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.

Have you ever stopped by Sanjay's News? The owner, Sanjay Chandra, is a great guy, real civic minded. He's always looking for ways to help heroes with the Lost and the Skulls. Sanjay's got the scoop over in Skyway City.

Sanjay is one of the most polite people in all of Paragon City.

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.

I know a confidential informant named Lorenzo DiCosta. He can provide you with some solid leads on current Council activity. Lorenzo can be found on the streets of Skyway City.

Lorenzo is well placed to provide information; please don't judge him too harshly, Character.

You should talk to Haley Philips over at the Health Department. She specializes in identifying and dealing with health threats posed by the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. She's always looking for more help from the city's heroes. She can be found in Skyway City.

Haley has very strong beliefs about safety.

You might want to go see Hugo Redding, a physician's assistant who specializes in taking care of heroes. He also moonlights as a reporter for a medical website, so he's always hearing interesting tidbits about the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. Hugo hangs out in Steel Canyon.

Hugo is keyed into the latest medical practices.

There's this kid, Alfonse Rubel, who's a courier. He zips all over the city, delivering important packages and messages. He sees a lot of what's going down with the Lost and the Skulls. Al's route has him in Steel Canyon for the next few days.

Alfonse is almost always on the move. If you catch him at rest, he can help you out.

I know a private eye named Wes Schnabel who wants to talk to you about the Council. He's always looking for new contacts and good heroes to work with. He usually takes cases in Steel Canyon.

Schnabel is a good, old-fashioned gumshoe.

Dr. Trevor Seaborn expressed an interest in meeting you when I told him about your good work. He's a psychiatrist specializing in criminal behavior, and an expert on the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. Dr. Seaborn is in Steel Canyon.

Trevor has a brilliant mind, and his insights on criminal behavior are invaluable.

You ever meet Willy Starbuck? He's a small time hustler, but he knows a lot about the Council, and he's willing to talk. You should stop by and introduce yourself. Willy grifts over in Steel Canyon.

Willy has the kind of mind that can lead you right to the heart of trouble.

I suggest you meet Wilson Zucco. He's an ex-gang member who's turned his life around, and he knows the Lost and the Skulls better than anyone. He also has a great deal of information on the Vahzilok. Wilson keeps an eye on the Lost from within Steel Canyon.

Wilson is one of the only people in the city who bridges the gap between the law and the streets.

Level 15-19

There's a great young historian you should talk to named Wyatt Anderson. He's an expert on the history of all things super-powered, and he can be a big help to new heroes like you. He's especially interested in taking down the Clockwork and the Trolls. Wyatt's research has him in Steel Canyon these days.

Wyatt has a wealth of information.

Maggie Greene is a class act and a good reporter. She'll do good by you. Her investigations have led her to focus on the Clockwork and the Trolls. Maggie files her reports in Skyway City.

Maggie has better instincts than almost anyone I know. Listen to her and you will have plenty of action.

Did you ever hear of the Red Tiger? He retired right after the war, and now he's just Jake Montoya. He may not wear a costume anymore, but he can sure help those who do, especially with information on the Clockwork and the Trolls. Jake has retired to Skyway City.

Jake has his eye out for new blood to take up the mantle of heroism.

Do you have any contacts with Hero Corps yet? Even if you do, you should really talk to Colleen Saramago. I think she'd be happy to give you some assignments dealing with the Clockwork and the Trolls. Hero Corps has stationed Colleen in Steel Canyon.

Hero Corps has a very good information network.

Information

Environmental Activist

Born and raised in Paragon City, Tristan is an idealistic young activist who specializes in urban environmentalism. His primary concerns are issues like recycling, clean air, and fighting urban sprawl. He's been in the news more than once, usually as part of a citizens' group dedicated to repairing Paragon City in an environmentally sound manner. He's got a nose for trouble and thinks of himself as kind of a watchdog, always on the lookout for environmental wrong-doers. He's particularly interested in Dr. Vahzilok, who has a reputation for hindering the environmental movement.

The Vahzilok Pollutant Plot (10-14)

Souvenir

Water department ID badge

This badge is a reminder of one of your most serious run-ins with the Vahzilok, a mission you've come to think of as:

The Vahzilok Pollutant Plot.

