Cull Arachnoids in Gutter
How do you feel about doing some Arachnoid huntin' in the Gutter? They get so think in there that we gotta cull 'em back sometime. If you're interested, you can head in and start thinning out the Arachnoids.
They can be cunning sometimes, so watch out for ambushes!
Mission Complete: You culled enough Arachnoids!
Nice work, Dread Tomax! That oughta thin their numbers a bit!
There's gotta be a better way of dealing with those critters. Maybe some kind of new weapon...
Find chemical weapon in Crey lab
Nice job cleaning out those Arachnoids in the Gutter. Y'know what I said about finding something to take out Arachnoids better? Well, I know Crey is always messing around with science and biology and stuff. I heard from a buddy of mine that Crey's got a chemical research lab in Cap au Diable where they just got in a shipment of heavy-duty pesticides, so maybe we can find something that'll do the trick against these Arachnoids. Head over to teh Crey lab and see if you can find anything I can use agaist the Arachnoids.
Crey makes all kinds of great experimental weapons. Finding a good general purpose gas weapon would be great!
Laboratory @ Cap au Diable
There's gotta be something good Dobbs can use against the Arachnoids. Find it!
Objective: You found something
Objective: You found something
Mission Complete: You secured the chemical weapon!
W-whaaat? Crey's messin' with the Arachnoids? Underneath St. Martial? What the heck? I expected to find some good chemical weapons, but I didn't expect custom made 'Arachnoid-B-Gone' stuff! What the heck are they up to?
Clear out Arachnoid tunnels
Well, I don't know why Crey is messin' with Arachnoids, btu as long as they're coming up with ways to put 'em down, I'm fine with that! Those field test reports point to Arachnoid caves under St. Martial, tho! I don't like the fact that the Arachnoids are making their way off of Grandville. We'd pest do a bit of our own field testing! Head over to those Crey testing grounds and clear out those Arachnoid tunnels!
If Crey's just finding a way to get rid of Arachnoids, it's all good. Somehow I don't think Crey is being all that benevolent.
You hear the sound of a radio in the distance. Not what you'd expect from Arachnoid tunnels...
Objective: You find an odd tag on the Arachnoid
Mission Complete: You cleared out the tunnels!
What the heck is Crey doing with these Arachnoids? I thought they were killin' the critters first, but if they're taggin' those things.... I don't like the sound of this, Dread Tomax!
Find files on Crey experimentation
So... I really don't like the fact that Crey is messin' around with the Arachnoids. Sure, they're coming up with heavy-duty pesticides to control 'em, but they're also doin' other types of experiments. Now, the last thing we need is Crey letting loose a bunch of super-duper Arachnoids with extra cheese onto the world if you know what I mean!
Let's find out more about what Crey is up to! There's a Crey building on St. Martial near the Arachnoid caves which might give us a good clue as to what they're up to. Head over there and ransack their files!
I ain't an espionage kinda guy, but this is probably worth lookin' into.
This Crey lab is in full alert. Find those files!
Mission Complete: You found the research files!
These are a series of files on the subjects known as A-456, otherwise known as Arachnoids. It looks like Crey has been doing research on the Arachnoids in an attempt to make a trained group of mutant shock troups while developing a series of countermeasures to any Arachnos-controlled Arachnoids. The project lead is a Crey scientist name Doctor Reaves base at a Crey tech facility in Paragon City.
Ah geez. This is bad. REAL bad. Arachnoid shock troops? This can get out of hand REAL quick.
Report to Arbiter Daos
Okay, Dread Tomax, we're getting' in WAY over our heads here! Getting in the way of Crey secret projects can get us killed! We gotta talk to Big Brother about this, and when I say that I mean Arachnos! I been told to talk to Arbiter Daos if I come across anything which 'compromises Arachnos security' or somethin', and I think this qualifies! Head over and tell our predicament to Arbiter Daos!
I'm washin' my hands of this, Kung-Fu Jesus! You just talk to Daos and do what he says!
Crey is performing experiments on Arachnoids? And you have proof of this? Very interesting.
Please inform Mr. Dobbs that this information is very useful to Arachnos, and we appreciate him bringing this to light. I'll begin preparations to counter this little Crey problem. I suggest you return to Mr. Dobbs to await further instructions. Thank you for your assistance. Remember our motto: Strength through Undying Loyalty.
Arachnos is gettin' ready to act against Crey? Oh, man - I don't want to be caught in the middle of this!
Stop Crey Arachnoid research
I just got a call from Arbiter Daos - he says he wants you to lead a counterstrike against the main Crey facility involved in the experimentation with the Arachnoids! Head over to the Crey facility in Paragon City and take down the leader of the Arachnoid project!
Daos said you're going to need to take down the Crey project leader and destroy the research they have. Best of luck to ya!
Laboratory @ Grandville
Find Doctor Cooper and destroy his research data!
Objective: You destoryed the statis tube!
Objective: You have defeated Doctor Cooper!
Objective: You destroyed the research data!
Mission Complete: You stopped the Crey Arachnoid research!
Nice work, Dread Tomax! Arbiter Daos told me to pass on a big thanks for helping shut down the Crey Arachnoid research project! I best those Crey jerks never knew what hit 'em!
Souvenir: Altered Arachnoid DNA
This is a sample of altered Arachnoid DNA that Crey Industries was fooling around with in a tale you like to call:
Building a Better Vermin
It all started when Terrence Dobbs asked you to help cull some of the Arachnoid population down in the Gutter of Grandville. Dobbs thanked you for your assistance, but commented on how he wish he had a better weapon for dealing with Arachnoids.
Dobbs heard from one of his contacts that Crey was working on some bio-weapons at one of their labs in Cap Au Diable, and wanted you to break in and see if you could find anything to use against the Arachnoids. You found a weapon alright, along with indications that Crey was doing extensive research on Arachnoids!
Dobbs wanted to find out more, and sent you to investigate some caves under St. Martial where Crey supposedly was conducting field tests. You found a number of Crey there in some Arachnoid tunnels, as well as a tagged Arachnoid marked as a research subject!
Dobbs sent you to check out the Crey office nearby the Arachnoid tunnels found on St. Martial. There, you found research files detailing how Crey was developing Arachnoid countermeasures to deal with any Arachnos-controlled threat, as well as developing a new strain of Arachnoids which Crey could use as shock troops!
Dobbs felt he was in over his head, and so decided to turn matters over to Arachnos. He got you take all the evidence to Arbiter Daos, who decided to enact protocols to shut down the Crey Arachnoid research operations.
Arbiter Daos sent you to the main Crey research facility in Paragon City to deal with the Crey scientist responsible for the Arachnoid research project and destroy their main database. Having dealt with the Crey threat to Arachnos security, Arbiter Daos gave you his thanks.
