Mass Effect RP (Ceta)
« on: March 11, 2012, 09:11:42 PM »
After playing through Mass Effect 3 I,m in the mood to start up a Mass Effect RP.

Update: Due to member dropouts, the team currently needs new members.
Needed:
2 Human males
1 Human female
1 Male Turian
Anything else is also welcome.

Part 1 will take place about a year before the events of Mass Effect, it will center around an alliance crew and a SPECTRE going after an alliance Spec-op member turned terrorist.
The RP will start with the crews being separate but eventually uniting as the situation becomes critical.
Since part of the RP will be team building (recruiting squad members), we,ll need to figure out how to work the RP until those squad members join the crew.

If part 1 goes well part 2 will take place during the events of Mass Effect 3. Basically being the story about how the characters from part 1 fit into the final war. I plan to use the same team but if anyone new wants to join or if old members leave I can work the story around.

Currently the crews consist of (I,ll update as people join)
Alliance:
Raven - me
AVA - RedEve

SPECTRE:
Raya Vos - Me
Rapax - PeacethatPowerbrings
Argos Ghul - Me
Zali - Vaulera

Suzie Lao's Team:
Suzie Lao - eBadger
Alexis - WendySlaveGirl
Ray Huang - TreyWalker

Other forces:
Tanka Varn - me
Xen Tolkien - me

I,ll count you in. Do you want to be in the human crew or the SPECTRE crew? They all converge near the end but about half the RP the humans and aliens have different goals.

Now we wait for more members.

I'm in, if you'll have me.  I played a mass effect RP on another site and had a fun character I'd like to re-try here: basically an underground news investigator.  Think Michael Moore re-imagined as a pistol-wielding anarchist slash rock star. 

Original character was female, which I'm inclined to do again, although I may go with a guy for any RP smuttiness. 

Edit: also, free form or system based?

Quote
Suzie Lao is a counterculture icon, famous throughout the galaxy for her illegal broadcasts detailing the excesses, hypocrisy and tyranny of the major governments.  A Champion of the People, she’s sexy, fun, a pistol-wielding Robin Hood of information broking – half rock star glam and half folk hero violence.  As much as she pisses off big business and government, she enthralls everyone else.  She’s not above burglary, shootouts or seduction to get a story, and her news station – the Underground – hacks its way into normal feeds and brings anarchy, chaos and free love to every man, woman and Asari that ever felt sick of the powers keeping them down.  The revolution will be televised!

Welcome to the RP Cold Heritage and eBadger.  BTW, good job on the background eBadger.

It's free form.

BTW, multiple characters are allowed if anyone likes to play two to three characters.

@ eBadger: So would Suzie join the alliance crew or SPECTRE crew?

Well, it doesnt have to be one of the ones I listed, I can easily use ground soldiers or individual fighter pilots or whatever else you can think of.

Thank ya!  Like I said, an old toon and one I've had a LOT of fun with.  Was actually introduced as the commentator NPC for an underground hoverbike race. 

She's human female, so I'll go with whichever one will put up with her.  She's good for propaganda, but her anti-establishment rhetoric is probably a bit over the top for a staid military operation.

Yeah, well it goes from a military operation to going outside the law to chase down the terrorist pretty fast, especially when they find out who he's involved with (Which I'll save to reveal during the RP, dont want to spoil it)

As a human I'll have her go with the alliance, since unless someone else decides on a different route, my idea is that the SPECTRE isnt overly fond of humans until they save his life a few times, his ship is mostly aliens.

Yeah, though I was thinking she could still be with Cerberus at the start of the RP until the Alliance team recovers her. The Recovery mission would be an interesting plot point in the story. That is, if you dont mind.

That's fine.

Will she be activated already or still in a dormant state when they find her?

Whichever you prefer. Though I'd suggest her being already active or it might get boring waiting for the retrieval group. Though will she start out in her body or will she be kind of like EDI, a program until she gets the body sometime during her escape?

