Name Of Contract: Departed: Blake’s Misfortune
Contract ID: 2-21-3900293-80
Location: Isle of Sgail
Description/Briefing: Our client, operating under the pseudonym Francis Drake, has claimed that legendary treasure hunter Blake Nathaniel has not only stolen his persona, but also several objects of interest from his previous adventures. These items include a golden idol, an ancient dagger, and a piece of jewelry with the inscription “Sic Parvis Magna”. He was aided by a war criminal who owns a private militia as well as the powerful leader of an ancient order. Collect the items and eliminate the targets with them.
Why The Contract Should Be Featured: Who wouldn’t want to cosplay as their favorite adventure hero! If you haven’t figured it out yet this contract is themed after the Uncharted series, where Blake gets his namesake. The cosplay aspect would be either you cosplaying as the treasure hunter (as all kills are using his outfit) or you could consider Blake cosplaying Drake, either way it fits. The items are references to key items in the games, the idol is El Dorado from the first game, the dagger is the phurba from the second game, and the necklace is a reference to the ring drake wears around his neck that plays a bigger role in the third game. The targets are also based on the games, Earl Cox is supposed to represent Lezaravic(Antagonist of U2), and looks the part! Catherine (Totally Coincidentally Named btw) is representing Katherine Marlowe (Antagonist of U3), as the leader of a secret society it’s a perfect fit.
Obviously I couldn’t require you to knock out Blake with the idol but making you take his disguise first means you do at least have to knock him out. Similarly getting the necklace is (probably fortunately) not required, as any wire will do. I think the contract works well as it takes place in a confined area but requires some trespassing and has a variety of kill conditions and items needed. I think even without knowing Uncharted the treasure hunting theme makes it fun. I was going to add Uncharted 4 too with a Pirate Cutlass kill, but I think it made the contract a bit too much.
