G.I. Joe

Recommended Posts

I was listening to a podcast, I honestly can't remember which one, and one of the hosts or a friend of the hosts had put together a G.I. Joe game. I was wondering if that had ever been posted anywhere. I'd love to see it. Does anyone know off hand what podcast that was or who may have designed this setting/scenario?

We mentioned on Finding the Narrative that our buddy Jim did a G.I. Joe /  Predator / Aliens mashup using Genesys, but I can't remember what episode that was.  He ran a one-shot for a few of the guys/gals in the Nerds-International G+ community, but not sure if he's got a setting for it yet.  I'll reach out to him and see.

Or you might be talking about where the Order 66 hosts talked about the people at the Staggering Dragon ran their own GI Joe adventure at GamerNation con.

They don't have an official site to my knowledge but if you are in to social media, they do have a Facebook Presence.

It looked awesome, and I regret not getting a chance to play it.

That would be me. I've got a fun one shot i've been tuning up and occaisionally run in person (with fun props) and via fantasy grounds, and also a campaign setting. Was on hold til post terrinoth, so I should probably read it and update accordingly. Vehicles need some love too. Covers '82-94 timeline, heavily influenced by the comics more than the show (ie, normal weapons, only a few ppl have actual lasers), rules for creating your own Joes, couple campaign specific skills, couple of custom rules, been converting missions from the comics to adventures.

This idea appeals to me, but I'd probably drop the Aliens/Predator portion unless I went long-term with the campaign.  If I did go long-term, I'd try to work in all kinds of 80's IP in addition to Aliens/Predator.  

A session where the Joes have to work in conjunction with the NYPD to stop COBRA and wind up working with a cop named John McClaine.  A session where the Pentagon hands over control of G.I. Joe over to a private corporation named Omni Consumer Products.  A session where the Joes are tasked with running a protection operation for philanthropist Matt Trakker.  Heck, maybe a session where COBRA has taken over and occupied a small town in Colorado named Calumet.  And there's a good chance that there would be sessions where the Joes have to work in conjunction with WWF wrestlers to fight COBRA.  

I'd also require all of my players to go online to one of the File Card generators and make their own for their character.

Dusting off and using that GM binder thing formatting style I saw. It generated horrible html code, so I ripped it apart and turned into a pure html only template instead of... whatever gm binder uses.

Anywho, motivated to finish the setting now.

That would be because GM Binder uses CSS to format documents for both web view and PDF export. You can use some html functionality, but overall it’s CSS Styles. I have several documents I’m working on with a couple of different styles. It took me a while to understand CSS since it was my first exposure, but now really rocking it. :)

Oh the css is fine (mostly, it uses an improperly escaped unicode character for bullets, had to fix that), it's how sections and divs are generated. unclosed tags, wierd nesting. I presume it's from some interpreted markup language used, like bbcode or something similar. I straightened all that out and heavily cleaned it up. It's purdy now.

I'd love to get better copies of these.  I can't really read these on any device I've tried.

I had to shrink them to get under the file size limit.

I'll be posting a link to the full setting document once It's in a more feature complete state sometime this week. These are actually a little old and need to be updated as some minor setting stuff changed since I first created them months ago.

I figured that.  Consider me waiting with bated breath.
