Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega



Polices | RP | Connect

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The Reapers are dead. We’ve won the war. The galaxy is safe again.

This is what victory looks like.

Half of humanity is dead. Earth and Thessia lie in ruins, and Palaven isn’t much better. The Citadel is a heap of scrap metal barely maintaining orbit. The geth collapsed when the Reapers did, and the krogans are breeding out of control. Commander Shepard is dead.

We’ve lost so much.

On Omega, it doesn’t matter. You lose only what you aren’t strong enough to hold or rich enough to buy, and there are entire worlds for sale. It’s a land of opportunity, where no one looks too hard at where you came from or what you lost -- or what you’ve gained.

It’s the perfect place to start over.

On Omega, merchants traffic in weaponry and drugs, delicacies and slaves and everything in between. Dancers and musicians and actors make a name for themselves in front of the hardest-to-please crowds in the galaxy. Refugees huddle in the depths of Fumi District, desperate for any job that will give them the credits to climb higher. Quiet groups of researchers explore technology and medicine of questionable legal and ethical status. A cell of displaced quarians and allies seek to right a great wrong. Mercenaries vie for power in the space left by the collapse of two of the most notorious organizations to roam the galaxy.

And everyone is careful to never, ever **** with Aria.

Opportunity is waiting; Alpha Phoenix is hiring.

Are you ready to join?

Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega is a MOO set in the Mass Effect universe after ME3 (with canon red destroy ending, tweaked a little). It takes place on Omega, and while it takes advantage of the diversity of that setting, the primary story focuses around an up and coming mercenary group called Alpha Phoenix.

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega

This is a really great theme for a mud.

The Mass Effect world has a great backstory.

Best of luck with this!

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega




Refugees are packed into the space station’s lower districts like sardines, and shortages make important imports like coffee obscenely expensive, but there’s always work to be done, and there’s always someone hiring.

For Alpha Phoenix, life is good. The new mercenary company survived its first scuffle with a rival and gained no small amount of notoriety when it delivered the turian head of Chimaera to Aria T’Loak herself. Recruitment is high and the jobs are rolling in - even if their last did end in a surprise encounter with a yahg. They’ve gained a ship, expanded their space, and are even building a clinic complete with quarian clean-room.

What could possibly go wrong?

Not everyone is pleased with Alpha Phoenix’s expanding power. There are other fledgling groups looking to make a name for themselves, and the fact that certain members of Alpha Phoenix seem inclined to stir up trouble with local slavers has fueled the fire of discontent. It doesn’t help that they’re run by a human - one of those upstart, greedy newcomers to the galactic stage who think they know everything.

They aren’t going to let Alpha Phoenix have Kenzo District - and Aria’s favor - without a fight. Nothing is ever that easy.

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega




The Reaper War united the galaxy. Nine months after its end, Omega has forgotten. The huddled masses of refugees crowd in with long-term residents, and new power struggles pop up every day.

They nearly ripped Kenzo District apart.

A clash between feuding mercenary groups left much of Kenzo in rubble and its residents wary. After more than a month of violence and rising anti-human sentiment, the settled dust has made it clear that the upstart human-led group Alpha Phoenix is now top dog in Kenzo.

As reward for its victory, Alpha Phoenix finds itself responsible for a district it doesn't have the funds or manpower to properly hold and heir to a host of grudges, debts, and bigotry. If the group can hold it together long enough to grow without ****ing off the wrong person, they might have a shot.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy. And the Alphas have their own concerns.

A former Cerberus operative runs from her past and finds herself dropped in the middle of all she thought she hated. Old lovers recently reunited reveal secrets that could change the course of their lives. A quarian risks upgraded implants seeking a freer life-- and an easier route to a project that could rock the galaxy. Alphas risk life and limb in the fighting pits at Droc's for a few extra credits. Morals clash as heroic tendencies meet the harsh realities of Omega's criminal underworld - and its power. The war has left its lingering touch on almost everyone.

And of course, there's that pesky problem of being on the STG's hit list.

The Alphas are desperate for new recruits. Are you ready to sign on?

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega



Happy N7 day!

No formal ad this time, but we've had a lot of fun stuff recently and have a host of things coming up.

Recently we:
  • Played guard for some ex-Cerberus tech (and some dead Reapers) on Aria's behalf and met a mystery salarian.
  • Got trampled by some dinosaurs in our quest to clear a rogue colony of dangerous wildlife for the colonists.
  • Had our mercenary company sold out from under us to a turian no one knows much about yet.
Coming up:
  • The batarian civil war between Unionist and Hegemony is starting to sneak into our territory, and some of our characters will have to come to terms with defending slavers.
  • Our new boss is letting us play pirate to gain a few credits.
  • We'll get tangled up with a few of the former Normandy crew on a mission to retrieve something of value.
  • Omega will feel some of the crunches of the post-war world.
AND MORE! There are lots of plots on the books! Come check us out.

