    1.0 INTRODUCTION
    ________________
    Welcome to Paragon City! Below is a guide to help you get around the various 
    zones in the Birthplace of Tomorrow, a list of special places to see and a 
    bit of a look at the unsavoury characters who may cross your path in your 
    travels.
    
    This is not an all-inclusive guide and certainly hasn't been written to 'ruin' 
    people's experiences of discovering Paragon City for themselves. Instead, this 
    should be seen as merely an aid to the hero seeking to orientate himself in 
    the big City and assist in combating crime.
    
    
    1.1 FAIR USE AND EMAIL POLICY
    _____________________________
    As collator and creator of this guide, I have no problems with its use and 
    distribution provided that 1) it is distributed in an unaltered state and 2) 
    that access to it is free (ie you do not need to pay an access fee of any type 
    to purchase use of this guide). If you wish to alter this guide and / or 
    charge for it's use, permission must first be sought from the creator 
    (ie me ;-).
    
    If you wish to email me, PLEASE put something in the subject line about City 
    of Heroes. I tend to delete emails with no subject line on the grounds that 
    it is spam. Also, all submissions will be credited to their contributors, so 
    if you send me info that gets included in this guide you will have your name 
    credited in the Contributors section (5.2), along with some general 
    recognition of the type of information you provided. Please include a name 
    (any name or nic) for me to use as I dislike putting contributor email 
    addresses in guides.
    
    
    1.2 UPDATE NOTES
    ________________
    -More thorought notes on guide changes can be seen in section 5.3 (VERSION
    NOTES). Below is just a quick guide to any major guide changes / info -
    
    *Guide release notes: Launch is April 28 2004, but those with pre-order disks 
    got in on April 25. This guide (to this point) was predominantly written 
    during beta, so some information may no longer be valid. Please be patient 
    when playing and don't take this guide as gospel!
    
    * Update 23 June 2004: As far as I can tell, most of the information in this 
    guide is still pretty valid. Some of the early zones have a few more villain 
    groups to fight (eg Vahzilok) but other than that, things are still mostly 
    accurate. How Update 1 (Through the Looking Glass) will change that I have 
    no idea.
    
    * Update 14 September 2004: Issue 2 is due out shortly, which will introduce
    a number of new zones and features. I'll add these in as I manage to explore
    them.
    
    * Update 11 October 2004: Have added in a little bit of the changes made by
    Issue 2, but what has absorbed my time is confirming the location of badges.
    I have included badge information in the relevant zones / neighbourhoods after
    confirming their /loc. The badge list I am using comes from:
    
    http://www.unseen.net/coh/badges.php
    
    and a big thanks to Lopt to letting me use it in this guide.
    
    
    1.3 PLEASE READ: I'M ABANDONING THIS GUIDE...
    _____________________________________________
    
    With some sadness I've accepted the fact that I am unable to keep up with the 
    updates required to keep this guide current. "Issue #6: Along Came a Spider" 
    has  come out and  I'm still lacking info from Issue #2! 
    
    As such, I'm abandoning this guide. It was fun while it lasted (it started in
    beta and continued for about 18 months) but I'd rather abandon the guide
    than keep to the current haphazard schedule of updating.
    
    Instead, I recommend that all those looking for information on where to go in
    Paragon City to head to 
    
    http://www.vidiotmaps.com 
    
    to find out the important features of all zones. Even better, download their 
    map patch which will let you see the revised maps in-game (although this may be 
    against a strict interpretation of CoH's terms of service, Cryptic / NCSoft
    haven't imposed any sanctions against users of the map patch at this point).
    
    I hope people have found some use for this guide, even in its incomplete state.
    It was a great thrill for me that, in the early days just after CoH's release,
    that Gamefaqs.com had the CoH guide page in its top ten (it went as low as #4,
    I think) and that this Tourist Guide was one of only two guides available for
    this great game.
    
    Anyway, thanks all - if you wish to say hi, I'm UnSub on the Virtue server.

