Discover source of disturbance
I have senses which are highly attuned to psychic manifestations. Earlier today I sensed a disturbance coming from Sharkhead. Discover the source of these psychic emanations.
This may be something valuable or dangerous. Or both.
Instanced Outdoor [Hell Forge] @ Sharkhead Isle (Arachnos,Longbow,Freakshow,Vindicators)
This part of the Hell Forge is overrun with Freakshow.
Objective: You found something!
Mission Complete: You have discovered the source of the psychic disturbance!
What are these crystals? They resonate with psychic energy! I must know more..
Steal geological records
These crystals you discovered in the Pit on Sharkhead Isle are amazing. While they contain some trace amounts of psychic energy, they seem to be able to do much more. I must know if there have been other similar finds, and by whom. Break into the local surveyor office and find any record of strange geological discoveries.
The only thing you'll have to worry about is security guards. Of course, these are Rogue Isles security guards...
You slip into the offices of the Rogue Isles Survey Company.
Objective: You found nothing
Objective: You found something!
Mission Complete: You got the survey information!
A previous crystal discovery was secured by Longbow? They must have realized its potential power. We must find out what they have discovered!
Interrogate Longbow scientist
Longbow has been doing research on psi-crystals like the ones you found in the Pit on Sharkhead. I want to know what they have discovered so we can unlock the secrets of the crystals. Break into the Longbow base and interrogate the research scientist.
I've mind-controlled the crew of a sub at Agincourt to allow you to reach the research base. Get moving.
You leave the sub and enter into the Longbow research base.
|Longbow Ballista [Elite Boss]|
The Ballista are Longbow's heaviest hitters. These tankers are tough enough to withstand direct hits from rocket launchers, and can dish out enough damage to take out the toughest brute Arachnos can throw at them.
Mission Complete: You interrogated the scientist!
GIFT is doing the research now? Well, they'll probably get better results than those incompetent fools at Longbow.
Interrogate GIFT researcher
GIFT works with some of the top mutant psychics around - it's no wonder Longbow shipped the psi-crystals over to them. I need to find out what the GIFT researchers have discovered about the crystals. Break into the GIFT research center and interrogate the head researcher.
I sense we are close to finding something very important.
Somewhere in the office is the GIFT researcher who has information on the psi-crystals.
Mission Complete: You got the research data!
Ah, so the psi-crystal can be used to steal psychic energies? Most interesting. I think I have a plan.
Steal components, defeat guards
Now that I know what the psi-crystals can be used for, I have a plan to take out a certain heroic rival of mine named Aurora Borealis. I understand she's doing work at a hospital for victims for Rikti experimentations, which gives me an idea. Dr. Aeon has developed a device called a Psionic Activator which unlocks psychic potential in psi-latent targets. Unfortunately, the device does so at the cost of the person's sanity, leaving them nothing more than a ravening monster. This fits perfectly into my plan! Break into the Arachnos lab and steal the components for the Psionic Activator.
Arachnos troops guard Aeon labs. Do not do them permanent harm, as we do not wish to raise the ire of Lord Recluse.
Arachnos base @ St. Martial
Boots of Arachnos troops recede into the distance.
Objective: You found something
Mission Complete: You found the components for the Psionic Activator!
Ah, the components for the Psionic Activator. This should be child's play for me to put togther. Give me a moment.
Defeat Aurora Borealis and allies
It's time to put my plan into action! I will lay lo wmy psychic rival, the famous Aurora Borealis! She's meddled in my plans for far too long! Aurora Borealis is currently in a Paragon City hospital helping victims of Rikti experimentation. Her pathetic sympathy shall be her downfall! I will give you the Psionic Activator you stole from the Aeon lab - use it on the Rikti experimentation victims and you'll gain allies for your fight against Aurora Borealis and her Longbow compatriots!
Know that the fight against urora Borealis will not be an easy one. You might require aid from other villains in order to defeat her.
When you have defeated her, I will feed upon her psychic energies through the psi-crystals.
Psymon Omega gives you the Psionic Activator!
Laboratory @ Nerva Archipelago
This high-tech hospital was created to help victims of Rikti experimentation.
Objective: The stasis tude is destroyed!
|Aurora Borealis [Hero]|
Before the Rikti War, Aurora Scott was just a fledgling hero doing her best for the city she loved. Afterward, she was something else entirely. Aurora played host to Sister Psyche's mind after the Freedom Phalanx heroine was injured in the war. After gladly sacrificing her autonomy so that Sister Psyche could continue to serve, Aurora's just now returning to her own life. And she's got a few bones to pick with the villains who flourished in her absence.
Mission Complete: You have defeated Aurora Borealis!
Ah, the sweet taste of Aurora Borealis' psychic energies. It's like a nectar for the mind. Deliciuos.
Souvenir: Aurora Borealis' Tiara
This is Aurora Borealis' tiara, taken when you defeated her in a tale you like to call:
It all started when Psymon Omega got you to check into the source of a psychic disturbance on Sharkhead Isle. Travelling to the Pit, you found the Freakshow attempting to remove some strange crystals they found while scavenging there. Returning to Psymon, he related that the crystlas seemed to sing with psychic energy.
Psymon was intrigued by the crystals, and wanted to know more. He sen tyou to the loval geological survey office to see if there were any other recorded discoveries of the rock. Breaking past office security, you found files mentioning an earlier discover. The crystals were secured by Longbow and taken to one of their local research bases.
Psymon desperately wanted th research data and sent you to retrieve it. You invaded the Longbow base and interrogated the scientist. You discovered Longbow couldn't make heads or tails out of the crystal's properties and so passed it on to cohorts over at GIFT in Paragon City.
At the GIFT office you forced a reseaarcher to give you all the data on the psi-crystals. The research revealed the psi-crystals allowed someone to steal a person's psychic energies to use for themself.
Psymon had a plan to take out one of the psychic rivals who was helping victim's of Rikti experimentation at a local hospital. Psymon's plan involved stealing the components for a Psionic Activator from one of Dr. Aeon's labs. The device awakens psychic powers in psi-latent targets at the cost of their sanity. Fighting your way past Arachnos guards, you managed to acquire the device.
Psymon completed the Psionic Activator and passed it on to you, allowing you to use it to awaken th spychic energies of the Rikti victims, making them into your minions. You then staged your attack on the hopital, fighting past Longbow guards to get to Aurora Borealis herself! Psymon used the psi-crystals to steal her psychic energies for himself, boosting his own powers considerably.
