- Here's someone you should meet.
There's a technology expert named Fareed Abdullah you should talk to. He's a very interesting guy and knows a great deal about the Clockwork and the Lost. Fareed deals with folks out of Steel Canyon these days.
Fareed is very kind and courteous.
There's a Hmong businessman named Kong Bao who's a real leader in his community. You should talk to him. I'm sure you'd find him quite helpful, especially when it comes to the Tsoo and the Circle of Thorns. Mr. Kong has strong ties to Skyway City.
You will be helping a great man,.
I suggest you go speak to Sgt. Suzanne Bernhard in the street crimes division. She's a good person to know, especially when you're dealing with the Tsoo or the Council. Sgt. Bernhard works the desk in Skyway City.
Suzanne always has her eyes on the streets.
You should meet Tom Bowden. He's an NSA agent recently assigned to Paragon City. His first assignment is trying to crack the Clockwork puzzle, but he also has a chip on his shoulder for the Lost. Tom's government connections have him in Steel Canyon these days.
Tom is very focused, and knows what he is doing.
Have you ever met Vitaly Cherenko, the mystic healer? He's a walking hospital, only he uses magic instead of bandages. You should talk to him and see if you can help each other defeat the Tsoo and the Circle of Thorns. Vitaly can usually be found in Skyway City.
Many people don't understand the work Vitaly is doing, but that doesn't mean it's not important.
Did you ever see that weekly paper, the Asian Paragon? Well, its publisher, Olivia Chung, is a great woman. She knows all about what's going on in the immigrant community and has helped more than one hero sort out a jam involving the Vahzilok or the Outcasts. Olivia has her offices in Steel Canyon.
You won't meet many people as good-hearted as Olivia.
I know a courier named Guy Denson who would like to meet you. He runs all over town delivering important packages, and he's helped lots of heroes with the Clockwork and the Lost. Guy's routes have him in Steel Canyon now.
Guy will steer you to the heart of trouble.
Dr. Ann-Marie Engles is a real expert in the field of cybernetics. She is fascinated with the technical aspect of the Vahzilok and the social impact of the Outcasts. Dr. Engles has set up shop in Skyway City.
You'll learn a lot from Dr. Engles; she's always happy to lend heroes a hand.
Mark Freeman is a mutant with the ability to communicate with machines. He has been focusing his attention on the Clockwork activity lately, altough he's also interested in the mysterious Lost. Mark makes his home in Skyway City.
Mark can be a little brusque, but he has a connection that no one else can possibly match.
Agent Pavel Garnier from the FBI asked me to send you to him. He thinks you could help him with some of his cases involving the Vahzilok and the Outcasts. Pavel is currently looking into something in Skyway City.
A positive connection with the FBI is a very good thing to have.
I know this guy, his name's Cho Ge. He's a little shady. He even used to be a gangster, but these days he's working for the good guys. He knows everything about the Tsoo and the Council. Cho Ge hangs out in Skyway City nowadays.
As long as you watch your step with Cho Ge, you will benefit from his knowledge
You'd never guess it to look at her, but the sculptor Virginia Hoffman really knows a lot about what's going on in this town, especially with the Tsoo and the Circle of Thorns. You should talk to her. Ms. Hoffman lives in Steel Canyon these days.
Virginia is very eccentric, but she has a good heart and is really interested in doing the right thing.

Have you ever read Juliana Nehring's column? She's an Internet reporter who specializes in super-powered villains. She's always looking for new sources to help her investigate the latest Vahzilok and Outcast activities. Juliana files her stories in Skyway City.
Juliana is tough as nails and is willing to do whatever it takes to get a story.
Detective Karen Parker has a great reputation as a tough but fair-minded cop. If you're respectful and show her you're competent, I'm sure she'll be happy to work with you on the Tsoo and Council. Detective Parker investigates crimes out of the Skyway City precinct.
Detective Parker can be harsh, but only when it's warranted.
FBI Special Agent Warren Trudeau would like to have a word with you. He's particularly eager to work with new heroes like you in combating the Tsoo and the Council. Agent Trudeau is on special assignment to Skyway City.
I think you will find Agent Trudeau to be very helpful.
Miss Cooper is very skilled at her job and should prove to be a valuable asset to you.
I know a guy named Kevin Cordell who runs a small security consulting business. He's heard about you and would like to talk sometime about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Kevin used to be a hero, and he still has access to Training Enhancements.
Kevin is not easily impressed, but I think you will do just fine with him,.
