Thanks contributor and Cyrus! Every post keeps the thread alive and keeps me working on the project. I'll update the OP with your discoveries.
I found another secret, this time in Secrets of the Dark Age!
Campaign = Secrets of the Dark Age Mission = Mission 5 - Secrets of Envidius
Description of secret = Just a little story blurb. This one could be a little tough for people. Difficulty = Hmmm, let's say "Moderate." There are an awful lot of xenos on this map coming in from lots of different directions. If you aren't running a melee heavy build (or carrying lots of ammo) then you will have a hard time.

slayernz, I had found some of those before and was going to go back and document them properly, but you've beaten me to it! Maybe we should have made this the challenge for September. Whoever can log the most secrets in TA first. Unfortunately we've started now.
It's scary - I'm walking through every frickin corridor and room to find these things. The Berserker is AWESOME for this type of activity. Him and the Scouts find things pretty well. I do have my Hydra in the squad because I'm trying to build prestige (sad huh) ... I might stand him down so that I can focus on the treasure hunting
BTW, I've given the Hydra a plasma rifle so he can build kills up (prestige) ... once the update that counts Hydra kills is released, I'll switch him back.

Just finished the first level of Reller's Relief. These are easy gets. Move a Neptune north and turn him left towards the xenos. The rest of your squad can romp and play at will. For you're trouble you'll be rewarded with such great insights as "This zone is totally overrun by xenos!" Yikes! There's some real story though too.
UPDATE: I searched the other levels of Reller's Relief pretty well and didn't find anything.
Eric the Mad is a fresh recruit in the 47th Cartographers Squad (Formerly the TA Challenge Squad). As a Berserker, he leaps into the job of surveying with great gusto. Whenever it is his turn to move, he sets off with a giggle and sometimes has to actually chase after the Xenos that seem to move away from him. As an aside, has anyone else actually noticed this? Unless the Berserker is within 2 squares of a Xeno, the Xeno runs off to find another knight. It's okay for Eric the Mad though, because he loves to chase Xenos and turn them into pretty purple Rorschach tests. "Butterflies". That's what Eric says he sees. He loves butterflies and so squashes as many Xenos as it takes to see more of them.
