[Stories] The Lonely Beholder. Chapter 2

Recommended Posts

Beholder2Eng.jpg

The Mother finishes scanning the base when another child enters the bay. The defence lets him through — the Handyman is loved by Mother, and she trusts him.

— The data is confirmed, — he says, without taking his eyes off the woman in the chair. The Mother can feel the pain in her chest blocking even the whining hurt in her spine.

The Son has really betrayed them.

The most lost one turned out to be cunning enough to hide the connection with the Engineers. The Mother caught an unknown impulse in the System a few days ago and sent the Handyman to check it out. The faithful child gave up his own business — the development of military optics — and took up the investigation. The disappointing findings were more unpleasant than System failures, sparkling the Mother's spinal cord.

— What do you want me to do? — the Handyman reminded her of his presence.

— Wrap up the investigation and take on more important matters, — Mother did not recognize her own voice. — We'll continue our move to the Valley. It's time to remind the Mentor what he owes us.

— There was something else in the Son's message, — said the Handyman thoughtfully. — He gave someone the encrypted coordinates.

— I'll take care of it, — said the Mother with effort, showing that the conversation was over. The Handyman reads the message correctly, nods and hides behind the door.

The System obediently accepts passwords, and powerful magnetic locks silently lock the Mother in the dark. She turns the cameras back on. The central one shows the main hangar. There are a lot of workers here, and they are like a swarm, patiently and smoothly processing the cells with combat vehicles. The armoured metal and barrels shine like the chitin of the May bugs Mother was so afraid of as a child.

The Daughter again and warehouse again. No one but Mother has any idea that she's marking the lab site so that her Son can have a place to work with. Touching care for her brother... The Daughter would kill anyone who found out. She never knew how to care and accept care. Even knowing that, the Handyman wants to protect her — and for some reason, without hiding information from the Mother about the betrayal of the Son.

Affection blinds.

The Mother does not immediately dare to look at the half-dark laboratory, but does so — and regrets the next moment.

The traitor she should execute is once again looking into his blueprints. A flexible support, ideal for supporting a weakened spine. Her spine.

The Mother turns the camera off.

There's a fight tomorrow.

She'll deal with the coordinates later.

Nope) This week we plan to launch the last mass testing. Just a reminder: the update was (and is) planned to be released in the end of January - beginning of February.

Will the last mass testing happen from friday to sunday just like the other ones? Oh, and we will get the chance to try the new wheeled leg movement part too? Just curious.

Yep, if the test server launches this week, it will be available on Friday-Sunday. Wheeled legs...well, maybe ;)

Why the story?

It doesn't work this way :) Each update is released only once it's ready. According to our plans the update will be released in the end of January - beginning of February.

Love these stories.  We could use more background like this in the game.  In fact, could you just collect the stories, and put them in the game?

If you look at one of Treeburger's latest crossout videos on youtube around time 20:45 (before for some weapons, after for some) the new weapons are broken as fish. Nerf them before moving them to Live server. I can link the video if wanted here. ALL the new weapons are broken and OP as hovers when they were introduced basically.

And finally the wheels legs !!!

About these wheels legs... i'm affraid that you will put them in a pack... Please dont do that ! it would be terrible.

About the special rarity.

This new thing is gonna be a pain in our butt.

Crafting will be so much longer... if you really plan to add this, make the craft time quick, like 30 minutes.

The game is already too grindy, the crafting is too long and too complexe. Dont make it worst.

I really like the stories like this where they keep you on the edge wanting the conclusion. This is one of the better pieces, for sure.

Thank you!

Good tales ans backstory make game more than just a game.

Crossout should be more than just a game, and i believe Crossout will have fans and nerds as other big hit games do.

With the second installment of the Founders' story, it seems I was able to predict quite accurately what kind of a faction that would be. Though my piece appears to be much later in the timeline.
