[3] THE BASICS                                                          [0300]

==============================================================================

.------------------.
| Player Alignment |
'------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  A common staple in western RPGs is the ability to decide your character's
  alignment/personality by choosing "good" or "bad" responses in conversation.
  Most of the available responses during talks are blatantly nice/mean, so it
  isn't so much of a guessing game; you can easily choose whether to lead Roy
  down a good or a bad path.
  
  In addition to selecting good or bad responses during conversations, you are
  also given the option of killing or sparing human enemies after defeating
  them in battle (needless to say, killing fallen foes is the "bad" thing to
  do).
  
  Both sides has their pros and cons. Being bad generally creates an easier
  playing experience (since killing enemies nets you more currency) and you
  have the option to intimidate NPCs during some side missions to get what
  you want without getting your hands dirty. However, characters lose respect
  for you if you are evil, and some side missions are unavailable if your
  moral scale dips too low (thus possibility eliminating the chance for the 
  "Completionist" Achievement).
  
  Sparing enemies prevents the chance of obtaining extra Serum (the game's
  currency), which is normally very scarce, thus creating a more difficult
  journey for the player. However, people (including merchants) are nicer to
  you if you take the path of righteousness.


.----------------------------.
| Skills and Character Feats |
'----------------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________
  
  You gain two skill points and one character feat point every time you level
  up, each pertaining to skill trees and character feats, respectively. The 
  skills menu features three skill trees: Renegade, Combat, and Technomancy. 
  
  Renegade focuses on stealth and defensive strategies, Combat hones in on
  your offensive powers, and Technomancy upgrades your magic spells (available
  at the start of Chapter 2).
  
  You can use character feat points to obtain character feats, which include 
  perks focused on things other than combat. You also have to meet certain 
  requirements to even make the feats available to purchase, such as maxing
  out your alignment to good/bad or by recycling a certain amount of items.


.----------.
| Crafting |
'----------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Precious commodities are hard to come by on Mars, forcing its denizens to
  scavenge for scraps and parts. The game's currency is called Serum, and that
  is even rarer to find. You won't run into many shops or merchants in the
  game, so you'll have to rely on the scraps and random components you find in
  order to help craft items and upgrade equipment.
  
  When equipping a weapon or armor, look to see if there are any circular
  slots next to 'em in your inventory. If there are, you can use components to
  upgrade them and increase their stats. That's why rummaging through waste
  piles and crates is key to surviving; because those seemingly useless pieces
  of junk can be used to upgrade your gear and can be sold to merchants.
  
  If you have an abundance of gear, you can either sell them for Serum or
  recycle them for a chance at getting back some components. Some character
  feats increase your crafting abilities, so you can look into them if this
  element interests you. 


.---------------------.
| Excelling at Combat |
'---------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Combat is not super detailed in Mars: War Logs, and the game isn't terribly
  tough unless set on the hardest difficulty settings. When you encounter an
  enemy, you brandish your weapon and the fight begins. X is your normal
  physical attack while Y is a guard break that can break an enemy's block.
  Use A to perform an evasive roll and B to block. If you press B at the exact
  moment a foe tries to strike you, you can counterattack.
  
  Mix up the use of X and Y to keep your target on their toes and help land
  more hits. Rolling and blocking are both incredibly important, since there
  are often times where you and your companion will be facing off against
  multiple targets.
  
  Speaking of, at most points throughout the game you will be with a faithful
  companion. This person will aid you in fights and has their own separate
  health bar. If they die, they will be rendered useless through the remainder
  of the fight but is revived at the conclusion of the duel. Using the tactics
  menu (LB), you can select different ally commands, such as attacking the
  same target as Roy or holding a defensive stance. There are multiple
  companions found throughout the game.
  
  In addition to the basic button commands, you also have different tactics
  that can be viewed by pressing the Left Bumper. When used in battle, time
  slows down significantly and you can change skills, equip new items, and so
  forth. You can set three different tactics to the Right Trigger, Left
  Trigger, and Right Bumper. The tactics range from crafted items (explosive
  traps, nail gun), to Technomancer spells (Electric Arc, Energy Shield).

  Lastly, you can use stealth to your advantage in battle. By upgrading
  certain parts of the Renegade skill tree, you can sneak up on opponents and
  ambush them to deal great amounts of damage. Click the Left Analog Stick to
  enter stealth mode and carefully sneak up behind an enemy before attacking.
  If brute force isn't your cup of tea, try this more elusive approach.

  __________________________________________________________________________

  POW Camp
  --------
  The game starts off through the eyes of a young man nicknamed "Innocence",
  as he is brought to a slave camp. After a scene, you are given control of
  the main character, Roy. Talk to Innocence and choose one of the responses
  given. Remember, you can influence your character's personality by choosing
  either good or bad responses throughout the game, which ultimately alters
  how other people in the game act towards you.
  
  I prefer selecting all the "good" choices, because while your adventure is
  typically easier as a "bad" character, you can access more of the game (such
  as side missions) when people respect you rather than fear you.
  
  Snoop around in the sand pit and scavenge for loot in the glowing [WASTE
  PILES] on the ground. Walk down the hallway to find a mechanic mumbling to
  himself. Talk to him and offer to help to begin the side mission "Handyman's
  Assistant" (side mission walkthroughs are found in Section 5).
  
  Exit the sand pit to run into Fatso and his gang again. This time, there is
  no escape. Start off by clicking the Right Analog Stick to lock onto a
  target. Use X to attack and Y to guard break, B to block, and A to roll.
  Enemies will also block your attacks, which is why you should utilize guard
  breaks and try to alternate between X and Y to fight.
  
  You can also use the Sand Throw skill, which can be assigned to RT, LT, or
  RB; use this to temporarily blind your foes. The first two guys are easy to
  take down, but the third blocks a lot. Use guard break and block his attacks
  with B. If you time your button press right, you can perform counterattacks.
  
  Eventually Fatso joins in on the fun, and Innocence helps even the playing
  field. Take out his lackey first and then gang up on the tubby prisoner,
  using Sand Throw to blind him.
  
  Roy levels up after the brawl. Now at Level 2, you are given two skill
  points that can be used on your skill trees. Press Back (or Left on the
  D-Pad) to access the skills menu. There are three total skill trees
  (although Technomancy is currently unavailable); Combat increases your
  fighting skills and is more of an offensive tree, and Renegade aids you in 
  stealth and long-range fighting, and is more of a defensive tree.

  Regardless of what path you want to take, you should begin by adding your
  two points to the "First Aid" skill in the Renegade tree.
  
  You also receive a character feat point, which allows you to unlock
  character feats. This is a more all-around group of perks focusing on things 
  outside of combat, such as increasing experience gained and chances of 
  obtaining loot from defeated enemies.
  
  Search the [WASTE PILE] in the corner and proceed east until a prisoner
  stops you and gives Roy a cracked tube in thanks for stopping Fatso. Bring
  up your inventory and equip it. You can upgrade the cracked tube using
  various components, but hold off on selecting an upgrade until you have
  better items. You can find components by scavenging through waste piles and
  crates. They are all over the place in the game and glow pretty brightly,
  so I will not be pointing out each individual one in this walkthrough.
  
  The mess hall is to the north, but go through the southern doorway for a
  short detour. A prisoner informs Roy that a guard named Bob is looking for
  him. You can find Bob on the other side of the eastern door, and this will
  trigger a cutscene and a couple sidequests.

  Go up the stairs and climb over the wall towards the Crater Zone. Unsheathe
  your weapon as you loop 'round the corner near the four prisoners guarding
  the [BLUE CRATE]. One of the enemies is wearing sunglasses that prevents
  him from being blinded by sand. They're tough customers, but Innocence
  should help relieve the pressure a bit. The crate contains 10 Serum.
  
  Make your way to the mess hall and look for a quiet table: one is found
  directly opposite the entrance. Take a seat and watch the cutscene, which
  unlocks the main story mission "The Great Escape".
  
  We still aren't done with this quest. Look on your map for the entrance to
  the Crater Zone.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  Head forward and into the small recruitment office to assign Roy and
  Innocence to the proper jobs. As you walk south towards the Drilling Well,
  the duo splits up. Search the area for items before continuing south towards
  the entrance. When you get a chance, talk to Joe behind the desk to receive
  a nail gun out on loan; this also unlocks another story mission.


  Camp: Drilling Well
  -------------------
  You can continue this mission and "Weapons for the Battle" simultaneously
  since both sections take place in the Drilling Well. You'll meet up with
  your two co-workers, Sobriety and Courtesy, at the mouth of the tunnel.
  Enter the cavern and sneak towards the group of mole eggs. Quietly bash
  the first one to alert moles to your location.
  
  Moles are tough enemies and this part of the mission can be challenging.
  These monsters are immune to blinding (so Sand Throw is useless), they
  block often, and have a lunging jump attack. The nail gun is effective
  against enemies from a long distance, but make sure not to waste too much
  of its ammo.
  
  Defeat all the moles with the help of Sobriety and Courtesy, then smash the
  remaining egg piles. Drop down the ledge and continue to an intersection.
  Go east and climb up the ledge, then activate stealth mode and slip closer
  to the unsuspecting moles. You should be able to get a jump on the two
  patrolling moles before wiping out the rest. Search their bodies and follow
  the path to a dead end; check the body for a Health Injection Pack and the
  [BLUE CRATE] for 5 Serum and some alloy.
  
  Backtrack to the fork and head north this time, searching the corpse for a
  couple handmade grenades. At the second branch, you run into a warrior mole.
  He's a lot tougher than the little guys, but it's three on one. Grab all the
  surrounding loot and wait for your health to regenerate (yep, your health
  automatically regenerates after a few seconds) before going northeast.
  
  There are a lot of moles here, so get the upper hand by using a stealth
  attack on the warrior mole. Tinker around with your companions and order
  them around via the tactics menu. Also make sure to use your nail gun in
  this fight, as it'll potentially be a life saver.
  
  Back at the intersection, go the other way towards the northwest end. Take
  on the fourth group of moles (those handmade grenades are real effective)
  to complete your job. Watch the scene. Wait for your health to fully top
  off, then descend into darkness.

