I wish to make you a formal introduction to one of my colleagues.

Level 20-24

There's a wise old man named Dr. Cheng who knows just about everything there is to know about the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. He has access to Training Enhancements.

Dr. Cheng is very wise, Hero. Pay close attention to his words.

Claire Childress is as much a part of the spirit world as our own. Some say she's flighty, but there are few in Paragon City who can provide more aid to one who seeks to battle the Freakshow or the Family. Claire has access to Training Enhancements.

+++ Missing Information +++

I'd love for you to meet Polly Cooper. She's a coordinator for the Civil Air Patrol, and she knows a lot about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Polly has access to Training Enhancements.

Miss Cooper is very skilled at her job and should prove to be a valuable asset to you.

I know a guy named Kevin Cordell who runs a small security consulting business. He's heard about you and would like to talk sometime about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Kevin used to be a hero, and he still has access to Training Enhancements.

Kevin is not easily impressed, but I think you will do just fine with him, Character.

I'd like you to meet Oswald Cuthbert. He's a probation officer and thus has a lot of contact with the sordid side of Paragon City. He often uses heroes like you to help him out with the Sky Raiders and the Council. Oswald can get you Training Enhancements.

Good choice, Character, and good hunting

Wil Eziquerra is an excellent reporter who specialized in stories on the Sky Raiders and the Council. His sources usually keep him stocked up with Training Enhancements.

Wil is going to be a great resource for you, Character.

I have to admit that Georgia Fields doesn't have the best reputation. No one really knows how she gets her information, but she's an excellent source on the Sky Raiders and the Lost. She is usually able to get her hands on training enhancements.

If you are careful, Georgia can be of great assistance to you.

I think you should meet Andrew Fiore. Not only can he sell you quality electronics, but he's got information about lots of less savory business deals. He's helped more than a few heroes, especially with information about the Freakshow and the Family. Andrew has a lot of sources that give him access to Training Enhancements.

Andrew is a businessman first, but it's in his best interest to keep the heroes he works with up to date on information.

I think you should talk to Vic Garland. He's a civil rights activist who's doing some important work against the Freakshow. He's also more than a little curious about the Family. He could really use your help. Vic has access to Training Enhancements.

Vic is uncompromising and fiercely loyal.

I've been asked to introduce you to Lt. Gosford from the Paragon City Police Department. He runs a special unit that is focused on bringing down the Sky Raiders and the Council. Gosford's connections within the department give him access to Training Enhancements.

Gosford is used to working with heroes. You will get along fine.

My friend Justin Greene has asked to see you. He's a coordinator for his local community watch group. He used to be a hero, so he knows how to help you clean up groups like the Sky Raiders and the Council. Justin has access to Training Enhancements.

I think Justin will like you a great deal, Character.

If you can gain his confidence, Oliver Haak is a rich source of information on the occult. Don't be put off by his demeanor, Character, I know that you will impress him. He can really help you out against the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. Oliver has access to Training Enhancements.

Your actions will speak for you with Oliver.

I'd like you to go see my friend Piper Irving. She's an anthropologist working here in the city. She knows a ton about the obscure beliefs of the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. Piper knows where to get Training Enhancements.

I am sure you will find Piper quite knowledgeable.

Detective Rondel Jackson is a great guy to talk to if you want the police perspective on groups like the Sky Raiders and the Council. He's also the one to talk to if you need Training Enhancements.
+++ Missing Information +++
Missing rest of text

I have no doubt you will enjoy working with Professor Keller

Although he is a bit eccentric, Joseph Keller has a great deal of knowledge. He can greatly aid anyone who wishes to go up against the Banished Pantheon or the Circle of Thorns. Professor Keller has access to Training Enhancements.

If you ever have a computer problem or want a lead on some computer related crime, you should talk to Justine Kelly. She's a whiz at technical stuff and a bit of an online hero in her own right. Lately she has been focusing her attention on the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Justine has access to Training Enhancements.

