    Ah yes, and the archives. Luckily we're just starting out and I'm not the world's best questmaster so not much plot as happened. Mostly introduction and this is the first session with the homebrewed system. Let's see how it goes. I'm basing most actions on opposing D100 rolls.

    You're awoken after your short nap by a page from XO Ambrose on the Jakarta's bridge. It seems that the time has come for your debriefing. You are to report to the briefing room on deck 3. It's located behind the Jakarta's CIC.
    You're expected to report in the next 20 minutes, it should only take 5 to get there.

    You find Karrigan in her quarters, already hard at work on the tech recovered from the field.
    "Oh! Hey Geronimo! Dude you gotta check this tech out, it's like nothing I've ever seen!"
    You walk over and she loads up a diagnostic on her Omni-tool, a tiny projected image appears.
    2 shields appear to be surrounding the user.
    "Ok so look the left is our shields, and the Geth shield is on the right."
    Your shield looks completely normal while the Geth shield seems to be fluctuating, seemingly spinning. Both shields are hit from a burst of small arms fire from off-screen. The Alliance shield pops and the armor underneath is dented while the Geth shields seems to knock the bullets away and the remain although appear thinner than before.
    "The Geth shield seems to knock away the bullets rather than just allowing them to impact, it's genius, but I don't understand how they manage to get the field to oscillate like that. I'll need more time to figure it out...or do you think I should turn this over to the Alliance, this tech is incredible and could really help us out in the field. But it's extremely valuable, I'd hazard to say we could revolutionize armor with this tech."

    We're doing later, I had to nerf charge hard, Vanguard or not it was letting you guys breeze through encounters, I need to get you guys more bogged down and thinking tactically. Using cover, strategic powers, more gun-play (which is why they got nuked pretty good) etc. Something to bring challenge and livelyhood to the combat.
    You will start seeing major improvements soon and yes, I am very interested in your input.

    Depends on how you decide to roleplay it, nothing is set in stone. There is no right choice, only a different choice. You could always sell trade rights to the Alliance for a tidy-profit and do both. Free-form is free-form. That's the last tip you get from me though.

    "Hmmm, well I guess you're right, no promises on the not blowing you up part though. If I need a guinea pig and you're it." Karrigan beams at you then quickly shuts out the world and delves deeper into the device with a renewed vigor.
    You doubt you'll get much more out of her while she's got that thing.
    You have a few minutes left.

    The Jakarta has a crew of 300 not counting the Marines on board the vessel. Anyone in particular? You only know a handful of them on a personal basis, the rest are either acquaintances or total strangers.

    Isn't that kind of the point of Charge? When I recommended Rennick in the first place, I'd counted on the fact that Charge regenerated the shields--thus, the "nigh invulnerability" that he got as a result that made him such an effective infantry buster.

    Though, that's just me. You could always go the ME3 route and let the Charge refill more shields as we get better at it. No reason it HAS to fully recharge shields at level 1.

    Alright then!

    You find Brigg's quarters with ease, looks like he's bunking with Harris as they're both relaxing and knocking back a few beers. They seem to be watching something on Harris's omni-tool.

    This is the first time you'd had a chance to look the two of them over, once you're in armor most people are pretty hard to tell apart. Harris is an older guy who seems like he's seen a lot, there is some wear and tear on his face, his features droop a little but you can practically sense the biotic potential that oozes from the guy. His eyes are still fierce even dulled by the alcohol.

    Briggs is a bear of a man, a short black mowhawk runs on his head, and he has a look that could scare an alpha varren away from a meal by sheer intimidation alone.
    He has his share of scars as most vanguards do but the man has an intensity that is scarcely found anywhere, even in the military in this day and age.

    "Hey kid, grab a beer, we're just watching the highlight reel!"
    You recognize Brigg's charge on the Geth and his splitting of the giant Geth in half with a Nova.
    "SHIT NOW THAT IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! WHO NEEDS ACTION HEROES, I AM ONE MOTHERFUCKER!" Briggs yells before he shotguns another beer.
    Harris can only shake his head and take another sip.
    "So, what's going on kid? You look like a man on a mission." Briggs sputters out looking you over.

    "I have a debriefing in a few minutes, I can't stay too long but if you guys want I'll be happy to grab a few beers later." you tell him.

    "Ah, heard about that, well Commander Sardis was looking forward to talking with you, my debrief went ok with the exception of Rodriguez, he was still ultimately my responsibility even if he was temporarily under Haskill's command. Reckless to change line-up in the middle of battle, yada yada. I just pointed out without you may have all bit it to those husks and that seemed to justify me. After all losing one man is better than a squad or two. Math of loss you know? Damn shame about Rodriguez though, We're gonna drink later in his honor too if Wendigo would like to join us." Briggs looks at you expecting a commitment

    "We just might, I didn't know him well but he seemed like a good guy." You reply

    "That he was..." Harris adds

    "Oh, and Briggs, would you mind giving me a few pointers on my Biotic techniques? You seem like you've had quite a bit of experience and Biotic trainers are hard to find in the Alliance military."

