“a lot of fans have proposed...quests”
Well then,
You once stumbled across a group of Tsi-hu and their kaiju pets. They saw you alright but hesitated to attack you; they lowered their weapons and sheathed their claws. You kept your distance from them but the aliens ran away by changing to their beast form. At first, you thought to yourself, “Why didn’t they attack me?”.

You continued the chase until you spot them in an outpost but this one’s different. This outpost has a working alien radio tower, a terraforming station and a crudely made omniframe hangar. However your lifesign detector showed live humans in there but there are no cages in that outpost or cotainment for prisoners.

With your hair on your back stood and stiffened, you are left to wonder, what is going on in there?
This mission series is very difficult to do. It is advised that you equip the best loadout and highest tier you can as well as having no pending missions active.
Much of which involves soloing objectives that can normally be done by a squad. Consider this as your content warning.
Lived a horrible social life from childhood to adult, Vindrax Jethir never really had many friends even from among those who accompany him on missions and raids. The freak accident during his grade school years caused by his classmates left him with over half of his body looking like a lizard man. What’s even worse is that none of the culprit was punished for that. This is undoubtedly be one if not the prime reason why he is utterly distrustful of any authority figure or organization be it the police or a well renowned Gatestrider reaper guild.

Mission objectives:
-Leave or get kicked out by your current guild.
-Be guildless for 5 in-game days.
-Gain 95% trust to Vindrax.

->>!WARNING!<<- Initiating this mission as soon as you leave or get kicked out by your guild prevents you from using the Guild, Friends, Voice Chat and Private Messages until you complete the last mission of the series. Also your name tag will be invisible to everyone and will not show up on search as if you were blacklisted by everyone except the Admins/GMs. You can still auto join groups for raids and invasions but you are only limited to using local chat. PROCEED AT OWN RISK.

I don’t trust anyone about my side of the story that easily. You want to know? Do something really ice cold to your friends. Leave everyone behind first and stay off the grid before speaking to me.
As you enter Vindrax’s hideout, you felt like he is about to kill you because you know that no one will be able to know you or contact you far away from anyone. But from all that time living outside the grid and doing errands for Vindrax, you finally knew the truth: Vindrax was trying to help the Tsi-hu refugees for years to live in peace. Many of the aliens were badly wounded from the endless war they fought. One of them tried to reach you out but you flinched. Others were screaming in pain. There were also alien children too. No points for guessing how many were not orphans. Some of your fellow reapers here were...cold and uninviting.

The reapers here show signs of battle fatigue and they give you the thousand yard stare at any time they talk to you. Some don’t seem to notice you yet you see them trying to heal the wounded; human and alien alike. This isn’t a hideout; it’s a bedlam hospital. It’s no wonder Vindrax’s hideout is disconnected from the Gatestriders; many of which were traumatized several times over and no one would ever hear their side of the story.

These aliens were in the crossfire between their kin for being traitors and yours for well...being not human at all. Open communication between them and humans was the first on list. But sadly, at any time one of them tried to reach out and contact the Gatestriders, they were killed on sight. With no chances of ever resolving the war, this would take generations to come even if any reparations will ever occur. Now you know one horrible side of the war and possibly more are there. All alien wars are black and white with no shades in between, right?

Mission objectives:
-Mine and deliver 1,000 Phased Ores to Vindrax.
-Create or steal 100 crates of Tsi-hu medical supplies.
-Create or steal 100 crates of Gatestrider first aid kits.
-Rummage 600 containers for building materials from Category 3 or higher Tsi-hu bases.
-Be warned though, your THMPR mining signature is disabled until you complete the mission series. Yours will not show up on the map for others to see though they can still help you out if they spot you out there mining. Obviously, stealing Gatestrider first aid kits is frowned upon; this will have a serious impact on your faction standing with them should you decide to do this.

