PostSubject: Expanded Beginnings   2014-04-24, 23:24

Okay, standard FG rules apply in this RP, meaning you type something up (such as a character attacking a grunt or another person's character, for further info on general rules consult The Rules thread) and the character's/grunt's owner types a response. These are general rules and thus there will be no dice rolls as I don't want to have to bother Fate every time characters interact with anyone, be it another player character or an NPC grunt.


This RP starts a couple of months prior to the start of ME1. As the RP progresses it WILL be influenced by the events of the trilogy and if we make it to an ME3 arc we WILL be "fixing" the endings. Note that this is based on ME lore and canon but the name should be a tip off in regards to what one can expect to find here. We will be making custom stuff based off things hinted at or otherwise stipulated in the lore such as independent factions that are not located in the Terminus, such as Human factions (not counting Cerberus since they are canon) that are not part of the Systems Alliance. This also extends to weapons and other equipment that could possibly exist in ME, either because of lore, physics (seriously, why is it everyone is throwing around pellets at only MACH 1!? Disregard, Nazamroth's research [see the Debate thread] has provided evidence ME weapons accelerate projectiles to Mach 5), or a combination thereof. Character bios are encouraged but not required. My own starting character's bio is as follows:


Name: Calton’Dothras (“Cal” to his friends and family, few know this); doesn’t give his last name readily or often

Age: 22 (by Human standards)

Gender: Male

Race: Quarian

Likes: Technology, especially computers and weapons; working on his own

Dislikes: People who abuse their authority; idiots; Turians; idiotic Turians; the idiots that are keeping the Migrant Fleet under their thumbs

Bio: Calton was born to Quarian exiles who settled in a cluster of independent Human colonies. His parents assimilated into the culture of the Human colonies and gave him a first name that would better help him acclimate to being around non-Quarians. Despite being born to exiles, he possesses the type of technological skill that is associated with Quarians, especially in regards to electronics and weapon maintenance and modification. As he grew and matured he found that he couldn’t stand still and despised living in any one place for too long a time. When he reached the age of eighteen he took money he had earned from various jobs and set out to be a freelance adventurer and mercenary, much to the displeasure and concern of his friends and family. Despite this, he has made a life for himself.
    He cannot tolerate stupidity in any form. This view has grown to such an extent that he views the majority of the galaxy’s power players to be governed by, if not filled with, idiots. This is largely due to him actually seeing that the galactic races are stagnated by their reliance on Prothean technology and their unwillingness to try and improve upon it. He often describes the mentality of the major powers in regards to technological advancement as “Waah, waah! It’s too hard to make even minor improvements!!”. As such, he often makes many modifications to his own gear that defy standard weapon construction, especially in regards to weapons taking at most 1.5 seconds to unfold and activate. His views on that are best summed up as “Another idiotic design choice. In 1.5 seconds a lone soldier can surprise, out flank, and kill an entire fire team. What sort of idiot thought that was a good idea?”
    He has a working grasp of Quarian history and culture, which has lead to noted conflict with both his parents, friends, and with himself. On one hand, he despises the Turians for being the Citadel Council’s “attack turkeys” as he puts it as they forced the Quarians off a world over which the Council had no authority, thus denying them any sort of stability. As such, he also distrusts Asari and Salarians. He is much more comfortable around Humans than any other group for clear reasons. On the other hand, he admits that the Quarians have done things with which he cannot morally agree but he thinks that the wrongs the Citadel races have dealt to his species largely overshadow what the Quarians have done, with the exception being the attempted extermination of the Geth. However, he often cites how the Citadel denied the Quarians any sort of aid after their homeworld was lost, leading to rants about how they never asked for military assistance, only help, meaning the Citadel Council could have provided food and medical supplies but in their callousness ignored the Quarians entirely. He also despises the Migrant Fleet Conclave and Admiralty as he believes that they’ll only lead his people to extinction. His views regarding the Migrant Fleet are most likely horribly skewed in some aspects given that he is the child of exiles.
    As can be expected of one raised predominantly around Humans he has acquired many of their mannerisms. Further, unlike most Quarians his age he does find himself with free time. As such when he is not using it to ensure his equipment is in perfect order he often reads. Usually he reads Human works dating to from the “Romantic” era of literature as it is called by Humans to Human 21st century literature. Further, he is an avid gamer and currently holds the top of the StarCraft V leader board.

Equipment: Calton wears a more heavily armored environmental suit with stronger than average kinetic barriers. Further, his weapons are heavily modified and do not unfold and activate. Rather than are magnetized to his back like most weapons but they are always active. He just keeps the mechanical and electronic safeties on so as to avoid an unfortunate discharge. He also modified them to fire projectiles at a slightly faster velocity so that they have better armor piercing qualities even without ammunition mods/enhancements. He is noted for using thermal clips, which are gaining in popularity amongst individual mercenaries and small groups of mercenaries despite their cost compared to traditional heat sinks. Finally, as his weapons do not unfold he keeps a pistol in a hip holster and a rifle and shotgun magnetized to his back for most situations.




Note: Before anyone starts to say anything about that "StarCraft V" bit or the gaming bit in general it's A) character flavor and background and B) a joke. We had to wait so long to get the first part of the SCII Trilogy I imagine it will take even longer for new SC games to be released once the SCII Trilogy is over, that is all.

OOC: That makes sense for your character and his merc group but for mine...I'm not even sure if Calton's been in Citadel space, let alone the Terminus sector. Plus you have to be either crazy, desperate, or know what you're doing to go to the Omega relay and I can't think of a reason Calton would be there. Hm....

OOC: Alright then. That works. I kind of doubt he'd have his own ship (I mean, even personal ships that house only one or two people have got to be incredibly expensive, right?) since he's only been a merc for four years. Sure, he's made a life for himself but like I said, a personal ship has to to cost...what? A few billion credits?
