I'm easy :D  I think I'd go for a human male, myself.  Shocking, eh? :)  I think we can both guess what DA would like to play as...

Ack!  0 for 2! :P

Heck naw, but I don't know anything about commando squads. When I play a role, I wanna know as much as possible. I have no idea on ranks, rank structure, tactical structure or combat formations or tactics. I know they are strongly biotics, and are generally small units. So I could assume they operate much like a special forces team, quick hit and run attacks, followed by a series of ambushes to demoralize and lower enemy strength and numbers. I'm kinda picky with details, but usually only with my own roles.

I could do commando easily I guess, never really crossed my mind honestly LOL!

I'm tired, bleh...

Especially if she's cut off from the rest of her team, then you wouldn't have to really worry about such things.

For some reason, I liked Garrus the best out of the support characters.  His whole dilemma with doing what's right and doing what's legal is kind of an interesting one that I find myself dealing with now and then.  And besides, he and Ashley could really have an interesting dynamic going, since he can be a bit of a smart ass at times.

Thats an interesting way to look at it, definitely possible. Or a sole survivor area. PLUS, if we want, we can go Terminus Systems style, since it hasn't been developed at all, except for Omega in the 2nd book, we could easily fictionalize a lot of stuff. It also gives good credit to why a quarian, Alliance Military(Or just Human) and asari commando would come across each other.

ALSO! Yes I love Garrus, especially later in the game if your Paragon. He changes for the better, but I really hope he is in the 2nd game, at least a little bit, just to see how things are going if necessary. But hes cool, I really like him for Insanity difficulty, cause his tech and combat mix make him great for fighting geth, specially mixed with Liara's biotics which can disable or instantly kill harder enemies with shields and Immunity, plus Garrus can disable weapons and shields, but also has some combat efficency.

So a human soldier, an asari commado, and a quarian are in the Terminus Systems to do what?  Research Cerberus activity?  Follow up a lead on geth developments?  Test a new Mako unit that doesn't bounce as much?  (complete with bumper sticker: If the Mako's a rockin'... don't worry, that's normal!)

Well if we wanna avoid the storyline all together, maybe we could base it off something not involving Cerberus(Since, techniqually, Cerberus isn't actively attacking alien races in the 2nd book, except the Migrant Fleet, so they are really only a human issue) maybe we could do something like...slavers? Mercenaries stole something very valuable to the Council before Soverigns attack, an Alliance team was sent, along with a commando squad, but in the aftermath of the attack the teams were kinda back-walled, and then a quarian comes along..to...help/get a copy of the data? :P

Just...throwing out ideas... XD

I'm up for some Rescue the Quarian :D  Kinda reminds me of Basilla Shan in KoToR 1 :D

What forum should we put this in?  Since the aliens are human-ish, do they count as exotic or no?
