    From the man that brought you "Star Wars...007 style", now comes a brand new epic: "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" [face_flag] !

    Welcome one and all! Feeling patriotic? Want to become an American hero? Just want to role play something fun? Then you have come to the right place.


    G.I. Joe is the code name for America's daring, highly trained Special Mission force. It's purpose: To defend human freedom against Cobra, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world.

    --- 001. Greetings, players. ---

    Agreeing to play in this RPG, you must obey all the rules and TOS of the JC Forums. Please refer to those threads. If for some reason you cannot find those threads, send your commanding officer (the GM) a Private Message.

    This G.I. Joe RPG is based on the original G.I. Joe storyline, NOT Sigma 6. You will be joining the forces of either G.I. Joe or Cobra. You may play more than one character, but don't take on so many characters that you can't keep them all straight. All Joe and Cobra characters are available to you, as long as he or she hasn't already been taken. Dubya_Scott will play as the lead character of both sides (Duke and Cobra Commander), considering he is the GM. If you wish, you may create your own character upon approval from your GM. For approval, send him the Character Sheet(s) of your `made-up` character(s). Keep in mind, there are no guarentees that it will be accepted. The Character Sheet to fill out is below, along with a long list of known Joe and Cobra characters.

    If you are not too familiar with "G.I. Joe", or it's characters, but still wish to play, contact your GM for information. He will help you as best he can. Also, I have provided a few good websites for reference on "G.I. Joe", it's characters, and vehicles:

    I want to be Sgt. Slaughter


    CODE NAME: SGT. SLAUGHTER
    Real Name: Classified
    Joe orr Cobra: Joe
    PERSONALITY, SKILLS, ECT.: Skilled fighter, really in all areas. Drill instructor
    Sergeant Slaughter
    Drill Instructor E-7 (Marine gunnery sergeant) SN: 817-76-981
    File Name: (CLASSIFIED TOP SECRET) Primary MOS: Infantry / Drill Instructor
    POB: Parris Island, SC Secondary MOS: Survival Trainer
    Appearance: brown military hat; brown hair and moustache; silver sunglasses; whistle around neck; green tank top with "USA" on front; red wristbands and black gloves; black pants with white belt and green and black boots
    Accessories: brown baton with gold tip.
    Filecard Information: Just about every member of the G. I. Joe team is qualified to be a drill instructor so it takes a special brand of heavy duty honcho to keep 'em squared away. Sgt. Slaughter fits the bill the way his bullet head fits his Smokey the Bear hat. Let's face it, the man be rough and he take no guff.
    "They say he cut his teeth on a bogey wheel from a Patton tank and that his first words were "Semper Fi." They say that when the Sarge dresses down a boot in Camp LeJeune, the trainees cringe all the way to 'Pendleton. Most boots would rather dive for apples in the grease trap than cross the Sarge. They say he can blow a month's pay in one night in Thule, Greenland. Of course, 'jarheads' are prone to exagerration. We all know it's impossible to blow a month's pay in Thule, Greenland."

    GM Approved!

    CODENAME: Baroness

    REAL NAME: Anastasia Decobray

    JOE or COBRA: Cobra!

    PERSONALITY, SKILLS, OTHER TRAITS: : It is believed that BARONESS received her training in espionage and sabotage at an exclusive training facility run by a former Warsaw Pact intelligence agency. Although she is officially the head of all COBRA intelligence operations, she also has old ties and loyalties to DESTRO, who has his own business and interests outside of COBRA. BARONESS denies that this is an ethical conflict. How can it be? She has no ethics to speak of. The BARONESS is a world-class expert in cryptography, psychological warfare, and bio-chemical skin-irritants. She consistantly places third in the annual COBRA combat pistol championship, but this is no mean feat considering that DESTRO always places second. But in her arrogance she believes that her failure to secure the gold medal is due to political favoritism rather than the quality of her marksmanship.

    APPEARANCE: long black hair; red plated armor suit; black belt and thigh-high boots; black holster on right leg; no gloves; black Cobra insignia on chest. black-framed eyeglasses; black 'Ambush' pistol

    Well, this is somewhat disappointing. [face_plain] I was kinda hoping for a few more people. It might be tough to have a G.I. Joe epic with only 3 Joes and 2 Cobra operatives.

    OOC: Yeah, I'd say its a bit disappointing.

    Hmmm, go through the proper channels. Hit the RPF Intro Service too.

    And then I suppose you've done all you can, save for maybe pulling some strings off stage.

    Could be just a dud idea.... which.... would be strange.... cause it seems alright by me.

    Interesting.....

    Time to hit up this game with an infusion of mathematics!


    CODENAME: Tomax

    REAL NAME: classified informatoin

    JOE or COBRA: Cobra!

    CODENAME: Xomat

    REAL NAME: classified information

    PERSONALITY, SKILLS, OTHER TRAITS: Tomax and Xomat are identical twin brothers. Mirror images of each other, really, with the exception of a scar on Xomat's face. The two provide much of the "brain" behind the scenes of COBRA's operations. Though, they often find themselves in the midst of battle on the field, they really are much better suited to behind the scenes strategery. The two have an amazing link, even for twins. as one can feel what the other does: from pain to pleasure, even to the point of having the same physical outcome for the two brothers. This link has both advantages and disadvantages.

    APPEARANCE: [image=http://www.myuselessknowledge.com/joe/tandxbig.gif]



    CODENAME: Roadblock

    REAL NAME: Marvin F. Hinton

    PERSONALITY: Roadblock is the "heavy gunner" of the Joes, always packing bigger and badder guns. Before he enlisted in the U.S. Army, Roadblock wanted to be a gourmet chef and towards that, was working as a bouncer in order to earn enough money to attend Escoffier School in France. An army recruiter managed to convince him that he can learn to be a chef in the Army. After enlisting, Roadblock found Army food appalling and transferred to infantry where he excelled at using heavy weapons. Roadblock is one of the biggest and strongest members of G.I. Joe. He can carry a fully-loaded M-2 Browning machine gun which can weigh up to 134 lbs. Despite working in infantry, he still maintains his passion for making good food.

    Should we start anyway and give it a try?

    Sorry old-timers, I'm too young to remember the American Heroes. Though I think I know something of the ninjas for some reason. Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, if I recall. Don't remember which is which or what they do though.

    Your profile says you're 18. You must have just missed the huge G.I. Joe craze in the mid-`80's. That doesn't matter. you can still create your own character if you wish.

    Well, it's obvious that there isn't a whole lot of interest in a "G.I. Joe" game on these boards at this time. A few people, yes, but the G.I. Joe story is so huge that we'll need more than 4 people to play. So, sadly I must PM NP or LSA to close this... I hate to do it, but....

    Before I leave you, I just wanted to give a Public Service Announcement:

    - - - - - - - - - -

    (Cast: Kid 1, Kid 2, and Flint)



    Hey! Nobody's joining my new RPG.

    That stinks. It was a really cool idea.

    Maybe I'll just send PM's to everybody and post in all the threads to tell people to come join.

    No. Don't do that.

    Flint!!

    Sending random PM's and posting nonsense like that is called "spamming", and that's against to TOS of the Boards. Everybody has a failed RPG at some point.

    Really?

    Yes. And those GM's generally lock their current RPG to start a new one with a brand new idea. You're eventually going to create a successful one. Just keep trying. It'll happen.

    Wow. Thanks, Flint!

    Now we know.

    And knowing is half the battle!

    - - - - - - - - - -


    Thank you to those few of you who were interested. Keep RPing! [face_flag]
