Level 5-9

You should think about talking to Detective Jose Brogan. He's pretty intense, but he's a great cop and a good person to know if you are looking for information on the Lost. His beat is Atlas Park.

Detective Brogan will let you in on some interesting cases.

There's an engineer named Kip Cantorum who knows a lot about illegal technology. You should go see him; he might have some good leads for you on the Vahzilok zombies. Kip's business is in Galaxy City.

Kip should be able to help you.

I'd like you to meet Ron Hughes. He's a reporter, and lately he's been interested in the Skulls. Ron's magazine is located in Kings Row, so that's where he can be found.

Ron believes that science should be used for the good of all.

Juan Jimenez is a great photographer, and he's always got his ear to the ground. You should talk to him and see if he's following any big stories on the Skulls. Juan is currently covering a story in Kings Row.

Juan is always eager to help, and he knows where the action is.

Vic Johansson's good police. He'll steer you towards some interesting opportunities involving the Lost, and help smooth things over with law enforcement. His beat is Kings Row.

Vic is good people, Character. You will enjoy working with him.

You should consider introducing yourself to Laurence Mansfield. He is one of the more personable county coroners. He can be a very helpful resource on the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. He is located in Atlas Park.

Mansfield has a strange sense of humor sometimes.

You ever been to one of Samuel Pierce's parties? He's an event promoter, and he knows how to put on a good time. He also has a nose for trouble. You should meet him, see if he'll give you a tip on the Vahzilok. Mr. Pierce is promoting a new movie over in Kings Row.

Samuel is somewhat cavalier, but he wants the city cleaned up very badly.

There's an EMT named Paco Sanchez who'd like to meet you. He's not only great at his job, but he also works well with heroes, tipping them off whenever he sees something interesting going on with the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. Paco can be found in Galaxy City.

Paco primarily cares about saving lives.

You should introduce yourself to Genevieve Sanders. She's a pharmacist with a heart of gold who does a lot of community work, and she loves to help heroes against the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. Genevieve is near the hospital in Kings Row.

She is one of the nicest people I know.

There's a young reporter named Linda Summers who you might enjoy chatting with. She's always pursuing some crime related story, especially stories dealing with the Skulls. Linda's latest scoop has her in Kings Row.

Linda responds well to directness and fair treatment.

There's a detective who you should meet. Rachel Torres knows all about the happenings on the streets, and can probably give you good leads on the Lost. She can be located in Galaxy City.

Detective Torres is tough and efficient; you might learn a thing or two from her.

Have you heard of Hero Corps? They're a business that matches heroes up with jobs. There's a liaison named Henry Peter Wong there who's taking on new clients. You should chat with him about the Vahzilok menace. Hero Corps has Mr. Wong in Atlas Park.

Wong is pretty gung ho about Hero Corps; there's no denying that he will keep you busy.

Level 10-14

There's a gun dealer named Carla Brunelli who would like to meet you. She's a very responsible, proactive woman who's helped a number of heroes in her time. She is deeply troubled by the Clockwork. Their presence in Skyway City means that she can usually be found there.

Carla is tough but fair.

There's a talented young lawyer named Athena Currie who you should talk to. She's a big community activist and has had some serious run-ins with the Clockwork. Miss Currie practices law in Steel Canyon.

Athena can really use the help of a hero like you.

I know a lawyer, Everett Daniels, who's a pretty good guy. He goes after the big corporations and even the government sometimes, but he's usually on the right side of things. He's always got a lead on the Clockwork. Mr. Daniels' practice is in Skyway City.

Everett will get you into the thick of things.

Information

Defense Systems Entrepreneur

Tony Kord moved to Paragon City after the Rikti War. A competent engineer and a brilliant businessman, he hopes to make a name for himself as a purveyor of high tech defense systems for heroes and police. His team of talented researchers is hard at work building newer, better weapons designed for use against particular criminal groups. The right tool for the right job, he's fond of saying. He often works with new heroes, providing them tips in exchange for help testing his equipment. Right now he's focused on relatively minor threats like the Clockwork King, but he hopes to expand his business tremendously in the next few years.

Missions (Level 5+)

Talk to Lt. David Wincott

Briefing

Have you heard about the Hollows, Character? Ever since the Trolls moved into Eastgate, the Paragon PD has been fighting a losing battle against them. If you're willing, I'd like you to go talk to Lt. David Wincott of the Trolls Task Force. He could really use your help in reclaiming the Hollows. Of course, we can really use your help here, too. Wherever you'd like to lend a hand, you'll be welcome.

Mission Acceptance

The Trolls are the worse problem in the Hollows, but they aren't the only one. I'll let Lt. Wincott fill you in.

Here's a briefing I wrote up for you. It'll help you understand what Wincott's up against out there.

Icon clue generic.png
Hollows Briefing
Eastgate used to be a nice residential neighborhood with a view of the ocean. Before Trolls moved in, that is. On a quest for more territory, a group of Trolls headed into the sewers under Eastgate with the intent of blasting open a large area. What they didn't know that that there was already an extensive cave warren beneath the area. Their blasts destabilized the ground and collapsed a large section of the zone. When the dust settled, the surviving Trolls realized that they had found an excellent area for expansion. This event became known as the Hollowing. Since the Hollowing, other groups have moved into the area, including the Outcasts, the Circle of Thorns, and the strange rock-like creatures known as Pumicites. The Paragon City Police Department has its hands full trying to expel these threats so that reconstruction on the Hollows can begin.
You might want to bring some friends, The Hollows is no place to be by yourself.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Wincott's a good man who's had a hard time recently. Do right by him, Character.

Briefing

This Clockwork scavenging is becoming a real problem in Kings Row. Those little metal menaces are taking street lamps, sewer grates, and everything else they can get their mitts on. I need you to discourage the Clockwork scavenging in Kings Row. Otherwise, that whole zone is going to turn into a death trap!

