we need to get this going... let's start posting character info, I had a site that had all the gear, and it's specs, but I can't find it... I'll post when I find it

Found it! http://uscmc.wikispaces.com/?responseToken=8b1e7cd21d96c18a1765de3816142aad

Dred, please tell me if this all looks correct.

An excellent site Vlet!  Looks like everything you need there.  It was obviously written with reference to the technical manual.  The home page also mentions some other sources as well that may be 'non-canon'.

For example the heavy pulse rifle and the pulse rifle sniper version I've never seen before, but they seem like logical extensions, and are definitely in line with the flavour of the rest.

When I can get onto the site, I will edit this post with my Character Sheet. But I call dibs on Tech Support(guy who sets up turrets and hack terminals).


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

well, you even get a nice set of gadgets to use for it too!

my "butt pack" has a one-quart canteen and some emergency rations, plus a signal mirror, fishing line, switchblade and a roll of duct tape

Once again please tell me if I'm being annoying,

but wouldn't it be a whole lot easier to assume you have the standard kit issued to a Colonial Marine for the position in the platoon he is assigned?

If he carries a little something extra, like Hicks' pump action shotgun, then I'd note that.  Otherwise isn't it sufficient to say "This guy's a Rifleman"?

Even though the Marines seen in the movie are a bit motley as influenced by the Viet Nam inspiration Cameron had, there's still a big place for uniformity in Equipment Issue Scale.
