"And so the Reapers, along with all other synthetic life were destroyed. The galaxy was left to rebuild itself, and try and forget the terrible memories of the past. But a new dawn is rising, a new dawn that will bring forth some of the biggest challenges that the galaxy as ever known. And toface it, it'll take a new team of elite heroes to do it.
But can you handle the heat?"
This roleplay takes place after the events of ME3 (which concluded with a 'destroy' ending.) A new threat is on the horizon though, even with the Reapers gone, the galazy has yet to realize that its biggest foe has always been staring them right in the face: organic life. A group simply known as "Vanguard" have been causing trouble since everything was rebuilt. The council has refused to take any action at them however, and instead wish to keep worrying about any minor planets and colonies that were effected during the war. So Vanguard has been left to roam the galaxy as they see fit. But a group of new allies who are all (in some way) running for their lives/safety, have banded together. Stealing a warship, and heading off into the stars. But after an attack by an unknown ship, left them resorting to crashing on an undiscovered world, they soon find out that this planet is one of the few bases of Vanguard. Vanguard knows they're here now (after discovering their abandoned ship) and are hunting for them. But this team of unlikely heroes will have to find out what it is that Vanguard is after, fight their way to get off of this world, and pray that they get out off all this alive.
But this is no trival task...
4-5 aliens/humans are being chased down. (For whatever reason is up to you.) They manage to hack in, and steal a warship from the Citadel, and go off into space. (The Mass Effect Relays have since been fixed.) However during their travels they were attacked by a ship (of unknown origins) and to secure their safety must crash-land on a "new" world. This world has been inhabited by Vanguard and serves as one of their bases. Whilst patroling Vanguard discovered their abandoned ship, and are looking for whoever owns it, to kill them before they can leave this planet. Our characters will not only have to try and escape, but will eventually be sucked into Vanguard's mission, and discover that there's a lot more to this than meets the eye.
Vanguard is a private organization featuring members from all species. They have three bases throughout the galaxy (all in undisclosed locations.) And their main goal is simple; re-create synthetic life. They've taken some of the Reaper technology and started to manifest it with some of their own plans. They plan to make a race that is brutal and aggressive to enemies, but serves their masters fully. Not only this, but all members of Vanguard plan to become part synthetic. (Think of Seran during the end of ME1) Doing this, they will "change" the galaxy forever and finish what the Reapers were planning to do.
