View Full Version : Fighting a Losing Battle: Gorillaz Roleplay (PG 13 brief mentions alcohol/tobacco
December 15th, 2005, 03:55 PM
I always start RPs for the fanfics I can't figure anything out for...
Plot: 2D and Murdoc get into a big argument over... a box of cigarettes and a lava lamp? Because Murdoc stole both of them... In the middle of the conflict 2D gets a new girlfriend and Murdoc likes her. LOVES her, more like. He won't leave 2D alone about her and this causes even more conflict and anger between the two. Then 2D steals some of Murdoc's money as revenge and this causes a fight to break out between the two. Will 2D lose the fight? Will 2D's girlfriend fall for Murdoc? Who IS 2D's girlfriend? We can only wait and see... The RP takes place in Kong Studios, of course. Russel tries to break them up several times but refuses to hurt 2D and Murdoc... Well, he runs too fast. So then Noodle talks to both of them and that doesn't work, either. Now for the details... And more story to it...
One night Tazar(see below) goes to visit 2D. While Tazar was there, Murdoc sneaks silently into 2D's room. He steals a lava lamp 2D has in there, and a pack of cigarettes, because he had run out of his own. He managed to get back to mthe Winnebago without being seen, but after Tazar left that night and when 2D went to his room he found out what Murdoc had done and got really, really mad. He stormed out to the 'bago and yelled at Murdoc. Later, 2D goes to a bar and picks up a girl. When he comes back with the girl Murdoc likes her and starts pestering 2D about it. Later, while Murdoc is out, 2D discovers that Murdoc left the Winnebago unlocked and goes in there to find something he can take for revenge and finds a twenty dollar bill on the floor. He takes that and when Muds is back he notices and punches 2D right in the face. 2D fights back, and despite Russel's efforts to break them up and Noodle's efforts to simply calm them down, they continue fighting until one of them goes down...
2D: ~`PadfootPuppy`~(soon to be bluehairedfreak)
Tazar: ~`PadfootPuppy`~(he's not in the fanfic yet but I'll make him one of 2D's friends or something...)
Description: Tazar always wears shirts with wolves on them. He has gray wolf ears and tail. He always wears blue jeans and black boots, as well as a necklace with a wolf. His hair is blond and very, very hard to describe... Sorta like 2D's, but flatter, because when I drew him he was SUPPOSED to be me... His eyes are blue.
Personality: Tazar is shy on the outside but on the inside he has a raging desire to just turn around and kill someone, anyone... He collects daggers and anything wolf. He listens to the Gorillaz' music all the time and is friends with 2D. He is rather clumsy most of the time. All he ever drinks is Mountain Dew because he used to be addicted to alcohol but decided to get addicted to caffiene instead. He also smokes sometimes but not very often.
The Gorillaz are copyright to Kong Studios.

The plot...its too insufficient...it doesn't even go by forum standards...I think you should really extend it...and be more detailed...otherwise a mod'll close this..
December 15th, 2005, 04:11 PM
Any better? I edited it... I didn't a plot had to be 5 pages long.
December 15th, 2005, 04:17 PM
Three main things are needed in a plot:
Originality: Which will draw members to the RPG, the last thing you want to do is a have a plot about a bunch of trainers going on a journey as you would see in the Pokemon Anime, no, you want a good story with a few plot twists. We are not stopping you from starting a Trainer RP, but it would be an idea to add a few plot twists and some adventure, this is what draws members to your RPG.
Detail: Description, History and emotions all come into the detail of a Plot; with out detail the plot will have no feel and therefore not attract members. Were not saying it has to be a 14 page essay, but make it more than 4 lines and add some description into it to allow members to have the idea of what the plot is about.
Interest: Originality and Detail all come into the interest of the plot. You want to draw members to the RPG so make it interesting by adding a few plot twists and furthermore, just making up your own story.
Try following the thingy and try rewriting the plot. So it makes people want to join your RP and drives it away from being hopelessly destroyed..
December 15th, 2005, 04:25 PM
BETTER? I don't know what to PUT...
December 15th, 2005, 04:31 PM
Well you can do a paragraph or two. Begin with an intro then move your way into the RP, the characters, some background on where the RP takes place and other important details. Get your readers a feel of the action before they really get into it. If you can't do that then I suggest you ask a mod to close this and do a new and improved RP.