Justine is a very skilled young lady.

There's a noted weapons expert named Jake Kim who's in town trying to stop the spread of illegal weaponry. He is focusing his efforts on the Freakshow and the Family. Jake has access to Training Enhancements.

Jake has a very specific agenda, but he can still help you clean up Paragon City.

I've been asked to tell you that Lt. Colonel Hugh McDougal of the Pentagon's Hero Outreach Program would like to meet with you about the Freakshow and the Family. His military connections give him access to Training Enhancements.

This could provide excellent connections for you in the future, Character.

If you are looking for a partner to help you take down the Banished Pantheon, Andrea Mitchell would be a great choice. She is very dedicated and her connections are top notch. She also has a lot of interest in the Circle of Thorns. Andrea has access to Training Enhancements.

I have a good feeling about you and Andrea.

Melanie Peebles has the power to see things through her dreams. Her most recent dreams have been about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Melanie has access to Training Enhancements.

Do not dismiss Melanie's guidance lightly.

Have you ever heard of Wilma Peterson from the Department of Waste Management? She's one of the folks in charge of disposing of hazardous waste, like Rikti technology. You should stop by and see her sometime; she's got her eye on the Freakshow and the Family right now. Wilma has access to Training Enhancements.

Treat Wilma with respect and you will have a solid contact.

Cain Royce is strongly committed to his crusade against the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. You would do well to have him as an ally. Cain can get you Training Enhancements.

Paragon City's evil-doers will soon feel the weight of this choice.

I think you should talk to John Strobel from the Citizen Defense Coalition. It's a group of ex-military and law enforcement officers that helps heroes like you from time to time. Right now their attention is focused on the Sky Raiders and the Council. John has a few sources that can get him Training Enhancements.

John is very patriotic and somewhat idealistic, but he's got a keen eye for trouble.

I've been asked to keep this very quiet, but someone from the CIA wants to meet you. Her name is Kirsten Woods and she knows quite a bit about the Sky Raiders. She also thinks there may be more to the Lost than meets the eye. As a CIA operative, Agent Woods has access to Training Enhancements.

Keep a low profile when you are working with Kirsten.

Level 25-29

I'd like you to introduce yourself to Ashwin Lannister from Hero Corps. They may be a for-profit organization, but they get the job done. He is currently focused on the Council and the Warriors. He has access to Training Enhancements.

Hero Corps doesn't always get the best press, but they are effective. Good luck, and keep your eyes open.

There's a woman named Laurie Pennington over at the Freedom Corps who'd like to meet you. Apparently, she's heard good things. She can provide excellent information about the Council and the Warriors. She has access to Training Enhancements.

The work that Laurie and the Freedom Corps are doing is exemplary.

Information

Researcher for Midnight Squad

The Midnight Squad is but a shadow of its former self, having lost many of his most powerful heroes during the war. Now its members concern themselves mainly with research, the preservation of knowledge and advising more active heroes. Hinckley Rasmussen is a primary example of this new trend. A longtime researcher for the Midnight Squad, he has only recently begun to speaking to heroes outside the secretive mystic organization. Now he´s come to enjoy helping others quite a bit. He´s a charming, somewhat eccentric fellow who gives advice even when it´s not asked for. These days his research focuses mostly on the activities of the Tsoo, altough he also has an abiding interest in the Warriors.

Prior to Introduction

Sorry, I'm quite busy just now. I believe Active Contact has need of you, though.

Initial Contact

There is every indication that the Tsoo are gathering their forces. Your timing is most fortuitous.

The Tsoo Coup (20-24)

Souvenir

Tsoo Dagger

You've kept this ancient Tsoo dagger as a reminder of the time you thwarted:

The Tsoo Coup

It all began when you took to the streets to battle the Tsoo of Independence Port and Talos Island. During these skirmishes, you learned that the Tsoo were planning a takeover of Paragon City. You also discovered a tube containing the blueprints to five buildings. You took the blueprints to Agent Warren Trudeau of the FBI, who promised he would identify the buildings for you.

