Welcome to the femshep role play chat, a role playing community (aka gathering of online friends) who continue the adventures of Commander Shepard in various incarnations. The events of the RP take place roughly ten years after the Reaper war in Mass Effect 3. We take a non canonical approach to our storylines, a Mass Effect AU including characters developed from other franchises as well as original characters. We’d love to have you come join us and our main group typically meets between the hours of 10:00 PM EST and 2:30 PM EST (2:00 GMT – 6:30 AM GMT). We have three main room, femshep Roleplay, femshep RP2 and femshep RP3. You may also want to stop by femshep.com and chat w/ some of us before hand. Come by there any time! Hope to see you there.

Femshep RP Chat is a freeform style of roleplaying in which almost anything goes. Therefore we don’t have any rules as such, but we do adhere to a few guidelines to ensure everyone has fun.

1. We use Chatzy to roleplay, a java based chat system. This can give certain browers a fit.
2. If you want to speak to the group out of character, (OOC), simply use parenthesis. (What happen’s next?)
3. If you want to use an action, use an asterix. *Shepard shoots at the Merc*
4. Your character, Shepard or otherwise, is yours. Do with them as you please, but be mindful of other player’s characters.
5. Autohit applies only to NPC characters. (generic characters such as “mercs” or “guards” count a NPCs). Rarely do character fight w/ one another, so this is not that big a problem.
6. Use GodeMode sparingly and only if it has been established. (A character from a synthesis galaxy may heal quicker than normal or a character may have a large number of forces at their disposal).
7. Be flexible. If you have a story in mind, run w/ it, but be mindful of how other player’s characters may impact the story. If you are ever in any doubt, simply PM the other players or run it past them in chat.
8. Don’t meta game. Just because you know something doesn’t mean your character does.
9. Have fun!