December 15th, 2005, 04:37 PM
I'll try that. ^^; Pika-mew, I see you... Join. 0.o;
EDIT: OMFG I can use DETAIL!!! Wowwwww..... 0.o;
December 15th, 2005, 04:40 PM
I'll try that. ^^; Pika-mew, I see you... Join. 0.o;
I see no Pika-mew here. *shifty eyes* And what happened to your other RP, the crossover one? *sprints toward the exit but falls*
December 15th, 2005, 05:09 PM
It died. Join... RAWRNESS.
December 15th, 2005, 05:25 PM
*looks at Padfoot nervously* Okay, okay, I'll join. Please don't eat me. o.o I don't really know who the Gorillaz are though. :nervous: *sweatdrop*
December 15th, 2005, 05:33 PM
ARGH!!! Why? 0.o; WHY???? **** you, go look up on google image search 2D Gorillaz for pics of 2D. ^^
December 15th, 2005, 06:35 PM
o_O Okie.... *replies so as not to disappoint her friend and, more importantly, to not be murdered*
Name: (lessee, Gorillaz-ish name, Gorillaz-ish name....) Amy. XD
Description: She has long brown hair(somewhere between shoulder-length and waist length) that she usually ties in a braid with a black ribbon. She always wears black clothes, usually with an insult written somewhere on them. Her favorite shirt has a white falcon design on it. Along with these black shirts, she wears jeans or black pants(wow a lot of black XD). Around her neck she wears a sky-blue necklace with a teardrop-shaped sapphire on it. She has sad, distant green eyes that always make it seem like her mind is somewhere else.
Personality: Quiet, distant, thoughtful, and dreamy, Amy barely ever says a word. As a child, she lived with her grandparents in the country and grew up without much human contact. As a result, she has no friends, and usually people don't even try to talk to her. She tries to be kind to people but can't help being a bit cold sometimes. A highly depressed person, Amy prefers the company of animals to people, and never lets anyone in.
That thorough enough for ya? ^-^
December 15th, 2005, 06:39 PM
http://www.sttproductions.de/other/gorillaz/gallery.htm Here, pics of da whole band. ;3
Yaarrr, 'tis. Maybe you'll get to be Stu-pot's gf... We will never know...
December 15th, 2005, 06:47 PM
Uh-oh... *dun dun dun* Though, that would be an interesting part to play. ^-^ We'll just have to wait and see.... Gah, where are....people? 0.o
December 15th, 2005, 06:51 PM
I will eat you if you don't hurry up and post in YOUR RP. 0.o; ****, I'm spamming my own RP.
December 19th, 2005, 09:10 AM
*bump* Sorry about teh double post... *poketh*, but I'm going to start this RP.
December 19th, 2005, 09:12 AM
Coolness! ^^ We shall be waiting.
December 19th, 2005, 09:21 AM
*AHEM* *coughcough* I can't RP Murdoc too well, bear with me... XD; Tazar's nickname is Tuzzcat, btw. And If anyone else joins they're welcome to play the rest of the band! ^^; Amy, can you, like, play someone? 0.o;
The doorbell rang at Kong Studios. 2D threw his magazine against the wall in his room and ran down the hall to answer the door. "Hello, Tuzzcat, love, come in," he said as he opened the door. The 27-year-old stepped in, a cigarette hanging loosely from his mouth, and a dagger fro his collection hanging from one hand, as usual. 2D led his friend into the living room and they sat down on the couch. "Hey, Stu-pot, where's Muds? Didn't see him in the 'bago..." Tazar asked. "'E's probably in there asleep," 2D replied with an awkward smile.
"Whatever," Tazar muttered.
December 19th, 2005, 09:30 AM
OOC: Who? o_O
A girl stood on a nearby street corner, watching from there as a man entered Kong Studios. She was clothed entirely in black, aside from the fact that her black t-shirt had a white picture of a falcon on it. She flicked a bang out of her distant eyes so as to see him better, just as he disappeared into the room. Sighing, she slumped against the wall of the nearest building, her hands unconsciously fingering the teardrop-shaped gem around her neck. "Life is so dull," she murmured, staring at it.
