      Please don't PM me questions   05/18/2017

      This is a very important thing that I need to express to the members of the Initiative a little more clearly so you understand why I'm posting this message as I get a lot of PMs and random support requests regarding things on this site and it is extremely overwhelming to get these PMs.   There is a lot of stuff on the site that I manage solo. From the spotlight challenges, to the challenges (when I'm able to get to them), to archiving items, to approving items etc. We have a lot of cool features and trust me when I say I'm not saying we need to reduce because I feel everything that we have has it's place and purpose however I do, do  it all alone. (Shamelessly plugs staff wanted stuff 😉 )   So with that explained I have to explain why I'm asking that members stop PMing me questions. First off, we provide many different places that probably already answer your questions including our FAQ and our Ask Us fourm. We also provide forum avenues for you to contact the staff (in general instead of a single staff member) via our forums through the "Staff Contact Center" where you can either contact the staff publicly or privately. While it is your preference which one you put out there these avenues are more quick for you to get a response.   When you PM me (first off you'll get an auto reply with this information reiterated in it) but it's very likely I will dismiss it and get to it later. PMs are not my priority as they are used for private messages between myself and a member and not something site related which will be explained below as to how my priorities work for managing as I go:   Priorities listed in order from top to bottom regarding sites: Site/Server Down Site/server slowness Hosting issues (any of the initiative hostees having a problem) Payment issues Reported content Staff Contact Center Contact (and of the forums there) Chat Approvals Site checks (looking through forums) Roll outs of any kid that I have created (challenges, content etc) PMs Distant Fantasies   This isn't to say that your PM won't get answered however all of those other things take precedence over a PM and as you can see I'll answer you in the Staff Contact Center before I even check my PMs to see what you need.

A wee Mass Effect RP! (Minor Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I noticed there's quite a few fans of Mass Effect here! Are there any people who might be interested in doing a wee little Mass Effect RP on The Initiative? I've had a plot for it in mind that I've wanted to try forever. In bullet points, here's the basics:

  • Takes place between ME1 and 2, after Shepherd has died.
  • Human colonies begin going missing.
  • One colony or part of a colony (Elysium, perhaps?) decides that they're not going to be next!
  • Cue the residents of all different backgrounds and skills trying to learn what's going on and prepare for it. (That'd be our characters, yo.)
  • Eventual Collector attack!

I'll let this sit until Friday and see if anyone else is interested.

 

Until then, it might be a good idea to have a little talk about what characters we'd like to play!

 

I don't have any characters for Mass Effect lined up as I've never done a Mass Effect RP before, but it would probably be a good idea if at least one of our characters was familiar with another. In order for things to work out as planned we'll need at least one character who can teach some skills, but it might do well to have two- perhaps a biotic and someone more weapon-oriented? I wouldn't mind playing one of them, if someone else wanted to pick up the other?

that sounds good!

 

I'm thinking I might make a character with some weapon experience. She'll be a former soldier who retired after her leg was badly damaged, and because the place where she was stationed didn't have the best medical equipment they didn't manage to repair the damage completely, and she now walks with a bad limp. Not sure what she's currently doing though, if she has a job or is living of her savings or whatever.

 

If anyone wants to have some sort of connection to my character I'm up for it ^^

I'm interested also.  I don't have any concrete ideas for a character yet (perhaps an Asari that's gone out to wander the universe and ended up there somehow?) but I'd be down for it. Though before I get into deciding what even race to play, are there any we aren't allowed to play (aside from Collector/Reaper and Protheon for obvious reasons) ?

Sure, I'll join in.

 

An immediate character idea that comes to mind is a batarian merchant who becomes stranded on this colony world. A gunrunner! He'll be very stingy with his supplies and try to shake the colonists down if they hope to arm themselves with his wares. He's even got some exotic stuff that might, gasp, be effective against the Collectors! 

 

(Or they might do nothing. Who really knows?) 

 

His value to the colony would of course be his preexisting wares but also his prowess with using said weaponry and his ability to tinker. He would be the go-to guy for mods. The racial tension between him and everyone else would be a conflict point for both him and the others.

I loved the ME games and would totally join something like this, as long as the app wasn't too daunting. I get writer's block with long apps.

This isn't for a forum, it's an RP taking place here on The Initiative. Regardless, I don't do applications.

I place no limits on this sort of thing! Just know that if you want to play a yahg or something, people will likely react with the appropriate amount of terror and want to kill it. xD

 

@Syn, love the idea! Batarians are the bomb diggity.

 

@Freya - I'd love to have a history with your character!

I'm sorry for the delay in this, fellas! Last few weeks of school have been super busy for me, but I'll get on replying to this today. In the future, I'll be writing a post at least once a week to move things along.
