No problem! It was an easy fix! And the flavor text I added is just pure flavor. A bit of reasoning behind things. A few emotional responses. And that ole "locket of your daughter and wife" trope. I love you trope.

Yeah. Some sites I've been on were more elitist that I would like. I mean, I love the written word in easy, digestible bites, but I do not want to read someone's literary novel. We got RP to make! Yeah, Iwaku's RPs didn't last long unless you were in the few that lasted forever. I was in one REALLY long one, but the GM got banned. So, like a year was the max I made it. Also, the GM was banned for totally understandable reasons. But yeah. Iwaku has HARD cliques. VERY HARD. Which was weird, because I love all genres.

Anyway, thank you for giving me the chance. This RP is super interesting, and I love scifi RPs. Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fallout, and Elder Scrolls are the only fan Rps I love to join. But I do so with the fervor of a million suns. MILLION SUNS. So, like a universe ending event. That's cool.

My DnD group is hilarious. But sometimes so many things are happening that they ignore the puns. We did have a long conversation, once, but a character that had embedded her axes into a floating Grell. She was flying along with it. Yet, when she spoke about that, she always was like: "I'm IN the monster." Which led to a million jokes. Anyway, glad to see that my humor translates. Yas.

I LOVE the nickname. I made the nickname canon. "Red Dog" is on his armor. He doesn't know yet. And when he does... salt for days.

And, yeah, I totally understand creativity fatigue. Let your brain rest!
And thanks again.

PS: I found the wiki article that listed it. It's the Mass Effect Wiki, but not as prominent as the others. So, I'm NOT crazy. Also, I think it might be someone's opinions. >_>


Tropes are tropes for a reason. Just because something's common doesn't mean it can't be done convincingly. ;D

I will caution you I do like to occasionally bust out rather large posts/ collabs because I do quite get carried away when on a roll, but usually those big ones are collabs, so it's writing with 2-3 people and usually just flows oh-so-nice. And yeah, Iwaku was weird for me because stuff I'd try on that site had a hard time making it six months maximum, while here it's exceedingly hard to kill off games once they're established. Needless to say, it's easy to see what I prefer. People just need to know how much they can handle without being overwhelmed.

Plz don't heat death the universe. We got stuff to write. I'm actually running an Elder Scrolls RP right now in this very section! It's full, but keep your eye out periodically, it might have openings at some point.

And no need to thank me! I give everyone a fair shake. Honestly, I'd love to run a game with more than 10 extra players but I know from experience it's bloody murder trying to do that in a way that's meaningful to anyone unless it's a sandbox, which isn't my style. I try to make every character factor into the plot and be included, which gets super hard when you have games pulling in sixteen directions.

I got to pull my interest out, suffering a case of writer's block when it comes to trying to make a background story for my character, wish you all luck in this great roleplay though!


No worries bud! Sorry nothing shook loose for you, but thank you for trying and best of luck in your future games!

My character is nearly finished. I just got to do the appearance and personality. But, I was wondering if you guys have any time to look at what I have done? I just want to know if my background makes any sense.

Forgot that today's the deadline, I finished up my sheet. Hope that you guys like anyway.

Well, I felt the need for more drama. And I was like: "future locket with holo pictures of those he has lost/might have lost." Because I'm a garbage person.

Oh yeah. I love my long posts. No worries. I was just in an RP on Gaia that had a default of every post is 1200 words. And there were a lot of filler posts. Like it's one thing if it is a fun ride filled with things happening, or if someone was stretching to reach a minimum word count.

Yeah Iwaku had a lot of variety, but most things die quickly. I was in an RP that lasted about a year until the GM learned that her MC wasn't shipped with a certain character, and she killed it. Beyond that, most RPs died within a month. I understand the love of a staying power.

I totally understand wanting to make characters important. I do that in every DnD session I have. Even if it sticks or doesn't. XD Still trying to make one character's jar of mayo important, because it manages to show up every time. Every damn time. She tried to put a fire out with it last time.

Sorry this took so long. To be honest with you all, I finished it a while ago, but I haven't roleplayed in a while (one post in eight months?) and I haven't been able to shake the feeling I'm very noticeably rusty. But my deadline is in three hours so c'EST LA VIE.

Just twenty minutes until the deadline; sorry I'm new to these forums, and I've been working diligently to get this character done in time for this RP. I'm a giant fan of the ME series, and this seemed like an excellent place to get myself going RP wise. I hope you'll have me, and please excuse any poor grammar for the time being. I'm actively going through and adjusting that/making corrections as we speak.

Just checking.

So does this mean that even after doing the changes, I won't be accepted or?

It's always the crappy part when you have a player limit, you unfortunately have to pick and choose. D:

HOWEVER! Like Tricks said, if you're still interested in this when spots are opened up, we're going to keep a reserve roster and you guys will have first dibs on said spots!

I appreciate all the interest you put in, it's humbling!

Unfortunately, yes. The whole point of doing those reviews was to give an idea of what needed to be addressed, but we still only had limited spaces. As I may have mentioned before, I've tried RPs where I took in everyone who had sheets up to standards but it becomes a chaotic, bloated and stressful mess, and even the amount of players we're taking in this time around is only happening because I have 2 very solid coGMs to help manage it all.

As we have said the last couple of posts, if you're interested, we will keep a reserve so when an opening pops up, you and anyone else still interested will have first dibs!

It seems my life for good RPs lately have been to watch them on a waitlist. Frederick can wait... maybe not until the heat death of the universe, maybe until the Sun explodes but not much farther.

Wow, thanks for accepting my character. I have removed the two abilities that @DearTrickster suggested and replaced it with the energy drain, if it's alright. Also, I would like a discord link to the server whenever you guys get back on. Please and thanks!