I have to admit that Georgia Fields doesn't have the best reputation. No one really knows how she gets her information, but she's an excellent source on the Sky Raiders and the Lost. She is usually able to get her hands on training enhancements.
If you are careful, Georgia can be of great assistance to you.
If you ever have a computer problem or want a lead on some computer related crime, you should talk to Justine Kelly. She's a whiz at technical stuff and a bit of an online hero in her own right. Lately she has been focusing her attention on the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Justine has access to Training Enhancements.
Justine is a very skilled young lady.
Do not dismiss Melanie's guidance lightly.
I've been asked to keep this very quiet, but someone from the CIA wants to meet you. Her name is Kirsten Woods and she knows quite a bit about the Sky Raiders. She also thinks there may be more to the Lost than meets the eye. As a CIA operative, Agent Woods has access to Training Enhancements.
Keep a low profile when you are working with Kirsten.

The Mind of a King (15-19)
Damaged power source
This burned out piece of technology represents the beginning and the end of a puzzling mystery. It seems the Clockwork King powers his constructs through telekinesis alone. the magnitude of his power must be astronomical for him to operate so many Clockworks at once, and at such a great range. All that remains now is to find the Clockwork King and force him to stop his mental marionettes. You learned all this in an adventure you've come to think of as:
The Mind of a King
It all began when your contact asked you to retrieve a Clockwork power source for analysis. You hit the streets, defeating many Clockwork before you recovered a suitable piece.
But the piece was only a small part of the mystery. Your contact sent you to a Clockwork base to retrieve a Clockwork broadcasting unit. After examining the unit, your contact was able to detect a similar signal coming from the sewers. You followed the signal, and discovered that it came from a Vahzilok broadcasting unit.
Your contact could only conclude that Vahzilok was the device's owner, and that the Clockwork were mearly using it for scrap. Puzzled, your contact asked you to recover some more Clockwork parts. Determined to solve the mystery, you went back to the streets.
You returned with 15 defeated robots, which your contact tried to reactivate. These efforts were not successful, but the robots were spurred to life anyway by the mental energies of the Clockwork King.
Find a Clockwork power source for Colleen Saramago to study
I still need that Clockwork power source to analyze.
- Collect Clockwork power source
- Defeat 15 Clockwork
You found a Clockwork power source.
|Damaged power source|
|You took this power source from a Clockwork minion you defeated. It seems that the power source was damaged in combat.|
Thank you very much. I'm sure this will help me understand the Clockwork better. I'll let you know what I discover.
Combat the Clockwork in the office
This Clockwork power source you recovered doesn't answer as many questions as I had hoped. In fact, I can't seem to make it function at all.
Perhaps the key lies in one of the Clockwork's bases of operation. According to my sources, there's a Clockwork base in a nearby office building, under the control of a mighty robot called Bolts. I want you to combat the Clockwork in that office. Bring back anything that looks like a power broadcasting unit, ok?
The plot is definitely thickening, as they say.
I still need that Clockwork power broadcasting device.
You've wondered for a long time about the Clockwork's mysterious power source. Now that the answer seems near, there'll be no slowing you down.
- Defeat Bolts and its minions
You found a broadcasting unit.
- Bolts (Clockwork Cannon Prince)
|You found this device in a Clockwork lair. It broadcasts a signal to a remote source.|
Thanks. This Clockwork broadcasting unit may help us figure out how the Clockwork King powers his minions. I must say, it's an odd design for the Clockwork. I'll have to run a number of tests.
Go into the sewers and recover the device
I've been scanning for a signal similar to the one the device outputs, and I've finally located one. It's in a section of the Paragon City sewers. I need you to go into the sewers and recover the device. If I were you, I'd be prepared for a fight.
Tread carefully, hero. I have no idea what you are going to find down there.
Get down to the sewers and find that device.
As you enter the sewers, you hear the sound of distant radio static.
- Defeat all villains in sewers
- Locate the broadcasting device
You defeated the Vahzilok and found the broadcasting device.
You found the broadcasting device.
|Vahzilok broadcasting unit|
|This device is almost identical to the broadcasting unit you found in a Clockwork den.|
|Data on Vahzilok device|
|The two broadcasting devices, which you found in a Clockwork den and a Vahzilok lair, emit some kind of long range, high frequency signal. This type of signal would be ideal for carrying messages, but there is no evidence that the signal can power the Clockwork.|
Puzzling,. This device you took from the Vahzilok looks just like the one you found in the Clockwork base.
