Special Sub-Topic: Are You a Freelancer?
|What is the game protagonist's name?|
Edison Trent. Edison Trent is one of the survivors of the Freeport 7 disaster. He meets Jun'ko Zane in the bar on planet Manhattan and that's where his journey (as far as the follows it, at least) begins.
|Which ship in the game has the toughest armor?|
Corsairs "Titan". Now, due to the way the story progresses, you will have a tough time obtaining the "Titan" but it is very well worth it. Apart from the armor rating of over 13000, it is also the only ship aside from the "Eagle" and the "Sabre" to have hardpoints capable of mounting class 10 weapons.
|The protagonist is from Liberty.|
f. Though you start the game in Liberty space, in the Neural Net Log (accessed by pressing F5) it is stated that Trent is originally from from planet Leeds, in the Leeds system of Bretonia space. An interesting fact is that, no matter what system or house characters are from, they usually speak with a distinct American accent.
|Who are the creators of the Nomads?|
Daam K'Vosh. When Trent and Juni first find Sinclair, she reveals a number of things about the artifact, and the Nomads, amongst which is the name of their creators. Soon after that, the planet is attacked by Rheinlanders.
|What's the first ship you pilot in the game?|
Civilian "Starflier". Once you take up your first mission, this ship will be yours. It's as basic as you get, two weapons, weak shield and armor, but soon enough you'll be able to buy better equipment, and eventually a better ship.
|Who is the leader of The Order?|
Gaspar Orillion. It is first stated during a news broadcast that one of the Freeport 7 survivors, Sam Lonnigan, is the leader. However, as we find out later in the game, the real name of the leader is Gaspar Orillion. You first encounter Orillion on the battleship Osiris.
|How many major houses are there?|
Four. In the Sirius sector, there are four major "houses" populating different parts of space, named after the sleeper ships launched back in the 23rd century: Liberty, Bretonia, Kusari, Rheinland. Outcasts and Corsairs, while not official houses, are the largest criminal groups in Sirius, originating from the sleeper ship of Hispania.
|The capital planet of Liberty is planet New York.|
f. Although the capital planet is in the new York system, the Liberty planetary capital is planet Manhattan. Another populated planet in the New York system is planet Pittsburgh.
|Which of these is NOT an obtainable prototype weapon?|
HELIOS. Class 10 prototype weapons, whose names are in caps and have no available info on them, are the most powerful weapons in the game, and can only be mounted on the "Eagle", "Sabre" and "Titan" ships, as they are the only ships with weapon hardpoints capable of mounting class 10 weapons. Helios is an obtainable weapon, but it is not a prototype, class 10 weapon.
|Who is behind the game "Freelancer"?|
Microsoft Game Studios. In 2003, Microsoft Game Studios published "Freelancer", developed by Digital Anvil. The game received generally good reviews and opinions, and there are many fan made mods for the game, such as "Freelancer: Discovery".
