Arr, Dread Tomax, I been hearin' some rumours. Have you heard of the Scrapyarders? They be these upstart miners who been causin' trouble here on Sharkhead. Occasionally they get put in their place, but their true leader is ever the elusive one! Yarrr, more slippery than a greased eel! Har har.
But things have changed. One of them there Freakshow fellas says he got a lead on the REAL leader of the Scrapyarders! Yaaaar, that information be worth a king's ransom! Break into the Freakshow base and take down their leader.
Yarrr, them Freakshow be tough customers,so show 'em that yer tougher!
Abandoned Warehouse @ Sharkhead Isle
From the depths of this ramshackle warehouse you hear music pounding out a hard rhythm.
Objective: You interrogate Hack Slash. He doesn't know anything about the Scrapyarders. That was another Freak named Eddie Crush, and he recently went to Paragon City to meet up with another Freakshow gang.
Mission Complete: You defeated the Freakshow leader!
Yarrr! So, he went to Paragon City, eh? Probably heard that we was comin' after him!
Take down Freakshow boss in Paragon City
So that Freakshow boss who goes by Eddie Crush has went and fled to the mainland, eh? Typical landlubber! Arrr, he probably was followin' up on whoever he thinks is the leader of them Scrapyarders! That's a powerful piece of information, means lots of money to whoever gets it!
We can't be letting this Eddie Crush be gettin' the prize here! Head over to Paragon City and take down the Freakshow boss.
Give those Freakshow a good beatin'!
The sound of gunfire meets the sound of metal on metal. It looks like a rumble!
Objective: You interrogate Bash Fission. He says that you're too late - some Council already swept in and made off with Eddie Crush. he overheard one of the soldiers say they were taking him back to the Council base on Sharkhead Isle.
Mission Complete: You defeated the Freakshow leader!
So the Council snatched Eddie Crush, eh? Curse them! They got some powerful interrogation methods at their disposal!
Get Eddie Crush out of Council base
Yarrr... so them Council fellas got ahold of that Freakshow named Eddie Crush. This be no good, Dread Tomax. Crush knows something about the true identity of the Scrapyarder leader, and that information is VERY valuable. What you need is to get Eddie Crush out of the Council base.
Them Council fellas play fer keeps, so don't be afraid to give 'em what for!
Council base @ Sharkhead Isle
You hear commands bark out over a loudspeaker. Your entrance has not gone unnoticed.
Mission Complete: You got Eddie Crush out of the Council base!
Eddie Crush relates that he was jackign some supplies at teh docks when he noticed a boat pull up from the mainland and was met by some Scrapyarders in one of the dockside warehouses. She delivered soem supplies to them there, and said how what they did honoured the memory of Scrapyard himself. The way she was talking about him, it sounds like she was really friendly with Scrapyard.
Ya found the information? Arrr, Dread Tomax, yer a top-notch thug, y'are!
Squeeze Scrapyarders for information
Well, Dread Tomax, we finally managed to track down that Freakshow called Eddie Crush and found out what he knew about the real leader of the Scrapyarders. Now we just need to head over to the warehouse and squeeze those Scrapyarders for more information! That is, assuming the Family hasn't caught them hangin' around there first!
Show 'em no mercy, Dread Tomax! Arrr...
You hear some angry shouts from within. It sounds like the Family caught the Scrapyarders in their warehouse!
Objective: You drill the Scrapyarder for information, and he grudgingly tells you that they were planning on meeting with their leader on an offshore cargo ship.
Mission Complete: You got the imfromation from the Scrapyarders!
Yarrr! Here's our chance, Dread Tomax, to nail this Scrapyarder leader for good! Har har!
Defeat Scrapyarder leader
Arrr, Dread Tomax! Ya did a fine job in trackin' down that Scrapyarder who knew something about who the Scrapyarder leader is and where she be. Now we need to grab her for ourself!
Once we know who the Scrapyarder leader is that information should prove invaluable!
The cargo ship is riding in the water after unloading its supplies at the dock.
Objective: Spinnerette reveals that she took the place of the real Scrapyarder leader.
|Spinnerette [Elite Boss]|
Spinnerette is a lieutenant of the Scrapyarder hero known as Iron Widow. She is a champion of the Scrapyarder cause in Sharkhead.
Mission Complete: You defeated Spinnerette!
Arrr! That wasn't the Scrapyarder leader? T'underlin' trouts! They must have gotten wise to us!
Let me check into this further.
