What's going on around here?
It appears that the Star Portal has been used by an unknown species to invade this area.

Star Portal? What's that?
That Star Portal was left here by the Zurg when they invaded our planet briefly a couple years ago. It's been inactive since that time, but recently began discharging energy at around the same time that the Animated began appearing in the area.

You

So the Star Portal is responsible for what's going on?

That's probably a negative. Rather, we think that the portal was partially re-activated by whatever caused the Animated to start appearing.

'We'? What 'we'?

A group of concerned citizens, that's all.

You

Mm-hmmm...and does that group have a name?

No, it does not.

You

Of course not.

  • Can you tell me more about that 'unknown species' in the area?

Can you tell me more about that 'unknown species' in the area?
I can tell you what I'm guessing, but there are few facts available. The aliens seem to have come through the Star Portal by accident and they can't seem to use it to get back.

You
DialogArrowRight

Oh? How can you tell that?

We had an agen...errr...fellow concerned citizen here watching the portal when the ETs first came through. They seemed quite disorganized and flustered initially, only settling down to dig their burrow bunkers after they gave up on getting out through the Star Portal.

You

I've seen a few of them. They seem to be packing a lot of equipment.

That's true. And I know some people that would give a lot to get that kind of equipment to a lab for analysis.

Is that something you need help with?
Normally, no. But our...groups of citizens...is spread pretty thin right now. Would you be willing to test yourself against these ETs and bring me back some of their equipment?

  • Sure! I'd be glad to help!

All right then. I'm fairly certain that the rings you're wearing will still be effective against these ETs, even though they're not Animated. See if you can knock some of them out and then come back and tell me what sorts of things you find on them.

You
DialogArrowRight

You got it. Be back in a jif!

So...what did you find out?

You
DialogArrowRight

Well...not as much as you might hope. The little guys tend to blow themselves up when they're put out of commission, but I found scraps of circuit boards that seemed to grow out of flesh, funny-feeling plastic bits, and other stuff that's clearly 'not from around here'.

Well done! You might have the stuff to join our little...society of well-meaning citizens...if you keep that up.

You
DialogArrowRight

Cool. But this stuff is just junk. Is it really going to tell you anything?

Well, not me specifically. But our labs will be able to analyze these things down to the molecular level and that should tell us a thing or two.

You

Labs?

Uh, right. Okay, we're a *well-funded* group of concerned citizens. Keep bringing me info on these aliens and I'll let you in on what our scientists found out about these components you've shown me.

You
DialogArrowRight

That's downright generous of you!

Don't get all smarmy, junior. If we had more men available right now, we'd already have shipped you off somewhere as a security risk. But for now, we're appreciative of your assistance.

You

Ummmm...thanks?
