    BASED ON THE RPG COLD WAR: FROZEN HELL BY KnightHawk.

    Setting: Earth, 2009 (Early February)

    The world seems at relative peace. The United States has finally 'won' the War on Terror. Osama bin Laden has been captured and tried in the Hague. Saddam Hussein has been executed by the new Iraqi government for crimes against humanity and the United States has finally pulled its troops out, except for a small observation and advisory force to help the fledgling Iraqi government.

    In the rest of the Middle East, a new Iranian president has promised to improve its relations with the West, including Israel. A new Palestinean State with a democratically elected government has begun to reign in the terror groups operating its boundaries and is on the eve of signing a non-aggression pact with the Israeli government. China, fearing an international incident, has finally forced its North Korean cousins to disarm its nuclear arsenal.

    However, all is not totally well. In the Russian Federation, the economy has worsened and internal conflicts have gotten bigger. Despite vast resource holdings in Siberia, the Russian government seems unable to stem the depression that's looming. The military, as with its Soviet predecessors, is becoming more and more politically powerful, fielding numerous local, state and national-level politicians. Fearing a military autocracy, a new Communist Party, led by one of the most charismatic men in all of Russia and (secretly) funded by China, has formed. With Presidential elections upcoming, many political experts fear that Russia is on the brink of collapse.

    In the United States of America, a new president has been elected, promising to repair all political and economic damage the previous has caused; however, many fear that the new leader may be unable to handle a true international crisis.

    Is humanity on the brink of a new Cold War or will diplomacy and civility prevail? Only time will tell.

    OOC: You can apply for the leadership of a nation. You can be in a nation's military. You can pretty much do whatever you want as long as it makes sense and you have a good character sheet.

    Home Country: Moscow, Russia
    Affiliation: Russian Army
    Employer: N/A
    Position/Rank: Major
    Brief Bio: His father fought for the Army, driving back any enemies that opposed Mother Russia. When he passed away from old age, Ivan decided to follow his footsteps. Through ruthless training and harsh combat, he managed to fly up the ranks until he hit the rank of Major. It's odd that he wasn't married, due to the fact that he doesn't have any motive on women, but he has a lot of friends in the military.

    Fighting battles, winning wars, are two of the things Ivan enjoys. When they lose, he turns psychotic, blaming everyone but him for their stupid efforts. He lost many comrades in these battles, and he fights his enemies, not realizing that avenging their deaths wouldn't bring them back.

    During one battle, Ivan's group leader was wounded and pinned down by enemy fire. The man in second command ordered everyone to retreat. Ivan carried his Mosin-Nagant Rifle and cowardly hid behind cover, the man in command yelled at everyone to fall back. Ivan didn't follow his orders, so he stood up so bravely and fired at the enemy. Firing 5 shots at the enemy, he managed to kill some of them but his weapon jammed. The man in charge couldn't believe what he was seeing, Ivan ran up to his wounded comrade and pulled him to safety. Just afterwards they all left the battle without risking too much casualties. The cowardly man in second command was demoted and Ivan took his place. Ever since he was well respected.

    OOC: Umm, say what? Not to be too picky (last time i did this someone quit the RPG) but the Mosin-Nagant, if you mean what I think you mean (the bolt action) then that weapon hasn't been in service since WW2. Now, since this RPG is set in 2009, thats 65 or so years ago. If you used one then, add 20 or so years for your age. That means right now you are around 85 years old, whereas you say you are only 34.

    Just to clarify, this RPG is not about the REAL cold war of the 60's to 80's era, but of a new conflict in 2009. Thankyou for taking this as constructive critisicm, as I am only trying to help.

    Unless someone else wants to take over GMing this RPG, I am going to shut it down. It does not have enough players to begin and I don't think it will achieve that number.
