Contact Introduced By Edit
New Contact(s) Edit
Detective Brogan will let you in on some interesting cases.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Let's do business!
Badge Mission Edit
Get the Clockwork out of the warehouse before the Skulls get involved Edit
The Clockwork have taken over a warehouse in Kings Row, and it's one that the Skulls claim is on their turf. You have to get the Clockwork out of that warehouse before the Skulls get involved. You have 60 minutes to defeat the Clockwork.
Hurry, before the situation endangers the public! Time is of the essence!
The air ahead crackles with electricity, and empty Dyne ampoules on the floor betray the presence of the Skulls.
- Defeat all the Clockwork and Skulls - 60:00
You defeated the Clockwork and Skulls
Completion of this mission earns a hero the Negotiator accomplishment badge.
You were instrumental in stopping a war between the Clockwork and the Skulls.
Thanks for keeping the peace in Kings Row!
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.
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.
Go to Castenada Export locate any clues you can and shut down the Clockwork plot Edit
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. 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!
I hear there's a large robot inside called Clanger. Watch out for it while you are hunting for information.
This warehouse once belonged to a highly successful company, but there is no evidence of its former glory.
- Defeat Clanger and its guards
- Find evidence of plot
You defeated the Clockwork and found the diary of the Clockwork King.
|Diary of the Clockwork King|
|This diary is filled with the frenzied ramblings of the Clockwork King. In one section he writes:
'This hero reminds me so much of the vigilante who destroyed my body and left me to this metal shell. I must eliminate this new threat.'
- 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.
- Cables/Clanger/Clockwise/Mecha/Piston (Clockwork Cannon Prince)
So, the Clockwork were planning nothing more than your demise! I'm sorry I sent you into a trap, 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.
Discourage the Clockwork scavenging in Kings Row Edit
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!
Royal Refinery and Freedom Plaza are particularly overrun, but I'm sure any neighborhood in the zone would welcome your assistance.
- Combat Clockwork in Kings Row
- Defeat 10 Clockwork
You have discouraged the Clockwork from scavenging in Kings Row.
Kings Row is a lot safer now, thanks to you.
