    ROLEPLAYER'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE
    Roleplay Contest #7​

    The deadline for submissions is Sunday September 2nd @ 11:59 PM EST.

    After a four month hiatus, the roleplay contests are back. For this contest, we will be creating original characters for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (JJBA). Your objective is to create a character for a hypothetical JJBA set in an alternate universe where Dio Brando awakens in 2018 instead of 1983. You are to describe your Stand, your Stand user, and why your character is either opposing or has aligned with Dio Brando. Optionally, you may make a character who uses Hamon or even a Pillar Man. Your character should be appropriate for the setting and should be neither too weak nor too powerful to be a viable player character. You can spend as much or as little time as you want on your Stand and its user, but you should cover enough that I (the hypothetical GM) will have a good understanding of who your character is, what they want, what their powers are, and why they should be the winner of this contest.

    In short, the contest's theme is JoJo's Bizarre Adventure character creation.

    Rules:
    • Entries must be submitted by the deadline.
    • Entries must be original and your own work.
    • Entries must match the theme.
    • The theme is open to interpretation.
    • There is no minimum or maximum word count.
    • Participants may vote for their favorite entries once the deadline has passed: they may choose their three favorite entries (in order) and the results will be averaged to determine the winners.
    The and the page may be helpful sources for you.

    As usual, I will attempt to have a mock entry halfway between now and the deadline.

    Also, me posting this has nothing to do with the fact that my avi privileges are probably running out soon.

    I'm really struggling to come up with a character that would somehow be inappropriate for a JJBA setting. :amuse

    I have been working on mine a little bit at a time over the passed week during my breaks. It is not enough that I would comfortably submit, yet I invested enough time that it'd be a waste not to participate.

    Could the deadline be extended by a week?

    I don’t see why not. I’ll extend it by exactly a week.

    Appreciate it. I had to familarize myself with the material too. I knew the JoJo basics, but not the intricacies of the universe.

    Don't get my hopes up, I thought you posted yours. I mean the contest was dead anyway, but I didn't like the way mine came out and hoping to use yours as a JJBA guide.

    Yeah, I was gonna post mine for you, but then somebody invited me day drinking. On principle, I can't say no to day drinking.

    I'll read what you have if you want. I'm sure it's good.

    No worries, I understand.

    Thanks for the confidence, but I really don't like the way it turned out. The stand ability is too convoluted and could be left to interpretation. When I was researching stands, I saw that most don't have a personality, but some do, so I made my stand have one.... But then I wasn't sure how much personality stands typically have when they actually do, and was afraid I had given it too much personality... Especially when compared to how I wanted to depict the Stand User. Then it was the concern of how to make the character relate to the plot with Dio, the was the most difficult part and where I found didn't fit in. Because the character wasn't benevolent, yet wouldn't have fallen in line with my understanding of Dio's agenda either. Was hoping to read another's entry to see how they do it, so I have a better understanding of the tone of the story and it's narrative.

    If it helps any, @Sequester, here is what I was going to post.

    It's unfinished, but this was the idea.

    It was either a stand based on Cruel Angel's Thesis or... Liberty Belle and her Stand Star-Spangled.

    I had a vague idea of a stand that produced oil because I remembered something about the special sun "magic" that used oil, but I haven't read JJBA in so long I'd have had to look stuff up to develop it.

    Hmm, maybe this contest theme was too limiting.

    I figured since this was an anime forum that we'd get some turnout for stuff like JJBA, and I lowkey don't want to fall back on stuff like 'generic superhero' and 'generic fantasy'.

    Create a DBZ character contest, y/n? If we can't do DBZ of all things, there's no redeeming this section gg.

    Probably because JJBA while popular historically it is not what is vogue.... if it was something ongoing now probably would get more takers...

    My problem is I have always been aware of JJBA, but never actually got around to indulge in it.

    Kids these days...

    Not sure how many people would roll up with Goku clones, tbh. Goku isn't even a compelling character.