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega



With the Reapers defeated, the galaxy is at peace, rebuilding and beginning to prosper again, with all species united by Shepard's efforts.

No, wait.

Life doesn't work like that.

With the first anniversary of the Reaper War drawing nearer, old tensions have reappeared and new ones are stirring up trouble in the Terminus Systems.

Even Omega, which escaped much of the war's wrath, is feeling the chill of political conflict - quite literally, since the Batarian Unionists' blockade means they're running low on fuel and any number of other things. Rogue colonies are springing up without Council approval, tensions are drawing tight about which species ought to be members, and it turns out that old grudges don't disappear easily.

For the mercenaries of Alpha Phoenix, getting by day to day is hard enough. A new owner is taking on jobs that send them further and further afield, with tasks that have started to touch on truly terrifying things. Rogue Spectre drop-outs; the Salarian STG; abandoned Cerberus research; the yahg. And of course, there's always Aria.

The Reapers may be dead, but the galaxy is still full of boogeymen.

Fortunately, someone's still paying to take them out. And Alpha Phoenix is happy to take their money.

I didn't look too deeply on the site but I did search for it and I didn't find anything showing permission from the IP holders (bioware?) about you guys being able to do a Mass Effect mud. Any word on this?

Sorry for the late reply. We don't have official permission from Bioware. It is our belief that most RP, including the RP that we do, is quite legal without it under fair use for a number of reasons, the most compelling of which is its transformative nature.

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega




It's been a year. A year since the Reapers fell, toppling over without explanation on Earth and Palaven and Thessia and a hundred other planets. A year since the Citadel was a heap of scrap metal circling Earth. A year since the krogan started having babies and the quarians took back Rannoch.

A year since Giorgio Ermete fled to Omega and founded a new mercenary company in the ruins of so many others.

Alpha Phoenix is a force now, the controlling interest in Kenzo District. The day to day may involve guarding elevators and playing bodyguard to those rich enough to afford them, but there are deeper things stirring the galaxy.

The second human Spectre has offered them good money for information on the rogue STG agent they caught stealing dangerous Cerberus research on Horizon. Their new boss keeps dropping increasingly interesting jobs in their laps. And one of their own disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving the curious and determined to follow his trail.

The rest of the galaxy may be rebuilding, but Omega never died.

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega


Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega is set in the Mass Effect universe a year after the end of the Reaper War. The Reapers were destroyed, and the galaxy is slowly rebuilding. A growing mercenary group called Alpha Phoenix finds itself ever-more-involved in galactic events beyond their home turf of Omega, leading many of them to wonder just what they've gotten themselves into.

Here's what we're like:


Roleplay-only gaming: our emphasis is on story and character, and all code supports those ends. We have no levels, no stats, and no classes, which means no grinding, saving, or earning XP to play the awesome character you imagine!

Stellar writing quality: no, really. We've got some amazing writers who create dynamic, fascinating characters through RP and other IC writing.

Diverse characters: the Mass Effect setting gives us a dozen playable species and over fifty combat powers - no two characters look alike! Sound daunting? No worries - play something familiar, like a human who shoots guns, or ask staff to walk you through a concept to end up with something that fits you!

Staff-run plot plot arcs combined with player-run plots: we have several ongoing story arcs that are starting to really pick up steam, including recurring villains and galactic mysteries. We also encourage players to fill in the downtime with adventures ranging from wild skycar chases on Illium to killing pirates on Invictus to dealing with a fuel shortage (and the subsequent cold) on the home turf of Omega. There's always something to RP about.

Tight setting, open world: we tie all our characters together through a common setting, but they exist in a wide-open galaxy, and we take full advantage of this! Plots can take us to space stations, secret labs, frozen planets or planets overtaken by vicious wildlife, the lights of the big city or the abandoned stretch of once-great ruins. It means that there's always an excuse to RP together - and never a chance of getting bored with where you are.

Small, but active and friendly community: there's almost always someone on to chat with, with RP happening through the day (though it's heaviest in the US evenings). RP is a constant, but we also like to chatter about the newest Marvel movie or what video games we're playing lately - and specific channels for each means you only get the chatter you're interested in!

