    Re: (Interest) Some game ideas I've been considering

    Yeah, I mean, I'm okay with handling even a no-PL setup, mostly because I have a certain amount of trust in players not to build obviously broken stuff. And obviously, I reserve the right to veto something, even after gameplay has begun, if it ends up being problematic. But I don't believe anyone here would intentionally try to break the system to create a POKE character.

If the Shepard you're using is Paragon, does that mean the genophage was cured and the quarians and geth made peace?

    (Sorry if these are spoilers for those who haven't played ME3... but it is more than six years old.)
    Happy Ending Mod? Oooh, I need to see that! can ya tell me more about it? I just finished ME2 not long ago, and I want to start modding ME3 for the ultimate playthrough.

    Yes, I would assume my playthrough as "canon," with slight changes to the ending. My playthrough, being largely Paragon (save for headbutting a Krogan or two), saw the genophage cured, quarians and geth made peace (and the geth have true individuality thanks to Legion's sacrifice), everyone survived the Collectors, etc. I also change the ending such that the Crucible only destroyed the Reapers, and go from there.

    Yeah, it's pretty explicitly a setting that allows for some weird stuff. "Sufficiently advanced" technology, full-on psionic powers (I mean, no amount of gravity manipulation can explain certain things like Sovereign's ability to corrupt minds, or the asari ability to meld minds the way they do), things like that.

    A lot of it would be on the ground, sure, but vehicular combat and action scenes would be a fun part of it.

Escorting convoys to and from the one decent town in the wasteland until she met someone from the new Overwatch that recruited her to do good on a larger scale.
    That'd be a pretty cool character, I think!

    Good to know. An ace pilot type is on my mind, among several options. Joker usually stays in the ship and likes it though. Another notion is an action archaeologist. The competition for Prothean artifacts is fierce... one would have to be able to handle themselves, and handle bandits, mercs, wild alien beasts and more.

    You can find the Happy Ending Mod here: https://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect3/mods/66

    I haven't played it myself, but I've watched videos of what it changes. As it's described, "MEHEM is a reinterpretation of the endings of Mass Effect 3, which introduces quite a few changes to the game's finale and - as the title suggests - will result in a brighter outcome for Commander Shepard (if your forces are strong enough)."

    Both would work. I'm certainly down with powered armors, ships, smaller vehicles (Mako and the like) being a common factor. "Action archaeologist" is generally what I like to play, as well. It'd make it easy to introduce a rival for your character.

    Cool! Thanks. I'm gonna have to download that one. ME3 was pretty good all the way up until the ending. And I have been wanting to really make this the ultimate version when I play through it.

    So I downloaded ME2 Demo from Steam and played a bit of it. (I'm old and FPS games suck as I can't aim with the mouse.) It makes the concepts like biotics make much more sense. Could be a cool game.