December 19th, 2005, 09:42 AM
OOC: Forget it... XD; I can probably do it if I can write them all into a fanfiction. 0.o;
After a few hours of watching TV, 2D said, "C'mon, let's go into m'room." He led Tazar down the hall to his room. "Wot... wait a minute, where's m'lava lamp?" "Murdoc," Tazar muttered and rushed out of the room. 2D was close behind. "MUDS! Get out here, now!" he roared at the door of the Winnebago. The door opened. "Where did you put my lava lamp? And my cigarettes?" 2D growled. Tazar was aiming his dagger at Murdoc's chest. "Dunno, dullard. Why're you asking me?" Murdoc asked.
"Because I don't think Russ and Noods would've touched either!"
"Get outte here, dullard. Never come back, either."
"I think I should go home," Tazar muttered. He left, walking down the sidewalk and not even paying attantion to the girl. 2D stormed after him, but he just wanted to cool down. Unlike Tazar, he noticed the girl. He stopped and looked at her. "Have you beeen watching the whole time?" he asked her.
December 19th, 2005, 09:51 AM
The girl was momentarily startled at being addressed directly, as she was used to just being ignored by most people. "Hmm? Oh, um... y-yes. Yes I was." Feeling embarrassed and awkward, she turned her gaze to the ground. "Sorry," she murmured, staring fixedly at her feet. "I dunno what was happening, but I know I probably wasn't supposed to see it...." Her voice trailed away as she became lost in thought, as it did often. "Sorry," she said again, even more quietly.
December 19th, 2005, 10:03 AM
"Err... What's to be sorry about? I'm just not a pretty sight when I'm mad." He laughed. "They say there's a reason angels never scream. 'dyou wanna come t'my place for a little while?" He grinned awkwardly. "A word of advice if y'do: stay away from Muds." He popped a couple painkillers in his mouth and lit a cigarette.
December 19th, 2005, 10:13 AM
"Um...sure." She smiled nervously, glad he wasn't mad that she'd seen anything. Letting go of the sapphire, her hand disappeared into her pants pocket, pulling out a small bottle of anti-depression pills. "Thanks for reminding me," she said, gesturing to his painkillers and popping one of the pills into her mouth.
December 19th, 2005, 10:21 AM
"You're welcome. Wot's yer name?" 2D asked. "Y'might know who I am." He started walking back to Kong Studios, confident that she'd follow.
OOC: Crap post... But I don't want to powerplay, so it had to be. I can't force you to follow unless I'm going to drag you down the sidewalk.
December 19th, 2005, 10:30 AM
OOC: It's understandable. And I think I might change Amy's past....
IC: "My name is Amy," she said, hurrying after him. "No offense, but I don't know who you are, being the media-deprived streetrat I am. I'm sure normal people would...." She took a moment and scanned him up and down, from his shock of blue hair to his shoes. "I'm sure I've heard of you at one point or another, though," she noted, popping another pill into her mouth.
December 19th, 2005, 10:36 AM
"Not everyone has heard of the Gorillaz, actually. I'm Stuart, y'can call me 2D," 2D said, turning into Kong Studios. "Y'can stay here if ya like, love, I'm sure the guys won't mind."
"Hey, 2D, who's that?" Russel asked as 2D and Amy passed through the kitchen. "Her name's Amy, and I'm about t'find out who she is," 2D replied.
December 19th, 2005, 10:49 AM
"Erm...hi," said Amy shakily, giving Russel a bashful but warm smile as they passed. "Who else lives here?" she asked 2D curiously, interested. One moment she had been out on the street like usual, the next someone was introducing her to his home. She had never met anyone this kind before in her entire life. It was such good luck, such amazingly good luck, that it was also a bit overwhelming. She swayed on the spot for a moment, feeling kind of dizzy.
December 19th, 2005, 10:57 AM
"Well there's Muds, he lives in the ;bago, and then there's Noods." He paused. "And a couple zombies here and there, but Cortez, Muds's crow, keeps 'em away. That ****ed bird also keeps me away when it's hanging in t'car park. C'mon, m'room's this way." He led her down the hall to his room. "It's a bit messy, I hope y'don't mind." He grinned sheepishly and sat down on his bed.
December 19th, 2005, 11:18 AM
"No, no, it's quite alright." Amy smiled softly and sat down next to him. "Not a bad place you've got here," she said, looking around. "I think it's starting to grow on me already." Fingering her necklace unconsciously, she took in her surroundings, wondering as she did so what it was like to live here. Probably a lot better than living in an alley, that's for sure, she thought, feeling the sapphire in her grasp.
