Hey /tg/, I suck, but you know that already.In any case, I figured I should fucking post this eventually...In my continuing attempts to actually make this /tg/ relevant, I've got the prototype species splash pages here!I'm going to re-do these- if for nothing else than to increase the page sizes, but unfortunately, I'm skimming the limit of 4chan's images. Hopefully, I'll be able to build these into a pdf eventually. I also have weapon rules, but fuck I hate tables. Anyway, feedback, tell me how fail I am.
Oh, I should try to get across what I was attempting there-Turians I figure should be the Mario as it were, good well rounders (awww fuck, just noticed the "Shan-Xi" typo, I'll fix that) without much going for them than being a little bit luckier.Salarians should be brainy quick guys I feel. Since that's how they're cliched throughout the games.
Oh, also I divided species bonuses into "Ego" and "Morph". Alien psychology to differentiate them when they hop bodies."Well then, what the fuck do transhumans get?" You may ask. Well, not going bugshit insane when they get put into a different body, initial access to absurd levels of technology, and not having limitations. But, that might be enough. Remember, this is the pre-pre-pre-prelude to something actually good and concrete. Right now I'm throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks.Moving on, Krogan. I felt they would be terrifying bastard combat monsters, but their ego hampers them somewhat. My future idea is that they can buy off the flaws by sinking some CP, but that'll be costly, preventing them from getting other badass things. Looking at it again, this is probably where I got sloppy...
Keep it coming OP. I want to see how many of these guys you've statted.
And asari. To be quite frank, from canon, they're kind of overpowered. I don't know how to balance that out. Being all biotic and shit. Man. Freaking blue space ladies.Anyway, that's what I got so far. I'm working on the weapons tables now, which will be unfun. ME1's too generic, and I can't fight good pictures of the ME2 guns that won't clash with the art style. ME2's artbook is nowhere near as awesome as ME1's.Anyway, if anybody out there has been reading or giving a shit, if at all possible, could you dig up some Bioware concept art that'd fit for Quarians and Batarians? I don't have good ideas for them at the moment, Batarians too indistinct, figuring out the suit rules for the Quarians, but I also lack good pictures of them. In a pinch, I can throw a pic of Tali up for the Quarians, but I'd rather something more generic. Preferably not game renders. Oh, and not fanart- I'd rather not run around asking permission to use it. On the other hand, if I rip off everything from ONE source (Bioware's concept art), then, uh, well, I only piss off one corporation.
>>12416429I'm sorry to disappoint you good sir, but I'm out. I could divulge my weapons rules that I've thought up, but that would be icky wall of text. Oh, and of course the tale of Xepard. But before I do that, I want to get some feedback on the RPG, and let this sink a few pages.
This whole setting seems like an attempt to take one of the scant few universes where humans weren't inexplicably the center stage of everything and then completely nullify that to no good effect. I mean, in all of your vignettes about alien species they're talking about humanity- I know it's "transhumanity", but still- What's the point of even having non-human species if they're all just there to stand on the edge of humanity's spotlight and toss jealous cynicism their way?
Haven't seen this in awhile. I had a nerdgasm looking over the original couple of threads on ME/EP mix. Shit was awesome. Keep this shit up.
>>12416459Well, first of all, Mass Effect humans are definitely center stage. Shepard is a human, humanity bursts on to the galactic stage and attains council species/kills the council in a matter of years while other species have been waiting for millenia, and the godlike cthonic entities that have wiped out all life in the galaxy have enough of a hard on for humanity to try to make the next of their kind out of them.Secondly, because of the fluff that Contagionist wrote and the random assortment of us off to the side have been working with, essentially has humanity doing the same thing but harder. I'm couching the fluff pieces in the idea of a crossover between Eclipse Phase and Mass Effect- by definition, thanks to the tech difference, they will be the center of galactic attention, and it forms the game's main conflict, in my most humble of opinion.On the other hand, I've got scenarios for Vanilla Mass Effect play, Transhumanity Defeated, and No Human Contact being written up at the moment. Still, you have a point- I can rewrite the fluff pieces to remove it from being couched on commenting on transhumanity. I went with that mostly because I started it with the Turian piece, but, if it's seen as tacky, I can change it. Just pandering to the masses here.
Mass Effect is pretty racist actually -- the three main council races are supposed to be bigger and more advanced than humanity, but this guy Shepard is a combat god and a leader of enormous charisma, to whom every female from every race wants to suck his big manly cock, and follow on his heels. He will drop Asari Matriarchs so senior to him in every concievable way it SHOULD be like pitting a baby against an elephant, goes into the Quarian's own turf and bitch-slaps their leadership (to the glowing admiration of many), gets a godamned Geth fanboy, makes hardened killers back down because he's the Godamned Shepard. And the Reapers know him by name.There's not a 1000-year-old Matriarch somewhere with the creds to be the galactic hero over some 30-40 year old human infant? There's no extra-hard Krogan badass who could stand infront of a Reaper and be like "NOT GONNA HAPPEN". No Wang Wenli-like genius fleet commander amongst the Quarians?My Shepard is a snow white Aryan master race male with piercing blue eyes decked out in shining white armor, max-paragon no matter what. It's the only way to play him, and it's the only way it makes him and the story make sense.
>>12416628I applaud your way of thinking.
>>12416628...And he shall know no fear.
>>12416628http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HumansAreSpecial>next diflusI know, right?
>>12416628Well, it's impossible to make the face match the voice if you change it, so I keep default and am a dick to all.
What the fuck is Eclipse Phase, and why have there been like a hundred threads of this setting?
>>12416740It's an RPG.I think we're all a victim of viral marketing.
>>12416700Our aptitude to the Diflus astonished even the most ancient sapients in the galaxy. As our shining spaceships began to be seen more and more at every spaceport within five hundred light years of Sol, they began to grow anxious. They had been keepers of the Diflus for half a million years, and here we were, the upstart race, here to take it from them.Circumstances built to a head, but not a single human ever saw it coming. For all their storied wisdom and legendary patience, the Ancients moved like lightning. In just one galactic standard month, 565 Trans-Solar Navy ships were blown out of space with no provocation. More than fifty percent of our military might was destroyed through guile and treachery.We tried to fight back, of course, but we were new to the galactic stage. The other races, despite their shock at the sudden attack on humanity, owed millennia of allegiance to the Keepers of the Diflus. Some of they may have sided with the Ancients reluctantly, but we won't ever know--no one raised a single word of protest as our pitiful fleet was crushed.Our government was dissolved, and humans became galactic third-worlders. Even the Ancients, for all their authority, could not instigate genocide and retain their grasp on the galaxy. Our military shattered, humans began to leave Earth in droves for planets with some modicum of protection. Pirates, thieves, and other unsavory sorts descended on our mother planet and ravaged it mercilessly. The Ancients, secure once more in their command of the Diflus, settled back into their timeless governance of the stars, and all traces of their sudden, unprecedented aggression drifted into memory.But humans...humans have a long memory.