You see? See why I don’t just let anyone know? Do you know what would happen if those narrow minded higher ups find out about this? So choose, become a hero fighting an endless war or a pariah stopping an endless war?
Spending a lot of time with the aliens, you decided to help out with Vindrax. Despite the hardship many of you have gone through, none were as ‘your back against a wall’ as this. Nowadays, you felt that you could do most of the chores Vindrax gives you alone despite the fact you needed help with at least three. With so many reapers here were either gone missing according to their friends or gone AWOL, most of them decided not to go back because it is pointless and they just want to stop the suffering caused by the war. Either way, your former side doesn’t care that much.

But suddenly, Vindrax’s hideout has been spotted by Gatestrider scouts but he knew it wasn’t worth the risk of fighting them so he decided to turn off the sensors and hide the thermal signature. It’s a good thing that his hideout is underneath a mountain and with so many tunnels running below. This isn’t the first time it happened.

Mission objectives:
-Prevent the Gatestrider scouts from revealing the hideout.
-Do not let the Gatestrider scouts kill off the wounded Tsi-hu. (0/5)
-Use the Kaiju Mimic to distract the scouts away from the hideout.
-Firing warning shots is encouraged if the scouts go after the wounded but do it too many times and they’ll see you as a threat. (0% ———— 100%)
-Be warned though, most of your omniframe systems are offline to minimize your signature so you won’t be scanned but you’ll be flying blind.

If you fail this mission, you have to wait for 32 real time hours to do it again.
So, how’s it feel to be an exile? Pretty good like a monarch right?
With that out of the way, Vindrax shows you why he can’t go on with you; his only omniframe is badly damaged from countless battles and does not have the required credentials for a proper omniframe repair or even accessing the database for a new one. So he decided to use that as the foundation for his next omniframe but with a different purpose. It’s very risky not because Vindrax would be fighting the aliens to get the parts but because he’d be illegally piggybacking on many raids by the Gatestriders. They will find out why Vindrax went against the Gatestriders.

Mission objectives:
-Deliver 10 omniframe repair toolkits to Vindrax.
-Get a copy of the latest omniframe modeller program.
-Deliver 10 tons of omniframe salvage to Vindrax.
-Deliver 30 kaiju shielding to Vindrax.
-Be warned: salvaging omniframe parts from battle is considered a crime; your faction standing with the Gatestriders will severely drop if they caught you some in your inventory. Also, kaiju shielding is a component for the Tsi-hu war machine and they tend to send death squads on any thieves if they found out.

-After mission completion: Because of your recent actions, you are now a wanted criminal by the Gatestriders on charges of theft, treason and suspected espionage. From time to time, some bounty hunters will come to try to take and arrest you. You can still live off from player bases but with limited access such as repair and craft omniframes but not artillery strikes. You can still build a base but only in limited tech level.

Is being a glorified exile taking a toll on your day to day habits? One day you will realize why my life was silenced by many. Besides, nobody cares about the other side of the story. Only the speakers or the writers of those in high places immortalize the story in one fell swoop and silencing anyone who speak against them.
*You must wait for 3 in-game days after completing the previous mission*
After repeated visits to the hideout, you found out that everyone left and evacuated the place. However Vindrax left a note on the table:

<name of player>,
listen closely. We’ve left the hideout without you because the Gatestriders and the enemy aliens are nearing my location each passing day. We can’t live off in this kind of hunting games anymore
so me and the exiled reapers went to these coordinates I’ve written inside of the envelope. Make sure you are not followed once you get here. Don’t worry, I’ve set up a nice terraformed zone on an undisclosed coordinates so that both humans and Tsi-hu could live in peace that I’ve set up years earlier as insurance.

As for me, well I chose to stay. There might be more alien refugees that I could offer help but I don’t know for how long I could keep up with the charade. Oh and by the way, you might want to grab that map and keycard by the drawer. Let’s just say I buried a treasure for you marked on the ‘X’.

Mission objectives:
-Dig up the ‘treasure’.
-Proceed to the coordinates given by Vindrax.
-Be warned though: up to this point, the Gatestriders stepped up their game as the bounty hunter squads you encounter in the future gets progressively harder for each mission completion.

