Joecoolyo was an IOT Old Guard regular, iconic for dedicated roleplay and in later games, grand strategy. In the early games, he was known for a handful of mostly-peaceful Israeli states before adopting a much more belligerent attitude in Imperium Offtopicum IV as the Empire of the Rising Sun. He was often lauded for maintaining a sharp division between in-character hostility and OOC cordiality.
Joe was the chief designer and co-GM of IOT5, and created the original Development Thread. While he remained semi-active within the community, his participation in games dropped off sharply after 2011, confined exclusively to the Iron & Blood series and similar games by taillesskangaru.
