Agree to form a Strike Force

Lord Recluse

I have witnessed your journey through the Rogue Isles. You have clawed your way to the top, performing all manner of vile act to prove yourself stronger and more capable then [sic] the rest of my Destined Ones. You have even bested one of my trusted lieutenants, a feat few have done before. In the end I thought you a liability, having used Project DESTINY to see into the future and witness a possible death of the world - my rightful domain! - at your hands. But you have a depth of villainy and strength more powerful than even I had imagined. You discovered my contingency plans and sent me a very clear warning as to what would happen if I enacted my plans, and it is something I will not forget!

You know of my plans for Project DESTINY, to engineer my eventual victory by manipulating the timestreams of the future, eliminating unfavorable results until only my ultimate triumph remains! And you know the greatest threat to my goals is that epitome of follish heroic virtue, Statesman! Statesman. Long has he been a thorn in my side, him and his legion of heroes who constantly attempt to thwart my operations at every turn. If you help me deal with the troublesome Statesman, I will asure you a place of honor in my future triumph!

There is an Arachnos flyer ready to take you to your destination. As soon as you get there my operatives will start jamming transmissions so they don't let anyone know you have the security codes. We also have an advance force there to assist you in the assault.

You will be known as Strike Force Redback!

Part 1: Assault Longbow Base (5 Bombs to set, Kidnap Technician, Lead Technician to computer, Defeat Crimson, Destroy 12 Chasers)
Instanced Outdoor [Vindicator's Base] @ Grandville

Find the security codes for the Vindicator's base!

Objective: You have set the bomb!

Objective: You have defeated Agent Crimson!

Longbow BallistaLongbow 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.
Agent CrimsonAgent Crimson [Hero]
Rumours abound throughout the villain underground about two incredibly dangerous government operatives, code-named Agent Crimson and Agent Indigo. Crimson is the wet-work specialist. A highly-trained agent with superhuman senses, Crimson has cut down several potential threats to the world before they could achieve their plans.

Mission Complete: You got the security codes!

ClueVindicator's Base Security Codes

These are the security codes for the Vindicator's base in the Nerva Archipelago. They should be able to get you past the worst of the Vindicator's base defenses.

Lord Recluse

With the security codes in hand you should easily be able to overcome the worst of the Vindicator's base security!

You have done well, Strike Force Redback!


Assault Malta Base

Lord Recluse

Now that we have the security passcodes, we can continue with the next stage of our plan! Malta has proven to be an important asset to Arachnos. Their advanced weaponry and skilled personnel are excellent, and they are the perfect mercenaries to use when Arachnos wants to disassociate themselves from a delicate operation. However, they sometimes overstep their bounds, especially when it comes to acquiring knowledge aiding them in the defeat of super-powered beings. Not long ago, we found a Malta infiltration team in one of our Project FURY research labs, downloading information on the project. Some of their infiltration team must have escaped with the data, because some of our Arachnos spies have discovered Malta has developed a very interesting weapon based on Project FURY theoretical technology - the Orestes Rifle! This potent techno-magical weapon is designed to dispel mystical enchantments derived from the Well of Furies, such as those derived by Ms. Liberty's magical belt! This should prove very useful in the upcoming battle.

Malta has developed a robots and weapons manufacturing base in Warburg, a hotspot for armed conflict between heroes and villains. The base is headed up by a robotics engineering genius known as Slinger. While the main goal is to obtain the Orestes rifle, Slinger must be punished for his involvement in theft from Arachnos. Head to the Malta base, destroy their research databanks, steal the Orestes Rifle and take down Slinger!

Malta has many secret training enclaves spread throughout the Rogue Isles. Because of the theft from Arachnos they chose to develop this weapon on the mainland. There's an Arachnos flyer waiting to take you there. Once you have acquired the Orestes Rifle you will need to hurry - once it is removed from it's special Malta power feed, it will lose power quickly.

Part 2: Assault Malta Base (Steal Orestes Rifle, Defeat Slinger, Steal keycard, Destroy mainframe & guards)
Instanced Outdoor [Sharkhead Isle] @ Grandville

Once the Orester Rifle is in your hand, you will be unstoppable!

Objective: You found the keycard to the warehouse!

Objective: You have destroyed the research mainframe!

Objective: You got the Orestes Rifle!

