Considering that Mass Effect: Covenant doesn't seem to be generating any kind of hype, I've decided to take that off the table. But I would still very much like to host a Mass Effect RP for you all at some point down the line. So, I've come up with this scenario instead...
As you all know, regardless of what happens at the end of Mass Effect 3, the Milky Way's network of mass relays was heavily damaged, leaving dozens of colonized sectors of space without a means to receive aid of any kind.
One such place is the remote Psygnosis Cluster, which is located in the Quarto di Maestro verso Tramontana portion of the galaxy map, or due east if you're looking to approach it from the Shrike Abyssal.
Psygnosis draws parallels from the Andromeda Galaxy's Heleus Cluster in many ways, but is a little less than half its size. However, it more than makes up for this by having more than double the amount of available "golden worlds," all of which have been colonized in some fashion. This made it an ideal place for refugees looking to escape the war to go.
While fairly self-sufficient due to a working economy and an elected quorum that helps run the proverbial show, there's no denying the fact that being cut off from the rest of the galaxy is going to start to have a negative impact on everything sooner rather than later.
So where do you fit in, in all of this? That's a very good question, and one that only you can answer. Do you live in the cluster? Or are you a visitor of some kind? Whatever you are, be mindful that in this scenario you are not special like Commander Shepard or the Ryder twins. You are just like everyone else around you -- doing everything that you possibly can to survive until the crisis is over.

Lym: Lym is wondering... do people still live here? :P
Rex: Hey all, I'm home early thanks to medical reasons. I'll keep you all informed. Love y'all!
Punished Gabe: It'd be great if they just retconned the season finale and kept him in the future, but I doubt they will.
Punished Gabe: Keyword here is "may." They pretty much wrapped everything up with the season finale.
Punished Gabe: I spent three hours from 3 AM to 6 AM trying to imprint on it. The first one ended up dying as soon as it got out of the egg, but this one survived.
Punished Gabe: I did.
Ardenith: Tamed, Gabe. TAMED... Unless you literally raised it from an egg, in which case... Daymn.
Punished Gabe: Attention everyone: I have bred a velociraptor. Here is a picture of it. http://i.imgur.com/kkiDRSK.jpg That is all.
Punished Gabe: Are the recent planet of the apes movies worth seeing?
Captain Falcon: Sounds good, man. You do what you gotta do, and take care of yourself. I hope it goes well!
ThyssenKrupp: So I'm going to be delayed in getting back home. The last few days here have left me, my mother and Mountain Man thoroughly wiped and unable to commit to a 7+ hour long car ride in 80+ degree heat.
Captain Falcon: Hm. Duly noted.
Punished Gabe: meh. I did too, turns out it was okay :/
Captain Falcon: But... it's Pirates FIVE. I mean, I took one look at that trailer and cringed. But hey, to each their own.
Punished Gabe: I mean...I liked it :/
Captain Falcon: But yes, smooth sailin' Thyss, we'll be around!