Rewards received:
Encrypted datapad

Ironic isn’t it? Those who try to stop and prevent wars often are the ones who are taken away. It takes a physical godlike being, an avatar just to even up the score and give voice to the voiceless.
You went to the coordinates given to you by Vindrax but he is nowhere to be seen except for the miles and miles of sulfur snow everywhere. With each passing minute, you felt that someone is watching you. But then out of the blue, Vindrax called through you. He tells you on how to get to his location but it involves going through several unstable time loops near ‘the edge of the world’. Vindrax considers these unstable time loops as ‘blind spots’ because no Gatestrider is willfully going near them as the risk of spawning aliens is very likely. Now you have a choice, either boldly go through the loops and risk getting ripped to shreds by hostile aliens or out in the open where Gatestrider bounty hunters would see you and catch you by surprise.

Mission objectives:
-Go to the updated coordinates.
As soon as you get to where Vindrax tells you, your omniframe sensors suddenly warns you about a massive kaiju army heading your position. This is it. All that time helping out the downtrodden suddenly have fate turn tables against you.

Mission objectives:
-Fend off the Gatestrider bounty hunters and Tsi-hu death squads.
-Remain alive for 10 minutes.
You survived miraculously from overwhelming odds against you. However there is still one more thing left...the kaiju army. Your omniframe can’t take more of this. You can take them all alone right? Actually, you don’t have to. Why? Because the Kaiju army isn’t being controlled by the Tsi-hu but rather by Vindrax and his exiled reapers. Crazy, right?

As soon as you saw Vindrax’s omniframe, you were in awe as his omniframe looked like a half kaiju. Much of the omniframes of the exiled reapers looked like as if the Tsi-hu made them.

Vindrax congratulates you as you faced one of your most difficult trials in life yet more are still to come. You now know how it is like to have your back against the wall and fought for your victory. However don’t celebrate yet as you are a criminal with an ungodly amount of bounty. You must find a way to clear your name.

Rewards received:

Omniframe blueprint builds:
Light omniframe “Monarch”
Medium omniframe “Immortal”
Heavy omniframe “Avatar”

Omniframe equipment blueprints:
Kaiju Brainwave Controller
Neural Hacker
Cellular Metaphaser
Channeler Shield

Omniframe Abilities:
Reinforce Position
Attack Target

There are 2 kinds of life constraints. One is a limiter of strength that prevents absolute corruption. The other is a limiter of potential that prevents you from broadening your horizon. Only the one with the truest of wisdom can tell which is which.
You have finally earned Vindrax’s trust so he taught you how to communicate with the Tsi-hu. First on Santa’s list is for you to help ‘close the wounds’ slowly. However this will earn the ire of your former friends if they saw you doing it.

Mission objectives:
-Assist the doctors in providing medical care to the wounded Tsi-hu. (0/20)
-Assist the doctors in providing medical care to the wounded Reapers (0/20)
-Do not let the infirmary get destroyed (0%————100%)

Ever heard of the Geneva Conventions? That was a long time ago. Even Hitler refused to deploy chlorine gas on his enemies back then. But now ask yourself, if you were a doctor in the military, would you still heal the enemy even if it is against your orders?
*You must have the Kaiju Brainwave Controller and Neural Hacker equipped for this mission.*

The Ruins of Alfadiel was one of the sites where the Tsi-hu experimented on many kaiju breeds before it was raided by the Gatestriders. After it was done, the Gatestriders started looting and sent out researchers on whatever the remains of the Ruins and Vindrax wants all of that pie. Vindrax briefed you that the Ruins holds some of the most advanced kaiju breeds the Tsi-hu use and he wants to use the same against them. He asks you to get kaiju DNA samples and if any, some construction blueprints for making and housing the Kaiju. Bear in mind, many Gatestrider researchers there aren’t alone and they have backup in case something goes wrong.

Vindrax also mentions that The Alfadiel mainframe is underground and may hold some of the untapped information about the Kaiju and Tsi-hu and he does not want to share any of it to the Gatestriders. As of now, the mainframe remains undamaged but the power to it is offline so use your omniframe reactor for the juice.