    "PSH...Get a load of this guy? He kicks a fucking tank to death and he wants lessons from me? Eh what the hell, your nova and charge are still pretty rough but I'll tell you what, ask again when I'm sober and I don't have to worry about you charging a hole in the hull and I'd be happy to show you a thing or two." Briggs replies happily.

    "Hey check this out" Harris waves you over and you see Geth tank explode as you walk away.
    "I gotta admit, that was pretty badass, I was worried if my barriers could take a hit from that thing but you solved that problem." Harris gives you curt nod and resumes drinking.

    It's about that time, you decide to bid them farewell till later and head to the briefing.

    >Choo, Choo, all aboard the plot train. This railroad has no additional stops between it and the station.

    You make it to Deck 3 and the briefing room just in time.

    You open the door and walk into the breifing room to see Commander Sardis and Captain Nguyen, the Jakarta's CO, sitting at the briefing room table. You snap to attention, "Corporal Rennick, reporting as requested sir!" you state as your eyes wonder the room. You can see combat footage from the battle on Eden Prime. Some of this footage looks familar and on the largest screen is you charging the Geth armor on the hill, the ensuing explosion, you destroying the mutated humans with a Nova strike and you performing life saving operations on the red-headed woman playing in a loop.
    You eyes flick back to the command staff.

    "At ease son, you may have a seat." Commander Sardis finally acknowledging your presense.

    "So, a lot bears explaining, mostly how none of this footage seems to be doctored B-movie garbage.", a small smile flicks across Captain Nguyen's face as Commander Sardis says it, "I guess we'll start with the initial landing. You took on Geth Armor single-handedly and managed to not only cripple it but to wipe out an entire Geth squad solo. That's a hell of an achievement son. I want to know what possessed you to try and charge a fortified Geth position by yourself.

    "Wisdom is known by her children, Sir, In that situation the only other choice was to allow the armor to fire on the squad which would have decimated our forces. Even if I only bought them enough time to make it to cover the risk was outweighed by the reward.
    That and, it seemed like a reasonable choice at the time sir." you reply.

    Captain Nguyen can only look to Commander Sardis with a cocked eyebrow.
    "Technically you are correct in the assessment and went above and beyond the call of duty with your decision to put your life on the line for your squad. They may not have realized it but the trajectory from the footage may have wiped out most of the unit." Commander Sardis admits.

    "The implications of what you found underground were only confirmed across the rest of the world, we dealt with hundreds of those beserker type units made from our dead. We've taken to the designation Husks for them and Dragon's Teeth for the spikes. You were one of the only units to see this in process in action and the only to actually pull someone off it before they were changed completely.", Captain Nguyen informs you, "My question is why did you put such risk in saving that woman when you didn't know the implications of what was occurring?"

    How about a compromise, Charge wasn't thought of till ME2. Bioware realized they needed a way for Vanguards who are Shotgun and SMG users to get close. Nova was ME3 as the Vanguard needed to do something for multiple enemies.

    Let's say that L2 were capable of doing the charge and nova. However it'll be weaker overall as the amp wasn't designed for that in mind.

    This would please the Illusive Man to "nerf things" in order to "make it more interesting" in his words. L3 your able to do it a bit stronger but on the upside surgery to replace an L3 is a lot less riskier. L4 was prototype for L5 which allows stuff like the Biotic Gernades and full potential of Charge, Nova, and a Biotic Punch which hits for as much N as your charge but takes a lot out of ya.

    You feel the response will be positive, it's the opportunity of a lifetime.
    Completing the program would pretty much guarantee you could handpick your squad.

    My plan was actually to have Geronimo head off on the training and maybe us go back and forth between Karrigan and Briggs for a session to help flesh out their characters and the supporting casts stories.

    Maybe a couple of "encounters" during the ICT Program but nothing plot relevant. Just mostly to see how you're taking to the training.

    Give us a break from Geronimo and focus on something other than our Biotic freight train.
    That way when he comes back he's taken a level in badass, we can maybe toss a couple ranks in, and continue the plot from there.

    Could we also focus on the woman we saved? Maybe even if she wasnt fully turned, she could be able to sense synthetics, and husks and stuff.

    We should be omnisexual, Asari? Yes please! Briggs? Why not? Krogan? Only of you're drunk.

    Team is good, but leaving them behind to train to be a better officer and soldier is what we got to do.

    Leaving old mates behind is tough, but it's chance to wear an N7 badge.

    We should go with neither, if situation warrants being an ass then be an ass. If it's not taking the hard route, don't take it just because some moral judgement

    Thinking we should go Earth Born, War Hero.

    That's totally not in character. You've just been accepted into N7 training. You're a career military personal, besides of you go rogue you'd be label an traitor to the Alliance. Might even be "connected" to Cererbus.

