(Lovecraftian Jojo Quest)The year is 1918. You are John Joestar.You are returning home to Jamestown, Rhode Island on a midnight bus.It has been far too long since you have seen your wife and daughter, but there was no dodging the draft. You haven't had contact with them, even through post, for the last few months.You had hoped that, on the nearly empty bus, you would have been given time to yourself. This notion is quickly dismissed when, at the last stop before yours, a familiar man in a suit gets on. When he sees you, he hurries over and takes a seat next to you. It's your next door neighbor, Robert Speedwagon."John, you're back! And in one piece too," he jokes, "Seriously though, how have you been? I can't even imagine what it would have been like to have to leave your family behind like that."How do you respond?> I'm fine, you?> Confide in him> I don't want to talk about it, how have you been?> Dismiss him and try to catch some sleep> Write in
>>2999812>Confide in him
>>2999812> Confide in him
>>2999841>>2999822"It was hard," you say, "Leaving them was bad enough, but the war was something else. A lot of good men died to secure victory. I survived, somehow. Fighting for your life and the lives of your countrymen is scary, sure, but I'm more afraid that I won't be the same man Erina fell in love with. That she won't even recognize me. That she'll leave me."Speedwagon puts a comforting hand on your shoulder. "That's no way to think, John. You'll come out of this stronger than you ever were before. Erina loves you. You know that. Maybe we should talk about something less dreary. Oh, I know! You remember how I was writing that novel before you left? Well, I'm actually on my way back from meeting with a publisher and..."The words of comfort were nice, but there's no stopping him once he gets going about one of his ideas.What will you do?> Just let him talk> Engage with him> Write in
>>2999952> Just let him talk
>>3000090You decide that it would be better to just let Speedwagon tire himself out.After what seems like an eternity, you catch sight of Jamestown in the distance as you start across the Newport bridge. Rather suddenly, a thunderstorm begins to pick up.This was only the start of some strange cosmic coincidence as it would seem, for, not even 10 minutes later, you feel a light rumbling. You hear someone shout in fear from the back of the bus when the rumbling intensifies into a full-blown earthquake. In the bus, you can feel the bridge break apart beneath you and you see the fast approaching sea out of the front of the bus.
>>3000170For a while, everything is dark.Then, you feel a presence touch your mind.It is something ancient, something wrong and you recoil at its contact. It brings with it an intense sense of unease, but it doesn't seem to be acting consciously. Before you can form more than a few coherent thoughts, it begins to violently dig through your memories, pulling up things you would rather have stayed buried.You see yourself back on the battlefield, people are dying left and right. It is accompanied by pain. The pain is unbearable, ungodly. You just wish it would stop.Abruptly, the visions change. You see the same battlefields, but different. You see yourself standing on a mound of enemy corpses, a peculiar gun in hand. It's a rifle, one not unlike those you had used. However, it's soaked in water with bits of seaweed stuck to it. You see yourself, the perfect soldier, unstoppable, unkillable. You win the war singlehandedly. No one can stop you.A name rings out in your head:「Seven Nation Army」You wake up on a beach. It is familiar to you. You used to play here when you were young. The town is not far from here.What do you do?
>>3000212>Search for SpeedwagonIt would be unfortunate if he drowned.
>>3000251You decide that you ought to look for Speedwagon.You find him on the beach a short distance away. He's asleep with a wide grin on his face and seems to be talking to himself."Don't worry ladies, there's enough of me to go around," he mumbles.After a short while, he comes to and sits up."John? What happened? Why was I sleeping on the beach?"How do you respond?> Explain what happened on the bridge> Ask about the dreams> Write in
>>3000347>Explain what happened on the bridge
>>3000354As you detail what happened, Speedwagon develops and progressively deepens a frown."That's certainly... worrying. Say John, did you have any weird dreams after the accident?" Before you have a chance to respond, he interrupts."No, that's a silly question," He looks around the beach, "I don't see any other survivors. We should probably head into town."He turns to face inland, and starts walking.What do you do?