Mission objectives:
-Acquire samples of Kaiju DNA
-Hack into and download construction files and alien information from the Ruins’ mainframe.
-Do not let the researchers find the mainframe.
-Scare away the researchers by leading a kaiju towards them.
-Be warned though as this is a stealth mission since you are still a wanted Gatestrider criminal. If your omniframe somehow get spotted, your presence will undoubtedly attract bounty hunters. Also, your omniframe servos, abilities and shields are disabled as power from your reactor is diverted to the mainframe while you’re downloading the files. You can reenable your servos, abilities and shields to defend yourself at any time but the download progress will pause.

Rewards received:

Base amenity blueprint piece:
Genesis Machine (5/100) - The Genesis Machine is capable for the creation of the Kaiju and its development from zygote to adult. With the plans modified for use on your base, yours can breed and control your kaiju as well as giving them abilities, shields, roles and constraints similar to omniframes. There are no rules that forbids fighting fire with fire.

Being in exile sure has some benefits. On one hand, you don’t have the full privileges of being a Gatestrider well...for now but on the other, you are not confined by the society’s standards. That’s when you get unpredictable.
News received from the Gatestriders has announced that Charles Mason, arkship captain of Goldhammer has been relegated as Bounty Head Officer but Vindrax knew who he was at the back of his hand. Charles Mason was the most corrupt hall monitor during Vindrax’s childhood and he would accept gifts from the bullies just to remain in office back then. Charles even had the bullies pick on those who opposed him and confiscated the proof of his misdeeds and even destroy all evidence of his bad behavior. If he is truly the same person as Vindrax thought, Charles could be just usurping power at any opportunity and repeating the same MO as he did before...while hiding behind a badge. At the same time, Charles has around 40% support from the people and he treats his entire guild as a militant order and Charles as the grand master. All the while, the rumors about his opponents and whistleblowers being silenced are denied.

While listening to the radio, Vindrax, you and several other exiled reapers and the Tsi-hu on your side around are discussing whether they are first on Charles Mason’s chopping block as all of you are considered as criminals on exile except for the Tsi-hu of course. After several tense minutes of brainstorming with his companions, Vindrax has a way to do it. He plans to collect Charles Mason’s financial transactions, connections and his opponents’ claims and analyze them for proof. Then once the data has been compiled into a ‘permanent record’ as Vindrax described, he wants it to be simultaneously distributed to the media and the magistrates. If this plan works, all of you could have your names cleared of all pending criminal charges.

Mission objectives:
-Hack into the Gatestrider Constable Database for every connection related to Charles Mason.
-Await for Vindrax’s further instructions.

It was never easy doing something like this. Some had the charisma to lead while others succeed because they had help. I had neither before I was put into exile.
You were thrown into jail for hacking into the database. Vindrax however knew this not because he planned it to happen but rather he expected it as a worst case scenario and Vindrax is crazy prepared for that. While you were looking through the files and once you hit one of Charles’ close connection, the alarms triggered. Charles had his entire ring of cronies with counter breaches to prevent unwanted ‘dumpster diving’. So much for plan A. The good news is that Vindrax has already sent a code word to the outpost for a jailbreak by kaiju attack. All you have to do is wait for it.

Mission objectives:
-Wait for the jailbreak.
-Escape the compound.
-Be warned, you can’t call your omniframe and are not wearing any armor while escaping. Or weapons. Don’t eat the yellow snow either.
Once you are out of the compound, Vindrax advises all of you who are involved to split up and get to the nearest reaper base to call down your omniframes then retreat back to the hideout. The Kaiju attack on the prison will provide the much needed time to get to one. Better hurry though as the timeframe is limited.

Mission objectives:
-Call down your omniframe.
-Category 2 Kaiju health (0%————100%)
-Category 2 Kaiju health (0%————100%)
-Category 1 Kaiju health (0%————100%)

Anticlimactic isn’t it? Just so you know, I’m not letting some cosmic filmmakers and producers write any award winning drama on their terms about how I face the conflicts of my life.
*You must wait for 10 in-game days to start this mission*
*This mission is extremely difficult. It is recommended that you have a high quality Monarch, Immortal or Avatar omniframe.*

While the jailbreak is under investigation, Charles Mason is enraged; he now knows that Vindrax and several of your exiled reapers including you are behind the hacking of the Gatestrider Constabulary Database. He also suspects that the Kaiju attack on the prison compound wasn’t Tsi-hu controlled. Charles now demands the death of all who are involved and sends his most hardened bounty hunters and his entire guild after you. Vindrax knows that Charles is just trying hard to cover up his past murders against the critics and the media. Vindrax isn’t going to stand by and take it so he plans to have the fight against him.

