    Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Indiana Jones is a high-school teacher, but that is not all. He finds ancient relics, meets with nation's top leaders, and has friends in every country. This time around he is looking for the head of Pharaoh's staff, a device that will point him to the position of the Ark of the covenant...The only thing in his way is Nazis, Hitler, and another archaeologist, Belloq. If the Nazis get it, then the only who could stop them is the God who put them here. It begins as a quest for riches, but will become much more!

    Not a very elaborate story line, but I am not sure you need too much...

    Name: Major Erhard Belzig Toht
    Date of Birth: March 15th, 1889
    Gender: Male
    Age: 47
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 198 lbs.
    Eyes: Green
    Hair: Brown, balding.
    Family: All known family dead.
    Marital Status: Unmarried
    Nationality: German
    Alliance: Third Reich, Geheime Staatspolizei (Gestapo)
    Current whereabouts: Undercover inside United States Army Intelligence in hopes that the Army reaction to a planted Nazi communique will give him enough information to discover the location of Abner Ravenwood and the headpiece of the Staff of Ra.
    Appearance: A thouroughly creepy appearance accentuated by his mostly-bald head and the fedora, black trenchcoat, and black gloves he wears frequently.
    [image=http://www.flyingomelette.com/oddities/sab/toht.jpg]
    Personality: A sinister, cold-hearted, and uncompromising individual, Major Toht is known for his sniveling arrogance and ruthless efficiency.
    Weapons: 9mm Luger Parabellum-Pistole, gang of thugs.
    History/Background: Erhard Toht was born in 1889 to an upper-class German family in Berlin and educated there. While in college, he became an ardent supporter of a Socialist revolution, much to his family's ire, since they themselves had close ties to a number of high-ranking members of the Wiemar Republic. His hopes became reality with the rise of Adoplh Hitler and the Nazi party in the early 1930s. He joined up with the Gestapo and began to eagerly enforce the will of the Reich on the German people. His pivotal turning point came when it was discovered that his anti-Nazi family had plans to evacuate Germany. He singlehandly traveled across Berlin and hunted down every single one of his own family members, fatally shooting each in cold blood. For this act of devotion to the Reich, Toht was promoted to Major in the Geheime Staatspolizei and began to run undercover missions for the organization outside Germany. In late 1935, Hitler directed the Gestapo find the Ark of the Covenant. Toht went undercover in Israel for six months and finally discovered the location of Djanet, more commonly known by its Greek name of Tanis, a long-lost Egyptian capital where the Ark was buried. He also learned that to pinpoint the Well of Souls, the chamber that held the Ark, he would need the Staff of Ra and its headpiece, which was under the possession of Abner Ravenwood, an American professor who had for some time been missing. To find Ravenwood, Toht directed that a communique be sent and intentionally intercepted by the United States mentioning Ravenwood. At the present, Toht has infiltrated Army Intelligence, and is waiting for the Army's reaction.

    OK, the last person I expected to be taken is off the board first....

    Now, you can be people other than the movie characters, meaning you can make your own characters up.

    OOC: The last person you expected? Heh, I was afraid I'd post too late and he'd be taken. I second the question- since you mention character deaths, is this supposed to more or less follow the story, or go in a different direction?

    And more people need to join! Kiskolou, you can be in both RPs simultaneously, you know...

    I agree with thetoastman, you can post on both simutaneously.

    As for it being an AU...yes and no. I want it to follow the basic storyline (Indy finds the idol, Belloq dies, blah blah blah) but I am encouraging seperate storylines. SUCH AS, Indy meets up with a created character and they both do stuff together and go places. All I want the original story to be is a "foundation" to expand on and make more exciting.

    A good example would probably be The Lord of the Rings RPGs done by spacelady. If you joined after those were made, then just go on the above paragraph.

    I am! :) But... you knew that already.

    Come on, people... this is a Star Wars forum, for George's sake! I'd think an Indy RP should be way more popular.

    Character Sheet:

    Name: Marion Ravenwood
    Date of Birth: March 5, 1909
    Gender: Female
    Age: 27
    Height: 5'5"
    Weight: 125
    Eyes: Brown
    Hair: Long, dark brown
    Family: Father - Abner Ravenwood
    Marital Status: Single
    Nationality: American
    Alliance: Allies
    Current whereabouts: Patan, Nepal
    Appearance: [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v291/HSolo29/r09.jpg]
    Personality: Self-reliant and tough as nails. She knows how to take care of herself.
    Weapons: A small pistol
    History/Background: From IndianaJones.com: Although Marion Ravenwood was privileged to travel to some exotic locations as a young girl, the experience was hardly luxurious. She was the daughter of Abner Ravenwood, a notable archeology professor obsessed with finding the lost Ark of the Covenant. The elder Ravenwood would travel the world searching for clues regarding the lost Ark's resting place, and he would bring Marion to some seedy and dangerous locales in his quest.

    It was a lonely existence, flitting from place to place with only her father. Perhaps this is what helped cement a romantic connection with Abner's most promising former student, Indiana Jones, who shared a similar childhood.

    Jones was a 26-year old graduate student when he met Marion, who was still in her teens. Knowing full well that a fling with his mentor's daughter could upset his friendship with Abner, Indy nonetheless continued. Marion would later attribute her love to childhood naivety. Indy sees it differently, though. He recognized the strength of Marion's spirit, and is convinced she fully knew the consequences.

    These consequences resulted in Jones being estranged from the Ravenwoods for a decade. Abner and Indy had a falling out over his relationship with Marion, and the two did not speak for years. Around this time, Abner was dismissed from the University of Chicago. Marion, furious at Indy, found it easy to blame this tide of misfortune on Jones.

    Though no longer affiliated with the university, Abner nonetheless continued his search for the Ark. Following clues to Asia, he eventually wound up in Nepal, where he settled and came into ownership of a rough-and-tumble bar and inn, The Raven.

    Though she loved Abner, Marion was bitter about being stuck in remote Patan, Nepal, having to sling drinks to rude and dangerous clientele, all so Abner could obsessively hunt down tenuous clues. His passion sealed his fate as Abner disappeared in an avalanche, leaving Marion alone.

    Marion took charge of the Raven. With her brawny barman Mohan, she made a living in Patan. She supplemented what meager income the Raven took in by winning at drinking contests, beating burly opponents twice her size. It was still not enough to get back to the United States. In 1936, that opportunity came knocking on her door.

    OK, we got three of the main characters. Though, we need alot more to begin. And I agree with toastman, I thought that since this was a Star Wars site that this would be like the IBOP of the Non-Star-Wars forum!!

    The exact same thought has crossed between my ears, but what if, still, nobody joins? I mean, Marion and Indy skipping through Nepal merrily with Tote shooting at them from behind could be exciting, but no.
