Re: [OOC] Mass Effect: On the Edge

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Bromander Shepard on Thu Feb 09, 2012 7:59 am

Awww yeah, this thing looks right up my alley. I'd love to join! I'm assuming all characters should more than likely be human since its a Cerberus Operation? I've already got a character taking shape in my head just got another quick question though. Would ya mind terribly if he's heavily inspired by gears of war? Figured the Onyx Guard armor from 3 looks like something fresh outta Mass Effect so I was gunna use that for my character. Might have another reference or two from the game. I'm not gunna like straight up be Marcus Fenix or anything but just figured I'd ask before going through the trouble of making the app.
I should go.

That's perfectly fine by me. Although I'm not limiting characters to being all human. Villayn and his two lieutenants are turians after all. Send in your character sheet when you're ready.

We are. Just be sure to read the rules and submit a character profile if you're interested. I'll discuss all new applications with my team of veteran writers.

I'm currently working on gaining access to my abilities to send PM's, so if you're waiting on me to respond to something, bear in mind that it's because my account is still new enough to be pin-pointed for additional screening. Everyone has to do their part to fight terrorism, right?

Also, I'll be sure to hook everyone that is interested in joining up with the original publications-so-far of On the Edge... once the po-po realizes I'm not even from the Middle East... and that I actually kill terrorists, rather than sleep with them.

Boy, talk about racial profiling there, right?

Re: [OOC] Mass Effect: On the Edge

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby The Ghost Writer on Tue Mar 27, 2012 2:41 pm

The Introduction tab now includes a link to the entire original publications of Mass Effect: On the Edge. I've temporarily dubbed this file "First Season", though I honestly cannot say where a supposed "season" would end if there was ever a "first". The file is saved as a docx and can be opened using Microsoft Word or most conventional word processors. The entire document consists of 354 pages (single-spaced, 11pt Calibri font) and 204,054 words. Not to brag or anything, but a standard novel is at least 30,000 words, and Stephen King's "standard" is 45,000 words. I believe its safe to say that my authors and I have blown those standards out of the water.

Now, as a warning, the "posts" have not been organized in a manner that reveals the authors of the posts. The entire document is a continuous story, using only simple gray line breaks to show either momentary lapses in time, or definitive transitions between original posts. There are no fancy chapter titles, or page numbers. In the future, I might upload a more "pretty" document for your reading pleasure. For now... that's too much work.

Hello. I've always liked Mass Effect, and I am interested in trying this RP if you are accepting characters still. My Forum RP experience is quite low though, so I'll try my best to live up to standards.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby The Afterman on Sat Sep 15, 2012 3:25 pm

Hi there, The Afterman here, obviously, big fan of Mass Effect.

I've been regarding this roleplay for a few days and, well, I'd like to join. I just need to know one little thing before I start: are all characters submitted required to be part of Cerberus? That's really the only thing I haven't deciphered (although I have a tendency to overlook things.)

Other than that, I'll get to reading over everything that has happened so far, and I'll submit a character for inspection (that is, if you are still accepting at this point in time.)

That's all for now. I'll start up my incredibly long read.

"But are you gonna kill her off?"
"It's not your decision. I love the character, she stays!"
"Yeah, well the only thing love's done is put you in this position; I say kill her off!"
"Yeah, but you say a lot of things -and how's that work? You're a bicycle."

I apologize to those that posted in this thread several months ago requesting to join. Apparently, I don't receive e-mail notifications whenever someone posts in these OOC threads.

If you're still interested in joining, please send me a personal PM; I get e-mail notifications for those and will be able to respond in a more timely manner. Please note that, if accepted, you will not be able to start contributing to the IC story until "season 3" begins (after the current battle on Ontarom).

Thank you for your patience.

I already sent a character profile but I would love to join. I'm new to this website and I still can't figure out the PM system because it doesn't seem to let me send the PMs. I'm a huge mass effect fan and would absolutely love this.

Hi Reaper,

Thanks for the application, but you'll have to hold off for a bit until we complete Season 2 (after the current battle taking place). It should only be one or two more posts.

As far as the character you submitted: our main concern is the severe psychological state of your krogan. It doesn't offer any room for him to be apart of Oracle or, especially, Cerberus. If, perhaps, you could make him to be a little more stable (as if krogan are ever stable), then he might be able to be apart of Oracle when Season 3 starts. We already have one krogan on a Cerberus ship, and considering, canonically, the organization isn't too fond of aliens, another krogan would be one too many.

I will decline the application for now with these notes copied into the reason so you may refine the character for re-submission.

I will work on the Krogan but I sent a brand new character who might be easier to incorporate into the story.

I would like to join this Rp but seeing as most of the character roster is owned by a small amount of players I see that its focused on a small group layout.