    2.0 PARAGON CITY ZONES
    ______________________
    All heroes have access to a map (default key 'm' or at the top of the ui) 
    they can look at to find out where they or their team mates are. Apart from 
    the zone they start in, these maps will not have their suburbs named. You 
    can see the suburb perimeters on the map as the coloured lines around the 
    edges of certain areas - these colours give some small indication of how hard-
    core the criminals of that area are. Green areas are the easiest, yellow are 
    medium and red are the toughest suburb in each zone. 
    
    As you run around each zone, you will see that you leave behind an unshadowed 
    trail on the map. Once you have travelled enough through a suburb, the name 
    of the suburb will appear on the map for future reference.
    
    The location guide will list a suburb name (eg 'Downside') and its location on 
    the zone map (eg 'South'). Some estimation has been used here - some zones 
    stretch in several directions or are small and closely packed - but 
    hopefully this info will be enough to get you around (at least until you 
    uncover enough of the map yourself).
    
    You can travel between zones either through use of the Monotram System or by 
    moving through the zone gates. If you use the Monotram, you will be given a 
    list of zones that the line (either Green or Yellow) runs through - from this 
    list you can select your destination. If you use the gates, be aware there are 
    two types - the green gates (you can freely pass through these no matter what 
    level you are) and the secured gates (that require a hero have a minimum 
    security level before entry).
    
    Within each zone a list of villain groups and their approximate strength 
    (ie Lvls) can be found. These should be used as only guidelines rather than 
    absolute rules - you may find villains of higher or lower Lvls than indicated 
    or find a location crawling with a particular villain group one day only to 
    find it deserted the next.
    
    * Location Information: In order to find out your zone coordinates, use the
    "/loc" command. This will give you three numbers: the Y (North / South), the
    Z (height above / below ) and the X (East / West). This information can be 
    used to pinpoint the location of badges and shops all over Paragon City.
    
    
    2.1 ATLAS PARK

    Atlas Park is probably the most well-known location of Paragon City and one 
    of two areas where heroes will start in the city after being dropped off by 
    the out-of-town bus. With a skyline dominated by a huge statue of Atlas, this 
    area is under siege from a street gang called the Hellions who can be found 
    everywhere assaulting citizens and causing trouble.

    2.2 GALAXY CITY
    _______________
    The sister zone to Atlas Park and the other place a hero will start in 
    Paragon City. Galaxy City is rife with crime caused by the Hellions - it

    2.3 KINGS ROW
    _____________
    Kings Row will come as a shock to the hero coming out of Galaxy City or 
    Atlas Park - gone are the green grasses and clean buildings of these 
    safe areas, replaced with dilapidation and industrial decay. The Skulls 
    dominate the streets in this zone, with other villain groups secreting

    A mass of concrete pillars greets the earth-bound hero on arrival in Skyway

    zone. For those heroes on foot, prepare to race along side cars on the many 
    motorways that dominate Skyway City's landscape. Although ordinary citizens

    2.6 PEREZ PARK 
    ______________ 
    [Minimum Security Level: 7]
    Once a beautiful place to spend a day at a picnic, Perez Park is now infested 
    with villains to the point that no sane citizen would attempt a walk through 
    this park. Even heroes need to think twice before venturing into these woods - 
    dark supernatural entities have been seen in the trees, performing rituals for 
    unknown purposes. Outside of the park the zone is dominated by street gangs - 
    the Skulls rule the west side while the Hellions control the east.

    2.8 THE TUNNELS OF THE TROLLS
    _____________________________
    The tunnels that ran under Eastgate had probably existed for hundreds of years,
    but the explosions that destroyed Eastgate and created the Hollows have made
    access to this area much easier. As a result, this zone is flooded with Trolls
    who are further attempting to "redevelop" what is left of Eastgate with high
    explosives.
    
    NOTE: This zone has no neighbourhoods.
    
     - Lvl 13 - 15 Trolls can be found throughout the Tunnels, often with bombs

    around magical crystals.

    2.9 TALOS ISLAND 
    ________________ 
    Talos Island is a zone with only a little inhabited land - the majority of 
    this zone consists of open water. While this can make for some impressive 
    sunsets, it also means that non-flying heroes might find themselves getting 
    a bit wet if they attempt to travel to the unpopulated northern islands. Talos 
    Island itself is a busy (and crime-filled) area - the Tsoo, Freakshow and 
    Warriors can be seen battling it out on the streets for dominance. The natural 
    areas are not much safer - Devoured Earth creatures can commonly be found 
    outside of the civilised neighbourhoods.