Vindrax is like a file cabinet full of plans, backup plans and counter backup plans. Not only Vindrax wants to reinvestigate and dig up dirt on Charles Mason, he wants the fight to take place in Almazhein Crater. The geological landscape is perfect for an ambush as its large rock spike formations and are capable of many hiding places. With the crater floor wide enough for Charles army’s mass grave, Almazhein Crater carries its significant history; it also the site where the Tsi-hu sends the condemned criminals for execution thousands of years ago.

Mission objectives:
-(Optional) Control several Kaiju under you.
-Meet up with Vindrax at the floor of Almazhein Crater.
-Hide behind the rock formations and wait for Vindrax’s signal.
As soon as you hid behind the rocks, most of your fellow exiles were in their prized omniframes. They knew that this is the day of their reckoning and so might as well go out with a bang. While waiting for Charles Mason, Vindrax is being encircled by some of his guild members. Minute by minute, more and more of the Goldhammer Reapers and bounty hunters arrive until Charles Mason himself shows up. You listened in to their conversation to hear if Vindrax gives the signal.

Charles: “Vinewhip. I’ve come to take you in.”
Vindrax: “Well, Charlie the Masonry, a blast from the past. I didn’t knew you’d still call me that. Heh, it’s been a long time since we’ve met.”
Charles: “You know why I’m here. Now get off your frame and come with me if you want to live.”
Vindrax: “Nah, I feel like I don’t want to, officer. Besides shouldn’t you have an arrest warrant for that?”
Charles: “I don’t need a warrant for your arrest. This is your final warning, Vinewhip!”
Vindrax: “Tsk tsk, poor poor Charlie. You think you are above the law just because you have a badge and a boat captain now don’t you? That’s three strikes right there; no warrant of arrest, grave threat and use of excessive force. It’s no wonder you’re a rockstar in the eyes of the journalists.”
Charles: “Those journalists doesn’t have any idea how to be an upstanding citizen. All they do is complain and show to the people the worse parts of the society. They never see and thank us performing our duties!”
Vindrax: “What duty? All you do is take bribes and usurp power! The people trusted you! Now you’re telling me that it’s the media’s fault that they complain a lot? What kind of logic is that? You clearly are blind! You never see the error in your wrongdoings!”
Charles: “I don’t want to play games anymore here. Hunters! Reapers! Restrain him!”

Charles now holds Vindrax at gunpoint.

Charles: “On charges of treason, mass robbery, resisting arrest, destruction of public property and possession of illegal alien research, I find you guilty and hereby sentenced to death. Any last words?
Vindrax: “Yes: Charles, you’re a frickin’ dunderhead!”

Vindrax gave the signal and suddenly, all of the exiles and their controlled kaijus charge in and attack from all directions. Charles’ army just stood there paralyzed from fear and bewilderment though they did warned themselves of an ambush, just not this kind. Those reapers and bounty hunter who restrained Vindrax quickly dropped their guard and defended themselves thus the restraints were released. Vindrax flew away quickly and left the area. As soon as he returns, he will come back manually controlling a category 3 kaiju as planned earlier.

Mission objectives:
-Fend off Charles Mason’s combined army.
-Survive until Vindrax arrive with the Kaiju.
The cavalry has arrived or in this case, Vindrax came back with the Kaiju. It was a towering giant with many weapons strapped to it. These were so hard to take down, it takes a coordinated effort of many reapers. You are fortunate that this one is on your side. When Vindrax’s kaiju attacks in its first move, a good number of Charles Mason’s force were completely wiped out.

Mission objectives:
-Do not let Charles Mason escape from his judgment.
-Report back to the hideout for debrief.