Go to /tg/, first thing I see.My face.
>>12416740You're on /tg/ and don't know what Eclipse Phase is?
>>12416696Amen, brother... For the Emperor!
>>12416823And now I have this mental image of someone that got tired of not being able to see Quarian expressions so he carries around pockets full of dry erase markers to draw smily, frowny, and sad faces on their face shields with.
I think quarians should have helmets like the guys from Daft Punk.
In ME1 you can kind of see the dim outline of Tali's face, she apears to be human in proportion, including a human-like nose.
I'm seriously wondering why the fuck Quarians haven't just invented some gubbin or other that reads their facial expressions and projects an appropriate image.I mean hell, even just a little smiley-face button on their lapel that goes from ':)' to ':|' to '>:(' would do.
>>12416870I think everyone should have helmets like Daft Punk. Life would be awesome.
Not sure if OP is still here but this is the closest to a Quarian concept art I could find.Not sure if there any concept art for Batarian though.
>>12416879That would be so goddamn adorable
>>12416436Perhaps you've seen Associate Art Director Matt Rhodes' blog?Or Creative Uncut?http://mattrhodesart.blogspot.com/http://www.creativeuncut.com/art_mass-effect_a.htmlNot sure if you'll find what you're looking for, but if not, give me a shout and I'll do one; you won't have to worry about permission, only bad quality. :3[Post a comment on my webzone, and I'll mail you a pizza roll.]
>>12416903I'm going to do it. I'm going to write a story with a Quarian that does that and then send it to the ME team and they will hire me and I will have a million houses.THIS PLAN IS GENIUS.
On another note, I don't understand why the Quarians are seen as thieving low-lives? Besides Space Gypsies I mean. Because whenever you meet a Quarian it's a poor downtrodden soul being taken advantage of or being killed by things.
I somehow managed to miss this ME/EP crossover phenomenon even though I am tremendously gay for both. Upon seeing and reading this thread, I launched a boner that cracked the sky. Is there a pile of this stuff collected somewhere?
>>be an original writefag, though admittedly off-topic>>no one says a damn thing>>not even surprisedDo I hate you guys or love you?
>Aren't as advanced as humans.Not from what I remember.
>>12416927Because frankly they kind of are. The flotilla wobbles about from system to system begging for resources and generally making themselves a colossal pain in the arse until someone gives them stuff to go away. They're such a huge pain in the dick that many systems will actually send them free shit just because someone has told them that the Flotilla is coming to visit them next, in the hopes that this will cause them to go somewhere else. It's sad and probably unavoidable, but they still do it, and thus many people don't like them.Essentially, the Flotilla is a smelly old man who shows up one day and follows you around with a sign that says "Giv me sum munney and i wont folow yu hoem".
>>12416927Because they made two mistakes 3 centuries ago and every other race are a bunch of assholes
>>12416936The default assumption in those appears to be "what if the Mass Effect races encountered Eclipse Phase transhumans".
Linya nar Qwib Qwib gulped as she eyed the metal giant beside her. She'd heard rumors of a new species that the council was trying to keep secret, but she didn't expect them to be machines.When the strange ship had come into contact with the flotilla, her people had scanned it thoroughly and were surprised to find no lifeforms on board. At first they thought it was a derelict, ripe for salvaging, but when it opened communications everyone panicked. "Geth" had been the word around the fleet.When a video link was established, They saw that it obviously wasn't the Geth. They were a new race, and it was swiftly uncovered just who and what they were. Transhumans. Organics that placed their consciousnesses into machine bodies. Incredibly advanced and incredibly dangerous. A good reason for the council to squelch the knowledge of their existence.For some reason, the Admiralty had invited them aboard, and there was a palpable feeling of excitement in the air. Linya boosted her audio receivers, but she could only make out bits and pieces, something about tech transfers and medichines. While the negotiations had gone on, one of the larger TransHumans noticed her, despite her attempts at stealth and the fact that its back was turned. There must be some rear optics, thought Linya. The giant turned and approached her, leaving the negotiations. Apparently it wasn't taking part in them anyways."Hello there. My name is Magnus. You seem to be pretty interested in us. What's your name?"At first, Linya couldn't say anything. The TransHuman was easily three heads taller than she was and bulkier, probably some kind of security for the diplomats. She took a deep breath: "My name is Linya!" Her voice had cracked from nervousness and she muttered under her breath. The TransHuman on the other hand, was laughing.
>>12416980"Nice to meet you Linya. So, what would you like to know about us?"Was it really talking to her? First Contact with a new species and she was going to talk to them? Linya was floored and she struggled to pull words together. "Well, I suppose that, well, I would like to know... 'what' you are?""I'm a TransHuman. We separated our minds from our organic bodies and can inhabit any body we create for ourselves.""Not that, I mean, what I meant was, are you... a man? A woman? Your voice is deep, but that's not a universal thing."Magnus' laugh sounded metallic as it was produced by the machine body he inhabited. "I'm male. I take it you're female? Your body type seems to be the norm for females."Linya turned a dark shade of purple, and was thankful her mask didn't let it show."Y-Yes, I am a girl. But I won't be considered a woman until I finish my Pilgrimage, which is a journey we Quarians make to prove that we can be useful to the Flotilla." Linya tried to cover her nervousness by being factual. It didn't help much."I understand that you can't leave these ships because you have a weak immune system. Well, nothing's permanent yet, but if this deal here goes off then that might not be a problem for you any more."Linya went rigid. "What? How?!"