These devices look identical. Strange that you should find one in a Clockwork base and the other in a Vahzilok den. I believe they are emitting the same signal, but I'm not sure how it could be guiding the Clockwork.
Collect more Clockwork parts
Interesting. This device you found in the Vahzilok den is just like the one you discovered in the Clockwork hideout. , I don't think they were designed by the Clockwork King at all! I believe Vahzilok's been using these devices to communicate with his minions; the Clockwork probably just took it for scrap.
It looks like we're no nearer to figuring out how the Clockwork King powers his robots. Can you collect some more Clockwork parts for me? I'd like to see if I can recreate the robots in my lab.
About 15 should do it,.
I need more Clockwork parts,. Get back on the streets.
- Collect sample parts
- Defeat 15 Clockwork
You have collected enough Clockwork parts.
|You collected these undamaged Clockwork parts so that your contact can recreate the Clockwork under laboratory conditions.|
Excellent work! I'll take these Clockwork parts to my lab and begin work on them. I'm sure I can figure out the Clockwork King's power source.
Destroy the Clockwork and recover the research data
Help! They're in my lab! The Clockwork King's robots! Believe me or not, , they're the same defunct robots you collected for me earlier. I don't know how it happened, but they're somehow functioning again!
I've sealed them in, but they'll get out eventually. You've got to destroy the Clockwork and recover the research data from my computer. Hurry, before they destroy it! The location of my lab is marked on your map.
That data is our only hope of defeating the Clockwork King!
Clear those Clockwork out of my lab!
You tread carefully through the mishmash of broken beakers and strange fluids.
- Defeat all Clockwork in lab
- Recover research data
You have cleared the lab and salvaged the computer data.
- Smoothbore (Clockwork Cannon Prince)
|This large body of data, compiled by your contact, indicates that no technological force could possibly power the Clockwork. In fact, the design of the robots seems to be quite haphazard, and no two are built from exactly the same parts.|
Thank you so much for combating those Clockwork in my lab. You saved some vital discoveries.
Well, I think I've figured out how the Clockwork operate. I had my lab cameras trained on those defunct Clockwork all night, and I just reviewed the film. It seems that the Clockwork slowly rose to life and began to reassemble each other! At the same time, my lab equipment detected a noticeable energy spike., the energy was psychic in nature!
As hard as it may be to believe, the Clockwork King must control his robots through psychic energy. Apparently, he's some sort of powerful telekinetic. That's how he makes his machines work, even though physics dictates they should be little more than wind-up toys.
Be introduced to Jim Temblor
Have you been to Faultline lately, ? The City's finally begun to rebuild the place! The Circle of Thorns have moved out, and the villain populations are down. Parts of it are almost as safe as any other part of the city. But there's still a lot of trouble out there. In fact, I recently heard about a young man by the name of Jim Temblor who's having some trouble, and could use some help.
Jim Temblor's problems mirror some of the trouble affecting Faultline as a whole. There's a lot of promise, if it doesn't get crushed beneath the weight of the past.
Oh, and take this briefing on the zone, too. It will get you up to speed on the area.
I'm sure Mr. Temblor will be pleased to meet a Hero like you.
You take the briefing on Faultline.
|Overbrook was built on top of one of the may tributaries leading into the small lake outside of town. Eventually, the city dammed the lake, turning it into the reservoir. Overbrook became a beautiful place, with waterfront property and gleaming skyscrapers. But this was not to last. Right after the war, the arch-villain Faultline tried to blackmail the city with his earthquake devices. A few novice heroes tried to stop him, but failed. The villain set off his machinery and leveled Overbrook. No one has heard from Faultline since, and the area adopted his name until this day. A lot of villains have crawled out of the woodwork to claim the ruins of this zone.
Recently, the city's begun to rebuild the zone. It won't be easy, and the criminal elements aren't leaving. They found out that many of the pre-war supergroups had their bases there, and are now trying to scavenge the ruins. While Longbow has set up near the dam, and the PPD have done their best to keep the rebuilt neighborhood of New Overbrook safe, every hero who can patrol the area is a big help to the reconstruction effort. Faultline isn't quite the trial zone anymore, but it's not a safe place.
- Meet Jim Temblor
Recover the Clockwork power source
My best Clockwork source tells me that the Clockwork have developed a new, miniaturized power source. They're storing it at an abandoned warehouse. Will you recover that Clockwork power source for us? It could tell us a lot.