  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  After completing "The Mole Queen", your duty in the Drilling Well will be
  finished. Return the nail gun to Joe; by lying to him about the whereabouts
  of the remaining guns, he mentions that a patrol will be sent down to the
  well in order to find them. Return to the POW Camp.
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  Meet up with Innocence at the mess hall again and ask for a recap. In order
  to plan your escape, you must retrieve the weapons, collect some water for
  the road, and create a mutant rebellion. End the conversation to wrap up
  the mission.

'------------------------'                                          '--------'

  Rewards: 5500 XP, 10 Nail Gun ammo

  1. Find a way to divert weapons
  2. Pick up the 3 weapons from the previous squad
  3. Hide the weapons found in the drilling well tunnels
  4. Gain access to the drilling well
  5. Get into the drilling well tunnels to recover the weapons
  6. Recover the hidden weapons
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  After stopping by at the recruitment office and Innocence and Roy goes their
  separate ways, talk to the guy behind the counter near the Drilling Well
  entrance. Joe lends you a nail gun and also asks if you can retrieve three
  weapons from unsuccessful mole exterminators down in the tunnels.
  
  1. The first gun is just beyond the first batch of mole eggs, after jumping
     down from the ledge.

  2. From the first dead body, walk over to the intersection and continue
     east. Slay the moles up ahead to find another gun strapped to a corpse.
     
  3. The third and final weapon is at the second intersection, and can be
     obtained after killing the warrior mole.

  Now all you have to do is hide the three guns down in the tunnels so you
  can reclaim them when the time is right. At the second intersection, make
  your way to the northwest branch to find a small crate lying against a wall.
  Place the weapons inside the container for later.
  
  After wrapping up "The Mole Queen", give the nail gun to Joe. Roy tells him
  that he couldn't find the missing guns, and the guard proclaims that he'll
  have to send down a patrol squad to get them. The Drilling Well will be off
  access for the time being.
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  Stop by at Bill's guard post and ask him to get back inside the Drilling
  Well; he obliges. If you went ahead with the bad sidequest and got Bob sick/
  killed, then talk to Jack in the Crater Zone for entry. Either way, you must
  speak with Jack in order for him to let you in.


  Camp: Drilling Well
  -------------------
  As Joe mentioned earlier, a patrol team has been sent down in the tunnels in
  search for the weapons. Defeat the Abundance army sergeant and two soldiers.
  Roy steals a Serum extraction syringe from the sergeant.
  
  Extracting Serum from downed human enemies offers another way to 
  differentiate between good and evil. After defeating a human enemy in
  battle, you can now press Y to kill them and extract 5 Serum. It's a great
  way to earn Serum (which is normally fairly scarce in the game), but doing
  so quickly leads you down a bad path. If you want a good reputation, I
  advise you from finishing off even a single enemy throughout the game.
  
  Make your way to the weapons stash and take them, including the nail gun
  which is now added to your tactics menu.

  Rewards: -

  1. Destroy the mole eggs
  2. Draw the queen to the bottom of the tunnel
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Camp: Drilling Well
  -------------------
  During "First Steps in Prison", this mission unlocks after exterminating the
  four mole nests down in the tunnels. Mary gets knocked unconscious by the
  mole queen and you must face the beast on your own. She is too tough to
  bring down, so you'll have to find an alternative way of defeating her.
  
  You must destroy the six mole eggs surrounding the chamber. The mole queen
  has the same attacks as the other moles you have been battling, and can also
  summon more moles to do her bidding. Use your lock-on targeting ability to
  focus on the eggs and try your best to ignore the big boss. 

  After smashing all six, Mary wakes up and Roy orders her to use some
  Technomancer magic. Lure the mole queen to the bottom of the tunnel (the
  north end on your map) and Mary will seal the queen behind a rock wall.
  Crisis averted!

  Rewards: 3000 EXP, Mole Bone

  1. Ask about the rebel mutant at the recruitment office
  2. Find the rebel Dust among the other mutants
  3. Find the tools the mutants need
  4. Take the tools to Scum, the leader of the mutants
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  Stop in the recruitment office and speak with Saul, specifically asking him
  about the rebel mutant. Instead of finding and turning the criminal in, it's
  probably best to use him to our advantage. Head to the northwest sector of
  the Crater Zone, where all the mutants live.
  
  This is a bit of a hostile environment, so try not to be a huge jerk when
  talking to the Dust mutants. Talk to the one named Scum and interrogate him
  about the rebel. Unfortunately, things devolve into a fight, so beat him
  down to half health to get him to confess - turns out he himself is the 
  rebel.

  Scum offers his assistance, so long as you retrieve two tool boxes from
  the surrounding areas. First off, look around for [WASTE PILES] and make
  sure to climb the hill to find a [BLUE CRATE] containing 10 Serum and
  chemical components.

  Return to the kennel area where the Dog Master resides. Search the workshop
  on the northern wall to collect one of the two toolboxes. Now make your way
  back to the POW Camp.
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  Enter the mess and look for another workshop in the southeast corner of the
  room. Now that you have both sets of tools, return to Scum.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  With the tools in hand, offer them over to Scum and he will hold up his end
  of the bargain. Now you have the Dust on your side when your eventual escape
  plan comes to fruition.
  
  The mole bone is given to you once you complete this mission; it's a good
  weapon and a definite upgrade over the cracked tube, so equip it when you
  get a chance.

  Rewards: 4000 EXP

  1. Find a prisoner with access to the cistern
  2. Talk to Jey
  3. Try and get a key to the mushroom field from a guard
  4. Stock up on water from the cistern
  5. Leave the mushroom field
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  The water supply is stowed away in the Cistern, which happens to be
  unavailable to prisoners. Talk to Saul in the recruitment office and he'll
  spill that Jey handles who can and cannot access the Cistern. Leave the
  office and return to the POW Camp - Jey can be found at the mess hall.
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  Enter the mess and look for Jey, who wanders around the middle of the room.
  He divulges some unpleasant news, leading you on a scavenger hunt among
  other detours. Exit the cafeteria and meet up with Bob at his guard post;
  your acquaintance gladly forks over a key. When Innocence asks you, agree to
  let him join you. Now make your way to the door leading to the Cistern
  (west of the mess hall).
  
  
  Camp: Cistern Area
  ------------------
  Snoop around for some goodies before walking on the circular platform to the
  north. Sneak around and knock out as many prisoners as possible before
  assaulting the others. Clear the place out, loot everything (including a
  [BLUE CRATE] on the west side containing a broken lighting), and then head
  on down into the tunnels.
  
  Some dogs dwell in the tunnels, so watch out when walking 'round corners or
  else they may surprise you. Head south to run into about four prisoners; it
  can be tough, but there are [2 PURPLE CRATES] behind them containing a
  broken lighting and chemical components among other common components. Now
  follow the northern path to the Mushroom Field.
  
  Search the dead dude in front of you for 12 Serum and a reinforced prison
  uniform; make sure to put it on right away. Up ahead is a circular room with
  patrolling moles. Execute an ambush and eliminate the remaining foes. In
  the following room you run into quite a few moles: the first batch isn't
  terribly big, but more emerge from the ground after they bite the dust. Loot
  the corpse for a handmade grenade and go through the caverns.
  
  You run into two warrior moles and a dog (they are usually duking it out if
  you manage to sneak up on them), so now's a good time to use that handmade
  grenade you just found. Climb the ramp and open the door - one final dog
  stands between you and the water supply. Make sure to look around for
  [WASTE PILES] and a [BLUE CRATE] before leaving with the water. Just before
  the Mushroom Field exit is a [PURPLE CRATE] containing an explosive trap.
  These are nifty proximity mines that can be used in battle.
  
  Well that's that. You've got your water and now you can go back to camp.

  2. Go see Jey to start the escape
  3. Remove the security around the train
  4. Escape in the train
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  POW Camp
  --------
  You finish the first mission requirement by completing "First Steps in
  Prison", "The Mole Queen", "Weapons for the Battle", "A Diversion", and
  "Water for the Trip".
  
  Once you have wrapped up all other main quests, now you can complete all
  additional sidequests. This includes: "Handyman's Assistant", "The Blues",
  "Escape Together", "Mean Dogs", "An Explosive Plan", "The Lucky Charm", and
  "Another Face".

  Find Jey in the mess and tell him to spread word of the Dust mutiny. This
  gets the ball rolling in your favor.
  
  
  Camp: Cistern Area
  ------------------
  It's a battle between the mutants and the Abundance guards, so jump in and
  help your brothers out. The Abundance guards are nasty, and some of them
  have shock batons that can deal electrical damage. There are also anti-riot
  soldiers equipped with riot shields; you must roll and attack their backs.
  Loot their bodies (they usually have good stuff) and enter the Power Plant.
  
  
  Camp: Power Plant
  -----------------
  If you took the sidequest "Escape Together", Bob will be waiting for you at
  the entrance and becomes a companion throughout a portion of the Power
  Plant. The building is small and cramped, but exit the foyer to the west
  wing. Defeat all three enemies and a scene will play (assuming Bob is with
  you). Bob falls in combat, leaving Roy and Innocence alone.
  
  Run up the ramp to the control panel and press the button to remove the
  protective shield around the train. Drop down into the east wing and sneak
  through the chute to ambush the trio of soldiers. Search their bodies and
  check for any objects to scavenge (such as a [PURPLE CRATE] containing a
  health injection pack) before leaving.
  
  
  Camp: Station
  -------------
  After the cutscene, you are pitted in a battle against Sean, the
  Technomancer overseeing the POW camp. You can either have Innocence stay
  out of the fight or join in; I don't know if there are any negative results
  between the choices, but two is always better than one!
  
  Make sure to eliminate the Abundance soldiers first. They aren't nearly as
  strong as Sean and some of the Technomancer's spells even hurt his allies,
  so they should not last long.
  
  On the other hand, Sean is one tough customer. His weapon of choice is an
  electrical sword and has a supply of dangerous spells. He can fire lighting
  bolts at Roy, create a powerful shockwave, and can also protect him with a
  bubble shield. Refrain from physically attacking Sean if his shield is up.
  
  Try to use whatever items you have in the tactics menu. Handmade grenades
  work well, especially if you can target multiple enemies huddled together.
  The nail gun is always a good long-range option, and make sure to bind
  health injection packs to one of the three shortcut buttons.
  
