I not entirely sure why I’ve put off going to Fortuna for so long. But I wonder if it might be around feeling like I needed to ‘catch-up’ in some way to ‘earn’ the right to go.

Which is silly, given I’ve cleared way past this point already. A new player could be at Fortuna within a dozen or so hours tops, I think. Plus beyond the cinematic story sequences and a loose sequence of unlocking planets in the first place — the game doesn’t really even unfold in a strict order.

But now that I’ve been… Holy moley.

Still inside Solaris — the ‘Debt Internment Camp’

Actually being here, myself, is quite the experience. It’s a place I’d been looking forward to ever since first seeing it in a musical preview trailer.1 That the musical plays out for you on first entry to the camp is really quite nifty too.

Then as you move around the area, the odd person is humming or otherwise whistling it. It is their song. Part of who they are.

After a little while of walking around, talking to the people — it was time to go outside. See if I couldn’t help out a little.

I haven’t pushed through the Fortuna story too far yet. But so far… My help may have harmed more than anything else.

It might also have proven the catalyst for the rebellion to live again — but that’s fairly cold comfort, I would think, to those facing the consequences of my attempts to help out.

Either way — I’m in now. I’ll have to go back and help(?) some more. Soon.

I got to the point of unlocking the Zboard. It’s a rather interesting zone, that’s for sure. A very nice break from the more crazy dungeon map runs.

And that intro song… woo that’s a beaut.

    I haven’t quite unlocked the Z-Board yet, but soon!

    It’s quite funny to me how much I’ve latched onto Warframe again. I assumed I’d play it *exclusively* in multiplayer — but I have so much stuff I want to chase that it’s edging out Skyrim a lot of the time even in my solo times. xD

    I probably could do a month or two locked down to Warframe only.

Hehe, Fortuna :D When I got through the story, I did more harm than good, too. Thought I messed everything up but… I won’t spoil anything!

Anyways, the Z-boards are awesome and there’s also Nightwave-missions (like a seasonpass-thingy) that are rather cool to do :)
On top of that there’s also some Z-Board-race tracks that you can do and they’re rather cool though sometimes a bit tricky to master^^

and I love the Fortuna-song :3

    I’ll be back here fairly soon methinks. Although spent more time on Eidolon lately working on Augur mod set and Gara blueprint parts. Sooo cloooose!
