New Mission Type Idea: Escort

Yes, I know the idea of an escort mission is an immediate turnoff, but I can't think of a better name for it.

The basic idea is this: Help a Tenno that was recently rescued get their Warframe back, and with it, their honor as a Tenno.

You start the mission with a naked Tenno in tow. THIS time, however, they are NOT unarmed. They will have a powerful melee and ranged weapon, like a souped up STRUN and KOGAKE, for example. They will stick close, and only attack enemies that get too close to them. Otherwise, they stick to you like glue. Your job is to keep them safe, as they are not invulnerable.

Your target is a storage vault containing your companion's warframe, of a random type. Possibly even a suit that is not available to players. When you arrive, your naked friend will start to hack the lock. You MUST defend him, as he will stop the hack to protect himself until he's clear of enemies. After a couple of minutes, the Tenno enters the storage vault, and returns in his warframe suit. At this point, security is put on high alert, and the two of you have to tear your way out through difficult odds. Now that your AI buddy is in his suit, however, he is much, much tougher, and has access to a full range of warframe powers, as well.

Upon extraction, the players are given a special reward for helping their fellow Tenno reclaim their Warframe, and with it, a part of themselves.

Variant: The naked ally is one of the players, stripped down to just their weapons, instead of an AI.

This mission type is meant to be difficult, escorting a fragile companion in, defending him, and then making a getaway against hordes of enemies, without letting your ally fall once. Aside from teamwork, one key to this is that the AI will have to be smart as well. I prefer allies that stick close, and watch your back, rather than run ahead, by far.

In the Tutorial, all Tennos come out of Cryo-stasis with their frame on....

 

 

If this mission came to be, then DE would have to admit that there are people under the helmets, and that male tenno grow boobs and lose their junk when they wear female armor....

 

 

Immersion destroyed.

There are already Rescue missions in which you bust naked (As in without their warframes) Tenno out of jail. What happens to them? I assume they lose honor for being caught, and have to get their suit back.

Lotus calls them captives. I've never seen them refered to as Tenno (Tenno Operative =/= Tenno Warframe Pilots) in game.

Sounds interesting, a mix of data mining and captive.

 

But on the other hand, why not we help collect the parts and give it to the Tenno after the mission instead of the Tenno coming with us? Or, why not we just take the parts and use it on ourselves 8D on a more serious note though, what would Lotus say? It's an emergency for him?

But I thought it was already concluded that there're people inside a Warframe? Tutorial? The suits and stuff? 

Don't mind me, but how is it that they 'lost' their suit? I don't think Vor or the Corpus would be that merciful. Or sadistic (live with shame policy).

I'd actually go for when you're escorting an *assumed* hacker *not moving like a slow robot on caterpillar threads* around hacking data storages or stuff. Hack fast and run fast? Dem tension.
