Interest Check - Mass Effect 1/2?
« on: February 09, 2010, 03:52:36 PM »
Okay first off, I'm back ;p I've been away for a while, & I've changed a bit since I was away, but that's just a little note for anyone who knew me.. Anyway :
 
I saw an idea about a Mass Effect RP, but the general idea was to have it set around the First Contact, which I don't want, so I started my own. I (kinda obviously) don't want this to be sex-driven (but who says it's forbidden?  ;) ).
 
I was lucky enough to get the last copy of Mass Effect 2 in my local Game store & that gave me the idea to start this up. It's not specific to Mass Effect 1 or 2 - So you don't need to follow the story of any of them, or leave out any characters 'cos they weren't around until 2, etc.
 
So yeah - Pretty much loose rules, I'm just checking if it's worth starting up so if I see enough people are interested (and committed enough to not drop out halfway  :P ), then I'll give you all a basic starting point for the story & all that.
 
BTW sorry if I didn't word any of this right or it's confusing to read, I just get the idea that I didn't type it clearly, probably just me.

Yay  ;D
Yeah I'm looking for at the very least 3 people, but I think I'll start at more than that, depends how popular the idea gets.

What's the storyline? I might join, depending on information supplied.

There's no set storyline, only a starting point, I think I'm gonna have that around the start of Mass Effect 2, but it depends if I get any objection to it =p
 
But from there, who knows where it'll go?

Like I said in the other thread, I was just getting the conversation started. If you've got ideas, I'm all ears. (Eyes?)

Ahh ok, I think I take it too seriously when someone gives an idea or a preference though, FCW & the beginning of ME2 are a big jump so I decided to make my own. & I kinda like the idea of making it  :P

Okay that's 3 people now for sure  ;D 

Edit:
I'm gonna start it now, so I'll make a thread and stick the link in here. But first, can someone tell me if it should go in Non-Adult or not? I mean it wouldn't fit in any of the sex categories, but I don't want to have to filter anything out or leave out any umm inappropriate material.

Shouldn't you discuss the plot in a bit more detail first?

Well I was gonna do that in the thread when I start it ... The basic idea is that it happens basically within the start of ME2 and I guess I should know what characters are going to be in before I set a beginning. I'm Shephard btw  :-)

Yeah, we need a general plot and direction figured out before we do anything else.

I'm writing the thread as we type. Well, as I type, and you recharge your typing powers from the message you just typed.

I'm honestly not interested in a "let's totally wing it!" game, so if that's what you intended, I'll step down.

This is where I am at as well. If you have trouble coming up with a good central plot, you could always ask for our input?

Yeah what's your input? So far all I've got is the setting, I was gonna include the stuff about the collectors but I didn't know if you'd all want that (and I haven't completed the game yet so I'd not be best for that).
 
By the way the thread is up here :

This is my first time back to RP'ing in a long time so point out if I've missed anything out. What do you all want the story to be then? Should we go ahead with the collectors?

Sex is allowed as well, so the game should not be in Non-Adult. Also, if we're covering ME2, do you really think that's wise if you don't want to encounter any spoilers?

It seems like you've made some assumptions about what we would or wouldn't want ahead of time. How about you ask those questions in detail so we can answer them ourselves, so we know where everyone stands?

The plain fact is that I don't have a lot of free brain time due to the demands of work and school, so coming up with plot on the fly isn't going to work for me. In order for me to really be able to participate to the best of my ability, we need to establish a focused starting point with some kind of story arc in mind so I know what sort of character to create and the kind of dreams and goals she should have.

In reference to starting with ME2, especially if you're playing Shepard, the Collectors can and will play a rather large and important part. It's possible to do an alternate universe situation, but that's something we'll need to discuss ahead of time.

Yeah Karma I couldn't decide where to put it - I didn't think it would fit in the other categories, because they seem to revolve around sex. Shouldn't there be a forum for "Mature RP" or something?
 
I'm not too bothered about spoilers really, we're not following the game's story to the word anyway so I won't notice any spoilers if there are.
 
Well the collectors are definetely in then, will we follow the story of colonies disappearing? But without Cerberus's help, we need to launch our own investigation into it?

That would establish then that Shepard wasn't killed and is still Alliance, yeah?

As for the other forums, they're intended to mark the upper limit. If any bondage occurs, you put it in the bondage section, for example, even if sex isn't the focus of the game.

Well, Shephard was revived by Cerberus, and they hoped she would help them, but as soon as she could, she walked away from them, knowing what they're like.
 
I'll move the thread now. (I'll delete it and put it in one of the other categories).

Currently doing my third Mass Effect 2 playthrough on Insanity (Though lost all my ME1 saves so I'll have to at least play it 2 more times to get a good storyline all the way through the series :P)

So yes you can count me interested, I'm a bit confused about what the point is exactly. (I get the general idea but it still feels a bit chaotic to me.) As to characters, it has to be someone you encounter in the game? Or are you free to 'create' one yourself? Maybe use one barely mentioned in the game itself? Reason I ask is everyone bar Shepard has a rather preset character and morals, I don't feel really comfortable imitating.

RandomClown, what do you mean by "What's the point"? The point of the Rp? It's fun  ;D
 
And no, it doesn't have to be characters you encounter in-game. You can make your own, I'm Shephard but I guess that counts as making my own =p
You can use characters from the game aswell but it's not a rule.
