Soshi, Karen would, as would any of the other tech experts. Since it's not an AI core, and just another piece of machinery to maintain, it would be accessible. I'd imagine that it would need authorization codes for anything that would effect the ship's systems, however. So yeah, Karin can go party in there if she'd like. My second playthrough with my femshep, I took Dr. Michelle aboard the Normandy instead of Dr. Chakwas and I felt friggin' terrible for it. >_> Damn my need to see all the content.
IT'S KIWI TIME! DUN DUN DUUUUN.
First off, for the most part this CS is fantastically done, and I only have a few small comments to make!
First off, your picture isn't working. I think something went horrifically wrong there. You may want to fix that. Also, a small paragraph describing his appearance for the stuff the picture doesn't show would be awesome.
A side note that's important is since this RP takes place several years before Mass Effect, there are no thermal clips. Everything runs off the ME style cool down and heat management, so the bits about thermal clips don't apply.
The history is pretty awesome, and at first I confused Poshni's 8 years in the marines as a part of Kezna's history, so I was really thinking something was off, but alas, I just fail at reading comprehension. A couple things I'd like clarification on are if you picked Rosenkov Materials because of the role they're playing in the role play or if that was a just a random company you picked? I'd kind of like to know why he was betrayed by Rosenkov, and if he'd have insider knowledge of the company that would be useful for the Broker agents which would come into effect during the game. We could PM each other details and what not about that.
The other was it seems like Kezna was just picked up by the Shadow Broker, so did you intend to have him as a rookie agent? It might me an idea to take a couple years or so off of his Omega days and add them to the Shadow Broker employment, since this mission is basically set aside for the top agents the Shadow Broker has at his disposal. It might be hard to trust a new guy with something so sensitive, y'know?
Other than that, fantastic stuff, I look forward to having you in the game Kiwi! Gold stars, all around. Just clarify or fix the points I mentioned and you're good to go!
Alrighty, it's Hikari time!
Appearance is fine, I have no problem with 3D renders, especially ones that are close enough to photographs. The armour and what not is fine, too. I'm personally not fond of combat ready people showing a lot of skin, like their midriff, but to each their own, right? Same thing I mentioned for Kiwi, if you could do a small paragraph about appearance that the picture doesn't necessarily show, that would be great. Stuff like height, weight, disposition, stuff like that.
If you could space out your paragraphs more, that would be fantastic. It's hard to keep track of where I am when it's all connected. The back story is great, I always was fond of the children being turned into perfect weapon themes, and this is no different! My only point is similar to Kiwi's about the Shadow Broker bit, I'd kind of like if she was employed with the Broker for some time before this RP for experience and trust issues, especially with how important the mission is. As well, I think the Broker would prefer to offer Jinsoku work and what not instead of going to her father to send her, it's one of those things where loyalties can be questioned and I'd like for her to be a bit more than a minion. The only part about your gear I'm iffy on is the arc grenades, since I don't think these were even invented at this point by the quarians, kind of like the arc pistol was made sometime after ME2.
Other than that, all looks great! I'll add both of you guys to the approved section, just fix what I suggested and feel free to post when you're ready. Your characters should arrive on Intrepid Station drugged like Ryloc was since it's location is supposed to be uber top secret and nobody (other than maybe the pilots) know if it's a space station, a planetary base, or a ship. Basically, retrieval agents put your character under, they wake up in a medical room for a check up and are sent on their duties aboard the station. In this case, your characters will be in the same group as the current Broker agent characters. This is their first team exercise.
