Clean out the Clockwork warehouse
We've uncovered another nest of Clockwork in an abandoned warehouse. I need a hero to get in there and clean out the Clockwork warehouse. If we don't move fast, these metal monstrosities will take over our city.
As always, look for clues about the locations of other nests.
Abandoned warehouse @ Kings Row (Clockwork)
The sharp, chemical scent of machine oil cuts through the musty odor of old dust.
Objective: You found an interesting note on the bulletin board.
Mission Complete: You defeated the Clockwork and found a clue.
This note you found certainly does make it seem like someone is being forced to help the Clockwork King. I will get the word out on the street. maybe we can find this man before it's too late.
Hit the streets and take down some Clockwork minions
These Clockwork are becoming a serious problem. There is another nest somewhere in the city, but we are having a hard time finding its exact location. Maybe you could hit the streets and take down some Clockwork minions. You might be able to get a sense of where they're coming from.
Good luck, and try to figure out where they are coming from!
Defeat x @ Any (Clockwork)
Look at this! It looks like someone is being imprisioned by the Clockwork!
The note on the bulletin board, the engraved clockwork robot. They both point to the same conclusion: soemone is being forced to work for the Clockwork. It's up to you to do something about it.
Rescue the kidnapping victim before the Clockwork can move him
According to the leads from you last two Clcokwork misisons, someone is being held captive by the Clockwork. I've had all my heroes workign on the case, and I have a lead on the place where this guy is being held. It's an old warehouse. You better rescue that kidnapping victim before the Clcokwork can move him again!
Finding this man may do more than save his life; it may clue us in to the King's next big plot!
Abandoned office (Clockwork)
The systematic scavenging of metal from the door frames shows that the Clockwork have found a use for this old office.
Objective: You found a key.
Objective: You found a note shoved into the back panel of a locker.
Mission Complete: You found a garbled note. Perhaps your contact can decipher it.
The kidnapped man wasn't there? they must have moved him! I hope this note you found can lead us to his new location.
This note looks like it could be an address, or an itersection of some sort. It must be a clue to the victim's location; we just need to figure it out!
Take the note to the city representative
It's too bad you didn't get to the warehouse in time to save that kidnapping victim. But at least he was clever enough to leave us a note. Will you take the note over to the city representative? I'm hoping she can tell us if it refers to some location inside the city.
Hurry back; we probably don't have much time.
Your friend was right. This is an intersection, though not of two streets. It's an old annex to the sewer system, off the main lines. Here, take this map back to your contact and see if you can come up with a plan.
Aha, so the note did give us an address! Now that we have a map to this new location, we should be able to find the kidnapped man quickly.
Find the man the Clockwork are holding hostage
The Clockwork don't know the man they kidnapped managed to leave you a clue to his location. So they won't be expecting trouble. you should enter the sewers at this point. I hope you can find the man the Clockwork are holding hostage.
Good luck, Red Tomax. I don't think I have to tell you how important this mision is.
Ah, the sewers of Paragon City, will you ever be able to forget this smell?
Mission Complete: You rescued Lou, the mechanic forced to work for the Clockwork.
When you rescued him, Lou said:
'You! You must have gotten all the clues I left. Oh, thank heavens! They forced me to help them with their insane designs. None of those designs should have worked at all, but somehow they did.
I'm grateful for my freedom, but the Clockwork still have my wife and daughter! They are holding them hostage; I don't know where. Please save Eunice and Caroline for me! Please!'
I never doubted you'd rescue that mechanic from the Clockwork. I still can't believe his family's been kidnapped too. It's just so horrible! How could any sane person do such a thing?
So Lou was being forced to help the Clockwork King, even though he couldn't understand the engineering ehind any of the King's designs? Strange. Where is the logic behind this crime?
Find a clue that will lead you to Lou's missing wife and daughter
You did good work rescuing that mechanic from the Clockwork, Red Tomax, but your job isn't over yet. We still need to find a clue that will lead us to Lou's missing wife and daughter. I need you to head over to Lou's shop and look for a lead.
Lou said he usually keeps the back room locked. You may have to look around for a key..
Warehouse [Lou's Garage] @ Kings Row (Clockwork)
You saw a Clockwork minion entering Lou's shop. It was carryign a bag of groceries, obviously not for itself. You deduce that the Clockwork King has been keeping Lou's family here all along.
Objective: On one of the Clockwork minions, you found a key.
Mission Complete: You rescued Lou's family!
Lou called. His wife and kid are back home with him, and he's eternally grateful to you. Red Tomax, I'm proud to have worked with you on this.
You did a great thing today, Red Tomax. Lou and his family are safe at home, and the Clockwork King is short a few more minions. I really wonder what he expected to get out of Lou. According to Lou, the Clockwork are mechanically impossible, yet they work nevertheless. This is going to require further investigation.
Souvenir: An etched Clockwork piece
You've kept this piece of Clockwork robot with the words 'help me' scratched into it. it's a reminder of the mechanic Lou. whose family you rescued from the Clockwork King in a mission you've come to think of as:
The Clockwork Captive.
It began with a couple of routine Clockwork missions. While clearing out a Clockwork nest. you found a note indicating that a man was being held captive by the Clockwork. While defeating Clockwork on the streets of paragon City. you found a Clockwork robot with the words 'help me' inscribed on its surface.
Your contact sent you to a Clockwork den to find the missing man. but you returned with only a scribbled note. The words 'CVX-1701 jucntion RVB-0070' were the only legible text. Your contact suspected these words were an address and sent you to the city representative to test this theory.
Your contact was correct. the note referred to an address of sorts: an unused annex of the sewer system. You journeyed there and rescued the mechanic from the Clockwork. Lou had some interesting observations about the engineering of the Clockwork. Despite the obvious fact that their robots do function. Lou claimed their designs were technically impossible.
Lou also told you that his wife and daughter had been kidnapped to ensure his cooperation. You went to Lou's shop to look for clues and discovered that the woman had been held there all along. You freed them and repelled the Clockwork infestation from Lou's shop.