The trail began with several murderous attacks by the Vahzilok. They were killing innocent office workers. You stopped the slaughter and recovered an ID badge from one of the victims. The badge identified the fallen man as an employee of the Paragon City Water Department.

The Vahzilok didn't let their defeat slow them down. Your contact learned that the zombies had hijacked a chemical shipment, and you were sent to investigate. You dispatched the Vahzilok and recovered a shipping manifest. A cleanup crew was sent to recover the stolen chemicals, but, according to the manifest, several canisters were still missing.

Next you were sent to rescue several physicians kidnapped by the Vahzilok. From one of these doctors, you learned that the Vahzilok wanted information about a drug that aids in organ transplants by lowering the body's resistance to the foreign organs. Your contact put together the pieces. The Water Department badge. The missing chemicals. The doctor's new drug. The Vahzilok were coordinating a massive effort to drug the water of Paragon City!

In an effort to distract the city's heroes from their plan, the Vahzilok stepped up their reign of terror on the streets of Paragon City. You responded to the threat, defeating Vahzilok after Vahzilok until you found one that was carrying a faded map. It pointed to the water purification center, and you realized that the Vahzilok inteded to deploy their drug at that location.

You made your way to the seweres and confronted the Vahzilok. You put a stop to the plot to contaminate the Paragon City water supply with the evil taint of Vahzilok.

Stop the Vahzilok slaughter

Briefing

I've just heard that the Vahzilok are attacking some offices! Apparently they're just slaughtering everyone. You need to stop the Vahzilok slaughter right away. Make certain you examine the area for any clues they might have left.

Mission Acceptance

Hurry! Lives are at stake.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You have not stopped that Vahzilok attack. Get over there!

Mission Objective(s)

The Vahzilok have turned this office into a charnel made house.

  • Stop zombie leader and minions
    • Investigate raid, 7 hostages left

You found this ID badge on the victim of a Vahzilok attack. The badge identifies the wearer as an employee of the Paragon City Water Department.

Notable NPCs

  • 7 Helpless office workers (Hostages)

Enemies

Badge villain vahzilok.png Vahzilok

Debriefing

That badge you found on the dead man is from the Paragon City Water Department. What do the Vahzilok want with a PC Water employee?

Investigate the chemical hijacking

Briefing

You did a great job stopping the Vahzilok slaughter at that office building, and I think I can trust you with another big job. A couple of days ago a truck carrying a variety of dangerous chemicals was hijacked. There was no sign of the parties responsible, but the truck was just sighted pulling into a warehouse. Do you think you could investigate the chemical hijacking for me? Take a look around, but we'll handle the chemical cleanup once you secure the warehouse.

Make certain to be careful with those chemicals.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You have not secured that warehouse yet. We need to recover the stolen chemicals!

Mission Objective(s)

The hijacked truck is outside, and it's already been unloaded. This is definitely the place.

  • Defeat hijacker and his guards
    • Investigate hijacking

You have defeated the hijackers and found a clue to their motives.

Debriefing

Good job. I'll look over this shipping manifest you found. I'm sure we recovered most of the hijacked chemicals, but it could be that the Vahzilok managed to make off with something.

I've got another problem I'm hoping you can solve.

Rescue the physicians from the Vahzilok

Briefing

Vahzilok's zombies attacked a conference over at the hospital a few hours ago and kidnapped several of the attending physicians. One of the hostages managed to get a call out on his cell phone. I need you to rescue those physicians from the Vahzilok. I have grave fears about this. The office raid, the chemical hijacking, and now this attack on The hospital. It's clear that the Vahzilok are up to no good.

Make certain none of the hostages are harmed.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You haven't rescued those doctors from the Vahzilok.

Mission Objective(s)

Notes from the conference are scattered here and there, marked by the dark, odorous footprints of the undead.

  • Rescue the physicians
    • 3 hostages remaining

Icon clue generic.png
Physician conversation
One of the doctors you rescued told you:

'You know, people warned me about this city when I came here for the conference, but I never believed them. Thank you for saving me! I have to tell you, I think they were after me in particular. They kept asking me about the new drug I've been testing; it reduces the likelihood of the body rejecting an organ transplant. I hope this information helps.

Notable NPCs

  • 3 Hostages (Hostages)

Enemies

Badge villain vahzilok.png Vahzilok

Debriefing

I think I've figured this out. If I'm right, we're in real trouble.

