I've been reduced to eating things like Instant Pot Noodles and SpagBol! It's horrendous!
Say, can you help me out? Anything's better than those greasy Pot Noodles!"

Farmer John cracks a heartwarming smile. "I know what they say: I have a blue thumb.
I grow the juiciest, most wholesome and bountiful space oats this side of the universe!"

Then he looks away from you and sighs.
"Well - normally that is true,
but this year the crops have been rough due to Zycostan Locusts and irregular sun spots.
But my reputation! That's what will truly suffer...unless I come up with some space oats to show off.
Maybe you can help me? Get me some 'replacement oats' and save my good name: The trusted name of Farmer John!"

Agent: Creaky the Robot

Mission: Exploring Fly Incubator





Exploring Fly Incubator


As you wander throught the halls of Janitor's Outpost,
you are stopped by the rusty iron figure of Creaky the Robot.

He pulls you aside and says,
"I've heard reports of strange going-ons over in Fly Incubator from some 'experts.'
Tales of new Flyswatters - those crazy, vicious little creatures - hatching fresh broods!
Hell's bells,
I remember when this region of space was all virgin and nobody had even heard of a Flyswatter before!"

Creaky rattles a fist before continuing.

"Since you can't trust everything those nincompoops tell you, I want another opinion. You, I trust.
Don't ask me why! Now, go to Fly Incubator and scout it out, then come back to me.
I'll pay you for you first time!"

Exploring Fly Incubator

You inform Creaky the Robot of what you have seen.

"Ah, 'tis as I had feared!" Creaky squeaks anxiously.
"They're growing in numbers by the day...and in our own backyard to boot!"

Then he starts to rant to no one in particular.

"D'you know how annoying it is to clean up this station with those damned vermin flinging goddanged
pellets everywhere? They're EVERY-where, I say!"
he exclaims as he wheels away, steam popping out of his wired head.


Stop Them as Embryos

Location: Janitor's Outpost, The Nexus

Agent: Creaky the Robot

Mission: Stop Them as Embryos


Stop Them as Embryos


Creaky the Robot suddenly springs to life when you approach him.
"Stop them! Before it's too late!" he cries.
You vaguely wonder what he's talking about before he yells, "The Flyswatters!
They're everywhere! ERRY-where!"

"Something needs to be done, Demon Hunter!" Creaky the Robot continues. "And I know just the thing!
The trick, Demon Hunter, is to take care of 'em early.
If more people did that, we wouldn't have the problem we have today!
Stupid young folk lazing around in front of the viewscreens all day,
listening to crap and not out exterminating these flies - leavin' all the work to us old folk! No respect!"

Creaky the Robot's eyes suddenly dim and he goes silent.
You step towards him, wondering if he somehow fell asleep, when he jumps up and yells:
"Stop them! Before it's too late! The Flyswatters! They're everywhere! ERRY-where!"

"Something needs to be done, Demon Hunter!" Creaky the Robot croaks again. "And I know just the thing!"

You hear him continue his rant as you leave and can't tell if he's stuck in a loop...or just really old.

Stop Them as Embryos


"Not too bad for a young whippersnapper!" the robot cackles, having heard of your exploits.

"Here you go! Five thousand credits!
Back in my day, five thousand credits could last you a week -
even longer if you didn't have to take your girl out to town on a Friday night!
Ahh, those were the days...Demon Hunter, don't you go and sped them all in one place!"


Torch the Larvae

Location: Janitor's Outpost, The Nexus

Agent: Creaky the Robot

Mission: Torch the Larvae


Torch the Larvae


Creaky the Robot greets you once again, his eyes glowing faintly as he takes a swig from a beer canister. 

"Yes, yes, Demon Hunter, we've made a dent in the Flyswatter population -
I barely had any pellets to clean off the station this morning!
But some of the Embryos have survived to become Larvae!
Bah!" Creaky the Robot clanks around angrily in a circle, swinging the can about.
"Stupid goddanged Larvae...bigger pellets and they smell horrible,
stupid sons of biscuits eating away all my power cords...!"

You wait for him to finish his tantrum.

"The sooner you stop 'em, Demon Hunter, the better!
The Larvae are a little further in - past the Fly Incubator, in Fly Times.
Do an old 'bot a favor and clean 'em out for me, would you?"

Torch the Larvae


Creaky the Robot rumbles to life as you exit your ship.
His various mechanical parts squeak noisily - partly from old age, partly from a hangover - as he approaches you.

"Very good, very good, Demon Hunter!
Finally a young'un that know how to treat us old folk! Showin' us a little respect!
You earned this, Demon Hunter, so enjoy it - now get outta my sight, I've got a killer headache!"


There Must Be a Maggot!

Location: Janitor's Outpost, The Nexus

Agent: Creaky the Robot

Mission: There Must Be a Maggot!


There Must Be a Maggot!


"There must be a Maggot somewhere behind all of this!" raves Creaky the Robot, his eyes sparking.
"These Embryos can't just start hatching by themselves! Demon Hunter? Demon Hunter!"

Creaky whirls his head around until his eyes settle on you.

"Ah, Demon Hunter!
Those damned lazy young folk must've let a Larva slip - now the blasted thing's grown into a Maggot!"
he growls, stomping around.
"And that Maggot is spewing out more than pellets - it's popping out eggs to hatch more Embryos!
Demon Hunter, you need to stop it! Get yourself back over to Fly Times and deal with that slimy little critter!"

Agent: Creaky the Robot

Mission: There Must Be a Maggot!


There Must Be a Maggot!