Kidnap Iron Widow from Council base
I've got some bad news for ya, Dread Tomax! You know how those Council lubbers were also lookin' for the Scrapyarder boss? Well, they've gotten more success from their interrogations, finding out the Scrapyarder leader is a woman called Iron Widow, Scrapyard's widow! What's more, they've got the Scrapyarder leader in the base on Sharkhead! it sounds like Marshall Brass is coming with a large Arachnos force from Villa Requin to incarcerate the Scrapyarder leader.
We need to move quickly! Break into the Council base and kidnap Iron Widow.
You have 90 minutes to complete this mission, and Iron Widow must survive!
Arrr! This be our last chance, Dread Tomax! I'll have some of me boys ready to grab her when you get her out of the Council base.
Council Base @ Sharkhead Isle
Klaxxon horns announce your presence to the Council troops within. You're expected!
Objective: Iron Widow is taken away by Petrovich's men.
Mission Complete: You kidnapped Iron Widow!
Arrr, Dread Tomax! You did a fine job in gettin' Iron Widow out of that Council base. e boys got her clear of the base ... and back to the mainland.
Yer probably wonderin' why the devil a filthy old sea dog like myself would want to get Iron Widow to safety after all the work we did to find her, and the wealth to be had by sellin' her to Marshall Brass. Truth be told, I used to know the man known as Scrapyard back in the day, the fella who started the Scrapyarders and was murdered by captain Mako. He was a proud man with a sense of hunour, somethin' I never had with all the blood and thievin' in my life. I could have helped Scrapyard on the docks when he was murdered, but I figured then it was none of my business. his screams haunt me to this day. When I heard that the Scrapyarder leader was about to be caught, I knew I had to do somethin' to honur the memory of Scrapyard. And that's why I set Iron Widow free!
This one act may never redeem me for my lifetime of treachery, but I did what I needed to do. You may want to send me to Davy Jones' locker for deceivin' ya, Dread Tomax. I know I've slit men's throats for less. But I'm not quite done with this life yet, so I'll bargain with ya for my life. I ain't got much, but take this - it's Scrapyard's wedding ring; it's all that was left of him after Mako got through with him.
Souvenir: Scrapyard's Wedding Ring
This is a very nice gold wedding ring worn by the deceased hero known as Scrapyard. you received it from Captain Petrovich in a tale you like to call:
It all started when the old sea captain known as Petrovich asked about helping him track down a valuabel piece of information - the identity of the elusive Scrapyarder leader. Word on teh street was that some of theFreakshow had a lead on this, so you busted into one of their bases and got one of their bosses, hack Slash, to spill what he knew. it turns out that Eddie Crush, another of the Freakshow bosses, just caught the latest ship en route to Paragon City to meet with one of the other Freakshow gangs.
Travelling to Paragon City after Eddie Crush, you found the Freakshow gang in a rumble with a Council assault team. Finding the leader of the Freakshow, you found that you had come too late: Eddie Crush had been taken back to the Council base at Sharkhead Isle for interrogation.
Back on Sharkhead Isle, you attacked the Council base where they took Eddie Crush, fighting your way through to where Eddie was being interrogated. Eddie agreed to tell you waht he knew if you got him out of the base. It turns out that Eddie noticed a woman meeting with some Scrapyarders by a warehouse at the docks and delivered them some supplies.
Heading over to the warehosue, you found that the Scrapyarders were in conflict with the Family members who owned the place. Fighting through them, you interrogated the Scrapyarder leader, who revealed that the lady they met was on a cargo ship returning to the mainland right now.
You headed over to the cargo ship and fought your way past Scrapyarders to discover the woman behind it - only to reveal that she replaced the real Scrapyarder leader at the last minute! Apparently, the Scrapyarder forces got wise to you.
Returning to Petrovich, you found that the Council managed to secure the real Scrapyarder leader, a woman known as Itron Widow. They were awaiting the arrival of Marshall Brass at their base on Sharkhead Isle, so you had a short time to act. Breaking into the base, you managed to get Iron Widow out of the base where she was taken away by Petrovich's men. Returning to Petrovich one final time, you discovered that he let Iron Widow go! Petrovich tells of how he had failed to prevent Scrapyard's murder at the hands of Captain Mako a while back and decided to make amends by helping Scrapyard's wife, Iron Widow, escape. Bargaining for his life, Petrovich gives you Scrapyard's wedding ring, all that was left of Scrapyard once Captain mako got through with him.
