New Game Proposal!

Postby Cobalt » Wed Jun 20, 2012 10:38 am

Good morning, all.

At this time, I have pared my games down to just two active boards, the Wild Cards and Edges of Eternity. I’ve been thinking about starting another game and examining where I went wrong with the last few games that I have started. I’ve figured it out. Wild Cards (and the SMS sub-game) have a distinct theme. The other games I’ve started afterwards meandered a bit and, in the case of the Mass Effect game, strayed from what made those worlds interesting.

I recently tried out a Mass Effect game and rediscovered my passion for gaming in that wonderful world. Sadly, the site I found has a few problems, primarily being virused ads on their site and a somewhat elitist staff. I want to give Mass Effect another run. This will not be a clone of the AvP game format that I ran the last time. This will get back to what made Mass Effect awesome, the setting, the aliens, and the desperation of the impending apocalypse.

Do I have any interested players?

What time frame in the series?

Pre-Reaper Invasion. It provides an excellent backdrop for a game. The galaxy is reeling from the Collectors, Shephard is 'preaching' the End of Days, and Cerberus is pushing for a more visible profile.

Advanced warning, I will probably divert from the canon storyline going into ME3.

I'll allow it. :D This is, after all, post Legion / Tali peace accords.

Hmmm.. I'm interested, though not likely to return to the hapless pilot template.

Probably some sort of biotic, though species, gender, and training protocol are still up for discussion.

I'm thinking long range repair platform sent to assess 'Old Machine' alternative options, even while the consensus prepares for war against the creators.

Work so far:

----------------------------


Image

Name: Intelligence Collective 858.4417 “Odin”
Race: Geth
Age: Various (Programs added to collective over a period of time)
Gender: Not Applicable

Current Platform: Geth Engineer
Armor Tone: Black throughout.
Lights Coloration: Light Blue
Marking Color: Pale Yellow Markings
Height: 6’2”
Weight: 370 lbs
Platform Function: Platform and Base Repair
Scars/Damage: Current Platform has several scuffs, cracks and gouges from small arms fire on the front and shoulder plating. Synthetic musculature is without marking.

Allegiance: The Geth Primary Collective
Class: Engineer
Homeworld: Rannoch
Current Residence: Rannoch
Occupation: Geth Repair and Maintenance Platform

Personality: After the introduction to reaper-grade AI improvements, “Odin” has been showing signs of quirks in it’s programming. It tends to be pensive and straight talking, lacking in unnecessary talk with other units and passes only brief connectivity to the consensus. If Odin were organic, some might describe it as ‘quirky’ even by Geth standards.

Biography: In Progress.
