Project Blackstone – Warhound
Today Project Blackstone definitely broke the pattern posting Twitter entries four days in a row. The 15th Anniversary of StarCraft is in two days — Sunday, March 31st.
The Warhound is on the spotlight in this Twitter update. Yesterday, a new short story titled Command Performance by Alex Irvine appeared in the official StarCraft II website featuring the Warhound.
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: I’ve been over your Warhound modifications – some impressive attempts at streamlining here, Red.
Red Quinton: Thanks, old timer. Are you part of Branmoor’s review process now?
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: Ha, no not at all. Just poking around some of the schematics you stored here on the network. Nothing too formal.
Red Quinton: Poking around in my high-security, encoded files, huh? I like you already.
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: Oh were they protected? My apologies.
Red Quinton: No apologies required – like I said, I’m impressed that an old coot like yourself knows how to hack into protected files.
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: Oh, I dabble in machine language. A hobby, really. May I ask you about these Warhound modifications you’ve got planned?
Red Quinton: Fire away
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: I see you’ve stripped out the pilot security template to allow for quicker construction and an overall boost in system power.
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: Do you have any concerns about leaving such a powerful weapon with the keys in the ignition?
Red Quinton: These babies are going up against aliens, gramps. Do we really need a thumb-scanner to protect against Grand Theft Warhound?
Red Quinton: Can’t imagine a roach hijacking our mech for a spin around the block. And the protoss wouldn’t set foot in that tin can.
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: I’m just pointing out vulnerabilities, my friend. Never underestimate an enemy that can travel between the stars.
Red Quinton: I like the way you think, Dan. What do you say we grab a drink after work and chew the fat?
Dr. Daniel Rothfuss: Oh how grand.
This new entry makes me wonder if Rothfuss had anything to do with framing Redell Quinton in a recent Project Blackstone update. It’s hard to tell if some of the strange incidents and character slip ups are or not red herrings.