December 19th, 2005, 11:28 AM
Noodle practically bounced into 2D's room suddenly, throwing the door open. "Hey, 2D-san! I-" She stopped, noticing Amy. "2D-san, who is this?" Noodle ask. "This is Amy. Amy, meet Noodle," 2D said. "Hello," Noodle said to Amy. She sat next to 2D, on the side that Amy wasn't on. "Noods, can you, uh... leave?" 2D asked awkwardly. "What for, 2D-san?" Noodle asked. 2D remained silent, looking down at the girl.
December 19th, 2005, 11:39 AM
Amy looked at the other girl awkwardly but, strangely, couldn't bring herself to meet her eyes. She looked from 2D, to Noodle, to the floor, to 2D again. She wasn't able to hold any one of them in her sight for longer than two seconds. Looking a little nervous, her eyes finally rested on the floor again, staring at it fixedly and avoiding the other two's eyes.
December 19th, 2005, 11:47 AM
"You all right, Amy?" 2D asked, looking at her now. "She doesn't bite." He laughed. "C'mon, you haven't met Muds." He stood and led the way back down the hall and out to the car park where the Winnebago stood. Noodle went back to her own room, meanwhile, realizing that this was not the time. "Muds! You in there?" 2D called. The door opened. "What d'you want, dullard? I thought I told you to never come back." He slammed the door shut again. "Well, now you've met Murdoc. Y'want sumfink t'eat?"
December 19th, 2005, 11:54 AM
"Oh, thanks, I would appreciate that," said Amy gratefully. "I haven't eaten in a while." She then looked over at the winnebago. "Er...he's not exactly nice to you, is he?" she said awkwardly, staring at it.
December 19th, 2005, 12:01 PM
"Nope. But 'e did save m'life once. Sorta." He lead the way back to Kong and into the kitchen. "Wot d'you want, love?" he asked her. "We've got turkey, fruit, bagels, and a bunch of other stuff that's sorta disgusting. T'me, anyway." He smiled at her. Russel was still sitting in the kitchen when they reached it. "'Ey, Russ, get the pretty lady somfink t'eat."
"Do it yourself, 2D. I'm busy."
"Doing wot? Eating?"
OOC: XD That made me laugh for some reason.
December 19th, 2005, 12:23 PM
OOC: *cracks up* Me too. XD
At 2D's title for her, Amy blushed. "No, it's okay, I can fix something," she said indifferently, going to the fridge and opening it. In it were exactly the things 2D had mentioned, plus a few more. Deciding not to be picky, she pulled out the first thing she saw, a bagel, and closed the door. "Thank you," she told 2D gratefully, taking a bite.
December 19th, 2005, 12:33 PM
"Yer welcome," 2D said, smiling. For himself he pulled out a bottle of soda and poured a glass. "D'you want some?" he asked, turning in her direction.
December 19th, 2005, 01:08 PM
"Sure," she said, smiling at him. "Thanks." Setting a glass on the table, she continued, "You're a really kind person, 2D. I...I've never met anyone like you before." She met his gaze for a moment, before returning her eyes to her feet.
OOC: Awww..... Eee, this is fun! :D XD O_O;
December 19th, 2005, 01:19 PM
OOC: Yes, much more fun than t'bloody HP RP. ._.; N.OF.I.(no offence intended)
2D poured soda into her glass and shoved it back across the table at her.
"He can be," Russel said. "It's probably the reason why he's the fans' favorite.
(here comes Me in RP Form as the rabid fangirl, just to be random. XD In my RPs, the more randomness the better. XD;)
Just then the doorbell rang. "I'll get that," 2D said, rushing out of the room and down the hall. He opened the door and a ball of black, orange, and blue hit him square in the chest, knocking him down. He yelled loud enough for someone on the other end of the building to hear.
Russel stood abruptly, knocking his chair to the floor, and rushed out to where 2D was. "Hey, little girl, get off 2D and tell us what you're doing here."
"OBSESSING!!!" Kayota(me! ^^;) yelled at the top of her voice.
"Err... Okay..." 2D said slowly.
"2D OMG I LOVE YOU OMFG!!!!" She shoved a bunch of drawings of 2D(and one of Murdoc) into his hands. "Okay, enough with the hyperness. Can I stay here?"
"Wot for?" 2D asked.
"Because I have no parents. They were murdered by zombies."
