+++ Missing Information +++
A new hero bounty hunter calling herself Abyss has arrived in Grandville. Supposedly she has taken out a couple of pesky heroes, and now Lord Recluse lets her do whatever it is she does. She's put the word out that she is looking for a few villains to pick up some of the lesser bounties she's been offered. Seems everyone wants someone taken out for some reason or another, and one bounty hunter alone can't do the job.
She's terse and to the point... and she can probably kill you before your brain registered you were in danger. Watch your step with this one.
Have you met Operative Grillo? He's a rather driven man, coordinating SciTech projects for Arachnos. I know he's looking for a few Arachnos loyalists to aid him.
Operative Grillo is a true product of Arachnos propaganda, believing in Lord Recluse's utopian future.
Crey Security Chief
Tavish Bell has worked for Crey for years, so he knows where all the bodies are buried. That information has got him the cushy job of overseeing their outside security contracts. These contracts are with individuals with powers and abilities far beyond that which Crey can muscle together. These contract workers handle the jobs that Crey can't handle for themselves.
Prior to Introduction
Beat it before I call some Protectors here to kick your butt.
You must be my new Contract,. I hope you are up for the tasks at hand.
Finish what you are dealing with first
No More Missions
We're done. Contract's up. Enjoy your pay.
You're doing well.

The Code Merlin
The Code Merlin
Tavish Bell is a Crey representative, who is authorized to contract out jobs deemed too difficult for Crey to handle on its own. One of those jobs happened to be a 'Code Merlin', a magical mishap in one of their labs. When you arrived in the lab you found it to be riddled with smoke and fires, and an air of dread surrounded you. You encountered many possessed scientists and eventually a demonically possessed Paragon Protector. You quickly deduce that this Protector is the cause of all this mess. Crey must have been experimenting with hybriding their Protectors with some demons from the Netherworld, and now you get to pick up the pieces, for a nice paycheck of course.
Tavish informed you of a shipment of weapons being imported from Paragon City to fight off the demons that escaped. Unfortunately the demons found out about this shipment and attacked the cargo ship before it could get to the Rogue Isles. You boarded the ship and secured the weapons, defeating many of the escaped demons in the process. You turned over the weapons to Tavish, so that Crey could finally clean up this mess themselves.
You then met with Tavish and he informed you that even with the weapons you secured, the Crey security was no match for the demons. He had the location of the Archdemon who masterminded everything. He was holed up in a sewer. You fought the Archdemon in the sewer, defeating him and severing the ties that bound his minions to this plane. Crey then made their promised deposit.
NOTE: As of Sept 05 2006, the souvenir text states that you fight the Archdemon in a sewer, but the actual mission is in a modified Crey Technology Lab mission map.
Clean out Crey facility of magical beasties
My bosses just called me. They are having a Code Merlin at one of their facilities. A Code Merlin is an emergency of magical nature. Now you may not be the best to handle this, or maybe you are. We just need the nasties cleared out so we can bring in a containment team.
Code Merlin is pretty serious, so don't expect this to be a bunch of fire imps running around. Oh, and don't spend any time looking around. There are things in there you aren't cleared for.
You've got that Code Merlin to take care of, get to it! And remember not to poke into anything you shouldn't be looking at.
You have a job to do here, but maybe it might be a good idea to poke around a bit, too. You never know what you might learn.
- Clean out Crey Facility
- Poke around
You have defused the situation!
| Editor's Note:|
|You deduce that Crey was trying to create a human-demon hybrid using their Paragon Protectors as hosts.|
|A research file|
|This file contains Crey's research on demonic genetics. It looks like Crey was trying to extract the equivalent of demonic DNA for use in their revenant program. From the looks of things, most of their DNA came from the same source, code-named 'ARCH-A'.|
I'm what they call 'isolated' in the information chain, but what you are telling me is probably true. Calling a Code Merlin like that, then the demon-protector hybrid. And rumor is, something nastier got out before you even got there. Something called ARCH-A, but I don't know what that's about. The Company is probably experimenting with demonology and their Revenant Project, making Protectors who are part demon. And if you ask me that's... pretty cool, actually!
Go to cargo vessel and eliminate demonic infestation
Turns out that a few of those demons and demonic Protectors got out of the facility before you arrived. We have a shipment of 'special' weapons coming in from our factories outside Paragon City, and the cargo ship just called with reports of... strange occurrences. Seems that the demons figured out we're bringing in the big guns. Looks like we're up to hiring you again, , if you want the job.
I'll point you towards a troller that can get you out to the cargo ship.
You need to get to that ship and secure those weapons before the demons can destroy them.
Find the crates before the demons do.
