Cool! If I happen to come up with any more, would you be interested in seeing them for possible future use or even for fun?

Hrm, that didn't work out like I hoped.  It should be "[...] shuttle after hacking into the station/ship computer [...]

Hi Luminous,

Thanks for your input on this. There are two issues I'd need to fix before I could take this Frame into the wiki. First of all, the Objective needs to be a place, not a task. Secondly, the Checkpoints don't fit the prescribed themes. While your Frame would make for a fun game, it's not a good idea for me to endorse Checkpoints that deviate from the prescribed themes yet. Could you tweak those issues?

Hey Excalibur,

Can you change those Objectives into locations (not tasks) for me so I can put them into the wiki?

Thanks again,

Sebastian.

Sebastian.

Not a problem, and you can call me Curt Wink I assume you're talking about both frames? So I'll re-present them below. It's not easy coming up with the checkpoints; I keep wanting to make them semi-vague so that people can put in their own locations Wink

Connection: Framed anti-terrorist cell
Drop-Off: John Smith, Right Parietal Lobe

  • Fight corrupt guards to gain access to the parking deck and its vehicles,
  • Drive to Cincinnati in order to save the president of the U.S. from a terrorist assassination attempt.


Setting: Tomorrow, Chicago
Adversary: Major Thomas Browning

Hi Curt!

Oops. We're talking at cross purposes. Your Checkpoints were fine the first time!

I was concerned about the "Objective" part of each of your Frames. That is "Objective: Uncover terrorist plot and escape to stop it" and "Destroy and Escape the Zombie Threat." Tha Objective has to be a location, not a task. For example, "Cincinnati" or "Chicago Port."

Those objectives are fine if you want to go ahead and use them. Wink Do I need to redo all the text in the frame? If so, just let me know and I'll spam it up with the first ones and the changes you suggested.
