    <data>Commander Shepard. This one is pleased to bear greetings from the Illuminated Primacy.


    <id>675844
    <position>38796
    <data>Yes. This one is an ambassador honored with a message.


    <id>675845
    <position>38797
    <data>The Primacy? The hanar government?


    <id>681153
    <position>39855
    <data>Hanar worlds have been attacked by the Reapers. We have heard you are gathering allies to halt their advance.



    <id>681167
    <position>39869
    <data>You need me to fly out to your home planet in exchange for hanar help?



    <id>681154
    <position>39856
    <data>That is unnecessary. This one has briefed our allies, the drell, on the gravity of this situation.


    <id>681155
    <position>39857
    <data>Their soldiers are prepared to come to your assistance in battle.



    <id>681170
    <position>39872
    <data>I'm not familiar with the drell. What're their fighting strengths?



    <id>681158
    <position>39860
    <data>They server as peacekeepers on Khaje. The hanar provide training for drell who wish to take up arms.



    <id>681172
    <position>39874
    <data>What do these drell soldiers specialize in?



    <id>681159
    <position>39861
    <data>They are raised to be self-sufficient agents. Their efficiency often surprises their opponents.


    <id>681160
    <position>39862
    <data>In this one's small opinion, the drell we have sent are among their finest fighters. We hope for them to serve you well.



    <id>681178
    <position>39880
    <data>Not many people, let alone an entire species, just gives up soldiers at a time like this.



    <id>681161
    <position>39863
    <data>The Illuminated Primacy holds similar thoughts. They are grateful for the opportunity to aid one who strives to unify the galaxy.


    <id>681162
    <position>39864
    <data>This one thanks you for listening to its requests, Commander.


    <id>681163
    <position>39865
    <data>Please allow this one to voice the question of whether these warriors serve any use, if your own efforts fail.


    <id>681164
    <position>39866
    <data>This one begs you to accept these soldiers on behalf of the Illuminated Primacy, Commander.



    <id>681175
    <position>39877
    <data>I appreciate it. This kind of cooperation's been way too rare.



    <id>681165
    <position>39867
    <data>May your path be swift.

    <data>Didn't you used to be an underwear model?


    <id>681296
    <position>39923
    <data>Yes, but then I stole some poor actor's larynx and read a copy of the hero's journey. Now I save galaxies instead.


    <id>681282
    <position>39909
    <data>That sounds like a pretty sweet gig! But, I bet it's harder work than modeling.


    <id>681297
    <position>39924
    <data>True, but it's more rewarding, the hours are better, and it's less dangerous overall.


    <id>681283
    <position>39910
    <data>Saving the galaxy is less dangerous?! You said you had to steal a larynx just to get the job!


    <id>681298
    <position>39925
    <data>Well... less dangerous for me.



    <id>681287
    <position>39914
    <data>Alright Shepard, let's see you walk and talk.


    <id>681290
    <position>39917
    <data>Easy! I can listen circles around you Shepard.


    <id>681292
    <position>39919
    <data>Genius. Right.... Which camera would the genius like?


    <id>681293
    <position>39920
    <data>Alright, let's see this "up and down" looking.


    <id>681295

    <data>Close up on Jimbo if you will!


    <id>681299

    <data>A wide shot of the three of us please!


    <id>681304
    <position>39931
    <data>Once, during the summer when I was a young man of only seventeen, I met a strange old man wearing brown leather winter gear, not unlike what's worn by the huntsmen in the northwest, who walking ponderously down the Kingsroad with a crooked wooden staff. He stopped me to ask.... wait, Mass Effect is the fantasy one right?


    <id>681308
    <position>39935
    <data>Hah! Well maybe so, but we'll never know will we. In order for you do demonstrate your dubious ability to listen to me while you walk around, I would have to talk long enough for you to walk around me. I'll just make sure I don't ever... ramble on long enough... sigh....



    The full report on Diana Allers's death. Have fun. This may be slightly misordered. Dupe lines removed. This is similar to Emily Wong's report earlier, but signed with a different name.

    <id>693422
    <position>40506
    <data>Sad news tonight out of the Horsehead Nebula. The Alliance dreadnought SSV Ararat has been destroyed, killing everyone aboard.


    <id>693423
    <position>40507
    <data>Among the dead... one of our own, GBC reporter Diana Allers, contributor to "Battlespace."


    <id>693424
    <position>40508
    <data>I first met Diana in an exchange program between New York University and U. Milgrom on the human colony of Bekenstein.


    <id>693425
    <position>40509
    <data>Even then, she was driven. Her sunny disposition masked a burning desire to make a difference, and her weapon was the truth.


    <id>693426
    <position>40510
    <data>Diana initially covered political news on Bekenstein, but following the geth attack on the Citadel, something changed in her.


    <id>693427
    <position>40511
    <data>She joined us here at the Galactic Broadcasting Corporation as a junior war reporter.


    <id>693428
    <position>40512
    <data>In the short time since, she was shot at on Tuchanka, arrested on Taetrus, and bitten by a vorcha on Garvug. And she loved it.


