Death in The Operative

Is death a possible ending for routes in The Operative?

Short answer, yes.

Now for the long answer.

Putting the reader into a powerful position with a very powerful character came with issues regarding being overpowered, to combat that issue I am writing with the characters around you in mind, you may be very hard to kill but your followers and troops are just regular people. They can die very easily, and you might have to put yourself at a disadvantage to save them, and you yourself are not immortal, nor are you the biggest fish in the sea. You can die and there are characters that making mistakes around will result in your death, but it is not common as I dont want your choices to become a minefield of wrong choices, just mostly different ones.

Thats all I will say for now :wink: :smiley:

I need to be careful now.

If i do release an update today it will be just before 12 am est time and it will make the cathedral battle 5/6 done. Then next week will get into our whole next portion with the Governor ALONG with finishing up that battle.

@Classified
If I was being honest unless you have not played through the cathedral battle or want to try a different approach to it, it might be worth it to still wait :joy:


#239

Return the solute politely and thank him.

salute


#240

Whoops :sweat_smile:
I’m impressed I missed that


#241

So I have finally gotten the kill the Governor route and the diplomatic/official route to share all the core scenes they need to before splitting off again (Like setting your physical features etc etc.) so thats all nice, also updated the Cathedral battle its now 95% complete!

The next section which will either be the Friday update or sooner will open up a section where we can briefly talk with several characters from our story, including Designate Six, Captain Schofield, Liana, Jacob and another… :3

@AmericanShakespeare fixed that typo haha


#242

I really love the CWC they are so bad ass


#243

@Andrew_Stapleton Glad to hear it! I can assure you they will be back soon! :wink: if I may ask what scenes with them did you get?


#244

I used the full dosage of the toxins on the city and when I engaged the rouge operatives they protected me witch maid me feel super bad ass.


#245

More of those moments in the future. :smiley:


#246

Alright, so this next update is going really well! Should be a decent amount of content added in including some neat character moments! (Note these character moments are open to change which is why I love feedback XD)


#247

Update will either be really late tonight like borderline tomorrow or just tomorrow depending on how coding goes I had to redo some stuff.
Will be delayed until tomorrow evening. sorry


#248

Updates are always on time - they are released when ready. :wink: It is better to wait and release a working update then rush and release a broken or incomplete update, and yes, I speak from harsh experience :slight_smile:


#249

Part 1 of the new update is out, some interesting information to be found! :wink:
Next update will be out very soon. Some exciting things here and on the way!


#250

commas, commas
So tomorrow I’ll release a quick update I would like to call the comma update, thanks to a couple people who pointed it out to me, I noticed a good portion of this story requires more commas. Therefor, I will be editing a large part of the story and make it more readable! Cya then (yes the newest section also needs it a little bit so I’d advise waiting one more day before testing out the newest part, unless you don’t mind of course)


#251

In regards to a seek out the spy option. I suggest six bit’s of evidence, with a randomiser selecting one of three pairs of a “genuine lead”, and a “automated ambush”.

The reader would be able to choose any of the six, getting a false lead scene should he choose one besides other than the “genuine lead” or “automated ambush”. I’d advise using an order someone else to investigate scene to shorten the false lead scenes to simple but detailed reports.

If your feeling clever you could use these reports to subtly foreshadow future events, making it seem as if there was something going on and it was just less obvious than the GL or AA, lending credence to the idea that the bases could swap through different attempts.


#252

@Disciple
Interesting suggestion, I was thinking something similar, though I’m a little hesitant to make something completely random.


#253

Alright, the polish update is somewhat done and now out, but I am sure you all will point out stuff I managed to miss! lol Now time for me to work on the next muhahaha!