    2.10 SEWER SYSTEM
    _________________
    Several Paragon City zones have a sewer access port where heroes can enter 
    the Paragon Sewer System. Numerous criminal elements have taken to the 
    underground to hide from justice, meaning that any hero who ventures down 
    here must be ready for almost anything and probably shouldn't journey down 
    there alone.
    
    You can enter the sewers from Atlas Park, Boomtown, Kings Row, Steel Canyon 
    and Skyway City. The Sewer System also allegedly contains links to the 
    Abandoned Sewer System, a much more dangerous place for heroes...

    2.11 BOOMTOWN 
    _____________ 
    [Minimum Security Level: 10]
    For heroes used to the populated environment of Paragon City's other zones, 
    Boomtown will come as a shock - this zone is a scene of destruction. Debris 
    litters the streets and few buildings remain standing upright. Along with

    area for their own illicit purposes.
    
    TRAINER: None

    ______________

    2.13 INDEPENDENCE PORT 
    ______________________ 
    As a centre of trade and industry for Paragon City, Independence Port 
    attracts more than its fair share of criminals, looking for a piece of 
    the action. The Family are currently the dominant power, but given the 
    number of Tsoo and The Council in the area, any hero attempting to clean 
    up this area will certainly find their hands full. Independence Port also 
    contains the entrance to Terra Volta.

    2.15 BRICKSTOWN 
    _______________ 
    Brickstown is perhaps most infamously known for being home to the Ziggurat, 
    Paragon City's prison. The absence of heroes and lack of available police 
    resources has seen numerous convicts escape the Zig's confines and makes 
    travel through this area dangerous. Complicating factors are other criminal 
    groups that are also operating in this area, but hopefully the introduction 
    of private security forces from the Crey Corporation will soon have things 
    back under control.

    ____________________ 
    Founder's Falls is Paragon City's most upmarket address, where anybody 
    who's anybody can be seen walking along the jetties or tending to their 
    yachts. All this prestige has a down side, however - Founder's Falls 
    also attracts the most elite criminals to it's pristine waterways. 
    Experienced heroes need only apply to the task of cleaning up this area - 
    without the right combination of experience and luck, any hero operating 
    in Founder's Falls will be risking a quick trip to the local hospital.

    3.0 PLACES TO SEE
    _________________
    Below are just a sample of things you _can_ see while you are in Paragon 
    City, but stand out for one reason or another as things you would be poorer 
    for missing while in the Birthplace of Tomorrow.
    
    
    3.1 STATUE OF ATLAS
    ___________________
    Perhaps the first major statue that many heroes see on arriving in Paragon 
    City, the statue of Atlas is eternally burdened with the weight of the world 
    - a strong symbol that new heroes would be wise to remember.
    
    
    3.2 GALAXY GIRL'S STATUE
    ________________________
    Located in in Galaxy City (just outside Freedom Corps HQ), those who wish to 
    learn about fallen heroes would do well to visit this statue dedicated to 
    Galaxy Girl.
    
    
    3.3 PARAGON POLICE DEPARTMENT
    _____________________________
    Located in Kings Row's Freedom Plaza, the Paragon Police Department is the 
    centre of police operations in Paragon City. Of particular note is the 
    large coin that sits at the front of the PPD - both heroes and citizens have 
    been known to use it as a backdrop for their portrait photographs.
    
    
    3.4 TALOS STATUE
    ________________
    The statue of the fallen hero Talos is an awesome sight, arising as it does 
    in the waters near Talos Island. It serves as both a testimonial to the 
    contribution Talos made to the people of Paragon City and as a symbol of 
    safety - that heroes like Talos will always watch over the people of 
    Paragon City. Young lovers and sight seers have been known to spend time on 
    the bridge in Helen's Point watching the sun rise over the Talos statue's 
    shoulder.
    
