Mission:Tip - Lacquered Porcelain Shard

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Lacquered Porcelain Shard (40-50)

You find a shard of lacquered porcelain. Looking it over, something piques your interest.

After studying the shard of porcelain, you can feel that the lacquer has not fully set, due to the mild stickiness of the surface. As you're about to toss the shard away, you recall hearing that the Carnival of Shadows has been working on this side of the pond lately. If this shard came from one of DeVore's masks, then it seems she's creating them somewhere nearby.

The masks worn by members of the Carnival are reputed to draw energy from the wearer and give their energy to a master mask. If these masks are being produced nearby, it's possible that you might be able to extract the secrets of the masks from the people actually making them. And with those secrets in hand, you just might find a way to make a master mask of your own and create your own network of psychics.

However, if these masks actually are able to offer its wearer these powers, this might be your opportunity to stop the competition from moving in on business. At the very least, it'll be fun to hear the Carnival Queen's screams of anger echoing through the Rogue Isles.

Villain Acceptance

Briefing

Everybody knows what the Carnival of Shadows' masks do. In short: the wearer of the master mask draws power from those wearing other lesser masks. Not to mention the wearer of the master mask can see through the eyes of everyone on that psychic network. You definitely want in on that. Perhaps you can convince one of these mask makers in the nearby mask making facility to build you one of these master masks.

  • Convince the Carnival to build you a master mask.

Considering how tight lipped the Carnival members have been in the past about anything to do with their organization, you doubt they're just going to 'fess up right away. You'll likely need to be very convincing.

Unnecessary Solicitation

A Carnival master mask isn't going to just present itself. You better head off to complete your scheme.

Rogue Acceptance

Briefing

The Carnival, they--like the Freakshow--know how to throw a good party, but they can sure be a thorn in your side. You've been presented with a perfect opportunity to shut down the Carnival mask production process for a good while. All you have to do is destroy whatever masks they've already created and take out whoever creates these masks. Afterall, you can't have these idiot clowns interfering in your business.

  • Destroy the Carnival masks!

Since this lacquer is still sticky, that would not only mean their facility is somewhere nearby, but it would also point to a way to ruin their scheme. Find where they're making these masks, destroy them and then take out whoever is responsible for making them.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You've got a great opportunity to really hit them right where it hurts! You set off to take out that mask production plant.


Mission Objective(s)

From the sounds of the commotion and horrible calliope music playing, it looks like you found the factory you were looking for.

  • Destroy the Carnival masks!
    • 3 Crates of Carnival Masks to Destroy
    • Defeat the Mask Tender
    • Defeat the Overseer Mistress to escape!

You've completely shut down the Carnival mask production facility. That'll likely hurt the Carnival of Shadows for some time to come.

Debriefing

You successfully destroyed all of the masks in this warehouse and the Carnival Mask Tender who is capable of creating new masks. This will likely slow the Carnies down for awhile, but will really anger Vanessa DeVore.
