A Blade of Bronze

This polished metal blade no longer shines with cosmic energy, as it did when a Pandora entity cut into Doctor Harvan with it. After everything you've been through, in fighting to claim the power from Pandora's Box, you can't help but wonder if all this conflict was the original goal of the Incarnate Zeus. All of this conflict and mayhem may simply be...

The Price for Fire

Your troubles began when Doctor Harvan came to you with a plan to recapture the power released from Pandora's Box. You went to the Freedom Phalanx headquarters, Fort Trident, to retrieve the Antikythera. When you arrived, however, you found the base under attack. Arachnos had overpowered Positron, and had stolen the Antikythera. You fought off the remaining soldiers and spoke with Positron, who expressed his determination in retrieving the artifact.

Together, you and Positron retrieved the Antikythera, and you brought it back to Doctor Harvan. Harvan led you to his lab, which he claimed had been built based on designs his father had left behind. Harvan activated the device inside, which began to draw in the released energies of Pandora's Box.

Unfortunately, the Pandora entities that had attacked you earlier arrived as well, and you had to fight off a swarm of golden beings. Just as the device finished its process, Harvan was cut down by an errant attack. You moved to his aid, but Harvan was acting strangely - his speech was muffled by the whirring sounds of broken machinery.

It was at that moment you realized the truth: James Harvan was an automaton, an artificial creation intended to appear human. Nemesis revealed himself to you, reveling in his plan's success. He then began to empower his automatons with the energy from Pandora's Box, and sent them to destroy you. You escaped intact, but it appears that Nemesis is now in possession of a power of mythical proportions. Who knows what he might have planned...

The Price for Fire

Your troubles began when Doctor Harvan came to you with a plan to recapture the power released from Pandora's Box. You went to your mobile base, the U.S.S. Mitscher, to retrieve the Antikythera. When you arrived, however, you found the ship under attack. Arachnos had discovered the Mitscher's location, and had stolen the Antikythera. You fought off the remaining soldiers and spoke with Lastri, who believed that Captain Mako might have betrayed you.

You went straight to Grandville, the heart of the Isles, to confront Mako in person. Bemused by your boldness and seeking to retain your trust, Mako informed you that Black Scorpion was involved in the attack on the Mitscher. He even accompanied you for an assault on Black Scorpion's base, though you got the feeling he had other, more personal motives for doing so.

Together, you and Mako retrieved the Antikythera, and you brought it back to Doctor Harvan. Harvan led you to his lab, which he claimed had been built based on designs his father had left behind. Harvan activated the device inside, which began to draw in the released energies of Pandora's Box.