    
    3.5 THE UNFINISHED OVERBROOK DAM
    ________________________________
    In the south end of Faultline sits the half-finished shell of the Paragon
    City Reservoir. Prior to the start of its construction, it was hoped that
    this structure would help provide Paragon City with both water and hydro-
    electricity. Unfortunately, the invasion of the Rikti and the constant
    attacks on workers by a number of different villain groups saw investors
    in the dam project pull out and the money run out before the Reservoir 
    could be completed. Heroes in the area should take a moment to look down
    on the unfinished dam (or perhaps even explore the area) to remind 
    themselves of what will happen if they do not protect Paragon City.
    
    
    3.6 PARAGON DANCE PARTY
    _______________________
    Hidden in Paragon City is the Paragon Dance Party - a 24-hour rave where
    heroes can let their hair (or equivalent) down and dance their cares away.
    On a good night (or day), the "Pocket D" (as it is known) is full of 
    heroes looking to socialise. There are three different entrances to the
    Pocket D, each in a different zone. For heroes in the know, the Paragon
    Dance Party is the place to be (and to be seen!).
    
    You can access the Paragon Dance Party from the following locations:
    
    Steel Canyon: At the back door of a building in Silver Lake 
    (loc -1678, 0, -2735)
    
    Talos Island: On a street in New Sparta (loc 406, 160, 5572)
    
    Independence Port: In a small fenced area on Power Island (loc -836, 1, 1218)
    
    
    3.7 GRENDEL'S GULCH
    ___________________
    Located in the centre of the Hollows, Grendel's Gulch demonstrated with
    extreme clarity the destructive potential of the villians that populate
    Paragon City. On first entering the Hollows, one might believe that,
    despite being overrun by villains, things aren't that bad in the 
    neighbourhood once known as Eastgate. However, once a hero has started
    to move through the zone, it doesn't take long for the true picture of
    devastation to reveal itself, with Grendel's Gulch sitting at the 
    epicentre of the destruction. Heroes should take a trip to this area
    as a sobering reminder of what can happen if they fail in their task
    of stopping villainous plots. 
    
    
    
    ------------------------------
    
    
    4.0 MONSTERS, MOBSTERS, MERCENARIES - OH MY!
    ____________________________________________
    Entering Paragon City almost ensures a tourist of seeing some form of 
    organised crime gang, supernatural entities or superpowered miscreants at 
    work. Below is a list of the bad guys who inhabit Paragon City and brief 
    guide to the different types of villains you might run into.
    
    Heroes on missions should expect to come across Named villains. These 
    villains (usually Bosses, but sometimes Lieutenants) have come to 
    prominence within their group and often lead the group during illegal 
    activities. These Named villains will be mentioned within their villain 
    groups below as a "Most Dangerous and Wanted" list for heroes to watch 
    our for.
    
    Minions are often classified by the type of attacks they can make. 
    Here are some of the minion suffixes you may run into and what they mean:
    
    Brawler - Brawling
    Slugger - Bat
    Gunner - Machine Gun
    Slammer - Sledge Hammer
    Assault - Assault Rifle
    Inferno - Flame Thrower
    Chopper - Axe
    Buckshot - Shotgun
    Slicer - Dagger
    Bruiser - Super Strength
    Muscle - Power Punch
    Smasher - Morning Star
    Rifleman - Rifle
    Grenadier - Grenade Launcher
    Launcher - Missile Launcher
    Stunner - stun rifle
    Martial Artist / Fist - Martial Arts
    Slasher - Broadsword
    Hewer - Battle Axe 
    Swordsman - Katana / Rikti Sword
    Fire - Flamethrower
    
    
    4.1 HELLIONS 
    ____________ 
    Found in Atlas Park and Galaxy City, the Hellions are a gang that seek power 
    through black magic and involvement with demons. Although not very powerful 
    when in early zones, they are numerous, and an unprepared hero can find him-
     / herself overpowered if not careful. More powerful Hellions can sometimes 
    be seen near Circle of Thorns rituals, perhaps indicating a link between 
    the groups.
    