>>3000392Take the lead
>>3000404You catch up with Speedwagon and then pass him, taking the lead.Not too much later, you arrive at Main Street. Everything is oddly quiet and empty for what should be not long before noon on a Wednesday. The few people you pass on the street do take the time to welcome you back.When you make it to the block where your house is situated, you realize that something is wrong. Jamestown's only police car is parked right in front of your house. As you approach, the sheriff, Don Schwartz, comes out to meet you."I hate to be the bearer of bad news, John, but it looks like your welcome won't be as warm as we would like. You see, Erina has been murdered and little Josephine has disappeared. I'm sorry John, I really am. Unfortunately, three days of searching your house and interrogating the townsfolk has not produced a smidgen of evidence beyond your late wife's body. I was in the process of closing the case when you showed up."
>>3000457oops, forgot:How do you respond?
>>3000457Grab him by the collar and demand to know if this is some sick joke.
>>3000469You grab Schwartz by the collar."You're telling me that my family, the one thing that kept me going past the point where any reasonable man would have died, the reason I fought, the reason I killed. You are telling me that they're dead? Is this your idea of a joke?"Speedwagon grabs your shoulder, "It's not his fault, John. Let him go."You let the sheriff drop from your grip and stifle the tears brimmjng at the corners of your eyes."I just wanted to see my goddamn family! Was that too much to ask? I need some time to think."You push past Schwartz and Speedwagon and into your house. You climb the stairs, storm into your room, and let yourself fall onto the bed.(I'm going to stop it here for the night. I'll update again as early as I can.)
I'm hype, I wonder what powers our Stand has. I can't wait to see!
>>3000560>I wonder what powers our Stand has.Stand in the 1918s. We're using the power of Hamon
>>3000584I mean we got a stand tho senpai.
>>3000584"It's a rifle, one not unlike those you had used. However, it's soaked in water with bits of seaweed stuck to it. You see yourself, the perfect soldier, unstoppable, unkillable. You win the war singlehandedly. No one can stop you.A name rings out in your head:「Seven Nation Army」"That's a Stand description if I've ever seen one. Face it Old Man, Hamon is over. But, Spin? That could be a thing.
>>3000598>I mean we got a stand tho senpai.Didn't read that
>>3000212>gun standwill it be more broken than Hol Horse's?
>>3001024Maybe it will be more balanced, like Sex Pistol's?
>>3000521That night, your dreams are odd. Instead of anything related to your recent tragedy, all you can remember of them is you sitting calmly and just watching as some invisible force tears obliterates the entire human race.The next day, not long before noon, you hear a knock on the door. You would've just ignored it, but you hear someone shout: "John?"It's SpeedwagonYou sigh and decide that you might as well just let him in. He knows where the spare key is anyway.You make your way downstairs and open the door."What is it?" you say groggily."Listen John, I know you're hurting, but locking yourself in your house all day won't make it better. I heard that there's a new priest in town. Maybe he can help you."What do you do?
>>3001110"Yeah? And when did he roll into town?" We ask, not really involved in the exchange.
>>3001110"Help how, Bob? Can't see he can do anything that'll bring my family back. And if I can't have that, does anything else really matter?"Waiting for the shoe to drop and John to realize that he ought to be out there tearing the world apart in search of his daughter.
>>3001115>>3001127>>3001110"Help how, Bob? Can't see he can do anything that'll bring my family back. And if I can't have that, does anything else really matter?" something clicks in your head, "You're half right, hiding won't fix anything. I need to get out there and find my daughter before it's too late."From the expression on his face, Speedwagon is trying to think of a way to talk you out of this.What do you do?
>>3001139"I won't ask you to help me Bob, but don't try to stop me." And head off to the police station, if anyone has any leads it's him.
>>3001144>>3001150"I won't ask you to help me Bob, but don't try to stop me." You brush past him and head off towards the police station. You need some answers and you need them now. When you enter the station, you see Schwartz slerping at his desk.What do you do?
>>3001173*bang on his desk*Schwartz i need to see the investigation of my family's murder
>>3001180This, I guess.
