Living in a lighthouse
The lions and the lambs ain't sleeping yet


In England, 1868, the wealthy George Joestar lost his wife in a carriage accident while his infant son Jonathan survived. They were found by Dario Brando, a poor man aiming to loot their corpses. Mistakenly believing that Dario had saved his life, George Joestar promised to repay the debt he owed.

And so, years later when Dario's son Dio was left orphaned, he was adopted into the Joestar family. But this was not enough to satisfy Dio. After growing up in the slums with nothing but loathing for his background and his alcoholic father, Dio vowed to rise to the very top. He became bitter rivals with his new brother Jonathan, aiming to ruin him and claim the Joestar fortune all for himself. The true depths of his evil schemes were finally revealed as they reached adulthood, when Jonathan uncovered Dio's plot to poison George Joestar.

This could have been just a standard tale of greed and ambition, but thanks to the bizarre power of a mysterious ancient artifact, the tragedy did not end there...

Game Rules:

* Never edit your posts.

* No talking about this game outside this thread. (unless you are scum talking amongst yourselves, or in a deaddoc) This includes coy hints in the chat thread!

* Do not directly quote your role PM or any other mod PM. Discussing your role or results is fine, faking up official mod communications is not.

* No deadposting unless it's the standard no-content stuff, like "go team" "you guys suck", etc.

* No toxxing or truth or dare or literal encryption of posts, or anything else dodgy that goes against the spirit of just talking things out in the thread.

* Day phases are 12 hours, from 10 AM - 10 PM Australian Eastern Time.

* Lynches are by majority, playing to hammer. Do not purposely post after the hammer has fallen.

* Don't panic, there are no loving millers of any type whatsoever.

Hm, it might not get started till right around then, actually! Signups are going a bit slow so I probably won't be able to kick things off till the weekend.

Once the game does start though, it should be all finished within a week.

It is now 1888. The same year in which Jack the Ripper went on his murderous spree. But Jack is not the only terror who stalks the streets...

Dio: "So this is the end? JoJo, I want you to be the one to handcuff me."



Dio: "JoJo, being human means having limits. I've learned something. The more carefully you scheme, the more unexpected events come along. As long as you are human..."

Jonathan: "What? What do you mean?"



Dio: "I'm throwing away my humanity, JoJo!"



Jonathan: "Dad!"

George Joestar, Town Plot Device, has been killed on Night 0!



Police Chief: "Fire!!"



Dio was also killed on Night 0...?

Day 1 will begin at 10 AM tomorrow! I'll send out the PMs tonight. Contact me (and possibly clear out your inbox) if you don't have one by tomorrow morning.

While Jonathan had been chasing the proof of Dio's crimes, Dio discovered the secret of the stone mask Jonathan was studying. Activated by blood, it turned the one wearing it into a vampire with incredible powers.



Dio: "I'm beyond human! Invincible! Immortal! I will rule this world!"

Dio has been revived!

Jonathan and Dio fought to finally settle the score, and Jonathan was willing to burn down the Joestar mansion if it could put an end to Dio's evil.



But although Dio was gravely wounded and forced to retreat into hiding, he was not yet completely destroyed. He is now gathering an army of zombie followers while he regains his strength. If Dio's ambition cannot be destroyed for good, he could enslave humanity and take over the whole world! Can he be stopped before it's too late?

Day 1 has begun!

Dio is a vampire that can summon the dead and or make other less powerful vampires. He aims to take over the world.

the Joestar Family and friends aim to stop him by using the Ripple, a weird loving power where you use the sun's rays and absorb them through breathing patterns to unleash them during combat via kicks or punches. This kills vampires and Zombies rather instantly.

Dio can also freeze his blood to freeze other people in direct contact with him and fire eye fluid out of his eyes like a laser to own people.

We must stop Dio and his Vampire minions to win.