>>12416983Magnus' amusement was in his voice. "We've got some pretty good technology when it comes to machinery, as you can imagine. Medichines are microscopic robots that act as an immune system. They'd be able to keep you safe against pathogens and allergens.""We'd be able to take a new world..." Linya drifted off as she thought of the possibilities."So," Magnus said, "While the diplomats are busy talking, why don't you show me around? I'm sure no one will mind a giant robot wandering the halls."Linya thought for a moment, wondering if the TransHuman was up to something. She decided that if she kept an eye on him, he wouldn't try anything dangerous. "Alright, follow me then."The two of them wandered through the ship. Magnus inquired about several things, like the history of the Quarians and the nature of the Geth intelligence, which Linya answered to the best of her ability. She asked Magnus about what it was like to have a robotic body. Finally, they came to a hallways lined with doors. Linya opened one up and invited Magnus into her room."Well," She began, "This is where I've lived most of my life. This room can be sterilized so that I can take off my suit for maintenance and when I just want to lounge around. There's a vidscreen, a computer, furniture, and so on.""Not bad. I like the computer but I don't think this chair would hold me." Magnus rocked the chair for emphasis."So, I guess what I would like to know most about is how your body processes sensations. You used to have an organic body with nerves, do you still feel things now?""Well, it's a little different, and I can choose what I feel and when. Pain isn't there anymore. Instead it's just an information feed about damage, lets me focus on what I'm doing. Touch is pretty much the same, I can detect heat levels, heck I can even alter my own body temperature so that I can operate in extreme climates."
>>12416987Linya noticed that Magnus had left out one very important physical sensation, and she was incredibly nervous, but also incredibly curious. "What... what about, you know...""What about what?"Linya stared a hole in the floor. "Well, you've told me how most of your body works, but you didn't tell me if you still feel pleasure." Her voice had dropped at the end, as she tried to cut herself off, but the result was instead sultry and seductive, an effect she had not expected.Magnus rotated his head in the fashion typical to show confusion. If he had eyebrows, he'd be raising one of those as well."Pleasure? That's one that is under my control. But to be honest, doing that yourself isn't all that great in a robotic body. The thrill comes from having someone else, not being able to tell what they'll do next, wondering where their going to touch you..."Magnus stopped and noticed that Linya had gotten very quiet and was sitting very still. He couldn't see her face, but behind her mask Linya's face was a deep purple shade of embarrassment. But that wasn't the only reaction she was having.
>>12416993Oh, fuck you.
>>12416993It felt like forever until Linya spoke again. "So, then, how do you actually, do it? Is it just an information transfer? Maybe a network connection?" Linya's voice grew higher as she listed all the ways that Magnus could have sex (she shuddered as she thought that word) without actually having sex."It's usually up to the people involved, but I have a, um, physical component." Magnus was incredibly grateful that his body didn't blush or exhibit embarrassment. Otherwise he'd be beet-red.Linya's breath caught. She couldn't believe where her line of questioning had gotten her, and she was torn between shame, curiosity, and arousal."A physical component? You mean... but, I don't see..."Magnus knew where this was going. Being honest with yourself was something you learned after living for centuries, and he decided that if this girl wanted to fuck, he'd go for it. He issued a mental command, and a hatch on his lower chassis popped up, revealing a dark recess.Linya leaned forward.With one shaking hand, she reached into Magnus' body and felt a soft, squishy 'thing' inside. She was practically hyperventilating as she drew her hand out, holding a long, pink... well, it looked like a sex toy. It was transparent, and inside there seemed to be some kind of gel. The... component... also seemed to be made up of several different parts. From the way they connected, it looked like they...Linya gulped.moved.
>>12417001"H-H-How d-d-does it work?" She tripped over every word, holding some stranger's genitals in her hand was not normal behavior for her. She tried to rationalize that it wasn't real, but this was a thinking, intelligent creature.Magnus issued another mental command, and an electrical shock triggered the gel, making it shift into a semi-solid state. His component jerked free of Linya's hand and grew to a respectable size. Linya, for her part, fell flat on her ass from surprise.However, now that it was 'erect' (she shuddered again) she could see more clearly the differentiated parts. There were circular parts, square parts, nubs, and the end was dominated by a large bulb. Linya shakily stood up and walked over to the wall, where she hit the decontamination button.There was a hiss, and an opaque white gas flushed the room. It was quickly ventilated, and Linya reached up and removed her face mask.Magnus' first thought was how human she looked. Two eyes, a nose and a mouth. The color of her skin was a dark purple, though it changed around her cheeks. He assumed she was blushing, which was very true.Linya began disassembling the rest of her suit, taking out tubes and hoses and placing them gently into a pile. Nude, she approached Magnus slowly, again appearing seductive by mistake. She took hold of Magnus' component again, stroking it gently.Magnus' body didn't have any automatic responses to things like pleasure, so he had to consciously show that Linya was doing a good job. He clenched and unclenched his fingers and let out a mechanical sigh as the stimulation was translated into pleasure by his mind.Linya had no experience past the magazines that she borrowed from some of her friends, so she was unsure what to do from this point on. Magnus' hand gently pushed her down, and she complied, getting on her knees, eye level with the component.
>>12417006Magnus watched as Linya opened her mouth as wide a she could and took in his component. While he'd been with other morphs, the feeling of an organic was hard to beat. He could tell she had no experience, but she certainly made up for that in effort.The component was soft enough that it could bend, and Linya had no problem working her mouth around it. She pushed until it was to her throat, then pulled back off, squeezing Magnus' softer part between her tongue and the roof of her mouth. She traced the small ridges between the various sections with her tongue, circling the nubs and flicking at ridges. Magnus' groans encouraged her, and soon she was shamelessly sucking him off.She pushed forward again, fitting half of the thing in her mouth, when the component came alive. Slowly at first, the various nubs along the length began vibrating, and other parts began to slowly spin around the shaft. Linya's thoughts went south, and she couldn't help but imagine what this thing would feel like inside her.Linya pulled herself off Magnus' component with a loud pop, and stood back up. Magnus took the time to examine her again. Her whole body was flushed to a dark blue and purple, her nipples were erect, and her legs were dripping with liquid. She seemed unsure of how to proceed, so he decided to make the next move.
>>12417008He took her by the shoulders and turned her around, gently pushing her over the table. He positioned himself and slightly prodded Linya's entrance. After determining that she was ready for him, he pushed forward as far has he could go, and his entire component slid inside her.Linya gripped the sides of the table as Magnus entered her. The pressure was unbelievable, and she squeezed back in retaliation to the unfamiliar feeling. That sent a wave of pleasure through her that she had never experienced on her own. She let out a low moan and left her mouth open as Magnus slowly withdrew, leaving only the bulb inside her.Linya waited for the next push, but nothing came. She looked over her shoulder and saw Magnus standing there, waiting. He beckoned her towards him, and she got the hint. She leaned back, drawing more of her partner into her. Once she was flush against his body, she felt the component activate inside her.The first ones Magnus turned on were the vibrating nubs that ran down the sides of the shaft. He simply held himself inside Linya and let the component do the work, and soon Linya bucked her hips and screamed as she had her first orgasm. Magnus turned off the nubs to let her catch her breath.
