What would you do if you were around to see the extinction of your entire race?
Many would answer with, "I'd get up and do something about it! Or at least try!" But how do you kill an enemy that is near impossible to kill? During the years there have been warnings of a sentient race of alien machines known as the Reapers. They were responsible for cleansing all organic life every 50,000 years. The next cycle is here, but nothing has happened yet. Or so everyone thinks.
Commander Shepard spread word of the Reapers to the Council and tried to warn them. But no one would listen. And now...Earth is Ground Zero in the Reaper Invasion.
The Reapers just started coming and that meant war was upon the whole Galaxy. For the Reapers weren't just attacking Earth, they were after every organic being in the entire Galaxy. Earth was simply among the first to be hit.
Quite a bit of people on Earth did manage to escape and flee to space. Those who weren't evacuated, either died by the Reapers..or are still awaiting their death.
Now the only thing that is on everyones mind is, Survival. How can they kill this type of enemy? They needed to know. Commander Shepard was one of the first people they looked to for answers. So now the Commander is being plunged into another war. But the Commander wasn't the only one fighting the Reapers.
There were hundreds of other males and females all willing to give their life for Earth. One Captain, named Captain Kiley. He was stationed on a ship orbiting Earth Space when the Reapers first invaded, luckily the ship he was on and the crew were able to get out of the area. Kiley saw what they did to Earth. He was very scared of this enemy, but he knew they had to do something. They had to, or else the whole Galaxy would be cleansed of all organic life.
While Kiley was sure that other planets were having troubles with the Reapers, he knew the Earth defense system would need their help. He had heard about Commander Shepard thinking about uniting all of the races to help fight. Kiley was sure that that would never work, but it was better than just sitting around doing nothing.
Kiley decided that he and a few other Captains would send out signals to other races asking to send someone they thought would be the best fit to the ship the Captain was on, The Redoubt. Kiley decided that he wanted just to make a small strike team and after talking to his superiors, they told him if he could get the people, then they have things for him to do. If not, Kiley would be stuck on this ship slowly moving along in space. And he didn't want that.
So after a few minutes of staring at an already typed up message, he slowly moved his finger down and sent out the signal requesting the races to deploy an operative they thought would be a good fit. Any other soldiers they wanted to send would be sent to other ships or...directly to Earth. After the message sent Kiley looked at the recipients. He saw: Turian, Krogan, Quarian, Salarian, Drell, almost all of the planets in the Galaxy. He knew the same terminals that got his message would receive thousands of other messages
Hello! I have always been a fan of Mass Effect and now I was wondering if anyone out there would like to do a ME RP? What I was planning on doing was having like in the paragraph earlier..a small strike team of maybe like...4 or 5. But we could have other players possibly.
I wanted this to be styled the same time Commander Shepard is doing the missions from Mass Effect 3. So all squad members with Shepard are unavailable for play. For the team with Kiley, I wanted them to go and do actual missions and take out points and what not and develop our own story. Commander Shepard wasn't the only one fighting the Reapers after all.
All races are available to play as, though I encourage only two(At Max!) of the same race. Wouldn't be very fun having one human and 3 Turians and one Quarian.
Now, if this gets enough interest then I will make the OOC page where you can post apps! If you have any questions or comments then feel free to post them!