>>3001180Wake up fucker
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>3001180>>3001191You slam your hands down on the table. "Schwartz!"He sits up, suprised by his rude awakening."Who- Oh, it's you, John. What can I do for you?""I need the report on my family's murder.""I'm afraid I can't give you access, the case won't officially close for the next two weeks. Until then, it's for police eyes only."
>>3001210He's telling the truth.What do you do?
>>3001213>“Is there anything I can do to convince you? I just want to help find out what happened to my family.”
>>3001210grab him by the collarListen to me, my family was murdered and my daughter is missing, i need to see the case files.Don't you have a son? A daughter? What would you do if she was missing.
>>3001213"'Case won't close for two weeks'? Then tell me you're going to keep searching for her for all that time. Tell me that's you're working around the damn clock - and it still won't be enough! It's my daughter, Schwartz. I spent this whole war giving everything I had to protect her, and you expect me to just stop now? What would you do if it was yours, Schwartz? Would you honestly still be sitting here, napping the day away?"
>>3001224>>3001227>>3001238"'Case won't close for two weeks'? Then tell me you're going to keep searching for her for all that time. Tell me that's you're working around the damn clock - and it still won't be enough! It's my daughter, Schwartz. I spent this whole war giving everything I had to protect her, and you expect me to just stop now? What would you do if it was yours, Schwartz? Would you honestly still be sitting here, napping the day away?""I'm sorry John, I don't want to do this to you, but the orders came from higher up," something about the way he says this sends a chill down your back.You glare at him, "I don't care who gave the order! You're going to open the case and I'm going to get my family back!""I'm sorry John, I really am, but Father Brando was right. You have no place in his perfect world. 「Mr. Sandman」"Before you can respond, the world around you fades to black.
>>3001261Oh shit, we got criss crossed!
>>3001261Was wondering when we’d hear about Dio. Guess it makes sense he’d be the priest.
>>3001261https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CX45pYvxDiA"Honey, breakfast is ready. Come and get it while it's hot," Erina calls from downstairs, waking you up.You could've sworn... Oh, whatever. It was probably just a bad dream. You slip into your business suit and head on down to breakfast.Josephine is already sitting at the table, enjoying a small plate of bacon and pancakes. Erina comes out of the kitchen, wearing an apron and carrying a plate of delicious looking food."Good morning, honey," she says in a singsong voice and plants a kiss on your cheek, "Did you sleep well?"Something is wrong here, but you can't quite place your finger on it.What do you do?
>>3001272"No, I had an awful dream. I came back from the war and... I guess it doesn't matter now, darling." As we sit down at the table.
>>3001272Well, whatever it is, you're just glad to see your wife and daughter again....'again'?You must have had a bad dream. Same as usual, you suppose. You can never fully shake off the memories the war left you with.'The war'...It's been a long time since then, though. Hasn't it? It always feels like it only just ended, though. Well, whatever, you can dig up old memories later if you're ever in the mood.
>>3001276>>3001280Well, whatever it is, you're just glad to see your wife and daughter again....'again'?You must have had a bad dream. Same as usual, you suppose. You can never fully shake off the memories the war left you with.'The war'...It's been a long time since then, though. Hasn't it? It always feels like it only just ended, though. Well, whatever, you can dig up old memories later if you're ever in the mood."No, I had an awful dream. I came back from the war and... I guess it doesn't matter now, darling," you sit down at the table, across from Josephine. Erina sits next to you."Oh, I'm sorry. I hate to dampen your mood even further this morning, but the car broke down. Don't worry. I called around and Sherriff Schwartz will give you a ride."As you eat, you notice something strange. Every bite you take leaves you feeling hungrier and every sip of coffee makes you thirstier.You are interrupted from your thoughts by a knock on the door."Oh, that must be the Sherriff now. Best not to keep him waiting."When you open the door and set your eyes upon Schwartz, you are filled with irrational anger. For some reason, you want to attack him. You managed to supress these instincts and follow him to his car after an awkward hello. He starts the car and drives away from your house."Say John, what have you got there?"You look down and see a familiar service rifle clutched in your hands.What do you do?(Updates will be less frequent for the next few hours.)