Shortly afterwards, your contact got word of a large shipment of artifacts in the hands of the Tsoo. You went to recover these artifacts, only to find out that the rumors were nothing but a trap designed to snare some of the more powerful members of the Warriors.

When Agent Trudeau learned the identities of the buildings, you realized that three were Family front companies and two were probable Warriors' hangouts. The Tsoo attacked them all within hours, but quick action on your part prevented the Tsoo from annihilating their targets.

Furious at his failure to take over the gangs of Paragon City, Tub Ci ordered a hit on you, but no one has yet been bold enough to take the contract.

Hit the streets of Talos Island and take down as many Tsoo as you can

Briefing

I'm worried about the Tsoo. My sources tell me those power hungry gangsters have some big plan in the works, but nobody seems to know anything specific. I think you should hit the streets of Talos Island and take down as many Tsoo as you can. Maybe one of them will give us a clue about their next move. When you're done clearing Talos, move on to Independence Port.

Mission Acceptance

We're gonna need some solid stuff to go on, but I'm sure you can find it.

Question Tsoo in Talos Island

Unnecessary Solicitation

The seers over at MAGI have alerted me to a potential problem with the Tsoo. There's a huge concentration of Tsoo ancestral spirits over in Talos Island, and their presence threatens to tear apart the mystical fabric of that zone. I need a hero who can get to Talos Island and cull the numbers of the Tsoo. Maybe we can keep Talos Island in one piece.

Mission Acceptance

Helen Point and New Sparta are hotbeds of Tsoo activity. I recommend starting near those neighborhoods.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Question Tsoo in Talos Island
    • Defeat 20 Tsoo

You've defeated enough Tsoo in Talos Island.

Icon clue generic.png
Tsoo conversation
One of the Tsoo you took down bragged:

'You cannot possibly stop all of us! The Tsoo are taking over very soon! Tub Ci is gonna run all of Paragon City, and there is nothing you 'heroes' can do about it!'

Grill Tsoo in Independence Port

Unnecessary Solicitation

We need hard evidence on what the Tsoo are up to.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Grill Tsoo in Independence Port
    • Defeat 15 Tsoo

On the body of one of the fallen Tsoo, you found a tube containing several sets of blueprints.

Icon clue generic.png
Blueprints
You found this tube on a Tsoo gangster. It containing blueprints to five buildings in Paragon City.

Debriefing

I don't recognize any of the buildings in these blueprints that the Tsoo gangster was carrying. We'll have to continue this line of investigation.

Take the blueprints to Warren Trudeau

Briefing

I know this guy in the FBI, Warren Trudeau. He might be able to ID the buildings the Tsoo are interested in. Take the blueprints over to Warren, won't you, Character?

Mission Acceptance

It's kinda scary how many blueprints are here. Looks like the Tsoo could be planning something big.

Unnecessary Solicitation

I called Warren to let him know you are coming. He's expecting those blueprints right away.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Take blueprints to Trudeau

Debriefing

If you found these blueprints on a Tsoo gangster, they're probably planning a strike. I'll have someone at the bureau compare the blueprints to the city planner's files. If a match comes up, I'll let you know.


Debriefing

Thanks for getting those blueprints over to Warren. I'm sure he'll be able to ID the buildings the Tsoo are interested in.

Search the Tsoo base for the artifacts

Briefing

One of my sources called me with some disturbing news. It seems the Tsoo have amassed quite an impressive array of artifacts lately; it's the type of stuff the Outcasts and the Warriors go crazy over. Can you go search this Tsoo base for the artifacts? Thanks, Character. I hear the leader of the base is called Copperhead. See if you can find out what he's plotting.