    <id>693429
    <position>40513
    <data>You could not bring Diana down. She told me once, "If they want to stop me, they're going to have to kill me."


    <id>693430
    <position>40514
    <data>Tonight, we remember her and her brave crewmates aboard the SSV Ararat.


    <id>693431
    <position>40515
    <data>The dreadnought met its end after drawing fire from a Reaper gunship long enough for three other dreadnoughts to ambush it.


    <id>693432
    <position>40516
    <data>The tactic worked, but at the cost of the Ararat and 7,610 souls aboard.


    <id>693433
    <position>40517
    <data>We thank the deceased and their families for their sacrifice, and we here at GBC News say goodbye to a friend and colleague.


    <id>693434
    <position>40518
    <data>Her will made a substantial donation to the University of Milgrom's Rossberg School of Journalism, which we will be matching.


    <id>693435
    <position>40519
    <data>Diana Allers may have been killed, but she has not been stopped. For GBC News, I'm Azad Carter. Goodnight.


    <id>693436
    <position>40520
    <data>We would do well in these days to remember that the same species that produced the Illusive Man also produced Winston Churchill.


    <id>693437

    <data>For every darkness, there is a dawn. For every villain, there can be heroes.


    <id>693438

    <data>For every Cerberus, there is a Hercules, who dragged him, barking and spitting, out of the Underworld and into the light.


    Talking to... Traynor? Allers? About Quarian war.
    Show Spoiler

    <id>693439
    <position>40523
    <data>You said earlier that you were a pacifist. But here you are drafted into the Alliance. Do you support the quarian war?


    <id>693440
    <position>40524
    <data>I don't. War is a monstrous thing, always. Many quarians will die because of this.


    <id>693441
    <position>40525
    <data>So the quarian casualties bother you. Do you feel the same about geth casualties?


    <id>693442
    <position>40526
    <data>The geth... it's regrettable. They're thinking beings, but humans and quarians must come first.


    <id>693443
    <position>40527
    <data>It's like overfishing. Nobody wants to make a species extinct, but you need to feed people.


    <id>693444
    <position>40528
    <data>A fisherman once told me, "I'd kill the last surviving trout if it meant feeding my child for a day."


    <id>693445
    <position>40529
    <data>Would you blame him?


    <id>693446
    <position>40530
    <data>Not at all. But that's the point. A real leader keeps the fisherman from ever having to make that decision.


    <id>693447
    <position>40531
    <data>That's where the quarians failed. They have to choose now between life and death. That's no real choice.


    Recruiting Allers, also talking to her. Most of these look similar, but different from lines in the final game.

    <data>How's your new assignment working out, Allers?

    <id>693449
    <position>40533
    <data>This place is insane! You've got fifty crew members with ten thousand good war stories.


    <id>693450
    <position>40534
    <data>That's not counting the unshackled AI, Matriarch Benezia's daughter... oh, and the communicator that can talk to Earth. Earth!


    <id>693502
    <position>40586
    <data>I'm guessing you'd like access to Admiral Anderson.


    <id>693451
    <position>40535
    <data>Uh, yes? If you want eyeballs on the screen, anything from Earth is your lead story.


    <id>693452
    <position>40536
    <data>I could be online with that admiral twenty-one/seven/nine-eighty-seven, I still couldn't make a dent in all the news people want.


    <id>693504
    <position>40588
    <data>You lost me when you threw around strange numbers.


    <id>693453
    <position>40537
    <data>Oh! Sorry. You can totally tell I'm a colonist kid, can't you? I'm from Bekenstein, we've got long years.


    <id>693454
    <position>40538
    <data>I always thought Earth was the place to be. Right now, though, I'm just thanking my stars that we're next door to the Citadel.


    <id>693455
    <position>40539
    <data>But hey, I'm not the story. People tune in for news of Earth, not my charmed little life.


    <id>693507
    <position>40591
    <data>I'll hook you up to Anderson when he's available.


    <id>693456
    <position>40540
    <data>Whoo. Okay. I think you just doubled my ratings. The plight of Earth... that'll bring in the outrage.


    <id>693508
    <position>40592
    <data>Hit every sympathy button you can. I want recruiting lines around the block every time your stories air.


    <id>693457
    <position>40541
    <data>Remind me to tell you about the time I made an elcor cry. I can do this, Commander.


    <id>693458
    <position>40542
    <data>Whoa, there. The plight of Earth is like my angle. If you want outrage, news of what Reapers are doing to Earth is your lead-in.


    <id>693511
    <position>40595
    <data>Anderson needs to get across war data. He's not a spigot you turn on for news.


    <id>693459
    <position>40543
    <data>You won't regret it. I don't need face time, just a data upload. It won't even interrupt your time with him.


    <id>693512
    <position>40596
    <data>All right. We'll find a balance.


    <id>693514
    <position>40598
    <data>Allers... I need you to leave the Normandy.


    <id>693460
    <position>40544
    <data>You're kidding.


    <id>693461
    <position>40545
    <data>You're Commander Shepard. You're not kidding.


