Mass Effect: Rising (Interest Check)
« on: April 26, 2012, 01:02:41 AM »
Mass Effect: Rising takes place during the same time as Mass Effect 2, revealing the 'other side' of Cerberus as an ex-agent works with the alliance to bring down his former employer.

The main character, David Franklin is an ex-Cerberus agent in his mid 40's. Since he's former Cerberus the team will be relatively human heavy.

I need AT LEAST 1 human female and potential love interest for David, any other characters are also welcome.

I think this could be interesting, :P

And do David's squad have to be ex CErb? Or just anything human?

The crew can pretty much be any humans. He'll start off with the alliance but probably pick up some mercs or other types of characters who aren't alliance along the way.

I'm kind of hoping his Love Interest would be like the daughter of an admiral or something and be completely naive to the dark side of the battle between Cerberus and the Alliance. Starting out not having a clue what she got herself into but slowly learning and proving she's not just some damsel in distress he needs to save.

The mission will start out with David getting put on trial and sent to the alliance's newest space prison, he'll end up having to fight the escaped convicts who hijacked the facility, inspiring the alliance to give him a chance to help them. So if that gives any ideas of types of characters who could join him. (Maybe some other convicts who were wrongfully arrested decide to help him stop the REAL bad guys, or maybe a reporter doing a peice on the facility gets caught in the action, or surviving guards or staff members as well)  Just suggestions.

I have a list above for what I'm looking for.

along with Alliance soldiers after they recruit David into the Alliance.

I also need someone to fill the female love interest role.

Mostly humans as the team is Ex-Cerberus and still harbors a slight bais against aliens.

Info on the Team leader.

Name: David Franklin
Race: Human
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Class: Vanguard
Class Specialization: None
Appearance: His hair is actually more brown with grey near the sideburns but the game wouldn't allow for 2-tone hair.
History: David was a member of the guard team stationed on the Dragon's Fang Cerberus research base. At first loyal to the cause until their experiments began growing more and more extreme. David watched as his friends were subjected to experiment after experiment until many of them died or lost their sanity. Even David himself was subjected to some of Cerberus' tests and he still bears the psychological scars. Recently David was captured by the Alliance Navy and is on trial for his actions with Cerberus but chances are a deal will be struck for his intel on his former employers. David only cares about tracking down his old friends....or what's left of them.
Biotic Powers: Throw, Pull, Biotic Charge, Shockwave
Weaponry: Standard Issue Cerberus Assault Rifle and Pistol

Looking forward to seeing it.

AngelicBlade I think will be joining us after they get back, they're in my other RP and mentioned going out of town.

We still need a love interest role as well.

I'm making a female character (because the other ones I have at the moment are male), so if you think she would be a good match, I have no problem with that.

Here she is, let me know if the history works well or if it needs tweaking to fit with the RP's storyline.

Name: Rin Winters
Race: Human
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Class: Adept
Class Specialization: None
Appearance:
History: Rin was a marine in the Alliance that was supposed to be a part of the expedition to Akuze years ago. At the last minute, she was deployed elsewhere, which spared her the fate of her fellow marines when the thresher maw attacked and killed about fifty of her comrades (because Shepard's story is different for every player, we'll leave his/her involvement in the mission as a rumor or something). Feeling survivor's guilt, she went to great lengths to uncover the truth of what happened on the planet.

Finally, she found the whereabouts of a survivor, Corporal Toombs, who had been abducted from the site by an obscure organization which she later found to be Cerberus. She helped Toombs escape the lab, and learned from him the truth of the incident and Cerberus' involvement. Unfortunately, everything was being kept as confidential and she couldn't actively pursue the dangerous organization. Shortly thereafter, she began following Admiral Kahoku's investigation on Cerberus, and found that the organization was already tracking him. She tried to contact him directly, but it was too late. The Admiral was found dead not long afterwards of "natural causes" but Rin knew it had to be Cerberus.

Then, a few weeks ago, she learned of the location of one of Cerberus' former agents, one David Franlkin. She read his file and figured he could have some useful information. So in order to get a meeting with him, she disguised herself as a lawyer and went to visit Mr. Franklin. That day would change the course of her investigation, as it was the same day that the riot broke out on the prison.

Biotic Powers: Throw, Pull, Shockwave, Stasis, Barrier (If we're only picking 4, then forget Barrier)
Weaponry: M-6 Carniflex Pistol

As for Biotic power rules we're going with Class based. Like for example Vanguards I dont think can use Stasis, and a few other Adept Exclusives.

I should have also just put "powers" because this is where like Techs and Soldiers who dont have biotics would list abilities like "overload" and Concussive shot, ect. in their profiles.

I like your bio, welcome to the RP, we'll likely start when AngelicBlade submits something, see if anyone else wants to join before then.

As for Shepard we're using the "War Hero" Background (My Villain on my other RP took the "Ruthless Background). I think if you play Mass Effect 2 and 3 directly without importing it establishes what is technically canon.

Oh ok, so that makes Toombs the only survivor of the Akuze tragedy.

Now, I'm willing to play Rin as a love interest if you'd like. Otherwise, she'll just be a companion character and that's fine as well. Up to you.

Either way, as a LI or friend, I think it'll be an interesting relationship because of her mistrust towards Cerberus and his previous service with the group :-)

I'd be game to play a Merc-type that is often hired to do "brute work" for Cerebus. Delivered the goods, didn't ask questions, got reliable employment.

I'd lean toward soldier, vangaurd or infiltraitor.

I have a Mass Effect character already made that I could use, if there's any room for a biotic lesbian, drug addicted pirate? xD Being a lesbian... I don't see her really being a love interest... but hey, any squad could use a self-styled pirate queen, right? :D

Oh, and to clarify, she's a vanguard too :x I could technically have her be a sentinel if that would help, but her usual strategy would still be to charge in and kill things in melee xD

Though Cerberus wont be doing any hiring, this is after David defects and the team is going AGAINST Cerberus.

Sounds interesting. We'd have to figure out how she fits in with the rest of the characters though.

My bad. I meant to imply that my merc worked for cerebus, but in a Zaheed like fashion. though That'd change when he saw an experiment similar to what was happening to david or jack.

Sounds interesting, I would normally rather play any other race than human in a mass effect RP but I suppose playing human isn't too bad if I get to play in the universe. I will be going for Sentinel and I'm thinking he was a prisoner who has an issue with cerberus as they were the ones who got him arrested in the first place. I'm thinking alien sympathizer who tried to hack into cerberus databases and got his ass kicked for his trouble, that sound okay just from a premise standpoint?

Great ideas, post up your character bios and we will probably get this RP on the road.

Eventually in the final chapters the RP will have more alien involvement and link up to my other Mass Effect RP, because this IS technically part 2 of 3 in my series.

Do you want a bio up from me? I could think up a reason or two for Vanna to be involved in the story. Could be as simple as Cerberus screwing her over in the past, or something more interesting. I'm open to linking her history with anyone else's if anyone's character could have a past with a London-born, Hong-Kong raised space pirate.