Ok, let's add it all up. The man who died during the Vahzilok's office attack was a Paragon City Water Department employee. And there were some key chemicals missing from the hijacked shipment you recovered from the Vahzilok. I couldn't figure out what they were for, until you told me about the doctor you rescued. He was working on an experimental drug to prevent tissue rejection, right? Well, these missing chemicals are just what the Vahzilok need to manufacture that drug. You know what I think?

Combat the Vahzilok rampage

Briefing

Based on the clues you've recovered, I'll bet the Vahzilok are trying to dose the Paragon City water supply with an experimental drug. I think it will lower our resistance to implants, making it easier for Vahzilok to turn any Paragon citizen into a zombie! I heard that one of Vahzilok's lieutenants called Slaughter ordered an increase in their attacks. I think he's trying to obscure their true motives. I need you to combat the Vahzilok rampage. See if you can pick up any more information.

Look in Perez Park or Kings Row for Vahzilok.

V archetypeicon stalker.png Ambush!

After accepting the mission you will be ambushed by a wave of Vahzilok zombies

Unnecessary Solicitation

You haven't made enough of an effort to slow down the Vahzilok rampage.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat the Vahzilok rampage
    • Defeat 10 Vahzilok

You found a tattered map.

Enemies

Badge villain vahzilok.png Vahzilok


Icon clue generic.png
Tattered map
This map is worn, but it looks like it might show a portion of the Paragon City sewers. It will require expert analysis.


Debriefing

One of the Vahzilok dropped this map? Looks like it might show part of the sewer system. If I'm right, and the Vahzilok are trying to drug the water supply, you may have just found the clue we need to turn their plan on ear.

We need to have this map examined by an expert.

Take the map to the city representative

Briefing

I'll bet anything this map you found has something to do with the Vahzilok's plan to drug the water supply. I need you to take the map to the city representative. She can tell us exactly what part of the sewer it references.

Watch your back. The Vahzilok may be aware you found this.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You really need to get that map to the city representative.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Take map to city representative

Debriefing

Hmm, yes, you took this map off a Vahzilok you say? I'll get this to someone in the city planner's office at once.


Debriefing

I'm glad you're back. I just heard from the city planner's office. That map marks the location of the purification system. I'm right, I know I am! The Vahzilok plan to drug all of Paragon City's water!

I think the purifiers would eliminate this drug, so Slaughter must plan to bypass them in order to introduce the drug to the system.

Stop Trepanator from drugging the water

Briefing

According to the city planner, this map you found marks the location of the water purification system over in Kings Row. If Trepanator manages to introduce his drug to the water there, it'll be bad news for everyone with a faucet. You've got to stop Trepanator from drugging the water. If you hurry, lives can still be saved.

The Vahzilok will have their drug stored at several strategic positions. You need to destroy it before they can release it into the water system.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You haven't stopped the Vahzilok from drugging the water supply? It may be too late by now!

Icon clue generic.png
Sewer map
This sewer map marks the location of the water purification system. It is there that the Vahzilok will try to introduce their drug to the city's water supply.
Vahzilok drugs

Mission Objective(s)

Right now, families are washing dishes and bathing children, unaware that you are the only thing standing between their water and the Vahzilok's strange drug.

You have stopped the Vahzilok plan to poison the city.

Notable NPCs

Notes

  • The name of the vahzilok varies. Possible names include Butcher, Gangrene, Slaughter, and Trepanator.

Enemies

Badge villain vahzilok.png Vahzilok


Debriefing

You destroyed those chemicals just in time!

Well, we stopped them. If I'm right, that Vahzilok drug would have impaired the immune system of every person in this city. It would have been easier for Vahzilok to transform people into zombies, since his victims would have a much lower chance of rejecting the tissue grafts.

It also would have made us less likely to fight off infections and viruses. Before long,the hospital wards would be full of people dying from flu or the common cold! Thank you so much; yo've done this city a great service.

Missions (Level 9+)

Save Matthew Montrose from the Vahzilok

Briefing

Matthew Montrose, a brilliant ER surgeon, has been kidnapped. We think he's been taken to an abandoned office. It'll be dangerous, but I need you to save Matthew Montrose from the Vahzilok.