    <id>693462
    <position>40546
    <data>Uh... is there a reason?


    <id>693517
    <position>40601
    <data>What do you think?


    <id>693466
    <position>40550
    <data>Uh... I think I don't want to be eating through a straw for a month. So, uh... signing off.


    <id>693467
    <position>40551
    <data>Uh... I think I'll start packing.



    <id>693522
    <position>40606
    <data>Your story is Cerberus. They're humans, complicit in the greatest war crime in history. Aliens will hate them.


    <id>693468
    <position>40552
    <data>Hmm. Bright and bubbly me, talking about the worst humankind has to offer?


    <id>693469
    <position>40553
    <data>You're lucky, Shepard. I like a challenge.


    <id>693526
    <position>40610
    <data>Hope you enjoyed the interview, because the Normandy's going dark.


    <id>693471

    <id>693527

    <data>You've got enough material. You won't be hurting.


    <id>693472
    <position>40556

    <data>[Kelly seems distraught] Shepard. It's good to see you.


    <id>694608
    <position>41212
    <data>No, not really.


    <id>694609
    <position>41213
    <data>Well, I've been questioning myself. I owe Cerberus a great deal. Was it right for me to leave them?


    <id>694610
    <position>41214
    <data>It's a long story. Did you know I actually met the Illusive Man face to face once? Few have.


    <id>694611
    <position>41215
    <data>Before Cerberus, I was a waitress on a luxury liner with a very exclusive clientele.


    <id>694612
    <position>41216
    <data>I'm not sure if the Illusive Man was there for business or pleasure. I just kept his drinks coming. "Bourbon. Three fingers. Neat."


    <id>694613
    <position>41217
    <data>He had his pick of any working girl, but he took an interest in me, I suspect precisely because I wasn't for sale.


    <id>694614
    <position>41218
    <data>We spoke for hours. It was obvious he wanted more than just good conversation. And I can't say I didn't want the same. He can be very seductive.


    <id>694615
    <position>41219
    <data>I knew if I slept with him, I'd lose all his respect. I didn't want that to happen.


    <id>694616
    <position>41220
    <data>I never saw him again after that night, at least not in person.


    <id>694617
    <position>41221
    <data>The management of the liner changed sometime later. Batarians took over. Things got really bad.


    <id>694618
    <position>41222
    <data>Some of the staff were beaten. Others just disappeared. None of us could leave.


    <id>694619
    <position>41223
    <data>I don't know exactly why, but one day Cerberus boarded and cleaned the ship out. Killed every batarian.


    <id>694620
    <position>41224
    <data>But they took care of the entertainers. Made sure we were all safe. Set us up with lodging until we got on our feet.


    <id>694621
    <position>41225
    <data>I got a message from the Illusive Man. He'd pay for my college, and if I did well, I'd have a job waiting for me.


    <id>694622
    <position>41226
    <data>So you see, I owe him my life, in more ways than one.


    <id>694623
    <position>41227
    <data>So long story short, the Illusive Man got me out of a bad situation, gave me an education and a job. He gave me a future.

    That was a joke, right? You're just kidding? PLEASE TELL ME YOU WERE JUST KIDDING! :cry:

    Frak that, I fully expected he was an option coming into the game, what with how advertised he was and the promise that one of the new male LIs was bisexual. Who the heck knew they meant Kaidan?
    And no, it's not a joke, that's why I keep the line IDs in - the files are free for download in this thread and you can look it up yourself if you don't trust my word =)
    Y'know, there's a reason why I posted all that Vega/BroShep rule 34 fanart in the Vega thread =D

    Making James bi would have made SO MUCH more sense. Kaiden being bi I didn't like - never got the feeling that he was anything but hetero in ME1 (he was a FemShep LI and if you're a Male Shep and screw it up with Ashley you can hear her talking with one of her sisters about how they think he's hot). I know they didn't explicitly say that he was one way or the other but it certainly felt that he was straight to me. Don't get me wrong - having that option available isn't my problem in the least - I just hate it when they muck with characters and that's what this felt like to me.

    Edit: Also reading those Kelly lines makes me sad :( I don't know why they did it, but changing her voice/character model still stands out as a huge disappointment of ME3 for me. Why didn't they just import her damn character model from ME2? I really liked her in ME2, I had a 'Kelly' save ready to go for ME3 and then she's barely recognisable and she's barely in it. Bah.

    It's plain OOC, and BiowEAre did that already with Anders in DA2 (because turning him into a stupid emo teenager completely in contradiction with the character he was in DA:O Awakening was apparently not enough). I'm not against gay/bi LI options in videogames, as long as it doesn't contradicts established characters. Which was definitely the case with Kaidan. But I really think that "continuity" and "staying true to the original characters and story" are two claims BiowEAre have dismissed when they made DA2 and ME3.

    People keep saying that, but they conveniently forget that Anders is straight-up mentioned as bi in DAOA (did you ever listen to his tales of his working in a whorehouse? He and Isa share some of these in DA2 too), and both Kaidan and Ashley were supposed to be bi options in ME1, too. Similarly, Tali was supposed to be Shepardsexual, and there's a lot of traces of that left floating about. Returning cut content is not a crime.

