Part One: Culling the Chaos

Mission Briefing

The streets of Brickstown are in chaos, Character. We're getting reports of all sorts of criminals on the loose, ranging from your petty Hellion thugs to Crey scientists, all the way up to costumed villains.

These people think that they can transform the city into their world. The PPD are doing their best, but there's only so much they can do. It's time for the New Praetorians to make a show of force.

We're going to hit these criminals hard and fast and show them that we stand for order and law!

  • We're on it. Tell me where one of the hotspots are.

We've got word that there's focused activity around the the Brickstown bank.

Riptide and Alec Parson are working on an issue with some Crey scientists. The rest of us will meet at our base to form a game plan. We've got a gang of villains robbing the bank, the Freakshow tearing up the place, the Hellions burning down a building full of civilians, and a group of Nemesis soldiers who are making an escape in the middle of the city.

It's a lot to handle, but we can do it, Character, with you leading the charge!

Briefing

Alright, Character, here's the situation topside.

We've got the Freakshow running rampant in a nearby warehouse.

The Nemesis army punched a hole in the city streets with one of their machines; they're attempting to make an escape route for their soldiers.

The Hellions have begun burning down an office building with civilians trapped inside.

Finally, we've got a band of villains robbing the Brickstown bank with the Council backing them.

There's a lot to do, but you've got the New Praetorians here to help you out. We don't know these groups as well as you do; we need you to direct what everyone should take care of. We'll leave saving the bank to you.

  • (Assign Pendragon's role)
Pendragon's main skill is his strength, Character. His armor can allow him to withstand a beating, and his sword can swipe down anyone in his way. However, he is somewhat weak when it comes to enemies who use advanced tactics.
You know that the Nemesis army employ a lot of tactics in their fighting. The Freakshow rely on brute force. The office building will be covered in smoke, so you'll need someone who can sense where people are in order to save all the hostages.
  • Pendragon, save those people from the burning building.
Pendragon heads off to handle the burning building.
  • Pendragon, take care of the Freakshow.
Pendragon leaves to fight the Freakshow.
  • Pendragon, stop the Nemesis army from escaping.
Pendragon goes off to stop the Nemesis army.
  • (Assign Aurora's role)
Aurora's main skill is her telepathy. If there's someone that needs to be found, she can do it. She won't fare very well against brute force or direct combat with enemies using tactics.
You know that the Nemesis army employ a lot of tactics in their fighting. The Freakshow rely on brute force. The office building will be covered in smoke, so you'll need someone who can sense where people are in order to save all the hostages.
  • Aurora, find those people in the burning building.
Aurora heads off to handle the burning building.
  • Aurora, take care of the Freakshow.
Aurora leaves to fight the Freakshow.
  • Aurora, stop the Nemesis army from escaping.
Aurora goes off to stop the Nemesis army.
  • (Assign Grant's role)
Grant's main skills are his advanced tactics. He doesn't have a large amount of brute force, but his time in the IDF has taught him how to maneuver in a battlefield.

  • Grant, take care of the Freakshow.
Grant leaves to fight the Freakshow.
  • Grant, stop the Nemesis army from escaping.
'Grant goes off to stop the Nemesis army.
  • I'm ready to head off.

Good luck, Character, we're counting on you!

  • Thanks, Marchand.


Briefing

Good work on the bank, Character. The others have all reported in on the status of their tasks.

  • Tell me Pendragon's status.

Pendragon was able to handle the Freakshow easily. They came at him with brute force, but Pendragon's might defeated them in the end.

  • Tell me Aurora's status.

The Hellions were a mere hiccup for Aurora. As soon as she entered the building, she disabled all of them, then found all of the victims within minutes.

  • Tell me Grant's status.

Grant Creston's combat training outmatched those of the Nemesis army; he saw all their attacks from a mile away. All of the members of the army are back in the Zig.

  • That's it. Anything else to report?

That's it, for now. You did a great job in figuring out the strengths and weaknesses of the team, Character.

Your next goal will be to track down a group of villains. We have reports that they fled into a nearby cavern with a group of Council.

In the meantime, we'll be splitting up the team, but be aware that they may contact you for further support.

  • Understood.


Badge

After correctly assigning the New Praetorians to their tasks (Pendragon --> Freakshow, Aurora --> Hellions, Grant --> Nemesis), you will be awarded the Long Arm of the Law Badge.

Attack on Peregrine Island
You took down all of the super-powered villains in the base and discovered some more plans from the Council.

It appears that they freed a large number of the IDF from the Zig and helped them commandeer a naval cruiser! The group plans on opening fire on Peregrine Island. What's worse is that they're going to plant evidence to make it seem like it was a plot done by the New Praetorians!

According to this, their first plan is to establish a front on a beach in Peregrine, then launch an all out assault!

Debriefing

Character, Calvin Scott just sent me a direct message with images. His Unified People's Army and the Council have captured all of the New Praetorians. Marauder... Riptide... Grant... everyone is under their control. They're trying to send a message, Character. I thought it was to me, but it looks like it's directly to you.

They've made one request and one request only, which is that you hand yourself over in exchange of the lives of the New Praetorians.

Vanguard has evacuated anyone who wasn't injured in the attack on Refugee Island; the rest are in a Vanguard hospital. We're reporting no deaths, but that's only due to the hardiness of the people and not for any sort of 'care' that Calvin Scott may have taken.
