The Arachnos Situation Monitor is an NPC located both in the Arachnos Headquarters (-889, 112, -886) in the Marconeville neighborhood of Port Oakes, and in the Recluse's Victory Portal rooms inside the large Arachnos citadel (2903.9, -1047.3, 900.2) at the center of The Tangle neighborhood in Grandville. In Port Oakes he stands near the Super Group Registrar for villains and in Grandville he resides in the same room as Operative Grillo and Vernon von Grun.
A large map of the Recluse's Victory PvP zone hangs behind him in both locations. He announces changes in the ownership of territories within the zone (Hero, Villain or unclaimed) and the map updates to display the current situation. Talking to him will give the number of territories claimed by Heroes and Villains. He is not a contact.
Currently, we are monitoring the battle between the forces of Arachnos and Longbow in the time stream we refer to as 'Recluse's Victory'. Through judicious use of temporal and etherial mechanics, we have determined this location in time/space to be pivotal in determining the future outcome of the fate of Atlas Park. As a result, Arachnos is recruiting as many able-bodied fighters to support them in their struggle to maintain their lead in this temporal battle.
The map behind me is updated as we receive reports from the field, indicating how the battle is currently progressing.