Keep your eye out for a safe; my source thinks that's where they're keeping the power source.
We need to get a look at that new Clockwork power source.
This warehouse looks old and unused. Rusty bits of old machines are scattered on the floor.
- Defeat all robots in warehouse
- Locate the power source
You defeated the Clockwork and found the power source.
|To your eye, this device could not possibly be a power source. It shows no signs of energy emission, and it has no moving parts.|
- BadaBoom (Clockwork Cannon Prince)
Why would the Clockwork be guarding this device if it couldn't possibly provide any power? As usual, their actions don't make any sense.
Test Wave Scrambler against the Clockwork
We've tried slowing down the Clockwork with electromagnetic pulse weapons, but they did nothing. The boys at DATA want to try again, but now they want you to use a Wave Scrambler. It scrambles incoming signals of all wavelengths, and it may help us defeat this menace. Will you test the Wave Scrambler against the Clockwork?
I'm sure the boys at DATA will be grateful. You should be able to find Clockwork in Skyway City fairly easily.
+++ Missing Information +++
You will gain the Wave Scrambler temporary power upon accepting this mission. The power will be lost upon returning to the contact.
|Wave Scrambler Cone Special Damage, Foe -Recharge|
This device was built to interfere with Clockwork's energy signals within it's conical area of effect. The Wave Scrambler has 30 charges.
- Test Wave Scrambler
- Defeat 15 Clockwork
You have collected enough data on the Wave Scrambler.
Wow, that Wave Scrambler worked well. Maybe we've really found a good weapon for dealing with the Clockwork.
Speak with Longbow Liaison for Bloody Bay
I'm sure you've heard about what's going on in Bloody Bay. Longbow is recruiting heroes there to fight against the villains coming in from the Rogue Isles. Go talk with the Longbow Warzone Liaison for Bloody Bay over in Skyway City.
The Longbow Liaison will give you an appraisal of the situation in Bloody Bay. You can then make the choice whether you want to get involved or not.
Have you met with the Longbow Liaison yet?
- Speak to Longbow Liaison
Greetings, Bloody Bay is a Player Vs. Player zone. Bloody Bay is VERY dangerous, and if you go there, you almost certainly will be attacked by other players. Do not enter Bloody Bay unless you are willing to engage in Player Vs. Player combat.. I'm the Longbow Liaison for the Hero versus Villain PvP zone of Bloody Bay.
If you are interested in entering Bloody Bay, you can get there by climbing up to the rooftop of this building via the fire escape and talking with the helicopter pilot. Once you get to Bloody Bay, you can speak with Warzone Agent Eckman in the Longbow-controlled safe zone. She can provide you with your missions taking place throughout the zone. These missions will allow you to change the course of the battle by providing boosts to Heroes or penalties to Villains. Good luck!
I hope the Longbow Liaison provided you what you need to know about Bloody Bay.
Go to Boomtown and make sure the Trolls know you won't stand for assaults on citizens
The neighborhood watch in Boomtown has been reporting a lot of Troll assaults lately. It seems that the Trolls' enhanced strength and endurance has given them a feeling of superiority, and they're eager to prove that it's justified. You need to get over to Boomtown and make sure the Trolls know we won't stand for assaults on our citizens.
The Trolls like to hang out in Primer and the Fuze. Those are the neighborhoods I'd start with, if I were you.
- Combat Trolls in Boomtown
- Defeat 15 Trolls
You have discouraged the Trolls from assaulting the citizens of Boomtown.
Thanks. The Trolls will think twice before throwing their weight around in Boomtown again.
Get a sample of the Clockwork pistons
The Clockwork have been getting tougher recently. We think it might be the pistons they are using. Can you get us a sample of the Clockwork pistons?
We believe that Tarang Chonk is running the facility I am sending you to.
You haven't given me any Clockwork gears yet.
The doorknob has been removed, no doubt as part of the Clockwork's regular scavenging.
- Get sample from the Clockwork
- Seek Clockwork parts
You found the Clockwork pistons.
- The sample item that is to be recovered can vary. Possible samples include bearings, gear shafts and pistons.
- The mission objective is fulfilled when the Box of Parts is destroyed.
I'm not familiar with this metal, but I'll get it analyzed. Thanks a lot,.
You say the Clockwork seemed to recognize you? That's so strange. Perhaps they share some sort of hive memory? After all the Clockwork King's remarkable innovations, I guess that shouldn't surprise me.