    Prefer Kerrigan... Name has awesome associations, plus engineers are awesome. and double manguard has potential for biotic charge glut, especially for size six squad

    backstory... something non-Shep. Paragon/Renegade? I like

    Could we get a varren pet or a biotic pyjak? (In me2 there was a planet that had eezo dumped all over it and the animal life gained biotics. Imagine a biotic varren or a biotic thresher maw)

    The Alliance has the Corsair and it could be possible to become a Spectre. I'm throwing a little bit of the ETA out the window. With this being 2183 the Reapers are set to arrive in a little over 2 years. However I have a spanner in the works to delay them by a couple more years, namely them starting out a little further in Dark Space, they will await our character development those bastards. I'm interested in this timeline because it's the one I know best as well and the universe doesn't specify what kind of tech was there even the year before ME1. So I'd rather homebrew newer tech and than older tech.

    I've been playing only 5 years. I've been DM'ing 3 years sporadically.
    My style is mostly free-form, I hate getting bogged down with stressful writing and rail-roading.

    I'm like the Mitch Hedburg joke.
    I think Pringles original intention was to make Tennis balls, but on the day the rubber was due to arrive they delivered a truck of potatoes instead. But Pringles is a laid back company, they said "FUCK IT, CUT EM UP!"
    I am Pringles.

    Improv is a very powerful skill to have.

    Thats how I started. Then added clerical skills on top. I definitely still recommend preparations.

    Anyways, queing up. GLHF with the rest of the thread.

    I was just hoping you guys could write your own backstory for Geronimo. I'm assuming he's Native American. Geronimo was an Apache. That also likely makes him earthborn, possibly on a reservation.

    Focus of the backstory could be what made him want to go into space? Did he have family in the Alliance? Did that make him wish to serve his country? Maybe his ancestor was a Windtalker during WWII and his family has served it's country/planet ever since.

    You guys tell me. Something else to discuss. I'll roll with Karrigan and Briggs but Geronimo is all your guy.

    I prepare the plot train parts. I also prepare some conversations and future plot hooks. Other than that there's no telling what a player may do. They're not planning, why should I? Now if Light Yagami played DnD...

    I say we give Geronimo, a fear of yenaldooshis.

    Anyone read Dresden Files? That kind of skinwalker.

    Third my high school was Apache. Rougher version of Navajos (same language, actually same tribe that split in half, Apaches walked a bit further than Navajos). If we're gonna be Apache more than in name, I hope they've cured diabetes and alcohol-caused liver failure. 'cause it looks like we drink.

    sexuality?* not too sure where we're going with it, assuming he's straight for now

    attached to squad on personal level? *definitely

    paragon or renegade? *paragon at first but if they piss us off hard or harm someone we care for then go full on renegade, TL;DR i guess paragade

    Are we willing to go into the N7 program and Charge where no Vanguard has charged before, even if means no more old friends? *sure why not

    What is our backstory? *personally i want him to have the colonist and to have participated in the Raid on Torfan without being called the Butcher
    >> The Warlock in Yellow 05/06/12(Sun)02:11 No.18996235
    Backstory everyone in the future is mixed. "Pure" this and that are rare. So Geranimo should just be a nick name really, he's be like bunch of Native groups and probably some white in him. Growing up in the reservation sprawl, his parents were probably exposed to some E-Zero while on vacation.

    Most common diseases have been cured, or at least treatable. Salarians probably helped out a lot, and we probably invented Medigel after cross species study.

    1. In a I can learn a lot from this man way yes, sexually I'm edging towards straight.

    2. Yes, you trust your team with your life, you are going to be attached to them.

    3. Hell yes.

    4. Paragon, but willing to do the less than pristine stuff if absolutely necessary.

    5. Earth born, native american though he would have trouble giving you the exact percentage of which tribes and how much is native american vs not. Came from a military family, it was pretty expected for him to join up. Was given his ancestral Tomahawk by his father when he graduated academy. War Hero, was given the name Geronimo due to some absolutely insane charge he made that got a unit out of heavy fire and saved their collective asses.

    Just a quick question. Do we have much of an appearance set up for Rennick? Originally I envisioned him looking something like this, but uh, with the decisions we've made I dunno if it really works anymore.
    >> Dowjin !!9I4SJG4jQPb 05/06/12(Sun)03:17 No.18996698

    >ancestral tomahawk
    >made of plasteel


    1) We are straight, but cultivate a bromance with Briggs.
    2) Team Wendigo for life, blood in blood out
    3) We can take a break from Wendigo to N7, but we will return.
    4) 85% Paragon Score
    5) Earth Born, Native American (the "story" is that we're Apache), War Hero

    Sure the haft has been replaced about 30 times and the head kept on breaking over the years so we replaced it with high impact plasteel. But it's still your great great grandfather's axe.

    Sure no original part of it is related to the first one, but there is an unbroken line of connection between them, the whole axe has never been replaced at one time so you could consider it the same axe from a certain point of view.

    apache tomahawk... still, for sake of fun, why not. finding/eating mule meat would be more difficult to accomplish, i guess. i will royally spaz if scalping because apache tho'
