Task 4: Suit Up
And now for the final task of the LC. As previously mentioned, dreams are fantastical and unbound by the rules of waking life reality, and so impossibly advanced technology is at your fingertips! It’s time to get your very own suit of Power Armor!
The task: acquire a suit of Power Armor and take it out for a spin. Use its various functions and utilities to fight enemies, block powerful attacks, explore, and investigate!
Suit Up (2 Points)
Acquire a suit of Power Armor. The suit should cover most, if not all of your entire body. This task is only worth 2 points because all of the following subtasks require that you have a suit of armor equipped.
Use an Attack Module (4 Points)
Use your suit of armor to attack something. Maybe you have a deployable sword? Or shoulder-mounted plasma cannons! Missiles? A “rocket” punch?
Use a Defense Module (4 Points)
Use your suit to block some kind of attack. Hand-in-hand with the above, maybe you have a deployable shield? Force fields… flares to distract incoming missiles. Whatever you can think of as long as it serves a “defensive” purpose.
Use a Mobility Module (4 Points)
Use a facet of your armor to move around easier. Power thrusters like Iron Man, or grapple beams or the morph ball like Samus Aran. Anything that helps you move around the environment more efficiently than just walking, running, or “single-jumping”. A thruster used to acquire a second, mid-air jump would count!
Use a Utility Module (4 Points)
Use a utility function of your armor. Perhaps you have scanning visors to acquire more information about your environment? A giant, arm-mounted drill for excavation? Welding and other repair tools for working on megastructures? Almost any advanced functionality that doesn’t fit the other three categories would likely meet this one’s requirement.
Defeat a Big Bad End Guy (2, 4, 6, 8, or 10 Points)
Fight a big boss of some kind using your armor! You don’t have to win, merely fight the enemy in more than just passing. Maybe a large arena battle with spectators watching. It can be any kind of enemy you’d like but should have that “boss” feeling. Goons and grunts won’t count! Additionally, your score for this task will be based on how many different types of the modules mentioned above that you use during the fight! Fighting a boss and not using any (i.e. walking around doing nothing) will only net you two points. Using attack and mobility modules will net you 6! While using Attack, Defense, Mobility, and Utility will gain you 10 points! (And also points for all the other subtasks listed above!) So go take down some big baddies!
This is the final task of the LC! It will run until next Friday, the 12th, at 0900 EDT. From that point you will have 24 hours to submit any last-minute claims (Saturday, the 13th, at 0900 EDT). Final scores and the winner will be announced on the 14th at the same time! Good luck!