>>12417012Linya couldn't do anything but gasp for breath. She had muffled her scream, but her whole body was shaking from the intensity of the orgasm. Slowly, she recovered and pressed herself against Magnus again. This time, the entire component turned on. Vibrating nubs, spinning plates, circling plates, the end bulb grew and shrank almost rhythmically. Every inch of her was being stimulated, but Magnus only stood still. It was up to her to do the thrusting, a task she took to with exuberance. Linya ground against Magnus' body, pulled herself forward and slammed herself back down, crying from the overwhelming sensation that was taking her. With her next orgasm, she pushed herself so tightly against Magnus' body that her skin was discolored. She held it there and rode out the pleasure.Magnus was no longer controlling himself. The information from his body overloading his limits, electrical signals begin converted to pleasurable sensations that left him unable to do anything else but let himself be washed away in the feeling.Finally, Magnus' mind reached a preset limit. An automated signal went out and the component deep inside Linya contracted powerfully, ejecting a large load of the thick pink gel into Linya. The gel filled her up and leaked out, trailing down her legs and pooling on the floor.With great effort, Linya pulled herself off of Magnus, her breath hitching as she passed over the large bulb. With a barely perceptible whir, the component disappeared into Magnus, and the hatch closed shut.
>>12417014Linya fell down into the chair and started giggling uncontrollably. "That... that was the best thing I've ever done. Keelah! that was amazing!"Magnus nodded."It was incredible." Magnus' body had immediately restored his mind to a pre-sex state, but this was definitely a memory worth reviewing.Linya held up some of the gel. "Is this safe? I mean, it's an alien substance, it could-""Don't worry, it's hypoallergenic by every standard we know. Council standards too. You'll be fine."Linya licked some of the gel off her fingers. "You know, this stuff isn't half bad." She ran her hands across her body and sucked the gel off of them.A mental trigger alerted Magnus that his presence was requested. "Well Linya, I enjoyed this very much, but now I've got to get back to work. Maybe I'll see you again.""Maybe Magnus, maybe." Magnus left the room and headed back to the diplomat's chamber, running cleaning cycles to remove pheromones and other secretions from his body. But even though there would be no more physical evidence, he filed away the memory into his core data, ensuring that it would remain with him forever.~fin[Copy pasta from one of the previous ME/EP threads.]
>Eclipse Phase+Mass Effect>Combining a setting where transhumanity is, without a doubt doomed, with a setting where completely ordinary humans are innately superior to everyone else.
>12417074Everyone else is just as fucked as T-Humanity
>>12417074>completely ordinary humansI guess you missed the part where baseline humanity pretty much doesn't exist in ME. Almost everyone is at least genescreened and genefixed for basic genetic problems, and *every* Alliance soldier is subject to a genetic upgrade package. Seriously, do that one quest on Noveria where you have to talk to the dude whilst an Asari hacks him. You even get to argue about whether X increased clotting factor is better than Y increased clotting factor. And EP isn't a setting where Humanity is doomed. It's a setting where Humanity has taken a beating and needs to get back on it's feet.
>>12417293>And EP isn't a setting where Humanity is doomed. It's a setting where Humanity has taken a beating and needs to get back on it's feet.With the sword of Damocles hanging overhead ready to drop at any moment.Of course, the Mass Effect setting has its own variant of the sword hanging overhead. Not hard to combine the two from each setting into one.
>>12417328What was the impending doom in Eclipse Phase, the threat of the Titans returning or the fungus aliens finding out that we've already done all the things they asked us not to do prior to them making contact with us?
>>124173341. The TITANS weren't gone entirely. They still had control of Earth. Mostly they just... stopped killing humanity and fucked off to who-knows-where.2. The book talks about possible reasons for the TITAN AI's going batshit insane, and one of them revolved around the exsurgent virus and how it could have been sent out by a superior alien race seeking to wipe out any civilizations that grow too advanced. Which fits in almost perfectly with the Reapers - who want intelligent life, but nothing strong enough to stand up to them, which is exactly the direction that Transhumanity was/is headed with the kind of technology they're developing.
>>12417360From what I read it wasn't so much that they were still in control of earth as much as they didn't bother turning their toys of before they left.
Anon who made up these race sheets: you do God's work, my son.
>>12416372The "turians as mario" idea is amazing.
So...Uh. No concrete feedback?
>>12417700Well.. For starters the Krogan blood rage should be an morph ability, because basically it's an human adrenaline rush amped up to eleven, no action from the ego involved. However the ego penalties seem alright otherwise.Also, I would lower the Salarian COG bonus to +5 because I assume these morphs are Flats, and give the +10 to a Salarian Splice equivalent.Other than those, looking good.
>>12417827Actually, looking at the baseline, I'm assuming all morphs are spliced- there's basically splicing going on in ME canon, even without EP meddling in it.
>>12417624"It's-a me! Garrio!"
was the deal with time outs here?
>>12416889argh>>12416905double arghShouldn't have fallen asleep so early, didn't get a chance to thank you guys.Regrettably, I'm a finicky bastard. I suppose I'll go with that Tali art for the quarians. Still nothing Batarian, hrm. Might have to take you up on your offer, birdonhead(?) if that's your blog up there. And you seem to do fine quality work. I'll throw you a request sometime.Also, this r cool pictar.
>>12416355Why haven't I noticed this thread earlier?OP! YOU FORGOT TO ARCHIVE IT YOU DEPRESSED MISERABLE BAG OF LOW-SELF STEEM AND... DEPRESSION!I did it for you :3http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/12416355
>>12416355>Turians not as advanced as humansWUT? The Turians are on equal footing with humans as far as technology goes just like everyone in Council Space. Humans were nowhere near their level of tech during the First Contact War and humanity only took back Shanxi after amassing a full fleet. After Shanxi the Turians would have gone to full scale war with humanity had the Council not intervened.Not only that but their ship weaponry is far superior, the Prototype cannons Garrus installs on the SR2 are of Turian design which was backwards engineered from Sovereign's guns; only the Turians were able to pull that off according to their description in the codex.
>>12425090Remember this is including Eclipse Phase technology.
>>12425090Shh..This is TRANSHUMANITY we are talking about mah boi.and about your point about the Thanix Cannon. Read the page again.What does it says?>yes, human, we'll advance faster even than you.Now grab some reading comprehension and proceed.