Kronos Class TitanKronos Class Titan [Monster]
The mammoth Kronos Class Titans are the pinnacle of the Titan project. Fortunately they are prohibitively expensive to manufacture. If the Malta Group can find a cost effective way of manufacturing these monsters, their terror will be felt around the globe.
The SlingerThe Slinger [Arch-Villain]
Slinger is one of Malta's engineering geniuses, with excellent knowledge of advanced robotics and weapons. Some suspect he had a direct hand in the development of the infamous Titan robots.

Mission Complete: You got the Orestes Rifle!

There are a large number of Zeus Titans in this mission
Lord Recluse

The Orestes Rifle! Use it well, Strike Force Redback. It is a powerful weapon!

You say that you got hit by some sort of experimental weapon? We will need to fix that before you fight Statesman. Though I despise that foolish hero, I know he is powerful, and you will not survive against him while you are in this weakened state.

You are indeed a worthy ally of Arachnos!


Speak with Operative Grillo

Lord Recluse

The Orestes Rifle should prove most effective against Ms. Liberty, but the condition the Malta Temporal Disrupter left you with may jeopardize our eventual goal of defeating Statesman! I have spoken with Operative Grillo at Project DESTINY, and he has related some interesting information regarding your current state. Go speak with Operative Grillo, then follow his orders necessary to removing the temporal disruption!

Operative Grillo said his people discovered something rather interesting in his investigations into Project DESTINY.

Part 3: Speak with Operative Grillo
Delivery @ Grandville
Operative Grillo

Ah, you must be Strike Force Redback! Lord Recluse told me to expect you. You have a most interesting condition which I can explain. The Temporal Disrupter the Malta agents hit you with caused your team to be weakened considerably by causing you to be 'split in two' along the timestream. That is, part of you is here in the present, while part of you is in a possible future. The reason we know this is we recorded a temporal anomaly in one of the future timestreams and further investigation showed us your team in this future with a temporal 'trail' leading to the present! Fascinating, isn't it?

In any case, you're probably wanting to be rid of your condition. While it doesn't have an immediate effect upon you, the longer you go without fixing it, the more chance of it causing irreperable [sic] damage to you. Lord Recluse gave his command to do whatever is necessary to remove the temporal disruption. We have the coordinates queued up in the Destiny Portal to the future timestream where your other half is. Going to this future and returning to our timeline will allow you to 'sync up' with your future selves and then with the present, thus removing the temporal disruption. There is a catch however. In this future, the Freedom Phalanx are putting up a strong resistance to Lord Recluse's plans. As part of Project DESTINY, we need to remove this future possibility. Enter into the Destiny Portal and eliminate the Freedom Phalanx resistance from this future reality!

Part 4: Defeat Future freedom Phalanx
Instanced Outdoor [Recluse's Victory] @ Grandville

You feel yourself starting to syncronize with your future self. Now to win this future for Arachnos!

Sister PsycheSister Psyche [Hero]
Even in her childhood, it was obvious that Sister Psyche was blessed. The tremendous scope of her mental powers was far beyond that of any hero, past or present. When the Rikti War descended, Sister Psyche knew she had to make her gift count. She did, but at a price. She exhausted her powers so thoroughly that she fell into a coma. A young heroine named Aurora Borealis offered to play host to Sister Psyche's projected mental self. Of course, this situation could not last forever. Now back in her own body, Sister Psyche has dedicated herself to helping to shape the tremendous gifts of the young Aurora. It's a responsibility she takes seriously, as well as a consolation for the loss of her former protoge, Malaise. When the psychic link between the two women was first disrupted, Sister Psyche lost her mental control over Malaise's dual personalities. The evil Malaise reasserted himself, and quickly made his departure. His present whereabouts are as yet unknown.

As Swan, she aids his in his relentless war against the 5th Column, in the hopes that one day she will find her parents alive.
ValkyrieValkyrie [Hero]
Valerie Kellum was an archeologist who discovered what she first took for an ancient spear. A more careful examination led to the realization that the spear had a technological component. She travelled around Europe looking for ideas about its origin and ended up in a local Crey facility.

Defeat Statesman and Freedom Phalanx

Lord Recluse

The final confrontation with Statesman is at hand! I have sent word to my arch-enemy in Paragon City, setting the terms for the conflict. He is to clear Atlas Park so only true heroes and villains may clash! He will show up with some Longbow agents to cordon off the area so citizens would not get hurt. I also allowed the Freedom Phalanx to aid him - it will make his eventual defeat all the more satisfying! Go now and defeat the greatest of heroes, the mighty Statesman and his precious Freedom Phalanx!

This will be a great triumph! To have Statesman publicly defeated will be a glorious victory!