  Block, dodge, and heal if your health drops to below half. Use your nail
  gun and tell Innocence to back off if the Technomancer raises his shield.
  A weapon with a chance of critical hits really help out in this fight.
  
  Roy takes Sean's Technomancer glove after the latter's death, giving him the
  ability to use Technomancer magic. Watch the cutscene and Chapter 1 will be
  in the books.

  Rewards: 4000 XP

  1. Go to Innocence's house
  2. Escape to the poor neighborhoods
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair
  ----------
  For starters, let's have a quick talk about Technomancy. You can now use
  Technomancy, thanks to the glove you stole from Sean, and spells can be set
  to the RT, LT, and RB by accessing the tactics menu. Finally, the
  Technomancy skill tree is now open.

  The two fugitives are stopped by the Aurora guards directly in front of you.
  Make sure to respond with the following answers:

  - "I just escaped from prison"
  - "Yes"
  - "He was fine when I left"
  
  One of the guards talks about Prowess - the fiance of the guard's sister.
  Give him the reassuring news and he lets you off the hook. It seems like
  nothing now, but selecting those responses opens up a sidequest later on in
  the chapter.
  
  Follow the left path, eventually leading to a courtyard populated by Aurora
  soldiers. They are fairly tough, but you can also try out your new magic
  powers here. Spells cost fluid (the aqua-colored bar beneath your health),
  and fluid regenerates periodically over time just like health. Open the
  [BLUE CRATE] in the courtyard for an iron bar.
  
  Go east to leave the courtyard and snoop around for a [PURPLE CRATE] that
  contains 18 Serum. Now continue north to reach Innocence's shop, with
  unpleasant results.
  
  Defeat the group of Aurora soldiers that catch up to you. Serum, and, in
  turn, health injection packs are hard to come across if you're playing the
  game the "good" way, so remember that your health regenerates after a few
  seconds of inactivity. If you're in a fight and out of items, stay on the
  defensive and run/hide as your health restores itself.
  
  Check the [BLUE CRATE] near the store remains for a worker's outfit and
  some chemical components, then climb the wall to reach Tierville, another
  sector of Shadowlair.
  
  At the fork, enter stealth mode and take down the Aurora soldiers. It does
  not matter which path you take, but I recommend doubling back and exploring
  both sides once the road merges into one (the right trail contains more
  items, including 18 Serum inside a [PURPLE CRATE] near the merge). There are 
  plenty of enemies in Tierville, which gives you good combat experience and 
  plenty of XP/items.
  
  One last band of Aurora soldiers guards the entrance to Sand. Defeat them
  proceed to the desert town.
  
  
  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Take a couple steps to initiate a chat with Innocence. Regardless of how
  you answer, the mission ends and two new ones open up.

  __________________________________________________________________________
  
  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  The Sand is a desert community that doesn't look all that different than the
  POW Camp. It is pretty small, so the journey to the south end should not
  take very long. There is a merchant here after going under the bridge that
  sells some nice stuff. Don't bother getting any new weapons or armor, since
  you'll be able to find them a little later in the game without any cost.
  
  Head east on the map, towards the abandoned building. Some lowlifes have
  taken residence in the hideout, so start clearing them out. There are three
  down here, and four more after climbing the ladder to the balcony.

  Don't forget to investigate the interior, where you'll find a [BLUE CRATE]
  containing 19 Serum and an iron bar.

  After hunkering down in your new pad, it's time to set out for Charity's
  bar. From the abandoned building, go through the door and follow the road
  west to see the glow of the surrounding neon lights.
  
  Roy asks Charity on the possible whereabouts of Innocence's parents, but she
  needs a favor of her own done. This opens a new mission.

  1. Find Faith in Tierville's merchant district
  2. Question Faith, Charity's friend
  3. Find a way to free Faith from the pimp
  4. Give Faith the good news
  5. Go back to see Charity
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  After accepting this quest, you can talk to Charity again and ask for an ID
  to trigger the sidequest "False Identification". Another sidequest begins as
  you head towards Tierville, as you are stopped by a man named Frugality...
  thus begins "Requiem for Dreamers". Feel free to do 'em both now, or you can
  hold off until later.
  
  Two guards are on post in front of Tierville. If you completed the "False
  Identification" sidequest, give them your papers and they let you through.
  Otherwise, you have to knock them out and they appear as enemies any time
  you enter/exit Tierville from the Sand.
  

  Tierville
  ---------
  Tierville is a fairly big location that's filled with scavenging spots and
  a bunch of enemies. Make sure to explore the city, thick and thin. Your
  goal is to reach the circular market in the center of Tierville, and you can
  access it from the south or the west.
  
  On the west side of Tierville, on the path leading east into the central
  plaza, you are stopped by the same guard that you spoke to at the start of 
  Chapter 2. If you said all the right things, then you can do the side
  mission "Smuggling". You can complete the first half of the mission, but
  before moving on to the second half you might want to find Faith first.
  
  Aurora soldiers patrol the market, as well as a Technomancer. This guy acts
  and fights like a weaker version of Sean - capable of using the same spells
  as him (and you). They all follow a similar route, so stay in the shadows
  and try to get a sneak attack to throw them for a loop. Just make sure to
  run away after defeating a Technomancer, for they explode in a blast of
  electricity.
  
  Once the coast is clear, talk to Faith. Exhaust all possible questions until
  she reveals more info about her current situation. Faith's pimp is right
  behind her. You can either pay up a hefty sum of 150 Serum or straight-up
  kill the pig. I'm not sure if one option is good and one is bad, but I went
  the safe way and paid him.
  
  Inform Faith of her freedom. Before backtracking to Charity's bar, look
  around the area a bit. You can climb up a wall to explore the upper ledge
  near the northern part of the market. There's a [BLUE CRATE] containing 41
  Serum and electrical components, and some [PURPLE CRATES] holding some
  other goodies. Most of the northeast section of the city is blocked off,
  though.

  Charity thanks Roy and Innocence and gives him a leather uniform to help
  blend in to the Resistance members.

  3. Talk to the Resistance
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  You should still be standing in front of Charity as soon as you receive this
  job, so immediately talk to her to complete the first requirement. Charity
  still needs several more things done for her, so your end of the deal is
  going to have to wait. Three new sidequests open up: "Working for Charity",
  "The Bad Payer", and "The Exhibitionist". Feel free to kill time with these
  missions (you unlock another side job by talking to Faith).
  
  Charity usually has the information you seek by the time you complete a 
  couple of these sidequests. Talk to her and she points you in the direction
  of the seedy bar in the Slums.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  Proceed through the Slums as usual and be on the lookout for the seedy bar
  on the map - it's in the southeast side of the region. Talk to your old pal
  Tranquility behind the bar; he's a bit hesitant but ultimately divulges
  the location of the Resistance hideout. 

  Turns out they are right around the corner from the bar! Walk, like four
  steps to the left and Jerry will stop you. Tell him the password "There can
  be no rest..." and he grants you access. Continue inside to meet Marco and
  Judy. They let Innocence join the group, but the leader, Marco, doesn't
  trust Roy. Following an unexpected explosion, the Resistance and Innocence 
  exit the building, leaving Roy alone.

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  With Innocence joining the Resistance, Roy is now on his own. Exit the bar
  to face off against some Aurora soldiers and a Technomancer. Down them all
  and make your way to the north part of the Slums. The pathway that was
  previously unavailable is now open thanks to the big boom. Help up Mary for
  a cutscene.
  
  
  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Mary wakes up back in the abandoned building with Roy, and she's a bit
  banged up. You can either get her some medicine or put the grieving woman
  out of her misery. The latter is a bad choice and eliminates many potential
  options in the future. Choose to get her medicine.
  
  Assuming you have a health injection pack, Roy automatically gives it to
  Mary upon talking to her.
  
  After rescuing Mary, she bluntly asks if you are going to sleep with her. 
  Kindly decline by saying "It shouldn't be an obligation" and "I'd rather you 
  had other reasons". This opens up a romance mission (which is not a
  requirement for the "Completionist" Achievement); picking one of the other 
  two answers rules it out.

  If you save Mary, she will become your companion in place of Innocence. She
  is a Technomancer and can use damaging spells, but she can be a bit reckless
  and you can get hurt from her Technomancy as well. Press Y to talk to Mary
  and ask that she tags along: the more, the merrier!

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Exit your cozy pad for a cutscene. A woman named Devotion tracks you down
  and offers you a proposition. You must meet with the so-called "general"
  in his base underneath Tierville. Getting there requires going through the
  Slums.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  This should be a quick trip. Proceed to the site of the explosion - where
  you found Mary - and open the door leading to Tierville.
  
  
  Tierville
  ---------
  You are now in the east side of Tierville, which used to be off limits. In
  the second room you encounter a bunch of Aurora soldiers. The harsh reality
  is that Mary isn't a very good sidekick: she is weak, her own attacks hurt
  you, and they take a long time to charge up. She's all you've got for the
  time being, but be aware that you may be relying on Roy more often.
  
  Up ahead is a Technomancer and some Aurora riot soldiers, so watch out.
  Before you leave, unfold the nearby ladder to create a super convenient
  shortcut. Now continue forward and descend the stairs to the Undercity.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Undercity
  ---------------------
  This area is loaded with moles, which is never a good thing. Destroy the
  first pack and walk forward towards the sounds of a prisoner's war cry.
  Climb the wall to find the remains of the prisoner, with moles surrounding.
  It's a big room with plenty of space to run and defend yourself. Once they
  have been eliminated, search the place for items and climb the wall.
  
  In the corner, on the northeast end of the map, is a [BLUE CRATE] with a
  copper tube and 27 Serum inside. If you haven't noticed by now, blue crates
  usually contain rare and nicer items than the purple ones, so be on the
  lookout for them during your journey.
  
  Defeat the last two moles and open the door. Inside is Devotion and the
  general, Honour Grant. Honour is working underneath the dowser and is just
  as fed up with the Technomancers and Roy and the Resistance. However, his
  viewpoints differ from the Resistance and wants Roy on his side. It is quite
  simple: do you side with the Resistance or with Honour? Don't worry, you
  have plenty of time to make this choice.

