Once upon a time?
?or maybe twice?
there was an Unearthly paradise called Pepperland.
80,000 leagues beneath the sea it lay?
?or lie?
I?m not too sure?



Pepperland was a beautiful land, full of vivid colors, music, and happy people?very [I]strange[/I] happy people, but happy people none the less. They got along with their neighboring countries?all but one.

[[URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/ozyssite/image005.jpg]The Land of Blue[/URL]]

Pepperland?s neighbors to the North were everything the Peppers were not. They were not happy. They did not like music. And to them, only one color was acceptable: blue.

The Blue Meanies were mean, as their name implies. But not only were they mean ? they were also nasty, cruel, dastardly and all-around jerks.

One day, the Chief Blue Meanie decided enough was enough. Pepperland had been permitted to exist for far too long. He launched the attack against the peaceful land ? and the Peppers were defenseless against them. Pepperland fell in the space of one day.

Pepperland?s last hope lay (or lie) with Young Fred, an old man who had managed to escape the attack. He fled in the Yellow Submarine, part of the fleet that had brought the Pepper?s ancestors to Pepperland. Guided by some unknown force, the Sub made its way to Liverpool, inexplicably drawn almost directly to the Beatles.

The Beatles agreed to help Young Fred and the Peppers, and thus joined Fred in the Submarine. After meeting Jeremy Hilary Boob, Ph. D. (?Fud?), a strange furry creature who speaks mainly in Carrolian nonsense?


And completing various bizarre, random and most likely drug-induced [[URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/ozyssite/image009.jpg] subplots[/URL]](ooh...bad pun.), The Beatles and Fred arrive in Pepperland to find that the Blue Meanies are completely in control. So, in an attempt to rally the countryside, the Beatles impersonate Pepperland?s Founders ?
[[URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/ozyssite/image011.jpg]Sgt. Pepper?s Lonely Hearts Club Band.[/URL]]

(Please do not ask me why their hair is green. Please, also, do not inquire as to why one of Paul?s pant legs is a different color than the other, or how John is using a trombone and a?er?director thingy at the same time. I cannot answer these questions. I doubt the [I]animators[/I] can answer these questions.)

This heartened the citizens of Pepperland into an uprising. After hand to ?well?word?sort of? combat between John and the Dreaded Glove, and the re-appearance of the original Sgt. Pepper, the Blue Meanies were defeated. Repenting of their lives of meanness, they joined the citizens of Pepperland in the appreciation of music and happiness. The Beatles returned to Liverpool, and everyone lived happily ever after?

Or so the story goes.

But as so often happens and is so seldom told, the Reformation of the Blue Meanies did not last long. At all. It lasted so short that one can doubt that it ever really even existed. As a matter of fact, it lasted about a day.

Now, two months later, Pepperland is again in a state of siege. The valiant Sgt. Pepper?s band is once more trapped inside their blue glass?and this time, they?re not even in Pepperland any more. This time, the Blue Meanies wised up?if only slightly. The Sgt?s Band is imprisoned deep in the land of Blue, far away and through the dreaded Blue Tooth Mountains. Young Fred has again been dispatched to find help?again, the Beatles will come to his aid. But will they be able to stop them this time? Or will music and Pepperland be doomed for all eternity?

Dun dun dun?[/COLOR]


[COLOR=Navy]Hello. Here we go again, right? Right. We're trying this one again.

As you can tell, (if you're one of the...what...5 Beatles fans on this board?) Return to Pepperland is in the same genre as it's original movie.

The main plot is The Beatles and their merry group of rebel Peppers must rescue Sgt. Pepper's Band from the Land of Blue.

There will be side-plots (they have three Seas that they must pass through in addition to the Land of Blue) and the suchlike. There will be lots and lots of humor. Puns and absurdity are encouraged.

If you've read all that and are still interested, there are characters from the original movie who you can play...problem is, most are already reserved.

