Information Edit

Science Reporter

Science has had more advances in the past year than it has in the past 100, dou in great part to the massive knowledge researchers continue to glean from the recovered Rikti technology. It is Ron Hughes' greatest pleasure to report on these developments as a writer for The Paragon Science Journal, especially since he knows that not all those making advances have Paragon City's best interests at heart. Ron knows just the right questions to ask, and his contacts in the scientific community often tip him off to research taking place under shady circumstances. He finds such experiments morally appalling, and he's helped more than a few heroes bust illegal labs.

Missions Edit

See Perez Park Security Chief Edit

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.

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.

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
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.

Mission Objective(s)

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

Enemies

Debriefing

I guess the Chief's confidence in you was well placed. Fantastic job.

Destroy the drug lab and recover the sample the Skulls are using Edit

Briefing

Some Skulls have set up a lab to make their own Superadine. Someone needs to destroy that drug lab and recover the sample the Skulls are using. Can you get it done before they can go into mass production?

I know you can do it, but be careful. The rumor is that Marrow Drinker is running the show. He won't go down easy.

Mission Objective(s)

The old warehouse smells of rotting cardboard, rusting metal, and strange chemicals.

  • Stop Marrow Drinker and crew
    • 3 labs to destroy

You got the Superadine sample and defeated Marrow Drinker.

Icon clue generic
Raw Superadine sample
This unrefined sample of the drug Superadine was collected from a Skulls' drug lab.

Notes

  • The name of the boss can vary. Possible names include Marrow Drinker and Toothbreaker Jones.

Debriefing

That's more Superadine off the streets. Good work. I'll pass this sample along to someone I know at SERAPH.

Go to Perez Park and stop the Skulls' drug trafficking Edit

Briefing

The Skulls have been selling a lot of Superadine in Perez Park lately. The hospitals are crowded with overdosed addicts, and street crime is escalating. I need you to go to the source. Get over to Perez Park and stop the Skulls' drug trafficking. If we can't stem the flow of Superadine, we could wind up losing a lot of people in that zone.

The Boneyard and the park itself are some of the Skulls' favorite hangouts. I suggest you start there.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat Skulls in Perez Park
    • Defeat 10 Skulls

You have discouraged the Skulls from selling Superadine in Perez Park.

Enemies

Badge villain skulls Skulls

Debriefing

Well done. The Skulls' drug ring just took a big hit.

Break Up the Gang Fight Edit

Briefing

The Skulls are planning to move on a Hellions hideout in an abandoned office building. I need someone to break up that gang fight. But watch out; once you show up, they won't stay around for long. You only have 75 minutes to break up the gang fight.

I hear the Hellions have some valuable artifacts stored in that hideout. Bring them back if you can. Your only real objective is to stop the fight, but if you can prevent the artifacts from being destroyed, I'd be much obliged to you.

Mission Objective(s)

You can hear the sounds of gunfire and flame, muted by the old office's decaying walls.

  • End gang war, arrest all thugs - 1:15:00
    • Protect artifacts

You defeated the gang members and averted a full-scale gang war.

Dialogs

Some interesting things may be overheard during this mission:

Hellions vs Skulls fight:

Hellions Minion: We're going to toast ya!
Skulls Minion: Yeah? Frost has it in for you, losers!

(agroed)

Hellions Minion: Hero! Torch 'em!
Skulls Minion: Punk up Hero!

Attacking the Artifacts:

Skulls Minion: We're going to smash these things to smithereens!

(agroed)

Skulls Minion: Smash that junk!


Icon clue generic
Confiscated artifacts
You stopped the Skulls from destroying these artifacts.


Debriefing

It seems both the Hellions and the Skulls were operating under orders. There are bigger things afoot than a simple scuffle over territory. We have to get to the bottom of the Skulls' and the Hellions' connections!

Go to the streets and defeat a few SkullsEdit

Briefing

I want to know where the Skulls are getting the money and supplies they need to run their Superadine ring. Get on the streets and take down a few Skulls. We've got to get to the bottom of this.

Take a few of these Flashbang Grenades. They'll disorient the Skulls.

Temporary Power

You receive Flashbang Grenades.

Temporary FlashbangGrenades Flashbang Grenades Ranged (Targeted Area of Effect), Foe -Accuracy, -Defense
These military issue non-lethal grenades explode with a concussive force that leaves all affected targets very vulnerable. Their Accuracy and Defense will be severely reduced. You have 6 grenades. Note that these grenades disappear when you report back even if you haven't used them all.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Investigate Superadine ring
    • Defeat 10 Skulls

The last Skull you defeated gave up some information about the Skulls' drug ring.

Icon clue generic
The Skull's story
One of the Skulls you defeated told you:

'Yeah, all right, the Skulls got a partner. A big partner. You'll never guess where the Dyne is coming from, zero. And I ain't tellin' ya.

Debriefing

So, there is another play supplying the Skulls with Superadine. Very interesting. We'll have to learn more if we're going to win the drug war in Paragon City.