- Eliminate demons, secure cargo
- 2 weapon crates to find
You have recovered all of the demon-fighting weapons.
| Editor's Note:|
|Demon Fighting Weapons|
|You have recovered some weapons used in fighting demons. You are not sure exactly how they WORK though, as they look nothing like normal weapons|
Great. I will get these weapons off to our Crey teams. They should be able to round up the rest of those demons.
Take out the Archdemon
I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is we have located that ARCH-A thing that escaped from the facility before you arrived.
The bad news is that 'ARCH-A' is some kind of Archdemon. And the worse news is, well, he broke back in to the facility! Our Crey security teams who went in there armed to the teeth with those demon-fighting weapons didn't last two minutes against his horde. Crey wants to know if you are up for one last job... take out that Archdemon and send him back to wherever he came from. Oh, and if I were you, I'd bring some friends along for this one. It could be kinda tough.
The Archdemon code-named ARCH-A broke into the former holding facility about an hour ago. We don't think there were any survivors, so it's pretty much a free-fire zone down there. Defeat it, though, and that should do the job. Just remember to bring some others along. This could be bad.
You need to take out the Archdemon before you'll get paid.
You passed the bodies of several Crey guards getting to this point.
- Take out the Archdemon
- Defeat the Archdemon
You have defeated the Archdemon. The threat is over.
- ARCH-A (Archvillain)
Excellent work,, Crey is depositing your fee into your account as we speak.
Crey tasked you with finding out who the hero snooping around Grandville is. You broke into a Council base that had recently been attacked and stole the surveillance tapes which revealed the adversary to be none other than the Freedom Phalanx's speedster-Blaster, Synapse.
Crey's file on Synapse said that he could be bought out, if the price was right. You decided to use some gold doubloons that Arachnos has stored in order to fund the little buyout of Synapse. You put word out to meet with Synapse as soon as you got the doubloons. Once you got them, though, you found out your data was a little out of date. Synapse tried to take you down, but you prevailed, forcing him to use his Medicom to escape.
You found out that Synapse was being helped by the Scrapyarders, and so you decided to send him a little warning by taking down one of their warehouses. In the midst of the battle you overheard two Scrapyarders discussing Synapse's 'protection'. Taking down these 'yarders you found a data file that talked about a Crey demon-making program, which must be why Synapse is in the Rogue Isles to begin with.
This whole artificial demon thing intrigued you, so when Tavish sent you on a simple Malta mission, you blew it off and investigated the Crey facility in Grandville instead. Leaving no witnesses, you uncovered their Demon Seed program, hybriding Paragon Protectors with Demons. During your little escapade, you found out that Mynx followed Synapse from Paragon City. She attempted to stop you, but failed.
Mynx and Longbow were trying to convince Synapse to leave the Rogue Isles before he was in any more danger. You uncovered Mynx's location and decided to put the hurt on her to draw out Synapse. She was tough, but eventually went down. Synapse gets the message now.
While you were taking out Mynx, Synapse was stealing the Demon Seed data from Crey, and they hired you to get it back before Synapse could high-tail it out of the Rogue Isles. You succeeded in defeating him and Mynx before they could leave with the data, and Crey paid you handsomely for your efforts.
Steal surveillance tapes from the Council
So there is a new hero snooping around Grandville. Crey wants to know exactly who we are dealing with, but they don't have good intel on the guy. He recently raided a Council facility however, so perhaps their records can shed light on who we are dealing with. Why don't you visit that facility and grab a copy of their surveillance tapes? That should give us an indication of who is trying to mess with Crey.
Get in there, grab the tapes, and get out. You don't need to mess with those Council goons... unless you want to that is.
You got those tapes yet? We're trying to figure out just who we're dealing with here.
This is the base the hero attacked. Looks like they have got it back up and running pretty quick.
- Steal tapes from the Council
- Locate the tapes
You got the tape, now get back to Tavish Bell.
Tavish plays the tape on a portable video player.
Wow. That guy's fast. Must be a speedster. Let's see if there's even a frame here we can freeze on and get a good look at.
Tavish freezes the image, and you can see the blurry image of Synapse beating a Council warwolf.
Ok... looks like we're dealing with one of the Freedom Phalanx here, Synapse. He's their speedster, but he's also an electrical blaster. Good thing Crey's got you working for them.
Steal gold from Arachnos to bribe Synapse
Ok, so my research into this Synapse character tells me he used to be an average guy. Any normal person can be bought for a price. I found out that Arachnos has got their hands on some gold doubloons from a shipwreck off the coast. If you can steal that, then we can have a nice lump sum that should be able to send Synapse pacing, and leave us alone. I'm going to put the word out for him to meet you once you've got the gold. If he really has left his mercenary days behind him you might be up for a fight though, so be prepared. I'd take a few allies along with you as a backup... just in case.