    My bad then. Though it doesn't make Anders and Kaidan less OOC in their respective last game, it invalidates what I said earlier about their sexual orientation. It seems I didn't play enough DAOA to have witnessed these scenes, and I didn't know about these bits that were supposed to be in ME1 ;)

    Was the lore still trashed in the expanded endings?

    Is any of this data from the leak?

    I'm afraid you'll have to paraphrase that, as I don't quite understand what is it you're asking.

    Is the lore still disrespected by the Extended Cut? Yes, it is. The Reapers are still tools of a crazy AI, except now we know that why the AI is crazy and that it Reaper its creators (to make Harbinger).

    Returning cut content isn't the issue for me though. The issue for me is developing a character in one direction and then making a jarring change. I'd feel the same way if they'd made Ash available as a FemShep LI in ME3. Again, go nuts with options (also not an issue), just don't muck with the characterisation!

    I wasn't a huge fan of DA2 Anders either but at least his drastic personality changes could be explained by the Anders/Vengeance merging co-existing thing and also the crazy way mages were being treated in Kirkwall.

    Nope, none of those are explained in the EC or in the leak. Part of WHY people hated the leak originally. It's just that things BioWare changed in the game compared to the leak was the stuff they SHOULDN'T'VE CHANGED. They changed everything except for the bad parts =)

    File two: BioGame_NonShip. The name sort of implies "um, we're not using this stuff ever ever". Most of it contains snippets from ME2 DLCs, but there are some weird things I haven't seen in ME2's scripts, too...

Shepard must find a unique combination (where each machine shows two "parts" not shown on the other machines) to rebuild a healthy model of himself.

    After the player has soved the puzzle there is a gated section while the computer gathers and processes all the data. During this time the player must fight a wave of enemies. I see this lasting around 1 minute of spawns.

    VO (VI): "Model is not complete, no transfer can be made"
    "Model complete, rebuilding all data, this may take some time"
    "Model rebuilding at 25%"
    "Model rebuilding at 50%"
    "Model rebuilding at 75%"
    "Model rebuiling completed"
    "Transfering model data to specified omnitool. Thank you and have a nice day"



    Script plans. These have been floating around the Interwebs for a while in a disjointed fashion. I'm putting them IN THE ORDER SUGGESTED BY THE SCRAPPED PLOTS, NOT THE ORDER OF THE FINAL GAME. Just so's you know. A lot of these bits overlap, be aware of that.

    <data>The leaders of Earth have grounded you and are demanding you answer for his actions while with Cerberus. Alone in your "cell," you gazes wistfully at the idyllic view of Vancouver, Earth's gleaming capital city.

    The hearing begins and your are summoned; escorted from you cell by an elite young soldier, James. On the long walk you are accompanied by your mentor and friend, Admiral Anderson. Just as you are about to enter the hearing, your old friend (lover?) Ashley/Kaidan arrives; but there's little time for reminiscing as you are whisked inside. James and A/K wait outside while you face your accusers. The hearing is a witch hunt; nobody seems interested in the truth. Even with Anderson defending you, it's clear the leaders won't listen to reason.

    Before the trial can conclude, your warnings are proven true as earth is rocked by the advanced guard of the Reaper forces. Chaos ensues as you and Anderson attempt to rendezvous with the Normandy and escape the carnage. Your initial plan is foiled and you're forced to find a new pickup location. Meanwhile, A/K and James find an alternate route and reach the Normandy ahead of you. As Reapers forces bear down on you and Anderson, the two veteran soldiers stand back to back to repel the overwhelming enemy numbers. At the last possible moment, the Normandy arrives; Alliance troops poor out of the Normandy, you leap on board and encourages Anderson to join him. Anderson refuses -- Earth needs him here! He vows to stay and fight while Shepard searches the galaxy for a way to defeat the Reapers once and for all. In the midst of the battle, Anderson grants you access to all Alliance military facilities... including the archives on Mars.

    As the Reaper forces converge, you, A/K, Joker, and James blast away in the Normandy and head for Mars in search of answers.

    <data>Tension on board the Normandy is high as your team races to Mars. James wants to stay and fight on Earth... and though A/K trusts you, they're confused about the need to go to Mars. But you have a plan.

    The small team takes the shuttle down to Mars while Joker remains in orbit as a lookout. Shepard, A/K, James and the Alliance Multi-Purpose-Bot (AMP) exit on to the dusty surface of the red planet. After taking in the stunning vista, the team realizes something isn't right; the Alliance forces are absent. In their place are Cerberus operatives with an order to shoot on site. You dispatch the first few waves, but discovers that Cerberus has taken over and his Alliance Access only gets him so far.

    The sudden and mysterious appearance of a blue alien on Mars is the key to their problems. Liara has a plan; your plan actually. It was her job to find a way in if you could not free yourself of your captors on Earth. With Liara's appearance, James is sent back to the shuttle while you and your old mates proceed to the facility. More Cerberus operatives appear, but they present little resistance, and you easly finds what your looking for; the prothean archive. Accessing the data proves to be more difficult. The information is being deleted. As you and Liara desperately try to stop the download they are confronted by the all too familiar visage of the Illusive Man. He's aligned himself with the Reapers, but wants the prothean data in case the deal goes badly.

