Feature Article: Mysterious Stranger Quests

A nameless individual offering work on behalf of an anonymous employer. While normal businessmen would be unlikely to go for such a deal, among Marauder Captains it isn’t as unusual as you might think. His existence has been hinted at before, but now we’re glad to be able to say that the Mysterious Stranger quests are very close to being completed and put live in the game. This new quest arc offers ten original missions, the chance to get the famous medic Murtas to join your crew, and unlike the Trader quests, which were always intended to be a self-contained set of missions, it serves as the beginning of a longer story.

These single player missions will feature varied custom landscapes to fight over, and some interesting tactical challenges to guide your army through. The missions run from level five to level fifteen, though eager players will often be able to access missions a level before the recommended one.  Of course the units you fight will get tougher as you advance through the quests, but aside from the regular units of a similar type to the ones you have access to, there are also a few unique surprises in there that you won’t see elsewhere… and we’re not talking about mortts – though you’ll be meeting them again too!
