To al you wondering what this chucklefuck is talking about.

He'srefering to a fic called "The mission stays the same" written by some ukrainian guy.

It about a guardsman and an eldar farseer being transported into the mass effect universe by warp shenanigans.

Its pretty well written and the story has some interresting wits, including a huge armsrace starting because of the guardsmans lasgun and plasma pistol roflstumping everything.

Anon Mass Effect Guns have virtually unlimited ammunition and fires at speeds measured in fractions of the speed of light.
The strongest man portable weapon in the game lorewise just fires a slightly larger projectile. (NVM gameplay which ignores all of that after the first game)

small arms are not near that strong.

as for why lasguns being 'strong' its because it's an energy weapon, which are not stopped by kinetic barriers (can't remember if they are blocked by biotic barriers or not) and in story no one uses cover as one might expect since they can pop out safely and rely on their shields to take a few shots. it's also a hotshot las gun if i remember

anon, the powersword is so far up there it would take decades to figure out. the plasma pistol is only a little bit behind it. Mordin can recreate the gas mixture, but he couldn't figure out how the gun actually worked.

the lasgun is so wonderful because it is so simple for the mechanicus to produce en-masse since the tech is relatively low to make. and it directly scales with how much power you put in and how big you make the gun.

las tech is so versatile and easy to figure out that it makes it so much more valuable to the Alliance

>>51778467
>Lasers are not blocked by the kinetic barriers of capital ships (bar the ones employed by the Reapers, whose barriers are capable of blocking them to an extent). However, the range of lasers limits their use to rare 'knife fight'-range ship-to-ship combat.

I thinkthat at this point in the story, the alliance should just do a good old style military coup on earths goverment. They know the reapers are real, the farseer made sure of that, and they have the means to do so (lasguns).

Flakk armour in 40k is made to heat resistant, with ceramite and all that.

Non-ignorable portions of the combatants in ME decide that Barriers are all they need for defense and dress like a stripper underneath that.

I have two rules about this shit in my game.
1) as long as you don't start getting autistic, stupid, or creepy (I don't give a fuck that your character 'totally would rape that captured female bandit' or would 'totally stab the queen because you think that'll somehow make you the king'. keep that shit out of my game because I run lighthearted fantasy games not grimderp Game of Thrones shit)
2) don't disrupt the plot. I told you when you joined what the game was going to be like and made it a condition upon joining that you would all more-or-less go along with what I had written. You agreed, You had more than enough oppurtunity to back out and plenty of forewarning. If you decide five sessions in to abandon the plot because "it's what my character would do!" Then I take that as you going back on your word and you can fuck off.

there should be some leeway there. the plot shouldn't be 100% static, it should be allowed to breathe and grow, within limits of course. if you can't adapt and keep everyone at least wanting to do what you have written, than you should know your players better. ya gotta balance between the two.

That's the essence of roleplaying mate. If I play a violent sociopath, then I do violent sociopath actions. It doesn't mean I'm a violent sociopath in real life, only that I play one.

Often, to signify that I don't condone raping little girls or burning orphanages or whatev, the sentence 'it's what my character want to do, not what I want to do in that situation' appears in play. Perfectly normal, perfectly usual, perfectly healthy roleplaying.

My warlock sold his soul because he was terrified of dying. He regrets the decision because of the things he has to do now. He lied to the party for the longest time and said he was a sorcerer. When they found out he was lying he was very adamant on how he's trying to redeem himself

Way I've seen it solved in the past is 'your soul, your problem'. But that's on the Paladin to RP, so probably not what you're looking for.

Honestly I'd just go with anything but a fiend as a patron (fey and outsiders aren't inherently evil and there's no laws in most settings about making deals with them) or for a non-soul selling deal with the devil.

If I ever get the chance to play a warlock I'm probably going to go with 'ancient religious order who guard a number of powerful devil/demon trapped in crowns/amulets/swords/whatevers'. They study for years to be able to harness the trapped monsters power which they use to defend the items and do good deeds using the power, which makes the trapped fiend weaker and keeps it from escaping.

No, not even close. The Mass Effect power level is absolute weak sauce. Hell, Halo humanity could take the Citadel council and probably the Reapers as well.

Well yeah obviously assume this is like the very beginning before there was the the whole thing with the "coalition of worlds spanning the galaxy". In ME the plot is what 20? 50? years after humanity figures out FTL.

Concept:
>The whole Old ones VS C'tan thing happens but instead of Necrons the C'tan create the Reapers.
>The Eldar try find a better way of travel and create a proto-webway
>The first cycle happens and the eldar are killed off before they can finish the concept.
>The reapers find and assimilate the tech turning it into the Relays that we see in game.
> The cycles keep happening and the reapers keep purging.

That only leaves the problem of what happens to the C'tan.

Right that can even work into the motivation of the reapers to harvest organics.
I don't remember it all to well but it was something along the lines of "Kill'em b4 they make synths"(? correct me if I'm wrong ). Which is kinda silly because the Geth are a thing. So except a tech suppression purge the harvesting could actually be needed to keep the C'tan locked up somewhere?

Maybe, but i agree more with the previous anon that the reapers want to stop chaos, and keep the warp calm. Wich is why they purge sentient life at regular intervals.

Well whether or not rape is morally more or less acceptable than murder doesn't really matter, it is whether or not it will be disruptive.

Secondly nobody said that murder was accepted at that table. Killing bandits in a skirmish is usually going to come under one of the following: self defense, police action, or military action. There are plenty of situations where society deems ending a life to be a justified killing and the word "murder" is an incorrect term to describe those sorts of killings.

>don't disrupt the plot.
Its the PCs entire job to disrupt the plot...

Surely a good DM can handle whatever the players throw at him and a little freedom wont "disrupt" his precious plot. The DM is in complete control at all times, if a guard steps in just before someone stabs the queen, no one can argue with that. PCs can still have complete freedom without disrupting the plot if you're a good enough DM

Deciding to spend a session or two chasing up a loose end is not "disrupting" in my eyes, nor is trying to find work around or alternative solutions to problems presented. "Disrupting" would be "the GM has explicitly told us to go north to continue the plot. I want to go south and abandon the plot entirely with no intention of ever coming back to it because it's what my character would do"

>> No.51799978

>>51799621
I think they know. Their C'tan masters also despised the warp.

I think the reapers want to stop chaos from growing in power, which is why they purge inteligent life. Because inteligence creates enteties in the warp.

Why they dont just kill all life is still a mystery, but it still makes more sence than the canon reason.

then play a better character.

seriously just talk to your players about what content you are and are not prepared to have in the game at character gen.

If I told you right at the beginning that this is a good campaign and all characters should be somewhere from righteous and selfless down to
basically a good person but probably not willing to go to serious risk for strangers then I don't want to see you burning down an orphanage two sessions in. I told you no evil characters so if that is "what your character would do" then roll up a new one because you aren't playing that anymore.

If I said this would be a cooperative campaign without PVP and you should at least be on good terms with the other characters if not actually friends, then I do not want to hear from you that what your character would do right now is take a shot at one of your team mates when they are distracted, or rob the party while they sleep.

It goes both ways. If I say from the outset that this is an evil campaign I better not have your self righteous paladin delivering an ultimatum to the other PC's to repent or be destroyed the first time one of them does something shady.