    A deadly Cerberus fembot is responsible for the data theft. She completes the download. you and your team must prevent her escape or risk losing the data. Amidst a blinding wind-storm of red sand they chase the deadly mech through the facility. Just when it appears the fembot might escape on a Cerberus troop ship, James appears; piloting the Normandy's shuttle on a kamikaze mission, destroying both ships and disabling the fembot. A/K reaches the mech first and attempts to recover the data; but the fembot awakens and critically injures A/K. As you and Liara face down a horde of Cerberus troops lead by the fembot, James appears from behind the wreckage. The odds slightly more in their favour, you and your team defeat the Cerberus enemies.

    The Normandy comes to the rescue once again, warning of more Reapers enroute. The AMP drags the fembot onboard while you and Liara carefully retrieve their fallen comrade. With no clear plan and a critically wounded team mate, you are forced to make your way to one of the few places you still have friends... the Citadel.

    <data>When the turian homeworld of Palaven comes under attack from Reapers an emergency summit is held on the Normandy to discuss a military alliance between turians, salarians, and krogan. A brief but hostile diplomatic meeting follows - the turians desperately need krogan assistance against the Reapers. But Wrex/Wreav balks - he says the salarians are secretly hiding krogan females who survived Maelon's experiments and are immune to the genophage. Wrex refuses to help unless these females are released and a cure is synthesized.

    You break the stalemate and gets the salarians to admit they have the females. You are brought to their equivalent of "Area 51" - a secret military facility on Surkesh where five of the immune krogan females are being held. Once you take custody of the females, Cerberus launches a sneak attack and tries to thwart the alliance by killing them. A few females die (scripted) and you must lead the remainder out of the carnage to escape the base. All the while Wrex/Wreav is fending off further Cerberus incursions.

    When you return to the Normandy, you are told that that there is a cure to the genophage on laboratory on Tuchanka. You should take the surviving Krogan females there.

    A Turian Primarch mentions that if you are going to Tuchanka, there is a downed turian warship, and his son was onboard.

    Landing behind enemy lines, you surprise attack from behind-- decimating key targets along the way.

    After the rescue is complete, the TURIAN COMMANDER receives an update to his mission from the TURIAN PRIMARCH-"My son is a failure and an embarrassment, kill him." Shepard is now faced with a tense diplomatic situation and a difficult decision.

Upon reaching their target, you must choose to sacrifice turian commandoes in a last, desperate charge to quickly overcome tactical objectives and to gain the doomsday device intact for maximum benefit to the war effort, or order the commandoes to 'paint' the doomsday device from a safe distance for mortar bombardment, reducing causalities and gaining an ally, but collecting only raw materials.

    <data>You take the Krogan females and escape to Tuchanka, where Mordin has a laboratory. Facing the possible end of the galaxy, Mordin's conscience can't rest until he has put the genophage to bed. He's ready to synthesize the cure, but the Reapers are alerted to the situation and move against Tuchanka, fearing a resurgent krogan. Amid the first wave of Reaper attacks on the planet, you are forced to divert to a location forbidden to all outsiders: the home of the krogan females. It's a vast shelter/repository dating back to Tuchanka's glory years. The riches and treasures of krogan civilization were safeguarded here during the nuclear war. Overhanging cliffs and natural rock formations protect the aging monuments of a forgotten city. With Reapers coming for them, the player must now travel to Mordin's lab via an ancient krogan tram/train system, safeguarding the surviving female krogan on a perilous journey through Thresher Maw infested ruins. Though decaying with age, the glories of the bygone krogan empire are in evidence all around them - their artistry stands as a visual testament to what the krogan could become again if the genophage was cured. At the same time, Wrex/Wreav leads a squad of his best warriors along the canyon rim to hold off Reapers.

    Finally, you reach Mordin's laboratory with just one surviving female left. The lab is linked to the Tuchanka "Shroud" -- an atmospheric layer of particles designed to shield the planet from the ravages of the sun brought on by the nuclear war. A space elevator travels up to the Shroud's orbital platform where particles are dispersed. Mordin can use it to deploy the cure. Hunkering down inside the lab, Shepard holds off Reapers while Mordin works on the lone female to synthesize a cure in a climatic battle. The struggle ends by successfully luring a massive Thresher Maw to take out the Reaper boss. Once Mordin has the cure, he bids you an emotional goodbye as he brings the cure up the space elevator (ala Spock's death in Wrath of Khan). Mordin dies in orbit releasing the cure across all of Tuchanka. It's a profound moment of hope as krogan everywhere look to the sky, seeing a glittering mist that heralds their salvation. The genophage is no more.

    On the Normandy, you learn from A/K's PARTNER that Cerberus has taken over the Prothean ruins on Eden Prime. They've found the CATALYST, and Shepard must get it before they can use it.