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Roy has a lot on his mind, so head to your hideout to try and clear your
  head. R&R is the last thing you find at the abandoned building, since you
  are ambushed by the bounty hunter Tenacity!
  
  Tenacity starts the battle by sitting on the sidelines and letting his two
  pet dogs do the dirty work. They are considerably stronger than the war dogs
  you have fought in the past, but the same general premise stands: roll
  behind then and target their back. Mary should hold her own - or at the very
  least distract one of them - while you kill the other.
  
  If your companion falls, she will be revived once the dogs die and Tenacity
  steps into the fray. The bounty hunter fights like an advanced version of a
  bandit and relies primarily on close-hand combat. He should be no match for
  the two of you if you make sure to continually alternate X and Y attacks
  (especially since you only have to drain half his health bar).

  After overcoming Tenacity's sneak attack, you have the option of killing him
  or sparing him. There is really no upside to executing Tenacity, but if you
  save his life you can let him be a companion. He is a good hand-to-hand
  fighter, as you just saw, and can be a good asset going forward.
  
  Charity is inside your home. Speak up to free her, then make your way to
  Charity's bar for your reward... I guess your reward is experience, since
  that's all you get for finishing the quest.

  Charity mentions that she heard some rumors about Innocence after you rescue
  her from Tenacity, so Roy sets off to find his young friend.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  It's only logical to start your search at the Resistance HQ in the seedy
  bar. Stop inside their meeting room to find a [PURPLE CRATE] with a health
  injection pack and some leather, then talk to Tranquility for an update. If
  you are ready to go ahead with the mission, have Tranquility take you to
  the site of the planned heist.
  
  
  Convoy
  ------
  The Resistance plans on hijacking a train, and Roy is here to help out and
  also find Innocence. The first area is filled with a large amount of Aurora
  soldiers and a single Technomancer.
  
  For the most part, the remaining pathway is a straight line. But it deviates
  slightly to the west; go this way to find a [WASTE PILE] and a [BLUE CRATE]
  with two alloys and electrical components inside. Now return to the main
  trail and move along.
  
  It's pretty much walking, then fighting, then more walking, then more
  fighting. Eventually, you find Innocence a split second too late, as he gets
  captured and arrested by Aurora.
  
  
  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Roy and your companion return to Charity's bar and vent. Charity agrees that
  you will need help from an outside source if you want to free Innocence:
  either the Resistance or Honour.

  Rewards: -

  1. Choose between the Resistance and Honour's action cell
  
  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  It is time to pick a side: the Resistance or Honour Grant. Their
  representatives are found here in the Sand: Judy of the Resistance is next
  to Faith in Charity's bar. Honour's right hand woman, Devotion, can be
  found at the abandoned building.

  NOTE: This is a pivotal part of the game, as the Resistance and Honour each
  have their own separate story and missions. Unless you want to play through
  the entire game twice, I recommend creating a separate save file here so
  that you can complete the game with one faction, reload the save point, and
  start again with the other faction.
  
  There isn't much else to say. Talk to Judy to join the Resistance, or talk
  to Devotion to join Honour's group. Your decision concludes Chapter 2, so
  make sure you have wrapped up any unfinished sidequests beforehand.
  
  
  Prison Yard
  -----------
  The following cutscene greatly varies depending on which side you choose. If
  you side with the Resistance, Innocence is executed via firing squad and Roy
  has no choice but to look on in horror. If you side with Honour, he sneaks
  Innocence out of jail and essentially puts him into witness protection.

  Either way, you continue the game without Innocence and you keep his diary.
  You should also unlock the "Mentor" Achievement if you at all interacted
  with Innocence through conversation.

  -----------------
  When you regain control of your character, Mary will have left the party and
  is replaced by Judy. If you acted nice to Mary through conversation, you
  unlock the next step in "Electrical Relationship". Furthermore, "A
  Passionate Woman" begins. Remember, romance quests do not count towards the
  "Completionist" Achievement.
  
  Roam around the tiny half of the region you can reach before continuing east
  to the Farming Village.


  Farming Village
  ---------------
  The Farming Village is a small, fairly poor community that is still brimming
  with activity. There are more jobs to pick up if you are interested, so
  make sure to get involved and speak with the townsfolk. There is also a
  merchant present, and plenty of scavenging objects, but otherwise head
  towards the northeast exit.


  Agricultural Zone
  -----------------
  You are now on the opposite end of the map. From here, walk a few steps and
  then hang a right as you proceed west. Defeat the moles and stand in front
  of the building. Instead of going inside, follow the wall to the right of
  the building and climb the stairs to reach a cliffside; loot the corpse
  lying near the edge for 25 Serum and a steel bar.
  
  Now return to the building and walk through, continuing west towards a wall
  you can hop over. Slay the three dogs here in the ruined district and then
  enter the Resistance base camp. Your other companions will be waiting for
  you here (if you have any) along with Marco. Before you chat with the
  leader, climb the stairs and jump the wall to reach the camp roof. Knock the
  ladder down to the ground to create a shortcut spanning the entire
  Agricultural Zone.

  Agricultural Zone
  -----------------
  From the Resistance camp, backtrack east as if you were heading to the north
  side of the Farming Village. When you reach an intersection, climb a ladder
  and run through a crop to the work site.


  Construction Site
  -----------------
  Hop over the wall and take down the band of Aurora soldiers. The door to the
  western trail is locked, so instead go northeast or directly north - both
  take you to the same place. Sneak around and surprise the Aurora soldiers
  and the Technomancer; the latter holds the Yard Key. Continue west towards
  the aforementioned gas valve, which is guarded by a number of baddies. Wipe
  them all out and turn the valve.
  
  With the gas valve out of commission, you can backtrack to the entrance of 
  the site by opening the south door and climbing up the ladder. At the top, 
  search the [BLUE CRATE] for electrical components and a technician's outfit. 
  Leave the area.

  -----------------
  It is time to meet up with some other Resistance members at some sort of
  secret council. Luckily, the location isn't very far away - it is between
  your location and the entrance to the Construction Site. Once you get there,
  watch the scene.
  
  Take down the Aurora soldiers and the Technomancer once you regain control; 
  the latter drops the Technomancer HQ Key upon his defeat. It's just nice to
  know that even though you are surrounded by your Resistance brethren, none
  of them decide to help you out against the opposition; not even Marco.
  Whatever.
  
  Talk things over with Marco, who is still standing at the round table, to
  wrap this incredibly short mission up. He suggests you snoop around in the
  Technomancer HQ to try and find some answers.

  You are still at the council meeting at the start of this quest. From this
  spot, make the short trip back to the Farming Village.
  
  
  Farming Village
  ---------------
  Make any pit stops along the way, otherwise cut through the village to the
  west side and enter the Industrial Complex.
  
  
  Industrial Complex
  ------------------
  From here, proceed towards the HQ on the west side of the map. You can try
  to sneak around the enemies guarding the entrance or fight them head-on.
  The Aurora soldiers and Technomancers get to be pretty challenging from
  here on out, so make sure to get the best available equipment and have them
  fully upgraded.
  
  
  Technomancer Headquarters
  -------------------------
  Even though this is a stealth/spying quest, there is no consequence for
  getting caught (aside from the obvious enemy battles). The headquarters has
  a very sharp, boxed-in layout that provides many places to hide and bypass
  enemy patrol routes. Though sometimes it's easier to clear the place out
  unless you are short on supplies.
  
  On the south side of the first room is a [BLUE CRATE] with electrical
  components and a steel bar inside. The second room is empty, so ascend the
  stairs to the third room. More enemies here; you're best off defeating them.
  Enter the southern door and jump down into the sewers to spy on Wisdom and
  the Technomancer boss from below.
  
  Once that's done with, proceed to the north region of the headquarters to
  end up in an office-type room. Take down the handful of foes and search the
  files on one of the desks to learn the identity of the Resistance traitor.
  Go down the ladder and enter the room straight ahead to find a bunch of
  [BLUE CRATES] and [PURPLE CRATES]. When you are ready, head out and return
  to camp through the Industrial Complex and Farming Village.

  Shadow Line
  -----------
  Roy ends up here as soon as "In Enemy Territory" is turned in. You won't
  make it far before a political prisoner stops you from behind a cage. Next
  up, you must find a key used to free the prisoners.
  
  Right around the corner is a group of baddies that you will need to
  neutralize. As you cross the bridge ahead, Roy takes note of the humongous
  drilling worm residing underneath. Drop down from the ledge and take on the
  enemies, leaving the dog for last since he sometimes inadvertently helps you
  out.
  
  There is one last group of enemies at the end of the line. You have no time
  to regroup after, since the Technomancer boss appears immediately after and
  knocks Roy off the cliff and into the drilling worm's grasp.
  
  The drilling worm is easy if you know what to do and how to avoid its
  attacks. You can only damage the monster when its carapace is raises,
  revealing the blood-red face underneath. The drilling worm is invulnerable
  to wounding and stun, so you may want to respec your weapons to account for
  a boost in critical hits.
  
  The drilling worm has many variations of the same general attack: smashing
  its front limbs down on the ground. It either slams its left limb, its right
  limb, both simultaneously, or both while alternating.
  
  It also uses its tiny feelers near its face to slash you when up close, but 
  they are easy to scout and can be avoided with a roll. Lastly, the worm also 
  hurls toxic green spit at you - either one giant glob or continuous fire
  like a machine gun.
  
  When the red skull face is exposed, run up and begin slashing over and over
  again. That's really all the strategy you need. You can stay face-to-face
  with the drilling worm if it uses its feeler strikes, but roll away to the
  opposite end of the room if you see the beast lurch back or rise up.
  Technomancy and your nail gun works to a degree, but only settle for them if
  you have those skill trees mastered. Keep your health up and let it recharge
  if needed, and eventually you'll win.
  
  The Technomancer boss is a lame encore, but he is the last line of defense
  and has the key in his possession. He fights like an extra powerful
  Technomancer, but two-on-one ain't fair and he should go down easily.

  You receive the Detention Key from the Technomancer boss. Return to the 
  prisoners and use the key to set them free. During the process, one of the
  guys held captive reveals some juicy gossip surrounding Marco. 