Mission Acceptance

I marked the entrance to the office on your map. I don't know what the Vahzilok want with a surgeon like Matthew Montrose, but it can't be good.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You have not rescued Matthew Montrose from the Vahzilok.

Mission Objective(s)

The damp, mildewed carpet squishes beneath your feet. It bears a thick trail, the mark of a helpless human form being dragged.

  • Save surgeon from Vahzilok
    • Help surgeon find organs

You rescued the surgeon.

Notes

  • The name of the surgeon to be rescued can vary. Possible names include Anthony Barton, Raymond Callahan, John Gray, Matthew Montrose, and Mark Rollins.

Notable NPCs

V archetypeicon stalker.png Ambush! After rescuing the surgeon, you will be ambushed by one wave of Vahzilok.

Enemies

Badge villain vahzilok.png Vahzilok

Debriefing

Matthew Montrose said those organs were the remains of fallen heroes. Apparently Vahzilok has some sort of pipeline to the hospital, which he's using to siphon off the best donated organs for his own dark purposes. The way Matthew Montrose described Dr. Vahzilok's experiments, they seem nothing short of brilliant. If only he would confine himself to legal experiments, his brilliance could be a great boon to mankind.

Missions (Level 10+)

Go to Steel Canyon and stop the Vahzilok Lab Raids

Briefing

The neighborhood watch in Steel Canyon is reporting a serious problem with the Vahzilok. The zombies have been breaking into labs and making off with all the medical equipment. Sometimes they even take a technician! You've got to get to Steel Canyon and stop the Vahzilok lab raids. I don't know what the Vahzilok plan to do with that equipment, but it can only mean more tragedy for Paragon City.

Mission Acceptance

I'd recommend getting to work in Blyde Square or the Copper District.

Unnecessary Solicitation

The Vahzilok are still raiding labs in Steel Canyon!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat Vahzilok in Steel Canyon
    • Defeat 10 Vahzilok

You have stopped the Vahzilok lab raids.

Debriefing

Thanks, Character. The Vahzilok will think long and hard before raiding any more labs.

Hit the streets, defeat Vahzilok and come up with a good story

Briefing

This Vahzilok threat is becoming a media nightmare. I've got reporters everywhere looking to do human interest pieces on them for the late editions. They want an account from someone who has personally fought these zombies and lived to tell the tale. Would you be willing to handle this assignment? I just need you to go out and defeat a few Vahzilok and summarize the experience for a print interview. Pretty easy stuff.

Mission Acceptance

You should look for Vahzilok in Kings Row or Perez Park. Those areas are overrun. Steel Canyon has had issues with them as well.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You don't have enough material for a good article yet.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Work on Newspaper Article
    • Defeat 10 Vahzilok

You feel you have enough material for a good story now.

Icon clue generic.png
Your Report
You do your best to make fighting the zombie Vahzilok exciting, and not something you do every day. It's a passable piece, should do well once it has some editing.

Debriefing

Wow, this is great stuff! Sometimes I wish I was a hero so I could have adventures half as cool as this.

Talk to the Boomtown Security Chief

Talk to Security Chief

Briefing

Lately, the Clockwork have been tearing Boomtown apart. Report to the Security Chief for that zone and he will tell you what to do.

Mission Acceptance

I don't know why they do this, but the Clockwork are becoming more of a menace every day. Watch out for the huge monster, Babbage!

Unnecessary Solicitation

Don't let the Security Chief down, Character.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Security Chief

Briefing

Here is some info on Boomtown, Character. I need you to stop the Clockwork! You could start looking for them in Primer or the Cannonade.


Icon clue generic.png
Boomtown briefing
Baumton was the city's first marketplace, where tradesman and farmers went to sell their wares. After the Rikti Invasion, people started calling it Boomtown, because the devastation reminded them of a bomb crater. It's pretty dangerous. If I were you, I wouldn't go in without a few other heroes for backup. The place is infested with those Clockwork robots. They look like toys, but they cause plenty of havoc by stealing bits of machinery and metal from all over. Even worse, a giant clockwork monster called Babbage prevents any pacification of the zone. Be especially careful of him.

Keep peace in Boomtown

Unnecessary Solicitation

Deal with the Clockwork for Security!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep peace in Boomtown
    • Defeat 10 Clockwork

You have defeated 10 Clockwork.

Debriefing

We used to laugh at the Clockwork. Not anymore. Well done, Character.