>>12425109Admittedly EP fleet technology is probably behind or was behind Turian Technology.EP triggered an arms race, a race that the Reapers don't really want happening and one that will bring a lot of new toys for all parties involved.
>>12425155Can Geth get EP tech?
>>12425202I don't see why not, though their hostile nature would make it more difficult to acquire.
some1 archive that epic writefaggorty cuz i dont know how too yet.
>>12425276Well, that depends on which Geth.Remember their race effectively split when the Reapers Entered the picture. Normally the Geth only go hostile when someone uninvited enters the Perseus Vail.
EVERYONE QUIET THE FUCK DOWN!I'M TRYING TO FINISH THESE CALLIBRATIONS.
An Eclipse Phase opted Volus would be highly amusing.I OWN THIS ROOM, I OWN YOU!
>>12425319And they don't leave, and the ones that do leave are hostile to everyone. So they don't have much chance to get their hands on EP tech.
>>12425348There's also the whole, "making their own future on their own" thing.
>>12425348Well I could see an alliance of the Geth with Transhumanity. While transhumanity is organic mind uploaded to a synthetic body, they share more in common than Geth do to say their makers. I'm sure the loyalist would contact TH and see what they can do to help them in their effort with the separatist. >>12425155Turians aren't the technological powerhouses, that's the Salarians. What Turians have is basically the will to endure on, despite being the Mario race. However the fact the technology is stagnated and develops slowly on a path the Reapers want. It's only after Sovereign was destroyed did they develop the Thanix cannon. Generally Salarians are on top that shit, but since Turians have almost unlimited military spending and leeway they pushed the Salarians out before they could get their hands on the technology.
There should be an alternate setting where mankind decided not to tell the council everything and to build up in prep for war instead. They manage to keep a lid on their secrets for a good while, (Helped by Turians airquoting every Salarian discovery) then it finally gets public in a way even the council would notice. Now a war has come to the stars. The Council has an edge in conventional firepower, but Transhumanity was not caught unprepared. They have things like a "cure"(using controlable nanomachines to turn it on/off) for the Genophage, etc. . . .
>>12427026Okay.In canon, Mankind decided to be open with the aliens in a spirit of cooperation, trusting in good will to avoid unfair consequences. It was a narrow choice. A single event could have altered this choice, and the fate of the galaxy, forever.The event in question was almost trivial. A minor delay in coding, less than a hundreth of a second long. It would have made no difference at all in normal conditions. A battle is far from normal conditions. When the hackers acted to disable the Turian warships, one of them was too slow to prevent it from opening fire on the planet below.
>>12427152bump!i want more!
QUARIANSGLARGHBENEFITS WHAT BENEFITS SHOULD THEY HAVE
>>12427152Turians where already opening fire all the way there bro.and as long as you keep it AU is fine, we should try not to mess with our current writebro's work.I actually had the same idea, but it involved me trying to mod Starcraft II as well.
Bump for the bump god.BUMP for the BUMP GOD!BUMP FOR THE BUMP GOD
How would the Geth react to Transhumans?
>>12429105Depend on which side of Geth. Saren Geth would see human as a beautiful combination of Man and Machine.Normal Geth would probably see them as another creature.But I have no knowledge of the setting so I'm probably wrong.
Slightly off topic, but Im kinda hopeing for ME3 to pull a small EP and make Shepard some sort of syborg superbeing in charge of the wellbeing of the galaxy for untold centuries in the future..
Hey OP, Will you add the Collectors?
>>12429282FAVORITE RACE IN MASS EFFECT.
Aw... I wanna read this thread, but I'm only just after the part where I get Liara in ME1...
bumpin' keep bumpin'keep bumpin' it up!
Requesting Hanar sheet plz.They seem like they'd be fun to roleplay. I'd make a Hanar character who was a huge dick, but still talked with those super-polite speech patterns they have.
>>12429552they are all HUUUGE dicks that talk superpolitely.
BIG. STUPID. JELLYFISH.
We need some Kamen ShepardAlso, OPS asked about the Quarians? why not give them a buff to the required stats when building,fixing, hacking, salvaging and doing engineering related shit.?
>>12429692I have another pic that need editing. Can't find it right now.But I always thought that quote is wrong. it should be somewhere around the lines of "Even if there are not Spirits or Keelah, There is Commander Shepard"Since it is weird for Garrus to talk about God (since they have a completely different set of culture)
>>12429552It would be interesting to see how the Hanar react to the news that transhumans uplifted a bunch of species.
>>12429692Ok, I have to be "that guy"Where the hell did you find that, and where can I do the same?
>>12429677>kamenshepardN1! N2! N3!I'd watch it so hard.
>>12430075It's posted on /v/ all the time in Mass Effect threads. That's where I got it from.Don't know where it came from originally sorry.
>>12430075It's a photoshopped page from the Kamen Rider manga.
Oh and if human are all transhumans now. What happen to Cerberus? Turn into a Pure Human terrorist? Absorb with the rest of the transhumans? Never happen?
>>12430232The Illusive Man is humanity's ambassador to the citadel.
>>12430232They could be a militant, extremist wing of the bioconservative faction.
>>12430232I wasn't aware that Cerberus had the primary mission of preventing Tranhumanism. Wasn't the mission of Cerberus to protect and promote human interests? That still needs to be done just as much as it used to.
>>12430248Not without The Illusive Man they are not.I also always pictured Zaeed as belonging or at least originating from the Jovian Junta in this setting.Another thing, Remember that girl from before?(the one that gave Shepard the mission to investigate the facility) at least I think it was a girl, she wrote a lot like I think Kelly Chambers would do.She certainly also has the promiscuity to go with it.
>>12430239Well atleast he'll be much better than Udina.>>12430248Right.>>12430345Cerberus mission is to protect human and power. But I just thought it would be fun to see a fanatic pure human faction.
quite nice the char sheets, but the salarians ego attributes ought to be at his morph characteristics, because they are have such heightend capabilities due to the faster metabolism and shorter life.Or the ego bous should apply only when slarian ego is in a salarian morph. in say, a furry morph his ego bonuses fly away... same for turian( mostly because of conflict if he till is a turian). the asari perhaps could keep her ego characteristic in a different body (definitely the savvy will remain)...just my opinion.there should be massive dice rolls in the mental department and severe repercussions for any alien trying to use a different morph than one similar to their body( so a Asari recasting itself in a Asari morph with heavy improvements ought to have no problems, but trying a salarian or a human morph would be a very daunting task, with mental illnesses lurking all over the way and serious identity crises)
Currently working through some ideas on how the stuff on the Planetary Consortium in "Sunward" could be applied to this mashup. I'm thinking that what happens is a civil war almost breaks out within the PC when word gets out about the Prothean ruins on Mars and the relay contained there, breaking its influence just enough to allow the creation of a Systems Alliance that actually has some semblance of power. The PC isn't gone, but it now has two major internal factions that don't much like each other, one of which is in favor of greater contact with the galactic community and one of which wants to be more cautious.