  Industrial Complex
  ------------------
  You end up at the north side of the map, near the Technomancer Headquarters.
  Backtrack to the Farming Village.
  
  
  Farming Village
  ---------------
  If you choose to proceed with the story, this is the last possible chance
  you have at visiting a merchant. Make sure to buy anything you desire and
  sell any leftover equipment that you aren't going to salvage. The next 
  mission is the last one, so make sure to wrap up all sidequests and other 
  loose ends before setting off for the Source. Pick your companion, then head 
  out. 
  
  Due to Marco's traitorous ways, you have the option of sparing his life or
  ending it. If you choose to spare him, he aids you in the next mission. If
  not, Judy is promoted to Resistance leader and only she travels with Roy to
  the Source.

  __________________________________________________________________________

  The Source
  ----------
  Your trip is halted by a group of opponents seconds after smashing into the
  building. Take everyone out before moving down the corridor to the next big
  room. A trio of foes, including a Technomancer, reside here. Take one of the
  two staircases to the chamber below.
  
  Praetorian Guards are tough, mean upgrades from the regular Technomancer.
  They are more durable and their spells can put you in a world of hurt. Use
  the same basic strategies as you would a Technomancer, but be wary of the
  fact that they are more dangerous.
  
  Once the Praetorian Guard and his cronies are toast, descend the stairs west
  to the next door. Save your game here, because the final test is on the
  other side of the metal door.
  
  Waiting for you is the Captain of the Praetorian Guard, flanked by one
  Praetorian Guard and three Aurora Elite Soldiers. This battle is a doozy;
  the two Technomancer specialists immediately throw up energy shields and
  fire long-range lightning bolts at you when you focus on the soldiers.
  Unless you have the "Charismatic" and "Natural Leader" feats, your allies
  will be virtually useless. This one lies on your shoulders.
  
  You can either take down the soldiers first or the Technomancers. In both
  cases, someone is going to be hitting you from afar while you have your
  hands full. The soldiers shouldn't be that difficult, but it's all about
  dodging electricity and trying to keep the other guys at bay.
  
  Since this is the last battle in the game, exhaust all your weapons and
  items. Get rid of all the handmade grenades, explosive traps, and nail gun
  ammo you have in your inventory. Any leftover Serum is also deemed useless,
  so craft ammunition and as many health injection packs as you can.
  
  It's probably easiest to try and eliminate one of the Technomancers before
  your allies kick the bucket. Since they throw up their shields as soon as
  the duel begins, resort to all types of projectile weapons and spells. Then
  the battle becomes significantly easier, and taking on three soldiers by
  yourself is no daunting task.
  
  Once the headache of a fight is over, proceed up the staircase and through
  the doorway for a cutscene. You are presented with one final choice: kill
  Honour Grant, who is mere seconds removed from assassinating Wisdom, or let
  him free. This choice offers no bearing on your reputation/status and only
  very slightly alters the storyline. Watch the cinema and the epilogue that 
  follows. Congratulations on completing Mars: War Logs!

  XP and items, continue west to the dead end and clear out the enemies.
  
  With the Yard Key, you can backtrack to the locked door and proceed to the
  dead end. Waste everyone here and inspect the artifact. Now backtrack to the
  entrance to the site by climbing up the ladder. At the top, search the

  the two Technomancer specialists immediately throw up energy shields and
  fire long-range lightning bolts at you when you focus on the soldiers.
  Unless you have the "Charismatic" and "Natural Leader" feats, your allies
  will be virtually useless. This one lies on your shoulders.
  
  You can either take down the soldiers first or the Technomancers. In both
  cases, someone is going to be hitting you from afar while you have your
  hands full. The soldiers shouldn't be that difficult, but it's all about
  dodging electricity and trying to keep the other guys at bay.
  
  Since this is the last battle in the game, exhaust all your weapons and
  items. Get rid of all the handmade grenades, explosive traps, and nail gun
  ammo you have in your inventory. Any leftover Serum is also deemed useless,
  so craft ammunition and as many health injection packs as you can.
  
  It's probably easiest to try and eliminate one of the Technomancers before
  your allies kick the bucket. Since they throw up their shields as soon as
  the duel begins, resort to all types of projectile weapons and spells. Then
  the battle becomes significantly easier, and taking on three soldiers by
  yourself is no daunting task.
  
  Once the headache of a fight is over, proceed up the staircase and through
  the doorway for a cutscene. Watch the cinema and the epilogue that follows.
  Congratulations on completing Mars: War Logs!

  Location: POW Camp (Part 1)
            Camp: Crater Zone (Part 2)
  Rewards: 10 Serum, 2500 EXP (Part 1)
           2500 EXP (Part 2)

  1. Find the parts needed by the mechanic
  2. Take the parts to the mechanic
  3. Check on the mechanic later on
  4. Gather the parts the mechanic needs
  5. Take the parts to the mechanic

  __________________________________________________________________________

  POW Camp
  --------
  You can grab this mission pretty much right at the start of the game. After
  you gain control of Roy, walk into the hallway leading out of the sand pit
  and talk to the bumbling mechanic. There are six total parts scattered
  around the map, each found inside crates or waste piles. You can bring up
  a transparent map by pressing Up on the D-Pad, which may help you find these
  six pieces.
  
  1. The first one is past where you fought Fatso and his thug friends, in a
     [WASTE PILE] next to the prisoner that gives Roy a cracked tube.

  2. Inside a [PURPLE CRATE] near the Cistern entrance.
  
  3. The third part is in a [WASTE PILE] located in the southwest gardening 
     area.
  
  4. After meeting Bob the friendly guard, ascend the stairs to his left and
     search the [WASTE PILE] on the overhang.

  5. Found inside the [WASTE PILE] next to the stairs leading up to the Crater
     entrance.

  6. Just outside the mess hall; check the [WASTE PILE] in the back corner
     behind some barrels.
     
  Now all you have to do is go back to the sand pit and give the parts to the
  mechanic. This ends the first portion of the sidequest, although you are
  given the task of checking in on the bloke later on.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  After your little adventure in the Drilling Well and once you've finished
  "First Steps in Prison", you'll find the unlucky mechanic in the Crater Zone
  just outside the recruitment office. There are five parts you need to get
  for him, all inside the Crater Zone.
  
  1. Walk behind the mechanic and follow the passageway north to a dead end.
     There are [2 WASTE PILES] here that both contain parts.
     
  2. Walk behind the mechanic and follow the passageway north to a dead end.
     There are [2 WASTE PILES] here that both contain parts.

  3. Head directly west of the entrance to the Crater Zone and look inside
     the [WASTE PILE] behind the tents.

  4. Follow the outskirts east of Joe's location and you should spot a [WASTE
     PILE] on the edge of a cliff.

  5. Enter the kennel and search inside a building for the parts, which are
     stowed away in a [PURPLE CRATE].

  Bring the five components back to the mechanic to finish the sidequest. Now
  the mechanic acts as a merchant, allowing you to buy and sell items by
  speaking to him.

  Location: POW Camp
  Rewards: 2500 XP, 10 Serum

  1. Deal with the dog attacks
  2. Investigate the disease affecting the dogs
  3. Find a doctor
  4. Find a veterinarian
  5. Talk to the cook
  6. Collect samples from the sick dogs
  7. Bring the ingredients to the vet
  8. Get the vaccine from the vet
  9. Give the vaccine to the dog master

  __________________________________________________________________________

  POW Camp
  --------
  You can find Bob in the southeast corner of the POW Camp (using your map,
  look for the red and black figure icon). After the cutscene, you will be
  attacked by a rabid dog. You cannot damage dogs from their front, so
  target their backside by rolling and dodging.
  
  Once the rabid dog has been put down, the quest will be activated.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  In the Crater Zone, enter the kennel region south of the recruitment office.
  You run into the Dog Master, who has his hands full with another rabid dog.
  Help him out and ask him about the recent outbreak. Roy decides to
  investigate the disease himself.
  
  NOTE: Don't progress any further in this mission until you have completed
  the "The Lucky Charm" and "Another Face" sidequests. Subsequently, these two
  side missions are best completed after finishing all the main story missions
  aside from "The Great Escape". In short: hold off on doing any sidequests
  until you are ready to progress with "The Great Escape".
  
  As a safety precaution, this should be the last sidequest you complete in
  Chapter 1. In the recruitment office, ask the desk jockey for information
  regarding the disease and he sends you the way to a doctor.
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  You can find the doctor (well technically a male nurse) down at the sand pit
  in the POW Camp. He is of little help, and instead suggests you find a
  veterinarian. Make your way to the mess hall and consult to Jey.
  
  Luckily, one is found right here in the mess and spends his days as a chef. 
  The vet-turned-cook, Solidarity, requires samples from the dogs in order to 
  make a cure. The first one is found in the courtyard west of Bob's post;
  slay the beast and collect a sample. Now continue to the Crater Zone.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  You run into a pair of sick dogs smack dab in the center of the map. You
  need to fend off both, but only one contains a viable sample. Remember to
  search their bodies after for potential items. Lastly, the third sample can
  be collected from the rabid dog living in the Dust settlement. 
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  Bring all three dog samples to the vet in the mess. He needs some time to
  concoct a cure, so give him some space and return to the Crater Zone.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  Upon entering the area, the dog accompanying the Abundance army sergeant
  goes insane, forcing Roy to step in. Aid the sergeant in putting down his
  faithful dog. From here on out, you can no longer talk to the army sergeant,
  which is why it is imperative to complete "The Lucky Charm" and "Another
  Face" prior to this scene.
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  By now, Solidarity should be done with the vaccine. Go pick it up.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  Enter the kennel once again and give the vaccine to the dog master. He
  thanks you for your hard work and the mission ends.

  Location: POW Camp
  Rewards: 2500 EXP

  1. Persuade Bob to speak
  2. Find out why Bob is depressed (1/3)
  3. Find out why Bob is depressed (2/3)
  4. Find out why Bob is depressed (3/3)
  5. Find a way to get Bob sent back home

  __________________________________________________________________________

  POW Camp
  --------
  After meeting Bob and defeating the rabid dog, talk to the guard and try to
  be friendly with your questions/answers. Keep asking Bob all available
  questions, including whether or not he's feeling well. If he dismisses your
  curiosity, then go do other things and return.