Mission Acceptance

Warren hasn't yet been able to ID the buildings in those blueprints you found on the Tsoo. The minute I learn something, I'll let you know.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Have you been to that base yet? I want to know what the Tsoo are up to!

Mission Objective(s)

You hear the grunts and shouts of young men engaged in earnest battle. You may have stumbled into the middle of a gang war.

  • Defeat Copperhead and his crew
    • Search for clues

You defeated Copperhead and uncovered the trap laid for the Warriors.

Documents
These documents detail a five-pronged Tsoo strike against the Family and the Warriors.

Enemies

Notable NPCs

Debriefing

So there were no artifacts at that Tsoo base at all, just a trap for the Warriors? Sorry I got you mixed up in this, but I think that your presence prevented the Tsoo from gaining further ground. According to these documents you found, the Tsoo are trying to take down both the Warriors and the Family! Character, we could be looking at a major showdown.

Stop the Tsoo from taking over all the gangs of Paragon City

Briefing

Warren Trudeau just got back to me. He's ID'd all the buildings in those blueprints you found on the Tsoo. Three of them are front companies for Family operations. The other two are over on Talos Island. They're empty right now, which makes them perfect meeting places for the Warriors.

It looks like the Tsoo are planning a major hit on both the Family and the Warriors. Character, get out there and stop the Tsoo from taking over all the gangs of Paragon City!

Mission Acceptance

See if you can get some more heroes to help you with this one. I am afraid that if the Tsoo are successful, Tub Ci will be mayor of Paragon City tomorrow.

Note

While the following missions have primary objectives involving the gang leaders, none of the missions have named bosses. Clearing the final room will fulfill the primary objective.

Bust gang leaders, their crews

Unnecessary Solicitation

I need you and anyone who can help you to stop the Tsoo before it's too late! Hurry!

Mission Objective(s)

You enter with caution. This place has long been a suspected hideout of the Family.

  • Bust gang leaders, their crews
    • Unlock back room

Sounds like Marko Slow-Eye is their next target. Sorry, Character, but if I were you, I wouldn't expect him to be grateful for your interference.

Mission Objective(s)

On the floor, you spot a set of wire clippers and an annotated set of floor plans. Perhaps the Tsoo are setting up a more explosive hit than normal.

  • Bust gang leaders, their crews
    • Disarm bomb, Unlock back room

You defeated all the villains in the third building.

You're in Warrior territory now, and they won't be happy to see you.

  • Bust gang leaders, their crews

You defeated all the villains in the fourth building.

Enemies

Bust gang leaders, their crews

Unnecessary Solicitation

This last place is an office building, so there might be innocents around. Protect them above all else.

Mission Objective(s)

This ordinary office building houses the final battle of this marathon campaign. The Tsoo are almost thwarted.

  • Bust gang leaders, their crews
    • 6 hostages remaining

You have prevented the Tsoo from taking over the gangs of Paragon City.

Notable NPCs

  • 6 Office Workers (Hostages)


Enemies

Debriefing

To be honest, for a minute there I wasn't sure you could thwart the Tsoo campaign to take over the other gangs. Guess you showed me!

You did an excellent job today, Character. If not for you, the Tsoo would have quickly established utter dominance over the streets of Paragon City. I heard through the grapevine that their leader, Tub Ci, ordered a hit on you. Don't worry, no one has been bold enough to step forward and take that contract. Not after the world of hurt you put on the Tsoo today.

Missions

Assist the Security Chief in Independence Port

Briefing

Time to take a bite out of crime. The Security Chief in Indy Port wants some help with those scumbags from the Family. Go lend him a hand.

Mission Acceptance

If you get a chance, take a look at the Statue of Wavelength near the water. She was a speedster who fell in the Rikti War.

Assist the Security Chief

Unnecessary Solicitation

+++ Missing Information +++

Mission Objective(s)

  • Assist the Security Chief

Briefing

Here's some information on the area. We've been having a lot of trouble with the Family, especially in Crey Cove and Bell Point. I really need you to lend a hand.