Mission Acceptance

Royal Refinery and Freedom Plaza are particularly overrun, but I'm sure any neighborhood in the zone would welcome your assistance.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Those Clockwork aren't going to stop tearing up Kings Row of their own accord.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat Clockwork in Kings Row
    • Defeat 10 Clockwork

You have discouraged the Clockwork from scavenging in Kings Row.

Enemies

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Security Chief

Briefing

This briefing will help you. Now get out there and take out those Skulls. You might try looking for them in High Park or Freedom Plaza.


Icon clue generic.png
Kings Row briefing
A lot of hardworking folks live in Kings Row, home to most of Paragon City's labor force. The place was named after the King Garment Works, but that business went under over twenty years ago. Now, Kings Row is in the hands of all sorts of businesses, from small factories to various Crey subsidiaries. Unfortunately, those damn Skulls have taken over the streets. Some people say that those ghouls belong to some sort of death cult. Whether that's true or not, the Skulls are sure full of trouble.

Keep the peace in Kings Row

Unnecessary Solicitation

Kings Row is like a war zone right now.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep the peace in Kings Row
    • Defeat 10 Skulls

You have defeated 10 Skulls.

Enemies

Badge villain skulls.png Skulls

Debriefing

The security force sends their thanks. Good work, Character! It won't be easy to clean up Kings Row, but with your help, we have a much better chance of success.

Go to Castenada Export locate any clues you can and shut down the Clockwork plot

Briefing

We've got reports of some Clockwork down at the old abandoned Castenada Export warehouse complex. Sources say they're using it as a staging area for a massive attack against the city. Character, we've never heard of the Clockwork trying anything this bold! It's absolutely imperative that you go to Castenada Export and shut down the Clockwork plot!

Mission Acceptance

I hear there's a large robot inside called Clanger. Watch out for it while you are hunting for information. Character.

Unnecessary Solicitation

We still don't know what the Clockwork are planning at the Castenada Export warehouse!

Mission Objective(s)

This warehouse once belonged to a highly successful company, but there is no evidence of its former glory.

  • Defeat Boss Name and its guards
    • Find evidence of plot

You defeated the Clockwork and found the diary of the Clockwork King.

You have picked up a diary.

Icon clue generic.png
Diary of the Clockwork King
This diary is filled with the frenzied ramblings of the Clockwork King. In one section he writes:

'Character reminds me so much of the vigilante who destroyed my body and left me to this metal shell. I must eliminate this new threat.'

Notes

  • The name of the warehouse can vary. Possibilities include APS Warehousing, Castenada Export, and Jovian Storage.
  • The name of the boss can vary. Possibilities include Cables, Clanger, Clockwise, Mecha, and Piston.

Enemies

Badge villain clockwork.png Clockwork

Notable NPCs

V archetypeicon stalker.png Ambush! Upon taking the clue, there will be three ambushes by Clockwork.

"Character is a threat!"

Debriefing

So, the Clockwork were planning nothing more than your demise! I'm sorry I sent you into a trap, Character, but this diary may well be worth the risk. It should give us valuable new insights into the Clockwork King's madness. I must admit I always wondered why he had transplanted his brain into a Clockwork robot. Now I know. It's no wonder that he hates heroes so much, if it was one of them who consigned him to that fate. It's a sad thing, really. With his brilliant engineering skills, the Clockwork King could have been a hero in his own right.

Missions

See Perez Park Security Chief

Talk to Security Chief

Briefing

The Security Chief for Perez Park asked for you by name. You should take that as a compliment. Go talk to him. He's located in Atlas Park near the gates to Perez Park.

Mission Acceptance

Perez Park is a dangerous place these days. Clearly the Chief thinks you can handle it, but take a couple of friends with you, just in case.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Don't let the Perez Park Security Chief down, Character.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Security Chief

Briefing

Take this briefing seriously. I need you to deal with some of the Circle of Thorns mystics that have been plaguing the area. Try looking for them in Bettis Hills.


Icon clue generic.png
Perez Park briefing
Perez Park used to be a beautiful place to take your family for an afternoon picnic. Now, no one in his right mind wanders in there. Most of the area has been abandoned, largely due to the rumors of unholy Circle of Thorns rites taking place deep within the forest. The park is entirely overgrown, a perfect place for those strange mystics to summon up a demon or two. This zone is so deadly that even heroes shouldn't go in there in groups of fewer than three.

Keep the peace in Perez Park

Unnecessary Solicitation

Deal with the Circle in Perez Park!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep the peace in Perez Park
    • Defeat 10 Circle of Thorns

You have defeated 10 Circle of Thorns mystics.

Enemies

Unnecessary Solicitation

+++ Missing Information +++

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Security Chief

Briefing

Take this and get on the streets immediately. Stop those Trolls! They've caused a lot of havoc in Vista Plaza and the Astral District.


Icon clue generic.png
Skyway City briefing
Back in the 1970's, there was a huge drive to create highways to relieve congestion in the city. No one would need to drive on the surface streets - instead, we would drive above them! So the city started building high spanning bridges everywhere, and Skyway City quickly turned into one big highway in the sky. Now this zone is home to a street gang that likes to camp out underneath bridges: the Trolls. These are thugs who've mutated, thanks to taking a bit too much Superadine. But watch out; the drug has given many of them inhuman strength and resistance.

Stop rampage in Skyway City

Unnecessary Solicitation

Mission Objective(s)

  • Stop rampage in Skyway City
    • Defeat 10 Trolls

You have stopped the rampage.

Debriefing

Good job today. There must be some link between Superadine and these rampages. The Trolls need to be cut off from their supply.