    <data>You land and fight Cerberus through the streets of Eden Prime while terrified civilians hide, then meets up with PARTNER (who arrived earlier) just in time to see an explosion of energy coming from the Prothean ruins. When he arrives, the Prothean is standing in a crater surrounded by dead Cerberus agents. It kills the last Cerberus soldier and exits in a cool fashion. Shepard and PARTNER assume that the Prothean is a rogue Cerberus supersoldier created using the CATALYST. PARTNER goes after it, while you goe after the CATALYST.

    After fighting Cerberus troops in the area, you find Cerberus video logs that show them opening a Prothean Sphere and finding the Prothean inside. The vid makes it clear that the Prothean isn't a Cerberus soldier. He's the CATALYST. Shepard follows the Prothean's trail of destruction, fighting Cerberus troops. You eventually finds the Prothean injured and exhausted, with PARTNER ready to kill it. PARTNER refuses to listen to your explanation and tries to kill the Prothean, and you have no choice but to kill him. The mission closes with you answering to the Council for "the attack on Eden Prime" and the death of the Spectre to the Council.

    You need to gather more troops. You are told about that the quarians have attacked the geth. Tali and/or Legion contact you for a rendevous at the edge of geth space.

    <data>Aria greets you and explains her situation. She has an uneasy truce with Cerberus - they're still going back and forth through the Omega 4 relay to investigate the Collector base from the end of ME2. (If you destroyed it, they're still trying to salvage the pieces). Cerberus doesn't bother Omega as long as Omega doesn't bother Cerberus - and that's how Aria likes it. Life in Omega continues as always, turning a blind eye to the war. The Afterlife is still a happening place.

    But Omega is a good source of eezo (mining) and you need it. Aria balks at providing it since this would break her neutrality and bring Cerberus down on her head. But you convince her to provide eezo by pointing out that Cerberus and the Reapers will inevitably turn against her, so she may as well face them now. She sees the wisdom, but there's a price. She will ask for a favor in the future.

    She also mentions that Grissom Academy down in Alliance space is under attack by Cerberus. You might want to look into that.

    <data>Anderson contacts you and says Grissom Academy has come under attack from Cerberus forces trying to abduct the biotic students.

    The Normandy arrives at the Academy and in a nimble bit of fast flying, Joker gets close enough to the Academy for you to enter an airlock before nearby Cerberus ships can respond. Inside, you are met by Kahlee Sanders (from Drew's novel), who has managed to hide from the enemy. She fills you in on the situation: various pockets of students are being kidnapped across the Academy. Her youngest students already left when the war started heating up, but a skeleton group of older student advisors remained behind to mothball the station. You must liberate each pocket of captured students on a march through the Academy. The rescued students provide biotic back-up as a one-two punch that enhances your own attacks. The initial group of students who Shepard rescues are being led by Jack, who has dialled down the crazy quotient and is now assisting the students to harness their powers in ways that aren't self-destructive. Jack will bring the students along a safe path towards an evacuation point while you provide a distraction to draw off the Cerberus forces. There's a mounting sense of chaos as the player glimpses intense ambient combat all around them.

    Finally, you must bring the students to escape pods. They'll use their combined biotic powers to blow out an entire section of the Academy to suck the Cerberus forces into the vacuum of space as they go. Something like ME2's "biotic bubbles" will keep the students safe. Once onboard the Normandy, you makes a choice about the students' fate: they can go with Jack to a safe refuge and wait out the war, or they can all join the conflict as a special "biotic battalion" (led by Jack) but face the prospect of getting killed in action.

You race down to the planet's surface where you finds the gigantic gun. It's too well-defended for a frontal assault, so you create diversions to bleed off the geth troops so you can slip on board and wreak havoc. In a daring commando raid, you cut off the geth reinforcements that would otherwise swarm him and reaches the main console.

You fight through geth protecting servers on Rannoch, then plugs into the virtual world of the geth consensus with Legion. You explore a virtual landscape that looks like an idealized version of Rannoch, while interacting with geth as individuals instead of faceless monsters. Legion directs them to the Reaper's influence, which takes the form of a corrupted looking environment. After cleansing the Reaper "infection", Legion transfers millions of geth programs into its own physical platform, saving them from indoctrination.

When it's dead, the geth become momentarily helpless, and Shepard decides whether to let the quarians destroy the geth or use the coded signal from the now-dead Reaper to bring the geth up to a true state of intelligence. Either way, you get the fleet you needs to retake Earth.

    <data>The Prothean henchman needs to access an artifact kept in a monastery in the asari capital city on Thessia. It contains vital data about the Device. The artifact has also secretly given the asari an edge over other species for hundreds of years, though most people just think it's a religious relic. Problem is, Thessia is now suffering a full-fledged Reaper invasion. Shepard lands in the middle of a war-zone and fights his way through an on-going Reaper battle (think Baghdad shock-and-awe) to gain access to the monastery. With bombs still exploding outside, Shepard explores a portion of the massive religious temple and finds the relic hidden in plain sight in some sort of grand cathedral-style area. It's as if they built the temple around the relic.