    TYPES: 
    Minions* - 
    Blood Brothers 
    
    Lieutenants* - 
    Fallen 
    
    *Attack Pre-/Suffixes -

    Named - 
    Burnscar 
    Battalion 
    Matchstick 
    Pyro 
    Revenant Enforcer
    Scorch
    
    
    4.2 THE SKULLS 
    ______________ 
    The Skulls are a death-obsessed street gang. They are easily recognisable 
    from the prominence of bones and skulls on their outfits. Skulls may 
    sometimes be found in the company of Vahzilok, indicating some sort of 
    relationship between the two groups - this relationship appears to be 
    predominantly hostile, however. Skulls can also occasionally be seen 
    beating on Hellions - a rivalry obviously exists between these two street 
    gangs. 
    
    TYPES: 
    Minions* - 
    Gravediggers
    
    Lieutenants* - 
    Deaths Head

    Marrowsnap 
    Kneebreaker 
    The Strong Man 
    BoneCrusher 
    Marrow Drinker
    
    
    4.3 CLOCKWORK 
    _____________ 
    Found in a number of zones, Clockwork are robotic constructs that have been 
    made from garbage. Occasionally they can be seen working on building more of
    themselves and can appear in large numbers in abandoned buildings or 
    scrapyards, which is of concern to any hero. 
    
    TYPES: 
    Objects -
    Box of Parts [creates Gears until destroyed]
    
    Underlings - 
    Gears [emerge from fallen Princes and Box of Parts]

    Clockwork King
    
    
    4.4 VAHZILOK 
    ____________ 
    Vahzilok are dead flesh, animated by some perverse power. It is possible that 
    the ranks of the Vahzilok are bolstered by citizens abducted from the streets 
    of Paragon City, but little is currently known about who or what is behind 
    the actions of these zombies. Vahzilok can sometimes be seen in direct 
    conflict with members of the Skulls.
    
    TYPES: 
    Minions - 
    Cadavers*
    Abominations*

    4.5 OUTCASTS
    _____________
    The Outcasts are a gang of elementally-powered youths who, instead of using 
    their power to help rebuild the City, choose to hinder it. Despite having 
    many powers and abilities similar to heroes, they have instead chosen to use 
    them against the citizens of Paragon City. It is this disregard for the 
    welfare of others that mean the Outcasts need to be stopped whenever and 
    wherever possible.
    
    *UPDATE: From Issue #2, most Outcast minions no longer appear to have attack
    suffixes of Brawler, Smasher, Slicer, etc. They now have more element-
    orientated powers, making them stand out more from the other street gangs.
    
    TYPES: 
    Minions -

    4.6 CIRCLE OF THORNS
    _____________________
    Mysterious magic users, the Circle of Thorns regularly attempts to abduct 
    citizens for use in their dark rituals. These rituals can be seen from a 
    distance, emitting an eerie green glow. Accompanying these magic users can 
    be ghosts and demons that will attack any hero who attempts to halt the 
    Circle of Thorn's evil ceremonies.

    4.7 THE LOST 
    ____________ 
    Another street gang, the Lost seem almost religious about their illegal 
    activities. It appears they are acting in the name of some great cause or 
    ideal, but one that will certainly not benefit of Paragon City. The Lost is 
    made up of Paragon City's homeless, perhaps held under some kind of thrall 
    by an unseen power. Some heroes have commented about a possible link between 
    the Lost and the Rikti, but no solid evidence appears to exist about their 
    relationships with each other.

    4.8 FIFTH COLUMN 
    ________________ 
    A well-trained and well-equipped paramilitary operation, the Fifth Column can 
    possibly draw its origins back to World War II, but little information about 
    this organisation currently exists. The recent Rikti invasion has seen them 
    emerge from the shadows and openly attempt to recruit new members from the 
    dispossessed. 
    
    UPDATE: As at the introduction of Issue #3, the Fifth Column have been 
    replaced by The Council following an internal coup.

    4.9 THE COUNCIL
    _______________
    Emerging from an coup within the Fifth Column, The Council possess the same
    training and resources that made the Fifth Column feared but are also backed
    by the mysterious abilities of its evil Kheldian leader, Nictus. How this 
    villain group will impact on the face of Paragon City is yet to be seen.