Creaky the Robot rumbles to life,
his mounted eyes glittering brightly when you tell him of your battle with the Maggot.
"Good-bye and good riddance, I say!
Damned little critter was stirring up all sorts of trouble - ah, but no more, since you've swatted it down!
I was getting sick and tired of cleaning up those pellets! Pellets, pellets, pellets!
Nothing but pellets soiling up my station all day!
And then those pesky flies keep digging wormhole right in my backyard! Closing a wormhole is expensive!
I can't afford to do it all the time! But now that they're gone, I can get some peace and quiet!
Do you have any idea how hard it is to sleep with them buzzing around all night long?"

As you leave, you can still hear Creaky the Robot ranting about the flies - but he definitely seems happier.


Meeting Slimebottle

Location: Janitor's Outpost, The Nexus

Agent: Creaky the Robot

Mission: Meeting Slimebottle


Meeting Slimebottle


Creaky the Robot's eyes flash dimly when you meet him again.

"Demon Hunter,
I was speaking to professor Slimebottle and he states that the death of the Maggot is not going to stop the
Flyswatter scourge! It seems there are other Maggots coming from the place even further out than Fly Times!
I swear of O see one more fly pellet around here I'm going to march right down to Earthforce Headquarters
and demand to speak to the officer in charge! I was in the war and this is how they treat a veteran? With fly pellets?"

You quietly ignore Creaky as he continues to rant, having become rather used to his stomping around in the docking bay.

"Demon Hunter, I want you to go and talk to Lucien Slimebottle. He's staying here on my station for a bit.
These Flyswatters need to be stopped!"

Summary
Talk to Lucien Slimebottle.


Location: Janitor's Outpost, The Nexus

Agent: Lucien Slimebottle

Mission: Meeting Slimebottle


Meeting Slimebottle


"What is it? I am doing important things here," snaps Lucien Slimebottle.
"Oh - Creaky the Robot sent you? That daft android! I can hardaly sleep with his insane clanking!"

He sighs.
"Well, I was in need of an assistant - and if we stop the Flyswatters, maybe that damned robot will quiet down!"


Maggot Master

Lucien Slimebottle

Location: Janitor's Outpost, The Nexus

Agent: Lucien Slimebottle

Mission: Maggot Master





Maggot Master


You have heard of Lucien Slimebottle's research into Flyswatter technology,
but now you are within his actual 'exalted' presence.

"We meet again, Demon Hunter," he says.
"I'm wondering if you are familiar with my work? A little? Good, good; I will not bore you then.
Though I am famous throughout the universe, I connot be content with what I have achieved.
Therein lies the conundrum: Further research requires rarer materials to study,
and it's to that end that I turn to you, my new assistant!"

"You see," he continues, "the Flyswatters are a rather primitive race of humanoids thought
to have been evolved from dipterous creature.
They are highly aggressive toward other species primarily due to a collective egomania, and as such,
are highly resistant toward any for of social or culture change.
Because of this, their technology is incredibly simple and lack the advanced components found in nearly
all modern ships. However..."

He pauses for a moment, his eyes gleaming zealously.
"The Flyswatters also retain some organic components,
which allow them to do wondrous things that are nigh on impossible to recreate with human technology!"

"Now, there's a rare form of the Flyswatter Maggot - the Master Maggot - which inhabits Dynamic Move.
I theorize its anatomy contains a Maggot Cloacae!
This enables it to grow and even evolve new Flyswatters with a mere food cost
- much less than normal Flyswatter sustenance! Such an organ could be invaluable in my hands,
bringing me fame and fortune!"

Lucien Slimebottle catches himself and changes gears quickly.
"Oh - and it could thwart the Flyswatter menace! So, perhaps you can recover it for me.
The last young pilot I sent on this task returned in an escape pod,
but I'm very confident you will fare better...right?"

Lucien Slimebottle stops you as you are about to leave.
"That said, you must beware: The path to the Master of Maggots is long and treacherous,
well guarded by his minions. Be careful or I - ehkm, we - won't get that Cloacae!"

* Credits given: 100,000
* Experience given: 500 under level 11
* Reward: Slimebottle's Augmenter

Maggot Master


"Exacly what I needed, Demon Hunter! Now, greater fame and glory shall be mine...MINE!"
Lucien Slimebottle again catches himself and clears his throat.
"Ah, I mean, we're going to stop this Flyswatter menance! Once and for all!"


Flylet Test

Location: Janitor's Outpost, The Nexus

Agent: Lucien Slimebottle

Mission: Flylet Test


Flylet Test


"Great science never stops!" Lucien Slimebottle confidently informs you.
"Especially not when I'm the one doing it!"

"However, behind every great scientist - like myself - lies a team of little people - like you.
Yes, I have another task for you!"

"This infestation doesn't stop with Maggots - I noticed we have Flylets here too.
This means we might have a Flylet Master somewhere nearby.
We need to safely recover its innards for the greater good!
However, I'm not sure you're quite up to it - it really is much harder than your previous work as my assistant.
So for YOUR safety, I need you to prove yourself to me."

Lucien Slimebottle looks at you pityingly.
"Come back after destroying four Flylets and then we'll see what we can do."

* Credits given: 250,000

Agent: Lucien Slimebottle

Mission: Flylet Master


Flylet Master


Lucien Slimebottle is happy to see you - at least, he looks that way.

"A great moment in science is drawing near!" he announces with impressive grandeur.
"We make a great team: I, on the verge of a great discovery, and you, well,
you...ready to carry out my basic tasks! Now, I need a Flylet Archbreeder,
a rare device found only, at least to my extensive knowledge, on the Flylet Master."

"Remember where you fought the Flylets?
Well, our friend - the Flylet Master - is just a little bit farther.
Be careful and get me that Archbreeder in one piece!"