Icon clue generic.png
Independence Port briefing
This is where many brave heroes defended the city against an invading space armada back in the 50's. Paragon City renamed the area Independence Port, in honor of the heroes who died in that epic battle. You'll see the big statue of Cassiopeia by the bridge; she was one of the famous heroes who died in that fight. It's a shame that organized crime runs the docks nowadays. The Family pulls all the strings here, despite the best efforts of law enforcement.

The conflict between the Warriors and the Tsoo for dominance over Talos Island is endangering innocents. The Security Chief over there wants your help.

Mission Acceptance

Both those bands of thugs need a lesson.

Assist Security Chief

Unnecessary Solicitation

+++ Missing Information +++

Mission Objective(s)

  • Assist Security Chief

Briefing

I need you to confront the Tsoo and the Warriors. Here are some basics about the area. If I were you, I'd look for the Tsoo in Helen Point or New Sparta. New Thebes and New Troy are typical Warrior hangouts.


Icon clue generic.png
Talos Island briefing
During the 1950's, the titanic hero Talos fought to save the city from a horrid beast called the Chimera. Talos wrestled the protean creature into the deepest waters of the bay, and their struggles somehow set off a volcano in the waters. Talos was killed, and the island created by the lava flow was named after him. Recently, a couple of gangs have been squaring off for Talos Island turf: the Warriors and the Tsoo. The Warriors have a fixation with gladiators; they carry swords and are often superb soldiers. The Tsoo seem to be a gang with some magical might behind them.

Discourage gang war

  • Discourage gang war
    • Defeat 10 Tsoo and 10 Warriors

That should quiet things down for a bit. Talos Island is in for a long war, I'm afraid.

Deliver package to Stephanie Peebles

Briefing

Have you ever been over to Striga Isle, Character? There's a woman there named Stephanie Peebles who needs our help. She's got all she can do trying to hold Port Noble together against the onslaught of the Council. Will you take this package over to Stephanie? I'd appreciate it if you didn't look inside. Oh, you might want to take some friends. It can get pretty dicey over there.

Mission Acceptance

The Council has managed to entrench itself on Striga Isle but good. If you can give Stephanie any assistance against them, I'm sure she'll be grateful. Of course, I hope you won't forget about your old friends here in Paragon City. We'll always be grateful for your help, too.

Here's the package. It's for Stephanie's eyes only.

Icon clue generic.png
Mysterious package
This package, intended for Stephanie Peebles, has a strange scent. Try as you might, you can't quite place it.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Stephanie's waiting for that package.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Go see Stephanie Peebles

Debriefing

Thanks for the package, Character; I'm grateful. So, what do you think of Port Noble? Doesn't look like much, maybe? Well, it's my home. I've been doing what I can to kick those Council goons out, but I need more help. I'd appreciate it if you could stick around.

Otherwise, you can keep following leads from your other contacts. I'll always be here, and I'll always be grateful for assistance.


EdLetter.png Editor's Note:

There is no debriefing from your original contact for this mission and no experience is given for it. Additionally, the mission will drop off your mission list automatically and you are not required to return to your contact to remove it. This is because it is intended to be an introduction to the contact Stephanie Peebles, and the Striga Isle arcs by extension.

Get the Platonic Solids away from the Warriors

Briefing

The Warriors recently got their hands on the Platonic Solids. They're ancient ritual tools of the Cult of Pythagoras, which practiced an abstract branch of magic based around geometry and geometric mathematics. A single solid is potentially capable of folding reality, time, and probability. I need someone to get the Platonic Solids away from the Warriors before they accidentally unfold space and time. You only have 90 minutes to recover the artifacts.

Mission Acceptance

There's a rumor that the Warrior leader behind those thefts is trying to revive the Pythagorean cult.

