Contact Introduced By Edit
New Contact(s) Edit
You should talk to Maurice Feldon some time. He keeps track of anything that's going on in the science world. He's particularly interested in the Clockwork King. Maurice's company is in Galaxy City so you can usually find him there.
Maurice may be a little reckless, but he is very intelligent and he means well.
Paula has high standards, but I have no doubt you will live up to them.
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.
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.
Tony Kord is a good person to know. He knows what's happening in the city, especially where the Clockwork are concerned, and he'll often suggest solutions. Tony's company is in Atlas Park, so he usually hangs out there.
Deal honestly with Tony if you want his help.
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.
The coroner's job in Paragon City is complicated by a number of factors: the exotic powers that can cause death, the alien anatomies that complicate autopsies, and the mutant abilities that sometimes make it hard to tell if a person's actually dead. Laurence Mansfield has handled all of these with aplomb for more than twenty years. Not only is he calm, dignified, and insightful, he's also immensely curious. He's a bit of an amateur detective, a hobby the police department frowns on. So Laurence goes straight to some of the city's heroes instead. He's always excited to share tips and theories with costume-clad defenders, and he considers many of them his friends. The police look the other way, in deference to the skill and speed with which he performs his assigned duties.
Initial Contact Edit
You are livelier than most people I meet.
Talk to Lt. David Wincott Edit
Have you heard about the Hollows? 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.
The Trolls are the worse problem in the Hollows, but they aren't the only one. I'll let Lt. Wincott fill you in.
|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.|

See Kings Row Security Chief Edit
I need you to get over to the Kings Row Security Chief right away. Follow your compass.
- Talk to Security Chief
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.
|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
- Defeat 10 Skulls
You have defeated 10 Skulls.
The security force sends their thanks. Good work! It won't be easy to clean up Kings Row, but with your help, we have a much better chance of success.
Recover the stolen jewel from the Circle of Thorns Edit
The Paragon City Museum has reported the theft of an ancient artifact, the Jewel of Hera. I'd bet my life the Circle is behind it. Will you recover the stolen jewel from the Circle of Thorns?
The Jewel of Hera was once used to power rituals of revenge. I don't know who the Circle wants revenge against, but I know I want them stopped.
You followed a circle mystic into this cave. You're certain your quarry hasn't noticed you, but you can't shake the feeling of being watched.
- Defeat jewel thief and his crew
- Find the Jewel of Hera
You recovered the Jewel of Hera.
|The Jewel of Hera|
|According to legend, Hera gave this emerald necklace to one of Zeus' many mortal wives. When the girl put the necklace on, she was immediately engulfed in flames. In the millennia since, the necklace has often been used to enhance rituals of revenge.|
Thanks to you, the Circle of Thorns has been blunted again.
See Perez Park Security Chief Edit
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.
- Talk to Security Chief
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.
|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
- Defeat 10 Circle of Thorns
I guess the Chief's confidence in you was well placed. Fantastic job.
Arrest Hell Storm Edit
According to my sources, one of the Hellions' high-ranking thugs, Hell Storm, is holed up in a nearby abandoned office. Can you arrest Hell Storm for me? If we can put one of their big shots in jail, it may help us curb the Hellions' violence.
Maybe Hell Storm can tell us where the Hellions are getting their steady supply of artifacts.
This place has been trashed, but you can see signs of organization here and there.
- Arrest Hell Storm and his crew
You arrested Revenant and his crew.
- The Hellion boss' name may vary. Possibilities include Char, Hell Storm, Inferno and Revenant.
- The mission with Revenant is incorrectly titled Arrest Baphomet.
- Char/Hell Storm/Inferno/Revenant (Hellions Damned)
You say Hell Storm was passing on orders from the Hellions' artifact supplier? Very interesting. It could be that there's a greater design behind the Hellions' recent territory grab. I'm counting on you to keep a close watch on these thugs.
Go to Kings Row and stop the Circle kidnappings Edit
There is an increase in Circle of Thorns activity in Kings Row. They are kidnapping citizens off the streets for use in their dark rituals. I need a hero who can get to Kings Row and stop the Circle kidnappings. The Circle's rituals are performed only at night, and usually in secluded spots like building rooftops to avoid unwanted attention, so start your search there.
If I were you, I'd start looking for mystics in the Gish, or maybe High Park. The Circle prefers the seclusion of rooftops and back alleys for their rituals.
- Combat Circle in Kings Row
- Defeat 10 Circle of Thorns
You have put a stop to the Circle's kidnappings in Kings Row.
I've got a number of heroes following up those missing person cases; by putting a stop to the kidnappings, you've made their jobs a whole lot easier.
Hit the streets and wrest some artifacts from the Hellions Edit
The Hellions have been found with a lot of stolen artifacts lately. Some of the things they're carrying are quite powerful and corrupting; they shouldn't be in the hands of the wisest men on Earth, let alone a bunch of thugs. I want you to hit the streets and see if you can wrest some of these artifacts from the Hellions.
- Retrieve dangerous artifacts
- Defeat 10 Hellions
You have recovered several artifacts from the Hellions
|While defeating some Hellions, you recovered three dangerous artifacts: the Helm of Lim'phur, a necklace given to Ann Boleyn by King Henry VIII, and a strange seashell that emits a haunting melody when held to your ear.|
Good job. These artifacts will be much better off in the MAGI vaults.
Hit the streets and interrogate as many Circle mystics as you can find Edit
I'm working on a number of outstanding missing person cases, and I think I know who's responsible for them: the Circle of Thorns. If we only knew the location of more Circle bases, I'm sure we could find a lot of the people who have gone missing. I need you to hit the streets and interrogate as many Circle mystics as you can find. I need the locations of those bases!
- Learn Circle's base locations
- Defeat 10 Circle of Thorns
|After interrogating several Circle mystics, you learned the locations of several of their bases. This information should help your contact resolve several outstanding missing person cases.|
Thanks, Character. I'll send some heroes to check out these bases right away.
