imhumanreally: [RP Log] Attack of the Clones

BACKDATED: Takes place August third, around 8:00 AM. It is the morning after the great explosion at ZIM's base, and everyone at skool has been replaced with... well, a clone is really the best way ZIM and Dib can put it (since they saw their clones briefly the night before). The boys confront each other, bicker, and then ZIM has to do some grovelling bargaining.

Rated: PG, for minor swearing. 8D; Guess the boys aren't so young anymore. ^^;

(yay first log)

But what had happened to the real children?Collapse )

imhumanreally: Happy rule things

You've made it this far... Oh, you're good...

Let's lay down some ground rules. Because, even though this is an RPG and we want to have lots of fun, we have to have some structure. Whoohoo! STRUCTURE. OBEY MY STRUCTURE.

-First off, this is NOT an AU RPG. What I mean by this is that everything is still taking place in the same world as in Invader ZIM. There's no magic or special powers (unless it comes from shiny robots or spell books that Dib picks up). Everyone is the same age, more or less.

-That being said... No god-modding. Your character, not even THEGREATZIM, can be so almighty that they can completely destroy another character... If you would like to do something special with another character (injuries/fights, relationships ::shifty eyes:: 8D ), you *must* talk it over with that character first. Do not simply grab a character and kidnap them, beat them up, and then leave them on the road to die. NOT NICE. Ask the mun for permission.

(As an aside, I don't think everyone has as big a problem with this as I do... But I'm not one to toss out my characters for anyone to play. When I choose a character for RPing, that's kind of who I want to play. And when other people apply for characters, I assume that is who they want to play too. So when they are indifferent about who does what with their character, that frusterates me. But it really is none of my business O.o;; But if you want to sign up for a character, please take full responsibility for that character! Don't just let someone walk all over you...)

-Right now, just one character per person will be granted, since the cast is kind of small. If people do not join or want to take minor roles, perhaps I'll change this rule so that the story can move along.

-Journalling will be done... In a journal. That is where a character will interact... from home, from the library, the dumpster... with other characters. Journals are *not* where the role-playing will take place unless a specific entry is made for RPing by two (or more) characters. If needed, a seperate community could be made for those types of RPs.

In any case, the private journals are just like journals at home... Think of how your character would type. Would they use emoticons? Use correct punctuation? Spell properly? TyP LyK dIz?! It's your chance to get creative. (these should be updated AT LEAST once a week)

-The actual role-playing (between two or more characters) must be done via some sort of instant messaging program. AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, IRC... whatever. Sometimes a journal or even email can be used, but the character journals are not used for this. This is done on your own time, and when your log is done, post it in this community for others to read (and rate it, especially if it has violence or swearing or... other... things... :D ).

-OOC stands for Out Of Character, usually. Here, it will stand for Overly Obnoxious Clone... ZIM made it up himself. ♥

-All Clones are only from earth, since that is only where the machine hit. Characters like the Tallest, or Tak, or any other Aliens who were not present or on earth at the time were not affected by this DOOM matter. So there will only be one of each of them.

Also, there is only one Mrs. Bitters. Because she is Different.

-The story is taking place after the explosion, so the Clones are just starting to pop out. Dib and ZIM have seen their Clones already... So the RPG takes place the day after...

...! I think that is it for now... If I have more rules, I'll add them. And, remember: If you have any questions, just ask!

imhumanreally: Welcome and storyline! - what is an omg rpg?

Hello, you hideous fools...

I mean, hi. :D; My name is Trey! I'm the moderator... and very foolish creator of this RPG...

If you've actually come into this community and you are reading this entry, that means that you've actually taken an interest in the RPG I have attempted to put together! And for this, I commend you. You must have stomaches made of pure steel.

In any case, if you already know what an OMG RPG is, you are one step ahead of the rest. They have become quite a craze right now, and everyone seems to be making them for their favorite fandom. I was no exception. ::hangs head::

I recently got back into Invader ZIM a few weeks ago, and I was tossing many ideas out for an RPG... Because i really wanted to play in one... And, uh, this seemed like a good choice because it did actually seem like something that actually could happen in the cartoon.

/unnecessary background

OMG RPGs have the regular cast, and then they have another cast... a cast of OOC characters... So, on the one hand, we have ZIM. Normal, regular ZIM. Normal, arrogant, insane, stupid, regular Invader ZIM.

And then we have OOC!ZIM.

The person who picks OOC!ZIM (or any OOC! character) can choose to play their character any way they want, though it must be completely out of the norm of the original character. For example, OOC!Gaz could be played sweet and charming, never wanting to waste away her life on games. And she could wuuuuuv her big bwovver...

...Eww.

It's sickening, isn't it?

Not scared yet? Okay! Now that you understand the concept of OOC!RPGs, let's head on into the storyline:

If you read Community information, you kind of already should understand how everything comes about. ZIM is in his lab with GIR, of course. He has a very large machine which alters space and time, and is planning on destroying the humans by sending them all back into the past. When dinosaurs roamed the earth. So that dinosaurs will get rid of them.

So basically, the dinosaurs get to do his dirty work.

And then he would rule a planet of nothingness. NOTHINGNESS.

But he doesn't think of this right now.

He's very special.

Anyway, Dib has caught wind of this plan... Or maybe he was just hanging outside of ZIM's house. Like usual. Who knows. But he gets inside and decides to put a stop to things with ZIM once and for all. ZIM's not worried. He just figures that Dib will be the first to try out his improved time machine.

A BATTLE ENSUES!

It is a mighty battle... With... things....................

Long story short, they aren't careful, and the machine starts to go crazy with all the damage it takes. Dib and ZIM take cover (GIR's... doing something... like a dance... with a moose!), but the machine still explodes! It erupts like a volcano, spewing out sparks over the entire town and as far as the eye can see.

After the smoke clears, it looks as if everything is okay. ZIM is upset over the horrible mess that his lab is in. But he does not have time to worry about that for long when he hears a frightened Dib muttering behind him. When he turns around, he sees what Dib was scared of...

ZIM and Dib are staring face to face with duplicate copies of themselves...

Onto the rules.
