Creating a Character , this section will contain ( hopefully ) all a new player needs to create a new Mass Effect character including character Ideas, guidelines, playable species, starting gear suggestions, etc.
Legal Disclaimer section includes the jargon needed to keep my pants from being sued off.It has become clear that the IP owners have no interest in an official pen and paper rpg. After searching the web, I found no set of conversion rules really captured the “feel” of mass effect while maintaing a core that was both playable and fun.
I chose shadowrun as a proven system that handles ranged combat quite well and 4th edition specifically because my 1rst, 2nd and 3rd ed rule books are so worn out that they will not survive another campaign!
I’ve busted my hump reviewing nearly every rule and piece of equipment in SR4 deciding what is kept, what is changed and what is thrown away. The rules have been tested once, but feel free to give constructive criticism.
