Mass Effect Andromeda Transcript : Nexus Reunion

Hello everyone!

Today we’re publishing the transcript of Nexus Reunion: it starts with Ark Hyperion joining the Nexus for the first time and ends with Ryder going to SAM Node.

As usual, all the transcripts are available in pdf and html format here.
We’re publishing a full transcript this time so you can read the entire mission (main and additional scenes) in one go.

We’ll be adding information about the quests in those transcripts soon.

Thank you and we hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Mass Effect Andromeda Transcript

Publishing the Mass Effect Andromeda Codex (and other news)

Hello everyone!

After a long hiatus, we came back to the Mass Effect community to ask if any of you were interested in joining the MEL team. We were thrilled with the response we got from the community and found ourselves a great team. You can find out more about our new members and their work in our About page. We would also like to thank previous members of the team for their efforts in laying the foundation for the new team to work with.

So, what’s new? Well, we’ve been hard at work.

We’re very proud to share with you the complete Mass Effect Andromeda codex. It contains all entries that we compiled cross referencing three sources: our own screencaps, the Mass Effect wiki, and the Library of Codexes website. We hope it’s as accurate as possible but in case you notice any mistakes or missing entries, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@masseffectlore.com

The codex is available in four different formats: .word, .pdf, .epub, and .html, which includes embedded links for easy navigation.

What else?

  • We updated our Mass Effect Guide to include everything Mass Effect Andromeda. More precisely, we added a page for Ryder and Andromeda’s Galactic Community. Our Mass Effect Canon page also got an update, and we’re currently working on updating Major Events and adding a Mass Effect Andromeda Multiplayer page, as well.
  • We’ve added a Links page, where you can find links to fandom spaces, social media, lore resources, and more!
    Don’t hesitate to contact us if you think a link should belong there 🙂

What are we working on now?

  • Compiling the Original Trilogy codices
  • A Transcripts page- more information about this coming very soon
  • Getting our blog active with sharing articles, interviews, and MEL news
  • A table of content for our Mass Effect Lore page. This is a big project at MEL!

Thank you for sticking with us! We hope you enjoy! 🙂

The sight of the stars

Andromeda Space

For my part I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

Hello and welcome to Mass Effect Lore! It’s been nearly 5 years since Shepard fought the Reapers with their ragtag crew. Nearly 5 years since the fandom’s had a new core experience in the Mass Effect universe.

This past Monday, November 7, 2016, we were formally introduced to our new protagonist(s), our new galaxy, our new game. I, for one, am excited for what the future will hold with Andromeda. There is going to be so much to explore, to learn, to experience, and I could not be happier.

What though, of Shepard? Of the Milky Way? I know some people are holding on tight, refusing to let go of characters, story threads, canons, and head canons alike. Does Andromeda’s release mean that we are closing the curtain on Shepard & Co?

For me, definitely not. The Ryder family and their adventure are going to enrich my already fantastic Mass Effect experience. I hope that the Ryders will help grow and shape me just as Shepard has. I hope that they too, will enable me to become stronger, more confident, and more secure in who I am and where I belong in this world.

Because that, over anything else, is what Shepard has done for me.

Mass Effect enters each player’s life differently. Some play because of BioWare, some play because of space, some because of relationships. I played because of friends. It started with them. I play now out of love, nostalgia, and because Shepard is an undying source of strength for me in difficult times.

Commander Shepard’s fight against Saren, the Collectors, and finally the Reapers is epic. There is no question there. It’s big, it’s daunting, and the overall implications are frightening. Through it all though, Shepard remains steadfast in their mission. Odds are usually stacked against them and oftentimes they must take a roundabout approach to succeed.

Shepard’s story helped me realize that there will be obstacles I’ll face and that I can overcome. There will be times when taking a different approach is better than the seemingly clear path ahead. I may also need to ask for help even when I’d prefer not to. I’ll have unlikely allies and friends, and in time, I may come to think of some of them as family. They’ll help me and I can and will help them too.

Mass Effect is to me, and to so many others, so much more than a game. It’s a touch-point in our lives that we keep coming back to for reassurance. Shepard is a constant companion and a beacon of hope through those tough days. They teach us how to persevere when we feel we cannot.

I know that my life would not be the same without Mass Effect in it and now that I am here on the brink of something wholly new and yet incredibly familiar I can only be excited. Andromeda is allowing me, someone who came to the series late, a chance to experience the hype and anticipation. These few months are going to be painful in the best way as we all wait with bated breath to see what awaits us in our new galaxy.

Who will we meet? What will we see? I hope to make new friends, not to replace those I made on the Normandy, but to add to my coterie of comrades. I cannot wait to discuss with my real life friends about the choices they’ve made with their Ryder and what came from those choices down the line. The path is unknown, not only for Ryder themselves, but for us as a player.

My one hope for the future of Ryder is for them to follow in the footsteps of Shepard. To make me see the best in myself when I cannot. To provide me with courage when I am feeling weak.

My hope for the franchise as a whole is that it will grow and expand and give me so many new things to learn. That Andromeda will not overshadow the original trilogy, but stand alongside it, as a jump to the future while harkening back to the past.

I will not be leaving Shepard behind. I cannot.

To the rest of the N7s and Pathfinders out there: Suit up and look to the skies. Never stop dreaming.