    4.10 TROLLS 
    ___________ 
    Another street gang, the Trolls are easily recognisable by their green skin 
    - a side effect of the massive doses of Superdine they have ingested. Other 
    side effects of their drug-taking include increased strength and fast 
    regeneration of injury, making the Trolls a force to be reckoned with. Trolls 
    have been seen selling drugs to other gangs, but have also been known to beat 
    on members of other gangs who have arrived in their territory. Some rumours 
    exist about a past relationship between the Trolls and the Hellions, but 
    neither group appears eager to discuss it.

    4.11 MINIONS OF IGNEOUS
    ________________________
    The Minons of Igneous appear to be the sires of the Earth's molten core.
    They are creatures of fire and magma, granite and quartz. Appearing after
    the destruction of Eastgate, they should be a concern to any hero who 
    attempts to pass through the area now known as the Hollows.

    4.12 THE TSOO 
    _____________ 
    This villain group poses a special danger to Paragon City. Not only do they 
    perform illegal acts themselves, but the Tsoo also appear to be leaning on 
    other villain groups in an attempt to make themselves rulers of the criminal 
    underworld. Thankfully this move has been resisted thus far, but if this goal 
    was ever achieved... heaven help the heroes! From the little intelligence 
    about them, it appears the Tsoo are powered by mystical tattoos as well as 
    specialist martial arts training  - a deadly combination that make them both 
    strong and versatile on the field of battle.

    4.13 HYDRA
    __________
    A mystery of nature, the Hydra appear to be creatures created from the slime 
    and muck of Paragon City's sewers. Little is known about this villain group, 
    other they are aggressive and very, very dangerous.

    4.14 WARRIORS 
    _____________ 
    A street gang with an ancient world theme, the Warriors allegedly take 
    their lead from the famed civilisations of the Romans, the Greeks, the 
    Spartans and others of that time. In truth, this just means they have 
    sought some justification for preying on society as they do, for despite 
    the famed cultures that the Warriors have associated them with, they are 
    just as barbaric as your common thug.

    4.15 THE FAMILY 
    _______________ 
    Organised crime has always been a part of Paragon City, despite the best 
    efforts of heroes and police. The Family is probably the best representative 
    of this fact - no matter what has been thrown at them, they have managed to 
    survive, adapt and even prosper in the Birthplace of Tomorrow. In fact, the 
    involvement of heroes in the affairs of the Family have made them worse than 
    ever; not only do they know how to deal with superpowers, Family are 
    increasingly using them as well.

    A group of high-tech thieves, the Sky Raiders have been known to associate 
    with the Family. The origin of this group is shrouded in mystery, but 
    rumours circulate that it consists of ex-military men and even some 
    former heroes.

    4.17 DEVOURING EARTH
    ____________________
    A radical environmental group, Devouring Earth appear to have arisen from the 
    Earth itself to fight against the encroachment of humanity. Found 
    predominantly in untouched natural areas, the Devouring Earth can be seen 
    helping nature to flourish while attacking those that disturb them or the 
    habitat they care for.

    A gang of drug- and cybernetically-enchanced thugs, the Freakshow preach a

    ______________
    Highly visible in their orange prison clothes, the Prisoners are those who 
    have escaped from the Ziggurat and now terrorise the citizens of Brickstown. 
    They tend to gather in large numbers and have two hobbies: 1) beating up 
    police officers and 2) beating up heroes who get too close.

    4.21 CREY
    _________
    Crey is a well-funded, highly visible corporation in Paragon City that 
    provides many of the citizens that live here with jobs. Its agents are some 
    of the best trained and equipped in the world and has provided incredible 
    help in preventing the City from falling into chaos with the death of the 
    heroes in the Rikti Invasion. From time to time a Crey agent is caught 
    committing illegal acts such as extortion or robbery, but for the most part 
    Crey does a fantastic job in protecting both heroes and citizens.

    4.22 RIKTI 
    __________ 
    If there is one villain group that citizens and heroes alike both hate and 
    fear, it is the Rikti. Responsible for the decimation of the world's hero 
    population during their failed invasion, the Rikti is an ever-present threat 
    to Paragon City. Currently stranded on Earth having failed in their invasion 
    attempts, the remaining Rikti forces should never be underestimated - if they 
    were ever able to re-open the link to their homeworld, it is almost certain 
    that Paragon City would fall...