  If Bob won't open up to you immediately, he usually will after you meet with
  Innocence at the mess and talk to Jey. Make sure to save your game here!
  There are several pathways you can take, and only one option leads to
  unlocking the "Completionist" Achievement. 
  
  Chat with Bob and keep pushing him for info in the nicest way possible.
  He'll talk about boredom, his frustration with his job, and his family back 
  home.
  
  Keep talking to Bob and specifically mention your escape plan, and include
  him in it. The other option includes poisoning Bob and sending him home due
  to his illness, which subsequently unlocks the "Indigestible Meal" quest.
  Both choices completes this mission, but offering to poison Bob prevents
  you from unlocking the followup mission "Escape Together", and you'll miss
  out on the "Completionist" Achievement.
  

.-----------------.__________________________________________________________
| Escape Together |__________________________________________________________|
'-----------------'

  Location: POW Camp
  Rewards: -

  1. Convince Bob to join the group
  2. Find Bob at the power plant

  __________________________________________________________________________

  POW Camp
  --------
  During your conversation with Bob, make sure you look for and pick the 
  following options:
  
  - "You could escape..."
  - "Actually, I've got a plan"
  - "The plan's solid, I promise"
  - "Do you want to stay and rot here?"
  
  After selecting these choices, Bob will join your escape team. The quest
  will be put on hold for a long while until you end up at the Power Plant.

  
  Camp: Power Plant
  -----------------
  By entering the Power Plant during "The Great Escape", you will find Bob at
  the entrance and he becomes a second companion and the quest is
  automatically completed. Unfortunately, Bob becomes mortally wounded during
  the heist and fails in escaping.


.-------------------.________________________________________________________
| Indigestible Meal |________________________________________________________|
'-------------------'

  Location: POW Camp
  Rewards: -

  1. Find mildew in the camp in shaded areas
  2. Bring the mildew to the cook
  3. Take the meal to Bob

  __________________________________________________________________________

  NOTE: This is the bad route that stems from your talk with Bob during "The
  Blues". Choosing to hurt/poison Bob unlocks this mission instead of "Escape
  Together" (the good route).


  POW Camp
  --------
  Talk to Bob and offer to hurt him. Bob specifically states that he needs to
  get sick in order to be removed from duty. Talk to the chef in the mess
  hall, Solidarity, to get him to whip up a nasty concoction. Solidarity needs
  three pieces of mildew in order to make a poisonous meal; they look like
  bright green spores growing out of the ground.
  
  1. The first is right inside the mess hall, next to the entrance.
  
  2. More mildew is located in a corner opposite the door leading to the
     Cistern.
    
  3. The final batch of mildew is found in the sand pit, where you first
     start the game.
    
  Return to Solidarity with the mildew. He asks if you want to add in all the
  mildew, half, or just a little bit. Adding all the mildew ends up killing
  Bob, putting in half makes him a lil' too sick, and adding "just a bit"
  successfully causes Bob to be sent home. But there is no reward for
  completing this quest; another reason why you should ask Bob to help in
  your escape plan rather than this gross option.


.-------------------.________________________________________________________
| An Explosive Plan |________________________________________________________|
'-------------------'

  Location: Camp: Crater Zone
  Rewards: 2500 XP, Handmade Grenade, Explosive Trap, 10 Serum

  1. Get the schematic diagram of the bomb
  2. Find the bomb components
  3. Bring the ingredients back to Prowess

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  At some point after "The Mole Queen", you may hear some arguing coming from
  the west end of the Crater Zone. If you go over and investigate, you find a
  few prisoners harassing a poor mutant. The confrontation leads to a number
  of conversation options, but the only correct choice is "You sure it's a
  good idea?".
  
  After selecting the proper response, go 'round the corner south of here to
  find Prowess. Aid him in his plan in retrieving an explosive blueprint from
  the higher-ups. As Prowess distracts Joe with some small talk, walk around
  the desk and begin opening all the [PURPLE CRATES] - one of them contains
  the handmade bomb design, and the rest all hold nice supplies.
  
  Now that he has the schematic, Prowess asks Roy to fetch all the necessary
  components.
  
  1. Step inside the tent behind Prowess and open the [PURPLE CRATE] for
     the first set of components.
  
  2. Head directly east from here into the dog kennel. Inside, look for a
     [PURPLE CRATE] with the components inside.

  3. The final piece is inside the recruitment office, in a [PURPLE CRATE].
  
  Bring all three parts to Prowess and, as a reward, he gives you some
  explosive supplies (a handmade grenade and explosive trap). To boot, you
  can now purchase equipment from Prowess.


.-----------------.__________________________________________________________
| The Lucky Charm |__________________________________________________________|
'-----------------'

  Location: POW Camp
  Rewards: 2500 XP, 10 Serum

  1. Get Jey's lucky charm
  2. Give Jey back his "lucky charm"

  __________________________________________________________________________

  POW Camp
  --------
  Once you have completed all main quests sans "The Great Escape", Jey offers
  to help with your escape plan and you can start this mission. Find Jey in
  the mess hall and ask "Problem? You don't look so good." to start the
  quest.
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  Talking to the Abundance army sergeant outside the recruitment office
  reveals more info about the lucky charm, but he's pretty confrontational.
  Respond with "Let's try to find an arrangement" to unlock the accompanying
  side mission "Another Face": the sergeant will hand over Jey's lucky charm
  so long as you can find him a portrait of a woman.
  
  Selecting other options will still get the lucky charm, but they include
  fighting the guard and prevent you from completing "Another Face".
  
  
  POW Camp
  --------
  Meet up with Jey in the mess hall and give his lucky charm back... turns out
  it's a picture of his wife! How sweet.

  Location: Camp: Crater Zone
  Rewards: -

  1. Find a portrait of a woman
  2. Get a portrait of a woman from Fatso
  3. Take the portrait to the guard

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  This job is only unlocked by taking up on "The Lucky Charm" sidequest. Head
  to the Crater Zone and speak with the army sergeant, responding with "Let's
  try to find an arrangement". Any other response will cause you to pass over
  this mission. The sergeant admits that he's been lonely and desires a
  photo of a (preferably) scantily-clad woman.
  
  NOTE: Make sure to halt all progress on Mean Dogs if you want to access this
  mission. Otherwise, the army sergeant's dog goes rabid and you lose out on
  the sidequest.


  POW Camp
  --------
  Inquire about a sexy photo at the mess hall; Jey suggests looking for Fatso.
  From the entrance to the Crater Zone, go south to find Fatso and start a
  duel. Fatso is joined by four of his cronies, but they are weak and can be
  taken down with some physical strikes in between blocks and rolls (plus
  Innocence can always lend a hand).
  
  
  Camp: Crater Zone
  -----------------
  Now that you have the photo, bring it to the Abundance army sergeant. As
  agreed, he forks over the lucky charm.

  Location: Shadowlair: The Sand
  Rewards: 3500 XP

  1. Get the junkies in Frugality's workshop out
  2. Go back and inform Frugality that his workshop is free again

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  After the story mission "Find Faith" begins, a new NPC appears blocking the
  road to Tierville. Frugality stops you if you try to walk past and asks for
  your assistance: just your typical "my workshop has been raided by vicious
  drug users" request. 

  Frugality's workshop is directly east of his location. Go inside to
  interrupt an argument between the junkies and a woman named Providence.
  Just don't be a jerk and instigate a fight, and Providence pleads you to go
  after the drug dealer instead. Make sure to make the "good" choices ("Ok,
  I'll go after the dealer...") and do not beat up the two kids; this unlocks
  a related side mission.
  
  Technically you can complete this mission the bad way (beating up the kids),
  but this upsets Providence and prevents you from doing the accompanying
  side mission "The Dealer". Avoid doing things this way.
  
  Either complete "The Dealer" or rough the kids up to get them out of the
  workshop. Now return to Frugality to give him the news.

  Location: Shadowlair: The Sand
  Rewards: 3500 XP, 10 Serum

  1. Find Serenity, the dealer who is selling to Providence's son, in the
     Slums
  2. Convince Serenity to stop selling to Chance's group. 

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  To unlock this quest, you must follow the "good" route during the "Requiem
  for Dreamers" side mission. Basically, avoid choosing to beat up the
  druggies and tell Providence you'll hunt down their dealer instead. Exit
  the workshop and follow the map east and then south to the Slums.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  The Slums is pretty shady and mainly inhabited by bandits, so this won't be
  a walk in the park. The northern doorway leading to Tierville is blocked
  and won't be opened until later in the chapter.
  
  Defeat the five bandits at the entrance and proceed east into the tunnels.
  Follow them to the marker on the map to confront the dealer. If you have a
  bad enough reputation, you can intimidate Serenity into cutting ties with
  the kids. Otherwise knock some sense into him.

| False Identification |_____________________________________________________|

  Location: Shadowlair: The Sand
  Rewards: -

  1. Meet Probity the forget in the North neighborhood
  2. Help Probity avert suspicion
  3. Free Probity's workshop
  4. Get false ID from Probity

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  After meeting Charity and accepting the "Find Faith" job, talk to her once
  more and ask for an ID to unlock this sidequest. Your destination is the
  Slums, which are accessed via the east side of town.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  Defeat the bandit group at the entrance, then take either path to the south
  end of the map. Take down some more bandit enemies and exit to the North
  Neighborhood.
  
  From here, continue north and ignore the nearby mission marker (an Aurora
  soldier turns you around). Head north into the square and take out the six
  or seven bandits (yikes!). Climb the wall and run east, going up the stairs
  and turn the corner. Speak to Probity and agree to get rid of the Aurora
  squadron ransacking his place.
  
  Your adventure takes you to the south portion of the neighborhood, where
  there is another group of bandits waiting for you. Eliminate them and hide
  some fake evidence in the nearby bin. Now return to Probity's house (the
  first quest marker) and talk to the soldier, saying "I figure you've got the
  wrong target". This gets the soldiers out of Probity's hair (well he is
  bald, but you know what I mean).
  
  If you want to be up front about things, you can actually provoke the guards
  into fighting you and skipping the entire fake evidence step. But if you do
  this, then you annoy Probity and end up having to pay Serum for the papers.
  
  Either way, pick up your ID and be on your way.

