“The year is 1975, the age of détente. The Vietnam conflict is drawing to a close and the world is thawing in the wake of the Cold War. However, as tension among the world’s giant superpowers eased, a tiny military force quietly took root in the Caribbean. A new type of military – an army without a nation, or any land to call home.
Lead by an enigmatic man known as “Snake,” the clandestine group operated in the shadows as elite guns-for-hire, servicing various governments around the world. As their reputation grew, so did their funding and military might. Eventually, rumors began to spread that the group had attained nuclear weapons capability. The alarming prospect of a nuclear-equipped military force existing beyond the confines of the NPT (Nuclear Proliferation Treaty), and without any formal government, prompted demands for immediate nuclear inspection by the IAEA.
At that same time, Snake also received word that “Paz,” a female spy who had once infiltrated his army’s “Mother Base” was alive and being interrogated at a US Naval base on the southern tip of Cuba. The base housed a prison facility – a black-site that could operate outside the laws of both Cuba and the United States, where extreme forms of interrogation were sanctioned. Upon learning of the situation, Chico, a young volunteer in Snake’s army with feelings for Paz, took it upon himself to rescue her.
It wasn’t long before Snake received a distress call from Chico revealing that he had also been captured. With few options left, Snake embarks on a covert mission to reclaim both Paz and Chico from Cuba while Mother Base prepares to welcome its nuclear inspection.
Little did Snake know that this decision would set in motion a series of tragic events that would forever change his fate.”
The Phantom Pain
At some point during the destruction of Mother Base Big Boss is injured and falls into a coma. Recovering from his coma 9 years later in 1984, Big Boss wakens only to discover that he had lost his left arm. Soon after his recovery the hospital he is in comes under attack, but Big Boss manages to escape with the help of Ishmael, a man with bandages all over his face that claims to have been looking out for Big Boss while he was in his coma, and Ocelot.
Big Boss goes on to establish the Diamond Dogs, a new band of mercenaries, and gets himself a prosthetic arm. Big Boss, with the help of Ocelot, locates Kaz who is being held captive in Afghanistan. Big Boss rescues Kaz and the two men plan their revenge against Cipher.

I made this in the MGS forum before they decided they wanted to ruin the community by closing everything. It is probably of more use here now. I also decided to move it here so there is at least one constant thread that all the regulars from the MGS forum can post in, NOT THAT IT WILL EVER BE THE SAME.

i was thinking about making a MGS thread last night, you beat me to it.
Yeah, I wasn't sure if anyone else was going to do a thread so just decided I might as well. Hopefully some of the other guys see this thread.