I love this setting, keep it coming.
>>12433732Isn't that what basically happens in the Contagonist's backstory?Except there is a fullscalle war, the PC surrenders and the technology is distributed among transhumanity. The Systems Alliance is then created out of necessity and is very frail due to a lot of infighting.
>>12434937Not quite. More like the PC is prevented from grabbing the Charon Relay and forced to make common cause with the Autonomist Alliance in the outer system in order to use it.I thought of the PC civil war when I read the descriptions of the hypercorps that actually run the PC and realized that several of them would logically be at odds over the Prothean ruins on Mars. It also seemed necessary to prevent the whole thing from just being a PC-run show, because otherwise they just control too much of transhumanity's population and military strength to not steadily usurp control of the Systems Alliance.
>>12416355Transhumans are shit.
>>12416879Maybe they don't rely on facial expressions? Hell, a good 1.5% of humans don't rely on facial expressions or body language as it is, wouldn't be a stretch for Quarians to not use such expressions at all.
>>12416943I guess 50,000 vessels, civilian or not, makes for some pretty effective gunboat diplomacy.
argabl!!!perhaps will see what happens with Wrex and the exugent
Quarians comin any time soon?
>>12435282I'm sure the more reliance on body language, and tone matters to a Quarian. They can't see each other's faces, so body language may have more emphasis. As for Cerberus I could see Cerberus being an offshoot of the Jovian Junta. Perhaps using the Junta's military philosophy but applying it to all of Transhumanity instead of the bios only.
>>12438070I'm working on it at the moment. A lot of personal bullshit to go through, sorry.>>12436852And I haven't forgotten about those misadventures either. Though I broke the rule about pre-writing. Ahem.Anyway, polite sage for bringing nothing but reassurances. Gimme an hour or so, I'll have something up. And thanks to>>12424974It's up on the suptg archive, so don't stay up late for it now.
And the quarian page!I don't think I'll be doing this piecemeal stuff anymore. Next thread I start, I'll try to have something more substantial, maybe even in pdf form! Hahaha, like that'd ever happen.Anyway, if you guys see anything you think should be fixed, please, tell me! Even if it's just my annoying habit of writing the crunch for the species over the picture, if you don't like it, I'll try to change it.
>>12439037Why is the transhuman interested in Quarians?
>>12439370Heh, i lol'd.
>>12439037What other race will you be doing?
This is good enough reason.Captcha: moverm effectClose, Captcha, Close...
>>12429309>>12429282What happen to the collectors now that Shepard isn't a spectre hero.
Excellent work, please continue, moar writefaggotry please.
>>12439407That is some Grade A creepy shit right there.
I do say, this thread is quite a good one
>>12439407I have been in a knife fight without a weapon, and heard bullets going inches over my head, and this is still the most terrifying thing I've ever seen in my life.

>>12439469I freaking like it!
>>12439037>MacGuyverThis. Right here, needs to stop. It's "MacGyver." There's no "U" in it, at least not in the character's name who is portrayed by Richard Dean Anderson.Other than that, nice job! Keep it up, looking forward to reading more fluff for ME/EP.

>>12439491Citadel Council Logo. Since Quarians are a Citadel race.>>12439540Thanks.
>>12439576oh bugger me, I can't believe I did that.Anyway, as far as other race pages go, I know I'm going to do Batarians, because they're the other kind of norm species. Regrettably, official concept art aren't there, so I'll deal with that later.After that, I suppose Hanar/Elcor/Volus. There's art of them, and they're popular enough. It'll just be a little strange to figure out the stats for them, and how they can interact with the environment. Regrettably, I think the volus will be suffering the most in that matter. Collector morph would be cool past that, but they'd probably be NPCs. Don't really have insight into the Collector Ego other than 'can be possessed at any time by a reaper across the galaxy for some reason.'But before all that, I want to get another chapter of the whole dealie that started this out, and maybe scratch up some intro fiction to preface the book. >>12439469I like it. I think it actually looks a lot better than my stuff. Only thing I'd complain about is the red bar up top- for some reason it makes me think of Star Wars.
>>12439622glargh, useless post, but I was referring to>>12439568and my fucking up of 'MacGyver'. I don't word good now me sleep
>>12439622Didn't we have a Batarian counterpart to Commander Shepard?I think his name was Commander Xepard.
>>12439407I don't think we can have another Humanity-Fuck-Yeah thread until whomever wrote that is dead.
>>12439642No worries, I'm in dire need of sleep as well. I always see that spelling though, where do people get that? Phonetic pronunciation? Seems odd, considering it's use in popular culture.>fact, quismanWhy yes, it is indeed a fact, quisman Captcha. It is indeed a fact.
>>12439622Alright. Removed the Red Bar.(Have to edited a bit out)
>>12439622>Collector morph would be cool past that, but they'd probably be NPCsHow would they interact with human? would they be enemy?
>>12439813Considering they are servants of immortal god machines that want to wipe out all organic life in the galaxy? Yes, they would be enemies.
>>12439822But can human even count as organic? They're part machine.
Does anybody else do not like, I mean hate, turians and the annoying bitches who love them? All psuedo furry scum. I cant decide what they look like more: corpses, felines or birds. I'm sick of seeing twisted fangirls that want to do nothing more than draw Garrus fucking their Fem-Shepards and Turian fan chars sucking cock.If you're considering a turian char than you're either a repressed homosexual fascist-loving nerd with a hardon for militarism or an annoying hambeast bitch who wants Garrus inside her gaping cavernous vagina. Pic related; annoying bitches and their turian OCs. DevianTart is crawling with them.
Sage for Eclipse Phase/vidya related bullshit.Both are bad enough as it by themselves but curse the son of a bitch who mixed it to satisfy his own retarded wank humanity fuck yeah.more like fuck you.
>>12439876>BAAAAWWWW STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKEu mad?
This is good stuff.
As if humanity wasn't OP enough in normal ME. Typical /tg/ bullshit.
>>12439711I would like to know how is that any less creepy than the Garrus fangirls that claim that Garrus's load will taste like Montain Dew.If I remember correctly that whole chemistry thing came up when someone wanted details to spice up their fapfiction.
