We have a special dispatch from Lieutenant Desna and her Recon Rangers:
Are you ready to undertake missions – dangerous missions – into a zone of the Clockworks? A zone of considerable danger, or "danger zone", if you will?
Well, get ready to jump off the track and shove into overdrive (after getting into the elevator, following a thorough gear & accessories check, and maybe getting a glass of water or something, because these mission are difficult, you should always be hydrated!): *All danger missions are available at once*, rather than only appearing through daily rotation!
Elevator to the Danger Zone
We repeat: From now through October 6, 2013, all Danger Missions are available at once!
As part of this promotion, Dangerous Prize Boxes are now available in the Spiral Knights Supply Depot.
Dangerous Prize Boxes feature items favored by Lieutenant Desna and her elite Recon Rangers. As the elite of the elite – there being no points for "second best"<sup>1</sup> in the Clockworks (just in King Krogmo’s Coliseum) – the Recon Rangers gear is designed for maximum damage and intimidation. And while not all denizens of the Clockworks speak the same language, the language of intimidation is clear, for it involves putting spikes all over everything.
Recon Rangers are trained never to give up. Each Ranger is outfitted with a shield known as The Bitter End -- the name serves as a reminder to all as to precisely when a Ranger is permitted to drop it in battle.
Take a Look into the Danger Prize Box
You know what they say: The further on the edge, the hotter the intensity. Just as true whether applied to aerial dogfighting or to promotional Prize Boxes, this ancient proverb symbolizes the awesome stuff you can get from a Prize Box – including the aforementioned Bitter End shield, any of the full set of “Dangerous” gear, and anti-personnel spikes!
<sup>1</sup>This is technically not a quote from Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”, which is obviously the theme here. It’s from Cheap Trick’s “Mighty Wings”, which we hadn’t realized, and which throws into question everything we thought we knew about the Top Gun soundtrack.
<sup>2</sup>There’s no lyrics in “Danger Zone” that we could reconfigure to mean “additional notes for this week’s update”. Seriously, we looked. It would have been really convoluted, like an inverted 4G dive with a <strike>MiG28</strike> Snarbolax.
