Information

Police Liaison

Detective Selnum left a career with the Navy after the war and came to Peregrine Island. Though he originally started off as a private investigator, he later joined the PPD.

Initial Contact

Okay. You're a hero, I get that. Now let me make sure you have what you need. You got the Police Band radio frequencies? Okay, now if you help us out some, we'll know we can count on you, and we'll be sure to call you if anything big is going to happen.

Now that you've gotten a Police Radio, you can start scanning Police chatter to hear about the crimes as they're committed in your current zone. You can then act on a report by selecting it from the Police Radio, listed under your Contacts.

Missions

Protect Founders' Falls bank

Briefing

We have reports of an attack by the Council against the Founders' Falls bank! The situation is dire, and we need a hero or a team of heroes to head to Founders Falls and stop that attack! The robbery is in progress, so you won't have more than 5 minutes to thwart the heist before they make an escape. There are rumors that Arachnos may have loaned the Council one of their elite villains to this mission, so be ready to call for back up.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions, however you can lose time if they destroy too much of the city.

Mission Acceptance

The Council and the villain aren't the only problem. Word has it that Crey Industries has decided to test their latest "Defensive Weaponry" by trying it out during the cover of the attack! The more you stop them, the less of a chance their weapons testing will bear fruit.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Objective(s)

Founders Falls. A bastion of true beauty, marred by the presence of the Crey Corporation lining the streets. The Council are standing at alert at certain locations, while causing a distraction by destroying property in others. You've been tipped off that Arachnos will lead the charge to the bank, so stay alert!.

Primary Enemies

Crey
Council
Arachnos

BUG?:During this mission, the group attacking the bank will be Arachnos troops, though the briefing describes them as Council. They even have Council names, so I'm suspecting the spawns are messed somehow. Besides, there are other minor bugs: the boss in my Arson mission was an Ascendant Archon with the name "Galaxy Archon", and NPCs in the streets will mention later the attacking group in Founders as "The Family".

Debriefing

Excellent work! You have prevented the villains from causing mayhem in Founders' Falls!

Protect Peregrine Island bank

Briefing

The Carnival of Shadows is at it again! This time, they're rampaging through Peregrine Island. Looting, arson, you name it, they're pulling it. Sources say that this is just a distraction from a main objective though, a bank heist, being led by one of Arachnos' elite troops on loan by order of Lord Recluse himself. Be prepared, you may need back-up on this mission. Arachnos troops have been spotted at the bank, so you should head over there right now. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions, however you can lose time if they destroy too much of the city.

Mission Acceptance

It looks like the Carnies had everything planned out except for one element: Malta Group Operatives have come out of nowhere to take the streets. I'm concerned that they're hunting any heroes who try to respond. Stop the Carnies and Malta as much as you can, and the streets will be safe once again.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Objective(s)

Your priorities are simple, but not easy: Stop the Carnival's rampages and prevent their destructive schemes, and clear the streets of the Malta. Even with this information, you still feel that someone else is involved.
