    With the entire Jojo's Bizarre Adventure rebooted after the events of Part 6, quite a major gap laid in between parts 7 and 8. However, while this may be apparent, this story takes place in a universe of it's own. Around the 1940s, the Second World War was raging, lives being lost and shipped to the battlefield. However, a rather strange discovery had taken place many years prior. In 1909, two brothers entered the famed Great Pyramids in Egypt, and discovered a set of arrows hidden inside the tombs. Six arrows were retrieved, and with this discovery, were donated to a museum to be put on display. However, someone else had ideas for these mystical arrows. After having stolen these arrows from said museum, a man, who's name is still unknown, proceeded to try and sell them to the highest buyers. The arrows were seen as nothing more than trinkets and fakes, and in a fit of rage, the man began a killing spree, using these arrows as tools of murder... only the ones he thought were dead never went to the morgue...

    The Spanish Civil War which brought Francisco Franco and his Nationalists to power ended four years ago. Though friendly to Nazi Germany, Spain remain neutral in the Second World War, making it a haven for adventurers, smugglers, and spies from both the Axis and the Allies...

    This story takes place in Spain, around 1943.

    RULES:

    Pretty straightforward, as many RPs are.

    1: If you have questions about something another user can't help you with, speak to a mod.

    2: No Autohitting, Godmodding, OOC smack talking or in general negative behavior, the RP's meant to be fun not a boxing ring.

    3: The mods for this RP will be decided when more people show interest.

    4: Be reasonable with your attacks, if your Stand is a rather low power one, don't have it let loose a divine sandstorm.

    5: The main plot lines have been drawn up and will be further explained in the actual RP, however, this does mean that the characters who wish to be involved are encouraged to "stick to the group."

    6: This RP also DOES NOT use Canon characters, any characters in this RP should be OCs. However, if you do not wish to use a Stand, you have the option of using Hamon.

    Name: Ludwig Steinbrecher (prefers Stein)
    Age: 25
    Appearance: jojo.png
    Gender:
    Male
    Personality: Snarky, antisocial, and has a bad habit of criticizing people, including himself.
    Bio: He was a young teenager during the Rise of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, and for the most part just looked at them as a another political party. Once Hitler became the leader of Germany, Stein sensed that things would be mounting. This feeling only intensified as he was drafted into the German Army. He only fought in a few battles, and even then, he mostly was just trying not to get shot and avoiding the ire of his superior officers. Eventually, he saw so much death that he emotionally shut down, and in the confusion of one battle, he decided to attempt an escape... only to get his ass shot by an arrow. As his battalion left him in the dust, convinced that he had been killed in glorious battle, Stein watched them move on so nonplussed at his death that he swore that he'd get his revenge, not only on the army, but at the man who was leading them...

    Name: Rory Winchester
    Age: 37
    Appearance: Wiry, average height, auburn hair, thick but well-groomed mustache, moderately tanned
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Typically very gentlemanly and nonchalant, becomes curt when cross. Fairly optimistic, but not unrealistically so.
    Bio: Rory Winchester was born just outside of Oxford into a middle-class family. He had an unremarkable but pleasant boyhood, until his older brother went off to fight in the Great War and never returned. His parents were devastated; his mum found her only comfort in him, and his father turned to drink, leaving the family a hopeless drunk a few years later. Despite this tragedy, Rory decided to enlist in the British Army after his graduation from Oxford University. There, he learned how his brother had died. A faulty scouting report had caused his CO to deploy him and his squad into the path of a friendly artillery strike. Vowing to prevent such an atrocity from ever happening again, he volunteered for the Secret Intelligence Service at the first opportunity, serving faithfully as the Nazis rose to power in Germany and began conquering Europe. In 1943, he was deployed on special assignment to Spain to identify Nazi sympathizers and potential Allies.

    Name: Ishiro Serizawa
    Age: 34
    Appearance: UPDATE LATER
    Gender:
    Male
    Personality: Stoic, but behind his stoic facade and 'loyalty' lies a lonely man who found murder to be the best solution to his problems.
    Bio: Born in Japan, Serizawa was a part of a massive military family, one that had been serving the Emperor for the last three generations. As such, he trained diligently but never had many friends outside of his extended family. All this came to a head when, near the beginning of the war, he failed to stop his older brother Daisuke from leaving, and embarrassed by his failure, he disappeared into the forest. His intentions were to die an honorable death, one that will proclaim his failure and redeem his family. Then when he had the rope over his neck, he looked down and panicked, his fear overcoming his need to die. And with this, his Stand awoke, ripping away the rope and freeing Ishiro from his attempt to meet death. When he returned to the family, they were less then pleased and seeked to strike him down themselves. The house burned that night, taking almost every member of the Serizawa family with it... with the exception of Ichiro, who had used the power of his stand to destroy the family that had deemed him unworthy of life... and in the process, he came to realize something - he liked killing people. A lot. To this end, he attempted to join the army and serve as the destroyer of the enemies of his empire, including those who abandoned the allies of the emperor.

    I would like to ask that everyone who is signed up have AT LEAST 2 CHARACTERS to help flush out the RP a bit until more interest is shown.

    I intend to start the RP sometime after Christmas, as things are going to be a little slow.
