We've hit the Locust hard, now time for the knock-out!

It's two months after the detonation of the Light Mass Bomb. The Locust are being beaten back from the scorched land of Sera. Humanity is finally making a come back.
A platoon of some of the greatest COG Gears have been organized to take the continent. The Locust still have fight left in them, but this is where it ends.

I was wondering if anybody would be interested in a Gears of War RP...
The Rp would begin two months after the Detonation of the light mass bomb, the once beaten humans are finally making a daring comeback against the Locust Horde, beating them out of most of the major cities on the continent, taking back much needed Imulsion facilities that will help power their weapons of war. Colonel Hoffman and several other High Ranking commanders of the COG have compiled a platoon of the most elite Gears, five of which is the renowned Delta Squad. This crack-team will be sent on a hell-bent mission diving deep into the underground network known as the Central Hollow. To deploy another, much stronger, light mass bomb. If this plan is to succeed, it will need daring leadership.

The time for revenge is now. Join. Fight. Win.

If this can get off the ground, I'll post a character sheet later.

I could, quite possibly, love you...

I do not have an xbox 360 so i know nothing of GOW. But i always lobe a good military based RP, if you can give me an in depth run down of the story and the world and the enemy, I will most likely be in on it.

Save the love for a chainsaw in a Drone's face DK...

"What?! They're just twisted inside...literally!"

07/17/2007 5:06 PM

EM, a good link for finding the run down on GoW is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_War It'll tell you everything you need to know.
From working the Lancer, to pressing your foot down into a Locust's skull.

Hey...what if I want to BE a locust...One of the big ones....and a nasty one at that...

07/17/2007 5:17 PM

I'm gonna' have to say no, I personally think it'd be kinda' hard to handle players on both the Locust, -and- the COG.
But if you want I'll have a character sheet up by the end of the night.

07/17/2007 5:35 PM

Well i would like to join :)

07/17/2007 5:40 PM

I'd say that's enough for an Rp.

I'll have the character sheets up soon, anyone else who wants to join say so.

07/17/2007 6:39 PM

Rrrriiiggghhhtttt...If no one else is announcing joining, I'll put up the character sheet.

Name: (Typical)

Age: (once again...Ty-pical)

Gender: (If there's a female COG, well, that'd just make my day. Now wouldn't it?)

Appearance: (Y'know...)


Weapons: (Please keep it to COG weapons. Hammer Bursts, Torque Bows and Boomshots'll be plenty available underground people.)

Specialties: (Sniper, Medic, Automatic Rifleman, yes...I said automatic rifleman, I'll explain)

(Now wouldn't it be fun to have a hand-held troika? No...You can't have RAAM's gun. But what I have gone and done is designed a weapon based off the Lancer. I took off the Chainsaw [don't complain] and added a large carrying capacity, making it a SAW. It's pretty much the same save for it fires faster and carries more rounds. Anyone who wants that just go ahead and take it.)

07/17/2007 7:41 PM

if you want me to join you are gonna have to explain everything in detail for me. I need to know about each weapon, that way i can choose my role. Also what are the COG's? What do they look like? What are the locust's? What is the war about? What different classes of locusts are there?

07/18/2007 1:34 AM

I think this would be a lot of fun, so yeah, I'd love to join. I just wanted to go ahead and post to claim the sniper position if that is fine with everyone, and if I can find time in my busy schedule tonight (Psh... Yeah right...) then I should very well have a sheet up in no time...

And to evilmouse, not to take over as GM or anything, but Azrican left you a very detailed site on the first page. Wiki is pretty much the best site for information, as far as its variety goes. Just go there and read up...

Anyways, its been awhile since I've been here so if I'm rusty you'll have to forgive me, but hopefully this will be a lot of fun for everyone. I'll post back soon...

07/18/2007 3:41 AM

yes sry bout that, I missed it between tossing out 5 dozen hot wings at work. Thanks for the link AR, I will be checking it out.

07/18/2007 4:06 AM

Well since you posted I found a little more information, not the most elusive but it was still a bit hard to find, for me at least. Anyways, these are the links for both the GoW Weapons and Characters/Enemies...


That's the link for the weapons, and at the bottom of that page the rest of the weapons can be found, both COG and Locust...


And there's the link to characters and enemies page. I really wish I hadn't forgot how to actually link inside posts. That's what I get for being gone so long...

And for the record, I think I may have sounded a bit hateful in my first reply to you evilmouse, and in the case that it came across that way to you as well, I wanted to apologize. I didn't mean to do anything but help...

