blasted things, how did you-""I overheard you talking about the sun and their weakness, something about "breathing?" I hoped you could teach me how to do it"" Why would you even need to know it boy? There aren´t any vampires in Spain, the last BIG Vampire died a long time ago, in Britain"You tell the man about what happened in Altamira, and he listens attentively."So you´re saying a sort of vampire boss is in the caves of Altamira, and they´ve been using...masks for some sort of ritual? Tell me, what did those masks look like?""Uh, stone masks with the shape of a face and a hole in it, why?"" So there WERE more masks? Look, kid, if what you´re saying is true, we´re in deep trouble, even deeper than the war itself. You should just stay at home, try to protect your folks- and leave the vampire hunting to proffesionals like me.">Insist- You need to protect those people>Give up- you have other things to focus on>Try to get more information on the mask>Write-in

How do they work?"Goddamit, you weren´t educated for subtlety in your little fuck-off town. He looks at you in the eyes." You seem awfully curious about the masks...""W-well, they seemed to be using them for something important"" And you´re sure that´s why you want to know it?""What, do I look like a vampire to you?"Oh Dios you should not have asked that.To your surprise, he laughs." Fine, fine, I guess i can tell you that much. Those masks? they use them to make vampires. That´s why I´m going to destroy them all when I get there- You said you wanted to help, right?""Yes, i cannot leave those people to die- And I´ve seen the layout there, I would be a great help to you"." I see- well then, there´s only one thing to do""What is- OW"Suddenly, the man hit´s you square in the chest, and you can´t breathe! Roll 1d20 for Ripple potential

And suddenly, you breath .And with a single breath you´re filled with energy" Whoa there! That´s... that´s a very powerful ripple, you´ve got talent kid. If what you´ve told me about those vampires is true, i´ll be glad to have you by my side. We´ll begin training immediately. My name, by the way, is Diego, Diego Ganzedo. "Still brimming with this energy Diego called "ripple", you manage to recover normal breathing- and feel it dissipating slightly. Seems you´ll have to keep breathing in a certain manner to generate that power- but it shouldn´t be hard for you. You´ll go to Altamira, defeat those vampires,and crush those Stone ma-Wait a motherfucking second, where´s the mask?! Oh, right, you left it with- Francisco...You hope he didn´t do anything stupid with it." Is something the matter, José?"You...>Need to find Francisco right this instant- he should be at the hotel.>"Ah, it´s nothing, let´s go to Altamira">Other:Write-in?

>>602836>find Francisco Wouldn't be surprised if he fucked around with the mask and got turned into a vamp
You need to find Francisco before he does something stupid." Hey, where are you going?!""My friend might be in some serious danger right now!"" What, why?""He-" you pause for a second, and Diego eyes you suspiciously. "I just need to check on him, he always gets into trouble without me- and besides, he has a pretty useful ability, and was also to Altamira"" Fine, kid, we´ll pick up your friend " He sighs.You bolt towards your hotel, your mind filled with horrible thoughts, which are confirmed when you kick open the door to his room-"Francisco, drop that mask this instant!"" He has a mask!?"Francisco smiles- "Don´t you understand, José? This is our ticket to the end of the war! Enough power to end it and those that started it, and make this country a better place for everyone- with me at the lead-" You honestly can´t believe what you´re hearing."But you wouldn´t do it, would you, Francisco? You´re just a village boy who was raised to do what you were told. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on you that you would help me reach my goal- and now I see that you will work against me if you feel that´s what´s "right"!- But it´s what has to be done.""Francisco, no! Listen, there´s other ways to stop this war"Diego brushes you aside, his left hand glowing with the energy of the Ripple- " Drop the mask this instant or i´ll be forced to kill you " He says, a serious look on his face."You? Kill me? Hah!" Francisco tries to act confident- but he has noticed the glow of Diego´s arm, and suspects that it would not be an easy fight for him. Nevertheless, he seems to have taken a decision, and knows words said can´t be unspoken, and he grabs his knife to make a cut on his hand.

>>602998>>603010>>603011-------"[IRON MAIDEN]!"You call your Stand to your side, attempting to use it´s magnetic powers to snatch the knife from Francisco´s hands- and only succeeding in making a rather nasty cut across his face with it as it clatters to the ground. Diego bolts forward, his hand glowing with the power of the Sun- but he is too far away, he cannot possibly reach Francisco in time to stop him, as he puts on the mask-" I´ll transcend my humanity, José!"Diego´s blow arrives just a moment too soon, striking him just before the transformation is complete- And Francisco´s body crahses through the window, and into the rain outside.By the time you look out the window, he is no longer there, having run off with the Stone Mask." He had taken one of the stone masks..."The sound of the rain cannot hope to fill the silence that has occupied the room, like a dark shroud covering the area. It feels like a funeral."How could he... i thought he was my friend..."--End updates

>>610060Alright I´ll bite. I´ll run for a bit today and i can probably run tomorrow too, so let´s do this.Have a very consistent gif meanwhile.
-----------------------Rain is entering through the broken window. Diego looks at you straight in the eyes, saying nothing. You suspect he´s wondering if you knew about your "friend" having the masks, but he´s decided against saying anything.You aren´t sure what to do right now- for one, you hoped Diego would take you with him to Altamira and teach you how to fight those Vampires- but you think this incident might make him reconsider- And you aren´t sure you want to get into more trouble. For the first time in your journey, you´ve begun thinking if it was actually a good idea to get into this fight- Perhaps you should´ve just ran off and hid with your family from the war until it just blew off- after all, it can´t last much longer, can it?.You...>Decide to try going with Diego to Altamira>Try to stop Francisco- after all, it´s your fault that this has happened.

You decide that, since you´ve caused this problem, it is in your responsibility to end it. After all, if you hadn´t taken the mask..."I´ll understand if you don´t want to help me, Diego, but i need to-"" Kill him? It´s the least you can do, yes. I´ll help you, I don´t want this city turned into zombies by tomorrow morning...""Zombies?"" You don´t actually know? Vampires can make people into their loyal slaves by injecting them with their blood- but it gives them the same sunlight weakness- and thus, makes them weak to the Ripple- the power of the Sun channelled through your bloodstream. The power i´ll teach so, so you don´t weigh me down, understand?""Understood".You are glad Diego either hasn´t realized that you knew he had the mask, or knows that you didn´t know what it did- It´s good to see that he´ll still help you- even if it´s his job as a vampire hunter, you think." We should start looking for him. We can´t let him gather an army, you know ""Oh, right- He must have left a trail of blood, after all-"" No chance, vampires regenerate from wounds very quickly.
