Special mentions for KieRor098 for the original thread and Evergreen Gaming for reviving it. This wouldn't be possible otherwise!
About the RP
Welcome to the PvZ Institute, where plants and zombies study to make new friends and to learn more about the world! Those plants and zombies may have been thinking that it's one of those normal institute, but crazy events and activities prove them wrong. They can quit, or stay. Like the usual schools, the journey will be
endless, so have fun learning and interacting!
Summer Sessions Time!
School Year 2016 - 2017 has already ended. The principal of said School Year, Green Shadow, has decided to retire andd assigns a new principal on her place for the next School Year. In addition, she implements a summer version of the Institute. Now, joining is optional, and the students are having a blast on taking summer trips and classes!
This has a small update:
Expect occasional trips to worthwhile places.
The schedule for classes is different for each class. Anyone can choose and own a class, and let the students learn about that class. Can't say "class" multiple times.
Character limit has increased from 6 to 7.
What's with the Phases?
That's only how I divide their "years". The regular PvZ Institute has "School Year" on the mark, and instead of just showing the year, I'm doing this like phases. Phase One is for my 2017 summer time.
Phase One lasts until: July 16, 2017 (I know, I'll stick with my old school which already confirmed the next S.Y. first day, which is the day after this last Phase One day)
You must have a character name template:
Plant/Zombie Type or Name:
All rules can be switched in certain events.
It's possible to make temporary characters that are exclusive for events.
No disrespecting other users.
Use official plants or zombies. You cannot use characters that haven't been officially released.
Have a maximum amount of 7 characters.
Don't use characters that aren't your unless you are given permission.
You will be kicked out if you do not reply for at least 3-5 threads.
They are basically little plots to fill in. Feel free to add what you like! You cannot reserve events anymore. One month left before the Summer Sessions is over.
The Wrath of the Evil Explodonators (PeaVZ108) - The Explodonaters plan to throw a party at their hideout and invite everyone there. However, the gang realizes that something is not right, as the Explodonaters seem to be attacking them instead once they arrived. The party is ruined, but the gang must find out what made them evil. Will the results turn out to be what they expected? (Upcoming)
Revisit (TheO0032) - Repeater's evil twin, Peashooter, shows up, with not friendly intentions. He has a fixed intention on destroying everyone, his main target being Repeater. Can they find Peashooter's weaknesses before Peashooter finds theirs? (Upcoming)
Special rule: No outside forces.
Students vs. Machines (Fairy27) - The strong machined zombie who used to target Cattail now decides to attack the PvZ Institute to conquer it! He uses his machined allies as well. Cattail was returned to Lightning Reed, but something is wrong. Really wrong. Will the two hang along with each other again and will the students stop those machinery enemies?(Ongoing)
Stinger Strike (RodimusPrimeHans-Cuff210) - Stinger has been brought back to life again with a specific weakness, and he plans to destroy the Institute. His clones have taken BBQ's body away and the only thing that can revive BBQ is the Rodimal Orb. Can the Plaximals revive BBQ to counter Stinger in time? (Upcoming)
//Mine just started, although it is possible to hold it off temporarily. The real plot of it starts tomorrow (in the RP, not in real life, by "tomorrow"), very late in the night (not in the morning when the PvZ Institute usually starts its activities), and not in the morning.
Repeater: (walks in) My lab was damaged. The antidote I made was mixed with other chemicals when the serum exploded. It's useless now. My notes on the antidote were directly blown up, and the antidote was derived from the serum, which I had none of. I had a backup sample, but Lightning Reed drank it.
FP: *puts on some Infernite armor* Looks like it's time to get this train into motion. Overvolt, use a time machine to check is Invisiflare's 4th wall-breaking description of what happens is correct. Invisiflare, you need to scout the area with Shell.
Repeater: Guess what? That serum was hard to get. I had to go around to many aleins. In fact, I had to purge the serum from nearly all of them. They'll regrow it in a few years, but I can't do anything else. However, it'll wear off in 3 weeks. The increased concentration multiplied the time by 3.
