Adding two more zones to Praetoria.

Pondering pondering, @TwoDee!  We don't know the Praetorian details, other than Richter died (and who knows what happened the rest of the Cole Gang?), but on Primal after the Well incident Richter made a point of collecting as much water from the Well as he could in vials, but they were riddled with impurities. He brought those back with him and who knows what happened then?

 

Just a thought, considering the parallels.

 

Not suggesting that was the ORIGINAL idea/source for a super serum. But you never know.

Well, at the very least, it's explicit that the Superadyne which the Family use for their Bosses is a not-make-dumb-Troll variant.  That implicitly suggests something wrong with the version the Trolls use, and suggests that the dosage which the Skulls and their customers use are sufficiently low to avoid Trollification.

 

 . . . wait.  What was the original purpose of this thread again?

LOL. Well, as the OP I DID contribute to derailing it!

 

Two new zones for Praetoria blah blah blah, scroll up and so on.

Okay so I've been thinking about this...

FW's Underground be 40 - 50, since you can, with a bit of effort, get to 40 by the end of Night Ward, but another 5 level gap would be punishing.

 

- So hear me out... What if we add a third zone (or Fourth if you want to do my Atlas Park/Shroud City idea 😛 ), that is literally just the road between Praetoria and First Ward. Like you could make Praetoria's first Task Force where you need to protect and escort a D.U.S.T./Resistance convoy heading to First Ward from all the Devouring Earth. It could be a nice segway into the underground maps as you need to get supplies into the city to safely start spelunking into the underground with your faction's support. 

 

Imagine a long strip of winding roads with the RWZ Vanguard vehicle type mechanics of them moving, and then you have a few dozen faction soldiers running alongside them gunning down endless swarms of DE trying to overrun your convoy. It can be one non-stop action packed fight from beginning to end. Obviously as a TF it won't be the only mission, so the rest can focus on establishing a foothold in the underground and doing a mini introduction to what it has on offer and what enemies are available.

 

Plus as an added bonus you can explore what the world looks like outside of the sonic barriers. You can make it support the lore by having the DE not wiping you out because of Cole's deal, but obviously for appearance sake you still need to be attacked. I'm thinking something like Last of Us aesthetics, overgrown gas statons, broken down cars as people fled, low level infected humans wandering around harassing you, lichen colonies set up as booby traps - you know, basic end of the world environmental disaster type stuff.

 

Also as a fan of Cole (All hail), it could add more depth to his character by showing actually how dire the situation is outside of the barriers. Maybe leading into pro-Cole missions later on... maybe... I know it's off topic but I'm still salty that having a loyalist character you basically just give up on supporting Cole and his invasion.
