Arrew, There is obvious signs that people are enjoying your missions. Considering that many simply don't use these forums the numbers would be larger and show that the missions are being played. I appreciate your work on them and I would love to see updated versions so that they will continue to be viable into the future. To be honest I looked at several in the mission editor program and there are things that you coul dadd on to make them much more sophisticated. I am not suggesting you use the editor to write them but they are a good source of feed back what the program would be looking for so there will be no issues with them when they run.

Thanks Arrew In my opinion these Ardent missions are the best around.

On the unsecured message: If I understand you correctly, the captain and crew suckered for it first time, It was a piece of the whole mission that made it feel immersive, I guess is the only word I can find right now. It made it better. It was an extremely good idea to put into the Mission. More like that in the reworked missions might even be a good plot device. A kind of running second level story or secondary sub plot? In any case a very good inclusion.

1... Does the community really want them? What's the desire for scripted mission these days?

2... A bit of a spoiler for episode one. There's an unsecured message that leads the players into a trap. What feedback is there about it? Did you get what was going on or was it unclear? Would an ambush be better in it's place?

Thanks.... [biggrin]

 I think if you have time and could update both the Ardent and SpaceCorp missions there are more than enough people that would play them. Many people have only been playing for a year or so and would jump at the opportunity to run these missions.

Unsecured message:
I played this originally on my own running 4 screens or something.  I didn't fall for the unsecured message, but I still enjoyed it.  It might need some more "sneakiness" or something; maybe instead of unsecured, it's actually on an older security algorithm or something.  And there's no reason it couldn't be both.  I went in knowing it was probably a trap, but maybe the enemy is a little smarter and can manage to still hide and drop an ambush in there somewhere.

Regardless, I'm getting ready to run a crew through the campaign, so if we last that long (I don't remember what episode it was in) I'll let you know what they think.
(If I remember to come back, since I have a legitimate "out of sight, out of mind" issue.)