But for how long I dont know. Not completely sure what kind of character you intend her to be. (I mean, she'd have to have been active a while to be knowledgable about human behavior, while if she was just activated she'd probably be very robotic and mostly logical, not really grasping the concept of emotion yet, so that all depends on what you have in mind for her)

BTW, we probably need at least 8 people for this RP, I can fill in as needed. We're going to need some Aliens and Male characters, the SPECTRE squad is surprisingly short-handed. Though I'm not at all opposed to Girl/Girl action.....That was a joke.

Strangely the Turians were pretty popular in the other Mass Effect RPs I joined, haven't seen one yet here, lol.

Here's my current Bios:
Name: Commander Raven Hart
Race: Human
Class: Vanguard
Class Specialization: None
Appearance: In Civilian Clothes
In Armor
History: Raven's father was a highly respected soldier in the Alliance fleet, Raven always looked up to her father and loved him despite him rarely spending time with the family. Then one day her father's ship was destroyed. Unfortunately as a military operation most of the details surrounding his death were kept secret. Raven joined the NCIS to investigate her father's death but her superiors had other plans, forcing Raven's search on the backburner behind her more 'important' missions.
Biotic Powers: Throw, Pull, Shockwave
Weaponry: Sokolov IX Shotgun, Raikou VIII Pistol, M-451 Firestorm
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Preferred Position: Neither

Name: Tanka Varn
Race: Krogan
Class: Krogan Mercenary
Appearance: He Wears This Armor though it's more rusted and a darker gunmetal grey, the Shoulders and Helmet copper in coloration:
His skin is light brown with paler tan flesh under his chin and probably going down his stomach to under his tail. His scales and natural armor plating is a dark olive green. The left side of his face (and presumably most of his body) is badly burned and scarred and unknown to many, he had his left arm replaced with a cybernetic one, Syntheskin covering the mechanical skeleton to appear like a normal arm.
History: Varn had the misfortune of being born a runt. At only 5 feet full grown he is the butt of many jokes among his collegues. When he was younger he was disowned by his father who felt he'd never ammount to anything. Out on his own Varn learned his own way of surviving, stowing away on an unfortunate cargo vessel, Varn found his way to the world of bounty hunting. At first being overlooked as a fighter, Varn learned how to develop weapons and make customizations to both guns and eventually ships. His work was highly sought after on the black market, but his popularity had a price, eventually the hunters turned their backs on him, threatening to sell him out to the authorities if he didnt bend to their wishes. One such blackmailer, a Turian made the mistake of underestimating the Krogan and found himself dead. Fortunately for Varn, this Turian had stolen a small stealth fighter from the Turian military. After making it offworld Varn began modifications to the ship, this included turning the two-seater into a single seated craft, he also painted it to better blend with the asteroids in space, but left 2 markings on each side of the ship to intimidate targets, these markings were painted to look like Turian and Salarian blood and written in old Krogan dialect to say "The Fallen Shall Rise Again". Varn continued to dodge bounty hunters while conducting his own hunts, eventually having many run-ins with Turian authorities, particulary a rookie agent named Xen Tolkien. One fateful encounter ended in disaster when Xen blew his cover, leading their target to sacrifice one of their own ships to escape. The bombed ship landed on top of Varn, the engine crushing his arm and leaving him horribly burned, Varn also claims the young Turian "owes him a lung" for the incident. Using his connections Varn eventually replaced his damaged arm and continues his bounty hunting opperations. Varn has a fondness for human rock music which he obtains from contacts who pirated it from Earth.
Biotic Powers: None
Weaponry: The Crushinator (A custom bladed shotgun that the axe handle is the barrel of the gun and the gun's handle is part of the axe blade)
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Preferred Position: Krogan: Submissive, Other Species: Dominant

Name: Vladimir Arkadyevich Derzhavin
Species: Human
Sex: Male
Affiliation: Systems Alliance Navy Marines, Spec Ops
Rank: 2nd Lieutenant, ICT N3 qualification
Class: Soldier

History: Born in 2157, Vladimir's father died during the First Contact war. As such, he never knew him. Growing up in Moscow was pleasant, and Vladimir's childhood was not terribly exceptional. He played sports, did reasonably well in school, dated girls, had awkward sexual encounters until he gained reasonable proficiency and confidence, made friends, lost friends, got into fights, and in general grew up. As soon as he graduated, Vladimir enlisted for service. He signed up for the marines, the same branch of service his father had served and died in. His mother was conflicted; she did not want to lose him too, but in the end she gave her blessing. Vladimir performed very well during basic training, and was stationed on Elysium. Garrison duty offered little in the way of stimulation or trial, but Vladimir did his duty.

