Ok this is for both Shepards, are there any other sci-fi verses you'd like to visit for a little bit before returning back to your own verse?

Well, I suppose I can't speak for Shepard, but something tells me that one particular version would likely enjoy a certain setting known for it's goddamn green women.

As for myself? Well... I've always figured that I could take a Jedi. I mean, come on, twits, stop using goddamn lasers and find a real gun. Pin him down with supressing fire and have one of my mates go around and flank him. Can't block from two directions at once, now, can he?

Barring that, try a shotgun. You can't reflect goddamn matter, so the best he'd be able to do is block, and even then, his goddamn lightsaber wouldn't be thick enough to block all of the pellets. They don't use any armour, so one goddamn shot on the mark and you'd be home free.

Then I'd live in the goddamn mountain of credits I'd make for being the only bounty hunter to figure that out.

Zaeed Massani:

No, they can't. They CAN, however, leap over you and stab you in the back.
Also, shotguns didn't exist a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

I think it's safe to say that the Sheps have lost all interest in this thread.

I have to imagine that a jump like that would severely hinder their ability to keep blocking, and I'm not exactly a bad shot. Also, I figured I could take my own goddamn gear with me.

Another note: I don't care how fast your reflexes are or how well you can block; If I got a clean shot at you with a goddamn Cain, you and everything in a good 30-Meter radius would be fried.

I've got a better match-up, I think; Jedi vs Cerberus Phantom. I'm not entirely sure who'd win that one.

Fijiman:
I think it's safe to say that the Sheps have lost all interest in this thread.

No, it's just I have a lot of stuff to do.

That and it's summer. Have you seen Tali in a bikini?

I haven't either, but I aim to find out what she looks like.

Jailbird408:
How long do you think it's going to be until Tali'Zorah makes an account here?

When she wears that bikini I got her, damn it.

Zaeed Massani:
Gritty snip

Oh, hey Zaeed.

I was always wondering, do you get as many girls as Garrus, with how many scars you have?

What does Grunt think of that?

What does Grunt think of that?

I think he lost some respect for me after showing him that.

He just gave me one of those head shakes parents give their kids when they get arrested or something.

And frankly, even I think that's one of the freakiest goddamn things I've seen in my life.

And I'm the guy who saw the worst the galaxy has to offer.

Like Tali's face.

I'm kidding.

Maybe.

Speaking of Tali:


I have no idea why I'm doing this.

Renegade Shepard:
snip

Hey! I'm throwing my ex-fandom in your face here!

Renegade Shep, how do you feel about your portrayal in the following video?

Hi folks..sorry I've been away....I've been off negotiating certain things regarding the "true story" of what happened at the final assault on the citadel

Phenomenis:
To Parashep and Garrus:

How did the two of you avoid chafing? Did you remember to use Mordin's ointment? And, most importantly, did you Shepard, remember not to ingest?

that's private...I will however confirm that yes...the Rumours of Garuss's reach are in fact true

The Jakeinator:
Oh, you're back.

So tell me Shepard, what do you think about the Council?
And What is the most embarrassing moment you endured?
Worst injury?

1. they are.........shall we say misguided and leave it at that

2.I would say Mordins unsolicated advice regarding....*ahem* me and Garrus

3. being blown up in the biggest cosmic explosion known to the universe..probably

Renegade Shepard:

Renshep, hey there, I know we havn't spoken in a while..I'm sorry for not at least making contact...its just

WHERE DID YOU FIND THAT!!??

G Vakarian:
[snip.

hey Garrus.....do you have any Idea about this? (again, sorry for droping out of the loop like that)

Knife-28:
Renegade Shep, how do you feel about your portrayal in the following video?

that music...there's.. something really odd about it...like...it makes me want to cry...I..I....*sob*

I have to go

dalek sec:

sci fi universes?...I'm...not really aware..of

....uh..what are you exactaly?

Renegade Shepard:
Alright, here's this.

Matthew, your attempts to get my topic shut down ended with you getting a warning. Maybe it's high time you learn when that there's a fine line between voicing your opinion and being a guy who's as punchable as a nosy reporter.