Once you have the gold, Synapse will find you.
You need to get that gold from Arachnos. Only then will I get word to Synapse to meet you.
This is the warehouse that Arachnos is storing the gold doubloons they uncovered.
- Steal gold from Arachnos
- Find doubloons
- Deal with Synapse
You fended off Synapse's attack.
You did well, but I'm guessing he'll be back. I'd hoped we could buy him off easily, but it looks like that isn't going to work. We are going to have to go about this another way.
Discredit Synapse by dealing with the Scrapyarders
My attempts to learn more about Synapse's history are being stopped by someone higher up, so we'll have to concentrate on taking out who he's working with in the Isles. Get this, he's being helped by the Scrapyarders! Remember them? They've been slipping him info. Of course, if they lose people to someone like you because of it, it might help them get the message. If Synapse loses the help he's receiving, he might just leave the Rogue Isles. Wouldn't that be nice?
Word is that some Scrapyarder representatives have come to Grandville to drop off the latest info. Those guys are way below you, but they'll be guarded by Synapse and those Longbow losers, so there should be some fight there.
You need to deal with those Scrapyarders.
Show the Scrapyarders that helping Synapse is a one-way ticket to painsville.
- Discredit Synapse
- Discredit Synapse
You roughed up the Scrapyarders. Good work.
|Demon Program File|
|One of the Scrayard foremen had a file on him, with evidence that Crey is trying to make artificial demons. Perhaps this is why Synapse is here?|
I don't know if your actions today actually did any good, but its always nice to beat up on Scrapyarders, don't you think?
Lie to Tavish and investigate Crey lab for Demon experiments instead
I've got a pretty easy job for you. I need you to break into a Malta base and steal back a formula they stole from Crey. Pretty cut and dry. Simple. You don't even need to fight anyone if you can help it.
You've done solid work for us,. We expect excellent results here as well.
You got that Malta job done yet? It's pretty cut and dry.
Crey isn't expecting you. Find the info on the demon experiments and leave no witnesses.
- Investigate Crey
- Erase evidence of your presence
- Find Demon Seeds
- Defeat Mynx
You got the Demon Seeds, and left no trace of you being here!
So the stolen formula wasn't even in the Malta base? That's disappointing. I know you must have tried your best. We did have an incident while you were out, though. Someone broke into a Crey lab and stole a project we were working on. We tried to contact you to take care of it, but couldn't get a hold of you.
Take down Mynx and kidnap her
Ok, now we've got two heroes to deal with. Adding Mynx to the equation might make the process for kicking Synapse out of here harder... or easier. Hmm. I think I have just the thing. About a year ago, Crey agents stole the Medicom Teleport IDs of several dozen heroes. We haven't abused this fact yet, so those codes should still be good. Here's the plan: I will outfit a transmitter with an override to her Medicom code. That way, you can take her out and we can hold her hostage until Synapse leaves the Rogue Isles.
Ok, here's the transmitter. This will redirect her to a Crey facility on the north side of the island when she tries to use the Medicom.
I gave you everything you need to beat Mynx and teleport her to the Crey facility.
Here is the transmitter. Don't lose it.
|Tavish Bell gave you a transmitter that will override Mynx's Medicom teleport and redirect her to a Crey facility after you defeat her.|
This is the base that Mynx is using. Find her. Defeat her.
- Take down Mynx, kidnap her
- Defeat Mynx
Mynx has been teleported to the Crey facility.
Good job. Mynx is fuming over in a holding cell in our best facility. We'll make the demands of Synapse and he should be a problem for us no more.
Defeat Synapse, recover what he stole
Well, that was record time. I just got word that Synapse busted Mynx out of the facility. Man, he is fast. Fortunately we planned for this and now know the location where he is hiding out. Looks like he's got what he came for, so he's prepping to bug out. Are you up for a little payback, Crey style? This is a timed mission, you will have 45 minutes to complete it.
See if you can get back what he stole while you're beating the pavement with his face.
Time's a-wasting. Synapse will be off the Rogue Isles soon.
This is where the tracer on Mynx has led you
- Defeat Synapse, recover what he stole
- Defeat Synapse
Failure - Need data
Success - You defeated Synapse!
|Stolen Crey Data|
|The data details the demon experiments that Crey was working on. You figure that this might come in handy in the future.|
Debriefing - Mission Failed
Debriefing - Mission Successful
Excellent job taking down Synapse. It's a shame to hear that you couldn't find the data he stole. At least he's got a black eye to show for his efforts here on the Rogue Isles. You have Crey's thanks, and the payment is going through... now.