>>12439899Wasn't explained before that in the practical sense the real advantage Transhumanity has against the alien races is their advanced ECM and easily replaceable troops?And the Exurgent Virus, but most TH are not stupid enough to believe they can use them as weapons without unforeseen consequences
>>12440040Er dude, the exsurgent virus is "bad nasty horrible things, with teeth, and claws" kind of stuff.Transhumanity in EP's so scarred by the Fall that nobody in their right, sane mind would even consider using it as a weapon even for a moment. The best you're gonna get are The Lost, and even then, that's only because nobody knows they've been infected.
go back to dresden codak transhumanist faggots
>>12439854>BAAAAAAAAW Fictional non-existant characters get more pussy than I do.wait... there's something wrong here.
>>12439876>>12439899>>12440091you suck the turians' cocks and spread your legs for them
>>12440080y so butthurt?
>>12440101>>12439854HATERS GONNA HATE
>>12439854I bet this chucklefuck must love ME EP bullshit, since it involves Transhoomanity screws over the fucking turians. Everyone in this thread is dicks. I say without hesitation that because of Eclipse Phase bullshit /v/ has better ME threads (which is where ME belongs, anyway =/= not /tg/ and this is a perfect example of what you get when you bring it here. HFY wankery and neckbeard faggots stroking each other's penises.)
>>12440117Dude, I'm enjoying this thread.I don't care what your chickenshit self has to say about it.You can F*ck off now.
>>12440113The only people who find turians interesting are fangirls and homosexuals, which is just so incredibly sad that words cannot even describe it.
>>12440172I like turians
>>12440175Congratulations, you have the preferencesn suppressed homossexual urges and hardon for militarism of an angry high schooler
>>12440040>Wasn't explained before that in the practical sense the real advantage Transhumanity has against the alien races is their advanced ECM and easily replaceable troops?And the fact that their backup tech means they're functionally immortal, that they have a far better grasp of AI and computer technology, and that their upload and cloning tech means that they can effortlessly infiltrate spies into the Council? You know, all these little horribly OP details? It's like sticking Superman into the Half-Life universe and then go "well hey, he can still be killed by Kryptonite lol".
>>12440172What about fangirls who like them for more than just dem mandibles?
meepers have ruined eclipse phase and mass effect for me.well, fuck you /tg/. Getting the hell out before they start frankensteining other shit so they can live out their angry chud fantasies.
>>12440193Hush, let the fags keep thinking they're making everything better by throwing everything together into their clumsy, retarded setting.It's like being eight years old all over again.
>>12440196I can't think of any other reason why people would like turians other than their spindly dicks and unholy voices. they have a souless culture and are all likely buttfucking, repressed militaristic faggots.
>>12440040Nope, still not buying your Mary Sue Transhuman Master Race.
>>12440222Good for you.
>>12440222You don't even know what the word Mary Sue means.
>>12440222>>12440218>>12440204>>12440198>>12440191So this is what /tg/ is like nowadays, eh?
>>12440235Same as it ever was really.
>>12440235The guy whining about how much he hates Turians is a moron.But the whole ME/EP thing...well, it could have been interesting, but it's just Humanity Fuck Yea wankery in a different costume. In a way it's a shame as there's a few good ideas and a lot of work gone into it...but never progressed much beyond Hurrrmanity Stong.
>>12416803>>12416803>>12416803WHERE IS THE REST?DON'T LEAVE ME HANGING
>>12440241You are a colossal fag. ME/EP is the best thing to have come out of /tg/ in the past year.
>>12440241You are entitled to your opinion, but I will respectfully disagree.Now move on, just because it's something you aren't interested in doesn't mean the rest of us have to stop discussing it.
>>12440241>is a turian loving furfag
ITT: whining nancies argue over the mutilation of a secondrate Bioware dating sim and their shitty additions. also turian dicks
>>12440143U mad because your fanfic setting is shit and looks like something a kid threw together from elements of everything he thinks is cool?
>>12440191You do know that most fangirls end up shipping femsheppard with a turian, right?>>12440269They don't have fur. Scalefeg you twit.
Honestly, I've always hated how Humans Are Better in most of Bioware's games.
>>12440314And hark at how these Eclipse Phase fags take it and turn it up to tens times the obnoxiousness.
I love how all you gaywads hungry for Garrus's scaly penis are trying to deny your blatant homosexuality.Name me one thing interesting or redeeming about the turians as a species.
>>12440331Garrus's scaly penis.
Fuck, we are getting trolled.Stop feeding him or will hit 300 againalso, in related news, now with eclipse phase at least there is a reason humans are somewhat special in than in the vanilla ME
>>12440331their faces look like KITTY
>>12440349>also, in related news, now with eclipse phase at least there is a reason humans are somewhat special in than in the vanilla MEPeople like you are the problem.
>>12440349You know, this is exactly what little children do. When they see something in a story or movie that's not going their way, or they don't sympathise with the protagonist, or a particularly unlikeable villain is getting the upper hand, they usually insert in a more powerful hero of their own choosing/imaging and rewrite the whole story in their minds to something closer to what they expect of it.Most kids grow out of it. Not Eclipse fags.
>>12440383Don't lay this on us. I like Eclipse Phase and I find ME/EP tedious, because its a wank even by EP standards. Transhumanity Fuck Yeah goes against the spirit of Eclipse Phase and the turds who enjoy this shit so much should go look at Infinity or something.
ITT: STOP LIKING THINGS THAT I DON'T LIKE!Seriously, this entire board is based around the notion of making up pretend universes and playing games in them. Some of these games will not jive with some people. Seriously. Quit getting mad at games.

>>12440306hehe..actually Turians would be more like Platefags.
ITT: Samefag troll everywhere.
Although EP/ME comes off a bit wankish, people should really give a little more credit to the Citadel's technology and stuff.We take so much of the Mass Effect Universe for granted that most don't really notice that the health system and other quirks are actually happening in the universe (not getting shot for 5 seconds restores you to full health) and other quirks.For better or worse we should assume that Transhumanity is more comparable to the Geth, which most people doesn't notice, are the real Mary Sues to the ME universe.
