Mass Effect : A Galaxy in Ruins

Mass Effect : A Galaxy in Ruins


The Reapers have arrived. They darken the sky of every wolrd conquered, and those yet unconquered simply sit still, waiting for the inevitable.

496 readers have visited Mass Effect : A Galaxy in Ruins since Koleu created it.

The Reapers have invaded and already took billions of lives, in a few months. The war against them is not a war about winning or losing. It's about survival. Hope seems all but lost. Even tough the Crucible is being built, it's clearly an act of desperation. They don't know how the energy will disperse and in what form. What good is a weapon if it backfires on your head?

The Reapers are a force never seen before. They don't need supply lines, they have no need for slaves, resources, and industiral complexes. They make their own ground troops out of the dead, turning them into abominations. Only hope remains for the soldiers still alive.

Most soldiers fight based on this hope. This hope alone keeps then sustained, fighting for a cause maybe they don't believe. Some believe the Reapers can't be beaten, while others refuse to accept defeat. Some fight for vengeance, other for the ones they love, and others simply because it's everything they ever learned and know to do.

Their job is simple: hold the line while the Crucible is built, and hope that it works. Otherwise, the future of all galactic civilization will be forever lost, to the Reapers. Again.

Well then, first things first. The character sheet:

Class (can be a classic ME class or something new):
Special Talent:
Love interest (or opinion of love):

You can have up to 3 characters at max.

No killing another player's characters, theya re the only ones with this kind of authority. Unless they grant you permission, don't do anything with them.

If you want to use another playes character on your post, make sure to ask for permission first. This way you two (or more) can coordinate better the events of the posts, making for a more fluid story.

For a roleplaying factor I'm assuming that Shepard has cured the genophage, and allied the geth and the quarians after Rannoch. This way anyone can create any character they wish without limitations. The story as well, begins after Rannoch.

As this is the bloodiest and most gruesome war on galactic history, I expect deaths to occur in this RP. So here's a hint: Keep one of your character slots reserved for your main character, the one you want to survive until the end. The other two, use it for secondary character that will die during the story. When you kill a character, you can create another one in it's place. It would be extremely unrealistic for all characters to survive, so lets only let a minority survive, ok?

And finally don't be an ass. Let's work together to make this RP as fun as possible

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.


Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!

Mobs can be automated spawns, like rats and bats, or full-on NPCs complete with conversation menus. Use them to enhance your player experience!

Since no one is going to post any other characters, I'll start the RP. Whenever you want claw, you can post as well.

Re: Mass Effect : A Galaxy in Ruins

I am waiting a bit to see if they will post their characters. If they take to long, like another day, I'll create mine.