Rewards received:
-Charles Mason’s “dirty permanent record”
This dossier contains most of the immoral and unethical actions made by Charles Mason during his stay in office as well as being the arkship captain of The Goldhammer. Not only from Charles’ current position, but this spans his entire political career from school hall monitor all the way to Bounty Head Officer.

You see me as a villain in your story. Guess what? The villain wins. But the gods find you guilty on charges of mass murdering those who criticize you as well as coercion and unlawful indoctrination of your way of life to everyone. How do you plea?
With Charles Mason out of the way, Vindrax can now let go of his past now that the closure has been done. However, he is invited to face trial due to his actions too as well as you and all of the exiled reapers with Vindrax. Might as well come clean and remove that stint. Vindrax also plans to have two representatives; one exile witness and one Tsi-hu refugee who can understand human language. This will even up the score and possibly scare off the pants of those in the courtroom.

Mission objectives:
-Win Vindrax’s trial.

After Mission Completion:
-You can now fully access Guild, Friends, Voice Chat and Private Messages. Your in-game name tag is now visible to everyone and will show up on searches. Chat restrictions are also lifted.
-Genesis Machine blueprint pieces are now included as possible rewards from difficult raids and invasions with a Category 3 Kaiju.

I’d never thought I’d go this far in life. With so many struggles I have been through, I wasn’t even scared or feared for my life. Every time I go back to my home in the outpost from where I have lived the most, I always recall that I wished to have someone to comfort me. Though my prayers were answered, it got me Tsi-hus instead.
Well, I guess that’s for about 12 hours or so of writing. But yeah, I ain’t finished yet so gonna edit later. Also, some of the objectives are subject to changes depending on actual gameplay.

Edit 1: added 1 more
Edit 2: added intro
Edit 3: added 1 more
Edit 4: added 2 more
Edit 5: added 1 more
Edit 6: finally done.
wow, you really like hard mode. I mean REALLY. Good thing this will absolutely never be a thing, if for no other reason than IT'S IMPOSSIBLE to complete.

Rule 62: The riskier the road, the greater the profit.
yeah, but that's too much. Nobody wants to do a mission where you can't use your armor or weapons. Also, according to Mark, the reason he made this game was to bring people together. This does the opposite of that. Also also, nobody is going to spend 2-4 weeks on a single mission arc. Also also also, there are no "refugee" tsi-hu, they come out of the loop to attack us and that's it.

  • One who rode a tornado and survived.
  • One who killed a tornado.
  • One who punched a tornado in the face. (Only given to people who somehow able to do mostly melee damage to tornado.)
We can have a monster that can create tornadoes. They do so by spinning around really fast, flying in a circular pattern, using physic powers, or other such things. The monster who makes the tornado is also somewhere inside the tornado. You have to find them a injure them enough or kill them to stop the tornado.

This comes from FireFall where we had to destroy flouting rocks inside of Melding tornadoes to destroy them.

The melee achievement is only because some players, like myself, somehow found a way to kill tornadoes only using the scan hammer. And in later versions of the game the SIN blade.

Was told to throw this idea in the thread so here goes:

As a random Easter egg you can find while exploring a mini Melding Storm just chilling in a corner of the map.

Also to have a Mammoth Frame frozen in the ice somewhere.

To avoid copyrights:

1. Have a frozen mammoth in a cage frame.

2. Jungle thumping could have a .01% chance to dig up a tiger's claw (subsequently adding a WTH to lore of why it is there).

3. A kaiju that is a speedy aoe'ing alien cat on fire. Very difficult to kill and if ganged up on, can flee.

4. Marshland zone with a kaiju dragon fly that when we approach close we have a health regen.

5. Kaiju spider with a fiddle icon on it's back.

6. Find a deserted base called the Last Bastion, that we craft a metric ton of electrons, upgradable nighthawk cannons and raptor sentries on patrol.

*skipped the Accord frames

*achievements for each discovery with throw back accessories bundle after completing all

Any ideas on the rhino without another kaiju approach? Arsenal (should be easy but /shrug).

Rhino one is funny. Arsenal I like that idea. Something about firing T9 Ars rockets in nine volleys. Ahhhhhh so easy to make fun of them, but The9 honestly just doesn't need any home in Em-8ER, even if mocking them.
