Welcome to the Jojo's Bizzare Adventure sign up and OOC thread! I'm your host, Josh! My co host/ gm/ JOJO (Since everyone wants to Be JOJO, I thought it'd be a godo idea for the first part to have my co-gm as JOJO.) Is @Verite! So I guess some of you are thinking... "Hey Josh, What's JOJOs?' The greatest anime/ manga ever. Get out you filthy casual. Do you even ORAORAORA? JO-JOkes aside JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken?) (often shortened to JoJo) is a shōnen and seinen manga written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki (All praise by thy name) JoJo was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1987 to 2004, when it transferred to monthly seinen magazine Ultra Jump, where the story continues. The series has sold over 80 million volumes in Japan, and is one of the overall best-selling Weekly Shonen Jump series. Filling over 100 volumes (for a total of ~20,000 pages), it is Shueisha's second longest-running manga series. Publication in English of the earlier parts of the series is ongoing. JoJo's genre spans Action, Adventure, Supernatural, Thriller/Suspense, Comedy, Mystery and Horror. It is perhaps most popularly known for its Stand phenomenon; the Stardust Crusaders arc and its characters Dio and Jotaro Kujo; the expressive rendition of its proud, glamorous personalities; and its hundreds of nominal references to Western popular music. Thanks to the JOJO wiki I stole from. Really though, Those Guys are great! So before talk about the RP, I'm going to say this is a celebration of my favorite manga of all time. As GMs Verite and My goal is to make it FEEL like a story Jojo Weirdness be it a god whom farts in your face, to the first lady Of the united states who wants to sit on your face, ladies, Jojo is Bizarre and awe inspiring. So Unlike like most Manga's, Jojo does parts. Every Pasrt is a new cast of characters and new settings, with old characters appearing if need. This Hopefully won't be the only part (My minds already racing with idea). So how long is this part going to be? I want to keep it short to keep everyone attention, but I also want to tell a story. I'm aiming for 3-4 months long. Hopefully it''ll just be 1-3, but I'm a realist. So what's the setting for this part?! The year of our lord is 1948. The place? Illinois in the Second City itself, Chicago! The windy city! Home of deep dish pizza! Of those Lovable losers, The Chicago Cubs and the "friendly confides" of Wrigley Field. Also the home the Chicago mob, yeah it's mob deep. With Corrupt cops and almost lawless. With out giving much away (since we're still working on stuff) All I can say is JOJO is facing the mob with personal ties in the balance! So for those who do not know, the man ability some has is called a stand. What's a stand? Its like a persona (Which are based on stands) A stand is a persons fighting spirit. It's usually of a psychic projection/. ghost thing however not aways> Stands can be used by anything. A dog, a rat, a street, a sword, not just people. Anything can have a stand. http://jojo.wikia.com/wiki/Stand There our different types. http://jojo.wikia.com/wiki/Stand_Types Really http://jojo.wikia.com/wiki/Special_Stand Also stands have states A Stand's abilities are categorized by 6 statistics: Destructive power, speed, range, durability/staying, precision and developmental potential/learning. Destructive Power: Measures the Stand's strength and ability to cause destruction in a given period of time. Not only limited to brute force, but also to its abilities combined. Speed: Measures the Stand's agility and performance speed. Range: Measures the Stand's range of manifestation, range of ability influence, and spatial mobility. Durability/Staying: Measures the Stand's endurance and level of susceptibility to damage and attacks. This category may also gauge the effectiveness of the ability's binding toward physical objects. Precision: Measures the Stand's accuracy and its ability's range of influence to specified targets. Development Potential/Learning: Measures the Stand's possible functions and utilization of its abilities and powers. Each statistic is ranked from A to E; though rankings of Infinite and None are also possible. Rankings are defined as follows: A: Excellent B: Good C: Average (the same level as a normal person) D: Weak E: Very Weak For range, rankings are defined as follows: A: 100 meters (little over 328 feet) B: 50 meters (little over 164 feet) C: 20 meters (66 feet) D: 10 meters (33 feet) E: 2 meters (7 feet) Also and this might be the most important rule The name Most relate to music. Be it song name, album, band, ect. To capture the spirit of Jojo we most follow that rule This is m y first post my next post is coming soon, I'll tell you how you can sign up and of which roles. But in the mean time, say if your interested. Also if you're not familiar with JOJO's, don't let that stop you. Please.
