Here is my Gnasher, here is my shout!"

— Something I'd stole from the forums

This is me (Jack) and yes I know I'm half Kangaroo.

I'm JacktheBlack. If you have any questions concerns don't hesitate to message me or just a plain hate mail please leave it on my talk page :D . I am a gearhead and a big fan of the Gears of War Series and very devoted to the series.

  • I'm on my 3rd 360.
  • I have every released comic and book so far.
  • The only reason I'd join was to make a few battle pages and now I'm a bureaucrat.
  • I support "Bring-Alexandra "alex" Brand- to Gear of War 3 and I'm doing advertisement for Gearspedia by showing the expanded universe.

Our policy

If Epic Games say it canon we will post it.

My policy

Source is always canon. The interpretation is the problem. I have been known to admit I can be wrong on things.

Gears of War Riddles

I did not create this.

  • I am speculated alive yet unnoticeable alive and will burn if you ever decided to swim or give you a very strange illness
  • Trapped for years and held in cases yet when released we are not happy. But what are we?
  • Some people say I'm stupid - they judge me because I'm bulky - I was once taken down in a store on the sovereign boulevard
  • I rule a kingdom and live in a castle but am unlike any other. I am a bird which symbolizes darkness. I drop down to save soldiers.
  • Infested with locust I rage on towards the end in desperation
  • "We are gone now but not forgotten. We lurk in the shadows. Illuminate or die."
  • A workers tool before sunrise

Pet Peeves on Gearspedia and Gears of War

  • Changing Main image on a article.
  • When people say the Queen speak English (Its Tyran!)
  • When someone create an article but dos not put any templates or link it.
  • Uploading images without putting the licenses or replacing the original with something complete different
  • leaving a message that is completely useless like this one
  • Crack pot theories
  • People thinking Sera is a colony of Earth/Sera is Earth.
  • Never mastering the new ref code.
  • When people said Gears are super soldiers. They are not [1]
  • And the number one thing I hate. When people don't trust this wiki since they believe "anyone can edit info and its always wrong".

My Goal

My goal is to expand this wikia too become the most respected Gears of War information site. Rule out the fanon and have the best information for gearshead who are interested in the story and universe of Gears of War. I want this wikia to go beyond the Games and tell the story of the COG. I want the universe of gears explained from their religion too what they eat. I want this too be the wikipedia of Gears of War.