Unnecessary Solicitation

If the Warriors learn how to use the Platonic Solids, it could mean a lot of trouble. Get them out of their hands.

Temporary Power

I do have these for you, a set of Geometric Gauntlets. They were made to allow someone to handle the Platonic Solids safely, but they have an additional use. They can temporarily fold space around an enemy, holding him in place.

Temporary GeometricGauntlets.png Geometric Gauntlets Ranged, Foe Immobilize, -Fly
This Geometric Gauntlet creates a localized gravitational field strong enough to immobilize a single foe. The target can still attack, but cannot move. It is also powerful enough to bring down flying entities. There are 75 charges.

Mission Objective(s)

The grafitti on the walls has a strange geometric precision.

  • Defeat gang leader and his crew (Timed, 90 minutes)
    • 4 Platonic Solids to recover

You have defeated the Warriors and recovered the Platonic Solids.

Platonic icosahedron

Icon clue generic.png
Platonic octahedron
This eight-sided crystal is cracked and dark.

Debriefing

You make the hardest fights seem easy. The Platonic Solids are safe, and you managed it before the Warriors did any damage with them. Actually, my MAGI contacts tell me we were pretty lucky. The Octahedron was cracked centuries ago, and the most powerful Platonic Solid, the Dodecahedron, was lost in the destruction of the Library of Alexandria. Still, if they'd learned enough, the Warriors might have been able to make new ones. The city owes you again.

Go to Independence Port and take back some territory from the Tsoo

Briefing

The Tsoo have been gaining a lot of territory in Independence Port, and it's causing a lot of problems. The port is Family territory, and every time the two gangs meet, it ends in violence. I need you to get over to Independence Port and take back some territory from the Tsoo. It could stop a lot of needless bloodshed.

The Tsoo have been making headway in Bell Point and Wave Landing. Maybe you should start in those neighborhoods.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Take territory in Independence Port
    • Defeat 20 Tsoo

Debriefing

The Tsoo are bound and determined to tread on every other gang's toes. Let's just make sure they don't leave a wave of destruction in their wake.

Go to Talos Island and cull the numbers of the Tsoo

Briefing

The seers over at MAGI have alerted me to a potential problem with the Tsoo. There's a huge concentration of Tsoo ancestral spirits over in Talos Island, and their presence threatens to tear apart the mystical fabric of that zone. I need a hero who can get to Talos Island and cull the numbers of the Tsoo. Maybe we can keep Talos Island in one piece.

Helen Point and New Sparta are hotbeds of Tsoo activity. I recommend starting near those neighborhoods.

Hit the streets and defeat a few Warriors

Briefing

The Warriors have been spreading rumors that they have some kind of new invincible fighting technique. I doubt that this new technique really exists, but the rumors are enough to worry a lot of people. I need a hero to hit the streets and defeat a few Warriors to show that this invincible technique isn't. They're supposed to be teaching this technique all over Talos Island, but defeating Warriors anywhere should still be a good demonstration.

Mission Acceptance

The Warriors can be dangerous, but they aren't invincible. I know you can take them.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Disprove Warrior invincibility

Good job. You showed that the Warriors' invincible technique was nothing more than delusional fiction. The rumors have died down, and people can breathe easy again.

Hit the streets and take on a few Tsoo

Briefing

The Tsoo are recruiting in earniest these days. If they grow much larger, we may not be able to deal with them effectively. I need you to hit the streets and take on a few Tsoo. If you show people that the Tsoo aren't as tough as they look, maybe they won't be so eager to join up.

You can usually find Tsoo in Talos Island or Independence Port.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat Tsoo menace
    • Defeat 20 Tsoo

Enemies

Badge villain tsoo.png Tsoo

I think you got the message out. Nobody will want to join the Tsoo if they know that you are on their case.

