Ian the Shark is a City of Villains contact located in St. Martial at coordinates (?, ?, ?).

Introductions[]

Contact Introduced By[]

  • None, Ian the Shark is a broker and will assign missions after completing Rogue Isle Protector assignments.

New Contact(s)[]

I know a guy by the name of Hardcase. Have you heard the rumors of demons plaguing St. Martial? Well, Hardcase suppossedly hunts these monsters and is looking for freelancers to help him with his work. He can get you Magic and Naural Enhancements.

Hardcase is a fairly serious man, but considering his profession, it's understandable.


You should strike up a conversation with a fellow who goes by the name Hard Luck. He's a casino enforcer, and he knows all the ins and outs of St. Martial. Plus, he can get you Natural and Technology Enhancements.

Hard Luck is a cold-hearted man, but he gets his job done. Learn from him.


You should look up Vivacious Verandi. She's a relative of the Verandis, but lately she spends most of her time hanging out with the Carnival. She's interested in everything St. Martial has to offer, and she can afford to pay you well. Viv has access to Mutant and Magic Enhancements.

Viv is a frisky girl. Be wary of her.

Information[]

Broker

Ian is a professional gambler whose luck ran a little too good in Babylon. Most of the casinos banned the irishman, so he took up fixing instead.

Initial contact[]

Faith and begorrah, a fellow blackheart. Pleased to meet you. I'm Ian the Shark. It's a fair name. I'd wager, as I've won more than me fair share o' games in me life, and not one of them fairly.
That's why they banned me from the Giza, they did. 'Tis fair enough though. I've got a new gig helping scoundrels like you break into the local banks and casinos. Split the profits with me and I promise I'll never cheat you.
