    While the ME/EP seems to have died out in a shitstorm of disgruntled fanboism, I call on /tg/ to continue it or re-imagine it.

    I could paste the stuff from the previous mesh threads. Fuck it, I'm doing it.

    "It's been thirty years since the first contact war when the turians attacked us; and since we proved ourselves less than easy prey."

    "Through our war, and the display of our strength, we earned the ears and eyes of the galaxy. The next time the council races came, they came with diplomats. They were willing to talk, to listen to us. So, we told them of ourselves, our struggles, and warned them of the TITANs. We were honest, direct, and offered a hand of peace."

    "Through this, we earned for ourselves a prison."

    "An easily circumvented and increasingly porous prison, but a prison nonetheless. Every mass relay leading out of the Transhuman Exclusion Zone is patrolled by the Turian's fleet- which has been rebuilding since the ass kicking we delivered in 2157. Salarian STG and council specters move through our space with impunity, on missions of 'peace,' patrolling to see if we'll slip up."

    "Not that it really bothers me of course. They're all so backward I can't help but pity them in a way. If push comes to shove, they'll crumble. But nonetheless, I'm not the only one irritated at being locked up in here, with our hands tied waiting for the TITANs or the exsurgent virus to finish us all off. Autonomists, corps, hell, even the Jovians are all clamoring for the TEZ to be breached."

    "So. On to the main topic then: how to break out of prison."

    "The Turian peacekeeping fleet is currently ballooning to unsustainable levels. Whatever trauma that the Turians felt after the war with humanity has blinded them to reason and logic."

    "43 dreadnoughts have been manufactured, with a further seventeen planned. The Hierarchy claims that with the new reports of geth infringing on the Terminus systems, that war is inevitable and they should be ready, but they simply do not understand the fact that their fleet will strain the already limited supplies of element zero to their very limits."

    "Oh sure, of course the turian projections show that they have enough to cover engine and barrier needs for their fleet- ignoring, of course, the increased drain that mines and transports will put on that. You spend element zero to get element zero, councilor, I don't need to remind you of the panic of 2170."

    "Why go to you? Well, though I represent a subject species of the Hierarchy, we are also mindful of our position in council. We always try to do our best to ensure that citadel space's economy functions after all- we take our responsibilities very seriously."

    Well it needs to be limited, on that we agree, otherwise we'd just overwhelm the entire galaxy using infowar tech and Reaper bots. The fluff of the one shouldn't overlap too much into the other. For instance the resleeving part would stay, the TEZ [Transhuman Exclusion Zone] would also be there, but alas I am not a writefagg with sufficient imagination to write an entirely new setting up even when using two that are known to me. One of the things that nobody mentioned in this mash-up is what happens with the infogees? The ones who got their egos uploaded while still feeling Earth when the TITANs went insane, but didn't get a body as there weren't enough to go around.

    TEZ cannot be enforced by Council if transhumans get to be united over it.

    Best to handle Transhuman would be in a Geth-ish way... without the open hostility

    say, aster the war all explored systems by the council in which they can project force and or hold property is citadel space,

    as EP forces were without Eezo/just learning EP players/characters can travel in citadel space as they would have diplomatic imutity unless they actively go against Coucil law, like turning AI's loose or activating relays...

    Meanwhile most of the EP Transhuman powers have gone to explore the close by systems as anything liked by relay is most likely coucncil playground, and to not incur MAD ( both sides are terrified) they stay out of everyone's soup.

    This way you get only ME PC's going into the Transhuman sphere and only EP PC's going into Coucil and ME relay network ( major NPC's also)

    AF 10 would be most appropriate. There are not that many people around, IIRC there was only about 500 millions left around when the TITANs finished their work.
    As for the Eezo part... I'm not sure what would be good for the fluff. Giving them Eeezo might be a bit too much.


    The Geth are not true AI. IIRC, they only gained higher thinking when they were network-combined, even Legions is a combination of over 1.8k various Geth entities. AI in EP is much more powerful, and while many have the obstruction in their programing never allowing them to self-improve to the point of becoming a threat to transhumans, there are others AI who existed before the Fall and are without such restrictions, Project Ozma I think they're called.


    Not entirely post-scarcity. They have the infogees, but not enough morphs for them. True, some exist purely as infomorphs and back-ride with other morphs as just an observer. But yeah, I like the idea of TEZ but it's totally unfeasible in actuality. Too many plot holes.