Heronblade, thanks for being a voice of reason, but I can handle guys like this. Not the first time someone got all antsy about me being on The Escapist.

irmasterlol, it's usually Parashep's job to derail this topic, I'm going to have to ask for a resume of your derailing qualifications.

wow Renshep, you actually sound reasonable for once, I'm proud of you

but yes, its a shame to see this thread has attracted some.."controversy"

Fijiman:
Have you seen Parashep lately? Also, what is your crews current happiness level?

again, I apologise for not making contact.....as I said I've been out on a secret mission involving revealing what truly happned back on earth and the citadel

Fieldy409:
Hey Shepard. How come you never got promoted after saving the galaxy twice?

there was never time you know? it was one thing after the other

though If I do say so myself once this is all over I imagine there will be a promotion heading my way...and mabye a planet...a nice one

....

hey just because I'm Paragon doesn't mean I can't indulge?

Matthew94:
snip.

If it bothers you that much perhaps Renshep could get it moved there?

Frission:
Shepard(s), which of your crew members would in your opinion be the most capable of defeating you in a straight fight? What about if they had time to prepare?

Me?

Garrus..most definitely....

that charm is just too much for even commander shepard to handle

Socdemparty:
Some people care WAY too much about the status of this thread.

OT: You have a choice; fight the Reapers, or fight the political redtape and needless bureaucracy of the Council and other present institutions.

Which would you prefer and why?

lets just say I find the reapers are alot more pleasant to deal with

Renegade Shepard:

No, it's just I have a lot of stuff to do.

That and it's summer. Have you seen Tali in a bikini?

I havn't

however I have seen you in your speedos and....well

I have concern for the well being of others within a 100 mile radius

Jailbird408:


What does Grunt think of that?

d d d...did Cerberus do that?!

oh god....GRUNT!!! NOO!

Paragon Shepard:

G Vakarian:

hey Garrus.....do you have any Idea about this? (again, sorry for droping out of the loop like that)

Don't look at me, I have no recollection of who took that picture or how it happened. I'm starting to think that Renegade spiked my drink.

Thank you for the vote of confidence, although I'd like to think it would be more a matter of my skill than my rugged good looks.

Those abilities of theirs tend to nullify quite most conventional tactics. You'd have to outsmart them, not just outgun. An alert Jedi that knows what they're doing would be able to detonate a Cain round in your face. A Phantom wouldn't be able to hide, and their sword is quickly rendered useless. Multiple shotgun rounds might work, but I would first try something that keeps me away from that laser sword of theirs, and keep the shotgun on hand for plan B. That might just be me though.

There are a number of toxic gasses subtle enough that the force user probably wouldn't notice something was wrong until too late. Take carbon monoxide for instance. You humans seem to have a severe problem with it, but my people are barely effected. (due to the hemocyanin in our blood instead of hemoglobin) Flood the room, wait until the target is sluggish and slow to respond, and hit them with a couple of bursts using an Incisor from a distance. Having a biotic on hand to counter that weird telekinetic stuff they do would help.

Renegade Shepard:

Oh, hey Zaeed.

I was always wondering, do you get as many girls as Garrus, with how many scars you have?

Yeah, but they tend not to be what you'd call desirable. I'm pretty sure Jack was hitting on me once, but I get a little skeeved out at the thought of somebody who could crush my goddamn bones with a thought.

I'd still favour an automatic over a goddamn sniper rifle, I think. Jedi apparently possess limited precognition, so it's likely that they'd be able to block that first shot you made. With an automatic, though, they'd be forced to continue blocking and the chances of one of your shots making it through become a bit higher, I think. Also, as I said, if you could lay enough goddamn suppression on him to force him to stay out, you could have somebody else flank him.

As for gas... I'm pretty sure they tried that in one of the movies we don't talk about, and it didn't work. Would they be able to goddamn 'sense' an invisible gas, though? Not sure.

That's why I would pick the Incisor. In spite of the odds, they may still be coherent enough to block individual shots, but three rounds arriving within a few milliseconds of each other is likely another story. My understanding was that they can hold their breath for ridiculous periods of time, and a few individuals can even neutralize toxins, but for both cases they have to be aware of it.

Fijiman:
What is the coolest thing you have seen in the last week or so?

I was going to say something about Noveria until I remembered that I hate goddamn smart-asses.

I've seen a lot of shit, but for the past week I've been doing nothing but wandering around the goddamn citadel trying to find some Salarian who refused to pay his gambling debts.

Although, the other day, I did see an Elcor trip. That was... interesting.

So, with Garrus and his reach certainly up to standard, do you think you were able to rise to the occasion with your flexibility?

