Contact Introduced by[]

New Contact(s)[]

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



Isabel runs a high-dollar escort service in Babylon. Her girls find out a million secrets, and Isabel sells each one for twice that. She's wired into just about everyone and everything going on in St. Martial. Just don't cross her. Those that do have often been surprised by her sultry agents.

Initial contact[]


Rob Brickstown bank[]


Ready to cause some mayhem in Paragon City? Go to Brickstown and hit one of the banks there. Once you hit Brickstown you'll have 15 minutes to rob the bank and escape.

Be careful! The Vindicators and Numina have been seen in the area, if you bring more than a few villains with you they might take notice!

This is a Mayhem Mission. You can earn extra time by destroying property and creating diversions away from the bank itself.

Each type of item rewards a single time bonus after you destroy a certain ammount of that item. For each person on your team, you will need to destroy more of that particular item to get the time bonus.

Three random side missions can be found on this map. Keys (found by defeating certain enemies) are needed to unlock these side missions. Each completed side mission also rewards a time bonus.

Every character that is at least level 35 receives a special temporary power the first time they successfully complete this mission.

Mission Acceptance

Expect some resistance from Longbow. They've been monitoring the activities of villains in the Rogue Isles for quite some time.

Mission Objective(s)

You are met in Independence Port by an Arachnos operative and then smuggled into Brickstown in the back of a truck. Rob the bank and cause some destruction!

  • Rob Brickstown bank - 15:00
    • Steal money from vault
    • Defeat hero to escape!

You robbed the bank in Brickstown!

Pull a heist[]


You know the Lucky Six. They don't pull in the crowds like the Giza does, but they do a steady business for the small time rollers. All those small time bets add up to big time cash. Shall we cash in?
