New Scenario "Lasers of Leixtra"
Listen up, Pilot! We need your help! Our station is attacked by generic enemies with no back story. They managed to infect the software on our multi-station Corvettes with a virus, so we had to lock them down. The only defense that we have, are multiple small Scouts, Fighters and Bombers.
Get your gear!
Make sure your intercom is working!
Select your favorite ship!
Give it a paint shop! (I think we have time for that)
Then join your squad on the battle field! The enemies are numerous, but we are brave!
And don't forget to turn on your shield, before engaging the enemy!
Good luck soldier!
During the lockdown I found the time to write a small scenario that I enjoyed playing with friends remotely. Instead of stearing one ship every one gets a small fighter. I found that this gives a more immersive feeling when you are remote - especially for new players - without taking away the communication and team effort that make EE fun. The mission is as simple as it is well known: Defend the station. But I added a few extras:
- There are 3 different classes (with strengths and weaknesses) the players can choose from, with 6 specialisations later on. Getting a healthy mix in your team is advised.
- The players can get updates and skills that give them unique powers that help them and their team
- new enemies with special behaviors
- The game runs without a GM and challenges the 1-7 players automatically
Its probably no scenario I want to support for long, but it is fun. There is a Readme in the archive and most documentation for the players can be found in the in-game database.
