Defeat Tsoo in Talos Island and Independence Port
I'm worried about the Tsoo, Red Tomax. My sources tell me those power hungry gangsters have some big plan in the works, but nobody seems to know anything specific. I think you should hit the streets of Talos Island and take down as many Tsoo as you can. Maybe one of them will give us a clue about their next move. When you're done clearing Talos, move on to Independence Port.
We're gonna need some solid stuff to go on, but I'm sure you can find it.
Defeat X @ Talos Island (Tsoo)
Mission Complete: You've defeated enough Tsoo in Talos Island.
I don't recognise any of the buildings in these blueprints that Tsoo gangster was carrying. We'll have to continue this line of investigation.
Take the blueprints over to Warren
I know this guy in the FBI, Warren Trudeau. He might be able to ID the buildings the Tsoo are interested in. Take the blueprints over to Warren, won't you, Red Tomax?
It's kinda scary how many blueprints are here. Looks like the Tsoo could be planning something big.
If you found these blueprints on a Tsoo gangster, they're probably planning a strike. I'll have someone at the bureau compare the blueprints to the city planner's files. If a match comes up, I'll let you know.
Thanks for getting those blueprints over to Warren, Red Tomax. I'm sure he'll be able to ID the buildings the Tsoo are interested in.
Search the Tsoo base for the artifacts
One of my sources called me with some disturbing news. It seems the Tsoo have amassed quite an impressive array of artifacts lately; it's the type of stuff the Outcasts and Warriors go crazy over. Can you go search this Tsoo base for the artifacts? Thanks, Red Tomax. I hear the leader of the base is called Copperhead. See if you can find out what he's plotting.
Warren hasn't yet been able to ID the buildings in those blueprints you found on the Tsoo. The minute I learn something, I'll let you know.
You hear the grunts and shouts of young men engaged in earnest battle. You may have stumbled into the middle of a gang war.
Objective: You found some documents.
Mission Complete: You defeated Copperhead and uncovered the trap laid for the Warriors.
So there were no artifacts at that Tsoo base at all, just a trap for the Warriors? Sorry I got you mixed up in this, but I think that your presence prevented the Tsoo from gaining further ground. According to these documents you found, the Tsoo are trying to take down both the Warriors and the Family! Red Tomax, we could be looking at a major showdown.
Stop the Tsoo from taking over all the gangs of Paragon City
Warren Trudeau just got back to me. he's ID's all the buildings in those blueprints you found on the Tsoo. Three of them are front companies for Family operations. The other two are over on Talos Island. They're empty right now, which makes them perfect meeting places for the Warriors.
It looks like the Tsoo are planning a major hit on both the Family and the Warriors. Red Tomax, get out there and stop the Tsoo from taking over all the gangs of Paragon City!
See if you can get some more heroes to help you with this one. I am afraid that if the Tsoo are successful, Tub Ci will be mayor of Paragon City tomorrow.
You enter with caution. This place has long been a suspected hideout of the Family.
Objective: You found a key
Mission Complete: You defeated all the villains in the first building.
The lobby has been ripped apart, tables and chairs thrown every which way.
Objective: One of the Family thugs you defeated was carrying a key.
Mission Complete: You defeated all the villains in the second building.
Warehouse @ Independence Port
On the floor, you spot a set of wire clippers and an annoted set of floor plans. Perhaps the Tsoo are setting up a more explosive hit than normal.
Objective: You found a key.
Mission Complete: You defeated all the villains in the third building.
You're in Warrior territory now, and they won't be happy to see you.
Mission Complete: You defeated all the villains in the fourth building.
This ordinary office building houses the final battle of this marathon campaign. The Tsoo are almost thwarted.
Mission Complete: You have prevented the Tsoo from taking over the gangs of Paragon City.
To be honest, for a minute there I wasn't sure you could thwart the Tsoo campaign to take over the other gangs. Guess you showed me!
You did an excellent job today, Red Tomax. If not for you, the Tsoo would have quickly established utter dominance over the streets of Paragon City. I heard through the grapevine that their leader, Tub Ci, ordered a hit on you. Don't worry, no one has been bold enough to step forward and take that contract. not after the world of hurt you put on the Tsoo today.
Souvenir: Tsoo Dagger
You've kept this ancient Tsoo dagger as a reminder of the time you thwarted:
The Tsoo Coup
It all began when you took to the streets to battle the Tsoo of Independence Port and Talos Island. During these skirmishes. you learned that the Tsoo were planning a takeover of Paragon City. You also discovered a tube containing the blueprints to five buildings. You took the blueprints to Agent Warren Trudeau of the FBI. who promised he would identify the buildings for you.
Shortly afterward. your contact got word of a large shipment of artifacts in the hands of the Tsoo. You went to recover these artifacts. only to find out that the rumors were nothing but a trap designed to snare some of the more powerful members of the Warriors.
When Agent Trudeau learned the identities of the buildings. you realized that three were Family front companies and two were probable Warriors' hangouts. The Tsoo attacked them all within hours. but quick action on your part prevented the Tsoo from annihilating their targets.
Furious at his failure to take over the gangs of Paragon City. Tub Ci ordered a hit on you. but no one has yet been bold enough to take the contract.