Investigate the meetings between the Warriors and the Tsoo

Briefing

The Tsoo and the Warriors have been meeting all over the city for the last few days. The strange thing is that we haven't seen any violence. Those groups are planning something, and I want to find out what. I need you to investigate the meetings between the Warriors and the Tsoo.

Mission Acceptance

Be ready for anything in there.

Bust gang leaders and their crews

Unnecessary Solicitation

I'm counting on you to figure out what's going on between the Tsoo and the Warriors.

Mission Objective(s)

You hear the sounds and scuffles of combat, but they lack any real urgency.

  • Bust gang leaders and their crews

On one of the defeated Warriors, you found an invitation to a tournament between the Warriors and the Tsoo.

Tournament invitation
This spartan note is an invitation to a tournament between the members of the Warriors and the Tsoo. It lists several locations and times, including an island known to be occupied by the Warriors. It states that the prize is a treatise on hand to hand combat written by Alexander the Great.


Defeat the combatants

Unnecessary Solicitation

So, this was all about a tournament between the Warriors and the Tsoo? It may be a good idea to put a stop to this. If one side doesn't like the way it ends, it could escalate beyond a mere competition.

Mission Objective(s)

The air rings with the sounds of men cheering on their favored fighters

  • Defeat the combatants
    • 6 battles to stop

You have stopped the tournament between the Warriors and the Tsoo.

Debriefing

Breaking up that tournament probably saved lives in the end. Neither the Tsoo nor the Warriors really know how to lose gracefully. The real shame is that they couldn't put their strength to better use, like you do. So, just in case no one's said it recently, thank you. On behalf of all Paragon City, thank you.

Recover the stolen artwork from the Tsoo

Briefing

An exhibit of artwork by the painter Jessica Frank has been stolen. I've learned that the Tsoo were behind it, and they have the art stored in a warehouse. I need someone to recover the stolen artwork from the Tsoo.

Mission Acceptance

Jessica Frank's work isn't very valuable, but I've heard the theft was ordered by Tub Ci himself.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You need to recover that stolen artwork before the Tsoo can sell it.

Mission Objective(s)

The crates that line the walls are probably full of stolen goods.

  • Defeat art thief and his crew
    • 4 paintings to find

You beat the Tsoo and recovered the stolen art.

Debriefing

Wow, look at this painting! Is that a Tsoo ancestral spirit? Yes, look at the exhibit tag. It actually describes the process for summoning such a spirit. No wonder the Tsoo wanted to keep these paintings from being displayed!

Rescue Dizzy Frankley from the Tsoo

Defeat kidnapper and his crew

Briefing

The famous singer Dizzy Frankley has gone missing! Her agent, Charlie Sparks, thinks the Tsoo may have kidnapped her. I need you to rescue Dizzy Frankley from the Tsoo. I don't know what they want with her, but I'm sure it isn't pleasant.

See if you can find out why the Tsoo would kidnap a singer.

Mission Objective(s)

The air is heavy with the scents of moldering office furniture and the street drug called Rage.

  • Defeat kidnapper and his crew
    • Find Dizzy Frankley

Dizzy Frankley's story
When you rescued Dizzy Frankley, she told you:

"I guess it was the pressure of the celebrity life that made me start taking Rage. Before I knew it, I was in over my head! The Tsoo wanted more money, and I just didn't have it! They said if I couldn't pay, they'd make an example of me. They were going to force me to participate in a Tsoo Fox Hunt!"

Note from Dizzy Frankley
Dizzy Frankley asked you to give this note to her agent, Charlie Sparks.


Take note to Charlie Sparks

Mission Objective(s)

  • Take note to Charlie Sparks

Debriefing

Dizzy's okay? Whew, thanks, Character. It says here that the Tsoo wanted to make her participate in their next fox hunt. Have you heard of those, Character? The Tsoo pump some poor soul full of Rage, release her, then hunt her down! They rarely kill the fox, but the hunts usually end in brutal beatings. It's a good thing you rescued Dizzy when you did!


