Cobalt313 Posted June 15, 2014 Share Posted June 15, 2014 (edited) This kind of ties in with an older thread I made concerning the idea of a new Warframe or two that was only available in Prime form, but I had an idea for a new event that I think would be a good way to introduce them. The idea may need some adjusting, but it's basically this: You know how Void maps sometimes spawn with those odd parkour/laser gauntlet rooms off the main path you can take for random loot and bragging rights? Ever think all that protection seemed a bit excessive for a few boxes of Affinity and credits? Let's say they ended in something more... unique. Let's say there was a door behind all of those crates. A very special door, like some kind of vault door. The sort of door that can be only opened by those worthy (such as yourself) and would probably tell . Behind this door is not your average room, either; this one seems a lot more ornate, lots of prominent gold trim, fancy statuary, and this really ornate looking box thing on a pedestal in the center. While you're admiring the architecture Lotus calls you. She says you need to get out of there quickly and take that relic with you, and judging by her tone of voice and the fact your objective just changed to the extraction point it seems she doesn't mean that lightly. Not one to disobey orders, you pick up the artifact and make your way to the extraction point. So far nothing else out of the ordinary, until you make it back out of the gauntlet... Suddenly you hear a strange sound coming from overhead. What is that? Bells? A gong? Drums of some sort? Whatever it is, it seems to be whipping the local Corrupted into a frenzy. That golden light on their face-plates has turned red and they're behaving unusually aggressive- they're not taking cover, attacking from a distance like they usually do, or even bothering to aim; they're just going all banzai and swarming you like maniacs. If that weren't enough, those hidden defenses- lasers, turrets, and whatnot that usually stay inert until you step on a pressure plate- have all turned on. At once. Whatever you just took must have been pretty important. By this point you're probably doing the logical thing and running like a maniac for the exit, skimming past enemies in your way by whatever means you have. If you're not, don't worry, Lotus will probably remind you a few times that staying and fighting is a bad idea and you need to skedaddle. If that won't convince you Stalker might even chime in, calling you out on your "blasphemy" and claiming you need to be punished. Just what the heck did you steal? Oh look, there's extraction. Looks like you're about to find out... Mission complete, excellent work Tenno, yada yada let's look at rewards. Prime Warframe part! Nice! Which one is it? ...er, seriously, which one is it? You're pretty sure you've never seen that name before... TL;DR: New event where Void maps can spawn with hidden vaults at the end of gauntlet rooms. The vault is locked and can only be opened when all players in the mission have reached it. Players must also be above a certain Mastery level; if one or more is too low, a mysterious voice will alert the team that they cannot pass and the door will not open. Inside the vault is an Orokin artifact that you must carry to extraction for a reward; this objective overrides any previous objectives you may have had (so this probably won't happen on endless missions like Defense or Survival). Upon collecting the artifact, Corrupted enemies become more aggressive; their ranged attacks become considerably less accurate and they will attempt to overwhelm you with swarm tactics. Additionally, all Tower stationary defenses will activate regardless of previous trigger conditions. Stalker may also have an increased chance to appear if you stay on the map for an extended period of time. If you can make it to extraction under these conditions, you will be rewarded with a part to a lost Prime Warframe- not just a Primed version of an existing Warframe, but a Prime warframe for which there is no "normal" version. I haven't exactly nailed down the details of what Frame this would be, but it would necessarily be very powerful and possibly demonstrate abilities above that expected of normal Tenno technology, being made using lost Orokin tech that had not been replicated. Possible new Lotus lines for the event: -Attempting to open the Vault with one or more players below required Mastery: ???: "You are not worthy... return when you are stronger..." Lotus: "This ancient Orokin vault was designed to be opened only to those of the (rank here) status. It is possible to achieve that title if you continue your training, but until then I'm afraid there is no way to open this door. Continue with your current mission objective. -Upon discovering the Orokin Relic: "How is this possible? Tenno, I need you to bring me that Relic. Disregard any previous objectives and get to extraction." "This can't be... Change of plans, Tenno. Grab that Relic and get to extraction." "Your mission has changed, Tenno. You must get that Relic and bring it to the extraction point. This could be the most important discovery we've made in centuries." -Said randomly when fighting enemies while carrying the Relic: "There is nothing in this Tower more important than that Relic you carry. Take it to the extraction point and get out of here." "You cannot win this fight, Tenno. I need you to reach the extraction point with the Relic and your life." "Do not engage, Tenno. The Neural Sentry will do everything in its power to stop you from leaving with the Relic. You must not let it succeed."