    ____________
    Nemesis has a long and despicable history as a villain, both on a world-wide

    Prince of Automatons for his use of mechanical entities to do his bidding.

    Possibly the greatest threat to the Birthplace of Tomorrow after the Rikti,
    the Praetorians are an alternative universe version of Paragon City's 
    greatest heroes who appear intent on conquering our world. Ever wanted to

    4.27 SOLDIERS OF RULARUU
    ________________________
    This new extra-dimensional threat poses a great danger to Paragon City.
    This villain group can appear in large numbers out of portals they create.
    What they want is currently unclear, but they certainly appear to be hostile.
    Heroes must ensure they close the portals as soon as they appear to avoid
    being overrun by the Soldiers of Rularuu.
    
    NOTE: The Soldiers of Rularuu have not been seen in a while...

    _________________
    Arriving shortly behind the Kheldians were the Void Hunters, intergalactic

    Within Paragon City, certain creatures dwell that aren't necessarily 
    associated with any group or faction. However, they still pose a threat to
    the ordinary citizens of the City and need to be dealt with by heroes.
    
    TYPES:
    
    Lusca aka Luska aka the Giant Octopus in Independence Port

    5.0 CITIZENS OF PARAGON CITY
    ____________________________
    By clicking on a nearby citizen, heroes in Paragon City can get a bit of 
    information about the City's history, statistics of the hero or the 
    citizens' attitude to heroes, among other things. But which citizen should
    you talk to when you need to find something out?
    
    It appears that what they say has to do with the first letter of their name.
    The citizens who have names starting with the following letters will give 
    you the information mentioned next to them:
    
    A - 
    B - 
    c - Mentions heroes in the same area (mostly focusing on Magic origins)
    D - 
    E - Offical Real Time
    F - Official Paragon City Time
    G - Time (in minutes) of current log-in ("You have been logged in for 
        'xx' minutes.")
    H - switches between mentioning heroes in the same area and the number
        of time one of your powers has been used
    I - 
    J - 
    K - Makes comments eg "Move along, nothing to see here", "And that's when 
        I hit him"
    L - 
    M -
    N - Number of times "visiting Paragon City" (logging in)
    O - 
    P - 
    Q - 
    X - Mentions heroes in the same area
    Y - 
    Z -

    6.0 FINAL NOTES
    _______________
    If I've got something wrong or left something out, please contact me and I 
    will attempt to fix it. This guide still has large chunks that need filling
    and any help given to add content would be greatly appreciated.
    
    
    6.1 THANKS
    __________
     - To Cryptic Studios: This game rocks hard. What else is there to say?
     - To NCSoft: This has been the best beta test I've been in by far. And 
    release (apart from the "not available in my country" bit) has been great
    too.
     - To the CoH community: I stuck around for CoH, but you guys made the time 
    [sorta] fly by ;-)
     - To my gf: who realises what this game means to me and generally leaves 
    me alone during play sessions. [As at 27/3/04, the gf mentioned here leveled
    up into my wife, but the same message applies :-)]

    6.2 CONTRIBUTORS & VERSION NOTES
    ________________________________
    Version 0.1 - Developed from some personal exploration, MacAllen's spawn and 
    zone posts and Gaffer's trainer post in patch notes.
    
    Version 0.15 - Big thanks to: Macallen for filling in the Villain groups 
    that I had missed along with some zone info; Cyberhero for a more detailed 
    breakdown of Kings Row; Geist for doing the same bits as Macallen, only 
    slower ;-)
    
    Version 0.18 - Added some more information about Villain groups names, 
    added "Name" Boss information and added to Steel Canyon zone info.
    
    Version 0.20 - A big thanks to all contributors: Macallen, Circeus, Boodikka, 
    Captain Amazing, Oni, Magni and Astartus. Lots of villain information added.

    from the forums include those by: Luger, NPG, Macallen, Astartus, Hellshot, 
    Xanatos, Plasma_Wisp, Captain Amazing, circeus, Lil_Pips. Thankyouverymuch 
    to all!
    
    Version 0.30 - Spent some time exploring Boomtown so I recorded what I saw 
    there. Didn't manage to completely map the zone, but hope to do so shortly.  
    Changed the layout for the Named villains to make them easier to read. This 
    guide appeared at Gamefaqs from v0.30 onwards.
    