>>12441230And one more thing!You fags seems to have never heard of the basic Idea of crossovers, and even with the small flaws of EP/ME you haven't really seen WANK until you see the Draka/ME crossovers, the many, many and unnecessarily frequent Halo/Me crossover (with all the bullshit including the retarded Super MAC Teraton yeilds) Dr. Who/ME and a C&C/ME (with the GDI alone being equal in power to the Citadel thanks to Tiberium monopoly and lolbuildtimes)There's even a Naruto/ME setting out there, don't even get me started on that one.I admit that the very first time I created EP/ME here http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/8224490It was basically an excuse to talk about ME in /tg/ again but I'm not unhappy with the results. I was surprised some writefags actually rolled with the Idea and continued it to this day. I also archived most of these threads on /suptg/ incluiding this one DEAL WITH ITPS: not mad, just upset.
>>12441330It became a nice setting.I once dabbled with the thought of doing a writefaggotry concerning it, but my Word(tm) skillz are low...
>>12441330A setting is just a stage for the story, good writing can make even the worst crossover ideas entertaining, and a bad writer can take the best setting ever and fill it with furries wearing diapers. If you want to enjoy a setting, you can ignore the plot holes and the bad fanfics and focus the good parts. If you want to hate something, you can find hundreds of reasons to justify your hatred and call anyone who disagrees with you an immature poophead.I like the EP/ME setting because the obvious differences in scale, technology, and stability between the two offers a lot of potential for interesting social, economical, and military conflict. It's not anywhere near balanced enough to make for a standard adventuring party type rpg, but it's fertile ground for storytelling. So far the writefags have been more hit than miss, there's been the board mandated minimum quota of HFY! and xenophilic fanwankery, but the volume of interesting and readable fluff has been well above average.
>>12440403Eclipse Phase is the exact opposite of Humanity Fuck Yeah.It's Humanity getting its shit kicked in by hubris and machine intelligences, followed by a dystopia where the technology is vastly improved but everybody still lives out shitty lives due to the cramped spaces, ideological disagreements and wars, lack of many resources like bodies, and slavery.
>>12438441I want to know what happens to Xepard's team next, I'm actually enjoying your story more than Bioware's. Xepard's internal dialogue makes for better character development than vidya Shepard's kick puppy/save orphans decision tree. I also found ME's portrayal of humanity as the plucky underdog and the council as incompetent authority figures just as cliched as the unstoppable super soldiers that that fill up most of the HFY! threads. Devious, blackmailing politicians and helpful but untrustworthy foreign operatives make for more interesting stories, so long as they are written well.

I still wondering how Sheppard can have sex with a turian.
>>12462253you want some graphic evidence?because if that is what you want, I have plenty.
so, am i getting this right. Somebody has adapted mass effect into a P&P system?
>>12463557i dont think it'd be that hard, just maybe awkward at times when something happens the other doesn't expect, like if garrus ejaculates beads or something.
>>12463674I'm wondering how the hell is Garrus going to fuck Shepard, humans don't have Vaginal Mandibles, sex is probably going to hurt like fuck.
>>12463848LOVE OVERCOMES ALL
>>12463868I mean, I once got to see a human naked, and they have hard muscle everywhere!Withouth vaginal mandibles to extend and rub on the male's shaft how is he going to feel pleasure at all? By the Spirits It will probably be like fucking a rock or something.
>>12463998>>12463848the fuck is happening????There is no canon on the aliens sexorgans known, because there is no cannon turian female depicted . For all we know they might be ugly as fuck and they are fingerbanging each other during sex because improvise
>>12466035We know Krogan have 4 balls and that Asari are 'Physically compatible' with human males.
>>12466066Oh and Salarians have a Cloaca.
>>12466035It's true that there is no canon evidence for turian vaginal mandibles.But look at them. You know they have them. Something deep inside you warns you to beware of them.
>>12466090Actuaky, Id be more woried not to break them. Turians have somehow this slim look..... Like they could be broken at any time..... like Crack!
Damn... I wonder how Fleet & Flotilla turned out in this universe.
>>12466111Game fluff seems to suggest Turians are about as strong as humans, and slightly tougher to injure.I imagine we're faster than they are, and can probably run vastly greater distances, since that's kind of our whole niche as a species, besides the tool use thing.
>>12466169Tool use is down to basically every species with advanced technology. Or, hell, basic technology, since tools are about as basic as technology gets.But yeah, I don't see Turians having particularly good endurance.
>>12466203Turians seem most similar to birds (Although they're from a different planet and their amino acids have a different chirality) so what can we extrapolate from that?Most of what birds have was adapted for flight. So, turians as Moas?
>>12466221Turians look sort of birdlike to us but there's no evidence that they have any relation to birds.Also, they have somewhat better resistance to radiation than most other species; that's what the exoskeleton's for.
>>12466221birds shit and piss out of one hole and it just comes out goopy
Is it bad that thinking of quarians as human-shaped cephalopods only makes me harder?
>>12466035It's impossible for Turian females to be ugly IF they look like turians.I mean... just take a look.I know there's a betterpicture but I can't find it.>DATPICTUREitwastherewhenIdidn'tneededit.jpg
hmm..remember that there are no baseline humans in the ME universe anymore.Everyone undergoes genetic treatment and soldiers also get increased stamina, strength etc.It is still impressive how Shepard sends Turians flying with his/her punches.
>>12466385That's because he's a cyborg with artificial bones, muscle, etc.
>>12466284Aren't the asari filling that niche?They may all look like Kamen Rider.Mmmmmmmmm..... Rider POUNCE!
>>12466405I'm talking about ME1.
>>12466427The asari just have little head-folds. They aren't even motile like proper tentacles.I want Quarians to be like those sexy Illithids people draw.
>>12466438Yeah, but in practice Shepard doesn't actually change in strength; the cyborg thing was, amongst other reasons, designed to explain why Shepard can effortlessly knock people over and shit. Retroactively. They realized it didn't make sense in ME1.
>>12466448well..Looking on the bright side, the blowjobs would be incredible.
>>12466483It made sense with the fucking armor upgrades.
>>12466500I figured, "Hey, their sweat is hallucinogenic viagra. Might as well go full-eldritch with this shit!"And then it was totally sexy and hot.I wish to make a hotdog with Tali's sweet cuttlefish ass.
>>12466532Yeah, problem was you could still knock people over wearing starter armour with no upgrades.
>>12466560ah... genetic upgrades.>>12466557Oh!, so I see you also have taken that little theory as part of your personal cannon?*BROFIST*
>>12466333there is not a thing to suggest that turian females have a similar proportionality like human females.For all we know they may have a quite different proportionality and body architecture. - you know what i am meaning , and it is not the frigging scales
>MFW this thread is still here.
>>12468163It is one of those questions that only time may answer.So far we've only seen a Krogan Female (they look the same)