There, he developed a relationship with a local girl about his age. She was the daughter of the owners of a cafe. Her name was Vesepia Jones. She was sweet, and kind. They dated, went to dances, but things never got serious. Both of them knew they were not life long mates, and as soon as Vladimir was posted somewhere else he would go with fond memories. But they were happy. And they were in love, even if it was not the kind that burned brightly or endured for decades. Vladimir was on a day leave pass with her when the Skylian Blitz happened; he tried to escort her to safety, but she was gunned down by a squad of batarians. She died in his arms. Vladimir managed to neutralize one of them, take his weapon, and then eliminate the rest of the enemy squad. Although he attempted to make his way back to base, the distance was too great for him to rendez-vous with the Alliance forces stationed there; he resolved to make as much of a nuisance of himself as he could to the invaders. Gravely wounded during the Blitz, Vladimir nevertheless managed to neutralize several shuttles by seizing and employing batarian heavy weapons. His final action before relief forces arrived was to disable two batarian shuttles before they could take off with human civilians intended to be sold as slaves.

His actions earned him a commendation and promotion. He attended Vesepia's funeral, with her parents' blessing. It was a closed casket affair, and very somber. Vesepia's parents said nothing, but there was some resentment that he was alive and their daughter was dead. That resentment was something that Vladimir shared with them, and he felt tremendous guilt that he had not been able to save Vesepia. Some physical rehabilitation and recovery followed, but he was soon cleared for active duty and returned to duty.

Vladimir went on to be part of the forces that engaged in the Theshaca Raids. Facing fierce fighting in several combat deployments, Vladimir gained a reputation in his squad first as someone who was tough as nails - he took hits that would put another man down for the count and kept on fighting. He performed admirably, taking charge of his squad after his CO fell to heavy point defenses and their senior non-com experienced a failure in morale, and lead a daring flanking attack against an entrenched enemy position that had three squads of marines hopelessly pinned down and ripe for out-maneuvering by inbound batarians. They seized the guns mostly intact, and an engineer with one of the now freed squads was able to help them redeploy the heavy guns to destroy the inbound batarians - eight full squads were cut to pieces with what had been their own defenses. Vladimir also managed to save the life of a marine officer, Captain Edward Raines, taking a rocket meant for the Captain by using his body as a shield. The young marine was stabilized and medi-evaced, but by that time that combat zone was mostly won - all that remained was to mop up a handful of stragglers.

The debriefing that Vladimir faced was made up of several senior officers. It deviated from previous debriefings. The questions were hard, and the attending officers tried to turn his words around to make it seem as though he had done something wrong. The young soldier held his ground and defended his actions, standing by all of the decisions he had made. Later, Vladimir learned that the examination was so thorough was because Captain Raines had recommended Vladimir as a candidate for the ICT program. The board apparently found Vladimir a suitable candidate, and the formal offer was made. The young marine accepted, and was sent for N1 training. The brutal twenty hours a day training almost broke him, and almost killed him, but Vladimir managed to pass. It took everything he had. He almost did not make it until one of the instructors let it slip - ostensibly by accident - that his father had been a candidate for the program and would have begun training had he survived the First Contact War. That kernel of knowledge allowed Vladimir to dig down deep and find the last reserves he needed to succeed. It was a proud day when he completed the first course of training.

After a week's leave to recover - spent visiting his mother, who had since remarried, and meeting her new husband - Vladimir went on to complete the N2 and N3 training courses. He would put that training to good use, assigned as part of a Spec Ops team employed on various missions the brass needed done. As before, he acquitted himself well in combat, displaying the individual initiative so prized by the Alliance military machine without getting cocky and disobeying orders. During his tour, he faced batarians, salarians, krogan, asari, humans, vorcha, and even the odd elcor. In one of those missions, he earned a commendation for carrying a wounded squad member twelve kilometers while under heavy enemy fire and while wounded to an extraction LZ when environmental conditions made shuttle retrieval anywhere else impossible. Another, where his squad was tasked with what should have been a simple intel retrieval meeting with an STG squad, saw Vladimir convince both his CO and the salarians to band together to take out a group of mercs that were going to massacre a group of quarian civilians. Although outnumbered 3 to 1, the superior tactics, training, and equipment of the Alliance Spec Ops soldiers and the STG soldiers allowed them achieve 98% destruction of enemy forces and matériel. In light of the near total destruction of the enemy forces, deniability was plausible and complete.