    Version 0.60 - With release and the character wipe coming, I thought I should 
    get my butt into gear and look at some of the zones I hadn't visited yet. 
    Died several times, but added information a heap of information to zones and 
    to villain groups. Added in Talos Statue information. Thanks goes to Grey_Gaeru 
    and Astartus for some more Named villain information as well as zone info.
    
    Version 0.65 - Changed the order of the villain groups to a more logical order. 
    This may be the last update for a little while (from me, anyway) since I didn't 
    manage to get a pre-order disk (thank you, Amazon!). Some AP / GC information 
    was sent to me by Icereaver (Virtue Server) - some bits of Paragon City have 
    obviously changed since beta. Grave Digger provided some store information and
    Joeschmoe4ever provided some zone / security lvl info.
    
    Version 0.70 - Added in Sewer Network information. Lord Thrash sent me some 
    more villain information, as did ss5joshua about higher lvl villain names.
    
    Version 0.71 - Added in some content info related to "Issue #1: Through the 
    Looking Glass". Also added in King's Row information submitted by Ezel 
    Kabakaba.
    
    Version 0.72 - Added in information on Faultline and a few named villains.
    SaikoMantis provided the location of the Subgenics store in Skyway City. Also
    added some "Issue #2: Shadows of the Past" information on villain updates. 
    Robotech_Master updated me on Eden's true security lvl requirment. Badge 
    information comes from 
    
    http://www.unseen.net/coh/badges.php
    
    which Lopt kindly agreed to let me use in this guide.
    
    Version 0.82 - A big thanks to Wusheng for putting me on to how the things
    that the citizens of Paragon City say are linked to the first letter of
    their name. I've put this into Section 5.
    
    
    6.3 VERSION NOTES:
    __________________
    - I've included this section as of v.074 after realising that the 
    Contributors section was becoming more of a set of version notes for what
    changes had been made. From now on, section 5.2 will just include contributor
    thanks and section 5.3 will list the guide changes. - 
    
    * Version 0.73 - Added in a lot more information on Faultline and have finally
    finished mapping this zone. Added in "The Unfinished Overbrook Dam" into the 
    _Places to See_ section because I think this area is pretty impressive and 
    shows off CoH's scale very well. Finalised Boomtown. Lots of badges added. 
    Have also started to enter store locations by their /loc coordinates.
    
    * Version 0.74 - Added in most of the Skyway City store loc's. Added in some
    more villain information for Clockwork, Tsoo and Outcasts.
    
    * Version 0.75 - Added in some more store locations and mapped The Hollows.
    
    * Version 0.76 - Added in some more store locations, added The Tunnels of
    the Trolls and the location of the Paragon City Dance Party as at this date.
    
    * Version 0.78 - Fixed an incorrect badge coordinate in Atlas Park. Added
    in Freakshow information and some more shop locations.
    
    * Version 0.80 - Added in some of the information about items introduced
    in "Issue #3: A Council of War" (and yes, I know I'm beind the times on 
    this! :-).
    
    * Version 0.81 - Replaced all Fifth Column locations with The Council and
    added in a few more villain names.
    
    * Version 0.82 - Added in badge locations for The Hollows and started to
    add in data about "Issue #4: Colosseum". Added in information supplied 
    by Wusheng about what Paragon citizens say.
    
    * Version 0.83 - Added in badge locations for Talos Island and Independence
    Port, as well as for the Expert, Intellectual and Ghost Hunter historical 
    badges.
    
    * Version 0.84 - Added in more villain information and badge information for
    the Researcher and Scholar badges.
    
    * Version 0.84 - With some sadness I've accepted the fact that I am unable 
    to keep up with the updates. "Issue #6: Along Came A Spider" has come out and 
    I'm still lacking info from Issue #2! As such, I'm abandoning this guide.
    Instead, I recommend that you go to http://www.vidiotmaps.com to find out
    the important features of all zones. Even better, download their map patch
    which will let you see the revised maps in-game (although this may be 
    against a strict interpretation of CoH's terms of service, Cryptic / NCSoft
    haven't imposed any sanctions against users of the map patch at this point).
