Difficulty: Easy

(The difficulty is based on completing the quest in a well-equipped Centurion.)

Yep. There were only a couple of bugs. I'll tell you what they were in an email as to not spoil anything.

Sweet. Did you catch any of the references? I didn't mention them in the blurb and what did you think of it sir?

I haven't played Hitman myself, so I was only aware of some of the references, such as [spoil]Agent 47 and my fellow Dane Jesper Kyd.[/spoil]

The second one did the soundtrack for the Hitman games. And I meant what did you think of my quest?

Danke sir. Not bad for a first attempt. I'm going to try a holodisk type thing like from kilrathi hunt. Might tie in to this one, not sure...

I just finished it. It was nice, with a slight resemblance in the end to that of my own quest, hehe, but probably a coincidence. There's a limit as to how much you can do with the quest scripting language, although I feel it hasn't been passed yet.

One thing that puzzled me was why the "I" in the quest was very hostile towards doing the actual mission/quest, if I really don't want to work for the agency, then I shouldn't have accepted the mission in the first place.

It's a bit strange that no one else has written anything here yet, since it was uploaded.

Perhaps I should mention to any potential players, that you shouldn't start the Quest from Hooper's Hope, as I did, since then you won't get the Bartender message.

There was a Plissken in the quest right? Was it Snake Plissken by any chance? Escape from NY is a true classic.

Wow it's been ages since I've been on here... Actually the Plissken would refer to Solid Snake from Metal Gear. Each Hit has a reference to the video game world...  I wanted references to game/character creators but I didn't know that many at the time... Lol

Its kind of an nod to the Hitman franchise and video games in general, I bought the the Hitman Trilogy (Hitman 2, Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman:Contracts) and REALLY enjoy playing them. I can't really say much about the quest without giving things away. Other than you the player are "contracted" by the "The Agency" to take care of a few targets. This was my first quest submission.

I liked assassinating those "scum" for the sector, I was going to rate a 4 but you get a 5 :D

Some of the places the contact said to go were not consistent with what the location the mission listed.  Assuming that's a bug.