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega


Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega is turning one - so it's totally time for a party! There's plenty of room in Afterlife.

Want to join? Here's the gist:

* We're an active, friendly community who loves to hang out and chat and tell excellent stories together.
* We love character-driven plot and plot that drives characters. We revel in a complicated, messy galaxy that resists easy black and white choices.
* We're set on Omega, a space station far beyond civilized space, and are focused around a group of mercenaries that's finding themselves embroiled in deeper things than they expected when they signed up.
* We tangle with yahgs, run errands for Spectres, and chase rogue STG agents across the galaxy. And this summer, things are going to get even bigger and messier.

Come play with us!

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega

We've just wrapped our first big story arc, which ran about nine months in the making, and it was glorious. Now we're settling in for a summer filled with player-run-plots and thinking about what comes next - it's a great time to hop on board!

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega


After months of dodging a rogue salarian agent and dealing with alien monsters most of the galaxy still thinks are only fairy tales, Alpha Phoenix has finally had some time to catch their breath. The mercenary group has been taking up jobs that actually fit their paygrade. Guarding boxes, settling fights, running security. It's all very...

Boring.

And unlikely to last, with this group. Tensions simmer under the surface. It turns out that several members have been secretly rebuilding AI - a task others think poses an unacceptable threat to both Alpha Phoenix and the galaxy at large. And word's starting to get around. Who knows what will happen when the boss gets his hands on this information - if he hasn't already.

It's a good thing Alpha Phoenix is starting to get used to tangling with things far beyond their realm of expertise.

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega


--------------------------------------------------------------------

It's been a tough year and a half for Alpha Phoenix. One of Omega's newest mercenary companies, they've seen combat well above their paygrade for months now. They've brushed elbows with Spectres, saved the Citadel from a newly-wakened VI, had Prothean tech invade their dreams, and found themselves missing months of memories after running a job for a Shadow Broker agent.

And they've been beaten and broken by yahg. We can't forget the yahg, who keep appearing even now that the Alphas have managed to kill the rogue STG agent who seemed to be attempting to learn to indoctrinate them. Now it looks like he was a part of something much larger, something known as SKY - and it looks like he was successful.

Now the Alphas are starting to question everything. If they're caught in a web of dangerous people and half-known truths, who's sitting at the center of it? And how does their taciturn boss, turian Verus Augur, fit in?

They're about to find out.

"It has suited my purposes to appear as an ordinary mercenary group," Verus says very mildly. "Indeed, it has suited both of your own purposes to appear as an ordinary mercenary group. Mercenaries are disposable. Mercenaries disappear."

Verus smiles, the pull of his mandibles wide with a brief flash of pointed teeth. He emerges from behind the desk in fluid strides of sartorial excellence, and comes around to the other side to lean against the front of his desk, boots angled wide as he settles himself with a particularly casual air against its edge.

"You are my stakes, and as you have been investigating SKY, you also know that the galaxy will suffer if I lose. Being mercenaries has guarded you from more than you know. It may have outlived some of its usefulness with respect to SKY. But the information you are asking for is not a door you can close, once opened. Are you sure you want it?"

Sound interesting? Stop by Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega today to join up. The galaxy's secrets are waiting.

Re: Mass Effect: Alpha & Omega


--------------------------------------------------------------------
It's been two years since the Reaper War ended. The galaxy has changed.

Omega, once the edge of uncivilized space, has become an economic powerhouse in the wake of the Reapers' destruction. Council space is slowly rebuilding. The volus have joined the Council, the krogan have gained a planet, and the Citadel is in ongoing repairs.

And there are AI in the galaxy again.

EDI and the geth are dead and gone, but in the two years since the war's end, others have appeared. One, Sai, even has many of EDI's memories. She and Jeff Moreau have become a public spectacle since they announced her creation and took off on a galactic public relations tour.

But what tolerance existed for an almost-war-hero has fractured since Sai made a public slip suggesting that she's not the only AI in the universe. She's been forced to call in a favor from Aria t'Loak, who has declared Omega a safe haven for Artificial Intelligences - so long as they behave themselves.

Now the few AI in the galaxy are flocking to Omega, and most of them are converging on Alpha Phoenix, the mercenary group that birthed this new strain of AI in a quarian programmer's quest to preserve some sort of legacy in honor of the fallen geth. They come seeking refuge, and a connection to those they consider the creators of their race. Most of Alpha Phoenix seems ready to welcome them with open arms.

As if finding themselves on the Shadow Broker's payroll hunting a secret organization intent on controlling and manipulating yagh for unknown purposes isn't complicated enough.