>>3001318Drop the rifle in fear "I-I don't.. I can't remember."
>>3001318"I- I don't know. Something's wrong. Am I dreaming?"
>>3001328>>3001334You drop the rifle as a sudden fear overcomes you, "I-I don't.. I can't remember. I- I don't know. Something's wrong. Am I dreaming?""Don't worry John. Nothing is wrong. Everything is perfect. It always will be," he places his hand on your shoulder in what should be a comforting gesture. It's as cold as ice."W-What are you?" you pull away from him.You steal a glance out of the windshield and see that you're driving onto the still broken Newport bridge. A prodding in the back of your mind urges you to pick up the rifle.What do you do?
>>3001350Pick up the rifle and demand that he stop the car.
>>3001350make him stop the car, the bridge is not save!How do you know that?Where did that thought come from?
>>3001350>What do you do?Grab the rifle. Tell him to let you out, and if he doesn't comply, open the door (by force if necessary) and leap out.
>>3001360>>3001361>>3001362You hurriedly pick up the rifle and aim it at his head."You need to stop the car. If you don't, we'll both drown," you command him.He lets out a cackle as his head turns to face you independently of his body, "We're so close to That Which Lies Beneath. Our fate is sealed."You reach for the door handle, but it is gone. The door has been fully merged with the rest of the car. In a panic, you take a shot at Schwartz. The bullet sinks into his shoulder and your vision is blurred for a second. You are now in the driver's seat and Schwartz is in yours.You slam on the brakes and the car comes to a screeching halt, barely 20 feet from the end.What do you do?
>>3001372Deck him right in the jaw
>>3001372>body swaping bulletsNeat!
>>3001376>>3001387You cock back your arm, then knock Schwartz's lights out. He slumps over in the seat and something changes. The sun dims, clouds fill the sky, you no longer feel inexplicably calm and happy. You feel your memories come rushing back to you. Your wife is dead, your daughter is missing, and this 'Father Brando' has something to do with it.What do you do?
>>3001394We need to restrain Schwartz and get some answers out of him.
>>3001394>What do you do?Drive back to our house and find out what it was that had our wife and daughter seemingly in front of us.
>>3001398>>3001399>>3001402You turn the car around and hurry home. When you get there you take some rope and use it to tie Schwartz to a chair. You take a second to look into the kitchen where your 'wife' and 'daughter' were. You see two mounds of sand occupying the chairs.With Schwartz bound, what do you do next?
>>3001448slap him awake, or use cold water
>>3001448Lock the doors, close the blinds, make sure we're not being watched.Then, prepare some tools off to the side just in case the man isn't willing to talk. Preferably things which don't leave marks.
>>3001455shadowrun?Oh why am i even asking, SHADOWRUN!>>3001448also supporting
>>3001451>>3001455>>3001461>>3001468You lock the front door and go around closing all the blinds. When you get to a window near the back of your house, you see a man who looks to be half-owl. Your eyes meet and he hoots in suprise before flying out of your sight.What do you do?
>>3001482wipe our eyes, stare, scratch head
>>3001482I'm assuming the owl-man is outside of our house rather than inside? Did we see which way he flew off to?Head back to the sheriff and ensure that he's properly secured. Then go dig up that rifle again in case you're about to be attacked by someone else.
>>3001490Fuck out of here name fag
>>3001495He was indeed outside your house and he flew off towards the edge of town from what you can gather
>>3001497Literally who cares? It's an ID board.
>>3001490>>3001495That was... odd. However, you have more important things to deal with right now. You go back to securing your house, this time with 「Seven Nation Army」in hand. With all of your preperations made, how do you wake Schwartz and what questions do you ask him?
>>3001511I care niggerThat's why I posted
>>3001534Wake him with a bucket of ice water and interrogate him about what happened to our family and Father Brando's involvement.