More info on Characters can be found in the [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?p=694965#post694965]UnderWater[/URL]

Original Movie Characters:

[B]?Young? Fred[/B] - Open
[B]John[/B] - Open
[B]George[/B] - Reserved for Snarktastic
[B]Paul[/B] - Reserved for Grammar Panzer
[B]Ringo[/B] - Reserved for Starrstruck
[B]His Blueness[/B] - Reserved by ME!
[B]Jeremy[/B] - Open
[B]Max[/B] - Open

You don't have to play as a movie character. As a matter of fact, I would like a few original characters. What I need from you is this:

[B]Name:[/B] Anything goes. Humans are still named human names, monsters have...weirder names. Preferably a pun on a stereotypical monster name [Grisnak, etc].
[B]Age: [/B] Humans 10-100, monsters can be anything.
[B]Gender:[/B] Self explanitory. Male, Female.
[b]Species[/b]: Human, Monster, or Meanie
[B]Appearance:[/B] Humans look like humans who dressed themselves while on LSD. Monsters...well...they're grouped into one mass group, "Monsters", but they look like pratically anything. Sky's the limit.
[B]Talents:[/B] This is "Powers" basically. There's a list of powers available in the underground. If you have a new one, PM me and I'll probably add it. Just remember: Music, Colors and Humor are the weapons here. If you play an instrument, add it.
[B]Personality:[/B] Self explanitory.
[B]Bio: [/B] Self explanitory. Doesn't have to be long, at all.

If you are one of the people who have reserved a character, the [i]basic[/i] stats for said character are in the Underground. That's just the base, feel free to tweak it as you like.

If you want to be one of the original movie characters that isn't reserved, just A) PM me, or B) Show me in your sign-up that you've got the character right. I will be picky with the original movie characters, just so you know.

If you are an infidel and unfamiliar with the movie [just kidding!], the transcript is found [url=http://www.freewebs.com/ozysfic/Yellow%20Submarine%20The%20Script.htm]here.[/url] Seriously, this girl is a genius. Trying to transcibe that movie is like trying to herd cats. Trust me.

I hope to have this RP up and running in about two weeks, or around December 15th. Please have your signups done by then.

And I think that's about it...just get ready for one serious trip...[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Purple][B]Name:[/B] George
[B]Appearance:[/B] [URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/ozyssite/image019.jpg]George[/URL]
[B]Gender:[/B] Male
[B]Species:[/B] Human
[B]Age:[/B] 24
[B]Talents:[/B] Guitar, Sitar, Tuba. Can change the color of anything he touches, and can use hypnotism. "It's all in the mind, you know..."
[B]Personality:[/B] Even though he can be more sarcastic than John, he hides it better. He?s quiet, but not because he?s shy?he?s quiet because he doesn?t bother to talk. He?s very intellectual, but doesn?t feel the need to go around bragging about it.
[B]Bio:[/B] George was born on a farm in Pepperland, where he lived until he was about 13. Life on a farm isn't exactly filled with the excitement a young boy would enjoy (even in a place like Pepperland), so he ran away to England -- not knowing that it was about as drab as Pepperland was colorful. Unfortunately, he was in an accident which caused him to lose all memory of his past.

So, now, here he was... stuck in Drab England. His "strange" powers then chose to manifest themselves, and he was shunned by most of the drab people. He soon found himself living on the streets of Liverpool. Fortunately, he wasn't on the streets long, for he found three young men just as strange as he was -- John, Paul, and Ringo. They offered him a place to live where he could be accepted.

Even since their first adventure in Pepperland, George has begun to recover his memories of his life before Drab England, but everything's still a bit fuzzy...[/COLOR]

[COLOR=DarkRed][B]Name:[/B] Ringo

[B]Appearance:[/B] [URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/ozyssite/image023.jpg]Ringo[/URL]

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Species:[/B] Human

[B]Age:[/B] 27

[B]Talents:[/B] Drums, trumpet, some guitar. Can pick up seemingly non-existent items?like holes. 'ow do you pick up a hole? That 'as got t' be some sort o' talent?also applies to manipulating various molecules. We?re sure this is a useful talent some'ow?listed as Metaphysical/atomic manipulation

[B]Personality:[/B] Loveable. Not much more to say than that. 'e 'as a somewhat odd sense of 'umour, and an unbelievable ability to attract trouble. Very friendly and caring, he insisted they bring along Jeremy, din't 'e?.

[B]Bio:[/B] Ringo is the only child of the King of the Crimson Court who rules a land not far from Blue. He was left in Liverpool as a child and they never bothered to pick him back up for reasons unknown.

He started working when he was twelve and moved from job to job ranging from window-washer to pickpocket. He quit his last job as insurance agent because of the whole "hole" thing.

At age 22 he met John who also seemed to have weird powers. Declaring that the world at large was not worth of talents such as their own (Or possibly to save on rent money) the two bought a house. Ringo doen't actually pay much of the mortgage himself due to the hole in his pocket.

Ever since their first visit to Pepperland Ringo has longed to go back[/COLOR]