  1. Find false identification papers for Tranquility
  2. Go back to see Tranquility

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  The police in the Slums are cracking down on immigrants without proper 
  documentations, and one bartender named Tranquility needs some ID in order
  to get into the town. Tranquility can be found near the entrance to
  Tierville, and helping him out will begin this job.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  Head to the southern end of the area and proceed to the North Neighborhood.
  You basically complete this sidequest in conjunction with "False
  Identification". Follow the guide for the aforementioned quest by finding
  Probity, then getting rid of the Aurora squad raiding his home.
  
  You can either plant evidence and send the soldiers on a false trail (good)
  or simply beat them all up (bad). Regardless, you can now get papers for
  Tranquility.


  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Tranquility is ecstatic about getting some new identification, and even
  gives you a copper tube for your troubles.

| Smuggling |________________________________________________________________|
'-----------'

  Location: Tierville
  Rewards: 3500 XP, 90 Serum

  1. Find proof against the smugglers
  2. Take the merchandise to Integrity in Tierville

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Tierville
  ---------
  Okay, recap. At the start of Chapter 2, you are stopped by a pair of Aurora
  guards. During the conversation, choose the following conversation options:
  
  - "I just escaped from prison"
  - "Yes"
  - "He was fine when I left"

  If you did this, the guards stop you later in the chapter in the merchant
  district of Tierville and the mission begins. They are found in the west
  side of town, on the road leading west from the main circle.
  
  During this recon operation, you need to find some intel on the supposed
  smugglers in Tierville. The first hideout can be reached by following the
  east branch from the gates at the Sand. Kill everyone inside, then search
  the [PURPLE CRATES]; some contain Serum and components, but one holds the
  first piece of evidence.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  The second hideout is ways away from here - in the North Neighborhood of the
  Slums. Right upon entering the neighborhood, open the door in front of you
  and get down to business. There's just one dude in here, so it should not
  take long.
  
  
  Tierville
  ---------
  With both pieces of merchandise in your inventory, proceed back to
  Integrity's location. Out of the two conversation options, make sure to
  pick "Just how legal is all this?" and Integrity begrudgingly triples your
  reward - 90 Serum!

  1. Keep Humility, a pervert, away from the bar for good
  2. Get the money from Morality, the bad payer
  3. Transport the money for the girls of Charity's bar
  4. Teach the Mafiosi threatening Charity a lesson

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sands
  ---------------------
  A number of sidequests become available after "Find Faith". Talk to Charity
  to receive three of them, including this one. The other two coincide with
  this mission. Complete "The Exhibitionist" and "The Bad Payer" to knock off
  the first two requirements (look below for a detailed walkthrough on both).
  
  NOTE: During "The Bad Payer", choosing to kill Morality unlocks the fourth
  part of this mission.
  
  NOTE: After completing "The Bad Payer", you can either give Charity the
  stolen Serum or lie and keep it all to yourself. By giving her the money,
  you unlock the third part of this mission.
  
  In order to take care of the third and fourth mission requirements, you must
  finish the sidequests "The Transporter" and "The Mafia's Threats" (which
  Charity immediately gives to you assuming you met the prerequisites). Check
  out their appropriate section for more in-depth info. Here is a rundown of
  what you need to do to finish this quest:
  
  - complete "The Exhibitionist"
  - complete "The Bad Payer"
  - complete "The Transporter"
  - complete "The Mafia's Threats"


.-------------------.________________________________________________________
| The Exhibitionist |________________________________________________________|

  2. Find a way to make sure he never comes back to Charity's bar
  3. Go back and inform Charity the work is done

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sands
  ---------------------
  You receive this mission after talking to Charity following "Find Faith".
  "The Exhibitionist" and "The Bad Payer" are directly linked to the third
  sidequest Charity gives you, "Working for Charity".

  Head to the east side of town and go as if you were entering the Slums. A
  creep is standing in the corner near the Slums entrance, and unsurprisingly,
  this weirdo is Humility. He doesn't take kindly to your presence, so either
  intimidate him or beat the tar out of him. Humility agrees to skip town.
  
  Return to Charity to complete this mission.

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sands
  ---------------------
  You receive this mission after talking to Charity following "Find Faith".
  "The Exhibitionist" and "The Bad Payer" are directly linked to the third
  sidequest Charity gives you, "Working for Charity". Morality is the man you
  are looking for, and he currently resides in Tierville.
  
  
  Tierville
  ---------
  Morality is found in the northwest part of Tierville. Proceed to his
  location and interrogate the penny pincher. You have no choice but to fight
  him and his gang, so get to work. Afterwards, you can either execute him or
  spare him.
  
  NOTE: It seems counterproductive, but you actually need to kill Morality in 
  order to unlock a sidequest later on in the chapter.
  
  As a result, I suggest executing Morality. Despite your choice, you can now
  go back to Charity.
  
  
  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Inform Charity of your actions; you can either give Charity all of
  Morality's Serum, or lie and keep it all for yourself.
  
  NOTE: If you want to unlock the second part of "Working for Charity", make 
  sure to hand over the Serum! You lose out on 50 Serum, but you gain more
  work to do.

  from Morality after "The Bad Payer". If you lie and keep it for yourself,
  you'll miss out.


  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  The second half of "Working for Charity" includes this mission along with
  "The Mafia's Threats". Honesty is in the bar on the floor below Charity. 
  Engage in a conversation with him to get the ball rollin'. Tell him "Let's
  go now" and make a beeline for Tierville.
  
  
  Tierville
  ---------
  Honesty is waiting for you at the entrance to Tierville. This is a good,
  old-fashioned escort mission; I am sure most fans of video games know what
  this entails. The banker is in the northwest corner, in the exact location
  as Morality in one of the previous missions.

  Honesty helps out in battles, but doesn't have a health bar and therefore
  cannot be killed. So it's a really easy version of an escort mission.
  Bandits pop up here and there along your trip, so take the time to heal in
  between groups.
  
  During the second wave of enemies, Honesty dies. You cannot avoid it, and
  Roy offers to take the money the rest of the way. After defeating the third
  set of bandits, Roy meets up with the banker and gets a receipt for the
  transaction.
  
  
  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  The sidequest ends after giving Charity the receipt.

  NOTE: During "The Bad Payer", you can choose to execute Morality or spare
  him. In order to unlock this sidequest, you must kill Morality.


  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  The second half of "Working for Charity" includes this mission along with
  "The Transporter". The mafia is located in Tierville.
  
  
  Tierville
  ---------
  Once you reach the market, access the north side via the northwest door or
  the northeast wall to find the mafiosi. There are about seven or so of 'em, 
  so be careful. Feel free to utilize any of your explosive items or 
  Technomancer spells. Once they're dead, loot their corpses and start
  trekking back to the Sand.

  Backtrack to Charity's bar once again and talk to Charity. She thanks you

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  A very vague, but very important side mission. You aren't given much info at
  the start of things, so it is probably best to leave this one alone until
  you wrap up a couple other sidequests. Additionally, another mission that
  ties in with this one becomes available in the Slums ("Fidelity Lost").
  
  
  Tierville
  ---------
  Once you have spoken with Fortitude in the Slums and agreed to help look for
  his lost wife, go to Tierville. Follow all the necessary steps in "Fidelity
  Lost" to wrap that one up and gather more information on the Coin Killer
  and his antics. Unsurprisingly, given his codename, you find a coin on
  Fidelity's body. Now head to the Slums for some more sleuthing.
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  While you're here, finish the final step in "Fidelity Lost" and meet up with
  Serenity. Turns out he used to sell EBL and tells you a bit about his past
  customers. Once you have the description of the two suspects, head to
  Probity's workshop in the North Neighborhood and ask him about the coin. He
  points you in the direction of Frugality in the Sand.
  
  
  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Frugality admits to making the coin, which certainly raises an eyebrow. But
  he then mentions that it was made at the request of an unknown individual.
  The craftsman then gives Roy the address of the mystery person... somewhere
  in Tierville...
  
  
  Tierville
  ---------
  The quest marker brings you to the west side of town. Just before the marker
  is a man named Chastity, looking all suspicious n' stuff. He's jittery right
  off the bat, but continue talking to the fella and don't kill him. Bluff,
  and he admits that he only buys EBL and then redistributes it. Let it
  slide and spare Chastity.
  
  Now go down the northern staircase to find a man named Gallantry. If it's
  not Chastity, then it's gotta be this nutjob. Like before, keep talking to
  your suspect and choose to bluff. It leads nowhere, so then choose to
  attack Gallantry. After the fight, you can either spare him or put an end
  to the Coin Killer drama.
  
  NOTE: Fight the urge to kill Gallantry and instead spare his life. It seems
  like the crazy thing to do, but sparing the Coin Killer's life will open up
  a sidequest in the next chapter.


  Shadowlair: The Sand

  Deliver the news to Faith. After some awkward conversation, she rewards your
  efforts.

  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  After accepting "The Coin Killer" mission from Faith, return to the Slums
  and look for a somber man on the west side of the map. The gentleman, named
  Fortitude, mentions that his wife has been missing for an uncomfortable
  amount of time. Tell him you'll keep an eye out for her, and he hands over a
  photo of Fidelity.


  Tierville
  ---------
  Head to the market, then look for some potential witnesses. Start with the
  guy named Valiance and he fills you in on a couple important clues. From
  here, proceed east towards the fork and go downstairs to find the body of a
  woman... you can put two and two together. Talk to Providence about EBL and
  anything else related to the drug. This helps complete several bullet points
  in "Fidelity Lost" and "The Coin Killer".
  
  
  Shadowlair: Slums
  -----------------
  Return to Fortitude and tell him what you found. It is not the answer he was
  hoping for, but nevertheless he thanks you for your troubles. If you want to
  be a nice guy, reject his Serum offer, or if you don't care you can take his
  money.

  __________________________________________________________________________
  
  NOTE: This is one of three relationship sidequests in the game. Based on
  what faction you choose, you are limited to two of them. Since you can only
  complete one of the three in one playthrough, it's impossible to complete
  all of them and therefore none of them contribute to the "Completionist"
  Achievement.


