It was then they received a emergency radio call. The other team had not been successful. Cobra had got the gas. But Scarlett had he the cobras with a homing device. So the players joe team was sent after them.
Cobra had gone to mexico. Where they had set up base in some ancient Aztec step pyramids. The center largest one had the laser mounted to it. On the ground were ASP's and HISS tanks guarding it. The joes came in with a VAMP 2 jeep, and a Dragon fly helicopter. They quickly dispatched the tanks and ASP's. But discovered the main pyramid had a force field around it. They shot a missile at one of the other pyramids and disabled a generator. Luckily doing away with the force fields generator. Which let them at the main pyramid. Diablo used explosives to destroy the laser. Thus saving the day.

Well now I went and did it. This week end I was trying to figure out what I want to do for this mondays game. As I had talked about earlier, in this blog. The Red Dawn using the Fuzion system was one of the front runners. Then I was cruising the Internet sunday. I had a brain storm. Ok a light drizzle but go with it. GI Joe. I had all the stats for the weapons of the time period. That being 1982-1986. The Red Dawn campaign takes place in 1984. I figured I could fake the stats for vehicles. Basing them off real vehicles. Well I prepared a little something if the players were interested.
So I got to the game shop and offered the players a choice. Red Dawn or GI Joe. Well the players surprised me and unanimously voted for GI Joe. Although the group was missing some people. I think they probably would have voted for i too. So we played. It was fairly successful. Had to look a couple things up. As its been a looonngg time since I ran a fuzion game. But it went ok. It also showed me some things I was missing from my red dawn game. (I guess now my GI Joe game)
The players created these characters. "Diablo" a firefly style demolitions expert. "Stingray" a heavy machine gun infantryman. Lastly "Puma" a scout and tracker.The players started off tracing possible Cobra transmissions from the rain forest in Brazil. They were given the choice of boats or air transport. They went with boats. Everyone was assigned a Devilfish. They first encountered on their journey upriver. Barrels chained together. Strung across the river. They avoided these barrels. Thus never messing with them. But they assumed (and correctly) they were make shift mines. They later on sighted and engaged Cobra infantry. Which they blew up with rockets. One of them did take some minor damage in the exchange. They traveled closer to the target and encountered a Cobra Water Moccasin. Which they battled. They took it out, but not before it took out Diablo's Devilfish. They arrived at the closest point to the signal on the river. From here they went inland. They encountered a cobra patrol. Which Stingray quickly quelled on his own. Mowing them down with his M-60. They then approached the area from where the signal came. They snuck up close, undetected. They saw a cobra surveillance port. This guarded and entrance in to ancient ruins. To the side in the clearing was several Fang helicopters. Diablo stealthily circled to the helicopters and set a demo charge. While he did that. Puma took out a guard by throwing a knife at his head. Then they positioned them selves to engage the rest of the guards manning the surveillance port. Diablo blew up the choppers. They the others gunned down the rest of the guards. They then took and turned the guns on the port to the ruins. And proceeded to destroy the guards coming out. It was then that they saw a fang helicopter rising out of the ruins. Strapped to the bottom was a huge green gem. Bigger than any of them had seen. They trying to shoot it down. But were unable. As the fang got away. Diablo threw a couple of grenades over the walls of the ruins. It was shortly after this two cobras gave them selves up. Which they took into custody. One last cobra remained. Taking pot shots at them. Though teamwork they cornered and killed the last cobra. They then called a helicopter to gather the prisoners and boats. Returning back to base.

I had fun running it. But I don't think it was my best by any means. But like I said I wanted to keep it simple. So all in all it was good.

Hes been a great character to play. I am enjoying it a great deal.
Conan's Father: For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts. This you can trust. [Points to sword]
Conan: Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

But wait theres more. The group meets up at the FLG/CS (friendly local game/comic store) Well the store is closing. The last day it will be open is the 31st. Which both of us GM's have known for a little bit. Being that we are friends with the owner and such. Anyways so this monday will be my first week back as GM. But I have big choices to make. Do I just continue as previously planned with the pulp adventure. Which I do have to admit I have lost some steam with. Honestly the three weeks off killed my interest a bit. Or do I change it up for another game with special ending. Anyways I have to think about what I want to do.
Now you may think its a sad time. With the shop closing and the group breaking up. This is not true. This is a new beginning. A chance to rebuild the group. A new location without all the politics from before. With only the people we want there. As their are few people that its hard to kick out being they have been there so long. Not to mention as stated before the inter store politics. Well this is no more. A new start! A new beginning!
FLG/CS. A group barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild the group. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic gaming group. The old group will be that group. Better than the group was before. Better, stronger, faster.

We were trying to escape a cave system. That had these cursed idiots trapped in it. Well push came to shove and the cursed idiots killed me.
Aust was a brutish elf and a semi decent ranger. He'll be missed.