>>3001540You splash a bucket of cold water in Schwartz's face."What? Where am... hello John," he scowls, "I see that you managed to beat my 「Mr. Sandman」. I must say, I'm impressed. No one else has been able to successfully defy Father Brando. I'll answer your questions, I owe you that much.""What happened to my family?" you ask, as evenly as you can, given the circumstances."Your daughter was selected for the ritual that will awaken That Which Lies Beneath. She is serving a purpose far greater than herself, than any of us! To interfere would be folly. Unfortunately for you, your wife did just that. As a result, Father Brando had to make an example out of her."What do you do?(I'll be away for around an hour and a half)
>>3001593"What did you do, you fucking monster?!" Crack him with butt of our rifle.
>>3001594>>3001593supporting, but don't hit him to hard, we still need him able to talk
>>3001593https://youtu.be/SDVWr93Z9Yc?t=34WHERE ARE THEY
>>3001594>>3001597>>3001722"What did you do, you fucking monster?!" you hit him in the face with the butt of your rifle.He puts his hands up pleadingly, "I didn't touch either of them. My stand's no good for that kind of thing anyway. I only covered up for Father Brando and his men."What do you do?
>>3001799"Stand? What are you talking about? And what does the priest have to do with all this?"
>>3001799the fuck is a stand?
>>3001804>>3001825"What the hell is a stand and what does this priest you keep mentioning have to do with all of this?""Father Dio Brando came to our town less than a month after you left. He taught us of That Which Lies Beneath and the abilities granted by experiencing its ancient dream. These abilities are known as 'stands'. We have spent the last year preparing for the grand ritual to awaken it and bring about a new age of total perfection."What do you do?
>>3001873What does any of that have to do with my daughter?
>>3001889"What does any of this have to fo with my daughter?" you spit."As I said before, your Josephine was selected to be used in the ritual. It requires the spilling of innocent blood. Unfortunate, I admit, but it is a necessary sacrifice."He grins and then pushes off of you with his legs, sending himself backwards. You feel a hand grab your shoulder and turn around to see your wife and daughter, both wielding knives.What do you do?
>>3001949Ignore them and shoot Schwartz. He's not getting away.
>>3001953>>3001984There's no way in hell you're letting Schwartz get away. You line up the shot and BANG! The bullet flies straight through his head and moments later, you find yourself loosely bound to the chair*, having narrowly avoided a knife to the back.As you take a moment to catch your breath and free yourself from the ropes, you hear a knocking at the door.*Flint was a tad on the portley sideWhat will you do now?
>>3002072> FlintHow did I even?I meant Schwartz
>>3002072What's the state of things? Did they disappear? Did Schwartz get stabbed? Are we still in immediate danger?
>>3002084Schwartz was stabbed by his stand as well as shot through the head by yours.The piles of sand have returned to an inert stateIt seems you have dealt with the only immediate threat
>>3002088We uh... answer the door after peeking outside to see who it is.
>>3002138You peek out of one of your windows and see Speedwagon standing at your door. You open it and let him inside, making sure to lock it behind him. He walks past you into your living room. You hear a gasp."John! Why is Sherriff Schwartz laying dead on your floor?"How do you respond?
>>3002231He tried to murder me is why.
>>3002231Gripping our gun we barely stop ourselves from aiming it at Speedwagon. Was he in on this plot too? Trying to dissuade us from saving our daughter?"Robert... Do you know what's been going on in this town?" We clench our teeth down tight as we force ourselves to keep explaining, "That damned priest, Brando, has convinced the town that they have to sacrifice my baby girl in order to please some god or whatever the hell these lunatics think it is! I'm not going to let that happen, Robert."
>>3002237>>3002238"He tried to kill me when I went looking for my daughter is why."Gripping your gun you barely stop yourself from aiming it at Speedwagon. Was he in on this plot too? Trying to dissuade you from saving your daughter?"Robert... Do you know what's been going on in this town?" Yoy clench your teeth down tight as you force ourselves to keep explaining, "That damned priest, Brando, has convinced the town that they have to sacrifice my baby girl in order to please some god or whatever the hell these lunatics think it is! I'm not going to let that happen, Robert.""Whoa. Calm down John. I'm your friend. Truth be told, I haven't left the house much this past year. Some people were acting funny, but I didn't think much of it. I guess I was wrong about that. If there really is a secret conspiracy that took your daughter, then I'm behind you 100%. If you could calmly explain what exactly is happening, I can help you."Do you trust Speedwagon and fill him on what you know so far?
