Saint, I need a catalyst. PM me something weird.
Saint, that info was VERY helpful. Thank you!
Now I just need to figure out what kind of character I want to play. At this point, I think I'm going to stick with human, but there's so many possibilities. Hmm...
Welcome to my world. Right now I'm thinking a Salarian author with a serious case of writer's block, simply because it'd be so easy to relate to (well, the writer's block part).
I think I'll just go smoke and listen to Plastikman. That usually helps.
First suggestion: find a role, and make it the quintessential of that role. For example, a lawyer. Atticus Finch. A killer. Hannibal Lecter.
Then give him feet of clay, and see what happens from there.
Well, clearly he loses the ability to walk.
Great writeup Saint, but if I can make a minor alteration, humanity hasn't known about other galactic civilizations for 150 years, more like 40 by the time of Mass Effect 4.
EDIT: Which if you ask me is entirely too short of a timeframe, I've thought so since ME1.
Hmm...I think I have an idea I'm going to run with. Thanks for the advice! I should hopefully have a CS to you sometime tomorrow!
*goes to ponder her CS*
Should be able to send you a CS tomorrow at some point
In terms of when we might get the ball rolling, I was looking at mid-next week so y'all don't lose your weekend off D Also gives me time to write all the introductions So no big, big hurry.
Well, mine is up, and Red
I think that puts our start date precisely when I get my first final. So hey, my reply will take a week, here's a head's up.
Ergh. Okay, I'll try and sort something out for you...
Otherwise, I do rather like TSG and Sirak's little "mirror image" characters in the two threads. It brought home to me something I realised only when playing hardcore Renegade on ME 2 recently: all the Paragon moments have so much more significance -- echoes, different foci, you name it -- if you've played Renegade as well. It really is a case of "if you play it differently, your enjoyment of your first run is even more enhanced." Man, the writers on that thing were devoted.
That sounds like about the time I have all my finals. Give me a moment to reply
Hey you guys a quick note re asari characters - they grow up really slowly compared to humans. remember that Liara is basically the equivalent of an early-20s human at age 104 (in great own words, she's considered "little more than a child").

I'm home for the holidays that week, so if I can tear myself away from my new guitar, works fine
Red and Blue . . . Aleena is game again! My second character around here who I do reprise under a different GM . . . when do we actually start?
Next week, I shall find, if it ever happens, intereacting with identical characts in very different galaxies to be most interesting.
I think ten years change . . . a lot. So they won´t be that identical, will they? I am looking forward to my first try in dual character play with the same character, too.
I've been writing out Thane-esque flashback sequences in the first person of my character to tide myself over until this comes out, it's like I'm waiting for the actual release of a computer game
Quick update: Blue Thread is almost done, since I'm working dedicated on one before I do the other. Probably I'll put Blue out soon as it's done on the off chance that people heading for finals can get a quick post or two in -- maybe tonight, tomorrow. Red Thread should be out on or before Wednesday.
I can see it now:
Laser dot trembles on raised skin. Golden eyes defiant in the scope. Calibrations are incomplete.
Blue update is up. Have fun, you guys!
Red Threaders: hang in there. Like I said, Wednesday latest!
eeeee it liiiiivesssss
There will be no Extended Cut.