Debriefing

Believe it or not, Tsoo fox hunts usually involve willing prey. Some gangsters consider playing the fox a testament to their courage and wit. But I'm not surprised the Tsoo would try to force Dizzy Frankley into a hunt as punishment for failing to pay her debt. Nice rescue, Character.

Rescue Isabella Carter from the Tsoo

Briefing

See Dark Astoria Security Chief

Briefing

I need you to report to the Security Chief for Dark Astoria and help fight the Banished Pantheon. He didn't give me any details, but he sounded swamped.

Dark Astoria can get under your skin if you let it. Just focus on the job at hand.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Assist the Dark Astoria Security Chief

Briefing

The Pantheon is causing a lot of trouble around here, especially in Romero Heights and Raimi Arcade. Take this briefing and get out there.


Icon clue generic.png
Dark Astoria briefing
The maps say 'Astoria', but this place has always been 'Dark Astoria' to the people of Paragon City. The cemetery up there dates back to the prehistoric era, and there's sort of a spooky quality to it. Of course, very few people go in there anymore—not since the dead started crawling out of the ground! We're pretty sure it's the Banished Pantheon behind it all. They've got the magic to do it. You get rid of a few zombies, more come back. Even worse, there's a giant zombie in there. That's why the authorities have abandoned the place. Heroes should go in there only in small teams.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep the peace in Dark Astoria
    • Defeat 20 Banished Pantheon

+++ Missing Information +++

You seem to have come through that all right. You have nerves of steel.

See Siren's Call Liaison

Briefing

I don't know if you realized this, but as we speak, Paragon City is under assault. Over in Siren's Call, Lord Recluse and his men are making every effort to get themselves a foothold. If we let them manage it, we'll be in serious trouble. I'd appreciate it if you'd go speak with the Longbow Warzone Liaison over in Steel Canyon. She could use the help of heroes like you.

Siren's Call is a PVP zone, where you may be killed by other players.

Mission Acceptance

The Warzone Liaison can help you get the right contacts in Siren's Call.

Unnecessary Solicitation

The Warzone Liaison wants to speak to you about Siren's Call.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Warzone Liaison

Debriefing

If you're ready to take on a real challenge, you can be a big help to Longbow here in Siren's Call. We have to push Arachnos out. If you're willling, you can talk to Agent Brinson. He's got a number of missions that will swing the battle in Longbow's favor. Or you can talk to the Security Chief at the Longbow Base; he can tell you all about bounties.

Siren's Call is a PVP zone. If you enter, you may be killed by other players. Do not enter if you are not willing to risk this.


Debriefing

I hope the Warzone Liaison gave you the info you need to help out in Siren's Call. It would be a shame to lose that zone to Arachnos.

Show the Warriors they aren't the ruling power in Talos Island

Briefing

The Warriors have been out on the streets of Talos Island in force lately, trying to exert their control over the city zone. They've been harassing the locals, defacing city property, and generally causing a lot of havoc. Someone needs to show them that they aren't the ruling power in Talos Island.

New Thebes and New Troy are typical Warrior hangouts. You could look for them there.

    • Defeat 20 Warriors

The Warriors don't stand a chance against you. Your dogged persistence has served you well.

Take the fight to the Warriors

Briefing

A new wave of Warrior recruits have just hit the streets, and they're already terrorizing all of Talos Island. I'm looking for a hero brave enough to take the fight right back to the Warriors. If that gang grows much larger, it may become impossible to contain.

Mission Acceptance

The Warriors have been doing a lot of recruiting in New Thebes and New Troy. You might want to start in those neighborhoods.

Unnecessary Solicitation

I want you to take down a few more Warriors, Character. That gang is growing by leaps and bounds.

  • Combat Warriors in Talos Island
    • Defeat 20 Warriors

Even the wildest of the Warriors have started to get apprehensive whenever you're around, Character.