At this point, Vladimir was scheduled to take the N4 course, but was tapped instead to join an Alliance crew that would team with a SPECTRE to hunt down an Alliance Spec Op member turned terrorist. Although the recruitment for this mission was ostensibly voluntary, there was no way that Vladimir was going to turn it down. Taking down one of his own gone bad was a matter of pride.

Personality: Vladimir's chief strength as a soldier his ability to shut down emotionally and get things done. He can fight on through pain and injuries that would put another soldier out of the fight. It is something he cultivated and learned how to do, seizing every ounce of potential he has in him to make it happen. Because of the Skylian Blitz, Vladimir is a true believer in what he is doing, and it is in no small part why he has become the driven soldier he has become. Although it might seem like it, however, Vladimir is not ruthless or callous. He will not send men to die, and he will not fall in line without questioning what he sees as a bad call - although he really hates to do it when he can see himself there is no other way. Whenever it comes down to it, Vladimir will do whatever he can to get saddled with the roughest, most brutal part of the job. He can take it, and he knows it. Whenever someone needs to draw fire, Vladimir is the one to go do it. He is dedicated to his squadmates, although this can be as much a liability as an asset - it is very difficult to get Vladimir to leave someone behind, even if it means that the rest of the squad can escape.

Having a command of his own is not something that Vladimir wants. He is a capable leader, and he earns the respect of those he serves with by demonstrating competence and never asking a soldier to do something he would not do himself. Many think he is unable to make the hard decisions, and to commit to what it really takes to get the job done.

Out of combat, Vladimir's pleasant enough. He enjoys classical music, stuff with lots of strings. He does not gamble, after a particularly disastrous hustling he suffered that cost him two months' pay to an engineer. Vladimir learned he just does not have a poker face. While he can drink anyone else under the table, Vladimir does not really enjoy becoming intoxicated - after the Blitz, he just cannot shake the little nagging voice in the back of his head that says he needs to be ready, at all times, to fight. He will enjoy the odd round, of course - it is just excess that he avoids. He especially enjoys eating, and the cooks of ships he serves on quickly come to recognize him and his wheedling ways. Some kept a few extra sandwiches ready - others kept their heavy ladles ready to fend off a bold, impromptu pantry liberation.

The guilt he feels over Vesepia's death still haunts Vladimir. He cannot shake it. He still blames himself for it - if he had been faster, more aware, done this of that differently . . . he thinks he could have saved her. In his mind, he has played out the scenario hundreds of times and come with almost as many ways he could have acted differently and saved her life. In some ways, every time Vladimir does something to save someone, he is trying to save Vesepia. He still has nightmares about it, but they are increasingly infrequent - months apart, even. Although Vladimir likes to think he is not scared to love again or make strong friendships, this may not genuinely be the case. Thus far, however, he has never had occasion to test this belief.

Although not generally xenophobic, Vladimir has - what he believes is a reasonable - mistrust of batarians. On an intellectual level, he knows they are not all mercs and slavers, but he has never personally encountered a batarian that was not one or the other.

Appearance: Vladimir is a tall man. His body responded exceptionally well to the standard Marsgene gene therapy all Alliance soldiers receive upon enlistment, and he has undergone elective gene therapies to further enhance his physique. His muscle mass is very great, and Vladimir's dedication to maintaining fighting fitness shows as well in a bulky, powerful body that moves with a flexibility and smoothness that comes from training for speed and stretching as much as for sheer brute strength (although Vladimir will be the first to admit he goes for the latter probably more than he should). He has glossy black hair that curls slightly if grown out enough, but Vladimir maintains a military high and tight cut. He has pale blue eyes. A strong chin and jawline give his face a very masculine appearance.

