No doubt there have been numerous Mass Effect RPs and RP attempts, especially since the 3rd game came out. Unfortunately, I've never been able to play in one. So, I'm making my own. I am going to assume that people who want to RP this have played all three games, at the least. As far as I'm concerned, all of the other media doesn't matter and does not play into the Mass Effect storyline.
Of course, that doesn't matter, really. Considering that this RP will be placed after the end of Mass Effect 3. Of course, this requires that you either have completed the game, or don't care if I ruin the ending for you. For your sanity, if you have not completed all three of the games and do not want the ending spoiled (or any subsequent possible endings), then do not read any farther. If you have no issue with this, then, please, continue.

The Story Continues
No one knows what happened on the Citadel that fateful day. Only three people were present then, and all three of them died there. The resulting energy burst from the Citadel obliterated it, leaving only fragmented debris to burn up in Earth's upper atmosphere. The energy pulse blanketed the planet and the Reapers fell, one by one, seemingly erased by the surge. Their mutated creatures fell dead beside them. Across the entire galaxy, on every contended world, the entire Reaper force simply died. The galaxy had won. But the cost was greater than they expected.
Among the dead lay the Geth, recently redeemed from their title of heretics and destroyers. They gave their lives - if such things truly lived - to save the galaxy. Alongside the Geth lay the ruined bits of AI's and VI's, and large portions of technology once seen commonly throughout the galaxy. The Mass Effect relays shattered, cutting off access to the rest of galaxy. It took years - centuries - to fully rebuild. But the galaxy had been on its own once before.
Now, nearly 200 years have passed. The first Mass Effect relay linking Earth to the rest of the galaxy has finally been completed. Once more, humans are a part of the galactic community. But while the Asari and Krogan live for centuries, the humans have much shorter lifespans. Many humans now have never seen aliens, save for the holovids in Hollywood and in school. What paths will the humans forge now? What remains of their old allegiances? Do they still have a place on the Council?
And are the Reapers truly gone? One can only hope.

Looking for 3-7 players (besides myself). All species are available. No descendants of Shepard, though. And, yes, I chose destroy the first time I played. This story is based off of how I actually played the games my first time through.