>>3002349Yes. We don't have a choice anyway, we can't fight the whole town on our own.
>>3002349Wait. Wait a moment. There's something off here. Like Robert's deliberately ignoring, or, no, it's more like-"...Bob. Can you see what I'm holding right now?"
>>3002357>>3002362You trust Robert. He's been a close friend for many years. It's not like you have much of a choice anyway; you can't fight the entire town by yourself.Wait. Wait a moment. There's something off here. Like Robert's deliberately ignoring, or, no, it's more like-"...Bob. Can you see what I'm holding right now?""What are you talking about? Your hands are empty.""You can't see my stand?""Stand?" he's confused, "You have one of those abilities the sherriff was talking about? What does it do? Why can't I see it?"How do you respond?
>>3002434We hadn't really stopped to think about it in all the chaos... "It teleports me, I think? I don't know, Bob."
>>3002439You hadn't really had time to think about it."Yeah I do. It teleports me, I think? I really don't know.""That could be useful, but what if we want to take this Brando down, we'll need more allies, people we can trust," Speedwagon points out.A knock comes from the nearby window. The owl-man is hovering outside. Now that he is closer you recognize him as Old Man Zepelli, the hermit who has lived on the outskirts of town for as long as anyone can remember.What do you do?
>>3002528Wait. We closed those blinds, didn't we? How can we even see him hovering outside through the-OH GOD. HIS STAND HAS THE ABILITY TO OPEN BLINDS.Go confront him with this knowledge.
>>3002537You open the window."I heard you needed allies against Dio Brando. I can help you with that," he croaks out.He pushes past you and lands in the middle of your living room. When he touches down, all of his feathers fall off of him, leaving what looks to be an ordinary old man behind.Robert looks at you, then at Old Man Zepelli, "Let me guess: he has a stand too."What do you do?
>>3002640"I don't know. Why don't you tell us, Zepelli, because I'm almost as lost as he is."
>>3002664"I don't know. Why don't you tell us, Zepelli, because I'm almost as lost as he is.""I do indeed have a magic power, but more importantly, I have the advantage you need to defeat Dio Brando and stop his wretched master from waking."You perk up, "I'm listening.""You see, Dio was not the first to learn of That Which Lies Beneath. In fact, I belong to a ancient tradition of master and apprentice that exists to ensure it stays right where it is. I have had my eye on you for a while now, John Joestar. I wish to teach you an ancient technique that will allow you to stop Dio in his tracks before he awakens his wretched god on the winter solstice in three weeks time."Can you trust Old Man Zepelli? Are you willing to leave Josephine in Father Brando's clutches long enough to learn his secrets? What will you do next?
>>3002725I'm actually going to call it a night
>>3002725I wanna say yes because it's Zepelli and I wanna get some Hammon while we get our 「Stand」on but that feels kinda metagamey.We need him to prove we can trust him after all this shit has been flung at us.
>>3003129>>3003671"How do I know I can trust you, Zepelli?"Zepelli opens his mouth to respond, but before he can, there is a knock at the door."Mr. Joestar, are you in?" It's Deputy Clapton.What do you do?
>>3003717try to stay calm, tell zepelli to stay silent and let us talkclose the door to the kitchen and answer the door
>>3003729You motion for Zepelli and Speedwagon to get out of view of the door and move to open the door.Outside is Deputy Sheriff Clapton, he smiles and waves at you when you open the door."Hello Mr. Joestar, it's good to see that you came back from the war unharmed. I just have a few questions for you, don't worry."How do you respond?
>>3003830Open the door an be friendly, don't let him in though.
>>3003904The door is already open and he wants you to answer some questions
>>3003966Ah right."What do you need to know?"
