Recommended Posts

Notes:

  • This one is completely self-contained (though it references a former arc, due to inclusion of a character whose origin relates to it) [lets me shill¬†Ordinary People] ūüôā
  • First try at a villain story.
  • Temp powers (esp. KB, stun grenades) may be helpful, if toon isn't typically proc'ed up and exemplaring down.
  • Tested with an exemplared L38 Staff/SR brute with limited procs, and 90-something% SO's. Didn't have any major issues.

 

Thanks in advance,

Crane

Ordinary People [3 parts]=1. Standard Operating Procedure, 2. Hope and Bullets, 3. The Last Full Measure: Investigation of a series of thefts leads you deep into a vengeful plot that threatens all of Paragon City. Will you and Kings Row's "ordinary" heroes be able to stop it?

Leviathan [5 parts]=1. Hollow Pursuit, 2. Hollow Ring, 3. Hollow Victory, 4. Origin, 5. Mantle:  The  assassination of a local politician with national aspirations sets off a media frenzy among everyone's favorite reactionary network, NewsAnon. But the bigger issue is, who's behind it is all? All signs point to the one and only Hollow Point. But, as you soon find out, signs can be deceiving.

Currently testing: 38S-1: Special Forces: A prison break from a facility no one has ever heard of, featuring villains thought long gone, pushes The.38 Specials into action to thwart the insidious, multi-layered scheme of Paragon City's latest nemesis.

Second test of tests:

  • Ran with L24 (exemplared, non-optimized) Elec/Elec Tanker,¬†whose only multitarget is Sands at L15
  • Lost the escort in M2, which messes with the narrative. Since Escort text said, "Tougher than he looks," I increased his defenses. Main issue was I didn't clear the route before grabbing him, and didn't properly engage baddies. One of 'em strayed and "BAM!" down went my mish obj.
  • Reworked spawn points on M3 to mitigate running back and forth.
  • LAST MISH: Ambush is a BEAR. Am running again with another toon to confirm whether I need to make that easier. Player can exit if they just bring down the boss, and he is spawning as an LT every time, so the jury is out on this.
  • Text looks good so far. [UPDATE: Found mistake. NAME placeholder should be formatted to place in character name; fixing after test run]

Completed mish with L38 Exem Dom (Grav/Shuriken). faceplanted a few times (not paying attention to health bar like I should've). Made use of a pull on final boss, and popped domination just as he was weakening, so I melted his ambush mobs. This is a weak toon, so consider this a very doable arc. Still had some back-n-forth on mishes 3 and 5, mainly due to randomness of spawns. Considering eliminating "Save Vito, Jr." from last mish, and just have it a boss takedown, intimating that he has the wife and son hostage, and must be dealt with.
