A New Dawn is an AU Mass Effect Andromeda role playing forum. We are based in the year 2819. We begin our story directly after the arrival of the Hyperion (the human ark) to the Nexus. Alec Ryder has gone MIA upon Habitat 7 and thus the title of human Pathfinder is inherited by his daughter, Sara Ryder, as Alec requested of SAM (his AI).
What makes this an AU? Well, unlike the game which departs the Milky Way after the second game, we depart the Milky Way after the Reaper War. Shepard has destroyed the reapers and with them gave their life for the Milky Way. This means that the canons of the trilogy are allowed to be played on the site, if you can find a good reason for them to be in the Andromeda that is.
Our rating is 3 for language, 2 for sex, and 2 for violence. Which means you do not need to be 18 to join but we do ask that you're at least 17 or over.
You can go all out in IC with the language and violence but we ask that when it come to sex that you fade to black. Sex can be somewhat described but cannot be described in detail IC.
