There are some players who may be called away from this game, either due to other commitments or just wanting to take a break. Yet I have an idea that can boost their character's stats and give entitle them to a credit reward via special mission events.
From any spaceport, players can pick to serve on five different types of missions for a period of time of their choosing. The longer the mission, the greater the reward but this is really just for players who won't be able to play for a duration. The mission ideas are....
Mining - Serve aboard a mining vessel and travel to ore rich asteroids, working in the ore processing bays and hauling heavy cargo. Improves strength.
Military - Serve aboard a Consortium/Gaule patrol vessel, dealing with the constant threat of space piracy and protecting interstellar routes. Improves agility.
Engineering - Serve aboard one of many repair crews, spending long shifts repairing damaged systems or hull breaches of any unfortunate ships needing assistance. Improves stamina.
Research - Serve aboard a research vessel, conducting experiments on long lost technology and discovering the mysteries of human civilization before the collapse. Improves intelligence.
Diplomatic - Serve aboard a Consortium/Gaule emissary vessel, taking part in diplomatic missions to improve interstellar relations and alliances. Improves social.
Let me know what you think of this idea.