"Oh. Sure then, little girl, just don't tackle 2D again and it'll be fine."
If she had a tail it would be wagging. She grinned happily and followed 2D and Russel back to the kitchen.
"Wot's yer name, little girl?" 2D asked.
December 19th, 2005, 01:52 PM
OOC: None taken, and if it was I'd deserve it... >.>
"Hello Kayota!" said Amy brightly, smiling gently at the girl. She could sympathize with her situation, as she knew how hard it was to grow up on your own. Though, the girl didn't seem too upset about it at the moment... Laughing a little internally at how eager Kayota was about meeting 2D, she walked up to the girl. "Nice to meet you," she said, offering her a hand.
December 19th, 2005, 02:01 PM
"Hey, wait a minute, I don't know you," Kayota said, ignoring the offer. She kept staring at 2D. And then Murdoc burst in. "TUSSPOT!" he roared. "Wot, Muds?" 2D sighed. "You took something from me." "How could I've? You've bin in t'bago this whole time." Murdoc pratically drug 2D out of his seat and threw him to the floor. "No! Don't!" the girl cried suddenly. "Leave him alone, you freak!" she screamed, hurling herself into Murdoc and knocking him to the floor. She pulled 2D to his feet and kicked Murdoc. "See how it feels, dullard," she growled. This time she kicked him hard. "All right, I give up! Let me up, little girl!" Murdoc whimpered as another blow hit him hard in the chest. She stopped kicking the crap out of him and he stood. "You stay away from here, you f***er," Kayota growled. "Err..." 2D glanced at Amy, then at Kayota and back to Amy. Kayota, on the other hand, after Murdoc had left, couldn't help but stare at 2D. He's so HOT, she thought to herself, grinning without realy meaning to and blushing.
December 19th, 2005, 04:24 PM
"I'm sorry," apologized Amy. "That was stupid. My name is Amy." Seeing that Kayota's attention was.....elsewhere......she returned her own to the sapphire necklace around her neck shyly. Twisting it between her fingers, she stared at it fixedly, not daring to look up. Keep....staring at it.... she thought, concentrating on it and nothing else.
December 19th, 2005, 04:29 PM
OOC: And the leave... XD She was weird, no?
Kayota randomly left the studios. 2D just stared after her and let her go. "Strange," he muttered under his breath. "Hey, Amy, it's gettin' late. D'you want to sleep in a guest room or... or..." he trailed off and looked at her.
"With-" Russel started.
December 19th, 2005, 05:07 PM
"Um..." Amy blushed, looking nervous, excited, and a little scared at the same time. "Um....um...." She found it was extremely hard to talk. Wiping a bead of sweat from her forehead, she could feel herself turning red. "I d-don't need a guest room," she said shakily, blushing crimson. Avoiding the other two's eyes, she looked from the ceiling to the floor to the ceiling again, unable to say anything more.
OOC: Me wonders if this is the right choice for Amy to make, what with what it might lead to. 0.o; Oh well. I shall accept the call of fate, and that call is...
December 19th, 2005, 05:14 PM
"All right, so-"
(Russel: 0.o; Me: XD)
2D led the way to his room. (*glances at hot pic of 2D in his room with no shirt* :3) When they were there he removed his shirt and sat down on the bed. He plunged his hand into his pocked for his painkiller, popped a few in his mouth, and set the bottle on his bedside table next to his ashtray. He gazed at Amy with a sort of longing look on his face, sighed, and lay down on the bed. "You don't haff t'sleep in here, ya know," he said to her with a little smile.
December 22nd, 2005, 12:36 PM
"I...I know," Amy replied, rapidly turning red. "If you d-don't want me to-" Blushing, she stared at the floor, trying with extreme difficulty not to look at 2D. "I can sleep in the guest room if y-you like," she managed to stutter, looking fixedly at her feet. "It doesn't m-matter." Finally looking up, she met 2D's gaze and quickly looked down again.
OOC: O_O' This is...fun..... **** you and your timidness, Amy-chan. XD;
December 23rd, 2005, 09:40 AM
"No, it's'all right, I just thought you might not 'ave wanted to..." 2D said. He smiled again. "C'mere," he said with another awkward smile. He patted the little space of bed that was left next to him.

I walked into Kong Studios playing my guitar to a song by Green Day called
" St. Jimmy " . Then I saw some empty couches sat down alone in the lobby playing my guitar.
