1) Fix the scanner

Mission: Find the dead scanner

Selection Text: I'm sure you're aware of the great threat that Praetorian Earth poses to our dimension, [HERO]. Portal Corporation has been doing everything it can to combat that threat. Through the efforts of our hero liaisons, several of the Praetorians were incarcerated; however an extradimensional event at the Zig recently freed the lot of them. That fact makes me all the more nervous about the following development:

Recently we asked some heroes to plant data scanners on a pack of war wolves on Praetorian Earth. The scanners' primary purpose was to keep us appraised of the Praetorians' efforts to enter our dimension, but they have also been providing us with valuable information on troop movements, technological advances, and shifts of power within the Praetorian world itself. One of the scanners stopped transmitting just this morning. I need you to get to Praetorian Earth and fix that scanner.

Souvenir: Statesman's face plate

It began with a request from Portal Corporation. One of the data scanners they were using to monitor Praetorian Earth had gone dead. You investigated, and learned that the war wolf the scanner had been attached to had been slaughtered. The scanner had been deactivated in an effort to lure you to the Praetorian world.

Portal Corporation's problems had just begun. Shortly, all of their scanners went dead, and you were sent to investigate once more. You learned that Shadowhunter had destroyed all of the wolves that had been tagged with the scanners. You also learned that the scanners had been given to the Praetorian androids, Siege and Nightstar.

Portal Corporation deemed the Praetorian seizure of the scanners to be a serious security risk, so you were sent to Siege's storage facility to recover them. You learned that the scanners had been sent on, to a lab belonging to the Praetorians' twisted engineer, Neuron.

You were next sent to Neuron's lab, where you found most of the scanners. You also learned that a few scanners had been sent to a second facility, where they were being modified to serve some dark purpose. Thanks to Tina Macintyre's skill with dimensional mechanics, you were able to locate the second lab and retrieve the last of the scanners. While there, you learned a shocking fact: the scanners were being modified so that the Praetorians could scan Statesman. Paragon City's most beloved hero was in the Praetorians' clutches!

While at Neuron's lab, you made one other discovery: a warrior clan from Battle Maiden's home world was trying to contact Neuron. They promised to swear allegiance to him if he would help rid them of Battle Maiden's tyranny. You resolved to help the clan, and perhaps learn a bit more about the Praetorians' plans. You saved the clan's village and rescued Kawago, the clan elder. Unfortunately, you learned nothing about Statesman's imprisonment or the Praetorians' plans for him.

You resolved to continue the search, but an emergency in a Paragon City neighborhood distracted you. People were being attacked by their own shadows. You went to the neighborhood, and found that Black Swan's shadow minions were behind the mischief. You beat them back, and learned that they had mentioned a prisoner on Black Swan's Shadow World.

With a little help from Tina Macintyre, you tracked Black Swan to her home dimension and rescued her prisoner. Although you were disappointed to learn that the prisoner was a young man named Julio Jimenez, you were intrigued by his story. It seemed that he had been taken from his own dimension. Black Swan had kidnapped Julio for information about his world's ruler, but the young man was too terrified of his master to even speak.

Once again, you had hit a dead end in your search for Statesman. Fortunately, Portal Corporation hadn't. they had turned up a likely location: a Praetorian asylum run by the cruel Mother Mayhem and her vicious lackey, Malaise. You searched the asylum, but found no sign of Statesman.

Portal Corporation provided another lead: a mystical torture chamber under the control of Infernal and Diabolique. You battled the villains valiantly, but, once again, you turned up no leads.

Your investigation was put on hold once more when the Praetorians Marauder and Dominatrix invaded a Portal Corporation lab. You repelled the invaders and rescued the Portal technicians. One of them had cleverly scanned Dominatrix, after overhearing her mention a recent conversation with Statesman.

You now had the location of Statesman's prison, along with enough information to free him. You battled the evil Tyrant himself and destroyed his force field generators, allowing Statesman to make his escape.

Paragon City is a little brighter now, with Statesmen back among its people. There's no doubt that you. like Statesman, have earned a place among the city's brightest stars.