Repeater: Then, too bad. I got nuthin'. That stuff is impossible to synthesize. There's none left on the planet. The only possible antidotes I was able to find was one that has a 50% chance of success, and a % chance of killing the host, and the one derived from the serum.
9th wave - The most lethal wave. The universe gets fully corrupted, and explodes, wiping out everything until only a white screen and the godly forces called the Roleplayers remain. Only the Roleplayers can restore everything back to normal, as in reverting the Quadmageddon.
Repeater: (If you want their loyalty, you need them to trust you as a leader. If you want to be the leader, just lead them. Tell them what to do, and if you keep having a good judgement, they won't question you as much. That's leadership. But control is easier. So you can gain the loyalty of Mayflower and use her to control the others, or you can gain the loytaly of everybody, which will take much more time.) Previous leader of a certain group.
FP: Mainly Mayflower. (BBQ, I need your guidance.)
BBQ: *appears again to FP and Repeater*If they've gone rouge, then I need you to prove that you saw me, FP. Only that will get you back in command. Repeater, can you help her out with getting back to the Plaxalon? I know that Overvolt and Mayflower's Plaximals will attack FP the moment they see her.
FP: Mayflower can see straight through it because she and I have a mind link, but it's not strong enough to make her see what I see. You'll need to break the mind link. Can you also knock Mayflower out with the ability that was supposed to render her unconcious for an hour on that space lesson? I'm sure it'll work this time. I'll handle the other Plaximals.
//The appearances of BBQ at random times references Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) because during the first season, Optimus appeared to Bumblebee at random times until the moment he got revived.
FP: Sorry Lowtide, you've just washed out! *goes into her Electrolight form and electrocutes Spineapple*
Overvolt: You got him but you didn't get me! *fires an X-zeno Blast at FP, who dodges*
FP: It'll take more than that to stop me! *makes Overvolt choke on rubber for a bit*
RS: You were a fool to think you could deceive us with your "vision" of your dead boyfriend.
Invisiflare: *throws her Infernal Axe at RS* I looked at Rodimus' post and I believe you, FP. *4th wall break*
Shellery: I don't believe that you saw BBQ.
FP: Listen. BBQ appeared to me and Repeater. He told me that the only way to be a leader is to not control you, but to work with you for a common goal. I know that only a wise Plaximal would provide that advice, so it was definitely BBQ.
FP: Mayflower tried to take control of the Plaximals and threw me into a mental asylum for a bit because I had a vision of BBQ, even though he's dead, Akee. Repeater helped me get the Plaximals back to the side of good. I have info on Mayflower's betrayal scheme. *shows Austin all of Mayflower's diaries* Every page says: "Become the Plaximal leader."
//I'm replacing Mayflower with someone else. An old friend and my only character who won't have abilities.
Type: Pylon Imp
Personality: Ready for anything
Bio: As a Pylon Imp under BBQ's leadership at Pylon Corp's building division, he and some other Pylon Imps built monumental structures. He and BBQ got fired by the head Engineer due to messing up, so Constructor became an Institute student, although it took almost an entire year to enroll.
Repeater: Look, I found a way to make a planet-killing bomb. When you creat matter and antimatter, the two of them collide and explode in a large blast of energy. However, if you shoot an anti-electron into a uranium atom, the blast of anti-matter occurs, a proton and electron are sent off and form a hydrogen atom. The energy is high enough to fuse the hydrogen into helium, and eventually into uranium... the cycle continues until it gets inhibited somehow.
//Hey Fairy! I decided to change my event. Replace the Haunted Institute with this.
The Wrath of the Evil Explodonaters
The Explodonaters plan to throw a party at their hideout and invite everyone there. However, the gang realises that something is not right, as the Explodonaters seem to be attacking them instead once they arrived. The party is ruined, but the gang must find out what made them evil. Will the results turn out to be what they expected?
???: Here it comes! *turns around to see Lightning Reed* Oh? You're here...friend. You can see my normal self in a way, right?
Lightning Reed: Then that means...!
???: I'm no longer the usual and normal Cattail you know. I'm a Laser Cattail. CODE NAME: Alpha.