>>3003992"What do you need to know?""You see, I haven't seen Sheriff Schwartz all afternoon. I couldn't help but notice his car parked out front of your house. Is he here?"How do you respond?
>>3004055"No. Well he was but he said there was something he had to do."Try to sound confused about it, like we're trying to understand why he left the car here ourselves.
>>3004055>>3004109why would he not contact you, do you have an idea what it is he wanted to do here?
>>3004109>>3004123"No. Well, he was, but he said there was something he had to do. I don't know where he went or why he left the car here," you feign confusion.The second you finish talking, your hands are instantly bound. Looking down, you see a pair of handcuffs has appeared on you."Just as I thought," Clapton says, "Nice try, but my 「I Shot the Sheriff」can sniff out any lie. Now, tell me Mr. Joestar, is there anyone else in the house?"What do you do?
>>3004211"Your mother. Give her a moment to get dressed." Headbutt him.
>>3004233"Your mother. Give her a moment to get dressed," You throw yourself forward, headbutting him. At the same time, you feel a shackle manifest around your ankle."You think you're funny?" he reaches for his gun.What do you do?
>>3004300"Yeah, hilarious! Guess why. Go on. Guess."
>>3004320At this point, his gun should be making its way out of its holster. Which shows just how inexperienced he is at combat; he's trying to draw his weapon while talking to you on your doorstep, well within arm's reach, never mind the 21-foot distance that officers of the law should be familiar with. Until he can get the barrel of his gun trained on you, he may as well be unarmed.You're handcuffed. Sure. But you've spent enough time in the trenches these past 2 years that just being handcuffed shouldn't stop you knocking the gun from his hands. After that, grapple him. Bear hug him, if possible, and take him down to the ground with you. We'll see just what the limits of his「I Shot the Sheriff」are.
>>3004320"Yeah, hilarious! Guess why. Go on. Guess.""I don't have time for this. I'll ask again, where is Sheriff Schwartz?"What do you do?
>>3004372So I'm guessing every time we lie to him chains appear on us. So we'll do like>>3004364 says and throw our wrist chains around his head and yank him into the house. Then yell for Bob to get his ass in here and help.
>>3004401No, no, that still leaves us chained. What I was proposing was to grapple him to the ground and try to wrap our limbs around him in such a way that immobilizes him. Then, lie our ass off. Sure, we won't be able to move, but so will he. Which means that if he wants to get out, he has to release the effect of his Stand from us.
>>3004408Getting Bob and Zepelli to help once we have him down is a safer bet than putting ourselves in more chains.
>>3004408we can also use the manacles to choke him from behind, he would have to release it then
>>3004211> Deputy Clapton>「I Shot the Sheriff」I feel like Marley would be a little offended, but I guess the cover was more popular then the original.
>>3004401>>3004408>>3004418>>3004420>>3004364Before he can react, you grapple him and let yourself fall backwards, pulling the two of you to the ground.With Clapton in your arms, you proceed to lie enough to make Lucifer blush, burying both of you under a mound of wrought iron chains.What do you do now?
>>3004454"So. Deputy. Unless you want me to keep talking until the two of us are crushed like this, I'd suggest you answer some of /my/ questions. Now, /where is my daughter/?"
>>3004627"So. Deputy. Unless you want me to keep talking until the two of us are crushed like this, I'd suggest you answer some of my questions. Now, where is my daughter?""You think you can intimidate me? What are you going to do, kill me?" he chuckles as best he can, constricted as he is."John? What's going on?" you hear Robert call.What do you do?
>>3004665I'm turning in for the night
>>3005386I'm ready whenever you guys are
>>3006810Tell him the truth for once now, "yes"
>>3006945"Yes. I'm going to kill you if you don't tell me where my daughter is right now."He laughs again, "You're a fool if you think you can defeat Father Brando's 「Back in Black」.""Is that you John? Are you under here?" you hear Speedwagon starting to dig through the chains.What do you do?
