Crusader Industries Mercury Star Runner
« on: August 27, 2018, 01:59:32 PM »
This past Friday the Mercury was officially revealed for concept sale.

Starting on Wednesday, the lore post On the Run featured a rather good story of Not-Han and Not-Chewy in their Millennium Falcon Belligerent Duck.

The concept reveal page called Join The Manhunt features a now daily game where you search the ARK Starmap for the ship's current location. Once you punch in the coords into the page, you get the option of either alerting the Advocacy or warning the pair to get out of Dodge.

Doing either earns you a badge. I think doing it your preferred side will grant more points to the slider (which is supposed to be working but rarely displays right). Doing either will unlock the Duck skin to your hangar, which is pretty cool. I assume they are their fate to the players in this fashion. It will also unlock either a Advocacy or "smuggling" skin in the final tally. If you are a completest, vote on the opposite side at least once to get both titles added to your account.

Here's the current location list, listed as a Spoiler. I'll try to update this every so often, but there's lists on Spectrum or Reddit if you lose patience.

Now for vids on the Mercury itself, data running, and smuggling:

I am loosely planning to get one? Have you secured one? Considering it? Share your thoughts!

One thing I shared with Brish, our sole owner of a Crusader Genesis Starliner, the other night is I believe they'll roll out the crawl space mechanic mentioned in the Mercury to the Genesis as well. Imagine how awesome that would be! Who knows if they'll even add smuggling spots in that thing as well. It's a great cover and adds more gameplay options than were conceived before. I seem to recall crawl spaces were a gimmick used in Air Force One with Harrison Ford, but please correct my memory on that one. It's been awhile.

I did some ship shuffling and now have a Nox Kue to Mercury upgrade sitting in my hangar. It seems like a terrific Swiss army ship to round out what I already have, opening up cargo, data running, and smuggling gameplay opportunities. Should be an entertaining ship.

Here's a helpful splice someone made from the cutout and additional images.
