I didn't put all my ideas down, just the ones that people could figure out in about ten minutes of sitting down and talking to her.

I'm trying to brainstorm more ways to link all her little ideas I have together, and THOSE will be secret-y. PMing is fine, though I prefer AIM or Skype, or MSN, if at all possible.

Wow, that's practically exactly (or at least extremely similar) what I was thinking of doing with my character. He was going to be a Quarian who was working with their Embassy at the Citadel to work on reboosting the Quarians' immune systems now that they had resettled, and would be considered useful in helping the Captain deal with any unknown biological dangers that he might encounter in his quest.

I can actually think of a way they might both work and even work off of each other, but I want to go into any more detail on his character and background since Alliance would disapprove.

Poke at me over AIM, MSN, or Skype then. I'll be here watching Ninja Warrior and looking for possible images for Quarian's under their helmets! XD

I'll keep in in mind, but I was never a big fan of that view of the quarians. Pretty though.

My character will be a Paragade.

I'm making basically the cooler version of Jack.

But instead Male and a Super Biotic. And less angsty like Jack too.

But the way you meet him is cooler too.

Actually I am going to a little.

I'm taking Latooni's idea.

He has a special perk called Push and he takes all the energy from his biotic shields and the biotic power in his body and can make one major push. Like throwing a mako at people.

Let me see here, Revenant, myself, Laughing, Latooni, and Sidhe.

So right now no including me four. Including me five. I will wait for one more person and then start the OOC. Unless someone wants me to write the OOC now.

Are the characters gonna be more ME1 or ME2 styled in their construction (ie loads of little useful skills vs 3/4 mega skills)?

What kind of variations would you prefer? You can see their eyes and noses through the masks, so they have to look sort of similar to that.

I prefer ME1 and am allowing people to basically have 6 skills.

And I already told Latooni this, but I am allowing abilities and skills two ways. Either way is acceptable:

1. Way is to use all the normal skills, basic skills from the class and get two specials

2. Create your own unique abilities and skills. These would be considered specials so you wouldn't get two extra free specials.

Either way I am accepting because I like to give my members freedom and creative freedom. But no god modding in either one. I will be watching out for it.

I was never good with DnD systems and I find character sheets like that tedious. But after every post or so I'll hand out points for you to modify the strength of your character.

1 point for a post

3 points for quest

4 points for major quest

My character sheet will be a modified stat system. Every power starts at lvl 1 and everyone gets 10 points to start out with to hand points into their abilities.

So, would this be alright then? I tweaked some of the canon of the abilities to personalize them (Though Overload is pretty much just a standard one atm) for my Quarian.

Combat Drone: Spawns a tech drone that draws enemy fire and can stun targets while damaging their shields. This particular drone uses slower, stronger bolts of energy than the standard drones do.

Overload: Overloads an enemy's shields, shutting them down and making them vulnerable to attack. At higher levels it can even cause weapons to overheat.

AI Hacking: Temporarily takes control of an enemy mech or machine. Doesn't last long, unless she sits down and continually focuses her attention on hacking.

Smartgun: Essentially an ammo power. Overly complicated targeting programs and kinetic balancers ensure that each shot that hits has it's force transfered to nearby structural weaknesses. In other words, it does increased damage against Armored foes (Such as people wearing heavy armor, or mechs).

Particle Bomb: Not as impressive as it sounds. It's actually more of a chaff grenade, fudging up sensors and signals in the area it explodes. Great for confusing mech targeting systems!

Shield Pack: When even one good hit can pierce your suit, it's a good idea to have a backup plan. This is a secondary shield generator and battery pack to pop up an extra layer of shields for a limited time.

That sounds good Latooni, I would accept those.

My class is: Primal Adept

And well the powers will be up in the OOC. I just gotta tweak some things.

Haven't thought up his abilities yet, but I think I'll be going with something like "Medtech Operative" for my characters class. Definitely a focus on taking down or crippling organic targets, with maybe a couple support abilities for his allies.

Whereas mine would probably be simply "Hacker", since she specializes in taking down shields and mechs.

Sounds good you two.

Now I have to wait on Laughing and his plans for your Commander.

edit-

As well as to where to station everybody.

edit 2-

it appears that we're ready for an OOC if everyone else is ready. I understand take your time with your characters. But there is no real reason why not to start it. So I can get the character sheet going for all of you.

That's fine. I need to know who The Commander is anyway.

This RP will be working in a few ways:

-I will be making a character sheet and working a character

-But unlike the video games I can really delve into personality and character relationship even amongst the crew mates. You never saw Mordin talk to Jacob other than the first time Mordin was recruited. It's assumed they do, how else would Mordin know about Fem shep and Garrus. However, at the same time there was not exploration I think in that venue.

-Here I will PM each character individuality at times to activate their personal quest or even personal information that is slowly revealed into the RP.

-I will also be in direct contact with the commander of the crew sending him missions and coordinates, etc. Dossiers in the beginning so he gets the crew members. Because I do not want to leave people interacting with nothing.

Basically this will be how it works out:

-Everyone can post, I'll just be sending the commander PMs on where he can find you

-When you work out your history with me and where you're located in the world, I'll give you a basis of your mission

----

Oh but...but. I will need one person to be at least with the Commander in the very beginning. That one person works for this mysterious organization that has hired him to find people who have simply vanished into thin air.