"This Laser Cattail won't stop trying to fire those lasers!"
Plant Type: Laser Cattail
Personality: Same as the normal Cattail but shows no emotions at first and picky, which is a permanent trait
Backstory: Laser Cattail, referred by the zombie who upgraded her as "Alpha", once didn't like the idea of machinery, plus she kept getting captured to make her like this form. Her memory was lost, but not completely, and she doesn't remember her friends anymore, treating them as enemies. She is now shown to be picky at eliminating enemies first and brutally. She also gained some new powers and eliminating her old ones.
//Notice something new while I posted that character template? That's an upcoming but optional little feature to that template. Introducing "Short Description", coming to S.Y. 2017 - 2018 of the PvZ Institute. Just had to make a brief appearance of it, only once.
Alpha: Get ready. Technology will take over here.
Lightning Reed: Technology?! That's not until far from the future!
Repeater closes the portal, at least one end of it.
Repeater: (to CB2) (Tell them that if they want to fight, they can grab a weapon or take an enhancement. Don't use multiple enhancements, but weapons are different. It's possible to transwarp anybody, too.
Reni: Erm... Alright. Let me just search for the DNA of it...
Damn there's a lot of it in there. It has to be somewhere...
Risa keeps shutting Bob's mouth and everything he can do.
Risa: Ugh... Keeping someone silent shouldn't be difficult (I appreciate your efforts. Keep that up for me, please) (Oh no, why you again? What even are you?) (Your mind, what else you would think?) (If it's really my mind, I'll have nightmares because of it)
FP: *gets into Plantes V's Cruiser component with RS in the Bomber, Shellery in the Panzer, Invisiflare in the Frigate and Spineapple in the Lander* V together. *the Plant Machines form a V formation* Let's volt-
All Plantes Plaximals: IN! *the vehicles form Plantes V* Let's stop Cattail!
Overvolt: *fires at the machines with his Hypernova*
Background (History): Used to be an astronaut until she died in a mission when a leak in her spacesuit deprived her of oxygen. She has been revived into a zombie, yet her human family (which she loves even though she's a zombie) don't mind. After all, they're friends with the undead. Back on topic, she's planning to become a student in the Institute after a spot has cleared due to an....uhh....incident during a bus trip.
Reni: Hm. Maybe I could find out what can we do to make you normal.
Risa: It's you! How are you... (next tim know when to shut up. Oh I wish to sometimes revert time to not say what I could say... wait) Maybe we can travel back in time before you got taken and prevent this from happening. You could transform into Thyme Warp, right?
Janet: Ask the Challenger crew or the Columbia crew. They're dead. Well, I died when a hole in my spacesuit drained me of oxygen. I was revived into a zombie, but my family still loves me, and I love them back, even though they're humans. By the way, I'd never eat the brains of a living person. I was a human, after all.
(Flashback; italicized text is the voiceover text)
I was sent to a mechanical room by a mechanical zombie...at least he stated some stuff.
???: I AM GOING TO BE YOUR MASTER. OPERATION WILL START.
Cattail: No! You're too mean for that to use it!
???: DISOBEY AND YOU WILL BE DEAD.
Then I was covered with metal and was about to fall unconscious from it...
???: HEARING MORE SHALL NOT BE IN YOUR NORMAL MEMORY. *eyes glow red* YOU WILL RECEIVE A CODE NAME, AND MY PLAN WILL BE RESERVED IN YOUR MASTER DETECTOR.
Alpha: That was the last time I managed to hear and act as my normal self...now look! I'm a Laser Cattail with no way to reverting it back, guaranteed to be safe! I think I know that zombie's whereabouts, though.
Overvolt: That's a symptom of Eclipsing, a Plaximal term for if someone is pushed to the edge and ends up becoming genocidal.
FP: *draws the Inferno Blade's Corrupted Longsword form* Looks like it's time to do some demolition. *stabs Bob, then attacks some incoming machines*
Invisiflare: Let's join our leader in destroying the machines! *fuses with Shellery into their Electronic Blaze form and attacks some incoming machines with the Infernal Axe's Blazing Executioner's Axe form*