  Shadowlair: The Sand
  --------------------
  Following the events of "A Strange Explosion", Mary will be by your side.
  Choose to give her a health injection pack and when she offers to sleep
  with you, pick the following:
  
  - "It shouldn't be an obligation"
  - "I'd rather you had other reasons"

  Now Mary will become your companion and you have the option of wooing her.
  Throughout your partnership, try to talk to her with Y and engage in
  pleasant conversation. Always respond with the nice/good answers; most of
  them are blatantly obvious and just avoid being mean at all. After working
  with her more, she will begin to open up to you and more options become
  available.

  
  Agricultural Zone
  -----------------
  Once you begin Chapter 3, the option to meet Mary at your team's campground
  becomes available. If you managed to keep things pleasant with her, she
  opens up to Roy more. This set of dialogue is more straightforward and she
  should reveal her intention to be with you. Agree, and you will complete the
  romance quest.

  2. Take back the food stolen by the Dust
  3. Take the food back to the village
  4. Lie to Impartiality to protect the mutants

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Farming Village
  ---------------
  You hear a fair amount of ruckus coming from the center of town; go check it
  out. Impartiality says that apparently the Dust living at the nearby
  Industrial Complex has stolen some of their food. Help 'em out and make for
  the complex entrance.
  
  
  Industrial Complex
  ------------------
  The mutant suspects are lingering around the middle of the complex. Talk to
  the one named Garbage to interrogate him. If you respond with "Give me what
  you took!", you can either intimidate him or do battle with the group. Go
  for a more sympathetic approach:
  
  - "What do you mean?"
  - "I may be able to help you"
  - "Out with it!"
  - "Fine, I'll take care of it"
  
  Triggering these answers is the "good" way to complete this mission, and it
  also unlocks another side mission. Getting the food back via scare tactics
  or by brute force prevents the progression of "A Helping Hand for the
  Mutants" sidequest. You fail steps 2 and 3, but step 4 becomes available.
  
  
  Farming Village

  If you decide to help the mutants, Roy lets them keep the food and now must
  lie to Impartiality.

  During the "Theft From the Stores" side mission, you interrogate a mutant

  - "I may be able to help you"
  - "Out with it!"
  - "Fine, I'll take care of it"

  Roy lets the mutants keep the food and helps find the medication they need.
  Choose any other dialogue option and the quest won't unlock. Head back to
  the Farming Village.

  The medicine Garbage and the others require is in the southwest corner of
  the village. Walk over to the quest marker and press A to steal the

  Well that was easy. Hand over the medicine to complete the transaction

  Equity stands near the outskirts of town, not too far from the large
  gathering at the center of the village. After some rambling, he reveals that
  a young girl was murdered recently and was found clutching an old coin in
  her hands... sound familiar? It's no surprise that the Coin Killer could not
  stay away after sparing him.

  Your map won't be much use, since it doesn't show you the Coin Killer's
  current location. But that's where I come in! Return to the west side of the
  Agricultural Zone.

  __________________________________________________________________________

  Farming Village
  ---------------
  There is an old farmer named Tolerance standing angrily at the northeast
  side of town. If you choose to help him out, he asks to clear the mole
  infestation from his crops. 


  Agricultural Zone
  -----------------
  Use the door behind the farmer to reach the east side of the Agricultural
  Zone. The crops are not far from here; just at the top of a nearby ladder.
  The crops have been overrun by not only moles, but a mole queen as well!

  This is a challenging fight due to the presence of the queen and the overall
  large amount of enemies. Place explosive traps, throw handmade grenades, and
  fire away with your nail gun. Try to help out your companion so it's not 
  one-on-a ton. You are powerful enough to defeat a mole queen at this stage
  in the game, so give it your all. This is where scavenging components and
  crafting items comes in handy.
  
  Phew! Loot all the bodies, including the two dead humans tucked away in the
  plants, then return to Tolerance.

  For your good deed, Tolerance extends his deepest gratitude... and some
  cash.

  Farming Village
  ---------------
  Some time after aiding Tolerance the farmer in "Sympathy for the Farmer", he
  stops you the next time to pass his location. He says the crops still aren't
  coming in and asks for you to investigate once more. Fine.
  
  
  Agricultural Zone
  -----------------
  You won't find any moles ransacking the crops, but instead a dude standing
  in the back of a field. Have a chat with Sympathy, and he cracks under
  pressure pretty easily. Regardless of the choice you make, Roy tells him to
  hit the road and Sympathy does as told.
  
  
  Farming Village
  ---------------
  Talk to Tolerance again and give him the heads up. You can either rat out
  Sympathy to Tolerance (bad) or keep his identity anonymous (good). The
  farmer pays up either way.

==============================================================================

Mars: War Logs is an RPG, after all, so it is no surprise that you are able to
upgrade and characterize Roy to a certain extent. The game features skills and
character feats: skills are techniques and upgrades that can be unlocked by
leveling up. There are three skill trees (Combat, Renegade, Technomancy), so
see which one suits you best before allocating your skill points. 

Character feats also require you to level up, but you usually need to follow
certain requirements in order to access them.


==============================================================================
 SKILLS                                                                 [0601]
==============================================================================

There are three available skill trees: Renegade, Combat, and Technomancy (the
third one not being available until the start of Chapter 2). Renegade focuses
on stealth and defensive strategies, Combat hones in on your offensive powers,
and Technomancy upgrades your magic spells. Each skill has two additional
upgrades on top of the initial unlocking, meaning that you can spend three
skill points on a single skill. You get two skill points every time you level
up.

.-----------------------.
| Aurora Execution (15) |
'-----------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Finish Chapter 2 at any difficulty level
  
  
  Strategy
  --------
  Storyline progression. You unlock this Achievement after completing the
  story mission "Choose a Side".


.--------------------.
| Completionist (50) |
'--------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Finish all of the secondary quests in Mars: War Logs


  Strategy
  --------
  This can be very challenging without the aid of a walkthrough - some side
  missions can be missed depending on your dialogue choices throughout the
  game. Here is a list of the sidequests necessary to unlocking this
  Achievement (see Section 5 for detailed coverage):

  Chapter 1:
  - Handyman's Assistance

  - Escape Together
  - An Explosive Plan
  - The Lucky Charm
  - Another Face

.--------------.
| Crowbar (30) |
'--------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Empty 50 containers


  Strategy
  --------
  Containers include purple and blue crates. They are prominent features in
  Mars: War Logs and, if you are a diligent snooper, you should get this
  some point during Chapter 2.


.----------------.
| Good Start (5) |
'----------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Upgrade a skill


  Strategy
  --------
  Easy, and practically an unmissable Achievement. After leveling up for the
  first time, spend one of your skill points.


.--------------------.
| Hard as Nails (50) |
'--------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________
  
  Finish the game in Difficult mode


  Strategy
  --------
  Simply beat the game on the required difficulty (the main walkthrough is
  based on the Medium difficulty). I recommend that you beat the game at least
  once so you are a bit more experienced. In addition, it is suggested that
  you follow the bad route so you have access to more Serum and generally have
  an easier time.


.-----------------------------.
| Hero of the Resistance (20) |
'-----------------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Finish the game with the Resistance at any difficulty level


  Strategy
  --------
  It doesn't matter what difficulty you are playing on so long as you side
  with the Resistance in the Chapter 2 mission "Choose a Side" and complete
  the final story mission. Make a save point before or during this quest so 
  that you don't have to restart the entire game over again if you want to
  play again on the other faction.


.--------------------.
| Man of Honour (20) |
'--------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Finish the game with Honour Grant at any difficulty level


  Strategy
  --------
  It doesn't matter what difficulty you are playing on so long as you side
  with Honour Grant in the Chapter 2 mission "Choose a Side" and complete the
  final story mission. Make a save point before or during this quest so that
  you don't have to restart the entire game over again if you want to play
  again on the other faction.


.-------------.
| Mentor (30) |
'-------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Influence Innocence's personality during your conversations


  Strategy
  --------
  During your partnership with Innocence in Chapters 1 and 2, make sure to
  talk to him with Y and engage in conversation. The dialogue choices do not 
  matter here, so just exhaust all possible conversation options. Innocence 
  will no longer be an active companion following Chapter 2, so when you begin
  Chapter 3 the Achievement should pop up.


.--------------.
| Mutant (100) |
'--------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Finish the game in Extreme mode


  Strategy
  --------
  Simply beat the game on the required difficulty (the main walkthrough is
  based on the Medium difficulty). I recommend that you beat the game at least
  once so you are a bit more experienced. In addition, it is suggested that
  you follow the bad route so you have access to more Serum and generally have
  an easier time.


.-------------------.
| Pest Control (10) |
'-------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Kill 15 moles


  Strategy
  --------
  Moles are enemies commonly found in the Drilling Well (Chapter 1),
  Shadowlair: Undercity (Chapter 2), and the Agricultural Zone (Chapter 3).
  But 15 is a small amount and you should get it during Chapter 1.


.-------------------.
| Plot Smasher (20) |
'-------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Finish Chapter 3 at any difficulty level


  Strategy
  --------
  Storyline progression. You unlock this Achievement after completing the
  story mission "Political Prisoners" (Resistance) or "Shadowy Experiments"
  (Honour).


.----------------.
| Recycling (10) |
'----------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Upgrade an object


  Strategy
  --------
  If you have a weapon or armor with at least one upgrade slot, press X in the
  inventory menu and use components to upgrade it. Upgrading equipment is
  essential to survival so you should unlock this Achievement very early in
  the game.


.-----------------.
| Specialist (30) |
'-----------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Unlock every skill and upgrade in a single skill tree


  Strategy
  --------
  First and foremost, this Achievement is a lot easier if you unlock the
  "Quick Learner", "Combat Spirit", and "Combat Genius" character feats: this
  gives you boosted XP from defeated enemies. In turn, you level up quicker.
  With this in mind, and assuming that you are dedicating all your skill
  points to a single tree and a single tree only, you should be able to max
  one out at around Level 20. I ended the game with a Level 26 character, so
  you should have some leeway if you chose to deviate a bit.


.-----------------------.
| The Great Escape (10) |
'-----------------------'
  ____________________________________________________________________________

  Finish Chapter 1 at any difficulty level


  Strategy
  --------
  Storyline progression. You unlock this Achievement after completing the
  story mission "The Great Escape".
