Mass Effect RP

Postby peachBox » April 20th, 2010, 11:49 am

Hi, so, I'm basically new here. I've tried in the past to join RPs, but found it pretty difficult to join when an RP is 300 replies into its story.

So I figured, hey, Mass Effect has a wealth of lore and, it being an RPG, this being an RP board and you all being people who are fond of RPing, some of you may have played it and might be interested in trying to start a Mass Effect RP.

Figured I'd see if there was any interest before I went for it.

Thoughts? Advice?

Thanks in advance :]

Wow welcome back peach! :) I love Mass Effect, played both games so I'd definitely wanna join this if you get it started.

I'd say one thing though.. maybe set it the rp in the 2 year space between ME1 and ME2 so that there's no "I want to be Shepard!" issue :)

I think this would be awesome. Yeah I agree with Dante to make this about what happens between 1 and 2 since they are making a 3 unless y'all want to make up what happens after 2.

Consider me signed up! I'm going to use the same character I posted up on the mass effect forums on fanfiction.net simply cuz he was only born today (bless him!) and he's different to what I would normally play.

Name:Rasen Mannovai Kyotu Han Anderi Friga (homeworld first)

Age: 12

Species: Salarian

Gender: Male

Sexual Preference: None (would be straight if he had a sex drive)

Alignment: Just shy of a true paragon

Background/History: Grew up in a middle class background and quickly took interest in firearms and engineering. Friga found some of the best instructors around to teach him the art of warfare and his uncle who was also very into anything mechanical taught him engineering skills. He worked on the docks for a while maintaining star ship engines and earned a good reputation for fixing them up better than they were when they were bought new. Friga was always happy with his work until he hit 11 and realised it just wasn't exciting enough anymore so he joined the military as a rookie, where he learned battle tactics. He had no interest in rising through the ranks even though his proficiency reports showed great promise for STG reconnaissance work and he stayed in the military as an lt. He has been in a number of small scale infiltration missions and he's done his share of killing but he has a strict policy of only eliminating those who pose a threat to his or his team mates safety. He has no plans to quit the military in the foreseeable future although lately he's been growing tired of seeing team mates die around him, and he wishes there was something he could do to prevent the currently very high death rate of the salarian military.

Personality: Very compassionate but he is not stupid and he knows sometimes a bullet can save lives just as well as words can. He would prefer it if he didn't have to kill quite so many people during his service but he deems it necessary as they were trying to kill his team. He has a very strong sense of loyalty to his team and considers every one of them worth dying for. If you make a friend of Friga then you've made a friend for life, though he is picky about who he lets in too close. He is generally a very happy and extroverted person though he does have his withdrawn moments, and during these moments it might not look like there's a lot going on but these are the times when his brain is working overtime. Because of this he often goes very quiet when he is trying to make an important decision or when something is bothering him. Friga's nature is such that he can't let something happen that he deems wrong, and he can't allow a friend in need to be ignored.

Quirks: He is a typical salarian with his fast speech and twitchy demeanour. He also has a strange habit of popping bones that seems to annoy just about everyone around him and he sometimes plays on this in moments of boredom to get a rise out of people just for the hell of it. His favourite phrases are 'hell yeah', 'bitch'n', and 'yeah roy!'.

Powers/Equipment: Friga is first and foremost a 'tecchie' when it comes to fighting and he considers his omnitool his greatest friend in a firefight. This is in quite the literal sense seeing as his favourite tech attack is his trusty incinerate ability. He's also passable at hacking synthetic enemies though his real forte is in fixing machinery not hacking electronics. He has no biotics to speak of but he thinks he gets by well enough without them. He favours heavy pistols for firearms though he has training in the use of sniper rifles owing to the salarian military needing infiltrators instead of cannon fodder. He has basic first aid training and can patch himself and his team up in the field if he has to but this is not really his specialty. He wears light armour in leaf green colour.

Weaknesses:Friga sometimes gets a little too emotionally attached to team members or innocents caught in the crossfire which can make him act irrationally. This has resulted in the death of a team member in the past which Friga feels extremely guilty for and carries the guilt with him wherever he goes. He is also weak in the general toughness department and he can be quite easily taken out with a well placed punch which necessitates him using his brain in a fight more than anything. Friga is still a little naive sometimes as he believes he can save everyone and everyone around him agrees he needs to grow out of this or he may get another person killed as a result.

Motivations/Goals:Friga's motivation lies in saving lives as he is a very compassionate soul. Owing to his close friendship with team mates he simply can't leave them to fend for themselves so if anyone of them is in danger this motivates him to fight harder than ever for them. His goal is to one day find a way to reduce overall death rates in the military by 70%, possibly by building some kind of mech that can do the fighting for them.

Appearance: Friga is a pale red salarian with white on his face, horns and hands. He is around 5 foot 6 and slim like any salarian. He has a tattoo of a white fox running from the side of his neck to his collarbone and another tribal tattoo on his face with the markings of his home planet as is usual for salarians. His home planet markings are in some ways similar to a vertical mass relay in shape. He has a few scars earned from his service in the military, the largest of which is a large bullet graze wound on the side of his neck, he got the fox tattoo to cover this up a bit and also because he believed it must have been fox's cunning that made him move out of the way just in time for the sniper bullet not to have been fatal.

Grievances: Overly jar headed types and people who try to act bad-ass but are only out to save themselves. Likewise anyone selfish in any way and those that exploit people weaker than themselves. Generally greedy people and racist people. Politics.

Thankyou for the welcome! I'm not normally that meticulous, or at least I don't think so anyway, but with a character sheet I like it to be as detailed as possible. It helps cuz I normally make them up on the spot so It fleshes out the character for me too. :p