Go to Skyway City and stop the Troll rampages
Have you heard of those Troll rampages in Skyway City? According to my reports, each Troll takes a heavy dose of Superadine, enough to make him nearly insane with fury. Then they hit the streets and destroy everything in sight. It's some sort of recreation for them! I need you to get to Skyway City and stop the Troll rampages. If you can't, that zone won't be safe for people or property.
Hide Park and the Land of the Lost have been hit recently. You might look for Trolls there.
+++ Missing Information +++
- Combat Trolls in Skyway City
- Defeat 15 Trolls
You have discouraged the Trolls from their drug-induced rampages.
The Trolls embrace all the effects of Superadine, both positive and negative. It's their willingness to subject themselves to the drug's ravages that makes them such an overwhelming force.
Break up the Trolls' contest of strength
The Trolls are running a contest of strength to determine which of their members will be promoted to leadership roles. The problem is, these contests are brutal fights that usually end with the winner going on a Superadine fueled rampage. Can you break up the Trolls' contest of strength? If you can, you'll probably save some lives. You only have 75 minutes to stop the Trolls' contest.
The Trolls probably have a cache of Superadine on hand for the winner. If you could destroy that, it would really ruin their contest.
I'd like you to take out the most powerful Trolls at that contest. That will mean fewer Troll bosses on the streets, and fewer violent assaults.
Deep-throated hoots and cheers echo through the cavern.
- Defeat Troll leaders, their crews - 1:15:00
- 4 drug caches to destroy
You stopped the Trolls' contest of strength.
- Clearing the last room is sufficient to complete the mission objective.
- The troll leaders are lieutenants and are not named.
Without a contest of strength, the Trolls' won't be promoting any new leaders. That should keep them from expanding for a while.
Hit the streets and show the Trolls you won't tolerate their thieving
I've been hearing a lot of reports about Troll robberies lately. As bad as the Troll are when they're hopped up on Superadine, they're even worse when they're in withdrawal! They'll knock over banks, newsstands, supermarkets; anything to get a quick fix! The worst thing is, these thefts usually end in violence. I need you to hit the streets and show the Trolls you won't tolerate their thieving.
- Combat Troll menace
- Defeat 15 Trolls
You have discouraged the Trolls from stealing to pay for their Superadine.
Thanks. I'm sure Paragon City's businessmen can all breathe a sigh of relief.
Stop the Trolls from hitting the party
I just got word from one of my informants that the Trolls have decided to bust up an underground dance party in Skyway City. It gets worse, though. The promoter running the show is the sister of a high-ranking Outcast gangster. If she gets hurt, the Outcasts will use it as a pretext to expand their war with the Trolls. Someone's got to stop the Trolls from hitting that party. You only have 1 hour to stop the Troll attack.
If the Outcasts have heard about this, there's a good chance you'll have to deal with them, too.
The way I hear it, that Troll attack is still on. I need you on hand to stop it.
Any music that was playing here stopped a while ago. Now all you hear are the sounds of fighting and panic.
- Rescue party goers from Trolls - 60 minutes timed
- 3 hostages to save
You have rescued the hostages, preventing the war between the Trolls and the Outcasts from escalating.
- Ellie Ludinsky, music promoter (Non-Escort Hostage)
- Paramedic (Non-Escort Hostage)
- Partier (Non-Escort Hostage)
- Njorl (Trolls Caliban) (Optional Boss)
The Paramedic will give you a Med Kit after being rescued. This power will expire when the mission ends.
|Med Kit Self Heal|
This Med Kit allows you to heal ¼ of your hit points. The Med Kit has 8 uses.
That was well handled. The tensions between rival gangs are bad enough; the last thing we need is for them to find an excuse to escalate their fighting. Oh, I got a call from that music promoter you rescued. She says if you ever consider a career in music, she'll be your biggest fan.
Go to Skyway City and stop the Clockwork from causing traffic accidents
The Clockwork have been causing car crashes in Skyway City so they can make off with the wreckage. We can't let this continue! You've got to get to Skyway City and stop the Clockwork from causing these traffic accidents.
Some of the worst accidents have taken place in Vista Plaza and the Gruff. I recommend starting in those neighborhoods.
+++ Missing Information +++
- Combat Clockwork in Skyway City
- Defeat 15 Clockwork
You have discouraged the Clockwork from causing traffic accidents in Skyway City.
Thanks for stopping the Clockwork from causing those car crashes. It's amazing to think that a few hunks of metal are worth more to the Clockwork King than a human life.
