Architect Missions by Reborners
« on: March 23, 2009, 06:06:59 PM »
I thought we ought to start keeping a list of the missions created by members of Freedom Reborn (the board, not the SG).  I will keep the list organized so currently published missions are at the top.

If you want your mission listed, post here.  I don't want to 'harvest' missions without permission.

Please note things like whether the mission is intended for Heroes or Villains, and suggested level ranges if you can.

If you remove a mission from publication, or update a mission, please let me know.  

If any arc on the list hits the Hall of Fame or Dev's Choice, please let me know.  I will find some way of denoting that on the entry.

I think this is a great idea, BB.    I would add that one should also include, in addtition to unique ID #, the description of the story that the player would see when browsing. 

I say this because I could see the FR/NRF gang being very helpful and checking out missions regardless of descriptors, (just as friends helping each other out) where others might be more selective.   Players here might be able to offer constructive advice to help intrique non-forum members into playing our missions as well.

I thought about including descriptions, but that would interfere with a concise list.  I'm hoping to keep the list at one line each.  Basically ID, Title, Author Name (w/FR Member Name), Alignment, Level Range.

Still, I agree it's important.  So I will provide the mission descriptions here, if provided by the mission author.  That way if someone unpublishes a mission, it could be republished by popular request later on.

So start posting, Architects!

Mission Descriptions

Honor Unbound
An Honor Brigade themed mission

Cutthroat Competition
Arc ID: 2774
Faction: Villains
Creator Global/Forum Name: @Frozen Northman, though it shows the author by the Test Server local character, Absolut Brut.
Difficulty Level: Introduces some custom enemies halfway through the arc, and includes an Elite Boss at the end. However, also provides allies to make the Elite Boss manageable.  The Elite Boss will only appear as a lieutenant if you are using the lowest difficulty level.
Synopsis: A simple task from the Facemaker to round up a batch of live organ donors swiftly escalates into all-out war with another faction for the limited resource pool of innocent victims.
Estimated Time To Play: Four missions, runs from 30 minutes to an hour solo on Difficulty level 2.

A humorous look at what it's like to try to balance the demands of a superhero and his private life.  Built to solo, but not for the faint-of-heart.  The final mission is the most difficult and it has a couple of surprise twists for the unsuspecting.

Recommended Level Range: 5-40

(Contains some custom NPC's)

The Coldest of Wars
Arc ID: #299972
Alignment: Heroic
Level range: 1-54 ("officially" 40-45, but I used a lv18-20 villain group for playtesting)
Enemy groups: Crey, Freakshow, Winter Horde, custom group (moderately challenging)
Synopsis: The Federal Bureau of Super-Powered Affairs keeps a close eye on Crey, trying to find evidence about a suspected illicit superhero engineering program. You assist agent Janet Kellum following a lead about a potential breakthrough, only to find that this time, Crey have bitten off way more than they can chew; their meddling has awakened an ancient, all-but-forgotten enemy. Can you stop this old-new menace before it's too late?
Other notes: This is a light-hearted arc in the spirit of 60's TV spy shows; it is intended to be a prelude to the 'official' Crey-related Janet Kellum arc. Last mission has a controller-type EB, but it will downgrade to a soloable boss on a low difficulty setting. Alternatively, carry breakfrees! The custom group has been re-tuned after I16 to be significantly less annoying and still give good XP.

I completed my first arc: The Undoing @ Funeral Pyre.  The id # is 14696.  I tweaked it as much as possible last night, but it was so late, I didn't test the latest revisions.  I would appreciate any comments.  Also, what type of enemy layout, such as staggered, back loaded, etc. is everyone choosing?  Some of them, and I can't remember which ones atm, seem to spawn enemies that are too low.

I forgot to include that the alignment for my mission is heroes or villains, and the level range is 1-54.  There are custom critters throughout the story, with the same EB in the last two mishes, and an AV in the final mish.  The arc is five missions long.

"The life of a hero is hard.  The private life of a hero is... about to get harder."

