Marauder Shields 22: Maggots (Mass Effect) by koobismo Marauder Shields 22: Maggots (Mass Effect) by koobismo
The 22nd episode of the "Marauder Shields" Mass Effect comic. In this one... We take a look at different, less heroic side of the war.

Be sure to play this track in the background to upgrade your reading experience: www.youtube.com/watch?v=631RvQ…

This is an ongoing story providing an alternative fan-made ending to the Mass Effect story, with a single game-changing maverick transforming the course of history: Marauder Shields. Be sure to start reading at - at the very least - episode 6. Special thanks to MichelKobayashi and to my awesome team, who support me immensely! :)

[The Mass Effect universe, its design and characters are owned by BioWare/EA Productions. This is a work of parody and fan-fiction, created under the terms of fair use. Special thanks to BioWare for creating the world we all love and care for!]

P.S. This is another "different take, different atmosphere" episode, hope you'll like it. ;) Be sure to tweet about it and spread the links around! Oh, and if you're not following me yet, do so at twitter.com/koobismo

It's been too long since I've tried catching up with Marauder Shields (I've been *BUSY!*), and I like how you joke about the whole multiplayer trading card thingy.

Re-reading the entire series and I just realized that the Codex entry in this one doesn't quite match up. Emily Wong could not have been black-listed if she was able to be on Earth and broadcasting on ANN the day of the Reaper invasion like she was.

Grrr, I hate DA's lack of editing possibilities, I accidentally ended the message before I typed everything up...

...or finding themselves in the middle of a Reaper invasion. There's a major difference between how a network connected to an official body of government governs its licensing in a time of peace vs time of war. If Emily Wong was in the middle of escalating things at the eve or during the Reaper Invasion it would have no connection to her being banned a year or two before, when no one yet treated the Reaper threat that seriously, whereas PR shticks of "we have nothing in common with Cerberus" were incredibly important to diplomatic efforts of the Alliance.

I did a little bit of searching and it turns out I was wrong. It's been a while since the #solcomms stuff, so I mistakenly thought she was interviewing someone directly affiliated with the Alliance. My mistake.

No worries, it's actually a valid concern and I thank you for bringing it up (it's what enables me to correct small mistakes if such arise) - I might have been a bit clearer to what I meant in the codex myself, I just chose to limit the amount of exposition to keep a certain flow and codex-like feel.

Cheers!

If I ever see any mistakes that I can prove I'm obviously going to have to make an extensive Google Doc listing them all. Extensive.

It does match up. ;) Being blacklisted by the military doesn't mean "being forbidden from being a journalist". Blacklisted journalists are not given precious scoops and interviews by military officials, aren't privy to inside information often released by military PR/propaganda, are not invited to important events, conferences, etc. Basically - it's a ban on official military channels, which is pretty bad for a pro journalist covering topics on which the Alliance usually has a lot to say, but it does not prevent anyone from following their own stories... or finding themselves in the middle of a Reaper invasion.