Vladimir has several scars on his body as a result of combat. None are especially prominent or disfiguring. He has Vesepia's name tattooed on the inside of his left wrist.

An Alliance uniform is the typical mode of dress for Vladimir. He has a few pieces of civilian clothing, although they are now ill-fitting and several years out of style - it would be very gauche to wear them in public.

Powers: Adrenaline Rush, Fortification, Carnage, Armour-Piercing Ammunition, Cryo Ammunition, Fitness, Arms Master

Load Out: M-92 Mantis I Sniper Rifle; M-6 Carnifex II Pistol; M-12 Locust I Submachine Gun; M-99 Sabre V Assault Rifle; AT-12 Raider IV Shotgun; Heavy Armour (similar in appearance to N7 Defender Armour)

Name: Rapax (Geth)
Race: Geth
Class: Engineer
Appearance:
Very much a unique Geth platform, Rapax is a mobile platform, and is optimized for maximum survivability. Rapax is built from the best possible materials, and wears external armor. Able to conceal its true nature by adapting its armor to mimic a Quarian suit, and sealing its head with a Quarian face-mask.
History: Deployed from beyond the Perseus Veil to gather information. Rapax is a mobile platform for the Geth. With considerably more runtimes than a normal mobile platform, Rapax was designed to modify itself for maximum survivability in largely hostile space. Has moved from planet to planet pursuing ever more useful information, driven by the consensus of its runtimes that its mission should last as long as feasibly possible, in order to provide the maximum benefit for the Geth.

I was a bit curious about that myself; although the quarians can be sexy, the practicality is iffy.  I had a bit of inspiration tho - a sort of rubberized gimp perhaps, a latex bitch suit with sleeves in the orifices, maybe even a permanent blindfold on?   It would be a particularly cruel fate for a conquered foe.  And few are likely to complain about turning a scavenging quarian into chattel.

I thought about it too, and I could rationalize it best if a particularly rich individual were in possession of a Quarian sex slave. With a lot of credits they could afford to maintain a Quarian and get the antibiotics, a sterile room, and other measures one would employ - assuming, of course, one cared for the Quarian's wellbeing - to ensure safest possible intercourse.

Well, I had an idea for a backstory but I was leaving it open in case someone else claimed the character.

But if nobody else plays her then I'll use the following:
Since Quarians have strict rules regarding population control, due to the fact their Migrant Fleet has limited space, only 2 Children are allowed per family. Since Kera'Hann Nar Bari's parents ignored the law they would have to send her away. Unfortunately her foster parents fell in into debt with a crime boss and he took her knowing others would pay good money for a Quarian slave. Growing up away from the Flotilla allowed her immune system to get stronger. (This uses the theory that a person who avoids germs is more likely to get sick when they come into contact with germs, as opposed to someone constantly exposed to germs building up more of an immunity). She still wears an environmental suit out in public because although stronger, her immunity is still weak compared to other species and places like Omega would be a death sentence. Though being exposed during sexual encounters is less dangerous for her. Though her master does keep plenty of antibiotics around and makes sure clients take special precautions, the cost of keeping her alive and healthy is worth it because all the extra money he makes from being one of the few sex slavers who owns a Quarian.

Also, glad to see your character PeacethatPowerbrings, though at the moment it looks like Rapax is unfortunately short of company aboard the SPECTRE crew until we get more members. I may make adjustments to the story to better fit the unity of the crews intead of having the two separate ones.

And welcome Vaulera, currently we need aliens but dont let it discourage you if you want to be alliance.

Really, Rapax can work on either crew, so if we don't end up running a Spectre crew, they can switch.

Was just cruising the youtubes, and a kernel of information about the Tali Romance seemed relevant. But it's a spoiler.

ME3 Tali Romance Spoiler
Tali spends the night with Shepard again, but without her suit on. She mentions her system adapted to him, and that she won't have adverse reactions to him anymore. This makes it seem like a Quarian could get used to being out of suit around someone.

I already completed the campaign, but thanks for the heads up, that seems plausible if that is in the game.  I would be willing to play something like that if it matters, I don't have much of a preference concerning my role, just as long as I get one.
