1) Stop the Rikti experiment and the battle on the street

Mission: Stop Rikti street battle

Selection Text: There is a major disturbance occurring, [HERO]. A large number of Rikti troops have taken control of an area of several city blocks, and are preparing what appears to be a major dimensional experiment or mass transfer. Civil authorities were able to evacuate most civilians, but there are still several people trapped in the area. This situation has been further complicated by verified reports of Rikti fighting other Rikti. An emergency of this nature supercedes the necessities of the proper chain of command; I am thus taking initiative and requesting your assistance to stop the Rikti battle on the streets and/or rescue the civilians and/or disrupt the Rikti's experiment.
There is little time before this situation will get out of hand. I would estimate that you will have approximately 2 hours to stabilize the situation.

Souvenir: C'Kelkah's ceremonial blade

This ceremonial Rikti blade was given to you by the Rikti Traditionalist leader C'Kelkah as a sign of her thanks. To you it is a memento, reminding you of the strange adventure so bizarre you call it by the Rikti name: 

Division: Line

It all began when a strange Rikti dimensional experiment on the streets of the city turned into a pitched battle among the Rikti themselves! You went in to shut down the experiment and free civilians trapped between the warring sides. Though the situation was contained in the end, you were left wondering why Rikti would ever fight each other?

You next journeyed to a war-ravaged abandoned Earth to stop another Rikti interdimensional experiment. You found Rikti fighting Rikti again, and discovered that one side had already damaged the other's portal equipment.

You received word that a member of the Lost, now known by the Rikti name Nen'Kulf. You arrived in time to save Nen'Kulf from other Rikti who had caught him, and he explained to you that the Rikti on Earth were starting to factionalize. The battles you'd seen were between the Traditionalist faction, who sought to rebuild the Rikti civilization of their home world on Earth; and the Restructurist faction, who want to create a new Rikti society to handle the current situation. Nen'Kulf also gave you the location of a Traditionalist leader.

Once Nen'Kulf's information was confirmed you moved in and captured C'Kelkah, a Rikti dimensional travel scientist and one of the leaders of the Rikti Traditionalists. Curiously, you also found devices meant to disrupt interdimensional travel being prepared at the base.

Disturbing trends revealed in C'Kelkah's initial interrogation were reinforced when you discovered that Nen'Kulf had been granted a full Rikti conversion following C'Kelkah's capture. You went to capture the transformed Nen'Kulf during his first action as a full Rikti of the Lineage of War.

All plans were thrown into disarray when the Nemesis Army struck, kidnapping C'Kelkah! Nen'Kulf was killed in the attack as well. You went to recapture her from Nemesis, and found that the Rikti were already trying to do the same. Unfortunately, Nemesis had already moved C'Kelkah to another location.

With few leads on C'Kelkah's location, you hit the next best thing: the staging point for a Traditionalist Rikti operation to rescue C'Kelkah. Using information you found there, you were able to find C'Kelkah's current location and rescue her from the Nemesis Army. C'Kelkah was very thankful, and though communication was difficult, tried to thank you and explain the differences between the Rikti factions from her point of view. She explained that while the Traditionalists wanted to recreate the stable society of their home, the Restructurists were led by power hungry leaders of the Lineage of War, who wished to build a society they could rule.

To show that she was willing to work in good faith, C'Kelkah provided the location of a facility the Restructurist Rikti used to convert Lost into new troops. You shut the place down and recovered several testimonial journals from Lost converts, including one written by Nen'Kulf.

Decryptions of Nemesis Army documents you found when recapturing C'Kelkah showed that Nemesis had planned on capturing a Restructurist leader as well. With information from C'Kelkah, you were able to update the plan and captured the Restructurist General Lu'Bew, as well as plans for future Rikti operations. More important, however, was the discovery of a Rikti who used magical powers!

When questioned about the mystic Rikti, C'Kelkah replied that some Lost converts had displayed an aptitude for arcane powers. The Traditionalists had not pursued this, but there were rumors that radical Restructurists had. There were even rumors that they'd captured a Circle of Thorns sorcerer and were forcing him to teach them magic. You investigated, and found out that the rumors were true. You captured a Circle mage named Otrant who told you that the Rikti were also interested in magical barriers.

You next intercepted a Restructurist Rikti interdimensional expedition, and learned from the readings of the Rikti devices that the barrier sealing off the Rikti home world was magical in nature. Combined with the orders you found and the radical Restructurist's new magical power, it became evident that the Rikti sought to breach the mystic barrier to their home world!

The final stage was set when the radical Restructurists overran a section of Oranbega rich in stored magical energy. You rushed to the scene and fought through both Circle of Thorns defenders and Rikti attackers until you were able to stop the Restructurists plans.

With the Radical Restructurists' defeat came a the first hope of peace since the beginning of the Rikti War. C'Kelkah offered to begin cease-fire talks between the peoples of Earth and the Rikti Traditionalist faction. It's not a full peace, and it may be far off, but it is a chance.

When asked why she had been willing to help fight the Restructurists, C'Kelkah's reasoning was simple. She worried that if the Restructurists could restore contact with the Rikti home Earth, they would likely be given free reign to continue on Earth until they achieved victory. She feared that with that taste of victory, they would not allow their power to be taken away and be merged back under the command of the Lineage of War. That they might not stop with one Earth alone.