    The Prothean henchman accesses the artifact and goes into a trance while information is downloaded into his brain. But Shepard isn't the only one interested in this artifact -- Ash/Kaidan now steps out of the shadows accompanied by Kai Leng. With guns raised in a Mexican standoff, Shepard wants to know what the hell is going on. A/K says Udina has told her all about Shepard killing her partner on Eden Prime. Udina put her in touch with Kai Leng -- an Alliance intelligence operative who helped her track Shepard down. Kai Leng plays the role well, egging A/K on against Shepard (A/K has never seen Kai Leng before and doesn't know better).

    Shepard must convince A/K he's not a murderer and that Kai Leng is the true enemy, or he'll have to kill her. With A/K resolved, Shepard then has an epic battle with Kai Leng and Cerberus reinforcements over who gets the Prothean (still frozen a trance). The war outside intensifies, with windows, roofs, walls, etc. blowing out in bomb attacks, giving a spectacular view of Thessia under fire. Kai Leng wins the fight regardless, sending Shepard crashing down through a stain-glassed window. The last thing Shepard sees before he blacks out is Kai Leng leaving with his new Prothean prize.

    Back aboard the Normandy, you receive a message from Thane's son. Kolyat has received word that, at the request of Donnel Udina, the Citadel Council will hold a critical vote in 24 hours that will abandon the hanar homeworld to the Reapers in the name of protecting other planets.

    Lessus Monastery:
    Show Spoiler

    <id>552792
    <position>10513
    <data>MISSION SUMMARY: Shepard and party search the asari monastery for the two Ardat-Yakshi being used to create the Banshee Reaper enemies. He finds they are Samara's daughters, and if she is alive, she is resolved to get them out of here. This place shows the horrors of Reaper occupation -- they have turned the daughters into biotic murder machines and stitched together asari into monsters. Shepard gets the youngest daughter out but her elder sister sacrifices herself to stop the hordes of Banshees from claiming any more victims. Once the team has time to breathe, Shepard and Samara realize that even the youngest daughter is a threat -- though noble, she is still addicted to the power rush of Ardat-Yakshi feeding, and she can't live here in isolation any more. Shepard must decide -- can she be trusted to be let loose on the galaxy, or will Samara kill her last surviving daughter as her Code demands?


    <id>552852
    <position>10514
    <data>AREA SUMMARY: This area is the landing pad on the roof of the monastery. Shepard finds the place abandoned, and the tone here is dark and forbidding.


    <id>552891
    <position>10516
    <data>AREA SUMMARY: This is where Shepard finds Falere, the youngest of Samara's daughters. If Samara is present, she is comforting her. Falere says her sister Rila is in a Reaper machine in the monastery's grand hall, where she is forced to feed off of captive asari and power their transformation into Banshees. Falere will meet Shepard there and let him in -- she does not trust herself not to feed off Shepard were she to travel with him.


    <id>552893
    <position>10517
    <data>AREA SUMMARY: This courtyard is where the Reaper forces have piled the bodies of the asari that the Ardat-Yakshi have consumed. Shepard fights Reaper enemies here.


    <id>552982
    <position>10518
    <data>AREA SUMMARY: This is where Shepard finds Rila, Samara's eldest daughter, imprisoned in a machine that takes her biotic power and uses it to power Banshees, the Reaper enemy that is based on asari bodies. Shepard frees Rila and then has a complex combat with the Banshees alerted by Rila's removal from the machine.


    <id>552995
    <position>10519
    <data>AREA SUMMARY: In cutscene, Shepard and company run to the elevator. Rila biotically throws the party inside the nonworking elevator to the roof, and draws in the hordes of Banshees closing in on her. She retreats into the elevator shaft and then drops the vator, killing herself and crushing her enemies along with it.


    <id>552999
    <position>10520
    <data>AREA SUMMARY: Shepard is once again on the roof, but he is faced with a new decision. Through no fault of her own, Falere is an Ardat-Yakshi with no place to stay or be isolated from the general population. Does Shepard let her go and trust her not to feed on innocent victims, or kill her as a danger to the galaxy? Samara's presence complicates matters further, as her Justicar code demands Falere die, but she would sooner kill herself than her last surviving daughter. What does Shepard do?


    <id>553000
    <position>10521
    <data>AREA SUMMARY: In the big decision dialogue, Shepard ends by contacting Joker and telling him to get the word back to asari command that the mission is done. We cut back to the Normandy.

    [Background] The Illusive Man offers to give Miranda's father the location of both his daughters, Miranda and Oriana, if the father supports the Illusive Man in this war by setting up, and running, a special facility to herd refugees from other planets to be handed over to the Reapers. The father agrees.

    [Player information] Early in ME3 Miranda, if alive, sends an email to Shepard saying that she has learned her father and Cerberus are back in business. A second email is recieved saying that Oriana is in trouble, and that Miranda is tracking her down. After the email, we don't hear from Miranda again. After Cat 2, Shepard asks his crew for anything on Cerberus. Shepard is concerned because Miranda cannot be reached to talk about her father's connection to the Illusive Man. EDI/Liara finds lots of transports going to Cerberus controlled locations from a place dubbed 'Sanctuary'- a refugee camp built into a massive genetic research and production facility. The objective of this mission to get to Miranda's father- he has a direct line to the Illusive Man. Shepard needs to find the Illusive Man at all costs.