And Garrus, did you remember to savour the last shot before you popped the heat sink? Or did it all go somewhere horrible?

You don't have to answer that one commander.

If you don't mind, I'm going to go track down whoever passed on our private conversations and make them wish they'd only been caught by the Reapers.

That has got to be holding off the combined efforts of those gangs on Omega for several days. I achieved a kill count via that single event that most professional soldiers couldn't touch throughout a lifelong career.

Shepard, Garrus, Zaeed or whoever, what is your proudest career moment?

Ah, that takes me back...

I got hired to recover a black box from a downed recon craft that crashed almost next door to a goddamn Batarian military base. Alliance couldn't send its' own men in, as they had to maintain deniability or else they'd probably end up at war. They were paying more than I'd ever gotten on a job before at that point, so I rounded up all of my Blue Suns and took the offer. This wasn't long after I'd started the group, though and I didn't have many takers yet, so I hired a little outside help from the goddamn Blood Pack as well.

My plan was to hijack some Batarian shuttles from a space station orbiting the planet and fly them into the base... literally. We set four of them on course to crash them into their comm tower and the three AA guns protecting the place, and then land our own shuttles with much less resistance. There was no way I was going to use my own men as goddamn kamakazies, so I gave that job to the blood pack. The warlord I hired similarly passed the buck onto the four unlucky Vorcha who happened to be closest at the time; he left with the after picking them, but I did hear him assuring one of the that shuttles had airbags.

Anyway, that particular part of the plan went even better than expected, as one of the AA guns was positioned over their goddamn armoury, which was also destroyed. The Batarians had their rifles, but their heavy weapons were gone, so there was nothing they could do as we landed. Where the plan started falling apart was when the goddamn Blood Pack Warlord and his men broke ranks and charged straight for the command center. Our right flank was effectively gone, and we were about to be flanked in a direction that was completely open (that is to say, against which we had no cover). Without really thinking, I charged the right myself, took up position against a door, started shooting, and for what seemed like an hour, never stopped. (This was awhile ago, before the invention of the goddamn Thermal Clip. I'd modded my rifle to absorb heat so well that it could fire for up to 45 seconds at a time (Yes, I timed it)).

I must've killed about 35 Batarians in the space of about 5 minutes. These weren't goddamn thugs, either; actual soldiers. I was running and gunning so fast that when the last four of the surrendered, I accidentally killed two more before I realized what was happening. With their flank secure, my Suns had outfought the rest of the garrison, and we were just securing the last of the smaller buildings when that goddamn warlord kicked the door down from inside. He told me that he was taking the black box and selling it to the Alliance himself, and that we should turn around and leave unless we "want[ed] to see krogan blood rage fro the receiving end".

After achieving personally what I had specifically brought the goddamn Blood Pack to do in the first place, I'd had enough of their shit, so I started shooting. Ten Krogan and about forty Vorcha had survived against the Batarians, and by now (breaking ranks had cost them rather dearly), had regenerated enough so as to be considered fresh. My men had sustained heavy casualties as well, and they were spread out, having just secured the base. In range of the Blood Pack was me and 8 of my mates. I was so angry at that smug Krogan warlord that I almost felt like I was in a little blood rage of my own, though I do remember dodging out of the way when he charged me, and when he stopped and turned around, I lunged forward and knifed him in the throat. One of the most satisfying moments of my career, that. Anyway, at that point, all but two of the krogan were dead (or bleeding out) and the Vorcha seemed content to sit in the command center and shoot out the windows, so I grabbed the black box off of the warlord and put a bullet in his eye for good measure before calling the shuttle pilots for an evac. On our way out, we stopped for a minutes in orbit while I detonated the explosives we had set in preparation to 'clean up' and avoid leaving evidence. That base burned like it was made of paper.

I made it out with about a third of my men still alive, but against all odds, we successfully took on the Batarian military and outfought the Blood Pack on the same day. My men got payed more than four times what I had originally promised seeing as how there were fewer left to pay and I no longer had to pay the Blood Pack.

As for the single proudest moment, though? That'd be when I went back to Earth to get some new recruits and I saw the line outside the office. The Blue Suns became one of the most respected mercenary forces in Alliance space in about a week. It wasn't long before that spread to Turian space as well.

Ah... Well, that was quite a lot to say, wasn't it? Probably talked your ear off by now. Ah, well. I'm old now, I can get away with it.