Name: Larson 'The Iceman' Frost

Age: 34

Gender: Male Caucasian

Appearance: The armor that Lance wears most closely resembles Baird's, with little restriction on his joints so that he is able to move more freely. He has ice blue eyes, which compliment his silver hair, although the only hair he his is his goatee since his head is shaved. From the bottom of his left cheek to a point a little above his left eyebrow there is a scar that appears to have been made by a knife, a knife that narrowly missed his eye. His weapon of choice, the Longshot, is normally situated at his back unless drawn, with the trigger upwards and butt at his right shoulder. The Snub is holstered at his left side with the butt facing forward. In his left boot he keeps concealed a combat knife, as a last resort. At his right side and extended partly to his back he has a satchel where he keeps his extra ammo for the Longshot and a few extra magazines for his Snub, as well as a few tools for cleaning, adjusting, and if need be repairing his rifle...

Bio: Lance has been with the COG for over fifteen years, joined at the age of seventeen two years before Emergence Day. His keen eye and crack shot put him at the top of his class, and no one but his war game opponents ever complained about his knack for camouflage and stealth. His combat career, however, started many years before that at the age of six, consisting of lessons from his father, a retired sniper from before the COG was formed, and many hours spent shooting away at old targets...

In the COG Lance was able to complete one tour of duty, and went missing during his second tour. No one truly knows what happened to him for the three months after he and his team disappeared, only that he was the only one to ever make it back, rifle at his back, cog tags in his hand, and a scar on his face that would forever remind him of what had happened. The COG probably would have spent more time coaxing the secrets out of him had the Locust not recently made themselves known, and it was for that reason that they didn't think twice about sending Lance right back into the fray once he volunteered...

Since then he has seen more than his fair share of war, and what some would say was too much of the tragedies that can spawn from it. He has completed more tours than he cares to remember, and retrieved enough cog tags to last an eternity. As a result of this, Lance rarely speaks unless of the utmost importance, and he has a very serious personality. At the same time he is somewhat well known within the COG for his uncanny marksmanship and unwavering focus and determination. That, combined with his nature, has earned him the nickname Iceman...

The fame isn't for him, however, and for reasons unknown to anyone but Lance he has turned down several promotions that would take him off the front lines. The only place he is able to find solace now is through the scope of his rifle, cutting down the Locust Horde one head at a time, so when the opportunity of the mission at hand came around, he was more than happy to oblige...

Weapons: Longshot Sniper Rifle, Snub Pistol, two Bolo Grenades and two Smoke Grenades

Specialties: Sniper

I threw the knife in there just for some flavor, but if it is not to your liking just tell me and I can take it out just as quickly as I put it in there. Another thing, I know you will, but feel free to ask me to change anything about him. I would, however, rather you do it via Internal Mail instead of here though, because I have a few things thought up for him that I don't really want told to everyone...

Anyways, I'm going to shut up now until someone else posts, but in the mean time I'm sure The Iceman will keep you guys company... :D :D :D

EDIT: Added a little more detail to the weapons section and then I fixed a few Word to RPGC crossover errors...

I think I can't help but seriously want in on this. I'll post my character up later. At a friends house now.

07/18/2007 3:58 PM

Great, very nice Tamachi, god given.

Take your time to take up a character sheet, I'll be a little busy tonight and tomorrow morning.

Name: Scoot

Age: 41

Gender: Female (hope y'all don't mind.)

Appearance: Scoot is short for a COG, only above 4 foot 7 but jacked none the less. Countless scars, and dim eyes show years of hardship that span before the war even began. With black hair and tanned skin, she doesn't quite have looks that could kill, but that doesn't mean she couldn't slice your throat in an instance.

Bio: Scoot likes to talk about her past, sometimes a little too much for others liking. Scoot didn't wantto be a COG, never dreamed of being one, was never told "Girl when you grow up your going to make this family proud and join the armed forces." Nope Scoot grew up on the wrong side of town, and with the wrong kind of mental condition. Prone to blackouts and slight Schizophrenia, she was once known to flay human beings alive. The habit became noticable, and eventually ended her up in a maximum security prison where she was more than willing to show anybody, man or woman, that she would make them her bitch.

Life was good, in prison she could get away with beating inmates, and no one particularly noticed unless she went a little overboard. And that's where she earned the nick name Scoot, because nobody could run into a fight faster than Scoot. When the war broke out, no one seemed to care who got loose or who got killed as long as who you were shooting were Locust. So being in the wrong place at the wrong time during a heated battle between COG's and Locust she was drafted and kept on as an unwavering soldier.

Now with an outlet for her agression she became less dangerous to those around her and a walking tank more than ready to take a few bullets. Which, sometimes, was to the dismay of the medic.

Weapons: Lancer, oh she loves her Lancer, and is occasionaly fond of the Torque Bow, but nothing beats that beautiful Lancer. Ok ok, a few Bola Grenades never hurt anyone either, oh but her Lancer....

Specialties: Berserker. Fight calls, she's there. And she will kick your butt or die trying.

Hope that is oki doki. Been dying to play a GOW RP.

Great character. Looking forward to seeing the fight.
