I know that quite a few people expressed interest in my plot ideas. I also noticed some interest in multiple plots. I'm going to pitch this out there that we could possibly do two different threads that have different plots. Just an option I wanted to get out there.
Now to answer questions:
TheRedFear and DigitLNinja: I did not specify which ending in my plot ideas because I was going to wait until I had a group of people assembled. I wanted to have a poll for which ending we wanted to pursue if we didn't create our own variation (say Destruction but the Geth and EDI remain or are salvageable which makes the Quarians survive).
Humbugearthquake: I think an intergalactic war could be interesting, but I don't know if that would necessarily happen considering Shepard got everyone to unite. Granted, the Batarians wouldn't want to align with the new alliance between races, but they are so wiped out I don't see them being a large threat. So it's something I think that could be pursued, but I wouldn't focus on it with this probably.
However....With the "Omega" plot line we could definitely play out a more "chaotic" galactic scene because we have all the merc groups fighting and Aria trying to keep them under control.
DigitLNinja: I don't know about the Shadow Broker and Aria working together as closely as you suggest, but the ideas you came up could be elaborated on further if we were to create an Omega themed game.
When it comes to playable races, I am open to anything within reason. I would like to see a good mesh of races in the game.
The idea that there are "Reaper Cultists" is very fascinating in my mind. I know that the Reapers are destroyed in the "Destroy" ending, but who's to say that their minions were? If we alter the "Destruction" ending to where alternative versions of technology were not effected, this could work. And to be frank, the signal that destroys the Reapers could have been altered/fine tuned to only impact them. They have their own communication system through their "hive mind mentality", so it could have been introduced to them through that.
If I missed anything, I apologize. Just bring it up again and I'll address it.