This mission is about what happens when private life and being a superhero collide.  It's built to solo, but bring your friends if you want.

Title: A Tooth For A Tooth
Arc ID: 19856
By: @Frozen Northman
Villainous
Level Range: Mission 1 is 14-33, Missions 2 and 3 are 1-54, and Mission 4 is 15-20.

A centuries-old dwarf seeks to rebuild his power and influence in the modern age, taking vengeance as he does so.  Elements of Scandinavian mythology are incorporated.

I'd welcome feedback, especially on the difficulty of the villains.  Mission 3 includes a custom Elite Boss, and Mission 4 includes a custom Archvillain.  (Though the Archvillain will spawn as an Elite Boss if you solo it.)

Title: Skin Deep
Arc ID: 20266
By: @Tortuga
Neutral
Lvl Range: 11-20

A former Vahz surgeon named Botox is upsetting the organization and inciting a revolution by creating 'good looking' cadavers.  Defeat Botox and dismantle his operation.

It's a single multi-objective mission, so even though it's listed as short, it isn't.  It took Marm and I about 30 minutes when we play tested it.  There's an EB/AV at the end.

Feedback would be great!

Honor Unbound by Ringside. It's an Honor Brigade themed mission.

BTW... I've played this solo and thought it was a blast.  Zap did a really good (read: uncanny) job of translating the Honor Brigade to CoH.  It's almost like playing through the comic book.  Once you collect your allies, you cut through the goons like a hot knife through butter.  And you'd better collect them if you're a solo squishy because the goons can rack up damage real fast if you let them.  Alas, Conroy was too much for us and Lightning Rod got KO'd before we could take him down.

RE: "A Day In The Life" Feedback

Viking will be pleased to know that, based on his feedback, I cut the number of empty wastebaskets in the first mission in half.  He would have been more pleased if I'd done it before I published the first time.   ;)

Heh.  I am amused that my feedback resulted in positive action.  My sacrifice was not in vain!

For reference, I will note that Cutthroat Competition is also scaled to take place generally in the 15-20 range.  (I think one mission scales up as high as level 22, though.)  Also, since I had to republish Cutthroat Competition, its new ID is 15467.

It's almost like I wrote the Honor Brigade comic or something! Heh.

I'm glad you liked it. I had a lot of fun putting it together. Seeing Toy Boy smacking dudes around with a baseball bat makes me smile.

Oh, I didn't realize the Arc ID changed when you republish.  Oh well, it'll change again when I publish on Live anyway.

Good to know the level range for CC... I've only got one villain high enough to play it :)

"Bases Loaded"
by @Tortuga

Arc ID: 7715
Length: Very Long
Morality: Heroic
Lvls 5-40 will gain XP (one mission is open to 1-54)
Description: The Paragon City Planets are playing for the pennant in tonight's game but The Family has other plans.

5 missions: mission 1 and 4 are longer; 2, 3 and 5 go fast.  Two custom groups, 2 custom EBs and 1 custom AV.  It's definitely meant for teamplay, especially mission 4 which is pretty epic. 

I'd love to get some feedback on this one before i14 goes live.  I would suggest playing with at least a duo, but a full team will get the full effect.

Just a reminder... I14 is currently scheduled to go live tomorrow (Apr 8).

All of the above missions will be labeled as unpublished unless you let me know when they've been moved to Live.

I'll have to play for tickets to unlock maps for mine before I can republish.  Don't forget about unlocking content if you need to.

Published "Bases Loaded" to the live servers.  I can't remember the Arc ID, but search for @Tortuga or "Bases Loaded" and that ought to do it.

Updated... keep those updates coming!

BTW... 'A Day In The Life' has been very slightly toned down based on feedback about difficulty.

Thanks for keeping the Mission Info updated, BlueBard.

If you could, please change my Mission IDs to the following:

Cutthroat Competition: Mission ID# 10171

A Tooth For A Tooth: Mission ID# 10173

I republished these missions in testing a hypothesis, which turned out to be true.  As a result, I prefer these finished products.