    Pariah Reveal: A distant whispering that has been echoing in Shepard's head during his exploration of Sanctuary is now revealed. A hideous new Reaper minion called the Pariah. It seems busy surveying a particular cage full of prisoners. The cage is lowered to the floor, but does not undergo any further processing.

    The Pariah finally notices Shepard with a powerful mind blast while teleporting to a nearby ledge allowing its soldiers to attack.

    The horrific reveal: The camera pulls away from a single cage full of screaming prisoners being lowered onto the 'Dragon's Teeth', a spike-like device used by Reaper to impale captured prisoners, to reveal a vast field of cages that are filled with an uncountable number of helpless prisoners undergoing the same ordeal.

    <data>CineAnim Cutscene

    Final processing: Shepard enters the last large room. He sees a number of cages he has seen previously, and knows that groups of prisoners are being held within them. One of the cages is lifted by crane from deep below the floor of the room accompanied by a blast of eerie smoke. The cage is lifted to a platform. Shepard is shocked to see Reaper husks instead of prisoners come pouring out when a door is opened.

    Shepard sees that the other cages are being slowly lowered into deep smoky, pits of their own. He must fight the oncoming husks and Reaper troops while trying to stop the cages full of prisoners from being processed into husks.

    <data>Liara (or Jacob, if he's alive) directs you towards an important asset in the bolstering of the device, ex-Cerberus scientist and Prothean expert KENESIA. Kenesia is also Jacob's beautiful ex-girlfriend.

    When Kenesia experienced the Illusive Man's indoctrination firsthand, she fled Cerberus in the night. She now runs a secret, scientific enclave on a remote planet, having convinced many of the most brilliant minds in the galaxy to join her.

    Knowing that the enclave is in immediate jeopardy, you rush to the outpost. You try to convince Kenesia that the colony's only hope is to evacuate. Kenesia resists, saying that nothing could make them abandon their ideals. You point to the Cerberus forces already amassing on their doorstep. When one of her colleagues is violently killed, Kenesia wakes to reality and agrees to the colony's evacuation. You and your team prepare a defense, while the enclave gets ready to evacuate. In the shadow of the coming battle, you and Kenesia (and Jacob if he's alive) talk about life, love and hope for humanity in the face of impossible odds.

    Cerberus mounts a massive assault and the battle rages until the last living scientist boards a shuttle and leaves the planet.

After you turn the crowd against Saracino, Cerberus comes after you through people Shepard has helped on past missions. Working with Citadel reporter Emily Wong, you track the Cerberus assassins to a neighbourhood in the Wards where Cerberus has almost total control. (Roleplaying Plots 3 and 4)

    You go into the Cerberus-controlled neighbourhood with reporters Emily Wong and Khalisah Al-Jilani recording your actions through a camera mounted on your armor. You question witnesses (who refuse to talk) and fight Cerberus forces while hunting for the assassin, and in the process catch Cerberus atrocities on live video. In the final area, you uncover horrible Cerberus atrocities before killing the assassin. The vids ensure that nobody on the Citadel will work with Cerberus.

    <position>132
    <data>{TEMP} Aria tells you that Omega is now under a blockade from Cerberus. Since a direct attack didn't work Cerberus is now trying to starve Omega into submission by blockading supply ships coming in through the regular Omega relay. The level's appearance will change to reflect this -- the Afterlife has gone quiet, the music is off, the flashing lights are gone, maybe a soup kitchen has taken over the dance floor. Aria requests that you steal into the blockade and board the command ship. Take down the blockade so Omega can be resupplied.

    Zaeed's mission takes place after Shepard's lifted the blockade. Colonel Armitage, the Cerberus envoy who orchestrated the blockade, has fled the station. Aria wants Shepard to track him down.

You are forced to make an emergency landing and must fight through patrols, traps and a deadly environment to get to the Cerberus ship. Once there, you are confronted by Zaeed: He's signed on again with Cerberus as the tactician's bodyguard, and is determined to fulfill his contract. After a fight you have a chance to either persuade the merc that he's on the wrong side or finish off Zaeed. Either way, you take the tactician back to Omega.

    Oh, God, all who have cd copies should return it and demand of EA that they return the money.

    What you've dug up is too much. :cry: James as a possible love interest? Javik was supposed to be the one who will reveal the truth? Diana Allers dead? Kaidan discussing the dream with Shep? Also the data you named WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN made my eyes the size of a plate. :eek: As a matter of fact while reading through everything I forgot to breathe. Why? Why bioware? On the side note your digging up through all those files is worthy of admiration. I don't think anyone could go on and actually type it all down after discovering all of that wasted potential. At least not without a bag of tissues.

    I know its bad and wrong but I so wish to hand over a few slaps at BW.
