Glossary Entry: escort mission

Quick Definition

Sometimes a player will be tasked with guiding (or escorting) an NPC* through a dangerous area. These missions* are generally loathed by gamers, as the NPC* is usually suicidally overconfident and rushes towards everything and anything that can kill it.

Naturally, if the NPC* dies, you have to start that portion of the game over again. Hence the near-universal distaste for escort missions.
