Mission:The Shining Stars - With Friends Like These: Hell Hath More Fury Than You Thought
Hell Hath More Fury Than You Thought
Alright,. As our last mission has made painfully clear, we've started to get into situations that are a bit over our heads. Don't get me wrong, we've done a damn fine job so far, given the circumstances. You just don't get many second chances in this line of work, you know?
Anyway, I want to make sure that when the big threats show up, we're ready to handle them. You and Grym seem to be our top fighters, so I want the two of you to get some practice against some tougher opponents.
- Sounds good to me.
Glad to hear you're on board, kiddo. I talked with a guy from Hero Corps, and he said that he had something for the two of you. Should be tough, but I'm sure you can handle it.
Why don't you head over there now? No time like the present, you know?
Talk to the Hero Corps Field Analyst
What's the holdup, kiddo? You're not having second thoughts about this, are you?
- Talk to the Hero Corps Field Analyst
Welcome to the new Hero Corps Powered Personne- Oh! You're, correct?
- That would be me.
Fantastic. Ms. Twinshot asked me to arrange a slightly more difficult mission for you and Mr. Grym. I've already given him the coordinates for the warehouse; I think he's scouting the place now.
We received reports from MAGI that a group of cultists have started some sort of ritual that would bring a powerful demon into Paragon City. Normally we'd forward this report on to the FBSA, but Ms. Twinshot has assured me that the two of you will be able to handle a mission of this caliber.
- Cultists, huh? Are we talking about the Circle, here?
No, I believe this ritual is being performed by members of the Hellions gang. I'll upload the coordinates to the warehouse where we've tracked-
- Wait, Hellions? This 'difficult mission' has us fighting Hellions?
Sir / +++ Missing Information +++, please do not underestimate the danger of this mission. I realize you've faced Hellions before, and those encounters may not have seemed formidable, but these Hellions are different.
Hero Corps tries its best to make sure that Heroes like yourself get missions that are appropriate for their combat ability, and Ms. Twinshot has assured me that yours is top-notch. That is why you're receiving this task - we wouldn't let a new recruit tackle this mission. Please keep that in mind.
- Alright, I will. Thanks for the warning.
Stop the Hellions' Summoning Ritual!
Hellions, huh? Well, I can't say it's what I expected, but Hero Corps seems to know what they're doing.
Go get 'em, kiddo!
This place has certainly seen better days. You wonder how long the Hellions have made this office their home.
- Stop the Hellions' Summoning Ritual!
- 3 altars to destroy
Destroy the demon before it achieves its full power! Thankfully, you managed to defeat the demon Adross before he reached full power. These were certainly not the same Hellions you're used to.
- Adross the Hateful (Circle of Thorns Behemoth)
Return to the Hero Corps Field Analyst
Wow, kiddo. Those Hero Corps guys don't mess around. Why don't you check in with the Field Analyst for a debriefing?
, you're back! MAGI detected a demonic presence in the area recently - I didn't expect to see you again. How are you faring?
- I'm a little singed, but otherwise fine. The demon has been taken care of.
Ah! Glad to hear it. I guess Ms. Twinshot was correct about your combat capabilities. One moment, please.
The Field Analyst turns from you and pulls out a communicator.
Colonel? You can call off the raid. Yes, the situation's under control... Yes... Colonel... Yes, I understand. I'm sorry I wasted your time.
The Field Analyst shakes his head, puts down the communicator, and turns back to you.
Thanks for dealing with that situation,. It's good to have reliable heroes around that can handle the especially dangerous cases.
- Not a problem.
You know, with your skill, you may want to consider updating your Hero Corps profile. If the missions you get ever feel like they're not quite pushing your limits, or if you find yourself in over your head, you can come talk to any Hero Corps agent.
We're able to fine-tune the difficulty of your missions to match what you think you're capable of handling. If you're up to it, you can take on missions with tougher or more numerous enemies, or even try to tackle an Archvillain. I wouldn't recommend biting off more than you can chew, but you have full control over your own profile.
- Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
Fantastic. Well, I'll let you go. Swing by anytime you want to modify your profile, or even if you just want to review what it already says.
- Alright, I'm off then. See ya.
|Notoriety Contacts are NPCs that can adjust the difficulty of your missions. They can change the level of enemies you fight, how many enemies will appear in the mission, and what ranks of enemies you'll be facing.
With the Notoriety Contacts, you can customize your missions to match the kinds of challenges you want to face!
Hey, kiddo. I guess you and Grym had fun. He seemed a little crispy around the edges, you know?
Seriously, though, Grym was talking you up a few minutes ago. I think you seriously impressed that guy. With fighters like you guys on the team, I think we might just make it through this whole mess.
Speaking of which...