>>3007030Going to sleep bump
>>3009331Awake and ready to go
>>3007030Try telling the truth and see if that has any effect on his stand
>>3007030"That so? Sounds like weak shit to me. But what do I know? I only fucked him alongside your mother last night."Provoke him to we can goad him into saying more.One thing to try if this continues is to seeing how his Stand reacts when we say things that we don't know the verity of. It's simple to test: just say something that's a binary truth or falsehood, and then say its opposite; one of them must necessarily be true, and the other false.If his Stand reacts at all to this, we can use it to start learning things we need to know twenty-questions-style.>>3010557We did tell the truth; there was no apparent change.
>>3010567thats arguably less of a hard truth and more of a possibility. idk if his stand can tell the future trough lie detection
>>3010557>>3010567"That so? Sounds like weak shit to me. But what do I know? I only fucked him alongside your mother last night," you goad him. More chains wrap themselves around you."As if you could get past his personal bodyguard. Impossible."What do you do?
>>3010715try to summon our stand into our hand and just shoot somewhere? we never tried just shooting a wall
>>3010732With some difficulty, you summon 「Seven Nation Army」to your cuffed hands and take a potshot outwards.You hear the splintering of wood and there is a bright flash of light.You are standing up against the wall of the room and you see the top of your grandfather clock sticking out from under a pile of chains. Robert is also standing nearby, looking confused."Where did you go, Joestar?" Deputy Clapton's muffled but still angry voice calls out.What do you do?
So it looks like we don't have to just switch places with someone. That's going to be really useful.
>>3010790Awake and ready whenever y'all are
>>3010790So Clapton is still in chains, right? If he is, let's just walk out and start questioning him properly. He seems to know something about Dio's stando powah. He knows enough to at least know its name, anyway.
>>3012419"I'm out here, Clapton. Your chains couldn't hold me. I just have a few questions for you, don't worry," you menacingly intone, "Now tell me, where is my daughter?""She's in the belly of the beast. You'd have to fight Father Brando's entire flock to get to her."What do you do?
>>3012468"Sounds like you know who's waiting for me. Who are they? *Where* are they? Do they all have Stands like you and I do?"
>>3012490"Sounds like you know who's waiting for me. Who are they? Where are they? Do they all have Stands like you and I do?""Of course they have stands. Father Brando is no fool. I won't say any more, because if I did, they would kill me."What do you do?
>>3012530Tell him that if he doesn't tell us more, we'll have a date worse than death waiting for him.
>>3012530"You'd follow this bastard, even though your life is so disposable to him? Even though he'd kill you for something as simple as giving up information to save your life? Are you an idiot?"
>>3012555>>3012558"You'd follow this bastard, even though your life is so disposable to him? Even though he'd kill you for something as simple as giving up information to save your life? Are you an idiot?""To save my life?" he cackles, "That is hilarious. You think you're actually a threat to me. You are nothing but an ignorant fool. So long as Father Brando draws breath, I will never die!"What do you do?
>>3012743"That so? Literally never die? Unfortunately for you, there's many things far worse than death. Robert, mind heading into the garage and grabbing me some rope?"
>>3012754"That so? Literally never die? Unfortunately for you, there's many things far worse than death. Robert, mind heading into the garage and grabbing me some rope?"Robert mumbles a confused, "Okay," and leaves the room."You are a fool if you think you've beaten me, Mr. Joestar. I still have my gun after all."What do you do?
>>3012911"And i have mine. unlike you though im not buried under a ton of my own chains."and prepare to fire in case he pulls something after we say that
>>3012954"And I have mine, without being buried under my own chains."A gunshot rings out and you reflexively tighten your trigger finger. You loosen your grip, however, when the chains slowly fade from sight, leaving the dead body of Deputy Clapton in plain sight.Robert returns, rope in hand, "I got the ro... oh, nevermind I guess."What do you do?
>>3013004tie him up anyway. you can never be to careful with these bloody stands
>>3013018You tie up the corpse, just in case.Zepelli chooses this moment to walk into the room. He looks down at the Deputy's bound carcass."It seems like you've been busy," he's sipping from a coffee mug.What do you do?
>>3014242You know the quest is too old to be bump