    That's one obstacle of creating this mesh-up. It has been suggested in the previous threads that the Reapers would not know of transhumanity's growth as they didn't use Mass Relays up until that point. Also, Pandora Gates... do we keep them or scrap them?

    All those planets that you scan in ME1 and ME2 that used to have high-tech civilizations until "some mysterious cataclysm" destroyed them entirely mean nothing to you? Reapers watch the galaxy, and the only way to survive is to follow the technological development steps that the Reapers dictate (mass relay activation and use of the Mass Effect).

    The Reapers and ETI from EP can be basically the same thing. They wait until organic life reaches a certain point, then reach out and extinctify the fuck out of it.

    The Exsurgent Virus is stage one of their assault on organic life. Stage two is the equivalent of Saren. Stage three is the Collectors. Stage Four is whatever comes in the next game - some mass invasion of Reapers.
    >> Anonymous 12/19/10(Sun)09:24 No.13215199

    A few things in the settings overlap. Pandora Gates and Mass Relays, for instance, both being FTL space transit points. Both are integral to their respective settings but you can't have both in the crossover. I mean, if the Reapers built the Mass Relays, why would they leave another, competing system for FTL travel around? It would disrupt their plans. Also, if there are Mass Relays, why would humanity opt to use Pandora Gates? Mass Relays are reliable and do not cause SAN loss when used.

    Then there's the issue of the Reapers and the ETI...

    >Reapers watch the galaxy

    But how? Most of them are in hybernation in dark-space, while leaving only one to watch over the galaxy. And he only watches out for when the Citadel gets new inhabitants. Those wasted civilizations might have been offed by the Reapers, but they must've used the technology the Reapers themselves left behind [mainly the Mass Relays and use of the Citadel] for them to be detected. How would the Reapers know of a lifeform contained in one or two solar systems which do not use ME tech?

    If you have the two settings coexisting side by side then it's not a crossover, it's just a clusterfuck. Seriously, two different types of elder monstrosities that farm galactic civilizations? The setting's too crowded. And humans as puppets of the ETI against the Citadel races that are puppets of the reapers? Puppets vs puppets don't sit well with me.

    How about Reapers and TITANS are the same thing. Humanity developed our own technology, we didn't know about the Citadel or alien life. We build the SEED AIs the TITANs, which are essentially Reapers in ways except in name. Truth is we never really built the SEED AI it was lead to believe we did, and a premature harvest began. This was The Fall, why they didn't finish the job is unknown.

    Waygates turn into mass relays. Since we didn't have the technology to use the mass relays fully only enough to send in a few Crashers through. Only when the Prothean ruins were found that EZero was found, it was just used to power the relays. There was a few Extra Solar systems colonized before a Turian patrol ship was alerted by the number of unexplored mass relays were open. They attacked Transhumanity, and won the initial battle, but Transhumanity came back with digital warfare that decimated the Turian fleet. However just like in ME the Council stepped in before it evolved to a full scale war.

    So Transhumanity threw together a "System Alliance" compromised of several infomorphs from each faction in a Case. They went to represent Transhumanity as a whole, but when it was reviled that you know what they are. The Council didn't invite them in and quarantined the sector of space where we've set up shop.

    Do note that Transhumanity isn't united, they're still split into the many different factions. However just like in EP w/ Gates a Megacorps owns a mass relay and colonies.

    I never understood all the butthurt against ME/EP crossover.
    The predominant argument seemed to be: "herpa, derp, HUMANITY FUCK YEAH sucks! stop liking what I don't like."

    I think many people fail to realize that this is not the case of HUMANITY FUCK YEAH, more like a case of ALIENS DUMBFUCKS.
    Just think for a minute, the aliens have had the Citatel for over millenia. It is fair to say that they have been space-fairing for at least several centuries before that.
    But in ALL that time they have hardly developed further. They sit on their fat asses, content with stability and stagnation.
    ALL of the technologies that could have helped them to advance further (AI, Nano-Tech, etc) have been banned for a long, long time.

    I think it is great to have them being bitch-slapped across the face and them seeing their collective mistakes. The EP humanity is what they /should/ have reached many centuries ago but due to their conservative, narrow-minded views they never advanced where it mattered.

    Anyway, I'm tired and need sleep but I think I somehow got my point across.
